Hello my darlings!
Is it just me, or the energy of this week truly feels amazing?
This past weekend, we installed air conditioning units in our apartment, which I am so grateful for, because we had to have industrial fans going all the time to prevent our pets from getting heat strokes. Just like my cats, I utterly hate loud noises, so it was nearly impossible for me to focus on work or anything else. When I got out of bed this morning, it was so cool that I had to put on a sweater! On top of this, I figured out how to raise my desk by a few inches, which makes sitting here to work so much more comfortable. I look forward to launching a few new things on The Empress Within, which you will be hearing about pretty soon!
The tarot cards I drew for this week are The Sun (19), The Fool (0), and Temperance (15). This combination is great considering that we just entered not only a new moon cycle, but a Mercury retrograde as well.
The Sun, this week, is a reminder to focus on the feelings of joy, accomplishment, and victory that come when you’ve had a successful manifestation. Focus on the “YESSS, I DID IT!”, and that rush of adrenaline that comes with it. Generate this energy within you and then transfer it to whatever else you want to bring about. This is a key element to manifestation, and a positive habit to take on with the new moon!
The Fool is all about new beginnings. Considering the present lunar phase, this card is quite relevant today. So this week is a great period to sow new seeds, and undertake new projects. Perhaps starting a new business, undertaking a move, purchasing a new home, starting a family, planning a trip, dating… Whatever you’ve been thinking of, now may be a good time to start it (for instance, I changed the theme of my website – let me know what you think!) And don’t let the fears of the retrograde get to you: if what you build is solid, it will withstand any storm.
Temperance is about creating peace and balance by turning inward. The best way to achieve that is through a meditative practice, but I think it’s important to measure your words and actions at every moment of your life. During this Mercury retrograde, we might be prone to misunderstandings and small incidents, so let’s just take a deep breath and not take certain things personally. The retrograde also means electronics are more likely to malfunctions, we might experiment delays, etc., so it’s important to double-check everything and always allot extra time, especially when traveling. Other than that, don’t let this period affect you – what happens with stars and planets has less influence on our everyday lives than we think.
I hope these cards will speak to you and help you have an amazing week!
Much love to you, and namasté,
PS: Here is the deck that I used for this reading.
PPS: I hope you like the new layout I used for the cards. I was getting tired of using my pink scarf as a background, so when I got ready to take photos earlier today, I decided to switch things up. I think this will allow me to create something more esthetically pleasing while showcasing different objects I have around the house, and I will also be able to use different decks! Let me know what you think – I would love your opinion!
