As always, I’ve been meaning to write this for days, but am just now getting to it. Today there is soft rain & softer thunder. I am exhausted from staying up all night with a sick kiddo, from cleaning up & comforting, because even when we do this for the ones we deeply love, it still takes from us. My silver lining that matches today’s silver sky? I prayed with ones I still love, was reunited with that beauty Milky Way to slumber beneath a swath of starlight kisses, & spent most of yesterday laying in a river that glittered with mica & magic. Perhaps it is from this place of full & open that I was waiting to write from. Today.
This is a new offering that I want to do regularly, so there’s going to be variations on my presentation while I find what feels good.
I asked the Ancestors to come today & bring some clarity & insight about the happenings, & this is what they brought.

Past & Apprentice of Keys: since the last new moon (August 14)
The Apprentice of Keys definitely continues to resonate with lessons learned during the last New Moon, which also included influences from Venus in Retrograde. Apprentice of Keys can be about those relationships where you meet someone who carries wisdom that you are seeking, & vices-a-versa. It flourishes into a relationship with reciprocity, something that feels like a peer mentorship, where you both some of the pieces but not all of the pieces. & then Venus came with a Retrograde, & big shifts happened.
Maybe this relationship became a tragic casualty. Maybe things were uncovered & someone decided they were done. Maybe your relationship was able to pass Venus’ test but things will never be the same. Whatever the course, you are left more interested in Me, Myself, & I than before.
The Apprentice of Keys relationship was true & deep & so tender & sweet. That shit was real, even if it no longer breathes. It was real. But do you know what it realer? Sweeter? Still breathing? YOU. You are, Sweet One. That sweetship was to help heal that heart cavern in your chest, to strengthen your belief in such things, to ultimately warm you up with your own love. You now have the skills & know how, you can trust yourself & learn from yourself. You can now eat the fire of your own truth without fear of being burned.
Present: Seeker of Keys
The image on this card is of a hand holding a lit match, in front of 7 illuminated doors. Right now you are ripe with opportunties. This is the reward for learning how to eat the fire of your own truth, for not shirking it off for another cycle or five. Fire is a symbol for not only transformation, but also alchemy, the power to turn one thing into another by applying heat, & the ability to (finally) illuminate your own path. It’s about time, right?
Before this process brought you back to yourself, when you encountered these same seven doors, maybe only one or two were conceivable, but now that you’ve come back sweeter & softer, with the power of your own fire, your options have tripled! This is all you!
If this is new to you or you’re worried about making “the wrong choice” or that “you can’t really trust yourself, because that one time…” let us remind you that part of Venus’ gift of Retrograde involved brave self-forgiveness & compassion. That is the self you can continue to build trust with. Part of this process could have also included a purging of sorts, so make sure to keep those energy channels as clear as you can by asking those self-defeating thoughts & compulsions where they came from. If they came from a time where you were too young or unaware to say no thank you, you can give yourself permission to let it go & keep trusting! This will make decision making a bit easier.
Future: Ace of Keys
This is how we build trust with our future selves, the parts of us who we know hold wisdom that we ache for at times. If you’ve ever had those moments of asking the femmeiverse, “How the fuck do I get through this?” this is the self that did it. You do & don’t magically become someone else overnight. We are always becoming who we were always meant to be.
This card foretells an abundance of inspiration, treasures, growth, creativity, & affirmation that you are exactly where you need to be. & it’s true, you are exactly where you need to be. If you were waiting for that sign, here it is.
It is natural to be scared that you’re gonna do it wrong when you’ve just granted yourself power & trust to go where you want when you want, which will melt into self-confidence & femmeifesting skills unparallelled before your now. There is no longer a need to wait. Your time is now, Sweet One, to open up all the treasures you’ve been asking for.
