9 of Wands and 4 of Cups
This week, we again received the message of strength but in another form.
The cards are calling us to keep pushing forward in our demands for justice and creating a better world. They tell us we have what it takes to keep going.
When the 9 of Wands, also called Strength, comes up in a reading, it assures us that we have the power to get through whatever we are facing.
This card reminds us of all we have accomplished and all we have weathered. What we are going through now will be no different, we will not be defeated by it.
This card is balanced in its imagery and its message. With the Sun on one side and the Moon on the other, the wands are suspended in harmony.
This relates to our feelings of balance and stability when we connect to our core selves. The part of us that knows how truly capable and powerful we are.
Just as important as strength is trust, and this card calls us to trust ourselves. We have everything we need. We don’t need to overthink or doubt our abilities. We can put into action what is in our hearts and minds.
The 4 of Cups, or Luxury, is very much connected to the watery energy of the sign of Cancer. As we enter Cancer season, we will be swimming in the vibrations of this card.
The 4 of Cups represents affection, pleasure, and sensory experiences. We are craving touch and wanting to feel good in our bodies.
We wish to fill our homes with flowers and we want comforting food. We need the warmth of the sun on our face and our feet in the grass.
On the card, the water is following freely from opulent gold goblets. Each cup is full while also filling the other cups. There is a balance of giving and receiving that is in perfect harmony.
Under the influence of this card, we are covered in a blanket of tenderness. We need the support from those around us. Since we cannot see many of our loved ones, we want to connect through texting, calling or sending love poems.
The 4 of Cups calls us to take stock of any good we have in this moment. It wants us to let it wash over us and to use this goodness to fuel our strength.
When we count our blessings, we 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 tell them how much you care.
Mantra for the week: I am strength. I am love.
