The Mask/Emotions Card
It’s the NEW MOON today. New moons are a time to plant new seeds that will come into fruition on the next full moon (Aug 18th).
So, how do masks and new moons relate? Good question!
Here is what I am getting about this card. It is speaking to me about personal growth, removing ‘old masks, old skins’ and taking a step closer to our True Nature and our true potential. It’s about releasing what no longer serves us and planting the new seed of what wants to be created.
Masks can be used to bring out our best as well as to cover up our true selves. Masks have been used in many cultures for protection, disguise, performance, or entertainment. Masks have been used for both ceremonial and practical purposes.
Sometimes we can use masks to hide behind our (perceived) weaknesses to the world and even to ourselves. We tend to consider weakness, well… weak. However, if we learn how to turn to face our weakness and get to know it intimately, we can work with it instead of being repelled from it and turn it into our strength.
How have you been playing it small? Even big ego masks are really playing it small underneath.
The person in the card holding up the masks is representing our true self. He/she is not hiding behind the masks and knows the importance of showing up as their True Self.

What is no longer serving you? What are you ready and willing to let go of? What wants to be created?
Take some time today, even five minutes to identify what mask, old part, old pattern you are ready to let go of and set your intentions of what you want to manifest/ of what wants to be created. Plant these new seeds today, listen for guidance, take some action steps and then check back in on the full moon (Aug 18th) to see what has transpired! Remember...where the mind goes energy flows…
Happy planting! :)
