Your Weekly Oracle Reading (01.03.2022)
Happy New Year!
Happy Monday and Happy New Year, friends!
I hope you had a smooth transition to 2022 this last week, as I know energies have been very unpredictable and intense.
Before we get into this week’s reading, I just want to take a moment to acknowledge something that comes up a lot at the top of the year.
There’s always this (sometimes unconscious) sense of pressure with the new year. What are my resolutions? What goals do I want to accomplish? What haven’t I crossed off my list yet? While this is a very normal and understandable feeling, and not necessarily an unhealthy one, I hope that instead of forcing yourself to fit a box of what you think you should be doing, you’re staying true to who you are.
Isn’t that what all of this work has been about?
If you don’t have any resolutions, that’s OK. If there are goals that fell off last year that you want to try again, that’s OK. If you’re only goal right now is to live and experience some joy, that’s more than OK.
Please don’t get caught up in this construct if it’s not serving you. The idea that we have one year to accomplish these elaborate goals isn’t true. You have a lifetime to experience whatever it is you wish, so by all means, move in the direction that calls to you, but don’t limit yourself or carry any unnecessary expectations. We deal with that enough already.
Now, on to the reading for this week, which is beautiful!
You may have heard through various astrology readings and predictions that the energy of 2022 is much greater than what we’ve been experiencing. And yes, I get that can be difficult to believe given what we’ve all gone through, but maybe you’ve even noticed an energy shift.
There’s something in the air, and the cards confirm it.
If you haven’t already, the cards point to some exciting opportunities this week. The Material Harvest card is all about your physical reality. It’s time to see the reap what you’ve sown. You’ve done the work, you’ve learned the lessons, the cycles are complete, and now, you’re going to see the rewards in your material world.
Intuitively, this feels like some great job opportunities, investment opportunities and collaborative projects. Something creative is being birthed and it’s going to have a triumphant outcome.
(If you haven’t done the Capricorn New Moon ritual yet, I highly recommend. You still have time.)
In general, this reading also tells me that your heart is your ultimate compass. In other words, when you follow your heart’s true desire (whether that be a project, a relationship, a destination, etc.) you will be met with victory, because you’re being true to yourself.
Remember, a lot of the work we’ve done over this last year specifically was breaking out of unhealthy mental patterns. We’ve done a lot of heart chakra healing in order to even hear what its telling us, so follow it. It won’t lead you astray.
When I see material abundance coming in, it also tells me that there’s alignment internally, too. Especially with the Heart Chakra card here. Because, sure, you can come across a job offer that pays a shitload of money, but if it doesn’t make you happy or align with your values, it won’t fulfill you.
This feels like alignment on all fronts. And that might be challenging for some of you. It’s testing your scarcity mindset. Are you willing to take whatever you can get out of fear? Or will you stay true to what you know you deserve?
The numerology of this reading is 2. The number 2 is known as a supreme feminine force, one that represents both grace and power. It’s also the High Priestess in tarot. It is cooperative, always aiming to bring peace and balance back to a relationship or situation. The number 2 also has the strongest intuition.
So, again, will you follow your gut or your fear?

In other news, Instagram is continuing to shadow ban your girl, and I couldn’t tell you why. But, I’m taking this as a sign to begin configuring community elsewhere. I’m going to meditate on this.
