March 2019: Tarot spread for the new moon in Pisces

Astrology for the new moon in Pisces February 2019

The March 2019 new moon falls in the sign of Pisces. The Pisces archetype is highly intuitive and very open to the flow of the creative imagination. This is the sign of dreamers and mystics and visionaries, which makes this new moon an excellent time to flex your creative and intuitive muscles.

The March new moon also highlights our creativity and pleasure. It encourages us to step out of logical thinking and enter into a state of playful enquiry. This is the time to adopt creative thinking, to lean into our feelings rather than be ruled purely by our rational mind, and to express ourselves creatively.Continue reading

Radical acts of rebellion: living the slow life

Radical acts of rebellion living the slow life

I’ve been down with a severe case of viral, coupled with a stomach bug from hell. It’s not been pretty. I’ve been grumpy. And I needed a distraction, and to write. But seeing as I was confined to bed, the only distraction I had on hand was my phone. Writing ideas, well….none. So I did what anyone would do – I hopped over to my Instagram feed, and scrolled down in search of some inspiration.

I found this image from a couple of months ago, and decided to use it to write. Here goes!Continue reading

February 2019: Tarot spread for the new moon in Aquarius

Astrology for the new moon in Aquarius February 2019

The February 2019 new moon falls in the sign of Aquarius. The Aquarius archetype is radically individual, very strong-willed, and can be rather eccentric. This is a sign that is not afraid to walk to its own drum beat, which makes this new moon a good time to get clear on your own unique perspective on life.

After the powerful solar and lunar eclipses last month, February’s new moon presents us with a fresh slate from which to launch into the year. This lunation asks us to start at the beginning: with clarity on where we want to head and armed with a fresh mindset. This would be a good time to examine old thought processes and the limiting beliefs that hold us back.Continue reading

Tarot reading for February 2019

I don’t know about you, but this year didn’t feel “new, shiny” in January. There was a lot of planning, thinking, and an easing in, at least for me. The only thing that really took off is my time at the painty table.

So when I saw these tarot cards for February, it felt like a “Hell, yes! Let’s get 2019 started!”Continue reading

Tarot reading for November 2018

Tarot reading for November 2018

Here we are, almost at the end of another year. Just two months to go, and we will be ushering in 2019. This year has been tumultuous on the global scale, with movements like #MeToo, which shook the patriarchy but also highlighted just how deep seated it is and how difficult to dislodge it will be.Continue reading

Tarot reading for October 2018

It’s been a reflective September – a lot has come up in my journal for me to work through and integrate. And as I look forward, I wonder what the coming month has in store for me. Because as much as these are general readings for the collective, they contain clues and wisdom for me as well. And while I will do another reading that is specifically for myself, related to the exact areas that I want to focus on, these general monthly readings help me get a sense for the energetics of the coming month. I hope they do the same for you!

Tarot reading for September

Recently, I’ve been strangely resistant to actively doing anything. I don’t feel like writing or painting or slinging cards. At first, I thought I was burnt out or experiencing a creative block. But as the days went by, and all I wanted to do was read to the exclusion of everything else, I knew I was dealing with something more than stress.

What I needed is a sacred pause: some time to introspect, to integrate all that I have learnt and achieved during the year so far, and to spend some time planning and envisioning what I want to go after next. So instead of a traditional tarot reading for the month, I decided to draw some cards to help us reflect, journal, dream, and plan. I hope you’ll find this Sacred September tarot reading nourishing.

Tarot reading for September 2018

Remember, this is a general reading for the collective. My intention with this one was: what do we need to introspect on and why. I used three different oracle decks for this particular reading.Continue reading

All juicy thoughts to ponder as we enter into the eighth month of the year, don’t you think? And of course, there’s the tarot reading for August to offer further insights.

Tarot reading for August 2018

This month’s reading is slightly different – I was called to draw a card for the collective during the potent lunar eclipse at the end of July. The message that came through was powerful, and I knew this was a message we were meant to sit with this month. I added an oracle card pull for further insights, and it just reinforced the message.Continue reading

Tarot reading for July 2018

June’s gone by in a whirl of interesting new ideas, painting sessions, and FIFA World Cup matches. Germany lived up to the trend of spectacular exits by reigning World Cup champions; and Argentina and Portugal got knocked out last night. I wonder, will France lift the cup this year? They’re playing really well! But, let me not digress from the task at hand – your Tarot reading for July!
