The 2 of Cups and The Magus
There is so much energy in the cosmos this week. Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter are all going into Retrograde. We feel a heightened sensitivity to our emotions and the emotions of others.
There will be a lot coming to the surface. We will need to process and work through many things. But the cards we pulled are very supportive and will help us navigate these powerful vibrations.
The 2 of Cups is all about love. It is about loving ourselves first and foremost before anyone else. It is about self-compassion and speaking lovingly to ourselves, which we all need right now.
It is also about falling in love. This could be with a person, a career, a place, or with ourselves.
We may feel uncertain if this will happen for us, but the 2 of Cups is here to say it will. You might not fall in love with the person of your dreams tomorrow but it does mean that love feelings are on the horizon.
Love and acceptance are a major part of any relationship, especially with ourselves. If those things have been hard for you, the 2 of Cups will make it a little easier.
As we examine ourselves and our past under the energy of the Retrogrades, these skills will go a long way. What felt difficult to accept about yourself will feel more manageable. You will start to feel more deserving and open to goodness in your life.
So how can you use this energy to speak about yourself with more kindness? How can you prioritize loving yourself just as much as loving others?
Try taking some time this week to look in the mirror and say complimentary things about your body, mind, and spirit. Try interrupting your self-talk when you are about to say something negative.
This type of positive behavior will cause loving energy to radiate out of you. When you are in a loving place with yourself, you will attract more loving energy in all areas of your life.
The Magus comes to help boost our self-esteem and open our creative minds. It tells us we are full of many gifts and are a jack-of-all-trades.
Many of us, especially during quarantine, are gaining more skills and becoming good at many things. We are growing in our communication and refection skills.
We feel passionate about many areas but are not quite sure what direction to go in. This will be a time of taking stock all our skills and strengths and figuring out what we want to do.
Staying in one place while we dabble in a few areas will no longer work. We want to go deeper into something more fulfilling.
Spend time thinking about what direction you want to go. Invest in higher education, put in hours with a project, and do not be afraid to choose something.
You will have luck on your side as you dive into something new. You just need to decide what way to turn the wheel. Making strong choices for your future will be on your mind this week.
As we do this work, the loving compassion of the 2 of Cups will help us feel brave. We know we are deserving of fulfillment and joy, and we are setting ourselves up for success.
Mantra for the week: I accept and love myself. I am worthy of greatness.
