It’s the 41st week of the year and the card of the week is the Hierophant. The Hierophant is a card of finding comfort in structure and organization. This week holds a lot of intense, emotional energy so it will to have something solid to turn to if you start feeling overwhelmed. The number of the week is 5, a number of overcoming obstacles. We will have the chance to find out the answer to very important questions but surprisingly, things may make even less sense when you know the truth. It’s also Harvest Moon so the Moon will be sharing almost equal time in the sky as the Sun. The Sun, Venus, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter are in Libra. Everything is in equilibrium, use this balance to your advantage. Since the Hierophant is numbered 5 and the number of the week is 5, then we should return to the lesson of 4 to find out where balance is needed to gain momentum to get over any hurdles that may be in our way.
Mantra: Bring everything back into balance.
