Welcome to my blog!
I don't know how your phones and devices work, but the videos and the links work better when I scroll to the bottom of my phone and click on View Web Version. If you don't, you're going to miss out on all sorts of cool stuff that is included in the right sidebar... and it's prettier.
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.
It’s that time of month again! This post is a reminder that tomorrow (Friday, May 26th, 3-7pm) I’ll be giving Tarot Readings at Next Millennium, 3141 N 93rd St, in Omaha NE. Readings are $20 for 15 minutes. You should get there early and Sign Up on the sign-in sheet for your spot. The shop closes at 7PM…I will not start a reading after 6:45.
Doing readings at Next Millennium this year has been such a hoot! I don’t know how often I get aked, “Can I get a personal reading with you?”…Well, the answer is “Yes, you can!” All you have to do is show up at Next Millennium on this date and sign in. Not to mention that while you’re there, you can browse and shop in the largest metaphysical shop in the American Mid-west!
Be sure to check out your MOON and RISING signs, there may be more than one video that is relevant for you. If you don’t know what your moon and rising signs are. Here’s links to FREE calculators that will help you figure it out.
BOOKS, by author Amythyst Raine @ Amazon ~ Follow this link and you will be magically transported to my Amazon Author Page. My books are also available at Barnes & Noble, or any fine bookstore near you. ~ http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B004NMWMX4
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.
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.
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.
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.
