Tarot Tuesday: Trust the Process

Spooky month is here and my sweet tooth is acting up. Oreos and peanut M & Ms galore. I am also hoping to watch American Horror story as I only reached the third season before I stopped watching. But on to the universe and seeing what it wants to tell me.

Conqueror of coins & seven of coins

These both compliment each other as they each talk about hard work and dedication. Celebrating the work that has been put in and enjoying the rewards for doing so. Reaffirming my long term goals and efforts I’m putting in for the future I am hoping for through my routine and general hard work.

There are times I am not sure what the cards are specifically referring to as I have a lot happening. Career and school tie in together while my health and self care are personal. If it applies to both as I feel they do then I hope it can continue since these are times where it’s nice to know my efforts are being recognized somewhere.


More updates coming and introduction to some writing I’ve been working on be coming. Stay sweet everyone and hope your week is lovely. Comment below what your favorite Halloween activities are!

Health Delays: Crazy life

September is already a hectic time. School starting. Vacations ending. Summer showing it’s last remnants as we wait for the leaves to turn. School can be overwhelming since the season calls for sickness as I’ve been sick the past couple of weeks. Between headaches, sniffles, sinus issues, and now shingles.

Yes apparently not only did I have chicken pox when I was younger (this was never confirmed) but now I have shingles. Which usually is common for the older age group but being seen in a younger crowd is unusual. No one is sure what activates the dormant virus again. Stress, low immunity, depression, anxiety and essentially everything that could possible lower your immune system and life really.

It started off with my leg feeling rather strange. I thought I probably messed up lifting the kids or slept wrong. I did have a previous back injury so I’m not a stranger to my back and nerve pain in my legs. But as the days progressed. It worsened and I felt no relief with over the counter pain meds. I was exhausted trying to power though the days with this leg and back pain that I debated going to the doctor plenty of times. 3 days later I found a small rash in the morning and by nightfall it has progressively gotten worse. Next morning, it was worsening and the pain switched to burning and needs along my whole thigh and back. Doctor confirmed it was shingles.

Least to say it’s been an uncomfortable week. The best way I can describe how my leg feels is I had a long leg day session, dropped hot oil all over my leg and back then being randomly pricked with a bunch of needles. Constantly. Clothes are uncomfortable. Moving is uncomfortable and the nerve pain spreads to the outer parts of where the rash is.

I’m still doing my best to keep up overall with life. Been gaming more and studying when I can. Completing assignments and doing tasks for work. All while making sure my family is okay. Hopefully, shingles gets cut short and I’m able to have fun in our family vacation next week.

I’m excited to introduced new tarot decks I found that are absolutely adorable. Can’t wait to use them and have them in my collection. Stay tuned and stay sweet everyone!

Tarot Tuesday: September Theme

First tarot Tuesday of the month for September! I am excited for the weather to cool down. Fall weather is probably my favorite season of all time. It’s time to break out the hoodies and get comfortable. No more AC running and the kids seem more comfortable being in cooler weather.

For this tarot Tuesday I’m focusing on a theme for the month. What should I pay attention to this month? What should I be doing this month to help me further myself? The answer…

Four of Swords

This card brings forth rest, relaxation, and peace. After the chaos there’s a moment for rest. To understand my priorities and re-evaluate my next steps to come.

A wonderful time to bring this up. This month usually brings me peace, not only with the weather but anniversaries coming for my husband and I. We have a family vacation this month, our son returns to school, and overall it’s when we start to feel that end of the year feeling right before the holidays. I love all the holidays and plan to make it special for the boys. Comment below with your favorite holiday and why. Stay sweet everyone!


So thankful to be in a place of being told to settle down and rest. It’s been a constant state of stress for me but it’s time to bring it all down and look out for myself. School term has started for me as well and I’m slowly trying to keep up with the work. But I also want to invest some time into write a book for Amazon if that’s even possible. Seems like time escapes me and there’s not enough hours in the day. Organization first and hobbies later!

Late Night Read: Balancing Life

I use to be a night owl. Now there’s times I can’t wait to be in bed. Kindle in hand or laptop for studying. Usually the kids are asleep and that’s when I can take a deep breath and focus.

Tonight I am exhausted and have assignments to catch up on. Procrastination at its finest. I’m still missing 2 research question assignments, 2 project submission and reply to discussion board before the end of Sunday. I must work well under pressure considering I seem to always do this. But after my week off I hope to get myself on track and be ahead rather than behind.

Tonight I drew two cards based on the feeling I always get.

Ruler of Cups & Two of Coins

These cards compliment each other as they speak to balance within myself and around me. Ruler of cups focuses on the balance in heart and mind. To keep my head above any drama and move forward. While the Two of coins speaks to balancing my life. It asks if I’m attracted to being busy (YES) and how I should delegate the tasks and not put so much on myself. It’s asking me to move forward with a better way of balancing this lifestyle so I can have a more positive outcome which I mentioned above with school.

After this week off, I hope to have an easier time with myself and start to write again. I am writing a horror/sexual story. But I’m unsure if it’s okay to post it. I do believe I have my blog set to be a mature content poster. But it’s hard to know at the moment. Hopefully I can figure it out. Or I’ll post the scene/story and hope to not get flagged.

Tarot Tuesday: Intro to a New Deck

Grand rising everyone. August is here and I’m ready for September to come around already. August is a rough time for me personally. It comes with a lot of painful reminders and a bittersweet air as the days pass. Granted I’ve found strength in my current life and I grieve each year as a reminder of my loved ones. Now for the card of the week.

Seeker of Wands (AKA Page of Wands)

Interesting.

This card signals courage, opportunity, Fresh ideas and positive energy. Focusing on ideas and creativity this shows passion to succeed, new opportunities to pounce on, but the lack of experience makes the unknown intimidating. Distracted by all the ideas and vision it’s difficult to focus on only one. It’s letting me know the universe is aware of my inner battles and this card feeds my courage to move forward with these plans and work towards the bigger picture.

As someone who potentially (not properly diagnosed but have been evaluated) has ADHD (the inattentive type) this hits home for me. My mind is constantly on the run with ideas and plans for the future. It’s exhausting at times but it keeps me moving forward. If I can break up everything into small steps I’m confident I’ll succeed in my ventures. Although some will take time and some planning. I am excited for the next chapters to come.


I recently bought a new deck from Threads of Fate. One that describes this deck as bold and brutally honest. I’m yet to engage the deck as I would like time for it to settle and formally welcome it to my life. They’re beautiful and truly one of a kind.

I plan on using it soon in some of the Tarot Tuesday segments. But for now I’ll let it settle to then show it off to my readers. my journeyer is already a bit sassy but it has grown in the past year to be quite a partner that I adore. I am hoping the same or so with this deck.


I hope you all enjoyed today’s segment. I am collecting different clients readings to show and tell you all about. At times it seems rather personal to share but many don’t mind. If you’re interested in a card pull reading and give you a sense of what the universe is trying to tell you. Please feel free to reach out to me on my social media below. Until next time, stay sweet everyone.

Welcoming Another Month: Card Pull with Fave Product of the Month

New week means a new card. Usually I’d wait for the morning of Tuesday but I felt it should be today. (Read til the end for my fave product of the month!)

Luck, Fortune, Cycles & Inevitable Fate

A card that comes to remind me of the cycle of life. Where there’s good; there’s also bad. Overall I feel positivity radiate from this today. Letting me know that through a series of some unfortunate events. I’ll survive and surpass again. I’ve survived more than I’ve anticipated so far. Thus I’ll dwell in the good and overcome the challenges that steer my way.

Lately it feels like challenges come from all sides: work, school, and life. I’ve managed to overcome each one as an uphill battle. I hope to see the light at the end of the tunnel through it all. I still have my worries, inevitable procrastinations, and easily overwhelmed moments. I trust the process and what I can achieve step by step. I hope with the universe’s guidance. I’ll continue my progress in this journey I chose to be on.


What a way to start the week! Weekends can be stressful for me and it’s easy to count on the cards to ease my doubts and give me guidance in my time of need. Here’s to another month coming and more blogs to come: New cards to introduce, Tesla Related, and as always: Life.


Product of the week: Lip Mask by Laneige

My secret to soft lips and it’s part of my nightly routine. I wake up to wonderful soft lips vs the dried cracked lips I used to have. I had a tendency to rip or bite off the skin. I even use it on my older son who tends to lick his lips a LOT. It heals his lips basically overnight. This lip balm contains antioxidants, vitamin c and hyaluronic acid to heal and keep those lips moisturized and supple. Can’t help but love this product.

Saturday Update Vibes: Card Pull

Long week with tasks still left to do. My goal is to at least go to the gym 3-4 times a week to swim and warm ups. But I might have to more swim suits since one has been tiring to wash and dry the same one. I’ll probably hand wash and let it dry in the bathroom. It’s been a wonderful experience swimming again. Feeling one with the water and going home with my arms heavy from a good workout.

Of course procrastination has left me with many college homework assignments this weekend. Time has been my enemy and there’s no slowing down these days with work, getting organized and trying to get some sleep for once. A year of school left and I look forward to completing school and walking in graduation.

The High Sage (Aka High Priestess)

Decided to do a card pull with the intention of wanting to know what I should focus on. This card focuses on intuition. Asking to reclaim the wisdom within and be grounded. All of which I needed to hear and feel. Lately been thinking about the future a lot. It can be stressful and wishing things would happen when patience is needed to achieve what we want. I plan to enjoy this stillness and appreciate the current time. Every moment leads to an end. Enjoying the now and soaking in the memories are important.


Hope you enjoyed this little update. I’m also trying to write a story and have plans to continue writing more. I am not sure if they’ll be short stories or longer. Will keep you all updated. If you wish to connect my social are always posted. Stay sweet everyone!

Hoping for Growth: Tarot Tuesday

Starting up the series again. Hopefully I can post for both Tuesday and Thursdays or at least one of the days depending on clients and cards to share. With permission from some of my clients I’m sharing their card pulls and a vague insight of them and their card.

Ten of Swords

This card indicates disaster. You can see the hands are being stabbed which in a sense signifies betrayal of a sort. Their mental space is chaotic and they’ve been running from themselves however now is the time they face that. This client has been in turmoil with themselves for a while. An anger they felt had to be hidden deep down pushing to the surface whenever a complicated situation presented themselves. They’ve started to realize that certain situations are simply out of their control and growth is possible. Although not a pleasant card I am certain with the epiphany the client had after realizing they have been running they can push and overcome this disaster of emotions they hold.


Hope you enjoyed reading! I’m hoping to continue to ask permission from clients to share a bit of themselves when I draw a card. Usually there’s not much intent except asking what the universe is trying to tell them. Most clients I know personally. Some I do not and they share a bit on how they feel the card represents them or their unique situations.

If you’re interested in being part of this series. Feel free to reach out to me on any of my socials below and mention “Tarot Client Blog Series”. Stay sweet everyone!

A Pair of Cups: Revisiting Myself

Weekend getaways (or any time get away) has always been a good way to rejuvenate. For my family it’s a way to change our scenery from city to woods. The air is different and the mood changes. The kids take in their surroundings and enjoy the car ride with their favorite songs. The trip passes quickly and back home we go.

Before heading out, I drew cards for myself. Sometimes I get this feeling when I look at the box I store my deck in. I do my best to answer and hold the deck to see what it wants to tell me. I wonder if it’s because the universe wants to remind me of the little things.

Six of Cups & Sovereign of Cups

The six of cups speaks of nostalgia, healing, comfort and familiarity. While the sovereign of cups speaks to emotional maturity and creativity. After this weekend with family, I had time to think about how much time passed. Growing up and having kids of my own. The difference between myself as a teenager and now. Hoping I have time left and many years to come to experience all the emotional maturity I can attain. (Not so much the physical part haha). Revisiting yourself from time to time can be difficult or peaceful. This time it was peaceful.

5 Weeks Post Op VSG: Does it Get Easier?

5 weeks in and I’m feeling better mentally and physically. Granted I could walk more for some exercise but rather wait for my stomach to be fully recovered at 6-7 weeks before I attempt further distances in this heat. I won’t get into specific numbers yet until I’m further in but so far a total of 20 pounds have been lost! Exciting.

I am starting believe it starts to get easier. As someone who sees the pros and cons of things it’s been easy to see both sides.

Pros

  • Learning to eat slower
  • Diet changes to eat healthier
  • Portion changes
  • Less time spent eating
  • Less temptations to eat out
  • Reevaluate my relationship with food

Cons

  • Limited overall consumption of food or liquids
  • Difficult to eat and drink (recommended to wait 30 min to an hour after eating to drink anything)
  • Difficult to truly enjoy food all at once
  • Learning curve when eating small amounts

A lot of the cons are mainly learning curves of having this new stomach. It’s difficult if your previous relationship with food was to eat all at once, eating quickly or used to eating and drinking at once. All these habits become difficult and need to constantly remind yourself to stop once you start feeling full. It’s easy to feel uncomfortable if you overfill yourself and you risk heartburn, nausea, vomiting etc when doing any of the above cons.

I’m looking forward to going to the gym with my current weight loss and furthering my wellness journey. I’ll update in a couple of weeks. In the mean time, I did do a tarot pull this past Tuesday.

The Chariot

This card is about overcoming difficulties in my life and letting the positive come through. Whether it be about my health, work or personal life I can see this coming through for me in every aspect at the moment. I hope to continue down the path of positivity.


Thank you all for reading. I do enjoy updating about my life here and there. More tarot based blogs and updates coming. Hope summer hasn’t melted everyone!
