Your Weekly Oracle Reading (07.12.2021)
The pain was a set-up to finding your greatness.
And we’re back for another week on this plant called Earth. Happy to cross paths with you once more.
You might notice that these cards are different than what you’re used to. I decided to switch things up a little and use my new Psychic Tarot Oracle deck for this week’s energy forecast.
As we come off the heels of this Cancer New Moon, you may be feeling a sense of relief after some emotional bouts this weekend. Of course, these energies hit everyone differently, but with a Cancer New Moon in Cancer season, you’re bound to find yourself reaching for Kleenex at least once.
If you tuned in to my New Moon reading on Friday evening, then you know this continuous rollercoaster of emotion is not for nothing. I say that often, but it’s true. The cards reminded us that the work we’re doing is paying off and to keep our focus on the big picture, even when it doesn’t make sense.
I feel a very similar sentiment with these cards, too.
There was some sort of deception and/or envy that sparked the journey you’re on now. Perhaps it was a blow-up with a lover, or someone you thought you could trust. I can feel the anger and resentment that was carried for quite some type due to this situation.
While this form of betrayal cuts deep, and its effects are completely understandable, it was also the catalyst to the healing that you’ve been doing thus far.
We’ve talked about karmic contracts and energetic agreements before, and this feels very aligned with that notion. The cards suggest that whatever deception you’ve faced was what helped propel you to where you’re at now—it put you in a state of solitude which facilitated your heightened awareness and inner wisdom. It forced you to really take a look at yourself and your life in a radical way, and for that reason alone, we can find triumph in tragedy.
The work you’ve been doing is helping you build a solid foundation for your future. Who’s to say if that would’ve been the case without the hurt that ensued? How would you know where to find the light if you weren’t stuck in darkness?
Again, as always, take what resonates and leave what doesn’t.
Something else I noticed that I feel is worth pointing out are the images on the Wisdom and Foundations & Achievements cards. Both show a family of three, however on the Wisdom card, they don’t seem to be doing too well, and on the Foundations & Achievements card, there’s a complete shift. What changed? They were given the gift of insight.
It’s hard to know what you’re settling for when you don’t know what you’re missing. Trust that the difficult moments were (and still are) setting you up for much more than you were allowing for yourself.
Divine Light Council is holding our first Los Angeles event next month on August 8!
We’ll be celebrating the 8/8 Lion’s Gate Portal with a focus on healing the solar plexus chakra through a variety of experiences. I will be doing my usual collective reading, and for the first time, will also be conducting a live Reiki experience.
Additionally, if you or someone you know owns a spiritually based business and would like the opportunity to be a vendor at the event, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last, but certainly not least, I still have some availability for Reiki clients in July. For an overview of my offerings, click here. To book, email email@example.com.
As always, take care of yourself and have a beautiful week.
