Five Day Tarot Forecast 4/1-4/5

Five Day Tarot Forecast(13)

Ace of Chalices | The Hanged Man | 7 of Chalices | Queen of Chalices | The Sun

I feel as though I am communicating with some water signs this week. Is this the case? Make your presence known in the comments when you feel ready to share.

You might feel “under water” this week. Trying to stay on top of it all is taking its toll. You might be doing some deep emotional work where you are going in and going under. Are you trying to separate the good from the bad? Some emotions are raw and like live wires that might make you feel some remorse or regret. You don’t have to stay there. What is real and what is illusion? You don’t have to stay stuck in the muck, don’t try to take it all with you. And why would you want to? Take the best memories and scrap the ones that didn’t turn out to your liking, why go over and over a painful memory or experience? Why not just acknowledge that it’s there, but make every effort to be in this moment instead of worrying about what you didn’t do right in the last moment?

There is a proper sense of timing for everything. Including healing from regret or remorse. Don’t try to escape from it. Acknowledge it. Heal it. If you focus on renewing yourself, you will be that much closer to a happy ending. The longer you stay stuck in the past, letting old wounds create deeper scars, and letting old ideas and unfinished business haunt you the longer you will stay stuck. Why not start fresh? Some new energy wants to come in. Maybe it starts with you focusing in on taking care of yourself. You might not be able to control what happens in this moment, what other people choose to say or do, but you can control your thoughts and you can control your actions. This week looks like you are making decisions from your emotional center. What does your heart and spirit most want to do? 

Monday: Ace of Chalices. Your body needs a little assistance. When your body flows, so does your mind and spirit. Focus on drinking pure water, eating water rich fruit and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and even some seafood, if your diet allows for it.  When you lighten your food choices, you give your digestion a break. Your emotional state is connected to how your body feels. Is everything in working order? Or is your digestion feeling stuck? Are you resistant to change? What are you not digesting emotionally? If you can work with your body and help it to flow, you will find your emotional state will flow too. Don’t resist. Let it go, let it flow. Tears are also cathartic and healing.

Tuesday: The Hanged Man. 2019 is a Hanged Man year, so no one is escaping a date with this card this year. What does this mean? You are being given the opportunity to practice your resilience. How do you respond to your life circumstances? You are more  buoyant than you might believe, if your life circumstances feel like they drowning you, use your mind to help you rise to the surface. Focus on your inner landscape. Allow yourself to be still and to float. You might want time to move more quickly on the outside, but really the fastest changes are occurring on the inside. The only action you should be taking is related to self-preservation. Are you meeting your core survival needs? There is a practical element to this card. Sometimes you need to do what you need to do to get through the day. There is no time for regretting what happened in the past and we cannot look too far into the future. Your best bet is to focus on what you have right here right now. Go for a walk in nature. Tap into what is beautiful in your environment. Plant a garden. Think about what you want to grow and develop over the next year that will be supporting you by 2020. Plant the seed now. Plant the intention now.

Wednesday: 7 of Chalices. We all have regrets. Let them go. Release the emotions that are causing you to feel pain or remorse. Do not allow your emotions to pull you down into the muck. There is good inside us all. Focus on the good. Don’t let past regrets keep you feeling stuck. You are not stagnant, you are able to flow and to move. Use your art to work through your emotions. It might end up being your best work.

Thursday: Queen of Chalices. You might feel more like yourself today. Intuitive, sensitive and aware. Your intuitive inner work helps you rise above it all. You are learning to master the spiritual and emotional landscape. Protect yourself with meditative rituals that include grounding, centering and shielding. These are tools that will assist you with emotional self-preservation.

Friday: The Sun. Don’t waste the New Moon in Aries that occurs today. Make some wishes for your future. The sun is pure fire and Aries is a fire sign. Seize the day. The world is your canvas. Paint the future you want to see. Transform your experience. Ground your ideas in reality. Your reality has the potential to be vibrant, colorful, youthful, fun, enlightening, fresh, new, expansive, joy-filled and exhilarating. Get out there and make it so.

Meditate on the Strength Tarot Card In tarot, the astrological sign of Leo is represented by the Strength tarot card. As you think of ways to utilise Leo energy in the coming weeks try meditating with the Strength tarot card. In a nutshell: There is femininity and sensitivity to the Strength tarot card and it deals with themes of power, control, patience, acceptance, virtue, and confidence. Many tarot cards that represent Strength show a cultured woman who is taming a ferocious lion with her hands. This woman isn’t scared, she’s patient, gentle, loving even when presented with adversity. The Strength card serves as reminder that some battles are your own and other people cannot help you. The woman in the image relies on her own instincts; she has a backbone and stands alone with her own coping strategies. We all stand alone at some point and have to face our fears head on. This card advises you to: be patient, persistent, and to be true to yourself. Stand on your own two feet with your head up and your heart out, and use the simple tools of self-love, self-acceptance and self-reliance to create the self-confidence you desire and the change you want. You can achieve anything. I know you deserve whatever it is you want to create.
