Tarot card of the week … We chose the Sun to honor the sign of Leo, which is ruled by the Sun itself. Symbolizing abundance, joy, and vitality, this archetype asks us to unapologetically brandish the torch of our creativity. There’s nobody in the world who will shine your light for you, so what are you waiting for? Connect with the inner radiance that knows no shame, no fear, no self-censorship. Within all of us there’s a steady flame that can never be extinguished. What fuels yours? How can you stoke it and share it with the world?
Affirmation of the week … I have been given the divine directive to do what I can with the talent I have. But unless I choose to use it, I will lose it to days spent playing it safe and keeping it small.
