Intuitive Coaching–Favorite Card Decks (and some personal history)

DSCN1346

 

My journey into card reading began in the early 1990s when I visited a hole-in-the-wall spiritual shop in the Public Market in Seattle. This was my first exposure to tarot cards. And my first official tarot reading happened in the basement of the public market in 1992 when a friend recommended a tarot reader to me.

He had a table set up in a hallway of the market. It felt like walking a maze to find this reader. I remember that he was somewhat older than me, probably in his late 30s and he had a beard which reminded me of a character from the Rider Waite deck.

At the time of that reading, I was leaving stable employment because the work environment had caused an illness for me. And I remember the card reader telling me that I would learn a craft or skill that I could do from home to pay my bills. The only freelancing I performed prior that time was as a rock musician and as a rock music journalist–neither of which paid my bills.

For many years after receiving this reader’s advice, I honed skills I could do from home, never seriously imagining that I would become an astrologer and card reader myself. I was deeply co-dependent at that time that I would give my power away to card readers and astrologers. And I also developed an addiction to card readings which I constantly gave to my self. Not that I was the only one addicted to divination tools because I knew of another woman addicted to I Ching. She wouldn’t make any decision without first going OCD with her coins.

My first decks were oracle cards and then in 1994, I bought my first tarot deck, a tiny Rider Waite deck. Since I did become addicted to my oracle cards and tarot cards, I ended up destroying one deck (Russian Gypsy oracle cards) and I sold my other decks. But then, years later, I started reading from Hay House decks. And I gained maturity and wisdom that caused me to act more responsibly with my decks. I have around 30 decks at this time. I am considering culling the decks.

With all my experience with the cards, I know when I have a winner as far as decks are concerned. A winning deck for me gives me clear and immediate responses to my questions and the inquiries of my clients. And the two most powerful decks among the 30 decks (this is an approximate number because some of my decks are in storage), are both by psychic-medium Sandra Anne Taylor.

This includes the Akashic Tarot by Taylor and her sister Anne Klingler and the Energy Oracle cards. I also want to say that I had quick readings from the two sisters back when I listened to Hay House Radio (around 2013) and I can vouch for their integrity and passion for their work. These sisters won’t ever veer off course and switch religions on us and then tell us to never use their decks again. We are in no danger there (we all know who I’m referring to).

And this is important since card decks range from $14 to $30. And with this current economy, so we want to purchase the most accurate decks created by teachers and psychics with integrity and a sense of humanity. Not only that, if you visit any new age shop, you’ll be faced with choosing a deck from literally walls and shelves of decks. And this is not to say that the decks that work for me will be perfect for you. We’re all different representing diverse energies.

So, first, I give you my top five decks. And then I’ll give tips on choosing the right decks for you.

My 5 Favorite Decks

  1. Energy Oracle by Sandra Anne Taylor
  2. Akashic Tarot by Sandra Anne Taylor and Anne Klingler
  3. Morgan-Greer by Bill Greer
  4. The wisdom of the Oracle by Colette Baron Reid
  5. The Good Tarot by Colette Baron Reid

 

Tips for Choosing the Right Card Deck

  1. Look up card decks online (and if possible do sample reads)
  2. Check out decks at new age shops (do sample reads with the cards)
  3. Hold the box of cards next to your heart and see if they resonate with you
  4. Watch card reading videos on YouTube and on Facebook (and other social media)
  5. Visit publishers of card deck sites (and do sample reads if possible)
  6. Look for images that speak to your heart
  7. Read the biographies of the card creators (do they resonate with you?)
  8. See which decks keep showing up with synchronicity
  9. Choose decks that appear in your dreams

If you are already a professional card reader you realize the importance of choosing the right decks. The cards should perform well with your intuitive gifts and reading or divination style. You should never have to sit with the cards for long periods (more than five minutes) without images, sensations, or words appearing. And we must feel comfortable or at-home with the deck.

I have a few dud decks in my collection which I only keep because I enjoy the artwork on the cards. Remember if the intention of the creator of the cards was just to sell a deck as entertainment or as if it were a book and not a magical tool then the deck won’t perform well. Some decks are only made for collectors and other decks are fine novelties but useless for working with clients. I have an astrology card deck which has trickster energy. It’s a beautiful deck but useless with my work. If only I had followed my own advice for choosing decks!

And one last word of advice, decide what type of energy you want to work with. Is it angel energy, fairy energy, Gaia energy, the Divine Feminine energy, unicorns or dragons? Once you determine that part, you narrow down your choices making it much easier to acquire your perfect card deck.

Intuitive Coaching 101: Finding Magic in Every Day

purple poppy 1

 

The difference between some old and some new souls is that older souls see beauty in both the profound and the mundane. An old soul sees the stars in a leaf or an apple. The old soul finds chunks of Jasper and quartz in gravel or beach rocks. And the old soul feels the powerful communication coming from the natural kingdoms.

And it’s good that us old souls see and sense this magic in everyday situations because otherwise we would grow bored with life on this planet quickly. Old souls don’t care about the lives of celebrities or follow their local or national sports teams as if it is a fever they want to catch. In fact, it is the very attitude of communicating with the natural world and seeing the bigger picture that sets old souls apart.

And since they realize the people around them aren’t seeing the world in Technicolor, they opt to spend time alone or they lose themselves in fantasies of meeting people just like them.

So, what are some of the ways old souls find magic in their everyday experiences?

  • They enjoy strolls alone or with a dog companion
  • They love the various architecture and structures in their communities
  • They enjoy photography and other art forms
  • They enjoy hiking, kayaking, and other outdoor activities
  • They know where their food comes from and enjoy growing it
  • They know their totem and power animals
  • They identify with Indigenous cultures
  • They are rock hounds or gem specialists
  • They collect feathers, leaves, acorns, and pinecones
  • They are metaphysical (even if they don’t tell you)
  • They have vivid past life memories as Indigenous people
  • They are often healers or shamans (even if they don’t know it yet)
  • They often feel like they don’t fit in with their family or community
  • They enjoy traveling
  • They would feel at home in a trailer, yurt, tiny house, cabin or rustic cottage (or tree house)
  • They are tree huggers and animal advocates
  • They use plant medicine
  • They are on a quest for wisdom

AND THEY HOLD THE LIGHT

If you believe that you are an old soul, start cultivating the above activities and reach out to others who also have those interests and practices. Build your own community where you show up authentically and enjoy mutual love and reaspect.

I am a teacher, coach and astrologer who is also an old soul. Sign up for readings at Whole Astrology. I would be happy to work with you.

Planet Alert—Jupiter Transits into Sagittarius in November 2018

renaissance universe

 

On November 8, 2018, Jupiter transits into its own sign, Sagittarius. This is big news despite Jupiter changing signs every 12 months because both Jupiter and Sagittarius rule “big” through their expansiveness and even hyperbole associated with Sagittarius.

Since Sagittarius rules religion, the legal system, higher education (academic), the world stage, foreign travel, ethnic groups, ideologies, philosophy, and foreign languages as in long-distance communication, we can expand all of those areas or we exaggerate them. So we get the giantic house, the gigantic car, the supersize meal and that sort of thing. Sarcasm also becomes the norm and can be quite hurtful for the more sensitive types of people.

Improv comedy sees its heyday again. And everyone thinks that they are hilarious even when they are actually blunt and hurtful at times. And while you would think that Jupiter in Sagittarius would promote tolerance it could actually does the opposite. Remember the intolerance of different ethnic groups and religious affiliations that surfaced when Saturn was in Sagittarius? While Saturn restricted behaviors and the expression of beliefs, Jupiter will create heated situations where people feel ridiculed or attacked. Remember the French movie, Ridicule?

Since Jupiter expands what it touches, racism and other forms of intolerance could actually explode in our faces. And for those of you who work as new age or alternative spiritual teachers, coaches, or channels, you could actually become the target of religious zealots or people coming after you with legal suits. This is not a warning to tell you to switch careers. Keep going and keep the faith in what you are doing if you are honest and teaching with integrity. Charlatans will get flushed out at during this 12-month Jupiter transit. And we already see Pope Francis, a Sagittarius, being called to the carpet about sexual abuse that took place among Catholic clergy.

So, expect top religious figures to come under scrutiny too. But if you are a new age practitioner or you just dabble in metaphysics, find your center and grounding so that you are not tossed off course by cyber and other bullies. Jupiter in Sagittarius could end up resembling a witch hunt, but if you heal your triggers around shame and guilt, you will ride the storm unscathed. This is the Jupiter in Sagittarius initiation. And it is a baptism by fire.

Between now and November 8, work on the following so that you keep your faith in yourself alive and don’t toss in the towel due to snarky trolls who in most cases have a bark that is worse than the bite.

  • Heal your core issues around guilt and shame
  • Do your forgiveness work now
  • Keep your ego in check
  • Delve into the true reason you do your work
  • Be honest with yourself and don’t take any spiritual shortcuts
  • Walk your talk
  • Don’t bring up topics you have no personal experience with unless you are a journalist interviewing an expert
  • Go deeper into your personal and academic education
  • Get credentials if you need them
  • Put together a support team of people you can trust
  • Set strong boundaries and use discernment
  • Avoid sacarcasm with clients and viewers of your videos
  • Don’t make exaggerated claims and check your facts
  • Don’t fight back online with bullies (report or flag them instead)
  • Take death threats seriously and report them to authorities (instead of joking about them or making public comments about them)
  • Refrain from acting like a victim (this causes more bullying)
  • Don’t leave provocative comments on other people’s videos (this could upset a bully who decides to follow you)
  • If you feel a need to block someone from your feed or channel, do it immediately
  • Do regular introspective checks on yourself to make sure you are in integrity with your work

Spiritual Essay on Faith

woman-645705_1920

 

Faith is believing in what you can’t see or experience yet. It is believing in potential of light during the darkest of times.

I encountered faith often when I lived between homes. And while I cannot speak for millions of homeless people who sleep on couches of strangers and friends; I cannot speak for people who live in cars or run down trailers or on the street or in shelters, faith plays a role in all of our lives.

When I lost a studio apartment on September 1, 2015 (which launched a year of living in attics, basements, and hotel rooms), I nearly suffocated from chlorine bleach fumes at a hotel in Bellingham. The next day when I woke up, waves of nausea and a migraine greeted me. My eyes and throat burned throughout the night. I had yet to buy a cell phone and I was experiencing difficulties with my laptop.

But even though I could barely gag down half a container of yogurt while I tried to get a hold of a woman renting out a temporary apartment, I experienced faith that everything would work out for the time being. And people were helpful, including the concierge at the hotel who offered to have someone drive me to the storage unit so I could drop off my belongings. And the woman with the apartment for rent picked me up downtown to take me to the residence.

After a shower and a long-night’s rest, I woke up feeling like myself again. Hope returned as I responded to more housing ads, ate a good breakfast, and took a walk around the Columbia Neighborhood—where I hoped to find a home at that time. Oddly, I did end up living for several months in that neighborhood in another temporary apartment rented to me by a kind family.

But there were times when I had to find a different place to sleep each night and these periods stretched for one or two weeks. I took out my Energy Oracle cards and asked where I would sleep that particular night and I never slept on a street or in a shelter. As much as I ranted and complained about lack of housing, something always came through for me, almost miraculously and I practiced gratitude more often than I ranted-though my gratitude was silent and my rants were loud on social media.

Faith is not the absence of fear or doubt. Faith comes when we face our fears and move forward even if that means leaping into the void. I’m not alone because most people have faced taking leaps of faith—homeless people and people recovering from illness do this every moment of the day. No one really knows where they are heading or what appears on the trail up ahead. No one predicts the Dark Night of the Soul or when initiations show up in their lives.

To an extent, our thoughts matter because they shape our emotions which eventually carve out our lives. Many spiritual teachers claim that we can start over again at any time, but most of us grapple with this concept. We feel that we really blew it. That no one will give us a second chance, but faith will give us many chances.

Faith comes from the Zodiac Signs Pisces and Sagittarius. And these signs tell us to go with the flow and to expand our consciousness. They focus on the invisible realms mainly or step in and out of dreams. If we can imagine it, we can create it, for these are creative signs on the Zodiac Wheel.

I’m not big on Abraham Hicks any longer nor do I prefer to focus on healing from narcissist abuse videos any longer either (two ends of the spectrum). Whether or not I suffer from PTSD matters so much any longer since it’s time to journey past any label or diagnosis and replace it with the faith that I am in the right place and in the right way.

The truth lies somewhere in between new age thought and psychological disorders. Yesterday I met a woman on a bus and then I spoke to her on the ferry. She seemed stuck on a mental health label despite her obvious inner beauty and creative gifts. I sat on my hands even though I wanted to coach her to explore her gifts and to stop focusing on her diagnosis which left her feeling stuck. And perhaps, people have felt the same way about me and other creative and beautiful people.

Diagnosis on one hand, have the power to set us free if we choose to empower ourselves through a healing process. However, on the other hand, diagnosis can also keep people feeling stuck because they project that they are undeserving and that they are faulty goods, when in almost every case, the opposite scenario is true.

We all face challenges. For some people that is recovering from addictions and for others, it is finding a home and meaningful employment and yet for others, it is recovering their entire life. All this is possible through faith because when we step into the unknown, we are the ones who manifest miracles.

The Practice: Journaling the Twin Flame

twin-flames-2548406_1920Your life can change in an instant when you experience an inspired moment set in motion by another creative person. Not long ago, when I was at the Dollar Tree looking through books published several years ago (now selling for a dollar), I found Nick Bantock’s graphic novel, “The Pharos Gate” which is number 7 in a series.

The novel features a twin flame relationship with the story told through a letters and postcards. The book actually features 3-dimensional postcards and letters that you hold in your hands as you read them. And the author-artist works mainly with collage and handwriting.

I found a collection of crafty postcards next to the novel and I bought those too. I figured I was experiencing synchronicity that sparked my creativity. And then, after reading Nick’s novel (took around 30 minutes), I pulled out a lovely journal I had bought recently, my paper supplies, and I set out to write my own twin flame book, a memoir, and not a novel. And I do this through letter writing to my twin flame (who I have only met telepathically).

I feel vulnerable mentioning this secret project to you. However, as we walk through the portals now and shift our consciousness, I believe that journaling to a twin flame or a spirit guide provides a positive outlet and an antidote to the darkness and chaos in the world. It’s really no different than Neal Donald Walsch’s conversations with a higher being (God).

The Law of Attraction teachers (the real ones not the ones steeped in greed and exploitation) tell us that we attract through focus. So, if we only focus on the negative or toxic news of the day then we attract more of the same. And then we wonder why we lack a true partnership in our life or a successful career or a joyful spiritual path. We really are at a crossroads and each of us has to decide whether we wish to partake in the Earth’s gifts or wallow in self-punishment because we believe that it is our duty to take on the darkness of the world. That’s co-dependent behavior, folks.

We heal the dysfunctional world by healing our dysfunctional selves. We are only responsible for our own healing. We cannot make choices for others and perhaps, the twin flame doesn’t show up until we ride the frequency of joy. At least, that is how it is for me.

So, when we are faced with tragic situations there are two questions we must ask ourselves:

What belief do I harbor that aligns me with this situation or person?

AND…

Am I able to surrender this situation or person with love to the Creator for their highest good?

Then you can ask the Creator or your guides or your Higher Self what role you can play in the situation that would actually help the person or situation without sucking you dry in the process. You need your energy and vitality for life on this planet so don’t give it away.

Surround yourself in a pillar of light. Surround the person or situation in the pillar of light. And then, move forward. Go back to your manifestation of happiness and joy in your life. Return to your healing path knowing that when you clear your path and heal your soul, this healing ripples out.

And sometimes, (as I gleaned from Nick’s novel), that light return to you as shadows and dark people. Breathe light into it. And ask your guides to protect and guide you through it. The more light we shine, the more shadows we experience. The trick is not to get caught in it.

So, back to the twin flame journal. You only require paper, stickers, a colored pen, and a journal. You also need glue, tape, and scissors (I tear the paper for a better effect). And check out Nick Bantock’s series on Chronicle Books. You might even check used bookstores and the Dollar Tree for the novels.

Then choose a time of day where you can sit in quiet contemplation to write your letteres and postcards for your journal. You might even light two candles representing the twin flames. You can include gemstones, flower essences, and essential oils too. Do whatever works best for you. And enjoy the process and the journey.

Season of Leo–Let Your Inner Child Play!

lion-3012515_1920

 

First, I want to mention that I have been absent from Word Press due to a thumb injury that has lasted for two+ months. But at least for today, I’m back because Archangel Metatron has a message about allowing the inner child to play.

He says that adults are taking life to seriously these days and that seriousness which surfaces in worry, doubt, cynicism, too much analytical thinking lowers the vibration on the planet. This seriousness causes stress for the Earth and the creatures upon the Earth. So, during this time of the playful Lion, let’s head to the metaphorical playground or at least get out some thick children’s crayons and have some fun.

Here are a few suggestions Metatron has for us:

Buy a bottle of blowing bubbles and carry them in your backpack. Then at impromptu times get the bottle out and blow some bubbles. And look who shows up.

Color in a children’s coloring book.

Play cards with a children’s deck of cards with your friends

Cook a meal with big food such as making a soup with large chunks of vegetables or make a salad with whole vegetables (such as radishes, baby carrots, sweet peppers, and peas)

Go for a day hike without any electronic devices and rediscover the natural world

Collect shells and stones on a beach

Photograph a city scape or your friends with a children’s camera

Play with puppies or kittens

Visit a small pet store

Organize a play group for adults and head to a playground, zoo, or amusement park

Watch a children’s movie

Play music

Dance

Go camping (low-tech style)

The list goes on. Metatron says that this is the season to get creative and play around with crafts and art too. And in the theme of not taking ourselves seriously, make things for the sake of fun and not to sell them or hang them in a gallery. The sloppier the better, says Metatron.

Make a collage or finger paint and then hang your work on your refrigerator. And if you have gold stars, stick a few on to your work. And write, “Good job.”

So, get off the couch (and away from the TV), hook a leash on the dog, and get out and play!

Mercury RX coming up in two weeks

330px-Andrea_Vaccaro_-_David_with_the_Head_of_Goliath

 

I will only be giving eclipse and Natal Chart readings (and pediatric astrology) readings during the Mercury RX period which last from July 26 until August 19, 2018.

This is because when I’ve given transit reports during a Mercury RX they turned out wonky. I have a strong Natal Mercury and Natal Neptune so when Mercury goes RX it has a strong affect on my mind when looking ahead.

I am now two weeks out on astrology readings and it’s almost three weeks. If you would like a hybrid report, it’s best to wait until after August 19. However, if you have already signed up, I will do my best to complete those reports prior to the Mercury RX.

Otherwise, from July 26 to August 19, feel free to sign up for a Natal Chart reading, a partner chart, pediatric astrology (natal) or card readings.

Thank you.

Time of Radical Spiritual Warriors

angel-3026517_1920We spiritual warriors have our work cut out for us. First, we start with healing our inner child so that we respond instead of react to life and world circumstances. And we have many modalities at our disposal to do this work. I will let you research those modalities and choose what is right for you.

Second, we need to research the various threats from chem trails, to GMO foods, to Smart Meters (and they go by other names), high speed internet 5G or higher, cell towers, and other threats to our health and the environment.

Third, we must calmly gather as we collect and share this information and then send letters to our political and global leaders. If they insist on supporting the dangerous status quo then it is time to vote younger people into office to don’t follow party lines or scratch the backs of large corportations and the power elite (I don’t even like using this word, but for a better word, there it is).

The main thing is we need to educate ourselves, share factual information without hysterics tied to it and then to prepare to sacrifice what we take for granted such as having electricity running through our houses. For instance, the best way to not cooperate with electric companies that force Smart Meters on private homes especially is to go off grid.

The best way not to give GMO food companies any power is to go vegan, organic and to cook from scratch with whole ingredients. You say that you don’t have time to do this, well, soon you will because the economy isnt stable. And people will also join together to form new communities, share with each other, and grow food together. Farms are about to get a lot smaller and more community-oriented thanks to Uranus in the sign of Taurus for the next 7 years.

Also, with Mars in Aquarius (for 6 months in 2018) we need to take a good look at where our electricity comes from and the power that electrical companies hold over us, pun intended. How can we go off grid? How can we get our needs met without allowing others to destroy our health and well-being? How do we protect the most vulnerable from EMFs?

And with Uranus in Taurus, we have new revolutionary ways to create power for our homes but watch out for utility companies telling us that Smart Meter and digital meter technology will save us money. It won’t. That will be safe for our health. It is not (even the Cancer Society which is conservative, says that there is a chance that these meters could emit radiation that could cause cancer). And the power companies will tell us that this new digital technology is good for the environment. It is not. Don’t be fooled. The only entity that benefits is the energy companies.

Watch out for fake science and remember the phrase, “follow the money.” Follow your intuition more than ever. Invest in protective devices, gemstones, and flower essences that protect you from EMF and other environmental pollution. Spend more time on the natural earth and spend more time outdoors and less time inside on a computer (like I’m doing now).

I’ll produce podcasts on this topic in the future but for now, do your research and protect your health. We matter. The Earth matters and your loved ones matter.
