Card: XI The Hermit – from the Circle of Life Tarot by Maria Distefano.
“In order to overcome overcome loneliness, you must have experienced it first. To recognize the light, you must first know the dark.”
Message from The Faeries: There is a certain heavy feeling to the beginning of this week. There are a few issues that may have tagged along with you from 2015, but don’t stress or worry about it. This too shall pass. Things are working themselves out, they just need a bit of extra time. Be patient with yourself and others this week.
Things might feel slow as well, this week. Just try to relax and slow yourself down to match the pace of the week. Fighting it and trying to force things to happen will only make you feel worse. If you feel yourself become irritable, please do yourself and everyone around you a favour, and put yourself in the time-out corner. The heaviness of this week will make everything much less bearable for everyone.
We strongly suggest that, for the beginning of this week, you spend some quality time with yourself. If you are still dealing with issues from 2015, get them done and over with so that you can properly move into 2016. Spend the time working through all your shadow stuff that arises this week.
Rest assured that although the week starts off heavy, it will lighten up by the end of the week. This will be especially true if you do the hard work at the beginning of the week.
The Hermit’s staff, in the image from this card, is framing the waning moon. It’s during the waning period of this week that things may be difficult. When the New Moon hits later that week, that’s when things will turn around, so be sure to take care of that inner-work so that your manifestation energies will be on point with the lunar cycle changes.
We wish for you all to have the courage and strength to do the important work this week. We know that you all can do it.
We love you.
