Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

May 2024 Musings... NEXT Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Intensive: 4th June 2024 NEXT Bringing Moon Soul Retrieval 30-Day Ritual Intensive: 6th June 2024 NEXT Luring Moon Abundance 30-Day Intensive: 23rd May 2024 YouTube: Latest Mayastar Sonic Meditation with 5D Lemurian Light-Codes Mayastar Membership Buy mayastar Music On Itunes Buy Mayastar Artwork, Gifts, Clothing & Mugs 20th May 2024…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. And here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Crow Tarot for our medium today. This deck features the traditional symbolism with a twist: all of the characters featured are crows! It creates some interesting new interpretations of the tarot archetypes. And as a Priestess of the Northern Tradition, I work a great deal with the runes and therefore with Odin, and this deck resonates well when I’m connecting with those energies. This week I’m performing the Yggdrasil Intensive which includes energy transmissions for each of the runes so I’m vibing strongly with those runic currents right now. I’m sure these cards will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in The Lovers. This card expresses self-love & the acceptance & integration of the shadow self – which is an essential part of the healing journey. The presence of this card in this position indicates opportunities for progress on the spiritual path through processing difficult experiences from the past by showing yourself love. Compassion is your route to joy this week so set aside time to tend to your self-care. Whatever that looks like! It may be a home-spa day, or a long walk in the countryside, or perhaps it’s a box of chocolates and a Netflix binge in your pyjamas at the end of the week. Be patient with yourself, and focus your intentions on peace, love and hope. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of Page of Pentacles. This isn’t a negative card but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspects of the archetype & considering how it might play against the dominant energetic forces elucidated by the first card in particular. This card is about planning & strategizing. It’s about anticipating problems & working around them. And planning can be vital. But it can also be a bit of a trap sometimes. You can end up “what if-ing” your way out of possibilities & talking yourself out of action. Too much Page of Pentacles energy can lead to procrastination. To avoid this hazard, this week try to end any planning work with some kind of action. If you’re writing a new to- do list, make sure you complete & check out two items from it immediately so you don’t break your flow. This week, actions speak louder than words! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 20th May 2024…4 of Swords…Set aside time for rest, relaxation & recuperation. Balance is found by creating the energetic space for yourself to breathe. The Universe reminds you that making time to do nothing can help you to unwind enough to recognise what’s truly important. Affirm: “My heart is a sanctuary of limitless love & light” Tuesday 21st May 2024…7 of Pentacles…When you’ve done all you can do, it’s time to rest & patiently await the fruits of your labour. Maintain your highest intentions while you wait. The Universe reminds you that balance means working when there’s work to do, but resting when there’s not. Affirm: “The future is aligned with hope & happiness” Wednesday 22nd May 2024…6 of Cups…Give yourself the gift of light- heartedness by finding the funny side of things. Indulge the inner child by doing something for the sheer enjoyment of it today. The Universe reminds you that your childhood innocence reflects the authenticity of your soul. Lean into levity to remember yourself. Affirm: “My life inspires joy & jubilation” Thursday 23rd May 2024…9 of Cups…Make a wish because the Universe is feeling generous today! Demonstrations of abundance & prosperity abound & surround you. Appreciate all that brings you comfort, cosiness & contentment. The Universe reminds you that it’s the little things that are the big things in the end. Affirm: “Step by step, I dance towards my dreams” Friday 24th May 2024…Temperance…Refine your spirit by setting aside some sacred space for contemplation, relaxation & healing. Disconnecting yourself from social demands & spending time with yourself is essential for your spiritual maintenance. Today, the Universe reminds you to stop doing things long enough to just be yourself. Affirm: “All is working out & working well” Saturday 25th May 2024…Queen of Cups…Carve out some space for peace & quiet today. Indulge in a relaxing bath ritual & surround yourself in a sumptuous self-love mantle. The Universe reminds you that you are beloved, beautiful & blessed in every moment. Don’t doubt your divinity Child of the Universe. Affirm: “My life is in flow & I flourish fruitfully” Sunday 26th May 2024…Justice…Words can hurt, harm & hinder so be careful how you talk to yourself today. Be considerate of your feelings & be fair to yourself. Things aren’t as black & white as they seem & you’re doing brilliantly! The Universe reminds you that you’re an extraordinary person, just like everyone else! Affirm: “Limitless light suffuses my soul” 13th May 2024…I’ve chosen The Wild Unknown Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This is a nature-based deck and usually one I reach for in autumn, but lately, I’ve been working with the lightworker animal empowerments system as part of my personal ritual practice & this deck includes many trees and animal characters that express some of the wilder aspects of the traditional archetypes. I also enjoy the paper-like finish of these cards – it makes them easier to work with in low light conditions during ritual! And I’m sure this deck will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week, for the purpose of progressing the spiritual path, is reflected in the Ace of Pentacles. In this position, the positive attributes of the card are emphasised and indicate opportunities for manifesting wealth and abundance in all areas. Wealth and abundance are often equated with financial prosperity but in fact, true wealth and abundance includes fulfilment in many areas including personal happiness, relationships and having opportunities for growth in your life. The Ace of Pentacles is like a seed ready to germinate and express its divine potential; aligning with this archetype this week means recognising you can grow, evolve and flourish when you allow your divinity to shine. Be open to the idea that you already possess the power needed to exceed yourself this week. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 9 of Wands. This isn’t a negative card, but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. The presence of this card warns us that fear or rigidity could block us from recognising the demonstrations of abundance around us this week. If you notice your thoughts seem more aligned with your past than your future, set aside some time for meditation, relaxation & consideration to get yourself back on track. If you draw all your beliefs, feelings & thoughts from the past, then your future will be a recreation of the past. If that’s not your goal, it’s time to recalibrate! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 13th May 2024…5 of Wands…Dodge the drama & cut off from the conflict today by staying in your lane & prioritising your inner peace. Your time is precious & not everyone that demands it is deserving of it! Be discerning. The Universe reminds you that conflict requires your participation. Affirm: “I am aligned with positive & progressive change” Tuesday 14th May 2024…8 of Pentacles…Channel your energy into developing skills to find your grounding today. Artistic projects offer opportunities for spiritual expression. Your inner light can be shared with the world through your creativity. The Universe reminds you that every act of will is an act of magick. Affirm: “My heart is open to the magickal & miraculous” Wednesday 15th May 2024…Page of Swords…Where you place your attention, you place your power. Rise above fear & limitation by opening your mind to new possibilities. The Universe reminds you that every day brings you closer to happiness when you choose the words & ways that align with your soul. Affirm: “I dance towards my divine destiny” Thursday 16th May 2024…4 of Pentacles…Hold onto your power by being careful where you put your energy. Protecting yourself from gossip, drama & negativity is an important part of self-care. The Universe reminds you that keeping healthy boundaries is part of love. Affirm: “I pursue the path of healing & wholeness. One step at a time” Friday 17th May 2024…The Emperor…You have the power to make things happen! You’re in the driving seat of your life & today’s your day for getting things done. Stay in your lane so that distractions don’t dampen your determination. The Universe reminds you that discipline & doggedness demonstrate your dominance. Affirm: “Sovereignty is my strength. Success is my story” Saturday 18th May 2024…The Star…Look up! Celestial bodies are aligned in your favour & encouraging you to make a soul-felt wish today. Fortune favours the free & fabulous, so choose to shine like the star you are! The Universe reminds you that nothing can dim the light that shines from within. Affirm: “Mine is the light of limitless love” Sunday 19th May 2024…Queen of Wands…Your confidence shines today. Pursue your passions with style & a winning smile! Don’t be afraid to do things differently. The Universe reminds you that it falls in love with a stubborn heart. Be uncompromising & keep progressing your path with positivity. Affirm: “Everything I touch turns to gold” 6th May 2024…I’ve chosen the Ceccoli Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck was created with pre-existing artwork so it depicts the tarot archetypes in non-traditional ways which opens up new layers of meaning. The art style is sweet but also dark in places and always evocative, enchanting and esoteric. It’s been a favourite deck of mine for many years now – especially for tarot meditations and pathworkings because the Ceccoli world is one that really resonates deeply with me. I’m sure it will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today! So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 9 of Pentacles. This is a card of independence, sovereignty and personal success! And in this position it reflects opportunities for finding your grounding, progressing your healing path, and increasing your financial well-being. As an earth card, it also can indicate greater comfort and happiness within the home. So this week is a great time for bringing your attention to your finances and practical ways of tending to your health. Focusing on eating healthy foods, devoting time to your plans for work or home management, and allowing time to celebrate your successes could all be excellent ways to tap into this energy. Gratitude is an essential component in manifesting true happiness – and simply looking around yourself and making a mental note of the things that you are grateful for can help you to align with a success mindset. Make your daily prayer one of simply saying “Thank you” to the Universe this week and your life will expand towards your dreams. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 4 of Cups. This is not necessarily a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. This card cautions us to guard against apathy and ingratitude. Not recognising our blessings can cause us to focus too much on what we lack. That kind of focus can prevent us from recognising the supportive healing energies and opportunities the Universe presents to us. So be careful not to fall into the trap of negative thinking this week. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 6th May 2024…2 of Swords…If you’ve been holding back or sitting on the fence, it’s time to dissolve the deadlock & make a decision today! Define your destiny by doing things differently. The Universe reminds you that confidence in your divine self isn’t misplaced. You have reserves of untapped potential within. Affirm: “I align with progress & prosper prolifically” Tuesday 7th May 2024…Page of Cups…Tune into the whispers of your heart today because your higher-self is sharing important guidance with you through symbols, numbers & dreams. The Universe reminds you that you are a spiritual being having a human experience & your soul is always in communion with the divine. Affirm: “My source is bountiful & blessed” Wednesday 8th May 2024…7 of Cups…Open your mind to magick by entertaining eclectic & enchanting ideas. Visualise the future of your dreams to explore your heart’s true desires. The Universe reminds you to live from your imagination, not your history. All things are possible if you believe all things are possible. Affirm: “I am open to manifesting miracles & magnificence” Thursday 9th May 2024…10 of Cups…Extravagant energies encourage you to dream bigger! Blessings & beneficence abound & bountiful benevolence is demonstrated in your life. The Universe reminds you that bringing your focus to what you enjoy can be a perfect prayer. Celebrate the small things & big things will happen today. Affirm: “I am prospered & protected by divine love” Friday 10th May 2024…Ace of Wands…Whatever you do today, do it with power & passion! Jump in with both feet & be ok with making waves. Those around you are inspired by your boundless brilliance. The Universe reminds you that wherever you direct your energy, things enlarge, expand & evolve. Affirm: “I decide my destiny with action” Saturday 11th May 2024…5 of Pentacles…Empower yourself by consciously moving your mind away from thoughts of lack, limitation & lamentation. Define your direction by visualising positive outcomes & inspire yourself by imagining just how brilliantly things could go! The Universe reminds you that energy flows where your attention goes. Affirm: “I manifest miracles & magick” Sunday 12th May 2024…8 of Swords…Open your eyes to the world that exists beyond the bounds of your beliefs. Move beyond the tyranny of trepidation by mastering your mental state. The Universe reminds you that courage means feeling the fear and doing it anyway! Affirm: “I leave behind my limitations day, by day, by day” -------------------------------------------- www.facebook.com/annalouisemay.muse www.facebook.com/mayastaracademy www.twitter.com/mayastar www.youtube.com/c/mayastarofficial www.pinterest.com/alm_mayastar www.instagram.com/annalouisemay www.annalouisemay.wordpress.com I wish you a magnificent week!
