Weekly Card Reading: June 30-July 6, 2014 – With Joy and Focus we Manifest our Wishes

Nine of Water

There is a lot of potential for this to be a great week if we can stay focused and out of our own way. We begin the week with the Nine of Water card. This is great! This card is also known as the “wish card.” Things are looking really good right now and that which we having been trying to manifest is finally becoming a reality. Expect this to happen soon, if it’s not already – this card usually indicates that your good fortune is at hand. With this we are feeling the effects of the positive energy: worry slides away, we are laughing more, and our love of life is at a high. It is truly a time of success, celebration, and love. We have seen manifestation cards in the last two weeks as well, so this is powerful confirmation that we are still working within these energies.

The Knight of Earth

And while it is important that we enjoy and even revel in the good feelings that we are expressing right now, we must also remain focused. Mid-week, Knight of Earth shows up to remind us to get things done. The Earth suit is concerned with manifestation and so keeping our intentions honed and doing the work to create them is necessary right now. The joy that we are feeling at the moment is a powerful ally in manifestation so put it to good use! By infusing your work with an attitude of fun along with focus, much can be accomplished.

There is a second meaning within the first two cards that I want to address as well. Some of you have been hoping for a love relationship to come into your life. Now may be the time. When it comes to love, the Nine of Water indicates that there is great opportunity around for meeting people, and in my readings, I’ve always perceived the Knight of Earth as being a sort of “Prince Charming” card. With that in mind, this is a great time to be out mingling and meeting people. If you see someone that peaks your interest at the coffee shop, go ahead and introduce yourself – you may be in for a great surprise! If you are in a relationship already, you will likely experience a deepening of your emotional bonds.

Two of Air

Around the end of the week we may start to get in our own way a bit. The Two of Air indicates that there may be something that we aren’t looking at going on around us. Denial is not a great place to be right now. Be sure to keep your eyes open and up. If there is a decision that you’ve been avoiding making, now is the time to take care of it and move forward. You have a lot of positive energy working with you and creating an energetic stalemate will only form blocks in it. The idea is to keep the good vibes moving, and in order to do that we must be honest and open with ourselves, as difficult as that may be. Remember that knowledge and awareness are power in moments like these, so recognizing where the block is forming and moving through it allows you to keep up your great momentum.

Weekly Card Reading: June 23-29, 2014 – Unleash Your Power


Diana shows up with the message to begin your week with unwavering focus and a strong sense of groundedness. When you are adequately centered and grounded, it matters not that your branches may waiver; you will continue to grow and expand with steadfastness and upward direction. Take stock of situations, noticing where your foundation is weak and what needs attention in your life, decide what to do about it, and then stick to it with a firm resolution. By focusing on the target, you are able to travel your path with clarity and tenacity. Use the masculine energies of the hunter along with the feminine energies of nature and the wild for best results. Remember that success typically is bred of balance and focus; when we combine these attributes, our aim is never beyond reach.


Mid-week is a powerhouse for you. Isis is an extremely mighty deity, and like Diana, she exhibits a balancing of both masculine and feminine energies. She goes about her activities as Divine mother with strength and a business-like attitude, and she is capable of all sorts of magic and alchemy. You too are focused and tough and it’s time to utilize your tenaciousness for your highest good. No more waiting. Life shows up for you again and again but you have to be willing to respond and move forward. Take a look at where you feel stuck. What is behind that feeling? Isis brings a message to you that the roots of your problem(s) may stem from early or past life conditions. If you feel something to be karmic, in that you are having difficulty freeing yourself from the pattern, you may need a healing session or a regression to get to the bottom of it. Maintain the focus you integrated at the beginning of the week to help you clarify your understanding of the matter so that it may be released.


Now that you have spent the first part of the week gaining clarity and focus and looking at blocks that may be holding you back, it’s time to channel your creative spark so that you may bring your idea to life. Sarasvati is the goddess of the arts, and she reminds you that the process of creation itself is divine in nature. Spirit expresses itself through you every time you create something new, and by being in a space of Divine-in-action you are able to bring your brilliant ideas to fruition. This card is also a reminder to enjoy the arts over the weekend. This may present itself as a concert, a trip to a museum, or in a personal creative endeavor. The point is to have fun and let your hair down – you’ve earned it!

Weekly Card Reading: June 16-22, 2014 – Prepare to Leap!

Clarity of Belief

You are entering a period of great potential with respect to defining what you want in your life and then going after it. This week’s reading is a variation/continuation of last week’s in which we see ourselves really making great leaps forward. We are still moving within this energy of pure potentiality and it behooves us to take full advantage of it. One highly effective way to do that is through Clarity of Belief. It is time to get even clearer with respect to what we want. This may be with respect to relationships, career, personal growth or all three. Clarity allows for us to claim and embody that which we desire, and through the gaining of it we are able to communicate clearly to Spirit what it is that we want. Without a honed vision, we send mixed messages to the field of potentiality; this leaves us with mixed results, which leads us to feeling stuck and lost. Truly defining our dreams and desires is an act of self-love of the highest order, for it shows us and the Divine that we are ready to really embrace ourselves and our lives. This leads to transformation, an increased capacity for love, and a greater feeling of connectedness to Spirit.

Spread Your Wings

The empowerment that naturally occurs as a result of this clarity creates the need for expansion. Spread Your Wings comes to tell you that you are ready. As you focus on defining who you are and what your path is, you will begin to feel uncomfortable in the position that you are currently in – in essence, you outgrow your own skin. It may or may not be a completely new path, but regardless it is an expanded path and it is unfolding before you in ways you most likely never imagined possible. It is time to open yourself completely to the new prospects that are about to present themselves to you and to embrace them fully and passionately.


The time for waiting is over! Put down the procrastination cap that you’ve been wearing: All that is needed is a leap of faith. Trust that the Divine supports you. This doesn’t mean that you should quit your job tomorrow and run away to Spain, but it does indicate that it’s time to get serious and start planning. How can you begin to align yourself with your new goals? What do you need to accomplish them? What steps can you take to move forward on this path so that when the time to jump presents itself, you are ready? Taking these steps sends the message out that you are in the process of running towards the cliff, preparing for the big jump ahead. Spirit always supports you in your heart based endeavors so let you heart lead you. This is the beginning of an entirely new or revitalized journey for you. When you take the steps to spread your wings, synchronicity begins to spark all around you. This is the Divine’s way of validating that you are on your path and providing the tools for you to take the leap in full faith.

Weekly Card Reading: June 9-15, 2014 – Wish Upon a Star!

Queen of Water

What a lovely week we have ahead! Our soul searching and the work that we have been doing to release toxic relationships and cultivate those that uplift us is paying off. We enter the week with the Queen of Water card. Our relationships are deepening and we are feeling closer and more authentically intimate with those around us. We are connecting in a heart-to-heart manner and are feeling much more intuitive and empathetic. This is a time for us to really hone in on our intuition and to honor what we are feeling, but we must also be sure to care for ourselves. As our empathy increases, we may feel more drawn to nurture others and to help them with their feelings. Remember that self-care must come first. You are of no help to others if you are coming from a place of depletion. Honor your body, honor your heart, and listen to your soul; be as or more compassionate with yourself as you are with others.

The Star

Mid-week we see The Star. This is the time to make a wish for your future! Things are looking good. You have laid the ground work and now you can make your long term plans. Archangel Jophiel is the angel of beauty, and she is coming through to remind you of the splendor and abundance that is all around you. She pours two cups of water that spring from an endless supply – know that your potential is unlimited! What is it that you dream of? Ask, believe, and you shall indeed receive. This card is also a sign that you are on track with your soul purpose. The star guides you and shows that you are in alignment with your higher purpose and the Divine. We actually have two signals this week that this is the case as the presence of Whale in the Queen of Water card also symbolizes alignment with our divine path. If for some reason you feel lost, this is the time to focus on finding your passion as the energies are in strong positioning and support for it. Take time to check in with those around you and yourself to begin the process. The Star card also signifies a time of heightened intuition – the answers you are seeking can be revealed if you create the space to meditate and reflect – approach the task with curiosity and wonder and be open to receive; your guides are eager to share with you!

Knight of Air

We finish the week with Knight of Air. We have been experiencing heightened intuition and now we have the opportunity to marry that with the intellect. Remember that it does not need to be one or the other; both can co-exist and in doing so can aid in the earthly manifestation of ideas from the higher realms. Things are entering hyper-drive, so make sure that you stay grounded (so much time in the intuitive realm and the higher chakras may have you feeling spacey so focus on connecting to the earth), and that you are prepared for a lot of rapid change. Creative solutions will be flowing to you and a sense of groundedness will allow you to put them into action quickly and effectively. The glowing light of the unicorn’s horn also feels like a star to me – your path is illuminated and you are heading in the right direction. Stay on course and enjoy the ride!

Weekly Card Reading: June 2-8, 2014 – Get Busy!

The Bee

It is time to get busy! This is a week for action and manifestation. At the beginning of the week, The Bee shows us that industry and organization will help us to get ahead. We’ve been working towards creating our dreams and we’ve reached the point where we would be better served enlisting the help of others. Bee energy is that of working towards the common good through a focused team effort. Where is it that you are feeling stuck? Take some time to sit down and evaluate your plan. Once you identify the areas that could use support, reflect on how you can find it. Perhaps you need a coach to help keep you motivated and focused. Maybe you need legal counsel. It could just be that you need a friend to bounce ideas off of. Regardless of what it looks like, enlisting this support can move you to the next level in the creative process. Bee also brings us good luck, so consider this card your personal harbinger of something great coming your way. Sweet victory is available to all those that are willing to claim it by creating it.

The Horse

The Horse comes to us mid-week with a further expression of the same message. Sometimes you need to be carried to get to the destination. Holding back and not accepting help from others at this point in time is actually detrimental to you. Examine your fears around this so that you can truly free yourself from the limitations of your ego. Horse also carries a message of freedom and choice. You always have a choice and freedom can be created by the way you opt to live your life. Right now, Spirit is asking you to step out of yourself so that you may benefit from the support that is always available to you. This is not just in the physical realm, but also in the spiritual. The Divine and your team of guides are always ready, willing and able to prop you up. Ask for help and be open to synchronicity – this is one of the ways in which they remove the obstacles that hold you back.

The Wind Faery

Remember that what we think is what we create and that everything around us is a reflection of what is going on in the mind. The Wind Faery asks you to pay special attention to your inner dialogue and to keep your thoughts clean. Are your thoughts empowering you or are they disempowering you? When you feel a thought that detracts from your highest good, shift it. Even a little awareness can go a long way in effecting change. The Wind Faery also encourages you to use your intellect. This is not the week for impulsiveness. You are taking very concrete steps in your life right now and it is a time for carefully thought out plans and visions. Your focus now need to be on getting to the proverbial drawing board so that you can make things happen. You are fully supported and good fortune is on your side!

For this week’s reading I used The Wisdom of Avalon oracle cards by Colette Baron-Reid.
