Here's what my cards have to say about the next two weeks - October Full Moon 2016
Okay, so I've been waffling about doing this here, but earlier this week was Face Your Fears Day and it seemed like a good time to see how it goes. I've been working on my own personal oracle card system for years now, and using it consistently for my own readings for months now, and I thought maybe people out in the world might want to see what they have to say?
The pictures aren't even started, and they're literally the most basic physical objects ever, but they're here and they're giving me guidance, whether from the Universe or from my own subconscious*, and here's what they have to say to you guys.
Air (reversed) means a problem with flightiness, being too "breezy", communication, or being too much in your own mind and not enough in the more solid and heavy parts of your being, like your emotions or your body. There may be issues with inspiration, or with translating inspiration into things people can understand. Maybe could indicate an actual problem with air, too: allergies, pollution, damaging winds or weather.
Rest (reversed) means either that there won't be much chance to rest (which makes sense since two weeks from now when the Dark Moon hits and I'll do my next reading is Halloween!), or that the rest you've had isn't what you need or the quality you need. It means there's a problem with your rest-cycle--you're not sleeping enough, you're working too hard, you're too stressed out, you don't have enough downtime. Beware burning yourself out, and try to find time to just unwind and recoup what you're putting out into the world.
And Birth (upright) means there's a new thing coming, something that's never existed before will be coming into your life, and it may hurt to get there, but it'll be worth it. This is a time for gentleness, intimacy, and learning everything you can to be better at what you do. You're right at the middle of something, and it's your job to wonder at all the newness and grow into whatever you're working on.
Together, the three mean that things could be sort of stressful in the immediate future, that there could be communication and inspiration issues, and that you need to be sure you're getting the rest you need and being gentle with everything, but that it'll lead to something new and awesome.
So keep your eyes open and be good to yourselves, 'kay, readers? If you were looking for guidance, this is for you. How can you look at your situation through this filter to help you figure it out?
*I don't think I think that oracles are magical--they just bring stuff you're not thinking about or facing consciously out into the open where you have to look at it. But that doesn't mean that there isn't patterns in the world and the universe that affect which subconscious things you look at each reading.
