Card of the Day-6 August 2017

Lightning (Power) and Spring Equinox (Rebirth)

What powerful energies seem to be present today! Perhaps it deals with this upcomingphotomania-498d8ccceded9b18d4be2f716c43e405 Full Moon/ Eclipse on Monday. Today we are being told to retake our power. Stop littling yourself and shrinking away from fear or for the sake of others. You have much to offer the world but you can’t do any of that if you’re not allowing your authentic self to shine like the star that you are! (Maybe that’s just my Leo sun talking ;))
photomania-9293ca2a8d49fc37d1cdabd181031336If you reclaim your power then it will feel like a rebirth–a renewal. It can feel like you’re a new person but you aren’t. You are simply whole. You’re not denying an aspect of yourself to please others. I know. I have done this on numerous occasions and have only now reclaimed my own power and it can be hella scary! I constantly worry about what others will think, if I may lose someone because they don’t agree with my path but that’s their problem. Not mine. I cannot masquerade as someone I’m not simply to make them feel better.
So, my friends, focus today on reclaiming your personal power, what that means to you, and have it can help you sort of go through a cycle of renewal and newness. What are some things you can do daily to help acheive this new stage? No one said it was easy but it’s worth it.

Card of the Day-5 August 2017

Knowledge

Life in and of itself is a learning experience. We’re constantly learning, even if we aren’tphotomania-743de9c3d63045e24785bdffeead1299 reading a book, which is what people generally associate knowledge with. Of course, it’s a method of learning–but only one. That painful break-up serves us a point to learn. That beautiful baby nestled in our arms is likewise a great teacher. Even more subtle, energy itself teaches us as we learn valuable information simply by attuning in.
Today is all about recognizing those various soruces of knowledge and to know that we are all students in life. This lessens the pressure to be on top of everything at all times as well as serves as a vessel for healing.
Take time today to even honor this by actively seeking to learn something new. Find a new recipe and create a delicious lunch. Grab a book and read. Sit beneath a tree and ask that it let you learn about it energetically. Even watching YouTube videos can be educational–what a day and age we live in! 🙂

 

“Learning comes naturally for me and through actively attuning to the energy of All, knowledge is mine to behold. I know what it is I need to know, when the appropriate time comes.”–The Autumn Witch

Card of the Day-4 August 2017

2 of Chalices and Queen of Pentacles

These cards would NOT let me shuffle them properly then these two flipped over without photomania-d904c4c9529b60a682e202fc389815f6me drawing them so needless to say, Spirit WANTED this message! Lol.

A partnership or relationship may present itself today. Conversely, if you are already in a relationship then today may be a day which only strengthens and deepens your connection and bond to one another. There’s respect and equal exchange of energies and love in a relationship. You can have it all, My Darling. A loving relationship, a strong friendship, a respectable business partnership, and success. There’s an union of two individuals possible but it’s your decision whether you seize the opportunity or not.

photomania-e5cc1fe3cc9a448fe68e7acb973db01bI usually have a quite longer write-up but today’s cards seem very much direct. I looked at them and immediately knew precisely what they were talking about. And ya’ll the Queen of Pentacles is very Venus for me right now and I have no idea why. I’ll go with it lol.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Card of the Day-3 August 2017

Gaia’s Garden

How appropriate a card for this season, especially only a couple of days after the celebration of Lughnasadh. It is customary on all three of the harvest festivals (though I photomania-0a4605aa01de029c30994f021e23b3bffeel Samhain may be the exception for most) to give thanks for the blessings and manifestations that have come to fruition within our lives. A couple of days ago, or yesterday for me, we gave thanks for what we’ve already begun to reap with the hopes of more yet to come. Gratitude is one of the most beautiful vibrations and if you follow the law of attraction, when you send that vibration out, you will receive more things to be grateful for. It’s a beautiful cycle.

However, once our rituals are done and the circles have been released, we go about our daily lives which may or may not include regular prayers of thanks. This is what we are being reminded of today. There are always reasons to be grateful and it’s important to keep them in mind and give thanks. You needn’t wait for a holiday. These small moments of prayer should be within our daily habits. It could be a simple prayer before meals, before bed, or even just as small as a “Thank You!” whispered to the Universe.

How do you express gratitude? Is it on a daily basis or reserved for only the special occasions? Gratitude isn’t like fine china, my friends. No need to keep it stored away until the next family get-together. If you don’t already have a gratitude practice, how could you go about integrating it into your daily life as it is?

Card of the Day-2 August 2017

The 7 of Wands and 9 of Swords (Jumper) photomania-69cdd936c22b84cf4543c55d9e452e00

You may feel guarded and defensive today—with rightful cause. There’s a heaviness that weighs upon your mind that has been haunting you for quite some time. Maybe it’s an issue that has even crept into your very nightmares. It’s painful and tormenting as you may feel hopeless and alone. This could be caused by you or another person. More than likely it’s a deep-rooted issue finally coming to light—or resurfacing. One that is going to require every last ounce of will, creativity, and mental power to release. Prepare to tackle it head-on instead of sweeping it back underneath the rug where it will only fester and plague you further.

photomania-41ae1fa6f1392689d460e8249c83458cTrue transformation isn’t easy and takes time. It’s a process—not a once and you’re done event. There’s some energy building but it’s time to conquer your fear. It’s time to heal. It’s important to remember that you are never alone. Spirit is always there, awaiting your call for help. Just as your spirit guides, ancestors, and angels. They can’t help unless you ask. Sometimes we become so swept up in our mundane, hectic, and chaotic lives that we become disconnected from Spirit and whenever this happens, we do end up with a feeling that we are the only ones who must tackle our problems. We begin to feel scared and isolated. Whereas when you shift back into remembering that you have such a large spiritual support system, you feel empowered and full of love and confidence. It’s a significant shift.

This is your call to finally heal. Transform, little caterpillar. You’ve been suffering for long enough—perhaps longer than you should’ve. Rise up, stand your ground, and assert yourself. Creativity may be needed but you can do it. If you feel like this issue is too ingrained, ask for help in releasing and healing from it. Remember, it’s a process and you may need to repeat whatever it is you need to do a couple of times before it really takes hold. That’s okay. So long as the work is finally being done. It’s time to let go. You’ve been holding on for far too long. Heal. Transform. Carry on.

Card of the Day-31 July 2017

2 of Pentacles Reversed & Knight of SwordsCOTD-31 July 17

You may find yourself in an uncomfortable dance as you desperately attempt to find balance in your life. There may be a situation that you’ve been weighing the pros and cons about, unsure and undecided. This has only led to turmoil and struggle as you constantly try to maintain a sense of order and groundedness. This could be caused by your desire to spring forward into action. Perhaps you hold the belief that you must constantly be in control of life and that passive actions are non-actions.

Unfortunately, when we refuse to make room for a flow of energy, when we cling too tight to what we want or believe, we create the very imbalance we are struggling with. We try to force our timing onto situations and the outcomes we hope for when they may not be for our highest good. The tireless juggling and dancing is holding you back. Are you in your own way? Take time today to make room and just step away. Allow the Universe/Spirit/God/Goddess to be of help. You needn’t do everything alone. It’s okay to ask for help. Sometimes we are our very worst enemies.

Cards of the Week: 31 July 17-6 August 17

Monday/Tuesday—The Desert Prince Reversed

Though this card deals with survival and false promises, the imagery is very ferocious, photomania-17e2bcd307674f8bc42bb9eb2750d1a8 Leo-y, and vibrant. It’s about control, desire, motivation, courage, and the feeling you must continue pushing forward lest you may not succeed. Monday and Tuesday, we are being told to release this need for control. This isn’t about being passive and indeed we are clearly being warned to be wary of deceit and/or false promises that others—or ourselves—can’t keep. It’s about removing our pride, our ego, from the equation and taking an objective look around us. It is only through this bird’s eye view that we are capable of gaining any sense of clarity to even learn of such lies and false promises. It is through the flow and not through the forcing of anything, that we are able to discern truth.

 

photomania-4e3ef4035632012ab3b2305a7af4d61eWednesday/Thursday—The Queen of the Light Reversed

We may find ourselves trying to lessen our light, our brightness, for any reason. It is then we must ask ourselves “what is triggering this reaction?” Why do we hide away our gifts, skills, and talents? Why do you attempt to ignore or hide our authentic selves and instead seek to conform to standards imposed by those who don’t even conform themselves! In order to truly be happy and free, we must learn to embrace our true selves and not dull our spark for anyone. It’s their problem if they can’t handle your brilliance, not yours. Thursday is when Uranus will retrograde in Aries so really pay attention to what is brought up during this time. It can be a time when any illusions are illuminated so that we may instead witness the truth that’s been lurking the entire time. You may find you have likewise kept certain aspects of yourself from reaching the light—why? You must embrace all of you otherwise your light won’t be as bright, My Darling.

The Weekend—Friday, Saturday, and Sunday—The Phoenix photomania-0b6090200494fa14023f92198d6e47eb

If we do what is needed of us, we will experience a beautiful and profound transformation begin to take shape. Like a phoenix we must burn so that we may arise from the ashes, stronger and brighter. You may have found something that you realized wasn’t in alignment with your highest good, that no longer served you, or just wasn’t going anywhere. Release it and instead embrace the change. Life is a cycle and when one journey ends, another begins. This is true even in death for when we die, we only enter a different realm, a different plane, which most definitely becomes a new journey for us until we are reborn and start again.

 

photomania-776f1b560b498216d99a210c4a6dd568Such beautiful cards and what a wonderful message for this week! Don’t believe we don’t have loads of work to do—collectively and individually—but if we are true to ourselves, to our highest purpose, then we shall not fail. The summary card for this week is The Dream Walker Reversed. Wake up! Everything that is occurring within your life, at this very moment, has been created by your thoughts and your actions. Everything. This is GREAT! Why? Because it means that if this isn’t how you envisioned your life then you have the power to CHANGE it. We’ve become disillusioned and perhaps even completely disinterested or unmotivated. We’ve begun to believe or think that life isn’t a dance we partake in but something that happens to us. We have no control, no movement, nothing. WRONG! If you don’t like where it’s headed, then Darling, salsa right on out of there and work to create and manifest the life of your dreams. This week we have the enlightenment of such a realization—one we may have already known but have since forgotten. Don’t belittle yourself. It happens. We’re being reminded this week that we aren’t trapped. We hold the key to our lives. It’s up to us whether we decide to do something about it or remained locked away in fear.

Brightest of Blessings,

The Autumn Witch
