“And the time keeps going on by
And I wonder what is to become of me
And I’m unsure, I can’t see my way
And he says, ‘Lady, you don’t need to see’ “
-Stevie Nicks, “Lady”

The new moon in Pisces ushers in a magic dreamscape.

With Neptune and Venus both in the mix, our feelings are positive and romantic, perhaps even overly idealistic or utopian in nature.

Today’s Rock Star Oracle is Stevie Nicks / Faith “Try Making Magic”

One message here, with the Ten of Cups, is to take a leap of faith when it comes to your emotional fulfillment.

You are more capable and resilient than you think. Not everything has to be, or can be, reduced to logic and reason. Sometimes you just have to trust yourself to go forward in confidence. You won’t be perfect, but that’s a good thing. Your emotions are to be experienced, not controlled.

Another message here is to let yourself enjoy life! You can fight for social justice and still appreciate your own abundance. Satisfaction with yourself is actually an anti-capitalist stance. If you are content, capitalism cannot sell you a solution to your problems. You do not have to suffer in order to lift others out of suffering.

Isn’t the ultimate goal of our spiritual work to create paradise on earth and end human suffering? Let it begin with us. Today’s cards suggest that a leap of faith could be just the magic you need to generate joy.

Today’s cards represent positive emotional energy, self-confidence, fulfillment, and satisfaction.

Relationships or partnerships are likely to play a role in this goodwill. Carnelian gemstone encourages us to stand tall in our convictions and to be confident in our ideas and aspirations.

Through being honest with ourselves, facing the skeletons in our own closet, and engaging in ongoing emotional healing work we may come to more fully understand what kind of partner we are or at least strive to be. Then we understand what kind of partner we need.

Confidence is attractive in a way desperation or self-deprecation is not. You will draw those people to you who appreciate your authentic self.

If you enter partnerships or relationships compromising your needs or values, you will be stuck in that false role for the duration of the relationship, hesitant to show your true self for fear of rejection. In my experience, this is a fast track to depression and anxiety. I have spent a lot of years trying to be what people wanted or expected me to be, especially at work or in any cooperative endeavor, and it only leads to low self-esteem, frustration, and resentment.

True satisfaction on a soul level can only come from authentic partipation in life. Making yourself smaller (or less emotional, or less witty, or less sexy, or more fancy, or more serious, etc.) to suit other people’s needs, even if it earns short term praise and validation, will only weaken your confidence and emotional fulfillment in the long run.
