Acting your Shoe Size, Not Your Age!

It’s very easy to get swept up in the roles of modern life. Sometimes though, we need reminding to act our shoe size & not our age! How can the Tarot help you do just that? Whatever your shoe size is, the Tarot can help you get your head out of your own butt. It’s not often I engage in being a child. Like everyone else, I get my head down & get on with it, forgetting that I also need to be carefree regularly enough to keep myself refreshed & chirpy. Yeah, I get dour, snappy & cranky like everyone else! I need to remember my shoe size at times, not always my age! My daughter (who is not quite 5) gets too serious for her little boots at times. The boys certainly do & we’re all human after all. I developed this little 3 card spread to help…

Can you be Your Own Super-hero ?

We all need a superhero in our lives. Some we wish to meet, others, we get to be. This week, I want to focus on what can we do to be our own hero. I’m sure we all know the song, “Holding Out for a Hero“. It’s been used for TV adverts & movies since it came out. The striking voice of Bonnie Tyler is unmistakable, unique & different. The words of the song though, have us waiting for the knight in shining armour or the hunky fireman coming into our lives. The truth is, that’s rarely going to happen. We need to learn to be our own “superhero”, especially given the news at the moment with all the celebrities being accused & hung out to dry via the media for goodness knows what. Can we be our own hero? I think we can. In fact, I know we can. We’re…

When the Unexpected Happens : The Wildwood Helps

We all get things that happen to us unexpectedly, that’s a part of life.  How we deal with the unexpected is what makes us unique & very individual. To be the best person in such situations, can the Tarot help? The quick and honest answer here is; yes, it can!  The Tarot can show us options, give us advice on how to handle it, what to pay attention to & sometimes, even when to walk away. It’s often noted that the Tower/Blasted Oak is the card that says; curve ball! The unexpected hit & it hit hard. Not just a Cat 5 hurricane, but a tsunami & earthquake hit our lives somehow, or as it feels like, all at blooming once! So, when the unexpected happens, what do you do to combat it? Drink coffee? Eat chocolate? Both? Make a G&T? (Not for me, can’t drink the stuff, I’m a…

Gemini New Moon & Middle Beltane

It’s a New Moon & the fires of Beltane still burn brightly. What can the Gemini New Moon provide us on insights? We’re in the middle time between Beltane & as we’re approaching a new moon (which will be in Gemini at 20:45 25th May BST) I thought it prudent to see what energies are around us at this time. Gemini’s love to ask questions & find out answers. If you’ve ever worked with a Gemini they can be fantastic & very “bulldog” like in their endeavours. On the receiving end, they’re not known for letting go until they’ve gotten what they’ve set out to find. Woe betide you if you even dare to lie to them. You’ll be done to them if you do! Gemini attention to detail can be both fantastic and a proper pain in the proverbial. It depends on how they come across with their tenacity.…

Venus Is Now Direct, which means… ? 

Venus went direct in the skies as of April 15th, 2017.  What does that little planet of love going direct mean to us? Well, firstly, it just isn’t that simple, as much as I’d love it to be! To move forward, it firstly had to square up to another planet, Saturn. Now that this seems to be over & done with, we can get on with things, can’t we? Well, yes… there are other planets in retrograde, Saturn being one & it will be until August 25th. So, we’ve several more months of time seeming to drag, when in fact, it’s doing its normal thing! However, we can still take the time to do some self-loving & care, now that Venus is back to something of her “old” self. Even Mercury is beginning to pull forward (it goes direct again on May 2nd) so things should start to clear up. Well,…

The After Effects of Trauma

Going through something traumatic such as a mugging can really bugger you up. I explore ways of dealing with it & the after effects of trauma with the Tarot.  Having something violently removed from you shakes you up, no matter what was removed, how it happened or where you were. Items are just that, items. When you’re physically assaulted to get that possession & you fight back, it adds to the trauma when the battle is over with, no matter how much “training” you’ve had. Trauma can last for a time, or go away quickly. Some people are great at getting back into the saddle quicker than others, to “get back to normal” & act as if it never happened. Some, play the events over & over in their heads as their brain processes the emotions & logic behind. Inevitably “shoulda, woulda, coulda” comes up pretty quick. If only I’d…

How Wild Are You? The Wildwood Finds Out

I asked for questions for my blog and this one made me chuckle.  How wild are you? Let’s find out (I can draw you 3 cards for £10) and have a little fun with the Tarot.  The Cards & Spread  Image What’s your inner wild side? 3 of Stones What’s your public wild side? 10 of Stones How can you embrace them both? 8 of Arrows The Reading  My Inner Wild Side came out as the 3 of Stones. This card is about tapping into my creativity, understanding things and coming up with practical solutions that make people happy. I also know, from experience that sometimes what you need isn’t what you want. It’s tricky to know the difference every now & again. My Public Wild Side was the 10 of Stones, I love my family and the home. I’m a home bird, always have been and it’s obvious to those who…

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…

Hello 2017, I’ve Been Expecting You.

2017 is finally here, so let’s hello to the New Calendar Year. As this year begins, let’s set our intentions for what we want to achieve. It’s only been a week or two, but what kind of start has it been for you? We said “Hello” to 2017 as it handed us a blank 365-blank book for us to write our life stories into. I hope no-one else is holding your pen, by the way! I’ve shared this spread from Joanna Powell Colbert’s Gaian Tarot site, with permission. The Cards:  1. What do I leave behind in the Old Year? ~ 3 of Arrows 2. What do I open up to in the New Year? ~ 6 of Arrows 3. Key Opportunity of the New Year ~ Major 18, The Moon on Water 4. Key Challenge of the New Year ~ Major 21, The World Tree 5. Hidden concern (pull…
