What depth and insight we would gain if we chose to see the darkness of the night and the looming glow of the Moon as the beginning chapter of any timeline. The Sun, which initiates the day and shines down warmly upon us, may very well be the latter of any given increment of time. Shadow Work must always come before the emergence of Self, in any context. The hermit archetype goes into a spiritual hibernation to emerge with new insight for the collective. As Scorpio Season pulled us into deeper, coveted realms of the Self and its accumulated wounds, we may have grown accustomed to darkness. Though we now know how to navigate this sacred territory, Sagittarius energies are beckoning us out of the shadows and into the widespread rays of sun.
This week, pay attention to the transitions unfolding in your life. As with any transitional period, collapses and beginnings are so blurred that we experience death and rebirth simultaneously. There is no definite, isolated shedding or emerging. They are of the same essence. When we choose to welcome the refreshing, liberating reality that already is, we can finally begin to say goodbye to relationships to people, habits and behaviors that caused us pain. Or rather, we have finally released ourselves from the pattern of accepting pain!
This week especially, do not be surprised if old relationships or tendencies begin to reemerge. As the timeline collapses, the old and the new are Divinely conglomerated; will we choose to observe the “old” with the perspective of the “new” or will we be sucked into our old ways? Let your heart guide you. It knows heaviness and though it dreams of luminosity and weightlessness, it is already inherently these things. The promise of deeper, more authentic and fulfilling emotional experiences is so beautifully expressed in both The Sun and Ten of Cups. There is abundance everywhere, if only we would shift our gaze from the shadows on the wall to the opening of the cave. The Scorpionic lessons have served their purpose, but it is simply time to move into a greater, more expansive state of existence.
Trust that you have nurtured your pain enough and step into the sun rays, where you can nurture the abundance of other emotions you are capable of experiencing! Ten of Cups is a joyous card that illustrates harmony, fulfillment and peace. Our relationships are loving and healthy. If you still struggle with accepting the love that you deserve, know that at any moment you can stop retelling a narrative of lack, thematic poverty like being without love or support, and scarcity. The power and energy you invest in conditioning yourself to believe that you are unworthy would best be utilized affirming and celebrating the joy you are capable of creating. Be gentle with yourself, but trust that this is a new opportunity to affirm the reality you desire. For it’s never in the far off future or accessible through someone else. Love simply requires that you love it back.
This week’s frequency is one of celebration, renewal and glory.
