Monday Musings 5.24.21

Greetings Tarot Tots.

Today I write from you from my cozy home in the woods. It’s raining and my pets are running amok around my home. It’s nice to have these little friends who visit me all day long when I’m home. Some day I will have to show some pictures of these little guys. If you follow me on TikTok (@VyvyanWormwood) you may have seen a couple of them actually. My very first TikTok video was of my familiar spirit, Anise. Anise was/is my first pet in my adult life. I had some hamsters before but I didn’t count them because those were more a sharing pet.

Anise is my familiar. He always is there when something is going on. He is curious and protective. For example, when I am taking a drink from a cup or bottle or what have you, he often bumps the bottom of the container you are drinking from to “save” you from drowning. He once honestly ended up *causing* me to choke instead of saving me. But he has saved me many times. He loves to be around when I am doing magic of any sort. He is the alpha of the animals we have in the house. He is very large, and we think that he might be part Maine Coon. I love Anise with all my heart and I hope he lives a long and healthy life with me and my partner.

I have been lost in my studies as of late. I am hoping that I will be able to get more into my tarot business and that people will invite me to more fairs and festivals. Right now I’m only going to a couple but I’m pretty pumped about going to them. I am an OBOD member, so I have been reading my Gwersi. I’m not very far but what really matters is being able to retain the content of the Gwersi. I love being a Bard and I hope that it all sinks in an soothes my need for knowledge.

I have considered doing some painting but I haven’t done that as much lately. I do both watercolour and acrylic painting, along with digital media. I don’t particularly excel at them, but I do so love doing them. I’m also experimenting with written word and using poetry to really make myself feel known. I might start putting poetry up on the blog to see how that is received. I already put motivational quotes and things on my instagram (@VyvyanWormwood as well on there) that people can enjoy that I find and enjoy, personally. Mondays are my “Monday Motivation” posts on there using the Mystic Monday Tarot deck.

If you have something you’d like me to ruminate upon, please send me a comment.

Lots of love,

Entie Vyvyan Wormwood

Weekday Forecast 4.5-4.9.2021

Ethereal Visions Tarot by Matt Hughes

Greetings Tarot Tots.

It’s time for another weekday reading. This week I used the Ethereal Visions Tarot by Matt Hughes.

MONDAY:
3 of Pentacles (Upright)
(keywords: Success, collaboration, solutions, confidence): Today is a day to start working together with a partner or work on your relationships with others. If you are the type to be alone all the time, you might want to consider how you collaborate with others. People will want to work with you today. It’s a good time to start a new project, or work on one you already were working on. Take some time talking with others and be aware that they are going to WANT to help you. Be ready to accept.

TUESDAY:
10 of Cups (Upright)
(keywords: abundance, satisfaction, harmony, accomplishment): That relationship you are building from yesterday is really paying off! Be prepared for good things to come your way! Between the people you are building relationships with, you could be looking for a very successful working coupling. You work well together and it’s honestly one of the best you’ve ever had. May this be a work relationship or a personal one, you are definitely showing some promise. Be prepared for success.

WEDNESDAY:
7 of Cups (Upright)
(keywords: illusion, imagination, unrealistic desires, possibilities): Be present in the moment. That is important for you at this moment. Try to take some time to yourself today and work on the things that will make you get behind sometimes. There are chores that need doing that are going to be great to work on at this time. You can reconnect with the physical things that you have to do in so many different ways. Don’t worry about the relationship you are building today too much. Bare in mind you’ll still have to spend some time with them, but don’t take all day!

THURSDAY:
5 of Swords (Reversed)
(keywords: resolution, forgiveness, understanding, reunion): Today is a good day to work on setting boundaries. You know that there are things in this world that you just can’t stand and someone is trying to push you to do them. If this is about that new relationship, know that they will need to know your boundaries as well. Don’t worry if you fight a little or quarrel a bit; you’re bound to get back on that horse!

FRIDAY:
Page of Swords (Upright)
(keywords: thoughtfulness, clarity, curious, restless): This is the time to do something fun for yourself. Have you considered possibly trying a new style? You might want to do that today. Have fun! Life is about having fun and you can’t always be working (or playing)! You should take things in moderation but why not challenge yourself a little bit today? Go ahead! You deserve it.

Lots of Love.

Weekday Forecast 3.29-4.2.2021

Crow Tarot by MJ Cullinane

Greetings and Salutations my little Tarot Tots!

Today is another fun day of reading tarot for you and I. Another day to see what the week has in store. Shall we begin?

MONDAY:
Page of Wands (Upright)- (Keywords- Ideas, Creativity, Vibrancy): Monday is going to be an interesting day. There’s a lot of chance for today to be a good day. Yesterday was the full moon so there should be some positive energy left over a little bit. Please be aware that we are in a waning moon phase though so things are starting to diminish, energy-wise. Use it wisely.

TUESDAY:
9 of Cups (Upright)- (Keywords- Positivity, fulfillment, grateful): It is a positive day today. We are looking into a time of a lot of emotional intrigue. We’re moving into the time of Aries astrologically. There is a lot of emotion that is pent up in the universe right now. If you are having an issue with relationships right now, have no fear. There could be some fighting with your inner circle during this time so feel free to seek other people out.

WEDNESDAY:
2 if Cups (Reversed)- (Keywords- Negotiation, partnership, confident): As a kind of relationship sense of things this week being lacking, it is possible that one should really be looking inward on this day. Today, you will see that you are lacking in the confidence you need to stand up for yourself. Feel that you are having issues and possibly should look into doing some shadow work, should you be fit at this time.

THURSDAY:
6 of Pentacles (Upright)- (Keywords- Generosity, compassion, charitable): Today is a good day to go back to working on relationships with other people, or just working on ourselves. We must be giving to the people around us but self care is important, too. Always remember that. I have started trying to be kinder to myself these days but it can be hard to remember.

FRIDAY:
Ace of Cups (Upright)- (Keywords- intuition, opportunity, positive relationships): Fridays are always great days to spend having a good time. Hopefully, you are dealing with the world’s new ways of doing things just fine. It’s good to see everyone using the opportunity to get the vaccine and go out into the world again (masked up, safely).

Please be safe this week. I love you kiddos.

Temporary Hiatus Explanation

Greetings Tarot Tots.

It is my sad heart to explain my hiatus as of late. I have been having some serious health issues as of late and will be needing to continue my hiatus for at least another week until I after I will have a procedure done. I am unsure as of when the results of the procedure will allow me to know how much longer the hiatus will be so please keep your eyes peeled for updates.

I will try to at least keep doing some of my content as it tends to help distract me from the things that are affecting me negatively. My health is very poor so I am in a constant battle with this. Please bare with me while I try to get myself back on track.

Much love.

Weekday Forecast 3.1-3.5.2021

The Nightmare Before Christmas Tarot by Minerva Siegal and Abigail Larson

Greetings and salutations my little Tarot Tots! It’s another weekly forecast! I’m a little behind but I”m still here! Let’s go!

MONDAY:
Queen of Candles (Upright. Keywords- independence, confidence, invigoration): Today is a day of living life to its fullest. There is something interesting about it being a Monday and being just so get up and go. There’s things to be done and you are going to get up and do them. Plan for the week to be a busy one and hopefully it won’t let you down.

TUESDAY:
4 of Potions (Reversal. Keywords- introspection, decisions, intuition): A lot of deep thoughts today. If it’s time to think you need, it’s time to think you will get. Today will be busy of course, but there will be some time in it for you to think things over. Are things not going the same with life that you want them to? You should check and recheck your priorities and see where they lie. Maybe someone who is in your life will start giving you hell as well. It’s time to consider the relationship with them to see if it really serves you.

WEDNESDAY:
7 The Chariot (Upright. Keywords- commitment, goals, determination): Today is the day that those goals you checked on yesterday need to start working. I feel that this morning will be the start of new things for you. You can change your life and what you have going on. It’s not hard. It just seems like it is because the things worth doing are always the hard ones. Take some time today to meditate and kind of go over your goals and commitments and see if they really do serve you.

THURSDAY:
7 of Candles (Reversal. Keywords- competition, self-confidence, capabilities): Actions speak louder than words, as always. It’s nice to see things are kind of starting to work out. You could do with some sort of competition in your life to keep you going. Now that competition is not something you need to have with someone else. Perhaps you want to give yourself something to keep you going? It’s going to be difficult but it’s nice to know that even now you can really set a good pace.

FRIDAY:
8 Strength (Upright. Keywords- bravery, courage, compassion, leadership): It takes a lot of gumption to get through this week. You’ll be happy to know that you are going to come out on top. It’s nice to see sometimes that you have the compassion to lead yourself into better pastures I suppose. As long as you know that the goals you started this week are the right ones, you should be fine. Let the stars tell you that your ideals are along the right side of the track.

Weekend Forecast 2.26-2.28.21

Ethereal Visions Tarot Deck by Matt Hughes

Greetings to you, my Tarot Tots!

It’s nice to see you all again! This week kind of rolled in like a thunderstorm, didn’t it? I know we were having some issues this past week so let’s take a peek at what sort of thing the weekend has in store for us. This weekend we are using the Ethereal Visions Tarot deck by Matt Hughes. The artwork is very art nouveau with gold foil on it to give it a bit of a shimmer.

So let’s begin:

FRIDAY:
Page of Cups (reversal)
(keywords- immaturity, insecurity, apathy, impulsiveness): After this week of trying and the zany tribulations that you have gone through, you are beginning to see the issues that are the main problem you have been meaning to deal with. The people or person you are dealing with, or even your self, has been a bit immature this week, and you are out to set things right. Hopefully this weekend we will see a change of heart of the situation and things will get better.

BETWEEN FRIDAY AND SATURDAY: Tonight is the moon in Virgo, a great time for us all. Please be aware that this is a time of change, but is also a good time for things to be brought to light. A moon in Virgo is what is known as a Virgin Moon, and she wants us to “Let Shit Go” (see Cosmopolitan article there). There are better things for us to do during this moon, so check out the link and see if you have something you need to work on specifically.

SATURDAY:
VI Lovers (reversal)
(keywords- separation, imbalance, conflict, disconnection): This is one of the peaks of the week. As this card is a major arcana, one can assume that this has a much bigger part to play in the weeks events. You may be losing something important to you, but know that there are more things out there that you can look forward to. So many people are out there in this world, you cannot be pegged down by just something so utterly simple.

SUNDAY:
8 of Wands (upright)
(keywords- action, balance, change, productivity): At least Sunday seems like it will be a calm down for you. Things will be much simpler today then they have been for you. It’s something of a wonder to understand how you could have not blown some kind of gasket the past week. At least Sunday’s are easy and chill. You will have a good day today for sure, one that is productive and able to allow you to get the most work done.

Alrighty. That’s all I can see for you tonight. Please Enjoy this forecast, maybe tell me what you think about the Cosmo article I linked. I thought it was kind of cute.

-Entie Vyvyan

Weekday Reading 2.22-2.26.2021

Greetings Tarot Tots!

It’s time for another Weekday Reading! I hope you are as excited as I am.

I decided to use The Romantic Tarot today. No real good reason. I just felt like it would be a fun thing to read with this week’s reading.

MONDAY:
8 of Swords (Upright)-
(keyword- imprisonment): Monday is going to start up in a sort of melancholic kind of mood. You’re definitely not feeling your best. You feel like the walls are kind of closing in on you after a weekend of freedom from responsibility. Or at least that is what it feels like. Perhaps you are just suffering “a case of the Mondays” like some people say. This week is definitely not staring off great.

TUESDAY:
6 of Swords (Upright)
– (keyword- passage): There is a relationship in your life that isn’t doing well for you. It’s important for you to rid yourself of this relationship. It could be a passing thing or just something you don’t really consider much of one; they could even be someone that you just see on occasion and not often. It’s important to keep yourself sane by getting rid of relationships that don’t help you along. Time to break some ties.

WEDNESDAY:
Knave of Pentacles (Reversed)
– (keyword- courage): Today is important in that you have the potential to fill up this space that you had with that relationship that you got rid of yesterday. You have all the reason in the world to be a little nervous. But, today is going to be a good day if you so choose it. Get excited and get ready, it’s time to see what the world has in store for you.

THURSDAY:
9 The Hermit (Upright)
– (keyword- concentration): Well, it’s important to have time to yourself these days. So definitely don’t take this time for granted. You have been distracted and all shook up. It could be that you’re thinking of your old relationships. You need to go over the things you do have in your life and then hurry it up because although you have things you let go, there are new things that you are supposed to get INTO your life. Let’s see all that new potential coming in and greet it.

FRIDAY:
5 the Hierophant (Upright)
– (keyword- self-control): The Hierophant can mean that you are looking for more friendships in your life. Different ones perhaps, than the ones that you have in your life right now. You could be feeling pretty lonely, but you aren’t. There are people around you who care for you that you may be overlooking. Take some time to look at those people during this time. If you find yourself missing people, why not look online? Sometimes there are groups of people with interests that you have online that you could connect with. There are always different ways to connect with people these days.

Now, if you want to connect to ME, please feel free to find me in most social media under the name VyvyanWormwood.

I’ll be around.

Monday Motivation

Greetings Tarot Tots. Let’s chat!

Today’s Monday card from the Mystic Monday’s Deck by Grace Duong

Today was the day for Motivation! Monday Motivation that is. Today’s card is the Queen of Cups, a being of intuition, caring, and compassion. They are out to help you in whatever way they can, however they can. This may represent you, this may represent someone in your life. They will bring you what you need during this time of Mercury Retrograde. Understanding will do us all some good at this point in time.

In other news, I recently joined OBOD (The Oder of Bards, Ovates, and Druids)! I am happy to announce that I am now a Bard officially. If you know me personally, you know that this amuses the hell out of me. And I can’t really discuss my lessons and such but I can discuss other things like holidays and how they pertain to me, personally.

Recently, I celebrated Imbolc with my husband, Batsz. Batsz and I are enjoying waiting for Spring to come, but right now we are going through Second Winter. We live in Oklahoma so there are three Winters, in my mind. You have your regular Winter, which doesn’t always give you snow. Hell, none of them guarantee you any snow. This year we are on Second Winter and it has brought us over a foot of snow where we live. It’s white, beautiful bullshit, delivered from my matron goddess, Skadi.

Only recently have I started working with Skadi and she has shown me some of her ways. I have become more confident under her watchful eyes and now she is bringing me this snow to celebrate. I took it as a sign to work on my blog and tarot business today. Tomorrow, I will work on some other things related to this and hopefully I will become more successful.

I have made a few changes and hooked up with some other people online to bring you even more content, but we will see how far those things go.

Anyway, Entie Vyvyan Loves you.

Weekly Reading of 2.14.2021

Greetings Tarot Tots!

Today is the start of something new. I have decided to do weekly tarot readings like I have been doing my Weekend Forecasts. I’m trying to change things up a little bit during the new year to see how well I like it. Let’s see how things play out. This will be the first of it.

Weekday Reading 2.15-2.19.2021

This reading was done with the Star Spinner Tarot by Trungles. It begins with Monday on the left through Friday on the right. Let’s begin.

MONDAY:
The Fool (reversal
)- (keywords: risk, adventure, foolhardy)– Today is the start of the week and what better thing to have then the Fool? Yes, the fool also means the end of a journey, but I feel that this is going to be a great start to your new year. Did I mention the Lunar New Year was this past Friday? How fun! It’s definitely a good sign that you got this on this day. I feel like the new year is going to be good, we just have to work at it. Be prepared for anything, as always, but definitely enjoy the ride.

TUESDAY:
King of Chalices (reversal)
– (keywords: patience, compassion, sensitivity)– Today is a good day to take a break and review the things that have been going on in your life. Take some time to give yourself some good self-care. Take some time to go over your schedule and see about prioritizing the things that are absolutely necessary for your survival. After that, maybe do some exercising to help build up your stamina. This year is going to be long and you are going to be stronger. Why not start now?

WEDNESDAY:
9 of Chalices (reversal
)- (keywords: sacrifice, near-completion, satisfaction)– This reversal feels a bit like you need to find something to finish rather then to actually finish something. Or maybe you had something that was near completion last week that you need to finish now? Either way, you need to be finishing up last week’s projects and see if you can get them completed this week.

THURSDAY:
The Emperor (upright)-
(keywords: order, power, boundaries)- The Emperor is always a very masculine force in the tarot. He is in charge and so are you. See this as taking charge of your life and making sure things get done. Yesterday, we had the 9 of Chalices to see some things near completion. Are you still working on that? Maybe it’s time to get it done today. It’s not a bad thing if you didn’t get it done yesterday; but it’s better if you get it done early in the long run.

FRIDAY
10 of Coins (reversal)
(keywords: abundance, security, stability)- So today you can celebrate your week’s achievements. It has been a hard week but you are showing your stability today. Perhaps this just means it’s your payday? Things are looking up. I know today is a reversal but I just don’t feel like it’s a reversal kind of day in my gut (and you know I always follow my gut). So just take some time for you and your loved ones today. They need you to rely on. Don’t go overboard. If there was something you have been saving up for, you should go ahead and do it now. I think it’s the right time!

Weekend Forecast 1.29-1.31.2021

Greetings my little Tarot Tots!

Here we are with another fun weekend in the world of 2021. I hope you are having a good time. We shall see how this goes.

This week we’re using the Wild Unknown Tarot again. Good old standby.

THEME:
Ten of Pentacles (Upright
)- (keywords- fulfilment, abundance): This is a card that talks about all the success you will/do have at the very moment. Life is going pretty decently and things are looking up. As someone who is in love with pop culture and the different variations of what people are looking at here and now, I would have to say that this “material” and “physical” gain card could do with some of the things we have going on in the world that want us to be earning a little bit of money. It’s pretty crazy how things are going to go this year. Let’s see what this weekend has in store.

FRIDAY:
Wheel of Fortune (Reversed
)- (keywords- destiny, change of course): This card is always a bit of a wild card. Things can change and sometimes things can get out of hand. It’s easy to find a purpose somewhere within this card so that’s an important thing to look for during this day. I’m hoping that with what’s happening in the world and whatever has happened today will help you figure out things you are missing.

SATURDAY:
2 of Wands (Upright)
(keywords- determination, direction): Today is another day with the card pointed in the direction you should be going. Are we lucky? Is this fate? I am not sure, but you should definitely know that there are opportunities knocking at the door and you might want to answer instead of hiding with your butt half out from under the coffee table. There is adventure and magic afoot and you need to be out there watching. When something happens to give you more to look for, try opening your eyes. The world isn’t all bad.

SUNDAY:
10 of Swords (Reversed)(keywords- ruin, rock bottom, melodrama): The fact that we are seeing this card in reverse is probably a good thing. It usually means some pretty negative things, but in reverse it can even be downright lucky. Things are coming to an end and you should look for silver linings.

It’s funny that there were two ten cards from two suits. Three if you include the Wheel of Fortune. I’m unsure about the connection with the numerology of the number ten but I can give some links to a few things I found while researching this post. Looks like this website said to look at it as a number one. You can find it here. Here is another site that looks interesting.

It looks like everything old is new again.
