After we faced an issue that saw us vacillating and struggling with ourselves, we may have decided thatwe don’t need the assistance of others and can manage on our own. As a consequence, we feel a lot more empowered as well as more hopeful about the future and adjust our priorities accordingly, now that we can gain control over our circumstances if we only trust in our capabilities and resourcefulness. We will feel more animated, determined and action-oriented once the Moon shifts into Aries in the early afternoon. Per example, I was a bit discouraged at first when I started working on my chest. It seemed like such an immense effort when I would rather have gone a walk in this beautiful sunshine. But the nice weather allowed me to do this project on my balcony and after a while I got into the ‘hang’ of it. In the end, I was really proud of myself and touched up the living room cabinet too, thinking it was really not that big of a deal. Today I will have to complete the project and paint the bottom of the chest, flipping it around, once the Sun will be back on my balcony. I still have a large table to paint, which could happen next weekend if the conditions are right. It’ll be easier to tackle that one after I’ve mastered the first project successfully and satisfactorily.
Tarot card of the day is “The Moon”, suggesting that some things are hidden from conscious view, making it necessary to look well below the surface in order to find clarity or truth. On the other hand, invisible things could be brought to the surface and unforeseen perils could be experienced. This card has moreover the potential to project fears into the present and future based on past ordeals. Repressed thoughts, images and feelings could cause overwhelming disturbances. We might be longing for sleep. It is important to remedy this for which we need to go through a purging process, thereby releasing deep memories. The Moon is a card of illusion and deception, and therefore often suggests a time when something is not as it appears, causing errors in our judgment. It is also possible that we may have lost our way and are now left to walk in the dark, guided only by our inner light and intuition. Nonetheless, we need to go on without a clear picture of where we are or where we are going. It is true that things are vague and illusive, neither clear nor certain or definitive in any way and that therefore we may be torn between many influences, which could distract us from following our core path. The more important is it to reflect upon our life and to use our intuitive abilities or listen to our inner voice to get in touch with our vision. Renewal is possible and secrets may be revealed as we’re walking these dreamscapes. The Moon is moreover a symbol of the turning tides and can refer to healing abilities and other psychic or intuitive work.
