Today’s draw tells us to guard that which is most precious to us. Today in the United States it’s a day of mercantile madness that comes less than a day after we profess gratitude for what we already have. Without getting too political in this space, let me just say that before we criticize those who wait in line for shopping on this day, consider that many of those who do are poor people who can’t afford the items they’re shopping for otherwise. Let’s not criticize the people but the corporations that are taking advantage of them and their own workers — remember who the real enemy is. So guard your valuables if you’re shopping today, and continue that flow of gratitude for what you already have as you search to bring in more (if you need to).
Ok, that’s that. Back to the reading: Tap into your own magic today (of course you have it; we all do). Watch out for predators and tricksters, and ALWAYS read the fine print. Guard your precious light against that which drains it, and if you are surrounded by energies that sap you, get away from them for a little while. If you can’t get away, put up some energetic shields to block them. These family weekends can be feeding grounds for energetic vampires, so be careful. Watch. Guard that which is most precious.
Today’s draw is about where we are now and where we’re going. We are facing a big job of getting rid of a LOT of crap. There is an entire way of being that’s currently dying (or is already dead), and we can either keep dragging that carcass around or bury it and move on. It’s time to take the lessons from it, to see where the goodness is and to bring that with us while letting the rest go. We are moving into a deeply creative period and we can’t go there or be there fully while constantly maneuvering around acres of our previous crap. Get rid of it. Clear out your house. Empty your closets of things you don’t wear. Donate stuff to charity, sell what you can, and throw away the rest. There is so much work to be done, and your stubbornness is really getting in the way (I’m speaking to myself as well here, so this isn’t just me being all bossy at you). We’re being fools, hiding the truth from ourselves, or rather, hiding ourselves from the truth. It needs to stop. Go within. Quiet down. Put down the masks and distractions and face what you are too afraid to face.
