A: This month, and I kid you not, is about saying Yes to Love. It is about opening up your Heart, letting the walls that you have built up down, and being ready to give and receive love. This goes far beyond romantic love and encompasses a depth of Love that transcends this human experience.
And while it transcends this human experience, it is also very intricately weaved into it because we are here to experience all aspects of the physical world as we bring the Divine Essence of who we are as Spiritual Beings into it, and express that as our physical self.
This is a good thing! Challenging at times for sure, but such an honor to have this experience all the same ;)
This first card we see is The Empress. She is about Nurturing and Mother Energy. She represents growth and this is a card of nurturing in all its forms While there are many more meanings to this card...the purpose she serves in this reading is one of Nurturing your Heart.
The second card we see is the Six of Pentacles. This is an interesting card and can suggest Co-Dependency. I have to admit while I kind of get what it means I am also at the age where I was just a bit too young when there was so much talk about it and it was the focus of so much therapy.
When we look at it in relation to Saying Yes to Love, we can see there is a giver and a receiver. We don't have to beg for Divine Love in our lives, it is the Nature of what we are.
Can we tap into that Universal Love and say yes to it and know that we are worthy of not only receiving that love, but Being that love?
Yes we can!!! We are both a receiver and transmitter of Universal Love by our birthright.
The 3 of Swords Reversed is our Helpful Energy Card. The card shows a picture of a heart with 3 swords going through it. It is a card of Wounding. In the reversed position it symbolizes us protecting our hearts and then when ready, letting go of the pain. Forgiveness of self and others becomes a healing salve.
We protect our hearts for as long as we need to and then at a certain point we are called to release that wall of protection so we can give and receive love freely. Because this card is reversed we can see that we are in the process of reversing the wounds of the heart.
If we keep the walls of protection up for longer than it serves us, we begin to shut down and can feel our life force energy diminishing and a restrictive feeling or emptiness in our chest.
The obstacle card is the reversed 6 of wands. Upright it is a card of Triumph. Reversed it is a card of self-doubt, fear of falling short and I'll add what Spirit is showing me: fear of not being worthy. Yes I know...I'm tired of this unworthiness issue that tends to show up so often, and I guess it is around until it isn't anymore. Hopefully sooner than later right!
The final card is 8 of Wands and this is a card of movement. Simply put this means you are at a position where you can move that wall of protection energy around your heart and, in fact, most likely are already in the process of dong that either consciously or subconsciously.
I've had a significant increase in the amount of private clients this month and this reading gives me an indication as to why that is: Humanity as a whole is ready to open their Hearts even more, and February is a great month to do that!!!
What can you do to help remove that wall around your Heart?
1. Choose to live in your Spirit and Soul. Simply making a choice is very powerful and opens you up to receiving guidance and insight from the Universe.
2. Notice any imbalances in your life as far as giving and receiving love in all its many forms. Awareness builds Consciousness. As a Chiropractor I used to work with would often say: "See it for what it is and it must change."
Pay attention to any Forgiveness work that you may need to do. The Universe always supports you during forgiveness work and this month it is especially powerful to do this type of work.
3. Be willing to live your life in peace, freedom, love and cheerfulness.
Take some deep breaths in and exhale as you focus on your Energetic Heart radiating Love to every cell of your Being and back out into the Universe ;)
