Monthly Tea Leaf Forecast for September 2017
Each month, we take a sample from the first batch of our tea of the month club tea, set our intentions, and ask the tea to tell us what we need to know. Tea club members get the full reading, along with lots of other community benefits. Enjoy this summary! This page is updated on/around the 6th of each month.
As the year wanes and grows dark, it’s tempting to see the negative: less light, more chill, nature seems to be dead or dying. But flip that around to the positive: we have an opportunity to create our own light, to seek coziness and warmth, and allow ourselves and nature to take a well-deserved rest. This month, the tea reflects the season back to us — with a message of wisdom and renewal.
Present: Of all things, a shark was swimming toward the center of the cup — not a symbol I would normally have expected to see! But it makes sense; the shark is a symbol of intuition and emotional wisdom, of renewal and transition instead of death — much like this dark half of the year. It reminds us that rest is not failure but wisdom. Shark is a fierce protector of the sacred, of life and family, and it takes an active part in living life to the fullest, but to do that it must take time to renew itself.
