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.


Clarity Over Nostalgia

Today’s meditation was I timed, and took place in the back of the car prior to taking a nap. It primarily involved breathing exercises meant to help with calming the nerves and relaxation.

Britt’s Third Eye Tarot - Knight of Swords Today’s draw is the Knight of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of a projective and active beta energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s thoughts, intellect, education, ambitions, and communication. This often translates into themes that have to do with pursuing one’s goals related to their education, actively seeking one’s goals, action and decisiveness,and at times can indicate impulsivity.

With all the warnings in the last handful of days about a “snake in the grass” concerning this trip, and the fact that the Knight in this card is charging into the past (heading left), I see a reminder to stay clear headed, watchful, and sharp today.

This means making sure you are ready for what may come so that you can jump in quickly when needed as we traipse together down memory lane on today’s trip and tasks. Be ready to move quickly concerning people you encounter from your (or Ms B’s) past today.

A crystal candy jar will have to do cuz I couldn’t find a glass jar in the place I was at this morning. The lighting is also not the best, but I did what I could.

I took a much needed nap in the car on the way to our destination today.

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.


The Ripple Effect

Today’s meditation was skipped.

The Fountain Tarot - Six of CupsToday’s draw is the Six of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of the emotions that circle around topics of nostalgia and looking back into the past and embracing the joy and innocence that often comes with childhood memories and remembering past relationships.

Make peace with your past. No one’s past is all bad. Take time to seek out the small positive moments and allow your mind to linger in the memory.

Teach your mind to focus on them, instead of always honing in on the negative experiences. By doing so, you allow these positive experiences and feelings from the past to ripple outward into your present like the ripples of a pebble dropped in a pond.


#DiscordTarotholicsMar2023 Challenge Prompt
Prompt for March 19th
: Do the Ostara Spread – The Spring Equinox is tomorrow! With daylight and darkness now in equal measure, we welcome spring’s arrival with open arms after the long cold of winter’s embrace. Today’s spread takes a look at some of the elements associated with the Spring Equinox, and the advice they have to offer us.


Tulips – Loyalty / Forgiveness: Where do I need to practice forgiveness to foster stronger loyalty?

Eight of Swords – This card reflects back up into the card of the day that I pulled earlier (the Six of Cups). It is a reminder that, even though our mind focuses on the bad things that of happened to us, it doesn’t negate the fact that there are good things that happen to us as well. We need to find a way to turn our focus to those good things, instead of dwelling on the bad ones and blinding ourselves to the positive experiences we’ve had.

Robin – Compassion / Patience: How can I give myself more compassion and patience?

Nine of Coins – Instead of constantly pushing for more out of yourself than you’re already giving, take time to look at all that you have accomplished and appreciate how far you’ve come.

Rose Quartz – Unconditional Love: How can I be more open to offering unconditional love to others?

Queen of Wands – Offer from a place of power rather than weakness. You have the ability to share your passions with others and stir up their passions in return. Use this instead of coming into the situation from a position that feels like you are at a disadvantage and you will be far more comfortable being more open with them.

Aquamarine – Calm / Courage: What do I need to help me to stay calm and courageous in the face of adversity?

The Sun – Hope and a positive outlook. In order to stay calm and courageous you need to make sure that you are leaning into positivity and optimism, as well as trying to give yourself opportunities to have fun when you can. This helps to lighten your load as a whole, which then assist you in remaining hopeful and courageous when adversity raises its head.

Butterfly – Transformation: What sort of transformation is waiting for me this spring?

Three of Coins – Even more connection with others who help you along with your endeavors. It’s so hard for you to ask for help, but over time you have begun to do so more easily. This trend will continue over the spring as you appreciate the value of other’s contributions more and more.

Clover – Luck / Protection: Where in life will luck play into protecting me from potential harm?

Six of Cups – Experiences from your past will rise up to help you with future challenges. This will feel like luck, because you already have the answers after having gone through it before.

Rabbit – Fertility / Abundance: How can I encourage more abundance in my life this spring?

The Devil – Watch out for unhealthy habits and patterns to rise up, and nip them in the butt quickly.


Daily Self Kindness

I took my time leaving today. By not rushing myself, I allowed myself to not get so wound up and stressed with the process.

3/19❤️ 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?

Self Care Saturday Tarot Reading with The Likely Tarot and Ink Sketch Lenormand

EarthTwo of Cups – Focus on family this week. Not family by blood, but more specifically your chosen family. There’s a lot to get done on the trip you’re embarking on in the week ahead and you need to keep your focus on what matters.

AirFour of Wands – Seek out moments of stability within those times that you feel most comfortable and linger in them. You can carry that peace and stability with you in small ways, when things are more hectic or chaotic.

WaterSix of Swords atop Eight of Wands – Don’t get flustered when others try and rush you along. It’s going to happen, just be ready for it and do the best you can.  Remember that the best you can is enough.

FireKnight of Pentacles – Remember that they can’t force you to hurry up if you need to go at your own pace. Don’t allow their pushing and prodding to stress you out.  Just keep going and you’ll get there.  They can wait while you catch up.

WaningSnake and Stork – Move yourself and others away from the “snake in the grass” trying to take away your “good thing”.  Someone you visit along the path of this trip does not have anyone’s interests at heart but their own.

WaxingLady and Whip – Help Ms B feel like she’s in charge and is calling all the shots. She’s feeling especially powerless at the moment and could use the empowerment that allowing her to hold the reigns can give.
