I have been a little crazy, with my crocheting. Like, I’ve gotten started with it and suddenly, I’m whipping it out it like a mad woman.
Yes, it’s significantly opened up my creative force. Y’all have NO IDEA how many ideas come to me when I’ve got a hook and yarn in my hand. I often keep a notebook beside me. It’s insane.
But it does a lot more.
It calms me. It’s meditative. It helps me get out of my fears or frustrations or mind chatter, wherever I happen to be, to very simply get centered.
Centered. That’s how I feel after manipulating yarn into fancy knots for a few hours.
It’s nothing short of magic. And this week? You need to grab on to what centers you and make it happen, baby!
There are ups and downs in the week’s forecast, as per normal. But the feeling of environmental instability is notable. So what do you do with that? You create your own stability. I’m seeing this spread as a whole as a very clear call to be responsible for staying centered. That means not getting sucked in to drama. It means speaking from the authority of what YOU feel good about, what your inner guidance system says, regardless of what outside energy is like. You carry your own calm this week. Which works wonderfully, provided you commit to the process.
Monday, Just Breathe – The Empress, rx: Self-care, not other-care, is where efforts are best focused today. I know you sometimes hurt for others. But you cannot do much for others if you’re underperforming yourself. This is PRIORITY ONE, folks.
Tuesday, Simply Love – The Wheel of Fortune: Opening the heart is magnetic–it opens up opportunities and draws others not only to you, but your work as well. Luck today comes from huge gratitude and a loving attitude. That’s where your fortune lies. Turn up the love.
Wednesday, Challenging Times/Solar Plexus Chakra – The Fool, rx: Challenging times are opportunities to identify and reclaim your own power. In this way, what we may have called “mistakes” can be rightly considered gifts. Move slowly today, and stay rooted in your own authority to fare best.
Thursday, Share the Love – The Chariot: Don’t know which way to go? Easy. What does your heart tell you? What option is most loving? Do that.
Friday, Refusing to See – Four of Cups: Some people will be distracted by their own misconceptions today. Don’t need to be one of them! Acknowledge what’s in front of you before extrapolating on it.
Saturday, Healing Begins – Knight of Wands: Listen to your heart’s desire and take steps from that place. MOVE towards what you want!
Sunday, Coming Together – Eight of Wands: So situations are not a done deal, quite yet. But? Things are moving quickly, perhaps behind the scenes. Have faith and hang in.
Overview/Advice, Find Balance – The Emperor: Do not let the pushes to and fro–from outside, or from fears or desire–lead you off center. This week, keep grounding, keep pulling back to your center, your core. Grounding exercises, in fact, are an awesome way to recharge. Do one of those millions of “being the tree, rooting in the ground” visualizations. Get outside. Participate in physical activity. Basically, whatever brings you back into your body is worthwhile. If anything upsets or bothers you this week, look to call upon your own authority to pull back to center. Don’t react; retract until you feel steady. You have the right. You have the authority to refuse to budge until you feel solid. So do it!
Affirmation from Archangel Metatron: “Call upon me to clear and open your chakras, using sacred geometric shapes.”
Even if you’re not into sacred geometry (and aren’t interested in pursuing it at present), you can certainly look to clear your chakras. Looking at your physical needs and honoring them. Finding space for joy and pleasure, and honoring that. Feeling and enforcing your personal power, and honoring that. Feeling the love in your heart for yourself, for those in your circle and for humanity…and honoring that. Communicating your truth, seeing with your inner eye of intuition and connecting to source–honoring each bit of your life.
Perhaps it can be a week-long quest, with each day of the week focusing on a chakra. Red for Monday, Orange for Tuesday, etc. Working with gemstones or even clothing in the colors of the rainbow will help with chakras.
Meditation–especially using mandalas–or some geometrically-based art projects or mandala coloring is another perfect activity to connect to Metatron’s healing force.
In terms of thinking of this as a weekly affirmation, I’m taking as advice to take ALL our needs into account and addressing the world’s challenges from a clear, solid place. The theme of the forecast this week is all about pulling back to center and this affirmation echos that.
Center. Ground. Stay true to who you are.
