The Tarot deck pictured is Uusi’s ‘Pagan Otherworlds
The 9 of Cups and Page of Pentacles
Our week starts with a New Moon in Cancer. This energy is helping us become more self-aware. It is also showing us the things that might be restricting us.
Our cards support this energy as well. They are about introspection, personal growth, and hard work. We are reflecting and taking steps to accomplish small, but mighty goals.
The 9 of Cups is also called ‘Happiness.’ The happiness of this card cannot be gained through material objects or exciting experiences. It’s found through knowing yourself on a much deeper level.
It points to a true understanding of what you want in life and working to be the best version of you. It’s about accepting yourself while striving to be more evolved and disciplined.
The message of the card is that we can love ourselves for who we are while continuing to work on our growth. We don’t have to carry negative energy about the things we want to change.
We can be positive and have a growth mindset at the same time. From this understanding, your own personal happiness can radiate out of you.
Through love of self, you feel called to evolve. You aren’t changing out of a sense of shame, instead you feel a deep desire to show up in the best way out of love.
When you cultivate a positive relationship with yourself and tend to your personal needs, it will help you support others. This in turn can help you support the world.
The Page of Pentacles is a student of the Universe and eager to understand how things work. He has moved out of a place of pure self-reflection and into the physical world.
He deeply appreciates and is interested in organic materials, working with plants, craftsmanship, and any type of creating. He wants to use his hands and learn from others who are masters at what they do.
Our photo of the cards this week was taken in my garden, just above some arugula and cabbage, to highlight this earthy and creative energy.
Through self-reflection, we can tap into the hobbies and desires that would bring us joy. We are called to learn new skills and create with our minds and bodies.
What is something you have dreamt of doing but haven’t put into action? What is something new you can learn this week?
Set some small goals and try out a new skill. Work with your hands and your imagination. Doing this will be a meditative practice and a way to ignite the energy of the Page of Pentacles.
Set some time aside for this type of creative work. We are craving this nourishing energy in our lives and it will be of benefit to our body, mind, and spirit.
Mantra for the week: I evolve through acceptance and self-reflection. I am a student of the world and I’m always learning.
