“Powerful psychic insights. Reflection and meditation that provides valuable information. Be at peace.”
An incredibly fitting card for the dark moon. The High Priestess stands elegantly between the pillars of Jason and Boaz, guarding the secrets that lie behind the veil. Spend this week listening to your inner wisdom, let your higher self guide you toward the things you would like to manifest most not only in this current cycle, but in 2017. Develop your psychic and intuitive abilities. Doing so will ensure that you remain soulful and aligned on your journey forward.
12/7 - Waxing Moon - The Moon
“The opportunity to improve your plans. Listen to your intuition for accurate guidance. Face your fears and grow stronger!”
The moon is the guiding light, illuminating our path when we start to go astray. During the waxing moon, it’s time to get down to business. This is the week of creative energy and growth. Think of it like a seedling has sprouted from last week’s intention, and it’s up to you to nourish it into maturity. However, it can be difficult not to be pulled off course. After all, taking action often means making decisions, and sometimes those choices end up being mistakes. We can sometimes let these moments pull us off track, they can overwhelm us, or paralyze us and keep us from making progress. Don’t get lost in small defeats or let your head swarm with too much information. Keep your eye on the goals you have already set and use the power of this moon to give you the energy needed to keep taking steps towards the future you want.
12/13 - Full Moon - The Magician
“You can manifest the life you want. What you need will magically appear! Successful beginnings." Now that you’ve taken the right steps forward, and created something magical, it’s time to share it with others. Inspire the world with your amazing talent! Remember to stay balanced and to implement all the tools and resources at your disposal. If you fell off track last week, use the powerful energy of the full moon to get you back on focus. Success is available, but not to the undeserving. Having ideas and dreams are a great start, but it takes an incredible magician to bring it into the tangible world and create something from it that’s valuable to others. Keep up the good work.
12/20 - Waning Moon - Six of Gabriel
“Congratulations, you’ve done a wonderful job! Time to move on to the next project. Awards, scholarships, or promotions.”
I just don’t see how a better card could have been drawn for this moon! The victory card is extremely benevolent. You have manifested your goals for this moon cycle, took action towards achieving them, successfully shared it with those who need and appreciate it and now you can sit back and reap the rewards! Hard work pays off, and now it's time to rejuvenate yourself. Take a weekend vacation, sleep in, take a few days off and enjoy the progress you’ve made. Find closure with this cycle. Think about your struggles and your successes and be proud of yourself. Even if mistakes were made and you became lost or found failure, those mistakes will be the fertilizer for next cycle’s planting. Release the energy of this cycle and prepare to receive the energy of the next chapter.
Overall Message of this Moon Cycle
Ten of Gabriel
“Ask your angels for helpful people to lighten your load. Working too many hours. Trying too hard to please others.”
The holiday season often brings a mountain of stress. On top of your normal work and life responsibilities, you’ve got presents to buy, parties to attend and extended family to visit. It can start to weigh in on you. This time of year can be hard on everyone. Remember to be gentle with yourself. The winter is a time of reflection. It’s one big waning moon. Use this season to relax, think about the past year and plan for the next. If you try to bury yourself in work or overspend, you’ll end up suffering the consequences of an unbalanced life. Get back to the root of the season, and allow yourself a chance to be less than perfect. Ask for help when you need it, learn to delegate. It’s okay if there are less presents under the tree this year, your family won’t die if your stuffing is a little dry, and it isn’t necessary to attend every single event you’re invited to. It is okay to say NO! After all, it’s supposed to be a season of joy, be kind to yourself.
