Oracle card reading 18th – 24th Oct 2021

cards drawn for 18th to 24th October 2021

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.
