TAROT/ORACLE CARD READINGS

Scorpio New Moon Card Spread & Ritual

Happy New Moon in Scorpio! I love setting intentions on New Moons and sometimes it is nice to tap into the energy of the current sign.

Scorpio is a Water sign that is often associated with intensity, magnetism, mysterious, shadow-side, loyalty, sexiness, possessiveness, power, bravery.

I created a card spread to help you bring the positive aspects of this sign into your life.

If tarot or oracle cards are not your thing, then this is more of an intuitive journal challenge.

Here’s how this works:

Supplies: card deck (optional), journal, pen or pencil

  1. Find a quiet place where you can dedicate a little bit of time to this activity and yourself.
  2. Light a candle or incense, burn some sage or turn on an essential oil diffuser.
  3. Set the intention that this time is for introspection that will help you move forward towards your desires.
  4. Ask for guidance from God/Universe/Spirit, Mother Earth, guides, angels, etc.
  5. Take 5 deep breaths. You can follow this with some Lunar Breathing if desired.
  6. Ask the following questions. If using cards, shuffle and either pick the card you are drawn to, the one on top or bottom, or the one that falls out. No cards? Then listen to your intuition and write down what pops in your head.

1. What has been going on under the surface for me lately?

2. Does something need to bubble up?

3. Where does it feel appropriate to have a bit of mystery right now?

4. How can I embrace my darker side during this lunar cycle?


Reflect on what has come up.

Set an intention related to question 4 during this next moon cycle.

New Moon in Libra Card Spread & Ritual

Happy New Moon in Libra! I love setting intentions on New Moons and sometimes it is nice to tap into the energy of the current sign.

Libra is an Air sign that is often associated with balance, harmony, partnership, commitment, fairness, relationships, cooperation.

I created a card spread to help you bring the positive aspects of this sign into your life.

Not all of you do tarot and oracle cards so for you, this is more of an intuitive journal challenge.

Here’s how this works:

Supplies: card deck (optional), journal, pen or pencil

  1. Find a quiet place where you can dedicate a little bit of time to this activity and yourself.
  2. Light a candle or incense, burn some sage or turn on an essential oil diffuser.
  3. Set the intention that this time is for introspection that will help you move forward towards your desires.
  4. Ask for guidance from God/Universe/Spirit, Mother Earth, guides, angels, etc.
  5. Take 5 deep breaths. You can follow this with some Lunar Breathing if desired.
  6. Ask the following questions. If using cards, shuffle and either pick the card you are drawn to, the one on top or bottom, or the one that falls out. No cards? Then listen to your intuition and write down what pops in your head.

1. What area of my life needs more balance and harmony? 

2. How can I bring more Libra energy to this area?

3. What is hidden that has kept this area out of whack?


Reflect on what has come up.

Set an intention to act on the answer to question 2 during this next moon cycle.

Pick Your Autumn Animal Guide!

Monday, September 23rd is the Autumn Equinox and I thought you might like to pick your animal guide to be by your side for the rest of this season.

The cards are from my printable oracle card deck that will be a part of the upcoming release my new Free Spirit Guidebook.

  • Look at the image below. Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
  • Open your eyes. Choose the card you feel drawn to the most.
  • Scroll down for the cards and messages.
  • OR you can read the messages below and pick an animal that you think will be the best fit for your fall season.

Have fun with this! Notice when you see your animal represented during this season. You might see it on pillows, in commercials, or even live!

Use the hashtag #autumnanimalguide to join in the fun!

Each morning, ask your animal to guide you through your day and to help you tap into the qualities associated with this animal that will best serve you.

ON THE AUTUMN EQUINOX, ENVISION YOURSELF HANGING OUT WITH YOUR ANIMAL GUIDE. MAKE A CONNECTION AND ASK FOR GUIDANCE DURING THE AUTUMN SEASON.

Messages revealed – clockwise from top!


Owl – This fall season will bring situations that will require your keen eye and sense of intuition. If you do not feel like these are well developed, then consider beginning a practice to increase your connection to your intuition. Call on Owl for wisdom and guidance to help you see what is hidden to most others.

Buffalo – It is important for you to connect with the gratitude theme of this season. The Buffalo is here to tell you that you everything you need. Maybe you are trying to get to another level. Saying that you for what you have, looking around and using what is at hand will both help you get there. When you find yourself complaining, ask Buffalo to guide you back to gratitude and prayer.

Cat – Ah, you are being invited to enjoy both a sense of play and aloofness this season. Really explore doing things that increase your self-confidence. When you do this, it will be easier to act when the time is right. Call in Cat this season when you need luck and a bit of curiosity.

Wolf – Looks like the autumn season will be a social one for you. In certain situations, you will thrive if you learn to protect yourself from sharing too much and picking up everyone else’s negativity. In other situations, you might be called to be the guardian of others. If this seems daunting, be sure to engage in activities that will help you trust your instincts more. Call on Wolf to be by your side and definitely consider howling at the moon a few times this season.

Squirrel – Use the fall season to be working towards future goals. When you have the energy to work on your goals, seize the opportunity and get a lot done. Create a list of the things you need to do to reach your goal/s. Persevere and work hard on checking things off your list this autumn. Call on Squirrel to remind yourself to be a bit selfish when it comes to creating a future you love.

Fox – Life might come at you with sticky situations this fall season. Tap into this Fox energy and remind yourself that you have faced obstacles before and come out on top and you can do it again. Step up your exercise routine so you can feel physically and mentally prepared to master this season with the prowess of the Fox. Any time you feel stuck or scared, ask the Fox for guidance and then see what clues show up to help you more forward.

Crow – Take time this season to delve a bit deeper into an area of study that involves mysticism, magic or shadow work. When you learn the ways of the universe and gain a deeper sense of your self, you can approach your life with the cleverness of the Crow. As these studies create change in your life, imagine the Crow on your shoulder or nearby guiding you on your path to your highest good.

Spider – The spider always asks, “Are you caught in a web or weaving your own destiny?” You might like to start this season by journaling your answer to that question. If you are already weaving, then envision how your destiny looks and keep creating your web. If not, what is going on? How can you untangle yourself and begin to create your own beautiful life? Either way, call on Spider for patience as you work on yourself this season.

Pick a Card – an in-depth reading

I want to take our card readings a little deeper this week.

I have included a tarot card paired with an oracle card from my upcoming printable deck and a crystal.

  • Look at the image above. Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
  • Open your eyes. Choose the card you feel drawn to the most. 
  • Scroll down for the cards and messages. 
  • OR you can look at the main card below and pick the situation that resonates with you the most at the moment.

Enjoy your reading!

Messages revealed – left to right!
8 of Arrows – 3rd Chakra – Citrine –

  • Commit to a way with confidence.
  • You have all you need and now it is time to put it out in the world. The best way to do this is to find a way that works for you and stick to it. In the past, you might have thought that doing that would restrict you or that you lacked the confidence or willpower to stay the course. Committing to a path can actually create more freedom than you have ever imagined. Start small and do things daily. That alone will give you confidence.
  • Consider imagining yellow light at your third chakra right above your navel. Place your hands there and breathe into this area daily.
  • Citrine enhances optimism and energy. Either carry one around with you or imagine a citrine stone in your solar plexus.

8 of Bowls – Working with your Breath – Clear Quartz Crystal –

  • Turn towards the divine.
  • Your old ways are not working for you anymore. It is time to turn your back on them and open up to or deepen your connection to the divine.
  • Working with your breath is a quick way to do this. You can simply do deep belly breathing or consider starting your day with right nostril breathing and ending your day with left nostril breathing (simply close the opposite nostril and breathe for at least one minute). This simple act of slowing down and tuning into your breath will open you up to a higher level of living and connection to the divine.
  • Clear Quartz Crystal enhances clarity and spiritual connection. Carry one around with you or imagine it at your third eye center when you are doing your breathing exercises.

3 of Pipes – Hawk – Amethyst – 

  • Dream. Envision. Wander.
  • It is time for you to energize your talent. Think of the future and let go of the past. Do go blindly forward though. Take time to dream and envision. Then look for signs.
  • Ask Hawk to be your guide and send him/her out ahead to find you opportunities. Then listen to your gut, your heart, your intuition when things come your way so you can discern whether or not they are right for you. The universe is leading you.
  • Amethyst enhances imagination and awareness. Put it under your pillow or imagine it at the crown of your head while meditating.
