Take Two Steps Back and Listen With Your Heart

ANI-website7.jpgThis week’s Divine Name Combination is Alef Nun Yod, אני, and it spells ANI / I am, in Hebrew. This Name holds the mystery of prophesy, premonition, and the ability to *see* things from the perspective of your Higher-Self. Or as I call it, listening with your heart.

Know Thyself, the ancient occult motto, plays perfectly into this code. The more we understand ourselves, be it our physical abilities or psycho-spiritual needs, the more we are capable of enriching our lives. Alef Nun Yod is a wonderful tool to help us calibrate our inner GPS systems to be in greater sync with the Big U, and by doing so making our experiences more fulfilling, substantial, and joyous.

On the mundane level, I am happy to report that this Divine Vibration is auspicious, foretelling of good news, while suggesting that the bad ones can be avoided through keeping the gaze on the bigger picture rather than hyper-focusing on the minutiae.

This week is great for planning for the future, making long-term adjustments to your living or working conditions, or deconstructing a particularly complex set of challenges that previously would have been impossible to approach in a practical manner.

ANI-websiteFinally, this is THE time to connect with your Spirit Guides, set up an ancestral shrine, or channel information from the Akashic Records. The timing is absolutely divine for perfecting your prophetic skills.

So, if you always wanted to learn how to read the tarot, learn about your Spirit Guides, wanna up-level your oracular game, or maybe you need some psychic business coaching , hit me up… cos Madame Nadia does all this and then some.

Wising you a magical week!

Weekly Draw — Lit from Within

This Week’s Holy Name is אכא (Alef Kaf Alef), and it’s hawt!

This vibration reignites the desire leading a lit and extraordinary life. It’s about reclaiming your exquisiteness. It’s about getting your turn on and your grove back.

 

 

So why am I not feeling the sexy?

Great question!

IMG_6329Lets address the problem fist. This week you’re dealing with the gorgons of apathy, purposelessness, and lack of motivation. Perhaps life feels extra chaotic at the moment? Maybe you’re overwhelmed by having to sort through a boat-load of emotional clutter? Confronting procrastination, laziness, and even depression are equally feasible items on your to do list at this time.

Moreover, you are very likely to realize that some significant personal relationships, old habits, and well-oiled routines have become dysfunctional. It’s dead emotional weight, and it gotta go!

This week your biggest job is to weed out that which lets your spirit down! Let organically disintegrate what cannot be re-patched anymore.

Alef Kaf Alef - 72names

The push of your soul’s desire for freedom against your ego’s pull toward faux-security at all costs, could feel like a mini existential-crisis. So arm yourself with אכא and ride that mofo like pro! Since, essentially what you’re sensing is the old psycho-spiritual structures collapsing, while not yet feeling a sense of renewed success and satisfaction that have been already blooming within the magic of your Higher Self.

Arm yourself with patience and meditate on the אכא because it will turn your being on with inspiration, beauty, and passion. Its magnificence emanates from the root of your soul. Trust me baby… it will make you lit!

Weekly Draw: Spirit Over Matter, Will over Fate — Vav Vav Lamed

Mercury went direct today, darting bullseye through the points of last, very fated, eclipse. With no hesitation, the trickster planet delivered a dose of illumination and inspiration, dropping some serious knowledge and unseen info, helping us manifest a desired and auspicious future.

This week’s draw ignites a chain reaction of positive growth in the personal realm — aligned with Hermes’ forward motion out of its shadow — during a window of opportunity, between now and September 20th, to manifest miracles in the emotional, financial, and spiritual spheres.

וול Vav Vav Lamed is a fabulous reminder that Spirit controls matter, and if we invite this vibration into our souls, we will be given an opportunity to significantly alter the scarcity in our lives.

Financially, this draw promises that limitation to our personal growth are in the process of release. We are encouraged to “go big or go home,” or at least to think how can we impact a larger crowd with our new and successful enterprise.

VavVaVLamed72This Name emphasizes visualization techniques to break through cynicism. It helps getting the support needed; whether physical, emotional, and spiritual, to make your wishes come true.

The most mystical application of this Divine tool, perhaps is gaining understanding of how Spirit governs matters — eventually applying this technique to our own life path.

Healing with the Playing Card Oracles

Making the cards

a self-made ceremonial version of PCO Alchemy

Going back to the Playing Card Oracles (PCO) has become a tradition of sorts for me. It occurs naturally. Without me thinking about it. When my mind is overwhelmed, preoccupied, uncentered, or when I’ve been over-saturated with other decks and perhaps even with clients, the PCO slides into my hands with  familiar certainty and the repair begins.

Divination is my calling, and cartomancy specifically is a bit of an obsession. I love researching historical decks while supporting new and emerging artists by investing in their art. I enjoy learning new systems of Divination, while always honing my skills. I even experience a sensory, ASMR-like enjoyment from shuffling and handling certain decks.

Although I’ve been reading cards for over 25 years now, I took a sabbatical of a few years, after suffering a massive burn injury while being three months pregnant with my daughter. (Actually I’ve just celebrated my eighth burniversary last week!!!)

BURN-HOSPITAL-FINGERSThe injury itself had nothing to do with my ability to read or shuffle cards. My hands, thank Goodness, weren’t damaged by the fire. Outside of 75% of my skin that was compromised — either due to third-degree burns or because it was used for skin grafting — it was my trust in the Divine that overnight was burnt to ashes, transforming into a rage against everything spiritual I held on a soul-pedestal before the accident.

While I began the long process of rehabilitation, my collection of cards was packed away, per my request, and most of my spiritual possessions given to friends and colleagues.

The following years were spent in healing, both physically and emotionally. Mostly it felt like I was given an infernal membership in a special kind of hell, taking private dance lessons with my demons, as I taught myself how to walk again in real life. The learning curve was steep: from learning about who I really was skin deep, to the fluctuating loyalties of the world around me. I even discovered that it’s possible giving birth in compression garments! (Sorry, burn survivors’ sarcasm.)

However, it is when I saw my daughter for the first time though — a healthy, chubby bun of divine light, with a head full of thick black hair — that I realized inside my chest still existed a heart overflowing with hope, even during the darkest times with my own psyche setting itself on fire.

Fast-forward to a few years later, following a relocation from my beloved Bay Area to the Midwest; to buying a house, to attempting a new career. I was a different woman I thought. Then, out of the blue, I found myself shuffling cards again. I can’t recall how a that PCO deck got out of the trunk and into my hands. But it did. And with it many realizations.

I was aware of the sense of comfort spreading with, as I handled these loose leaves of paper. I missed card reading so much!. And these playing cards have brought an essential part of me back to life.

That fall I dug up the book that came with the cards, and taught myself Ana Cortez’ method. I found her YouTube channel, and later became a student in her online school.

In spring I was fully back to reading cards, rejoining Hoodoo Psychics and AIRR, a magical services organization which I helped founding.

The original PCO deck, as well as the Alchemy addition, hold a comforting sense of clarity to me. The story of my draws unfold naturally, taking shape in the spaces between the suits and the numbers, comparing and contrasting with the colorful characters. Meaning makes itself knows via questions like: “Is there a balance between the red and the black cards? Are all of the suits represented? Can the pips guard their ground against the assertive courts? Is this a prediction of a battle, or an idyllic fairytale of love?”

It’s 10 am, and it is gloomy in Lombard, IL. I woke up with a heavy heart due to dreams of financial crisis and unfinished business. As I sip on fragrantly thick coffee my partner has brewed for me, I instinctually reach for a deck on my nightstand. I shuffle with the intention to make meaning for my state of mind. Is it something external that’s coming at me? Is it spiritual in nature? (In my business witch-wars are as real as gang activity.)

The deck I’m using today is a small PCO Alchemy deck. I’m comforted by the familiar, black and white constellation of the backs, and the way the wholesome paper-stock feels to my fingers.

I draw a vertical, four-card spread — pulling three Clubs and one Spade. The lack in red suits reflects the heaviness of the gloomy weather outside. A confirmation that the cards, my Self, and the world around us is in tune.

Playing cards oracles - alchemy edition

daily draw

The majority of Clubs places a significant emphasis on the Air element, which corresponds to the Thinking Mind. It says loud and clear: “You’re in your head!”

At the top is Sir Galahad (9 of Clubs). He is the “proper” knight, always trying to do the right thing.

Next shows up The Wand (3 of Clubs), looking like an extension of Galahad’s trebuchet, shamelessly revealing my “bi-polar” state of mind. It stresses that I’ve been, without much success, attempting to juggle very positive and very negative thought patterns. If anything, this “Janus” energy is aggravating, and it’s making me slightly cray cray, which is highlighted in the next card, the 5 of Clubs — Wind Cape.

The cards shamelessly telling me that while I imagine my shit has been under control, the truth is that I’m “loosing it.”

Finally, The Sword of Destruction (7 of Spades), actually brings some solace. Even though it’s a a heavy card from a troublesome suit, its redeeming quality pierces at the foot of the spread; a placement where Earth, an element represented by the Spade suit, is dignified. In a way it grounds the other three Air cards. It helps me stay functional, by offering an “out of the self-mindfuckery jail” ticket.

In other words, the cards suggest that accepting the erratic moodiness my current state of mind generates is the first step for healing and stability.

The more I meditate on this, the more the draw makes sense.  After all Mercury just went Retrograde, and the Moon is in Gemini.

Daily Draw: Riding Solo with Rose Colored Glasses מנק

FullSizeRender.jpgHow do you feel about Riding Solo, foxy?

Not too keen on it? You and I both! Maybe we need some attitude adjustment? Because we are entering our personal desert of life circumstances, and it’s our job to do some winter cleaning. Besides, today Mercury is going officially retrograde, and so we won’t be short on the opportunities for house cleaning.

Today I am examining the Holy Combination מנק  (Mem Nun Kuf), as I meditate on the density of attachments. Attachments to individuals who aren’t supportive of my cause or happiness; but mainly, I’m prepping to go savage on my inner-closet, filled with outdated self-sabotages, numerous pairs of self-pity, and bitter blame that is way too small for this fox’s curvaceous attitude.

 

Today’s draw teaches us the mystery of elimination. Of cleaning house from attachments and relationships that take away from our beauty, power, and our grace. It empowers us to act instead of reacting, and ultimately forces us to rock self-reliance till we are the biggest star on the stage of our personal destiny.

If you would like to use this Divine Vibration in your personal spiritual work, I’ve made a short video tutorial on how to write this combination in Hebrew:

Tomorrow I’ll be back with another Daily Draw at 3 PM Central, on my Facebook Page.

And until tomorrow, stay foxy, my friends!

 

Exquisitely yours,

Madame N.

How are your 2017 resolutions look? Need some guidance about what’s coming up for you? No problem, I’m all for helping you out. So, here, follow this link, and do yourself a big, foxy favor and book a reading. Knowledge s power power!

Daily Draw with Madame Nadia -> אני

fullsizerenderNeed a little intuitive boost, foxy? You got it!

Today’s Daily Draw is all about enhancing your psychic abilities, and then some. The combination of letters אני (Alef Nun Yod), which also makes the word “Ani” in Hebrew, that means I or I am, represents the power of prophesy, the ability to foresee that which hasn’t taken place yet, and even getting a glimpse of that which is happening in other dimensions and realms. Pretty intense, I know!

Check out this recording  below, of a Facebook Live Draw I offer daily on my page to learn more about this specific combination from the 72-Names Cards, as well as hear my teaching about the importance of personal ethics in the business of fortunetelling and spiritual services.

Generally, on a more mundane level, אני, is about perspective. Today your ability to tae a few steps backward to see the big picture is heightened. But there’s more!!!! If you’ve been having issues with staying focused, today is the perfect day to retry that centering excessive because it will be much easier to focus on very small, but paramount in importance, detail. A single seed to a whole garden of opportunity, if you will. So much potency is present within today’s Name.

The more difficult aspect of this draw, however, is the probability of you foreseeing an upcoming problem in another person’s life, having to navigate the gap of difference between absolute clarity on your part and a complete lack there of on theirs. How do you tell them what’s going to happen in a productive and supportive way, without freaking them out or upsetting the status quo?

My suggesting is meditating on the holy frequency of אני, it has great potencies and could grant you both, high wisdom — think clearly hearing ancestral advice, and using it in decision making process — and heightened intuition. The gematria value of today’s Name is 61, by the way.

Finally, אני is a great focal point for meditation if your are a psychic or a student of the divinatory arts, to help you being able to tune in into your Higher Self, and stay protected attempting to connect with and contact higher spiritual frequencies and other-worldly intelligences.

I figured you’d like to test out the potency of this Holy combo on your own, so I made a video for you to help you write it out.

I hope you are finding these enjoyable. Tomorrow, at 3 PM Central,  I’ll be broadcasting the Daily Draw on My Facebook page again, and I hope you can join live.

Get a Grip: Daily draw for September 15th, 2016 — יבמ

Hello foxy!

יבמ — Yud Bet Mem — is today’s sacred frequency combination from the 72 Names of G-d, and the gematria value is 52.

Let promise each other not to lose our grip even when it appears like nothing is going our way. Today we’ll be working on staying grounded, especially if we are experiencing general overload, and feel oversaturated and venerable!!!

Use the holy sound Yud Bet Mem as today’s mantra, repeating it in sequences of 52 times, helping yourself stay grounded, while locating the singular source for chaos and jumbled perspective.

 

Also, I apologize for the echo effect in the first part of the video… I blame Mercury Retrograde for it.

Stay foxy!

 

 

 

Get Your Scent On — New Incense Collection by The Wild Unknown

Decks for the show

Using The Wild Unknown with oracle and playing cards

If you’ve been following this blog or my Facebook page several years ago, you know that I’ve raved about The Wild Unknown tarot way before it became an item on every reader and their sister’s list. The fab deck created by a multidisciplinary artist, Kim Krans, who among other things is a singer in the Family Band, with her partner Arjan Miranda, was an immediate iCandy for me. But in addition to having a revolutionary aesthetic, the cards also read like a mofo. In any case, I really shouldn’t say much more about this pack because we all have it and love it. If you haven’t watched the video to their single, Moonbeams, though, you really should.

The news coming from house of The Wild Unknown is their

own Incense Collection. I enjoy burning incense during my divination sessions, and find this to be a transformative agent that helps not only to connect with Spirit, but also provides a means of shaking off spiritual funk that weighs down consultations and our own selves into the pits of unnerving gravity, so my hyper, triple-Gemini self just couldn’t not share these news with the world.

[Shameless plug in — if you need your cards read or your fortune told, go to www.MadameNadia.com/Readings and book a session with me. I promise you it will be fabulously life-transforming]

The two scents currently offered are Nag Champa Blossoms, Sacred Sandalwood, and the cost is $16 per (a little overpriced in my opinion).

La Vera Sibilla Readings Tomorrow on the LMRH Show

IMG_6814.JPG

3X3 Sibilla matrix spread 

La Vera Sibilla cards have been sort of an obsession of mine for almost a year now. It’s a fascinating, pack of 52 fortunes that is read upright and reversed. Each card sports a small square on the left, top corner, with pip inserts corresponding to suits and numbers of a traditional playing cards deck, as well as two “lottery” numbers at the bottom of each card. Like other “sentimental”* packs, La Vera Sibilla look like a not-so-far-removed cousin to the “The Parlor Sibyl” family.

a Parlor Sybil deck

 

Learning how to read the Sibillas has been challenging. Firstly, I do not speak Italian. And secondly, when you finally find access to the cards’ definitions, there is a ridiculous amount of meanings to memorize for each card. So far the 52 shady ladies of La Vera Sibilla pack turned out to be consistently and unapologetically on point — just like I like it.

 

If you’d like to experience the Sibillas in action, I’d be thrilled if you tune in to the Lucky Mojo Rootwork Hoodoo Hour show, today, Sunday, May 29th, over on blogtalk. The show airs at 5:00 PM Central Time. I will be filling-in for Miss Cat, and co-hosting the show, reading fortunes, and prescribing conjure remediations alongside  ConjureMan Ali. The show is also archived, and available for later listen over on on iTunes.

Hope to see you in the chatroom ❤

Madame N.

Please let me know if you’d like to read more about my experience with La Vera Sibilla, or see sample readings.

A Divination Altar

IMG_3852

Madame Nadia’s Divination Altar

Last week I finally    got to accomplish a spiritual task I was planning for a long while. But due to a busy schedule — conjure clients, a masters degree, a family, and all that jazz — I had to wait for a summer break in order to build a divination altar. It took me about 5 days from the point of starting to clean and prep the area where I was planning to erect it, to actually having a functional sacred space for devotion and inspiration.

I was taken by surprise when, after posting a picture of my newly constructed fortunetelling shrine, I got many questions about it from folks over social media. After thinking about it I realized that indeed I haven’t seen many images of divination before. 

What I call a divination altar is a space dedicated to the Spirits I work with when I read fortunes. By honoring my Spirits regularly, my connection with them deepens, and my divination skills improve. Not every one works with Spirits, or knows their Spirits, or is aware of a presence of such energies while divining — and it’s perfectly fine. This is just the way I do it, and how my practice had unfolded throughout the years. In fact, now that I think about it, building this shrine in a first place was a mission given to me by my Spirits of Divination. 

Building altars has its own aesthetic. Every one does it their way. And my technique, even if originally my intention was keeping it clean and functional, turns into a sensory overload painted in the colors of a bordello. Really, I shouldn’t even try fighting it anymore. lol

IMG_3851

Carnivalia Sign

The pieces on the altar are images, photographs and statuary that has special meaning to me or to my Spirits. For instance, last May, while teaching at the Hoodoo Heritage Festival, I was presented by the sweet, Coastside Conjure, with a beautiful shingle sign made by Carnivalia. Since I am not reading in person, I knew I wanted this large beauty to be the backdrop for my altar. I also keep a few beautiful containers with graveyard dirt — one of them contains dirt from Mlle. Lenormand’s grave site, another precious gift I received from a talented colleague and friend, Balthazar Conjure.

IMG_3854

Graveyard dirt and other delights

In addition, I keep a few card decks and other, special to me, divination and magickal tools either on display or hidden. One of these is my first Thoth deck that also happens to be the oldest reading deck in my possession (as opposed to the vintage decks in my collection). The only deck I owned prior to the above mentioned cards was a Rider Waite Smith I purchased at the age of 15. However, these cards were left at Ma Kali’s feet as part of my initiation offering some 10 years ago. And of course, there are candle holders and an incense brazier placed securely among bones, furs, shells, magickal goodies, and a central piece — a glass for water. I must boast that this cool container is also a present from a friend and a student, Dean from QuickSilver Conjure. I do have awesome friends! ❤

The purpose of this post was more to share my thought process and approach to altar building and fortunetelling, than giving you an instructional bulletin. I hope that some of you find this information meaningful, and apply it to your own fortunetelling practices. 

If you have questions, please post them in the comments section or on my Facebook page

Warmly,

Madame N.
