Card of the Day-12 June 2017

Today’s Card of the Day is the 5 of Cups reversed. This is a reminder that not all “bad” 5-of-cups-thothsituations are negative. Instead they are necessary and full of potential. Instead we ought  to step away from the narrow perspective that is stuck in the details and look at the larger picture which may reveal the situation’s or circumstances’ grander role. Difficult times are brought into our lives for various reasons but they can be used as ways to better ourselves. It is through battling the lower situations that we learn our strength and value, thus allowing us to rise above in our true worth. This doesn’t mean they suck. They do but with this card, we are being challenged to find the silver lining within the disappointment. What can be learned? What is the purpose of this situation? Even the smallest glimmer can shine bright.

Card of the Day-2 June 2017

Ace of Wands Reversed

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back…20170602_000146-1

Actually, no. This card’s meaning for today would be more like the Hokey Pokey–Put your left foot in…put your left foot out…There’s hesitation and a lack of movement forward. It’s as if once a new breakthrough occurs, a new opportunity, desire, or goal, we immediately backtrack. There’s the chance for progress yet we are too afraid of the change or unknown that we refuse to move. This is only wasting valuable fire energy, My Friends. We may have doubts, fears, worries about the situation. What if I’m not good enough?! Whatever the reason, something is hindering our progress and most likely it’s us. We are squandering our potential!

Check yourself. Clear out the bullshit you’ve been feeding yourself and learn what it is that keeps your from continuing forward. Change is a constant and while scary, it’s only once we leave our comfort zone that we begin to grow and transform as a person. Reassess your goals, dreams, values, and motivations. What drives you forward? What keeps you going? Why did you want to do whatever it was in the first place? Recall that reason and really feel it in your heart. Allow your reason to consume you. Understand that you may be complaining of a lack of growth, change, movement, etc. however, it’s already there. Evaluate whether subconsciously you are the one hindering yourself.

I know this is blunter than I would normally explain but this card really pulls a major punch for me right now. It’s shouting, “YOU ARE IN YOUR OWN WAY! IN THIS MOMENT, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!” Sometimes we need that stern talking to and this is a similar case. Don’t let yourself be the reason you don’t move forward. Don’t take a step forward, only to withdraw back. This isn’t the Hokey Pokey, My Friends. You need to keep moving forward–at least right now.

Card of the Day-29 May 2017

King of Wands

Today’s a day of focus and reflection, of honoring and remembering. In the United States we honor those heroic men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we may IMG_20170529_075821_400be free.
Today is nowadays spent with family at the beach or barbecue’s which is why we are being reminded to keep the true meaning of today in mind. I saw a news article yesterday that said Memorial Day has lost its meaning for most Americans. This card is asking that not to be case.

I give honor and thanks to those who have given their lives so that I and my family may be kept free.

Card of the Day-26 May 2017

The Magician Reversed with jumpers-2 of Wands and 6 of Chalices Reversed.

These cards give a very clear message: wait before moving forward!!! With just having celebrated the New Moon (I will be tomorrow), you may be ready to get your feet on the ground and manifest those intentions. However, we’re being told to hold our horses and chill for a bit. Allow those intentions to really set before we begin action. All because weIMG_20170526_005033_605 aren’t actively working towards them doesn’t mean we aren’t doing anything. Remember that!
The Magician is telling us things are not in our control at the moment. Wait. Don’t force it. 2 of Wands is all about looking to the future, reflection, and balancing our thoughts. The magician is balanced so this could be what must be controlled first. 6 of Chalices means that we are being drawn to look back at the past, at the old, but with a sense of detachment. We are being called to release. There may be something from the past you are still secretly clinging to which isn’t going to be conducive to manifestation.

Card of the Day-24 May 2017

Card of the Day
Plus Jumper!
Spring Equinox (Rebirth) and DNA (Karma)

Looks like there were two necessary messages for today and I actually am digging the vibe of these two cards.

Every day is a chance to change,  an opportunity to say “this isn’t who I want to be/am and this isn’t the life I want!”. Just as each sunrise is abundant with powerful potential, it also signifies rebirth which only furthers this idea. A makeover doesn’t happen overnight but you can make that first step at any time. You needn’t be held back by the past.IMG_20170524_081819_166

We see with the DNA card, two snakes which have always been symbols of regeneration and rebirth-shedding the old skin for the new. This card doesn’t only further the concept of rebirth but itself has two incredible messages for us on its own. We are being reminded that we are comprised of dual aspects-our earth bound self and our spirit that comes from and is connected to Spirit. In alignment with Rebirth, we are being guided to find a balance of both these selves. Focus on our higher good, finding a closeness to Spirit while remaining grounded and practical. Easier said than done. It could mean simply having faith in Spirit while working on improving this life.
When I first saw this card I thought of the ancestors. Ask for their guidance and help in this endeavor. ❤

This seems to be some powerful energy here, my friends.

Card of the Day-22 May 2017

Card of the Day
5 of Swords

Some caution is best given today as tensions may rise. Arguments or disagreements you IMG_20170522_080818_019thought were over may reappear. Try to stay grounded and centered and not allow your temper to boil. Tact, caution, discernment, and awareness are key today. *From Rider-Waite Deck

 

Card of the Day-21 May 2017

8 of Chalices Reversed

For whatever you reason, you may have found yourself switching directions in life, whether that be in residence, job, or lifestyle change. This was always as it was meant to be as we’re brought to certain points within our lives so that we may learn lessons and IMG_20170521_080448_717have experiences necessary to our journey in this lifetime. However, all because you are changing or about to make changes doesn’t mean everything must go. It’s like the old saying, “don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”. What does this mean? Well, simply put, you needn’t throw everything away and completely begin anew. There are always good aspects within a negative situation—you just have to dig enough. I’ve been through some challenging times myself that most people won’t ever have to deal with and believe me, I know how daunting and challenging such a task may seem.

Movement and action aren’t the priority today in this aspect. Instead it’s about returning to your center—to your heart space—and reflecting honestly about your journey thus far, where you want to go, and what you would like to take with you. Some things are meant to stay with us. If they had a positive impact on our lives or bring us joy then why deny them simply because we think we should instead focus our attention and energy on a new course? It’s about mixing and melding the old and the new. The dual aspects of life—past and future. Take some time today to really reflect, journal, set your intentions then create a course of action and list of goals in order to manifest this desired life that allows you to continue with certain aspects of the past that you still resonate with as well as the expansive, potential filled future of your dreams. Craft your life well, my friends.
