PDR Week Four

For this weeks reading i chose to ask "What will happen if i get this job?". The three cards i drew were - 8 of coins(rx) - Page of swords - The Hierophant(rx). Finance==> i think first off the 8 is telling me that things will stay the same financially, at least for now. So it may take a bit longer to build up again than what i expect, but i should'nt allow this for me to have a negative attitude at work. Rather carry on learning and working rather let things become stagnant. Environment==> the keywords in the LWB for the page say, "Beware of spies". What i think this card is trying to tell me is that people may try manipulate or take advantage of me especially in the work environment based on the fact im new and dont have a ideal view of the system yet. Taking it in another direction, this card may be telling me that my mental worries may soon be over. Advice==> i shouldnt let myself become tied down by limited thinking, or approaches to situations. Mabye whats its saying is i shouldnt take this job and just be happy with what i have, try to be flexible and adapt to the surroundings so that i can grow again. Thanks for taking the time to read this and any comments are appreciated. This reading is in anticipation of a new job prospect. Hold thumbs!

Reflection on The Moon

To me this is one of the most beautifull cards in the deck. The mixed blues of the moon in the backround, with the two crows i particulary striking. The two keywords printed on the bottom of the card fit in very well with the overall meaning and atmosphere projected. As is known with the moon, this card tells of a land, or time of madness and absolute bliss, the best parts of ourselves and the energies around us. I think the two crows in the picture represent the two pillars normally seen in other decks like the Rider-waite. And the single star in the left corner, the destination or objective. The basic meaning given to this card of the deck, follows very closely with many others suggesting dark thoughts or unparalleled vision. There is also a very calming feel to the card, if i look at it for too long i feel myself drifting away.

PDR Reading Week Three

This is my reading for Week Three. The question i chose for this weeks reading was, " How successfull will my year be?" I drew 5 cards in the following positions: card one - Current situation. Card 2 - advice to the situation. Card 3 - Finances. Card 4 - Work. Card 5 - Love. The cards i drew were, 9 of swords - The Tower - 9 of coins(rx) - Justice(rx) - The High priestess(rx). This was an interesting reading for me because it showed me alot of the unexpected. With the 9 of swords, i dont think this card in its position can be very good lol. It tells me im currently going through a lot of turmoil, some of it real, some not. With this card, it also tells me of a need to express power and intellect with reason above all. Which is very true because this year i have taken a very different mental attitude towards life. What the Tower shows me with my new view of life so to speak, its definately time to start making some serious changes and realize that time waits for no one. Leave behind what i know and stop making excuses to move forward. Mabye even be aggressive and focus on what was also mentioned earlier. As things stand, things cant better if i do nothing, only stay the same or get worse. Now with deck the 9 of coins in this position, actually speaks of wealth. Just mabye not gained in the best of ways. I hope i dont get involved with animal smuggling or something! Work wise, even though Justice is reversed, it says to me that things will be moving along nicely i just may come across one or two important decisions where which i may regret later, or be unable to make a proper decision at all. What the High Priestess tells me is that things could get very interesting in my current relationship, or perhaps even someone from my past coming back? Mabye ill finally be able find out what eating her and she has'nt said anything. Thats what i got from my reading for this week. Ive put the images up for all to see. I hope they're clear enough for you guys!

Anger management

From time to time i have noticed that i can have a temper. Not violent
or anythimg but lose my cool over the small things. Like when a friend
lets you down. Or when i lost my ipod. Or when it becomes so
difficult to post pictures on a blog! I decided to ask the cards what
should i most remember in times like these. The first card i drew was
the 8 of wandsrx. What i feel this card is telling me is that i dont
allow myself to act properly when these situations arise. I need to be
more focused in my actions i take. The second card was the Ace of
cups. Perhaps this card is trying to let me know victi need to be in a
clear state of thinking when these situations arise. Dont let any
negative emotions grab hold of me and let anger pulle. Lastly was the
hanged man. I decide to stay with the natural meaning and mabye take
the time to reflect on whats most important . Mabye even try something
different. I wonder if anyone else feels the same way and could give
some advice. Im not trying to say i freak out over the smallest thing.
But need to learn to control myself when i feel upset or annoyed at
something. Im to a happy place... Happy place! Im still not able to
post pictures on here but am working on it. You see its things like
that. Ive done everything blogspot asked to email them pictures but
still nothing. Happy place, happy place. I think the crows magick
cards are also very usefull for meditation on things like this. Thanks
for reading about my current dilemma.

Reading regarding with sale of house

I done a reading this afternoon regarding the sale of my house. Using
the crows magick tarot i drew three cards in the following positions.
Card one=> why are we selling the house. Card two=> will the sale be
successfull. Card three=> advice to the question. 1.) page
of coins: i believe this card is emphasizing our current financial
situation, as ve bonds have skyrocketed in our area.
2.) four of wands: i believe this card is indicating that
our sale will be successfull and will give the financial security to
secure a new house for the future. 3.) two of
wands (rx): we have to decide if we are going to sell the house. The
longer we wait the less chance of moving out of this situation.
This reading is not part of the PDR but is important in
that we have been offered decent prices for the house and need to act
on them soon. With the page, four and two i see a good chance of
things going well in the immediate future. The animal spirit in the
cards had a reassuring aspect despite the dark physicallity of the

Moved post from AT... IV The Emperor

The first words that come to my mind when i think of the emperor are stability, power and control. With the crows magick tarot, and the owl depicted on the card i think this is an reasonable assumption. I think this can also be a card symbolizing great independance and discipline through motivation and self control. Not independance in the solitary aspect, but rather in the confidence of knowing. An owl in the animal world is sometimes seen as a "King of birds" so when used as the emperor card i think it fits nicely into the persona. And just the the emperor, the owl can also be cunning, aggressive and perhaps even dominant, as with the picture on the card, the claws are extended perhaps showing its desire to intimidate or even control. And through this i see mabye even an arrogance through over confidence and unwillingness to co-operate. When using this deck, if the emperor comes up in a reading, i normally take it as a strong message from a very strong card. Aries is the only zodiac symbol on this card whereas on some of the others there can be three. And in this i think it emphasises the individuality of the emperor and the owl. A figure respected and revered.

Moved posts from AT... week 1.

Got a blog set up so I'm first moving posts from AT if anyone hasn't followed along.
I'm using Crow's Magick for my study.

The first reading of this project and i an very excited. For the first reading my question was "How can i best achieve my goal this month". Using the Celtic Cross spread i pulled the cards as follows.(using crows magick tarot. Card 1 - 8 of wands. Position - current living environment. Im currently living a very fast paced lifestyle and might need to slow down abit. Take some to get facts straight. Card 2 - the chariot. Position -immediate obstacles. I think its telling me i need to get my priorities in order. Nothing will happen if i dont learn how to balance what i need and what i want. Card 3 - page of swords. Position - the best that can be accomplished at this time. I think this card is tryin to tell me to take things with a pinch of salt. Dont be to quick to make decisions i might later regret. Card 4 - 4 of swords. Position - effects of distant past. The last few months have been tryin and mabye some rest and time to focus is needed. Card 5 - ace of coins(RX). Position - recent past. Focusing to much on things that are not really important and not enough time on things that are. Card 6 - queen of cups. Position - future influence. It might be time to turn to someone who i know can help. Or mabye a little more devotion is required on my part. Card 7 - the emperor. Position - the questioner. Things are upside down at the moment and i need to bring some order and control. Card 8 - the hermit(RX). Position - how others see you. I may be wrong but i see this card as telling me others think i need to get out more and start embracing life. Card 9 - 10 of coins(RX). Position - hopes and fears. Not taking enough risks. Be bold and adventurous. Card 10 - 7 of coins. Position - likely outcome. Things look good if i stay focused and concentrate on my goal at hand. Thats just a few thoughts on my side. Anyone else got any ideas? Thanks.
