Mon 4th – Tue 5th : Ghost of the Pumpkin Patch
Interesting card as this ghostly little figure has popped up as a reminder that you have forgotten about something. A situation/person/situation that happened which was a blessing in disguise. But you have allowed it to pass by unacknowledged.
Take a moment to take stock of where you are and give thanks and gratitude for all you have. Both the good AND the not so good.
When you start to take stock you may have an epiphany of what it is you’ve missed either by accident or deliberately. Not sure what I mean? This is an example from yours truly : a job you felt forced or pressurised into leaving through horrendous ill health but actually was the best thing for you and the pressure has fallen away. It was never the right thing. I’m grateful to see this now and learn from it.
This is also a minder with the reference to the pumpkin patch on the card that this extends to harvest or a MISSED harvest. Where you either didn’t collect what was yours or someone else did…When perhaps they shouldn’t have.
It may be a call for some to start drawing debts owed to you. Not just in reference to money but to energy as well. Of pulling parts of yourself back. Of becoming whole once more.
You have worked hard to get to where you are so try and not allow others to take credit for your work, your words or your energy. You don’t have to jump up and down about it or fall into anger/fear simply acknowledge it. See what it’s showing you and continue to move forwards.
Give thanks for what you have and you send a very powerful message out to the Universe.
Wed 6th – Thur 7th : Attunement
This card really struck me when it popped up not so much the image, or the main title but the secondary title of “Attunement”.
For me this is about coming into alignment with yourself, your energy, and who you are or will be.
Of finding your strengths even if currently you have absolutely no idea what they may be.
By tuning into yourself and going deep you start to get little snippets of clarity. It may only be a fraction of a second but it’s enough.
You may have a strong sense of what ISN”T right for you which is pretty much the same thing. Go with what you reveal to yourself. You are finding your own balance – and it can take a bit of time so try and let it come to the surface without forcing it.
Yes I know it’s frustrating. But it’ll be worth it in hindsight.
If like me you’re feeling a bit blinkered then fair enough, carry on with everything else and in the quiet times the knowledge, remembering and information will come.
The balance is there just below the surface.
Pay attention to your gut feelings and instincts and where you find yourself guided – it reveals a hell of a lot more than you may realise.
Fri 8th – Sun 10th : Mermaid in a Koi pond
Flowing on from the earlier cards. This is another nod to finding who you are right now and into the near future.
Of embracing all your quirks that make you , well YOU. Everyone is unique but we forget that and try and force ourself into the accepted norm, people expectations etc and it can be exhausting.
So let yourself be free. Learn to understand what makes you tick, ignore peoples perceptions and opinions. They only relate to them not you. And I’m aware this can be a big ask. If it makes you feel shaky start small and build.
You will eventually get to the stage of not giving a monkeys what others think of you and your life. No, really. I’m proof of that if nothing else.
It’s time to grow into your “new” self, your new skin. Of shifting from the Koi to the Dragon (Chinese folklore that Koi are unformed dragons) . Of letting go of the fish pond you have outgrown and finding the new large body of water that calls to you.
A week of self development it feels like in all honesty.
Start of the week: give thanks and gratitude for all you have around you. But pay heed to any blessings in disguise you’ve had and have overlooked. It may be that reading this is enough to point you in the direction of where you need to focus.
Mid week : time to really discover what it is that makes you tick, what makes you YOU. What gives you balance. Use the quiet time to let the information flow – don’t force it just let it flow.
End of the week : time to start getting comfortable in your own skin. Of allowing your energy to expand. It’s safe to do so and in truth others opinions and perceptions will stand to fall away from you as you realise they aren’t yours. You are your own person with your own beliefs and perspectives – break free of the small pond you’ve placed yourself in as you’ve more than outgrown it ….you have bigger spaces to play in.
