Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

__________________________________ May 2022 Musings... NEXT Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Intensive: 28th May Luring Moon Abundance 30-Day Intensive: 14th June Starseed Psychic Activations Course Special Offer Ocean of Intuition 3rd Eye Activation Course Special Offer Mayastar Article - 5 Ways to Increase Your Intuition Mayastar Article - How Mayastar Courses Work Deviant Art Gallery - Updated In May Mayastar YouTube Channel 16th May 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Life at Mayastar has settled into a balanced & blessed routine this year. Last year, I did the extra work of redeveloping all of my websites alongside the regular running of Mayastar. The work was ultimately rewarding, but it didn’t leave much time for recreation. So with the start of 2022, I extended my morning meditation practice to help re-acclimatise myself to my regular lifestyle of keeping a rigid routine for my spiritual practice morning and evening, but otherwise, going with the flow & allowing the days to take shape without my constant attention. My morning meditation is a time to connect with solar energy & with my trees. Spending time with trees has been important for me since childhood. My best friend was a willow tree & he was very encouraging of my magickal abilities. I’d spend long periods of time in meditation under my tree, and would connect really deeply with him. Then later, when I was in bed at night, I’d go out of my body to visit him. So my earliest magickal experiments, at 8 years old, were very much tied to my powerful spiritual connection with nature – but especially with trees. So this week, I’ve been working with Celtic Reiki to intensify my connection with the trees in my garden. Hawthorn, blackthorn, oak, hazel and birch currently keep me company & enhance my morning ritual with their deep, dark & ancient magick. In other news, the first Luring Moon Field of Abundance Alignment 30-Day Ritual Intensive that’s scheduled to align with the full moon is taking place now! I’m really excited as this cycle marks the start of regularly scheduled full moon workings of this magickal intensive. The working has been available to a limited number of advanced clients I’ve worked with regularly for the past few months, but now it’s publicly available & will be henceforth. The Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Ritual Intensive will have a new regular schedule to begin during the dark moon phase of each month. I’m thrilled to be able to bring these comprehensive & powerful workings to more people this year – and I can’t wait to witness the magick that unfolds for my clients in the coming months. 2022 promises to be a transformative & triumphant year! And now, we turn to the work at hand… I’ve chosen The Happy Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This deck is light-hearted & joyful. It has a sugary sweet cuteness to it but also includes the traditional symbols of the Rider-Waite system to create a balanced representation of the archetypes. 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 7 of Cups. In this position, we’re looking at the positive aspects of the card. The 7 of Cups invites us to explore our possibilities & potential through imagination & fantasy. Indulging in daydreams can help us to discover what truly matters to us & gives us a space in which to explore what we really want out of life. Allow your intuition to guide you as you imagine yourself & your future in flights of fancy. Don’t be afraid to dream big! Make your imaginings as colourful & comprehensive as possible by acknowledging the emotions your vivid & vibrant visions inspire. Writing down some of your ideas may help you to uncover new opportunities for healing, happiness & 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 the 5 of Cups. In this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspect of this card. The 5 of Cups cautions us to avoid getting trapped in the past by focusing on negative experiences, trauma, loss or grief. When exploring your imagination, you might notice that your mind starts to replay past events. It can be tempting to jump on those thoughts because they seem rooted in reality in a way that hopes & dreams aren’t. This week, if replays of the past mar your meditations, try a new approach. Perhaps you could thank your unconscious mind for reminding you of the details, & then remind yourself that the past is the past and you don’t need to remember it every day to learn from it. Bring yourself back to the present & extend love & compassion to the parts of yourself that need reassurance. 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. 16th May 2022…Ace of Cups…Make a wish because potent promise, power & potential are pouring into your life! Be open to the possibility that the future is brighter than you anticipated. The Universe reminds you that an open heart can contain more magick than a closed one. Maintain a curious attitude & lean into optimism. Smile today & the Universe smiles with you! 17th May 2022…9 of Cups…Demonstrations of abundance & prosperity abound & surround you. Take the time to 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. Intend to enjoy your day & trust in the Universe to sanctify your every step in life’s sacred dance. 18th May 2022…Ace of Wands…Opportunities for opulence, fun & festivity flourish today! Be ambitious in your aims & let your passion determine your direction in order to bring in the blessings. The Universe reminds you that taking action on your plans can inspire invisible forces to make things happen. Be the master of your destiny by keeping your intentions high & your hopes higher. 19th May 2022…Knight of Pentacles…Slow down & spend some time on your spiritual practice. Self-care & healing rituals offer an opportunity for you to relax, recover & replenish your energy. The Universe reminds you that when you feel you haven’t time to meditate, you need to meditate twice as much. If you’ve been overly busy, today’s the day to rest & regain your equilibrium. 20th May 2022…Hanged Man…Take a step back from your life to appreciate recent changes & challenges. Today’s a day for integration & catching up with yourself. The Universe reminds you that worry is a misuse of your imagination. Stepping apart from your thoughts allows you to identify problematic patterns. Trust in the Universe & move beyond the frontiers of fear & the margins of melancholy. 21st May 2022…Queen of Wands…Your shimmering soul shines & sanctifies every corner of your life with meaning & magick. You have the power to flip the script & change your direction at any moment. The Universe reminds you that your freedom & sovereignty is divinely ordained. Affirm: I am a Child of the Universe; I embrace my essence & live in limitless light. 22nd May 2022…The Moon…Your intuition is piqued & your sensitivity is high. Look after yourself today & avoid the drama. Nurture your spiritual nature through creativity by exploring art, poetry, music or dance. The Universe reminds you that you don’t know everything about yourself – & you don’t need to. Appreciate the magnitude of your mysteriousness by going with the flow today. This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. 9th May 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. 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 Dame Darcy’s Mermaid Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This deck is moving & magickal & filled with oceanic energy, fun & frivolity. It also draws on the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith symbolism & meanings so it’s beautifully balanced in depth & dreaminess! It’s one of my favourite decks for summer & working with it always makes me smile. 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 Knight of Cups. This is the energy of the poet and lover. It’s the seeker of spiritual truth that finds connection with divinity through the creative expression of love. The Knight of Cups recommends us to explore the magick behind the mundane by putting channelling our energy into making things that are beautiful to us. Celebrate the sacred through soul-nourishing self-care rituals to restore your spiritual connection with yourself. Perhaps it’s time for a self-care date-night? Perhaps you could pull out all the stops and treat yourself to a long evening of good food, energy healing & curling up with a favourite film. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, the excellent news is that there is no opposition anticipated. Rather, the deep emotional & spiritual energetic tide is further emphasised by the Queen of Cups. The Queen of Cups has a powerful connection with the unconscious, and with our dreams and visions. Her presence reminds us to listen to the promptings of our intuition & follow our hearts in all we do. Pay attention to repetitive symbols or impressions received in dreams & meditations this week. Your soul has powerful guidance for you. Go with the flow! 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. 9th May 2022…The Moon…Magickal messages from your unconscious mind are ready to surface. Meditation & bathing rituals create opportunities to bring hidden pearls of precious power to your conscious mind. As the lunar current waxes full in your spiritual landscape, new ways of looking at old problems are revealed. The Universe reminds you that healing sleep allows you to integrate inspiration, so get an early night! 10th May 2022…Knight of Wands… Muster your courage & confidence by embracing your eccentricity & accommodating your quirks. The things that make you different are unique gifts. The Universe reminds you that you are exactly the way you are supposed to be. So don’t compare yourself with others. All yardsticks are useless in the face of your immeasurable individuality! Expand into your excellence. 11th May 2022…The Sun…Your inner child seeks something spectacular & sublime. Turn your face towards the light & feel your shining spirit bloom from within. The Universe reminds you that golden good fortune is drawn to the golden goodness of your shimmering soul. Let your light-centric centre shine shamelessly today. Radical optimism & bold positivity create a gloriously great day. 12th May 2022…5 of Cups…Opportunities to learn from past pain in order to progress the path to wholeness are revealed in quiet moments. Put a safe distance between yourself in the past & the person you’ve evolved to be by appreciating the shifts & shake-ups. The Universe reminds you that change can be hard, but it’s essential for evolving the endlessly expanding essence of your divinity. 13th May 2022…2 of Pentacles…Pace yourself to avoid getting stressed out or burnt out today. Practical tasks compete for your time & attention, so be careful not to overcommit. The Universe reminds you that rest, recovery & relaxation are also essential. Organise your schedule to include some time for doing nothing to keep things balanced. Slow & steady wins the race. 14th May 2022…The Chariot…Explore the edges & extremities of your free- spirit today. Take the reins & decide your destiny by picking the path that inspires your spirit to shine. The Universe reminds you that your freedom is expressed in every moment of choice. Make each move with mindfulness & aim high with audacity & ambition. Affirm: I honour my sovereign & sacred soul; by living & loving I AM whole. 15th May 2022…10 of Cups…Fall in love with your life today by appreciating the bounteous benedictions that surround you. Express gratitude for all that makes your heart sing & your spirit soar. A sea of stars shines with eternal light over your spiritual landscape. The Universe reminds you that you are beloved, beautiful & blessed in every moment. Don’t doubt your divinity Child of the Universe. This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. 2nd May 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. This month I’m celebrating 18 years of Mayastar! It’s hard to believe I’ve been teaching & inspiring people to learn healing & meditation techniques in order to enhance their lives for that long – but I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun; and I love what I do with all my heart & soul. In the past 18 years, I’ve worked with over 3000 students all around the world, and taught over 10,000 attunement-based energy healing courses. When I founded Mayastar, I had no idea it would become the beacon for lightworkers it is today. It’s been a fantastic 18 years of heart-centred, soul- inspiring work. Mayastar has continued to grow, evolve, improve & provide an increasingly diverse range of attunement-based energy healing & spiritual development courses – as well as advanced certification options for those who wish to become healers & offer treatments professionally. Mayastar’s magick wouldn’t exist without my beloved students & clients, & the interest & support of those that follow my work here, and on all my social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, DeviantArt, Pinterest & Linkedin). So I want to extend an enthused & impassioned thank you to you all! You are deeply appreciated. Everything happens for a reason, and if you’re reading or listening to this, my love & appreciation is extended to you! I believe people find Mayastar at the time they will benefit most from my work. It’s always been my intention that the Universe guide people to my work when the time is right for them; and that all will prosper & progress through that connection. I look forward to another 18 years of sharing the light and love through Mayastar & am excited to see how things evolve & expand as our journey continues. And now, we turn to the work at hand… I’ve chosen the Paulina Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This deck is whimsical, wonderful & filled with wit & wisdom. 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 Ace of Wands. This card indicates high vibrations & passion this week so look for avenues that allow you to express your enthusiasm & energy in order to fuel the fire of creative force that’s burning within you! Opportunities for closer alignment with your true self are in the offing, but you need to be ready to take action. Don’t sit on the side-lines of your life & applaud – get out there & do something radical! Maintain your confidence by focusing on the things you can do & you’ll end the week feeling greatly empowered & shining like the star you truly are! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this energetic current is reflected in the 7 of Cups. This isn’t a negative card by any means, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadowed aspects of the archetype. This can represent a tendency to dream or fantasize but not take action. It can be about procrastination, but it can also be about limiting your possibilities by engaging with wishful thinking rather than taking practical steps to resolve problems. If you think about cleaning your house 10 times, before you do it once, you’ve reinforced your resistance to the task & spent a lot more time thinking about it than it would have taken to do it. That’s a tendency to be aware of and avoid this week. In order to align with the Ace of Wands energy, be prepared to act. 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. 2nd May 2022…High Priestess…Secret & sacred knowledge is held within, so seek your spiritual support through your higher self during your meditations today. Your intuition & dreams communicate important messages, but its in silence that you’ll hear them most clearly. The Universe reminds you not to be swayed by the opinions & actions of those around you. Keep your own counsel & follow your own path. 3rd May 2022…The Hanged Man…Today’s your opportunity to unwind your mind. Disconnect from the drama & mute notifications for a while to give yourself some space to breathe. The Universe reminds you that mundane tasks can provide opportunities for meditation too. Zone out while you hoover or chant while you wash the dishes. There are paths to peace in the practical projects of the day. 4th May 2022…4 of Wands…Take time to smell the roses & appreciate abundance. Look at your life & recognise the improvement, increase & inspiration that’s bloomed. Your commitment to your dreams pays off. The Universe reminds you that manifestation is continuous & you co-create your reality; so keep your hopes high & count your blessings often. Love your life & your life will love you back! 5th May 2022…6 of Swords…Today promises progress on your spiritual path. Opportunities for deep healing come when repressed thoughts & feelings rise to our conscious awareness without judgement or upset. Create a healing oasis for yourself with some yoga, energy healing or a relaxing ritual bath. The Universe reminds you that rest brings recovery & refreshment. Your soul expands, excels & exceeds past limitations. 6th May 2022…4 of Cups…Face your feelings & front out your floundering motivation. You’re about to find your groove again but you can help the process by bringing your focus back to the present moment. The Universe reminds you that energy flows where attention goes & distractions can deplete your determination. You are lifted & limitlessly loved by a light- centric & life-supporting divine source. 7th May 2022...Strength…Your heart expands to embrace your wildness & illuminates the shadows at the edges of your reality. Radical self-acceptance means extending kindness, compassion & charity to yourself. The Universe reminds you to nourish your soul by loving yourself unconditionally. Your strength is restored through recognising & rejoicing in your realness. Affirm: “My heart embraces my soul; I’m treasured, accepted & whole.” 8th May 2022…2 of Swords…If you’ve been holding back or sitting on the fence, it’s time to dissolve the deadlock & make a decision. You get to determine your direction & you get to do it in your own distinctive way. The Universe reminds you that confidence in your divine self isn’t misplaced. You have reserves of untapped potential within. Align your thoughts with progress & prosper prolifically. This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. With blessings. 25th April 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. 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 find these musings at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My words are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. If you like what you find here, please share this page with your friends. One good deed deserves another – and because your engagement really helps me, if you share this page today, I hope and intend that you will be blessed with bountiful beneficence this week. Today, I’ve chosen the Starlight Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This deck is evocative & has a very shamanic energy. I’m sure it will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us. 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 days for the purpose of progressing the spiritual path & pursuing wholeness is reflected in the card of 2 of Cups. This card represents spiritually nurturing connections on an emotional or spiritual level. The dolphins on the card are reminiscent of child-like playfulness, curiosity & unconditional love. This card is often about therapy & healing – which may involve connection with a soul-mate, spiritual guide or close friend. But equally, it can represent our connection to the inner-child & our internal communication. The presence of this card in this position indicates opportunities for deep healing over the coming week. And for those pursuing their healing journey, working with animal energies, particularly dolphin energy, could be a powerful way to enhance your spiritual practice in the coming days. Consider creating a spiritual safe-space for your healing work with a sacred bathing ritual; you can find inspiration for creating your own soul-nourishing self-care session in the Rose Quartz Bath Sanctuary article on the Mayastar website. And if you work with Dolphin Rainbow Chakra Healing, Dolphin Heart Reiki, or Animal Medicine Empowerments, connecting with Dolphin energy this week could manifest miracles! The second card looks at the potential opposition we may face in pursuing the promises of the first card. And the good news is, no significant oppositional or restrictive energetic currents are anticipated this week! The Empress is the Goddess of Love & she bestows her blessings on those pursuing all forms of spiritual love. She is the goddess of hearth & home, as well as healing – so pursue activities that make you feel connected, cared- for & comfortable. Crafts & creative projects can help you to disconnect from your thoughts. Contemplation & compassion are key. 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 25th April 2022…The High Priestess…Your sensitivity to subtle energy is high & your higher self is communicating with you through dreams & during your meditations. Tune into your intuition to receive essential guidance. The Universe reminds you that you are continuously connected to the source of your soul. Quiet your mind to hear & heed the promptings of your spirit today. Tuesday 26th April 2022…Princess of Pentacles…Your entrepreneurial spirit shines! Make your plans meticulously & execute them methodically. Progress is made through diligence & developing new skills. Put your energy into taking practical steps towards your goals, but don’t rush yourself! The Universe reminds you, that whatever you can conceive & believe, you can achieve! Pursue & profess prosperity in all you do today. Wednesday 27th April 2022…6 of Wands…Congratulations! Your beauty, brilliance & bravery are recognised. The Universe sees your progress & bears witness to your achievements. You are invited to celebrate your success today. Appreciate your triumphs without judging yourself. Applaud your accomplishments, pat yourself on the back & take a bow to acknowledge your growth. Victory is your word of the day! Thursday 28th April 2022…The Wheel of Fortune…Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, blessings of luminous luck & fantastic fortune fall upon you! Changes are in the air & with them come wide & wonderful opportunities. Align with this expansive current by focusing on gratitude during your meditations today. The Universe reminds you that change is inevitable, but progress is optional. Friday 29th April 2022… Knight of Wands…Today brings opportunities to exceed your expectations. Perhaps you complete all items on your to-do list or an exciting new opportunity opens up for you. The Universe reminds you to pursue your passion & follow your fantastic fortunes. You’re fizzing with power & energy. Direct it towards your dreams, curry your courage & charge towards your glorious future! Saturday 30th April 2022…King of Wands…Align with your sovereignty & embrace your enigmatic excellence. Take centre-stage in your life today by cultivating your confidence & mustering your magnificence. The Universe reminds you not to judge yourself by other peoples’ standards. Your path is yours alone. Affirm: I hold my magick, I hold my power, I master this minute, this day, this hour! Sunday 1st May 2022…Queen of Wands…Fiery fervour fills you with fabulous feelings. Make sure you direct your attention to the things you want to flourish because your energetic fertility foreshadows fruitfulness today. The Universe reminds you that life flows in accordance with your focus. Maintain high ideals & be open to the idea that the best day of your life hasn’t happened yet! This concludes today’s mystical musings. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do.

Life at Mayastar has settled into a balanced & blessed routine this year. Last year, I did the extra work of redeveloping all of my websites alongside the regular running of Mayastar. The work was ultimately rewarding, but it didn’t leave much time for recreation. So with the start of 2022, I extended my morning meditation practice to help re-acclimatise myself to my regular lifestyle of keeping a rigid routine for my spiritual practice morning and evening, but otherwise, going with the flow & allowing the days to take shape without my constant attention. My morning meditation is a time to connect with solar energy & with my trees. Spending time with trees has been important for me since childhood.

Then later, when I was in bed at night, I’d go out of my body to visit him. So my earliest magickal experiments, at 8 years old, were very much tied to my powerful spiritual connection with nature – but especially with trees. So this week, I’ve been working with Celtic Reiki to intensify my connection with the trees in my garden. Hawthorn, blackthorn, oak, hazel and birch currently keep me company & enhance my morning ritual with their deep, dark & ancient magick. In other news, the first Luring Moon Field of Abundance Alignment 30-Day Ritual Intensive that’s scheduled to align with the full moon is taking place now! I’m really excited as this cycle marks the start of regularly scheduled full moon workings of this magickal intensive. The working has been available to a limited number of advanced clients I’ve worked with regularly for the past few months, but now it’s publicly available & will be henceforth. The Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Ritual Intensive will have a new regular schedule to begin during the dark moon phase of each month. I’m thrilled to be able to bring these comprehensive & powerful workings to more people this year – and I can’t wait to witness the magick that unfolds for my clients in the coming months. 2022 promises to be a transformative & triumphant year! And now, we turn to the work at hand… I’ve chosen The Happy Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This deck is light-hearted & joyful. It has a sugary sweet cuteness to it but also includes the traditional symbols of the Rider-Waite system to create a balanced representation of the archetypes. 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 7 of Cups. In this position, we’re looking at the positive aspects of the card. The 7 of Cups invites us to explore our possibilities & potential through imagination & fantasy. Indulging in daydreams can help us to discover what truly matters to us & gives us a space in which to explore what we really want out of life. Allow your intuition to guide you as you imagine yourself & your future in flights of fancy. Don’t be afraid to dream big! Make your imaginings as colourful & comprehensive as possible by acknowledging the emotions your vivid & vibrant visions inspire. Writing down some of your ideas may help you to uncover new opportunities for healing, happiness & 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 the 5 of Cups. In this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspect of this card. The 5 of Cups cautions us to avoid getting trapped in the past by focusing on negative experiences, trauma, loss or grief. When exploring your imagination, you might notice that your mind starts to replay past events. It can be tempting to jump on those thoughts because they seem rooted in reality in a way that hopes & dreams aren’t. This week, if replays of the past mar your meditations, try a new approach. Perhaps you could thank your unconscious mind for reminding you of the details, & then remind yourself that the past is the past and you don’t need to remember it every day to learn from it. Bring yourself back to the present & extend love & compassion to the parts of yourself that need reassurance. 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. 16th May 2022…Ace of Cups…Make a wish because potent promise, power & potential are pouring into your life! Be open to the possibility that the future is brighter than you anticipated. The Universe reminds you that an open heart can contain more magick than a closed one. Maintain a curious attitude & lean into optimism. Smile today & the Universe smiles with you! 17th May 2022…9 of Cups…Demonstrations of abundance & prosperity abound & surround you. Take the time to 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. Intend to enjoy your day & trust in the Universe to sanctify your every step in life’s sacred dance. 18th May 2022…Ace of Wands…Opportunities for opulence, fun & festivity flourish today! Be ambitious in your aims & let your passion determine your direction in order to bring in the blessings. The Universe reminds you that taking action on your plans can inspire invisible forces to make things happen. Be the master of your destiny by keeping your intentions high & your hopes higher. 19th May 2022…Knight of Pentacles…Slow down & spend some time on your spiritual practice. Self-care & healing rituals offer an opportunity for you to relax, recover & replenish your energy. The Universe reminds you that when you feel you haven’t time to meditate, you need to meditate twice as much. If you’ve been overly busy, today’s the day to rest & regain your equilibrium. 20th May 2022…Hanged Man…Take a step back from your life to appreciate recent changes & challenges. Today’s a day for integration & catching up with yourself. The Universe reminds you that worry is a misuse of your imagination. Stepping apart from your thoughts allows you to identify problematic patterns. Trust in the Universe & move beyond the frontiers of fear & the margins of melancholy. 21st May 2022…Queen of Wands…Your shimmering soul shines & sanctifies every corner of your life with meaning & magick. You have the power to flip the script & change your direction at any moment. The Universe reminds you that your freedom & sovereignty is divinely ordained. Affirm: I am a Child of the Universe; I embrace my essence & live in limitless light. 22nd May 2022…The Moon…Your intuition is piqued & your sensitivity is high. Look after yourself today & avoid the drama. Nurture your spiritual nature through creativity by exploring art, poetry, music or dance. The Universe reminds you that you don’t know everything about yourself – & you don’t need to. Appreciate the magnitude of your mysteriousness by going with the flow today. This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. 9th May 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. 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 Dame Darcy’s Mermaid Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This deck is moving & magickal & filled with oceanic energy, fun & frivolity. It also draws on the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith symbolism & meanings so it’s beautifully balanced in depth & dreaminess! It’s one of my favourite decks for summer & working with it always makes me smile. 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 Knight of Cups. This is the energy of the poet and lover. It’s the seeker of spiritual truth that finds connection with divinity through the creative expression of love. The Knight of Cups recommends us to explore the magick behind the mundane by putting channelling our energy into making things that are beautiful to us. Celebrate the sacred through soul-nourishing self-care rituals to restore your spiritual connection with yourself. Perhaps it’s time for a self-care date-night? Perhaps you could pull out all the stops and treat yourself to a long evening of good food, energy healing & curling up with a favourite film. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, the excellent news is that there is no opposition anticipated. Rather, the deep emotional & spiritual energetic tide is further emphasised by the Queen of Cups. The Queen of Cups has a powerful connection with the unconscious, and with our dreams and visions. Her presence reminds us to listen to the promptings of our intuition & follow our hearts in all we do. Pay attention to repetitive symbols or impressions received in dreams & meditations this week. Your soul has powerful guidance for you. Go with the flow! 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. 9th May 2022…The Moon…Magickal messages from your unconscious mind are ready to surface. Meditation & bathing rituals create opportunities to bring hidden pearls of precious power to your conscious mind. As the lunar current waxes full in your spiritual landscape, new ways of looking at old problems are revealed. The Universe reminds you that healing sleep allows you to integrate inspiration, so get an early night! 10th May 2022…Knight of Wands… Muster your courage & confidence by embracing your eccentricity & accommodating your quirks. The things that make you different are unique gifts. The Universe reminds you that you are exactly the way you are supposed to be. So don’t compare yourself with others. All yardsticks are useless in the face of your immeasurable individuality! Expand into your excellence. 11th May 2022…The Sun…Your inner child seeks something spectacular & sublime. Turn your face towards the light & feel your shining spirit bloom from within. The Universe reminds you that golden good fortune is drawn to the golden goodness of your shimmering soul. Let your light-centric centre shine shamelessly today. Radical optimism & bold positivity create a gloriously great day. 12th May 2022…5 of Cups…Opportunities to learn from past pain in order to progress the path to wholeness are revealed in quiet moments. Put a safe distance between yourself in the past & the person you’ve evolved to be by appreciating the shifts & shake-ups. The Universe reminds you that change can be hard, but it’s essential for evolving the endlessly expanding essence of your divinity. 13th May 2022…2 of Pentacles…Pace yourself to avoid getting stressed out or burnt out today. Practical tasks compete for your time & attention, so be careful not to overcommit. The Universe reminds you that rest, recovery & relaxation are also essential. Organise your schedule to include some time for doing nothing to keep things balanced. Slow & steady wins the race. 14th May 2022…The Chariot…Explore the edges & extremities of your free-spirit today. Take the reins & decide your destiny by picking the path that inspires your spirit to shine. The Universe reminds you that your freedom is expressed in every moment of choice. Make each move with mindfulness & aim high with audacity & ambition. Affirm: I honour my sovereign & sacred soul; by living & loving I AM whole. 15th May 2022…10 of Cups…Fall in love with your life today by appreciating the bounteous benedictions that surround you. Express gratitude for all that makes your heart sing & your spirit soar. A sea of stars shines with eternal light over your spiritual landscape. The Universe reminds you that you are beloved, beautiful & blessed in every moment. Don’t doubt your divinity Child of the Universe. This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. 2nd May 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. This month I’m celebrating 18 years of Mayastar! It’s hard to believe I’ve been teaching & inspiring people to learn healing & meditation techniques in order to enhance their lives for that long – but I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun; and I love what I do with all my heart & soul. In the past 18 years, I’ve worked with over 3000 students all around the world, and taught over 10,000 attunement-based energy healing courses. When I founded Mayastar, I had no idea it would become the beacon for lightworkers it is today. It’s been a fantastic 18 years of heart-centred, soul-inspiring work. Mayastar has continued to grow, evolve, improve & provide an increasingly diverse range of attunement-based energy healing & spiritual development courses – as well as advanced certification options for those who wish to become healers & offer treatments professionally. Mayastar’s magick wouldn’t exist without my beloved students & clients, & the interest & support of those that follow my work here, and on all my social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, DeviantArt, Pinterest & Linkedin). So I want to extend an enthused & impassioned thank you to you all! You are deeply appreciated. Everything happens for a reason, and if you’re reading or listening to this, my love & appreciation is extended to you! I believe people find Mayastar at the time they will benefit most from my work. It’s always been my intention that the Universe guide people to my work when the time is right for them; and that all will prosper & progress through that connection. I look forward to another 18 years of sharing the light and love through Mayastar & am excited to see how things evolve & expand as our journey continues. And now, we turn to the work at hand… I’ve chosen the Paulina Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This deck is whimsical, wonderful & filled with wit & wisdom. 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 Ace of Wands. This card indicates high vibrations & passion this week so look for avenues that allow you to express your enthusiasm & energy in order to fuel the fire of creative force that’s burning within you! Opportunities for closer alignment with your true self are in the offing, but you need to be ready to take action. Don’t sit on the side- lines of your life & applaud – get out there & do something radical! Maintain your confidence by focusing on the things you can do & you’ll end the week feeling greatly empowered & shining like the star you truly are! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this energetic current is reflected in the 7 of Cups. This isn’t a negative card by any means, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadowed aspects of the archetype. This can represent a tendency to dream or fantasize but not take action. It can be about procrastination, but it can also be about limiting your possibilities by engaging with wishful thinking rather than taking practical steps to resolve problems. If you think about cleaning your house 10 times, before you do it once, you’ve reinforced your resistance to the task & spent a lot more time thinking about it than it would have taken to do it. That’s a tendency to be aware of and avoid this week. In order to align with the Ace of Wands energy, be prepared to act. 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. 2nd May 2022…High Priestess…Secret & sacred knowledge is held within, so seek your spiritual support through your higher self during your meditations today. Your intuition & dreams communicate important messages, but its in silence that you’ll hear them most clearly. The Universe reminds you not to be swayed by the opinions & actions of those around you. Keep your own counsel & follow your own path. 3rd May 2022…The Hanged Man…Today’s your opportunity to unwind your mind. Disconnect from the drama & mute notifications for a while to give yourself some space to breathe. The Universe reminds you that mundane tasks can provide opportunities for meditation too. Zone out while you hoover or chant while you wash the dishes. There are paths to peace in the practical projects of the day. 4th May 2022…4 of Wands…Take time to smell the roses & appreciate abundance. Look at your life & recognise the improvement, increase & inspiration that’s bloomed. Your commitment to your dreams pays off. The Universe reminds you that manifestation is continuous & you co-create your reality; so keep your hopes high & count your blessings often. Love your life & your life will love you back! 5th May 2022…6 of Swords…Today promises progress on your spiritual path. Opportunities for deep healing come when repressed thoughts & feelings rise to our conscious awareness without judgement or upset. Create a healing oasis for yourself with some yoga, energy healing or a relaxing ritual bath. The Universe reminds you that rest brings recovery & refreshment. Your soul expands, excels & exceeds past limitations. 6th May 2022…4 of Cups…Face your feelings & front out your floundering motivation. You’re about to find your groove again but you can help the process by bringing your focus back to the present moment. The Universe reminds you that energy flows where attention goes & distractions can deplete your determination. You are lifted & limitlessly loved by a light-centric & life- supporting divine source. 7th May 2022...Strength…Your heart expands to embrace your wildness & illuminates the shadows at the edges of your reality. Radical self-acceptance means extending kindness, compassion & charity to yourself. The Universe reminds you to nourish your soul by loving yourself unconditionally. Your strength is restored through recognising & rejoicing in your realness. Affirm: “My heart embraces my soul; I’m treasured, accepted & whole.” 8th May 2022…2 of Swords…If you’ve been holding back or sitting on the fence, it’s time to dissolve the deadlock & make a decision. You get to determine your direction & you get to do it in your own distinctive way. The Universe reminds you that confidence in your divine self isn’t misplaced. You have reserves of untapped potential within. Align your thoughts with progress & prosper prolifically. This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. With blessings. 25th April 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. 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 find these musings at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My words are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. If you like what you find here, please share this page with your friends. One good deed deserves another – and because your engagement really helps me, if you share this page today, I hope and intend that you will be blessed with bountiful beneficence this week. Today, I’ve chosen the Starlight Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This deck is evocative & has a very shamanic energy. I’m sure it will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us. 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 days for the purpose of progressing the spiritual path & pursuing wholeness is reflected in the card of 2 of Cups. This card represents spiritually nurturing connections on an emotional or spiritual level. The dolphins on the card are reminiscent of child-like playfulness, curiosity & unconditional love. This card is often about therapy & healing – which may involve connection with a soul-mate, spiritual guide or close friend. But equally, it can represent our connection to the inner- child & our internal communication. The presence of this card in this position indicates opportunities for deep healing over the coming week. And for those pursuing their healing journey, working with animal energies, particularly dolphin energy, could be a powerful way to enhance your spiritual practice in the coming days. Consider creating a spiritual safe-space for your healing work with a sacred bathing ritual; you can find inspiration for creating your own soul-nourishing self-care session in the Rose Quartz Bath Sanctuary article on the Mayastar website. And if you work with Dolphin Rainbow Chakra Healing, Dolphin Heart Reiki, or Animal Medicine Empowerments, connecting with Dolphin energy this week could manifest miracles! The second card looks at the potential opposition we may face in pursuing the promises of the first card. And the good news is, no significant oppositional or restrictive energetic currents are anticipated this week! The Empress is the Goddess of Love & she bestows her blessings on those pursuing all forms of spiritual love. She is the goddess of hearth & home, as well as healing – so pursue activities that make you feel connected, cared-for & comfortable. Crafts & creative projects can help you to disconnect from your thoughts. Contemplation & compassion are key. 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 25th April 2022…The High Priestess…Your sensitivity to subtle energy is high & your higher self is communicating with you through dreams & during your meditations.

Quiet your mind to hear & heed the promptings of your spirit today. Tuesday 26th April 2022…Princess of Pentacles…Your entrepreneurial spirit shines!
