Don’t be afraid to shine today if you find yourself centre stage with the spotlight turned on you! This isn’t the time to play the shrinking violet or hide your light under a bushel. Maybe you would prefer to keep a low profile and deflect the admiration coming your way? But this attention and acclaim is well deserved and attained through hard work and dedication, so step into your power and claim it!
You may find yourself in the spotlight today, shining like the star that you are! Other people naturally step aside and allow you to take centre stage as your burning passion and inspiration is evident for all to see. It also could be that you need to defend yourself or your ideas against opposition from others. Resistance will fall away however as others can see the righteousness of your path.
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.
Hmmm, when I look at this card my immediate thought today is of being blocked and trapped. Whichever way she looks there is no escape. In front of her is amassed what looks like a menacing battalion of oars, preventing her passage. Also it seems that it’s not apparent who, or what is ganging up against her and impeding her progress. This makes the opposition harder to deal with in many ways when you don’t know exactly what you’re up against.
Behind her there seems to be a huge storm brewing with bolts of lightening zigzagging the sky and dark menacing clouds. It looks as if there is no going back either!
As this card talks about creative endeavours and projects it could be that this is where a sense of feeling stuck is most apparent. As there are no actual adversaries showing themselves it could be that these problems and hurdles have more tenure in the mind than in the actual real world. Perhaps these are perceived roadblocks on the road to success? Because these limits and blocks are remaining concealed, beneath the surface of the water, it could be that they are unconscious obstacles to success.
Maybe this little mermaid needs to examine her own limiting beliefs and lack of self belief in her talents and gifts. She may find that the squadron of oars lined up against her may then glide silently back under the ocean waves to allow her unimpeded passage.
