Card: Starfish – from the The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit cards by Kim Krans.
“The starfish is a natural and exquisite beauty, mesmerizing to all. Being around someone with starfish energy is a thrill, like you’ve been put under a spell of divinity itself. The problem is, these creatures have been reliant on how they look (and what other people think of them) for so long that they may have forgotten their life’s deeper calling. When this card appears it’s important to ask: Am I being swayed by outward appearances? What dreams have I put aside to please others?”
Message from the Faeries: This is your week to shine like a star. Go out there and be your bright and vibrant self. It’s okay to sometimes be the person in the room that everyone room gravitates towards. It can be lots of fun being the centre of attention. We encourage you to explore your star-like qualities and to find enjoyment in your glamorous self.
Of course, when someone’s star qualities are out of balance and they become desperate for attention, this can be an unhealthy behaviour. The opposite shadow aspect of this is when you shun the spotlight and withdraw too much into yourself. We aren’t asking you to go out and become a celebrity (unless you really want that!), we are just asking you to go out and have more fun.
We also think it can be joyful and exciting to put yourself out there. Put on some of your best clothes, maybe put on a little make-up or put on your fancy shoes. Pay attention to how you feel when you put a little effort in your appearance. If it feels good, why don’t you do it more often. Also, pay attention to how other people react to you when you put a bit more effort your self-care. How does that make you feel? Have fun with it!
We love you,
