Maya Muses - Daily Spiritual Guidance Messages for the Collective

Inspiration to enhance your healing journey & spiritual development

January 2023 Musings... NEXT Killing Moon Karmic Reversal 30-Day Intensive: 19th Feb 2023 NEXT Luring Moon Abundance 30-Day Intensive: 5th Feb 2023 INTRODUCTORY OFFER: Wheel of Light Starseed Activation: Indigo Aura Attunement NEW Article - The Chakras: Your Questions Answered YouTube: Light-Language Meditation: Wheel of Light Starseed Activation - Indigo Aura with Binaural Beats Deviant Art Gallery - Updated In Jan 30th January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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 King of Wands. In this position the King of Wands reveals great opportunities opening for those who are prepared to take action, step into their power & exercise their sovereignty. Whatever your hopes and goals are, this week’s high energies give you a push in the right direction! It’s going to be a case of striking while the iron is hot though. Procrastination is the enemy of progress so be ready to act! You can effectively utilise the potent celestial energies at play by considering your course & executing your plans with confidence, courage & charisma. The Universe is telling you that the ball is in your court this week! The second card identifies the potential opposition we may face in pursuit of the promises of the first card. And this week, this comes in the form of The High Priestess. This is in no way a negative card but in relation to the first card and the elucidations it provided, the presence of this card in this position warns us to guard against getting too much into our feelings this week or spending too much time contemplating the possibilities. Sensitive souls tend to be more thoughtful, cautious & considerate when planning their path – and in many ways, that’s a good thing! But sometimes, that tendency can mean missing out on opportunities that require us to act fast. This week, be mindful of keeping your analytical tendencies in check by staying grounded. 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 30th January 2023…The Chariot…Aim high by harnessing your highest ambitions & audacity. Explore the edges & extremities of your free- spirit by consciously taking the reins & deciding your destiny. The Universe reminds you that your freedom is expressed in every moment of choice. Take each step mindfully & focus on the road ahead. Affirm: “When I move, the Universe moves with me” Tuesday 31st January 2023…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” Wednesday 1st February 2023…4 of Wands…Today brings opulent opportunities for the dancing of your happy dance! Whatever inspires your smile or warms your heart today, it’s time to mark the occasion. The Universe reminds you that you co-create your reality; so keep your hopes high & count your blessings often. Affirm: “My soul sings the song of success” Thursday 2nd February 2023…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 3rd February 2023…7 of Cups…Define a journey to joy & jubilation by exploring your desires in technicolour daydreams. Open your mind to magick by entertaining eclectic & enchanting ideas. The Universe reminds you that all good things come to those who believe all good things are possible! Affirm: “I am open to manifesting miracles & magnificence” Saturday 4th February 2023…9 of Cups…Make a wish because the Universe is feeling generous today! Demonstrations of abundance & prosperity abound & surround you. Appreciate all that brings you comfort, cosiness & contentment. The Universe reminds you that it’s the little things that are the big things in the end. Affirm: “Step by step, I dance towards my dreams” Sunday 5th February 2023…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” 23rd January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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 Guardian of the Night Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck has a very earthy feel with animals depicted throughout. Although it’s not traditional in the depictions of the archetypes, the magickal manifestations of nature perfectly express the meanings of the cards for those familiar with the Rider-Waite system. It’s still winter here & this deck perfectly suits the season! 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 8 of Pentacles. This card reminds us that to achieve greatness we need to embrace commitment, determination & discipline. To become excellent at anything, we need to practice it! This week, great progress can be made by devoting time & energy to developing your skills & mastering your art. Maybe you struggle to dedicate yourself to a project because you feel it’s unimportant or you feel it’s more important to prioritize other things? Perhaps this week, you can appreciate that not all growth is obvious & not all success is visible. Sometimes, the warm glow of accomplishment boosts your confidence & heals your self-esteem. Whatever you put your energy into, you are prospered by 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 Devil. The Devil has positive aspects but in this position, we are concerned with the shadowy side of the archetype. And this week, this card warns us against toxic motivations & negative habits. If you have a tendency to derive your self-worth from other peoples’ approval, you may find that you choose your activities based on what you think other people think. This week, to progress your healing journey, perhaps its time to let go of those old insecurities, do what feels right for you & offer yourself the validation & acceptance you seek. 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 23rd January 2023…The Hermit…Sometimes resting & relaxing is the most productive pursuit. Disconnect from the drama & put your phone on silent for a few hours. Create a sacred sanctuary for yourself by spending time in meditation. The Universe reminds you that you have untapped reservoirs of wisdom in your soul. Affirm: “I am guided by the limitless light within” Tuesday 24th January 2023…2 of Pentacles…Stay centred! Today, temper high energy activities with time for meditation & quiet. By switching things up you maintain your momentum & success follows. The Universe reminds you that freedom & happiness are found in the flexibility & ease with which we navigate change. Affirm: “In flex & flow I flourish & find my force” Wednesday 25th January 2023…Page of Swords…Open your mind to magick by entertaining eclectic & enchanting ideas. Where you place attention, you place your energy. Visualise the future of your dreams to explore your heart’s true desires in your imagination. The Universe reminds you that your destiny is defined by your decisions. Affirm: “Moment by moment, I align with my magnificence” Thursday 26th January 2023…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” Friday 27th January 2023…Strength…Kindness is key today! Find reserves of potency & power by extending unconditional love & acceptance to yourself. Elevate your heart by tuning into your feelings & showing yourself compassion. The Universe reminds you that your instincts & intuition are spiritual gifts that can guide you to authenticity. Affirm: “I accept. I adapt. I ascend. I awaken” Saturday 28th January 2023…Page of Cups…Your intuition is primed so look for sacred numbers & synchronistic symbols today. Spiritual forces support & guide you through dreams, visions & heart-felt hunches. The Universe reminds you that your heart doesn’t lie. Listen to yourself & trust your feelings. Affirm: “I am continuously connected to my divine source” Sunday 29th January 2023…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” 16th January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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 Happy Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck follows the traditional Rider-Waite system as far as the symbolism & scenery go. But the archetypes are expressed in pretty pastel colours & with a super cute anime style. They sound like they could be a novelty deck, but their messages are always on point, magickal & meaningful. 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 Cups. This isn’t a negative card, but in this position, we are looking at the shadowed aspect of the archetype which relates to how it could block energy or hinder our progress. The 5 of Cups in shadow can indicate a tendency to focus on the past & relive negative experiences without the intention of healing or moving on from them. Rather, it can be about dwelling on our darkness in such a way that we lose perspective & our thoughts & feelings begin to reflect limitation of the past rather than aligning us with new ways of being. If you have a tendency to ruminate or amp up your anxiety with a constant stream of “what ifs”, this week, try to notice when your thoughts are getting you lost in the weeds, & interrupt yourself by changing your 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 16th January 2023…Ace of Pentacles…Manifest milk & honey miracles by putting your energy into the things that nourish your soul today. Gratitude aligns you with glory & greatness in all areas of your life! The Universe reminds you that creativity is intelligence at play. Affirm: “I create a life that befits my beautiful & bountiful soul” Tuesday 17th January 2023…4 of Cups…You are surrounded by opulence & opportunity, but to awaken to the wonders, you need to shift your focus. The Universe reminds you that life reflects what you carry within. Recognise the treasure of your heart & see the world transmuted into glorious golden goodness around you. Affirm: “I am lifted & loved by the Light” Wednesday 18th January 2023…7 of Cups…Open your mind to magick by entertaining eclectic & enchanting ideas. Visualise the future of your dreams to explore your heart’s true desires. The Universe reminds you to live from your imagination, not your history. All things are possible if you believe all things are possible. Affirm: “I am open to manifesting miracles & magnificence” Thursday 19th January 2023…The Hermit…Follow your inner light by disconnecting from the demands of the outside world today. Attend to your spiritual needs. Move slowly & quietly through your day & allow peace to suffuse your spirit. The Universe reminds you that happiness is an inside job. Affirm: “I align with the peace & perfection of simply being” Friday 20th January 2023…Queen of Pentacles…Appreciate abundance at home & marvel at the magick that surrounds you. Indulge your soul by focusing on what brings you peace & pleasure to find sacred grounding today. The Universe reminds you that you carry your spiritual home within your heart & are always loved. Affirm: “I am at home in my heart” Saturday 21st January 2023…6 of Cups…Give yourself the gift of light- heartedness by daring to delight in your light. Not all lightwork feels like work! Indulge the inner child by doing something for the sheer enjoyment of it today. The Universe invites you to explore your authenticity by playfully perusing your imagination. Affirm: “Everything is good & great & brilliant & beautiful” Sunday 22nd January 2023…The 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” 9th January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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, dark skies & magickal symbolism make this the perfect deck for exploring the mysterious & mystical! 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 Justice card. The Justice card reminds us to keep a cool head this week. Approach the tasks, chores & challenges of the week with calmness & don’t be drawn into the drama. If you tend to get emotionally entangled with your day, a good way to disconnect is to go to bed early & spend the additional time focusing on releasing & forgiving all the attachments created during the day to allow you to restore your energetic integrity while you sleep. The Justice energy reminds us to create enough mental space that when we need to think fast, we have the capacity to do it. 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, aligning with the Justice energy in order to progress our path means disconnecting from external attachments, judgements & habits in order to free the mind & restore energetic flow. 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 9th January 2023…8 of Pentacles…Channel your energy into developing skills & making things 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” Tuesday 10th January 2023…5 of Wands…Sometimes our inner conflict can help us to work out what we really want. Notice areas of resistance & focus on releasing the past. Let go of limitations that no longer apply to you or your fantastical future! The Universe reminds you that conflict requires your participation. Affirm: “I release the past to make way for my prosperous potential” Wednesday 11th January 2023…The Emperor…When this archetype is awakened 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 12th January 2023…3 of Wands…Your hard work pays off today. 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” Friday 13th January 2023…Strength…The light crystallises around you to form a shield of protection & peace. Your heart expands to embrace your wildness & illuminates the shadows at the edges of your reality. The Universe reminds you that radical self-acceptance means extending kindness, compassion & charity to every part of yourself. Affirm: “My heart embraces my soul; I’m treasured, accepted & whole.” Saturday 14th January 2023…King of Wands…You have the power to transmute your passion into prosperity & progress. Express your sacred soul by taking centre stage in your life today. Your enthusiasm is contagious & inspires those around you. The Universe reminds you that your potential far exceeds the limited ideas you have about yourself. Affirm: “Limitless love flows within me & around me” Sunday 15th January 2023…Knight of Cups…Your heart sings with poetic promise & inspires your spirit with magick & magnificence. Open yourself to heart-centred healing by looking for demonstrations of love & light around you. The Universe reminds you that you are the creator & curator of the enchanting energy that flows through your life. Affirm: “My life is the love affair of my soul” 2nd January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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 Mermaids for our etheric explorations today. These cards are based on the original Rider Waite system but with all the scenes depicted with mermaids in an underwater paradise. It’s evocative of the ancient Lemurians for me & at the moment, I’m working with Lemurian energies a great deal – the current special offer from Mayastar is for a Lemurian-based energy healing system in fact! – a brand new Mayastar Channelling that is the first in a new series of attunements: The Wheel of Light Starseed Activations! I’ve been working more with the Lemurian Goddess, Amara in the development of new light-language meditations that are especially potent for those working with the Lemurian energy healing modalities I teach through Mayastar – and the Lemurian Goddess Amara Attunement includes a Light-Language Mantra & sacred symbol for activation, as well as a 60-minute meditation track that can be used during the attunement process & when working with this energy afterwards. I feel water-based decks will take prime position in 2023 with the upcoming channellings & activations! I’m excited to see how the energetic landscape shifts & unfolds over the coming months. But for today, I’m sure the Tarot of Mermaids 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 Wands. The King of Wands archetype reminds us to take action if we want to enjoy the rewards in the future. Just thinking about the changes you want to make won’t get you to where you want to be. It’s time to make some plans to plot your path to a prosperous future. Choose your 2023 goals with a high heart & high ideals & take a first step by completing the first task on your 2023 to-do list this week! Starting as you mean to go on is a magickal act. If your confidence needs a bit of work, this week’s the perfect time to remind yourself of your past accomplishments so you can align your mindset with new opportunities. Lean into optimism with some positive thinking & affirmations to keep you focused on manifesting a successful stage in your journey. 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 Cups. This is not an inherently negative card but in this position we are looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. The presence of this energy indicates the most powerful impediments we might face this week are likely to come from within. It’s our own self-doubt & unhealed parts of ourselves that could throw a spanner in the works! It’s important to address those negative feelings & the thoughts they can inspire, but at the same time, maintaining some context & balance will avoid you feeling overwhelmed or becoming too fixated on the details of 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 2nd January 2023…The World…Today marks the start of something new! Your energy is rising & your spirit ascends. Visualise yourself a year from now & crystallise your goals. The Universe reminds you that people overestimate what they can achieve in a day, but underestimate what they can achieve in a year. Affirm: “My spirit soars with hope, healing & happiness” Tuesday 3rd January 2023…3 of Cups…Share a smile with someone special today! There’s a lot to celebrate & a bit of fun, frivolity & free-spiritedness is just what you need. Shine brightly & encourage those around you to shine too. The Universe reminds you that no man is a failure who has friends. Affirm: “The limitless light within illuminates my way” Wednesday 4th January 2023…Temperance…Set aside time for quietness & calm. Meditation, yoga or energy healing can create a sacred sanctuary for nourishing your soul. Find your flow by taking a break & enjoying your rest today. Be patient with yourself. The Universe reminds you that miracles happen every day, so keep the dream alive. Affirm: “My life is aligned with powerful possibilities” Thursday 5th January 2023…2 of Swords…It’s time to shift your life into a higher gear by making a decision. Trust your intuition to guide you & don’t procrastinate for fear of making the wrong choice. Some of your greatest insights have come from mistakes! The Universe reminds you that you can trust yourself to learn, change & grow. Affirm: “I trust myself to exceed myself” Friday 6th January 2023…4 of Pentacles…Ground yourself in the reality of your power & promise by trusting & listening to yourself first. Staying in your lane will get you where you want to be today. Respond to your inner authority & instincts. The Universe reminds you that self-sufficiency is the greatest of all wealth. Affirm: “All is working out & working well” Saturday 7th January 2023…8 of Pentacles…Master your magick by taking practical steps to develop your skills. Cultivate belief in your ability to exceed your own expectations & watch yourself blossom with brilliance. The Universe reminds you that your life is a work of art that you create with every choice & action, moment by moment. Affirm: “I prosper & progress my path, day by day by day” Sunday 8th January 2023…2 of Cups…Today’s energetic tides support your healing journey & wash away doubts & dark thoughts. You’re in a deeply loving relationship with the divine. The Universe you reminds that spiritual love connects you with everything & everybody, everywhere. Your soul exists in a state of continuous closeness with your sacred source. Affirm: “I manifest miracles of peace & plenty” This concludes our mystical musings for the week-ahead. -------------------------------------------- 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!

Affirm: “Step by step, I dance towards my dreams” Sunday 5th February 2023…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” 23rd January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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 Guardian of the Night Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck has a very earthy feel with animals depicted throughout. Although it’s not traditional in the depictions of the archetypes, the magickal manifestations of nature perfectly express the meanings of the cards for those familiar with the Rider-Waite system. It’s still winter here & this deck perfectly suits the season! 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 8 of Pentacles. This card reminds us that to achieve greatness we need to embrace commitment, determination & discipline. To become excellent at anything, we need to practice it! This week, great progress can be made by devoting time & energy to developing your skills & mastering your art. Maybe you struggle to dedicate yourself to a project because you feel it’s unimportant or you feel it’s more important to prioritize other things? Perhaps this week, you can appreciate that not all growth is obvious & not all success is visible. Sometimes, the warm glow of accomplishment boosts your confidence & heals your self-esteem. Whatever you put your energy into, you are prospered by 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 Devil. The Devil has positive aspects but in this position, we are concerned with the shadowy side of the archetype. And this week, this card warns us against toxic motivations & negative habits. If you have a tendency to derive your self- worth from other peoples’ approval, you may find that you choose your activities based on what you think other people think. This week, to progress your healing journey, perhaps its time to let go of those old insecurities, do what feels right for you & offer yourself the validation & acceptance you seek. 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 23rd January 2023…The Hermit…Sometimes resting & relaxing is the most productive pursuit. Disconnect from the drama & put your phone on silent for a few hours. Create a sacred sanctuary for yourself by spending time in meditation. The Universe reminds you that you have untapped reservoirs of wisdom in your soul. Affirm: “I am guided by the limitless light within” Tuesday 24th January 2023…2 of Pentacles…Stay centred! Today, temper high energy activities with time for meditation & quiet. By switching things up you maintain your momentum & success follows. The Universe reminds you that freedom & happiness are found in the flexibility & ease with which we navigate change. Affirm: “In flex & flow I flourish & find my force” Wednesday 25th January 2023…Page of Swords…Open your mind to magick by entertaining eclectic & enchanting ideas. Where you place attention, you place your energy. Visualise the future of your dreams to explore your heart’s true desires in your imagination. The Universe reminds you that your destiny is defined by your decisions. Affirm: “Moment by moment, I align with my magnificence” Thursday 26th January 2023…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” Friday 27th January 2023…Strength…Kindness is key today! Find reserves of potency & power by extending unconditional love & acceptance to yourself. Elevate your heart by tuning into your feelings & showing yourself compassion. The Universe reminds you that your instincts & intuition are spiritual gifts that can guide you to authenticity. Affirm: “I accept. I adapt. I ascend. I awaken” Saturday 28th January 2023…Page of Cups…Your intuition is primed so look for sacred numbers & synchronistic symbols today. Spiritual forces support & guide you through dreams, visions & heart-felt hunches. The Universe reminds you that your heart doesn’t lie. Listen to yourself & trust your feelings. Affirm: “I am continuously connected to my divine source” Sunday 29th January 2023…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” 16th January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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 Happy Tarot for our etheric explorations today. This deck follows the traditional Rider-Waite system as far as the symbolism & scenery go. But the archetypes are expressed in pretty pastel colours & with a super cute anime style. They sound like they could be a novelty deck, but their messages are always on point, magickal & meaningful. 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 Cups. This isn’t a negative card, but in this position, we are looking at the shadowed aspect of the archetype which relates to how it could block energy or hinder our progress. The 5 of Cups in shadow can indicate a tendency to focus on the past & relive negative experiences without the intention of healing or moving on from them. Rather, it can be about dwelling on our darkness in such a way that we lose perspective & our thoughts & feelings begin to reflect limitation of the past rather than aligning us with new ways of being. If you have a tendency to ruminate or amp up your anxiety with a constant stream of “what ifs”, this week, try to notice when your thoughts are getting you lost in the weeds, & interrupt yourself by changing your 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 16th January 2023…Ace of Pentacles…Manifest milk & honey miracles by putting your energy into the things that nourish your soul today. Gratitude aligns you with glory & greatness in all areas of your life! The Universe reminds you that creativity is intelligence at play. Affirm: “I create a life that befits my beautiful & bountiful soul” Tuesday 17th January 2023…4 of Cups…You are surrounded by opulence & opportunity, but to awaken to the wonders, you need to shift your focus. The Universe reminds you that life reflects what you carry within. Recognise the treasure of your heart & see the world transmuted into glorious golden goodness around you. Affirm: “I am lifted & loved by the Light” Wednesday 18th January 2023…7 of Cups…Open your mind to magick by entertaining eclectic & enchanting ideas. Visualise the future of your dreams to explore your heart’s true desires. The Universe reminds you to live from your imagination, not your history. All things are possible if you believe all things are possible. Affirm: “I am open to manifesting miracles & magnificence” Thursday 19th January 2023…The Hermit…Follow your inner light by disconnecting from the demands of the outside world today. Attend to your spiritual needs. Move slowly & quietly through your day & allow peace to suffuse your spirit. The Universe reminds you that happiness is an inside job. Affirm: “I align with the peace & perfection of simply being” Friday 20th January 2023…Queen of Pentacles…Appreciate abundance at home & marvel at the magick that surrounds you. Indulge your soul by focusing on what brings you peace & pleasure to find sacred grounding today. The Universe reminds you that you carry your spiritual home within your heart & are always loved. Affirm: “I am at home in my heart” Saturday 21st January 2023…6 of Cups…Give yourself the gift of light-heartedness by daring to delight in your light. Not all lightwork feels like work! Indulge the inner child by doing something for the sheer enjoyment of it today. The Universe invites you to explore your authenticity by playfully perusing your imagination.

Affirm: “I am sacred, special & supported by spiritual love” 9th January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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, dark skies & magickal symbolism make this the perfect deck for exploring the mysterious & mystical! 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 Justice card. The Justice card reminds us to keep a cool head this week. Approach the tasks, chores & challenges of the week with calmness & don’t be drawn into the drama. If you tend to get emotionally entangled with your day, a good way to disconnect is to go to bed early & spend the additional time focusing on releasing & forgiving all the attachments created during the day to allow you to restore your energetic integrity while you sleep. The Justice energy reminds us to create enough mental space that when we need to think fast, we have the capacity to do it. 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, aligning with the Justice energy in order to progress our path means disconnecting from external attachments, judgements & habits in order to free the mind & restore energetic flow. 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 9th January 2023…8 of Pentacles…Channel your energy into developing skills & making things 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” Tuesday 10th January 2023…5 of Wands…Sometimes our inner conflict can help us to work out what we really want. Notice areas of resistance & focus on releasing the past. Let go of limitations that no longer apply to you or your fantastical future! The Universe reminds you that conflict requires your participation. Affirm: “I release the past to make way for my prosperous potential” Wednesday 11th January 2023…The Emperor…When this archetype is awakened 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 12th January 2023…3 of Wands…Your hard work pays off today. 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” Friday 13th January 2023…Strength…The light crystallises around you to form a shield of protection & peace. Your heart expands to embrace your wildness & illuminates the shadows at the edges of your reality. The Universe reminds you that radical self- acceptance means extending kindness, compassion & charity to every part of yourself. Affirm: “My heart embraces my soul; I’m treasured, accepted & whole.” Saturday 14th January 2023…King of Wands…You have the power to transmute your passion into prosperity & progress. Express your sacred soul by taking centre stage in your life today. Your enthusiasm is contagious & inspires those around you. The Universe reminds you that your potential far exceeds the limited ideas you have about yourself. Affirm: “Limitless love flows within me & around me” Sunday 15th January 2023…Knight of Cups…Your heart sings with poetic promise & inspires your spirit with magick & magnificence. Open yourself to heart-centred healing by looking for demonstrations of love & light around you. The Universe reminds you that you are the creator & curator of the enchanting energy that flows through your life. Affirm: “My life is the love affair of my soul” 2nd January 2023…Welcome back to my cosy corner of the internet. I’m Mayastar, 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 Mermaids for our etheric explorations today. These cards are based on the original Rider Waite system but with all the scenes depicted with mermaids in an underwater paradise. It’s evocative of the ancient Lemurians for me & at the moment, I’m working with Lemurian energies a great deal – the current special offer from Mayastar is for a Lemurian-based energy healing system in fact! – a brand new Mayastar Channelling that is the first in a new series of attunements: The Wheel of Light Starseed Activations! I’ve been working more with the Lemurian Goddess, Amara in the development of new light-language meditations that are especially potent for those working with the Lemurian energy healing modalities I teach through Mayastar – and the Lemurian Goddess Amara Attunement includes a Light-Language Mantra & sacred symbol for activation, as well as a 60-minute meditation track that can be used during the attunement process & when working with this energy afterwards. I feel water-based decks will take prime position in 2023 with the upcoming channellings & activations! I’m excited to see how the energetic landscape shifts & unfolds over the coming months. But for today, I’m sure the Tarot of Mermaids 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 Wands. The King of Wands archetype reminds us to take action if we want to enjoy the rewards in the future. Just thinking about the changes you want to make won’t get you to where you want to be. It’s time to make some plans to plot your path to a prosperous future. Choose your 2023 goals with a high heart & high ideals & take a first step by completing the first task on your 2023 to-do list this week! Starting as you mean to go on is a magickal act. If your confidence needs a bit of work, this week’s the perfect time to remind yourself of your past accomplishments so you can align your mindset with new opportunities. Lean into optimism with some positive thinking & affirmations to keep you focused on manifesting a successful stage in your journey. 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 Cups. This is not an inherently negative card but in this position we are looking at the shadow aspect of the archetype. The presence of this energy indicates the most powerful impediments we might face this week are likely to come from within. It’s our own self-doubt & unhealed parts of ourselves that could throw a spanner in the works! It’s important to address those negative feelings & the thoughts they can inspire, but at the same time, maintaining some context & balance will avoid you feeling overwhelmed or becoming too fixated on the details of 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 2nd January 2023…The World…Today marks the start of something new! Your energy is rising & your spirit ascends. Visualise yourself a year from now & crystallise your goals. The Universe reminds you that people overestimate what they can achieve in a day, but underestimate what they can achieve in a year. Affirm: “My spirit soars with hope, healing & happiness” Tuesday 3rd January 2023…3 of Cups…Share a smile with someone special today! There’s a lot to celebrate & a bit of fun, frivolity & free-spiritedness is just what you need. Shine brightly & encourage those around you to shine too. The Universe reminds you that no man is a failure who has friends. Affirm: “The limitless light within illuminates my way” Wednesday 4th January 2023…Temperance…Set aside time for quietness & calm. Meditation, yoga or energy healing can create a sacred sanctuary for nourishing your soul. Find your flow by taking a break & enjoying your rest today. Be patient with yourself. The Universe reminds you that miracles happen every day, so keep the dream alive. Affirm: “My life is aligned with powerful possibilities” Thursday 5th January 2023…2 of Swords…It’s time to shift your life into a higher gear by making a decision. Trust your intuition to guide you & don’t procrastinate for fear of making the wrong choice. Some of your greatest insights have come from mistakes! The Universe reminds you that you can trust yourself to learn, change & grow. Affirm: “I trust myself to exceed myself” Friday 6th January 2023…4 of Pentacles…Ground yourself in the reality of your power & promise by trusting & listening to yourself first. Staying in your lane will get you where you want to be today. Respond to your inner authority & instincts. The Universe reminds you that self-sufficiency is the greatest of all wealth. Affirm: “All is working out & working well” Saturday 7th January 2023…8 of Pentacles…Master your magick by taking practical steps to develop your skills. Cultivate belief in your ability to exceed your own expectations & watch yourself blossom with brilliance. The Universe reminds you that your life is a work of art that you create with every choice & action, moment by moment.

You’re in a deeply loving relationship with the divine. The Universe you reminds that spiritual love connects you with everything & everybody, everywhere. Your soul exists in a state of continuous closeness with your sacred source.
