Physically ~ Ace of Swords
For some of you… there are unpleasant physical reactions to other people’s harsh words, criticism, and negative intentions. It’s very easy for someone less sensitive to tell you that you have to get a grip on this, we all know that it’s just not that simple. The problem is that you feel the emotional aspect so intensely it transforms into physical ramifications.
For a few of you… you’re holding on so tightly, trying so hard to remain balanced and unaffected by the onslaught of negativity around you. You may try to ignore an individual’s intrusion into your life, your space, but the very effort to do so is in itself a physical demand that’s become overwhelming.
What do you need physically?… you need to find a way to either remove a specific person or situation from your life altogether, or you need to remove them from your mind and your daily thoughts. Both suggestions are probably equally difficult. Another way around this is to have a diversion ready when you are triggered, such as a key word to repeat mentally to yourself, or a comforting vision to hold in your thoughts, until you feel the tension subside. This might seem like a very temporary fix, but I think you’ll find that it will be enough to relieve some of the physical reactions your body throws at you.
Emotionally ~ 10 of pentacles
For some of you… you’re desperately in need of stability. Whether this instability stems from financial situations, or relationship issues, or something unique to you and your life, without a stable foundation it’s very difficult, if not impossible, to progress and to progress with lasting effect.
For a few of you… you’re trapped inside the box because you’re afraid to break out and instigate change. You may feel constricted and restrained by family and tradition, and you’re not sure what the reaction would be if you did embrace the true you and your life as you’d like it. This suppresses you. The thing is, does it really matter, other people’s reactions? If yes, you might find yourself trapped forever in a life pattern that is not your own.
What do you need emotionally?… you need courage to embrace your true self and the realization that you have the power to manifest it. You also need to make necessary changes to your life that would bring about more mental and emotional stability. For a few of you, this may mean the end of a troublesome relationship; for others it may mean the strength to leave a job or career behind in order to achieve success and a feeling of accomplishment on another path.
Mentally ~ Knight of Wands
For some of you… there is the need to tame your passion and lust for life in order to direct it, to use it, to develop it to your advantage in a deliberate way. You might feel scattered and somewhat puzzled because your mind can’t handle all the information that it’s trying to digest and categorize. This often happens with children and adults who suffer from attention deficit disorders. You’re brilliant, you just have too many voices in your head at one time. There is the need to slow down your racing mind in order to make sense of it all, in order to organize your thoughts and be able to put them into constructive controlled action.
For a few of you… you’re burned out. You’ve been through something that has left you feeling depleted, exhausted, numb, inert. Your mind needs a break from whatever life has thrown at you in order to heal and energize itself. Removing yourself from an individual, or a set of circumstances, if only for a short while, may help you to feel mentally rejuvenated and refreshed, able to look at an old problem from a new perspective.
What do you need mentally?… some of you need a vacation, literally, time away from your everyday life in order to allow your mind the freedom to roam, and imagine, and rest, and follow it’s whims. Others need to tame this wild beast, this racing madness that comes to you most profoundly during solitary moments. Once, long ago, when I was just starting life on a new path, a voice came to me literally, and it said: “Learn to control your mind.”
Spiritually ~ Knight of Cups
For some of you… you’re seeking love, quite simply, and you might be having some difficulty finding it on your spiritual quest. Love comes in so many shapes and forms, it could’ve fit any of the categories in this tarot spread, but it showed up here. The kind of love that encompasses spirituality can embrace all levels of our lives and psyche. An overwhelming ability to love ourselves and to feel this positive energy from those closest to us is fundamental for our own well being, but we also need to tap into the bigger picture and take advantage of universal energy. Don’t give up the quest; don’t surrender to pessimism or skepticism.
For a few of you… you’ve put love on hold, or you’re taking a passive stance when it comes to seeking, or chasing, this elusive treasure. And for a small minority, trudging through daily life, believing that everything in your reality is “okay”, you wonder what is giving the gray pall of a lackluster finish to your world and your spiritual life — It’s the lack of love. Nothing that you aspire to learn, to grow, to create, or to experience will be complete without it.
What do you need spiritually?… you need to learn how to tap into universal energy that is powered by and entrenched in love. It’s like a virus, so to speak, once you’ve made this connection on a spiritual level, it will hit a personal level, and go on and on throughout all aspects of your life.
How you currently feel ~ 4 of swords
For some of you… there’s the definite feeling that you need to recharge your batteries. You’ve drained yourself through a series of life’s circumstances, and you won’t be able to travel much further on your chosen path if you can’t rewind your tapes, erase the negativity, adjust the reality, and renew your purpose. There is the idea of “faunching at the bit”, as my grandmother would say, as in a horse that’s fighting the reins, crazy with the idea of taking off at full speed on an independent run. Grab those reins and go, you’ve been waiting for this opportunity for a long time.
For a few of you… there’s still the weight of responsibility (imaginary, real, or magnified), as well as a group or an individual who doesn’t want you to spread your wings. Someone around you may feel stuck in a rut, and they don’t want to be alone, so they will say and do what they have to in order to hold you back, to break your self-confidence, and to feed your self-doubt. Remember, also, that sometimes we do this to ourselves. Learn to recognize this, and you can beat it. You can learn to let go and soar.
The Empress ~ Five of Swords ~ Seven of Cups
For some of you… issues of pregnancy, fertility, sexuality, and birth are going to dominate your existence. For some there will be difficult decisions to make during the course of this event, or difficult prognoses to accept.
For a few of you… fertility brings a surprise. It might take some getting used to, as you haven’t thought of this scenario, so don’t be afraid to spend some time wrapping your mind around it. This doesn’t feel like a negative, just totally unexpected and out of the blue. For a lucky few, this might mean an unexpected (or hidden) twin.
For a very small group… an unexpected pregnancy may leave you with some very difficult decisions to make. Not everyone will be happy by this turn of events. Look at your life, the life of your unborn child, and decide on the best course of action. You’ll find a variety of choices placed before you.
Sunday, May 26, 2019 ~ Deck: Sacred Circle Tarot
Tarot Spread: Mediumship Spread
1 ~ the person who has passed on
Abandonment/8 of cups
This is someone who left your life and inner circle before they passed, either a spouse or romantic partner, a child, or a parent. Their disassociation with you during life may not have felt to them that they were leaving anything behind, or abandoning anyone, but to family members around them, and particularly to you, this may have been exactly how you felt about their departure from your life.
2 ~ their life, looking back
The Green Man (coincides with The Fool in a standard deck)
Lots of foolishness, a gay naivete that accompanied youth or puberty, the teen years. It included poor choices, a long journey (figuratively), as in getting back to a point in the road or a juncture of life that was abandoned for a while. Spunk, bravado, pride, aloofness, sometimes condescension comes to mind. Also, “ulterior motives” may accompany their life experiences. I also feel that this may represent a young male, either indicating that this individual died young, or this is how they choose to represent themselves to me, as in wanting to appear as they were during a happy period in their life.
3 ~ a lesson they’d like to share
Regret/5 of cups
This individual expresses a lot of regret from their vantage point on the other side. This includes relationships thrown away; opportunities tossed aside; many losses experienced on a variety of levels. I feel the biggest thing that this spirit wants to share with us is not to miss out on, or lose something, that is or could be precious in our lives. Don’t take anything for granted. Don’t treat important things in your life frivolously.
4 ~ something they wish they’d paid more attention to
Success/6 of wands
This spirit wishes they’d paid more attention to meeting goals, that they would have worked harder to achieve more in their life. I believe this individual became so wrapped up in other activities or relationships that they were led off a chosen path, lured away from the direction their life was meant to go. There is also the idea of being bound against one’s will from actively making decisions and implementing action during their life that would have precipitated success. He’s telling us to be vigilant, don’t be easily swayed by convincing people and shiny promises that will prove destructive and hollow.
5 ~ a message from this spirit to us
The Web/major arcana #11
Spirit is apologizing for getting himself caught up in unfavorable circumstances and decisions that affected your life. He’s incredibly regretful of any pain or trauma that he may have caused during his life time to loved ones and family. This spirit realizes that there is no way to take back the experiences of his previous life and make amends to the people he touched, but he wants you to know that he is well aware of the repercussions his life had on you, and he’s sorry, so very sorry. Also, he may choose to show his presence to you in the appearance of a white dog. When you see a white dog, a white dog that grabs your attention, know that this spirit is present and making a connection with you.

4/swords (R) ~ Some of us need to try harder. It’s so easy to become complacent when we’ve either tried and failed too often, or been brain-washed to believe that we can’t succeed in the first place.
The Tarot Parlour ~
I’ve recently added a new page to The Tarot Parlour offering more options for audio readings in the form of fascinating and insightful tarot spreads.

A new zodiac tarot video has just been posted
at The Tarot Parlour on this page.
The Tarot Parlour posted a new video on this page ~
It’s time for me to take a break from book writing and spend some quality time creating a blog post (much more fun and relaxing than book writing, no pressure). This week at my Facebook page, The Tarot Parlour, I posted a tarot spread titled “The Week Ahead”, and I drew three cards for this reading. Below is the spread, the cards, and my interpretation. I drew these cards randomly, with no one in particular in mind; however, I wouldn’t be surprised if these cards wind up resonating with me, or with some of my readers. That’s just how the tarot rolls.
The Cards ~
For some of us, it’s actually time to put ourselves first. A little narcissism, at the right time and for the right reasons, is actually a good thing. Whether you are having questions or doubts about a relationship, or a career change, or something else uniquely personal to you. It’ about time you stop going over in your mind the repercussions your decision will make on every single person remotely connected to this situation and start thinking about the repercussions it’s having on YOU.
2. What you need to do ~
You need to kick to the curb all of those things that are standing in your way. There’s something you need to do, and there might be something you need to eliminate from your life in order to accomplish this… addictive behavior; codependent behavior, an individual or individuals who don’t have your best interest at heart, and maybe even if they do; your own fears and doubts and insecurities. The list could go on. What is it that you’re thinking about doing? What’s holding you back? How driven are you to reach this goal? What are the repercussions for you if you don’t? Is there a time frame to all of this?
3. The challenge ~
The biggest challenge for you is taking that first step. The unknown is scary; doing something big on your own is scary; taking a new path, beginning a new journey, turning a new page… they’re all scary. It takes a great deal of courage, and a nice chunk of self-confidence to turn your back on the familiar and start off down the universal road to the Future looking the Unknown directly in the eye the whole time. Conquering your own fears and doubts is part of the challenge. Identify them, get acquainted with them, embrace them, laugh at them, and discard them. Your journey awaits.

I’ll be giving tarot readings at Next Millennium Friday, September 28th 3-7pm. This will be the last time I’m giving public tarot readings. Thank you to Next Millennium for hosting me all these years! In the future, I will be providing Audio or Video readings only, and those can be purchased at my tarot website: http://tarotreadingswithamythystraine.blogspot.com/
Thank you to all the wonderful people who have come for readings over the past years, and especially to those of you who kept coming back! It’s been my pleasure reading for you.
If you haven’t experienced an audio reading, visit The Tarot Parlour and give it a spin. You’ll discover that these are a fast and easy way to obtain a uniquely personal reading. I read for people all over the world, and through the magick of technology we’ve made some amazing tarot connections.
In the wee hours of Sunday night (or early Monday morning), some of my kids and I will be headed for the Omaha airport where we’re flying out to Arizona. There are connections there now that I feel will grow with the years. I’m going to take advantage of this trip to immerse myself in Sedona for a few days and then go on to the Grand Canyon. I’m such an incurable home-body that this is a step away from my usual existence, ensconced in my old house and the busy rooms, enjoying the woodsy wild back yard, and just being surrounded by and appreciating our multitude of pets (mostly cats, 6 of them black), and all of this in perfect contentment.
But destiny calls.
I’ve been going through checklists of things to do, things to get, things to address, before leaving. The house-sitter is set with a loaded pantry and fridge and an abundance of pet supplies. Financial things are done, and strangely enough most of my monthly household bills have come in and been paid, so that’s one less thing to think about. I have to pack today (Saturday), and I have one more work-as-usual day coming up (Sunday). And then, we’re off!
I’ll be posting regular updates, photos, and video clips both at my Instagram and at my main Facebook page:
I’ve managed to get a few last minute witchy business things done, which were also on my list, including my Samhain Special at The Witch’s Corner: follow this link and scroll down, it’s right there http://amythystraine.blogspot.com
I’ve put together a charming little bag to celebrate Samhain and draw in the spirits, spirits of the season and spirits we wish to communicate with. Samhain is traditionally a time to connect with our ancestors and especially loved ones who have passed.
Honor your ancestors, and honor the spirit of Samhain,
with these magickal items.
The Samhain Special:
a white spirit dollie,
a bottle of Black Cat Oil,
and a black votive candle
*Note: The Black Cat Oil included in this offer
is safe for your skin, so feel free to wear it!
It’s my own recipe, and it
From The Tarot Parlour ~
With Samhain right around the corner, the end of the year coming, so many of us are questioning so many things about our lives. There’s relationships and the changes that come with them, the doubts, the questions, the mystery of it all. Some of us have reached pivotal points where jobs and careers are concerned.
If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Is this it? Is this all there is to my life? Is this where I’m suppose to be?”… you’re more than ready for a reading to find some answers.

an Audio Reading
If you visit The Tarot Parlour, you’ll notice that a lot of options for readings through several types of mediums are no longer available. I’ll only be offering Audio Readings (in a wide variety of spreads & prices), and Video readings ($85) for a 9 card spread. You’ll also find a video on this page that was taped for a client so that you get an idea of what a personal video reading is like. (It’s a lot like sitting across the table from me, but you’ll be watching it on Youtube.)
I think this is called “semi-retirement”. I want to share my gift by doing what I love, and I love taping audio readings for my clients in the privacy of my home, usually ensconced at one of my patio tables in my wild and woodsy back yard. This is the most profound way that I connect with the cards and the cards connect with me. It’s magickal.
The video below is a promotional video I created for The Tarot Parlour, and I must admit I had a hoot playing with the special effects. Have a magickal day, and if Spirit is calling to you, book a reading with me so that we can get a clearer picture.
