Illumination: Energy for the Week of 23 September 2019
Happy autumn equinox! A separate post will address the new season’s energy.
Drawing this week’s cards, I heard “get to work.” And the phrase - perhaps the directive - reminded me of last week’s 2 of Wands and Queen of Cups with their encouragement to “make a plan.”
It may make sense that once we make a plan, the next logical step is to get to work. The question remains what that work looks like, because for some it may appear outwardly active while for others it may appear inwardly active. Both are illustrated by King of Wands* and The Hermit* from The Light Seer’s Tarot.
“The energy of this week engages with a permission that incites great activity. The activity will offer itself as a way of energizing that which is planned that it may come to life. The way of this may appear as though bold, as the leader engages with themselves and with others. The way of this may as well appear as though imperceivable, as the leader engages within themselves.”
It may be both ways for some. There may be measures of both boldness and the imperceivable. One may necessarily lead to the other. Interestingly, a song comes up here: “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten.
It’s a powerful song of reclamation; of self-empowerment. I hear “recovery,” which vibes strongly with the concept of reclamation. What is reclamation, after all, other than the recovery of something lost or surrendered?
And so, dear one…
Do you need to be bold or imperceivable - or perhaps both - this week?
How will you “get to work” from that stance?
What do you need to reclaim/recover?
How will you take action toward reclamation/recovery?
