Weekly Card Reading: April 14-20, 2014 – Embrace the Energies of the Full Moon

This week’s reading couldn’t be any more appropriate considering what is going on in the heavens in the upcoming days, as full moons and lunar eclipses highlight internal cleansing and releasing along with introspection and connection with Spirit. Luckily for us we have a full moon lunar eclipse occurring on the 14th/15th, so it is the perfect time to go within and leave behind all that no longer serves us.

Listening

We start the week with the Listening card. If prayer is talking to the Divine, then meditation is listening. Now is the perfect time to check in with yourself. Ask your higher self and Spirit what and who you need to release so that you may express yourself to the fullest of your potential. For many of us, it’s a time to finally leave behind behaviors, patterns, and limiting beliefs that hold us back. Listen from your heart and you will be sure to hear the message correctly. In addition to meditation, look for messages and signs around you that can add further insight into your queries. The Divine will speak to us in any way that we are willing to receive, and many times that is through another person, a piece of music, a picture, or the owl that is hooting outside your window. Remember to ask for the message and then be open to it.

Cleaning House

Release with the full moon by Cleaning House. The energies of 2014 have been prompting us to let go of old stuff and we have been doing a lot of work in this respect. As we become more in alignment with ourselves, we continue to shift and grow. Now is the time to hand over all that currently doesn’t support your highest good. A full moon ceremony is a perfect way to do this, but you can do it casually even – it’s the intention and the alignment with it more than anything else that carries the weight in this exercise. Write down all that you wish to release and then symbolically dispose of it by either carefully burning the paper or ripping it up. Create a prayer to accompany it so that the energy of the items will be carried away by the winds. What you clear now will allow you the space to invite in what you truly desire. As with any intention, you must be ready to align to it with integrity, so after you let go of the past and your baggage, be willing to stay disconnected from it. When you feel the pull to cling, remind yourself that the weight of the past will only deter you from moving towards the fulfillment of your dreams.

Moonlight

The energy of the full moon will stay with us for several days following the actual date of it. Now that you are a clear and open vessel, the Moonlight card asks you to connect more fully with your intuition. As you consider where you are heading, trust the answers that come to you. Your hunches are spot on right now, so believe in yourself, your insights, and the direction that Spirit is leading you. Get clear, and let her know exactly what your intention is so that she may guide you in the right direction. As stated above, remember that the Divine speaks to us in many ways. Keep an open mind and heart, use discernment, and open to your higher truth.

This week’s reading is from The Enchanted Map oracle card deck by Colette Baron-Reid.

Weekly Card Reading: March 17-23, 2014 – Good Things are Brewing!

Coming to Life

Things are stirring this week and a lot of stuff is being shaken up! We begin with the Coming to Life card. I feel this to be an awakening of sorts for most of us. We have shed another layer of skin and we are now emerging and we are more beautiful than ever! We are manifesting projects and birthing ideas and in general living more in alignment with ourselves and our higher purpose. Butterfly shows us the transformation that is occurring as we step out of our human cocoon full of grace and poise. We are holding a ball of light that will illuminate our way. We do not need to rush or force this process; this is a time of trust in Spirit that things are unfolding according to divine timing. Allow for the process by surrendering into it and trusting that we will be led where we are supposed to go.

Storm Fields

We must allow this faith to carry us through this time as indicated by the Storm Fields card. Things may be rough in the middle of the week as this process unfolds, but know that the storm is coming to clear the way – and the energy – for you so that you may move forward with a clean slate. The block that has been holding you and/or your projects back is about to erupt and then dissipate. Remember that the storm always cleanses the earth and allows for the seeds to spread and grow. This action will help to further bring your goals and dreams into the world.

Moonlight

With so much going on this week, you may feel tempted to second guess yourself. Moonlight calls to you to trust your intuition and to go within for the answers. When we suspend our need to control the outcome or the way the process looks and allow for the Divine to guide us instead, we open up to limitless possibility. The presence of Owl reminds us to be discerning and to allow our inner wisdom to illuminate the way. Your life is shifting and you are experiencing a lot of transformation and growth. Understanding that much will change around you as this occurs can allow you to feel more empowered in the process. Remember to step back, pause, reflect, and breathe! This is when the voice of Spirit can most easily reach you.

This week I used The Enchanted Map oracle cards by Colette Baron-Reid.
