On the surface the title of this card may feel heavy and depressive.
This is actually a card all about the creative process and flow. Of finding the brightness in the darkness. That flash of inspiration. And letting it see where it leads you. Of finding your wings and flying high.
If you have been feeling a pull towards the creative in you – be it with words, paint, music, sound, whatever is right for you. Feel free to give it a go. You may be channeling higher frequencies without knowing.
Bringing in light and energies in your work. Be it for you or for others.
Go with it , flow, journey and keep going.
Now I have to admit there is something else getting my attention with this card and it’s the word dreary. This is a caution I’m being shown and I’ll make it very blunt.
If those around you or in your space(s) are being deliberately dark, seeing the worst in all things or chasing down a rabbit hole with no bungee cord …..doesn’t mean you have to. If you have different views and perspectives – great.
But if you can feel yourself being bullied, browbeaten or any other control word that suits into thinking, believing or following something which DOES NOT RESONATE ask yourself these questions.
- Why are you allowing this manipulation ?
- What’s in it for you?
- Is it worth the time and energy to engage and debate as a grown up or will it descend into name calling and other forms of abuse?
- Is it perhaps time to burn that bridge, barricade that door and find another way?
Engage if you have the energy reserves or see it for what it is.
A call to disengage, step back and dissolve all connection.
The energies currently in September are allowing a lot of what people keep hidden to rise to the surface and be visible.
Take care what/who you choose to connect with. And take action when so guided. This is only going to repeat through the month.
Wed 16th – Thur 17th : Assistance
Moving on we pull the card of assistance. And for many right now with all the confusion, misdirection, mis communication, false information and whatnot things can be very muddled.
Those who have been asking for help of guidance. It is there, or is currently on its way – but perhaps not in a form you are anticipating. This also falls across the New Moon which for me is perfect timing.
It may be a complete stranger, it could be a change in circumstances over night, it could be a series of random events – which you will realise later were not random. You are being shown something important.
Be open to help in different ways.
If you have been having challenges with something/someone and out of the blue a change happens for them, see it as you being looked after. I’ve had this myself in the last week – it does happen. And the relief is immense as you personally don’t have to do anything.
For some others you may find it is you who are offering help to others in some way. You may not even realise you’ve done it as you’ve simply been doing what you always do.
So if you’ve asked for help accept it when it turns up – but again a caution with these energies – if it doesn’t fell right you can say no.
Fri 18th – Sun 20th : The golden Phoenix
A repeating card with a repeating pattern which is very much inline with 2020. Sometimes we do the work, assume it’s been put to bed and then voila up it rears its head again.
It may be a test to see how you have changed.
Or another layer ready to be looked at
Possibly even something has invited it back in
Whatever flares back up see it as an opportunity to assess the situation.
If the last time you stuck your head in the sand consider this a kick up the arse to get it sorted once and for all. Stick your head in the sand again (or up your rear) and it’ll only return with reinforcements later – and it won’t be as simple to deal with. Whatever choice you make take responsibility for it.
If this is something you have worked through before ask yourself if perhaps another layer is now able to be seen as your vibration has shifted. Which is a good thing – with the shifts come change and with change comes new vibrations. Work through it as it comes up. Observe if unsure in the first instance.
Feeing tested? Has your response changed.
If it has congratulations you can see it for what it was/is. If the response is the same as always consider that you are being shown YOUR pattern here. Are you falling into a cycle time and time again? Try something different – you may just break it and start to move forwards ……..
It’s all a choice
Start of the week –get into your creative flow – or whatever is calling to you even if something new. Let yourself play and see what comes up.
The flip of the coin if those around you are acting out of sorts, very heavy or pushing their narrative roughshod over others it’s time to assess the relationship. Is it worth the fight to keep it, or is it time to dissolve it and move on?
Mid week – and we have New Moon. The calls for help or guidance have been heard and answered – but possibly not in the way you were asking for. Pay attention to the small stuff mid week, and also to what comes up in general.
End of the week – cycles, cycles, cycles. If you find something repeating yet again it’s time to question it. What are you doing or not doing that’s keeping it going? Is there something different you can try to break it? You’ll know at a gut level if you’ve been procrastinating and what you need to do.
