Hello everyone!! So glad you could join in on this week's free, collective card reading!
How collective readings work: Because we live in a Law of Attraction based universe, we can only experience people, places, things, & experiences that we are a perfect vibrational match to. This means that if you've found your way here, then there is absolutely a message for you that applies to your life in some way.
How to do it: Look below at the photo of this week's cards, and think about your intention for this reading. Perhaps you will have a particular question or circumstance in mind that the reading can provide insight into, or maybe you just need a general message! Once you've determined the card(s) of your choice, continue reading this post to reveal the cards & meanings.

Card #1 - Security
If you have drawn this card upright, now is -not- the time to face your fears. This is the time to send yourself the message, "I care too much about you to deny you the feeling of safety." You deserve to feel a sense of surety in your safety and/or stability. You deserve to experience an emotional state free from loss, fear, danger and risk. What do you need in order to feel more secure? What do you need in order to feel safer? Do those things for yourself now. They may be things as big as ending a relationship or they may be things as small as taking a bubble bath. It is not a crime to soothe yourself. It is not self loving to be living in a perpetual state of fear.
Card #2 - Kindred Soul
If you have drawn this card upright, you are in the process of coming together in space and time with your soul's counterpoint. If you are not currently in a relationship, this suggests that very soon, you will be. If you are in a relationship, this could mean that you are about to find greater connection with your partner or that your partner may be replaced by someone who is even more of a match to you. Though this card almost always suggests the presence of a romantic partnership, our kindred soul may not come in the form of a romantic partner. They may come from the most unexpected places.
Card #3 - New Beginnings (reversed)
If you have drawn this card in reverse, your creative energies are being restricted and contained. You are inhibiting them. Because of this, you probably feel like you're in a tailspin. You may be feeling exhausted or depleted. Inspiration is not flowing and you have very little energy to channel into anything new. You might be feeling very challenged because you do not have an avenue to express your true thoughts and feelings, and you are obliged to bottle a lot of it up inside. The inner artist is either suppressed or exhausted. Ask yourself, why am I not being creative? And explore the answers you receive. Things tend to go in cycles. If you are in a cycle where you have no new energy to put forward, now is not the time to create, it is a time of rest. Take time off. Do nothing. Do nothing for long enough that you start to feel the inspiration to do something. Don't start up again where you left off; doing the things you keep telling yourself you have to do, start off doing the things that you want to do. Don't hold yourself or your creations back. Practice the art of expression in all it's various forms.
