Welcome to brand new segment of my site, known as CotW or Cards of the Week … If your not familiar with the trend, it is where much like a Blog Hop I write up a post here on the site for the week ahead, using a combination of Tarot & Oracle Cards. This week, we’re look at 17th of November through to the 23rd of November. Like the Master List that you find in a Blog Hop, there is a Master List for the posts featured in a Month.
Crow’s Magic Tarot & Black Cat Tarot
Overview:The Tarot Decks in play this week are Crow’s Magic by Londa Marks and Black Cat Tarot by Maria Kurara. This week has a lot of duality happening, a sense of not quite seeing everything or that there are two sides to a ‘story’. On top of that, be aware that there is a lot of mirroring going on as well. If you are not familiar with the term, then it is covered during the individual cards. Let’s get started shall we…
2 of Coins: The words given to this card under the deck are Cryptic and Mysterious, this has a lot of under currents within it; the golden crow flying overhead, isn’t being taken in by all that it is observing, there is a sense from the card that in order to ‘see’ the whole picture, for all that it is; then rise above whatever is actually happening and simply look at it. Two coins, represent money in and money out, so be absolutely certain that you know what is being asked for, and what is being paid for. This card feels like it is dominating the whole week.
2 of Swords: Well the two of swords is another flying one; this time is a cat with its wings and from this one, a lot of cutting out both middle men, cutting or severing energy or ties that bind. Strong sense of really saying what needs to be said through this one. No nonsense, very straight talking and little, very little holding back with what is needing said and done. This is a card that isn’t taking no for the answer and is certainly rising above a lot of what has not been asked for, or a lot of what isn’t needed, usually drama or another in need of attention for the wrong reasons.
High Priestess: This is not the week for imparting what you know, think you know or generally voicing an opinion that isn’t founded in fact. There is so much mirroring going on, which is where a lesson, or group of lessons are shown to you through other people and circumstances. It comes about when, we are working through or navigating very tricky emotions, situations or lessons for our lifetime. Usually we see these being played out through our relationships, and situations around or surrounding others, we are usually presented or in the presence of to observe something akin to what we are experiencing. Through these things, we start to see what our own solutions might be.
There is a part two for this week and it comes in the form of three oracle cards that were pulled from Angels of Atlantis by Stewart Pearce and Richard Crookes & Blue Angel Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno. Typically I only do one set of cards and usually build them up from Tarot and Oracle Decks but there is a lot due to happen across these next 7 days, which is why I chose/was guided to do both. So lets take a look at these cards and see what they have to say for the week ahead.
Angels of Atlantis by Stewart Pearce and Richard Crookes & Blue Angel Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno.
Gabriel – Grace: Holding ones self in poise and grace even when things are challenging shows strength and character. You have no need to prove anything to anyone, including yourself; as in the eyes of source, the angels and all that is; you are already perfect and there is no need to be anything else. Grace is being able to ascend to a different vibration and allow the challenges to simply be. It may be needed and required when situations are harder than you would like them to be.
Elohim – Pathways of Light: To be calm in the centre of a storm, to be the light within the darkness or the unseen and light the way is sometimes all that is needed. The Elohim is also known as the name of the Divine, Source, All That Is or however you want to name them; so this is about not just being in the presence of Divinity but also being apart of the Divinity, whether that is a whole in the ground, a choir of angels or something in-between.
I AM The Emerald Goddess – Fetility: This is not just about growth and birth of ideas, this is about the expansion of being. Throughout everything that is happening and occurring in this week, there is a growth and birthing phase happening, we are learning very deep and potent lessons. We are seeing things in new light, understanding on a level that is perhaps deeper than first releasing and through that comes the changes both needed and also required.
Conclusion: This is a strong week, the cards are depicting a lot of change and growth. There is a lot of seeing both sides and having life held up to the mirror; it is not one that can be avoided and not one that can be put off to another week or year. We have the choice, to step aside and let it happen or we can actively decide to engage with this energy and ride the currents, see what is needed to be seen and deal with anything that needs to be cleared and dealt with. Rely on your inner sight and Goddess for the compassion, and rely on your inner divinity and ability to have grace to deal with everything else.
Thank you for stopping by, if you have experienced any of this in some form or another, please do let me know. Even if you haven’t seen it clearly be open to the experience none the less.
