Your FREE Week Ahead Reading
Happy Saturn’s day, my friends! The Yule and Christmas celebrations are now behind us and we look forward to celebrating the New Yea in the week ahead. Are you making any resolutions?
Rather than making resolutions, which I seem completely unable to stick to, other than that one time when I made a resolution to always change the loo roll as soon as it ran out, I try to set intentions for the year ahead. My main intention for 2019 is to stay centred in unconditional love. I mean, how hard can it be?!
Yeah, I hear you… The simplest things can also be the most difficult. But with setting the intent, at least I have an anchor and something I can keep returning to in meditation. I think it’s worth a shot!
When I think about the best example of unconditional love that ever walked this Earth, my thoughts are instantly drawn to Yeshua and Mary Magdalene. This is why I have chosen the Jesus Deck for our general guidance this week.
For the individual week ahead readings, we are working with the Morgan Greer Tarot. Before choosing your card and alchemy stone combo, you may wish to take a moment to relax, ground and centre. If you are not getting anything intuitively, you can hop on over to random.org and let a digital randomiser choose for you (yes, it works!).
General Spirit Guidance for the Week Ahead
The Jesus Deck has four suits, corresponding to each of the four gospels in the traditional canon New Testament. Here we have number eight from my favourite gospel, the Gospel of John.
The theme, ‘The Appearance,’ shows us the resurrected Christ appearing to four of the disciples gathered in a house with bolted doors. If the grave could not hold him, how would locked doors present a problem, right?
This is the ultimate miracle of love – a love so strong that Death could not conquer it. A marker in time that changed the world forever… A mystery worthy of contemplation.
Where is Mary Magdalene when the scene above is being played out? She was the first to witness Yeshua after the resurrection, and she was the one who first told the other followers of Christ about his victory over death.
I believe she was and is in His heart as she is in Hers. Together they continue to teach us how to walk the path of unconditional love, as long as we are open to receive these teachings.
The deeper mysteries of the teachings of Christ were not revealed to the male disciples who became the apostles and the main proponents of this new religion; They were revealed to Mary Magdalene alone. Sadly much of her Gospel is lost but for those who are interested in learning more, I recommend ‘The Meaning of Mary Magdalene‘ by Cynthia Borgeault and ‘The Gospel of Mary Magdalene‘ by Jean-Yves Leloup.
This card signifies a week of culmination, restoration and rejuvenation. We begin again – Another year awaits… Pay attention to any signs that appear on the first day of 2019.

8 of Wands with Fire means things will start moving again this week. You feel strongly motivated and focused. This is a week of rapid change in progress and having to adapt quickly to all the new things that are coming into your life.
This is a time to act on any intuitive nudges. Don’t focus on your own dreams and projects to the detriments of the people you love. Extend some of the Fire you are so full of now to them and it will return to nourish you when you most need it.

10 of Wands with Saturn is a sign that you need to rest some more and not try to get the New Year off to a flying start. You could be feeling a bit frazzled after the holidays… and that’s OK. Delegate any chores you have to deal with and make sure to look after yourself, so that you can restore some of your depleted energy.
10’s speak of culmination, which is also a theme for our general guidance reading. Take some time to contemplate what is ending for you now. What needs to be cleared out to mark this ending before the new beginning can get off the ground? What is still a drain on your energy? It is time to cut cords with anything or anyone who is holding you back.
The associated Shem angel is Nithael. This angel helps clear any doubts about Death being conquered once and for all. On a more practical level, he can help us stay in good favour with people in power and employers.

The associated Shem angel is Vashiriah (aka Vasariah). We can call on this angel for help with integrating difficult life lessons, as well as to eloquently pass along what we learn. Vashiriah helps can help us remember what we need to remember. The corresponding verse from Psalms is 33:4
For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth
