Pisces ~ Here's Your In-Depth Tarot Reading!

Hello, Pisces!  Welcome to my back porch!  It's been a while since I've done one of these readings, and it looks like an exciting time coming up for Pisces.  I'm using the Pagans Way Tarot by Anna Franklin and the Celtic Cross Spread.

I think every tarot reader at Youtube who does these general readings all say this same thing, but I have to go there... These are very general readings.  If you want a reading specifically geared to you and your unique situation, go to my tarot website, The Tarot Parlour, at http://tarotreadingswithamythystraine.blogspot.com

I offer readings through a variety of mediums ~ audio, phone, video, as well as local in-person readings. 

My  website ~ The Witch's Corner
http://amythystraine.blogspot.com
My blog ~ Magickal Connections
http://wychymystique.com

The music for this video is from Youtube's library, by the amazing Kevin McLeod... I can't find the link at the moment for this particular piece, and this is made a bit confusing by the fact that every individual piece seems to have it's own link. Check it out at the Youtube music library for creator's.

A Special Enchantment

I’ve blessed and enchanted a special piece of jewelry that’s going up at The Witch’s Corner.  I will be offering newly enchanted pieces from time to time, blessed and empowered for a variety of intentions, on the Home Page of my website.  Know that any piece of jewelry you buy at The Witch’s Corner can be blessed and empowered to suit your special request.  I’d prefer to sell a piece to an individual and then enchant it especially for their needs, rather than randomly bless and enchant my jewelry.  I hope this makes sense.

A special enchantment ~

 “Uncrossing/Protection”
The following amethyst pendant has been blessed and empowered with the magick to uncross crossed conditions, to protect the wearer from negative energy, negative magick, and negative people.  This pendant is blessed and empowered to keep you safe from the interference of anyone else’s negative actions, thoughts, wishes, or desires.
This special offer includes:
1 genuine amethyst stone pendant
(set in plated sterling silver over copper)
1 bottle of “Uncrossing Oil”

Tarot Flirts with Astrology ~ Your Cards for Today

Aquarius ~ 10/Swords (reversed)

There’s nothing worse than being nailed to the wall, other than being pinned down and cornered to do something you were hoping to get out of, or being called out on the rug to explain yourself or your actions– and this last one is going to be a spine tingling adrenalin rush experience for some of you Aquarians.  This is always a difficult card when it rears it’s ugly head, and for many of you, you didn’t see this coming (until now).  The best thing about this card is that it’s reversed.  Many of you are going to claw your way out of an unpleasant confrontation, or situation, and find solid footing once more.  Kiss the ground when you get there, and make sure this doesn’t happen again, do what you have to do, change what you have to change.

Capricorn ~ King/Swords (reversed)

Something is left unsaid.  Communication is not happening, and it has to be resolved before it’s too late.  There are reasons and ways in which things that need to be said, may never be heard.  Make sure you have no regrets.  Don’t be afraid of sounding silly, don’t be afraid to face disagreement, don’t be afraid to be wrong, don’t gloat if you are right.  The words lay like a choking parcel of food caught in the throat.  Don’t swallow them.  Open your mouth and set them free, along with your conscience, your soul, and your peace of mind.

Pisces ~ 3/Swords

Some of you may face heartbreak or disappointment.  Lessons are learned, wounds will heal.  Life will pick you back up and carry you forward on your path, mercilessly marching you towards new horizons and experiences and awakenings.  What we learn from heartbreak, pain, and sorrow is that it’s not the end, but only a pivotal point on our journey.  Be strong, ride the waves, wait out the storm.  Calm seas and peace await once the clouds have parted.

Aries ~ The Tower

Many of you are going to be called upon to endure great changes and disruptions in your life.  For some it may be connected to relationships and family, for others it could be jobs and careers, and for still others it will be something unique to you and your personal experience, earth-shattering, life-changing.  Oh, how we fight major life transitions, kicking and screaming our way through the storm, even when we know that things will be better when we reach the other side.  Many of you Aries will be put to the test, stretched beyond your limits, tried by fire, tempered like steel.  This is where you find out how strong you really are.

Taurus ~ Temperance (reversed)

This card is all about balance in our lives, and since it’s standing on it’s head for you, there’s a problem in this area.  Many of you may find yourselves feeling up in the air, either overwhelmed with work, or not getting enough hours; some of you may be experiencing unexpected upsets with health issues, which so often kicks our lives out of balance on a variety of levels.  You’re like a cat right now, Taurus, in free-fall.  You’re going to have to figure out what you have to do to turn yourself around so that you land on your feet.

Gemini ~ Knight/Cups (reversed)

For some Gemini, the Knight-in-Shining Armor fairytale is going to remain a myth.  For some of you this may mean that you have unrealistic expectations, and if you don’t lower the bar to a more human level, no one is going to pass the test, no one is going to be quite good enough.  Developing a successful relationship with someone means that you learn to accept their very human flaws (This doesn’t mean that we “settle” for losers, which is the flip side of this coin.).  It means that human beings aren’t perfect, and everyone has their own little quirks; and if we meet someone and fall in love, you learn to accept the WHOLE person, quirks included.

Cancer ~ 7/Cups (reversed)

Many of you Cancers will be making very important decisions during this period, and some of you will not be facing all the facts and may even be colorizing your choices and decisions with rosy glasses and less than a solid grip on reality.  Be sure to honestly look at all the questions in order to find all the answers.  Study the choices and brutally asses whether you can make them work in the real world.  In order to have a successful game plan, you have to have a logical and realistic course of action.  Now, go for it, Cancer!

Leo ~ 4/Pentacles (reversed)

Many of you Leos may have issues coming up that you’ll find rather challenging during this period, and some of these issues will involve relinquishing control (a horror scenario for strong and independent Leo).  You may also be faced with unexpected financial circumstances that require substantial payments, which means breaking into savings, which means parting with your dearly beloved and precious golden coins.  I know, Leo, you lovingly tend your growing nest egg and having to slice it open and remove a chunk is going to be difficult and unpleasant.  Never fear, once this issue is resolved, life will resume as before.

Virgo ~ The Moon (reversed)

You will find yourself surrounded by deception.  Either someone isn’t being honest with you, or you are not being honest with yourself.  Some Virgos might feel that they’ve entered the twilight zone.  There’s a very thin line between reality and fantasy, and when you find yourself in an extremely stressful unpleasant situation, it can make recognizing this line very difficult, which can make it dangerous on a variety of levels.  During this time, seek out individuals, spiritual practices, or professionals to help you find the answers you need.  It’s not a sign of weakness to seek help making right decisions, or getting through traumatic or challenging circumstances.

Libra ~ Princess/Pentacles

Messages and answers to financial issues will be forthcoming in a very timely manner.  Some of you Libras will discover previously unknown facts, or knowledge, that will benefit upcoming decisions and will also shed light on circumstances, or people, surrounding you.  Knowledge is power, the more you have, the stronger you’ll be.  There’s s solitary flair about many of you Libras, intent on personal self-discovery, with a renewed interest in old and unfinished projects.  Make your own kind of magic during this period.

Scorpio ~ 6/Pentacles

“The more the merrier” will be your mantra at this time, Scorpio.  Where before there was not enough, now you will have a surplus.  However, don’t let your guard down, don’t waste precious time or opportunities that come your way.  Continue this forward progression with right action, solid common sense, determination, and a strong work ethic.  It’s time for many Scorpios to climb the ladder to success.  We so often talk about setting goals, but we so seldom stop and relish the accomplishment of meeting those goals.  Do this, Scorpio.

Sagittarius ~ Knight/Pentacles

For some of you Sagittarians bouncing merrily through this year, you’re going to find yourself stopped short by the need for quiet practicality.  Solid common sense, thorough and slow thought processes to work through an issue, are going to assure your happiness continues through 2017.   Don’t be rushed into making any decisions.  Remember, the show can’t go on until you say it does.  The wonderful grounding aspect of this Knight will bode you well, reconnecting you to Earth energy and the solidity you need at this time.

RIP Mom

My mother passed away yesterday unexpectedly. Although we didn’t have a close relationship, I still feel that I knew her very well, and I have a small story to share ~ My husband and I moved to Fremont several years ago along with an exodus of other Hormel employees from all over the US. Not surprisingly, one day my husband ran into a coworker who was also from South Dakota, an older gentleman who had known my husband as a confirmed bachelor. Surprised that he got married, this man asked Duane who his wife was, and my husband told him. The man became very excited, “I remember her mother!” this man said. He went on to tell the tale about watching this very beautiful young woman who would regularly cross a field near his home on horseback. And this was a memory that was still sharp and vivid in his mind. It is a statement about my mother, her passion for horses, and her youthful and exquisite beauty, that 30+ years later, just the memory of watching her brought a rise of excited admiration and awe, and a sparkle, to an old man’s eyes. RIP Mom.

Organizing Your Life to Achieve Your Goals

Originally, this video tarot reading was posted specifically for one of my clients who purchased a video reading.  Just so you know how it works, purchased video readings are taped, edited, and uploaded anonymously at Youtube; and when all is said and done, I email my client a link to their video, which is open for public viewing.  I usually do this and don’t give it another thought.  But this video is different.  I’ve watched this video several times, and the more I’ve watched it the more a dawning realization came to me ~ the message in this video is universal.  Of course it applies directly to my client and to all the personal hurdles and obstacles, all the personal dreams, desires, and goals that encompass this individual and their unique set of circumstances; but there is so much more to it.  So many of us, myself included, can benefit by what Spirit has to say through this reading, and this set of six cards.

Six Things Wrong with Social Sites


Groundhog geek, working at his computer. Probably posting a critique of the film, "Groundhog Day" (1993). Art by Karen Farrell. On one level, Groundhog Day is a festival that concerns, of all things, weather -- or, more specifically, how much more bad weather we can expect before spring. But on a deeper level, it's offers a coping mechanism for the winter weary. Explore my musings on groundhogs and Groundhog Day here: http://landscaping.about.com/cs/pestcontrol/a/groundhog_day.htm:

1.  You find a site that looks promising and interesting, something maybe right down your alley.  You go through the sign up form carefully filling in all the blanks. You pick out a profile photo.  You run a typing marathon figuring out answers to questions like..."What's the basic premise of your spirituality?"...or "Tell us in detail All About You!"...or "Fill in the details of this very important box, or you won't get your foot through the frickin' door."...etc.  You get all primed and ready to set up your own page after spending 20 minutes to a half hour filling things out (not too mention maybe an hour of time it took just to find this particular site, or the extra half hour that went into dealing with technical glitches), and then, once you click the "Join" button, a page pops up that says something to the effect, "Sorry chump, you have to be approved before you can join this site, so sit back and get comfortable, this may take a while, or you might never hear from us again."

2.  There's a big warning sign posted on the home page:  You must participate if you want to be a member of this site.  Anyone who doesn't add something during a specific time span (every two weeks, or every week, or once a month, or once every five days, etc. etc.) will be deleted.

Okay, okay, okay.  If people don't add content and interact, it won't be a social site.  I get that.  But this is not realistic for me, my work-weary brain says.  Are they frickin' kidding me??  I just want to read blogs, or I want to post some of my stuff (very) occasionally, or I want to see what other people are into, or what someone else thinks about this or that.  And I love it when they actually have a box on the fill-out form where you have to "click HERE as a promise you will post on a regular basis". 

This seems like too much commitment and too much work to me.  I'm sorry, but the microscopic particle of internet space you have created is not the center of my universe.  I don't promise anything, not even to people in real life, in the real world.  Get real.

3.  Social Sites, just like the real world, are full of Creepers.  Sad but true, but on the internet social site, Creepers can hide the fact that they're creepers for a longer period of time than they might be able to in the real world.  And Creepers hate being called out when you spot them and aim a finger at them and call 'em as you see 'em.  "What, what are you talking about?" they stutter. 

4.  You join a site, decide for whatever reason that you don't like it, or it's just not for you, and then discover that deleting your page and information is not an option, or is such a twisted garbled (maybe deliberately confusing) process, that your page is left tacked to a weary crappy site like an old sticky note on the bathroom mirror.

5.  Everyone ignores you, or they communicate only by leaving images in your comment box.  Um, this is a Social Site.  We're suppose to T-A-L-K to each other.  And for me, this does not mean that you leave an occasional meme in the comment box.  I think people resort to leaving images just so they don't have to actually COMMUNICATE with each other.  I would rather see a single sentence, even something like, "My cat died today, and I got a parking ticket.  It was a rough day.", rather than one of a gazillion generic images found on the internet.  At least this single sentence TELLS me something about this person!

I don't leave comments.  It is a huge waste of time.  If I have something to actually SAY to you, I'll do that, but life is too short to spend it leaving multiple images on multiple pages of multiple strangers.

6.  A site won't let you see what it's like, or browse it's content, before you join.  How in the hell are you suppose to know if you even want to be a member if you can't see anything first??  Give me a break.

Bubble, Bubble, Toil n' Trouble

 
 
 I get so many requests from people who want me to sit down and put a spell together for them.  I don't think they realize 1) how time consuming this would be to do for just one individual, not to mention the many other requests coming in; 2) that I work 5 days a week at a mundane job (well, it's 5 days a week, but I guess I can't call working in a metaphysical shop "mundane").
 
These requests most frequently come in at my blog Magickal Connections at the bottom of the three "Spells & Potions" pages.  These pages contain FREE spells that I've taken the time to put together and post on my blog for everyone's use.  However, I have a very strong feeling that some people don't even begin to read through them, they want me to do all that and pick one out for them.  If money were no issue and I had all the time in the world to do anything I want, I'm sure it would be fun putting spells together for people to help them get through all their trials and tribulations.
 
But money and time are an issue in my life.  I have replied to people in the comments that I WILL help them put a spell together that they can cast themselves, and I will answer any questions that they have to the best of my ability-- but this is not free.  I charge for my time.
 
It's $60.00 for a half hour phone consultation.
 
 
A less expensive service that I offer at my site connected to spell casting is a Candle Altar Service.  For a small fee I'll fix and dress and burn a spell candle for you, and I'll take the remains of that spell to make you a mojo bag that I'll mail to you.
 
This service is $21.99 for a single candle, or $61.99 for a triple candle spell.
 
 
First, please make use of these three pages of dozens and dozens of FREE spells.  They're all categorized to make finding what you really need as easy as possible.
 
 
Much love & blessings from The Witch's Corner ~ Amythyst

Zodiac Signs! ~ Today's Cards for YOU!

Hello to all my Zodiacs!  The following tarot reads are quick n’ fast one card pulls with a flash of insight. (Kind of like the horoscope briefs you’ll find in the newspaper.)  If you want a longer, in-depth, personal reading You Know Where to Find Me!  I’m using Pagans Way Tarot for these mini-readings, by Anna Franklin.

Aquarius ~ Temperance
Some Aquarians are going to be set free, free from unnecessary strife and worry; from unnecessary responsibility; free from whatever is adding an extra burden to your life through your own unique set of circumstances.  It’s time to find balance in your life.  Those things that disrupt balance will be smoothed out; those things will be eliminated; those things will be solved.  Aquarius, your path will go from bumpy, impaired, and pot-holed, to smooth and unencumbered.

Capricorn ~ 6/Wands
It’s time to win, Capricorn, time to be the victor.  This is your chance to grab the golden ring and taste the sweet taste of successful accomplishment.  If you’ve been working hard towards a specific goal, you will reach this milestone very soon with glorious results.  If you’ve been plodding away at everyday mundane life consistently and responsibly, you’re going to receive an acknowledgment for your efforts, your stamina, and your dedication.

Pisces ~ Knight/Wands
You’re in for some high adventure that’s going to come at you unexpectedly and at a rather fast pace, so hang onto your hats, Pisces!  If this is an individual in your life, or a new connection, you’re going to find their enthusiasm and pace for life rather difficult to keep up with at times.  Since they are the spontaneous “action-before-thought” type of person, you dear Pisces are going to have to be the level-headed one.  However, don’t resist the pull to adventure that this Knight brings; it will pull you out of your rut and bring you new and satisfying experiences.

Aries ~ 3/Swords (reversed)
Dear Aries, you suffer from a broken heart so often, whether it be with a romantic partner, or other keenly felt disappointments in life.  Did you ever wonder if it’s you who’s setting yourself up for these disappointments?  Sometimes you ask too much, and sometimes you accept too little, from other people.  Turn the tables, be decisive (which is difficult for some of you).  You have the ability to turn this around, put this card upright by sticking to your guns and more closely examining motives…both yours as well as someone else’s.

Taurus ~ Strength
The universe has big plans for some of you, and the course that this is taking you on will require strength, stamina, determination, and faith.  Know that you are not alone.  Your spirit guide or animal totems are surrounding you, protecting you, lending you their energy.  You will come through, perhaps not entirely unscathed, but wiser and stronger for the experience.  Embrace what the universe sends you, even when it appears challenging, this is how you’re going to grow, Taurus.

Gemini ~ Ace/Cups
Aces are doorways, Gemini, and the cups leads to relationships, romance, new people, or a very special person in your life.  For single Gemini’s, expect someone new and interesting to cross your path.  Married Gemini’s, you’re going to experience your committed relationship on a new level; you’re going to find yourself in a place that moves to a new and deeper stage mentally, spiritually, and physically; you’re going to feel very grateful for this connection in your life and you’ll be able to see it from a new perspective with new eyes.  Your cup runneth over.

Cancer ~ The Lady
Cancers, Mother Nature and her glorious fertile world are going to make a unique connection with you this year.  Communication is highlighted; coupling; birth; re-birth; and renewal are in the picture, whether this is signifying a physical fertility and the birth of a child, or creative fertility and the birth of new ideas and new projects.  Your world will flourish with abundance, rich and earth-based.

Leo ~ 6/Wands (reversed)
Leo, you may have been on a losing streak lately, but that’s all going to change; you can turn it around.  Examine what’s been causing this string of bad luck:  personal decisions; the individuals you’re connecting with; some other cause unique to your own situation??  Find the rotten apple, the thorn in your side, then get rid of it.  I have a feeling some of you Leo’s will be taken by surprise with this revelation, not all who come to us in the guise of “friend” are sincere and genuine.  And then, you’re also going to have to check on one more possiblity… Is it YOU that’s holding yourself back?

Virgo ~ 9/Pentacles
You’re not quite satisfied, Virgos!  Our life is one long search for happiness and perfection, for contentment and success.  A lot of you Virgos feel that you’re missing the mark, it’s that “almost there” feeling, but something seems to be absent.  It might be your desire for perfectionism that leaves you feeling this way.  You’ve got a great life; you’ve done, been, and experienced about everything you’ve wished; you have all the things other people may envy you for:  a good mate; a good job; the setting that you desire to live in; extra-curricular activities that hum with your energy.  Learn to appreciate where you’re at Right This Moment, enjoy what you’ve attained– stop worrying about acquiring more!

Libra ~ Elder
There’s going to be some new growth and insights for many Libras.  Aha-light-bulb moments are going to be going off creating a spectacular light show with all the Libras out there who will be picking up new knowledge, understanding, and insights.  Wisdom is coming your way, Libra.  Questions will be answered, problems solved, something you may have wondered about for a long time will finally find the light of revelation shining upon it.  Grab this knowledge and run with it…knowledge is power, as the old saying goes.

Scorpio ~ Princess/cups
Messages coming through for Scorpio will be focused on love and relationships.  Some of you Scorpios may find yourself riding off into the sunset, either with a fairy tale happy ending golden glow; or with a let’s get out of here and start over spirit of adventure.  This princess is going to be persistent. Some Scorpios out there are overlooking something wonderful that’s right under their nose.  Look at the options and opportunities around you before you get the wild itch to take off to yonder parts trying to find love, or fulfillment, opportunities, or success.  It’s closer than you think, Scorpio.  (If it were a snake, it would of bit you, as my grandmother would say.)

Sagittarius ~ Justice (reversed)
No, life isn’t always fair, Sagittarius, and this is a fact.  But don’t get so caught up in the injustice of it all that you stop trying, stop fighting, stop stepping up to the plate.  Sometimes life deals us some tricky cards (no pun intended) and we have to face what’s on the table.  Some of you may either find yourself dealing with personal issues that seem unfair, unjust, or just plain cruel; and others will actually find yourself interacting with the legal system, or attorneys, to take care of upcoming issues.  Hang in there, Sagittarius, Lady Justice will triumph in the end.

Personal Connections

Ostara (and particularly the Christian Easter) have a very personal, shocking, and even traumatic connection for me.  You might say it was life-changing for my entire family.  My experience is included in this blog post, along with Ostara correspondences, information, and recipes.
