Happy Saturday, everyone! The next seven days are bringing about incredible cosmic change. From Litha, or Summer Solstice, on Wednesday the 21st to the beginning of Cancer Season on Thursday the 22nd and the Cancer New Moon on Saturday the 24th, there is a LOT going on in the near future. I wanted to make a quick post based off of the reading I did this afternoon. Here are two cards that shed light on how to make the most of these potent energies.
“I live each moment with a presence of gratitude.”
First, breathe. It might sound overwhelming to know that there’s a lot happening in the cosmos - changes which will affect us in turn - but the first message in this reading is to relax. As above, so below. The Universe is constantly going through cycles, and like the Universe we will persevere. Cancer energies encourage us to refocus our attention to domestic, intimate, personal and internal matters. We are called to look within and reevaluate what is important to us. One of the most important aspects of any spiritual and mindful practice is to give thanks and relish in the present. We can only live one moment at a time, that moment being the present. We must give thanks before we’re ready to accept, embrace and manifest the Universal messages.
“I focus on what is working.”
The second half of this reading reminds us that we have incredible personal power and the ability to manifest incredible realities in our lives. We are called to revisit what is successful in our lives and to listen to our intuition. Neptune entered Retrograde yesterday and will continue to rule over illusions/false perceptions, dreams and intuition. These potent energies may send confusion our way and make it more difficult for us to accept our truths - truths necessary to acknowledge in order to move forward. Don’t let this information discourage you, though. This card reminds you to focus on what is working, focus on what’s going right and focus on your successes. Strengthen your Solar Plexus during this time in order to cultivate the confidence and self-assuredness that you will need to move forward.
Ultimately, expect some confusing and challenging energies this week. But know that you have the capacity to manifest those energies into productive truths that will help better you as a person. The energies provided by the Universe are neither inherently bad nor good, it’s up to you to work with them in effective and honest ways that will nourish your soul.
