The message from the weekly intuitive update is delivered by the 4 of cups rx and the 8 of cups! I am delivering this in audio form this week, which I actually enjoyed a lot, so future updates may also come as an audio clip!
The world is full of tragic and complex problems, but also full of living breathing joy every single day. These cards invite us to have a holographic perspective of our experiences, so that we can integrate what is necessary into our lives and leave behind anything that is not serving us.
How do you feel about the cups in the tarot? What comes up for you when you pull the 4 and 8 of cups? How are you creating transformative change in your lives? Leave a message in the comments!
new moon in aquarius
Happy new moon loves! I created a little audio walkthrough of today's new moon and the tarot cards of Aquarius and its ruling planet Uranus - The Star and The Fool.
This is my last day hanging out with Sailor the french bulldog. He requires a lot of attention since he's very sensitive and a velcro dog, following your every step. So I recorded this video outside because he needed that sun time. There's some background noise and edits that I made because I needed to pay him some attention several times in the middle of recording. The editing is a little avant-garde in the beginning and end, hope it's pleasant enough!

The Seven of Swords brings a message of focus and keeping your eyes on your own paper. How does this card fit into the message of rest we have been receiving from Divine these last few weeks? How can we remain good caretakers of what we value? Watch the video to learn more about this card and how it relates to healthy boundaries and protection against energy leaks!
full moon in cancer
Blessings on the full moon in Cancer. How have you been feeling, loves? Maybe a little tender? Little might be an understatement for some. Ever since the winter solstice, things have felt different. Everything has been laid bare. There's nowhere left to hide. And with this comes opportunity. An opportunity to emerge renewed. To write a new story. To put your study into practice. How does this invitation feel to you? Does it bring you peace? Or does it stir worry? However you are feeling, this is the time to respond with deep compassion and love. We are being taken on a new journey - it is only reasonable that it would feel deeply uncomfortable. Time feels like it is collapsing. Old stories popping up again facing the new, and us in the now, wondering which direction to choose.
Do not be discouraged if the hurt is still there. Do not give up on yourself or this earth. Be the change you want to see in your life and in this world. Believe that this and every moment is a gift. A gift worthy of your dedication and commitment. Worthy of your love and care.
It can be easy to resist gratitude. To discount its medicine, to commit to the vulnerability of it. Be grateful that you still breathe, that the sun still shines, snow still falls. For the change in your pocket, the water you drink, and the moon that glows above you. Every bit of gratitude counts. Every drop builds an antidote to the cynicism and greed that poisons our world.
There is much work to be done, yes. But there is a lot to be grateful for too.
Call in your protection. Call in your peace and your boundaries. Let this full moon in Cancer nurture you, guide you, awaken the depths within you. Let your tears fall. Let them cleanse and free you. You are safe. You are needed. You are everything you are meant to be.
For the last few weeks, the message from Divine has been clear: NURTURE! SELF-CARE! PATIENCE! Today is a full moon and lunar eclipse in Cancer. What are you doing to prioritize your emotional, physical, and spiritual needs? Now is THE time to put love and compassion for yourself first! Leave a comment below or on the video to share how you have been taking care of yourselves!
SUNSET MEDITATION FOR GAIA
A meditation to celebrate life on Earth. Our hearts are powerful conduits of healing vibrational energies. Tend to yourselves and this world lovingly, friends. Only through peace, compassion, and presence within and without will we bring lasting change to our lives. We are all One - one with all that is and all that breathes. The time for stepping up is now. Here is your gentle invitation.
Happy new year y'all! I wanted to create a post where folks can engage with each other and introduce themselves, so that we can get to know each other as a community! Leave a comment below with your name, pronouns, where you currently reside, astro signs if you're into that sort of thing, and the answer to this prompt: what are you most looking forward to this year. I'll start! My name is Alia, I am use she/her or they/them pronouns (though I am starting to lean more towards they/them these days!). I am currently in Los Angeles for the next few weeks. I'm a Scorpio sun, Taurus moon , Capricorn rising. What I am most looking forward to this year is working with Spirit to create a new life for myself. Starting a new year self-employed and away from the home I've always known for the first time, I am basically at a fresh reset point. Who knows what's next for me!
I'd love to see your contributions. Post an introduction in the comments!
My guides made it clear to me this week that before we step forward, we have to look back! I pulled both The Empress and The Hanged Man in preparation for this week's video, totally unplanned. These cards are important in context because these were the cards for 2019. Let's look back at their energies to help us move forward with our Emperor year in 2020!
