The cards still show Change :)

Click on Image for a closer look-

I drew these cards a few days ago, but hadn’t had a chance to post.

The Pail – time to get out of a situation! no kidding! We are furiously trying to extricate ourselves from some troubled business dealings with a certain person.

Dolphin – Financial gain, usually to do with something done in the past.

Feather – Someone you know who is undependable and insincere. (This card started showing up to represent the business colleague before we really had a conscious inkling that we weren’t going to stay aligned with this person. We had thought he was an honorable person because for a year, he had been honorable with us. The cards identified him though! called him out!)

Flag – don’t lower your standards. — This was an interesting card to draw, because we were being pressured to let go of control, and take a lot less than we deserved by this insincere person! We haven’t lowered our standards, by any means.

Key – Successful outcome to your problems! What a great follow-up card!

The tea leaf reading was letting me know that we would get the money we were owed, that we would be successful, and to not lower our standards, (basically in desperation).

We have heard through the grapevine that there is activity behind the scenes to buy us out, so we will hold tight and endure.

What a very strange few years it’s been for my husband and I! if I had had a vision showing all the travail that we would go through back in 2007/8  I don’t think I would have believed it.

We are forever changed, but I do believe that there’s a silver lining to all of this🙂

Still waiting for ‘The Change’….

My birthday reading, 9 days ago hinted at a change coming for the better. Unfortunately, although there’s been a temporary reprieve on some pressing matters, the big  ‘change’ hasn’t happened! I am holding my breath, trying to focus on what I want to see happen rather than fear the worst. It’s difficult.

My assorted readings have continued to look wonderful….frankly fantastic, but I don’t have evidence of them yet, so I wait.

I have done many readings this year for other people; around business, finances, whether or not people were going to come thru in a business deal, and assorted relationship questions etc. I was astonished with the amount of hits I got, both about things that were really great, and really bad. I even was able to read in the cards about a health crisis around someone I knew, and how they would be admitted to hospital. A month later, this person had a nervous breakdown and was admitted to a psychiatric ward! I hadn’t guessed that, but I saw the hospitalization!

SO, I really don’t doubt that the messages that I am now receiving, that are so very good, could be anything but right —but God! I wish it would appear! LOL Why does the bad stuff seem to come so quickly, and the good stuff takes it’s sweet time??😀

Here is my reading today:

I was fascinated to see the cards that I picked.

Dagger – tense situation, fears and worries

Older Man – dealings or relationship with an older man

Bell – Announcement, news of some kind….good or bad depends on surrounding cards

Sunrise – New creative ideas. A new venture. A fresh start…

Flowers – Happiness

The tense situation (Dagger) that has me fearful and worried is with our former boss/partner. He left us in a terrible situation, with no salary  and a mountain of debts that we didn’t accrue, he did! Either he or my husband is the older man that follows. I think it is the former boss.

It is getting extremely tense here, as my husband is threatening to go to the authorities if this man doesn’t correct the problem immediately.

The Bell is an announcement, and it’s connected to this older man. With the Sunrise and Flowers cards following it, I can assume that it’s good news.

It looks as though we are going to live to fight another day, and get a fresh start that we’ll be happy with.

Let that be the case!! I’m going to use this card spread as a visualisation.

My tarot and lenormand readings all hint at the same outcome, that the company gets it’s debt paid and we go forward in a new direction.
I’m ready!

My Birthday reading

Yesterday was my birthday. It was a very quiet one, as we’ve had some difficult financial problems over the summer. Pay for services rendered hasn’t been paid, and left us scrambling to survive. Talk about being tested!!

With emotion, I asked for a reading on my birthday…please show me what was in store…

Fan – Romance, celebration or party…. I didn’t have one for my birthday, so I’ll read it in connection to what the other cards have to share.

Pineapple – Reconciliation…. either I am going to reconcile with someone that I am odds with (and to be honest, I sincerely doubt that!) or I am going to surrender to what is, knowing that I can’t do anything more about it.

There has been a terrible situation with our former ‘boss’ and colleague who didn’t pay us our salary, and has left outstanding bills to be paid in the company that we run. We were blind-sided and are threatening to get the authorities involved. Had we not had a food storage pantry, we would have really been in trouble.😦

Caterpillar – Things won’t always be this way, a change is coming.

Bear – Danger, especially in money matters.

The Caterpillar and the Bear say it all, but thankfully, I read it as saying that this scarey episode with the threat of total financial ruin, will not stay with us. In fact, with the Fan card we will be celebrating in some way over this.

I have to hold out hope, that this really will pass, and we won’t lose everything. It was a very good Birthday message to receive.

Please, if you have a moment, send a prayer my way. I just know that if I do come out of this, I’m going to give service to others in some way….work at a food bank or a food kitchen,…..something, because I’ve come too close to the edge this time. I understand the suffering now.

too hot…

I’ve been wilting in the heat wave up here in Canada (who would have thought?) – and I’m renting temporarily a place with beautiful views, but no air conditioning!

Will be back shortly!

Tea Leaf reading

I know that I haven’t  been sharing other card decks recently, and I apologise, I will try to post other oracle decks too. Time has been very scarce lately and I’ve wanted to practice with these cards more🙂 This deck just grows and grows on me!

Today I drew: Coins – Mountain Road – Gong – Staff

Coins: Money will be coming to you  (!! hip hip!!)

Mountain Road: You are on the road to success

Gong: An exciting event

Staff: You will be taken care of in difficult times

Well, that’s pretty exciting, and pretty self explanatory!


I keep getting hints in all my readings that something major is about to happen. It could be about a few different things, or maybe none of them at all…..maybe I’ll win the lottery after all


              A girl has gotta dream ! lol

Tea Leaf Reading

I have been off grid recently. The move into the new house (which is lovely) doesn’t have any air conditioning, and the heat wave knocked me for a loop for awhile. It’s cooler today so thought I’d post😀

Door – Quill – Moon – Unicorn

Very nice!  New opportunities await me. Back to basics (?) Changes in my life. Use my intuition to make beneficial changes.

Interesting. To be honest, I’ve gotten SO back to basics, that I’m a freaking modern day pioneer woman! lol can’t get too much more back to basics than making your own cleaning supplies and laundry detergent! Sigh. I know that’s not what the card Quill is referring to, but still…

The Moon card, coming from my tarot training and lenormand training, also has to do with all things psychic or creative, and don’t forget emotions!

I’ve got to say, that I feel it in my bones that a new chapter of my life is getting ready begin, but I have no idea what that might look like right now.

Something just hit me as I looked at these cards, especially the Quill. “Back to basics” : I’ve been getting very strongly that I need to get back to the discipline of meditating daily. When I did in the past, I had incredible experiences and my life was magical. I can’t say that about my life at the moment!

Combining that  idea with the Moon and Unicorn cards, maybe they really are talking about psychic practices, and that by getting back to the basics of meditating, there will be changes energetically for me.

I know that all sounds ‘woo woo’, but it feels right. Now I’ve just got to stop thinking (literally!) about meditating, and actually DO it! lol

On a more mundane level, maybe by following my intuition, and getting back to creative basics (like writing/drawing etc) that some door will open…(?) I’m not really sure.

At any rate, it’s a good reading😀 which I will embrace.

mini update: I have just begun meditating again, and feel better for it. I’ve also taken up a form of meditative doodling called “Zentangle”. (Google the term to discover more). It’s a type of drawing that puts you in a meditative state – it’s very calming and a good stress buster. I’ve committed to doing a few Zentangles each day, and I’m enjoying it. I bring this up, because of the Quill card – getting back to basics and literally the Pen, and the Moon/Unicorn cards of a psychic and creative nature; these 3 cards could definitely refer to the practice of Zentangling! lol go figure!

It’s soothing and addictive🙂

Weekly Tea Leaf Card Reading

I drew these the other day….they look positive🙂 I apologize for the quality of the photo, it was taken hastily on my camera phone.

A Wishbone is a wish granted.

Small Child is the birth or conception of a child or a new enterprise. I would also link this card to the Lenormand card, ‘Child’ which could relate to something small, or an offer/proposal, something new…

Bell is an announcement.

A Kite means vacation. (Also, what about flying ‘high as a kite’? meaning excitements and joy?)

Sooooo, possibly there is going to be an announcement about a new project (we’ve been trying to get one or two off the ground..) – this would be a wish come true, and I’d be flying high as a kite!! LOL

Or, the new enterprise happening, would also mean that money we’ve waited for has arrived to begin that project, and which in turn would mean I would get a break/vacation.

My greatest wish is for the long, drawn out legal battle that has plagued my family finally comes to an end. Maybe there is an announcement of an offer coming….and if that were the case, there would definitely be a vacation that would follow such an announcement. It would be visit the relatives time, have some fun and celebrate time, be as happy as flying a kite time😀  10 years is an incredible long time to do battle.

I will update –

Update : Well, unfortunately, I haven’t had anything happen as of yet with this drawing. There have been some other developments in my life, that maybe just maybe this will refer to….fingers crossed.

My 20 year old daughter finished her 2nd year of University with straight ‘A’s. She’s one bright cookie when it comes to school! She flowed the energy and got a wonderful furnished apartment and a great roommate, and settled in to work during the summer inbetween semesters. All looked really promising..

Then her best friend from high school came out to visit from the East Coast and next thing we know, she’s announced that she’s quitting school for a year and giving up her apt. and moving back East to do ‘whatever’ with her old friend! My heart literally broke – if anyone should stay the course and get their degree, it’s this girl! I have tried to support the idea of a year off, but wanted her to stay in the new life she’s created, rather than ditching everything and going back to the ‘Past’. It seems the friend has too great an influence and I’m sad and angry.

I can only hope that my wish is granted (wishbone) and the child makes an announcement (bell) that I’m happy and excited about (kite). How I pray for a different outcome than the course she’s on!

I will update the update!

A busy, frantic time!

Hope those in Canada had a wonderful time yesterday…Happy Canada Day🙂 Being an American who’s become a Canadian citizen, I get to enjoy a week of festivities every July! lol

I’ve been absent from blogging due to moving house over the last 2 weeks. We are happy to be ensconced in a lake house for the next 6 months…oh the peace….

My cards showed the move a month or two before we knew we’d have to vacate the other condo!

I wanted to share a series of draws that I’ve had over the time we moved, starting with:

I am the woman, and what surrounds me is the scythe and mice. This could have indicated stressful decisions (which during the move there definitely were) but I was fascinated to discover that it can also mean ‘breaking down’.

I’m a very steady, emotionally solid person 99.9% of the time – I’ve been through trials that would break a lot of people, and didn’t me. During this move though, there was an altercation between my mate and I that set me back to the Stone Age. I didn’t know which way was up! I had been working my butt off to clean the condo that we’d vacated  and was exhausted, only to return to someone who was bent on picking a fight. You know the kind, no matter what you do or say, it’s not going to matter?

It went so far, that I completely lost it and wept on a bed for hours and hours. We didn’t talk for 24 hours, and the next day, he was conciliatory.

So Scythe/Mice described what happened to me perfectly, although I never would have guessed it prior to it happening. I hope you never find yourself with that card combination meaning this! because it’s awful!…..’stressful decisions’ I would have much preferred for a meaning!

A day later, after efforts to bring back normalcy, my husband drew these 3 cards as part of bigger spread:

The Sun and Storks hints at positive improvements. The Birds can represent a couple.

The combinations of Storks/Birds can mean progress in a relationship or improved intimacy.

I was very relieved to see these cards! We were feeling much closer and healing our rift by this point, and it was just darn nice to see in his cards that he was feeling better too.

Stress is a real killer!

Weekly Tea Leaf Reading –

(If you’re not familiar with these cards, please click on the image for a larger view of them )

After the morning’s phone call from the landlady and spending the day stewing, I started throwing out things and getting organized! (which is what I always do when I get stressed, never mind have to move!!)

During a break, I pulled out my friends, the Tea Leaf cards, for some insight. They are turning out to be amazingly accurate for me – I am really bonding with this deck!

I drew: Wedge, Clouds, Rainbow, Candle.

The first card down, Wedge, describes a trouble maker, someone trying to come between me and someone or something I want. They didn’t succeed in coming between me and the landlady – I’m pretty sure that she just wanted to have the freedom to charge more rent during the summer season – but they did manage to succeed in having us have to move out. Not nice!! and this person looks like the sweetest little old lady! watch out – appearances can definitely be deceiving!

With the 2nd card, Clouds, assures me that this is just a temporary problem, nothing too major.

The 3rd card, is once again the Rainbow ( I had that recently in another reading). It promises that the worst of a situation is over.
Now interestingly, I also caught a commercial today on television, that I had never seen before. I couldn’t tell you what they were selling (!LOL) but it showed all these people dressed up like Dorothy of “Wizard of Oz” fame; and they were all dancing at the end of a rainbow on the Yellow Brick Road!! The title that kept flashing was “Over the Rainbow”😀

I’ve written before about the song “Somewhere over the Rainbow” and it’s meaning to me, so funnily, this gave me a little bit of comfort. It felt as though my loved ones in Spirit were trying to let me know that it was all going to be OK so don’t get too upset. The other thing I  noticed is that Dorothy ended up very happily dancing on the Yellow Brick Road…the road of gold…

And the 4th card, the Candle, reassures me that I will be shown the way. Looking closely at the card, it also is surrounded by a wreath of Lilies. For me, personally, that represents Spirit. I spent years going to Spiritualist Church in North Yorkshire,England, participating in Psychic development circles etc. so this is a strong image for me. The fact that the candle is encircled with Lilies made me think that not only am I being protected and embraced by Spirit at this time, but that they will be guiding me through this difficult period.

So although, I’m upset and not just a little bit miffed at what’s transpired, I believe that there will be a silver lining to all of this.

If I wanted to stretch a little further, I would also mention that my employer, shows up in the Lenormand as the Lily card – he’s older with gray hair. It may be that he is also connected in helping in this matter.. we’ll see.

********Update: these cards were right on the money! I really am ‘Over the Rainbow’! Spent a day scouring listings and feeling really glum because the rents in this area go through the roof in the summer, I stumbled upon a listing for a furnished home out in the country amongst the vineyards, that’s a close commute for work and flight training. It’s quiet, in an artist community, and on the lake! HEAVEN!! did I mention quiet?? and a private beach??????? We went to view it today, in the pouring rain, and knew that this house was waiting for us to find it. So goodbye noisy condo with the quirky neighbors! I’m headed to paradise for the 1st of July :D  Woo Hoo!! I love these cards….

This morning’s Lenormand draw –

Well, the cards have been hinting at it for awhile, but I chose to ignore it. I drew these cards this morning, and exclaimed “oh crap” I think we ARE going to have to move!

I knew we were going to move eventually, like Sept. but not in 28 days!

We got a call from the landlady who lives in another province. She had been waffling back and forth about possibly selling the property. She also could get large rents per week, as a holiday rental.

Unfortunately for us, there is someone who has a bit of influence here who got annoyed with my husband. He complained (to her) about her leaving her dogs out unattended and letting them bark. Their favorite place happens to be outside our kitchen window! Now I’m a real dog lover, I’ve had them all my life – but I’ve always been very sensitive to making sure that my dogs were good neighbors.

Literally only a few days after he complained, we hear from our landlady that she received a few emails saying that he had accessed her other property and had moved furniture around – 1) we didn’t know which other unit was hers and 2) we would have no way to enter that property! nor would we.

She didn’t believe the email, but used it as an excuse to not to have to renew our lease. So there’s the Snake around our home – someone up to no good/ trouble around our residence; with the result being that we’re being forced to move. In all my years on the planet, I’ve never had to deal with something so outrageous (and for me, personally hurtful).

I’ve had other readings that show tremendous luck and fortunate synchronicities around me, and being happy about moving – so we’ll see! I’m doing my best to trust that the Universe has something better in store for me :D  If I’m totally honest, there are things about living here that neither of us really liked, but it was convenient for my husband’s flight school training. I’m just going to have to surrender on this….
