Card: 8 of Disks – from the Tarot of the Holy Light.
“Inspired invention, fine craftsmanship, in a class of your own, reputation. Results from long experience.”
Message from the Faeries: This is a very promising week for most of you. This card represents the balance – the four suns and four moons – that you’ve achieved at this time and there should be a harmonious energy.
If you’ve had any important projects or plans put on hold, this will be the perfect week to put a lot of work into them. It’s a good time to get any work done. You’ll find success in your endeavours. Even if you don’t reap the benefits immediately, you will have your reward soon enough.
We hope that you carry with you, at this time, a lot of hope and a sense of well-being. Perhaps if there isn’t any external work that needs to be done right now, maybe it’s time to work on something happening internally. Is there something happening for you emotionally or mentally right now? Are you holding yourself back or feeling stuck? This is the perfect week to do the work. You will find that you will achieve a lot in a short period of time.
The suns and moons in the card are a reminder of the natural cycles that are also happening. The waning of the moon. The changing of the season. This week has a lot of transformative energies. You may feel yourself having to work through some issues, but be rest assured that the hard work is going to pay off in a big way. You are shifting with the seasons and time, and getting ready for bigger changes that are coming your way. It’s best to start off the next cycle/season, on the right foot.
We love you.
I don’t know about anyone else, but lately I have have been feeling GRUMPY. Grumpy as all hell. I grump over here, grump over there, and grump grump grump. I go to bed grumpy….I wake up happy, but I go to bed grumpy. I feel good when I wake up…it’s the moment I leave my apartment and have to deal with people that grump starts to set in. Right now, for me, people are exhausting. Not everyone..there are a few exceptions, but overall I just do not want to play well with others. I think I need to be sent to the time-out corner for a while.
I asked The Faeries why I am so grumpy and they tell me it’s because I am not spending enough time in the day doing the things that I enjoy doing. I do things – like go to work and even go to the gym – out of a sense of obligation and not because I enjoy doing these things. I am finding it so very challenging to find a balance between all of these things. I go to work and start feeling grumpy and then I feel too tired when I come home to do the things that I enjoy, so I plunk myself down in front of the tv and zone out for a couple of hours. I just want to numb myself with tv and food. I wake up, go to the gym, putter around and sometimes do enjoyable things, but overall I am not making it happen.
What can I do to ungrump myself? The Faeries are saying that it’s quite alright to be grumpy sometimes and that I need to just be sure to have my alone time every day. Also, they are saying there is a cycle and rhythm to life and that it’s part of my cycle to be more hermit like right now – I’ve thought about it and this is true. Soon the weather will get warmer and the sun will be out more often and I will feel like being outside and socializing. It’s okay to take a social time out, but I should be more diligent about spending my off work time doing joy related things. Things that make me happy. I’m working on it.
So I am going to just ride this time out. I know it won’t last forever. Don’t worry, I am not likely to grump at you. It’s all kept on the down-low. I vent it out when I jog or go to the gym. Besides, you will probably feel a natural inclination to walk around me, haha. It’s good to be yourself, even if you are feeling grumpy. I don’t hide it, but I also don’t try to make other people grumpy too. I’m owning my grumpy-self. So don’t mind me while I grump away.
