This week’s card, Impatience (Electric Moon) from Tori Hartman’s Chakra Wisdom Oracle cards is so interesting because a lot of folks seem to be experiencing a huge influx of “I want to do it….and do it all… right now!” energy that came in with the New Year. There’s lots of things pending and lots of sources of both positive and seemingly negative anxiety sources and we want to barrel through it all at once and get it done. Thankfully, this isn’t a feeling I get very often (I’m usually more on the methodical-tree-sloth-molasses end of the energy spectrum) but boy have I been zapped with it this week.
Each image in this deck has an associated spiritual fable by Tori Hartman and her spiritual guides and in one, our protagonist Etan can’t wait for the dawn so he decides to figure out a way to light up the night sky even though the Sky God assures him that the dawn will come, and the sun will come back up…. and he does it with a used (electric) moon. Unfortunately, the electric moon doesn’t work out that great, and like the old rabbit-ear TV’s of the 70s, it just wouldn’t stay lit unless he is holding the cord. Even though the Sky God tells him to let go, let go of that cord, that the dawn will come….
*spoiler alert*** does the sun come up and does dawn arrive? Yes it does!
It’s tempting to want to leap into action or to take shortcuts (or seeming shortcuts) to make something we want come sooner or to make it all seem to be under our control, but this simply isn’t always possible. This week, thinking and making decisions from a mental or emotional landscape of “I don’t have enough, I don’t have it when I want it” won’t go very well. Hasty decisions, rush jobs, or MacGyvering electric moons aren’t going to light the way any faster. It’s time to trust the dawn, let go of the cord, and slow down.
This is a good week to work in service of the Mercury Retrograde (“re-think, re-organise, re-view”) fairies and to remember that the dawn is a wonderful, awesome, revealing and successful time coming for you!
About this deck: Tori Hartman’s Chakra Wisdom Oracle is illustrated by Gretchen Raisch-Baskin and it’s a fabulous re-tooling of the Colour Wisdom oracle. We’re back to weekly cards – and some new features and changes will be happening on the page in coming weeks. I’ll be reintroducing deck reviews and book reviews and changing some features around as I plan to change the blog and main site too. (astronomy page and other side pages will be back in a new form)
