Take a load off. You deserve a rest. 🪁

Welcome back to Sunday Scripture, a weekly three-card reading to help you to future-proof your week.

Hello lovelies, this is your reading for the week ahead, beginning September 14th, 2020. BUT, as with all readings, if you have been guided towards this page at ANOTHER TIME, trust that it is MEANT TO BE and applicable to your life now. This has always been true for me and I’m sure it will be for you too if you can just sit back and surrender to the he/she/it that guides you. There is a bigger energy present in all our lives – patient, ready, loving (albeit in a sometimes brutal way) – waiting for us to open up and let it in. The more you look, the more you learn to see. The more you listen, the more you start to be able to hear.

As we move into the third week of September, the focus is on looking at and reassessing our boundaries around what and how much we take on, paying close attention to what we are carrying and what new tasks and chores we agree to add. Instead of all work and nothing else, incorporate play into your life and spend the latter half of the week enjoying and even sharing that activity worth others. That way, when it comes to the weekend, you will be revved up and recharged, ready to take on the world again as you see fit.

This reading’s cards come from the Dreaming Way Tarot; deck by Rome Choi, published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc. with artwork by Kwon Shina. Check out their website – if you can find it (I can’t) – if you like what you see and see or go to Amazon to get your own deck.

The cards drawn are:

  • The Ten of Wands
  • The Queen of Cups
  • The Page of Wands

Watch the video below to get the full reading, then send me a message and share what it awoke or sparked in you.

Our card for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday is The Ten of Wands. In it we see a man – worn thin, exhausted, bent double – picking up sticks. Yet as he stoops to pick the next one up, note how he’s also dropping several more from the pile he’s collected previously, sabotaging what he already has in attempting to manage and juggle more. This card is is telling you to stop being everyone and eveyrthing’s “yes” (wo) man and instead start becoming your own personal advocate, for if you don’t look after yourself, pretty soon you won’t be much use to anyone else either and nobody wins. Try putting down a few wands. Experiment with how it feels to have a “later” list and even to say “no”. Saying “no” can be super scary and even rock a few boats, but it gets easier and people do adapt. And soon you’ll be feeling so much better anyway, what other people say and think won’t matter so much. Start by listing the things you are carrying and sorting them in order of importance. You aren’t super human. You can’t be all things to all people. So work out who and what you want to serve and put that and them first. Later – if you have space, energy and time – you can add to this with things further down your list.

Our card for Thursday and Friday is The Queen of Cups, a super lovely and really positive card. Here, we see a woman and her child sharing a wooden throne, looking out across the landscape together. This card makes me think of a mother and daughter curled up on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn watching their favourite movie. It feels special because usually the mother, who is after all a queen, is working and the child is left alone to entertain herself with her own devices and here they are united in a treat, both indulging in time off. Take YOUR weekend early this week and put your feet up. You DESERVE a rest. Better yet, check in with your inner child and ask them what they would really like to do. Maybe they want to bake something or draw a picture? Maybe they want to go out foraging? Maybe they want to visit something of cultural interest or go somewhere entirely new? Whatever your inner child wants – and your real children too if you are a fur or skin child mother – indulge them for a few days in order to recoup, fortify, refurnish and restore. You will thank yourself for this later.

Our card for Saturday and Sunday is The Page of Wands, which basically means time to go back to work. After having treated your week like a weekend: the message now is treat your weekend like your week, taking advantage of all of the power and energy that slowing down and resting and playing has cooked up. There is encouragement here too, because in order to leap into this new space of creating you will need to get wet. That means take off your socks and shoes and risk damaging your pedicure because the real treasure is in that dark inner place where the things you resist hide. The universe is calling upon you to birth a new project, or to release the one you have been nurturing and cultivating for some time. But in order to do so you need to also get up close and personal to some of the things you have been carrying around in order to release them. To have a healthy birth, for that baby to be healthy, there first needs to be a purging – much like in an actual birth where the body rids itself of all that it has been carrying in advance of delivering the infant. First purge, then labour and deliver. Do it this way and you will be more likely to achieve the success of which you dream.

Is it in my highest good to walk away from this relationship ‘right now’, or am I supposed to stay where I am for the time being? 🧵

Relationship reading for romantic, familial and platonic relationships to see if the person in question is worth all of the effort and/or even supposed to still be in your life.

Relationships can be tricky things, especially if we really care for the person we are with, and even more so if we have been together for a long time. But regardless of the duration of your relationship: knowing whether you are in the right place and just journeying through something on a cosmic level that needs to be aired and shared and is supposed to be happening to and for the both of you in order for a trauma (yours or ancestral) to be healed, or whether you are stuck stubbornly treading water because the path you were on together has reached its end and you just aren’t ready to see and accept that as the case yet, is pretty important and vital. Getting it wrong can lead to unnecessary pain and cost time in years. We come together for a reason, always, no matter who we are with and who we meet. Even the disasters are supposed to be. What isn’t supposed to be, however, is a prolonged bad anything. It is not ok to be in a relationship where there is a lack of respect. It is not ok for there to be a dismissal of personal boundaries. It is not ok for there to be shouting and anger and unkind words if those actions aren’t swiftly followed by a retraction, surrender and apology. There are good relationships and there are bad relationships and there are extenuating circumstances. But even here there are lines and there is a limit to what we should be ok with.

Are you putting up with more than you should be and accepting less than you deserve?

Are you in a stalemate and waiting for someone who doesn’t want to, or has been left behind, to catch up and change?

Are you accepting second, or even third or fourth, best behaviour when you need and in your heart you know you should be experiencing so much more?

This reading is intended to be a guide to help you to sort through the questions that you are juggling so that you can come away feeling more decided and clear. It is not a black and white answer. It is not a “yes” or “no”. It is a conversation you can have with yourself while or after you are listening to me to hold up the mirror of truth to what is. What you do next is up to you.

This reading’s cards come from the Dreaming Way Tarot; deck by Rome Choi, published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc. with artwork by Kwon Shina. Check out their website if you can find it (I can’t) if you like what you see and see or go to Amazon to get your own deck.

The cards drawn are:

  • The Wheel of Fortune
  • The Six of Pentacles
  • The Seven of Swords
  • The Nine of Pentacles

Watch the video below to find out what it’s message is. Then send me a message and share what it awoke or sparked in you.

Below is a brief summary of the cards pulled in case you don’t have time to watch the video. But you will get much more from it if you do.

The Wheel of Fortune sits in the position of the past and shows a women spinning at a wheel with a spindle, trying but failing to spin a perfect spool of yarn. She’s on her knees, up close and personal to her equipment, putting her heart and soul into it. And her intentions are pure. Yet we can see she’s failing miserably, unable to produce a satisfactory, or even a useable, result. Instead, what she is producing appears to be a tangled mess. This card indicates that in the past you have tried, over and over, to create and to live within a healthy right relationship with both yourself and your partner(s) but there have been blocks that have always stood in your way and no matter how often you showed up or how hard you tried, something was always there thwarting your efforts and tearing your achievements and progress down. Perhaps this was just your fate and there is/was nothing you can or could have done about it? Perhaps it’s because it takes two to create a beautiful relationship and you have/are mostly sat working the wheel alone? Or perhaps it’s simply because you are forever choosing the wrong thread? Sit with this and reassess the situation and let that guide you how to best continue.

The Six of Pentacles sits in the position of the present and shows us a woman begging at the feet of a man. She is wearing white, as well as wearing a turban, which shows us she is on a spiritual path and that her intentions, at least here, are pure. Next to her there is a beggar, humbled and desperate, happy to accept any scraps that are given regardless of their quantity or quality. But the man they are prostrating themselves to, who looks at least materially wealthy, as in rich in objects and earthly things, is on a different path and has distractions which do not concern them. They are there as dependants, things that need taking care of once in a while, things that can be subdued and placated with a little every so often, like a pet, but not there as a focus of energy or attention in his life. Neither the woman nor the beggar are a priority, or even of much concern or importance at all. Which leaves the woman having to pay for the attention and time she gets in acts of service and kindness and the beggar involuntarily wearing a crown of humility and gratitude for something that is essentially useless. One has become a prostitute in an attempt to get their needs met, the other an acolyte. And all the while the former is still hoping to receive time and tenderness and the latter something useful like a job. This card is calling into question the matter of balance in your life and how even and fair things are. If there is inequality in your relationship; if one person is giving too much and the other showing up only to take: things need talking about and changing immediately if there is to be a harmonious future ahead.

The Seven of Swords – which pairs with this card in the present – highlights more energetic imbalances. Here we see a man running away from us, legging it home in order to stash his horde of swords. He is a thief, running off with what isn’t his because instead of earning it fairly or being given it freely as something that wanted to be given, he has snuck in and taken it regardless, to have and to keep all for himself. There is no unity here, no comradeship, no ‘you’ and ‘me’. It is all ‘mine’, ‘mine’, ‘mine’; absolutely no sharing. This man is scared that he will not have enough or not be prepared for whatever it is he believes is coming and for that reason he is not working together with you; he is just building his own home according to his design. This could be a mental home or a career home, but it’s not a love one. For a love reading: note how there are no love or romance cards. We are lacking the suit of Cups. And we are lacking the energy of union and comradeship too. It’s each to their own and one man against the world, so where does that leave you? Maybe you are included in this ‘my house’, ‘my world’ mentality. And if so: is it where you really want to be? Is it the energy you want to fill a home with? And if not: where does that leave you and what is happening to your house?

The Nine of Pentacles sits in the space of the future and shows us a woman celebrating financial success after having planted a crop of seeds which have grown to yield a healthy crop. This card is telling us that we have to separate our energies and focus more on ourselves. Which means we also have to stop pouring all of our time and energy into others. The overriding message here is, “first fix yourself”, applying your own oxygen mask before turning to the problems and dramas of those around you, for they will always be there and you can never keep up because the world is forever turning. If you can do this while in your current relationship and choose to do so: then by all means try. The universe is behind you here because it’s in the cards for you to succeed in what you turn your hand to. But if you find that you are too distracted or your time is not your own, or you are not emotionally able to focus on or begin anything from the space you are in now: then the message is to cut the thread, disentangle your energy and your life and begin again alone. You are strong and whatever you apply yourself to, so long as you are not distracted by things that are outside of and, ultimately, beyond your grasp, will grow. Decide how you want to grow and what you want to be growing and then figure out the type of soil you need to be tilling and nurturing.

Hit me where it hurts 💔

Sunday Scripture: to help you to future-proof your week.

This is your reading for the week beginning September 7th, 2020 – but as with all readings, if you have been guided towards this page at another time then trust that it is meant to be and applicable to your life now.

As we move into the second week of September, the focus is on weathering emotional injury (injury that is incurred as a result of the actions and words of others), turning our attention to new projects and rising above and riding the storm. In the first half of the week, we find ourselves challenged on multiple levels by those around us and their words and actions hurt. The second half of the week lends some catharsis to this in the form of purpose and work, providing us an outlet and a channel for our hurt. And the weekend opens up a space for introspection and self-evaluation, a time to be thankful for how far we have come but also to acknowledge the price we have had to pay and the storms we have and still are having to weather.

This week’s reading comes from the Radiant Rider-Waite Tarot deck, published by U.S. Games Systems, INC., with artwork based on drawings by Pamela Coleman Smith. Check out their website if you like what you see and see or go to Amazon to get your own deck.

The cards drawn are:

  • The Three of Swords
  • The Three of Pentacles
  • The King of Cups

Watch the video below to get the full reading, then send me a message and share what it awoke or sparked in you.

Our card for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday is The Three of Swords. This card is often a difficult card, especially while we are travelling through it, but it is also a valuable resource and an opportunity to go inside. Find stillness and really take time to learn from your experiences. What are the messages that you are receiving from these altercations and slights? Get out your journal and make notes, you will look back and thank yourself for the gems you left. The Three of Swords tells us that the start of the week could contain some emotional conflict. This might be an argument with a friend, a disagreement at work, a lover betraying you, or a stranger flinging insults for no apparent reason. Or it might mean loss; loss of someone you really care about. All of these things hurt and the wounds they inflict last. Be gentle with yourself and find time to tend to this. BUT… this is also an ideal time to let the tears flow and really open up and empty out what is trapped inside your heart. What other long-held grievances are you keeping in there? What trials and traumas rest hidden so that only you can see them? Embrace the gift of the suffering this week and use it as a vehicle to release a life’s worth of carrying. Cry and be proud of yourself for the gift of this purging.

Our card for Thursday and Friday is The Three of Pentacles, a much lighter and brighter card than it’s sister above. This card is all about starting new projects, being creative and building things, and working with others to combine skills. And it’s about working on something of worth and birthing a project that is sacred, whether it’s sacred with a big ‘S’ and applicable to the world as a vehicle for transformation and healing, or sacred with a small ‘s’ and meaningful just to you. Perhaps, too, you could use this energy to transform your pain into purpose, betrayal into beauty, trauma into triumph, rejection into radiance, taking the hurts from the start of the week and releasing them here.

Our card for Saturday and Sunday is The King of Cups. This is a good end to the week as cups are all about love and relationships and kings represent mastery, so the King of Cups reveals our having achieved (or being in the process of achieving) mastery of these things. The king tells us we have a good grasp of our emotions having done a lot of deep inner work over the years, facing up to our demons and successfully releasing as many of them as was possible; maybe even more of them than we think we have. And for those we still carry, we are able to be honest about them now and are in the process of purposefully attempting to put them out. BUT… as we all know, some things – people, places, events – are harder to part ways with than others. However, doing personal work results in growth and growth results in becoming different from what we were before and therefore to those around us. So if you are feeling alone and without a tribe, because your tribe no longer feels like a safe, friendly space or a comfy home to reside within, have no fear. Your new tribe is coming, you are just in a liminal, central holding space where there is still old stuff that needs to be released before your true SOUL TRIBE can come in.

I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight. ⭐️

Sunday Scripture: to help you to future-proof your week.

This is your reading for the week beginning September 1st, 2020 – but as with all readings, if you have been guided towards this page at another time then trust that it is meant to be and applicable to your life now.

As we move into the first week of September, the focus is on the changing season and what it brings to light within. We find ourselves being called upon to sit in silence and stare deep into the mirror of our minds, mining our hearts and souls for all that they wish, want and desire. And we are called upon to compare what we want to what we have, and to pull out the weeds that are taking up too much space. Only then can we pick a path, a true path, and get walking towards our bright, shiny new future. A week of optimism and purpose awaits.

This week’s reading comes from the Radiant Rider-Waite Tarot deck, published by U.S. Games Systems, INC., with artwork based on drawings by Pamela Coleman Smith. Check out their website if you like what you see and see or go to Amazon to get your own deck.

The cards drawn are:

  • The World
  • The Tower
  • The Chariot

Watch the video below to get the full reading, then send me a message and share what it awoke or sparked in you.

Our card for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday is The World. She calls upon us to imagine a better future, one filled with bright, shiny things. What would your life be like if you could have everything you desired? Where would you live, for example, and who would you live with? What would you be doing with your time and during your days? What would you look like? Sit yourself down in front of a mirror and start to imagine that life all around you and fill in all of the mirror’s face with its details. September is calling upon you to get real about what you want and to make getting it a priority. Stop putting it off and putting others first. Now is the time and the season for you to be you.

Our card for Thursday and Friday is The Tower. In the Rider-Waite deck, this card is never a welcome sign, for she comes with flames and people abandoning a crumbling building in flames, which looks, at the same time, very much like a prison. This card always reminds me of the fairytale about Rapundzel, the kidnapped damsel in the tower, who is daily called upon by a handsome prince to let down her long luscious locks so that he might climb up to see her. In this sense, living in the tower space is akin to being entombed by a wicked witch with people from outside always seeking to come in to steal things you cannot afford to give. In today’s reading The Tower card is calling upon you to spring clean your life, taking a long hard look at all of the components in it and turning out those that are no longer good. For just as The World is asking that you imagine all that you want, The Tower is asking that you balance that energy by owning up to and releasing all that you don’t. For without sacrifice and letting ago, there is no room for new things to enter.

Our card for Saturday and Sunday is The Chariot. She is calling upon you to pick a side, make a decision and walk the path of your true choice. Stop living your life for other people. Stop allowing the push and pull of various other forces to dictate your choices and decisions and choose your direction, your own most favoured one. Get back on path and move towards what you know in your heart to be right. Free from the baggage represented by The Tower, you are more able to make pace, catching up for lost time. Don’t worry if you have spent years in a bad situation or relationship. Right now is the right time for things to be happening, and all that came before was simply necessary learning in order for you to get here and get to where you are supposed to go. Our difficulty informs us and our pain breaks us open to let the light flow in. You are now fully awake and ready to begin the real journey.

Is it safe to trust this person? 💔

Relationship reading for romantic, familial and platonic relationships to see if the person in question is being true to their word and pure in their intentions. A.K.A. Can you rely on them and trust what they say to be true?

So often when we start dating someone or when we meet someone new and start the dating process of becoming friends there is a lot of confusion and mixed messaging that goes on. This poorly communicated information can lead to unnecessary wounding and pain along with a whole lot of uninvited stress and lost time.

The same can be said for committed relationships where things are sometimes said by one party in the heat of the moment, to hell with boundaries, feelings and consequences. And from deception comes disappointment and loss of confidence, security, safety and trust. These are big wounds and not to be taken lightly.

This reading’s cards come from the Animal Tarot Cards deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine, published by Hay House with artwork by Dan Craig. Check out their website if you like what you see and see or go to Amazon to get your own deck.

The cards drawn are:

  • The Page of Swords
  • The Seven of Swords
  • The King of Swords

Watch the video below to find out what it’s message is. Then send me a message and share what it awoke or sparked in you.

The Page of Swords – this person is on an intellectual pursuit to better themselves. They mean well and really are trying to improve upon who they are and how they view the world. In their actions towards you, they are sincere, but they tend to leave out the pleasantries. If you can take the message they have to give without condemning them as the messenger, then you will be ok and you can do well together. The question is, can you?

The Seven of Swords – this person has a tendency to be a bit of a thief, however, taking without asking and feeling that they are entitled to. Think of them like an energy vampire or, even, a bit of a narcissist. But, as we see in the Seven of Winter, they are also likened to the magpie, a bird who collects trinkets because it is in his nature to think first to his own nest. You are being cautioned here to protect what is yours, to hold strong boundaries, and to only give what you can afford to lose or only what you know you will receive in equal in return. This is a warning. All is not necessarily as it seems. Do not be swayed by shiny objects. Do not take things at face value. Think about what you really want and need. And feel beneath it to what is really going on.

The King of Swords – is who this person can become if they really set their mind and heart to it and if life then goes their way. It is also who they are at their core. The King, however, can be read two ways, and who your king becomes is very much up to him (or her) and how they choose to live their life. If your king remains on a path of self betterment and discovery, then he will be a sharp, clever, honest, loyal, steadfast and true companion who will do well in life and take you along with him wherever he goes. However, he does have a tendency to be more head than heart and to overly think and intellectualise. His emotions are there, but they are buried deep below the surface and not often expressed or on show. If your king fall off his path or continues to walk alongside it or head off into the undergrowth ignoring it entirely, however, it will be a different story. This king will be bitter, frustrated, full of anger that he tries but fails to suppress. He will be cold, hard, emotionally unavailable and aloof. He will hate himself for his failure to meet his own expectations in life and as a result hate everyone else too. And this disappointment and self-directed rage will ultimately get projected and reflected onto you. It will take a strong partner to walk alongside this king, one who is not afraid to mother both his human body and his soul. This is not an easy partner, but he (she) can be a great one if they just do the work.

There is hope, if you can hold out for it. 🌙

Sunday Scripture: to help you to future-proof your week. 

This is your reading for the week beginning August 24th, 2020 – but as with all readings, if you have been guided towards this page at another time then trust that it is meant to be and applicable to your life now.

As we move into the last week of August, the focus is on spring cleaning relationships, taking time out to think, reassess and heal (if we need it), and trusting that the future is bright and the Universe has our back. This might mean saying goodbye to people in our lives who have been with us since childhood, or quitting a job. Don’t panic. It’s all a necessary and very purposeful part of the long-term plan.

This week’s reading comes from the Animal Tarot Cards deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine, published by Hay House with artwork by Dan Craig. Check out their website if you like what you see and see or go to Amazon to get your own deck.

The cards drawn are:

  • The Five of Winter (Swords)
  • Awakening (The Hanged Man)
  • The Ace of Spring (Wands)

Watch the video below to get the full reading, then send me a message and share what it awoke or sparked in you.

Our card for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday is the Five of Winter, which shows us two dogs fighting over ownership of a piece of rope, both with jaws locked fast around it refusing to let go. This battle of wits, strength and stamina takes place close to the edge of a cliff on a very blustery day. The air is thick with clouds and full of leaves. Yet they see none of this, not the soft green grass beneath their feet, nor the delicate yellow flowers, not the peaceful blue sea to their back, nor the soon to be arriving storm. They have eyes only for each other, and they are eyes of war. Where in your life can you relate to this? Where is there a loss of mature and heart-centred communication? This card is a warning that things in your house aren’t right. It’s time to get yourself out of the way and change course. You are in a situation that can only lead to more. More fighting, broken promises, disappointments, hurt, pain, rejection, negative energy, name-calling, and blaming and violent outbursts. No good can come of it. Not while both parties are fighting over the same thing, from different perspectives, neither willing to let go. Is your pursuit worth all that effort? Could this energy not be better spent? If you back down and apologise, regardless of whether you believe yourself to be wrong or not, will this change things, will the matter be resolved? Could it be this simple? Will changing your behaviour change anything? Or is this a situation one where continuing to interact with this person or environment will only lead to more conflict because your boundaries will be ignored? Think about what you want and what is possible and then act with integrity as you either back down or back away. Take responsibility for what is yours and then leave the rest behind.

Our card for Thursday and Friday is Awakening and it asks us to look at things in a different way. The giraffe spends most of his life with his head high in the air surveying the greater landscape. He can see friends, and predators, coming from miles away and therefore take time to plan. But does this constantly looking ahead and behind, spinning his head all around, really help him in the present moment? Does he not miss out on the smaller, equally as important and vital things, like the fruit ripening on the trees, the leaves opening to perfection, the butterfly exiting the cocoon. And is he really even grounded? This card is asking us to step inside and to sit down in silence and meditate. The situation that is foremost on your mind right now, or situations, can be seen through multiple lenses. What if everything that is happening to you was happening for a reason, a good reason, and what if you are simply misinterpreting the signs, what if your resistance and emotional response is actually blocking it from moving on? Try to look at things differently. And try to look at them in more detail. Like your boss might be giving you hell because he’s in the middle of a divorce or his kid is dropping behind in school. Or your partner might be clashing swords up against you because he is going through something personal that he hasn’t shared. Or maybe it’s just that your journey together is over and you haven’t owned that openly yet? Not all things can be fixed. And not everything can be resolved by taking the higher stance. Go inside. Find the silence. Feel your way around the situation from all angles. Then, when you are more sure of your direction, try navigating again. And trust your inner instincts, even if what they say you don’t much like.

Our card for Saturday and Sunday is the Ace of Spring. This is where we can take a deep sigh and sink into a comfortable knowing that this, everything that right now feels so unfixable and unmanageable, is all going to be alright. The Universe has our back. We are not alone. Powers greater than us are watching over us and pulling the strings. We just need to relax, surrender and retract our claws. All good things come to those who wait. And you have waited patiently. This time of conflict and turmoil and loggerheads is almost done. Hang on in there this is the last leg. Wait until you see the signs and then leap into action following them. The castle on the hill that imprisoned you is about to be left behind. That side of you, that trauma from your childhood that then followed you and steered you into other disappointing and damaging relationships, is being released and healed. Your heart has been broken so that it can be made new again, bigger and stronger and brighter and so much more capable of giving and accepting (untainted and unconditional) love. Your time will come. It will. And until then, think of yourself as the little tiger being held and watched over in a constant and silent vigil.

Sunday Scripture: to help you to future-proof your week.

This is your reading for the week beginning August 10th, 2020 – but as with all readings, if you have been guided towards this page at another time then trust that it is meant to be and applicable to your life now.

As we move into the second week of August, the focus is about standing up for what you believe in, picking a side and fighting for what you know to be right. This might mean loss and sacrifice – because, really, all change causes what is old and no longer serving us to fall away. But have faith, because what is being birthed in you and what is coming is worth the risk and sacrifice.

This week’s reading comes from the Radiant Rider-Waite Tarot deck, published by U.S. Games Systems, INC., with artwork based on drawings by Pamela Coleman Smith. Check out their website if you like what you see and see or go to Amazon to get your own deck.

The cards drawn are:

  • The Page of Swords
  • The Eight of Cups
  • Strength

Watch the video below to get the full reading, then send me a message and share what it awoke or sparked in you.

Our first card is the Page of Swords – new ideas, research, exploration and mental adventure. The beginning of the week – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – is all about the generation and formation of new paths and projects and the padding out and exploring of current beliefs. Who am I? What do I believe in? Which direction do I want to be moving in? The Page symbolises new things waking up and coming into balance inside and our desire to stand up and take action to move towards them. Acknowledge, though, that because you are moving in a new direction, there is a need for mentorship and advice. You likely do not have all of the information you need for this journey to hand and perhaps you lack experience and insight. Find leaders who have been there before, who understand how it is done and know what to do, and ask them to if they will lead, guide and help you. Perhaps take an online course and join a support circle? Maybe dive deep into a transformational book and start binge watching someone’s podcast or YouTube channel? It doesn’t need to cost the earth or involve an actual person sitting with you 1-2-1. That would be nice, but do what your circumstances and budget allow and let your intuition guide you. This card could also mean that something unwelcome is coming into your life which is going to need you to find inner reserves of strength. Maybe someone close to you needs you to use your voice to defend their cause? Or else you are going to have to stand up and fight to protect their life? See how the beginning of the week pans out, and then adjust your reading of the next two cards to suit.

The Eight of Cups – disappointment, sacrifice, loss, abandonment and turning away. The middle of the week looks trickier than the beginning and Thursday and Friday are likely to be a challenging time. The Eight of Cups depicts a man turning away from everything he once held dear in order to embrace a different way of life. Perhaps what you do at the beginning of the week means alliances shift and friendships are challenged? Maybe an intimate relationship or your job is put to the test or even lost? These are polarising times and any time a person makes a change and tries to shift focus or direction their circle invariably alters. Even something as simple as turning vegan or giving up alcohol can alienate you from your group. People prefer it when we stay who we are so that they can know us more simply and also so they don’t have to look too closely at themselves if they are happy with how things are. Be brave, be strong, and stay true to your heart. The way of the heart, although painful, is the way that ultimately serves us best. If this eight proves painful for you, know that this is part of your hero’s journey and that this too will pass. No matter how high the cost of this card and this week, there will be transformation and healing and better times. Sometimes losing everything is a kind of freedom, releasing us so that we can get back on our rightful path.

Strength – inner power, strong emotions, resilience, the divine feminine awakening. Saturday and Sunday deliver you connection to a strength you didn’t know you had (and perhaps didn’t want to know you would ever need) and from this a bond with triad of the inner feminine. Your soft, squishy inner child is melding with your fiercely protective inner mother and stoic, wise grandmother and as they meld, you connect too to your original animal power, the first seed of your nature. Let this occur. From it a Phoenix will rise. You are stronger than you think you are. You are capable of surviving anything, and that includes everything that is happening to you right now and that which has come before. Welcome this magical bonding of archetypes and watch as miracles occur. If this was a difficult week, things are shifting one way or another now. Hang on in there, try not to lash out or be too harsh, either on yourself or others. It’s been quite a ride and may continue to be so for a while.

Let’s talk anxiety… 🧸

I want to talk to you about mental health because it’s such a hot topic. More individuals than ever are experiencing elevated and charged emotions, depression and suicide are on the rise, people are dealing with isolation, fear, grief, helplessness, abandonment, rejection, condemnation, prejudice, confusion, overwhelm, panic and anxiety… and yet there’s very little yet in the way of support. Which makes it a serious point and something we need to be aware of and receptive to given the current world climate.

So if it’s not you; if you are ok, be open to the feelings and experiences of those around you and try to be there to hold space for them. This matters and could be the thing that stops them from going over the edge. Simply sitting and allowing that person to freely express how they are feeling in all of its rawness, without feeling the need to step in and shut it down, can be transformative and incredibly healing. And as an act of service, it’s the highest and the simplest kind.

And if it is you; if you are the one who is struggling, who feels like they are drowning: try to find someone who can be gentle and patient to hold space for you. And also try – if you can, and I know it’s difficult – to be there for yourself in that way as scary as that might seem and as challenging as it might be. With practice, it’s gets easier and more enjoyable and impactful. Perhaps start with yoga nidra or restorative yoga, following an audio or a video – because that creates and provides a beautiful space and is a powerful form of anchoring, grounding, soothing, calming and healing.

The video below takes a deep dive into all things emotional and offers up some insight and advice on how to help both those around you and yourself. Plus there’s a mini oracle reading.

Catch your breath – stop, find a place to shelter and settle, accept that now is more like autumn, a place of pause and slowing down and turning inward after a period of high power, energy and pace. Try to locate your roots in nature, somewhere where you can sit and be still. Find your version of a tree to hold and meditate under. If you can’t go outside or don’t want to, then a chair or a bed leg even. Or good for me are a pillow or a balance ball. Bring that energy back into your body. Find something to hold space for you. Then think about the acorns in your life, the things of value that help you to feel nurtured. Maybe that’s a green juice, exercise, a hot essential oil and Epsom salt-filled bath, your cat or dog, orange oil in a diffuser. Find what works for you, then trust what you are experiencing will fall away and everything will be ok: seasons change. Acknowledge what you have access to. Build gratitude for that. Create a treasure chest of these things in your mind that you can easily dip into so that next time you are in need of a pick me up, you know what to do.

Potential Gateway – this time can be a tunnel into another brighter and better way of being, a passageway towards a new you and a new version of your life and way of living and acting. It can be beautiful too, if you can trust in it and hold its image in your heart and mind’s eye. You can timeline it even by creating a mood board. What is your version of peace and paradise and serenity? Create an image of that and use it as a focus point to walk to. This is the gift, the silver lining that is your reward. This card promises that you will get there, that there is a there, that it is worth carrying and holding on and putting the effort into. Things feel difficult right now, they feel challenging and painful and exhausting, but they won’t be this way always, that is the point of this card, the future it sees for you.

Sunday Scripture: to help you to future-proof your week.

This week’s reading comes from the Radiant Rider-Waite Tarot deck, published by U.S. Games Systems, INC., with artwork based on drawings by Pamela Coleman Smith and the Ask and It Is Given cards by Esther and Jerry Hicks, published by Hay House Publishing. Check out their individual websites to find out more if you like what you hear, and see or go to Amazon to get your own deck.

As we move into August, the focus is about celebrating what you have achieved thus far and channeling that energy in order to create and plan for more of it, along with looking out for energetic vampires in your life and thinking before you speak.

The cards drawn are:

  • The Nine of Cups
  • The Seven of Swords
  • The Knight of Swords

Watch the video below to find out what it’s message is. Then send me a message and share what it awoke or sparked in you.

The Nine of Cups is our card for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. It reminds us that we have accomplished many things over the course of this year, both big and small, all valid and worthy. And it bids us sit back and give thanks and appreciation for this. Perhaps you took up yoga, learnt meditation, started a daily self-love practice, turned vegan, gave up processed foods, started juicing, built muscle, lost fat, got rid of chemical products, began researching or studying a new subject, stood up for something you believed in, formed a support group, held a friend through a crisis, shifted focus in your career, etc. Whatever it is and how many there are, take time to pat yourself on the back. Note how you followed your intuition, acted from your heart and lived by your truth, all the while remaining humble and grounded. This is how we create a display cabinet full of many cups, and a life full of merit.

The Seven of Swords is our card for Thursday and Friday and it shows a man stealing from another’s camp. It warns us that either someone else is going to come into our home and try to take something from us – maybe only connecting in order to ask a favour or get some advice – or we are going to be tempted or called upon to do that to someone else. Be on the look-out for energy vampires both big and small and maybe lean into a bit of energy vampire scaldaggery yourself in order to get your needs met.

The Knight of Swords is our card for the weekend and it shows us a knight charging into battle. He is moving fast and travelling through inclement weather, hell-bent on his holy grail. Perhaps you are going to feel compelled to stand up for something you believe in that might not go down so well with everyone in your life? Or maybe someone is going to come at you with their own specific truth? Either way, what is being communicated might not be palatable for everyone. If it’s you doing the preaching, make sure you are truly aligned with what you are communicating and prepared for what might come back. And if it is something that is coming at you, just be mindful that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and you don’t have to take it personally. One person’s truth could be another person’s lie. Stay grounded and centred and don’t rush in. What we say in haste we often regret.

When life hands you Lemons. 🍋

Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, it can feel like life is out to get us or at least like she isn’t currently on our side. And we can wonder too at what’s up with our guardian angels, because it feels like they also have deserted us.

When life turns against you; when she hands you lemons: what do you do and how do you find the strength to keep going until you reach the other side? When the milk in the pitcher is always sour no matter how many times you return to milk the cow: how do you cut the chords that have become emmeshed so that you can go out and find a different animal?

A lot of it can come down to self-belief. If you don’t love yourself enough, if you don’t believe that you are worthy: you aren’t going to take the risk; you may even lack the confidence to trust in the potential of your own power. And if birds keep defecating on us each time we pluck up the courage to get dressed and venture outside… pretty soon we’re going to stop putting in the effort, perhaps even concluding right now isn’t the right time. It can be hard to trust in the Universe and in the Bigger Narrative when all of our small attempts to change the scenery are met with resistance and failure. Eventually… we start to doubt the Powers That Be.

After all…why do our efforts to change and improve the situations that have become toxically binding amount to nothing each time we muster up the courage to try? Why does our time, energy, hope and faith turn to dust in our palms?

In order to understand this ‘why’, we need to first understand the ‘why’ behind the lemons we are dealt and the box of them that we have managed to accumulate. And really, when we break it all apart, it comes down to this:

  • what have you done that causes you to believe you deserve this – these bad things – in your life?
  • when did you learn that you weren’t loveable and worthy?
  • who told you you didn’t deserve to be happy, healthy and have all of your needs met?
  • where did you pick up that you had to put others first always, no matter what?
  • who told you it was selfish to have rules of engagement and to ask for them to be met?
  • who told you you were a bad person, unworthy, not good enough, clever enough, strong enough, capable enough, etc?
  • what is it about you that makes you believe other people are more worthy of love, happiness, family, community, friendship, fulfilment, stability, security, health, harmony and peace, etc?

Somewhere inside – like deep, deep down – we all have limiting beliefs, and it is these beliefs that shape and guide us and that is why life hands us lemons, not because it doesn’t love us or want us to be happy but because we don’t believe we warrant more. In order to receive we first have to accept that we are worthy, and then comes the journey of allowing things in with open arms.

So in the interim of therapy – which we can all agree would be super nurturing, expansive, helpful and nice – what can we do to hold space for ourselves and how can we move into a place of surrender, faith and healing?

Let’s ask the cards…

The Owl bids us to listen to the messages of the angels and to the knowledge we have inside, for just as they are here for us as teachers, we are here as teachers for those in our own tribe. Use your wisdom responsibly and always blend it with love, because it carries both energy and weight. With words, a mother can either wound or heal, cause a child to grow or shrink. As a soul parent to the people around you, how does your family look? This is not to say that you should accept drama, theatrics and game playing from anyone. Never is this ok. Simply an encouragement that you acknowledge the wider ripples of how you interact and respond. The more distance you can put between yourself and a heated situation – i.e. rise up above it all like a bird, surveying the scene from a more objective less emotionally involved vantage point – the more chance you have of piloting through.

The Bear furthers this message, advising us to use power – our power, the power of our energy and truth, the power located in our solar plexus – with wisdom. In applying the insight of the Owl – that to look and listen and to rise above, that to free ourselves from unhealthy entanglements – the Bear shows us how important it is to be grounded, because being connected to the Earth enables us to come from a place of centredness and stability. Practice yoga for an amount of time and you will come to sense this. When we adopt the Mountain Pose, for instance, we can be poked or pushed and still remain standing. We are stronger when we fully inhabit our bones rather than when we collapse upon them. The Bear reveals the strength within each and every one of us, but also reminds us of the need to hibernate. If the world is a little scary right now, if your personal or work environment is challenging, if the walls are crumbling and your home-sweet-home is stubbornly falling down: retreat, go onwards, take care. You may need to walk alone for a little while while you figure out who you really are. And that’s ok; you are the one who sets the deadline on your destination.

The Lilac Fire dragon completes this journey, showing us how to transmute any lower energies that are in our lives. This, in turn, frees us up to attract more higher energies, which are the ones we want. On the path of lemons, this means there will be less and less, because lemons are all about lower energies and entities: the things that come to steal our light. The Lilac Fire dragons, like all of the dragons in this deck, are fifth dimensional creatures but unlike the others they have access to the ninth dimension too where there is a new energy being gifted. This energy, that of the Lilac Fire of Source, carries transcendent love and enlightenment. Call in this dragon and ask her to help you to let go of the old so that you are able to embrace the new. Imagine the chords that are wrapped around you. See how tight and tangled they have become. Follow them outwards to see where they go. Who are the people? What are the places or situations? Take note of this, then ask the Lilac Fire Dragon to help you perform a chord-cutting ceremony. Spend time on this in meditation and afterwards cleanse the room with sage, palo santo, or a room cleansing spray made up of water, alcohol and essential oils. Great ones would be sage, palo santo and lavender. Why not mix them all together in a bottle and use them regularly to clear the energies in your room, and also diffuse them if and when someone has come in and disturbed the energy. If you only have lavender, this is ok too. You can always blend it with other oils you might have. Ones that will also work are lemon, orange, rosemary, oregano, peppermint, frankincense, clove, cinnamon, pine, cedar and spruce. I always find its best to go by intuition, so smell a few and see what speaks to you. It will change from day to day or week to week, so be open to this too. Trust your senses.
