3 OF COINS: Take time during the month to do something that you enjoy, something that you can lose yourself in. There may be many distractions coming up, so the best thing to do is to focus on an enjoyable activity, hobby, or work that gives you pleasure. This will be far better than paying attention to fear-mongering news programs or newspapers. It is ok to follow the news, because we do need to be aware of what is going on in the world, but do not allow it to put you into a fear-based state that you carry around with you. Stay in a calm, peaceful state, and this will be projected outward. You can spread positive energy just by keeping yourself grounded and focused on peace.
THE EMPRESS: As we continue the transformation from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius, we will see more and more the impact of the Divine Feminine energy, which was suppressed for so long. We are entering a time where the patriarchal and feminine energies will balance each other. The kind, nurturing, and supportive feelings will start coming to the forefront as we move along our paths. Feel this beautiful sense of helping others, providing aid when needed, and spreading unconditional love as you go about your day. We are on the brink of something wonderful, despite all the negative events that are occurring. Let the Empress energy fill you, bringing you love, support, and guidance.
2 OF SWORDS: Blinders continue to be removed as we learn more about what is truly happening in our world. Seek out the truth, being careful to use discernment when exposed to new ideas and information. Do not be afraid of what you might learn; sometimes the truth is hard to accept. You may have a choice to make—blindly follow what is being told through the mainstream media, or strike out on your own, researching other sources of information. Buddha said: “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.” We are at a point where this is truer than ever, so we need to keep our eyes and ears open, and be willing to not believe all that is broadcast.
QUEEN OF WANDS: With all the changes that we are being confronted with, it is important for us to be self-confident and self-assured as we deal with whatever comes our way. Do not let anything stand in your way of seeking out the truth, of following your own path, and staying true to your inner self. Let your authentic self come forth and trust that you will be given the courage and fortitude to handle any difficulty or issue that arises. We all have the Queen of Wands energy somewhere within us; we just need to believe in ourselves and have faith that we can overcome any obstacle that lies in our path.
TRENDS FOR THE MONTH: As change, uncertainty, and a bit of chaos continue to exist in our world, we need to take care of ourselves so we do not get caught up in this whirlwind of negativity. Refrain from getting too immersed in the mainstream media, choosing instead to focus on something that you enjoy. This is a far better distraction than getting caught up in information that may be questionable. Let the Empress energy surround and engulf you, so you can freely give love, kindness, and support to those who need it, as well as to yourself. Pursue the truth, remembering that all will come out eventually. Draw on your own inner strength, letting your confident self shine through. Now it is more important than ever to trust and believe in ourselves, knowing that we can make a difference in the world.
