March 27, 2017 New Moon Forecast : Regaining Self-Trust, ReAssessing the Exchanges, Grounding in Emotional Security and Understanding in our Own Path

March 27, 2017 New Moon Tarot Forecast by Luna is about Regaining Self-Trust and ReAssessing the Exchanges we have in Place while Grounding in Emotional Security and Understanding as we walk our own path.

This upcoming cycle is looking very emotionally comforting and encouraging so I wish everyone the best with their new projects, ideas, inspirations, and “work”!

What is ending is our distrust of ourselves as we feel foolish, what begins is Emotional Security and abundance and we feel in sync with our truth and have Emotional Unity with our Mind, Body and Spirit.

How to release the ending cycle is to get started on our new projects and plans! What helps us move forward into the new cycle is reassessing the exchanges we have in place and not giving so freely. To really considering the value of what we have to offer compared to that of which is given to us in exchange. Having a good sense of Self-Value and Self-Worth really helps with this. So does understanding what the other person really wants and or needs, along with what they are receptive or not receptive of. Grounding in emotional understanding of others can help us really “feel” for what is the best course of action. Remember that Self-Love and Self-Care is a form of Self-lessness as we take are better able to care for others when we ourselves are doing well. And when we are thriving, we have more more to share!

As we Ground in emotional fulfillment and allow our self-love to reach out and embrace others by loving them, we will be able to nourish not just ourselves, but also our friends, family, community, and the world as a whole.

What Crowns us is not arbitrarily following a traditional or well-tested path and going our own way while trusting our Inner Guidance. Knowing that we know what is best for ourselves, despite of what other people say to us, despite of what the world seems to be saying to us. Our strong Grounding in Emotional Security, Fulfillment and Security allows us to Discern between the myriad options offered in the craziness of life.

The deck I used is the Wooden Tarot, by Andrew Liam Swartz from

Wishing you all a Wonderful new cycle!


Allowing Divine Inspiration to Bring Abundance

Abundance is when we are in sync with the flow of the Universe which brings us what we need and more, nourishing our growth and expansion. It is also something that many people, including myself having some trouble with. So I wanted to do a reading on this and share my insight. I asked about how to be receptive to divine inspiration, how to understand the signs it provides, and then how to allow the flow of abundance to enter our lives. Being in flow is when our actions are aligned with the signs we are given, and also the divine inspiration that moves us forward. Divine inspiration Inspires us with positive, loving feelings, breakthroughs and confidence. Signs are just signals from the Universe that validate our path, they can be as simple as positive feedback from friends, clients, family, or suddenly receiving gifts when we least expect it. Allowing this all to come to us is what I consider the hardest, especially when we are so used to following certain “steps” or “classes” that are supposed to guarantee success and deviating from them can be scary and discouraging.

I liken it to swimming with or parallel to the current of a river instead of against or across/perpendicular to it. We swim with the current, which is our loving partner in life.

Divine InspirationWorld Rx comes from our inner world, it is formed from our thoughts, mindset, feelings, vibration, and spiritual essence. If we are not seeing the results we want in the external world, then it is time to expand and grow within, so that we may connect to Internal Wealth & Abundance. Because our connection to Divine Source is inside of ourselves, not in the external world.
SignsLovers Rx ask us if we are within integrity and harmony with ourselves. If we are able to love and trust ourselves, knowing that we are acting within Integrity, then it is a sign that we are on the right path.
AllowingDeath letting go of all the excessive and superficial things that the Ego is obsessed with holding onto and trusting the Universe to bring us what serves us best. Letting go of the Ego or External identity is like Dying in a sense.

We allow the old shell to die and crumble away so the seed of Abundance we planted can grow. A seed, which we planted within our inner world’s connection to Divine Source and nourished by our Self-Love/Confidence and Integrity. Death of the past Ego, the past Self allows our seed to grow as we move forward.

I also created a Guided Meditation to help us connect to the energy of Golden Prosperity and Abundant Expansion. Where Golden Balanced Prosperity is about being in flow with the Universe so that we have more than enough resources, food, shelter, human & energetic assistance for everything. We can also inspire others with our Prosperity. Excess is different, it is a negative turn that involves the Ego’s attempt to control the flow which leaves us overwhelmed.
My guided meditation encourages us to be in the flow of abundance as it travels through and around us, inspiring all those within our environment.


January 29, 2017 When Inner Laughter is the key to getting through today

January 28, 2017
Laughter can help us through some tough situations. If we can’t outright laugh at the circumstance, we can either laugh at ourselves or laugh inside to lighten the mood.

Oracle Reading for July 3 : Navigating with the Masks we wear while Focusing on goals in order to grow

We wear many masks to hide ourselves as we maneuver through the many realms of the self and our environment ie social scene. Know where and what to stay focussed on. Some answers are not hidden, rather, they are in plain sight and we must have the courage to accept and process them in order to grow.
We center & stabilize ourselves by embracing our power and crown each moment with rationale; as the unseen supports us with visible assistance.
July 4 is Independence Day for the USA! So I cheer on everyone on their own path to Personal Independence! Know that you have the power to change your life! Focus on your question/issue/task, acknowledge what needs to be known in your awareness, and wear masks when you feel the need to do so with investigative work.

Late update, I went to the beach last night to swim in the waves, reconnect, and recent. Self Care is very important, and it may be the solution in plain sight that we are ignoring when we are caught up in everything. Other than working on several business projects and re-organizing my residence i have also fallen back in love with Reading and i’m consuming books with furor!

Here’s a photo of some delicious books i have been going through

And be careful around the Ocean, last night the tide got so high that it swept away my towel while i was swimming, and then while i was on shore, it poured into the parking lot! I have never seen it do that before, but people who’v been going to that beach for longer than me say that it happens sometimes, after the beach area changes shape. I am just thankful that a friendly bystander saved my bag by dragging it away from the tide. My bag did get half soaked but at least it was still there and had not been swept away! Now I am on the search for another oversized towel. I was quite attached to the one that got swept away, it was big and round, perfect for card readings, relaxing around, sitting for meditation, and thick enough to absorb lots of water when needed.


Cleaning Up & Self Care

On March 8 there was a Super New/Dark Moon Solar Eclipse. It was the First of 6 Super Moons in 2016. The New/Dark Moon brings New Beginnings and for new ventures to start, the ones that no longer serve us must be discontinued. It is not only rational but also an emotionally nourishing element of self care. Time to Clean House! Wherein I tidy up the discord and dust away the distractions in order to make way for more purposeful action and more conscious decision making.

Today I vacuumed, cleaned the toilets, swept & mopped the floors, and re-organized some things. I am so relieved to have my house clean again after a month of crazy activity. While cleaning, I though of the cards Clean it Up and Chop Wood from Colette Baron-Reid‘s Wisdom of the Oracle deck.

I like using it to ask for suggestions and lately I keep getting the Fork in the Road card.

I have been fairly confused about this one, as I have been Very active lately: became more public and active about my cartomancy, attended events and workshops on spirituality, consciousness, and divination, started volunteering at local non-profits and did work trade for several businesses and people, changed my business/income career focus, made new personal connections and closed some other. With all my activity, I have been so busy that I felt scattered and could not understand what “fork” or choice(s) this was referring to. When I realized that I needed to regain my power by drawing back into myself. I automatically cut cords, and got to work cleaning house, physically re-organizing my environment, and while undergoing this mundane task, I let my heart and mind slowly settle into each other, to think. Through meditative actions, my mind clears itself by focusing on the Present, the task at hand, the Cleaning of the my house, my living space, my outside, so that within me, the same shall come about.

Self-Care

  • To clean up connections, I find areas [of volunteer work and work trade] which are drawing too much time & energy from me and severe my connection. So there are no contracts & no commitments.
  • To clean up my task list, I physically list and mentally peruse all my dream projects and consider where they are in their state of completion, then I discontinue what is no longer serving me and or what I am Obviously not able to complete.
  • To clean up personal connections, I stop worrying about [un-involved] adults in my life (distant friends, acquaintances & co-workers) and let them take care of themselves. It is not my place to or my job to care for them.
  • To nourish the heart & soul, I make time to engage in activities I enjoy and cook food i love to eat.
  • To fill the heart, I make time to engage in bonding activities with family & friends who love me and whom I love. Together we grow, as our hearts feed each other and nourish the body and soul.

So I have reduced my volunteering and stopped all work trade that was taking too much energy. This gives me more time to focus on business/income related responsibilities and also more time for nourishing the heart and working on my network infrastructure. This may sound cold and technical, but as human beings, we Are social creatures, and thus need social infrastructure to build upon. It is vast, often unseen, and many of us benefit from this without even noticing or appreciating it’s existence. We may think of just co-workers and customers, but much of it involves the unseen work that women(and unappreciated workers) do (title of that post is due to how traditionally, women are given these roles). This extends out into the business world including All service industry employees, working behind the scenes to make sure rooms are cleaned, towels are washed, lawns are cut, trees are trimmed, your food is completed and given to you, and everything is ready to be used so that we can do Our work and make decisions without being distracted by mundanes tasks of the physical realm. As I digress I think of a book called How Starbucks Saved My Life, in which everything was taken away from the author in order for him to realize how much he had to be thankful for.

At the end of the day, when we fulfilled our responsibilities and completed what tasks we could, we settle down and relax, then we think of everything we have, had and want. Then we think of what is in our life, what adds to it, what makes gives us joy, all that is, big and small, and we are Thankful. It is in this moment of gratitude that we can truly appreciate life.

I leave you with a photo of an experimental strawberry bottom cheesecake I made.
