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…

Career Path – Is This The Right Path?

We’re often stuck in our career as much as we are in general life, sometimes more so! What  happens when you’re not sure if you’re on the right career path? Let me offer you a reading on that subject. We spend so much of our lives working, often working for others in jobs we don’t like with people we’d rather not be friends with on social media. I find that a damn shame, but I’ve been there, done it, walked away. Sometimes though, we get it right and if that’s the case, you won’t be needing my help. If you do, I write this for you. What are the pro’s of work? Every job has it’s good and bad points. Focus for a few moments on the good. The Woodwose suggest that you’ve got the respect and you command it. You give it out when you need to and you…

Listen for the Controlling Hidden Emotions

I asked the Wildwood for advice for this coming week. It’s response was humorous! Listening to the controlling hidden emotions can be a journey and if you want help to listen to yours, come and book your private consultation. The Wildwood’s sense of humour isn’t something I usually see, but for the week ahead and what advice it can give, makes me chuckle a little! The first card up for “What to look forward to” was The Wren, Page of Arrows. So, simple, honest, straight forwards communications. Do you look forward to chatting straight talking people? They tell you what you don’t want to hear, they’re honest with you and they don’t stand for your sweeping nonsense. Well, I DO enjoy people and clients like that and I enjoy talking with people who ask questions. I enjoy engaging with those that can make me be honest with myself too. Offering…

Change for the Tarot Academy

The Tarot Academy are moving locations as of December’s Meet Up. I’m looking forward to the change, having a new home where we can grow and expand. Hallo Barlow Mow! Change is never easy and adapting to change when it’s forced upon you, but when you find that you need to change to grow and its excites you, I feel you should grab it with both hands and embrace it tightly! This is what’s happened with the Midlands Tarot Meet Up Group (aka, The Tarot Academy) where we’ve moved from the little snug in Stoke Prior in Bromsgrove to the function room upstairs in Barley Mow in Droitwich. I asked the Wildwood what I needed to understand about this big change to the group I help run with Mary. The King of Vessels has one foot in the water, one out of it. He’s in touch with his emotions but…

Wildwood : Follow the Path

Path working is hard work and taking Tarot advice as you walk along life’s winding road, can be a good thing. If you want to know, ask. If you don’t want to know, avoid asking. This week, I’ve taken the Pathway Spread that the deck comes with to ask: What do I need to know this week? As usual, the Wildwood has been somewhat direct. This deck never misses its mark. (It never misses me and hits the wall) What’s the issue, dear?! Three of Arrows ~ Jealousy Emotions may be tense this coming week. Now, I know that there’s a few eclipses to occur and that things are messed up, hung up and delayed in a meandering loop until around the tenth of October. Until then, due to the angst of not being able to drive things forward, there may be feelings of resentment that can be destructive. This…

Wildwood : Still as a….

This week, Captain Still, the King of Vessels himself, the Heron, stops by my little Wildwood corner. But he’d better keep his beak out of my fish pond! Several years ago, a Heron properly emptied my fish pond, bar one fish. When I got it stocked up again, the netting went over the top, keeping Mr Fish-Eater out of reach of my new little fishes. However, they’re not just about the empting of fish-ponds! The Heron, the King of Vessels, is very much a symbol of a silent figure. If you’ve ever seen one in the ponds of many of our parks, you’ll recall how graceful they look. Until they try and take flight, then they look gangly and awkward. Heron’s are great at waiting, they’re patient, silent and when they strike, quite deadly, at least to the fish they’ve just captured. This isn’t a card I’ve pulled out very…

Wildwood : Call to Action

Even though I’m yawning my head off, the King of Stones is calling me to into action. Tired?! Ha! That’s for wimps! (NOT!) I’m one of these creatures that requires eight hours sleep, per day or more! However, the last few mornings I’ve been woken up at a most unsociable hour by the boys. Whilst I’d love to put my head down and sleep, I’ve more chance, being honest, of plaiting fog. When the King of Stones came out via my Wildwood app (courtesy of Fools Dog) I chuckled a little and thought: Being called upon to act for the good of the pack! Then I thought, what IS the pack? The family, for certain. Calling to action? Or calling in reinforcements? Ha! Calling on Daddy (my husband) to be the daddy and lay down the law to the boys. As I said above, I have to have eight hours…

Wildwood : Court-ly Advise

This week, I’ve pulled a three card reading from the Wildwood and for the first time in a long time, every card is a court. Crumbs! Courts can be a royal pain in the bum. They can represent other people, the type of situations, parts of your thoughts and psyche: They’re diverse and as such, a pest to translate and work into your readings. Alison Cross does a fan-tabulous blog on Courts, called This Game of Thrones, so if you’re struggling with the Courts, get visiting her blog. However, with three of them, using the Wildwood’s Pathway Spread, we’ve a lot to work out, so let’s be getting on with it. Here’s the first card, the Knight of Stones, which is the middle card.   What does this Court represent? He’s the one running at full pelt. Is he running away from someone? Is he running towards something or just…

Wildwood : Weekend vLog & Decisions

The weekend is nigh and I slide under the barrier for posting any cards beyond the Blog Hop this week as if I were scoring in a rounders / baseball game. There’s a decision to be made but how swiftly do I make this said, decision? The vLog will do most of the talking, but here are the three cards. I hope that WordPress does what I want it to do with the graphics, but whilst I babble on, here’s my written thoughts on it.   King of Arrows is a character that’s direct, straight to the point, swift, dangerous. He strikes quickly and accurately, without discrimination. Whatever he’s representing for these next two days, it’s going to be swiftly and directly. The Two of Arrows is about making a decision, though her bow certainly does not appear to be broken under her feet. She’s weighing something up, but it’s…

Wildwood CotD : King of Arrows

It’s Sunday and we have the King of Arrows come out and join us. If you wanted someone today who was straight talking, could give honest advice and be totally direct in delivering it, this is the card. This is the King of Arrows, represented here in the Wildwood by the Kingfisher. In the card, we see the Kingfisher flying over a still lake. All is quiet and it feels like it’s early in the morning with this card. When this fellow comes out, I always find that I ought to bite my tongue, mind what and who I say it to and be careful not to hurt those around me. There was a rather pertinent graphic post on Facebook this morning which matches the warning I usually need when the Kingfisher comes out to play. I found it was rather prophetic and synchronistic. Whilst we might appreciate straight talking…
