It is now mid week, so I'll keep it sweet & simple. This week’s elements & themes are: Two of Bottles, Cactus Quartz, & Five of Bones, aka Those Falling in Love Feels, Ancestral Healing, & Purification. Spring is officially in the air & in our bones!
Two of Bottles
Whenever anyone schedules a reading with me & their inquiries are in the realm of love & romance, it is common for there to be a sense of hesitation or downplay of vested interest. This has everything to do with vulnerability & how we’ve been taught, especially as babes hailing from the blessed margins, that there are More Important Things. But Matters of the Heart are always important.
Two of Bottles is all about sweetness & connection & allowing those Fall in Love Feels to roam about in your body & spirit. This doesn’t have to be specific to a situation, but allowing such a seed to begin growing is miraculous. Nobody gets through this life without a heartbreak or slew, & each time you decide to get back on the proverbial horse of Dare to Fall in Love, it is because you’ve decided to trust yourself. Again. This is Hope knocking on your door.
The fact that this card was drawn right after Two of Bottles is a continuation of the narrative of healing the soil in which your hopes & dreams are bring planted. We first learn about love, life, & relationships most often within families of origin, & sometimes it takes more than a while to unlearn those lessons. Cactus Quartz wants to highlight the connection between inherited unresolved traumas within your belief systems about love (how to give it, how to keep it, how to receive it, how to show it, & why/why not you deserve it, for example), & that now is the time to do some healing work about it.
Pay attention to whatever things are bubbling up for you as you read this right now…or take a deep breathe & ask yourself where your healing attention can be applied--that’s where your Spring is coming back. If any of this feels overwhelming or like too much, know that ancestral healing always comes with it’s own support systems, your ancestors themselves. They’re not gonna leave you to figure out things on your own. All you gotta do is pray or ask them for help. Do some candle magic, buy your altar some fresh flowers, talk to them the next time you’re sitting in the gentle caresses of Spring-is-around-the-corner sunbeams, or start generating gratitude lists so they know what you like.
Five of Bones
This is where the work comes into play. Five of Bones is all about releasing, letting shit go, & surrendering to the process. Often this card can be about lack, scarcity, & the opposites of abundance, but that is not the whole message. The image is of a skeleton hand holding sand that is falling through the grip. The harder this hand tries to hold on, the faster the sand falls through, which means that even if you want off this ride, it has now taken on a life of it's own. The best thing to do is ground yourself, & keep clearing your energies!
The Ancestors are coming through with this card to make sure that you let go of the crumbs you've been clinging to because it was all you thought you could have. There is a bounty on the way that even these skeleton hands can hold, a bounty that won't slip through, a bounty that you can share if you choose to do so, a bounty you've always kinda hoped would come, & a bounty that is already yours! Let the last of those teeny tiny grains fall through your hands, then dust them off, turn your sweet face to the sun, & get ready to hold more than air.
Sending your seedlings so much love,
I'm so happy & excited that so many of you are sharing & reading the work I am creating! I'd also really like to receive some $$ if you got it! Know that $5 goes real far in my life.
