Tarot and Oracle Card Decks that Luna uses

For the 31 days of Tarot topic of the day I filmed a little video talking about the various Tarot and Oracle Card Decks I use for personal use. And it’s quite a lot, I’m actually surprised at the amount.

Note: No cards are shown, it’s just me chatting away because I mention several decks that I did not get permission to post public images of.

Btw I plan on illustrating my own deck one day … one day


Preparing for the New Moon in June

(Cards depicted are the Sacred Symbols Oracle Deck by Marcella Kroll

The ending of Mercury Retrograde last week combined with the cleansing of ourselves and gratitude for & commemoration of the Ancestors [through celebration] this weekend, we are grounded and ready to build towards out goals. Focusing on physical symbols of the dream we wish to manifest will assist us and keep us on track, and a good foundation will protect us. It is time to transmute and uplift our energy as we move forward!

We prepare for the New Moon, and a new Cycle.

Suggestions
Meditation stills the mind and lets the subconscious unravel into the stream of consciousness, relaxing the self.

Ease the mind and build the self, this upgrade in energy within allows us to focus our external actions towards our goals and build external foundations for growth.

Reading on Personal Growth : Going Within to Heal

I like to periodically ask about how I can move forward and Grow. This is the reading I got right before i headed to a class/session with teacher and psychic medium Debora Hookey who along with some other members of the circle, gave me very enlightening messages from my guides. Specifically within my family … with whom i’v had some issues with … My grandfather came through and reminded me to let go of my anger and embrace forgiveness, which ties into another reading i did a few weeks ago on romantic relationships … I must grow and move past my current obstacles before i can move into a healthy partnership.

April Growth

I must ground myself inside, instead of going out to try and connect with the universe. I must be within myself, cultivate awareness of the partnership between myself, my spirit, my body, my mind, and my spirit guides who are linked to source.

within myself
within my body
within the chambers of my heart
within the whirling thoughts of my mindhttp://oceanbluepsyche.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=jetpack
within the journey of my soul

a song about a Hero plays in the background … I want to be a Hero … and I will be my own Hero in my story

I should reach out to friends when I am in need, instead of powering through and burning out by myself, they are there for me, spirit is there ready to give me messages that can help me move forward as I accept them with gratitude.

I use the Sacred Symbols Oracle cards by Marcella Kroll, for this, and daily energy readings.

A couple weeks ago i wanted to pick up my Halloween Deck again after a break. i really love Wisdom of the Oracle cards so much that i have been using them nonstop and now they are starting to become damaged at the corners. Anyways, i like the halloween deck and am glad that i picked it up for my reading on Romantic Relationships

Love & Forgiveness
Halloween Oracle Deck by Stacey Demarco & illustrated by Jimmy Manton

I call this layout the Cross of the Self

I asked:

  • What I yearn for?
  • What I seek?
  • What to know?
  • Who I am
  • What am I trying to be?

I yearn for a release from fear as I seek something other than love … stability and support that was not present in my past … I need to know that now is the time for Forgiveness to help heal the wounds from the past. I am unaware of my natural luck, and I keep trying to be Strong

After the healing and growth, that is when I will be ready for a fulfilling partnership.

We all try to be strong and face the world, sometimes overlooking the areas where we nee healing and care. We must face the world in order move forward, Spirit reminds us to always come home to the heart and be in touch what our soul wants … hidden behind the fears and wants of ego, and the complexities of the mind, our spirit speaks to us.


Certification Workshop with Marcella Kroll & Readings on Love & Career

This past Sunday i attended Marcella Kroll‘s Sacred Symbols Oracle Training Workshop. It was a very informative, helpful, and interactive class where Marcella explained the story and meaning behind each card, what tarot archetypes or suits it relates to (if any), what it could mean for different questions, such as what might infer yes and what might infer no. She went through all the cards, one by one, and before she moved on to the next card she would ask us if we had any questions, and answer all of them fully. I asked about reversals because I read reversals, which is not common with oracle card use. I actually forgot her explanation and can’t find it in my notes, but I know that she mentioned that she did not read reversals and I think she mentioned that we could see it as blocked energy. If I find something else in my notes I will add it to this entry. After she went through all the cards individually, she recommended some layouts and gave us some exercises to practice reading them with. She told us about the Card of the Day, and 3 Card Draw, she even read one for us so we could see how she interpreted a combination. Then we all did a 4 Card Full Oracle Spread on Career before partnering up and doing a reading for each other.

Here is my Career Full Oracle Spread:
CAREER

It is a pretty sweet spread which says that the Spirits give me their Blessings to pursue whatever career I have chosen. To move forward I need to let go of the stormy drama (stress and anxiety). What I should call in to assist me is drawing upon acceptance and surrender to change, letting the past die so I can move into the next phase of this journey. The outcome is cutting away of everything that no longer serves me.

I tacked on two more cards to see what else Spirit wanted to relay and feel thankful that they urged me to Grow and and reassured me by letting me know that i am Safe.
Career with add ons

When we partnered up, I decided to ask my partner Jessica to read about Love ie Romantic Relationships, I even joked that I had decided to ask her to read about the cheesiest most stereotypical and common question asked. Here is the photo of the spread:
LOVE

I really enjoyed and appreciated her interpretation! She said that Currently I am experiencing firey and short term relationships. I should let go of outdated messages about relationships and the beliefs they created within me. What I can call in the assist with this letting go is Grounding, being centered within myself so that I an know and thus call in what is best for me. The result is Transmutation, an upwards change in my energy and vibration.

Some other subjects that Marcella touched up on was to be Mindful of how we communicate, to speak and act with compassion so that we give the questioner the message they need or would help them the most in their situation. And doing that while remaining honest, and pulling extra cards to help clarify. I found it really interesting that she mentioned this because Debra Hookey has also mentioned this in her Psychic Development classes. That we, as readers, are there to Help others. Marcella also mentioned that since we were not certified/experienced therapists, we should be conscious of when to draw the line and recommend therapy or something else. For example, if someone asked the same question Repeatedly and never learned anything from what we said nor took any of our advice. Many of the readers in the classes I take with Debra Hookey actually have counseling backgrounds, degrees and certifications so the discussion is a little different there. However both teachers have the same message for all us students. To be caring, compassionate, and helpful to the people who trust us enough to ask us for advice.

At the end of class she gave us some cleansing oil so that we could cut cords with whatever attachments may have formed in our class and not take other people’s stuff home with us 😛 It was fragrant and felt very pleasant on the skin. Even though i felt amazingly peaceful and comfortable within her classroom environment, I am thankful that she was considerate enough to prepare this for us. I gratefully accept her teachings & cleansing and proudly show the certificate I earned from taking her workshop!

Thursday, February 18 Reading & Soulmate Confusion

I had a really interesting reading today, in which all cards were right side up and i got both Yin 陰 and Yang 陽! I like to use oracle cards and read them both intuitively and also with the booklet. I will use use the instructional meaning for the right side up version and then intuitively read the reversal, since most oracle decks, including this one, do not come with reversal meanings … in fact, None of the ones i own have a “reversal” meaning, not even Visionary Tarot which is kinda like tarot but a little different. This deck, Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards, does come with a massive and very descriptive instructional booklet though 😀 . So far i have ignored the entire introduction and just looked up a few meanings while i read with random spreads. I have been using familiar spreads as often as my own spreads lately, and i will write another post about “creating” your own spreads: more like thinking “hey i want this card in this position to mean this” and then shuffling and laying them out that way … it really is that easy.

Here is my collage of the main Daily reading in the center with some additional celtic crosses read from the bottom of the deck or “shadow side” as some online sources call it. ( i am currently working on a post about my customized spreads … …. and collecting photos for them 🙂 … preview notes: i like to ask yes or no questions even though it is highly discouraged among most readers … it really depends on What you are asking yes/no for, if it is “appropriate” and whether or not the spirits actually Want to give you an answer … if they Don’t want to answer, then they say Both yes & no, which has happened to me)

…..image taken down because i do not have permission to post images of the Wisdom of the Oracle Deck……

Allow, Feel, Know and then Act and Create

I keep going around in circles because I have unfinished business to attend to. Now is a time of regeneration, to revive and rebuild my unfinished symphonies. Be receptive of what comes, allowing information and events to flow into my life, and then act upon them.

Right now is a time of acceptance, so let the tension go, and soon I will be receiving help. In the distant past I was happy, then i went through some difficulty accepting a message. In the future I will deal with feelings of being lost and alone. An issue that I should be dealing with is my conflicted feelings surrounding exchanging gifts equitably. Now am not following the lead of others and also not mending wounds that need to be healed, i am worried about a lack of reward but all my hard work but I am headed towards a mother load of Treasure and pay off!

Personal Notes
I have issues with feeling taken advantage of, Really being taken advantage of, trying really hard to make clients happy with my ventures, only to face a bunch of hagglers who want to pay me less than minimum wage and don’t even consider the fact that i have to pay my bills and manage all this time i’m putting into what i give … right now i gave up trying to get paid for my “work” and mostly volunteer with organizations or do skill trade with people who Appreciate my work and are unable to pay for it with money. However, I do receive a Really nice skill trade and i Really appreciate what they give in exchange.
Sometimes i want to keep giving things to friends and they will neither want nor need what i want to offer … plants, advice, food, assistance … it gets silly … on my part … and then a good friend will remind me that it is not my business to worry about others as i must prioritize myself and my daughter so that we are both taken care of first before i attempt to assist others. I like giving, I like helping others, and i have a ton of info in my head that spills out of my mouth when i chat. However, I need to remember to not lecture people and overload with with random info they are not interested in hearing. Even if it may help them, if they don’t want to hear it, they won’t, and it Won’t help them.

(back to the reading)
Also, there is a change in the wind and when I can look at everything from a distance, hence gaining some perspective, I will have a better understanding of everything. It is best to be poised & ready! In the past I had difficulty finding the truth, then I had trouble aligning myself with the divine timing that was available (bad time management!!). The Future brings difficulty resting or sleeping. Now I am in resonance with soulmate energy as it is time to go and move into the future. I fear not having gone as far as i needed to with my current projects, and hence my reluctance with dropping some. However, I am on my way to meeting and being amongst my people!

personal notes
i have been sleeping very little and or very late … usually a combination of both … as i stay up late catching up to all my work and whatever else is needed to complete my projects … last week i stayed up late dancing and working on choreography for a dance competition that was on February 13 and 14. I didn’t place but it was FUN and a Great experience in general 😀 … this weekend I will be out learning about intuitive reading and new age spirituality.

Soul Mate Confusion
So the night before (or morning of lol) the 18th i had a very restless dream where i met an ex (the same guy who gave me a coffin in that last post) who was now dating someone else and for some reason all three of us kept hanging out. I was glad that the ex was in happy relationship with this new woman (and not interested in him at all) but i didn’t want to constantly be around them, it was Uncomfortable. So this day i did many other readings and the soulmate cards in two different oracle decks kept popping up and i was perplexed and wondering why?? Since i did and confirmed that 1) We are not soul mates 2) We already cut cords on BOTH ends. THEN i did a reading asking if this person was just how my psyche represented my soulmate and i got YES which made me feel SO Relieved!!!

SO the main thing about Soul Mate Confusion i wanted to write here is that our psyche will mix fantasy with reality, past with the murmurs of the future, and create fantastical illusions that although elude to a truth, are not 100% logical/reasonable and may be difficult to understand. Like being in sync with soul mate energy and then see an ex in a dream … Anyone else have had their psyche use images of people from the past to represent certain archetypes (like a soul mate, twin flame or teacher) in a Confusing way in visions and or dreams?
