This week we are visited by the 9 of Swords and the Princess of Cups from the Thoth deck. These cards are inviting us into grounding, listening, and calling back our power from
We’ve got Libran and Venusian cards coming through in the Visions pick a card pull! How fitting for this weekend’s new moon in Libra. Take a moment, set an intention or query, and pick a card. Answers after the jump!
Balance asks for our participation. Love asks for our engagement. Thinking about how neutrality is a fallacy. How our choices can be made without judgement but they require our unflinching presence, our willingness to face ourselves and our reality head on. The energy of this new moon reminds us that harmony is a dance, not a stasis. The friction that we are feeling is a call to action, a beacon to show us where we must take a stand, in our personal lives and on the level of the collective. Through this we learn that love prevails when we choose to do the work.
Some questions to consider as you work with the new moon this weekend (remember, it is usually best practice to set intentions when the moon is actually visible in the sky again. Listen to your intuition though and do what feels right for you! This work is not simply one size fits all):
How can I hold myself accountable for justice? for my progress? for my peace?
Am I regularly conscious of and communicating my needs?
How am I caring for myself and my community at this time?
How am I answering the call to partnership, collaboration, and aligned relationship to others?
We are capable of profound transformation. All of the belief systems, institutions, and ways of being that exist as they are now are human creations that can be evolved, changed, released, and transformed. It is up to us to make those choices, to rise to meet both our challenges and our triumphs with our whole selves. From love, from wisdom, and from trust.
I hope that this weekend brings you plenty of rest, contemplation, and pleasure.
