New Moon in September - Gratitude can be found in every situation

For today I’ve chosen to work with the Goddess tarot by Kriss Waldherr. Maybe this choice of deck is influenced by the large amount of red and orange in my last Art journal page or, which I think is more likely, I felt in need of some serious motherly energy. Although my  cards did not feel like motherly cuddles and hugs, they did offer me some clear advice for the coming month:
Ace of Cups Fortune Lakshmi Goddess Tarot Kris Waldherr
Release - Ace of Cups
A difficult card in this position. Why should I want to release a potential of Love and Creativity. But then it hit me. It is my clinging to this Ace which I need to release. The urge to feel happy , joyful and creative all the time. Sometimes its feel like I am on ongoing quest to feel good.  And even that can become a exhausting burden. So to let go of this Ace will make room for life to flow more effortlessly and fluently.
Embrace - Fortune  Lakshmi
Lakshmi is a Hindu goddess of abundance, wealth, prosperity both in the material and spiritual field. At first glance you might think why should you have to release that lovely Ace if this is your embrace card? Receiving Abundance and spiritual wisdom is not related to feeling happy or loved. The abundance of life is bestowed to us not matter how we feel. It is up to us to discover this Fortune in every situation of our life and when we find it to be grateful for it. In doing so our hearts will be more open to receive Love and Creativity. So when we are able to let go of the  Ace of Cups, it will return to us naturally.

  1. Your post is full of such wisdom today! So true that our grasping and clinging can keep us from seeing (and being grateful for) what is right under our noses.

  2. When I first saw these two cards the quote "Fortune and Love favor the Brave" came to mind. Maybe the Ace is your new month's energy to help propel you forward and then you get see what's next with the turn of the wheel. Happy September.

  3. One of the ways I work with the word 'release' is to think of it as releasing or allowing the energy to flow freely in my being rather than holding onto it, keeping it static. In that sense allowing the Ace of Cups energy to flow in you feels like a lovely way to begin the month. And 'flow' and Lakshmi, goddess of Abundance, naturally dance together, don't they. Like sisters :)

    1. That is a very kind and loving way to release energy: letting it rest in an open heart so it can come and go as it pleases. It almost feels soothing and without feeling a kind of loss
      Thank you

  4. You post is affirming and very timely for me Ellen today and thank you for a beautiful post.

    You are actively involved in what many of us are doing when we look at the Goddess and acknowledgement of female power not derived from the patriarchal vision of women. We are remembering ourselves, and to imagine ourselves as whole, in Love and Creativity.
