Gonna Fly (from the Lefty Oracle Deck) by Kathy Crabbe

Leo Full Moon Oracle Card: Gonna Fly

Mantra: I change.
Affirmation: I am free to be me.
Element: Air

I'm ready to go.
To fly right outta here.
I know no boundaries on earth or elsewhere; above or below.
I am a force of nature; divine in body AND soul.
My magick fills me with purpose and freedom and yes, flight.
I surrender.
I let go.
I am free to be me.

If this card appears in a reading either your spirit or your physical body, or both are ready to fly, move, shake things up, make a change, shift directions, vamoose! Perhaps this will enable you to see things from a different perspective or perhaps you’ll actually shift your reality in a big way by making a major change in your life. Whether big or small, this card signifies change. So embrace it, welcome it, prepare for it ‘cause it’s a coming…soon.

In my own life I kept pulling this card over and over until it felt like my mascot. I didn’t yet know what direction it would take me, but I opened my heart to receive and surrender to guidance and change. And move forward I did without mental distraction and this is how the Lefty Oracle deck and guidebook was birthed and exhibited in a fine art museum for all to see!

*Gonna Fly is from my upcoming Lefty Oracle Deck coming out Spring 2017.

Leo Goddess - Cybele by Kathy Crabbe

Leo Goddess - Cybele by Kathy Crabbe

Cybele Mountain Mother,
Great goddess earth,
In divine madness we worship
And celebrate her birth.

Cybele or “Mountain Mother” is an Earth Goddess originally worshipped in Turkey.  She appears as a full-breasted and mature woman carrying corn and keys and wearing a crown and robe the color of all the flowers of the earth over which she ruled.

We’re two Leo ladies with a passion for beauty. We want to give every woman the gift of feeling strong, sensual and beautiful – to feel that little warm purr inside that makes her move with dignity, like a feline.

When we work, we really work hard to hunt down the sweetest zebra, and when we rest it’s all about occasionally twitching an ear to fend off the flies.

Our creative process comes in a burst of brilliant bi-polar energy and results in a fat stack of sketch papers, later to be sorted and polished sharp and shiny before the actual production takes place.

It’s like this: color, shape, lines, tones…our little visual carnivore hearts start beating faster.

Add texture, weight, drape…we’re together running for the prey, tiring it down. And then detail, fitting, final snips…it’s there and we’re feasting, dancing around the room wearing it, making poses, laughing, taking photos.

The imagination demands to be materialized, there’s nothing we can do about it. We walk with the Sun and the Sun shines with us.
