Dreams, hopes, wishes, mania,  daring to bring castles in the air down to earth, the need to be able to decipher good choices from bad, being kissed by moonlight, debauchery,  emotional drunkiness, Venus in Scorpio

from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot: “Daydreams- both realistic and fantastical, delusions, choices, hopes, ambitions: some plausible, others not. dangerous delusions, lunacy”

Seven of Pentacles: questioning our material needs. What is necessary to reach our goals?  What must we strip away?  Taking a rest from our work to reevaluate.  Are we happy with the fruits of our labor?  Was the toil worth it?

from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot: “Reviewing what you’ve achieved.  A time to contemplate and to consider.  Making plans at other people’s expense.”

Seven of Swords:

seven of swords

The perceptive qualities of the rational-minded number seven meet the airy aspect of Swords.  The pursuit of knowledge.  A need and desire to work on one’s own.  Eccentricity.  Stubborness and willfullness.  Evasiveness.  Keeping secrets.

from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot: “A small piece of dishonesty or deception.  Mixing with things you don’t fully understand.”

Seven of Wands:      Fiery challenges and fights.  Destroying obstacles.  Strength in the face of adversity.  Staying true to one’s self.  The ego.

from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot: ” A battle that you know you can win.  A fight against the odds.  Getting a buzz out of winning through a difficult situation.”

“Riches I hold in light esteem
And Love I laugh to scorn
And lust of Fame was but a dream
That vanished with the morn–
And if I pray, the only prayer
That moves my lips for me
Is–’Leave the heart that now I bear
And give me liberty.’

Yes, as my swift days near their goal
‘Tis all that I implore
Through life and death, a chainless soul
With courage to endure!”- Emily Bronte

*A Reading for a woman who wanted some more insight into her husband’s health as he prepared to undergo testing.*

Using my Bohemian Gothic Tarot, I pulled three cards: The Empress, Nine of Wands, and Seven of Pentacles.

So we’re dealing with nature, the cycles of birth, life, death, and rebirth. Using courage to get through a Situation. Contemplation. Looking back at what you have successully completed before moving forward.

All this pointed to a time of a change for *John* (name changed)

As the shadow side of the Empress can mean acceptance of physical death, I wanted to make sure we were just dealing with normal change/transformation and not the biggest kind. Therefore, I took out my Russian Gypsy Fortune Cards. Most importantly, I did NOT pull the hearse or anything at all of a negative nature.

Two pictures formed once the cards were shuffled. The Heart and the Angel. *John* would be surrounded by love, and protected by a heavenly presence.

Using the information from both decks(and my intuition) I concluded that I thought whatever *John* was going through was not life threatening and he would get through his health problem with the support of his loved ones and spiritual helpers; as well as using his own courage to do so.

On February 25th, I did a reading for someone who was on the brink of separating from their partner. The couple have a very young child, and while this child had not been told of the situation due to their age, they sensed something was wrong and had begun suffering fits. Therefore, the querent asked if the child was, at some level, blaming themself for the tension in the house.

To find out I made a specific spread. The results for this querent were not positive ones, but they were truthful and necessary. In case it may be of help to others in a similar situation, here are the questions I asked:

1. How you see yourself:

2. How child sees themself:

3. How you see child:

4. How child sees you:

5: How child sees partner:

6. How child sees self in relation to the problems at home:

7. How you can help child deal with the situation as best as possible:
