Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

__________________________________ April 2022 Musings... 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.

Changes are in the air & with them come wide & wonderful opportunities. Align with this expansive current by focusing on gratitude during your meditations today.

With blessings. 18th April 2022…Welcome back to Maya Muses. 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 or follow me on social media today, I hope and intend that you will be blessed with bountiful beneficence this week. Today, I’ve chosen the Anima Mundi Tarot for our mystical meanderings. This animal-based deck has depth & magick & 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 the Hierophant. This card represents guiding ancestral spirits & supportive spiritual beings from the natural world that can help us pursue our healing path. The Hierophant can also be a person – someone who imparts wisdom & provides teaching, encouragement or guidance. This card recommends us to be remain open to learning new things & accepting the support of the spiritual beings present in our lives. In this particular deck, the Hierophant has a very shamanic energy. He reminds us to get outside & into the natural world to connect with nature’s support network. Walking or spending time in quiet contemplation outside can help you to naturally ground yourself. Be open to the promptings & guidance of the spiritual-beings and spiritual friends around you. They may have important insights for you this week. The second card identifies any opposition that might block us from attaining the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 4 of Cups. This is not necessarily a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. This card cautions us to guard against apathy and ingratitude. Not recognising our blessings can cause us to focus too much on what we lack. That kind of focus can prevent us from recognising the supportive healing energies and opportunities the Universe presents to us. So be careful not to fall into the trap of negative thinking this week. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 18th April 2022…2 of Cups…Healing opportunities grow through sacred spiritual communion. Connect deeply with a friend or spend time journaling & exploring your soul-scape. The Universe you reminds that spiritual love connects you with everything & everybody, everywhere. Your divinity exists in a state of continuous closeness. Experience the imminence & immediacy of the ineffable by talking (or writing) about your spirituality today. Tuesday 19th April 2022…The Emperor…Today’s your day for getting things done. Stay in your lane so that distractions don’t dampen your determination. Your to-do list faces being cut down to size with the energy & efficiency you’re bringing to the mix. The Universe reminds you that discipline & doggedness demonstrate your dominance. Master your life by working smart, not hard. Planning makes your journey smoother & shorter. Wednesday 20th April 2022…Knight of Cups…Your heart sings with poetic promise & inspires your spirit with mysteries & magick. Open yourself to heart-centred healing by connecting with your creativity. The Universe reminds you that you are the creator & curator of the enchanting energy that flows through your life. Expand your ecstatic soul by putting your heart into your art today. Thursday 21st April 2022…10 of Cups…The wishing well brims with bounteous blessings, beauty & benedictions, so throw in your coin & consider how fantastically things could fare. The Universe reminds you that hope builds bridges to happy heights & entertaining an extravagant end can encourage you to exceed your own expectations. Focusing on prodigious possibilities aligns you with the majestic & miraculous. Friday 22nd April 2022…2 of Pentacles…Balance your work & play to avoid burnout. Putting energy into hobbies, home-making & healing pursuits can help you to hasten harmony today. Enrich your energy with practical pastimes that make you feel good. The Universe reminds you that your attention determines where your energy goes; where your energy goes determines where your life flows. Saturday 23rd April 2022…The Sun…The sun rises in your soul & a new day begins! Any thing’s possible when you let go of preconceptions purveyed by past problems. Liberate yourself from ideas of limitation & lack. The Universe reminds you that when you turn your life towards the light, the shadows fall behind you. Affirm: “Radiant light infuses my soul; my spirit is open; my spirit is whole.” Sunday 24th April 2022…The Hanged Man…Taking some time to rest, recuperate & reflect is essential to your well-being. Meditation or energy healing can bring you back into balance & help you to find your flow. The Universe reminds you that the way you look at things determines your experience. Today progressive perspectives prevail & new possibilities propagate. Look for the opportunities & you’ll find them! 11th April 2022…Welcome to Maya Muses! Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection, to elucidate the ethers & scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings aren’t aimed at any particular person & are meant to be found when the messages are most pertinent to you. My words are intended to uplift & inspire you on your spiritual journey. Please take only what resonates with you, & leave the rest behind. If you like what you find here, please share this page with your friends. Life at Mayastar has settled down after the extra workload I handled last year with the redevelopment of the Mayastar, Maya Magickal and Maya Muses websites. I’ve spent a lot of time enjoying the sunshine & watching Alfie the puppy play, grow & bond with his brother and sisters. It’s been a radical change of pace compared to this time last year and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I feel that the work ethic that got so much done in 2021 stood me in good stead to pursue more creative, magickal & majestic ambitions once the essential work was complete. I’ve maintained that momentum but directed the energy into my artwork, magick, healing & writing – and this year’s going so beautifully so far that it’s definitely in with a chance of being one of the best years of my life! Today, I’ve chosen the Traditional Manga Tarot as our vehicle of clarification. 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 this week for the purpose of progressing the healing journey & supporting us in our spiritual growth is reflected in the Page of Cups. Tune into the whispers of your heart this week. The Universe is sharing important guidance & inspiration with you through symbols, sacred numbers & dreams. This week, you may be productive & practical while maintaining your connection with the sacred. You have one foot in the world of the conscious, and one playfully splashing in the waters of the unconscious mind. It’s important to stay grounded in order to bring through messages & put them into action. Be aware of your balance. If you feel anxious, emotional or find your mind racing, spend some time grounding yourself; if you feel uninspired or energetically blocked, spend some time exploring your imagination by daydreaming, writing poetry, or making something beautiful. And there’s excellent news when it comes to the potential opposition we may face this week: there is no negative, restrictive or oppressive energetic current in line to derail our plans! Rather, the 3 of Cups indicates opportunities for festivities, fun, frivolity & friends. Sharing the love is what it’s all about, so don’t keep your joy to yourself. Take every opportunity to enjoy yourself & express your gratitude for the things that bring you abundance, beauty & happiness this week. Where you focus your energy, things expand – so focus on only the things you want to see more of. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards identify the archetypes we can align with in order to harness opportunities to progress the healing journey & manifest the miraculous each day. Let’s explore… Monday 11th April 2022…9 of Pentacles…Appreciate the comfort & copious opulence in the offing today. This energy surrounds you like a sumptuous shawl of lushness, luxury & love. The Universe reminds you that every day is a special occasion! Being alive is a blessing worthy of acknowledgement & celebration. So enjoy that cake, dance like no-one’s watching & shine like the star you are! Tuesday 12th April 2022…6 of Cups…Give yourself the gift of light- heartedness by finding the funny side of things. Don’t take yourself so seriously! Indulge the inner child by doing something for the sheer enjoyment of it today. The Universe reminds you that your childhood innocence reflects the authenticity of your soul. Remember yourself by delighting in a day of dreams, distractions & delectation. Wednesday 13th April 2022…Ace of Swords…Flip the script by changing your mind, making an important decision, or seeing things in a new light. The clouds clear & clarity shines through. The Universe reminds you that inspiration & illumination can ignite your imagination in a moment. Stay receptive by maintaining your inner calm & keeping a cool head. Meditation makes space for the magnificent today. Thursday 14th April 2022…Ace of Pentacles…You are sowing the seeds of success today. Manifest milk & honey miracles by putting your energy into the things that nourish your soul & inspire your passion. Your intention is what matters. The Universe reminds you that you are the creator of your own world. Don’t invest in pessimism when positivity produces prosperity & progress. Maintain your high ideals. Friday 15th April 2022…Ace of Cups…Bountiful blessings & beneficence flow as fantastic fortune fills your world! Make a wish because today the stars are aligned in your favour & magickal manifestations move you. The Universe reminds you that you are constantly connected & communing with the source of your soul; the nature of that source is pure love & limitless light. Shine on! Saturday 16th April 2022…The Lovers…You are a treasured Child of the Universe. The stardust sugared sweetness of your spirit shines through. The Universe reminds you that your heart is the centre of your world. Love is the power that underpins all of creation & today offers opportunities to experience the oneness of that Love. Affirm: “My heart beats in time with the heart of the Divine” Sunday 17th April 2022…Justice…Reflecting on the past dispassionately allows you to appreciate your power in a new way. Acknowledging the part you played in places you suffered helps to recognise opportunities for growth. The Universe reminds you that your sovereignty is sacred. Self- mastery begins by assessing & accepting reality. Create space in your life so you have room to grow & exceed the parameters of the past. This concludes today’s reading. I hope these words have inspired your mind, uplifted your heart & soothed your soul. Have a beautiful day, and come back soon for more mystical musings. 4th April 2022…Welcome back to Maya Muses! Every week, I select a tarot deck from my extensive collection to elucidate the etheric opportunities & interpret the shifting celestial tides. These readings are open to the collective & are meant to be found whenever the messages are appropriate to you. My words are intended to uplift & inspire; so always take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. If you enjoy what you find here, please share this page with your friends. Today, I’ve chosen the Bonefire Tarot as our vehicle of clarification. So sit back, relax, take a sip of chamomile tea, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming days, for the purpose of progressing the healing journey & path to enlightenment, is reflected in the 10 of Pentacles. This card indicates stability, prosperity & security are foremost. Take the time to enjoy your home, & really appreciate the nurturing environment you’ve created for yourself. Home is the environment in which we share love. Love for our family members, pets & friends. But also, love for ourselves. Look at the ways you express love & extend kindness to yourself through your home this week. The grounding meditation you can find on the Mayastar website would be a good healing practice to help you find balance & calm in the coming days. The second card looks at the potential opposition we may face in pursuing the promises of the first card. Today, there’s excellent news! No significant opposition is anticipated. Rather, the presence of the Ace of Cups indicates a powerful flow of brilliance and blessings into all areas of your life. This week, staying grounded & appreciating your home will be key to manifesting miracles & bringing bountiful benedictions to bear. Maintain an open heart & allow your higher self to guide you to your bliss by checking in with yourself regularly to see how you feel about things. Maintain a positive attitude & believe good things are on their way, because this week, they are! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards identify the most auspicious archetypal forces we can connect with each day in order to optimise our potential & discover new depths of meaning & magick in our lives. Monday 4th April 2022…Strength…Find reserves of personal power by extending unconditional love & acceptance to yourself today. The Universe reminds you that your instincts & intuition are spiritual gifts that can guide you to your authenticity. Elevate your heart by tuning into your feelings & showing yourself compassion. In meditation, rise above self-judgement & self-doubt. You are supported by limitless love. Tuesday 5th April 2022…8 of Pentacles…Discipline & dedication reap rewards. Pay attention to the details & discover new ways of doing things. Good habits, rituals & routines pave the path to success. The Universe reminds you that if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well. Focus on the task in hand & do your best in all you do. Today’s hard-work will pay dividends. Wednesday 6th April 2022…4 of Wands…Today brings opulent opportunities for the dancing of your happy dance! Perhaps a milestone is met, an ambition is achieved, or a friendship is flourishing. Whatever inspires your smile today, it’s time to mark the occasion. The Universe reminds you that celebration can be a sacred ritual that aligns your spirit with gratitude & paves your path to prosperity & progress. Thursday 7th April 2022…The World…You are the master of your life & everything’s coming together beautifully. Today’s a good day to ponder your path going forward & pursue the practices that will support you to continue unfolding, expanding & blooming into the wholeness of your soul. The Universe reminds you that the light within you is boundless. Take a chance & let it shine! Friday 8th April 2022…King of Wands…Creative energy surrounds you & renews your passion for life! Your enthusiasm is contagious & inspires those around you today. Relish your ripeness & express your excitement by channelling your energy into arts, crafts & magick. The Universe reminds you to go with the flow & explore the magnificence of your soul through imagination & innovation. Saturday 9th April 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Comfort, calmness & contentment reign supreme! You are Queen of the Castle today & abundance flows from your fingertips to weave a sumptuous mantle of magnificence around you. The Universe reminds you that taking pleasure in life is a sacred ritual. Renew your spirit with a little self-indulgence. Affirm: Love & luxury well inside; bountiful blessings reside & abide. Sunday 10th April 2022…Page of Pentacles…You’re buzzing with ideas & ingenuity today. Keep a notebook handy because there could be a golden ticket among the fast-flowing fantastical & frivolous notions. Visualising your goals can inspire innovation by helping you pin down your desires. There are paths to progress you haven’t imagined…yet! The Universe reminds you that originality opens doors that conventionality closes. So do things differently. Embrace your eccentricity! _____________________________________ 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!

Meditation or energy healing can bring you back into balance & help you to find your flow. The Universe reminds you that the way you look at things determines your experience. Today progressive perspectives prevail & new possibilities propagate. Look for the opportunities & you’ll find them! 11th April 2022…Welcome to Maya Muses! Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection, to elucidate the ethers & scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings aren’t aimed at any particular person & are meant to be found when the messages are most pertinent to you. My words are intended to uplift & inspire you on your spiritual journey. Please take only what resonates with you, & leave the rest behind. If you like what you find here, please share this page with your friends. Life at Mayastar has settled down after the extra workload I handled last year with the redevelopment of the Mayastar, Maya Magickal and Maya Muses websites. I’ve spent a lot of time enjoying the sunshine & watching Alfie the puppy play, grow & bond with his brother and sisters. It’s been a radical change of pace compared to this time last year and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I feel that the work ethic that got so much done in 2021 stood me in good stead to pursue more creative, magickal & majestic ambitions once the essential work was complete. I’ve maintained that momentum but directed the energy into my artwork, magick, healing & writing – and this year’s going so beautifully so far that it’s definitely in with a chance of being one of the best years of my life! Today, I’ve chosen the Traditional Manga Tarot as our vehicle of clarification. 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 this week for the purpose of progressing the healing journey & supporting us in our spiritual growth is reflected in the Page of Cups. Tune into the whispers of your heart this week. The Universe is sharing important guidance & inspiration with you through symbols, sacred numbers & dreams. This week, you may be productive & practical while maintaining your connection with the sacred. You have one foot in the world of the conscious, and one playfully splashing in the waters of the unconscious mind. It’s important to stay grounded in order to bring through messages & put them into action. Be aware of your balance. If you feel anxious, emotional or find your mind racing, spend some time grounding yourself; if you feel uninspired or energetically blocked, spend some time exploring your imagination by daydreaming, writing poetry, or making something beautiful. And there’s excellent news when it comes to the potential opposition we may face this week: there is no negative, restrictive or oppressive energetic current in line to derail our plans! Rather, the 3 of Cups indicates opportunities for festivities, fun, frivolity & friends. Sharing the love is what it’s all about, so don’t keep your joy to yourself. Take every opportunity to enjoy yourself & express your gratitude for the things that bring you abundance, beauty & happiness this week. Where you focus your energy, things expand – so focus on only the things you want to see more of. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards identify the archetypes we can align with in order to harness opportunities to progress the healing journey & manifest the miraculous each day. Let’s explore… Monday 11th April 2022…9 of Pentacles…Appreciate the comfort & copious opulence in the offing today. This energy surrounds you like a sumptuous shawl of lushness, luxury & love.
