Today's Monday Musings are brought to you by The Flower Speaks oracle by Marlene Rudgingsky, being as how it is springing forth, now, or at least trying to. I've got buds and shoots happening in the yarden, but I'm still bloody cold! Monthly forecast? Weekly forecast? Daily forecast? It's up to you, you know the drill! Pick the one that calls to you for a mini-reading for the week ahead, or read them all as a story-telling spread. Your reading, Your call. I'm just the messenger.
Shameless plug for my own endeavors and a reminder that I'm still offering private readings, too, so if you want to know a little more about what the universe has in store for you, hit me up. There's 20% off astrology and numerology readings until the 28th of March, use code RETRO20 at checkout, and if you get stuck anywhere during the process, shoot me a line. "I'm here to help."
This is a card of leadership. Ride the crest of that wave! If you chose this for your card of the week, your confidence is high. You can do anything you set your mind to achieving. If you're asked to assume a position of authority, take it, for you more than have the capability. Never forget that others are watching you, they're learning through you. Lead by example, particularly this week and particularly after Thursday (no that's not random, yes, there''s a reason for it). Just make sure that you create time in your life for you and the things that are important to you, for when Sunflower appears, it's easy to spread yourself too thinly and take things too earnestly. Be serious about your commitments and obligations, sure, but never about yourself.
This is a card of abundance. In my day job I've been writing a lot about the Law of Attraction, and while I think that a lot of the new-agey stuff out there about the LOA is garbage, there is some validity in this tenet. Like energy always attracts like energy and if you are down on yourself and you're focusing on what is going wrong and what you don't have, then that's the reality in which you're going to live. Orchid is reminding you that abundance is an energy, and all energy needs to flow or it becomes stagnant. If this is your card, it's reminding you that there is always something to be thankful for, there's always some kernel of positive energy in every situation. If you're not seeing it, then you're not looking hard enough. Let your thoughts be a channel through which positive energy can flow, and manifest the abundance that is waiting for you to realize how close it is.
Right: Bleeding Heart
I absolutely adore bleeding hearts and I just wish they would grow in my yarden, but that's another story. This is a card of sacrifice, but you have to remember that one definition of sacrifice is to make something holy by giving it away. Sacrifice is a pause, a consideration, a release of energy. What do you need to release? What are you hanging onto that is cluttering up your space, or bringing you down, or inhibiting your progress? What is in your life that is not bringing you joy, yet you're still attached to it? That's where the sacrifice comes in. Whether it's clinging to a toxic relationship, holding onto stuff you don't use, or carrying on with a system of belief that no longer feeds you, it's time to let go. Doing so opens up the space for new energy. Why not surrender to the changes and let that void be filled with the Orchid's energy of Abundance?
