#MotivationMonday – #Meditation – #TarotCardReading #AngelOracleCard

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I enjoyed spending Mother’s Day with my daughters and grandchildren. There’s nothing better!

This quote from Tennessee Williams touched me, and I hope it will you as well.

There are so many wonderful meditations on YouTube to choose from, and I found a new source today.

Our weekly reading indicates a mixture of possible events.

The Two of Cups indicates a partnership or sharing of ideas and emotions. The meeting of two brings balance and harmony to a nurturing relationship. This card indicates you are ready to or have taken an existing connection to a deeper level. The lion symbolizes passion and protection from above, while the caduceus evokes balance in communication.

The Sun always brings clarity and enthusiasm. Often the sun will appear after a dark period, illuminating murky situations and dispelling confusion and doubt. Seeing the world through the eyes of a child or connecting to your own inner child is a rewarding and productive way to utilize this card’s energy. The Sun card brings renewed vitality and improved health. Be on the lookout for any opportunities that may come your way, as they may prove to be very beneficial.

The Six of Swords is often referred to as The Ferryman card. It is indicative of moving forward on a healing journey, leaving behind what no longer works for you. And you are not alone. While the water is choppy on one side of the boat, what lies ahead on the other side is peaceful and serene. It’s not always easy to make this journey and release old patterns. But the effort is worthwhile, and it’s comforting to know we are never alone. This card may also indicate physical travel.


The Two of Cups describes my Mother’s Day yesterday. It was a wonderful opportunity to spend time with family and deepen our connection through honest communication and sharing of love. I’m always happy to see The Sun card as it dispels darkness and brings optimism and clarity. And when can we not use that? I need it every day! We’ve had the Six of Swords before, and it is always a sign of moving forward and releasing the past. I love that we are moving toward something better. That should always be our goal in life.

What about you? Do any of these cards speak to you?

Here is our beautiful Angel card for the week.

Archangel Raguel: "Notice your recurring physical and emotional feelings, as they signify Divine guidance."

It’s time for another Monday post that I hope you will find inspiring! I love this quote!

And this meditation left me feeling relaxed and confident!

Now for some guidance from the Tarot cards.

This is a feel-good draw for the week ahead. The Ten of Cups basically represents a celebration of some sort. I had two pretty big celebrations over the weekend, so it is fitting for me. Another interpretation is a culmination of emotional fulfillment, which opens the gateway to the next adventure. Emotional fulfillment looks different for each individual at different stages in their life. So, take a minute to think about what that means to you. If you have longstanding family issues, this card indicates a positive resolution. Enjoy the sensation of feeling secure with your overall well-being, and make time to celebrate your successes with people who feel like family. The number ten indicates the completion of a cycle. One cycle is ending so that another may begin.

The Strength card is pretty straightforward. It reminds us that it’s not the size of our muscles but the willingness within our hearts that matters. When we show courage, we can endure any obstacles we encounter. You can trust yourself to handle any situation that arises. The infinity symbol on the card indicates we are all capable of overcoming struggles both internally and externally. Whether you’re making changes in your life or working to reach the next deepest level of your connection with the divine, you have what it takes to face and overcome any challenges with bravery trusting your inner strength.

The Three of Wands can indicate an adventure that lies ahead. You use your energy to work with others. Surrounding yourself with inspiring people will help you expand to the next level of personal growth. There may be an element of waiting for the right opportunity to come to you, but you are reminded to be creative and productive, allowing expanded prosperity to grow. This card can also often indicate travel of some kind.


On a personal level, the celebration card fits my weekend perfectly. I took my books to the guitar show on Saturday, then celebrated my youngest grandson’s birthday on Sunday. I love that it is a completion and gateway card. It’s always exciting to see what the next adventure might be. And it’s comforting to know we have what it takes to overcome challenges, whether internal or external, with courage. Then be aware of opportunities for your next adventure that will expand growth. Sounds like a great week ahead to me!

Thoughts? Does this reading resonate with you in any way?

And this Angel oracle card is perfect for spring cleaning season!

With the Three of Swords, you are given the opportunity to embrace and acknowledge heartbreaking truths and the pain surrounding them. It could either be related to a current situation or in the past. The position it sits in indicates the past (especially to me, as this is the 14th anniversary of my husband’s passing). However, the advice is to open your heart and mind, and your intuition will guide you. Accept your emotions with compassion and take this opportunity to release and heal. Leaning on your spiritual practice will help you through times of sadness. That is a fact to which I can attest.

The World from the major arcana is all about the end of a cycle. The advice from this card is to celebrate your wins and acknowledge how far you’ve come. Celebrate where you are now and reflect on your journey so far. There is excitement around what is yet to come, and you are ready to begin a new journey from a place of empowerment and maturity.

The Two of Swords may indicate a period of indecision. It may be a painful period of trying to figure out what to do next and being afraid you’ll make the wrong choice. You can move into self-protective mode. If you ask for advice and support, perhaps it will ease your mind. Yet, ultimately, listening to your own intuition and taking action on your own will provide the relief and clarity you seek. Perhaps you’ve been protecting yourself from pain due to fears that stem from experiences in the past. Taking time to gather your thoughts before moving forward is always good. You can make courageous choices if you can trust yourself.


Where do I start? I feel this reading was just for me, but as I pulled the cards, I prayed for something to share with everyone. Still, it fits me so perfectly now on the anniversary of Rick’s death. The pain and heartache are real, as indicated in the Three of Swords, but it also doesn’t have to be crippling. Think about how far you’ve come on your journey and celebrate your wins. (Okay, I think I will) Then moving forward with your next step need not be something to fear. I love the words, ‘make courageous choices and trust yourself.’

What say you? Does this reading apply to you at all?

The Angel card brought tears to my eyes. I swear, you cannot make this stuff up. I could not have orchestrated any of this. It just happened.

Archangel Azrael: "I am with you in your time of need, helping your heart to heal."

Welcome back to another Monday of inspiration. I hope you leave uplifted and ready to tackle a new week. I fell in love with this simple quote. It makes so much sense to me.

Here’s a meditation to help you gain your footing. Jason Stephenson is one of my favorite meditation guides.

The tarot cards today are very powerful. Two are from the Major Arcana, affecting our lives below the surface.

The High Priestess is the second card in the Major Arcana. She is like the moon and sees through the darkness, illuminating what is hidden. She reminds us that all we need to know is already within us. Connecting to the divine is an internal, not an external, process. You have the ability to connect with and commune with your higher self at any time. The High Priestess urges you to clear your mind and ask your heart for the answers you seek. You are encouraged to follow intuitive urges when making financial and business decisions, even if you’re tempted to investigate endlessly. You have the answers you need without relying on other people’s opinions. Intuition and self-knowledge are the keywords.

The Chariot is a symbol of building momentum and creating your plan of action. It is possible that you are embarking on an important journey (literal or virtual) or moving toward the next level of your life goals. You are asked to have a clear intention, focus, and a plan for taking action. Building a solid foundation and creating structure are both necessary steps before making a big decision. Now is the time to take inspired action toward your goals. Success comes with focus, determination, and clear intention.

With the Knight of Pentacles, we are minded that the quest for prosperity moves slowly and steadily. True success is a long game, so there is no need to rush the process. There is no get-rich scheme indicated with this card. Solid effort daily will yield the most lasting and meaningful results. Sometimes these turn into mundane tasks, but I am reminded of the tortoise and the hare. Slow and steady wins the race. You are encouraged to show up fully and enthusiastically in all areas of your life. If you’re waiting for a return on investment, be patient and stay on task. Long-term abundance and steady progress are the keywords for this card.


When I consider that we have two Major Arcana cards this week, the reading takes on a deeper meaning, as they affect big life events and important lessons. Relying on intuition is a huge part of the message, as well as having a clear intention, focus, and determination. What is it you genuinely seek? Know that returns on daily investment of your time, your energy, and your knowledge come slowly but are lasting.

I love the message on the Angel card!

Relationship Harmony
Archangel Raguel: "We angels are opening the hearts of everyone involved. Arguments and conflicts are being resolved now."

I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

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
