Leo New Moon Weekend Edition: Saturn's Day & Sun-Day August 15 th- 16 th 2015

Daily Intuitive Guidance for the Now Age

Each week, as I feel guided, I will feature a deck from my own collection, along with intuitive impressions from the cards at the time of drawing them, a suggested focus for the day (mantras) and a theme for the week. This week's featured deck is Celtic Messages created by Joules Taylor and illustrated by Emma Nelson.

Why I love this deck: It was given to me by a close friend who was exploring Reiki at the time and later became one of my first second degree students. I have always had an affinity for Celtic culture and art so to have this deck join my collection was not only welcomed but fitting. I love the uniqueness of working with round cards, echoes of the land who birthed King Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table. This deck reminds me of the importance of community and cooperation.

Liked the blog? Looking for a little help reconnecting to your own Inner Guidance or want to learn more about Divination?   Check out my Personal Intuitive Guidance sessions (aka readings). They can be a great way to get to the Heart of the Matter and explore different tools to help deepen our connection to our intuition.  While the Celtic Moon Sign Astrology Report provides in-depth exploration of the challenges and opportunities working on accepting the Shadow Self (what we don't consciously know or "like" about ourselves) can bring.  

What is so special about this deck: "Celtic Messages draws on the rich symbolism and striking imagery of Celtic mythology, and present a carefully selected series of 52 key ideas. Illustrated with the ancient and magical symbols of Celtic lore, the cards fall into four suits representing the four main aspects of Celtic culture - Places (Sacred Landscapes of the heart of Soul), Helpers (Deities and Heroes), Tools (talismans of Celtic ritual and festival) and Totems (Animal Guides). Each of the cards is fully described in the book, which includes divinatory meanings, and gives an insight into the importance of the symbols - both for the ancient Celts and for us today. Place cards symbolise where you are or where you ought to be. This can be a spiritual or emotional place as much as a physical location. Helper cards symbolise people and their personal qualities. Tool cards symbolise forces inside yourself, actions you need to take, or tools – physical, mental or spiritual – you need to use, to accomplish your aims. Totem cards are all animals sacred to the Celts. They symbolise the qualities you need to draw on from deep within yourself in order to resolve the problems facing you, achieve your goals, or take the next step in your journey through life. "
