What’s Your Goddess Sign?

by Anita Ryan

Your natural-born attributes are no accident – they can be attributed to an ancient goddess whose energy prevailed at the time of your birth.

Just like astrology, goddess energy defines who you are and what your life purpose may be.

The time of day, year and even moon cycle influences our personalities, values and choices. Women born into the new energy of spring, for example, are Venus-inspired and are natural lovers. They can’t help swing those hips or flutter those eyelashes – Venus energy is impossible to resist.

Every action, thought, projection of self, and treatment of others is a reflection of your goddess sign.

For example, if you react to a boyfriend’s indiscretions by punishing the other woman, you are displaying Juno energies – she went to extraordinary lengths to avenge her husband’s concubines.

Or if you like to lay low and stay out of trouble, your ruling goddess is most likely to be Hestia – she only wants a simple, uncomplicated, enriching and contented life.

No matter whether you’re pleb or celeb, your goddess sign defines how you manage your choices and destinies.

Many attributes of life have been described in this book so you can see that no matter what the situation, understanding your goddess sign is one way to ensure you get through each day smiling.

Mar 21 – Apr 20: ATHENA

Powerful and zesty Athena is the beautiful warrior queen who stood guard over the ancient city of Athens. Born leaders, Athena-inspired women know no fear, or that’s the face they present to the world at least. They experience trouble with self-expression, resorting to politics and force to coerce a project off the ground. They can be tough, independent, clever and resourceful women, but they should not be afraid to ask for help if they need it, and more importantly, allow people to help them.

Do this: Wear a light blue stone such as Lapis Lazuli around your neck to help you find your voice.

Apr 21 – May 21: JUNO

Comfort, warmth and material security are the things that keep devoted wife Juno happy. Prepared to go to any lengths to protect their relationships, Juno-inspired women fight for the elements they want and deserve in order to preserve and enrich the home environment. They sometimes show an inclination for revenge on anyone who threatens the stable union or home life. Instead of feeling threatened by outside influences, Juno-women should instead strengthen the relationship from within themselves, focussing on loyalty, fidelity, intimacy, inter-dependence and mutual respect.

Do this: Repeat this affirmation: I am secure, safe, and open to love.

May 22 – Jun 21: PERSEPHONE

Vital and intelligent Persephone, erstwhile professional victim, was the innocent girl that was kidnapped to the underworld by Hades (yes, but was it really kidnap? Well, maybe, at first). Persephone-girls tend to be fickle, meaning “yes” when they say “no”. They secretly enjoy being the scapegoat and having their life in a shambles, and won’t do anything about it while they are really waiting for a rescuer to swoop in and save them. Persephone-girls should stop playing the drama queen and come up from the underworld – it is time to stop luxuriating in guilt and try honesty on for size.

Do this: Practise saying “yes”, and meaning it.

Jun 22 – Jul 23: DIANA

Powerful and protective, Diana is the Roman goddess of nature, fertility, children, providence and harvest. Finely tuned to their environment and the feelings of others, Diana-inspired women are hunted for their natural empathy and sensitivity. Deep down though, they want escape. They hunger for more than their daily routine, but can’t see their way past their busy lifestyle. Commitments and responsibilities make an escape (and “time out”) seem like an impossible dream. Diana-women should take time to look after their own need for love instead of always giving it away to others.

Do this: Take a stroll in a place with nature and pick up anything that catches your eye. Whether it’s a stone or a feather, keep it with you to keep you grounded.

Jul 24 – Aug 23: PELE

The bright and fiery Pele is the Hawaiian goddess whose spirit dwells inside the largest active volcano in Hawaii. Full of passionate energy, Pele gals love being the centre of attention and the life of the party. Their well developed ego is a mask, however, for the nagging feeling that their energy is being misdirected. They work so hard for the attention and admiration from other people, they allow flattery to interfere with their otherwise balanced judgement. Pele-inspired women should cut their losses and work to channel their energy in a more rewarding way.

Do this: Stare at a yellow stone and visualise what you really want to happen. Repeat this until it becomes habit, and habit becomes manifested reality.

Aug 24 – Sep 23: HESTIA

Goddess of household abundance and well-being, Hestia energises the home with a welcoming energy, healthy food and comfort. As such, she is a creature of habit and organisation, purity, sincerity, sanctity and safety. But just as the ancient goddess Hestia is depicted in a pose of immobility, so too are her women immobilised by their own habits and need for organisation – simply, they may feel like they are “stuck in a rut.” Their convictions keep them so absorbed in their work, they can’t imagine living any other way. They need to ask themselves, “What’s the self-sacrifice for?” and break from their obsessive patterns.

Do this: Think of something spontaneous and daring. Take that leap of faith, and just do it.

Sep 24 – Oct 23: VENUS

The perfect lover, Venus is the Roman goddess of love and beauty. She rules over a woman’s sense of style and her appreciation for acts of love, pleasure and romance. Venus-born women find it difficult not to walk with a sassy step as they search for heady relationships, friendships and social acceptance. In their quest for perfection they are prone to self-criticism, forgetting the aura they exude is the aura they attract. And though they are insightful leaders, they can blur the line between business and pleasure, which can result in diminished professional success. Venus women should revel in their playful character and strong personality, but keep it appropriate to each situation.

Do this: Be a magnet for positive energy and smile at everyone today.

Oct 24 – Nov 22: MEDUSA:

Archetypal Amazon warrior, Medusa was a beautiful African queen who defended the freedom of her family, friends and territory with a fierce passion. She represents courage, strength and an abiding patience in seeking vengeance for wrong doings. Medusa women need to be careful they don’t become obsessed with bearing a grudge though, or they will emulate their namesake after her face became frozen with rage and her hair a seething tangle of snakes. By articulating hurt or feelings of betrayal, Medusa women can remain in control of creative expression rather than physical destruction.

Do this: Sing in the shower and release pent-up feelings of anger out through your voice.

Nov 23 – Dec 21: RHIANNON

A maiden of ethereal beauty, Rhiannon was the Welsh goddess of fertility and rebirth, transformation, wisdom, and magic. She was born with the first moonrise, embedding her with an inner urge for adventure and travel. As such, she rode her unearthly white mare between this world and the Underworld to satisfy her thirst for discovery. Rhiannon-inspired women can be so focussed on the horizon, they forget about being sensitive to those around them. They could learn a little tact occasionally, and anticipate others’ needs rather than waiting for them to ask.

Do this: Identify someone who needs your help, and assist them without thought of payment or thanks.

Dec 22 – Jan 20: DEMETER

In Greek mythology, Demeter is the goddess of the harvest. When her daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades, Demeter’s search took her on the path of poverty, abuse and eventually madness. It is typical of Demeter-inspired women to put the perceived needs of others first, at the expense of their own well being. They aspire to champion a cause in spectacular style, but tend to “smother” (as opposed to “mother”) the project they feel responsible for. They are better off ignoring their ingrained sense of frugality and self sacrifice and concentrate instead on cultivating things that make them happiest – children, herbs, or a comfortable home, for example.

Do this: Burnout is not your goal. Carry rose quartz to give some love back to yourself.

Jan 21 – Feb 19: HATHOR

Patron of dancers, mother of the gypsies, Hathor is the ancient Queen of Heaven. Hathor-inspired women have the gift of shape-shifting – the ability to transform themselves from a woman crippled with anxiety to a creature shining with light and radiance. In fact, it is a gift they use often in their quest for reinvention. They are constantly seeking new and fresh inspiration, which does not always sit well with more grounded people. With each new manifestation, they need to spare a thought for those they leave behind – not everyone is flexible with changing natures.

Do this: List five personality traits that you want to be remembered for when you die. Then live them, every day.

Feb 20 – Mar 20: OSHUN

Mother of rivers and the bloodstream, Oshun is the Nigerian goddess of universal love and sensuality. Oshun women are as flexible and predictable as the tides, being generous with their time for themselves during an “ebb”, and for others during a “flow”. They “go with the flow” of their instincts in order to find inner tranquility, but can lose sight of the real world in doing so. Sometimes it would be healthy for them stop drifting along without direction or intent, and instead to find a place where they can simply be.

Do this: Float on a still lake or pool but keep one foot anchored on the edge.

The Meaning of Your Life Path Number

by GoddessFlight.com

About Numerology

The path of life or destiny number is derived from the date of your birth. This life path number is perhaps the single most important number for you and, like your birthday, cannot be changed but will stay with you throughout life. It is through this number and what it symbolizes that you will work out your own destiny. This is why it is called the number of destiny or life path number.

The Life Path number gives you a broad outline of the opportunities, challenges, and lessons you will encounter in this lifetime. Your life path is the road you are traveling. It reveals the opportunities and challenges you will face in life. Your Life Path number is the single most important information available in your Personality Chart!

Life Path Number Meanings

Life path number 1. Like it or not, you will find yourself in leadership positions throughout life. Those near you will look to you for action and new ideas. They know you won’t hold back, but will always be pushing forward into the unknown… into new territories. You want to be at the forefront, for you can sense the urgency of a new idea and wonder why no one else is doing anything about it. You are a natural leader. Your wish to create, achieve, and make yourself felt to the world around you should be a source of pride and joy. Try and be gentle with those around who don’t have your far reaching sight and pioneering spirit. Life will see to it that you are on your own. You must develop and use this leadership.

Life path number 2. You have an innate concern and regard for others and the world around you. Yours is a life of cooperation and companionship. You seek and can give love, and marriage will be very important to you. In all things you will seek to cooperate. The peacemaker or coordinator, you can sense the urgency in the world around you and are moved to respond to these needs while others may be oblivious to them. The key for you is to work with a given situation, with “what is” rather than originate something new. Yours is a genius for adaptation and modifying. You have a sense of responsibility that is unrivaled and this allows you to know and respond to the pressing needs of people and situations -in general.

Life path number 3. You will find yourself an indispensable ingredient in the lives of those around you. A human catalyst, you will find solutions to both your own problems and those of others. Perhaps a career in the arts or in the communication or entertainment media will be enjoyed. You have the gift of being social and you enjoy talking, writing, and travel to the utmost. It will be important for you to know that you are what many situations and people need and are seeking. You are a solution. So enjoy and express yourself and above all, share yourself with others. Let them come to know and make use of your ability to solve and ease situations or problems that exist. Give of yourself.

Life path number 4. You are a “doer” above all and can always be counted on to see a project through and get the job done. The fact is: you love to work! You need not fear a lack of money in life for you are ready, willing, and able to take on projects at a moment’s notice. The world can sense this and will provide you with all manner of tasks, jobs, and responsibilities in general. You are loyal, trustworthy, and will become the foundation or backbone of any endeavor you undertake. You are an organizer and don’t mind long hours or tedious work. You crave security and your home and family are all important. You find inspiration in the mundane and those around can only marvel at your stick-to-it-ness.

Life path number 5. You are always the center of attention and the “favorite child” of the world around you. A love of change, travel, the unknown, and the unexpected keep you on the move and on the brink of respectability. You would make an excellent entertainer and artist. No humdrum life for you. The “nine to five” route is the last thing you would ever choose. You need time and room to explore the world, for you have adventure in your soul and freedom on your mind. You must keep the feelings of others somewhat in view, for you have a tendency to “love em and leave em” and you can cover in a day what might be a lifetime work for another. Above all, you must be free, you must stay with the changes, go with the flow.

Life path number 6. Organizational ability? You’ve got that. Also, a sense of responsibility that won’t quit. A sense of the public and the world around you finds you aware of social and economic conditions and you have the insight and the stick-to-it-ness to respond to unwanted conditions and to do something about them. A married life is just what you’ve always wanted and still want. Until that takes place you will be operating at less than full power. A home and family will provide you with the foundation you need to reach out into the community and make yourself known. You have a keen eye for detail and are a natural for management and supervisory positions. You will always have to fight off promotions.

Life path number 7. You are one who dares to ask questions and wonder about the “why” of this world we live in. You like to think and ponder. Time spent alone is often a happy time for you. A life of teaching others is perhaps unavoidable for your eye is fixed to a distant star and the rest of us never can get enough of that type of news. Your dreams are the stuff poetry and drama are made from and your thoughts are from the worlds of philosophy. You will seek to know your self and to penetrate into the deeper mysteries of life and science. You can be aloof and too much to yourself. Others can but marvel at what you are up to. You are on an inner and spiritual quest and the mysteries of life are your domain.

Life path number 8. Accomplishment and tangible power are very important to you. “Pie in the sky” is not your cup of tea. You want it now and in great abundance and you are more than willing to work very hard to get it. You will easily rise through the ranks to assume control at the very top levels of management. You have real “guts” or grit and a tangle with you is something no one wants a second time. You are for real, know exactly what you want and have every intention of getting just that. You may have a tendency to be less than exacting about the means that you use to reach the end goal you have in mind… so be careful in that area. Otherwise, you have every one’s blessing to take charge and do your thing.

Life path number 9. You always see the larger picture and the global view is the one that appeals to you. You’re a deep free thinker and your mind easily gets around in the realms of philosophy and the spirit. Your body probably likes to roam too and may enjoy lots of travel during your life. You have a love of truth and honesty that is unequaled, and can’t tolerate things mean or short sighted. You are kind, gentle at heart, and extremely giving or generous. You provide shelter for all the strays of the world. Your mind’s eye is ever focused on the distant star. You have an inbred love of poetry, music, and the arts. You make for a good marriage and have a deep understanding and great tolerance of others.

If ever there was a moment of total transformation, it was the moment of your birth. In that instant, you stepped through a door in time into a new reality — the reality of human life. The most important number in your numerology chart is based on the date of your birth, the moment when the curtain goes up in your life.

Even at that moment, you were a person with your own unique character, as unique as your DNA. Everything that is you existed in potential, much like a play that is about to begin. Your entire life exists as a potential that has been prepared for. You have ultimate freedom to do with your life as you like: To fulfill its potential completely, or to make some smaller version of yourself. It all depends upon your effort and commitment. You make the decisions to fulfill, to whatever extent, the potential life that exists within you. That is your choice. In this sense, the possible you is implicit during the moment of your birth.

You can calculate your own Life Path Number quickly and easily. Your Life Path Number is established by your complete date of birth. The goal is to take your date of birth and convert it down to one single digit of 1-9. The first step is to convert your birth month to a single number. Second, you convert the day of your birth to a single digit. Third, add the total digits of your birth year and reduce this number to a single digit. Lastly, you take these 3 single digits and add them until they equal one single digit of 1-9. Here is an example:

Psychic Sylvia Browne was born October 19, 1936. This is written as 10/19/1936 in numerical value. Here is how you break down the birthday numbers:

Month is 10: 1+0=1

Day is 19: 1+9=10 and 1+0=1

Year: 1+9+3+6=19 and 1+9=10 and 1+0=1

All 3 numbers: 1+1+1=3

3 is the Lifepath Number for Psychic Sylvia Browne.

Tarot Reading: Which Questions Can You Ask And When

by Ferdinand Cuvelier

In this article you’ll read about the kind of questions you can ask for a tarot reading. Also attention is payed to when it is best to do a tarot reading.

Types of questions for a tarot reading

In principle you can ask any ethical question to tarot as long as you are the subject of the question. But some types of questions don’t receive a clear and helpful answer.

You must know that tarot never gives a yes/no, good/bad, black/white… answer. Tarot describes a situation. It tells a kind of story.
Also tarot doesn’t take decisions for you. It doesn’t say what you must do. It’s your responsibility to take account of the advice, tarot gave you, or not.

Another point of attention is that tarot never gives you an inevitable outcome. During a tarot reading using certain spreads, tarot gives an outcome of a situation. But this is an outcome on condition that nothing is changed to the present circumstances. It’s up to you to change the circumstances if you don’t like the outcome.

In my experience this are the most frequent asked types of questions for a tarot reading:

  • Questions about the evolution of something
    This is the kind of question you ask when you want to know what the outcome will be from a certain situation. In general tarot gives a clear and helpful answer for this type of question. You mostly will also get an indication of where there are possible difficulties.
  • Questions that ask for the description of a situation
    When people want to know more about the background of a certain situation. This is often the case for introspective questions.
  • Question about the Personality
    Example: “I have problems for communication with other people. Could you tell me about the background of these problems?”
  • Questions that ask for an advice of tarot
    Example: “How should I change myself to give a new start to my relation?”

The above types of questions are all suited for a good tarot reading.
But often people also ask questions that are not so well suited. This are the types of questions that ask for a black/white answer from tarot. Or that ask tarot to take a decision for them.
Here are some examples:

  • Yes/No questions
    Example: “Will I have a relation with the boy I met last week?”
  • Questions that ask tarot to take a decision
    Example: “Where should I go during the holidays: France or Spain?”
  • Questions about time
    Example: “When will I find a new house?”. Tarot will never give a strict timing on any subject. Tarot is about descriptions.

Mary K. Greer describes a yes/no spread in her wonderful book “Tarot For Yourself”. I never experimented with it. I think that you miss a lot of the possibilities of tarot with that kind of questions anyway. But if I ever would try it, this would be the spread that I use.
By the way, the outcome of that spread can be neutral.

Of course, people sometimes ask double questions that belong to several types.
For example: “Is my love relation solid and how will it evolve?”. This is a combination about the situation of a love relation and about the evolution of that same relation.

A question should always be related to yourself. Never ask something about somebody else, like: “How is the relation between my boss and his wife?”.
You never would get an answer from a tarot reading for a question like this. And it is highly unethical.

A tarot reading is also not suitable for pure “materialistic” questions. You should not expect that tarot will give you the winning lotto numbers or tell you where the treasure of the Inca’s is hidden.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t ask about material things. If the object is related to you, then you might get an answer from Tarot.
For instance “Where will I find a new house?” would not be a good question. But “What is the meaning of a new house for me” could very well be considered.

When to ask for a tarot reading

The answer on this question is very simple: when you truly feel the need for it.
Don’t let you influence by anybody. And certainly not by an unscrupulous tarot reader. Only listen to your inner voice.

Another question is: “How long should I wait between two tarot readings?”. In this case you can use the following tips:

  • In the very first place: listen to your inner voice. This overrules anything else.
  • Some spreads, used in a tarot reading, give you a kind of intermediate outcome. When you have reached that point, you could ask for a follow up reading. But be aware that, if you have changed anything to the initial circumstances, that outcome never might be realized.
  • It’s not a good idea to ask for a new tarot reading, on the same subject, too fast. You must give yourself the time to deal with the first reading. Don’t rush it. You are not a machine. Myself I think you should at least wait 1 month, even 2 months, between two tarot readings on the same subject.

Ferdinand Cuvelier (aka “Temu”) is a tarot reader with over 25 years of experience.
He also studied Kabbalah and Theosophy and integrates these principles in his readings when adequate.
His tarot readings are characterized by his earthed tone which makes the readings easy to understand and useful.

How to Become a Professional Tarot Reader

by Suzann Kale

Tarot card reading goes in and out of favor with the public on a regular basis. When it’s hot, you can make a lot of money – perhaps even enough to live on. When readings are not the rage, as with any freelance career, you’ll need to keep your day job.

Either way, if you’re good at:

  1. reading the cards
  2. relating to people
  3. marketing yourself

you can be assured of earning money.

How to Be a Popular Card Reader

The first thing to remember about reading cards professionally, is that your client can tell if you’re sincere or not. You’ve got to be sincere. You’ve got to truly want the best for your client.

Secondly, you must always reassure your client that whatever comes up in the cards is not written in stone. Tell her that she alone determines her own fate. Remind her that the cards are simply reflecting patterns. They don’t dictate what will happen to her.

If you get a “bad” card, for instance, don’t just tell the client the “bad news.” Tell her that she has an opportunity now to overcome a problem. Frame your card interpretations in a way that encourages her to find solutions to her life problems. You want to energize your client, fill her with hope and ambition, no matter what cards come up. Check out the Tarot section of the Psychic Tea Shoppe – all the readings, even the “reverse” cards, are hopeful.

Getting Work

You can go at this from many angles.

1. Get yourself hired by a telephone-based or Internet-based company. The company gets the clients and forwards them to you.

When you work for a phone-based company, you must have a dedicated phone line with no add-on’s like call waiting. Log in to the company’s computer when you want to work, and sit by the phone with your cards during the time you are logged in.

2. Go freelance. Like any professional, you’ll need business cards and a website. You can take out ads in local periodicals if you’ll be reading for people face to face. If your clients will come to you via phone or the web, you might consider Internet advertising.

3. Join a networking group – either a local in-person group, or an Internet group.

Freelance Tarot card reading opportunities include:

  • Reading at parties
  • Renting a booth at “psychic” or “new age” conventions and doing readings and promotion from there
  • Arranging for a table at a restaurant or bookstore, sometimes paying the establishment a percentage of your earnings and other times letting the bookstore use your services to draw in more store customers
  • Setting up an Internet reading site (requires getting a merchant credit card account and Paypal)
  • Setting up your own telephone Tarot reading business (again, you must get a credit card/Paypal account)
  • Reading the Tarot cards in person from a storefront. You can arrange for your storefront to be a part of an existing store, and pay rent. (For security reasons, don’t read for clients out of your home, and don’t go to anyone else’s home – unless it’s for a well-populated party.)


There are many laws, ordinances, restrictions and town rules on the books, no matter where you read your Tarot cards. If you’re reading for money, you absolutely must do the legal research first.

Keep records and pay taxes. I would suggest a computer-based bookkeeping program. And make back-ups every night! Keep the back-ups off-site in case of fire or theft, or purchase storage space on the Internet.

You’re in a business that is not mainstream, and without excellent record keeping and impeccable tax returns, you’re going to create problems for yourself.

And finally, I would suggest purchasing an inexpensive insurance liability policy.

Reading People

Being a professional Tarot card reader is an awesome opportunity to observe others, to get out of your own problems and needs, and to make your clients feel good about themselves. Observe them as they come in, sit down, make small talk. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or let them talk out a problem. Catch their eye, make a connection. You’ll get a better card reading.

The flip side is this: Don’t let yourself be taken advantage of. When people start talking, they often can’t stop. Set a timer when the client sits down. You’re going to get many types of people as clients. Some will have big issues. Don’t take it personally if someone becomes angry with you. And do usher the client out if they are rude or disrespectful.

Be good at reading the cards. Be intuitive about people. You’ll make a fabulous Tarot reader.

Reading Tarot Cards

by Jason Gluckman

Reading tarot cards is not easy – there are many decks and many different spreads (or ways to throw and interpret the cards). But before you go on to learn these rather complicated things, you must first learn the basic meanings of each major tarot card. Here’s a rundown.

The Fool. This card symbolizes infinite possibilities and brand new beginnings, but it also carries a warning as well. It is a reminder to be careful about decisions.

Magician. This card symbolizes creativity, willpower, and desire. It suggests that a vision, an idea, or a solution to a problem is forthcoming.

High Priestess. The High Priestess represents knowledge that is instinctual, supernatural, and sometimes clandestine. When you get the High Priestess, you are bound to learn some very odd things in the near future.

Empress. The card is a symbol of creation, and usually signifies either pregnancy, a new romance, or new business.

Emperor. The card symbolizes someone who is direct, impatient, demanding, guileless, controlling, and sometimes tyrannous. The card also signifies leadership.

High Priest. The purpose of the high priest is to “bring the spiritual down to Earth,” and usually symbolizes harmony and peace amidst a predicament.

Hanged Man. This is a card not about death, but about suspensions and postponements. It reminds the reader to meditate, become selfless, and make sacrifices. It means that things will continue on after some time, but that for now, a delay may be best.

Lovers. This card symbolizes growth and maturity, and also of surrendering control to a higher power (such as love for another person, for a career, or for a challenge).

Moon. This card symbolizes visions, illusions, intuitions, and anything connected to sleep, dreams and nightmares. It warns of hidden enemies or tricks. It also warns of emotional and mental trials.
