Full Moon Card Draw, With Thunder

It's a Full Moon tonight, and it was unseasonably warm for a couple of days. I wanted to go running and catch pokemons, but the garden needed tending and the taxes need attention, so I didn't get as much done on any of the things I want to have done, but did make some progress. Then it got windy, and cold, and the thunder came, and so I returned inside.

I divided out some of the tomato and pepper plants (where more than one seed grew in the same pot), and I scraped at some of my old pumpkin-squash seeds and soaked them in a tea of organic fertilizer. Maybe I'll have better luck with them having provided a little extra nutrition and made it easier for the seedlings to break free. I also soaked and planted some seeds from our iris and/or lily plants from a couple years back. I don't know if they'll germinate--those plants rarely even form seeds. But I figure it's worth trying to bring a little more beauty into the world.

And now to cards--I hope to send some good energy out into the world, to spark some hope and creativity. You can ask about real life or a creative project, or even a game. I can draw a card for you to meditate on, to represent the Guide you need right now, or to get you unstuck. I can draw a card for a character or can draw a card or cards for you to use as writing or art prompts. Play is sacred; ask for what you need, or just for the fun of it. Both new friends and old are welcome.

I hope you will stop by my garden. Dodge between the raindrops or come after the rain, when we can walk and see the buds on the lilacs and on the earlier rose bushes. We'll also see the weeds in the garden plot, of course. I haven't pulled them yet. And we can see the day lilies starting to push through the ground, and maybe a tulip or two. Then we can head inside for refreshments and, of course, your reading.

For free one card readings, you can pick from the Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle, my combined Susan Seddon Boulet Animal Spirits and Goddesses cards, or the Shapeshifter Tarot. You can ask a question, ask for a Guide, ask for inspiration, or you can just ask for a card. I don't need to know what your question is, but you are welcome to share it with me if you like.

The first card is free (though tips are always appreciated). Tips also let you ask me to use any of my other decks, to request a private reading, or to draw a clarifying card. If you want a longer reading, send a direct message so we can agree on the type of reading and rate.

Please consider dropping something in the guitar case below. Readings take time and energy, and even though the Milwaukee winter, like everything else, has been affected by global warming, winter heat is pricey and old houses always need repair somewhere or other.

Signal boosts are very much appreciated, and also earn you the right to ask for a clarifying card.

I'll leave the new goal open--if donations reach $50 or more, I will use one or more of the cards drawn today as inspiration for a new acrylic sketch/painting, which I will share here, so you can all see how you inspire me.</strong>

I'll periodically update progress on that goal here. So far, I have received $6 of the $50 needed to prompt a sketch-level painting. If we go over that amount, I will put more time into moving the painting onward from the sketch stage.

I understand all too well that when people don't have cash or spoons that is generally when they most need inspiration! Don't be afraid to ask for a card if you can't tip.

If you tip, it's helpful to me for you to mention it here so I can connect your paypal information with your request. Tips should be at least $1 (Paypal charges fees). If that doesn't work for you, drop me a message and we'll work something out.

I've written before about why I do readings and some of the decks I use here, feel free to hop over and check me out. I'll wait.

I will reply to all requests. In the highly unlikely event that the number of requests nears my limits, I'll close this card draw by adding a clear note at the top of the post rather than risk leaving anyone without a response. However, I intend to stay open at least for several days, and longer for paid readings. I've got a bunch of things going on, and I know you do too, and I want to give you time to find the post.

Thank you, and Blessed Be!

As always, these readings are for entertainment and inspiration only. See my "Dandelyon's Readings" page if you have questions.

Yeah, it's me again. I'm asking for something semi-specific this time, concerning the project my husband and I are working on. You choose the deck. And that crumpled-up dollar bill in the instrument case is from me :-)

Warrior of Earth
For you, I drew the Warrior of Earth, which corresponds to the Knight of Pentacles.

The image is a unicorn woman galloping or rearing up in a field. The field is also shifters, I think a grass woman and a long-haired wind being. Behind the woman is a grove of young trees or perhaps the edge of a forest, and that area has the spirit of a young man. There is a lot of sense of movement and of intensity of emotion, though I have questions too--is the red-haired woman running from the man, or is he guarding her? Are the two blonde/redhead figures in the field running with her, helping her, trying to help him, or...I'm not sure. They might even represent the kids of the two main figures. Oh, looking closer, there's also another, paler blonde woman who looks like wind in the grass to me. And the women here are smiling.

But there is definitely a lot of energy in this card, and if you have the skills and focus for a project, energy is a very good thing. But you should definitely make use of it while it's still here--warriors can keep going when they're exhausted, but that's less than optimal. Get as much done as you can while the sun is shining, the wind is at your back, and the work brings a smile to your face.

Re: Warrior of Earth
Yup, that sounds about right to me - thanks! I showed the message to my husband, and he agrees. Our time and resources are more limited than we'd like, and we can use all the energy we can get. But at least you've confirmed that starting the project was a good idea.

I would like a card please. Whichever deck calls to you. Bad stuff is happening here, of the sort that requires lawyers. Any positive energy the universe wanted to offer would be most welcome.

Three views of a stream
When I first pulled the deck from its pouch, I found the card Blindness staring up at me. In the background, there is an arid, dry landscape, but the forefront is a water snake-person, slithering in abundant water toward a trapped person-cliff which is supporting a waterfall. This card corresponds to the two of swords. The symbolism seemed awfully obvious as the starting place for your reading. But you wanted to know about positive energy that the universe might offer, and this clearly isn't the answer to that question, so,

I shuffled and drew The Mother. Clearly The Empress, but drawn as mother of the universe. She is stepping through water with a pegasus at her back. Above is a spiral galaxy an around her are stars. She holds one hand over her very pregnant belly and offers you a piece of fruit.

I'm not sure what blindness led to your troubles, but my strong sense is that the water that is eroding things and failing to nourish the people in the swords card is the very same water that the Goddess walks through and that her alter-ego, the pegasus-mare, is drinking from.

The reading seemed incomplete there, so I asked what's the most important tool you need right now and cut the deck to Happiness. A rainbow gleams above some otters in a stream, and the one that is leaving the water is shifting into a woman. Once again, the same stream, but here instead of being trapped by it, you're able to dive in and out freely.

I hope this brings you some inspiration for solving or addressing some of your troubles, or at least for how to survive and thrive despite them.

Re: Three views of a stream
Thank you. This makes a lot of sense to me, and tells me that at least one of the things I'm doing is right. Actually, two of them. It also gives a direction of where I need to look for more understanding. The river running through a desert has a powerful meaning in our personal symbology, and the concept of diving into it and moving freely through the rushing water is something we've worked with before - and maybe not fully understood.
