Weekly Tarot and Energy Forecast-April 25 to May 1, 2022
Grand Rising family! We are at the start of a new week; read this forecast with an open mind and heart, and remember that not everything is set in stone. Always check in with your intuition for guidance.
The overall energy this week:
Welcome to the start of a very powerful season, full of Eclipses and retrogrades. Typically with such powerful forces at play, things tend to feel more active than usual — busy, maybe even chaotic. While there is no need to worry, I do recommend taking this time (especially between now and end of June) to be extra cautious, vigilant, and take your time with tasks.
On April 30th we will be receiving a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Taurus. The Solar energy will be extra potent; bringing to light what we may be overlooking. This solar eclipse will bring about rapid changes, especially with respect to our material/physical world — our homes, finances, the way we see or present ourselves…whatever lesson you have been avoiding, missing, or hasn’t been fully clarified, will be brought to light with this eclipse. The purpose being to open the doors towards greater sweetness and fulfillment in our lives.
Because eclipse energy tends to be like a “wild card” — anything can happen, and all for our best and highest good. This is why you want to be extra aware and cautious with your time and energy, and activities. Take it easy and don’t overwhelm yourself with tasks. In fact, the best thing you can do this week is to remain grounded. Connect with Mama Earth and anchor yourself with this stabilizing energy. You can try grounding meditations via YouTube, for example, or spend more time outdoors, in nature. Doing this will help you stay anchored in the present, despite whatever ‘wild’ ride you/we are in for.
As well, we are in the shadow period of Mercury Retrograde, which will begin early May, and this one will be especially potent as it will be in the sign of Gemini — ruler of communication.
So be more like the turtle and less like the hare — take your time and do it right!
Take a few breaths before responding, and triple check your work (and words).
All is well! We are moving away from troubles and being liberated from those blocks which have been keeping us stuck and unhappy/unwell.
Beginning of the Week:
Spirit is sending more money our way, or opportunities for greater income. In essence, we are getting our slice of the pie — a sweet indulgence to help us savor our human experiences. Spirit wants to remind you that they are always helping you, so keep the lines of communication open. In fact, your psychic senses and intuition may feel heightened at this time, so trust your hunches. If you feel it’s a message from Spirit, it most likely is.
Spirit is asking you to pay more attention to the signs and opportunities being sent your way — sometimes it’s a song, word or phrase, or a literal sign. Sometimes it’s a letter or phone call — whatever the case, don’t be so quick to dismiss what enters your field of perception.
Don’t forget to share your sweet rewards with your spiritual family. Acknowledge them in some way, possibly even with offerings if that’s your thing. If you have an altar space, for example, then consider refreshing the offerings to spirit. If you can’t have an altar space or are not comfortable with “offerings”, at least consider lighting a candle for your spiritual family, or visiting the final resting places of your loved ones — go have a chat with them, leave them some fresh flowers, etc…They just want to feel your love and warmth. OR just sit a moment to thank them and tell them you love them. They love you so much! Their protective and healing energy is all around you.
Middle of the Week:
Decisions, decisions! There may be bountiful blessings surrounding you; much more than you were expecting. It looks like you might have some important decisions to make, coming up.
For some these decisions are regarding your work — some of you may be offered a better opportunity but you’re unsure if you should take it or not. Don’t rush this! Take your time to make an informed decision, but also one that feels fulfilling.
Some of you may also be considering moving, maybe for work — a potential relocation. It seems like such a blessing, but again, don’t just jump in — look at all of your options.
And lastly, some of you may be considering leaving a romantic partnership, or you’ve been juggling between two lovers. Even though you feel conflicted and uncertain of what to do, trust in your ability to make the best decisions for yourself. You have what it takes to know what to do, and what you want. Or you may not have enough information to make a decision, so take your time to gather the knowledge you need.
End of the Week:
Your head is not all clear, and in fact may be clouded by indecision. You might be feeling confused or uncertain of what steps to take next. The best advice for you, as we welcome rapid and blessed changes, is to stay put if you don’t know which next step to take. Sometimes it’s better to wait until the dust settles, so we can clearly see the road (or roads) ahead. Be patient with yourself.
Consider acts of self-care this weekend, especially any ritual baths for cleansing and clarity. One of my favorite ways to clear my head is to “wash” it with pure coconut water (100% coconut water — read the ingredients to make sure). I usually shampoo, rinse, pour a cup of coconut water over my head (especially at the top of my head) and I’ll leave it in for a minute. I then rinse it out and envision the water has cleared my head. I then proceed as usual with conditioning and styling.
A bath and self-care will greatly help you if you’re feeling out of sorts. Be gentle and patient with yourself, being that we’ll all be dealing with powerful (and oftentimes intense) energies from the solar eclipse. Your greatest strength is in your ability to stop and relax — this will help you recharge and be open to receiving the multitude of even more blessings heading your way!
Some of you may have noticed I’ve opted for a more “lo-fi” version of these posts; I honestly put a lot of time and energy into them. I see these weekly readings as a service to my community, but I won’t lie and say it’s easy. It gets tough, especially when I don’t see much engagement on here or on my social media channels. So if you made it to the end of this post, please leave a comment on it, or follow/comment on my TikTok, or Youtube accounts; every comment, like, and share helps a lot.
