The month of December brings us The Hermit (reversed), The Six of Cups and The Four of Cups (reversed).
In this combination we are told that we’re currently feeling the need to come out of our isolation, to have moments of joy with family and to be open to receive happiness!
The Hermit reversed is asking us to be out in the world. Our souls have had enough of being isolated even if it’s been by choice. This month of social gatherings and winter celebrations asks of us to be out and about, even if we feel dragged into it. Our true self wants to be social, so why not try and make the best of it? The world has enough challenges as it is. Flip that energy and come out of the cave, be that social butterfly you were meant to be!
Love and family, social situations and the feeling of yearning for our more innocent times and childhood is here represented by The Six of Cups. This is all about family (blood or chosen). It’s telling us to create the precious moments we’ve experienced around them in harmony and celebration. Even that weird uncle or cray aunt. They won’t be here forever, so take advantage of family gatherings and social functions to reignite the warmth of connection with loved ones.
We often try to run away because we’re afraid of being open and vulnerable like the Four of Cups reversed, but some magical memories can be made here. It’s okay to be a little messy with your emotions. This is not a time to be guarded, but a time to be open and willing to receive what life has to give you. “Pastito al alma” I call it, grass to the soul! Family is a precious gift, be open to receive it in this gift giving season.
May 2018 receive you with love, joy and laughter, may all the blessings of a new cycle welcome you and may you be healthy, wealthy, whole and loved on this year to come!!
Best of Fortune to you all!

Reading for the week of May 29th of 2017 for Lunatic Mondays – Lunes Lunáticos courtesy of Tarot by Laura Gonzalez
Tendency: Ten of Swords – The energies for this week are urging you to let go of old habits and old ways of thinking which are no longer serving you but rather hurting you. Take an inventory of your thoughts, ideas and; the negative opinions you have about yourself. Now which negative thoughts are in need to die for new positive thoughts to emerge? When we are so far down the only way is up. You cannot have positive actions coming from a negative mind. The pity party is OVER!
What to do: Seven of Cups – Again about taking inventory but this time on your emotions, what is really important and worthy of your time, energy and focus and; what is only an ideal or illusion you have created in your head. Time to stop dreaming about what could have been, and start accepting the reality before you. If you don’t like what you see, change your reality, you have the control.
What not to do: Nine of Pentacles (reversed) – Once you have cleaned house (thoughts and emotions) it is time for you to build your self-esteem, recognize your accomplishments and relish on them, transforming the negative thoughts and emotions into self-care energy and actions is the best way to go. Don’t ever forget about you and the little pleasures life gives you. We are in this world to experience the best of life and in yours, you SHOULD be priority No. 1!
Best of Fortune to you all!

Tendency: Strength (reversed) – This week you are feeling a disconnection with your own Strength; there may be old habits or even addictions creeping their way back into your life, this is making you feel weak and powerless. Avoiding or denying these things is not Strength, Strength is confronting them head on, recognizing that we have a pattern or addiction we have not been able to shake or even accept that it’s there. The moment we name our demons they become less scary and less powerful. Asking for help and being in touch with others (mentally and physically) is not weakness but rather one of the most powerful shows of Strength
What to do: Three of Coins– Get in touch with those who may support you, those who have helped you before, they are not going to be judging you they will help you build a strong alliance against whatever it is that is ailing you and making you feel powerless and weak. You have been there for them before, be reassured that they will be there for you. Think close family, spouse or partner and friends whom you call family, these people will help you, all you have to do is have the courage to ask for help.
What not to do: Wheel of Fortune– Do not deny yourself your good Fortune, there are times when being the victim of our own circumstances is “easier” than taking action, blaming our bad Fortune is just the easy way out! The Wheel of Fortune is constantly moving teaching us that there are times of abundance and happiness but also times of lack and sorrow. Well this is NOT a time of sorrow for you, Fortune is in your favor so don’t turn your back against it. Face it and count your blessings, pick yourself up and go with the flow. Regain your Strength and keep going, at this moment Fortune IS on your side!
