Let us start with the 1st stressor, Family. The 7 of Cups card is saying tensions run high as you feel as though bits of you are spread thin and pulled in many directions. Feel like everyone wants a piece of you? What are your boundaries? The 5 of cups card is saying that there are options and offerings but make sure you are not turning your back to what's being offered to you. The balancing energy is the 6 of cups. A little effort on your part will go a long way in keeping the peace and everyone having a good time,
The second stressor, societal pressure, cultural or religious influences, peer pressure and how that influences you. The 3 of pentacles card says that your hard work has paid off, its time for gatherings, indulgences, parties and sharing, Your personality is saying with the 9 of swords, no f*ing way, I'm dreading seeing so and so, I don't want to, omg another holiday party, no bloody way! So, the balancing energy is the 2 of pentacles, the infinite magic of spending time with your partner or close friend or yourself. Take the time to savor the little things that bring you joy and fulfillment.
Last but not least in terms of stressors is materialism vs spirituality. How are you engaging with the materialism and commercialism of the holiday? These are not mutually exclusive, sometimes we lose balance during the holidays. The 4 of cups card says the although everything is balanced and going well, there is a tendency to have a bit of a self-pity party. The oh woe is me comes shining through. Your materialism says that you'll feel miffed if the beautiful blue Manolo's you had your eye on and wanted as the perfect accessory to your winter white are no longer on sale. Your spirit says with the knight of pentacles that your common sense, responsibility, and practicality are intact and that you can achieve your dreams through perseverance and hard work. The grounding energy is the World card. Meaning , the world is at your fingertips, all you have worked and strived for is there for the taking. Enjoy this holiday season, treat yourself kindly , you deserve it!
Hello, Friends!November TarotscopeThe overall picture for the month is the card strength/justice ( depending on the system strength is the 8th, card with an astrological sign of Leo , justice being the 11th card and associated with venus, in this particular deck it's reversed) This card is about having proper balance which is justice, the balance of the scales. Eternal spirit, your ability to overcome obstacles, your fortitude. This month, you have the energy to stand by your convictions. The sense that is associated with Leo is taste. This is particularly interesting to me since Thanksgiving is almost upon us and its a holiday centered around food. The Hebrew letter correspondence is teth( to twist or coil) or lamed (to urge forward), and the path on the tree of life is between Chesed and Geburah meaning mercy through severity.
The 1st week of the month, the 10 of cups, satiety/ perpetual success is about the emotional fulfillment of something that has been on your mind. The cycle has completed ready for you to start again. The position is in the place of earth, keeping you grounded. The holidays can be an emotionally trying time, so if that's the case for you, keep yourself away from situations that cause emotional flair ups. I recommend no more than 3 days with difficult family members :)
The second week of the month, the ace of wands, is martial ( firey) energy in the position of air ( thoughts) What are you fired up about starting? This is the perfect time to start a new project or business.
The 3rd week of the month, The chariot is about triumph of mind and moving forward. Make sure that you are moving forward positively and not fleeing from reality. The astrological correspondence is Cancer, the element of water. The Hebrew letter, Cheth meaning inner chamber or to separate and the path to protect.The path on the tree of life is Binah to Geborah meaning understanding through severity. Speech is a gift or attribute with this card. You may want to pay particular attention to your speech this month to not set tension flaring! The position of the card is in the element of water, emotions! The chariot is the cardinal sign of cancer, meaning emotions may run all over the place especially around the holidays. Take the time to take care of yourself, if that means separating yourself from stressful situations, then, by all means, do that. Practice meditation, yoga, breathing or anything else that makes you feel good.
Finally, the King of wands, fire of fire. You certainly have the energy to accomplish your goals for the month, inspiring people around you as you lead your way forward, setting a good example. Dare to be different this last week as you're not too concerned with what others may think. There is a tendency to be a little hot-headed or self-centered so it may be wise to limit your exposure to situations that tend to push buttons. Happy
Thanksgiving , see you in December!

This month, I decided to add more cards to give you better insight as to what may be in store for you. I would advise to pay particular attention to your thoughts this month as there were 5 cards in the suit of swords
which correspond to the element of air (Thoughts)
You are being challenged this month to make a choice of the lesser of 2 evils. You have the knowledge and the ability to balance the situation and make the best of it. The obstacle to your resolution may be that you are dwelling on the past, you may be feeling very nostalgic and thinking about times that have passed and vanished. You may be looking for opportunities to use your talents. Find your self-reliance, originality, creativity, and imagination. You may have had some previous challenges with feeling blocked from moving forward. Be really mindful here as your thoughts manifest your situation and by the look of things, you may feel that things can't be worse. This is the end of that cycle, however, you may still feel sorrow, emotional pain, loss or there may be an end to an affair of the heart. We must feel this in order to learn and grow. There is no love without pain and sacrifice. You have keen vision and insight, and the use of your talent is the perfect balance of all the elements to help you move forward to achieve your goals. There may be an opposing force to what you are trying to achieve, the effect of feelings of loneliness and spiritual impoverishment are going to hold you back. Instead, aim for healing, harmony and feeling fulfilled as good fortune is yours. Maybe throw a party yo celebrate! Celebration is crucial because thoughts become things my friends and you may slip back into feeling defeated again if you do not take care to alter your circumstances purposefully.
Just so you know, this is not fate. You have the power to change your circumstances. The mind is either constructive or destructive. How are you using your mind to be constructive???? I want to know so please drop me a line to let me know how you're doing. Please share this with anyone you know who may benefit. I hope I have helped you even just a little bit.

All the best,
Since we are getting closer to the primaries , I wanted to do a forecast about the upcoming election. Political views are not something I espouse, but I do feel strongly that the upcoming election is critical. The question: Will Trump be re-elected?
Answer: His extreme cleverness has him anchored . His presidency could end only if the burden of worry and gnawing feelings come to making a decision.
Childlike innocence about finance ( economy) will lead to pain. Being small minded about issues will not help. . Economic issues become a burden or a cross to bear and that could lead to him staying president. Use your childlike curiosity, choose wisely and his term will end.
I'm probably not writing anything you haven't heard before. If I had to look at the cards and give you a yes or no answer, I would say no to answer the question . No psychic prediction is ever right 100% of the time. In this case, I certainly do hope so!
Hello! I hope you're having a wonderful holiday weekend.
The outlook for the month may leave you feeling a bit of despair at times. Feelings of sorrow, loss, disillusion, and bitterness may arise.
Sound depressing? Despite these feelings, do not give up hope. Look for the positive.
The first week of the month is the perfect time to use your good judgment and wisdom. Be practical.
The second week, the ace of swords is saying its the perfect time for leadership. Attainment of power or goals is within your grasp.
The third week, The fool is lighthearted and innocent. He has purity of heart but lacks discipline. You may feel more freedom and lack of restraint to accomplish what you need to.
At the end of the month, 10 of cups is a culmination of one project, the beginning of another. It brings feelings of contentment, plenty, joy, familial bliss.

‘Vicki’s reading resonated with the issues I am experiencing. She was specific and on point!"
"I had my first reading by Vicki and my mind is blown. She took what I was asking about and gracefully converted into a magnificent analysis of where I am in my life and how I should approach my next steps. Vicki’s readings have depth and soul, and as an added bonus, a touch of humor which adds great levity to this thing called life! Her delivery is gentle and non-judgmental. What blew me away was how intuitive and spot on her analysis was. I did know Vicki years ago but I haven’t seen her in a long time and she knows very little about my life or my psyche. I highly endorse a reading from Vicki to anyone who is navigating work situations, dating, relationships, parenting or just seeking a little bit of light. I have gone to traditional therapy and have plenty of friends but Vicki’s vision has helped me find clarity in my universe. " -JS, NYC
"Thanks Vicki, for your lovely reading! It was a reading that allowed me to gain a better idea of the situation as a whole, but was also detailed enough to let me ponder over what I need to work out and avoid. It has renewed my sense of faith that things may work out in my relationship and hopefully we can start afresh. But if not, at least I know that the most important thing is to work on myself. Thanks again! "
wands represent the element of fire, your actions. Mars(fire) in Leo (strength) You may feel as though you're being challenged or blocked from attaining your goals. We must face up to forces stronger than ourselves. If you find yourself in a situation that seems hopeless,use all that you have learned and fight! One way to feel better is to breathe deeply, here is a link for breathwork https://www.bodyrollingdianneglass.com/subscribe/?aff=10
The first week of the month, you may really feel like you're struggling , or have feelings of unfulfilled success, of your dreams crushed, dealings that sounded good at first but without lasting benefit. Don't be hasty this 1st week, but take the time to reflect, bide your time as there will be a time when a real chance will present itself. The 2 major cards associated are the tower ( Feeling like everything is going t0 blow up) and Strength! The appearance of the 2 seven cards indicate that a welcome surprise or happy event is coming.
The 2nd week of the month, the death card, is about the end of the ways in which you go about things. Especially was of doing things that have not served you in the past. This card scares so many people but I think its beautiful. This is about renewal.Find a new way, new idea , new business venture perhaps?
The 3rd week, the 3 of swords, sorrow. Swords represent the air element, our intellect. This card is the holy trinity. This card is about the possibility of making a painful decision.Put in plain light what others hide in the dark. Swords cut through the BS, they're sharp and may hurt . Ask yourself if you are having false illusions in a situation. Finally, the 4th week , the Knight of Disks. Disks represent the element of earth, our worldly possessions. This card is also called Lord of the wide and fertile land. Valor and prudence are the associated minors and the majors are strength and the hermit. Be clever in your material matters, be patient, industrious, strong and reliable.
What is Anti Aging Anyway?

I've been thinking about what it means to get older, to age and how that's affecting how I see myself.
IF aging is something we can't avoid, why not just embrace it with open arms, with the knowledge that besides the arsenal of creams, lotions and potions there are methods available to us without the invasive nip/tuck , painful needles, or just "letting yourself go" ? I have been using my Yamuna face saver just about every night, because lets be honest, I'm vain and don't want to see fine lines around my eyes or marionette folds around my mouth. Seriously, this works. With a minimum of 10 minutes before bed, I roll away . Its very simple to do and feels amazing... benefits beyond the vanity are relief of migrane headaches, TMJ issues , tinitus and more. ( I also started using Invisilign and the Face Saver has literally saved me... no pain or headaches!) Stay tuned for tips on how to prevent saggy jowls, crows feet , and marionette lines!

I have also been doing the Face Yoga Method. No need to be flexible for this type of yoga, Just a few minutes a day of making strange faces in the mirror absolutely works! Strange expressions you might think contribute to saggy skin and equal signs between the eyes, but Its actually the opposite! Fumiko Takatsu's book is truly worth it, you see and feel results quickly. Below is a video sample of her amazing work! Click Image to purchase.
