As we welcome in Friday’s New Moon this makes it a wonderful time to get connected with what we need to work on for the next month. Below are 6 cards from the Victorian Fairy Tarot. The backs are all the same, but by using your intuition choose one of the cards that calls most to you. Take a deep breathe in and out. Don’t second guess yourself – just choose.
Your card meanings are here below:
Card #1 – NINE OF WINTER: The fears that seize us in the wee hours are the most debilitating. Exhaustion and vulnerability gnaw at the spirit. If you chose this card you are being told that you are caught in a cycle of fear, not sure what is presumed nightmares and fears and what is truly happening. Although most people experience fear, frustration and uncertainty at some point in their lives, you should not allow those negative emotions to immobilize you or keep you from pursuing your goals with enthusiasm and hope. Expect at least some level of uncertainty in the future, and draw upon your inner strength to remain as flexible and adaptable to that uncertainty as possible. It is time to calm yourself, release the past by learning those lessons, and beginning again with new goals and allowing new opportunities.
Card #2 – FIVE OF AUTUMN: Help is at hand, but you have to first put your pride aside and ask for it. Feeling beaten down makes it harder to recognize comfort when it is being offered or to imagine that anything can even change. Will you let go or hold a grudge? Will you be hopeful or helpless? There’s no doubt that bad things happen to good people. But the key to not succumbing to victim mentality is to adopt the mentality of a survivor. Pick your battles. You may be tempted to fight every conflict to ensure you get your way, to prove that you are right, or to defend yourself when you are feeling challenged or threatened by another person. However, most experts agree, choosing your battles in a better way of life than battling out every disagreement. Not only will picking your battles lead to a more peaceful existence, it is also more likely to strengthen your interpersonal relationships. Don’t underestimate your own power, or that others are good and they can help you unlock your own potential.
Card #3 – THE FAIRY BRIDE: Decisions surround you and although choices can be frustrating, progress and growth comes from being able to step forward, following your heart and trusting your intuition. Indecision come from fear. This applies not only to love relationships and marriages but it is applicable to any relationship where people may be drawn together be it a business partnership or a casual, recreational one. Huge changes in 2017 are abound, though, and whether you like change or making decisions you will have to. Your angels and guides are providing you opportunities and the lesson may very well be how worthy you believe yourself to accept things that you love in your life. You’ve compromised and sacrificed for years. It’s okay to not stay attached to that which isn’t helping you. Truth will be exposed and you will have a choice of the heart or the head. Free will may be a vital key, just be cautious of the shadow self – be open to change and growth as this card offers a rare opportunity and if you resist or control the passion or do not honor the love in some way the love may be lost. Love needs to be nurtured.
Card #4 – AWAKENING: When you look in your past you can find lessons and some failures. We are all humans and it is through the adversities that we receive our awakenings. You may have lost your way and are now left to walk in the dark, guided only by your inner light and intuition. You need to go on without a clear picture of where you are, where you are going or where you have been. It is time to embrace your intuition and psychic nudges, so let go of your conscious mental blocks or negative self-talk, and allow your intuition to guide you. Your dreams, intuitions, and inner promptings lead you forward toward higher levels of understanding if you listen carefully and use your judgement to help interpret the veiled messages of the unconscious. Not only will the way forward be revealed but in many cases you will learn lessons about yourself that will be valuable in later journeys. It is now time for you to look at all the issues and release the negative emotions that you are hanging on to and let that go. This is a time of regeneration and transformation, but it can only occur if you set down the negativity and allow yourself to turn away from your dark side and embrace the light that shines on and within your spirit. If you can’t see it, the reminder is that the moon remains strong to help guide and transform you. Release all that is troubling you.
You have loved ones on the other side willing to help you with your journey. Don’t fear the shadows, trust that even though you may not know how to do this, that you’ve held on to your hurt far too long and it is time to feel whole again.
Time by the ocean is also healing and much needed right now. If you can’t do that, take a sea salt bath and pretend.
Card #5 – FORTITUDE: Pick your battles. You may be tempted to fight every conflict to ensure you get your way, to prove that you are right, or to defend yourself when you are feeling challenged or threatened by another person. However, most experts agree, choosing your battles wisely are a much better way of life than battling out every disagreement. Not only will picking your battles lead to a more peaceful existence, it is also more likely to strengthen your interpersonal relationships. With all that you are experiencing in your life, it is time to embrace your own strength, always and forever. It is time for you to let go of the things that can no longer be fixed. Trash is trash. Only keep around that which is worth collecting. If you have to force a situation into the way that you want it, you only make it worse and the knowledge that it isn’t yours needs to be seen. Holding on can make you brave, but moving on makes you strong. You’ve allowed yourself to get stung enough. Pick your friends wisely. You don’t need part time people in your life. Not everyone is going to want, accept, or know how to receive your energy. Don’t analyze it, just know that they aren’t part of your tribe and maybe never were.
Card #6 – THREE OF SPRING: It’s time to put some spring in your step. You’ve accomplished much, and now that hard work is paying off! While you wait for your rewards to be delivered, this is a good time to take a moment and ponder your next step. You’ll need to adopt a long-term perspective. The knowledge you’ve gained since the beginning of your latest endeavor can be used to create even greater successes in the future.
It’s important to have patience right now while your dreams continue to blossom. They will flourish, but it will take a little more time. Lighten your heart by listening to music, dancing, hanging with friends – whatever it is that makes you feel lighter and makes your heart happy. Don’t get so caught up in the humdrum of day to day life and switch things up.
The New Moon (more about that here) visits us this Friday, but you may already be feeling the extra energy. By meditating upon your message, even if it doesn’t resonate with you right at this moment, you can be prepared for the new year.
