What message does the waning moon have for us? Oracle Card: Artemis | Guardian
The wild energy of the waning moon vibes so well with Artemis, the Goddess that is lending us her moxy this week. This is the sunset phase of the lunar cycle, full of amazing bursts and blended colours, a phase where our internal weather systems can seem unpredictable and we feel all the feels, full spectrum emotions. This can all feel uncomfortable and ungrounding, especially when it happens collectively monthly as we experience the effects of the waning moon. Artemis represents what our society represses, a wild woman who befriends animals and communes with Nature as she pleases. She carries a bow and arrow not as a weapon but as a way to focus and marry her energy with intention. Lady Magic.
Use Warrior 1, Warrior 2 and Warrior 3 yoga poses this week to create stability and to invoke Artemis as you visualize your arms as the bow, your breath as your arrow, and your gazing point as your goal. Use your yoga mat and your body to tap in to this focused, Motherly, protective energy, allowing the angsty feels of the waning moon to be transformed through movement.
You are here on a sacred mission, and calling or Artemis protects you, creating an invisible shield of Motherly Love that expands through space and time. She feels like a female version of Archangel Michael mixed with Wonder Woman, I’m really having fun connecting with her vibe as I type.
She asks where are you pointing your arrows? What have you been focused on? Where have you been investing your time? What activities make you feel wild, light you up and make you laugh?
Allow yourself to play with Artemis, knowing that she is one of your Guardian Angels. Doreen Virtue’s guidebook says “[y]our prayers have activated the flawless protection of Heaven. So, ease your mind of all cares and concerns, and concentrate instead upon your holy mission.” Copy that.
