I have missed my regular Monday posts. July was a whirlwind month with two trips AND finding my new book up on Amazon for pre-order. I look forward to some routine weeks ahead and back to working on my WIP, which has been sadly neglected.
I’m not a worrier. I think I got that from my mom. I’ve heard her say a hundred times, “I’m not going to worry about it. If I can fix a problem, I will, and if I can’t, then I won’t worry about it.”
That’s not to say if you are a worrier, you are wrong. Worry has its place and can be a good motivator. From that, the theme this week is letting go of things you cannot change.
Here’s a short but beautiful meditation to help let go.
I returned to the tarot cards this week for guidance for the week ahead. Here’s what I got.
The Knight of Swords is all action. He is ambitious, action-oriented, driven to succeed, and fast-thinking. I could use some of that energy about now. You are so highly motivated to succeed that you will stop at nothing to pursue your dreams. The challenges, difficulties and obstacles on the path ahead don’t faze you because you know where you want to go. Move forward with sheer strength and determination to make things happen. The downside of the fast-thinking, quick-acting Knight of Swords is that sometimes you act too quickly and haven’t thoroughly thought things through.
The Three of Swords can represent a deep hurt or disappointment. Following on the heels of the reckless knight, it is an admonition to slow down and look at where you are going to avoid any loss or setback. It may also represent an emotional release. Maybe you’ve held something pent up for a while. This is a go-sign to let it all out. The good news is that because it is a low number (3), this is a short-lived setback. And you will come out on the other side stronger and wiser.
The Magician card is self-explanatory. When you think of a Magician, you often think of the tools he uses to create his illusion. In this same sense, we have all the tools we need to create a profound magic in our lives. Seriously, everything you need right now is at your fingertips. You have the spiritual (fire), physical (earth), mental (air) and emotional (water) resources to manifest your desires. And when you combine them with the energy of the spiritual and earthly realms, you will become a manifestation powerhouse! The key is to bring these tools together synergistically so that the impact of what you create is greater than the separate parts. This is alchemy at its best!
You may feel inspired, fired-up to take action right now as the ideas are coming fast and furious. But you are warned to slow down, take a realistic look and then go create your own magic!
The Dragon Card today is so inspiring to me! It goes hand-in-hand with the Knight of Swords.
