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.
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.
Brightest of Blessings,

Note: I am now officially back after these past several weeks of inactivity, or limited activity. WOO-HOO! 🙂
*Card is from the Rider-Waite Deck
Don’t forget you can also find me on Social Media!
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 we 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.
Some caution is best given today as tensions may rise. Arguments or disagreements you thought were over may reappear. Try to stay grounded and centered and not allow your temper to boil. Tact, caution, discernment, and awareness are key today. *From Rider-Waite Deck
Knave of Wands
This card has a double meaning for me today so I will share both as one may apply to most and the other to a few. 😊
These past few weeks you may have been struggling with an idea, a concept, or thought. Perhaps you’d hit a creative rut-I know my writer’s block has been exhausting! Pay attention today as inspiration may strike and allow those juices to flow once more. There’s movement of energy now which is great if your head has been in a sort of foggy cloud as of late and with all these planets in retrograde, its not surprising.
Also, some of you may have a visitor today (planned or unplanned). It may even be someone returning from your past. As I stated there’s movement with this card and the knave is drawing my attention, alluding to this feeling of a person coming to call.
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.
