3 Card Spread - Mind, Body, Spirit
Mind: 2 The Seer: The time has come to focus your power and let it flow through you. Many dreams or desires related to the creative emotional process are ready to be applied in your day-to-day life and you must now give vent to those hidden or suppressed longings. This may also relate to healing, sexual relationships or partnerships. Now the manifestation of inner spiritual or esoteric insights into your practical and physical daily life will bring profound rewards and results. It is a sign of maturity. The Seer also relates to creative impulses such as art, mechanical skills and crafts, and the joy of bringing pleasure and knowledge to others.
Body : 15 The Guardian: A challenge has arrived in your life. The situation may be very complex. It may even have profound implications for your life and how you deal with the world. It may manifest itself in the form of a profound inner realignment or the facing of some physical outer predicament. Whether from the labyrinth that is the human mind or from some external source, the challenge that presents itself now must be seen for what it is: an opportunity. If something has been hidden or repressed, if a situation has been left to decay or become unhealthy, now is the time to take control of your fears and deal with the insecurity with courage and integrity.
Spirit: 7 The Archer: The dawn of a new adventure, folded in the web of universal potential, waits for you to string the bow of your imagination and loose the arrows of creativity. This is a time to be bold and commit to the hunting of a new life and a better relationship with the world, as well as the fulfillment of wholesome ambition. Take a moment to gather your tools and steady your state of mind. Take careful stock of what you want to achieve, why, and how we will go about it. Then harness your potential by filling your quiver with all the talents, knowledge and cunning you possess and string the "bow of burning gold" with the "arrows of desire". Take a deep breath and be calm. It is time to let your soul take flight.
Totem for the Week:

26 Squirrel: If squirrel has scurried into your cards today, it may mean that you are being told to honor your future by readying yourself for change. The message could be to lighten your load if you have gathered too many "things" that do not serve you. These "things" can include thoughts, worries, pressures, stresses or gadgets that have been broken for years.

37 Tobaira of the Waters: Emotions. Serenity. Meditation. Gracefully accepting change. Water is mutable, changeable, fluid and Tobaira speaks to us of a particular kind of change - change of emotions and possibly a change in health. We have important choices to make about how we meet those changes and where we let them take us - toward the calm, flowing purity of the faery waters or the boiling cauldronof hot temper and steamy emotions. The choice is obvious, but we sometimes forget that we have it. Tobaira reminds us that we do have a choice - and making it, wisely or unwisely, determines our future.
The things we need in life remain constant, no matter what is going on or how hectic the changes and pressures in our life may be. WE need nurturing and love, and it is ultimately up to us to provide that for ourselves. The healing faeries will help us if we ask them to.
