Full Moon Madness!

Crystals on the window

The Full Pisces Super Moon was in full effect (no pun intended) this weekend!  Holy cow was it a majorly emotional Saturday!  I was reunited with two people from my past, which was great, though my afternoon run-in was extremely overwhelming and I felt like a sea was raging inside of me.  It genuinely felt like the Pisces waters were rumbling and crashing inside and around me until my evening run-in, which was a welcome relief.

My sister brought up a good point regarding my afternoon encounter.  She asked me to figure out what my afternoon encounter meant to me so that I could decipher what underlying feelings were there.  I couldn’t think of anything, I just sat with it for a bit and I’m hoping to do this tarot spread to help shed some light on these feels.  As for the other Moon madness, jump away with me!

The 888 Power Tarot Spread

888PowerSpread_08262015Yet another amazing Instagrammer shared another amazing spread and I was blown away by it!  Lisa Frideborg Eddy – who I follow intensely – shared a wonderful post to her Instagram about yesterday being the last of the 888 days in 2015.  She directed us to her website where she had a tarot spread ready and waiting to help us tap into this 888 power!

I, being me, got overly excited and couldn’t wait to do it!  I immediately laid out my reading cloth, picked not one but TWO goal cards (they go hand-in-hand) and got to work on what it would look like manifesting said goal(s).  It was great!  I’m wondering if this could be adapted for a more general purpose.  Probably so, right?  Check out the details on her blog and dive in with me below!

Conversations With Your Future Self – A Spread

ConvosWithFutureSelf_08252015A while back, I shared my tarot journey with a friend / co-worker and she was delighted to hear I could sling some cards for her!  After some clever schedule aligning, we were able to set up a date and time for me to read for her…live and in person.  Whoa!  Cue the excitement and nervousness!

Part of that included me asking her to pick her spread of choice since she seemed to flip-flop between what question to ask.  She picked the Conversations With Your Future Self spread by Alexis (at Worts and Cunning) so I gave it a test drive on myself to see how it reads and lemme tell ya, it’s going to give us a lot to talk about!

Coincidentally, Deela Hunt had just posted her reading with this spread, which made me want to do it even more!  Synchronicity!

Expanding Upon Your Relationships: A Spread

ExpandingRelationships_08232015There’s a wonderful Tarot reader on Instagram that I follow, @fabianslight, and he was kind enough to share with me – and another wonderful Instagrammer, @1inspired_beauty – this spread for expanding upon your relationships.

I decided to dive in with my lovely Tarot of Delphi because I have been trying to shake off this melancholy cloud that has been hovering over me all weekend.

22-Card Tableau: A Tarot Adventure!

22-Card Layout I saw this intimidating-yet-intriguing-looking spread on Jack of Wands’s blog and I just had to try it because it’s the largest spread I’ve encountered on my Tarot journey so far and I had “I like big spreads and I cannot lie” thrashing around in my head as I took notes from Jack’s blog to start my 22-Card adventure!

New Moon In Leo Reading

New Moon In Leo 08142015 Ethony's New Moon Spread 08142015Friday night, I decided to have myself a little party of sorts!  I originally hadn’t planned on doing anything major during this New Moon but after I watched Maria Mextli‘s New Moon Intention Setting video on Periscope (aka: the reason I rejoined Twitter!) I felt like I should totally get my New Moon Intention Setting jam on!

The Four Queens’s Self-Love Reading

Self-Love Spread 08122015-2I might have stumbled upon Kelly-Ann’s Self-Love September via her blog or gone down my favorite YouTube rabbit hole of spread-hunting through this video but either way, I’m so happy I ended up on Kelly-Ann’s video #207: Self-Love September – Useful Spreads. 

I waited for my boyfriend to go to sleep before diving in to this very intense spread.  I tried to approach it a little light-heartedly but after I turned over the first card, I knew there was no way we were staying light-hearted.  This was going to be W. O. R. K.   Continue reading The Four Queens’s Self-Love Reading

Breaking The Cycle – A Tarot Spread

I realized I had not posted the very first spread I ever crafted on this blog and I thought to myself, “Self, you need to move this over so that you can share this spread with other people who might need guidance!”

On the night of June 3, 2015, I had the most intense dream.  I was being instructed by The Cut-Wife from Penny Dreadful and Jaqen H’ghar from Game of Thrones.  Nerdiest dream ever, I know, but there’s a reason!

You Are The Voice and The Breath of Universes – A Fountain Tarot Spread

My boyfriend gets up for work at 2am.  Sometimes he wakes me up and I am able to go back to sleep, other times he wakes me up and I stay awake.  This morning, I couldn’t go back to sleep.

As I snuggled in to get comfortable, I saw a flash coming from my Fountain Tarot box.  It made me start thinking of the quote inside: “You are the voice and the breath of universes” which got me thinking: “Wouldn’t it be awesome if somebody did a spread related to that quote?!”  And then the questions started… What would it look like?  What would it be about?  What would the end result be?  I tried to fight it but the words just kept coming!  I had to grab a pen, sketch it out and see for myself what The Fountain would tell me.
