Did you choose your card, yet?
If you selected the set of Cards 1:
7 - It's time to tap into your highest self. The number seven is associated with harmony and balance created through knowing and understanding that our connection to source is real.
The number Seven deals with energies beyond our control but within our reach. Related to the crown chakra, it is a spiritually divine number full of wisdom and power. It suggest we look within to find the answers we seek. Our being is a combination of thoughts and actions; however, it is the space in between thought and action that we find the answers.
Are you ready to look within and be your own guru?
Awake - Awakening is about taking full responsibility. It is about practicing mindfulness and honesty, with yourself and with others. Awakening demands that we kick ourselves out of autopilot and stop compromising our dreams. It means pissing some people off as we do what we want to do, instead of what they would have us do. It means boldly taking action. Unapologetically stepping onto your life path and living your life to the fullest.
Awakening begins with noticing more of what you normally ignore. The process of denial happens so quickly that it is difficult to interrupt at first. The mind would have you believe that awakening comes from what you know, but this is not a journey through the mind. When feelings of doubt and distrust surface, acknowledge them. See if they are true insights or past limitations exposing themselves for transformation.
Be willing to go through everything that keeps you from this awareness.
"You will be too much for some people, those aren't your people."
A healthy relationship (of any type, not just romantic) is not degrading, it is not limiting, it is not stifling. It allows you to be yourself without judgments, without fear of thinking, “Oh my gosh, what will they say? Will they like this? Did I do that okay? Am I being too much?” A healthy relationship embraces ALL of you, allows you to be yourself without that fear, allows you to be just as you are, flaws and all. If you find yourself feeling bad when around certain people, maybe it’s time to cut those people out of your life, because they are definitely not your people!
If you were drawn to the set of Cards 2:
Sagittarius - Humorous and generous, Sagittarius is a dreamy and giving sign. Often trying to extend time and energy, this sign runs out of patience and lacks attention to detail. You’re just about ready to hit your mark. The sign of Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter and is a mutable (easy going) fire sign. The ancient symbol for Sagittarius is a half-man, half-horse, known as the centaur, a creature trained in the art of archery who always manages to hit his target no matter how far he roams.
When the Sagittarius card turns up in a reading, freedom at the current time is essential. You will feel the need to fight against restrictions of any kind and want everything out in the open. You want to know where you stand. Sagittarius (the traveler who loves freedom and hates to feel trapped) and the Planet Jupiter (expansion and good luck). Jupiter is currently in it's home sign of Sagittarius, so we are being shown where we are stuck and given a redo in order to really address this energy. You will start to see more signs and more possibilities coming to light for you. Trust what you know and feel. You are not letting everything drive you because you have found your peaceful place within you and you are taking care of yourself and thinking things through before you take the leap of faith.
Visible - Signs of spiritual growth are subtle at first and yet, eventually, evidence of our inner work becomes so obvious that our world is transformed. Before the transformation bears fruit, however, we must labor with great trust when we have no sense of our growth happening. We may indeed worry that we are deluding ourselves about any progress being made at all. It is during those times when we are yet to see evidence of our growth in the physical world, that we can feel most uncertain, most tested - yet we must, we simply must, choose trust and faith, no matter what. This oracle comes to you with a special message. You are an inspiration. You are helping those around you and even many of whom you are unaware. You are doing this because this is your path, this is your way, this is your gift - to live a life dedicated to the growth of consciousness and, through that dedication, inspire others to receive the loving consciousness of the Great Beloved that can benefit them so greatly, no matter what their situation or circumstances. You are not doing this through any effort or will. Just as the sun breaks through darkness with its own light, shining light with its presence by simply being, so too does your inner sun, your soul. You don’t have to understand this or do anything with the information given, although you may find it of comfort or even be shocked by it, pleasantly perhaps. It is just an acknowledgment of who and what you are, given freely because you are ready to receive such an acknowledgment. You are visible not just to your guides, but also to others. Keep shining bright, and help others find your light!
"Be patient things are happening behind the scenes that can't be seen on the surface." Patience, patience, patience! Patience is so hard. Especially when someone as driven as you has to be patient! But, if we are not patient, we can end up creating something before it’s ready and then not having the success we were meant to have if we would have just been patient and waited. You cannot do things alone. Others are part of your divine plan and things are falling into place so that you will reach your goal. Allow divine timing to work and everything will work out when it is supposed to work out.
If you chose the set of Cards 3:
Neptune - Known as the "I dream" planet, Neptune is full of inspiration and exploration. Let your imagination run as deep as the blue sea, but do be mindful of the depths your soul can and will go. This planet brings with it mystery and confusion if your mind isn't right. Neptune shows us where we are vulnerable and also where we want to escape to. There are opposites in all higher things. There may be situations that come up where things are not very clear. Things don't always make sense, but with inspired vision and some thinking, can bring on a new awareness from the higher self.
On the 21st, Neptune stations retrograde where it will remain until November. This yearly station casts a veil over our practical affairs. There can be a temporary loss of inspiration as we realign our dreams and wishes with what’s inside. It suggests a period of taking in, receptiveness, and some indecisiveness. It can be a time of feeling in limbo, but it might also be a time of great inner discovery.
Do not get lost at sea, dreaming for others, or for your ego. Step into your soul self and bring your dreams and visions to life authentically.
Creative - This card understands both sides of self-expression. In the first stage we get our inner vision, feelings, and creative impulse out into the world through our art, whatever that is. Then our expressions are reflected back to us from the mirror of other people’s perceptions, and we discover what our art awakens in them. First and most important for many of us, we learn, grow, and lead more satisfying lives if we have ways of expressing our inner world. Such expressions can be a way of helping ourselves better understand our feelings and experiences. Or they can be a way of getting pain out where we can look at it and let it begin to heal. Creative expression is a method of exploring our own truth, bringing it into the light so we can see it more clearly , and maintaining sanity. The key words here are explore, experiment, and express. Creative expression is a way of sharing and letting others see more of our true selves. It is a way that we can reach out from this illusion of separation and reaffirm our essential connections with one another. When we share a dance, a painting, or a poem with others, we do so with the hope that they will see something of what we have put into it and that their experience will echo ours in some way. But if we have done well, we will be able to add something to their experience. Anything is possible when you put your mind to it… add your heart and Soul and magic is inevitable. Do not hold back!
"I'm too magical for your bullshit."
As we open up, we may wish to open those around us to what we are experiencing. Unfortunately, this cannot really be done. We cannot drag someone up to our vibrational frequency, no matter how good willed we are, or how we wish to work only for their highest good. People can only meet us where they are at at that particular moment in time. We may understand things faster, we may experience shifts in perception or perspective that they have not yet undergone. But we cannot experience these for anyone else, no matter how much it would benefit them. You can lead a horse to water, but you simply cannot and should not try to force them to drink.
Stay in your magic!
