Before I start on the reading for next week, I'd like to mention three new/updated pages on this site.
Now, on with the reading. It feels like a long time ago since last week's reading for me, and I think that's because I feel like a lot has taken place in the ether. Lots of things have shifted and there is a growing sense of either apprehension or purpose depending on where you are on your journey. It's exciting, but also scary. Here is what the cards have to say for next week...
Let's start with the good news! The good news is that whatever happens next week, you are going to come out of it okay and learn exactly what you're capable of and what your strengths are.
The bad news is that there's a big challenge to overcome.
News about travel, money, and security in general means you may have to stretch outside your comfort zone to find answers. Or it may be that you are keen to get an idea off the ground that has something to do with travel / money / security, but you have to go in a direction you've never been before. What's behind that door the child wants to open? What's in this mysterious house that looks so inviting? (And probably smells of gingerbread?)
Well, the Five of Challenges (Five of Swords) is in there. An ogre. A GIANT. He represents a huge problem, or the elephant in the room. You might need to throw him out of this house, or get around him to walk out the other door. The ogre brings a sense of danger, doom, and imprisonment - will he lock you in the house and never let you escape? Your fear might be huge, and you might feel defeated. You might have to sacrifice something to win this. Or you might decide to turn around and walk away because some things aren't worth sacrificing.
Whichever choice you make, the King of Boons (King of Coins) suggests you will succeed (in a way) and be able to make yourself at home / accomplish what you set out to accomplish. The suggestion is quite strong that you need to actually deal with the ogre rather than walk away. If you are the compliant sort who likes to follow rules, please people, and not create waves, you may find next week particularly hard. Because you can't be nice to a hot-tempered giant who wants to destroy you. But once the giant is defeated, the house is yours, and all the riches in it. More importantly, that sense of self-value will be yours because of the strength you showed and the courage you saw through. However...
There is an alternate ending: that you choose the option that will bring you more money, safety, or security whether you agree with it or not. The suggestion is also strong that practical needs must be catered for. Maybe you will allow the sense of defeat (from having to face the giant) to take hold and you will settle for material safety rather than a richer type of abundance. There is no wrong or right, by the way - some challenges are brutal. As ever, the choice is always yours. But remember, every ogre or giant in your life offers you the chance to overcome and change something that matters ... for good. If you don't face him now, you might have to again one day - perhaps he'll be stronger then. Perhaps you'll be stronger then. Sometimes it's worth waiting. You have to decide whether that's the case now - it may well be.
Crystal Healing Tip
Which crystal to use... Oooo, I don't know! The one at the end of Gandalf's staff? One that can shrink giants or make you impervious to them? Go for one that feels like it kindles your soul. That's where strength comes from ;)
I'm using a new, fun deck for next week's reading, that I got for my birthday. It really appeals to my love of gothic horror and romance, and dark fantasy.
I'm going to break up this reading into two parts, the first one focuses on a more personal "your every day life" interpretation, and the other looks at it from a global events perspective.
Personal Day-toDay Perspective and Guidance
Next week brings you an opportunity to get things moving and go faster. But you are asked to put yourself in the driving seat of your life. You may have to keep things close to your chest to get something done next week - perhaps even be a little bit deceptive - but it's so you can "escape" a situation and reclaim your life (or something about your life). You may have to rely on intuition and gut instinct when making a move, because some information is not available. Go within and listen to your inner guidance. Trust your higher wisdom and what your emotions are telling you because you may find yourself not sure whether you can completely trust a situation or where you are being led / what you are being told. Lastly, don't forget to take time to really listen to and acknowledge your feelings, and spend time around those that also do.
Global Events Perspective and Guidance
Global events are going to move fast now and there may be a feeling like nothing is in control, and you don't know where everything will end up. The sense of polarity may widen. People will feel like they need to get into the driver's seat and control things, which may lead to lots of voices and lots of opinions and lots of noise. Trust will be at a minimum (more so) because there will be a greater awareness that not everyone is receiving the full information of what is going on. There is a sense of either having to deceive or being deceived. The answer is to try and not be part of the disorganised noise. It is imperative to go within for the information not being shared. (Or to somewhere you might never usually go.) Trust in common sense and what is morally and emotionally right - instincts and intuition - and make decisions from there. Drive life forwards from there. Focus on the people who are offering kindness, friendship, compassion, and love, despite the deception and polarity in the world. And offer the same to others. That's how we cut through the crap that is playing out.
Crystal Healing Tip
Work with any crystal that takes you flying high like an eagle and seeing things from a wider angle: Moldavite; or clear quartz crystals, especially Tibetan and golden quartz, or ones with a diamond window where facets meet. An Amethyst with good clarity would also be helpful.

If you'd like a personal end-of-year / next-year forecast, please book in soon as it gets busy from December. One hour gives you an in-depth look at things including emotional highs and lows and how your current influences will create your future path (£60). Or a basic 6-month forecast can be done for 30 minutes (£30) - good if you already have a general idea of things, but need specific pointers. (These are costs for in-person Readings. Contact me for online options.)
I am also hoping to host a 40 minute Tarot evening on Zoom this coming Friday (19th). If you are interesting in being a part of that, please reply to this email and let me know. It will go ahead with enough people. Here are the details:
Topic: Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse Tarot Evening with Dianna
Time: Friday, Nov 19, 2021 at 19:30.
40 minutes of Tarot. Get your questions answered or listen to answers for others, as sometimes the messages for you are there, too. We'll also be tapping into the energies of the Full Moon in Taurus Lunar Eclipse (see video below).

This is a free evening, however, a suggested one-off donation for the Tarot Evening is £3 and if you donate via Ko-fi.com/wbw, it'll unlock you a few hidden videos and posts on my ko-fi page for a month as well as give you 10% off WBW Jewellery purchases for a month (great for Christmas gifts).
I'm posting this a tad late again this week - we have had two and a half weeks of birthdays in the Lounge, so timekeeping has taken a back seat. We should be back on track soon! For my Personal Guidance Tier Members on Ko-fi, you'll receive the Expansion of this reading late tonight.
Here is this week's reading....
Loud and clear, we are asked this week to think about health. Look how green the spread is. Questions about health need to be debated and talked about (see that Expression card? See the Health card?) - nothing must be censored and we must stop censoring ourselves. Everything needs to come out into the open for the new journey we are about to embark on, and this new journey is about harmony, balance, health and wellbeing; it's about the earth and how it provides for us; it's about our bodies and how they provide for us. It's about knowing who or what we serve and allow to provide for us.
The Queen of Discs (Expression) sits on her throne, very sure and very determined; very certain of who she is and the way ahead. She represents the material sensuality of the human race; our basic necessities, but also our passionate desires and pleasures - the constant balance between the two. (Which is more important?) She is paving the way for the Page of Discs (Health); for all who have less knowledge and surety than her to follow and learn. In time, she will teach the page to stand on his own two feet, but first come the lessons of The Green Man: sovereignty, nature and Spirit. Who are you? Where do you come from? Are those the same woods you walked out of many, many moons ago?
The Green Man says it's time to take a new path and live a new life - in the case of this spread, one that directly benefits our health and wellbeing. One that allows us expression of thought and choice. One that allows nature to provide for us - no other authority but nature considering all the green in the cards and the presence of The Green Man himself. This may well involve a leap of faith, or a leap into the dark, for the forest is dark in parts and many are nowadays scared of its wildness. Nevertheless, through the forest we have to go if we are to look after our health and wellbeing. The force of nature will be strong there, and we will have to face that, too. In fact, the valuable lesson we are about to undertake might just be a reminder that nature always wins and should.
The suit of Discs reflect the winter months - Samhain, Yule - and The Green Man, which represents the primal force, and the dawning of the new consciousness (the new path), suggests we will have to become much, much more uncomfortable in our lives (travelling through the dark forest) before that dawning fills our minds. Next week marks the beginning of this process. It could be that you, or others in your life, suddenly become aware of a health-related issue that makes you/them feel unstable and possibly frightened. The key to the problem is in the first card: Expression. Allow feeling, thinking, and talking to exist - do not let anyone silence you and do not silence anyone else; allow your realisations to expand you, and do not be afraid of the dark forest, but try to see it as the beginning of something brand new.
You would do well to take a practical and material approach to things for the winter - check in on your finances, know how you will feed yourself, pay for necessities, and start to understand your immediate environment. Look after your health now - exercise, eat well, be very aware of what you are taking into your body for it gives you form. If there was ever a spread that said, unequivocally, "look after your body", this is it. Expect nothing to happen fast next week - the suit of discs tends to suggest that things will unfold in their own time.
At the end of the forest (which could take months, or even years, to walk through) there is either good health, or ill health. Only you decide which it will be by which paths you take through the darkest parts of the forest.
The strongest image I take from these three cards is the Page of Discs - mankind in learning - on one knee, bowing down to The Green Man (nature).
Crystal Healing Tip
Work with chlorite (or chlorite in quartz), epidote, ruby in zoisite, or green calcite, all for centring yourself and connecting with both nature, and the nature you hold in your heart.
I apologise this Reading comes a bit later than usual. For my Personal Guidance Tier Members on Ko-fi, you'll receive the Expansion late tonight.
Let's get straight into the Reading which is very succinct for next week:
This is very much a week of action and the advice is that you must take action! Stop reminiscing on past "shoulds" and "shouldn'ts" and stop trying to guess what will happen if you do this or that. Instead, know what is right (because you do know in your heart) and just do it.
An important decision needs to be made - a decision about moving forwards and taking that action. Assume a leadership role in your life (or your job if the reading relates to a career circumstance) and lead the way. Ride on the strength of your conviction. No, you might not be popular with everyone - so what? Who cares when it's about integrity and what's right? It's time to take the reins of your life and steer the way ahead. It might not be easy, but if you don't take control of your life now, someone else will take control of it for you.
The road ahead after you've made this decision might well be challenging, but in the same way a difficult sports match is when you're playing and in pain and sweating and out of breath. Hold the vision of THE END in your mind - that's what you're striving for. That's what you're steering towards.
Go for it! And don't look back.
Crystal Healing Tips
Use shaman stones (moqui marbles) for the strength to forge ahead; for bringing forth the sacred person you know you are inside; and for balance as you take off into the unknown.
My Moon Readings are now free for all to see; take from them what you will. Moon Readings centre around the New and Full Moons which also tends to be where I centre work around the Munay-Ki and shamanic healing/training. Moon Readings are focused on the evolution of mankind and "the ladder of ascension", meaning what levels of higher consciousness we can strive for as we go into each phase of the moon, in relation to what is going on around us. Life ebbs and flows just like tides. These readings are about our journey as a species. (Unlike my weekly written readings, which tend to be about more practical, daily events in the week.)
This Moon's reading in the video below suggests we can tap into the force of destruction and things "breaking down" in order to build a new way of doing things with much fire and passion. Be brave enough to see a new perspective, no matter how hard. And take care to turn any anger into passion. There is always, always a positive way forward.

Dianna (Walks Between Worlds)
Reading professionally since 1998, Tarot became Dianna's first conscious "tool" for her magickal ways. Being a natural storyteller, she found ease and familiarity in the Tarot's structure, which also lent itself to her mysterious and intuitive nature. Many Reading options are available in person or online. Please contact Kia Ora Lounge or Dianna for details.
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.
