Central Focus – Ten of Cups x Knight of Wands
September is asking that you take a step back and re-evaluate some things in your life. Whether friendships, relationships, finances and/or career, revisit these areas with a fine-tooth comb. There’s an energy of despondence looming, almost as if you get a taste of happiness or you see the glimmer from the light at the end of the tunnel, but it disappears as quickly as it shows up, disrupting the semblance of peace you’ve held on to.
During Virgo season, the details are going to be extremely important, and the need to remain grounded and focused is imperative if you want to hold on to the happiness you desire. The Universe is calling for you to be graceful, slow to move and react, and calculated. Examine every situation from all angles, and don’t feel pressed to make a decision without having all the details first.
Any projects you’re working on, anything new coming into your life, take a slower approach than you have been and it’ll pay off in the long run. In our current society, we want instant gratification, but that is why happiness and true fulfillment seems fleeting in the lives of many.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Obstacles/Blockages – Five of Cups x Three of Swords
Disappointment and upset surrounding your relationships and the unwillingness to fully allow yourself the time and space to heal properly will be your downfall if you don’t take action. September is all about slow movement, taking things easy and not rushing through anything. This applies to dealing with disappointments and things that may have you a bit unsteady emotionally.
Whether it’s something that just happened, will happen, or happened a while ago, you’re being asked to take inventory of the pain you’ve been holding hostage. The pain you’ve been too afraid to face because it isn’t comfortable. Growth and healing never are.
To experience happiness, true happiness and peace of mind, you have to release the animosity stored within you. Many of us have become so used to carrying the emotional baggage, we don’t even know it’s there. We become numb to it. That is until something or someone triggers us, and we’re left to deal with the emotions we’ve stuffed in the recesses of our mind.
Your only obstacle right now is your inability to transmute pain into something powerful.
Course of Action – Two of Swords x Three of Cups x Six of Wands x Temperance
How you best navigate through this energy is by deciding. Choosing yourself and your happiness above anything else. If this means you can’t help someone with something because you’ve decided you’d rather relax in a bomb ass bath with Ritual Bae’s products followed by Netflix and snacks, so be it.
In September, remove the veil that has kept you from seeing things for what they truly are. The veil that has kept you in situations that aren’t truly fulfilling you. Acknowledge these hard truths so you can move forward and live the victorious and abundant life you deserve.
Do more of what makes you happy, more of what fills your heart with joy. Allow yourself to flow in this new month. Whatever has to leave, allow it. Whatever enters, allow it.
Flow, don’t force.
