Beautiful are those whose brokenness gives birth to transformation and wisdom.

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 QUEEN OF PENTACLES. It’s a week for emotional healing, for self-care, creative empowerment and living sustainably.
This week QUEEN OF PENTACLES supports you to make space for what makes you happy. Your heart is yearning to be connected to people, places and activities that are richly satisfying and that hold meaning for you.
It’s also a week for getting glimmers (or even the complete picture) of what your next creative project can be.
This is not about doing things for show, or for success or acknowledgement, for prizes or for adoration. It’s not about getting likes or followers or ‘increasing your reach’.
Instead, the QUEEN OF PENTACLES reminds you that life is short and precious. Everything fades. Everything ends. Sometimes in an instant. In the meantime? We need less rush, and more slow. Less input and more quiet. More mindfulness and less anxiety. Happiness comes from the things that are deeply personal, and which often remain private.
The rewards for following your heart are many, but they may not be what you expect. Instead of fortune and fame, you may find self-worth, a lifelong passion, an inner steadiness and a stronger sense of identify. You might find your tribe, or your significant other. You might find yourself.
Trust this week. Stay curious. Explore possibilities and then take small concrete steps towards this future version of you.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: Passion projects are often born from small ideas, or a bright spark of curiosity that seemingly makes no sense. Once you start something, who knows where it might lead. Instead of putting yourself under pressure to have it all figured out, allow yourself the blessing of making a start without knowing what the possible outcome might be. None of your efforts will be wasted. Everything you do can have meaning, and be clarifying for you.
Stuck with creating a satisfying life for yourself or understanding your best direction forward? Maybe you need a session with me to bring some extra clarity and direction. Details here

Here at the Treehouse we’re still sorting through boxes and unpacking, but it’s getting down to that granular space now, of making decisions about which things to keep out of the items we have mostly already gone through once.
I’m working at a slower pace, which leaves more room for writing, creating and general living. Heart guided satisfaction? You bet.
Oh, that feels goooooood.
There is finally a hint of chill in the morning air, and I added an extra blanket to the bed last night. This cooler weather has also inspired me to get back in the kitchen to try out some new recipes.
I fear my sweet peas will not survive being as waterlogged as they are. It has been so very wet, and we have more rain forecast for the week ahead. Still, my tomatoes are thriving, and so is my lemon tree, my avocado, and my lemongrass.
I’ve reached the final stretch of the novel I’m working on, although I am still not sure how it ends. That’s not a problem though. Every time I sit down the words pour out of me, and I am happy to let that be the process for this story. My memoir sits on the back burner, and I have a plan for that too, but some of that actually involves working with my therapist to get clear on certain things, rather than it being an issue of style or technique. Anyway, all that matters is that I am writing and that, bit by bit, I am getting closer to done.
I’m thinking more about passion projects of my own for the rest of the year. Music and crafty stuff come to mind. I trust that it will get clearer as the days unfold. It’s exciting, leaving space for possibility.
Wishing you a week of clarity and connection too! Much love, Nicole xx
