Let’s look at the energy in the cards for this week


Fire consumes, it is destructive. In the forest it removes underbrush, old trees and all that is dead. There is chaos and danger when fire is burning.

Fire is also creative. New plants and trees grow where the old and dead have been consumed. There is order and growth when new things grow.

Fire is your passions. What do you enjoy, what gives you energy, what draws out the energy within you? When I was a scuba diver, what I did during the working day had no relevance to what I did in the evening or weekend as a diver. The passion of fire is the answer to the question, what do you enjoy, not what do you do

Fire is warmth when the sun goes down. But, beware of too much warmth. There is a point where it burns and is painful. To fully step into the energy of fire is to be utterly transformed, like the Phoenix rising from the ashes.

The fire that burns inside us can make us reactive and short-tempered toward others and situations. Fiery emotions directed at others, whether they are family, friends or colleagues can burn you when those who feel your fiery ager, have their turn, and breathe fire on you. 

Remember, do unto others as you would do unto yourself.


Stand still represents a pause. Now is the time to pause in what you are doing. Take a breath and relax. When things stall, or stagnate, or when you feel stuck, this energy appears as a reminder that constant action isn’t going to get you where you want to go. Perhaps it’s time to gather more information or just wait until the universe makes the next move. 

Now is the time to recharge. Read that book you have wanted to but not found time to because of all the action you have created or experienced. Go out and play at something you enjoy. Recognise that Standstill is not inaction. It is just a different form of action that will give you the energy for what is to come.

Many Paths

Your Life path lays in front of you. What you bring to your journey is what will determine if yours is a path of suffering, a path of wisdom, a path of bliss, or a path of loss. 

Consider a traveler who met two stonemasons. He asks the first what he is doing, and the mason replies, “I am squaring out this stone.” He asks the second stonemason who is doing the exact same thing, and gets the reply, “I am building a cathedral.”

One has a job; the other has found his calling. He is part of an endeavor much greater than himself. Be sure you pick a path with your heart. That is your life path purpose.

That life path is calling you to take a big, bold step and leave the beaten path. The Universe are supporting your move. Now is not the time to delay, delay may cause you to miss the moment! You have outgrown your current situation and risk losing your way if you do not take this opportunity.

Be sure you attend to both your path through this earth, as well as your journey through the stars.
