Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

August 2022 Musings... 29th August 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the This Might Hurt Tarot for our medium today. This deck strongly reflects the Rider-Waite tradition but with some modern characters & contemporary twists. It’s also beautiful quality & that makes working with it an absolute pleasure! 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 Fool. In many respects, The Fool is the wisest of all! He pursues his destiny without expectation. He isn’t held back by the past & he isn’t restricted by his beliefs. He’s open to the possibilities & approaches life with curiosity & a light heart. The presence of The Fool in this position recommends us to align with that same philosophy. Try to let go of worries & expectations this week in order to be in the perfect position to explore new opportunities. And don’t feel guilty about enjoying yourself – sometimes it’s the most productive route. 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 3 of Pentacles. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadowed aspect of the archetype. This card is about working with others in order that all participants benefit beyond the limitations of their own abilities. So in shadow, this card warns us about the intentions of others & the effects they might have on our productivity & happiness. Given the presence of The Fool in the first position, this card may be recommending us to be careful of the company we keep. Doom-mongers & naysayers can bring you down & this week, that could block you from recognising the blessings & abundance around you. 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 29th August 2022…4 of Wands…Take a moment to appreciate sources of joy & comfort in your life. Celebrate the little things - like putting your feet up at the end of a productive day & having a relaxing chamomile tea. The Universe reminds you that where you put down roots, you derive nourishment & growth. Affirm: “My home is a sanctuary of healing & happiness” Tuesday 30th August 2022…Wheel of Fortune…Brace yourself for a swift turnaround in fortune! Good things are heading your way. Let go of the past to make way for the future. Consciously release those things that no longer serve you & be open to new ideas. The Universe reminds you that change is the mechanism of growth – don’t resist it! Affirm: “I attract abundance & entice enchantment” Wednesday 31st August 2022…Ace of Wands…Whatever you do today, do it with power & passion! Jump in with both feet & be ok with making waves. Your high energy is contagious & those around you are inspired by your boundless brilliance! The Universe reminds you that wherever you direct your energy, things enlarge, expand & evolve . Affirm: “I decide my destiny by mindfully directing my drive” Thursday 1st September 2022…The World…You were made to shine so disregard the detractors & doom-mongers & do what makes you happy! Inspire yourself with your own luminosity & levity. Appreciate your progress in becoming more yourself. Relish your authenticity & realise your realness. The Universe reminds you that you are a perfect work in progress, just like everyone else! Affirm: “I am what I am & I love myself entirely” Friday 2nd September 2022…3 of Wands…Take a moment to reflect on recent progress. You’re heading in the right direction. Allow some time & space for your confidence to catch up with where you are in order to move on from outmoded self-doubt. The Universe reminds you that miracles manifest when you align your dreams with your desires. Affirm: “Fountains of favour flow to me” Saturday 3rd September 2022…2 of Swords…Today brings opportunities to end a cycle of procrastination. Stop thinking about it & do something! Making mistakes brings you closer to your goals. Boldly take the next step & the one beyond that will reveal itself. The Universe reminds you that fear is powerless when you feel it but act anyway. Affirm: “Courage & confidence conjure paths to prosperity & progress” Sunday 4th September 2022…The Lovers…Love magnifies the magick in all areas of your life. Witness the interplay of energy expressed around you. Feel your connection to the world & the people in your life to appreciate the sacredness of your soulful life. The Universe reminds you that love is the power that connects all things to all things. Affirm: “Love is the song of the Soul of the Universe” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. I hope you’ve enjoyed your time with me today, and that you’ll come back again soon. Have a beautiful week! I wish you peace, prosperity & progress in all you do. With blessings. 22nd August 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Spiritsong Tarot for our medium today. This deck features animals for each card, including the suits & court cards. It’s the most balanced animal deck I own & one I reach for frequently when I’m working with animal medicine energies. 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 Knight of Pentacles. This card reminds us to slow down & take some time to focus on healing. Grounding activities that require physical action can help you to slow down a racing mind & ensure a good night’s sleep – but too much physical activity can be detrimental. Look after your physical health by taking rest when you need it & mindfully choosing food that will nourish your body. Energy healing modalities like Reiki would be good options for your self-care sessions 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 Page of Swords. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. The Page of Swords is open to divine inspiration – but sometimes, can be a bit too open! If we connect too strongly with this archetype it can keep us living our heads & lead to mental exhaustion. Channelling energy & focus into practical tasks like cleaning the house, organising your wardrobe, cutting the grass or folding the laundry can help you to stay centred. 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 22nd August 2022…Knight of Cups…Open your heart to the poetry of the world & witness the magick in the margins of your life. Behold the bountiful blessings that bloom around you & give thanks. The Universe reminds you that love connects all things to all things & you are part of that sacred web. Affirm: “Love lights the way & I dance in the direction of my dreams” Tuesday 23rd August 2022…The High Priestess…Tune into your intuition to progress your path today. Your higher self is guiding you to new opportunities. In still & silent meditation be open to new ideas & look for repeating symbols or numbers in the world around you. The Universe reminds you that your intuition is the voice of your soul. Affirm: “My soul guides me to a loving & luminous life” Wednesday 24th August 2022…10 of Pentacles…Ground yourself by slowing down & focusing on the task at hand. Everything evolves effortlessly but overthinking it might trigger anxiety & leave you feeling upset. Go for a walk or enjoy time in nature to restore your equilibrium. The Universe reminds you that you everything is unfolding in accordance with divine timing. Affirm: “All is well & all will be well” Thursday 25th August 2022…4 of Pentacles…Protect your boundaries & hold onto your energy today. Other peoples’ feelings are not your responsibility – but yours are! Tend to your needs by focusing on activities that nourish your soul. The Universe reminds you that your power lies in determining your destiny & not allowing others to dictate your destination. Affirm: “I hold my magick. I hold my power” Friday 26th August 2022…9 of Pentacles…Abundance & prosperity are demonstrated in all areas of your life. Take some time to experience the elation. Express your appreciation for the magnificence & majesty that surrounds & supports you as you move through your day. The Universe reminds you that gratitude helps you to see what is there, rather than what isn’t. Affirm: “I am grateful for a life of peace, prosperity & progress” Saturday 27th August 2022…Temperance…Healing restores your inner harmony. Relax & rest when you need to & create space for spiritual nourishment. Enjoy a relaxing bath, some energy healing work, or an extended meditation session. Prioritise feeling good today. The Universe reminds you that you are a being of limitless light, worthy of love & life. Affirm: “I embrace my eternal nature & support my spiritual needs” Sunday 28th August 2022…King of Cups…Whatever’s going on around you, you can keep your calm today. Recognise your empathic gifts & protect yourself by noticing when you’re tuning into other peoples’ emotions & bringing your energy back to yourself. The Universe reminds you that your empathy is empowering & opens you up to soulful connection with the world. Affirm: “I am centred in serenity. I flourish & flow” 15th August 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Star Tarot for our medium today. This deck features magickal & shamanic imagery that I find perfect for not only divination but also for pathworking & ritual practices. The rich symbolism is evocative & deep, allowing exploration of the archetypes from new angles. 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 Justice card. This card is about maintaining a dispassionate stance & not getting drawn into the drama. This may be a week to take a step back to avoid being swept up in other people’s problems. Stay in your lane & pursue your plans. Work quietly & methodically. Not everyone needs to know what you’re doing! Healthy boundaries help you maintain your balance & retain your inner peace. 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 Prince of Wands. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. The Prince of Wands can have problems with impulse control – which could block you from maintaining your cool, calm approach this week. This archetype also suggests problems might arise from ignoring red flags, or trying to see the good in people to an unhealthy extent. Be mindful of who you connect with 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 15th August 2022…10 of Pentacles…Appreciate the people in your life & cherish the ways you get to express your soul through connection with them. Your roots provide you with spiritual nourishment. Your ancestors support & encourage you. The Universe reminds you that home is where the heart is & the love you share is the love that lasts forever. Affirm: “I manifest the highest hopes & loving intentions of my foremothers” Tuesday 16th August 2022…7 of Cups…Visualise the future of your dreams to explore new possibilities. See yourself exceeding yourself & enjoying a golden future. Inspire yourself to new levels of hope & happiness with wild dreams & big ideas. All things are possible if you believe all things are possible. The Universe reminds you to live from your imagination, not your history. Affirm: “I am open to greater joy & joyful greatness” Wednesday 17th August 2022…The Hanged Man…Step outside yourself to appreciate your life from a different angle. Witness your wonderfulness & applaud your authenticity. You’re a miraculous & unique soul expressing your divinity through the life you choose to live. The Universe reminds you that you when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Affirm: “I open my heart to the wholeness of my soul” Thursday 18th August 2022…King of Pentacles…Tides of prosperity & progress turn to create abundant opportunities & blessings for you today! Pay attention to the promptings of your intuition that reveal the roads to a rich & resplendent life. The Universe reminds you that living your life is a creative process; being conscious of your choices brings you to your bliss. Affirm: “I manifest magnificence & magick every step of the way” Friday 19th August 2022…Strength…Stand tall & hold your power today. Maintain your boundaries by holding your peace around the gossips & gripers. Don’t be drawn by the drama & give the whingers a wide-berth to avoid depleting yourself. Your integrity protects your life from the ever- shifting sands of superficiality & silliness. The Universe reminds you that energy flows where your attention goes. Affirm: “My strength & sovereignty serve my soul” Saturday 20th August 2022…Temperance…Bring yourself back into balance by focusing on your self-care. Soul-nourishing pursuits like meditation, art & yoga offer you a spiritual retreat. Give yourself a break by doing less & relaxing more today. The Universe reminds you that true healing is the willingness to treat yourself & others better than the past ever did. Affirm: “I heal in a haven of limitless light & love” Sunday 21st August 2022…3 of Swords…Today, emotional discomfort might come from suppressing feelings you struggle to explain. It’s ok to feel things you can’t put into words. Create an emotional safe-space by extending unconditional acceptance & compassion to yourself. The Universe reminds you that your soul always knows what to do to heal itself. Affirm: “I pursue the path of healing & wholeness. One step at a time” 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. 8th August 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the White Sage Tarot for our medium today. This is a nature- based deck with “pip” style cards – which means, with the exception of the court & major arcana, the cards have limited symbolism to draw from. This means it’s not necessarily a good beginner deck – but if you’re immersed & well-versed in the traditional meanings of the cards, pip decks can provide an opportunity for you to fortify your knowledge of the 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 Chariot. This card indicates remission of the obstacles that have been impeding progress recently. Opportunities for progress & personal advancement are now open. Your skills can take you the rest of the way if you harness them & step forward with courage & confidence. Make sure you listen to your intuition throughout the week because important guidance that allows you to avoid repeating problems you encountered in the past echoes in your dreams & meditations. 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 Hermit. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. This week, seeking within might block our attempts to seek without. Greater progress can be made if we focus on looking for opportunities for growth outside of ourselves this week. If you’ve a tendency to isolate yourself or be very self-sufficient, unless you’re looking for the openings outside of yourself, you might miss out. Routines can be powerful ways to change your life – but avoid becoming “stuck in your ways”. 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 8th August 2022…7 of Pentacles…When you’ve done all you can do, it’s time to rest & patiently await the fruits of your labour. Maintain your highest intentions for yourself while you wait to smooth the path to sumptuous success. The Universe reminds you that balance means working when there’s work to do, but resting when there’s not. Affirm: “The future is refined & aligned with hope & happiness” Tuesday 9th August 2022…2 of Pentacles…Go with the flow today because things may not go as intended & greater opportunities for healing & growth can come from a change of plans. Trust in yourself to adapt & overcome. Seamlessly move between the tasks of the day with calm, cool confidence. The Universe reminds you that progress is impossible without change. Affirm: “All is working out & working well” Wednesday 10th August 2022…Queen of Cups…Centre yourself around peace & carve out some space for healing. Show yourself some kindness today! Indulge in a relaxing bath ritual or contemplate the myriad expressions of love in the world around you during your meditations. The Universe reminds you that you are made of magick & magnificence – so expect a magickal life. Affirm: “I expand into my miraculous majesty” Thursday 11th August 2022…3 of Cups…If there’s no obvious cause for celebration, celebrate being alive today! Share your gratitude with those around you & embrace every opportunity to dance your happy dance. Life is beautiful, bountiful & beneficent – so smile till your face aches! The Universe reminds you that “thank you” is the perfect prayer. Affirm: “I am grateful for all that I have been, all that I am & all that I will be” Friday 12th August 2022…Queen of Pentacles…An abundance of love & luxury surrounds you. Find your grounding in pleasure & practicality. Tidy the house, finish a project or work on a hobby. The ordinary rituals of life can be sanctified by the magick you bring to them. The Universe reminds you that every eventuality can be enhanced by good intentions. Affirm: “I hope & intend a life of consummate comfort & completeness” Saturday 13th August 2022…Ace of Cups…Allow hope to set your soul on fire & dare to make a heart-felt wish today. Inspire yourself by uncompromisingly visualising the future you truly desire. The Universe reminds you that divine forces are always conspiring in your favour & aligning yourself with them through positive thinking makes miracles manifest. Affirm: “I attract abundance & accomplishment. I align, align, align” Sunday 14th August 2022…5 of Pentacles…Steer your mind away from focus on lack & limitation. Sometimes things are less than ideal & sometimes things are downright diabolical. But you don’t need to feed the fire by focusing on your fears! The Universe reminds you that you find what you’re looking for in life, so look for the light. Affirm: “I pursue my progress with courage & confidence” 1st August 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Guardian of the Night Tarot for our medium today. This is a new deck to my collection & I’m already deeply bonded to its nature-centric & animal-based beauty! It’s rich in symbolism & because of that, I found it highly readable straight out of the box. 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 Pentacles. This card reminds us to connect with our sense of gratitude this week, by appreciating & luxuriating in the demonstrations of abundance around us. Abundance isn’t only about financial or material success; it’s also about developing meaningful connections with people, enjoying our hobbies, occupying our time in ways that nourish the spirit & nurture our growth. Ground yourself deeply in your life by taking in the majesty & magick that surrounds you. Love yourself. Love your life! 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 Knight 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 Knight of Pentacles is about planning, organising & laying the groundwork. He’s all about working smarter not harder. So in shadow, this card might point to a lack of planning – or too much planning. If you have no plans at all, you may lack the context in life to be able to appreciate where you are right now. If you make a lot of plans, but never put them into action, the same problem might occur but from a different direction. This week, be mindful of your planning & try to strike a healthy balance. 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 1st August 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Life surrounds you with cosiness & comfort when you appreciate the healing haven of hearth & home. Create an oasis for yourself by surrounding yourself with things that make you feel good. Transform the mundane into the sacred through deep appreciation today. The Universe reminds you that home is where the heart is. Affirm: “Healing & happiness are at home in my heart” Tuesday 2nd August 2022…3 of Wands…Set yourself up for success. Scan the horizon for indications of impending opportunity today! Attract what you truly desire by maintaining your high hopes & waiting patiently for your ship to come in, because it’s already on its way. The Universe reminds you that optimism outpaces your limitations. Affirm: “I am aligned with positive & progressive change” Wednesday 3rd August 2022…7 of Pentacles…Stop waiting for everything to fall into place! Things are in place & the world is ready for you! If you don’t appreciate the perfection of your unique & majestic self, draw confidence from knowing that your excellence is esteemed by your spiritual support team. The Universe reminds you are a spiritual being having a human experience. Affirm: “I expand with the universal unfolding. I exceed…exceed…exceed” Thursday 4th August 2022…5 of Swords…Competition can muster motivation; but maintain hope for the success & happiness of those you compete with to avoid conflict. Everyone is a winner at being themselves & living their own life – including you! The Universe reminds you that the only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday. Affirm: “I accept my wholeness & express my soulness” Friday 5th August 2022…Strength…Trust in your ability to respond to life precisely & properly in each moment; trust yourself to discover the next right step from wherever you are, whenever you are. You can rely on your resourcefulness when you listen to your intuition. Find the courage to be adaptable today. The Universe reminds you flexibility is strength. Affirm: “I accept. I adapt. I ascend. I awaken” Saturday 6th August 2022…9 of Wands…Healthy boundaries create room for your soul to shine. Prioritise meeting your own needs today. Give yourself permission to take up space without compromise. Say no to things that diminish & deplete your energy. The Universe reminds you that only those who benefited from your lack of boundaries react negatively when you establish them. Affirm: “I am complete & comfortable. Always & in all ways” Sunday 7th August 2022…6 of Swords…Take time out for rest & recuperation. Tend to yourself with your spiritual practice. Reconnect with your higher self & highest ideals through magickal & meaningful self-care rituals. The Universe reminds you that the spiritual journey is the overcoming of fear & the acceptance of love. Affirm: “My every cell & atom resounds with pure love & divine light” _________________________________ 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!

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 Fool. In many respects, The Fool is the wisest of all! He pursues his destiny without expectation. He isn’t held back by the past & he isn’t restricted by his beliefs. He’s open to the possibilities & approaches life with curiosity & a light heart. The presence of The Fool in this position recommends us to align with that same philosophy.

And don’t feel guilty about enjoying yourself – sometimes it’s the most productive route. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card.

This deck features animals for each card, including the suits & court cards. It’s the most balanced animal deck I own & one I reach for frequently when I’m working with animal medicine energies. 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 Knight of Pentacles. This card reminds us to slow down & take some time to focus on healing. Grounding activities that require physical action can help you to slow down a racing mind & ensure a good night’s sleep – but too much physical activity can be detrimental. Look after your physical health by taking rest when you need it & mindfully choosing food that will nourish your body. Energy healing modalities like Reiki would be good options for your self-care sessions 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 Page of Swords. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. The Page of Swords is open to divine inspiration – but sometimes, can be a bit too open! If we connect too strongly with this archetype it can keep us living our heads & lead to mental exhaustion. Channelling energy & focus into practical tasks like cleaning the house, organising your wardrobe, cutting the grass or folding the laundry can help you to stay centred. 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.

The Universe reminds you that love connects all things to all things & you are part of that sacred web. Affirm: “Love lights the way & I dance in the direction of my dreams” Tuesday 23rd August 2022…The High Priestess…Tune into your intuition to progress your path today. Your higher self is guiding you to new opportunities. In still & silent meditation be open to new ideas & look for repeating symbols or numbers in the world around you. The Universe reminds you that your intuition is the voice of your soul. Affirm: “My soul guides me to a loving & luminous life” Wednesday 24th August 2022…10 of Pentacles…Ground yourself by slowing down & focusing on the task at hand. Everything evolves effortlessly but overthinking it might trigger anxiety & leave you feeling upset. Go for a walk or enjoy time in nature to restore your equilibrium. The Universe reminds you that you everything is unfolding in accordance with divine timing. Affirm: “All is well & all will be well” Thursday 25th August 2022…4 of Pentacles…Protect your boundaries & hold onto your energy today. Other peoples’ feelings are not your responsibility – but yours are! Tend to your needs by focusing on activities that nourish your soul. The Universe reminds you that your power lies in determining your destiny & not allowing others to dictate your destination. Affirm: “I hold my magick. I hold my power” Friday 26th August 2022…9 of Pentacles…Abundance & prosperity are demonstrated in all areas of your life. Take some time to experience the elation.

Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Star Tarot for our medium today. This deck features magickal & shamanic imagery that I find perfect for not only divination but also for pathworking & ritual practices. The rich symbolism is evocative & deep, allowing exploration of the archetypes from new angles. 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 Justice card. This card is about maintaining a dispassionate stance & not getting drawn into the drama. This may be a week to take a step back to avoid being swept up in other people’s problems. Stay in your lane & pursue your plans. Work quietly & methodically. Not everyone needs to know what you’re doing! Healthy boundaries help you maintain your balance & retain your inner peace. 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 Prince of Wands. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. The Prince of Wands can have problems with impulse control – which could block you from maintaining your cool, calm approach this week. This archetype also suggests problems might arise from ignoring red flags, or trying to see the good in people to an unhealthy extent. Be mindful of who you connect with 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.

All things are possible if you believe all things are possible. The Universe reminds you to live from your imagination, not your history. Affirm: “I am open to greater joy & joyful greatness” Wednesday 17th August 2022…The Hanged Man…Step outside yourself to appreciate your life from a different angle.

Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the White Sage Tarot for our medium today. This is a nature-based deck with “pip” style cards – which means, with the exception of the court & major arcana, the cards have limited symbolism to draw from. This means it’s not necessarily a good beginner deck – but if you’re immersed & well-versed in the traditional meanings of the cards, pip decks can provide an opportunity for you to fortify your knowledge of the 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 Chariot. This card indicates remission of the obstacles that have been impeding progress recently. Opportunities for progress & personal advancement are now open. Your skills can take you the rest of the way if you harness them & step forward with courage & confidence. Make sure you listen to your intuition throughout the week because important guidance that allows you to avoid repeating problems you encountered in the past echoes in your dreams & meditations. 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 Hermit. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. This week, seeking within might block our attempts to seek without. Greater progress can be made if we focus on looking for opportunities for growth outside of ourselves this week. If you’ve a tendency to isolate yourself or be very self-sufficient, unless you’re looking for the openings outside of yourself, you might miss out. Routines can be powerful ways to change your life – but avoid becoming “stuck in your ways”. 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 8th August 2022…7 of Pentacles…When you’ve done all you can do, it’s time to rest & patiently await the fruits of your labour. Maintain your highest intentions for yourself while you wait to smooth the path to sumptuous success. The Universe reminds you that balance means working when there’s work to do, but resting when there’s not. Affirm: “The future is refined & aligned with hope & happiness” Tuesday 9th August 2022…2 of Pentacles…Go with the flow today because things may not go as intended & greater opportunities for healing & growth can come from a change of plans. Trust in yourself to adapt & overcome. Seamlessly move between the tasks of the day with calm, cool confidence. The Universe reminds you that progress is impossible without change. Affirm: “All is working out & working well” Wednesday 10th August 2022…Queen of Cups…Centre yourself around peace & carve out some space for healing. Show yourself some kindness today! Indulge in a relaxing bath ritual or contemplate the myriad expressions of love in the world around you during your meditations. The Universe reminds you that you are made of magick & magnificence – so expect a magickal life. Affirm: “I expand into my miraculous majesty” Thursday 11th August 2022…3 of Cups…If there’s no obvious cause for celebration, celebrate being alive today!

The Universe reminds you that every eventuality can be enhanced by good intentions. Affirm: “I hope & intend a life of consummate comfort & completeness” Saturday 13th August 2022…Ace of Cups…Allow hope to set your soul on fire & dare to make a heart-felt wish today. Inspire yourself by uncompromisingly visualising the future you truly desire. The Universe reminds you that divine forces are always conspiring in your favour & aligning yourself with them through positive thinking makes miracles manifest.

Sometimes things are less than ideal & sometimes things are downright diabolical. But you don’t need to feed the fire by focusing on your fears! The Universe reminds you that you find what you’re looking for in life, so look for the light. Affirm: “I pursue my progress with courage & confidence” 1st August 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. Here, I select a tarot deck each week from my extensive collection to elucidate the ethers, and scry the shifting celestial tides on behalf of the collective. These readings are not aimed at any particular person; and you are meant to them at the time their guidance is most relevant to you; so please take only what resonates with you, and leave the rest behind. My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Guardian of the Night Tarot for our medium today. This is a new deck to my collection & I’m already deeply bonded to its nature-centric & animal-based beauty! It’s rich in symbolism & because of that, I found it highly readable straight out of the box. 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 Pentacles. This card reminds us to connect with our sense of gratitude this week, by appreciating & luxuriating in the demonstrations of abundance around us. Abundance isn’t only about financial or material success; it’s also about developing meaningful connections with people, enjoying our hobbies, occupying our time in ways that nourish the spirit & nurture our growth. Ground yourself deeply in your life by taking in the majesty & magick that surrounds you. Love yourself. Love your life! 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 Knight 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 Knight of Pentacles is about planning, organising & laying the groundwork. He’s all about working smarter not harder. So in shadow, this card might point to a lack of planning – or too much planning. If you have no plans at all, you may lack the context in life to be able to appreciate where you are right now. If you make a lot of plans, but never put them into action, the same problem might occur but from a different direction. This week, be mindful of your planning & try to strike a healthy balance. 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 1st August 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Life surrounds you with cosiness & comfort when you appreciate the healing haven of hearth & home.

The Universe reminds you that home is where the heart is. Affirm: “Healing & happiness are at home in my heart” Tuesday 2nd August 2022…3 of Wands…Set yourself up for success. Scan the horizon for indications of impending opportunity today!

The Universe reminds you that optimism outpaces your limitations. Affirm: “I am aligned with positive & progressive change” Wednesday 3rd August 2022…7 of Pentacles…Stop waiting for everything to fall into place! Things are in place & the world is ready for you! If you don’t appreciate the perfection of your unique & majestic self, draw confidence from knowing that your excellence is esteemed by your spiritual support team. The Universe reminds you are a spiritual being having a human experience. Affirm: “I expand with the universal unfolding. I exceed…exceed…exceed” Thursday 4th August 2022…5 of Swords…Competition can muster motivation; but maintain hope for the success & happiness of those you compete with to avoid conflict.

Affirm: “I accept my wholeness & express my soulness” Friday 5th August 2022…Strength…Trust in your ability to respond to life precisely & properly in each moment; trust yourself to discover the next right step from wherever you are, whenever you are.

I awaken” Saturday 6th August 2022…9 of Wands…Healthy boundaries create room for your soul to shine. Prioritise meeting your own needs today.

Always & in all ways” Sunday 7th August 2022…6 of Swords…Take time out for rest & recuperation. Tend to yourself with your spiritual practice.
