Indiana Jones – Knight of Wands

phonto (31)

He comes riding in on his horse to steal the golden crucifix because ‘it belongs in a museum’! Here is your Knight in shining armour – the star of the Adventure genre!

Wands are the action cards and this Knight will do anything but sit at home like a potato on the couch. He has a day job but his evenings are spent researching, working or doing physical training while his weekends are mad adrenaline packed adventures! Relationships aren’t really his forte, but that doesn’t mean his heart isn’t as good as gold, he’s just busy looking for ancient artifacts, try not to take it personally. I’m sure you are pretty, but you aren’t the Holy Grail.

409135-indiana-jones-indiana-jones-and-the-last-crusade-wallpaper-6

His relationships with his family can be difficult, mostly because he doesn’t stick around long enough to actually deal with any issues, not because he doesn’t love them to bits really and he’d lay down his life to protect those he loves.

He’s a quick mover, but he rides with purpose and in the direction of his goal. If you look at the other Knights in the tarot (we’ll get to those guys I promise!) you’ll see none of them has the same level of determination as this fiery, passionate Knight! He protects the realm, and he won’t budge on what he believes to be good and right.

If you are in a relationship with this Knight, go easy on him. He’s got a lot going on in that gorgeous head of his. He’s got mysteries to solve and adventures to have and a nagging partner is going to send this guy packing quicker than you say ‘ultimatum’. He’s looking for an equal – someone who can share his adventures but also be just as content out having their own adventures!

If this card comes up in a reading for yourself it could be time to get a little more adventurous. Instead of planning another beach holiday look into volunteering in South America, or taking a vacay in the Amazon Rainforest! Shake up your life a little when you’re in a rut and this card comes up. Do something crazy. Go out for impromptu mid-week drinks or say yes to that date with the weird guy.

This card tells you to channel your inner Indiana and re-ignite your passion! What are you really passionate about? Is there a cause or charity you want to advocate for? Are you passionate about the environment, history, spirituality, cup cakes?! Whatever it is, stick a stick under it and set it on fire!

Reversed this card can mean either Indiana Jones gone bad, or it could be a suggestion for you to calm down a little. Reversed the Knight of Wands suggests you need to find balance, or relates to someone who is unbalanced and flaky.

Adventures are great, but even Indiana Jones has a day job.

There are so many ways to read the tarot cards, and this is just one interpretation that works for me. I’d love to hear about how you read the Knight of Wands when it comes up for you in a reading.🙂

Love, light and archaeological adventures!

The Week Ahead – Just Walk Away!

photo (54)

Hey hipsters! Welcome to another week ahead reading! It’s been a HUGE week for me – I’ve been training to get my Angel Card Reader Certification with Doreen Virtue! WOWZERS! If you fancy an angel card reading from me you can check out my Etsy store, or keep your eye on my Facebook page. The other day I was on FB and bored and had my cards out so I randomly started giving out free messages – it could happen again! 

When I met Doreen Virtue at the book signing she told me I had ‘so many fairies’ around me. Now that was kind of surprising because although I’ve been trying for ages to make deals with the fairies – I recycle more and eat less meat, you gift me some cash – I haven’t exactly been that successful at it. But nevertheless, after she told me that I did have fairies I went marching straight up to the store and grabbed the last deck of ‘Magical Messages from the Fairies‘. And so this week our message comes courtesy of the fairies!

Walk away‘. It’s pretty self explanatory really, but you might want to take a little time to work out exactly what you need to walk away from in your life right now. I really don’t think this card is telling us all to quit our day jobs and run off to live in a fairy kingdom. It’s about being able to walk away from that which no longer serves us. I really think this week it’s not just about doing a detox – friends that bring us down, a job that seriously sucks, a bad habit (spending way too much money on oracle decks?!), a shitty relationship or whatever it is. This week we are being called to work out the difference between going through stuff that will help us grow and walking away from that which is stunting us.

Sometimes we put so much emphasis into ‘fixing’ things that aren’t really right for us; a relationship, a house, a job. We try to force things into being what we want them to be and often feel like ‘walking away’ is a cop out. The easy way out. The fairies are telling us this week sometimes it’s OK to end a relationship that isn’t working, making plans to leave an OK but fulfilling job we’ve been in for years, or selling or moving a house that isn’t a good fit. Sometimes staying in a situation is the cop out, right? This can also refer to your own emotional crap too. I know for me the emotional crap I need to let go of is my total lack of self-confidence. No matter how many people tell me my tarot and angel readings are spot on and amazing I still have that feeling of ‘who am I to do this stuff?’ Well this week I’m going to try to change that to ‘who am I not to?’ And who are you not to be the best you can be?!

Is there a situation you are staying in simply for fear of being a cop out if you walk away? Or a mindset that no longer serves you? Have a think about it this week and on Monday it’s the full moon! A perfect time to do some manifestation work – work out what you really want and what you need to let go of in order to make that thing happen!

I’m sending so much love, light and fairy lights to all those who pass this way,

The week ahead – Where are you going?!

photo (51)

A little late with the week ahead – please forgive me! But like I said on #Caturday whenever you see this post is whenever you are meant to see it, divine timing and all that. Anyway, to celebrate that I got my new Doreen Virtue Guardian Angel Tarot deck, that I just gave away a bunch of free readings and that I’m going to be studying with Doreen in London this week I’m using the new deck! This deck is so sweet and cute and vintage and glittery and I’ll do a deck review on YouTube if people want that?! Just shout at me on Facebook about what you want to see on YouTube, and even on this blog!

This week I pulled the Six of Thought, which is based on the Six of Swords. It’s the boat card, the water taxi, the asylum seekers, the looking for greener pastures card. It can be a metaphorical boat or literally that you are travelling across the sea… but what does it mean for us right now this week? It’s not like we’re all going on a cruise.

OK, so when I pulled it I got a real sense of knowing where we are going, or rather, making sure we do know where we are going. We have the boat, we have the oars, but do we know where the hell we are heading? It’s time to get clear about the destination and this card and the Angels are telling us to really look at our maps this week. Are we heading in the right direction? Have we veered off course a little? Is our heart telling us to change direction but we’re still sailing towards something else?

This week ask yourself these two questions:

❤ where are you heading?

❤ where do you want to be heading?

If you get the same answers to both questions you’re on your way – keep on sailing sailor! But if you’re drifting towards someplace else  get out your oars and start rowing!

You have the boat and you have the power to steer it in anyway you choose, so where are you rowing your boat to?

Don’t know where the hell you are going? Well (prepare for shameless promotion!) I have posted a bunch of readings on my new Etsy store including the Life Purpose reading! Yay! It’s NewAgeHipsterStore and it just opened yesterday! OMG Amazement! If there’s nothing on there for you but you’d still like a reading just email me, I’m vix@newagehipster.co and we can discuss alternative options. And right now I’m offering 25% discount on any Angel readings with the code ANGELS so get angel-ing if you feel called to do so!

Sending love, light and good solid oars to all who pass this way,

#Caturday cat card – Knave (Page) of Wands + Giveaway winners!

photo (49)

Happy (late!) Caturday everyone! Now before you freak out that you are reading this on a Sunday or any other day for that matter – remember #Caturday is not just for Saturday! This post and card is for you for whenever you read it, just like everything else on this blog is.

I had soooo much trouble getting the #Caturday video done this week. I’m wondering if it’s because I did it outside and there was some elemental (fairy?!) force at play screwing around with my tech. Those fairies sure are jokers! But I got it done eventually and in it I talk about the cat card for this week; the Knave (aka the Page) of Wands!

The kitty Knave of Wands is super sure of himself and totally confident in his life. He’s confident at both work and at play. I love the pyramids in the Wands cards, they always make me think of adventure and this kitty remains confident even when he’s in the middle of a desert in Egypt! Wow, way to be awesome out of your comfort zone kitty!

Is there something you’ve been wanting to do or sign up for that you haven’t because you just aren’t feeling that comfortable about it? A crazy new dance class? What about learning Old Norse? Joining a meet up group or just going out for dinner on your own? Whatever it is this kitty tells you – GO FOR IT! All you need to do is stand up straight and be confident, because you can do these things, and we all know that getting outside of your comfort zone is when truly awesome things happen.

For me doing these YouTube videos is so waaaaay out of my comfort zone, but I do really feel like I’m supposed to share this stuff and what better way is there to share a message than through the mighty power of YouTube?

The winners of the Guardian Angel Tarot giveaway! *Drum roll….* are: @Oracle_aimee, @annamichaelis21 and Maureen Ricketts! You guys will be getting a mini 3 card reading with the new Doreen deck! Whoop! I pulled a couple of runners up for a free one card reading and they are: @thetarotinitiate and @rhythm12! Email me, I’m vix@newagehipster.co for your prize and watch the video above if you want to see me literally pull your name out of a cat hat!

I will be doing lots of free readings as I get going with my business so keep an eye on the Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.

In other news I’m going to be studying with the amazing Doreen Virtue this week at her London Angel Card Certification course! OMG SO MUCH EXCITE! To celebrate this I’m going to be opening my Etsy store with some super bargains on Angel readings so that I can raise enough money to pay for another angel course which I’m feeling guided to do! Can’t. stop. doing. angel. courses… I’ll let you all know everywhere when the shop is up! Hey, there’s me getting out of my comfort zone again! Boom!

Love, light and late #Caturdays!

The Week Ahead – Embrace your inner awesome chic (+homework)

photo (47)

Hello Happy Hipsters! Welcome to this week! Oh, here’s a thing – just because this post is was posted on a certain day about a certain week, that doesn’t mean that it can’t relate to you where you are right now – whether it’s next week, next month next year or years from now when you’re stumbling across this post. Yes, I am very hopefully this blog will last for years! If you feel like this message is for you – it is for you. And that’s not just about this post, or this blog, this is about anything you find anywhere anytime.

This week we have the beautiful Empress from the Cosmic Tarot. I love the Empress card already – she’s number 3 which is a number I totally resonate with (that’s why all the 3’s on my Facebook and Instagram and Twitter accounts!) and she’s just an awesome woman who’s totally embracing her chic power!

OK so this week’s message is actually an activity! OMG I love activities! I hope you do too… now you can use your journal and go crazy with this, or you can just think about your answers as you read, or both, or you can make a collage or do a painting or make a video or whatever the hell you feel like!

Think of an awesome chic – the first awesome chic you can think of; celeb or real, and dudes this will work for you too so keep going!

❤ List at least three things that make this chic awesome

❤ List at least three things you have in common with this awesome chic

❤ Now what’s one thing you can do right now to be more like this awesome chic? (I’m not suggesting here that you should not be yourself and start acting like Beyonce or whoever, but if there’s something about someone else that you wish you were a bit more like then it’s totally OK to find that thing within yourself right?!)

Here’s my answers…

❤ Think of an awesome chic – the first chic that comes to mind is Cyndi Lauper!

❤ What makes this chic awesome? She totally has her own style, she’s an advocate for LGBT rights, she’s absolutely gorgeous without fitting the normal standard of beauty.

❤ Three things we have in common – sometimes we have orange hair, we both love singing, and we have both been known to dance on trash cans.

❤ One thing I can do right now to be more like Cyndi Lauper – embrace my weirdness.

So this week I’m embracing my weirdness! I’d love to know what message you all got from your inner awesome chic!🙂

Love, light and embracing your inner awesome!

Non-Negotiables

Scrolling through my Facebook feeds these last few days I keep coming across Louise Androlia’s 10 Non-Negotiables. She asked on FB what our non-negotiables are and I realised I didn’t really have any… Yikes! So I made some and I hope these inspire you to make your own!🙂

❤ Wear whatever I want to wear.

I don’t buy into fashion and fads unless I love it – hello neon yellow. Clothing and style is self-expression and although we have to dress ‘appropriately’ at times, we can still do that in the confines of dressing creatively. You can wear hot pink to the office, and sequin plimsolls are always cool even though they kind of blind people in the street. Oh yeah, but this also comes with not judging others for what they wear too!

10563124_694846903929371_8120980957554205401_n

❤ Be alone

As some kind of introvert I need alone time. I’m not talking about like hours spent in a cave, but more like taking a long shower, or enjoying the alone-ness on the drive to work. Even shopping alone counts as alone time right?

❤ Spend money on that which I value

I’m working on this! It’s super important to me and I’m doing OK. I’m trying really hard to make sure I question my purchases and weigh up the value before hitting buy, but I still have lapses… I probably have lapses on everything on this list, but that’s OK because I’m human…

photo 1 (5)

❤ Remember – It’s OK because you are human…

This one is about not beating myself up for doing ‘human things’ like spending too much at Topshop or rolling my eyes at fellow motorists.

❤ …But always try to be better

Learn from my mistakes and every day try to be a better person than I was yesterday, like consciously try not to roll my eyes at motorists or spend too much at Topshop.

❤ Be kind

Always be kind, especially to the people who make your coffee. And be kind to animals, even if you don’t like spiders try not to kill them.

❤ Live with a grateful heart

I try to make gratitude lists but I’m not that good at keeping the routine. So instead I try to live with a grateful heart in every moment in every day. OK so sometimes that’s hard, especially when someone is on your back or pissing you off… but there is always something to be grateful for, even if it’s just tea, or trees or being alive. When drinking a cup of tea I often mentally think – ‘I love tea!’ and doing that all day about everything is a pretty nice way to go about your day.

❤ Feel joy!

As a 3 life path my life purpose is to be in joy and spread joy so having fun, being silly and enjoying life is totally non-negotiable!

❤ Not apologising for who I am

I’m not sorry I’m a nerd, geek, weirdo, dress like a teenager, tarot reader, angel communicator, wannabe YA fiction author, 80’s enthusiast, karaoke queen, pole dancer, not a natural redhead, tree hugger, Unicorn lover, Jesus crusher (I mean I have a Jesus crush right, not that I actually would crush him), star person, possible Atlantean, incarnated angel and part elemental, not really cool enough to be an actual hipster even though I call this page new age hipster, and I like Taylor Swift. #sorrynotsorry!

10421145_672435309503864_7327334543913971743_n

❤ Connecting with the ‘divine’

Every day I do something to connect with God/Universe/Whatever you want to call it. Whether it’s Tarot, pulling an Angel card, having a chat with whoever’s around me from the light while I’m getting ready for my day, oh – and always asking for protection and getting in my golden bubble!

1504095_695334430547285_3327566160890095655_n

OK, now it’s your turn! What things are non-negotiable for you?!

Love, light and non-negotiable lists!

The Week Ahead – Filling up!

10590413_693867610693967_3602375258438122113_n

OK first of all, let’s talk about my new deck! You know I’m obsessed with buying new decks right now and I need to find a way to control it, but this is a deck I’ve had a crush on for ages! The Art Nouveau Tarot by Matt Meyers from 1989. It’s so 80’s and I’m so in love with it! Maybe I should do a deck review?!

So what’s going on this week? Well this Queen of Cups is different than the usual Rider Waite Queen who stares at her cup almost obsessively. Here we see a much more open Queen who looks like she wants to give us some of her water. But she can’t give us anything if she doesn’t fill her cup first… and that’s the message for this week – we need to fill our cups!

So I’ve been cracking on with these free readings of which I still have nearly a hundred requests waiting for me in my inbox (thanks for your patience!) and although I am loving every minute of it I am totally stressed out that I’m taking too long and letting people down! But I’m getting the message now to slow down and look after myself first. So now I’m trying to do a quick reading for myself before I do readings for anyone else and put my study and practice first rather than as an after thought – you know, thinking I’ll do the stuff for others first then if I’ve got time I’ll do my own stuff.

I did a reading this week in which I saw this woman on a plane with children. I saw her having to put on her own oxygen mask before she assisted others. And that’s so what we are needing to think about this week! You can’t help others if you can’t breathe!

A lot of us right now have a deep desire to help as many people as we can – family, friends, clients, people who read our blogs, whoever we can! We feel like we are never doing enough for others, that we could be doing so much more, and even feeling guilty when we don’t feel like we’re fulfilling our purpose…

 But how can we fulfill anything when we are empty?!

Let’s take a look at this Queen of Cups this week – she’s giving, she’s beautiful, she’s strong and powerful, but if her bowl was empty she wouldn’t be any of these things! (OK, maybe she’d sill be beautiful, she’s practically a Barbie!)

So what can we do this week to fill up?! Well you know I’m seriously into lists right now so here’s some ideas…🙂

❤ Take a bath – Queen of Cups – water – get it?!

❤ Drink tea! Oh we are so on the Cups vibe here…

❤ Take long showers

❤ Buy a new nail polish! Barry M is 3 free and 3 for 2 at Boots right now! Or paint your nails with the polish you already have!

❤ Watch your favourite TV show or a movie and don’t feel guilty for doing it! Imagine sitting on your couch and the Universe is pouring love and light into your head while you zone out!

❤ Get a massage or get someone to give you one, or let the cat walk on your back. Haha!

❤ Get your hair done, or do it yourself!

❤ Make time to read a few chapters from that book on your bedside table

❤ Sit in the sun! (If you have any!)

❤ Have a beer or a wine and don’t feel guilty! I know loads of us these days are all about the clean living, but come on, even Jesus had a tipple!

❤ Spend some time doing some tarot/angel readings for yourself! If you don’t have the cards look for some blogs (like mine! Lol!) or other websites where you can get your fill! I really think that even if you look at old readings online that you can find exactly what you are supposed to in that moment. You might find some old posts on here that make sense to you in the moment!

❤ Take a selfie and revel in the ‘WOW you so PRETTY/SEXY’ comments

❤ Write a list of all your good features

❤ Write a letter to your 12 year old self telling her or him how amazing their life is going to be

❤ Book a holiday or a pretend Pinterest holiday

❤ Make a vision board or do some scrapbooking

❤ Clean out your closet and give old stuff to charity

❤ Make or order your favourite dinner and eat seconds

Dance around your bedroom!

❤ Do whatever you need to do to ‘fill up’!

And once we find the balance between filling up and pouring out we’ll be like those guys who play the bagpipes doing circular breathing; they don’t stop to think about if they are breathing in or out, it just happens.

Love, light and glasses full,

Vix

Lessons from the Louniversity

IMG_4068

When I signed up for Louise Androlia‘s Energy Awareness + Surrender Session double whammy I wasn’t totally sure what to expect, but I’ve been following her blog for a while and reading my Tarotscopes every month so I knew that whatever lessons I was going to learn would be totally on my frequency.

Louise is an energy guru and I was so excited to hear her take on how to work with energy. As an empath – you know, those of us who pick up all the energy crap floating around in the air, I have struggled with being able to block negative energy for years. I’m that kind of person that feels what other people feel… If I’m next to someone on the train who is grumpy, I get grumpy! Don’t even get me started on how it affects me when someone barges past me in the street – it makes me so damn ANGRY! And I’ve only recently realised that it’s not because it really makes me angry, it’s because the person who barges you in the street is generally a very angry person, someone who is angry at life and everything that happens to them… OK, some people do it accidentally but usually they give you a look or say sorry and that’s totally a different thing…

When you live your life this way things can get heavy. Constantly picking up on other people’s energy is sooooo draining and when we feel drained we don’t spend time with friends, we don’t crack on with creative projects and we end up living our lives from home to work to home to TV to dinner to bed to work again…

So what do we do about it?! You can do all the visualisations you’ve read about – the bubble, the mirrors, the cloak. You can buy a bunch of protective crystals – I’ve been wearing a smoky quartz and that seems to help! You can focus your intention – if you begin to be aware of picking up on energy you’re already going to pick up less! But if you are just starting out with this stuff, or if you need a boost to what you are already doing Louise’s energy workshops sure will help!

Being surrounded by a bunch of self aware women looking to add something to their personal and spiritual development all afternoon was in itself inspiring and empowering.  Louise lead us through a bunch of energy awareness exercises and continuously dropped so many enlightening phrases and ideas at us so fast I couldn’t keep up with my notes! Not only did she share her thoughts and visualisations but there was a real sense during the afternoon that we were all there together, learning from each other as much as we were learning from her. We shared our own ideas, concerns and worries about shielding ourselves and it was the perfect supportive forum to be able to ask anything!

IMG_4063

I’m always usually the person up the back of these workshops just chilling, taking notes and keeping to myself, but when Louise asked if anyone wanted to share something they wanted to surrender I felt my hand go up before my brain even thought it was a good idea. I wasn’t worried about what anyone was going to think of me and my thing I wanted to surrender because I knew in that moment in that room I was surrounded only by people who were there to support, uplift and encourage each other on our journeys.

Now not everyone can pop into East London for a weekend workshop, but Louise has a fantastic blog on which she shares so many energetic insights and you can find it here.

And I thought I’d finish up this post by sharing a couple of gems I can almost make out in my notes…

❤ your intention (to protect, clear, ground, whatever!) is powerful!

❤ eat more vegetables to feel grounded – sorry guys, sugar is not grounding!😦

always be in your bubble!

❤ when you are feeling anxious it’s because you are not in the present moment – you are too much in the future or the past.

❤ rejection is redirection!

❤ and if someone has something you want (success for example!), that doesn’t mean there isn’t enough for you too! If they have it, you can have it!

Love, light and lessons from the Louniversity,
