Happy Friday, my friends! How are you doing? I’m back on track after taking a week off blogging to recalibrate with my True Self. We’re in the midst of eclipse season again and with all the planets that are currently retrograde this provides a great opportunity for inner work to shift stuck energy… BUT we do have to take time out to actually do the work.
It’s not always easy to break with routine. Routine is comfort and I use blogging (all kinds of writing, really) to self-soothe the way some may use recreational drugs – All the more important to break with habit to renew the mind! For a couple of days at the start of the week, I felt like I was dying (not kidding). I felt disconnected and lost without my daily writing work. But I knew that was a good thing. I asked my true self what needed to die and the answer came loud and clear: The need to ask for permission. Why? I’m queening and stepping into my sovereignty. I’m no longer a helpless, hapless child of the Divine. I’m being called to step into my role as a Guardian of Earth.
Scary? Yes… but also liberating… and from the chaos and darkness of abandoning routine for a while, new life is born…

General Spirit Guidance for the Week Ahead
For almost a year now, the Divine appears to me in dragon form or in the form of unicorns. I’m not sharing that to inspire you to see the Divine through my eyes but just to let you know why I keep coming back to the Oracle of the Dragonfae for our weekly message. Spirit meets us where we are and the form is less relevant than our willingness to be in communion with what is.
The image above, Gaia’s Dragon, is one that fills me with deep joy. It’s a true representation of the energies I’m feeling now. Rarely has an image resonated more deeply. Apart from a message to connect with our dragon guide(s), which you may or may not wish to do, this card brings a message about opening up to the protective masculine energy of the Universe and to bring our sexual/creative energy into harmony.
This will mean different things to different people, depending on if you are currently more yin or yang, as well as what you need to feel whole. The point is: What you need is seeking you PASSIONATELY now, as a lover seeks his beloved. Call in all the love, ecstasy and support that you need from Source. It’s yours!
How? Simply be in communion with Gaia by spending time in nature. Open up to balance the Divine Feminine and Masculine energy within. Scan your energy. Keep opening up and recalibrating until you feel that you are back in harmony. Pay close attention to your sexual energy as well. Do not bypass your lower chakras. Embrace your sexuality without shame. Complete the exercise by grounding your energy.
Tarot & Rune Week Ahead Messages Reveal

Wunjo with 10 of Cups (Mars in Pisces). Great happiness is in store for you this week. Much of it will come from relationships that are set to improve now. It becomes possible to connect deeply with friends and family. The key to joyful experiences is to be fully present in the moment as well as making yourself emotionally available.
A family celebration of some kind could be on the cards, whether it be an anniversary, birthday, christening or just a get-together because the weather allows for it.
Make the most of the momentum the sense of optimism brings now – especially creatively – to bring any projects to completion. There is a risk you could get a bit lazy and overoptimistic about things taking care of themselves.
You are brimming with compassion and empathy this week, as well as optimism, so expect people to be drawn to you for comfort.
For the relationship: A great week for love and romance of all kinds. If you are single and looking, go out and meet someone new… This is certainly the week for it!
You chose Rune & Tarot card combination number 2
Raidho with 5 of Wands (Saturn in Leo). Time to sort out any creative blocks and seek out some sexual liberation. Work deeply with the prescription in the general weekly guidance above. Much progress needs to be made… and much progress can be made!
Don’t fool yourself that this will take care of itself though. You have to face your blocks to release them. Ideally, you should seek to gain a deeper understanding of how your creativity is linked with your sexual energy in order to prevent future blocks.
This rune and Tarot combination could also address your unwillingness to step into the spotlight or take on the role of a leader. Look closely at how you may be holding yourself back while pushing others to the front.
For the relationship: Your closest, most intimate relationship is a mirror for you creative energy this week. Pay attention and take responsibility for the part you play in nurturing the relationship. For both coupled people and singles, sexual frustration carries a deeper lesson now.
You chose Rune & Tarot card combination number 3
Algiz and the 4 of Pentacles (Sun in Capricorn) – Protect what is yours. This week is more about battening down the hatches than going off on grand adventures. Finances need to be put in order. Spend as little as possible now until you have a better idea of how to distribute your spending so that you don’t overspend.
Ground your energy. This is especially important if you your current state of affairs is making you feel anxious. You have what it takes to get this sorted but you need to keep a clear head, so look after your physical health by making sure you have proper home-cooked meals and go to bed early enough to get a good night’s sleep.
For the relationship: Sound boundaries are very important now, whether you are coupled or single. If you are coupled, help your partner understand that you may not have huge amounts of energy left over for relating until you get over this rough patch and start feeling more stable again. Singles, avoid all the sharks, takers and moochers out there!
