Oracle of the Mermaids (Blue Angel, 2013) for something uplifting. Turns out, this deck isn't just all happiness and light like a Doreen Virtue deck. Nor does it seem to want to give me any straight answers. Not just that, but my card for the day rather gave me the creeps! Titled 'The Unseen', this mermaid looks as though she has evil intent, peering out of her cave, hiding something golden under her tail, and crawling across a skull and other bones. Scary!
Anyhow, I decided I couldn't just stay with that image. So, I pulled out my favourite Lenormand and asked: "What am I not seeing?" My answer, shown here from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004) was Tower, Man, Dog (actually Cat in the deck I used, but that's okay).
What this says to me is that corporate logic is loyal only to itself. This is a good reminder for me today. I had to deal with about 8 different people from various big institutions (all of them male, coincidentally). I kept in mind that, no matter how friendly they may seem, they are all working to their own (or their company's) agenda. So, time to read the fine print, and listen to my gut.
Afterwards, I meditated, chanting the Goddess chant. I also started off my sitting practice with a visualisation of calling the corners, and then creating a safe space for myself within a ball of light. This is something I often do, but which I haven't done for the last couple of weeks. However, Magic Mentha was kind enough to do a reading for me yesterday, and one of the cards came up mentioned this kind of visualisation, so I decided now was a good time to bring it back into my spiritual practice :)
