It’s been a while since I posted a weekly reading! I’ve been pretty busy at the start of each week and pretty distracted on the weekends, then my father passed away last Monday… so, I didn’t think I would be posting it again this week but I’ve been crutching on my tarot cards like crazy lately and I just felt like pulling cards to see what may be stirring in the new week.
I’m slowly getting back into blogging. Grief is a very odd thing. Anytime someone passes away I ask myself “am I doing this right?”… the first few days after my father passed away were hard. I was going through the emotions of sadness, anger, and frustration. It’s been exactly a week today of his passing and I’m at a point now where I can focus on just good memories. I cry in between the pauses of my thoughts but always try to laugh or smile. I’ve always felt that “everything is a message, everything is a sign” but it’s been even more prominent in my life as of late. So many messages and synchronicities have been coming my way, some I feel are my Dad, while some feel like they are SHE calling me.
This morning a giant Raven caught my attention on the lamp post near my house, I almost didn’t go out this morning but something told me to… the Raven was the first thing to get my attention. This is the second Raven I’ve spotted in the past few weeks, you don’t see them often in my area, just crows, dove’s, and other typical birds. The Raven always stops me in my tracks and leaves me in awe, words can’t describe what I feel when I see a Raven in person. They are breathtaking.
For this week I’m using the Next World Tarot (no surprise there) and trying a new spread that has been working really well for me lately in other readings:
START / STOP / CONTINUE
I love this simple spread, it cuts through B.S. and gets right to the point. Since I do daily tarot pulls for the day ahead every morning, I just felt like I need something else for the week ahead readings. Does that make sense? I hope you enjoy the reading and have a great week!
START // 7 of Coins
If you have been waiting for a sign to move from draft to creation, here it is! The 7 of Coins asks you to get busy this week and turn your visions into creation. Birth something from the heart this week. It’s important that you align your visions with your work, trust me, it shows! When you take your passion out of the art and work you do it reflects back to you in more ways than you would think, so take this time to realign with what you do if you feel like you have strayed.
STOP // Knight of Cups
It’s time to stop putting your heart in front of those who clearly don’t care. It’s great that you want to help everyone or be closer to others but sometimes it’s just a dead end and you need to step back. It’s hard, but it will save you a lot of heartache down the road. This card reminds me of a waiter that just keeps refilling your cup over and over again, even if you don’t want a refill. You normally just smile and say thank you with every pour, pretending you’re thirsty. This week, take your hand and cover the cup. You don’t need a refill and you don’t need to keep refilling the cups of others. Let them fill up their own damn cup for a change and focus on your own.
CONTINUE // Revolution
While more commonly known as the Tower, the message pulls through just the same. Much may be falling down in your life or around you in heaps, but it does not define you. Continue to hold on to your truths and the foundation beneath your feet, everything else can be rebuilt or replaced. It’s a tender time and a lot of us are very vulnerable. We must take care of one another! We all have our own battles and struggles but remember, we don’t have to face them alone. Your voice can still be heard so keep speaking up and shouting your truth, destruction may try to pull you down but it will never win if you remain stronger. Continue to hold one another, support one another, and raise your fist in resistance. Whatever wants to crumble, let it crumble…
