Good morning, Lovelies.
Today’s message is about Skill, Diplomacy, Powerful Energy
Tarot of the Day: The Magician

The Magician
represents intelligent and skilful communication; whether that ‘s communing
with nature, the elements, or the other side of the veil or, communication with
people. This card is a very powerful, positive omen of newness and freshness;
Ideas, plans, innovations, patterns are all affected by the power you yield,
today.

In areas where you
have been feeling there is no movement or feeling powerless, this card lets you
know, that time is at an end. Today, creativity will increase and improve your
position. 
Pay attention to synchronicity; no matter how “small” the
‘coincidence’ know that it is the Universe clearing your path to give you the
knowledge, strength, and inspiration you need.

💚
This is the perfect time to
find a new job or to ask for and receive a promotion. If your work is in a
creative field, you’ll find your ideas will be met with excellent comprehension
and may lead you to “bigger and better things.”

💙
If you’re in a relationship, today you are
likely to see new or deeper levels of commitment and joy.

If you are in the market for a new romance, this is a great time to meet
someone new so, “get out and meet people.”

🧡
The Magician seeks to remind you that you have the power to make
a difference, in your life and in the greater world. Focus your energy, believe
in yourself, and watch things happen.

Peace out…

Have a magical day, Lovelies… 

This card again… okay… 3 of Disks.. You know last time I pulled this I was having trouble working then suddenly I spent the whole weekend working on things that needed to be done. I guess it’s not over.

Passion of Mars in the Diligence of Capricorn. An explosion of effort in creative and laborious activities. Expect to be busy and engaged with others as things develop.

How badly do you want it? Do your actions equate it?

Advice to stay grounded and centered this week: Knight of Wands.

Loyalty to friends and passion in works. Always on the go and ready for exploration. Take on challenges with a strong will and sense of humor. Display feelings on the sleeve so everyone knows you’re for real.

Sometimes to stay balanced doesn’t mean keeping your head down. Especially if one’s nature is already as such, you need a little oomph to counter-balance it.

The Golden Thread Tarot (Tina Gong)

Walls are limitations to freedom; However, our energy, focus, and resources are finite. Boundaries become grounding when we reach degrees of exhaustion. The balance in this is where do walls become obstacles and where do they become self-preservation?

Can we have both? Maybe these things are negotiable?

Four of Pentacles, The Hermetic Tarot (1979, Godfrey Dowson)

Card of meditation is (again) The Magician. Never cock block creativity! When inspiration strikes be the lightning rod it grounds through you. Otherwise the power is internalized and can become corrosive.

This may feel like an impulse to think about, act on, write about, dance to, draw, paint, or speak. Let it out and let it flow. You are the conduit through which the Universe is attempting to make things manifest. It can be the urge to resolve issues and problem solve through conversation or action. You don’t want the Cosmos to be bitter, do you?

Do it! Do it now!

A super busy day so I’m only posting my reading from this morning now!

Looking back at the previous days and reflecting: The Sun reversed.

I thought maybe it’s a soured joy or love. Embodiment of success with an air of doom. But I’m considering that it means finding light in the dark. Yesterday I was surrounded by friends and laughter almost out of nowhere. It may not last, but it felt so so nice and needed in that moment.

The next few days coming up: The Magician.

I was thinking a lot about hosting a group ritual and got very excited so maybe I should go through with it! But really this card tells me to have no doubt, no hesitation with making dreams reality and to just follow through with that deep inner divine inspiration to act on dreams.

I’ve been in such a slump, I hope the cycles will change in my favor soon enough.

The Rider-Waite Tarot (1910, A.E Waite and Pamela Colman Smith)

Okay, so I have a question about cartomancy (I hope it makes sense) if you were to give a general description of someone's personality, would it makes sense to remove the face cards and only use them for the reading or should I still use the entire deck?

Hello! You can really do either options.

When you specifically pull cards out of the deck and knowingly place them into positions in Tarot spreads we call these cards ‘significators’. They signify an aspect of something we would like to put into question. In regards to someone’s personality, a court card to represent them could be placed—the cards that fall around them in the spread would be random.

Another option is to section off cards in the deck, such as pulling out only major cards, only numbered pip cards, or only court cards. This is quite useful if you want to narrow the ‘output’ information of your ‘input’ question. Limiting cards to court cards can help you understand nuance to personality when you pull 1-2 cards from the 16. For example, you could do the Sun Moon Star Tarot spread with court cards only to see which personas dominate the known and hidden selves.

If you’re going for something general it may be best to simplify. Just use all the cards, and only pull one. Ask one specific open-ended question (who, what, where, when, why, how).

Have fun, be nice!

Photo of myself just before our Samhain group ritual on the beach. It was a surreal setting immersed in darkness, the sound of waves crashing, and the sweet smell of everyone’s incense mixed with smoke. It was a fantastic group and beautiful ritual.
