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.

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.

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.
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

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 ?


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.

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.

Quite a heavy hitting reading for this week so for some it may be time for some tough love, buckle up.

Mon 4th – Tue 5th : Never Jam Today

For the start of the week are you sick of hearing empty promises, stuck living in the past/future or feeling a sense of lack?
This card is about manipulation – at small levels but also bigger ones too. We all have some version of it trying or attempting to play out. Will you let it or will you stand in your truth and say “no thank you”, and mean it?
We constantly have people trying to sell us empty promises but when you have the ability to see through them, or we simply don’t want what they are selling it’s easier to walk away and not fall for the tricks.
If you have fallen into them worry not , you can get yourself back out of them. Go back to your own inner truth and ask does this align or feel right for you. If it doesn’t then step back, step away or say thanks but no thanks. Be true to yourself rather than smoke and mirrors.
Look a little deeper , if they feel like nonsense, leave a strange taste in your mouth or just feel “off” then you can say no.
And remember the word no is a sentence all of it’s own which does not need to be explained or pulled apart.
Stand firm folks.

Wed 6th – Thur 7th : The golden Phoenix

Very much in keeping – as we had the card a couple of weeks back. We are in a period of 6 (I’ll need to check that) planets in retrograde. And while that can freak some people out I see it as an opportunity to sense check things. All the things.
So if you have a situation, people or energies playing out AGAIN that you though you were dealt with. Take the opportunity to sense check. How have you reacted to them? Is it old learned habits or have you shrugged it off and moved on?
They can be a test to check you really HAVE dealt with things and not just applied a concealer to it.
It could be an aspect that had been hidden till now that you CAN deal with after time has elapsed. Or your energy has shifted to a place where the automatic response no longer triggers.
Whatever it is let it come up and observe first before acting/reacting/taking action.

Fri 8th – Sun 10th : Have courage

Spotting a theme this week? I get a strong, very strong, self empowerment feel with these cards. Added with the abundance of red and orange also a strong grounded/anchored feel. Being present and aware of what is going on around you.
And when presented with a challenge or a change you can have the ability to see it from different views when you remain in the present.
Change can be a not-so-nice feeling especially when it feels forced or out of your hands.
Realise that there ARE things outside of your control. Instead focus on what is inside your control. That is the first step at taking responsibility of yourself, rather than projecting or blaming on external situations or other people.
Be brave, be yourself and stand in your own integrity. Live past the fear – particularly if it is not yours in the first instance. Fear can blind us to all else, and cause stagnation by never moving.
Change is constant – never forget that.
You have courage it may be a bit suppressed but it is there. Coax it out of it’s slumber.
You may be given a way-shower to guide you in this if needed. Or you may be a way-shower for someone else.

Overview for the full week : Rejuvenation

extra card for 4th to 10th October 2021
While it’s quite a powerful week don’t forget to look after yourself. It can be very easy to over-do things and get burned out.
Take time if you need it. Give yourself space if it will help you find your balance once more.
Things can be overwhelming so look at what you are feeding. Or where you are placing your attention. Is it helpful or harmful? Can taking a step away for a while help your energy, emotional wellbeing or physical self?
Self care is very much something to take seriously as without it we can become a shell of ourself.
Do what is right for you – be it switching off social media, taking some time away from the friend/colleague draining your energy, getting outside. Whatever it is that re-charges your battery make it a priority.

Mon 20th – Tue 21st : Hope

Quite an apt card all round. For those who feel helpless or hopeless and for those who want to create something different or new.
Keep hope alive within you. See it as a spark that shows up on the darkest of days. That can be used to kindle your fire and creativity when it’s most needed.
We live is a very topsy turvy world right now and for many it can be very difficult to see a clear way through. Hold strong to your hopes for now and the future. Put things in motion to bring them into being.
If you don’t like whats going on around you right now what can you do to change things. Think way, way, outside the box if you have to. But trust in yourself, your vision and your hope (or faith is that resonates more).
All is not lost and while the things that you cannot control play out around you it’s up to you where you place your attention, your focus and your energy.
Choose wisely and choose from the heart.
Not from fear.
For those who have a clear view and are setting things in motion, have endless compassion for those around you. Even if you don’t agree with them or don’t have the same perspective. Remember all experiences ARE valid.
Be a way-shower and strip away any pretence. Keep walking your talk. And if you haven’t started now is as good a time as any.
Guide by example.

Wed 22nd – Thur 23rd: The lovers at the feast

Now this card falls over Autumn (Northern hemisphere) or Spring (Southern hemisphere) equinox…..and I believe a full moon. This for me is a point of reflection.
Where I am it’s Autumnal equinox and the bounty of the harvest. This card is specifically looking at what you feed yourself.
Are you aware of what you ingest/take in across all levels? Be it food, information, ideas and more.
Do you take stock and sense check that it is the correct thing for you? The old adage of “rubbish in, rubbish out” is one to look at.
In terms of the food you eat are you paying attention to what your body wants? Are you eating what will fuel you or what will cause you stagnation or inflammation? Really look at it.
Food can heal but it can also harm if taken in excess, abused, overly processed and more. If not sure where to start you can try a food diary. Simply noting down what you ingest in a day. Can you spot a pattern happening. Are there areas you can work on or improve?
With this equinox you can set an intent to look at your fuel (not just food) and assess your needs. Making changes as needed. You 100% have free will – do what is right but if you have been silencing or over-ruling your body you may have to re-asses at a later stage. As it may come back to bite you.
Work with the seasons, observe natural time and where possible let Gaia guide you.

Fri 24th – Sun 26th : Becoming Braver

This card is all about growth. Of having the ability and courage to change your mind or your view based on new experience or information.
To realise all that you have worked through, all the challenges and trials and you are still here. Taking what you have learned and experienced and growing from them.
It can be a knock to your confidence when working through challenges and obstacles. They can at times feel never ending. But you have shown resilience and strength.
Pull from this as you progress. Know you can (and already have) weathered some of the worst storms possible and come out the other side.
Take a moment to look how far you have come despite having been pushed to your very limit. And have the strength to keep questioning, to challenge and to investigate when something feels a bit off.
Continue to be brave.

Extra for the full week : The golden phoenix

extra card for the week 20th to 26th September 2021

A quick heads up that you may find a few things with the potential to flare back up. Mainly things you have presumed were done and dusted.
It may be that an aspect of it was hidden and can now be dealt with. Or it’s simply an echo or test to see if you change your automatic reaction.
Whatever it is let it come up. The phoenix cycle for me is about the end of one thing and the start of something new. Work with it.
You are more than capable of dealing with it. Whatever it is.
If this is something at a global level (and lets face it that seems to be a daily occurrence) KNOW you are far from alone. Many others see and feel what you do. You may even find yourself in touch with them in some way. Embrace the feeling and reality of community and connection.
For some others it may be something coming back in as it’s NOW the right time. If it feels right then carry on, if it feels off a bit then wait , assess and look before you jump in feet first.

Mon 6th – Tue 7th: Threshold

Now I find this an interesting card to show up here as it falls over New Moon. In the uk where I am it’s exact at 1:51am on Tuesday.
And for me new moon is the perfect time for clearing away what no longer resonates, what has past its’s best or what is ready to move on. Making space for the new.
However you can feel anxious or wobbly when you get close to a transition from the old to the new. And you may not even be aware of what the change is – only that you can feel something coming.
If you are able to let the butterflies that you can feel in your stomach be released they may lead you somewhere that makes more sense. Trust and let them out.
If you get stuck be thankful for all that has brought you to this point. See the value in it all – the good, the not so good and the downright ugly. They all served their parts. That thankfulness and gratitude may help to shift the vibration that you can take a step into the new.

Wed 8th – Thur 9th: Painting the roses red

Ok this one I nearly put back into the deck but lets stick with it. This is a reference in the story to the white roses being painted red to cover up the “wrong” ones had been planted by mistake.
We have all been there when we’ve made a mistake we try to cover up, hide, blame someone else or run away from. And often times the guilt and worry it causes massively exceeds what would have happened if we’d said at the time.
What are you attempting to cover up/conceal right now? Is it something that actually would be better dealt with head on? Can it be fixed?
Only you can answer that.
it may even be something that happened in your past is being flushed up to the surface. You have a choice to either stuff it back down again or deal wit it. The latter is you taking responsibility for yourself. the former, well it will come back again so be aware of that.
If you are aware of others trying to erase their mistakes cut them some slack. Unless you have been in their position you can’t know how they feel, or what the fear will happen. Support where you can.
Another thread to this one is if you are around someone who kicks off for the even the smallest of things not being “right” – be it in a work, family or relationship environment. You way wish to question if this is right for you anymore.
And at a global level – well.
Lets just say plenty is being brought to light on a daily basis. You have to use your own discernment as to which resonate for you and what you can do about it at a personal or collective level.
The truth will out.

Fri 10th – Sun 12th : Phrenology – Certainty

Carrying on the theme it’s time to shut down the distractions and internal dialogue.
If (and I include myself in this one) you find yourself aimlessly scrolling on social media without really connecting again and again and again – what are you distracting yourself from? Who’s voice are you allowing in your head rather than your own.
It’s time to dial it back and reconnect with yourself again.
To hear your own voice, your own guidance and detox from all the bs and projections you may be picking up along the way and claiming as yours.
Instead dig a bit deeper.
Use that brain of yours. Give it something to do for a change.
Be old fashioned and investigate things before you commit to them. The long forgotten (well it seems that way) skills of logic and common sense can give you the stability you need right now. So use them.
You may shock yourself and those around you but by god you’ll be in a place where you know what you are talking about.
If you need expert advice you’ll find it.
Use your head.

Extra for the week – The Time Guardian

extra card for the week 6th to 12th September 2021

This card popped up not too many weeks back. But many (myself especially) need a reminder that you can make time. Rather than stressing about all the things you need to do try prioritising them instead.
What NEEDS to be done right now?
Are there tasks/things can wait a little longer?
What isn’t actually time dependant and can be done later?
It starts to calm down and not pile on top of you all at once when you can put it into context.
If you have the urge to do all the things at the same time – question why this is. Who’s driving that urge. If it’s not you then who’s expectations are you feeling? And why are you letting them?
Make sure and take time for yourself. It’s all too easy to forget to prioritise ourselves. Take a walk to clear your head, take a cuppa outside, watch the sunset or sunrise, listen to the birds. that moment you take for yourself may be the most beneficial of your day.

I’m going to keep my translation short and sweet this week – not my typical ramblings *wry smile*

Mon 16th – Tue 17th : Mermaid in a koi pond

A card that pops up semi-regularly on these readings. And it’s a nod to a few that it’s time to step back into being YOU.
It may be that over time you have taken on others ideas, beliefs and truths as your own. And it has dulled your own energy. To the point you may feel tired, fed up or even thinking “what’s the point”.
It’s time to strip out others energies and rediscover who you ACTUALLY are, not who you think you are or who you’ve been told you are. But the person you are at the core of your being.
Your energy has outgrown the space you’ve placed it in. It may be time to dissolve that box and find fresh energy, direction or pathways.
To transition from the Koi into the Dragon.
Essentially to be YOU and embrace the shift.
Take some time to clear out and dig deep within to find that buried treasure that is YOU

Wed 18th – Thur 19th : Fire – Spontaneity

I laughed when this card popped out as I did something very off the cuff this week and the fruits of this will be on Thursday – it all ties in.
While we still have some very heavy arse energies kicking about this week there is still an opportunity to grab hold of the creativity that fire energy can gift us.
It can take a set of balls though, or even a “sod it” moment.
This is about being you, saying “stuff the shackles!!”, speaking up or doing something just a bit different. Or something that pushes your safety zone a little bit.
Now I wouldn’t suggest HUGE changes this week – not in these energies. But smaller things are very much possible – IF THEY FEEL RIGHT. Or even setting a ball rolling for when the energies are more settled for you.
Use your discernment and do what feels right for you.
Not what others tell you is right for you. As let’s face it unless they are in your exact shoes, with the exact same set of circumstances, they haven’t a clue.
And vice versa.
If you aren’t in the others persons shoes what exactly are you trying to project?
We want to harness the creativity that fire can bring, not the destruction.

Fri 20th – Sun 22nd : Wake up!

Fab card this one and jam packed with colour and life. Which is kind of the point.
It’s time to be very much present in your own body and in your own life. Take control of your own destiny and path. Realise the decisions you make are YOURS to make. Even if they feel the “wrong” ones later take responsibility for the decision.
You can interpret the message that’s on the card in any way which resonates for you. And honestly I would prefer that you do 
But for me this is about authenticity, integrity and being yourself. And if you aren’t it might be time to question the reason(s) for this. What can you change that makes the task of being yourself a little easier?
Baby steps are STILL forward motion.
Take notice of what is happen to and around you and take pleasure in what you can see. The sheer number of flowers on the card suggests this time is a gift.

extra card for the week

Extra for the week : Confidence

Love this. As you can see I’m picking up the possibilities of a very empowering week, but it’s your choice and free will if you see/feel the same.
The possibility is very much there. Even through the heavy energies and perceived chaos/distraction.
Have faith in your own abilities, decisions and choices. It’s time to have confidence in yourself.
You are (more than) enough and when you start to believe it and feel it, change happens.


Over to you this week. See what pops up direct when you look at each card in sequence. I have faith you can read them just as well as anyone else can
