May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand”

Irish Blessing

Irish Luck Charm

March is the month that brings us the Day of the Festival of Saint Patrick and as the saying goes, everyone is Irish on March 17th.  So let’s set the mood for this month’s casting calendar by putting on some Irish music and casting our Magpie Oracle charms over the following sheet that invokes the luck of the Irish in body, mind, hart and spirit.  Here’s how it works:

Cast or assign a charm or Lenormand card to each day of the week.  Everyday on this calendar promotes the idea that adding a little more luck and good fortune to your life-focus builds a stronger bond with Fate and community. Take note of where your charms land and combine their meaning with the provided starter sentences.

Magpie Oracle keywords can be found here.

A free, printable Lenormand deck can be found here, and here.

Magpie Oracle March 2014 Casting Calendar

My friend and Lenormand superstar, Malkiel Rouven Dietrich of Berlin brought this spread to my attention through his useful teaching videos on Youtube. At the beginning of each month, Malkiel selects Lenormand cards and pairs them to each day of the month. This not only provides a quick daily forecast, but also develops a predictive relationship with the cards, or in my case, charms. Each month I’ll post a calendar casting sheet that works along the same lines as Malkiel’s Lenormand forecast calendar. However rather than pulling cards, I invite you to cast 31 of your Magpie Oracle charms over the provided sheet. Make sure you have a charm paired with each day of the month. For easy reference, note your charm’s name and any keywords that come to mind on the calendar. The remaining five charms can be viewed as the month’s overall theme, which I like to make note of at the top of my calendar. Revisit your calendar often to track the progress of your predictions.

Let’s Divine a Magical 2019 into Existence!

 

We wake up every New Year’s Day hardening our resolve to be richer, healthier, more successful and appealing. And yet, this traditional approach to manifest our perceived Best Self has an alarmingly low success rate. Why? It speaks mostly to the Muggle mindset and so lacks inspired direction and magical follow through.  This is why Tina Hardt and I have created the True North Oracle, a kit that delivers a spellbinding plan for lasting results.

Welcome to the True North Oracle, an inner compass kit crafted to help you divine an unswerving course to a True and fully-realized You. This oracle has been designed to take you on a guided journey during which deep, revelatory readings will lead you exactly where your heart is ready to go.

Included with your kit is the True North Oracle workshop held on the first New Moon of the New Year. In this gathering, Tina and I will help you identify and align with your inner compass so you can chart your own course to success.

We understand the challenges and importance of staying on track, and for this reason you are invited to the private True North Oracle FaceBook group. Here we will make ourselves available for supporting you through your magical goals. We will also include added bonus casting sheets and more to be announced. Can’t make the live workshop? No problem. A recording of the class will be available 24 hours after the live class. Inside of your take-it-anywhere, pocket or purse-sized tin are some whopping components.

We hope you can join us on this momentous adventure!

 

What’s inside the kit, you Ask. Oh so much!

 

  • A bridge-sized deck of 54 True North Oracle cards
  • Over 70 casting charms charged with the task of opening channels and activating intentions
  • An eight-sided compass die
  • A set of (very cool) purple dice that determine the number of cards to work with

The sun watches all I do,

but the moon knows all my secrets.

– J.M. Wonderland

 

In North America on the morning of February 26, 1979, day turned into night, birds stopped singing and nocturnal animals anxiously stirred. What caused this strange behavior? A total solar eclipse, which on August 21, 2017 will happen again.

This eclipse is being touted as the Great American Eclipse as it will visibly move across a narrow path of land stretching from the Oregon Coast to South Carolina’s coast with the maximum duration point taking place near Hopkinsville, Kentucky.

It’s hard to ignore the excited esoteric chatter surrounding this eclipse and while most of it is useful, a lot of it just feels overwhelming and fatal. Personally I view total eclipses as opportunities to reboot and clear shadow patterns in order to shed new light on what I’m ready to fully engage with and see. For this divination I’m choosing casting as my go-to means though any divination system will do.

A total solar eclipse can be viewed in five phases and existing within each phase is an opportunity to see what might be hiding in the shadowy actions that prevent us from fully showing up. The word totality is key here as it reminds us to expose what we’re ready to totally look at and change. For this divination I recommend randomly selecting one to three charms (cards work too) for each of the five positions. In addition, use the following petition and questions to guide the way. The goal is to make contact with a shadow pattern, expose where it might be hiding or eating away at your life, and then reboot a life that’s no longer aligning with said pattern’s agenda.

While useful, it isn’t necessary to print the provided casting sheet. You can make your own by creating a space with five casting positions. 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 Magpie Oracle. 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. And now, back to casting.

 

Print. Cast. Divine.

(click here for larger pdf image of casting sheet )

 

Before getting started, Eclipse2017.org is an excellent resource for safely viewing this, and future eclipses. The site also offers the following descriptions for the five phases of the eclipse which inspired the petition and questions for this divination. As always, feel free to customize the casting sheets to fit your needs. May they serve your reboot well.

 

Partial eclipse begins (1st contact)

The Moon starts becoming visible over the Sun’s disk. The Sun looks as if a bite has been taken from it.

Question & Petition (select 1 to 3 charms)

Greetings Lunar Shadow! In your mystery I watch with the eyes of a fair witness as you make first contact with your celestial opposite. The shadow you cast appears to be taking a bite out of the Sun! Help me to see, understand and name the shadow-pattern that consumes momentum and prevents forward motion.

How can I expose and therefore break free from justifying agendas that eat away at my progress?

 

 

Total eclipse begins (2nd contact)

The entire disk of the Sun is covered by the Moon. Observers in the path of the Moon’s umbra may be able to see Baily’s beads and the diamond ring effect, just before totality.

Question & Petition (select 1 to 3 charms)

Dear New Moon, I call to you as you move between the Sun and Earth and cast the darkest part of your shadow, your umbra, over the Sun. Here I stand in preparation for total darkness and watch as your shadow moves across the face of the Earth and ask:

What action can I take to fearlessly reach into the darkest part of my shadow and pull from it insights that inform rather than obscure my soul’s mission on Earth?

 

 

Totality and maximum eclipse

The Moon completely covers the disk of the Sun. Only the Sun’s corona is visible. Latin for crown, the corona is an aura of plasma that surrounds the Sun. This is the most dramatic stage of a total solar eclipse. At this time, the sky goes dark, temperatures can fall, and birds and animals often go quiet.

Question & Petition (select 1 to 3 charms)

Greetings Darkness! I stand tall and look at you with eyes wide open . Even in total darkness I can sense the shadowy crown I’ve placed upon your head. In return you have ruled a light-less path that has concealed, rather than revealed the light of my full purpose. For this reason I ask two questions in one:

How can I totally remove myself from the rule of the Court of Shadow and fully take the lead when driving my destiny?

 

 

Total eclipse ends (3rd contact)

The Moon starts moving away, and the Sun reappears.

Question & Petition (select 1 to 3 charms)

Farewell Darkness and Shadows! In your absence, the warm, energizing light from the Sun reappears! My eyes and spirit adjust to this new light that exposes a clear path for the taking. Receptive, I stand before you and ask:

What first step will illuminate a path that connects my commitment to my purpose?

 

 

 

Partial eclipse ends (4th contact)

The Moon stops overlapping the Sun’s disk. The eclipse ends at this stage in this location.

Question & Petition (select 1 to 3 charms)

Greetings Light! This divination is receiving your bright blessings with recognition and gratitude. I clearly see how taking the sunless path only serves to restrict movement and inhibit initiative. I now move with the intention of serving my passion over my shadow.

How can I best sustain this fire that fuels vitality, drive and focus?

 

 

Once you’ve finished divining, and if possible, keep your reading out and check in with it as needed. A good way to keep your reading alive is by taking a photo of it and save the image as a screen saver for one or all of your devices.

Depending on where you live, the next eclipse that falls on February 10 or 11 is a good time to revisit your divination to see if you have in fact followed through, or need to give your reading a little more time and attention. Continue nurturing your desired outcome by divining with future moon phases and eclipses until you feel you’ve accomplished a reboot.

There is a language, little known,
Lovers claim it as their own.
Its symbols smile upon the land,
Wrought by nature’s wondrous hand;
And in their silent beauty speak,
Of life and joy, to those who seek
For Love Divine and sunny hours
In the language of the flowers.

–The Language of Flowers, London, 1875

Spring is in the air and thanks to a wet winter my yard is blooming with giant snapdragons, California poppies, foxgloves and more. This flourishing show mirrors May’s full moon that’s often called the Flowering Moon. It also gives way to this month’s casting sheet that borrows inspiration from floriography, or the Language of Flowers which is a way of communicating through the use, gifting and arrangement of flowers and plants.

While symbolic meaning has been assigned to flowers for thousands of years, floriography gained popularity with Victorian England as a way for a private Victorian society to voice their feelings without having a word pass their lips. This coded dialogue is still in use and has given rise to many a flower arrangement that profess feelings ranging from passionate love to overwhelming heartbreak.

The following casting sheet incorporates some of the more popular and obscure flower symbols found in a variety of floriographic dictionaries. Each flower covers a topic I hope will bloom an insightful conversation between you and your charms.

Begin by printing out the included casting sheet. For this casting I recommend you randomly select from a charm kit (cards work too!) and assign one to each of the nine position. Magpie Oracle Lenormand charms can be found here, the Keepsake Box here and the latest Seer Charms here. You can also cast your charms directly over the sheet and watch where they land. Do you notice a cluster of charms gathering in one area? This usually indicates an area that’s charged and so requires extra attention. For those “blank” areas where a charm doesn’t land on a position, I usually view as a non issue and so it’s nothing you need to worry about.

Keep your casting simple and use your intuition by going with what you feel most drawn to. Remember, your way is likely to be the best way.

Bloom!

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?

Calling all poets, writers and diviners!  April is National Poetry Month and diviner-poet, Tabitha Dial and I have joined forces to bring you a casting sheet that gives a kick-start to the creative within.

The following Muse Board works as a platform to help you divine with poetry, creative writing, music, art, and more. Many thanks go to Tabitha for being the muse behind The Muse Board and authoring these fine instructions.  Here’s how it works:

Click, Print & Divine

the muse board

Simply gather your oracle and take a moment to calm your mind and prepare to explore your creativity.

Cast your charms, stones, runes or bones onto The Muse Board and follow the prompt under the first piece that catches your eye. If there are too many, reduce the number to one-three and try again.

For example, if the lion, who represents the Strength tarot card in the Tarot Talismans kit lands in the “Celestial” spot, The Muse Board beckons you to play with the idea of a lion in space. Perhaps you’ll want to write a poem or song of the constellation for the sign Leo, or the concept of a lion in an astronaut’s suit tickles your fancy.

Write a brief list of ideas if one doesn’t excite you immediately. Don’t edit. Don’t over-think. Just jot and scribble, because no one has to see your list or your first draft of anything!

When you’re ready to sink into the project The Muse Board offers, again, work without reservation. Flow. If you write, generate words, words, words. Allow yourself to edit later.

Special poetry-inspired prompts:

If a charm, etc lands on:
First Line — Start your project or poem with an image inspired by what landed in/near that spot.
Last Line — End your project or poem with an image inspired by what landed in/near that spot.
Line Break — Consider taking a rest. Or make extra space in your poem. Or think what it means to “break” what landed in/near that spot.

Try this!

Have dice? Use one or two while consulting The Muse Board. One number can indicate how many sentences, or paragraphs you’ll write. The second one could represent the number of words per line for a poem, or the number of characters in your story. Apply dice expectations for your medium, and get rolling. Any type of die will do ya!

Have fun, diviner and check out Tabitha Dial and all of her wonderful offerings here.

I’ve often wondered what it would be like to turn the reading table on the tarot, to have the cards read me rather than it be the other way around.  Would the outcome be different if I sat at the Magician’s table or considered my situation from the Hermit’s mountaintop? I feel it would and in view of this I wanted to create an interactive spread that puts the tarot in the reader’s chair.

In this post you will find a new Magpie Oracle casting sheet followed by 22 audio recordings from the Major Arcana’s point of view. Each recording provides a message from whatever card you divine. For example, if a charm (cards work too) lands on the casting sheet’s Wheel of Fortune card, click on the Wheel of Fortune image found just below the casting sheet. Doing so will take you to an audio recording that offers insights from the Wheel’s perspective as well as the remaining Major Arcana.  If casting isn’t your thing, you can also use these recordings as writing prompts, single card meditations and more. The idea is to approach each card from a new, rather than familiar, vista. Each recording delivers about two minutes of advice and in many cases the cards pose a question thematic of their environment. These questions can be answered by casting additional charms or pulling cards. Here’s how it works…

  • Click and print your casting sheet.
  • Cast your charms over the sheet.
  • Click on the Major Arcana images below this casting sheet to listen to your divination.

 

1 Tarot Talismans Major Arcana Spread

If this is your first time to my site, welcome!  I recommend you visit here before proceeding. In doing so you will be directed to some useful tips on casting with any of the Magpie Oracle or Lenormand products.

While it isn’t always necessary, I like to start this divination with a question. I recommend you build a question that requires an actionable result on your part. For example:

  • What action can I take that will help me better understand __________?
  • What’s the best action for me to take concerning ____________?
  • What can I expect if I ______________?
  • What can I expect if I don’t (as sometimes not doing is an action in itself) _____________?

 

After casting, you might want to write each charm’s title directly onto the casting sheet. This way you can keep referring to your spread after you’ve put your charms away. Once all of your charms are noted and in place, look for any card-to-charm pairings.  An example of this would be when the Fool charm lands in the position of the Fool card on your sheet. For many this match can indicate a charged position. If you discover identical pairings take a moment to decide how you want to apply the double meaning to your current situation. What is it pointing at or suggesting you pay close attention to?

In the event when card and charm are not a match, experiment with creating a dialogue between the two. The same can be applied to more than one charm landing in one position as well as reading several charms in rows, diagonals, corners, etc.  Take some extra time to see how well the charms are getting along in their new environment.  For example, what kind of advice do you think the Emperor would offer to a visiting Devil or vice versa?

To extend the experience click on any of the following images to receive some added insight from the Major Arcana.  Each card will take you to an audio link on Soundcloud.  Take some time to tune into your interactive oracle and when you feel you’ve considered everything, ask yourself:

  • What is the actionable result that’s being presented to me and how will I fulfill it?
  • How will I become a vehicle for my divination and how can I express it in the world?

 

This divination wants you to be creative and follow your intuition’s lead.  In doing so you are building self-trust while strengthening your oracular muscle. As always, stay divine and may the future follow your highest wishes.

UntitledI have been assigned to sit in the Mojave Desert and record what’s known as, the Event which occurs between sunrise and sunset. There are others assigned to my team though we are located in different regions of the World. We stay connected through a hologram projection. While the Solstice isn’t implied, there’s anticipation around witnessing an annual shift in the light.

As I sit in wait, I see a large snake on the horizon and realize that she too is waiting for the event. Upon this realization the sun begins to set and with it I witness the green flash, which in my dream indicates the start of the Event.

I notice that the snake is moving four pieces of the sun within the curves of her body. Each piece is a burning aspect of her body, mind, heart and spirit that seek the light from the Event. I understand that in the moment of the green flash she will offer these aspects of light to the Event in exchange for renewal. End of dream.

Over the years I’ve learned to treat my dreams as I do tarot imagery. Each symbol acts as an important message that’s customized to fit my situation. I make a point to highlight these key elements in my journal and then define them as symbols to live by. After this I conclude with a synopsis of the dream.

 

key elementsAssignment: My purpose.

Mojave: Mojave translates as, beside the water (water to me represents emotion). Near, though detached from emotion.

Team/World locations: Larger community. Like minded community.

Event: A special occasion.

Hologram Connection: Communicating through visual means.

Desert: A vast, arid environment. Clarity. Honesty.

Sunrise/set/Solstice: Celestial influence.

Snake: Transformation.

Green Flash: A rare opportunity/phenomenon. A flash in time energized by the color green (my favorite color).

Four motif: Structure, stability in body, mind, heart and spirit. Totality.

Burning Sun: Vital, sustaining energy. Fuel.

Snake holding/offering the Sun: Supporting the transformational event in the physical. Renewal.

 

synopsisOffer your purpose to your greater community being mindful that you don’t get too emotionally attached to the outcome. Incorporate the celestial movement of the heavens while reporting a clear and honest perspective of what you see. In return you will gain vital energy and stability in body, mind, heart and spirit. Here lies the opportunity for renewal and transformation.

After recording my dream I went to work on understanding it through collage. While adding the fourth sun to canvas, I realized the following image could also work as a casting sheet— one that invites diviners to connect with their transforming light by giving focus to their purpose. Here’s how it works.

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. And now, back to casting.

 

Animal-Reptile-Snake-grayishpngIt’s clear that the above dream points to what I’m aligning with in terms of my purpose. It also nods to a workshop I’m preparing to give called, Embodied Divination, where attendees are taken on a sacred pilgrimage to connect with their creative drive. I’ve been committed to giving structure to my purpose since the Summer Solstice and have made it a daily practice to acknowledge that commitment through outlets that bring it to Earth like art, writing and work.

One of the biggest challenges with staying purpose-focused is learning when and how  to say, Thank you, but no thank you to the onslaught of distractions that interrupt my aim. Are you familiar with this experience? Have you met the multitude of beautiful distractions that pull you away from your vision? You’re not alone.

The goal of this casting sheet is to help you build awareness around what your distractions are preventing you from achieving. Begin by focusing on what your purpose is and then make a mental list of the distractions that lead you astray from that purpose. Locate and enlist the part of yourself that knows how to resist interruptions. Let’s get started.


 

Randomly select four Magpie Oracle charms or divination cards for each of the following categories. You may also cast your charms over the casting sheet. Where they land will determine the divination. Follow their lead.

bodyCharm 1: This is what will bring structure to the physical aspect of my purpose.

Charm 2: This is the distraction I am saying no to in my physical environment.

Charm 3: This is what I will gain in the physical from saying, Thank you, but no thank you.

Charm 4: This is the vital transformation that’s burning to happen in my physical environment when I am distraction free.

 

mindCharm 1: This is what will bring structure to the mental aspect of my purpose.

Charm 2: This is the mental distraction I am saying no to.

Charm 3: This is the mental gain I will experience from saying, Thank you, but no thank you.

Charm 4: This is the vital transformation that’s burning to happen in my mind when I am distraction free.

 

heartCharm 1: This is what will bring structure to the emotional aspect of my purpose.

Charm 2: This is the emotional distraction I am saying no to.

Charm 3: This is the emotional gain I will experience from saying, Thank you, but no thank you.

Charm 4: This is the vital transformation that’s burning to happen in my heart when I am distraction free.

 

spiritCharm 1: This is what will bring structure to the spiritual aspect of my purpose.

Charm 2: This is the spiritual distraction I am saying no to.

Charm 3: This is the spiritual gain I will experience from saying, Thank you, but no thank you.

Charm 4: This is the vital transformation that’s burning to happen in my spirit when I am distraction free.

As always, may your future follow your highest wishes. Merry Solstice, Diviner!
