Monday Mooncards – 19/10/20.

Full Moons are about bringing things to their conclusion, letting go and this card can suggest endings in friendships, relationships, working partnerships, and so on.

This is the right time for such an ending. It’s time to put your trust in the universe and let go. Trust that what is happening serves a purpose in your life, trust that this is right for you.

The win-win aspect is giving permission for you to focus on yourself. Letting go of something can leave you with a sense of emptiness, use that void to focus on you.

Alternatively there is the suggestion of an ending to altercations that have blighted you. Arguments. Upsets. They are falling away and things are looking up.

When you let go of anything it is normal to feel lost. Take care of yourself. Trust in the process. Be kind to yourself and love you.

Trust that life is moving you forward to better things.

If you’ve been feeling paranoid and acting weird, you can take this card as a very direct message from the Universe that you can stop now.

Worrying yourself is pointless. It’s time to release any negativity that has built up around your situation.

If you’re worrying about how a person has been treating you, then it’s time to let that go. Release any anger you have. Release any negative feelings. This doesn’t mean you’ve let them win, on the contrary, letting the situation go (and quite often the person/people) is very liberating. Forgiving them frees you.

Letting negativity go is the best possible thing for us to do. Holding on to all that anger, resentment, hatred, it gets us nowhere. In fact, it can often make us ill. Best to let it all go.

You can write about the situation on a piece of paper, read it through and then burn it. Alternatively you can tear the paper into tiny pieces and flush it down the toilet – you could use toilet paper if you’d rather flush that instead.

Just breathe. Then let go.

Monday Mooncards – 28/09/20

This card suggests that the past is in the past and a bright future is beckoning. Before moving forward though, make sure that both you and the situation are healed. The card is advising us not to paper over the cracks of the situation, and not to pretend that everything is ok. Whilst the future looks bright, we still need to take care of what is not ok in the here and now. Only then will we be able to move forward to our bright futures.

Once the healing has begun it is time to remind ourselves that anything is possible. At this time we might hear guidance from spirit/the Universe. It is when we surrender to the divine that we receive the guidance that we most need to hear.

Once we have begun to heal we can start moving forward towards our dreams. Investing in self care now allows us to heal, move forward, and be prepared for the future we are moving towards.

Healing situations, no matter how painful, always helps to move us forward. There is always hope. We always have the choice to move forward, but in doing so we must heal what is holding us back.

Moonday Cards – 21/09/20

The end of a tough cycle approaches. The end of a rough time is forecast when this card is drawn. Release control and trust in the Universe. It’s time to stop fearing the worst.

How hard are you willing to work for what it is you desire? This card is a reminder that to achieve what we want, we must work hard and put it the effort.

Are you ambitious? Are you prepared to pull out all of the stops to make your professional dreams a reality?

This card is telling us that tough times are behind us. This card is telling us that if we work hard we can make our dreams a reality.

Once again I’m blown away by the accuracy in these cards. They are always on point with whatever is going on in my life and the messages are always clear.

I hope that this is the case for anyone who feels drawn to this card – or any card I draw for Monday Mooncards. If you feel called and drawn to this card then this message is for you too.

Monday Mooncards – 14/09/20

It never ceases to amaze me how these cards work in sync with me. I do share them on here, there’s a message for everyone who cares to accept it, but they are also a message for me too.

Right now in my life I’m embarking on transformation and beginning a new chapter in my life. It’s the same me, but perhaps with a different side showing. So how very apt this card is!

The message is also one of letting go, whether that be of a person or a situation, you will know which it is.

Detaching from a situation allows you to let your true self shine through and show the world who you really are.

Shine bright like a diamond.

Moonday Moon Cards – 07/09/20

This card indicates that whilst change is in the air, nothing is yet set set in stone and there’s still room to manoeuvre.

Tell yourself “I know that the best will unfold for me.”

There’s room for flexibility in your plans, they aren’t yet final so make sure you are clear on what you want. If you fee some things need tweaking, now is the time to do this.

Staying adaptable is the key to success for you now.

Moonday Card – 31/08/20

There is a YES coming your way. This card is one of the most auspicious cards in the deck; it’s a very positive card and suggests something new and exciting is developing.

The message from the Universe is that you’re starting all over again in some way. If you’ve been feeling stagnant in any area of your life, this card is reminding you that life goes in cycles and you’re moving into a new cycle now.

This is the time to wipe the slate clean. You will soon start to feel more hopeful about the direction your life is going to go in.

Monday Mooncards

This card is so appropriate for me today, I can tell you! I’m facing a really challenging week and the accuracy here, for me, is amazing.

This card suggests a rebirth. It asks us to think of the situations that hold us in fear as the Phoenix that is rising from the ashes.

It’s also time to let go of any grudges you’re holding onto. Move on from jealousy. Stop being obsessive.

Scorpio energy can be dark and intense. There’s always the sense of needing to work through our shadow side – how else do we get the rebirth, right?

Working through your shadow self/side transforms you. It propels your forward into the light – bringing awareness to so much darkness within you, granted, it’s not all bad. But working with these energies helps you to understand the persona you hide from the world.

That darker side of ourselves that can leave us fearing what we might do if we ever allowed that part of ourselves out into the daylight.

But working on this shadow self is so enlightening and transformative. So if this card resonates with you then you know what you need to do.

Monday Moon Cards – 10/08/20

Whatever is coming your way, it looks set to put a smile on your face. This card is saying to you that after a period of feeling low, fun will return to your life.

Don’t take too many risks though, whilst this card promises adventure, it’s not wise to take too many risks right now. What you can do is play with ideas, make plans, talk to other people about these plans and ideas..

This card can be an indicator of a trip coming up, so this is definitely a good card if that’s what your plans are. Whatever happens next, know that there is a gift in store for you.

The teaching of this card is that Sagittarius is the sign of fun, travel, exploration, and the Great Cosmic Quest. It’s the sign of big ideas due to its expansive and upbeat energy.

This card is also telling you to dream big, due to the positivity of this card, good sign for whatever you are trying to manifest right now.

Shadow Work.

I was called to write this post after recent events in my life.

During the pandemic and lockdown my PTSD was triggered so badly that my GP has put me back on anti-depressants. This was a long thought out decision, one I resisted for so long.

But taking the meds has brought my hyper vigilance under some semblance of control, it’s also shifted my mood from dark and bleak to one of optimism. This has led me to doing a lot of inner/shadow work on myself.

Staring back at the dark side of yourself, when all that’s been presenting for the past three years is the dark side, is no bundle of fun. How I have acted, reacted, treat people, shunned people for reasons I cannot even fathom now, that is an ugly and dark place to be rooting around in.

This self reflection upon the dark side of myself has shown me how wounded I am inside. That’s not an excuse, it’s the truth of what shows up for people affected by trauma. Healing that part of me is my priority right now. I want to say how this feels, but I cannot find the right words to express this.

The up side of doing this shadow work is all of the tools I am being give access to. Tools I am able to use on myself to aide my recovery. Part of the work I am doing deals with my inner child. The results of this work have been amazing. The youngest part of me is all good. The seven year old part of me hurts because this was when my seemingly perfect life was shattered – my Dad had a heart attack. Being told this tore my perfect, innocent childhood down.

The pre teen part of me is all good, as is thirteen year old me. At fourteen I rebelled and fifteen year old me has issues. This is even before sixteen year old me is brutally attacked.

Fifteen year old me hurts. She hurts because people around her don’t treat her very well, but at the time I didn’t notice. So I carry this hurt around with me and then I get attacked and my inner child is hurt beyond belief.

This is very much a work in progress. It’s dark, it’s painful, it’s triggering and in the present I’m struggling to deal with rejection in any way. And I was rejected for something just recently. Being turned down when you’re dealing with grief stricken, traumatised, betrayed and hurt parts of yourself isn’t pleasant.

Job rejection. Friend requests denied. Overlooked for positions that I am probably more than qualified for. This is just a small sample of the recent rejections that are showing up and triggering my inner child. Present me understands rejection as being a normal process in life, it is what it is. Inner child me is hurting and screaming in pain. She isn’t seeing this as just a normal part of life, she’s seeing it as a massive kick in the teeth.

“What have I ever done to you” that’s the cry I hear over and over again from my wounded inner child.

Doing shadow work is really hard. It takes its toll on you and leaves you feeling tender hearted and heart sore. That said, I’m already seeing the benefits of it; the younger me, seven year old, she’s doing fine now. Doing that work really cleared so much inner turmoil and long-standing grief, and I feel more able to work on teenage me. This one is taking longer. She’s really hurting.

I can’t say how long this recovery process will take, it certainly isn’t going to be a quick process. The darkness inside is all consuming, but I have tools to shine light into this darkness. We will get there, me and my teenage self.

If you’re ever considering doing shadow work and have struggled with depression, or even another mental health issue, I recommend speaking to your care provider first. Prior to doing this work I had the blessing of both my GP and therapist. This work can lead you down a very dark path and you need to be prepared for what comes up.
