Moon in Libra: Lefty Oracle Card Reveal

The Lefty Card Reveal featured here is from my Daily Moon Vibes post for the Moon in Libra Dec. 28 - Dec. 30.

The Liar at the crossroads by Kathy Crabbe

Lefty Oracle Card 1: The Liar at the Crossroads

Mantra: I forgive.
Affirmation: I stand up for me, not neg-a-tiv-ity. I choose truth.
Element: Spirit

If this card appears in a reading it’s time to get honest and ask yourself these questions:

1.      Am I telling any lies right now?
2.      Who could be telling me lies?
3.      What lies are festering inside me that need to come out?

If you feel a black ball of tangled negative energy within it could be a lie; a lie told to you by society, your family, a friend. Shine the light of truth upon this black ball to help bring the lie to the surface and root it out. This lie is NOT you. It is a thought form that has grown within you and gained strength. It needs to be faced before you can move on. Lies are sneaky beasts and need watching so that they do not snowball and cause greater mischief and irreparable harm. Forgiveness of self and others along with the making of reparations is important so that when you do move on it’s with a clean and clear conscience.

In my own life I have seen this black ball buried deep within a client during a soul reading. I gently, so gently, was guided to tell her what I sensed. We didn’t confront things head on because often crab-like sideways motion is necessary in the beginning so that the lies can be observed and dealt with from different angles. I also channeled some healing techniques and tools to provide her with practical ways to help her help herself.

Skell by Kathy Crabbe

Lefty Oracle Card 2: Skell

Mantra: I am loving.
Affirmation: I create from the heart.
Element: Water

When this card appears in a reading it indicates that you are going for it full-tilt; heart on your sleeve, emotions exposed. Your will, your intent, your heart and soul are aligned now as you reach out and express your desire.

In my own life I put my heart on the line in every painting and soul reading I do. My work is all about heart. It can be a risky road, but I have faith in myself and my work and I carry on, no matter what. The work sustains me as much as it does those who receive it. What a blessing!

Jules pussy-cat with a tiger-heart by Kathy Crabbe

Lefty Oracle Card 3: Jules, pussy-cat with a tiger-heart

Mantra: I am independent.
Affirmation: My inner feline is ready to roarrr!    
Element: Earth

If this card appears in a reading there is hope! Whatever is bothering you have faith that you’ll pull through because your heart is BIG and your courage is growing. You may not feel up to it, but you are. Trust the message of this card.

In my own life I have a few friends that inspired this card. Their gentle, soft nature cleverly hides their tiger heart; fierce, protective and wild.

My Lefty on Exhibit at Ground Floor Gallery

I'm very pleased to announce that my Lefty "Full of it" (pictured left) will be part of the BARED exhibit at the Ground Floor Gallery. This exhibition explores the gendered narratives that clothe and fashion the body as well as gender subversion and the traditional male gaze. It was curated by Sally Deskins and features the work of selected artists from the book of the same name, published in January 2017 by Les Femmes Folles. The exhibit runs from August 2 - September 2, 2017. 

Interestingly enough when I was recently chatting with Susun Weed on her radio show she mentioned that the Goddess Ephesus who was my inspiration for "Full of it" might possibly be sprouting rows of testicles, not breasts as I had originally thought.  Hmmmm...food for thought!
