The Tarot deck pictured is Uusi’s ‘Pagan Otherworlds‘
9 of Cups and 3 of Cups
This week both cards speak to our emotions and tapping into our hearts. They point us to introspective and nourishing energy that helps us continue the fight for a healthier and more just world.
We are in a time of learning more about ourselves, stripping back our layers, and seeing who we are inside. We are conscious of our place in the larger world and where we fit in.
The 9 of Cups is also referred to as Happiness. The happiness we are after cannot be achieved by accumulating things or having fun experiences. It’s about knowing yourself on a much deeper level.
It points to a true understanding of what you want in life and working hard to be the best version of yourself. It’s about accepting yourself while also striving to be healthier and more evolved.
This card is about understanding our connection to all things. This understanding can lead to a deep level of emotional completion.
I know there is so much we want to change and there is so much pain in the world. But we can love ourselves for who we are while continuing to work on our growth.
From this understanding, your own personal happiness can radiate out of you. When you cultivate a positive relationship with yourself and tend to your personal needs, it can help you support others.
Through love of self you feel called to evolve. And not because you have to or because something is wrong with you. It is because you feel a deep desire to show up in the best way possible.
The 3 of Cups is about community and celebration. It is also about the magical abundance of the planet.
When the 3 of Cups appears, we feel called to honor the rare and sacred people who truly know and accept us. These are the friends who have loved us at our lowest moments and made us laugh until we cried.
The 3 of Cups foresees us spending time with those we love this week and creating special memories.
I know this is tricky during a global pandemic. So if we do gather, we need to make sure we do it in the safest and most respectful way.
Maybe we see a few friends outdoors or spend some time with family. Maybe we connect online or send a loved one a gift in the mail. Maybe we honor ourselves and make a lovely meal.
Whatever we do, we make it a joyous occasion. We find any excuse to celebrate even the smallest of successes.
It is truly a gift to have good people in our lives, especially when times are dark. Let them know how much they mean to you and honor your bond.
After celebrating with our community and feeling grounded through connection, we feel more energized to continue to show up in the fight for justice in our world.
We are taking the time to go inside our hearts this week. We are learning who we are while pushing ourselves to grow.
We are uplifted by connecting with those we love. We rejoice in the beauty of the planet and those around us.
Mantra for the week: I evolve through self love and acceptance. I celebrate life and honor my community.
