Alchemists held a vision of totality and connection of all elements. They sought to uncover the knowledge unlocked in the secrets of the elements. In this worldview, transformation was the essence of the alchemical search for wisdom and power. All that is – is one inconceivable invisible connection of harmonies flowing, exchanging, and sharing their powers in infinite fields. Chi Gong works in connection to all that holds Chi: earth, heaven, air, metal, wood, fire, water, etc. This image captures the beautiful alchemy of Chi and the orchestration that takes place all around us. It is so subtle that it is invisible to our eyes, but not to our energy bodies. The intelligence in nature is one of energy transformation and exchange in balance, enhancing feedback flows and minimizing waste.

This week, sees us engaging in some deep introspection, self analysis, and self revelation, as depicted by the hermit. We are facing many of the things that we have been avoiding looking into, and avoiding healing for a while. This may include deeply embedded child hood wounds, and aspects of our shadow self that we would have previously preferred did not exist, for us to explore.
This is a process of shedding the ego self, and being entirely honest with ourselves about who we are, and about the things that still hold us back.
The fallacy of healing is the type of healing that we do that is ‘easy’. This is much like treating superficial wounds, when actually, more harrowing, and damaging wounds exist beneath the surface. This week, has been for uncovering those wounds that are buried a little bit deeper. Our triggers to do with attachment issues, abandonment concerns, poverty consciousness, and perpetual negative thinking that leads to the manifestation of our worst fears.
It is no longer time to blame those around us, or outside of us, a huge emphasis is placed this week on self responsibility.
The ace of wands is the new direction of spirit and renewed hope that is introduced to us when we take this responsibility, and actively begin to nourish our own beings, and invest in ourselves. Perhaps, we have decided to leave old narratives behind this week, and in doing so, have adopted a persona that is more in tune with who we hope to become – who we have truly always been, (away from the years of indoctrination, and emotional negligence).
This new direction that beckons us asks us to be more bold, to step outside of our comfort zone, to be more social, creative, sexual, intellectual, passionate, and in charge of who we are. We are oozing sex appeal this week, and we realise how magnetic we actually are when we believe in ourselves.
he eight of cups sees us leaving behind the parts of ourselves that have been holding us back, including the self defeating thoughts and behaviours.
