Ep. 30: It’s Time to Stay Committed to What Lights You Up

The moon, the cards, and the seasons are all lining up to tell us it’s time to focus on ourselves and stay committed to what lights us up, even when we aren’t feeling as productive or creative. This week we’re talking about how to take care of yourself as you start to feel the summer fade and fall take hold. Tune in—this is one of our best! This week we used the White Light Oracle by Alana Fairchild, the Gothic Tarot of Vampires by Lo Scarabeo, and the Soul Truth Awareness deck by Brianna Hovey.

Ep. 29: It is Time to Make a Move

Oh man the cards definitely have opinions on what we’re talking about today!

Ep. 29: It is Time to Make a Move

Ep. 28: It is Okay to Ask for Help

We’re talking about stress this week (and, let’s be honest, probably for the next few weeks). The cards were a great reminder that we need to remember to ask for help when we need it. This week we used the Work Your Light deck by Rebecca Campbell and the Crystal Spirits Deck by Collette Baron-Reid. Life advice for creative types with author/blogger, Megan Whitmer, and author/narrative director for Deep End Games, Amanda Gardner. Looking for us? Follow @thecreativeoracle on Instagram!

This week we used the Soul Truth Self-Awareness Card Deck by Brianne Hovey and the Crystal Unicorn Tarot by Pamela Chen.
