How has September treated you? September’s message in the Nine of Wands hit me pretty hard that month. The phrase that kept coming up for me was “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle” – myself included. If anything, September’s message was that of resilience and courage. Where did you find your resilience and courage? How will that transition us into October?
Oh. My. Glob. This. Deck. I don’t think I’ve experienced #decklust or deck FOMO this hard since…I don’t know when, to be perfectly honest. I had seen so many gorgeous photos of this “sassy burrito” deck and I just knew I had to have it. When I felt like I couldn’t take it any longer, I went to order it but it was sold out! Major sad face. But then Jess posted about it and I knew that I had to keep trying so that I could finally get my hands on this lovely. To my delight, it was back in stock (forever, I hope!) at Stasia Burrington’s shop. Of course I ordered it immediately and of course I reveled in the gold edged, silky smooth, magical cards. Let’s take a look at what’s in store with our budding new friendship.
This might be an unpopular opinion but I loved The OA. It was surprising in many different ways. I really enjoy the way Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij tell stories. It’s great to see their collaborations come to life in such a unique way. If you haven’t seen Another Earth, I strongly recommend it! The East is also worth the watch as well! But I digress.
The OA was so mystical and other-worldly and it felt like an extended, or possibly a long-lost episode of Supernatural, minus Sam and Dean. And the performances by the entire cast was wonderful! Everyone blew me away.
I remember seeing Vix’s spread on FB forever ago and it piqued my interest, so I watched one episode and then promptly binged the whole series, as one does with Netflix shows these days. And then, I just forgot about it. Maybe the timing and deck choices weren’t right at that time. Maybe this spread was waiting for me to buy the Dame Darcy Mermaid Tarot (what the heck took me so long?!). Maybe I didn’t need to deal with this intense of a look into things until now. Who knows! Let’s take a trip to The OA and maybe we’ll learn the 5th movement.
Oh my glob, what a wild start to June! The past few weeks have been pretty intense to say the least. It all started with a small leak in my apartment, the realization I haven’t had a good, cleansing cry in a while, another leak, getting sick, and yet another leak! Ugh! What the eff is going on?!
After visioning a very colorful body scan in the Wisdom Within School, I wanted to take a closer look at the lightning bolts that apparently inhabit my Root Chakra. I’m really happy I did this too because I have more healing that needs to be done than I originally thought. *nervous laughter* It’s about to get personal…
Here we go again! Another month gone! Instead of my usual “OMG how has this happened?!”, I’m going to say that time really does fly when you’re having fun! How is your year going so far? How was March? Did you tap into your inner Queen of Pentacles and make self love and self care a priority? I added it to my Bullet Journal habit tracker for March so I could watch my progress and…it appears I need more of it.
What does April have in store for us?
Even though February is a short month, it really flew by, didn’t it? I hope it wasn’t just me!
I don’t know about you but my February was full of lots of synchronicities. There were way too many coincidental things that could not be ignored. I think I definitely put February’s card into practice consciously and subconsciously. How about you? Did you take the hint from the Seven of Crystals? How does that lead into March?
This little deck has gone through quite a bit on its journey! I was still fairly new to the whole Kickstarter thing. In fact, this was the first Kickstarter I had ever backed! A little over a year later and Ginnie Jester‘s creation is finally here! Let’s see how well we’ll work together, shall we?
