September 2023 Musings... 25th September 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 Buffy the Vampire Slayer Tarot for our reading today. This deck is new to my collection and already becoming a favourite with me! As a fan of the show, I know many of the characters and episodes depicted well and can draw from the stories as well as the traditional tarot archetypes with this deck – making it excellent for meditation and contemplation. The artwork is modern and reminiscent of some early 2000s anime styles – so I enjoy it aesthetically too! 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 The Emperor. The Emperor carries the balanced power of the four elemental Kings, and is therefore the master of his mind, his passion, his emotions and his physical reality. In this position his positive aspects are emphasised and he promises success and progress in all areas. If you’ve been holding back on trying something new, or you’ve been procrastinating, this week’s energy creates an opportunity for things to change. The Emperor is all about making informed choices and owning your power. Recognise the part you play in the unfolding of your life so that you can choose to make any changes necessary to steer you towards your highest ambitions. 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 Justice. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position, we’re dealing with the shadowed aspects of the archetype. The presence of Justice reminds us not to become hyperfixated on things; it reminds us that being too rigid in our routines & trying to micro-manage ourselves & our lives can block us from aligning with the expansive excellence of our eternal nature. Being open to opportunities for growth means keeping an open mind & an open heart 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 25th September 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” Tuesday 26th September 2023…Ace of Pentacles…Invest your energy wisely because the Law of Attraction is continuously at work! New opportunities grow from old ideas. Your life burgeons & brims with bountiful blessings. The Universe reminds you that spiritual success allows you to appreciate abundance in new ways. Affirm: “I thrive & prosper, thrive & prosper” Wednesday 27th September 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 28th September 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” Friday 29th September 2023…7 of Swords…A break with convention opens the door to opulent opportunity today.

My musings are intended to inspire, uplift and guide you on your healing journey. I’ve chosen the Pre-Raphaelite Tarot for our reading today. This is a Rider- Waite style deck with the traditional symbolism & characters reflected in the style of Pre-Raphaelite art & featuring some familiar faces for those familiar with the style! The vibrant colours & romantic scenes are captivating & reflect the archetypes perfectly. 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 10 of Cups. This card reminds us to lean into the emotionally supportive relationships we have this week. If you’re feeling apprehensive or stressed, talking it out with a friend or spending time with loved ones will bring you healing & happiness. Our connection with loved ones is energetic & sharing energy can increase the flow of life-force, bring healing & restore equilibrium. Spending time in nature can replenish your energy & help you to find grounding. 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 there is no opposition anticipated. Rather, the deep emotional & spiritual energetic tide is further emphasised by the Queen of Cups. The Queen of Cups has a powerful connection with the unconscious, and with our dreams and visions. Her presence reminds us to listen to the promptings of our intuition & follow our hearts in all we do. Pay attention to repetitive symbols or impressions received in dreams & meditations this week. Your soul has powerful guidance for you. Go with the flow! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead.

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.

Your talents are fine-tuned & progressive paths are primed. The Universe reminds you that you have grown in expertise & wisdom. Harness the magick of your experience by reflecting on your past accomplishments to inspire yourself today. Affirm: “I am authentically aligned with abundance & expansion” Thursday 21st September 2023…9 of Pentacles…Healing happens when you move closer to your authentic power. Light-centric forces offer you energetic encouragement from the side-lines. Nurture yourself with nourishing food & self-compassion.

Affirm: “Through uniqueness & magick I shine & align” 11th September 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 Black Cats Tarot for our medium. These card express the traditional archetypes but with the characters represented as cats. The scenes diverge from the traditional cards but echo the meanings beautifully, while encouraging exploration of new layers of meaning. It’s a very balanced deck and one that I reach for regularly! 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 King of Wands. In this position the King of Wands reveals great opportunities opening for those who are prepared to take action, step into their power & exercise their sovereignty. Whatever your hopes and goals are, this week’s high energies give you a push in the right direction! It’s going to be a case of striking while the iron is hot though. Procrastination is the enemy of progress so be ready to act! You can effectively utilise the potent celestial energies at play by considering your course & executing your plans with confidence, courage & charisma. The Universe is telling you that the ball is in your court this week! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 6 of Pentacles. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. The 6 of Pentacles is about having plenty in a practical sense & being able to share what you have with others. But this week, it indicates a potential problem in this area. If you’re around people make demands on your time & resources but never reciprocate, this might be something to look out for. It could also be indicative of a tendency to feel you need to buy the approval of others or derive your self-esteem from the opinions of those around you. Be vigilant against tendencies of over-giving 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 11th September 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” Tuesday 12th September 2023…9 of Cups…Make a wish because the Universe is feeling generous today! Demonstrations of abundance & prosperity 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. Affirm: “Step by step, I dance towards my dreams” Wednesday 13th September 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!” Thursday 14th September 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” Friday 15th September 2023…High Priestess…Your intuition has important guidance for your spiritual path. Bathing rituals can help you to slow down your thoughts & relax in order to deeply connect with your sacred soul. The Universe reminds you that you are a spiritual being having a human experience. Affirm: “I honour my intuition as the voice of my soul” Saturday 16th September 2023…7 of Cups…Open your mind to magick by entertaining eclectic & enchanting ideas. Visualise the future of your dreams to explore your heart’s true desires. The Universe reminds you to live from your imagination, not your history. All things are possible if you believe all things are possible. Affirm: “I am open to manifesting miracles & magnificence” Sunday 17th September 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” 4th September 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 Everyday Witch Tarot for our medium today. These are based on the traditional meanings but have witches & their familiars in every card. I love them for their unique representations of the traditional archetypes that make these cards so accessible & meaningful for modern witches! I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 7 of Cups. In this position, we’re looking at the positive aspects of the card. The 7 of Cups invites us to explore our possibilities & potential through imagination & fantasy. Indulging in daydreams can help us to discover what truly matters to us & gives us a space in which to explore what we really want out of life. Allow your intuition to guide you as you imagine yourself & your future in flights of fancy. Don’t be afraid to dream big! Make your imaginings as colourful & comprehensive as possible by acknowledging the emotions your vivid & vibrant visions inspire. Writing down some of your ideas may help you to uncover new opportunities for healing, happiness & hope. 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 Judgement card. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadowed aspect of the archetype. And when Judgement is in shadow, we may be failing to progress our path because we’re reinforcing ties to the past by replaying memories, but not creating balance by using our imagination to explore possibilities for the future. Making a conscious effort to look ahead and prepare to meet the beautiful and blessed opportunities of the future head on can inspire hope and create space for your sacred spirit to shine through. 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 4th September 2023…Hanged Man…Taking time to rest & reflect is essential to your health & happiness. Doing something unexpected can shift your energy. A change in perspective today, can change your life tomorrow. The Universe reminds you that the way you look at things determines your experience. Affirm: “My heart is a reservoir of peace & plenty” Tuesday 5th September 2023…King of Swords…You are the master of your destiny! Your words have power & your thoughts become things. Today, be conscious of your direction because your progress towards your goals is assured. The Universe reminds you that your magick manifests in the present moment. Affirm: “I am present in peace, power & purpose” Wednesday 6th September 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” Thursday 7th September 2023…4 of Wands…Today brings the good things into focus & inspires you to celebrate your success with wild abandon & a heart-felt happy dance! The Universe reminds you that gratitude paves the way for future triumph & removes the obstacles of cynicism & entitlement. Appreciate everything. Affirm: “I embrace excellence & align with abundance.” Friday 8th September 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” Saturday 9th September 2023…Temperance…Refine your spirit by setting aside some sacred space for contemplation, relaxation & healing. Disconnecting yourself from social demands & spending time with yourself is essential for your spiritual maintenance. Today, the Universe reminds you to stop doing things long enough to just be yourself. Affirm: “All is working out & working well” Sunday 10th September 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.

And this week, this comes in the form of the 6 of Pentacles. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. The 6 of Pentacles is about having plenty in a practical sense & being able to share what you have with others. But this week, it indicates a potential problem in this area. If you’re around people make demands on your time & resources but never reciprocate, this might be something to look out for. It could also be indicative of a tendency to feel you need to buy the approval of others or derive your self-esteem from the opinions of those around you. Be vigilant against tendencies of over-giving 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.

Affirm: “My soul prospers & my life aligns with its majesty” 4th September 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 Everyday Witch Tarot for our medium today. These are based on the traditional meanings but have witches & their familiars in every card. I love them for their unique representations of the traditional archetypes that make these cards so accessible & meaningful for modern witches! I’m sure they will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us. So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in the 7 of Cups. In this position, we’re looking at the positive aspects of the card. The 7 of Cups invites us to explore our possibilities & potential through imagination & fantasy. Indulging in daydreams can help us to discover what truly matters to us & gives us a space in which to explore what we really want out of life. Allow your intuition to guide you as you imagine yourself & your future in flights of fancy. Don’t be afraid to dream big! Make your imaginings as colourful & comprehensive as possible by acknowledging the emotions your vivid & vibrant visions inspire. Writing down some of your ideas may help you to uncover new opportunities for healing, happiness & hope. 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 Judgement card. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadowed aspect of the archetype. And when Judgement is in shadow, we may be failing to progress our path because we’re reinforcing ties to the past by replaying memories, but not creating balance by using our imagination to explore possibilities for the future. Making a conscious effort to look ahead and prepare to meet the beautiful and blessed opportunities of the future head on can inspire hope and create space for your sacred spirit to shine through. 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.
