White Space Lenormand Reading

White Space Lenormand Reading with the Ink Sketch Lenormand

Photo Album: Something important that you have forgotten.

Sun and Stork – You need to reexamine what really makes you happy.  Not what you think is supposed to make you happy, but what really makes you smile and feel good and happy on the inside. You have a habit of getting too caught up in the rigors of responsibility and forget to stay in touch with what actually brings you happiness.

Baseball Bat: Something simple that you can still wield.

Fish and Anchor – You have the ability to choose not to be weighed down by responsibilities, and the ability to let go and go with the flow instead.  It’s not as hard as you think to just loosen up and let things move at their own pace instead of constantly tangling yourself up in the expectations you put upon yourself.

Violin: Something connecting you to something larger than yourself.

Letter and Man – This is Gideon. It’s about the fact that he is constantly reaching for you and there for you, allowing you to lean on him and sharing honestly with you what he thinks and how he feels from one day to the next. Through the example he sets in this area, you strive to be a better person yourself.


Ostara 2023 – Spring Equinox

Today is the Spring Equinox, which is considered by many to be the first day of Spring, and is one of only two moments in the year when the sun is exactly above the Equator and day and night are of equal length. After this day, the brightness of daylight begins to overtake the dark hours in the sky as the days continue to longer and longer, and the nights shorter and shorter.  This transition is the basis within the celebration of the holiday itself, as we celebrate the warming and awakening of the earth as she prepares to share her abundance and generosity with us all.

In my path, the Spring Equinox is also known as Ostara.  Although this holiday is celebrated (as Easter around) the world by those that embrace many traditions that originated in Paganism, most don’t realize the full and rich history that this holiday holds.


Like with new moons and full moons, I usually do a spread to check in with myself and give myself some direction for the next couple of months for each solstice, equinox, and other Sabbats. This spread is an adaptation of my Self Care Saturday spread, so there are sure to be  some similarities in how it is read. The focus of this spread, though, is not about Self Care, but rather about progress and my path. The time period is also longer, reaching through the next handful of weeks until the celebration of the upcoming Beltane at the beginning of May.

Spring Equinox Tarot Reading with the Pagan Underworlds Tarot, Compendium Of Witches Oracle, and Healing Herbal Cards Vol 1 & 2

Theme of the SeasonSpring Equinox, New Moon, Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)

The Spring Equinox is a time of renewal. Buds are showing on the trees, early crocus and snowdrops are breaking free of the soil, farmers fields once dry and brown are beginning to green once more.  The energy is fresh and new, bright and ready to break free of winter’s hibernation, even if it has to do it in fits and starts in the beginning, it will continue onward as the daylight hours become longer and the earth is warmed by the sun’s return.

Like the Spring Equinox, the New Moon is also a time of great potential and the stirring of new energies.  As the earth plans its way forward towards spring, so too with this new moon is the energy ripe to plan our way forward and utilize the growing energy between now and the full moon to its fullest.

Dandelions are an antioxidant and are excellent for stimulating digestion. It’s often used in cleansing the liver and kidneys.  It is cleansing properties fall over into the metaphysical as well, as it can be used to disperse negative energies, and is associated with abundance, wishes, hope, and luck.

When looking at these three cards together, I am reminded about what the energies at this time of year are all about and the renewal that can happen when you set aside the negative aspects of your past to focus on the positive.  I was never really much of a believer in the “power of positive thought”.  In fact, it was one of those things that could be guaranteed to create an eye roll in me for much of my life.  And yet?  After finally giving in and giving it a try?  I can’t deny the benefits it creates.  No, it doesn’t erase the bad, nor should it be used to ignore the bad… but it definitely makes the bad far more tolerable to work through.

EarthStrength – Your connection with others is strong right now, as your influence. More so than usual, considering how much you like to avoid social obligations. Use this time to help steer things in the direction you want them to go.

AirKnight of Wands Rx – You’re not feeling particularly inspired or impulsive right now when it comes to your spiritual path. Remember that it’s okay to have some downtime now and then, and it can keep you from acting (or reacting) rashly.

WaterThree of Swords – As indicated in the air position of this reading, you are currently in the space of a “down time”. Stop beating yourself up about it and referring to yourself as a disappointment. It’s okay to drop the ball sometimes… in fact it’s needed, and isn’t something that you need to be punishing yourself for.

Fire – Five of Coins – As already noted in this reading. your energy is scarce at the moment and you are in a time of hibernation. Don’t worry, the thaw will come eventually, and you will come out of this hibernation refreshed.

WaningThe Shapeshifter and Light – You spend a great deal of time trying to grasp other’s viewpoints and empathize with their situations, illuminating their experiences so that you can not just find common ground but understand their way of doing and seeing things.  Right now, though?  It would be better to step back from this on your spiritual path and focus more on your own practice and path instead for a time.

WaxingThe Stargazer and Storm – Tests and trials are coming.  Ground and root yourself into your own practices for a time, and you will eventually be ready to open up and be receptive once more. For now, it’s time to focus closer to home on those things that are unique to your own path.

Take Away – You are in a period of rest right now. Sometimes breaks are necessary, and often they are when you experience the most growth, just like a child experiences the greatest growth spurt while they are asleep in their beds. Don’t get down on yourself about taking this time. It’s all a part of the process.


🌑 New Moon in Aries – March 2023

Tomorrow 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.

New Moon in Aries Tarot Reading with the Tarot Cars Deck

Clearing: What dreamy depths have I plumbed for long enough?

Seven of Wands Rx – It’s time to step away from that “top space” you have been residing in for quite some time now in your relationship and in the play. Release control and let yourself “be small” again.

Transitional Pause: What vague abstractions of the past are kindling for this new moon?

Five of Pentacles – Remember that you are not as bad off as you feel like you are. That negative inner narrative in your head will always make it seem worse than it is. Don’t forget how aggressive that inner narrative can be in trying to get it’s own world view across and don’t allow it’s unhealthy tendencies to drag you under.

New Seeds: How can I direct this energy with headstrong certainty?

Ten of Pentacles – Stay on task with your goals and don’t get distracted. Keep yourself grounded through the storm with the knowledge that what you are seeking to accomplish is indeed better, but will take it time to grow and build into.

Light In the Darkness: When is frustration a cue for sacred rage rising?

The Hanged Man – There are some perspectives that you are just not meant to see or understand, no matter how hard you try.

Planetary Boon: What physical activity will help me keep my fires burning all season long?

Six of Cups – Revisit some of the places that you have been before, and reestablish your affection for them. Sometimes returning to what you’ve already done in the past can kindle new fire.

New Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.

The Magician – You’ve got this. There’s nothing you can’t handle with a little bit of ingenuity.

Heron Energy Lenormand Reading with the Magickal Folklore Lenormand

How can I ground myself in order to better navigate my emotions?

Bear and Man – This is Gideon, and the advice here is to allow him to have that place in your life as your protector. He is fiercely protective over you and provides you with a safe place to let yourself be vulnerable.  Ground yourself in that sense of safety and protection he provides so that you can allow your emotions to flow more freely.

Where am I being called toward more reflection?

Ship and Birds – Later this month you have a trip coming up that needs a good deal of planning and preparation.  Make sure that you are putting in your due diligence to make sure that the trip starts off well and that there is as little disorganization and chaos as possible.

How might expanding outwards towards others lighten the weight I’m carrying?

Bouquet and Fox – Those you are close to can assist you in weeding out others with not so pure of intentions.  Listen to your loved one’s sage council and take a moment to try and see what they see, for they are trying to warn you about someone who does not have your best interests at heart.

What needs to be shed to make new growth possible?

Heart and Stars – You have a habit of giving people with bad intentions too much of your hope and faith.  That faith in humanity and the goodness of everyone can become a problem, as it ends up knocking you down again and again. It’s time to shed the naivety that ties your hands and leaves you too hopeful for goodness from corners where there’s none to spare.


Weekly Creativity Prompt – The Fool

Prompt: “Pull the Fool card from your deck(s). Compare the imagery between the card provided below and the card(s) from your own deck(s). How would you read them differently and why?

Modern Love Tarot - The FoolModern Love Tarot – In the imagery of this card, it looks a lot like the figure is working on a love spell.  The thing is?  Most people realize with a bit of thought and experience that love spells nearly always backfire.  You can’t force someone to love you.

The figure in this card has not yet learned that lesson, and so plunges head long into the endeavor without realizing the dangers or the consequences. This card tells us to take time looking at the methods we’re using to reach our goals and make sure that they’re sound. Don’t plunge forward without a good deal of thought.

The Fool in the Beyond Tarot, Tarot DNAxCAT, and The Little Nemo Tarot

Beyond Tarot – The skeleton heads down a dark path with a smile on his face, not intimidated by the darkness even though all they have for light is a single flickering candle.   They continue to dive forward, seeking the new and exciting. Intrepid and moving forward eagerly.  This card speaks of exploration and curiosity, and encourages the querent to dive in and explore without fear.

Tarot DNA x CAT – Boundless energy and a sense of effervescent adventure fill the imagery of this card.  The cat is full of a sense of adventure with the sky and sea at their back and new adventures to the forefront.  The features of the cat are filled with enthusiasm, and the little ghost joins in with an expression of wonder as they bound forward eagerly. This card is all about enthusiastic adventure, and welcomes that energy into the querent’s life.

The Little Nemo Tarot -The figure on this card sits in contrition, a dunce cap sitting on the bench beside them. Sometime when we act too hastily we make mistakes and make a fool out of ourselves. This card asks the querent where in their life are they acting impulsively and possibly going to end up feeling as if they fucked up later on when everything’s said and done.
