Archangel Raphael uses a variety of healing methods, including direct intervention, where he miraculously and instantly heals ailments; and guidance, where he directs the person toward the best avenues to health.
The Divine and Raphael choose the best avenues and methods for healing each particular condition. And there is a Divine order behind every situation, even if our human minds can’t completely comprehend the whys and hows
THE WEEK AHEAD (October 4-10)
Mostly, human free will is the catalyst and the culprit within each health situation. The angels can’t interfere with our freewill choices. They must wait until we freely ask for help before they can intervene. When you ask for help, don’t tell them how to go about it. That’s called “outlining,” and it blocks or slows the answer to your prayers. When you outline, you may overlook the answer because you’re focused on other expectations. Let the archangel lead the way with solutions that exceed human imagination and expectations.
20 MARCH – 20 APRIL
Many Ariens can look forward to a good week that will have relationships, a happy family environment and a harmonious interpersonal interaction with your most loved one. This augurs so well for the personal life most aspire for. This is reflected in the cards- the Wheel of Fortune, the Four of Wands and the Two of Cups. There is a synergy between aspirations and a life shorn of work- and work-related elements. The Wheel of Fortune also brings closure to things you have been looking and wanting materialistically. This could be delayed work, rewards and also attention and endorsement. The Four of Wands brings a time of harmony with family and loved ones who constitute your world and make it worthwhile to understand the mechanics of living. The Two of Cups shows there is a time for love and commitment and you will be giving attention to the spouse or partner.
20 APRIL – 21 MAY
The Empress in the three-card spread for Taureans shows the command and authority with which you are living right now. You are a symbol of leadership but also one that gives and nurtures. This applies to both men and women. When it comes to women, they will also be symbols of fertility bringing new things into the open and ensuring that life continues in the best possible manner. Symbolically it could also represent nature or Mother Earth and this expansive idea translates into individual lives. While that is so things are not that smooth with the Seven of Wands bringing with it stress and fire. The fire of wanting to do many things which put together will be almost impossible to do all at once in the current scenario. So take things one by one. The King of Wands brings relief to all this with support. This can come in any form — spiritually or physically which will go a long way.
21 MAY – 21 JUNE
Six of Swords indicates some kind of disillusionment on the part of partners when it comes to a happy union. This would apply more to men than women — here the woman in the equation will be feeling marginalised and not wanting to go through with anything at this point. On the other hand, this could also augur a certain acceptance of situations where the woman allows the man to steer the way ahead. She is not going to get involved in the proceedings though. This is also a time for introspection and accounting for actions till now. So the card, Judgment comes up to remind you that all actions have consequences, and this is something you will have to deal with this. Any amends to be made can be done with complete forgiveness for the self as well as those who have been affected by actions.
21 JUNE – 23 JULY
Even as you struggle under the weight of ambitions and all that you want to do there is a learning in all this. The High Priestess suggests that the phase you are going through right now is one of learning life lessons that are important for your growth. It might not seem that way but that is what is needed at this point to go where you need to go. The Hanged Man gives you a feeling of being pushed under the bus and you will not be in any mood to realize this or see the unravelling of life as per the life plan. This means that the usual ways of dealing with things are not likely to work so you will have to come up with ways that are out of the routine and find ways to be creative about solving issues bothering you. So the Ten of Wands shows this weight you carry around and feel its heaviness while you negotiate through all your plans.
23 JULY – 23 AUGUST
Restrictive and stressful is what you could be feeling in the coming days with the Eight of Swords coming up. This could mean that you are tying yourself up in knots over everything and this is making you feel like you are chained to events and people. You can let go and enjoy life just the way it is. Because all this comes about with overthinking and needlessly concentrating on the worst possible scenarios. Once you liberate yourself from that you will see that there is so much to celebrate. That is precisely what the Three of Cups shows where you could be having a good time if only you don’t take seemingly negative stuff going on around you. While this is so there is much to feel good about when it comes to the youngsters in the family who will be doing well at work and in their personal life.
23 AUGUST – 23 SEPTEMBER
For many of those born under this sign, it is a time when you feel either the absence or presence of a relationship working or not working for you. Usually, this is one of marriage/ girlfriend boyfriend/ partners or any other committed relationships when you will find yourself questioning where you could be heading with them. The Lovers Card shows this aspect, and this comes as a reminder that this is such an important aspect of life that it could determine what other elements will be like with and without this. This brings us to the card death which echoes and reflects what The Lovers card stands for where changes are likely in the nature of such relationships. These changes are somewhat life-altering- as represented by the card, Death. The Page of Swords brings to the fore youngsters who will bring fresh energies to your life.
23 SEPTEMBER – 23 OCTOBER
There is a great accent on money and finances this week as you go forward with increased prosperity and abundance – Ten of Pentacles — there will be plenty of it flowing in and while this can make you feel secure and happy it can also bring stress because when this happens the performance rigours also set in. You will be expected to jump when those you work with and for demand. So here is where you will be required to utilise all your powers of reasoning and strength to deal with it. Strength also indicates that you will need to be confident and believe in yourself and talents and carry forward with poise and confidence. And not be undermined by comments. There will also be an expansive mood of wanting to do good for others and a lot of charitable activities could be in your mind.
23 OCTOBER – 22 NOVEMBER
Being in two minds about almost everything seems to be the norm this week. From the most trivial to the most profound, there will be going back and forth about aspects of your life. This will make decision making very difficult. The Two of Swords shows that this kind of vacillating between everything will put you in a battle mode and bring the aggression out there. The Knight of Swords comes to show that. You will feel that you have to fight for everything and anything and that is tiring and demoralising. You must however remember that you have the problem of choice and not lack of it. The Eight of Cups will bring this wanting to drop everything and run away and not to make decisions that are stressing you out right now. You will have to cut through all these emotions with the sword of proper reasoning and logic to be able to wade through troubled waters.
22 NOVEMBER – 22 DECEMBER
Any father figure who has been like a mentor or guide or leader as far as you are concerned will be the focus this week. The Emperor is looking after things from above and around you. You are under the influence of such teachings and inputs. And this comes in a timely manner especially when you are feeling particularly alone and isolated in your endeavors and decisions you would like to make in your life. The Hermit signifies this and while you might be feeling like this you are not alone and The Emperor and the divine are there with you no matter what. The Hermit also makes you feel weary and battle-worn but that is only a phase. The Three of Pentacles shows a lot of planning is going on when it comes to work and your personal life.
22 DECEMBER – 20 JANUARY
The Nine of Pentacles brings confidence and money into the hands of those born under this sign- and this applies more to the women than the men and there will be a host of confident women who will come into their own with the power of financial standing. But there is also a flip side with female energies being subject to moods and emotions and the mind will not allow them to enjoy their success and their sense of command and power. They will be troubled by comments and inputs from those around them who will not let them be. The Moon card brings about this. The pressures of family friends and society at large will undermine what they have worked so hard for. And it will be unrealistic to expect the world to applaud and appreciate them because the mindset is like that.
20 JANUARY – 18 FEBRUARY
A week where there will be comfort in the financial security and in doing well at work but there will be difficult moments where the frustrations will build up and cause sleepless nights. The Seven of Pentacles shows that there is enough money to tide you over the future, while the Ace of Cups shows that you will ride over emotional weakness to be on top of things and do everything to the best of your capabilities. It also shows success and admiration from those you work with and for and there will be all round appreciation for all that you do. These bring their own pressures with the Nine of Swords which shows a lot of tension in the workings of it all. It is a mixed week where you’ll have to balance emotions and thoughts.
18 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
This is going to be a week where you will get opportunities to be carefree and feel like the proverbial bird without any cares or worries. The Fool card shows this aspect for now. Meanwhile, the Knight of Cups brings to light the pride and admiration you will feel for those young people in your life. Their achievements, their work and their attitude to life. They will also make you feel happy and fulfilled. You will feel like you have got the whole world through them. And that is what the world card is showing. You yourself could be enjoying the attention and happiness of jobs well done. A sense of completion will come about as you go about the days of the coming week.
