Tarot Reading from the Mediterranean

Wow! Finally the adventure we have been talking about doing for the last 5 years is finally happening. Whether it goes the way we planned or not … well that will be another story to share.

My partner and I have been discussing following his dream of sailing a boat in the Mediterranean for the last 5 years. In 2020 we almost did it but Covid hit and the dream was put on hold. This year as the world opens up again we decided to take the plunge. We leave Australia mid April for London then off to wherever we believe we can find our perfect boat (no such thing). More than likely Greece because that is where we think majority of the boats will be available. We are aiming at 6 months this year.

So as I still need some sort of income, I decided what better way than to offer tarot readings that I can do on a boat. I will receive requests for readings via DM on instagram or email iammaleenaeve@gmail.com. Or payment through this website. I will do a 30 minute or 1 hour reading for you and write it all down, then email it to you as a pdf file, no need for an appointment. Once I have received your payment I will send your reading within 7 days.

Why have a story and not share it?

Every now and then I think that everything I’ve experienced in life would make a great novel with sex, scandal and a heroine. Why a heroine you ask? Because I’ve finally worked out I could have saved myself a lot of hard work trying to find a hero by being my own hero. I took the knight in shining armor, riding the white horse literally. I think I would have to embellish a fair bit to make my story a novel and I would rather share the truth of it. I was worried that others who were and still are a part of my story would be upset by it but it is my story and if they see it another way, they can write there own because their story could help others too.

Here is a little from part 2

It all started 13 February 1999, I was 21 years old sitting in the back of a limousine on the way to my wedding. I was sharing the limousine with my father and my bridesmaids; Dad was silent and the bridesmaids were excited about being driven somewhere in a limousine. I remember being so nervous…

Is My Story Worthy of Being Told?

I have just finished a 7 day writing challenge called Dare to Express with Jolie Dawn author of Empowered, Sexy and Free. The challenge for me is overcoming the fear of sharing My Story with you, but realising that by sharing My Story I could potentially help others. Whether that is just one person or millions, if I only help you my lovely subscriber then I have fulfilled my purpose.

This particular story triggers feelings of guilt because of the way I never took responsibility for my own journey, I took the easy way and allowed others to dictate how my life should look.  The beliefs bestowed upon me my whole life gave me a template to follow and I never thought about why I personally had these beliefs, I just did.

I am sharing a very rough draft of part of my story with you in this blog post, if you would like to hear more of it please subscribe to my newsletter at the end of this post.

I hope my story helps you through your story.

Pretending to be someone you are not may allow you to avoid conflict and losing people you love but you will lose yourself. Be yourself ALWAYS. If you don’t like something, say no thank you. If you really want to do something and others are telling you that you shouldn’t go and do it. (Disclaimer I do not condone putting yourself or others in danger).

I had it all. I’d been told that I had runway model looks, being skinny in the late 90s was what every young woman strived for and it came naturally to me. I didn’t have to pay rent because I had moved back home to my parents’ house. I had just started a new job in an office, so I felt very grown up. I was surrounded by friends who always had time for me and a fiancé who was very pleased to marry me, in fact I believed he really couldn’t possibly do better. My parents loved me and they were paying for my wedding and they had secured us a place to live. Life was easy. I sound like a spoilt brat, right?


I also didn’t like conflict, or having to explain why I wanted to something. I was having sex out of wedlock and every night before I went to sleep, I would pray to God and ask for forgiveness so that I would not go to hell if I died during the night. I was sneaking around, lying to my parents where I was if I didn’t come home on the weekend. I lied about being a smoker and I had to watch every word that came out of my mouth. I went to church every Sunday morning and when I didn’t, I made up a story about where I was so that I didn’t have yet another yelling match with my mother or have my father quote bible verses to me. I was a 21-year-old woman who didn’t bother to think for herself or ask for what she wanted because she knew what the reaction or answer would be. Why is a 21-year-old woman not doing whatever the fuck she likes?
I lived with constant guilt, anxiety and fear of forgetting to pray for my sins, to the point of waking in the middle of the night and praying again. I was imprisoned by 21 years of Pentecostal church beliefs and never being a good enough Christian, therefore never truly worthy of love. I believed that once I was married everything would be fine because I wasn’t committing a sin anymore. I would finally be FREE!

2021 was difficult for me

2021 was probably more difficult than 2020 for me. 2020 was the beginning of COVID-19, we didn’t have many restrictions where I live in Queensland, Australia and I was looked after during stand downs with government payments. My partner and I got along as well as can be expected when you are suddenly with eachother day in, day out for several months. I started my tarot reading journey, collected many tarot decks and started getting paid for online readings.

At the end of 2020 I went back to work as a flight attendant and started to get busy but then the restrictions came back in for other states which made it hard to fly. There were some government payments during 2021 but not enough to get by on. I resigned as a flight attendant, a job I loved dearly due to those I worked with but the stress of less work and the 1 1/2-2 hour commute was no longer worthwhile. So after 8 years flying I got a job as ground staff at my local airport and enjoy a 10-15 minute commute. I was sad to leave my work colleagues (friends) but it was a choice I needed to make financially. I miss everyone so much.

My new job has been harder to grasp than I thought it would be. But with determination, I will get it and go to work one day without the anxiety I suffer now.

2022 for me is…FAKE IT UNTIL YOU MAKE year.

I will achieve all my goals and 2022 will be a new beginning for I Am MaleenaEve! ❤️

Witches allergic to cats…

Hey there fellow Spiritual beings, it’s been a long time between posts, and for that I am truly sorry.

To bring you up to speed with what I have been up to in the last few months during COVID, I will leave some dot points.

  1. I have started doing Tarot Readings for total Strangers, mostly referred to me via Word of Mouth
  2. I have been posting regular Card of the day on Instagram
  3. I have not been to work since the end of March
  4. Thank God for Job Keeper
  5. I have allergies that have been a problem for 75 days now. I have Atopic Eczema on the usual places. This is a problem for me because I haven’t had eczema for 20 years. Things in the environment cause my eczema to flare up. I have never had it on my face, especially around my eyes. My eyes have been red, itchy and puffy for so long. I have given up wheat, gluten and dairy as advised by a Homeopath and my GP. I was finally prescribed a cream that worked wonders around my eyes and they cleared up. Today I went in my friends car and bam my eyes were itchy and i could feel them swelling up. I thought it must have been the cheese or the red wine I had last night, but when I got home my partner said CAT. And yes my friend who kindly picked me up in her car owns a CAT (a beautiful Rag Doll). I have owned cats all of my life except the past 8 years and now I and highly allergic to dander. I remember my GP mentioning it, cat owners carry fur and dander with them all the time without realizing it. The cat licks itself clean and the protein from the saliva goes on the fur that flies off into the air and attaches itself onto clothes, furnishings etc… The cat can’t help it and neither can the owner. My friends car was clean and vacuumed. What to do?

So, this Witch is allergic to cats, what familiar will ride through the night on the back of my broomstick?

Any other Witches suffer with allergies? Especially to CATs?

The Lovers…

The Lovers from Ethereal Visions Illuminated Tarot Deck
by Matt Hughes.

It is the start of Gemini season, so I decided to do a blog post on The Lovers. As you can see the illustration of The Lovers by Matt Hughes is different to Pamela Colman Smiths.

  1. The lovers embrace
  2. No Sun
  3. No Angel
  4. No erupting volcano
  5. No trees
  6. No snake
The Lovers
Left: Ethereal Visions
Right: Smith-Waite Tarot

Meanings

Upright: Unification, choices, harmony, relationships

Reversed: Separation, imbalance, conflict, disconnection

How romantic is this illustration? Am I right? This couple look like they just can’t get enough of each other and their embrace is so gentle. They want to be with each other because they love each other, not because of lust, they don’t look like they are about to tear one an others clothes off.

The roses are perfect, not one of them is withered or dying, they have been tended to with care and love so that they can bloom. Just like a loving relationship when both people care and want to be with the other. They have chosen to be together.

There is no harm meant in this illustration, there aren’t even thorns on the rose stems.

Instead of having the couple looking up at the Angel wanting help, they are being looked upon by Angels as depicted in the gold wings in the top corners of the card. I really love this illustration and even though it is so different to Pamela Colman Smiths I still read it the same way.

When I reverse the card I see the couple being forced together, falling into the archway, the roses petals fall off and the angel wings get ruffled, it all falls apart. The love story is no longer.

Knight of Wands…

Knight of Wands from Ethereal Visions Illuminated Tarot Deck

Meaning

Upright: Determination, energetic, impulsiveness, passionate.

Reversed: Anger, ego, frustration, pessimism.

Let’s Go! We’ve got this! That’s what I see in this illustration of the Knight of Wands. He’s in a hurry to join the rest of his army to fight for and protect those who need it. Even his beautiful horse is excited to join in the action.

There’s no rest for this Knight, always on the move. There’s a fire under his butt urging him on. His passion to be the hero and protector keep him going. He won’t stop until it’s done.

He is a leader, he will encourage others to keep going, stay alert, don’t stop yet.

He has confidence and knows what he wants and nothing is going to stop him from accomplishing it.

There’s a problem however with go, go, go…

The Knight can only keep going until his body and his horse says “no more, I need rest to fight another day.” This card may turn up in a spread reversed and I suggest it is time to take a step back , look at what you have achieved so far, be proud. Now take some time to rest, all the problems will still be there tomorrow. You are still a hero. If you keep pushing on this way you will only become frustrated and angry, not only with yourself but anyone or anything nearby. You don’t want to do or say something you’ll regret.

I noticed the lizards i the top corners of the card and did a little research. They mean: vision in the midst of action and they are a reminder that big results come from small conscious efforts.
