There is an overlapping of the cards this week in addition to the usual linear approach to their meanings, as the energies of them all support one another. The first card that we have is Making a Choice. We have two paths unfolding in front of us and it is time to make a decision. For some of you this choice feels to be with respect to life path and for others it seems to be related to committing to something outside of your career sector. Remember that every choice that we make defines us, so be willing to commit with a firm “I do!” to whichever option you take. Lack of choice fits into this paradigm as well, so review what is holding you back from taking the necessary steps to move forward. Are you afraid to make the “wrong” choice? Do you worry that you won’t be supported on the path that you take? Notice that there is light at the end of both of the tunnels here. As long as you take action that is in alignment with your higher self, there is no wrong answer. Know that the answer to the query lays within. Check in with your body – how does the choice feel to you? Connect with Spirit through prayer and meditation and then trust that the answer will be revealed.
A part of this choice making process will be looking at that which is holding us back – those people and situations that we are still clinging to despite the fact that they no longer serve us. It is time to break through ego so that we can begin to transform the quality of all of our relationships. The Coming Apart card shows us that the crumbling of the masks of fear allows for a rebirth of sorts, and while sorrow and grief may need to be expressed as we shed our old skins, ultimately our choice to opt for happiness and joy over drama and baggage sends a powerful message to the Divine that we know who we are and what we desire. Again, hanging onto things out of fear is a choice that sends a message as well. What is it that you really want to communicate to yourself and the Universe with respect to who you really are?
How beautiful is it that the Magic Prayer card showed up for us? This is Spirit’s nod to us that our prayers will be answered. We have to make some tough decisions this week, but we are absolutely supported in this journey if we choose to be. Send your prayers to God, meditate and listen for the response, and surrender with trust that all will be taken care of. The action that is needed will be revealed to you, so be aware of the signs around you and be open to receiving confirmation; all you need to do is be open to receiving and to taking any necessary action that is revealed. Remaining in conscious contact with your higher power will allow you to stay focused on the path that feels best to you. And remember, your higher self experiences itself as a direct expression of the Divine, and it will give you feedback through its physical manifestation, which is your body. Check in. Feel. Trust.
