Last night I had a relaxing night soaking in the moon’s energies. Took a bath with my girls to honour the alchemy element of water for the winter wolf moon. I really couldn’t see the moon at all last night. I looked a few times, but it was to foggy. I had just cleansed my crystals not too long ago so I wasn’t too worried to place them out in the moon light or not. I was hoping too but I like to be able to see the amazing glow as well as feel it, so I opted out this time. I did how ever decide to do a little tarot reading for myself. I did a three card spread to honour mind, body and spirit. In my Moondaughter Lunar Flow course we were just given information on what crystals compliment the major arcanas. I think I may keep these three cards out until the next full moon with some crystals. I was kinda shocked with my selection and how closely linked mind, body and spirit were! Here is my spread.
4 the Emperor
Meaning: Leadership, Abundance, Yang energy, Royalty
Crystals: emerald, Citrine, Tiger’s Eye, Lapis Lazuli
Meaning: Peace, Honesty, Trust, Truth, speaking truth confidently
Crystals: Amethyst, Flint, Nirvana Quartz, Aquamarine, Lapis Lazuli
3 the Empress
Meaning: Feminine energy, Love and Abundance, Royalty
Crystals: Moonstone, Ruby, Lapis Lazuli
This spread really resonates and ties in with a dream I had the other night of my totem animal a Lioness.
Abundance and power are yours, for you are the lioness.
With the lioness energy within you, you will become a great provider, able to go out into the world, successfully meet the challenges of life and bring home the bounty for yourself and your loved ones. There is no need to worry about whether you will succeed, for you are the lioness.
The lioness will bring you the gift of perfect timing. She will teach you when to lie low and blend with the surroundings and when to leap out and go after what you desire. Your intuitive side will strengthen as you develop the skill of sensing what is around you and knowing exactly when to make your move.
The lioness is also very strong physically, fast and agile. Breathe in deeply and feel her power within you, healing you and bringing you physical strength.
And once home, let her teach you to relax completely, enjoying the company of others, nuzzling and purring as you build a community of safety and abundance. How blessed you are to be the lioness!
What is your totem animal? I’d love to know.
