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
