How to Get Inspired and Fight to Win this Aries New Moon
by Kathy Crabbe

It's the New Moon in Aries on April 7 and I sat down to meditate in advance so that I could channel messages for you while in a deep trance-state meditation surrounded by the Aries energy I had created to decorate my altar. I turned to my Goddess Zodiac Book for altar suggestions such as gemstones, plants, foods etc. which you can read about below and see pictured above.

Aries New Moon Inspiration Journal Prompt ~ A Dance with Grasshopper

What is it you WANT more than anything? Write it down in your Moon Musing Journal. Now take that desire into your heart and pray for guidance. Write down what you receive.

If you're having a tough time doing this exercise then try to allow all your doubts and fears to simply flow in and out of you…release and let go. Next, envision a grasshopper extending his arm out to you for a dance. As you follow the steps and dance to the tune, let your body lead you and see what comes. Thank your grasshopper guide and move on – wake up – come back. If you feel like sharing any messages you receive please feel free to share below.

Lefty Oracle Card Guidance ~ Is this worth fighting for?

I also turned to my Lefty Oracle Deck which will soon be released for purchase as a 52-card deck and guidebook – yehhh! This is a 16 year journey for me and I'm happy to say that it's finally going to happen. I'm working steadily on the writing that will accompany each card and I will be sharing it starting today in conjunction with the New Moon.

The Lefty Oracle card I chose to represent the energy of the Aries New Moon is a Fire Element card called "Is this worth fighting for?" Her/His story is included in the back of the prints I've just released.

About the Lefty Oracles: Healing and humorous, the Leftys guide us to receive soul sourced messages and develop our innate intuition. This print is part of the 52-card Lefty Oracle Deck painted by Kathy Crabbe, using her non-dominant left hand.
