Retrospective: the Excitement of a Future Well Loved

By understanding how the past shaped the present which, in turn shapes the future, we become empowered to break tired cycles that no longer serve us and start pursuing elements that do. This week, we examined the inward transformation to help facilitate nudging your relationship into a partnership. Then we examined the energy that helps direct the relationship towards a happy commitment. Today, we spend a few moments in the future, taking in the fruits of our labor.

Today’s Lenormand reading is for you.

Your end-of-week retrospective reading:

Card 1: Birds

Card 2: Stork

You’ve controlled your emotions and successfully prevented dragging the relationship down with negative energy. You’ve nurtured the relationship like you would nurture a child. You invested in it. Planned for it. You diligently protected it. You’ve also given it the space it needed to expand itself into something encompassing, beautiful, and sustainable. Under your loving watch, it grew.

Now it is time to bask in the glow of love as your immature romance developed into a lifelong partnership. Congratulations. Can you feel the electricity in the air? Your heart’s speed increase?

It’s okay to be excited about a future full of love. To be excited about of a future of being well loved. Of loving well. Of reciprocity. Of companionship. In today’s Lenormand reading, we’re met with the cards Bird and Stork, which represent excitement and change.

It’s a call to remind ourselves on some days, especially Fridays, it’s okay to invite a little whimsy into our lives. It’s healthy to daydream about a future in which we’re happy and have found partners. It’s okay to remind ourselves what exactly we’re working towards.

So go ahead. Sit back. Kick your feet up. Close your eyes. And just dream.

Retrospective: Be guided by your dreams

On Sunday, we were called to rest our anxieties over repeating past mistakes. We were on the right track. We had learned our lessons. Yet the skepticism still lingered. How could that message possibly be for me? It’s always nice to be told that we can truly move on but how do we know for sure?

On Monday, we were told that a sign to reaffirm our path would be presented to us as our Monday’s message of encouragement was the Message in a Bottle card. For some, that card was the message in the bottle. Their doubts had been eased. This was their sign. However, not all of us were convinced. With Monday’s reading, we were told to look out for the message that our guides would craft for us. Did you see it? Did you understand it? Perhaps you thought you saw something that could have been a sign but you’re not sure.

Your end-of-week retrospective reading:

Card 1: Star

Card 2: Ship

Leaving our past behind us allows us to move forward. What are you moving towards? The Star card shines brightly for us representing our goals, our dreams, and our desires. It’s a reminder that leaving out past behind us, while painful, will not be the thing that defines us. We still have our future ahead of us. And just as travelers use the stars to guide them on their journey, it is important that we allow our goals, dreams, and desires to lead us on ours.

Just as the Star is a homing beacon drawing us in to its beauty and blessings, the Ship is a reminder of the journey to come. We aren’t so close to our dreams that we can let out commitment to achieving them falter. We do not want to lose our way.

The Star-Ship pairing is a reminder that if we allow our dreams and dreams (the Star) light our way forward, we can close that distance, and arrive at our destination.




Retrospection: Self Care and Empowerment

As the sun on Friday fades and the blood moon rises, it is time to transition into a new phase of being. Goodness knows we all need it. Last Sunday’s weekly forecast felt bleak as it talked of the wasted energy of spinning one’s wheels. But we didn’t need a weekly forecast to tell us about it, did we? We intimately felt the frustration it acknowledged in our lives. We lived it.

The prescription given was to find a way to re-energize our batteries because burnout was imminent and it was preventing us from achieving progress.  On Wednesday, we learned about how our past losses were driving an unhealthy attachment. This was the energy that was driving our burnout.

In today’s retrospective, we examine the last week. We consider our victories and our defeats. How’s it been going? Are you slowly tearing down roadblocks and obstacles? Have you started gaining new ground? Are you letting go of the unhealthy attachments that influence your behavior?

Your end-of-week retrospective reading:

Card 1: Bear

Card 2: Key

Today is a day for endings. An end to an old way of doing things. An end of an old way of thinking. An end to futile, hard work that keeps us from closing the gap on our dreams. It’s also a day for beginnings as we consider new approaches, embrace new ideas, and see progress unfold.

Once we learned the importance of taking better care of ourselves, we unlocked our potential. Friday’s Lenormand reading is about how powerful you truly are. Today’s first card is the Bear. It’s a card of raw power, energy, and greatness. Against its foes, it inspires fear. You are that bear.

You may not have felt like the bear lately given everything you’ve been going through. How powerless resistance and futility feels. However, it’s important to understand that the futility and powerlessness is a temporary state of being. A temporary state that you are shedding as you learn to take better care of yourself.

The advice given in Sunday’s forecast was to embrace the Sun: to spend time doing the things you enjoy doing. You need it. You deserve it. Replenish your energy and the obstacles will crumble away. Why? Because you are the Key to everything. The key is representative of unlocking potential… of unlocking hope… The key is the key to liberation.

Embrace the powerful, innovative, brilliant force of nature that you are.
