“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On!’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
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 7 OF PENTACLES. You’re reminded that it’s time to build on what you have already decided or created for yourself this year, aided by a deep knowing and intuition. What’s needed now is intention, persistence and consistency.
7 OF PENTACLES has a strong message for you: study what it is you want to do with your life, be strategic in creating a plan, hold true to your vision, and remember to have patience.
Very often, the thing you want can take time. That’s okay. The most important thing is to think carefully, and create a strong plan, and then patiently work that plan. Patience brings rewards. So be strategic and don’t give up.
There can be great power in going slowly and being consistent and intentional in your actions. Regular small steps and patience can change your life, so don’t worry about the speed of your progress, just be committed to your plan and then trust in positive outcomes.
This week, working slowly and consistently, and with good planning, you’ll get much more achieved than you ever thought possible. Being slow, strategic and methodic will create real and tangible progress.
Your intuition will be on high alert too, so trust your own gut instincts over experts and gurus.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead:
This week 7 of Pentacles has a special message for those who are ready. Change your story, even if it’s just the one you are telling yourself in your head, and it will change your life. Are you ready to step into a bigger, wiser and more open version of yourself? Start by changing your words and your thoughts. Make room for possibility. You can choose to change. You can choose to become something new.

Well, that nurse was right. I was thoroughly wiped out by my recent health tests, but I am so glad to have this first round completed (as of 5.36am today!).
This week we’re finally getting our art up on the walls here at the Treehouse, or the beginnings of that anyway. Then our next project is gigantic bookshelves for our library room/bar. It will be so good to have more of the things we love around us again, after having been packed away so long.
I’m planning on lots of catch-up rest too, as well as writing time, and content creation time. But this week rest and recovery, and looking after myself and my family is my top priority.
Our lemon tree is groaning with fruit, so I might do something with those too. I’m thinking preserved lemons, lemon butter (Ben’s favourite), lemon bliss balls with my allowable ingredients (yep, still on a very limited diet) and a zesty chicken and lemon soup. If you have any fab lemon recipes please feel free to share. I love trying new recipes.
Wherever you find yourself this week, remember that all you ever need are small steps, tiny changes and a dash of consistency and EVERYTHING can begin to move in a better direction for you.
Love, lemony lusciousness, and the joy of sunshine, Nicole xx
