Glinda's Guidance for the week of 9/21/2015 - Stay Awake in the Poppies, Expect Hidden Agendas
Might I also suggest that you make a special effort to create a clear channel to connect with your guides and your intuition - whether through special attention to opening your third eye and crown chakras or by asking the Divine to help you clear the debris in your communication channels with spirit - this week is a great week to establish a new "clear the channel" ritual.
Note: Our divine conversation was opened with the incomparable Deck of the Bastard from the astounding Tarot by Seven! Reading pictured above.
The energy of the week: (The Moon) A week of the unknown and feelings of uncertainty about our direction and future has returned to us - a cycle not unfamiliar to us. And it comes part and parcel with or perhaps to add insult to injury to, Mercury Retrograde. Mercury retro is a phenomena which not all folks experience the same way but which can affect some of us by leaving us feeling quite out of sorts when it comes to the communication department. So this week we have a bit of communication breakdown during a time of uncertainty and doubt.
Be aware that it may seem as if every choice you have in front of you is an obstacle. It's as if you are between a rock and a hard place with every option. (The Lovers)
The lion says: (2 of Pentacles Reversed) this week have the courage to allow yourself to simply feel out of sorts. Heck... drop a few balls if you have too many in the air. There is no shame in letting a few things go until the dust can settle a bit and you have more clarity! This is a friendly reminder to you to have the courage to keep failing forward! Take action despite your uncertainty - it may feel as if your resources are a little out of balance but, a step forward even in the wrong way, is STILL the RIGHT direction!
The scarecrow says: (4 of Swords) this week you may think you need a break from all the chaos - a well deserved rest. But, this is nothing more than Munchkinland trying to draw you back in to the hypnotic rhythm. You are nearing the Emerald City now and may be approaching the poppies. Now is the time to stay awake and alert as opportunities will present themselves amidst the chaos.
The tin man says: (9 of Cups) put all of your loving energy into making that wish this week! Believe in yourself with every ounce of your being, you have much to be proud of and it's okay to flaunt it just a little bit this week. Take stock of all of your past successes, accept compliments and niceties with grace and appreciation! Then approach this week of uncertainties with the assurance and comfort of past successes under your belt; even as you allow a few of your new moving parts to fall seemingly out of place as the lion has advised.
Toto's advice for you: (High Priestess Reversed) Ahh Toto - ever the faithful friend, here to alert us of danger up ahead. Heed his warnings and you can avert the disasters and walk more freely along your path. This week he wants to be VERY clear with you to watch out for hidden agendas! Mercury retrograde can be very murky when it comes to communication and connections so, in alignment with what the scarecrow advises this week - stay awake and alert in the poppies and should you met a Wizard this week be fully prepared to pull back the curtain! Do not take his words at face value!
This is a week of walking through the dark forest. This will not be a week where watching the skies for flying monkeys is enough... this is a week that will be dominated by the Wizards with very slick hidden agendas. So please do take time to check in with your authentic friends and keep the channels of communication clear and open with your guides and your inner being.
If you are once again thinking it's time to take just a little nap to avoid the chaos... SNAP OUT OF IT. Treat yourself to a grande cup of spiritual coffee! Get inspired, get focused and keep moving forward one step at a time!
Love you and thinking of you on your journey.
