Yesterday, not one but three people reminded me that it was a New Moon, on 11/1 (European date style, but it still works), and particularly propitious for making big wishes and sowing the seeds for this year, intention-wise. How could I ignore that big a slap on the head?! ;)
So, in the early hours, a ways before dawn, I did a reading and a
meditation on the seeds I am sowing for this year. As quite a few of
those seeds are Lenormand-related, I decided I'd better use a Lenormand
deck. And as it was a reading with a spiritual aspect, I chose the Mystical Lenormand (AGM, 2006).
This deck is a somewhat non-traditional Lenormand, with a heap of additional symbolism, intended for more intuitive readings. Nevertheless, I have started from regular meanings and just used the intuitive elements for additional details.
What will help me sow the seeds for this coming year? Fox
I need to use my skills and street smarts, and to be entrepreneurial and willing to work outside the box. However, I must also be sure to take care of myself and my basic needs: all work and no sleep makes Chloë a tired, useless woman :D
How can I best help those seeds to grow and flourish? Tower
Institutions and corporations will be important in helping my plans to flourish. Here I see U.S. Games, of course, but also something else that I hope to talk about next month... There is also the suggestion of doing my research well, and of protecting these plants from attack, creating a safe space for them to develop. I think that's mainly about keeping clear boundaries on my part, and being willing to stand up for what I believe in.
What harvest will I reap from this? Clouds
Okay, so it'll be a mixed bunch: some good, some bad. And with a dose of uncertainty thrown in, to boot! That doesn't really surprise me. For instance, I'm unlikely to make money on the U.S. Games deal for at least a couple of years, if not longer. Still, it seemed worth it to me for the improved distribution and reduced hassle.
Nothing is likely to be totally plain sailing, but it will be exciting. There will be at least a few spots of colour in all of that, and a sweet fruit or two. I can live with that :)
