Dear Moon Musers,
I pulled a Lefty Oracle Card for the Spring New Moon in Aries and her name is Nambia, pleasantly present. As I read this card energetically without looking at it (a special technique I use for soul readings) I felt the Power of Spring course through me, but it wasn't an overwhelming or strident feeling. Instead, it felt like I was sinking into a bed of wildflowers; all yellows and oranges, reds and purples, filling my soul with beauty and strength and resilience, ephemeral though it was, for Spring flowers disappear so quickly! So I rush instead to breathe in deeply as big storm clouds of blue and sky sail over my head. We need this fullness, this ache, this newness, to ground and center so that we can soar and dive and play in this Season we call Spring. if you're in the Southern Hemisphere this reading can also apply to Fall's arrival, so try it out!
Lefty Oracle of the Month: Nambia, pleasantly present
Mantra: I relax.
Affirmation: I am pleasantly present and focused upon one project, and only one project at a time.
When this card appears in a reading you definitely need a break. Take some time for rest and relaxation, to shed your worries, get pampered and have some fun. This is not a time to crack down and get busy. You'll achieve far more later by taking it easy now. Figure out an easy way to charge your batteries and make time for YOU.
In my own life, I love to simply just sit in nature, breathe in the smells and enjoy the sights; not thinking or doing anything, just being.

Aries Goddess ~ Kali
Kali the destroyer
Wants my heat
To dance destruction
With her feet.
Kali or “Black Mother Time” symbolizes our worst fears. She is one of India’s most powerful and popular Goddesses although terrifying to Western eyes. Through her fascinating dance of death she helps us face and transform our fears as she too is transformed into the Great Mother and Lover.
