We’ve got a lot of empowering self-determination and creative energy today as Mercury stations direct, although we’re still in its shadow for a while.
Which is great! Because we’re in the very beginnings of the action stage, moving toward our new life path or goals.
After clearing old patterns, planning, and establishing our foundation, we take our first baby steps into the great unknown.
The fears are there. The confusion is there. And distractions galore, tempting us to derail all we’ve prepared for.
Tests and challenges are expected any time you move into something new, authentic, or self-empowering. So you can actually be glad to see them. If you weren’t embarking on something completely worthwhile, there wouldn’t be any challenges at all.
The King of Swords showed up as the Tarot Card of the Day. This card is all about taking your power back. This is “a message to… decide right this moment to take initiative, or some sort of action, to follow your pioneering ambitions. They won’t leave you out in the cold.” It doesn’t get any more clear than that, my friends.
It’s also a message to find support or collaborations, while remaining independent. Maybe it’s a psychic, life coach, a business coach, a support group, or a community who has the same passion as you.
I’ve always been a lone ranger. I prefer working as a solitary witch. But I’m forced to admit that I couldn’t live my life dream without daily support from my Spirit Guides, as well as my very genuine, very open, very real witchy, magical friends.
Success simply isn’t possible without those true beings to hold you up as you struggle and flounder around in the puddles.
So the advice for today, and the rest of this week is to make a solid commitment to your new life path or goal, and invest in a support team. Alright? Everyone okay out there? I’m rootin’ for ya!
May your soul be infused with magic and may you truly enjoy your existence. With love, Elizabeth aka Intuitive Fish
