Vacation Away Message!

Hi there, my beautiful star seeds!  Welcome to The Willow Path Tarot! If you are new here, let me introduce myself as a traveling tarot reader. I love to travel. I’ve been to over 30 countries, 47 of the states, and have lived in many places. And guess what? This travel bandit is off in Europe for five weeks until October 6th, 2016!

One might be wondering why I decided to start a trip the day that Mercury goes retrograde, an infamously jinxed day for travel, technology, and communication. Well, sometimes you can’t plan around the stars, but you can plan your mindset! My mindset has been super organized and detail-oriented, great characteristics for a Mercury in Virgo retrograde with the double action of the Sun in Virgo. I have the logistics for this trip worked out. So I’m not worried, I’m pumped about using this grounding, earth energy to my advantage. Mercury retrograde can be a productive and perspective changing time. Use this Virgo energy to supercharge projects you want to finish up now. AND the New Moon is in Virgo today!  Virgo madness!

All of this planning, and a wonderfully successful August at The Willow Path Tarot, has left me a little worn out though. Another aspect of a retrograde period is accessing other re- words, for example: recovery, rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. All things I could really use! For that reason, I will only be offering postcard or handwritten tarot readings for the next five weeks while I am traveling. I decided not to bring my computer on this trip and that means email readings would just be too tricky. I want to take a break from this Mac and recuperate my creative spark! I love long-hand writing though and penpals so if you would like a snail mail reading, feel free to order one any time! 

Kristen and I are off to Ireland, Germany, and Norway. If you happen to be in one of those countries and want to meet up for an in-person reading, let’s do it!  That sounds amazing. We are also open to suggestions about what we should do, see, eat, and drink while we are over there, so feel free to comment with recommendations! Kristen has already booked 15 shows (!) along the way, but there are still lots of nights off so if you happen to want to do a house show or offer a venue, that’s welcome information as well🙂 We are so excited to be seeing new places, meeting wonderful people, and expanding our world view. If you would like to see pictures of our trip check me out on Instagram!

Until next time, sending you lots of high vibes, belly laughs, and warm hugs!

New Moon in Virgo Tarot Reading for September 1, 2016

Happy September and Happy New Moon in Virgo! The deep earth energy of the New Moon today has me thinking about fall and the end of the year. It’s hard to believe that 2016 is already slowly drawing to a close. Now it’s important to take stock and reacquaint ourselves with the goals we set at the beginning of the year, the progress we have made, and the forward path we want to pursue. I’ve designed a special tarot reading for us all to work with the Virgo earth energy now at this New Moon. Enjoy!
FullSizeRender (3)

What needs to be organized or finished in order to feel more productive? II of Wands
Virgo is calling on you to live out the vision you have created for your life. You had an idea, a plan, a vision, a path to follow. You know what you want. You’ve made excellent decisions or at least you are trying your best and feel motivated and optimistic. The II of Wands is creative and inspired, and is a wonderful sign that you actually are already feeling organized and ticking off boxes on your To Do List. The energy of the Virgo New Moon is working to support you in continuing this process. The challenge now is to start thinking longer-term. You may need to branch out from your comfort zone in order to expand and make great progress. Think of this as a fun challenge that you can meet with enthusiasm and creativity. Oftentimes we fear that which we don’t know, yet encountering the unknown is the only way to acquire further knowledge. You can do this. Sit down now with the power of the New Moon at your back, and made a long term vision for your future.

Where should attentions be focused for the remainder of the year?The World
You can start the vision by focusing on the remainder of the year. You started this year with big goals and The World card is telling you that you can accomplish those big goals. The World is a card of completion and integration. You can succeed, you are succeeding, you have succeeded. When you are sitting down to envision your long-term goals, why not start out by making a list of what steps you have taken and achieved up to this point. Congratulate yourself! You’re doing awesome! Now, what do you want to do next that will make you feel whole, sustained, and an integral part of your surroundings? The World and the II of Wands often indicate travel or new locations. Do you feel like you have seen enough of your world? Maybe it’s time to plan and execute a trip that you have long been hoping to take. The World is yours to discovery. What are you hoping to find?

How to best shower the body and environment with love and attention?VII of Wands
The VII of Wands indicates a struggle against the odds, one where you have to fight to hold your position, drawing deeply upon your inner-strength of purpose. Perhaps you have been working to create a healthy lifestyle and a secure home environment for some time now and finally feel like you have found a routine and space that serves you. Stick to it! Challenges will definitely crop up that will make you feel like falling off the proverbial wagon, but one slip, or even 15 slip ups, doesn’t mean you have failed or have to throw in the towel. Life is a process, you just have to keep trying and hold true to what you want. Clarity of purpose is more important that flawless execution of the plan. Do not berate yourself, just dust yourself off, recommit to your goal, and acknowledge that perfection is impossible. You will always be learning and growing until the day you die. Then- who knows!?

Best wishes for a happy and productive New Moon in Virgo!

 

New Moon in Leo Tarot Reading for August 2nd, 2016

Hello during the New Moon in Leo! This New Moon comes with the radiant and joy-filled time of summer and abundance in my neck of the woods. With the Sun and the Moon in Leo, it’s really time for us to shine forth. It’s time to let your love light shine and project your self-confidence onto the world. People tend to want to express themselves and show off their fabulous selves when Leo is prominent in the sky. I’ve been feeling a lot of heavy energy though, and I am not the only one judging by conversations with friends and many other tarot readers in my online community. So how can we embrace joy when we are feeling low or defeated? How can we increase the energy of our confidence when we are uncertain? I’m using my new Zombie Tarot deck to ask the Universe for some heartfelt guidance at this time. I know zombies aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but I’m using the Leo New Moon as an excuse to show off something new I own that really resonates with my wacky personality. Here’s what the tarot has in store for us this moon cycle:

How can I step more fully into my radiance and embrace joy?- Nine of Cups
The Nine of Cups is the card of wish fulfillment, of blessings, and of dreams come true. Can you embrace your everyday human blessing that is fulfillment and joy? Will you allow yourself to be happy? Do you know the difference between happiness and joy? I saw it explained by Danielle Laporte as happiness being a fleeting delight, while joy is an ever-present and eternal part of your soul. The Nine of Cups is about acknowledging and accepting the fact that you can experience and embody joy every single day, even when you are unhappy. It is the nature of human beings that we can know everything will be okay. It’s hard to admit that we can be radiant and joyful in the present, even with all the baggage of the past and all the potential of the future hovering around us. The Chariot rx asks us to get into that present time next.

What will help me increase my self-confidence so I can shine?- The Chariot rx
The Chariot is a card of movement and action, but with it here in reversed we get the message to stop striving towards some future goal, and appreciate where we are right now. Take a break from the constant forward push and just be still. You do not have to wait to achieve some future goal, to turn into the person you want to be someday, before you can be confident. You do not live in the future. You live in the present. The only time to be confident is right now. You want to make progress, develop, grow, be better, be smarter, be more. The Chariot rx says that you are enough right now. You are right where you are supposed to be. You are doing your best. You are being your best present self. If you really aren’t, you can do something about it right now to change yourself. Who cares where you end up as long as you are true to yourself in the now and in every present moment. Each of those moments of present adds up to a lifetime no matter what you do.

How can I energize and ignite my creations and manifestations?- The Tower rx
The Tower promises sudden change, epiphanies and revelations, but with this card drawn in reverse, your wait for a stroke of enlightenment may be long and unfruitful. Sometimes change is slow, even agonizingly slow. In our agony we fail to realize that we are making progress. We are creating and manifesting out dreams. It’s just so incremental as to slip under the radar and make us feel like we are one failed project after another since those seem to be big and stick out in our memories. But what about all the small victories? The things that didn’t seem like much at the time but have amounted to a whole lot over time. You are nowhere near where you started out on this journey. You are doing it, one step at time, one check off the old To Do list, piece by piece. You need to do a little dance or celebration for those accomplishments and then not throw in the towel because it’s taking way longer than you hoped to get to your goal. You can do it, keep building!

 

I hope you enjoyed this mini New Moon reading inspired by the Moon in Leo! New Moons are great times for new beginnings so put your old fears aside and decide to begin afresh.

Birthday Reading for My Year of The Lovers

Another birthday, another birthday tarot reading! My birthday was July 8th and it was fantastic. My sister came in from Philly and two friends from Boston came for a visit as well and we just lived it up. That’s why my reading write up is a little late! I did schedule in the time to draw the cards on my actual birthday though, because that just makes me so happy. If you want to do a birthday reading for yourself, or have me do one for you, it really doesn’t have to be on your birthday. I just love the symbolism and the nurturing effect of spending quality time focusing on myself on my special annual day.

I’m entering a new tarot year cycle, like you do every year, and this one will be ruled by The Lovers. The Lovers represent personal values and personal belief systems. They come after the energy of The Hierophant which is society telling you the norms of behavior, emotion, action, and belief. With The Lovers comes self-made decisions and choices about what you personally believe and how you want to align your actions with those beliefs. These decisions often involve how and who we love, how we form partnerships, and what we believe and do in our relationships. I’m going to get married during my year of The Lovers! Whoot!

I will get to writing more of my thoughts on what a year of The Lovers entails at a later date, but for now, I’m exploring the possibilities of how The Lovers energy will manifest in my current year through this tarot reading. Here are the cards from The Wild Unknown Tarot deck that I drew and the meanings of the positions below:
FullSizeRender

What do I bring with me to this year of The Lovers? Ace of Wands
Creativity, ideas, passion, drive, fecundity. This looks like the best card of the draw to me right now!🙂 I’m bringing a lot of enthusiasm and fresh energy with me to the start of this year. The Ace of Wands reminds me of all the ideas and creative projects I have going on right now. It feels like I have something wonderful to bring with me, that I am inspired, and ready to create. I can bring sunshine, creativity, and a sense of blossoming into the coming year. There is a lot of potential with the Ace of Wands, the key is to tap into that potential, work hard, and make something happen. Pure potential is great, but it doesn’t manifest on it’s own- I have to make use of it. It is a seed that needs to be nurtured in order for it to grow. My challenge is to keep going when the initial excitement of the year’s beginning recedes and I have still have to do the work of caring for and growing my projects.

What is The Lovers beneficial influence?- V of Swords reversed 
Learning to get along, figuring out how to communicate, refraining from competition. The V of Swords reversed signals the cessation of the classic struggle inherent in all 5 cards in the tarot deck. The Swords often have to do with a battle of the mind, so this year could find me learning how to quiet the negative voice inside my head that says, “You’re not doing as well as others. You are not fitting in. You need to beat the competition. You are not worthy of love. You are doing a bad job at life.” Or any other dark thought pattern that acts to separate myself mentally from those around me because I’ve decided that we are at odds. The Lovers is a card of harmony, it’s about working together towards common goals, it’s realizing that we are all one, and there is room for each of us to succeed. This year is a time for compromise and focusing on shared goals. It is a year for learning to love myself and to value my contribution to the world.

What blocks or oppositions need I be aware of?- III of Swords reversed
Refusal to make decisions, carrying past hurts, stuck in a negative space. Ah yes, the challenge for me this year will also be about the mental blocks that keep me from feeling integrated and whole with the Universe. We are all guilty of getting stuck thinking about how things have gone wrong in the past and sinking into our suffering and sorrow. Life is suffering! Yes, but it is also joy. It is a balance. It is a duality, just like The Lovers. This card shows us the yin and yang of life and asks us to make an effort to figure out the process of integration into a whole self. The III of Swords reversed is a clear warning to me that I will tend towards the negative this year, shying away from compromise, holding onto grudges, and keeping a narrow worldview. That is basically how the mind works in general, so my obstacle is known and acknowledged. Now all I have to do is keep that awareness and not let it stop me from working towards the integrated harmony of The Lovers. That’s it!?

What do I need to learn during this cycle?- The Hermit reversed
Coming out of my shell, spiritual connection to others, involvement in the world. I love being The Hermit, spending my time in quiet contemplation and isolation, exploring my calm inner center and the spiritual mysteries of life. This Hermit behavior is solitary though, and a year of The Lovers is about connection. I would love to learn this year how to connect and how to enjoy that sharing with others on a spiritual level. I want more people to find my tarot business and join with me on this path of discovery and self-awareness. I want to create a supportive and nurturing community that helps to lift each other up, instead of relying solely on my own resources to grown and protect myself. This is a difficult thing for me, it will not come naturally. The next card, The Emperor, has some advice on how I can effectively leave my shell and be more extroverted in the world.

How can I best incorporate these lessons into my life?- The Emperor
Confidence, authority, extroversion, nonstop power poses. The Emperor is the epitome of outward confidence, discipline, and authority. He truly knows what he knows and is not afraid or shy to exhibit that. The masculine energy here means doing and involvement, not being and isolation. I need to define my structures and trust in my foundation. Honestly, I feel like I do have a lot of self-confidence, I’m just not particularly keen on sharing that with others. I feel like the message here is, “Just do it.” Use fire energy to do without overplanning, overthinking it, or hesitation. I really can’t accomplish my goals by being the Hermit, no matter how much I would love it if that happened. Perhaps a bit of time working with the outward energy of the Emperor is enough so that I can build up a sustainable business and then go back within in the future, where I like to hang out.

What area of my life will be most influenced by The Lovers?- IV of Pentacles reversed
Financial stability will be difficult to achieve, feelings of security in the world will be lacking. Things are not looking so well financially for me at this time. Moving to Nashville, car repairs, medical bills, it all adds up and The Willow Path Tarot isn’t quite at the point where it covers all the expenses, nor is touring with Kristen. The IV of Pentacles reversed is all about holding onto your money, perhaps even greedily, but definitely not spending wads of cash on whatever might be tantalizing and shiny in the moment. Perhaps this year I will better define my relationship to money, or at least define it at all. Right now I feel like I am a super responsible money manager, paying my bills, and knowing to the penny what my cashflow situation is. Yet at the same time I am a super good vacation planner budgeting meticulously for the longest, most fun trip. I can earn it, but I can also spend it. What will make me happier though? Getting a steady job and having some money in the bank? Or being self-employed and having the freedom to make my own schedule but without that financial security? Perhaps this year of The Lovers will help me align my financial goals and values with my actual work actions.

What will be the most likely result at the end of this year?- Father of Pentacles reversed
Finances out of wack, time management skills lacking, not succeeding in being an Emperor. The way things are going right now I’m really resisting the need to get out of my introverted state and do more out in the world. The Father of Pentacles is the ultimate business manager. He knows how to market himself, set his financial goals, and work to achieve them. I’m really good at knowing what my goals are, but not on the part about working and moving towards those goals. I make great plans, but I do not execute well. If I truly want to succeed in growing my business, creating a firm financial structure, and feeling secure in my physical world, I need to be more present and involved in that physical world. I need to show up, connect, ground, and interact. This is my wake up call that if I don’t change my outlook on work, home, and finances, I’m not going to make any progress in ruling this domain during this year of The Lovers. The Lovers do not lend me much help here because they are associated with Gemini and Air, which is so my thing, living in the cerebral world of thinking and planning. The energy energy of the Father of Pentacles reversed reminds me that I may be in my air element with a Lovers year, but my element does not support the kind of physical security in the world that I am craving right now. I need to adjust course and work towards my goals more concretely.

Okay, well there you have it, my birthday reading for myself. I feel like there is big work to be done this year and I know where to focus my energy if I am committed to growth. I know there are tons of grounding things I can do for myself to support that growth and I am excited to put in the effort. My life feels purposeful and directed, now my challenge is to follow that feeling.  Wish me luck!

Greetings from the Mary-el Tarot Deck

For my birthday last week I was gifted the Mary-el Tarot deck by Marie White, published by Schiffer. This deck has been on my wish list for a number of years and I was super excited to receive it from my sister. I was also delighted to see that the deck came in a cute box with a magnetic lid and a companion book. I decided to ask the deck for a message and found it has some pretty deep lessons to teach me. It’s no wonder with this intense deck that big life wisdom is contained for me in the cards. The theme of the deck is described as “the alchemy of the soul; of finding balance, symmetry, mastery of the self, and becoming your own genius.”

Here is what the companion book had to say about the cards I drew from each of the elements from the Minor Arcana and one card from the Major Arcana:

FullSizeRender

The Hierophant: “Babylon is a gateway to the powerful truths that lie inside us and are completely blasphemous to any who believe you need something external for redemption, salvation, happiness, an immortal soul, and life after death. She is a monster to those who fear their own power. She is a devil to those who fear the vision of their true self.” (pg 27) “Here you will dive into the jet black pit of earth, completely separate from God, and face your deepest fears and your shadows… And if successful, you will see it for what it is, embrace it and love it as part of yourself and you will become more whole and powerful and illusions about the earth will begin to melt away.” (pg 28)

Six of Wands: “Slay your dragons, conquer your demons. Be direct and forceful.” (pg 105) “The dragons are whatever opposes you or your situation. Spiritually the dragons are darkness and ignorance within ourselves. Illuminate the darkness with fire.” (pg 104)

Five of Swords: Work through the pain and suffering, illness, depression. Whatever is afflicting you, you must keep going. Question all paranoia. Resolve conflicts and disputes with reason and intelligence.” (pg 99)

Nine of Cups: “Accept who/what/where you are with compassion, love, amazement, and humor.” (pg132) “In our earthly incarnation we live with both black and white in somewhat equal measure and they weave themselves into the checkered ground pattern that we walk upon. No matter where you step, you will surely have some black and some white under your feet.” (pg 130)

Knight of Discs: “Don’t look outside for the answer to the problem, look inside to find peace. You already have everything you are looking for. Look in your own home. Do not have doubt in yourself, you are made for this and already have all the tools. Take the middle path, use just what you need, no more or less.” (pg 162)
WOW, that’s a lot to take in, but my overall impression is one of finding wholeness within myself. I am made up of both light and shadow, happiness and depression, health and illness, loss and gain, suffering and relief. I am part of the black and white duality of existence. When I embrace this, my wholeness, and my connection to both Earth and Spirit, I am in the present and I am me. This isn’t a goal or a static state. Life is a continuously unfolding balance between different states, cycling around and around in never-ending flow. Somedays I will find the force to conquer my demons head on. Somedays I will have the mental fortitude to reason my way through my demons. Somedays I will find joy and wonder in my amazing accomplishments. Somedays I will stride along the middle path between Earth and Spirit with certitude. Every day I will be a conduit for that connection without end.

A Nurturing New Moon in Cancer, July 4, 2016

Happy New Moon in Cancer! Yes, I know I’m a tab bit late, but honestly, I feel like the fresh energy of renewal lasts for a couple of days around the New Moon, so here we go catching the tide as it rises! The New Moon in Cancer is all about nurturing, and the best thing I could do to nurture myself yesterday was not stress out about doing a blog post. We are all trying our best, people, we are all just doing the best we can (Insert crazy giggle and arm waving)! If we truly believe that, though if we do our best to love and nurture ourselves and our efforts, this creates more love and less negativity in our lives. That’s the goal: less thinking about the flaws and more marveling at the ability to manifest anything at all. What an accomplishment! Let’s ask the tarot for some advice at this New Moon in Cancer about nurturing ourselves and this great world we live in:

Ace of Wands Wild Unknown tarot

Ace of Wands
Wild Unknown tarot

What area of my personal life needs more nurturing?: Ace of Wands
Your creative drive could use a bit of love and care. Ask yourself if you have been neglecting your Inner Artist of late. When was the last time you created something just for fun, perhaps something silly or “impractical”? When was the last time you burst into song, leapt into a dance, grabbed a paintbrush, or did a cartwheel? When was the last time you laughed until you worried a little bit that you might pee your pants? The Ace of Wands is the root of inspiration, the spark of an idea, the first shoot of creativity. It must have fertile soil from which to grow, though. If you don’t let yourself have any fun and games, don’t let your inner child run amok, or just get out of that routine, routine, routine, produce, produce, produce mentality, you run out of steam to continue. The best thing you can do to nurture your creativity is to get back to the source. Dip into your inner world of joy and inspiration. What would you create if you could make or do anything, even if it seemed pointless and useless? Is something truly useless if it brings happiness and light into this world? Who cares if no one sees or appreciates your masterpiece, or if it turns out not to be a masterpiece at all but an elbow macaroni necklace. Nurture the spark of your inner passion, allow it to be weird or different or frivolous. Just make sure you love yourself. Tell yourself that your efforts are worthwhile and meaningful because they are necessary to who you essentially are as a human being.

X of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot

X of Swords
Wild Unknown Tarot

How can I be more nurturing and supportive of my creations?: X of Swords
Get out of your head! Stop your negative self talk! Okay, admittedly easier said than done. Where are you supposed to go if you have to leave your head?  What if your inner criticism monster will simply not leave you alone? Start with the small step of self awareness. Every time you slip into anxiety mode where every worst case scenario is absolutely going to destroy you, make a conscious effort to simply say, “There it is. There’s my negative self talk. This is me making up a future that doesn’t exist in which everything is bad.” Sure, it might not stop the monster inside your head, but it does separate you and all your potential from that thing that only sees failure and doom. You are inherently not a doom monster, you just have one lurking inside of you telling you that you don’t deserve nurturing or support or anything good at all in your life. And then even if you do deserve it sometimes, the world will conspire against you so that it never comes. Take a tiny 5 minutes from your day and imagine the best case scenario. If you can take the time to write down you happiest outcome, do that as well. Now refer back to that positive outcome once a day. Is it so unobtainable? Is it so crazy to think that you are a good, deserving, amazing person? Nurture that positivity, let it grow and expand. You are ultimately the only person necessary when it comes to nurturing yourself.

The Sun rx Wild Unknown tarot

How can I contribute to creating a more nurturing and caring world around me?: The Sun reversed
The world around us is a living, vibrant, constantly changing and evolving place. We all want to save the Earth as a planet and unite in love and peace as humans and living things on its surface. None of us know how to do that, though. There are lots of ideas about how we could protect the planet and how we could all get along. The thing is, nothing is guaranteed or even particularly effective at this point. So how do we live with that uncertainty? How do we trust in the joy and radiance of The Sun? How can we have faith and belief in a happy ending? Well, we just do. I think it’s simply the human condition. We are limited in our senses and in our knowledge. We don’t know what the meaning of life is and we don’t know what happens after we die. All we can do is try to be happy, try to be loving and kind to each other, try to respect the environment in which we live, and hope that that is good enough. There is so much light and positivity available to us, The Sun reminds us, but the reversal speaks of surprises and hidden joys. We never know what is going to happen in the future. We can only hope for the best, for deep meaning, or a purpose, for it all to be revealed to us someday.

Best of love and nurture at this New Moon in Cancer. As always, if you need a more in depth personalized reading, please get in touch. I am available for email readings any time!
