The Star and Seven of Swords
This week we have The Star and the Seven of Swords to guide us. They share their wisdom and show us how to navigate the days ahead.
The Star is a vibrant and glowing card that helps us to see how brightly we shine. The gorgeous creature on the card is basking in the light of her own power. She is nourishing her body, mind, and spirit.
The Star knows her power and is proud of all she has accomplished. Her pride does not reflect her ego but grounded confidence. And she is asking us to hold this same energy and let our self-esteem truly flourish.
Stars are symbols of hope, vitality, and new life. Through the balanced energy of this card, life can become brighter and more manageable.
What is amazing about this card is the balanced vibrations that allow everyone to feel full. The Star brings her talents and beauty to herself but she also gives these gifts to others as well.
She holds two goblets full of water, one she pours down over herself, and the other she pours back into the water. Through caring for herself, she can sustain her energy.
If she was only giving to herself or only giving to others, the energy could become depleted. But through this harmonious and symbiotic relationship, she can continue to shine.
Each of us has our own special talents, wisdom, and knowledge from our unique experiences. How can we use these gifts to support ourselves and others?
The Star also allows us to connect with the powers of the Universe more easily. Our prayer, meditation, and spiritual practice seem to be on a deeper level. We feel called to spend more time in a serene space.
This card aids in removing any negative feelings we may be holding on to about our past. Instead, we are focused on our future and feel our tenacity and strength within.
When we do this, along with giving ourselves compassion, there is a transformation. We start to give and receive love with more ease. If you let The Star card into your world, you will feel a major shift in your heart.
Our next card is the Seven of Swords. This card speaks to stuck energy that needs to be released. We have been avoiding or covering up something that needs to be examined. We are ready to address what has been plaguing us.
This could be a secret dream we need to speak into reality. It could be a bad habit we need to deal with in order to feel more whole. Or it could be a lie we are telling ourselves that is no longer working.
We are called to ask these questions and really examine our hearts and minds. We are called to take out our journals and write with deep honesty.
The Seven of Swords has us questioning our belief systems and investigating our thoughts. We are noticing our patterns and wonder if there is a better way.
We find ourselves really observing the contents of our minds. We are looking at our habits as objectively as possible and supporting our growth without judgment. Shame and guilt will block us from where we want to be, so we lead our charge with compassion instead.
Set intentional time aside this week for some serious contemplation and journaling. With love, see if you can get closer to yourself and release what no longer serves you.
Mantra for the week: I give love to myself and others with ease. I release patterns and habits that no longer serve me.
