weekly card reading 11.19.18.jpg

Monday 11/19 - This week starts off with the medicine of Salmon in the reversed position. Salmon take a very special journey each year, swimming upstream to their birthplace to spawn. The journey home doesn’t always have to be a physical one. How can you come back to yourself today and reclaim your essence? What lit you up as a child? When was the last time you laughed? If you have been struggling to feel connected to yourself, today is the day to engage with the very simplest pleasures and allow life’s beauty to heal you. You may also find that when you cultivate a frequency of joy, life responds kindly.

Tuesday 11/20 - Porcupine echoes the messages of Salmon and encourages us to bring more playfulness into our lives. No one said that being austere was a requirement for doing good work in the world. In fact, softness and a light heart can often get more done and without leaving us drained. In what areas of your life can you invite a spirit of curiosity? Is there a chip on your shoulder that is weighing you down? Release resentments and limiting beliefs and open yourself up to the sweetness of life.

Wednesday 11/21 - When Moose reversed shows up, it’s usually a sign that your self esteem may have taken a bit of a dip lately. Investigate why and then take steps to bring yourself back into alignment. If your actions haven’t been backing up your words or vision of yourself, it’s time to change that. If you’ve noticed yourself feeling jealous of others, flip the script and turn your feelings into aspirations. You have the power to  create whatever you want in your own life so stop focusing on how green the grass looks in others’ yards and starting watering your own.

Thursday 11/22 - Raccoon brings the medicine of community. Multiple minds coming together to achieve one goal. Each individual doing their part and sharing in the rewards. How can you be a better team player today? Are there sacrifices you can make for the greater good that ultimately support your wellness too? There’s a special kind of fulfillment that comes from being part of something greater than yourself and today is a wonderful day to give yourself that gift.

Friday 11/23 - Turkey follows up Raccoon and only further drives home the importance of giving back to the community, and you can start by raising your awareness around the needs of those around you and finding ways to support them. Sometimes the simplest gestures can greatly lessen the burdens of others. Offer an ear, a smile, your generosity, your time and efforts, or any other form of energy you feel able to share with an open and warm heart.  

Saturday 11/24 - This weekend, Frog encourages us to let go, to release, and to cleanse anything from your life that is holding you back from being your truest, most vibrant self. Healing is sometimes more about clearing away obstacles to health than it is about bringing on new habits. What patterns of thought or behavior are no longer serving you? And more importantly, what will it take for you to be free from them?

Sunday 11/25 - Jaguar reversed is a warning that you may have been out of integrity lately. Are you living in a way that is true to your values and who you wish to be in the world? If not, it’s never too late to reconnect with your truth and then embody it in all that you do. Spend some time today reflecting on what kind of impact you wish to make on the world around you. Even small shifts in the energy you bring into interactions can make a huge difference in your life and of those around you.
