A water card by nature (all cups are water), the Seven of Cups asks us what are we choosing to connect with and why.

There are so many desires we can experience in the course of a moment and there is no need to judge any of them. Rather, the Seven of Cups asks us to look at our desires fully, and in slowly looking, we can more clearly understandwhy we seek what we seek. We don’t need to condemn the act of desire—Scorpio understands this well, and the Seven of Cups is a card ruled by Scorpio. We just need to see desire for what it is—the act of seeking to connect with something that we THINK we don’t have. Here is where the Seven of Cups speaks up because “not having” is an illusion.

We are all seekers on our shared paths; the Seven of Cups reminds us that we already have what we seek. Look to the sky. All our cups are filled with what we seek to have and it is our task to see them as they really are. Are our desires lifting us up, or distracting us? We have the choice to connect with the timeless boundless reality of love. You already are love, it is just a matter of consciously connecting with it so it becomes part of your experience. Sevens gives insight into the nature of victory and this particular seven with Venus at its heart tells us that Victory is already ours. Celebrate the fullness and victory of choosing to fill your cup with love this week.

Scorpio

Stand still Scorpio. Stop. Pause. Ponder. Let yourself wander around in the deeper caverns of your psyche. A lot is coming up. A lot is revealing itself. A lot is trying to find its way to the surface so you can see it. 

But its slippery material. You might get an inkling about it before you get an understanding of it. Right now you are just collecting data, data that will make more sense later in October. We are steadily marching towards an eclipse in your sign then but first Mercury turns retrograde (also in your sign) this Saturday. This turn of the Trickster may feel bewildering at first but its less about knowing the answer and more about knowing that you dont know ityet.

The next layer of this week has to do with an out of the blue opportunity to make mountains of self worth out molehills of self acceptance. This could translate into making money. This could translate into having some savvy business swagger. This definitely should translate as an opportunity for you to awaken to your power and potential. 

In fact if you can let the deeply colored hues of the psychological material arising seep into your vision, everything you see will be warmed by it. Its not what we live through, its how we view it. No matter what is occurring for you, no matter how emotionally trying, I dare you to remember this: your potential is locked up in it. 

Whatever tests you, pushes you and pokes you wants your attention. Not because its a bad brat (even if it also is), not because its full of malice (even if that too is present) and not because your life sucks (though sometimes it certainly feels that way), its because your daemon is sometimes dressed up like a demon. Its because we often dont see what is right in front of us. Its because we often misunderstand the code words given to us to set us free. Breaking out of the chambers that imprison us is the only way to true self worth, self-knowledge and self-reliance.

Welcome to Thursday. It’s 6:03, your alarm has been going off for several minutes, and you inexplicably have already been awake for two hours while your brain remembers all the shitty things you did a little over a decade ago.
It’ll be okay. We will get through this. Follow these instructions…

"The science of existence was completely out there for me to explore. Me, a twenty-five year old female. There’s no mystery why poetry is so elaborately practiced by the young. The material of poems is energy itself, not even language. Words come later."

'Mal Maison' by Eileen Myles

altlitgossip:

And so I got some marigolds
instead of slitting
my wrists tonight.
And guess what I
had to live through
today—hanging on
to the phone with
my desperate wrist
on Sunday, guess
what I had to
live through, what
new shame, humiliation
rejection which I guess
is also worth it, I guess
it is, right, I could be
dead, right—and this
is so much better.

Absolute September

How hard it is to take September
straight—not as a harbinger
of something harder.

Merely like suds in the air, cool scent
scrubbed clean of meaning—or innocent
of the cold thing coldly meant.

How hard the heart tugs at the end
of summer, and…
