Oracle Card for Monday ~ Unbelieving the Limiting Myths

faery tales
Wild Wisdom of the Faery by Lucy Cavendish

Today’s card is Faery Tales and the message is all about “letting go, detachment, moving on.”

You are coming out of a sleepy state where you were deeply enmeshed in an illusion of how things were supposed to be.

This may refer to your beliefs about what a romantic relationship should be like (ie: being rescued by a Prince Charming) or even how you thought your life would turn out.

Reality doesn’t match up to the story you have been telling yourself, and thank god for that! Reality, in many ways, is actually much better – its more fluid, interesting and free.

So don’t be afraid to look closely at the “faery tales” you tell yourself. In many ways they only serve to keep you feeling stuck and un-free in your life. When you let go of them, you start to have way more fun!

In the comments below, tell me what myth you have bought into in the past, which may or may not have served you well…

Daily Tarot Reading for Sat & Sun ~ Queen of Fire!

Queen of Fire Angel Tarot
Angel Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue

The Queen of Fire is the weekend card, which ensures that your weekend will be full of fun and excitement. I get such a strong feeling with this card that I think its influence will be felt all week long.

Now is the perfect time to tap into your naturally confident and warm sides. People will find you exceptionally charismatic and bold this weekend, so don’t hold back!

If you are doing anything social, don’t waste time with boring small talk, instead ask people what you really want to know and express yourself without overly censoring and worrying about others opinions of you.

The Queen of Fire is daring, passionate and has a cheeky sense of humor. Her fierce independence may intimidate some, but she has a blast no mater where she goes and really lives life to the fullest. If you embody this Queen you are guaranteed to have more fun this weekend!

This weekend is the perfect time to start new art projects (particularly ones that my be a bit risque or “artsy fartsy” in nature) and to get your career goals in order. The caption on this card says “stretch your wings and fly! Don’t underestimate yourself. Assert your independence and creativity.”

How will you assert your independence and creativity this weekend?

Daily Tarot Reading for Friday ~ Silence

osho zen tarot silence
Silence from the Osho Zen Tarot

Silence and peacefulness come when we give up trying to control everything and make things happen – even for just a moment.

This card invites you to let go of anything that is bothering you and trust that everything is unfolding exactly as it should. When you let go, even just a little bit, you allow your life to flow naturally and this is when magical things can happen!

When you let your mind become calm and clear, like the surface of a calm lake, you create a space in your life, almost like a pause, in which you can either turn your gaze inward or just enjoy being yourself and being alive.

Affirmation for today: Everything is unfolding exactly as it should

When you say this affirmation to yourself, really believe it and notice what happens to you. Do you physically relax? Do you feel lighter and more free?

Daily Tarot Reading for Thursday ~ The Hermit

Tarot of the Pagan Cats The Hermit
The Hermit from The Tarot of the Pagan Cats

You are a journeyer on the path of life and The Hermit comes to tell you that only the light of your own consciousness will show you the way.

No one else can fix your problems or make you become enlightened – this is something you must do for yourself. We are so used to giving away our power to an outside authority and accepting others rules that listening to our higher self and following our own rules can feel foreign to us.

I feel like this card has two messages today. The first is for those who have made their own paths and have chosen not to take the well traveled ones that society has laid out for us. Like the cat in the picture, you are an independent soul. Perhaps you have chosen not to marry or have children, or you are self employed in what others would consider an unusual profession, or you just feel like you don’t really “get” most people and the way they live their lives. You are here to inspire others – to shine a light on what was once darkness and to be living proof that happiness is created from within. You may not realize it yet, but you are forging a path for others to follow many years from now.

The second message is for those who feel drained and overwhelmed by all the activity and social interactions in their lives right now. It is time to retreat and spend time alone. Meditate, go for nature walks, don’t answer the phone or the door and take a break from email and the internet. This will renew your spirit and give you a fresh, clear perspective on life.

Daily Tarot Reading for Wednesday ~ Three of Discs

The Intuitive Tarot by Cilla Conway

The Three of Discs is all about meaningful work. Everyone has a purpose in life and when you are fully aligned with your purpose and working toward a greater vision, you feel alive, energized and as if you are in the right place at the right time doing what you are meant to do.

If you feel like you are living your purpose, this card comes as a confirmation, letting you know that all your hard work is paying off.

However, if you feel like you are still struggling to find meaningful work, ask yourself these questions: (1) If I had all of the money I could dream of and didn’t need to worry about finances, what would I do with my life? (2) If I discovered that I only had one year to live, how would I spend it?

These two questions get to the heart of what is truly important to you and might give you some ideas as to how you may create meaningful work for yourself. Then ask yourself this third question: (3) What is one small thing I can do today that would bring me closer to living my purpose?

Daily Oracle Reading for Tuesday ~ Write

Ascended Masters Oracle by Doreen Virtue
Ascended Masters Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

The ancient Egyptian god Thoth was said to be the inventor of the written and spoken word. The ability to communicate effectively and to express oneself through writing will be an important aspect of today.

You will have an increased ability to create exceptional written work today, so if you love to write, make sure you make a writing date with yourself.

Written words can also be very powerful when it comes to manifesting your dreams and goals. Write down what you intend to create, even if you feel like you are writing fiction. Getting your goals down on paper will give you that extra push you need to get the ball rolling.

Since Thoth is also a moon god and the moon is in it’s waxing phase, now is the perfect time to put your goals and dreams on paper. Make a separate column for smaller, short term goals and bigger, long term goals. You can either put the paper somewhere visible, like your fridge or you can tuck it away somewhere and then look at it a couple of months from now. You will probably be shocked at how many of the goals you will have achieved.

Daily Tarot Reading for Monday ~ Ten of Wands

Happy Monday everyone!

Today the Ten of Wands comes to us as a gentle reminder not to take on too much this week. You may be tempted today to take on a list of projects and duties, all in the name of helping others and getting things done, but this can leave you feeling bogged down and stressed out.

Be realistic in what you think you can achieve this week. You can be most productive if you prioritize and choose the most pressing issues to deal with first today. Make sure you delegate some tasks to others – you cannot be expected to do it all!

The most important thing to do today will be saying “NO” to others and being able to feel good (not guilty) about it. A friend may request your help with something that you really don’t want to do. It is okay to say no, as you may end up resenting your friend (and yourself) if you agree to something that will only put more stress on you right now.

Make sure you get a little “me time” tonight. Enjoy a hot bath with candles and make yourself some nice tea or hot chocolate while you curl up on the couch with a good book.

Daily Tarot Reading for Sat & Sun ~ Medicine Woman

Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue

This weekend is all about healing and being open to the powerful energies that are available to us right now.

Being a channel for energy means that you do not have to struggle or strive, but just sit back, relax and remain open. Let healing energy flow through you and re-energize your system.

Sit for a few minutes and visualize a gentle rainstorm of healing energy wash over you. Intend for this energy to wash away any negative, heavy energies so that your most powerful self can emerge.

This weekend is a great time to do activities that make you feel empowered, strong and in the flow of life – such as dancing, running or swimming in the ocean at night.

Daily Tarot Reading for Friday ~ Peace

Self Care Cards by Cheryl Richardson

The back of this card says “Embrace your confusion. Let there be peace in not knowing all the answers.”

The message I got while meditating on this card was that finding peace is not dependent on everything in our lives being perfect. Our challenge is to find peacefulness, no matter what is going on around us.

So many times we tell ourselves that we cannot be at peace until we have it all figured out....then we can relax and be happy. But this is a recipe for misery, as the nature of life is to always be in flux and change.

The other phrase that popped into my head when I read this card was that we don’t need to find peace because it is already within us. Instead, focus today on letting go of all the crap that gets in the way of you being at peace. Don’t worry about the future and don’t waste any time milling over the past – live in the NOW!!!

Daily Tarot Reading for Thursday ~ Courage

Courage from the Osho Zen Tarot

Courage, also known as “Strength” in most tarot decks, has made a second appearance this week! You may recall that Tuesday’s card was Strength from the Angel Tarot deck. This makes today’s message even stronger.

Today is about growing out of our challenges and celebrating just how far we’ve come in the past year. Think about all that you have achieved in the last twelve months and how much stronger, wiser and more confident you are.

If you are in a difficult time right now, look for ways to grow from your situation. Although sometimes it won’t be clear until after you are out of it and in a more positive phase.

If you are feeling courageous and joyful, make sure you radiate that positive energy today. Others around you will be effected by it and perhaps even inspired by how you live your life. Don’t hesitate to offer support and encouragement to someone close to you who needs a confidence boost.

Courage is being willing to rise above any situation and to come out of it a stronger, more radiant person.
