Oracle Card of the Week: Endings & Beginnings

Updated: Apr 28, 2020


Welcome to the premier blog for the Oracle Card of the Week Series! I have wanted to do a blog series like this for a long time now, and I'm so grateful to finally have the opportunity. Each week I will pull a new card and we will discuss the hidden meanings and messages. All of the cards we will be discussing come directly from the three decks that I use in my practice at Erstwhile Studios. If you've ever had a reading from me before, than you will likely recognize a lot of the cards that we'll be discussing. If you haven't had the opportunity to get a reading from me, then let me just say, that I'm glad you're here! If there is anything I can do to help you feel more comfortable about booking an appointment, please let me know. I will support you in any way that I can. Readings are an excellent way to seek clarity and guidance. They are not meant to tell you exactly what is going to happen to you on the 3rd of Never. They help us zone in and focus and a specific area of our life that we are avoiding confronting. I treat it as a type of therapy vs some who do voo doo practice. I run specials for new clients and for referrals! I also offer remote sessions that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home! Now let's talk about my girl, Kali.

Goddess Kali

Endings & Beginnings

(pronounced Kah-Lee)

This week's Oracle Card that we are focusing on, is brought to us by the Goddess Deck by Doreen Virtue. This deck is absolutely beautiful! Each card showcases different Goddesses, who bring a variety of messages to help guide us on our paths. This week we will be focused on the beautiful Goddess Kali. She is the Goddess of Endings and Beginnings, or more simply put; change. Her cards tells us, "The old must be released so that the new can enter." This feels like an extremely apt card to have pulled in a time that is faced with so much change. Everything about our lives has changed in the past few months. We've changed the way we communicate, the way we shop, how we hear the news, and absorb politics. We view the world around us through new eyes. Everything has gone through a cycle of change and continues to go through one. We haven't reached the end of this pandemic yet and therefore, we haven't officially seen what our new beginning looks like. My hope is that we will develop a better, more awakened style of living. One where we are compassionate and aware of the world around us. I'd like our new normal to no longer revolve around walking through our lives with blinders on where we turn a blind eye to the terrors going on in the world around us. So let's dive a little deeper into the meaning behind this card.

What is Change?

What comes to your mind when you think of the word change? What do you associate with that word? Does it cause anxiety for you or do you get excited at the possibilities? So many things in our lives are subject to change. From our daily habits like how we eat, dress, our route to work, or even how we approach difficult situations. Life itself is subject to change. What is the cycle of life if not a beginning and an end of a story? But the world doesn't end when we lose someone (even though sometimes it feels that way). We find a new normal. A new way of living and getting through our day emerges from that ending. So we change. We, as humans are so against change but we are faced with it every day. Small things change in our day. Was there a train that forced you to take a different route to work? Did you get a phone call or text that brightened or ruined your day? These are just a couple examples of things that happen everyday.
