Hi Y'all - I thought it would be nice to start the week off with a nice, three-card pull - LET'S DO THIS!
So, our Past card represents past conditions, influences or energies - it's up to you if this is something you need to focus on and utilize or let go of and release. Today it is the Eight of Wands - a card signifying movement, being busy and making progress - an action card, if you will. So, you can either harness this busy-ass energy and keep up the momentum, or you might need to slow your ass down a bit and take in all the awesome progress you have made so far. You know yourself better than I do, so you do you!
Our Present card is representative of present conditions, influences and energies. Today we have the Eight of Cups, a card which tends to bum people out - but which can provide some valuable insight. This card signifies endings - and being a cup card, relates to our emotions and heartfelt, tender areas. Maybe we are in the throes of grieving a relationship which has ended, or maybe we are in a creative funk...while we grieve things which have ended and search for our true selves, we reminded by the presence of the moon in this deck that there is always a full cycle, endings and beginnings together. There is hope for spiritual growth and fulfillment. Hang in there, sweet pumpkins. We may have to sit with this one for a bit, but it will turn around, it always does.
Our final card represents the Future, or a possible outcome for us. Today we have The Empress, which is awesome because she does not fuck around. This Empress is an embodiment of love for sure, but also of authority - she is The Mother, representative of fertility, devotion and love. This is a super powerful card, reminding us that we have a responsibility to use the power we have with compassion and kindness - and to keep ourselves in balance with self care. It reminds me of that old saying about oxygen masks - that you have to put one on yourself before you can help others on with theirs. It's true! Take care of yourself - really do it and you will get your shit together!
