Christian Witch Tarot or Oracle Spread

Christian Witch Tarot Spread

My post WTF is a Christian Witch has been viewed nearly 20k times this last year. It’s amazing to me how many people out there are vibing with this idea of being both a little bit witchy and a little bit Jesus-y.

I mostly just wrote that post as a way to process some of my own thoughts on the topic, so it’s kind of amazing to see just how many people resonated with it!

It was kind of a big deal to come out on the internet and tell everyone I’m a Christian Witch. Many of us are still hiding out a little bit, and that’s totally OK. Some of us are in the church, some of us are in covens, some of us (like me) have wondered off both paths and begun creating some weird winding path that goes between the two.

It can be a tricky path to navigate. The peeps on each side tend not to really get your other side.

And as someone who digs both the world of woo and witchcraft as well as being a bit of a Jesus freak it can be tough trying to blend your belief systems and make it work in a way that doesn’t feel conflicting.

So I made this tarot or oracle spread to help anyone who identifies as a Christian Witch, Christo-Pagan, whatever you want to call yourself or anyone who has a blended belief system to help you get a little more centred in your own beliefs and how to stand strong in who you are and what you believe.

You can use tarot, oracle, angel cards, or you could even try out your Jesus deck! :D

1. Where you're at on your Christian Witch journey

This is really just a check-in point to see how things are going for you on your personal magical path of faith.

2. How to stand strong in your own personal belief system

It is not always easy to stand in your power when your beliefs don’t fit in with what everyone else is doing, the message here will help you to know what you need to do to stay strong and grounded in your own truth and love.

3. How to honour and connect with the Goddess/Divine Feminine

You can specifically call in your deity of choice here (perhaps a message from Mother Mary or Mary Magdalene) or simply call on the divine mother. This card may show you how to honour and connect or may even give you some guidance as how to work with this energy too.

4. How to honour and connect with Jesus/Divine Masculine

Call on JC or a masculine energy of your choice. This card may also offer you some guidance when it comes to embodying the divine masculine in your own life.

5. How to find peace in your own heart

Something many of us Christian Witches struggle with is just feeling like we’re on the right path (for us!) and all is well. This card will give you some insight into how to trust and rest in your own heart space and faith.

6. How to connect deeper through prayer and/or spell work

Here you’ll receive some guidance about how to connect even deeper with your path through prayer or spell work. You may see here a way to connect deeper, something to focus on or even your next step.

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.

Tarot + Oracle Reading for Yourself | When your reading is negative or scary

Tarot and Oracle Reading for Yourself - When your reading is negative or scary

We’ve all experienced it.

You turn over the Tower, or the Devil, or the Ten of Swords and you have that little (or, OK, sometimes big!) freak out.

Your heart starts beating, your head starts spinning with possibilities about what this means, what bad thing is going to happen, and from that place it’s virtually impossible to bring yourself back into an empowered state where you can look at your cards from a higher perspective.

Recently I’ve had a number of people contact me about readings they have done for themselves which haven’t felt good.

And because I know this is a thing that happens to many of us when we read for ourselves, I thought I’d sit down and let you know some of my thoughts on this.

My work is all about helping you to tune into your own guidance and so I hope this post can help you empower yourself and use your cards as a tool to help you move into the life of your dreams!

Your intuition + guidance is never going to “scare” you

Most of the time when we get that scary feeling during a reading, it’s not our Higher Self, Guides, Angels or inner knowing we are connecting with. It’s plain old ego-fear.

It’s thousands of years of conditioning that make us see images like the Devil (which is an image of the Pagan nature God Pan that the church made “evil” BTW) as evil, bad, negative and scary. We’ve been conditioned to fear Death. We live in a society (here in the west anyway!) where we rarely talk about or think about what happens after we die. We put it out of our minds and go about our days ignoring our own mortality. So it’s no wonder that when Death comes up we freak a little! Other cultures and people who are on the spiritual path find the Death card less scary, some people have no problem with it all! But generally, we fear change and we fear the unknown, this is deeply ingrained into us on a collective level.

So if you find those images scary, take a deep breath, you’re just the product of thousands of years of control, manipulation and disconnect from the spiritual.

OK, where was I? Yes, your guidance isn’t going to scare you.

If you are working with Angels or Spirit Guides or Ascended Masters or any other beings of light, they are literally never going to give you any guidance through a reading that would make you afraid. They are here to support you, to help you move through your physical human life with as much ease, grace, love and abundance as possible. Why the heck would your guardian angel pop in and freak you out? If it’s scary, it’s not from them. Same goes for your Higher Self and any other beings you work with.

Scary = not from your Guides and Angels

Usually the fear stuff is created in our own mind. Those cards bring our subconscious fears to the surface. We can choose to look at this as an opportunity to learn from and move through those fears when this happens. Or, if you’re not ready for that, or if you’re too freaked out in the moment, put the cards back, go do something else, smudge yourself if you like, and try again later.

Very occasionally negative energies can come through in our readings. I had this happen once and it was kinda creepy, but a good learning opportunity! You can avoid this by learning how to ground, clear and protect your energy.

Remember you have free will and create your own fate

We have been so programmed to believe that tarot and other forms of divination are “fortune telling tools”. But the only future the cards can show us is a potential one.

I only ever read for potential outcomes. In a reading I will say to you - this is potentially how this could go. But you have free will, you have the power to make changes to this if you don’t like the way things are looking.

You don’t need to be a psychic to work out how things are probably going to go. If you keep messing around with that guy/gal who’s treating you badly, what do you think is going to happen? If you hate your job, but you make no attempt to make things better or get a new job, what do you think is going to happen?

Most of the time predictive readings give us an opportunity to consider the path we are on, and they actually can, if we let them, empower us to make better choices for ourselves.

Predictive readings do however have the danger of becoming self-fulfilling if we don’t see them as simply one potential outcome.

There are of course some things in life we can’t control. It’s at those times we are called to look within and make our own choices for how we handle those things.

Reading “negative” cards in positive ways

This is something that comes up a lot for people. I had someone just last week ask me about a card in a reading using the New Year Spread. This person had pulled the Five of Swords as her theme of the year.

You can look at this in two ways - first off, that this is going to be a shitty year. There’s going to be lots of people around who want to take your stuff, take advantage of you, you’re going to lose, be a loser and end up crying on the beach. OR you can look at this is a message about standing in your power, not taking any shit, having strong healthy clear boundaries. That’s much more empowering right? This could be the year you begin to stand up for yourself, speak your truth (swords are all about truth!) and really stand in your power. Boom!

You can do this with any of the cards you feel are “negative”. Flip them to the positive of that card. Ten of Swords? The worst is now over! Two of Swords? Surrender and trust! Five of Pentacles? Finally see the truth of your financial situation, paying off debts and getting your money stuff sorted! See how that feels different?

Those are just some examples, make up your own! It may be a fun activity to go through your deck and write down a positive word or phrase for each card, especially the “negative” ones.

What to do next

So if you’re having a freak out, or feeling like your reading is negative and feeling bummed, here’s a couple of things you can do:

  • Journal. Journal out all the feelings your having about this reading, you may find that actually it’s helping you see something really important or that it’s not so negative after all!

  • Ask a friend for a second opinion. If you have card slinging friends send them a WhatsApp. Or come into the free Spiritual Journey Pitstop group and share your reading for some advice from a bunch of high vibe souls.

  • Put the cards back in the deck, shuffle and pop it on your altar, under a crystal, out in the sunlight, moonlight or whatever feels good. Give it and yourself a smudge or a spray with some essential oils and go do something else that will lift your spirits. Watch your fave TV show, play some peppy music or make tea.

  • If you are reading on something quite big and it’s knocked you for six, get a professional reader to take a look. You can get a reading with me or any other reader you vibe with and see what they can pick up for you. Sometimes we are just too close and too emotionally connected to see clearly.

  • Give yourself a break. I’ve been reading professionally for years now, but there are still moments I turn over a card and gives me that moment of “urgh, whyyy?” But the more I’ve worked with my cards, the more I know now how the universe speaks to me. Most of the time when I pull the Tower it means clean the office, sort out your closet, get to inbox zero. When I pull the Devil it can just mean I’m not eating well enough or checking my phone too much!

It’s time we started reading our cards in a more empowered way, take back our power and create our own fate.

I hope this post helps you to feel more confident in reading for yourself. Let me know in the comments if you have questions, I always check these weekly so I will get back to you. :)

With so much love, light and empowered reading,

Solstice Tarot Spread for Transformation

Solstice spread for transformation (2).png

Wherever you are, whether you are moving into light or dark, the solstice is a powerful time for transformation.

The solstice marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next. It’s a time when the earth shifts, and when the planet you live on is in shift, it’s going to have an affect on you too!

I love the solstice as a time of reflection, of looking back at the cycle that was and honouring my journey from there to here. I think about what I want to let go of, what I want to release and what I want to call in as we move into the new cycle.

The solstice is the in-between, we are no longer in the energy of the old cycle and we have not yet started the new, and that’s a powerful time to consider your own transformation, to honour who you’ve been and who you are becoming!

You can use this spread at the winter or summer solstice and you can use any cards you have, tarot, oracle, angel, Uno, whatever! :)

Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you share your reading so I can come say hey and if you want to share your readings come join us in the Spiritual Journey Pitstop group on Facebook!

Card four: The key to your transformation

What is the thing that will help you unlock this transformation and move into the new?

Card five: Inner transformation

What within you is transforming? This could be anything from mindset, beliefs, old ways of being and seeing yourself, or it could be something else shifting in your energy.

Card six: Outer transformation

What outer transformation is taking place? How will others see you differently? What is changing in your outside world?

Card seven: How to embody this transformation

Going through a big transformation is not easy, and you may need to take some time to adjust to the new energies. This card will give you some insight on how you can begin to anchor this transformation and all it brings with it into your being.

With so much love, light and solstice blessings for transformation!

New Mercury Retrograde Tarot Spread

Mercury Retrograde Spread

Happy Mercury Retrograde gorgeous souls!

And yes, I do mean that!

We live in a fast paced world where we hustle and grind ourselves into the ground on a daily basis.

While Mercury Retrograde can put a spanner in the works, it also helps us to ease off the gas pedal, review what we’ve been doing with our energy and our life.

It’s a time to withdraw, go within, do some of that inner work, think about what you really want for your life moving forward and without the opportunity to do that, we can spend our whole lives hustling for we don’t even know what!

In my experience bitching and moaning at the planets doesn’t make anything easier. Letting yourself go with the flow, following the call of Mercury when it asks us to slow down and think about things, there is big magic in this!

So my lovelies, pick up a deck (tarot, oracle or whatever you have to hand) and take some time to slow down, go within and consider what’s in alignment with your life and what isn’t any more…

1. The energy you bring to this MR

This card will tell you where you are at as you move into this Mercury Retrograde. This is a chance to identify if you’re bringing some negative vibes in which could be transmuted into something more positive, or it will let you know you are ready to do the work!

2. How MR will potentially affect you

I say potentially here because we always have the power to change how we see things. If this card comes up negative you have the power to change it!

3. Inner work that needs doing

MR is a great time to focus on going within. Let this card show you what you most need to focus on at this time.

4. How to rest + slow down

How can you rest and slow down, not just during MR but in life in general?

5. What to re-evaluate

This card will show you what you need to re-evaluate in your life right now.

6. What to re-think

A chance here to see what you may to re-think. Sometimes our goals and dreams are no longer in alignment and this card can give us some insight into that.

7. How to navigate through this time with ease + grace

And here’s a message for you about how you can best move through this time with as much ease and grace as is possible. x
