Even though I am on a blog tour, I cannot disregard my regular posts. So, your inbox will receive two from me today.
Today’s meditation I found to be particularly relaxing. I hope you enjoy it too.
And now for the Tarot Reading for the week.
The Page of Cups suggests a new idea or opportunity has come to you out of the blue. Your creative energy is flowing, and now the question is how you will express it. It invites you to have an open and curious mind. Be open to anything – including a fish popping its head out of a cup! It is with a curious mind that you will discover new aspects of life and yourself. Open your mind to all possibilities, especially those of a creative or intuitive nature, you will be pleasantly surprised. This card often appears when you are being called to trust your intuition and be open to the multitude of intuitive messages coming your way.
The stern and regal Emperor comes from the Major Arcana. The Emperor represents a powerful leader who demands respect and authority. Status, power, and recognition are essential to you, and you are most comfortable in a leadership role where you can command and direct others. As a leader, you rule with a firm but fair hand. You have a clear vision of what you want to create, and you organize those around you to manifest your goal. You listen to the advice of others, but you prefer to have the final say. The Emperor also reflects a system bound by rules and regulations. You create law and order by applying principles or guidelines to a specific situation. Create calm out of chaos by breaking down any problem into its parts and then mapping out the actions you need to take to resolve it. Be systematic, strategic, and highly organized in your approach, and stick to your plan until the end.
The Six of Cups is a card that takes you back to the happy memories from your past, whether as a child, teenager or young adult. You may simply be revisiting those memories in your mind, or you may travel back to your childhood home or reconnect with your childhood friends. Six is a harmony number and indicates cooperation in your relationships. You are ready to give and receive, without expectation. The Six of Cups can also refer to children in your life. It can suggest a pregnancy, a birth, and siblings who play nicely together. It may also be a sign that you are about to spend more time with young children, playing, laughing, and learning together. Children are often here to teach you something about yourself and can serve as great advisors. Kids also set good examples for how to stay present, open-minded, and curious. They see the world as a magical place and their hearts are open to the myriad of pleasures available to them.
I think as writers, we are always open to new creative ideas and nudges, but it seems this is a particularly auspicious time for beginning something new while staying within the boundaries of protocol and approaching with a systematic or organized mindset. Staying in harmony with others and keeping that mindset of our inner child will help keep it all lighthearted and pleasant.
For me personally, this reading really struck a chord as I am starting to work on a new series, but doing it in a completely different way. I’ve always been a pantser, just wrote the stories as they unfolded, but for this series, I am outlining and planning, but at the same time trying not to let it feel too heavy. Let me hear from you. Does this reading resonate with you in any way?
This Dragon card is just gorgeous. That’s all you can say about it.
