Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

__________________________________ January 2022 Musings... 24th January 2022…Welcome back to Maya Muses & I hope the first few weeks of the new year have been smooth sailing for you all! I’m here to elucidate the energies currently at play in our lives for the benefit of those pursuing their spiritual aspirations & healing journeys. If you’re seeking some inspiration & guidance, you’ve come to the right place! I have the Anima Mundi Tarot in hand, and I am raring to go. Let’s explore… The dominant energetic influences that we can tap into over the coming days to enhance our lives most effectively, are reflected in the Knight of Cups. The Knight of Cups is a messenger that carries ideas of love & spiritual guidance. He can represent a lover, soul-mate, or part of our psyche that brings messages from the unconscious mind into our conscious awareness. Pay attention to dreams, impressions & repeating symbols because important information is being revealed. Spend time in meditation & pursue creative projects to help yourself tune in to your intuition. Journalling every day can send a potent message to your unconscious mind by reinforcing the idea that you take its messages seriously; this can increase the clarity & frequency of spiritual guidance from your higher self. There’s great news about the potential opposition we may face on an energetic level this week too! There’s no opposition! Rather, the 3 of Cups reminds us to celebrate every success & share our joy with those around us. There will be a lot to celebrate this week if you choose to align with surging & emerging spiritual tides. Centre your heart on abundance & express your gratitude for every boon, benefit & blessing that comes your way. By thanking The Universe for its benevolence & bounty, you align yourself with opportunities for further demonstrations of prosperity & joy in your life. And now we turn to the cards for each day. These cards elucidate the shifting celestial frequencies that we can align with in order to bring ourselves and our lives into harmony, health & happiness. Monday 24th January 2022…Queen of Cups…You are safe in the heart of the Universe today. Connect with the healing potential of the divine feminine by showing yourself kindness. Compassion for yourself enhances & progresses your healing path. The glow of self-acceptance shines on those around you. Explore every opportunity to share the love today. Tuesday 25th January 2022…The Magician…You have the power & the skills to make things happen today. Trust in your abilities. Be confident & decisive in your approach. The Universe reminds you that you have grown in expertise & wisdom. Harness the magick of your experience by reflecting on your past accomplishments to inspire yourself today. Wednesday 26th January 2022…Page of Wands…The Universe gifts you with opportunities for fun, fantasy & frivolity. Put your passion on parade by engaging your winning smile. Laugh & the world laughs with you today. Focusing on pleasure & enjoyment can help you to stay grounded & thereby progress your healing journey, so don’t hold yourself back! Thursday 27th January 2022…Queen of Wands…The mystery & majesty of the Universe find expression through your life today. You’re in the driving seat of your life & your wondrousness doesn’t go unnoticed! Ignore the drama & avoid those that argue for their limitations. You have the power to make things happen. Trust in your own magick today! Friday 28th January 2022…Knight of Swords…New ideas & ambitions inspire your spirit today. If you aspire to exceed yourself, the Universe will provide you with support. Align with your audacity by daring to act. Awaken your courage by tuning out fear. Your greatness is a reflection of your magnificent soul. Don’t doubt it. Let it shine! Saturday 29th January 2022…Ace of Cups…What you dream of is within your grasp. A cornucopia of blessings flow within you & around you today. The Universe invites you to make a wish because all things are possible. Align with the law of attraction by affirming: “All is good & great & brilliant & beautiful.” Sunday 30th January 2022…King of Cups…Time spent aligning with your inner peace & calm will be time well spent today. Connect with the Universe through energy work or meditation. Find release from disquiet & discord with a healing bath ritual. Your soul is renewed when the sacred areas of your life are acknowledged, accepted & explored. 17th January 2022…Welcome to Maya Muses! Here, I give updates about my work through Mayastar & Maya Magickal, and use tarot to explore the celestial tides to provide spiritual inspiration and guidance for the collective. X January’s energy puts me in mind of Hel – the goddess of the underworld from Norse mythology. I’ve worked extensively with Hel over the years – and often feel her presence during Killing Moon Cycles – as this ritual was developed during a period of intense work with her. For me, January is always her month and that makes for potent Killing Moon rituals! The Killing Moon Cycle is a 30-Day Ritual Intensive to dissolve and resolve negative karmic bonds. It’s effectively a deep-cleanse for your life on an energetic level; but shifts on the etheric levels exert a healing effect in all areas of your life. One of the benefits of tending to the problem of negative karmic bonds (that connect us to negative experiences, toxic relationships, spirit attachments, as well as our own memories and habits), is that the flow of life-force energy is increased. When the flow of life-force energy is optimised, luck turns around, healing can happen, and magick manifests! The Killing Moon Cycle offers the opportunity of an energetic clean-slate – and provides a foundation to build upon. It’s one of my favourite workings because of the transformational changes it brings to people. A new Killing Moon Cycle starts tonight, and I can’t wait! Apart from that, my year planner’s taking shape, and I’ll be working intensively within the Norse tradition this year for my personal magickal practice. So this week I’ve been writing a lot of poetry, and revisiting some of my old invocations to give them a bit of a makeover. Diving deep into creative work brings Odin closer. Although he’s sat on my altar for decades and is a deity I work extensively with (as a Valkyrie & Priestess of Odin, that’s only natural!), when I’m cosied up against the chill and exploring the ethers through writing, I feel his presence in a much more personal way. Having worked with Odin in that way for so many years, spending time with him while writing is like being with family. The spiritual nourishment obtained by lyricising my love of the ancient and wild gods is unsurpassed! Before the ritual’s ever worked, my connection is intensified & the communion is continuous. 2022 promises to be a magickally transformative year for the Mayastar collective! And with that, let’s turn to the tarot to elucidate the mysteries. I’ve chosen the Starlight Tarot for today’s reading. So, sit down, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, and let’s explore… The dominant energy we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the healing journey & pursuing our spiritual growth comes in the form of the King of Pentacles. This card hearkens back to Odin for me. It’s the connection with family, friends, tribe and ancestors that allows wisdom to be passed on. This card recommends you to be open to inspiration and guidance from those in spirit that have a familial connection to you. Guidance from ancestors doesn’t necessarily come in words. Their energy awakens energetic patterns within your energy field so you may experience a feeling, or intuition that reminds you of them. Additionally, the earthiness of the King of Pentacles reminds you to ensure you spend some time grounding your energy this week. Grounding is an essential part of spiritual practice. You might want to explore this by trying out the Grounding Meditation here… The oppositional energy that could block attempts we make to experience the guidance and support of the loving spirits around is reflected in the Lovers card. This isn’t a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow aspect. The Lovers card isn’t only about romantic love; it’s also about self-love. In its shadowed position, this card warns you that neglecting yourself this week may block you from receiving the support, healing and guidance of the spiritual beings that care for you. Align yourself with the sacred, loving connections by spending some time on your self-love rituals. A Rose Quartz Bath Sanctuary Ritual might be a good idea to get you started. And working with energy healing modalities like Light Sanctuary Activation, Crystal Rose Attunement and Unicorn Love & Light. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week. These clarify the shifting energies of each day, and offer advice and encouragement… Monday 17th January 2022…6 of Pentacles…Today your kindness & generosity align you with the kindness & generosity of the Universe. When you share what you have with others, the Universe responds by sharing its beneficence with you. Abundance flows into all areas of your life to work its healing & transformative magick. Tuesday 18th January 2022…Wheel of Fortune…Hold on tight for a radical upswing in your fortunes. The Universe conspires in your favour today. Guard against negative self-talk & limiting beliefs. Be open to new opportunities & trust in the unfolding of the Universe. All good things come to those who believe good things are possible. Wednesday 19th January 2022… Knight of Wands…Today the Universe encourages you to pursue your passion. Devoting some time to the things that set your soul on fire aligns you with the Soul of the Universe. Great things happen when you take the initiative & invest your energy in what resonates with you. Explore this power through creative activities. Thursday 20th January 2022…4 of Cups…Focusing on lack & limitation can lead to dissatisfaction & sadness. Today, the Universe guides you to bring your focus to your blessings. Counting your blessings & expressing gratitude for what you have brings more good things into your life. The law of attraction is at work today! Friday 21st January 2022…Ace of Wands…Seize the day! A furnace of creative energy is burning within you. The potential for a whole new way of being rests within you. The Universe inspires you to start something new, or reignite a neglected hobby. Focusing on your goals allows you to flourish. The Universe supports your fabulous fruitfulness. Saturday 22nd January 2022…The Hanged One…The Universe recommends you to spend some time in meditation or spiritual practice today. Disconnect from the drama & withdraw from the worry by dedicating yourself to relaxation. Find your calm & connect with your inner peace to replenish your soul. You can rest assured that the Universe has your back. Sunday 23rd January 2022…4 of Pentacles…Own your power by being mindful of where you put your energy. Maintaining healthy boundaries means saying no to things that suck the life out of you. The Universe reminds you that you’re a perfect expression of divinity. Looking after your sovereign soul is a sacred ritual. You are blessed. 10th January 2022…The start to 2022 has been a whirlwind of magickal activities. I’ve been working some of my best mojo for new (and returning) customers of Maya Magickal, and last night I completed Blessing Intensive with DA Channellings – which was intensely powerful for both me and the client! That beautiful majestic energy has me feeling inspired & dancing round the house this morning! And later today, I have a bath ritual to perform to the Goddess Melusine combining the Love Flush energy healing system (currently on special offer), then it’s time for some Yin Yoga before I settle into an afternoon of artwork. If you’d like develop your own bathing ritual, here’s an article that may help… But before I get to that, it’s time for me to inquire of the Universe on behalf of the spiritual collective to elucidate the current celestial tides! I’ve chosen the White Sage Tarot for today’s intuitions. As always, take what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. Through my readings I intend to inspire, support & encourage spiritual seekers, and make the spiritual path a little less daunting. Let’s explore… The dominant energetic influences currently at play, that are available for us to tap into for the purpose of progressing the healing journey, are reflected in the King of Swords. This card reminds you that your words and thoughts have power. And that you have the power to master your internal and external communications. If you have a tendency to lose your temper or become impatient during times of stress, this week you could try taking regular time-outs to still your mind with a little meditation. That can help you recognise patterns of negative communication and avoid disagreements and misunderstandings. Good energy healing techniques to support this practice are: Centre of Stillness Activation & Light Sanctuary Activation. The potential opposition we might face this week is reflected in the 2 of Cups. It’s a very positive card, but in this shadowed position emphasises the message of the first card in that the biggest problem we could face this week is miscommunication with ourselves and others. During periods of stress, it can be difficult to tap into our empathy and intuition. We may not handle ourselves and others with the kindness, patience & love we intend to if tension and worry start dictating our thoughts and words. Giving yourself time to find your centre and calm your racing mind will go a long way to ensuring this week pans out with minimal conflict. And now we come to the daily draws. These cards indicate the opportunities and energies that are the strongest for each day. They offer us advice and inspiration for capitalising on the bounteous energies the Universe surrounds us with. Monday 10th January 2022…2 of Pentacles…Your adaptability shines today. Keep yourself in harmony by balancing periods of high activity with periods of rest & leisure. Today promises to be productive, progressive & pleasurable. Approach your work with curiosity & the Universe will bring the fun, transmuting even mundane tasks into something more enjoyable. Tuesday 11th January 2022…The Moon…Divine Feminine energies inspire your spirit. Connect deeply with your intuition before making important decisions. The Universe reminds you that feeling your way forward can help you to get into a flow state where manifestation becomes effortless. Trust in the Universe’s nurturing love & feel the light reflected in your life today. Wednesday 12th January 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Prosperity & abundance touch your life in new & unexpected ways today. Push ahead with confidence as impediments & hindrances are eliminated. Your path ahead is clear. The Universe supports you in your goals & ambitions. Maintain your focus & inspire yourself by affirming: “I can do this! I believe in myself!” Thursday 13th January 2022…Temperance…The Universe recommends you to create an energetic safe-space for self-healing today. Spend time with yourself to restore your equilibrium by focusing on your self-care. Connect with your soul through divinity-nourishing healing practices & meditation. Self-acceptance allows you to transform & grow. Self-love is your key to happiness today. Friday 14th January 2022…7 of Cups…Explore your imagination by giving your mind free-rein. Daydreaming can be a sacred pursuit that helps you to discover your true desires & inspires your progress. The Universe reminds you that through dreams you can gain insight. Look for repeating symbols & magickal numbers that tell you, you’re on the right track! Saturday 15th January 2022…Justice…Your heart hears your thoughts so protect your sacred centre by flipping the script on negative self-talk today. The Universe reminds you that your soul is a reservoir of mystery, magick & magnificence! If your mind, body & soul are in alignment, there’s nothing you can’t do. If you believe it, you can achieve it! Sunday 16th January 2022…The World…You are a force of nature! Take centre stage in your life & recognise your beauty & brilliance. The Universe reminds you that you are a sovereign being, with great power & potential. Make your plans with confidence & openness to the possibilities. Shoot for the moon & even if you miss you’ll land among the stars! It definitely looks like this week could be an excellent opportunity for those seeking spiritual & personal growth!

Facebook - ALM Mystic, Muse & Artist Facebook - Mayastar Twitter Tumblr Pinterest Instagram 3rd January 2022…Welcome to my first spiritual guidance reading for the collective for 2022! I have great hope and good feelings about the coming year. I’ve set my intentions and made some magickal plans. I’ll be working predominantly with Hel and Odin over the coming year. Following the Samhain Portal Yggdrasil Intensive I felt it was a good time to work with the runes more intensively. The runic pillars are the mainstay of my astral Temple! Over the years they have gained potency & complexity with new layers of meaning gleaned from my occult studies and life experience. And part of that process were the years I focused on integrating new philosophies, knowledge & encounters into those pillars! I’ll also be working more with Valkyrie energies and am scheduling some work with a fellow Valkyrie, Witch & Priestess I’ve worked with for over 30 years. After the restrictions from the last couple of years, it feels amazing to be making plans again! The Valkyrie Warrior Heart Tantric Shamanic Ritual will form the backbone of my ritual work for 2022, but I’ll also be writing and choreographing new rituals to harness the new energetic currents & celestial opportunities in the coming months. And I look forward to working magickal intensives for clients this year too. For my healing practice, I’m still undecided. Last year I worked intensively with animal and shamanic energies – particularly Bear & Dolphin medicine. But this year, I’m starting out with my daily Avalonian Meditation (combining the Avalonian Alignment Programme, Star of Avalon Ascension & Avalonian Spectral Activations). The Avalonian Trilogy is my default spiritual practice because it allows me to work with different techniques. Sometimes I prefer to use the mantras; other times I prefer to work with the symbols. But regularly returning to this comprehensive meditation technique has made it a potent foundation for my daily spiritual practice. I hope this year will be one for shining spirituality, shimmering success & scintillating situations for all of my students & clients! If you are reading this, know that I intend all good things for you – and so does the Universe. And now, let’s settle in for the ride and explore the current energetic influences through the medium of the tarot. This reading will look at ways we can tap into the ethereal influences at play for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey. I’ve chosen the Numinous Tarot for today’s musings. As always, take the words that inspire you, and leave the rest behind… The dominant energetic influences open to us for the next 7-days, that are most potent for enhancing the healing journey, are reflected in the 6 of Bells. This card recommends you to take some time out for rest, relaxation & recuperation of your energy following a period of excitement, activity, and possibly, emotional upset. Perhaps the festive period left you feeling a little burnt out or ungrounded? Now’s the perfect opportunity for you to indulge in some self-care. If you work with energy healing modalities, a daily self- healing Reiki treatment will help to replenish your life-force energy and give you space to find your inner calm again. Show yourself the kindness the Universe seeks to offer you. The potential opposition we may face this week comes in the form of the 2 of Candles. This card is about planning, strategizing, and organising yourself for a new start. At this time of year, it’s all about the New Year’s resolution! But in its shadow aspect, this card warns us to be careful about putting energy into making plans to align yourself with what you think you should want to achieve. If your resolutions don’t come from within and support your spiritual aspirations, it may be that they don’t reflect your true intentions. Pursuing a badly made resolution might set you at odds with yourself in the long run. Reflecting on your motivations while making your plans will help you to discern the right path. And now we move to the daily card readings for the week. These readings offer us inspiration for navigating the ever-shifting energetic landscape. Let’s see what the Universe has in store… Monday 3rd January 2022…Explorer of Candles…Today you are guided to follow your passion in order to unlock reserves of confidence & courage. The Universe presents opportunities for adventure & growth & fortune favours the brave! So take that step, make that call, choose your path, & the Universe will back you all the way. Tuesday 4th January 2022…9 of Vials…Make a wish! The ethereal energetic tide has turned & your ship is coming in! Get on board with the magick by setting your intentions & aiming higher. Don’t share your dreams with those who don’t support you. Whisper your inspired hopes to the Universe, & the Universe will deliver today. Wednesday 5th January 2022…The Sun…Prosperity, healing & success flow in abundance today. The magick of manifesting these high-frequency energies comes when you choose to have fun with it! The Universe inspires you with love, light & laughter. Open up to joy by exploiting every opportunity to smile today & you’ll level-up in health & happiness. Thursday 6th January 2022…7 of Tomes…You’ve sown the seeds, added the water & sunlight, but now you need to be patient & allow the Universe to respond. Keep your eyes on the prize & maintain your good intentions. The Universe is working behind the scenes to ensure your success. Peace & patience create space for the magick to manifest. Friday 7th January 2022…4 of Vials…If you’ve a tendency to see the glass as half-empty, the Universe recommends you change your angle today. Connect with your gratitude to align yourself with new possibilities. Give thanks for all the blessings in your life, & the Universe will know what to bless you with next! Saturday 8th January 2022…The Numinous…You’re a child of the stars! Love & light surround you. Seek the mysteries & magickal manifestations of the divine within. The Universe unfolds in your heart & today, you’re reminded of your sacred spiritual nature. Strengthen your soul in silent meditation. You bring the magick: The Universe responds. Sunday 9th January 2022…The Founder…Today promises expansion, growth & triumph. Step into your power with confidence. Be decisive & assertive. Your determination & diligence act as an invocation. The Universe supports your claim to the throne. Today, you’ll exceed your own expectations if you align with the possibilities the Universe has lined up for you! _____________________________________ If you use social media, you can receive my daily spiritual guidance posts to your newsfeed by following me at… www.facebook.com/annalouisemay.muse www.facebook.com/mayastaracademy www.twitter.com/mayastar www.annalouisemay.tumblr.com www.pinterest.com/alm_mayastar www.instagram.com/annalouisemay I wish you a magnificent week!

I’ve been working some of my best mojo for new (and returning) customers of Maya Magickal, and last night I completed Blessing Intensive with DA Channellings – which was intensely powerful for both me and the client! That beautiful majestic energy has me feeling inspired & dancing round the house this morning! And later today, I have a bath ritual to perform to the Goddess Melusine combining the Love Flush energy healing system (currently on special offer), then it’s time for some Yin Yoga before I settle into an afternoon of artwork. If you’d like develop your own bathing ritual, here’s an article that may help… But before I get to that, it’s time for me to inquire of the Universe on behalf of the spiritual collective to elucidate the current celestial tides! I’ve chosen the White Sage Tarot for today’s intuitions. As always, take what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. Through my readings I intend to inspire, support & encourage spiritual seekers, and make the spiritual path a little less daunting. Let’s explore… The dominant energetic influences currently at play, that are available for us to tap into for the purpose of progressing the healing journey, are reflected in the King of Swords. This card reminds you that your words and thoughts have power. And that you have the power to master your internal and external communications. If you have a tendency to lose your temper or become impatient during times of stress, this week you could try taking regular time-outs to still your mind with a little meditation. That can help you recognise patterns of negative communication and avoid disagreements and misunderstandings. Good energy healing techniques to support this practice are: Centre of Stillness Activation & Light Sanctuary Activation. The potential opposition we might face this week is reflected in the 2 of Cups. It’s a very positive card, but in this shadowed position emphasises the message of the first card in that the biggest problem we could face this week is miscommunication with ourselves and others. During periods of stress, it can be difficult to tap into our empathy and intuition. We may not handle ourselves and others with the kindness, patience & love we intend to if tension and worry start dictating our thoughts and words. Giving yourself time to find your centre and calm your racing mind will go a long way to ensuring this week pans out with minimal conflict. And now we come to the daily draws. These cards indicate the opportunities and energies that are the strongest for each day. They offer us advice and inspiration for capitalising on the bounteous energies the Universe surrounds us with. Monday 10th January 2022…2 of Pentacles…Your adaptability shines today. Keep yourself in harmony by balancing periods of high activity with periods of rest & leisure. Today promises to be productive, progressive & pleasurable. Approach your work with curiosity & the Universe will bring the fun, transmuting even mundane tasks into something more enjoyable. Tuesday 11th January 2022…The Moon…Divine Feminine energies inspire your spirit. Connect deeply with your intuition before making important decisions. The Universe reminds you that feeling your way forward can help you to get into a flow state where manifestation becomes effortless. Trust in the Universe’s nurturing love & feel the light reflected in your life today. Wednesday 12th January 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Prosperity & abundance touch your life in new & unexpected ways today. Push ahead with confidence as impediments & hindrances are eliminated. Your path ahead is clear. The Universe supports you in your goals & ambitions. Maintain your focus & inspire yourself by affirming: “I can do this! I believe in myself!” Thursday 13th January 2022…Temperance…The Universe recommends you to create an energetic safe-space for self-healing today. Spend time with yourself to restore your equilibrium by focusing on your self-care. Connect with your soul through divinity- nourishing healing practices & meditation. Self-acceptance allows you to transform & grow. Self-love is your key to happiness today. Friday 14th January 2022…7 of Cups…Explore your imagination by giving your mind free-rein. Daydreaming can be a sacred pursuit that helps you to discover your true desires & inspires your progress. The Universe reminds you that through dreams you can gain insight. Look for repeating symbols & magickal numbers that tell you, you’re on the right track! Saturday 15th January 2022…Justice…Your heart hears your thoughts so protect your sacred centre by flipping the script on negative self-talk today. The Universe reminds you that your soul is a reservoir of mystery, magick & magnificence! If your mind, body & soul are in alignment, there’s nothing you can’t do. If you believe it, you can achieve it! Sunday 16th January 2022…The World…You are a force of nature! Take centre stage in your life & recognise your beauty & brilliance. The Universe reminds you that you are a sovereign being, with great power & potential. Make your plans with confidence & openness to the possibilities. Shoot for the moon & even if you miss you’ll land among the stars! It definitely looks like this week could be an excellent opportunity for those seeking spiritual & personal growth!

I have great hope and good feelings about the coming year. I’ve set my intentions and made some magickal plans. I’ll be working predominantly with Hel and Odin over the coming year. Following the Samhain Portal Yggdrasil Intensive I felt it was a good time to work with the runes more intensively. The runic pillars are the mainstay of my astral Temple! Over the years they have gained potency & complexity with new layers of meaning gleaned from my occult studies and life experience. And part of that process were the years I focused on integrating new philosophies, knowledge & encounters into those pillars! I’ll also be working more with Valkyrie energies and am scheduling some work with a fellow Valkyrie, Witch & Priestess I’ve worked with for over 30 years. After the restrictions from the last couple of years, it feels amazing to be making plans again! The Valkyrie Warrior Heart Tantric Shamanic Ritual will form the backbone of my ritual work for 2022, but I’ll also be writing and choreographing new rituals to harness the new energetic currents & celestial opportunities in the coming months. And I look forward to working magickal intensives for clients this year too. For my healing practice, I’m still undecided. Last year I worked intensively with animal and shamanic energies – particularly Bear & Dolphin medicine. But this year, I’m starting out with my daily Avalonian Meditation (combining the Avalonian Alignment Programme, Star of Avalon Ascension & Avalonian Spectral Activations). The Avalonian Trilogy is my default spiritual practice because it allows me to work with different techniques. Sometimes I prefer to use the mantras; other times I prefer to work with the symbols. But regularly returning to this comprehensive meditation technique has made it a potent foundation for my daily spiritual practice. I hope this year will be one for shining spirituality, shimmering success & scintillating situations for all of my students & clients! If you are reading this, know that I intend all good things for you – and so does the Universe. And now, let’s settle in for the ride and explore the current energetic influences through the medium of the tarot. This reading will look at ways we can tap into the ethereal influences at play for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey. I’ve chosen the Numinous Tarot for today’s musings. As always, take the words that inspire you, and leave the rest behind… The dominant energetic influences open to us for the next 7-days, that are most potent for enhancing the healing journey, are reflected in the 6 of Bells. This card recommends you to take some time out for rest, relaxation & recuperation of your energy following a period of excitement, activity, and possibly, emotional upset. Perhaps the festive period left you feeling a little burnt out or ungrounded? Now’s the perfect opportunity for you to indulge in some self-care. If you work with energy healing modalities, a daily self-healing Reiki treatment will help to replenish your life- force energy and give you space to find your inner calm again. Show yourself the kindness the Universe seeks to offer you. The potential opposition we may face this week comes in the form of the 2 of Candles. This card is about planning, strategizing, and organising yourself for a new start. At this time of year, it’s all about the New Year’s resolution! But in its shadow aspect, this card warns us to be careful about putting energy into making plans to align yourself with what you think you should want to achieve. If your resolutions don’t come from within and support your spiritual aspirations, it may be that they don’t reflect your true intentions. Pursuing a badly made resolution might set you at odds with yourself in the long run. Reflecting on your motivations while making your plans will help you to discern the right path. And now we move to the daily card readings for the week. These readings offer us inspiration for navigating the ever-shifting energetic landscape. Let’s see what the Universe has in store… Monday 3rd January 2022…Explorer of Candles…Today you are guided to follow your passion in order to unlock reserves of confidence & courage. The Universe presents opportunities for adventure & growth & fortune favours the brave! So take that step, make that call, choose your path, & the Universe will back you all the way. Tuesday 4th January 2022…9 of Vials…Make a wish! The ethereal energetic tide has turned & your ship is coming in! Get on board with the magick by setting your intentions & aiming higher. Don’t share your dreams with those who don’t support you. Whisper your inspired hopes to the Universe, & the Universe will deliver today. Wednesday 5th January 2022…The Sun…Prosperity, healing & success flow in abundance today. The magick of manifesting these high-frequency energies comes when you choose to have fun with it!

Thursday 6th January 2022…7 of Tomes…You’ve sown the seeds, added the water & sunlight, but now you need to be patient & allow the Universe to respond. Keep your eyes on the prize & maintain your good intentions. The Universe is working behind the scenes to ensure your success. Peace & patience create space for the magick to manifest. Friday 7th January 2022…4 of Vials…If you’ve a tendency to see the glass as half- empty, the Universe recommends you change your angle today.
