I created the Legacy 3-card spread on a whim, simply to mark the intentions of each of the three New Moons we will experience this fall: Experience, Introspection, Strength. But as I began to unpack it, I realized it’s a much bigger, deeper piece of guidance than the typical 3-card spread. It will serve your work for the next three months, giving you insight and guidance into your soul work for the entire season.
I want to tell you more about it here so you can put it to its best use, should you choose it.
The theme of Autumn is Healing the Spirit.
In the fall, all of nature – including humanity – begins to turn inward. We’re storing up energy, hunkering around hearths or insulating nests, and generally quieting down after the riotous growth of Spring and Summer. This is the perfect time to focus on nourishing and healing our spirits. The New Moons of Autumn give us three waypoints to guide us on this healing journey.
We enter into the season with the moon of Experience. It is heralded by Whale medicine: the one-who-plumbs-our-depths to find our truth – our Song Self. During this moon, we open ourselves to willingly, tenderly expose the old wounds that are ready to be aerated. Please don’t dig into the places not ready for work; this is not an invitation for self-flagellation. I am available to help you hold space for the unveiling of your old stories. If you have significant trauma wanting to come forth, I can help you find a licensed mental health professional in your area.
The Experience card you receive in your Legacy reading will help you navigate this unearthing.
The next phase of Autumn is Introspection. The guardian here is Mouse, who brings the gift of focusing on all the tiny things that make up our larger reality. This moon gives us the time to sift through those pieces that came up during the Experience phase. Here you will scrutinize what meaning comes from your stories: what lessons are learned, what tools have been given, what you want to take forward and what you want to leave behind; what is wheat and what is chaff.
The Introspection card you receive in your Legacy reading will help you navigate this sifting.
The final New Moon work of Autumn is Strength. The tiny, mighty Ant accompanies us as we coalesce all of those sifted experiences into the reality we want to become. Ant reminds us of two great lessons when it comes to building: First, really big things can be done one small step at a time; all the tiny pieces truly can come together as an incredible whole. Second, the work of rebuilding yourself requires gentleness and patience. However broken you may feel right now, however shattered, trust that with patience over time, you will come back together again.
The Strength card you receive in your Legacy reading will help you navigate this healing.
So, you see, the Legacy 3-card spread is big. It spans big work over time. If you order it – and I hope that you do! – I encourage you to append a coaching session (or two, or three) to it. If you can’t manage that, know that I’m available to all my Cards clients via email; let’s follow up on the work presented in your Legacy.
