Once again, I can’t seem to keep my social media feeds straight! Back at Imbolc, I did my usual three card reading for the energies we needed to be aware of as we move from one seasonal marker to the other. This time, I did the reading for my Youtube Channel. Yes, I’ve been spending a bit more time there, more on that in a bit.
Below is the full reading done with dowsing rods. This reading picks up where the Winter Solstice to Imbolc reading left off, which is coming out of the murky, misty and confusing feel of the Moon card. However, the energy ramping towards the Full Moon is extremely positive. Give it a look and listen and let me know your thoughts!
I don’t like to run these readings too far out from the actual date of the event. I find that the further away from the event in time the higher the chance the reading will be off. “Always in motion is the future,” said a wise, green goblin in a swamp. This time I cut it a little close and then ran into some technical issues so that the video didn’t make it up until an hour or more AFTER the event of the New Moon had started. Bah!
So, I’ve learned from my lessons and will try to afford a bit more of a cushion next time!
This one’s got a lot of energy behind it. I think you’ll understand when you watch it. This is the reading that will carry us out of the energy of the Moon card from the Winter Solstice reading, into Imbolc and beyond. It will be interesting to see how this one jives up with the upcoming reading for Imbolc.
Spring is coming!
I seem to be about a few days behind getting this up and out to all of you. My apologies! This is the third reading for the period of time discussed in the previous post; Winter Solstice to Imbolc. We appear to have some honest and earthy work cut out for us over the next few weeks.
I am trying to decide if I should continue to keep the parts of my work with the pendulum over the cards. It is sometimes difficult to have it so one can see the pendulum and the cards and the angle can be obstructive to the actual reading. Perhaps a change in camera angle? Do you find it too boring? As always, I’m curious to hear your thoughts!
I took a break with the opening of the New Year to recharge my batteries a bit. I’ve been moving forward on my goals (and assignments from my favorite Goddess of War) and one of those is to create more videos for the Youtube channel. First of all, I’ve decided to continue with the Moon Phase readings over the entirety of this year as well as taking part in the Pagans of Youtube Challenge. More on that in the future.
I’ve been mulling over an idea for some time and this afternoon it finally dawned on me how to present it. As a new card reader I would often “fire and forget” my readings. Having acquired the information I would then move along and forget the implication of the reading instead of “layering” the old reading into the energy of the new reading. It’s a beginner’s mistake but over time I did begin to do this. As I grew more experienced I became interested in how the energies of one reading could and would blend into another, especially if two or more readings occupied the same temporal time space like, for instance, from the Winter Solstice to Imbolc.
This afternoon I struck upon an idea of how to show how my recent moon phase readings work and interact with the longer Solstice to Imbolc time period. I couldn’t find any other videos really discussing it and so, after some quick sketches and ideas coming forward at lunch, I was able to make the video this evening.
Enjoy! I look forward to your thoughts and comments.
More to come!
It’s finally time for 2016 to be over. For me this year has been entirely about transition. From constantly getting the Journey card of the Wildwood (Death), to moving, to re-finding my magical self and struggling with the loss of ole models and new political paradigms. It’s definitely been a year of challenges but it has also been a year of immense growth.
Currently, it’s the New Moon and this energy is what will carry us forward into the beginning of 2017. Below, in the video I continue my moon phase readings for the time period between the New Moon and the Full Moon in January.
This reading was particularly fun because I was able to use my new Druidcraft Tarot that I was given as a Solstice gift. I’ve wanted that tarot for a while so I could use it in conjunction with the Wildwood deck. I’ve felt that the two decks together would be quite potent. More of that to come in the future!
This reading does intertwine with my previous reading for the energies between Solstice and Imbolc. It’s possible this short time period is the respite we needed and the Ace of Swords energy mentioned there. (If you notice, both readings feature swords and clarity and Truth.)
For now, enjoy the wave of energy that seems to be coming our way.
The problem with having a blog AND a Youtube channel is you occasionally forget you did one and did not update the other! For instance, here’s a reading I did on this past Full Moon last week and the energies/advice for moving toward the New Moon at the end of the month, December 29th.
This is part of a new series of readings I will be doing at every New Moon and Full Moon to help navigate the coming time. I frame the question and the reading to be focused towards anyone who might be watching it. After that, I just let the Universe do it’s thing.
More to come as I get my tripod and camera figured out a bit better!
I was finally able to carve out the time to get this reading done and recorded. This period of full moon to new moon appears to be all about transition, fear and grounding as we move to a very fertile new moon on the 15th. I changed the cards up again and am using the Sacred Path deck along with one Faeries Oracle card. Also, instead of drawing these cards I dowsed them out with my pendulum.
Once again, the focus of this reading is for the overall Earth energy during this period of time. It speaks towards a deeper, more subtle energy which will be present. The typical question I ask when doing these readings is, “What will be present for those that work with Earth energy to use or be aware of during that time period?”
Enjoy and, as always, I love to hear about experiences or thoughts on the reading.
