Today’s Tarot reminds us to take short frequent breaks from our hectic schedules to replenish our energy. Even if it’s a cat nap 😊 or a walk round the block or some deep breathing for a few minutes, our bodies will thank us for it.
If there’s any word that’s being used liberally of late it’s the word “toxic” another word for poison or harmful. People are talking about toxic relationships, toxic work culture, toxic environments, toxic substances and we all know what it’s doing to our Lives. What we need more of in our lives is ways to detox, purify, cleanse. It’s easy to blame, point, walk away from the toxic, but are we truly free from the toxins? In some ways too we are all equally responsible for the toxicity with our own traits, thoughts, habits, behaviour patterns and addictions.
This week’s cards urges us all to step towards the path of purification. In whatever way you resonate with it. Do you need to drink more water? Do you need to eat more vegetables. Give up smoking or drinking? Exercise a little more? Meditate regularly? Not indulge in gossip and negative talk? Do more voluntary work? Be more charitable? It starts with by reflecting on the toxicity within us all, becoming aware of it. And then making an active effort to purify our own mind, body and souls.
“Purity is light. Not just an ordinary light. But a transcendental light” Lenz
Pardon the twins on my desk today. This is their way of demanding attention. Or may be drawing attention to the message of the Tarot to this energy phase . The old is honoured and the new is welcomed. As Mercury goes direct on September 23rd a lot of blocks are released, and things speed up again in the coming weeks. Money matters, business plans, properties, taxes, profits, incomes, expenses, increments and gains come to the fore, as we start thinking and discussing the material aspects of life. A good phase to release, declutter and give away what you no longer need and start planning and focussing on what you do want in your life. Remember patience is the key here.
