For this New Moon reading I've used the Angel dreams Oracle by Doreen Virtue. Although I've bought this deck about a year ago, I've never worked with it. Yesterday evening I was sitting in my room looking at my decks, wondering which on I would chose for my New Moon reading and this deck seemed to call : “Pick me Pick me!” Who am I not to react to such an explicit desire. So I picked it up, gave the deck thorough shuffle and drew two cards:
Release: Nettle – Boundaries, Caution
This cards urges me to let go of too rigid boundaries. They will prevent me from being flexible and adaptable. People who want to come closer might get hurt by irritated remarks or cranky moods. The Nettle grows everywhere and excludes other plants from its colonies. And this is something I don’t want. Although I need being alone as much as I need to breath, I do have to be careful not to isolate myself and shut everyone out like the little Nettle fairy in the background.
Embrace: Lucid dreams – Awareness , Opportunities
This is a bright and optimistic card to pull for the Embrace position. With her arms open wide, she is ready to receive. She knows she can create her own path by following her intuition and making the right choices along the way. She is open to the possibilities, presented to her. During a lucid dream you are able to change and/or create situations in and the surroundings of you dreamscape.
Some philosophies state this earthly life is but a dream. If it this is true I sure wish to be able to dream lucid.
(After the reading I suddenly made the connection between the starry borders and The Star as my guide for my 40 Day Challenge start and I smiled...)
