For today's Monday Musings I chose Songs for the Journey Home by Catherine Cook and Dwariko von Sommaruga—you know me and round cards! I resonated very profoundly with all of these cards as I was typing them up—if I do say so myself! 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 three-card spread. Your reading, Your call. I'm just the messenger. I'm still offering private readings, too, so if you want to know a little more about what The Year of the Pig has in store for you, hit me up. "I'm here to help."
Left: The Homecoming
The Homecoming reminds us that life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved. The card is a solid affirmation that it will all be okay in the end and if it isn't okay then it's not the end. The experiences in life are but bridges, one thing tying into the next, one person leading onto the next. Some of these bridges span vast chasms that move us in profound ways. Some of them are so subtle we hardly notice them—yet everyone, big or small, is an integral part of our evolution and our very existence. The fact that this card is just over quarter turned is further confirmation that this is something that is ongoing, something that is cyclical and moving and ever changing, and a reminder not to try to cling to what wants to naturally evolve.
Center: Flame Creating
Weaving, dancing, and nearly upright, Flame Creating is emphasizing that you are the creator of your own destiny, the spinner of your own reality. Her message is that thoughts become things, so ensure that they are positive and optimistic. In this way you draw positiveness and confidence into your life. It's not just psychic mumbo jumbo, either. This is actually neuroscience, for the mind will always try to seek out more of what you train it to find. Make a conscious effort to direct those thoughts in a positive and empowered way, and—because like energy always attracts like energy—you will find that you notice more things about which to be thankful. After all, the road to abundance isn't paved with gold; it's paved with gratitude.
Right: Seven of Wave Songs
This is a time where there are many choices in front of you, and all of them are appropriate. How do you know which one to take? The message of the Seven of Wave Songs is to follow the desires of your heart. Those desires were put there before you were even born to lead you to your highest happiness and your deepest fulfillment. Anything else is just flotsam and jetsam. You may have to step out of your comfort zone, and that's where it gets scary, but that's also when you prove how badly you want it and what you're prepared to do to get it. While all of the choices are suitable, one is going to be the best. Take your time to find it; the card is almost upright, so you're nearly there. I promise.
