Card of the Day-11 July 2017

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 20170711_100243-1our 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.

 

Blessed Be.

Card of the Day-29 May 2017

King of Wands

Today’s a day of focus and reflection, of honoring and remembering. In the United States we honor those heroic men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we may IMG_20170529_075821_400be free.
Today is nowadays spent with family at the beach or barbecue’s which is why we are being reminded to keep the true meaning of today in mind. I saw a news article yesterday that said Memorial Day has lost its meaning for most Americans. This card is asking that not to be case.

I give honor and thanks to those who have given their lives so that I and my family may be kept free.

Card of the Day-26 May 2017

The Magician Reversed with jumpers-2 of Wands and 6 of Chalices Reversed.

These cards give a very clear message: wait before moving forward!!! With just having celebrated the New Moon (I will be tomorrow), you may be ready to get your feet on the ground and manifest those intentions. However, we’re being told to hold our horses and chill for a bit. Allow those intentions to really set before we begin action. All because weIMG_20170526_005033_605 aren’t actively working towards them doesn’t mean we aren’t doing anything. Remember that!
The Magician is telling us things are not in our control at the moment. Wait. Don’t force it. 2 of Wands is all about looking to the future, reflection, and balancing our thoughts. The magician is balanced so this could be what must be controlled first. 6 of Chalices means that we are being drawn to look back at the past, at the old, but with a sense of detachment. We are being called to release. There may be something from the past you are still secretly clinging to which isn’t going to be conducive to manifestation.

For whatever you reason, you may have found yourself switching directions in life, whether that be in residence, job, or lifestyle change. This was always as it was meant to be as we’re brought to certain points within our lives so that we may learn lessons and IMG_20170521_080448_717have experiences necessary to our journey in this lifetime. However, all because you are changing or about to make changes doesn’t mean everything must go. It’s like the old saying, “don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”. What does this mean? Well, simply put, you needn’t throw everything away and completely begin anew. There are always good aspects within a negative situation—you just have to dig enough. I’ve been through some challenging times myself that most people won’t ever have to deal with and believe me, I know how daunting and challenging such a task may seem.

Movement and action aren’t the priority today in this aspect. Instead it’s about returning to your center—to your heart space—and reflecting honestly about your journey thus far, where you want to go, and what you would like to take with you. Some things are meant to stay with us. If they had a positive impact on our lives or bring us joy then why deny them simply because we think we should instead focus our attention and energy on a new course? It’s about mixing and melding the old and the new. The dual aspects of life—past and future. Take some time today to really reflect, journal, set your intentions then create a course of action and list of goals in order to manifest this desired life that allows you to continue with certain aspects of the past that you still resonate with as well as the expansive, potential filled future of your dreams. Craft your life well, my friends.

Card of the Day

8 of Chalices

Well, interestingly enough we had this card earlier this week as well. Maybe there was some work left undone or work we perhaps weren’t ready to deal with at the time? Either way, now’s just as good as any. Reflect today on emotions and feelings that you may have been holding onto and suppressing so that you may finally be able to release them. Given today being Valentine’s Day, take a look also at past relationships, past heartaches and breakups to see how they may be still effecting your vision of love and relationships. It’s time, My Darling. Let those old feelings that no longer serve you go. Release them so that you may allow new feelings, experiences, love, and relationships into your life. 💕

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine’s Day! May your day be filled with love and joy!

Undoubtedly, if your full moon experience was anything like mine was then loads of emotions came flooding to the surface, illuminating any hidden shadows and issues we may have been facing. There were emotions coming out of the woodwork for me that I hadn’t even realized I was still struggling with! We may be ready to jump into action to clear these emotions today but we’re being guided to not leave them behind just yet. Not to move on. Instead, we are being guided to sit and stay with them so that we may fully understand them and how they began from the start. Only with a full set of knowledge may we be capable of releasing them. I’ll be meditating and reflecting on mine today then using the residual moon energy tonight to release them and embrace the change I want.

Card of the Day

The Lovers

Take stock of your relationships today. Are they meaningful? Positive? Forced? Fizzling out? Put some time and energy today really mindful of this and even do something for a significant other. This is a good time for this analysis as Venus entered Aquarius Wednesday which is about why, how, and where we care. Its about connecting on a soul level and even being able to change the way we feel. So, just take some time of reflection and ask yourself, “Is my relationship meaningful?  Am I connected to this person on a deep, soul level?”. ❤
