Today’s Card of the Day is the Ace of Cups reversed with two other cards to clarify: The Star and Queen of Disks (Pentacles).
We want to heal the world and certainly could agree that it is in need of it. Every day we are bombarded by images and stories of destruction, fear, hate, ignorance, and intolerance. This is unbearable, especially for an empath or healer. We want to spread light into the world. We want to help. However, we can’t spread anything from an empty cup which is bound to happen when we allow ourselves to become drained. We invest so much of our time and energy into these stories and our mission that we forget we must care for ourselves as well. It’s only practical. Before we can share our light, we must be in control of our bodies and selves. Take time to refill your own heart with light. Do something that brings you joy. Go for a walk, paint, dance, play with a pet. Anything to recharge your own heart chakra so that you may be the luminous healer and lightbearer you were meant to be.
This is going to perhaps be the running theme for a bit as this certainly isn’t a quick fix sort of issue. So how can we possibly hope to accomplish this besides fueling our own joy? I pulled an oracle card for guidance and had one jump out as well. The meaning was more than spot on and I almost gasped when I saw it because duh, why didn’t I think of that?! The actual card pulled actually had me laughing because it took me a moment. So, the card pulled was Full Moon (Completion) which confused me because I didn’t get the completion part. I realized this card was being literal and referring to the Full Moon which is on the 9th. It’s a time to set intentions, release what is no longer serving us, and do manifestation magick. The jumper was Rainbow (Blessings). We can recharge ourselves by counting our blessings each and every day since gratitude raises our vibrations. However, it would seem that this Full Moon is particularly important to do so.
Be grateful for what is right and good in the world, set some intentions, recharge yourself, do some TLC, ignite your passions so that you may spread more light into this world so that we may be healed and whole again.

You may find difficulties in focusing your thoughts and attention today. There is just a rather spacey feeling and you don’t find yourself mentally grounded very well. This may stem from an outside source but before pointing fingers, take notice of yourself and ask if you may be the cause of it. Low self confidence may be the issue. Perhaps with these retrogrades you’ve began questioning so much about yourself and your beliefs that you almost feel like you don’t recognize or even know yourself.
Confront these issues and understand, if that was the case, that you aren’t a new and unknown person. You have only awakened to who your spirit always was. Find connection to yourself and your beliefs. Spend some time reflecting. Journaling may help. Know too that sometimes we do become so absorbed in our thoughts and worries that we forget to return to earth and ground. 😉

As the sun moves from fiery Aries, which gave us that spark for life and action once more, to the earthy and stable Taurus, we will find ourselves becoming more grounded. We aren’t as quick to jump into action but instead must ensure there is an emotional desire to our actions. We can have all the energy, will, and I can attitude but unless there is an emotional investment (a desire within) then it isn’t an inspired action. If you’re having trouble manifesting something in your life, assess what emotions it invokes within you? Is there even an emotional response? Remember emotions create our need, our desire, our want and is an important part of the witch’s pyramid.
