Holiday In San Francisco

November 30, 2017     Like This Post!

This weekend that passed, I hopped over to San Francisco to spend Thanksgiving with my brother. After he moved out there, I joked how I would never come and visit (but I guess it turns out I lied).

Not that I hate California, I think I find it too typical when people boast about how they want to move to California. Moving to Cali is not an original idea and I’ve heard that goal from multiple people. I can’t help but kinda scoff every time I hear someone say it, but when my younger brother told me he was moving there, I thought, “ugh, not you too”. There are 49 other states – why that one? That question really goes to everyone. Maybe it’s the New Yorker in me wondering why he’d leave such a city that has everything he needs here. But then I think to myself, after leaving Portland, I fell victim to the east coast versus west coast rivalry. Being an east coast gal, I much prefer my coast.

Anywho, I started off the trip with a smidge of a stuck up attitude – not intentionally. But I snapped myself out of it because I obviously wanted to have a good time, especially with my brother. It was only the two of us spending Thanksgiving together from my whole family, so I didn’t wanna make things sour.

Tarot To-Go // Full Moon in Taurus

Guest post written by Victoria

November 5, 2017     Like This Post!

It’s a Full Moon in Taurus and it was recently Halloween and All Saints Day so there’s a LOT of energy in the air focused around relationships with others and ourselves as well as art, beauty, love, and the material world. Remember — the Bull has horns. Feel it?! Traditionally, now is the time where humans buckle down for Winter and this spread is a good one to get ourselves ready for the months ahead.

On November 1st, I was giving away readings and found some beautiful messages for others and myself. Today, I’m sharing with you my own personal spread.

The CURRENT SITUATION is NEW BEGINNINGS. I recently started the National Novel Writing Month Challenge to write 50,000 words in a month. WHAT’S AT THE ROOT OF THE CURRENT SITUATION is my HEART CHAKRA because this project is close to it and is what I love the most. THE CHALLENGE is to REJOICE IN CELEBRATION because this project is supposed to be fun, as it’s so closely tied to my heart and soul’s purpose. I pulled one ADVICE card, which is the reminder to reach out and rely on my PARTNERSHIPS AND ALLIANCES when I need to.

Tarot To-Go // October 23 – October 29

Hurricane Irma did a number on my home state of Florida and set me back a few weeks here on Oddball Era. Luckily, most of us have returned to a state of normal and it’s officially time to get that tarot ball rolling again.

Whenever I start to doubt my magic, all I need to do is grab a deck and I’m reminded of just how much power we humans are capable of possessing.


Monday is the day named for our beautiful Luna — Lunes in Spanish, Lunedi in Italian — so pulling this card for this day was a great reminder of source connection. It’s appearance in our spread for the week means Monday (Moon-Day!) is ripe for a lot of self love and introspection. According to Tarot.com, “The MOON card represents the ultimate test of a soul’s integrity, where the membrane between the self and the unknown is removed, and the drop of individuality re-enters the ocean of being. What transpires next is between a soul and its maker.”

Tarot To-Go // August 7 – August 13

Tomorrow, August 7th, we have a Full Moon — and in some parts of the world, a lunar eclipse — in the fixed air sign of Aquarius at 11:11AM PST. There have been a lot of powerful energies buzzing around lately and a lot of us probably felt really on edge because of it. Fear not — everything is coming together.

Let’s see what the cards say.

As I’ve mentioned before, tarot is an intuitive art and the techniques and methods will vary from reader to reader. Whenever two cards are pulled simultaneously, I read them as one card. This happened a couple of times for this week’s spread!

Tarot To-Go // Intro To August

It has been a crazy couple of weeks for me and the energy in the skies and on my tarot decks have been matching, to boot. We are kicking it back into gear here at Tarot To-Go for the month of August as we revel in that firey energy that we were filled with during that New Moon in Leo a few days ago. Today, to ease us back into the flow of things, I have picked one card from my Mermaid deck to focus on.

And here she is.
