Happy New Year 2014 !!
Hello world and welcome to a shiny, bright, new beginning! We have a New Moon today, 1-1-14, which is very rare and quite auspicious. I find it fascinating that most if not all cultures on the planet celebrate this event. Humans love starting over, symbolically and literally. As an astrologer I am not totally down with New Year’s Day, since a 11 degree Capricorn sun does not have significance. The beginning of Spring, 0 degrees Aries, is the real deal. However, we have quite a powerful New Moon today and the childlike part of me still longs for the ability to wipe the slate clean and begin again.
So I drew 3 cards from my Sacred Path deck to see what the Universe has in store for me. I initially was going to pull just one card, but felt led to create a sequence. After some reflection, I realized that the reading was not just for me. We have the universe inside of us. So I decided to share this reading with you.
1st Card : 13 ~ Nurturing
Coral card ~ 13
” …. look to the idea of nurturing. It may be time to nurture yourself or another. Coral also speaks to the Planetary Family. It may be time to have a reunion with the other creatures that share the Earth with you. …Coral always tells us to listen to our feelings…”
2nd Card: 35 ~ Returning Home
Shawl card ~ 35
” ..You are being invited to return home. If you have forgotten yourself recently, it is now time to remember your essence and potential. .. You may be coming home to the magic you once believed in or a new sense of well-being, but in every case you are returning to a temporarily forgotten state of being. …Wearing the Shawl is coming home to the arms of the Earth Mother and being loved. ..being loving to others who have forgotten the Sacred Path or the way home.”
3rd Card : 25 ~ Sharing/Quickening
Pow-Wow card ~ 25
” …The quickening of some aspect of your life will be aided if you use a support system…The Pow-Wow card is marking a time of calling in your markers. Your focus will be clearer from an encouraging word or two. The quickening is inside of you and speaks to the time preceding birth. Whatever you are giving birth to at this time can be assisted by gathering your friends for support.”
So the cards flow from 13 = 4= foundation, to 35=8=power, to 25=7= cosmic consciousness.
Please listen while you continue reading: we are magic
This is my interpretation of the spread :
You begin by creating a firm foundation by nurturing your Self and others. Take care of your needs first on all levels, before you can serve others. Feel your feelings and let them guide you.
Next you reclaim your power by going inward and returning home. This is where all magic and mystery resides. The life journey for souls in human form is one of re-membering and re-cognizing your true essence. Life has always been a miracle, surrounded by wonder and love at every turn. However, the trauma of being in the physical material world takes its toll on most of us rather early on. This reminds me of a lucid dream I had where I was told to go back to a time “before babysitting”. Retrieving one’s lost soul parts is a prerequisite to moving forward and loving others who have temporarily lost their way.
Finally cosmic consciousness is expanded by gathering with kin. This gathering is important to successfully birth what is eager to be expressed out into the planet. The dream is ready to be made manifest once your focus is clear. Clarity can be obtained by trusting your inner circle.
I am very excited to use these tools gleaned from my reading. I believe that the message can be applicable for the collective as well.
Wishing you all a year of radiance , magic, and love…..
