The Gift of His Presence: a young man’s Christmas story.

Kelly is a natural-born Spirit channel, psychic medium and lightworker based in Singapore. A gifted oracle, she offers Angel and Tarot readings, animal communication sessions, and energy healing services.

“God bless ye, merry gentlemen, let nothing ye dismay.”

This is a Christmas story about a young man who was lost, and his family and loved ones who found healing.

Christopher was twenty-one, a tall and lean young man on the cusp of adulthood. He was an athlete, having represented his college in tennis. He came from a rather well-to-do family. His parents enjoyed a close relationship with him; his girlfriend Prissa adored him, and so did his dog, a huge black Labrador named Toby.

But Christopher had a secret that bore heavily on his broad young shoulders. Since young, he had suffered from depression and bipolar disorder. Only those suffering from mental illnesses, and the ones close to them, can truly understand the daily anguish of living in a constant state of emotional and psychological turmoil.

Due to the stigma of mental illness, Christopher, his family and girlfriend kept his secret to themselves. No one else knew what Christopher went through.

Then Christopher and Prissa had an argument at a Christmas Eve gathering (as people in love inevitably do) and Prissa raised her voice and yelled I think your bipolar is just an excuse for poor self-control, and if you have another relapse I’m not taking care of you, ever.

Whether Prissa meant it at the time, whether she ever meant it or only said it out of frustration – that no longer matters. Christopher took it very, very seriously.

Christopher vanished later that night.

Statistics on depression and suicide indicate that suicide attempts tend to peak during festive occasions. Whether Christopher intended to commit suicide that night is unclear, and isn’t important anyway.

What we do know is that Christopher was shirtless and barefoot, clad only in his jeans and with his ID in his back pocket, when he was knocked down and killed by a speeding car at about 3 am.

After the calls from the police, the identification of the body, the mind-numbing, soul-crushing arrangements for a funeral while others celebrated the birth of Christ, Prissa vaguely remembered a name and a number given to her when she was looking for a Tarot consultant. Fighting the endless tears and the deep brokenness of her spirit, Prissa called.

And asked for the psychic medium.

Not now, Prissa, the voice on the other end of the phone answered. Christopher is currently undergoing a difficult transition into the afterlife, as most suicides and sudden deaths do. He needs space to heal. So do you all. I’ll let you know when it’s time.

About six months later, when the psychic medium arrived at Christopher’s family home for the mediumship session, they were surprised at how young she looked. But once the session began, any doubts they had about her ability melted away. A natural-born Spirit channel and medium, she passed on messages from Christopher’s deceased grandparents and Prissa’s guardian angels; she also conducted some energy healing on Toby, who had been silently grieving the loss of his master and friend.

But Kelly, what about Christopher? Does he have a message for us? Christopher’s mother asked.

I need to apologise to Chris for what I said that night. I’m so sorry, Prissa said, weeping.

I want to know how my son is doing, Christopher’s father muttered sombrely.

Kelly shut her eyes.

She said, softly: He’s around, but his energy is weak. He’s getting used to life in the Spirit realm. He says he loves you all, and he’s sorry too. He’ll be back for Christmas this year.

How will we know? What are the signs? Christopher’s mother asked, the quiet desperation of bereavement straining her low voice.

He’ll do his best to let you know. And you will know.

*          *          *

“Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright.”

Six months on, and the next Christmas arrived like a thief in the night.

Christopher’s parents and Prissa followed Kelly’s – or rather, Christopher’s – instructions and held a cosy Christmas Eve dinner with some relatives and close friends. Christopher had specifically requested: Don’t coop yourselves up. Celebrate just as we used to. It’s also my first death anniversary, so celebrate my life. Enjoy the festive season with the people you love. I’ll be there with a gift – I promise.

At first, they were nervous, and had no idea why. But after the initial anxiety faded, Christopher’s parents and Prissa began to relax and enjoy themselves. They ate and drank. They shared their fondest memories of Christopher – his sporting talents, his deep laugh, his many lovable quirks. They laughed. They cried. They embraced.

Then at midnight, Toby began to bark at the front door.

Toby was always a quiet dog, smart and affectionate. But there was a joyous quality to Toby’s high-pitched barking and the glad, incessant wagging of his tail, a joy that silenced the party and brought tears to many eyes.

It was how Toby used to greet Christopher when he came home.

Oh my God. Oh my God. Do you smell that? Tell me I’m not going crazy, Prissa suddenly said aloud. Everyone looked at each other in quiet awe. The lights were shining brilliantly, much more brightly than usual – almost blindingly so. And the faint, but unmistakable scent of Christopher’s cologne was wafting through the air.

The fragrance lasted all of ten seconds, and then it was gone. The lights dimmed; Toby calmed down and went to nap in a corner, whimpering softly in his sleep. Christopher’s bereaved loved ones hugged each other and wept: with joy, with relief, with the deep consolation borne of profound grief and love.

Christopher had kept his promise: he had come for the party, bringing his Christmas gift – his presence from the Other Side. And with his return, Christopher brought healing and reassurance to his loved ones that Spirit outlives life itself, and Love is stronger than death.

“O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.”

This Week’s Tarot, 21-27 Nov 2016

20161119_212054

This is Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp week: Scorpio passes the baton to Sagittarius on Monday, 21 November. As a mutable Fire sign, Sagittarius is free-spirited, jovial and outspoken. Sagittarius energies will lift our spirits and promote a more philosophical approach to life. Careful with the philosophising, though: on Thursday, 24 November, light-hearted and expansive Jupiter (which rules Sagittarius) squares dark, intense Pluto (which rules Scorpio, incidentally). So be careful of what you say, and how you say it, because misunderstandings are likely to arise – cusps can be tricky like that, but no worries, it’s just the energies shifting. Stay calm, everyone: at work, keep your head down and your eye on the ball; in personal relationships and situations, stay upbeat and positive (in other words, do a Sagittarius!).

That said, check out This Week’s Tarot! 🙂

LEFT: SEVEN OF SWORDS. Some call this The Thief’s card; others call it The Lone Wolf. When this card appears, what you see is not what you get, and trust issues may come into play. Have people, incidents and events in recent times shaken your faith in humanity and left you feeling robbed of what you deserve? Or perhaps you’re involved in something which, if it ever saw the light of day, would damage what you hold dear and leave you vulnerable. You might be feeling helpless and lonely in a difficult situation, at work or elsewhere.

Dear one, Spirit and the Universe are for you – not against you. You are not alone. In that case, what can be done to alleviate the burden of the Seven Swords?

MIDDLE: SEVEN OF RODS. This Week’s Tarot suggests the Seven of Rods to balance out the energies of the Seven Swords. This is the card of self-assertion, and the key to self-assertion is being honest with yourself (rather than wilfully deceiving self and others, as the Seven of Swords sometimes suggests). Knowing who you are and what you stand for will be crucial when you make the choice to assert your political opinion, your racial/cultural/gender identity, your fashion choices… whatever!

Now bear in mind what I mentioned earlier about Jupiter squaring Pluto on Thursday, and remember: assertion is not aggression. Let your light shine with sunny Sagittarius flair. You don’t need to start fights about it, and you don’t have to take any nonsense from others who push your boundaries. And don’t worry about not pleasing other people – just do you. In time, the right people will be drawn to your light, and the right things will fall into place at the right time. The Universe is kind. Which brings us to…

RIGHT: THE STAR. This is a lovely card to round out This Week’s Tarot. When The Star appears, the light is appearing at the end of the tunnel. Hope springs eternal, dear one; even if you’re feeling like things right now are not going well for yourself (or the world around you), there is cause for optimism. The Star gives us the encouragement we need to stay focused and true to ourselves. Things will get better; it won’t be easy, and action must be taken for our individual and collective destinies to be shaped the way we want them to be, but they will get better. Hang in there, and do what’s right.

Have a great week ahead! 🙂

This Week’s Tarot, 14-20 Nov 2016

20161113_153411

This week begins with a Full Moon in Taurus on Monday, 14 November. It’s also a Supermoon, and will be at its closest to Earth since 1948! We’re not going to get another Supermoon like this till 25 November, 2034.

Full Moons (especially when they are also Supermoons) are a wonderful time for change and inner healing: Universal energies during Full Moons encourage us to release that which no longer serves our highest and greatest good. This is a necessary part of the energetic cycle because releasing the old allows us to receive, and work with, the new. You’re never entirely a passive observer or recipient of circumstances, regardless of how things may seem at the moment. You matter – so do your choices and actions. Trust that the Universe is kind and Spirit is on your side; release the old to co-create a new and wonderful destiny for yourself, your loved ones, your community, and our world.

So that’s VERY good news for the folks out there who are considering the following: making changes to lifestyle/habits/career, saying buh-bye to toxic people in their lives, releasing the emotions and energies they’re experiencing in the wake of the POTUS elections… Whatever you need to let go of, this week Monday is a great time!

This is a Taurus Supermoon, so let’s work with the energies of this fixed Earth sign. As much as change and release can be challenging, even stressful in these times, remember that patience, principles, perseverance and practicality (the traits we love about Taurus) will keep us grounded, turning our choices for good into forces to be reckoned with.

You’re never entirely a passive observer or recipient of circumstances. You matter – so do your choices and actions. Release the old to co-create a new and wonderful destiny.

I can’t wait to share This Week’s Tarot with you. Here we go! 🙂

LEFT: TWO OF RODS. This is the card associated with trustworthy advice, counselling and mentorship. It also alludes to networking and reaching out to connect with other, new people. Taurus rules the throat chakra, which governs how we communicate our truth to others. Part of releasing the old may require you to share your thoughts and feelings with a support network – so speak up! You may be pleasantly surprised to find that you are not alone in dealing with a sticky situation. That could be the kickstart we need in releasing and healing ourselves.

For my American readers who may be concerned about civil rights issues, The Two of Rods urges active engagement and advocacy. Remember to work with Taurus Supermoon energies – be patient, principled, persevering and practical. Join causes and communities to safeguard the rights of minorities and underprivileged groups. Raise awareness, make donations, be the voice for the voiceless (see the throat chakra reference I made there?). Take the necessary actions to bring about change – be brave, and be blessed! <3

MIDDLE: FIVE OF CUPS. This is the card of disappointment and grief. A lone figure mourns, under dark skies, over three spilt goblets of wine. Before him, in the distance, stands a ruined castle.

But not all is lost – behind the figure, two goblets of wine have not fallen. They only remain unseen. The message of this card is that there still is hope beyond disappointment. Sometimes all we need is a change in perspective.

If you are going through a tough time now, by all means, please do acknowledge and process those negative emotions. It’s healthy and often necessary to rage, cry, vent, or grieve, in appropriate ways. But we never let our lower energies or negative emotions dictate how we co-create our destinies. Back to the Two of Rods and the need for trustworthy advice/support groups – the good people around us can help when it’s hard for us to see past apparently insurmountable challenges.

RIGHT: FIVE OF SWORDS. When this card appears, I must emphasise the need (again!) to be honourable in whatever situation you may be facing. It could be family tensions, office politics, financial strain – you may be tempted to take shady shortcuts to get to where you want to be. Folks, don’t buckle. Remember the Rule of Karma, and trust me when I say that cheaters never prosper.

If you’re the one stuck in a situation where nasty, shady stuff is going on and you are getting hurt, this card is suggesting that perhaps it’s time to cut your losses and walk away – again, the energy of releasing the old comes through here.

It’s interesting that this spread contains two Fives. In Tarot numerology, Five is the number associated with rapid, dynamic change and growth, often in the form of challenges. It’s about (re-)perceiving and actively choosing what serves the highest good, in a situation otherwise widely lamented as a crisis or a time of darkness.

The Chinese term for crisis consists of two words: 危机. These two words mean danger () and opportunity () respectively. Are we in volatile, perhaps dangerous times? Yes. But even as we process our grief and anger and disappointment at whatever we’re facing, we see the opportunity for good, and we take action.

Sometimes all we need is a change in perspective. See the opportunity for good, and take action.

Be brave, and be blessed. Have a great week ahead! 🙂

Weekend Spirit Message, 11-13 Nov 2016: Reach out to connect.

As the dust settles worldwide after the POTUS election results are announced, there’s a planetary shift to note when we enter the weekend. Mercury, the planet governing communications, moves into candid and philosophical Sagittarius this Saturday and stays there till 2 December. People are going to be talking, and no prizes for which topic will trump the rest!

What does this mean for us? How do we stay sane in the midst of all that talk and debate? Well, try this: let your intention guide your communication this weekend (as it always should, but now more than ever in these volatile times). Ride the wave of outspoken Universal energies to reach out and connect with other people, not condemn. Think before you speak, and speak in love and humility; try to understand what the other person is saying, and don’t be afraid to ask questions if you need clarification. Remember, the goal is to connect – not judge. Pretty straightforward rules to follow if you want to avoid foot-in-mouth syndrome (which can happen with Sagittarius, but we still love you guys!).

Have a wonderful weekend connecting with other people in positive and meaningful ways!

This Week’s Tarot, 7-13 Nov 2016

20161106_092828

This Tuesday, 8 November, all eyes will be on America as the nation goes to vote. Here’s wishing voters all best! Another reason for celebration is that belligerent Mars enters humanitarian, high-minded Aquarius on the same day, encouraging the global community to use all that creative, aggressive Martian energy for the highest and greatest good of all.

So let’s get to it! Here’s This Week’s Tarot. 🙂

LEFT: QUEEN OF CUPS. This Queen represents our relationship with our emotional, intuitive side; the feminine aspect of our psyche, if you will. This year’s Scorpio season so far has been heavy-going for many, with some deeply suppressed issues suddenly erupting and boiling over. This Queen gently encourages us to be kind to ourselves and acknowledge, not ignore what we feel. Nevertheless, the placement of the Queen of Cups is pretty interesting. Notice she’s looking away absently into the distance? And therein lies the risk of over-indulging in our emotions – we lose focus.

MIDDLE: TWO OF PENTACLES. The young man in this card is giving the Queen of Cups some seriously judgemental side-eye here. And with good reason! The Two of Pentacles represents inner equilibrium; his message to us is to balance the opposing priorities, values and/or perspectives in our lives. Have your emotional issues (either denial, drama, or both) been getting the better of you lately? Time to set the balance right.

RIGHT: KING OF PENTACLES. What struck me immediately about the King of Pentacles in this spread (besides the fact that this dude is a major hottie) is the strength of his gaze. He’s staring right at us, the calmness and inner strength of this royal leader apparent in his eyes. Not only that, he’s surrounded by abundance: the grapes, vines and huge Pentacle in his hand are all Tarot symbols of material stability and success. This guy is focused on his goals in life, and knows what he needs to do to get there.

This Week’s Tarot urges us to gain and/or regain our focus on what matters in life. It is healthy to acknowledge and work with our emotions. But emotional suppression and emotional theatrics are two extremes that can hinder us from achieving our goals or leading our best lives. The key is to balance our emotional, intuitive and spiritual selves with the practical, material and strategic issues that make up much of our day-to-day living.

Dear one, remember you are loved. Life is out there, waiting for you to take the wheel and drive your own destiny. So get your focus on and get moving – we can all do our part to make humanity great again greater!

Have a great week ahead! 🙂

Healing the inner child, Part 2: 7 signs of a wounded inner child.

(Click here for the first article.)

Do you remember how it felt to be a child? Some of you recall happy and stable childhoods where you were loved and nurtured. Some of you remember feeling smothered, knowing that you were loved but vaguely unsure of why it made you unhappy. Some of you barely felt loved at all. And sadly, some remember being neglected or actively abused.

Many of my clients who come to me with seemingly insurmountable challenges in their lives, more often than not, realise during their consultations with me that their current problems are rooted in events and situations that occurred when they were young. Wounded as children and told to Get over it, Stop crying or I’ll hit you again, or Sit down and shut up, we did as we were told in order to avoid further mistreatment. But deep inside us, our inner child never healed from unresolved hurts.

How do wounded children behave? We’ve all seen young children tripping, falling over, and screaming their lungs out. We’ve seen frightened kids freeze, wet their pants, hurt themselves, hit other kids. Wounded children express their pain to the world in the hope that someone will help.

It doesn’t matter what age you are now. If your inner child has been wounded and left unhealed, you will tend to revert to certain actions, attitudes and behaviours that reveal that inner child’s vulnerability. You may have grown, but that inner child is still right there, deep inside you. Waiting for love, help and comfort. And in times of stress, that wounded inner child comes out and hijacks the show, no matter how well you’ve been running it.

The young man who fights with his boss – who resembles his own father. The middle-aged woman who can’t trust men, then hates herself for being single. The young woman whose eating disorders have taken over her life.

There is no one whose inner child is completely unhurt; in this beautiful but broken world of ours, there are only degrees of hurting, and degrees of healing. What is important is that we recognise when our inner child calls to us for healing, and that we respond.

And that’s where the challenge lies for many of us. We’re so well-conditioned to rationalise our childhood experiences, to suppress our negative emotions, that even when Spirit lovingly reveals to some of my clients that they have inner-child issues to deal with, they resist.

“Oh, that can’t be me. I’m strong now.”
“That was such a long time ago.”
“I’ve forgotten. It doesn’t matter anymore.”

Healing can only begin when we see and recognise the wounds. Here are seven signs of a wounded inner child that I’ve noted, both from my own personal experience as well as my professional encounters with close to a thousand clients. You may or may not find that these signs resonate with what you’re going through. There’s no “one-size-fits-all” definition for this, but you might find this list useful. Here we go:

1. Playing roles + wearing masks to hide your true Self.
Do you find that you’re a very different person around different people, almost as if you were playing roles to please other people, get the job done, meet your own objectives etc? And that if you were asked to strip away all those roles you play and masks you put on to get through the day, you might not know who lies beneath that elaborate masquerade? This is frequently a response to parental or familial pressure for us to live, look or behave a certain way in order to gain approval. For instance, many closeted LGBT people I meet (especially those from conservative or religious family backgrounds) struggle with this.

2. Weariness.
I’m not talking about the usual tiredness or stress from work or life’s issues. I’m talking about a deep, deep weariness in your soul that just won’t go away no matter what you try. It’s an exhausting task to keep those masks on. And even if you don’t feel that you’re wearing a mask and you are living a life that’s true to your real Self, remember that an untreated wound can still drain your life energy. With this weariness frequently comes a chronic boredom – you can’t muster any strong sense of purpose or passion for life, and deep down you suspect sometimes that you’re just drifting listlessly with the tide.

3. An unstable approach to guilt and shame.
Just to clarify: guilt is a response to what you’ve done: I did something wrong. Shame is a response to who you are: Something is wrong with me. People whose inner children are severely wounded cannot draw a clear line between guilt and shame. It’s all black-and-white for them. When something negative happens, they either take on all the blame and condemn themselves in the process (a client once told me, to my horror, Yes it’s my fault for [a minor mistake she made at work], I’m s**t and I have a talent for f**king up!), or they reject responsibility completely because their inner child is terrified of being blamed and possibly punished: enter the finger-pointing and mud-slinging. Wounded inner children tend to over-react and “take it personally” when things go wrong, and find it difficult to separate people from issues when solving a dispute.

4. Stuck in a time warp of excessive worrying.
Wounded inner children have lost all sense of time because their attention is focused almost entirely on their wounds. To them, the next catastrophe is just around the corner, and as children, they feel powerless to stop it. Never mind if they’re already adults, their lives are going well and the feared crisis doesn’t happen. The wounded inner child cannot differentiate perception from reality, and therefore can never be at peace. It goes without saying that the wounded inner child never truly lives in the present, but is either fretting about something that happened in the past or anxious about what might happen in the future – or, frequently, both.

5. Inability to trust and/or discern who can be trusted.
Another characteristic of people with wounded inner children is that their relationship networks are inadequate. Either they don’t have friends, their friendships are superficial, or they’re surrounded by frenemies – people who can’t actually be trusted and don’t have their interests at heart. Wounded inner children frequently find themselves also stuck in co-dependent romantic relationships (or disturbingly intense “friendships”) which are not grounded in respectful, loving give-and-take, but rooted in an overwhelming fear of loneliness and a tendency to become overly attached. It’s extremely common, by the way.

6. Distorted perceptions of reality.
Life feels like one long thunderstorm with occasional bursts of sunshine. You live for those moments of peace and happiness; once those precious moments are threatened, you plunge straight into the depths again. I once spoke with a beautiful young woman who needed reassurance about her new love relationship. During our conversation, she become highly emotional and began weeping, saying things like I knew it, I knew this was too good to be true, my boyfriend is leaving me, I wish I could just go to sleep and never wake up… I was alarmed to hear that. When I asked what had happened, she told me that her boyfriend had a severe migraine once and had to go home early from a date. That was enough to convince her that her relationship was over and she had no reason to live! (By the way, I know the boyfriend personally. He loves her to bits and wants to marry her.) Sounds crazy? Perhaps, but anyone would go “crazy” from the pain if their inner children were wounded for so long and never had the chance to heal.

7. Difficulty connecting with oneself, others, Spirit or the Universe.
As I mentioned earlier, wounded inner children cannot focus on anything else other than their pain. Whether consciously or unconsciously, their efforts are spent almost entirely on trying to heal, suppress, or rationalise their hurt feelings. Consequently, it’s hard for them to know what they’re really feeling, to empathise with other people, or to connect with a Higher Power. It’s hard to believe that Spirit and the Universe love you when you can’t even love yourself, after all. By the way, this applies even to spiritual people and light workers. I’ve found that sometimes, the hardest nuts to crack (to put it bluntly) are the people who have psychic gifts and who may even be practitioners. They inevitably hit a roadblock in their spiritual development and wonder why they’re not going anywhere, no matter what they do.

*          *          *

Now let’s be clear: many of these points can also be explained with other reasons such as intense stress, personality quirks etc. But if many of these points are resonating with you, perhaps it’s time to take a step back and ask yourself if something’s up with your inner child. Last week, I spoke about the importance of being honest with ourselves. I’d like to add that it’s also crucial to be kind to ourselves; maybe that’s our homework for this week, haha! 😀

And next week, I’ll be talking about ways to heal the inner child.

Always remember (even if you’re not feeling it) that you are loved and not alone. This is a broken but beautiful world. Nothing is impossible, and your inner child can be healed. The Universe is kind, and Spirit loves you! Only believe! <3

Bless,
Kelly

Weekend Spirit Message, 21-23 Oct 2016: Even in darkness, starlight.

This Saturday, we make the official switch from Libra to Scorpio season. Universal energies shift their focus from harmony, balance and peace-keeping to a more introspective mood that lasts till 21 November. The Celestial Scorpion’s bullshit radar is on high alert, but there’s no need to jump into fight mode – put your stings and tails away and save them for real emergencies, people!

What’s likely to happen (starting from this weekend) is that as you enter a season of soul-searching, you might learn things about yourself and/or the people and situations around you that make you uncomfortable.

The truth is that no one is all Light or all dark. We are all a mix of white and black and grey and all the colours of the rainbow. So don’t condemn yourself or others when you find out something you didn’t want to know. Face your darkness bravely – it has always been there, and knowing that it’s there doesn’t change a thing – and don’t be afraid.

What matters is what you do with the darkness you find, within and/or around you.

What choices will you make? Are you finally going to get treatment for your depression or eating disorder? Do you honestly think your married lover is going to leave his wife and kids for you, if he hasn’t done so after three years? Will you stop ignoring that terrible pain in your body and see a doctor, despite your terror at what you might hear?

What do you fear? That is your darkness, and the choices you make will either lead you step-by-step into a new dawn of hope, or plunge you further back into black. 

It’s Scorpio season. Universal energies will leave you unsatisfied with superficiality and lies. You’re ready – more ready than you know – to work through the darkness, to seek the truth, to take life by the hand and walk (maybe run or fly!) towards a brighter future.

Because even in the darkest night, the Universe is kind, and She is watching. Spirit is cheering you on and reaching out to you like stars in the night sky. You are never truly, fully alone or forsaken. There is always love, light, and a way.

If the Sun has set and there is no sunlight to guide you, you have the Moon. If the Moon is missing, even in darkness, you have starlight. And if you’re in a place where even the stars aren’t shining, honey, COME OUT OF THAT GRAVE YOU’VE DUG YOURSELF INTO.

Remember: Even in darkness, you have starlight. Be brave, and be blessed.
Have a wonderful weekend!

This Week’s Tarot, 17-23 Oct 2016

This week, Universal energies are seriously heating up as Libra season finally segues into Scorpio season on Saturday, 22 October. Libra’s harmonious energies don’t have to end – love and peace are always a choice we can make! – but Scorpio, being a fixed Water sign, is all about doing the inner work, delving deep into our souls to face our deepest hopes and fears. This sign is intense, mysterious, naturally drawn to mysticism and the esoteric arts.

This Week’s Tarot is all about doing the inner work of healing ourselves, first by being true to who we are and what we stand for. In order to do that, we must be honest about what faces we present to the world, and who we really are when no one’s looking. Here we go! 🙂

RIGHT: KING OF SWORDS. This is the first face many of us like to show the world: the cool person, the one who’s got his/her act together, the one who’s smart and capable… and always keeps his Sword up in defence against attacks to his ego. Notice this King’s Sword is held close to his face: this aspect of ourselves is all about saving face and, in the process, hiding a part of who we are from the rest of the world – even those who genuinely love and care for us.

Dear one, it is wise to keep parts of yourself private, but are you pushing away family, friends and loved ones in the process? Internally, you could be having a meltdown, but you’d rather stab yourself and die before you ever admit to vulnerability. Are you sure that’s such a good idea?

MIDDLE: QUEEN OF PENTACLES. This card represents our inner self, and the Queen of Pentacles is all about nurturing oneself and others. Like the REM song goes, “Everybody hurts, and sometimes, everybody cries”. The Queen of Pentacles in the inner self position suggests that we need to take care of this aspect of our being. More self-love and self-care is needed; stop feeling guilty and just take time off for a spa day!

Alternatively, it would enrich your soul to find a cause to care for as well. Volunteering to help the elderly, the handicapped, or abandoned pets would be a nice change from reflecting on your hectic life and wondering why it still feels so… empty.

RIGHT: KNIGHT OF RODS. Here’s the other face we show to the world. Notice that the facades we present to the world tend to be more masculine? It’s only natural: we feel the need to act tough to defend our inner Queen of Pentacles from being hurt by a world that can be unpredictable and even harsh. This Week’s Tarot calls for a balance between the masculine and feminine sides of ourselves, and while the Knight of Rods still tends to be more masculine than feminine, his message is for us to take hold of our passions and engage in exuberant, enthusiastic action to meet our goals.

In the Tarot Court, The Knights act in service of the Kings and Queens. Here, the King of Swords is looking away – he really doesn’t care for anything else except saving face – but the Queen of Pentacles is looking towards the Knight of Rods as if to say Go forth, and do my will.

Folks, it’s clear what This Week’s Tarot encourages us to do: commit to honesty, authenticity and healing our inner selves, stop obsessing over saving face, and take action to follow our hearts and live our best lives. Let’s get the fire back in our souls, everyone.

Also, please note: as we move from Libra into Scorpio season, we’re headed into the Libra-Scorpio cusp (a cusp is an in-between period between signs, roughly the last five days of one sign’s season and the first five days of the next). The free, happy-go-lucky Libra energies are evolving, becoming more intense and emotionally driven as we move into Scorpio. This, as well as aggressive Mars and furtive Pluto meeting in power-hungry Capricorn on Wednesday 19 October, indicates that energies are ripe for a power showdown. Egos may bloat, tempers may fly, everyone fights to win, and quoting a fabulous friend of mine, “Everyone’s just full of macho sh*t these days”.

How to deal? Easy, folks: ride the Libra-Scorpio cusp wave and CHILL. Focus on creating an enhanced version of your wonderful self, and don’t get sucked into senseless rivalries. You can do this!

And here’s a song that kinda suits the Libra-Scorpio mood this week. REM sings, “Everybody hurts (awww, sad Scorpio); take comfort in your friends (yeah Libra!). No, you’re not alone… Hold on.”

Have a great week ahead! 🙂

This Week’s Tarot, 10-16 Oct 2016

This week, Universal energies encourage confidence and self-expression. This being Libra season, though, be careful to strike a balance between flying your flag and blowing your horn – and letting others do the same.

This weekend will be interesting: on Saturday 15 October, the Sun in Libra faces Uranus in Aries directly. Uranus is the planet of unpredictability (if Uranus were a card in a Tarot spread, I’m sure it would be the ‘wild card’); the anti-establishment vibes of Uranus plus a full Moon in Aries on Sunday 16 October indicate the possibility of an exciting time! Let your passion push boundaries, but don’t tip the scales into recklessness. Have fun and play safe, all.

Let’s jump into This Week’s Tarot – here we go! 🙂

LEFT: THE SUN, REVERSED. The Sun is one of the warmest, happiest and most positive cards to get in the Tarot – even when reversed! Success is within reach once you balance your perspectives and emotions towards the task at hand. Upside down, The Sun issues a gentle reminder to guard against excessive pessimism or over-confidence. Your obstacles and challenges can and will be removed – chin up!

MIDDLE: TWO OF CUPS. This card is a happy harbinger of harmony in partnerships. It’s Libra season, after all, and Libra is the zodiac sign of relationships – with family, friends, loved ones, colleagues, even pets and acquaintances! Perhaps this card holds the key to unlock the success you’re promised in The (reversed) Sun. So don’t be a stranger, dear one. Reach out to others if you need assistance, and/or extend a helping hand to someone who needs it. You’ll be glad you did.

RIGHT: TWO OF PENTACLES, REVERSED. The Two of Pentacles reversed can indicate that you’re struggling to manage your priorities and commitments. There’s an element of stress here, but it can be overcome with some tweaks to your time management, budgeting methods, etc. It could be as simple as learning to say ‘no’, for instance, and drawing boundaries as to how far you’re willing to work overtime at the expense of quality time with loved ones.

This Week’s Tarot has two Twos in it, and the message is clear, folks: this week, don’t be a loner. It’s okay to work and play with others, and it’s definitely okay to ask for help whenever you need. I’ll leave you with a beautiful quote about the power of partnerships, from a book I read sometimes:

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labour:

If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.

But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.

Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?

Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12a

Have a great week ahead! 🙂
