28 Mar The Madame’s Bone Oracle Reading 3.26.20
Today, the spirits chose STRANGE, MIND, and MOON from The Madame’s Bone Oracle.
I’ll break down the meaning of each bone, and then we’ll discuss them as a group.
STRANGE: Strangers, strange situations or places – people, places, things you don’t know, Without
MIND: Problem solved by thinking it through, analytical, logical
MOON: Subconscious, Hidden, Dreams, Night, Feminine
In our current situation, these bones are eerily on point. These are strange times, indeed. We are all certainly outside of our comfort zones right now (STRANGE), being quarantined and isolated from each other (physically, at least). Our world has become increasingly interconnected through social media and technology, but increasingly disconnected interpersonally. We feel like friends on Facebook, but we’re strangers in real life. This pandemic has made that glaringly obvious. Do we really care about others – friends as well as strangers? In this reading, MIND is directing us to use our logical skills to overcome this issue, and when combined with STRANGE, it tells us to think outside the box. Let’s talk logical facts: physical distancing and isolation will flatten the curve, and keep others safe. We may want to be closer to those we love right now because of worry and fear, but “outside of the box” (STRANGE) means lets keep a physical distance for their safety. Science is needed now – science is logic, and logic is of the MIND. Stop thinking of this as “I’m stuck at home” and instead think “If I stay home, I keep others safe and this will pass”. We can also use this time to strategize how we will behave differently after the storm passes. Maybe you’ve realized how isolated you have been by choice, and now the choice has been taken away and it’s not so fun anymore (guilty, as charged!). Maybe you’ve realized that you don’t need all the things that you thought were necessities before. Or maybe you’ve realized that you do need more time alone to feel recharged (me too!). The MOON indicates our current predicament is a phase – and things once hidden are being brought to light. Since time began, there have been floods, fires, plagues, and humans that come to destroy. But what happens when the immediate threat is over? We come together to rebuild, and put one foot in front of the other. Like the phases of the MOON, this too shall pass. On the bright side (of the MOON), we’re seeing the goodness in people – the caregivers, the protectors, the ones who are holding us all up. We are seeing that the power structures currently in place are illusional (maybe delusional), and that pyramids are strongest at the base. The industries and jobs seen as “non-essential” are more essential than we thought. Let’s not forget this when all is said and done. And speaking of the MOON, it is in its waxing phase right now, a perfect time for planning and tending to new ideas (STRANGE) that you may have been ruminating on (MIND). ~ The Madame
