If you want to live an authentic, meaningful life, you need to master the art of disappointing and upsetting others, hurting feelings, and living with the reality that some people just won’t like you. It may not be easy, but it’s essential if you want your life to reflect your deepest desires, values, and needs.
This Quarter I am using Angels and Ancestors Oracle Cards by Kyle Gray, with artwork by Lily Moses, for my weekly oracle readings.
Our card to guide us for the week ahead is STAG – Trust and Thrive.
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.
STAG – Trust and Thrive.
April is an incredible month of astrological phenomena that will fire up your intuitive and psychic abilities and help you to clearly connect into your own inner knowing. This week you need to use that inner knowing to create more space and safety in your life by establishing and maintaining strong boundaries.
It’s time for some serious heart management this week. You’re the keeper of your heart, and you get to decide whether to open or close the gates of your heart.
For some of you that will mean setting clear boundaries and being able to say NO, to people, events and opportunities. Or even to yourself. Tune in and work out how you feel. In fact, you probably already know but might not have been brave enough to honestly claim those feelings. Know that it’s okay if you need to turn down an invitation, decline to participate in something that goes against your values, rescind an offer, put limits on a relationship or situation, or let everyone else go and have fun while you stay home. Where might you need to put some walls up, lock the door, or set security at the entrance and restrict who gets in? It might even be time to say goodbye to someone or something. Pull back from whatever doesn’t sit comfortably with you.
For some of you it will be time to throw the doors to your heart wide open and say YES, where your heart shows you that it’s time to take a chance on emotional connection – where it feels right and it aligns well. Of course you need discernment – hearts are tender and precious things – but goodness, this is the week for opening the doors to that heart of yours. Dive right into socialising or projects and places that light you up. Follow your Bliss!
It’s a beautiful week for connecting deeply with the people, places and events that enrich you and give you joy or comfort, but you need to decide what you most need – don’t let others dictate to you what they think might make you happy.
Be open to opportunity and possibility, but to honour your limits too.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead:
Some questions to ask yourself:
- Where do you need to build new boundaries?
- Where do you need maintain boundaries, or make existing ones more defined and stronger?
- How can you find more time just for you?
- What do you need to start doing differently, in order to make your life work better?
This is the only precious life you get – this one will never come again. And your wellbeing is tied to boundaries as much as it is also tied to living with an open heart.

It’s been blowing a gale here at the Treehouse the past few days. The past few nights it’s been literally howling, and I’m forever grateful I am on land, and not on a ship right now.
We’re safe, but we’ve had huge pot-plants blown over, branches down, and even with the windows open only a crack I’ve had household items fly off benches and tables in quite dramatic ways.
The dogs have been happy to curl up under our desks, or snuggle right on top of our feet – just to be safe. They are not big fans of these high winds.
I got off to a lumpy start on my new Lyme drug regime, and the past few days have been pretty miserable but I’m hopeful that things will settle down as we go along. That’s what I keep telling myself anyway. It’s always better to be optimistic, even when current circumstances seem otherwise, but I have also walked this road before, so if it’s brutal from now til the end of this road I’m ready for that too.
This week I’m thinking soup. Comfort bowls of warm food that I can eat by the spoonful sounds heavenly.
Sending you love, strong boundaries and big hugs, Nicole xx
