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 – Old robes vs Kardashian wardrobes

photo 1 (7)

Another weekly reading brought to you by the suit of coins. Sorry! Last week we had the lovely tea and chat with the angels, but guess what? It’s back to being kicked in the butt – no cookies on the table today!

So the question this week is – are we spending money in alignment with our higher selves? I bought some clothes on ASOS the other day, maybe I didn’t really need them. Maybe I should be living a holy life in scratchy robes and old sandals. Argh! But we can’t live in robes and sandals on this planet right now, not unless we go off the grid at least. In my life right now I live in a city and I work in a public place and there’s a dress code. I’m not even allowed to wear sandals.

So where do we draw the line between dressing like a monk and spending like a Kardashian? How do we know how much is OK and how much is too much? Obviously our bank accounts can give us some advice about that, but using how much is in your bank account to gauge how much you can spend leads you to doing what I did last month – nearly hitting zero!

So the real question here is how do we get into alignment with ‘good’ spending?! Right, let’s pull another card…

photo 2 (8)

Looks like we need to put our purchases on the metaphorical scale of spending Justice!

Imagine on one side of the scale sits your glowing gorgeous higher self (a mini version, obviously your higher self is bigger than can fit on a scale!) and on the other put your purchases. Do they balance out? Is your ASOS shopping spree too heavy?! Is your once a month 50p charity shop buy a little too light?!

We can also think of our higher self as a ‘person’ and ask them what they think of our purchases too – hold up that shirt to your higher self in the changing room and see if she/he nods or shakes her/his head. Before clicking on ‘purchase’ look over at your higher self standing over by the pot plant, are they giving you that look? Or are they nodding with approval – after all your higher self wants you to feel good right?! It’s OK to buy stuff that will make you feel good, but spending money on crap you don’t even like doesn’t make you feel good!

Put your purchases on the scale and see how they line up this week! I’d love to know if this resonates and works for you guys and I’ll be reporting back on my progress at this at the end of the week! 🙂

In other weekly news – I still have loads of free 3 card readings to give away so hook it up if you haven’t already! I’ve finally put up a page of Praise featuring some of the amazing and wonderful feedback I’ve had so far and I’ve started putting up some links to some of the amazing people out in the world who have helped me so much on my journey so far, check them out! One of whom is the lovely Louise Androlia who I met yesterday at her wonderful double energy + surrender workshop which I’ll be blogging about in the next few days. 🙂

Love, light and weighing in the spending!

#Caturday cat cards – Two of Pentacles

photo (41)

This #Caturday we come across this guy who’s doing a bit of a juggling act. This kitty is holding onto two coins and seems kind of unaware of the sea and ships behind him. He’s got lots on his mind trying to keep those two coins from falling, you can’t totally blame him for not seeing what else is going on around him.

We might be doing our own little juggling act this weekend. I’m sick with a cold which totally sucks and I kind of feel like this kitty right now – I’m trying to rest and get better but there’s so many other things I’m thinking about!

This kitty is a message for us today to focus on one thing at a time, whether it’s resting when you are sick, putting away your phone when you’re on a date or out with friends, or even – and this is something I always do – checking the IMDB app on your phone while watching a movie. I mean do you really have to know what that guy is from?! Can’t you just enjoy the movie and look it up later? At the very least, pause the movie while you do it!

If you’re super busy this weekend and don’t even have time for a movie then you can also make a to do list. It sounds seriously lame, but I swear by them (when I actually do them!). It’s a good quick way to work out which jobs are important, what can wait, and when you tick everything off you have the rest of the day to yourself instead of procrastinating about everything and still having to do it all tomorrow.

On another note, I haven’t been able to do any free readings in the last few days and I know there’s a couple waiting in my inbox. Hopefully my head will be clearer tomorrow or at least by Monday so you should get your reading then if you are waiting, I apologise for the delay! If you would like a free reading please go to 100 Free Readings and sign up. Simple as that! I’ve been really thrilled at the response so far and so thankful for the wonderful feedback. 🙂

Love, light and putting your phone down!

Matthew McConaughey – Page of Swords

phonto (5)

I can’t be the only person to ever have been taken aback by the striking resemblance between the Page of Swords and Matthew McConaughey, can I? It’s insanely obvious, and if you didn’t think it was insanely obviously, after reading this post you just may never be able to look at the Page of Swords the same way again!

I was working through The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot with my brand new Rider Waite/Pamela Coleman Smith deck when I had the epiphany. The first exercise in the book goes along the lines of looking at the cards and imagining you are like, inside the card. It’s an awesome way to spend an afternoon, but when I got to the Page of Swords all I could see was Matthew McConaughey. My intuition had clearly gone for a coffee, because seriously, WTF does Matthew McConaughey have to do with anything?!! And every time I see this card all I see is still Matthew McConaughey!

11495-23772

Eventually instead of trying to convince my brain that this card has nothing to do with Matthew McConaughey I wondered if maybe I should try to work out what Matthew McConaughey does have to do with this card.

So I sat down and watched my all time favourite Matthew McConaughey movie; Contact. Released in 1997, written by Carl Sagan who wrote the book, directed by Robert Zemeckis and Jodie Foster wearing Mom jeans, there’s seriously nothing it doesn’t have going for it. I’m probably starting to sound like some kind of member of the Matthew McConaughey fandom – I’m really not, but I am a HUGE fan of the movie Contact. If you haven’t seen it and you are into stuff about the universe, outer space and are basically human you will probably love it. The premise is that Jodie Foster is a scientist and she’s searching for messages from aliens basically, and along comes MM playing some kind of priest with a thousand theology degrees who constantly plays devil’s advocate with Jodie Foster in this movie…

Oh wait a second… devil’s advocate? A guy who always takes the higher ground, he’s written a best seller and can totally hold his own in a conversation about God and the universe so he must be intelligent, he’s a student of theology, and he’s super fit and active – hello traditional meanings! MM spends the whole movie trying to convince Jodie Foster there is a God, he’s always arguing his point, talking to her like she’s his congregation and taking off his shirt. There’s even a couple of scenes in the movie where he’s bringing her some important news too!

(OK, so I’m not really talking about Matthew McConaughey. I’m talking about the character in this movie – Joss Palmer. But if I had named this post – Joss Palmer – Page of Swords it wouldn’t have quite had the same ring to it.)

This guy sounds kind of annoying, but he’s not a bad guy, he’s super charismatic, he just has opinions about stuff and thinks his opinions are right. Well, don’t we all think our opinions are right? He doesn’t sugar coat or mince words, he just tells it like it is. He’s so Swords right now!

Seriously, just go watch the movie. Even if you think what I’m talking about here is nuts, it’s a great movie anyway!

And stay tuned for more court cards coming to life through pop culture!

Love, light and Matthew McConaughey tarot look-a-likes,

The coolest Tarot cards of the 1980’s

Tarot cards are so art, and nothing is cooler than 80’s art. Except 80’s art on tarot cards! Woah! Imagine sitting down to get your reading and your psychic is dressed in an 80’s gypsy outfit and pulls out a deck of 80’s tarot cards… hey, I think I’m seeing my future career calling – 80’s tarot readings by the new age hipster, leave your iPhones at the door!

So what deck are we using? Oh how about the Cosmic Tarot from 1986? I mean check out those earrings. This deck is going for about a tenner + postage at Amazon.

who are they 2

Or maybe the 1983 Karma Tarot is more your thing… What is even happening here? Who cares, it’s 80’s! It’s rad! And it’s only about £10 from Amazon too!

KT_8_Wands_large

OK those cards are pretty and all, but they just don’t have enough 80’s hair, and let’s face it, the only reason you want a pack of 80’s tarot cards is for the hair. Well kid you’re in luck! The Art Nouveau Tarot from 1989 is just young enough to remember good hair.

d02437h4

Oh such pretty hair Ken! But wait, Matt Myers didn’t stop there! He actually gave his King of Coins a perm-y mullet thing. Like, WOW.

“You will meet a man with 80’s hair.” = Best fortune ever.

It’s just a damn shame these cards cost like £60 used. SAD!

d02437dK

The Yeager Tarot from 1982 is pretty totally awesome too. Blue horses and whatever else is happening in that picture makes me want it! £20 + postage!

??????????

And introducing – the amazing Medicine Woman Tarot! It’s so earthy and rainbows! Eeee!

MedicineWoman3001

OK, that’s enough goofing around, let’s get onto the two decks that are at the top of my Amazon wish list, and yes I know Amazon is bad right now, but I have to keep track of my wishes somewhere. I promise to buy them from an independent retailer if I can. One of these two has to be a pay day purchase for sure!

The Voyager Tarot deck from 1986. It’s basically a collage deck and it’s amazing. I mean look at this kid. As if you don’t wanna pull that in a reading!?

learner

And I’ve saved the most bizarre tarot deck of the 1980’s for last, and it could well be my favourite. It’s called the Morgan Robbins Tarot deck from 1984, it’s not coloured in, but it is amazing. 

morgans-04342

Be sure to follow me on instagram at newagehipster333 to check out my posts of these cards as soon as I get them! Wheeeeee!!

Love, light and time travelling tarot!
