Oracle Card Reading for July 24 – 30

Despite almost being 36, I bought a unicorn themed coloring book the other day. Then when I saw this unicorn deck on my shelf I thought “aha! I have to use these cards this week!”Β  So here you go…

Have a lovely week πŸ™‚

Tarot craft: Make Your Own Tarot Jar!

This afternoon as I was reading Andy Matzner’s The Tarot Activity Book, I was inspired to try one of his Tarot projects: creating my very own Tarot display jar!

I’m going to give you a run-down on how it went…but first I want to tell you about Andy’s book.

The Tarot Activity Book is just that – a whole book full of Tarot crafts, journalling exercises and fun activities, none of which involve reading the cards – which is refreshing.

Tarot’s usefulness extends far beyond the realm of readings and this book helps you use Tarot in ways you’ve never imagined.

One of the activities in his book is to make a Tarot mason jar. Mason jars have become trendy ever since hipsters started drinking green juice out of them with straws. A cafe in my neighborhood started using them as lightbulbs and the place became an instant hipster haven. Hordes plaid, beards and tuques suddenly began beating their door down! It was wild!

Step 1: fill mason jar with salt or sand

You only need about 1″ of salt or sand. You could use soil if you’re really earthy, or that pink Himalayan sea salt if you like pretty shit.

This is to provide a base to put stuff in later.

 

Step 2: decorate the jar

I skipped this step because I’m lazy and also because I just knew it would end up looking like crap.

Andy suggests using acrylic paint to pretty up the inside or outside of the jar or even gluing bits of fabric or papers on it. Someone good at crafts would do a good job of this – me? Not so much. I know my limits.

Step 3: choose a Tarot card to go in the jar!

The Star from Dame Darcy’s Mermaid Tarot

This is the best part. I chose The Star because it helps me remember to relax and let go and stop trying to control everything and everyone.

If you’re trying to manifest something, you could choose a Tarot card that represents what you want to bring into your life.

Or, if you want to channel a particular card’s energy, like the Queen of Wands or The Empress, you could choose that for the jar.

OR… if your a fan of doing daily one card draws, you could put your daily draw card in your jar and change it up each day.

 

Step 4: Put nice objects in the jar

Choose some objects that relate to your chosen Tarot card or that are special to you and place them in the bottom of the jar, around the card.

I chose some pretty colored crystals, but you could use jewelry, sea shells, flowers, and other trinkets.

My cat decided to help me with this step by knocking all my crystals off the table, one at a time…

 

Step 5: Illuminate! (optional)

Put a battery operated candle or string of lights in your Tarot jar to create a magical glow!

I first used a string of fairy lights for my Tarot jar but I didn’t love how they seemed to obstruct my view of the Tarot card. A smaller string would have been ideal.

I then tried using a real tealight and this was a terrifying disaster! I almost burnt my Tarot card and the flame was so bright it also seemed to obstruct the card.

I think the best option is one of those fake plastic tealights that use a battery. It will create a soft glow without turning your jar into a Tarot inferno!

Unfortunately I didn’t have any battery powered tealights on hand, so I’m just making due with the show-stealing string lights until I find some.

Step 6: Display your Tarot jar!

Proudly display your Tarot jar somewhere you’ll see it, like your desk, bookshelf or bedside table.

Whenever I look at my Tarot jar, I’m reminded that there is order in the chaos and that everything is working out the way it needs to. It’s okay for me to let go and trust…

Check out The Tarot Activity Book!

If you liked this crafty Tarot exercise and find yourself thirsting for more, Andy Matzner’s book has lots to offer. With almost 100 Tarot activities and exercises, this book helps you go beyond readings to develop a whole new dimension to your Tarot journey.

Check it out on Amazon

Are you keeping secrets? You should be!

Veronica Noir is my evil Tarot reading twin. Man-eater by night, day drinker by day, Tarot reader on Fridays. She’s hear to ejaculate some spice and deviousness into your life!

high priestess

Housewives Tarot

Secrets are the spice of life! I love them. Nothing spruces up a boring party than hearing a delicious secret…or revealing one of your own!

People who say things like “secrets are toxic” or “secrets ruin relationships” don’t know the art of juicy living.

But don’t fret about those basic peeps – leave them to their ham sandwiches and polyester shirts, because you’ve got thrills to give and a life to live!

This Summer is all about secrets – and you can’t have secrets if you just behave yourself all the time πŸ˜‰

So get out there and do things that need to be hidden, things you wouldn’t want just anyone knowing about. Before you know it you’ll be a beacon of mystery, living a life of scintillating drama and bliss!

Please note: Veronica is taking the rest of the Summer off and will return in September with renewed snark and sass.

How to Read Tarot for Yourself (When You’re Feeling Emotional)

Have you ever been told you shouldn’t read Tarot for yourself when you’re upset or stressed out?

This is because your brain (and intuition) are effected by strong emotions and it can make for a biased, unhelpful reading.

But here’s the thing: this is when you really want to do a reading! Who waits until their life is perfect and stress-free to do a reading? NOBODY!

And while there are other ways to deal with stress and uncertainty, like binge watching Glow on Netflix, scarfing a whole box of shortbread cookies and yelling at your boyfriend, doing a Tarot reading might actually be the healthiest option.

So the challenge is this: how do you read Tarot for yourself when you’re feeling upset, excited or stressed out? How do you stop your desires, fears and emotions from biasing a reading?

Luckily, there’s a way!

Step One: Instead of reading about your specific issue, ask yourself how do I want to feel in this situation?

A couple of months ago I was dealing with a painful and frightening health issue. I was faced with having to make a big decision regarding surgery. Because I felt so charged up about my health, I knew it would be impossible to do an unbiased reading about it.

When I asked myself how do I want to feel (in relation to my health issue)? The answer was calm and clear. I wanted clarity as to what steps I needed to take and I wanted to feel calm and relaxed about it all.

Step Two: Once you’ve identified how you want to feel, ask your cards: What do I need to do to feel ____________? Then draw a card.

The card I got when I did this was the Four of Wands.

Hanson-Roberts Tarot

To me, the Four of Wands is about community and coming together. It seemed to be telling me to reach out to the community of people who’ve experienced the same thing as me and gather information and support.

So that’s what I did! Afterwards I felt calmer about the whole thing and clearer about what decision is right for me.

The key is that you are doing a reading about how to feel the way you want to feel in relation to your issue – but not about the issue itself.

You aren’t asking what should I do about my problem? What do I need to know? What’s going on here? – you are simply asking how can I feel the way I want to feel?

It’s a very empowering act and it allows you to pull yourself out of the drama of your problems and make strides in a positive direction.

So next time something is bothering you, try this Tarot exercise and see what happens!

What your underwear says about you…

Today my slutty, evil twin Veronica decided she didn’t want to draw a Tarot card. And why would she when she can read your fortune just by looking at your panties?

I don’t need my Tarot cards to read your fortune. I just need to take a look at your undies!

Did you know that your underwear is a 100% accurate predictor of your personality traits and deep psychological wounds?

It’s okay, most people don’t.

Take a look at your underpants. Here’s what they mean:

If your undies are…

A) Large, cotton and “meh” coloured.
Meh = white, off-white, cream, taupe or beige.

This means your practical, down to earth and know how to get things done. You’re not one to mince words and waste time. You also don’t give a flying f*ck what people thing of you. Congrats!

But there’s a dark side to you. You shun risk and excitement and avoid passion and adventure. You claim to love your stable and predictable life but part of you yearns to feel alive, to experience life in full color!

You can start by adding more color and texture to your undie drawer.

B) Old, worn out, shot elastic, holes, skidmarks and/or period stains.

You are loyal, committed and in it for the long haul. You aren’t one to quit a job just because it totally sucks or abandon your significant other just because they pile on the pounds. Which makes you a good person. Sort of.

Letting go is difficult for you. Your closets are stuffed with crap you no longer need or use. You hold onto jobs, relationships and situations for waaaay longer than you should. Let go already!

You can start by throwing your old panties in the garbage. NO, DON’T USE THEM FOR RAGS. GET RID OF THEM!

C) A lacy G-string, thong or some other weird contraption that is horridly uncomfortable.

You have no problems sacrificing your own personal comfort for a greater cause…even if that “cause” is no panty lines.

You’re one of those people who simply won’t admit when your uncomfortable. It’s not that you want to avoid complaining, it’s that you don’t sense discomfort as a problem, it’s just a normal way of life for you. Which is dark. So dark.

You put other people’s pleasure above your own – so much so that you have forgotten what actually pleases you. You need to pick that thong out of your crack and get back…get back your sense of self entitlement!

D) Fresh, pretty and sexy (in other words, none of the above choices).

You are a well adjusted human being. You enjoy pleasure and treating yourself to nice things. You also like to feel attractive, but not at the expense of your own comfort. You’re practical and smart but you don’t let that stop you from living on the wild side every now and then.

In other words, you can enjoy a martini Sunday (that’s when you drink martinis all day on a Sunday) and still show up for work on Monday looking spiffy! You can say NO to attending boring baby showers and YES to a last minute jaunt to Vegas. You eat melted Boursin on linguini but also enjoy kickboxing and indoor rock climbing.

Congratulations, you’re the least dysfunctional of the bunch!

So, I’m curious, which underpant category did you fall into??? Tell me in the comments below…
