Priestess Tarot : It’s All Change for me!

Don’t panic, I’m not going anywhere! I’m able to change things around as the new academic year gets underway. Now that all the kids are in school full-time (bar any sickness they might incur) I’m able to take day time bookings.  This change is quite a scary time for me, though the kids seem to be in their element! For the first time in a decade, I don’t have someone asking me for sweets, lunch, food, to help them with the toilet. I don’t have two school runs to do (half day collection from the nursery) & I can please myself! Whilst the daily housework may now get done in an hour (rather than 3!) I have more time to dedicate to you, to help you by offering Tarot consultations. This is a big change from the few hours each evening I had spare. The kids are great & know…

Pyramid Spread & Saturn Retrograde

There are many spreads that are available out there, easily accessible thanks to the Internet.  One of my favourites is the pyramid spread, wider at the bottom then up to the point of what to do next. It can be reversed from the single point again to be as large going forwards as you need or want it to be. I often use this pyramid spread when I want insight on where I am, what to overcome & what the outcome is likely to consist of. The question for this week is; What do I need to be aware of during this Saturn Retrograde? FYI, Saturn doesn’t go direct again until August (yes, that long) so these months may be zooming passed in reality, but it’s not going to feel like time is moving or things are progressing at all. Days may feel longer than they actually are. The Spread:  Bottom, Row…

Wildwood Shares ~ The Bow Spread

When the Wildwood was launched, it came with a worthy book, detailing a lot of things about this earthy deck. One of the sections has the spreads that Mark designed for this deck & I’ve chosen to illustrate the Bow Spread for you with this week’s question. To be honest, I’ve never gotten into the bigger spreads of this deck, though Mark himself has kindly shown me it (then again, I’ve not done the homework on this spread, so totally my fault) There are some of the spreads that I have used, like the Pathway Spread (which is 3 cards) but the whole Bow Spread I know isn’t printed the way Mark wanted it. The second card, The Bow, is actually raised above the line the spread on page 145 shows it as. (Yes, I’ve made a note in my book so I know). Remember when I said above that…

Venus is Retrograde : The Wildwood Explains

My astrology friends tell me that Venus is retrograde until 15th April. What does that mean to us mere mortals, struggling through life? The planets going retrograde or backwards is well-known. We can tell when Mercury is going backwards, we’re hit with technological issues or people just don’t listen. With Venus, it’s a little more complicated I think. Venus is the brightest star in the sky, after The Sun. She hangs around with the Moon & is often known as the Morning Star or the Evening Star, depending on when she comes to “hang out”. During a Venus retrograde, lots of things suddenly feel off.  Your head might feel it’s about to explode, dreams may be off & wonky. What you wish for may not manifest right now & what you value may change drastically during a Venus Retrograde. I asked the Wildwood how best to proceed during this Venus…

Getting Off the HangUp with The Wildwood

Have you ever wondered how on Earth you got suckered into worrying about the small stuff & how do you get off the hangup? I know it’s time to let go of the hangup I’m having about my own social media numbers, whilst still keeping a track of them. Let’s explore how I can let that go. This year I’ve been paying attention more to my social media numbers than I did in 2016. Partly because it’s a target or drive in my business, but if you don’t know I’m here, how can you buy a reading from me? It’s rather a complex situation that I’ve gotten rather “hung up on” recently. So after a quick discussion with some others, another reader asked me: “What do your cards say?” So, thanks to Hermit’s Lamp shining the way for me, here’s this week’s blog post. I hope it helps you get unstuck…

What would happen if I Focus on…

What would happen if you focused on the results of your efforts rather than your efforts?  What could happen if you choose to focus on both: The end result and the efforts you put in? Deciding what to focus on can be tricky.  We all need more money,  we all want more things,  we all want the better things.  During these tricky times,  it’s hard to get the balance right.  We focus sometimes on the wrong  things, micro manage ourselves into holes we struggle to get out of. What might happen if we were to focus on two aspects? I suggest focusing on the end goal & how you might get there. Between the two is the bridge,  the “how we get there” from where we are now. Reading Points What’s my main goal? The Guardian What’s my end result? Knight of Bows What’s the way to connect the two? The Hooded Man The…

America, What Will Happen Now?

America, what will happen when the election is over? This is a question with so many ramifications, its tricky to answer! What will happen to America after this election? Watching the American election, or even keeping a slight track on it and you cannot help but ask the question: What will happen once the circus is over? No doubt the circus will find a way to hop on over the UK, it usually does. When the dust settles, when the clowns have gone home, what will happen then? I asked The Wildwood what might happen. The Reading: The first card out was the Three of Arrows. To me, this is saying that some (okay, probably fair to say that half) aren’t going to like the final result. America will speak & the loudest, most popular voices will be heard and acted upon. There will be some who will wonder what the heck happened.…

Why Me? The Wildwood Answers.

Why me? Well, why not? Should it be someone else that travels your life journey? The “Why Me?” question implies something of a defeatist attitude. We all get down from time to time and we all think: Why me?! occasionally. Staying there can cause more problems than turning it around from “Why me?” to “Try me!” My children certainly do not like me when I turn to them and say: “try it” when they’re pushing the boat out. They don’t like it either when they’re whining and my reaction is to “Go and try it.” There’s a brilliant meme that’s been hitting Facebook and I think it ties very well into answering this question. It doesn’t have to be the Devil that asks, though it is usually someone we don’t like, adding more to our plate when frankly, we can do without that kind of nonsense. The boss, for example,…

When Am I Going To Get A Break?

We do sometimes look up at the sky and think: Come on, gimme a break! But when are you going to catch a break? Sometimes, just sometimes, we need the Wheel of Luck to turn in our favour. Sometimes, just sometimes it does, but not after we’ve howled at the moon and asked: When am I going to get a break?! This question has come from my Twitter feed. Being in the right situation at the right time is the luck and good fortune of others. It’s not for us everyday folks, is it? The truth is, even those that seem to be blessed with good fortune for “being in the right place at the right time” have had to work at it. The situation they’ve struck lucky at is sometimes of their own making. Chances are, you are watching a situation unfold that they’ve spent weeks, if not months, manufacturing…

Father’s & Lithia

Father’s Day, Litha, Full Moon, our British Astronaut comes home and goodness knows what else, all in the space of 48 hours.  Back on Mother’s Day (UK time), I created this spread for our wonderful mum’s. It can be used again for the dads and the male role models in our lives.  Being a father is a word. Being a daddy and celebrating Father’s Day is so much more! There’s a magnet on my fridge: “Anyone can be a father, it takes someone special to be a daddy.” And it does. A father’s love can be tough, the buck stop to children’s inability to listen to their mother (who thinks she’s now a broken record!) or the final (and a favourite) one of: “Wait until your father gets home!” However, not all father’s have iron hands: some have a good mix of a velvet glove and an iron hand, others have…
