Weekly Card Reading August 26-September 1, 2013: A Week of Manifestation and Joy!

Wow! This week looks great for us. We took the time we needed last week to release and heal and it is paying off for us now. The intensities of the energies that had us feeling a little lost and confused and that perhaps had us resorting to old patterns of behavior have been processed and we have learned how to experience and synthesize our emotions in a much more authentic manner. This has created a week of truly being able to enjoy life for all of the magic that it offers us.

The spread this week indicates that we are now in a time of deepening. We start off with the Ten of Earth card, which shows us that we can experience a happy and abundant family life. This security extends into all aspects of our lives and reminds us that the more we notice the magic around us, the more we can bring it into our lives. Take time to count your blessings and to feel on a very deep level just how bountiful the Universe is – all of our needs are met, and more, if we allow them to be. The glow worms further remind us to shine our light and the number 10 tells us that we are embarking on a new cycle.

Image

As we begin to focus on the many blessings, our sense of gratitude and awe leads us into truly manifesting even more. I’m feeling that many of us are going to experience a major shift mid-week with respect to either a new job offer, a merger of some sort, or other opportunities that present themselves. The King of Earth card speaks of the Midas touch and that energy is fully coming through for me. The king cards in the Tarot accelerate the power of manifestation, and on top of that we are channeling this with glee. We are laughing and confident, proud without being smug; we are finally realizing that we deserve to receive the bounty of the Universe and we are beginning to align ourselves with it.

But wait – there’s more! Page of Water shows us that not only do we get to revel in a happy home life and financial security, but by mid-week we are going to see a shift in our relationships as well. For those of us already in a partnership, we will see it grow to a new level of intimacy. Some of us will even meet a new special someone this week. In addition to this, we will all really begin to experience ourselves on a deeper level. Prepare for a deepening of your intuition at the end of the week, but also be aware of what is going on around you. For many of us, the opportunities that come mid-week will align ourselves with our life purpose, as signified by the Whale in this picture.

This week is a time of joy! Enjoy this freedom and peace and use it to take another step or two in the direction of your dreams. This week I used the Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

Weekly Reading: August 19-25, 2013: Pause, Reflect, Release, Heal

Image

This is a week of slowing down and healing for us. As the intensities of last week’s energies propel us into a new week, we find that we need to stop and take a pause. This manifests at the beginning of the week with The Waiting Game card. Our desires indeed are growing: within the hourglass we see the roots and the fruits of our labors. We may be seemingly pacing around, but we actually see that we are within the circles and cycles of life and that we have a few things to clear up before we move full-steam ahead.

Image

We are shown what needs to be healed as we move into the middle of the week. The Heart Chakra card indicates that we need to focus on love, self-love, and boundaries. This is reinforced by the healing card that I felt drawn to pull to provide further insight. Recovery shows us that we have some sort of heart ailment that we need to focus on, and it feels that this is something that needs to be addressed before we can move forward on our paths; it is a part of the foundation that we must create. This looks different for all of us. I am feeling that for some of us this is expressed through a physical addiction that must be acknowledged and healed, while for others, it is due to co-dependency or an inability to properly care for ourselves. In order to create the life of our dreams, we have to be able to express self-love and self-care fully in order to remain strong and not deplete our resources, energy, joy, and love.

Image

Bringing these issues to light may cause confusion and may feel conflicting to us, as represented by the Mental Conflict card. As we move into the last part of the week, we must take a look at those parts of our lives that are no longer serving us. This could be present as compulsively and mindlessly eating a pint of Ben and Jerry’s in front of the television, excessive amounts of caffeine or alcohol, or even a friendship that drains us to the point of illness. Take a few moments to reflect on what things are creating disharmony in your life so that you can acknowledge, accept, and release them. Respect yourself through this process, and stay within the integrity of your heart chakra.

The blessing of our bodies is that they always tell us how something feels to us. The hurdle that most of us face is being open to receiving that information and using it, instead of numbing ourselves to it. As you reflect on that which you think may be blocking you from fully expressing your true self, notice how it feels in your chest. Do you feel constriction or fear? Where does that come from? Do you feel relief? Why?

This week is about taking a huge step towards clarity of mind and heart so that we can more fully embrace the abundance and prosperity that we are on the road to achieving. Use the intense energies that are bringing so much to the surface right now as a tool and a guide to step out of your pain and into the light.

For this reading I used the Psychic Tarot by John Holland for the main reading. The Recovery card comes from Doreen Virtue’s Archangel Raphael’s Healing Oracle Deck.

Weekly Card Reading August 12 – August 18, 2013: Connect for Clarity and Action

Image

The energies are intense right now as we enter a new week. Many of us are reporting downloads and shifts in consciousness as we become ever more sensitive to our connection with our higher selves and Spirit. The intensity of this energy, which can be felt in any number of ways from feeling high to bursting into tears as you reach a new layer of trust and intimacy within yourself, shows up in the first card for this week, the Queen of Water. Here we see the heavens swirling around us as we connect with both the intuition of both the heavens and water. As we bridge the realms of these two worlds, we open to trusting our intuition and in turn, trusting ourselves more. This means that you will begin to know yourself on a deeper level and will be able to truly sense and feel the wisdom and guidance of your higher connection.

Image

The outcome of this will be the gift of new insights and ideas, as shown to us by the Ace of Air. We have seen this unfolding over the last several weeks as we’ve begun to shift our fears to allow our true beauty and power to shine through around the middle of the week. Now that we have cut away some of the layers that kept us disconnected from our brilliance, we have created space for inspiration. With these ideas comes the gift of flight, and you are about to take off! The ace lets us know that this is the beginning of a journey for you, and the spread wings of the unicorn show us that you are ready for it.

Image

As we move into the weekend, the need to shift from our intuitive frame of mind to a more practical one surfaces. King of Fire reminds us that it is time to focus! Without this clarity of our vision, our insights can never successfully manifest. It is time to use the king and fire energies to bring our ideas to life. Part of this focus relates to our being able to communicate that which we want to birth. Find ways now to put your dreams and inspirations into words and pictures so that Spirit can begin to help you. Journaling, writing a business plan, or putting together a vision board can help you to express your dreams and manifest your desires.

This reading is from the beautiful Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

Weekly Card Reading: August 5-11, 2013: Stand Firmly and Carry On…

Image

Congratulations! You are back on track. This week starts with the Nine of Fire, one of my favorite cards in the Angel Tarot. This card is all about standing in your power and protecting what you have. After last week, when we were given options with respect to our behavior and possible outcomes, we have made our choices and now it’s up to us to claim them and the power that derives from that. Now that we have put our fears to rest, or at least brushed them out of the way, we are ready to act and no one can stand in our way. Use this fire energy at the beginning of the week to start on the projects that you’ve been putting off due to uncertainty and confusion and put your first foot forward. Know that you may have to defend your actions, but that this new found conviction that you have is going to bring your dreams to life.

Image

The middle of the week shows us just that. The Nine of Water reminds you that your wishes do come true! Now that you have invited more clarity into your life and cleared away some of the fear and doubt that nagged at you last week, you will start to see the fruits of your labor and your love come to life. We move into the realm of intuition and emotions, which will have a calming effect on the fiery action of the early week, and we will begin to slow down a bit and reflect. We see that our cups are full and we are receiving many blessings. Now we must listen to our intuition: What do we want from this? How shall we carry forward on our path? Once again, we need to clarify and define, hone our thoughts and our insights. We firmly committed to ourselves early in the week and now it’s time to decide how we want to carry forth. Use your intuitive mind to check in with yourself. Our concerns fade away as we begin to feel secure with ourselves and our goals. The two nines in this week’s reading are confirmation that we are at the end of a cycle and that it is time to move forward. Remember that maintaining a joyful attitude and playing is essential to your overall success. Enjoy this time!

By the end of the week, you’ve put some thought into your project or your goals and now you are ready to take the next step. The King of Air here is about presenting what we have created to the world. Until now, we’ve been holding back, and now is the time to completely let go, once and for all, and carry our ideas and projects/path to the world. We have gathered some forces and we are ready to ride! Use the King energy to help you manifest and remain confident in your decision, as this self-assurance brings you light and support. You may need to seek professional advice so that you may advance any further, but you are ready. The time to hesitate is over!

This week I used the Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine. It is a gentle deck with powerful artwork and messages. The angels love working with these cards!
