This new moon before I drew my cards, I’ve read my journal pages of last month. This is for me a way to take stock of what has happened, what was important? What did I experience, accomplish and struggled with. This is a time for reflection; of releasing and holding on.
After I’d lit my candle and some incense, I sat down for a short meditation. Just to clear my mind and to calm down. I always use some kinds of prayer beads (a topic for another post) The fiddling with the beads makes it easier to find my center. After that I shuffled the cards of the Osho Zen Tarot:

Let go: The Miser - Oops, that was a theme of last month. I want too many decks. Surfing over the internet is changing me in a potential hoarder L. There’re so many beautiful decks out there, but I can’t have them all. This miser isn't even looking at her stuff and enjoying it. She’s on the lookout for predators or perhaps glancing for more stuff. First I want to get to know the decks I've bought recently.
Embrace: Possibilities. Well that’s a card I welcome in my life with my arms wide open. After trying last month to release the eight of swords mentality and throwing my blindfold away, I’m now curious about what possibilities I can find when I’m watching my life and its options in a birds view. Keeping my distance can be very healthy for me; don’t jump in too soon. (don’t buy everything in a whim) After sound considerations I can make my decisions with a clear head (I still have that key J) I’m always happy to see this card in a reading. It is opening doors for me.
