Has anger and disappointment brought you to the brink of exasperation?
These emotions are normal and in many ways they can be healthy. Suppressing these emotions may in time destroy us from the inside, finding a way to vent these feelings and emotions in a productive manner will help us in staying balanced. Being aware of how we act on these emotions will serve us well during the week to come. How we act on our emotions of anger and disappointment may indeed put our security at risk as well as our ability to enjoy the fruits of our labors.
In all situations, this week keep your head calm and do not act without thinking first.
Any person capable of angering you becomes your master
By the end of the week you may see an opportunity arising. This opportunity should not be ignored no matter how you feel about it when it is presented to you. Indeed, fate is reaching out its hands and offering your next adventure.
With open hands and accepting heart, I offer you today’s mantra:
My emotions run strong
My head stays cool
With intellect and discernment, I choose my reaction
Honoring my emotions and honoring my head
Do you feel the calling to slow down and take stock of the love that graces you?
Slowing down does not mean stopping altogether, the week to come calls for romantic gestures. These gestures do not need to be big, but be sure to show your feelings for your beloved in a sincere and deep ways. Along with these romantic gestures take the time to see where your beloved could use some support, perhaps joining in with them on the daily chores lightening their load just a bit to make their days a bit brighter and easier.
Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
Today is the perfect day to share some time with your beloved, talking and communicating the deeper feelings that you may have resisted sharing. In the space of openness and honesty much may be revealed. This May be the catalyst for that transformation that you have felt coming. Remember when we resist the change that needs to happen, we create tension in the fabric of the relationship.
As slow as water flowing uphill, I offer you today’s heartfelt mantra:
Today there is no hurry
There is space for words to flow freely
And time to dance slowly
With my beloved
Are you ready for the love in your life that you desire?
Is your heart willing to open up, both to receive and offer that love that you desire most?
Raven tells us that great magic is coming, it may not be understood or predictable, but indeed it is offering much. Even though this magic may not be for you to control it is definitely for you to accept and perhaps even influence the course and direction that this magic will take you. This is a time for you to be clear on what it is that you wish to bring into your love, be it communication, passion companionship or perhaps pure joy.
Passing into higher forms of desire, that which slumbered in the plant, and fitfully stirred in the beast, awakes in the man.
The cards are telling us to not only be open to what you wish to bring in but to be supportive loving kind and generous in your relationships. This is the time to be active and vibrant, showing up in the biggest way that you can for the ones that you love. This positive, outgoing energy on your part may be the catalyst that brings in more love and energy on the part of the ones that you love.
Do not fear, showing the depths of your affections, and have no expectations of anything in return. This freedom for you will allow freedom for others to join you in this amazing dance of passion.
My heart opens to today’s mantra:
My passion and love is for all to see
No longer hiding behind a silk curtain
Transparent and open is who I long to be
Knowing the ones who love will follow me
Are you ready for a time of smooth sailing, peace, and prosperity?
Passion for what you do will lead you to a place of abundance, perhaps not monetarily, but abundance and satisfaction for what you do. This sounds really good, but you will also be asked to sacrifice something that is deep in your heart, and confess a wrong doing. All of this leads you to a place of brilliant business decisions. Your business mind will be very acute and you will be able to see clearly the wise choices that call to be made.
Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.
Even with this there will be shifts and changes, be discerning when it comes to changes offered by a feminine energy at this time. This feminine energy that offers insight and help may have an agenda of their own, be sure that they’re true agenda matches yours.
In this time of good cheer, I offer you this mantra:
I breathe easy today
Knowing that things will go my way
It is as simple as that.
Is it passion that you seek?
Passion is just part of the relationship. The deeper parts, the foundations, are to be honored in this time. Time built these foundations, the trials and tribulations make for a strong footing, and the joys and pleasures build beauty and substance. The branches are the passions that are alive and vibrant calling in the light. Certainly the passions are the places that bring health and vitality to the relationship, but the foundation keeps the relationship strong and centered. If lacking passion or the strong foundation the relationship may wither and die.
Sometimes you must be strong enough to admit your limitations. Honest enough to say, I don’t know. Have courage enough to admit when you’re wrong. Have faith enough to hold on. Have wisdom enough to know when to let go.
There is certainly a time of some turmoil in a relationship, but the hope is to work and with caring thought the foundation can be built stronger, albeit perhaps quite different. Forgiveness and generosity is what should be offered as well as understanding and kindness. This is a time of choice, and a time of change. This is not the time to forgive unconditionally, but it is a time to reconsider and embrace the changes that must take place. An ending or a new beginning awaits, but make no mistake the time for change is now.
When was the last time you flew on the wings of pure passion?
Is that what you desire to embrace again?
That pure passion only comes from a balanced, sustainable relationship. This does not mean the relationship is forever; but this does mean that in this moment the foundation is strong enough to hold up to that beautiful passionate energy that will surely test its strength and sustainability.
I offer you this mantra as my heart beats faster with the memory of passion experienced and the desire for passion anew:
The passion we share
Unbridled and free
Lifts our wings
And lightens our souls
Do you know who you are?
This is a question often asked, and perhaps is it rarely understood?
Who we are in business and in our personal lives is continually changing and shifting. This week the cards are telling the tale of an intense shift in who we perceive ourselves to be and what others perceive us to represent.
Are you prepared to be something different than you ever have been?
This is all very positive. With this change comes the opportunity to draw in new elements of what you do and let go of what may no longer feel right. This is not the time to hold onto things just because your heart is used to having them around. Nurture the new that you create and embrace what is offered freely. Keep your mind grounded in reality, this is not the time for flights of fancy, but it is time to use your intellect and experience to choose wisely what it is you let go and what it is you bring in, creating your new vision.
Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
Joel A. Barker
As everything that you have known shifts and changes, and you look in the mirror not recognizing what is reflected back, the opportunity to build new is offered. The difficult part is tearing down the old before building the new; this is where your strength and perseverance come into play. You are most definitely capable of the challenges ahead of you.
I offer you this mantra:
Ever shifting and changing
Dramatic and frustrating
This is the time to tear down and let go of what has been part of everyday.
Knowing that what will be built to replace all that was
Will bring brilliance and joy to all that will be
What is it that you think of when you hear the word community?
When we embrace our beloved, we create a community, it may seem to be a community of two, but indeed the community created is much larger. Friends, family, coworkers, and even past relationships come into the community in a very real way. In this time remember the support that is offered in this community. When you are lacking or when you are feeling the need for nurturing; embrace this community ask for help when needed and offer help when asked, they are here for you at this time.
We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community… Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.
This is the time to be aware of the lessons of the past and how those lessons affect the present moment. Be aware of the patterns from your past, this may affect how you nurture your heart. Before making a “leap of the heart” embrace your intelligence and the lessons that you’ve learned from the past adventures.
I offer you this supportive mantra:
In times of trouble and distress
I embrace my community
We are truly one
Are you a risk taker?
The vision you see of the future may make little sense in this moment, divine inspiration seldom dose. Let go of what convention tells you to do and embrace what you are feeling in your heart, you may find that leverage point to change your View of what is possible.
“Every man is a divinity in disguise, a god playing the fool.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson~
As you take this part of the journey be aware of those around you who wish to exert control and influence over your choices. At this time ego is not your friend, the ego of others to influence and control your actions and your own ego to show everyone else that you are right. The inspiration that you feel will stand on its own without the intervention of the ego.
Humbly I offer you this brilliant mantra:
I create with divine inspiration
Allowing for a moment what calls me to become obsession
Knowing the risk that I take
And inviting the rewards of blazing a new trail
When it comes to love, are your eyes truly open?
Crow energy brings messages and aid in opening one’s eyes. This may come to you as intuition, or that little voice in the back of your head whispering wise counsel. If this is the time you wish for your eyes to be open, listen to the wise counsel whisper in your ear, then perhaps you will be able to see the bigger picture.
Is this the time for you to look up and take in the bird’s eye view of what love means at this moment?
I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego. I believe we’re all put on this planet for a purpose, and we all have a different purpose… When you connect with that love and that compassion, that’s when everything unfolds.
I offer you this loving mantra:
My eyes may be closed
When it comes to love
But when I listen to my intuition
I will see clearly with 20-20 vision
How are your connections serving you?
How are you serving your connections?
The connections you make in your day-to-day business is the lifeblood that feeds every part of what you create.
“Do stuff, be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”
~ Susan Sontag~
There may be an epiphany in the week to come; this may have to do with judgment. Looking beyond the superficial, and deeper into the heart of the matter, will bring a new appreciation for the situation. Slowing down and only taking enough, leaving some for those who have supported and honored this journey will serve this week.
I offer this mantra to start the week:
Lifeblood flows in what I create
My heart beating with inspiration
I embrace my drive to be more
