Weekly Tarot Story – Tuesday

Good morning, what a beautiful day for a new beginning. With the Dark Moon 0% today and tomorrow it is time to begin again. In keeping communication as the the theme of the week our card, Balsamic Moon, is pretty spot on. It tells us this is a new beginning for healing and is an important step.

When trying to move forward having wounds from the past opening, fears reigniting, pain, shame, guilt and a host of other issues just doesn’t help us get anywhere. It also saps joy and happiness from our lives. We don’t need or want that.

Let’s take advantage of this new cycle and forgive ourselves for the times we let ourselves down. Forgive and ask forgiveness of others for hurt and pain caused whether accidentally or on purpose. Remember forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting and it doesn’t mean letting someone back into our life. It just means we’re cutting the cords and letting go because we don’t need the pain anymore. It is no longer a part of who we are or where we’re going.

Have a beautiful day!

Weekly Tarot Story – Monday

Good morning how is everybody on this lovely Monday? Awesome, Fantastic, Amazing. How about Unstoppable? The card for the collective is the North Node. This is a card that lights a fire and asks you to step out of your comfort zone because its time to get going.

The problem is moving outside the boundaries of what we know and are comfortable with can be a big scary thing. There are many “What Ifs” involved. What if I fail? What if I”m not good enough? What if people laugh at me? Sometimes the thought of success is even scarier because our expectations and those of others to maintain or exceed that success is introduced to the mix.

It’s important to remember nothing thrives in a comfort zone. Nothing grows, nothing changes, it is days, weeks and years of sameness. Life is about risk. Some are big and others aren’t but to dream and do nothing gives you a life full of wondering what might of happened if we tried. Of course the possibility of failure exists just don’t give up. We learned what didn’t work and that is a success in itself.

So pulling from yesterday; communicate your desire to step out and take a chance on yourself. Face the fears down and try. Do the things that scares you. Be courageous and follow your heart.

Have a wonderful day!
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

Weekly Tarot Story – Sunday

Good morning everyone welcome to another Weekly Tarot Story. I am using Yasmin Bolands Moonology Oracle for a couple different reasons. First I thought it would be appropriate to use since we have the Dark Moon this week, gotta love that synchronicity, and second because its been a while since I used this beautiful deck. The gorgeous illustration was done by Nyx Rowan. I find this deck to be very intuitive and lovingly honest. It’s slightly larger than I prefer but still has a pretty good hand and shuffles well.

The card beginning our Tarot Story is the New Moon in Gemini telling us there is a good chance our week will focus on communication. Open and honest communication requires speaking from the heart. If we can’t bring ourselves to be honest about our thoughts, needs and feelings, misunderstandings will happen. Don’t be all up in our head when we need to be willing to be more open.

Have a beautiful day!
Blessed be ❤ Sharon

Weekly Tarot Story – Saturday

Hey everyone let’s take a collective deep breath, we have reached the final day of our Tarot Story. The card for the collective is the Ace of Cups reversed. Before thinking the worst this is a good thing in the long run.

When reversed the Ace of Cups can be letting us know there may be some deception where we are being lied to or we are lying to ourselves. There could be buried emotions that need attention or we could be disconnected from our creativity and intuition.

What our card is telling us is we might benefit from taking some me time. A self love day or even a few hours can do us a world of good. Get away if possible, turn off the phone and spend time doing something you love and contemplating the next best move based on what we want for our lives.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Friday

Hello Today’s card could be a problem, we have the Eight of Swords. We could be dealing with fear, clarity or perspective issues. In general when it comes up we are feeling trapped and/or powerless to handle a situation. We could be dealing with fear, a lack of clarity or confusion because we don’t know what to do next, we can’t see a way out that we haven’t already tried.

I love the perspective MJ Cullinane chose for this card. When first looking at it you’re a little thrown off balance because we’re not quite sure what it is we’re looking at. Then we see the view is from the bottom of a deep hole and we are the person in the hole looking up and out for help!

Even after two days of cards suggesting we take a step back and get some perspective we seem to have missed something if this is where we are today. It’s OK everything is going to be alright. There is a way out, there is always a way out, we just have to find it.

We can do that by going over the last few days and getting some perspective, we can talk to someone we trust for guidance, and we can ask ourselves what happened or didn’t happen to get us to this point? What are we afraid of? What are we unsure about that maybe we should have questioned earlier? If we’re honest and willing to accept what might be a hard truth we’ll get clear of this and headed in the right direction again.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Thursday

Hey we’re heading to the end of our week and the card we have for the collective from the Guardian of the Night deck by MJ Cullinane is the Hermit. This is interesting because yesterday’s card guided us to take a step back and to a degree the hermit does also. For me he speaks to us about waiting to find out what is important to us. What ever we are considering or working toward this week might be an exciting opportunity but if we pursue it is the outcome in line with our goals.

Following a path that isn’t going to take us where we want to be doesn’t make a lick of sense. Ask yourself what you really want then make time to listen to your inner voices answer. The wisdom of our heart is never wrong and that is the path we should be following.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Wednesday

Hello we have something different today. The card for the collective is Temperance reversed. For me this is one of the few cards whose meaning is the same upright and reversed, the difference is in degrees.

This is an important card in our Tarot Story for the week because our cards, until now, have been encouraging action in one way or another. Now today we have Temperance reversed. Our card is about moderation, patience, integrating ideas and finding a place of balance. Being reversed tells us we need to slow down a little and rethink some things.

While we’re doing that it’s a good idea to not take any kind of action, wait. Hold off on decisions until we have a good grasp of what is going on, what we want and why. A fresh perspective would really come in handy. Are we focused on the right things? Is there too much going on right now to give this current idea or project the attention it deserves? What are our thoughts about the situation? We have some thinking to do.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Tuesday

Hey everyone we have an interesting combination of energy today. Fortunately they are both positive. Today is Litha, also known as Midsummer. For the Non-Pagans out there today is the Summer Solstice. It is the time of year when things are growing and expanding which brings me to our card for the day, the Three of Wands. How perfect is that, you just can’t fake this kind of stuff!

The Three of Wands is a card that encourages creation, movement and expansion. Whether we are dreaming up something new or thinking of taking a work in progress to the next level our card says think Big! Along with this we also need to keep our Four of Wands from yesterday in mind and not jump into anything without first planning. Don’t worry this is the beginning of something new and amazing so there is plenty of time to both dream and figure out how to make it happen.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Monday

Hey howyadoin? The card starting off the work week for the collective is a good one, the Four of Wands. Because I spend a good deal of time hanging with my friend Sharon I know that in Numerology the four is about foundations, organization and security. In the Tarot this card talks to us about celebration, commitment and taking risks. I know people don’t see taking risks as being associated with this card but getting to a place of security means taking a risk or two doesn’t it? Without a risk there is nothing to celebrate.

Look at the four wands. They are firmly in the ground so that tells us if we can get our focus off the past and take a good look at where we are now in our current situations we might be in a better position for success than we thought. Let yourself feel how good it feels then lean into it. We’ve done the planning and the work now we have to let go of any negative thoughts and see what happens.

Stay open to new ideas and opportunities. There is a good chance someone we meet could be of help down the road.

Have a good one, BJ

Weekly Tarot Story – Sunday

Hello everyone, John here back as guest reader for the Weekly Tarot Story. I am using MJ Cullinane’s Guardian of the Night Tarot. Like all her decks the artwork is awesome and it has a good hand. So let’s take a look at what the week has in store for us.

The card starting our story off is an interesting one, the Six of Cups reversed. Upright this is a card of memories, going back in our minds to time spent with family and friends. Our card is reversed though so this could be telling us it’s time to focus less on what is behind us and more on what we are working toward.

We all know there is nothing wrong with reminiscing. The problem is what happens when we live in the past focused on when the world was a nicer place or worse a painful event we can’t let go. We remain a prisoner by choice to memories, in a place and time where nothing grows. The past is the past for a reason. It’s a great place to visit now and then but not the place to unpack and stay. We need to cherish the good times, learn from the bad and live in the right now.

Have a good one, BJ
