We are feeling so stuck. I know for myself personally, I’m a homebody, and there are a lot of aspects I love about being at home. My son went through 3 years of treatment for leukemia and he still has some health issues going on, so we try to stay home as much as possible and take very little risk. No matter how you feel about what’s going on in the world, it is taking a toll us all. We have been restricted for so long… but this… this is the age of Aquarius, and we are now moving into the sign of Aquarius. Hopefully we will see some progress in many aspects of life. We have work to do. This is a time to put your ideas to paper and get creating. Get innovating. We’ve been in survival mode for too long. We need to see the way forward and work together to get there. We need to help each other. We need to demand a new way. Quiet your mind and see how you can shift your perspective, and what inspirations flow. Worrying is just a distraction, and serves no positive purpose. Quiet your mind. Centre your body. Shift your perspective to one of positivity. We are what we wish for. If you believe in magic, you will surely have a magical life. Have courage and strength. Make sure to take care of yourself. You can overcome this depression. The day will come when you have clarity, and you feel happy. Harness that and try to feel it more in your days. Remember that everything is going to be ok. It’s all going to be ok. The Garnet is helping you to get your spark back, to ignite your beautiful flame. It gives us the energy to move forward, create, love, and enjoy life. Our dreams really can come true, so make sure you keep dreaming. Dream and visualize all the time. Also, pay attention to dreams. I feel like people will be having lots of dreams, visitations and astral travel experiences. The Garnet wants us to stop thinking negatively about our lives. Embrace what we have. Keep building it up and staying positive, especially when it’s hard. Our dreams are coming true, so stay positive! Do your manifestations on the moon! Manifest your life everyday through your choices and actions. The Garnet to me feels like romance.. I feel like there will be lots of physical romance, but also feeling romantic about our lives… truly learning to love them deeply. That’s a beautiful thing. Can’t wait to see what the cards say!
Wow… these cards. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw the open window and all the rose petals on the last card… so much romance! You have to be willing to do things your own way.. a new way. You have to go against the grain and do things different. You might have to walk the path alone. It might appear very lonely. In truth, your path is filled with stars… with magical opportunities, love, happiness, joy… and you are making your way to a new reality… to an open window where you are free… where you are loved… where nobody wears a mask (figuratively or literally). The Elephants are a symbol of your hard work. You’ve stayed in line and done your part. You put the work in. With the Age of Aquarius, we are in a new time, and we need to challenge the status quo. We need to reinvent, reinvest, and reignite our passion for our lives and this planet. We are stuck because we’ve been forced to conform for so long, and it’s not going to be easy to break. It’s going to take time to travel a new journey, but it is Time to Go. It can feel scary taking a new path. It can be hard to let go of what we thought we knew… of what we thought was “right” for us. Everything isn’t lost though. In fact, nothing is truly ever lost. We always carry love in our hearts, like beautiful rose petals, that you can let flow anytime you feel. We are always connected on a deeper level, even when something appears to be gone. Look at everything you’ve learned. You’ve gained your wings. You are ready to fly… and your almost there. Your energy is electric and glowing, full of love for self. Walk forward with confidence and bravery. You are almost there. Bless where you have came from. Be thankful for the lessons and wisdom. Your destiny is calling you… be ready to answer the door. If there are things in your life, or people, that aren’t positive influences, it may be time to leave them behind. Endings are always a sign of new beginnings. Change your life and make space for new. If there is a situation you feel the need to leave, this may be your sign. What is going to be, will be. Destiny is always charting it’s course. Follow the signs and guidance, and be brave to make the choices that are best for you. Truth Be Told is about expressing your honest truth. This card makes me feel like people will be expressing emotions towards you, and how fitting with Valentine’s Day approaching. Accept your life. Come to complete acceptance of where you’ve been, and where you are going. Stop living in denial over the past. It’s time to get clear. The best policy is always an honest one. You can’t live an authentic life if you have things to hide. There is freedom in sharing the deepest parts of yourself. There is so much love for you, when you are willing to open up. The Owl is about communication, so expressing yourself is important, but it’s equally important to listen. Be confident and be you. Peel off any layers of fear or insecurity, and be authentic and gloriously flawed, and Spirit will answer with miracles. This is about letting go of limiting beliefs, especially about being deserving of love or money. You deserve to make your life a priority and fill it with abundance. Say no to dishonesty in all forms. Always acknowledge the truth. Set yourself free. Fall in love with your life, and be ready for the door. Have a beautiful week!
