Make a clear choice, and commit fully in thought, word and action. When you are grounded in clear intention, and you commit with impeccable integrity and dedication, the Universe instantly mirrors that vibration back to you, to support you in the most effective way, at the highest possible level.
If you aren’t grounded in a crystal-clear intention – perhaps feeling uncertain or wishy-washy about where you’re going or how you intend to get there – the Universe will mirror that back to you, too.
While it is sometimes appropriate to let go of attachment to outcome and trust conditions to unfold as they will, you have been born into this earthly experience to forge a unique path and manifest conditions according to your specific desires. And now is a time when your soul will most benefit from doing just that.
Teachers of various forms of classical Indian arts have a saying – technique is freedom. If you have seen a master ballerina letting emotion and inspiration flow through her body while executing moves with stunningly perfect form, you have witnessed this dynamic in action. Through her art, the dancer’s unwavering commitment unlocks a new level of freedom for her, simultaneously bringing a uniquely liberating current of energy into the world.
Similarly, just as diamonds are formed out of carbon by intense pressure and heat, your commitment serves as a strong force that will transform your efforts into eternal treasures of sparkles and light. This is as true in your dance or yoga practice as it is in every other aspect of your life.
Don’t worry about making a ‘wrong decision’. The only wrong choice is the one you don’t make. Once a decision is made (whether it’s about a course of study, your art, your career, a relationship, a positive habit, or any form of self-cultivation), you will find you power and passion are activated. Allow this to fuel that decision with a single-minded purpose, and to recharge your commitment on the days when you could use a little extra motivation.
Devote yourself completely to your highest visions and goals. This will fortify your self-esteem and help you create beautiful conditions in every area of your life. It will also empower you to bring blessings to the world in a way that only you can.

Each time you make a mistake, you have the opportunity to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and then recalibrate and reassess the situation. This sacred act of soul polishing assists you on your way toward your most illustrious and fully integrated self. This is why the God/ess, your angels, and your spirit guides encourage you to embrace the human experience of making mistakes with joy, openness, acceptance, and gratitude.
With this card, you are the beneficiary of a cosmic secret. True success smiles upon those who are 100 percent willing to fail. Once you master the art of dancing gracefully with mistakes, you will know what it means to be truly free – free to follow your heart, embody your power, and live your dreams.
Just as a bodybuilder uses resistance to grow stronger, the cosmic resistance of life’s obstacles, challenges and mistakes will shape and mold you into your strongest, wisest, and most radiant self. Trust in the challenges the Universe places in your pathway, and head straight into them even if you feel you have no idea where you’re going, what you’re doing, or why you’re doing it in the first place.
All your favorite artists and athletes started at the very beginning, with zero mastery, and they made thousands of mistakes. Many of the most successful performers were told they did not have natural talent or aptitude for their chosen discipline. This demonstrates the surprising power of mistakes. Repetitive corrections create stronger neuropathways that propel you toward your desired outcome. Successful actions become more deeply ingrained when you’re required to expend more energy to work for them. The same dynamic is at work not only in art and athletics but in every area of life.
A path of abundant “failure” precedes every path of abundant success. If you are not willing to look silly, unpolished, or unpracticed, you will never achieve mastery in any skill, practice, or area of life.
This card also brings a reminder to forgive yourself for anything you think you’ve done (or not done). If you feel wronged by someone else, this is a time to find peace in knowing that we are each doing our best with what we have in any given moment. We all falter in our integrity, behave without full awareness, or fail to have the purest of intentions in our relations with other people and ourselves, at least sometimes. This is evidence that we are alive. As long as we are here in this physical reality, we have opportunities to learn, grow, improve, and lovingly make corrections to our course.

On the surface, it seems the world – inside and outside of you – is filled with movement, color, form, and noise. But tune in even deeper, and your will perceive the eternal, silent stillness behind all appearances and manifestations. Now is a time to enter fully into the stillness and come into a state of complete and single-minded presence. This is what is means to ‘master the dance’.
The time is right to gain greater mastery in a discipline, an art, career path, or other area. Or, to step into greater self-mastery regarding your entire life experience. Whatever dance you are being called to master, set the clear intention to do so, and commit to devotional, dedicated, daily practice. Spiritual practices – such as meditation, prayer, and spending quiet, solitary time in nature – will also support you in attaining new wisdom, expertise, and personal power.
You are a full spectrum being. You embody archetypal polarities such as dark and light, lunar and solar, feminine and masculine, and intuitive and rational. When you honor and unite these energies within your being, there will be balance. You will connect with your wholeness, live your power, and feel at home in the world.
Choose to harmonize and calibrate the energies within and around you, and then fearlessly face and embrace all that is happening in your mind, body and spirit, relationships, environment, and life. Once you do this, you will activate your full potential and become the captain of your fate.
This moment is a sacred opportunity to learn to anchor your consciousness in the still, silent, center of All That Is. Once you do so, you will master the dance, come into harmonious alignment with truth, and establish unshakable inner peace.
