It’s the 29th week of the year and the card of the week is the Queen of Cups. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, we’re moving into the hottest days of summer. Sunflowers are blooming and the heat is on. We’ve past the solstice and days are getting shorter but not any cooler as we head straight for a solar eclipse in Leo! Mars and the Sun are all officially in Leo this week so we have nothing but the energy of the Sun beating down on us. It’s nice to be out in the Sun, enjoying yourself and having fun but the Queen of Cups appears to remind us to STAY HYDRATED. Water is cleansing and healing and it never hurts to drink at least 8 glasses a day. For the purification happening at this time to work and to avoid burn out, DRINK LOTS OF WATER. The number of the week is 2, a number of duality.
Mantra: Water cools fire.
