Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

__________________________________ March 2022 Musings... 28th March 2022…Welcome back to the Maya Muses blog. Here, every week, I select a tarot deck from my extensive collection & explore the ethers on behalf of the collective. By using the cards to elucidate the current energetic influences & shifting celestial tides, I seek to provide spiritual guidance, inspiration & support for those pursuing a journey to wholeness. These readings are not aimed at any particular person, so always take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. Today, I’ve chosen the Deviant Moon Tarot as our vehicle for clarification. Let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week, for the purpose of progressing the spiritual path, is reflected in The Chariot. The presence of this card in this position indicates enormous potential for a great leap forwards. The Chariot speaks of movement, momentum and magickal opportunities in the coming days. To connect with the power of this archetype & awaken your soul to the majesty of new experiences, remind yourself of past growth. You’ve overcome challenges, developed new skills & nurtured your wisdom. Whatever doubts you may have about your abilities, remember how you’ve achieved things that seemed beyond you in the past. Be open to the possibility that greater things than you can imagine are possible, and you’ll be aligning with this powerful energetic flow. May you prosper in all you do! The second card looks at the potential opposition we may face in attaining the promises of the first card. Today, there’s excellent news! Any potential opposition can be removed by maintaining good communication and connection with yourself and those around you. This means its more important to talk positively to yourself, and control your thoughts. If you feel anxiety or stress affecting the way you think, go for a walk, take a bath, or grab your journal and have a heart to heart with yourself. You can’t necessarily remove sources of stress, but this week, there are ways to reduce or neutralise them. Seek out a wise friend for advice or comfort if needed. And, entertain the idea that you can be a wise friend to yourself too. And now we come to the daily cards. These cards delineate and define the prevailing energies for each day & arm us with ideas to enhance our spiritual practice, healing & magickal work. Monday 28th March 2022…The Moon…A light radiates within the shadows of the unconscious mind, luring you into magickal dreams. Mystical coincidences illuminate your path. Your intuition is guiding you towards experiences that will nourish your soul. The Universe reminds you to listen to your feelings as much as you listen to your mind. Secrets of the spirit are shared in sacred, silent meditation. Tuesday 29th March 2022…The Empress…Fertile energies flow & abundance abounds! Keep your focus on your highest ideals. Don’t waste your efforts by investing your energy in things that don’t serve you. The Universe reminds you that when you align with your purpose, you are supported by heavenly forces. Feel the love of the divine encouraging & expanding your spirit to prosper in all ways. Wednesday 30th March 2022…King of Pentacles…Contemplate the comforts of hearth & home. Appreciate your place in the world & recognise the value you bring to the lives of those around you. The Universe reminds you that success isn’t about accumulating money & stuff. It’s not about fame & fortune. True wealth is reflected in the quality of your relationships; including the one you have with yourself. Love abundantly. Thursday 31st March 2022…10 of Wands…It’s time to take an inventory of your routine & ensure you leave yourself enough space to breathe. If you’ve a tendency to take on too much, or multi-task as a way of life, stress can become a habit too. The Universe reminds you that self-care & healthy boundaries build bridges to greatness. Be kind to yourself. Rest. Eat. And remember to drink enough water. Friday 1st April 2022…Ace of Cups…Your dreams are within your grasp. Bountiful benedictions are in the offing for grateful hearts. Tune into life by counting your blessings & appreciating the little things. The Universe reminds you that you are a spiritual being, whose nature is love. Open your soul to the abundance around you. Fall in love with the little things. And marvel as the miracles manifest. Saturday 2nd April 2022…Ace of Pentacles…The power of prosperity flows through you & good fortune fills your world. Demonstrations of success surround you & inspire you to exceed yourself. The Universe reminds you that fortune favours the brave. Cultivate courage & confidence by recognising the majesty & magick of the Universe reflected in your soul. Affirm: Bountiful blessings abound & astound. I hold my power; I hold my ground. Sunday 3rd April 2022…Wheel of Fortune…Luck is on your side & this upswing promises exciting possibilities. Anticipate opportunities & you’ll recognise them when they knock. The Universe reminds you that change is inevitable, but you have the power of choice. A determined decision is magick in the making. The power that moves the Universe moves you too. You are sacred, special & supported by spiritual love. 21st March 2022…Welcome to my cosy corner of the internet! Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection, and elucidate the current energetic influences & celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are designed to provide inspiration & guidance on your healing journey – so take what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. If you like what you find here, please share this page with your friends! Today’s reading is drawn from the Tarot of the Little Prince. Let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence that offers us opportunities for growth, healing & happiness over the next 7 days is reflected in the 7 of Swords. This is the card of the sacred rebel! It’s time to confound expectations & do things in your own unique way. In this position, the positive aspects of the card are emphasised & it’s all about breaking routine, changing your mind & taking detours. Making rules & establishing routines is a powerful way to achieve your goals. But this week, you’ll feel your power most intensely when you make an executive decision & switch things up. Maybe you take a day off & inspiration finds you; or you cancel something non-essential in order to attend to some meaningful, needed & well-deserved self-care. Whatever you do this week, strive to surprise yourself & seek spiritual treasure on the untrodden path. The card that represents the potential opposition we may face this week is the 3 of Swords. The position of this card emphasises the shadowed aspects of the archetype & indicates the obstacles that could block us from receiving the benefits & blessings of the first card. This card is often about heartache, heartbreak & hard times emotionally. But as a swords card, it’s tied to our thoughts & the way we communicate with others & ourselves too. In this position, it may represent negative or limiting ideas we have about ourselves & our potential. Perhaps your anxiety pipes up & dissuades you from breaking with convention; perhaps you’re feeling emotional or your hormones are giving your inner-dialogue a sharp tongue! This week, the most potent antidote to being stuck in the doldrums is to remember, a change is as good as a rest. And you can make the change! Now we turn to the daily draws for the week. These cards reveal the shifting energies for each day of the week & give guidance for how we might best tap into the energetic opportunities that support us in our journey to authenticity. Monday 21st March 2022…8 of Cups…It’s time to cut your losses & walk away from the things that no longer serve you. The Universe reminds you that you have to let go of who you were in order to become who you are. If old ways of being intrude, recognise them as artefacts of another time. Allowing the past to be the past aligns you with a fantastic future! Tuesday 22nd March 2022…Knight of Pentacles…Tap into your shamanic potential by connecting with earth & animal energies today. Self-care, energy work & healing rituals are powerful ways to find grounding & peace. The Universe reminds you to slow down, steady yourself & make sure you eat properly today. Nourish your soul by spending time with pets, gardening or walking in nature. Wednesday 23rd March 2022…Knight of Swords…Your spirit is inspired & today’s the day for massive progress in pursuit of your wildest ambitions! Channel some of that energy into imagining how well things could go & explore your desires in dramatic & dazzling daydreams. The Universe reminds you that he who dares, wins. Dare to dream. Dare to deviate. Dare to do it differently. You’re amazing! Thursday 24th March 2022…The Lovers…Love flourishes in all its forms today. Friendship, family, fantasy & flings fill your heart with healing, hope & happiness. The Universe reminds you that love is the power that underpins all of creation. You’re part of that sacred spiritual matrix too. Allow your connection with others to remind you of your connection to the majestic oneness of the Universe. Friday 25th March 2022…King of Wands…You are the authority in your own life & you have the power to transmute your passion into prosperity & progress. Stand tall & dazzle the world with your calm confidence. The Universe reminds you that your potential far exceeds the limited ideas you have about yourself. Express your sacred strength by taking centre stage in your life today. Saturday 26th March 2022…Page of Wands…Make way for fun & frivolity! Let light-heartedness be an antidote to stress by making space for the inner child to play. Doodle! Dream! Dress-up! Do the things that make you feel good today. The Universe reminds you to celebrate the things that move you. Affirm: Beauty & joy arise in me; my heart ascends & dances free! Sunday 27th March 2022…The Moon…Tune into magick & mystery by listening to your spiritual sat-nav today. Your intuition is guiding you to your bliss. Open your heart to the whispers of your soul by taking time for meditation & musing. The Universe reminds you that divinity defines you; your spirit is always in communion with the eternal. In silence & stillness, realise your sacredness. 14th March 2022…Welcome back to Maya Muses! It’s a month since Alfie (aka “The Chihuahua King”) joined my merry little band of misfits & home is feeling like a joyful oasis. He’s fitting in perfectly & picking up his training really fast too. Sometimes he goes on hunting expeditions in the garden when the weather permits – and every time I check on him, he’s made a little collection of interesting things he’s found. The other day he brought me a stone, some twigs, and some leaves! He’s taking to the hedge-witch life perfectly! In my personal ritual work, I’ve been connecting more deeply with Hel & Odin since the end of last year. When Hel was making her presence felt for me, I was surprised because in the UK the pandemic was virtually over; so why was the Goddess of Death & the Underworld coming to me in visions, dreams & during ritual? I thought perhaps her presence indicated a time for the integration of the fruits of the challenges & turbulence experienced collectively around the world because of the pandemic. I felt perhaps I’d be working more with Hel’s healing side (I have always found her a very Queen of Swords energy – capable of being severe & soft simultaneously). However, when the war started, I realised her presence was needed to help heal the collective shadow that’s being triggered by the primitive brutality currently perpetrated at the behest of a malicious minority. The way the civilised world responded with sanctions & support is heartening. But the collective fear of an escalation & proliferation in violence creates an enormous shadow that the whole world needs to integrate. Such diabolical times create opportunities for growth & healing; in fact, our most intensive growth & healing is often borne of struggle & strife. But the scale of this tragedy is beyond most of us to appreciate. I dearly hope that you (dear reader), never experience the kind of suffering the people of Ukraine are currently experiencing. But at the same time, I realise that no-one can witness such destruction, even from afar, without feeling heart-broken. I hope that my work through this blog, Mayastar Academy & Maya Magickal will enable me to help you to navigate your way through these perilous times - however its affecting you. Since the war broke out, I’ve allocated my morning meditation session to sending love, healing & protection to the courageous people of Ukraine using Archangel Michael’s Sapphire Flame. Archangel Michael is the patron saint of the country, and the city of Kiev, so it felt like a powerful energy to work with for this. With the personal updates out of the way, it’s time to explore the current energetic influences & shifting celestial tides to elucidate the ethers on behalf of the collective. This reading is designed to inspire & uplift you on your spiritual journey; so take what resonates with you, & leave the rest behind. I’ve chosen the Crow Tarot for today’s musings. Let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming days for the purpose of progressing the healing journey & advancing along the spiritual path, is reflected in the Knight of Pentacles. The Knight of Pentacles is the slowest moving of the Knights; he’s methodical & ordered. He makes his plans meticulously before he even begins. Ways to awaken this archetype within your energy field in order to benefit from his unique power include allocating time to work on your to-do list, sorting out your accounts, cleaning your house & attending to your practical needs. Spring is almost here so a full-on spring clean isn’t out of the question! Focusing on these kinds of tasks can help you to stay grounded. A bit of housework can even relieve your anxiety by bringing your focus to the physical realm & your physical body. During periods of stress, sometimes hard work can make life easier! And now is one of those times. For me, the Knight of Pentacles is a powerful healing card & the Knight of Pentacles represents the Healer archetype. His presence indicates powerful opportunities for self-healing over the coming week. Allocate yourself some time for energy work to ensure you capitalise on these energetic opportunities. The second card looks at the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. Today, these energies are represented by the 4 of Cups. This card warns us against looking outside of ourselves for completion, or focusing on what we lack rather than appreciating what we have. The Cups indicate that this energy could create emotional blocks that prevent us from appreciating the possibilities for growth this week. Bringing your attention back to your immediate environment & looking at the things you can do in a practical sense will allow you to avoid dissatisfaction, disquiet, disinterest & disappointment in the coming days. Now we turn to the daily draws. These cards will delineate the opportunities the Universe is presenting for each day of the week, & provide ideas for how we might harness them. Monday 14th March 2022…6 of Cups…Looking back at innocent times can inspire nostalgia & encourage hope & happiness. Play can be a powerful ritual for healing & self-development if you choose. The Universe invites you to explore your authenticity by running wild in your imagination today. Dare to dream. Dare to dance. Dare to delight in your light! Tuesday 15th March 2022…Strength…Find your fortitude & realise your resilience by connecting with your inner strength. The Universe reminds you that your power comes from trusting yourself to respond to challenges with wisdom rather than force. Meditate to find the calm confidence of the warrior within. The light crystallises around you to form a shield of protection & peace. Wednesday 16th March 2022…The Lovers…Whatever you do today, put your passion into it! Your enthusiasm, energy & exuberance are contagious when you wear your heart on your sleeve. The Universe reminds you that you are an exclusive, exceptional & endearing energy-being in human form. The energy that comprises your spirit is divine love. By living your life, you express your unique divinity. Thursday 17th March 2022…4 of Pentacles…Maintain healthy energetic boundaries around those focusing on their half-empty glasses. They could sway you to become as blind to your blessings as they are to theirs. Stay in your lane & stay out of the drama. The Universe reminds you that you have power over your life. You decide your attitude. You choose to live in gratitude. You define your magnitude! Friday 18th March 2022…Temperance…Dissolve yourself in a bubble bath or meditate on the element of water to refresh your spirit & soothe your soul. Self-care is sacred & relaxation is a religious ritual today. The Universe reminds you to take a break & give yourself some healing space. It’s been a hectic week & you deserve to be spoilt. Show yourself some love! Saturday 19th March 2022…The High Priestess…Pay attention to the whispers of your soul. Your intuition has important guidance for your healing & progress today. Spend time in silence & solitude to tune into your spiritual self. The Universe reminds you that what you seek is already within you & waiting to be realised. Affirm: “My soul is whole. My spirit is true. I listen to my heart” Sunday 20th March 2022…Ace of Swords…Soaring inspiration surrounds you with potent potential. Allow yourself to get excited about it. Dance your desires into reality by choosing your playlist carefully today. You’re primed for creative & clever ideas to strike – so keep a pen handy! The Universe reminds you that, above the clouds, the sun shines. Tap into the light by rising above doubt, illusion & judgement. 7th March 2022…Welcome to Maya Muses! In this cosy corner of the internet, I grab a tarot deck every week & elucidate the mysteries on behalf of the collective. These readings look at the energetic influences currently affecting us & uncover the ways we might best use those energies to progress the spiritual path. My words are intended to inspire & uplift you; so take what resonates with you, & leave the rest behind. Today’s musings are drawn from The Joie de Vivre Tarot by Paulina Cassidy. This is a whimsical deck with images of strange characters with a very “fey” quality. Fairies are elemental beings & by connecting with them more deeply, we can explore our own relationship to the elemental forces & natural world in a new way. Working with fairy energy can assist in realising spiritual gifts & help us to find healing. If you feel drawn to fairy energies, you can find fairy energy courses here: www.mayastar.net/fairymenu.htm. I work a lot with fey energies when I’m connecting with the Sowilo Pillar of my Astral Temple. This is the rune of solar energy, growth, success & joy – and that’s the energetic tide I’ve been tapping into most this week. So, let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence open to us for the purpose of enhancing & inspiring the healing journey this week is reflected in the 10 of Pentacles. This card is subtitled “Achievement” & indicates powerful prosperity & abundance in all areas. True prosperity isn’t only about financial well-being; it’s also about good health, good friends, happiness & hope. If you’re making decisions about your career & finances, this card may indicate good fortune in those areas this week. The 10 of Pentacles can also be a potent protection card. If you’ve been feeling ungrounded, over-sensitive or fragile recently, the presence of this earthy energy may help to restore your balance. Spend some time in nature to find your feet again. The second card looks at the oppositional energies we may experience this week. These are the elements that could throw a spanner in the works, or block us from realising the promises of the first card. Today, this card is The World. This is fantastic news because there is no shadow aspect to this card! So there are no significant hindering energies to contend with right now. This card represents the beginning of a new way of being; a whole new world in some respect. This could be the culmination of a project, the completion of your studies, the start of a new job, or the integration of recent changes in your life. The subtitle of this card is “Fulfilment” & in combination with the first card, “Achievement”, indicates opportunities for deep satisfaction, security & success. And now we turn to the cards for each day of the week. These cards look at the shifting celestial tides & flow of fate for each day, with ideas about how we might best harness these for a positive outcome. Monday 7th March 2022…Queen of Wands…The garden of your life burgeons abundantly! Everything you’ve planted is coming to fruition with divine timing. Maintain your confidence by visualising a positive outcome. See yourself taking a well-deserved lap of honour & you’ll be watering your garden. The Universe reminds you that where your attention goes, everything grows. Your energy is determining your reality. Tuesday 8th March 2022…Four of Swords…Meditation is a powerful practice & sometimes we need to connect with that space of calm quietness more than others. Today’s one of those days! Withdraw from external stresses & strife & go within to recharge. The Universe reminds you that you carry the source of limitless peace within you. Seeking sacred stillness strengthens the soul today. Wednesday 9th March 2022…9 of Wands…When self-doubt strikes, remember yourself! You’ve surprised yourself with your own genius many times. You can be confident in your problem-solving skills so there’s no need to worry about problems the way you used to. The Universe reminds you that you’re protected & supported by divine love at all times. Thursday 10th March 2022…6 of Cups…Explore the world with child-like innocence today by allowing yourself to take pleasure in the small things. Let the sunset amaze you! Be curious about the future. Find inspiration in fairytales & fantasy. The Universe reminds you that the way you look at things can change those things. Approaching the world without judgement & cynicism reveals the magick! Friday 11th March 2022…4 of Coins…Hold onto your power by being careful where you put your energy. Protecting yourself from gossip, drama & negativity is an important part of self-care. The Universe reminds you that keeping healthy boundaries is part of love. Demonstrate your love for yourself by saying no to things that disquiet your energy. You’re an essential part of this world, so stop treating yourself like an afterthought! Saturday 12th March 2022…The Sun… Enjoy a day in the sun! Allow the healing light of celestial solar energy to embrace you by taking time for fun & frivolity. The Universe reminds you that you are made of the same stuff as the stars. Shamelessly shimmer like the sacred star you truly are! Affirm: “In light & love my spirit shines” Sunday 13th March 2022…Judgement…It’s time to let go of whatever’s been holding you back & allow yourself to be born anew into your life. Change can be a challenge, but it’s essential for growth. The Universe reminds you that letting go of bad habits can create space for great habits. By focusing on growth, you’re empowered. Change becomes a positive & progressive path. 28th February 2022…Welcome to Maya Muses! Every week, I select a tarot deck from my extensive collection, and draw cards on behalf of the collective to elucidate the current energetic influences, & illuminate opportunities for those seeking to progress their spiritual growth and healing. These readings are intended to inspire & uplift you, so take what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. Today’s mystical musings are drawn from the Everyday Witch Tarot. Let’s explore… The dominant energy we can tap into for the purpose of pursuing our spiritual selves & aligning with authenticity & attraction, is reflected in the Page of Wands. This is a card of new beginnings, setting out on adventures & sometimes, getting a bit carried away with the excitement of it all! What ever’s new in your life, wherever your attention & passion is currently invested, this week promises support from the Universe in achieving your goals. But the Page isn’t an expert. He has all the enthusiasm, but may need to develop some skills. Do you need to learn something new to support your ambitions? Have you made the right preparations & plans? Your energy will take you a long way, but make sure you attend to the practicalities too. Your chances of success this week are looking promising! The next card looks at the potential opposition we may face in accessing the blessings of the first card. Today, this is the Death card. This doesn’t mean we may not achieve success because we might actually die! The Death card is about change & transformation. And in its shadowed position, it’s telling us that the thing that might block us from progressing this week could come from parts of the past that we need to move on from, but haven’t. This could be a limiting belief that inspires self-doubt or erodes your self-esteem. It could be a bad habit that distracts you from your intentions, & saps your energy. But the implication with the Death card, is that it’s something you’re ready to move on from but haven’t consciously released yet. If you feel you’re holding onto negative attachments of the past, the Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Ritual Intensive is a great energetic healer! Journalling may also help you to identify any problematic thought habits that are hindering your inspiration. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards look at the shifting celestial tides & energetic influences that are available to us over the coming days… Monday 28th February 2022…Six of Wands…The Universe recognises your progress & applauds your triumphs – no matter how small. Today, those around you may also acknowledge your brilliance. Take a bow! You’re doing so well! Don’t let it go to your head, but allow yourself to revel in your achievements & appreciate yourself. If others have helped you reach your goals, remember to thank them. Tuesday 1st March 2022…Six of Cups…Make some space for self-care today. It’s a day to blow off steam & release your anxiety. Your inner child needs to play so whatever you do, find the fun in it! The Universe reminds you not to take yourself too seriously. There’s a place & time for frivolity. And that place & time is here & now. Colour outside the lines! Wednesday 2nd March 2022…The Moon…Tap into your intuitive side to receive guidance & clarity today. Your intuition is your soul reaching out into the invisible realms & providing you with the inspiration & guidance to progress your spiritual journey. Today, honour your soul by listening carefully to its promptings. The Universe reminds you, you carry your treasure within. Thursday 3rd March 2022…Knight of Swords…You could be “in the zone” today, but take care not to overdo it! Mistakes may be made if you try to do things too quickly or do too many things at once. Keep your mind focused & you’ll achieve wonders today. The Universe supports your pursuit of your goals & reflects your wild energy. Keep on moving – you’re almost there! Friday 4th March 2022…Temperance…Take a deep breath & relax. Unwind your mind with a break in routine. Meditation, Energy Healing or Yoga could help you to find some balance & re-establish your equilibrium. The Universe reminds you that healing & relaxation are essential to your well-being. Today, taking a proper pause progresses your cause. Time allocated to doing nothing won’t be wasted. Saturday 5th March 2022…The World…Things are coming together beautifully. Appreciate how far you’ve come, but take the time to enjoy the present moment. Today offers opportunities to experience unity & joy. The Universe is patting you on the back, celebrating your success & reminding you of your eternal nature. Awaken this energy by affirming: “I embody the wholeness of my shining soul.” Sunday 6th March 2022…3 of Wands…Your hard work pays off today. Wherever you put your attention, the Universe supports you in realising your goals. And your diligence has been noted! Bring the beauty, bounty & beneficence to bear by maintaining your high ideals & keeping a positive attitude. Expressing gratitude for all you have allows boundless blessings to burgeon. Affirm: “Thank 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!

Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection, and elucidate the current energetic influences & celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are designed to provide inspiration & guidance on your healing journey – so take what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. If you like what you find here, please share this page with your friends! Today’s reading is drawn from the Tarot of the Little Prince. Let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence that offers us opportunities for growth, healing & happiness over the next 7 days is reflected in the 7 of Swords. This is the card of the sacred rebel! It’s time to confound expectations & do things in your own unique way. In this position, the positive aspects of the card are emphasised & it’s all about breaking routine, changing your mind & taking detours. Making rules & establishing routines is a powerful way to achieve your goals. But this week, you’ll feel your power most intensely when you make an executive decision & switch things up. Maybe you take a day off & inspiration finds you; or you cancel something non-essential in order to attend to some meaningful, needed & well- deserved self-care. Whatever you do this week, strive to surprise yourself & seek spiritual treasure on the untrodden path. The card that represents the potential opposition we may face this week is the 3 of Swords. The position of this card emphasises the shadowed aspects of the archetype & indicates the obstacles that could block us from receiving the benefits & blessings of the first card. This card is often about heartache, heartbreak & hard times emotionally. But as a swords card, it’s tied to our thoughts & the way we communicate with others & ourselves too. In this position, it may represent negative or limiting ideas we have about ourselves & our potential. Perhaps your anxiety pipes up & dissuades you from breaking with convention; perhaps you’re feeling emotional or your hormones are giving your inner-dialogue a sharp tongue! This week, the most potent antidote to being stuck in the doldrums is to remember, a change is as good as a rest. And you can make the change! Now we turn to the daily draws for the week. These cards reveal the shifting energies for each day of the week & give guidance for how we might best tap into the energetic opportunities that support us in our journey to authenticity. Monday 21st March 2022…8 of Cups…It’s time to cut your losses & walk away from the things that no longer serve you. The Universe reminds you that you have to let go of who you were in order to become who you are. If old ways of being intrude, recognise them as artefacts of another time. Allowing the past to be the past aligns you with a fantastic future! Tuesday 22nd March 2022…Knight of Pentacles…Tap into your shamanic potential by connecting with earth & animal energies today. Self-care, energy work & healing rituals are powerful ways to find grounding & peace. The Universe reminds you to slow down, steady yourself & make sure you eat properly today. Nourish your soul by spending time with pets, gardening or walking in nature. Wednesday 23rd March 2022…Knight of Swords…Your spirit is inspired & today’s the day for massive progress in pursuit of your wildest ambitions! Channel some of that energy into imagining how well things could go & explore your desires in dramatic & dazzling daydreams. The Universe reminds you that he who dares, wins. Dare to dream. Dare to deviate. Dare to do it differently. You’re amazing! Thursday 24th March 2022…The Lovers…Love flourishes in all its forms today. Friendship, family, fantasy & flings fill your heart with healing, hope & happiness. The Universe reminds you that love is the power that underpins all of creation. You’re part of that sacred spiritual matrix too. Allow your connection with others to remind you of your connection to the majestic oneness of the Universe. Friday 25th March 2022…King of Wands…You are the authority in your own life & you have the power to transmute your passion into prosperity & progress. Stand tall & dazzle the world with your calm confidence. The Universe reminds you that your potential far exceeds the limited ideas you have about yourself. Express your sacred strength by taking centre stage in your life today. Saturday 26th March 2022…Page of Wands…Make way for fun & frivolity! Let light-heartedness be an antidote to stress by making space for the inner child to play. Doodle! Dream! Dress-up! Do the things that make you feel good today. The Universe reminds you to celebrate the things that move you. Affirm: Beauty & joy arise in me; my heart ascends & dances free! Sunday 27th March 2022…The Moon…Tune into magick & mystery by listening to your spiritual sat-nav today. Your intuition is guiding you to your bliss. Open your heart to the whispers of your soul by taking time for meditation & musing. The Universe reminds you that divinity defines you; your spirit is always in communion with the eternal. In silence & stillness, realise your sacredness. 14th March 2022…Welcome back to Maya Muses! It’s a month since Alfie (aka “The Chihuahua King”) joined my merry little band of misfits & home is feeling like a joyful oasis. He’s fitting in perfectly & picking up his training really fast too. Sometimes he goes on hunting expeditions in the garden when the weather permits – and every time I check on him, he’s made a little collection of interesting things he’s found. The other day he brought me a stone, some twigs, and some leaves! He’s taking to the hedge-witch life perfectly! In my personal ritual work, I’ve been connecting more deeply with Hel & Odin since the end of last year. When Hel was making her presence felt for me, I was surprised because in the UK the pandemic was virtually over; so why was the Goddess of Death & the Underworld coming to me in visions, dreams & during ritual? I thought perhaps her presence indicated a time for the integration of the fruits of the challenges & turbulence experienced collectively around the world because of the pandemic. I felt perhaps I’d be working more with Hel’s healing side (I have always found her a very Queen of Swords energy – capable of being severe & soft simultaneously). However, when the war started, I realised her presence was needed to help heal the collective shadow that’s being triggered by the primitive brutality currently perpetrated at the behest of a malicious minority. The way the civilised world responded with sanctions & support is heartening. But the collective fear of an escalation & proliferation in violence creates an enormous shadow that the whole world needs to integrate. Such diabolical times create opportunities for growth & healing; in fact, our most intensive growth & healing is often borne of struggle & strife. But the scale of this tragedy is beyond most of us to appreciate. I dearly hope that you (dear reader), never experience the kind of suffering the people of Ukraine are currently experiencing. But at the same time, I realise that no-one can witness such destruction, even from afar, without feeling heart-broken. I hope that my work through this blog, Mayastar Academy & Maya Magickal will enable me to help you to navigate your way through these perilous times - however its affecting you. Since the war broke out, I’ve allocated my morning meditation session to sending love, healing & protection to the courageous people of Ukraine using Archangel Michael’s Sapphire Flame. Archangel Michael is the patron saint of the country, and the city of Kiev, so it felt like a powerful energy to work with for this. With the personal updates out of the way, it’s time to explore the current energetic influences & shifting celestial tides to elucidate the ethers on behalf of the collective. This reading is designed to inspire & uplift you on your spiritual journey; so take what resonates with you, & leave the rest behind. I’ve chosen the Crow Tarot for today’s musings. Let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming days for the purpose of progressing the healing journey & advancing along the spiritual path, is reflected in the Knight of Pentacles. The Knight of Pentacles is the slowest moving of the Knights; he’s methodical & ordered. He makes his plans meticulously before he even begins. Ways to awaken this archetype within your energy field in order to benefit from his unique power include allocating time to work on your to-do list, sorting out your accounts, cleaning your house & attending to your practical needs. Spring is almost here so a full-on spring clean isn’t out of the question! Focusing on these kinds of tasks can help you to stay grounded. A bit of housework can even relieve your anxiety by bringing your focus to the physical realm & your physical body. During periods of stress, sometimes hard work can make life easier! And now is one of those times. For me, the Knight of Pentacles is a powerful healing card & the Knight of Pentacles represents the Healer archetype. His presence indicates powerful opportunities for self-healing over the coming week. Allocate yourself some time for energy work to ensure you capitalise on these energetic opportunities. The second card looks at the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. Today, these energies are represented by the 4 of Cups. This card warns us against looking outside of ourselves for completion, or focusing on what we lack rather than appreciating what we have. The Cups indicate that this energy could create emotional blocks that prevent us from appreciating the possibilities for growth this week. Bringing your attention back to your immediate environment & looking at the things you can do in a practical sense will allow you to avoid dissatisfaction, disquiet, disinterest & disappointment in the coming days. Now we turn to the daily draws. These cards will delineate the opportunities the Universe is presenting for each day of the week, & provide ideas for how we might harness them. Monday 14th March 2022…6 of Cups…Looking back at innocent times can inspire nostalgia & encourage hope & happiness. Play can be a powerful ritual for healing & self-development if you choose. The Universe invites you to explore your authenticity by running wild in your imagination today. Dare to dream. Dare to dance. Dare to delight in your light! Tuesday 15th March 2022…Strength…Find your fortitude & realise your resilience by connecting with your inner strength. The Universe reminds you that your power comes from trusting yourself to respond to challenges with wisdom rather than force. Meditate to find the calm confidence of the warrior within. The light crystallises around you to form a shield of protection & peace. Wednesday 16th March 2022…The Lovers…Whatever you do today, put your passion into it! Your enthusiasm, energy & exuberance are contagious when you wear your heart on your sleeve. The Universe reminds you that you are an exclusive, exceptional & endearing energy-being in human form. The energy that comprises your spirit is divine love. By living your life, you express your unique divinity. Thursday 17th March 2022…4 of Pentacles…Maintain healthy energetic boundaries around those focusing on their half-empty glasses. They could sway you to become as blind to your blessings as they are to theirs. Stay in your lane & stay out of the drama. The Universe reminds you that you have power over your life. You decide your attitude. You choose to live in gratitude. You define your magnitude! Friday 18th March 2022…Temperance…Dissolve yourself in a bubble bath & or meditate on the element of water to refresh your spirit & soothe your soul. Self-care is sacred & relaxation is a religious ritual today. The Universe reminds you to take a break & give yourself some healing space. It’s been a hectic week & you deserve to be spoilt. Show yourself some love! Saturday 19th March 2022…The High Priestess…Pay attention to the whispers of your soul. Your intuition has important guidance for your healing & progress today. Spend time in silence & solitude to tune into your spiritual self. The Universe reminds you that what you seek is already within you & waiting to be realised. Affirm: “My soul is whole. My spirit is true. I listen to my heart” Sunday 20th March 2022…Ace of Swords…Soaring inspiration surrounds you with potent potential. Allow yourself to get excited about it. Dance your desires into reality by choosing your playlist carefully today. You’re primed for creative & clever ideas to strike – so keep a pen handy! The Universe reminds you that, above the clouds, the sun shines. Tap into the light by rising above doubt, illusion & judgement. 7th March 2022…Welcome to Maya Muses! In this cosy corner of the internet, I grab a tarot deck every week & elucidate the mysteries on behalf of the collective. These readings look at the energetic influences currently affecting us & uncover the ways we might best use those energies to progress the spiritual path. My words are intended to inspire & uplift you; so take what resonates with you, & leave the rest behind. Today’s musings are drawn from The Joie de Vivre Tarot by Paulina Cassidy. This is a whimsical deck with images of strange characters with a very “fey” quality. Fairies are elemental beings & by connecting with them more deeply, we can explore our own relationship to the elemental forces & natural world in a new way. Working with fairy energy can assist in realising spiritual gifts & help us to find healing. If you feel drawn to fairy energies, you can find fairy energy courses here: www.mayastar.net/fairymenu.htm. I work a lot with fey energies when I’m connecting with the Sowilo Pillar of my Astral Temple. This is the rune of solar energy, growth, success & joy – and that’s the energetic tide I’ve been tapping into most this week. So, let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence open to us for the purpose of enhancing & inspiring the healing journey this week is reflected in the 10 of Pentacles. This card is subtitled “Achievement” & indicates powerful prosperity & abundance in all areas. True prosperity isn’t only about financial well- being; it’s also about good health, good friends, happiness & hope. If you’re making decisions about your career & finances, this card may indicate good fortune in those areas this week. The 10 of Pentacles can also be a potent protection card. If you’ve been feeling ungrounded, over-sensitive or fragile recently, the presence of this earthy energy may help to restore your balance. Spend some time in nature to find your feet again. The second card looks at the oppositional energies we may experience this week. These are the elements that could throw a spanner in the works, or block us from realising the promises of the first card. Today, this card is The World. This is fantastic news because there is no shadow aspect to this card! So there are no significant hindering energies to contend with right now. This card represents the beginning of a new way of being; a whole new world in some respect. This could be the culmination of a project, the completion of your studies, the start of a new job, or the integration of recent changes in your life. The subtitle of this card is “Fulfilment” & in combination with the first card, “Achievement”, indicates opportunities for deep satisfaction, security & success. And now we turn to the cards for each day of the week. These cards look at the shifting celestial tides & flow of fate for each day, with ideas about how we might best harness these for a positive outcome. Monday 7th March 2022…Queen of Wands…The garden of your life burgeons abundantly! Everything you’ve planted is coming to fruition with divine timing. Maintain your confidence by visualising a positive outcome. See yourself taking a well- deserved lap of honour & you’ll be watering your garden. The Universe reminds you that where your attention goes, everything grows. Your energy is determining your reality. Tuesday 8th March 2022…Four of Swords…Meditation is a powerful practice & sometimes we need to connect with that space of calm quietness more than others. Today’s one of those days! Withdraw from external stresses & strife & go within to recharge. The Universe reminds you that you carry the source of limitless peace within you. Seeking sacred stillness strengthens the soul today. Wednesday 9th March 2022…9 of Wands…When self-doubt strikes, remember yourself! You’ve surprised yourself with your own genius many times. You can be confident in your problem-solving skills so there’s no need to worry about problems the way you used to. The Universe reminds you that you’re protected & supported by divine love at all times. Thursday 10th March 2022…6 of Cups…Explore the world with child-like innocence today by allowing yourself to take pleasure in the small things. Let the sunset amaze you! Be curious about the future. Find inspiration in fairytales & fantasy. The Universe reminds you that the way you look at things can change those things. Approaching the world without judgement & cynicism reveals the magick! Friday 11th March 2022…4 of Coins…Hold onto your power by being careful where you put your energy. Protecting yourself from gossip, drama & negativity is an important part of self-care. The Universe reminds you that keeping healthy boundaries is part of love. Demonstrate your love for yourself by saying no to things that disquiet your energy. You’re an essential part of this world, so stop treating yourself like an afterthought! Saturday 12th March 2022…The Sun… Enjoy a day in the sun! Allow the healing light of celestial solar energy to embrace you by taking time for fun & frivolity. The Universe reminds you that you are made of the same stuff as the stars. Shamelessly shimmer like the sacred star you truly are! Affirm: “In light & love my spirit shines” Sunday 13th March 2022…Judgement…It’s time to let go of whatever’s been holding you back & allow yourself to be born anew into your life. Change can be a challenge, but it’s essential for growth. The Universe reminds you that letting go of bad habits can create space for great habits. By focusing on growth, you’re empowered. Change becomes a positive & progressive path. 28th February 2022…Welcome to Maya Muses! Every week, I select a tarot deck from my extensive collection, and draw cards on behalf of the collective to elucidate the current energetic influences, & illuminate opportunities for those seeking to progress their spiritual growth and healing. These readings are intended to inspire & uplift you, so take what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. Today’s mystical musings are drawn from the Everyday Witch Tarot. Let’s explore… The dominant energy we can tap into for the purpose of pursuing our spiritual selves & aligning with authenticity & attraction, is reflected in the Page of Wands. This is a card of new beginnings, setting out on adventures & sometimes, getting a bit carried away with the excitement of it all! What ever’s new in your life, wherever your attention & passion is currently invested, this week promises support from the Universe in achieving your goals. But the Page isn’t an expert. He has all the enthusiasm, but may need to develop some skills. Do you need to learn something new to support your ambitions? Have you made the right preparations & plans? Your energy will take you a long way, but make sure you attend to the practicalities too. Your chances of success this week are looking promising! The next card looks at the potential opposition we may face in accessing the blessings of the first card. Today, this is the Death card. This doesn’t mean we may not achieve success because we might actually die! The Death card is about change & transformation. And in its shadowed position, it’s telling us that the thing that might block us from progressing this week could come from parts of the past that we need to move on from, but haven’t. This could be a limiting belief that inspires self- doubt or erodes your self-esteem. It could be a bad habit that distracts you from your intentions, & saps your energy. But the implication with the Death card, is that it’s something you’re ready to move on from but haven’t consciously released yet. If you feel you’re holding onto negative attachments of the past, the Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Ritual Intensive is a great energetic healer! Journalling may also help you to identify any problematic thought habits that are hindering your inspiration. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards look at the shifting celestial tides & energetic influences that are available to us over the coming days… Monday 28th February 2022…Six of Wands…The Universe recognises your progress & applauds your triumphs – no matter how small. Today, those around you may also acknowledge your brilliance. Take a bow! You’re doing so well! Don’t let it go to your head, but allow yourself to revel in your achievements & appreciate yourself. If others have helped you reach your goals, remember to thank them. Tuesday 1st March 2022…Six of Cups…Make some space for self-care today. It’s a day to blow off steam & release your anxiety. Your inner child needs to play so whatever you do, find the fun in it! The Universe reminds you not to take yourself too seriously. There’s a place & time for frivolity. And that place & time is here & now. Colour outside the lines! Wednesday 2nd March 2022…The Moon…Tap into your intuitive side to receive guidance & clarity today. Your intuition is your soul reaching out into the invisible realms & providing you with the inspiration & guidance to progress your spiritual journey. Today, honour your soul by listening carefully to its promptings. The Universe reminds you, you carry your treasure within. Thursday 3rd March 2022…Knight of Swords…You could be “in the zone” today, but take care not to overdo it! Mistakes may be made if you try to do things too quickly or do too many things at once. Keep your mind focused & you’ll achieve wonders today. The Universe supports your pursuit of your goals & reflects your wild energy. Keep on moving – you’re almost there! Friday 4th March 2022…Temperance…Take a deep breath & relax. Unwind your mind with a break in routine. Meditation, Energy Healing or Yoga could help you to find some balance & re-establish your equilibrium. The Universe reminds you that healing & relaxation are essential to your well-being. Today, taking a proper pause progresses your cause. Time allocated to doing nothing won’t be wasted. Saturday 5th March 2022…The World…Things are coming together beautifully. Appreciate how far you’ve come, but take the time to enjoy the present moment. Today offers opportunities to experience unity & joy. The Universe is patting you on the back, celebrating your success & reminding you of your eternal nature. Awaken this energy by affirming: “I embody the wholeness of my shining soul.” Sunday 6th March 2022…3 of Wands…Your hard work pays off today. Wherever you put your attention, the Universe supports you in realising your goals. And your diligence has been noted! Bring the beauty, bounty & beneficence to bear by maintaining your high ideals & keeping a positive attitude. Expressing gratitude for all you have allows boundless blessings to burgeon. Affirm: “Thank 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!
