🌬🔥🌊🌿 4 Elements by @owlandbonestarot for #tarotmarch ~ Divide the deck into suits (Cups🌊 Wands🔥 Swords🌬 Pentacles🌿) + Major Arcana. Pull card from each for insight into your current state, with the Major card representing the point of it all. I really loved this spread+it gave me an excuse to make a mini-altar, so yay. 🌬 Air: 7 of Swords. I've had a lot of thoughts surface recently out of nowhere, memories of times when someone said things I accepted as true (example, "You have to be more outgoing in order to be good at this" or "You aren't independent unless you make money") + now I'm suddenly realizing in every.single.memory, someone was crossing a boundary + totally out of line... but my perspective was so warped, I believed them! No more of THAT deception. 🙅 From now on I'mma bust out that sword + say "None of your business." 🔥 Fire: 3 of Wands. I'm learning to trust my own judgement + envision my future the way I want, relying less on others' guidance+support. 🌊 Water: Daughter of Cups. Very emotional, I'm open to beautiful experiences, but I'm also vulnerable. I shy away from conflict + avoid anyone harsh. Speaking up for myself takes practice. I also have the openness+optimism that fuels creativity. 🌿 Earth: Father of Pentacles. I work steadily+patiently toward my goals, but on the surface it might seem nothing is happening.✨ Major Arcana, "Why?": The Hermit. I'm being driven to go within + retreat from others as I heal the detrimental patterns I've developed in how I relate. Once I learn to value my self internally + protect with healthy boundaries, heeding my inner wisdom, then I can rise to meet others from a place of sincerity.

first of 3 for prompt #19 in @otm_academy#createthisoracledeck2018 challenge - just one line.
these are all titles - ONE line - of paintings in matt adrian aka the mincing mockingbird's series of bird paintings. you know the 'i'd sell you to satan for one corn chip' troubled birds? THAT guy
when i saw the new painting titles my first reaction was highly-satisfied evil laughter, and then that part of my brain that turns EVERYTHING into a deck, said, '... oracle.' so here it is.
basic meanings of the cards would be : self-destructive behaviour & all the attending reasons for it - thriving on drama & discord - supreme pettiness & grudge-holding - an organic / biological form of union & serendipity... ish. backgrounds are all corvid feathers because obviously.
[i hope this doesn't need to be said, but just in case : i will never, EVER pass another artist's work off as my own, nor attempt to profit off of it. decks like this are experimental projects and meant for my own personal enjoyment o n l y ]

✨🐚 A MEDITATION ON THE ANIMA, MASCULINITY AND THE PATRIARCHY PT. 4.2 🐚✨
To illustrate what I mean, let’s for now see and interpret Jung’s proposed anima development as a progression from “primitive” to more “spiritual” expressions and realisations of the Feminine. With this in mind, if One did not resonate with the Essence of “Eve” as a “primitive” expression of the Feminine, then One may choose to change “Eve” to a different Feminine figure found in Reality who has qualities that are more aligned with One’s sense of the Feminine in this state. Alternatively, if you did resonate with the Essence of “Eve” in Jung’s proposed anima personifications, then it may be useful to do some shadow work on the Abrahamic religious cosmology as well as the creation myths that surround this anima expression to come to a more balanced and lucid realisation of Eve’s “role” within the Masculine-oriented psyche and patriarchal society.
So how may One truly See the Feminine if one possesses a Masculine-oriented psyche? Start by truly Seeing the Feminine through the various physical manifestations found within this Reality from a relatively lucid state of awareness. In order to do so, you may find that reflecting on the Feminine from a cis-gendered perspective “easier” to do so as a starting point.
For example, I chose to reflect upon the reproductive system of the “cis-female”, specifically the yoni, womb and ovaries, in order to realise the Essence of the Feminine when in its balanced and well-integrated state of flow: “The Feminine is in All, a part of Life itself. It is the void through which All intangible forms have, are and will be created –– All is gently held within this cavernous space before descending into physical Reality. This sacred portal leads One towards ecstatic states of bliss and surrender yet unequivocally sheds the old in divine unison with the gracious cycles of Luna...”

Monday + Tuesday Tarot Meditation •Justice + Shaman of Discs•
A lack of balance in an area of your life may have you questioning whether you’re doing enough or maybe even too much. There’s a message of unfairness and imbalance behind Justice but this archetype also denotes a call to accountability. Not only for yourself but holding others accountable is just as important. There may be an issue revolving around your boundaries at the moment. If you feel wronged in any way, make sure you’re expressing yourself but not in a way that points blame at the other. Our relationships are mirrors that help us resolve the old junk that we’re unaware of. Try your best to be grateful for the experience you’re being taught through this relationship dynamic. It’s important to see both sides of the coin and to approach any conflict with a win/win outcome for everyone involved.
Nurturing (or a lack thereof) may be a challenge right now. Although it’s important to have supportive relationships, you must learn to nurture yourself first and foremost. Financial independence may be a primary focus for some. On an intangible level, you’re learning to validate yourself without relying on external sources. This is an important lesson being integrated for the collective as we come into the power of the divine masculine, activating more security and confidence within us. There may be a focus of healing childhood wounds surrounding poverty, low self-esteem, and even body image issues. Any negative experiences related to those karmic lessons are being resolved. Lean into the discomfort. Trust this refining process that is deepening your roots and nurturing your growth. •
1) Page of pentacles
There are so many things to learn in life and you are a wonderful student. Life is giving you new offers and new opportunities.
You may need to develop new skills now and learn many things . It's time to build a strong foundation in any area of your life.
2) 9 of pentacles
Those long hours of work is finally paying off and you are now ready to enjoy the fruits of your labour. You will feel more independent and powerful this week. You should spend some time to pamper yourself with all the fine things of life.
Sudden, unexpected, shocking and unpleasant news/events/ experiences . This week may be a tough one as you may have to deal with some unexpected events. Fight or flight hormone will be higher and do or die feelings will taint all your decisions.
Although changes are painful but they are really needed for a better future.
Have a wonderful week everyone.
✨🐚 A MEDITATION ON THE ANIMA, MASCULINITY AND THE PATRIARCHY PT. 4.1 🐚✨
So with this in mind, I’d like to share some insights that I sense the Masculine-oriented psyche may find of use when working with their inner anima/Femininity. Please note that whilst you may choose to resonate with and/or self-apply the insights found in this meditation may serve you well along your Way, it is important that One does so from a relative state of grounded and clear awareness. And, as always, this is not a substitute for conventional medical/psychological interventions from a licensed professional in your local area:
1. Learn to truly See the Feminine ~ So far in this meditation, I have explored Jung’s theory of the anima to draw One’s awareness to the predominant Way that Masculine-oriented individuals who were raised in Westernised patriarchal societies may consciously and/or unconsciously interact with the Feminine. However, I also mentioned that those who identify as a Masculine-oriented individual may not necessarily resonate with the Feminine personifications found within Jung’s theory for variety of reasons.
Whilst this current lack of resonance may certainly be the case, it is also important to acknowledge just how dominant Jung’s proposed manifestations of the anima are projected onto the Feminine and enacted within mainstream spheres of consciousness. For, although we may move outside of such spheres, Mind is interconnected via various interdependent streams of consciousness that influence and lead us either ever closer towards or “away” from Seeing the Essence within All.
That being said, I do feel that once the Masculine-oriented individual and/or psyche starts to effectively work through Jung’s proposed theory for anima development, then alternative resonant and/or “elevated” versions of said anima may be realised.

I’ve had a pretty good Sunday so far...actually went to the gym, just ate a kick ass açaí bowl and now drinking another cup of coffee while the tiny demon sleeps. 😂
Might as well pull cards for #themarchtarot...
My self image and how it holds me back.
I dk. I’d like to say that I really don’t give a shit whether people like me or not, and most of the time that’s very true. At work and managing many people though I feel like I am always walking the fine line of wanting to be their friend but also being respected. It can be very challenging at times when I know I need to do the right thing but may hurt someone’s feelings. It’s tough to be an effective manager when you have personal relationships with people. 🤷🏻♀️
Daily message.. The Seven of Cups warns us to be careful. We may be a little bit naive about our work and we can be influential and credulous. We may be captured by illusions and deceptions. Be careful, because sometimes your view is only an illusion and tricking yourself.
Now we can’t see quite clearly so we should wait a bit. Let's face the reality of the situation. otherwise we may not get the best judgment. There is something deceitful, insecure and misty. We may now be living in a fantasy. This often indicates illusions we are building on while we seek a futile dream. This card isn’t always negative and it isn’t all the time a bad dream. Dreams are fantastic and dreams have to be chased. The question is whether we are defending a false or a real dream. In any case, we must make sure that our dream is indeed feasible. Realize your dreams and don’t just dream them. Dream of being good and to have something wonderful to come to birth. Even these dreams have to be.

🍀 Luck of the Irish 🍀 for #tarotmarch day 17 🔮 Where do you want luck? 4 of Pentacles. It makes total sense to have this card here. I've been laser-focused on manifesting abundance basically forever. 😂 Every new moon, sabbat, intention setting opportunity, I'm like, "Abundance please!" The universe is saying, WE GET IT. If I keep asking, I stay tense; if I relax knowing my request is out there + focus on all I HAVE manifested, I'm more vibrationally aligned to receive it. 🔮 Where do you need luck? Son of Swords. My 1st reaction is that this represents interpersonal situations in my life, esp. with air signs ♊️♎️♒️ when it becomes painfully obvious that I'm bad with confrontation, especially when the other person is quick-witted + cutting with their words. I can't react fast enough + agonize over what I didn't say OR I let myself be pulled into an argument + get off track + hate myself later. BUT this can also mean I could use a boost overcoming my own extreme tendencies, esp. obsessive/overcritical thoughts. In some situations I actually NEED this son/knight's energy to speak up + trust myself over others' opinions. 🔮 Where do you have luck? 3 of Wands. My insight is my gift. I really do have this uncanny ability to just KNOW something is right. I make my best decisions that way. I've been lucky to have supportive people in my life at just the right times. Trusting my sense of direction is my luckiest bet. 🔮 What can I do to bring luck? Daughter of Pentacles. Ground myself + feel secure in the beginnings of abundance that have already appeared in my life. Have patience. The daughter/page of Pentacles is a harbinger of something slow to appear + also represents childlike openness, optimism, acceptance. Be content to do my work from day to day for the enjoyment of it, not for recognition, not from a sense of frantic hustle, but centered in trust.

BTS in Winifred's World: I am collaborating with my good friend and visual artist, Melissa Pandina, to create an Oracle Deck, ORACLE OF THE SEER. Melissa is working on the card for Offerings. We took the reference photos for this card last summer down by the river near my house where I often do spiritual work and ceremony. We set up a full spread of offerings to Oshun that day and @annajoyhealing was our lovely model. This might be my new favorite card! #oracleoftheseer
I feel a pull to bring back #SoulfulSaturday after a break of a couple months. And what better timing than during the #PiscesNewMoon? Pisces, after all, is the dreamer...the intuitive...the psychic. So, without further ado, here’s your Here's your #intuitivetarot reading for this week.
Healing comes from expansion...from opening up...to love, compassion, and forgiveness. It takes work, yes. And finding the love, compassion, and forgiveness - for both yourself and the other - is not always easy. But it is worth it.
Where are you feeling constricted?
Where do you feel the need to maintain rigid control?
To build walls?
To defend yourself?
Those are the areas where you need to let in light and love and compassion for yourself and others. What is the core wound that makes you so defensive and constricted? Take some time to identify that, and use the energy of this New Moon in Pisces to bring some much needed healing to your life.
I hope this resonated with you! Do let me know in the comments.
