Good day, soul friends! Hope your week was magical. The Full Moon this week really felt incredible and I am still adjusting to the shift of the Sun from Pisces to Aries. I am shocked at how quickly this month has gone by. I am still in organizing mode and hoping to get everything done by April.
Today's guidance comes from the Ostara Tarot and the Healing Hands Oracle by Sarah Cozzemera of Bear in a Paint Shop.

Did you choose your card, yet?
If you selected the set of Cards 1:
Queen of Pentacles - "At home within oneself and life." You have reached a point where you are at home within yourself and your life. You look at the life you have consciously created, the people within it and work you have dedicated yourself to and realize that it's a true expression of grounded abundance and prosperity. Often you extend your knowledge, generosity and kindness in practical ways - this will see you assisting and supporting others with your family, community and workplace, encouraging them forward while keeping them and yourself grounded. Your life is strong, safe and stable. This is a card for success through practical planning and having a realistic approach to ones goals. This Queen is well aware of her strengths and abilities. She knows that if the necessary hard work is put in then all her dreams and ambitions are attainable. This card denotes a down to earth and practical approach to life and situations. It's critical that you trust yourself. "That which challenges me greatly rewards me immensely." More shifting, more changing, more upheaval… it’s only chaos if you let it confuse and frighten you… if you embrace it it instead becomes the adventure of a lifetime. It’s all about perspective. This is a slow process and there is more to heal than you would like to think. Be patient and love yourself.
If you picked the set of Cards 2:
Two of Wands - "Step outside your zone of comfort." You are making a decision between sticking with what you know, or expanding your horizons and taking a risk. You know that the world has to offer you something ‘bigger’ or more meaningful, yet you are also aware that in order to maximize on this opportunity, you must leave your familiar grounds. Even though you have already invested a lot into your current circumstances, for you to be able to grow and to maximize your potential, it is imperative that you step out into a new world and explore your options. Often, it brings the decision of whether to stay with what you are used to or to go in search of new experiences or a new life. It can suggest that you are bored with your current life and want more. On the outside it may appear you have it all and are very successful but changes have been occurring on the inside for some time. You may have a new plan of action or a burning desire to do something else. You may feel that your fires have been burning low and that you are in dire need of a new lease of life, change of scenery or change of faces. This card takes the spark of inspiration from the previous card and matures it into an actual path forward. "Stop and go, ebb and flow, when the time is right, you will know." Nature moves in a continuously unfolding cycle of seasons, and there is no point at which its motion entirely stops. Nevertheless, we can sense a kind of pause that happens on the cusp of these cyclical changes. It is good to remember that no time of darkness lasts forever, either in the cosmos or in your immediate surroundings.
If you were drawn to the set of Cards 3: Eight of Swords - "Entrapped only by your own thoughts." The energy of this card is one of restriction; yet often the restriction has been created by your own Self, as opposed to an external force. Are you feeling the restrictive pinch of your choices and actions? Or trapped in thinking that there are no alternative or options available to you at this time, given to situation and life pressures? This card is a reminder that it is okay to change your mind. Do your best to cease the circular thoughts of fear and lack. Acknowledge your truth and feelings, embrace where you are at and then open yourself up to possibilities and new waves of thought. Not only will this rejuvenate your energy, but it will also encourage momentum towards making the changes you'd like to make. You are not helpless. Observe those around you - near or far - and watch how they chose to do life. Seek the support and safety of a select few with whom you may bounce your thoughts off. Stop buying into the victim mentality and step into empowerment! "Dive deep and find the treasures you have buried within." Uncover the map to buried treasure and tapped the unlimited potential within you. What you must hone now is your ability to recognize when X marks the spot, because some of these golden opportunities may be obvious, but others may not be so readily apparent. Trust your intuition to light your way now as you enter this truly prosperous phase, where all the long, hard work navigating your inner life is now paying off externally. In all aspects of your life at this time, you have good fortune. Do not forget to enjoy it and share it with others, as treasure shared multiplies like magic.
