cards drawn for 17th to 23rd January 2022

Mon 17th – Tue 18th : Foresight

What strikes me first is this week all the cards have a similar colour/colour palette. For me this all about the solar plexus and abundance. Self awareness, self belief and more. Keep that in mind over each card.
Start of the week and with Jan full moon we have tea leaves – a marker of foresight or seeing into the future. A nod back down the ancestral lineage. And interestingly I’ve just submitted an article on my perspective around the ancestors. Taking this card as confirmation that what I’ve written – while it may challenge some people – was the right thing to have shared.
But it also very clearly says “look before you leap”. We still have some rather challenging energies around right now and they may encourage you to jump into something without looking first.
Perhaps not the best of ideas right now. Forewarned is forearmed. Take the time to do your due diligence, read the signs and take time before you make any choices right now.
Even better have a cup of tea/coffee and ruminate on things.
While there are times when jumping without a safety net is possible this isn’t one of them.
You of course have free will so if you do leap without looking be ready to accept the consequences of your own actions.
Can’t say you haven’t be advised.

Wed 19th – Thur 20th : Empowerment

And here we go into the guts of it all. This card very much represents the solar plexus. The seat of your own power, identity and much, much more.
Over time this can be closed down, silenced, depleted and forgotten. It’s time to embrace who you are. Warts and all. To see yourself in all your glory. Accepting the good and the not so good. Understanding you are a blend of it all.
To allow who you are to be seen and heard. It’s time to let yourself unfurl and take up your own space once more.
Let the solar plexus expand outwards. See it radiate in all it’s colour and form.
Self empowerment is a huge step and it can take a lot of courage. But once you start it picks up speed. Taking responsibility for yourself, your actions, beliefs and thoughts is a good place to start. Stand your ground if need be.
When you do this and walk your talk people pay attention and see how THEY can do the same.

Fri 21st – Sun 23rd : You are independent and free

Seeing the theme this week yet? Yet more golden tones in this one which again for me is linked to the solar plexus and your sense of self and self worth.
This is the time to really trust in yourself. You have the abilities to look after yourself. You don’t need someone riding in to save the day – you have had that ability within you all along. It’s time to believe it.
When you start to embrace your own empowerment the trust in your own abilities steps up as well. This is a process I know well and help others with – hence me getting a bit heated as I type.
For some this will be a getting back to basics moment. Stripping away the bells and whistles and asking what is actually important to you. And what is surplus to requirements, or even clutter.
Can you remove some of the distractions and clutter? And I know I’m speaking directly to myself in this also. Go into that space and see what comes up. You are far stronger and more resilient than you give yourself credit for.
Go remember who you are and what you can do.

Extra for the full week : Declare your autonomy

Extra card for the week

And we really underline the energy of the week.
Yet again we are shown self empowerment and stepping up to the plate. Now while the author or the deck has used the word sovereignty I prefer the word autonomy. For me it has a cleaner energy and more exactly describes what most people think the former means. There are other connotations to the former which I find uncomfortable.
Whichever word you feel most comfortable with – use that. Interestingly the full month of Jan is about word choice in the Arse Kick programme. It is not going unnoticed!
This is cementing in the energy of taking responsibility for your choices, decisions, thoughts, beliefs and more. Of being brutally honest with yourself and stopping handing your power over to others. Who would make decisions on your behalf that suit THEM not you.
To take your power back.
Stand in your own shoes and follow the path YOU lay in front of you. Not one which others have picked for you.
Step up and own your life.
It’s a big week with huge potential when you choose to se it as such. But only you can make that choice.
