📆 Transitioning from May to June

Month End Check-In Tarot Reading with the The Lost Tarot and Coastal Curiosities Oracle

Here and Now I Exist – Who you are now, in your entirety.

The High Priestess Rx atop The Empress, Reward – Your intuition and self care are not on the same page. There is reward in acknowledging this and realizing that they do not need to be on opposing sides but can work together in coexistence for something healthier.

The Slough – What is to be left in the past as you move forward.

The Star atop Death Rx, Roam – Don’t let lack of Hope create stagnancy in your life. Depression is keeping you from moving forward, even at a slow pace.

What Lies Ahead – An ideal state or ideal self you are seeking at this time.

King of Wands and Unearth – You are seeking to reconnect with your passions, motivation, and enthusiasm. It has been buried beneath the depression for a long time.

Limitations – Negative influences, opposition, or ill will.

The Fool atop Two of Swords, Establish – You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Decisions have to be made, no matter how much you don’t want to. Be an Adult.

The Boon – Positive influences, higher guidance, or divine intervention.

Queen of Coins atop Six of Swords, Awaken – Wake up to the fact you just can’t hide from everything all the time. This depression this time around made a runner out of you. Connect to the nurturing, grounding influence of nature to bring you back to self.

The Wound – An unpleasant past experience or event that is ripe for some support and healing.

Five of Wands and Shell – Remember that not everyone you open up to is going to show true colors to be in conflict with your own values. Disagreements happen, but they don’t have to turn into distance and isolation.

Nostalgia – A positive past experience or event to acknowledge, reflect upon, and enjoy.

Five of Cups atop Two of Cups Rx, Robust atop Observe – Your friends and loved ones are there to help and support you. Even when you can’t see them clearly, they are standing in the wings watching and waiting to step in and help.

A Warning – Something coming that can be prevented or overcome.

King of Swords and Terrarium – Don’t allow yourself to become so judgmental or harsh tongued that you close yourself off to the rest of the world.

Empowerment – A future opportunity to work toward.

Ten of Swords and Crystal – Use your connection to the earth and nature to heal your wounds and draw you out of the last dregs of your depression. You are at the end, and that connection will give you the boost you need.

🌑 New Moon in Gemini – May 2022

Today is the new moon, and like all new moons and full moons, I did a spread aligned to the moon’s current themes as a part of my recognition of the moon’s cycle and influences upon us. Today’s spread is about the medicine within, and brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot by the Moon series.

New Moon in Gemini Tarot Reading with The Zenned Out Journey Tarot

Where do I need to communicate clearly?

Page of Pentacles – Concerning those things that you want to accomplish, and the fact that you are learning as you go and don’t know everything.

Sometimes manifesting your dreams takes a bit of faith while you learn as you go, especially when that journey is slow going. You can still manifest what you seek, just make sure people know that you’re taking your time getting there. They’re used to seeing you rush.

What truth needs to be shared?

Five of Swords atop Nine of Wands Rx – That you’re still fighting with the depression. You’ve come so far in climbing out of the pit, and yet the fact that you are still lingering in a sense of dissatisfaction is a sign that you’re not all the way out yet. Don’t keep this to yourself, because those who care about you need to know.

What drama do I need to step away from?

The Fool – Sometimes you just have to let people make their own mistakes. Not everyone can learn from others… some people just need to learn their lessons for themselves.

Where do I need to focus instead?

Ace of Wands –  Focus instead on your own passions and inspiration. There’s plenty to keep you focused elsewhere if you open up and let your curiosity lead the way.

How can I put my inspiration into action?

Ten of Cups – Seek out the things that you know make you happy. You need to help your sense of emotional satiation find its roots.

New Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.

Queen of Cups – Sometimes your journey of emotional growth isn’t about pursuit, but rather about standing still and allowing the emotions to have the space to flow freely.


❤️ Self Care Saturday (On a Sunday)

These Saturday readings are (not usually) bearing in on any one thing or event in my life, as the question used is asking for a more general outlook. This is a self care exercise, and is not meant as a predictive reading… although that, too, happens on occasion.

The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?

BlueDogRose Tarot, Cosmic Cat Wisdom Oracle, Butterfly Circus Lenormand

EarthFour of Wands and Courage – Yes, the housing levy is coming. Yes, there’s a lot to be worried about. Don’t allow that to pull you down and hiding and keep you from getting things done and taking pleasure in your home.

AirThe Hermit and Grace – Let others come with you when you go out into alone time, as it will help uplift your emotions in a way that doing it on your own can’t. Yes it defeats the purpose of “alone time”, but at the same time it will give you a lift in your emotions that you need right now.

WaterMoon atop Knight of Swords, Frisky – There’s a lot of uncertainty going on right now in your life, but it’s okay. You can get past it with flying colors if you stay upbeat and determined as you move forward. Work at seeing your determined pursuit through uncertainty as a game rather than a trial.

FireWorld and Improvisation – Remember that not everything in life has to be planned out. Sometimes the best things happen on the fly.

WaningBear and Lily – Don’t get defensive when things become uncertain.

WaxingShip and Moon – Daydreaming about pleasure trips and good times is absolutely healthy and okay this week.

Take Away – Don’t go out alone right now.  The risk is more than just the stalker issue currently going on, but also has to do with your own emotional health.  You need others along. There’s a lot of uncertainty coming up over the week (and the next few months, for that matter).  Remember that optimism and friendships can combine to help lift you up.  Don’t sink into negativity or let it influence how you react.


Simple Three-Card Spreads Tarot Reading

Simple Three Card Spreads with the The Pastel Kitty Tarot, Kittycorn Tarot, Animated Movies Tarot, Alice In Luna's Tarot, Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot, The Returning Of Panthera Tarot, Fairy Land Tarot, and Japanese Anime Tarot

MindAce of Pentacles – You see opportunities in everything and your mind is constantly looking for new ways to manifest your dreams into reality.

BodySeven of Swords – You feel as if your body is betraying you. Each year more slips away in the areas of mobility, strength, and flexibility. Yet you have no one to blame for this but yourself, as you often choose to leave behind the good stuff for the unhealthy.

Spirit Knight of Swords – Always willing to explore and expand, you charge forward often without heed to the danger.


Past The Hanged Man – Continue as you always have at seeking to see others perspectives…

Present Six of Pentacles – … and give people the benefit of the doubt whenever possible…

Future Six of Wands – …and success will follow you wherever you go.


The Situation Two of Pentacles – Difficulty juggling projects and responsibilities with self-care.

The Obstacle The Star – Not enough hope and positivity, and not enough connection to the outside world either.

The Lesson Ace of Cups – Your emotions are a powerful force to be reckoned with. Fresh emotions equal fresh energy, and in order to foster fresh emotions, hope and optimism is necessary.


Embrace Knight of Wands – Your creative passions can once again be a great source of motivation and enjoyment for you if you are willing to stop shying away from them and embrace them instead.

Accept Queen of Swords – You’re never going to get the kind of love and support you long for from from the corner you wish to get it from. It’s not in her nature.

Let Go Ace of Wands – An echo back to the “Embrace” prompt, this card encourages you to “let go and go with the flow” concerning those things that inspire enthusiasm and spark your creative nature.


Dream The High Priestess – Sometimes our dreams are not what they appear. Make sure you are looking at your dreams and aspirations closely to see what they are rooted in and where they come from.

Life Knight of Pentacles – Life doesn’t always have to be a high pressure rush. Take your time and enjoy it.

Fear The Magician – You fear helplessness and loss of autonomy. These themes are triggers for you when they show up in your life.


Tomorrow Eight of Cups – Feeling fed up with the world is understandable now and then. Instead of being irked into stepping off, take a breath and give yourself a little extra space.

Next Week Queen of Pentacles – Get your ducks in a row as there’s rocky roads soon to come. Make sure you are making choices that shore up your stability and will give you a fighting chance to confront these challenges head on.

Next Month Ten of Swords – Lots of stress and painful endings coming to the forefront next month. Keep in mind that although this is a period of endings, but it’s not the end of the world.


Desire Nine of Swords Rx – No more depression and anxiety.

Obstacle Six of Cups – The past. The damage is done. 50% of people that have a MDE are prone to having another in their lifetime. Once you have had two, that statistic jumps to 80% that subsequent episodes will occur. At this time in your life you have had upwards of fifteen or more. This is far more than the statistical 5-9 in a lifetime estimated by the multiple Kessler studies on the subject.

Solution Four of Cups – Meditation, self care, and sticking true to what’s right for you.


Red Light (Stop) Seven of Wands – Stop waffling and deliberating. Just pick one thing. Just one. One small thing, and get it done. Then pick another.

Yellow Light (Maybe) The High Priestess – It’s possible you might want to let L pick for you.

Green Light (Yes)The Devil – Reward yourself for the things you get done. It will make each accomplishment that much sweeter.

Tarocchi Del Disordine, The Hero's Journey Dream Oracle, Spicy Pisces Lenormand

EarthSei di Spade and For This You Were Born – Move away from unhealthy habits and mindsets, and towards those things that you were “born for”. These are the things to come naturally to you, and just “fit” into place in your life.

AirOtto di Bastoni and One With the Sun – Lean hard into optimistic thinking and positivity. You need more of this. A lot more. As in it might feel excessive, and that’s still not enough.

WaterTwo of Pentacles and Dream Sanctuary – Make sure that you are balancing your time so that you get enough role-playing with Gideon to make things feel comfortable and safe and right in the world.

FireQueen of Cups and Attune To the Call – Be sure you’re supporting your inspiration drive and how it mixes with your creativity. When you’re really in the flow of creation, it’s a beautiful thing.

WaningRing and Key – You’re going to have to focus on other areas than your relationship this week.  It sucks, but you need to buckle down for a few days.

WaxingGarden and House – Give yourself some time to really appreciate your home and those in it, and invite Jer over to spend some time and help out.


Realistic Means Based in Reality

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Animal-Wise TarotToday’s draw is the Knight of Wands (Komodo Dragon), which is traditionally a representation of a projective beta energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s drive, passions, willpower, principles, inspiration, or enthusiasm. This often translates into themes that have to do with rash behavior and a go-get’em attitude towards the things that matter to that person.

You know that phrase “fake it until you make it”?  Sometimes?  That’s how you make it.   And sometimes it’s not about faking it but about being genuine and realistic.

Today’s card is a reminder to be genuine with who you are and realistic about what you can do.  That doesn’t mean selling yourself short, but it means knowing yourself well.  Take some time today to look at where you feel limited and if that’s really the case?  Or if it’s an illusion.


ReadingWickedly’s #MayDailyDraw Prompt
Question for May 22nd and 23rd

Joyful Healing Clarity CardsHow do I define strength?

The ability to detach (Numb) from one’s fear in a crisis (Afraid) so that you can lend support to others (Support) and take action to that will get others moving (Move Your Body).

Some people freeze in a crisis, unable to think clearly or act quickly. One of the ways in which I see strength and define it is in those that are able to move quickly past the moment of shock in a crisis, and into action to help not just themselves but others as well.

When do I need to be strong?

When you have an inner calling (Shivers) towards something that you are curious about or think you will enjoy (Curious), instead of holding back in order to punish yourself (Nurturance), you need to cut yourself a little slack and do them (Go to the Beach).

Too often in my life I have been taught that strength equals cruelty to oneself and letting go of the things you want to do instead of doing them. Now at this point in my life I am beginning to learn that it takes more inner strength for me to do these things than to set them aside and ignore them.


The #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge Prompt by E Roebuck-Jones
Questions for May 21st and 22nd

Animal-Wise TarotWhen do I give more to a relationship than I should?

Four of Swords (Chickadee) and Two of Cups (Daddy Long Legs) – When you know you need some time to rest and recover, but you instead give that time to others.

When is my happiness impacted by a relationship?

Five of Wands (Gecko), Queen of Wands Rx (Crocodile) atop King of Pentacles (Gorilla) – when there’s a conflict in values or principles where either or both parties involved are steadfast in their view, and thus refuse to connect and see the other side and where the other person is coming from.


Daily Self Kindness

Today’s post is a catching-up post, and so I’m not entirely sure what I might have done as a self kindness today.
