I feel such a beautiful energy today and I hope that somehow I can share it in this post with you.

The meditation today is short but very uplifting and power-filled!

A most interesting tarot reading for this week. Sometimes it seems like I see some of the same cards over and over, but I trust the process. I randomly pull them, so there is no manipulation on my part. The Universe brings the message we need to hear.

I feel that the Seven of Pentacles applies to all of us who write our stories, or any other creative endeavors. It shows you understand the value of putting in time and energy now for longer-term rewards and have a strong desire to invest in sustainable results. You are not looking for quick wins (but wouldn’t we all love a quick win?). You also want to make sure you are putting your attention on the right areas instead of wasting time and effort on tasks that will not deliver any value. Sometimes we need to step back from day-to-day operations and take a look at the bigger picture. If you have been working hard or putting extra effort into something challenging and important for the last few months, the endeavor or project is near its culmination. Rest assured, your hard work will pay off. You are likely to see financial or other tangible rewards for all of your hard work.

The Page of Pentacles brings a message of new beginnings, as does the Ace. When the Page of Pentacles appears in a Tarot reading, you are tapping into your ability to manifest a personal goal or dream, or the start of a new educational experience. You are excited about the possibilities and potential of what you put your mind to, knowing you can create whatever you want with focused intention and action. This Page does not specify the fulfillment of dreams as much as the initial motivation and energy to begin the process of turning those dreams into reality.

The Ace of Swords seems to show up often for us. It marks a wave of new energy from the intellectual realms. You may be on the verge of a significant breakthrough or a new way of thinking that allows you to view the world with clear eyes. Or, you may have a sudden realization or conscious understanding about an issue that has been troubling you and can finally see the path ahead of you. Meditate regularly to clear away the mental chatter and make the most of this intellectual potential.

My overall take on this reading is that while we may be nearing the end of one project, there are new ones on the horizon with strong energy and inspiration behind them. Your thoughts?

  1. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord Blog Magazine and commented:
    There are some fascinating and ancient forms of foretelling the future and one of the most interesting to me is Tarot Cards.. in the hands of a skilled reader they can inspire, motivate and scare…. No fears this week with the positive energy from Jan Sikes post on Monday not just from the Tarot Cards but also a five minute positive thinking exercise.. head over to be re-energised..


    1. For sure, John. And especially a reward in a monetary form. But as writers, we know the odds of that are slim, so our rewards have to be in the satisfaction of successfully telling another story. Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Yes! Hopefully, you will hear something this week, sister. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll get a release date for Jagged Feathers this week. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. Thank you for stopping by! Love you!!


    1. Hmmmm, more pumpkin beer, Craig? 🙂 Just joking, of course. I see something very interesting on your horizon. Halloween is coming and can’t wait to see what you do for that! Have a great day!

  3. I am in the middle of a project right now, but I’m also looking ahead to others on the horizon. I do feel energized by the project I’m currently working on at the moment and am often frustrated when I can’t fit time in to dedicate to it.

    I LOVE the rose pink dragon. What a gorgeous card!

    1. I can relate to that frustration, Mae. While I don’t work full time, I do work part-time and often I’m just getting started good and creativity flowing when I have to shut it down and head out. 🙂 Part of life’s challenges, I suppose. It’s wonderful to feel energized by a creative project. I’ve been stalled, but today feel the energy pulling me forward! I love the dragon cards and am enjoying working with them. This one was stunning! Thank you for stopping by, Mae, and have a great day! Hugs!

    1. That is an interesting observation, Staci, and it’s true. While things appear the same, every day brings a different challenge or joy. I’m raising my coffee cup to the joys! Thank you for stopping by! Hugs!

    1. Lol, Annika. Mental chatter is our constant companion. But after a while, we just tune it out, much like the noises around us. Thank you for your comment. I’m happy you enjoyed the post!

    1. I’m in the same boat, Joan, in that I’ve stalled out writing my WIP. But I’m energized and ready to tackle it along with all the blog posts I need to write for the launch of the new book. I’m happy you enjoyed the meditation! We all benefit from positive affirmations! Thank you for leaving a comment!

  5. I just finished remodeling my bathrooms, and now that school has started, I’m completely enthralled with two new programs to learn and teach. I’m also getting reading to promote my soon-to-release book and will spend some time this week writing blog posts to promote it. I’ve been putting it off, but with a reading like that, I’m all in! Great post, Jan! 🙂
