Nine of Pentacles and Six of Cups
There are a lot of cosmic shifts this week with the Pisces Full Moon, Equinox, and start of Libra Season. We start off with a Pisces Full Moon that helps us to connect to our inner magic and intuition. It reveals our dreamy and creative side as a powerful force in our lives. The cards this week show us how to use all this energy to the fullest.
Our first card is the Nine of Pentacles. This card has a phrase attached to it: you get what you give. This card is all about balance and receiving back the energy you have been putting out.
With this card, we are expecting to get whatever energy we have been sharing. If you have been putting in hard work and positivity, it will come back to you tenfold.
This could be financially, in your personal relationships, or on your spiritual path. Pentacles are all about those tangible elements, so be on the lookout for that.
This card rarely indicates sudden success from out of nowhere. The gains this card points to are from our hard work and perseverance.
What have you been interesting deeply into? How have you been putting in the time to build strong connections? Where have you been focused on growing? Your efforts will not go unnoticed this week and you will see the fruits of your labor.
Many of us are very aware of what we are missing but don’t take the time to take stock of what we have. When you notice any gains make sure to take the time to be grateful. The act of gratitude only makes our gifts grow.
The Nine of Pentacles is about observing all the big and little successes. It is about being grateful and realistic about the good things in our lives so that we can feel a sense of achievement.
Investing in yourself and others is always worth your time. Taking time to appreciate yourself and those around you will only make your life more beautiful.
Our second card is the Six of Cups and it is all about enjoying the here and now. This card wants us to know that pleasure is our birthright and we deserve to feel good. As long as we are not hurting others, we really should go after what brings us joy.
The cups depicted here are full of beautiful flowers and floating in a peaceful pastoral scene. There is warm and powerful energy radiating from this card.
The card speaks about being in touch with our sensuality. It asks us to be aware of what brings us pleasure first so we can then share it with others.
Spend time this week listening to your body and to your desires. If you have a romantic partner, share your personal desires with them. Open yourself up and connect to what feels good and life-giving to you.
If you have blocks around feeling pleasure, examine those beliefs this week. Ask yourself why you don’t make room for pleasure in your life and see if you can change that. Because remember, pleasure is your birthright.
As we take a moment to pause under the Full Moon, Equinox, and the start of Libra season, think of the ways you can bring more intention, balance, and enjoyment into your world. You deserve it.
Mantra for the week: I practice gratitude and I hold kindness for others. I allow for joy and pleasure in my life.
