This week you could have a revelation (or even a revolution) in the way you see something! Maybe a new way of viewing the world will be unveiled so that you never see things in the same way again. A totally revolutionary paradigm may be revealed in the most profound of ways. Maybe the underlying structure of the Universe may become apparent for the briefest of moments, but this glimpse of the way things really work will be enough to change your way of being in the world forever.
It could feel like the end of the world this week as you contemplate the painful ending of something that was important to you. Sometimes we need to wallow in these feelings of loss, and retreat into the darkness for a while. When we are ready to re-emerge, a glance upwards will show us that all is not lost….the cups are still standing, and intact, and there is light pouring through above us. Life goes on, and hope springs eternal.
Listen to your instincts this week, and if you don’t feel like doing something, or you do feel inexplicably drawn in a particular direction, then follow that guidance wherever it leads you. Don’t second guess yourself….you know best.
This week, use your considerable powers to make manifest something that you desire. You have all the necessary tools at your disposal and the wherewithal to bring everything together to achieve your aim. Your connection between the spiritual and the physical is sharply focused at the moment so go make things happen!
The card I drew today from The Wild Unknown is the Six of Cups. This card seems to hark back to a much richer and rosier past. The tangle of multicoloured roots seem to suggest that when we look back with nostalgia, things seem more vibrant and exciting.
However, when we don our rose tinted specs sometimes we can have a distorted and skewed vision of what came before, making the present seem dull and lack lustre in comparison. Especially if we had a happy and contented early life, it can seem as if some of the shine is being taken off as we age. Nothing seems as fresh or new anymore and we become jaded and cynical.
However, what we must remember is that all any of us has is the “now”, and if we spend all our time wishing to be transported back to a magical and mythical time of the past, we are in danger of completely missing our present and future.
Of course it’s great to look back on the happy memories of the past; just not so great if we get trapped there and waste the opportunity to make more awesome memories in the here and now.
If after careful and realistic consideration you genuinely believe that all your best times are behind you, then it’s time to reintegrate some of the people, places and activities that used to bring you joy! Think about some of your former passions and how you can reincorporate them into your life today. Start making new memories that you can look back on with warm, fuzzy feelings in years to come.
You are positively overflowing with brilliant creative ideas this week! You may feel as if your cup quite literally “runneth over”, to the extent that it may feel a little overwhelming. Make sure that your inspirations don’t evaporate into the ether like a wisp of smoke. Be sure to write them down so that you can refer back to them on days when your imagination is less prolific. Perhaps take the time to act on one of your ideas straight away? Baby steps in the right direction can eventually add up to major change and achievement.
Whatever you’re tackling today, make sure you channel your inner Mother of Wands and do it with gusto and passion. Be authentic and true to yourself and demonstrate your confidence and creativity to others whatever you are involved in. This alignment with your true nature is highly attractive and charismatic so don’t be afraid to be your unique self as others will be drawn to your irresistible energy.
This week may be busy, busy, busy! It may be difficult to stay focused as events force you to keep on changing direction and going off at a tangent. It is possible that there may be revelations which come completely out of the blue and force you to re-evaluate situations which you thought you had a handle on. Stay on your toes during this time period, and be poised to ‘turn on a sixpence’ if required.
This week could require you to blend together qualities and ingredients in just the right ratio to get the results you are aiming for. Rather like baking a cake, often we need to skilfully add a bit of this and a dash of something else to get the mix just right so that it will rise in the oven. For us this will involve the elements of earth, air, fire and water and how we combine them to get the best results in our lives. Do we need more earthy pragmatism, or a few drops of fiery inspiration in order to bring our mix to life? Of perhaps we need to get our logical, rational head on, or be more compassionate and empathic. By blending different qualities in just the right amounts we can perform alchemy!
Below the dove, black coloured birds or even bats rise up towards the outstretched wings of the almost angelic looking presence.
There is an overwhelming feeling of peace, freedom and redemption contained within this card as the birds appear to emerge from the tangled mass of darkness and heed the call from above.
This week it is time to heed this call in our own lives. The time has come to leave behind the difficulties and disappointments of the past and move forwards towards a more promising and uplifting future.
Anything that is holding you back from making peace with yourself and others can now be gently released into the light. Even if there are regrets and mistakes in your past that you have struggled to let go of, the Judgement card signals that you are forgiven and accepted into the protection and safety of a higher power (whatever this means to you).
Any sense of not deserving or being worthy of freedom, peace of mind and redemption are utterly false. The dove on this card says that everyone is forgiven and free to rise up into this magical place of peace, love and wisdom. The dove makes no judgement and welcomes all comers with the same open arms (wings).
The slate is wiped clean and we are free to break free from the murky recesses of the past and begin again….clean, purified and absolved.
