Happy Spring! This month for our new moon reading I pulled the following cards:
The Rarr, Luathas the Wild, The Maiden
Iris of the Rainbows
Last months we were told that it was time to move forward–or that it would be soon.
Now Indi has turned up in our reading. Indi always shows up when we are paralyzed by indecision, afraid of making the wrong choice. The moment of choice can be incredibly distressing; what if we try something, and fail miserably? What if we SUCCEED spectacularly?! That’s even scarier, isn’t it? And that’s the thing. Succeed or fail, a choice is a scary thing, action is a scary thing. But Indecision is getting us nowhere, and making us miss out on the possibilities. Indi says it’s time to choose–and he wishes we’d get to it, so he could go have some fun.
Fortunately for us, it seems now is a very auspicious time to move. We’ve got a triple dose of encouragement in the next three cards.
The Rarr is pure, unformed possibility, ready to literally bounce off the walls (or the trees, or the skyscrapers, or any other handy solid objects). When The Rarr appears in a reading, it’s a sign that this moment is loaded with potential–and with the energy we need to make things happen. Of course, the Rarr isn’t human, and has no need to be grounded–he/she/it can float and flit and zoom around forever without wearing out. We are, however, very human, and we must remember that it’s important for us to stay grounded right now. It’s important to act–but it’s even MORE important to do so mindfully, listening to our intuition, paying attention to all of our needs. Those needs include physical, mental, spiritual and emotional needs.
Luathas the Wild is also the type to say “Go for it nowwwww!”, and he encourages leaping before we look. And sometimes he has the right idea. Paired with the Rarr, he signifies extra encouragement, and extra caution. Everything is in line for us to create powerful change, to bring our plans to birth. We have the assistance of energies from the new moon, and the growth potential of early spring, as well as a great need to act. But as we prepare to leap into our new plans, we should pay attention to how we define success–and how we go about achieving it. Don’t get so carried away with dreams and plans that you forget where your feet are. In fact, let’s not get carried away at all–instead, let’s step forward boldly, but act consciously. We’ll get where we’re going just the same, and we’ll be in better shape when we get there.
The Maiden is the youthful, spring-like face of the goddess, and she beams on us with bright joy and happiness. There’s no better sign than the appearance of the Maiden to tell us that we are in a good place for a new start, a new venture, or a new stage in an ongoing process. She reminds us to treat our dreams with care as if they are little children–and maybe we can treat ourselves that way too.
And here we have Iris of the Rainbows, AGAIN. She seems to have become an ever-present reminder that everything changes, that no trouble lasts forever, that brighter days always come. We can be happy, though, to find her upright this time, instead of reversed as she was before. I take this as a sign that some block to our forward progress has been removed. We will still have to work, we will still have to deal with life’s troubles, but clear skies are coming. She really hopes we’ll be ready to take advantage of the fairer weather.
