Welcome to my monthly blog post where I create a simple intention based on a monthly card reading!  If this intention resonates with you, feel free to use it as a focus for this month (or however long feels right for you)!  

If you're feeling called to speak your truth about something, now is the time to muster up the courage to do so!  Don't allow fear of being judged or not accepted so you can be your authentic self and shine brightly.  

Read below for the full card reading and take what feels good for you and leave the rest.  Messages are meant to find you in the most peculiar ways when you're willing to notice and listen ;)

Some things to keep in mind when using an intention:

  • Write it down and put it where you can see it regularly (bathroom mirror, desk, beside table, wallet, etc).
  • Say it several times a day clearly affirming it - you can stand in a power pose (like running across the finish line), hands on hips (like Wonder Woman), placing your hands on your heart, or even doing a little dance.  Whatever makes you feel like this intention is possible when you say it, then do that!
  • Visualize for just a few minutes each day your intention as if it has already come true.
  • Practice your favourite Yoga Nidra meditation that allows you to state your intention during the practice.  When the mind and body are relaxed, your mind is much more susceptible to suggestions, so this can help make this intention become true for you even quicker than by doing it on a conscious level alone.

Intention Setting Reading

1st Card - TRUTH BE TOLD (14)

This card is inviting you to speak your truth.  Are you hiding behind a mask because you're afraid to communicate in an honest and compassionate way?  Sometimes you can wear a mask because you may live and act in a way that you think other's want you to be and not in a way that is authentic to your true nature.  You may also hide behind a mask because you may hold beliefs about yourself that are untrue, but you believe them to be true.  How can you peel back the layers that keep you from being your true self (which is pure love and joy).  How can you communicate this is in an authentic way?  Maybe there is something that you've been wanting to do, but you're too afraid to make that known to others?  If that is the case, now is the time to speak this truth and take a step towards that desire! 


The Queen of Swords is here to validate speaking your truth.  She is a mighty, courageous and wise Queen who is known for speaking the truth!!  I'm telling you, I can't make this stuff up - these cards have a way of validating truths and hidden beliefs and this is no exception!   The Queen of Swords has a way of seeing things from a higher perspective because she's been through a lot and she is wise and experienced.  Because of this though, she may come across as cold or sharp tongued.  So, with this card in the mix, while it's important to speak your truth in an honest way, do it in a way that is compassionate and not hurtful to others.  Some may think that in order to be "real" and authentic, it has to be done in an aggressive way, but that's just not the case.  Be yourself, and speak what is important to you, but bring compassion into the conversation and see how beautifully it gets received.   You may also be afraid to speak this truth, but take courage from this Queen as she's here to support you!  She knows you are fierce and flawless!  Love and accept who you are - in this vibration, it will be effortless to express your vision and articulate your thoughts.  


The Three of Pentacles is a card of co-operation and synergy!  It's a time for starting a new project in communion with others who share your passion.  If you're wanting to start something new, perhaps joining a group of the same interest is calling you now.  If you're currently working in a group, maybe now is the time to speak up and share your ideas in a way that is helpful and positive.  Everyone works together in partnership and harmony with the Three of Pentacles, so this may be something that is missing in your world right now.  This could even pertain to family dynamics.  Maybe you can plan something fun with your family or group of friends where everyone shares their ideas of what to do (including you). Whatever it may be, you're being called to work as a team at this time which may involve something you are wanting to do, but haven't spoke up about just yet.....

4th Card - 10 OF CUPS

I love this card!  It speaks of peace, harmony and joy!  This card is a reminder to enjoy the present moment and to count your blessings!  Really take note of the beauty in every single moment.  Too often you may miss perfect opportunities for joy and happiness because you're regretting something from the past or worrying about the future. Maybe you're missing out because you're worried about speaking what it is that you are wanting to do or wanting to say?  Even though we may worry about things, don't allow these thoughts to occupy your mind.  Don't waste these moments where you can experience pure joy and bliss (especially when you're with those you love)!!  If you don't pay attention to a rainbow, you'll complete miss it.  This is inviting you to stop and look at the rainbow and to give thanks for the beauty that the world around you brings!

questions you can contemplate: 🤔 

  • What truth are you not speaking?  
  • How can you honestly articulate your thoughts and express your vision?
  • What new project or activity have you been thinking about starting lately? 
  • Write down a list of 10 things you are grateful for - or keep going if there are more than 10 things ;)
