Anxiety anyone?

There are five positions for this spread, and I drew four separate sets of cards (timestamps below) to cover different situations and scenarios. The five questions that you’ll find included for each set of cards is the following: 

1. Card to represent how I’m feeling today 
2. What my anxiousness is stemming from 
3. How I can begin to release this anxious feeling 
4. Something that will help ease my mind 
5. How I can feel grounded in the present moment 

The four sets of cards and their scenarios will be found at the following time stamps: 

  • 1:51​ Caught in a turmoil 
  • 4:51​ Choices and indecision 
  • 7:32​ Disruption of domesticity 
  • 10:53​ Overwhelmed by work

What do I need to let go of?

Here’s your tarot spread for today: “What do I need to let go of?”… 1) for peace of mind; 2) to lighten my heart; 3) to free my soul. I drew several sets today, in order to draw as many scenarios and possibilities as I could for this general reading.

Seeing things from a new perspective, coming clean

It might be time to look at a situation, or a relationship, from a new perspective to see it for what it really is, breaking the spell. It may also be time to come clean and confess, taking your medicine with dignity, rather than allowing someone to blackmail and manipulate you with secret knowledge they hold.

Three Desert Readings for You


Who’s going to make the first move…

If a couple can overcome a negative feminine influence, a major transition, and one of them is willing to start the conversation, it just might work.

Past person, present person, going forward…

After doing this reading (and experiencing 63 years of relationships), I’ve come to the conclusion that All relationships, at one time or another, have the essence of a shit show about them. It’s the lucky people who can go forward and start over to succeed that inspire.

The Narcissist: working it out, or walking away…

This was a totally general reading. I had no idea where it was going to go when I started it, but as always, Spirit tells you what someone needs to hear. Think about it.

Desert Reading ~ Monthly Check-in Spread

The main message that came through for today’s cards: Don’t repeat past mistakes, or you’ll wind up right back where you started.

Healing… how long is too long

Today’s reading is all about relationships and healing in order to move on. I know we’re not suppose to put a time-limit on someone else’s period of mourning when a relationship ends, but when it begins to negatively impact your present, don’t you think its finally time to “get over it”?

Infectious pus aka toxic relationship

Today’s reading may be a wee bit rough. So many of us have been here, coming off a toxic unhealthy relationship, trying to pick up the pieces, and trying to go forward to create a new and healthy relationship for our future — not always an easy task. Stick with the reading… there IS light at the end of the tunnel.

Make a choice, it’s time for some consistency

Today’s desert reading: It’s time for someone to make a decision and stick to it… for real this time! Someone has to get their shit together in the relationship arena. This is way more complicated and emotional than it needs to be. Need some help? — “Two’s company, three’s a crowd.” There, wasn’t that easy?

Desert Reading ~ It bites the dust

This is a month that is focused on relationships, and this reading high-lights the drama of a long standing relationship that is going (or has gone) up in flames and the ramifications that follow when both parties go through an adjustment.

Desert Reading ~ Mourning, Movement, Walking Away, New Rules

If this reading resonates with you, or you just enjoy watching it, please pass it along.  I don’t know where YouTube hides my videos, but I have to have a word with Algorithm and ask him, “What the hell?”  I’ve been searching YT for tarot readers that are not easy to find, that are hidden from the suggested videos, and I’ve found many that are wonderfully talented and eloquent. I may do a blog post after I’ve compiled a bunch of links, to promote YT’s hidden creators.

Start planning… an animated tarot reading with an expanded written addition

The cards you just viewed in the video:

5/pentacles; 6/swords/ (R); 5/cups (R)

This is such a sorry set of cards, I felt that we could use an expanded version of this reading to gain some clarity.  So here we go…

Queen/pentacles; Ace/cups (R); The Fool

Your usual self-confidence in your financial situation and decisions will be wounded by this set-back; but someone close to you may be either oblivious to it, or they are aloof to it.  Whichever way it is, you are the one who’s going to be fretting and stressing over this series of events.  It’s hardly surprising that this new set of circumstances will put a strain on a relationship that may already be strained and even at a pivotal point right now.  If you were wondering if there was an end in sight to the relationship, there is… now.  This financial set-back is like the straw that broke the camel’s back, just one more issue that you can’t agree on.

Page/cups; 10/swords; 9/pentacles

This is a time where the veil thins, as they say, only this veil has to do with relationships and new connections.  You will find that there’s someone close to you just waiting to step up to the plate and be supportive of you, your circumstances, the trials and tribulations you’re facing.  This may be someone who stood beside you in the shadows for a very long time, and you had no idea that is them who would be there to help you pick up the pieces.  

There’s enough negativity that goes with financial setbacks without including a cold and unresponsive partner.  It’s time to pull the swords out of your back, and also to stop feeling sorry for yourself and the state of your relationship and life, and move forward on a more positive note.  Enough is enough.  When it’s over, it’s over. It just takes some people a while to see this.

Your life is set on a new course.  There’s a new journey to make.  There are plans to set in place.  Once you start moving forward on such an expansive level, there’s no time to look back, or to wallow in regret.  It’s time to plan for a new future, and this time, learn from your mistakes so that you don’t repeat them.  

Financial matters, confrontation, and judgmental energy

The reading starts at time stamp 1:26. You’ll also hear my phone ring at 14:14, and you may recognize it because it’s the same melody that I use in some of my tarot videos. I also managed to knock the camera off it’s stand at one point, so there’s quite a bit of editing that had to be done on this episode. But it’s all good. 

Finances and material concerns seem to be the main focus today, both for the individual as well as a couple. There’s a lot of snarky bickering and disagreement within a family, as well as misplaced advice and judgey energy for a couple.
