Daily Draw, December 14th, 2016 — פהל— “Don’t Loose It, Foxy”

img_2999

פהל

Happy Mercury-Day, foxy!

If you are somehow involved in modern spiritual affairs, you must have heard about working with your “shadow-self,”or about discovering your own darkness, which basically means allowing yourself to dwell in those subconscious places your ego firmly attempts to cockblock. (yes… I just used this term on my blog! lol)

Well, today you might just find yourself in that realm, Dorothy! And it’s totally appropriate. In fact, I am all for it. With the Moon still being so full and round, there’s plenty of external and inner-world illumination, so we don’t feel completely lost in the realms of personal bondage, addiction, and shame. Because guess what the פהל permutation, from the 72 Names of G-d, is all about? Yup, it’s about liberating oneself from the sticky and, quite often, shameful bondage of negative habits, harmful lusts, and destructive ambitions.

If you’d like to hear about today’s draw more in depth, here’s a recording of the Live Broadcast from my Facebook Page. I also gave a teaching about the correlation of this card to the frequency of the Devil card in the Tarot system, and the mirroring of The Lovers card into The Devil card. If you are a student of divination, then you are especially going to enjoy watching the video!

I thought it was fascinating how well this specific vibration tied into tonight’s Fit+Foxy Episode, where Mr. Fit and I discussed the ramifications of self-doubt on our personal growth. You can take a listen to the episode here.

Furthermore, the most difficult part of this journey is that you’ve got to take it on your own. We all do! Remember that you are taking this descend to learn of your destructive attachments to gain self-awareness — to improve, grow, and ultimately master your experience!

“Once you become the master of your thoughts,” says, Orna Ben Shoshan, “you will be able to change bad habits and guide yourself to success.” (The 72 Name Cards booklet, P. 25).

I also recorded this short video below, to assist you practicing writing the Hebrew letters of this Holy Name, if you so desire:

 

Tomorrow, December 15th, I’ll be holding another Live session at 2 PM Central, and I hope you’ll join me!!!

The best way to keep up with my Daily Draws and get notified when I am Live is to subscribe to the Live Videos on my Facebook Page.

 

I truly hope this daily draw helped shedding light onto some internally dense planes that needed love and attention. Remember, we never judge. We are being critical though, so that we can increase self-awarness, and through that become more complete and happy individuals.

 

Exquisitely yours,

Madame N.

Unity is the Word of the Day — מיה— Daily draw for December 13, 2016

 December 13,2016

Hey foxy!

Today, on our Live Daily Draw broadcast, I was thrilled to bring forth the message of Love! Yup, today’s divine wisdom from the 72-names is מיה (pronounced Mem Yod Hey), and it’s all about bonding, melting together, harmonizing, and uniting forces. The Gematria value of this permutation is 55.

In fact, if you want to summarize this vibration in a single word, it is Unity!

Below is a brief summary of today’s draw. Moreover, for your convince I have included the full recording of the Live Daily Draw. And I am adding another little clip, helping you practice writing מיה in Hebrew because my Spirit Guide, the Primordial Gloss Fox, has graciously channelled into me a Full Moon in Gemini Harmony Ritual, and so I have shared it in today’s Live Broadcast as well.

If your concerns are of a romantic nature, you are about to hit it on with a person of great emotional and sexual compatibility. On the other hand, if that someone foxy is already by your side, the a passionate encounter is in the air tonight under this bright, and sharp Full Moon in Gemini.

If your inquiries are about business, a creative project, or your social sphere — same is true, just on a platonic level.

Generally, folks are more positive, enthused, and connected today. Co-workers are more willing to support you, friends are going to uplift you, and creative projects will benefit greatly from partnerships and collabs.

Today is all about vibing on the perfect wavelength, with the right crowd.

As, Orna Ben-Shoshan, notes in her The 72 Names Cards interpretation book, today’s success comes “through a union with a compatible person.” (P. 48)

Here’s how you write in Hebrew:

 

Enjoy tonight’s magnificent Full Moon, foxes!

Exquisitely yours,

Madame N.

ערי + Saying “No Thank You”- daily draw for December 12, 2016

Hey foxy!

Feeling pressed today? No wonder! Have you viewed the daily draw video?

Today’s vibrational wisdom comes in the form of the combination ערי (pronounced Ain Raish Yod), from the 72 Names of G-d. The Gemtaria value of this combination is: 280.

It could be family, or work-related. But it certainly feels like your shoulders can’t handle the weight. (I literally am having a problem moving my right shoulder at the moment, so I feel you!). The most challenging aspect of today will, most likely be, the guilt-trippin’ script you are replaying in your head.

Time to change the script, baby! It’s OK to say: “no thank you,” when the old episode of You Aren’t Good Enough starts rebroadcasting in your head.

Have faith, foxy! You ARE doing all you can. And soon you will regain your strength, improve your coping agility, and feel on it. I promise!

As, Orna Ben-Shoshan, puts it: “You will receive clear evidence that tremendous forces are acting on your behalf at the moment.” (The 72 Names Cards Interpretation Booklet, P.47)

So cheer up, buttercup. That rainbow is just around the cloud.

 

Here’s a recording of the foxy Facebook Live session we had about this daily draw:

 

 

Stay exquisite, my foxes!

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.

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.

a ‘Deste’ Love Reading

I have been getting a lot of Deste-related questions recently from folks who want to learn the deck. The Spirit of Deste — and if you read Deste you know exactly what I’m talking about — has been quite pushy about wanting me to give it more attention. Although I am far from mastering this oracle, I thought it would be helpful sharing an actual reading I’ve recently done for a client. Luckily, the client was gracious and has given me permission to share her consultation with you.

In addition, I have a couple of important announcements tucked at the end of this post — so make sure to check them out before you click on and away from my blog 😉

To the Reading, then:

My client wanted to know about the prospects of her relationship with a colleague, whom she’s been involved with for several months now. I drew the Imperial Cross — thanks Dimitra for teaching me this technique. Essentially, it’s a similar layout to what we refer as the Celtic Cross, but Miss Meimaridi calls it the Imperial Cross.

an Imperial Cross layout + a Djan for advice

Dare Reversed (Rx) in the center represents the man you are in a relationship with. By being reversed we see already that the situation isn’t ideal. The card in general foretells of reversals of fortune, and having to wait for what you want. Your situation is influenced by outside forces — it’s not in your own hands. Most likely it’s family issues that interfere with your relationship.
Clouds represent the obstacles. You want clarity, yet this desire isn’t possible at the moment. With the Anchor to the right of the Clouds, it seems like what you really want is clarity in regard to the stability of this relationship.
Gate Rx stands for the fear of the negative influence this relationship could have on your work / career situation. Also, if your guys was waiting for a promotion at work, Gate Rx below his significator card, Dare Rx, it doesn’t look likely.
Assyranta is a female in a position of influence. Is he married or in a committed relationship? It sure looks like that with Assyranta on above Dare Rx that is on top of Gate Rx.
In that case, she is in control of the situation, and he won’t leave her / divorce her.
~ after the reading the client had confirmed she is involved with a married man ~
Zara, the white horse of the diamond suit, shows the bright promises of the past; it looked like this relationship would blossom into a more fulfilling and easier to handle romance, and that the man you are dating would be a suitable choice for a partner.
With Anchor placed in the position of upcoming events, I don’t think you’ll be leaving him soon. Anchor is a card of stability. I do not foresee a major change in the status quo, so to speak, in the near future. It also shows that if he is in another relationship, he’ll continue going between both of you. Butit’s important to remember that the Anchor is a positive card. So it’s quite possible that your outlook on the relationship will become a bit more positive, and so you won’t want to make changes.
The Mice Rx tell us that you have hopes for this relationship to work out, and regain the things that were lost in the near past.
You have people around you that push you to stay in the relationship with him, while others sway you against it. This is shown the reversed Fish card. It makes you feel like others know better than you. You are stuck in the middle, unable to make a decision, and wanting others to decided for you.
Your own feeling is that you are willing to give him one last chance. The Tomb Rx states so.
For now, as seen by the Letter card, you will continue communicating with him.
Bedes Rx is the advice card. It doesn’t show great potential for the relationship because you have a lot working against you. Bedes talks about having to wait for a very long time, and be extra patient to get this relationship to a place that is truly healthy and good for you.

I hope this sample reading was helpful for you. Please feel free to respond in the comments about your experiences with the Deste, and how do you handle love consultations.

Madame Pamita, Johannes, Madame Nadia, & Elvyra at the Hoodoo Heritage Fest 2013

As you may already know, I will be presenting two workshops at the Hoodoo Heritage Festival in California, in the first weekend of May. One of the workshops might be of special interest to you, and so I thought I’d share the details.

Beyond the Reading: Using Tarot, Lenormand, and Playing Cards in Rootwork is a workshop crafted to teach how to use Tarot, Lenormand, and Playing Cards to diagnose yourself or a client and decide which spell to use for any given situation, how to customize that spell for maximum effectiveness, and even how to incorporate your cards into hoodoo spells.

This workshop will take place between 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM, on Saturday, May 3, 2014.

You’ll even get to take home some awesome conjure goodies when you sign up for the workshop.

On another note, I will be on the Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour, along with catherine yronwode and ConjureMan Ali, this coming Sunday, at 5 PM CST. I hope you can tune in, and join the live chat that’s always loads of fun. The show is also archived, and available for later listening.

Better Later Than Never — Bringing Madame Duberckowski to American Fortunetellers

Man card from Madame Duberckowski’s Fortune Telling Cards deckI am a procrastinator, and there’s no point denying it. But to defend myself I must disclose that even though I took the interview with Amelie over a year ago, around last Christmas my house was broken into and my laptop stolen. Along with the computer, an almost fully edited video of this interview was also gone.

So it took me a long time to get back into editing it from scratch. I really wanted to complete this piece because I felt that Amelie and I had an amazing, almost magical, connection; and I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with her about various things in addition to her gorgeous and fun deck. I found Amelie to be warm, funny, and inspiring. I adore her art, and find her cards to be so very different than anything else on the market. Both her attitude and her creations are fresh and upbeat. Not like many other decks that heavily draw upon, and too often completely reproduce, the same old RWS pattern, etc. “Madame Duberckowski’s Fortune Telling Cards” is a stand-alone oracle with nothing remotely resembling it on the market.

I hope you enjoy my tale of finding the deck online, connecting with Amelie, and eventually asking her a few questions about what made her create such a unique pack of cards.

Happy Friday!

Madame Nadia

PS

I’ll be co-hosting the Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour this coming Sunday, with ConjureMan Ali and Deacon Millet. I hope you can tune in, or even better — join us in the chat room.

A Method to My Madness — 6 core principals driving my divination practice

Honey Jar with Lenormand elementsA couple of months ago I was invited to teach a workshop on divination anchored in the context of hoodoo, which is a primary source of magical services I offer to clients. The specific focus of this course was learning to asses magical conditions, i.e. evil eye, by using a divinatory instrument — be it cards, bones, omens, or what have you.

The workshop was a success, and I’ll be offering a more elaborate version at the Hoodoo Heritage Festival held by Lucky Mojo and the Missionary Independent Church next year.

Although this workshop ties directly to the conjure and Southern folk magic traditions, I believe the “Core Rules” I use in my practice are relevant across the board and help polish any forms of divination.

Below is an excerpt focused on the core principals helping me to get a grip on multiple layers of information that often appear in a single consultation. Please keep in mind that the workshop was designed to help individuals assess a magical (usually personal) case.

A Method to My Madness

1. Pick & Stick:

Don’t jump between various systems, but learn the Ins & Outs of one, preferred method. Practice does makes better! Especially when the questions move away from mundane, and inquire the critical. If you want to know whether a neighbor’s son, who is in the hospital because of a terrible car accident and is in critical condition, will live through August— you probably shouldn’t divine on it with the Bunny Tarot you got for Christmas, and have used only once on Easter.

2. Keep it Simple:

Especially in the beginning — diving into a complicated system of divination tends to span more confusion, discouragement, and eventually stasis. Making something more complicated than it needs to be will not make it better.

3. Set Parameters:Vogue Cover

Decide what means what BEFORE you sit down to read… For example, lets say that you are concerned about being jinxed by a co-worker, and your preferred divination method is the Lenormand. You decide to pull two cards on the matter at hand, and you pull first the Dog card, followed by the Lady card. So does this draw mean that a female co-worker is throwing for you, or does it proves your suspicion to be groundless?

The answer completely depends on the parameters you’ve set prior to the reading. If you’ve decided that positive and neutral cards always return a solid YES (without looking into the context of the draw), and your question was: Has Molly been jinxing me? Then the answer is Yes, she was. However, if you decided that positive and neutral cards stand for positive/pleasant outcomes (basing your answer on the context of the draw), then Molly isn’t jinxing you. On the contrary, she is a loyal and supportive colleague.

The reader is the one responsible for setting the parameters. How you set them is completely up to you. But be sure to make these executive decisions prior to a divination session.

4. Formulate CLEAR Questions:

Formulating clear questions is the most important “core rule,” in my opinion. If your questions are generalized and fuzzy, the answers you’ll get will ALWAYS be shrouded in doubt and uncertainty!

Just yesterday an email client has asked to see if “she and her guy” will ever be together. It’s a common way people ask questions. And as a diviner and a rootdoctor it is my job to correct some MAJOR issues with involving the formulation of this question, prior to presenting it to my oracle.

Lets look at the word ever, and how long it lasts. For instance, a young adult might consider a period of three months to last for ever. Now an adult, a Taurus for example ;-), might be willing to wait for a loved one for decades. While a client who believes in reincarnation, and has recently lost a partner, will consider ever to be a lifetime or two.

And what about the word together? To one person it might mean hanging out together at the same space. To another it represents spending time together as platonic friends? Most likely a statement like that refers to a romantic relationship. But in order to clarify what exactly together means, some input and clarification is needed on a case-to-case basis.

Indeed, ever should be framed as an exact period of time; while together needs to be spelling out the type of a desired relationship. So a better question might look like: “Will I and John Doe be in a committed, romantic, and intimate relationship within the next 3 months?” This way both my client and I share the same understanding of the query, and can interpret the results of the consultation appropriately.

5. Question Everything:

A common misconception circulating within the spiritual community for years states that repeating the same question, or asking too many questions will result in confusing the oracle, or even worse, offending it.

If you hold this belief, please ask yourself the following:

Do you really want to work with an oracle, a system, or an entity that is so capricious that it gives you grief for asking for clarification? Or maybe it has a spiritual ADHD, and it cannot retain focus when asked a series of three to five relating questions?

So what’s going to happen if a client comes to you because have a $50,000 and they want to invest it in one of four aggressive portfolios. I don’t know about you, but in cases like this I tend to confirm, reconfirm, and re-reconfirm my answer. So give your oracle a dose of spiritual Adderall, to keep it in focus and in check 🙂

MLClouds6. Assess Your Mental State — Can you read for yourself?

Finally, it’s important to acknowledge that even the best of diviners under certain circumstance is incapable of producing meaningful, and “true” readings when looking into a personal issue of high priority. The fact of the matter is that if a certain situation in our lives gives us anxiety, it renders detachment largely impossible and throws objectivity out the window.

Personally, when I cannot interpret the message of my own divination because there’s just too much going in my life in relation to a specific situation — I choose to pamper myself, and turn to other readers for a second opinion.

No matter what the situation is, I enjoy getting readings from others. It’s a great opportunity to get a different perspective, learn a new technique, and support the diviners’ community by purchasing a reading. And I highly recommend you do it too!

Warmly,

Madame Nadia
