Today it was typical april weather with snow, hail and later quite sunny but windy. Still I feel spring is strongly on the way or under foot perhaps. I also have the feeling that the Goddesses have something to say for this week. Here are their advice!
Monday to wednesday.
The first card for this week is “Hestia / Home” and it says “Being at home in your own skin is what the Greek goddess of the hearth, Hestia, offers you today. When you are in alignment with your truest self, it’s like everything you do suddenly fits and feels right. Now is the time to also look into your domestic environment, making sure you are surrounded by beautiful things that have a special positive meaning for you.
Cleaning, tending house, and taking care of simple things are what is called for now. (“Chop wood and carry water, ” as the Zen koan puts it.) The answers to the big questions come of their own accord when you’re focused on the small tasks. The goddess Hestia reminds you that when you are at home in yourself, you are at home in the world.
Thursday and friday.
The card for the middle of the week is “Artemis / Focus” and it says “In order to fully embrace the intentions you have set in motion and your current conditions, it’s important to sieze the moment. Now is the time you can truly make your mark, as the Greek goddess of the hunt, Artemis, will help guide your arrow!
Surrender yourself to the process of whatever is calling for your attention. Immerse yourself fully in whatever needs your focus, and alow yourself the experience of deep abiding trust. If you aim true and your heart is open and pure, grateful for all the bounty that surrounds you, your deepest desires will manifest before you like magic.
The last card for this week is “Lilith / Independence” and it says “The Jewish goddess Lilith refused to be dominated by the first man, and as a result was called a demon in the stories about her that followed. These inaccurate and danaging stories as so old and repeated so often that no one recognizes how pervasive their implications are.
From another perspective, Lilith offers this lesson: No one can prevent you from fully blooming, from learning all you can, from evolving and choosing freedom. Only your conditioned thinking can do that. Be proud, be accountable, claim your power and hold it wisely,
Right now, you are in an excellent position to attract healthy, independent, collaborative relationships that truly serve the highest good. Friendships flourish with mutual respect and support. Love relationships bloom with ample space for both parties to grow. Business ventures thrive in service to the greater good.
The goddess Lilith wants to show you the way to claim a healthy self-worth and self-respect, by refusing to let your old stories keep you down. You will be amazed at how deep, meaningful, and respectful your experience becomes in all areas of your life when you make choices from a place of empowered independence.
Being at home in your own skin might be something that we need practice in doing. It’s a bit like cleaning your house, it looks and feels better the more often you do it. Not saying you should overdo it. As the card says, doing simple things, allows for the answers to come to you. Once we have the answers we need and are at home with ourselves, we can focus on the goals and tasks ahead, with guidance from Artemis we can hit our goals! Not letting old stories drag us down and be independent in our decisions is the advice from Lilith at the end of the week!
