When I have been in some of my darkest places, my saving grace has always been turning my attention to the practices that make me feel most connected. Whether it is yoga, meditation, ritual, soul friends, plant medicine, or simply breath...the things that give my spirit space, that allow me to inhale the beauty of the present moment are always my medicine. When I am connected to my inner light, I feel myself shining brighter in the outer world.
I grew up feeling like I was the timid, shy, sensitive girl and as I've grown, I have realized that all of the things that I thought made me weak are my greatest strengths. My vulnerability is my wisdom. My careful words are my poetry. My sensitivity is my intuitive guide. Everyone has brilliant and unique gifts inside and it is when we embrace and love all of our parts that we can reach our greatest potential in sharing those gifts. Remember that no one is walking your path and there are no set rules to follow because you are a cocreator with the divine. The rest of your life is still unwritten. So tune in, connect, and ignite your soulshine. And never let the naysayers dim your light. They don't know you like you know you.

It is time to foster your creativity, which is synonymous with your life force and sense of vitality. The Mushroom denotes that expansion in conscious creation is well under way. Mushrooms grow in dark and damp places. Has a new concept, connection, or business idea come up for you recently? Or Have you been working on one for awhile, waiting for the right time and alignment to put it out into the world? As we approach the end of winter, know that the incubation period is wrapping up as we come into the renewal and rebirth of Spring. If you have been desiring or planning a big shift in your life, all of your thought and energy is well invested. Continue to hold space for your passions as the time for them to come to light is approaching quickly. Stay steadfast in your work and vision so that you are prepared when opportunity comes knocking...because it will.
These cards also ask us to be receptive to new relationships, connections, and forms of abundance. The shifts that are ahead will be facilitated by the connections you make so network and be social! Be open to support and seek to actively support others as well. You get what you give.
The tiger appears on the left to remind us to be confident in our abilities, ideas, and personal power. Your confidence and belief in yourself will grow your energy field and attract the exact connections you need. We all have a unique and very important purpose so do not discredit yourself or let naysayers bring you down. In the end, only you know how to walk your path because you are the one creating it.
This is a time for expression, playfulness, and connection. Wear and meditate on orange and red colors, but if you find yourself anxious or overly excited, balance it by working with blue.
