April 20 – April 26 2015

Hello lovelies! This week’s energy is being brought to light by the King of Cups, Six of Pentacles and The Hierophant in reverse.

We are surrounded this week by kindness and compassion and are encouraged by the King of Cups to remember to show ourselves love and find time to nurture ourselves. There is a balance of masculine and feminine energy present. Know that the universe is supporting you at this time even if you are afraid of moving forward. This supportive energy will help you make steps into the unknown and assist you in remaining balanced. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone a bit and extend that same loving energy toward others. Allow others to “fill your cup” when you feel depleted of energy. 

The Six of Pentacles directly relates to this abundant positive energy. There will be a cycle, a flow, of energy that will be reciprocated this week. All of that seed planting you’ve been doing and all of those positive thoughts you’ve been putting forward are really going to flourish this week and come full circle. Now is a perfect time to share the wealth of good vibes with those around you. 

This week with all of the good energy floating around, the Hierophant suggests that you follow what you know to be the right thing for you. It might break away from your usual way of going about things but that which is living is subject to change. And if we can expect to grow and be nourished spiritually, it might require some change. Remain true to yourself even if others around you might not immediately approve. Continue to show yourself that love and spend time quieting your mind as there is a lot to listen for. Follow your intuition. You have the tools and the knowledge you need. Just allow yourself to do what is right for you. Ultimately it is your path and your journey. No one else can live it for you or tell you how to experience it. 

So this week show yourself love and spread it to others, reap the benefits of the intentions you set previously, and do what is right for you. Own up to who you are and shake off any negative vibes. Allow the positive energy to spring you into a new step on your path.

#NewMoonTarot – April 18 2015

Hello again lovelies! Today we have a New Moon in Aries, which is ruled by The Emperor card. The affirmation for today is “I Am”. The card I have pulled today is Strength.

Today’s message for us, which is represented by the Aries and Emperor energies, is entirely about knowing who you are, being firm in who you are, and finding strength inside yourself. The Strength card only confirms that even more and really tells us that we have the strength to recognize “I Am”. With it being a New Moon, we are invited to start fresh, to begin a new journey, to cleanse and release old energies to allow for growth and health. This is a perfect time to become inspired and motivated by the things you love and the part of yourself that is aching to get out and flourish! 

The energy from this New Moon is going to assist with boosting your confidence and helping you to find a strength inside yourself to do the things you’ve been wanting to. There is a high energy today and a fire in you to make things happen! Aries is the God of war in mythology. This New Moon is a good encouragement to go to war on the negative energies in your life that might be holding you back. Release them and remember to use the resources you have and find strength in them! Resonate today with both of your feminine and masculine energies, find a balance in yourself and in that balance you’ll find courage to start new. Try to say yes today to things you’d normally find yourself saying no to. 

Time to make things happen! Have a beautiful day!

April 13 – April 19 2015

Hello lovelies! This week we are guided by the Eight of Staffs reversed, the King of Pentacles, and the Knight of Swords reversed. 

The reversed Eight of Staffs calls us to be patient this week and spend some time in quiet thought. There’s a lot involved this week and you could feel pulled in a lot of directions. Some will pull you emotionally, others will cause you to think. This card also reminds us that there’s no changing the choices we’ve made in the past. Acknowledge what has happened and look forward to how you can grow from that situation. Use meditation to find clarity of mind. 

The King of Pentacles is here to remind us to stick with methods and routines that have already been set in place, meaning now is not the time to be adventurous. This plays a part in the lesson of patience this week. Remember that things happen a certain way for a reason, even if you don’t understand it at first. You might receive help from a man who you consider to be an authority in your life. Be wiling to share the fruits of your labor with others but also be wary of becoming “big-headed.” 

And finally we have the Knight of Swords reversed, here to show us that it’s good to be on guard and keep on our toes. Double check any information you receive this week, be it from doctors, coworkers, spiritual advisors or what have you. It’s not necessarily that people are trying to swindle you, but perhaps that they are unknowingly giving false information or not giving all of the information about a situation. Be sure you have the facts and are given the credit you deserve for  any work you have been doing. This card reminds us to be careful about openly accepting everything as truth. Really make sure that the information you are receiving this week is received in whole rather than in part. This will also require patience because you might have to do some work before really being well-informed. 

These cards might seem ominous, but really they’re reminders of things we should be consciously aware of every day. Having patience and quieting your mind this week will help you be awake to the situations around you and can provide you with true clarity.

April 6 – April 12 2015

We are greeted with reversed King and Queen of Cups, and The Emperor. 

The King of Cups being reversed is a lesson for us in taking risks. So often we find ourselves set in our comfort zone. We wonder why things don’t change or get better, but it’s because we don’t take the risks and chances to make things happen. Allow yourself to feel your inner passion, go for those dreams or goals, and push yourself out of your comfort zone. You’ll wonder why you never did, as so much can happen when you make the effort! 

We are guided by the reversed Queen of Cups as well. She’s here to show us two things. First, we must continue to show abundant love to ourselves. Especially during this time when we’re stepping outside of that comfortable space. Second, she’s here to remind us to be wary of the feelings of others. When taking on your own dreams and goals it can easily cause us to have an outlook that only involves ourselves, not others who are also involved in our lives. Those around us this week might come off as hurt or overlooked. Comfort whoever that may be and show them that same abundant love! Include them in your plan, they could possibly offer assistance. 

The Emperor is here because sometimes mind over heart is necessary to get things done. We have so much emotion in the first two cards that it is important to keep a sense of concentration and focus. With such passion fueling your efforts, it will be easy to handle things this way. This card also shows that because of the discipline that will come easier to you this week, you’ll find that it is a great time for meditation and spending time really delving into your own spiritual practices. 

Both of the cup cards are a reminder that this week will be an emotional one and that we can use our passionate emotions to move ourselves forward and care for others at the same time. These cards all speak of a balance between head and heart, masculine and feminine, emotion and logic. Using each of these energies to their fullest and finding a way to combine them to manifest your dreams and goals will move you on to the next step in the grand path that is your journey!

#FullMoonTarot – April 4 2015

Greetings lovelies! Today we have a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Libra, which is ruled by the card Justice. The affirmation for today is “I Adjust”. The card I have pulled today is the Queen of Pentacles. 

We are reminded by Justice that there is a necessary and required balance to all things. Today is a perfect day for finding that balance, finding that equality, that karmic energy. What does this have to do with the Queen of Pentacles? Perhaps it is telling us that we will go through adjustments with at home and financially. These necessary adjustments will assist in the natural balance of things in your life.

Being that this full moon brings with it a lot of masculine energy, it is only fitting that the card pulled today is the most feminine of all of the cards, again ensuing balance – an order to things.  You will find that with this full moon being eclipsed, today is a marvelous day for starting new or renewing yourself. Perhaps you have felt out of balance, or some area of your life has not been as comfortable as you had hoped for it to be. Well now is a good time to use the energy of the moon to guide you to a new place of abundant comfort and fruitfulness, a time of justice for you in your circumstances, be they financial or health or home life.

Remind yourself that you are not the only person today who might be making adjustments to their life. Give everyone a bit of kindness and love today, they probably need it just as much as you do. And wouldn’t kindness and love be a sweet bit of justice, a wonderful feeling of balance, for whatever injustice has been done? Remember “I Adjust” – we are all capable of adjusting.

“You must let what happens happen. Everything must be equal in your eyes, good and evil, beautiful and ugly, foolish and wise.” – Michael Ende, The Neverending Story

March 30 – April 5 2015

This week the universe brings our attention to the Two of Swords, Five of Pentacles, and Judgment. 

The Two of Swords has appeared because this week is one for making decisions and finding a balance within yourself. Emotions may overwhelm you at this time, and because of this it will take some quiet reflection to find the answer. Try to find a balance between how your emotions and thoughts affect your efforts this week. Learn to accept that you might not have all of the answers at first. That’s okay. It only means you will have to seek help from others and trust yourself.

Speaking of asking for help, the Five of Pentacles reminds us that we shouldn’t try to do everything on our own. You might feel alone this week. This card is the universe reminding you that you are not alone and you have the ability to change your situation. If you are feeling overwhelmed and your focus is only on the negatives, remember to turn yourself around and see that the help you need is right there. Do the best you can with what you have. You might think that everyone else has it all, but until you reach out from your own situation, you won’t truly know what others are going through. It could be the very same thing you’re going through. Be kind to yourself and others.

The Judgment card is here to advise us that although it’s easy to judge, try not to jump to conclusions or shut people or ideas down. With the Two of Swords suggesting a time of reflection, and the Five of Pentacles reminding you to be open to help, this judgment card says that this week could be a great time for spiritual awakening. When you are too quick to judge it  can be too easy to put down new ideas and spiritual thought that you might not have considered before. If others judge you for exploring a new spiritual path, remind yourself that we are each here to learn our own lessons  and it is not our place to judge others; we don’t know what their lesson is and it is not for us to decide.

Focus on yourself during this week and the decisions you need to make based on your path and journey. Be open to receiving help, and free yourself of judgment.

March 23 – March 29 2015

This week the Eight of Swords, The Empress reversed, and the King of Cups help you to face the challenge of learning to love yourself and working through fear. 

The path we take to work through fear begins first with a thought. The Eight of Swords encourages you to examine your thoughts actively and pull your hands down from your inner eyes to face the fears you have buried deep inside. Discover your fear, find the root of the negativity. Was it an event in your life? Was it something someone said to you? Is it how you view yourself? What is it that is keeping you from loving yourself? Identify this first and let it go before you can see the beautiful love you can manifest. 

The Empress is reversed because of the deep rooted issues keeping you from loving yourself. Before you can attempt to love others and help them with their lives, you must first work on yourself. This card encourages you to spend ample time meditating. You have great things to offer but first you must become more in tune with the loving energy that flows through you. Remind yourself that you are in control of your life and your reaction to every situation. If you learn to love every part of yourself, you can handle these situations and daily life much smoother. 

The King of Cups is here to remind you that you must be kind to yourself. You cannot learn to love yourself if you are constantly critical of yourself or holding yourself back. Sometimes learning to love yourself means allowing others to nurture you. The past might have made you weary of this, but shutting others out only leads to shutting yourself in. Set your fearful emotions down and pull apart that wall which is keeping you from experiencing love. 

Positive things can only happen if a positive environment is created. Manifest that positive, kind, loving, and nurturing environment through meditation, reflection and the release of fear. You will then see how much easier it is to love yourself and in turn love others.

Heal the Earth

All I’ve wanted to do lately is permeate the earth with Reiki energy. I keep thinking about how a friend of mine would go up into the mountains and tune rocks and boulders. Every day I feel a sort of pulse pushing me to tune the earth, and find myself craving an energy that would come if a vast number of us tuned the earth at the same time. Like a wave of beautiful energy soaking into the planet. Healing it. The mountains and the waters, the trees and the land – they’re in pain. Hurting from what has been done and what is being done right now. My heart aches for it. I am brought to tears from what the earth is showing me and it is deep. Treat the earth well. Cultivate it. Love it and it will love back. I encourage all of you to actively think on how you treat the earth and what it gives to you in return.

March 16 – March 22 2015

High Priestess, Nine of Cups and Three of Cups. With this week having a supermoon, new moon in Pisces, solar eclipse and the spring equinox, we’re in for a huge helping of potent energy! 

Right now the High Priestess card is telling of the necessity to use your intuition this week. This is a time for you to use your inner knowledge to guide you rather than what you consciously understand. Pay attention to signs and synchronicities that show up, as well as what your dreams are trying to tell you. These things might seem small but they are reminders of the path you are on. This card is very spiritual and being that the energy is so strong this week, it is a perfect time to renew your spiritual self.  The new moon and the equinox are huge influences, and both are excellent sources of energy for starting anew. If you’re starting the week with questions, this card is here to remind you that you already know the answers, have faith.

The Nine of Cups is here to tell you that the positive thinking and intent you’ve been investing is finally coming full circle. If you’re wondering what you’re supposed to do, just accept the positive energy you are receiving and allow it to flow through you. Really this just means that sometimes good things do happen if you’ve put enough positive thought and effort into it. You’ve been through some rough waters for a while now and it’s come time for things to settle down and the sun to shine! Bask in it and let the light radiate from you! 

The Three of Cups is here to advise you to take some of that infectious spring equinox energy and put it toward any number of things from reuniting with people, hobbies, routines, healthy habits, job searches, well-being, or long lost friends! Use this time of positive new energy to consider what the next step of your path is and where you see yourself going. This could be keeping busy with ongoing projects or taking a needed time of reflection before the hustle of spring really rushes in! 

Let the goodness flow! #loveandlight
