New Moon Draw

©Grimassi, Taylor & Mueller
It being a New Moon at the start of the New Year, on 1/11, I decided a draw and meditation was definitely in order.  I pulled a single card from my mixed deck of the Well Worn Path (Llewellyn, 2005) and the Hidden Path (Llewellyn, 2007), and got the Sacred Sight/Site card from the latter.

This tells me that this month, and this year, I would do well to focus on connecting with the sacred, and perhaps also with developing my visualisation practice.  The image shows a "hag stone" - a rock in which time has carved a hole, and through which we look at a stone circle and sacred tree.  Something there, then, about experience helping us to see the sacred more clearly.  Also, a suggestion that the sacred is where my focus should be.

I have plans, it's true, for a spiritual project that needs some research.  I hope some of that will be appropriate for posting here, too :)  With the excitement and hard work of other aspects of my life in full swing, this is a good reminder that the sacred is fundamental to me, and to take time to honour that amongst all the other chaos.


  1. great post! I have been trying to concentrate on the sacred as well. my spirituality suffered in 2012. I am going to concentrate on the sacred with you!

    1. Lovely, Shelly! I think it can be hard to focus on spirituality when there's the whole consumerist Christmas thing going on. So, now's a good time to get back on track :)

  2. This is so cool. This card feels like 'a dream within a dream'...I love the image. Great image to meditate upon.

    Thanks for the mindfulness reminder. Feeling emotionally frazzled yesterday and today. Perhaps I should draw a single meditation card.

    Much Love,

    1. Hi MM,

      Sorry I didn't see this til now - haven't been online much, either. Hope you're feeling less frazzled, dearheart.
