Wow, it’s 11:11! Not only is November (11th month) the 11th an powerful day vibrationally, this is also an 11 YEAR (2+0+1+8=11), making today an especially potent day for manifesting and furthering your personal goals. Make a wish! <3<3<3<3
It’s been a while since I shared a follow-through reading, and today felt like the perfect time to dive back in! For today’s reading, drawn from Oracle of the Mermaids, Angel Tarot Cards, and Tarot of Mermaids, I intended to receive the most relevant message for everyone who sees this to make use of this important energetic gateway <3<3<3<3
To begin, let’s look at the Shadow Cards, the cards at the bottom of the deck after shuffling — these indicate the energy that brings you to the reading:
Shadow Cards: 34. Yemaya reversed + 9 of Water + 2 of Wands
Yes, an important realization recently has been that you’re ready to “break away from tradition.” You’ve allowed yourself to realize that things don’t have to be the same for you as they are for other people, as they were for your parents especially — this is a new day and age, and things need to change. Difference is fine, it’s when comparison sneaks in that problems arise! Truly, you know what you want for yourself, and it’s okay if that doesn’t match up with what other people think would be best for you. You are exactly where you need to be in the process of creating your glowing future — everything is changing societally, including definitions of what it means to be a “success,” and all that matters right now is that you know you are needed here, now, and as you are <3<3<3
Oracle Cards: 5. Song of the Siren + 1 – The Magician
Indeed, you are ready to sing your heart’s song!! Your struggles have empowered you and find you so deeply connected with your own spirit — as a result, your innate gifts are bubbling up and are now ready to be shared. This self-expression will not only feel deeply healing for you and your soul, it will also facilitate healing in others — you have such important perspective on all that you’ve come through, and you are now in a position to make use of your emotional toolbox in a very real, very tangible, very creative/artistic way. you’re really making it through the midpoint now, and the road ahead is bright — things are different here in that now you actually have what you need, and you are thrilled to be able to start making further use of what you’ve gathered <3<3
Where to Focus: Page of Swords
Over the past month or so, almost every reading, client and personal, contained the Page of Swords reversed, indicating that we were only hesitating about moving forward because we sensed the time wasn’t right. Well, the time has come, and it’s time to get curious! Keep learning, keep growing, keep exploring all the new lines of thought you’ve been uncovering and being inspired by <3<3 Winter is knocking and with it comes the natural time to go within, to embrace the Inner World, and to keep it fun and sparkling with fresh mental pursuits and stimulations. You’re getting excited just reading this as you know exactly what you’ve picked up recently that you can;t wait to dive deeper into — you sense that this will become a much larger pinpoint in the overall picture <3<3<3
What to Release: King of Pentacles
Truly, it’s time to release outdated ideas of what it means to be “stable,” to be secure, and as mentioned above, to be a “success.” Clutching rigidly to concepts that aren’t even relevant to our current reality only sets us back further — it’s time to carve out your own definitions, to tell yourself what makes you feel like you are whole and healthy and provided for and let that be enough. Easier said than done when well-meaning people who have already established themselves offer advice from that place of stability, as it can feel cruel to feel so unseen in your pit of much-less-than. These are the moments to count your blessings and keep dreaming — not in line with what anyone tells you you deserve or can do, but in line with what you actually want, with what you know you can do, from day to day, moment to moment, and allow yourself to start from there <3<3<3 No should’ves, would’ves, could’ves — remember: you are exactly where you need to be!
Energy to Increase: King of Wands
I had to laugh seeing this one after the King of Pents as the release card — yes, this is a time to listen to your passion, because it’s on fire! You’re fully feeling the “free spirit” thing, excited to continue the path the philosophies you’ve been studying and integrating have found you on. This is such a cool creative moment where you’re feeling led by your Higher Self, aware that everything happening is part of something much larger — you are fully in control of your creative direction at the moment, and your energy levels are rising up to meet your ambitions. Keep getting excited and go go go! Allow yourself to break free from what’s been done before, slam the door on the past, and push forward — there is so much more cool excitement and deeper spiritual revelations to be had <3<3<3
Best Advice: Ace of Wands
Yes, take up your “wand!” You are creating magic in you life, as a direct result of commiting to going with the flow. you came reeeally close to a total burnout moment, but you took control, you delegated responsibility, and now here you are — free to really run with a particular creative endeavour that you are so, so ready to keep going with <3<3<3 I love how the mermaid is literally “tits up” — it’s time to put yourself out there, share what inspires you so! It will involve making yourself a bit vulnerable, sure, but the connections that will result are so, so worth the effort it takes to strike the match <3<3<3
Now for the Higher Self Cards, the cards at the top of the deck after shuffling, which represent a message of hope moving forward <3<3<3
Higher Self Cards: 23. Dreams + 10 – The Wheel + 6 of Swords
Keep dreaming <3<3<3 The seasons are not the only thing changing — look back over the past year! You are a much different person now, much stronger, and so, so ready for the further incubation that the coming Winter months have to offer. See this period as a time for seeking warmth, for surrounding yourself with comfort and soul-fuel, and this is the final phase of healing necessary for the exciting lurch forward that 2019 will bring. Keep charging, keep absorbing, hold yourself tight — a new dawn is coming and while it’s still a ways off, for you the healing has already begun — You Are Exactly Where You Need To Be <3<3<3<3
