It’s New Year’s Day! I welcome the abundant blessings and opportunities available in 2013!
It is up to me to manifest the reality of my focus and intentions in 2013. The best way I know how to bring creativity into the world is through my sacred livelihood, Nia. It is the dance of life for me — and the powerful agent of death — the letting go of all that does not serve my unique spirit.
In honor of stepping in to a new cycle, I drew from the Mythical Goddess tarot deck four cards that surround my focus and intentions for 2013.
“Crow Woman is the Guardian of Sacred Law, wielding true justice and the highest principles of right and wrong. Crow Woman shape-shifts and is unattached to the affairs of this world and the drama of human experience. Crow Woman asks that you honor your boundaries. Shift your life to be in synch with your own sacred nature. Be true to yourself.”
- I intrepret that as: The world’s ways are not my ways — true justice and the highest principles of right and wrong have nothing to do with man’s laws and justice system. It has everything to do with integrity and living to my highest vision in any moment.
Remaining unattached to the filth, degradation and mockery that imbues this world on a daily basis is paramount for health and healing.
- True identity is key. For those of you who know me, I think you would agree that this is how I live my life…I couldn’t have drawn a more perfect card! Except that I drew 3 more perfect cards!!
Astara, Ace of Wind; Four of Earth (the goat mandala); and Creativity, Mother of Wind.
Astara, The Ace of Wind has to do with Realization, razor sharp mental clarity, conscious understanding. Realization is the first step — conscious awareness. Nia is the dance of conscious awareness and goes beyond just mental clarity — physical and emotional clarity are also a part of my process of Realization.
The Four of Earth portrays the Goat Mandala as a powerful shield of unity and strength that creates clear boundaries. My sun sign is Capricorn and my 13 Moon calendar signature is White Planetary Mirror — both have to do with being grounded AND living with spiritual intent. I am being invited to keep safe and sacred my boundaries and the space around me. Conscious choices create safe boundaries and sacred space. Not all of my choices have created a safe and sacred space for me. One of my intentions is to have less of those occurrences in 2013!
Creativity, Mother of Wind embodies the abundant, fertile creativity of the mind. Her flow of ideas come into the Earth as beautiful manifestations of heavenly creations. She brings inspiration and new realities to come. Nia allows for creative expression that goes far beyond what I dance in the classroom. I am lifted up to heights unknown when I am in that place of creativity — I am the dance of life.
So it would appear I have quite a year ahead of me — having the Guardian of Sacred Law as my guide, I have no doubt it will be an exciting, adventurous journey.
A big thanks to beautiful Mythical Goddess tarot deck!
