As usual the week was a blur. It’s Monday evening and I’ve pulled this week’s card from Graciella la Gitana’s Oracle deck. This time I didn’t smudge with sage but did ground and center- allowing myself to merge with Graciella’s loving energy.
If you’ve started working with your personal deck you’ve probably become familiar with Graciella’s energies that are compassionate and embracing. After a time it is easy to distinguish the differences in her spiritual presence as to your own beings. There’s a certain lightness and confidence that I believe comes with her wisdom and wit.
Today, together we pulled the Fear/Temor card. There was no trepidation when I tuned the card over after I’d shuffled and fanned them out in order to pull it from the deck.
I remembered a story about this card. Once I’d pulled it and was a bit fearful as I anticipated what was to come that day. When I arrived at work, one of the staff members ran to me and disclosed she’d inadvertently shared a pie with other staff members that I’d received from a company we’re affiliated with. She was terrified wondering my reaction would be. In this image, we see the round disk or pie that the female is holding. I was relieved when I realized that was the image or situation I’d almost dreaded. We have a good laugh. I don’t need a whole pie but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t eat it if I had the opportunity.
In this reading, I see the feminine energy leaving the old ways that is represented by the institution behind her. It can be anxiety producing to leave the old and walk towards the new. Unburden yourself at a pace that’s comfortable for you. Walk toward what resonates with you and away from that which no long serves you. The greenery shows a full lushness in the environment that surrounds her.
Let me know how this reading may show itself in your world this week. Tell me how you experience Graciella’s energies. We’d both love to know.
Theresa and Graciella
