Day 8 on the road to Reader’s Studio 2017

Well it is later in the day than I like but we are still traveling this open road to Reader’s Studio 2017.  I am swamped at the day job. I am working hard on my Pagan Path work as well as enjoying time with the chosen and blood family.  It seems that today’s pull is really about creating that space to do the work and using my tools to make it happen.

 

The Magician reminds me that I have what I need to get the job done. Just need to use my powers and find my focus. My tool set is right there so empower it to help me in my work.  And if I am lucky my familiar will be there to strengthen me as I go.  I like it!

Day 7 on the road to Reader’s Studio 2017

I can’t believe it is Wednesday and there is so much going on this week as we prep to get things set up for RS 2017.  I have put in my order for dinner on Saturday night at the event, I am trying to pack what to wear and what decks to bring! So many little details one must not forget but the card for today is… The World!

The World is big but I don’t have to do it all.  I am sure there will be things I forget.  I need to just keep to my packing list and focus on what I want to learn this time. I am sure I will have a terrific time especially with all the wonderful people coming this year. I get to connect with the East Coast folks I have met over the years and through social media too.

So much great stuff to look forward to this year.

Day 6 on the road to Reader’s Studio 2017

Tuesday seems to be like it is a relief it sin’t Monday but really I have had a hard time with Tuesdays.  But it is second day of the work week, right? We know there is only 3 more “work days” to go after it is over.  What Tarot less can we learn from our deck today to help us move through out the day?

 

Page of Cups!  Well there you go! Time to engage my creative side.  Maybe more art work or my chosen art, Cross Stitching! I have a couple of things I am working on so it is time to give myself some focus on this and get those projects done. What art can you work on?  Share if you like.  I will do the same as soon as I finish the small project.

Day 5 on the road to Reader’s Studio 2017

Back in the saddle again! Yep Off to the day job and keeping the office running as well as myself. Just a few more weeks then it is on a plane to see the folks at RS17.  I can’t believe i have been attending off and on since 2007.  Yes to some folks that is not much as they had been attending since the beginning, but for me this is a good thing to celebrate.

So what card did we get for today?

 

Knight of Cups- Carry my love of Tarot and RS to others who are new to the event! Got it! And keep sharing my knowledge and light. I am looking forward to the new things I will learn as well as sharing my perspective on reading with others. This should be a great year.

Day 4 on the road to Reader’s Studio 2017

When I think of the adventures of the day and the fact that I get to go to a baby shower and see chosen family expanding their family, it makes me smile. Going to Reader’s Studio helps me expand my chosen family each time I attend.

So what card did I get for today?

 

8 of Pentacles: I get to create things that are my own. They may be influenced by people in my life but this time it is mine. I can do the work and make something that brings me joy and fulfillment. The choice is mine to do the creating. I know- Just write the book!

Day 3 on the road to Reader’s Studio 2017

It is Saturday and I had a nice breakfast with my mom.  She is a very strong woman who inspires me everyday.  If she had Paganism around her as she grew up I am sure she would be a very powerful Coven Leader. She is loving and cares for the people in her community as well as her family. It is something I try to do in my community and for my chosen family as well.

And the card for today is:

9: The Hermit- Time to do some inner soul work. Get in touch with what I am looking to do with my Tarot. Focus on the part that makes me happy. Enjoy the quiet contemplation of the possibilities. Make my plans and create the steps I need to follow. It is time to get clear.

Day 2 on the road to Reader’s Studio 2017

It is Day 2 on the road to RS17! And yes I am gearing up for a terrific time.  I am sharing a room with Jaymi Elford and Andrew McGregor. They are both very creative and I hope some of it rubs off on me to actually get things out in the world besides my teaching and podcast.

So here is our draw for today:

12:The Hanged Man- Well dear reader I guess you know what that means. Yep, I am stuck in a space that is not bad just stuck. Time to look at a new perspective and imagine things in a new way. Just a reminder: I hold the keep to keeping me where I am.

Day one on the road to Reader’s Studio 2017

It is that time of year again where I head to the East Coast to participate in Reader’s Studio put on by The Tarot School.  I had a blast last year and was excited to go again this year. I was so happy to see some names I have known for a bit up on the Reader’s Studio stage this year, Kooch and Victor Daniels as well as Ferol  Humphrey and then a new to me voice Mitchell Osborn. I am looking forward to all I will learn this year as well as seeing folks again.

So I decided to pull a card a day to lead up to arriving at RS17!  This year I am using the EveryDay Witch Tarot by Deborah Blake and artist Elisabeth Alba.

 

Day 1: 4 of Wands- Celebrate the gathering together of my tribe. Rejoice in our love of all things Tarot and celebrate what we will learn and the camaraderie we will gain this year. Sweet! I can’t wait!

When Death arrives it is the call to let go now. Nothing needs to be questioned. If you want to grow you have to let the past die. If you want can, leave that stressful situation and open up to a new path or new vision.
