Venus comes forth in the form of The Empress. Since coming out of exaltation, the numbers on our cards are very low. This signifies the start of a new journey. We came prepared. We have been doing the work, and are ready to meet this Queen right at her doorstep. The Empress takes nothing and needs nothing but the bounty within her spiritual wealth. She is pleased with our journey. She is the archetypal mother, possessing maternal wisdom, and the desire for the wellbeing of all. Her soul is fertile and calming to all those who encounter her. If you don’t feel like you’re able to sit with her on this throne, invoke her. Her healing powers are deep. Today is a day to ask for guidance if you need it, if you do not, continue to celebrate your power. The moon sits at it’s first quarter stage, so you can expect to grow, learn, and feel the positive transformation if you engage.
A meditating man floats in a calming blue aura, guided by the eye of Horus. Both figures are teachers, and both are urging us to follow in their likeness. We each have different hobbies and interests. This is important because it gives us each a special gift. It’s now more important than ever to fine tune these gifts, and think about how you’re going to pass these onto others. The Hierophant engages all elements, like The Magician, but here they come into full expression. The tools you have learned are your powers to change the world. Use your tools to delve into the depths of matter and spirit. We are the new masters.
I FOLLOW THE WISDOM PATH, AND I BECOME WISDOM MYSELF
The Queen has arrived at an oasis. She has pushed through the crux, and she’s entered the other side. She sits with Mercury and Venus in the sign of Aries and offers up new life. You’ve entered her castle through each epic choice you’ve made, and you’ve manifested this life elixir. You’ve got so much power right now, and it’s time to celebrate! For today, tune in to the needs of your body. Exhibit some self care. Eat foods that make you feel light and happy. Be with people that you love. There has been a lot of difficulty behind us, and now we can tend to our wounds, basking in the sweetness of relief. We can look back upon our long journey and gain a more objective outlook on what we just endured. Perspective is key.
THE JOURNEY IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE DESTINATION.
Our bodies are feeling the shift of Venus, which has been in its sign of exhaltation, Pisces, since January 27th. Tomorrow it makes a huge shift into Aries. Why are we talking about this today? Today, Venus traverses across the gandanta, the knot that exists between the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces, and the first, Aries. We’re at a point of crossing over. Yesterday, the horizon showed itself to us, and today we decide whether or not we’re going to go for it. Are you going to take the necessary risks that will lead you to your dreams? The 9 of Swords has shown up to remind you how important and special you are. You should follow your heart. Don’t let the darkness seep through and tell you you’re not good enough. You can do it, and you will. Whether you know it or not, steps are in motion to make it happen for you. You just need to claim it. Claim it today. Say out loud, “I will take every opportunity to follow my dreams.” The mind can be a slippery thing, but with much practice, we can learn to tame the untamed beast.
I INVITE CALMING ENERGY INTO MY MIND, AND I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN MY MENTAL WELLNESS.
We gaze upon a triumphant woman standing upon a vista of crystals. She’s looking toward a horizon we cannot see. Only she can see what lies ahead. We’ve put in a lot of work over the past 8 days, and we’ve set in motion what we want for our future. Now, as the moon waxes and grows larger, so will we. Our lives are on a path toward our dreams. We can’t quite see how that will manifest for ourselves yet, but be open. Know that it, most likely, will be different than you envision, but it’s yours. Expect parts of your life to begin to overlap, because there is rarely a smooth transition in life. Everything is happening for you now.
I FIND COMPLETION IN MY HEART, AND SEE THE NEW HORIZON
Pursuing transformation is the theme of our weekend. We begin by seeing the Death card. This card is huge in our steps toward change. This card is telling us to open ourselves to it and embrace what happens. For some of us it will be hard because, sometimes, you have to empty your cup before you can fill it again. Mars is giving us that push toward our purpose, and whatever doesn’t fit has to go. When we look at the card we see a woman in an elegant dress standing in front of a long ascending staircase. The goddess Nuit is ready to receive Death. Physically and symbolically, Death is inevitable, and it is marked by beginnings and endings.
A SNAKE SHEDS ITS SKIN, AND SO MUST I, FROM TIME TO TIME.
Coming right off of the Super Moon, we have Mars transit Gemini. This is adding to our unstoppable flow from the New Moon. We’re seeing that horizon and climbing onto the next plateau, and now we’re being given a driving boost. This is not the time for leisure. Make plans. Mars will be energizing all of the duel signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. This isn’t the first time we see the 9 of Cups show up for us. It came in last Sunday and prepared us for our New Moon intentions. Now, it shows up as we begin this energetic transformation. Continue your manifestations from the New Moon. Keep that vibe alive through Sunday. Let’s celebrate this motion, and embrace the joyous energy which now surrounds you.
I FEEL BLESSED BY ALL THE MAGIC IN MY LIFE
The New Moon of May has arrived! It is said that you feel the pull of a New Moon 4 days before it occurs and 4 days after it occurs. With this being a Super Moon, that is absolutely true. We are experiencing huge transformations! We’ve been talking about feeling a horizon coming up, but we can’t seem to see it or see over it. You’ll begin to see how things are taking shape for you over the next week or so. We have some planetary shifts to assist us with this process, but you’re doing a lot of the work yourself. Your manifestations from the prior New Moons of 2017 will start to take form from this moment forward. It isn’t going to be all bright and shiny, because how would we grow, but it’s all going to be significant and developmental. In western astrology the Moon is moving into Gemini. There are many articles about the duality of this sign and the chaos approaching, but I don’t see a lot of chaos, in the next week anyway. The King of Wands has shown up to guide us through this New Moon in Taurus/Rohini. This card ignites a ripple we’re going to see flow through our lives until Sunday. A man, seated in the lotus position, floats between the Sun and Moon. A Kundalini serpent slithers up his back, and an outpouring of energy flows from his head. Kundalini proclaims major transformation, as I have mentioned before. Whatever has transpired over the past four days has an unstoppable momentum. All you have to do to keep it going is to keep the balance. We are being swept up in a rapid current, and even if it’s uncomfortable, it’s up to us to go with the flow.
I AWAKEN TO MY GREATEST POTENTIAL
This sweet little card likes to show up on the weekend to remind us to live our best lives. It’s a great day to speak about what you’re grateful for in your life, and a great time to make a couple of wishes. Anything you wish for today should be included in your New Moon manifestation. Don’t slumber through this magical time! Embrace the changing planets, be thankful for all of the wisdom you have gained over the years, and rejoice! Embrace the vibrations that surround you!
I FEEL BLESSED BY ALL OF THE MAGIC IN MY LIFE
Continuing on with the Major Arcana today, we have the Devil in our midsts. This is always a great reminder that we don’t need to be what others want us to be. This card shows up when it’s time to encourage ourselves do live as our innermost voice tells us to live. Breath in the air today and enjoy the simple things. If hard times and heaviness come at you today, remember that Saturn is doing it’s thing and we were expecting it. Every test makes us smarter and wiser. Laugh off the negativity. The less we laugh about our circumstances, the more possessed by them we become. Today is not a day for laziness. so stay active, and keep it light!
I FIND EMOTIONAL LIGHTNESS THROUGH MY PLEASURE
