Let's see what the cards are telling us. This week I Chose the Revelations Tarot and the Wisdom of the Oracle to give us a full picture.
The Hierophant almost feels as he is telling us to pause for a moment and collect ourselves. Do we have everything in order? Do we have a plan or are we just rushing in hoping it all works out for the best? Take a moment, survey the path that lies ahead of you. Is it where you want to be? That is the message this card is providing us as we step into the energy of the New Moon.
The Four of Cups Reversed. The good news here is that you have more control. You get to pick and choose what you wish to be in your life instead of holding on to everything for dear life. She is actually joyful at what she is discovering. While there may be physical discoveries in your life that create joy. This will also be a time where you find joy in your self-discovery. Don't be frightened to try something new or for that matter to release some of the past. If you take a step back and reframe it you might look at the good you shared with the person instead of thinking of the bad. While remembering can be a good thing don't get stuck in there. Let the negative aspects go and work on healing yourself. Remember you are in control and this is about you finding a way to bring more joy into your life.
The Knight of Swords Reversed is showing us that we are ready to rush into things blindly and cut away what we don't need in our life. We are tired of being stuck in a rut and know that we must embrace the coming changes.
Resting on the Hierophant and the Four of Cups Reversed: Know that while there is a lot of energy, you must remember that there is a needed plan in place. Yes, it is tempting to cut ties and collect all that you want but you have to remember that there is a reaction for every action. So be cautious as you make changes.
The King of Pentacles right after the Reversed Knight makes me think of the Family Matters Character Steve Urkel saying; "Did I do that?" The King is almost stoic after his wild ride, really not so surprising when you consider the energy he used. For us, though this is once again making us stop and think about our actions. When one takes swift actions to change their life even in the smallest way there is bound to be a few people that will question what you have done. The thing is you are willing to listen to things others say you are not indifferent the only change comes as you will not allow them to steal your energy or change your mind. You are listening to your gut and intuition and doing what feels right for you.
The Fool says okay I listened but I'm off on my journey. You can join me or you can stay but understand you can't stop me. You see what many don't at this time. You feel you see your path of transformation and are ready to make it real. You're ready to do the work and create your life with the way you see it. You understand that it may not be perfect but you also know that there will be lessons and joy on this journey.
The King of Swords reversed some may say that he is blocking his sight but I feel it is more about trusting his knowing. Trusting his gut versus what may deceive that is in front of his eyes. This is a time to meditate and send the energy out to manifest your world. The New Moon is a perfect time to set your intentions for this cycle. Once you do and you focus that energy you might be surprised at how things move the way you want them too.
Now on to the Oracle Portion. The Oracle cards are a little bit of a guide on what you should do to achieve your attentions during this cycle.
By The Book, what exactly does that mean? Following the same path, everyone else does. Subscribing to the same old norms and ideas. Sure they might work for some but there is also the possibility that you should write your own rule book to a certain point. While there are certain rules that are mandatory there are many that are not. So if you want to experiment with your dress and some feel you shouldn't because you're too old to wear that. There is a rule in some eyes as to what you can wear but whose rule is it? They may have a point if you're showing off your goods to the world but if you are comfortable then it really shouldn't matter.
So during this cycle see what rules really apply and what don't. Remember this is about you changing your life.
Truth Be Told - This card came up last weekend as well. In this reading, it is all about you owning your truth. Speak it proudly and understand some won't agree. That's fine as they have their own truth. We all live life and experience truth in a different way. My truth may not be the same as your's but that doesn't make it any less truthful in my eyes. This is one of our greatest flaws as well as our greatest gifts. It's a flaw as for some a lie can still be the truth but the greatest gift is when the truth can offer so much clarity and freedom. So speak your Truth and say it loud and say it proud. Well, not too loud that you disturb someone or get yourself into trouble. ;)
All That Glitters - Certainly, we all know by now that all that glitters isn't gold. Heck, usually it is gold plated and can even turn your skin green. What does that mean for us? While you aspire to be another because of the success they have achieved, remember that you don't know all that it took. While they may put on a smile and share with the world how fantastic life is they may be hiding something that you wouldn't imagine. SO during this period instead of looking to be inspired by others. Look at yourself and see what you can create to inspire you. Be honest with yourself about your talents and embrace them. Know that by doing so you are being real and stepping into the strength of our journey.
A Change In The Wind - This is where things get tricky. While this reading has focused on change when it arrives sometimes we are terrified of what it might bring. If we could be patient and let things unfurl we might see how good tings will be. Fear can make us stop in our transformation because life is much easier when we have a routine and we are comfortable even if we're dealing with dark and depressing things.
When my Grandmother was in a care facility she would complain that her suite mate was stealing diapers and other things. She complained everytime I talked to her. So when it was time for a meeting with the administration I asked to have her moved. My Gram who was part of this meeting protested and said no she didn't want to move. When we left the meeting I asked her why. She told me it was because she knew what she was dealing with and she could put up with it. She didn't want a new suite mate as she didn't know what she would get. This is a prime example of blocking that change.
So know that change is coming and that you need to embrace it as it is time.
Best Course of Advice: Stop and take in all the details and make a plan. Enjoy the discoveries about yourself and the world around you. When you feel a need to break free from the things you feel are holding you back, stop and think of your long-term goal. Listen to others concern and then let them know of your journey. Remember to manifest your intuitions.
A Little Food For Thought: As we step into the New Moon this Thursday make your intentions and make them clear. Note that as you see the transformations in your life occurring it is not the time to back down and think that everything will work out because you put it out there. Yes, our intentions have energy and they can draw what we need to us. However, if we are not receptive or are not willing to do the work our fortunes can reverse just as quickly as they came to us. So remember to be clear and be ready to do what you have to, to bring things to fruition.
Whew, I know it was a long one but I think it should offer some direction and clarity. Hang in there, things are shaking up and we will see many changes in our daily world as well as our long-term views.
