What a grey and dreary way to end the first month of the year! I needed a bit of color a bit of sunshine, so for today's Monday Musings I chose The Celtic Wisdom Tarot by the illustrious Caitlin Matthews. The bright orange backs and the colorful images seemed to brighten up this Monday, the last one before the celebration of Imbolc and the promise of spring.
The reveal is in the comments. Pick the one that calls you for a mini-reading for the week ahead, or read them all as a three-card spread. Your reading. Your call. I'm just the messenger. I'm still offering private readings, too, so if you want to know a little more about what 2019 has in store for you, hit me up. "I'm here to help."
LEFT: Woman of Battle
This card is strong, and assuring you that like her, you know more than you think you do, and it's time to start to trust that. Detach yourself from the situation and see it as an observer rather than a participant. What advice would you offer in that instance? That is the advice you should take, now. It's time to watch and really see what is happening around you, to be astute in your observations and discerning in your actions. As always, the answer lies in the same bed as the problem.
CENTER: Foundation of Knowledge
This card is yet another sign that you know more than you think you do. It's time to share that knowledge, but there's a caution here not to force it onto anyone. Let them come and ask you, and when they do, do not hesitate to educate. Sometimes you don't feel that we're good enough or that no one would want to hear what you have to say or appreciate what you can do. Get over yourself. This is a time of being who you were born to be and not giving a flying fig what others may think about you. Worrying about whether you're good enough just steals your authentic empowerment and robs you of the joy of your uniqueness. You are you; that's your superpower. Now go sprinkle that stardust everywhere.
Right: King of Art
If you chose this card, it's asking you to realize your potential. It's by delving deep into your authentic self and finding your spark of creativity that you will find the confidence to be who you truly are and the integrity to weather the challenges that come your way—and they will always come, that's just life. The message from this card is 'it ain't what ya do it's the way that ya do it' (bonus points for anyone who got the pop reference). You don't have to be good at it, you just have to be true to yourself, and let your creativity—whatever form it takes—allow your spirit to breathe.
