Dark Days.

There are many who are confused right now, not sure what to think or feel. There are others who are living in fear of everything that is pumped out. And more, still, who were living in hope, who were waking and rising and ascending, who have recently suffered a set back and are now experiencing a dark night of sorts. These people have touched me in multiple ways and changed the course of my journey: for as we all know, our threads are connected; what one of us does, thinks, hears, feels, applies to us all.

This message is for you, as well as for those who are already fully comfortable, confident and actualised. It’s been an intense 14 months and already a crazy year.

So my question today is: What lies ahead?… because I feel that is what we most would like to know.

We have all lost the rug that was situated beneath us (whether that be 5, 10, 20, 50… years ago, or several months, weeks or days…) and discovered that what we thought we knew, what we learned and what we were told and taught, is simply part of a narrative. The truth, if we seek to find it, if we can stomach such a rude awakening in our bodies and in our lives, is far more complex and nefarious. For those of you who know: you know. And for those who don’t: perhaps that’s just fine; perhaps it’s where you should be right now and even for the rest of your journey. Opening the lid on Pandora’s box is not a thing to do lightly, nor a thing that work or serves for all.

Deck used is Dark Days tarot written by Emily Mundy and illustrated and designed by Wren McMurdo. It felt like an apt deck.

The Page of Swords

In the centre of this black card there is a white rose with four leaves that curve and sweep outwards to wrap themselves over and around the two circles of delicate outlined flowers that are crowding its girth. This is as a garden beginning to grow, a gathering around a leader, those who are new and freshly arisen, who have only just broken through the earth’s crusted surface reaching up towards the light and in towards that which appears strongest and most confident. They seek a parent, perhaps, or else a leader, and this large white rose is the first thing they see. Like a child, they imprint upon it and then wait to see what they are shown, taught and told. Is this the Christed Light? Or a being from the future? Or else an Angel come to earth to save them or some other high vibrational being? Or is it simply the largest, strongest flower, that will in time rise and swell to overshadow them and block the light? You decide.

Around this circle there is an outer circle of heads, each resembling a phase of the moon, therefore representing the lunar cycle. Their heads are bare. Their eyes are closed. They are entranced. Only their tongues are active and they are barbed. They whisper lies to each other and also everyone else who can hear, and the poor newbie flowers, because they are contained within this greater circumference, are subject to it all. Day after day. Hour after hour…. Birds hover and fly all around, stirring up trouble, but also issuing a warning. And at the bottom, hidden within the name, there is an envelope with a dagger crossing it. Guard your truth? Be careful of what you say? Be awake, for words can harm you? Or else dip into and protect their power?

What’s you choose to read here is what is meant for you. I am guided to leave it there. To attempt to elaborate would be to meddle in your life and to endeavor to force a narrative upon your future.

Keywords from accompanying booklet: vigilance in minding what you say.






The Chariot

The woman in this card is alone. She is riding a bike. Her bike contains many tiny slices of new moon, or perhaps the moon waxing and waning? She has several tattoos – a bicycle, birds and three moons; take charge of your own destiny, trust your own navigation, look to the skies. These are dark, the opposite of those on the tyres, suggesting they are super important messages. Her feet are bare (freedom, authenticity) and she is wearing only a flimsy dress (self expression, choice). Also, is it spring or summer? Behind her there are many birds, and also several slices of moon and fluffy clouds. Noise!! Chatter!!! The sun, or moon, to her left is part covered in dark, menacing clouds. Are they trying to cover its beauty, conceal its power, obliterate its message. She is either travelling through something or fleeing something and yet there is no fear, only focus and determination.

The Chariot represents the need for choice, presenting the options to us. Traditionally, there are two sphinxes – one white, one black – and I usually read it as: time to pick a side. Yet here it feels like the side is already picked and the action is already taken, so it’s simply a matter of holding your ground, staying balanced and in your centre and continuing to move forwards.

Keywords from accompanying booklet: proper use of control; willpower; momentum.



Time to rise. 🤺

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.
