Welcome to December and the final month of 2020.
Whatever you’ve been facing, I hope the messages found here have helped guide your way. Remember, the cards are a tool to connect with your inner wisdom. For some people, they are direct messages from the divine. For others, simply a reminder of what is top of mind and needs attention.
Wherever you land on the spectrum, here is another week of energies to help light your path.
Today is a 2-card spread meant to be read as a whole message, one that informs whatever question you’ve asked. I’m working with the classic Rider-Waite deck and an oracle animal card for a unifying theme.
From left to right, piles 1-3.
Which pile draws you in the most?
What is something you’re seeking guidance on right now? If nothing comes to mind, try, “What do I most need to hear right now?”
Breath. Listen. Feel. Then choose.
The crystals & stones:
1-Raw Quartz: amplifies any energy or intention✨all chakras
2-Rose Quartz: heart opening, soothing, fosters empathy & forgiveness✨heart chakra
3- Orange Calcite: creativity, helps with low energy✨sacral chakra

Oracle: The Hawk
Tarot: Page of Cups reversed
These two are working together to share a strong message: stop doubting yourself or where you’re headed. You have it in you. You can do this.
It feels like folks in this group are getting in their own way.
Perhaps professionally or in personal relationships. Whatever feels right for you, know that there are great things waiting for you. The Hawk has a clear vision for great distances, and this can translate to the future, too.
Listen to your ideas. This is a time to allow your creativity to shine. Journal, journal, journal. Let all of your thoughts and ideas about the future or the things you desire flow.
Intention for the week: I trust what my path holds and trust my creative power to help me.
Oracle: The Elk
Tarot: Five of Cups reversed
The Elk is here to remind you of your inner strength and the power you have to survive, learn, and grow. But the tarot’s message is strong, too: You must forgive yourself and let go of what you’re holding onto.
It is okay if you’ve failed, but this doesn’t mean you’re meant to stop.
This is a powerful message to look within and truly find peace with what has happened on your path that isn’t easy. It’s also here to remind you that moving on is the way forward, and is the way you survive.
The Elk brings optimism. A reminder that we gain so much when we offer ourselves a little bit of grace.
Intention for the week: I release what isn’t serving me and give myself grace where I’m hurting so I can heal.
Oracle: The Fox
Tarot: Three of Swords reversed
You are being called to recognize places in your life where you’re not being kind to yourself. This is most often a form of negative self-talk. It can also be poor habits, overwork, or lashing out.
Fox’s energy is playful, clever, and resourceful. It reminds you that you are surrounded by resources, even if they’re not obvious. This is a time to listen to your instincts.
You know better than anyone where you’re hurting most and where you need to direct the resources at your disposal. This might be the simple and free resource of a few deep breaths or a larger plan to seek guidance from an expert in an area where you’re struggling.
Intention for the week: I am worthy of peace and will recognize ways I can show more love for myself.
