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!

There is a very common theme for this week. Stay grounded and practical. Try to remain calm and not worry, as you are protected. You will survive this week, and there is prosperity to come. We are continuing to learn and grow, learning how to overcome obstacles and remain positive. Learning how to quiet our mind and open it to new possibilities. Keep working on being positive, especially when things get tough. Turn those negatives into positives. Keep your mind clear, calm and open at work, and you will be very successful. It’s funny because I have been suffering from back, hip and leg pain lately, and I feel a bit better today. I do not doubt these crystals are here to heal, any stomach or back issues you may have been experiencing lately. Let’s see which cards hold the message for this week.


The cards are telling me we are definitely protected. We are not alone. We are always protected by our Angels, Guides, Spirits and many other types of beings. The signs are around us always. It’s funny, I just put up a blog post earlier today about appreciating and tuning into guidance we receive, and here are the cards telling us again to ask for signs and watch for them. The cards are telling us to connect with our Angels, Guides and Spirits, by expressing ourselves and asking for signs to guide us. When you connect in this way you experience more and more signs, and become more connected to the universe. We are part of a collective whole, here to help evolve Planet Earth. Notice the two depictions of the stars and sky, the one Angel has her head down, but if she looked up to the universe she would see the signs, and know she is not alone. Keep your head up. Express yourself in healthy ways to mitigate stress and clear your mind this week. Try to express yourself instead of keeping emotions bottled up. This could mean speaking your mind from a place of positive emotion, but also can be working out, meditating, doing something creative, spending time alone or with others. There are many like-minded people out there for you to connect with. Whatever you feel you need to do to express yourself and release emotions. Expression is about taking back your personal power, and knowing that nobody can take this from you. Remember whenever you are feeling down this week, that there are ways to turn your feelings around, and you truly are never alone. There is always a balance, life can’t always be perfect. There may be tough moments, but there are good ones too! You can manifest them quicker by seeing the positive in negative situations, by recognizing the lessons. This is how we evolve. You will see the rewards and should be very lucky this week! Watch for the signs! 

Expression – This card guides you to speak your mind. After all, that’s one of the reasons you are here on this Earth. For so long, people have not spoken up for themselves. As a result, humanity has lived under the tyrannical control of those with power. Now is the time for change, and you are one of the spiritual warriors in charge of initiating that shift. Always speak your mind, but also be aware of how others react to you. Ask the Angels to guide you to communicate in ways that allow you to be heard. If you can express yourself in a manner people can relate to, your concerns and opinions will be much better received. 

You Are Not Alone – As you grow older, you’ll realize that no one on this planet truly knows what he or she is doing – we all just get by as best we can. This card reminds you that you’ve got plenty of help and companionship available to you. Never before have so many people come into a lifetime with the shared Divine purpose of rewriting the script for daily human life. Your mission is so very important, and there are literally millions of other people in this world having very similar experiences. Ask the Angels to help guide you to like-minded people who can relate to you. It will soon become apparent to you that you are an integral part of one of the most significant movements in human history. 

Ask For A Sign – If you’re feeling stuck or confused, then you need a sign to point you in the best direction. Signs are some of the most interactive and consistent messages the Angels can bring. When you regularly ask for them, you’re shown constant reminders that you’re on the right path, and receive clear guidance to help keep you there. You may feel disconnected from other people and wonder why you can’t relate to them. Ask the Angels to show you a plain and recognizable sign that your wish/purpose/dream/hope/desire is relevant and possible, and to let you know the next step to take. You will be very pleased with the outcome, as Heaven will validate and guide you clearly. All you have to do is ask!
