Oracle card reading 29th Nov – 5th Dec ’21

cards pulled for the weekly reading 29th November to 5th December 2021
 
a heads-up that some of this may read a bit blunter than usual. Go with it if you can and take what resonates. My team are a bit spicy today ……
 
.
.

Mon 29th – Tue 30th Nov : Orca magic

 
Now this is an interesting card as I popped it back into the deck and it popped right back out again.
 
The secondary meaning on the cards refers to the Akashic libraries – if this is work you do or familiar with I’ll leave that with you. I’m not going to go into this one as not my area of expertise 🙂
 
The reference to the orcas is a link to the earth, her work and day to day running. Take some time to acknowledge the planet you live on as without her you wouldn’t be here.
 
But also remember she knows EXACTLY what she’s doing and has been around far longer than us. And will outlive us. So while it can be tempting to panic and say she’s in decline, or at risk etc ask yourself this.

 

Is she?
Or is she sorting things out at a level we can’t quite comprehend and we’ve forgotten who runs the show?
 
That’s one to sit with folks and mull over. See what my words bring up for you and if triggered by them ask yourself why.
 
It may not be for the reasons you first think. Always look beneath the surface of things. And for reference as not many here are aware of this I have an Environmental Sciences back ground so I do very much care.
 
The other thing coming through is for you – despite the weather – to get outside and connect. Sitting on your backside with technology in your home is one thing. Getting outside breathing the air and SEEING nature is another. And it is a great leveller.
 
Be near water if you can for this as it’s a great cleanser. Salt water even more so with the link to the orcas in the card. Get out and smell the seaweed! Be reminded of the power of the planet.
 
For some others this may be a nudge towards galactic energies and directions. Again will leave you with this.
 
.
.

Wed 1st – Tue 2nd : Set your course

 
Or as I’m seeing this card – set your intentions.
 
This card pops up for the two days preceding new moon and the total lunar eclipse on the 4th. It’s the perfect energy and moment to look at where you are going, what you want in your life and letting go of what serves no purpose.
 
If journalling or story boarding is something that resonates what is the trend or theme that keeps coming up for you? Have you looked at it? Is it something you can tackle head on? Is it something that you would prefer did not follow you into 2022?
 
Like I said perfect window of time to sort through all of this and more. Have a clear path in your minds eye and follow it. Especially as we head towards Winter/Summer solstice.
 
Setting intentions is a good practice to have. But a word of advice. Keep them simple and straight to the point. The more direct they are the less likely they can be misunderstood.
 
To those who are shouting that they have no idea what they are here to do or which direction to go you are far from alone. As I said recently focus in a different way. Look at what you DON’T want to do , follow or head towards. The more you strip out the distractions and diversions the more opportunity there is for the clarity to come forwards.
 
And failing that you can always change your mind if what you started isn’t going quite where you had hoped or anticipated.
 
Or you can light a candle or two and ask for the right help and right guidance to come forwards in a from you can recognise. Take action and claim responsibility for yourself.
.
.
 

Fri 3rd – Sun 5th : Be light of heart

 
Or as my team shouted “lighten up!”.
 
This is about maintaining a sense of humour, a lightness of being and not taking yourself overly seriously.
 
A lot of people right now are very unhappy, under immense strain and finding it hard to find any light around situations. Embrace the inner Brit and find a sense of the ridiculous – twisted or otherwise to keep you sane.
 
The ability to laugh at yourself, the situations and more takes a lot of the sting and power out of things.
 
And I don’t mean mocking others – thats a path you don’t wan’t to be going down right now. As it’ll rebound on you with some force later. You have been warned.
 
I mean the ability to take the pi$$ out of yourself, to help others find their laughter and smile again. Even when things feel a bit hopeless or overwhelming.
 
This is a card about optimism and helping others see it in you first and then in themselves. That twinkle in your eye can be healing to those who have forgotten how to laugh.
 
Share the things you find funny – not mean or hurtful . Simply funny. Lighten your load and theirs by giving them something else to see, feel or hear.
 
If it feels right watch a film or series that always made you howl with laughter and simply enjoy it. For me it’s Fawlty Towers, Monty Python and Dead Pool.
 
This new moon/lunar eclipse combo on the 4th will be heavy for some and easy for others. So go with the flow. Cut yourself some slack and find what makes you laugh.
.

extra card for the week

Extra for the week : Shifting

 
A good reminder for the week that the energies are constantly shifting. As are ours. So what may feel right one day may feel odd the next.
 
Flow with it where you can.
 
Be aware that those around you are going through the same process and to be kind where you can.
 
Everything is a moving target and shifting goal posts this week. Observe if possible before acting.
 
Be open to new possibilities, flexible and willing to effect change where it is needed. Being stuck or inflexible may cause you to break in some way.
 
If shifting doesn’t resonate use the word “flow” for the week and it may make more sense.

Solstice special offer running 1st to 4th December 2021

Solstice special offer!

Now all the sale weekend craziness is dying down I can mention a special I’m running 1st – 4th Dec.
 
For those days only anyone asking to join the Arse Kicked By Dragons membership will be able to take advantage of a Solstice Special. As December is Solstice month.
 
Rather than the full price of £25/month it will fall to £19/month for the duration of your membership.
 
After the 4th it reverts back to £25/month.
 

What do you get for this?

 
Well in all honesty a kick in the rear.
 
This is an accountability process where you decide to show up and do the work that my team suggest each month. Or you don’t.
I’ll treat you like an adult and won’t spoon feed you. You have free will and I encourage you to exercise it.
 
If you’ve been feeling a bit meh, a bit fed up, or a bit let down by your spiritual practice it may be time to look at things from a different angle. And that’s what the team and I bring in.
 
At the beginning of the month (usually around the 4th) my team and I set a challenge, or a place to bring your attention. You then have till the end of the month to work through what comes up for you. At that point there’s a live Zoom Q&A call to discuss anything that’s come up, that you’d like to share or soundboard.
In some cases I may offer some 1-2-1 time to go a bit deeper into things with you. Which is included in your membership.

Access to earlier work

 
All the previous challenges and Q&A sessions we’ve had since this all started way back in July are fully accessible in a dedicated Facebook group that you will have access to for the duration of your membership. Be it a month or longer. everyone is different.
 
We have found that very rarely do two people end up doing the same work. We all go in different directions from each other. And that’s the point. It’s what comes up for YOU that you look at.
 
So if this sounds like your kind of thing feel free to email me to secure a slot for the December intake at the Solstice Special price.

Oracle card reading 22nd – 28th Nov 2021

cards drawn for the oracle reading 22nd to 28th November 2021
 

Mon 22nd – Tue 23rd

 
As always pay attention when dragon energy shows up randomly in a deck you weren’t anticipating it. Particularly when the colour on the card is the colour that energy shows to you on a daily basis. It’s quite a marker and this is a repeating pattern through the year, and particularly till Solstice.
 
If someone or something is attempting to tell you how to be, how to live your life, or what to think/feel/believe you HAVE to question it. Whether it’s coming from a good place or not.
 
Only YOU can decide what you think/feel /believe and the decisions you make around how you live your life.
 
So get in touch with your truth and live it.
Understand your voice and use it.
 
Anyone/thing (and as always I include myself in that list) attempting to tell you that you are “wrong” or that their way is the “right” one needs to be looked at under a microscope. Why are they so interested or invested in your choices and decisions?
 
These voices may not be quite what they appear and it’s worth doing your due diligence as to whether you pay it attention or tell it to sling it’s hook.
 
Discernment is and remains key.
 
When in doubt ask yourself what YOU think or feel about a certain situation/challenge first. And go with your gut instinct. It won’t steer you wrong – the other influences well, they just might.
 
If needed you can use a bit of dragon fire at your back to get the point across if required to get rid of something along the way.
 
When you come from your truth, your heart you cannot be lead astray.
.
 
And conversely if you are the one telling someone how to be or act you will be given the opportunity to see what you are doing and to cease.
.
.
 

Wed 24th – Thur 25th : Work

 
Now at first glance you may think this refers the work you do to pay your bills. Nope. We are talking about the work you are here to do – your reason for incarnating this time round.
 
Now it’s a difficult question and can drive us round the bend. Looking for clarity round this can take years.
 
Instead ask what are you drawn to doing . What keeps catching your attention? It can come as a flash of inspiration, an “I’ve had enough!” moment or something a little less obvious.
 
It will start to flow if you step back a little and trust that it will make itself known when its time. Do your self work, wade through the shadow as it comes up and the way will become clearer with the other distractions being cleared out.
 
I have an idea what my role is BUT it’s ever evolving as I shift and change. Be prepared for it to flex and flow as you grow and remember. It’s not a fixed target – it’s a far bigger picture.
 
Focus within and the answer may reveal itself there.
.
.
 
 

Fri 26th – Sun 28th : Renewal

 
Oddly this card jumped out the deck earlier on but it made it’s way to the end of the week instead.
 
The spiral is the important focus of the card. And for now this is about healing, resting and recuperation.
 
It’s a heavy week off the back of the eclipse building to the next one on the 4th Dec and some of us need a bit of down time to integrate. Especially if you found the full moon/lunar eclipse combo a bit too much (raises hand!).
 
If you need to slow down and rest then do that. If you see others racing ahead let them be. We are all on different parts of our energy spiral. When we have energy we can use it, when we don’t we can take time to re-charge first or face burn out.
 
Find gratitude where you can for what you have around you, the people, the energies. All of it. This is the space I went into during the eclipse and it kept me sane. And it’s what I can focus on till Solstice.
 
When you are in that space you can see situations and more in a different light. And can go some way to either laying them to rest or starting to heal.
 
If you have had to make your voice heard and your line in the sand marked then a bit of R&R may be useful.
 
For some others you are on the way out of this and getting going again – embrace the energy and work with it while it is available to you.
.

extra card drawn for the week

Extra card for the week – Change of Mind

 
A powerful card and reminder. You can change your mind about anything as and when it is needed.
 
As can everyone.
 
It may be you who are changing direction, a belief or a thought . Or it could be someone around you having a moment of realisation.
 
Whichever it is cut yourself or them some slack. Changes such as these can be sudden, out of the blue and difficult to navigate. They take time, energy and effort.
 
But it is the path to self empowerment and autonomy when you understand yourself that more deeply. When you can take responsibility for what is yours rather than pointing a finger of blame outwards. Thats where the change can come in.
 
I look back to who I used to be versus who I am now and no longer recognise the “old me”. And nor should I. Change is the only constant in life and working with it rather than against it can open up so many more doors than you might realise.
 
See the image on the card as a butterfly opening it’s wings and starting to fly. Allow yourself the space to do so . Or if it’s someone else step out of the way so you don’t block their flight path.

*a disclaimer – as with anything I write take what resonates and bin the rest as it may feel a little , well blunt. If you get other information direct from the cards go with that*
.

Mon 15th – Tue 16th : Nothing is Impossible

 
Now I am seeing a small pattern of cards being repeated over the last month or so. And this is one of them. Why? We are begin given multiple opportunities to re-visit certain energies, situations etc. To move on, to resolve, to dissolve and more.
 
We have repeating energy cycles from now to the end of the year – it’s how you deal with them that is key.
 
For the beginning of the week it’s time to assess who you listen to, or who’s voice you allow in your conscious and subconscious.
 
Are you being told by those around you that what you think, what you feel or what you are building is “impossible”, a “pipe dream”, or even “never going to happen”.
 
Can I ask why you are listening to this?
No, really.
 
Is it out of a form of respect or deference to that person. Do you see them as having a form of authority over you? Or is it something else?
 
While yes it is good to understand that we all have differing experiences, view points and beliefs – being talked down to, silenced, ignored or talked into a path that isn’t yours is not.
 
And it goes both ways. If you are shutting someone down or taking them down YOUR path this is for you as well.

.

 
If you can see a situation where the person speaking to you (or at you) does not have your best interests at heart it may be time to question. To ask yourself what does this serve.
 
We have to do what resonates, what feels right and what we know is best for us at any given time. We can change our minds and direction down the road.
 
But, ask yourself are you beginning to feel a little frustrated, or even fed up hearing their voice? Firstly try not to – understand they are coming from their perspective and having compassion for this is a place to start.
 
For many it’s time to sense check where you are. Where your moral compass is sitting and guiding and then walk your talk.
 
Dig deep and realise nothing is impossible. The only limit we have is our imagination. Think outside of the box others would have you stuffed into.
 
Investigate, question and delve beneath the surface of what is being presented. Do what is right for you. It will never be right for everyone, nothing is.
 
Discernment is very much key and will be till the end of the year.
.
.
 

Wed 17th – Thur 18th : Destiny

 
Interesting card as it falls either just on or just before this months full moon and lunar eclipse depending where in the world you are. There is a LOT going on “up there” and as I said earlier it’s set to repeat multiple times till the end of the year.
 
It will be harder on some than it is on others. But again see it as an opportunity to sense check, assess and adjust where needed.
 
If you follow or work with astrology look a bit deeper into the older myths and stories to find your truth of what it all means. Rather than what has been adopted over the years as the original thread can get lost or muddled along the way.
 
Or find someone you resonate with who does this type of work (no need to reinvent the wheel if you don’t have to) and see what they mention for this time.
 
And while destiny can feel like it’s written in stone remember you still have free will. You don’t HAVE to take something on simply as it is expected. You can say “no” or even “hell no!” or possibly if need “F**k right off.”
 
Take responsibility for yourself, your actions, reactions and more. Self empowerment is a powerful path.
 
Have a bit of compassion for those around you if they are the ones being hit hard by these energies if you’re sailing through. The shoe will be on the other foot soon enough.
.
.
 

Fri 19th – Sun 21st : Mermaid in a Koi pond

 
Again this may fall just on or just after the eclipse. The two cards can be seen as interchangeable.
 
This is very much about growing into who you are, rather than who you were. Of realising that things have changed, you have shifted and that you can be yourself.
 
This is about shedding what you have taken on from others, been conditioned to feel, think or see. Of letting go of beliefs you carry that either aren’t yours of simply do not resonate with where you are right now.
 
Seeing the thread running through all the cards this week?
Discernment, self knowledge and self understanding.
 
Extend that compassion to yourself as you integrate and then extend it outwards where and when you can – IF you have the energy to do so. If not it will flow later.
 
Ultimately this is a week to find where the stuck feeling is sitting and starting to do something about it to move it on and let you move forwards again.
.
.
 

Overview for the week : Commitment

extra card for 15th to 21st Nov '21

 
Now this is an interesting card as I can see quite a few ways it can be translated. If my words don’t resonate go with what it means to you first.
 
My take on this alongside the other cards is about looking where you have committed your time, energy, resources and focus. And assessing if this is still the best fit for you.
 
In particular have you perhaps over committed to something and it’s now draining one or more of the above?
 
Take time to observe where it all sits right now .
You don’t HAVE to anything about it.
 
Steps can be taken to streamline or consolidate when it’s right for you. Circumstances can change and what felt ok when you said yes can feel uncomfortable or a burden now.
 
Assess, plan and take action when/where needed.
 
If you have committed to something for yourself are you honouring it? Or does it need a little tweak to get it moving again?
 
Simply awareness may go a long way this week. .

Oracle card reading 8th – 14th Nov

 
I’ve gone a bit old school and have decided to use one deck for the full week (well apart from the overview). You can also see what you pick up from the cards direct as this deck gives the card energy.
photo of cards drawn for 8th to 14th November 2021

Mon 8th – Tue 9th : Assistance

 
Great card and one that popped up not too long ago.
 
Lots of bright blue, yellow and green for those who work with colour.
 
This card for me is about knowing when to ask for help. Of understanding your limits and reaching out when you’re about to go too far. Or even stopping yourself before you hit the wall.
 
The help is there – you just have to remember to ask. Free will and all that. If you don’t say you are struggling people may not realise it.
 
And those who have been asking it is on it’s way. It may not, however, be in the form you were hoping or expecting. So pay attention.
 
There could be a sudden out of the blue shift in a situation that resolves what the issue was. You could find the communication glitches have cleared up and all sides now understand each other fully.
 
There could be all sorts of movements in the background that are clicking into place that you can’t quite see yet.
 
Help can also hide in plain sight.
 
Observe if you can and you may start to see what is playing out in your favour.
 
But, and it’s a big one, if offered help you have been asking for try not to say “no thanks” as it defeats the purpose of asking in the first instance. And you may not get a second opportunity.
.
.
For some others you may find yourself being the source of help to someone/thing else. If you are in a position to do so without draining your resources or energy then carry on if it feels the right thing to do.
.
.
 

Wed 10th – Thur 11th : Voice

 
Ok. A powerful wee card this though on the surface it may not look it. And oddly enough sitting typing this as I can feel a tickle at the back of my own throat right now. *note to self*
 
To me the image on the card is the voice box – the chords that allow us to produce sound and communicate with those around us. And when you look more closely you can see patterns, swirls and forms appear in the green and purple stripes.
 
This to me is hidden depth and power of your own truth when it is spoken aloud (or written). To have the trust and confidence to own your voice and your truth. To give it space to be heard and seen. Even if it wobbles a little bit first. It gets easier over time.
 
Not to the point of shouting to drown others out.
 
If you hit that point you might want to pull it back. Work out if you are projecting and stomping over peoples boundaries in your (over) eagerness to get the point across. And then do the needful to come back into alignment.
 
No judgement from me as it’s a fine line between being passionate about something and becoming militant – and I’ve been there myself on more than one occasion.
 
We all have a voice that deserves to be heard – even if others don’t agree with what you/they have to say. Be in a place where you can accept others differences to yourself and be open to listening to other perspectives. This is where growth can happen.
.
.
For some you may be drawn to help those who are being silenced in some way. And for that I applaud you. Sometimes being drowned out or silenced is so overwhelming people can shut down.
 
If all you are doing is offering an ear for them to let it all out then do it – they will feel heard, valued and included.
.
.
 

Fri 12th – Sun 14th : Knowledge

 
Knowledge. It means different things to different people.
 
This to me is about personal knowledge and experience. Being able to take the lessons, understandings etc and share them in a way that is helpful for others.
 
Of being brave to share in the first instance. As lets face it sticking your head above the parapet is scary stuff. We get imposter syndrome and question who we think we are to share things in the first place. There are others who are more eloquent, informed, knowledgeable etc.
 
Trust me I understand this one. You will get to a point where that starts to fall away for the distraction that it is. Speak from your heart, your truth and it will be felt by those who stumble across it.
 
Knowledge doesn’t necessarily come from a particular modality, set of teachings, or a teacher – it comes from the soul. It comes to you direct from Source.
 
Listen.
And listen deeply to advice you give to others, the realisations you have and more. That is where the gems can be found.
.
.
 

Extra for the full week : Patience

extra card for the week

 
Oooh now this is a touchy one for me as patience isn’t so high on my list of personal qualities at the moment.
 
But it is a reminder not to push, to let things flow as they will. At their pace not yours.
 
Rushing can force you to deal with things you aren’t quite prepared to deal with. Or integrations that have been skipped. Possibly even an overloading on your system as everything hits at once.
 
So take a breath, relax those shoulders and go for a walk. Connect with nature, feel the wind on your face, the sun at your back. Listen to the leaves, the birds and more.
 
Do they rush the seasons and cycles?
Why should you?

Mon 1st – Tue 2nd : Immunity

 
This is a card that has popped up a time or two and I know currently it may be challenging or triggering for some. Go beyond that and allow what comes up for you to do just that.
 
For me this is a card about becoming immune to, or building up a working experience of, seeing through others projections, expectations, bs and more. Of being able to let things bounce off you that before would have kept you up at night reliving it all in minute detail.
 
It’s about learned responses and how to adjust or change them. You may be presented with opportunities this week to re-visit a situation and have a completely new response/feeling towards it all. This is simply showing you the growth you have made.
 
Allow your own discernment, inner knowing and innate knowledge to guide you.
 
We have some potentially very heavy energies around this week which also gift us the chance to go inward a bit more deeply to understand how we tick.
 
Not how others tell or dictate we tick. But to discover that for ourselves – after all you are the one living your life and having your exNot how others tell or dictate we tick. But to discover that for ourselves – after all you are the one living your life and having your experiences.
 
This is a card about self empowerment. Of starting to understand what is yours, what is not yours and what is completely out of your hands.
 
Focus on your work this week as you may find glimpses of gems hidden away coming to light.
 
If you have had enough of others “stuff” chipping away at you it may be time to relook at your boundaries. Are they robust, has something breached them, do you honour them? Perhaps it’s time to re-assess and create a new set, or tweak what is there.
 
And on the reverse side are you projecting your “stuff” onto others? Do you trample over others boundaries – again time to look at ourselves first before pointing a finger outwards.
 
.
.
 

Wed 3rd – Thur 4th : Consciousness

 
A really interesting card to fall on these dates as we have some interesting energies at play. We have an occultation of Mercury with the moon on the 3rd, and New Moon in Scorpio on the 4th.
 
A lot going on and huge potential to shift, to delve deep, to gain clarity and movement.
 
This card is all about healing of your energy. Letting go or changing thought patterns, beliefs and energies. Which is the EXACT work I do at New Moon (rather than full moon – it’s all down to the person 🙂 ) . To realise the work you do can shift you forwards in ways unexpected when you started.
 
To become aware more and more of your energetic or conscious self. As with the start of the week the route to self empowerment starts with taking responsibility for what is yours, what you can change. And knowing what is outside of your control at this time.
 
Again allow what needs to come up space to do so. If it’s too much for you right now then acknowledge it. Observe it. And park it for now with the intention you will return when your energy is in the space it needs to be.
 
This is not burying it or your head in the sand or bypassing. You are still taking responsibility but acknowledging its presence. Parking it allows you space needed before tackling it.
.
.
 

Fri 5th – Sun 7th : Happiness

 
This might feel an odd card to pop up given the earlier two but it does make a beautiful kind of sense and flow.
 
A reminder that you can find happiness and feel it despite what is going on around you. And if happiness as a word does not resonate try contentment or gratitude. They may feel a better fit.
 
The golden glow and warmth of the card feels comforting and supportive. All contained within when you decide to look.
 
If you feel happy embrace it. If it feels impossible know that time will come again.
 
Do what makes you smile, brings you peace or lights a spark within.
.
.

extra card for 1st to 7th November 2021

Extra for the week : I am not a victim

 
ooft.
 
Now this packs one hell of a wallop does it not.
 
I freaking love this card as it reminds you that you are NOT a victim or a door mat. You are here now have your voice, your truth and can walk your talk. Despite or because of all you have lived and experienced.
 
Was Red Riding Hood a victim? Nope, she took control of a difficult situation, saw through the glamour and story and sorted it out for herself.
 
So this card for the full week acts as a reminder that you can voice your views, perspective and be heard.
 
It doesn’t have to be yelled, or rammed down someones throat (boundaries people). Strength and strength of self can be calm, peaceful, soft yet still carry power.
 
If you have someone in your life telling you what to think, say or do perhaps its time to assess this dynamic. You have strength which you can draw upon to do this.
 
If you need help for this trust me it’s there when you remember to ask.
 
Stand strong.
Be yourself.
Trust your discernment!
.

Mon 25th – Tue 26th : Keep your temper

 
Very, very interesting card this. Why?
Many people for various reasons are very angry right now.
 
There is nothing wrong with being angry, and if you feel it then by hell acknowledge it. Blocking or ignoring it is not a wise choice as it will come back and bite you on the backside later, with reinforcements.
 
But, and this is the trick, try not to let it rule every aspect of your life.
 
It’s exhausting and can play merry hell with your health and wellbeing if you do. Take it from one who knows.
 
This may be a red rag to a bull (hey my birth sign is Taurus so I can say that) already but are there other ways you can communicate to show how you feel. While shouting, blocking or giving the cold shoulder and more may work – they are a short term fix.
 
For some it may be journaling (not for me as that’s not a practice that gels) as then it can be burned to transmute the energy. Art, writing, energetic exercise and more can be a healthy outlet. Are you feeling another emotion and writing it down as anger. Sit with it if you can.
 

And most importantly give yourself a break.

If you’re angry, then you’re angry. Acknowledge it. See it for what it is. Perhaps even work out where it is stemming from.
 
What can you do to change things or is it something outside of your control. You’ll know in your gut which it is. If you can do something about then crack on. If not think outside the box.
 
And if you have someone like the Cheshire cat pushing your last nerve again and again to get a reaction out of you. Take a huge deep breathe, step back and don’t give them the satisfaction of a response until you are in a place to do so calmly.
 
.
 
Also be aware that if you are in a calm state of mind the Collective or those around you may not be. Cut them some slack, they are doing the best they can right now.

Wed 27th – Thur 28th : Nothing is impossible

 
Now I did have another card pop out the deck with this one of a similar message. But this felt the correct one as it was a touch more direct.
 
Are you listening to people speak to you from their place of fear. Telling you what can’t be done, what’s hopeless etc and by extension telling you what you can’t do and what’s “not possible”?
 
If so why? That’s their perspective and experience not yours.
 
Would you rather be true to yourself or be told what to do, how to be, what to think by others? Are they in your shoes? Have they had your experiences ?
 

No.

They have not.

 
Nor have you walked in their shoes – if you’ve been the one doing the discouraging.
 
Nothing is impossible – trust in this. The only limits are what you place upon yourself, or allow others to place upon you.
 
This is a card about self responsibility, empowerment and the journey to autonomy. Listen to your own guidance first. Run others through a filter so you can listen without absorbing their energy.
 
Be true to yourself.
 
If someone says you can’t grow blue roses as they don’t exist – but you know you can. Then do it. Show them that you have other abilities they might not have.
 
And again vice versa.
.

Fri 29th – Sun 31st : Use your imagination

 
And we end the week which is pretty potent with Halloween and Daylight Saving in the UK on Sunday. Thin veils and more.
 
When things get tough, challenging or complicated it can be time to call in your imagination. It’s a powerful tool as so often we shrug it aside.
 
When thinking inside the box no longer works or creates a cycle it’s time to rip it apart and try something new.
 
Be creative. Ask for other possible solutions or pathways. The crazier the better sometimes. You can find nuggets of gold in the “crazy”.
 
Interesting to see Alice and the Cheshire cat pop up in this card for the end of the week given they started the week off. So again a nod to check your temper if provoked.
 
The clock change can make you cranky – or is that just me?

Extra for the full week : Reflection

extra card for the week

 
We been given a heads up that tempers may be flaring, people may be trying to tell you what you can and can’t do and we may have to rely on imagination for a bit.
 
We’re also being given a nudge to look inwards. And that’s sage advise. When you can feel the red mist rising, taking a step back and sense checking yourself isn’t the worst idea.
 
Let this information and self awareness bubble up. Paying attention to the small details.
 
Remember you have the ability to find that point of inner balance and calm, even in the stormiest of energies.
 
This may be a test to see if you are paying attention.

Mon 18th – Tue 19th : Gentleness

 
Very much a change of pace this week. And absolutely a change of pace from me as no arse kicking required.
 
Mainly as many of us are tired – very, very tired.
 
Rather than fighting and pushing through we are being asked to consider something different. To recognise that we have a quieter, softer, gentler aspect. Which we can work with.
 
Gentleness, kindness and compassion are not weakness. They are strength. Deep inner strength and the ability to wield them is something to take comfort from. Learn to embrace yours and see things from another perspective.
 
The ability to be calm and balanced in the face of someone/thing being out of control or in the grip of rage is a brave thing to do. It can take practice but it is possible.
 
Be kind to yourself and watch it ripple out. Being kind to yourself may be stopping beating yourself up for mistakes or perceived mistakes, for showing emotion, for feeling how you feel.
 
Allow yourself permission instead to experience them. Learn from them and then grow.
 
I see the card itself as a very soft unfurling of a fern.
 
Things take time so be patient.

Wed 20th – Thur 21st: Surfacing

 
A card we see fairly frequently on these readings and many of you can bypass my translation and do your own instead.
 
For me I’m very aware of the colour coming up to the surface of this card. The pattern and movement. It doesn’t feel frazzled or explosive , it feels calmer and I can almost see the bubbles coming up and softly popping.
 
You may have ideas, wishes, thoughts starting to make themselves known as you take a moment to breathe, or to hit the pause button.
 
What is coming up may feel a bit out there, or a bit different from your “usual” but ask yourself this. Does it feel like you? Does it make you feel curious? Do you feel happy about it?
 
If yes then perhaps dig a little touch deeper into in all and see what comes up.
 
For some others you may be asked to step outside your comfort zone for a moment or two. Again tune in to how you feel first before making any decisions. Allow it to float up in your awareness and you may find the confirmation you seek.
 
Let the colour come back into your life.

Fri 22nd – Sun 24th : Nurturing Universe

 
Now you can’t fully see all the detail of this card on the photo but you can FEEL it. Beautiful dark swirling colour and patterns with so much detail and depth.
 
Dark mauve, purples, blues and greens. That blend and shift feeling warm and comfortable.
 
Be assured the Universe watches over us all – even if it doesn’t always feel like it at the time.
 
Allow the support to be felt and recognised. And if you need it, be sure and ask.
 
This may be a time of deep reflection for some – to review, to renew to re-do. If this is you then you go ahead.
 
Some others may be a form of support for others doing this work. But only if you have the energy and resources to do so and don’t become drained in the process.
 
As I’m typing I’m hearing the word “trust” this will mean something to those who need to hear it .

Extra card draw for the full week 17th to 24th October

Extra for the full week : Time to Restore

 
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When dragons pop up on non-dragon decks I pay attention.
 
This is a (gentle) reminder to rest, to relax and to restore your energy and physical health. Running a million miles an hour is all very good but it’s not sustainable. You will crash eventually.
 
Use this week where you can to put your energy and health front and centre. To look after yourself. Thus preventing the crash that takes longer to recover from.
 
If you need rest, then rest.
When your body tells you to move, then do a form of exercise that makes it happy.
When you are shown specific food pay attention as it may be your body showing you what is needed.
 
Listen to your body, your inner guidance and watch for the small details. Not a week for over stimulation but rather to slow down and to reflect.
 
When a dragon talks about restoration it’s time to listen.

Mon 11th – Tue 12: Happiness

 
This may feel like a bit of an odd card for some folk. But it’s a reminder that you can be happy despite what is going on around you. Or despite people telling you the world is a terrible place with all these awful things happening or due to happen.
 
It can depend where you choose to place your attention.
 
If you focus on doom and gloom you will attract just that. But when you can shift your focus to gratitude and happiness, even for the small things or small wins you can attract more.
 
Now I’m not saying be happy clappy, sunshine and unicorn sprinkles or slapping a smile on your face . As 1, that’s just not me and 2, that’s a whole load of bypassing…… Stand up for what you believe in, shed light on the shadow , honour what you feel , when you feel it. But bring in balance.
 
But a caution when you live in that space for too long it can overtake you.
 
Do your best not to block prosperity, abundance and happiness from your life.
 
Try being present and allowing yourself to feel joy, to laugh and to be content if you feel it. If you feel a need to simplify things, take a step back and re-assess then do it.
 
Be conscious who’s voice you listen to and who you give head space to. If it/they make you grind your teeth or give you a headache just thinking about it , it may be time to move on.
 
You are responsible for your choices.
 
The card colour for me is a nod towards the solar plexus and your personal power.

Wed 13th – Thur 14th : Frequency Shift

 
Ok spotting a theme now as I start typing these up And mid-week for some you may feel a significant change/shift in either your energy or the Collective energy around you.
 
For some this may be the start of a shift for you at a personal level. And these aren’t always smooth sailing but with hindsight you can see they were absolutely the best thing to happen. Might not feel like it at the time. And for some it can be you wake up one morning and things have shifted without you consciously being involved. It all depends on the work and yourself.
 
Some others may be coming out of a shift and given we have planets starting to move OUT of retrograde phase it may be in synch.
 
A handful of you are finishing up a shift as we all work at different rates, times and speeds. Take some time to allow things to integrate before sprinting into the new. You might be a bit wobbly to begin with and require a little R&R first.
 
Whatever the change it will be the right thing for you. But you may not realise it immediately. Give it time.
 
Change is constant and can only be held back for so long.
 
The card holds a lot of blue which for me is the throat or the voice. Allow your truth to come forwards – owning it, speaking it and living it.
 
The image itself is also showing growth from the egg to something more complex. So if you feel like coming out of your shell this may be part of the shift.

Fri 15th – Sun 17th : Path of the Soul

 
Now this card may push a few people but in a gentle way.
 
This card is all about the opening of the heart and changing how you react to others as well as yourself. The card speaks of love but I hear compassion.
 
And true compassion – from the soul and centre of who you are. It takes time and practice to get into the flow. Any resistance you may have is natural but you can go past it.
 
Allowing yourself to realise that people have different views, thoughts, beliefs and experiences can help with this. We all see different parts of the bigger picture. While we may not have the same view we can acknowledge that all is valid – it’s simply someone else has had that particular experience. Which at a Collective level means we have all experienced it in some way (let that sit with you).
 
Having compassion does not mean you become a door-mat. Having good working boundaries is a form of compassion to yourself. And honouring others boundaries is a beautiful thing.
 
If you find you have walked over some do your best not to beat yourself up – but to learn, grow and shift from the experience/realisation.
 
We are all still (mostly) human and life can be complicated as we navigate through it all.
 
Be kind to yourself first – then it ripples out.
 
The strong pink and green in this speaks of the heart (green) and the higher heart (the expansive pink).

Extra for the week : Assistance

Extra card drawn for 11th to 17th October 2021

 
And the extra card for the week is this beautiful reminder that help is at hand. But please remember to ASK. It may need permission/an invitation from you first before it can activate.
 
The blue is that again of the throat or your truth so be sure and speak it. When you do it cannot be misunderstood or taken out of context.
 
Drop any pretence and be yourself. Some people may struggle with it but you will feel better for being yourself.
 
For some others you may the help someone else needs. If you are in a position to offer that help without draining your energy or resources then go for it.
