This reading uses the Chrysalis Tarot by Toney Brooks and Holly Sierra.
(Process: I don’t “choose” the cards for these readings, I simply shuffle until I get a “jumper card” – a card that “jumps” out of the deck during the shuffle. I’ve found that this method provides the opportunity for the universe to choose the card(s) without interference from me. If more than 2 cards volunteer, they’re shuffled back into the deck until I get a maximum of 2 for the position I’m drawing for.)
Note: The combined energies and messages of all the cards in the reading are active for the full week, with the energy of the card drawn for specific days being more dominant on those particular days.
The energy of this week feels very intense, and the cards are very strongly reinforcing the message of Sunday’s full moon in Capricorn. (For more info on the full moon energies, see FULL MOON in Capricorn July 8th / 9th 2017~) As the current planetary positions shift, these energies will moderate and ease up, but they will continue to be active until the New Moon on July 23rd. For those who are having natal planets and points activated by the current planetary configurations, it could turn out to be a wild ride (especially if they try to resist dealing with the issues being brought to the surface;) but the intensity will affect all of us to one degree or another.
Monday/Tuesday: Papa Legba (Inner Strength)
Papa Legba comes in to remind us that no matter how uncomfortable the transformational energies of this week are, we have the self-control and inner strength to navigate them successfully.
Wednesday/Thursday: Lovers (Unity and Oneness)
Although The Lovers frequently means things like the beginning of a new relationship or a relationship moving to the next level; this card also highlights the need to reconcile conflicting values and beliefs. This week it is more about the tensions that this full moon is causing in existing relationships, and the internal conflicts that are being brought to the surface to be worked on. Whether affected relationships are social, friendships, work, or romantic; the energies of this full moon will be bringing any discord or suppressed irritations to the surface to be dealt with. The Lovers tells us it’s very important to bring in our love and compassion while reconciling these issues, or the irritable energy of this full moon could cause a permanent break in some of them.
Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Five of Spirals/Two of Scrolls (Shadow/Fantasy)
The “dragons” of the Five of Spirals lurk in your subconscious and are now rising to the surface, bringing forward the internal conflicts and struggles that need to be resolved for you to move forward. As scary and uncomfortable as this can be, remember that resisting or trying to escape the need to deal with them simply pushes them back down to show up again later. Use the power of The Two of Scrolls to help resolve these issues – the winged unicorn points out that sometimes logic and practicality need to be ignored in favor of the intuitive insights that seem to make no sense on the surface. Trust your instincts and the messages you receive, even if they seem fantastic at first glance.
