#MondayMotivation – #Meditation – #TarotReading – #AngelOracleCard

Welcome to another Monday post. I hope you leave with some inspiration to carry you through the week ahead. I love today’s quote so much!

I found this meditation to be uplifting and a great way to start the day.

The Tarot cards could not have given us a more positive outlook on the week ahead!

I almost feel as if these cards need no explanation from me. All three are positive and uplifting.

The look on the Page of Swords’ face says he is poised, eager, and ready to learn. Remember swords represent the mind or intellect. He is grounded, yet with his head in the clouds. The wind is gently blowing, and birds are peacefully flying above. This card urges you to be open to fresh perspectives and opportunities to engage your mind. If you’re waiting for an answer to an inquiry, this card indicates the news will offer valuable information about a new option or help you expand your horizons. The only warning attached to this card is to make sure you formulate a solid plan before jumping into something new.

The Three of Cups is a celebration of some kind. It depicts pure joy and urges you to be more fun and playful. It also focuses on spending time with family or friends. It may symbolize a collaboration with people who support you. This type of connection helps empower you to feel safe in taking on a new project, knowing you have a strong team to back you up. Connecting with others is a great stress reliever and rejuvenates your spirit. Indulge in activities you find joyous, and that feel expansive.

The Four of Wands is another celebration card. It symbolizes an organized celebration. Look to your own life and achievements. How do you want to celebrate your wins? Completing a goal or project is a great reason to celebrate. It is possible you will enjoy some well-deserved recognition for your hard work. This is an exciting time of creativity and progress in your career, so take a moment to celebrate yourself.


I honestly don’t know that I can add anything to all of that. These cards indicate only wonderful and good times ahead this week with cause for celebration. That gives me confidence that my doctor’s appointment will bring nothing but good results! Also, on a personal front, my book, Saddled Hearts, is up for voting this week for the Rone Award. While I am not a fan of voting contests, I will be doing my best to give the book what it deserves. And if it wins, most certainly I will celebrate!

How about you? Do you have something coming up to celebrate? Tell us!

The Angel card is so comforting and beautiful this week! It certainly goes hand-in-hand with the tarot cards, right?

All is Well
Archangel Jeremiel: "Everything is happening exactly as it is supposed to, with hidden blessings you will soon understand."

Also, I am over at Story Empire today talking about the use of Essential Oils and Herbs in fiction writing. I’d love it if you’d head on over!

  3. I’m definitely celebrating! I finished the novella that was hanging over my head and supposed to release May 30th. It’ll be tight getting the edits back and formatting by then but at least it’s finally done. After my surgery three weeks ago, I seriously had my doubts. This has been one of the biggest struggles of my life. Love you, sister.

    1. YES!! You have lots to celebrate. You are a warrior, sister! It’s in our genes to never give up. I am celebrating with you and looking forward to finishing mine this week! I love you so much! Thank you for stopping by!


  4. Great reading! I can definitely connect. I was invited to be part of a poetry anthology a few months back, and this week is the book blog tour and release, so I’m very excited about that and am definitely celebrating that new venture. I also have a student poet who is a finalist for a poetry competition this Wednesday, so I’m taking a group of students to watch and support her (and hopefully celebrate her win). Oh, and I voted for your book (and Diana’s) in that contest, so good luck! Great post, Jan!

    1. That is fantastic, Mary. I’m glad you had a huge birthday celebration AND got some rest. We need to give ourselves that gift now and then. Thank you for your comment and for your thoughts and prayers! I hope you have a fantastic week ahead!


  7. Yes, I’ll celebrate. I’m filing our taxes this morning. (I usually don’t wait this long, but that’s a load off my mind.) But the even bigger news is that I’m within 17,000 words of completing the first draft of my novel! That’s exciting.

    Love the angel card. Off to check out Story Empire now.

  8. Really a great reading, Jan. The Three of Cups also represent new beginnings or new things coming, like a child is the result of two people. So, this too makes the reading a perfect whole. Make a plan, be ready, and go with the signs and you will find wonderful fulfillment that will be recognized and appreciated. Really a fantastic reading!

    1. I love that, Erika, and thank you for adding that aspect of the Three of Cups. It’s exciting to see what lies ahead, but so important to stay grounded in the present moment. I hope we all experience an upswing of good things in the hours and days ahead. I’m glad you enjoyed the reading. Thank you for taking the time to stop by!

      1. I cannot wait to experience it. It sounds so uplifting and motivating – simply perfect for a Monday. So, have a great week, Jan 😊


  9. These are great cards to start a new week, Jan. I’ll keep you in my prayers that you’re able to find some answers at your doctor’s appointment. If I ever finish my edits (due tomorrow) I’ll be celebrating. But I have another book due in under two months, so maybe I’ll hold off the party. 🙂 I love the angel card!
