2 of Cups, Love, and 4 of Cups, Luxury
There is so much energy in the cosmos this week. With the Blood Moon Total Eclipse on Friday, we will be feeling a heightened sensitivity to our emotions and the emotions of others.
There will be a lot of things coming to the surface and a lot we will let go of through this eclipse energy. The cards we pulled are very supportive and will help us through the powerful vibrations this week.
The 2 of Cups is all about, well love! It is about loving ourselves first and foremost before anyone else. It is about self compassion and speaking lovingly to ourselves.
It is also about falling in love. This could be with a person, a job, a place or with ourselves. We may feel uncertain if this will happen for us but the 2 of Cups is here to tell us that we deserve it and it is coming for us!
It might not mean you will fall in love with the person of your dreams tomorrow but it does mean that love feelings are on the horizon.
Feeling deserving of love has a lot to do with self love. Self love and self acceptance are a major part of any relationship. If those things have been hard for you in the past the 2 of Cups will make it a little easier.
What once felt difficult to accept about yourself will feel more manageable this week. You will feel a lightness that will help with love in all ways.
So how can you use this energy to speak with more love and kindness to yourself? How can you value loving yourself just as much as loving others?
Try taking some time to look in the mirror and say complimentary things about your body, mind and spirit. Try interrupting your selftalk 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 4 of Cups, or Luxury, is a card that amplifies the energy of the 2 of Cups. It represents a wealth of loving affection and pleasurable experiences.
Under the influence of this card, we are swimming in a pool of tenderness and support from those around us. But the message with this card is to be grateful for all we have or we might lose sight of it.
We might be so focused on gaining new love and new experiences that we forget to be grateful for the people and experiences we already have.
The 4 of Cups calls you to take stock of all you have and let the love already present wash over you. So many of us are blessed to have amazing friends and family that are there for us through thick and thin.
When we count our blessings, we actually allow more blessings to enter our lives. When we focus on all we have, instead of our deficits, we attract more goodness.
Use this energy this week to be grateful for each loving person in your life. Thank them for being a wonderful support to you and share with them how much you care.
By loving yourself and others this week, you will stay in a positive and grounded energy space during the eclipse. This will help you feel calm and collected even with any chaos around you.
Mantra for the week: I love myself and those who support and care for me. I am grateful for all the love in my life and I am always open to more love in any form.
