Leo Season: Tarot Readings For All

Greetings from the Peak of Summer!

Leo Season has arrived! That means most of us likely need to tame our schedules of work and play.

I know I am as I get ready to head off to the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Fair! If you’re near Tacoma, come and say hello!

Since Leos love abundance, this week I offer two free tarot readings. A short and sweet one from my Arcane BS Oracle deck on Instagram (follow me if you haven’t already) and a ten-minute reading with the gorgeous Fantastic Menagerie Tarot Deck on YouTube.

If you want to know how you can pounce on the opportunities this season offers you, please contact me for a tarot reading or intuition coaching session.

I hope to see you soon!

Remove the Monster From Tarot

Hello! Greetings! Salutations!

As a writer and English teacher, I love words and etymology. Once, I pondered the word “Demonstrate” and realized that it may have the word “Monster” in it. English is a mess of so many languages that my guesses are often wrong though. So I looked it up, and  . . . huzzaahh . . .

From de- “entirely” (see de-) + monstrare “to point out, show,” from monstrum “divine omen, wonder” (see monster)
Source

To show the monster . . . to teach . . . just that these words are related is delightful. To have ‘divine omen and wonder’ included only uplevels my glee.

To de-monster-ate is the act of entirely taking the monster out of.

So much about Tarot is misunderstood. It is up to those of us who love it to demonstrate the truths of it.

If you know someone who has the wrong idea  around what Tarot is about, please share my most recent YouTube on What to Expect from a Tarot Reading with them.

If you want to look closer at the fears in your life to bring divine omen and wonder into any situation, contact me for a tarot reading or intuition coaching session.

I hope to see you soon!

Celebrating the Heart’s Absurdity

“You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”
– Mary Oliver, Wild Geese

This week, I said goodbye to the home that my parents have lived in my whole life. It’s a strange feeling. How do you find a satisfying closure to such an event? I don’t know the witchy rituals for this unique change.

I shared memories with family, but found that my parents and brother were casually disinterested in nostalgia. My best friends who grew up with me offered supportive commiseration, which helped, but I still felt alone in my experience. 

If Covid taught me anything, it’s how essential it is to nurture our tender moments with care, even if others are stoically disconnected. Being a Cancerian, I am accustomed to being an outlier in my emotions anyhow.

“This is the last time I will cook on this stove . . . this is the last time I will sleep in this room.”

On a seemingly opposite note, I also made a YouTube on a ridiculously nonsensical oracle deck. These seem to be disparate topics, but the philosophy of existentialism -which celebrates the ridiculous- is all about the inherent absurdity of this life and these memories we cling to.

According to this belief system, if nothing really matters, why not relish what you relish without a care for how others judge you. Absurdity celebrates each of us living for what we personally adore, however outlandish, and without regard for how we are looked upon by others.

While watching the flip through, see what cards make you laugh, and consider which ones disturb you. Cherish each response for bringing you closer to you.

Then, maybe write a memory of a place that you miss that makes your heart open to the past. Let the 6 of Cups play into your week, and learn more about it below.

If you want to look closer at your own quirky life story, contact me for a tarot reading or intuition coaching session to pay attention to the relevant thoughts that seem absurd at first glance.

I hope to see you soon!

How the Cards Helped Me on a Bad Day

๐Ÿˆ

Last week, I shared another Caturday reading for all, inspired by Dexter Murdermittens (see below) that reminded me just how the cards can support a bad day.

When I offer collective readings,  I do my best to keep my own path out of it. My intention is to give a reading that relates to a meaningful message my community needs to hear. Over time, it slipped my attention to listen to these messages for myself. 
Well,  the day after posting this reading, I lived out the cards,  and was reminded of the poignant ways these archetypes can resonate. 
After hustling to the river on a hot day, loading my car with boats and floats to share with friends,  I finally got to the calm part of the stream.  ๐Ÿšฃโ€After a busy week, wisdom might have suggested to slow down and take in the restful moment. My Tower card, however, often presents in doing too much at once. 

Instead of resting and relishing, I  took my phone out to take a photo and show off my new cell phone flotation dry bag. Realizing the device was inside the wrong way,  I opened the bag. ๐Ÿ™

My car key ๐Ÿ”‘, also inside,  flew into the river ๐Ÿ’ฆ. I reached out in a panic,  dropping my now unprotected phone into the very wet boat. ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ’ฆ
The only key to my car was gone, and my phone was soaked. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ My day off seemed ruined. Embarrassed and disappointed, I felt awful enough to bring to the surface a sadness that I couldn’t access before.  My Moon card emerged ๐ŸŒ›… a grief that I have been avoiding by staying too busy showed up full force (another Tower of mine).

The home I grew up in and have known my whole life was just sold as my parents move out of state. Suddenly, it hit me how sad I was about this sentimental loss. ๐Ÿ˜ข
As I recognized that message from the cards the day before, I put together that this Tower Card moment had opened up my Moon Card subconscious need. Remembering the 3rd card, I looked for a 9 of Cups to be grateful for and help heal this day.

The 9 of Cups appeared in my friends. ๐Ÿ†They listened as I had a big sob about far more than the key and the phone. ๐Ÿ˜ญThey each held one knee as we floated along while I wept.

Other peopele on the float called AAA for me (so glad I have this service!), some figured out logistics to get my gear home, one stranger told me a story of a time she made a similar foible. I felt allowed to be in my heart’s moment.
Luckily,  my cell phone was easily replaced with a  new quality phone for only $30 with a special offer! I was able to get a new key made. ๐Ÿ’–Things sorted themselves out. I see these blessings as a sip from the 9 of Cups as well. 

And, I was reminded to listen more closely to the collective readings. ๐Ÿ’•
I’ve also remembered to stay more present with my own grief,  and listen more closely to the subconscious feelings that hide in the shadows of the moon. ๐ŸŒ›
I hope you find the silver lining in challenges this week.  Mercury Retrograde is over, but it’s lessons can live on for our benefit.
If you’re bumping along on a rough river, ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ›ถ or want to keep sailing smooth in fair weather โ›ต๏ธ, contact me for a tarot reading or intuition coaching session to stay awake to your best choices.
I hope to see you soon!

Big Sigh,

Card Art is Awesome

Did you know that modern playing cards derive from the Tarot deck? Yup. Hearts are Cups, Spades are Swords, Clubs are Wands, and Diamonds are Pentacles. Take out the Major Arcana and the Pages, and . . . voila . . . we can play gin rummy instead of divining the future.

One primary reason I love Tarot is for the unique art in every deck, and how the cards are a part of centuries of history.

This week, I share a brand new playing card deck in the style of 15th century surrealist Dutch artist, Hieronymous Bosch. His fantastical designs never cease to impress me with their imagination and oddity. This deck is also super fun in that it is a puzzle that fits together into a larger image. Nice work, Sunish with #Guruplayingcards! #Boschcards are Great!

Speaking of fantastic. I love Cats. After years of allergy shots, I can enjoy them more fully. This week’s free reading is inspired by a Cat, and I welcome you to send me a picture of your favorite feline who you would like a reading for on my Instagram page @presentpathtarot.

To access your own animal sense, sign up for an Intuition Coaching session or package.

Alternatively, you can get psychic guidance when youย  reach out to me for a divination session or to learn the cards for yourself.

One more week in this round of 10% off any session during a Mercury Retrograde, good through June 22nd. Mention it when you reach out to me, or use the code RETRO2021 when you schedule a session.

I hope to see you soon!

Welcome to Caturday Tarot: Where a cat inspires a reading we all need.

Meet Bonsai. She clearly has some catnip addictions, and is trying to balance herself between her impulsive Queen of Wands nature and her grounded, but less established, Page of Pentacles. The 8 of Pentacles Rx implies that she is somewhat bored with her routine, and thus finds escape in the nip habit or other vices.

It would be healthy for Bonsai and those who relate to her to use that empowered Queen of Wands energy to get some exercise out in nature. Rooting into the garden or wilderness fulfills her burgeoning Page of Pentacles, who can use the lens of earth to see how slow growth and pacing yourself is sometimes best.

Moderation this week, Bonsai, moderation.

Rock the Retro(grade)

It’sย  become the most infamous of astrological events, the dreaded Mercury Retrograde. (Dun dun dunnnn).

People probably know it so well because it has a short cycle of 88 days, and so it comes around typically 3 times each year for about 3 weeks.

The thing is, it doesn’t have to be a burden if you look a bit closer into how to manage it. Each round has it’s own flairs that you can consider ahead, and sometimes these bring blessings!

My interview with professional astrologer Nicole Garรงeau was fun and enlightening.
I learned how we can consider the unique details of each Mercury Retrograde, align our own individual chart with our expectations, and make the most of the positive potentials. And, of course, consider how to shift gears to be ready for the bumps that may come up.

For those that don’t know, I always have a standing offer of 10% off any session during Mercury Retrogrades. Mention it when you reach out to me, or use the code RETRO2021 when you schedule a session.

To tap into your own inner wisdom, sign up for an Intuition Coaching session or package. Alternatively, you can get psychic guidance when youย  reach out to me for a session.

Rock the Retro!

This week’s free reading comes from the Ka Hana Pono Oracle deck by Connie Rios.
This deck celebrates aspects of the Hawaiian practice of Pono, living in harmony with the world and others.

๐ŸŒบ

๐ŸŒด

The top card turned out to be the namesake of the book, Ka Hana Pono.
This card placement speaks to Mana’o, or the direction of thoughts.
This speaks to the act of being present with your breath and your life. Become aware of your thoughts. Notice the patterns. Allow yourself the patience and consistent practice to build new healthy patterns in your mind.

The middle card represents the heart and how to guide our emotions.
Hi’uwai is the ritual act of completely immersing yourself in water.
Set an intention to be present with your heart and clear your energetic field and give yourself a ritual healing with water.
Combined with the others, I also see this as a message of letting things go to clear your mind of unhealthy thoughts and beliefs that are not serving you. Imagine your mind being washed with fresh spring water whenever toxic thinking floats in.

The bottom card is where to draw your focus.
A’ole no is get out of your own way. Let the divine enact the next steps in your process. Trust that you’re doing your work simply by staying in a practice of presence with Pono, and clearing away old toxic behaviors that aren’t serving you.
To me, this card reflects a similar message to the Hanged Man in Tarot. Surrender to what is and trust that the divine is supporting you as you are doing the spiritual work of self-awareness.

It’s a simple message this week, but sometimes that is the most poignant and powerful type of message.

Take care of yourself. Be aware of your thoughts. Bring presence to your process. Aloha.

Channel Your Art with Tarot

Tarot is a Fabulous Ally to Art

Channeling takes on many forms. It might be an intuitive moment to turn left, a dance that comes from your body unexpectedly, or a hand on the shoulder of a quiet friend at just the right moment.

The more I became adept at reading tarot cards, the more comfortable I felt channeling in other fields of life. Most graciously, this my opened up my writing to a new realm.

The Tarot helped me step away from the ego of aligning the words as “Mine” and let me be of service to share the messages more freely. Tarot taught me to let the art emerge without editing.

I believe we each can access our higher self through making the art we are called to.

This week, my short YouTube describes how you can use the cards to enhance your stories and relieve your resistance to sit down to write.

Resistance is a common challenge that artists of all sorts face. Even the most famous have had blocked moments.

This week, I ask you to consider what you feel called to create just for the fun of it and where the discomfort is with moving toward that path.

What type of book would you like to write?
What creation feels imminent for you to design in your future?
What holds you back from taking the first step toward this?

Being that it’s nearly Mercury Retrograde, the next few weeks are a great time to reflect on these desires, without any pressure to begin quite yet. Just allow yourself to ponder pleasantly.

For those that don’t know, I always have a standing offer of 10% off any session during Mercury Retrogrades. Mention it when you reach out to me, or use the code RETRO2021 at checkout.

For now, take in a Free Collective Tarot Reading to help you prepare for this round of Mercury Retrograde.

If you want to learn more about becoming a channel for yourself and your future creations, contact me for an Intuition Coaching session or package.

Alternatively, you can get psychic guidance when youย  reach out to me for a session.

Happy Creating,

Remember, sessions at Present Path are always 10% off during Mercury Retrogrades to anyone who mentions it. Use the code RETRO2021 on my scheduling page. Link in bio!

Deck: Fantastic Menagerie Tarot
@bababarock

This round, the Wheel of Fortune is reversed and flanked by the two of swords and the five of swords.

Slow your roll on decisions to be made. You need to approach them from a logical standpoint. At times, that means putting the answer to rest until you have more information.

You need this pause to come to terms with your own values in this decision.
Are you trying to win for the sake of winning? Or prove yourself to others?
Putting those reasons aside, without judgement, what *really* matters to you in this situation? How can you approach it from your own sense of what’s important?

Trust that the changes and challenges happening in your life, however uncomfortable, will pass. Make your best choices from a place of owning your values fully and acting from your highest self at the best time. You got this. No rush.

In the meantime, come get an Intuition Coaching session or a tarot reading to engage with the clarity you seek in your unique situation.

tarot Supports Transitions

So, what Transition are You in right now?

I feel like this question could be the new, “What’s your Sign?”

This year has been so full of learning and growth and, yet again, we are collectively entering a new stage of this odd era. Simply shifting into summer at this point feels a bit dramatic.

Tarot is at it’s best when we are in a liminal space between phases of our life. Luckily for readers, these are super common.

One of my favorite groups to read for, who I do a shout out to in this week’s YouTube, are those heading into retirement.

In a sense, this last year has offered many of us a chance to see what we might do with ourselves if we suddenly didn’t have a job. Of course, there were limitations to travel and socializing, which we may hope to enjoy when we each get to hang up our hat at work for good.

However, I personally gained a lot of insights into how I want to spend my time when I have more of it.

Cooking, reading, taking in moments with nature . . . all of these have added value to my experience of life this past year.

What has it been for you? How can this give you a sense of what you really want to become when you shift from your working life into retirement?

I am pretty sure that I want to keep reading tarot and coach intuition as I get older and, praise be, wiser. So who knows if I’ll ever retire fully?

To consider transitions deeper, I offer some thoughts around the Wheel of Fortune, the archetype of change. Enjoy learning about this card while also considering where you’re at in your current swirl of the wheel.

If you want to better access your own certainty during uncertain times, contact me for an Intuition Coaching session or package.

Alternatively, you can get psychic guidance when you  reach out to me for a session.

Take care of yourself, wherever you are in your phases.

May all your Transitions Be Smooth,

Card for the Week: The Wheel of Fortune ๐ŸŽฐโš–๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฎโ˜ฏ๏ธโ˜ธ๏ธ


“When you’re up, you’re up, and when you’re down you’re down you’re down, and when you’re only halfway up, you’re neither up nor down.”
-Grand Old Duke of York

When you go to a meditation ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ retreat, you are focusing on the state of constant change. One emotion evolves into another ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿคฃ One sensation arises and then passes away. ๐Ÿค•๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿคฉ The goal is to become detached from the desire to keep the pleasure or release the pain, so we become accepting with things just as they are. ๐Ÿ˜Œโ˜ฎ๏ธ

This is the wheel of Dharma โ˜ธ๏ธ in Buddhism. In Taoism, the polarity of Yin โ˜ฏ๏ธ Yang creates balance of that which appears in paradox. In Western antiquity, Lady Fortuna became deified to pray to for good luck.

It ain’t easy. And we all are currently in a collective transition. Limbo hovers on some aspect of most of our lives.

This week, consider how you can find equanimity with some aspect that you have no power over. Maybe say the serenity prayer to yourself. Find a friend who can laugh with you at this patience that’s required of us all. Sit in the paradox of ambiguous feelings that don’t seem to make sense, but do exist simultaneously.

And notice what aspect of transition you’re in right now. Find compassion for the uncertainty that you sit with. Praise yourself for how well you’re managing.

Maybe even sign up for a tarot reading that can help you make more sense of it all.

Meditation Supports INtuition

Mindfulness is Delicious

The beauty of working with your intuition is that you get to spend more time listening inward to your own wisdom. You get to relax into your body more.

You get to become the best advisor to yourself that you can be.

This week’s YouTube is a quick dive into mindfulness, followed by details about the Benefits of Meditation to Enhance Intuition. Take 3:45 seconds of your day to relax and consider the difference between fear and intuition for yourself. 

If you crave more around this vast subject, you can contact me for an Intuition Coaching session or package.

Alternatively, you can get questions answered from a psychic reader today when you  reach out to me for a session.
