Here's a look back at past #PickACard reads - if you've ever missed one HERE'S your big chance to go back in our blog to get that on-the-spot mini free read. Going forward all #PickACard choices/reveals (including new YouTube vid detailed reveals) will be available right here in 1 handy-dandy spot.
I'm finding today of all days that much healing is needed in the world. Strange energies coming about from the New Moon in Leo - creating this burning desire to get things done & pull life together by the reigns. This might result in a restless, overwhelmed, "what the heck do I tackle next" feeling. So here is a lovely, grounded read with my hand-crafted Bone Rattle & Medicine Woman Tarot.
Why 4 cards? In numerology, 4 is the number for safety, security, grounding, satisfaction, and self-fulfillment. We could all use a little bit of that energy today.
Try engaging in some sound healing to beat the blahs & work out that restlessness. Shake a rattle, beat a drum, ring a bell, clap your hands, snap your fingers, hum, sing, shout... Whatever works.
Close your eyes and pick the first card that comes to you or that you cannot take your eyes away from.
Will it be #1, #2, #3 OR #4?
Reveal provided this week from the Medicine Woman Tarot by Carol Bridges
Stop sweating the small stuff! You're right where you need to be, frustrations, struggle & all! Use the New Moon energy of Leo to meditate on the word "Pride". Where do you have pride in your life? What aspects of your life do you lack pride in? Set your intentions for this new lunar cycle to heal & reconcile any bits of your wounded pride!
You are the ultimate nurturer of your wealth, abundance & prosperity. Contrary to what you may currently believe, you have all the resources you need to create a happy, joyful & abundant life for yourself. Stop trying to go it alone. Give those shoulders of yours a break from carrying such a heavy load! You are stressing yourself out at the moment. Guess what? You're creating a lot of your own stress. Take a moment to reflect on what you currently possess in your life that you should have some gratitude for. Perhaps those most treasured possessions aren't "things" but relationships & emotions. Open up to those Crown & Third Eye chakras. It's time to take the next step in your spiritual journey. Focus on the energy around you & your intuitive impulses, NOT what you have and do not have. As I've said, you currently have everything you need.
Sound Healing Suggestion: Singing in the shower, car, were er you happen to be alone & find some much needed "Me" time. Allow your Throat chakra to open up regardless of how your voice may sound to your own ears. Express your gratitude & love of life in song.
Your New Moon Mantra: I have created and continue to nurture all wonderful opportunities in my life. I seek New Moon healing for the stress I create for myself in my life.
You've got it going on! However you still doubt in the power of your love, compassion & healing energy that you give to others. Your biggest failing at the moment is your inability to see yourself how others see you. If you had a few of your most loved & closest comrades in life describe how they see you tackle everyday life they would undoubtably say: You are kind, You are compassionate, You are loving (unconditionally), You are wise, You are funny, You are intelligent, You are ferocious, You are a natural-born leader. I understand it may be difficult for you to take a compliment right now. For some reason, pain & disappointments from the past are preventing you from wholly accepting yourself in the present. Know that you are tremendously loved, honoured & above all, appreciated, by those around you. Embrace how very stunning you are. It's okay if you need to do that with baby steps.
Sound Healing Suggestion: Clap your hands, slap your knee, move those hips in time to your favourite tunes. Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz, Classical, Rock, Heavy Metal - it doesn't matter. Find the beat of your compassion heart in the rhythm of your favourite song. When in doubt, move that amazing body of yours!
New Moon Mantra: I release all feelings that I may not be "enough" & embrace how amazing I am here today. I seek New Moon Healing from all past situations that made me feel any less than I should about myself.
You're having a tough time seeing the silver lining in your current financial situation. This is putting even more pressure on your current job/career prospects. As a result you may feel like you are stuck in a perpetual cha-cha with 1 step forward and 2 steps back. Know that you are doing everything within your power to manifest prosperity, abundance & happier times in your future. We all go through cycles & seasons of having everything together, and then watching everything fall apart. What defines your greatness is not how you welcome the "wins", it's how you endure the falls. You will be happy to know that I see an upswing coming for you by the beginning of October. Soon everything will not seem as complicated as right now. In the mean time, how are you dealing with your frustration & anxiety? Spirit is calling you out & telling me that you need to get rid of some of that stress! Take a moment to acknowledge you have done all that you can do, right now, to handle your financial & career situation. Next: Allow yourself to let go of those frustrations of trying to control the uncontrollable in a healthy, productive way.
Sound Healing Suggestion: Scream, shout, yell, bang some pots & pans. You don't have to express your frustration in words, instead, make that noise to convey all the tumultuous feelings that are currently trapped inside. Express your helplessness to regain power & balance.
New Moon Mantra: I accept that I am not in control of all things. I seek New Moon Healing for my ongoing frustration concerning my life & how everything is not going as originally planned.
You have come a long way in developing and honing all of your unique skills & abilities. You currently stand in the best possible place for you to begin expressing all things you have learned over the past 2 years. Your mind seems more in control than ever before. The expression needed at the moment is to encourage full alignment of your head & heart. I am sure in your mind, life makes sense, all plans, goals, aspirations & ideals are fully in line, but you find yourself at times unsure of how you feel about the course of your future plans. Know that self-doubt is a very normal thing, and you may be currently doubting your feelings because it is too easy for you to over-think & thus over-plan. Take a step back, knowing your thoughts are totally on track, and re-route all awareness to your Heart Chakra. What is making you nervous? What is creating any current feelings of anxiety? Sometimes best laid plans do not come fully into fruition. It's time to let go of what has, can & will "go to plan" versus what will fall between the cracks. Know that what is meant to be, will be. Appreciate how freaking awesome you are and how far you've come.
Sound Healing Suggestion: Get Classical & subdued! Or whatever "classical & subdued" is for you. Listen to some yester-year tunes that remind you of simpler times. Instead of focusing on the words, pay close attention to the instrumental & melody. Allow yourself to be swept away in meditation by the "background noise" on the track - tuning into that "background noise" of your heart.
New Moon Mantra: I appreciate my sharp mind & keen intellect. I seek New Moon Healing to encourage my heart to speak more freely along with my mind.
