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!

Tarot Tuesday: Comforting Wands

Haven’t done these in a while. I still have a connecting with my Tarot Cards and I try to keep it close whenever I can. It’s been over a year since I start practicing. I still have some anxiety about reading other peoples cards. But, I do it if asked. The experience is unique and shows more than some anticipate.

Today for tarot Tuesday we have two wand cards. I usually only pull one card but I was drawn to both and when that happens I can’t help but listen. I trust my deck to be honest with me at all times.

Seven of Wands & Sovereign of Wands

Seven of wands talks about standing my ground and releasing negativity while rising to the challenges I have ahead. It also says to commit myself through all the insecurities. If I had to choose what this is speaking about it would be my recent surgery. It’s been a struggle almost everyday but I’ve continued to power through it as much as I can. More for myself and for the future I’m trying to achieve of a healthier version of me overall.

Sovereign of Wands speaks to empowerment, confidence and warmth. Good things are in the works. Creativity, multitasking and let myself be everything that’s wonderful while allowing myself to enjoy the feeling. Opportunities will come and I’ll face them with successful if I allow myself to believe it will succeed.


If anyone is looking for a reading. Reach out and I’ll accommodate based on my schedule. I mostly do one card readings as of now. Reach out through any of my socials below or comment on this post. Happy last day of May!

The Coins that Follow

Been a while. But I’m here and always ready. I prioritized family, school, work, and perhaps a little too much of Genshin Impact this past month. None the less I continued to practice my Tarot and my interests.

This past month I reconnected with my deck after a few weeks of not making contact with it. They have a funny way of telling me to focus on my path and that I’m on the right path for success. It recently told me to not crumble with the foundation that’s been built. All this comes to me in different forms of the coin cards.

Ruler of Coins & Six of Coins

Odd enough when my husband pulled a card for himself. It spoke about long term planning and future. To not rush into anything and look for opportunities. Thankfully, we are in no rush for the future and wish to live in the now and enjoy every moment. It’s eerie at times when the universe speaks to you. But I tell people to believe in themselves and the journey ahead of them. Whether they’re only starting their spiritual wellness journey or still on it.


It’s been a hectic month as I only get busier at work and focusing on everything in life. I miss blogging and I’m still here for the most part. Any down time I have will be for blogs. Hope everyone is well! My socials are below for connecting.

Life

Being Enough

Weather changes bring about a stir of emotions. Transitions and new year begin to settle as time escapes and you start to feel there’s none left for yourself. That’s why this is a journey. My journey of self care and self love.

Being overwhelmed at times can cause certain things to suffer. I want to be present when I blog. To write and come back to it either later or consistently. That was my plan. However, I’ve found myself with less time and more time to hopefully grow. I’ve always been good at certain things. But never excelled the way I’d hope. I’ve settled to be only good enough since I haven’t found my calling or it hasn’t found me. Sometimes I don’t think I ever will. Perhaps there isn’t a calling. I just need to live, enjoy and watch everything else grow or hinder. To be thankful while also struggling with doubts.

I’m learning to be kind with myself. To devote my titles of mother and wife. But, I should be kinder to myself. Remind myself that I am enough. Even if there is room to be better. Strive for it and accept that there will be difficult days too. The universe has a funny way of giving my signs. And I’m ready to listen.


I hope everyone is doing well. Tarot Tuesdays will be returning soon as I still practice tarot and still take appointments. Thank you for reading. Stay sweet everyone.

Let’s Talk Anime!: Fruits Basket

This has been the first anime in a long time that I couldn’t wait to write about. Of course there’s other but this one. THIS ONE. Left me with no choice but to write a review on it. Valentine’s Day is close by and with the upcoming release of the prelude to this anime. I thought why not.

Let me start by saying I didn’t watch the original. This is for the newer fruits basket. If the older one is worth it. I’ll watch it and enjoy that one too.

Fruits Basket is one of those animes that if you have no knowledge or background on what it is. The little summary will confuse you. You’ll read it and probably ask yourself. How can a show about people who turn into zodiac animas but they’re human and this female character be interesting? It has an almost perfect 5 star on Crunchyroll. The character looked pretty. I was like okay I’m going to either cringe or like this. Well, I loved it.

Tohru is someone you must protect at all costs. I understand it. The characters understand that. It’s a given. Most of the time you just want to hug her and make everything better or want to face palm yourself because she always cares about everyone except herself. The show is very slice of life, romance, psychological type genre. You meet the Zodiacs one by one who are all from the Sohma family line. Tohru automatically befriends them all. She’s the light and warmth that brings everyone together. Meanwhile, the curse and bond that holds the zodiacs together has subjected them to abuse from their God and/or their family. Some you see more than others. Especially Kyo, Yuki, Shigure, Haru and Momiji. The others you see here and there. But I believe Ritsu is a definite minor character you hardly see throughout the series. Overall, the characters and their development are wonderful. Tohru’s mother although she passed away before the series begins; is a major character throughout the show. It’s hard to not love her and cry at times for not even meeting her while she was still alive (hence the prelude coming). A lot of tears were shed for each character. There’s times where you’re frustrated, sad and overjoyed. But you start to get the flow of everyone’s emotions and then you’re on this roller coaster of emotions the whole time.

Spoilers Start Here. Don’t read if you plan one watching! Skip until Spoiler Ends

I won’t lie. At first I was so feeling the Yuki and Tohru ship. I found kyo frustrating in the beginning and Yuki was just someone you want to hug. Kyo had this wall that was difficult to read. Eventually you see why this isn’t a thing. How Yuki sees Tohru as a mom instead of a spouse. That’s fine. I actually like how they gradually built up their relationship and how they eased off the whole romance thing to focus on her and Kyo.

My favorite couple overall has to be Haru and Isuzu. The emotions and the way Haru reacts every time he sees her or when she sees him. It’s sweet and bitter due to the emotional abuse she’s endured. Her dedication in trying to break the curse to free them and love openly since Akito (God) would hurt her for loving him and being happy together. The way Haru tries to protect and be there for her while also loving her so passionately kills me since he can’t do much when she hides the abuse she endures with Akito. Isuzu although coming off as mean or distant at first is emotionally damaged from her past and when she cries into Tohru’s arms I couldn’t help but cry with her. Not knowing a parent’s unconditional love and feeling like a burden to those around her to decide to be kind is a lot to carry.

Spoilers End Here!

Honestly, this is only a snippet of so much in this anime. It’s 3 seasons. First two seasons have 24-25 episodes each. Then the 3rd has 13 episodes? There’s so many characters to love, like, hate, dislike that it’s hard to put it into one blog. If you like Romance, Slice of life, with some psychological trauma/drama involved. Check it out. And if you’ve watched fruits basket. Comment below on who your favorite character is and why.

Connecting Again: Much Needed Tarot Pull

I think in life we always want more. Whether it be personally or professionally. That’s okay. We all do at some point or another. It’s difficult to settle into something and wonder if it’s what we want to do for the rest of our lives. There was a point I asked myself: where do I want to be? Where am I going? Am I going to learn here?

I consider any and all lessons in life to be of value. Whether it be good or bad. We are all always in some way or form learning and gaining experience from our current selves in order to serve and/or assist our future selves. Generally as a spiritual person I do believe things happen for a reason. I hope it and believe it with everything I have.

I’m still unsure of who I am. What I want. I have goals and things I want to do. Constantly stressed about the future we will have. Will I teach my children well? When everything fails what will I have left? It’s a thought that can keep me awake at night. I’m sure many others too.

Something else I have always strived to have is connection with others. To have people to uplift and push me to be someone better. I hope I do the same for others. I appreciate the ones who are there for me and tell me I can do this even on days I don’t think I can do it.

Today I felt the need to pull some cards. To connect with my deck again to feel what it had to say. And alas it tells me the same as before. Justice and Ace of cups. That I’ve been wronged in the past and airing it out or perceiving it as part of a greater good benefits me. Meanwhile Ace of cups signals new beginnings. Both of which are generally true. It’s been almost a year of doing Tarot and these cards have brought me comfort like no other. I hope to continue using them through my journey of self love.

Ace of cups & Justice

Love this moon crescent dish I purchased from Midnight Seams that you see in the banner imagine. She’s one of my close friends through motherhood. Also, she has custom or ready to ship shirts. Embroidery items. Vinyl stickers. She’s amazing and can’t wait to see her small business grow more with time. Check her out!

Tarot Tuesday: Reflecting on the Past Year and What’s Next

Seven of Wands

Card of the week is Seven of Wands. This is a card for boundaries and challenges ahead. A way of warning to stand my ground no matter how hard it may seem. Jealousy is brewing and others yearn to have what you have.


This past year has been a hectic one. As I reflect on the year. It feels like many chapters have unfolded and I’m no where near the end. I believe there’s more to come. I always feel the need to push forward not knowing where to stop. To continue to climb even though I might fall. I’m grateful for every year that there’s growth and knowledge added. For the experiences and people who came in or out of my life. I strive to have peace, love and success in my life and spread that if possible. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday and if you’re not. I hope it gets better. I do plan to continue blogging and sharing things in pieces. While continuing my NSFW dream story. But we will see. Stay sweet everyone.

Christmas Eve: A Break from Knowledge

Can’t believe it’s almost the end of year. and today is my first day break from college! It’s rough doing part time work, college, two kids and everything else in life. Although it’s two weeks. I’ll be looking into the classes a week before to outline my work and get a head start. As a working mother it’s rough most days to wake up as early as 6:30am-7:45am to fall asleep after 12am. Some days I’m nodding off in front of my laptop or computer chair trying my best to stay awake. Especially now during the season of sickness where if one of us gets sick. Mostly like we will all be sick.


I didn’t blog as much as I wanted to this month. Sometimes being so busy can take it’s toll. Emotionally and at times even physically but I enjoy this. Putting my thoughts and energy into the universe to make things a little more positive for someone or anyone. I try to be there for those I care about and spend the quality time they want or need. Even if it means virtual Starbucks dates with friends as I sit in my car and we laugh about things we catch up on. These small moments are what I love in my friendships with people. The ones I game with, talk to every other day and the ones who uplift each other. The holidays tend to be a time of happiness and even heartbreak. So trying to find the good in a time where things have been dark for some time keeps me going.


With the extra time I have I can fit in some readings in my schedule. If anyone’s interested feel free to reach out in my social links below or text my business number at: +1 (917) 635-7597 so we can set something up. Stay sweet everyone. Happy Holidays!

Tarot Tuesday: Card of the Week and Power Animal Wonders

Ruler of Cups

Back with another Tarot pull for the week. Here we have Ruler of Cups: Balance, Compassion, and Kindness. It signifies a balance between head and heart. A sign of leadership and the balance of emotions. Whether I’m being challenged personally or enduring a challenge. I must remain mature and level headed to keep peace amongst all. Keep in mind that this card is also known as King of Cups when searched.


As you can see I also am using another cloth. As someone who always felt connected to orcas I felt as though this was the perfect cloth to use for my spiritual readings. I sense that there’s a reason I dream of an orca when trouble comes my way and when life becomes overwhelming. I’m still searching and trying to figure out the meaning. Is there a deity at play? A past I’m trying to connect with? A spiritual line I’m accessing? So many questions and I find myself wondering after all this time. Does anyone else have dreams they feel emotionally connected with? Or a power animal that comes to them or has been with them for as long as they can remember?


Many have asked me where did I get my cards. And they’re from Threads of Fate ; they have a good amount of options to choose from and they’re absolutely gorgeous in person. There are many options to Tarot. Pick the one that draws you in. Whether it be from them or cards from Etsy. Only you can choose what works for you and which you feel connected with. Good luck and blessed be everyone.
