We have a beautiful period of clearing and cleansing this week, which will allow us to let go and grow! The Release card jumped out of the deck as I was shuffling, with a huge sense of urgency I might add, and it set up the theme for the week. This is the end of a phase for you and now it’s time to move on. This forward movement is exactly that – forward! Archangel Azrael comes to help you to release any grief, anger, resentment, or fear that has been holding you back, for once you are able to do so, you can experience a profound shift that brings with it healing and levity. Notice the horses to the side of him. Horse energy represents freedom and the power of choice. Letting go is your choice. It can feel difficult to release our pain and suffering at times because despite the discomfort of them, it may be what we’ve become accustomed to feeling. Know that allowing for this to be lifted and carried away to Spirit by Azrael can and will provide you with the seeds of transformation.
The Queen of Air is a beautiful follow-up card. The Air suit is that of the intellect. We’ve allowed for an emotional and spiritual release and now it’s time to look at things logically. Channel the queen energy to do this. This woman is fierce, realistic, and experienced. She knows what she wants and how to get it. She is also aware that in order to continue along her path, it is necessary to cut free that which no longer serves you. Take time to determine if there is any loose end that you are resistant to letting go of so that you may address it and deal with it immediately. This is not an exercise of the heart. Get out a pad and paper and inventory yourself. Look at your patterns and what may still be hiding in a nook or cranny and bring it into the light and under your scrutiny. This is a time to be fully in your power.
This is hard work and so the pay-off is high. We end the week with the Two of Water card as we head back into the watery realm of the emotions. We’ve taken an intellectual broom to our dark corners and now we are ready to forgive if that is necessary or make amends if that is what is needed. Our candid self-appraisal and the willingness to take appropriate action allow for the positive resolution of conflicts and misunderstandings. Because of this our relationships with others are able to take on a new depth of meaning and we will enter into a period of heightened intuition and creativity. With every polishing of our rough edges, we can shine in a new light!
