New Moon in Aries: Tarot Tough Love

This New Moon in Aries got super duper real with me.  Talk about Tarot Tough Love!  I haven’t had a chance to really sit down with my cards and fully check in with my Self in quite some time and I could feel the Aries fire burning brightly and a little more tumultuous than normal (quite possibly being fanned by my Libra airiness) really wanting a full-on check in.  So, I grabbed my favorite decks, invited my Spirit Squad in and asked, “Hey Self, what do you really, really want?”

Deck Interview Spread: 78 Cards


Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you’re having a great one so far!  I’ve been buzzing around running errands but I wanted to spend some quality time with my beautiful new deck before the day got away from me!

Because I missed the Kickstarter fun on this deck by *this much*, I got in on the second round of Lana Zellner‘s 78 Cards!  Honestly, I forget how this deck even popped up in my feed but I’m so glad it did!  It was either Insta, Tumblr, Facebook or any of the amazing writers mentioning they had a part in the book.  I mean, seriously, how amazing is this lineup: Kelly-Anne Maddox writing the Majors (WHAAT!),  Ethony Dawn writing the Swords (!!!), Sebastian Akesson writing the Cups (ZOMG!!), Christy Talbot writing the Wands, and Lana herself writing the Pentacles!  Love it!  The artwork is crazy beautiful, especially since I love love love tattoo art!

For now, I only have the deck but the book will be ordered soon.  Until then, let’s see how my Tarot knowledge handles these beauties!

Leo Full Moon – A Spread

Tonight’s Full Moon in Leo feels like a big one.  I don’t know why but something about it does.  I think that part of me is realizing that I have missed doing my New and Full Moon rituals at my old apartment in my own space and quiet time.  And on these Moons, I would also bring all of my crystals friends out to my closed-in deck to cleanse them with Sage or Palo Santo or both.  While I love my current living situation, one thing is missing: an outdoor deck.  I’m not a huge fan of bringing my crystals out to the common area of the parking lot area at my apartment complex.  Cleansing my crystals and decks is very sacred to me and not something I want to do while “on display”.

I decided I needed a new ritual, especially since it snowed last night and it’s way too cold to be outside for too long, says the Puerto Rican living in Atlanta.  Winter and I do not get along.  Yes, I enjoy the stillness and calm that Winter brings but I don’t enjoy bundling up.  I’m still fine-tuning my indoor Winter Weather Advisory ritual and so far, I’m feeling pretty good.  Lots of candles, incense, and Palo Santo burning away!

Luckily for us, this fiery Full Moon feels transformative.  Maybe because it’s the first Full Moon on 2016.  Maybe because it’s in confident, ambitious Leo.  Either way, I’m loving the energies and I want to capitalize on these transformative, ambitious energies as much as I can!
