October2022 Musings... 31st October 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Pre-Raphaelite Tarot for our medium today. This is a Rider- Waite style deck with the traditional symbolism & characters reflected in the style of Pre-Raphaelite art & featuring some familiar faces for those familiar with the style! The vibrant colours & romantic scenes are captivating & reflect the archetypes perfectly. I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 7 of Swords. This card has quite a reputation for heralding the unexpected. People don’t like the unexpected so it tends to be interpreted as potentially challenging. However, the surrounding cards indicate that this week, it’s the inner “sacred rebel” that seeks to come to fore! Things can only change for the better when you embrace change! And this week, it’s those moments where you break with tradition or subvert your own routines that reveal opportunities for growth. Make sure you keep yourself well grounded with nourishing food & time in nature. Giving yourself the time & space to process change allows change to feel less daunting & more exciting! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week this comes in the form of the Knight of Pentacles. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. The Knight of Pentacles cautions us to avoid getting caught up in the red tape we’ve surrounded ourselves in. If you tend to plan, then replan for all the eventualities & get a little too bogged down in the details, this week, that’s something to keep in check. The 7 of Swords is about doing things differently – and the Knight of Pentacles is about not doing things differently – so you may feel a little ambivalent! But a change is as good as a rest – and making changes this week will progress your healing path. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 31st October 2022…2 of Pentacles…Focus on the task at hand & be methodical in your approach to today. Rushing or multi-tasking makes way for mistakes & misery. Slow down & pay attention to the fine print. The Universe reminds you that magick is found in the space between things & that magnificence multiplies in the margins of your life. Affirm: ”Step by step I progress the path to prosperity” Tuesday 1st November 2022…9 of Pentacles…Comfort & copious opulence is in the offing today. This energy surrounds you like a magickal mantle of lushness, luxury & love. The Universe reminds you that every day is a special occasion. Being alive is a blessing worthy of celebration. So enjoy that cake, dance like no-one’s watching & shine like the star you are! Affirm: “My life is supernova of soulfulness” Wednesday 2nd November 2022…King of Swords…Your words shape your reality. Harsh words have unintended consequences so consider your communication today. The Universe reminds you that you are the co-creator of your life & your intentions determine the definition of your day. Intend brilliance, beauty & blessings & allow the life of your dreams to begin. Affirm: “I align myself with new opportunities to shine” Thursday 3rd November 2022…Ace of Swords…Your mind is your most powerful tool for healing! Open yourself to inspirational input from the invisible realms by spending time in meditation. The Universe reminds you that the words “Magick” and “Imagination” have the same root. Gain greater magickal manifestations in your life by writing down your hopes, goals & gratitude list today. Affirm: “Brilliance abounds & blessings surround me” Friday 4th November 2022…Knight of Swords…Today’s the day for massive progress in pursuit of your wildest ambitions! Make the most of your flow state by taking action on your to-do list. Channel your energy into imagining how well things could go. The Universe reminds you that he who dares, wins. Dare to dream! Dare to deviate! Dare to defy your own expectations! Affirm: “Beauty & joy envelop & elevate me” Saturday 5th November 2022…The Hierophant…Today, be open to guidance from experienced friends & experts as essential support is being offered to you. Ancient wisdom becomes new opportunity when thoughtfully applied to your life. Feel the supportive presence of ancestral power during your spiritual practice. The Universe reminds you that aligning with tradition can help you to pursue progressive paths.

Recognise the richness of your life to replenish & refresh your spirit. Express appreciation for the abundance & blessings that fill your world. The Universe reminds you that a positive attitude takes you halfway to happiness! Affirm: “Always & in all ways, I prosper” 24th October 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Ceccoli Tarot for our medium today. This is my all-time favourite soul-deck! It’s beautiful, sweet & dark all at the same time. The deck isn’t true to the original Rider-Waite system because it’s created from pre-existing artwork – but somehow, that just makes it more interesting for me to work with! I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 10 of Cups. This card reminds us to lean into the emotionally supportive relationships we have this week. If you’re feeling apprehensive or stressed, talking it out with a friend or spending time with loved ones will bring you healing & happiness. Our connection with loved ones is energetic & sharing energy can increase the flow of life-force, bring healing & restore equilibrium. Spending time in nature can replenish your energy & help you to find grounding. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week the good news is that no impediments or energetic incursions are anticipated! Rather, the presence of the Empress in this position indicates opportunities for growth & potent manifestations of prosperity in the offing. The Empress has a familial & ancestral energy that reminds us that we are never alone & unsupported. Beings of light & love surround us at all times because the connections formed through love & kinship are eternal. Remember you are loved. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 24th October 2022…6 of Pentacles…Centre your soul on compassion & share your light with those around you. Align with your generous spirit to manifest mountains of prosperity & plenty that pave your path. Your passion project is the life of your dreams! The Universe reminds you that doing what you love is the road to success. Affirm: “Always & in all ways, I prosper” Tuesday 25th October 2022…The Hanged Man…Step outside of the rituals & routines of your regular life. Take the time to relax your mind with energy healing or meditation. Turn anxiety-inducing thought patterns on their head by interrupting them with intentional silence. The Universe reminds you that when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Affirm: “I am open to new ways of being” Wednesday 26th October 2022…2 of Pentacles…Work hard so you can play hard! Everything is lined up for success today. If multi-tasking is your modus operandi, switch up your routine by focusing on one thing at a time. Giving your full attention to each task manifests magick! The Universe reminds you to keep your eyes on the prize & your heart high. Affirm: “Abundance abounds & surrounds me” Thursday 27th October 2022…8 of Cups…Release emotional attachments that connect you with the past & hold you back. Exciting & expansive opportunities exist beyond your beliefs. Forgive the past. Forgive yourself. The future is coming into focus. The Universe reminds you that life is like riding a bicycle: to keep your balance, you must keep moving. Affirm: “Balance brings blessings & brilliance to bear” Friday 28th October 2022…The Star…Look up! Celestial bodies & energetic tides are aligned in your favour. Nothing’s stopping you from making a soul- felt wish today. Fortune favours the free & fabulous, so choose to shine like the star you are. Expressing your inner magick makes a magickal life. The Universe reminds you that nothing can dim the light that shines from within. Affirm: “My light is the light of limitless love” Saturday 29th October 2022…Knight of Pentacles…Slow down & seek soul- nourishment in opulent & opportune self-care rituals. The most powerful healing is the healing you give to yourself. Soothe your frayed edges by showing yourself kindness & patience today. The Universe reminds you that you can’t pour from an empty cup, so take care of yourself first. Affirm: “I embrace & embody the wholeness of my soul” Sunday 30th October 2022…6 of Wands…Give yourself a round of applause! Your hard work & devotion to development sets you apart from your peers. Your success is admirable & admired. Don’t hold yourself back to fit in with people who hold themselves back. The Universe reminds you that being all you can be is the true expression of your sacred spiritual self. Affirm: “Effortless excellence is my way of life” 17th October 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Guardian of the Night Tarot for our medium today. This is a newish deck to my collection & one I’ve been strongly drawn as the seasonal tides shift. The card symbolism is nature-centric & these animal- based cards are rapidly becoming a favourite for me! I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 2 of Pentacles. This card recommends us to focus on maintaining a healthy balance this week. “All work & no play makes Jack a dull boy” reminds us that a lack of balance can negatively affect us & those around us. Temper your work ethic with a relaxation ethic this week to ensure you don’t overdo it! Set aside time for self-care, soul-nourishing creative activities, relaxation or meditation. Unwinding your mind creates space for better decision making & efficiency in other tasks. So go with the flow & don’t get too fixated on any one thing this week! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week this comes in the form of the Page of Wands. This is in no way a negative card but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. Taking into account the guidance of the first card, this card cautions us against trying to do too many things at once. Your passion & impetuousness could tie you up in knots this week by scattering your attention & energy. If you focus on too many things this week, you may end up competing with yourself & wasting your time. Seek balance & pace yourself. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 17th October 2022…8 of Swords…The apparent limitations you face today might all be in your mind. Open your heart to see beyond the boundaries your thoughts have created. Spend time in meditation to identify which of your opinions are masquerading as facts. The Universe reminds you that your beliefs define your reality & your destiny. Affirm: “I choose a life of prospering potential” Tuesday 18th October 2022…The High Priestess…Your intuition has important guidance for your spiritual path. Spend time in silent meditation to tune in. Bathing rituals can help you to slow down your thoughts & relax in order to deeply connect with your sacred soul. The Universe reminds you that you are a spiritual being having a human experience. Affirm: “I honour my intuition as the voice of my soul” Wednesday 19th October 2022…7 of Swords…Whatever you had planned for today, shelve it! New opportunities for opulent living are in the offing but you’ll find them where you least expect. Don’t be stressed by last minute changes – be blessed by the divine redirection! The Universe reminds you that you change is inevitable & continual: Trust the process! Affirm: “I pursue the path to wholeness & happiness” Thursday 20th October 2022…3 of Wands…Stand back & take a look at the landscape of your life to identify new paths to prosperity & progress. Uncharted avenues for expansion & evolution are open to you. Direct your energy carefully & maintain your high ideals. The Universe reminds you that life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Affirm: “I embrace my limitless light & shine” Friday 21st October 2022…Judgement…It’s time to make way for the magick by letting go of whatever’s been getting in your way. Outmoded thinking & obsolete connections may need to be dissolved so that you can ascend to the next chapter. The Universe reminds you that growth comes from the unlearning of old habits. Affirm: “I am reborn & renewed every day & in every way” Saturday 22nd October 2022…9 of Pentacles…Appreciate your abundant life & recognise your riches! Your life is a reservoir of peace & plenty. Cultivate optimism, fortitude & gratitude to ground yourself in the luxuriousness of life. The Universe reminds you that where your attention goes, your energy flows; choose to look on the bright side to nurture new & prosperous prospects. Affirm: “Goodness & greatness suffuse my soul” Sunday 16th October 2022…Ace of Pentacles…Sow the seeds for a future of favourable fortunes. Progress yourself by learning something new or make a change in your routine that will support the future you want to see. What you do for yourself today, pays dividends in the future. The Universe reminds that what truly benefits you, benefits all. Affirm: “I am the co- creator of my life: I choose abundance” 10th October 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Tarot of Mystical Moments for our medium today. This deck features dream-like surrealism with evocative & colourful symbolism that gives me a lot to draw from! The images are beautiful but have enough depth & drama to speak clearly. I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the King of Pentacles. This card reminds us to tend to any necessary “home magick” this week. This could be an effort to cleanse the energy within your home if there’s been a lot of stress or upset recently, or it could be a chance to find your grounding & soothe your soul by looking after your immediate environment. Perhaps you need to declutter the “clutter drawer” or put the summer clothes back in the top of the wardrobe? Or simply carve out some time for a mindful tidy-up. When you’re looking after your home, you’re looking after yourself & nurturing your spirit by providing yourself with a place to breathe, belong & be yourself. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week the good news is that there’s no opposition anticipated. The presence of The Chariot in this position indicates that progress & positive change is on the horizon for those who act with determination. By taking action on your home-magick & channelling your energy into creating a safe, secure & sacred environment for yourself, you will be setting yourself up for further success. When you move, the Universe moves with you. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 10th October 2022…The Hermit… Take a break from negative thinking by diligently disregarding your inner critic today. Look for the light within & it will illuminate the world around you. Spend time in meditation to slow down your racing mind. The Universe reminds you that you have untapped reservoirs of wisdom in your soul. Affirm: “I am guided by the limitless light within” Tuesday 11th October 2022…10 of Pentacles…Opportunities to optimise abundance are in the offing. Open yourself to opulence & pursue the paths of prosperity & pleasure. Whatever you do today, focus on all you have to be grateful for to maintain the momentum of your manifesting magick! The Universe reminds you that you are loved & supported by divine forces. Affirm: “My life is a source of magick & magnificence” Wednesday 12th October 2022…The Sun…You’re unstoppable today! Nothing can diminish your shine when your light comes from within. Seek out the fun & supercharge every second of sunshine by adding your celebration to the mix. Your smile lights up the lives of those around you! The Universe reminds you that you are made of the same stuff as the stars. Affirm: “In light & love my spirit shines” Thursday 13th October 2022…7 of Swords…Embrace originality & surprise yourself by breaking with convention. Subvert your plans by allowing the day to unfold without resistance. Go with the flow & trust in the goodness & greatness of your spirit to guide you. The Universe reminds you that you are amazing & your authenticity is sacred. Affirm: “I am strong & sure in my sovereignty” Friday 14th October 2022…3 of Cups…Your life is a source of endless enchantment. Don’t keep your happy dance on standby so long you forget the choreography! If things are feeling stale, celebrate the small stuff so you can practice your happy dance for the soul-enriching goodness coming up! The Universe reminds you that your intentions determine your destiny. Affirm: “I am grateful for all I have, all I am & all I love” Saturday 15th October 2022…9 of Cups…Make a wish because the Universe is feeling generous today! Open yourself to optimism & explore your deepest desires by putting them into words. Half the magick is made when you make a soulful decision. The Universe reminds you that all good things come to those who believe all good things are possible. Affirm: “Step by step, I dance towards my dreams” Sunday 16th October 2022…Knight of Cups…Your heart sings the song of your soul & that song is all about love. Recognise the people in your life that inspire you & realise that everyone’s contribution to life is sacred & sublime. The Universe reminds you not to doubt your divinity because you are a Child of the Universe. Affirm: “I am beloved & blessed in every moment” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. 3rd October 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Tarot of Mermaids for our medium today. This is a Rider- Waite style deck but with all of the traditional cards styles in an underwater landscape with mermaids reflecting the characters. These are a perfect deck to reach for when working with Lemurian or water-based energy! So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 3 of Cups. In this position, things couldn’t be better! Occasions to celebrate & share good times with friends & family are heading your way this week. The 3 of Cups points to success & an increase in happiness & hope. Maintaining a positive attitude will help you to recognise the brilliance & blessings around you. A grateful heart will help you to draw power & healing from the good times that propel you toward new opportunities. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 9 of Wands. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. The presence of this card warns us that fear or rigidity could block us from recognising the demonstrations of abundance around us this week. If you notice your thoughts seem more aligned with your past than your future, set aside some time for meditation, relaxation & consideration to get yourself back on track. If you draw all your beliefs, feelings & thoughts from the past, then your future will be a recreation of the past. If that’s not your goal, it’s time to recalibrate! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 3rd October 2022…Page of Wands…It’s time to get excited about the future! Visualise the life of your dreams & invest your energetic creation with passion & promise. See yourself smile with satisfaction as you drive in the direction of a desirable destiny. The Universe reminds you that thoughts become things – so control your mind. Affirm: “I am open to a life of prosperity & progress” Tuesday 4th October 2022…Ace of Wands…Be ready to act because today presents portals of promise to enchant & inspire you! Keep your eyes open for repeating symbols & numbers. Increase your authentic soul-expression by putting your energy into the things that make your heart smile. The Universe reminds you that you are supported & loved for all you are. Affirm: “My life is the story of my soul” Wednesday 5th October 2022…Page of Swords…Where you place your attention, you place your energy. Be attentive to your thoughts & temper your judgements. Negative self-talk is a self-inflicted curse. Identify the ideas that propagate lack & limitation & supplant them with ideas of abundance & authenticity. The Universe reminds you that fear is the enemy of love. Affirm: “In all things & in all ways, I choose love” Thursday 6th October 2022…The Hanged Man…Set yourself apart from the drama & take some time for self-care. Energy healing, meditation or yoga create a sacred & soothing sanctuary where you can nourish your soul & catch up with yourself. The Universe reminds you that you are loved beyond your wildest dreams by the source of your spirit. Affirm: “My soul is a source of tranquillity & triumph” Friday 7th October 2022…The World…Everything’s coming together & you’re at the centre of it! Appreciate the magick & majesty that surrounds you & recognise the part you played in creating a life you love. Give yourself a round of applause & the Universe will echo that! The Universe reminds you that your inner-light has a divine source. Affirm: “I am always aligned with abundance & authenticity” Saturday 8th October 2022…8 of Pentacles…Keep up the good work. Practice makes perfect & you’re you’re well on your way to success! Be methodical & remember that slow & steady wins the race. Cultivate curiosity & learning something new becomes an adventure!

Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Guardian of the Night Tarot for our medium today. This is a newish deck to my collection & one I’ve been strongly drawn as the seasonal tides shift.

Temper your work ethic with a relaxation ethic this week to ensure you don’t overdo it! Set aside time for self-care, soul-nourishing creative activities, relaxation or meditation. Unwinding your mind creates space for better decision making & efficiency in other tasks. So go with the flow & don’t get too fixated on any one thing this week! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week this comes in the form of the Page of Wands. This is in no way a negative card but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. Taking into account the guidance of the first card, this card cautions us against trying to do too many things at once. Your passion & impetuousness could tie you up in knots this week by scattering your attention & energy. If you focus on too many things this week, you may end up competing with yourself & wasting your time. Seek balance & pace yourself. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead.

I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the King of Pentacles. This card reminds us to tend to any necessary “home magick” this week. This could be an effort to cleanse the energy within your home if there’s been a lot of stress or upset recently, or it could be a chance to find your grounding & soothe your soul by looking after your immediate environment. Perhaps you need to declutter the “clutter drawer” or put the summer clothes back in the top of the wardrobe? Or simply carve out some time for a mindful tidy-up. When you’re looking after your home, you’re looking after yourself & nurturing your spirit by providing yourself with a place to breathe, belong & be yourself. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week the good news is that there’s no opposition anticipated. The presence of The Chariot in this position indicates that progress & positive change is on the horizon for those who act with determination.

Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind.

This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. The presence of this card warns us that fear or rigidity could block us from recognising the demonstrations of abundance around us this week. If you notice your thoughts seem more aligned with your past than your future, set aside some time for meditation, relaxation & consideration to get yourself back on track. If you draw all your beliefs, feelings & thoughts from the past, then your future will be a recreation of the past. If that’s not your goal, it’s time to recalibrate!
