Weekly Reading 10/30-11/5 2016

Weekly Reading

Hey guys! It’s the night before Hallowe’en. I’m super stoked for tomorrow. It’s my favorite holiday (Well, Samhain particularly, but yeah). Here’s your weekly forecast!:

Sunday: Ace of Masks (wands)–  A day of creation and wonderment. Are you celebrating Hallowe’en tomorrow? Maybe you worked on our costume or some treats today. Either way, you have begun creating something wonderful. Even other ventures which are new are going to do well today.

Monday (Hallowe’en and Samhain): 6 of Crosses (pentacles)– Everything you have been working on will be fulfilled wonderfully today. It is a glorious and wonderful day. Celebrate and enjoy life. You will have so much to be thankful for, so spread that joy!

Tuesday (Dia de los Muertos and end of Samhain):  II The High Priestess (reverse)– It’s time to take a step back. Appreciate what you have. Don’t really start anything new right now. That might be bad. BUT if you decide to honor your ancestors today or celebrate the dead, that would be a good idea. Send out your love and respect.

Wednesday: 8 of Crosses (pentacles)– Today is a good day to dedicate yourself to a good cause. Do something for charity today or do something for someone else. The good karma points you’ll get from this will pay off, even if it’s something as simple as buying someone else a coffee at the local convenience store on your way to work or something. I know I will!

Thursday: 2 of Roses (swords) (reverse, although you can hardly tell with this deck! lol)– The twos have always been a time of balance for us. With this being a sword it is one of action. Your decisions will be concise today and all will be clear. You will know what you need to do.

Friday: 5 of Crosses (pentacles)– This is a day you need to do some serious self-care! There are many resources for this. You could have some serious health problems crop up, or you will not feel all your best, it is sad to say. Self-care is very important.

Saturday: XX Judgement (reverse)– Yeah, you are definitely not doing well today. Things are uneasy and very shifty. Please be careful as to what you are doing today. There is a lot that needs to be worked on. Take some time to yourself or if you need to seek medical help, do not hesitate to do so (please note that I am not a doctor AT ALL but DO urge you to get help when you need it).

That’s all for this week. Looks like a pretty interesting one. Hope you enjoy!

Darkest Blessings and Blessed Samhain,

Weekend Thoughts

Weekend Thoughts:

This week I have started reading “The Book of Thoth (Egyptian Tarot)” by Aleister Crowley (The Master Therion). It’s an interesting read so far. I have been watching a few videos that I have found online as well.

So, the book has been a bit confusing. There are terms in it that I am not quite familiar with, as they talk a bit about the Qabalistic business in it, which I honestly have never studied. Is this something that you guys know a bit about? If you do, send a comment or contact me with some information. I’m looking things up, but that doesn’t mean I know what exactly what I’m looking for, if I’m even looking for something in particular.

The book also talks about numerology. This I know a little bit about. It’s pretty simple to figure out. I’ll drop a good link for you that I like to refer to:

This is a really well made page that you can check out when you want to. I’ve learned quite a bit from it.

I’m also reading “Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot: An authorative examination of the world’s most fascinating and magical tarot cards” by Lon Milo DuQuette. This book seems to be a bit of an easier read from what I’ve gotten out of it so far. It’s been less… I’m not sure how to put it (?)… Intense, I suppose. Crowley is a very intense read. I really recommend this book to read though.

My thoughts for the weekend are this: Have you worked with the Thoth Tarot? How was your experience? Do you think you would work with it again, if you’ve worked with it before? And lastly, Do you think that tarot is it’s own person that you can communicate with?

I feel like all of my cards (and literally all of the things on Earth, man-made or no) have some form of spirit (artificial or not) that we can interact with. Do you dispute my view? Feel free to leave a comment and let me know. I’m very open minded and enjoy others views.

Darkest Blessings

Weekly Reading 10/23-10/29/2016

Reading for the week of 10-23-2016 to 10-29-2016

Hi guys. It looks like another week has rolled around. It seems like the time is passing by so quickly lately. I went to a Halloween party last night so I’m a little behind again. I suppose this is becoming my usual. Ha ha!
Okay. Let’s get started.

Sunday 10-23-2016
The Sun (irony)– Sunday is a good day. It’s relaxing. There is so much going on but you will just let it roll by. You will be rewarded for all of your endeavors in the past or present, be it a meal or some form of  affection. There are many types of rewards, but these are rewards of the light. They are love and wonder. You will not be disappointed.

Monday 10-24-2016
King of Wands– Your boss or someone above you is going to have something to do with today. If they are in charge, follow what they say. They are not trying to steer you wrong (even if they may, but it’s not their fault). The light is on your side this week.

Tuesday 10-25-2016
Six of Pentacles– This is a good day for dealing with money (if you are so inclined). Be generous with what you have and you will be rewarded with so much love and kindness. This is a good day to do volunteer work.

Wednesday 10-26-2016
Five of Swords (Reversed)– Sadly, this is not a good day. Be aware that you may be embarrassed or harassed in some way today. With the five in charge of today you will need to have strength. Know that there is always another day and you will be fine.

Thursday 10-27-2016
Eight of Pentacles (Reversed)– Time is not on your side today. You may be late somewhere or you may have a short temper. Things are not going your way again. As with yesterday, you will just have to know that there is always another day. But please remember that time is precious as well. Spend it with those you love and tell them you love them.

Friday 10-28-2016
Eight of Swords (Reversed)– This day is not a good day. Things that you have been working on are really going to get blown out of the water. I don’t think this is a good day, but you can do some simple affirmations to remind yourself that there is always some sort of positive in the world.

Saturday 10-29-2016
Four of Cups (Reversed)– You are exhausted. Time has been bad this week. There are still things that need to be done. Gather up your strength and do them. This will only help your situation in the future.

That’s all for this week!
Darkest Blessings,

Reading 10/16 – 10/22 2016

This week I will be reading with the Vampire Tarot by Robert M Place. It is based on various vampire legends, gothic authors, literary and movie figures, and so on. I really enjoy reading with this deck. It has a very interesting sort of imagery that is quite classic.

So let’s start!

Sunday: Five of Holy Water (reversed):  stuck in the past. Unable to move forward. I feel that things will be stuck in place today. (Or have been, since this day is over already). You will have to figure out how to get past this blockage to move on with your week proper. I see it could be an argument or something that is blocking you.

Monday:  King of Holy Water (reversed): Sir Henry Irving is in this card. It seems like a person, possibly the person (or thing) that blocked you on Sunday, is rearing it’s ugly head. You will probably not have a pleasant time during the day, and it may wear over into when you make it home (if you had left the home during this day for any reason).

Tuesday: XIX The Sun:  Good news! Today is the day you get over the hump. No, not hump day! The slump you’ve been in the past couple of days. It will be resolved for certain today. Don’t worry and play it cool. Just don’t make it into a big to-do and you’ll be fine.

Wednesday: IX The Hermit: It’s time to be alone for the day. Take a mini vacation and get yourself pampered. You will do just fine. Just make sure you relax because otherwise you will just cause yourself undue stress.

Thursday: Knight of Stakes (reversed): Edgar Allen Poe! You’re going to be full of energy today due to this card being in reverse. You will have so much to do and you know you can get it done. Someone is counting on you. It may be just you or a pet or something, but someone (or thing) is counting on you to use your energy to the fullest today. Make it happen!

Friday: Ace of Stakes (reversed): Looks like whatever you spent your energy on isn’t exactly the best of things. You are going to have a hard time today. Try to make up for it, but remain calm. There is always tomorrow!

Saturday: King of Stakes: Franz Liszt. Use your positive personality traits to the best of your abilities. If you stay positive today you will be able to deal with all of the trouble from this past week. Don’t stress. Help people out. Maybe even volunteer your time somewhere. It all depends on what you are good at.

And that’s this week’s reading. Feel free to interpret however you see fit.

Weekly Reading 10/10/16-10/15/16

Weekly Tarot Reading for 10-10-2016 to 10-15-2016

Hi guys. This is this week’s Weekly Draw. I am going to start trying to do these on Sundays but today is Monday, so I am terribly sorry for that.

Monday: The Ace of Pentacles/Disks– “Self-confidence” Today is a day that you need to kind of get your butt in gear. It will do you well. Getting that get up and go feeling will start this week off right. It might be difficult, but perhaps a few positive affirmations would help. Just try to be mindful and don’t get TOO confident. This could lead to trouble later on.

Tuesday: Queen of Pentacles/Disks– “Sound administration” Today is a good day to give and recieve advice. What you choose to say should be carefully worded, and what you listen to should be considered before acting. Always think before you act. That is the key to Tuesday.

Wednesday: Knight of Wands (Reverse)– “Impulsiveness” Your actions from Tuesday may have bled over into today. You react without thinking. Try not to do this. Don’t run from the problem that was created. Stay and fight for what you believe in.

Thursday: Knight of Cups/Chalices– “Offer” This is a good day to offer something to the spirits and connect. You could even give something to someone else in your life. This is a really good time to just give gifts or share something. It will help your previous day’s folly. Don’t worry about it too much. Just give something from the heart to someone you love or you want to impress and it will come across nicely.

Friday: Knight of Swords– “Break-up” This is a difficult day. You will find that there are various obstacles in your path that you need to overcome. With the proper thought and action, you will do well. It will be very trying and could wear on for a while. This is only the beginning.

Saturday: XIX The Sun– “Joyous Occasion” This is a great day to make up for yesterday. I’m sure that it will be a bit chaotic, but once you start to get the hang of whatever has changed, you will find that you will be better off. Did you cut someone out? Take time to heal.
Meditate on this week and give it thought. You will see so many things will be changing this week. I would say do something routine this week. There are a few astrological events that could say that we need the routine. It’s all varied.

Darkest Blessings,

Weekend Thoughts- Colour

Weekend Thoughts

Hi there everyone!

Colour means so much to us. Even those of us who wear mostly black (don’t judge me), we all have our different meanings from colours. There are even different shades of black (which makes it difficult to actually match black with black).

But I digress. This is about colour and colour in the tarot and our various other endeavors. Mostly my thoughts on this though. I’m not a professional with colour. I go by what I have learned over the years.

Let’s start in rainbow order; R.O.Y. G. B.I.V. (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet)

Red is the first colour we come across when we are going through a spectrum. Well, the first VISIBLE colour we see. It is a primary and very much basic colour. The easiest to work with. You will find that most of your basic instincts and primitive mind and material things tend to come from this colour. Your needs like finding shelter, food, and occasionally sex (reproduction really) are things that red is in charge of. In the chakra chart, you will find red to be your base chakra. It is located in your genital region and can sometimes seem to grow roots towards the Earth. This is not always stagnation, but it can get that way if not messed with frequently. Red is our passion, our livelihood, and life. It is the beginning and also an end of sorts.

Orange is the second colour on the spectrum. I always have difficult with this colour because it tends to be a strange mixture of red and yellow (as green is yellow and blue, and so on). Colours like this are more like hybrid colours. Orange is a colour of contentment. It is peaceful, but at the same time tumultuous because of it’s hint of red. There are passions here, but these are typicall things that are not as easy to get (you could say this colour is “hard to pin down” or “hard to handle”). There is some joy in this. The red in this colour gives you creativity. It hooks into your mind and allows you to feel the passion and harness it for whatever your purpose is!

Yellow is the third colour on the spectrum. This one is easy. Happiness and delight. Pleasures will come to you with yellow in your life. It is a colour of triumph and no longer being held back. The two colours before it have gotten you to this colour. You can feel it after you have achieved your primary concerns (red) and when you have harnessed your creativity (orange). It is pure. The only unfortunate part is that it is very bright (I’m a goth. I don’t say “darkest blessings” for nothing. Yellow is not my colour. lol, Even if I have it in my life).

Green is the fourth colour on the spectrum. Lots of people assume that green is a healing colour. And in it’s own way, it is. It also brings material wealth to you. Green is the colour of money after all (although not in every country, of course). You can spread positive wealth energy by decorating in green. You can even spread positive weather (or negative, if you’re just that way. lol) with this colour. Imagine the wind with a green hue and you can feel the wonderful breeze on your face (YMMV).

Blue is the fifth colour on the spectrum. This colour is very misunderstood. It has been noted to be a colour of sadness and the feeling of “being blue.” I feel that this colour is related to pain and healing. One cannot progress further unless one has healed a bit (“physician, heal thyself” from Luke 4:23. I don’t read the bible or anything, but I can appreciate a good quote. I am very much a person of a variety of interests). Blue is linked to your throat chakra so it is very much a mouthpiece. With a lot of blue, one can become overly chatty (I have a very blue aura so I talk/rant a lot. Trust me) or just an over sharer (again, me). Blue is how we create our worlds with our words and encourage others.

Indigo is the next colour, the sixth even. You could refer to it as your “sixth sense,” as it is a psychic colour. This is a very powerful and potent colour to work with. When you embrace this colour you embrace a world that was probably unknown to you before. Some people have always been open to this world. These people are usually called Indigo Children. There are many of these nowadays. You can kind of tell. They are different, they work off of their feelings and their empathy. This is an entirely different story anyway. Perhaps I’ll write more on it at some point. If you surround yourself in indigo, you will improve the way you are able to see or feel psychically. This colour can command the other colours below it. It is that potent.

Violet is the final colour of the seven shades of the rainbow spectrum. This is your spiritual purpose. You will find what you need within this colour. Your faith, your being… Everything. Even if you lack faith of some kind, that is a form of faith. It is impossible to not have some form of faith. Even Nihilists, who have believe that nothing will ever happen and everything is pointless have faith in something (faith in nothing).

Then we have our three value colours: White, Grey, and Black.

Black is a grounding colour. It is there to dispel any form of negativity. It is seen as a negative thing by many people, but I believe it is misunderstood. We just need to learn how to utilize this colour. Use this colour to empower yourself and protect.

White is your all-purpose colour. You can use it for pretty much anything. Most tealights come in white, so it is good to get those if you work with candle magic. Quartz, which is clear, has smattering of white where it has cracked or formed, and it is seen as a very valuable resource. White is kind and giving. With white, you know you are doing the right thing.

Grey is your final colour. It is a mixture of both black and white. It shows that you have experience in both and can work with either colour equally. It is a balance. This colour can be used when working pathways, though it can be difficult to acquire candles in this colour (difficult but not impossible). Grey is an amazing colour to work with. It is a colour of nature (not to be confused by green, of course. They have very similar ways of working together). Let this force help you every day. It is not negative.

That’s what I’ve got for now!

Darkest Blessings,

Friday’s Spread

Hey everyone! I’m going to start trying to do a spread before each day. I think this will be a little bit more helpful and is something that I have seen other readers do. Let me know what you think. I don’t mind comments at all.

Today’s spread is using The Housewives Tarot and The Heart of the Faerie Oracle decks. I use oracle decks to basically sum up a reading, a moral of a story if you will.

In the top spot of my reading is the issue at hand: The Six of Wands. This card represents all the good things that we have accrued recently. The praise that we love to hear. With the Housewives Tarot, you can see that the home of the woman in charge is immaculate. Her neighbors are all jealous. Are you dealing with people trying to copy or try to be like you? This is highly possible with this card.

In the past spot, we see the Four of Pentacles, or as the booklet says “The Miserly Card.” From what I’m seeing here it would seem that you were holding something back. You have your pride and joy stashed away and you need to reveal it to the world, but you are sort of afraid or nervous to.

Oh my! It looks like in the present spot is XI Justice, a major arcana card, in reverse. Looks like this one is thinking that you’re currently not getting the recognition you are needing or in this case “deserving.” You need to release your potential into the world…


The future spot holds VI The Lovers. Your potential has the opportunity to pair you up with one or more special someones who can help you really get to business. With their help, you will be able to do so much. The trust in this situation is difficult, because you feel that you are capable of doing enough on your own. It’s okay to think that, but in this case you need to accept the help.

Our moral card is number 56 The Challenge of the Heart of the Faerie Oracle deck, and it’s upright! This is good news! It looks like everything here is going to turn out just right this week. You’re going to go the proper direction, with the help of a friend(s), acquaintance(s), or even lover(s). Don’t let negative self talk be your prison. Just go through with it and take a risk.

Risks seem to be the theme for this time of year. This is probably due to the whole veil being thin issue that goes on during Samhain (or Halloween for other people). Spirits are very active and challenging us. Some of them are helping us. Do you have an ancestor to honor? It’s always a good idea to give a nod to them in remembrance.

Wednesday Spread!

Hello everyone. It’s Wednesday, 10-05-2016. The deck I decided to use today is the Gothic Tarot deck, featuring artwork by Joseph Vargo. It’s funny because I have only used this deck a couple of times and have had varying responses from it that seem a bit peculiar. Today I drew a bunch of twos in this spread. I should say that this has not happened in all the years I have been reading. I have had one or two of the two cards, but I have not had three of the two cards.

When this is the case, we have to start looking at the numerological explanation for such a thing. In this case I feel that this is something that goes along with the card that I drew for my twitter card of the day: 8 of cups. Both the negative of two and the positive of this 8 of cups. This all breaks down to the fact that there are some bad memories being drawn forth from the depths of our psyches.

The two of pentacles in the past, the two of wands in the present, and the two of cups in the future all pertaining to the idea of 0 The Fool in reverse means that there is a stagnation going on. Within this stagnation is our material, intellectual, and emotional selves are not getting the time during this Wednesday’s reading.

On a further note, IV The Emperor came to me as a jumper, or a bonus card if you will. He is showing me that we are being inflexible during this time. We need to try to open our minds to the possibility of something new occurring. This is a chance for a new opportunity! This is the time for us to take a chance. Don’t let The Emperor hold you back. In this way, he might be a person that you know who is doing it, or he might even be yourself.

I feel this reading will mean something different for everyone, of course, but we should all be paying attention.

So get out there and take a chance. Do something new. Do something you were dreaming or wanting or even needing to do. This is the time to do it.

10 Quick Tips About Tarot

Hi there beautifuls! I have many tips about Tarot, so I wanted to share some of the things that I have learned over the years. I’ve been reading since I was ten years old, and now I am currently twenty nine years old. I am sure there are things that you will recognize as familiar, but I am hoping some of these tips are different for you and very interesting. Enjoy!

If one believes in animism, a deck has it’s own spirit. People have told me that it is more of the energy from the deck that is a spirit. I’m very much with them on both thoughts. I like to believe that they should be treated as one treats a beloved friend or family member when working with the tarot (or any other thing really).

2. Crystals, gems, minerals, etc. are very important when working with the tarot. You can use the crystals to clear or charge the deck with various energy or remove energy, like a sponge even!

3. Yes or No questions are a fun thing to do. I do this by shuffling the deck and pulling a card out from a random place in the deck that “feels” right. Then, I will set it in front of me. If it is upright, it’s a yes. If it is reversed, it is a no. Either way, you read the card as information on that yes or no as well. For example, if I was doing a yes or no, and I pulled the tower card in reverse, it would be no but it would also mean that there was something very destructive going on. It’s up to how you read it.

4. You don’t have to exactly memorize the tarot cards. You can read by judging the symbolism on the card itself. This is called intuitive reading, which is how I do most of my readings.

5. An oracle card can be read (one or however many you feel necessary) after or during a tarot reading as something like a “moral of the story” card. These tend to pull the reading together properly and you can see things more clearly. I use this method with most of my spreads.

6. Music can help get you in the mood when reading. I suggest finding something inspirational. I have some belly dancing music I like to play while I read because it has a good beat and I get the proper “feeling” for it.

7. Most people say that you should turn off electronics while you do tarot reading (or divination of any kind, really). This is very much true. You don’t have to always, but it really helps keep you from being distracted and for that energy to seep into your reading and taint it a bit.

8. Something to condiser when reading intuitively is that each deck has different images. Usually there are common themes that run an undercurrent through every deck, but there are symbols on the cards, like colours or objects and such, that can be interpreted differently.

9. When getting a deck, try to get one that calls to you. If you get a good gut feeling about it, try it out. I will post my way to “train” a deck one of these days for people to try out.

10. Trying the same question with a deck can typically mess with the reading. Say I was asking that yes or no question again. If I asked it over and over to the same deck, the reading would soon become tainted. Even if you try it with different decks, you will get some very strange readings. The energy knows you are trying to get a certain answer and you will only get that answer. So maybe asking questions in a variety of different ways, or asking something that pertains to the original question but elaborates on it would help a lot more.

So that’s my quick tips. I hope you enjoyed. I had fun writing it. If you have questions, feel free to ask! I love to hear from my viewers!

Lots of love,
-Vyvyan Wormwood
