Force/Strength ~ Fall in Love With Yourself--Thorns and All!

IMG_6007.jpg

Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is Force (also known as “Strength” in many decks), representing: Patience, desire, vulnerability, surrender and self-love. The Force card is associated with the Fairytale Beauty and the Beast…Once upon a time, a maiden encountered a ferocious lion! Her first instinct was to run away. Instead, the innocent maiden decided to befriend the beast. Gently and patiently, she got to know the Lion, ultimately falling in love. In return, the lion surrendered to her. 

The lion represents desire, our inner-beast. Here strength comes in vulnerability, as you give yourself permission to fall in love with yourself—thorns and all! This is a journey of self-acceptance. Consider lifestyle choices benefiting a more authentic you. Don’t force anything. When in doubt, step back and give yourself time to become clear. Be sweet with yourself. Patience is your greatest ally now. 

Wishing you a gentle week!

Magical New Moon in Pisces Wednesday!

Happy New Moon in Pisces! Lady Luna is quite happy in the sign of the Fish, illuminating our deeper feelings and emotions, and highlighting the compassionate and imaginative qualities this sign is known for. What’s even more special about Wednesday’s New Moon is that it is joined by Neptune, Pisces’ ruling planet. Neptune’s influence adds an extra dose of watery energy to the mix, encouraging us to swim deeply in it’s soulful waters.

This New Moon is an excellent time go within and commune with what lies beneath the surface of everyday reality. Meditative activities are especially potent now. The Pisces New Moon brings out our creative and artistic qualities as well, inspiring us to play in the realm of fantasy and imagination. Give yourself permission to write poetry, paint, play and listen to music. Whatever feeds your soul!

During this time, we also have the beginning of the Mercury Retrograde (through March 28th) also in Pisces, again calling us to go within and reflect on how we move (or swim!) through the world. The soulful combination of the Mercury Retrograde and New Moon in Pisces, can sooth and even bring healing to our daily tensions and stresses, as it offers a deeper perspective and new clarity. This magical period brings great meaning to the concept of being “in the world, but not of the world”. Something to ruminate on!

Happy Illuminations!

The Five of Swords ~ Don't Overthink it!

IMG_5913.jpg

Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Five of Swords, representing: Mental chaos, conflict, worry and perspective. The Five of Swords indicates that you are overthinking something, to the point where you lose any sense of true clarity. No matter how you look at it--up, down, right or left--you can’t think yourself out of this situation. This is a moment to step back, and view your life from a greater perspective. 

Your mind is too powerful to waste on defeating thoughts. Especially, when the situation you are focused on is likely in flux, with the outcome to be determined at another time. Although you may want to figure everything out, this is not the moment. Know that you will have more clarity when the dust settles. Channel your mental stress into practices that ease your mind: meditation, reflection and grounding practices. New clarity and insights will be revealed as you get more perspective.

Wishing you a worry-free week!

 The Fool is a divine rebel, defying all limitations to create his life in big, bold strokes, never hesitating to color outside the lines. He is a compelling force, encouraging you to fearlessly act on what inspires you. Some may call him crazy, others say he’s divinely inspired. Perhaps it’s a bit of both! Either way, your inspiration is calling, and you must take the risk. “How could you not?” The Fool will say. There is no guarantee of outcomes, it’s more about your willingness to boldly go after what calls you. By doing so the Fool ensures you will never be the same again! 

Wishing you a fearless and inspiring week!
