The big event this week is Saturn retrograde on 29 April. Saturn retrogrades in its home turf of Capricorn until 18 September.
Known in medieval astrology as The Great Malefic, Saturn is also known as the Lord of Karma. Its energies teach us the value of self-responsibility, humility, realism, and putting in the hard work to achieve our desired goals.
Karma is action. Every action incurs consequences.
So long as you live, you will never escape this cycle.
The purpose of Saturn retrograde is to guide us towards reviewing our life paths, to make the right choices, and ultimately – to live our best lives.
Saturn is the tough coach. The bad cop. The demanding boss. The cosmic disciplinarian. It’s easy to resent Saturn. But once you can see the truth of Saturn’s energies, and understand the tough love which is part of the incredible, extraordinary blessings that the Divine wishes to give us, you will learn and grow.
The choice is yours. Do you want to learn and grow?
Onward to the reading!
LEFT: THE MOON REVERSED. This week, clarity could come from unexpected sources. As Saturn retrogrades, delusions can fall away if you let them. You’ll be granted the gift of seeing reality for what it is. Interestingly, this card can also represent the exposure of hidden enemies and covert agendas. What has been hidden could begin to come to light. To optimise the healing energies of this potentially disruptive card, the key lies in how willing you are to see, to pursue, to love and accept the truth.
The truth is always your friend.
Only your ego makes it the enemy.
MIDDLE: THE FOOL REVERSED. Not everyone loves the truth. The Tarot minces no words – such people are fools, their lives are literally upside-down, and they will certainly fall off that cliff they’re walking straight towards. Energetically speaking, there could be a heightened sense of delusion, wilful arrogance, and a deliberate refusal to accept responsibility for one’s reality.
Make sure this isn’t you, and make sure you don’t caught up by the stupidity of people who insist on their fantasy worlds. Sometimes, the best thing to do for them is to let them walk off the cliff. That way, they simply reap the outcomes of their actions, and you save yourself the trouble (as well as the risk of incurring karmic debts) of trying to help people who aren’t going to appreciate what you do anyway.
Someone who embodies the above energies (yeah, they’re not a great catch in case you were wondering) could play a role in events this week. Keep your distance. Do not allow their energies to influence you. If they’re trying to get your attention – ignore them. Stay in your lane.
RIGHT: ACE OF SWORDS. This card represents the energies of mental clarity and breakthrough. This card can also symbolise a new beginning that is accompanied by challenges and conflict. At the foundation of this card is very simple advice:
Make up your mind.
With Jupiter, Pluto, and now Saturn retrograding, expect the unexpected over the next few months. It could be that this week reveals previously hidden information that brings you clarity regarding certain difficult people and situations in your life. What you do with that information, and how you move forward, is entirely up to you.
GODDESS GUAN YIN DIVINATION
LOT NUMBER: 81
Autumn leaves fall;
Travellers hurry home like clouds,
Thankful for Divine protection.
So they return,
Like treasure-laden ships in favourable winds.
(Trans. Kelly Tan)
When this lot appears, you could be facing a situation where things may appear unfavourable for now. Do not fear: lot 81 is a 上签 or Upper Lot, signifying Divine grace upon you in this situation. As things develop and progress, the situation will improve gradually.
Therefore, review your plans and intentions. Once you are certain of the path you wish to take, go ahead – have faith that you will receive Heavenly guidance and support. The traditional detailed explanation of this lot advises that prayers be made for your cause. So go ahead and pray, meditate, chant, or use whichever means necessary to channel your energies towards the manifestation of your goals.
But first remember to make sure your plans, goals, and intentions are in alignment with the Divine will. Do not test the Goddess with your foolish ego. At all times, act with the Highest Love, Light, and Truth as your guides. Ask yourself what the Divine would do in your situation, and act accordingly.
After all, Heaven is not your rubber stamp. The Laws of Karma work very efficiently. And prayer is powerful.
Here’s a true story of how prayer and Karma work:
I recently heard of a woman who hated her colleague so much, she went out of her way to pray at a famous Goddess Guanyin temple – known for answering prayers, no less – for her colleague to lose his job.
She hated him! She wanted to destroy him! She didn’t want to work with him for a moment longer!
So the Goddess, in Her infinite Mercy and Wisdom, answered the prayer speedily.
The woman lost her job.
Have a great week ahead!
