Tarot cards pictured are from the Crowley Thoth Deck
The Empress and Three of Cups
We have a New Moon in Capricorn on the 12/13th and it’s the first new moon of the year. This brings us the opportunity to set intentions and begin a new path.
The cards are bringing optimistic and nurturing energy. They call for us to manifest the best for ourselves and highlight all the potential on the horizon.
The Empress is a supportive guide. She is the embodiment of loving energy. She is the warmth and safety of a mother holding a newborn baby to her breast.
She is sturdy in her drive to rebuild and nourish. And she wants us to take this powerful energy and use it on ourselves.
She calls us to practice some fierce self-care this week. She asks: what can we do to truly nurture ourselves? How can we create more safety and security in our lives?
From a place of love and safety, we can truly thrive. We can take risks and be creative. But without this foundation, we are only surviving not thriving.
Allow the energy of The Empress to wash over you and take steps to love yourself more deeply this week. Know that unconditional love is available to you. The Universe loves and supports you just as you are.
The Empress wants us to love ourselves as we would a young child. It asks us to treat ourselves with patience, kindness, and support. To be the parent we always needed.
This type of love is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. Through this work, we are creating a rich soil from which we can flourish.
The Empress will inspire self-love during the coming week. Be on the lookout for opportunities to care for yourself and build more safety in your life.
The Empress will support motivation and consistency in your practices as well. For it is only when we love ourselves daily, that the true transformation appears.
The 3 of Cups is also referred to as ‘Abundance.’ I know this might feel like a complicated card since many of us are currently experiencing deficits instead of abundance. But the card is not just about material abundance or luxury, it is about an abundance of love and spirit.
The 3 of Cups points to the love that the Universe shares. It is given to us all and we can connect to it at any time. This love never runs out. Just like the cups depicted on the card, it is overflowing.
We also get this love from our closest friends and family. This is a rare love that asks nothing of us and gives itself freely. If we are lucky enough to experience this type of love in our life, we should take a moment to be grateful.
It is such a treasure to have true friends and family in your life. So this week, let them know how much you love them and make a special moment. The more we give the more abundant we become, so share your loving spirit as often as you can.
Mantra for the week: I love myself with the strength of a mother. And with gratitude, I call in abundance to my life.
