Happy Friday! Today’s tarot card is the Ace of Cups. Abundance, good feelings and joy will be in large supply for you today as you enjoy good times with friends and family.

You may be feeling extra social today and others will be drawn to your natural enthusiasm and upbeat attitude. Take stock of everything in your life that you enjoy and that brings you happiness, as this will put you in an even better mood.

Today is the perfect day to meet new people or join a social group of some kind. Since the Ace of Cups is a card of beginnings, as all Aces are, this suggests that you will have an easy time forming new friendships today and going into the weekend.

The other message I got with this card was that it is really important to foster emotional connections with others today. Be heart centered in your communications with those around you and don’t be afraid to show your emotions, particularly when expressing gratitude and appreciation for someone in your life.

Daily Oracle Card for Thursday ~ Forest (Breath)

Today’s daily oracle card invites you to explore the calming power of your breath and the grounding energy of the forest.

If you feel stressed today, remember to breathe. Connect to your breath by letting your attention focus solely on your breathing – even just for a minute. Draw your breath deep into your belly and on the exhale, send your energy down your legs and into the ground.

With every inhale, your body is in receptive mode and then switches to a more outward giving mode on the exhale. Your ability to take deep, nourishing breaths is tied to your ability to receive guidance and inspiration from your higher self.

The exhale is related to how well you are able to express that guidance and inspiration and manifest your visions in the physical world. So spend time connecting with your breath and work towards improving how you breathe, as your breathing effects your overall health and happiness.

 

Daily Tarot Card for Wednesday ~ The Creator

Today’s tarot card, The Creator, is from the Osho Zen Tarot. Creativity will come into your life in full force today, so look out! That creative spark within you wants a chance to come out and shine.

This will feel wonderful if you are ready to express your creativity and take action in creating what you envision. But if you are fearful in any way, it can feel frustrating!

To help process this ever-increasing energy within you, ask yourself these questions:

1) If there were no limits, what would you want to create?
2) What can you create today or this week that would satisfy your creativity?
3) What do I need to do or to let go of in order to feel comfortable expressing myself fully?

The Creator is one of the most confident, powerful cards in the Osho Zen Tarot. He reminds you that you have his power and confidence available to you if you choose to use it!

Oracle Card Reading for Tuesday ~ Let It Go (Quan Yin)

Ascended Masters Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

Today’s oracle card reading turned up the goddess Quan Yin whose message is “let it go.”  If you are feeling stuck, held back or just drained of energy, ask yourself if there is anything you need to let go of.

If you are holding onto any resentment or anger, now is a good time to let that go. When your energy and focus is all tied up in being irritated or upset about past events, you have less time and creativity to spend on creating a rewarding life.

So ask yourself what do you need to do, say or believe in order to let it go and move on? Can you imagine what it would be like to let go of all the old resentments and frustrations?

Letting go of what you tightly cling to today will free up your energy for tomorrow. Lightness of being and inner peace come from your ability to release past hurt and move forward on your path. Today’s oracle card reading urges you to be gentle with yourself as you do this and give yourself the time and nurturing that you need.

Daily Tarot Card for Monday ~ The Wheel of Fortune

The Dream Enchantress Tarot by Marco Nizzoli

The tarot card for today is The Wheel of Fortune and it’s main message is that you are the captain of your own ship. Life is an adventure and you can decide what areas you would like to explore.

Take on an adventurous spirit today and try something just for the fun of it. Do something you have wanted to do for a while, but have been hesitating. Stop worrying about what others will think!

Part of being the captain of your own ship means that at times you will feel all alone on your journey. Some of your major life decisions may be unpopular with family and friends, but it is important to be true to your self and listen intently to the voice of your soul.

Staying centered is an important aspect of The Wheel of Fortune. Your day (and your life) will have it’s ups and downs, but the more you detach from expecting a particular outcome, the freer you will be.

Oracle Card for Sat & Sun ~ “Everything is Well”

Today’s oracle card comes from the Guidance Dogs Oracle Cards. The message today is “everything is well.”

Spend a few moments just saying this to yourself. Close your eyes, let your body relax and repeat the words “everything is well”, noticing how your mind relaxes each time you say it.

The message I get from this card is that the more we repeat this phrase to ourselves, the easier it will be to ground our energy and feel calm and stable. So if you are feeling stressed, anxious and scattered, try the above exercise.

This weekend will be all about staying grounded, calm and contented, regardless of what we are doing. You may find yourself in a kayak gliding silently along the bay of a quiet inlet or you may be in the middle of a tumultous family dinner, but when you realize that all is well and everything is as it should be, you will immediately feel at peace.

Daily Tarot Card for Friday ~ Experiencing

The message of today’s tarot card, which is from the Osho Zen Tarot, is that life is about experiencing the journey – not the destination!

If you go out for a walk in nature today, make sure you stop and observe the stillness of the rocks and trees. Take the time to connect with your surroundings and feel the energy that radiates from all living things.

The woman in this card appears to be one with the tree, her glowing aura merging with the aura of the tree. She is fully enjoying the present moment and has managed to slip out of her mind and into the radiant energy of the present.

Today, try being as present as you can be, particularly when talking with others. Instead of trying to analyze another’s words, try feeling them. Try sensing the energy of the other person. This sounds crazy because we are so used to communicating on a mental level and not an energy level. When you are having a conversation with someone today, try being fully present with them, not only listening to what they say but sensing how they feel as well.

Goals ~ Daily Oracle Card for Thursday

Self-Care Cards by Cheryl Richardson

“Goals” are the theme of today’s daily oracle card and the back of this card says “set a goal, write it down, and release the outcome. Small steps make a big difference.”

I love that message! If you want to know how to turn your dreams into reality, the first step is creating goals for yourself. The act of setting a goal and writing it down makes you see it as something that is possible. This act releases your desires out into the universe and enhances the likelihood that they will return in the form of physical reality.

However, this daily oracle card warns you not to stay stuck in the fantasy, day dreaming phase for too long. Once your goal has been written down, see if you can come up with a small action step each week that will bring you closer to your goal. This might entail creating smaller goals that help you eventually achieve your bigger goal. Here is a small worksheet to get you started:


1) My main goal is to: ________________________________________________________________

________________________________________________________________

2) My goal for this month (that will bring me closer to my main goal) is: ________________________________________________________________

________________________________________________________________

3) What I can do this week (to bring me closer to my monthly goal): ________________________________________________________________

________________________________________________________________

4) What will help me achieve my action step this week?

Ten of Swords ~ Tarot Reading for Wednesday

ten of swords tarot card
The Dream Enchantress Tarot by Marco Nizzoli

Today’s Tarot card, Ten of Swords, asks the question what happens after you have slayed all your dragons? What will be left for you to focus on?

Sometimes our “problems” become a big part of who we are and we can harbor a secret fear that life will be boring and empty once all the drama has ended. Conflict isn’t just stressful – it can also be exciting and entertaining. Drama can definitely add a certain spiciness to life!

So when you say that you “don’t want anymore drama”, are you being completely honest with yourself?

Another theme I get from this card is that we are all ONE, and we are all deeply connected to each other. So if we hurt, despise or attack someone else, we are also doing this to a part of ourselves. The dragon in this card represents the Shadow Self, the aspect of our self that we deny and repress. When we recognize this aspect in others, we seek to destroy or criticize them.

In this way, the “drama” that we create in our lives is often a way for us to engage with our shadow aspects in the hope that they will eventually be healed. This Ten of Swords tarot card suggests that instead of slaying your dragon, make friends with it and notice how it begins to transform your life!

 

Goddess Oracle Card for Tuesday ~ Aeracura

Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

Today’s Goddess Oracle Card is “Aeracura: Blossoming,” and it says, “You are just getting started, so have patience with yourself and the process, and do not give up.”

The strongest message I got when I looked at this card was not to hold off on doing something just because you will not be perfect or the best at it. It is perfectly okay to be average (or even terrible) at something, especially if you are just learning it.

Do not wait to be perfect to get out there and do something – do it now! You will never be good at anything if you do not take a risk and try something outside of your comfort zone.

The other vibe I get with this Goddess Oracle Card is that you are just beginning to blossom into a new phase in your life – a freer, more creative phase. Sometimes there can be self doubt and other challenges in the beginning, but rest assured that you will build more confidence and grace over time.
