And now once again for your cerebral pleasure, here are the Monday Musings! This week's deck is another oracle, as opposed to the tarot; The Cards of Winds and Changes by Judith Pintar. It also was one of the very first oracles I purchased way back in the day, and I still deeply resonate with it.
Monthly forecast? Weekly forecast? Daily forecast? It's up to you, you know the drill! Pick the one that calls to you for a mini-reading for the week ahead, or read them all as a story-telling 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 the universe has in store for you, hit me up. "I'm here to help."
Left: All That Is
If this is the card that you chose, it is reminding you that the sum of the parts is greater than the individual pieces. It's reminding you that you are part of a bigger design, that you and your situations and the people in your life are all part of a grand scheme. It's time to rise above yourself and see how you are meshing with everything else that's going on around you. Like it or not, you're interdependent on them, in some way or another. Perhaps they are there to support you, or maybe it's your turn to lend a hand. Maybe they're there to challenge you, to encourage you to break free from a toxic situation or leave a relationship that is no longer viable, so that you can continue your soul's evolution. The lesson this card brings is that no matter what you do, it is going to have a ripple effect on the people in your life. Keep your thoughts optimistic and your words empowered. Sow good seeds where possible—and if you look hard enough, you'll find it is always possible.
Middle: Gaia, Great Spirit
The image on this design is a mathematical symbol called 'the golden rectangle.' This is a symbol of wheels within wheels, and it can be found in many places in nature, such as nautilus shells, the arrangement of leaves or petals, or even the flight patterns of some insects. If this is your card for the week, it's a message to look deeper and to see what's underneath the surface. Solutions may be hard to find, but they're there, and as soon as you start searching for their sequences in places that you wouldn't expect to see them, they'll appear. This too is a card of discovery, learning, and growth, of mysteries and magic and soul-growing lessons. It's asking you to keep looking. The answers lie in the same bed as the problems.
Right, Gaia, South
If you chose this as your card for the week, expect hard work, but work that brings high rewards. It's appropriate that this is a card of springtime, and a card of abundance and joy. It's message is love and you will be loved; it's as simple as that. In today's world it's easy overlook the good things in your life, for the spin doctors in the marketing companies don't get rich if you're happy and contented. Be a rebel. Flip them the bird and create your happiness from your own soul. How? This card's message is count your blessings, rejoice in what you have, and share it all with wild abandon. Hard work with love is the path you walk. Abundance and joy is the harvest you will reap. Now get out there and shine on, you crazy diamond!
