It's Monday the 22nd of October, and another opportunity to do one of these. This week's deck is the amazing Alice Tarot, by Karen Mahony. Some of you might have even helped me to acquire this one, once upon a time! As always, you don't need to do anything to participate; just focus on the 3 cards and pick one, then look in the comments to see what the message from the universe is for you for the next few days. You can also read them from right to left, for a 3 card mini reading. Have fun—and have a great week.
LEFT: The Page of Swords
There's energy running amok where this card is concerned, and you might find yourself pulled every which way this week. Try to find a way to chill out, because you may find that the harder you try to get ahead and focus, the more distractions come your way. You're eager to get ahead—we know that—but be careful that you aren't 'all mouth and no trousers,' as my mum would have said! Be prepared to back up your words with action, and not just any old action, either. It has to be something that is constructive and determined, or you'll wind up running around in circles.
CENTER: The Nine of Cups
They don't call this 'the wish card' for nothing! There's great satisfaction with this card, but it is not a time to rest on your laurels. Yes, there's good energy here, but it's something that you have to work with, for if you take it for granted it will flee as quickly as it came. You've left your comfort zone and found that it was worth the risk, but that's just the start of the journey. The real reward comes in continuing. Use this positive influence to continue your main 'work in progress,' whatever that may be in your life.
RIGHT: The Knight of Cups
With the energy of the Venus retrograde squaring off with Mars this month you might feel that your emotions are flinging every which way like raindrops off a drum. It's okay. The message from the Knight is to get in touch with those feelings and try to understand why you're feeling the way you are. You have the gifts of compassion and understanding, but would you talk to someone else the way you've been talking to yourself, recently? It's time to silence the inner bully, and show yourself some kindness. Listen to y our heart. Listen to your spirit. They know which way to guide you.
