Hello my friends, this is the week’s reading for my followers and Patreon supporters for the week of July 4th, 2021.

I release the reading to the public on Wednesdays, so if you want to get the reading on Sunday so you have it for the entire week, sign up for my Patreon at just the $5 a month level. And if you are already a Patreon supporter, thank you so much!

I’m using the *Witches Wisdom tarot this week and a new spread that I like. Let’s see what you think.

The first card is the Energy of the Week Ahead, which is 4 of Fire reversed. The 4 is about the hearth and home, family and security. Reversed I don’t tend to think this means anything bad will happen in those areas, it feels more like a reminder that we are going to have to leave our dens this week. The energy of the week might demand some time out of the home, something we are all at some level trying to get used to again.

Next is What We Should Focus On, which is Healing. A reminder that we are not invincible, nor are we designed to be. But with rest and time we can heal. So what wounds are hurting you? Are they physical, mental, or emotional? 

What Challenges Will This Week Have brings us the 5 of Fire reversed. Lot’s of reversed fire energy in this spread, interesting. The 5 of Fire is about choices. Like fire can sometimes be helpful or destructive, so too are our choices. Also a card that speaks of healing because it asks if your pain makes you reach out for others, or if it makes you withdraw to be bitter and angry.

What Is Working In Our Favor is the 10 of Earth. There is a vast network in the soil, trees and fungi communicate with each other, connections like the neurons of our minds. You cannot see a mushroom, without seeing the entire forest around it. The 10 of Earth is about interconnectedness.

OK, so there is some healing to be done this week, that much is clear. But we are not going to find it at home. Solitude or hiding our wounds away like our kits just isn’t going to work well. We need to get out, at least communicate, outwards. Healing is to be found in our network of loved ones. If there are decisions you need to make, talk to others who are in your network, get feedback and opinions so you can make the best choices. Keeping to yourself this week is like trying to hold onto a hot coal. 

Magical Work

Many times with communication and networking in the cards I might be tempted to say things like it’s a good time to sit in front of your altar and commune with Spirit. But I’m really feeling the pull that this is much more human based. So while it might not seem magical, we have to express that 10 of Earth and communicate with others. This week touch base with some people you might not have in a while. If you have a network of other people in your profession or a similar Spiritual path, make sure to say hello. If you have a favorite author perhaps it’s time to send them a note of appreciation. But most importantly, if you have identified something you need to heal, healing energy, advice, and even new ideas for how to do that healing can be found in your networks of associates. Given how withdrawn many of us are feeling from the pandemic, the act of reaching out might be the healing act in and of itself.

With the summer solstice in just a few hours (11:32 pm to be exact) I was feeling the energy of Freyr, and inspired by his magical boat, have done the rowboat reading using the Witches Wisdom tarot. 

Where we sit is the 4 of Fire, which is about comfort, family, and being safe at home. Chances are we are feeling pretty content right now. Perfect? No, but not too bad either. 

What we are leaving behind is the cards being silly, because for that we have the Sun. The solstice we will be leaving behind. The Sun is a card not only of brightness, but a card of challenging our darkness. If there have been shadows you have been fighting, this week you are going to put that struggle behind you. 

We are being steered by our two oars, and what a powerful combination! The Great Mother on the left oar (a bit of the subconscious) and the Ancestors at the right oar. Taken in combination I think we are looking at not even just human Ancestors, but ones of the lands, plants and animals of the places where we live (tying back to that 4 of Fire). We have the resources we need to move ahead, and we also have the wisdom of those who came before us.

Where we are going is the Witch of Water, which makes a lot of sense as we transition into Cancer in the zodiac. Water, emotions, and tides of both. How to embody and carry your emotions.

And lastly the lighthouse, what we need to know about, which is the 3 of Air, which is about having perspective. 

The word that really sticks out to me this week is one associated with the Witch of Water, and that word is Permission. Where you are sitting right now is great, and it’s a good spot to start some needed emotional work. You are guided and you have the resources you need. So the Witch of Water is giving you permission to embody those emotions. Take a closer look at that 3 of Air. Notice the hurons are leaving behind some dark and turbulent water? The lighthouse is reminding us that if the waters get too dark and turbulent to get a better perspective. Don’t get stuck in those waters. Because with the Sun in the position of what we are leaving behind, the time to really dig into the shadows is passing too. We don’t need to keep shining a light into every single dark corner we have, what we need to do is learn to embody or carry the emotion we have. 

 

Magical Work

Keeping it simple this week. Every morning drink a glass of nice cool water. Remember the things you are grateful for, and that you have the ability, indeed even the permission, to manifest your emotions in a good way.

This week I am using the Four Directions spread with the Starman tarot.

The South is associated with Hatun Amaru, the great serpent, she who helps us with healing and transformation, and also with the physical world. For the South card I have drawn The Lovers. It is easy to associate Hatun Amaru with Kundalini energy, as the South often represents the physical selves as well as that sort of primal fire of creation energy. It could be that you are feeling that sensuality this week, but I am going to throw in some additional thoughts. Part of the Lovers as a card is seeking connection to others and another part, one that feels very relevant here, is the acceptance of ourselves. Find the beauty in your own body.

The West is associated with Otorongo, the jaguar, she who helps us with the past, and with setting healthy boundaries. For the West card I have drawn the Queen of Pentacles. The Queen is about nurturing and sharing the wealth. Given it’s position here with the connection to boundaries, and running off of that energy of the Lovers, I think it reinforces that need for connection. What else is love but the opening of the guarded places in our hearts? The Queen is aware of interconnected systems, and so is generous.

The North is associated with Siwar Kinti, the hummingbird, she who is the messenger between the worlds, and also the artist who is attracted to bright colors and wonderful flowers, and with Huanacauri the Dragon, she who helps us be steadfast and do things step by step, the right way. For this card I have drawn The Devil. Now we are getting really juicy! Here we are in the North thinking about doing things the right way, and of lovely flowers in the garden and who should show up but temptation. Super fascinating the way this is mirroring the South card. There in the South we have the Serpent and the Lovers, in the North we find the being that became the Serpent to cause division between Adam and Eve. In this position I imagine the key is knowing what tempts us. Why are we longing for connection, or even lust? What is it serving in us? What wisdom might we be hiding from ourselves?

The East is associated with Kuntor, the condor, she who helps us to have long range vision, to see the future, seeing things from a loving but detached perspective. For the East card I have drawn the Four of Swords. Darn no flaming swords, so there goes my Biblical metaphors, but it is at least a card of swords. The Four is about sitting in stillness, and allowing yourself rest before acting. Your plans will come together, but they cannot be rushed. Very appropriate for a card of Kuntor, but what is the overall story? 

The way it’s looking to me is that this week will have some fire and passion to it, very much about seeking what you desire. You are going to have to confront some of your own limitations, and accept yourself for the amazing person you are. There are going to be some temptations that make you want to take some shortcuts, and forget the rules as you grab a big ole bite of that apple. But, how can I put this mildly, the universe is going to be doing some other word for rooster blocking. Now you can get angry at the delays, or you can use them to form a better harmony, getting more in tune with you and what you’re really wanting because it’s not just some short term goal you are after, but something that will last. As the week progresses you’re going to see that work start to pan out. 

Magical Work

Ready for a challenge this week? Over the course of the week I want you to contact three friends or people you are close to. Ask those three friends to tell you at least a single thing they love about you. Don’t excuse or deflect what they tell you, take it in. In the spirit of reciprocity it would be kind to tell them something in return.

Now, when you have at least three things, go to the mirror, meet your own gaze if possible staring at your left eye, and repeat what you were told to yourself. No not “Sally said she loves my laugh” but just “I love my laugh” Reflect what they love about you deep into yourself and accept it fully. “Nicholas loves my compassion” becomes “I love my compassion”.

Reflect on how both giving and receiving these loving thoughts affects you.

We have quite the week ahead, with an eclipse happening on Thursday. Combined with Gemini energy, and a Mercury retrograde, there is a lot going on in the realms above. I have done a 3 card Eclipse spread, with 1 card placed, then two other cards covering it. I then opened the two cards to reveal the card beneath. For this spread I used the True Heart Intuitive Tarot.

The two outer cards are the 8 of Discs and the 10 of Discs reversed. The 8 says that hard work is about to pay off BIG, and encourages one to dive into the craft and practice.The 10 however is about that dream lost. Something failed, you were defeated, you are feeling stagnated.

That’s quite a combination, and they seem to be the opposite of each other, so let’s see what they are eclipsing. The 8 of Cups. Change, endings, new journeys. The weight of what has been holding you down is lifting and new events are ahead.

So, what can we gather out of this simple three card spread? I think the energy in the air, and the coming eclipse will be showing us this week what we need to move away from and what doors need to close. The dark surrounded by the ring of fire, combined with that retrograde making us look at the messages we receive and where they falter and where we are wasting our time.

The 8 of Discs is telling you that the work you have put in is it’s own reward, and it will pay off, but the 10 seems to me to be saying not in the way you think. How else could you apply your hard won skills in a way you might not have expected? Or perhaps even that the ambitions you had in mind might not pan out this week, but that you are more than capable of finding a brand new path. Focus on new opportunities that will allow your hard work to shine. At the very least know when to walk away from situations where your knowledge or skills are not appreciated.

Take a small piece of paper, and write one cycle you would like to change. It doesn’t have to be “getting rid” of something, but more of a different path. Say you are feeling frustrated that people are not hearing your music after you spent all winter practicing, so you would like to find some new ways for people to hear you play. Write that out, fold it tight, and place it on a mirror that the sun will touch the day of the eclipse. (the eclipse might not be visible where you are, but the energy is there). The mirror doesn’t need to be big, it could be a small makeup mirror, or without that perhaps a shiny piece of foil. After the eclipse put the folded paper near wear you work or practice for a few days while you work on creating the change you are seeking.
