Angelic Tarot Week Ahead Message
Conflict is in the stars for the week ahead with two Pluto squares and that is reflected in the cards to give us a heads-up. Venus, Libra’s ruler, is the grace-bringer who will help us stay heart-centred enough to be able to preserve harmony as well as guard our souls from toxicity. This toxicity is mainly flowing through media and social media channels (10 of Swords) so staying away from those and spending time in Nature (Venus) will definitely be helpful.
There will be much in the ‘noose’ about finances and the fear-mongering around money will escalate. It will therefore be more important than ever to connect to our true values and our true, inner abundance (more Venus themes).
What can we do to guard our souls?
We want to avoid adding to the collective fear in the week ahead. Avoid getting pulled along by any narrative (or counter-narrative). Better still, we can all do our part by transmuting any fear that flows through us into love. So how can we make sure we do as much of that as possible in the week ahead?
The strategy may not be exactly the same for all of us but it will involve some kind of prayer/meditation practice. Movement meditation and praying while walking or working with our hands may work best for some of us while Mars is in Gemini. The energy is likely to be restless and those with overactive minds may find it almost impossible to do sitting meditations.
Like last week, the quint is 35/8 Strength. Strength (Leo/Fixed Fire) and together with Venus to guide us, we once again have a very strong emphasis on centring ourselves in and living from our hearts. Love is how we win this war. We may not have started or ever wished to be part of this war on humanity but we still have to fight until it is over. To concede defeat is unthinkable in terms of consequences for future generations.
Call on Archangel Ariel for strength and courage.
Quote of the Week
“A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.“
—John Stuart Mill
