Well, Dang, RiAN! I couldn't wait to finish my own reading/meditation, etc., so I could hop on here to read your new deck selection! I want to say I am surprised, but I am not; I am more pleasantly pleased at the affirmation of the card.
Firstly, the Snake is one of my spirit animals, and I have a stone with its image on my desk at all times ( I'm certain you've seen it in some of my images ). It's a black snake carved on white stone to symbolize the purity of the spirit ( contrary to Christian belief it is evil ;but, that's a different story for another time ( and possibly wine )). I was presented this stone at the Cherokee reservation in the NC mountains, so it's very special to me.
Secondly, I typically don't share my personal pulls here; however, today I feel led to share to demonstrate the synchronicity of the cards, regardless of the deck, regardless of the reader, regardless of the location. In this instance, Norway and the US. And do not think, Dear Reader, that these messages are limited to me; they most certainly are not.
The Universe works for the greater good of all; therefore, what is applicable to you is such, and truth. The Shaman's Dream: No. 51 STARS IN THE SKY: Limitless Possibility/embracing opportunity
We can already note the synchronicity of this card with RiAN's pull. Look at the spirit figure sitting on the arch of the bridge. Eventually, the person is going to have to choose which way to walk, as they cannot survive in this liminal space indefinitely. Note the lines of energy connecting the spirit self with the sky in the form of stardust, reminding us that we are made of the same limitless possibilities as the stars we gaze upon.
We could spend a lifetime gazing up into the beauty of expanse shimmering with various pulses of light from stars and planets. However, we all know too well that daylight will come, the stars will disappear for a time, and we must tend to our own physical needs. We must choose what to wear, what to eat, what action to take to manifest our dreams, and so forth, if we are to survive.
While the night provides us a glimpse of endless possibilities which mirror our own here on earth; it can be overwhelming trying to decide which star to choose out of so many. But, now is the time to choose the brightest star and focus on the now. Be present in that moment before gathering your most cherished dreams, and make small movements toward calling that glittering potential into reality!
How do we do that? Choice. Which brings me to Moonology: Queen of the Moon: No. 8 Waxing Crescent 6: THE PATH
Now look at the figure preparing to manifest her dreams by climbing that ladder of possibility one step at a time. Notice that the Moon phase even coincides with the current phase of the Moon, which just moved into Second Quarter Waxing Crescent today in the sign of Leo ( transitioning to Virgo @ 4:59 PM ).
This burgeoning Moon denotes the perfect time to manifest the first steps of your chosen path. The way is open for us; it's even illuminated! It's time to take action - which means it's time to be courageous, and the Moon in Leo provides the courage you need to decide the course that we're dreaming.
We're approaching the end of the tunnel and the path is not only visible, but it is also inviting us forward. So, instead of standing there in doubt and uncertainty, it's time to take a step, even if that step is only picking the brightest star in your night sky before the sun rises to illuminate opportunity!
So thank you, RiAN, for the affirmation of my own reading this morning. I actually made a decision yesterday after a reading; however, the thief of doubt always visits afterward. This mornings reading, coupled with yours, is a clear indication for me ( and others ) to move forward with my own decision!
Much love to you and DU for a beautiful day! xo
