Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

July 2023 Musings... 31st July 2023..Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 Happy Tarot for our etheric explorations 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 this week for the purpose of progressing the healing journey & supporting us in our spiritual growth is reflected in the Page of Cups. Tune into the whispers of your heart this week. The Universe is sharing important guidance & inspiration with you through symbols, sacred numbers & dreams. This week, you may be productive & practical while maintaining your connection with the sacred. You have one foot in the world of the conscious, and one playfully splashing in the waters of the unconscious mind. It’s important to stay grounded in order to bring through messages & put them into action. Be aware of your balance. If you feel anxious, emotional or find your mind racing, spend some time grounding yourself; if you feel uninspired or energetically blocked, spend some time exploring your imagination by daydreaming, writing poetry, or making something beautiful. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of Page of Pentacles. This isn’t a negative card but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspects of the archetype & considering how it might play against the dominant energetic forces elucidated by the first card in particular. This card is about planning & strategizing. It’s about anticipating problems & working around them. And planning can be vital. But it can also be a bit of a trap sometimes. You can end up “what if-ing” your way out of possibilities & talking yourself out of action. Too much Page of Pentacles energy can lead to procrastination. To avoid this hazard, this week try to end any planning work with some kind of action. If you’re writing a new to- do list, make sure you complete & check out two items from it immediately so you don’t break your flow. This week, actions speak louder than words! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 31st July 2023…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. The Universe reminds you that you are made of the same stuff as the stars. Affirm: “I choose an attitude of gratitude” Tuesday 1st August 2023…4 of Cups…You’re about to find your groove again but you can help the process by bringing your focus back to the present moment. Contemplation, meditation & quiet reflection inspire your soul with the sumptuousness of a sacred reality. The Universe reminds you that your soul exists within the eternal now. Affirm: “I flow & flourish, now” Wednesday 2nd August 2023…The Emperor…You have the power to make things happen! You’re in the driving seat of your life & today’s your day for getting things done. Stay in your lane so that distractions don’t dampen your determination. The Universe reminds you that discipline & doggedness demonstrate your dominance. Affirm: “Sovereignty is my strength. Success is my story” Thursday 3rd August 2023…Justice…Words can hurt, harm & hinder so be careful how you talk to yourself today. Be considerate of your feelings & be fair to yourself. Things aren’t as black & white as they seem & you’re doing brilliantly! The Universe reminds you that you’re an extraordinary person, just like everyone else! Affirm: “Limitless light suffuses my soul” Friday 4th August 2023… 3 of Pentacles…Combined efforts reap the rewards today. Whether you’re learning from someone else, or sharing your wisdom with others, collaboration is key to your success & satisfaction. The Universe reminds you that you hold the power to change your destiny in every moment. Affirm: “Through uniqueness & magick I shine & align” Saturday 5th August 2023…5 of Wands…Dodge the drama & cut off from the conflict today by staying in your lane & prioritising your inner peace. Your time is precious & not everyone that demands it is deserving of it! Be discerning. The Universe reminds you that conflict requires your participation. Affirm: “I am aligned with positive & progressive change” Sunday 6th August 2023…Queen of Wands…Your confidence shines today. Pursue your passions with style & a winning smile! Don’t be afraid to do things differently. The Universe reminds you that it falls in love with a stubborn heart. Be uncompromising & keep progressing your path with positivity. Affirm: “Everything I touch turns to gold” 24th July 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 King of Pentacles. This card reminds us to tend to any necessary “home magick” this week. This could be an effort to cleanse the energy within your home if there’s been a lot of stress or upset recently, or it could be a chance to find your grounding & soothe your soul by looking after your immediate environment. Perhaps you need to de- clutter the “clutter drawer” or put the winter clothes back in the top of the wardrobe? Or simply carve out some time for a mindful tidy-up. When you’re looking after your home, you’re looking after yourself & nurturing your spirit by providing yourself with a place to breathe, belong & be 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 Knight 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 Knight 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 24th July 2023…The Lovers…Love magnifies the magick in all areas of your life. Lean into your loving connection to the world 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” Tuesday 25th July 2023…Ace of Wands…Whatever you do today, do it with power & passion! Jump in with both feet & be ok with making waves. 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 with action” Wednesday 26th July 2023…2 of Wands…Invest your ideas with energy by taking action! Pave the way to a fantastic future by adopting good habits & learning something new today. The Universe reminds you that channelling your intentions into the things that inspire your passion will progress your path to success. Affirm: “I align with audacity & dance towards my dreams” Thursday 27th July 2023…8 of Wands…You’re about to reach a tipping point & experience the exhilaration of everything coming together at once. 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” Friday 28th July 2023…4 of Cups…You’re about to find your groove again but you can help the process by bringing your focus back to the present moment. Contemplation, meditation & quiet reflection inspire your soul with the splendour of a sacred reality. The Universe reminds you that your soul exists within the eternal now. Affirm: “I flow & flourish, now” Saturday 29th July 2023…The Fool…Pursue authenticity by bucking the trend & doing things in your own way. Embracing sacred rebellion can be a soulful act that brings you closer to your highest spiritual self. The Universe reminds you that true freedom comes when your actions aren’t tempered by fear & judgement. Affirm: “I trust in the Universe” Sunday 30th July 2023…3 of Pentacles…Combined efforts reap the rewards today. Whether you’re learning from someone else, or sharing your wisdom with others, collaboration is key to your success & satisfaction. The Universe reminds you that you hold the power to change your destiny in every moment. Affirm: “Through uniqueness & magick I shine & align” 17th July 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 Star Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck is a favourite of mine & the bright colours, night skies & magickal symbolism make this the perfect deck for exploring the mysterious & mystical! And the representation of deities and sacred beings from different mythologies adds new dimensions to the archetypes. 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 Strength card. Strength is about owning your power & deriving confidence in yourself. It’s about recognising what you gained through the challenges you faced in the past rather than fixating on what you lost. But Strength here isn’t about force or aggression at all; it’s about the inner strength you discover when you realise you can trust & rely on yourself. The beginning of finding this inner power is making the conscious decision to love yourself & extend kindness & compassion to yourself rather than criticising & judging yourself or comparing yourself to others. This week, look for opportunities to create some healing space for yourself with self-care rituals & spiritual practices like energy healing, meditation & yoga. 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 17th July 2023…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. The Universe reminds you that other peoples’ judgements reflect their truth, not yours. Affirm: “Sovereignty is my strength” Tuesday 18th July 2023…8 of Cups…Exciting & expansive opportunities exist beyond your beliefs. Forgive the past. Forgive yourself. The sun is rising on a new chapter & revealing new opportunities for growth. The Universe reminds you that life is like riding a bicycle: to keep your balance, you must keep moving. Affirm: “Balance brings blessings & brilliance to bear” Wednesday 19th July 2023…5 of Cups…Create some distance between your past limitations & the present by appreciating the person you’ve evolved to be. Recognise the shifts & shake-ups that moved you towards self- acceptance & love. The Universe reminds you that change is essential for evolving the endlessly expanding essence of your divinity. Affirm: “Love abounds & surrounds me” Thursday 20th July 2023…Knight of Cups…Songs of the source of the boundless & beautiful love that comprises your sacred soul play out in your connections today. The Universe reminds you that the giving & receiving of love is the sacred ritual by which we know ourselves. Share the love today. Affirm: “I am beloved & blessed in every moment” Friday 21st July 2023…2 of Wands…Invest your ideas with energy by taking action! Pave the way to a fantastic future by adopting good habits & learning something new today. The Universe reminds you that channelling your intentions into the things that inspire your passion will progress your path to success. Affirm: “I align with audacity & dance towards my dreams” Saturday 22nd July 2023…Ace of Wands…Whatever you do today, do it with power & passion! Jump in with both feet & be ok with making waves. 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 with action” Sunday 23rd July 2023…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! Define your destiny by doing 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” 10th July 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 Guardian of the Night Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck has a very earthy feel with animals depicted throughout. Although it’s not traditional in the depictions of the archetypes, the magickal manifestations of nature perfectly express the meanings of the cards for those familiar with the Rider-Waite system. I also like the fact that this deck doesn’t shy from some darker themes – because although with these readings, I’m very much focused on the positive aspects of the cards, darker decks can sometimes help us to explore the shadowed aspects of the archetypes and the experiences they represent. Sometimes cards the cards offer us guidance as to how we might best navigate difficult times so 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 the 7 of Swords. This is the card of the sacred rebel! It’s time to confound expectations & do things in your own unique way. In this position, the positive aspects of the card are emphasised & it’s all about breaking routine, changing your mind & taking detours. Making rules & establishing routines is a powerful way to achieve your goals. But this week, you’ll feel your power most intensely when you make an executive decision & switch things up. Maybe you take a day off & inspiration finds you; or you cancel something non-essential in order to attend to some meaningful, needed & well-deserved self-care. Whatever you do this week, strive to surprise yourself & seek spiritual treasure on the untrodden path. 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 4 of Pentacles. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspects. The 4 of Pentacles cautions us to be careful not to be too rigid or resistant in our approach. Choosing to disconnect in order to tend to your spiritual needs is a soul-affirming opportunity. But looking at it as a need to protect yourself from the outside world could mean your focus is on conflict or the behaviour of those around you. Attending to your self-care this week can be a way to honour yourself, meet your needs & return refreshed, but it’s important to recognise that it’s your choice rather than to feel your motivations are a reaction to the choices of those 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 10th July 2023…King of Pentacles…Tides of prosperity & progress turn to create golden opportunities for greatness in your life today! 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” Tuesday 11th July 2023…Knight of Wands…Expand into your excellence today. Muster courage & confidence by embracing your eccentricity & accommodating your quirks. The Universe reminds you that you are exactly the way you are supposed to be; so don’t compare yourself with others or accept other peoples’ limitations as your own. Affirm: “I honour my sovereign & sacred soul” Wednesday 12th July 2023…King of Wands…You have the power to transmute your passion into prosperity & progress. Express your sacred soul by taking centre stage in your life today. You inspire those around you. The Universe reminds you that your potential far exceeds the limited ideas you have about yourself. Affirm: “Limitless love flows within me & around me” Thursday 13th July 2023…Judgement…It’s time to let go of whatever’s been holding you back & allow your life to be transformed. The Universe reminds you that letting go of bad habits can create space for new habits that evolve, expand & enhance you. By focusing on growth, you’re empowered. Affirm: “I Awaken! I Align! I Ascend!” Friday 14th July 2023…Queen of Cups…Carve out some space for peace & quiet today. Indulge in a relaxing bath ritual & surround yourself in a sumptuous self-love mantle. 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 15th July 2023… 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 to stay receptive by maintaining your inner calm. Affirm: “I open my heart to healing, hope & happiness” Sunday 16th July 2023…Ace of Cups…Open your heart & soul to the possibility of progress by imagining how well things could go. Wishes may very well come true today, for those that dare to make a wish! The Universe reminds you that divine forces are always conspiring in your favour. Affirm: “My soul is open to boundless blessings” 3rd July 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 Chrysalis Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck is very untraditional in its expression of the archetypes and court cards – bringing in new angles and new meanings to the cards if you connect with them! I enjoy this deck immensely. The artwork is colourful, mystical and reminds me of fairytale books I had as a child. It draws from different mythologies and always inspires me. It’s a fantastic tarot deck for anyone that uses tarot as a meditation aid. 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 7 of Cups. In this position, the positive aspects of this card are emphasised & it reveals that progressive possibilities are flowing into our lives. We can explore these new opportunities & derive inspiration & motivation from them through daydreaming & exploring our imagination. Visualising your goals can help you to align your intentions with your hope & the 7 of Cups guides us to imagine what we truly desire as a way to determine our objectives for the next cycle of our lives. If you find exploring your imagination difficult, perhaps start out with a notebook handy so you can write down your impressions & then refer to the notebook the next time you sit down to tune in. Your imagination holds the key to spiritual inspiration this week. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 5 of Cups. This is not an inherently negative card but in this position we are looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. The presence of this energy indicates the most powerful impediments we might face this week are likely to come from within. It’s our own self-doubt & unhealed parts of ourselves that could throw a spanner in the works! It’s important to address those negative feelings & the thoughts they can inspire, but at the same time, maintaining some context & balance will avoid you feeling overwhelmed or becoming too fixated on the details of 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 3rd July 2023… 8 of Pentacles…Channel your energy into developing skills to find your grounding today. Artistic projects offer opportunities for spiritual expression. Your inner light can be shared with the world through your creativity. The Universe reminds you that every act of will is an act of magick. Affirm: “My heart is open to the magickal & miraculous” Tuesday 4th July 2023…3 of Swords…It’s time to touch base with yourself. 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” Wednesday 5th July 2023…2 of Cups…Today’s energetic tides support your healing journey & wash away doubts & dark thoughts. The Universe you reminds that you’re in a deeply loving relationship with the divine. Your soul exists in a state of continuous closeness & communion with your sacred source. Affirm: “I manifest miracles of peace & plenty” Thursday 6th July 2023…Knight of Swords…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 & start moving in that direction. The Universe reminds you that energy flows where your attention goes. Affirm: “I manifest miracles, marvels & magick” Friday 7th July 2023…The Tower…Today may not go as expected, it may go way better than you hoped! Allow abundance by keeping yourself grounded. Avoid letting your imagination inspire your anxiety. The Universe reminds you that being open to new possibilities is vital for growth. Affirm: “My spiritual seat is sacred, stable & enduring” Saturday 8th July 2023…King of Cups…Align with your inner peace & calm through energy work or meditation. Find release from disquiet & discord with a healing bath ritual. The Universe reminds you that your soul is renewed when the sacred areas of your life are acknowledged, accepted & explored. Affirm: “All is good & great & brilliant & beautiful” Sunday 9th July 2023…3 of Cups…Be open to the opportunities & the Universe will give you something to smile about! Acknowledge the bounteous blessings & endless enchantment expressed in every majestic moment. The Universe reminds you that everything & everybody is a miraculous manifestation of love. Affirm: “Always & in all ways, I prosper” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead and brings us to the Mayastar news! This reading was drawn for the week commencing the 3rd July 2023, but these words are meant for you whenever you found them and I hope they brought you inspiration on your path!

July 2023 Musings... 31st July 2023.. Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 Happy Tarot for our etheric explorations 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 this week for the purpose of progressing the healing journey & supporting us in our spiritual growth is reflected in the Page of Cups. Tune into the whispers of your heart this week. The Universe is sharing important guidance & inspiration with you through symbols, sacred numbers & dreams. This week, you may be productive & practical while maintaining your connection with the sacred. You have one foot in the world of the conscious, and one playfully splashing in the waters of the unconscious mind. It’s important to stay grounded in order to bring through messages & put them into action. Be aware of your balance. If you feel anxious, emotional or find your mind racing, spend some time grounding yourself; if you feel uninspired or energetically blocked, spend some time exploring your imagination by daydreaming, writing poetry, or making something beautiful. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of Page of Pentacles. This isn’t a negative card but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspects of the archetype & considering how it might play against the dominant energetic forces elucidated by the first card in particular. This card is about planning & strategizing. It’s about anticipating problems & working around them. And planning can be vital. But it can also be a bit of a trap sometimes. You can end up “what if-ing” your way out of possibilities & talking yourself out of action. Too much Page of Pentacles energy can lead to procrastination. To avoid this hazard, this week try to end any planning work with some kind of action. If you’re writing a new to-do list, make sure you complete & check out two items from it immediately so you don’t break your flow. This week, actions speak louder than words! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 31st July 2023…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. The Universe reminds you that you are made of the same stuff as the stars. Affirm: “I choose an attitude of gratitude” Tuesday 1st August 2023…4 of Cups…You’re about to find your groove again but you can help the process by bringing your focus back to the present moment. Contemplation, meditation & quiet reflection inspire your soul with the sumptuousness of a sacred reality. The Universe reminds you that your soul exists within the eternal now. Affirm: “I flow & flourish, now” Wednesday 2nd August 2023…The Emperor…You have the power to make things happen! You’re in the driving seat of your life & today’s your day for getting things done. Stay in your lane so that distractions don’t dampen your determination. The Universe reminds you that discipline & doggedness demonstrate your dominance. Affirm: “Sovereignty is my strength. Success is my story” Thursday 3rd August 2023…Justice…Words can hurt, harm & hinder so be careful how you talk to yourself today. Be considerate of your feelings & be fair to yourself. Things aren’t as black & white as they seem & you’re doing brilliantly! The Universe reminds you that you’re an extraordinary person, just like everyone else! Affirm: “Limitless light suffuses my soul” Friday 4th August 2023… 3 of Pentacles…Combined efforts reap the rewards today. Whether you’re learning from someone else, or sharing your wisdom with others, collaboration is key to your success & satisfaction. The Universe reminds you that you hold the power to change your destiny in every moment. Affirm: “Through uniqueness & magick I shine & align” Saturday 5th August 2023…5 of Wands…Dodge the drama & cut off from the conflict today by staying in your lane & prioritising your inner peace. Your time is precious & not everyone that demands it is deserving of it! Be discerning. The Universe reminds you that conflict requires your participation. Affirm: “I am aligned with positive & progressive change” Sunday 6th August 2023…Queen of Wands…Your confidence shines today. Pursue your passions with style & a winning smile! Don’t be afraid to do things differently. The Universe reminds you that it falls in love with a stubborn heart. Be uncompromising & keep progressing your path with positivity. Affirm: “Everything I touch turns to gold” 24th July 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 King of Pentacles. This card reminds us to tend to any necessary “home magick” this week. This could be an effort to cleanse the energy within your home if there’s been a lot of stress or upset recently, or it could be a chance to find your grounding & soothe your soul by looking after your immediate environment. Perhaps you need to de-clutter the “clutter drawer” or put the winter clothes back in the top of the wardrobe? Or simply carve out some time for a mindful tidy-up. When you’re looking after your home, you’re looking after yourself & nurturing your spirit by providing yourself with a place to breathe, belong & be 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 Knight 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 Knight 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 24th July 2023…The Lovers…Love magnifies the magick in all areas of your life. Lean into your loving connection to the world 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” Tuesday 25th July 2023…Ace of Wands…Whatever you do today, do it with power & passion! Jump in with both feet & be ok with making waves. 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 with action” Wednesday 26th July 2023…2 of Wands…Invest your ideas with energy by taking action! Pave the way to a fantastic future by adopting good habits & learning something new today. The Universe reminds you that channelling your intentions into the things that inspire your passion will progress your path to success. Affirm: “I align with audacity & dance towards my dreams” Thursday 27th July 2023…8 of Wands…You’re about to reach a tipping point & experience the exhilaration of everything coming together at once. 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” Friday 28th July 2023…4 of Cups…You’re about to find your groove again but you can help the process by bringing your focus back to the present moment. Contemplation, meditation & quiet reflection inspire your soul with the splendour of a sacred reality. The Universe reminds you that your soul exists within the eternal now. Affirm: “I flow & flourish, now” Saturday 29th July 2023…The Fool…Pursue authenticity by bucking the trend & doing things in your own way. Embracing sacred rebellion can be a soulful act that brings you closer to your highest spiritual self. The Universe reminds you that true freedom comes when your actions aren’t tempered by fear & judgement. Affirm: “I trust in the Universe” Sunday 30th July 2023…3 of Pentacles…Combined efforts reap the rewards today. Whether you’re learning from someone else, or sharing your wisdom with others, collaboration is key to your success & satisfaction. The Universe reminds you that you hold the power to change your destiny in every moment. Affirm: “Through uniqueness & magick I shine & align” 17th July 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 Star Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck is a favourite of mine & the bright colours, night skies & magickal symbolism make this the perfect deck for exploring the mysterious & mystical! And the representation of deities and sacred beings from different mythologies adds new dimensions to the archetypes. 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 Strength card. Strength is about owning your power & deriving confidence in yourself. It’s about recognising what you gained through the challenges you faced in the past rather than fixating on what you lost. But Strength here isn’t about force or aggression at all; it’s about the inner strength you discover when you realise you can trust & rely on yourself. The beginning of finding this inner power is making the conscious decision to love yourself & extend kindness & compassion to yourself rather than criticising & judging yourself or comparing yourself to others. This week, look for opportunities to create some healing space for yourself with self-care rituals & spiritual practices like energy healing, meditation & yoga. 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 17th July 2023…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. The Universe reminds you that other peoples’ judgements reflect their truth, not yours. Affirm: “Sovereignty is my strength” Tuesday 18th July 2023…8 of Cups…Exciting & expansive opportunities exist beyond your beliefs. Forgive the past. Forgive yourself. The sun is rising on a new chapter & revealing new opportunities for growth. The Universe reminds you that life is like riding a bicycle: to keep your balance, you must keep moving. Affirm: “Balance brings blessings & brilliance to bear” Wednesday 19th July 2023…5 of Cups…Create some distance between your past limitations & the present by appreciating the person you’ve evolved to be. Recognise the shifts & shake-ups that moved you towards self-acceptance & love. The Universe reminds you that change is essential for evolving the endlessly expanding essence of your divinity. Affirm: “Love abounds & surrounds me” Thursday 20th July 2023…Knight of Cups…Songs of the source of the boundless & beautiful love that comprises your sacred soul play out in your connections today. The Universe reminds you that the giving & receiving of love is the sacred ritual by which we know ourselves. Share the love today. Affirm: “I am beloved & blessed in every moment” Friday 21st July 2023…2 of Wands…Invest your ideas with energy by taking action! Pave the way to a fantastic future by adopting good habits & learning something new today. The Universe reminds you that channelling your intentions into the things that inspire your passion will progress your path to success. Affirm: “I align with audacity & dance towards my dreams” Saturday 22nd July 2023…Ace of Wands…Whatever you do today, do it with power & passion! Jump in with both feet & be ok with making waves. 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 with action” Sunday 23rd July 2023…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! Define your destiny by doing 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” 10th July 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 Guardian of the Night Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck has a very earthy feel with animals depicted throughout. Although it’s not traditional in the depictions of the archetypes, the magickal manifestations of nature perfectly express the meanings of the cards for those familiar with the Rider-Waite system. I also like the fact that this deck doesn’t shy from some darker themes – because although with these readings, I’m very much focused on the positive aspects of the cards, darker decks can sometimes help us to explore the shadowed aspects of the archetypes and the experiences they represent. Sometimes cards the cards offer us guidance as to how we might best navigate difficult times so 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 the 7 of Swords. This is the card of the sacred rebel! It’s time to confound expectations & do things in your own unique way. In this position, the positive aspects of the card are emphasised & it’s all about breaking routine, changing your mind & taking detours. Making rules & establishing routines is a powerful way to achieve your goals. But this week, you’ll feel your power most intensely when you make an executive decision & switch things up. Maybe you take a day off & inspiration finds you; or you cancel something non-essential in order to attend to some meaningful, needed & well-deserved self-care. Whatever you do this week, strive to surprise yourself & seek spiritual treasure on the untrodden path. 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 4 of Pentacles. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow aspects. The 4 of Pentacles cautions us to be careful not to be too rigid or resistant in our approach. Choosing to disconnect in order to tend to your spiritual needs is a soul-affirming opportunity. But looking at it as a need to protect yourself from the outside world could mean your focus is on conflict or the behaviour of those around you. Attending to your self-care this week can be a way to honour yourself, meet your needs & return refreshed, but it’s important to recognise that it’s your choice rather than to feel your motivations are a reaction to the choices of those 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 10th July 2023…King of Pentacles…Tides of prosperity & progress turn to create golden opportunities for greatness in your life today! 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” Tuesday 11th July 2023…Knight of Wands…Expand into your excellence today. Muster courage & confidence by embracing your eccentricity & accommodating your quirks. The Universe reminds you that you are exactly the way you are supposed to be; so don’t compare yourself with others or accept other peoples’ limitations as your own. Affirm: “I honour my sovereign & sacred soul” Wednesday 12th July 2023…King of Wands…You have the power to transmute your passion into prosperity & progress. Express your sacred soul by taking centre stage in your life today. You inspire those around you. The Universe reminds you that your potential far exceeds the limited ideas you have about yourself. Affirm: “Limitless love flows within me & around me” Thursday 13th July 2023…Judgement…It’s time to let go of whatever’s been holding you back & allow your life to be transformed. The Universe reminds you that letting go of bad habits can create space for new habits that evolve, expand & enhance you. By focusing on growth, you’re empowered. Affirm: “I Awaken! I Align! I Ascend!” Friday 14th July 2023…Queen of Cups…Carve out some space for peace & quiet today. Indulge in a relaxing bath ritual & surround yourself in a sumptuous self-love mantle. 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 15th July 2023… 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 to stay receptive by maintaining your inner calm. Affirm: “I open my heart to healing, hope & happiness” Sunday 16th July 2023…Ace of Cups…Open your heart & soul to the possibility of progress by imagining how well things could go. Wishes may very well come true today, for those that dare to make a wish! The Universe reminds you that divine forces are always conspiring in your favour. Affirm: “My soul is open to boundless blessings” 3rd July 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, I teach energy healing courses online through Mayastar Academy; create music as a Lemurian priestess, and provide healing, ritual & spell casting services as starseeded shaman & professional witch. 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 Chrysalis Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck is very untraditional in its expression of the archetypes and court cards – bringing in new angles and new meanings to the cards if you connect with them! I enjoy this deck immensely. The artwork is colourful, mystical and reminds me of fairytale books I had as a child. It draws from different mythologies and always inspires me. It’s a fantastic tarot deck for anyone that uses tarot as a meditation aid. 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 7 of Cups. In this position, the positive aspects of this card are emphasised & it reveals that progressive possibilities are flowing into our lives. We can explore these new opportunities & derive inspiration & motivation from them through daydreaming & exploring our imagination. Visualising your goals can help you to align your intentions with your hope & the 7 of Cups guides us to imagine what we truly desire as a way to determine our objectives for the next cycle of our lives. If you find exploring your imagination difficult, perhaps start out with a notebook handy so you can write down your impressions & then refer to the notebook the next time you sit down to tune in. Your imagination holds the key to spiritual inspiration this week. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 5 of Cups. This is not an inherently negative card but in this position we are looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. The presence of this energy indicates the most powerful impediments we might face this week are likely to come from within. It’s our own self-doubt & unhealed parts of ourselves that could throw a spanner in the works! It’s important to address those negative feelings & the thoughts they can inspire, but at the same time, maintaining some context & balance will avoid you feeling overwhelmed or becoming too fixated on the details of 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 3rd July 2023… 8 of Pentacles…Channel your energy into developing skills to find your grounding today. Artistic projects offer opportunities for spiritual expression. Your inner light can be shared with the world through your creativity. The Universe reminds you that every act of will is an act of magick. Affirm: “My heart is open to the magickal & miraculous” Tuesday 4th July 2023…3 of Swords…It’s time to touch base with yourself. 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” Wednesday 5th July 2023…2 of Cups…Today’s energetic tides support your healing journey & wash away doubts & dark thoughts.

Affirm: “I manifest miracles of peace & plenty” Thursday 6th July 2023…Knight of Swords…You have the momentum to make magick happen!
