Please read through post before choosing. Thank you. ❤️
In honor of my birthday today, I wanted to do another collective spread! Much like me entering into a new cycle of life, you all are entering new cycles well. Death of things that are no longer in alignment with your highest good. Rebirth and renewal for all that is. In 2020 we end a 10 year cycle and begin to enter into a new one. What do the energies have in store for you and your life?
Take a moment and take a deep breath. Let your intuition guide you. Choose a card from each row.
1-5 is what Spirit wants you to know.
6-10 is the supporting energy for your first card.
11-13 is an overall energy.
Leave your chosen cards in the comments below. You may be drawn to more than one card for a row, that’s fine. Feel free to share this post and tag a friend who may need some guidance as well.
If you feel like the messages I give resonate deeply with you and you want to pay it forward, I’m going to leave my PayPal link below. If you would like to donate any amount, even $5, this helps me to be able to continue to do this for you all. I appreciate you all.
Shake free what isn’t in alignment with you and your highest good as you enter into a new cycle. In this moment let your Spiritual rebirth begin. Sending blessings in abundance to you.
Oracle decks used:
Mystical Shaman Oracle by, Alberto Villoldo ~ Collette Baron Reid ~ Marcela Lobos
Native Spirit by, Denise Linn
Earth Magic by, Steven Farmer
1 ~ The Council
The Council are the luminous beings who hold the collective wisdom of humanity. Know that their wisdom is available to you at all times when you live in a state of yes, in an unconditional relationship with life. They remind you of your place around a sacred fire, which has been reserved for you since the beginning of time. You will claim it when you own your inner wisdom.
You are never alone. The Council and their guidance is always with you. Turn a deaf ear to that nagging voice from your ego that tells you that you are not up for the task before you. Meditate and invite your guides in. It’s time to really connect with your Council and listen to the spiritual wisdom they have to offer. They are always sending you signs and messages and are with you as you embark on this new journey.
2 ~ The Ancient Ones
The Ancient Ones are the Shamans of the old who defeated death and escaped from the tyranny of time. The Ancient Ones once walked the earth like us, in flesh and bone. Now they reside in infinity and can counsel us after we say yes to our calling. They are available to help us attain our full realization.
The Ancient Ones are inviting you to reach to the future to help birth a new destiny for the Earth. Go ahead; find out who you are becoming 10,000 years from now. If you accept the invitation, great power and blessings will come your way and allow you to craft a new destiny for yourself. Do not hesitate to bite off more than you can chew, because you have unlimited spiritual resources available right now.
3 ~ Coyote
The Coyote is the symbol of the sacred trickster, the one who provides detours for growth and understanding by ensuring that things don’t go as planned. The Coyote brings the energy of divine deception to set you free from the shackles of that which doesn’t serve you. Sometimes it appears that you will get everything you want, only to find that Coyote brings you the opposite of what you hoped for. The lessons offered by Coyote May at first appear confusing, but they are most sacred and always for your highest good.
Are you being seduced by what you think you desire? Could it be that the more superficial, sparkly, shining aspects of your ambition led you in this moment? Perhaps you feel that I order to get what you desire, you have to compromise yourself, control others or manipulate situations to ensure your goal is met? Coyote howls in the shadows to remind you that this may be a lesson too painful to learn. Beware the shallow waters right now. Something or someone might pretend to be deep, but that doesn’t make them so, no matter how seductive their superficial traits and how beautiful to sparkly they may appear. All that glitters there will not turn up gold, no matter how many wishes you make to change that.
4 ~ Thunder
Legends speak of great Thunder Beings who live in the sky and call for your attention when great occurrences are meant to happen in the world. They warn when tensions in a situation are called upon to be released. Their presence in your reading reminds you of the dramatic moments in life that change everything. Both awesome and frightening when Thunder arrives, it is also a wake-up call, one that you will not soon forget.
When Thunder comes into your reading, it refers to a big dramatic change that feels like a herd of wild bison in the run. You feel it right through your bones, and you know that you are powerless to influence whatever events have been set into motion. This is a time to be prepared for anything. Your life is an adventure, and wonderful opportunities are arriving now. The tick is to learn to run with them. Qualities that you’ll need now more than ever are flexibility, dexterity, and a willingness to experience it all without dictating from where or in what form opportunity will come. Your destiny is arriving. Be ready.
5 ~ Lightening
The formidable electrical discharge of a lightening bolt brightens the sky and strikes Earth, accompanied by the mighty sound of thunder. This phenomenon has a positive aspect- the light illuminated the Earth and the psyche. But there is a destructive side as well; the bolt can burn, and even kill, if it’s too strong.
The forces of the upper world are investing their gathered energies to ignite you with new inspiration and creativity. Allow the divine gift of awakening to take root in your being, and enjoy and renewed sense of clarity, passion, and vision.
6 ~ Medicine Bag
Gather your resources. Be discerning. Vast inner power is growing in your life. Step back and let it grow. There are times to shine brightly for all to see, and there are also times to choose carefully who sees your true self. Choose wisely. Do not make hasty decisions. If it doesn’t feel right, hold back. You’re protective from any less-than-positive outside influences. Your capacity and potential are growing in leaps and bounds.
It’s traditional in indigenous cultures to carry a medicine bag or medicine bundle as a form of protection and also as a way to access your personal power through the sacred observation that are held there. The items in the medicine bag each contain potent qualities that allows one’s ability to magnify and also help one commune with the Creator. As your power grows, take time to protect it. Just as you protect a seedling in the early months, and then later— once it’s an established tree— it can withstand the storms of time. Protect your growing power, and it will become as mighty as an ancient oak.
Consider obtaining or creating your own medicine bag or bundle. Put objects in it that are meaningful to you and make you feel strong and vital whenever you look at them or hold them. Traditionally, one’s medicine bag was not worn for display, but often hidden from view or kept in a sacred place.
7 ~ Tracker
Focus your intent and your passion on one thing, rather than being scattered in different directions. Be single-minded in what’s truly important in your life, and let everything else go. Track the unseen (but very real) stream of energy to that which you desire.
Trackers have the ability to be so focused that everything but their goal disappears. What you see around you is the result of what you focus on. When you direct your thoughts toward good, you attract positive experiences and people into your life; but when you focus on what isn’t working, you create even more challenging situations. If you aren’t pleased with the direction of your life, concentrate on what you desire— not on what you don’t want. To develop inner power, focus intently on one thing. Being scattered in a myriad of directions dilutes your strength. Devote your attention to your family, community, career, relationships, hobbies, or anything you’re passionate about. Diminish activities that aren’t essential to your goals, and it will be just a matter of time before miracles begin to occur.
Write down how much time, on average, that you spend on different activities during the day. If there is anything nonessential (that doesn’t feed your soul), find ways to diminish it and focus on what’s truly important.
8 ~ Spirit Keeper of the North
Take time for contemplation. Turn within. Connect with your ancestors. Incubate ideas. Mend relationships. Watch your dreams. Meditate. The answers are inside you waiting to be heard. Stay warm. Create dreams for your future. Repair whatever is broken in your home and your life. Forgive those people and situations that you’ve been dragging around for a while.
In the medicine wheel, the north is the direction that symbolizes the darkest time of the night, the coldest part of winter, the dark of the moon. It also represents the elder time in life and even a time of endings. Pulling the Spirit Keeper of the North indicates that it’s time to take measure of your life. Explore what’s working and what’s not working. What and whom do you need to release? It’s also time to make repairs in your physical environment, as well as make repairs to your body. Additionally, this is the time to begin to dream and make plans regarding your future. Your ancestors are close at this time; call on them. They want to help you.
Stand outdoors at night, facing north. Inhale the darkness. Sink into your own depth. In the stillness, Ancient winsome emerges.
9 ~ Freedom Horse
Let your spirit fly! Do not hold back. Break free and express yourself. Flaunt your stuff, dance, laugh, explore, and go beyond predictable behavior. Get out of the rut. You do not need to fit the mold. Be daring. Fling your arms to the heavens in joy.
This card chooses you to remind you that you aren’t here to be ordinarily, but to step beyond limitations and self imposed boundaries. Don’t allow yourself to be trapped by convention or the expectation of others. You have the ability to choose your life on your terms. Replace the phrase “I should” with “I could . . . but I choose not to at this time.” Perhaps you aren’t always free to create the exact circumstances of your life— but your certainly able to decide what meaning to give those situations. Select meanings that empower you, for this is the time to break free.
The way you use your body can change your state. Put on music and dance with wild abandon. As you do so, this sends a powerful message to your subconscious that you are indeed truly free.
10 ~ Talking Stick
Speak your truth. The soul loves truth: Communicate from your heart, and share your reality without hesitation. Be willing to stand before the crowd and share from your center. This isn’t the time to be shy and hesitant; it’s time to heal through communication. You have the gift of a true leader, through the way you communicate with others.
During tribal council meetings, a decorated stick, called a “talking stick,” would be passed around. As each council member held the stick, he or she had the opportunity to speak from the heart. Each person in attendance would be asked to weigh carefully the words of each speaker. The talking stick reminded each person to be authentic. Communication restores trust and allows you to clarify your ideas, position, and feelings. It can be healing when you share what has been withheld. Now is the time to take a risk and have the courage to speak with clarity. Be forthright. Share any unspoken darkness that lays heavy in the heart. There are times to hold back and be discerning, but this isn’t one of them. Even if you’re afraid, declare your truth for all to hear without fear of being rejected or misunderstood. When you do this, transformation and healing can occur.
Decorate a stick (or a feather) to use a your patronage talking stick. Whenever you hold it, let it be a sacred reminder to seek the truth within. Take a minute every day to take stock of where you are and to ask yourself about “what is so” in your life. Simply taking a moment to discover your inner truth can have a profound healing effect on your life.
11 ~ Lotus Flower ~ Unfoldment ~
You do not need to strive or be driven by spiritual ambition. It does no good to try to force growth upon yourself— or others, for that matter. Allowing is the key here. Allow the place in you that naturally wants to follow the light to do so whole recognizing that even when you have complete faith, you will face challenges and, take occasionally, suffering. Your stead faith and love will guide you on your journey of returning to the light.
12 ~ Ancestors ~ Generations ~
You have within you the blood of your ancestors. You are deeply connected to your linage, the most immediate proof of that being the physical resemblance you have to your mother and father and perhaps even grandparents. Yet beyond that, although unknown to your usual senses , you are connected to an ancestry that reaches back through the millennia. This is the time to call upon those ancestors, those who are of your bloodline as well those ancient ones that have walked the land that you now walk. In many indigenous cultures, it is believed that the essence of your ancestors inhabits many of the physical aspects of the land. In other words, they are in the trees, the water, the air, the animals, the stones— their blood being in the very dirt and sand you tread upon, next time you are outside, allow your senses to open to those ancestors who abide in the physical world. And anytime at all, allow your heart to open to those Spirits to whom you are related though your heredity and to those shine you are connected by virtue of the land upon which you live.
13 ~ Autumn Equinox ~ Release ~
Now is the time to let anything in your life fall always that is no longer useful or needed for the emerging expression of who you are. Allow yourself to gradually shed what has become burdensome and no longer congruent with your soul’s purpose. Conserve your energy by allowing yourself more rest while at the same time making preparations for the winter season. Look especially at your material possessions and be brutally honest with yourself as you discern which of these can be given away or somehow released. Consider shedding relationships that have served their purpose and are no longer viable, as well as work or a job that has become devoid of interest and passion. With release comes a sense of being much lighter. Just like the trees that openly bear their nakedness once their leaves have departed and give room for whatever new Life is ready to birth following a period of quiet and gestation. So let go of whatever has outlived its purposefulness and trust that something else will take its place.
