2nd Reading for V. Collins...your Totem Animal.

V. Collins:
Your numbers (compiled from your date of birth: 10/2/1965) are 15-6, with 15 as your Hidden Teacher or Shadow card, and 6, the Lovers as your Soul card.

+ 1965
   1977 = 1 + 9 + 7 + 7 = 10 + 7 + 7 = 1 + 0 + 7 + 7 = 15 = 1 + 5 = 6

I have these same cards, and know that the main gist is about the Choice to Love and the Choice to Fear, that you may find yourself swinging between these extreme vantage points in your life. This is the biggest framework to a life that I know. With Marianne Williamson writing a great treatise on this subject in her brilliant book, A Return to Love. (Love that book!)

Here's the link, or better yet go purchase a copy of Tarot Constellations, by Mary K. Greer. She goes over so much material about our numbers...I highly recommend her book!

Now, to address your 2nd question: What is My Current Totem Animal?

While I have already stated (at this event) that I use Ted Andrew's Animal Speak to better understand my animal totems, which seem to shift to meet the needs of the day/task at hand, but I first used Jamie Sams and David Carlson's Medicine Cards (a great book/card set for beginners, for getting to know this stuff.)

Your Current Totem Animal is the Whale...and I saw your whale diving deep, going as deep as it goes with your life lessons and current reality.

Here's what the Medicine Cards have to say about that, in the following link.

(Again) I saw your whale diving the depths. You spirit is looking to both quiet things down, so your can better hear the voice of your inner wisdom aka your Goddess self, and for you to extricate yourself from what can feel like a three-ring circus on top...know that this is where you can break free of the thoughts/opinions/etc. of others. Now is the time to know your own mind/spirit and to get in touch with your soul work.


*     *     *     *     *     *

Please Note: I am making an exception of doing not just one but two questions for V. Collins: 1. because I am able to; 2. I don't have anyone to read for this a.m.; and 3. she asked. This will not be my standard practice at Jan's Playful Side...this event is slated for one free question per person.]

Day 6: Sage's Reading.

Part 1.
Your numbers...

+ 1958
   1981 = 1 + 9 + 8 + 1 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1

So you are a 10-1, and according to Tarot Constellations (by Mary K. Greer...thank you. Link to free pdf follows)...

...Yours is the Constellation of the Magician. The Principle of Will and Focused Consciousness. The Aces indicate the opportunity to begin new things...The Tens demonstrate the developed skills with which to meet challenges and the results of taking principles to their extremes."

What is changing and how can I best handle those changes? How can I alter my perspective? How do I reach my center and leave the ups and downs to the perimeter?

What is my own personal magic? How do I focus and direct it? Who is my magical self? How can I use the four elements in my life? (The Magician has the sword, staff, pentacle, and cup.) How can I communicate in four ways?

Communication. Self-consciousness. Individualization. Self-expression. Initiative. At-one-ment. Originality.


Unity of Self, the Individual
The Magician represents focused consciousness and will. As a card relating to Mercury, that you are a communicator and skilled craftsperson. As a Magician you work creatively using your hands as well as your mind. You are capable of great mental focus and are self-initiating in your activities. Logical analysis comes easy to you and you use this ability to manipulate anything under the sun...To develop your highest abilities, you need to realize that you can be a channel for a higher consciousness. If you open up to Spirit and let the Divine Will move through you, you may join the company...who are outstanding healers, teachers, leaders, innovators, inventors, and communicators of all kinds.


Unity in Diversity, the Individual in Society
The Wheel of Fortune represents change, movement, and expansion of ideas. It is a card of luck, both good and ill. As the Wheel turns new opportunities appear and old projects reach a new turn on the spiral. Jupiter is most often associated with this card and thus expands the thinking of the Magician to a new level, adding a philosophical perspective…"

Through your numbers and tarot card significators you can clearly see that you wield you own power and can do almost anything with your hands (hands as shapers of your creative reality) and as long as you keep to your center (the Wheel) then you will not get so dizzy with life’s constant little changes…and big ones, sometimes, too.

I truly recommend that you read about the energy of your 10-1 vibe either through the book or the pdf. Mary K. Green also covers the energy of the year that one is into, by adding up your day and month of birth with the current or asked about year.

So, for this year, you are

+ 2016
   2039 = 2 + 0 + 3 + 9 = 14,
the Year of Temperance, which to me is all about creativity, and turning dross matter into Gold.

“YOUR TEMPERANCE YEAR is one in which you creatively combine things in new and different ways. You have the inner endurance to slowly wear away all obstacles with patience and grace. You find resources and assistance you didn’t know were available before: some from friends and coworkers and some from within.

…You build bridges and heal breaches, perhaps through networking and acting as a mediator. YOU WANT TO MAKE THINGS WORK AGAIN. You seek spiritual guidance but you want practical results.”

*     *     *     *     *     *

Part 2.
Your Question: Where to best focus my energies to create the change and life abundance I know is out there for me?

I opened to your basic info yesterday, and this is what came up:
I saw the tool that sailors use to circumnavigate the globe, which feels really important to your reading.

So, right away I knew that you were wanting to set sail, but that you know the lesson of preparation while a life goal is being sought. Travel, for you, is just one way to get to know this world aka school of ours...just one way to open to the dictates of your HIGHER self.

Feels like something from your past (felt it by my left shoulder) is keeping you from totally standing up for yourself…maybe, like me, someone cast their ill-fitting impressions of who you were early on in your direction?

I saw a big (feels red aka your passionate nature and your current desire) umbrella that protects you and yours…you are like a tiger when it comes to protecting your peeps from unwanted attention, people, and events. Also, this shows your social nature…you are unique in that you feel larger-grander-bigger when you spend time with people that you feel connected to.

I saw a magnifying glass…which could mean that you are looking for something small (the small stuff) aka minuscule that may be holding you up…and I saw a snake aka kundalini on level with your throat chakra. Don't hold back...share your truth with your trusted peeps. Do some things still need to be said?

Kundalini (Sanskrit kuṇḍalinī, कुण्डलिनी, pronunciation (help. · info), "coiled one"), in yogic theory, is a primal energy, or shakti, located at the base of the spine. Different spiritual traditions teach methods of "awakening" kundalini for the purpose of reaching spiritual enlightenment." ~online definition

You may be taking a trip to the beach, as I saw a large beach towel.

Back to your question…
I feel that you will continue on your path toward furthering the force that Temperance bestows on your life, this year, and you will be looking at the possibilities for world travel…I could see you on a path much like the woman who wrote the book, ‘Eat, Love, Pray’ to connect with your LARGEST self. And that you will be confabbing with your friends-family-loved ones during the summer to pin things down a bit and guarantee that others might be okay during your possible absence(s.)

I feel that you might be traveling to the world’s beaches (beach towel) in the next say 1 to 8 months. It will shake things up enough for you to see with BEGINNER’S EYES again…which is just what you need (imho) at this juncture.

Those are my insights for this a.m. AS with everything, take what works and leave the rest.

Day 5: Kirstin's Reading (Part 2.)

“What can I do in order to reverse my health problems and get well? I wonder is I am missing something that is keeping me from finally obtaining good health. Thanks.” ~Kirstin

 *      *     *     *     *     *
Dear Kirstin,
I don’t often do medical readings…but I do have two books on the subject ready to refer to, if need be. First, I am going to try to hone into the area of concern…this may come as physical symptoms that correspond in my body as I tune into your vibe.

What I tuned into…
I saw the tip of something pointing at you…I mixed your question up with two others and this is letting me know that we are here—right now—for you.

Also, I saw the strong-bright light that is used for portrait photos…called the key light:
“The key light is the first and usually most important light that a photographer, cinematographer, lighting cameraman, or other scene composer will use in a lighting setup. The purpose of the key light is to highlight the form and dimension of the subject.” ~online definition

Okay. We are narrowing our search.

Then I saw a large white barge on the water…I am feeling like you take your home with you wherever you go (kinda like a turtle)…and that your element is water. I felt (prior to this) that your issue was water-based and that you have issues with your boundaries (I saw a Russian nesting doll prior to officially starting to read for you…a preliminary rush of images sometimes happens when I am eager to tune into psi for the person I am reading for.)

Big barges have been known to carry trash, not always knowing that there will be off-site repository for shared human waste…are you ever constipated? (You don’t have to answer, but I am putting it out there…)

Betty Bethards, Dream Book:
“BOAT. Your emotional self. If at the helm you are in control; if your boat is drifting (this is where I feel your boat is at), you are not in charge of your emotional life…through self-examination, making positive choices, you can change negative emotional trips.”

Melanie Barnum, Book of Psychic Symbols,
“Boat: may suggest a literal boat ride or vacation or cruise; can indicate making your way through your emotions; can represent one’s path or journey through life; may suggest opening a spiritual route or exploring the unconscious…See also HARBOR.”

The barge was one level…with a solid white base, but no stairs to the sky… a floating home. As you are a Star, this may be part of what is frustrating you with your health issues? First you need to drop anchor…or find a harbor that suits you. You—also—need stairs and/or ladders in order to see where you are now and to chart your course for the bigger and better you! Create a platform or scaffolding for what you’d like to see come about in your life…if you want to focus on health, then you will be creating stairs to better understanding. Can you see yourself erecting these?

? - I feel/think that you may be like me, with your home being in the world…with freedom as an essential issue that may keep you adrift at times.

Also, I saw the light at the beginning of the tunnel…has a father-figure in your life died? Or are you your Father’s daughter? Feels like someone who has ahold of your heart is trying to make a/the connection with you. They may be hastening your sense of urgency about your own trip to the other side?

The light is so lovely and its pull towards the d-word is unmistakable…and often connected emotional attachments, still going strong…

Finally I saw a door knob…the old-fashioned kind, with the vantage being from below. This FEELS like it is about Alice, Alice in Wonderland, with the message “Eat Me,” which was all about her getting bigger, so that she could turn that knob. In what ways can you make yourself a bigger presence in your own life and the lives of others?

“After she sits down and starts crying in frustration and scolding herself to stop, she noticed that a little glass box had magically appeared out of nowhere underneath the table. Inside the box was a small cake that had the words "EAT ME" marked on it in currants. After she ate the entire cake, she grew so large that her head struck against the ceiling in the hall. Then she drinks a little bit of the shrink potion again and goes thru the door.”

So, the turnaround in your health could be as simple as drinking more water…taking more baths…spending time near water (rivers, lakes, streams, etc.)…it is in your hands, or in the glass in your hands. The emotional body is usually located in the 2nd chakra, and maybe with this also in the 5th. The 2nd chakra houses the emotional body…and the 5th, is about your finding your own voice in this lifetime. Please don’t quote me with this…I am only loosely tied into these concepts…

Bibliomancy, using Sherrie Dillard’s book Develop your Medical Intuition:
“A sacred illness or disease is one in which an illness or disease serves a divine function. This is what is called a soul contract. It is an agreement some souls make before entering the earth life to use illness or disease as a tool for their higher good. When an illness or disease enlightens, transforms, and awakens us to a truth, knowing, and experience of love and compassion that could not come to us any other way, it fulfills a higher purpose.

The idea that the physical body can be a tool that our emotions, mind, and spirit use to awaken us can be hard to accept and fully understand. This is because we believe that we are primarily physical beings. The body defines us and we often believe that without one we cease to exist. Yet this is simply not true. The body is temporary. The spirit is eternal.

Your spirit will use whatever means necessary to promote your evolution. Sickness and disease can be a vehicle for profound self-awareness…We take the correct medicine and undergo extensive treatments and still we do not heal…”

The material quoted above (thanks Sherrie Dillard) feels right. So, there may be something or some things that you can do that mirror the symbolism of Alice eating the cake that would make her larger, so that she could turn the door knob.

Okay, I am tapped-out…hope that this helps. As always, take what works and leave the rest.

Day 5: Kirstin's Reading (Part 1.)

“What can I do in order to reverse my health problems and get well? I wonder is I am missing something that is keeping me from finally obtaining good health. Thanks.” ~Kirstin

Dear Kirstin,
Thanks for working with me to give me the info I asked for. Your date of birth is 6/25/66, and your numbers are as follows (Thank you Mary K. Greer, author of Tarot Constellations):

 + 1966
    1997 = 1 + 9 + 9 + 7 = 26 = 8

6 + 7 (2 + 5) + 4 (1966 = 1 + 9 + 6 + 6 = 22 = 2 + 2 = 4) = 17 = 1 + 7 + 8

So, you are a 17/8, which is the energy of the Star tarot card for your personality/spirit and 8 reps the energy of soul through the Strength card, which I went over in yesterday’s post. Please see that post for said description, and/or check out this link below:


“Courage to Be Yourself, Acknowledging the Power from Source

THE STAR represents hope in a vision of the future. As the card that follows The Tower, it shows the individual freed from all masks and restrictions, being replenished by the waters of the unconscious. It reps the regeneration of life after the Great Flood. The card pictures Isis Unveiled, sky-clad, using the elements to link the purposes of heaven and earth: “As above, so below.” She is both Earth and Star Goddess fully revealed, signaling the rise of the waters of the Nile, bringing fertility to the land and hope to the people.

(Image from the Thoth tarot deck...Lady Frieda Harris, illustrator.)

As a card relating to Aquarius, it means that 17-8’s are innovative. You are way ahead of your time, and inventor and visionary. As an experimenter, you are willing to try anything at least once. As a visionary, you are able to see possibilities far in the future or off in the distance, yet don’t always know how to relate them to the here and now or to your immediate circumstances.”

(There’s more at the pdf that I shared a link to above.)

I have always loved the Star card. Strength together with the Star show a woman in rare form…strong and receptive. This is Part 1 of 2.

Day 4: Paula's Reading (Part 2.)

Your Question Paula:
"I would like to ask about my love life."

*     *     *     *     *     *

With your question I felt that you've had some kind of disappointment in this area of your life. This is pretty common, but my intuition says that bits 'n pieces of that disappointment are showing up in your current emotional register. Also, I wondered whether you might have danced (ballet?) or do dance? If not that then maybe you are in the midst of your 'Dance of Intimacy,' a book by Harriet Lerner...something to check out, perhaps?

The best part of this reading was that I clearly saw the light of a shooting star...this bright light is in your night sky, so you will have to be poised to look for it. I see shooting stars as wish fulfillment (i.e your wish will come true!) Good news Paula!

Then with that vibe I saw an older model car...kind of boxy and square...this puts me in the frame of mind to address your potential partner (you don't have to say 'yes' to him, but this is who and what I feel is coming up.)

The solidity of the frame of the car and it's age put me in mind of the tarot court card the King of Spades or Pentacles...this is someone who is older than you and firmly in place in their life, all they need is you...and together I can see some road trips involved in your courtship and life with this man...if you chosse it.

(Other) Qualities of the King of Spades, by Mary Greer (book: Understanding the Tarot Court, which I purchased only recently):
"Self-sufficiency; success (especially financial); realistic; dependable; business acumen, takes advantage of resources; reason; brawny; resolute; settled; certain; earnest; patient; tenacious; enduring; materialistic...good provider; treasures; looks for excellence...appreciates...jovial; prefers action to conversation; likes a good time; humorous; likes good food and wine; strong...enjoys comfort and luxury; sensual."

Those qualities feel right...they match up to the vibe I was feeling about the car I saw.

I heard the word 'dominatrix' which might show that YOU are the be all and end all for this event in your will be deciding who and what stays and an exacting way.

Then I saw what looked and felt like batter for a cake, a pound or yellow cake, and you are pouring the batter into a cake pan...this feels like something that you have been cooking up for a while... (for what follows.)

"Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the spectrum. It’s the color that captures our attention more than any other color.
In the natural world, yellow is the color of sunflowers and daffodils, egg yolks and lemons, canaries and bees. In our contemporary human-made world, yellow is the color of Sponge Bob, the Tour de France winner’s jersey, happy faces, post its, and signs that alert us to danger or caution.
It’s the color of happiness, and optimism, of enlightenment and creativity, sunshine and spring.
Lurking in the the dark side of yellow: cowardice, betrayal, egoism, and madness. Furthermore, yellow is the color of caution and physical illness (jaundice, malaria, and pestilence). Perhaps it is no coincidence that the sources of yellow pigments are toxic metals - cadmium, lead, and chrome..."
Measles? I also heard something about measles…usually childhood onset…I am thinking that that has to do with the timing of your question. “Measles signs and symptoms appear in 10 to 14 days after exposure to the virus.” So, say 10 to 14 days or ten to 14 months until this comes to pass.
And, as always, take what works and leave the you know best what works and doesn't work for you.
*     *     *     *     *     *

Day 4: Reading for Paula (Part 1.)

Dear Paula,
Thanks for giving me all of the things I asked for (dob, first name, and subject matter), it is really nice when someone -- you -- pays attention.

Your dob is 11/6/80. Numbers have always been of interest to me...each one has a unique vibe--and for lack of a better word--personality. I got into numerology with a dream and then using the tarot with the books of the Grand Dame of Contemporary Tarot Mary K. Green. She goes further than most, in her book 'Tarot Constellations: Patterns of Personal Destiny.' I also love Ms. Greer's other books on the tarot.

Your numbers are as follows:

11 + 6 + 1980 =
11 + 6 = 17 = 1 + 7 = 8
1 + 9 + 8 + 0 = 18 = 1 + 8 = 9
8 + 9 = 17 = 1 + 7 = 8


+ 1980
...1997 = 1 + 9 + 9 + 7 = 26 = 2 + 6 = 8

So you are a single number person, if your numbers added up to any double digit up to 22 then you would have had two...e.g. my numbers add up to 15, and then 6, so I have both the Devil (as my shadow) card and the Lovers. With single digits each person has a much more focused picture about why they might be here at this time in the Earth School...

Your lesson is represented by the Strength card with the art depicted below, from the Rider Waite deck (easiest tarot deck to get started with) and illustrations by Pamela Smith: (a free online pdf)

"The Principle of Courage and Self-Esteem"
Keywords: Self-Confidence, Fate, Perseverance, Power, Force, Kundalini Energy, Hope, Grace, Balance"...and don't forget about strength.

"Strength as Personality or Soul Card
(This applies if you are a Single 8 or 17-8.)

STRENGTH represents the balance and integration of opposites. Like the magician, the woman in this card has the lemnescate (infinity sign) over her head. She is the female magician or witch, sometimes called the enchantress because of her ability to charm the beasts and animals. [Do you have an affinity for that?] Her power to do this comes from a recognition of the similarities in our natures rather than our differences. She exemplifies how we can accomplish anything we set our minds to by acknowledging our linkage with the world and working in harmony with its principles. Strength represents being attuned to your own inner nature, not denying it. She demonstrates the belief that Will and Desire are not at odds and shows that they can work together. By gentling the wild animal within rather than "breaking it," its will is not subjugated and its spirit remains free..."

Please go to the free pdf (above)and see page 115. There is over a page of information that Mary K. Greer shares about your number and its lessons. Hope this exploration into numerology and the tarot has been fun and informative for you. I see the Strength card as a very passionate card, the Aleister Crowley deck with the illustrations by Lady Freida Harris, shows that side to the card:

Now for your psychic be done in Part 2.
