I just updated “Your Daily Cards” at my website. This hand written reading is in the right sidebar under this title, scroll down, it’s right above the image you see below. If viewing on your phone, click on “view web version”, or you won’t see the sidebar.
Today’s general reading covers three very specific scenarios, which one do you scenario(s) do you connect with?
- someone has been waiting for so long, they need to decide if it’s time to stop
- this dreamy spacey king is going to have to get a grip
- the bickering and nitpicking in this dysfunctional group is going to lead to no where
So, did anyone connect with one or more than one of the scenarios that came up in this reading…
- the issue of secrets and deception;
- a lack of progress in a situation;
- a new love interest coming in;
- someone in your circle who is not willing to negotiate or compromise;
- the individual that’s taking off on an unwise journey back to their past;
- and then, the issue of financial matters that are not being wisely handled.
Today’s spread is called the “Crazy Brain Spread”. There’s a total of three questions/positions for this spread, and there’s a number of cards pulled for each. In today’s reading you’ll find six different scenarios. For some of you, more than one scenario may resonate.
An update on the book I’m currently writing, along with a first sneak peek at the contents!

I Updated “Your Daily Cards”, found in the right side-bar at The Witch’s Corner, if you’re viewing on your phone, you need to click on “view web version”…
YOUR DAILY CARDS:
Welcome, visitors, to The Witch’s Corner. The reading found here is created specifically for this space and for you. If you have stumbled upon this humble little sidebar and this reading, be assured that it was Spirit’s intent that you find it.
The cards: King/swords; The Empress; 4/cups; 9/wands; Temperance (the deck, Vintage Tarot)
Someone has a desire, a wish, that is at the heart of all they do and think about and probably plan for. The thing is, they might be sabotaging themselves, foiling their own plans and future. How?…”Why” might be kind of interesting here as well.
Here’s what the cards are going to tell us…
From here on out, I’m going to speak directly to the person this reading is intended for, so I’ll be using the pronouns that point in that direction. If this is NOT a reading that is connecting with you, disregard the personal pronouns, but think about the people you know and if this reading could pertain to one of them.
You aren’t going to be going anywhere, or getting nowhere, either or both. You will be feeling the frustration over your lack of progress, and the reason for this lack of progress may be the fact that you’re trying to keep someone in the dark. This gives the impression of a person working toward a goal, but keeping it a secret, or at least secret from certain people.
The energy is filled with the idea that you’re hiding something from someone.
This makes for a very tense atmosphere, because keeping secrets or ulterior motives unrecognized takes a lot of energy. You always have to be on your guard so you don’t slip up. This may also be giving you what appears to others as a very defensive attitude. (There’s part of you that must realize this defensiveness is a childlike response to doing something you know you shouldn’t be doing, or doing something that you’re pretty sure most of the people in your life would disapprove of… This is called a “conscience”, by the way, but it’s masquerading for now as defensiveness.)
The phrase “wish upon a star” came to my mind. But it lacked the whimsical fairy tale energy usually associated with it. Instead came the idea that something will need to be sacrificed if you want to get what it is you desire. My first response was a shudder: what are you willing to sacrifice? who or what will it hurt, if anyone? and what will the lasting ramifications have on you?
There is a saving grace to this scenario and this reading.
This saving grace is an individual. It’s represented by the Queen of pentacles, and my first impression is a female, of course. She’s quiet and wise. She’s nurturing and grounded and exudes a certain calmness. She also doesn’t suffer fools and will be the first to tell someone if they’re doing something that is not a good idea. Okay, I’m mincing words… she will not hesitate to tell you when you’re being stupid, and she doesn’t care what kind of response you give her, she’ll tell you anyway.
She’s your saving grace.
You can be upset with her for being honest and somewhat blunt, but don’t dismiss what she says. If you do, you won’t get anywhere (the reversed chariot); and you’ll find yourself trying in vain to explain yourself (7 of wands); and you’ll discover that there is someone who can uncover your secret or figure out your motives after all (the reversed High Priestess).
This Queen is your saving grace, know that and respect it, because the universe is not giving you a second chance here.
Yesterday I laid a group of cards and got the frame work for their story, you’ll find that here, in this blog post:
The story continues to unfold:
There’s someone who’s been very focused on a specific very complex and involved goal, so much so that they sort of have tunnel vision about it, this goal possibly centers around education and work. They know that they need this kind of focus and dedication to make this happen and reach this new plateau.
What’s happened, or about to happen in their life, is totally unplanned, it’s not something they intended to happen or even thought about at this point in time. This is just something that the universe sort of drops on them unexpectedly, something totally out of the blue. (Cupid does that, you know, you have no intention of meeting anyone, or falling in love, or becoming involved, and then — bang — there you are).
There’s still the idea of something happening very fast, accelerated energy all around, a whirlwind still; and this time the cards are telling me that this is all driven by passion, and someone speaking their truth, either to someone else, or to themselves, or to both. It’s an “aha” moment of clarity and realization.
And this does indeed change everything. The future is spinning, realigning itself; there is a change of plans.
There’s still lots of decisions to be made, but the cards are telling me that they’re no longer being made for one person by one person. These plans involve two people now. Groundwork is being laid for the future.

My Notes & Scratchings (automatic writing):
Someone “at the top” or “behind the scenes”.
One part of a couple attempting to move on from a relationship, the other partner trying to hold them back.
The Tower (reversed):
Causing a fiasco, or directing a fiasco.
It upended something previously stable.
He’s good at manifesting what he wants/He’s good at making you believe he can manifest what YOU want.
Either feeling no sense of responsibility, or avoiding or passing off responsibility.
Contact and interaction with him will lead to huge and unexpected changes in your life.
The Magician & Death
Someone is working so hard to manifest change, and someone else is trying so hard to hold them back.
This is the tale of a couple, most likely a married couple that is no more. The cards don’t tell me specifically about their life together, because that’s no longer the point. What’s past is water under the bridge. The point is the here and now, the point is their separation, or their divorce, and the energy and interactions that are happening as we speak.
One party is calmly trying to pick up the pieces and move on constructively, in anticipation of building a new life with new beginnings and new opportunities. There is a hopeful feeling of looking to the future, an excitement about new things “right around the corner”. This individual is infused with the bright energy of “happiness in the face of great change”. The ultimate optimist.
The other party to this couple is seething, angry, steeped in jealousy, regret, the loss of control. This person is not looking to the future but is stuck in the past, thinking over all the “what if’s”, seeking vainly for answers and miracles that could fix what’s broken, looking for ways to keep their former partner in a state of limbo. And in this energy, this person feels they can keep the future at bay. They seriously believe this. It feels so dark, so dark that it goes beyond the idea of a pessimist.
The cards are giving me this advice:
To the optimist: detach completely from your former partner, their connection is poisonous and will only prevent you from rebuilding your life and finding new happiness. Focus on YOU. Focus on your plans and goals and dreams, and make practical preparations to carry you through to all these things. It’s okay for you to be happy. It’s okay for you to feel positive about your future, as you should. Leave all negativity behind and follow the sunshine… you deserve it.
To the King of Pentacles: seek therapy. You need to talk to someone. You need to talk to someone to regain a healthy focus on your life and the situation that you’re in now. You need to talk to someone who can help you work through all these negative feelings that will hold you back and prevent you from building a new and healthy life for yourself. You need to talk to someone who can teach you how to get in touch with positive energy. You need to leave the darkness behind… and you need to leave your former partner alone.
These cards have been laying on the table beside my computer for days. Sometimes, when I’ve sat down, I would pick a notebook up and jot down impressions from the cards. I did this two or three times, until a story started to unfold.
The story is about a couple, a young couple it seems, and how a jealous bystander, whether in the form of a “friend”, sibling, colleague, etc., played into the near destruction of their incredible connection. No matter how strong a couple thinks they are, repeated and malicious invasive thoughts in the guise of “advice” from an outsider can chip away at the strongest foundations. It’s a mind game, and it’s insidious.
The couple were, of course, affected by the negativity of this individual and the insipid cloying conversations that ensued in the guise of good advice, and things this person “just thought you should know” — no matter how false and fabricated the stories.
And the really vicious thing about it is this individual was apparently befriending both parties separately, worming their way in as a confidant and sounding board, someone with a shoulder to lean on, someone who (or so the individuals thought) had their best interest and the interest of the relationship at heart. (So untrue, all of it, the only thing this poisonous connection wanted was to ruin something because it was beautiful and amazing and they didn’t have one like it.)
There’s people out there like that, you know, as much as we might not want to believe it, or think about it.
I’m not sure what turned events around, what opened this couples eyes to the truth and to each other, what betrayed the wolf in sheep’s clothing, what exposed the jealous plot to divide this couple. Who saw it first; how did they approach this individual, if at all; how did they come to a joint realization that they were actually on the same page and didn’t need any outside assistance to maintain their relationship, thank you.
I don’t have that information. The cards wouldn’t tell me this. But that’s okay, I don’t need to know. The cards showed me the end of the story, the good part, the happy ever after ending, the ending that gives credence to loyalty and forever-love and magical life connections.
The couple survived this onslaught, and I’m sure that they learned much from this experience, and needless to say, this will probably never happen to them again, because now they are “aware”, and once you “know”, you can never “unknow”.
True love prevails… it’s true, it really does.
I thought this was going to be three separate readings on three separate topics for three separate individuals out there, that’s what I thought. Spirit — and the cards — had a different idea. I was amazed as these three readings unfolded and a definite theme emerged; it was obviously a story aimed at one individual with a definite question that needs to be addressed. So, I combined the three taped readings into one video. And the question remains: Are you going to keep up appearances, or are you going to follow your heart?
Good morning, World! Here’s our cards for today and a very important question/issue for someone out there. So, which is it? Always remember, tomorrow’s a new day, changes can be made, boundaries drawn, things done differently. It’s never too late to turn over a new leaf.
The cards are being very precise and personal this morning and focusing on an issue that is very close to the heart. I have no idea who this reading is for, but I also have no doubt that you will definitely know if it is you.
At the center of this situation is an older male, feels like a father or father figure, and a younger individual, could be either male or female, but my feeling is that there is a deep familial connection between these two, and it isn’t always smooth. Much head-butting and arguments here, but then, they feel incredibly alike, so that’s understandable.
At the center of the latest confrontation lay: 1) a decision and 2) a new relationship that has some pitfalls and drawbacks, or baggage, connected to it 3) big changes, or something coming to a completion — or both.
So, younger person, are you going to listen to the pros and cons (probably mostly cons) from your elder? And elder, are you going to listen to the pros and cons (probably mostly pros) from your young person?
I feel that the important issue in this group of cards is not the new relationship or any final decisions being made about it; the important issue is the relationship between father and child.
Spirit is advising that you do not let decisions and disagreements (and stubbornness) in this physical world of man destroy a soul connection that is eternal.
- To the elder: their decision may be a mistake (and it may not be), but if it is they will learn from it and move on. This may be something that they are suppose to experience in order to learn and progress.
- To the youngster: it’s difficult being a parent and setting free the small child (that you will always be in their mind and memory) and allowing them to go down a path that they feel is wrought with difficulty. All parents want to spare their children from experiencing unpleasantness.
At the end of the day, give each other a hug and persevere.
Someone has been so thrown for a loop over a significant change in their life:
You didn’t have all the facts, or you most definitely weren’t expecting the tumultuousness of it all. You might even feel a bit of betrayal, as though someone was keeping something from you, or perhaps even twisting the facts to their benefit, to make their argument stronger, more convincing.
At this point, you may be wishing that you’d taken more time to think it over, or you may be wishing that you had not undertaken this change in the first place, or done it so quickly, or been so naively trusting. But it’s too late now to retreat. The best that you can do is find your voice to make your feelings known — loud, and clear, and honest. The best that you can do now is face the individual that was not forthcoming with all the facts and pin them to the wall with your own knowledge and the pivotal points that you have uncovered through your own research (this is going to be necessary, you know that).
With all that said, you’ll come out of this wiser, with more self-confidence, and with a keener insight into human nature. This is one of many life lessons that were waiting for you here, on the physical plane, and there will be more to come. You’re learning how to handle difficult situations and people, how to dig up pertinent and solid information, and how to confront someone who is not being honest — good job!
I did six quick video tarot readings this morning, you’ll find them all at this link:
You may find yourself taking on a difficult conversation, and not by choice. In order to make a point, in order to reach a goal, in order to come out ahead (in a positive way), you may be called upon to face someone, or a situation, head on. This is going to mean talking to them, or talking about it. This is the only way you’re going to clear the air and celebrate your independence and peace of mind.
Spirit says, “Swallow the bitter pill first, and celebrate with sweet wine afterward.”
By opening the channel of communication in a straight forward (sometimes blunt) manner, you will put something into motion that’s been sitting at a stand still. You will revive a situation, a relationship, or a person with a new sense of passion and energy. You will cut through insignificant people, opinions, or influences that are no longer serving you.
- (Strength; King/cups — reversed; 8/wands — reversed; Queen/wands; extra cards — Queen/swords; The Devil)
You may need a bit of strength to have a difficult, but long over-due, conversation with a manipulative and rather daunting individual. Good luck making your point, this will require some eloquent persistence, but even then, you may feel that you’re beating your head against the wall, and you may feel that you are not succeeding in making your point.
The thing is, although the individual you’re trying to get through to may be too dense to get it, the effect of voicing your opinions, your feelings, your ultimatums, your truths, your concerns, and your solutions is going to be an unexpected cathartic experience that finally allows you to move on from this individual and the situation they represent. It will be an internal cleansing you may not even have realized you needed.
If this manipulative and controlling individual held any sway over you, they will lose this magical hold once you have found your voice and your courage.
Embrace the new you… and your new-found voice.
