As we welcome in a new month, let’s take a few moments to connect to the energy ahead and see where we need to place our focus and attention.
I believe it’s important to take a balanced approach by looking at all areas of our lives — body, mind & spirit.
What can we do to feel nourished from the inside out so that we can shine this month?
I’ve put together an oracle card reading to help you answer that question and to help you navigate the month ahead!
(If you’re interested, I used The Psychic Tarot oracle deck by John Holland & The Enchanted Map oracle deck by Colette Baron-Reid for this reading.)
-NOURISH YOUR BODY –
The Fertility card is all about creation and growth. Just like seeds require a nurturing & nourishing environment to grow into strong and healthy plants, your body also requires a nurturing & nourishing environment to stay healthy and strong.
The Fertility card also represents our feminine side and Mother Earth, which brings a gentle strength, as well as love and compassion. Ask yourself where you can be more gentle and compassionate with your body. Spend some time in nature to really experience that soothing, nurturing energy.
This month, focus on listening to your body. Move and fuel your body in a way that feels good, rather than trying to force it into the diet or fitness craze of the moment. Remember that the care and attention you give yourself now will be reflected in how your body feels and functions in the future.
-NOURISH YOUR MIND-
The Authority card represents our masculine side as well as sometimes representing an authority figure in our life. Just like we need the nurturing & compassion from our feminine side, we also need the strength and power of our masculine side.
When it comes to our mind, the Authority card is calling us to become leaders in our lives. It’s encouraging us to not only tap into our own inner wisdom and power, but also to make decisions from that place and act confidently as you move forward. It’s asking us to take control of our thoughts and keep them in check before our fears and worries get the best of us.
It’s fascinating that both the Fertility card and the Authority card came up in this reading. They are both Major Arcana cards and are cards number three & four in the deck. This month, we are obviously being called to draw on both our masculine and feminine energy, by bringing in more flow physically and more structure mentally!
-NOURISH YOUR SPIRIT-
Card: Movement, Choices, Decisions
With a card like Movement, Choices, Decisions showing up, it might be a bit of a hectic or overwhelming month. You may be faced with several choices or decisions to make. Change will definitely be in the air!
In order to nourish your spirit this month, it will be important that you stay centered and focused. Listen to your inner voice as any changes or choices surface and watch for signs & synchronicities that will be helping to guide you down the right path.
This card really rounds out the message of the first 2 cards: Nurturing & nourishing your body and staying focused mentally will be essential in coping with any stress or overwhelm this month.
If you’re bringing in both the feminine and masculine in that way, you’ll have a much easier time making the necessary choices and actions that will be called for this month. Trust that your inner guidance will help to guide you and keep taking the next step, even when you can’t see the big picture.
-WHAT TO BRING IN-
Card: Wide Open
I asked the question, What do we need to call in (or what do we need more of) to help us really shine this month?
The Wide Open card answered that question: more of you!
This card challenges you to show up fully expressed and authentic in the world. No more hiding! Bring everything you’ve got to the table. Don’t be afraid to express yourself and your thoughts. Show up and participate fully in your life, and you’ll be amazed at the results!
-WHAT TO LET GO-
Card: Details, Details
I then asked the question, What do we need to let go of (or what do we need less of) to help us really shine this month?
The Details, Details card answered that question: the small stuff.
Just like the book series says, don’t sweat the small stuff. Don’t worry about all the little annoyances and frustrations that come up this month. Do your best to just let it go. Don’t stress when you don’t have a plan fully laid out. Work with what you’ve got and give yourself some grace! When negative thoughts come into your mind, notice them, acknowledge them, thank them, and then send them on their way!
Card: Field of Dreams
I love this parting message for November: Now is the perfect time to step into the life you desire.
No matter what’s happened in your past, you have nothing but opportunity all around you now. There’s so much potential at your fingertips! Go within, listen, set an intention and then go for it! Now is the time!
