I hope you had a fantastic weekend like I did. Remember this, even if you didn't do anything this weekend, the fact that you woke up - alive and healthy is a blessing in itself. I want to wish my Comadre (my son's late godmother) Sami Ramirez a very happy birthday in heaven. I'm sure she and our loved ones are partying it up in heaven. God bless her and God bless you for reading this blog. 2018 continues to amaze me in ways I couldn't even begin to imagine would happen. I am blessed to see it all and to remain hopeful in this heavy-energy climate. Always remember, there is hope, even a spark can turn into a fire.
This week's 3-card general reading has been brought to you by Doreen Virtue's and Radleigh Valentine's Angel Tarot Cards. I'm getting the nudge from the angelic realm to push forth and share everyone that this is the year of hope, action and manifestations - DON'T. GIVE. UP.
The past is represented by Four of Earth. Being too frivolous or too cautious with money. Good business decisions. Giving to those less fortunate.
Life has blessed you in more ways than one. Remember giving to those less fortunate can be defined in more ways than the obvious. Perhaps someone needed a friend to be there during a time they needed someone and you made them feel less lonely. Or perhaps, you were that anonymous donor to someone who is prideful and wouldn't have accepted your help. You're confident and comfortable within your skin because you knew what it was like to not have anything (i.e. money, friends or the feeling of loneliness) - you vowed to yourself that you would help someone in need in the best capacity you knew how and you are doing so. You are enough and you are doing great. Grace is the key of giving back to those in need.
The present is represented by Knight of Water - Emotional, Romantic, Enthusiastic, Contemplative. Falling in love, or wedding proposals. The need to balance emotions. An invitation to a social event.
Have fun! You are encouraged to have fun - you work so hard. You don't realize that even the balance of play to your hard-working ethics is needed to maintain life balance. You can't just work hard all-day everyday. Make work, life and love playful. You are not your emotions - emotions are volatile and are better off not being fought off, instead - just the like the waves in the picture, "flow with your emotions" instead of fighting them and it will flow easier and out of your system faster than you can think of or obsess over. You are falling in love, whether it is with yourself, your newfound love for your partner or the new person in your life. Just go with it. Stop thinking about the future and be present. Let God and the Universe handle the behind-the-scenes detail and just enjoy life. Life is too short, treat yourself. Go to that concert, go on that trip, go on that date - YOU CAN AFFORD IT or you can call upon God to help you find the resources.
"Thank you God for sending me the resources and financial windfall to pay for this luxury in my life. I know I am worthy, loved and blessed. Amen and so it is."
The future is represented by Seven of Fire. Defend your beliefs and decisions. Stand your ground! Choose your battles wisely.
As mentioned before, this is the year of hope, action and manifestations. Be confident in the decisions you make and stand by them. There will be many who will try to convince you otherwise. This is a test of your will and how you will handle such situations. Remember that even though you are invited to an argument, you are not required to attend it. Choose your battles wisely. You can only control how you react to someone and you can not control that person, situation or their actions. STOP, BREATHE and THINK BEFORE you react. Remember that you are the bigger person and anyone who chooses to attempt to get a rise out of you is NOT worthy of your time and energy - even if this person is someone who near and dear to you. Take no shit from anyone. Love yourself, choose you first and the rest will fall into place. Respect will be reciprocated and you continue to grow. You are guided and supported even if you feel alone. Hell, you've been doing your own thing and dancing to the beat of your own drum so this time isn't any different. Be strong, be vigilant and be assertive.
