Mon 19th – Tue 20th : Nectar of life
The start of the week is to remember the sweetness of life. The things that bring you joy – as for many this has been pushed down the queue in importance.
But it IS important. It’s what brings the balance in – especially this year.
In the Northern hemisphere we are in autumn which is all about the abundance of the harvest – the fruits of the labour through the year. Setting larders, getting ready for the slow down of winter.
In the Southern hemisphere it’s spring – the newness of life, the growth and speeding up as you look towards summer. Find the spring in your step (apologies for the pun), as you start to get more daylight and more life around you.
And for some it’s the pay off of the hard work you’ve done. So slow down, enjoy the simple things and find your joy once more.
For some others this may be a nod towards looking after the wildlife around you – be it placing feed out for the birds, planting specific flowers for the insects , picking up litter that you see when out and about …….all these little things help remind us of the deeper connection at play.
Wed 21st – Thur 22nd : The golden phoenix
Now this is a card that pops up routinely and it’s not lost on me that its popped up while we are in a retrograde phase. It’s simply an opportunity to sense check what you thought you had worked through.
Be it another strand or another layer. It may even be a test to see if your reaction has changed.
Oddly when this card popped up I was very aware of Griffin energy as well as phoenix – so a nod towards shifters , and recognising not all is as it seems on paper or at face value.
You may find what is coming back to you has changed enough that you are happy to welcome it back in. If thats the case then great – but again a caution – sense check it first.
This card is all about transformation – either the ending of a cycle or the start of a new one. You will know which it is for you.
Fri 23rd – Sun 25th : Doves
Some of you may have spotted that each of this weeks cards have winged messengers – the bee, the Phoenix and the Dove.
For me (maybe not everyone) this is a nod to starting to see the bigger picture from a higher perspective – and by that I mean a birds eye view.
When we remove ourselves from the narrow gaze we can give ourselves we start to see other details that were lost to us.
Now at first glance this card is a riot of colour and may jar the eye somewhat. But when you focus outwards you can see the two doves and the sense of movement.
This is echoing the phoenix energy and reminding us that the new comes from the old. As one cycle ends another begins.
Life is a cycle, change is inevitable and when you embrace the flow (where you can) you may end up not where you expected but where you need to be.
Doves are by nature peaceful and gentle birds – allow that energy in or at least make space for it.
The help you need is there, you can ask for it. But do your best not to demand it – that’s an energy you don’t want to be playing with right now, or ever.
Start of the week – an opportunity to slow down and appreciate the small things that bring you happiness. This is an abundant energy so sit with it, be in the flow and just BE. If you feel guided to something for your local wildlife then do it – it’s all part of the connection.
Mid week – a time to reflect on what is popping up for you. Especially if you thought it had been dealt with. Have you missed some small detail? Is it a chance to lift another layer or two? Or is it safe to bring it back into your life/energy/awareness? Sense check it all and you will get the gut reaction/confirmation you need to translate it all.
End of the week – allow space in your life for peace and calmness. Accept that all things have a cycle – some end to allow new ones to begin. See the flow and if you struggle a little look at the seasons and how they flow from one to the next. Nature can and will guide you if you let her .
