Colour Focus for the Week Ahead - #13

Lighten up.

For those of you in new relationships, don't strive for True Romance too quickly. Just enjoy it right now and have fun.
Giving yourself permission to do the things you enjoy and to be happy is an easy self-love option.

In Tarot, 17 is The Star, which represents hope, healing and assistance.

Speaking of having fun, I'm going to be away on holiday for a fortnight, ⛺ so no Colour Focus next week. And with little or no internet access, not much contact of any kind. Missing you already!

Colour Focus for the Week Ahead - #12

Believe in You

Your confidence may have taken a knock but it's temporary. You are competent and capable, and you have inner reserves of strength you can draw upon to fight back and to protect your spirit going forward.

Sunstone (pictured) is widely recommended for enhancing confidence.

Echinacea is believed to boost the immune system and reduce infection.

Well, I've done it now

I listened to my own advice and took the first step towards being an actual Card Reader™, not just an enthusiastic hobbyist. I've inveigled myself πŸ˜‰ into two free card reading groups.

Yeah, I know. Free readings. But hey, it's a start.

I have worked in free reading groups before, but they were generally thousands of members deep and tended on the whole to be a bit too 'Love and Light' for my taste.

These new groups are quite small and offer straight-up "Get yer cards read here", so I'm hoping to avoid the mad free-for-all (pardon the pun) of the big "psychic circuses".

No, I'm not going to say what or where they are. The purpose of this post isn't to promote myself (maybe later). It's just a bloggy share 'coz I'm quite excited about my baby-steps progress. 😁

Colour Focus for the Week Ahead - #11

Take that first step.

Nothing will come of your desires if you dither and hold back.
Wake up and smell the coffee (or the mint tea).
Just do it.

In Tarot, 10 is the number of the Wheel of Fortune. You can’t sit still if you want to change your fortune.

Mint draws things to it, attracts things - attention, money, blessings…

A post shared by Judy K (@weirdeye) on

I promised this deck I would always keep it with me (because reasons), so it lives in my handbag. But today I briefly considered taking it out of my bag to make room for another deck. Naturally, I asked for its reaction -
"Happiness destroyed, left out in the cold."
Okay, okay, you'll stay.
[turned deck over to see postscript] - Wish fulfilled.

This is why I read cards.

Colour Focus for the Week Ahead - #10

Fire and Water

Find that one thing that you’re good at, that excites you, that you dream of achieving… and do it. The success is in the doing.
However *you* define success, follow the inspiration of other “successful” people.
Keep a passionate heart and a cool head.

Blue is the colour of the throat, the voice, communication.

Neptune is the planet of dreams, and yes, illusions, but also inspiration.

And on this unbearably hot day (unrelenting sun and no rain for weeks! Yes, that is my lawn) the Ruler of the Oceans is a welcome counterpoint to Scarlet’s fire-storm.

I needed a healthy splash of Florida Water just to get through this reading today. I hope it’s more comfortable where you are.

The Frustrated Fortune Teller

Tarot challenges.
Instagram, YouTube, Facebook…

Every time a new one comes along I get all excited and think, “Yay, another reason to play with my lovely cards. Let’s do this!”

And about three days in I’m like, “Judy, how many times? πŸ™„ You know you don’t get on with these challenges.”

The problem is, I don’t like reading cards without a reason.

Prompts or no prompts, it amounts to the same thing. I’m either pulling cards just to see what shows up, or I’m tackling prompts that most of the time I’m not invested in. And if I were, I wouldn’t necessarily want to be sharing the results with all and sundry.

This is why I don’t do daily draws either. They’re just too vague. There’s no “Need” involved. (Check out Balthazar's video - NEED is The Fuel for The Engine of Divination)

And yes, this does extend to my weekly Colour Focus readings. I work through my discomfort by reminding myself that I’m doing these readings for others; that my intention is to get a message meant for someone out there.

Here I am, surrounded by enough cards to choke a small herd of horses, and I’ve got no one to read for and only rarely do I have anything I want to read on for myself. It’s nuts!

And so I gravitate towards the challenges because mucking about with my cards is better than not using them at all, right? Mmm, not so much. It just ends up feeling empty and slightly exhibitionist.

I really need to find a way to read for other people.

My recent freebie offer was as much a toe-dipping exercise as it was a way of finding out if anyone’s listening.

The problem with free readings is that very often people are attracted more to the “free” than the “reading”. They don’t really have a need either. They’re just taking advantage of getting something for nothing. Who wouldn’t?

So I’d like to charge a small fee. If someone’s willing to part with a couple of quid, they’re more likely to have a real question they’d appreciate an answer to.

Of course, all this would have to be online, via email or snail mail - Hello! πŸ‘‹ Dyed-in-the-wool introvert here, with strong reclusive tendencies.

That said, I’ve been kicking this idea around for about a year and still I have no idea where to start. I suppose the motivation for this post was to get my thoughts down in writing to see if that might get the ball rolling.

Card reading is fun. Having loads of different decks at my disposal is fun! I’m not about to stop working with them any time soon. But I know I could be doing something useful and it seems such a waste to just be mucking about.
