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)!

And since it's December, of course I had to use my Christmas inspired Tarot deck!  

This month's intention is all about pursuing your passions and nurturing your own happiness!

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 ;)

Intention Setting Reading

1st Card - Ace of canes

This ace is illuminating your path with crystal-clear clarity and a handsome dose of bright ideas! Aces symbolize new beginnings, so pay attention for messages from within or signs that may guide you towards your passions or something new. Remember, it's crucial to seize these moments of inspiration and turn them into action, as they have the potential to fade if left unattended. This ace invites you to embrace this new beginning, but it's up to you to take the first steps. Communicate your ideas, as spoken words are powerful and can create momentum. And don't forget to jot down those brilliant "a-ha" moments; writing them down helps anchor them firmly in your mind. Nurture your ideas with positive thoughts, and don't forget to silence that pesky inner critic who tries to hold you back.

2nd Card - ace of good cheer

The imagery on this card brings back memories of joyous gatherings and happy times. What makes you happy? Are you currently pursuing that passion? Here, we have another ace, inviting you to embark on a journey towards fulfilling your heart's true desires. What is it that you yearn for deep down, and what might be holding you back? Instead of analyzing it intellectually, I encourage you to step into the sacred space of your heart and listen closely to its soft whispers. ❀️ 

You can achieve this by finding a quiet moment for yourself, taking a few deep breaths, and connecting with your heart space. Ask your heart about your truest desires and pay attention to what arises... And then, consider taking inspired action towards pursuing those dreams. While aces signify new beginnings, it's important to remember that they require your active participation. Trust your heart's guidance and let it lead you on this beautiful journey of self-discovery and fulfillment.

3rd Card - xvii - the star

If you've been on a journey of healing or going through a challenging phase, take comfort in knowing that the Star card is here to validate your emotions, embrace your courage and illuminate your path. Believe in the possibility of what you desire. Remember the famous words from the Disney movie Pinocchio: "when you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires will come to you." Isn't it wonderful that the Ace of Good Cheer, who encourages you to follow your heart's desires, showed up just before this card?  They marry so beautifully together to form this month's intention.

Often, we find ourselves focusing on the things we don't want in life. The Star is a gentle reminder to shift our focus towards what we truly desire, even if it can be challenging at times. It's like making a wish and envisioning it coming true. Immerse yourself in the feeling of what it would be like if your wish were already here. This is the beautiful art of visualization. By sending out positive thoughts, you'll witness the magic of them materializing just like gifts under the Christmas tree.

Journaling is a powerful tool for self-reflection and growth. Take your time with these prompts, allow your thoughts and feelings to flow, and be open to the insights and clarity that may arise.

  • What inspired idea or passion is calling out to you for a new beginning?
  • How can you take the first steps to turn your inspiration into action?
  • What brilliant "a-ha" moments have you had recently? Write them down to anchor them in your mind.
  • How can you nurture your ideas with positive thoughts?
  • Step into your heart space and listen to its whispers. What does your heart desire?
  • What could be holding you back from following your heart's true desires? How can you overcome those obstacles?
  • Practice the art of visualization. Imagine your wishes coming true and feel the emotions of their fulfillment.  Write down what your life would be like if your wish was already granted.


  • 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.
