Your Heart As A Compass – Monday Oracle 13 March 2023


Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.
― Roy T. Bennett



Hello, Lovelies!

This Quarter I am using Queen Of The Moon Oracle by Stacey Demarco for my weekly oracle readings.

Our card to guide us for the week ahead is 10. DISCERNMENT. 


10. DISCERNMENT. 2023 is a year for change, creating solid foundations, and for spiritual journeying. It’s a year for personal growth, and for clarifying who you are, what you want, and why you are here.

Our heads so often get stuck in a rut – guiding us to do the same thing over and over, even when that no longer makes us happy. Worse, sometimes our heads convince us to do things we know will make us unhappy so that we can conform, or make others happy, or live up to some relentless idea of who we should be. 

This week reminds us that when we listen to our hearts over our minds, and do what we love or are drawn to – whether that is a calling, a hobby or something we fit into our downtime, like music or gardening or rollerball derby or baking bread – our life becomes richer and more satisfying. We can use these experiences that enrich us to top up the well of love inside us from which we give to others, and that also feeds our creative acts. This prevents us from burning out, running dry or moving into overwhelm and resentment. 

This week give thought to the relationships, activities and places that nourish and nurture you. Think about how you can incorporate these into your life on a regular basis. This kind of self-care can be life-changing as it moves you back into energetic flow and aligns you with what matters most to you. This week tune in to your heart’s yearnings, and make room for them in your life. Time marches on, and you will never have this day again. Every day you do not do the things in your heart is a day lost to you, and we are never promised tomorrow.

When we begin to live from a place of honouring our own needs, and become happier as a result of better boundaries, self-care and engaging in activities that nourish us we become magnetic to better opportunities, love, synchronicity and magic. All because we moved into flow…..

My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: 

It’s not enough to listen to your heart this week – you need to act on the wisdoms it shares with you. It’s a beautiful week for any kind of creative venture so bake, paint, craft, play, make, learn, write, and create. Or go one further and sign up to a creative class or carve out some dedicated time and space for your art. Make a deliberate effort to nurture your heart space in the coming days. Do things that fill you up. Make time for yourself and your dreams, and for doing what you love. This is especially important if your life is stressful and demanding. And remember that what we focus on, multiplies. So focus on what makes you happy and what helps you to feel good about your life. Take your focus away from your problems and look to solutions or something that can bring an energy of gratitude to your life.

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

We got to the beach at dawn one morning early last week and were rewarded with the sight of a pod of dolphins surfing and playing in the waves. I carried the joy of that moment in my heart all week.

Last week was one of those weeks. I had intended it to be client-free, and I had been hoping for plenty of quiet writing time and catch-up-on-rest time, but of course it didn’t work out like that. Instead I had family things, and community emergencies, and house things, and some of my own health issues (plus insomnia) which crowded out that planned quiet. 

It was a stressful and exhausting week over all, but the 2024 Planner outline is written (such a major job – the easy part comes next with collating all my information and writing the final copy) AND I took the entire weekend off to nap, write my own stories, and refill my tank before another busy week this week. Yes, I got some sleep. Doesn’t everything look better after sleep!

Most exciting of all? Our barbeque on the deck has finally been installed, and is all ready to go. So, my plans for the week ahead include a LOT of grilling. Hooray. 🎉😊💖

I’ll be listening to the wisdom of my own heart this week. I know it has a lot to say, and I’m already pretty sure about where it wants to guide me.

Wishing you a week of connection, restoration, inspiration and direction, Nicole xx

  1. Nicole, It is wonderful to witness you “living” your life!! Thank you for sharing SO so much of your ups and downs and joys and pains!!! For some reason it is reassuring and affirming! So much so I regularly send copies to friends who are going through similar things or need your encouraging words!!
    It is Amazing how words, not just people, can be encouraging!
    I never even thought of the point that, “we were never promised tomorrow.”!! My perspective is shifted, Again!!
    And there are many more things you say that I am SO thankful for! (Even when you day that you cannot say much! It gives me permission to be gentle with myself too!)
    Thank you Nicole!!

    PS. I am crossing my fingers that next year’s journal will have some references or even just a tiny picture of reminder of the Moon Phases. (Mind you I just realized that the days will probably very according to what part of the world we are.) Huh! I guess maybe just a link or reminder to also work with the moon if it affects that week?
    Oh, well, it was just a thought as the card you pulled today was a perfect reminder as I that Gibus moon is SO so large right now and was beautiful last Nighy! It made me wonder what Energies I needed to release as I feel asleep.

    1. Joie – thank you for the kind words, and also for your suggestions for our Planner, which is timely as we finalise next year’s design. These are great ideas. Much love, Nicole xx
