“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.”Melody Beattie
This Quarter I am using The Light Seer’s Tarot by Chris-Anne for my weekly oracle readings.
Our card to guide us for the week ahead is ACE OF SWORDS. It’s a week of unavoidable realisations – of receiving inspired awareness, insights and sudden breakthroughs. It’s a week for getting to a place of understanding about crucial things within our current lives that will shape our future.
ACE OF SWORDS brings energies for getting clear about how you feel, about what you want and don’t want. That kind of energy brings clarity. The kind of clarity that precedes action. The kind of clarity that requires courage.
Clarity is just beneath the surface of our muddled mind. All we need to do is slow down, breathe deeply, relax ourselves and then dive deeper.
Which takes courage.
It takes courage to stop telling yourself the comforting stories and admit to yourself the truth of how you really feel.
It takes courage to act upon your inner knowing. To leave a broken dream behind, or to chase a new one.
You had that strength as a child. As a tiny, vulnerable and totally dependent being you could feel into yourself and express your hunger, your rage, your wonder and your love. You would give your full focus to what interested you, and be captivated by your own yearnings.
Now you are grown.
You still have your inner child to guide you, that straight-shooting, loving and honest part of yourself that already knows how you feel and what you want. They’ve always known.
Reach into yourself and you will know too. It’s time.
Clarity means that you can let go of all of the clutter (physical, emotional, mental) that you have created, to medicate yourself into feeling better. Clarity means that you can simplify, and follow that simpler path with a light heart.
Simple, of course, does not necessarily mean easier. But we can do hard things, when the road leads to a destination chosen by our heart.
Once you have your clarity, be bold. Take action!
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: Find a little time this week to sit with yourself, your cards, and your journal. Ask yourself what you most need to know. Ask yourself the questions that are already bubbling beneath your skin. The courage is already within you.

This week I’m easing back into work a couple of days a week, while paying attention to my doctor’s orders.
I’m expecting a week of morning meetings with my team, and afternoon naps. Lots of naps. One thing about having a heart that isn’t pumping properly? It really does force me to slow down.
It’s been incredibly wet here at the treehouse, with heavy rain for days. Here on the east coast of Australia, we’ve had a rain depression sitting in the sky above us for over a week, bringing massive downpours, and there is flooding everywhere. Our yard is awash, but no major water inside the house, thank goodness – just some non-functional power outlets and lights and occasional loss of power and internet.
The side yard outside my writing room has become a waterfall, with pools of stagnant water closer to the house. The water dragons are loving it, and we have lizards of every size frolicking in their new adventure park. I’m glad someone is enjoying this weather. We’re all a bit over it, to be honest. But at least we are safe and dry. So many people have experienced far worse than us.
I’m sending love to you, and my hope that you really do pay attention this week – because BIG things are happening, and you don’t want to miss that important guidance.
Hugs, damp doggies, and froggy orchestras, Nicole xx
