Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”Laini Taylor
October energies support sustainability, and finding healing for, and solutions to, our problems.
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that this oracle card from the CELTIC LENORMAND brings us this week. The CELTIC LENORMAND, with its beautiful Pagan and Celtic themes, is written by Chloe McCracken and the artwork is by Will Worthington.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
I know, I know, this card features a snake. But don’t let that freak you out. Look a little closer and you will see that the snake is shedding its skin.
It’s a wonderful week for the return of hope, for beginning new projects, and for any kind of makeover in your personal or professional life. You’ll be ready to leave the old behind, without needing to hang on to it or keep looking back over your shoulder. You can fix your eyes on the horizon and start moving forward with no regrets.
You’ll also see the true colours of people or situations, in ways that will facilitate clear decision-making.
It’s a big energy week, and you may need to retreat from time to time, to allow yourself extra rest and solitude. Integration and healing uses so much energy, so don’t skimp on sleep, and don’t beat yourself up if you find yourself flagging for no apparent reason. You’ll feel more like yourself, and you’ll feel better about yourself as the week progresses.
Once again, intuition will be at the forefront this week. Expect insights and aha moments, and those strange flashes of understanding where you look at something from the recent or distant past and suddenly have a completely different perspective about what happened and why. You may also get very clear guidance and direction from your dreams, Guides or your own Wise Self. Pay attention. Allow yourself to feel encouraged. It’s the kind of week where magic can happen!

Supportive crystals this week
Smoky Quartz keeps you grounded, gifting inner strength and the ability to listen deeply to your own needs. Orange Calcite connects you to creativity, inspiration and your heart’s desires and helps you to develop confidence in yourself and your dreams. Use it to help you see your first steps forward. Amethyst (pictured) helps you tune in to spiritual guidance and also helps you to think deeply about your problems in ways that allow solutions to be found. Tiger Eye will help you focus, make big decisions and act with integrity and courage.
Helpful Essential Oils
Coriander essential oil is a good choice for your diffuser this week. It helps you to know yourself, and to reconnect with your truth. To make an effective blend to boost confidence and optimism add Bergamot, Geranium and Cinnamon Bark in a ration of 4:3:2:1.
Cinnamon also gives that lovely spicy feel to a blend, helping put you in the holiday mood.
This week I’m working on some lovely surprises for my membership, as well as giving the garden a little love and care after all of the rain we have received.
I’m also getting crafty with a painting project, and leaving myself plenty of time for journalling, because it’s that kind of a week.
I might even try out a few new Christmas cookie recipes!
Hugs and creative happiness, Nicole xx
