Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

September 2022 Musings... 26th September 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 Anima Mundi Tarot for our medium today. These cards are based on the traditional meanings but with nature-based symbolism & artwork. The depictions of dolphins & whales inspired me to choose this deck because the current special offer is for the Dolphin Heart Reiki course (available on the Mayastar website) & the most recent energy healing article on my channel & podcast is related to Dolphin Energy! This deck feels perfect for this week 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 Ace of Cups. This is a beautiful card, reflecting opulent energies & auspicious openings for all of us! The Ace of Cups signifies the flow of abundance in all areas of life bringing an increase in healing, happiness & hope. It brings fulfilment & satisfaction through strengthening love & relationships & inspires us to pursue the habits & hobbies that bring us joy. This is the card of wishes coming true so it’s important to maintain your highest ideals & cultivate a positive attitude in order to ensure that the blessings the Universe has designated for you can find their way into your life. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, the good news is that no opposition is anticipated! Rather, the presence of the King of Cups in this position encourages us to get serious about our manifesting projects & to maintain some grounding while being open to the possibilities. Spending time in nature can help you to balance but another good option is to take a moment to write down your goals or commit your to-do list to paper in order to free up some space in your mind for openness, optimism & opportunity. 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 26th September 2022…7 of Cups…Open your mind to magick by entertaining eclectic & enchanting ideas in your imagination. Define a journey to joy by exploring your desires in technicolour daydreams. Choosing what you truly want brings you halfway to your goals. The Universe reminds you that imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Affirm: “I am open to manifesting miracles & magnificence” Tuesday 27th September 2022…2 of Wands…Today, take action on something that will serve you in the future. Practice makes perfect! Your ideas are worthy of your energy & channelling your intentions into something creative will progress your path to success. The Universe reminds you that if your dreams don’t make you nervous, you may be selling yourself short. Affirm: “Today is the day the Universe delivers” Wednesday 28th September 2022…8 of Wands…Your hard work is paying off! You’re about to reach a tipping point & experience the exhilaration of everything coming together at once. Bountiful blessings boost your bliss today! Create space for success by adopting a positive mindset. The Universe reminds you that if you can believe it, you can achieve it! Affirm: “My soul prospers & my life aligns with its majesty” Thursday 29th September 2022…6 of Cups…Looking back on the good times inspires you to look forward towards some great ones. Nurture yourself with relaxation & reflection today. A self-care bathing ritual or extended meditation re-establishes your inner peace & outer poise. The Universe reminds you that thoughts become things; so indulge yourself with some inspiring ones. Affirm: “Everything is good & great & brilliant & beautiful” Friday 30th September 2022…Knight of Wands…You are the artist & the paint brush in your hand is loaded with the colours you’ve chosen for your life. You are the creator of all you survey & the process of creation is continuous. The Universe reminds you that destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. Affirm: “I choose the path to health & happiness” Saturday 1st October 2022…The Sun…Celebrate the smallest successes & turn this day into a source of soul-nourishing smiles & heart-felt happy dances! Move towards authenticity & alignment with fervour & fortitude, but centre yourself around fun & festivity. Marking the miraculous paves the path to victory. The Universe reminds you that boldness has genius, power & magick in it! Affirm: “I align with audacity & dance towards my dreams” Sunday 2nd October 2022…8 of Pentacles…Keep practicing your skills & appreciate your progress. Be disciplined & methodical in your approach to today. Notice things you’ve improved in & recognise areas you want to work on. The Universe reminds you that your life is a work of art that you create with every choice & action, moment by moment. Affirm: “Blessings abound & abundance surrounds me” 19th September 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 Everyday Witch Tarot for our medium today. These are based on the traditional meanings but have witches & their familiars in every card. I love them for their unique representations of the traditional archetypes that make these cards so accessible & meaningful for modern witches! I’m sure they 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 Queen of Wands. The Queen of Wands is diva of mythical proportions who rules over her life with poise & passion. She enjoys the full extent of her power & potency. Aligning with this energy means taking centre stage & not being afraid to take up space in your own life. It means standing up for yourself & speaking your truth. In short, bringing your focus to expressing your authentic self will stand you in good stead right now. You’re brimming with power & promise & directing that energy with authority & confidence will drive you towards your dreams 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 6 of Cups. 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 Cups is about connection with the inner child & finding healing through nostalgia & fond memories. So in shadow, this card warns us that reflecting too much on the past – or perhaps reflecting too much on negative experiences in the past, could block us from feeling the empowerment of the divine feminine at play. Perhaps in the past you lacked confidence, or grew to define yourself based on the judgements of those around you. And perhaps, this week, it’s time to recognise you’ve changed! 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 19th September 2022…King of Pentacles…Appreciate the comforts of hearth & home by grounding yourself in the little luxuries today. Enjoy a hearty meal or spend time with family. You are surrounded by demonstrations of prosperity. The Universe reminds you that true wealth is reflected in the quality of your relationships - including the one you have with yourself. Affirm: “I am safe, secure & sacred” Tuesday 20th September 2022…8 of Cups…It’s time to let go of the things that no longer serve you to create the space to manifest miracles! Appreciate the wisdom you gained & be vigilant because new opportunities are in the ethers for you today. The Universe reminds you that change is inevitable, but growth is optional. Affirm: “I exceed myself & manifest miracles” Wednesday 21st September 2022…The Star…If you’ve been holding back, today’s the day to unleash your magick! Make a wish with a hopeful heart & maintain a positive attitude while the Universe works out the details for you. Flow with the fantastic & you’ll vibe with the victorious! The Universe reminds you that things could go extraordinarily well. Affirm: “May brilliance, beauty & abundance abound” Thursday 22nd September 2022…The Fool…Pursue authenticity by bucking the trend & doing things in your own way. Embracing non-conformity can be a sacred act that brings you closer to your soul. Forget what you thought you’d learnt in order to really think outside the box! The Universe reminds you that sometimes a leap of faith allows you land among the stars. Affirm: “I trust in the Universe” Friday 23rd September 2022…Queen of Swords…You’ve worked hard to get where you are today, so don’t allow others’ criticisms & complaints to dent your self-esteem. Maintain healthy boundaries & keep your own counsel. You can be confident in yourself & your abilities. You’re doing amazingly well. The Universe reminds you that other peoples’ judgements reflect their truth, not yours. Affirm: “Sovereignty is my strength” Saturday 24th September 2022…Page of Pentacles…Curry your curiosity & muster your motivation by considering new ideas. Today’s a great day for brainstorming, planning & strategizing so keep a notebook handy! Keep your goals in mind because the inspiration that will take you to them is in the offing. The Universe reminds you that your intuition is your soul speaking to you. Affirm: “I align with a soul-nourishing destiny” Sunday 25th September 2022…Ace of Pentacles…You are blessed & abundance fills your world! Tap into the richness & rightness of your life by reflecting on all you have to be grateful for. Gratitude aligns you with glory & greatness in all areas of your life today! The Universe reminds you that energy flows where your attention goes – so keep your ideals high. Affirm: “My life is a bushel of bountiful blessings” 12th September 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 Affirmator’s Tarot for our medium today. These cards have simple illustrations that speak to your whimsical side & inspire your inner child! The deck features animals on every card, so for nature lovers, there’s a huge amount to draw from. 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 sets the tone for the whole week & promises a flurry of activity & sudden shifts towards your goals if you choose to align with this archetype. The Chariot energy works best when the conscious & unconscious mind are in alignment & pulling in the same direction. It may be a good time to use Mayastar Mantra-Waves Meditations (on YouTube), or to explore your motivation through journalling & contemplation. Create an image in your mind of the future you wish to experience & notice any doubts or self-criticism that come up when you think about it. Your triggers hold the key to your success 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 Strength. This is in no way a negative card but in this position we’re looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. Strength is about resilience & fortitude through authenticity, compassion & kindness. In shadow, this energy might be expressed as a tendency to try to achieve a feeling of strength by acting out, being argumentative or somehow forcing the issue. Aligning with limited ideas of Strength could block you from maintaining your integrity & being fully present in your life 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 12th September 2022…The Lovers…Renew your experience of loving connection with others by tending to your own needs today. Deep healing is found in the sanctuary of your home. Surround yourself in a cloak of compassion & comfort your soul with sacred self-care rituals. The Universe reminds you that love is the path to love & there is no other way. Affirm: “My heart shines limitless love” Tuesday 13th September 2022…8 of Wands…Maintain your focus because things are flourishing faster than you ever hoped! Your dreams are manifesting & your wishes have been wooed into reality by your hard work. Be receptive to radical realization & keep smiling! The Universe reminds you that within you is the divine capacity to attract all you desire! Affirm: “I am open to the whisperings of my soul” Wednesday 14th September 2022…The Hierophant…Sometimes you need to be the boss of yourself to make sure things keep moving! Today, your self- discipline & determination hold the key to your success. Plot your path with the wisdom of experience & follow your own footsteps to a fulfilling & fantastic future. The Universe reminds you that self-mastery begins with self-control. Affirm: “I am the master of my destiny” Thursday 15th September 2022…6 of Wands…Your progress has been noted by the Universe & today you’re invited to celebrate your accomplishments! Appreciate recent growth & indulge your ego enough to enjoy taking a bow. Drawing satisfaction from your success can be a sacred ritual. The Universe reminds you that your life should impress yourself, not others. Affirm: “I inspire myself to greatness through gratitude” Friday 16th September 2022…Ace of Pentacles…Invest your energy wisely because the Law of Attraction is continuously at work! New opportunities grow from old ideas when your bring your focus to what you want to see more of. Your life burgeons & brims with bountiful blessings. The Universe reminds you that spiritual success allows you appreciate abundance in new ways. Affirm: “I thrive & prosper, thrive & prosper” Saturday 17th September 2022…10 of Wands…You may have taken on too much & getting your priorities in order will help you to move forward unencumbered. Not everything needs to be accomplished in one day! Every small step takes you closer to the life of your dreams. The Universe reminds you that temperance is requisite for happiness. Affirm: “I move towards magnificence step by step by step” Sunday 18th September 2022…The High Priestess…Your sacred soul sings songs of spiritual healing to your heart today. Listen deeply. Spend time in meditation & relaxation to tune in & discover the guidance your higher-self has for you. Your energy is restored through inspiring dreams & visions. The Universe reminds you that it talks to you through your intuition. Affirm: “My soul-channel is open & clear” 5th September 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 Happy Tarot for our medium today. These cards have everything you’d expect from a traditional Rider-Waite deck but with a whimsical twist. The characters express high vibes & happiness & draw you into a magickal world of marshmallow softened edges, vivid colour & light- hearted luminosity. 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 Swords. But I should also mention, the overall impression of the cards this week indicates significant spiritual shifts, important realisations & fast moving energy. There’s a lot going on & whatever plans you may have had could end up taking a back seat! The Knight of Swords suggests you may get caught up in a bit of a mission as you seek out essential information to make important decisions. But this could also represent some inner work, a major step forward in your healing journey or successful efforts to reprogramme your mind as you move beyond old ways of thinking. This fast & furious Knight-centred energy is further emphasised by the second card 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 Knight of Wands. Given the overall lay of the psychic landscape I feel this Knight emphasises the potency of the energetic influence represented by the first card. But if there is any opposition, it could be that you’re backing a hopeless cause & putting a lot of energy into something that’s not going to work out. However, even if you are in that position, you’re still progressing your path. We learn through love & loss. We learn by making mistakes. So however things pan out for you on your mission this week, recognise what you’ve learnt about yourself & witness how even your mistakes can be well- made! 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 5th September 2022…The Tower…Today may not go as expected, but whatever happens, focus on your foundation! Keep yourself grounded & avoid letting your imagination inspire your anxiety. You can keep your head even if those around you are losing theirs. The Universe reminds you that clarity is not found through intellect, but through stillness. Affirm: “My spiritual seat is sacred, stable & enduring” Tuesday 6th September 2022…The Moon…Things aren’t always as they seem & the light of your intuition reveals hidden truths. Tune in. Your soul has important guidance for you today. Look for repeating symbols & numbers that show you you’re on the right track. The Universe reminds you that intuition is your spiritual GPS – keep notifications on! Affirm: “I am open to the whisperings of my soul” Wednesday 7th September 2022…The Sun…Smile & the world smiles with you! Your light-hearted side ensures fun & festivity. Don’t hold back & keep your happy dance on hand because today promises opportunities to celebrate! The Universe reminds you that joy doesn’t simply happen to you – you have to choose it & then keep choosing it. Affirm: “My life brims with beauty, brilliance & bliss” Thursday 8th September 2022…The Hermit…Sometimes you need a break. A time for rest & reflection. A time to attend to your own healing & spiritual needs. That time is today! Create a sacred sanctuary for yourself. Spend time in silent meditation. The Universe reminds you that being true to yourself is a heroic path. Affirm: “I embrace my authenticity & see by the light of truth” Friday 9th September 2022…Knight of Cups…Your heart is your centre. Love is the power that moves the Universe & today, wherever you put your loving attention blessings burgeon & bloom! Fall in love with your life as it is right now. The Universe reminds you that love is limitless & reflects the reality of your divine nature. Affirm: “My life is the love affair of my soul” Saturday 10th September 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Luxuriate in the comforts of home & discover endless opportunities to feel & express your gratitude. Enjoy a nourishing home-cooked meal or a relaxing bath ritual to ground yourself in the majesty & magnificence of your magickal life. The Universe reminds you that a heart-felt “Thank you” can be the perfect prayer. Affirm: “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you” Sunday 11th September 2022…The Wheel of Fortune…After some recent turbulence, things are moving in a delightful direction. A new leaf has turned & important decisions have been made. It’s time to plot a new course & move towards your dreams & ambitions with renewed enthusiasm & passion. The Universe reminds you that your attitude determines your experience. Affirm: “My life is in flow & I flourish fruitfully” _________________________________ 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!

This card sets the tone for the whole week & promises a flurry of activity & sudden shifts towards your goals if you choose to align with this archetype. The Chariot energy works best when the conscious & unconscious mind are in alignment & pulling in the same direction. It may be a good time to use Mayastar Mantra-Waves Meditations (on YouTube), or to explore your motivation through journalling & contemplation. Create an image in your mind of the future you wish to experience & notice any doubts or self- criticism that come up when you think about it. Your triggers hold the key to your success 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 Strength. This is in no way a negative card but in this position we’re looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. Strength is about resilience & fortitude through authenticity, compassion & kindness. In shadow, this energy might be expressed as a tendency to try to achieve a feeling of strength by acting out, being argumentative or somehow forcing the issue. Aligning with limited ideas of Strength could block you from maintaining your integrity & being fully present in your life 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.

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 Happy Tarot for our medium today. These cards have everything you’d expect from a traditional Rider-Waite deck but with a whimsical twist. The characters express high vibes & happiness & draw you into a magickal world of marshmallow softened edges, vivid colour & light-hearted luminosity. 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 Swords. But I should also mention, the overall impression of the cards this week indicates significant spiritual shifts, important realisations & fast moving energy. There’s a lot going on & whatever plans you may have had could end up taking a back seat! The Knight of Swords suggests you may get caught up in a bit of a mission as you seek out essential information to make important decisions. But this could also represent some inner work, a major step forward in your healing journey or successful efforts to reprogramme your mind as you move beyond old ways of thinking. This fast & furious Knight-centred energy is further emphasised by the second card 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 Knight of Wands. Given the overall lay of the psychic landscape I feel this Knight emphasises the potency of the energetic influence represented by the first card. But if there is any opposition, it could be that you’re backing a hopeless cause & putting a lot of energy into something that’s not going to work out. However, even if you are in that position, you’re still progressing your path. We learn through love & loss. We learn by making mistakes. So however things pan out for you on your mission this week, recognise what you’ve learnt about yourself & witness how even your mistakes can be well-made! 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 5th September 2022…The Tower…Today may not go as expected, but whatever happens, focus on your foundation! Keep yourself grounded & avoid letting your imagination inspire your anxiety.

Affirm: “My spiritual seat is sacred, stable & enduring” Tuesday 6th September 2022…The Moon…Things aren’t always as they seem & the light of your intuition reveals hidden truths. Tune in.
