Happy Friday, my friends! The Tarot deck we are using for the 28 Jan – 3 Feb week ahead messages is Robert M. Places Angels Tarot. This deck was published in 1995 and is now sadly out of print. The companion book by Rosemary Guiley is a good primer on Judaic Angelology, so if you’re lucky enough to be able to find this deck and book set second-hand, I recommend it. Beware that the Minors are just plain playing cards pips – not everybody’s cup of tea.
I am also, for the first time, featuring The Alchemy Stones. I find they work very well together with the Tarot. The Alchemy Stones have been published in a couple of editions, the latest (I believe) in 2002. Sadly now also out of print. The companion book is written by M.E. Warlick and is a good introduction to Alchemy. You can still find the book on its own (sadly no stones) on Amazon. However, those of you who are handy and have already made your own set of runes, could easily make a set of alchemy stones to go with the book!
It’s time to choose your stone and Tarot card combo for the week ahead. Take a moment to relax by taking a few deep breaths and letting go of any tension. Ground your energy and focus on the cards at the top of the screen. You can either make your selection by choosing a number or going with the alchemy stone symbol you feel most drawn to.
Spirit Guidance for the Week Ahead
Moon Goddess from the Conscious Spirit Oracle brings a message about embracing the natural rhythm of the lunar tides. This week, we are coming up to a Blue Moon (second Full Moon in the same month) in Leo. Pay attention to how your energy responds to the waxing moon. Are your dream messages becoming clearer? Do you have more energy (or maybe less than usual)? Keeping a combined lunar & dream journal is one of the best ways to honour and integrate the energy of the Divine Feminine. When we are in tune with the lunar cycles, we don’t waste energy by fighting the tide.
Angels Tarot Week Ahead Messages – Reveal
You chose card and alchemy stone combination number 1
Here we have Mars together with the 7 of Spades/Swords. This combination speaks of a project or venture already set in motion that is now susceptible to thievery, whether of intellectual or physical property. Be cunning and act to protect what is yours if you wish to complete this project successfully. See this as a good sign that what you are working on is truly valuable and make sure that nobody steals ‘your baby.’

You chose card and alchemy stone combination number 2
Alchemical Sulphur with the King of Spades/Swords. Your mind is sharp, you know what you want and you have the confidence to go after it. Any loose ends that needed tying up can be tied up with great ease in the week ahead. You will ace any writing projects or any public speaking comments. Just be careful to be present from the heart with your loved ones or you risk coming across as quite aloof.
Power crystal: Green aventurine
You chose card and alchemy stone combination number 3
Both the alchemy stone Ouroboros and the Abraxas (The Magician) Angels Tarot card speak of a new cycle beginning for you. It is time that you recognise just how much power you have to create the trajectory for this next cycle and to actively co-create that which you wish to manifest. Lessons from past cycles that are still incomplete will no doubt surface but do not doubt your ability to resolve them once and for all this time. Call on divine assistance whenever you get stuck or if things get ‘too much.’ This is a very important time for you in terms of preparing for the future. This is not the time to doubt yourself or your gifts – Your contribution is much needed!
