Hello beautiful people,
Welcome to your weekly post about the energy of the week, what it will be like, and how to take better advantage of that energy.
Let us begin.
Position One: The Lesson
Death = boy am I sick of seeing this card show up in a reading. Here we go again. Death as the Lesson card. What can I tell you?
Hmmmm. Well I can state the obvious. Change is waiting for you across the threshold.
I dare you take that next step. I dare you to break free and shine.
Nothing is holding you back at this time. Well, maybe the Ego, but it is always there.
With the Death card in place, the other two sisters are never far behind (The Devil, The Tower).
They love to mix things up in our world. They love to party all over our face. ;-)
And when it is finished they do not clean up the mess they have left. Who is responsible?
This party sounds like a total drag.
If you are anything like me (mutha-fucking OCD), then you will find yourself walking around with a trash can in one hand and broom in the other, trying to clean up as the three sisters party like it is 1999.
Do not worry.
The lesson is not about the cleaning up. It is more about the waiting for things to settle down. Besides the three sisters can’t keep up the party for too long. They do desire their beauty rest. Know when to strike. Know when to clean up and when to let it all fall apart. That is the key to productive transformation.
Position Two, Three, and Four: The Details
Seven of Cups, Nine of Coins, Six of Wands = with the transition of Death, there is peace. We “break through the sludge” which is created by our own thoughts and actions. We move forward. With new eyes we return to what is known, looking at it from a different perspective. “Breaking through the sludge” is an awful process that takes so much energy and forgiveness.
Forgiveness towards those who we think have hurt us.
Understand that with great transformation comes great pain. Pain from what was lost. Pain from what was given up.
Even as I write this my spirit guides are standing close to my side. They understand that with transition there can be a state of confusion.
Confusion regarding our own state of existence.
There are moments we come out bright. There are moments we come out dark. Either way we break through victorious.
We live to see another day. We strive to be a stronger person.
When we go through the process of “Breaking through the sludge”, we are actually understanding the lesson from a past karmic event. I like to think we are burning that karmic lesson up with the fire from our spirit. This week may be a challenge for those who wish not to change.
For those who wish to stay the same.
If you find that you are in this mind set, then know that eventually your spirit and body will catch up to each other. Things will feel whole again. In the process you will also understand the lesson that needs to be learned. Whether you choose to deal with it or not is up to you. I can advise you that you have the strength to move forward. The power to change and rearrange. Like a strategic witch. Conjuration begins with sacrifice.
Sacrifice of what is not needed anymore.
Until next time.
