Passion is a feeling that tells you: this is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I’m going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.
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 SUMMER – Bask In Joy and Light.
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.
June heralds a return to hope and heart, where we can find direction, optimism, fun and friendship. We are empowered to own our individuality and to find joy in self-expression.
SUMMER – Bask In Joy and Light invites you to get busy on personal projects this week. It’s a week for making commitments to yourself and your dreams, for working towards goals that are important to you, and for some of you – preparing to share your talents and gifts with the world.
Make sure to spend some time on sweet things this week – delicious moments of pleasure, or rest, or connection, or entertainment, or doing something you love.
It’s also a week for honestly evaluating how you spend your time.
The energy of this week supports you asking yourself: Is this the life I want for myself? Is this the work I want? Is there room in my life for living and doing what I love to do? How do I want to spend my time? What matters to me?
Find some time for yourself this week, and ask yourself those questions. And if you’re not happy with the answers begin to make some changes. Look to simplify your life, to find some time for the things that matter, and for the underestimated joy of just having spare time for living.
But above all, make time for actually LIVING!
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead:
Right now, if you’re feeling a little lost, it’s perfectly okay to ask for a sign or some kind of answer that gives you clarity – or at least a place to start. Then trust that your Soul and the Universe will use everything at their disposal to get that message to you.
You’ll know what it is for you. Your soul will make the message or the messenger look brighter, shinier, more obvious – this thing, whatever it is, will just stand out more. It will be meaningful for YOU.
It might be a sign on the back of a bus, a song on the radio, an article in the newspaper, a recurring image or idea. Don’t worry about what it could be – just trust that this thing will make itself known to 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 it’s 3 weeks since the trees fell on our shed and it is STILL unbreachable. It looks like this will be a complex operation to free Ben’s ute and dismantle the mangled building safely. Sigh. But we still have my little car, so we are mobile and the dogs can still enjoy a morning car ride to the beach or the post office or the grocery store. Morning car rides are an essential part of a happy dog day.
I’m currently playing around with working hours and morning schedules for myself. Morning is always my best time, cognitively and energy-wise. So, how am I to make the most of these precious hours? This week I am going to experiment with putting morning yoga and exercise later in the day, so that I can use those precious first hours to write and create. I’m also putting myself to bed earlier and earlier. It seems to be what my body needs, so I am going with that.
I’m in our bedroom early, but I’ll shower and meditate, and then hop into bed and read for a while, or listen to an audiobook. That’s something I look forward to every day. Dinner has crept forward so that we are often eating around 4pm (except Fridays – which is always our Happy Hour and Finger Food Fiesta!) to have enough hours of digestion before I end up horizontal. My body is liking that too. All I want to do is keep listening to it, and making it happy. So, that’s my plan.
I’m sending you all lots of love, and my intentions that you find something to fill a little time this week that is deeply enjoyable for you. Life is meant to be lived, and lived well. To merely exist is never enough, no matter what your circumstances may be.

PS the pic below is of some beautiful old Banksia trees in the dunes behind the ocean. I walk past them regularly on one of my beachside strolls. I love the blue of the sky and the lacework of their leaves.
