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 this week feels very active, but not as intense as it has been over the last month or so. It took a long time for the first card to present itself, and then the rest of the cards jumped out almost as soon as I started shuffling for them. With three cards from the suit of Scrolls, it feels like we may be “over-thinking” things a bit during the middle of the week. We’re also getting another visit from our playful friends the ravens, which appear in both the Nine of Spirals and the Sorceress, bracketing the week. When I checked to see what message Raven carries for the reading this week, this is the message that appears: “You are the master of synchronicity. Know in your heart that all doors are open wide. All you have to do is move through them. -Raven” If you go to the page, the message that shows up may or may not be the same one, but it will fit your personal circumstances. The messages from Tiger and Elephant are included in ( ) in the interpretations for the cards they appear on.
Monday/Tuesday: Nine of Spirals (Perseverance)
LOL – this card perfectly expresses the need to keep working, keep trying that was required to get it to present itself for the reading. It’s very much about not giving up, about continuing the work you’ve started even though it may feel like you aren’t getting anywhere. The Nine of Spirals is very much a promise that if you keep trying, you’ll get there.
Wednesday/Thursday: Ten of Scrolls/Four of Scrolls (Exile/Recollection)
Ten of Scrolls repeats the sense of being stuck, of being exiled from the results we’re looking for. It also reminds us that we are powerful beings with the ability to break through the barriers that are holding us back. After all, as strong as they look, they are only paper-thin scrolls (our own thoughts and B(elief)S(ystems)) that are holding us back. (Today is the day to make a move on your goals. Use stealthy care and quietness as your tools. -Tiger) Four of Scrolls asks us to recall that we are not only the thoughts and beliefs we’ve developed in this physical body, we are also our higher self, the part of us that is not stuck, but has an overview of where we are and where we can go. Our resting fairy asks us to use dreamwork and meditation to access that part of ourselves and find our inner guidance.
Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Six of Scrolls/Sorceress (Consolation/Mysticsm and Magic)
The Six of Scrolls tells us our consolation comes from maintaining peace, balance, and harmony in our lives. It asks us to be open and adaptable, and Elephant has a question for us. (Are you shirking personal responsibility? Perhaps it’s time to catch up on a few things. -Elephant Perhaps the smaller scroll he holds in his trunk tells us where we’ve been blaming others instead of taking personal responsibility for our actions. Sorceress promises that if we’ve done the work necessary, our weekend will be filled with magical synchronicities that we should watch for and take advantage of.
