Yeah, that’s right…July 28th. Holy time warp, Batman! I mean, is it just me or does the fact that we’re coming to the end of July seem a bit nuts! When I started seeing commercials for school supplies on TV last week I had to do a double take. But here we are, past the midsummer point, and ready to head into the hot and heady summer time. Let’s see what this week has in store using the Wisdom of Avalon oracle deck by Colette Baron-Reid.
This is really interesting deck that has a bunch of different types of cards, almost like suits in the tarot. In this week’s reading we have three of the same type of cards – all of them are Sacred Journey Markers, cards that show you where to do and actions to take on your path. Last week’s reading showed that it was time to start making some solid movement as we saw Mercury Retrograde come to a close, and we see that again here. Mercury will be in the post-retrograde shadow until August 2nd, but now is the time to get things back on track.
With the start of the week we see the Truth marker. What have you been holding back on letting out as your truth? Are you feeling out of touch with your truth? What I’m really being given by my guides here is a need to focus more on clarity for yourself when it comes to what’s true for you. A lot of the time we’re so worried about making sure that other people understand our truth, but here the spirits are saying “Hey! Do YOU know what’s true for you?”
The Truth marker is asking that you get on the path of your truth. If you don’t know what path that is, it’s time to start actively figuring that out. For many of us the bigger problem is with finding our truth and then having the confidence to follow it, especially if it takes us off the commonly tread path.
Here are 5 journal questions you can work with this week to help you get in alignment with your truth:[list type=”checkmark-dark”] [li]List three personal values that you feel are 110% non-negotiable for you. Why are they so important?[/li] [li]Think back to a time when you had to work through a really challenging situation and you came out of it on top. How did you do it? How did it feel when things worked out? What were your most powerful moments going through that situation? [/li] [li]If you were going to start a charity and time, money, and resources were not an obstacle, what would you charity be? Who would it serve, what would it do, and what would it be called?[/li] [li]What are you tolerating in your life right now? Why? How can you go from tolerating this to either doing away with it or enjoy it?[/li] [li]Where are you taking yourself too seriously right now? How can you bring more fun and joy into your life?[/li] [/list]
Mid-week we find the marker Death. My guides are really showing me some big transformational energy mid-week as a result of what happens early in the week. Find what it is that’s holding you back from living your truth and following your true path and know that it’s time to separate from it. This might not be something you can make a clean break from, so being the baby steps toward making change and letting go of whatever it is that has been keeping you from getting firmly on that path.
Remember, death doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but instead it can be a huge opportunity for growth and change to lead you to your big dreams!
And at the end of the week we have the marker of Protection. You are guided, guarded, and protected on your true path by Spirit! The thing about walking your truth and being aligned with your true path, whether it’s your life path or a path that’s just in the moment, is that it’s lined with protection because it’s guided by Spirit.
If you’re worried about walking your true path, worried that something bad might happen as a result of making these choices, know that if you’re really, truly working from a place of truth and authenticity, you’re on the right path and you’re safe. But, if you feel like you need a little added support, you can always call on Archangel Michael for guidance and protection while carrying smokey quartz or black tourmaline crystals to help keep you safe and grounded.
Summing it up…
Get movin’, kid! What is it that’s holding you back from living your truth? Start figuring out what it is and know that if you start to let go of the things you’ve been holding onto that aren’t in alignment with your truth, you’ll be on your way to a protected and Spirit driven life. It just takes one change, one shift in your life and your perception of things to move toward true alignment.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
