Drink the moonshine bright
empty the cup to refill
Full on the shine light
Good morning… Nine days rolls around fast doesn’t it? That’s why it’s nice to use the Tarot cards to deepen the days meaning or the invitation to a possible meaning.
The Hermit doesn’t need to infer a person hiding in a cave or remaining hidden from others for extensive periods of time. Which isn’t to say Hermit ‘energy’ doesn’t need time to ponder and recluse; to gather energy in quietude and meditation so that there is more energy to have and more light to shine., more wisdom to gather and share. There isn’t necessarily a time limit on the need for silence and gathering. And… once this time of quietude finds completion, Hermit energy is ready to come out of the silent, quiet space. It is this return to social interaction that the give back and sharing of wisdom can occur.
‘9’, is the number for bringing-it-all-together: tying up lose ends, completing that project, that plan, that thought, so you can move on. Being stuck in ‘9’ energy can keep things from coming to completion or missing out on an opportunity that need more action and less pondering.
This day or if it’s your birthday is a time to take some quiet time and really gather your light, your unfinished business, your need for closure, whatever has been lingering in the undone zone that pokes at you to finish up. Maybe you’ve been plowing through life and are drained, depleted, no time for yourself and your creative desires and dreams. This is day to give a little bit to tidying up what has been bugging you and you feel frustrated with. It might be a time to let go of that piece of life you keep putting off and putting off and now it’s just a thorn in your side, undone, going no where.
With the Moon as your ally, take a look in those shadows of yours and drag that unfinished business into the light.
As you ponder these thoughts and questions, please take a moment to sit quietly and breathe. Let your breath guide you into a quiet place for the questions to have a moment to brew and shimmer. Invite your wisdom to be your guide. And remember, if overwhelm sets in, take a very little step. You have as much time as you need.
QUESTIONS TO PONDER
What wisdom have you gathered that you can honor and share?
What is your ‘light’ and how do you gather your Light and share it?
Can you take some time to just be calm and quiet with no doing?
What does it mean for you to ‘lighten up’?
Do you have project or two or three that you’d like to finish and what does that mean for you?
Can you take some down time?
What needs ‘pulling together’?
Can you honor your own needs and say no to something when you need time alone?
Who needs you to say ‘no, not now’?
Think of what the Hermit means to you and how do you feel about that expression within yourself?
What inner wisdom is urging you to pay attention to it and listen?
