What a lovely spread this morning as the energy that is building is one of transformation and growth as a result of appreciating and using all the resources at your disposal to create the life you desire.
The strong regal female crow stands on a heavy stone throne. She feels secure in her position as the warm light casts a rosy glow over the land - in this light the world is less harsh and more at peace. The crow's power comes from her strong connection to all that is within her environment. She is a generous mother figure who ensures that the needs of all those within her command are provided without question or criticism.
With the Queen of Pentacles creating the foundation for today's reading the path to being able to create the situation you desire comes from acknowledging all the resources you have available to you and using them without feelings of lack or scarcity. The Energy of the Queen of Pentacles brings is like a warm hug - one that offers the confidence to go after an idea without worrying about financial matters - it is the energy that removes the fear of financial distress and allows for creative visions to manifest.
This may have been a time when you remained in your day job or allowed other financial resources to take on the burden of managing the day to day responsibilities - without worrying about how to pay bills, or buy supplies etc - you were able to go after an idea that may have been put on the back burner otherwise.
The powerful and agile crow flies over the land spreading life with a flick of the wing and a tilt of the beak. She is a creator, a bringer of life and heals that which is broken. With her iridescent feathers glistening in the bright sky she brings hope to restores faith - she is a ruler who is admired for her ability to connect with all those she encounters.
The energy at the center of today's reading is the Empress bringing the message that your current situation will benefit from feeling grounded and secure in your place in this world. This is an energy of self-love and acceptance - of being able to call upon your strengths and recognize your weaknesses are not here to hold you back but rather to help you identify areas that need to be healed from within. The Empress brings a compassionate energy one that fosters growth and provides resilience in the face of adversity.
The Empress brings to your current situation pure goddess energy and if you are in a position where your life is going well - she is here to add more beauty to your life as she expands the abundance you are enjoying. Because of this fortuitous position, when you recognize all that is at your disposal and feel gratitude you will discover plenty of opportunities to pass the love forward as the Empress will work through you and her energy will strengthen.
If you are feeling disjointed or if life just threw you a curve ball - the Empress is a master creator she has the energy to turn fallen branches from a storm into a magnificent house. The energy she brings will help you call forward your best self - the part of you who faces a disappointment or a challenge with determination. When the Empress is at work obstacles become opportunities to gain strength and a way to course correct as a result of straying from your desire or the thing that makes you feel most connected.
With the Queen of Pentacles and the Empress working together, there is potential to create the life you wish - the resources are all there! When you embrace your inner-goddess and see the abundance all around there a shift will occur - one that will move you to a new place in your life.
The crow calls out for all those who have let go of the past, who have accepted themselves as whole - deserving beings to rise up and shed the beliefs that have once held them back in order to move into a better place one that comes from a complete understanding and compassion.
With Judgement supporting the Queen and the Empress the message this card brings is when you let go of the fear of lack - when you accept that you are deserving of a life full of abundance and loving energy feeling of doubt and anxiety that once held you back will be over-powered and fade within the bright radiating warmth that comes from feeling at peace with your life. You will move forward and your life will transform for the better.
"We are born believing. A man bears beliefs as a tree bears apples." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
