Hey there, this is Jonathan Lionheart with your Pick a Card Weekly Tarot Reading. It’s going to be a good week ahead for some of you.
There’s going to be some massive expansion in the realm of work and success.
For others, you could be in the process of beginning to leave a situation that just isn’t feeding you in the way that it used to.
So I’m really excited for you to take a look.
I always love hearing from you. If you’d like, you can grab a private reading with me down below.
And let’s jump right in and see what’s going on. Take care.
So give yourself a moment to take a few deep breaths and just settle into this precise moment. Allow your awareness to drop into the sensations of your body, and maybe put some of your attention in your heart space. All right, let’s take a look at what we have for your week ahead.
Once again, you’ll have the opportunity to choose which card you are feeling called towards, which will open up the reading for you.
So we call out to Mother, Father, God, the angels and the archangels, the deep ones, the rooted ones, call out to the grandmothers and the grandfathers of the north, the south, the east, and the west. Be with us now, help bring forward a clear message for those who are watching and the right kind of supportive energy for the weekend.
All right. So what are the perfect options for those who are watching right now?
So our first option will be underneath the selenite here. Second option will be underneath the opal. And third option will be beneath the purple fluoride.
So touch base with your interior sense again. In other words, the feelings of your body, which helps you connect with your intuition – an embodied sort of instinctual intuition. And notice which card is calling, which stone is calling to you today. And trust your sense of where your eyes, where your feelings keep coming back to. And let’s get started.
First Card – Selenite
So, for those of you that chose the first card underneath the selenite, this is going to be the reading here for you. So I’m going to pull out some cards. Specifically, for those of you who picked up or chose the selenite card.
So our first card will be the Situation. Second card is the Obstacle. And the third card will be the Outcome and our card over here underneath the selenit will be the Advice.
So let’s take a look at the Situation. Our situation card for you this week is our Eight of Cups. And I’m sure you’ve heard me say before, this is one of my absolute favorite cards. Because it’s speaking to a time in your life where you’re being called to something more. You’re being called to something deeper, you’re being called sort of to the next level in your life.
And often what this looks like is – you can see the symbolism of the…this sort of swampy drying up area that this individual has been in. There’s a sense of them having been in a situation or in a context for a long time, which is symbolized by the crescent in the full moon in the sky.
So for some of you what might be going on is you’ve been in a relationship. You’ve been in a work context, you’ve been In a thinking pattern or emotional state that you’ve experienced.
You’ve been in this situation for a long period of time. And it may not have been an awful situation, but it’s kind of come to its end. It’s no longer. It doesn’t have the fresh water anymore. It doesn’t have a sense of depth or meaning to it, maybe like it once did.
But it’s come to a place where it’s drying up, or it no longer has what it is that you feel like is important to you.
So for some of you, you may have reached this place. And you could be coming to the realization that you want something more, that there’s something deeper from life, deeper from relationship, deeper from purpose, that you are wanting to engage with.
And that’s why our individual in the card image is heading up the mountain. He’s looking to see if there’s something else out there that can provide more meaning, more purpose in his life. So there isn’t a, there isn’t any indication that this person leaves and comes back or that they move on.
So it’s possible that for some of you, you’re needing to go on an adventure that helps you reconnect with meaning. And afterwards, you’ll return to the place that you know, maybe bringing that fresh water for others. You could be heading up the mountain, finding fresh water, and moving on to greener pastures.
So once again, one of my favorite cards, let’s take a look at the obstacle for your week.
So our Obstacle card for the week ahead is our Knight of Pentacles. And the Knight of Pentacles is a Knight of methodical, grounded work. This individual works hard, takes their time.
However, in the place of the Obstacle, this can be somebody that is very stubborn, who is very slow moving, they can’t see the bigger view necessarily, they’d much rather stay with what’s known, what’s cozy, what’s comfortable. They’re not interested in taking risks.
In other words, this could be somebody that is not necessarily willing to take the chance to go up into the mountains and to explore to try something new. So for some of you, this could be an aspect of yourself, that is feeling stubborn, and would rather stay safe. And with what is already known.
For others, this could be somebody in your life that is saying, “No, I don’t want things to change. No, I don’t want it to switch.” So this could be somebody that’s quite stubborn and creating a blockage to the transformation that’s wanting to occur.
Let’s take a look at your your next card, the Outcome card for the week ahead. All right, so the Four of Pentacles. So this is another great card. It can sometimes denote a sense of instability or a sense of feeling a little bit ungrounded or uncertain in oneself. But it’s also a card that saying: “Hey, pay attention to your finances right now. Pay attention to what’s possible. It’s a little bit of a recommendation to be a bit conservative with your actions at the moment.”
So there’s some kind of balancing that’s being asked between these cards, because on the one side, it’s really clear that there’s something fresh – new possibilities that are calling out to you, that are asking for you to bring some change.
However, there’s also the influence of somebody or something in yourself that’s saying: “Let’s move slow. I’m not ready for change. I’m a little bit…this is too much. No, let’s not do that.” This sort of stubborn influence.
And what’s coming out the other side is a reminder to pay attention to what’s practical and what’s real, right now. So it’s a reminder not to necessarily go charging off into the mountains.
It’s also a reminder that you don’t necessarily have to be stuck or sticky in some place. But just to be practical, to be aware of where what’s really possible, particularly on a financial level.
So let’s take a look at your Advice card for the week. So this is kind of perfect advice. And the reason that I’m saying that is that it’s it’s reminding you that you are gaining momentum even if things feel like they’re moving a little bit slow.
There’s good momentum that’s happening. You’ve already placed some pretty strong foundational staffs in the ground, which means that you’ve already sort of made progress in a particular direction. And you’re in a, you’re in a waiting period now, and this guy is, he’s waiting for the chips that he’s sent out to return to him.
So both this sense of there being healthy progress, but also you don’t have to rush anything. Give yourself some time. Life, the universe is aware that you are ready for change, you’re ready to create something new.
Take a moment and see what starts to show up for you. Give yourself some room around the sense of needing to charge forward. See what return, see what’s coming back to you, and the messages and the doors that want to open.
Alright, so for those of you that chose the selenite card, this was your reading.
Thank you so much for tuning in. I look forward to connecting with you again next week. And I always love hearing from you. Take good care.
Second Card – Black Opal
So let’s take a look. Now for those of you that chose the second card. The obsidian here is, this obsidian – this is black opal, sorry. So for those of you that chose this card, let’s take a look at what you’re reading for the week ahead is going to be. I’m just going to tune in with the group of people that chose this particular card
Somebody asked me what this is like when I’m doing these readings. What happens is, I sit here, and this line along my spine is kind of, it’s like an antenna. And the way that it feels is it’s like an antenna. And through intention, I’m able to sort of connect with a group energy. And then as I keep my focus and my attention there, it gets more and more clear until I feel ready to start pulling cards, just to give you a little behind the scenes here.
All right, so first card for those of you that chose the card underneath the opal here will be your Situation. Second card is your Obstacle. Third card is the Outcome.
Alright, so let’s see what the Situation for the week ahead is. We’ve got our Six of Wands. This is a great card. It’s on the high side of the spectrum. This is a card about success, like having big, breakthrough kind of success – winning a battle, getting a chance to be seen by the people around you.
So for some of you, this might look like a big job success, like winning a particular project that you’ve been wanting to do, or completing a project in a way that it has created a lot of financial gain or a lot of success in general.
For others, this could be a breakthrough or a break out into getting seen by your peer group or by your bosses or the people that you work with.
Now, on the low side of the spectrum – in other words, some of the shadow side of the Six of Wands – can sometimes be overly prideful, feeling like you’re the center of attention and you’re the most important individual in the universe.
So often there’s, like, a balancing point between those things, because this is great self confidence.
You could start this week out feeling like: “Heck yes, I can do it. I can make the changes that I’m wanting to make. I can tackle the projects that I’m working on. I can get what I want.”
But let’s take a look at what the Obstacle is for the week ahead. So this is an interesting Obstacle card. This is the Four of Cups, and I – it’s another great card, specifically symbolically, because this fella is, he’s sitting alone, he’s outside of any sort of room, relational context. He’s outside of the city. And he’s reminiscing on the Three of Cups.
And if you know what the Three of Cups is, it’s three women celebrating, majestically having a fantastic time dancing in circles with a cornucopia of food.
So one of the ways of interpreting this particular card is that he’s looking back at a time where things are really abundant and lush and full of life. And he’s having a little bit of a hard time, bringing in the next step, which is balance, fours tend to represent really good balance. However, when they arrive, the fours tend to show us where there’s a lack of balance. And so it tends to be a period of time or an area where we’re having to sort of rebalance ourselves. We’re having to focus on an area that might be hard for us, a part of our psyche or a part of our life that we’ve resisted bringing balanced to.
So part of the way that this could be showing up as an obstacle in this particular position is: “Gosh, it feels really good when I’m excited, when I’m motivated, when I feel like people are seeing me, like all engines are heading in the right direction. I have a little bit more trouble, when I’ve got to bring in – it could be the work element, it could be the low after a bit of a creative burst.”
Some people are more capable at the starting part where it’s inspiration and good ideas and all this and then taking it into the plateau of the work of actually getting things done, of actually accomplishing things can be harder, more challenging for certain individuals.
So for some of you, there could be a little bit of leaning towards wanting to stay in the energy of success and creativity, even to the point of denying the other side of it, which is a bit of the contemplative or a bit of the creation phase.
For others, it’s possible that you’re reminiscing on a time where this kind of excitement and this kind of joy was readily available to – but let’s take a look at what the Outcome card is.
And maybe that’ll help us unlock a bit more of what’s going on here. So Outcome card this week is getting in contact with the unconscious piece that is creating a bit of this resistance to balance. There’s almost a flavor that I’m getting here, that wants to lean towards some of the manic side of the spectrum.
In other words: “If I just stay up, if I just stay really motivated, if I just stay really ‘going, going, going,’ then I can avoid the part of me that it doesn’t want to feel some of the lows, right, the valleys side of the spectrum.”
And what this is pointing to, what life is asking you to be aware of…is to come into contact with something in you that feels uncertain, something in you that is not sure of itself, sort of the other side, like the the secret side of the spectrum here, right, the pride side of the Six of Wands.
There’s going to be a place that it goes, “Oh, I actually don’t know what I’m doing, oh, I don’t actually know, if I’m sure if this is the right direction.”
So this could really be a week of coming into contact with some of these places that feel a little bit uncertain or scary. And what’s important about this is that the true, deeply authentic, self-confidence can only be manifested in one’s life.
If the areas of uncertainty are integrated, they’re allowed to be a part of the greater conversation. As long as we’re hiding away, the things that we’re afraid of, or hiding away places of uncertainty, we’re sort of canceling or putting them in a capsule and hiding them away.
There’s some part of our self-confidence that is built on shaky ground. So that’s the overall sense that I’m getting here. I’m not necessarily taking this as a negative thing. This is a period or a process in which you get to get in touch with a deep unconscious motivation that can be healed and integrated.
So let’s take a look at your Advice card for the week. I like this, okay, so this is quite interesting. The Two of Wands is a card of clarity, is your vision of seeing the big view of what’s possible from a place of rootedness and groundedness.
Now, the reason that I like this is that the Outcome card that’s showing up for you is this Two of Swords, which comes from a place of, there’s something that is uncertain, there’s a directional choice, or a sense of what wants to happen next, that’s hiding. And that’s creating a lot of irritation or fear.
And the Advice that’s coming through is the Two of Wands, which is saying: “Plant your feet firmly on the ground, take a look at what these different possibilities or options are,” that while they’re in the unconscious or creating irritation, if you can get really clear about what these possibilities are potentials are this choice that maybe you’re avoiding, or these decisions that maybe you’re avoiding, you’re actually opening up the possibility to see things with much greater clarity.
This is basically your key to discovering true confidence and strong motivation, and to raising any of this unconscious fear to the surface and making it into part of your strong foundation.
Alright, so that’s what I have for those of you that chose the second card. Thank you so much. I hope this is helpful. Love hearing from you, definitely reach out if you’d like to say something. And thank you so much.
Third Card – Fluorite
All right, so we’ve now got our third option here. So for those of you that chose the purple fluorite, this is going to be the reading for you to do. So I’m just going to tune in with the group that chose this third card now.
All right, so your first card will be the Situation. Second card is the Obstacle. And third card is the Outcome.
So let’s take a look at your Situation for the week ahead. We’ve got our Ten of Wands. And I’m sure you can sort of get a sense of this just by looking at it right. There’s this guy that’s got, he’s got a ton of wands, he’s got Ten wands. He’s struggling to carry them forward. What’s a little bit harder to see in this particular representation, he’s got a big, beautiful house.
So this is the card of responsibility, and the kind of rewards that come with carrying this level of responsibility. In other words, some of you might have a whole lot on your plate. This can be family stuff, as well as job stuff, as well as just the complexities of life. And the weight of it might be feeling kind of overwhelming.
For others, you’ve made a conscious choice, you’ve made a conscious choice because you want the fruits of your labors. So you’ve taken on an enormous amount of responsibility because you know that in one way or another, it’s paying off this week, particularly, and we’ll see as the other cards come forward this week in particular, you could feel like there’s just a ton that you’re needing to do, and it could feel overwhelming. It could also feel like: “Heck yes, look how strong I’ve become. I can pick up and take a lot.”
But let’s take a look at your second card. The Obstacle for the week ahead. So this is interesting. We’ve got our Sun – Major Arcana card – and The Sun is a card of unconditional love, the kind of joy and playfulness that comes from our inner child and from youth.
It’s also a card of massive growth, the solar energy, the solar side of the spectrum is like young energy, it’s: “Go grow, take action, move,” this kind of thing. Sunflowers grow enormously fast. So we’ve got our sunflowers in the background, like, growing. It’s this vital, powerful energy.
Now as an Obstacle card, there are a couple of things that could be going on here. For some of you, this could be the side of you that just wants to go play that would much prefer, you know, hanging out outside or hanging out with friends, or being silly and watching a movie with your significant other. It’s the part of you that just wants to go and explore and play. But oh, gosh, there’s a whole lot that needs to be taken care of right now.
Now, for others, this could be – the Obstacle could be that there is massive growth that’s happening. And it’s hard for you to keep up with it. It’s moving a little bit too fast. And in which case, the problem, or the challenge isn’t so much that there is, that you’ve got too many obligations necessarily. It’s that you just can’t keep up with the growth process that’s trying to occur in your life right now.
So let’s take a look at the Outcome here. This is a great Outcome card. This is another Major Arcana card. We’ve got our lovely Chariot here. And The Chariot is the individual who has dialed it in, knows the direction that they want to go, and they are putting all of their will, all of their tools to practice to get to where they’re going.
This, particularly in the context of what we’re seeing here, is the willingness and the willpower to take the responsibilities that are on your plate. Use the energy, the growth, the vitality. And then pointing it in the direction that you’re wanting to make things occur.
So you are using what’s in front of you to grow enormously and to make things happen in the way that you want them to happen.
Now, an important element of the chariot card is his, the axial integration. And what I mean by that is that the axis line from above, all the way to below is integrated. So this means that the inspiration that’s symbolized by the stars here, and the the intuitive side, the spirit side of things, are able to connect into him all the way down to the instinctual level, which is represented by the sphinxes. The instinctual, and the sort of polarized nature of reality, his inspiration goes all the way into life.
And so what this means for you is that your insights and what it is that you’re wanting all the way up at a mental and spiritual level are being implemented, and you’re able to move yourself in the direction that you want to move towards.
Now, this is a card of action. It’s not a card of receptive, waiting. It’s saying: “Hey, take the reins, bring about the changes that you want to bring, there is a lot of energy.” In this particular reading in terms of progress growth, this could be a really powerful week for you.
So let’s take a look at the Advice card. So the Advice card for your week ahead is the Page of Cups. And this can be a reminder to take in, like, rather than getting bogged down by all the responsibilities, be open to spontaneous ideas, spontaneous, creative impulses. Be open to people that call you up and are like, “Hey, let’s go for a run. Let’s go. Or let’s go have coffee.”
Like, there’s something important and inspirational and catalyzing that could show up for you this week. So stay open to those spontaneous, creative sparks to those ideas and to individuals that might show up who have great ideas or can create some powerful influence for you.
Alright, so for those of you that chose the third card, that was your reading there. I hope this is helpful. Definitely reach out, say something. I always love hearing from you.
And thank you so much. And thanks everybody for tuning in for this reading. It’s always a lot of fun for me. I love connecting with you all and I hope you have a lovely week ahead and I look forward to seeing you next week. Take care.
