Rosh Chodesh

Today it is Rosh Chodesh, the Jewish festival of the new moon. The moon represents the feminine presence of God, called the Sjechina. The moon -growing and shrinking- shows that God can change and become new. This can stimulate us to renew ourselves. I have pulled a card month with the question what I can renew during this moon cycle. I have pulled the Wheel of Fortune from the Tarot of Jane Austen. 


The Wheel of Fortune is an optimistic card. I can renew my optimism, that is a first. The wheel is also about cycles and lifecycles. This is the month in which my daughter goes to the secondary school, a new lifecycle for her and for me as a mother. The wheel of the year is turning towards, autumn, a new season of teaching. Halfway this month I will write the invitations for people who want to attend classes or workshops. 

Expectation and change is in the air this month. In order to renew I need to go along with this.
