Lust and the Princess of Disks
Our first card this week is the Lust card. It is about enjoying life and throwing caution to the wind. With this card, we trust we will always come out the other side with more experience and wisdom.
When I think of Lust, an Anthony Bourdain quote comes to mind: “Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.”
Lust asks us: What makes you feel good? What do you desire? How can you listen more to your heart and not your head?
Eat what you crave most, jump in the ocean, say I love you. We only live in this body once and the Lust card says to let go and indulge.
Trust is an essential part of Lust. It wants us to let go of our fears by trusting that we can handle stepping out of our comfort zone. We are not fragile. We will not break from doing something unconventional.
Sometimes we are too aware of what can go wrong and it holds us back from living our lives. Lust wants us to live less cautiously and start living more boldly.
The figure on the card is drenched in gold, fully embracing her body as she rides a multi-headed lion. She is both in control and out of control at the same time. She is full of pleasure and power.
How can you embody this card this week? How can you indulge without fear? How can you live in the moment and go after what your heart desires?
Lust asks us to take at least one step toward the life we want this week. Do not let fear or judgment hold you down. Take pride in your rebellious acts and see what unfolds.
Our next card is the Princess of Disks. She is most alive when outdoors and calls us to connect with the natural world. She wants us to spend time in the wilderness for healing and wisdom.
The Princess of Disks is a planner. She is hardworking, responsible, and takes care of business. She doesn’t want the spotlight but instead makes sure everything goes smoothly behind the scenes.
The Princess of Disks is here to support us during this time. While Lust pushes us into action the Princess encourages us to think about the logistics and details.
What have you been putting off? What work do you need to start? The Princess’ will help us tap into our planning mode. We will be able to tackle projects and to-do lists with more ease and vigor. We keep things moving along as we go after our dreams.
The Princess allows us to step back and slow our busy calendar in order to can get things done. We may say no to some things in order to focus on our bigger goals. And you will also feel more energized and productive if you make space to recharge in nature.
You will be able to accomplish a lot this week if you listen to your heart and give yourself the time. The cards have both the firey passion and grounded energy to support our growth.
Mantra of the week: I embrace my desires and live boldly. Through my actions, I conquer my fears.
