Snilly – Study, Research
Do your research and pay attention to the details. An entrepreneur, self-employment. Study, school and education will be your focus, higher learning.
Two images come up clearly as I pull this month's card. The first is that of someone walking a tightrope while holding an umbrella and trying to steady themselves. Spirit says, "this month you will find your footing." The second is that of a violinist playing gentle music in nature. Spirit says, "take time to exhale and find your centre." This month of two energy will support balance and cooperation. You'll find it easier to connect with a sense of calm and trust that things are pulling themselves together.
This will be a good month to open up to new love, and to new inspiration. Trust your instincts and reach out as you feel guided. If you open a door that isn't right for you, trust Spirit to protect you and close it. You'll feel more in tune with signs you receive this month, as if your antennae are peaked. If you've been doing your work then any self-limiting patterns were shifted last month, and new connections and partnerships are primed to be formed. This applies both personally and professionally.
You'll notice we have our snail friend Snilly on this card reminding us that things are progressing, albeit slowly. Be conscious of catching yourself getting impatient and trying to go too far too fast, or you might risk missing something important. Better to do your research, connect within, and allow things to unfold naturally. This allows you to notice the signs and make the best choices. Snilly is a character that loves the details. Do your best to embrace the inner workings of things. Sometimes understanding the how of a fix is more important than the outcome of the actual fix. The lingering uncertainty will continue to ease up as the year progresses but you are reminded to let go of a focus on time or the need to try to secure a false sense of security. Step back regularly this month and see the forest for the trees.
It's a nurturing month, so the colours blue and green will be beneficial to wear or work with. Ensure that you give yourself a safe space to express your thoughts and process your feelings. Be it journalling, counselling, healing, a quality conversation with a friend, whatever the modality may be—express yourself. Don't bottle things up or you block your energy and limit the space for the new to flow through. Support your friends and loved ones by practicing the art of listening this month. This will allow you to be the best friend and support person you can be. You don't need to fix or offer advice, just don't underestimate the value of being a compassionate confidant and sounding board.
Even though it may not feel like it, many of us are levelling up right now. You may be well aware of the growing pains that are associated with this process; the grief and loss in having to let go of things that have served their purpose; the vulnerability and fear of stepping into the unknown. But try to remind yourself of past times you levelled up and how the outcome was so worth it: the stronger sense of self; the heightened faith; the discovery and celebration in new beginnings. I always find myself using the word adventure with my daughter. Even if it's during quarantine and we're just exploring the house, I say: Let's have an adventure! Things have the meaning we give them. How can you create a sense of adventure this month? These are exhausting times but making a creative effort can actually renew your energy. See life as a colouring book but don't wait for things to return to "normal" before using your crayons again. Just like a child uses the power of their imagination, allow your inner child to find freedom and joy through the same. Lose yourself in your dreams this month. Reconnect with your inner dreamer, visualize, and listen to your hearts longings. Then plant those seeds of intention with your inner child in your energy garden. With Spirit, visit them and nurture them often as they take root and prepare to grow.
In this vibration of two, this month of love, allow your optimist to take centre stage. Lean into love. Focus on the light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how long that tunnel may be.
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.
