Happy Magnificent, Magickal Monday! How are you feeling with the Full Lunar Eclipse just having happened? Remember this energy isn’t just for that one day, it will be burbling along for a couple of months (yes, I did say months). So remember to continually come back to your intention and to watch where your thoughts go. If you find your mind wandering down the dark alleyway of fear and limiting beliefs, entice it back out into the open with a cooling ice cream! Yes?
We have had unrelenting heat for the last 2 months and I have to admit it is getting a bit wearing. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sun, but when it’s 100F day in, day out it makes it draining to do things out doors (and that makes me grumbly and grumply lol). Although, yesterday I did spend 8 hours putting sheathing up on the workshop I’m building (which is looking like a tiny home) and figuring out the roof pitch and rafter cuts, so that was quite satisfying. However, with the heat I was a puddle of a person with gobs of sawdust stuck all over me, so a cooling shower and an iced glass of lemonade was quite refreshing.
August is rapidly approaching which means on Wednesday we get to welcome in and celebrate Lammas! Whoot! Whoot! (Note I said Lammas and not Llamas, although if you feel inclined to celebrate Llamas go for it). Lammas is the first Harvest Festival of the year, it is a time of awareness that the strength of the Sun (Lugh) is beginning to wane and there is a shift and change afoot. Active growth is slowing down and the darker days of winter and reflection are gently and slowly raising their heads. I love Lammas as it’s such a glorious celebration of food, first harvest and gathering. If you have no clue what I am talking about and what to find out more and learn an easy abundance charm for this time, I have you covered here.
Now enough chuntering from me, let’s crack on with the reading. With the Eclipse just past and all of us in this time of transformation and change, it was no surprise to see that the Oracle of Shadows and Light were adamant to come out to play. Now, if you have never encountered these gorgeous, quirky guides before let me share with you. These lovely guides ask you to step out from the shadows, to no longer hide your light away, and to consult with an oracle that acknowledges your individuality and strange genius!
The crystals that chose to join us are:- Black Moonstone, Shadow Quartz and Mystic Merlinite.
So let’s get comfie in our bodies and present. Take some nice deep breaths, slowly in through your nose and exhale out through your mouth. Bring to the forefront of your being any question that you would like support with, whether it is pertaining to yourself, a situation, a dream or a desire. Then breathe into it for a few more breaths and then pick the card or cards that resonate for you.
Did you remember to pick?
Let’s go have a look shall we?
A CLOCKWORK PUMPKIN
Notice the bright bulb inside this Clockwork Pumpkin – you are about to have an amazing moment, a brilliant insight, and a very illuminating idea! Action must be taken immediately, while the idea is fresh and new. No more procrastination – follow the ah moment with action, and watch amazing change in the form of abundance, creativity, and satisfaction take place in your life!
I may look a strange muse, a clockwork pumpkin accompanied by a beautiful girl, but have no doubt: I am the new idea, the epiphany, the moment of clarity when the seeming chaos of life suddenly rearranges itself into a brilliant opportunity. You are about to be presented with such a golden idea that I want you to be ready. It may come from within you, or it may come from outside of you, but you have drawn it to you with the power of attraction and manifestation, and it is an idea that will bring you great riches of the body, mind and spirit. It is time to activate your own brilliant abilities and become the abundant, enriched being you were born to be!
We are so pleased to have found you – we have waited for exactly the right being to take on this idea and bring it to life within the world. It has evolved out of time, out of space, and is perfect for you. It may be a song, a project, a new job, a relationship – its form is fluid, but its time is now, and you are the person chosen to bring it through. Cosmic duty it may be, but joy and love it will bring, as well as abundance and true happiness!
LADY WITH A BOSCH EGG
The Lady with the Bosch Egg is the one in this lifetime who has been chosen to keep safe, and sometimes keep secret, deep esoteric knowledge. Through history’s most troubled times, there have always been courageous beings ensuring that sacred knowledge was kept alive. Even though the world may burn, and disasters befall humanity, and wars take down cities, there will always be those brave souls who will take the knowledge, represented by the Bosch egg, camouflage it, and keep it safe so that at a later time, when the world is finally ready, we can all learn.
I hope you that you understand the history of the knowledge you crave, and respect and acknowledge the freedom of the times you now live in, and do the work yourself. It may be that at some time you too will find my egg and that you are the person chosen to speak of the knowledge others thought was lost. Or it may be that you too are a guardian of wisdom: if you are, know when to keep silent, know what to keep to yourself, and know that some secretes come to light at the right time. I bring you now the symbols of the alchemist, the secrets of the Gnostics, and the wisdom of the magicians and the witches and the herbalists….all saved for this time, in this strange form of egg.
It may feel to you that you are receiving wisdom from ancient sources and that some of its energy may feel unfamiliar to you, even dark. It is likely that you are receiving messages from times when people like you, misfits and mystics, were oppressed and punished for their natural gifts. Explore at this time something to do with the Renaissance, or medieval times, and understand that the knowledge was brought through to you, a very fortunate being living in very fortunate times. Learn all you can. Explore esoteric symbology, the history of magick, and spirituality.
CANDY CANE ANGEL
The Candy Cane Angel is in charge of letting you know when it is time for some little luxuries that will reconnect you with your self-love and self-worth. She, too, holds back from giving to herself, as she is such an earnest and industrious little angel – but her message is always clear; it is time for some fun!
As she says clearly to you “You know what my problem is? And you know what your problem is? No? Well, let me tell you. Our problem is that we both feel guilty about giving ourselves pleasure. See this little treat in my hands? It’s not bad, is it? It’s not evil, is it? But can I bring myself to just sit down and taste every moment of its sugary sweet delights? No. I have to wonder if it’s the right time. If I have done enough to earn this treat. To wonder why I should get this when so many do not have a single candy cane for their own selves! I torment myself with these things – and so do you!
How about we make a deal? Next time you ponder a gift to yourself: a massage, a treat, a spiritual workshop, a delicious meal, time to laugh with a friend, a long rest or nap, meditation time, a space clear…..know that when you energetically tell yourself “I am way too busy for that indulgence,” you are really saying, ‘I do not deserve that!’ Well, let’s decide that you do! I am about to have my treat. I now charge you with the same quest. Give yourself that which you have been denying yourself. You do deserve it!”
Do not rationalise or talk yourself out of it any longer. Step out of the consciousness of lack and into the consciousness of “I deserve,” and grant yourself this lovely moment of luxury. It’s time for some joie de vivre and enjoyment to restage a grand entrance into your life!
I love it! Action, Learning and Treating Yourself! So delicious lovely I wish for you a marvelous week, remember to take a moment on Wednesday (Lammas) and give yourself the gift of the Abundance Charm (it’s good fun to do). Remember too, if you still feel a little off kilter with the eclipse energy, that’s okay. Be gentle with yourself and keep bringing your focus back to your desires, not your fears. Have a wonderful week, drink water, laugh tons and take time daily just for you. Huge hugs and squeezes.
