Tarot Forecast – 07.09-07.14.2018

Hello my loves! I feel like all I post these days are tarot forecasts… I swear I am working on other content and getting myself reorganized. I am also working on getting some other contributors on here to showcase a wider range of practice and perspective!
But, that takes time and effort and to be honest, June was not kind to me. I feel like I am still recovering and my 9-5 is sucking the life out of me, haha.
I will survive! Just another week or two and things will get back to normal and I can feel more on top of my passions and actually commit more energy to them.
Which! If you have been following any astrology readings for the week (Jess from BehatiLife is always my favorite), this week is full of awesome transits. I didn’t even have a chance to watch some of these astroforecasts until this afternoon and it was so affirming to the energy I pulled from the cards and how I was feeling today.
So, what the heck is going on.

1. What energy do we need to channel this week? The Priest
We must renew our dedication and committment to practice. The time and attention we place in our sacred space and practice allows us to remain grounded. These habits will sustain us through moments in which we may question ourselves and our path.
2. What must we look out for this week? Reversed High Priestess
We will likely come across something this week that causes us to question our inner voice. We will be experiencing a huge expansion of things as Jupiter goes direct, so as everything rushes to us, we may be worried about pursing the “right” thing. I know I have already faced new options and opportunities this week and they caused me a slight twinge of imbalance. Refocusing on my practice, my values, and what I want my life too look like gives me the assistance I need to select the “proper” path.
3. How can we overcome challenges? The Ace of Cups
Maintaining an outlook of positivity and possibility will help you move through these weaker moments. You may feel overwhelmed by everything coming at you. But because we are focusing on intentional, meaningful practice, we can trust that our soul purpose will present itself.

While we all need more fun in our life, too much can cause us too lose focus on our higher goals. It is easy to get swept up in the moment and opportunity without looking at how this impacts our overall goals. Our responsibilities still need to be addressed, so working on finding the balance that works for you should go hand in hand with developing your practice.
Are you feeling like any new doors have opened for you this week? Are you excited about them or are you finding yourself off center and overwhelmed?

May 2018 Full Moon in Sagittarius

I won’t lie. I was a little worried about the emotional rollercoaster this full moon was going to have me riding this week. But, after looking into the moon and all the work I did on the new moon. I’m hoping this moon will be kind to you as well!
This full moon in Sagittarius calls us to look at our life from a 10’000 foot view. If you read my tarot forecast for the week, you would know that our Super Secret Bottom Card for this week was the Hermit.
Getting clarity on our personal values, principles, morals and overall lifestyle (as it is presently and how we want it to look) is key this week.
After the questions I posed in our new moon ritual, I feel like we have kind of already done most of that work! Now, it our chance to pause and recognize what we have fully committed to, what is feasible in our lives at the moment, and what is just not currently possible to integrate into our lives.
This full moon ritual is going to be pretty relaxed. While Sagittarius wants to try all of the things and be adventurous – this evening can be a moment of rest. You can do and try all you want in the morning.
***
What you’ll need:
One white candle
Your journal/grimoire/BOS
Yep. you read that. Just one white candle and whatever it is you do your work in. Rituals can be incredibly simple and still pack a punch.
Get into your sacred space. Get comfortable and take the time to do a grounding meditation or your preferred practice.
Light the white candle and focus on the things listed above:
What have you fully committed to bringing into your life this cycle?
Has it been working? Why or why not?
If why not, is it something that you just cannot feasibly commit to right now?
Remember – you don’t need to do all of the things all at the same time. Maybe there are changes you want to bring into your life that require a little more preparation, other foundational habits, or just more of you to focus on it.
Once you get a clear idea of what is and isn’t working for you – focus on releasing yourself of any inner obligation or expectation to remain held to what is not working.
Push all of that energy and emotional tie into the candle. Let yourself fill with warmth from head to foot as you release it. When you feel ready, fully release it into the universe by blowing out the candle.
Gently close your space however you see fit.
***
I hope that by releasing the habits and things that just are not working you find yourself opened to fully committing to what is working for you! Perhaps this will give you some more time and energy to expand and try something new.
As always, I love hearing from you! Especially when using these workings – I’d love to know if they work for you!
All my love!

New Moon in Taurus Ritual

I feel as if I’ve been walking through a gray cloud of fog and mist these last few weeks. Even with Aries pushing me along to create and do, it’s as if I’ve only been half awake through that process. This week has been the first in a long time where I have awoken with a clear mind and at ease spirit.
I felt called to share with you my ritual for this cycle. At the end, I felt as if I could truly stand tall, claim my space, and move forward.
Working with Taurus was quite interesting. Now I know I’m about a day late or so in sharing this, but I had no real plan for my ritual work this week. It just… happened! I have been wanting to do more natal chart work and this seemed to beckon me in as the perfect opportunity to start. Taurus is my Rising sign and having been struggling with my anxiety the last few weeks, working on my Self was an absolute must.
What you’ll need:
Journal/notebook & pen/pencil
4 candles*

Purple – inner healing and personal power

White – release, calming, grounding

Green – prosperity

Red – manifest

*if you have pre-designated candles in other colors, please feel free to use those. We all connect with colors differently.

Dried bay leaves
Cauldron or fire-safe bowl
***
Let’s begin.
Set your Sacred space however you see fit. Some may feel called to cast a circle, call in the elements or any spirits or deities. This is entirely up to you and how you will feel ready to work.
Taurus rules “I Have”. We must address our relationships, our need for things, our health, everything that we have in this physical world and how it impacts us.
In your journal, you’ll work on two sets of questions. Take as much time as you need. As always, it is important that we be honest with ourselves. Do not edit yourself, do not worry for another’s feelings. Let it all flow out of you onto the page.

1. What relationship(s) always leave me feeling drained?

2. What commitments do I have that I view only as obligation and have no emotional investment in?

3. What habits do I keep that undermine my ability to commit to the lifestyle I want?

4. What thoughts do I have about myself that are toxic? [What do you say about yourself that you would never say to a loved one?

When you feel ready, take a few small pieces of paper and write down some overall themes you came across in your writing.
Now that we’ve addressed the less positive side of “I Have”, we’ll take a look into its counterpart.

1. What relationships do I truly value? How can I foster a deeper connection with these individuals?

2. Is it possible to remove myself from commitments I have no real passion for? If not, is there any part of this obligation that you enjoy? No moment is too small. How can I encourage more of the moments I enjoy?

3. What always brings me joy? How can I incorporate that more into my lifestyle?

4. What do I value and love most about myself?

When you feel ready, write down some of the overall themes you came across in this second section on the bay leaves.
Place the four candles in a circle around your cauldron.

White, place in the direction of West..

Purple, place in the direction of North.

Red, place in the direction of East.

Green, place in the direction of South.

Light the White and Purple Candle. Say the following 3 times while burning your small paper in the cauldron.
Accepting of Self, I am embracing who I Am and my Path fully. I release myself from all preconceived expectations and unhealthy relationships and habits.
Light the Red and Green candles. Say the following 3 times while burning your bay leaves.
I am Capable. I am Worthy of Love and Affection from my Self and others. I call in abundance to my loved ones and my Self to care for all our needs.
Rest for a few moments. Enjoy the moment and allow yourself to breathe. You could take this time to meditate on any words that stuck out to you.
By my breath, I release my intentions for inner healing and acceptance into divine space.
Blow out your candles and rest. Complete the day/evening however feels best for you to care for yourself. I took a nice warm shower and read before bed.
***
Please let me know how you felt called to work with the new moon this cycle. I am feeling so inspired and grounded. I cannot wait to share with you what is to come – my alignment hasn’t yet felt this strong.
