This spread I did tonight because I have been feeling really sad lately and I needed some guidance and clarity. .✨Why have I been feeling so down lately?✨ The Sun; at first I was kind of shocked, but then I realized it to be very accurate. I have seasonal affective disorder, which means that my depression is heavily impacted in the fall and winter.
.✨How can I work on not letting things bother me as much? ✨3 of Pentacles; The thing that comes to mind with this card is support and help. It won’t hurt to reach out to others for help, and it will even be so much more helpful if I have people around me who are supportive and loving. .✨How can I get through this hard time? ✨7 of Swords; I was confused at first but as I let it soak in a bit I understood what it was trying to say to me. I believe for me it’s saying not to hide in my ignorance or my shell of comfort. I tend to do that when things are getting too much. This doesn’t really help you grow though if you are ignoring what you are meant to be learning. .✨What will help me most this week? ✨6 of Swords; this card is trying to tell me that I need to REST. I need to relax and do things that bring me comfort or makes me happy and build up my energy. I’m thinking I will keep on drawing everyday and maybe even read some books... which I haven’t in a long time. .✨How can I keep my head up? ✨4 of Wands; this is telling me to look forward to the upcoming events in my life with joy. They are basically telling me to enjoy myself and be proud of how much I have completed instead of focusing on the things I haven’t yet done. .✨How can I find positivity in my life? ✨2 of Cups; Open myself to relationships of all kinds. They are telling me not to close myself off from others and let people in. .✨What can I do moving forward? ✨The Hermit; meditate!! Find my awareness, look deeper. 🖤 This was a super helpful reading, and will help a lot going forward. Sometimes we just need those reminders to keep going. Not to mention the death card kept falling out... so the reading was pretty accurate for me. 💖I hope everyone is doing good tonight/today💖
Two of Wands and The Magician - The Hobbit Tarot
This is a message of manifestation and it's a wonderful message for this time of year moving into the holiday season. The Two of Wands is about future planning and preparation. It's about knowing your goal and working out how to achieve it. Here in the Hobbit Tarot we see Bilbo and the dwarves in the trees after they've set fire to the brush to escape the goblins. They know their goal, buy they have no idea how they are going to get to the next step of their journey. They don't give up hope, though, and right at the moment they were going to despair they were rescued my Gwaihir and the other Eagles. This card is a reminder that while things may look difficult and you may feel there's no way out, hold onto your hope. The Universe will deliver what you need even if it isn't what you expect or the way you want it to look.
The addition of the Magician adds a powerful dimension to this reading. He is one that manipulates the elements to create what he desires. When the Magician knows what he desires he creates it. Gandalf is an amazing example of this. He rarely just manifests something from nothing, rather he encourages others, nudges fates, and lines up events and things so that his desired outcome will come to pass. In both the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings we see this. He doesn't expect things to manifest overnight and he recognizes that things take time. Many of his plans take decades to come to fruition. Yet, what he desires and envisions always comes to pass, even if not in exactly the way he had expected. This is a message to keep your intention. With diligently to hold intention and focus and direct your energies towards your desire. You do your part and have faith and trust that the Universe will rise to meet you and the its part.
You are powerful beyond measure. You are worthy. You are magickal. 💖
My He”ART”: “Meditate🧘🏽♂️ or Rest😴”
Over worked? Exhausted? Tired of the bullshit? DONE DONE? 🤔 no wonder I received this morning the “4 of Swords” (from my created Fools Journey Tarot, links below) When the “4 of Swords” comes up in your reading or while doing a reading ALWAYS remember this is NOT a dying or death card! what it is advising You is to take a chill 👉🏾💊 wine down & take it slow.. you are in too deep in a certain situation & HAVE to step back in order to look at the situation from afar. Rest up, so you may be able to regenerate/ recooperate yourself to be able to think & act more clear. The “4 of Swords” can also be advising you to meditate or take your ass to church (whichever religion you practice) & humble yourself to 🧿 remove all that bad “jou jou” that’s around you!
“In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
& I held my tongue as she told me.. Son, fear is the heart of love, so I never went back.”-Death Cab for Cutie.

Serving wisdom and face. To make the unboxing of the #angelsandancestors deck special, I took inspiration from the beautiful colors of its box cover. Gold and greens. It looks so elegant and quite wearable.
These are screencaps from my unboxing and reading video. Have you seen it? The card I pulled was Knight - who I was drawn to when I first opened the deck in the car.
Oracle Friday: The Five of Pentacles. This maybe considered the only negative card of the deck. It represents the adversity in life. It refers to isolation, illness, insecurity, depression, worry, homelessness, negative change, financial loss or burden, proverty or fearful of it. Two destitute people walk through the icy wind & snow past a church embedded with 5 pentacles in a stain glass window. The windows represent hope, faith, & spiritual support. One person is injured and on crutches, while the other is barefoot covered in a thin blanket. Because the two people are focused on their negative state, they fail to see that help is available to them as they continue their journey. You may be financially struggling or experiencing some type of loss. Maybe you are feeling depressed, have an illness, or negative feelings. Your ego maybe bruised or feeling alone. Maybe you are missing opportunities because you fail to notice their availability. This could be a result of manifestations from a negative mindset. Maybe you fear that you will lose something valuable. Re-direct your attention to what you have, not what you lack. This isn't a permanent event in life. This card could suggest you help the homeless or those need. Donate to charities or support community projects. The holidays are rolling around & winter is setting in. You may want to donate clothing and warm clothes. Maybe you know someone who is sick or down & may need positive words of encouragement.
