November 2022 Musings... 28th November 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, and 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 Wild Unknown Tarot for our etheric explorations today. Nature-based decks always seem to resonate more deeply with me over the darker half of the year & this deck includes many trees and animal characters that express some of the wilder aspects of the traditional archetypes. I’m sure this deck will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. 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 Sun. The Sun brings simple joys, smooths the route to success & inspires your spirit to shine! This energy is most easily accessed when we let go of tendencies to judgement, cynicism or anxiety. It reflects our childlike exuberance & sense of wonder & invites us to explore the world with curiosity & high hopes. Whatever’s been stressing you, set it aside for this week & find out if focusing on the bright side brings you closer to your goals. Optimism is a choice – and this week, it’s the perfect way to tap into progressive & prosperous paths that will nourish your soul & put a smile on your face. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week the excellent news is that no significant oppositional energy is anticipated! Rather, the presence of the Ace of Wands in this position further emphasises the importance & transformational aspects of the first card. The Ace of Wands is about taking action, putting your money where your mouth is & pursuing your goals with passion & purpose. This card indicates that if you choose to tap into the enthusiasm of the Sun energy, you’ll discover new ways to grow & express your soul in your life for a more enriching & successful experience. 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 28th November 2022…Temperance…Establish a bit of equilibrium by scheduling yourself time for rest & relaxation. Spiritual practices like energy healing & meditation can help you to balance your body & mind while inspiring your spirit to shine through. The Universe reminds you that you are a human-being, not a human-doing; find yourself in moments of inactivity & silence. Affirm: “My soul is a source of tranquillity & triumph” Tuesday 29th November 2022…Knight of Swords…Consider your intentions & fix your focus before you start today. You have the momentum to make magick happen. Keep your eyes on the prize & trust that your highest hopes can materialize. Tune out distractions by visualising the life of your dreams. The Universe reminds you that energy flows where your attention goes. Affirm: “I manifest miracles, marvels & magick” Wednesday 30th November 2022…8 of Pentacles…Boost your confidence by honing your skills. Remind yourself of your abilities by reflecting on past achievements & take action today on developing those talents. Believe in your ability to exceed your own expectations & watch yourself blossom with brilliance. The Universe reminds you that you can leave your limitations behind by putting your energy into levelling-up. Affirm: “I choose progress. Today & every day” Thursday 1st December 2022…Wheel of Fortune…Today’s energetic shifts will refresh & reinvigorate you. Staying grounded allows you to adapt & advance in new ways. Open yourself to new possibilities by letting go of old judgements & resistance. The Universe reminds you that you can trust in continuous change: it is a process pregnant with possibilities! Affirm: “All is well & all will be well” Friday 2nd December 2022…Page of Swords…Your mind is primed for inspiration to strike. Make space for the sacred & sublime to manifest by spending some time in silence. If over-thinking has cluttered your mind, your meditations can bring you back into a state of cool, calm clarity. The Universe reminds you that your destiny is defined by your decisions. Affirm: “Moment by moment, I align with my magnificence” Saturday 3rd December 2022…9 of Pentacles…Healing happens when you move closer to your authenticity today. Light-centric forces support you & offer you energetic encouragement from the side-lines. Nurture yourself with nourishing food & self-compassion. Your body is the sacred shrine that houses your divine soul. The Universe reminds you that pain is inevitable but suffering is optional. Affirm: “I work towards wellness & wisdom” Sunday 4th December 2022…8 of Swords…Open your eyes to the world that exists beyond the bounds of your beliefs. Move beyond the tyranny of trepidation by mastering your mental state. Interrupt your anxiety by reminding yourself that you can consider your concerns without feeding them. The Universe reminds you that courage means feeling the fear and doing it anyway! Affirm: “I leave behind my limitations day, by day, by day” 21st November 2022…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, and 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 Crow Tarot for our medium today. This deck features the traditional symbolism with a twist: all of the characters featured are crows! It creates some interesting new interpretations of the tarot archetypes & perfectly suits the darker half of the year. I’m sure these cards will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. 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 4 of Swords. This card recommends us to set aside time for rest & relaxation this week. It’s the perfect energetic opportunity for integrating past experiences – especially recent causes of stress or upset. Create an energetic space for yourself to breathe & find your grounding this week by using your favourite energy healing techniques, meditations & spiritual practices. Focusing on your self-care brings healing to yourself & those around you. 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 Swords. This can be a challenging card but in this position, it’s a caution against dwelling on the downsides or focusing too much on the details of things that have already passed. While attending to self-care, sometimes negative thoughts or repetitive patterns of cynicism or catastrophizing can be recognised & resolved. The presence of the 3 of Swords in this position reminds us that facing our emotional reality doesn’t mean getting stuck in those feelings. If the emotions are too overwhelming or unbalanced, bring your attention back to the present. When you’re grounded in the present, you naturally move away from being grounding in the past. 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 21st November 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Relax & recognise the demonstrations of prosperity & beauty around you. You are Queen of the Castle today & abundance flows from your fingertips to weave a sumptuous mantle of magnificence around you. The Universe reminds you that taking pleasure in life is a sacred ritual. Renew your spirit with a little self- indulgence. Affirm: “Bountiful blessings reside & abide” Tuesday 22nd November 2022…6 of Pentacles…Abundance surrounds you & reflects past success. Appreciate your glow-up! You have enough glitz, glamour & greatness in your life to make you shine & light up the lives of those around you. The Universe reminds you that energy exchange makes the world go round. Seek to share your gifts with others today. Affirm: “My heart sings & my soul smiles” Wednesday 23rd November 2022…2 of Swords…If you’ve been holding back or sitting on the fence, it’s time to dissolve the deadlock & make a decision today! Devise your destiny & don’t be afraid to do things differently. The Universe reminds you that confidence in your divine self isn’t misplaced. You have reserves of untapped potential within. Affirm: “I align with progress & prosper prolifically” Thursday 24th November 2022…7 of Swords… A break with convention & the embracing of originality creates openings for enrichment, enchantment & enjoyment today! Don’t be afraid to rock the boat or buck the trend because your eccentricity is sacred. The Universe reminds you that nobody in the world is better qualified to be you than you are! Affirm: “I awaken to my sacred splendour. I shine. I shine. I shine” Friday 25th November 2022…Queen of Cups…Opportunities for healing are found when you centre yourself around calmness today. Carve out some space for peace & quiet. Indulge in a relaxing bath ritual & surround yourself in a sumptuous mantle of self-compassion. The Universe reminds you that you are beloved, beautiful & blessed in every moment. Don’t doubt your divinity Child of the Universe. Affirm: “My life is in flow & I flourish fruitfully” Saturday 26th November 2022…King of Pentacles…Tides of prosperity & progress turn to create golden opportunities for greatness in your life today! Pay attention to the promptings of your intuition that reveal the roads to a rich & resplendent life. 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 open to greater joy & joyful greatness” Sunday 27th November 2022…Knight of Swords…Your spirit is inspired & urges you towards your wildest ambitions! Channel some of that energy into imagining how well things could go by exploring your desires in dazzling daydreams. The Universe reminds you that he who dares, wins. Dare to dream. Dare to deviate. Dare to do it differently. You’re divinely defined! Affirm: “I progress my path with courage & confidence” 14th November 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 Moonchild Tarot for our medium today. This deck is both delicate & deep. The soft palette & ethereal scenes are magickal. I’m always drawn to these cards when I’m working closely with Pleiadian & Lemurian energy – and if you subscribe to the Mayastar newsletter you’ll notice the latest special offers have also reflected these starseeded energies! I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. 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 Magician. The Magician reminds you that you are in the driving seat of your life. What you say & how you act are the spells you cast to create the life you desire. Are your words & deeds aligned with your highest ideals? This week, you need to make sure they are because opportunities for manifesting miracles are in the offing! Capitalize on this potent & progressive energy current by standing, speaking & acting from a place of power. Other people & events may have some effect on you, but they can’t have more of an effect on you than you have on yourself! 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 10 of Swords. The 10 of Swords can reflect a point of despair – but it can also reflect a point of “being done” in a more positive sense. It’s the point of finally drawing a line under everything after a period of stress or upset. It’s about saying “that’s that” & then moving on without looking back. In this position, this card could indicate it’s time to get over yourself & move beyond restrictive thoughts you’ve invested way too much time & energy into. If that sounds like you, it’s time to stop feeding your fears & limitations so you can put your energy to better use! 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 14th November 2022…2 of Wands…Channelling your intentions into the things that inspire your passion will progress your path to success. Pave the way to a fantastic future by adopting good habits & learning something new today. The Universe reminds you that your ideas are worthy of your energy & your energy determines your destiny. Affirm: “I align with audacity & dance towards my dreams” Tuesday 15th November 2022…2 of Swords…Try not to be too rigid in your thinking today. Evaluating the options dispassionately brings clarity. Trust your intuition to guide you & don’t procrastinate for fear of making the wrong choice. Some of your greatest insights have come from mistakes! The Universe reminds you that you can trust yourself to learn, change & grow. Affirm: “I trust myself to exceed myself” Wednesday 16th November 2022…Ace of Swords…While spending time in meditation, the clouds clear & new ideas shine through! The Universe reminds you that the words “Magick” and “Imagination” have the same root. Garner greater magickal manifestations in your life by writing down your impressions to identify new ideas worth investigating. Affirm: “I hold my magick, I hold my power. I master this minute, this day, this hour” Thursday 17th November 2022…The High Priestess…Secret & sacred knowledge is held within, so seek spiritual support through your higher self during your meditations today. The Universe reminds you that your intuition & dreams communicate important messages, but its in silence that you’ll hear them most clearly. Keep your own counsel & follow your own path. Affirm: “Peace is my path. Love is my legacy.” Friday 18th November 2022…King of Swords…Your words carry weight & shape your reality. Be considerate of the way you speak to yourself & others. The Universe reminds you that you are the co-creator of your life & that your thoughts become things. Today, intend your words to build brilliance, beauty & blessings & watch the life of your dreams take shape. Affirm: “I align with my highest potential” Saturday 19th November 2022…The Chariot…Explore the edges & extremities of your free-spirit today. Take the reins & decide your destiny by picking the path that inspires your spirit to shine. The Universe reminds you that your freedom is expressed in every moment of choice. Take each step mindfully & focus on the road ahead. Affirm: “When I move, the Universe moves with me” Sunday 20th November 2022…Knight of Cups…Your heart sings with poetry & promise! Be inspired by the mystery & magick of life. The Universe reminds you that spiritual love connects you with everything & everybody, everywhere. Your spirit is in a state of continuous closeness & communion with the Light. Expand your ecstatic soul by putting your heart into your art today. Affirm: “Infinite love lights my way; miracles manifest day-by-day” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. 7th November 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 Rackham Tarot for our medium today. This deck is made up of pre-existing artwork by the artist, Arthur Rackham. This means the cards don’t conform to the traditional symbols or archetypal representations but because of that, it often inspires new layers of meaning & interpretation. I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. 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 Cups. The Knight of Cups is the archetypal lover that brings deeper meaning & joy to life. He interprets the world through a poetic lens & glories in the glittering greatness of life. His presence in this position reminds us to appreciate the little things & reassures us that our search for the silver lining will always meet success. Hold your highest ideals & pursue your passion. Staying true to yourself this week keeps your energy flowing in the direction of your dreams & brings the beauty & blessings that will nourish your soul. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week there is no opposition anticipated. Rather, the 6 of Cups further elucidates the bountiful brilliance of the first card. This card reminds us that connecting with the inner child can help us to approach the world with openness & hope. Setting aside time for creative pursuits & relaxation can help you to align with this energy. Make time to play & connect with friends & new opportunities for optimism & high-vibes will ensue! 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 7th November 2022…Strength… Find reserves of potency & power by extending unconditional love & acceptance to yourself today. Elevate your heart by tuning into your feelings & showing yourself compassion. The Universe reminds you that your instincts & intuition are spiritual gifts that can guide you to authenticity. In meditation, rise above self-judgement & self-doubt. You are supported by limitless love. Affirm: ”I find my strength through Love” Tuesday 8th November 2022…4 of Wands…Your commitment to your dreams pays off today! Take time to smell the roses & appreciate abundance. Look at your life & recognise the improvement, increase & inspiration that’s blossomed. The Universe reminds you that manifestation is continuous & you co-create your reality; so keep your hopes high & count your blessings often. Affirm: “My soul sings the song of success” Wednesday 9th November 2022…Page of Pentacles… You’re buzzing with ideas today – so keep a notebook handy! There could be a golden ticket or new direction within the flow of fantastical thoughts. There are paths to progress you haven’t imagined…yet! The Universe reminds you that visualising your goals can help you to pin down your deepest desires & highest ideals. Affirm: “I choose the path of prosperity & progress” Thursday 10th November 2022…5 of Cups…Create some distance between your past habits & limitations by appreciating the person you’ve evolved to be. Recognise anew the shifts & shake-ups you experienced from a position of self-acceptance & limitless self-compassion. The Universe reminds you that change can be hard, but it’s essential for evolving the endlessly expanding essence of your divinity. Affirm: “Love abounds & surrounds me” Friday 11th November 2022…4 of Cups…You’re about to find your groove again. You can progress the process by returning your focus to the present. Meditation makes magickal moments today! The Universe reminds you that energy flows where attention goes & distractions can deplete your determination.

Confound your own expectations by doing things you didn’t plan to do today. Thinking outside the box brings brilliance, beauty & bountiful blessings. The Universe reminds you that freedom from the limitation of anticipation is true freedom! Affirm: “I awaken to my sacred splendour. I shine. I shine. I shine.” _________________________________ 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!

The Magician reminds you that you are in the driving seat of your life. What you say & how you act are the spells you cast to create the life you desire. Are your words & deeds aligned with your highest ideals? This week, you need to make sure they are because opportunities for manifesting miracles are in the offing! Capitalize on this potent & progressive energy current by standing, speaking & acting from a place of power. Other people & events may have some effect on you, but they can’t have more of an effect on you than you have on yourself! 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 10 of Swords. The 10 of Swords can reflect a point of despair – but it can also reflect a point of “being done” in a more positive sense. It’s the point of finally drawing a line under everything after a period of stress or upset. It’s about saying “that’s that” & then moving on without looking back. In this position, this card could indicate it’s time to get over yourself & move beyond restrictive thoughts you’ve invested way too much time & energy into. If that sounds like you, it’s time to stop feeding your fears & limitations so you can put your energy to better use! 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 Rackham Tarot for our medium today. This deck is made up of pre- existing artwork by the artist, Arthur Rackham. This means the cards don’t conform to the traditional symbols or archetypal representations but because of that, it often inspires new layers of meaning & interpretation. I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us today. 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 Cups. The Knight of Cups is the archetypal lover that brings deeper meaning & joy to life. He interprets the world through a poetic lens & glories in the glittering greatness of life. His presence in this position reminds us to appreciate the little things & reassures us that our search for the silver lining will always meet success. Hold your highest ideals & pursue your passion. Staying true to yourself this week keeps your energy flowing in the direction of your dreams & brings the beauty & blessings that will nourish your soul. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week there is no opposition anticipated. Rather, the 6 of Cups further elucidates the bountiful brilliance of the first card. This card reminds us that connecting with the inner child can help us to approach the world with openness & hope. Setting aside time for creative pursuits & relaxation can help you to align with this energy. Make time to play & connect with friends & new opportunities for optimism & high-vibes will ensue!
