June 2021 Musings... Current Special Offer: Lemurian Indigo Connections Attunement Special Strawberry Supermoon Killing Moon Cycle - 24th June Strawberry Supermoon Solstice Portal Magickal Intesnive Gallery Updated In June 12th June 2021…I’ve felt like I’ve been on holiday all week because of the first summer heatwave in the UK! I don’t function well with the heat usually but this year I bought a fancy air-cooler, and so far, I have to admit, it works so well that I’m kicking myself for not getting one last year when I first looked into them! The summery vibes have had me reaching for Paulina Cassidy tarot decks a lot, and today, I’ve chosen the Spiritsong Tarot for our guidance. It’s an animal-based deck but Paulina’s ethereal style makes it feel quite gentle and whimsical! Let’s explore… The dominant energy making its presence felt for us over the coming days is reflected in the 4 of Crystals (Pentacles). This card features a beaver, focused on his work and manifesting the dam of his dreams! This card can indicate the holding and demonstrating of one’s personal power; the creation of healthy boundaries and the independence that comes when you put your life in order. It can be a fine balance to create a structure in your life that will help you to flourish. But routines, rules and rituals can help you to achieve your goals and create a sense of security and accomplishment. Now may be a good time to take an overview of your life and see if there are areas that would benefit from a bit more structure…and perhaps, see if there are any that could benefit from a little de-structuring to. The second card offers us the key to obtaining the real benefits of the first card and in this case it’s represented by the Temperance card. This card emphasises the recommendations of the first card: looks for opportunities to bring more balance to your life by making adjustments to your routine that will serve you better. Aiming to fill every minute of every day with productivity is counter- productive; if you’re very fixed on scheduling your work time, why not be a bit fixed on scheduling your rest time too? And finally, the third card reveals the potential challenges we might face. And today, these are reflected in the shadow-aspect of the Nine of Shells (Cups) cards. This is the card of wishes coming true and deep fulfilment. Even in its shadow-aspect, it’s not all doom and gloom because it indicates the possibility of fast manifestations and powerful healing! However, with the high energies of the Strawberry Supermoon Solstice Portal, there’s magick in the air! So, this card cautions you to be careful what you wish for because right now, your thoughts are creating your reality at an accelerated rate. It’s a great time for personal development, healing and focusing on what you want to manifest for yourself and your life because there’s great potential for miraculous change and demonstrations of abundance in all areas of your life. If you’re hoping to manifest a change for the better, now’s your divinely ordained opportunity! This seems very timely as the first newsletter detailing the Strawberry Supermoon Solstice Portal magickal intensive options is going out today! This month is building up to a beautiful finish and I hope you’ll all make the most of the potent energetic tide in whatever way feels right for you. And with that, I wish you health and wealth, peace and prosperity, and I’ll see you again soon. XXX 9th June 2021...Having a busy but exciting week at Mayastar HQ! Preparations for the Strawberry Supermoon Solstice magickal intensives are well underway! This cosmic configuration creates an opportunity to tap into powerful energetic tides, and I’ll be harnessing the limitless flow to effect profound and progressive change for my clients! If you’d like to know more, please visit: 7- Day Strawberry Supermoon Solstice Intensive with Goddess Freya and the Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Ritual Intensive. And now, it’s time to find out what the cards can tell us about our direction over the coming days! I’ve chosen the Affirmators Tarot for today. I was feeling frivolous and light-hearted and this deck really resonated with me. It has brilliantly coloured, almost childish images of animals on each card. But far from being a challenge to read, it’s a dream because it follows the traditional Rider-Waite system of meaning. Let’s explore! The Ace of Pentacles represents the dominant energy influencing us at the moment. This card represents the potential we can tap into over the next few days. And the Ace of Pentacles speaks to us of success and abundance. This might be financial, but it might also be in your sense of meaning and satisfaction in life. There’s opportunity for increased contentment, security and wealth! If you’re thinking of starting a new hobby, looking for a new job or exploring the possibility of setting up your own busines, now might be a good time to at least start learning the skills you’ll need. It could be a good time to take a course that will improve your career or take your hobby to the next level. The second card offers us the key to the promise of the first card. This represents the energy that we should focus on to align us more closely with the first and to manifest the blessings and potential. Today, this is The Chariot. It recommends us to balance our intentions and drives; maintain some focus and don’t allow yourself to be swayed too much by what’s going on around you. Stay in your lane and stay the course. But also, stay present: there might be a tendency for your mind to wander or your actions to be confused and inconsistent because you’re trying to do too much at once, and if you give into it, your progress may be underwhelming! You can choose where you put your attention and you’ll find you naturally steer towards it as long as you maintain that focus. The final card is the 4 of Wands and in this position, it cautions us against hastiness and arrogance. It’s not time to rest on your laurels just yet! That time is coming, but it’s not right now. Whatever you do, don’t let your ego get caught up in the excitement of focusing on results, you can make the most of the opportunities the universe is unfolding in your life by pacing yourself and keeping your head. Wonderful! Please take what vibes with you and leave the rest behind as you go about your day; and come back again soon for more musings X 5th June 2021...Welcome to my latest blog update! Before I get onto the general updates and tarot, here’s a link for the current special offer for Mayastar: the Dolphin Rainbow Chakra Healing Course can be purchased with a £40 saving for the next 48 hours only! This is an energy healing modality I worked with intensively in May as part of a Lemurian healing ritual. It’s excellent for emotional healing, inner-child work and if, like me, you feel drawn to ancient Lemuria and Atlantis, these energies will inspire and relieve the soul! I’m also working on the Maya Magickal special offers that will come out in the middle of the month. These will harness the energetic tides of the Summer Solstice, and the Super Moon on the 24th. Around this time there will be a Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Ritual Intensive; the comprehensive, deep karmic healing & release from negative, hindering and baneful karmic- bonds, that’s my most popular magickal intensive. It exerts a profoundly healing effect on all areas of life because all areas of life are subject to the influence of subtle energy. The energies around us affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Many people find their financial prosperity or relationships experience blocks and bad fortune when negative energetic influences are at play. So, it’s one of my favourite intensives to perform for clients; the transformations and deep healing effected by this intensive, lean towards the miraculous! Additionally, I’ll be devising an exclusive intensive as a special seasonal working, utilising the potent solar and lunar configurations at this point in their sacred dance, through the Solstice Portal. I’ll keep you updated here and via the newsletter as these options become available. If you’re not on the mailing list, email me to join and make sure you don’t miss out. On another note, progress slowed down on rebuilding of the Mayastar website last week. My poor computer wasn’t quite powerful enough to handle the programme so it slowed me down by gradually getting buggier as more pages were added. In the end, I had to bite the bullet and upgrade to something a bit more suitable. And boy does that feel good! I’m loving my new laptop and it’s lightning-fast responsiveness! It’s going to save me hours of work and eliminate unnecessary frustration; so, as is my wont, I named it “Ganesh” after the Hindu god of removing obstacles! And now, let’s turn to the cards and see where we might best focus our energies over the coming days. I’ve chosen the Tarot of the Little Prince for this reading. I fell in love with this deck at first sight! I’ve always loved the story of The Little Prince; but I enjoyed reading it in French as part of learning the language last year; the illustrations for this deck really convey the feeling of the story beautifully. I don’t see many people raving about it, but for me, it’s one of Lo Scarabeo’s best releases. So, sit down. Relax. Enjoy a herbal tea. And let’s dive in… Ooh yes! This is what we like to see! Our main energy to tap into over the coming days is reflected in the Queen of Wands. The Queen of Wands is powerful archetype that combines the fiery, passionate and wilful energy of the Wands suit with the creativity, caring and compassion of the Queen. In this deck, she is aligned with the character of the Turkish astronomer that identifies the asteroid belonging to the Little Prince in the book. As such, she is depicted very much like a traditional Queen of Wands, but she holds a staff in one hand and a telescope in the other. The Rider-Waite design features a black cat and symbolises the Queen of Wand’s power to tap into magick and explore the mysteries. However, this energy takes on a new hue in the Tarot of the Little Prince! Her throne is adorned with snakes and roses. The snake represents the risen Kundalini energy, spiritual awakening and the wisdom of experience. The Queen of Wands moves in cycles and with her knowledge of the cycling stars and understanding of the mysteries, she retains her grounding and confidence while observing the constant movement and shift of the universe. The Queen of Wands calls us to align ourselves with divine timing. Work with the seasons and the energies that are currently influencing our lives as a means to enhance growth, healing and spiritual awakening. The second card shows us how we might tap into this energy more intensely…and it couldn’t be better! The World card comes right at the end of the Major Arcana and reflects completion, wholeness and integration. It’s a time when everything comes together and you’ve got all your ducks in a row. It’s the feeling you have when your self-esteem goes through the roof and other peoples’ cynicism, criticism and judgement can’t touch you. It’s how you feel when you’re really ok with yourself. When you’re really ok with yourself, you’re ok with other people too. Have you ever noticed how unhealed people are so enthusiastic in articulating their complaints and condemnations? Well, if you can take yourself out of that low level of consciousness, you stop hearing them and this card suggests you’re in a position to do just that! To tap into your majesty and magnificence, remind yourself that you’re perfect, exactly as you are. The universe knows it. I know it. And when you know it, other peoples’ limited beliefs, projections and malignity will be lost in the glorious music of your soul. It’s time to ignore what other people say and give yourself license to dance to the music only you can hear. If they think you’re mad, remember that their judgement expresses their limitations, not yours. Be confident. Be yourself. Be authentic. Even if the whole world were to stand against you, you’d be standing with the universe (and me!) at your back! And finally, what should we avoid? What’s the most influential impediment to the promise of the first card?....The Death card. This card rarely means literal death, but it could indicate a preoccupation with ideas of limitation and lack; or feelings of fear and anxiety inspired by death, endings or just the nature of the temporal world. Perhaps we can look at death a bit differently to avoid those limiting ideas? Rather than seeing it as the opposite of life, appreciate that it’s a part of life. I love the ivy that grows in my garden. I love the idea that it supports lots of wildlife and the local frogs seem to enjoy the shade and dampness it provides. However, I have to cut that ivy down frequently because, given free rein, it will strangle the oak tree that’s growing next to it. Life that’s not tempered by death can be destructive and malignant. Appreciate the balance of life and death. I hope you’ve enjoyed our musings today! I wish you a wonderful week, bounteous blessings and glorious gains! And I’ll see you again soon. 2nd June 2021...I’ve had a hectic few days as the Birthday Special Offer drew to a close at the end of the May. For those who missed out, while the special discount for the Birthday Offer’s no longer available, the courses due for archiving are still available here… People have asked me to make recommendations from the list of courses being archived. But it’s difficult because I enjoyed working with all of these energies! I wouldn’t have gone on to teach them otherwise! But there are some that stand out to me! In particular: Blue Star Celestial Energies, Ceremonial White Magic, Deities Empowerments, Diamond of Prosperity, Eye of the Universe, Kali Ma New Moon Empowerment, Karuna Ki, Lightworker Knighthood Attunements, Lightworker Ocean Mother Full Moon, Lightworker Rose Aura Link, Psychic Protection Flame, Solar & Lunar Light Empowerments, Wheel of Love and WhiteLight Self-Empowerment System. So, if any of those appeal to you, they would be excellent choices! All the courses on the Archive Menu made a potent contribution to my spiritual journey at some point and every attunement brought me closer to the person I am now; so for me, all of those energies empowered me and progressed my healing journey! And I’m honoured to be able to share them with others working towards their own healing and spiritual growth. Anyway, let’s settle down and have a look at what’s coming our way over the next few days. I’ve chosen the Anima Mundi Tarot for today’s reading. I have a number of nature- and animal-based decks but this one is the one that I reach for most of the time! The primary energy we can tap into to progress our spiritual journeys right now is expressed in the form of The Empress. This resonates very strongly with me! Since the Beltane Portal Intensive a month ago, I’ve had lots of requests from clients for special Tantric Shamanic Rituals through the Goddess Freya! So I’m very much immersed in the energies of abundance, fertility and creativity right now. And these cards indicate, it’s not just me being drawn into these high frequencies! There are bountiful blessings available to the collective! These cards recommend us to lean into our connection with the earth and natural world; seek alignment with the myriad expressions of life around us. Take time to meditate on the sunset, watch the trees dance in the wind or go for a walk in the park and enjoy the birdsong. Opening our consciousness to life in this way can help us to feel more grounded and creative. The second card indicates where we should put our attention to align more closely with the energy of the first card. Today, this is represented by the 4 of Cups. This can indicate a lack of grounding and feeling a bit low-energy or unenthusiastic about life. The fact that this is the card we should focus on suggests it’s time to have a look at your uncomfortable feelings. Seek the source of your discomfort because the promise of the first card is that solutions, healing and prosperity are powerfully placed to manifest for you right now! Maybe used the Grounding Visualisation if you’re feeling a little disconnected. The final card warns us about the potential hazards and hindrances that are most likely to block us from the blessings of the first card. Today this is reflected in the 6 of Wands. In its shadow aspect this card warns us to avoid falling into the traps of the ego! That can include too much ego or too little. An inflated sense of self-belief can block us from learning and growing because we simply don’t see the need; and a deficit of self-belief can lead us to think it’s not possible to change and grow. But the cards are clear! Growth isn’t just possible, the universe is gearing you towards it and the cards reveal that the biggest threat to your success this week is the risk that you won’t get out of your own way and open yourself up to the opportunities the universe is providing. You can do this! I, for one, believe in you! X Join me back here for more musings on Saturday! In the meantime, if there’s anything I can help you with, I’m only an email away. X May 2021 Musings...

June 2021 Musings... Current Special Offer: Lemurian Indigo Connections Special Strawberry Supermoon Killing Moon Cycle Strawberry Supermoon Solstice Portal Magickal Intesnive Gallery Updated In June 12th June 2021…I’ve felt like I’ve been on holiday all week because of the first summer heatwave in the UK! I don’t function well with the heat usually but this year I bought a fancy air-cooler, and so far, I have to admit, it works so well that I’m kicking myself for not getting one last year when I first looked into them! The summery vibes have had me reaching for Paulina Cassidy tarot decks a lot, and today, I’ve chosen the Spiritsong Tarot for our guidance. It’s an animal-based deck but Paulina’s ethereal style makes it feel quite gentle and whimsical! Let’s explore… The dominant energy making its presence felt for us over the coming days is reflected in the 4 of Crystals (Pentacles). This card features a beaver, focused on his work and manifesting the dam of his dreams! This card can indicate the holding and demonstrating of one’s personal power; the creation of healthy boundaries and the independence that comes when you put your life in order. It can be a fine balance to create a structure in your life that will help you to flourish. But routines, rules and rituals can help you to achieve your goals and create a sense of security and accomplishment. Now may be a good time to take an overview of your life and see if there are areas that would benefit from a bit more structure…and perhaps, see if there are any that could benefit from a little de-structuring to. The second card offers us the key to obtaining the real benefits of the first card and in this case it’s represented by the Temperance card. This card emphasises the recommendations of the first card: looks for opportunities to bring more balance to your life by making adjustments to your routine that will serve you better. Aiming to fill every minute of every day with productivity is counter- productive; if you’re very fixed on scheduling your work time, why not be a bit fixed on scheduling your rest time too? And finally, the third card reveals the potential challenges we might face. And today, these are reflected in the shadow-aspect of the Nine of Shells (Cups) cards. This is the card of wishes coming true and deep fulfilment. Even in its shadow-aspect, it’s not all doom and gloom because it indicates the possibility of fast manifestations and powerful healing! However, with the high energies of the Strawberry Supermoon Solstice Portal, there’s magick in the air! So, this card cautions you to be careful what you wish for because right now, your thoughts are creating your reality at an accelerated rate. It’s a great time for personal development, healing and focusing on what you want to manifest for yourself and your life because there’s great potential for miraculous change and demonstrations of abundance in all areas of your life. If you’re hoping to manifest a change for the better, now’s your divinely ordained opportunity! This seems very timely as the first newsletter detailing the Strawberry Supermoon Solstice Portal magickal intensive options is going out today! This month is building up to a beautiful finish and I hope you’ll all make the most of the potent energetic tide in whatever way feels right for you. And with that, I wish you health and wealth, peace and prosperity, and I’ll see you again soon. XXX 9th June 2021...Having a busy but exciting week at Mayastar HQ! Preparations for the Strawberry Supermoon Solstice magickal intensives are well underway! This cosmic configuration creates an opportunity to tap into powerful energetic tides, and I’ll be harnessing the limitless flow to effect profound and progressive change for my clients! If you’d like to know more, please visit: 7-Day Strawberry Supermoon Solstice Intensive with Goddess Freya and the Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Ritual Intensive. And now, it’s time to find out what the cards can tell us about our direction over the coming days! I’ve chosen the Affirmators Tarot for today. I was feeling frivolous and light-hearted and this deck really resonated with me. It has brilliantly coloured, almost childish images of animals on each card. But far from being a challenge to read, it’s a dream because it follows the traditional Rider-Waite system of meaning. Let’s explore! The Ace of Pentacles represents the dominant energy influencing us at the moment. This card represents the potential we can tap into over the next few days. And the Ace of Pentacles speaks to us of success and abundance. This might be financial, but it might also be in your sense of meaning and satisfaction in life. There’s opportunity for increased contentment, security and wealth! If you’re thinking of starting a new hobby, looking for a new job or exploring the possibility of setting up your own busines, now might be a good time to at least start learning the skills you’ll need. It could be a good time to take a course that will improve your career or take your hobby to the next level. The second card offers us the key to the promise of the first card. This represents the energy that we should focus on to align us more closely with the first and to manifest the blessings and potential. Today, this is The Chariot. It recommends us to balance our intentions and drives; maintain some focus and don’t allow yourself to be swayed too much by what’s going on around you. Stay in your lane and stay the course. But also, stay present: there might be a tendency for your mind to wander or your actions to be confused and inconsistent because you’re trying to do too much at once, and if you give into it, your progress may be underwhelming! You can choose where you put your attention and you’ll find you naturally steer towards it as long as you maintain that focus. The final card is the 4 of Wands and in this position, it cautions us against hastiness and arrogance. It’s not time to rest on your laurels just yet! That time is coming, but it’s not right now. Whatever you do, don’t let your ego get caught up in the excitement of focusing on results, you can make the most of the opportunities the universe is unfolding in your life by pacing yourself and keeping your head. Wonderful! Please take what vibes with you and leave the rest behind as you go about your day; and come back again soon for more musings X 5th June 2021...Welcome to my latest blog update! Before I get onto the general updates and tarot, here’s a link for the current special offer for Mayastar: the Dolphin Rainbow Chakra Healing Course can be purchased with a £40 saving for the next 48 hours only! This is an energy healing modality I worked with intensively in May as part of a Lemurian healing ritual. It’s excellent for emotional healing, inner-child work and if, like me, you feel drawn to ancient Lemuria and Atlantis, these energies will inspire and relieve the soul! I’m also working on the Maya Magickal special offers that will come out in the middle of the month. These will harness the energetic tides of the Summer Solstice, and the Super Moon on the 24th. Around this time there will be a Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Ritual Intensive; the comprehensive, deep karmic healing & release from negative, hindering and baneful karmic- bonds, that’s my most popular magickal intensive. It exerts a profoundly healing effect on all areas of life because all areas of life are subject to the influence of subtle energy. The energies around us affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Many people find their financial prosperity or relationships experience blocks and bad fortune when negative energetic influences are at play. So, it’s one of my favourite intensives to perform for clients; the transformations and deep healing effected by this intensive, lean towards the miraculous! Additionally, I’ll be devising an exclusive intensive as a special seasonal working, utilising the potent solar and lunar configurations at this point in their sacred dance, through the Solstice Portal. I’ll keep you updated here and via the newsletter as these options become available. If you’re not on the mailing list, email me to join and make sure you don’t miss out. On another note, progress slowed down on rebuilding of the Mayastar website last week. My poor computer wasn’t quite powerful enough to handle the programme so it slowed me down by gradually getting buggier as more pages were added. In the end, I had to bite the bullet and upgrade to something a bit more suitable. And boy does that feel good! I’m loving my new laptop and it’s lightning-fast responsiveness! It’s going to save me hours of work and eliminate unnecessary frustration; so, as is my wont, I named it “Ganesh” after the Hindu god of removing obstacles! And now, let’s turn to the cards and see where we might best focus our energies over the coming days. I’ve chosen the Tarot of the Little Prince for this reading. I fell in love with this deck at first sight! I’ve always loved the story of The Little Prince; but I enjoyed reading it in French as part of learning the language last year; the illustrations for this deck really convey the feeling of the story beautifully. I don’t see many people raving about it, but for me, it’s one of Lo Scarabeo’s best releases. So, sit down. Relax. Enjoy a herbal tea. And let’s dive in… Ooh yes! This is what we like to see! Our main energy to tap into over the coming days is reflected in the Queen of Wands. The Queen of Wands is powerful archetype that combines the fiery, passionate and wilful energy of the Wands suit with the creativity, caring and compassion of the Queen. In this deck, she is aligned with the character of the Turkish astronomer that identifies the asteroid belonging to the Little Prince in the book. As such, she is depicted very much like a traditional Queen of Wands, but she holds a staff in one hand and a telescope in the other. The Rider- Waite design features a black cat and symbolises the Queen of Wand’s power to tap into magick and explore the mysteries. However, this energy takes on a new hue in the Tarot of the Little Prince! Her throne is adorned with snakes and roses. The snake represents the risen Kundalini energy, spiritual awakening and the wisdom of experience. The Queen of Wands moves in cycles and with her knowledge of the cycling stars and understanding of the mysteries, she retains her grounding and confidence while observing the constant movement and shift of the universe. The Queen of Wands calls us to align ourselves with divine timing. Work with the seasons and the energies that are currently influencing our lives as a means to enhance growth, healing and spiritual awakening. The second card shows us how we might tap into this energy more intensely…and it couldn’t be better! The World card comes right at the end of the Major Arcana and reflects completion, wholeness and integration. It’s a time when everything comes together and you’ve got all your ducks in a row. It’s the feeling you have when your self-esteem goes through the roof and other peoples’ cynicism, criticism and judgement can’t touch you. It’s how you feel when you’re really ok with yourself. When you’re really ok with yourself, you’re ok with other people too. Have you ever noticed how unhealed people are so enthusiastic in articulating their complaints and condemnations? Well, if you can take yourself out of that low level of consciousness, you stop hearing them and this card suggests you’re in a position to do just that! To tap into your majesty and magnificence, remind yourself that you’re perfect, exactly as you are. The universe knows it. I know it. And when you know it, other peoples’ limited beliefs, projections and malignity will be lost in the glorious music of your soul. It’s time to ignore what other people say and give yourself license to dance to the music only you can hear. If they think you’re mad, remember that their judgement expresses their limitations, not yours. Be confident. Be yourself. Be authentic. Even if the whole world were to stand against you, you’d be standing with the universe (and me!) at your back! And finally, what should we avoid? What’s the most influential impediment to the promise of the first card?....The Death card. This card rarely means literal death, but it could indicate a preoccupation with ideas of limitation and lack; or feelings of fear and anxiety inspired by death, endings or just the nature of the temporal world. Perhaps we can look at death a bit differently to avoid those limiting ideas? Rather than seeing it as the opposite of life, appreciate that it’s a part of life. I love the ivy that grows in my garden. I love the idea that it supports lots of wildlife and the local frogs seem to enjoy the shade and dampness it provides. However, I have to cut that ivy down frequently because, given free rein, it will strangle the oak tree that’s growing next to it. Life that’s not tempered by death can be destructive and malignant. Appreciate the balance of life and death. I hope you’ve enjoyed our musings today! I wish you a wonderful week, bounteous blessings and glorious gains! And I’ll see you again soon. 2nd June 2021...I’ve had a hectic few days as the Birthday Special Offer drew to a close at the end of the May. For those who missed out, while the special discount for the Birthday Offer’s no longer available, the courses due for archiving are still available here… People have asked me to make recommendations from the list of courses being archived. But it’s difficult because I enjoyed working with all of these energies! I wouldn’t have gone on to teach them otherwise! But there are some that stand out to me! In particular: Blue Star Celestial Energies, Ceremonial White Magic, Deities Empowerments, Diamond of Prosperity, Eye of the Universe, Kali Ma New Moon Empowerment, Karuna Ki, Lightworker Knighthood Attunements, Lightworker Ocean Mother Full Moon, Lightworker Rose Aura Link, Psychic Protection Flame, Solar & Lunar Light Empowerments, Wheel of Love and WhiteLight Self-Empowerment System. So, if any of those appeal to you, they would be excellent choices! All the courses on the Archive Menu made a potent contribution to my spiritual journey at some point and every attunement brought me closer to the person I am now; so for me, all of those energies empowered me and progressed my healing journey! And I’m honoured to be able to share them with others working towards their own healing and spiritual growth. Anyway, let’s settle down and have a look at what’s coming our way over the next few days. I’ve chosen the Anima Mundi Tarot for today’s reading. I have a number of nature- and animal- based decks but this one is the one that I reach for most of the time! The primary energy we can tap into to progress our spiritual journeys right now is expressed in the form of The Empress. This resonates very strongly with me! Since the Beltane Portal Intensive a month ago, I’ve had lots of requests from clients for special Tantric Shamanic Rituals through the Goddess Freya! So I’m very much immersed in the energies of abundance, fertility and creativity right now. And these cards indicate, it’s not just me being drawn into these high frequencies! There are bountiful blessings available to the collective! These cards recommend us to lean into our connection with the earth and natural world; seek alignment with the myriad expressions of life around us. Take time to meditate on the sunset, watch the trees dance in the wind or go for a walk in the park and enjoy the birdsong. Opening our consciousness to life in this way can help us to feel more grounded and creative. The second card indicates where we should put our attention to align more closely with the energy of the first card. Today, this is represented by the 4 of Cups. This can indicate a lack of grounding and feeling a bit low-energy or unenthusiastic about life. The fact that this is the card we should focus on suggests it’s time to have a look at your uncomfortable feelings. Seek the source of your discomfort because the promise of the first card is that solutions, healing and prosperity are powerfully placed to manifest for you right now! Maybe used the Grounding Visualisation if you’re feeling a little disconnected. The final card warns us about the potential hazards and hindrances that are most likely to block us from the blessings of the first card. Today this is reflected in the 6 of Wands. In its shadow aspect this card warns us to avoid falling into the traps of the ego! That can include too much ego or too little. An inflated sense of self-belief can block us from learning and growing because we simply don’t see the need; and a deficit of self-belief can lead us to think it’s not possible to change and grow. But the cards are clear! Growth isn’t just possible, the universe is gearing you towards it and the cards reveal that the biggest threat to your success this week is the risk that you won’t get out of your own way and open yourself up to the opportunities the universe is providing. You can do this! I, for one, believe in you! X Join me back here for more musings on Saturday! In the meantime, if there’s anything I can help you with, I’m only an email away. X May 2021 Musings...
