Its Monday again, and not only the start of another week – but – its FEBUARY!! Did January also seem to just fly past you? I feel like I just blinked and its over. February always excites me, not only because its the month we all acknowledge and celebrate LOVE, but because its when we all really seem to settle into the new year, and start getting on with things. January carries an odd energy with it, an energy of excitement but loads of apprehension. February leaves those behind and we seem to get on with doing life.
This week I thought I’d go “back to basics” and am using my good ol trusty basic tarot deck. Its the Gilded Tarot and its what I call my working deck. Back in the day when I still used the cards for my readings, this was the deck that was used every single day.
So lets jump straight in and look at what energy we have to deal with for this coming week.
The Tower brings a message of change, of adapting what we have to suit our needs better. It tells us that nothing is perfect and if something isn’t perfect, we shouldn’t accept it as being so. When cracks start to show, it’s a sign that something is going to give in. Be ready for that and go with the flow of it. Don’t resist because then you will cause more harm to yourself than is necessary. Sometimes when a wall collapses we are able to see the beautiful oasis which was just on the other side, hidden by the wall. So don’t get too emotionally upset over the wall – look to see what treasures its revealing to you now. Keywords: Sudden change, Chaos, Release, Rebuild
This week is a week for truth and accountability. Justice will be given as fairly as possible so just trust in the process. Do whatever you need to and no more, and always present your case as best you can – the rest is out of your hands.
The Death card sounds really scary because we are all afraid of dying… but it does not refer to actual life! It refers to situations, circumstances and areas of our life which are stagnant, harsh, ugly and generally no longer serving us well. We want these to change, to die, to end, to stop!! Don’t we? Nothing can last forever in a single form, shape or way. We as humans are forever evolving and so must our situations and circumstances. Death is telling you to let go of whatever is no longer working in your life to make way for new. Its time to allow fresh new opportunities, people, circumstances to enter into your life. Keywords: Ending, Change, Rebirth, Fresh Start
The Devil brings temptation, greed, lust, and addictions. Be aware of your reactions to situations and circumstances this week and constantly check that you are not allowing your emotions to lead you. Try to keep a balance between want and need. Try to keep a balance between necessary and unnecessary. You may also find yourself needing to keep a big secret or be involved in secret dealings. Be mindful and aware of your responses this week.
Page of Cups tells us that we are not feeling very emotionally confident at the moment. Emotions are running high, and even if you are feeling excited and confident, courage is lacking. You may also be a little bit sensitive right now. Realise that this is just part of the learning and the lesson is going well. You are understanding as you should be and You are free to experience without worry about failure. Keywords: Emotional, Sensitive, Kindness to self and others, Inspiration, Intimacy, Curiosity
The Fool brings new opportunities, new possibilities and new adventures your way. Your past is not affecting you and you are ready to take a giant leap into the glorious unknown that waits for you. This could be a new job, relationship, partnership, hobby, mindset or anything. The timing is perfect for you and you just need to take that first step and the rest will unfold as it needs to. But don’t rush into everything without keeping a clear head…. Caution is always required – think before you leap!
5 of Pentacles tells you that sometimes going without is the best thing for you. You may find yourself wanting or needing more this week, but don’t go rushing out to replenish your stocks or your emotions. Rather sit patiently and wait out the storm. You will be fine, you will survive it. The struggles you may be facing are very temporary, but could become more permanent if you grab the wrong option. Patience and Caution are needed.
You have a head full of ideas and you need to be paying attention. Get a little notebook and write them all down. Then you can sift through them to find the true gems. Your mind is busy, take control and make it work in your favour – don’t let it become a burden to you.
King of Wands knows exactly what to do, how to do it, and when it should be done. The King is all about delegation and fulfilling the vision. Be authentic and true to yourself, your quest/vision and your goals and you will enjoy success this week. Dont be afraid, nervous, and make sure you don’t show any signs of doubt. Taking control of all you do will lead you to success. Keywords: Leadership, Business, Confidence, Delegation
9 of Swords says you are feeling so alone, like the whole world is against you. You feel as if nobody is there to support you. You are being brave, you are standing firm and you are putting on a brave face, but the truth is, deep within your heart you are feeling alone and almost possibly even abandoned. Please realise that you do not have to do this alone, you just need to ask and many will step forward to help you wherever you need it.
4 of Swords wants you to take it easy this week. Dont go rushing into anything unnecessarily. Rather “sleep on it” this week. Dont let anyone push you into making any commitments you are not 100% confident of. Give yourself a bit of time to just recoup and take it easy.
Page of Swords wants you to slow down and be more prepared. Try to understand exactly what is expected of you before jumping into action. Rather take the time to learn, study and truly understand any situation before you start anything new. Diving straight in will lead to a few bumps and bruises this week.
So however your week pans out, just know that you are loved, supported and that someone cares! You are not alone and there are many who are rooting for you to be happy and successful in everything you do.
With love and blessings,
From me to you,
