Hello my friends, it’s been a while. I needed to take a break from this blog for a while because I got busy with other stuff. That will most likely happen again, so don’t despair. Unless I’m dead, I’m likely to return when the time is right.
I do have a blog that I maintain a more regular schedule with and that is my main blog, Angelorum. This is one of my ‘fringe blogs’ that I use for indulging in my passion for the Lenormand.
In the Tarot Geekery group we have been working with Tarot for Your Self by Mary K Greer since 1 Feb. This has meant daily 3-card body-mind-spirit draws for just over a month for me. While I enjoyed doing the daily draws, I’m ready to start mixing it up and introduce a weekly draw.
For the weekly draw, I thought it would be nice to use Lenormand cards together with another Oracle. You will see me changing the Oracle deck I use for spiritual guidance from time to time but will stick with the Gilded Reverie Lenormand Expanded Edition for the week ahead readings.
While I do consider this guidance for myself, I am not excluding others from gaining insights from these readings. Perhaps you were drawn to this blog today by synchronicity rather than chance?
In some ways, I’m fairy certain this message is not just for me. Do let me know in the comments if the following resonates:
We are in a waning Moon week this week a time to ‘lighten the load’ and release any heavy, negative, oppressive and unproductive influences from our lives.
White is a card I connect with Archangel Gabriel. The message here is to lighten up and remove any darkness covering the light of the soul now. This is a process that takes courage. In the Tarot we see Archangel Gabriel depicted on the Judgement Tarot card… Definitely NOT a card for wusses!
To lighten up we must first acknowledge the darkness and how it has affected us. Then we may bathe in light and release that which is due for transmutation.
Archangel Gabriel is the ruler of the Moon, a sign that the Moon is a main player in the week ahead. Archangel Gabriel is also the Angel to turn to for help with alignment with our life purpose – especially true for anyone who is a messenger of the divine, Seer, spiritual teacher/writer, reader or oracle.
Thus we are in a week of purification in the days leading up to the New Moon…
- What must go?
- What is dying from your life now?
- What has been holding you back from fulfilling your true potential for too long?
- What negative self-talk needs to stop?
- What bad/unproductive habits are you ready to release?
- What toxic influences have you entertained because you thought it might help someone else?
- What light and hope are you ready to make room for this New Moon?
Pink and Magenta
Pink and Magenta are cards that I connect with Archangel Anael. Anael is the ‘Angel of Love’ and corresponds with the Heart Chakra/Higher Heart Chakra. Archangel Asariel (Ruler of Neptune) is also connected with the Higher Heart Chakra.
The message is one of heart/higher heart healing and working. If you have been in an environment so toxic that you have felt it necessary to harden your heart, you know that environment is not one you should be in. It could be that events recently have triggered old memories of abuse or that you have seen larger pattern at work in the world that really sadden and anger you.
Whatever the reason is for this hardening of the heart, it is time to release the burden of that dark, toxic energy now. Invoke the Angel of Love for help with this and visualise a soft pink light bathing and healing your heart. Place a piece of rose quartz over your heart chakra to strengthen the effect of your visualisation.
See any dark, sludgy energy being washed away and down through your root/feet chakras to be transmuted into pure love by Mother Earth. Thank Her.
Dreamwork with the Angels
Archangels Gabriel and Asariel both rule the Astral realm and can be invoked for guidance and deep wisdom. Before you go to sleep, focus on a point above your heart chakra and ask for a Higher Heart awakening, so that you can unfold a destiny of unconditional love. Pray to be guided as you sleep about anything your heart wants you to know now. Focus on the colour magenta over your heart/higher heart chakra as you drift off comfortably to sleep. Do this exercise every night this week and don’t forget to record your dreams.
For the Lenormand week ahead reading (see image at top of post) we have Lily + Anchor + Ship. The numbers of the cards add up to 68/14 Fox for the overall theme.
This tells us that there is someone in your environment (near or far) who is a dishonest and unscrupulous sort of type. It could be a frenemy/lover/ex or it could be someone in business for themself whom you have had the misfortune of coming across. They may have taken advantage of you or someone you love in some way. Their influence is fading now and it’s time to move on, without looking back!
Lilies + Anchor speak of establish lasting peace and contentment and Ship says that in order to do so, you must move on from this situation. Focus on that distant shore of happiness and leave that person in the dust on the other side of the Ocean.
Lilies here, together with Fox as the overall theme, also indicates that the person you need to remove yourself completely from is someone you looked up to as an authority figure in the past. You may have respected them but they never respected you.
For some of you this is about changing jobs. It may take a while to find the ideal replacement but the key is to set things in motion to leave this week. Just be careful to keep your cards close to your chest.
If this resonates more as a love relationship or the influence of a friend/family member, you will probably find that removing this person from your life entirely means changing phone numbers or blocking their number on your phone, as well as blocking them on social media.
You don’t want to leave room for them to stay connected once you have established that it is in your best interested to remove their influence from your life. You may also wish to consider psychic protection and shielding if that is something you do. Energy hygiene is important for a clean break!
By the time the New Moon rolls around again on the 17th, you should be well on your way to a brighter future, feeling lighter and happier than you have in a long time.
