THE QUEEN OF HEARTS




AUGUST 31, 1997-AUGUST 31, 2017 - 20 YEARS GONE PRINCESS DIANA

                      
photo from viola.bz

It has been 20 years since Princess Diana died in that horrible car accident in Paris, and I was trying to find something tarot related or similar, to write about that situation. I seem to remember Diana used astrologers, and I did find some things that people claim to have reported to her, as her astrologers. I'm not sure if they are for real though. It's even reported Diana  had a  few premonitions about being in a car accident, or brakes being tampered with, or something along those lines.
I did find something really interesting by an astrologer named Garry Heaton. I wont give it all to you, as there is so much information on the site. I will just give you his astrological take on the accident event:
The Event Chart
The car which killed Diana, Dodi and the chauffeur crashed at 00.27 (22.27 GMT) on 31st August, 1997 in Paris [ 48N52 ; 2E20 ]. 18 GEM 12 rises - the sign of the media - ruled by Mercury the winged messengers who chased the saloon car on their motorbikes into the fatal tunnel alongside the River Seine.
Just as the dying light of the Sun sets on the western horizon so here Diana's ascendant degree is setting at the end of an illustrious life. Mercury, as ruler of the ascendant, is the car that crashed and all who died with it. Here we find Mercury strong in technically competent Virgo but retrograding from a sextile to Mars and crashing into combustion with the Sun. We should also note that the event took place on a Saturn day and at 00.05 the Mars hour began. Remember, the planetary day begins with sunrise. Both malefics ruled this period of time and with the ascendant ruler retrograding from Mars and into the Sun the volatile nature of the period was magnified.
The Moon in Leo on the IC is Diana, the "Queen of Hearts", the royal lady whose life ended in the 4th house. She applies to Venus in Libra in the 5th house of romance as she speeds away in the car to be alone with her lover. The reaction to her death is shown by the Moon's close opposition to retrograde Jupiter in Aquarius, conjunct the MC. The injustices of media intrusion into the lives of royalty and the famous are questioned, with the possibility of new legislation suggested by some politicians. With her ascendant-ruler, Jupiter in Aquarius, re-appearing on the MC of the event chart we see the symbol of Diana's humanitarian efforts hoisted like a flag, its retrogradation suggesting the end of a woman who was a friend to the world.
The 3 planets in the 4th house can be taken as the 3 people who were killed in the crash. If the Moon is Diana and Mercury is the chauffeur then the Sun must be Dodi. Mercury is overpowered by the Sun's rays so it's possible that the chauffeur, though possibly drunk at the time, could have been acting under directions when he raced away from the paparazzi motor cyclists at 120 mph. Notice also the chain of dispositors. The Moon, for Diana, is disposed by the Sun, her lover Dodi but he, in turn, is disposed by retrograde Mercury, the chauffeur. Mercury is also applying to a parallel with Saturn (45 ' orb) and Saturn rules the 8th house of death and is also the universal significator of mortaility.
The Sun was applying to a contraparallel with Pluto in the 6th house of servants (8' orb), having separated from a square on the 26th. Dodi could have been intent on wielding his influence by encouraging the chauffeur to ignore the speed limit. Although Venus is almost 4 degrees away from the opposition with Saturn, the contraparallel between them is less than 1 degree, making the impact more immediate. In a natal horoscope this aspect often shows nothing more than hard lessons in love but in an event chart such as this it suggests the relationship was destined to end.

PSYCHIC THINGS IN YOUR HOROSCOPE CHART ;)







Psychic things in your horoscope chart?- I don't know much in-depth about natal charts. I have favorite astrologers such as Linda Goodman (now deceased), Rick Levine, Jeff Jawer (also deceased), and at one time the team of Rick and Jeff (awesome team). I know there are many other greats out there for sure! I also know I am  a Sagittarius sun sign, moon in Gemini, rising Pisces, and I was born on a full moon. I had a friend that did charts, and because those are all dual signs and also I'm born on full moon, I had to ask, "ummm, does that mean I'm a bit off"?  She laughed and said, "nope, it means you adapt easy". However, she then went on to tell me they are mutable signs as well...Oh boy! Apparently I have something in my chart that points to being psychic, but I''m not sure if its what they call a kite. I was told i have a kite, but its small..

KIte-The Kite pattern is a fairly rare chart configuration. It is a Grand Trine that has an extra planet attached at one end, which makes the point at the top of a "Kite." The Grand Trine is made up of "trine" lines creating one big triangle, which is easy energy in itself and then two sextile lines (more easy energy) create the top of the Kite.. 
 
kite example

I have something called 33 Trine Moon - Neptune, which sounds a little esoteric when i read the blurb...
Anyways, for those of you that do know they have the kite in their natal chart, this is what it can mean:(and I guess it all depends on which planets and houses its points land in. Please forgive me any astrologers out there, cause I'm still learning this bit. https://blog.starwheelastrology.com/the-kite-chart-aspect-figure/  I'll post this on the side bar too
I love astrology, but it can seem complicated at times when you get into the charts. This would be me trying to do a chart:

Selenite Towers and Meditating





The Selenite Tower-






Selenite and what it is good for-

Selenite is a stone of mental clarity. This clarity enhances mental flexibility and enables strong decision making abilities.  It can affect every day life as full mental clarity into play to lesson confusion and mental disorientation.
Selenite is also a stone of truth and honesty. This promotes good business practices as well as honesty in other types of relationships.
Selenite is associated with the moon it is named for. This brings associations and energies of the unconscious, instinct, subconscious, and emotional well-being.  The moon association also brings water energy to the fore, creating the flexibility and intuition.
Though Selenite is associated with the moon, it is also an angel stone. It is used for contacting and communicating with angels for guidance. It can also be used for finding and working with other spirit guides.
Selenite remove energy blocks, particularly from the physical and etheric bodies. It can also remove energy blocks in the bodies of other crystals and stones. This makes it excellent for enhancing the properties of other stones and for clearing and charging them. It is also an excellent stone for protection grids. Selenite is used by some to block or ameliorate EMF radiation.
 Selenite is a stone of  powerful intuition and psychic awareness through its influence on the third eye chakra.  You can access past lives and do past life work and healing with it. It is also beneficial for psychic efforts, especially clairvoyance.
Meditation and spiritual development are eased and promoted by selenite. Meditations become sparkling clear over time when working with selenite and it brings a clarity to your spiritual understanding of the universe and your place in it.
Selenite can be used to dispel negativity, both on an emotional and an etheric level. This makes it a good stone for protection. This energy combined with its angel associations makes it outstanding for angelic protection. You need only hold the selenite and pray or ask with intent for angels to protect you.
Selenite is a stone of love, which on the surface may seem odd. Its properties of mental flexibility and honesty, help maintain a loving relationship comfortably and with ease. It also brings harmony and inner peace which allow for recognizing love and acting in a loving manner.
Selenite is used in crystal healing for removing blocks to healing, dissolving secondary gain issues, confusion, particularly from alzheimer's disease or dementia, aligning the spine, decreasing epilepsy and seizures. It also promotes flexibility, assists with absorption of calcium and other minerals and vitamins. Selenite is used to promote fertility, increase the libido, and is a protector of pregnancy and motherhood. * Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information.
Selenite is primarily associated with the Crown and Third Eye chakras. It is also related to the sacral chakra.

I love my Selenite tower and I'm going to get another smaller sized one very soon. I read somewhere on the internet that it's good to meditate with a Selenite tower in each hand. I also find if your eyes feel tired, place the flat end of your Selenite tower over your eyelid for a few seconds, it feels great!

Selenite is a pretty powerful crystal and doesn't hold on to negative energy, but if you feel you would like to clean it, don't clean your Selenite with water, this will cause it to erode and weakens the structure of your crystal...I usually just dust mine with a cloth.
If you would like to charge it, then I would do it in the moonlight 😉🌙 ...But I bet you already new that😜

Doreen Virtue's About-Face

Doreen Virtue- motivational speaker, founder of Angel Therapy, writer of over 50 books including oracle decks, decks on the subject of angels, and other spiritual topics, has done an about-face. Doreen says she is going to change what she does to be more Christian and more about Jesus. No more prophecy or making predictions....Doreen said she will be changing some of her previously published books and card decks. She mentioned the Archangels and Ascended Masters book and the card deck that goes with it, Ascended Masters Oracle Cards. She will be taking out some of the deities she wrote about and created cards for. The book and card deck will then be re-issued. So who gets cut?   Doreen said she will still be promoting angels, and has a new Jesus app for your phone.
If she is denouncing everything she taught and believed in before, does that make her certified courses people have taken, now null and void? Interesting stuff, and will have to wait and see how this pans out....

Emotional Vampires and Sage and Smudging





Tomorrow calls for a nice walk by the ocean or down some nature trail because, help! I bumped into an emotional vampire :( I have to counter balance the vibe for sure. This person used to just pop over to my home unannounced, and for three days after the visit my home would still have this awful, yukky feeling lingering around. I was on edge just dreading a knock on the door, but then it stopped and no more visits...phew.  This person intends to start popping by again, and I'm surprised they don't get it.  I have dropped some pretty strong hints, and I don't want to be super outspoken to them, as that might hurt.  I think I have only ever met one other person that I have caught this kinda vibe from...its rather creepy. This is a woman, not a man. 
Maybe I will need to do a Smudge😟

Sage and Smudge

What is Smudging?

The modern-day practice of burning sage (or sage combined with other dried herbs) in personal smudging rituals and ceremonies is based on a combination of the spiritual, medicinal, herbal and cultural teachings of the past. Smudge Wand
Essentially, a smudge ritual or a smudge ceremony is performed to correct the energy in a home, in an office, in an object, or even in a person. This is accomplished by burning sage or sage and a combination of herbs, in a focused, intentional way to cleanse out negative energy and to replenish positive, healing energy.
 
I don't have any sage right now, but i can get some at my local spiritual/healing shop. I do have a sage candle and wonder if that might help??? We don't want the smoke detector to start screeching👾

CRYSTAL GRIDS




CRYSTAL GRIDS-and what they do: http://www.sacredserpent.net/crystal-grids.html



  • TOOLS FOR YOUR CRYSTAL GRID
  • A location for your grid in your home
  • Speak your intention or goal aloud, visualize it in your mind (you could even write it out and stick under your center crystal).
  • A center crystal. 
  • Some nice crystals that align with your intention (can look those up see what corresponds, and i have a link on side bar for that)
  • A quartz point for activation

            Crystal Grid Layout Process:

  1. The first step to making a crystal grid layout is deciding on what goal or intention you are looking to manifest.  When choosing your intention, be as specific as you can, as this will determine which healing stones you choose as part of your grid. ie: rose quartz for love and peace, tiger eye for better understanding of a situation etc. Above is a simple love grid.  You can make them bigger!
  2. Next, activate the crystal grid layout. Take a quartz crystal point, draw an invisible line between each stone to energetically connect each to the next. Your crystal grid is activated and finished. I keep mine up about a month.
  3. Now I'm going to show you  something elaborate  i saw somewhere on the internet... I think this is more an alter though....I'm impressed !
  4. Now I'm off to Chill with Charlie (the cat) ;) He thinks he's one of the gang....
~Bye for now~

STILL SEARCHING FOR THAT BIG BOOK of TAROT ART and HISTORY

Still searching for that special book with big colorful tarot card art and history, when I came upon this apparently rare book.
It may not be what I'm looking for, so I will see if my library can get it first (save money that way ;) I don't think much of the front cover, but maybe the inside makes up for it.
Blurb written by seller:  Truly beautiful pages with a great many black-and-white illustrations. 'At some point Moakley became interested in the study of Tarot. Her article, The Waite-Smith Tarot, appeared in the Bulletin of the New York Public Library, (v.58, 1954). Among other insights, she argued for the influence of Arthur E. Waite's Tarot book and deck on T.S. Eliot's landmark poem The Waste Land. From 1955 through 1967 she corresponded with art historian Erwin Panofsky; this period brackets her article and book on the iconography of the Visconti-Sforza deck. The 17-page article, 'The Tarot Trumps and Petrarch's Trionfi: Some Suggestions on their Relationship', appeared in the Bulletin of the New York Public Library (v.60, 1956), and foreshadowed the 1966 book for which she is famous. In 1958 she wrote a brief introduction to the Arcanum Books edition of Waite's translation of The Tarot of the Bohemians, by Papus. Among other things, it expresses her interest in and understanding of the two sides of modern Tarot. Introducing the occult or "dark" side, she compares the duality of Tarot to "the Yin-Yang symbol, whose dark side has a little spot of brightness at its center." Today, of course, Moakley is best remembered for her 1966 book, The Tarot Cards Painted by Bonifacio Bembo for the Visconti-Sforza Family: An Historical and Iconographic Study. Here she presented the first (and what remains to this day the most respectable) iconographic study of a particular Tarot deck. Her research (by this time over a decade of it) encompassed the history of the Visconti-Sforza deck itself, the family for which it was made, their heraldry and relationships, the artist who was responsible for its creation, and the symbolism of the allegorical figures. She provided sober identifications for 'enigmas' like the Hanged Man and 'mysteries' like the Popess, opening the door for subsequent rational treatment of Tarot iconography. Her findings in each of these areas remain foundational today, and her conclusions about the iconographic program of the trump cycle remain more reasonable than 99% of what has been written since'.
There is a book out there somewhere, but this is a start. I find some tarot cards are just so interesting and beautiful.                    

Below is a card from The Beautiful Creatures Tarot:

Here is another book, but no local libraries have it, or can get it. It's on Amazon ,but it's costly!

THE LOVE OF TAROT--BOOK?

Help...😸

I want to find a book, like a "big picture book" with "beautiful pictures",with some explanations, and history of tarot...Maybe with a title such as, "The Love of Tarot". I can see such a book in my minds eye, but I don't have a title for it. I have written to Watkins Books in London, UK for a recommendation so see what they come up with. I may have to grab my daughter and check out some old bookstores and go for lunch some day soon, and see if i can find such a book. Has anyone got any recommendations? You can write me at my blog or shop. *Meanwhile, I will leave you with some titles I have found so far... On line is great, but I love books.

*Watkins Books London , UK-http://www.watkinsbooks.com/  Watkins Books is an esoteric bookshop in the heart of London. Established over 100 years ago, they are one of the world's oldest and leading independent bookshops specializing in new and antiquarian titles in the Mind, Body, Spirit field. They import books from around the world including America and India, and their staff are all experts in the themes in the shop, and you can always ask them for recommendations and advice.


I also wanted to mention if your on Facebook, I started a small group for Tarot ("Tarot Chat") earlier in 2017. I have explanations for the cards, some I wrote and some I borrowed, but there is 'this and that' over there. This might get you there https://www.facebook.com/groups/1748192032165263/

Solfeggio Frequencies and Meditating-Awakening Intuition

 741 Hz - SOL - 'Awakening Intuition'
 852 Hz - LA - 'Returning to Spiritual Order'
(They often seem to get confused & switched around)

For quite a while I was meditating with Solfeggio Frequencies... "Vibration is everything", and every vibration has its own frequency. Exposing the mind and body to the Solfeggio frequencies, you can  achieve a greater sense of balance and deep healing. The Solfeggio frequencies align you with the rhythms and tones that form the basis of the Universe. Inspired by the harmonic patterns behind light, electromagnetism, and sound. This sound healing experience leads you through the  principle solfeggio tones – tones derived from a form of mysticism . These vibratory healing journeys will interest alternative healers, meditators and ambient music lovers.  The frequency that awakens Intuition is said to be 741 HZ...you need really good headphones to get the best benefits from this. There are many of these videos to try out on youtube: This is just a short short intro of one, so you know what I mean. This one is by: Source Vibrations

I will post a link on information side bar as well😊...Time to get into meditating again🐦

When and Where Did Tarot Get Started? The origins of tarot.

When and Where Did Tarot Get Started?

I think the earliest that's "recorded" for Tarot is "playing cards" around about the 1370's- 1400's in Milan, Italy.
It's thought the "Playing cards"  arrived from Mamluk, Egypt during the 1370s. Mamluk cards used suits of cups, coins, swords, and polo-sticks.

Polo was not known in Italy, so the Italians changed them into batons. Each region of Italy had its own variation. Spain had its own variation of the cards as well.
Tarot cards- were invented during the early 15th century in northern Italy as a permanent suit of trumps (trionfi, - 15th-century Italian playing cards with symbolic content related to those used in the tarocchi game. Below are some Italian men playing a "card game", and maybe the game is Tarocchini (I heard the game is very involved)....bravo!  Wonder if the pope plays, he seems a pretty cool guy 😉



Tarocchini-

Early stuff----

 more early stuff-
(picture from  Wikipedia)


Italy, France, Switzerland, Spain and most of central and northern Europe, seem to be where Tarot cards got their start, with thanks to "playing cards" from Egypt in the 1300's. There is thought that real tarot card reading may have started in ancient Egypt, but there is no documented evidence of this before the 18th century. 
*Divination using playing cards is recorded as early as 1540, apparently in The book Oracles of Francesco Marcolino da Forli (a very simple method of divination).  A manuscript from 1750 (Pratesi Cartomancer) documents rudimentary divinatory meanings for the cards of the tarot. In 1765,Casanova wrote in his diary that his Russian mistress frequently used a deck of cards for divination.

Is Tarot Evil? Or Of The Dev?  🙈🙉🙊
I by coincidence just read the best write up on this by Brigit Esselmont of Biddy Tarot, so I'm going to post Brigit's link here for your answers (its very very good)!

A Card Jumps Out....A Tarot Card Falls

A card jumps out-
1) So your shuffling your deck and your going to do a 3 card smaller reading...
Out falls a card as your shuffling, so where are you going to use it in your lay out?
Ive never used the one that falls out, due to not sure where I'd put it?
To clarify? or as a beginning first card?
What would you do?

2)Where would you put it in a larger reading?

So I asked a few tarot friends & this is what they said :

Often when a card jumps out at me, I place it down above where I'm going to lay out the spread. I usually consider it as a theme for the reading, a guide card or an overall message about what I'm seeking.

Other times, if a card jumps out at me while shuffling, if I'd been planning to do a particular spread, I sometimes scrap the spread and just lay out a few cards intuitively, including the one that jumped out. Sometimes it feels like a message- "You don't need a spread. The cards will tell you what you need to know. Just move freely, trust your instincts."

So for me it depends, but it's usually one of those two things that I end up doing. I almost always incorporate the jumper if one comes out at me.

For a longer spread, for me it depends on the layout. If I'm working with a spread that's kind of circle-shaped I have sometimes put a jumper in the center. Above the spread can also work for most layouts. If I'm doing a longer spread where I shuffle in between laying down each card (I don't usually work with spreads that way, but I do it for the multi-day spreads like the Sacred Days of Yule and Sacred Days of Midsummer spreads), and if a card jumps out while I'm in the process of pulling a card for a particular position, then I'll sometimes place two cards down sharing a single position and read them together.-anonymous
*********************************************************************************
This has very rarely happened for me. And, to be honest, if it lands face-down, I generally put it back in the deck somewhere random and just go on. If it were to fall face-up ... I'm not sure how I'd take it. I can't recall it happening yet. If it did, I'd probably use it as a theme card as well. A card that kind of sets the tone for the reading.-anonymous
 **********************************************************************************
 So in conclusion, I think I also like the idea of it being, "a card that kind of sets the tone for the reading." If anyone else has any great ideas about this, please let me know what you do with the, "one that jumps out". 😁

Christian Psychics

Christian Psychics- Touchy subject, but i read a book that was very interesting about how much the bible has actually been altered to the now a day bible. It gives a very different perspective on how psychics and fortune tellers were really viewed in the original bible. The book is called, "How to be a Christian Psychic" by Adrian Lee  -on Amazon, I think.   I say its good to be open minded !

Here is a cool short advert video on the book : http://calumeteditions.com/christian-psychic/

Cartomancy or fortune-telling by playing cards

  

Cartomancy- is fortune-telling or divination using a deck of  playing cards. I don't have a lot of experience with this type of card reading, but I admire people that do. One of the best card readers that i have ever encountered, just used playing cards. I found a great site today for Cartomancy, so i will leave it with you : https://cardseer.wordpress.com/

 

 


 

Aeclectic Tarot Forum closed :(

The Aeclectic Tarot Forum closed on July 14th, 2017. They were a "super tarot" site and very helpful to Tarot readers for one thing or another for seventeen years. The public threads remain online as a read-only archive and resource, so that is still there as a help.
This should take you there http://www.tarotforum.net/

Many tarot forums have popped up since Aeclectic Tarot has closed its doors, and one that's new and very promising is Tarot, Tea and Me ,and can be found here: https://www.littlefangtarot.com/forum/

There are many other helpful places that are not forums, such as:
Aunty Flo Tarot
Royal Roads Tarot
Biddy Tarot
etc. to name a few

Biddy Tarot has a forum I think, and lots of information and  tarot courses. I don't think you can access the forum unless you are a paid member.  There is information available about cards and combinations etc. that, you can access at Biddy Tarot for free though.




Good Old Intuition and The Clairs

INTUITION- is that “gut feeling” you have about something or someone that has nothing to do with logical thinking. It might seem like magic, but building intuition is actually about honing your ability to perceive the world around you. Meditating helps, going for walks, paying attention to the sensations of walking and breathing, and to the sights, smells, and sounds around you.
Through out your day, Pay attention to what your mind is drawn to. Is there a song you can’t get out of your head? Do you keep seeing certain words over and over again? These “coincidences” may very well be signals of what’s going on in your subconscious mind.
  • Taking time every day to clear your mind — for example, through meditation or mindful walking — will help you recognize these signals more clearly and, if necessary, act on them.
  • An example of this might be that you keep hearing songs and seeing people who remind you of one of your friends who you haven’t spoken to in a while. Upon consideration you might realize that you miss your friend, so you set up a time with them to reconnect. Maybe that friend is going through something, and your sensing that.
  • Research suggests that intuition is mostly about matching patterns based on experience and knowledge. For this reason, your intuition is more reliable in areas in which you have more experience. Travel, socialize, and learn new things. The more life experience you have, the better your intuition will be, as you’ll have more data to draw from.
  • Allow your gut and your mind to work together. Studies have shown that relying only on logic does not guarantee the best possible outcome. In fact, people often have more success starting with a hunch and then testing that hunch with logic. Research suggests that our initial response to a situation is often the correct one...
  • So IMO if your reading tarot cards and you get a vibe or feeling when looking at the cards your reading for someone, then don't ignore it, your likely correct. Its good to know some of the traditional meanings of the cards, but your intuition comes into play here as well....

THE CLAIRS- I think we all have some form of these. You might be stronger in Clairvoyance, and I'm suppose to be stronger in Clairsentience . I think sometimes if you go through a real hardship or loss in your life, it can wake these babies up too...You can develop them more with little exercises, which i will tell you about a book that shows you how....Here they are:
Clairvoyance means clear seeing.
This is when visions past, present and future flash through our mind's eye, or third eye, much like a daydream. Many of us are highly visual and able to understand an idea best when we see it written or sketched out as an image on a computer screen or on a canvas. Visual people often choose to be artists, builders, photographers, decorators, designers and so forth. If this sounds familiar, your clairvoyance is most likely a dominant sense. 
Clairaudience means clear hearing.
This is when we hear words, sounds or music in our own mind's voice. On rare occasions, spirit may be able to create audible sound, though this takes a tremendous amount of focused energy. Some of us best retain and comprehend information when we hear it spoken aloud. Our natural talents tend to lie in our auditory faculties, often making us gifted musicians, singers, writers and public speakers. If this feels right to you, clairaudience may be a leading sense for you.  
Clairsentience means clear feeling.
This entails feeling a person's or spirit's emotions or feeling another's physical pain. Many of us are clairsentient without consciously being aware of it. When we get a strong "gut" feeling, positive or negative, about someone we just met or when we get the "chills" for no apparent reason, we may be tuning into the emotional energy of a person or a spirit around us. When we are highly sensitive and are in tune with not only our own feelings, but also the feelings of others, this makes us natural healers and caregivers. We often feel inspired to pursue careers as doctors, therapists, counselors, nannies and teachers. If this is you, clairsentience is at the top of your senses list.  
Clairalience means clear smelling.
This is being able to smell odors that don't have any kind of physical source. Instances of this could include smelling the perfume or the cigarette smoke of a deceased relative, used as a sign of their presence around us. When our sense of smell is strong and distinct, we may find that certain smells connect us to past memories or we may be drawn to working as a florist, a wine taster or a perfume fragrance creator.  
Clairgustance means clear tasting.
This is the ability to taste something that isn't actually there. This experience oftentimes comes from out of the blue when a deceased loved one is attempting to communicate a memory or association we have with a particular food or beverage that reminds us of them. If we have a heightened sense of taste, this would make us natural chefs, bakers or food critics.  
Claircognizance means clear knowing.
This is when we have knowledge of people or events that we would not normally have knowledge about. Spirit impresses us with truths that simply pop into our minds from out of nowhere. An example of this would be a premonition: a forewarning of something that will happen in the future. Claircognizance requires tremendous faith because there's often no practical explanation for why we suddenly "know" something. Many philosophers, professors, doctors, scientists, religious and spiritual leaders and powerful sales and business leaders tend to be highly intuitive and seem to just know the facts with a sense of certainty. If this is you, consider claircognizance as one of your dominant senses.
-🌠 Ive experienced them at one time or another, but not really Clairaudience too much(probably I'm too chicken), or the smell and taste ones either..🌠

 
 
So there is a variety of  exercises you can do for the Clairs if you want to take things further with your tarot card readings...The book I recommend is called, "Where Two Worlds Meet" by Janet 🌠Nohavec (she was a Catholic Nun at one time)....This lady is a Medium and the book is a about Mediumship, BUT she has great pages on Tools of Development and Spirit Guides...I believe I got 🌠the book on Amazon. I'm not a medium....Ive had some strange things happen, but I'm not a medium. It is important to know that all mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums.🌠-

IF I DID IT--to read TAROT from afar

 #TAROT READING FROM AFAR

When I'm doing a reading from afar, I need to be able to focus on the person I'm reading for. To do that, I need something to focus in on to do with him/her. I like to go with the Name (first and last name only is necessary for me.)  Birth Date is not necessary (although many like to give it.) Also Country you Reside in is important.  Ask are you a Male/Female? Names don't always tell that!  I don't like photographs, and sometimes I feel it can almost be a hindrance to me. Those two or maybe three things are what I use to focus in on someone’s energy for readings. You can go with whatever focus you feel right with. (I don't like too much info from someone). If I have met the person before,  I can go with their name,  and I can picture what they look like, and I have been around his/her energy before. So, a focal point, you just need a focal point that gets you tapped into the  person’s energy.  Sometimes as I'm shuffling the deck, I will say the persons name aloud and where they are from( visualize here), and what they have asked ...You will find your own little niche for doing this...

As Im Learning to Navigate the Pages - For You a BUCK!

Its not Tarot, but wildlife is pretty magical .  Spotted this fella while we were out for a walk, and there is lots of meaning Spirit Animal wise, to him.
Message/Meaning:
Deer totem’s and their antlers bring the message and meaning of higher connection and awareness. Antlers act as spiritual antennae, and if an antlered deer or stag has entered your life pay attention to inner thoughts and perceptions. Take a moment to stop and listen to your inner voice it is likely that an important message is going to come to you.

The deer spirit and totem guides us to get more in tune with our feminine energies. If you’ve seen a deer person consider the medicine of gentleness, grace, and compassion. When deer spirits show up in your life it is time embrace the kindness.
Ask yourself important questions. Are you trying to force things? Are others? Are you being too critical and uncaring of yourself? When deer appear they are symbols of an opportunity to express gentle love that will open new doors to adventure for you. Use methods other than force to achieve goals, be led to adventure or spiritual knowledge. Accept others for who they are and don’t try to change them.
*If you’ve seen a Stag totem this power animal will guide you to strength and a renewal of your energies...
So just a little blurb there....They are such beautiful animals, and i did see  two baby bambis crossing the road the other day...Luv Nature 💖
