Key words: Structure, Authority, Paternal, Leadership, Stability, Dominion, Power
The emperor appears when we have a need to assume a role of leadership, or it may represent a leader who has come into our lives. You may have a need to identify with a powerful group—religious, ideological, intellectual, economic, or political—and to be one of them. Or you may be associating with someone else who has this need. It may be a time to stabilize a situation or time to focus on worldly achievements.
The Emperor can also represent a father figure and may indicate a father relationship in our lives.
Court cards can represent actual people in our lives or an expression of the energy of that suit. Knights signify periods of transition; the knight of wands represents the spirit of adventure and innovation as well as a possible personal spiritual quest.
The Knight of Wands can also bring good news concerning work or social activities. His glad tidings may relate to almost any anticipated happy event—a journey or vacation, a change of residence or job, an engagement or marriage.
Challenge For The Week
II • Swords
Key words: Indecision, Blocking, Blind to the Truth, Seeking Balance
With her eyes covered, this woman may feel that there is not enough information to make a decision.
This card indicates that you are stuck for some reason. You may be maintaining the situation by putting up a facade and ignoring the underlying tension that exists.
How The Cards Come Together
Our theme this week is telling us that we will have some issues with authority. Our lives will revolve around work (company), government or father-figure (major family) matters.
In our approach to the week we are reminded to remain our charming selves and have an adventurous spirit when dealing with the authority figures…
Keep the ideas flowing and inspire yourself to take a chance. Think about changing your job, starting a project or opening up to a new spiritual adventure.
The challenge being that this is an uncomfortable position to be in, but you aren’t ready to do anything about it yet.
First you must face the truth. It is time to create balance in your life. Face reality and make the tough decisions. If you’re able to do this, good news is coming your way!
Keep in mind that you don’t need a huge piece for the crystal to do it’s job. Palm stones work wonderfully! Additionally, the more that you work with the stones, the stronger the results are.
I recommend that you buy one that fits into the palm of your hand… it’s easier to keep it in your pocket.
How To Choose Which Crystal To Buy
For the more common crystals, I suggest:
Go to the store and gather all of the symptom’s crystals
Line them up
Pick them up one at a time, enclosing the crystal in your fist – it doesn’t have to be tight.
Close your eyes and focus on the crystal and ask if it is meant for you. Experience how each one feels in your hand. Try not to rush. If you take your time, you should feel a bit of electromagnetic energy or warmth from the right stone. Or, perhaps you will just instantly know which is the right one for you once you hold each one of them?
For the more rare crystals, you may have to buy them online. To buy crystals online, follow the steps above, however, try using the pictures as your guide.
Gather and save pictures of each stone to choose from and save them in a separate folder (for easy transition).
With your eyes open, focus your mind on each picture of gemstone separately. Allow your vision to go slightly out of focus… just like daydreaming.
Focus on connecting with the stone, ask if it is meant for you.
Then close your eyes and use your Third Eye (mind’s eye) and imagine holding it in your hand.
Whichever method you use to choose the crystals, buy the stones that felt the most harmonious or bonded to you.
Try not to let the look of a crystal sway your decision.
How To Use The Crystals
To Use Crystals and Gemstones:
For Focused Healing Meditation: Hold over or place on the corresponding chakra listed with each crystal. Then meditate on the symptom, but be clear and concise about what you want healed.
For All Day or General Healing: You can wear these as jewelry, or carry in your pocket.
If you bought what is called a ‘Point’ (one end looks like an arrow) be sure that you use it correctly!
If you want to bring yourself a good property of the stone (such as self love), point it towards yourself.
If you’re trying to let go of a condition (such as low self esteem, or past relationship issues) point it away from you.

This is the Tarot For The Week of May 16-22, 2021. I have pulled 3 cards in a layout that is designed to help us mindfully navigate the week. The video is longer so that you have time to read it all. I would love to hear your comments or suggestions about how to create these better for you as well!
This week I’ve used The Sirian Starseed Tarot by Patricia Cori + Alysa Bartha
Theme Of The Week
This card explores the vast oceans of love and abundance that surround and pour through the universe in all its diversity and beauty, all in perpetual harmony with the divine wisdom of creation.
The dynamic energy of three (depicted in the Sirian Seal) is explosive and forward moving, meaning that all is possible: all can be birthed and rebirthed at will.
Keywords for this card are; mother, bountifulness, flow, Love, creativity, new birth, fertility, and the power of nature.
The card reveals boundless emotion (which can sway to either side of the spectrum), and can therefore be seen in its full light or in the shadow, where unresolved emotions also abound.
Working with Abundance, Ask Yourself:
How do I nurture others and myself?
How can I nurture myself more lovingly?
How am I expressing my maternal love with people that I care for?
How do I express my creative visions?
Approach To The Week
Seeker Of Crystals
Traditional card: Page of Pentacles
The seeker of crystals is a person who is looking (seeking) for opportunities. (S)he is looking for any opportunity or any resource for use. (S)he may be in the midst of an existential cloud, just like a miner in a cave, or, like a chemist is looking for a new and better compound or, a botanist in the rain forest. As a ‘seeker’ we need to use logic, patience and perseverance to find what we’re looking for in an effort to help ourselves expand our resources or knowledge of our physical world (our home, hobbies, education, career and finances.)
How are you going to create your Abundance?
Challenge of The Week
Nine Of Chalices
Traditional Card: 9 Of Cups
The journey up that physical hill from the previous card (The Seeker of Crystals) has brought you to celebrate your successes and achievements, recognizing that the search has helped you realize your dreams.
This card celebrates emotional abundance.
An Egyptian temple guard sits surrounded by all of his full chalices, loving his world, his emotions, and pleasures. The light shines down upon him, and his chalice goblets are there to be enjoyed – like fine wine for the soul. This reveals feelings of great satisfaction, happiness, and fulfilment.
What are you filling your cups with?
How are you celebrating the achievement of your dreams and desires?
Do you realize abundance is your own creation and is always within your reach?
Open yourself up to fully allow the abundance of your home life, family, friends and career to come all the way through to you.
I am writing this blog to inform you all of my Christmas Season Sale. Firstly, I feel that it should be mentioned, that for the majority of us, Christmas time is a joyful time of year. However, there is a minority of those who do not enjoy this time of year as much – those…
I’m SO excited! It’s here! It’s finally here! Black Friday is actually here and I get to offer fantastic savings.

In this weekly tarot reading July 3, 2022, I have used Tarot of Dreams created by Ciro Marchetti.

I must say that after several difficult weeks that we’ve had, this week’s reading is a welcome…
In this weekly tarot reading June 26, 2022 reading, I have used an Oracle Deck rather than the Tarot. When I went to reach for a Tarot deck this week, my Guides advised that, after all of the difficult weeks that we’ve had, we all would need some spiritual nourishment. They then told me to…
In this weekly Tarot Reading June 19-2022, when The Chariot appears, there is a need to control competing forces, whether these are inner conflicts, people, or a situation in your life. Perhaps the solution to the problem at hand is to take the middle road between the conflicting elements. I recommend that you read the…
There are many situations where we can use the journal process. After a bad break up, loosing someone to the “Other Side”, after losing a job, or after a divorce to name a few. Forgiveness and release is essential to this process, so if you are still very angry, you may wish to wait until…
In this weekly Tarot Reading June 12, 2022, it’s time to deal seriously with your life collapsing all around you. Last week you dealt with Judgement.

In our weekly tarot reading for May 22, 2022, we have the Justice card as our Theme For The Week. In reverse, Justice indicates delays in legal matters or unfairness in a situation. If you are the person in power, you may be unduly severe in dispensing punishment. However, I feel that you are more…

In this weekly Tarot Reading, whether referring to your career or personal life, the relationship you hoped for may have been based on deceit or superficiality on the other person’s side.

For the week of April 24, 2022, we are given another message and analogy of control and will power, shown in the Strength (reversed) and Seven of cups (reversed) cards. You might say that we are endangered by our own inner beasts, the force of will, and the need for control. We are reminded that…
In this week’s Tarot Reading, a certain chapter of your life, such as formal education, career placement, or a relationship, is coming to an end. Change is difficult.

It’s time to nurture yourself. You may have been spending too much time caring for others (or you may have recently had a child whose demands have worn you out). You need to take time out for yourself instead of neglecting your own needs. This is a call for self-love, balance, and the awareness that…
When The Moon appears in a reading, it suggests that you should pay more attention to your inner self, your lunar self. The light of the sun enables you to see the world around you, but the moon illuminates what springs naturally from inside you. Click the link to read the blog Continue reading →
Lack of inner balance will inevitably result in downfall. Are you working too much?

We definitely need to draw on our inner strength this week. We feel like we’re enduring a period of poverty (physical, mental or emotional) before turning to the next cycle in our lives. However, we need to refrain from backing down or giving up. Yes, we are feeling let down, and perhaps even feeling sorry…
The universe knows that you have suffered lately but suggests you use your intuition when deciding whether something adheres to or measures up to your original plan. If you feel like your personal life, career or finances don’t make the grade, don’t be afraid to change it. People may call you picky, but you’ll be…
This week we are being asked to carefully review our choices – to use hindsight and our conscience as a guide. Recognize that there are two sides to every story and you have definitely played your part. Put yourself into the other side’s shoes… Ask yourself… What would you have experienced from that perspective? In…

It is quite important to know how to choose the crystals that are a good fit for you. In this post you learn how to correctly choose, buy and use your crystals and gemstones. It’s true that you should buy what you’re drawn to but let’s think about this in terms of kitchen utensils or…
Theme Of The Week: In order to flourish, relationships must be fluid and free rather than overly rigid and controlled by emotional neediness or insecurity. It’s important to master your emotions so that they do not rule the relationship. A partnership based solely on emotion is out of balance. Act from a combination of emotion…
Crystals are rapidly becoming more popular. About 50% of my clientele have admitted to buying them but only half of those people know that they’re meant for specific uses or personal symptoms.
