New moon in April

Instead of drawing some cards for this new moon, I have decided to choose them intentionally so they would represent what I want to accomplish during this coming lunation.
I choose the Four of Swords and the Princess of Cups from the Druidcraft Tarot.
The fours of Swords represents my intention to quiet down my always busy mind. At first, I thought it could be a good idea to start meditating daily again but knowing myself, I realized this would be very hard to accomplish. I think it would be better for me if I could choose from various options: meditating, riding my bike. sitting with Jofee on my lap, taking a walk, playing with watercolors... etc. anything which would calm my racing thoughts goes.
The Princess of Cups represents my state of being when I will succeed in this; even if it is only for a second or two. She is connected to her heart, the place where feelings whisper and true wisdom comes from. She is totally willing to hear and listen to the messages of her heart. The flow of these messages is a constant in her life because she has no problem to tune into them. I don't expect to be like the Princess of Cups in four weeks but I am willing to commit to this practice and to see where it will lead me.

  2. I’m of the mind that all activities can be turned into a meditation. Chopping vegetables works well for me...though I usually chop way more than I need, as a result!

    1. That is so true. Chopping vegetables is a good way to relax the mind. For me knitting and gardening do the trick well. As long as my hands are kept busy and my mind has just enough to do to prevent it from wandering off

  3. I love the artwork in the DruidCraft, something in me resonates with those cards, can't figure out why I do not have a deck of my own. Soon I guess.

    1. You should. It was my second deck. I bought it years after my first one, the Rider Waite. I never grew tired of it and it always has something new to tell me.
