26th December 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 Tarot of Mystical Moments for our etheric explorations today. These cards have dreamlike imagery with lots of flowers, mermaids & surreal scenes. They reflect the traditional archetypes but with lots of imagination & a heaping of magick! 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 10 of Wands. This card reminds you not to spread yourself too thinly or take on more than you can cope with. With extra commitments at this time of year, it’s important to check in with yourself & make sure you give yourself enough time to rest & recover. If you’re feeling fraught & the festivities have fried your patience, this week, focus your attention on the present moment rather than worrying about what’s coming up next. And don’t underestimate the power of an early night! You’re doing amazingly well. 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, & in this position, this card is offering us a solution to the potential for burnout or overwhelm! Your routine can be quite upset by the festive season & it can be hard to make time for healing or attending to your important spiritual practices. The presence of the Hermit recommends us to set aside time each day to be alone without any distractions. This might take the form of adding an extra 10 minutes to your morning shower to work with an affirmation, or going to bed early in order to meditate & practice your breathing exercises. Balancing your activities will help you navigate a busy time. 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 December 2022…9 of Cups…Open your soul to the possibilities & make a wish! Things have a way of turning out better than you ever imagined when you dare to define your dreams. Keep your hopes high & your heart light. The Universe reminds you that opportunities open for those who embrace change. Affirm: “I am authentically aligned with abundance & expansion” Tuesday 27th December 2022…6 of Cups…Looking back at innocent times can inspire nostalgia & hasten healing, hope & high-spirits. Play can be a powerful & sacred ritual if you choose. Set aside your stress, just for today. The Universe reminds you that thoughts become things; so indulge yourself with some inspiring ones. Affirm: “Everything is good & great & brilliant & beautiful” Wednesday 28th December 2022…Queen of Pentacles…Comfort, calmness & contentment reign supreme! You are Queen of the Castle today & abundance flows from your fingertips to weave a sumptuous mantle of magnificence around you. The Universe reminds you that you can make the mundane magickal through deep appreciation & the expression of gratitude. Affirm: “My heart shines & aligns with heavenly light & love” Thursday 29th December 2022…King of Pentacles…Your ancestors offer you energetic encouragement & spiritual protection. Tap into new levels of confidence by remembering you’re never alone & you’re always loved. Every step of the way you’re guided by unseen hands. The Universe reminds you that you are the result of a thousand loves. Affirm: “I am free of fear & fortified by love” Friday 30th December 2022…The Hanged Man…Taking time to rest & reflect is essential to your health & happiness. Today, meditation or energy healing can bring you back into balance. The Universe reminds you that the way you look at things determines your experience. You can change your life, by changing your perspective. Affirm: “My heart is a reservoir of peace & plenty” Saturday 31st December 2022…10 of Cups…Fall in love with your life today by appreciating the bounteous benedictions that surround you. A sea of stars shines with eternal light over your soulscape brightening the burgeoning blessings. The Universe reminds you that bringing your focus to what you enjoy can be a perfect prayer. Affirm: “My soul prospers & my life aligns with its majesty” Sunday 1st January 2023…King of Swords…Your words carry weight so encourage expansive energy by decreeing your desires today! Mantras & affirmations align you with miraculous & magickal manifestations. The doors to your dream life are opening. The Universe reminds you that you are the co-creator of your life & your intentions determine your destiny. Affirm: “I hold my magick. I hold my power” 19th December 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 Tarot of the Little Prince for our etheric explorations today. This deck depicts scenes from the story of the Little Prince and uses them as a way to elucidate the traditional archetypes. It’s always an adventure & brings in lots of inspiring ideas! I’m sure it 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 8 of Pentacles. This card indicates great opportunities for the development of new skills & the integration or expansion of existing skills this week. Practice makes perfect so if you want to truly master something, you’ll need to dedicate time for it & be consistent in your work. The rewards will be worth it! You can surpass your expectations & give yourself reasons to celebrate by taking your talents to the next level. The Universe is backing you all the way & your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. 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 Wands. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. The 3 of Wands in shadow can indicate instability & a lack of foundation. In the context of the first card, this card recommends us to focus on existing skills & knowledge to consolidate it & use it before we consider how we might build upon it. Explore your current skill set to see where you’d like to expand it & your time will be well spent. The dividends of determination & devotion to your dreams will be divine! 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 December 2022…3 of Pentacles…Combined efforts reap the rewards today. Whether you’re learning from someone else, or sharing your wisdom with others to progress a project, collaboration is key to your success & satisfaction. The Universe reminds you that you hold the power to change your destiny in every moment with a soul-felt decision. Affirm: “Through uniqueness & magick I shine & align” Tuesday 20th December 2022…Ace of Cups…Dreams can come true for those that dare to dream. Make a wish today because potent promise, power & potential are pouring into your life! Be open to the possibility that the future is brighter than you anticipated. The Universe reminds you that the miraculous unfolding of magick in your life is infinite & incredible. Affirm: “Goodness grows & flows forever.” Wednesday 21st December 2022…3 of Cups…Today sparkles with opportunities for festivities, fun & frivolity. Sharing the love is what it’s all about so don’t hold back your happy dance! Acknowledge the bounteous blessings & endless enchantment expressed in your life by sharing your smiles with friends. The Universe reminds you that everything & everybody is a miraculous manifestation of love. Affirm: “Always & in all ways, I prosper” Thursday 22nd December 2022…The Lovers…Love is the power that underpins all of creation & today offers opportunities to experience the oneness of that Love. Friendship, family, fantasy & flings fill your heart with healing, hope & happiness. Love flourishes in all its forms. The Universe reminds you that your heart is the centre of your world. Affirm: “My heart beats in time with the heart of the Divine” Friday 23rd December 2022…The Magician…You have the skills & the savvy to make things happen today. Trust in your abilities. Your mind’s sharp & your talents are fine-tuned. Progressive paths are primed for your pursuit so be confident & decisive in your approach. The Universe reminds you that working smarter rather than harder is the opportunity of the wise. Affirm: “I am authentically aligned with abundance & expansion” Saturday 24th December 2022…Ace of Swords…Open your mind to inspirational input from the invisible realms by spending time in meditation & musing on the mysteries today. Let your mind wander & release yourself from restrictive mental habits like judgement & worry. The Universe reminds you that the words “Magick” and “Imagination” have the same root. Affirm: “My soul leads me to a luminous life of limitless love” Sunday 25th December 2022…King of Cups…Put your compassion into action by showing yourself some kindness today. Self-love restores your sacred spirit & your inner light is kindled to illuminate your life. The Universe reminds you that true healing is the willingness to treat yourself & others better than the past ever did. Affirm: “I open my heart to the wholeness of my soul” 12th December 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 Spirit Song Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck features pretty pastel-coloured images of animals throughout – and it’s whimsical style amplifies the magickal side of the majestic creatures depicted. It’s perfect for connecting with earthy & nature-based energy. 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 Hermit. The Hermit reminds us that our truth and authenticity can’t always be found when we’re around other people. If you have a tendency to derive your self-worth from other people’s opinions of you, you may also have a tendency to adapt your behaviour to please others while sacrificing your own needs and principles. This week, set aside some time to be alone in order to properly touch base with yourself and give yourself some care and consideration. You can create a sanctuary of spiritual healing by shifting your focus to solitude and spending some quality time with yourself 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 Swords. 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 Swords can be too impulsive and can easily end up pursuing the next idea before he’s finished working with the current one. His inability to ground himself enough to see things through can prevent him from progressing in any real sense, while keeping him very busy! If you see yourself in the Knight of Swords, this week, commit to taking things slowly & avoid multi-tasking. If you feel like you don’t have time to meditate, you need to meditate for twice as long! 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 December 2022…2 of Pentacles…Move seamlessly from one task to another by mindfully focusing on what’s in front of you today. Unwinding your mind creates space for better decision making & efficiency in other tasks so set aside moments for meditation. The Universe reminds you that freedom & happiness are found in the flexibility & ease with which we navigate change. Affirm: “All is working out & working well” Tuesday 13th December 2022…Page of Cups…Spiritual forces send support through sacred numbers, dreams, visions & heart-felt hunches. You have one foot in the world of the conscious & one playfully splashing in the waters of the mysterious unconscious. The Universe reminds you that your intuition doesn’t lie. Listen to your heart & trust your feelings. Affirm: “I am continuously connected to my divine source” Wednesday 14th December 2022…Page of Swords…Your words have the power to shape your life. Where you place your attention, you place your energy. Every day brings you closer to success & satisfaction when you choose the thoughts & words that align with your spiritual truth. The Universe reminds you that fear is the enemy of love. Affirm: “I align my life with my divine destiny” Thursday 15th December 2022…9 of Cups…Focus on self-acceptance & notice the demonstrations of abundance & prosperity that abound & surround you. Appreciate all that brings you comfort, cosiness & contentment. The Universe reminds you that it’s the little things that are the big things in the end. Trust in the Universe to sanctify your every step in life’s sacred dance. Affirm: “Step by step, I dance towards my dreams” Friday 16th December 2022…Queen of Pentacles…The richness & prosperity of the Universe find full expression in your life today. Look for the luxuries. Realise the healing power of your home & marvel at the miracles that surround you. Transform the mundane into the magickal through deep appreciation. The Universe reminds you that home is where the heart is. Affirm: “May brilliance, beauty & abundance abound” Saturday 17th December 2022…Ace of Swords…Your spirit guides you to your bliss through inspiring ideas & potent possibilities. The clouds clear & the sun shines through when you open yourself up to an optimistic outlook. The Universe reminds you that inspiration can ignite your imagination in a moment. Stay receptive by maintaining your inner calm. Affirm: “I open my heart to healing, hope & happiness” Sunday 18th December 2022…7 of Swords…A break with convention & the embracing of originality open the door to opulent opportunity today. Confound your own expectations by doing things you didn’t plan to do in ways you haven’t done them before. The Universe reminds you that to experience freedom from the limitations of convention you need to embrace your eccentricity. Affirm: “My authenticity paves the path of progress & peace” 5th December 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 Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid for our etheric explorations today. This deck features dream-like, ethereal imagery that expresses the traditional tarot meanings in new ways. The larger card-size also makes it a wonderful deck for magickal work or path-working. 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 Hierophant. The Hierophant dispenses the wisdom of the ages. He reflects the inner shaman & our ability to access sacred information by energetically connecting with the invisible realms. Focusing on your connection to the sacred aspects of the earth will help you to translate the ephemeral into something more useful; this week, spending time in nature & ensuring you stay grounded will align you with authenticity & accelerate your ascension. The Hierophant can also represent a teacher or counsellor– so be open to new insights & important realisations you might reach through connection with a knowledgeable friend! 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 Cups in this position indicates opportunities for significant spiritual growth, increases in health & happiness, & a whole lot to be grateful for! Appreciate all demonstrations of love & abundance in your life this week by setting aside some of your time & energy for celebration & pleasure. Marking positive experiences & events renews your spirit & helps you to maintain a balanced perspective. 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 December 2022…The Sun…Tune into your inner-child today by allowing the healing light of celestial solar energy to embrace you. Create time for fun & frivolity by making a game out of completing your chores & you’ll be looking on the bright-side by tonight! The Universe reminds you that you are made of the same stuff as the stars. Affirm: “I choose an attitude of gratitude” Tuesday 6th December 2022…5 of Pentacles…Consciously move your mind away from thoughts of lack, limitation & lamentation. Whatever you focus on becomes your reality. Mastering your mind means mastering your life. Today, define your direction by visualising positive outcomes & inspire yourself by imagining just how brilliantly things could go! The Universe reminds you that energy flows where your attention goes. Affirm: “I manifest miracles & magick” Wednesday 7th December 2022…7 of Pentacles…You’ve reached a place where a pause is the most productive thing you can do. Be patient today. You’ve sown the seeds of your success & now unseen forces are progressing your path in alignment with your highest hopes & most inspired intentions. The Universe reminds you that time translates your dreams into reality. Affirm: “My future is aligned with hope & happiness” Thursday 8th December 2022…5 of Cups…Opportunities to learn from the past rise to the surface today. Put a safe distance between who you were & who you’ve grown into by appreciating your progress. Remember, this isn’t the end of your journey! The Universe reminds you that change is essential for evolving the endlessly expanding essence of your divinity. Affirm: “I love & accept myself unconditionally” Friday 9th December 2022…9 of Cups…Make a wish because the Universe is feeling generous today! Be open to an optimistic outlook to create space for your dreams to come true. Half the magick is made when you make a soulful decision. The Universe reminds you that all good things come to those who believe all good things are possible. Affirm: “I am authentically aligned with abundance & expansion” Saturday 10th December 2022…Page of Cups…Tune into the whispers of your heart today because your higher-self is sharing important guidance & inspiration with you through symbols, numbers & dreams. You are supported by love & light. The Universe reminds you that you are a spiritual being having a human experience & your soul is always in communion with the divine. Affirm: “I am continuously connected to my sacred source” Sunday 11th December 2022…8 of Pentacles…Today, your good habits, rituals & routines pave the path to success. Be diligent & methodical in your approach & discover new ways of doing things that will save you time later. The Universe reminds you that if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well so apply yourself mindfully to each task. Affirm: “Abundance flows & blessings grow. Always & in all ways, I prosper” _________________________________ 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 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 Swords. 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 Swords can be too impulsive and can easily end up pursuing the next idea before he’s finished working with the current one. His inability to ground himself enough to see things through can prevent him from progressing in any real sense, while keeping him very busy! If you see yourself in the Knight of Swords, this week, commit to taking things slowly & avoid multi-tasking. If you feel like you don’t have time to meditate, you need to meditate for twice as long! 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.

Affirm: “My authenticity paves the path of progress & peace” 5th December 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 Good Tarot by Colette Baron- Reid for our etheric explorations today. This deck features dream-like, ethereal imagery that expresses the traditional tarot meanings in new ways. The larger card-size also makes it a wonderful deck for magickal work or path-working. 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 Hierophant. The Hierophant dispenses the wisdom of the ages. He reflects the inner shaman & our ability to access sacred information by energetically connecting with the invisible realms. Focusing on your connection to the sacred aspects of the earth will help you to translate the ephemeral into something more useful; this week, spending time in nature & ensuring you stay grounded will align you with authenticity & accelerate your ascension. The Hierophant can also represent a teacher or counsellor– so be open to new insights & important realisations you might reach through connection with a knowledgeable friend! 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 Cups in this position indicates opportunities for significant spiritual growth, increases in health & happiness, & a whole lot to be grateful for! Appreciate all demonstrations of love & abundance in your life this week by setting aside some of your time & energy for celebration & pleasure. Marking positive experiences & events renews your spirit & helps you to maintain a balanced perspective. 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.

Affirm: “I choose an attitude of gratitude” Tuesday 6th December 2022…5 of Pentacles…Consciously move your mind away from thoughts of lack, limitation & lamentation.
