What you’ll need 🎒 … As the week begins, Mercury and Venus are in schmooze mode, tempting us to nuzzle all the roses. We best beware of hidden thorns and bees however, as Mercury is jolted by Uranus later in the day. Within the flow of our reverie, mental downloads strike. We may also clamor onto our soap boxes for issues related to climate crisis, land claims, supply chains, or stewardship of the earth itself. Our calls to action could ruffle some institutional feathers, however.
The next day is ripe for power-struggles and huffy egos as the Sun and Pluto clash. Channel the chill of Mercury in Taurus if you find yourself horn-locked with another. The tension should dissipate as the Sun enters Taurus. By sinking into the bliss of the moment, we can replenish our radiance and vitality. When was the last time you ate a carrot straight out of the earth, or crushed wild lavender between your fingers?
Tarot card of the week 🃏 … The World is a card of wholeness and achievement. Whether it’s graduation, a job offer, or the end of a long pilgrimage, The World beckons us to celebrate our wins. Associated with the planet Saturn, and the earth element, the World invites us to bask in stability — even stasis. From this rest state, we can claim our well-earned repose. The World also corresponds to our world and its protection — which we celebrate on Earth Day (April 22nd).
Affirmation of the week 😌 … I practice pleasure seeking to help free my senses and remind myself how wild my roots are. I tend to the earth of my life, and the earth itself, with a deep gratitude for all it grows, sustains, and supports.
