Woohoo! Hello, 2018! I didn’t think I was going to have this post up today since I woke up under the weather this morning. Go figure, I haven’t been sick for months and months (in fact most of 2017) and I wake up sick on the first day of the year, lol! Maybe the Universe is trying to tell me to slow down.
Anyways, let’s check out what is in store for us this week! I’m using the Next World Tarot for a quick tap into the energy going on this week.
6 OF CUPS
Some memories can leave you feeling like you have known someone for a long time, it’s that bond that has no bounds. This card suggests that reliving the positive aspects (and people) of your past may be apparent this week in how you take the first steps forward. We can learn a lot from dwelling in nostalgia. Life is a spiral, we’ll often reach a point in our life many times over but we are never the same person twice. You may feel like you’ve hit the same wall, again and again, but trust that you haven’t. You’ve grown since the last time you were at this wall. Try to find the bridge between the past and present that can help you better prepare for what is to come.
5 of COINS
Not exactly the card I would like to show up at the beginning of the year but it can be a truth we all may face. With the holidays over and our not-so-frugal spending, it’s time to tighten up the reigns a bit on our cold hard cash. We can’t be on holiday 24/7… unless your Beyonce or someone, right? The 5 of Coins is letting us know that what we are facing is only temporary this week and it will pass. Watch your spending and count your pennies a little more than usual, perhaps even try to give yourself a buffer if you can. Most of all, just slow down a bit when it comes to purchases and whipping your wallet out… I wish I pulled these cards before I went on an Etsy splurge earlier today, haha! I will say, I have zero regrets on what I bought!
While typing this, I’m sitting under my window in the presence of a Full Moon in Cancer. I feel so much like this person in the card as I get ready to prepare a full moon ritual and tarot reading in the next few hours (which I will recap on the blog tomorrow). The Moon is here to remind us to listen to our deeper truths this week, pay close attention to what is pulling at us and luring us in. TRUST YOUR INTUITION! Take a moment this week to step outside and gaze up at La Luna, soak in all her luminescent rays and set your intentions this week. The Moon is often a card of deep illusion and uncertainty, but I feel that we can actually see more clearly if we just let her guide us day to day.
Looking at these cards as a whole, it’s clear that while we may be uncertain about what may lie ahead in the days to come, we can bring our attention to what gives us the most insight and feeling of warmth that is our memories. Lean hard on what boosts your spirits if you are struggling this week and use the moon in the next full days to help release what is holding you back. I normally do release work a few days after the Full Moon (more so around the last quarter), so use this time to set intentions on what you wish to let go of in your life. The Moon is in the cards this week, she is calling us to trust her.
