This week has plenty of MAJOR help to transform your possibilities into sweeter dreams come true. ENJOY!
Card of the Week – Four of Cups
Any time you get a four it’s about putting things on a firm foundation, the four corners so to speak. With vessels we have the opportunity to get clear about what you truly desire. Not what ‘should’ you want, or what you used to settle for but instead it’s those undeclared wishes that need to see the light of day. Pull ’em out, dust ’em off and let those babies run free!
Having trouble with that? What did you want to be when you grew up – what did you love doing? You know, those activities, dreams and wishes that helped you pick out Halloween costumes, created Christmas lists and birthday wishes. Where are those discarded and repressed feelings tucked away? Let each day give you more insight into the original you.
Day One – The Woodward
This card signals you have the strength to face what frightens you, confront the shadows and trust in your ability to prevail in the face of your fears. ‘A coward dies a thousand deaths…’ Today start your week sensing how strong you’ve had to be, how brave. You can win the day, win any challenge when you simply stop fighting it. Let the Truth be what it is and dismantle what you think it means. Persuade yourself to believe there is more to what’s happening, and a great deal more strength in you than in any challenge in front of you.
Take Action: Doubt your doubts today my friend. The fear brain will tenderly and cleverly lie to you so you don’t see how powerful you are in creating your world. Doubt those voices and believe in YOU.
Day Two – Eight of Stones
Eights always signal and action that has an equal and opposite reaction. With the stones involved it signifies tangible, measurable results. Your work will be seen, praised and noteworthy. You are crafting something not just reacting to it all. Slow down long enough to recognize that every moment of today is part of the rich tapestry of your life. Pieces of today will reflect beautifully back to you for years to come when you let yourself be present and witness what you are creating. Each feeling, action, thought and inspiration is part of the symphony of your world. Let today be rich with awareness of how masterful you are at the life you are living.
Take Action: Run your hands down your legs, over your arms and feel your breath moving in and out. You are the artist, life is your canvas where your masterpiece is unfolding.
Day Three – King of Vessels
The King of Vessels is the magician of the Minor Arcana. The rational, masculine King paired with the receptive, feminine vessels is a combo that yields MAGIC. Water takes the shape of the container so today check in with your container to see how well it fits you. Selectively switch situations and ideas around to allow for a bigger glass with more water in it. Your senses give you a tremendous amount of free flowing insight, then let the King take command and make good use of the insight. The day will end up with more in it than you began with this morning. Then just let all the ripples move out from there while the shift reveals to you a bigger pond to swim in for you.
Take Action: Place your left hand on your heart and your right hand on your belly for three deep slow breaths. Then ask yourself what it is that you most need to know today to allow the magic to work. Watch while the information surprises you!
Day Four – Page of Stones
The Page represent our inner children or starting point. Stones are concrete actions and results. This card heralds tangible ways to connect your inner dreams with your outer world in a measurable ways. Set new goals today, ones more in line with the bigger awareness of you emerging out of the old. Start there, giving yourself a milepost you are aiming for so you can measure your progress. Keep it simple and clear, this card doesn’t like overwhelm. Take a bite out of what’s next, chew and then swallow. Pause before you bite off the next goal.
Take Action: If you have a resolution list or plan of any kind, pull it out and cross off those things that are too small or limited for where you are going now that you have new goals. If you don’t have any list. Take a couple of minutes and give yourself three mile markers that you want to aim for by the end of March. Harness the astrology right now, and it will reap bigger rewards for you when you do!
Day Five – Seven of Bows
This seven says you are on higher ground then you think you are. We get used to battling for things, pushing against obstacles, so much so that we look for them even when they are no where to be found. Relax, let it be a bit easier today. There is space for resting and taking stock of what you’ve done and what’s left to do. Don’t make it harder than it has to be. Where do you feel better testing yourself against and opponent and arguing for a cause? Now imagine yourself in a tug of war with the other side and picture letting go of the rope. Just let it drop, whew! No struggle required anymore… Finding that hard to do? Practice, practice, practice.
Take Action: Walk yourself through your own version of the guided imagery of the tug of war. Get the details down, what are you wearing, what words are pinned to the rope being yanked back and forth. Really play with the picture. Then see yourself letting go of the rope and your opponent falling back shocked at the easy release of pressure. You win today when you don’t PLAY.
Day Six – Six of Vessels
The Sixth of Vessels is the perfect follow up to the release of struggle yesterday and the new goals from the day before. Six always represents synthesis, healing, a whole coming together from all the broken pieces. Today is about letting the Universe give you a kiss on your cosmic boo boo. Where ever it hurts, there is comfort and kindness to help ease any pain. This is the chicken soup and a good movie or book. Let yourself be nurtured, cossetted and loved today. It’s good for the soul.
Take Action: Eat something comforting today. Nourish your body with a treat that means something special to you. Chocolate, macaroni and cheese, pizza – whatever is a favorite you rely on, give yourself your best version of it today.
Day Seven – Seven of Vessels
The Seven of Vessels means one thing is the Wildwood Deck and another in traditional Tarot. I want you to have both meanings. The first is spiritual gifts are offered when you pay attention and let the unconscious messages from the Universe, fill you up with insight. There are almost too many waves of information flooding in, but trust your ability to flow with it. Secondly, not everything you receive will be a fit. Just because you let the insight into your life means that you will continue to work with it. Some insights are meant to offer you something in the moment and pass on to whatever is next. Let its passing carry the sorrow of any endings, failures or disappointments with it.
Take Action: Create a little ritual for yourself today. Picture disappointment as an object in your hands. Then flush the object down the toilet and wave goodbye.
