Weekly Guidance 1/16 – 1/22

Picture

We have peace and mental clarity at the beginning of the week with the 4 of Swords.

This would be a good time to simplify and organize your life and your thoughts.

Spend some time in prayer/meditation, and purifying and cleansing your sacred space.  Bring order to chaos.

With the Sun moving into Aquarius in the middle of the week, we strive toward Higher Ideals.

The Ace of Pentacles comes in and advises us to start from where we are.

What can we offer with what we have now, to participate and be in the flow of life?  We all have something that we can offer.

With the Wheel of Fortune at the end of the week, we know that we can always handle whatever comes our way. 

Life will never give you something you’re not prepared for, unless it’s a catalyst for change, or to nudge you in a certain direction.

Open up to opportunities that come your way.

Try new things, and if you feel like you’re not ready, practice until you are.

Sometimes we also need to start before we’re ready, and then we have a remembrance of what we’re doing as we’re doing it.

We’re never done learning and experiencing.

Day after day, moment after moment, there’s still another level of learning, uncovering, discovering, clearing, maturing, purifying, etc.

Whatever it is, we’re always evolving, we’re always changing, and there is never an end, we’re never done.

That’s why on the Wheel, the Tarot ends and beings with a T, because endings and beginnings go hand in hand.

Weekly Reading 1/9 – 1/15

Picture

The Queen of Wands at the beginning of the week means that we are very busy with social activities and taking care of business.

But it’s fun for us and we enjoy it and we’re able to take care everything very easily.

With the Queen of Cups in the middle of the week we have emotional stability.

Happiness peace, calm, and tranquility.

We’re easily able to handle emotional situations.

At the end of the week we have the Two of Swords, which can be like being at a crossroads or some sort of stalemate where we can’t really see the future or the next step.

This card means that we need to rely on our mental powers and the combined power of our logic and intuition to make a decision.

Sometimes if we put off making a decision for too long the universe will make a choice for us.

Participating in the flow of life means that sometimes we must decide – even if it may not be the right decision it’s at least better than making no decision at all.

If things feel stuck, stagnant, or blocked, tune in to your subconscious and find out what may be slowing you down.  This will help to find out how to get the ball rolling again.

Weekly Reading January 2nd – 8th

Picture

The World kicks of the week with a sense of accomplishment and the feeling of coming full circle.

We are seeing the bigger picture of our lives.

With the World card, we have an opportunity to complete cycles so we don’t have to keep repeating them.

The 5 of Cups shows up, which represents emotions, particularly grief, regret, disappointment, isolation, guilt, apathy, etc.

Whenever a major change is happening, we need to acknowledge the transformation and shedding of the past to fully move forward without emotional baggage weighing us down.

That may mean taking a moment to first know where you’ve been and where you’re going, and finding out if there’s a part of you that feels left behind, forgotten, unsure, uncomfortable, etc.

Thank that part of you for what it’s taught you in the past and for being there for you when you needed it.

Let that part of you know that it’s ok, and it’s safe to come along for the ride in your new plans/new approach to life/ different changes you’re experiencing.

The 3 of Cups is about feeling supported and included by a like-minded community, as opposed to the rejection of the 5 of Cups.

Always being true to yourself may sometimes leave you feeling outcast.

More often than not, being true to yourself will actually inspire those around you and attract other people who are on the same wavelength.

Now, you’re stronger than ever because you’ve survived so much and remained true to yourself, so you’re invincible to shine your light.

Weekly Guidance 12/26 – 1/1

Picture

A very interesting week lies ahead of us.

First we have the Wheel of Fortune, which means that we are at a turning point.

This can be sort of a wild card which brings the unexpected.  It’s up to us to use what we get for our greatest good and highest potential.

At times when there are big changes happening in our lives, or a turning of the season, it can be even more important to stay centered.

Connect with what grounds us – whether that is our meditative practice or our family…whatever makes us feel at home.

It’s important to get back to our true selves after being pulled in different directions so we don’t lose our sense of inner navigation.

Judgement comes in to remind us that we all have an inner calling, special purpose, and reason for being here…

…and your individual life is intimately connected to all of life.

Your personal wellbeing influences the whole of humanity and the world.

Can you imagine if every single person in the world was making choices and decisions out of their greatest good in every single moment?

Individuals wouldn’t be able to consciously do harm to another because it’s actually harming themselves.  Everything we do to and for ourselves has a ripple effect.

The 6 of Cups comes in and the end of the week reminding us to not take things too seriously, and of the importance of our inner child.

Children are so innocent and pure and need guidance and direction and love, not being controlled or manipulated.   Please treat yourself and the children in your life with love and respect.

Children need adults in their lives who are willing to be a great example for them of how to live a life with integrity and compassion, and purpose and brilliance.

This is also a reminder to enjoy the simple things in life and take pleasure in simple beautiful moments.

Each moment is unique and will never happen again in the same way.

That doesn’t mean we must hold on to it or fight against change, because good things are always coming and new moments will happen…

…but it does mean we just relax into what’s happening right now and don’t take it for granted.

Do something playful for yourself this weekend.

-Nora

Weekly Guidance 12/19 – 12/25

Picture

There is a shift in energy in this week as Mercury goes retrograde and the Winter Solstice is on Wednesday.

This is the time to relax and unwind and bring cycles and projects to completion.

Tie up any loose ends and finish what you have started in the past couple of weeks.

Writing things down can help us stay organized during a Mercury retrograde cycle.

The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year and from this point on the lights starts to increase.

It’s a good time for internal reflection.

There may be some thoughts or issues that come up around your personal identity in the way that you see yourself and your roles in the world.

Know that you don’t have to define yourself.  

It’s OK to be with pure essence of your soul without having to place any demands or expectations on it.

Connect yourself back to your state of pure awareness.

Suggested Meditation:

Light a tealight candle and burn some sage or incense.

Sit in a meditative position, breathing deeply.

Connect through your inner eye to the heart of the Cosmic mother.

You may sense this as a black space that is endlessly expansive.

You may feel that the boundaries of your body dissolve, and feel around you an endless space.

This is a completely natural place to be as it is the source of all creation.

It is safe and nurturing for your spirit.

Allow yourself to be silent in this place for 10 to 20 minutes.

Weekly Guidance 12/12 – 12/18

Picture

In the beginning of the week we have the 3 of Pentacles, which is about working together towards a common goal.

When working together as a team, the goal of the team must be more important than any individual’s motive.  With all things in life you need a balance, so you also must make sure that everything is fair, and no one is being taken advantage of.

To have an effective team, there must be clarity.  Everyone must know their part.  This requires communication which takes us to…

The 3 of Swords in the middle of the week.  This is about using logic over emotion.

If you find yourself in the midst of a highly charged emotional atmosphere, we can clear the storm by using logic to sort through our emotions.

The most sensible and logical solution to a problem may not be the most immediately emotionally satisfying. 

However, if we let our emotions overtake us and ignore our logic…this can lead to us becoming soft, lazy, self-serving, complacent.

This bring us to the 9 of Cups.

Using logic over emotion and cooperating with your community will ultimately bring a deeper sense of emotional fulfillment.

Don’t fool yourself into thinking you should only do things that make you feel good. 

Cliché statements like “follow your heart” and “if it feels good, do it, if it doesn’t, don’t” may sometimes accurately apply in our lives…

But they can also be dangerous if we don’t critically analyze our own motivations and why something makes us feel good.

For example, stepping into our Highest Potential may mean doing something that is extremely challenging. 

But if you choose to instead do what feels best, you could miss out on an opportunity for growth, learning and experience. 

Not only that, but if you could’ve benefited others by making a different choice, then you’re actually robbing humanity of your gifts.

Working through your difficult emotions and keeping yourself mentally fit will ultimately be more satisfying anyway because you’re fulfilling a deeper need, and that is to participate in life and contribute to society in a way that is useful and helpful in the long term.

Weekly Guidance 9/26 – 10/2

libra

Messages from the archetype of Libra this week:

Do whatever it takes to maintain equilibrium and balance.

Be careful with your thoughts and your word, and take extra care to be very precise.

Taking an extreme point of view to counter another perspective will only get you pulled into a game of tug and war.  Your participation isn’t necessary.

A Dove of Peace with an Olive Branch came through for us this week as a messenger to be a peace bringer; focus on creating peace. 

Focus on the strengths of Libra, ruled by Venus; love, peace, harmony.

Bring a peacemaker by not letting emotions influence your decisions…taking into consideration fairness, equality, and balance.

Find any area of our lives that are pulling us off balance…

If you feel like your life is already balanced, then just marinating in that perfect balance and equilibrium and being in your true essence.

Cultivating that space of centeredness.

The image of a spinning top came up to show what this is like; it can’t get knocked off its axis but it can get all wobbly.  You’re never going to be able to stop moving, change is the only real constant in our lives. 

Riding the current – less like a wave, more like an electrical current.

Be balanced in all elements – so even though air is the strength this time of year, you still need the qualities of the other elements…

However, there is less of an emphasis of water, but more on air, earth and fire.  (We’ll have plenty of time for Water next month with Scorpio…)

Be very aware of electrical atmosphere; things bring “charged”.

That’s why cultivating this space is so important – so you don’t get pulled in or charged up by your atmosphere; you’re charging yourself up.

Get outside and breathe in fresh air for a while; go for a run, a swim, walk your dog, sit on the earth and get charged with clean fresh life force energy.

This will help move around any stagnant energy, so that you can just be clear and uplifted and energized.

-Nora

Weekly Guidance September 5th – 11th

Picture

Even though there is increased chaos in the world right now, behind every thing there is a presence of peace for knowing the right thing to do in every moment.

The Hermit guides us to go within to our internal compass.  Our inner light will show us the way when we don’t know what to do.

Go to the really silent, still place of peace within you, and you’ll always know the truth.

The 2 of Cups reminds us of the importance of the relationships in our lives.  We really do need each other; to cooperate with each other and listen to each other, and share our hearts and our experiences with each other.

There’s a balance needed between the Hermit and the 2 of Cups.  The Hermit guides us to really know ourselves on the deepest level, tap into our own wisdom and not depend on others to find out what is true.  The 2 of Cups reminds us that we need to come out of our shells and share that wisdom and listen to others sharing their wisdom.

At the end of the week we have the Sun, bringing in a balance of freshness, of innocence and being open to the present moment, to the wisdom of the Hermit.

There is a Hermit within you who is old and wise and has learned much; yet there is also a Sun with you whose innocence,  openness, self expression, and creativity can never be broken or bought.

This is an important part of you that needs to be nurtured and trusted.  Follow your passion, follow your creativity and be open to new experiences with the wisdom of the Hermit.

Also, the contrast of the withdrawn Hermit to the openness of the Sun shows that at times during this week you’ll need to withdraw, and at other times you’ll need to come out of that and be open and vulnerable.  But you can’t be open and vulnerable unless you’ve taken the time to withdraw.  Spend time with yourself, digest and interpret your experiences and your emotions for yourself.  Otherwise you’re just speaking from a place or regurgitating what you’ve been fed.

Know that you are wise!  Listen to your inner Hermit!

-Nora

I have one space open in September for 6 weeks of one on one guidance to transform your life, and explore and deepen your own spirituality.  Email me to set up a free 30 minute discovery session to discuss the possibilities of us working together, including immediate support.

Weekly Guidance 8/22 – 8/28

hh-animals-squirrel-4

We’re at a time of year when things are starting to wind down, balanced with new abilities and latent possibilities becoming activated.  Have fun and play around with it.

Experiment with trying things a different way or continuing with what already works; sorting out what’s been working and what hasn’t.

Balance this with perseverance – you don’t want to give up before you see things come to completion!

We’re passing the peak of the solar time of year and entering an earthy time of year when we can ground ourselves.

Implementing and integrating all that happened over the Summer.

Applying all we’ve learned.

Planning ahead as we wind down the next few months and head into Fall/Winter.

Squirrels are coming through saying it’s time to be resourceful and gather your nuts for Winter  – but still you don’t want to have too many nuts weighing you down so no need to hoard!

Don’t be afraid to let go of what doesn’t work for you.  You’ll know what that is whether it’s a certain project, relationship/friendship, approach, behavior, etc.

Also, squirrels are very social creatures so maybe there will be some opportunities for lighthearted social interactions.

Remember there’s so need to scurry and rush, but still procrastination can make you feel more anxious than just getting things done!

Weekly Guidance August 15th – 21st

digital-clarity-6

This week’s guidance begins with a message from Spider.  There is a very delicate balance of weaving your web and knowing when to take action and knowing when to wait.

You don’t have to fill space in your mind in order to feel intelligent or feel productive.

Empty out your third eye; embrace not knowing.

Why empty out your mind?

Because everything else that fills your mind is a distraction or something extra – not your true self – which is pure awareness.

Knowing your true self on a deeper and deeper level makes everything else that’s not true just fall away, and you become invincible.

It’s important to keep up a diligent spiritual practice.  Even if you don’t do it every day, just having something to return to that re-establishes that still point within you is what keeps your strength and your connection to your true self.

This connection can never really be broken or lost.  We can just become filled with too many extra things in our minds that we forget who we really are…

…and we really are magical powerful creator beings.  We’re here to experience and interact with one another and witness the miracles of our creations and be in awe of our own power.

We’re not meant to struggle, but to live life with joy and ease.

Last week with the Lion’s Gate opening, there may have been some powerful shifts made.

You may experience jumping of timelines as frequent Deja vu, or a sense of being confused at what just happened a moment before, or not knowing exactly what events led up to where you are now.

That’s ok; know that everything that’s being done is for the greatest good of all involved with the changes taking place.

You may be integrating high vibrational frequencies and energies, so take time to ground this into your life.  I recommend connecting with the Earth.  Make skin contact with the Earth; especially if you can get your hands and feet on some grass, dirt, mud, or sand.  This will be electrically charging for your body, which will benefit you on all levels of your being.

Lastly, take some time to “create space for your higher guidance to speak to you”.  That was an angelic message that I got first thing this morning and I was told that each person who reads this will instinctively know what that means for them individually.

Take it easy and integrate this week!  Be delicate with yourself and do what nourishes and relaxes you.
