Taking a moment to ask about the energy for the week ahead.
The cards that came up (using The Herbcrafter’s Tarot by Latisha Guthrie and Joanna Powell Colbert) were the Curandera of Air - Rosemary and The Chariot - Cedar. The crystals are Blue Kyanite and Tiger’s Eye.
While it’s currently time to take a break and reset, we are being called to get clear on our goals and purpose, to gather our wisdom and resources, and get ready to take action that aligns with our bigger picture. Manifestation cannot happen without intention and putting in work. Our dreams cannot become a reality if we stay stagnant.
It’s time to get to work. Use today to plan out the rest of your week. While you’re at it, why not brainstorm your goals for this month/year, the journey you are on in this lifetime, and your soul’s divine purpose. That may seem like a tall order, but have fun with it. Make a vision board. Journal about how you want your life to be in the future. Do a visualization meditation on the person you want to be. Set goals. Prioritize what you want to accomplish. Remember that you can do anything but you can’t do everything - so decide what is most important. Write out detailed steps you can take towards your ultimate goal(s). Use this as a checklist to get to work.
Breaking this reading down:
Sun-Day ☀️ is a sacred day of powerful energy like the Sun itself. A great time for setting intentions, making magic, and manifesting. It’s the New Moon during the Winter season, a time to rest, reflect, and plan.
The Curandera (Healer or King in classic tarot) of Air (Swords in classic tarot) is a card of wisdom and leadership. Of putting thought to action successfully and finding peace and clarity of mind. This is also a card of determination and willpower.
Rosemary is an herb that can be used to support memory and clear our head. To help us find headache relief and stimulate not only our mind but our hair follicles as well.
Blue Kyanite aids in communication and understanding, and encourages one to speak their truth. Kyanite cuts through fear and blockages. An excellent stone for attunement and meditation, it stimulates intuition. Kyanite instills compassion, calms the mind, and never requires cleansing.
The Chariot is a card of intentional forward momentum. It asks us to not only make a decision but to take action towards the outcome we desire. It is about being goal-focused and in-balance with Nature and the Elements in your everyday life.
Cedar is a tree that has the ability to survive and spread to create forests because of its adaptability. It thrives in diverse conditions. Its alternative name Arborvitae means Tree of Life which is fitting, this is a plant full of vigor. It can be used to cleanse, bless, and protect the home.
Tiger’s Eye is a stone that holds both Earth and Sun energy. It is a grounding crystal that protects and aids in observation. It assists with accomplishing goals and promotes courage, integrity, and the right use of power making it another great stone for leaders.
