Usually when I get a new deck I will sit down and look through all cards and pull out those that immediately attracts me or repulses me. With the Oracle of Initiation I really like most cards but 3 or 4 jumped out at me and grabbed my attention (in a good way) and this was one of them. It is number 53 – Applying. It’s just such a happy card and I want to be that woman.
On Facebook people post these sentimental quotes on top of images of sunsets or kitten and usually I find them stupid. But last night someone posted one I really liked (posted down below) The world I lived in for some time now has been a bitter one and it has made me a bitter and angry person, filled with resentment and being all butt-hurt over perceived wrongs.
Lakshmi is the Goddess for this card. This is a bit from the texts in the book:
‘When Lakshmi appears in your cards, look for the dazzling enchantments that draw you to applying your greatest joys as an offering to the collective.’
So this weekend I am thinking of how and where I find my joy and how I could express it more, share joy instead of anger and resentment. Time to step away from hurt doesn’t mean to forgive, I don’t think I have it in me, but I can side-step away from the situation and simply chose not to have that person and those expectations in my life any more.
