Adar 5778

New Moon Reading

In the longstanding tradition of mystical Jews and lifestyle publications, we bring you New Moon Readings. They aren’t fortune telling or magic, and they’re not about luck or a mysterious power. They draw upon on the wise monthly themes of the Hebrew calendar, the influence of the solar system on our daily lives, and, sometimes, totally pagan prognostication tools (tarot!) to guide us.

The month of Adar is a celebration. The Talmud says, “When the month of Adar arrives, we increase in joy.” It is a season of miracles and good luck.

This is the month in which Moses was born and also died. Adar is the last month that the Jewish people spent in Egypt before their exodus. And, who can forget Purim? The joyful celebration that commemorates the victory of the Jews against their oppressor Haman.

As we plant the seeds of this new moon and new month, what is it that we need to know going into a month made for miracles?

The cards say: trust yourself.

Trust all of the insights you have been gathering. You are a channel, and ideas and revelations will come easily to you now.

You instinctively know what must be left behind, and you have big ideas for what is being brought into your world. This is the month where you step up your game. It feels like the clouds have parted and you are able to see it all clearly.

Protect what you hold dear, but don’t cling too tightly, especially not to material things. Create a world of abundance, but be careful of being greedy or miserly.

You have more when you give more.

Have a vision for your future, but allow some things that you thought you wanted to fall away. Protect your finances, your home, and your life, but be open to the expansive miracles you can’t imagine yet.
