Happy Friday, my friends! I have a new deck for the week ahead messages today. Well, it’s new to me. It’s actually considered a classic and I nearly got it a few times in the past. It showed up in an eBay auction last week and I finally went ahead and put a bid in. I got lucky in more ways I could even imagine. Read my deck interview with this deck HERE.
As usual, I combine the Tarot cards with the Alchemy Stones for the individual messages. For this week’s general guidance message from Spirit, I’m working with the Les Vampires Oracle by Lucy Cavendish.
Before scrolling down to the individual messages, please take a moment to ground and centre your energy. Use your breath to release any tension. You may find this works best with your eyes closed. It doesn’t have to take long. With a bit of practice you can learn to ground and centre with just a few breaths. Then open your eyes and allow your inner guidance to select a number between one and three for your week ahead guidance.
General Spirit Guidance for the Week Ahead
We are now in the last quarter Waning Moon phase until the New Moon in Gemini on the 13th of June. This is a good time to release any distractions and anything that is keeping you from focusing on/working toward your life goals.
Come up with a schedule for the week ahead and stick to ut. Banish any influences that seek to steal your time, whether in the form of aimless social media browsing, indulging addictions or being around toxic people who don’t have your best interests at heart.
You deserve to leave behind a legacy of excellence… but doing so takes discipline. This reminds me of the quote from Fame – a favourite TV series of mine back in the 80’s…You want fame? Well, fame costs. And right here is where you start paying... in sweat. ~ Miss Grant Click To Tweet
You may not wish for fame but whatever area you wish to excel in will take sustained, focused effort. You get out what you put in. Be honest with yourself about how much you actually put in this week. If it’s not enough, make adjustments accordingly.
It’s not likely that you will lie on your death-bed and mournfully tell your loved ones, “Oh how I wish I had spent more time browsing online, arguing on Facebook and watching Netflix.”
This card is your reminder to make the most of the time you have left and to know that nobody but you is responsible for removing the obstacles and distractions.
I must admit, I love this deck’s ability to give us the proverbial kick up the backside we all need at times 🙂
Tarot & Alchemy Stones Week Ahead Messages Reveal
You chose Stone & Tarot card combination number 1
Quintessence with 8 of Cups (Saturn in Pisces). To achieve balance in the week ahead, you must let go of old patterns and habits. The good news is that you are emotionally ripe to finally take this step now. The pain of staying has become greater than the pain of leaving.
For some of you this could mean ending a relationship, to others walking away from an employment situation and for others still it is about ditching an addiction, thought pattern or bad habit.
You will be shown which area of your life is out of balance now and you will get a sense of urgency about a need to correct this imbalance. Do not delay because especially during the first three days of this week you will have the momentum to release what no longer serves you thanks to the Waning Moon energies.
It is important to not move forward with a sense of failure. The antidote lies in coming away with an understanding of what happened and why it happened so that you will not repeat those ‘mistakes’ which weren’t really mistakes at all but learning opportunities.
Affirmation: I release all negative influences by the power of the Waning Moon.
You chose Stone & Tarot card combination number 2
Salt with The Moon (Pisces). You may find yourself in limbo at the start of the week. This feeling may cause anxiety because you don’t know which path to take next and the choice you need to make could require diametrically opposed actions – neither of which you feel excited about at the moment.
Don’t worry, you only feel this way because you are entering unknown territory and this is the start of a phase of your life that is going to be much better for you.
The answer about what to do next lies within. In the deep waters of your psyche, you will be capable of bringing opposing forces (ideas) together so that the Path you need to be on stars becoming visible to you. A third solution which you haven’t yet contemplated may become apparent.
Allow information to come to you in your dreams. Use your imagination. Light a candle for each option and project into the future for each choice in turn, imagining how things might turn out and what you would need to do in order to succeed. Ask Spirit to guide you on these journeys of the imagination.
You may also have to deal with some deliberate deception or cover-up. If this is the case, you will be the catalyst for change and transparency, taking on the alchemical quality of salt. You will have a keen perception for who is telling the truth and who isn’t.
Affirmation: I open space in my awareness for opposing forces to be brought together.
You chose Stone & Tarot card combination number 3
Alembic and the 2 of Swords (Moon in Libra) is a sign that you need to pay attention and observe what is happening in the world around you before you can move forward. You may already know where you want to be but things still seem a bit stuck and you may be wondering where the momentum has gone.
Trust that what you have set in motion will come to fruition. One stage is nearing completion and once you clearly see the results of your initial effort, you will know what you need to do next.
Don’t rush ahead but evaluate this stage carefully before you plan what to do next. Timing is everything for this part of the journey. The adept is encouraged to rely on Astrology for the timing aspect.
Don’t worry if things don’t go exactly to plan – There is much to learn from the kinks, hiccups and mistakes you make along the way.
It could be that while you are able to help others move forward and problem-solve this week, you yourself struggle with ambivalence. This is more a week of gathering data and evaluating your progress up until this point, before the next big push forward which is likely to occur on or some time after the New Moon.
Affirmation: I observe and wait for the right timing.
Have a great weekend, my friends!
