Watch the YouTube video:

Hello sweet friends, and welcome to this week's Mysticscopes for the week of May 1st. Also, happy first day of May! We'll be kicking off with a collective tarot reading from our next podcast guest, Pamela Chen's, the Tarot of the Owls deck. This deck right here. In our episode, which airs this Wednesday, we'll be diving deep into the themes of the Magician card, manifestation, personal power and potential, and creating from one's resources.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for a deck unboxing video for her Tarot of the Owls deck and her Witchling Academy Tarot deck too. Before we dive into the collective reading, I wanted to let you know about the upcoming masterclass I'm hosting on May 15th on how to create your own deck. After creating four decks now, both self-published and working with traditional publishers, I can walk you through the ins and outs of making your own deck. That I wish someone had told me when I was first making mine.

No matter where you are in the process, if you just have an idea, if you've already started making your deck, or if you already have a deck, this masterclass will still have valuable information for you to take with you on your journey as a deck creator. I am so excited to have you join us to RSVP for your ticket.

Collective Tarot Reading from the Tarot of the Owls Deck

Buy the Tarot of the Owls Deck

Now let's get into your collective tarot reading for the week. See what card pops out.

I've got King of Swords, so I'm gonna read out loud from Pamela Chen's guidebook of the Tarot of the Owls, your eloquence and your intelligence are two of the most powerful tools to help you reach your goals. If you wanna stand out from the crowd and win, you have to be heard. Present your audience with logic, strategy, and facts. Show that you have weighed both sides of the equation and you're certain that your choice is the most reasonable one.

So friend, it sounds like there are decisions to be made and with the King of Swords, it's all about using your logic and reasoning to make these sound decisions. Something that I like to do when there are multiple players involved is to ask for the highest good for everyone involved. That way you can set your ego aside if it's present, and you can make sure that whatever decision you make positively impacts those around you. In this card, you can see a butterfly engraved on the throne, and the butterfly is a huge symbol of transformation of metamorphosis. And so you may be coming into a time of your life where you are making decisions that are showing your maturity in your growth, and that you're logically thinking about the possibilities because of your decisions.

So kudos for you, for all of the growth that you have made on your personal journey, and also all of the people around you that are impacted by your decisions to continually develop your own self. Kings often symbolize mastery, and you are entering a phase where you can trust yourself and trust your reasoning that you are making the best decisions for yourself and those around you. Kudos.

Now it's time to get into the readings for each sign of the week. You can click on the timestamps to skip to your sign. It's recommended that you check out your sun, moon, and rising signs. Comment with your favorite emoji if this reading resonates for you.

 Mysticscopes - Aragonite Card - Mystic Mondays Crystal Grid Deck by Grace Duong

♈ Aries: Blue Aragonite

👁️ Watch the YouTube Video

Aries! This week, you've got Blue Aragonite, which symbolizes empathy, compassion, and communication. This crystal activates your throat, third eye in heart chakras, and can help you ease into communicating from a whole and heart-centered place. You are naturally good at inspiring other people to be their best selves, and sometimes you forget about yourself. So by showing yourself that same compassion, you're able to exude that energy outwards to other people. Something that's coming up for you lately is fostering authentic connection, and that could be with the people around you, with your spiritual team, with your inner selves like your inner child, your teenage self. It's important to define the type of relationships that you want to have and who you wanna communicate with this week. Who do you wanna foster that relationship with? And really prioritize that relationship or relationships.

Taurus! We have Vulture here for you this week and the Vulture waits for the right opportunity to feed off decay. So if you've been meaning to clear space and clear anything that is rotting in your space, this is a great time to do some deep spring cleaning. It's also asking you to trust in divine timing because the vulture is all about waiting for the right opportunities to swoop in for the kill, but also take this as a sign that the Vulture is swooping in this week to make you aware of anything that seems off. The Vulture is encouraging you to be resourceful and to look to your own wits to solve your problems. Sometimes keeping things simple is best, and the Vulture is encouraging you to simplify your life, whether it's in your environment, your processes, your day to day look to what can be simplified.

Mysticscopes - Cardinal Card - Mystic Mondays Astro Alignment Deck by Grace Duong 

♊ Gemini: Cardinal

👁️ Watch the YouTube Video

Gemini! You've got Cardinal, which represents initiation, spark, and vision. So we kick off spring with a cardinal sign, which is Aries, and now we have moved into tourist season, which is a fixed sign. I'd like you to look at where you are at during the cardinal part of spring and what seeds you planted during that time, what were you envisioning for yourself and where are you at with that? You can take this energy that Cardinal signs tend to have and initiate what you want and what you desire if you've been waiting on something to happen first. This is a sign that you can take the first step, that you can forge a new path for yourself if you want to. Cardinal signs are naturally leaders, and this is a sign for you to step into those qualities of leadership for yourself. How can you be the leader of your own life and how can you initiate those steps? If you feel like sharing your journey, make sure to leave it in the comments.

Mysticscopes - Seven of Swords Card - Mystic Mondays Tarot Deck by Grace Duong 

♋ Cancer: Seven of Swords

👁️ Watch the YouTube Video

Cancer! You've got Seven of Swords this week, which is all about being discreet and keeping your secrets. This is a card of protecting yourself and not necessarily sharing information with people that don't deserve to know. Basically, you've got cards up your sleeve, and you're not ready to play your full hand just yet. This could work out in your favor for your long-term strategy, so just be careful who's in your circle and take note of who you can really trust. Because the Seven of Swords is saying sometimes you need a few extra bonus cards up your sleeve and it's okay to share this information on your own terms when you're ready. This is also a card about earning trust and those that have earned your trust will be able to get closer to you. This is a card of seeing the truth as well, and that you are now looking beyond what is on the surface when it comes to your circle of friends and family.
