Should We Do Third-Party Readings?

neon question mark

A third-party reading is one that focuses on someone other than the querent requesting the reading. Usually, a Querent will introduce a third person into a session by asking questions regarding that person’s motives, thoughts, desires, and needs. While these inquiries may seem harmless, there is a danger in trying to provide insight into a third-party’s life and for that reason it may be smart to avoid thrid party readings.

Third-Party Readings from the Querent’s Point of View

It’s important to note that often a Querent asks questions relating to a third-party for several reasons. At the forefront is usually a desire to protect oneself from what is feared the most (think: betrayals, lies, or abandonment). Often the Querent is feeling something in their gut and wants the reader to deny or confirm these feelings. In all honesty, the Querent is not looking to manipulate the third-party. They are only trying to prepare for what may be coming. They are looking for a way to understand what they already know in their heart. Continue reading Should We Do Third-Party Readings?

Courage to Move Forward Spread

Vivid Description Custom Spread

TGIF all. This week as been one of never-ending exhaustion and anxiety. My daughter is preparing to go to sleep-away camp for the first time ever. I loved camp as a child and I know it will be a good experience, but I carry some scars because one of the worse things to ever happen to me, happened while at camp. Suffice it to say that my nerves are a mess. I felt a lot like I was sleeping through this week in a daze.

At any rate, my heart is ready for this even if my mind is not ready for me to move forward.  To help quell the nerves and the desire to pull a 180 and refuse to let her go, I created this spread to remind me of what I have in my corner and what lessons have prepared me to support my daughter in this journey.

Interviewing Your Tarot Deck

Interview Your Tarot Deck- Tarot Nefetari

When I get a new Tarot deck, I spend a lot of time touching them, shuffling them, and taking in the artwork and its energy. Each deck is different even if they are the same type of cards. In fact, there are differences between cards even when identical. I find that the only way to give an accurate reading when interpreting a Tarot spread is to understand the deck and how you, the reader, is connected to the deck. In essence, I interview my cards. Just like one would interview a new employee for a job, I ask my Tarot deck questions to ensure that we are the right fit for each other.  Doing so is a powerful way to learn about the cards and to discover their collective power and purpose.

Most recently, I interviewed my Tarot Nefertari Deck. I absolutely adore this deck, with its gold-leaf backing and beautiful interpretation of Egyptian themes. From the moment I touched these cards, I knew that they were meant to be in my regular rotation. In fact, purchasing these is what convinced me to offer my Empowerment Tarot sessions to the public. Before purchasing this deck, I only interpreted cards for myself and friends. But Tarot Nefertari has helped me to understand what I am supposed to be doing in life. They have reminded me that my intuition and my ability to understand human behavior and motivation are my greatest assets.

June Tarot Challenge Day 5: What Do You Need to Learn About Love

What Do You Need to Learn About Love

The Hermit reminds me that Love starts with self and from there, it s share and passed on. I must take some time to reflect on myself and connect with my own personal spiritual being to understand and appreciate love.

This card is so appropriate and has been showing up in readings that I have received a lot as of late. The desire for “more,” to experience fullness and fullfilmentin life has been exasperated by the last four years of my marriage. While I have been looking to my husband to “fix” things, what I am understanding now if that I need to “fix” me and then I will see the benefits of that within my marriage. Especially now as it seems that we are both in agreement that we want this and want to move forward in partnership.

June Tarot Challenge Day 4: Your Heart

June Tarot Challenge from Willow Moon Mystics

I am joining the June Tarot Challenge on Instagram created by WillowMoonMystics. It’s a great way to connect with my cards, practice interpreting the Tarot, and tracking my personal growth. Today’s focus, on Day 4 of the #JuneTarotChallenge is Your Heart.

I am using the Tarot Nefertari Deck to complete this challenge.

This was an odd session. I shuffled my deck with my eyes closed, repeating my intention in my mind. I selected The 5 of Pentacles, Reversed. When I picked up my deck, after meditating on this card and its meaning, I noticed that The Wheel of Fortune, Reversed was turned face-up in the middle of the set. I meditated on these cards together, and something felt off, disconnected. They did not seem to tell the whole story. I don’t usually advocate for re-pulling as it seems like many people will do this when they don’t like the reading, but I had to follow my intuition which said that there was more to this reading.

So I reset my cards, shuffled again and pulled the 9 of Pentacles in the upright position. Pentacles have been my story for a while as financial worries have been eating away at my heart. Rather than discounting the previous cards, I decided to read them all to see the truth. I put these cards together and read them using a three-card spread which felt right because there are three parts of Your Heart: feeling, thinking, and desiring.

Your Heart

As I begin to worry less about finances, I am struggling with feeling empty, like something is missing from my life. I am feeling disconnected from myself and desire more of a spiritual attachment to the world and myself. I am having difficulties in making this connection because I am worried about the obstacles that may be lurking. In my heart I know that things are beyond my control and the if bad things are going to happen, really can’t stop them. I can prepare myself to do the best that I can in the face stressful events. But I want so badly to experience peace, creative freedom, and to enjoy life. I don’t want to saddle myself with worry and fear. I want harmony and unity in my life.
