Hello again beautiful, radiant soul. Welcome back! For those who celebrate the holiday I hope you had a Happy Easter! Yesterday was also my only son's 14th birthday. We started the celebration early as my son wanted a family game night at home with pizza Saturday.
I had asked him why he didn't have plans with his friends this weekend and he said he wanted a family game day and to order pizza with Hiram (my husband) and I. I am so touched he wanted to spend his birthday with us instead of with his friends. He's been so independent for so long, it means a lot to know he still wants to be with us at times like this.
This past week was an intense one with the full moon and lunar eclipse on Wednesday. Things we had forgotten, or thought we'd moved past or healed from our past may have re-surfaced, especially in regards to family and relationships.
How are you doing now that those energies are passing through? Are you feeling more at peace?
This week's reading includes cards from 3 different beautiful decks with the messages from the cards as well as my intuitive insights to offer you guidance and support for the week ahead.
Our color inspiration & magic this week: Cornflower from The Color Mage Oracle by Bernard Charles
Life has been throwing a lot our way lately. Wounds we thought were healed may still need some attention. Stand strong, sturdy to whatever comes your way. You have the strength and the tenacity to handle it. This is so comforting to me as I've taken on some DIY home-improvement projects that have turned out to be much more difficult and time-consuming than I could have hoped!
I slept Saturday night surrounded in a blanket that has this shade of blue on it before drawing this card for us on Sunday morning. I feel like it's helping me to remember I have what it takes to finish this project even though I'm so exhausted and want to quit! (The project is painting my white front door, red, and painting the handle and lock oil rubbed bronze.) It has not been a super smooth process, (I've never painted an exterior door before) and when I committed, I committed because we have a duplex. We have to paint the door next door as well, or the home will look imbalanced with one white door and one red door. Aye yaye yaye! What was I thinking? No matter, Cornflower blue reminds me I got this and so do you love. Whatever comes your way this week, you've got what it takes to face it. Stand strong.
The 4 of Wands from The Wild Unknown Tarot Deck by Kim Krans
All the hard work is paying off! Something you've been working on is finally finished. It's time to celebrate! (Please let this be my door project?! I'll let you know...) I believe that celebration is a form of gratitude and my dear you absolutely deserve to do some celebrating!
All this hard work, dedication and fierce tenacity calls for some celebration of equal measure. What do you love to do to celebrate? It doesn't have to cost a lot of money to be meaningful, but make sure you make it mean something special to you. Carve out the time and make this non-negotiable.
You deserve it, and you are worth it. I just love that little center of blue on the card, how fitting and it goes so nicely with our Cornflower Color Mage Oracle card!
You Did It & You Can't Please Everyone from Kris Carr's Crazy Sexy Love Notes
You did it:
Appropriate right?! You did it! Yes you did. Be proud of yourself and like the 4 of Wands reminds us, celebrate! I think my form of celebration is likely going to be some much needed rest. All these intense energies and the added release of letting go, and then taking on big home improvement projects has worn me out. I look forward to saying I did it, when it's done, celebrating the completion and giving myself time to rest and recover.
You Can't Please Everyone:
So very true. You can't please everyone, and you know what? You'll lose yourself and burn out if you try. Don't bother! At the end of the day the only person you need to please is yourself. When you are true to you, and you shine your beautiful light into this world, you give the rest of us permission to do the same. Keep shining! We need you! Dimming your light to fit in, denies yourself an authentic life and denies the world the gift that is YOU.
I'd love to hear from you. Did you have a break through or gain any insights from this reading? Did it resonate with you? Let me know.
Love, light & magic
