The next card is "Daffodil: Trust in Your Power (reversed aspect). We cannot expect others to believe and trust in ourselves if we do not. There is a responsibility to use our creativity and innate beauty to influence the environment around us. It is easier to be a follower than a leader, but there are times when we must step up and take charge, so doing (instead of trying) is encouraged. We do not develop confidence in ourselves or Inspire confidence in others if we refuse to acknowledge our own talents and abilities. Things are unclear sometimes because we are not using our creativity while trusting in ourselves. We are recognizing the beauty and power that lives within each of us with this message from the daffodil. The daffodil is the harbinger of spring! A new season is upon us all! Daffodil medicine awakens inspiration and creates and restores the higher self. We must remember that we have more power and creativity in situations than we may believe and with power, comes tremendous responsibility. Each of us need to act on it with trust. When creativity and trusting in our power, we then can allow it all to work for the highest good of all. You and I have more power to change things than we sometimes realize. So, surrender to the divine, and those around us all will respond in kind- as long as we believe and trust in ourselves and our ideas! Examining the Self in a new light is what the daffodil asks of all of us.
The next card from Ted Andrews is with the Pine Tree. Pines and evergreens are coming to highlight our individual and collective emotions, providing protection and easing along the way. Pressures, especially around issues of guilt or shame, are called to attention for healing. Pines teach that so long as we do what we know is right for us, regardless of how others respond, everything will work out for the best. Decisions and choices will be easier to make now with less emotional involvement. Those that have tried to manipulate and apply pressure will be less about opposition or influence. When we do not give in to the pressure of guilt, we serve and will become stronger as it becomes easier to resist going down that chosen path each time, thereafter. So as we can see this card is really saying to make our firm decisions (and yes, even indecision is a whole and complete decision), and to not allow our "people pleasing" parts of the Self appease anyone, anything, anymore. We must do what we want to do from our heart and from our passion, for it is what is needed to be expressed now. FOCUS ON YOUR PASSION!
From these three cards, I can see that yes, we all know that we're flowing and evolving. It is now time to remember that everything is really simple and easy. That IS flow. By going downstream, we each become a leader of our own life (no matter what people think of us). May we each trust in the power of our creativity and our sovereignty. With this conscious living, balancing the emotions will become much easier while we follow through with this plan of action. True power resides in the ever rippling ((( Now ))).
The topper card is "Reward Yourself," from Doreen Virtue's "Daily Guidance from Your Angels Oracle Cards". It says: "You've been giving a lot of yourself lately and it's time for you to receive. Make the time to reward yourself in a meaningful way. This balance of giving and receiving is essential to keeping your energy, mood and motivation at a consistently high level."
With balanced giving and receiving, we will feel the balance of our emotion. The bottom card (also from the same deck by Doreen Virtue) is "Assertiveness." It reads: "This situation can be healed gently and with love as you've requested, yet there's also need for your strength and truthfulness with others with the other people involved. We will stand right behind you as you speak your truth giving you strength and guiding your words." As you can see, the Doreen Virtue cards fully support the spread in the middle.
Flowing involves trusting enough in our power and being more in alignment and therefore, more balanced with our emotions. With Mercury, Jupiter AND the Sun being in the zodiac sign of Libra at this time of ((( Now ))), we are also synergistically being called to find balance, order and fairness as we relate with our-Self and others. Venus, which rules lovely Libra (Venus being about love, relationships, REWARDS, abundance and self-worth) is also energetically saying in this astrological transit that this is a highlighted time for all of us to effortlessly align with the beauty, softness, courageousness and Power of who we know we are and whom we are each becoming. Like the Lotus from the muddy water, may we continue to arise, flinging off any mud that remains and bask in the bright light. Remember as a side note, that "No" is a whole and complete sentence. Do only what you feel is right and you will never be led astray from what your Soul truly desires, this hour, day, month, year- in this life- or any other.
This layout is true in the here and ((( Now ))) of whenever you see it. :)
