Weekly Card Reading: August 18-24, 2014 – Balance!


The King

We start this week with the powerful energy of The King. This is a time of taking stock of where you are and what needs to be done. Allow the energy of justice, fairness, and authority kick start your week for a little spring cleaning of your affairs. This is a very practical and pragmatic energy that demands that you look at your to-do list. Do you have bills that need to be paid? Are there repairs that require tending to? These debts and reparations can be either in the physical realm or the emotional/energetic. Do you owe someone gratitude or do you need to make amends for a past action that may not have been in alignment with the highest good? Taking care of business, so to speak, grounds you in the physical realm and restores clarity to your life. Once you are able to eliminate the energies of indebtedness and confusion, you are able to channel your vision more powerfully and intentionally.

The Swan

The space created through the proper usage of the king power opens the way for The Swan. This is a beautiful card that heralds the further opening of your intuition and a transformation that can create empowered and lasting change. The focus here needs to be on trust. Having faith in yourself and your gifts and allowing yourself to utilize them for your betterment creates a shift that can take you to greater depths of understanding. Honor this change in you, and know that although you may not even recognize who you now are (yes, the shift can be this profound), your soul has been yearning for this and that you are now answering this call. With trust in yourself, focus on continued alignment with your purpose through the art of listening to Spirit and cultivating the love in your heart.

The Deer

We blend the energies of the king and the swan at the end of the week through The Deer. Deer comes to tell you that you are about to embark on a new journey. She stands at the edge of the woods and she beckons you to join her. Know that the next step for your transformation comes through the acknowledgement that it is time to move forward in your new shoes so that you may be more expansive and integrate even more along your spiritual journey. The deer is intuitive and gentle but don’t let these soft energies fool you. She is powerful in her purpose and sure of her footing. Like the king, she encourages diplomacy, but one that is tempered with a feminine charge. Allow for the robustness of the king to open your week, but balance the pragmatism of the male energy with the nurturing and gentleness of the swan and the deer for optimum results. In all things, balance.  

This week’s reading is from The Wisdom of Avalon oracle cards by Colette Baron-Reid.
