February 2024 Musings... 26th February 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 Traditional Manga Tarot for our mystical meanderings today. This deck is based on the original Rider Waite system but the characters and scenes are expressed in manga-style artwork. I love the limited palette of this deck, but what really draws me in is the sense of movement and activity in every card. It’s a truly magickal deck and 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 2 of Pentacles. This card recommends us to focus on maintaining a healthy balance this week. “All work & no play makes Jack a dull boy” reminds us that a lack of balance can negatively affect us & those around us. Temper your work ethic with a relaxation ethic this week to ensure you don’t overdo it! Set aside time for self-care, soul-nourishing creative activities, relaxation or meditation. Unwinding your mind creates space for better decision making & efficiency in other tasks. So go with the flow & don’t get too fixated on any one thing 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 3 of Swords. This can be a challenging card but in this position, it’s a caution against dwelling on the downsides or focusing too much on the details of things that have already passed. While attending to self-care, sometimes negative thoughts or repetitive patterns of cynicism or catastrophizing can be recognised & resolved. The presence of the 3 of Swords in this position reminds us that facing our emotional reality doesn’t mean getting stuck in those feelings. If the emotions are too overwhelming or unbalanced, bring your attention back to the present. When you’re grounded in the present, you naturally move away from being grounded in 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 26th February 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” Tuesday 27th February 2024…Strength…Find your fortitude & realise your resilience by connecting with your inner strength. The Universe reminds you that your power comes from trusting yourself to respond to challenges with wisdom rather than force. Light crystallises around you to form a shield of protection & peace. Affirm: “My soul is whole. My spirit is true” Wednesday 28th February 2024…The Magician…Your skills & savvy come to the fore today. 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 29th February 2024…8 of Swords…Open your eyes to the world that exists beyond the bounds of your beliefs. Move beyond the tyranny of trepidation by mastering your mental state. The Universe reminds you that courage means feeling the fear and doing it anyway! Affirm: “I leave behind my limitations day, by day, by day” Friday 1st March 2024…Page of Swords…Where you place your attention, you place your power. Rise above fear & limitation by opening your mind to new possibilities. The Universe reminds you that every day brings you closer to happiness when you choose the words & ways that align with your soul. Affirm: “I dance towards my divine destiny” Saturday 2nd March 2024…6 of Pentacles…Abundance surrounds you & reflects past success. Appreciate your glow-up! You have enough glitz, glamour & greatness in your life to make you shine & light up the lives of those around you. The Universe reminds you that energy exchange makes the world go round. Affirm: “My heart sings & my soul smiles” Sunday 3rd March 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” 19th February 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 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, and some of my recent artwork definitely looks like it was inspired by this deck so I’ve been reaching for it more in the last couple of weeks! 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 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 declutter 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 4 of Cups. This is not necessarily a negative card, but in this position, we’re looking at the shadow-aspect of the archetype. This card cautions us to guard against apathy and ingratitude. Not recognising our blessings can cause us to focus too much on what we lack. That kind of focus can prevent us from recognising the supportive healing energies and opportunities the Universe presents to us. So be careful not to fall into the trap of negative thinking 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 19th February 2024…Wheel of Fortune…Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, blessings of luminous luck & fantastic fortune fall upon you! Align with this expansive current by focusing on gratitude during your meditations today. The Universe reminds you that change is inevitable, but progress is optional. Affirm: “I am sacred, special & supported by spiritual love” Tuesday 20th February 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” Wednesday 21st February 2024…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” Thursday 22nd February 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” Friday 23rd February 2024…Page of Swords…Where you place your attention, you place your power. Rise above fear & limitation by opening your mind to new possibilities. The Universe reminds you that every day brings you closer to happiness when you choose the words & ways that align with your soul. Affirm: “I dance towards my divine destiny” Saturday 24th February 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” Sunday 25th February 2024…10 of Wands…Relax a bit! Not everything needs to be accomplished in one day! Every small step takes you closer to the life of your dreams. The Universe reminds you that temperance is requisite for happiness. Balance your productivity with time for simply being. Affirm: “I move towards magnificence step by step by step” 12th February 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 Sun and Moon Tarot for our mystical meanderings today. This deck is based on the Thoth deck and includes dreamy scenes, lots of dolphins and magickal symbols. There’s a lot to draw from in every card and it’s a wonderful deck to use for meditating on the archetypes because it diverges a great deal from the traditional tarot, while still expressing the traditional themes of each card. 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 3 of Cups. This is a card of jubilation and connection. It brings positive emotional energy into the mix and is the card of the “happy dance” for me! In this position, things couldn’t be better. Occasions to celebrate & share good times with friends & family are heading our way this week. The 3 of Cups points to success, things to smile about & an increase in happiness & hope. Maintaining a positive attitude will help you to recognise the brilliance & blessings around you. A grateful heart will help you to draw power & healing from the good times that propel you toward new opportunities. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the Knight of Swords. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. The Knight of Swords can be too impulsive and can easily end up pursuing the next idea before he’s finished working with the current one. His inability to ground himself enough to see things through can prevent him from progressing in any real sense, while keeping him very busy! If you see yourself in the Knight of Swords, this week, commit to taking things slowly & avoid multi-tasking. If you feel like you don’t have time to meditate, you need to meditate for twice as long! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 12th February 2024…6 of Cups…Give yourself the gift of light- heartedness by finding the funny side of things. Indulge the inner child by doing something for the sheer enjoyment of it today. The Universe reminds you that your childhood innocence reflects the authenticity of your soul. Lean into levity to remember yourself. Affirm: “My life inspires joy & jubilation” Tuesday 13th February 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” Wednesday 14th February 2024…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 15th February 2024…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” Friday 16th February 2024…5 of Pentacles…Empower yourself by consciously moving your mind away from thoughts of lack, limitation & lamentation. Define your direction by visualising positive outcomes & inspire yourself by imagining just how brilliantly things could go! The Universe reminds you that energy flows where your attention goes. Affirm: “I manifest miracles & magick” Saturday 17th February 2024…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” Sunday 18th February 2024…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” 5th February 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 Ceccoli Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck was created with pre-existing artwork so it depicts the tarot archetypes in non-traditional ways which opens up new layers of meaning. The art style is sweet but also dark in places and always evocative, enchanting and esoteric. It’s been a favourite deck of mine for many years now – especially for tarot meditations and pathworkings because the Ceccoli world is one that really resonates deeply with me. 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 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 Page of Wands. This is in no way a negative card but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. Taking into account the guidance of the first card, this card cautions us against trying to do too many things at once. Your passion & impetuousness could tie you up in knots this week by scattering your attention & energy. If you focus on too many things this week, you may end up competing with yourself & wasting your time. Seek balance & pace yourself. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 5th February 2024…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” Tuesday 6th February 2024…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” Wednesday 7th February 2024…6 of Swords…Take time out for rest & recuperation. Reconnect with your higher self & highest ideals through magickal & meaningful self-care rituals. The Universe reminds you that the spiritual journey is the overcoming of fear & the acceptance of love. Affirm: “My every cell & atom resounds with pure love & divine light” Thursday 8th February 2024…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” Friday 9th February 2024…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” Saturday 10th February 2024…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” Sunday 11th February 2024…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” -------------------------------------------- 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!

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 3 of Cups. This is a card of jubilation and connection. It brings positive emotional energy into the mix and is the card of the “happy dance” for me! In this position, things couldn’t be better. Occasions to celebrate & share good times with friends & family are heading our way this week. The 3 of Cups points to success, things to smile about & an increase in happiness & hope. Maintaining a positive attitude will help you to recognise the brilliance & blessings around you. A grateful heart will help you to draw power & healing from the good times that propel you toward new opportunities. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the Knight of Swords. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position we’re looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. The Knight of Swords can be too impulsive and can easily end up pursuing the next idea before he’s finished working with the current one. His inability to ground himself enough to see things through can prevent him from progressing in any real sense, while keeping him very busy! If you see yourself in the Knight of Swords, this week, commit to taking things slowly & avoid multi-tasking. If you feel like you don’t have time to meditate, you need to meditate for twice as long! And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days.

Affirm: “I pursue the path of healing & wholeness” 5th February 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 Ceccoli Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck was created with pre-existing artwork so it depicts the tarot archetypes in non-traditional ways which opens up new layers of meaning. The art style is sweet but also dark in places and always evocative, enchanting and esoteric. It’s been a favourite deck of mine for many years now – especially for tarot meditations and pathworkings because the Ceccoli world is one that really resonates deeply with me. 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 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 Page of Wands. This is in no way a negative card but in this position we’re dealing with the shadowed aspect of the archetype. Taking into account the guidance of the first card, this card cautions us against trying to do too many things at once. Your passion & impetuousness could tie you up in knots this week by scattering your attention & energy. If you focus on too many things this week, you may end up competing with yourself & wasting your time. Seek balance & pace yourself. 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.
