_____________________________________

 

We understand that extended online sessions can be exhausting, which is why our initial seven classes, taught by Theresa Reed, are intentionally capped at 30 minutes each. Our aim is to foster a learning environment where knowledge is absorbed without feeling overwhelming. These concise, bite-sized lessons are expertly crafted to equip you with the foundational skills needed to confidently interpret an astrology chart. As you progress, we’ll gently extend classes 8-12 by an additional 15 minutes. This allows our remaining classes and guest teachers to seamlessly integrate the core principles from lessons 1-7, enhancing your learning experience.

Classes begin in May 2024 and run through October 2024 with classes 1-9 taught by Theresa Reed. Link to class recording will be available 24 hours after each class.

 

Class One: First Steps

Date: Tuesday, May 28

Time: 6PM Pacific/9PM Eastern

In this intro workshop, we’ll go over the key elements in the kit so you can gain a basic understanding of how it works (and all the possibilities).

What You Will Learn

• What’s in the box. Find out what’s included and why.
• How to begin using the tools, even if you don’t understand astrology.

_____________________________________

Class Two: Zodiac Signs

Date: Tuesday, June 4. Mercury ☌ Jupiter, Sun ☌ Venus.

Time: 6PM Pacific/9PM Eastern

In this workshop, we’ll dive deep into the zodiac signs. Learn about elements, qualities, planetary rulership, and keywords. This foundational class will help you understand how the energies of each zodiac sign create nuances in chart interpretation.

What You Will Learn

  • The Elements: learn how earth, air, fire, and water affect each sign’s personal signature.
  • The Qualities: each sign is also cardinal, fixed, or mutable. When you combine this with the element, you quickly see why no two earth signs (or other elements) are the same.
  • Planetary Rulership: connect the planets to each sign.
  • Keywords will help you quickly interpret for each sign.

__________________________________________________

Class Three: The Planets

Date: Tuesday, June 25. Moon enters Pisces.

Time: 6PM Pacific/9PM Eastern

You’re more than your Sun sign. Each planet lines up into a different sign when you’re born. For example, the Moon rules your emotional life while Mercury shows how you think. This is why you might share the same birthday with someone but feel like completely different people (you are!).

What You Will Learn

• What role each planet plays in your astrology chart.
• What Chiron and the Nodes are – and what they have to say about fate.

__________________________________________________

Class Four: The Houses

Date: Tuesday, July 16. Moon enters Pisces.

Time: 6PM Pacific/9PM Eastern

The astrological chart is divided into twelve sections, like a pie. Each slice is associated with a different aspect of your life. In this class, we’ll overview each house – and what it means when a planet lands there as well as how to interpret an “empty” house.

What You Will Learn

• You’ll understand what each house contains.
• Learn about so-called “empty houses” and how to interpret them.

___________________________________________________

Class Five: The Big Three and The Four Cardinal Points

Date: Tuesday, July 30. Venus ▵ Chiron. Moon enters Cancer.

Time: 6PM Pacific/9PM Eastern

What’s your “big three?” That’s a common question amongst astrologers. The “big three” consists of your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant. In this class, we’ll discuss how this trio can be used to describe your personality. The Cardinal Points are also covered, which are the four main points on the wheel.

What You Will Learn

• The big three – the main components of chart interpretation.
• Why the Cardinal Points are the most important spokes on the horoscope wheel.

__________________________________________________

Class Six: Aspects

Date: Tuesday, August 6. Mercury in Retrograde.

Time: 6PM Pacific/9PM Eastern

You don’t have to be a geometry whiz to understand the aspects. In fact, The Living Astrology Chart makes it easier than ever to figure out these important angles! This class will teach you the basics on conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.

What You Will Learn

• You’ll discover how the aspects impact the planets – and you.
• Use the Living Astrology Chart to “see” the aspects come to life.

_________________________________________________

Class Seven: Transits

Date: Tuesday, August 27. Venus ▵ Uranus.

Time: 6PM Pacific/9PM Eastern

Transits indicate the current “weather pattern” in the cosmos. As you lay the planetary pieces around the cloth on the Living Astrology Chart, you can determine what’s happening right now in the skies – and how that might impact you. Transits are one of the most useful tools in predictive astrology.

What You Will Learn

• Learn what transits of the main planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) impact your chart.

• Get familiar with the basics of predictive astrology.

Welcome to the Ofrenda Oracle, inspired by the celebration honoring the Beloved Dead during Dia de los Muertos – Day of the Dead and birthed by 3 artists, Carrie Paris (Relative Tarot, the Beloved Dead, and the Sirens’ Song), Nancy Hendrickson (Ancestral Tarot, and the Ancestral Grimoire), and graphic artist Angelica Castro.

The Ofrenda Project has been a labor of love, nearly two years in the making. The initial inspiration came from San Diego’s close association with Mexico and the yearly celebration of the Dead that runs October through the first days of November.  From those vivid images and joyful celebrations came the idea for this kit of colorful cards.

The Ofrenda Oracle includes two, 60-card decks (bridge and mini size), designed to be read as an oracle. Both decks are nested with a full color, 90-page guidebook in a sturdy box with secure magnetic opener. In addition, cards 1-36 mirror those found in a Lenormand deck, and can be used separate from the remainder of the deck. The additional cards beyond 1-36 depict the vibrant symbolism seen during the Day of the Dead celebration.

 

 

The Lenormand Cards with Extra Man, Woman, Cat and the Ofrenda – Offering Card

Your Ofrenda Oracle comes with two quality decks (bridge & mini size) nested with a 90-page, full color guidebook in a sturdy box with secure magnetic opener.

Rather than start the year on January 1st, I prefer kicking things off with the first full moon of the New Year. I usually begin with clearing a large space in my home, usually on my office floor, and a jar of very colorful pens that help me highlight and fill in my planners (yes, I have three) with goals and priorities that are supported by a lunar calendar. While I don’t always swing it, I try my best to see that my projects and schedule work in tandem with the eight phases of the moon and when I’m really on top of things I avoid making plans when the moon is void of course.

Tonight’s full moon is in the sensitive sign of Cancer making it not only ideal for divining, but also for activating and planning heartfelt work that supports the idea that including our emotional needs in our plans makes for happy outcomes. In order to maintain this focus I’ve created a Look Ahead casting sheet that features the twelve full moons of 2017. The aim is to have each full moon serve as snapshot reminders of what lies ahead. It’s also during the full moon that my projects become illuminated and reveal their greatest potential.

I invite you to give this casting sheet a try. It’s really very easy and just about any casting tool or deck of cards can be included. For this particular sheet I’m using the Magpie Oracle Keepsake Box. Here’s how it works:

I’ve always been fascinated with the many names people have given to the moon. For this casting sheet I’ve applied names assigned by Native American tribes, though you can customize your sheet by adding your own.

Once you’ve printed your casting sheet, write on the central moon image what it is you hope to achieve in 2017. Next, settle in and revisit what you wrote. Imagine how you would feel if and when you achieved your goals. From that perspective randomly select one to three charms for each full moon on your sheet.

Following are sample questions you can apply to your divination, though I encourage you to create questions that put you in direct alignment with your personal plans.

Once you finish the divination take a photo of it and keep the image on one of your devices as a screen saver. This way you can keep track of your progress.

Sample Questions

 

  • January 12, Wolf Moon in Cancer: What action will create security in my home, family and community?
  • February 11, Snow Moon in Leo: How can I best lead the way towards achieving my goals?
  • March 12, Worm Moon in Virgo: What is the order needed for manifesting my desired results?
  • April 11, Pink Moon in Libra: What is the harmonious outcome that wants my attention?
  • May 10, Flower Moon in Scorpio: What is ready to be renewed?
  • June 9, Strawberry Moon in Sagittarius: How can I best move ahead with my adventure?
  • July 9, Buck Moon in Capricorn: What aspect of my long term goal wants my attention?
  • August 7, Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius: How can I stay open-minded to new possibilities when they are presented?
  • September 6, Harvest Moon in Pisces: What is the most imaginative approach I can take?
  • October 5, Hunters Moon in Aries: What’s my niche/brand/signature?
  • November 4, Beaver Moon in Taurus: What am I ready to give the works to?
  • December 3, Cold Moon in Gemini: How can I best adapt to changes coming my way?

Recognizing the Signs:

Casting with Nature and the Everyday

Being present with the everyday is the first step in recognizing the signs that are delivered to us daily. When we consciously  set out to be receptive to what nature and life are communicating then we are also setting the stage for understanding what the signs are communicating. Ever have a feather land at your feet, found a penny or discovered letters in the drifting clouds? Viewing these elements and more reveal the possibility that perhaps Life is casting messages to us everyday. The beauty is when we reply with our own casting kits that are supported and influenced by our awakened experience.

Bonus Casting Class

with Carrie Paris

 

In this bonus class we will put what we have learned to the test by using casting techniques over a number of casting sheets designed specifically for this series. This is your opportunity to ask questions and do longer sample readings.

After a long hiatus the Lenormand Revolution is BACK and better than ever!

This poker size edition featuring images from the French and American Revolution is printed on a luxurious card stock that reads and feels like butter, yet is durable to the core. It boasts 36 traditional cards plus two additional Lady, Gent and Child cards and the interchangeable Stork that we call La Revolution; a card that nods to upheaval and revolutionary changes.

Included is a satin Grand Tableau reading cloth featuring keywords to get you started. This cloth can also double as a casting cloth so we’ve added a silver PEACE charm to each deck. Cast it over your cards, cloth, or both. Wherever it lands reveals where peace and resolution want your attention.

Your deck comes wrapped in a sturdy tuck box and nests in a ruby red organza bag with your charm, reading cloth and added surprise for early-bird orders. Get one while they’re in stock and Viva la Revolution!

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.”  ―Vern McLellan

 

This month’s casting calendar has a simple aim– to connect you with your vision. It begins by asking you to invite your highest vision into 2015 so that you can make lasting changes.

JAN 2015 Casting Calendar Magpir Oracle

 

Begin by creating a space for divining. Build an area or altar where your highest vision will feel at home and want to land. Invite it in by lighting candles, playing your favorite music, or making sweet offerings. Engage your heart with your spirit and when ready, cast your charms over your casting calendar while asking for your highest vision for 2015 to reveal itself.  This vision bypasses goals of weight loss, a better paying job or abstinence from guilty pleasures, and goes directly to higher guidance.

Instead of seeing a thinner you, your vision might reveal a stronger you, or an aspect of yourself that knows how to feel comfortable in your own skin.  Rather than seeing yourself in a job that pays more, your vision will likely transcend that possibility and reveal a career that’s in alignment with your calling.  In other words, expect the unexpected as higher guidance doesn’t deal in the mundane. Instead, it positions us with our higher purpose.

Take note of where your charms land.  Whatever lands in the center of your sheet represents the vision that wants your attention.  Look for the symbolic message from your charms and ask how you can apply that message to your life. Charge the month of January with what you’ve discovered from your reading. Charms that land on the day’s of the week support and build your vision. Look for a theme or the bigger picture and carry that vision with you.

Extend the divination by asking how you can act as a vehicle for these symbols to express themselves. How will your charms help you sustain your vision and in turn (and this part is key), what support will you be bringing to the vision? How will you sustain it, what will your efforts produce and how will your higher actions change or improve your life? Big questions for a big year! Are you ready to make a change? Then do so with your highest vision as your guide.

To stay connected to my readings I like to take a photo of my casting. I then add that photo to my altar and the screen saver on all my devices. The goal is to have your reading near and at hand in order to keep the vision alive.  Be creative with how you maintain the message from your reading and join me here next month for more casting opportunities that support your highest vision.

Until then dear diviner, may 2015 see you making a meaningful difference in the world. Happy New Year!

If this is your first time to visit my site, welcome! Please detour here if you wish to learn more about casting sheets and the art of casting with the Lenormand Revolution or Magpie Oracle collection. The majority of my posts present casting opportunities, however they are not limited to my products. With a little creativity, just about any divination system will work. Go with the tool that speaks to your heart.

If casting isn’t your thing, randomly select and assign a charm to each day of the week.  Whichever route you choose, pay attention to where your charms land and record your findings directly onto the template, a notebook or with a photo. If more than one charm shares a date on your calendar, view it as an opportunity to try your hand at symbol or card combining.  If your charms bypass a day altogether, I recommend you take that as a day to keep your schedule clear. In other words, simply be.

I’m one of those people who feel nostalgic during the Autumn months. My heart yearns for the Italian side of my family who came to the US from Calabria’s beautiful Mediterranean shores. Like many immigrants, my relatives did what they could to blend into their new culture, and try as they might they never completely masked the one thing that gave them away as Italian–  their overly animated hand gestures.

Apart from cooking, poetry and the language of amore, Italians have turned hand gestures into an art form. You want to tell someone to bugger off? There’s a clear gesture for that, as well as letting someone know you’re frightened, hungry, pissed off and so much more. My favorite is the elegant hand glide that expresses appreciation for something that is made to perfection. Following is a video that offers some excellent examples of what my non-Italian friends call Italian sign language.

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s casting sheet borrows from the unspoken, yet clearly communicated language found in hand gestures. It features hands demonstrating 18 activities that relay a variety of messages. Interspersed between the hands you will find words and punctuation marks that bring you to the truth of the matter. Situated in the four corners are four card suits matched with their corresponding theme, and in the center is a single eye that acts as the focal point for your divination.  Here’s how it works:

Start with a question. The board is set up to answer yes/no questions and also makes clear what’s fact or fiction in your situation.  Once you have your question in mind, take your Magpie Oracle charms and cast them over your sheet, paying close attention to where they land. The charm(s) that land in the eye represent what’s at the core focus of your question. For example if your question is, Will I get a new job, and the Anchor charm from the Magpie Oracle lands in the position of the eye, it could indicate you are in fact bringing into focus (the Eye) a secure position (Anchor). If you’re using the Magpie Oracle II and let’s say, the Noose lands in your focal point then this could suggest something is ready to end before proceeding, or that you’re too hung up on the topic and need to put it to rest once and for all.

Keywords for the Magpie Oracle can be found here and the Magpie Oracle II’s Emblem Elucidator here.  Tips on casting are available in this free handbook.

You may reach a point in your casting when a charm doesn’t land in the position of the Eye.  In order to avoid this I like to preselect a charm before casting so I can have a focus right from the start.  You may also simply like to trust where the charms land.  No charm landing in the position of the Eye could also indicate that the core focus is building.  Use your intuition and go with your immediate hit.

Next, let your focus move out from the focal point of your casting sheet, taking note of where your charms land:

 

  • Fact~Fiction~True~False  =  Charms landing in the fact, fiction, true, false positions indicate what is and isn’t factual about your question or theme.

 

  • !~?~!~?  =  If a charm lands on a question mark it indicates the answer is not yet clear or ready to be revealed.  It might also be suggesting you ask again.  With these I like to pull a tarot or Lenormand card for added clarity.  The exclamation mark suggests you pay extra attention to what that charm symbolizes for you.

 

  • Yes~No = You are also given Yes/No options with each stating a clear-cut answer in regards to your question.

 

  • Heart~Club~Diamond~Spade =  Charms landing in one or all of the four corners demonstrate which area in your life is being activated by your question or situation. Consider it a non issue if a your charms don’t land in a corner. If you find a larger number of charms concentrated in one corner and not another then this is an area that is quite charged.

 

  • Hand Gestures  =  The meaning of the hand gestures depend solely on your intuition. Your definitions will be far more accurate than anything anyone else can give. For example, the Thumbs Up symbol to the right of  your casting sheet can mean, yes, or it’s a go for some, while others might see it as a sign for hitching a ride. Like I always say, your definition will always be best so trust in your first hit. It’s usually right!

 

As always, grazie mille and may your future follow your highest wishes.
