I can’t think of a better energy to start the week with than The Faery Godmother! She comes to us with blessings of abundance, grace and love. As you step into your week, remember to take note of the good that surrounds you and all that comes to you. This gentle presence donned with the crown of stars, flowers and branches brings illumination and resources to you to help light your way. She is the lady of last minute rescues, but you don’t have to wait until you are in hot water to call on her for help! She offers her love and assistance freely and guides you to the most graceful of outcomes. This week pay special attention to the inflow of love that comes to you in all forms, be it a special gift, the shoulder of a friend in a time of need or the arrival of someone new and special in your life. Love abounds when we keep our eyes open for it – just remember that it flows best when it is given and received. Keep your channels open and when you receive a smile of encouragement from an unexpected source, pass it along to someone else. Open your heart and the Universe will flood it with blessings.
The Faery Godmother ushers in our week in part because we may need to call upon her as we move forward and face our fears. Most of our fears are not real – they are founded in old patterns and limiting beliefs that we developed as children, and while they may have served us when we were younger, they have now far outstayed their welcome. G. Hobyah warns us that this week we need to be willing to look at these as they arise, as that is truly the only way to move through them. When we can see the truth, we are empowered to create lasting change. Allow the support of The Faery Godmother to shine her light on these so-called goblins in the closet so that we may see them for what they really are and then act accordingly. In some instances, fears are real, and so it is important for us as well to be prepared to take necessary action when this is the case. An important lesson of this card is to learn to discern between the real and imaginary concerns so that we may continue to grow and expand while also caring for ourselves.
In part, fears are popping up because we have been moving forward with big dreams and ideas. When we get to a point in which we are truly facing in the direction of our life path, our egos like to jump in and give us all sorts of reasons for why we can’t do something. The truth of the matter, though, is that we can. Last week we were given a message to study or apprentice in a field of interest, and that message continues with The Master Maker card. His message is to “Do whatever you do as well as you can.” This is a time to work on mastering your craft and for using your ingenuity and resilience to continue moving forward. We have the strength and tenacity to accomplish our dreams if we can put the naysaying voices of the ego to rest. Joy is one of the keys here – remember to bring your love for the subject to your work and to raise your standards enough to challenge you and spark new insight and innovation. Be careful not to overwhelm yourself, though: our little Master Maker shows us in his tree pose that balance is one of the keys to success.
