We are returning to the wisdom of the Rider-Waite-Smith deck this week. Take a moment, get clear on your intention or inquiry, and pick a card! Your mirror awaits after the jump...
Death is more than an ending. it allows us to make room for the new. the invitation here is to settle in. to let our burdens be lifted. to be cradled by the void. when we face our grief head on, it doesn’t have to be a battle. it can be gentle. so take a moment to welcome change and practice gratitude for its lessons. Spirit is telling you here that you are not alone. allow yourself to be held.
4 of cups
there is always something new to learn. a new lens through which to feel into what you think you already know. maybe the more important part of your learning journey in this moment is to sit with the feelings that come up for you as you move through it. maybe you are pushing away a part of you that needs to come forward. or maybe Spirit just needs your presence so they can reach you. whatever it is, take the time to sit with yourself. the messy emotional bits that don’t like to fall into place. they don’t have to. just let them stand on their own.
Ace of wands
varying visions came up with this card: someone coughing out a bunch of thick dark smoke, like a sputtering, overheated engine; someone feeling afraid to yield their creativity, cautiously beholding this wand; and someone feeling into their passion and applying it to the cause and interest of their choice with confidence and purpose. when you feel that you are lost, remember your authority. burnout is real. what is also real is your infinite power, your infinite wisdom, your infinite connection. you are made for these times. you were born for them. so take care, yes, but also take action.
