Six of Wands and Ace of Cups
This week we have a Full Moon in Virgo on the 18th. We are releasing any heaviness that is holding us down and we are focused on living bravely and boldly. Through the message of the cards, we let ourselves feel full of vitality and love.
The Six of Wands depicts a joyous scene. We see a Phoenix rising from the ashes below as it dances in the stars above.
The Six of Wands is also referred to as the card of Victory. It is about fighting for what you want and finally being victorious. It is about taking on an obstacle and winning in the end.
This victory could vary greatly depending on where you are in your life. It could be a milestone you need to pass, a relationship hardship to overcome, or a difficult spiritual phase to step through.
Whatever your hardship, this card is here to tell you that you will make it through to the other side. With hard work and passion, you will come out more successful than when you started.
There has often been a struggle before this card appears, so we need to take a moment to rest and celebrate before moving forward. We should feel proud and take time to honor the work we have put into achieving our goals.
Pain and confusion are usually present on our path to success. We may feel both excited for our victory and exhausted from the fight. Please know that you are amazing for all you have done so far and the Universe is cheering you on.
This card also reminds us we have always made it through our most difficult days. No matter how hard, we were able to survive. So when something comes up in our future that seems too hard to overcome, we are filled with the strength from our past to know that we can do anything.
The Ace of Cups is our next card for this week. It indicates a time of love and compassion, where we tap into our ability to love and be loved. The Universe sends us large amounts of divine energy because we are more open to receiving it.
With the Ace of Cups and the Full Moon in Virgo, we let go of our need to control things we cannot control. Instead, we tap into the flow and accept life as it is. We feel a sense of freedom and trust.
A zen saying comes to mind for the Ace of Cups: sit quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself. We do not have to control things or make things happen. Spring comes by itself.
A way to work with this card is through quiet medication. Sit still and allow your heart to receive the messages it needs to hear. Know that you are protected and the flow of the Universe is there for you at all times.
How will you use this energy this week? Will you listen to the message of the Six of Wands and Ace of Cups? I hope you do because so much love is around you if you choose to let it in.
Mantra for the week: I rise like a Phoenix from the challenges of life. I trust love to lead me where I need to go.
