Samhain 🎃 ~ the “season of death”, is essentially a celebration of life and finding light in the darkness. A time when the veil is thin, and we can more easily connect with our ancestors, tell their stories and hold them up in remembrance. We are urged to recognize our shadows; some of which need to be overcome and transformed, and others accepted as part of our essence. This is a season of authenticity, when we aren’t so afraid to let our quirks, tastes and passions peek through the seams of the masks we wear in an effort to be accepted. And finally, Samhain is the Lady’s whisper, reminding us that death is only one stage of the infinite cycle; two essential truths of nature are that time is not linear, and that all life is reborn. Blessings upon you and all of yours 🕯 Joyous Samhain ✨
This is not the time to slack off at work, my friends. If you’re feeling bored with your job, explore ways in which you may expand your skills and master your craft. You may catch the attention of someone who holds the key to an opportunity you never considered. The trick is, you won’t even know they’ve been observing you - if you want to succeed, pay close attention to the minor details, double check your work, and carry yourself as though somebody’s watching... because they probably are. ✨
On this quiet and rainy Tuesday, the Seven of Pentacles has brought us a message of patience, focus and contemplation, and asks us to face some hard truths about ourselves. This is a time to pause and take notice of the skills and tools we have at hand, and decide what to do with them. Have you truly achieved the goals you set, or have you half-assed it, and finished with mediocre results, if any at all? A closer inspection of the fruits of your labour may bring you to the realization that you, your attitude and/or your habits are the only things blocking the flow of success. Be honest with yourself, and decide if you are truly willing to focus all your passion and hard work on building your desired future, or if you’ll be content in forever making excuses for why you choose not to.
One of my hobbies is forest photography ~ I love looking at the world from a faerie’s point of view 🍄
After enjoying the sunrise, I felt inspired to draw a card for you 🌹 The Empress asks you to be calm and patient as you make changes in your life. You are experiencing, not just a transition, but a complete transformation. Practice self-care, avoid leaning on unhealthy crutches and habits, and resist the urge to force an outcome. This is not the time to give in to codependency or addiction. There is an important lesson during this time, showing us - in no uncertain terms - that we are not in control. Our sovereignty lies only in our choice of actions and reactions, as much as we like to believe otherwise. Take this opportunity to grow and develop into the best version of yourself ~ the current energies are pushing us to break free from the status quo, and see the world for what it truly is. It is time to decide where you stand and what you stand for, then take gentle, peaceful and loving action. Stop being a bystander in your own life; accept things for what they are, and then create your future on purpose. 🌹
