Brew an Chéad Lá: The Wild Week Ahead January 7-13, 2019

Brew an Chéad Lá- First Day Brew. Time to gear up for the week ahead! 

We're in a waxing crescent phase of the moon all week, which means it's time for us to gather our resources before we take action on our new moon goals. Anything you do during a waxing phase toward strengthening the physical body will have extra oomph to it, so take advantage of this time.The moon will be in the signs of Aquarius, Pisces, and Aries this week, as well. We have no planets in retrograde!

Quote of the Week

"To be wild is to be liberated, cyclical, and emotionally intelligent. The wild will never sin against itself, and that means you will find you cannot go back to an older, smaller version of you." - Danielle Dulsky

This Week's Tarot Card: The Queen of Swords

Looking for this artist to attribute. If you know him/her, please message me!

The Queen of Swords combines the mental clarity and intellectual power of the suit of Swords with the maturity and receptiveness of the Queen. This is a  good week for using our intellect, and unbiased judgment, while remaining flexible, and open to input from a variety of sources.  Lead from the head, and not the heart this week. Seek out the truth, and filter out what is fact from fiction.

You may feel that it's time to "tell it like it is." You'll have quick-thinking abilities this week, be highly perceptive, and be able to get straight to the point. Your opinion will be respected, and you may find others seeking out your advice.

Fox Totem

Key words: Cunning, strategy, quick-thinking, adaptability, cleverness, and wisdom

In China, fox animal symbolism revolved around the afterlife. Lore has it that a fox sighting was thought to be a signal from the spirits of the deceased.

Fox animal symbolism takes a turn of intelligence in the Celtic realm, as the Celts believed the fox to be a guide, and was honored for its wisdom. The Celts understood the fox knows the woods intimately, and they would rely upon the fox as their guide in the spirit world.

In Japan, the fox was considered one of the rain spirits, and a messenger of Inari the rice god. Here the fox also symbolizes longevity and protection from evil.

In Native American lore, fox animal symbolism deals with several interpretations, depending on the nation’s culture. One perspective observes the fox as a wise and noble messenger. The other views the fox as a trickster playing pranks, or worse - luring one to demise. The third  views fox as the ultimate camouflager; teaching you how to remain hidden when you wish to do so.

Fox's message is to employ strategy, lay-of-the-land, quick reflexes, and intuition to whatever you are hunting. Whether your prey is physical, metaphysical, emotional or mental, fox can help you capture that which you seek. Fox likes to be hidden, not make waves, adapt to his/her surroundings; and Fox encourages you to do the same this week. Look for subtle ways to target and acquire your goals.
