The hand in the Ace of Wands provides this energy of the universe working on your behalf and aligning in your favor. However, showing up in reverse it is signaling you to energy that is blocked or stagnant. Today you might be feeling creatively blocked. You missed that deadline. There is a delay because you are filled with self-doubt, and this self-doubt is not only blocking your blessings its blocking the abundance that is trying to make its way to you. How can you call back your power, your energy and your motivation? Its time you remember who you are and why you were chosen to walk this specific path. It’s time to tap into your enthusiasm for the project that you once had and find your light! Or find a new job! Decidete!!!

Meditation on Money/Career: Yes, you are experiencing a temporary setback and perhaps a lack of motivation. Chill! Make no sudden moves. Reflect. Take inventory. Take a step back to find fresh inspiration and address any creative blocks you are currently experiencing. It is time to move forward.

Meditation on Relationships: In your relationship you might be feeling like its passionless. You aren’t happy or satisfied. How can you rekindle what was once so exciting? Tell your partner the truth. This message isn’t solely for romantic partnerships, this is also relationships with family members and co-workers—you may not be feeling them right now! How can you light that spark? Maybe plan a date, a movie, a dinner, a picnic—grown folks time!

Meditation on Spirituality/Health: There might be some resistance right now. There is something hindering your spiritual growth. If the old ways aren’t working for you—pick up new tools and practices. Find your way through this. Find your way back to source. Find your way back to self.



The Five of Sword represents conflicts and power struggles. You are being encouraged to choose your battles wisely and avoid winning at the expense of others' feelings. Watch your tone! It’s all about your delivery. Don’t say you’re saying it “with love” but really it’s coming off condescending AF! Is the point to win the battle at all costs? Or will you be satisfied with stating your position and accepting that you don’t need to change anyone’s mind? Can you walk away? Can you let it go? Can you breathe through it and move the fck on?

Meditation on Money/Career: Caution in your career dealings. Avoid aggressive or confrontational approaches. How can you strive for win-win solutions? You are being urged to consider the long-term impact of your actions in your professional relationships. Read the contract! FULLY! Don’t skim!

Meditation on Relationships: This power struggle is in every aspect of your life: home, work, the streets… this week put some honey on your tongue (often) carry that sh*t in your bag if you need to. The focus this week is on open communication and compromise, whether in romantic partnerships or other interpersonal connections.

Meditation on Spirituality/Health: How can you connect to inner peace? How can you walk with a peace mindset? How can you accept what is? The Five of Swords signifies the importance of inner conflict resolution. It encourages you to examine and release any negative thought patterns, judgments, or emotional burdens that may be holding you back on your spiritual path.



The King of Pentacles represents wealth, stability, confidence, however, reversed its giving…. financial instability and a lack of authority. You’re not confident in you, your gifts or ability to get “it” done—for whatever reason. Why are you are doubting yourself? Why aren’t you trusting what you came here to do? Why can’t you keep your word? Why won’t you commit? How are you managing your money? How’s your spending? Are you living beyond your means? This week you will benefit from looking at the big picture: What’s coming in? What’s going out? Can you put aside 20% weekly or bi-weekly towards savings? The moment you begin to prioritize and order your life (with a focus on your money) the universe will rise to match you.

Meditation on Money/Career: You are mismanaging your money and it’s giving… irresponsibly. It’s time to reassess your financial decisions and take a more practical approach. How can you regain control and stability in your finances?

Meditation on Relationships: Because money is a major theme this week, there are more losses than wins this week! Many a relationship has ended because of money. There is some stress this week around money and its affecting everyone. Be mindful of how financial issues impact your partnerships, and seek practical solutions to maintain stability and harmony in your connections. Talk about money. Talk about your fears around money. Do you share similar values when it comes to money? This is important. Learn yourself… figure out your thoughts around money and what the goal is.

Meditation on Spirituality/Health: There is a spiritual relationship to money that is lacking. Money is energy. You attract what you believe you are. You attract what you believe you are worth. You attract what you believe you deserve! Can you be practical? The message this week is that you can’t live in the clouds. Scarcity mindset is this belief that there isn’t enough for everyone. And also, that you don’t believe you are worthy. This mindset is affecting your spiritual journey. You are invited this week to find a balance between your material and spiritual pursuits, and to ground your spiritual practices.



Finally, the universe is taking their foot off of your neck!!! You are in a beautiful season right now and what a wonderful month for growth--October! You are healing. You are slowly recovering from emotional pain or heartbreak. People have shown you who they are and now you see them clearly. Now you can breathe because you finally know what to do. You are finally choosing you. You are moving towards reconciliation.

Meditation on Money/Career: You are healing from past financial or professional wounds. It's a positive sign that you are on the path to recovery. Use this time to rebuild your financial and career confidence. Mind on your money!

Meditation on Relationships: You have made amends. You have communicated your needs and heard your partners wants. You have let go of what needed to go! This is a positive message that all parties are putting in the work. Keep loving one another. Keep listening. Keep being honest. Forgive. But mostly be patient, lift and nurture one another.

Meditation on Spirituality/Health: This is a sign that you are moving away from past spiritual wounds and towards a place of inner peace and wholeness. Embrace this time of emotional recovery.



Money has been THE theme this week and October is harvest season. All the work you have been putting in will bring tremendous payoff for you this week. Today is a good day to apply for that new opportunity. Today is the day to embrace change and transformation. Today is a good day call forth everything you need for this next chapter of your life. This card represents new financial opportunities, stability, and prosperity. It's a promising sign of potential abundance or a new job offer.

Meditation on Money/Career: You heard the messages loud and clear and now you are moving accordingly. You have forecasted your spending for the rest of 2023, you know what is coming in and going out—you are pleasantly surprised because now you can see that you actually have some money left over to do something you love. This card is all about financial stability, and prosperity. Be open to new job offers, investments, or financial endeavors that may lead to abundance.

Meditation on Relationships: In terms of your partnership, business or romantic, this is a favorable card for relationships, indicating a strong foundation, stability, and potential for growth. It's a good time to invest in your relationships, whether with a partner, family members, or children, and enjoy the abundance of love and support.

Meditation on Spirituality/Health: The Ace of Pentacles represents a fertile ground for spiritual growth. It suggests that there are new opportunities for spiritual abundance and material harmony. Use this time to ground your spiritual practices and integrate what you have learned—there is huge payoff in committing to your spiritual practice.



The Tower card depicts a tall tower struck by lightning, often with people falling from it. COME THROUGH TOWER!!!!! Let’s tear this sh*t all the way down! So we can begin again! The Tower energy represents sudden, unexpected upheaval or changes in various aspects of life. Sh*t just got real! You said you wanted this new life. You said you were ready to change and now the universe is saying, “Let’s see how serious they are! Let’s see if they learned the lessons! Let’s see if they are in fact ready!” The Tower burns it all the way down to the ground, this can sometimes translate to a painful spiritual awakening or transformation. Embrace change, as it leads to growth. You’re fcking ready! You cannot build a new house with your old tools!

Meditation on Money/Career: There is a reason we have been led to think about money this week, with The Tower card it’s all about something happening unexpectedly, quick changes… you won’t see it coming. Life can be turned upside down. There is nothing worse than something happening to someone in your family and you not having the money to provide support or get to them in time. When opportunity comes up will you be ready? If you can’t manage $1,000 dollars, how will you manage $1,000,000? The truth is The Tower card may not be the message you want to hear this week but it is definitely the message you need to hear. You are being reminded to “STAY READY,” get ready for the transformation that’s surely coming.

Meditation on Relationships: This could be the end of a relationship you once valued. Something has run its course. While endings can be painful, and this moment in your life might be challenging, the energy of The Tower is leading you towards necessary transformations in the dynamics of your partnerships. Be open to adapting and communicating during periods of change.

Meditation on Spirituality/Health: You are being encouraged to embrace change as a catalyst for spiritual awakening and growth. Sometimes, disruptions are necessary for your spiritual evolution.



Rough seas ahead! A storm is coming! But the truth is the storm is only coming because you are refusing to make a move, you are resisting change, you are the reason your life is what it is right now. The Six of Swords is a powerful message for us as we close this week, all of the cards in this reading have been up and down, ebbs and flows, but isn’t life just like this? This shouldn’t surprise us. Things end. The invitation this week is to surrender resistance, leaving behind old, negative patterns. How can you transition to a more peaceful state? The Six of Swords encourages you to work through these challenges to find a path toward healing and forward movement.

Meditation on Money/Career: Reflect on what is holding you back and consider the benefits of moving towards a more peaceful and fulfilling professional path. Reflect on your relationship to money and who your earliest teachers were. Maybe it’s time to teach yourself a new skill. Lean into the discomfort.

Meditation on Relationships: Why do you keep holding on to people that are no good for you? Just downright nasty people? This is complete resistance to leaving behind old relationship patterns or situations that are no longer healthy. Whether in partnerships with adults or children, reflect on what needs improvement and consider the benefits of moving toward more peaceful and harmonious connections.

Meditation on Spirituality/Health: Even in the spiritual, the old beliefs are not serving you. The reversed Six of Swords indicates resistance to leaving behind old spiritual patterns or beliefs that do not align with who you are. It is time to move towards a more peaceful and spiritually fulfilling practice/state. The message is to work through these challenges to find a path toward healing and spiritual progress. One that feels good to YOU!
