The Beloved

This is an invitation to love. To learn about love. To be free to love and experience the return of your love from another. Sometimes, the object of our passion and not be a person; it could be a pet, it could even be a garden that never seems to stop giving back to you in beautiful blooms, fragrances, growth, and abundance. 

If you are learning to love a person, do not conflict with what you think is love with personality. Personality is the totality of a person’s qualities, how they appear to others; it is their organized pattern of behavioural characteristics.

If you focus your ability to love on their personality, you will be disappointed because those attributes are not their ability to give and receive love. It was once said to me by a Finnish person that Finnish people often do not express their love as freely and often as other cultures. Instead, they demonstrate their love by doing something for you. Action speaks louder than words in their culture.

As you open yourself up to give love, you must be prepared to looks at actions and deeds rather than words. 

The Rattle

The rattle is an essential part of the Shaman’s attire. It calls the spirits the Shaman wishes to speak with. It warns evil spirits that a Shaman is coming. It is a beacon, sending out the Shaman’s prayers and messages. It carries them to all four directions of the Shaman’s compass.

Take a moment to listen to the Rattle and its message. Concentrate on your wishes and pray for all the Earth; when you pray for more than your wishes, everything we need is provided for us. 

Prayer can be simple… sit for a moment, and dream of the world you would like for your children and the children of all the people you know. End your prayer with “Great Spirit, may you will be done!”

Queen of the Moon Oracle Cards – Resilience

We all make mistakes and suffer the consequences of our actions, or sometimes inaction. We learn from our errors and move forward, move on. Someone once said that we recover from our mistakes and how we move on with what we have learned that makes us what we are today.

How we move forward defines our resilience to the “slings and arrows” of life, events and people around us. Resilience means an ability to adjust to or recover readily from illness, adversity, significant life changes, and events. Take this moment to look at your ability to recover from adversity and significant life changes. 

2020 was a year of great upheaval, and 2021 is compounding the events of the year before. We have all undergone many life changes, and our resilience to continue to move forward has been tested. Now that we are through the test, we need to look at what we have learned to continue to grow and develop. 

Now is your time to look at what you have learned and the resilience of your being, your soul, your spirit, develop it further and move on with energy and vigour.

Upper World

Shamans visit the upper world to speak to angels, divine spirits, helping spirits, and all that is luminous, empowering, and wonderful. They go there to seek the highest answers to their challenges, and of those, they are seeking to heal. 

The Upper World is a place of destiny and growth, advancement and achievement. It is a place of discovery and potential. When the Shaman returns from the upper world, they bring healing and a future full of possibilities.

If the Trust card from last week encouraged you to trust yourself, the Upper World is sending you messages of encouragement to leap into the future. Your future. As you learned to trust in yourself and shrug off self-doubt, now you must rid yourself of sluggishness and apathy. While support for a new destiny is not yet in place, a new destination is available to you if you act now.

Wild Woman

The Wild Woman is a free spirit, unafraid of showing you how to hold up a mirror to your life. Unconstrained by the social etiquette of society, she reminds us to dance at the party as part of the expression of our life. If you feel constrained by the world, work, energy, and people around you, you are dimmed by what you allow to deny you. 

Taking a peaceful moment to reflect on how you are constrained is the constraint of your own making. Have you gotten yourself into a situation where what you wanted is now restricting you? Are the conventions of society that came with what you have created for yourself hurting you? If so, then it is time to free yourself, find your inner light and move on. Have all the material things you have acquired now a burden, and many now lie unused.

Uncover your light, understand it, look at it and let it spontaneously shine brightly and lead you to where and to what is beneficial for you. Learn to engage with the world and be inspired by the world. Like a river, the world is fluid, ever-changing, always constant inflow, enjoyable if you allow it to guide and help you. 

Queen of the Moon Oracle – Release

This card comes when spring is flowering; birds are mating and starting the next generation. Plants, trees and flowers are all blossoming and preparing for a new world of growth and change. For the new growth to manifest itself, the old must be discarded; branches that are deadfall from a tree without regard to whom or what may be underneath it.

You must do the same. Are you holding on to fishing equipment and perhaps a boat when you no longer go fishing? 

It is time to sell those things when they still have value and have not rotted away. Perhaps the fishing tackle and the boat bring memories of people but no longer know. They were good times, but that is the past; today is your opportunity to release them so that you may move into the future of new friends and new activities.

Releasing the past so that you may have a more accessible and happier time now and an even better time in the future gives you energy and opens your mind to new experiences. Grasp those new experiences with your recent freedom of mind and ability to act. Don’t hold back!

The Curse

The curse speaks to our karma, karma from previous lives that affects and controls us in this life. It blocks us and directs us if we let it confuse us. Bad karma brought into this life from the past may appear accurate, but it is not.

A rash act in a past life, a life where you lived restricted by caste, culture, language or physical ability, should not affect this life unless you allow it to. This card appears to warn you to release past beliefs and karma that have followed you into this life. Control and remove fears, cultivate and learn about new things that are good for you. 

Now is the time to move on from past restrictions that have played your mind and kept you back.

The Owl

The owl sees clearly, even at night. It is quiet and mysterious. It flies on wings specially adapted to be silent when washing so that its prey does not hear it coming. Most important to the owl is the intuition and wisdom to hunt in places where it can find food.

The owl spirit comes to tell you to be wise in where and what you do. Not everything in front of you, beckoning for your attention, will be beneficial to you. Use owl-like intuition to read between the lines, pay attention to contracts and what you sign obligates you to commitments that may not be right for you.

Just because others have signed quickly or accepted responsibilities and obligations do not mean that you need to do the same. We have free will, which gives us the possibility to do good, not so good, or nothing. You have only so much energy to accept obligations. Use your power wisely and on what benefits you. You do not have to be like everyone else, be yourself, uniquely yourself.

Trust in yourself, your intuition, your wisdom and a clear mind to make the right decision and only accept obligations that are beneficial to you.

Queen of the Moon Oracle – Trust

This is the time to cultivate and grow trust in yourself, your actions, thoughts and deeds. If you do, then good things will materialize.

Self-trust is magnetic; it is the foundation of all other trusts that we develop and use with people and things in our lives. Self-trust brings self-respect and self-confidence. Above all, it brings a more profound and more appreciative knowing of ourselves.

When you know yourself and trust your actions and abilities, you start to encounter an abundant life, a life when all things are possible. All are achievable, and your natural creativity brings good things into your life.
