I’ve been really struggling with energies around my work and money recently, most specifically in trying to balance supporting myself and my family and building our future together with the truthfully somewhat unstable income of working from home and doing spiritually focused work.
As a chronically ill person dealing with fatigue, I also really struggle at times to love myself and feel worthy and useful even when I’m spending a lot of time sleeping or resting.
My dear friend @some_chickweed recently passed along wisdom from her friend that really struck me -
‘When we need rest to work, the rest IS the work’
I have these periods where I feel desperate to provide something more than I am, always a somewhat nebulous ‘more’, and in those times I think I should be able to find a ‘regular job’ and do that. I’ve done it before, and I already know the way it slowly crushes energy from me until I spend my free time in bed or sick, or sick AND in bed. I already know the way that not being of service makes me feel as though my life is leaking out of my body, and how I fall into depression when it feels like I can’t make a difference.
I decided to sit down with my new oracle deck and delve in for guidance.
What is my gift to receive?
Intuitive Wisdom - Deeply held knowing
The knowing within me is a gift. Going against the clarity within me isn’t going to yield positive results, that inner knowing is a signpost, and it would basically be stubbornness to see the signpost and purposefully walk in the opposite direction. The goal, in this case doing meaningful work that also provides stability, might seem far away, like the moon in the dark sky, but it’s power is such that the goal moves me into alignment as easily as the moon moves the sea in its tides. My blood is the sea, it’s tides carry me.

Take some time to recognize what is draining you. Dig deep to learn from your experiences and move past what no longer serves you. Pay attention to the signs that the universe is sending you. Understand that every encounter in life is meaningful in its own unique way even if it’s not a positive one💜
Ace of cups on this dreary, rainy day. This card certainly makes the day look much brighter! Fulfillment, perfection, joy. Oracle today is intuition, this tells me to trust my gut feelings and look below the surface, there is more going on than meets the eye. Affirmation is "What I feel is valid, I trust my inner voice". Plants are the divine lotus and desert thorn apple.
Tonight at 10:15pm the sun moves from sensual Taurus into versatile Gemini! Gemini people are curious, and rule communication. They tend to know the strangest of the things, and IF they don’t have the answer they know where to get it. They want to talk talk talk it out, and are usually incredibly gifted writers. Learning more and new things is the name of their game, their brain is constantly churning information, often times they are thinking about two things at once. (See what I did there? Twins?). Some of their challenges are that they can be high strung, restless and not very consistent.
I hold my mid heaven, Chiron and Lilith all in Gemini, all conjunct one another. I asked the divine this year to send me some Gemini energy, to help me overcome my communication issues (born with mercury retrograde) and ask for help stepping into my midheaven and my goddess did she deliver! Shout out to some of my favorite Gemini’s : @sheleybelly @natalienoche2 @mollyquinnbrown @mizchartreuse
Tag your favorite Gemini! Also the Gemini candle is being offered for $30 during the entirety of Gemini season, stop by and grab one to help access your inner Gemini or grab one for you dearest friend!
Through a fated meeting you're coming to a very important relationship in your life. Either it is new, or an existing relationship is being lifted to a much higher experience. Karma from past lives may have brought you together, it's important for both of you to stay alert. Keep your individual & collective growth a priority an act with defense & compassion to yourselves & each other. If honored this could be the most exalted relationship you will ever know. Weather in romance or business it is a powerful & promising relationship so get ready. It's almost time. A conflict in your home or family that could involve you & another in your family about money issues, an inheritance or personal finances. You may feel compelled to be the peacemaker, let yourself do as ur guided. There could be a thoughtless, selfish person in your life, in love, friendship, #family , or business relationship. This person is self-absorbed & makes plans only in terms of how they affect him or her. You may have lingered too long repeatedly giving to this person, even though you haven't had much in return you've tolerated this because you kept thinking things will get better, or perhaps you were afraid to step away. This person is unlikely to change, take an honest look in your mirror & see how staying in this relationship affects your future. The king of roses appears indicating a potential union. Whether this is a new relationship or the blossoming of an old one, this man is tender-hearted & thoughtful. Someone who can help you in your personal life especially where home issues are concerned. Due to change of plans there may be things that you can't seem to control or maybe you've lost your belief and your own talent & authority. Even if a large task lies before you don't give up. It's time to wake up to your power & work a plan. If this plan is about to collapse start a new one or at least consider some action that you can take to reclaim your power & start a new within your relationships regardless the nature. #tarot#dailylook#oracle#relationship#tarotreadersofinstagram#ego#love#intuition#energy#personalpower#renewal#growth#perspective#karmiclessons#passion#balance#faith
#CELESTIALCARDREADING FOR SUNDAY, MAY 20th
Today we are under the influence of a 32% #WaxingCrescentMoon in #Leo . As your light begins to shine brighter and your energy begins to vibrate higher, become aware of the King/Queen God/Goddess you truly are. Know that you have control over your self and your life by becoming aware of what is and what is not for your highest good. Today, is a day to observe, be a witness, and have faith in the journey. Allow awareness to help you let go of the past, and stay open to new opportunities that allow you to shine even brighter.
Our message from #SaintPadrePio is to trust that by taking control of your journey and becoming aware of what is authentic to your joy, healing is guaranteed - body, mind, and spirit. Maybe you aren’t seeing results as quickly as you’d like, but continue your prayers, as they are indeed being heard.
If you have been contemplating going into a healing career, know that this is your sign that says “It’s time.” Ask St. #PadrePio to guide you to the right mentor, classes, and teacher to fulfill your calling.
So today, be authentic and be aware of what truly feels right for you. Allow this awareness to heal the past and watch miracles happen.
:: Medicine for today ::
Strength. Card 11 (or 8 depending on your deck)
I woke up ready to share in this way again. I don’t know about you but this shift of Uranus in Taurus is really causing me to question up and down and all around. To re-evaluate everything. And to slow down and align and step into the energy of the moment more deeply than ever before. This is a time to pay attention - even more so - to what is actually happening around you and working you. And to consider what you are attached to and invested in. It’s also a time to both rest and begin again. .
Strength coming up mean so much to me. I have been stressing about all the things to get done and complete (and begin!) and my body just wants to soften. Strength comes in and says softening, forgiveness, apologies, compassion :: those are true strengths. Strength is understanding that we aren’t made for these systems if overwork and we can return to more sustainable ways : today focus on being gentle, forgiving yourself as others, and enjoying the things you really love about yourself and your life. .
This Ten of Swords is tough when it comes up. It's such a visceral depiction. You really have reached rock bottom. You're done. You can't take anymore. But within this I also find freedom. There is only one way to go from here, and that is up. This painful cycle has reached its end. You've learned the lessons and now it's time to start over. .
Deer energy is nurturing and loving. The most feminine earth energy. Show yourself compassion as you heal and gain strength, ready to move forward.
¡Qué difícil es perdonar! Pero qué liberador. Perdonar no es aceptar que aquello que nos provocó tanto dolor “está bien hecho”. Significa que somos capaces de liberarnos de ese enojo, del rencor.
Cuando perdonamos, no somos receptores de ira.
A veces nos cuesta, porque nos resistimos al cambio y negamos la realidad.
Aumentemos en nosotros esa compasión que necesitamos para perdonar y soltar, y el poder de reencontrarnos cuando nos sentimos perdidos.
☀️The Lamps of the illumined Dawn.💡 .
The Faeries make excellent guides for our more earthly initiations that are reflecting the greater energies influencing our physical experience right now. In the heat of this early Summer in England there is so much Solar consciousness arising this feeling of celebration! So many of us have now truly switched on our Solar Logos, which is the like the Loci and core Origin our are Natural Essence. Now we are experiencing how our Light radiance is received by the world. These initiations May feel at times more challenging for as this New Light penetrates the existing world, it’s Light codes are literally rewriting and augmenting the previous format. As changes occur, things shift for the rewrite has to become crystallised into matter for it to ground. 🌿. .
The Faeries say so much work has been done! It’s time to celebrate our accomplishments! The Faery riding the Unicorn symbolises the purity of our intention tooting its golden horn of glory through the field of sunflowers 🌻 of happiness. As the Queen of Summer who serves through the power of Source is very compassionate, loving and giving although perhaps she can over give a bit too much at times, leaving her depleted. The faeries ‘cool off’ in the Waters of Life to replenish and rejuvenate themselves. News of weddings, Soul kindreds, graduations and birth’s are at foot! It’s a time to celebrate and rejoice with others we have been journeying with and give gratitude to the fruits of our labours. 🍎
As we come into this time of the New Illumined Dawn, as well shining this Gold to others we must also remember to enrich ourselves with this Gold too. This balance brings satisfaction, happiness and a feeling of content Joy like the radiance of a Sunflower, abundant with seeds at its centre yet shining rays of sun to all! We may feel like we are coming into a space of ‘Graduation’ on our earthly journey of Service through this balance of giving from within to without, when to give and when to draw back. It’s a fine Art we are mastering and all has to do with becoming the sustainable Lamps guiding the New Dawn for Humanity.🌼
I haven’t dabbled much with runes, but after snatching this book up at the thrift shop, I’m becoming increasingly more fascinated by them. I’m curious - what’s your favourite divining method? Tarot, runes, tea leaves, clouds, crystal balls... the list goes on! ✨🌚
Guardian of action & Helper of thought
You have the gift of leadership, and it’s time for you to step forward.
Life is going to be moving a lot faster. Events that may have seemed to be on hold now suddenly require great focus and attention. There may be a little bit of stress as you adapt to the new timelines, but it will feel better than the previous lack of action.
You’re asked to get things done. Look for creative solutions to challenges and you’ll see excellent results. Although you do need to move quickly, don’t forget to review the details carefully. Think outside the box.

Happy long weekend friends!! I will be spending the weekend with family and we are fresh off a big haul from IKEA!!🎉. This means a lot of time will be spent building Noah’s new bedroom! Fingers crossed he will actually sleep in his bed🙈
Anyhoo, today’s post is all about being present and really melting into the moments that are happening around you! So for example, instead of being obsessive about cleaning and checking my phone and so on...I’m really going to melt into the process of room transformation with my family. It’s all these moments we often take for granted where life is really happening! Let’s all help each other be present and really melt into the moments that matter....especially with the magic that awaits us this weekend!
Wishing you melty moments,
A beautiful butterfly captured in Bali 🦋 I’ve never ever seen anything so beautiful! As told by Maria Elita, the butterfly is Mother Earth’s ultimate symbol for transformation. Take a few minutes each day to simply say thank you. In Atlantean times butterflies appeared to confirm intentions of change were being honored - simply accept your wings and fly 🔮 #butterfly#change#atlantisoraclecards
Click on link in my bio for your Tarot & Oracle reading! This week, choose courage. Embrace your truth, face your fears, and move forward anyway. Above all, keep things simple... and remember to breathe.
💜Say It With Me Sunday💜
Here is your message and affirmation for the week.
Reversed The Appreciation card reversed is warning that you’re missing some important opportunities. You’ve lost your sense of gratitude and have gotten caught up in the prickly brambles of negativity, and possibly even despair. Stop focusing on what you don’t have, even if it seems to be a lot. Instead, find something to appreciate about yourself and your life. Choose to focus on the little things with gratitude and acknowledgement. Your refusal to appreciate even the small pleasures will cause them to drop from your hands and keep you stuck in some of your problem patterns, causing you to lament your lack even more. Let go of this negative focus and spend some time every day acknowledging what you have to be grateful for. Remember, the more you appreciate your life, the more your life will appreciate in value.
I choose to see and appreciate the beauty and value around me. I increase my gratitude every day, and I am attracting even more to be grateful for. (Energy Oracle Cards by Sandra Anne Taylor)
LEFT: you are being asked to place your faith and trust in the universe and Source right now. The universe is asking you to trust that they are always bringing you brighter and better things, it’s just about believing you deserve those brighter things. I hear “rejection is God’s protection” I feel that if something disappointing happened recently, you were praying and hoping for something that you did not get, this card is asking you to trust the infinite wisdom of Source, and know all happens for a reason, and there is something better coming! When I saw this card I heard the message answered prayers, you just have to trust the universe is bringing you want you want and what you deserve!
RIGHT: I feel like you need to be more honest, definitely with others, but ultimately with yourself! How can you expect others to be honest with you, if you aren’t honest with you! For some I feel an element of stand in your truth, be empowered by your own truth and integrity. Be a leader, lead from the powerful truth that you are a child of God and have access to divine truth.
For some reason, I hear “where are you going”, where do you want to go? Be honest with yourself about what you want and where you want to be. Sit down and have a truthful conversation with yourself, I feel like some of you are floating off and not really being truthful with yourself. Sit down and think about what you want, and where you really want to be. Be honest with yourself in all directions.
PS: sorry I was a bit late with putting it up, what can I saw, sometimes life gets in the way! 💜💜

Today's message from Spirit for myself, you all may need it too...
#risk 🌊 Total Card Number= 9, completion. Fear can be your greatest enemy but remember your primary ally is the power of Spirit. Even when you are unsure as to where you're headed, Spirit is always there to guide you in the best direction for spiritual growth. Do not only rely on your own tools and habits, ask for support from your higher power. When there seems like a risk should be taken, pay attention to syncronicities and don't hesitate to jump otherwise you will miss out on a wonderful opportunity
