Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Tarot or Oracle Spread

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Tarot Spread

If you’re a bit witchy and you have Netflix, you’ve probably been binging Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. If you haven’t, go and do it right now. It’s bloody brilliant!

As a 90’s teenager I was a huge fan of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I had blonde hair back then and I pretty much thought I was Melissa Joan Hart. And although I miss talking Salem, I’m loving this super dark and creepy update!

I created this spread to help you tune into your own witchiness, your inner Sabrina and to help you balance both light and dark within.

When I did the spread for myself it was epic! I got all majors and some powerful messages! :o This isn’t just a quirky pop culture tarot spread, this really works to help you tune in!

So go grab your deck - Tarot, Oracle, Angel, whatever, and let’s get reading!


1. Your spiritual abilities that are awakening

What natural spiritual talents are surfacing? What spiritual superpowers are ready to be uncovered? What’s awakening within you? Maybe it’s not your sixteenth birthday, but there are always new spiritual abilities to develop!



2. Protection message (who/what has your back?)

This could be a message about protection - e.g, how to protect your energy, your home and your magic, or it could be a message about who or what has your back. Sabrina has many good friends but there are also some peeps out there who maybe don’t have her best intentions at heart. This card can help you see clearly who has your back and how to protect your magic.



3. What are you resurrecting?

What in your life is feeling a little slate or dry that needs some love and attention? What parts of yourself have been hidden? This card could mean so many different things for you, but this is not about literally resurrecting a body, K Sabrina?


4. What needs to stay buried?

What in your life is finished? What are you releasing and letting go? What is done and buried? What is definitely not ever coming back? Remember no good can come from digging up the past.



5. How you can you balance the light and dark within you?

Luckily most of us don’t have to choose between the path of night or the path of light and we get to explore both dark and light aspects of ourselves. This card can give you some guidance on how to balance both the light and dark parts of you.



6. How can you balance the spiritual and the mortal aspects of yourself?

It’s hard being half witch and half mortal sometimes. This card can give you some insight into how to balance the spiritual and the 3D human aspects of ourselves so we can navigate our lives with more ease.

Clueless Tarot + or Oracle Spread

Clueless Tarot Spread New Age Hipster x

The other day I had big plans to sit down and watch Twilight with a massive bowl of popcorn slathered in butter but Netflix had taken it down! Why??

So I hit the teen movies section and watched Clueless for like, the 50th time or something. OMG it never loses it's edge. In fact, it's  a movie that may even be getting better with age. It did make me pretty nostalgic for the 90's though. 

So grab your deck of cards (any cards you have will work!) and your favourite plaid outfit and let's get clued up!

 

1. What are you being totally clueless about right now?

We all have the ability to be a little bit Cher-like. Where are you being clueless in your life?


2. What are you cluing into?

What are you starting to get? What are you learning? What's finally making sense?


3. Where are you ignoring your intuition and guidance?

We all ignore our own guidance sometimes, what are you ignoring right now?


4. What's right in front of you that you're not seeing?

This is like when Cher realises she likes Josh. What is the Josh to your Cher? 

 

If you wanna share your spread on Instagram please tag me in the photo or story so I can find you! :D

The Breakfast Club Spread for Tarot + Oracle Cards

Breakfast Club Tarot Spread by Vix from New Age Hipster

The Breakfast Club is one of the most awesome movies ever made.

I got to thinking lately about the archetypes featured in the movie. We each have all of the archetypes of the tarot within us, and I think we all have all the archetypes featured in the Breakfast Club within us too.

I thought it would be cool to make a spread to help us get some messages from our own inner BASKET-CASE, inner criminal, inner brain, inner athlete and inner princess.

So grab a decaf earl gray and your tarot, oracle, uno or playing cards and let's have a play! :D

Here's one I made earlier with the   NewAgeHipster InstaOracle   x

Here's one I made earlier with the NewAgeHipster InstaOracle x

CARD ONE: What blocks you from being seen and loved by others?

This card will shed a little light on why sometimes you might struggle to fully connect with others and feel seen and loved when you do.

 

CARD TWO: Where should you play by the rules?

Sometimes rules are there for a reason. This card will show you how to play the game. (This card may also show you where not to play by the rules!)

 

How can you stand in your confidence and power?

There is nothing wrong with being a brain or a geek. Freaking own it! This card will show you how. 

 

How can you better focus your intent and take action?

Taking action is so important, but you have to make sure you have a clear intention and focus otherwise it's just wasted energy. This card will point you in the right direction.

 

How can you let go of ego and be of service to others?

How can you drop the "what will I get out of it?" and just be of service?

 

If you wanna share your readings with me you can do that over on the Tarot Nerds Facebook Group or tag me on Instagram!

He-Man Spread for Tarot or Oracle Cards x

He-Man Spread.png

Last week I posted a She-Ra Spread to help us with standing in our power.

I talked about how I reckoned that She-Ra was an embodiment (uh, cartooniment?) of the Goddess, the Divine Feminine.

And because I'm all about equality of the sexes I decided that it wouldn't be right not to follow up with a He-Man spread for connecting with our own inner divine masculine!

If you've got a bit of time you might want to check out all my spreads here, and if you wanna know how you can connect with He-Man in spirit guide form check out my post about Pop Culture Spirit Guides! :D

Okies, now go grab a cuppa and a deck of cards (oracle or Tarot, anything will do!) and I'll meet you back here!

Here's one I did earlier with the Revelations Tarot. x

Here's one I did earlier with the Revelations Tarot. x

What beliefs do you hold about your own masculine energy?

There's a lot of issues with the Patriarchy right now and it's easy at times to like, not want to connect with our own masculine energy because of it. But the divine masculine is cool. It's like all the good aspects of masculine energy.

This card will show you what beliefs (positive or negative) you have around connecting with your own masculine energy

 

What are your power tools?

This is not about literal power tools, like chainsaws. This is about using the tools you already have (material or within you) to connect to your power.

 

What is your heart strength?

The Divine Masculine is so total heart strength. What is yours?

 

What's up with your willpower?

Willpower is pretty useful when it's working. This card will show you what you need to know about your own strength of will.

 

How to connect with your courage and strength

And lastly, a card to show you how to connect with your inner courage and strength as you move forward on your path of power!

 

I'd love to check out your readings using this spread, so please tag me on Instagram or come share in the Tarot Nerds group on Facebook! :D

She-Ra Princess of Power Spread for Tarot + Oracle Cards

She-Ra tarot spread x

Is it any coincidence that right at the same time the planet needs a major rising of peeps standing in their power She-Ra explodes onto Netflix?

Probably not.

She-Ra is Goddess energy personified and dressed in a very awesome gold and white 80's outfit and I personally feel like she's here to remind all of our inner little girls (boys you too have an inner little girl) of our own divine power and strength in these tricky times!

So grab your tarot, oracle, angel, or whatever cards, make yourself a raspberry slushie and let's get down to some connecting with our power She-Ra style.

Here's one I made earlier with the  Starchild Tarot  x

Here's one I made earlier with the Starchild Tarot x

CARD ONE: What is calling you into your power?

Anything at all can be the catalyst to our rising into our own power.

A situation where our power has been taken, a feeling of helplessness, a desire to help and heal others or even just a desire to live a more balanced life. This card will show you what is calling you to rise right now.

 

CARD TWO: What beliefs are hindering or helping you?

We all have so many thoughts and beliefs about ourselves, most of which are so not true. Some thoughts can stop us from hopping into our power suits, other thoughts, the more positive ones, can help us to stand strong! Which beliefs are asking to be seen and heard?

 

CARD THREE: Your obvious super power

This super power may actually only be obvious to people who know you, and not necessarily to you personally. But either way, this is a power that you have that is definitely not a secret!

 

CARD FOUR: Your secret super power

Here's some info about your secret super power/s. This power may be a secret to you too!

 

CARD FIVE: Where and how to stand in your power now

Now that you know what your powers are, what are you going to do with them? This card will give you some insight into where to stand in your power and how to do it!

 

If you want to check out my other fun spreads you can do that here. And if you wanna share your spreads you can tag me in your pics on Instagram or come hang out in Tarot Nerds or Spiritual Journey Pitstop on Facebook.

And if you want me to read for you I'd love to do that too. All the deets are here.

With so much love, light and powers of princesses,

The OA Tarot Spread

The OA Tarot Spread

If you're not totally losing your shiz over the OA on Netflix you're not doing 2017 right.

Me and the bf binge watched it over a couple of nights after being totally hooked from the start. Interdimensional travel, Angels, a killer soundtrack and the best choreography you've ever seen in your life? I mean, OMG. Stop even reading this and just go watch it.

The story line revolves around our girl Prairie who has a near death experience and then gets kidnapped by a creepy doctor who wants to do experiments on her, and others like her.

So obvs, the idea of feeling "trapped" was the inspiration for this spread.

If you want to know what's going on in your own life with feelings of being trapped and how to break free, this is the spread for you!

Tarot, Oracle and especially Angel cards are welcome for this one! 

5 cards, 5 movements! :O #TheAngelOracle by Ambika Wauters x

5 cards, 5 movements! :O #TheAngelOracle by Ambika Wauters x

CARD ONE: Where are you trapped?

This card will give you an idea of where you're trapped in your life.

In what areas of your life are you feeling stuck?

 

CARD TWO: Who or what has trapped you?

Hopefully not a creepy doctor, but perhaps it's a person, a situation, a belief or thought, perhaps something from the past holding you?

This card will show you who or what is responsible for your stuck-ness.

 

CARD THREE: Escape plan

Here you'll gather your resources and come up with a way out of this.

 

CARD FOUR: Interdimensional assistance

Even the best of us need a little assistance from another dimension now and then.

Advice coming in from your Angels right about now!

 

CARD FIVE: Way out

This card shows you the step/s to take to move out of this trapped and stuck feeling and out into freedom.

Here's one I made earlier with the Linestrider Tarot + the Vessel Oracle x

Nashville Shadow Work Tarot Spread

Things I love: Nashville, Tarot + a bit of personal development.

Shadow work is not a term I use a lot. Not because I don't do it, but as a "lightworker" I kind of feel like my whole life is shadow work! Shadow work to me is really just looking at our own shit and sorting it out. If you wanna be a lightworker you're not going to get very far by just ignoring your human self stuff and your ego. Shadow work helps us to work with our ego rather than against it, or just ignoring it!

But sorting yourself out does not have to be boring right?! 

Nashville has some interesting characters, and you can't really watch it without thinking - OMG these guys so need to do some shadow work. 

You can use this spread with any kinds of cards although I find regular ole' Tarot the best for this kind of thing. 

You don't need to know the show to use this spread, but I highly recommend checking it out, especially if you're into cute cowboys and country music. I think it's a past life thing for me. Or maybe in a parallel incarnation I'm actually Taylor Swift before she went mainstream. Just a thought. 

Word of warning: shadow work is not for the faint of heart. It often kicks your butt and pisses you off before it sets you free. It shines light on all the places where you're being a dick and some people don't dig that kind of thing. Personally I find it quite liberating as long as I'm in the right frame of mind to be doing it.

Don't attempt shadow work on a day when you're feeling sorry for yourself or low vibe.

LAYLA - what dream always evades you?

Poor Layla. She wants to be a big, big star but there's always someone or something holding her back.

This card will shed some light on that big dream of yours that just never seems to get any traction. 

 

WILL - what part of yourself do you hide from the outside world?

Will has spent a lot of time hiding his sexuality from the world, fearing that people won't like him if they know the truth even though I'm pretty sure we all love a gay cowboy with a great voice who looks a hell of a lot like Luke from the OC

This card will show you what part of yourself you're hiding from the outside world. 

 

MADDIE - what big dream are you not quite ready for?

Maddie just really wants to have a recording contract and be the next big thing in Country, but her Mom says she's not ready. Boo!

This card will show you something you're not quite ready for. Doesn't mean it's not going to happen, just not just yet! 

 

REYNA - what are you trying to control?

I love Reyna so much. I mean, her hair right? But she is pretty much a control freak.

What are you trying to control in your life right now that you should probably loosen the reigns on a little?

 

DEACON - what are you addicted to?

Deacon does a damn good job of dealing with his addictions. How are you doing with yours?

Addictions can be big or small; coffee, Facebook, drama or hard drugs. What's your poison? 

 

JULIETTE - what illusions do you have about your life and your dreams?

Juliette is super famous, and being super famous sometimes gives you some pretty whack ideas about life.

This card will help you discover what illusions you have about  your own life. 

 

JEFF - where are your morals a little sketchy?

Jeff isn't really a bad guy, but he sure does make some pretty ruthless decisions sometimes. Hey, none of us are perfect. Hopefully you're not blackmailing anyone into letting minors sign with your label or getting the police to cover up your almost-lethal pool parties...

But if your morals are a little sketchy in some way, this card will let you know where. 

 

AVERY - what negative thought patterns are holding you back?

I honestly have a big ole' country crush on our boy Avery Barkley, but I don't think I could actually date him. I mean, he's just a bit too much of a brooding downer most of the time. Urgh. Like lighten up a little man! 

This card will let you know where you're negativity is holding you back. 

 

SCARLETT - what old dreams need reviving? 

One minute she's having a meltdown on stage while playing for a packed out arena, next episode she's singing at the Bluebird! You can always revive old dreams, no matter how stale they are, or how much you swore you'd never do it again!

This card will let you know what old dreams you have that can be revived if you want them!

 

GUNNAR - where are you wearing your rose coloured glasses?

Gunnar is totes adorbs. He falls in love with every girl he meets and still holds a flame for them all, jumping at the first chance to get back with his ex, or his other ex, or his ex's best friend. It never totally works out for him though. I wonder why hmmm?

This card will help you see where you're wearing those rose coloured glasses in your own life. 

 

So go get your Nashville boxset and a deck of cards and get your shadow work on country style!

Tarot with Friends (Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Joey, Ross and Phoebe)!

Friends Cast playing cards Some people practice their Tarot skills while hunched over a table with a couple of candles, a huge stack of books, some crystals and a deck of Tarot cards. While I do like this method on occasion there's a style of Tarot practice that is just way more me. You know I'm all about Pop Culture Tarot and Tarot making sense in the real world and so that's how I practice!

I gave myself some Tarot homework this week because every time I turn on TV these days, Friends is on. It never ends, and if you are still watching at the start of the next episode you can't get away!  As I found myself falling down the Friends rabbit hole earlier this week I thought I should make the most of it and play Tarot with Friends!

This is a crazy fun Tarot game and you can play alone or with Friends (Ha! LOL!). All you do is sit on your couch, turn on the TV and grab your Tarot cards. Look for cards that represent characters, storylines or locations. Make it harder by using only Court Cards, or Majors or Minors. Experts can use only one suit! Oh! You smarty pants!

I've been watching a lot of Friends lately so I thought I'd double up and so I give you a Major Arcana card and Court Card for each of our favourite TV Friends! 

 

Let's start with Ross... He's a total dork, a serious loser and a lot of people who've watched this show kind of can't stand him. I don't mind him, he's just a total Dinosaur geek right? So who better in the Major Arcana to represent a Dino Geek than the Hermit? Sure, the Hermit is usually a hell of a lot wiser than a guy like Ross. He mostly relies on book smarts to get by and rarely shows any 'wisdom'. But perhaps he's like a young Hermit. In like, 40 years or something, maybe he'll be wise. Ross is totally the King of Swords. He's all intellect and not so great with his heart, passion or earthly stuff, although Dinosaurs come from the Earth, hrmmmm. But books and History facts are his thing, which makes him a Swords guy. A very different version of the King of Swords than Eric Northman, he's probably more Page of Swords because he's kind of clueless and immature, but maybe he's just still growing into his King of Swords boots.

Ross Friends

 

Phoebe is a real mystery and a mixed bag. She doesn't totally fit into any of the archetypes of the Tarot that easily, but she's definitely got a whole heap of Moon qualities. Mystery alone makes her a Moon chic. She's a total space cadet with a deep hidden past - she mugged people as a kid and has even alluded to being secretly married in the Las Vegas episode. The Queen of Wands is Phoebe's court card. She's fiery, passionate, super confident (but not very musical!) and always sticks up for herself and her friends. Remember that episode where she was catering a wake with Monica? Monica was too soft to ask the widow for her money and Phoebe just walked right in there in a middle of the widow singing a show tune and demanded that they get paid! Woah, that's what a little Wands energy can do!

Phoebe Friends

 

And Joey is the Fool. Obviously. He's a kind hearted guy with not a lot going on upstairs, bless his cotton socks. Just like the Fool in the Tarot who is so in awe of life and a believer in all things good in the world, Joey steps off the cliff into the unknown every time he leaves the apartment because he always forgets what he went out for. In the Court Cards Joey is the Knight of Wands, mostly because he always acts first and thinks later, a pretty common Wands thing. He follows his passion, rocks up to audition after audition looking for his big break, but retaining his cool the whole time. His quick mouth often gets him into trouble, but because most of what comes out is completely Fool-like and innocent everyone just loves him even more. Nawww.

Joey Friends Pineapple

 

Moving onto Rachel and I cast her as the Empress. She's creative, easy going, looks after everyone and is a bit of a mother hen, especially to the boys. Monica thinks she is, but Rachel really tucks everyone under her wing whenever they need it. She's sweet and lovely and is pretty obsessed with the idea of creating an awesome life for herself. Empresses don't always have to be 'mothers' in the literal sense, but they do have a gorgeous nurturing vibe and if they're not giving birth to babies, they need to be giving birth to something else! Rachel is also the Queen of Cups. She's kind and intuitive and one of the things that her Empress is always trying to 'create' is the perfect love affair. Because the truth is, love makes this friend's world go round. Like a lot of Cups people who desire romance with all their heart, being single is even harder for them than for us Swords, Pents or Wands peeps.

Rachel Friends

 

Chandler, what a joker! His witty one liners give us a giggle, but in terms of plot, they don't get him very far. This makes Chandler the Hanged Man. If you think about it, Chandler is pretty much everyone else's side kick, and he has no real character development until he hooks up with Monica, which is like, ages later! He basically hangs around shooting out sarcastic remarks for years without anything really happening to him. He's having a great time in that tree, living in NYC, hanging out with friends, but is his career, relationship or life really going anywhere?! I've also made Chandler the Knight of Pentacles. He seems like an earthy kind of dude, much more than most of the characters in this show. Chandler may be a joker, but there's a real sense from him even at the start of the first series that all he really desires in life is a a good job with a decent salary, a pretty wife and a couple of kids. He's not into saving the world, he just wants to enjoy his world.

Chandler Friends

 

And Monica is the High Priestess. Not, in this case, because she's particularly intuitive, but because she's a little on her high horse at times. She thinks she's the High Priestess, the Queen of the apartment block, a little high and mighty. She doesn't do it on purpose, that's just how she is. She likes things a certain way and expects everyone else to just be OK with that. She's not big on compromise, and sees the world in black and white, she doesn't really do grey. Monica is the Queen of Pentacles too. She's the Queen who thinks her apartment and her space is her palace. She likes having nice things around her, good food (oh! Hello catering business!) and she likes to look nice too. She looks after her money and spends carefully, but is more likely to spend money on something nice for the apartment than a new pair of boots.

Monica Geller Friends
