Can anyone else believe it’s almost June?! May flew by, but this past week has been a flurry of activity, as inspiration struck and we all began thinking about what’s next and what to start doing to get to where we want to be. This week’s theme card is XIV – Temperance reversed, suggesting that we’ll have to swim hard to keep our heads above water, as something we thought we’d finished with will rear its head again and need to be addressed before we’re able to fully enjoy the place of calm we had a taste of last week, and which we’ll fully be able to feel again before this week is through! Even when it’s hard, keep giving of yourself, trying your hardest to understand where the people you interact with are coming from. In doing so, there’s a good chance they’ll return the kindness, or at the very least be inspired to pass it on somewhere else down the line. Focus on the good things to come, grasping any threads of positivity you can find, as the middle of the week will require a considerable amount of energy to stay afloat, but you can do it — the feeling this past week that you were “charging up” for something was right on, and you’re ready for whatever comes your way!
Monday, May 29: 9 of Wands
Yes, you’ve come through some trying times, but as a result you’ve been able to build up some really great defenses for the future! That is to say, you have a much better sense of how to protect what is important to you, be that people, ideas, a project or business — whatever it is, it’s dear to you and it’s always on your mind. It inspires you to create miracles, and this Monday finds you thinking hard about what you can do next to really feel like everything is “in place” in that department — you know what’s holding you back from feeling truly secure here, and today will benefit from a pause to reflect and make some decisions that will allow you to take on more work in this arena when it comes, and it’s coming soon!
Tuesday, May 30: XVII – The Star
That reflecting you did yesterday leads to something being illuminated today that fills you with hope, and the knowledge that the help you need is within reach. You’re filled with a divine Knowing that everything is going to be okay: remember this feeling, savour it, and think back to it as a fuelling memory when things “get darker before the dawn,” if you know what I mean! Finding light in the darkness usually comes with a bit of a stumble as our eyes adjust after being blinded momentarily with inspiration. When you’re struck with creativity today, make the most of it, and know that this is an idea that will take you far in the weeks to come!
Wednesday, May 31: 10 of Pentacles reversed
Here comes the “stumble” referred to after being greeted by The Star! I’m feeling that today a family interaction will lead to a bit of backtracking, as something throws you off a bit. Your best bet will be to retreat peacefully and recenter on your own, surrounding yourself with things that make you happy and doing some more of the recharging that helped so much last week. This isn’t the end of the story when it comes to whoever throws you off (or the person who retreats, if it’s you doing the “throwing!”), so whatever comes up, lay low for awhile and focus on self-care. Remember that things are feeling much more stable than they have in what feels like ages, and that won’t be changed by one little flip-flop!
Thursday, June 1: 7 of Cups
Today may find you feeling a bit lost in the clouds! All that’s been happening is swirling in your mind, along with all the possibilities you’ve been dreaming up, along with all that other people have been presenting you with — are you saying “make it stop?!” If you’re feeling overwhelmed, know that you still have lots of time to smooth things out in order to achieve your desired results: you don’t have to choose right now! Allow the thoughts coursing through your mind to flow as they will, noticing them, seeing them, but not letting them knock you down. Hang in there, when the time comes, you will make the right choice!
Friday, June 2: 5 of Cups
Oops, did all that thinking yesterday land you focusing on what you’ve been working at letting go of? That’s okay, but remember not to dwell on it — new opportunities to move forward are doubling, and you’ll need your hands free to grasp them when they pop up. If you find yourself needing to duvet-away today, do, but again, let it be an act of self-care: decide that you’re doing it to feel better, not to wallow in your own past mistakes. Don’t keep your head covered for too long! You’re far away from the root of those old troubles, so take the time you need and get ready — tomorrow will truly feel like a New Day!
Saturday, June 3: King of Pentacles
Saturday is finally here, and when you wake up, everything will feel glistening and like it’s back where it’s supposed to be. You’re feeling back in control, ready to make new connections and start working again at actively building the future you know you want. Your ambition will take you far today, as personal power courses through you and you find yourself able to trust in your finances and what you have to keep you above ground for the forseeable future. You’ve managed to close the door on what was trying to drag you back into — well, what felt like Hell!! — earlier this week, but you did what you had to do to ground yourself, and today finds you reaping the rewards.
Sunday, June 4: 3 of Cups
Yesterday’s productivity makes way for a day of relaxation, connection, and fun with people you love to be around! There’s a warm, fuzzy glow about, and you’re feeling positively celebratory! An incredible transformation occurs, one which changes your life on some level: a seed planted long ago has grown, ripened, and is ready to start a wonderful new story in the midst of an atmosphere of friendliness and unselfconsciousness. Raise your glass high today, you’ve earned this happiness and you know it, which makes it all the sweeter. The abundance you’re feeling will continue to multiply. Enjoy it, enjoy it, enjoy it!
This week, our Higher Selves throw us a challenge: an old pattern that we’d been battling and thought we’d beaten returns. This is a test, and we have more time than we think to pass it, so when presented with prickliness and situations we’d rather not be in, it’s up to us to walk away. Preserve what you’ve chosen to carry forward and continue to choose to leave the rest behind! Slowly but surely, those old voices will fall back. Give that crease in your forehead a rub to remind yourself to relax, breathe, and turn to the future: the fog will part on sunny days, and things are steadily getting to a place where what’s left of your current struggle is just a distant memory ❤
This week will be rife with opportunities to examine our personal structures: where we feel we have authority, how we use our power and energy, what works for us, why, and with who. When we feel ourselves starting to lose our cool, that’s when we most need to call in the reserves of hope we remembered to savour so deeply when they were happening! Trust in the strong foundations you’ve been solidifying lately to hold through any storms this week, knowing that by the end of it you’ll be feeling warm, proud, and connected. You’re creating amazing things, so keep thinking and acting from your true heart and trust that the best is coming to you — it really is!!
Have a great week!! <3<3
