new in the shop: BREAKTHROUGH {Meditative Tarot Tea}

I’m still riding this wonderful wave of energy granted by the New Moon in Aries. I offer up a tea that I blended on instinct while sitting with the new moon. It was one of those blends that was too good not to share and it just so happened to fit the King of Wands perfectly. It’s got that perfect mix of energy and inspiration and risk and manifestation and I want you to enjoy it as much as I did.

Harness the King of Wands’ energy with Breakthrough and take the leap forward. This blend guides you to take the chance on yourself and reminds you betting on your spirit is always the safest bet. Let this magic move you into the confidence needed to break through any obstacles that come to initiate your growth.

New Moon in Aries Breakthrough Spread

We’re tapping into the Ram’s energy as we dive fully into Spring. It’s the blooming time of manifestation and breaking through the toughest of obstacles still left over from winter. In that spirit, I offer up this Breakthrough Spread.

  1. Where is there space for new growth? This position shows you where there may best be time and space to start up something new. Pay attention to this card. What shows up here may give you a hint about whether you should even proceed right now. It’s perfectly alright to take a beat and come back next week or even next month.
  2. What you already have to assist you. We never move into challenges completely helpless. There is always something within us already ready to help us grow forward.
  3. What are you missing in order to proceed? That being said there is always something new to learn- and we may have to learn as we go. This card gives us a heads up for whatever resource that may be.
  4. What may show up as an obstacle? This card illuminates your path to challenges that may pop up.
  5. What may show up as a blessing? This card illuminates your path to gifts that may pop up.
  6. Where is the point of breaking through? You can take this position as one that illuminates either an outcome or a lesson learned.

Ostara Blessings!

I’m an educator delaying the onset of a Monday after Spring Break so here’s a late night one-card reading for Ostara.

Six of Fire from the Mythical Goddess Tarot

Forgiveness – Six of Fire from the Mythical Goddess Tarot

What lovely guidance to welcome Ostara!

The vernal equinox is a beautiful time to start new nourishing habits and make sweet promises to self. Here’s one I’m making for myself.

I forgive my shortcomings and failures and mistakes and go into this new season with clear fire. My final act of release for people and situations that harmed me is to forgive them and move forward.

Growth is uncomfortable and messy and that has to be okay too. There’s a lot to forgive in that process, for yourself and others. You don’t have to forget, but you gotta lose the weight of all that.

Happy Ostara, dear ones!

Full Moon in Virgo Crossings with a Mind the Gap Spread

I welcome this full moon as a bridge from Winter to Spring as we await Ostara. In Virgo, the full moon calls us to take an account of where we are at, and where we want to go. Mixed in with the magic of a Spring sabbat and it’s all about grounding our vision in practical details. We need a plan for where we are going.

In that spirit I offer this Mind the Gap Spread for moving into new spaces with clarity. It’s named for that jump/step we take to get on a bridge leading to the other side.

Few bridges in life are seamlessly connected to either of the shores they connect. There’s almost always a space between shore and bridge- and so it is in life cycles.

What is that space for you? Is it filled with doubt, uncertainty, or is it a thrill of excitement running down your spine as you approach your next destination?

Whatever it is, pay attention to that space. It is giving you a glimpse into what the bridge might hide- a torrent beneath, another path, an abyss…there’s a lesson there too. Particularly as not all bridges are equal, and should you fall it’s always good to know what or where you are falling in to.

As you step into the transition, be mindful of your movements. Those first steps lay the foundation of where you are going. The preparation you do now is absolutely vital. Let the full moon in Virgo’s powered up attention detail lead you in that work.

And as always, keep an eye on your goal and what it really is rather than what it is supposed to be. A lot can happen in transition and you might find that the other side looks very different up close than what it did from afar.

All the best on your magical journey ❤
