Good evening, Sacred Souls! Here are your cards from today’s Monday Magic! They come to us from Collette Baron Reid’s “Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards” deck.
1. UNFINISHED SYMPHONY (10)
Unfinished business; an incomplete lesson; lack of closure; the need to make amends.
THE ORACLE’S MESSAGE
This is a time to tie up loose ends as you near the completion of a cycle or project and mastery of a lesson or skill. Before you can move forward, it’s important that you come to terms with where you are now. Practice radical acceptance. Take inventory so that emotional and psychological closure can occur and the answers you seek will be found. You can’t move forward if you are leaving things unfinished. Reflect on what has passed so that the symphony can finally end on a high note.
Moving on is difficult when love lingers, things are left unsaid, and you haven’t had the opportunity for closure in your relationship and in your heart. You can still feel bound up in relationships when closure is denied you. It’s important to achieve this for yourself. Write that letter, make that call, or have that conversation over a cup of coffee. For peace of mind, accept matters as they are, make amends if need be, and declare your feelings, even if only to yourself. Be clear about what was left unresolved, and close the door on the past so you can set yourself free. Only then can new love blossom.
Make sure you complete projects now before starting new ones. Perhaps you have created something special that will increase your sense of abundance and bring you opportunities for wealth. However, if you don’t see it through, it won’t add up to anything but more clutter. Now is the time to put your nose to the grindstone and complete the tasks that have accumulated. Pay your bills, sign the documents, do your filing, hand in an assignment, complete a work of art. Tie up loose ends so you can move forward with surety, knowing you’re on the prosperous path and feeling refreshed and excited about the future.
When unfinished business casts a shadow over your life, it is a reminder that procrastination is a form of self-sabotage. It is not in your best interest to stall. Even stumbling forward is better than holding back. Don’t overthink things or let yourself get distracted - just tie up any loose ends and deliver the results. Don’t quit before the finish line. Spirit wants you to win.
2. WHY? (31)
Motives driving intention; the power of knowing the “why.”
THE ORACLES MESSAGE
There is great power in understanding your motives right now. The Oracle asks you to be very clear about why you’re asking this question, looking for this answer, behaving in this way, and, most important, making this choice. Knowing your “why” is the key to fulfillment. When you are clear about it, your intention will then be a magnet for miracles. Motives define the nature of your experience - when you think about something, feel it, and then act on it. This invisible “why” is the life-force energy within the seed, which brings it to life and holds the potential for growth.
We don’t always know why we engage in our relationships in the way we do, mostly because our feelings aren’t always logical. Now is the time to recognize whether you are being triggered by someone else, or if your behavior is motivated by unresolved issues in the past. When you ask yourself, Why am I feeling like this? and Why did I say that? and spend some time in introspection, the answers may be surprising. Listen to the messages from your intuition, from the knowing deep within you. What does it tell you about yourself and others? In the end, life is all about being loved. Miracles, and a deep understanding of your needs and how to get them met, are the buried treasures of the “why.” Uncover them by posing the most powerful question you can ask yourself and your partner today: Why?
Knowing the motives behind your career and creative ventures is the ticket to your greatest success. It’s time to ask yourself some probing questions. Are you driven by a desire to serve? Does your prosperity impact the greater good? when you envision your most prosperous life, are you guided by a sense of purpose or by a need to make money, acquire things, save for the future... or all of these? No motive is bad or good, but having agendas hidden from yourself will lead to disappointment and possibly failure. Be clear about why you what the things you do. If the motives are true, accept them. If they are not, change them so you can step into your extraordinary life.
Sometimes subconsciously denying the truth may drive you toward a specific outcome that actually aligns with an intention hidden from your awareness. For example, you may want to be prominent in your profession, but your desire is not really about sharing your talents but about making yourself feel better, because fame would cause people to admire and approve of you. Or you may want to reunite with the partner who rejected you because you believe that your love continues to be strong, but deep down what you really desire is to have the last word with that person. Now is the time for deep soul-searching of the “why” that drives your choices. What you uncover will set you free and bring you ever closer to the happiness you seek.
3. TIME FOR A NAP (24)
Rest, rejuvenation, and renewal; temporary non-action; allowing dreams to rise
THE ORACLE’S MESSAGE
This is a time to step away and rest. Let the cares of your world go. Go into a state of non-action, and allow yourself to be free of the shackles of your goals, your lists, your desires. Nothing is as important as rest, detachment, and neutrality. The overly busy mind can block you from inner wisdom if you don’t step back, take a seat, and rest. Be willing to let dreams surface and ideas flow through you, absent any force or conscious direction, as you observe without engagement now.
When it comes to matters of the heart, don’t make any plans right now. If you’re not partnered, it’s good to take this time out to get to know yourself. If you’re involved with someone, relax and just be with your partner. This is going to be an uneventful moment in time. Don’t force anything now. Allow things to flow naturally and a beautiful renewal will take place by itself. Patience is th key to your heart’s desire right now. Withdraw from action in your relationship, and give it a rest so that your love and connection can become rejuvenated.
This is a great time to take a break from your busy schedule and allow yourself the opportunity to step back . Your plans are meant to be put on ice. Your goals can wait. Dream, imagine, and let go of attachments to any outcome now. Meditate, and take a holiday if you can. Things will speed up soon enough. After a break, you may want to make some changes. Epiphanies have an amazing way of arising when you take your focus off your to-do list and allow yourself to rest.
You are a human being, not a human doing. Is it possible you’re suffering from workaholism? Could you be the one who thinks it’s your job to save everyone; to be there for everyone; and to go, go, go until you can barely see straight? You’ve gone as far as you can. You’ve worked hard and nourished people and projects, but now you are an empty well and have no reserves for others or for yourself. Don’t let your ego keep you going full speed when your body and spirit need rest. Exhaustion is calling you to stop what you’re doing altogether and take a break. If you don’t, the appearance of this card could portend a possible illness that stems from being totally overwhelmed. You will feel like a new person if you take that break. Do it now.
Each Monday, three cards are drawn at random from a deck of shuffled oracle cards and are posted on Facebook`where those who feel guided can choose a card for the week. The cards are revealed here before midnight each Monday. To participate, like BLISS-WORX on Facebook and you can join in the fun!
