Happy FriYay, my friends! I hope you are well. We are well and truly in eclipse season now and some of you may already sense the energies of the next eclipse. Don’t worry if you feel a bit like you’re inside a big pressure cooker – That’s because you are! View it as an opportunity for BIG alchemy to take place! For this week’s individual readings, we are working once again with the Original Rider Waite Tarot. So go ahead and pick a pile above for your FREE Tarot Messages for 8-14 May!
Don’t neglect reading the general guidance below, before scrolling down to your individual reading. This is because the individual readings tie in with the week ahead message for the collective.
General Guidance for the Collective
“We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.”
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Whenever we find that we suffer from compassion fatigue, we need to retreat. It is common for empaths to suffer from compassion fatigue when we neglect to engage in daily self-care. We forget that it is possible for us to suffer too and that the suffering often creeps up on us, seemingly out of nowhere.
Much of it doesn’t even belong to us but because we are empaths, we take it on anyway. Then it festers in our energy field for a while until a painful ‘boil’ forms. This is energy that needs to be released from your energy field as soon as you discover it. And it is only there to start with because you neglected your daily psychic hygiene.
This week could be extra challenging as much will be revealed and unveiled that has been lying dormant in the collective unconscious. Things are speeding up. Having to care deeply for anybody (including yourSELF) becomes extra difficult but has never been more important.
Here’s what to do: Be very disciplined about how you use your time this week. Use none of it on doom scrolling or allowing some narrative to tear you away from your centre. Pray and meditate, if possible at least twice daily. Keep centring yourself in love and compassion and take a birdseye view of everything that is happening in the world around you. Know the times you live in… but, more importantly, know yourself and what you need to remain calm and peaceful.
Week Ahead Tarot Messages
Your mind is very active this week. It could be tempting for you to not only try to stay on top of everything that is happening in the world now but also want to put everything to rights. The challenge is to be fair and to stay grounded. Your opinions have to be grounded in reality to matter.
When they are, you can build on them for purifying your vision. And, as a visionary, you can help guide others toward a more fair society. This is part of your reason for being here on Earth this time around. So calm that hot head of yours and ask yourself often (several times a day if need be), ‘Is this really true?’
And regardless of whether or not it is, remember that it is always more important to be kind than to be right. You have the power to inspire others more through kindness than through the words you use.
Work with Archangel Sandalphon to stay grounded. Ask him to guide you to music that has a calming effect on your nervous system.
The Knight of Swords reappears in pile 2, emphasising increased mental energy in the collective. This energy is definitely putting pressure on our compassion levels with the 3 of Swords coming out next. If you chose this pile, you could be tempted to go into emotional/spiritual bypass because the pain is simply too deep.
The Page of Wands here is a sign that you must tune into your inner child this week and tend to their needs to avoid going into bypass mode. Have you been too harsh on yourself lately? Because that is totally the vibe of these cards. When was the last time you scheduled some fun and stopped worrying about anything other than having a good time? Do you even remember how to do this?
Invoke Archangel Ariel and work with her to help you remember how to thrive rather than just survive.
Emotional healing is needed this week. You are likely to find yourself extra sensitive and this increased sensitivity could make it difficult for you to stay motivated to get any kind of work done. Yet, if managed properly, this energy could serve to bring you a new begin–one that sees you feeling and acting in inspired ways.
All you need to do is tune into your feeling state and understand what is going on. Be honest with yourself about how you feel, especially if you are feeling dissatisfied and demotivated. These feelings are trying to tell you that something has to give and that you can’t stay stuck in a rut.
Something needs to be released. It’s quite possible that forgiveness is needed for healing to take place as well. So who do you need to forgive, yourself or somebody else? Call on Archangel Raphael to help with emotional healing. He can also show you what you should be studying next, to take you to the next level of aligning with your mission blueprint as a Lightworker.
