Today's cards are from The Sacred Self Care Oracle by Jill Pyle.
Above you will see a picture showing three cards 1, 2 & 3 (left to right). Close your eyes, tune in, and see which card you are drawn to. I have put crystals below each card as you may be drawn to a particular crystal instead. Scroll down to the number and read the message that is meant to find you.

Use your hands
Mantra: I create magic with my hands
Reconnect with the magic that comes from creating with your hands. What do you feel called to make or fix? Sign up for a pottery, wood making, or glass-blowing class, or anything else that piques your curiosity, and reminds you how empowering it can be to create your reality with your own two hands.
Get crafty and do some DIY projects - maybe bring new life and colour into an old piece of furniture by repainting it. Or make some original art to adorn your walls and beautify your home.
Is there something broken around the house that's an easy fix that you could do on your own or with a little help? Even just getting your hands dirty by weeding a flowerbed or tightening the screws on a loose door hinge will give you an incredible feeling of accomplishment that will fuel your confidence as you tackle bigger and more complex issues in your life.
When was the last time you created something with your hands, and how did it make you feel?
Sync with the moon
Mantra: I embrace my ebb and flow, my many phases, and the cycles of life.
The moon is a powerful celestial entity that reflects the flow of our cycles and the many phases we go through. Look up the current moon phases for guidance on which energy will serve you best at this time.
Guidance For Each Moon Phase
New Moon: Carve out the time and space to get clear on your desires and set your intentions. Write down what you want to manifest to amplify your intentions and keep track.
Waxing Crescent: Focus on manifesting your intentions and keep visuals around for support.
First Quarter: Take actions to show your devotion to manifesting your intentions.
Waxing Gibbons: Celebrate the beauty of the human experience and all that is moving in your desired direction.
Full Moon: Take note of how your intentions have manifested, reflect with gratitude, and let go of what is no longer serving you. Put your crystals and sacred belongings outside under the moonlight for recharging and cleansing.
Waning Gibbous: Clean house and continue releasing what is no longer serving you.
Third Quarter: Connect with the natural world and let your awareness be drawn to the divine beauty of lives cycles and timelines.
Waning Crescent: Cleanse the energy and reflect with gratitude on the cycle that's coming to a close.
Throughout this moon's cycle, track how you are feeling. Notice how your energy waxes and wanes, and how your sexual appetite fluctuates. Also, if you are female and in your bleeding years, track the moon phase that's present when your menstrual cycle begins and ends. This is a beautiful exercise to do over the long term so that you can see more trends in how your cycles relate to those of the moon.
Be sure to keep an eye out for local moon gatherings you can join, or if there isn't one in your area, host your own!
Journal Prompt: After spending a month tracking your energetic, sexual, and other cycles throughout the moon phases, what has been illuminated for you?
Mantra: I feel embodied and empowered to move with strength and grace.
Create and clear energy flow throughout your body by introducing a new movement practice into your life. Structured or free-flowing, this could be anything from yoga, walking, or Qigong, to rock climbing, running, or swimming - whatever suits your tastes. With any movement practice, the most important thing is to tune in to how your body is feeling and move in a supportive way. Relish the feeling of being present inside your miraculous body.
Diversify your movement practices so that you're working in all areas of your body. Seek out a new or forgotten movement practice to help gently push the boundaries of your comfort zone. It's better to start small than not start at all. Even if it's just 15 minutes per day, get your body moving in a way that feels exhilarating for you!
What movement practice would you like to try but find excuses not to pursue? How would working through these blocks and moving more freely make you feel?
