Art and Lust
This week starts with the Lionsgate portal on 8/8. This magical energy has the ability to open us up, inspire new ways of thinking, and evolve our collective consciousness. We may also receive psychic downloads and should be on the lookout for messages through our dreams and signs.
Our cards align with these potent vibrations. Both cards are Major Arcana cards, which speak at a louder volume. Both cards also point to the process of creation, being present, and stepping into our power.
The first card we are working with is Art. This card is about combining and harmonizing forces in our life. It is about taking smaller pieces and creating something larger through collaboration and creativity.
The Art card features a beautiful figure blending fire and water to create a new and more powerful substance. She is practicing the ancient art of alchemy and is calling us to do the same.
Reflect on your life and ask yourself: How could I amplify my voice by working with another person or entity? What could I grow or deepen through a partnership? How can I combine my various passions into something bigger and bolder?
I was once working with a client who received this card. I shared with her that it pointed to a powerful partnership with an artistic flair that would bring her great success.
She did not give many details about her life during the reading but messaged me a few weeks later to tell me she had quit her job to go full-time with her own vintage clothing business. In this new career, she partners with many other artists and entrepreneurs and became quite successful.
The Art card had given her the confidence and push needed to take that risk. It is a card that inspires our own creativity and personal growth.
How does the card’s imagery and process of alchemy inspire you? What do you feel the Art card calling you to do? How can you take steps to embrace your creative energy?
Our next card this week is Lust. The woman on this card has a lust for life and holds great confidence. She knows she has always made it through her toughest of days. She takes the skills from her past and uses them to propel herself forward.
Most anxieties and fears are rooted in untruths. Most of what we worry about will never happen. We often make up imaginary situations that keep us from taking action.
The lady of Lust has stopped believing in anxious falsehoods about herself or the future. Instead, she believes in her own strength to weather any storm and this makes her very brave.
The woman on the Lust card is drenched in gold, fully embracing her body as she rides a multi-headed lion. She is both in control and out of control at the same time. She is full of pleasure and power.
How can you embody this card this week? How can you indulge without fear? How can you live in the moment and go after your desires?
We can embrace the Lust card by connecting to our five senses. Find a time to sit still and connect to what you feel, taste, hear, see, and smell. Marvel at how you can do all five at once. Warm light on your skin, the taste of salt, the sound of the breeze, the colors at sunrise, and the smell of grass.
Your brain is always processing these things but are we present to it? Connecting to our senses is a fast way to be more in the moment and find gratitude for the here and now.
Under the influence of Lionsgate and the cards, we are called to open up, free our thoughts, and listen to our hearts. Let the vibration of this time push you into the next phase of your life.
Mantra for the week: I embrace creativity and collaboration. I celebrate being alive.
