Hey, It’s Jonathan,
Welcome to the start of a fresh and inspiring week.
You can expect your creativity to be on fire in new and exciting ways as we enter the week ahead.
Unconventional projects or ideas might pop up for you. So letting yourself be spontaneous in the coming days will help you take full advantage of these energies.
This creative energy will likely show up in areas you haven’t explored in the past, which will pique your curiosity in fresh ways.
As a result, It’s possible there will also be new emotional frontiers, which could feel overwhelming.
However, you will be able to balance these emotions with clear and rational thinking. Which will help you decide what’s important and what can be put aside for the time being.
This is a great week to reach out to friends you trust for feedback, and to put attention on balancing your work and home life.
All together, it’s a great week for exploration, and attending to home life as well as work life from a new perspective.
Let’s take a look at the cards.
Card #1: Page of Cups | Unexpected Inspiration
Has it felt like you’ve started to enter new territory in your creative and emotional self? In the recent past, it may have felt like you’ve been in a boring streak, where everything seems to be on repeat with little change.
Well, things are about to get exciting.
When a Page is drawn, it often indicates a new facet of yourself is emerging for you to explore. In the case of the Page of Cups, this will likely be uncharted territory related to your creativity and emotional self.
Don’t be surprised if an unexpected flash of inspiration arrives in the form of an artistic idea, a romantic desire, or a creative project.
Just like the fish popping out its head from the Page’s cup in the card, an out of the ordinary idea may pop into your life this week.
Open yourself to the unexpected, and magic will appear. Let yourself be swept away by imagination, romance, and possibility.
It’s important to be receptive to the unexpected for new ideas to arrive this week. If you already have it in your head to not allow anything that doesn’t fit your regular day-to-day life, then you’ll file it as a ‘no,’ without letting the excitement of it catch your full attention.
If you can balance the fantasy, and the joy of imagination with our next cards clarity of mind and discernment, then you’ll be both inspired and practical, which is a winning combination.
Card #2: Queen of Swords | Impersonal Clarity
Could you use some clear and direct feedback on your current life circumstances? The Queen of
swords often represents the kind of friend who is willing to tell it how it is, for better or for worse.
She is very practical, unbiased, and prefers direct, non-flowery, communication.
When the Queen of Swords is drawn in a reading, she is often an indication that it’s time to ask yourself some hard questions. These are questions about the practical things in life, such as, ‘should I be spending money on this thing, when I haven’t budgeted for these more important things first?’
If you do have a friend who knows how to get to the core of issues with their no-fluff style, reach out to them this week. You don’t have to take all of their advice, but it might be helpful to get your thinking out in the open so you can consider it in a new light.
The Queen of Swords is also a master of boundaries, and cutting things and people out of her life from an impersonal place. You might find that saying no to people and circumstances will feel easier this week.
Her capacity to delegate how you use your time will help you to create space to pursue something new and interesting.
Our first card, the Page of Cups, indicates new inspiration and creative ideas for this week. So you may find it easier to discern which projects to follow, and which to leave behind, with the help of the Queen of Swords.
Balancing between creative pursuits, and clear minded action, is part of what you are learning at this time. Likewise, being able to balance work, relationships, and home, will be available to you with the influence of our next card.
Queen of Pentacles | Balancing Home and Work
Has it felt like you’re either putting too much, or not enough, attention to either your home or work lives? If this has been challenging for you, it’s possible you will start to find a good rhythm between these two areas in the coming days.
The Queen of Pentacles represents the best of both family nurturer and family provider. She not only creates a loving home and household, but is also a hard working provider financially as well.
This Queen also happens to be particularly fertile and abundant. She’s learned that abundance comes both from hard work, with a keen business sense, but also from creating a loving household with warm and loving connections.
Allow yourself time to nourish your business life, as well as your home life. This means spending focused time alone and time with loved ones.
The type of creative, exciting ideas indicated by our first card tend to come when we give ourselves time to putter and slow down. So don’t be afraid to take time to nest, and rest up.
It could be that the inspired ideas coming in this week will have something to do with attending to your household, or balancing work and family.
Perhaps you will find a way to start working from home, or an idea that will open up more free time for you to put towards other projects or relationships.
One way or another, finding the balance of work and home, inspiration and nourishment, will benefit you greatly this week.
From Inspiration to Action
Our first card, the Page of Cups, is inviting you to explore new dimensions of your creative and emotional self.
It’s likely something new and exciting will tempt you in a direction you might not have expected.
If you use clear thinking, or maybe have an honest conversation with a clear minded friend, it’s possible a new idea could get worked out into something tangible.
A large part of grounding a new idea or inspiration into your life, is taking your time, and moving from a place of nourishment.
In other words, if you are overworking, and afraid that you won’t be able to accomplish what you’ve set out to do, your work will reflect this state of consciousness.
On the other hand, if you take your time, give yourself ample room for rest and self love, what you create will have that level of attention built into it.
Have fun this week, and enjoy the new inspiration that’s knocking on your door.
And in Service,
P.S. What stops you from taking action when you have a new or exciting idea? What beliefs do you have that keep you from going after your dreams?
