Happy Monday and Happy Pisces Full Moon! Yesterday I shared some divination magic for this awesome full moon. I love the Pisces full moon because even though it can be a bit of a highly emotional and sensitive time, a smart spiritual and mystical babe knows how to use that to her advantage! And divination is one of the best ways to do that. So if you haven’t seen yesterday’s post pop over and have a look.
For this week’s Messages From Spirit I’m using The Oracle of Shapeshifters by Lucy Cavendish and Jasmine Becket-Griffith. I love their decks together. Lucy’s card interpretations and messages and beautiful and inspiring and Jasmine’s artwork is always adorable with a touch of something slightly unsettling. Perfect combination for an oracle deck!
Mind – Little Brother, Little Sister
Body – A Beautiful Little Worm
Spirit – Beauty and The Beast
Little Brother, Little Sister shows us that this week you may find that children end up playing a big role. Whether their your own little ones, nieces, nephews, little brothers or sisters, or even the children of friends, you may find that to some degree you are put in a position of being responsible for the care of a young one.
Most likely this isn’t going to come with the usual stuff that it does if this is something common for you. This is going to be a week with some challenges while caring for the little ones in your life. Maybe the start of the school year isn’t going so great or you find that you have a sick little one to care for. You’re going to find yourself tested and pushed a bit with those younger than you in your life this week .
The message here is to do your best and make the best of any situation, no matter how challenging. You will grow as an elder in the process but you’ll also find that you’ll reconnect with your own inner child in the process. Put yourself back in their shoes when you find yourself getting angry or frustrated. What was it like for you to have to deal with starting a new school or trying to bust out and become your own person when you were younger?
When it comes to actions and what to do, A Beautiful Little Worm suggests that you slow down and not try to do 100 things at once. If you find that you have to let younger family or friends take priority this week, then let them take priority. It’s OK to put some other things off and push back a meeting or dinner date if you have to. It’s all about priorities and truly family, either of birth of choice, should come first – especially when they are doing with challenges and need help.
Another reason this comes up is that if you try to be Super You this week you could find it doesn’t sit well with your body. Be super careful not to push it because you may just run yourself down and get sick. It’s also important that if you are caring for a little one that’s sick themselves that you take time to care for yourself so you don’t get sick too.
You don’t have to do everything for this person in your care, especially if it’s going to be at your own detriment.
Lastly the lesson is shown in Beauty and The Beast. When it’s all said and done, you’ll need a little distance between you two. That might seem a little strange, but think about it this way – you don’t want to let someone else, especially a child, become too dependent on you. On the other side you don’t want to become so attached that you need to hover over everything they do. This is especially true if you’re dealing with a child that’s going through difficulties with friends or school. Remember that sometimes we have to fall and stumble to learn. It might not be easy for you to watch them go through that, but it’s part of learning to live in the world and be their own person.
The big lesson for the week is to be responsible and lend the care that is needed but don’t over do it and know when it’s time to step back. Don’t be controlling…and don’t allow yourself to be controlled. And you know kids have a way of doing that. 🙂
