I pulled a few cards this week asking “What message wants to come forth for humanity?” We received the High Priestess and Nine of Wands with the Ace of Pentacles as a foundation card.
Sometimes I’ll pull a foundation card to see the theme or “foundation” of a reading. The Ace of Pentacles would indicate that this week’s message has to do with the material world – meaning our work, body or money. Its message deals with these tangible things that exist here on this physical plane.
The High Priestess and Nine of Wands indicate that while it may seem like there is a long path ahead of you, it is important to have faith that all the answers that you’re searching for already exist within you. There’s no need to work yourself so hard.
The story that many of us grew up with is that “you need to work hard to earn a living/lose weight/etc.” It implies that there must be a struggle for a reward; however, the High Priestess asks us to approach it a different way. Perhaps, we can take time to go within and really listen to what feels aligned for us.
I struggled with exercise for the longest time. I hated it because I would do what everyone else told me to do and go to the gym or go running. Recently, I put it out into the Universe that I wanted to find a way to exercise and stay healthy that was affordable and that I enjoyed. Shortly after that, I remembered a yoga studio that an acquaintance had mentioned a few months earlier. I started going to yoga there, and I love it. Exercising isn’t a chore anymore; plus, my body has started to tone up, which it never seemed to do when I was going to the gym.
We don’t have to struggle. Our intuition is connected to something so much bigger than we can even imagine, and we can work with that connection to help us. Take a moment to step back If you feel like you’ve tried anything and everything, but aren’t seeing any progress towards a goal. Give yourself a break and turn it over to the Universe. Then, go do something that you enjoy – go for a walk, read a book, watch Netflix, etc. Stop trying to force it to happen and have faith that the answer will come when it is ready.
