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.

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!

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 😀  Woo Hoo!! I love these cards….

Most recent Tea leaf Card draw –

click on the picture to see the cards better –

It may be Thursday, but I missed my weekly draw this past weekend because of company staying with us. I didn’t want to wait till the weekend soooo….!!

I’m grateful to see the Rainbow as my first card, and the meaning that “the most difficult part of a situation is over”.
When I personally see rainbows, I always feel it’s a gift from Spirit and a good omen.

The following 3 cards describe what the situation has been:

Quill – get back to basics

Hills – Obstacles to overcome

Boot – Increase your efforts if you want to achieve your goals.

My family went through a period of great financial difficulty over the past 3 years. We were forced to sell our house and many of our belongings. It was difficult and heart wrenching, but also a time of obtaining a new perspective on Life and learning the lesson of ‘Enjoy the Journey’ and “Stay Present”.

Past norms went out the window, and living as frugally as we possibly could became the new norm for us. We took a leap of faith and moved across Canada, leaving all our belongings in storage, while we tried to forge a new life. Our things are still in storage 2 years later (!ugh) but our experiences have been rich. I became a modern day gypsy in many ways!

The Universe lined us up with some very interesting people – we found jobs, and are slowly re-building our lives. It’s been very hard, but I’ve really taken to heart about getting back to basics. I’ve since learned how to can foods, dehydrate, etc. and have built a food storage supply. Having gone through my own mini-“depression era” I don’t want to ever find myself without the basics. I’ve learned how to make my own laundry soap for a fraction of the cost of store-bought, and have discovered how wonderful White Vinegar is for cleaning and other uses! I’ve made the most of being frugal, and wouldn’t trade the knowledge. My grandmother and mother would be proud 🙂 ❤

But, how nice it is to see the Rainbow card in front of this situation! The most difficult part is over…. I like that. Now, if only I can get my belongings over to this side of Canada and find a home to put them in!! All in due time….

What’s interesting about this reading to me, is that my Higher Self or my guides wanted me to know that things will improve. This wasn’t a mundane reading about some event or person, but a sweet message of encouragement. That means a lot.

I don’t know why it took me so long to dedicate time to these wonderful cards, but I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered them now. I really like their energy.

Ironically, if I didn’t see any words on these cards, they would still have a special meaning to me. My grandfather always had me sing “Somewhere over the Rainbow” when I was little – lol – always found them of special import.

The Quill for me is writing – (my father was a journalist and was writing his first novel when he died) I have always written stories, songs, poetry…

The Hills remind me of the Hill Country in Texas where my grandfather had the family ranch. I grew up there, riding horses and making pictures out of the clouds 🙂

and the Boot, was our regular attire! but it’s a strong symbol for my Dad.

I’ve been seriously contemplating taking a course on writing a novel – these symbols could be a message from my Dad that that would be a good thing for me to do! (Thanks Dad)

Always remember, there are many ways to combine symbols – what you are drawn to is appropriate for you. There can be more than one level of reading messages in the cards of any deck. Play with them and see what you come up with!

Weekly Tea Leaf Reading~

I drew these cards 10 days ago, and then never had a chance to post. It stayed with me because I understood it (!lol!) but to be honest, it hasn’t happened yet 😦   I know all too well though that the cards don’t stay boxed in to a time-frame that I’ve set – Time is a mental construct on our part, and the part that we access for psychic guidance is outside of Time. So I think this still has revelence.

The Money Path, this opportunity, is connected to a stubborn individual. My first thought was that this stubborn person was my unofficial boss that I’m working with on a big project;  (my ‘boss’ is also a dear friend, and there is a lot of affection between the 2 couples – the 4 of us liked each other on first meeting and became fast friends)- but as the days pass, I’m not so sure. My husband is a very stubborn individual in his own right! lol so this might be related to him 🙂

Whoever the stubborn person is, there is affection/love and caring and some kind of an announcement/news coming from them.

Those are the 2 stubborn people in my life at the moment, so it’s GOT to be referencing one of them! lol  Hope it’s my husband, but we’ll see 🙂

Weekly Reading with theTea Leaf Cards

Well, I’m not too pleased to see the first card, Shield…I need to defend myself? Swell! lol

I drew these cards on Saturday before leaving on another journey (Carriage). I, at first, thought that the person I would have to defend myself from was my boss; he’s gray-haired. He has a habit of calling and needing things done at the most inopportune times! lol but I’ve already had an instance happen that might fulfill this reading with my husband.

Last night, I had to stand my ground in disagreeing with my husband on something important which I knew really irked him, but agreeing with him would have been worse. I made sure not to lose my temper, but stood my ground.

If nothing else happens this week, I will chalk it up to defending my position on a longstanding difference of opinion. 

These readings make it sound like we’re at odds all the time, but we’re not honestly 🙂

mini update: I received a call on the road from my boss, saying that he was told that a deposit that I had made to a bank was not showing up in the account…I firmly said I deposited it and would scan in the receipts and send them to him and the other party. No anger on either parts – he believed me…. I was a bit annoyed, but not angry. So this might count for this week’s reading as well 🙂

Weekly Drawing – Tea Leaf Cards

Click on the picture to see it more closely-

I drew these this morning, and following the last reading, I am grateful to see these cards!

The Tiger, for me, always represents my husband. He is a Tiger in the Chinese Zodiac and fits it to a tee. They have 2 sides for sure – and you can see my hand at the back, trying to soothe just a bit, the unpredictable Tiger, wondering if I’ll get my hand bit off!

Target describes my husband very well. He is very goal oriented and can’t understand why others don’t follow suit to the degree he does.

Butterfly means a change for the better; and the following card Barrel says that something I feel is lacking is going to change for the better….or something that he (?) feels is lacking is going to get better? Most likely both!

It is my hope that these cards say that conditions surrounding us take a turn for the better, and that he doesn’t bite the hand that tries to soothe him.

Why do people turn on the ones closest to them? lashing out? it’s a very short-sighted thing to do!

Another way to read this possibly is that the very goal oriented Tiger has a change for the better around something seen as lacking.

I would like to think it relates to me, and I wonder what Rae would say was her experience. But oracle cards for me often talk about other people around me, and are not always necessarily a message directly to do with me. It’s one of those grey areas that I just have to follow my intuition on, and then come back and see if I was right.

I’m hoping the message means both!

Update:The message did end up meaning both and in a very surprising way. Yes, for me personally, things got better between my Metal Tiger and myself. It was a tough week work-wise and full moon -wise (!) but there were improvements in our relationship in a way that I had hoped for.

On another level, I was shocked at how these cards pinpointed an event for my husband. In general terms I will share that he has been deeply involved in negotiating a big land deal for his company. It has been a grueling few months getting it just right. Funds had been delayed, and the deal was left floating. This week, my husband learned some critical information about loans owed by the other party and had one of the creditors contact his lawyer. It literally was a game changer on the deal and will mean that he will save millions on this project.

Rae’s warning about being careful for what you wish for turned out to be very true though, because my husband is not a cut-throat when it comes to business, he and I firmly believe in karma. With that in mind, he has carefully tried to find the middle road for a fair deal on both sides, in light of the new information. It is a very tricky process!

So yes! these cards are very quickly becoming one of my favorite oracles (although nothing will take the place of the lenormand in my heart!! lol) — simply uncanny so far 🙂
