Week Ahead Reading for Feb 18-24

Misc Blog Posts (1).png

Happy Sunday, Folx! A new week is nearly at our doorstep and I can already tell it will be a good week. Why? Because I said it will be, hah! Pisces season starts tomorrow at 4:04 pm (MST) and we have a Full Moon in Scorpio showing up on Tuesday the 19th at 8:54 am (MST). I’m so looking forward to this moon to not only lay down some intentions but to focus on some new art - I always get a big energy boost when the moon is in Scorpio.

This week I’m using the Spoila Tarot by Jessa Crispin and Jen May. I truly adore this deck and I’m so glad I didn’t let it slip out of my fingers a couple weeks ago. I was in a tarot deck funk and was ready to sell/trade a lot of my decks to freshen things up - hate when that mood sets in, glad I didn’t act on it! Anyways, enough rambling, let’s check out the cards for the week.

1550450023937.jpg

What to keep in mind this week

2 of Coins // Balance, balance, balance! You gotta keep things in balance, did I say that enough? Keep a close eye on what you may be doing in excess and what may be drying up, you want to keep a good harmony going this week. Whether it’s your bank account, household chores or just keeping a good stability between work and home - keep yourself in check and find ways to spread the work/money out evenly through your week.

what needs to be done this week

6 of Cups // Love seeing this card show up here! I get a little bit of rekindling old friendships by walking down memory lane and random acts of kindness through this week. It’s like the saying goes “what goes around comes around” and I feel like this applies very well here! Do unto others as you would like done to you, so in other words… be kind, general with your emotional support and enjoy some laughter with others.

The challenge this week

Queen of Swords // The Queen of Swords is very much up in her head and sometimes that can take the best of us. Whether it’s negative thinking, speaking before thinking or just being a bitch… we may need to watch our words this week as it could for sure stir up some heated debates. Take the 2 of Coins as some advice here on how to handle the Queen of Swords challenge and keep everything in check and don’t let yourself lean one way or another - this could even pin point to verbally choosing sides before really thinking things through.

Week Ahead Reading for Feb 11 - 17

Misc Blog Posts.png

Look at what’s back, the weekly reading!! I’m totally feeling my groove once again and happy to be blogging more. I really hope I can keep the momentum, blogging brings me a lot of joy and now that I have my “own” laptop again I’m able to write more… my daughter kind of hoarded my MacBook, a lot! It was also fairly old and had keyboard issues, so I finally got a new laptop and I gave her my old MacBook. So expect more blogging and hopefully more regularly!

The weekly reading is back after a very long break. I will aim to have these up on the blog every Sunday (time varies) so there is time to read the cards before the fresh week begins. This week I’m pulling cards from the Circo Tarot by Marisa de la Peña.

1549558551085.jpg

What to keep in mind this week

6 of Knives // It’s time to start thinking about your own mental wellbeing. Are you in a toxic environment? Are you hanging out with the wrong people? Is something in your life right now causing more stress than it’s worth? Seek some mental clarity, period. Know when to walk away and more importantly, know how to set boundaries. It’s all about moving yourself into a more calmer, positive space. It just may be time to step away and think about yourself this week.

We’re starting Monday with the Moon in Taurus, this could urge us to stay put and resist change, keep this in mind when you are starting to feel a bit stubborn on wanting to change things up even though you know you should. When we get comfortable with something, even if it’s bad for us, change can be hard. Exercise your own free will and put yourself first this week!

what needs to be done this week

Knight of Knives // Forward thinking and full speed ahead! This Knight is saying “I have an idea worth exploring!”. It may not be the greatest idea, but who cares, it’s yours and it’s valid. It’s all about getting things in motion this week and off paper or out of your head. The Knight of Swords is an eager one, they’ve already made their plans and are ready to see what happens, what do you have to lose? I always like to look at the warning that the Knight’s in general bring, they can be fairly reckless and sometimes they can feel too advanced for their own good. Know when to call it quits and know when to keep going.

The challenge this week

3 of Pentacles // If you are working with others this week, this card is for you! While the 3 of Pentacles is normally a card of working well together and collaboration… as a challenge, things may get a bit messy. It’s common for everyone to want to put in their own two cents, which is always great, but it can also turn sour quick quickly. Use the 6 of Swords here for some advice on handling these challenging situations that pop up… if you can, get the F out of there and find a new partner or group to work with. There’s no reason you have to deal with that kind of drama. If you’re are stuck and have to face the music, just do the best you can. Pull your own weight and make sure your idea’s get heard and seen! Understand that you’re doing your best with the cards you were dealt. If you aren’t working with people or groups, this card could easily just point to your social circle or coworkers!

Card of the Week: 8 of Skulls

1543088551732.jpg

Hello, Monday! I just received such a unique deck in the mail last week for review, it’s the Sickly Tarot by F. Raymond Sickly. This deck is truly blowing my mind and I just finished writing that full review of this deck for the Indie Deck Review, I’ll be sharing it soon with you all. In the meantime, you can find this deck straight from the artist himself over on his website here!

I thought it would be great fun to use this deck for the card of the week. It was a mystery as to see which card would show up as this deck has 109-cards with a total of 7 suits. Yes, you read that correct!

eye divider 1.png

8 of Skulls (Cups)

1543090852808.jpg

The 8 of Cups has always been a card of emotional transition for me. We’ve exhausted our efforts and our hearts just can’t handle any more, it’s waving a flag to us in surrender.

I often see this card in more traditional RWS decks as “leaving to search for that missing cup” since it usually illustrates a person leaving behind 8 neatly stacked cups with one missing. What we have or what we’re doing is no longer satisfying us or it never was from the start. It’s time to find something that will fill this space and make us feel better.

The 8 of Cups asks that we listen to our heart and follow it. This is no longer a matter of the mind, it’s about what the heart wants. This can be a spiritual journey or transition, one that invites you to follow your spirit.

So what does this card mean for the week ahead?

It’s time to admit that what you’re trying so hard to make work, isn’t working. If you’re feeling pretty empty, depleted or just a loss for excitement, perhaps it’s a sign that it’s time to move onto something different, fresh and exciting! If you’re feeling the call to change paths right now, listen up and take note! Let your heart be the captain of your ship and pay close attention to it’s subtle pulls in the direction you feel you may need to explore.

Don’t force things this week, rather go with the flow. As an artist, maker, and (wannabe) writer, this card often shows up when I’m trying way too hard to make something work. When we aren’t in love with a project that we’ve been dedicated to, yet we keep at it and keep changing things in hopes it will finally be just right. In the end, we know we should have abandoned this project weeks ago. It’s time to just let it go and admit that it just wasn’t meant to be and that’s ok. You can now pour your heart and soul into something fresh that will be a million times better and more aligned with what you originally had hoped to create!

It’s ok if things don’t work out, you learned something about it and that alone is priceless. Be gentle with yourself this week!

Card of the Week: 7 of Pentacles

1542553029275.jpg

Hello, Monday! I fell off posting the weekly readings for a couple weeks. I just haven’t been feeling it but I’m trying to breathe some life back into my blog. I’ve been pretty busy with writing and working on reviews over at the Indie Deck Review and working on a handful of side projects of my own, my poor blog has been getting pretty neglected.

I started pulling just a card of the week for a little while now but usually just journal it. I wasn’t going to post it on the blog, but then thought why not?! It is my blog after all. I plan to start sharing more personal posts like card perspectives, current favorites, what I’m reading, etc.

The deck I’m pulling from just landed in my hot little hands yesterday, it’s the Indigo Alchemist Tarot by Heather Blumenthal. I’m already madly in love with this deck and will be working on a review here soon!

eye divider 1.png

7 of Pentacles

1542553129078.jpg

The 7 of Pentacles (or coins, what I much prefer to call this suit) has always been a card of patience to me. In your standard RWS this card is usually depicted as a person leaning on a garden tool while gazing over their future plant harvest.

In the Indigo Alchemist Tarot, this card is depicted as an hourglass. This imagery fits so well for me! It’s truly a card of time, waiting and patience. You’ve done the work and now it’s time to wait for results to come in.

I tend to call this card the “gardener card” since my husband and I are both avid gardeners. I feel like most of the time we’re just waiting for the plants and trees to fruit or bud out. The 7 of Coins is often a reminder to be patient and allow things to run its full course before diving in. No one likes to bite into a half green orange or berry. Jessa Crispin said it best in the guidebook for the Spolia Tarot:

But if the pears aren’t ripe yet, then don’t eat the fucking pears.
— Jess Crispin, Spoila Tarot

So what does the 7 of Coins mean for the week ahead?

Patience, young grasshopper, patience. We need to have a little self restraint this week before jumping the gun, so let things run its full course before you even think about touching it or working with it. Like a freshly painted chair, let it dry fully or you’ll be walking around with paint on your ass. We live in a society that is so high in demand for instant gratification. Often times the wait is well worth it. Use this extra time wisely while you wait it out, it’s yours to use! Add more words to your NaNoWriMo novel that you’re chipping away at. Work on that painting you may have on your desk. Declutter and get things ready. Just don’t waste the time given, use it. Keeping busy will only keep you from being so damn fidgety (I’m talking to myself). Time will soon tell you how things worked out, it’s out of your control so get it off your mind until results start rolling in. Then you can reevaluate what to do next!

Weekly Collective: Oct 29 - Nov 4

If you’ve been a dedicated follower of my blog, you already probably know that I like to switch things up a bit here and there, especially with the weekly readings. The weekly readings seem to get changed quite often and I expressed in the past that I’ve been trying to feel things out and find something that is both fun and helpful for my readers! It will probably come as no surprise to you that I mixed it up… yet again! I’ve been wanting to stretch my creative writing muscles and came up with a simple spread for my weekly readings that I really love, it can really be applied to any use and not just once a week! I have also renamed my weekly posts, from the Weekly Reading to the Weekly Collective.

This week I’m using four decks and a 12-sided die, at the end of this post I’m sharing the spread for you to pin, save, or share on your social media! Be sure to tag me on Instagram (@jessrollar) if you use it, I’d love to see!

Decks left to right: Daniloff Tarot, The OK Tarot, Neon Moon Tarot, and the Collective Tarot

THEME: #2

I decided to use my 12-sided die to produce the weekly theme. I work with numerology closely when I read playing card cartomancy and it just felt right to include that here! The theme this week is coming from the number two. This centers around relationships, partners, friendships, and just simply how we work with one another. Things are indeed pretty strained right now and I’m sure you can feel it! This week, apply special and careful attention to how we treat others, what we’re doing for one another and how we can work better together. We want to come together, not pull further apart. This also includes how you treat yourself!

Mind: How do we best communicate this week?

Communication is so very important with how we connect to one another. Our words and how we listen are crucial, and it can really make an impact. The King of Wands asks us to be bold and to not shy away from expressing our enthusiasm. If you have some idea’s to express, get them out and in the open. If you have some opinions to share, speak with confidence and pride. If you don’t believe in what you are trying to say, why should someone else? Try to also remain calm in heated conversations. The King of Wands has it in them to get hot headed, so be sure to keep that in mind before blowing your top. Even when disagreeing with someone, you can still be passionate without being an asshole.

Body: How do we care for ourselves this week?

This week, be gentle with yourself and take care. The 8 of Wands is usually a card of quick and rapid movement, but I don’t feel this is what we need this week, more the opposite in fact. We don’t always have to rush into things and move so damn quickly. Listen to your body and allow it to guide you in the direction you need to be moving in. If something feels right, follow that feeling. Allow the 8 of Wands to be more of a pinpoint guide rather than a rush of energy.

Emotions: How do we handle our emotions this week?

When I see the 2 of Zent (Coins) in this deck it makes me think of adapting to our situations, not pushing against them or trying to juggle our feelings all at once. We should sort out our emotions before jumping the gun with quick reactions with unbalanced thoughts, feel the situations out and understand what others might be going through. This reminds me a lot of the the hot headedness of the King of Wands! Each situation may call for a different approach, so being able to adapt is key. If you are finding it difficult, try simply taking some deep breaths or get some fresh air to help clear your head before approaching a troublesome problem.

Creativity: How do we express our creativity this week?

There is this saying I tell myself when I create or work on projects “do it with love, or not at all” and this plays true here. The Lovers say that if your heart is not on board with what you are doing, it will show. When you are deeply enjoying what you create it should feel really good and fluid, not forced and rigid. This week, align your mind with your heart and allow it to be fully expressed in all that you do.

Card of the Week: Oct 22-28

Monday… we meet again, I see. This weekend was a busy one but for all the good reasons, we celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary and had a kid free Saturday. We are rarely kid free so when the opportunity strikes, we grab it! My husband and I checked out a local metaphysical shop called The Astrology Store, it had the most decks I’ve ever seen a shop carry. Did I come home with a deck? Nope, I’ve been super picky lately, even more than normal so nothing really caught my eye even though they had tons. They also had a killer book collection that contained more books on astrology than I even knew existed, as well as a hefty stash of Crowley books that caught my eye. I will for sure have to return to that store with a list next time… and maybe a very large budget!

Let’s see what energy or theme may be present this week! I’m using on of my favorite and trusted decks, the Collective Tarot, for this weeks pull.

eye divider 1.png
1540238036702.jpg

10 of Bottles

More commonly known as the 10 of Cups, I always love to see this card show up! It’s a much needed reminder to soak in all that is good right now while the moment is full of joy. It’s the little moments of bliss in our day that we often take for granted or just simply miss because we are either too focused on what is going wrong or we are too busy to notice.

I love the feeling of being recognized and loved in this cards imagery. You get the feeling that this is either a family or friendship bond like no other and they are choosing to spend the moment with one another. You are accepted.

What does this mean for us? It means that we should tap into this fuzzy feeling when we see these moments pop up in our week, to truly be present in the emotional pool of those who love us unconditionally.

It’s the little joy after coming home from a long day at work, being happily greeted at the door by your faithful dog companion. It’s the quiet moment after your child finally goes down for a nap and you can get back to that book you’ve been eyeing all day. It’s the happiness you get when grabbing coffee with a close friend whom you haven’t seen in a long while.

tap into the Empress energy this week:

  • When something is going right, stop and take notice.

  • Go out of your way to bring a smile to someone’s face if you can.

  • Spend a night or day at home with your family or friends, enjoy it with them and be fully present.

  • On your altar:

    • Incense: scents that bring you joy

    • Stones: any that make you smile or have been gifted to you

Card of the Week: Oct 15-21

Hello, Monday! After a week of no school for the kiddo, it was October break at her school, I’m so ready for a normal week where I can focus and get some much needed work and writing done. I always miss my routine! It was a nice relaxing week though and it was filled with some mail including three new decks and two new books!

I’m using one of the decks I received on Saturday for this weeks “Card of the Week” pull, it’s the OK Tarot by Adam J. Kurtz. It’s an all pink, minimalistic deck that is absolutely adorable! I was feeling inspired while writing this reading up that I included a little extra below, too.

The Empress

First pull from this deck was for the card of the week and out popped the Empress, perfect, I say! The Empress is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and attraction. The Empress is asking us to really tap into our heart center this week when dealing with the creative process and handling situations. As always, this card also often reminds me of self care. More often than not, we forget to include ourselves in the care process. Am I right?

The Empress urges us to really nourish the projects that are on your plate, to really put more emphasis on them or simply set them free like a bird ready to leave the nest.

Tap into your creativity and allow intuition to guide you in the creative process. If you’ve been sitting on something and it’s ready to go out into the world, use this week to really set it out and give it a great start! The birth of a new idea is always an exciting time so be sure to make it special and don’t shy away from revealing how proud you are, celebrate it!

033-venus.png

tap into the Empress energy this week:

  • Fuel your creativity by focusing on art, writing or any form of self expression

  • Look in the mirror every morning and tell yourself that you are awesome and worthy of love

  • Take yourself out on a date and really enjoy your own company, treat yourself!

  • On your altar:

    • Incense: Rose or Patchouli

    • Stones: Turquoise, Peridot, or even Rose Quartz

Card of the Week: Oct 8-14

I took a break from doing the weekly readings for a bit while I work on some side projects, but they’re back! I feel like I’m always saying that, haha. I’m going to be doing them a little differently and focus on just a single card of the week.

This week I’m pulling from the Morgan’s Tarot. This is a deck that I had a couple years back but traded it and regretted it later on (you know how that goes)… then last week, Everyday Magic shared that the deck has been reprinted and they just listed a second batch of these decks to their shop, the first batch sold out quickly. I ordered one without even blinking and it arrived two days later! I’m so glad to have this deck back in my collection and it’s been fun to read with once again.

Deck: Mystic Mondays

Tomato, Potato, Eggplant

I laughed when I pulled this card, this deck is full of laughs, but behind a silly card has a great message! This card speaks about nourishment and taking care of yourself on a food level. Making practical choices regarding what you put in your mouth and just being more conscious. Am I saying you need to eat healthier? No, this card is asking you to eat what feels good to you, whatever that may be. Only you know what your body needs so be sure to tap into it and listen carefully. If you personally enjoy eating something but you know your body doesn’t enjoy digesting it, use this as a form of self care and pay attention to the signals your body is giving you and perhaps change things up a bit.

I know for me, my body needs water and has been pretty dehydrated lately. I’m seeing it reflect in my skin so this is a great reminder for me to drink up this week…. no, not more coffee, I need to drink way more water!

This week, fuel your body wisely and pay attention to what makes you feel good! Food can be such good medicine!

Weekly Forecast: Sept 17-23

I’m dragging my feet big time and it’s only just Monday, I think my mind just doesn’t want to let go of the weekend, lol! You may notice some slight changes to the website and my shop, I’m working on a few kinks here and there. Trying to do a little revamping, but not too much.

Yes, I missed the weekly forecast last week, sorry everyone! I was just really busy and I couldn’t seem to focus so I decided to not stress out and just let it go for the week and recharge. However, it’s back this week and I’m testing out my Micro Oracle deck!! I’m still editing this deck a little bit more and slowly working on the mini booklet. Hoping to have more news on this deck soon! In the meantime, here is the weekly reading - I’m pairing the Micro Oracle up with the Collective Tarot!

eye divider 1.png
Deck: Mystic Mondays

TLDR: Something is not finished, keep at it and the doors will open!

8 of Keys RX + The Magician + #38

Our theme this week is coming from card #38 of my own Micro Oracle deck. It’s letting us know that we have left something behind and we may not have everything we need just yet. I’m really drawn to that star left in the darker aspects of this card, it makes me think there may still be work left to do and we need to get it all done as to not leaving anything behind. This is a great reminder to double check over any to-do lists and be sure you crossed everything off from the weekend, you might have over looked something important that you thought you did!

The other cards for the week really resonate with the message above! The 8 of Keys RX is giving us a heads up that we might not be able to move forward just yet, at least not very quick. The Magician suggests that we need to keep growing our skill and focus if we want to truly move things forward and flip that 8 of Keys upright! Maybe you think you’re ready but in reality you’re almost there, but not quite yet. This is a great time to keep doing practicing, keep studying, and keep building up your base - Whatever it is that you are focused on, keep at it for a little while longer!

When we do get past this block we see in the 8 of Keys, we will be fully prepared to handle whatever comes our way! We can truly manifest the shit out of what we want with the power to back it up! So stay focused my friends and keep your eye on what you have your heart set on.

Weekly Forecast: Sept 3-9

Hello, September! I'm so ready for fall to get here but in Arizona, it doesn't usually feel like fall until Winter is at our feet. We're still riding out the 100º+ degrees right now, at least the humidity is gone finally... it was a very humid summer for us, which you wouldn't think would be a thing being in the desert but we have a lot of monsoons through the summer.

Ok, enough rambling about the weather, let's get to the cards! I'm using the same decks as last week since they paired up so well! The Collective Tarot and Numinous Tarot. I still need to get my review up on the Numinous Tarot, will do that this week!

eye divider 1.png
Deck: Mystic Mondays
TLDR: Bring our attention to what is holding you down and dragging you through the mud. It's time to make peace so that you can move forward with an open heart!

3 of Bells + The Hermit + 8 of vials

Last week we had a big "self care" notion, this week I'm getting a sense that we need to pull back a bit for some deeper introspection to help clear out anything we may be holding on to. Things that we keep burying every time they pop up. The Hermit is our theme this week! They look tired yet happy, and oh so out of it. We are being asked to really draw ourselves in a bit and for good reason. It's time work on the things we keep pushing back down to deal with later.

The 3 of Bells asks that we pay attention to what is causing us hurt and ill feelings. We can ignore it all we want but it's not going away anytime soon unless we bring our attention to it like the Hermit asks. We are being asked to really take the time to recover from these things rather than cover it up or they will keep hanging on and holding us back.

How do we do this? The 8 of Vials is reminding us that somethings are just not worth it and we need to learn how to release what is really doing us damage, not just cover it up! Acknowledge the pain and release it away mindfully. We can run from our issues all we want but they will always pop up and find us. It's best to take the time to really work with them rather than bury them further and further down.

I love how both the Hermit and the person in the 8 of Vials are facing the 3 of Bells. It's as if they know what they need to do and are ready to shed light on what is holding us back or what we're still struggling to cope with. The person seen leaving the party in the 8 of Vials makes me think it's time to really give the 3 of Bells our full attention. This is not a long term thing, it's a very short passing so why not clear the clouds now and get it finally over with so you can move forward with a clear headspace and an open heart.

Weekly Forecast: Aug 27-Sept 2

I missed the weekly reading last week due to being swamped with some side projects, sorry folx! It's back this week and I'm using a new deck that I will be reviewing in a few days, it's the Numinous Tarot by Noel Arthur Heimpel... I'm in love!

If you don't follow me on social media, I have a new newsletter that is launching on September 1st! It's a mini email that contains a "Card of the Month" reading, tarot tips, updates, and more to come! You can sign up for it here

eye divider 1.png
Deck: Mystic Mondays
Full Moon in Pisces - Today we are looking at a full moon in Pisces! This moon relates to release in your spiritual path, high emotions, and trusting your intuition.

The Lovers + 5 of Tomes + 4 of Feathers

I'm getting a big giant sign that reads "take care of yourself" in flashing neon lettering! Our theme this week is coming from the 4 of Feathers (4 of Swords) and it's all about retreat and rest so that you can tackle your projects more efficiently. It's hard to put out your best work when you are exhausted and mentally clocked out, take care of your headspace and give it some extra care this week.

Be mindful in how you are spending your time and energy, these are indeed resources that are often looked over. The Lovers is popping up as potential energy this week and this says that we need to be there for others in our community, social circles, and families - this includes yourself! Showing up for yourself is a big one, I mean, how can we help and be there for others if we don't help ourselves. Right? It's like feeding others when you have no food at home for yourself, you need to include yourself in this group.

The 5 of Tomes (5 of Coins) asks that we be resourceful and use what we have on hand, or if absolutely needed, seek out to those who can provide for us. There is no shame in asking for help when you need it, this is also why it's good to keep positive bonds with those around us. We can't always take, take, take... we need to give sometimes as well. If you can though, really try to do this yourself if at possible. Use what you have on hand before having to restock, get creative and get crafty even! You may just surprise yourself at how capable you truly are. Whether this comes to meal planning for the week, supplies for a project, or even just carving out the extra time you need... if there's a will, there's always a way!

Overall, I get a strong sense of self care this week and surrounding yourself with those who support and love you. This reflects the Full Moon in Pisces very well I think! Do what you can and the rest will follow.

Weekly Forecast: August 13-19

A new week is at our feet, it's fresh and I can smell the potential! Today is the Feast of Diana, also known as the Festival of Torches. I'm spending some time today to honor Goddess Diana, she is an archetype I've been working very closely with for the past few months. Today I'm using my main working deck, the Spolia Tarot to tap into what energy may be at play this week for us and what we can do with it!

Deck: Mystic Mondays
Mercury RX is finally coming to an at the end of this week on the 19th, hooray! Folx, can you feel the shift already?! I sure can!

FIRE + ACE of Coins

We're playing with fire this week and that resonates with me big time! Fire to me speaks of our ambition, our drive, and our creativity. I've certainly been feeling extra creative, finally. We are asked to control this fire and put it to use!

So how do we work with fire this week? If you're not careful, you can get easily burned out so just keep that in mind! The Ace of Coins urges us to tap into this potential flame and see where it sparks up or illuminates in our life. I feel like the Ace of Coins is the torch handle to our flame, we control where we want it to go. All I know is that since we're working with an Ace card, there's some potential in the cracks of our day to day lives. If something hot lands in our lap, like an opportunity to grow or bring in more money, seize it and use it! Keep fueling this seed with all you have, you want to really put a lot of energy into whatever it is if you want to bring it to fruition. So whether you are starting fresh with a new project, starting a new job, or even just making products for your online shop... give it all you got! Keep that fire in you moving and keep it hot, hot, hot!

Weekly Reading: August 6-12

Last week I took a small break from the weekly readings. I was pretty distracted and by the time I realized I forgot to post it, we were already well into Wednesday, oop's! It's back this week though and I'm trying out a new deck that I just got yesterday, it's the Dark Days Tarot by Wren McMurdo. I received this deck in a trade along with one other deck, the adorable Marshmallow Marseille. I plan to do a deck review of Dark Days Tarot and the other deck soon!

Deck: Mystic Mondays
On the 11th we have a New Moon in Leo. I always get excited when the moon goes dark, it's one of my favorite phases to work with.

Ace of Swords

Your mind sees the potential before the words can even escape your lips. If you're feeling this sudden flash of inspiration, grab it by the roots and take hold! It may help to collect all your idea's and thoughts into one big pile so that you can put things in better order. Anything that makes it easier to understand, especially with Mercury in RX, things have the tendency to get a bit muddy around this time. This also gives you a chance to see what needs more attention or what may be in a more mature state of mind.

I love how on this card there's a hand gathering all the layers of this mountain and forming it into a sword handle. The mountain layers remind me of layers of our subconscious, ones that need to be consciously sorted and put into an order than makes more sense. You're in control with what you do, it's your sword to use.

Wheel of Fortune

When the wheel is spinning, it's time to ask yourself, "do I feel lucky"? Are you ready to take a chance and see what happens? Or, are you going to play it safe and wait this cycle out? The Wheel of Fortune is asking you to take a leap this week and strike while the iron's hot! To me, this card is all about deciding what cycle you thrive in best so that your chances are higher and you end up on top... because that's obviously the most favored outcome, right? When working with fresh inspiration and the sharp clarity from the Ace of Swords, this may be your time to really send some of these idea's you have out into the world and test the waters to see what could possibly happen. It's like throwing the dice and trusting that the numbers are in your favor, sometime you win big... sometimes you lose it all. It really comes down to this, is it worth the opportunity?

With the New Moon coming up later this week, it may be wise to hold off on anything fresh until then! After all, we're working with Ace energy and what better phase to work with than the New Moon!

Weekly Reading: July 23-29

This month is moving quick, I can't believe we're almost into August... which means we're closer to Halloween, my favorite time of the year. This week we have a Full Moon in Aquarius popping up later this week, I'll be posting some mini Tarotscopes for this moon on Thursday so keep a watch for those!

This week I'm using a new deck, Carnival at the End of the World (let's just call this the Carnival tarot from here on out, haha) and if you missed it, I posted a review of this deck here.

I'm short on time today so I'm pulling a quick two-card "to do and not to do" this week, which I find quick effective and frankly I'm not sure why I don't use this little spread more often for weekly guidance! It gets right to the gist of things.

Deck: Mystic Mondays

To do - 4 OF COINS

Usually when I see the 4 of Coins show up it tells me that you or someone is being a little too tight, a little too greedy, and a little too attached... however this week, I think that might be the right thing to do! I know for myself, payday isn't until next week so being a bit frugal with my spending is key if I want to make it through till then, perhaps you're in the same boat. Let's try to be a little more careful with our spending and keep a sense of security this week. We don't need to be a greedy jerk about it, just be a little more wise with how and where you spend it. The goal this week is to keep you standing on a firm foundation!

Not to do - KING OF WANDS

The King of Wands this week is urging us to hold back a bit (much like the 4 of Coins) and reserve your energy. I often relate the King of Wands to Dr.  Gregory House on the tv show House. At his best, he's a leader who can figure things out at the last minute, he's driven with pure passion and obsession. At his worst, he's impulsive and blows his lid very easily! Take this into perspective this week to simply not lose your head and try to refrain from jumping right in and taking over, let someone else play commander this week.  Sometimes our ego can fill our heads so much that we overlook others and the situations we are in, next thing we know we're on a boat with no paddle and stuck in hellish waters.


I've been working closely with the Septarian stone lately when it comes to my tarot studies and writing. It's a fantastic stone to work with for communication, public speaking, confidence, and getting the right words out. I find it to be a perfect stone for tarot readers or those who blog, ahem.

Weekly Reading: July 16-22

Hello Monday?! Just like last week, I'm using the Spolia Tarot for the weekly reading! I'm switching things up this week for the reading, are you surprised? I'm using a method that I haven't used in a while, but love! My friend asked about it this morning and it inspired me to use it for the weekly reading. It's perfect for daily, weekly, or even monthly as well... or really anytime! I'll explain it a bit below!

eye divider 1.png
Deck: Mystic Mondays

The Hierophant + Ace of Cups + Page of Coins

First off, I don't want to take credit for this method since I learned it a long time ago but have since forgotten where or who I learned it from. It's a really fun way to read the cards!

Starting with the whole deck, you can either separate out the Majors, Minors, and Courts and pull directly from those OR do a simple method of pulling from 3 shuffled stacks, this cuts out the work of separating your deck.

The left stack is for your Major Arcana pull, the middle stack is for the Minor Arcana pull, and the right stack is for the Court card pull. You simply pull a card until you get to the first Major, Minor, and Court.

Example: On the left stack, I kept pulling a card until I get to the first Major card. Then did that again with the middle stack to get to the Minor Arcana card, and the last stack to get the Court card. Hope that makes sense!

Major Arcana - is read as the theme of the week
Minor Arcana - is the action to take
Court - card is the attitude you need to adapt to


The theme this week is coming from The Hierophant and it's all about learning and sticking with the rules, as much as they may suck. Sometimes staying in the lane is what we need, it keeps us focus on what the end result is that we want. While we may not agree or like how something is said or taught, we can customize this later on once we learn it. Right now, it's about soaking up the information!

The Ace of Cups reminds me a lot of our mind this week, we are filling it with awareness and information that we gather from our teachers, our friends, and our family members. Anyone can be a teacher if they have information to share and someone willing to learn. You can gain a lot from others, especially when you just simply listen! It may be something you have heard many times before but perhaps it's the way they explain it that makes it resonate with you better. This is also a good reminder to find teachers that resonate with you, not all teachers are for everyone and that's ok. Fill your cup this week with things that can help you in your life and current path!

The Page of Coins is a perfect mindset to tap into when working with the Hierophant! I always see the Page of Coins as a student, eager to learn and anxious to make progress towards their goals. They are willing to do the work and expand their knowledge. Be the Page of Coins this week when you are wanting to attain more information, learn something new, or work on fine tuning a skill. Be open to everything that can be used as a learning tool with trying new things and don't be put off if something doesn't work out how you wanted - there is a lesson to be learned when we make mistakes! One is always to not do it again so figure out what went wrong and avoid doing that the second time around.

Weekly Reading: July 9-15

Happy, Monday! This weekend went fast.... at least for me! I didn't do a whole lot outside of the house since it was way too hot. I think we peaked at 115º yesterday but today it's supposed to be a bit "cooler" at around 110º.... we are also currently in monsoon season finally, so while Arizona is usually a "dry heat" it's hot and humid right now. 

FYI: My response to the comment "but it's a dry heat" that us Arizona folx hear all the time is that your oven is also a dry heat. Unless you enjoy sticking your head in the oven for shits and giggles, it's still damn hot, haha!

Ok, a new week means new possibilities! I'm using the Spolia Tarot once again, I can't get enough of this deck. Both the booklet and cards are just.... amazing! If you missed it, I shared a review of this deck that can be read here.

Deck: Mystic Mondays

6 of Wands + 10 of Swords

Energy from the 6 of Wands tells us that no matter what you face this week, be vigilant! Set yourself up for success and don't shy away from being praised, even if it's just for helping someone out at office at the printer. Take that compliment and run with it! Use it as some extra fuel to keep you going and doing a good job! Who doesn't likes a good pat on the back from time to time, am I right? Perhaps you may be getting some appreciation for work done around the house... you know, the whole "wow, the house looks great" even though it's been clean for a few days, just take it and smile. When we know we are doing well, it helps us to keep up the momentum and do better if not for others, at least yourself. I know that when I'm told that a blog post I wrote was very helpful or that a reading I gave was empowering for them, it makes me want to keep doing what I do. Especially when you had doubt before, it lets you know that you're on the right path and that you can indeed do hard things - even if they aren't all that hard, you know you are making a difference in either your life or others. 

Advice from the 10 of Swords... Ouch! This may sting a bit but it's a great wake up call! While no one likes to see the 10 of Swords pop up in a reading, I do like to see it show up for advice - I tend to see it as a warning more than anything, and who doesn't like a good warning?! Since we're working with the energy of the 6 of Swords and being praised here and there, don't let that be an invitation to go all out and overboard! HINT: It's not going to play out well. Often times when we keep getting the "good job, buddy" we tend to let it go to our head more and more, then we think we are invisible and can "probably handle this too"... jury says, we can still see you and you need to stay in your lane! This is just setting you up for a hard landing, so stay grounded and be practical in your thinking and logic. Don't overdo it just because you think you're untouchable, you may have done well in other things but it's not a ticket of freedom to do whatever the hell you want just because you think nothing could go wrong.

If you do find yourself in the position of the 10 of Swords this week and things do indeed backfire, just dust yourself off. It's ok, at least take this as a learning experience to not do it again. Right?

Weekly Reading: July 2 - 8

Hello, Monday! A little late in the day, but hey, the weekly reading is up and ready to help steer your week... even though Monday is nearing an end! I hope to have this up on Sundays rather than Monday from here on out, but don't hold your breath on that, haha!

While on Patreon, I got in the habit of pulling a 2-card Energy and Advice reading for the week ahead, so I'm going to continue doing just that! This week I'm using a brand new deck that arrived on Saturday, the Spolia Tarot!

eye divider 1.png
Deck: Mystic Mondays

Virgo + Knight of Swords

The fun thing about the Spolia Tarot is that it has 16 extra cards - 12 of those are for each sign of the zodiac and the other 4 are elements. I'm mentioning this since one of the cards drawn for the week is one of those extra cards, Virgo!

Virgo tells us that no matter how hard we try, nothing will every be perfect or exactly what we want it to be. It's setting up for expectations that just won't ever meet our own standards, but it is rewarding to try and know that we have given it our best. I know perfectionism all too well, it's exhausting to say the least! With a very strict perfectionist mindset we start to hold ourselves back in ways that we may not realize. It could be felt when you pour your heart out into a writing project only to feel that your point is muddled.... so you either delete it or leave it in your drafts, never seeing the light of day. It can be repainting a piece of art over and over again because your line work isn't up to your perfected standards. Perfectionism can really be found in day to day tasks if you really reflect on it. We need to allow ourselves to have mistakes and be ok with a perfectly imperfect selves.

The Knight of Swords comes in like a wrecking ball to tell you to just get what you want out! Speak your mind even if you don't have all the words. Write that blog post even if it's filled with grammar mistakes and run-on sentences. Don't repaint that painting, just add to it and let the words flow out with your brush. We need to stand up and get our point across no matter if it's sloppy or if it's incomplete. The Knight of Swords will do what they want and take action, they don't wait around for someone to give them orders... even though sometimes they should, they never do.

This week, take initiative and don't worry so much on getting it just right. Learn from your mistakes rather than paint over them. Dive in head first and focus on what point you want to make, then get it out there into the world!

Weekly Reading: May 14 - May 20

Hello, Monday... we meet again. Each week I'm getting more and more anxious for the kiddo to be out of school. The homework, daily drop off's and pick up's, lunch packing, crazy mornings of "getting the kiddo ready for school" wears thin around this time of year. It's right around the corner, only 8 more school days left! Then... after a few weeks of no school, you'll start to hear me complain that I wish school was starting soon... The cycle never gets old, haha!

Decided to simply things this week with a 2-card draw for the new week! Using my absolutely favorite deck, the Oliver Hibert Tarot.

eye divider 1.png
Deck: Mystic Mondays

Page of Coins + The Empress

The energy of the week is fresh with curiosity and examination coming from the Page of Coins. This is a curious energy and I love it! The Page of Coins is one of my favorite court cards, it reminds me a lot of myself. I'm always eager to learn, try new things, and I tend to really pour myself into something... even though I'm horrible at keeping momentum and will often change my interest to something different after only a day. This is what I'm getting from the Page of Coins, momentum. In order to keep this fresh energy flowing you need to nurture the shit out of it - this is where the Empress comes in. The Empress says to take whatever it is we have our minds set on and embrace it under your wing. Really give it a good chance before calling it quits.

It can be really tempting to dive right in but try not to make any first moves until you really look at everything in a full spectrum. The Empress is all about natural cycles and allowing things to come into fruition as they naturally will, so trust that all the work you put in this week will only help you down the road and it will happen when it happens. Think of this as the building blocks to your success. You wouldn't start building a house without a plan, right? Okay... some may and some have, but that's not the point I'm trying to make! Things take time, allow just that, time.

I will say that my Marseille brain wants to note that someone or something may be trying to get your attention and if you're not interested... don't force it. Don't fall trap into all the glitter and gold... chances are, it's just spray paint.

Weekly Reading: May 7 - May 13

Hello, Monday! You might have noticed the new website layout! I started working on a new layout a little while ago and finally decided to switch it over. You may also have noticed I took a little time away from the blog, I needed a little self care and took this time to step back and get a bigger picture of where I want my blog and tarot practice to go.

My tarot practice has been spiraling in a new direction with my focus on how I use the cards. Lately, I've been using tarot as a major tool in my body positivity journey and positive mental attitude (PMA). I have also discovered that I love to read for self empowerment with the main focus of body positivity and mental health. I'm excited to see my tarot practice evolve and shift! 

I'm back with the weekly reading and I'm using the Zombie Tarot that just arrived in the mail from a swap. I'll be sharing a review of this deck sometime this week!

Deck: Mystic Mondays

Situation:

Knight of Hazards

This week is asking you to stay dedicated in everything you choose to do. Whatever we have on our plate we should try to follow through to the end rather than just give up and throw in the towel. Giving up is the easy route and the Knight of Hazards is in no way one to take the road less traveled. They are up for the challenge and know the work ahead is tiring but it is rewarding! If you find yourself hitting a wall, take a break, grab some coffee, or whatever it is you need to do in order to get going again. Walls do not always mean "it's over"... you just need to be cleaver with how you get around them.

Action to take:

The Hanged Man

When I pulled cards for the week ahead, I set the intention to focus on the area of positive mental attitude (PMA). Lately, PMA has become a regular intention in my tarot practice and tarot has been helping me massively! The actions to take and focus on this week come from The Hanged Man. These include embracing new perspectives and not being afraid to shake things up. If something isn't working for you, find ways you can change it up. Sometimes taking some small sacrifices in order to get the peace we seek is worth it as well.

Get out of your normal, everyday mindset and try to see things in new light. We often get so stuck in a specific mindset and get comfortable, it's hard to break these mental habits. These habits can include worrying about the unknown or what is out of your control, or just getting frustrated over the smallest of things. Try to look at any frustrating situation in a more positive or neutral light... I know everything can't be rainbows and kittens all the time. I just mean to be a little more kind to yourself rather than flipping out and focusing on the negatives of a situation. Focusing on the negative will only inhibit you from seeing the positives, and that's not fun for anyone.

Action NOT to take:

7 of Hazards

Things take time and the best things are well worth the wait. Try not to give up too quickly or rush things, you'll only be cutting yourself short and remember, mistakes happen easily when we push things that don't want to be pushed. This card ties in so well with the Knight of Hazards! They're in it until the end regardless of the work to be done, they find the stamina to keep on going. Patience can run thin so be well aware of where your frustration is coming from - take breaks if you need them, ask questions if you have them, and keep your focus on the end goal!

Weekly Reading: April 30 - May 6

Hello, Monday! I haven't been sharing any weekly readings lately, I guess I can't hide the fact that I've been in a  tarot slump lately. I had a new deck arrive yesterday that didn't live up to its expectations for me. It was the Ethereal Visions Tarot. Don't get me wrong, the deck and artwork is gorgeous but but I just didn't connect with it at all so I ended up trading it out for another deck within hours of receiving it in the mail. I do have, yet another, deck coming tomorrow from a trade - the Fountain Tarot. Now, this is literally the 3rd time since I've owned this deck and it's not leaving my hands this time!

Ok, let's check out the cards this week! I'm switching things up this week to try a 3-card spread to check the energies possibly at play. The deck I'm using, yet again, is the Oliver Hibert Tarot (mixed with the Secret Arcana Oracle).

eye divider 1.png
Deck: Mystic Mondays

Situation:

The Spider

Love this card! The Spider card to me is more specific to the webs we lay, what we wish to lure in and "trap". This card pairs well with 6 of Wands where we want to bring in the recognition that we truly deserve. I do believe we attract what we put out there - if you are constantly cranky and in a bad mood, you will attract things and situations that will just feed into that mood. So this is all about weaving the web in ways that will attract what you want!

Action to take:

6 of Wands

The 6 of Wands to me is all about celebrating accomplishments, no matter how small or big. It's about getting recognition for your efforts and basking in the satisfaction and glory. Some people may take notice this week and if they congratulate you in any way, accept it and say thank you! You deserve it! If you are hoping to get noticed but don't, give yourself a high five - you know you deserve it!

Action NOT to take:

The Lovers

Try hard not to bicker with your partner or close friend this week. This isn't the week to cause a split in between things, just agree to disagree. Causing or allowing a divide in your relationship or partnership will do more harm than good. This could also indicate that this week may not be great for close relationships, ones that we choose to be in. If you're wanting to get closer with someone, perhaps take a step back and watch what they decide to do first before making a move.
