Today we are reminded that everything has a natural cycle which starts from the conception to the harvest/completion then rests before beginning anew once more. A perfect reminder of Divine Timing. Recently we began planning our goals and may have even started putting them into action but we may need to be reminded that if we force something to happen, if we strive and begin to force, we may restrict it from manifesting. Instead we must allow for movement. Room for our goals to manifest organically. This is the natural order of all. As humans we can be quite impatient (guilty here!) but everything goes by Divine Timing. Spirit will bring your manifestations into your life at the right moment—not too soon and not too late.
This is just a gentle reminder to breathe. We ourselves go through cycles of change as well so take some time today as well to note where you are in your own personal seasons. Are you having your spring where everything is beginning to grow? Perhaps you are having your own autumn where your goals planted in the actual spring are about ready for harvest? You could be having your own winter where instead there’s a need for reflection and contemplation? Or even summer where everything is just in bloom and you are basking in all that is manifesting within your life? I remember Flora Sage on her CharmingPixieFlora Youtube Channel talking about this a while back but unfortunately the video is no longer available otherwise I would link to it because it was fabulous.
Anyways, the meaning today is sort of two-fold. 1) Remember that everything is in Divine Timing and that it’s the natural cycle of the earth. Therefore, while it’s good to work towards a goal and have determination and really strive for it, you mustn’t force it. This only restricts it. Instead allow the goal to manifest organically. Allow room for the energy to flow. 2) Our own lives embody this cycle of change and growth. Reflect on what season your personal life would be in right now and ask how you can use that to assist you in your goals. Remember you can’t skip a season no matter how hard you may want to. Everything has it’s natural course with each season and stage in life being just as necessary as the next. So when you finally reach that harvest season when all your goals and work are reaching completion, don’t just jump into the next project. Allow some time to contemplate, reflect, and meditate on what’s happened. Allow some down time to chill out beforehand—even if for just a day.

Feelings of lack may be prevalent today but know that a momentary situation of lack doesn’t equate a lifetime of little. Its during these times we begin anguishing and doubting our selves. We start shifting into a mindset that isn’t in the least bit helpful. Know that though money may seem lacking now, it is on its way, if you believe. Shift your thoughts away from lack and envision yourself prosperous with enough. Hold this image and really breath into it. Feel it with every fiber of your being. It’ll happen. Just be aware of these thoughts of lack and use them to reaffirm what it is you desire. *Card from Rider-Waite deck

This past full moon was a wonderful opportunity to reflect and take an honest look at what was no longer serving us so that we may release it in order to continue forward on our paths and in our lives. We set goals and intentions that we hope to accomplish within the next few months which wouldn’t be necessarily as easy to accomplish should we have continued carrying that heavy load we were still carrying from the past.
As the work week begins and we start getting back into the humdrum of daily tasks and whatnot, we’re being gently reminded to reflect on our goals, our reasoning behind why we want them, and what we must bring into our lives to achieve them. We may find ourselves grumbling about how hard this is going to be or even doubting ourselves—thus wanting to return to the very things we released since that is what we are comfortable with. While this might be tempting, it isn’t the way. Reflect on what root issue is making you feel this way and how instead you can work to shift that mindset. Also, remind yourself of your goals, your reason why, and your plan. How are you going to do this? That way, when those self-doubting thoughts do arise, you can easily combat them because you CAN do this because you have a plan!
Our egos like to bite at us, belittling and scaring us. Meanwhile, our spirit is what gently supports and reminds us that we deserve all the abundance, happiness, and love in the world. We can do anything if we truly have the will and the desire. Just know, if it’s for your highest good then it will manifest.
So, just take some time and really reflect. Yesterday may have been an emotional day in which we got deep into our heart chakras and allowed our emotions to run a bit more freely than normal. Now is time to get back into our minds a bit. It is only through the unification and balance of mind and heart, ego and spirit, that we are able to achieve our goals, dreams, and desires.

Emotions are flowing again as we’ve grown more in touch with ourselves and our inner selves recently. For me, this was the main topic during the Full Moon. How was I denying love and emotional connections and how would opening my heart help aid in the manifestation of my goals and dreams? It was some very heavy duty stuff, in all honesty.
Returning to the card, we may have been blocking or denying ourselves an emotional experience due to fear. We’re being told to relax and instead of focusing so much within our minds, allow ourselves to also be led by our hearts. The Capricorn Full Moon may have brought a lot of logical thinking to the forefront and this card is trying to balance that back out. A unification of mind and emotion, head and heart, is needed. This may manifest as either an opportunity or person coming into our lives that will have some sort of emotional impact. If a new relationship has been a goal of yours then make sure to pay attention! They may cross your path soon enough. If we remain within our heads and restrict the flow then we may miss out. It’s a time to allow some room for manifestation, open our hearts, and simply go with the flow. Allow yourself to tune into your intuition, be open to love and emotional connections, and simply follow your heart. Sometimes the best things in life are felt and not clearly understood. Sometimes we must lead with our hearts.

We all have heard of the law of attraction and many of us put it into practice. We know our thoughts become reality and thereby do our best to remain focused on what it is we desire instead of what we no longer want. We do our best to quit bitching and complaining. We shift to focusing on the positive and holding a place of gratitude within our hearts for the blessings we have been given.
This is always easier said than done and for most people, myself included at times, we just can’t figure out why the hell we aren’t drawing something into our lives. We’ve had success with the LOA before but now, nothing! I’m going to tell you, more often than not, the problem is you. You are what is holding yourself back. More specifically, it’s your limiting beliefs you might hold. Sometimes we are fully aware of these thought patterns while other times we have buried those feelings so completely that we haven’t a clue!
Have you wanted to manifest a new job that you’ll love but as soon as you land that dream interview or job, something bad happens that causes you to lose it? Instead of throwing blame, ask yourself, “am I afraid of success? do I think i’m not good enough?”. You may have limited beliefs which are forcing you to live the same old story without breaking free. In regards to love, you may secretly believe you are unworthy of love regardless of the countless “I deserve love” affirmations you do.
This is good though because it means you have the power to destroy those negative thought patterns to create new more inspired positive thoughts.
Don’t sabotage yourself. You deserve to be happy, loved, free, and to live a life you love. Stop placing the blame on others and take an honest look at yourself. What thoughts do you keep having? This isn’t about scolding or getting angry with yourself. It’s identifying a problem and implementing a solution. Set yourself free of limiting beliefs. Manifest the life you desire. You’re worth it!

What a great card for today as I return from a social media break. We all have moments where for our own good and sanity we must step away from the computer, turn off our phones, and spend time with loved ones, with ourselves, and in nature. Life becomes so hectic that we lose touch with our own spirit. Constantly are we bombarded with external energies, ideas, beliefs, and/or concepts that we literally can feel as if we are being swept out to sea. If you have noticed feeling this way, take time away from social media to really disconnect with the world and instead reconnect to your spirit. You may learn things you never even realized you didn’t know. I had this experience after struggling with an issue for 5 years! 5 years!
Breaks are good and vital. When its time to return, you will do so feeling much better, inspired, grounded and centered. Almost like a new person.

Don’t Forget!!!! 1 more day until Litha/Summer Solstice!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!
Today’s Card of the Day is the 5 of Cups reversed. This is a reminder that not all “bad” situations are negative. Instead they are necessary and full of potential. Instead we ought to step away from the narrow perspective that is stuck in the details and look at the larger picture which may reveal the situation’s or circumstances’ grander role. Difficult times are brought into our lives for various reasons but they can be used as ways to better ourselves. It is through battling the lower situations that we learn our strength and value, thus allowing us to rise above in our true worth. This doesn’t mean they suck. They do but with this card, we are being challenged to find the silver lining within the disappointment. What can be learned? What is the purpose of this situation? Even the smallest glimmer can shine bright.
