Welcome to the New Moon. The faeries have three cards for us this time: UNDressing of a Salad, The Guardian at the Gate, and Honesty (reversed).
It’s pretty easy to dress a salad—you just choose the ingredients you want and toss them together. UNDressing a salad requires significantly more dexterity. This card in a reading indicates that we might be in a situation that seems impossible; separating truth from untruth, appropriate action from inappropriate, is always a challenge. And we might be looking at the jumble in our bowl thinking, “There is no way I can ever sort this out.” And, of course, we might be feeling pretty bad because WE are probably the ones who filled the bowl to begin with. But, the Faeries say, with patience and the right attitude, we CAN sort it out. In fact, they say, the chaos we are sorting through could end up being the source of something pretty amazing—but we have to be willing to do the work.
The Guardian at the Gate says; UNdressing of a Salad IS possible, and in fact we’re on the verge of finding the way, or at least taking the first right step. The very presence of this Guardian suggests that we are ready to step over the threshold. Of course we always have a choice in the matter, but The Guardian says now is a good time, and this particular confluence of circumstances will never come again. If we are uncertain, we can ask for guidance and help; we’ll get it.
Honesty, reversed, wants to ask if we are being honest with ourselves and each other. Is there something we don’t want to see, something we don’t want to know? Are we holding ourselves back with false ideas? Honesty says it’s time to look at the situation clearly, and especially, to tell ourselves the truth about what we want and where we want to go. This honesty with ourselves is essential for this process of sorting out the tangles that we are ready to embark on. We shouldn’t be afraid to tell ourselves the truth.
This reading was a general message from the faeries for the readers of the blog. If you’re interested in purchasing a reading specifically for you or someone you love, see my Etsy shop.
