How to make the most of this week 🎯 … The cosmic weather this week is a mix of sun and storm. On the one hand, Venus’ entry into Pisces will bring sweet relief. After being overly restricted for the last 5 months, Venus is now ready to offer us a well-spring of revelry and magic. On the other hand, we must get through the gauntlet of Mars conjunct Saturn. Now is the time to do hard things. While Mars can bring frustration and impulsiveness, Saturn is the planet of constriction, boundaries, and cold-pressed reality.
They last joined together in March 2020. What have the last 2 years taught you about what is an absolute essential and what is an unsatisfying filler? Use this moment to explore the piercing clarity that comes from weathering tumultuous times. By mid-week, Mercury, the messenger, is busy — there’s a mediation to be done between our limitations, our endurance, and our desire to transform social systems. Let your words be the cord that guides you through this minotaur maze.
Tarot card of the week 🃏 … The 7 of Swords is a card of potential deception, betrayal, and breaking rank. It invites you to follow your own wild path along the razor’s edge of your conviction — though it can bring the loneliness of exile too. A world without whistle-blowers, heretics, and pioneers would be awfully dull. Nevertheless, there’s a thin line between stepping away from the crowd to do what’s right and falling on your own sword of righteousness. The energies this week demand our ruthless self-examination, but also a check in with our higher ideals. If you’re willing to forge your own path, what’s the dream, or muse, stitched to your banner?
Affirmation of the week 😌 … When I am lonely, I ask how I might serve others. When I feel isolated, I focus on the quality of each interaction. When I am lost in a spiral of self-pity, I recognize the bounty that surrounds me by naming everything I’m grateful for.
