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

Card of the Day- 10 July 2017

The Knight of Chalices

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 20170709_225708-1manifestation 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.

Card of the Day-3 May 2017

Card of the Day
Dragonfly (Emergence)

You’ve recently found yourself shifting and changing, which is of no surprise given the multitude of retrogrades that have beeb happening. Old patterns, beliefs, thoughts, and visions of ourselves are being stripped away so that we may be our most authentic selves. However,  change can and is scary but its the only constant in life. The only means for growth and expansion.
There is something different about this change and that’s how fast its occurring. It may have even been something not expected though necessary which may lead to resistance and even worse, clutching tightly to our old ways in fear or worry. Don’t, my friends. Though it may seem as if you’re unprepared or not ready, you needn’t feel that way. Spirit will never throw you into something you couldn’t handle. Breathe. Allow this change to unfurl and unfold in all its uneasy splendor. Yes, it may be scary- change rarely isn’t- but know that it is necessary and ultimately for your highest good.
In times such as this, when we immediately begin to panic, we seem to forget we have a Divine team waiting to help-we only need ask. Pray. Ask for help. Even speak with friends or family who will understand. You needn’t go about this alone.
Don’t turn back out of fear. Don’t continue with things you know aren’t for you. Allow this change to flow. Pray for guidance and help.  Above all else, breathe. You can do this. I believe in you. ❤

Brightest of Blessings,

The Autumn Witch
