Guidance for April - Prepare for Change

I've chosen The Enchanted Map Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid for this month's deck. This is another of my favorite oracle decks. It's nice to dust these decks off after not using them in a while. I'm looking forward to being guided by these cards throughout the month.

For the overall month guidance layout, I picked the popular three-card - Past, Present, and Future spread.

I asked the question, "How should we approach this month? What can we expect?"

Past - Stuck in the Mud (reversed) - Did you stall out in March? I definitely felt as if I was treading mud during the last week. This card in the reversed position reveals a possible stall due to your lack of desire to actually reach your goal. You may have chosen the wrong path, or merely taken a side street. It is possible that you need to re-evaluate your desired destination. Things change with each and every breath we take. When you began last month, you may have thought you wanted one thing, but the closer you got the less desirable it became. Or maybe you lost track of what it was you wanted and just went astray. No matter the circumstance, it may be important as you enter April, to think about your recent stall and consider how you can get back on track.

Present - Ride the Wave (reversed) - This card in the reversed position suggests you may not yet be ready to Ride the Wave. You need to take this time to prepare for what's coming. Take some time to invest in your skills. Take some classes, talk to some experts, whatever you need to do to be ready for what's ahead. This will tie back to what you discovered about your moment in the Mud. Your new direction may be slightly different than what you first planned. Maybe you need to learn a new skill, or just brush up on an old skill. The main objective here is to stay in preparation mode for most of the month.

Future - Metamorphosis - Are you ready to become a butterfly? At the end of the month, you'll find that life has changed in a big way. There will be some pain involved as things fall away - old thinking patterns, a dead relationship, or maybe an old desire. Embrace this cycle, for what you and your life become will be amazing.

Life is never about one straight line from beginning to end. The journey is the main attraction, not the destination. It looks like this month will bring us to a moment where we need to think about where we really want to go and take some new steps toward the new goal. At least until it's time to change course once again. Enjoy the journey!

"The process of change is often painful, for it is never without losses and sacrifice. If you are to transform from one form to another, a part of you needs to die."
