November 2023 Musings... 27th November 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 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 looks at 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 Wands. This is not a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadowed aspect of the archetype. And the 5 of Wands can be about conflict with other people as well as internal conflict. Often the conflict stems from trying to rush or trying to do too many things at one time though – so this week, that’s something to look out for. Be patient and methodical. Slow yourself down enough to focus on the task at hand to avoid mistakes and frustration later in the 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 27th November 2023…6 of Wands…Your progress has been noted by the Universe & today you’re invited to celebrate your accomplishments! Appreciate recent growth & indulge your ego enough to enjoy taking a bow. The Universe reminds you that drawing satisfaction from your success can be a sacred ritual. Affirm: “I inspire myself to greatness through gratitude” Tuesday 28th November 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” Wednesday 29th November 2023…4 of Swords…Set aside time for rest, relaxation & recuperation. Balance is found by creating the energetic space for yourself to breathe. The Universe reminds you that making time to do nothing can help you to unwind enough to recognise what’s truly important. Affirm: “My heart is a sanctuary of limitless love & light” Thursday 30th November 2023…The Moon…Your intuition is your soul reaching out into the invisible realms & providing you with the inspiration & guidance to progress your spiritual journey. Today, honour your soul by listening carefully to its promptings. The Universe reminds you that you carry your treasure within. Affirm: “I embody the limitless light of soulful love” Friday 1st December 2023…The World…Take a moment to appreciate your progress today. Trials & tribulations of the past have found resolution. You have ascended to new heights & today you deserve a pat on the back! The Universe reminds you that you are divinely guided towards the highest expression of your unique soul. Affirm: “I exceed myself & manifest miracles” Saturday 2nd December 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” Sunday 3rd December 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” 20th November 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 Dreaming Way Tarot for our mystical meanderings today. This deck includes traditional Rider-Waite symbolism but with a modern take – and a lot of the characters depicted remind me of people I know which makes it a great deck for my personal readings too. I’m sure it will be a powerful translator of the numinous for us! So, sit back, relax your shoulders, take a sip of chamomile tea, exhale deeply, and let’s explore… The dominant energetic influence we can tap into over the coming week for the purpose of progressing the spiritual journey & pursuing the path to wholeness is reflected in The Fool. The Fool reminds us that sometimes it’s our baggage that weighs us down. He reminds us that being open to the possibilities means releasing ourselves from assumptions, judgements and attachments we’ve cultivated in the past so that we can move beyond those patterns. This week, being curious rather than cautious can enhance your experience and help you to tune into the perfect path for your spiritual evolution. 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 Death card. This doesn’t mean we might all die this week! In fact, Death in the tarot is rarely negative: it speaks of change & transformation. But today, in its shadowed position, it’s telling us that the thing that might block us from progressing our healing path this week would be a tendency to resist change and growth. If you find yourself dwelling on the past and feeling apprehensive about the future, this week may be the perfect opportunity for setting aside some of the baggage so you can move forward with greater freedom, hope and openness to the magick the Universe intends for 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 20th November 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” Tuesday 21st November 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” Wednesday 22nd November 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” Thursday 23rd November 2023…The Empress…Fertile energies flow & abundance abounds! Keep your focus on your highest ideals. Don’t waste your efforts by investing your energy in things that don’t serve you. The Universe reminds you that when you align with your purpose, you are supported by heavenly forces. Affirm: “Divine love encourages my soul. I embrace my spiritual destiny” Friday 24th November 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” Saturday 25th November 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!” Sunday 26th November 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” 13th November 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 Fool. In many respects, The Fool is the wisest of all! He pursues his destiny without expectation. He isn’t held back by the past & he isn’t restricted by his beliefs. He’s open to the possibilities & approaches life with curiosity & a light heart. The presence of The Fool in this position recommends us to align with that same philosophy. Try to let go of worries & expectations this week in order to be in the perfect position to explore new opportunities. And don’t feel guilty about enjoying yourself – sometimes it’s the most productive route. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 3 of Swords. The position of this card emphasises the shadowed aspects of the archetype & indicates the obstacles that could block us from receiving the benefits & blessings of the first card. This card is often about heartache, heartbreak & hard times emotionally. But as a swords card, it’s tied to our thoughts & the way we communicate with others & ourselves. In this position, it may represent negative or limiting ideas we have about ourselves & our potential that are tied to the past experiences of trauma or heartbreak we haven't worked through. Perhaps a bad break up or a toxic friendship in the past led you to harden your heart a bit and it’s blocking you from going with the flow and expanding your options in the present? This week might be the time you resolve matters and move forward in peace and new hope. 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 13th November 2023…7 of Wands…Past challenges have imbued you with the determination & defiance you need to succeed today. Stand in your power with confidence & courage. Obstacles are easily overcome. The Universe reminds you that a setback is an opportunity for a comeback. Affirm: “My fearless spirit is reflected in the peace & passion of my heart” Tuesday 14th November 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” Wednesday 15th November 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” Thursday 16th November 2023…10 of Pentacles…Open yourself to opulence & pursue the paths of prosperity & pleasure. Focus on all you have to be grateful for to maintain the momentum of your manifesting magick! The Universe reminds you that you are loved & supported by divine forces. Affirm: “My life is a source of magick & magnificence” Friday 17th November 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” Saturday 18th November 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 19th November 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” 6th November 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 the Little Prince for our mystical musings. This deck deviates from the traditional symbolism but adds layers of new meaning to the archetypes from the story of the Little Prince. It’s reminiscent of childhood innocence & unshakeable hope. The journey of the Little Prince reflects the journey of The Fool in traditional decks beautifully. 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 Magician. The Magician reminds you that you are in the driving seat of your life. What you say & how you act are the spells you cast to create the life you desire. Are your words & deeds aligned with your highest ideals? This week, you need to make sure they are because opportunities for manifesting miracles are in the offing! Capitalize on this potent & progressive energy current by standing, speaking & acting from a place of power. Other people & events may have some effect on you, but they can’t have more of an effect on you than you have on yourself! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 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 identify the areas 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 6th November 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” Tuesday 7th November 2023…The Chariot…Take the reins & decide your destiny by picking the path that inspires your spirit to shine. Honour your sovereign & sacred soul by mindfully pursuing your passions. The Universe reminds you that your freedom is expressed in every moment of choice. Affirm: “I advance my awakening with courage & confidence” Wednesday 8th November 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” Thursday 9th November 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. The Universe reminds you that your body is the sacred shrine that houses your divine soul. Affirm: “I embrace my power & express my divine light” Friday 10th November 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.” Saturday 11th November 2023…2 of Pentacles…Adapt & align by consciously balancing your energetic books. Temper high energy activities with periods of quietness. Switching things up maintains your momentum. The Universe reminds you that freedom & happiness are found in the flexibility & ease with which we move through change. Affirm: “My life is in flow & I flourish fruitfully” Sunday 12th November 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.

The position of this card emphasises the shadowed aspects of the archetype & indicates the obstacles that could block us from receiving the benefits & blessings of the first card. This card is often about heartache, heartbreak & hard times emotionally. But as a swords card, it’s tied to our thoughts & the way we communicate with others & ourselves. In this position, it may represent negative or limiting ideas we have about ourselves & our potential that are tied to the past experiences of trauma or heartbreak we haven't worked through. Perhaps a bad break up or a toxic friendship in the past led you to harden your heart a bit and it’s blocking you from going with the flow and expanding your options in the present? This week might be the time you resolve matters and move forward in peace and new hope. 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.

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 the Little Prince for our mystical musings. This deck deviates from the traditional symbolism but adds layers of new meaning to the archetypes from the story of the Little Prince. It’s reminiscent of childhood innocence & unshakeable hope. The journey of the Little Prince reflects the journey of The Fool in traditional decks beautifully. 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 Magician. The Magician reminds you that you are in the driving seat of your life. What you say & how you act are the spells you cast to create the life you desire. Are your words & deeds aligned with your highest ideals? This week, you need to make sure they are because opportunities for manifesting miracles are in the offing! Capitalize on this potent & progressive energy current by standing, speaking & acting from a place of power. Other people & events may have some effect on you, but they can’t have more of an effect on you than you have on yourself! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 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 identify the areas 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.
