Ah, nothing like a full moon during a water sign sun transit and Mercury retrograde, eh? But good news! Mercury has stationed direct and we have an extra hour of daylight. Spring is in the air and change is coming. Let's check out the pick a card answers for this week!
7 of pentacles
the hardest part of change can be accepting divine timing. learning how to be present with the gifts you already have and the growth you are cultivating. the seven of pentacles asks us to be patient, to be good caretakers our investments. nourishment is coming, so you can release control and whatever narratives you may have about what growth is supposed to look like. this card brings to mind the Thubten Chodron quote, “When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time.” patience, mindfulness, and discipline are key here.
page of wands
fire and earth combined creates lava. slow-moving molten rock, creating new ground as it moves along the earth’s surface. the page (earth) of wands (fire) embodies this energy. do not be afraid to break new ground, to forge new paths. trust yourself with your fire, and that you are creating opportunities. let this fresh earth support all of your endeavors and passions. may they be lasting, may they be stabilizing, may they be freeing.
the sun brings clarity and illumination of all things. it is a ceaseless producer of energy and power. this card signals the alighting of the dark places. sometimes this light can feel like too much to bear. if you have often chosen silence over action, or if speaking up has caused blowback, you may be afraid to embody this frequency. but let yourself be open to this power, let it work through you and you will find the courage you seek has been right with you all along. get to know it, as it knows and loves you.
