I'm being a little self indulgent today as it is my birthday and sharing a personal birthday reading with you. It's not every day you turn 40 after all! I posted some thoughts on this milestone recently and how I plan to use the energy of my year card which is Judgement. Today is actually D Day though!
'Judgement' is already making itself felt in my life this year with an almost domino effect of things falling into place and giving me a great big shove towards my soul purpose. I'm happier than I've been in a long time and have lots of plans I'm excited about for this year.
For this reading I'm using a Happy Birthday spread by Lisa Frideborg. The spread looks at what challenges and blessings are coming our way as well as how to be (a) present to others. We don't always value ourselves and our gifts and I'm certainly as guilty of that as the next person.
1. How to be (a) present to everyone around you this year - 5 of Pentacles
2. A challenge to tackle. - Queen of Wands
3. A blessing bestowed. - Knight of Wands
4. A passing influence – The Sun
5. What’s coming into your life. – The Star
6. Do less of this in the year ahead - The Tower
7. Do more of this to be truly happy this year - Temperance.
Well! So much for keeping it light! The first thing I noticed here, well second after those 4 big hitting majors, was the sheer amount of Fire energy here. There is going to be a lot of movement and action for me it seems. Who's got the matches because it looks as though the Universe is about to light a fire under my arse!
For how to be a present to everyone around me this year I got the 5 of Pentacles. I need to stop feeling sorry for myself. Yes I have challenges, particularly in my health but who doesn't? I have the tendency though to let these things define me. Also I will be better able to help others the more I help myself. Know my limits and push them!
A challenge to tackle had to be the Queen of Wands! I aspire to the confidence and self assured ambition of this lady among other characteristics of hers. It makes sense that my confidence and oomph would be the challenge for me here so she comes as no surprise.
A blessing bestowed by the Knight of Wands is that aforementioned oomph! It's been a while since my get up and go got up and went , but here's the Knight bringing sexy back as he does best! I'm looking forward to a fresh boost of energy and enthusiasm.
The Sun as a passing influence may not look too great at first .. passing joy? But look at the smug look on the face of that Sun. I get the feeling of having been over shadowed by others egos, and of having allowed myself to be so. I am free to be myself now and express my own light.
Whats coming into my life .. The Star. I may be doing a little happy dance in my head right now .. healing, renewed faith in myself and all that Starry goodness!
The Tower says I need to stop holding myself back with old and restrictive belief patterns, indulge in less self sabotage and self destructive behaviour! Yes, I can agree with that for sure. The Star will help here.
Finally, what I need to do more of to be truly happy these coming months is Temperance. Again this card appearing here is not a huge surprise. One of my biggest goals this year is weight loss and health improvement. There are few, if any, cards more healing than Temperance. I need to find my middle ground, no more extremes and trust in a little divine guidance.
I have kept this quite brief. I will go deeper in my own time as more insights come to mind and I soak it all in. I'm pretty pleased with this reading though! It looks like an interesting year ahead,
I hope you've enjoyed this little peek into my life and my reading style. If you would like to check out my reading services you can do so here .
