Maiden/Mother/Crone Tarot Spread

Greetings beautiful humans.

Here is a new spread I'm working on:  Maiden Mother Crone

Maiden Card divines New Possibilities, areas of Naivete, Innocence

Mother Card divines Energies/Situations to be Nurtured, Relationships to Grow

Crone Card divines The Greater Forces at Work, Guidance, Psychic Protection

My Maiden Card is Understanding.  Feeling paralyzed by anxiety isn't a working tool.  Start facing the situations that scare me with that Easy Like Sunday morning vibe.

My Mother Card is Empowerment.  She says Show Yourself to the World.  Like Joan of Arc, be bold and true to yourself.  Accept the present moments and be Fearless - it's transformational.

My Crone Card is about the Process.  She says learn to See the moments that feed your Spirit.  Bask in the Fire of those life moments that make you feel Connected.

Using the Illuminated Tarot.

The November Tarot Day 30 Goodbye November

For the last day of November, I'm using a spread called:

The Earth, The Sun, The Moon, and The Stars.  The Earth is what grounds me, The Sun is what nourishes me, The Moon is what awakens me, and The Stars are what I wish for.

Using the Thoth Deck, by Lady Frieda Harris, with some insight from Aleister Crowley, the old reprobate.

My Earth Card is The Lovers
My Sun Card is The Ace of Disks
My Moon Card is Adjustment
My Star Card is 10 of Swords/Ruin

What grounds me?  Love.  Isn't that what grounds everyone?  Loving someone is a way of showing yourself that you too are worth loving.  It represents the earthly gift of finding common ground with someone.  When we love, we show ourselves completely with all of our grit and weakness, trusting the other person to see the core worth of who we are.  That's contacting the divine.

What nourishes me? Finding new opportunities.  Discovering something to nurture and bring some energy to.  Casting my light around for ways that I can get out of my comfort zone.

What awakens me?  Adjustment.  Like a graceful dancer en pointe or a Samurai summoning inner strength, my Adjustment suggests careful action, and skillful negotiation.  This card's Adjustment goddess is using her inner knowing to isolate a truth that is worth standing for.  She's telling me "Don't bargain with your Truth".

What do I wish for?  This seems more like a card of What do I wish to avoid?  The 10 of Swords/Ruin is a cautionary card.  Such a spiky nasty beast of a card.  Well, looks like ish gets real.

The continuum here is pretty clear.  Value what's real.  Take care of it.  Water the right seeds, Give it all my warmth and love - If there are outside influences knocking me off my balance (you know, life, money worries, arguments, deadlines, expectations) find that crystalline point of inner truth - keep rocking until I find my center.  Adjust.

Day 29 The November Tarot

Card of the Day! Using the Illluminated Tarot by Caitlin Keegan.  The 5 of Clubs/The Devil

It's time to shake off some attachments and dependencies.  The "devil" in this card is our inner demon distracting us from achieving that 3rd eye serenity we crave.  This card wants me to take back control from the monkey mind, and sit in restful oneness.  I love how The Illuminated Tarot uses beautiful symbols of Kundalini fire, calming turquoise and glowing amber downward-cast eyes to illustrate how we can balance all that good, motivating Fiery energy, with a sense of Inner Harmony.

The November Tarot Day 28 Relationship Reveal

Today I did a Relationship Reveal draw.  Do you have a relationship conundrum?  Wonder where it's going, were the fuck it went?  Do you need some insight into how to appreciate this relationship more?  People can be pretty good at hiding themselves from us.  The cards can show us a relationship Gift lying dormant - once we see it, we can dig it up, dust it off and put a shine to it.

Here it is - Pick a Court card that represents your Human.  It doesn't have to relate to birth gender or appearance in any way.  It's just something about this Court card that embodies qualities you associate with this Human.

Now.  Shuffle your Major Arcana cards, fan out face down in front of you.  Put a little energy into your choice - rub your hands together, let your card give you some vibes.  The Major Arcana draw shows aspects of your relationship you might have missed.  It can be a Blessing unseen until this moment, something this person has taught you, something so important that they have Yet to Illuminate for You.  This card may also be used for shadow work.  Is there a dark side to knowing this Human?  Do they nourish your soul, or leave you vacant and insubstantial?

For this draw I used the Aquarian Tarot, and a certain someone in mind - No, it's not my husband :^)

My Person is quietly forceful, rigid, conservative in some ways.  They are focused on matters of the material plane, first, always.  They don't seem adventurous.  They are stubborn.  They appear sure of their opinions.  They love me.  They are mature.

My Major Arcana card turned out to be The Magician.  The Magician does have a gift for me.  He wants me to see that some relationships are everlasting.  He wants me to see that this person's intentions come from a place of love.  They want to give it all.  They need to feel respected.  They want me to see how much they can share with me if I set aside my Ego to listen.  But. here comes the shadow... they don't know me.  The Magician is a pretty solitary, all encompassing energy.  The magician has all the tools and maybe this represents an obstacle in the free exchange of thought between my Human and Me.  I can't get past his table full of important tried and true tools, and he needs nothing from me.  Nothing but adoration and respect.

What can I learn from these 2 cards showing my Perception of this person and something that I need to See?  This relationship is blocked by ego and a difference in ideas.  This relationship is worth working on.  This person has a lot to give.  Maybe this person would like me to see past all the trappings on the table, and look deeper to the Human under the ceremonial robe.  They would rather move forward and keep working on the relationship until we get it right.

The November Tarot Day 27

Day 27 Monday Motivations.  Like The Queen of Clubs, I can grow and prosper where I’m planted.  This Queen of Cats knows how to take care of herself and others, without losing her sense of who she is.  She takes on projects and daily activities, but maintains a fierce focus on protecting her what drives her.  This Lioness doesn’t allow her Spirit to be stamped out by daily tasks - she taps into her inner motivations and makes each moment count for Something Bigger.
