After having played almost exclusively with both my new birthday decks, I felt it was time to pick up my beloved Original Rider Waite deck. Beside the fact I love the color scheme of this deck and of course the well-known artwork, I am totally smitten by the physical feeling and smell of these cards. No deck feels as good for me as this one does. It was love at first site and I never got over it. J
For this New Moon I've drawn as usual two cards. The first one for the energy I am going to release and the second one for the energy which is beneficial for me to embrace and I drew:
1 Release - Nine of Swords – well this is as good as it can get. After my emotional set back since the end of April and the healing I’ve done; the lessons I’ve learned, the time is right to let go of my anxiety and sadness for now. I know they will always be in the shadows waiting for another opportunity to get hold of me but for now I am free and I feel good. So let’s keep it this way.
2 Embrace – Seven of Pentacles – This is a card I didn’t know right away what to do with. I often get a kick in the butt of my cards to get going but now they want me so take a pause and reflect on my status quo. While I am writing this it sounds as the most healthy thing to do. Instead of getting back on my horse again it is better to recuperate a while longer and rejoice the fact I am up and about again. It is better to be gentle and patient with myself then to rush into things full steam ahead and overstep my own boundaries (again)
Another thing I get from this card is to pick up my gratitude practice again. This guy is watching his pentacles and is astounded by their beauty. It is only a matter of time when he can harvest his crop. There is so much to be grateful for
