Your Weekly Oracle Reading (01.16.2023)
New breakthroughs & deepened relationships.
Happy Monday, loved ones.
I hope this weekend provided you with ample rest, balance, joy and insight. It feels like everyone I’ve spoken to lately, myself included, has been going through some purging and revelations that has taken an emotional toll.
If that’s true for you, continue to show yourself grace, compassion and patience. Don’t worry so much about the “why,” and just allow the energy to move through your body and release.
There’s a lot of new beginnings coming up, so it makes sense that many of us are being pushed to let go of a lot of old and stagnant energy in order to make room for what’s arriving in our reality.
In just a couple of days, Mercury will go direct, and as of January 22, we won’t have any planets in retrograde until April 21. That’s roughly three months of the planets working in your favor, so use this energy to your benefit!
A lot of us have been going through it for a while now. In fact, you may have been on overdrive mentally trying to make sense of how things have been unfolding for you.
With the Nine of Wands here, there have been many sleepless nights filled with anxiety, depressive episodes, isolation, fear, overthinking and more. And it makes sense, because it feels like everything was in disarray with zero clarity in sight.
Luckily, that’s all changing.
We have not one, but two Ace cards in the reading, which are all about new beginnings.
With the Ace of Swords here, you’ll be receiving the clarity you’ve been asking for this week. There’s some sort of breakthrough that is occurring that will help you move forward with confidence and focus. There’s a lot of success with this, so it’s nothing to fear!
Additionally, with the Ace of Cups, there’s huge emotional fulfillment. For some of you, this breakthrough has to do with a love offer.
There’s a new relationship or partnership on the horizon that is deepening in some way. That can be taking the next step in your relationship (a proposal for some) or simply allowing yourselves to access a stronger sense of intimacy between you.
There’s a lot of compassion and creativity within this connection, and perhaps this person has awaken you to the depth of your heart in ways that no one else has. This is a spiritually guided connection that has been in the works for much longer than you realize.
Still, the quick change in energy may catch you off guard and tempt you to revert to overthinking and trying to find problems so that you can “protect” yourself, which is really just a defense mechanism that you’ve used to prevent yourself from allowing this type of deep intimacy to manifest.
Don’t allow old behaviors and patterns to leak through. It’s understandable to be weary. You’re exhausted. You’ve experienced so many hurdles, plot twists, disappointments and let downs. However, don’t forget that you’ve been asking for this.
There’s a reason you’ve continued to be resilient and persevered through all the bullshit you’ve experienced, and that reason is the inner knowing that what you’ve been asking for is yours, so don’t push it away once it gets close out of fear.
Allow this offering and manifestation to enter your life. Stay grounded, loyal and faithful to your divine guidance. Lead with love, and if fear trickles in (which it probably will), then do it scared.
However, for some of you, this anxiety and fear may be stemming from having to make a choice between two possible routes. Take your time in making this decision. Be true to yourself and your needs, and make sure that you’re considering what is most aligned for you moving forward.
In other words, trust your gut.
There’s Gemini energy here (specifically in Mars), as well as air energy (Gemini, Aquarius, Libra) and water energy (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio), so these placements may be significant for you or someone else connected to this reading as additional confirmation, but they don’t have to be.
The numerology of this reading is 11. In numerology, 11 is “at one with the Universe. It is open to vast spiritual concepts and the presence of a greater power. It is a channel for truth and answers to reach us and help us on our way. This Master Number's vision is crystal clear and it sees with a breadth that others cannot.”
