This morning, I once again chanted half a mala of Om Mani Padme Hum, and a full mala to Yemaya. I'm thinking of changing my altar round a bit again, as I've taken Tara off, but with my son's operation coming up in nine days time, it feels like I should have her there, as his matron Goddess. Will have to think on this a bit more...
I also asked the cards for a spiritual message for the day. Shown here from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004), I drew Mountain, House, Birds, Spirit Guides.
I read this as saying that a conversation will be required to resolve blockages in the home, and that I should draw on external wisdom to help me in my phrasing and approach. This makes me think of a tricky situation I have right now with one of my son's carers. She's had some bad news from home, and needs to take time off. However, I can't be left in uncertainty about when she's coming back, no matter how much I understand her need to be with her family. At the moment, she's making no firm commitment to come back any time this year! And that's a lot of uncertainty.
So, I think I need to talk with her, both to express my support, but also to be clear about our position. Maybe I can get some help from spirit, or from my mother: both would fit my conception of spirit guides as wise counsellors :D
