**better late than never **

Mon 18th – Tue 19th : Dragon Guide

Now I always pay attention when dragon cards or references pop up in decks you don’t expect them in. This for me is one of two things : either it’s time to step up and really own your stuff, or they have your back for something.

It’s a strong card and it’s generally a link to self empowerment. That’s what they do – they teach you how to be you. They give you the tools you need to really get comfortable with who and what you are, how you express yourself and how to move forwards. So pay attention as they’ll only give you this so many times – if you choose to ignore the info/guidance they will step away.

They are not here to be “trained”, to act like big puppies, or to be commanded. Don’t kid yourself. Any of that and you will regret it. Be respectful of them and the lessons and you’ll get along fine.

So stepping up to be yourself. It can be hard at times to not take other people’s beliefs, opinions and words as gospel. Especially when they relate to yourself. But remember their perspective is THEIR perspective not YOUR truth. You can break free of this and express your own opinions, views etc and be heard. You don’t have to yell to do it. If you don’t appreciate others shoving their stuff down your throat then don’t do it to others. The second you respond in kind you simply repeat the cycle. Try a different way instead. It’ll make itself known. You can also deflect anything they send your way – you don’t have to accept it.

If it’s the latter and you need a bit of back up for something you need to do or say then you have it. Trust you’re being looked after and you will be. It may simply be a word or a look but it’s enough to get a ball rolling that’s been needing kicked for quite some time. Do it or don’t you have free will but the support you need is right in front of you.

 

Wed 20th – Thur 21st : The Grid

Interesting one as for me this is about the connection to all , not the separation from the collective.

I know some people like to detach from the collective energies and that’s fine. We are ALL part of that web and our actions impact on it.

When we detach we can unintentionally spread the vibration of separation rather than unity. Just to give you a different perspective to mull over or get your teeth into. No judgement as you have to do what’s best for you right now. Simply be aware of possible consequences to choices.

If you choose to stay connected and work with the collective energies you may start to pick up the threads of what stirs up and why. Of working back through the energies and helping to either anchor or release.

You may even start to see the bigger expansion of the interconnectedness of how far it actually stretches and how we can bring about positive impacts. but also become aware of how to distinguish between what is yours and what isn’t.

I ask you to sit with both sides of what I’ve written to see what it stirs up for you. You may even find the balance point between that works for you.

And remember what is right for one person isn’t necessarily right for everyone. If someone has a different viewpoint from you it doesn’t make them right or wrong – they may be connecting with a different aspect than you.

 

Fri 22nd – Sun 24th : Blossoming

Ok time for me to be blunt (why change the habit of a lifetime). You are expanding, you are shifting, you are opening up and bringing in your own powers and gifts.

Even. If. You. Don’t. Believe. Me.

Even if you say you’re coasting, you’re stuck, you aren’t moving ……you are. By questioning things, yourself etc you are acknowledging they exist and are real. That is all progression and forwards movement.

Keep going.

Start to trust in yourself for a change.
Trust everything is as it should be.
And it will be.

 

Summary:

Start of the week – step into who you are and go for it. You are you not someone else’s belief or expectation – that’s on them not you. It’s their task to manage their expeditions not yours. Speak up if you feel the need and know you can. Work with the dragon energies respectfully and they can guide you in this. Embrace your self empowerment and keep going.

Mid week – truly start to see the interconnectedness of all things and your place in amongst it. If you feel a need to detach then do so but be aware of the possible vibration of separation that can arise.

If you feel the need to really move into the collective energies then do so but be aware of learning to discern what is yours and what isn’t.

Find a balance.

End of the week – trust in yourself, the work you’re doing and that you are progressing. Even if you don’t feel it right now. It is happening , possibly on a level you aren’t fully aware of right now. But as you trust you allow flow. This is a stage of Blossoming which you may not fully see for a while. Doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

Mon 11th – Tue 12th : The Dawn Watcher – Bells will ring

Ok folks this is a bit of a heads-up. To be aware of what’s happening around you and to pay attention to any cautions or low level warnings that come up right now.

Trust you are watched over and looked after by your team and they will step in when it’s needed.

You may already be aware of something on the edges of your awareness thats sitting out of frequency. Listen to your gut with this as the confirmations you need will be presented to you. I’ve already had mine last night/this morning so I know where it’s coming from, from whom and why. And I’ve seen it in triplicate which is the confirmation I ask for via my team. That’s fine, I’m aware.

Now is a time to sense check before you leap head first into anything as it may not be in your best interest.

This is also about staying on your path and not being distracted accidentally OR deliberately by others. We all work at our own speed.

Those who look as if they are stretching ahead leave them be you have no clue what they have gone through to get to that point. Those who feel like they are falling behind leave them be you have no clue what they are dealing with right now.

We all get our moments in the sun so allow others to shine when it’s their time.

I see quite a bit of people hitching rides on other coat-tails. It’s one of those things that can happen out of fear of missing out or fear of being left behind. There is no such thing it’s all an illusion so try and not fall for it. As ultimately it serves no-one.

Concentrate on you, your boundaries and your own path. Find your focus in the details.

 

Wed 13th – Thur 14th : Runes – Perception

Running hand in hand this one. This for me is about understanding and expanding your perceptions. Of appreciating people have other view points and have a right to be heard.

Try and not fall into any judgements with this one. Despite how hard it can be to fight against that programmed instinct and I have a feeling some of us may be pushed hard over this one this week. It may push something to the surface for you if you allow it.

Just because something works for you does not mean it works for the next person. It’s not supposed to. If someone offers a differing viewpoint you don’t agree with then fine agree to disagree and move on. It’s oh so easy to leap to the defensive or have a clever answer to things but in can spiral so fast out of nothing/nowhere.

Be respectful of others where you can, understand we all see things differently, but try and not be a doormat. You have a voice and it holds weight too.

Ensure your energetic boundaries are in place in your own space and all will be well.

 

Fri 15th – Sun 17th : The Butterfly Ferrets

Bit of a big week potentially with another shift in the offing for some of us.

When things seem to be coming apart at the seams, masks falling away, relationship/friendship shifts and potential challenges a change really is inevitable. See them for the gift they are to facilitate this.

This is your opportunity to re-write your path your way. Of saying if you want to be a butterfly winged ferret then you be a butterfly winged ferrets and to hell with what others think.

Let those wings unfurl gently and without any rush or urgency. Feel into this new energy and get comfortable with it before you try your first flight. It may be a bit shaky but that’s ok. It’s new and will get to become second nature soon enough.

Be thankful for what you went through for this ability to be reimagine yourself and move forwards.

Your life is your life and you do the best you can at any given moment. Remember that – it’s one of your greatest strengths even if others say differently.

Summary:

Start of the week – keep your head down and focussed on your own work/path right now. If you get an inner knowing or feeling that something isn’t quite right or is slightly off then take note. We get these confirmations and when we listen to them it can save a lot of heart ache later on. Steer clear of any drama or getting pulled into anyone else’s storm right now. By all means support them but you don’t have to carry them.

Mid week – be aware that everyone has different views and perceptions. And everyone has a voice that is worthy of being heard. If you don’t agree, then agree to disagree and move on try and not get conned into a fight for the sake of it. It’s not worth it. Keep your boundaries in check.

End of the week – this has the potential to be quite a strong week on several fronts and with that comes the possibility of a shift, or coming out from one. Do your thing, take your time and let the energy settle before trying to run with it. Things can be wobbly during/just after a shift so let it integrate fully. You’ll thank yourself later .

Oracle card reading 4th – 10th Feb 2019

Mon 4th – Tue 5th : Ghost of the Pumpkin Patch

Interesting card as this ghostly little figure has popped up as a reminder that you have forgotten about something. A situation/person/situation that happened which was a blessing in disguise. But you have allowed it to pass by unacknowledged.

Take a moment to take stock of where you are and give thanks and gratitude for all you have. Both the good AND the not so good.

When you start to take stock you may have an epiphany of what it is you’ve missed either by accident or deliberately. Not sure what I mean? This is an example from yours truly : a job you felt forced or pressurised into leaving through horrendous ill health but actually was the best thing for you and the pressure has fallen away. It was never the right thing. I’m grateful to see this now and learn from it.

This is also a minder with the reference to the pumpkin patch on the card that this extends to harvest or a MISSED harvest. Where you either didn’t collect what was yours or someone else did…When perhaps they shouldn’t have.

It may be a call for some to start drawing debts owed to you. Not just in reference to money but to energy as well. Of pulling parts of yourself back. Of becoming whole once more.

You have worked hard to get to where you are so try and not allow others to take credit for your work, your words or your energy. You don’t have to jump up and down about it or fall into anger/fear simply acknowledge it. See what it’s showing you and continue to move forwards.

Give thanks for what you have and you send a very powerful message out to the Universe.

Wed 6th – Thur 7th : Attunement

This card really struck me when it popped up not so much the image, or the main title but the secondary title of “Attunement”.

For me this is about coming into alignment with yourself, your energy, and who you are or will be.

Of finding your strengths even if currently you have absolutely no idea what they may be.

By tuning into yourself and going deep you start to get little snippets of clarity. It may only be a fraction of a second but it’s enough.

You may have a strong sense of what ISN”T right for you which is pretty much the same thing. Go with what you reveal to yourself. You are finding your own balance – and it can take a bit of time so try and let it come to the surface without forcing it.

Yes I know it’s frustrating. But it’ll be worth it in hindsight.

If like me you’re feeling a bit blinkered then fair enough, carry on with everything else and in the quiet times the knowledge, remembering and information will come.

The balance is there just below the surface.

Pay attention to your gut feelings and instincts and where you find yourself guided – it reveals a hell of a lot more than you may realise.

Fri 8th – Sun 10th : Mermaid in a Koi pond

Flowing on from the earlier cards. This is another nod to finding who you are right now and into the near future.

Of embracing all your quirks that make you , well YOU. Everyone is unique but we forget that and try and force ourself into the accepted norm, people expectations etc and it can be exhausting.

So let yourself be free. Learn to understand what makes you tick, ignore peoples perceptions and opinions. They only relate to them not you. And I’m aware this can be a big ask. If it makes you feel shaky start small and build.

You will eventually get to the stage of not giving a monkeys what others think of you and your life. No, really. I’m proof of that if nothing else.

It’s time to grow into your “new” self, your new skin. Of shifting from the Koi to the Dragon (Chinese folklore that Koi are unformed dragons) . Of letting go of the fish pond you have outgrown and finding the new large body of water that calls to you.

Flow………

Summary:

A week of self development it feels like in all honesty.

Start of the week: give thanks and gratitude for all you have around you. But pay heed to any blessings in disguise you’ve had and have overlooked. It may be that reading this is enough to point you in the direction of where you need to focus.

Mid week : time to really discover what it is that makes you tick, what makes you YOU. What gives you balance. Use the quiet time to let the information flow – don’t force it just let it flow.

End of the week : time to start getting comfortable in your own skin. Of allowing your energy to expand. It’s safe to do so and in truth others opinions and perceptions will stand to fall away from you as you realise they aren’t yours. You are your own person with your own beliefs and perspectives – break free of the small pond you’ve placed yourself in as you’ve more than outgrown it ….you have bigger spaces to play in.

Bit of a different oracle card reading this week as 3 cards fell out of one deck when I started to draw them. I’ve decided to go with them.

I’ve also been advised these cards are changeable through the week so I’m not reading them against specific days of the week. Simply as the potential during the week.

You may find them flitting about day to day.

* Illuminate *

Now it’s not lost on me the timing of this when I drew the card. As we come to the end on Monday of the 2 week long eclipse widow. Which opened at new moon and closes with a total solar eclipse on Full Moon. This hits the UK (where I’m based) at 5:17am which is the reason for it being talked about in this weeks reading.

This is a time to fully shine a light on all sorts of things that you’ve had hidden from you, have buried or have even hidden from yourself. Well, no more. This kind of energy makes it very hard for things to stay in the shadow. It’s being pulled to the surface to be seen, acknowledged and dealt with. Try not to bury your head in the sand over what comes up as you’ll only delay the inevitable.

Instead try facing it head on and seeing what comes up to either resolve, heal or cancel out. You have all the answers which will come out when you ask.

This is a time to look beyond the constructs you’ve placed around yourself, not those you feel have been places around you by others. I’m talking about the ones YOU’VE created for yourself.

Self doubt is a big thing and can make you dim your light almost to the point of snuffing it out.

Try a different tact with these powerful energies and ask your higher self, your heart, your gut, what you can do to help shine your own light.

To be seen. Be heard. Finding the value of your own voice.

You may be a bit surprised what you find out but go with it, rather than fighting or doubting it. This is a period of so much potential for abundance and manifestation. Use it wisely.

* Deeper Look *

This sits so beautifully with the first card as it back’s up the call to look beneath the surface.

To find the truth beneath the pretty surface picture.

It can be a daunting task to dig a bit more, to trust your intuition and know what’s being presented isn’t the whole of the situation. But you do have the skills to go sleuthing. Particularly into your own energy, mindset and belief system.

Take note of the smaller details – as they say the devil is in the details. You may even start following a trail of breadcrumbs from the smallest of things. Go with it. Follow the rabbit hole if it feels right for you.

Take the time.
Make the time.

By sense checking the foundations it makes you stronger in the long run. Yes you may need to tweak a few things along the way or change your “thinking” to “feeling”. But you’ll see the benefits quickly when you do.

Think of it as an extended form of self care if that sits with you more easily.

Be vigilant as your team/higher self/guardians may be giving you the signs and confirmations you’ve asked for. Stay focussed and you’ll “get” them.

* Resolution *

And now we have the reason for all this time looking at what makes you tick, whats going on around you. As you may just find that thing that’s been feeling out of place or out of alignment suddenly makes sense.

A feeling that the missing jigsaw piece has been hiding under the table the whole time where you couldn’t see it till you got the torch out and went searching.

So many people have been feeling out of sorts or just not quite “right” for want of a better phrase. In truth they’ve been experiencing various shifts which can leave you feeling slightly sea-sick.

This is a time of settling and evening out, of integrating where you are from where you’ve been. Of starting to see the bigger picture and where it all fits together. It’s not always smooth sailing and may bring emotive situations to a head. But you’ll see the sense in it all.

Let connections, energies and people drift away if it’s the right thing for you. You’ll know in your core if it is.

In time this brings a sense of peace, calm and purpose to you. Allow it space to come in.

You’ll thank yourself for it later.

Summary:

Interesting week of potential ups and down’s that may swap about day to day (r for some almost hour by hour) Harness the energy of full moon and the total solar eclipse which closes the 2 week eclipse window we’ve been in. They are big energies so work with them rather than against them.

The flow this week moves from throwing light on whats going on in and around you. Illuminating things so you can SEE them rather than ignore, hide or have someone obscure them from you.

To digging deeper into what you find presented to you. If it feels there’s more than meets the eye trust it. As you’re spot on. Go past the surface glamour and have a good look round to what you find is actually going on.

Finally flowing to a resolution of sorts. Of finding the missing piece or jarring frequency of what has been making things feel just not quite as they should be. Almost feeling a click as the pieces/story/energies fall properly onto place.

This week has a lot of potential if you choose to work with it. As always you have full free will. So do what’s right for you.

Oracle card reading 14th – 20th Jan 2019

 

Mon 14th – Tue 15th : Chumara ~ Web of all life

It may be time for you to start looking at all your connections and the web you have and are continuing to weave around you. We throw tendrils and threads of connection out over the course of our life . Some remain stable and strong, others start to weaken and some may break.

Now is the time to really look and see where your connections are wobbly or have splintered. Can they be repaired or would it be best to dismantle them completely?

we and our vibrations change the people we surround ourselves with also start to change. Be truly honest with yourself – are you staying connected out of fear of disconnection, a misguided sense of loyalty or even ,dare I say it, laziness? Would it be better for you AND them to let the connection dissolve?

Stagnant energy is stagnant energy and this can apply between people as well. If you don’t stay in contact or communicate regularly then the connection does stagnant. By letting go with grace that stagnation can dissolve and the flow can restart – for all concerned.

Are you clinging on to old work colleagues, old school friends, social media connections that just aren’t the same any more? It’s a tough call but perhaps it’s time to look at those threads and break them loose.

This also starts to give you a view as to how you have changed over time. What and who once resonated have fallen away – and that’s ok. It’s a part of shifts and integrations.

As you let some go you will find new ones coming forwards who are likely to be more in alignment with who you are now, not who you were then.

Does that make sense? It will to those who need to hear it.

For some others it ay be an opportunity to look beyond yourself into the bigger picture. Of seeing the interconnectedness we share with the collective. And whether we like it or not we ARE a part of it. See that any small shift or change you make for yourself you make for the bigger collective group.

 

Wed 16th – Thur 17th : Aura ~ Observation

Interestingly this card popped out upside down so I’m going to translate it two ways – at least what the team are showing me.

For some this is a time to start seeing more deeply what’s actually going on around you – beyond what people say and do. Of sensing what’s NOT being said or done. Of trusting your gut sense and discernment.

It’s all too easy to witness the mask and take it as gospel – even the ones we wear ourselves.

Take time to step back rather than jumping in and observe for a bit. The hidden nuances do start to come up to the surface when you move back slightly. If someone appears to have your best interests at heart but in truth has their best interest at heart you’ll see mannerism or patterns pop up to confirm this for you.

For some others – and this was the card dealt upside down – you’ve been blinkered and can’t see the wood for the trees. It’s time to wake up and smell the coffee – so to speak. Time to stop kidding yourself.

Take off your own self imposed blinkers if you’ve been avoiding dealing with something as it may be too hard or too difficult. You have witnessed these in observation but have ignored or discounted them.

Stop it.
Listen to them instead – it’s important.

 

Fri 18th – Sun 20th : The Time Guardian ~You have time

This is a card we can all relate too.

How many of us say:

“I’m too busy”
“There aren’t enough hours in the day”
“wow things are speeding up”
“Is it the weekend yet”
“I wish it was Spring/Summer”

We all do it. Lament the excess or lack of perceived time and convince ourselves its true. It isn’t really – time is a human construct and we fall into it willingly. following patterns and clocks that can start to rule your life.

Whoa there.

This is a call to adapt back to natural time – of watching and noting the change of the seasons and flowing with them rather than against them Seeing the sunrise or sunset. Noting the phases of the moon and how it impacts your feelings. Of rediscovering your own natural ebb and flow.

Gift yourself a day with no clocks, watches , timers or devices and see how your day plays out instead when you take the restrictions off. Break from your routine and realise that you have as much time as you need. If it isn’t important can it wait? Rather than cramming it all into one space and adding stress to your system.

Ask yourself and your team for more time if you need it, or ask them how to fill any excess you have.

And observe the language you use and if you hear yourself wishing for more or less “time” ask yourself where this is stemming from. You may shock yourself with this one if you really dig into it.

Summary:

Start of the week : time to really look at your connections with others and decide if they are stable, can be repaired or would be better to let them go. Really sense into yourself to work out who you resonate with and who you’ve moved away from. It may be a painful process but the results do outweigh that over time.

Mid week – time to take the blinkers off and see what’s going on around you. Of observing behaviours, energies and mannerisms that reveal more than the mask conceals. Trust your gut and discernment as it’s showing you something important.

End of the week – cut yourself some slack and try a day or so without beig ruled by a clock/watch. Find your own patterns rather than the ones you’ve has dictated to you – as we all have. Let yourself feel and sense the seasons, the natural time and relax into it for a change.

Oracle card reading 24th – 30th December 2018

Mon 24th – Tue 25th : Confidence

Ok lets start with the obvious bit here given the dates this falls on. Christmas for those who celebrate can be an interesting time.

And for some the forced proximity to a number of people can be challenging at best.
This is a reminder to have confidence in yourself and who you are.

You don’t have to bend to the will of others to fit in. Celebrate being you. As you are without others expectations and beliefs. Allow others to think and see what they wish as they will regardless, try not to take it personally. Remember who you are at heart and if you have to say and do things simply to keep the peace don’t feel bad for doing it. We pick our battles at times and thats ok.

The flip side

For others this is a special time filled with people we’d love to spend a lot more time with. Relish the time and enjoy it for what it is. Use this joy with confidence to fully embrace everything.

Most of all this card is a reminder that you are who you are.
Yes you may have a dip here and here, be angry at times, or simply not at your best. And that’s ok. We are all still human. Making mistakes or what we feel may have been the “wrong” decision is a way in which we learn and grow.

Know that the dip will eventually flip the opposite direction in time. It’s all as its meant to be and your confidence and trust in yourself will return and grow.

Confidence isn’t always about the bright face we can show to the world when everything is perfect – its the quiet trust and knowing inside that all will be as it is meant to be.

Wed 26th – Thur 27th : Clouds ~ Mystical

This is one for when the festive chaos dies down a touch and you touch back down to earth. Of seeing the signs popping up around you for the questions you’ve been asking. Pay attention to the small things. They can be the detail you’ve been asking for.

Clouds come and go and appear to be day to day things but when you really look at them they can reveal so much. I for one get a lot of information, beings and confirmation in clouds so I pay attention to them. It may be that for you it’s music, random conversation with repeating themes, dreams, a word or topic coming up again and again on your social media feed. Whatever it is the powers that be use the form that makes most sense for you to be able to translate.

Look beneath the surface of what comes up and start to see the magic at play, the “co-incidences”. The more you observe the more start to appear . You aren’t going crazy you’re simply receiving what you’ve asked for. You’ll be more confident at translating them the more you practice.

Fri 28th – Sun 30th : The Dawn Watcher

Another minder to pay attention to what goes on around you but in a more cautionary tone.

As at times you will be given “heads-up” from your team, your guardians and what not. But only if you are open to listening and seeing. They are giving you important information that you need for something coming forward. It again may be in the form of dreams, knowings or a gut feel. Listen to them as they have your best interest at heart.

If you close this off or write it off to your imagination they may simply stop over time which does not serve you in the long run.

Pay attention to what your body is telling you as well. As it picks up on things before you do – so to speak. These “ringing bells” can be viewed as an early warning system of sorts. One we all have. If we choose to listen that is.

So pay attention folks and anything that feels a bit “off” take a step back and assess before jumping into action.

You’ll thank yourself later.

Summary :

Start of the week – have trust and confidence in yourself about who and what you are. Even if you don’t have full visibility just yet have of exactly what that means. Yes we make mistakes and take wrong turns – but we learn, grow and move forwards. With this in time comes confidence in making your own decisions and following your own path.

Mid week – open up to seeing the messages and signs you have been asking for. Pay attention to repeating themes in music, conversations, social media …..it’s what you’ve been asking for after all. pay attention to the smaller details as they hold the most information for you.

End of the week – again a reminder to pay attention but this time to something a little different. You are being given a heads-up from your own team/higher self regarding something potentially about to hit that may not be the best thing for you. Pay heed to any gut feelings, repeating dreams or simply knowings about something. Trust your gut with this.

Oracle card reading 17th – 23rd Dec 2018

 

**The first card is not going to be gentle in what came through – bit of tough love time as that’s what the team are giving me……**

Mon 17th – Tue 18th : Scrying mirror ~ Projection

Ok now this is very much in keeping with the energies this full year but in particular the last few weeks. This is showing me a couple of things so lets go one by one.

Firstly

Being aware of all things around you and not being so bloody blinkered in your pursuit of something that you are blinded to the shadow aspects popping up around it. We all do it. Go hell for leather towards something we want or feel we need to the detriment of everything else in our path.

Whoah there.

Have you had a look at what you might be flattening in your rush to the finish line? Other people, your own best and highest good….the list goes on.

Take a moment to stop and really look at what you are doing and perhaps ignoring in your stampede (and yes these words are being used for a reason) . Have you been completely honest with yourself WHY you feel you want or need whatever it is you are chasing. Or has it crossed over into slightly obsessed territory?

It’s easy to get so deeply entrenched you can’t see the woods for the trees. We have ALL been there. If you can apply the brakes and really look at the last few weeks. Do you feel comfortable with what you have been doing and where you are? If not take a bit of time to re-assess and decide if continuing to chase is the best thing or not.

I’ll leave that one with you.

Secondly

Is the word projection thats used with this card. The immediate thing that came to mind is to be aware of what YOU project.

“Huh?”

We all project our feelings/thoughts/ideas out there its what creates our own reality (look into the field of quantum physics and you’ll get a better feel for this that I can explain). So if you feel angry and project or focus on this you may find more and more things adding to this feeling. But have you considered that you may be attempting to pass this to others? In an effort to ignore or get rid of it rather than dealing with or looking at it?

Have you spoken or unburdened to that person who always makes you feel better and walked away feeling “ah thats better I can think again. Good for you for having that person BUT have you considered they may have had their own stuff going on and now have your burden to carry as well?

It’s a bit of a sobering thought is it not.

By all means unburden but do it in a way that you are simply talking it out and not passing it over either for them to fix, carry for you. It’s still yours to deal with. If you just need a sounding board TELL THEM THAT UPFRONT so they know not to take it on as their own.

It’s time to do your own work. And look at the shadow stuff that comes up. If you keep burying it or passing it off to someone else then it will only come back later with reinforcements and the person who was your go to may no longer be there for you……

Lastly.

The other stream I get from this is in tandem for those of you who have taken on others pains, worries, stories, drama. It isn’t yours. You don’t need to carry it for them. And I’m speaking mainly about adults not children that’s very different.

It’s easy to feel empathy with someone and want to help. But taking their stuff on doesn’t help them or you. By all means let them talk it out, brain dump, brain storm to find other options but try not to do it for them. It may even go against the grain to take that step back. But you can’t help if you’re drained of energy can you.

It can even lead to resentment down the line. You are more than capable of putting energetic boundaries in place so that whatever is sent to you does not attach. Trust me as someone who does this regularly and has done for decades. Just be aware. Observe. Increase boundaries where needed and if it comes to it dissolve attachment, step back a bit and make sure you are energetically stable the next time they want to speak/connect.

All of these are interconnected and I’m sure you can see the thread that runs between.

Wed 19th – Thur 20th : New Direction

Ok moving on…..

The timing for this is not lost on me in the slightest. Those of you who work with the sabbats will notice this is JUST before winter solstice in the northern hemisphere and summer solstice in the southern hemisphere. It’s a time for taking stock, deciding what you wish to carry forwards for the next 6 months. Of leaving behind what no longer serves and allowing in what will serve you.

It may be a bit of a shift in direction, beliefs, thoughts, actions but it’s for a reason.

Change is a constant in life and being open to going with them rather than fighting all of them it puts a message out to the powers that be.
That you are open to more.
Of being more.
Of doing more.

Life is not a straight line.

So be very clear in what you feel you are bringing in.

Fri 21st – Sun 23rd : Receiving

And this falls bang on Solstice on the 21st and Full moon on the 22nd – so a fair bit of potential energy wise this weekend.

This is a time for showing that you are open to receiving.

Many of us are brilliant at giving but hopeless at receiving. Think about it – how do you react to random gifts, compliments etc

Do you attempt to brush them off or down play them?
Do you rush to repay them in some way and thereby taking the love out of the gift?
Or do you simply say “thank you” and accept with the grace they were given?

Finding or re-discovering that balance between giving and receiving is a beautiful thing.
It’s not always easy and may require a whole hep of dropping programming and long held beliefs but it can be done.

And by doing so you shine a light for others to either find you or be gently inspired or even guided for a short period of time.

It’s no bad thing and the Solstice and Full moon are perfect times to do this. Of setting crystal clear intent to invite in what’s for your best and highest good and releasing what no longer serves.

Think of it as an opportunity clear the blocked or stagnant energy out and replace it with free flowing energy in its place.

The potential is there – it’s how you choose to work with it that counts.

Summary:

Start of the week – ok no sugar coating.

If you’ve been stampeding after something for a while now take a break and look around you. Have you compromised yourself or others in this pursuit? Is it really in your best interest or have you gone into obsessive territory. Only you can answer that question.

Be aware of what your project to others and may unknowingly attempt to pass to them – yes they may appear strong and unruffled but they may have a better game face. By all means unburden but do your own work don’t try and palm it off to others.

If you’ve had stuff passed to you – you can let it go. You don’t have to carry it. Either pass it back or send it to Source. You have your own “stuff” to handle.

Mid week – you have an opportunity to really look at where you are and let go of what really isn’t working for you any more. Change is constant and embracing it and new directions you can have presented to you puts a powerful message out to the universe.

End of the week – if you feel it then work with the Solstice and Full Moon energies in tandem – of really letting go of what you no longer wish to carry forwards and being open to what’s coming in. By being open to receive (if inline with your highest best) you take away some of your self imposed limits. That balance between giving and receiving is a special thing. Honour it.

Oracle card reading 10th – 16th December 2018

Mon 10th – Tue 11th : a brilliant solution is on its way

The first thing that jumps out at me with this card is the word PATIENCE. A solution is on its way give it the time and space it needs to come forwards. Attempting to speed it up or force it into being may make it disappear.

As with all things be aware that the solution may not be what you WANT but will be what you NEED.

For those who are feeling under severe pressure, or under attack it can be very difficult to think straight in these times. So many other peoples voices, thoughts, opinions can fly around you to the point they become deafening and you can no longer hear yourself. Try to mute these other streams of information and listen to yourself again.

What you possibly don’t realise is you likely have the solution within you. You just can’t see or hear it right now. It’s there buried. So ask yourself what you need to do to move things on, change the situation , or take things apart.

We all have little moments of brilliance and it may be a spark to look at something from an angle you hadn’t considered, something that worked for you elsewhere that you can tweak in this situation, or speaking to someone who gives you that moment of clarity that things start to make sense again.

Listen to yourself in this and put your needs first. Not everyone else or you’ll keep stuck in that loop. Whatever you need WILL come forwards. Perhaps not what you expected but it will make sense when you look back on it properly.

Wed 12th – Thur 13th – Cornucopia

It may feel odd if you are in a bit of turmoil to be seeing such a positive card. But look at it as a glimpse of what is to come when things start to move.

All the seeds you’ve planted and taken pains to grow are coming to the point of harvest. Of enjoying the fruits of your labour. Of providing the next set of seeds to plant and nurture.

Now many people equate abundance with money and while it is an aspect of abundance there are so many – health, peace, clarity, inner knowing…the list goes on.

Be aware of each strand of abundance in your life and give thanks for them. The more grateful you are , the more you can attract…and you never know where it will lead you.

Fri 14th – Sun 16th : Be Light of heart

Ok this did make me laugh as it’s essentially saying lighten up 🙂

We can get very bogged down doing our own work, finding the pathways and going deeper down rabbit holes of information that we can get a bit serious and intense. Or lose our sense of humour and even sense of self along the way.

Lighten up – don’t take everything so seriously.

It’s ok to have a sense of humour, to take time to do the things that make you happy, of spending time with folk who “get” you…….these are the things that make you glow, that lift you up, that balance out the harder stuff we deal with.

You can be serious AND still have a sense of humour. It keeps you grounded and at times sane.

Embrace the joy you find. Remember what joy is to you and go with it. By embracing it and finding the times that make you happy your light glows that little bit brighter.

It’s a beacon to others that they too can lighten up too.

Summary:

Start of the week – it’s very easy to get overwhelmed with others opinions, feelings, thoughts etc on your situation. To the extent you can no longer hear your own voice. Do what you can to mute that stream of noise and listen to yourself again. Ask yourself what the solution will be to this – you may be surprised by what you hear. And practice patience with this – it may not happen overnight, give it time to develop, it will come forwards. It may be in a form you didn’t want but it will be what you NEED.

Mid week – take a moment to stop and look at the abundance you have around you. Even in challenging situations they can be found when you give it a go. Even if you can’t sense them just yet the promise of fruition is there if you choose to embrace it.

End of the week – time to lighten up and stop taking life so seriously. You’ll crack if you don’t find a way to let loose…..watch a film that makes you laugh, spend time with people who lift you up, read a book you love, eat a meal you adore – whatever helps your inner glow do it. Life is short so ENJOY it.

Mon 3rd – Tue 4th: Alignment

Liking this a big bit as it’s all about balance for me. For some it’s coming back into alignment with yourself and the new energies following a recent shift – it takes time.

For some others you are either in or about to hit a shift of some sort and it can throw your balance off. So much so you may not know which way you are spinning.

Don’t panic it DOES calm down and you start to see where and what has changed in and around you. You can pick through the finer details when the room stops spinning so to speak.

You may even find what once felt right for you feels a little “off”. Give yourself permission to shake off or drop what feels out of balance for you. To walk away from whats out of frequency. Of listening TO YOUR GUT AND DISCERNMENT above all other things.

The more you can trust yourself the quicker these wobbles or shifts can transition.

I know I’ve been saying this for quite a while but it’s getting important to not only listen but to act on it – you won’t be given too many more nudges if you keep ignoring them.

Do what is right for you to get back to that feeling of balance – you’ll know exactly what it is when you ask yourself direct.

Wed 5th – Thur 6th : Healing

You’ll notice a strong theme with the 3 cards this week as the flow from one to the other very smoothly.

This is a short period of retreat or intense self care. To adjust to the changes and makes some form of sense – or have an understanding around them.

Some changes you will be making will feel harsh , hard or even very deeply conflicted. Take a small step back to see the bigger picture around you –
if you continue where you are will things change?
Can it be fixed?
Or is it better for all concerned to let it dissolve?

This can be letting go or situations or even people – and they may have caused hurt in the run up to this choice/change being made.

It’s very easy for me to sit and say their reaction says more about them than about you when I’m not the one feeling it. But I can empathise as we all go through periods of time like this. It’s our development and forwards motion.

So take TIME, rest, step back and let yourself heal emotionally, physically and energetically before you do anything else.

Think of this time as a deep breath before the next round. There is always light with the shadow when you look for it.

Fri 7th – Sun 9th: Infinite Possibilities

And the wheel turns once more.

Can you see the infinity loop in the card right at the centre? This is you – no really.

Life is full of ever possibility you can imagine and then some more. It’s your choice as to how you wish your life to go – a series of choices and directional changes. You make the best decision you can at the time.

Yes some may not go quite where you had planned, and you may need to make a quick change here and there but thats free will.

You have choice and control over your decisions. Never forget that – especially when others attempt to tell you differently.

Seize the moment, see everything spread out before you and go with what makes you jump up and down with excitement and glee. Anything that makes you sluggish, sad or flat ……perhaps not the route for you right now.

Work with the recent shifts and you may shock yourself with where you pick….and work with the New Moon energy on the 7th as its perfect for new directions, new paths, new ideas etc

Go for it.

Summary:

Start of the week
if you’ve been a bit wobbly or off balance you may start to find things coming back into focus. Or if still wobbly know that balance is just around the corner.
Finding your new alignment will take a bit of time so let things settle first , get comfortable with it and then see how others things have changed.

Mid week
take some time out to rest up, to retreat just for a short while and again come back into balance. If you’ve been emotionally hurt or upset by recent events allow yourself to feel them, ask where they actually stem from and do the work to embrace it, acknowledge it and allow it to dissolve so you can move on.
Use this time for intense self -care.

End of the week
work with the new moon energy and realise the world is your oyster right now. So many possibilities stretch out in front on you in an ever expanding pattern. Of what’s presented ask what truly makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning and get going? And do that.
Above all go for it if it feels the absolute right thing for you.

*Carrying on the theme from last week these readings are about to get that but blunter – no apologies, it’s just how it’s got to be for a while.*

Mon 26th – Tue 27th: Intuition

Intuition – that gut feeling, your discernment, that sense of just knowing. Time to start listening to it folks. It won’t steer you wrong, but discounting or ignoring it can.

What have you had coming up that you’re ignoring, running from, decided you’ve just made it up, listening to others instead of yourself….time to really get down to the bare bones of this one.

Instead of sitting in your head ask what your gut response is to all this. If its positive then keep going, if its suggestion is a bit of caution then for gods sake listen to it. Take a pause or small step back and sense check whatever you’re about to do before you do it.

It’s all to easy to react to something first then mop up the aftermath later. Give yourself an easier job and LISTEN to yourself and your gut feel first. Others as with all things can have their take and opinions but they are not YOU. If they would do something differently fine – thats not the question. You have to go with what feels right.

If that means potentially upsetting the apple cart , well, you know my response to that.

Whatever glimmers of light your discernment is giving you pay attention. The more you do the more will come through. By closing it off you dim that light.

Either do whatever it is or don’t – but YOU make the choice, YOU have free will…exercise it.

Wed 28th – Thur 29th : The World

Ok – this is a pretty expansive card in truth.

Your world is what you choose to make it. Free will coming up again. And while it may be horrendous for some around you try and not take it on as yours. If your world is great right now then fab – keep going. Manifest away and keep going. We create our own realities – so choose wisely.

There is so much potential for so many things. directions, pathways if you choose to see them. Spread your wings that bit wider and start to see the bigger picture opening up in front of your eyes.

If you choose to open them that is.

Being grateful for what you have both good and crappy sends a message out there that you are open to potential, to change, to more.

If you choose to focus only on the crappy, become insular, see only the “bad” in life – that’s your free will. It’s possibly not my choice but I’m not you. People always have their reasons – it may even be something you have to work through before you start to have the balance again.

The world is your oyster and you have 2 main choices.

To focus on building a beautiful pearl from the grain of sand or the challenge that presents itself. Or you can focus on the irritation the sand becomes, how it makes you feel, and how it colours everything else around you.

The choice is 100% yours.

Fri 30th Nov – Sun 2nd Dec : Knowledge

Another harder hitting card this one to go with the rest of the spread.

Knowledge – and for me this represents knowledge of self. Of finding that connection to Source/Spirit/God…whatever word you use. Of finding that spark inside, of having a greater understanding of who you are and what makes you tick.

And for those shaking their heads saying “but I have no clue” that’s fine. I hold my hand up to this myself. We all find ourselves at that stage. The trick is to go into it deeper and realise we DO have a clue but for whatever reason we may be blocking the insight, the clarity or the knowledge that we have.

that’s ok – do the work that pops up, help things move on, do the hard going shadow work. It all plays a part. The more you do, the more you reveal. And if you don’t like something that comes up do the needful to change the damn script. This is all within you – start to set it free.

If you need help or guidance you’ll get it once you send a message to the powers that be that you are ready to take that next step. Don’t project your crap onto someone else just to avoid it or to play out a victim role that isn’t actually there, or even to manipulate others. These things ALWAYS bounce back.

Face up to your own crap and sort it. You know on a deeper level exactly what I’m saying or not saying with these words – so get to it.

Summary:

Start of the week – time to start listening to your gut on things. If you’ve been discounting your discernment and things have been going awry try a different route. Ask yourself from your gut how it feels about things and LISTEN to it instead. You may find a shift when you do.

Mid week – lets start looking at the bigger picture. Of seeing your view expanding rather than contracting. You create your own reality so take control of what you manifest. Play a starring role in your own life rather than a supporting one. rewrite the script you’ve been handed by someone else. Its theirs not yours.

End of the week – do you truly know yourself? Do you want to? Are you hiding or ignoring a part of yourself that keeps coming up? Be brave and face it head on – the more of your work you do the more you begin to understand yourself and how you tick. If you really don’t like an aspect coming up CHANGE it. You have the power to do it.
