Good afternoon Moonbeams
How are you all? I hope you are all well and happy. I was out all day Saturday mooching around ruins again and having a fabulous time. Sunday was spent at home, avoiding chores but I seemed to be very busy so all in all another good weekend.
We are coming up to our financial year end at work so it's getting busier here as I am trying to pull everything together but I am still a million miles away from the stress I was suffering at my last job. I met an acquaintance who saw me regularly when I was stressed a couple of weeks ago and she told me that I was positively blooming compared to what I was. That was a lovely thing to hear, thank you so much Sarah.
What is the following week bringing? Well last night I pulled an oracle card as an overall theme of the week and I got Risk, this is a new card for me and I am very excited.
I have just shuffled now and got the Daughter of Swords and the Father of Wands. I am not sure I am looking forward to seeing how this week is going to evolve. But I am curious...
Risk sounds frightening but it doesn't have to be. You have the choice between taking it or sitting it out. Maybe we are being asked to step out of our comfort zone here. When was the last time we took a risk? I used to take them more regularly with changing jobs, walking away from situations (taking myself of medications...), jumping in my car and driving somewhere I didn't know at the other end of the country. I never actually considered them as taking risks either at the time or looking back on them. They usually fell in the large category of "it seemed like a good idea at the time" sometimes they worked, sometimes not.
Whilst you do not have to take every risk or opportunity presented to you. Trust your intuition, if it feels wrong then of course, don't do it, but, I feel this card at this time is a call to action. What are we willing to risk? Are we willing to speculate to accumulate? I think I am.
Dominant Energy: Daughter of Swords
Well, following on from Risk we have an opportunity to learn. This beautiful daughter heralds a challenging time whereby we are being given the chance to grow and develop. The Owl of wisdom and knowledge stands on the sharp and piercing sword of justice, honesty and integrity. As much as we need these opportunities and appreciate the merit of them, it is hard to get excited or joyful about them but, the bright colourful stars are our reminder of the benefits of our challenges.
Action: Father of Wands
Is this Father Risk by another name? We are asked to step up and find out what we can do. Again we can sit back if we want to, but do we? This Father is fire and passion and confidence "he who dares, wins". Can we lead and inspire others? it would be nice. If we can channel this Father, then who knows what we can achieve. The Cobra is proud and fearless but not reckless and the lightening bolt earths the power of the universe in us, lending us power, creativity, spark and passion.
Well Moonbeams, we have a powerful week coming up. It will be challenging, but if we rise up to the challenge, the rewards will be great.
See you on the other side BB x
