Crystal Visions Tarot

The Knight of Cups gallops into the scene, like a knight in shining armor. Although he actually is a knight in shining armor…and he’s even carrying a bouquet of flowers and a goblet of wine (or something).

This guy is a diehard romantic and he is here to remind you not to let this part of yourself fade away. Don’t stop following your heart and living life like its an adventure. Some may say your airy-fairy, but who cares?

When deciding where to go or what to do today, listen to your gut feelings and your heart’s desires. Today is the day to let your chattering mind take a backseat and go on pure intuition. Life is way more fun that way!

If you could be this romantic, unicorn riding knight just for today, what would you do differently? Let me know in the comments below…

Tuesday’s Oracle Card: Open the Door to your Psychic Self!

secret doorwayThe Secret Doorway oracle card, from the Wild Wisdom of the Faerie deck, is all about “Working with intuition, Second sight opening, Dimensional doorways.”

The stars and planets have aligned and now is the right time for you to really explore your natural-born intuitive gifts. No more excuses!

Sign up for that class or even start your own psychic group, if that idea appeals to you. You won’t realize how psychic you really are until you let go of your inhibitions and start practicing.

Here’s a fun psychic challenge to try: get a magazine and, with your eyes closed, open to a random page and place your hand over it. Attempt to “see” with the palm of your hand and record your observations. Then open your eyes and see if the image you saw in your mind was similar to what was on the page.

Seven of Swords: What are you avoiding? (Monday)

The Paulina Tarot

Monday’s Tarot card is the Seven of Swords and it suggests you are trying to sneak away from something.

It can be tempting to shirk responsibility for something, especially if that something feels out of your comfort zone and a bit scary.

Normally I am all about shirking responsibility, but this time it feels like you need to persevere and not give up just because something is difficult.

Most importantly, don’t run from your thoughts today….observe them carefully because they hold the key to what is really going on with you. Examine your thoughts as if they were a sly intruder who has snuck into your mind and is plotting mischief!

In the comments below, spill the beans on what it is that you are avoiding today…

Decode Your Celebrity Obsessions With Tarot

I was standing in line at the grocery store yesterday, reading Star magazine (my trusted news source) when an idea for a really fun Tarot exercise came to me.

Do you ever wonder why you are fascinated by particular celebrities or fictional characters? I do. And I figured there had to be some deep, twisted psychological explanation for it. So I decided to consult my Tarot cards to get the juicy deets…

Step One:
Ask yourself what celebrity/fictional character do I find most fascinating? (or, which celebrity do I have a crush on?). Then, go through your Tarot deck and pick out 1-3 cards that best represents this person. These are the qualities that you are powerfully drawn to, whether you realize it or not.

If you don’t care about celebrities or fictional characters and have no idea who anyone is, then you can substitute a real person in your life – preferably someone you feel drawn to and find extremely intriguing. Like the long-eyelashed mailboy at your office, or the neighbor’s wife. Or your spouse, I guess.

Whoever it is, ask yourself who they would be in the Tarot. Are they the bright eyed and bushy tailed young man in The Fool? The stuffy, constipated Emperor? The spazzy juggler in Two of Pentacles? Or perhaps a combination of the three?

Step Two:
Ask yourself what that Tarot card means to you right now.

  • What significance does it have in your life?
    • Does this Tarot card embody the traits you wish you had?
      • Or the things you are missing in your life?
        • How do you express the energy of this card in your life right now?
        • If you have chosen more than one card, look for repeating symbols and similarities

When I did this Tarot experiment, I picked James Bond as my fascinating fictional character (the Daniel Craig version). I am intrigued by the way he coldly kills people, rides motorbikes on rooftops, heartlessly kills people, jumps out of moving trains and kills people, all without giving it a second thought. So sexy!

The three Tarot cards that, for me, represent James Bond are The Moon, Five of Wands and Eight of Cups. The Moon because he is so mysterious, Five of Wands because he always seems to be in a tussle with someone, and the Eight of Cups because he is always scampering off into the night after bedding some foxy lady.

Without boring you to tears with the details of my personal life, I will say that these three cards accurately reflect what’s going on for me right now.

The Five of Wands represents an inner struggle of conflicting interests (I want to do this… no, I want to do that), Eight of Cups reveals that I am indeed turning my back on something and The Moon illustrates my desire to keep my life very private and my feelings hidden.

In the comments below, tell me what celebrity (or person) you chose and what cards you picked to represent them and why….can’t wait to hear!!!!
