Pillar of Light + King of Cups
It’s been quite a week so far, and today you’re called to remember the spiritual practices that you’ve been trying out! They are working for you, and you’re finally starting to feel like your emotions are stabilizing and the storm clouds have cleared. You know that nothing can get to you when you consciously engage your form of emotional protection, and remembering that is more than important now than ever: it’s time to get to work towards something that will continue to ensure your happiness, so do what you have to do to find the space you need to sort out your ideas and keep growing!
Today I was drawn to use the Isis Oracle and Mystical Cats Tarot because I’m more aware than ever of my huge pregnant belly, and remembered that early in the pregnancy this deck kept presenting me with “Divine Sun Child!” Speaking of sun children, this summer my big golden cat Ra has been a major outside boy, roaming around for over a week before making an appearance at home again! He came back last night and slept in bed with me, which was such a great feeling. When he first started going out (and not coming back) I had to get over a lot of loss-related anxiety, fearing the worst would come to him! But he’s so happy being allowed to do his own thing, and I’ve learned a lot from my “first baby” about letting go and trusting in the universe to watch out for him.
These cards are super-relevant to me today, as this whole month has been a topsy-turvy roller-coaster between feeling like everything is falling into place and like everything is falling apart! I’ve kind of gotten away from my daily meditative practices (sitting with crystals in the morning, drawing cards for the day, etc), but today I decided it’s time to get back on the horse! I did a breathing meditation with my selenite wand and desert rose, and it felt so good that I gained some cool perspective in the process. I’ve managed to get a bunch of computer work done since, much needed as the baby is due in 7 weeks and I have 5 essays and a bunch of business work to catch up on before then! Engaging my “Pillar of Light” by meditating every day will definitely help me maintain good King of Cups energy to stay balanced and compassionate to get it all done!
