Strange Lands Oracle

Weekly Reading: Mar 19 - 25

Happy Monday! Every Monday I'm sharing a reading for the week to see what energy is at play and how we can work with it, along with some extra added guidance at the end of the post. I hope you enjoy these weekly readings as much as I do! This week I'm pulling a cards from the Mystic Mondays Tarot and Visions: Crystal Oracle. Let's see what is brewing this week!

Deck: Mystic Mondays

The 9 of Wands suggests that we may be on the protective side of things this week, this also goes for building up new boundaries or maintaining old ones. This will take a lot of energy from you so be sure to give yourself a break or two. You just can't expect to be "on" 24/7 and expect not to get tired. This card reminds us that it's ok to step away but be sure to lock up first. Don't let your down guard if you feel you're being threatened or let someone in that isn't welcome, push back if you need to but don't let things get out of hand. Just stand your ground and that is all that needs to be done.

After a long week, you can expect the 4 of Cups to show up and let you know that it's ok to sit this one out and take time for yourself. Use some "me time" to connect with your own emotional wellbeing. Like I mentioned earlier, if your working hard all week you'll most likely be energetically and emotional run dry. It's time to recharge! People or things may reach out to get your attention but don't worry about that right now, just focus on yourself, even if you feel you're being selfish, it's ok! These things or people can wait and will be there when you're ready, if not, onward and upward my friend.

This week is all about pushing forward and then taking a step back to contemplate your hard efforts and work. Use some time to re-examine what didn't work or what you feel you're putting too much effort into that isn't worth your energy. If you're feeling like you're stuck in the same routine, don't shy away from shaking things up! You want to be doing things that feed your soul, not slow you down or have you checking the clock every 10 minutes.

Extra Guidance

Ok, you can't do it all and you know it! You may have tried to do it all and even wanted to do it all, but let's face it, you just can't. There needs to be a balance of some kind going on here. Whether it's between your work and home life, hobbies and school life, or any mix in between - you need to sort things out and lighten up your load.

If you must do it all, then at least try to find some organization so that you can tackle each thing little by little without stressing out... or dropping all those tea cups and saucers you're balancing on your head. What? Not everyone walks around with dishes stacked on their head?! Fair. But, just like doing dishes, you load the washer one dish at a time... this is how you should tackle on your every growing to-do list, one thing at a time.

Whatever you decide to do this week, just be mindful and keep things in balance and everything else will fall into place!

New Moon in Pisces Oracle Reading

Hello, New Moon in Pisces! Can you feel this watery moon right now?! It's hitting me hard and I'm feeling all the feels. I'm sensing this moon is really clearing us out emotionally, it's allowing us to get it all out on the table and in the open for us to really see. Anytime emotions run high I turn to art and get that shit on paper! My go-to art therapy is collage, though I used to paint and draw often, collage is what really helps me express myself best and get the magic flowing. This is a perfect time to set intentions around intuition, creativity, and expressing your true feelings!

I pulled an oracle card using the Strange Lands Oracle for our moon message! I hope this mini reading resonates with you and helps you through this New Moon.

Uncertain

I know "uncertain" very well! I'm as Gemini as you can get, indecision runs in my cosmic DNA. I'm always second-guessing myself and wondering "what if I made the wrong choice"...

The card Uncertain asks us to take the time to make sense of things and really ask ourselves why we struggle in this area so much. It's about digging to the roots and pulling them out into the open so that we can really examine what's going on here. With the New Moon in Pisces, this card resonates well. A mix of high emotions + uncertainty.... oh, dear! Emotional uncertainty will often leave you on the floor crying with a bottle of wine, but it doesn't have to be!

This is a great reminder to trust in your intuition and act, don't second-guess yourself for making the choice you did. There's a reason you made this choice, so trust that it was the right one at that time.

This reminds me lot of tarot! How many times have you pulled a card and end up wondering if you pulled the "right" one? You start to wonder if you truly meant to pull that card or if it was a mistake because you weren't focused enough... GUILTY! I've learned that I just have to trust that the card drawn was meant to be and whether or not I ignore the message, the message will show up in other cards. Trust is everything! I even second-guessed myself when I pulled this card that I'm talking about now, hah! After diving deeper into this card it proved to be exactly what I needed to hear and write about!

Monthly Reading: March 2018 (Full Moon Edition)

A new month has landed and it's also a Full Moon in Virgo, what a great way to kickstart a new month! I've been so looking forward to March, for some reason I really wanted to get out of February. It wasn't a bad month by far but rather a very slow one for me. I have some projects in the works for Radical She Tarot that I'm excited to work on and share soon, hopefully sometime this month! I'll also be posting a few deck reviews!

Let's take a quick peek at the theme for March and get an idea of what energy is at play, I'm sharing an oracle reading for the Full Moon in Virgo in this post! Decks used are the golden Thread Tarot and Strange Lands Oracle.

This month we're working with the energy of the 4 OF CUPS... I know, it's not super exciting but it is a great reminder that we all could use! The 4 of Cups tells us that we need to snap out of it and open our eyes to what's being presented. Chances are there's something going on in your life that's demanding your attention and you've been either pushing it aside, avoiding it all together, or not paying enough attention to even notice. I know it can be hard to focus on something when your heart is clearly not on board, so you have some choices to make this month. One option is you can "eat the toad" and get it over with so that you can breath a little easier, thats always a nice feeling for sure! Whether it's a project that needs tending to, a deadline creeping up, or even a boring chore like doing the dishes... just get it done! Now, if you know deep down that what you're avoiding is truly not in your best interest, don't be afraid to just let it go. There's no need to drag whatever it is through the mud, just release and move on!

The 4 of Cups also urges us to pay closer attention to what may be available to you this month. If you're not pay attention, you may be missing a key element being handed to you so be alert and be ready to act. You'll be kicking yourself so hard later on if you realized that you missed a big opportunity that was literally hanging in front of your face. I've been there, it's not fun! Listen to your gut, if something feels worth exploring... go for it! You never know, it could be just what you've been looking or waiting for, but you would have missed it if you weren't paying attention!

Full Moon in Virgo

Songbird

This card really reflects the 4 of Cups so well and I feel it's a strong continuation of the reading above. This card talks about fear and why we may be hiding from it. Fear can do a lot to someone, it can hold you back from doing some amazing things. I have my fair share with the fear game and let me tell you, it makes you feel like you're trapped in a cage... a cage that you put yourself in! Only you hold the key to the cage of fear, so use it and unlock this cage to set yourself free! If you've been wanting to try something new, do it. If you want to start a new project, start now. If you're unsure if you'll like something, try it anyways and see... don't let fear tell you that you can't or shouldn't! Use the Full Moon energy to set intentions that you will not allow fear to dictate how you live. Starting right now, stop letting fear control you or keep you from doing what you want.

What are you afraid of and why? What's the worst that can happen? These are important questions to ask yourself when fear steps up to the plate. Usually fear is caused by the thoughts of failing, and you know what? So what if you fail, it's not the end of the world. At least you can say that you tried!

Remember: Failure = learning = GROWTH!
