This week is all about the kind of love Etta James sang about when she crooned, “At Last”:
At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song, oh yeah
At last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up clover the night I looked at you
On Monday, we examined what it takes to evolve a relationship into a partnership and we learned that the focusing on being someone you would want to marry is key: interesting, compassionate, kind, forgiving, encouraging, and inspiring. It isn’t enough to fall in love once, a decade ago. Relationships take investment every day.
Today we examine the energy that can help carry your relationship from “significant other” to “committed” in the definition you want for your relationship.
Today’s Oracle reading is for you.
Your mid-week Oracle reading:
Past: Man Holding a Heart
Present: The Thinking Woman
Future: First Chakra, Archangel Michael
Unsurprisingly, our love reading starts with Man Holding a Heart in the past position, because this is where our love story begins: with someone holding our hearts. Love is action. It’s a verb. Where you spend your actions, your thoughts, and your intentions is where your energy gathers momentum.
Those who struggle with trusting their partner, who spend time criticizing their partner, or who discourage their partner will grow emotions of dislike, loathing, fear, and secrets. By trusting your partner, cheering your partner’s successes, and encouraging your partner’s willingness to try despite failures, you’re growing the momentum of energy in your relationship towards feelings like happiness, support, reliance, and shared intimacy. In other words, how you spend your energy within a relationship will create energy to pull your relationship towards that direction.
You’ve invested love, kindness, and excitement into the relationship which brings us to the Thinking Woman in the present position. There are times for action and there are times for understanding. The Thinking Woman represents the latter. She sees how wonderful her relationship is, knows it has potential to evolve into something more, and is weighing her options on how to get there. The Thinking Woman is a card of retrospection and thoughtfulness. She is drawing energy into the relationship to fundamentally ensure that she and her beloved make it to safe and tranquil waters.
It’s still a gamble. There’s no guarantee she’ll make it. Yet the promise the future holds is worth risking the choppy waters. The Thinking Woman is a card that asks you to evaluate how you are spending energy in your relationship. Are you growing momentum in the areas that will lead to commitment or are you growing momentum in the areas that will ultimately lead to heartache?
When you spend time acting and thinking about a certain outcome, you draw energy towards that outcome, making it even more likely. In this case, the Thinking Woman is spending time infusing her relationship with the kind of emotions and commitment she wants to get out of the relationship. Ultimately, this takes her to the future card as represented by the First Chakra, Archangel Michael.
The First Chakra card is symbolic of being rooted or anchored in security. It’s attachment that helps stabilize us and keeps of anchored. If we invest the right kind of energies into our relationship keeping the outcome we desire in mind, we can manifest the realities we seek. We can find our security and safety in the First Chakra.
