Welcome to my monthly blog post where I create a simple intention inspired by a monthly card reading! Feel free to embrace this intention as your guiding light for the upcoming month (or for as long as it speaks to you)!

This month's intention is all about having the freedom to truly express yourself!    

Unleash your true, fabulous self and let your spirit soar high!  It's time to get rid of outdated rules and embrace the joy of being your authentic self. Take a step back and evaluate your commitments, creating more time for self-care and practices that bring you joy. Remember, you don't have to be a superhero.  

Step out of the shadows and let your light shine brightly. Follow your passions with enthusiasm and embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal fulfillment.  Find a balance between responsibilities and self-care, and let your light inspire others.  Embrace the Empress within you, who teaches us to find contentment and recognize our own worthiness. Release any obstacles and welcome limitless possibilities!

Explore the detailed card reading below and embrace whatever resonates with you, while letting go of anything that doesn't. Remember, powerful messages have a way of finding you when you open your heart and pay attention ;)

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 - FREEDOM

It's time to unleash your true, fabulous self and let your spirit soar high! Step into the realm of limitless possibilities and find those wings that will take you to new heights. And guess what? As you spread your wings, you'll inspire others to do the same!

It's time to discard those outdated rules that don't align with your true self, and embrace the joy of being your authentic self. 

In what areas of your life are you holding back or stifling your true self? Sometimes we unintentionally hide parts of who we are to fit into societal expectations or to please others. Reflect on any areas where you feel like you're not fully expressing your authentic self.  

2nd Card - two of pentacles

Are you finding yourself juggling too many responsibilities at once? It's important to take a step back and evaluate everything on your plate. While you may be incredibly skilled at handling it all, remember that you don't have to be a superhero. Inspired by the concept of Freedom, consider how you can create more time for self-care. 

This may be a time where you feel pulled in various directions. Take the opportunity to prioritize your commitments and communicate them effectively. Really reflect on what you're saying yes to and what you're saying no to – it's all about finding balance.

3rd Card - queen of wands

Oh my gosh, if you've read these readings in the past, you know how much I LOVE the Queen of Wands!!  This lovely archetype is truly magnetic, embodying qualities such as charisma, warmth, and confidence. She has a way of making those around her feel so loved and inspired. 

Have you ever found yourself holding back or dimming your own light for the sake of others? It's not uncommon. But now, my dear friend, is the perfect moment to gather your courage and fully embrace the remarkable, beautiful person you truly are. It's time to step out of the shadows and let your authentic self shine brightly.

The Queen of Wands also encourages you to follow your passions with genuine enthusiasm and joy. There's no better time than now to pursue what truly excites you and embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal fulfillment.

So, seize this opportunity, enjoy the process, and uncover the unique gifts and talents that make you the remarkable person you are. It's time to let your light shine and inspire others around you!

4th Card - five of wands

This card is indicating that you might be going through some inner challenges right now. The presence of the Two of Pentacles suggests that it's a reminder for you to find a balance between your commitments, responsibilities and self-care activities that bring happiness into your life. Remember, life doesn't have to be all work and no play. The good news is that these internal conflicts are manageable and can be overcome by taking some time to reflect and prioritize.

jumper card - III - the empress

So....we have a jumper in this reading.....a jumper is a card that decides to jump out of the deck while shuffling.  It's like it wants to make a grand entrance and exclaim "Hey, don't forget about me! I've got something important to say!"  And this card ties in beautifully to this reading, it's no wonder the Empress wanted to make her appearance....

Welcome to the realm of the Empress.  She embodies compassion and care. The Empress showers us with love and tender affection. Her relationships are rooted in deep stability and mutual fulfillment. Through her nurturing spirit, she shows us the beauty of fully embracing and savouring all that life has to offer. She teaches us that true contentment isn't about abundance alone, the joy that comes from recognizing and appreciating the abundance already present in your life. There's no need to strive for perfection or worry about what you lack. 

And above all else, she invites you to recognize that you are already enough, just as you are!  There is nothing you have to do or change to be more worthy in this moment. She is also the centre of creation!  Embrace the power within you to create and nurture anything your heart desires. It's time to release any obstacles holding you back and welcome the limitless possibilities ahead.
