January 2024 Musings... 29th January 2024…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 Ace of Cups. This is a beautiful card, reflecting opulent energies & auspicious openings for all of us! The Ace of Cups signifies the flow of abundance in all areas of life bringing an increase in healing, happiness & hope. It brings fulfilment & satisfaction through strengthening love & relationships & inspires us to pursue the habits & hobbies that bring us joy. This is the card of wishes coming true so it’s important to maintain your highest ideals & cultivate a positive attitude in order to ensure that the blessings the Universe has designated for you can find their way into your life. 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 29th January 2024…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” Tuesday 30th January 2024…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 31st January 2024…Page of Wands…It’s time to get excited about the future! Visualise the life of your dreams & invest your energetic creation with passion & promise. Smile with satisfaction as you define your destiny. The Universe reminds you that thoughts become things – so control your mind. Affirm: “I am open to a life of prosperity & progress” Thursday 1st February 2024…5 of Swords… Everyone is a winner at being themselves & living their own life – including you! Appreciate your wins, but never by comparing yourself with others. The Universe reminds you that the only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday. Affirm: “I accept my wholeness & express my soulness” Friday 2nd February 2024…9 of Swords…The solution to oppressive thoughts & restrictive beliefs comes from within. Now is the time! You’ve grown beyond the confines of your fear. Recognising your patterns reveals new & empowering ways of doing things. The Universe reminds you that courage is overcoming fear, not eradicating it. Affirm: “Today I exceed yesterday’s limitations” Saturday 3rd February 2024…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” Sunday 4th February 2024…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!” 22nd January 2024…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet.

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 looks at the potential opposition we may face in pursuing the promises of the first card. And the good news is, no significant oppositional or restrictive energetic currents are anticipated this week! The Empress is the Goddess of Love & she bestows her blessings on those pursuing all forms of spiritual love. She is the goddess of hearth & home, as well as healing – so pursue activities that make you feel connected, cared- for & comfortable. Crafts & creative projects can help you to disconnect from your thoughts. Contemplation & compassion are key. 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 22nd January 2024…3 of Wands…Wherever you put your attention, the Universe supports you in realising your goals. Bring a bountiful, beautiful & blessed life to bear by keeping a positive attitude. The Universe reminds you that expressing gratitude for all you have allows boundless blessings to burgeon. Affirm: “I am aligned with positive & progressive change” Tuesday 23rd January 2024…The Star…Look up! Celestial bodies are aligned in your favour & encouraging you to make a soul-felt wish today. Fortune favours the free & fabulous, so choose to shine like the star you are! The Universe reminds you that nothing can dim the light that shines from within. Affirm: “Mine is the light of limitless love” Wednesday 24th January 2024…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” Thursday 25th January 2024…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” Friday 26th January 2024…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” Saturday 27th January 2024…The Devil…Thought habits can become blocks but your perceived limitations may not exist in reality! The Universe reminds you that your imagination is your key to exceeding yourself. A world of possibilities exists for you right now. Switch off the inner critic & listen to your soul. Affirm: “I progress my path with passion & purpose” Sunday 28th January 2024…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” 15th January 2024…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 Moon Garden for our medium today. These cards really draw you into a magickal landscape – the night skies and the reflection of different moon phases express new layers of meaning and the vibrant colours add a dream-like dimension to the imagery. They are favourite of mine because I enjoy the psychedelic palette and mystical and mythical symbolism. 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 Knight of Pentacles. For me, this is always the card for healing work & self-supporting spiritual practices like journaling, yoga & meditation. Its presence in this position indicates opportunities for deep healing, soul-cleansing & awakening to new realities. But specifically, the Knight of Pentacles reminds us to look to ourselves for solutions & sustenance. Create space for yourself to unwind & fully relax in order to bring yourself back to your body. Dedicate extra time to your spiritual practice this week & prioritise your self-care rituals. Avoid multitasking as much as possible to help you slow down your thoughts & align with the present moment. Your keywords this week are: relaxation, restoration & replenishment. 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 7 of Wands. This isn’t a negative card, but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. And in shadow, the 7 of Wands can indicate feeling like your back is against the wall and that you’re under some kind of attack. This can be due to circumstances, or perhaps people around you creating friction and triggering your anxiety. But whatever the cause, there’s always something you can do about it. Shift your perspective by bringing your focus to self-care and healing. Make time to ground yourself with practical activities that help you burn off your nervous energy like cleaning the house, going to the gym or decluttering your wardrobe. This card can also be a reminder that you have the experience to deal with difficult times and difficult people. There’s nothing to worry or stress about. You’ve got this. 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 15th January 2024…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.” Tuesday 16th January 2024…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” Wednesday 17th January 2024…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 18th January 2024… 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 19th January 2024…7 of Pentacles…When you’ve done all you can do, it’s time to rest & patiently await the fruits of your labour. Maintain your highest intentions while you wait. The Universe reminds you that balance means working when there’s work to do, but resting when there’s not. Affirm: “The future is aligned with hope & happiness” Saturday 20th January 2024…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 21st January 2024…The Hierophant…Ancient wisdom informs your journey to wholeness. Meditation & energy healing can help you to awaken your inner shaman in order to tap into reserves of ancestral spiritual power. The Universe reminds you to be receptive to the guidance & gifts of the spiritual-beings that support you. Affirm: “I am the master of my destiny” 8th January 2024…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 Wheel of Fortune. This card indicates a shift in the etheric tides that manifests beneficial change. If you’ve been feeling at a low ebb, the tide is about to come in for you! If you’ve been procrastinating, your focus & energy may be revived by a sudden upswing in motivation. Look for the opportunities for growth to ensure you channel this powerful energetic current in ways that will enhance your life & inspire your spirit. Be open to the blessings the Universe bestows on you. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of 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 8th January 2024…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 9th January 2024…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” Wednesday 10th January 2024…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 11th January 2024…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 12th January 2024…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” Saturday 13th January 2024…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” Sunday 14th January 2024…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” 1st January 2024…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 Four of Wands. In this position this card reminds us to mark the occasion, celebrate our successes and exploit every opportunity to dance our happy dances. This card also indicates fast moving energy and swift changes. You have a lot to celebrate right now, but don’t stop here because you’re on your way to bigger and better things. The future promises more reasons to celebrate if you continue to pursue your highest ideals and express your soul with authenticity and audacity. The Universe believes in you! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 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 that 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 1st January 2024…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 2nd January 2024…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” Wednesday 3rd January 2024…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” Thursday 4th January 2024…The Hermit…Take a break from negative thinking by diligently disregarding your inner critic today. Look for the light within & it will illuminate the world around you with meaning & magick. The Universe reminds you that you have untapped reservoirs of wisdom in your soul. Affirm: “I am guided by the limitless light within” Friday 5th January 2024…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” Saturday 6th January 2024…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” Sunday 7th January 2024…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” -------------------------------------------- www.facebook.com/annalouisemay.muse www.facebook.com/mayastaracademy www.twitter.com/mayastar www.youtube.com/c/mayastarofficial www.pinterest.com/alm_mayastar www.instagram.com/annalouisemay www.annalouisemay.wordpress.com I wish you a magnificent week!

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.

And the good news is, no significant oppositional or restrictive energetic currents are anticipated this week! The Empress is the Goddess of Love & she bestows her blessings on those pursuing all forms of spiritual love. She is the goddess of hearth & home, as well as healing – so pursue activities that make you feel connected, cared-for & comfortable. Crafts & creative projects can help you to disconnect from your thoughts. Contemplation & compassion are key. 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 is open to boundless blessings” Friday 26th January 2024…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” Saturday 27th January 2024…The Devil…Thought habits can become blocks but your perceived limitations may not exist in reality!

Affirm: “I am present in peace, power & purpose” 15th January 2024…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 Moon Garden for our medium today. These cards really draw you into a magickal landscape – the night skies and the reflection of different moon phases express new layers of meaning and the vibrant colours add a dream-like dimension to the imagery. They are favourite of mine because I enjoy the psychedelic palette and mystical and mythical symbolism. 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 Knight of Pentacles. For me, this is always the card for healing work & self-supporting spiritual practices like journaling, yoga & meditation. Its presence in this position indicates opportunities for deep healing, soul-cleansing & awakening to new realities. But specifically, the Knight of Pentacles reminds us to look to ourselves for solutions & sustenance. Create space for yourself to unwind & fully relax in order to bring yourself back to your body. Dedicate extra time to your spiritual practice this week & prioritise your self-care rituals. Avoid multitasking as much as possible to help you slow down your thoughts & align with the present moment. Your keywords this week are: relaxation, restoration & replenishment. 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 7 of Wands. This isn’t a negative card, but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. And in shadow, the 7 of Wands can indicate feeling like your back is against the wall and that you’re under some kind of attack. This can be due to circumstances, or perhaps people around you creating friction and triggering your anxiety. But whatever the cause, there’s always something you can do about it. Shift your perspective by bringing your focus to self-care and healing. Make time to ground yourself with practical activities that help you burn off your nervous energy like cleaning the house, going to the gym or decluttering your wardrobe. This card can also be a reminder that you have the experience to deal with difficult times and difficult people. There’s nothing to worry or stress about. You’ve got this. 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 15th January 2024…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.” Tuesday 16th January 2024…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” Wednesday 17th January 2024…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 18th January 2024… 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 19th January 2024…7 of Pentacles…When you’ve done all you can do, it’s time to rest & patiently await the fruits of your labour. Maintain your highest intentions while you wait. The Universe reminds you that balance means working when there’s work to do, but resting when there’s not.

Affirm: “I am the master of my destiny” 8th January 2024…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 Wheel of Fortune. This card indicates a shift in the etheric tides that manifests beneficial change. If you’ve been feeling at a low ebb, the tide is about to come in for you! If you’ve been procrastinating, your focus & energy may be revived by a sudden upswing in motivation. Look for the opportunities for growth to ensure you channel this powerful energetic current in ways that will enhance your life & inspire your spirit. Be open to the blessings the Universe bestows on you. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of 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 8th January 2024…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.

Affirm: “I align with progress & prosper prolifically” Tuesday 9th January 2024…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” Wednesday 10th January 2024…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 11th January 2024…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 12th January 2024…9 of Pentacles…Healing happens when you move closer to your authentic power.

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” Saturday 13th January 2024…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” Sunday 14th January 2024…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” 1st January 2024…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 Four of Wands. In this position this card reminds us to mark the occasion, celebrate our successes and exploit every opportunity to dance our happy dances. This card also indicates fast moving energy and swift changes. You have a lot to celebrate right now, but don’t stop here because you’re on your way to bigger and better things. The future promises more reasons to celebrate if you continue to pursue your highest ideals and express your soul with authenticity and audacity. The Universe believes in you! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 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 that 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 1st January 2024…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 2nd January 2024…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” Wednesday 3rd January 2024…Knight of Swords…You have the momentum to make magick happen!
