This Week’s Featured Reader is Safina. She is a Psychic Visionary, Astrologer, Tarot Master, and author of ‘Tarot Boot Camp’.
When you come into chat with Safina, you will start with your heartfelt questions, together with your name and date, time and place of birth so she can pull your birth chart. This way she’ll be able to see very clearly where you’re headed and what opportunities or obstacles lie on your path in front of you.
She will say a prayer, open a channel to her spiritual connection and pull a Celtic Cross Tarot spread to see what advice or obstacles the cards reveal about your situation.
Safina learned the Tarot through her life experiences and the visions she received from her spiritual connection, and the Ascended Masters that were assigned to her, whom she met through her visions and dreams.
The Timing of a Hidden Prophecy: I did not look for the tarot, the tarot found me through the visions I received in vivid color.
These visions were kind of spooky but also very amazing and inspired me to learn everything I could about the tarot. The tarot is your best teacher and will show you the root of the situation, or point out the best direction for you to take, or give you something to think about, or help you activate your intuition, or help you on your journey of spiritual development.
My Great Grandmother was a Master Tarot Card and Cartomancy reader and my mother is a Master Cartomancy reader, so the apple did not fall far from the tree.
When it’s your time to work on your life purpose the universe is going to help you get there one way or the other.
Did you know there are hidden prophecies related to the Tarot Cards that are enumerated five? These cards represent the time of an unknown unexpected change that will be revealed to you.
Before I started reading the Tarot, I slept with my cards under my pillow for three nights to charge them. But the three nights turned into one year and during that year I had dreams about Tarot Cards every night and in the beginning, it was maddening because the cards kept me awake, but later I realized it was a blessing in disguise!
Did you know that you can choose a card from the deck and put this card under your pillow and ask for guidance in your dreams? Your dreams will give you a snapshot of what will happen in the future that you need to prepare for, or your dreams might give you information about something that happened in the past.
I put the Ace of Cups under my pillow and in my dream I ate the magical lotus flower soup (time to consider the contents inside the soup and its symbolism). This dream brought me back to the beginning of my spiritual development with the Master Chin Yin from China and this was the time when I ate lotus flower soup!
The Ace of Cups is enumerated one and associated with the journey of the 1 passageway in the Hero Tarot Deck. Did you know that the Ace of Cups is pure energy with no form or direction until the seeker activates this energy? The 1 vibration is a ground-breaking vibration (the magic of possibilities). This vibration is also related to a gift, a spiritual awakening that comes freely from a hidden place.
During the night of the Full Moon (the time when wishes can come true), I started my chakra meditation to raise my vibration level to a higher state of consciousness to meet my higher-self.
At the end of my meditation, I had a beautiful vision and ended up on a beach where I met my higher self. I am a Cancer Sun Sign and related to the element of water, so it made sense that I’d meet my higher self at the beach surrounded by a body of water during a Full Moon!
The Full Moon Chakra Meditation: In this meditation, you envision walking up the chakra ladder one step at a time. You feel the energy of each step (charka) until you arrive at the last step which represents a higher state of consciousness.
Wishes do come true when you are at this level of consciousness and have the Full Moon energies pouring down upon you. The first step of the chakra ladder is the color red and associated with the root chakra – your foundation. Ground yourself to the element of earth and envision yourself feeling safe in your environment.
The second step of the chakra ladder is the color orange and associated with the sacral chakra – your sexual passions and desires. Ground yourself to the element of water and envision feeling safe with your personal and professional relationships and know that these relationships have special meaning.
The Total Solar Eclipse (New Moon) occurs at 6:30 PM UTC in the zodiac sign of Leo at 28 degrees on August 21, 2017 and the energies of this Eclipse might linger for many months to come.
This Eclipse is related to the North Node Rx (the future) and makes you form a relationship with your dreams and desires to complete your soul work and your feelings might be put to the test.
The Solar Eclipse pushes you forward, allowing you to discover who you really are as well as what you can hope to achieve.
Jupiter and Saturn Retrograde
I hope you are making it through Jupiter Retrograde without a scratch, but sometimes no matter how smart and wise you think you are, you will be enlightened with another twist and turn that will take you by surprise.
You need to remember that your destiny changes with every step that you take. Just be smart enough not to carry around the baleful ghosts of the past with every step that you take and let the past steal your future.
Jupiter Retrograde begins on February 6, 2017 at 23° Libra and stations direct on June 9, 2017 at 13° Libra.
Strength – The Journey of Inner Strength
This week, you might need to use your courage and inner strength to face something unpleasant, or you needed to face your fears and not let your fears devour you, or you needed to face someone who thought they could push you around.
You are the Hero, the Strength associated with a continuous cycle of change and the seventy-eight passageways of growth that will open up and lead you to explore new opportunities.
The Emperor – The Journey of the Commander in Chief
This week, you might be on the journey of the commander in chief. Once upon a time you became the commander in chief of your lifestyle. You grew up and came into your power to be the master of your destiny and decided to create a long-lasting foundation.
You are the Hero, the Emperor who is associated with a continuous cycle of change and the seventy-eight passageways of growth that will open up and lead you into new opportunities that are ready to be explored.
This week, you might be protected by your honesty. Once upon a time a fair decision was made because, protected by your honesty, you were absolved from blame. Justice indicates the revelation of truth, or insight to make an adjustment, or a karmic experience has been fulfilled and a past action has been judged.
You, the Hero-Justice, are associated with a continuous cycle of change and the seventy-eight passageways of growth that will open up and lead you into new opportunities that are ready to be explored.

Eight of Pentacles
Tarot Card of the Week: The Eight of Pentacles – Raising the Bar to Achieve a Dream.
This week, you might be raising the bar to achieve a dream and hammering away at obstacles to achieve success.
The planet Mercury is retrograde in the zodiac sign of Virgo and you might be dealing with Murphy’s Snafus (unexpected obstacles).
Just keep hammering away and don’t give up on your dream.
On the bright side, Mercury Retrograde is the time when we turn our thoughts inwards and we are more tuned into our intuition!
The Eight of Pentacles is all about entering the apprenticeship phase. In the upright position, this card means you raised the bar to achieve success.
The obstacles of the past will be history because you hammered away at the work load and did not give up.
The Eight of Pentacles is associated with the planet Mercury (how the mind works) and the zodiac sign of Virgo (the combination of Mercury in Virgo makes you work hard and pay attention to details).
Tarot Card of the Week: Aug 8-Aug 14, 2016
The Journey of Solitude:
This week, you might decide to become the Hermit and take the journey of solitude to figure something out, or maybe you need time away from your daily routines, or it’s possible you need time away from other people.
The Hermit (the hero) wants to be alone and does not want his peace disrupted. His mind is restless and he needs quiet time, or needs to find what he has overlooked.
He is gathering information, analyzing and searching for answers.
The Hermit will hide for days, weeks or months, returning when he is ready to solve his crisis!
The Hero’s Journey: The Hermit suggests that you need to withdraw from a situation to figure something out. You probably need to meditate and connect with your inner-light.
Through your meditative journey, you will connect to the light of wisdom or resolve an existing problem.
Tarot Card of the Week: Jan 25, 2016 – Jan 31, 2016
This week you might take a risk — you know the future is uncertain but you’re confident and ready to move forward and put your plans into action to realize your dreams!
Hermes — The Little Rascal — The Magician of Greek Mythology
The Greek God Hermes was a rascal who had a hidden agenda and was extremely precocious. Hours after his birth he snuck out of his crib and headed off on an adventure which included stealing cattle from his half-brother, Apollo.
He hid them in a cave, creating a lyre (lute) from a turtle shell, and inventing sacrificial divine worship. He then returned to his crib as if nothing had happened.
Apollo discovered his cattle were missing and became livid! Being the gifted god of prophecy and omens as well as the Sun god, he determined that Hermes stole the cattle.
Finding the supposedly hapless infant in his crib, Apollo took Hermes to see his father, Zeus (king of the gods, fate and destiny). When confronted, Hermes lied and said that he did not take the cattle.
