March 2024 Musings... 25th March 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 Spinner Tarot for our medium today. This deck has an Art Nouveau energy – and a real “fairy tale” vibe. Somehow it feels very modern & very traditional at the same time. The meanings are derived from the Rider-Waite system, but some of the representations are unashamedly untraditional & inclusive! I love it, and 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 Strength card. Strength is about owning your power & deriving confidence in yourself. It’s about recognising what you gained through the challenges you faced in the past rather than fixating on what you lost. But Strength here isn’t about force or aggression at all; it’s about the inner strength you discover when you realise you can trust & rely on yourself. The beginning of finding this inner power is making the conscious decision to love yourself & extend kindness & compassion to yourself rather than criticising & judging yourself or comparing yourself to others. This week, look for opportunities to create some healing space for yourself with self-care rituals & spiritual practices like energy healing, meditation & yoga. The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week this comes in the form of the 2 of Swords. This is in no way a negative card, but in this position, we’re dealing with the shadow-aspect of the archetype. And in this context, the 2 of Swords indicates procrastination or avoidance. It can represent a mental block of some kind that’s hindering the flow of your life and therefore, limiting the flow of life-force energy. The best way to overcome the tendency to hold onto a mental block is to spend more time in meditation – creating calmness in your mind and energy field, and allowing the energy to begin flowing again. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 25th March 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” Tuesday 26th March 2024…5 of Wands…Dodge the drama & cut off from the conflict today by staying in your lane & prioritising your inner peace. Your time is precious & not everyone that demands it is deserving of it! Be discerning. The Universe reminds you that conflict requires your participation. Affirm: “I am aligned with positive & progressive change” Wednesday 27th March 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” Thursday 28th March 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 29th March 2024…9 of Wands…Prioritise meeting your own needs today. Give yourself permission to take up space without compromise. Say no to things that diminish & deplete your energy. The Universe reminds you that healthy boundaries create room for your soul to shine. Affirm: “I am complete & comfortable. Always & in all ways” Saturday 30th March 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” Sunday 31st March 2024…Page of Cups…Tune into the whispers of your heart today because your higher-self is sharing important guidance with you through symbols, numbers & dreams. The Universe reminds you that you are a spiritual being having a human experience & your soul is always in communion with the divine. Affirm: “My source is bountiful & blessed” 18th March 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 Anima Mundi Tarot for our medium today. These cards are based on the traditional meanings but with nature-based symbolism & artwork. The presence of so many animals in a deck always draws me in. But this deck is very special to me because some of the archetypes are represented by trees – and some of my best friends are trees, so I love to see the cards depicted in this unique way. The presence of so many dolphins and whales also makes this deck a special one for me as those are energies I work with a great deal when I’m channelling new music or connecting with Lemurian energies. 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 Cups. The Knight of Cups is the archetypal lover that brings deeper meaning & joy to life. He interprets the world through a poetic lens & glories in the glittering greatness of life. His presence in this position reminds us to appreciate the little things & reassures us that our search for the silver lining will always meet success. Hold your highest ideals & pursue your passion. Staying true to yourself this week keeps your energy flowing in the direction of your dreams & brings the beauty & blessings that will nourish your soul. 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 10 of Swords. The 10 of Swords can reflect a point of despair – but it can also reflect a point of “being done” in a more positive sense. It’s the point of finally drawing a line under everything after a period of stress or upset. It’s about saying “that’s that” & then moving on without looking back. In this position, this card could indicate it’s time to get over yourself & move beyond restrictive thoughts you’ve invested way too much time & energy into. If that sounds like you, it’s time to stop feeding your fears & limitations so you can put your energy to better use! 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 18th March 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” Tuesday 19th March 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” Wednesday 20th March 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” Thursday 21st March 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” Friday 22nd March 2024…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” Saturday 23rd March 2024…Knight of Pentacles…The most powerful healing is the healing you give to yourself. Soothe your frayed edges by showing yourself kindness & consideration today. Slow down & find your grounding. The Universe reminds you that you can’t pour from an empty cup, so take care of yourself first. Affirm: “I embody the wholeness of my soul” Sunday 24th March 2024…4 of Pentacles…Hold onto your power by being careful where you put your energy. Protecting yourself from gossip, drama & negativity is an important part of self-care. The Universe reminds you that keeping healthy boundaries is part of love. Affirm: “I pursue the path of healing & wholeness. One step at a time” 11th March 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 Starlight Illuminated Rider Waite Tarot from Carol Herzer. This deck depicts all the original artwork but recoloured and enhanced to bring the energy of the cards to life. Her illuminations create a feeling of energy flowing through the different archetypes and this can add new layers of meaning to individual cards as well as shift the way the cards interact with each other. 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 and progressing the path to wholeness is reflected in the Judgement card. This card indicates opportunities for levelling up and accelerating the ascension path for those who are ready to make a choice to leave the past behind. If you’ve been feeling stagnant or have felt blocks from the past messing with your energy flow in the present, this week may be the perfect time for you to sit down with yourself, have a big think about everything, and make a decision to move forward with your life in a new way. Progress is path that doesn’t always take a straight line. Sometimes, a well-timed and heart-felt decision can propel you forward into new and exciting places. Life is an adventure! If fear has been holding you back, now’s the time to choose a different way to be. What do you want to become? How do you want to be? And how do you want your future to feel? And there’s excellent news when it comes to the potential opposition we may face this week: there is no negative, restrictive or oppressive energetic current in line to derail our plans! Rather, the 3 of Cups indicates opportunities for festivities, fun, frivolity & friends. Sharing the love is what it’s all about, so don’t keep your joy to yourself. Take every opportunity to enjoy yourself & express your gratitude for the things that bring you abundance, beauty & happiness this week. Where you focus your energy, things expand – so focus on only the things you want to see more of. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 11th March 2024…Page of Pentacles…Curry your curiosity & muster your motivation by considering new ideas. Keep your goals in mind because the inspiration that will take you to them is in the offing. The Universe reminds you that your intuition is your soul speaking to you. Listen carefully! Affirm: “I align with a soul-nourishing destiny” Tuesday 12th March 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.” Wednesday 13th March 2024…The Lovers…Love magnifies the magick in all areas of your life. Lean into your loving connection to the world to appreciate the sacredness of your soulful life. The Universe reminds you that love is the power that connects all things to all things. Affirm: “Love is the song of the Soul of the Universe” Thursday 14th March 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 15th March 2024…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” Saturday 16th March 2024…8 of Pentacles…Channel your energy into developing skills to find your grounding today. Artistic projects offer opportunities for spiritual expression. Your inner light can be shared with the world through your creativity. The Universe reminds you that every act of will is an act of magick. Affirm: “My heart is open to the magickal & miraculous” Sunday 17th March 2024…5 of Wands…Dodge the drama & cut off from the conflict today by staying in your lane & prioritising your inner peace. Your time is precious & not everyone that demands it is deserving of it! Be discerning. The Universe reminds you that conflict requires your participation. Affirm: “I am aligned with positive & progressive change” 4th March 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 Spirit Song Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck features pretty pastel-coloured images of animals throughout – and its whimsical style amplifies the magickal side of the majestic creatures depicted. Paulina Cassidy’s artwork resonates strongly with me at times I'm working with animal healing systems and connecting with dolphin healing energy for last week’s special offer course has inspired me to reach for these beautiful cards. 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 Star. It doesn’t get better than this! The Star is a card of hope, healing and happiness & suggests connection with celestial forces at this time to help us progress the journey of love. The Star invites us to explore our highest spiritual goals through imagination & visualisation & assures us that we can make out-of-this-world progress this week if we keep our hearts open & our optimism shining out. Be open to the possibilities because things could turn out far better than you ever dared to dream! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 5 of Swords. This isn’t a negative card, but in this position, we are looking at the negative aspect of the archetype. This energy implies mental conflict or competition. Competing with others means creating energetic attachments to them & investing those attachments with your power. Ultimately, these can be very harmful kinds of attachments that damage our self-esteem & limit our view of ourselves & our potential. So this week, keep your highest ideals in your heart and allow your higher self to guide you in the right direction. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 4th March 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” Tuesday 5th March 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” Wednesday 6th March 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” Thursday 7th March 2024…10 of Cups…Extravagant energies encourage you to dream bigger! Blessings & beneficence abound & bountiful benevolence is demonstrated in your life. The Universe reminds you that bringing your focus to what you enjoy can be a perfect prayer. Celebrate the small things & big things will happen today. Affirm: “I am prospered & protected by divine love” Friday 8th March 2024…Queen of Wands…Your confidence shines today. Pursue your passions with style & a winning smile! Don’t be afraid to do things differently. The Universe reminds you that it falls in love with a stubborn heart. Be uncompromising & keep progressing your path with positivity. Affirm: “Everything I touch turns to gold” Saturday 9th March 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” Sunday 10th March 2024…7 of Swords…A break with convention opens the door to opulent opportunity today. Confound your own expectations by doing things you didn’t plan to do in ways you haven’t done them before. The Universe reminds you that to manifest your gifts, you need to embrace your eccentricity. Affirm: “My authenticity paves the path of progress & peace” -------------------------------------------- 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!

Her illuminations create a feeling of energy flowing through the different archetypes and this can add new layers of meaning to individual cards as well as shift the way the cards interact with each other. 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 and progressing the path to wholeness is reflected in the Judgement card. This card indicates opportunities for levelling up and accelerating the ascension path for those who are ready to make a choice to leave the past behind. If you’ve been feeling stagnant or have felt blocks from the past messing with your energy flow in the present, this week may be the perfect time for you to sit down with yourself, have a big think about everything, and make a decision to move forward with your life in a new way. Progress is path that doesn’t always take a straight line. Sometimes, a well-timed and heart-felt decision can propel you forward into new and exciting places. Life is an adventure! If fear has been holding you back, now’s the time to choose a different way to be. What do you want to become? How do you want to be? And how do you want your future to feel? And there’s excellent news when it comes to the potential opposition we may face this week: there is no negative, restrictive or oppressive energetic current in line to derail our plans! Rather, the 3 of Cups indicates opportunities for festivities, fun, frivolity & friends. Sharing the love is what it’s all about, so don’t keep your joy to yourself. Take every opportunity to enjoy yourself & express your gratitude for the things that bring you abundance, beauty & happiness this week. Where you focus your energy, things expand – so focus on only the things you want to see more of. 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 Spirit Song Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck features pretty pastel-coloured images of animals throughout – and its whimsical style amplifies the magickal side of the majestic creatures depicted. Paulina Cassidy’s artwork resonates strongly with me at times I'm working with animal healing systems and connecting with dolphin healing energy for last week’s special offer course has inspired me to reach for these beautiful cards. 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 Star. It doesn’t get better than this! The Star is a card of hope, healing and happiness & suggests connection with celestial forces at this time to help us progress the journey of love. The Star invites us to explore our highest spiritual goals through imagination & visualisation & assures us that we can make out-of-this-world progress this week if we keep our hearts open & our optimism shining out. Be open to the possibilities because things could turn out far better than you ever dared to dream! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of the 5 of Swords. This isn’t a negative card, but in this position, we are looking at the negative aspect of the archetype. This energy implies mental conflict or competition. Competing with others means creating energetic attachments to them & investing those attachments with your power. Ultimately, these can be very harmful kinds of attachments that damage our self-esteem & limit our view of ourselves & our potential. So this week, keep your highest ideals in your heart and allow your higher self to guide you in the right direction. And now we turn to the daily cards for the week-ahead. These cards depict & define the archetypal energetic influences we can harness to optimise our personal power & increase our inspiration in the coming days. Monday 4th March 2024…4 of Swords…Set aside time for rest, relaxation & recuperation. Balance is found by creating the energetic space for yourself to breathe.
