Weekly Card Reading 2-22-16

Published February 22, 2016 by mandyhieatt

Beginning of Week – King of Cups

He is wise and understanding. He knows the meaning of patience. Like the sea turtles that swim at his side, he guides the way with a stead calm through the ever-shifting uncertainties of the vast ocean depths. He reads the knowledge of the centuries that has been etched into the patterns of their shells, and drinks in that gift with every breath taken of the water that flows in and around them all. The waters grow still and peaceful in his presence. The cerulean swells sparkle with gem like clarity.

The sea horse is a symbol of the power of Poseidon and is imbued with the tireless strength of the sea. He is a patient creature, swimming through the swells at his own fluid pace. He follows the currents. However, his grace is armored by the spines of his exoskeleton, and that sinuous delicacy should not be underestimated, for the male sea horse is the protector of the young.

Like the sea horse, the King of Cups is a protector. He cares for and watches over all those who are near to him. He offers a drink from his healing waters. He offers compassion and care. His message is to let the currents flow through your veins to cleanse your heart of its burdens. He is patient and tolerant, and understands that all aspects and needs of the people around must be balanced.

Barbara Moore

The beginning of this week has you letting go of what is not working for you and learn to go with the flow of life. Which is perfect for the Full Moon in Virgo. Take time and look at your life. What isn’t working for you anymore? Why are you still holding on? What are you afraid of? Trust that by letting go you are allowing abundance and prosperity into your life and allowing all the positive things that have been waiting for you into your life. Yes, I know how scary that can be and how the unknown can be absolutely terrifying. However, I also know the joys that come with letting go of what isn’t working and going with the flow.

King of Cups

Middle of Week – Six of Cups

She wanders along the path until she comes to her destination. The creek burbles along its bed not far below her chosen spot, and she sets up her table and teacups to receive her visitors – first her friends from home, with their shiny button eyes and thread-sewn smiles.

And then the shyer ones begin to creep forth from teh shadows and hollows of teh woods, the sylphs and nymphs from the glassy water below, the dryads from teh birch and beech and oak, and the goblins from under. These are the companions she has been waiting for, and she greets them cheerfully. They are drawn forth by her innocent chatter and by the mind that has not yet been chained by boundaries of “what must be” and definitions of impossibility. In her world, fish are not bound by the water of the creek – they may swim through the air above that glassy path – and the sylvan company she entertains at her table are as welcome as the ones made of cloth and stuffing.

The Queen of the Faeries steps forth, and the fantastic retinue draws back, but the girl just smiles, pours a cup of tea, and offers it with a smile.

The Six of Cups is a reminder of childhood innocence, good intentions, noble impulses, simple joys and pleasures. It is not meant to be overly sentimental, but more an urging to remember the open-mindedness of a child’s perspective, and to push back the narrowness that folds in on you over time, with the complexities of life and responsibility.

Barbara Moore

So you’ve done the work at the beginning of the week of letting go of what was no longer useful to you. Now it’s time to look at the world with a child’s perspective of wonder and joy. Life can make anyone become hard and cold and that prohibits love and joy from coming into your life. Working just to pay bills is a horrible feeling and that is enough to bring anyone down, however remember that even though you have those bills you can still find joy and happiness all around you. Remember what it was like to use your imagination to go to far away worlds and explore new and exciting things. As an adult you now have a stronger mind and can make those childhood adventures more exciting. Remember the Law of Attraction teaches that the most important tool is being able to imagine the life you want and to feel it. Isn’t that what you did as a child? It’s time to start doing that again!

End of Week – Four of Pentacles

The dragon coils tightly around his hard-earned hoard. He has spent many human lifetimes gathering up such a vast treasure. No one shall touch it; no one shall steal it from him! “Mine!” he hisses up to his tiny cousins who come creeping up to see. The salamanders and lizards scurry away quickly, lest he lash out at them in his possessive anger.

“My gold!” he declares. He knows the chameleons are watching with lustful eyes from above. HE knows they are waiting for a moment of weakness to slip in and take. Even the light touch of wind feels like a thief stealthily attempting to creep up on him, and so he curls himself around himself, around and around and coiled tightly, tail to snout and endless coil. The salamanders scuttle off and leave him to himself. Burnished scales meld and become indistinguishable from the gold that he lies sprawled upon. Lovely, comfortable gleam, never tarnishing, never changing.

The Four of Pentacles embodies a possessive spirit, one how wants always to be in control. As a result, he lives within limitations, a cage of his own making, and is highly averse to any change. He is obstructive, in denial of his own weaknesses, chained by those very weaknesses. He is a miserly and miserable being who is financially well off but with a spirit that has been locked down by that preoccupation with his material state. Letting go of that selfishness might bring more happiness than that hoard has done thus far.

Barbara Moore

Let’s talk about what is happening here. You let go of what wasn’t working and you started to view life through a child’s perspective but now you are being selfish and greedy. What happened to make you change this quick? I can almost bet that it has something to do with money and finances. As I stated earlier, paying bills sucks and when there is more month and than money it really sucks. I have been there and still fighting my way out. This does not mean, however, to become a greedy, stingy, and miserly person. Yes, be responsible and pay your bills but do it with love in your heart. It is easy to pay bills with love in your heart. Remember what those bills signify in your life. A house to live in, electricity for the lights and heat, water to drink and bathe in, internet for entertainment, and so many other things that you pay for and enjoy. Don’t stop the enjoyment because now you have to pay for it. Use the Law of Attraction to help you through the hard times. Learn to attract financial stability and freedom by imagining it and feeling those feelings. Don’t let money stop you from living the life you want. Bad feelings towards money will only bring about a lack of it.

Reiki and Card Readings

Published February 18, 2016 by mandyhieatt

Most of you that follow my blog do so for my daily readings, which I have taken a short break from. I do plan on getting back to those this Sunday evening however. I try to provide not only the meaning the author of the deck provided but also my interpretation of the card and it effects on the day. I know that at times my entries tend to be long and wordy, even willing to admit that at times they may be hard to read. But I feel that it is always worth the read in the end.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret on how I do my readings. I use Reiki on myself and the cards before I do a reading. Since I started doing this I have found that not only am I far more accurate but that my energy isn’t depleted after I do a reading. Anyone who has ever done readings knows the feeling of being completely drained after a reading or a series of readings. There are some people who want readings that just want to deplete your energy to start with.  Then there are those times when as a reader we think we are Superman and decide that we can do marathon readings with no break and end up feeling nearly dead.

I figured out that lesson out a few years ago. I was doing a fund raising psychic fair to help a group obtain the money needed to become a 501(c)3 organization (non-profit). This was a 2 day event and I offered to help both days. First of all it was a 90 minute drive one way from the event to my house, so I needed to make sure that I had enough energy for that. Then it started later in the morning but went until 8:00 pm. So after the first day I felt tired but that was to be expected. However, after the end of the second day I was so exhausted that I slept for 14 hours straight that night and then had to rest/sleep most of the next week. I knew that I was pushing myself too hard and putting out too much of my own energy. After that event I decided I needed to change how I approach doing readings.

Tarot 1

It was during a meditation state that the solution to my problem was presented. During my meditation the goddess Morrigan showed me that I was to Reiki myself and my cards before I started reading to ensure that it was not my energy that was being used but universal energy that was being used. Because universal energy cannot be depleted so there is enough to do what needs to be done and then some. So the next day I started doing Reiki to my cards and noticed that not only did my energy not drop as much but also that I was gaining more insight into what really needed to be said.

A few months later I was invited to do another fund raising psychic fair and I took the offer. A lot of the people from the first fair remembered me and wanted me to read them again so I ended up being booked for that fair. At the end of the two day fair I was not tired because of the use of Reiki on myself and my cards. There was no need to sleep for 14 hours or spend the next week in the middle of a fibromyalgia flare.  I had plenty of energy and was able to help many people and raise a lot of money for the organization I was helping.

So when I start back up doing my daily, weekly, and monthly readings please know that a lot of the insight comes from Reiki energy. And if you decided to book a personal reading with me that I am not feeding you what I think you want to know but what Reiki energy is telling me you need to know through the cards.

Oracle of the Dragonfae

Queen Oonagh

There is a practical approach to a seemingly unsolvable problem; if you take this tack, it will have fantastic results. Look at how you can follow the letter of the law, so to speak, and yet be innovative and clever in your approach. Put your own needs first and do not be a victim in this situation. There is a way out, and it involves using your wits and wiles, and being aware that it is right and fair for you to do so when you have so much at stake! Using the gifts of the Earth and of Gaia, of air and water, for practical ends with magickal results. Affinity with rowan-wood.

Today is about using the proper communication skills to change a undesirable situation. And truth be told, most likely it was the lack of communication that caused the issue in the first place. I know that when I don’t keep my communication skills in check me and my husband will be saying the exact same thing but will be fighting because we are not communicating. Everything in life rests your ability to properly communicate.

The book “Crucial Conversations: How to Talk When Stakes are High” by Grenny, Patterson, and McMillan explains that when communications break down people will go “silent or violent,” meaning that they will either clam up and stop speaking or they will start with the yelling. Think about when you are in an argument, I bet you do one of these things. When the break down of communication has reached this point it is important to make the other person feel safe in the conversation and this can be done quickly by accepting guilt and apologizing. It doesn’t matter if you’re right or wrong, this simple act will help bring the other person back to the point of being able to communicate. For more detailed description of how to create safety please get this book. It did save my marriage.

If you are not good at communicating then do some personal development and develop that skill. Because this is a skill that you will use the rest of your life. Stop and think about how better communication can solve the problems you are facing right now. If all parties involved could sit down and have a rational discussion without anyone getting upset to the point of “silence or violence” then things could be solved, and that is up to you to accomplish.

Today improve your communication skills to solve your problems.

Oracle of the Dragonfae

The Lady Grain

A time when dreams and wishes are quickly and easily realized. Fertility is accentuated, and your attractiveness and personal beauty are appreciated and commented on. Throw wide open your heart and experience the joy of feeling. Beautiful emotions, warm friendships, loving relationships. Displays of love – extravagant love. New projects and ideas. Self-love grows, and attracts others to you when Grain is with you.

Lucy Cavendish

What a wonderful day for opening your heart to the beauty around you and within you. It is when you are able to find the beauty in all things that all things seem to become better. And who doesn’t want things to become better? Also, when you notice the beauty in all things around you others will notice your beauty which, lets be honest here, will make you feel good about yourself. When you are complimented accept it with gratitude and don’t be one of those assholes that is down on yourself.

Today is also a good day to start a new project that you have been thinking about starting. Grian is here to help you with the initial start so that you can keep the momentum going and making the new project the best it could possibly be. She does warn that you have to have the right mindset to ensure success because she is just here to get you started not to keep you going. And this is where the Law of Attraction comes into play. Use the Law of Attraction to keep your momentum going by believing that you have already accomplished your goals. Feel now what it would feel like to have your goals accomplished. Enjoy those feelings because that is what the universe goes off of… your feelings.

Today enjoy the beauty around you and start the new project with love and joy in your heart.

Oracle of the Dragonfae
by Lucy Cavendish

Lady Titania

Bringing people together in life-changing, sacred and meaningful gatherings; mothering others joyously; being greater than you appear to be; understanding the need for joy and happiness and gatherings that delight in the company of soul mates; family agreements and pacts that are reinforced through celebration; coming together in community with friends. Finding your soul family. Being protected and nurtured by friends and soul-family.

Lucy Cavendish

Today is all about finding joy all around you, especially in family. And there is a reminder here that family has very little to do with blood and have everything to do with love. Sometimes the best family is the one you make for yourself. Close friends end up being better family than a cousin or even a sibling. Accepting this fact of life and finding joy in it is liberating and soul lifting.

The easiest way to find joy is to go out a make it. Go out with your family and friends and have some fun. Create joy all around you and the world will seem like a much better place. You make the world a better place when you create joy because you are sending out good vibes to the universe which means that the universe has to send you back more vibes as the Law of Attraction teaches. It really is amazing how quickly things will improve when you make the choice to create joy and be happy. Remember that no one else can make you happy except for you.

Today go out and create your own happiness with those you consider family.

The Lovers

You relationship needs tending, as do all things that live. It could be time to make a romantic gesture, to love another as you would wish to be loved, to understand that love cannot flourish when there is mistrust and anxiety. You may be despairing that your relationship may never match your dreams – please know that your true love lies within your own willingness to believe that you too can experience passionate love, and that you are well-worthy of its ecstasies, no matter your beliefs about your age, your health, your beauty. You are a beloved one. The Dragonfae know this. Now they ask you to know this too.

Lucy Cavendish

Do you truly love yourself? I mean love yourself to the point that you understand that you have flaws that can be improved upon but do not negative self-talk. Most of us do not love ourselves to that level and a lot of that has to do with the way our society tells us we should feel about ourselves. Society would have you believe that you are not as worthy of love because you don’t look perfect, you don’t have a certain amount of money, you can’t travel the world, the list goes on. Well society is wrong and it is up to people like you to change society.

It is time to start loving yourself for who you really are and not what society wants you to be or who your family things you should be. You don’t have to fit in to be loved. You don’t have to act this way or that way to find acceptance. Because in the end that only person that needs to accept you is you. Your family and society don’t know what it feels like to be you or what you are feeling, they only know what they are feeling and want the rest of the world to conform. And if you ask me conformity is not the way to go.

Today start loving yourself for who you really are and if you’re not sure who that is go find yourself. Go realize what a wonderful, interesting, and exciting person you are. Go realize all the talents you have to offer the world. Go out and be awesome!

2-1-16 Weekly Card Reading

Published February 1, 2016 by mandyhieatt

Oracle of the Dragonfae
by Lucy Cavendish

Beginning of week – Melusine

You may be facing rejection from others, particularly due to traditional family, religious, or cultural expectations. Being thought of as unacceptable is some way. Struggling to fit into an environment that only loves part of who you are. Finding people who want you to hide some of who you are, so that you fit in.

Lucy Cavendish

The beginning of this week has you feeling like you need to hide part of who you are to make others happy. Let me ask you this… How does that make you feel and what do those feelings do to you? When we feel like we have to hide part of who we are it builds up resentment that can lead into major arguments. Although the person or persons asking this of you has your best interest in mind they do not fully understand the emotional consequences of what they ask. Tell them kindly that although you appreciate that they care that much for you that they want the world to love you, you have to be who you are no matter what because you have to be happy.

1 Melusine

by Lucy Cavendish

 

Middle of week – The Lady Alfreda

It is time to get real and own what you have previously blamed on others. This does not mean blaming yourself. Instead, work on shifting your own karmic residue (Dragonfae are wonderful at this!) and understanding the connections between what you have sent out and what you have created. Issues of law, justice, and karma. Fearful thoughts around what you see to be the darkness or black magick, not understanding just how the natural Law works, thus this card asks you to look to your own intent. Clear your space; work with your own dark times to understand the lessons. Make friends with your shadow and thank it for the lessons.

Lucy Cavendish

This is the perfect card for the Law of Attraction. So what you have previously sent out is coming back to you and it sucks! You have to deal with this in a positive way in order to change it next time it comes back. When things that seem back occur it is up to you to change your mindset and make them as positive as possible while understanding that there are lessons to be learned from this experience. This is also the time to start examining your shadow self and making peace with it.

13 The Lady Alfreda

by Lucy Cavendish

 

End of week – Queen Mab

Getting back to the basics of enchantment and magick, reconnecting with the old ways, and seeing them as eternal. Understanding the karmic history of your area, and applying the principles and lessons in the present moment. Telepathically receiving messages, and trusting in them. Knowing that your thoughts have energy and can have an immense impact on what happens (think of the threefold law…). Indulge in some old-fashioned magick, believe in your own abilities, and trust in the ancient ways of wisdom that run in your blood, as well as in the planet’s heartbeat.

Lucy Cavendish

So you have made those around you understand that you can’t hide the parts of you that may make others uncomfortable and dealt with karmic issues and your dark side and now it is time to reconnect with your soul. The part of you that is eternal and ever evolving into a better being. This can be done through meditation, prayer, nature walks, and other things that make you live in the moment. When you take time to reconnect with yourself you gain confidence in your abilities, all of them, and have no fears of the unknown. This is important in your life and should be done daily; however if you have gotten off track now is the time to get back on track.
