10/02/18: Difficult not deadly.


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

We see some material challenges this week; maybe more bills than money, unexpected home or auto repairs,  a difficult situation with unattractive choices. Or as we routinely refer to it, life as we know it.

Don’t panic; think it through, sort it out, make a plan – remember, King of Swords leads the way this week – and attack the issues head on! 

REMINDER: Despite how you may feel in the moment, you are not alone. Allow the people in your life to assist when and where they are willing and able. Trust your tribe.

10/01/18: Get right to the point!


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))


The Season of the Witch is upon us as the skies grow dark ever earlier and the leaves turn and fall to the ground. The veil thins, the holidays approach, and we ready our homes for family and friends. 

Getting right to the point this week; you are full of big dreams, fabulous plans, and new ideas. The Swords are well-represented this week so we will be doing quite a bit of active thinking, awake or asleep, and some of it will be disturbing.


The ruling energy of the week is King of Swords; we are in control of our thoughts, not the other way around, and we know what to do. All that remains is to make decisions:

  • What will you do?
  • How will you do it?
  • When will you do it?

This is your week to make whatever you like so get to it!

09/28-30/18 WEEKEND: Be aware!


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Protect. Defend. Balance.

We enter the weekend with a warning: keep yourself safely in balance.

The current landscape really lends itself to fits and starts, blame and anger; did you watch Dr. Ford’s testimony? Read any of the commentary – enough to make you scream out loud, right? Yeah, me too.

Let’s all take a step back, take a deep breath, and make some clear and balanced decisions about our own behavior. 

  • Are you registered to vote?
  • Are you spending your resources responsibly, and in keeping with your beliefs?
  • Are you keeping up with your self-care?

Your passion may be compelling to others but take care it does not become destructive; this is a time to move forward with clear goals and rolled up sleeves.

REMINDER: Love your tribe; do not allow philosophical disagreements to become too large – agree to disagree where appropriate. Tolerance (and intolerance) should never be blind, and should always be used with discernment.

09/27/18: And we’re back!


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Look who’s returned to lead us into the weekend!

This message is simple enough; remember what we said on Monday about seeking counsel? Well you had better do it, already!

Sincerely, whatever is holding you up, just ask for help. It does not necessarily involve an expensive professional – do some google research, talk to people, ask around. If you find professional help is needed, start seeking referrals and making phone calls.

Good luck!

09/26/18: RIDE OR DIE!!!


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

King of Wands rushes in with a fiery message: TIME TO RIDE OR DIE!!!!

DO NOT PANIC: Tarot messages  is not literal.

But do not ignore the sense of urgency you are feeling.

You know there are things you should be doing, and this energy is here to remind you it it so very much later than you think. The time to move is RIGHT NOW.

So, whatever you have been thinking about, planning, trying to choose, etc., the waiting is over and the tie for doing is now so get right to it. 

NOTE: If you are afraid you are not prepared or not ready, stop worrying, get moving, and adjust as you go. Sometimes, learning to shift on the fly is the only thing you are supposed to be doing – that will be the success when you review the tapes later.

09/25/18: Don’t get it twisted!


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Tuesday finds us tangled up in energies not entirely our own – don’t get it twisted!

Take what is your own and walk off – leave others to deal with their own drama.

REPEAT AFTER ME: Not my circus, not my monkeys.

Peddle your bananas elsewhere and avoid stepping in anyone else’s mess.

NOTE: If you are entangled with someone because you are enjoying the drama, KNOCK IT OFF!! You do not have time for that. Move it along!

09/24/18: Under The Bohdi Tree


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))


Autumn (and Winter) bring us darkening days and introspection; we feel the need to consult spiritual counsel this week – no harm in asking for guidance (from well-known and trusted  sources) when you need it.

So, if you are feeling some nagging questions this week, no problem. Write them down, speak them out loud, and watch for signs. If you need earthly assistance, google, helplines, consiglieres, whatever. Reach out, ask for assistance, trust but verify, and decide for your self. Seeking counsel is may be advised, blind obedience is not.

09/21-23/18 WEEKEND REMINDER: Though our hearts may soar, our feet do not.


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

Compassion. Passion. Grounding.


YAY!!!! Boots, scarves, falling leaves, apple and pumpkin spice everything! YAY!!!*

This weekend will be all about the feels; we are feeling all the feelings with little of no let-up. This is not necessarily a bad thing – it is good to be in touch with your feelings (all of them, even the “ugly” ones) – as long as you remember to stay grounded. 

Since it is Autumn, and grounding can be tricky, I suggest the following simple steps you can take to assist:

Drink coffee, eat a muffin: While I am aware “food is not the answer!” this particular pairing has an almost instant grounding effect because of their tangible physical labor. These things must be “made” (by you or someone else) in practical, earthy ways. Each sip, and every bite connect you to not only the physical realm but the earthy energy they convey from their beginnings as beans and grain. Also, you gotta eat. Since the season has arrived, perhaps a mocha latte and apple spice muffin are your ticket – I know I love it!

Yard work: Yard cleaning in Autumn (as in Spring) is necessary. If you have not started trimming, raking, clearing, cleaning, storing, etc., consider getting started this weekend.

Clean out your car: While certainly cleaning anything will help ground you, cleaning your car can not only ground you but give you a feel of satisfaction because unlike your home, it can be completely cleaned in a relatively short time (two hours or so), it is likely to remain clean for a longer time. It may be early for winterizing your vehicle but it is not too early for a change of season tune-up, check the tires, change the filters, etc.

Refresh the linens: Air the blankets, wash the linens, prepare bedrooms for cozy sleep with open windows (rather than A/C). Which brings me to the next suggestion…

Sleep with the windows open: If you have not already doe so, turn off the a/c at night and sleep with your windows open. Listen to the night sounds, smell the night air. These earthly experiences for their own sake are grounding as you sleep – sink right in!

Whatever you choose to do this weekend, please keep in mind the feels are everywhere and they make some people over-sensitive or easily irritated; be kind – to yourself as well as everyone else – and if you need a time-out, do not be bashful about taking it.

Enjoy the weekend!

09/20/18: Tend your own garden.


((Sun and Moon Tarot, Vanessa Decort))

As we head towards Autumnal Equinox Weekend, we are reminded of the importance to tend our own gardens.

We are so easily distracted by our daily lives; work, school, errands, chores – always running, always doing – it becomes very easy to skip tending to ourselves.
