Maeve (May-ve) - Moon, Goddess
A heart opening, embrace of Goddess and feminine energy. A strong sisterly bond, holding space for others, nurturing and maternal energy. Work with the moon cycles to sync your body and connect with Mother Earth.
Happy New Year! January is a month of one, so we kick off 2020 by looking at the energy of the number one. One energy is like an open door, it’s a time for new beginnings and manifestation. (Cue the white light and angelic music.) What’s interesting is that you’ll notice the card for this month is the same card we had for October, which was also a month of one. Think back to October and what happened for you in that month. What did you birth that month? Did a significant change or clarity take place? You will find the same energy further evolving this month, or similar energy taking center stage. Whatever you opened up to in October, you will find yourself now grounding into a deeper sense of authority and power within it.
And with a moon card we must note that the full moon falls on the 10th, which is…more one energy! So this full moon take advantage by visualizing or engaging in a ritual that celebrates new beginnings. As a New Year's suggestion, I like to keep a digital vision board. I’m not a fan of having a big poster paper plastered on the wall but rather a file folder on the desktop that you can drag and drop images and text into. This way you can easily add and subtract at will, as your desires may change throughout the year. Once in awhile open up your vision board folder and spend some time feeling and visualizing your intentions to support their manifestation. It’s neat to see what desires remain the same, and which ones you might outgrow year to year.
Communication and creation are the words spirit bring through as your focus this month. I’m shown someone sitting in stillness and listening. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, it’s easier said than done. People are more prone to talking than listening. You may find yourself wanting to hit the ground running and charge into 2020 right out of the gates but spirit is asking you to glide forward, not charge. Take the time to sit in stillness with spirit and practice your daily rituals in order to hear your divine guidance and act on it with awareness. If you leap before you listen you risk creating unnecessary setbacks and obstacles for yourself. Choose the path of least resistance as you set the tone for the year.
You’ll see from the card description above that one of the meanings of this card is a heart-opening. And with a heart-opening you are always receiving on a new level. That coupled with the one vibration has you asking yourself: What am I ready for? What do I deserve? Your responsibility is to allow and embrace it. This is why communication is key as you are guided to the action steps that will support your answered prayers. This is the time to ensure you open yourself up to the things you want. For example, if you’re looking to make new friends, you might spend some time looking for events or meet up groups that interest you. If you’re wanting to change jobs you might research and begin reaching out to worthy prospects. As you can see it’s all about starting to open, or to walk through, the open doors that the one energy is providing you. You set your intentions and let spirit guide your action steps to support the fruition of them.
It’s also important to highlight the power of the divine feminine/Goddess energy of this card which lends itself to your communication this month. This isn’t a time to sit back and let things slide but rather to practice self-honoring. If you’re setting the tone for the year then surely you want to do so from a place of self-love and self-esteem. This doesn’t need to be argumentative but assertive. If something negative is said or sent your way simply flip it by presenting the positive, or deflect and redirect. Nip negativity in the bud so you can stay centered in your positive new beginnings. If you're focused on moving forward with a blank page and clean slate you owe it to yourself not to let others pull you backward into the past.
May this 2020 year unfold with ease and grace for you, bringing forward your highest possibilities and greatest outcomes!
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.
