The Empress card is the ultimate divine feminine card in Tarot. It represents that nurturing, grounding, mothering energy, deeply connected to the nature and its cycles and it is no wonder that it came up this week that is bustling with significant astrological events that influence all of the nature’s segments - including us, whether we like it or not.
The week kicks off with a Full Moon in the sign of Sagittarius that, the same way it causes tides in the oceans and rivers, also pulls out the water thats within us - which are our emotions.
Now, the primary characteristic of water is that it flows and so should our emotional states, both wanted and unwanted ones. When we don’t allow it to happen, it creates blockages in our circuits, manifesting in the reduced flow of life-force energy which is then visible in all kinds of physical, emotional and mental symptoms. As annoying and frustrating it may be to feel all those suppressed emotions bursting to the surface under the magnetic influence of the Full Moon, we can make a decision to use that so kindly given help to shed light on those parts that we pushed down, review them and find a way to let them go. A release will allow us to make a space for new intentions and visions that will reach the peak of their clarity on Friday, under the potent Sun of the Summer Solstice.
As you get in touch with your emotional body and cleanse all the mud that kept you further from your authentic core, take some time to ponder about following questions:
Who do I want to be from now on?
Where do I want to go?
What do I want to embody?
Be sure that the answers come from your center, instead of your Ego. Look for the space in the heart that knows. Again, it is hard to access that space if we are carrying around tons of suppressed shit. So, let go, purge, cleanse, release and then sit quietly in that freshly cleaned space and envision the direction or at least ‘a feeling of the direction’ that you feel called towards.
As the week may be especially emotionally demanding for most of the people, it can be of great aid to really focus on embodying and finding within ourselves that ‘motherly’ Empress energy. Treat yourself as a mother would treat a precious child going through sensitive times. If you have a hard time imagining what would that be like, ‘cause you didn’t have the adequate model in your own mother, ask your intuition to guide you or call upon your Divine Mother, asking for the navigation during this process. It is extremely important to stay present with ourselves while the purging and releasing take place and to take the utmost care of our bodies, checking in with them multiple times a day to see if they need more rest, more movement, hydration, a break from constant digestive activity or else.
If you have a chance, spend some time in nature this week, especially close to the bodies of water, seek to connect with them and notice the ease which everything flows, changes occur and nobody gets impatient and frustrated in the process. Each part of the song has its place and none is more valuable than the other. Both slower and faster parts are indispensable for the optimal functioning of the whole. Reflect on how you can integrate that balance in your own rhythms, or better yet - how can you learn to ACCEPT that balance, that ebb and flow of things and energies, as it already exist within, yet we are resistant and disgusted by it in our crazy (and vain) attempts to trick the nature and make machines out of our bodies… which sooner or later brings to burn out… and then we are forced to surrender.
So, better do it now.
Have a beautiful, deep, liberating week!
I love you
