This week I’m reading with the Sui Generis Lenormand by Ciro Marchetti. This is an exquisite deck with 8 extra cards. For more information on this deck or Ciro’s other Lenormand or Tarot decks and reading cloths: https://www.ciromarchetti.com/
I shuffled the deck and pulled three cards for our weekly message. All three were the “extra” cards in the deck. I was going to reshuffle to see if a few traditional cards came up but decided this is what wanted to come through.
Our cards and message: 37 Time, 40 Compass, 39 Dice.
Decisions time, chart your own course, take a chance! Where are we going with the time we have available to us with a playful nature as our new season is here. This line of three takes me back to dreamy summer days and nights when I was young, spending time playing board games. Which direction will I go with the roll of the dice was always exciting. I felt I had all the time in the world to dream and play. As time has passed, I’m more tuned into the directions and choices I make. I take comfort in knowing I can always course correct and sometimes roll the dice to take chances along the way.
As Time is always a factor in life; it’s what we do with it that counts especially in our new season. We all have the same 24 hours. The first thing we want to consider is where we are going. The Compass helps find our bearings especially in a new season. Throwing the dice is a game and can indicate taking a playful approach. Some approaches are more risky but life can be a crap shoot too, yes? What risks are we willing to take this week?

The Magic of a New Season, the Sun enters Cancer, New Moon and Solar Eclipse this weekend! This is Cancer season in the Zodiac; home is where the heart is. It’s a time to love and care for each other. We yearn for this more than ever. With New Moons we make wishes. Our Cancer Moon and Solar Eclipse in the North Node offers up opportunities, brings up emotions; eclipses shift energy. What is our desire and what magic wants to come through at this time? Hold space and time for the sacred things, the mysteries of life. Ask for support and give generously.
Our card for these cosmic events! Ace of Wands – “Wands signify the desire for growth, the inspiration that moves things, the desire that leads the way…” Mary K. Greer from the Witches Tarot Companion.
The ground is fertile. The magical hawthorn flowers bring new ideas, creativity and protection. If you’re looking for a sign, this is it. New beginnings; seeing our dreams blossoming. It’s our work to nurture, care and bring them to harvest. Potency and power is felt in this Ace of Fire. The castle in the background offers us faith, hope and the will to persevere. Card from the Witches Tarot, Ellen Dugan, Artist, Mark Evans
The Witches Runes, Bird, Waves, Gateway, Sun. Sometimes in the waves of change we find our true direction. News of change to our current flow will bring opportunities but we will be called on to take action and surf some waves. Using our will and focus will guide us across the threshold into the light. All these symbols are about movement, action and light like our Ace of Wands!
Until we meet again, friends, strangers, young, old, near, far, may you be safe, may you be happy, may you be well.

This week I’m reading with the sTEAmpunk Tea Leaf Fortune Telling Cards by Karin Dalton-Smith published by Animal Dreaming Publishing. This is a delightful and excellent working deck which won two 2019 CARTA awards from the International Tarot Foundation. Here is a link to Karin’s Etsy site: TeaWithKarin
I shuffled and randomly pulled four cards, Heart, Castle and Eye for our message this week with one additional shadow card from the bottom of the deck, the Book.
The Heart and Castle are auspicious cards when they come together which speak to us of success around passions especially in our work or careers that we love. In relationships, whether they are with lovers, friends or people in our work sphere, the Heart and Castle show the potential of a successful relationship. The Arrow on the Heart is not pointed to a specific card, so look to the past for lessons that can be helpful in this present relationship. Venus is in Retrograde until June 24th so this is a time to step back and look at what we truly value, are passionate about and be in tune with how we communicate, asking for what we need and really listening to others. This helps us understand relationships much better. In finance, pay attention to not only our short-term goals but long-term ones also. Don’t let emotions alone rule your decisions. The Eye whispers to us to pay attention to our intuition this week in all matters of life. This is a card of protection. Take time to see beyond appearances.
The Shadow card is the Book,. The planet Mercury is in its shadow period beginning its Retrograde in Cancer on June 17th. The Book brings us more information throughout the week to add to our decisions, direction and something more to consider. There may be additional studying or curiosity needed for our passion project or in relationships. Open and compassionate communication can open up hearts. For finances, looking at our assets, which is just not money but other assets, our talents, skills, background and the ability to tap into the collective unconscious which can aid us pursuing our dreams. Contracts and agreements need to be carefully looked over and protected this week and the weeks to come.
It’s my Mother’s Birthday on June 18th and in remembrance, her Fan broach with little twinkling sapphires and pearls is pinned to my reading cloth. Sapphire is a stone of wisdom and prophecy bringing good fortune and protection for those wearing it. Pearls signify sincerity, good luck and wisdom gained through experience; inspires integrity and purity. Our Fan’s message is be curious and flirt with the things that call to us this week. And most of all, don’t hid behind the shadows, be Seen.
Big love in the week ahead!

With Aces being early days, this Ace was first seen on the table of the Magician. The Ace of Pentacles holds seeds of possibilities, a gift for us this week and asks us what we will do with this gift. Last week’s Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse was an invitation to step over the threshold. In this card we see an arched gateway with a red door wide open. The hand that holds the pentacle shows us “Magic is at hand.” – Sasha Graham from the Dark Wood Tarot – Art by Abigail Larson
I pulled a piece from my found object pouch; the broken shell came out. This week begins a healing in broken places. The Winged Spirits and Angels’ promise is to hold us up, while we hold each other up as healing takes place.

Today we experience a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius, one of the first of 3 eclipses! There is a
Solar Eclipse on June 21st and Lunar Eclipse July 4th.
Eclipses reveal new opportunities to do things differently. Full moons illuminate so we can see how things really are and with eclipses, endings and releasing.
The card I pulled for us is “Clean It Up” with the Bee Witches Rune. It’s time to do the hard work of cleaning up the areas of our life that have been cluttered to free our mind, body, physical areas and spirit. This frees us to move forward. The Bee as our Ally with this card encourages us not only to being willing to do the hard work but working as a team, community with cooperation. We are not in this alone. This will clear the way for miracles to enter.
With the events around the World and here in the US, we can’t go back to the way things were. Sagittarius gives us hope, examining our beliefs, what are our values. Eclipses give us opportunities to shift, open the door or a window on life, the past and the future a little wider to really see. They also are good times to release patterns we no longer desire or serving us in our internal and external World.
This Full Moon asks us to take some time to reflect,

“If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer. If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!” Shel Silverstein

“Step out of the circle of time and into the circle of love.” – Rumi
Card of the Day – The Lovers – Card of the Month-February – Queen Alice Tarot by Dame Darcy. February 2020 (2/2020) is a 6 Universal month in Numerology (2+2+2=6) the Lovers Card in Tarot. Partnerships, romantic love, altruistic love, balance & choices. The man in the card represents our daily mind, the self conscious. The woman the subconscious mind, intuitive, feeling nature. The Butterfly where the Angel resides in traditional Tarot, the superconscious, divine mind, transcending human consciousness, unlimited.
The energy of this day & month is self-care, loving our inner child. Ask for what you need. A good time to incubate ideas. The energy of the 6 is magnetic. The code for the year and month is a 4*6. 4 (2020) & 6 universal month for Feb.; create a balance in life while working on your goals.
A side note: Mercury starts it’s shadow period today before it goes retrograde on Feb. 16th – March 9th. Often old partners, loves or friends can reach out or try to reconnect at this time. Discernment is important. Communication, messages can go sideways, feelings and thoughts can create an inner conflict. So a heads up can give us a pause to come from a place of thoughtful response rather than a quick reaction.
The Lovers, ruled by curious Gemini, the Element of Air, Gemini’s phrase is “I Think”. Integrating our female & male energies.
