Leo New Moon Oracle: Caava Kicks Butt

Caava Kicks Butt by Kathy Crabbe

New Moon Lefty Oracle:
Caava kicks butt

Mantra: I am strong.
Affirmation: I mean business.
Element: Fire

I am a mean machine.
I love conflict,
getting angry,
and kicking butt.

But that’s not all!

I’m also charming, gracious,
well put-together and make
a mean strawberry/rhubarb pie.

So, don’t judge me
‘til you know me
and I’ll do the same for you.

If this card appears in a reading it’s self-evident that you need to take a stand. Who or what needs the boot in your life? Bolster your strength and courage and do something about it. NOW. Reach out for support. You don’t have to do this alone. Your heart is in the right place and you WILL move forward. There is a time and a place to take action and that time has come. Don’t charge in madly until you know exactly what you need to do. Write it down or talk it over with a friend if need be. Then move forward, one spiked toe at a time and it’s done. Good work, brave soul!

In my own life I usually like to wait to take action in regards to a grievance until I feel the fire in my veins. I’ve prepared for that moment by thinking and talking it through so I’m ready with the power of emotion and intellect for when I do take action and it gets results!

Creative Journal Prompt
Take a moment to pretend that you are climbing the tallest mountain around and that you have just reached the very top. Look around. Breathe the air, feel the exhilaration, the quiet peacefulness AND the pounding of your heart. We can be both: quiet and exhilarated. Take another moment to feel this duality within yourself. Now add a third element: knowing-ness. Then take one goal and apply these three elements to it while journaling and leave extra space in your journal entry so that you can record your progress over time.

Expressive Body Movement Challenge
Pretend that you have just climbed the aforementioned mountain. Then re-enact the part where you reach the top. What do you do? Express all three elements discussed above using expressive body movement. i.e. quiet, exhilarated, knowing.

Happy New Moon in Cancer!

Happy New Moon in Cancer! This is a great time to go within, sink into the beauty and ponder the deep questions. To help you I've pulled a Lefty Oracle Card and include her Mantra and what she means below.

Gloria simply adored herself  

Mantra: I am respected.

Affirmation: I am fabulous and so are you!

Element: Air

If this card appears in a reading you need appreciation, respect and love from yourself. It’s time to take a stand and show the world your truth. If you lack confidence or fear exposure, start small and acknowledge your truth in your heart first and then choose one other person to share it with; someone who will listen and hear all you have to say. Each day take one more baby step and tell one more person. It may be through writing or art or singing or crafting or baking, but know that it’s an expression of your truth in all its beauty.

In my own life I choose to share the best of myself through my monthly writing and art at the new and full moon in my online museletter and on my blog.l

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.
