I want to start this month talking about POWER. There’s always a lot being said about claiming power. The conversation about power tends to be focussed on self. All about me.
Recent world events that we are facing have sparked a coming together, a ‘we’ energy, a unity energy, which are the steps towards community.
Last week my mentor, Helen Barton talked about power from a spiritual perspective. It touched me deeply and has been growing since.
Helen shared, true power is in the power of giving.
Think about it for a moment.
If true power is about giving and serving, then everything, every planet, and cosmic energy configuration is about leading us to that possibility and potential.
If however, we focus only on lack of power from a personal perspective, which is an illusion, we make it about ‘me’ and that isn’t stepping into abundance. It is the opposite!
Before I reached for the cards for this Lunar month, I meditated on the energy, and I connected with Jupiter, the planet of success or excess.
With Jupiter’s help we can see the bigger picture, or we can become obsessed with how we are not enough, bringing us back to the “all about me” energy.
Though Jupiter works in a system with other planets and other galactic and universal energies, each IS assisting you to paint your piece of the Divine Tapestry if you work with the energy and insight offered.
This New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer comes with the Solstice. You don’t have to be an astrologer to know that the cosmic airways mean business with such energy and coming together.
It’s time to stop walking the line and cross it, stepping into a greater partnership with the universe and your soul.
This could be the beginning of all your Higher Self dreamed for you! Though the question is, are you willing to give up the illusion of power and step into giving?
Your abundance cards for this month:
I was guided to pick two cards this month from the Abundance Oracle Deck.
No. 7 Choosing Abundance, Element Water
This is an affirmation card: I choose financial abundance.
The first card is about how you step into true power, which remember is about the power of giving.
We have a contrast in the world where some countries are opening up and some remain in lockdown, but what is clear almost the world over is that we have a financial reset button pressed.
Some are already calling it a recession and many more are personally affected through job losses. There is a lot of uncertainty about the future too.
With all this uncertainty and anxiety bubbling and rising, it is easy to fall into the old fear habit.
But perhaps it is time to change this habit?
The energy we are stepping into with this coming Lunar Month, is about sailing ships through stormy waters and connecting to the big and new picture.
Work with this affirmation, make it your mantra. At times of wobble; turn to it. Work with it daily on purpose. In fact, work with it till the Eclipse Season is over.
Make it your friend, allow it to be your beacon, guiding you to your metaphorical new home in the new world.
In choosing abundance, you will start to feel and step into possibility. One thing is certain this Lunar Month, it going to be full of fresh new possibilities. Shed the old and bring in the new!
Affirmations, though magic wands, need to be ‘used’ consciously if you are to experience the magic they bring for you. Sometimes you have to remind yourself, that this is my truth.
As you continue to uncover what you are and let that influence who you are and how you bring your light to create the New World, be sure to work
with this affirmation.
No. 31 Being Abundance, Element Aether
The second card is about how to step into your power, not the old world power based on lack, but spiritual power – the power of giving.
When card 31 came in I smiled. I love the magic of both the cards and the universe. This card not only shows it, but also suggests, with a great gentle but definite nudge from the universe to focus on how you can be in service.
You, we, each of us were called to be here right now. It was right for our own soul growth and it is about what we have the potential to give and create as a legacy at the same time.
There is nothing grandiose in that. We are all chosen; we all together
could create a bigger picture of a new world. Not one person is more or less
important in this, yet how often do you assume what difference can you make? Or that you don’t have time…?
The simple message with this card is JUST DO IT.
It’s time to follow your inner-heart prompting despite the inner critic voice that says, who are you to do this, you aren’t ready, you can’t do that…there’s no time…it’s time. The beginning has come.
Will you work with the cards this Lunar Month?
