Card of the Day – 15 August: Maven of Masks

Maven of Masks

 

Today’s card is MAVEN OF MASKS from the Divine Circus Oracle by Alana Fairchild.

This card asks: Who do you want to be? Try that self on for size! You might just discover another genuine you, beyond your known identity. The Maven of Masks tells you, “Act as you wish to be, and so you shall be!”

Have you ever felt the liberation of feeling like a different person when on holiday, travelling in another part of the world or stepping into a world where people don’t know you? The masks have come off and you get to choose who you are going to be. You might feel unfamiliar ways of being-more assertiveness, more confidence, more vulnerability, more feminine or masculine energy all rising up from within you. These ways of being might not seem like you, not the you that you have thought yourself to be, but just because they are different, new, unfamiliar, doesn’t also make them inauthentic. Quite the opposite! The Maven of Masks card comes to you when it’s time to try on another personality for size, to see how much of it ends up being authentically you, just a newly discovered you, but true nonetheless.

Have you heard the expression, fake it till you make it’? Some people don’t like this idea. They feel it is not genuine. It depends how you use the idea to your advantage. There is a difference between pretending to be someone or something you are not, and experimenting, exploring, expressing a self you know is within you, but are yet to fully realise yourself to be. In truth, we have the entire universe within us. If you want to discover new qualities in you, you are going to have to start somewhere. Believe, first of all, that you have undiscovered depths and diversity in you. Second, you have to play not play-acting, but playing. What is it like to show up for life as if you already have all the courage and sass you long for?

I’ve included a gorgeous pyrite egg today. Pyrite a very positive stone. It overcomes inertia and feelings of inadequacy. It facilitates tapping into abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. Psychologically. Pyrite relieves anxiety and frustration and boosts self worth and confidence.

Have a magical day! 🔮✨🌟
