I Am Ashamed To Go On Any Further

Bright Blessings PicturesIt is very late in the afternoon and frankly, I am ashamed to continue. I am sure you do not want your Today’s readings at 4:00 this afternoon. I have to admit it, I am not Lady A. She will hopefully be back tomorrow and things will get back to normal.

I am stopping now before I embarrass myself any further. Till we meet again,

Brightest Blessings,


Your Secret Tarot Desire Cards for the Week of July 11

Your Secret Tarot Desire Cards for the Week of July 11

This reading focuses on your ambitions and dreams.

The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man is the most enigmatic card of the Tarot. Even Tarot giants like Waite, Crowley and Levi had trouble deciphering The Hanged Man’s true meaning. Generally The Hanged Man is thought to represent the value of surrender and selfless acts. The Hanged Man embodies the notion that sometimes to lose is to win. Unlike the aggressive Chariot, The Hanged Man creates his fate through inaction and accepts his fortune passively, without resistance. He does not struggle to control the path his life takes, but rather allows events to sweep him where they will, even if he is called upon to sacrifice himself. He is so at ease with the Fate the Universe chose for him that even hanging upside down from a tree does not ruffle his inner peace.

When The High Priestess or Strength is among your personal cards, the influence of The Hanged Man may be increased. Having The Magus or Chariot in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Hanged Man.

The Empress

The Empress is “The Earth Mother” of the Tarot. She embodies all that is nurturing, clean and wholesome. Her powers resonate from her drive to create and care for life on a grand scale. She is in tune with Nature’s rhythm and realizes that life’s most pleasurable moments often stem from the simplest things. She is not afraid to enjoy herself–to let loose—to the point of being lavish. Abundance and luxury are important to her. The Empress is completely comfortable with her femininity and her sexuality. She is sensual, earthy, generous, and likes the good life. Still, her driving force is a need to create and nurture, and fulfilling this need overrides everything else.

When The Lover or The Star are among your personal cards, the influence of The Empress may be increased. Having the Emperor or Death in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Empress.

Your Daily Tarot Card for July 11 is the Moon

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Moon

The Moon represents those forces which remain largely hidden to us. The light of the moon provides some illumination down a path into the unknown, but not enough to brighten the landscape like The Sun, or cut through the dark shadows from which the unexpected may leap. However, The Moon is not without gifts we can use. She spurs our imagination and creativity. She can be a portal to knowledge and experience beyond the realm of our everyday lives. But Her offerings are not available to the feint of heart. To receive what The Moon offers one must have the courage to follow uncharted paths and the intelligence to find truths hidden in a bewildering setting rife with illusion. For those who can make this journey the reward may be finding the key to making their dreams come true.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, July 12

by Rick Levine


General Horoscope

We are weary of nurturing those we love even if it’s emotionally rewarding. We’re eager for some fun of our own as romantic Venus happily prances into lively Leo today. But a confusing Mercury-Neptune alignment muddles communication, confusing what is said with unspoken expectations. We can remain rational while the Moon is still in fair-minded Libra, but passion overtakes logic once Luna shifts into transformational Scorpio at 4:52 pm EDT.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

Your playful spirit and warmhearted generosity make you and whatever you bring to the table a joy to behold. Your love life heats up when stylish Venus sashays into charismatic Leo and your 5th House of Romance to magnify your charm and increase your popularity. Nevertheless, you can push your luck too hard if you forget to honor the needs of others. Thankfully, recognizing people’s limits helps you to avoid stress today and during the weeks ahead. All the world’s your stage but it’s more fun when shared with someone you love.

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

Uncertainty about your emotions and the unreliability of other people should dissipate as you step forward to take charge of your life. Sweet Venus waltzes into showy Leo, encouraging you to be more open when sharing your feelings with those close to you. Fortunately, you may feel more secure as Venus drifts through your 4th House of Home and Family for the next three weeks. But remember the words of John Lennon: “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Romantic urges may overrule your logic today and you won’t be able to think your way out of trouble. Venus marches into dramatic Leo and your 3rd House of Communication, bringing your desires into the open now. Don’t bother trying to rationalize your needs; just express what you want without any crazy expectations. Those who care about you will not only listen to what you say but could also surprise you with their support.

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

Buying things that pump up your prestige may be worth the money now if gaining a higher status stimulates your creativity. You grow increasingly extravagant as vivacious Venus moves through luxury-loving Leo and your 2nd House of Resources. But be careful not to go too far on your quest for pleasure. Stretching yourself to reach the stars is admirable as long as you are realistic when you calculate the cost of fulfilling your dreams.

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

The revival of your creativity makes you feel especially attractive these days. Luckily, your admirers can’t help but notice and are more than ready to reward you with the attention and affection you crave now. Effervescent Venus enters bighearted Leo and your 1st House of Personality to enhance your self-image and increase your charisma, enchanting others with your every move. It’s exhilarating to go with the flow when the pendulum finally swings in a more positive direction.

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

You might be tapped on the shoulder now and asked to perform selfless acts of love and compassion. But there’s no need to play the role of a martyr if you must set your personal needs aside for a while. Although you may not experience the pleasure that affectionate Venus in Leo often brings, her visit to your 12th House of Spirituality all but assures a deeper level of emotional satisfaction later on. To have an open heart is to be truly alive.

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

You’re in the mood to party but you might be tempted to overindulge tonight. Nevertheless, you want to spend more time with your friends when your key planet, Venus, prances into playful Leo and your 11th House of Dreams. But don’t pretend that everything is okay when it’s not. If you have deadlines you can’t meet or commitments you can’t keep, just admit it; accept the consequences and move on. Being honest can make life difficult for a while, but hiding the truth creates a deeper layer of problems.

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

If you have your sights set on getting ahead in your career, encountering supportive people and favorable circumstances make your progress easier than ever. As friendly Venus in lovable Leo wends her way through your 10th House of Status, people in authority will come to your aid because they are attracted to your magnetic energy. Remember, there is no better way to thank the universe for your good fortune now than by offering a helping hand to someone down on their luck.

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

You are dreaming of faraway places and distant romances now that vivacious Venus is traveling through dramatic Leo and your 9th House of Adventure. But paying attention to more immediate obligations obviously takes priority today whether you like it or not. You may be held accountable for unfinished tasks or shoddy work. Don’t let resentment waste your precious time. Buckle down and meet your responsibilities while you still can turn things around.

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

Gifts of love or money may start to flow when affluent Venus enters generous Leo and your 8th House of Deep Sharing. You could hear news about someone’s ambitious plans that stretch your credibility. You don’t want to rain on their parade today since you have more to gain by engaging your heart and raising your hopes than by stewing in skepticism or hanging back in fear. There’s no question about it; prosperity begins with your state of mind.

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

An abundance of pleasure is undeniably sweeter than a handful of empty promises. But watch out for a tendency to overspend and overindulge, for you might expect too much from others when Venus shifts into extravagant Leo and your 7th House of Companions. It’s all too easy to allow your fantasies to overpower reason but this strategy only works for short bursts of time. If you must set reality aside in the pursuit of romance, remember not to lose touch with your common sense.

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

Overblown pride and outrageous revelations could set you up for disappointment at work when Venus struts into theatrical Leo and your 6th House of Employment. Grand gestures may attract the spotlight now, but demanding too much or offering more than you can deliver is a risky strategy. Pushing the intellectual envelope eventually assists your career if you do the research before filling in the details of your agenda. As Ben Franklin wrote, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, July 11







Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, July 11



Aries Horoscope

While you can have some great conversations in the first half of the day, dear Aries, particularly with or about family, there may also be a disappointment or a sobering moment that points you in the direction of making some adjustments. This is just fine – you’ve got this – but keep in mind that it’s best not to make final decisions or draw important conclusions until later, as you may not be seeing things clearly just for now. You may need more time to finish a task, or you might need to draw upon more resources than you had first realized. Do whatever is necessary to get yourself back on track, and avoid excess or pushing too hard today.



This is a good day for making connections and opening up conversations, dear Taurus, but not necessarily for making solid commitments, as you may be second-guessing ideas and plans may be subject to scrutiny later today. Refinements need to be made to incomplete or weak plans. Financial worries or disagreements with a partner can become an issue now, or they can be behind a tense or critical mood. Roll up your sleeves and do what you can – don’t waste time on worry. It’s likely to be a busy day, but also an engaging one. Focus on accomplishing your goals step by step and one at a time.



There can be a comforting feeling of abundance in the first half of the day, dear Gemini. A conversation could lift your spirits, or new insight into a problem can surface. Money matters can run smoothly – a debt may be repaid or a gift might be received, for example. You could be dealing with some frustration later today, and if you can’t pinpoint it, it might subtly undermine your decisions or leave you on a fence about a relationship or financial matter. It’s probably better to leave it on a fence until you are clearer and more confident. While good ideas are likely in the morning, you could be questioning yourself by day’s end.



While you’ve been more independent than usual and valuing your freedom as well, dear Cancer, you may feel the need to take a pause later today, largely to regain strength and to fill the inner well. This morning’s communications can be heartening and forward-looking, and if you can manage to focus your energies on something fun rather than routine, you can do very well for yourself. People are finding you agreeable and attractive. You might find yourself enjoying talking about yourself without the usual feeling of self-consciousness that often goes along with it. Your perspective is appreciated. Later today, you may retreat into yourself a little. Watch for a tendency to nitpick and worry.



While in the first half of the day the ideas you come up with are likely very solid, dear Leo, wait for a better time to put a plan into action, as the mood this afternoon and tonight may be uncertain and indecisive. You could waver on things. Some of you could experience a disappointment with a friend, who may be undermining your confidence. You may feel pulled or pushed into a busy pace of life when you’d prefer to simply relax, digest, and take in. Avoid taking criticisms to heart later today, and instead decide what kind of improvements you can make going forward.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

You might connect with a special friend or a partner in the first half of the day, dear Virgo, and the lines of communication are open. Even provocative topics may be successfully approached with humor and love if you’re brave enough to raise them. Avoid taking on too much, however, as you’re likely to feel their weight as early as this afternoon, when you’re more practical, but perhaps taking practicality a little too far. Be cautious, but avoid thinking negatively. Repetitive patterns in communication tend to dominate now, but you can choose to break the cycle, at least on your end. As sociable as you have been lately, today you can feel a strong desire to dig in your heels and keep things simple.


Libra Glyph-Symbol

In the first half of the day, although there can be some tendency to rush things, there is good energy for solving a practical problem, or for work plans to come together well, dear Libra. This can also be a good time to present an idea to the public or in a business setting. Conversations can be very pleasant, particularly with parents and bosses, and some of you could be making a friendly connection on the job. Some insecurities can be brought to the surface later today, however. There could be some anxiety over a recent decision or a work matter. Chances are in fact high that the information circulating around you is incomplete. While ambitions are strong right now, so are your needs for some emotional space and freedom.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

Sharing ideas can be pleasant early today, dear Scorpio. Conversations occurring now can be supportive, although later today, when the general tendency is to look at the negative side of things, you may second-guess some of the things you come up with. This can be a time of making adjustments and accommodations for others – it may not make a lot of sense to draw things out. Some of you, however, may be humbled by something that happens today, and the learning experience is welcome. It’s a time for setting things straight or for correcting errors. Otherwise, you may not feel very much in sync.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

A helpful, useful conversation can occur today, dear Sagittarius, and a serious topic can be approached lightly with success. However, while you could be feeling strong with your relationships and confidence levels, later today seeds of doubt may be planted. Try to avoid coming across dispassionately in situations that would benefit from a more personal approach. Mixed signals from people can be frustrating, but you may also have some difficulties getting in touch with what you truly want right now. Spend more time on things before drawing final conclusions and decisions.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

Conversations in the first half of the day may feel healing and magical, dear Capricorn, particularly with a partner or about a relationship, but you might second-guess them later. Emotionally, there can be a feeling that you’re being slighted, and there can be some ups and downs. Avoid overanalyzing social and relationship matters today. Without even intending to do so, you could commit to something you later lose interest in. Work and responsibilities tend to occupy your thoughts, and this can distract you from attentive relating.



Others tend to bring out the best in you early today, dear Aquarius, and work and practical matters fare well. You’re thinking creatively about how to make, save, and grow money, or you are discovering new way to manage your daily life and improve habits. People tend to be more helpful, or you might be meeting someone now that has an especially positive influence on you. Later today, watch that nervous energy doesn’t interfere with happiness, as a tendency to over-analyze things to the point of worry and tension. You can be especially interested in getting things done, but emotionally, you may be somewhere else entirely, wanting to escape the routine.



This can be a good time for creating, sharing, and connecting, dear Pisces, although later today there can be some problems getting through clearly. The first half of the day brings warm, easy energy to your life, particularly when it comes to leisurely activities, hobbies, time spent with children, and romance. Others find you pleasingly attractive and wise, and you can have an easier time expressing your more playful side. Later today, you may need to deal with a small disappointment or reality check. Life getting a little more serious doesn’t have to be a complete downer, however. You can, in fact, feel good about taking care of business.

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast for July 10 – 16

Weekly Forecast: July 10 – 16, 2016

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity.  Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto).  And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path.  It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTEThere are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.  

Weekly Forecast: July 10 – 16, 2016

7/10 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Jupiter (optimism):

This energy is sometimes considered “lucky” but the success you achieve under this influence, is more likely due to a positive outlook and clear vision of who you are and what you want. Your life is expanding, your self-understanding is deepening and it will be easier to be around other people of higher consciousness, improving things and creating opportunities that benefit a larger number of people. There is a healthy dose of optimism around some grand plan, and things are moving, but make sure to do the foundation work to support this larger vision as it manifests in reality. If you are a teacher/guide/leader of any sort, this energy supports your group efforts, so giving workshops, seminars or new classes is totally supported and will benefit you, while serving others.

7/10 ~ Mercury (your voice) ~trine~ Mars (your actions):

This is a great alignment of your Thoughts & Actions. Clarity is effortless and you can follow your instincts. Be mindful of the Element too ~ in this case (7.10.2016), WATER ~ this is the flow of feelings & emotions, making your ideas & actions based on how you ‘feel’ at this time. Water too brings a purification, cleansing & transformation and a fresh new beginning. It is a great energy which gives you the courage to think things through and it activates your ability for strategic problem-solving if/when necessary. You will have direct access your authentic, inner voice so if you need/want an expressive outlet, you will likely find one. It’s also a great energy for small gatherings for spiritual, creative and/or intellectual exchange. Enjoy it! Just keep in mind your own Elemental Balance as well and how you naturally work with Water in your life.

7/11 ~ Mercury (lower mind & ideas) ~square~ Uranus (Higher Mind & awakening):

This energy challenges you to expand your mind or consciousness in a way, pushing you to think differently and respond to information in new ways. Uranus brings sudden ah-ha moments, personal awareness and radical new ideas, which is great for you adventurous souls who thrive on change and new ideas. However, if you are personally attached to your routine and things ‘going as planned’, then this energy can cause aggravation and tax your nervous system because things will seem sudden (even though it is more likely that they have already been brewing under the surface for some time now). You will have to adjust and be more open & mentally flexible than usual. You may not be able to control the excessive mental activity or information-overload coming in, but hopefully you can direct it a bit. It’s good to activate or clean your personal filters by taking some time in nature to process things at your own pace and generally clear your head. This can be a very inspiring & creative time, so try to tune into that, while keeping in mind that anything you begin or get into, may require a review later so you can check over the details of your revelations (or creations). You’re just cracking the surface, this is all about the revelation or awakening, you will eventually have to figure out the logistics or effective actions necessary to bring your ideas into form.

7/16 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~square~ Uranus (awakening & radical shift):

As with any Uranus activation, this one disrupts the normal flow to facilitate a ‘break to realign’ moment. While sometimes disruptive & challenging, the ultimate result is refreshing in some way. Consider the energy that thickens, gathering for a severe thunderstorm, then releasing buckets of rain, for hours, you sleep deeply and awaken to a bright sunny morning with birds chirping unusually loud outside your window. Got the visual? ; -)) This activation is the necessary challenge that gets your attention that something better is available, if you’re willing to improvise and think on your feet. If you’ve been unusually restricted in some way, you may feel restless. Rather than being reactive to the unexpected shift (within or without), it’s best to take a pause for the cause, step back and try to gain some perspective. Remember to be present, too far in the past can be depressing and too far into the future, and you cause your Self unnecessary anxiety. Breathe, be under the sky, invite clarity about the next step and trust your gut. This energy, while sometimes uncomfortable and often sudden, is very necessary to disrupt any illusions/delusions you may be holding on to. It’s time to express your Self in new ways.

7/16 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Venus (values, priorities & resources):

This energy encourages you to see the Divine Order or the unifying theme running through the events of your life ~ good, bad & indifferent as well as past, present & future. This is an initiation of new values around communication, self-expression and the value of your ideas. You may finally be able to express ideas that have been percolating in your head, some people say “I love you” at this time, or articulate their feelings in deeper, more expressive ways. It’s really *juicy* for your Inner Artist, this is the beginning of expressing your creative ideas in altogether new & different ways than ever before. Allow your Imagination to free-flow. Play with ideas with no attachment to outcome. Take advantage and explore all that this energy stirs within you, but don’t give in to over-thinking/processing things. These connections are richer, giving you access to deeper personal growth & development through a new understanding of how all the events of your life work together for good, ultimately. You can see the necessity of certain challenges and clearly see your own personal mastery thus far. Celebrate and choose to create some new thought patterns that integrate and reflect more beauty throughout your life.

7/16 ~ Sun (core identity) ~trine~ Mars (desire):

This is a powerful energy for solidifying who you are, what you want and what you are capable of. It brings out your desire to be truly self-sustained & independent, and with the good angle between Sun & Mars, you are deeply supported for forward movement that feels almost effortless when you are grounded and aligned with your own Truth & Purpose. If you are not clear about who you are or what your purpose is, this energy will inspire you to find out. If you are already on track and crystal clear, then this energy strongly supports progress & evolution to the next level in obvious ways. It is a great time for physical activities that bring you joy and get your juices flowing. You should review, with gratitude, all the goals you’ve accomplished thus far and begin deciding what you can finish up in preparation for what’s coming. You are truly being prepared for your future, use this great energy to ground that intent consciously and with a vote from your Heart & Soul.

Monday Is Ruled By the Moon


This day of the week is dedicated to the moon and all of her magic and mystery. Mondays are for women’s mysteries, illusion, prophetic dreaming, emotions, travel, and fertility.

Some suggestions for Monday enchantments would include:

*Getting outside and looking for the moon in the heavens. Sit under her light and absorb a little glamour. Call on the moon goddess Selene for practical help in magical issues.

*Invoking the god Thoth for wisdom and insight

*Empowering your silver jewelry under the light of the moon. Wear moonstone or pearl jewelry today to add a lunar and magical shimmer to your outfit. Be mysterious and subtle and wear moon-associated colors such as white, silver, and blue.

*Working spells for safe travel with a simple moonstone

*Gathering bluebells, jasmine, gardenias, or white roses to create a little garden witchery with the flowers that are associated with the moon

Magical Workings for The Waxing Moon


The waxing moon is the period during which the moon grows from dark to full. It takes approximately fourteen days for this to happen. In many magical traditions, people use this time of the moon to perform “positive” magic — in other words, magic that draws things to you, or increases things. Some examples would include:

Any magic related to increasing material items

Janie Doodle is a reader who lives in North Carolina, and follows a practical magic belief system based in the folklore of her mountain ancestors. “This is the moon phase where stuff gets done,” she says. “Anything I need or am lacking in, I bring it right to me during the waxing moon. As the moon gets closer to full, so does my wallet, my larder, and my garden.”

The Waxing Moon Phase

The Waxing Moon Phase

Now is the time your projects can get into their stride. Be aware, however, that overstrains are more likely at this time and that the body takes thing in and absorbs them more readily with a Waxing Moon.
It is also a good time to build yourself up if you have been unwell or otherwise off-colour. Absorbing, boosting your energy and taking up supplies are crucial now. Go on an active holiday, get in touch with friends, plan a party, arrange meetings and increase communication.

As the Full Moon approaches, notice what isn’t working and shed it in order to focus your energies more effectively. Remind yourself to slow down a little and conserve your strength. This is a time of regeneration and to gather information and resources.
