Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

July 2022 Musings... NEXT Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Intensive: 26th August NEXT Luring Moon Abundance 30-Day Intensive: 12th August Run Valdr (Runic Reiki) Course Offer Killing Moon Karmic Reversal Magickal Intensive Special Offer Article - Ancient Norse Runes: Symbols for Healing, Magick & Spiritual Development Mayastar Mantra-Waves Meditation on YouTube: “My Heart Shines & Aligns with Heavenly Light & Love” Deviant Art Gallery - Updated In July 25th July 2022…I’ve chosen the Star Spinner Tarot for our medium today. This deck has an Art Nouveau energy – and a real “fairy tale” vibe. Somehow it feels very modern & very traditional at the same time. The meanings are derived from the Rider-Waite system, but some of the representations are unashamedly untraditional & inclusive! I love it, and 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 week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the King of Swords. This card reminds us of the power we have over our lives through the potency of our words. Our communication with ourselves & others is a magickal process. We translate our feelings & ideas into language in order to share them. When we share lies, we’re effectively performing black magick. And when we try to deceive ourselves in our thoughts, we’re performing black magick on ourselves. The presence of this card in this position tells us to be considerate of our thoughts & words this week. Be mindful of how accurate your translations of your thoughts & ideas into words & self-talk are. Be prepared to change your mind & open yourself to new interpretations of old beliefs. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 6 of Pentacles. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. The 6 of Pentacles is about having plenty in a practical sense & being able to share what you have with others. But this week, it indicates a potential problem in this area. If you’re around people make demands on your time & resources but never reciprocate, this might be something to look out for. It could also be indicative of a tendency to feel you need to buy the approval of others or derive your self-esteem from the opinions of those around you. Be vigilant against tendencies of over-giving 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 25th July 2022…The Lovers…You are a being of love & light & today offers opportunities for you to shine! Express your love for those around you by focusing on kindness. Allow self-love to light up the darkest corners of your life by showing yourself compassion too. The Universe reminds you that appreciation & gratitude are expressions of love. Affirm: “Limitless love sanctifies every aspect of my life” Tuesday 26th July 2022…7 of Wands…Don’t measure yourself against others; but do recognise your progress. You’re equipped with wisdom from challenges you faced in the past. You can trust in yourself today. So let go of some of your worries. Relax & remind yourself you’ve got this. The Universe reminds you that hope is the only thing stronger than fear. Affirm: “I am enough. This day & every day” Wednesday 27th July 2022…King of Pentacles…You are supported by powerful spiritual forces. Your ancestors offer you healing, encouragement & spiritual protection. Tap into new levels of confidence by remembering you’re never alone & you’re always loved. Every step of the way you’re guided by unseen hands. The Universe reminds you that you are the result of a thousand loves. Affirm: “I am free of fear & fortified by love” Thursday 28th July 2022…The Hermit…Take a time-out & sink into the silence. Bring your spiritual practice to the fore. Meditation, prayer, yoga or healing restore the flow of your life. Cut out distractions. Move slowly & quietly through your day & allow peace to suffuse your spirit. The Universe reminds you that a peaceful life begins within your own heart. Affirm: “I align with the peace & perfection of simply being” Friday 29th July 2022…Queen of Swords…Your skills to organise yourself & create your unique life come to the fore today. Focus on the road ahead & don’t deviate from your goals. Remember how far you’ve come. Consciously let go of self-doubt & see the barriers to success evaporate. The Universe reminds you that opportunity lives within every obstacle. Affirm: “I choose a life of peace & prosperity. I progress…progress…progress” Saturday 30th July 2022…2 of Swords…Indecision impedes progress. Sometimes it’s best to choose with the willingness to make a mistake. You can discover more from a mistake than you can from stagnation. Some of your greatest insights have come from mistakes! Trust yourself to learn. The Universe reminds you that a mistake is a lesson, not a loss. Affirm: “I trust myself to exceed myself. I learn. I grow. I shine” Sunday 31st July 2022…9 of Swords…The solution to oppressive thoughts & limiting beliefs can only come from within. Writing them down can allow you to observe them from a safe distance. Recognising your patterns creates opportunities to embrace new ways of being. The Universe reminds you that you that courage is overcoming fear, not eradicating it. Affirm: “I define the life of my dreams. I hope. I love. I live.” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. With blessings. 18th July 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. 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 out, if you like, share or comment, I hope and intend that you will be blessed with bountiful beneficence this week. I’ve chosen the Zillich Tarot for our mystical meanderings today. This deck is based on the Thoth system & has beautiful water-colour images that create a dreamy & magickal world of traditional tarot archetypes. 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 week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the Four of Cups. This card cautions us about missing out on the full picture this week. There are blessings to be had, healing to be progressed & abundance to manifest, but if you have a tendency to focus on the “glass half-empty”, you may miss the openings the Universe intends for you this week. Take the time to pause & look around yourself. Appreciate the things you love & identify the things that bring you joy. Meditation opens the mind to the magick & mystery that underpins the whole of creation. If you can’t see the magick, allow yourself to feel it. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of Justice. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position, we’re dealing with the shadowed aspects of the archetype. The presence of Justice reminds us not to become hyperfixated on things; it reminds us that being too rigid in our routines & trying to micro-manage ourselves & our lives can block us from aligning with the expansive excellence of our eternal nature. Being open to opportunities for growth means keeping an open mind & an open heart 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 July 2022…6 of Wands…Success in all areas is accessible today! It’s time to audaciously step up & take centre stage. Your positivity is contagious. Staying humble allows you to share your smile with those around you. Blessings abound & rebound when you lead by example. The Universe reminds you that you are continuously supported & cherished by divine forces. Affirm: “Blessings abound & success surrounds me” Tuesday 19th July 2022…3 of Pentacles…Collaboration is key to your prosperity & progress today. Seek advice & support from wise allies & give yourself an advantage. Learning from experience – including the experience of others – can hasten your healing journey. The Universe reminds you that when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Affirm: “My sacred soul is a source of infinite wisdom” Wednesday 20th July 2022…Princess of Wands…Whatever you do today, make it fun! Frivolity & pleasure-seeking can allow expression of your majestic & magickal soul. Dance your way forward by picking your soundtrack carefully. You have the power to lift your mood! The Universe reminds you that you that to follow your dreams, you need to define them. Affirm: “Everything is good & great & brilliant & beautiful” Thursday 21st July 2022…7 of Swords…Life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans! Confound your own expectations by doing things you didn’t plan to do today. Thinking outside the box brings brilliance & bounty to within your grasp. The Universe reminds you that freedom from the limitation of anticipation is true freedom! Affirm: “Through uniqueness & magick I shine & align” Friday 22nd July 2022…Temperance…Refine your spirit by setting aside some sacred space for contemplation, relaxation & healing. Disconnecting yourself from social demands & spending time with yourself is essential for your spiritual maintenance. Today, stop doing things long enough to just be yourself. The Universe reminds you that peace & patience are qualities of your authentic spiritual self. Affirm: “My soul is a source of tranquillity & triumph” Saturday 23rd July 2022…Prince of Wands…Explore your creativity by recognising yourself as the canvas. What will you make of yourself today? Choose your colours with care & don’t let others water them down or dull your brilliance. Express your truth in ways that resonate with your individuality. The Universe reminds you that inspiration comes from your soul. Affirm: “I awaken to my sacred splendour. I shine. I shine. I shine.” Sunday 24th July 2022…3 of Cups… Appreciate the little things & celebrate the big ones today! When you recognise the richness of your life, your life replenishes & refreshes your soul. Express gratitude for the abundance & blessings that fill your world. The Universe reminds you that your reality is defined by your mind. Affirm: “Abundance flows & blessings grow. Always & in all ways, I prosper” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. With blessings. 11th July 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. 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 out, if you like, share or comment, I hope and intend that you will be blessed with bountiful beneficence this week. I’ve chosen the Happy Tarot for our mystical meanderings today. This deck features super sweet & sugary imagery but still carries the symbolism of the traditional cards – this means its very well balanced & can express the light and shadowed sides of the archetypes in an accessible way. 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 week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 7 of Cups. In this position, the positive aspects of this card are emphasised & it reveals that progressive possibilities are flowing into our lives. We can explore these new opportunities & derive inspiration & motivation from them through daydreaming & exploring our imagination. Visualising your goals can help you to align your intentions with your hope & the 7 of Cups guides us to imagine what we truly desire as a way to determine our objectives for the next cycle of our lives. If you find exploring your imagination difficult, perhaps start out with a notebook handy so you can write down your impressions & then refer to the notebook the next time you sit down to tune in. Your imagination holds the key to spiritual inspiration this week. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of The Devil. In this position we’re looking at the negative aspect of the card & this is about restriction & the confining of the mind by limiting ideas. Pessimism & cynicism can block us from experiencing hope & keep us shut off from our potential. This week, be aware of habitual negative thinking cycles so that you can break them! If a restrictive or limiting thought breaks through, acknowledge it & release it by saying “Thank you. Goodbye”. Sometimes our negative thoughts are attempts by our mind to protect us from danger or emotional upset. And sometimes they’re totally misplaced! So acknowledging & releasing persistent negative thoughts can help us to recognise the pattern & allow us to move away from it. 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 11th July 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Appreciate the abundance at home & marvel at the magick that surrounds you. Indulge your soul by focusing on what brings you peace & pleasure. Consciously enjoying home comforts is a sacred grounding ritual today. The Universe reminds you that you carry your spiritual home within your heart & are always loved. Affirm: “My heart shines & aligns with heavenly light & love” Tuesday 12th July 2022…3 of Swords…Sometimes our suffering wakes us up to new possibilities. Acknowledge your triggers today because the Universe is guiding you to the places you need to heal. Be patient & kind with yourself. Your emotions are valid & you can accept them without explaining them. The Universe reminds you that grief can be the garden of compassion. Affirm: “I open my heart to healing hope” Wednesday 13th July 2022…Ace of Swords…Inspiration crackles in the corners of your mind. Align with new ideas by creating the mental space to receive them. Declutter your thinking by spending time in meditation today. Your spirit is guiding you to your bliss. The Universe reminds you that you are always connected to the source of your divinity. Affirm: “My soul leads me to a luminous life of limitless love” Thursday 14th July 2022…The World…Take a moment to appreciate your progress today. Trials & tribulations of the past have found resolution. They have taught you & brought you blessings. You have ascended to new heights & today you deserve a pat on the back! The Universe reminds you that you are divinely guided towards the highest expression of your unique soul. Affirm: “I awaken to authenticity. I ascend, ascend, ascend” Friday 15th July 2022…The Hermit…Follow your inner light by disconnecting from the drama & demands of the outside world today. Set some boundaries & set aside some time to attend to your spiritual needs with meditation, yoga or healing. Finding balance brings you back to your authentic self. The Universe reminds you that seclusion is a source of spiritual solace & strength. Affirm: “In silence & solitude, my shining soul speaks” Saturday 16th July 2022…Ace of Pentacles…Your creative juices are flowing & it’s time to channel them into something sumptuous & soulful. Put your money where your mouth is by grounding your goals in reality. Starting a new hobby or progressing a passion project makes magick today. The Universe reminds you that creativity is intelligence at play. Affirm: “I create a life that befits my beautiful & bountiful soul” Sunday 17th July 2022…5 of Cups…Set aside some time & space to create a sanctuary of sacred healing for yourself today. Exploring & expressing your emotions can help you gain wisdom & increase your insight. Extend compassion to yourself with soul-nourishing self-care rituals. The Universe reminds you that only by experiencing darkness can we witness our light. Affirm: “Every day & every night, my soul expands in love & light” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. With blessings. 4th July 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. 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 out, if you like, share or comment, I hope and intend that you will be blessed with bountiful beneficence this week. I’ve chosen the Spiritsong Tarot for our mystical meanderings today. This is my favourite animal-based deck with exquisite illustrations of the archetypes by Paulina Cassidy. It’s beautiful & whimsical in style, but with the depth of meaning that nature & animal spirits bring to the mix. 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 week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the King of Wands. This card expresses the energy & magick of the horse spirit. It’s keywords are “optimism” and “innovation”. And for me, this card recommends us to dance with our desires & allow our inner music to be translated through the way we live our lives. This week’s energy allows you to really get things done, but only if you tap into your innate passion. Your motivation needs to come from inside you if you want to succeed this week. Trust in yourself & don’t allow those who talk about their limitations to influence you into fixating on negative ideas. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of Page of Pentacles. This isn’t a negative card but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspects of the archetype & considering how it might play against the dominant energetic forces elucidated by the first card in particular. This card is about planning & strategizing. It’s about anticipating problems & working around them. And planning can be vital. But it can also be a bit of a trap sometimes. You can end up “what if-ing” your way out of possibilities & talking yourself out of action. Too much Page of Pentacles energy can lead to procrastination. To avoid this hazard, this week try to end any planning work with some kind of action. If you’re writing a new to- do list, make sure you complete & check out two items from it immediately so you don’t break your flow. This week, actions speak louder than words! 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 4th July 2022…4 of Pentacles…Staying in your lane will get you where you want to be today. Other people’s influence may not be conducive to your success. Respond to your inner authority & instincts. Do things in your own unique way & soon you’ll be setting trends! The Universe reminds you that self-sufficiency is the greatest of all wealth. Affirm: “I am aligned with my independent spirit; freedom is my fire” Tuesday 5th July 2022…4 of Swords…Set aside time for rest, relaxation & recuperation. Balance is found by creating the energetic space for yourself to breathe. Energy-work, yoga or listening to music in the garden could create opportunities for spiritual healing today. The Universe reminds you that making time to do nothing can help you to recognise what’s important. Affirm: “My heart is a sanctuary of limitless love & light” Wednesday 6th July 2022…3 of Pentacles…You can learn new skills & develop a deeper understanding of yourself by connecting & collaborating with people around you today. Recognise your essential place in the grand scheme of things. Awaken your unique power by sharing your light with others. The Universe reminds you that you are amazing & that being yourself is sacred thing. Affirm: “I awaken to marvels & miracles by being my magickal self” Thursday 7th July 2022…7 of Swords…A break with convention & the embracing of originality creates openings for prosperity & progress today. Don’t be afraid to rock the boat or buck the trend because your eccentricity is what makes you shine. The Universe reminds you that nobody in the world is better qualified to be you than you are! Affirm: “Authenticity awakens opportunity & opens the door to abundance” Friday 8th July 2022…2 of Pentacles…Adapt & align by consciously balancing your energetic books. Temper high energy activities with time for meditation & quiet. By switching things up you maintain your momentum & success follows. Today, flexibility is strength. The Universe reminds you that freedom & happiness are found in the flexibility & ease with which we move through change. Affirm: “In flex & flow I flourish & find my force” Saturday 9th July 2022…The High Priestess…Your soul whispers secrets of your sacred nature into the silence today. Spend some time in meditation to connect with your spiritual source. Your intuition is guiding you towards new opportunities for meaningful self-expression. Tune-in & listen to your heart. The Universe reminds you that ancient wisdom is communicated through your intuition. Affirm: “I hear my soul-song & dance to its divine decrees” Sunday 10th July 2022…7 of Wands…Trials & tribulations of the past have imbued you with the determination & defiance you need to succeed today. Obstacles that would once have challenged you are easily overcome now. Recognise your progress & accept your actualised authentic self. The Universe reminds you a setback is an opportunity for a comeback. Affirm: “My fearless spirit is reflected in the peace & passion of my heart” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. www.facebook.com/annalouisemay.muse www.facebook.com/mayastaracademy www.twitter.com/mayastar www.youtube.com/c/mayastarofficial www.pinterest.com/alm_mayastar www.instagram.com/annalouisemay www.annalouisemay.wordpress.com I wish you a magnificent week!

Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. 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 out, if you like, share or comment, I hope and intend that you will be blessed with bountiful beneficence this week. I’ve chosen the Happy Tarot for our mystical meanderings today. This deck features super sweet & sugary imagery but still carries the symbolism of the traditional cards – this means its very well balanced & can express the light and shadowed sides of the archetypes in an accessible way. 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 week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 7 of Cups. In this position, the positive aspects of this card are emphasised & it reveals that progressive possibilities are flowing into our lives. We can explore these new opportunities & derive inspiration & motivation from them through daydreaming & exploring our imagination. Visualising your goals can help you to align your intentions with your hope & the 7 of Cups guides us to imagine what we truly desire as a way to determine our objectives for the next cycle of our lives. If you find exploring your imagination difficult, perhaps start out with a notebook handy so you can write down your impressions & then refer to the notebook the next time you sit down to tune in. Your imagination holds the key to spiritual inspiration this week. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of The Devil. In this position we’re looking at the negative aspect of the card & this is about restriction & the confining of the mind by limiting ideas. Pessimism & cynicism can block us from experiencing hope & keep us shut off from our potential. This week, be aware of habitual negative thinking cycles so that you can break them! If a restrictive or limiting thought breaks through, acknowledge it & release it by saying “Thank you. Goodbye”. Sometimes our negative thoughts are attempts by our mind to protect us from danger or emotional upset. And sometimes they’re totally misplaced! So acknowledging & releasing persistent negative thoughts can help us to recognise the pattern & allow us to move away from it. 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 11th July 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Appreciate the abundance at home & marvel at the magick that surrounds you. Indulge your soul by focusing on what brings you peace & pleasure. Consciously enjoying home comforts is a sacred grounding ritual today. The Universe reminds you that you carry your spiritual home within your heart & are always loved. Affirm: “My heart shines & aligns with heavenly light & love” Tuesday 12th July 2022…3 of Swords…Sometimes our suffering wakes us up to new possibilities. Acknowledge your triggers today because the Universe is guiding you to the places you need to heal. Be patient & kind with yourself. Your emotions are valid & you can accept them without explaining them. The Universe reminds you that grief can be the garden of compassion. Affirm: “I open my heart to healing hope” Wednesday 13th July 2022…Ace of Swords…Inspiration crackles in the corners of your mind. Align with new ideas by creating the mental space to receive them. Declutter your thinking by spending time in meditation today. Your spirit is guiding you to your bliss. The Universe reminds you that you are always connected to the source of your divinity. Affirm: “My soul leads me to a luminous life of limitless love” Thursday 14th July 2022…The World…Take a moment to appreciate your progress today. Trials & tribulations of the past have found resolution. They have taught you & brought you blessings. You have ascended to new heights & today you deserve a pat on the back! The Universe reminds you that you are divinely guided towards the highest expression of your unique soul. Affirm: “I awaken to authenticity. I ascend, ascend, ascend” Friday 15th July 2022…The Hermit…Follow your inner light by disconnecting from the drama & demands of the outside world today. Set some boundaries & set aside some time to attend to your spiritual needs with meditation, yoga or healing. Finding balance brings you back to your authentic self.

Affirm: “In silence & solitude, my shining soul speaks” Saturday 16th July 2022…Ace of Pentacles…Your creative juices are flowing & it’s time to channel them into something sumptuous & soulful.

With blessings. 4th July 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. 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 out, if you like, share or comment, I hope and intend that you will be blessed with bountiful beneficence this week. I’ve chosen the Spiritsong Tarot for our mystical meanderings today. This is my favourite animal-based deck with exquisite illustrations of the archetypes by Paulina Cassidy. It’s beautiful & whimsical in style, but with the depth of meaning that nature & animal spirits bring to the mix. 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 week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the King of Wands. This card expresses the energy & magick of the horse spirit. It’s keywords are “optimism” and “innovation”. And for me, this card recommends us to dance with our desires & allow our inner music to be translated through the way we live our lives. This week’s energy allows you to really get things done, but only if you tap into your innate passion. Your motivation needs to come from inside you if you want to succeed this week. Trust in yourself & don’t allow those who talk about their limitations to influence you into fixating on negative ideas. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of Page of Pentacles. This isn’t a negative card but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspects of the archetype & considering how it might play against the dominant energetic forces elucidated by the first card in particular. This card is about planning & strategizing. It’s about anticipating problems & working around them. And planning can be vital. But it can also be a bit of a trap sometimes. You can end up “what if-ing” your way out of possibilities & talking yourself out of action. Too much Page of Pentacles energy can lead to procrastination. To avoid this hazard, this week try to end any planning work with some kind of action. If you’re writing a new to-do list, make sure you complete & check out two items from it immediately so you don’t break your flow. This week, actions speak louder than words! 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 4th July 2022…4 of Pentacles…Staying in your lane will get you where you want to be today. Other people’s influence may not be conducive to your success. Respond to your inner authority & instincts. Do things in your own unique way & soon you’ll be setting trends! The Universe reminds you that self-sufficiency is the greatest of all wealth. Affirm: “I am aligned with my independent spirit; freedom is my fire” Tuesday 5th July 2022…4 of Swords…Set aside time for rest, relaxation & recuperation. Balance is found by creating the energetic space for yourself to breathe. Energy-work, yoga or listening to music in the garden could create opportunities for spiritual healing today. The Universe reminds you that making time to do nothing can help you to recognise what’s important. Affirm: “My heart is a sanctuary of limitless love & light” Wednesday 6th July 2022…3 of Pentacles…You can learn new skills & develop a deeper understanding of yourself by connecting & collaborating with people around you today. Recognise your essential place in the grand scheme of things. Awaken your unique power by sharing your light with others. The Universe reminds you that you are amazing & that being yourself is sacred thing. Affirm: “I awaken to marvels & miracles by being my magickal self” Thursday 7th July 2022…7 of Swords…A break with convention & the embracing of originality creates openings for prosperity & progress today. Don’t be afraid to rock the boat or buck the trend because your eccentricity is what makes you shine. The Universe reminds you that nobody in the world is better qualified to be you than you are! Affirm: “Authenticity awakens opportunity & opens the door to abundance” Friday 8th July 2022…2 of Pentacles…Adapt & align by consciously balancing your energetic books. Temper high energy activities with time for meditation & quiet. By switching things up you maintain your momentum & success follows. Today, flexibility is strength.
