Oracle Card Reading For July 17 – 23, 2017

Hello lovelies! Welcome to your weekly Oracle card reading for the week of July 17. This week is all about acting with love and grace in all that you do, even in the face of obstacles or disappointments. For this reading I used John Holland’s The Psychic Tarot for the Heart Oracle Deck, so this reading is primarily focused on the energy around our relationships this week. Keep in mind that this is not just limited to romantic relationships but that the Oracle wisdom extends to all of the relationships we have in our lives – friends, family, co-workers, even pets! So, let’s get to it!

Share the Love, Giving & Receiving, Choose Your Battles

Monday/Tuesday: Share the Love – We start the week off with a reminder to spread and share love with everyone you come into contact with, including yourself. One of the most wonderful things about love is no matter how much you give away there is never any less – in fact, you’ll usually end up with even more. Start by showering yourself with love, and then extend it out to others. Love takes many forms; a smile, an act of generosity or kindness, unconditional acceptance, just to name a few. This is a time for being with friends and those that you care about. Connect with others through your heart and enjoy the love and light which radiates back to you. Should you have a difficult or challenging person or situation show up for you, ask yourself, “what would love do?” and act accordingly.

Wednesday/Thursday: Giving & Receiving – Have you ever noticed that when you share freely with and give to others, you receive just as much (if not more) in return? Mid-week, we build and increase the momentum of the loving energies from the start of the week. Continue to share the love, and give fully of yourself to those around you. Giving without expectations of others opens you up to receiving blessings you may not even be able to imagine. This is a card of balance and tranquility in your relationships with others. I love that this card takes us from one hand pictured on Monday & Tuesday’s card to four pairs of hands pictured on this card as it perfectly illustrates how love and giving and sharing lead to so much more for everyone. Remember that when you share your gifts with others, they are inclined to share theirs with you as well. What a blessing!

Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Choose Your Battles – Know what is worth taking a stand for and what is better to let go of. Battling with the Universe and those around you over every little thing you dislike, don’t approve of, or would do differently is a recipe for overwhelm and exhaustion. Trust that you will be happier and more productive when you choose to stand up for only those things which are truly important to you to fight for. Let the little stuff go – especially those things which don’t really matter much anyhow. You’ll have more energy to affect the changes you desire when you stop sweating the small stuff. This card is also a reminder that it is more important to be gracious and kind than it is to be right at any cost. Don’t let your desire to win the argument keep you from this gracious kindness – let love’s grace guide you through your weekend.

I hope you all have a beautiful week! Love & blessings are being sent to you! 💗

Weekly Card Reading For April 17-23, 2017

Before doing this weekly reading I took a few moments to “tune in” to the Universal energies which affect us all. This week I used John Holland’s Psychic Tarot for the Heart Oracle Cards.

Crown Chakra, Observe, Reach Out

Monday/Tuesday: Crown Chakra – It’s time to tap into your connection to your Highest Self and the Divine. Pay attention to the signs and opportunities that the Universe is sending your way. Take time to meditate, pray, and talk to your angels as the channels of communication are wide open now. Trust that any intuitive hits you may receive are divinely guided. Keeping your Crown Chakra open and active will benefit you at this time.

“To enhance this chakra, sit quietly and visualize a lotus bud on the top of your head. As the bud blossoms, see a shower of whitish-violet sparkling light shining down from the Universe onto the lotus, filling and nourishing it. When complete, simply let the vision fade.” – John Holland

Wednesday/Thursday: Observe – Be a neutral observer in your own life. Notice what areas of your life are being impacted by tunnel vision and open yourself up to looking closer at those areas objectively and from many different angels and perspectives. No need to beat yourself up – just notice things as they actually are and not only as you’d like them to be. Oftentimes, when we look at things in an entirely new way, we find that opportunities and options we have overlooked in the past have been there, calling out to ourselves all along. This card comes with an affirmation:

” I now take a step back and observe my situation in a new light.” – John Holland

Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Reach Out –  Community is at the very root of all human experience. As humans, we are hard wired to long for and need genuine connections with other people.  This weekend, reach out to others, connect into YOUR community. Ask others for help with your struggles, and don’t hesitate to help others with their own difficulties. Do not be afraid to shine and share your authentic self with those around you – even if it is only one person – for this connection will fuel your soul.

February Deck Round Up

Tarot Decks, Oracle Card Decks, Angel Card Decks

I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of decks. Tarot, Oracle, and Angel card decks will often call my name and find their way into my shopping cart. And once they’ve made their way into the shopping cart, they find wonderful homes on my desk, book cases, and nightstand drawers. To streamline my process when reading cards for myself or others I tend to start each month by meditating and then receiving guidance on which card decks I will be working with during that month. Now, this doesn’t mean I won’t work with a deck if it calls to me later in the month – of course I always listen to my guidance in this area! It’s more like an intention I set to work with particular cards for my highest good, as well as the highest good of my clientele, and it is a big time saver as I all ready have my deck selection narrowed down. This month, I thought I’d share with you the decks I plan to work with the most during February.

With Valentines Day coming up I tend to get a lot of heart centered inquiries during the month of February. It simply seems like almost everyone has love on their mind at this time of year! Because of this I have selected 2 romance and relationship themed decks to have out for easy access – Doreen Virtue’s The Romance Angels Oracle Cards and John Holland’s The Psychic Tarot for the Heart Oracle Deck.  Both of these decks are excellent for love related questions, and are very useful for drilling down to the heart of the issue in a very gentle and loving way.

One area I am personally working on this month is focusing on personal development and discovering and living in alignment with my life purpose. One easy way I stay connected to my life purpose is to pull a card from the Life Purpose Oracle Cards deck, asking for guidance in connecting into my purpose. This is fun and easy, and can be done on a daily or weekly basis. I also have gotten some wonderful life purpose guidance for myself and for clients by using Tori Hartman’s Chakra Wisdom Oracle Cards. Each of these cards has a corresponding fable which is summarized in the accompanying guidebook, but I highly recommend her book Chakra Wisdom Oracle Toolkit which has the full text of each fable, and weekly exercises to help you fully incorporate the lessons into your life. The subtitle of this book is “A 52-week journey of self discovery with the lost fables”. I am not a big new years resolution person, but I did resolve to work through the journey throughout 2017. I am only 5 weeks in, but all ready feeling subtle shifts occurring.

This month I was also guided to pull out Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards. This is a deck that I have owned for a while, but not spent a lot of time connecting with. For this reason I plan to use this one mostly for myself, not with my clients. The deck is beautiful and I’m looking forward to playing with it this month, and sharing cards with you here on the blog!

One deck I do anticipate using quite a bit with my clients this month is Angel Answers Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine. This deck gives clear and direct guidance on all sorts of inquiries, and I find that the images and messages really resonate with my clients who are interested in Angel card readings. This deck is great as a stand alone deck, but I also use it a lot for pulling a clarification card, or an inspiration card at the end of the reading.

Of course, I could not complete this list without putting a couple tarot decks on it! I have been working with tarot since the 80s and I love the depth and complexity that the 78 card structure provides. My trusty standby is the Radiant Rider Waite deck. It’s a classic that you can’t really go wrong with. For my angel lovers I pulled out Angel Tarot Cards which is just as accurate and insightful as traditional tarot, but with gentler angel inspired imagery. I’m also feeling called to do more readings with the Shadowscapes Tarot by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. This deck has a soft, dreamy, mystical quality and I am excited to spend time in that world this month.

Do you work with Angel, Tarot, or Oracle cards? If so, I’d love to hear from you as to which deck or decks you are planning on working with this month – pop into the comments below and let me know. I love hearing from you!
