After a weekend of relaxation and errands, I’m happy to come to the oracle. The oracle continues to give me guidance in my day and especially in the observance of what may be in store for me. It’s not as though the messages strike me like lightning, but it’s more of a subtle knowing and understanding revealed that I look forward to when I pull from the deck.
As always, most importantly I join with my spirit guide, Graciella, who has gifted us with the concepts and images. I spoke with someone recently who said he felt Graciella’s spirit as he played with the cards. I affirm that she is present in each card doing. It is her energy and decision to share her wisdom in compassionate consciousness that we join with when we work with the deck. We centered, lit a white candle, shuffled the cards three times, fanned them on my worktable, and pulled one. The card that showed itself is the Fertility/ Fertilidad card.
This is a magnificent card! I love the deep purple of royalty of the pouch that holds, what? I’m not sure. I do know that each individual has his or her own cache of riches that is filled with promise. It’s important to know what your store of treasure is, where it is, and how you closely you hold it to your breast. There are coins here that seem to be falling out of the pouch. Tonight, I see the possibility that the pouch of goodness may have been placed on the coins. The coins seem to be antique gold that are riches of their own, separate from the pouch’s valuables. The green leaves surrounding the pouch and the coins are light in color, and that tells me something new, something that is growing, fresh like the spring leaves that will soon poke through the earth wet by the snow and rains will be encountered.
Look within to yourself. Find that precious object or objects belonging especially to you and listen for your next steps as it shows itself to you.
Rethinking, revising, rewriting. These have been the three major elements of my weekend, thus far. I started my morning, as I have been for the last five weeks, writing my three pages as suggested in Julia Cameron’s The Prosperous Heart. I’d woken up on the negative side of the bed but by the time I finished the pages I had taken a turn toward the positive. The old shadows and doubts were cleared away in the process letting in room for light, excitement and anticipation of my continuing process. In fact, I realize that my personal writing has taken on a new slant. It now includes affirmations that I believe and clear visualization of goals achieved. Wow. These three pages have become a mix of prayer and meditation. They allow me to de-clutter, de-stress and disavow the stuff that “yuck” is made of. Having finished part of my morning plan earlier than I anticipated, I decided I would use this time to pull the weekly card. This leaves my evening open for free time to be me and enjoy the fruits of my work. I shuffled, smudged and fanned the cards out. I centered and allowed Graciella la Gitana’s carefree energy to merge with my own. We pulled the Fertility card.

Words: About to give birth. Pregnant with the abundance of life. Giving forth to that which is expected, yet that which is still unknown. Keep steady as this new beginning bursts forth. It is rich with possibilities. The potential realized is forthcoming.
Read: New cycles in life and work are apparent in your life today. Look to where it manifests. Is it a novel, is it a baby or is it the tiny sprig of green that peeps in your garden this fine day? Each one of us is blessed with a creative center from which that we generate takes form. It’s important to get to know your personal creation. What is that thing that makes your heart swell and allows you to feel the abundance of all that is good in this life? It may be different from that of your best friend or closest colleague and only you can determine exactly what it is. We may be infectiously affected by that of someone else and that may be your clue as to where you decide to place your energies. Have you thought of spending time with something that your neighbor is now doing? You wouldn’t be ‘stealing’ their idea. You might go along with them to that new yoga class where you will find the ‘you’ that’s ready to emerge. Taking sewing or fencing classes with a buddy will help you to cut your own cloth. There is crazy excitement in beginning a new creation. Yes, if it is a baby you will tend to spit up, crying, piles of soiled lap pads but that would never negate the joy that the baby brings to your life. Just the same, a novel will bring a sense of accomplishment and pride when you see the bound pages and intriguing cover. Rock on, people, enjoy the tedium and the hard work; it will only bring the joy you so deserve!
Are there any new or old ‘new’ projects you’d like to share about here? Are there stumbling blocks you’ve encountered or ways that you’ve found that cleared the obstacles?
