The Seven Day Show: A Reading

Today's reading uses the Cirque du Tarot by Leeze Robertson, Illustrated by Josh Tufts, and published by Llewellyn. The spread  -- called "The Seven Day Show" -- is from the guidebook that comes with that deck.

Intended to reveal the upcoming week "at a glance," this spread uses one card for each day of the week. Leeze Robertson points on that it is helpful to look for cards that present challenges first (so you can plan for them), then cards that show big bursts of energy (with the potential to interrupt our day). Finally, the mundane cards are likely to indicate the most productive days.

Let's see what's in store for me!


The Knight of Wands brings lots of energy to my Monday, energy that I will need to use wisely and well. I may feel overwhelmed at some point, and I may need to get out and get away for a few minutes to regroup.

(2) Tuesday: THE DEVIL

Tuesday, I may find myself dealing with the idea of power – as in where does my power lie? Am I giving my power to someone or something else? Who is pulling the strings?

(3) Wednesday: SIX OF SWORDS

The opportunity for a journey or forward movement of some kind is indicated for Wednesday. A chance for growth is possible, but perhaps only if I can move out of my comfort zone.


Feelings of contentment and security are likely on Thursday as I become aware of how my hard work is finally paying dividends. Perhaps I will receive a welcome boost to my self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.


Teamwork is highlighted on Friday, and I have an opportunity to reach out to others to manifest a dream. Or perhaps someone will be reaching out to me to join forces.

(6) Saturday: STRENGTH

Mutual trust and respect create conditions in which I can support someone else or be lifted up by someone. The absence of power struggles is an important key to achieving balance and success. 

(7) Sunday: ACE OF SWORDS

Although it’s the end of the week, the Ace of Swords indicates new ideas or flashes of inspiration that can point me in a new direction based on new thinking or a change in mindset. 

It will be interesting to see how the week unfolds!

A Reading with Nature's Wisdom Oracle

Nature’s Wisdom Oracle
by Mindy Lighthipe

(1) Message from the Universe: DAFFODIL (Sincerity)

My message from the Universe comes from the Daffodil, a lovely yellow flower that heralds the beginning of Spring where I live. Among other fascinating facts provided by the guidebook that comes with Nature’s Wisdom Oracle, we learn that “The name daffodil is derived from the Dutch word affodyle and means ‘that which cometh early.’ By sending the Daffodil, the Universe is reminding me to be sincere, truthful, and honest in all that I do. I get a sense also that I have an opportunity to start a new "season" in my life, a fresh approach to some area (although the literal season coming up is autumn).

(2) What I need to release: HUMMINGBIRD (Energy)

It’s easy to see why Mindy Lighthope chose “energy” as the keyword for the Hummingbird. They are amazing to watch as they fly forward, backward, up, down, and sideways, and hover in midair. Bursts of energy are useful, but in this reading, the Hummingbird is telling me “What I need to release.” Perhaps this is a message to let go of or release any tendency I have to move too fast or to use all my energy at once, which can lead to burnout.

(3) What I need to focus on: PRAYING MANTIS (Danger)

Meanwhile, the Praying Mantis is advising me to focus on “Danger.” Something I’m doing or the direction I’m heading in could very well take me into a difficult, hazardous situation. Lighthope tells us that the word “mantis” means “prophet.” This creature is known for ambushing its prey and devouring it alive – I would be wise to be careful and cautious to avoid becoming a victim.
