The Art of Mardy

I know I appear to have been missing in action for a few days but actually I was right here where you left me, taking full advantage of a few internet connection burps and farts by indulging in a little me time as far as refuelling the creative urge is concerned and also proving that sisters are doing it for themselves by slapping a bit of paint around the residence. I have to admit the place is becoming very girly, little by little, and it feels much more me now.

I wanted to finish the week (or start in this case) by giving a heads up to the art of mardy… (thanks for the inspiration Dawn/Holly/Mum/etc).

Mardy, for those of you considered to be foreign, (which is basically anybody not born and bred in Sheffield, South Yorkshire), is a word used to describe someone who is feeling low in energy or mood and displaying irritability or a short temper as a result, basically a downright grumpy git!

As a Grail Knight I am sensitive to general energies and global shifts and it has become apparent that loads of people have over the last week or so, discovered the art of mardy. It’s an epidemic, the likes of which I have not known (well not for a good few months anyway).

The prolem isn’t that everyone, particularly the girls, are feeling irritable, it’s that they are all going “Whoaa! Where did that come from?” because it’s out of context in the upswing of recent weeks…. like some big orange fellow just ran up tangoed you with the mardy stick! Let me put you out of your misery: it’s the moon. Today in the Western hemisphere is a black moon, meaning the second new moon in a month. Now the black moon is only a date really but the intense energy is this moon rising in Scorpio on the back end of that blessed portal, closing just a few days ago… Scorpio has some pretty passionate energy about it so you will feel things deeply as the clearing out and making room you’ve just done has left you in the void, that beautiful nothingness where seeds must be planted… did you have a plan and seeds at the ready?

An astrologer, which I’m not, could give you the finer details and that’s not what you’re here for so I’m going to give you the lowdown on actually being constructive when your feeling mardy:

This is a time of positive transformation so don’t fight how you feel however contrary it may seem. Now is the time to rest, to plan, to plant seeds for your future and to nurture your sensitive nature. Avoid stressful situations or people and ask the angels to step in and cleanse and protect your aura. Get friendly with the bubble bath and indulge your feminine side (even if you’re a bloke)… in Grail terms this is a time for activating Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, but most of all remember “This too shall pass.”

Happy Black Moon… you’ve earned the right to display the art of mardy… at least until the weekend is over.

I’ll be back tomorrow with an oracle reading for you all… x

 

 

The Faraway Rumble

Grail Oracle 4Grail Oracle Red

Things are afoot that are creating a shade of uncertainty and you may not be able to put your finger on it.

The combination of Principle 4: I AM Truth with the intense red of the 3rd dimensional base chakra is posing the question of what makes you feel secure and whether you are about to compromise that security to follow another’s truth.

The Faraway Rumble is suggestive of an undercurrent of change to which you may feel that you have no real power to stop but by being passive you are actually complicit in allowing your home, whatever home means to you, to be determined by someone or something that has no real interest in your individual hopes, dreams and fears.

When I pulled this combination and began writing, my concentration was fixed on the personal implications of another human being arriving into your home with new ideas and intentions and upsetting the apple cart, but as I got further into the energy it became apparent that more globally and politically this energy is playing out as shifts in power and infrastructure are being negotiated with no real truth for us to make a discernable choice that has not been touched by hype and propaganda.

It’s not my forte to explore the political scene but I wanted to make you aware on both a personal and transpersonal level that just because that rumble still seems faraway doesn’t mean that it isn’t your home, your security, your life that will be directly affected by the oncoming tremor.

This week you will be met with a choice and this choice may have been on the horizon for some time but now you are confronted with a tangible countdown to change. The truth is not obvious, your truth I mean, simply because you do not have enough information to form a clear picture in your mind of what accepting this change will really mean for your future… don’t be fooled by the shiny promises of those who are selling you this new life, do your own research… explore deep within your being for your own truth. Take the time to address your own personal goblins so that you can choose from love and not fear. Remember that a Grail Knight is a hero not an idiot… the quest requires risking it all for love but even those risks need to be calculated.

Love asks what’s best for everyone and comes up with a beautiful compromise it doesn’t say “…you would if you loved me.”

The Faraway Rumble is heading in your direction, time to assess what really makes you feel secure.

More next week… x
