Hello my friends, this is the week’s reading for my followers and Patreon supporters for the week of January 9th, 2022.

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!

My Week As A Whole is the Empress. Well, that’s a pretty good start isn’t it. This could mean sexuality, love, fertility or joy, but mostly it’s a connection to the Divine Feminine. What I find interesting about the tarot is how it relates to culture, because the very idea of gender, it’s roles and things like femininity is always changing. What does it mean to you, mothering, intuitive, seductive, mystical, or a combination of all of these? This week you might be able to find out how it reflects in you.

Something Unexpected That Will Arise is the 6 of Wands. Who doesn’t like unexpected praise and recognition. You know what, sometimes that can be a challenge. It’s hard sometimes to just gracefully accept a compliment, whether it comes from someone else, or us getting the chance to recognize and praise ourselves.

How can I Stay Grounded and Balanced? The 9 of Wands. More wands! As with other weeks, the key to staying grounded is to keep working at it. Not always easy to do, but you have the grit that it takes.

An Important Emotion I will Feel This Week is the Fool (reversed). You can feel the fool, but don’t act the fool. We don’t always know what we are doing, we don’t always like change. We can either melt down, or refuse to admit what we don’t know, or we can just go ahead and learn something new. 

Something That Will Inspire Me is the 10 of Swords (reversed). How can we be inspired by a card which reversed is absolutely talking about pain, loss, rejection and endings? I think we just talked about that with the Fool card above. It could even be as basic (but not simple) as saying “I’m not sure how I feel, or how to deal with this, so maybe I should admit that and find help.”

How Do My Spirit Guides Speak To Me This Week? The 7 of Wands. Lots of Wands this week, so lots of fire, and personal power, especially if directed. Your guides are telling you that you have the power to get through this, they believe in you. There might even be a chance for working with others as a team with someone.

How To Best Support Myself This Week is the 10 of Discs. Remind yourself that come what may, you will get through this. Seems like I said something similar last week too, almost like it’s a theme. Victory, whatever that means to you, is coming, just keep your eyes on that prize.

Looking at the reading as a whole, it’s one of those weeks where yeah, there is the potential for some difficulty, but it can be experienced as an opportunity to get to know that divine feminine and figure out how to express and embody that in yourself. And as I see the 10 of Discs the Beatles “I get by with a little help from my friends” jumped into my head. You don’t have to go this alone, be open to giving yourself a pep talk, be able to say you need an assist, and be willing to learn something new.
