Tarot today – Justice. That moment on vacation when people discover you are a Tarot reader & the line starts forming. I normally don’t like shots of people waving Tarot cards about I was taught it was disrespectful, I’m on holiday I’ll let this one go. Anyhow it’s Justice, she’ll hit me with her karma for sure if I’ve stepped out of line 🙂 Justice is the card of balance, where harmony is restored and clarity achieved. She is the Daughter of the Lord of Truth, of equality and of right prevailing over wrong.
“allow the sword of Justice to mentally cut through to reveal your path”
But Justice is a double-edged sword. Sometimes, life just is not fair, you can lie awake at night, tossing & turning over what might of been, what could have been said. If you know the truth, deep down, you have to wrap that around your heart & let any injustice fade away. If you don’t you will simply drive yourself mad. Karma is the keyword of Justice, keep your side of the road clean & she will reward you with the freedom to manifest your best self.
Go forth & be exceptional today. When circumstance conspires to confuse & distort the truth, allow the sword of Justice to mentally cut through to reveal your path.
Time for a reboot – some time off the grid, time to just remember who I am & where I might want to be next. Today in the midst of some crazy monsoon weatherI started unravelling some disjointed notes that I have made, some talismans I have put together. Starting where it always has with the Fool card I havehad a very productive day of dozing & re-invention. I am currently working on the power of belief, of happiness, of talismans. I meet an awful lot of people who are searching for the rainbow, who believe in unicorns, who live in fear of mercury retrograde. What if you are the pot at the end of your rainbow? What if you are your unicorn? You have the power to just accept whatever planetary configuration you find yourself in & just simply respond as the real you, living your real life? Surely that is the holy grail. My Fool Tarot card featured in this image reconnects you to your spark of existence, the very birth of your consciousness. Are you still on the journey that the Fool revealed to you? You can find all of the meanings of Tarot on my main website & you can purchase your own copy of my Tarot deck from my curiosities shop if the images resonate with you
“the wind blows, the world turns, people are inherently good”
Whatever I have learned as I prepare to immerse myself in this scribbled journey, a million miles away from the crazy metropolis. I need to remember, the wind blows, the world turns, people are inherently good & just want to be the best they can be.
Animal Omens – Really intense dreams lately, some serious lunar lunacy stirring up my subconscious. Asked for some inspiration last night & was rewarded with a fantastic dream sequence of flying like a raven, one of my favourite misunderstood creatures. Such powerful dreams I almost feel inspired to create an animal divination deck, another great idea for the Aries jobs to be done pile 🙂 I love the mocking, croaking call of the raven, often he is associated with loss and ill omen. They are certainly cheeky, I have lost my lunch to a huge glossy one in Sri Lanka who swooped from nowhere. The raven is a chatterbox, a talking bird, its symbolism reflects prophecy and intuition. Ravens often symbolise a link with spirits of those who have passed, connections just beyond the veil.
“listen for messages from your subconscious today, intuition, on the edge of reason.”
On my Seven of Swords the guilty Magpie symbolises underhand methods will be revealed and will leave the seeker feeling spiritually uneasy. The seeker needs to believe 100% in their action, find a different approach to their current challenging situation. When this card appears then the cat is truly out of the bag and we must confront situations head on in order to defuse long-term repercussions. This card warns the only way to gain advantage is through hard work and by truly being the best incarnation of ourselves, perseverance is the only solution. Honesty is always the best policy. The Seven of Swords – go forth, manifest a fabulous time as the best incarnation of your authentic self.
Reading Tarot today I had a realisation. When we are looking to create happiness & abundance – It’s our call – Ultimately we are responsible for our own happiness. Not our parents, lovers, the government or anyone else we can blame for our lot. I believe it is down to us. I love giving readings where you see the questioner blossom & decide to take responsibility for their actions.
“manifest the life YOU know YOU deserve, go forth & be fabulous”
We are ultimately responsible for creating our own reality. The turn of a few painted pasteboards can give us some pointers, it is up to us to manifest the life we know we deserve. Wishing you a truly transformational day, go forth & be fabulous.
TREE OF LIFE TAROT READING
The Tree of Life Tarot reading uses the central diagram of Kabbalah to explore your life path. The almost endless links of these magical symbols never cease to fascinate me, I have used the tree reading for many years. You can try the Tree of Life reading for yourself on my Tarot pages. The featured card in todays spread is the Ten of Cups symbolising contentment & emotional stability. A state of perfection is possible, joy is everywhere, celebrate as never before when the Ten appears. The Tree of Life Spread is the perfect springboard for an accurate psychic Reading & has been used by powerful Clairvoyants & Psychics for generations.
I need to get home. In the madness of my daily life I need to remember to refresh my soul, restore my default setting, remember the baseline of existence that connects me to my true self. This image transports me back to where I spent chunks of my childhood, wandering the alleys of Psychic Glastonbury, visualising my first deck, wondering at the magic of Avalon. I have lived in several places around the world & currently live in London. Though the metropolis can be hugely rewarding & massively inspirational, sometimes I need to fit in time to return home, connect to my roots & recharge my spiritual battery.
“The real you is always waiting, reconnect & restore, don’t get lost in the noise of the daily drama”
My mother passed away a few years ago & I spent a lot of time with her in Glastonbury reminiscing about simpler times. Though she appears on my World card & therefore permeates my thoughts on a daily basis, since she passed on I no longer visit as often as I should & am beginning to realise that home really is an important place in my puzzle.
Appreciate yourself, take a pause, listen to the whispers of your life from long ago. Take time to restore your default setting. The real you is always waiting, reconnect & restore, don’t get lost in the noise of the daily drama.
8 of Cups – Sometimes it’s not your job, sometimes it can’t be fixed, sometimes you need to let it go. What doesn’t serve you on your current journey? What is holding you back?
Finally break through & embrace emotional barriers. Seek out new connections & experience to liberate you from stagnation & propel you to joy. Who have you become, Where are you yet to go? The Eight of Cups tells you to make peace with your situation, make the choice to nourish you, move on from regret
“follow your star from the shadows of the past & burn in to your future with your brightest of lights”
This time of year can be emotionally traumatic for so many people, love yourself today & radiate love to all you encounter. You don’t know the backstory of the person who is bugging you on street, fire them a smile, it might just be the start of a beautiful encounter.
The 8 of Cups, let the past go, follow your star from the shadows of the past & burn in to your future with your brightest of lights.
To all the dreamers & storytellers. Tarot for me is a dance of two souls, I’m preparing to log on to a few spiritual Wi-Fis, put in my few pennies worth as to what path the gorgeous souls that present could possibly take to revitalise their perspective. I have been re-dreaming my journey through the Major Arcana. Last night, The Magician, As above, so below – is the thought I ran through my mind as I drifted off to dreamland, the phrase often associated with the Magician card. When we realise that we cannot extract our best life from our current journey without some external help, we often look to channel power from somewhere else, wherever that may be. Many people refer to this power as God, which of course takes many forms. Some people draw their focus & power from music, running, meditation. There are so many different routes to connect us with the inspiration needed to break out of our comfort zone & take the next step on our journey. One of my mental conduits is the Tarot. When I need to be in the zone, working absolutely at one with my creativity & connecting to my joy I often channel the energy of one of the greater secrets of the Tarot. I have found that I draw great comfort from taking a Tarot journey as I slip in & out of consciousness, the dream journey, where everything is possible.
Everyone’s journey is ultimately no one else’s responsibility. Only you can take the reins of your dreams, embrace the world today, your intention sets your direction. Go forth & be fabulous, have an exceptional weekend.
Embrace your power – shape shift, follow your joy, dodge the naysayers. Appreciate that everything is transient. Blast any negativity or gossip, the moanings of a friend who drives you mad. Anything that doesn’t feed your soul needs attention. Imagine yourself as the alchemist reworking this energy to fuel your spiritual battery.
“Step forward today & nourish you, you are forming your own truths, go forth & be fabulous”
The universe doesn’t want you to wallow in mediocrity, absorb words & thoughts that will serve you on your journey, ignite them with the power of your creativity, step in to your power, your world is waiting.
My Talking Tarot reading, designed to be inspiring & uplifting, continues to receive positive feedback from visitors from around the globe. Paul continuously strives to ensure his live services are fulfilled by expert Psychics & Clairvoyants. Step forward today & nourish you, you are forming your own truths, go forth & be fabulous
‘You are a terribly real thing in a terribly false world, and that, I believe, is why you are in so much pain’. — Emilie Autumn, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls
I was reminded of this quote yesterday & oh how I love it. I gave a couple of readings at the weekend to people who were actively dreading going back to work on Monday & related this quote to them.
“Play the game if you have to, just don’t get scared by the heffalumps & woozles”
The quote reminded me that often people have to play a part in the ‘real’ world that doesn’t necessarily represent their true persona. Today is Monday but it will be over before you know it. Don’t disappear down the rabbit hole, be as true to yourself as you possibly can. Play the game if you have to, just don’t get scared by the heffalumps & woozles
Tarot today – I drew the World – The ultimate card of the Major Arcana, The greatest Secret.
Look at your World, your thoughts & actions. Though they don’t necessarily create our reality, our thoughts & actions definitely have an influence on how we experience our existence.
“life is great, it really doesn’t need to be complicated”
Life is about managing situations whilst being as happy as we can with our current predicament. If happiness depends on the quality of our thoughts, we should strive to be as positive as we can no matter what. Go forth in your world today, make sure you appreciate that life is great, it really doesn’t need to be complicated.
Tarot – Mirror to the subconscious – powerful technology of untold possibilities. Occasionally, sleep eludes me. My favourite technique, developed over a lifetime, is to send my dream self on a Tarot journey. Removing my conscious mind from the responsibility of ‘getting enough sleep’, releasing my body from the terrors of 3am & all the imagined consequences & disasters that will await the exhausted me in the harsh light of day. Last night was such a night.
“You are the Hanged Man”, she whispered
My dream self found himself in a barren landscape confronted by the Tower. Are my foundations unstable, is imminent change or disruption affecting the real me? asked my dream self, what will replace the Tower when the foundations begin to crumble. All of this occurs without the drama & emotion such thoughts stir up in reality & I can drift off, as if in a movie, watching myself as an observer. Next, as often happens I found myself walking through the pillars of black & white, sitting at the feet of the High Priestess as she revealed some hidden mysteries. Sharing some precious secrets previously hidden behind her veil of pomegranates : “You are the Hanged Man“, she whispered & indeed I am I thought. I have been suspended, my perspective is shifting. I have a challenge & the naysayers of my subconscious had been telling me I wasn’t good enough, I was not prepared. What negative messages has your subconscious been slipping in to your mind behind your back? Go on a dream journey & confront those slippery devils, the real you will thank you for it, go forth & be exceptional.
All of us have an internal safe haven, a refuge were we feel completely in tune with mind, body & spirit. It is a delicate balance, a complicated dance through life to stay as close to our authentic self as we are able. To be in the zone where our creativity & wonder reveal to us just what an amazing journey life can be.
“Make a commitment now to reconnect to your magic”
My internal magic is the Tarot, it really is part of my DNA & helps me to understand my existence, enlightening my journey. Everyone has their own magic fuel that validates & empowers them. From musicians to scientists, skaters to young mums, I like nothing better than spending time with people whose enthusiasm & dedication is infectious, whatever their focus happens to be. What is your purpose, the one thing that you would spend all your time doing if all other distractions were removed & money was no object. Make a commitment now to reconnect to your magic, no more excuses, time to feed your soul.
Tarot today Ace of Swords & the Sun. When the aces appear the purest form of energy relating to the element of the suit is present, the Ace of Swords shows purity of thought is what is required. The Crown is a symbol of advancement & success, the branches represent peaceful victory. The sword will swing through the seekers reading, make sure that it connects with the target. The Ace of Swords – The blade is sharp, make sure it cuts in your favour.
“joy can surround you today, blessings materialise, go forth & be thankful”
When the Sun burns through your reading Be sure to relax your mind & exercise your body. You have now moved through the barriers, you project happiness unconsciously, now you project confidence and ability. Embrace any encounters you have at this time, a new important phase of development is waiting to be revealed. Your inner child now comes out to play. Enjoy yourself & revel in your individuality, break free from conformity. Luminous joy can surround you today, blessings materialise, go forth & be thankful.
Tarot today our old friend the Devil, Satan, Lucifer, Beelzebub. I’ll admit, on my endless journey through the greater secrets, The Major Arcana, the Devil is my Achilles heel. As an Aries Horse, obsessive creative Celtic – to use just some of my enabling excuses, I have to be careful to keep my temper under control. A LOT of internal chanting goes on. I very rarely ‘lose my temper’, I can’t afford the repercussions any more, I have too many previous pressure cooker moments that still come back to haunt me on a daily basis. It can be the simplest thing, though usually it is frustration that causes me to want to throw all of my toys out of the pram. Fortunately if I do ever go off these days it is very short lived, I find it easy now to disperse the energy & channel it somewhere more constructive. A creative escape I am finding useful at the moment is the escape to your happy place visualisation.
“Freeze frame any frustrations, then just drift off, your fantasies are waiting”
The happy place, where all of your dreams & fantasies are allowed to roam free, where all of your imaginings live. Everything is possible, people & situations that are troublesome are easily defeated & you are the superhero, the pop star absorbing the adulation as the pyrotechnics close the show. Your happy place can be somewhere you have already been, where you reconnected to your true self, felt completely alive. Does that ring any bells in your subconscious? – Have you been to such a place? It can also be somewhere you have only ever dreamed of, somewhere at the edges of your imagination. Take a moment to escape to your happy place now, you have the power to transport there whenever you need. Freeze frame any frustrations, then just drift off, your fantasies are waiting.
On a daily basis I have talismans & religious artefacts all about my person as a protective shield & to ‘amplify my powers’. In a challenging business meeting yesterday I was turning a lump of moldavite around in my fingers. Moldavite is one of my big guns, my own personal kryptonite that called to me in the alleyways of Glastonbury on a visit home many years ago. I wear a buddha from Kamakura at all times. I’m taken to carrying a daily Tarot card, a crucifix, a vintage key, a rosary, any other charm or amulet picked up on my journey through life so far. Combined with the several incantations, chants & prayers that power me. Even perhaps a herb or potion to protect me internally as my path unfolds. I use vintage Tarot & Cartomancy decks occasionally, people often comment: ‘Wow those cards are so powerful!”. The truth is they are just a collection of painted pasteboard.
“You do realise you are strong enough on your own. The power is you”
When you strip away all of the talismans, magical chants and lucky charms, you are left naked, just you against the world. What crutches, totems or prayers are defending you today? You do realise you are strong enough on your own. The power is you, be your own talisman, go forth & be extraordinary.
Secrets hiding in the shadows hold the potential to bathe you in the brightest of lights. I have been revisiting the 3 of Swords. The extraordinary reactions this card can evoke in a sitter is one of the most powerful responses you will experience as a reader. The powerfully graphic image of the heart pierced by the 3 swords, the brooding storm.
“Look out for the shadows today, greet them like an old friend, then pull them further in to the light.”
Many people have a strong emotional memory of literally having their heart broken, the deep seated feelings of relationships failing, possibly conflict. Perhaps even memories of someone betraying our trust These memories can shake us at soul level. Many times I see a sitter who holds such experiences in their psychic memory who is unable to escape this loop of experience. The original memory is so powerful that it is able to overwhelm & disorientate many years after the original event. This is where facing your shadows can be so cathartic and truly set you free. This is where working through your emotional memory bank releases & nourishes you, enabling you to grow and flourish. Look out for the shadows today, greet them like an old friend, then pull them further in to the light. It may be uncomfortable, then their power will diminish & strengthen you in ways you never thought possible. Be a wi-fi beacon of love today, go forth & be exceptional.
While most boys dreamt of being James Bond, my childhood fantasy was to become Solitaire the Clairvoyant from the James Bond Movie, Live & Let Die. Unfortunately that position had already been filled by the fabulous Jane Seymour. One of my oldest & dearest friends calls me Solitaire & is prone to calling me up & saying ‘He travels by water!’ or similar in a breathy voice. I could easily carry off Solitaire’s headdress, I’m not Solitaire, unfortunately. However, I have achieved many of my dreams including designing my own Tarot deck & traveling, giving readings (and living), around the globe, experiencing many different cultures.
“it’s the only chance you’ll ever get to see this day, don’t allow it to slip by”
Reignite a dream, give yourself permission to reinvent your future. Unleash that childish fantasy existence where everything was possible & January credit card bills were not even on your radar. Years ago you tucked your childhood dreams away for safe keeping. It doesn’t mean they’re not still there, bubbling & intensifying in your subconscious. Your dreams may have changed, or you may still want the same things you did when you were a kid, it doesn’t matter. Bring your dream back to life and into the light. Ask yourself what you would do with your life if money and time were no object; what you would do if failure were not possible? As you start to imagine your dream life, your adult brain will try to impose limitations, put objections, practical issues, in the way. Remind yourself this is only a dream, and practicalities are not important. It’s OK to start with small dreams, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll start to unleash your imagination, and those dreams will grow again. Many people have said my free talking Tarot has sparked many memories & thought processes, try my free spoken Tarot readings here
Yesterday was a struggle for me, as I went to sleep I pre-dreamed how much better I could make today. Go forth & grab today & enjoy it, it’s the only chance you’ll ever get to see this day, don’t allow it to slip by.
Darkness or light, the eternal battle. The internal conversations we have take front & centre in our consciousness, an almost constant dialogue. How we react & what energy we decide to project in to our world is very telling to where we are on our journey. We can choose to empower our inner warrior to fight any internal doubt or negativity. We can make a conscious choice to shift gears, laugh at our struggles & embrace the magic. Feeding the sparks of enthusiasm is a skill that we can learn & nourish. It is a full time job that we really should make a priority as our thoughts really do create our reality. Obviously we can’t always be floating on a pink cloud, sailing through life in a blaze of smiles. We can however make the choice to suit up, show up & bring our ‘A’ game.
Block the inner ogre today, mentally cut it off at the pass. Escape the dark, go forth and choose to step in to the light, your world will be a happier place.
Very occasionally I am asked to delve deep in to my history & give the type of readings my mother was fond of giving, and receiving. Our favourite reader was the famous west country mystic Madame Tamar who started me on my Tarot obsession many decades ago. Madame Tamar mostly used normal playing cards, she told me Tarot cards were too scary for her clientele. She was so gifted I don’t think she needed any oracle at all.
“She would always carefully send you on your way with a spring in your step, a sparkle in her Scorpio eyes”
I am fortunate enough to have inherited my mother’s paraphernalia, her crystal ball, cartomancy cards. I still collect vintage cartomancy decks, I love the interpretations. If appropriate I will sometimes give readings, usually at functions, that dip in to that persona. The type of gypsy reading that promises tall dark strangers, exciting journeys. I stop short of the slightly darker messages my mother was fond of delivering. Exciting affairs, disastrous consequences. Looking back it has to said she was mostly right & had absolutely no qualms saying it exactly as she saw it. She would always carefully send you on your way with a spring in your step, a sparkle in her Scorpio eyes. I don’t believe that this type of reading undermines the true Tarot experience as long as you are clear in your intentions. They are primarily for entertainment, parties & events, they form some of the rich history of the contemporary cartomancers art.
Whatever story you decide to believe today, make sure you send yourself a positive message, though perhaps a tall dark stranger might be fun this wintry morning?
The stories we tell ourselves. What do we believe, where does this information arise, just how much does it have to do with who & where we really are on our path. Often, when half asleep, I look at my life remotely, like a movie. Then first thing, every day, through the lens of Tarot. I have been wandering through the Major Arcana for the umpteenth time. These archetypes represent pretty large character / life experiences, for me ( Disclaimer : other belief systems are available!) they are a reliable mirror that always reflects where my head is at. I have been challenging my stock reactions to the archetypes whilst looking back over old notebooks to see how my perception of my life has shifted, how my story has developed. The stories that you tell yourself are the script to your life. You are the author, the stories you tell yourself can often dictate how your reality manifests. Changing the story is the most empowering thing you can do to break through blocks to empower your future.
As I write this it’s early Monday. Mondays used to be a big one for me, signalling the end of the weekend & putting me back on the treadmill. Now Mondays are one of the highlights of my week, I have rewritten the Monday script & built in several aspects I genuinely look forward to. Even though it’s black & cold outside I am going to climb on my bike & give this Monday a run for it’s money.
Rewrite your script today, take a small step to changing your story. You can’t change the chapters that have gone, you can however always write a better ending. You are the person of your own creation today, the version of you you have been waiting to meet your whole life. Go forth & be wonderful
What is reality? A quick google reveals: ‘the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them. “he refuses to face reality”
When you give readings you are focusing on a snapshot of time, of myriad possibilities that could arrive. You are there to enthuse & inspire. It is a great responsibility.
Your words can set someone free or they can scare. It should also be a magical unforgettable experience. The sitter should leave feeling optimistic & fired up for the future.
A tarot reading can touch someone’s soul. It is a dance between two spirits. If you give readings you have to be very careful as words have great power, can linger & be reinterpreted by the sitter later through their own lens on reality. When you interact with a sitter you may be forging a new dimension of communication with that person who may be opening up in a way they never have before… This time of year after the excitement & promise of the new year can throw up some dark shadows. I hope you are feeling strong & ready 🙂
Whatever your reality is today go forth & be fabulous.
Abundance. Most questioners when they ask about ‘abundance’ mean wealth, physical moolah, money. Almost all of those questioners have a distorted view of worth, money, the sordid topic of coin. Usually their attachment to ‘wealth’ is based on something someone else has planted in their head. I’m from a poor-ish background. My mother & father worked like dogs all their lives. I remember clearly their attitude to wealth, they had an ingrained poverty consciousness. ‘We can’t go there, we are not that type of person’. ‘You can’t do / buy that, who do you think you are? Rockafella!’ My father died leaving just enough money hidden around the house for his funeral, he would have been happy, that’s all he ever wanted. The truth is physical ‘wealth’ is a construct. You can always get more money. You can never buy more health, you can never buy confidence, creativity. The real wealth is when you realise that striving for emotional or spiritual abundance is worth far more than cold hard cash. We are all time poor, the clock is always ticking. Strive to spend more time breathing, with who you love. Subconsciously start processing your creativity to bring enough physical wealth to free you from the daily grind
Go forth & be magnetic today, attract everything you need effortlessly, enjoy your day & breathe
Tarot today – Devil – My inner devil is a miserable bastard. Every year when I stop for the holidays I get a man flu system shut down where I am forced to face my miserable self & reflect on where I am, and where I’m going. The strange no mans land after the ‘big day’ (other celebrations are available) & New Years Eve where we magically forgive all our wrongs & emerge as the shiny perfect version of ourselves in a flurry of resolutions. Today my snot fuelled inner devil wants to tell me what a useless failure I am. Example: I should be at the gym not drowning in a sea of hot lemon paracetamol based drinks. Well, inner devil you horny little goat, it’s time to fight back. I AM usually in the gym most days sorting out my head to stop me biting people on the tube & keeping the parts moving, including those that have been replaced. When I look back on this year I HAVE accomplished quite a few items of my to do list. I’m still failing of course, I just went through my Apple account & cancelled subscriptions to apps I never knew existed. I have been paying £2.50 a week for a talking Spanish translator for all those times I’m stuck in a lift with a troubled Spanish person. The truth is I’m doing OK, no actually I’m doing fine. We are conditioned to be so full of self judgement & comparisons of where we should be, who we should be, we forget to stop & appreciate ourselves. Except when we have man flu & can’t move too much.
Take a moment to appreciate how OK you are. Stifle that inner devil, the ever present voice that tells you otherwise. Allow yourself right now to take 30 seconds & feel some ‘OK’ flood your body & mind.
“The truth is I’m doing OK, no actually I’m doing fine”
Allow yourself to be happy. Nothing externally can make you happy, it is down to you. Flick that switch & make the choice. Today I will do the best I can & be happy, I am blessed.
B R E A T H E – As we enter that no man’s land of the holiday period I truly hope you find time to re-connect to what is truly important. Family, friends, love, health. For me it is often just the opportunity to be me, off the clock, no agenda. I hope this holiday gives you the space to remember who you are, to rediscover your inner child. A chance to re-assess, to re-ignite your dreams. Moving towards the promise of the New Year I hope that you shatter every self limiting belief about who you are, who you can become. May your life glow with adventures not yet even imagined. Follow your star from the shadows of the past & burn with your brightest of lights.
Fragmented – Yesterday I gave some readings. Boy people were frazzled – One lady in particular (turns to she was a Gemini, some people would say dual personality already 🙂 Was so fragmented I didn’t need a Tarot deck, I needed a shot of valium. She was a donkey on the edge. Fragmentation is so common place now. You have the ‘social you’, the image you project on the socials. Then you have the different hats you wear. For her it was wife, mother, teacher, daughter, sister, therapist, taxi-driver, the list was endless. I don’t discuss readings, however, The Seven of Cups with it’s choices, dreams & illusions resonated perfectly with the poor woman before me. The older & grumpier I get the happier I become in my skin. Whatever part you are playing as you go through life, remember the part you were born to play. The real you, behind all of the layers.
“you are a true star, take a bow”
I hope today you can go forth & give an exceptional performance. Remember there is only one audience that really matters & that is you, your biggest critic. Chill out & give yourself a five star review.
Take off the mask, turn off the spotlight, you are a true star, take a bow.
Tarot today – Karma – Here come the avalanche of “This year has got to be better” New Years Resolutions. What have you added or taken away from the recipe to receive a different cake next year?
“Karma doesn’t have a menu, you get served what you deserve”
As the saying goes, Karma doesn’t have a menu, you get served what you deserve. Process the past by manifesting a brighter future. Everything you put out, will come back. Make sure they are the ingredients to the cake you want to be eating next year.
These are exciting times, go forth & be spectacular my pretty
Renew – I was at a party last night. An end of year party. My invisible protection cloak was set to full & I still came away frazzled. This has been a hell of a year for us all, on so many levels. If like me in this image you feel disconnected, fragmented even, now is the time to repair & renew. As we approach the Winter Solstice it is a time of recounting stories of the year ( often involving ale & crying!), preparing for the dark months ahead. Renewing & re-energising as we prepare for the promise of the New Year. Giving presents & counting our blessings with the ones we hold dear.
The end of year party is not a new thing, it has been happening for millenia.
Release the past, live the now & prepare to manifest the brightest of futures.
Go forth & be fabulous today, no matter how hungover you are!
“Release the past, live the now & prepare to manifest the brightest of futures”

Have great day, yesterday is done & dusted, tomorrow is a fantasy. Grab today & shake it. it’s the only time you’ll ever see this day, make it count.
Tarot thought for today – Evolve – I’m really enjoying investigating this idea, re-invention. If you always respond in the same way, you always get the same result. Sometimes it’s you or your point of view that needs to change. It’s easy to go through life bouncing from bumper sticker to pinterest affirmation, avoiding everything & trusting to the universe. Life will still be waiting.
“pull up your big girl pants & face the music”
One day you will have to pull up your big girl pants & face the music, it can be so cathartic & freeing. I have had an incredibly challenging 2018, on many levels. Not ‘mercury retrograde’ stuff, real, hard life stuff. I believe the trick is, don’t bleat on about it & learn from the lesson, get amongst it & grab everything life has to offer.
Wishing you a magical weekend, go forth & be fabulous!

I get asked all the time ‘How do I learn Tarot’. My opinion, & only my opinion, throw away the little white book. Find resources that do interest you & exhaust them, thankfully I’m an obsessive so no worries there. Listen to people, actually listen to them. You don’t have to like them, you do have to get in to their headspace & make a connection. Finally trust your gut instincts. If Tarot finds you, have the respect to voice what is being revealed through you. I’m sorry to say if you aren’t destined to be a reader, no amount of study & waving Tarot cards about mysteriously is gonna cut it. Go find something that you are good at.
” You don’t have to like them, you do have to get in to their headspace”
On this image are my 22 Majors, I stepped in to each card as I created them & they still surprise me as I give readings every day. If you haven’t take a couple minutes to choose your card in my talking reading, do it, link here: Free Talking Video Tarot
Have great day, yesterday is done & dusted, tomorrow is a fantasy. Grab today & shake it. it’s the only time you’ll ever see this day, make it count.
Every story ever told, every secret ever revealed lives within the Tarot, the book with no pages. This amazing oracle has the power to reveal mysteries of the past & present, to unlock the secrets of your future. Every day I live for the excitement of turning those keys, watching the painted images come to life before me, embracing the subliminal symbols, unravelling the subconscious through the dance of Tarot.
What secrets does the tarot hold for you? In readings it is the secrets that the questioner is keeping from themselves that are usually the most revealing.
Tarot is the most powerful technology of untold possibilities, the book with no pages
” the most powerful technology of untold possibilities, the book with no pages”
Tarot today – White Rabbit – “The hurrier I go, The behinder I get.” – Time to let go. When circumstances conspire to make life seem impossible I always reflect on my old friend the White Rabbit from my favourite vintage Alice deck. He is always nervous & in a hurry. I find these two states generally arrive together, never manifesting the best outcome. The older I get the more it becomes apparent that, mostly, what will be will be.
If I’m not prepared it’s usually better to sit this one out & say as little as possible.
” Be proud of who you are, be brave enough to take the different path”
It is never too late to reinvent who you are & how you react to the crazy ride that is simply just ‘being alive’. There’s no time restraint on striving to become the best you that you can be. Accept your mistakes, celebrate your victories. Be proud of who you are, be brave enough to take the different path.
Start anew on the journey to becoming the person you always new you could become.
The message image shown on this card is your message, you were given it as you took your first breath. When will you deliver on that message?
Tarot is my thing. The symbol on the right, (in my opinion), is the essence of Tarot. When I encountered it for the first time, decades ago, I knew I had found my key. The secret to unravelling my purpose.
Many people are so frustrated by struggling through the day to day, they have forgotten who they are. They have vague memories of who they were & have a million ideas of who
” Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” Lucille Ball
Before you were you, here, where were you? Who are you now? What is your purpose?
Reconnect to who you truly are – Deep down you remember your message, if only you will allow yourself to hear it.
Go forth & be exceptional today, make today the day that someone will remember your message.
Tarot today – Six of Swords – On my Six of Swords card, shadowy figures drift from turbulent waters into safer currents. Brightness breaks through cloudy sky and a Castle indicating safe haven can be glimpsed in the distance. I usually post very early in the morning & pull the card that I am focusing on, if I am focusing on a card. Then I lay on a couch in contemplation while I wait for the rest of my world to catch up. I drift off into the imagery of the card. Many of the images in this deck were created between 20 & 30 years ago, so the layers of meditation around them deepens & wraps itself around me like a favourite blanket. The essence that forms in my consciousness for this card today is : ‘escape’. Wherever the vessel drifts & whatever stories you tell yourself you may be able to escape circumstances, people, places or any other interaction or distraction that drifts your way. The one thing you will never escape is yourself.
“wherever the boat drifts, be sure to leave the very best impression of your spirit that you can”
A favourite quote of mine, again no one is really sure who said it is ‘They May Forget What You Said, But They Will Never Forget How You Made Them Feel’
Make peace with yourself today, wherever the boat drifts, be sure to leave the very best impression of your spirit that you can.
#omaratarot This week I’ve been thinking about time. We all have a limited resource of time during our current existence, we really need to spend more of it scrolling through social media. BAM! if you’ve read this far I’m not having a go, I’m as bad as anyone, my phone reports to me every week what a waster I am.
Many people who have readings are focusing on the ants, not the elephants. Quite often someone sits in front of me & blithers on about some guy they are obsessed with. I nod sagely & make a few comments here & there, there’s no point in saying “Why bother you won’t be together in 3 months” They won’t want to hear it, sometimes they can’t hear it.
We all have a limited amount of time. I saw the Bohemian Rhapsody movie recently, I enjoyed it even though I think it had little to do with the truth.
I met Freddie a couple of times on nights out. His time was cut short, as was many of my friends time around that period in history. The technology is now here to stop that happening. What might Freddie have done had he not been taken so young?
You think you have time, you don’t. What is your purpose? What do you really want to get done before your personal countdown expires. You know deep inside, you really do. You will put it off until ‘it is the right time’, ‘its christmas’, ‘works crazy’, ‘I have no time’ Make some time, get up an hour earlier, stop watching trash tv.
That time is now. Do me a favour, stop scrolling, take a deep breath & treat yourself to five minutes of thinking about what you really want to do
I like to give credit where credit’s due, I’m not 100% sure where the quote I used came from. A lot of sources say ‘Buddha’ but I’m not totally sure, if you are then please let me know.
Tarot Today – One of my favourite vintage cards – The Key. I love this card, I could stare at it for hours. If only we could all find the magic key that would unlock our perfect life. What this means to me is being able to unlock whatever it is internally that makes us feel complete. No external force can do that for you. Love, Money anything you can name will not make you happy, it must come from inside.
I had a ( one sided! ) heated debate with someone yesterday about me being a psychic. I said “I don’t identify as a psychic, lots of my friends do, & that’s fine. I see myself as a Cartomancer, literally a card reader if you want to go & have a look at wikipedia”He completely ignored what I said & continued to wind himself up until we parted ways. For all I know he is still going on.
I got on my bike, came home & continued to happily play with my pretty cards.
Be who you are today, try not to be labelled. Unless you want to label yourself of course. Connect to that part of you that makes you truly happy, that is really all we can do.
A figure turns from Eight stacked Cups. Behind the Cups a river needs to be crossed, the moon pulls at the emotions. What situation or behaviour is no longer in your best interest.
Change can be unsettling, walking away is often the bravest thing we have ever done.
Walking away from a job or relationship that we know is not nourishing our soul. Sometimes we continue out of some misguided fantasy that things will improve, even though every fibre in our being tells us nothing ever will.
Walking away from an outmoded version of ourselves, realising that we are no longer the person we thought we were.
Releasing a repetitive habit, thought process or behaviour that always ends making us feel less than, unworthy, trapped.
Walking away is the most cathartic thing we can do, to unleash a new phase of our existence.
“Don’t settle for a half life, you are worth more than that”
Are you feeling stuck today, is there something that deep down you know isn’t taking you where you want to be?
Be brave, release yourself. If your Spider-sense is tingling remember the Universe really does have your back, you owe it to yourself to choose your path to happiness. Don’t settle for a half life, you are worth more than that.
One of the greatest lessons I have learnt is to put the world on pause. To exist just in that second & give myself a little kindness.
I’m a big fan of meditation & hypnosis. Being able to focus, be awake & pay attention to the moment.
When I give readings, it’s not about me, it’s about the sitter. Where they are & where they might be going.
Often I will be on such a different frequency it is difficult to get the questioner to even focus on what is happening. They are on to the next thing before I have even finished a sentence. In just the last few years this phenomena has sped up dramatically. Often when people land in front of me they are SO stressed, I wonder if they are about to burst in to tears.
“I actively monitor my thoughts, watch them move around my head, talk to them “Hello Stress, thanks for popping by””
My daily stress busting checklist:
Is the stress mine? Or am I being a stress Vampire & feeding off someone elses energy?
I consciously notice how I ACTUALLY feel in the moment, pay attention to where I am & what I’m doing. Stop to smell the roses
Put in daily me time. Even 5 minutes, every day to just sit with my thoughts
Physically change my outlook – Choose a different seat on the bus
I actively monitor my thoughts, watch them move around my head, talk to them “Hello Stress, thanks for popping by”
Listen to some relaxing audio, hypnosis or meditation
How do you cope with feeling overwhelmed, I would love to know
Tarot is ‘in fashion’ at the moment. That is all well & good, I have a degree in fashion, it is no surprise that the rich imagery & spooky aesthetic is ‘in Vogue’. What is really interesting is that a younger generation are drawn to the Tarot & increasingly ask me to portray a spooky character when giving readings, especially around Halloween. I like it & it is completely in keeping with the darker side of the human experience. As long as the reading is authentic I have no problem & don’t think it in anyway belittles the Tarot ritual.
“The younger clientele are looking for a more authentic experience. Unicorns & ‘Love & Light’ simply doesn’t cut it for them”
What is becoming obvious is that young people are increasingly disenfranchised with the upside down world we currently inhabit. Seeking solace in ancient wisdom makes perfect sense & I am finding it extremely cathartic to give readings ‘for a bit of fun’ that ultimately, through the inherent power of the Tarot experience, end up being truly inspiring & motivating for the sitter & myself.
The younger clientele are looking for a more authentic experience. Unicorns & ‘Love & Light’ simply doesn’t cut it for them & they challenge & excite me as a Tarot consultant, pushing my buttons & forcing me to up my game.
Have you tried my talking readings? My popular free Tarot Readings online have been getting great feedback, I am so happy with the response & engagement. Younger people especially have told me that the readings helped them feel relaxed, confident & positive about the future. Exactly the feelings I was trying to evoke when I visualised the readings based on many hundreds of face to face readings throughout my life. Find the link below & let me know what you think, I would truly love to know …
The Major Arcana – The Greatest Secrets. Whatever hand we are dealt, we either accept the deal & play to win. Or throw in our hand & give up before we have even participated in the game.
Life is a game of cards, how will you proceed with the hand you have been dealt today?
I personally have been dealt some rough cards, some of the roughest in fact. I’m not about to tell you details, go all ‘X Factor’ sob story on your ass. I just turn over my cards & play my best hand. I’m lucky to have Tarot as my obsession. To help me unravel the confusion & unlock the secrets to creating happiness for myself & those around me.

As light workers we are all about connectivity, working as one force for good. Someone on my FB yesterday reconnected through my talking Tarot & has had a real shift through a reading I did last year. They are doing absolutely great. That literally fills me to bursting with joy.
“let it go, roll with the punches, hit the dealer for another card & ace everything that life throws your way”

Do you get waves of feeling powerless? Almost hopeless? If you have, & I know you have, there’s no reason to feel anxious. We have all felt that way! One of the default settings of the human condition is to feel occasionally unnerved. Sensitive people & people who have opened up to a spiritual quest tend to feel things more deeply. When you begin to feel at soul level, true honesty with yourself, people & places & things will rise up & make you feel challenged. There is only one way to get rid of that feeling: to realise that your only power is within you & begin to nurture that energy & harness that power. When you realise the strength of your inner power- and learn how to harness it- you will be invincible. Here are some tips on how to harness your inner power:
Realise your body is just a vessel
It can be hard to separate your body from your soul. You use your body to do things every day, from making the bed to going for a jog. However, the reality is that you are not your body. Your body is simply a vessel. It’s what’s in your body that matters- your soul. When you accept that your body is just a vessel, you can learn how to harness your inner power. Your inner power and your soul are intrinsically linked and when you can connect to one, you can connect with the other. I believe that each of us needs some tools to unlock our true potential. Undoubtedly the keys that have unlocked my destiny, my reality are embedded in The Tarot. I believe The Tarot is the most powerful technology of untold possibilities. Every story ever conceived can be played out in a Tarot spread, it is up to us to manifest it as our reality.
TrulyBelieve in the power of your mind
If you want to harness your inner power, you need to believe in the power of your mind. Your mind is immensely powerful. The saying mind over matter is absolutely true. We give way too much power to our body, when in reality, it’s not what controls us. When you can believe in the power of your mind, you can use that to connect with your own inner power.
Stop getting in your own way
One of the biggest roadblocks to harnessing your inner power is you! It’s easy to doubt our inner power because it’s intangible. What we can’t see is hard to believe in. However, our inner power isn’t Santa Clause or The Easter Bunny. Your inner power is real and it can help you do incredible things. But you need to stop getting in your own way! Trust your gut, believe in your inner power and stop doubting yourself!
Quiet the outside noise
Meditation can improve our natural instincts. However, it’s hard to hear your inner voice when there is so much outside noise. If you want to connect to your inner power, you’ll need to hear what it’s saying. Be sure to get enough quiet time in your day so you can harness your inner power. Buddhist relate to this as ‘the thousand things’, the myriad distractions we face on a daily basis to keep us from our true path. I find chanting is an amazing tool to focus my mind, have you ever tried it? Give a listen to the buddhist chants here, they may be the frequencies you need to quiet you mind & focus your intentions.
There is no feeling better than harnessing your inner power. When you realise the strength that you possess within yourself, it can completely change your outlook on life. No longer will your nosy coworker make your blood boil, nor will arriving late to a meeting feel like the end of the world. The only power that you will ever need is within you, connect to it now.
Do you feel stuck in a boring routine? If so, it’s time to start manifesting the life of your dreams. We all have a dream life that we wish could be our reality. Oftentimes, it seems so out of reach that we never even try to achieve that lifestyle. However, you can live the life of your dreams- if you know how to manifest it. It really can be much closer than you think. Here are some tips: Use “I am” The way we speak about something can have a profound effect on our mindset and our fate. We all have a different version of the life of our dreams. Maybe it’s retiring early and traveling Europe or maybe it’s opening a life-saving non-profit organisation. Whatever your dream life is, begin speaking about it as though it’s already your reality. Instead of saying “I will visit Europe,” say “When I reach Europe.” This simple shift in wording can begin to manifest your reality much faster as your subconscious continually prepares to realise your thoughts . Say your dreams out loud If you keep your dreams in your mind, they will always be just that – dreams. When you begin speaking about the life of your dreams, you are informing the universe of your desires. You need the universe to be on your side if you want the life of your dreams to manifest. Begin saying your dreams out loud- even if it seems silly at first. Guided visualisations & hypnosis are fantastic tools & techniques I use regularly to expand my horizons. Meditate and visualise Meditation and visualisation can help improve every area of your life. Whenever you want something bad enough, you should visualise it and spend some time every day just focusing on that image. What you visualise will eventually manifest. When you picture something in your mind that you really want, it sends signals to your brain, which will then subconsciously lead you towards your desires. Ask your higher power To get the life of your dreams, you need to ask those with the power to give it to you. Whether you believe in the universe, spirits, or another form of higher power- it’s time to ask them for what you want most. Let your heart lead you The battle between following your heart versus your head is a constant battle. You may not always get it right, but it’s important that you try. The life of your dreams is a heart issue. If you let your brain decide, it would only choose what was logical- not what you really wanted. Always follow your heart. Surround yourself with support Manifesting the life of your dreams isn’t a one person job. It takes love, support and encouragement for us to finally have the life that we’ve always dreamt of. Cut off anyone in your life that stops you from pursuing your dreams. Only spend time with people who believe in you and support your dreams. Be open to fate The sad reality is that what you want the most may not be what’s best for you. When attempting to manifest the life of your dreams, remember to always be open to change. Oftentimes we think we know what we want and what will be best for us, but what we think would be best often really isn’t. The universe always knows best. Trust its infinite wisdom. Manifesting the life of your dreams may take some time, but it will be well worth it. If you could live your perfect life, wouldn’t you be willing to put in some hard work? If you’re serious about manifesting the life of your dreams, stop wasting time and get started today! Follow our tips above and you’ll be living your dream life in no time! Finally make time to delegate, I am the worst person to recommend this as I constantly try to manage everything myself. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day. Sometimes you have to accept that someone else may just be better at the task in hand, you can’t be an expert in everything!

What is your divine purpose? Why is the world a better place for having you in it? If money was no option & you could spend your days in pursuit of one thing, what would that be?
These are the questions we must ask ourselves when we are asking what our true purpose is. Many readings that I have given recently focus on the dissatisfaction that so many people are feeling at the moment. “I just feel that I am freewheeling with no true direction or purpose”, “One week blends in to the next, am I here just to pay my rent”, “I have been on SO many dates recently, none of them have even come close to making me think that I am even close to finding ‘the one’”.
The above are genuine statements that people have made to me recently. I really believe that there is a universal shift occurring that is forcing everyone to truly question their existence. If how you earn your living is becoming unbearable, every day is becoming a chore & you are living purely for the weekend, you owe yourself to shake things up & strive to connect to your soul purpose & begin to live the satisfying, fulfilling existence you know you deserve. For independent advice from one of my expert psychic readers many different inspiring psychic readings are available across these pages. Sometimes another point of view is the catalyst you need to reignite your enthusiasm.
What are your unique gifts & super powers? What is it that makes you happy, & ultimately makes those around you happy? I have known from a very early age that Tarot is my destiny. That I am here to give readings that inspire people to see differently & break out of self limiting patterns of belief. I also know that I am extremely gifted in the graphic arena, without sounding big headed those talents were my career for many years & gave me a good living. Now I have realised that I can combine my visual skills with my Tarot calling & my interest in social media which is why I express myself visually through the medium of instagram among other channels. I love the fact that I can create something & it can take on a life of it’s own around the globe. I love the fact that social is so instantaneous. It fascinates me that my insta journey has grown & developed & continues to evolve as a conduit for my Tarot deck & the free Tarot readings embedded on my own site. Every day I am inspired by the visual imagery that flows through my social channels & even as I tap this I am inspired to develop more & expand in to ever more exciting channels. If you want to connect to me on social look for the buttons on my site, I am most active on Instagram, you can find me here #tarot on instagram
Who must you fearlessly become?
Who have you been when you have been at your best? Think back now to a time when you were genuinely ‘in the flow’, feeling creative & just doing or creating something simply because it made you happy or made you feel fulfilled. What was that, how can you return to that joyful state that simply made you happy to be alive. The secret to life is if you can take that state of joyous creation & mould it to become the way you make your living, you have truly cracked it, you will never feel like you are simply doing a job for the sake of it.
Who must you fearlessly become? Deep down your soul knows the person you are destined to be. You have all the skills necessary, what is it that is holding you back?
When I am giving a reading for someone who feels that their life has lost direction, that they have lost their reason for being, I like to take them on a journey through the Major Arcana. Each card has many meanings but in regards to this question there is generally one meaning that is relevant, that can be focused on to unlock the direction & potential that is missing in the questioners life.
I intend to start a series on each Major Arcana that reveals which of the secrets can help someone who is struggling to find their true direction, so please check back.
For now you can take a wander along the Royal Road of Tarot by visiting my Tarot pages, focus on the Majors. Each Major Arcana Tarot or greater Secret has a life changing power, Your divine purpose is in there. Focus now & discover Your destiny, what are you waiting for?
Social media – Fake News?, it feels more & more that we are struggling to be ‘on’ & know everything, be everywhere 24/7. I think this is actually making people feel more isolated & disconnected from their reality. Only today I saw someone have a very real & very loud public breakdown on a train in central London. There were 2 reactions to this poor person reaching the end of their tether, the first was people trying to act like nothing was happening, burying themselves deeper in their own alienated world of headphones, newspapers & mobile swiping. Even more alarming were the other individuals who started videoing the poor person who was having a breakdown. Admittedly the individual was very vocal & confrontational, but I didn’t see anyone actually try & help or try & inform someone who possibly could. I couldn’t as it was my stop & god forbid I miss that for the sake of trying to help someone in obvious distress. I berated myself after, perhaps I should have at least tried to engage the person?, although with all the ‘horror stories’ maybe it is indeed best to turn up your headphones & pretend that nothing is happening.
Out of Control?
The loneliness & anger that is tangible even in central London seems to be fuelled by our fast paced society, by feeling out of control. That unbelievable decisions are being made over which we as individuals have no influence.
I truly believe that it is becoming more difficult for us to affect outcomes & that people are suffering crippling insecurity as a result. The only power we really have is how we react to the unfolding events around us, our emotional response to the world as we experience it is the only aspect truly under our control.
I know I am extremely fortunate as all of my life I have had the Tarot as my benchmark, as my touchpoint for all my experience. The universe seems to be hurtling ever faster, changing at an alarming rate. Signals coming at us from literally all directions, bombarding our senses. Someone I was reading for actually said to me the other day that they were disappointed in themselves as they had not been able to keep up with their friends Instagram stories. I had to process that for a minute, they were disappointed because they hadn’t been able to keep up with their ‘friends’ heavily filtered & curated versions of their lives. I felt quite saddened, when was the last time they actually connected with any of these friends outside of the lenses of social media I wondered.
Without sounding like an old fool, when I was young the world was genuinely a much slower place. Change took time & was a gentle progression. Now change is instantaneous & brutal, requiring instant reactions & endless comments on social media. Some people are genuinely overwhelmed & this adrenaline rush is inevitably leading people to seek answers as to how they can regain control.
I believe this is why Tarot is having a resurgence as a belief system. The 78 mirrors to experience contained in the Tarot perhaps offer more accessible direction & answers to those we know through other belief systems, such as organised religion for example. I rejected organised religion as a youngster. I felt that whatever I did was going to result in some form of punishment or eternal damnation! The Tarot may present you with occasional scary concepts, Death, The Devil, The Ten of Swords, though usually by embracing these lessons & agreeing to work through them you can understand life’s challenges & reprogram your responses, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling existence.
Tarot is I believe the most powerful technology of untold possibilities. Every day I can wander through my deck & come out revitalised & ready to take on the challenges of my world & the larger questions our society is facing on a daily basis.
I am lucky to have found my answers. Many are not so fortunate & have a continuous feeling of being out of control, overwhelmed with insecurity about how their future will develop, what they can do to handle their circumstance & ultimately change their destiny.
The Answers are Within
We must accept that our answers truly lie within, that the only hope we have is to train our response to our unstable ever changing challenging world, and only try & control the very small parts over which we genuinely have control.
Every planet and star- including the Sun- has its own unique significance. The locations of the planets and stars directly affect our behavior and personality, but they all do so in different ways. The sun is our primary source of light and warmth, but its spiritual powers go much deeper. In many doctrines, the Sun is representative of life, self, health and well-being. It is also what gives us strength and energy to accomplish both our major life goals and our small daily tasks. Without the Sun, we would be weak physically, mentally and emotionally; its power should never be underestimated. If you can learn to harvest the power of the Sun, you will have control over both your individual self and your well-being.
The power of the Sun can help in several areas of our lives. Aside from being necessary for physical life, it can help us connect with our spiritual selves and manifest what we want out of life. There is usually a positive feeling associated with the word “abundance.” Abundance quite literally means “a very large quantity of something.” Can you think of something that you think you would like to have an abundance of? Is it money? Happiness? Friends? Love? There are so many things that we can benefit from having an abundance of- and when we have an abundance of something, it also means that we have more to give. By connecting with the Sun, visualising its every beam manifesting our desires, we can use its power to visualise abundance.
Visualisation is a powerful tool used in several practices from meditation and yoga to astrology. Essentially, visualisation enables a direct line of communication between your desires and your subconscious mind. When you picture your desires clearly and with intent, your subconscious mind understands that you want to recreate these desires in your real life and it will manifest them into reality. The power of the Sun can enhance the strength of your visualisation. Here’s how to use the power of the sun to visualise abundance: first, find a place to lay down outside that is in direct sunlight. It’s best to do this on a day when the Sun is particularly warm. Lay down with your back to the ground and arms at your sides, palms facing up towards the Sun. Now go into a period of deep meditation- take deep breaths in and out of your nose and with each breath, think about how the Sun makes you feel. Feel its warmth on your skin and the power that it has. Now, picture whatever it is that you would like to have an abundance of. Imagine that it is a battery and the sun is the energy source. Continue meditating with this image in your mind. Visualise the Sun powering the energy of abundance.
When you connect to the power of the Sun, it can work wonders in every area of your life. However, the power of the Sun can also help bring specific requests into existence- such as the request for abundance. Visit my Tarot pages for more details on the imagery of The Sun Card in Tarot. For a powerful Psychic reading, visit my Selected Best Psychics & Clairvoyants.
I wish you an amazing summer, remember every time the power of the Sun touches your skin, imagine your abundance battery being charged. I hope you manifest everything you could possibly wish for.
The moon has a huge influence on my life, the first card I created for my personal Tarot deck & constantly on my mind should I be under the effects of some lunar lunacy. You may only know it as a satellite that orbits the earth, but it plays a much larger role than lighting up our sky at night. The moon is known for having a significant impact on our habits, emotions, reactions and subconscious. While the sun is a more stable source of light and life, the moon tends to be an often credited source for reactions and feelings. It rules over the part of us that is receptive, responsive and reflective. The moon’s power is even scientifically documented. Its gravitational forces are strong enough to affect the ocean’s tides; as beings that are made up of over 70% water, it’s unsurprising that it has an affect on us, too. Because the moon has such a strong connection to our subconscious, it also has an impact on our dreams. If you’ve ever wanted to connect with your dreams, the lunar power of the moon may be what you’ve been missing.
If you’re someone who has vivid dreams or keeps a dream journal, then no doubt you have noticed some patterns in your dreaming. If you haven’t, then try this: think back to your most intense or outrageous dreams and take a look at the calendar. Chances are, these dreams coincide with full moons. In addition to bringing us our most surreal dreams, studies have shown that the full moon causes us to sleep less, sleep more restlessly, and take longer to fall asleep. Perhaps that’s why our full moon dreams are so strange…
There are many sleep studies that have shown that while some people, like those who are depressed, have more detailed or vivid dreams, others barely dream at all. If you’re someone who is unable to connect well with your dreams, the secret to enhancing your connection could be to pay closer attention to the lunar phases. Many people who feel disconnected to their dreams simply forget the dreams that they do have, and they don’t even know that they forgot! The memory may have flashed through their mind in the morning and left before they even realised it was there. We remember our dreams best when we first wake up. To connect better with your dreams, use your calendar to track the moon’s cycle. Mark down the nights when there will be a full moon. After each of those nights, in the early hours of the next morning, wake yourself up with an alarm and immediately write down everything you remember about your dreams. This is the time when your dreams will be the most vivid and by writing them down immediately, you’ll be able to read over, understand and connect with them better.
The lunar power of the moon truly does have a profound effect on our subconscious thoughts and feelings. During times of full moon, not only will you dream more, but your dreams are bound to be more realistic, detailed, and wild! Even for those that don’t dream often, by tracking the lunar phases, you could connect with your dreams better than you ever thought possible.
What a weekend. An amazing time of incredible storms & powerful energies. The atmosphere was indeed electric, big hitters of the Tarot coming through in many readings to instigate serious shifts & cathartic conversations. Judgement, The Ten of Swords, The Lovers & of course the Tower struck by lightning. My brief was ‘Give it to us straight, no tall dark strangers or vague karma’. I loved it, showed up suited & booted. I love giving readings that shake things up & make people see potential from a different perspective. Lots of Moon cards for some added lunar lunacy. All in all I am one happy Cartomancer.
Wow, That Card is So Bang On!
The reason Tarot works is that it is a distilled microcosm of any and all life experiences. This combined with the beautiful dance that occurs between an open questioner & a skilled reader often leads to incredible synchronicities. When the reader sees their situation laid before them across the coloured pasteboards of the Tarot, the alternative possible paths offered by the reader seem enticing, like teasers in a delirious summer dream.
Were the cards wrong?
Though I have walked the Royal Road of Tarot for more than 40 years, sometimes real life throws me a curveball that makes me re-assess & investigate a constellation of cards that seemed a foregone conclusion, yet turn out to lead to a different manifestation of events in the lives of the sitters.
Last year I gave an ‘open & shut case’ reading for a young lady. Textbook Major Arcana fest that started with the High Priestess & developing wisdom & feminine intuition. Through the Two of Cups & ultimately the Lovers & every other union card in a positive position in the spread that laid a beautiful relationship aead of us on the table in the tropics where we had enjoyed a beautiful afternoon. Imagine my surprise when I heard through the grapevine that these young Lovers are having a wobble & even thinking of going their separate ways. I was gobsmacked, were my impressions wrong? had someone slipped some duff cards in to my deck like James Bond to Solitaire in Live & Let Die?
What had happened to these to young Lovers was simply called ‘life’. Obviously as the all seeing ego driven important oracle that I am I was shaken up by the news, I had to accept that it had absolutely nothing to do with me. I went over the fragments of the reading in my head, I had given the necessary disclaimers around the reading & I was comfortable that the young lady had gone away thoughtful though not in any way reliant or shaken up by her cards.
As readers that is all we can hope for, that our wisdom & experience offers alternative life choices in an entertaining & empowering way. Ultimately the choices are down to the questioner, exactly as it should be.
Always the same question, “How do Tarot cards work?” The young lady in front of me quizzical, skeptical & a little on edge. My answer, always the same, “Tarot has no inherent power, they are just 78 painted pasteboards. The ‘power’ comes from the age old wisdom contained in the symbols, combined with my skill as a reader & how the rapport develops between us to uncover some truths about you, your life, and maybe how various possible timelines could manifest for you. Are you ready to put your trust in me, the cards & most importantly yourself, to go for a dance through the Tarot?”
Put Your Trust in a Tarot reading: How to get the best reading
Many people conjure up a very stereotypical image when they picture a tarot card reading. It usually has something to do with a long-haired “gypsy” woman flipping tarot cards one at a time while she tells you about dark haired strangers on far flung shores. This image is what causes many people to discredit tarot card readings entirely. Let me tell you a secret: true Tarot card readings are nothing like the images in your head or the readings in the movies. There is no woman in flowing clothes predicting your impending doom. Instead, a tarot card reading involves a trained and gifted intuitive using Tarot cards to give you insight about your life & possible direction.
There are two types of Tarot card readings: question readings and open readings. Open readings give information about broad areas of your life, while question readings address address a specific question. Neither type of reading is designed to give you step by step instructions on how to live your life; rather, they exist to guide you in your decision-making process. Regardless of the type of reading you choose, there are certain ways to guarantee a trusted Tarot reading. One of these ways is to use a Tarot spread.
There are several different methods that a Tarot card reader can use when giving a reading. One of the methods is called a Tarot spread. A Tarot spread involves the reader laying out a series of tarot cards in a predetermined pattern and interpreting each card’s meaning in regards to your current situation. There are myriad different spreads that a Tarot card reader can use – it all depends on what information you are seeking. For example, if you’d like to learn more about your past, present or future relationship(s), you can use a relationship Tarot spread; if you’d like to learn more about your spiritual self, you might use a mandala Tarot spread; if you’d like to learn the meaning behind a specific or recurring dream, you could use a dream exploration spread. In short, different spreads answer different questions and the spread used by your Tarot card reader will have a direct impact on the information you receive.
Even the most skeptical people can enjoy a trusted Tarot reading. Many people enter a Tarot reading with a skeptical demeanor and leave with an entirely different world-view. Out of the many ways to receive a trusted Tarot reading– using a reputable reader, having an open mind, being receptive to the information- using a tarot spread is one of the most effective. I offer several different spreads, all which cater to different areas you may want insight on such as Birthday, Tree of life, Planetary and Celtic cross.
