This week's reading: Tower, Be Present and Sapphire.
THE TOWER:THE WITCHES TAROT BY ELLEN CANNON REED AND MARTIN CANNON.
What a great card/message to come up right now, we've just come out of the Mercury Retrograde, the full moon has come and gone and the new moon arrives this coming Saturday. I love seeing the tower in a reading though the image itself can be somewhat startling. The tower card represents a time to start new. We are tearing down anything that doesn't serve us, or perhaps it is being torn down for us (possibly with some resistance or fears coming up.) One way or another, the building is burning to the ground, because it is time to start over.
This card always brings up the energy/essence of the mythical bird the Phoenix. Like the Phoenix you will be reborn from the ashes of what is burned away right now. Tabula Rasa, it's your clean slate, a fresh start.
Fear not, and let go of resistance, because change is inevitable and though we sometimes fight it, we will lose the fight in the end. Learning to go with the flow will make the change and transition much easier on you.
BE PRESENT: CRAZY SEXY LOVE NOTES BY KRIS CARR
Have you experienced the bliss that is being fully present in the moment? It's almost as if time stops.
Meditation is a great tool for being present, and there are many ways to meditate. There are guided meditations which can be really helpful for those new to meditating. You can do them alone or in group settings, in person or virtually. I have been meditating for over 15 years and I still enjoy and find guided meditations really useful.
I really enjoy moving meditation like taking a quiet walk in nature, dancing or yoga. Just know it doesn't have to look a certain way, do what works for you and incorporate the practice into your daily life.
When you're present, intuition speaks louder and more clearly to you. Confusion lifts and you are left with honesty, authentic truth.
I first experienced the power of actually being “a human being, not a human doing” when I was on the island of Kauai on a family vacation. I had already been meditating for many years, but that was the first time that I found myself being truly present without meditation and experienced the peace, bliss and relaxation of being present. (That trip was life-changing and is part of the reason I later moved to Florida with my beloved husband Hiram.)
OUR COLOR INSPIRATION & MAGIC THIS WEEK: sapphire! FROM THE COLOR MAGE ORACLE BY BERNARD CHARLES
Sapphire: regenerate community
Like the beautiful stone, precious gem, this rich blue color energy reminds us to regenerate community. Are you doing too much on your own lately? Feeling like a one person show with an already too full plate that keeps getting fuller and fuller by the moment, yet there are no more hours in the day. I've been there. It's been a work in progress in my life to learn how to change course, enlist help from others, and delegate instead of feeling I have to do it on my own.
It's time to regenerate your community, get out and build more genuine connections either in person, or online. If you need help, now is the time to ask for it and let others show up for you.
Remember you don't have to do everything on your own. You are not alone.
Intuitively this color is actually reminding me of social media. Both Facebook and Twitter use the color blue in their logos. Using the color blue in a logo is a good thing, according to this article on Entrepreneur.com it says the color blue is “secure, calm, honest strong, caring, trustworthy.”
I love the way that feels. As you focus on community this week keep in mind those feelings, “secure, calm, honest, strong, caring and trustworthy.” These are exactly the kinds of feelings you want to have with your friends, family and community. There are so many great ways you can build community this week. You can reach out to others, step outside your comfort zone. Honor yourself and your boundaries and seek genuine, loving connection.
Beautiful sapphire blue, where are you?
Eat some form of blueberries, blue on the outside like this, though more of a purple on the inside. I have a huge container of frozen blueberries in my fridge right now and I love putting them in my green smoothies. Bodies of water can appear deep blue like this. Are you able to be near some deep, dark blue water? Do you have jewelry, a crystal, an item of clothing you can wear? How can you incorporate this color into your life this week?
May this reading serve you in the weeks ahead.
