Even though it's the darkest night of the year, and the coldest of our days are yet to come, we're gifted a beautiful reminder: we gain two minutes of light every day. That's right, our days from here on out will slowly grow longer and brighter until we reach the Summer Solstice come June. What a poetic promise from the cosmos of the gradual emergence of new life to follow the death + decay of winter. ✨Just as in all sacred journeys of healing, this holy day encourages you to keep going! Whatever it is you're leaving behind, recovering from, or moving through, stay patient and gentle with your process. The way out of the darkness may at times feel treacherous and even hopeless, but this time calls for complete surrender that all is well. The gradual progress ahead is an initiation process instilling you with a deeper sense of faith and loving persistence to show up daily for yourself and the evolution of your soul. ✨Stay positive! Keep focused on the here and now. Follow your breath and bathe yourself with loving kindness. Before you know it, you'll be filled with new life, opening you up to grand new delights!
Third time seeing this baby in the past couple of days. The Star card IS about gentle, magical self-care, so no surprise here. ✨Being naked, self-reiki, self-massage, taking a bath with crystals, the ocean, beaches (preferably nude ones), saunas, steam rooms, Russian-Turkish baths, Spa Castle, walking by the river, covering my entire body in coconut oil and putting on music, telling myself "it's all gonna be okay." ✨She's showing up reversed as a reminder to carve out more space in my life for self-care. Beautiful reminder.
"What medicine does this new space offer?" ✨I most always sit in meditation on the question for about 5 minutes, and let my own intuition guide me. I also open myself up to receiving answers from God, guides, spirit animals, or ancestors. Then, I pull a tarot card. ✨This morning, instead of sitting in meditation, I laid down, and was "feelin' myself." I feel really relaxed and comfortable in this new space. Before even drawing a card, I knew the energy I was experiencing was the Star card, just basking in this fresh new life. I shuffled my deck, and I pulled... ✨The Star ✨When the STAR shows up, it's often a very innate, human response to heal yourself. We have the power, intuition, + magical ability as earthlings to use the resources around us to live. We may take these elements for granted on a day-to-day basis, until something shitty happens + takes away the life that we once knew. During this time, our senses heighten + we do everything we can to make it through. The star reminds us we will ALWAYS make it through. We are resilient + self-sustaining. It's the Tower (the card right before the Star) we work so hard on building throughout our lives to be solid + long lasting, but it's the Star that reminds us of the soul's unexplainable sustainability to always endure. ✨This past year I experienced a flood in my apartment, gotten rid of most of my furniture, thrown out old letters, photos, and trinkets, and have nearly cleared out my entire wardrobe. (And not all of it by choice.) This past year has taught me to enjoy being alive and to not take little things for granted. Seeing the Star this morning, and being in a new space I can actually move in, nearly brings me to tears. ✨Thanks for all of those who have helped me move in anyway and who have offered your love + support throughout the process.
✨All I want is permission to sit in silence and stare lovingly into your eyes. ✨👁✨ WILD SOUL HEALING TAROT CHALLENGE // DAY 26: What role does community hold in your life? ✨Second time seeing this beauty today, THE STAR! 💫 ✨In community, I crave deep soul connection, where it's totally okay to sit in silence + simply wash in one another's loving presence. What I seek in others is a feeling of alignment w/ our COSMIC INHERITANCE, to take everything "NEW AGE" and amp it up. All I want is to gather with others through intentional ritual and get fucking weird! Let's remind each other of our true essence, that we're spiritual entities incarnated here on Earth. Let's get naked and lay our bodies on this very crystal we find ourselves rotating on in space. Let's wash each other's alien feet. Let's send each other healing light. Let's talk to crystals, light candles, and play sound bowls until the cows come home! Let's cradle each other with trust + nurture one another's healing journey. Let's bask in our imperfections + hold one another's insecurities. ✨When we come together, stripped naked of our titles + labels, we allow our true essence to shine. This Aquarian vibration we create is only possible in community. When we gather in circle, we create a greenhouse effect for our intentions. When we align our energies, we amplify our powers. All I want is to connect w/ you all, so we can continue to heal each other + our beautiful home, Earth. ✨🌈We must remember, the rainbow is intellectually separated into 7 colors, but her hue's bleed together athousand-fold. Sahasara. Man + woman, black + white, old + young. We are all just different points of expression on a spectrum of loving grace. Let's come home to this Truth + eye gaze with the fact that WE ARE ALL ONE! Let's remind the world through our presence, all religions are the same! Every person we pass is our brother. Our sister. Our auntie. And our friend. ✨So grateful for this online tarot community we've created. Nothing says New Age Family more than a group of people gathering over hand-held devices. The future is now booboos + we hold the power! Let's keep riding this new wave together! Surf's up!
The Star Rx paired with Flamingo Feather wants to remind you that you have the power to heal your life. Whatever situation you're facing, you will benefit from being lovingly present with yourself. Find time this week for a sacred water cleanse. Wash every part of your body with nurturance. Clean every inch of your self, reminding it that you love and care for it: "I love you hands. Thank you for all you do. Now you are clean. I love you knees. Thank you for all you do. Now you are clean." Treat your home, your job, your clothes, everything around you in this same way. The more you take gentle care of what you have, the more you open yourself up to receiving healing energy.
The STAR has a very apocalyptic, alien-like vibe. Not surprising it's ASTROLOGICAL counter-part is AQUARIUS. To fully immerse ourselves in her energy, imagine a huge explosion just occurred on Earth. You wake up from the destruction, naked body covered in smokey ash head-to-toe. You open your eyes. They twinkle bright like STARS. The night is eerily silent. You are the SOLE SURVIVOR. Sweeping yourself out of the rubble, all you can think of is WATER...you must find WATER.
You crawl on hands + knees until you find a pond. You cup your hands + drink this life-giving medicine down. You let out a gasp like the sound of one thousand shooting stars. Your breath dissolves into a COSMIC POTION of paradise. This water reminds you what it means to be ALIVE. You submerge your body entirely + clean away the ash from the explosion, irrigating each + every SPARKLING cell of your being. You get out + pour water in libation on this very crystal of an earth, an offering to the Gods. You lay your bare body down. Your skin SHINES like a NEWBORN. Your arms + legs sprawl out like a star and you gaze into the COSMOS. SPRINKLED amongst the night sky, shining down on you, all the incarnate souls. You inhale the light of the stars. One in particular shines BRIGHTER than the rest. A new sense of FAITH washes over you, creating SPACE for NEW HOPE. You make a WISH on this star + PROMISE to HEAL your body + the Earth. This is the dawning of the AGE OF AQUARIUS.
When the STAR shows up in a reading, it's a very innate, human response to HEAL YOURSELF. We have the POWER, INTUITION, + MAGICAL ability as EARTHLINGS to use the RESOURCES around us to LIVE. We may take these elements for granted on a day-to-day basis, until a MAJOR CATASTROPHE happens + takes away the life that we once knew. During this time, our senses heighten + we do every thing we can to make it through. The STAR reminds us we will ALWAYS make it through. We are RESILIENT + SELF-SUSTAINING. It's the TOWER we work so hard on building throughout our lives to be solid + long lasting, but it's the STAR that reminds us of the SOUL's unexplainable sustainability to always ENDURE.
As spiritual beings incarnating on Earth during this time + place, we are being called to rise up to fully recognize our Truth. The United States has the potential to be a BEAUTIFUL WELL-SPRING of healing energy for the entire planet, but we currently find ourselves in REVERSE. Our spiritual mission as a whole is off kilter. Many of us are DWELLING on negative issues + STUCK in belief patterns distracting us from truly aligning with our highest mission, one of HUMANITARIANISM. As a country, we've been gifted with resources enough to heal not only ourselves, but also great Mother Earth + every creature living. If you are awake to this Truth, you are light years ahead of many others, and it's important to remain PATIENT and remember that in actuality we are all part of a COLLECTIVE ENERGY. The LACK OF FAITH in others is only slowing the process down. You are being called to propel your attention towards a better future with compassion. Those with opposing beliefs may be completely unrelatable, or even intolerable, but they too have incarnated here + now so we can work through this shift TOGETHER. Acknowledge what feelings this time brings up for you, especially if you're losing hope, and REMEMBER, we are just at the prefaces of the AGE OF AQUARIUS (The Star card's astrological correlation). The heavy extreme polarity of the political climate currently taking place is a natural resistance of OLD ENERGY holding on for dear life (which we see in ten of wands) as we usher in this new inevitable COSMIC WAVE. Know that even if you are feeling uncertain about whether we as a nation will ever reach HARMONY, this time of RESISTANCE is an important part of our journey. Our FAITH in each other is being put to the test. It's so important we go through this trial together. These periods ALWAYS signify a major transformation. Keep believing in the Cosmic Intelligence of the Universe to naturally EXPAND + EVOLVE. You can rest easy knowing all of this is ABSOLUTELY DIVINE.
