Weekly Reading Nov 13 – 19

Does November feel like it’s going really fast? I feel like the last part of this year is just flying by! This week I’m using the Bonefire Tarot since I just can’t get enough of this deck – I love it!¬†Let’s shuffle and take a look at the energies at play this week, shall we?

Alrighty then, what “fun” cards this week! ūüėā¬†After I pulled the three for the week, I was drawn to taking a peek at the bottom of the deck to see if there was any hidden advice or insight for us, I’m glad I did! the 2 of Coins was hiding and I’ll be talking about how this incorporates into our week!

Beginning of the week // 8 of Cups

We are kicking off the week working with the energy of the 8 of Cups. Any time this card shows up for me, it reminds me of embarking on a journey. Not a huge, life changing journey like the Fool, but more of a “lets see what else is out there” type of feel. We have a stack of 8 cups but one is missing, let’s go find it! What we are currently doing right now may not be working out the way we had hoped it would, so we may be called to move on and leave something behind. Something clearly isn’t working and we can feel it! We need to let it go and find what will work and put our energy towards that!

Middle of the week // 5 of Coins

After leaving the 8 of Cups, we are moving into a feeling of isolation or even a “I’ve been here before” type of energy. When I look at this card in the deck, I don’t get a the typical feeling like I do in say, the RWS – which is normally a feeling of scarcity or poverty… I get a more “solo” feel and a 5 of Cups vibe, it shows we may be feeling a bit sorry for ourselves… perhaps we’re even having buyers remorse! The girl in the card can easily go inside but it seems she has chosen to withdraw herself and stay outside in the snow – the door’s open, so it’s not like she is being locked out of the house or something, I get the feeling that this card suggests that we may be really hard on ourselves, don’t be! We all make mistakes… and mistakes can be fixed.

Before this card was the 8 of Cups and it shows someone moving on… now we find ourselves here, a place that I feel we may sense as very familiar. Trust me when I say that we are growing, despite feeling like we have set ourselves back. We may be in a place that feels very familiar, but we have changed and are not the same person we were when in this position before. Try to use this time to figure things out, journal, and even replay some past events in your mind to see if you may have missed something. There is a lesson hidden in this card for you to figure out!

End of the week // The Tower

Just like that, the Tower makes an appearance to end our week. After some much needed transitions and then feeling like we’ve hit a wall, we are greeted with the Tower. I like to think of the Tower this week as cleaning up some things that we really don’t want to face. It’s a huge broom coming for us and cleaning shit up! It may not be fun, it may be a bit messy, but it will be necessary and you will thank it later. No one really loves to see the Tower show up, especially when it’s on a weekend, right?! Hold on tight and enjoy the ride!

Going with the 2 of Coins that was on the bottom of the deck, this will be our crutch this week – our medicine, our advice to keep us on our feet so that we don’t get swept up when the Tower comes to town! This card urges us to keep in check with how we balance out our life this week. It could be a juggle that is difficult but it’s something we can all handle, despite you having some doubt. We can dwell on any bumps we feel this week or we can learn from them! Keep your priorities in check and don’t weigh yourself down too much in one area of your life – like too much work or too much play. Take on only what you can chew and spit out the rest!

Weekly Reading Nov 6 – 12

New week, new cards! This week I’m using the Light Grey Tarot, it’s one of my very first decks that got me started with tarot! Last night I spent some time with this deck and put the cards back in original order so I could go through the deck with fresh eyes. I’ve had this deck for about 5 years and it has taken quite a beating over the years but still reads well for me and I love it.

I mentioned last week that I would be switching up the weekly reading a bit (again) and I am doing just that. I’m reverting back to my older spread for the weekly reading. A 3-card: beginning, middle, and end. I pulled an extra card from the Vicky Filiault Tarot for our theme or lesson this week!

Bring on the new week!


Lesson this week // Empress

Our lesson and theme for the week is coming from the Empress. This is an energy that’s all about natural rhythms and flow, allowing things to come to fruition on their own terms under the caring wing of the Empress. Often times for me, the Empress represents a time to focus on self care. Other times, she reminds me to take delicate care of what I hold dear to me and give it the best possible start it can… much like a child, we want the best for our children so we strive to get them on the right foot. Add that tender touch to what you are working on this week.

Beginning of the week // 2 of Cups

Starting our week we are greeted with the 2 of Cups. This is often dubbed as a card pertaining to partnerships, devoted friendships, and intimate connections. We are being asked to be kind in the relationships we have towards others right now, especially towards those who are closest to us. It’s much easier that we get along with others in order to get things done with less stress. This isn’t a time for arguing or competition here, no one wants to kick off a new week like that, right? Harmony, people! Work in harmony with one another, it’ll only help set the mood for the week with a good start.

Middle of the week // The Chariot

By midweek, we may see a big boost in our day, a little zest in our step. I’ll take an extra shot of espresso, please! Use this energy to the fullest to carry you through till Friday and beyond into the weekend! Remember this, whatever lands in your lap this week is handed to you for a reason, despite if you think that you can’t handle it… the Chariot knows you can! It’s all about taking a deep breath and putting on your game face to move forward in confidence and trust. Whatever you do, do it knowing that you’re awesome and capable of anything!

End of the week // 7 of Cups

Whenever I see this card show up, I ask myself this: Am I focusing on what I need or what I want? It’s all about priorities and being responsible in what we choose to do. Often times something sounds too good to be true, and guess what? Chances are it¬†is to good to be true. Things will taunt us and pull us in all kinds of directions, it’s up to you to stay focused and on track. By the end of the week, be sure you stay on track with what you truly desire and don’t let all that is “shiny and new” sway you otherwise!

Stay tuned on Friday! I’ll be testing out a “pick your card” for some weekend guidance!

Weekly Reading Oct 30 – Nov 5

New week, new cards! I’m shaking things up a little this week for the weekly reading, again. I’m really trying to find a layout that I like that really hits the points I want to focus on for the week. This week I’m looking at the energy/theme, action to take, possible struggle, and advice for the week.

The decks being use this week are Cosmos Tarot and Oracle (just the Major Arcana) and Spirit Speak tarot.

Theme this week // The Star

I’ll admit, I was pretty happy to see this gem of a card show up. The Star card has been following me around since early last week when I started working on some art therapy and birthed the beginning of my second oracle deck… the Gemini Deck! For me, this card means… create… inspire… send out my wishes and hopes into the stars. Not to mention, this specific card is assigned a constellation… Gemini! Coincidence? I think not!

This card is for you this week! Keep your dreams and goals alive and don’t lose hope, don’t feel forgotten, and don’t feel left out. The Universe is listening and wants you to have patience, it’s working some magic so don’t let your dream fizzle out. So often we don’t think we are moving forward and instead we are moving backwards… it’s not true. Our life is a spiral, we may reach a place where we have been before but we are indeed a little different. We have learned some new skills and have grown in some way. Life is a lot like the Wheel of Fortune… sometimes we are on top, sometimes we are on the bottom. Either way, our turn will come up again and again, we just need patience!

Action to take // 5 of Wands

Persistence is key! While this card is often seen as a moment of conflict…. I see practice and finding beauty within the chaos. Try to look past the ugliness popping up in your week, look for the hidden gems under the dust. With practice and persistence, you will make it through the week just fine. Just like the person in this card, they are annoyed but I can see the determination in their face, they are trying hard to not crack a smile. This reminds me that sometimes in life, we need to laugh! We need to laugh at what is going on and sometimes at ourselves. Meet chaos at the door and smile.

Possible struggle // The Tower

Ouch! Thanks tarot! The Tower may shake up your week and shake it up good! Instead of seeing this as a struggle, why not work with this blasted energy?! Use the energy of the Tower to your advantage and allow it to “clean house”. Release what you want to release, for everything else… hold on¬†tight! If things do get pulled from under your feet, dust yourself off and get back to the grind. Don’t let the Tower win and pull you down with it… whatever the Tower tears down, take it as a sign that it wasn’t serving you anymore anyways. Poof, it’s gone!¬†

Advice this week // 8 of Cups

The 8 of Cups is urging you to withdraw yourself from any situation that does not align up with you on an emotional level… it’s all about leading with your heart and moving yourself to a place that fills you up the most. In this card, we see someone leaving the cups behind and moving to where the cactus stands. They are leaving behind what didn’t serve them in search of what will. I always call this the “grass is always greener” card… this time, it’s about seeking out something more. Something that you know will better suit you.

I’m feeling this card big time and it’s only Monday! This morning I woke up and decided that I’m tired of the “same shit, different day” attitude… so, I’m changing it. I’m creating a new routine for myself, moving out of the rut I’ve been in. I’m always dreaming about the future, catching myself saying “… in a couple years I can do (this or that)”. Something has to change. I need to live in the NOW and focus on the PRESENT. So the 8 of Cups for me is about shaking things up and creating my own vision to enjoy NOW! I’ve already started by changing up my environment in the house. I started to purge, deep clean, and move around the furniture so that I feel a better flow and comfort in my house.

I hope you all have a great week!

Weekly Reading Oct 23 – 29

As you may have noticed, I didn’t post the weekly reading last week. I just really wasn’t feeling it and decided to just take a break from the weekly reading… but I’m back this week for with our cards for the new week!

This week I was drawn to use the Rider Waite Smith tarot deck, a nice classic. I’ve been resorting back to traditional decks more and more lately. We went out of town on Friday to Saturday for our 10 year anniversary and I brought my RWS deck with me. It just felt really good, like an old friend. I go on kicks where I love to use one deck for a few weeks, then switch it up and use another.

Along with the RWS tarot, I’m using a card from Creatures of the Moon Oracle as “our theme” this week.

In a hurry? This week is all about growth and allowing ourselves to shed some skin! Don’t hold yourself back by putting on blinders, but go with the flow. Also, it’s ok to set some boundaries this week as we allow ourselves to transition into new waters this week!

Theme this Week | Metamorphosis

Ch-ch-changes! We are going through some big changes in our life this week. Some not as big as others, but I feel it! Since getting back home from our mini vacation I have felt some shifts going on. One thing I found interesting is that this card is associated with the New Moon! The New Moon that was with us last week was a pretty heavy one, I could feel the weight of it and I’ve heard from some others that it really lingered in the air. This week, we are being asked to bring our attention to transitions and new growth – this is New Moon magic still in play right now, so take advantage of it big time!

Where will this change take place in our life? No idea, only you can answer that one. I know for me, I’ve been feeling some shifts going on and to be honest, I can’t quite put my finger on it. I’m just opening myself up to the Universe and allowing things to flow naturally. I would say doing just this would be good medicine for anyone!

Actions to take | 8 of Swords + 7 of Wands

Going along with our theme of the week, Metamorphosis, we are greeted with some actions to take. The first action is coming from the 8 of Swords… take off the blind fold and look around! You can’t hide right now. I know changes and growth can be a bit intimidating and scary since we are moving into unknown territory, but trust in the process by letting go and give into the changes going on. Mental blockages will only hinder our growth going on right now. If you put yourself in a cage, you will outgrow the cage and become¬†very uncomfortable. It’s much easier to open yourself up to¬†yourself when things like this happen, and to give yourself some space.

Another action to take this week is coming from the 7 of Wands… keep going, don’t back down! Take a stand for yourself this week and don’t back down to anyone. You are in charge this week so go full force! This card makes me think about creating boundaries and some temporary walls to put up – not ones to keep you in. We don’t have to close ourself off like in the 8 of Swords, but just a wall to keep others from bothering you. While going through growth and transitions, I always like to keep my distance from others… not because I don’t want to be around others, but I just want space to think.

Don’t hold yourself back. Instead, fight back!

Possible struggle this week | 3 0f Coins

I mentioned above that creating some boundaries this week is a good idea. Going along with the 3 of Coins, putting up this “wall” could be the very thing that may help us this week… keeping others at a distance. The 3 of Coins suggests that we may struggle with participating as a group, it’s all about going solo or stick with more intimate, smaller groups this week. If you must mingle with a larger group or social circle, just play it cool and stay relaxed.

Don’t stress if you are finding yourself frustrated when working with others, just find a way to collaborate that doesn’t involve you wanting to pull your hair out! It’s ok to be the note taker or the listener in the group in order to keep your own sanity, I do it often! Find a way to make things work that aligns with your intentions this week.

Weekly Reading Oct 9 – 15

It seems like October is flying by, at least for me. Not sure I like that, October is one of my favorite months but I’m glad our hot heat is slowly going away, we only hit the 100’s a few times last week and I think we are out of the 100’s now for good till next summer –¬†yay! I’m really crossing my fingers for some deck mail this week, I have two decks on order and one shipped yesterday but I doubt it will arrive this week since it’s coming from Canada… but every time I have something coming from Canada it arrives in like 3-4 days, it shocks me every time! Sadly, there is no tracking to follow so I’ll be living on the edge of my seat all week asking myself “is it here today?!” lol!

Since I loved how the reading flowed last week on the weekly reading, I decided to use the same “spread” again for this week. I wish everyone a fantastic week ahead, enjoy!

Decks Used: The Portland Tarot + Spirit Speak

In a hurry? This week is all about getting things done, one thing at a time, to give us a sense of accomplishment! Beware of any compulsions forming, this can happen when we fix ourselves too tightly to a goal or focus.

Energy present this week | Judgement

Love the energy in this card, we have a runner who just crossed the finish line in a race and they are proud! I did my first half marathon race in January this year so I can really relate to the energy of the woman in this card. It’s all about proving to yourself that you can do it! You can overcome and do it if you believe in yourself and trust yourself. The energy of the week is surrounded by believing in what you are truly capable of, be honest and open to your higher self. Take charge and get things done!

Actions to take | 8 of Coins + Ace of Coins

The hard work and dedication you put in this week will be rewarding, you get out what you put in so make it count! Set your goals high and keep them present this week. Try to focus on one thing at a time, even the smallest task will feel like a huge accomplishment! Over the weekend I tackled the dishes that were haunting me… after they were done, I felt like Wonder Woman lol! So really, the smallest things can lead to the biggest results.

Keep an eye out for any unique opportunities, something may present itself to you or will lead you into something that will. Again though, keep your focus centered on one thing at a time, don’t crowd yourself this week. Looking at this Ace of Coins, I would start at what is highest on your list, something that will make the most impact on your week ahead. It’s all about making it easier on yourself, so “eat the toad” (meaning, do the task you don’t want to do first to get it out of the way).

Possible struggle this week | King of Wands

When we are so fixated on a goal, reward, or even just something that is in our radar, we can be consumed by it. We hold this so high up in the air that it becomes an infatuation, not a good one either. Doing this is like putting on blinders so that we can’t see anything else but that one thing, we miss out on a lot this way. This may come into play this week so keep your eyes open¬†so that you can spot this little obsession forming and put a stop to it before it dominates you. It’s all about detachment, when we strip away this “compulsion” it comes to us easier and more naturally.

Weekly Reading Oct 2 – 8

A new week has begun! I’m trying out a new reading spread for the week ahead, I feel like I’ve been switching things up every week but I’m trying to find a comfort spot with my weekly readings. I’m currently reading the book¬†Kitchen Table Tarot by Melissa Cynova and she talks about being true to yourself and true to your reading style, this spoke volumes to me! One thing I strive for with my tarot practice is to let my own style shine and be my own, but I do have days where I feel like I just got a tarot deck that morning and I stare at the cards going “wtf?!”… I’m sure many readers can relate to this big time! Ok, I think I’m rambling on and on, oop’s!

Anyways, I’m using the Cosmos Tarot & Oracle deck with the Spirit Speak tarot, I’m loving this deck pair lately!

In a hurry? This week is all about harnessing that strength and courage to make some big changes! We need to keep our focus and goals illuminated, put on our game face and push forward to grab them despite any blocks that may be present as you go about this week.

Energy present this week | Corona Australis (4 of  Earth)

Woah, Godzilla, calm down… or better yet, use that strength! Based on the cards this week I’m feeling we may need all that pent up energy to help us move through this week and make shit happen. This monster of a card is suggesting that there’s some change happening and we are the ones in the drivers seat manifesting this change. If you have a goal in mind this week, use your fear as fuel and make it work for you.¬†Face what you fear, look it in the eye, and take back control! This will be a week of dedicated focus in pursuing what we set out to do and it’s going to take some hefty¬†balls ovaries! Harness this Godzilla energy for the week and push through any barriers you feel that are trying to hold you back. RAWWRR!

Actions to take | The Sun + The Chariot

Two Majors showed up for the week, this is indeed some heavy magic at play – Godzilla wasn’t kidding! When you look at your goals for the week, keep them in view and illuminate them. Write them down and put them somewhere where you can see them daily. The Sun is suggesting that we keep a positive mindset and keep your eye on the “prize”, there is a lot of potential success this week if you keep a clear head and visualize what success means to you. Set some intentions today and make that list!

The Chariot says you are in control and you are the driving force in your part of the world this week. Goals should excite you and scare the hell out of you, but you are capable and you know it. When I see the Chariot pop up, it’s a reminder that even though we may be nervous and have much doubt, but we need to put on our game face and take the reigns. Nothing is going to happen if we sit int he backseat and hope the other driver takes us where we want to go, if we want to go somewhere then¬†we need to make it happen. If there is will, there is a way!

Struggle this week | 7 of Wands

It seems anytime we set out to accomplish something, a block of some kind always pops up, am I right? Don’t let anything stop you, keep pushing through. If you need to, find another way around this blockage to get to where you want to go. The hand in this card isn’t giving up, they’re persevering and holding their stance no matter what is trying to stop them. Keep this card in mind this week and be this hand, take a stand for yourself and don’t back down. Again, I’ll bring Godzilla into this… do you think he’s going to step back? No way, he’s going to crush what’s trying to stop him! Even if you don’t reach a goal that you set out to get, it’s ok. If you give it your all, then you know you tried your best. Dust yourself off and start again… don’t give up.

Weekly Reading: Sept 25 – Oct 1

I’ve been really grabbing for my Cosmos Tarot & Oracle deck this weekend so I decided to use it for me weekly reading today! I keep both of these decks together in one large deck, it makes for some great readings and I love seeing when an oracle card shows up. A while back, I started a deck study with this deck but only made it several cards in, you can find the master list of the cards here. I would love to pick this study back up but I am so scattered these days so I’m not sure I will be able to stick with it lol! I tend to dive all in then jump right back out, I’m learning that I tend to sway easily and need to pencil things in more and more. We will see, maybe I could dive into a card or two each week! I have some other deck studies I’ve been wanting to do, one was the Slow Holler Tarot that I also started a while back. I started that and abandoned that project after a few cards in. I think I just get so distracted, so easily… on that note, on to this weeks reading!

(Deck Used: Cosmos Tarot & Oracle)

In a hurry? This week is all about nurturing what we feel is the most important to us, but not letting it out into the world just yet. Also, keep it cool with your actions and words, let things play out and see what happens. We don’t always need to control everything, even if you’re a control freak like I am. Find some time to unwind as the week comes to a close, it’s good medicine for your mind, body, and soul!

The theme of the week is nurture! The card pulled was Fornax (2 of Fire). This card links closely to the 2 of Wands, I still feel it has its own identity. We have a spirit rising high in the sky holding dear to what she treasures. It suggests to me that we need to keep a tight hold on to what we hold important, keep these items, ideas, and things close to us. They are not ready to be sent out into the world just yet… much like the 2 of Wands, it’s about planning and preparing.

Before jumping into the weekly cards, I love how all the cards showed up as courts (minus the theme)! Sometimes court cards come to me as people in our life or hats we need to wear. This week, I’m drawn to the courts being attitudes and “hats” we need to put on to navigate the week.

To kick off the week we are greeted with Pyxis (Page of Fire). This card is kicking off our week and reflects the feeling I got from the theme card, Fornax. Planning and preparing, but I also feel this card is suggesting that we need to let our own personal compass take the lead this week. Don’t be afraid to go where you are being intuitively pulled, let any messages or signs you feel or see lead you. If your finding it difficult to start the week, go within and just listen. When we allow everyone else to tell us what to do and where to go, we often forget to listen to ourselves. We need to pay attention to our own internal needs, so listen up!

Moving to the middle of the week we are greeted by¬†Piscis Austrinus + Volans¬†(Page of Air). This card has such a calm feeling for me, the way the woman is so centered and focused while the fish swim around her. I feel like this is a “fight or flight” message for the midweek, it’s up to us on how we react. You can easily jump to action immediately, or sit back and see what happens. Drawing from the feeling I get from this card, I vote lets not fight this week! Let’s take a backseat and just remain calm and rational, let things flow and let things unravel on their own. Save your energy for what really needs your attention this week. Also, be sure to tap into your heart space before making a decision when it deals with communication, really see how that feels in our core. We need to save our breath and energy for what is more important.

Ending the week and moving into the weekend I pulled¬†Ophiuchus + Serpens (King of Fire). This is the third “fire” card that showed up this week and I feel it! The suit of fire is filled with ambition, creativity, and energy, so we may be feeling a bit on edge this week or we could be feeling the need to create and unleash! I’m feeling that surge of energy and it’s only Monday so far, big time! The end of the week may have us dueling between what we know is right but what we feel is wrong. Don’t push anything that doesn’t feel like it should be pushed, let things just flow. We all know right from wrong, so be smart about your choices and actions as you head into the weekend (AKA don’t go running around naked with snakes like this dude on the card, if you do though, just don’t get arrested at least)! On a side note, we may feel a bit strapped and tied down at the end of the week… use the weekend to untangle and let loose, just be smart! If you’re unable to unwind, try to at least find a moment that you can. This will only help ease some tension you may be feeling.

Weekly Reading for Sept 11-17

It’s Sunday! Time to grab my cards and get shuffling to see what’s in store this week, not without my iced coffee of course! Today I’m using my Circo Tarot a lot so I decided to use it again for this weeks messages. I forgot how much fun this deck is, I’ll need to pull it out more often for sure this week.

(Deck: Circo Tarot)

In a hurry? This week is mainly surrounded on planning and how you plan out your week! A good strategy can lead to a fantastic week… bad planning, could leave you crying over spilled (almond) milk. So lets really set some intentions for the new week and make it kick ass!

The theme of this week is the 2 of Wands will have a lot of play in how our week will go. It’ all about planning well! I think if we plan our week accordingly it will get us to those goal focused victories that we are always after. Poor planning will lead to… well, still a good week, but not as great as it could be and we know what we are fully capable of so no excuses!

Everything seems to be pointing towards the 3 of Cups in this reading so I feel like that’s the big aspect of our week. We need to focus on how we interact with others and what roles we play in any groups that we’re in, this will be key. Get your planners out, pens ready, and set some goals!

Starting off the week we have the 3 of Cups! It seems we will be starting off on a high note and I’m ok with that! It’s suggesting that we will be kicking off the week surrounded by those who lift our spirits. I’m drawn to the layout of this card and it makes me think of working together with others just like I mentioned above or possibly even the feeling of being crowded in these groups that we find ourselves in. If you are feeling a bit crowded, readjust your position in your week and find what’s comfortable for you. Overall, I’m feeling connectedness with this card!

Moving to the middle of this week we are greeted by yet another great card, this time from the 6 of Wands. I’m liking where this week is going! We must have done something right at the start of the week with planning because I’m seeing some praise headed our way, which is always welcomed, right? I feel like this reason of this recognition is closely tied to the 3 of Cups “events”. Someone or something helped bring about this feeling of achievement so you should for sure enjoy the moment and be proud! However, If you are¬†not at the center stage of all this and find yourself cheering on someone else, perhaps it had something to do with how well you stuck with your plan or vision for the week. Either way, I see this being a great midweek!

Ending the week we are gifted the Ace of Cups. Are we feeling a bit emo while entering the weekend? This is the week that just keeps giving it seems and I’m not complaining. The Ace of Cups suggests that we will be an overflowing cup of gratitude and that could possibly be a bit overwhelming so be sure to let some of this overflow out to those around you and not keep it all bottled up. After seeing the other cards this week I can see why we may feel a bit emotional at the end. Either something went very right or you didn’t map accordingly and we are eating (vegan) ice cream on the couch Friday while binge watching reruns of¬†Friends… let’s hope it’s not the latter or the two! I hope everyone has a great week!

Weekly Reading for Sept 4-10

I have missed posting my weekly readings and decided to start them back up again! I hope to get them posted on Sunday but this weekend threw me off with my husband and kiddo home today for Labor Day lol! Better late than never, right?

Get comfy, grab some coffee (or something else you may like) and let’s dive into the week ahead! I’m using two decks, the weekly cards with the Spirit Speak Tarot and this weeks theme card from my own Seed Oracle deck.

(Decks: Spirit Speak + Seed Oracle)

In a hurry? This week is all about seeing the bigger picture while blocking out the illusions and nonsense that is presented to you.

Starting off the week we have some expanding the horizon going on with the 3 of Wands! This can be seen all over the place… at your job with perhaps more tasks on your desk than you had planned to take on, or even at home with some extra work to be done. Take the first few days to work this extra load into your schedule but don’t overload yourself, see this as good growth happening! If this is something that someone else is unloading onto you, then that just means they think you can handle this extra work and have given it to you for a reason.

Moving to the middle of this week, the 7 of Cups comes as a little warning to be aware of. Keep an eye out for things too good to be true as we settle into the week, they often come with false hopes. Perhaps the 3 of Wands has opened up something bigger in your life, be sure to read the fine print and take a closer look before making a decision. This is also a good time to sort out your “needs vs. wants”, take priority on what is truly needed this week, the rest can wait.

Ending the week we come to the 5 of Swords. Block out the nonsense and get away from it. You don’t need this going into the weekend so just ditch the gossip and chatter and focus on what¬†you want to do. The 5 of Swords is all about “whatever it takes, just do it” so if your faced with some kind of verbal fight or just an annoying cloud hanging over your head, escape if you need to. This could be the perfect weekend to get out of town, unplug, or even just stay home and unwind. Just don’t give in to this nonsense around you so that it doesn’t ruin your weekend.

The theme of this week is Transition – movement, changes, easing into new waters. This card is all about transitioning and taking shape into something new. You can link this card up closely with the Death card in tarot, it’s the transformation aspect of the Death card. So this week keep moving and keep growing, much like the 3 of Wands suggests at the beginning of the week. This card will be your ticket out of the 5 of Swords popping up at the end of the week, move out of this position and into a position that brings you more peace.

Overall, looking at the big picture this week… I can see some growth forward and then possibly a step back, and that’s ok! Just keep moving forward, even if it feels like you aren’t making much progress.

Weekly Focus: Oct 31-Nov 6

Happy Halloween and Samhain! I hope everyone is having a great holiday today, it’s been feeling very minimal over here for me today. I’m just having a hard time finding the spirit this year (no pun intended), Halloween is my¬†absolute favorite holiday too! I’m sure I will feel it more as the day goes on!

Theme (soul) // 8 of Knives

Shutting out the world, closing yourself off, and possibly some shadow work to kick off this new month. The theme this week tells us that we may feel a bit distant and that it is ok! If October was a rough one for you, this may be key medicine telling you that you should spend some time closed off a bit. This could also mean that there will be some distance felt this week, more on the stubborn side of things. We may not wish to see things as they are and want to remain in a safe position where we feel secure and comfortable. However, If you are curious then go ahead and take the blind fold off to take a peek around. You may surprise yourself in what you find hidden in front of you!

Focus (mind) // Death

What do you want to end? What would you like to see take over in this new space? This is the focus for the week, making room for new beginnings and it is so fitting as the New Moon just passed us over the weekend. Celebrate those who have passed this week, not just today for the 31st. Celebrate life and death in their natural and raw forms. Connect with the aspects of death and what it means to you.

Action (body) // 9 of Pentacles

Be creative in your pursuits and use what you have. You may not realize this, but you have everything you need this week with you now. There is no need to give your wallet a run for it’s money, give it a rest and enjoy what you are surrounded in. Be resourceful and be grateful for what you have in your life at this point. Referring back to the Death card, this is a great card of giving gratitude to those who were before you.
