What powerful energies seem to be present today! Perhaps it deals with this upcoming 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 ;))
If 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.

Life in and of itself is a learning experience. We’re constantly learning, even if we aren’t 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

These cards would NOT let me shuffle them properly then these two flipped over without me 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.
I 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!

(Excuse the horrid camera quality. I have no clue what’s wrong. Ugh, Technology, right?)
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 feel 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?

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.
True 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.
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.
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.
