Maury – Creativity, Magic
Inspiration and creativity are at a peak, so take advantage. You are being fully supported in an endeavour, so work your natural magic now. Experiment and try new ways of doing things.
It's time to give up the ghost. This was the first thing I heard as I pulled this month's card. One aspect of what you're asked to give up right now is excuses. If you've been feeling remiss or complacent, you may get knocked off-kilter as a reality check. Fall equinox on September 22nd is always a great time to revisit and reimplement rituals. Just as we see Nature's autumn release, it's time for you to take fearless self-inventory and let go where necessary. How can the new enter your life if you don't make space for it?
As I pulled this card I was also shown a specific animal messenger for this month: a goose. You might say you are asked to give up the ghost to get the goose. Goose shows up to support healing changes and clarity, particularly in the areas of work and family. This animal messenger will help your navigation skills as you find your direction. You are either connecting with a new purpose, or inspiring a current one. Goose will also encourage getting you goal-oriented and focused. This month you will be feeling extra productive and desiring tangible results. You will find yourself easily digging into any administrative tasks, as well as coming up with clever and creative solutions to any lingering problems. The end of this month Spirit shows you dusting off your hands in self-satisfaction. If there's an area of your life that's stalled or been calling for healing, this month gives you a swift kick in the rear (or let's stick with the theme and say rather, a loud goose honk in the ear!). You are reminded that nothing changes unless you do, and that everything changes once you do. Are you sitting idly waiting for another sign? Waiting for the perfect time? Waiting for more motivation? Because if so, you might be waiting a long time. Simply commit and get going in order to have the road rise up to meet you. Awareness coupled with action will be your magic recipe this month.
One of the things my dad always taught me that has never failed me (and I think is more important than ever in these social-media-driven times) is that it's always going to be the work itself that matters most. If you are good at what you do — and even better, if you do something you love — the money will take care of itself. There is so much emphasis these days on appearance, on having the best website, the highest SEO ranking, labelling oneself as a best-selling author, chasing awards and playing around with titles, this or that — you get the idea. I'm not saying these things aren't important, and at times necessary, but I am saying I have seen more and more people becoming hyper-focused on everything but the actual work. Remember that you are responsible for 'why' you do something. If you bring a pure intention to whatever you do, Spirit will take care of the 'who, what, when, and how.' As Spirit shares: 'It's not the packaging but the message that matters.'
Communication will be at the forefront this month and you'll want to be aware of not reacting but responding. Give yourself time to choose your words wisely and do your best to communicate with loving assertiveness. That being said, another aspect of giving up the ghost this month is not faking it. If you are putting on airs, you might just find yourself in situations that take the air out of you. Transparency will be heightened this month. Spirit concludes with an image of a tree, and you may have felt like the leaf floating on the end of a branch, but this month allows for you to return to being the trunk: strong with deeply planted roots. Happy fall equinox!
On the first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards, which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month. I also share any energy themes as I feel guided.
