“Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.” Anton Chekhov


With the appearance of the New Moon this weekend, I threw a few cards to see what the next few weeks might look like.  After taking this picture, I noticed the reflection of the window pane, clouds and blue sky on the glass desk as a backdrop for this reading.  The blue in all four cards reminded me of divine grace, dreaming, imagination, and hopefulness.

The 9 of Wands reflects a busy couple of weeks for me.  I’m not quite finished yet, but getting very close.  September is a 9 month, and looking at the Numerology, 9 can be a time for reflection, releasing, and planing for the next cycle.

The Moon – XVIII – a dream card often for me; and the underlying meanings.   Watching the crayfish emerge from the water onto land, bringing unconscious thoughts into the conscious.  The Moon card 18, another 9 in Numerology, takes a look at how we might move onward on our  journey amidst some fears and the unknown.

The 8 of Cups – walking away and moving forward on our path.  Leaving things behind can be difficult but there is something that draws us.  When the Seeker/Fool began her journey, she traveled light.  As we live our lives, we accumulate stuff along the way.   Leaving these things or feelings behind may be emotional, but can also give us a feeling of freedom and the ease to move forward.

Judgement XX –  awakening, forgiving, healing, freedom, and a new beginning.  The next to the last card in the Major Arcana in the Tarot deck, the present cycle is almost complete.  What are our Aha moments, those glints of light on broken glass, and how do we transform those into action.
