2 The Priestess - image of a person in a textured blue hoodie. They have a hand up holding a crescent moon's tip to their open palm. An arc of runes behind the person

The first card we pulled is The Priestess, a two.

We are tuning into our intuition in new ways.

Trusting that this is a part of our journey - our seeking journey. And encouraging you to continue sensing into that energy (e.g. if it's challenging at the moment, remember you are a seeker and a questioner and that's part of the path).

Remember the world didn't start with you in this lifetime. Think of your ancestors - consider where you came from. Embody that to move forward.

Page of Emotions - human-like chin to waist with octopus elements around the waist, forest portal in belly, sky and sun portal in heart shape, and various fish swimming around in foreground and background

Next we got the Page of Emotions.

Watery element. This may be about your character.

Reminding you of your basics. Remember to breathe into your belly and shine with your heart.

Maybe you feel like a shapeshifter or a little alien when stepping into your power, whatever that means. But let that make you unique.

Light shines through water.

5 of Inspiration - various version of the same person floating with different types of mirrors or holes, all reflecting a cloudy sky. All in a desert of sorts.

Next we got a 5 of Inspiration (also wands).

A very reflective place to be.

Notice when we remain curious and when we look away.

This also might be a time of shifting our energy - knowing what we're capable of and shifting into a different aspect of channeling it.

Elements of Fire. This is an active phase of choice.

2 of Inspiration - white rivet texture circles in on a human in winter clothing kneeling behind a telescope and seeming to peer off the the right.

Last we got the 2 of Inspiration.

Maybe we're seeking connection. Maybe we're finally making connection.

This is another 2 like The Priestess. Along with the Page, a sense of "amateur" or "starting out" kind of energy. The feeling of the first act of whatever story this is that you're moving through.

You might need to remind your self of your power because you're at this pivotal moment where you're shining in all your unique-ness. And it's humbling to your ego because you're kind of at the beginning of something again.

Lastly I felt called to pull an overall theme card.

We got Healing.

When I pulled it I felt this feeling of "what if this is all healing?" It might be unconventional, but you can experience and frame all this as a healing process.

Self acceptance and spiritual awakenings can all be framed as a healing process. Some might adapt an achievement based framework to life, but what about healing as a somatic practice - sensing into wholeness.

Thinking about a rose, knowing we go in phases. Sometimes a rose bush is random twigs or super cut back. Some of my neighbors even cover them with plastic bags because of the climate. And then other times they are these beautiful blooming rose flowers and the shrub is lush with rose hips scattered throughout.

Remember your phases. Acknowledge and embrace your seasons.

A suggested journal prompt(that I might even take myself lol): What phase of healing would you be in right now if this is all a healing journey?

This is a very tender read but an encouraging spiritual hand on your shoulder from your Guides. I hope you are taking care <3

We're working with the Visions in the Liminal Space deck - Thank you Sara(h).

***First a reminder that I do individual and group cartomancy readings - they are great for transitional moments, lack of clarity, a spiritual gift for any occasion, or as a regular check-in for your self and your life. All sessions are on sliding scale. Reach out via the website to book, we'd love to channel for you <3***

Now let's get to the reading...

As I was shuffling I got a message to pull "where we've been" and "where we're going"

"Playing God" reversed & "Life is Beautiful Live is Meaningful" from Visions in the Liminal Space deck

Where we've been: Playing God

"Playing God" reversed from Visions in the Liminal Space deck

I recently felt very affirmed by hearing @collectivecartomancy talk about reversed cards because I don't always read reversed cards as reversed but sometimes it feels like there's a meaning behind it. And the "Playing God" card was reversed when I first flipped it over which feels relevant to the energy around it.

Really resonates.

Let's see what the guidebook has to say:

"Resist the joyless impulse to micromanage your life or the lives of others. Nothing meant for you will require being controlled in this way. Attempts to do so are futile by design and lead to loneliness and conflict. Surrender is victory. Surrender to what is, to what wants you and what doesn't."


We might be coming to a place where we're realizing that all of our efforts to create something may have been misguided or not rooted. Kind of like a marionette. No matter how convincing you make the movement and performance - I mean the marionette is literally not grounded. It's floating unless you set it down - it's rooted up in the air. It's almost the opposite of grounded.

Shows you that anything you're trying to control, there's inherently a ceiling to it. Basically if you're playing "all powerful" that has a ceiling to it. When you're playing it, you are not it, you are fractioned off piece of the whole G-d thing.

So that's where we've

Where we're going: Life is Beautiful Life is Meaningful

Wowie x2.

I immediately get this sense of freedom of expression - floating but in a different way - feathers are almost like water in their airy-ness, they just ride the vibe (if there's gravity I guess).

And the levity of speaking freely.

Speaking LOVINGLY.

Let's see what the guidebook says:

"Until whatever great beyond comes to claim us we are here in a life abundant with beauty and meaning for those who dare to see it and make it. Have you ever noticed that it's precisely when hearts are most desperate that these tiny offerings are slipped under the door?"

This just feels like liberation and the balance truly to the previous card. The marionette has a blank stare, it's all controlled, not even standing straight...if you could be limp but standing up Weekend @ Bernie's-style.

And where we're going is freeeee. It floats with and on the breeze.Love letters flying through the sky. That to me feels like collective liberation.

Freedom of speech.

Energetic sovereignty.

Flow & ease.

This obviously isn't the whole picture of what's going on. This feels like a loving message of the macrocosmic pattern of what's present - where we're coming from and what we're moving into.

In a linear sense we're experiencing this stretch that is very uncomfortable. For a moment it helps to zoom out. But don't stay zoomed out for too long...

Today's collective card reading is from the gorgeous whimsical brood of the Dreamscape Oracle, and hits on demons and intuition...

cull card spread in triangle formation - sun bear (at top), the serpent(bottom left), the word(bottom right) next to the remaining deck with Balance upside down

When placing the cards I got a general feeling of this being a diagram, like this is supposed to highlight our human - our selves. It might be we're moving through a confusing time where it still makes sense in a flipped way, and yet we're out of balance - maybe we don't know where to go. Very "surviving" not "thriving" energy. It's like knowing you're a great person but getting stuck, entangled, before who you are can actually be reflected.

"Summon the strength to help steady your spirit listen to your intuition and let it guide you"

Our collective intuition is out of balance - our collective spirituality. We believe that every modality and religion etc is different. Imagine if we believed that everything was one even if what you're doing looks very different from what I'm doing.

I suppose this is a call to check in with your intuition practice - what's your relationship with your intuition these days? Your "highest" self, most loving self?

Next let's tune into The Serpent - getting very Earth-y depths energy...

the serpent card - head of serpent slithering under the roots of tree with hints of skull and smoke illustrated

Yeah...our demons...

What if a demon was manifested by a feeling or a mood? Like if you were the shittiest version of yourself - what if that was being "inhabited" by a demon?

So our demons are maybe our mood or vices...I actually don't even like "vices" because that inherent positions good and bad.

Can it be felt as a sense of balance as opposed to good or bad, just moving one way and another.

I'm also noticing that if a tree is trying to grow and the serpent is eating away at the roots. Both want something righteous for their drives, but how does that align with what you want for you!

the word card - blond angel figure with whisky curved wings floats in clouds holding a quill and paper or tablet of some kind

Lastly, The Word. (I don't think I've ever pulled this card from this deck)

I feel like this is encouraging us to share. That might be the way to integrate - start speaking, start writing down, etc. Right now we're letting our demons prevent us from feeling deeply, expansively, magically.

What's your practice of journaling or what practice do you have of getting thoughts out of your head even if it's speaking into a voice note? How are you getting thoughts out of your body? How are you physically processing your stories and experiences?

Remember a novel isn't dictated straight from the first draft, they are written and re-written and printed and re-printed, etc.


There's an imbalance

You're stuck in your demons


Simple as that, but might not be easy.

You are worth slowing down and taking time out of your days to process and digest to create space.

A SIMPLE MODELED SUGGESTION: attach a very short journaling check in to the beginning or ending of some daily or regular activity (like going to the gym, right before bed, on your lunch break, etc) and set a timer for 3 minutes for answering a question like how am I feeling? or what's present for me today? or treat the time like a private uninterrupted share of any kind I personally benefit from 10-20minutes of journaling with my meditation practice. You can make it look ANY WAY you want it to look. The entire point of this is to check in, not to change. Over time you might notice patterns and maybe feel differently which might offer up new understandings and ideas - let any "fixing" come naturally and you'd be amazing by a simple practice of checking in. <3
