Decide on your card and we’ll begin our reading.
First Card – Fluorite
So we’ll start today with the first option covered by our purple fluorite. So if you chose this stone, I’m going to pull out some cards for your week ahead. For those who chose the first option, what is the most perfect information for their week ahead?
All right, let’s take a look. So your first card is going to be the Situation. Second card is your Obstacle. And the third card will be the Outcome. This card up above that’s covered by the fluorite will be the Advice for the week.
All right, let’s take a look: Situation. So here we go with our Eight of Swords. A woman tied up, surrounded by what almost looks like a cage of swords. She’s in the Badlands. You can see, she’s down in a swampy area. And the story goes that she’s actually from this castle up above, and she’s wandered away from her place of groundedness, from her place of clarity. It may be that she came up against a problem or a situation. And she kind of went looking for an answer, but ended up in a much more complicated place.
So it’s quite possible that some of you are feeling trapped, feeling very much lost in your head. There could be a sense of hopelessness…spinning, spinning, spinning, trying to figure out a particular situation.
Now, the advice for this card is almost always to find a way to get yourself grounded, go spend some time outside. Grounded is one side of it.
The other side is that there’s an emotional undercurrent that’s not been touched. Something needs to be felt. There might need to be some tears shed. It’s possible that you need to give yourself the time to feel what’s going on, rather than spinning and spinning and spinning inside of your head, trying to figure a situation out.
So let’s take a look… this situation is generally no fun. This could have to do with finances. This could have to do with career. It could be a relationship situation.
Whatever it is, it’s really come to a place of overwhelm. And it’s not an easy situation, because you can’t stay where you are. But you also don’t quite know where to go.
Like I said, generally, the advice that comes with this is: something needs to be felt, something that maybe you’ve been afraid of…to really let yourself feel and experience…needs to be turned towards.
But let’s take a look at the Obstacle: what it might be that’s getting in your way and creating the Situation. This is great. So The Lovers card, which is such a beautiful card.
When it’s in the Obstacle position, this card is often an indication of choices, that you’re in a place where you’re having a hard time making a choice. You feel a little bit stuck with this direction. It doesn’t quite make sense to go in that direction.
This can also be an indication of getting yourself into trouble around trying to do things your own way.
So for some of you, it’s possible that you’re bucking the rules around you. And it’s not quite working out at the moment. So often, when I see this card, the advice that comes with it is: it’s time to get connected with the choice that is best for you and your soul, even if it seems like the non-rational decision. You want to follow what is your higher calling.
Now, this can be really hard, because once we start leaning towards something that may not seem practical, may not seem like the sort of common sense decision, but towards something that is calling to us…all these thoughts, all these fears of our conditioning can start to come up.
So it’s possible that you’re up against a choice that feels impossible, because life is calling you to a deeper place, is calling you towards your soul path. It’s calling you towards what’s really true at your core.
And if you’ve been living a little bit more conventional, in a place that is the right or the “supposed to” direction, it can kick up a lot of worry and a lot of fear.
So let’s take a look at what your your outcome is for the week. Well, this makes a lot of sense to me.
Now, the Page of Swords – you can see that she’s in a very windy field. She’s got her sword up, prepared to fight or slice her way through.
I like to think of this card as the card of differentiation. And what I mean by that is that when things are mucky or muddled or confusing, she’s coming in with the blade of truth, to start to clear out space to understand what’s going on.
So I like to think of this as a time where we’re, we’re exploring what’s true for us. What is our stuff that we need to be dealing with, versus what has been told to us…the emotions and energies of others around us.
The work of this card is clarifying what’s true for you, clarifying situations that feel complicated and muddy, by getting down into the nitty-gritty of: “Wait a second. Is this what I really think? Or is this what somebody else has told me I should think, feel or be experiencing?”
So one of the ways that you might work with this is journaling: “Okay, here’s one of the feelings that I’m having. Is this my feeling? Is this feeling true? Can I know that it’s absolutely true?”
Another way of working with this is to take a walk, and let yourself talk to yourself. This is a great method. Go take a walk somewhere where you’re not going to look too crazy, and just let your stream of consciousness come out.
Rather than having it bottled up in your mind, like our Eight of Swords, she’s very much sort of isolated inside of herself, but actually getting it out. So you can hear yourself say some of the thoughts that you’ve been having. You will be surprised at how helpful that can be.
So let’s take a look at your Advice card for today.
All right. This is a helpful card in terms of contextualizing your situation. This is our lovely Hanged Man.
And one of the ways of interpreting The Hanged Man, particularly in the Advice position is: that you’re in a period where things just aren’t going to move forward.
So rather than trying to force your way through, or all the confusion around: “Why can’t I figure this out? Why aren’t things moving forward?” this can give you a little bit of ease, because it’s a sign that that’s just the situation you’re in.
Regardless, if you put all the effort in the world where you find the perfect decision, ultimately, things are a little bit on pause at the moment. So that’s one side of the advice of the Hanged Man.
The other side is recognizing that this is an opportunity for you to be looking at the situation before you from a new perspective.
So for some of you, that could be a relationship situation you’re being asked, and in some sense forced, to look at that relationship from a new light. What are the places that you haven’t looked at around this particular situation?
For others, this could be a career scenario that feels stuck or trapped, or something around your purpose in general, and you’re getting an opportunity. It’s like life is putting you on pause and you’re getting an opportunity to sift through your feelings and your thoughts on the matter. So this isn’t a time to get overly worried about trying to make something happen or trying to get the right move. It’s a time to do some self reflection. And definitely a time to do this differentiation process, this process of unlocking: “What’s your true feelings about something versus what you’ve been told, or how you think you’re supposed to be acting.”
So this will be your reading for those of you that chose the first card. Thank you for listening. Definitely let me know how this resonates for you. And I look forward to connecting with you next time.
Second Card – Opal
All right, let’s take a look at our second choice.
So for those of you that chose the opal stone and the second card, we’re gonna open up a reading for the week ahead for you, and it’s the most perfect information for those who chose the second option. All right, let’s see what we have here for those of you that chose this second step.
So we’ve got our Situation card, our Obstacle card, and our Outcome card. And our card here covered over by the opal is going to be your Advice card.
So situation, crew, this is one of my favorite cards in the deck, because it’s so multifaceted. And most of the cards have many different layers to it both multi-dimensionally, materially, emotionally.
So there’s always different facets to the cards when we look at him. I like to think of this card, specifically as the lineage that we’re associated with. And that can be the spiritual lineage, that can also be the family lineage. In other words, our actual genetic family lineage, it can also speak to the wealth, or the power that’s coming from multiple generations. So this can sometimes represent a company that we’re working for. It can represent a very wealthy individual or family that were associated with.
But I tend to really lock in with: What does this mean on a lineage level? In other words, what is it that I’m associated with that goes back through time, and we’ll go forward through time.
So we’re gonna pull the second card just to see if it gives us a little bit more context for this first one. But this kind of wealth, this kind of abundance that spans through multiple generations and will continue to carry on can be a really good sign for some of you, that you might be headed to, or starting to associate with a different type of abundance, a different type of wealth, a different kind of support in your life and in the business actions that you’re making.
So let’s take a look here at the obstacle.
So we’ve got our Eight of Pentacles. And this is really the card of refinement work on becoming masterful at our craft. It’s a card of great focus on what it is that we’re wanting to achieve.
Considering that we’ve got two pentacle cards here, and this is the final card in the pentacle deck, so it’s the total fruition of the suit of pentacles, which is great abundance, multigenerational abundance, this Eight of Pentacles, being in the Obstacle position, could be a sign that you’re having a little bit of trouble dialing in your focus on what it is that you’re wanting, putting in the time, putting in the effort to become really good at, what it is that you’re wanting in your life.
So it could be that some of you are feeling a little bit of lack of motivation, or that you are feeling disconnected from the work that you’re doing.
For others, it’s possible that you are actually over focusing on your work, you’re not paying attention to the larger context, or to family and relationships. You’ve become hyper-focused on your work situation.
So let’s take a look at your Obstacle card, or your Outcome card. And that’ll continue to open up our understanding of where things are going right now.
All right, Six of Swords. So, Six of Swords tends to be a sign of a movement away from a challenging or very chaotic situation, and making your way towards at least somewhat more peaceful waters.
Particularly with what we see here in your previous two cards, it’s possible that some of the reason that there’s a lack of motivation, or there’s some hyper-focus on something is that there’s some sort of chaos that’s been going on in your life, whether that’s in your workplace, or that’s in a relationship that you’re needing to sort of distance yourself.
If you’re wanting to create or develop this higher level of wealth, higher level of wisdom, and you’re wanting to become really good at what you do, it’s going to be important for you to make your way away, create some distance from what might be creating a lot of chaos in your life.
Now, the Six of Swords isn’t necessarily a sign of a quick fix. It’s a sign that you need to get away from something that is creating chaos. But that doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily going to be suddenly totally dialed in or suddenly back in the driver’s seat with creating the abundance that you’re wanting in your life.
It’s more a first step in creating some peace in your life, a first step in getting dialed back in, but it’s a really important step.
So let’s take a look at your Advice card for the week.
This is another one of my absolute favorite Major Arcana cards, the Judgment card. And for me, it is a direct call to be listening to what’s most important, listening to your higher purpose.
This card tends to show up when we’re up against a level change, a change towards potentially growing into a higher aspect of ourself. It generally is an Advice card that’s letting you know: “It’s time to do some reflecting on the patterns and the choices that you’ve made in the recent times, as well as being willing to go further back in time and looking over some of the big decisions that you’ve made.”
The question that the Judgment card brings is: Am I making choices that are moving me closer to my purpose? Am I making decisions that are kind and fair to others? Or have I been avoiding the little voice that is saying, “Go this way. Don’t do that.”
So the advice when it comes to this is being willing to make time to reflect on the trajectory of your life. Are you really dialed in with what you’re wanting? Are you making choices that are heading in the right direction for yourself?
The judgment card can also be a sign that there is an awakening, or a large change in your purpose in the calling of your life.
So this is an important time to be listening closely. Listen closely to what life is asking for you, for the little whispers that are trying to lead you towards greater connection with your higher self and with your purpose in life.
All right, so for those of you that chose the second card, this is your reading for the week. And definitely let me know how this resonates for you. I love hearing from you. And thanks for tuning in.
Third Card – Selenite
All right, let’s take a look at our third choice. So for those of you that chose the selenite stone, and the third choice, this is going to be the reading for you.
So those who chose the third choice…perfect information for those of you who have chosen the third choice.
Alright, let’s see what we have this week. So your first card will be the Situation. Second card is the Obstacle. And third card will be the Outcome. And the card underneath the selenite will be your Advice card.
So let’s take a look at your Situation card for the week: Three of Pentacles. So Three of Pentacles is the willingness to work with others towards a common goal. And this can be in your personal life in terms of working together with a partner. This can be in your business life or career, being willing to work with others towards a particular project or creating something.
This is also a great card to create and develop humility, being willing to go to the people that are experts in a particular field and listen to what they have to say.
There is somewhat of a spiritual connotation to this card because they’re inside of a church, so they’re building something that is meant for the greater good of humanity. They’re creating something together that’s going to bring people closer to their spiritual selves.
So for those of you that are on a spiritual mission, this is a card to remember. That is a reminder to be willing to take other perspectives in, right. We’ve got the builder that’s working on something, but we also have the monk and the jester. So we have multiple different perspectives and ideas, working together to create something.
Sometimes people can get isolated with their vision. It’s important to continue the interaction and the communication with others to help build something.
Let’s take a look at the Obstacle card. So the Obstacle card for this week is the Ten of Pentacles. And when the Ten of Pentacles is hanging out in the Obstacle position, it can be a sign that you are up against larger corporations. You are up against larger systems or structures, or up against people that have a lot of wealth.
So the Ten of Pentacles is about multigenerational trajectories, multigenerational wealth, multigenerational systems and patterns. So it’s possible for some of you that you’re coming up against systems that want you to be going in a particular direction, even though you’re wanting to go somewhere else.
So this can be the obstacle for some of you. For some of you, it’s quite possible that you’re, in fact, getting into conflict with your family: your family, their views. Their life patterns have been going on generation upon generation, and you’re having to both navigate those within yourself, because you’re born in that family system.
But it’s also possible that externally you’re actually having conflict with brothers and sisters, or mothers and fathers who want you to go a particular way. And they’re not necessarily supporting the direction that you’re wanting to go. They’re not necessarily supporting what you’re building in your life.
Let’s take a look at your Outcome card for this week. This is a lovely card, our Hanged Man. And this, seeing this as your Outcome card is shifting a little bit of how I’m understanding these first two.
So the Hanged Man card is a – some people would say that he was hung by somebody else here. But there’s a smugness to him. There’s a sense of peace here. So we might say that he’s hung himself upside down intentionally in order to understand life from a new perspective. There’s a spiritual reason that he’s put himself here.
I like to call this card, the yogic, the yogi card, you know. You get yourself in a weird yogic position. It’s not comfortable. But ultimately, as a result of that position, you feel better, you have more insights.
So the outcome for this week is actually you getting new perspectives, you getting some insights from others, that help you understand what it is that you’re trying to build, what it is that you’re trying to do from a new perspective.
So it’s still possible that you’re having to deal with people that are trying to push you in the wrong direction. But I’m actually starting to see this, the Ten of Pentacles in the Obstacle position, as maybe what’s going to give you new insights.
So your willingness to listen to people that have created wealth, created wisdom, created structures for many generations, if not hundreds, upon hundreds of years. You’ve been willing to listen to some of that wisdom…is going to open up new perspectives for you. It’s going to help you see things from a new light.
Now, unfortunately, or fortunately, as a result of seeing some of these new perspectives, you might find yourself having to take a pause on the direction you are going.
At the very least, this will give you an opportunity to reorient, and hopefully reorient in a direction that is going to get you where you’re wanting to go faster and with more integrity. But just don’t be terribly surprised if you’re going to have to pause, rethink, and sort of reorganize.
So let’s take a look at your Advice card for this week. So we’ve got our Queen of Pentacles. And this makes me think that who it is that you’re going to get some of this new insight and this wisdom from could be a woman, or somebody that has really learned the value and the power of a balanced life. This is somebody that has created a good deal of wealth and abundance for themselves, but they haven’t sacrificed their well being or their health to do so. They know the power of both creating vitality and themselves, peace in themselves. And in doing so, they’re able to create very healthy, abundant systems, businesses, and lifestyles.
So this is a sign to be willing to listen to those who have already created a good deal of wealth and balance in their lives.
This can also be advice to be paying attention to creating the same kind of balance for yourself. If you’re overworking and not giving yourself enough time to rest, digest, be at ease, then it’s time to sort of slant yourself back towards the center line, where you’re both creating and being active in life. But you’re also giving yourself room to rest and be at peace and to enjoy some of life.
So for those of you that chose the third option, this is your reading for the week.
Always nice to connect with you. Let me know how this lands, love hearing from you. And thank you so much for stopping by.
