Hello Sweet Friends,
This is Jonathan, with a fresh reading on powerful changes to come this week.
Get ready, because our third card for the week, the Tower, is warning you to look out for shocking revelations that could change your entire perspective on something important this week.
Luckily, our first and second cards are very supportive in this process. You will have the wisdom and the insight to move through the upcoming weeks with grace.
If you listen to your intuition, and remember to support and love yourself, you will find yourself turned more towards positive change than negative.
All three cards this week are from the Major Arcana, which means they are not only powerful, but they are talking about a longer time period than just this week.
That being said, it appears that this week is the start of a change that could impact you for some time.
Let’s take a look…
Card #1: The Empress | Nurturing Your Feminine
Have you been needing more nurturing energy in your life recently? Your first card for the week is the Empress, and she wants you to nourish yourself with gentle warmth and abundance.
She is encouraging you to access your feminine energy, and enjoy your bodily, sensual self.
The Empress is fertile and alive. She knows how to enjoy the beauty life has to offer. As your first card in the reading, The Empress represents an opportunity to access your natural sense of wealth, pleasure, and wisdom this week, and in the weeks to come.
The Empress card depicts the Divine Feminine is sitting in nature, surrounded by streams and trees. Her love of nature and beauty has given her the understanding of natural cycles, and a relationship with the natural magic of life.
Keep in mind there are natural currents to life, just like the seasons. Honoring each ‘season’ of your life, the ups and the downs, is part of what can make you skilled at moving through change.
Your own deep feminine is rich with possibilities. Let the Empress call forward your inner gifts by honoring the creatrix in you this week.
Give yourself time to make your space beautiful by filling your home with candles, or listening to your favorite music. Spend time in nature, or cook your favorite meal.
The Empress wants you to feel nurtured, and to nurture others. She is the perfect, eternal mother, and is reminding you to love yourself unconditionally. Take a bubble bath to soothe your soul. Remember, the more you are aware of the beauty around you, the more you draw beauty and abundance to you.
This plump, sensuous, form of the divine points to your body and deep earth wisdom. Your second card is also deeply feminine, but is pointing you toward cultivating another aspect: the esoteric and mysterious wisdom of the feminine.
Card # 2: The High Priestess | Divine Intuition
Has the veil between normal life and the spiritual realm felt thin to you recently? If not, now is the time to start paying attention. When the Priestess is drawn, you are sure to
feel the spiritual realms knocking on your door.
The High Priestess is a guardian of the secrets between worlds. She is the doorway between the conscious and the unconscious realms, and is beaconing you to listen to the messages that will be arriving this week.
Dreams, signs, and messages will be coming in, so listen closely. Engage with them. If you have a powerful dream this week, write it down. Ask yourself, ‘why is this showing up right now,” and expect an answer to come through a sign, or your intuition.
This is a fantastic week to practice meditation, do a sacred ritual, or pick up your deck of tarot cards. When the veil is thin, there are messages waiting to come through to you.
In conjunction with our first card, the Empress, the invitation to develop your divine feminine is particularly strong. While the Empress invites you into your body and delicious senses, the High Priestess is calling forward your intuitive, goddess-like qualities.
The High Priestess is asking you to develop your intuitive and psychic skills. She understands the larger, cosmic cycles of life, and can help you get a sense of what is coming up in your future. This kind of insight can help you prepare for the larger changes our next card is signaling.
Card #3: The Tower | Transformations to Come
Change is in the air! When The Tower card appears, it’s quite possible new information, or a sudden decision will be made this week, transforming you and your life in a fundamental way.
You are either ready to outgrow an old way of doing something, or you are resisting an inevitable change that is soon to happen, regardless of what you prefer.
You can see in the card a large tower on fire and beginning to crumble. The tower represents a belief or situation that has been with you for a long time. In order to grow, old beliefs or restrictive situations must be willing to transform.
It’s possible that a job which has been detrimental is on it’s way out. Or, a relationship that has been teetering is finally ready to be let go of. The Tower can also refer to a health challenge you’ve been avoiding, which is now unavoidable.
It’s important to remember this can be a beautiful, revelatory, experience. While it will likely be challenging in one way or another, the Tower almost always signifies an opportunity to grow.
Rather than resisting what is inevitable, get on board with the changes coming. Trust that life knows what it’s doing, and if you can let go of control of the situation, it will happen with much more ease.
The Wisdom of Change
Powerful feminine influences this week are encouraging you to explore the wisdom of change and transformation.
The Empress is the archetypal mother. Her understanding of cycles, birth, and motherhood, can guide you through the natural changes ready to occur. Return to her if you feel yourself resisting what is to come.
Remember to honor the beauty around you, and these natural currents of life.
The Priestess can give you insight into your future circumstances, and how you can nurture and prepare for new opportunities arising from these changes.
Deep down, your heart and higher intelligence know what is coming, and know how to navigate it. Your job is to trust, and let go.
Ultimately, there is no other place you can be but where you are now, so enjoy the process! Love and encourage yourself regardless of what is happening around you.
