New Moon in Taurus Inspiration

Mummy from the Lefty Oracle Deck by Kathy Crabbe

Mummy from the Lefty Oracle Deck by Kathy Crabbe

This month as I sat with Lefty Oracle card of the month (Mummy) and pondered this New Moon in Taurus (April 26) these thoughts came to me:

Why do we do anything?

To be of service, of course, and to support our own growth and that of Mother Earth and all her denizens.

How are you of service? And how does being of service tap into and express your own sacred gifts?

When we express the love we have inside we ARE being of service. If we need to be flashy and show-offy, is this our true self, or just our ego saying 'look at me!'

In this self obsessed world we live in, I heard online that it's now a radical act to take a walk and NOT share it online!

Why not come up with your own radical act for NOT sharing online? I challenge you to try this out at least until the next Full Moon (May 10). Try making time for a walk in nature without your cell phone or camera. I'm going to try NOT checking my phone first thing after I get up.

When I was a young girl in the 1970's I had a premonition about just how BIG a part screens would play in our lives and how avoiding getting sucked in would be one of THE most important things we could do to help ourselves be ourselves. I love computers, but hey, they're addictive, right? (Check out Wim Wenders' movie from 1991, Until the End of the World for some interesting observations and of course Aldous Huxley's book, Brave New World).

Lefty Oracle of the Month: Mummy

When you pull this card in a reading
it’s definitely not a time to charge forward. You need to lay low and take care of yourself right now. Self care is number one, so find a way to nurture yourself body, mind and soul. You deserve it.

In my own life, when I painted this card I actually had a cold and was feeling very inward, needing time to recover and take care of myself first. (excepted from the Lefty Oracle Deck Guidebook)

Lefty Oracle Card

Lefty Oracle Card: Now the Real work begins

I am ready.
I know what I must do.
The ‘real work’
is the only work that matters.

It’s the work I was born to do.
It’s the work that calls to my soul
and takes me out of my petty, small self
and into my BIG picture self.

I am in alignment with the flow, the zone
and I am moving forward
in conscious awareness of each step.

I am poised.
I am graceful.
I am grateful for being here today.

When this card appears in a reading it means business. What IS your ‘real work’; the work that matters to you on a soul-deep level? The work you MUST do before you die. Define that first. Then ask yourself, “Am I doing my ‘real work’ consistently or is it even on my radar?” If your ‘real work’ is still a mystery to you, it’s time to awaken to your soul’s calling and uncover your true gifts. You can start by looking back at your childhood and pin-pointing your favorite parts. Next, look at your current favorite activities or times when you’ve been so absorbed you lost track of time. If nothing comes to you, ask a friend to point out your strengths or take the StrengthsFinder test (from the book StrengthsFinder by Tom Rath).

In my own life I purchased the StrengthsFinder book, took the test and identified my top five strengths which helped me focus on my strengths rather than my weaknesses so that I could truly shine.
