Monday 12 to Sunday 18 August 2019
This week’s reading was inspired by images from the Chrysalis Tarot by Toney Brooks. The card I’ve randomly chosen for the overall theme this week relates to taking action. It is time to trust yourself and have confidence in your abilities. As you move forward with confidence you will attract like-minded others, resources and experiences required to help you reach your destination. Without action however, you will remain where you are. If you are happy where you are, great, but if not then this week take at least one step forward towards your goals.
Image 1: Set the wheels in motion
This week the angels encourage you to set your course of action and then set the wheels in motion so that you start making your way towards your desired destination. If the course you have been on has not given you the joy you thought it would then now is the time for change. It is never too late to change direction and perfectly fine for you to change your mind. Don’t get stuck in your ways or let your fears hold you hostage or you may find it very difficult to get moving again when the time comes. Although there are practical steps for you to take to help you to get to where you are going there are also some spiritual tools and practices you can bring in to help you. Draw upon your inner mystic and allow intention and magic to infuse in all that you do. Create a sacred ritual or spell, draw upon nature, and listen from within to know what to do and when to do it.
Image 2: Take a leap of faith
This week the angels guide you to be bold, brave and take a leap of faith. You can continue to stay where you are and think through the myriad of options and choices in front of you or you can take a leap of faith and stride forward with confidence. Perhaps your leap of faith will pay off, perhaps it won’t but isn’t it better to know rather than be left wondering? If you trust your intuition and your instincts it will be unlikely for you to fall as both are guiding you strongly this week. In order to move forward you need to be willing to leave behind some part of the past. That doesn’t mean that you have to forget but rather that your heart is open to experience and enjoy new things. Additionally, you may find it helpful to express yourself truthfully from the heart this week too. Don’t hold back or hold in what needs to be said, just find a diplomatic and tactful way to say it.
Image 3: Out with the old in with the new
This week the angels herald an opportunity to release and let go of something that has a stronghold on you so that you can allow space for something new to enter your life. This may come as an opportunity for you to take up or it may come as something that you have no choice or control over. However it shows up, it is a blessing for you. Although it may not necessarily feel that way to begin with. There may be some fear about moving forward, about stepping out of your comfort zone, about creating change, but there is nothing to be frightened of. In fact, what is frightening is staying where you are and repeating old patterns over and over again. Moving forward, creating change and allowing new opportunities will usher in positive energy for you and help to spring you forward in meaningful ways. Leave behind the fog of illusion and step bravely into your truth.
Image 4: Remembering where you came from
This week the angels bring forth a powerful message to remember where you have come from. Now this may relate to how far you have come in life and how much you have grown from your experiences. It may relate to your family roots, and if it does then don’t be surprised to see family issues popping up this week. You may have an opportunity to grow closer to someone you love or for you to heal broken ties through reconciliation or forgiveness. These don’t necessarily have to be in the here and now, they could relate to past and generational beliefs, patterns and behaviours. This message may also relate to you remembering beyond your physical roots and connecting with where you originated from; spirit – and connecting back in with this energy. Whatever it relates to just remember that you are here to be you and live your life. The connection that binds you to spirit and to family will always be there but you have your own free to make choices in this lifetime.
