Although you may not feel it at this very moment - there is an energy that is building - one that if you allow it to come through will provide comfort through confidence.
With the Full Moon yesterday - I am liking these cards this morning!
The crow on its way to the usual daytime hang out spotted a good place to rest and being it was in no rush to spend yet another day sitting on the same old telephone wire it took the opportunity to try something different. What it discovered was a path to a new city, one that promised a fresh start and new beginnings.
The Ace of Wands comes through this morning because of an opportunity you took to break away from a regular routine - this act led to something to come into your focus. It's funny you never know what it may be or where it may lead but sometimes random acts seem to open doors and magical events sort of fall into place.
If you have been spending too much time doing the same old routine over and over - although in the past position - this may be a nice reminder to break things up and to try new experiences because when you do it will lead to a transformation and finding a new place of peace in your life - one that will give you the courage to expand even further.
As a foundation - the Ace of Wands is a reminder that within you is the strength to get out of your comfort zone and make bold moves. You have the ability to clue in to the signs around you bringing confidence to your decisions.
The crow sits on a wolf's head - with time and much effort is has learned how to master his wild side. The butterfly and the cherry blossoms above indicates that the crow has grown and changed significantly and as a result of letting go of its ego and because of this new opportunities are blossoming. This is a time of comfort and indulging in the riches life has to offer. The sun is high and the day is long - giving this bird plenty of time to relax.
The Nine of Pentacles brings an energy of harmony and feeling at one with your surroundings - this is a time for a little pampering. Whether it be simply playing hooky to so that you can go to the movies in the afternoon or getting that new jacket you have been eyeing in a shop window - it is time to "Treat yo' self!"
But in all seriousness - when you do little things that may seem extravagant or frivolous - it sends the message out to the Universe that you are comfortable receiving and that you know that there is more out there available for you - life is abundant. This isn't about going out and buying a yacht (or maybe it is if that is your idea of an easy splurge...)
The message the Nine of Pentacles brings today is to allow that feeling of being comfortable to sink in - avoid feelings of lack or sending out signals that you are not worthy - because you are - everyone deserves one day of splurging on something fun.
The crow stands on the lion's snout not because it bullied it into submission - there is an equal respect between them - they work together to create change.
Supporting you during this time is Strength - this is the energy of confidently going about your day knowing that everything will work out just as it should. You are the one in control. Obstacles are not deal-breakers or road stoppers - no not to you during this time they are easily managed hiccups that provide valuable information that will, in the end, help you go further.
The energy that is swirling around is that of drive and determination - you are focused on a goal and there is no stopping you.
When you take a chance on something new - and follow the signs or synchronicities that guide you that is when you will fall into alignment with your purpose and opportunities will unfold. Be confident and know that you have the inner strength to tame the "crazy-maker" or wild side of you that reacts first and operates from a place of fear. By taking some time for yourself - truly indulge in something that makes you happy (this does not include taking the kids to the family fun center) - do something for yourself. I know as a mom - I feel guilty doing anything just for me and I know that I am not alone here. Even if it is taking a walk by yourself or taking a bath with a do not disturb sign on the door - use this reading as a permission slip to do something just for you this week - the energy that comes from this small act can spark big changes.
"The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can." ~Neil Gaiman
