Language of Heart Alchemy Cards
Read by Charlene Maguire
As the Virgo full moon energies settle a bit, we all might be feeling a bit raw. Things are up in the air. We are in a space where we need to look at all the big areas of our lives; health, career, relationships, spirituality… and consider where we are out of balance. How is your body communicating to you? Are you feeling extra emotional? Maybe you’re having to make some big decisions and having a hard time knowing who and what to trust, or maybe you just need to step back and have some time for yourself. This week is all about moving through the storm and allowing the chaos to help reorganize.
For anyone reading this who is new to oracle cards: Oracle and Tarot cards are a wonderful but sometimes misunderstood tool. They are one of many ways to help us learn to communicate directly with our higher selves and partner with spirit, and receive wisdom and guidance on the decisions we need to make. The cards can be an amazing communication and navigational system to help reflect the energy currents of the present moment in your life. This is not about prediction in any way… more like the energetic weather report of the story already in motion. All of us are on some form of a path to personal mastery, and oracle cards can be like an ongoing friendship that supports you in the areas of your life that you need it most.
Question: Are you out of balance?
Message: Balance starts with “being with” yourself so you can pay attention to what your needs really are. The emotional thunderstorms and droughts usually come about because we have not been raised to pay attention to our own needs and desires, but rather everyone else’s. This throws us out of balance. Find the middle point between what others need from you and what you need and choose for yourself.
Where are you in this balance point? Are you the “helper” who is always there for everyone else and not paying attention to your own needs? If you’re feeling emotionally overwhelmed and not able to find your center point anymore, take some time for yourself. Take some real time for yourself. Notice what your body is sharing with you in it’s messages… the pain, joy, crying, delight, anger, happiness, overwhelm, sadness, or any other emotional storm moving through is there for you to see and be with your vulnerabilities. Feel it, release it, and then it’s easier to create change in the areas you need to.
Question: What did the heart say to the brain?
Message: A generator is person or thing that generates something. We generate decisions from the information our bodies pick up in all kinds of situations. The brain gathers a good amount of intellectual data, but the heart has an intelligence through the electromagnetic field that extends outside the physical body. It can be quicker at grasping that gut feeling information. The two can work together for effective decision making if you let them.
Now that you’ve weathered the emotional storms and can see where you need to come into more balance, you might be able to sense what you’re body is telling you. We tend to stay up in our head too much, while our heart and gut are trying to give us valuable information. What? Huh? We never hear it. The image on this card is meant to represent the heart and the brain working together. Get out of your head and listen to your heart more. Let the heart and the brain work together to help you get those “gut feelings” that will guide you towards the decisions you need to make in your life.
Question: How does music make you feel?
Message: The definition of music is “vocal or instrument sounds combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.” Music creates space for our emotions — creates the space to feel and enjoy those feelings. Consider a favorite song — when you listen to it, does your heart relax? Do you feel sad? Do you breathe deeper? Do you feel a rush of well-being? Emotions are meant to be felt. Enjoy them.
Well… there have been all kinds of emotional storms throwing you into chaos, which also served to get you out of your head and more into your heart/gut feeling level of knowing. Put on some music and just full-on head into whatever feelings are coming up! Emotions are meant to be felt, and you know why? They are actually an amazing barometer of what is going on inside you. If you pay attention, your gut might just give you some good signals
