Reading for the week of February 26, 2023

The crystals I am working with for the week are Crackle Quartz, Turquoise, and Peacock Ore. I use these crystals to connect to the energy, to connect to the message meant for everyone who reads this, and to send you the healing energy of the crystals.

Crackle Quartz – Activates the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. It counteracts negativity. It helps you regain positive emotions. It represents the highs and lows of life. The cracks demonstrate flexibility. Crackle Quartz is all about balance. It helps manage emotional and creative energy to keep you level-headed and safe from the potentially destructive nature of dark energy. It helps you learn from the past and move forward with strength and enlightenment. It helps you maintain your focus.

Turquoise – Represents wisdom, tranquility, protection, good fortune, and hope. Connects you to the Spirit world. A symbol of friendship that brings peace to the home. Brings luck, success, ambition and creativity. A stone for self-forgiveness and self-acceptance, and the release of useless regrets. It encourages us to honor ourselves as a creation of the Divine.

Peacock Ore – Enhances inner knowing, strengthens perception and helps you trust what you see. It is also a protective stone, good for many kinds of protection, including protection from illness.

My interpretation of the crystals:

Things have been a little tough lately. Even though there have been moments of fun and happiness, but they seem like they are so few and far between. Sometimes we feel high, and sometimes we feel low, and we just have to go with the flow sometimes. I keep being reassured that blessings are on the way. I saw one reading that said the coming Full Moon we will see some rewards for our efforts. While that would sure be nice, we have to remember that our happiness is in our hands, and if our life isn’t fun or enjoyable or adventurous enough for our fulfillment, then it’s up to us to do something about it. I can sit in my pity party all I want, but that really isn’t going to help. I’ve been trying to decide what I can do for myself where I can actually feel like I’m getting a break or the joy that I seek. It’s up to me to create more of that for myself. No, it’s probably not going to be easy, and there is a million reasons we could make to not do things differently, but ultimately, it’s up to us to make different choices if we want things to change. There have been times in my life that have been so magical.. and there have been times where I feel like I’m losing the magic. We have to keep our thoughts positive with trust that magical moments are coming again. We can’t get sucked into negativity, because that’s not the type of energy we want to reside in. The Crackle Quartz is here to cheer us up and lighten the energy. It’s here to help us regain our positivity and energy. It is going to help us take the lessons from what we’ve gone through and move forward with strength. We have to maintain flexibility and go with the flow and allow for change right now. So many things are shifting. Stay focused on what makes you happy and where you want to go. Stop expending your energy on things that aren’t getting you anywhere, that aren’t true to you or support your light. This is your life and only you get to choose how you live it. Being angry or depressed does not feel good, so try to pull yourself out of it as best as you can. Keep taking steps forward. Get yourself out of the house. Make yourself feel good by taking care of you. It’s really important right now. There is no point of regretting any of it. It all served its purpose and its lessons. What have you learned? What do you really want going forward? Forgive yourself and accept yourself as you are. Stop beating yourself up or trying to be perfect. Those who truly love you will appreciate you for you. You are a creation of the Divine and you should honor yourself and give yourself what you deserve. There is so much ambition and success coming. Use your wisdom and creativity to help you get ahead. Create tranquillity in your life as best as you can. If you have been lacking supportive relationships in your life, put yourself out there and make connections. Be the type of friend you seek. Again, it’s up to you. Our Third Eye and Crown Chakra is wide open, and we are receiving visions, dreams, and knowings of the future. Trust what you see and know. Trust where you know you need to go. Be strong through whatever challenges come your way. Know that good things are definitely on the way. Let’s see what the cards say.

My interpretation of the cards:

We are reminded that love is always around us, even when we feel alone. Wear the crown in your life. Treat yourself like the King/Queen you are. Make your own life beautiful and fun. Use music to make you feel good and remind you of love. Sing your song and be true to yourself. Don’t be scared to share your beauty or your truth. Nightingale reminds us that the Sun will rise again soon. Spring is on the way and we will feel joyful again. You are SO loved and connected to all of life and Spirit. Always look for the love and prosperity that can be shared. Trust that tomorrow is going to be a better day and stay positive. This is your wake-up call, to create a life you love, or you will keep doing the same old. To life live in full color, or stay where it feels like we are drowning. It is a perception and a choice. Things are going to change whether we like it or not, and the more we resist, the more painful it will be when the force becomes stronger. We cannot afford to avoid or deny the reality any longer. Life is passing us by. We have to get honest about how we feel and what we want. We have to confront the truth and allow change to take place. Listen to your instincts about what is coming. Try to make the changes as comfortable as you can. Seek the higher perspective of spiritual truth. Joan of Arc is the epitome of strength. Stay strong and focus on yourself and your true purpose. Release fears that are holding you back and utilize your full power. We may be persecuted, but that only means our truth has power. We have to do what we can, while we can, with what we have. Our truths need to be shared and heard, especially during these tumultuous times in the world. Let them persecute you, because one day they may see the truth of their actions. Follow where your soul is leading you. It can feel like a lonely and misunderstood journey, but people will understand when they see the light. You do not need to defend or prove yourself. All you need to do is believe in yourself and trust in your purpose. Know that the Angels are on your side and thanking you for all the good you have done and will do. You are supported and loved, so keep going. Just keep going. Keep loving yourself. Choose a life filled with love and happiness. Have a beautiful week!

Card Reading for the Week of December 4, 2022

The crystals I am working with for the week are Lemurian Aquatine Blue Calcite, Blue Aragonite, and Blue Kyanite. I use these crystals to connect to the energy, to connect to the message meant for everyone who reads this, and to send you the healing energy of the crystals.

Lemurian Aquatine Blue Calcite – Connects to the Throat Chakra. Promotes clear, optimistic, peaceful communication. Develops psychic intuition and clairvoyance. Attunes to Lemuria. Increases emotional intelligence, wisdom, enlightenment, and consciousness. Helps attain emotional balance. It brings deep emotional healing, along with happiness and peace. Harmonizes family energies.

Blue Aragonite – Associated with the Throat Chakra. Encourages you to vocalize your feelings and emotional pain in times where you would normally bite your tongue. Soft and comforting energy. Helps calm and soothe emotions. Helps with facing difficult situations or dealing with traumas. Helps you to become more open with yourself and your hidden emotions, slowly over time releasing these weights. Softens emotional transitions. Helps us to get over things we can’t seem to let go of. Offers patience, intuition, and insight into our emotions. It has a comforting, optimistic, and joyful vibration.

Blue Kyanite – Kyanite is a stone of channeling, altered states, vivid dreams, dream recall, and visualizations. It brings loyalty, honesty and tranquility, and diminishes anger and confusion. Kyanite does not retain negative energy and never needs energetic cleansing. It does align and balance all chakras, often very suddenly. Kyanite can remove energy blockages.

My interpretation of the crystals:

My plate is getting a little full lately, so I am not sure how consistent my Weekly Card Readings will be, but I am going to do my best to keep them up because I do look forward to the guidance they bring. It has been a difficult week.. my family is getting over being sick, the weather has been unbearably cold, and my son has a hospital procedure coming up very soon. Along with other personal difficulties I’ve been dealing with… It’s a lot sometimes. I have been feeling like I’ve had to fight for my rights and my needs lately.. there has been more anger and resentment in my life than I would prefer… but these crystals are making me feel like this week with be much more calm and soothing. Communication is coming up big for the Full Moon in Gemini on Wednesday, so it’s not a surprise that I chose 3 Blue Crystals that have to do with the Throat Chakra. I have been working hard at releasing trauma from my past too, so these crystals are very relatable to me personally. What we communicate and how we do so is very important to our overall energy. What we say and how we think, affects our reality and how we feel. If we think everything is hard and the the world sucks, you can guess what your experience will be. The crystals and the coming Full Moon are asking us to take a more optimistic and positive approach to our communication and thoughts. It’s important to vocalize our feelings, but we have to make sure we are doing it in ways that will be received the way we need them to be. As my Full Moon post said, being aggressive won’t get us what we want, and we need to take a more subtle approach. We have to look for more ways to find peace within, despite whatever we have going on around us. Although I wish my son didn’t have to go through another procedure, creating resistance doesn’t help. All I can do is embrace the days as they are and get through them as positively as I can. If we want to be happier, we have to find more emotional balance and inner peace. Your spiritual connection and tools such as meditation or sound healing can help you feel more calm and soothed. We have to let go of the heavy emotional burdens from the past, especially with the Full Moon coming up. We don’t need to keep dragging around the past. We have to let our hearts be free to pursue what makes us truly happy. Pray to God, the Angels, your Spirit Guides and Ancestors for guidance and protection. Ask for the help you need to get over the things you are struggling with. Gemini is all about duality and the Yin Yang, so be comforted that when things are hard, that better days are on their way. Trust that love, happiness, and joy will fill your heart again. Think joyful thoughts and live as joyfully as you can. Let the Kyanite remove any blockages and stagnancy from your life. Feel aligned and balanced so that you can experience more tranquility. More importantly, be honest with yourself and live an honest life. God sees the truth of all things, and sees you giving your best and most honest effort. Karma will come to those who deserve it, but that is not for us to judge. All we have to do, is the best we can do for ourselves. I have had the most vivid dreams the past week, and they have been fabulous and so full of love and passion. Make sure you are writing your dreams down in the morning so that you can decipher the symbolism and see the pattern of the messages. Be comforted by your dreams. Trust that what you give, will always be returned to you ten-fold. Let’s see what the cards have to say!

My interpretation of the cards:

I really, really love Rebecca Campbell’s Oracle Card Decks. The Reunion Card reminds us that we have so much support around us. Even if it’s hard for you to see now, we do have Spirits that guide our path and bless our dreams. We are co-creating our lives everyday with the help of Spirit, so we need to appreciate our blessings and the gifts we receive, even if they are as simple as a happy dream. There are also people in our lives that can help us and collaborate with us. You really aren’t alone, and you don’t need to do everything alone or feel alone. The Pink is a very soft and comforting color. It reminds us to love ourselves and appreciate ourselves fully. It reminds us to share our beautiful light, and be people that others can look to for friendship and collaboration. The way the world is now, it feels like it is set up for us to compete with each other. We need to create new ways of living that allow for supporting each other. In spiritual truth, we are not in a competition, we hold keys for each other. The Rose is a prominent symbol on these cards, to remind us of all the love around us, and to appreciate how beautifully we are blooming. We are reminded to bloom bravely, despite the ways of the 3D world. When we see others blooming, we should be proud and supportive, and not jealous or competitive. This comes back to lower forms of thinking. The example I like to use, is sometimes I find myself thinking, “Oh it must be nice to have this or that… your life must be so easy….” But that is such a low-vibe thought. I can create anything that anyone else has ever had, the only one who really holds me back is me. Nobody has it easy, which is why it is so incredibly important that we support and uplift each other. It’s important that we understand our own value, that we are as worthy as anyone else. We do deserve a beautiful life with good things, and we can attain it. It’s starts with how we think and feel about ourselves and our life. You don’t get to blossom and bloom at will… you don’t get to pick and choose how people see you. You have to be authentically you and bloom always. You are just as beautiful and capable of blossoming as any soul. I always say, people can’t know your story or who you are, if you aren’t willing to tell them. I am a very private and introverted person, it wasn’t easy to share my life when my 3 year old son got cancer. It wasn’t easy to share my story or receive support. A lot of times, it’s not easy to share my personal struggles in these readings. I would rather not mention how hard my life can be, but it’s important that I do, so others know they aren’t alone, and that they are as capable as I am to make the changes they need and enlighten their own lives. People can only see your light if you are willing to share it. I don’t do all this spiritual work to prove that I am better than anyone else. I do it to show everyone that they are capable too. Life is not always easy… but we have to maintain our faith and trust. We can go about our lives not trusting others, but that will keep us closed off, and that is not what we really want. What we really want is love, beauty, and openness. Trust that if you keep giving and sharing, that others will do that for you too. The message I’m getting here is that it’s so important for us to keep our hearts open, despite what we have been through. It’s safe to love and trust again. The Holy Grail Card is showing how important it is for us to feel rooted and secure in life. Even if we have reasons to feel insecure, that’s not where our energy or thoughts need to be focused. That isn’t how we bloom. No matter what is going on around us, we always need to derive our safety and security from within. We are always safe in spiritual truth. The Eagle shows that we are being guided and shown visions of where we need to go. It reminds us that we are always protected and watched over. The Eagle is definitely a sign from the Ancestors. The Deer reminds us to have patience and be gentle with ourselves. The Woman holds deep reverence for life and is praying and putting her faith in Spirit. She is spiritually connected and her energy is flowing freely. She is calm and at peace. The Holy Grail Card asks us to go within and derive our peace and security there. We have to connect with grace within ourselves, to see it reflect in the world around us. We can’t hide our intentions or our true thoughts and feelings, that is why it is so important to do the work and truly heal and find the security, beauty, and optimism for yourself. If we keep searching outside of ourselves to be fulfilled, we may never find it. We need to do the spiritual work within. Focus on what really matters. Communicate to yourself with love and positivity. Your life is your canvas. It’s up to you how you live it and create it. Some people don’t want to hear that it is ultimately up to us as how we perceive things… trust me, I know. I could go into victimhood about all the things that have affected me that are beyond my control…. But that does not empower me, nor make my life more beautiful. I have to take accountability for how I want to create my life going forward, and how I want to feel about it. If things aren’t working, it’s up to me to change them. It’s up to me to be open to new adventures. You can stay closed up, or you can bloom. The choice is yours, which is actually very freeing and empowering. Your Life Is A Canvas is the last card in the deck, so it does tell me that we are moving into a new phase with new beginnings, which we can make the most of when we come from an empowered place within. We are manifesting based on what we think and believe. Where do you need to make changes in your thought patterns and the way you communicate about your life? If you think life is crappy, that will come to fruition. It’s never too late to work on shifting your thoughts. When you find yourself thinking a low-vibe thought, imagine a bright red X through the thought and replace it with a positive thought. Keep an open heart and keep working on yourself. Be grateful for all the good that is around you right now, and expect more of it. Are your thoughts dark and lonely? Or are they bright and full of love? What future do you want to create? Work towards creating the life you most long to live. Remember your power to create a beautiful life, and use your creativity to take steps forward. This is a new time, we are birthing a new age. The more we can all come from a place of love and collaboration and not competition, the better our entire world can be. Birth the creations that are in your heart. Create a life full of love and happiness and fulfillment. Dream a new world into being. This doesn’t mean everything is going to be easy. Sometimes, the hardest choices are the ones that are the most fulfilling or rewarding. If we want to step into new ways of being, we have to be willing to do things in new ways. We can’t keep thinking and behaving as we always have, and expect different results. The choice is yours. Will you step into your power and create the life you deserve? It really is up to you, it all starts with you and comes from you. Be of service to the world in a way that delights your heart. Ask for Spirit to show you the way. Have a beautiful week!

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of March 21, 2021

The crystals I am working with for the week are Fulgurite, Blue Flame Aura Quartz, Opalite, and Tanzine Aura Quartz. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystal to you.

Fulgurite – Formed from lighting strikes. Awakens one’s sense of higher purpose. Helps with manifestation of one’s power. Kundalini awakening. Purification. Used to “blow one’s prayers through”. Clears dysfunctional patterns in emotions.

Blue Flame Aura Quartz (also known as Titanium Aura) – Has the ability to heal the human energy field. They merge with the aura to release any energy blocks and patch up holes in the aura by its color. It enhances ones physical vitality and brings more energy into the auric field. It is stimulating to the auric field and meridians, acting as a prism for soul-level energy, infusing the aura with a rainbow spectrum of light. Titanium (Flame) Aura allows for one to go deep into meditation to receive spiritual attunement. Overall this crystal is one that brings insight, compassion, energy, excitement and joy into life’s experiences. It is capable of carrying higher frequency range, excellent for trance channels, mediums, psychics and maintains grounding while in a higher state of consciousness.

Opalite – Harness your personal power. Increases self-esteem and self-worth. Unleash your inner strength. Calming and soothing. Connects you to the Spirit world. Balances energy and removes blockages. Heals emotions. Clears trouble from your heart and creates peace. Resolves hurts by helping you to let go. Offers compassion, kindness and gentleness. Promotes a positive outlook.

Tanzine Aura Quartz – Holds a high level of Spiritual awareness. Powerful when developing psychic abilities. Enhances connection to Spirit. Raises vibration. Opens the 3rd eye. The gateway to astral travel, it induces lucid dreaming to experience blessings, gain knowledge and reach enlightenment. Places the mind’s knowledge under the possession of the heart’s wisdom. Connects with nature Spirits to accumulate wisdom.

The Fulgurite is a very special crystal to me, and I haven’t used for a reading yet. It is very delicate and precious. It is formed from lightning strikes hitting sand. It is used for blowing your wishes through. I felt I needed to use it as a special added crystal today, and I made sure to blow some special wishes through for all of us. What I’m hearing from Spirit, is “makes wishes”. We are leading into a Full Moon in a week, and we just had the Vernal Equinox, and this is a perfect time for new beginnings. Its a time of manifestation. It’s time to dream big and wish big, and keep working towards making those dreams and wishes come true. The crystals are all very special and beautiful for this week. The Aura Quartz’s always tell me there is beautiful, highly spiritual energy that is present. I believe this past year, even with all of its struggles, has helped us all to grow, especially in spiritual ways. With the freshness and optimism of Spring, we are entering into a new season of growth, and are going to continue to evolve even more. We are starting to understand our true purpose in life. We are understanding our inherent power, and how much ability we have to manifest the life of our dreams. We are recognizing the dysfunctional patterns in our lives and working hard to change them. As always in the Spring time, Kundalini energy is very high. Romance and love is the air. Just remember to honor your innocence and purity. You do not have to be something just because someone else might expect you to be. Honor yourself and your boundaries. We are all pure in our hearts, and nobody, or anything we’ve ever done, can take that away. You can reclaim your purity and innocence whenever you want, however you feel you need to. People have tainted us in the past, with their expectations, indiscretions, or just plain carelessness… but that doesn’t mean we have to live with that or carry that pain around forever. You are not what they made you out to be. You are as innocent and precious at the 5 year old version of you. We can go back to a time before there was this hurt and pain. We can reverse the effects of the damage that had been done to us. We can clear these dysfunctional patterns once and for all. It starts with a new decision. It starts with a declaration of intention and personal power. It starts with you consciously choosing freedom. If you have grown from your past and you are better because of it; it has to reflect in your choices and your boundaries. These crystals are healing our aura and energy body. We have to be disciplined with our minds, emotions, and physical bodies. We need to take time to slow down, to meditate, to relax, to take back control of our mindset. We are evolving and our spirituality is being awakened. We have to do our part and ensure we that aren’t closed off from receiving the things we actually want in life. There are so many gifts being delivered to you, in many ways. Are you taking advantage of the insights you’ve received to improve your energy? Are you living your life with purpose? Are you infusing it with love and joy? Spring is the perfect time to be optimistic. Stand in your power and believe in yourself. You can have the life you desire! But you need to get your energy balanced, and remove the things that are holding you back. You have to allow yourself to heal. Truly and fully heal, so that you can let go of these burdens for good. Just because some things went to shit in the past, does not mean everything is destined to go to shit. You need to believe in the good. You need to put all your energy there. Have compassion and kindness for everyone, especially yourself. Those things weren’t easy to go through… but you are here… you have learned.. and you have the opportunity to make the changes you desire. Raise your vibes in any ways that you can. Let yourself feel good. Experience blessings and welcome more into your life. Connect with nature in a reciprocal relationship, and let the Universe guide the way. Let’s see what the cards say!

It’s time to let go of the anger from the past for good. Letting it fester and broil underneath the surface is not helping anyone, especially you. It’s safe to let go of the past, for good. If you are angry at yourself for choices you made, have compassion that you’ve done the best you could, and acknowledge that you hold the power to make new choices for yourself going forward. It’s always tempting to say “F the world”, and close your heart off… but that’s not where you find the beauty.. it’s not where you find the power or spiritual enlightenment. That comes from you opening your heart, and living a life of love, even if you feel vulnerable. Blame and anger and holding you back, and keeping you in a negative energy state. Being free of anger gives you more power, energy, and happiness. If we want success, if we want happiness, we have to be dedicated to that and disciplined in our approach. We can’t continue doing the things that we know don’t work, and hoping they do. The Chariot is a major arcana card of forward movement in our life. We have a lot on our plates and a lot to balance. Stay centred, strong, and determined. Remain steadfast in your purpose. Don’t allow others to steer you off-course. You can accomplish so much!! This is a time to work on the things you feel inspired to, and put your work out there! It is time for you to be seen and celebrated. Keep working on what you are passionate about. Be genuine and optimistic in your dealings with others too. Just because you have been hurt in the past, doesn’t mean you will always be treated that way. This is about keeping your chariot under control and on track. If you are going to win this race, you have to allow yourself to be seen. You can’t dim your light and hide away. This especially resonates with me, because I have been struggling to promote myself and my spiritual work. As I’ve been told in many readings, I’m not here on this Earth to do mainstream work, and that is why I’m coming across so many challenges in my life. It would be easy to go work for someone else every day and make my paycheque, but I have something much deeper, much more spiritual, to fulfill here in my time on Earth. God gave me these challenges so I would be forced to rethink my life and how I approach it. I have been challenged to change my thoughts about how I think about myself and my spiritual gifts. We were all born to shine bright! How can you shine bright in your life? The don’t dim to fit in card, again, is telling us not to let other people steer us off course. If people in your life are challenging you, you need to shine anyway! If others don’t want to be around, that is their loss! We all need to shine bright and inspire everyone else to shine their bright light too. Relationships can challenge this notion of who is shining brighter, but true loving relationships will have compassion and allow the other person to shine, while themselves finding inspiration to do the same in their own way. This is about letting go of any jealousy, and offering only support and love going forward!! No more anger, jealousy, resentment, shame, or blame! From now on, when you find yourself thinking about these things or feelings these emotions, release them with compassion. Understand that you don’t need to identify with them. Make a new choice! To shine no matter what!! Sending you all love and wishing you a beautiful week filled with blessings!

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of February 19, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Sunstone, Goldstone and Aragonite. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Sunstone – Dispels fears and phobias. A leadership stone. Used to decrease stress and lift depression. Brings good luck and abundance, and turns negative energy into positive. It is said to be helpful in contacting animal or spirit guides. Used to increase physical and sexual energy and heal depression, phobias and stress related illness.


Goldstone – Helps attain goals. Helps to stay calm and stabilize emotions. It is an energy generator and deflects unwanted energies, making it useful for protection. Revitalizes the energy field. 


Aragonite – Increases energy, especially with prayer. Boosts self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. Diminishes anger and relieves stress. It is helpful to those who need to release attachments and issues from the past. A good Earth healer, it encourages conservation of Earth’s precious resources. A grounding stone that creates a deeper connection to planet Earth.  

I wasn’t sure which Angel Card deck I was going to use today, and I thought, I need to do an Animal Spirit Guide or Nature cards today. The crystals I chose are confirming that energy. They want us to connect to our Animal and Spirit Guides, and they want us to connect to the Earth. We need to deepen our connection to our Earth Mother. We have all grown from her and live on her land. We must take care of our home. The crystals make me feel like we’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, letting fears creep into our thoughts. The crystals are here to heal issues from the past, diminish the anger, stress and depression, and dispel our fears. They are going to help turn any negativity into positive energy. Not only will they boost our confidence to help us attain our goals, it looks like we have luck and abundance on our side as well! Let’s see what the cards say for the week. 


 I decided to pull two cards from the Earth Magic deck and one from the Animal Spirit Guide deck, both by Steven D. Farmer. The Winter Solstice card represents a time where we need to go within and reflect on our lives and find who we truly are. A time to reflect on everything we have learned and how that is going to help us in the future. The crystals are going to help us heal any past issues and transmute anything negative into positive. It is a reminder that we always must go through periods of darkness and times of quiet, but that the sun will return. It always does. Good times are coming. It is a positive time where we are getting ready to unfold, to grow into ourselves more confidently and fully. Our paths are going to unfold before our eyes. There are always going to be bumps in the road, and the Boar reminds you to face those problems head on. There is nothing you can’t handle. The cards and crystals want you to have confidence!! It’s a positive and abundant time, and you will emerge victorious! 

Winter Solstice (Reflection) – The midpoint of Winter is not only the shortest day of the year, but it is also the longest night. The world is very still and the land dormant. Various “Festivals of Light” are celebrated, and have been for thousands of years, serving as a reminder that the light will indeed return. Throughout many cultures there are tales describing this time as the birth of the archetypal Sun King – including the Christian story of Jesus’s birth – representing the hope of renewal from the darkest period of the solar cycle. This image portrays a simple yet powerful representation of the winter solstice. We see a clear reflection of the snowy woods on the still, frozen waters of the lake. The blue tint drapes the scene with an even greater sense of quiet and solace, inviting us to walk very softly lest we disturb the intense yet gentle grace of this scene. The reflection of the trees on the frozen lake reminds us that this is a time for us to go inside – to both our physical shelter as well as our internal world – and there contemplate the season that has passed, the season that is, and the seasons yet to come. Review the past year and ask yourself what the most important lessons you have had to learn are, what you have accomplished, and what dreams and visions you want to manifest in the upcoming year. Whether it has been a relatively smooth ride or a challenging series of events, acknowledge your experience as being the work of Source, no matter what your judgments, fears, or joys are. Honour whatever has happened over the previous several months with gratitude and forgiveness. Then let it go. Allow yourself some solitude so you can spend some quiet, slow time in reflection. Once you feel complete, reflect on your present life, especially focusing on what you are grateful for. When you are finished, consider what is to come – all the different possibilities and potential that exist before you. Allow your imagination to roam without limitation or ambition, and see what shows up. Notice how you feel in your body with whatever scenario plays out in your mind. These are previews of that which is gestating, and can manifest and grow when cared for properly. Patience and stillness is called for here, for just as the Earth cycles have their own pace, so does this cycle. 

Lotus Flower (Unfoldment) – The lotus flowers sits upon one of its leaves, having risen to the surface as the sun – held in the hand of God -invites it upward to the light. This unique plant is rooted in the mud and muck at the bottom of a body of water, it’s stem reaching up to the surface, where the leaves rest quietly. At night the flower closes and sinks below the surface, only to rise with the daylight and once again gradually unfold it’s petals, it’s stem extending above the waterline three feet or more. What we learn from this amazing plant is how our own spiritual path unfolds and opens to the light, then at times gently fold in on itself for proper rest when the daylight fades. This period is just as necessary as the growth, for it allows the plant to integrate what it has gained in nourishment during the day. It’s also just as important that it is rooted, and it is yet another miracle of Nature that something so exquisitely beautiful is formed from the mud and silt at the water’s bottom. Your spiritual unfoldment is occurring at all times whether or not you are aware of it. It is inevitable as long as you put your trust in the hands of the Creator, the one who holds the light. Like the Lotus, your soul is always reaching for the light to fulfill it’s karmic destiny, but even in that process there are periods of darkness and times to rest. It is a natural cycle, one that cannot truly be coerced or halted. It has an innate rhythm of its own, one that is unique to the being that is you. You do not need to strive or be driven by spiritual ambition. It does no good to try to force growth upon yourself – or others, for that matter. Allowing is the key here. Allow the place in you that naturally wants to follow the light to do so while recognizing that even when you have complete faith, you will face challenges and, occasionally, suffering. Your steady faith and love will guide you on your journey of returning to the light.

Boar (Pig) – Whatever difficulties you’re experiencing now, whether with a relationship, career path, or some other concern, dig in and rummage around until you discover how to solve the problem. Then take immediate action to remedy it. Every time you confront adverse situations in this way, you’ll be uprooting those elements in your life that appear to be obstacles to fulfilling your purpose. Life can sometimes be very uncooperative with your rational mind’s sense of order, and will at times even block your demands of how events or experiences should unfold. If you’re living on Earth, you’re going to get your feet muddy sometimes, but it’s no call for panic, crisis, or drama. Instead, take a couple of deep breathes and view whatever problem you encounter as simply something that needs to be taken care of. As the saying goes, there really are no problems – only creative possibilities. Once you have emerged victorious – which means that you either conquered your problem or changed your thinking about how you initially perceived the situation – you’ll experience a surge of power and confidence. Remember that your power originates from Source, expressed through you and as you. When you vanquished the illusion of the situation being a problem, you’ll not only feel a greater sense of relief and freedom, but you also open the way for your heart, mind, and soul to be more in alignment with the Will of Spirit. When you operate from that perspective, you can overcome anything!
