Today’s card is about abundance, prosperity, creativity and nurturing. Self expression is also very important at this time. The Empress card embodies the feminine principle. She is the womb from which all life springs.
For the second day running the Seven of Swords has put in an appearance! This seems to reiterate the need for vigilance and awareness of the motives of others. Is everything as it seems or is someone trying to conceal something or deceive in some way? Equally it could be that we have something to hide or that we are keeping some information under wraps. Sometimes it is necessary to play our cards close to our chest depending on the situation or circumstances we find ourselves in.
The randomly selected card for the upcoming week is the Seven of Wands.
The first thing that comes to mind on studying this card is the need to stand firm in the face of opposition. If you need to defend yourself this week, maintain courage in your convictions and make sure that you remain true to yourself. If you have to stand alone, stand tall and be a beacon in the darkness!
It could also be that you have lost some of the fire in your belly and your fighting spirit? Maybe you need to add a bit of spice to your life and shake up a stale, boring routine. Let your own flame burn brightly and honour your passions. Find the fire and confidence inside either to stand up for your beliefs or who you are as a person, or to find it again when you’re in a dark place.
This card could also indicate that it is your turn to shine and take centre stage in the limelight, and to bask in the admiration and respect of others.
This burning torch will always provide a quiet but powerful light, illuminating our inner guidance, inspiration and direction. Focus on it and forge ahead with faith and self belief.
You may get the feeling today that someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Are they hiding something…..or just being economical with the truth? Or it could be that you are overreacting with suspicion and paranoia which is actually misplaced. Be guided by your gut feelings about which one it is today.
Remember today that you are a child of the universe and you can make things happen in your life and manifest a heaven on earth. Whatever you see outside is inside….’as within so without’. So if you don’t like what you see know that you can change things, but first you need to be the change you wish to see in the world. The Universe is simply a mirror which faithfully reflects back your beliefs about yourself and life!
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.
