Apologies for this late reading - I have had to adjust with the school holidays upon us.
Challenges are abound this week, both in your personal life and in society as a whole. You are asked to remove yourself from drama and the turmoil of those around you, and focus instead on you and your emotional healing and stability so you can build the reserves and resilience you need, not just for this week, but for the next few months beyond winter and into next year. Things (e.g. legalities) put in place this week (either in your life or in the wider world) will affect the future.
A key to preparing will be traditional meditative and spiritual practices that connect us to our ancestral lineage and wisdoms of the past, and more practically, what did your grandparents and great grandparents teach you? It's time to take heed of these lessons and listen for more. Incorporate them into your life and apply them practically for what could be a slightly stormy winter, financially as well as anything else. Our material and physical needs may very well be tested, and this always triggers primal fears of survival if we are not aware and prepared. But there are always solutions - please know this and remember this. You are asked to focus on the solutions.
The Wren appeared last week, too. Here he is again delivering important messages and news of what's to come. Do listen to him. Every day there is more news and information on what is coming down the line - the key is to know what is relevant to YOU and you alone (or you and your community), otherwise you are just bombarded with useless info. If you listen to your ancestors and guides, you will better hear the guidance meant for you and know which way you are supposed to go. It really is an inner-wisdom kind of thing - it's about instinct and connection. The Wren warns not to be impulsive, but also not to be afraid to be controversial and do things differently, especially if you can clearly see how it can be done.
Crystal Healing Tip
Work with Lemurian quartz crystals, Citrine stones, iron-based stones, Red Jasper; green, earthy stones and any stone or crystal you have which help you connect to the wisdom of your ancestors and the nourishment of the earth.
I have also recently created The Aquarian Lion Essence. Contact me for information about purchase.
It's hard for me to put into words the energies I've felt permeating the earth over the past week, so I'm going to go straight into the Reading and let the cards speak. I will say, though, I have slept much more deeply and peacefully the past few nights than I have in a while.
The wren takes centre stage in this Reading. Not only does it feature as the central card, but it has found The Hooded Man and is whispering secrets to him. The wren is reminding him of his life path and his soul's mission; of what his true desire is and to question if he really wants to proceed in the direction he is going. It might be passing on some important information or a piece of wisdom, too.
You are encouraged to take time out next week. Do not rush impulsively into anything, but retreat and ask if the next step is really what you want. Are you being true to you? Are you still upholding your values?
Your values (your spiritual path; your work; your mission; who you are and want to be) requires dedication. It requires hard work and commitment, and sometimes, the ability to do things differently to how others have done things before you, or how they are doing things right now. Your song is yours alone and only you can hear it; in fact, only you can play it. You are asked to stop and take time to go within; meditate; perhaps do some esoteric study or philosophical soul-searching. The wren does caution you to know your subject well, as well as know yourself well.
You may receive some important or interesting piece of news next week; perhaps an opportunity - do pay attention to it. Research it. And follow it through if you feel it forms part of your life path. But make sure you fully understand why it is you choose what you choose.
On a spiritual level, you may find your psychic centre tingling with activity next week. You may receive great insight into a situation (it may even feel prophetic) that will be hard to explain to others, but you'll just know. Only you can decide what to do with such insight. This is a time of great learning.

Lapis Lazuli is a fantastic stone to work with when retreating and going within to find that inner light. It will help you with your spiritual connection and your psychic vision.

Two small things took place this week which I took note of because they felt significant:
Now ... on with the reading for this coming week....
Relationships will play a highly important role next week, specifically soulmate or soul contract types of relationships. It doesn't necessarily have to be of a romantic nature (although it might be), but could be any significant relationship where you feel the connection is otherworldly or strong (for good or bad - often soulmate relationships are here to challenge us!).
There is a sense of completion around the corner, as if something karmic is coming to a close - finally. If not completion, then perhaps circumstance changes and flips on its head, and you finally find you can move forward with something important that will help you secure something foundational. There is a hint that money, or news about something financial (or something that means security to you) could come your way, and it enables you to move onto the next phase of your plan or journey.
But there is also a sense that the above opportunity will only happen if you talk to your significant soul-contract other to iron things out and make sure you're on the same page. In fact, the good news and the turn of the wheel might only happen if you're on the same wavelength, for it is this togetherness that creates the force needed to break blockages and bring new opportunities to you. Try and be prepared, because if this is you, things could move very, very fast all of a sudden, after a period of feeling quite stuck.
You might find yourself moving house next week, or physically moving somewhere for some reason with your partner or a significant other.
Whatever happens, and whatever situation you are in, do look for opportunities next week as there will be plenty. Gifts will be available to you - whether you choose to take them or not will, of course, be your choice.
Work together with your significant other (or your soul-contract other) - two are better than one next week, and this actually applies to all relationships across the board. It's a good week to practice our humanity and ability to get on with one another; to create something new together that will bring solidity for the future.

Before I start, I'd like to say that this page of the website will begin to incorporate other posts and articles I've written in the past, and I may move some of them from my Ko-Fi page to here. If you are signed up to the RSS feed, you may get these articles, too, as they get published.
Please do have a look at my last video post on this page which delivers the Monthly Energy Reading I intuited for July. A lot is said there and is, of course, relevant for this first week of the month.
My dreams over the past week have been standard if somewhat weird, and are all about sorting through fears and unresolved issues, and trying to make sense of things that seem nonsensical. They've been a bit "Tim Burton" if you get my drift, and resonate quite well with the Moon card that came up below! There have been no specific worldly messages in dreams of late. Rather, the sense that it is important to try and ground energies and manifest the future in a solid way, yet the feeling of having to swim through the astral plane to do it, where everything is murky and uncertain. Let's look at the cards for the week coming up:
We have two earth cards - and two court cards - surrounding the major arcana Moon, and the Moon takes centre stage here, telling us that no matter how much we try to ground ourselves and be very practical in how we approach life, the extraordinary and weird will make an appearance to throw us off and make us think about things differently; make us stretch our boundaries. Indeed, this could also be found within our dreams, which we should take special note of next week, but because of the cards surrounding it, I would say the Moon's influence is more likely to hit us in real life. Things that should be straight-forward might not be. Things that should make sense, won't. The supernatural might come calling.
There may well be an element of deception in the air from others or your surroundings, and it would be wise to consider what might be going on behind your back or hidden out of sight. The Hebrew letter associated with the Moon card means "back of the head". There is much here that is unseen and you will have to feel your way using intuition rather than logic.
We will certainly want to get on and try to make plans and move ourselves forward - that is evident in the Knight of Coins - and aspects to do with travel or travel arrangements might blindside us if we are not prepared. The Knight of Coins always suggests we would do well to prepare and study [the terrain before us] before taking off in any direction. There is no speediness to next week - everything points to delays or - if you are patient - a slow and steady pace. So ... don't be hard on yourself and accept that things might not go to plan or might take a tiny bit longer than you had hoped. Have a plan A, B, and C for any task or endeavor.
Finally, there is a suggestion that we will be fruitful in our ventures despite any setbacks. The Queen of Coins is a lovely presence which relays that with discipline, practical knowledge combined with empathy, and gentle perseverance, we will break through the barrier of that lunar murkiness and find ourselves landing on our feet. Do offer support to others if they need it this week - this Queen is a giver, a nurturer, and very much like the strong maternal mother or grandmother who is wise and not afraid to lend a hand because she knows her own boundaries so well. Helping others where we can (within good boundaries) could be key to getting us through the next week more easily.

The below are a list of blog articles about spiritual experiences, shamanic healing, and more, that I've written over the past couple of years. Some of them are open to all to read and some are available only to my supporters on Ko-fi because of their more personal nature (these are marked as SO). Either way, I hope you find them inspiring and/or useful in some way.
