The Month Ahead Spread for September 2017 – For all those who resonated with The Wild Unknown Tarot, this reading will address the overall energy of the month, what we may find ourselves transitioning towards, what we are moving out of or away from, the challenges we may face, forces that will assist us, and finally what will be helpful to us and what needs to be released, for our highest and greatest good.
Overall Energy & Vibe of the Month:
TWU Keywords: Strong will, Achievement, Triumph
The Chariot gazes at us head on, indicating this is the type of energy necessary to face challenges as they come, stand firm in beliefs and values, and move forwards with swift momentum and unbridled stamina. The ethereal creature stands alone in autonomy, sure of its path. Gentle, yet independent and confident. Around its neck is a pentacle, symbolizing the ability to harness what is desired and the power to manifest all that is chosen for the path ahead. The waning crescent moon on its forehead symbolizes the power to release, the ability to go within, and follow one’s own intuition and inner guidance.
The Chariot represents a great deal of movement this month, but comes with a reminder to be sure of the direction you wish to move in. Face challenges directly, and head on, instead of avoiding them. Be bold, and stand firm in your ideals. Take time this month to be clear on your goals and that which you are manifesting. Hold the space necessary to make a plan on how this will be accomplished. Let your intentions be crystal clear so that this swift movement and transition will have an appropriate direction and purpose, and will not end up a waste of energy. Go within and trust your own intuition to guide you to harnessing and manifesting all that you desire. Draw in all of the resources available to you and figure out how you will use them to your advantage.
This card brings assurance that the month of September will be as productive and successful as you wish to make it, but the key word is you. What will you make out of this month? What will you achieve? What direction will you move towards?
Be bold and confident in order to show up for whatever life has to offer.
What to Focus Energy On:
Son of Swords
TWU Keywords: Determined, Forceful
The Son of Swords is determined, and once he sets his sights on something, he will not stop until he gets it. He is swift, laser-focused, and action-oriented. He is not easily distracted, which is the energy you must embody in order to achieve your goals this month. Similar to The Chariot, the Son of Swords contains a great deal of movement, reiterating the message that this month will be action-oriented with change, transition, and momentum. It is important to be clear about exactly what you want and the direction you wish to move towards.
What have you set your sights on this month? What will you continue to pursue until you get? Take care this month that your efforts are not careless, selfish, or blind-sighted.
Once the Son of Swords desires something, there is no stopping him, so make sure that you are headed in the right direction, and not focused on what needs to be left behind. Stay present, stay determined, stay persistent
A note on the direction of the card within the spread – the Son of Swords is flying towards that which needs to be released or overcome – the Mother of Pentacles. This indicates that extra special attention is needed to make sure that our focus is not on something from the past that we are trying to move on from. In an effort to have balance, make sure we are not overindulging in a certain area. It is time to shift out of an energetic pattern we find ourselves in, and make a conscious effort to move into the direction that we desire, by being the change that we wish to see.
Be not resistant to change, but move fluidly through the patterns of life.
Energy We are Moving Away From:
Mother of Pentacles
TWU Keywords: Domestic, Loving
The Mother of Pentacles brings forward a nurturing energy of support, comfort, and security.
We find ourselves moving out of a pattern of constantly caring for and supporting others, and worrying about our material comforts. We are moving out of this desperate need for security and find ourselves moving into unknown territory. We are less focused on the external, and more focused on what is going on within the mind.
The Mother of Pentacles has a beautiful energy, and it is important that we do not neglect certain traits she brings in terms of supporting and caring for others, yet we are moving to a space where we are feeling more analytical, intellectual, and logical as seen with the Father of Swords. It is time to focus on ourselves and our goals this month, as we have very fluid and action-oriented energies to assist us. Since we now realize that we are fully supported by the Universe, it becomes less about this security, warmth, and comfort, and more about continuing to assess and analyze where we are currently, where we want to get to, and exactly how to make this happen.
We move out of the space of the external and physical, and more towards the introspective, analytical and creative space. From Earth to Air, Feminine to Masculine, we are capitalizing on this transformative energy to help us to achieve our goals.
Remember overall, that balance of these opposing energies is crucial to maintain this momentum.
What May be Challenging:
Wheel of Fortune
TWU Keywords: Destiny, Fate, Change of Course
It may be a challenge this month for us to throw caution to the wind and to break out of this comfort zone illustrated by the Mother of Pentacles. This could be a major change of course for some of us, and involves really breaking out of that space of needing safety and security. We may find ourselves going out on a limb, in order to fully embody all that we wish to. We may see ourselves taking more risks than usual. We may need a “change of course” from the direction of the Son of Swords.
Are we pursuing and spending our time, energy and attention on manifesting and (moving towards) what we want? Or are we wasting our energy focusing on things that need to be left in the past? Sometimes it might be difficult to completely trust the Universe, and sometimes it is a challenge to take complete responsibility for our thoughts, words, actions and present realities.
We must realize that everything is intricately connected in complex and mysterious ways. There is an overall plan for our soul that is unfolding through the choices that we make, and actions that we take, for our highest good.
This card represents a turning point, which could pose a challenge. Maybe we feel we aren’t ready to move in a certain direction, or things are happening too quickly for us, or things maybe aren’t turning out for us the way we had initially planned.
Trust in the divine flow of the Universe. Trust your emotions and honor them. Just as the season changes from Summer to Fall, day turns to night and back to day again, the moon waxes and wanes, the Wheel of Fortune represents fate and the intricate web of interconnectedness. Sit back, observe, and trust all that is unfolding.
What Needs to be Released:
Nine of Swords
TWU Keywords: Nightmares, Anguish
The Nine of Swords represents anguish, nightmares and terror, and whenever it comes out in a reading it symbolizes self-destructive thought patterns that are no longer serving our highest timeline. Both the Nine of Swords and the Ten of Swords indicates a need for shadow work to be done. It could be that the change of course represented by the Wheel of Fortune is so difficult due to limiting thought patterns we are having about a certain aspect of our lives.
Our thoughts are the seeds of creation, and we attract back to us what we put out into the Universe. Yes, thoughts are energy. A thought sent out into the Universe is forever. Thoughts are powerful, and if those thoughts filling your head are of a lower vibration, then that is what you will be attracting, and your external reality will reflect what is within.
It is time to release destructive and self-sabotaging patterns and belief systems. Allow yourself permission to let go of these limiting cycles that keep us stuck in the same lower vibrational energy. The first step to this is to acknowledge and become aware of whenever you are having a thought that does not align with your highest truth. As soon as you notice this, do not place judgment on yourself, as we are all human beings in a processing of learning and evolving. Just notice it and make the choice to shift your thought process. Release the thought with love. Engage in an action that raises your vibration whether it be something simple like drinking a glass of water, taking a few deep grounding breaths, or even listening to your favorite song. There is always something that you can do to shift this energy. Once you change your internal state, watch the Universe respond to meet you.
What will Assist Us:
Ten of Swords
TWU Keywords: Rock Bottom, Melodrama
“If you act like a victim, you are likely to be treated as one” – Paulo Coelho
The Ten of Swords shows up in an interesting position of that which can assist us this month, and fits hand in hand with what we need to be releasing, as shown in the Nine of Swords. This card is an indication that ending the cycle of drama and victimization will help us in moving forward with our goals and aspirations. Once we can recognize something and become aware of it, we are then able to do what is necessary to shift it and create change. We must realize that we are always the ones in control. While we may not be able to change consequences of a situation or how someone may treat us, we always have the choice of how we respond, how we internalize it, and how it affects us in our present state.
The Ten of Swords is a reminder for us to try to see all different sides of a situation. Practice changing your perspective in a nonjudgmental and logical way. Use creativity and inner wisdom to come to a fair conclusion, and use the lessons to your advantage. With this, we are then able to release a cycle that was painful or has already achieved its purpose in teaching us what we needed to learn. It is now time to move on.
We can choose to see a negative situation (betrayal, heartbreak, victimization, backstabbing) as a learning experience which can then be used to our benefit. Sometimes this helps to end or release a certain cycle or pattern in order to generate new waves of thought.
What Will We Gain:
Father of Swords
TWU Keywords: Fair, Just, Analytical
The Father of Swords comes to us in the position of what we are moving towards, what we are gaining this month, or what we are aspiring to. This energy is one of authority, command, mastery and intellect. Some of us are finding ourselves involved in situations where school is again starting for the year, and this can be a perfect indication of a return to structure and routine, and the act of exercising the brain. This Father of Swords energy is powerful, opinionated, and highly moral and ethical.
This card comes to us as a reminder that we can have complete control of our thoughts, words, and actions. We co-create our realities, and we have the power to analyze certain situations and make changes for our highest and greatest good.
You are the creator of your reality, and once negative thoughts are released, ending a cycle of victimization and feelings of betrayal, you will rise to this position of great power and authority within your own life, so that you can accomplish the tasks you desire, and leave your own special mark on the world.
The overall energy of the month of September will be that of movement, autonomy, independence, and taking on your experience with a thundering gallop. The wind in your hair, the sun at your back, this month is yours for you to do whatever you choose, to move you forward and ahead. This month is about realizing the direction you want to go in, and moving swiftly with conviction. Own it child! At this very same time, we must be mindful of balance.
We are moving out of a space of feeling the need to nurture and care for everyone else around us, moving away from the need to seek security and comfort. We have already established this, and while caring for and nurturing others is incredibly important, this month is about us, and our own unique vision. It is about self-care, being true to our own needs and desires, and cultivating an analytical, precise, and logical mindset to accomplish goals. This month is less about what we can do for others, and more about what we can do for ourselves, while still maintaining mindfulness of balance.
This month, we are moving towards becoming a master of our own thoughts and words, through balance, fairness, wisdom, and creativity.
It is now important that we focus on our direction and our goals, making sure we are divinely aligned with and aware of the direction we are moving towards. It is not the time to be stuck in the past. Instead, propel forward, setting sights on something and remaining consistent, focused and driven. You are an unstoppable force this month. It is important to realize that the time for feeling any sense of victimization is behind us. It is time to move forward from any feelings of betrayal, or hurt. These painful experiences can be viewed as blessings, as they help us to realize what should remain in your present reality and what needs to go.
Any hurtful experience is a lesson about that which we need to let go of. This cycle has ended, and the events of the past have helped us to draw important conclusions necessary for release.
Painful past events and experiences help us to be stronger for all the good yet to come. Instead of dwelling on any negative events, realize that you are co-creating your reality, and that this balance is essential for harmony. It is time to recognize any negative thought patterns that are keeping us stuck in the same cycles. Once we have an awareness of these patterns, they can be acknowledged, released with love, and replaced with thoughts that will keep us empowered, independent, and charging ahead towards the future. You are the one in control.
