My humble apologies for the recent disruption in continuity – the energies have been quite intense and, one way or another, I have found myself over-run, over-stretched, and, on occasion: overwhelmed!
Back on it now, though, with a small space, mid-space, to resume and update!
There is a slim opening of opportunity for you to aspire through at the moment, and this is as the direct result of your past actions – right actions, that have brought you to a position of self-assuredness, autonomy; authority and accomplishment. You have travelled a long road of learning/healing, to be able to adorn your current standing and position with a mantel of your heart’s desire, passion, and true purpose. You have proven worthy of the great responsibility that accompany your ability to show off your strength and prowess through this authentic version of Self, and you are looking to the future – especially the immediate future (mid-week) through very mature perspectives and without the majority of vulnerabilities you would have once expected or feared. Situations don’t even look as secure and stable as one might have hoped or needed, but it seems as though you are more than confident that you are more than capable of finding your way through this next transitory stage, without the restrictions that had held you hamstrung and anchored, until recently.
Indications at the start of your week suggest that you will be bearing the weight of intense, overwhelming energies yourselves, and it’s hardly surprising (as a water sign), that you should be particularly affected by the lunar eclipse and the full/blood/super moon whose influences we are under right now. The presence of the 7 of Cups in this instance is telling me that ‘opulence’ may be a particular ‘problem’ – ie. too much of a good thing – or that certain things, whilst apparently joyous in nature and worthy of your engagement (could be a loved one or a favoured and rewarding vocation or past-time) can be draining your energy and resources, causing you to spread yourself too thin. Maybe too much is being offered or bestowed upon you, and as grateful as you are; you actually don’t have the time/space/inclination to accept or get involved, with 100% authenticity? You may appreciate the irony, mid-week, of feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place, whilst realising that if you dislodged yourself there’s a fair chance you could slip down through the narrow crevasse that’s pinning you to safety: in a cartoonesque free-falling plunge toward the depths of the distant, dusty canyon floor below – just like Wily E Coyote! This could be a chance to re-write the Road-Runner re-run, and to see yourself scramble to some kind of giddy balance, with only the bare minimum of external attachments, accoutrements and adornments to worry about or have to juggle. A momentary pause to find your feet and to look back at the opulence and/or the overwhelming, to make sure you are satisfied with your assessment and retention of that which you consider to be most of value, before you are ready to end the week and begin the future with a new-found determination for the attainment of a new version of Self – particularly in the material sense. The energies are representative of a more hard-headed approach, particularly in business, tempered with a keen and enthusiastic voicing of value, honour and integrity.
I have a sense from your cards that you have nipped something in the bud or allowed yourself to be stopped in your tracks, without very much resistance, which amounts to you missing out on pursuing a dream or promoting an ideal aspect of yourself. Certain ideas and beliefs that you allow to restrict you and keep you rigid, fenced in and pinned down are the very concepts that could be making you feel warm, tactile, organic, encompassing, and full of potential. You are encouraged and may be directly invited or called by mid-week to revisit the past with nostalgic fondness, and explore an era of innocence, vulnerability and cheer. You may have more than one reason to wish to avoid this. Something was pushed under the carpet by someone’s foot, whilst full eye contact and an unfaltering normality were maintained throughout. An impenetrable shell developed to encase this incident, though an almost visible or symbolic impression of what’s inside remains. Herein appears to lie the antithesis, the antidote, or the mirror cause and effect of the very thoughts and beliefs with which you wrangle and frown at, whilst allowing them to undermine progress and prevent you from owning your full power. You are even more inclined by the weekend to want to avoid emotional head-spaces and favour a more practical, logical and business-like approach to your immediate future, but that feels a little as though it’s the awkward aftermath and sensorial smarting from an unexpected slap in the face – not wanting to draw attention nor look a wimp so head down, keep marching!
You may be showing your true capricious natures at the start of the week – in fact, you may have been developing these current traits for some time… I feel that situations (or characters in your emotional life, whether family, friends, colleagues or partners) have been providing more than their fair share of love, support, sustenance, etc, in what had been mutually-conducive, beneficial and previously enjoyable and much enjoyed set-ups with favourable conditions. It doesn’t feel as though much has altered in the manifest world – only your own take – and potentially that includes taking-for-granted. You may find yourself back-pedalling somewhat, by the middle of the week, if you find yourself a little too much out on a limb for your own liking. Precarious territories may unnerve you more than you might anticipate, given your normal ability for agility, and you may not fully trust the safety-net that you wouldn’t usually require. Don’t be surprised if you feel worn out, weary and drained by the end of the week, though try to avoid that with forewarning and pre-empt minimising the load you could bring on yourself this week, going as steadily as possible. You may find yourself looking externally for strength, answers, or opinions. This may be a good thing if you truly need and have access to sound, unbiased advice from someone trustworthy with your best interests at heart, or the valued opinion of an expert/professional, but be mindful of not undermining your confidence or power this week (emotionally shooting yourself in the foot) as the best person to guide you to your own solid truth is you.
What a gorgeous set of cards you have! The message is really strong, short and very sweet! The beginning of the week shows total harmony and domestic bliss but the kind that assumes the world is your back yard! Where and whatever home is and whoever constitutes your clan – right now – regardless of seasonal fluctuations or necessary surgery to your family tree – even aspects of Self and understandings that may appear alien to anyone else – these are the energies of arrival – or the return to familiar-ity that exude a sense of ultimate recalibration with heart and soul. Midweek sees you climbing even greater heights, in that you are able to move forward, more emotionally balanced and sentient than ever; willing to seek further enlightenment through that which may have eluded or illusioned you before. At the end of the week and over the weekend, you are delivered yet another boost from your already shiny, fluffy, squidgy reading as it depicts an extremely noticeable increase to the depth, quality and beautiful intensity of any roller-coaster heart-racing relationship(s) you step-up gears with…!
Your cards indicate that you are seeing things very clearly, and on particularly deep levels, with wide panoramic views and yet still more peripheral vision. This energy is very self-assured and calm, as if you are just watching, waiting. There is a lovely sense of emotional balance and a willing openness to, or the recent action of having listened to both sides of a story or dispute. Another attribute that may be shining through (otherwise it is to be encouraged!) is your readiness to afford yourself a similar level of nurturing and t.l.c. as you extend so effortlessly and unconditionally to others. The cards offer several days of patient fortification, as you continue to bide your time – feeling not exposed but free and liberated in your nonchalance toward vulnerability, languishing in your poise on the tip of metamorphosis for taking flight in your own time. You have ample comfort where you are, with no real need to move on, anyway. The weekend energies are showing your strengths and aptitudes are verging on inimitable. You may well get whichever ultimate sign or signal you’ve been waiting for – if not some other kind of inspiration, leading to even greater clarity than you began this illumined week with.
The messages for your week centre around your home and social life. You may be feeling or addressing a sense of isolation and separation from friends, loved ones, or society in general. You may need telling to get out more! You may have been having some necessary down-time and been a reflective recluse or you may have received an avalanche of circumstances that have made you fit for little else other than keeping your own world on track, albeit a bumpy one. Particularly if this resonates on a more personal level beyond the physical relevance of social isolation, and you have found yourself emotionally detached or separated from your immediate family: the cards are advising that you focus throughout the week on nurturing your most nurturing relationships – more-so if you are a parent or care-giver of any other description. Home really is where the heart is for you this week, Aries, and your heart (as well as the heart of any other who relies on synchronising with your pulse) needs to be helped to remember its purpose and feel truly alive. I get the sense that you may have become over-strong; hard-headed and spikey-minded; and that you are to be reminded – intellectually and emotionally, of the immoveable force of grace and the power of gentility – but, most of all, of the cleansing, restorative, and life-supporting qualities of love.
Your relationship(s) department looks more than a bit healthy by the end of this week, Taurus; although that status may take some extra work, relinquishments, and persistent, patient application on your part over coming days to achieve. It is likely that your ideas and directions, no matter how keen, sharp or on-point they may well be, need to take a back seat, and good old-fashioned, conventional – even relatively inefficient means allowed to prevail. This goes beyond conceding or bending to another’s will, desire or control. There is more to come to the surface yet, once the energies of this Supermoon start to de-intesify, around Tuesday/Wednesday. Someone is a long way outside of their comfort zone as it is, but you will receive mid-week revelation(s) about the true or greater nature of this, along with the source(s) of the issue(s). So, please be patient with your own progress, and with anyone else close-by who seems on the surface to be undermining you and scuppering your plans. There really is more to this than meets the eye – things that you would and will make many allowances for, as total game-changers, given the full low-down on the circumstances. Your patience and other virtues will do more than score you brownie points – you will attain a deeper mutual understanding and appreciation; love and respect, of Self and with at least one other significant person in your life. The outcome to your overall progress despite this delay to or deviation from your itinerary is not looking too shabby, either! Trust and be flexible.
What a Cancerian set of cards we have here! The Moon; The Hermit; and The Empress all make appearances, in their varying aspects. Starting the week under these intense lunar energies of your ruling planet: you are, perhaps, feeling more than your usual vulnerable and tender at this time. Fear and insecurity may have already lead you to a very isolated and lonely place, but this is set to intensify too and around mid-week you could require rescuing and saving from yourself or some self-imposed oblivion and obscurity. Panic could be evidently full-flow already, or it could be setting in, and this would be the exacerbating factor behind any potential frenzy-whipping or raking up of deep feelings concerning expectations of mistrust, treachery and paranoia. There seems stark contrast between those heightened states of anxiety and the energies I am receiving from the Empress – as though there are certain places/people of safety – maybe a partner or a child – or even the traditional Mother archetype – the one place you hold dear and sacred, where you find yourself at peace and all is pure. This energy or person is your sanctuary; acting as your buffer to the damaging things you are subjected to as a sensitive on a daily basis; and reminds or reaffirms to you the qualities you exude but are incapable of connecting with and displaying otherwise, when you are feeling so emotionally ravaged and broken. Your batteries will be recharging again by the end of next weekend from this infinite perpetual torus of love – even if this is only accessible and achievable through the power of visualisation and imagination; by indulging in fantasies, from within the depths of your cave.
Two words for you: easy, tiger! It seems you are rocketing in to this week with so much gusto, you could be about to develop a massive speed-wobble that could cause you to veer and crash, completely off course. Please learn to walk a little bit first! Your ideas, inspirations, and the way you can generate positive leads from thinking, acting and speaking out loud in an impressively affirmatory manner can leave all around you blown away with astonishment and wonder, but you have an air of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice about you. You have a mature and established set of outlooks, indeed, but your nerve/resolve and ultimately your conviction remains as unruly as your tendency to think in very concrete terms, for fear that your heart may burst in and rule your busy and rigorous head. By the time you have allocated your many, many thoughts within the parameters of the structures, roles and criteria you have generated for their own good (though occasionally and out of habit; for the sake of it); there are more thoughts spewing forth at the rate at which your machine settings have been allowed to rev up to, and you may find yourself overwrought, trying to back-pedal, un-agree , reduce options and obligations, and generally scrabbling to tame and subdue the onslaught of returns that your relentlessly enthusiastic efforts have produced. You would serve yourself better to remember that alchemical processes follow a set series of stages and procedures, including those of distillation. Breathe steadily throughout and pause, in between your actions. Wait to see what comes back, before you generate more. Otherwise and by as soon as mid-week you could also be finding it difficult to back-up in the real world that which you have constructed in the ether. In other words: opportunities could present as direct results of your hard networking, organising and cosmic ordering, but you may not have the means, the finances, or other essential resources to be able to take or follow them through – unable to put your money where your mouth is, undermining the very maturity you were feeling so defined by at the start of the week. Depending on your circumstances: this could have a serious impact on your material situation(s). Elements of financial security, domestic or business arrangements and property/properties may be implicated. On an emotional level, either way: feelings of extreme insecurity and up-rootedness. Go easy, tiger, please…
Emotional stirrings at the beginning of the week may make you feel reticent to move forward too bravely. The intensity of the moon and a pull of strong intuitive tendencies you could be feeling already may possess the ability to make you want to stick with the devil you know, just for a little longer, whilst you ascertain full confidence in how best to proceed. It is possible that you may fall for the illusion of false security, or a false economy, in preference of facing changes, if you are already experiencing an unsettled disposition. These are fairly restrictive energies, to say the least, for the usually most gregarious, lion-hearted amongst you. You may refuse, by mid-week, to accept or display any propensity to appear naive or uneducated, as you are looking forward, optimistically, toward a near future time of less vulnerability and a stronger, more solid foundation upon which to build your new and more organic-feeling material success. It is absolutely fine at this stage to ‘fake it whilst you make it’, without committing any major frauds or outlandish deceptions in the long-run; providing that you realise that your catching up to speed must involve a willingness to both look at and address your material and physical situations and pre-conceptions – maybe even your personal finances, in a completely new and different way.
The majority of your week is characterised by a considerable amount of continued hard work and effort put in to the releasing and letting go of hard work and effort! I am getting the sense that you have been sifting through and organising the chaotic debris from many causes of tribulations from your past, and preparing them, thoroughly, in readiness for their imminent dispatch. As yet: and for a number of conscientious as well as co-dependent reasons, and as the week commences; you are still shouldering this now very neat, streamlined and well presented version of events, as if they were a bag of tent poles, bound together as one efficient stack (where once were the final, treacherous rounds in a game of Ker-Plunk!) Be assured that you have reached the penultimate stage of this final test with these particular karmic marbles, and that your sanity will be preserved or restored just as soon as you graduate by willingly losing them! It is more than possible that by mid-week you could literally halve the number or amount of outdated structures and emotional weaponry from the past that you have been and are currently carrying. It may be that you had designs to bear them forward to a place or point of honouring somewhere special, so you could see them off to your own standard of reverence, but realise the true and negating ironies within such an idyllically intended yet inevitable imbalance, and simply drop those sticks where you are standing and cut to the chase of pursuing your own happiness, unburdened. The weekend energies are portrayed in a far more frivolous light and we do see the potential for happy, bubbly, and giggly times! Cheer and quirkiness seem to be heading your way, with a generous serving of emotional grounding through kin-ship. Embrace any opportunity to spend the weekend amidst the company of like-minds, engaging only in activities and immersing yourself in energies that are of a frequency/vibration compatible with and conducive to your own authentic joyous self.
