I figured a new month is a great time to start the Fool's Journey - no matter how well you think you know the cards, there is ALWAYS something new to learn. I will be using the Vice Versa Tarot which is based on the RWS decks and has the added appeal of a different side to add to the meanings.
With this deck the original side is called This Side and the added side is called That Side. There is no good side or bad side or right side and reverse side. It simply another aspect of the card.
To start the journey is to start with the 0 - The Fool which will symbolize our self, setting out on a new adventure. We start as the Fool and move our way through the Major Arcana cards, learning more about ourselves and how we follow our path and our purpose.
This Side: We have a blind young man standing on the edge of a precipice at sunset. His attitude is serene because his inner sight is telling him all is well. He seems to be coming from a desert type area, dry and mountainous and yet he has made it this far alone. He is bold and trusts the inherent goodness of the world to keep him safe.
In a reading: The Fool symbolizes the leap of faith. Not always doing what others might consider rational or logical. The leap is what matters most, that start of something. There are many experiences to be had and the Fool follows them in a most serendipitous way. Everything in his path adds to his wisdom. Be bold and trust yourself and the Universe to keep you safe as you start your adventure.
That Side: The Fool is leaving a barren land for a land green and welcoming. The journey looks easier once he gets down from the high cliff top. Stars shine down on him showing us that he isn't alone at all. His dog, faithful companion is with him, watching over him.
In a reading: Something good is coming and where you are heading is better than where you are. Trust yourself, your instincts, that gut feeling, intuition and let them guide you. Keep an eye out for signs and synchronicities that will help you along the way. Even the smallest of incidents can change your path in the best of ways if we are only paying attention to what goes on around us.

Spirit of Place
Today my spirit of place is unexpected rain making the commute terrifying lol
BUT this is a good thing as the earth needed it. **
The Spirit of Place is there to help you through the tough places you find yourself. Every thing has an essence and when it arrives in your reading it is asking you to find the essence of your struggle there. **
The answer to your challenges are in the overarching theme of the circumstances. Are you struggling? Then relax and let go of the need to control. **
Once you find the essential truth underlying your questions the Spirit of Place helps you name it and face it.
Be true to your heart...your greatest power is your authenticity!

A perfect card for a Mindfulness reminder! 🙏🌱🌼🌍
Wizard of Awareness
Mindfulness is about being observant and staying in a neutral frame of being while things go on around you. This applies to your inner environment too. **
By observing your inner thoughts instead of reacting to them you will have the capacity to see clearly without opinion. **
Things will constantly shift and change and this card is a reminder to stop defining or limiting your experiences. It is all good. All learning experiences. **
Let go of the need to control and let things be. They will unfold around you like the beautiful miracles that they are. **

I LOVE Full Moon energy - even if it keeps me awake at night. And the Synchronicity of drawing this card on the Full Moon is awesome... and it is a gorgeous card too.
Full Moon Enchanted Map Oracle Draw
GOOSEBUMPS when synchronicity happens. And it's been happening like crazy lately!
I asked how best to use that lovely electric blue Full Moon energy and pulled Moonlight.
Your intuition allows you to see beyond the mundane. Use it!!
Trust your intuition even if it leads you to places that don't feel logical, your hunches are right. Dont second guess yourself!!
The language of intuition is a symbolic one. It comes with hunches, gut feelings, that tingling of the senses. Follow those signs!! Once you open yourself up to seeing the coincidences and synchronicities THEY ARE EVERYWHERE

Going to need this today. My Dad's in the hospital with seizures and possible aneurysm, any prayers his way would be greatly appreciated ❤❤ (and since I am posting this a day late, my dad seems to be stable, they are waiting cat scan results and he does have pneumonia which he has been ignoring, stubborn man - thank you for your prayers)
This card is telling you that you have the strength to accomplish even the most daunting tasks. You have the power of the Universe to draw on and nothing can move you off course now.
Have courage! The strength you need is yours and you can do anything!

The Vice Versa Tarot Deck
I spent literally all of yesterday studying this deck and I love it. The cards are based on the RWS images but they add so much more to them. One side shows the usual scene but when you flip it over it shows a second scene, not a dark or reverse side, just a different aspect of the original scene.
I quite like the art, which is well balanced with symbols and colors and people. Adding the flip side really does open up readings and gives me a lot more to look at and think about. Another thing I love is that the Major cards actually show symbols and items from other cards that come before them or sit above/below them when they are set into 3 rows of 7 cards. (see below and please ignore my desk mess, I was too excited to tidy up)
The Court cards are slightly different in that instead of showing 2 sides or aspects, it shows the Outer Self and Inner Self, again not reversals or dark and light, just a different aspect which I absolutely love.
I have been thinking about how awesome it would be for someone to create a virtual reality type of app for the Tarot deck, one that you could actually STEP INTO and walk around in, explore the various bits of the cards, and while this deck isn't in VR, it does give that feeling of seeing more that is there.
There was another deck, similar to this one, The After Tarot Kit, which shows action that may have happened AFTER the front side image, but that one didn't feel as "at home," as this one did. I will probably still get that one since *HELLO, CARD COLLECTOR* but I am already loving how the Vice Versa Deck feels in my hands.

Metamorphosis and Balancing Act
You are in the process of a deep and beautiful change! But if you are to transform, some things need to be let go of.
Letting go is never easy, especially if it has been a part of us for a long time. But you will need to part with old and unnecessary ideas and habits in order to embrace the new dreams.
There will be some loss but what you will gain is something amazing!
You are calm within, no matter how chaotic things are outside. 💗❤
There are going to be times when everything feels straight up nuts. That is when you need to look closely at what needs to be balanced to restore equilibrium. Choose harmony, things that flow. Let go of things that no longer serve you. Then you will have a stable, balanced and level path.
I hope you are all having a great weekend and doing new and wonderful things!!

Enchanted Map Oracle - Intention
Your Clear Intentions Have The Power To Change Your World
Right now the Universe is say YES you are totally hitting the mark right now. You have got that energetic, positive feeling that all is RIGHT and it is.
When you are on the right path everything will fall into place. Have you ever noticed that when you are doing what you should be doing, you just feel this amazing and positive energy. Like Life and the Universe are giving you a super high-five! Just as when you wander off course or kind of lose your path, everything gets heavy and murky.
You are a co-creator and the intentions you set are ready to be fulfilled.
Send your intentions, clear and powerful, out into the Universe and watch the magic happen.

Well. First glance and this just looks... sad.
I was feeling off yesterday, I can usually tell when my energy is off because everything attached to it just doesn't work right. I love how I can see that and understand why it feels off, but then I have to work on finding why it is OFF.
So, I was thinking about that when I pulled the Sad Embrace. I really didn't want to see anything sad today. You may be entering into a period where loss is a theme. Perhaps you’re having to let go of a long-cherished dream. If so, take heart, for this ending may have been for your highest good. A better and more powerful dream will be realized in your life if you can accept the loss. Growth is always assured. Whatever the loss—however great it is—let go, and experience your feelings so that you may soon see what beauty lies ahead.
Well, then. I needed some back up on that one, so I pulled another card and got Magic Stream. Which just looks so lovely, doesn't it?
Every experience you have seems to have its own life story however, there is danger in seeing events as separate from one another, since in fact they are all part of a continuity and a greater evolution.
Your experiences filter through the whole world, one leading into another, inform- ing and influencing still more. Inspiration, invention, and revelations rarely come to just one person. The collective awareness is a shared storehouse of potential. When you remember you’re part of the fluid continuity of life, you become a channel for great inspiration. Allow the magic to flow through you and carry your dreams into reality. Your success will benefit many.
I LOVE that reminder. And it goes with the book I am reading, Sidewalk Oracles too. I also tend to pull one Tarot card along with the Oracle as they have a knack of illuminating the lessons. So, I pulled.... the 8 of freeking swords. (not going to lie, I first drew the 10 of swords and just wasn't having it! I tried again and got the 8, OK, YES I HEAR YOU UNIVERSE)
Back to that overall sad feeling I got up at the start.
8 of Swords
Being unsure, lack of direction, doubting myself, feeling trapped and limited.
Yes and yes. I am pretty sure my ego was getting in the way yesterday, not by much, I am pretty good at keeping that at bay, but it did peep it's head up yesterday. I am thinking THAT is what I need to say goodbye too. But I am open to looking for more that needs to be gone. I also need to remember that we all float in the same stream and there is so much beauty there to choose from. I don't need EGO around when I can dive into that lovely storehouse of everything.
And the 8 of swords reminds me of that as well. When I let go of myself EGO, and trust that Universal Stream, I won't feel that doubt and limitation.
So, maybe this draw wasn't as sad as I first thought and I probably could have kept that 10 of swords too, since it has the same overall idea. And you cannot fool the Universe by drawing more cards, it will keep giving you the cards you need, even if you don't like it.

THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT CONCEPT. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!
Ok, that was loud but I needed your attention. The Gentle Gardener is a reminder that everything, your thoughts, beliefs, feelings, create the reality around you.
What you send out into the world is what is reflected back. It reminds me of when I was studying Huna, the idea that all our thoughts are like strings flying about and if we are not careful those strings can become tangled badly.
Be aware of all those thoughts flying. What are their qualities? Are they necessary? Are they positive and kind? With so much negativity in the world, be sure to counter that with positive thoughts and actions.
Water the good seeds. Stay positive. Watch the world transform around you!
I pulled the Hierophant and honestly I never really liked this card until recently. I had to let go of the religious heebie jeebie overtones the card held for me. I see it now as just a conduit. Someone to pass along ideas, thoughts, teachings. We all need a teacher just as we all will teach others. I think this card, paired with The Gentle Gardener, is telling me to find a teacher to help me aim my thoughts where they need to go.

Wild Unknown Animal Spirit
My intuition led me to pull a card from this lovely deck and I hope it helps anyone feeling lost or restless in the mind ☆☆
The Dragonfly is the symbol of the mind, moving, shifting and changing. When this card appears look at the quality of your mind and perceptions. ☆☆
Restless or still. Dreamy or clear. Sometimes it is hard to see whats going on in our heads. Dragonfly says calm the mind. Let the light of wisdom shine for you. ☆☆
In balance : clear seeing and joyful
Out of balance : monkey mind, cannot concentrate
To balance : focus on your breath. Stay mindful and calm
* blessings and namaste*

Be teachable!! Lessons are all around us and we need to be open to hearing them!
Wisdom comes from participating in life, not just reading about it and now is the time to go out and seek the teachers who have the information you need.
Also, look for the unexpected teachers and the unfamiliar lessons as they can illuminate the things you didnt even know you needed!
Keep an open mind and heart and see the teachable moments everywhere!!
