11/19/18: With wit and wisdom.


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))


Whatever your plans may be this week, approach them with the wit and wisdom delivered by King of Swords.


This energy is not about aggression or conflict – it doesn’t need to be, King of Swords can afford to be gracious – but consistency in thoughtful approach.

Do your best to enjoy this holiday week; be thoughtful and kind in the dealings with family, and remember to count your own blessings.

And as always, be happy, safe and well.

11/16-18/18 WEEKEND: Take your pick!


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Abundance. Opportunity. Decisiveness.

November is a particular time for gratitude.

(Yes, yes. I hear you. “Well, sure. Thanksgiving and all.”)   

It is too easy to take this time for granted; too easy to get too busy, too easy to focus on what you need (rather than what you have), too easy to get distracted.

This weekend, make it your priority to weigh options, and make choices, based on what you already have – do not be distracted by want – and approach your decision-making with a clear head. Realize just how much you already have, and include gratitude in your plans.

PRACTICAL MAGIC TIP: Start each day with a moment of gratitude; first thing in the morning, write down at least one thing for which you are grateful, and smile to yourself. By the end of the week, you will have a list of at least seven things you are grateful to have in your life. AND! you will have started each day with a smile – increasing your attitude of gratitude, creating positive energy flow, and spreading it to others (even if you did not realize it). Well done! 🙂

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage—to move in the opposite direction.” 

— E. F. Schumacker


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

The Seven of Wands delivers Two for Tuesday:

  • Stand your ground.
  • Simple is not the same as easy.

As we move through this week, answering the clarion call of Judgement, we will start to see who are friends really are.

SPOILER ALERT: Not all of it will be pleasant. 

Not to worry; you have everything you need to stand and deliver. Your detractors already know you are ready for battle, and so you will see them coming out of the woodwork. Do not be surprised if the vandals wear the familiar faces of family, friends, co-workers; this is where your Hermit meets the road – it doesn’t matter what they say, do, or want – this is all your show so do not back down.

SECOND SPOILER ALERT: Some people won’t like it, and may act poorly.

Short answer: Fuck them.

Longer (and possibly more enlightened) answer: Do not worry about it. They’ll get over it. And if they can’t (or won’t), that is the signal to let them go. You have places to go and things to do and you DO NOT have time for anyone else’s baggage.

No matter how taxing it may feel in the moment, know you have what it takes.

11/12/18: RISE AND SHINE!!!


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))


As the holidays approach and the year winds down (Thanksgiving is a week from this Thursday!), it would be very easy to get caught up in all the usual end-of-year rush around panic.


This week, we are called upon to wake-up, get-up, and get to it!

The clarion call of Judgment powers this week; pay attention, and move forward in new direction(s). You may not know where you are going or what you will do but not to worry – you’ll figure it out.

Keep your head up and your eyes open –  this is your week to make new waves!

And just for fun, The Andrew Sisters!

11/09-11/18 WEEKEND: Everything old is new once again.


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Struggle. Success. Nostalgia.


And so our week concludes with some hard-won lessons, and a fresh look at old joys; a near-perfect use of our week’s Three of Cups energy.

Take time this weekend to have fun – the more carefree the better – whatever that means to you and yours.

11/08/18: Opportunity knocks!

Building the future with new seeds, fresh starts, future growth.


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Our week is closing on a positive note; Ace of Pentacles speaks to opportunities of growth in our lives – abundance in anything we choose to pursue.

What will you do with this energy? What will you build? What will you create? 

Whatever you decide to do (or not do), be sure to understand your choices matter, your intentions matter, and where you put your energies matter. You are responsible for what you release into the world.

11/07/18: Banes & Blessings – Step right up!

“I’m your Hell, I’m your dream. I’m nothing in between.”

Meredith Brooks, Bitch


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Princess of Pentacles brings us the midweek; love, abundance, growth, generosity…also temper tantrums, demands, some jealousy, and stubbornness.

She is still a Princess not yet The Queen.

Princess of Pentacles is a great many things all at once; always shifting into different aspects of herself, not always pleasant, constantly learning who she is. She is both comforting and terrifying in her presentation as she welcomes and warms us while showing us exactly what we need to see. She is part of our tangible world, and she helps us learn how best to live in it….not necessarily comfortably.

We love her but she makes us nervous.

The Princess arrives on the heels of Justice (Karma), perfectly placed to help us metabolize the lessons of the week. Whatever is going on in our lives (individually as well as collectively), we have assistance in turning it into something positive.

REMINDER: This Princess leans towards kindness; be sure to access this part of her energy to the fullest as we can all use more kindness.

And just for fun – because I love it and it really does speak to me – I give you Meredith Brooks:

11/06/18: Karma’s calling!

“Karma bus delayed due to high demand. No worries. It’s coming.”

((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Justice (read Karma), swoops in this week, armed and ready to go!

Karma delivers COD so be ready to pay up when she arrives.

“The best revenge is always to just happily move on and let karma do the rest.” Unknown

REMINDER: If you are inclined to act is one of Karma’s enforcers, please remember that is NOT how she works. You will be called up to answer for your own actions – no matter the motive.

NOTE: In the US, mid-term elections are held today; Karma may take many forms, and we may not recognized all of them. No matter what occurs, take heart – nothing lasts forever, not even our troubles.
