HAPPY HALLOWEEN Y'ALL!!! Happy New Moon in Scorpio too!! Y'all ready to start some new stuff? It's a good time for it - this week is all about cycles and new beginnings...
I thought it might be helpful if I explained my process a little bit here, since a general three-card reading for an entire community is a bit different than an individual reading. I start with the same question each week, and while I shuffle the cards, I ask what we as a community will need to know/learn to serve our greater purpose. As a result, the cards tend to give broader answers and exist here to provide us with some helpful guidance to get through our week gracefully and with positive intention. While these readings are broad, keep in mind that we are all humans and (even though we are unique individuals with complex and rich lives with a diversity of concerns) we all tend to struggle with the same kinds of issues. I look at these little readings as a way to unite us - like invisible connective tissue.
So! This week y'all, let's get after it.
- Book: in this deck, Book is connected to education, studies and learning. If you are wondering about a direction for your career, this could mean an opportunity for continued education or pursuing a course of study. If you are more concerned with personal health or mental type issues, the appearance of this card is telling you to hit the books and do some research - particularly if you have been kicking around the idea of a change of career or going back to school. If you have romance on the brain and are looking for love, then get yo ass to the library! You might just meet someone special there and at the very least you have the chance to leave with a killer book. It's win-win, really.
- Scissor: This card is about cutting away problems or ending relationships or situations which no longer serve you - they also signify a warning about quick changes or rash decisions. If you have been concerned with your career, the appearance of this card with the Ring indicates a the end of a contract or agreement - even a job. If your area of concern for this week is more health related, you may be ending an unhealthy relationship this week (or having an actual surgery - the Lenormand is literal in that way). For those of you with a focus on matters of the heart, the appearance of the Scissors can mean an actual break-up - as well as cutting ties with the past in order to move on.
- Ring: This card speaks of commitments within relationships - platonic, romantic and professional. If you are thinking about your career, a new contract or job offer may be on the horizon. For those of you worried about your health or state of mind, the Ring is about cycles. Are you repeating unhealthy patterns that need to stop? For romance readings, the Ring is usually about engagements or marriage - if this happens to apply to you, congratulations and best wishes! (Oracle is a wonderful place to find wedding and engagement gifts and favors by the way - we love getting witchy and doing tarot and numerology readings at bachelorette parties, HINT HINT )!
* As I mentioned earlier, these three card readings are intended for us all as a community and are therefore broad. If you are interested in a more specific, in-depth reading - we offer individual readings at Oracle as well! If you would like to schedule an appointment for an individual reading, you can do that here or give us a ring at 816.982.9550. You can also join us for one of our monthly Tarot Workshop & Happy Hour events and learn more about cartomancy!
