Today be meticulous and tenacious in your thinking and actions. Cross the ‘t’s’ and dot the ‘i’s’ and remember the adage that if a job’s worth doing it’s worth doing well. This is not a day for big picture thinking but for homing in on the tiny details.
Today may feel confusing and chaotic and as if it’s impossible to see the wood for the trees. Perhaps all the joy seems to have been sucked out of life, and things feel as if they have completely fallen apart? Where to begin with trying to pick up the pieces and start again? If you feel exhausted and overwhelmed then take a step back, rest up for a little while until you restore your energy and feel able to move forward again.
The tarot suit of Cups is all about emotion, feelings and relationships, and so the Mother of Cups is the queen of this realm. She is powerful and fierce whilst simultaneously being protective and nurturing. She is depicted as a swan in this deck which perfectly describes her ability to be compassionate and empathic, but also extremely aggressive if pushed.
She is highly sensitive to the vibes around her, so much so that her insightful intuition can border on the prophetic or psychic at times. This gives her a reputation for being deep and mysterious, inhabiting as she does the realms of the unconscious and subconscious mind. Here dreams are dreamt and magic happens.
She is associated with the unknown…..where gut instinct and perceptive hunches are the modus operandi. A place of spirituality and receptivity which is symbolised in this card by the sparkling blue, pink and purple stars which twinkle in the darkness of the night sky behind her.
When this card appears it is time to take note of your dreams and intuition by turning your attention inward. Use creative visualisation and magic to bend reality to mirror your deeply held wishes.
There is a time and place for rationality and logic, but this week tap into the traits of the Mother of Cups within yourself. Use her emotional sensitivity, intuition and empathy and trust that in the situations you encounter this week they will be the way to achieve the best results.
This is the second time this card has come up this week! It obviously has a pertinent message to impart. This time the symbol which grabs my attention is the beautiful golden sun emanating from the Third Eye area. This tells me that today it is vitally important to realise that all the answers and wisdom we need are already within us. All we need to do is quieten down our conscious mind so that we can access our innate intuition and gut feelings! Easier said than done in the busyness of day to day life where our existence is ruled by deadlines, pressure and constant striving to achieve. So today take just ten minutes to come back to yourself by closing your eyes, taking a few deep breaths and reconnecting with the wisdom of your heart. It might be the best thing you do today!
Today may feel like a long, hard slog. It’s as if you can’t see the wood for the trees and everything is weighing heavily upon your shoulders. Maybe you’ve become a victim of your own success, and tasks which you used to enjoy and find satisfying are now becoming onerous and burdensome. Sometimes if you make a hobby into a career it can take all the fun and enjoyment out of it and add unneeded pressure. Today, see if you can do something purely for the joy of it to lift yourself out of the doldrums.
