How to do monthly card readings

Offering regular group readings is a fun way to add value to an audience, or Facebook group. Those on my email list enjoy animal spirit insights each month.  Here’s a behind-the-scenes plan of how to do monthly card readings.

My secret is to batch it for an entire 12 months. That way the energies stay coherent and any threads become very obvious as it weaves through the year. It’s fascinating what may pop up one month, to be continued a little later down the track.


Plan the frequency

Is the card reading monthly, weekly or quarterly? Plan the frequency ahead so it helps with intention. Here I used a large sheet of paper with each month on a sticky note to create the yearly layout.



Whether it’s for one person or a large group, the process is the same. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but simply a marker of entering into another state of awareness. Some light a candle, play music or just get quiet and turn inwards. Pro tip: the simpler it is, the easier and more often you’ll go there!


Imagine everyone in the group. Even those who haven’t come yet. See your energy flowing going out to blend with the entire group; everyone who’s there or will be there in the future. Feel your energy extending out, connecting with those gorgeous shiny lights.


Set the intention

As you are shuffling ask: “What do these people most need to know? How can I serve them best?” Begin laying out one card for each month alongside that month’s sticky note.  At this point I take a quick snap of the cards as a reminder.


Reading the cards

Staying tuned into the group, focus on each card, allow impressions to come. Stay open and let whatever comes. Colours, images, or shapes might jump out, and they will be relevant to the readings. Allow everything to be part of the reading trusting that whatever comes is for the group and you are connected.

Pro tip: Overthinking messes with accuracy. Let go and trust!


Follow your own guidance

Trust in the organic process of intuition, let the imaginative right brain of our soul work. What are you inspired to say as you remain linked to the energy of the group? Let that be the reading.

If any thoughts come up to doubt, or question, know you’ve slipped into left brained overthinking and gone “offline”. Gently re-connect to the energy of the group and allow the flow to re-commence.


Ignore the book

They say there’s three types of readers. When we start, our trust still has to grow, and we rely on the card meanings to create the reading.

Then as proficiency and confidence rises we know the information sought is within the person or group we read for and the cards only serve as signposts. We let go of the guide book and as we fly on our own wings.

Lastly as we master the art of intuitive connection, we know the true source of our insights is the soul to soul link created with an alchemical mix of genuine intention and desire to serve.

Where ever you find yourself on this scale, each one is valid and serves a great need. Doing group oracle card readings is a fun way to practice and give back.

Semi fictional story about me

In 1994, I had a midlife crisis, got a boob job and moved to Byron Bay.

Quickly realized there was nothing there but more boob jobs and white furniture, so I escaped faux-spiritual beach culture, went to Peru, and experimented with DMT.

While in Peru, fell in love with a Shaman who was really a plumber from Padstow, but stayed because of attachment issues.

After following a puma from the jungle, I holed up in a Scandi-style Air B’n’B and finally got enlightened.

Parts of this story are true.
