The question I typically ask when shuffling the cards, and then drawing the one that lights up my intuitive yes, was replaced for this week's reading. The question I was guided to ask was:
What do we need to do this week?
Our answer, in card form from the Work Your Light oracle deck, is:
We need to Break the Chain. Notice the subtext: "Ancestral patterns. Healing. Rewriting the future." Do any of those stand out for you or resonate with you? (For myself, the stand-outs are healing and rewriting the future.)
I'm seeing this to-do walking arm-in-arm with the call-to-action that came through our December energy reading. Imagine that. ;-) Let's hear from our spirit teams.
Our message for this week
"Now comes the time to change the present and the future. Now comes the time to create an evolution of old patterns, both personal and ancestral. The energy for this week urges a final, thorough reflection upon that which is ingrained and yet has no service upon your life. How will you shift this? What will it take for you to make this a priority and a blessing?
"The nature of the energy for this week is fraught with a residual tension that holds no merit in the weeks to come. The changes you engage with during this week will have a momentous effect upon you moving forward into the weeks to come.
"Position yourself in the way of a gatekeeper. The way of this will engage you to prohibit the passage of any tendencies, behaviors and habits from echoing any further. This is the work for this week. May it bring you peace."
Talk about perfect timing. It occurs to me that we're in Mercury retrograde through the 6th, and then it moves forward, as do we. (After that, there's a shadow period lasting seven to ten days.) And that's why this is perfect timing. We're still in the throes of that reflective, reflexive energy which supports this form of work. Let's make good use of it.
