This Dark Moon ushers in a time of great internal development that pushes us outwards and forward with our life. What ends is a phase of emotionally reaching out and extending ourselves so as to reconnect with the outer world. After reaching out externally this past cycle, now we begin to try and stop external collapses that we foresee as being brought upon by sudden and fast change. This trial makes us face the collapse of our inner self as we deal with internal conflicts of progression and change, brought on by the panic of trying to stop change. The lesson is regarding building physical security and wealth. We can prepare for this by toning down on our passionate expression of our creative love and allowing the passion to burn inside of us and grow the magnetic power of our inner self. We allow the the process by being outgoing, meeting new people and reaching out with what we have to offer. This is more formal and different from reaching out with passion and love, as we work to build our internal strength and fire of creativity.
What grounds us is staying hopeful when we aren’t sure about what the mixed signals that the external world is sending to us. What crowns us is engaging in the exchange of the tangible; which in formal terms are considered goods & services, but in personal terms, it can be as simple as spending time with someone to help them out with a task or giving them space to finalize and release what was within them (like the hidden words and thoughts that pervade our minds and weigh us down with worry), which in turn will bring back a return from the Universe, as mysterious and random as what we gave. Push the ego to the side and know that when we are there for someone, some cause, some element of nature, the Universe bears witness and returns the help.
A look into the background of shows that currently, our inner guidance has led us to reach outward and be more engaged in our environment. The immediate challenges involve that which we keep to ourselves, and how much we can really manage to secretly achieve without communicating our intention to others. An awareness of what is best to keep and what is best to express will test our discernment of self. The best course of action involves staying optimistic despite of the odds, winning internally against the pressure of game of worry. In the distant past we pressed onwards despite overbearing pressure and worries regarding our situation, which then brought us to a time of self-doubt which made us turn inward to nurture ourselves and recover our self-confidence. So now we look to the future and see rapid changes happening as our internal growth expands the possibilities in our external world. This brings an urge to stop the rapid change in order to prevent a collapse, which brings inner conflict and egoic collapses. We are currently in open communication with a close friend or partner as we work in an environment that promotes development of new skills and studies. We fear losing control as we try not to be overbearing. The final outcome shows that we are working on developing tangible internal goals for ourselves as the outer world may not show what we want for now. However, in accordance with previous cards, stay hopeful and keep moving forward with internal optimism and external realism.
One thing to carry with us is knowing that even if we are unable to see the truth of things surrounding us in the external world, we can turn inward and work with the assuredness of our inner truth of being as we move forward. With inner hope and optimism that we know our goal and have it in sight.
