We have some wonderful cards this week and it looks like all of the hard work you’ve all been doing is paying off. For this reading, I’m using the Psychic Tarot by John Holland, a deck that I just recently got and that I love. I first became acquainted with the deck through Allyson Roberts, a very gifted psychic and a wonderful friend. I find it to be extremely accurate and to the point, stern when necessary, yet gentle at the same time.
The beginning of our week is heralded by the Destiny card. Things are coming full circle for us and we are truly on our paths. We feel connected to ourselves and to the divine. Nevertheless, there are a few things that need to be dealt with so that we may move on fully and confidently. Our shadow selves still appear, and we need to acknowledge that the shadow is a part of us and that it helped to get us to where we are right now. That said, it is time to release all that no longer serves us so that we may step into our power. The yellow glow reminds us of the energy of our solar plexus chakra, as we move into our power with a complete and compassionate understanding of what that means for us.
As we move into mid-week, the Fulfillment of Wishes card shows us the results of releasing the emotions associated with our shadow self. As we stand between the cascades of our watery emotions, we are not engulfed by them. We are perched upon a beautiful leaf, high above the river, enjoying the products of the seeds we have planted. We are wise and enabled and our treasure chest is open to us – all we need to do is reach in and take what we want. The discernment and wisdom we have gathered along with the genuine power we now possess ensures us that we will use our treasure wisely.
That thought is further developed in our next card: Choose Wisely. We have planted many seeds and many opportunities are now available to us. This weekend marks the time when we must stop and listen to our inner guidance so that we can make the decision that is in our best interest. Things are calling to us from all directions and it may be that we have other people telling us what they think we should do. This is the moment when we must pause, and like the man on the pier, open our hands and our hearts to our higher selves. The seagulls here represent our desires – our true path – the one that calls to us.
While we are meant to enjoy all that we have worked for and attracted to us, this week is about acknowledging our hard work and commending ourselves for it, while also being aware that in order to truly enjoy it, we may still need to do a little releasing. Early in the week ask yourself: What is it that still needs to be healed? Is there anything still holding me back from expressing who I fully am? Allow these emotions to wash away from you so that you may move fully into your power. Once there, ask for guidance and use discernment to follow your heart’s desire.
