KEYWORD FOR THIS LUNAR CYCLE:

WHAT IS THE KEY MESSAGE FOR THIS LUNAR CYCLE?
30. Path Awareness – If I sincerely ask, I am always guided back to the right path for me and to my central purpose.
A lot of times we feel like we need to act in a certain way, to achieve certain things when we reach a certain age, or that we need to be constantly on top of things, be efficient and productive, so then we are deemed acceptable by society’s standards. And perhaps then, we can finally accept who we are.
But the path of love does not require us to be perfect and flawless, fearless, energetic or blissful all the time.
In fact, a lot of days we feel like we are living in darkness, or falling down in a rabbit hole with nowhere to land. Some days we just feel like crap. And that is also part of the path.
This lunar cycle we are being called to reflect on our choices and actions. Do they help to put us on the path of love and service, or are they coming from a place of fear and doubt?
I don’t mean to avoid facing any negative emotions or thoughts. In fact, by reflecting on our own agenda and actions, and calling upon our spiritual support team for help, this act itself will cast a light on our shadow so then we can face our fears, with as much help as we can get.
We all experience trauma in our lives, whether small or big ones. When the time is right, we can no longer bury the trauma, anger, resentment, grief, grudge, bitterness, jealousy with the busyness of our daily lives.
I believe that the path of love is also the path of healing, a way for us to return to wholeness. If you feel triggered by anyone or any situation, know that it is your internal cry for help.
And know this – you are not alone on this journey. When you are willing to ask the Universe for help and surrender all control on how the outcome should be, support will come. Perhaps not the way you expect it to be, but trust that everything happens for our soul to grow and evolve and always for our highest good.
This lunar cycle also feels like a reflective time. It will be ideal to spend some time alone, even just 10 minutes a day. Take your gaze inward and pay undivided attention to what’s happening in your inner world.
As your Soul speaks to you through your intuition, doubts may creep up. When this happens, come back to your intention. Is it coming from a place of love, or a place of fear? Do I feel excited even though I don’t know how I can do it, or do I feel like it is something I “should” do and I have to make a lot of effort just to convince myself to do it (or not do it)?
When the global pandemic hit three years ago, that was when I discovered Bhakti Yoga and it changed my life. There were so many dark moments in my life since then, but my spiritual practice was my savior. The firefly in the darkness. All I needed to do was to show up to my practice, every single day.
Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of devotion, and to me, it is the path of love. It is a path that helps me strengthen my relationship with the Divine, to deepen my faith in the Universe particularly whenever I am going through a difficult time, and to experience Divine love and grace even when I am far from perfect. And though Bhakti Yoga is the path that I resonate with, everyone’s path of love may look different.
Show up consistently to your daily practice and your faith, and it does not have to look like anyone else’s. Your spiritual practice is yours and yours alone, not for everyone else to agree with or to question.
Ask for help and pray for guidance in the way you are comfortable with. This is the time to strengthen your faith and deepen your spiritual practice. If you don’t have a spiritual practice, don’t worry. Then this is a time to explore what spirituality means to you.
To me, spirituality is how we connect with ourselves and to the bigger presence that is all around us. You can call this bigger presence Creator, God, Goddess, Divine, Source, Universe, the Great Spirit, Mother Earth, or any other terms you resonate with. To me, they all refer to the same thing – Love.
For this lunar cycle, let us continue to deepen our relationship with our Soul, the Universe, and with Love.

I recognize that my interpretation of the cards is largely based on reflections of my personal life experience and you may or may not resonate with what I share. I find that sometimes by sharing what’s going on in my life, others may find that they are going through something similar in their lives. It’s important to know that you are not going through this journey of life alone.
I highly encourage you to look at the cards as well and feel into the messages and energies of the cards yourself.
Read the messages and notice what sensations come up. Do you feel light or tense? Look at the images of the cards, and notice what draws your gaze. What thoughts and feelings arise? Do you like or dislike the card, or certain elements in the image of the card? Why is that and what does it remind you of?
Your intuition is your inner compass. My intuitive soul card reading only serves as a reference point, an invitation for you to reflect and ponder and to work your magic. I don’t claim to predict the future, nor can I do that. Take what you resonate and leave what you don’t.
Card reading is a great intuitive tool for us to find some clarity and guidance in our own life, but remember ultimately you are the one who get to decide and live the life you want.
Enjoy reading and feel free to let me know your thoughts, questions and sharing by email.
