Hello! Good day, soul friends! I hope the retrogrades this month are treating you well. For me, things have been a bit unusual with separate challenges presenting themselves to allow me to learn to really slow down and check back in. I hope you are listening to your needs.
Today's guidance comes from the L'Oracle des Reflets deck by Célia Melesville.

Did you choose your card, yet?
If you picked Card 1:
The Refuge -
Rest after effort. It is time to return to your self. Make some time for chosen isolation.
This card implies that a period of rest, mediation, rejuvenation, and recuperation is in order; it usually comes forward when you're encountering or coming out of a particularly emotional or mentally taxing experience. This is a time to heal, to be with your soul, and to continue moving forward. Allowing space JUST for your reflection is both needed and long overdue.
Reposing and taking moments for yourself will give you the opportunity to LOOK at a problem or situation instead of being IN it. It's a chance to stand back, view your life with clarity and renewed appreciation, and see where changes can be made to create a healthier and stronger foundation, enabling you to take your next step.
This card shows a period of rest and recovery after a time of challenge, with the promise that, once recovered, you can and will return to the challenge. Allow healing. And also respect your own limits. It is necessary for you to retreat in order to renew your vitality and reconnect with your sacred center. Set aside time for stillness.
If you were drawn to Card 2:
The Match -
Trigger. Push towards action. It is time for brutal awakening. Need for change. Breakthroughs are available to us now, if we are ready to take them on.
This is a reminder to TAKE ACTION and trust that your soul and the power of your spirit will grasp you firmly by the hand and guide you, but you must take the first step toward healing and let for of the mental distress. Don't suffer in silence - reach out for the help that's available.When we first begin to act, we often find ourselves exploring the paths walked by those who came before us, in order to discover and determine the best way to implement our ideas. However, that same exploration can inspire new ideas that break with tradition, because something old has been re-imagined and expressed by a mind with a unique perspective to make it relevant in the present.
A match is literally transformed when it is lit. It is destroyed in the process of giving forth the fire that it can give. The energy of this time is not just change or destruction; it is change or destruction followed by renewal. Almost without exception in life, when one door may closes, another is opening. Will you have the courage to step through?
If you chose Card 3:
Loss of balance. A need for unification. Opposite point of view. Compromise and misunderstandings. There may be personal differences. Here we have a reminder of the duality within each of us: Dark and Light, ego and Soul, Male and Female.
Resolution of inner conflict is often necessary before we move ahead. It is important at this time that we work toward cooperation and reconciliation, within and without. Unity comes first and last. In between we have the illusion of duality, which we all believe in for a very long time. This apparent duality is ultimately shown to be an illusion, but it is an illusion through which we must pass, through which we learn and grow, and then once again return to unity by working through the duality of this time.
This card celebrates the transformation that is taking place in our experience of reality and our willingness to shift from the separation of duality consciousness to the certainty of our connectedness with All That Is. You are gaining a greater appreciation for and are participating in the evolution of consciousness. As you continue your visionary path, allow your awareness and understanding of duality and unity to nurture this evolution.
