Rise Up, Stand Up For Yourself – Monday Oracle 18 September 2023


Sometimes the hardest part of the journey is believing you’re worth the trip.
— Glenn Beck

Your self-worth grows when you fight for something you love.
— Maxime Lagacé


Hello, Lovelies!

This Quarter I am using The Sacred Forest Oracle by Denise Linn, with artwork by Scott Breidenthal, for my weekly oracle readings.

Our card to guide us for the week ahead is 21. Guardians of the Land – PROTECTION. 

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.

September is a month to find your flow, to know yourself better, and to connect or reconnect with your intuition, creativity and important relationships (including projects or your calling). It’s a big month of letting go and going deeper – with many things.


21. Guardians of the Land – PROTECTION. 

This week brings beautiful energy, the transformational energy of you understanding your own worth. This energy supports you in defending your rights, and encourages you to stand up for yourself and claim better for yourself. It’s a week where dramatic changes can occur, magical and good ideas can fall down around you like rain, the solution can be found, and where life slams doors closed while throwing open others. It’s a week for justice, action and immediate change. It’s a week for crossing the bridge that leads to a different life for yourself.

If necessary bring in an advocate to work on your behalf; it might be a doctor, it might be a lawyer, it might be a business advisor. Whatever you do, find people who are going to bring wisdom, insight and experience to your problems so that they help you to transform past the areas where you’re currently (or endlessly) stuck. Think coaches, teachers and mentors as well.

This week you may well have a clarifying moment where you think ‘F*ck it, I can’t be in this space anymore’ or ‘I can’t be unwell anymore’ or I can’t be overweight anymore’ or ‘I can’t let my finances be  a mess anymore’ or ‘I can’t let my business be a mess anymore’ but I can take action and if I don’t know how I’m gonna take action then I’m going to get help to take action.

Expect to feel impassioned and riled up and a little bit crazy and a whole lot determined this week. And let those feelings guide you to transform, transform, transform. Not little bit by little bit but in grand and dramatic ways!

And if you’ve been broken by life and find yourself down on your knees? If life has had you blocked and stuck and stymied? Expect that this week you’ll find the strength to haul yourself back up and try one more glorious time.

My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: 

Transformation requires action but it also requires rest! It’s time to work out how to incorporate rest into your every day, rest into your week or your weekend or your month. It’s time to think about planning holidays. Can you find a work/life rhythm that works for you? Can you start work earlier and finish earlier, or give yourself a later start one day a week? Can you clear one day on your weekend to simply relax and have time for yourself? Can you put the kids in care one afternoon a week to create a window of time just for you?

The energies of this week help you to become mindful about creating sustainability in your life so that you don’t burn out.

Well, I finally made it. I’m on retreat. Just me, two laptops, a bajillion notebooks and a serious amount of blutack, index cards, post-it notes and pens.

It feels so lush, to have this time to simply sit with my story and the funny strange world I have created, and to deepen the conversations between me and my characters. I wake up thinking about writing. I go to bed thinking about writing.

My hotel room is grand, not in a fancy way, but in a totally delights me kind of way – it’s a quiet corner room on the top floor of an inner city hotel that affords me views of the city and then all the way to a band of silver-blue sea on the far horizon. Yesterday I felt so excited and happy – like I was a princess in a castle in the middle of Adventureland. I kept thinking to myself, ‘What if I could do this ALL THE TIME?’

I’d love to keep chatting with you, but I am called to get back to it. I don’t want to spend a minute longer away from my characters than I have to right now. I hope you understand.

Love, tears, howls of laughter, deep silences, and odd moments where I want to pull my shirt over my face and run around with my fingers in the air in a moment of daft celebration of just how good a certain plot point feels, Nicole xx

PS – the pic below was day one, hour one of my journey. Certain critical bits covered with pink hearts because I am very protective of this book baby!

Hi! I'm Nicole Cody. I am a writer, psychic, metaphysical teacher and organic farmer. I love to read, cook, walk on the beach, dance in the rain and grow things. Sometimes, to entertain my cows, I dance in my gumboots. Gumboot dancing is very under-rated.

    1. Thanks, Joanne. I don’t like arguments or confrontations but I have become better at making space for myself and my needs, and that was not as scary as I thought it would.be. I hope you can find plenty of space for yourself and your needs and desires too. Much love xx
