Hola my moo-tiful people! I hope that the previous month have treated you udderly well 🐮

My dear pet cow Betsy decided to chill out in the backyard. The Cancer season made her feel pretty homely so she took her time picking out the cards.  For this month, I will be using the Sacred India Tarot by Yogi Impressions and our three oracle decks Sensory OracleNYC Vintage Subway Wanderlust Oracle and Persona Femina Oracle (you can purchase our decks here). Looking at the cards below, anticipate some emotional and transitional changes for the course of the month.

Let us moo-ve into the reading! 

Overall View Of The Month

For the beginning of the month, we have the Four of Discs (Pentacles). The subject of walking away and maintaining stability can be a hard balance to follow. Financially speaking, this can be a time of good investments and making sound business decisions. Relationships wise - it can be an indication that either you or your partner are in the midst of growing separately and trying to figure out how to compromise.  Even in platonic relationships, you might feel the need to step away for a moment to get your bearings straight before coming back with a fresh pair of eyes. 

For the middle of the month, we have the King of Staves(Wands). Creativity will be at its highest peak as you’ll be able to take on more opportunities for expansion and growth.  You may encounter an enigmatic person who might question your lifestyle. The King of Wands isn’t just charismatic - they’re bold, risk takers and are able to work around their limitations through plenty of influence. 

For the end of the month, we have the Ten of Arrows (Swords). Your ego may feel shot down due to drastic events. Additionally, this is forcing you to become humble and realize your actions. Perhaps it is a teachable moment that in your moment of suffering, unconsciously you’re letting others know the do’s and don’ts of your situation. The only way to get back is to rise up. At the same time, realize that shedding away your old ways will help bring forth new ideas and a better perspective.

Astrology Aspects For This Month

  • Chiron retrograde 7/1
  • Venus in Gemini 7/4
  • Mercury in Leo 7/5
  • Full Moon in Capricorn 7/9
  • Ceres in Cancer 7/10
  • Vesta in Virgo 7/17
  • Mars in Leo 7/20
  • Sun enters Leo 7/22
  • New Moon Leo 7/23
  • Mercury in Virgo 7/25
  • Venus in Cancer 7/31

Lessons From The Oracle

For the overall lesson, we have “Sword”, “Opportunities” and “Smiling Through The Pain”. Considering the parallels between the tarot reading and what the oracle cards are showing, it’s no surprise that you’ll need to focus on pushing past your blockages. In this moment and time, having a firm stand while breaking away from toxic situations will help clear away the old. It’ll take a lot of finesse and maneuvering.  You may feel that you need to cover up your emotions. Remember that it’s okay to let out a few tears. It’s your soul reminding you that you’re human.  Nevertheless, keep on fighting the good fight.

I hope you enjoyed my monthly reading! What do you anticipate for the month of July to provide? Let me know in the comments 😃

New Moon in Cancer: Tarot Spell for Emotional Clarity

My Apple Pencil died on me, so I resorted to doing my sketch the traditional way...

My Apple Pencil died on me, so I resorted to doing my sketch the traditional way...

Cancers are very in tune with their emotions. Some say they are sensitive. I don’t see it as a negative trait. I feel that in many ways, Cancers have the ability to showcase a humanistic approach when coping with situations. Needless to say, there are moments where they’ll feel something and there isn’t a well defined name on how to describe a particular feeling. 

Have you been feeling fuzzy as of late? Not sure what’s happening internally and need to have some closure? We will be using The High Priestess in hopes of invoking her magick on going beyond the veil. The High Priestess planetary association is The Moon (also the ruling planet for Cancer). 

This particular spell involves hydromancy (or water scrying). Similar to mirror scrying, it’s a good form on getting in touch with your unconscious. Also for receiving messages from beyond.

You will need:

  • The High Priestess (deck of your choice)
  • Clear quartz crystal
  • Dark bowl
  • Water
  • Two candles

Directions:

  • Find a dark quiet place where you won’t be disturbed (can be indoors or outdoors). 
  • Fill the bowl with water. Add your clear quartz crystal inside the bowl. 
  • Light the two candles and place them on opposite ends of the bowl. Place The High Priestess card in front of you. 
  • Take the time to enter yourself in a trance-like state. It can be as simple as meditating. You can also listen to some music if it helps. As you’re doing so, recite the following:

    Like the tides of the waves
    My emotions go low and high
    Awaken my senses
    Help me see what’s inside
     
  • Stare into the water. Use the crystal in the water as a focal point. Your eyes will need to be relaxed. Hold in the intention on what you are feeling at the moment. Are you trying to make sense of your emotional well being? You may notice some ripples and images coming through the water. Keep in mind that your own interpretation should not be compared to what others may see when they perform water scrying. Remain calm and steady as you're in this state. Don't give yourself a time limit on the process. Allow the Universe to guide you when honing in on your emotional needs. 
  • Once you feel like you’re starting to lose focus, let it be. When you feel you are finished with scrying, be sure to make note of any visions, images, etc. that you may have encountered. Don’t forget to thank your spirit guides!

Let me know what you think. Feedback is appreciated!

Blessings,
Diana

Full Moon in Sagittarius: Tarot Spell For Manifesting Good Luck

The Full Moon in Sagittarius offers a lot of potential for growth, abundance and helping turn the tide in difficult situations (especially on legal matters). Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter, which is the tarot correspondence to The Wheel of Fortune. If you feel like you’re down on your luck and want to shake things up, check out my spell below.

You Will Need:

  • Wheel of Fortune tarot card (deck of your choice)
  • Crystals - tigers eye, jade and aventurine 
  • A charm bag
  • A key that you own (be it your house key, bank deposit key, etc)
  • Your favorite incense (you can also use white sage or palo santo) 

Directions

  • Burn your favorite incense, white sage or palo santo. 
  • Take the crystals, Wheel of Fortune Card and key. Lay them out in front of you. 
  • As you pass over the incense/white sage/palo santo, recite the following:

    Good vibes come my way
    I am willing to change my fate
    No more feeling stuck
    No more running out of luck
    Let the wheel turn my way
    I accept with good intentions today
    I unlock my true potential
    Each gate will be special
    With no harm, this spell is done
     
  • Place the crystals, tarot card and key into a charm bag. Carry it with you whenever you need a boost of luck on a tricky situation (financial, relationships, legal, work, etc.) Be sure to thank your spirit guides for their help!

Tarot Astrology Scopes for June 2017

Hola everyone! I've compiled up a short and sweet list containing the tarot astrology scopes. I am using the Shadowscapes Tarot Deck (pictured below).  The scopes below can be applied to the Sun, Moon and Rising signs. Enjoy!

ARIES: EIGHT OF PENTACLES

You're in the process of finessing your craft with plenty of passion and bravado. However, you're often reminded to stay humble in terms of your achievements. A big time to showcase your worth.

TAURUS: PAGE OF WANDS RX

You may have found some news about a project going south. Or you may be surrounded by a group of negative folks who don't seem to care for your intentions. You have what it takes to make a breakthrough. Just don't listen to the monkey chatter.

GEMINI: JUDGEMENT RX

You can't seem to make up your mind on whether to move on forward from a binding situation. Have you been feeling too invested on seeing others suffer? It's okay to see people get their dues in return for the wrong doings they've done to you. But, you really need to detach and let it go.

CANCER: SIX OF SWORDS RX

You're having trouble moving forward, no matter what your heart tells you. Riding the waves with regret will lead you back to your previous destination. It's time to cut the cords loose and find your freedom before things get ugly.

LEO: KNIGHT OF WANDS

Dramatic and fiery, you're willing to take it up a notch for this month. You may be asked to lead a difficult project that requires your expertise. It's a good time to revolutionize and reform a stagnant situation into a positive outcome. 

VIRGO:  SIX OF CUPS

The warmer weather will entice you on remembering the good days. However, it may bring up some memories that you may find hard to let go of. Take the time to reflect on the good from a previous situation. Find a way to bring something old and make it modern. 

LIBRA: THREE OF WANDS RX

You may be faced in burning bridges along the way. Whether if it's from family or friends, you might have seen an uglier side of their personalities. It's okay to put yourself first in the sense of maintaining your integrity and sanity. 

SCORPIO: ACE OF WANDS RX

You're normally a calculated individual. However, this month may test you on some unexpected invitations and situations that'll require a greater escape. Some moths can go into the flame, but now is the time to not get burned. Avoid being thrown under the bus. 

SAGITTARIUS: FIVE OF PENTACLES

A difficult time in terms of finances and business transactions. You may have lost a potential deal or discovered some fradulent happening regarding your relationships with others. You can rise above this by realizing what you can salvage and where to trim the fat. 

CAPRICORN: THREE OF SWORDS

Nothing sucks more than potential heartbreak. A cold sense of detachment and indifference may be the theme for this month. While you may feel there's nothing left to give, you have the opportunity to learn your difficult lessons as a way to seek a better relationship with yourself and to others. 

AQUARIUS: NINE OF SWORDS

Normally, some things won't affect you. However, your patience will be tested this month. You may find yourself internalizing on a lot of emotions and not showing on the surface. It's a good time to seek counsel from others who have been in the same boat as you.

PISCES: KNIGHT OF SWORDS RX

You may be tripping up on communicating your thoughts in an effective manner. There is a sense of low self-esteem and ego driven goals that may get in the way of having fruitful relationships. It's a good time to filter out your thoughts and know how to approach a situation tactfully.

Udderly Zen: Monthly Intuitive Reading for June 2017

Hola my moo-tiful people! I hope that the previous month have treated you udderly well 🐮

My dear pet cow Betsy decided that she wanted more variety and spice. She almost threw up the cards in the air for a sign. For this month, I will be using the Sacred India Tarot by Yogi Impressions and our three oracle decks Sensory Oracle, NYC Vintage Subway Wanderlust Oracle and Persona Femina Oracle (you can purchase our decks here). Looking at the cards below, anticipate some emotional and transitional changes for the course of the month.

Let us moo-ve into the reading! 

For the beginning of the month, we have Death.  There are different variations of the Death card in multiple decks. For the Sacred India Tarot, there are two versions of the Death card.  For this reading, it's represented as Kali Ma.  Not only she is a fierce warrior, but she is a catalyst in bringing out hope from a dire situation. That's not to say she's an easy goddess to work with. Still, the Death card promises that for the first portion of the month will be filled of massive changes. I get the sense that we’ll be looking towards on the aesthetics when making certain adjustments on our appearance, career and relationships.  Of course, what follows suit in the physical changes will result in a shift of our mentalities. You may adopt certain habits that weren’t there in the first place. The outcome of what occurs in the first portion will be geared towards a mature sense of understanding our livelihood.  

For the middle of the month, we have The Hanged Man. Represented as Trishanku (a king who wanted to be part of the heavens with his human body), we are forced to look back in our decisions and reflect on our choices. It may be seen as a karmic moment.  Sometimes, we can be so focused on wanting something bad without realizing the consequences of our actions.  I don’t necessarily feel there’s a sense of martyrdom for this middle portion of the month. However, I truly believe that we need to assess our own limitations in what we do with our lives. We may come into conflict of some illusions that were either established by others or within ourselves.  

For the end of the month, we have the King of Lotuses (Cups). Represented as Pradyumna (son of Krishna and father of Aniruddha), we see here that it matches up with the vibe as we enter Cancer season. The Lotuses suite is a representation of water, just like the element that is under the zodiac sign. At this point, we will be entering Summer Soltice. Romantically speaking, it can be a reminder on not becoming complacent when dealing with your partner. You may be inclined on being supportive, but don’t be surprised if you want to do so remotely. There’s no shame in conserving your energy for a greater purpose.

Astrology Aspects for June 2017

  • Mars in Cancer 6/4
  • Venus in Taurus 6/6
  • Mercury in Gemini 6/6
  • Jupiter direct 6/9
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius 6/9
  • Neptune Rx 6/16
  • Sun in Cancer 6/21
  • Litha/Summer Solstice 6/21
  • Mercury in Cancer 6/21
  • New Moon In Cancer 6/23
  • Pallas in Taurus 6/26

Lessons from the Oracle

In retrospect for the month of June, we have "Flow", "You Are Not Alone" and "Emotional Procrastination." Since most of the aspects will be falling under Cancer, we do anticipate some emotional lessons in terms of control.  We may be faced with situations that no matter how thoughtfully planned out, some hidden variables will be made to light. That’s not to say we have to become indifferent. Rather, take a better understanding that our emotions can be easily controlled if we have the willpower and support from others. It’s always good to reach out to others who are in the same boat as you. Never keep it bottled inside. Take the time to let your feelings be known.  

I hope you enjoyed my monthly reading! What do you anticipate for the month of June to provide? Let me know in the comments 😃

New Moon in Gemini: Tarot Spell To Find A Supportive Tribe

Geminis usually have a bad reputation on being the sneakiest and dishonest group of the zodiac. Not quite so! Though they may exhibit the twins, that doesn’t mean they’re bad folks. My experience with Geminis have been great. Many of my mentors and friends fall under this whimsical sign. Geminis are known to be quick witted, social butterflies and intellectual.  They can provide an awesome conversation, thanks to their ruling planet in Mercury.

I will be using the Magician and the Lovers card for this spell. Both of them fall under the ruling planet of Mercury. Not to mention, the Lovers card is the zodiac association for Gemini. I think that for many of us, finding a supportive group (whether if it’s for mothers, craft makers, spiritual, etc.) can be difficult. And that’s because we want to feel accepted and not treated like the elephant in the room.  

If you’ve been struggling in finding a supportive group and feeling low in confidence, try out my spell under this phase. Keep in mind that things don’t work overnight. Stay positive, persistent and set your intentions to a higher vibration.

You will need

  • Magician and the Lovers cards (deck from your own choice)

  • Paper poppet

  • Art supplies (i.e. coloring pencils, markers, gems, strings, glue, etc.)

  • Jasmine Oil

  • One piece of jewelry (can be a ring, bracelet, earrings necklace, etc.)

Directions

  • Take a pair of scissors and cut the shape of a human poppet. It can be either small or large.

  • Using your art supplies, decorate your poppet. As you’re dressing up your creation, think of the ways you want to draw in on your supportive tribe. For example, you can draw hearts to indicate a loving group. Or you can write affirmations on what you’re looking for when finding your tribe. For example, you can say “My tribe is filled with joy and appreciation.” Get creative!

  • Once you’re done decorating your poppet, take the tarot cards. Place the cards on opposite ends, with the poppet in the middle.

  • Take some jasmine oil and rub it in your hands. With your piece of jewelry, cup it in your hands and let the jasmine oil infuse with your item.  Close your eyes and meditate. Imagine that you’re surrounded by a supportive tribe that you created.  Take note of your feelings - do you feel happy? Are you relaxed?

  • Once you feel relaxed, recite the following:

    I am social and free
    I attract those who complete me
    I now cast this spell on my charm
    With everything good and no harm

     

  • Keep the poppet at an area that is visible wherever you go.  You can choose to frame the poppet or keep it safe where it won’t be disturbed by others.  Whenever you’re attending a social group, be sure to wear your jewelry piece to help bring forth confidence when you meet others. Don’t forget to thank your spirit guides for assisting you!

    I hope you like this spell! Let me know what you think in the comments below.
