Card of the Day-10 June 2017

Card of the Day
The Altar Priestess Reversed

This full moon was very illuminating in regards to where we should be going, our IMG_20170610_090359_614direction, and how to focus towards your goal. Something may have been realized last night that was surprising or maybe something which has been known yet not taken action towards. The reason why may be varied but we are being reminded not to lessen our light in this world. We all have a purpose to serve. Also, a priestess understands and utilizes her intuition so pay attention to your own. You aren’t crazy.
Have courage and know thyself. Be ready to walk in your true path and work towards your true purpose in life. 🌕🔮🙏✨

Card of the Day-7 June 2017

Card of the Day-Volcano (Volatility) and Dragonfly (Emergence)

What beautiful yet transformational energy is present today and for the next several IMG_20170607_081759_288days. In fact, I’m certain much of it is due to the upcoming Full Moon on Friday. We’re experiencing a rapid change either inside or around us that either 1) we weren’t expecting or 2) is on a much grander scale than we believed. It’s  quick and is shaking us to our very centers. We may have been holding onto that which no longer serves us for quite some time that now there is nowhere to go but to change. Much akin to the tower card, this change is sudden which can leave us feeling  uncertain or even anxious. Just have faith and trust Spirit.

We’re being reminded that while this may be uncomfortable as our most firmly held beliefs may be reassessed, we are ready for this. When this is all said and done, when the rubble and dust has settled, we will have come into a higher sense of ourselves, the situation, and life as a whole. As I stated above, honestly, what a beautiful experience. The unknown and change can be scary but it is only through these uncomfortable situations that we are able to rise higher.

Card of the Day-6 June 2017

Princess of Cups with 5 and 6 of Cups

The truth is that we are always going to have moments that test our patience, our temperaments, our emotions. This a part of life but just as a lotus is shown, we must rise above the mud and the muck. It is through these very moments we are able to choose to be wiser, kinder, and better–thereby becoming the lotus arising from the mud. Its a deeper sense of awareness that external catalysts don’t have to ripple across our peace IMG_20170606_065604_372within. This is what the fish is saying for today. Fish can be adaptable, dig deep at the subconscious, It’s about wisdom. This seems the theme for today. Wisdom of knowing that while there are always going to be trying times, conflicts with others, or actions which plague and pluck at our emotions, we are capable of rising above with a sense of awareness, understanding, wisdom, and grace (the swan energy). We are coming into our own emotional power, refusing others to steal away our peace and happiness. From stealing away any bit of our power.

In truth, we wouldn’t be fully grateful for the good moments if we didn’t experience the sour ones as well. Sometimes the bad moments seem daunting and overwhelming–as if we will never be capable of overcoming them–but this is what fear does. It puffs up the situation to appear much more terrifying than what it truly is. Don’t give in to fear. Face it with understanding within your heart and even a sense of gratitude for the learning experience.

You may be tested with these very sorts of moments today–whether it be from an event that takes place or from people. Don’t sweat it. Just remember to breathe and if needed, call upon either fish or swan energy for today. Turtle is about persistence so don’t allow yourself to be stopped–keep pushing forward. You are capable of achieving all that you hope. Allow yourself to remain centered and calm with your emotions balanced, in check, and controlled. Don’t give away your power.

Card of the Day-5 June 2017

Today’s Card of the Day is the Ace of Cups reversed with two other cards to clarify: The Star and Queen of Disks (Pentacles). IMG_20170605_044624

We want to heal the world and certainly could agree that it is in need of it. Every day we are bombarded by images and stories of destruction, fear, hate, ignorance, and intolerance. This is unbearable, especially for an empath or healer. We want to spread light into the world. We want to help. However, we can’t spread anything from an empty cup which is bound to happen when we allow ourselves to become drained. We invest so much of our time and energy into these stories and our mission that we forget we must care for ourselves as well. It’s only practical. Before we can share our light, we must be in control of our bodies and selves. Take time to refill your own heart with light. Do something that brings you joy. Go for a walk, paint, dance, play with a pet. Anything to recharge your own heart chakra so that you may be the luminous healer and lightbearer you were meant to be.

This is going to perhaps be the running theme for a bit as this certainly isn’t a quick fix sort of issue. So how can we possibly hope to accomplish this besides fueling our own IMG_20170605_045902joy? I pulled an oracle card for guidance and had one jump out as well. The meaning was more than spot on and I almost gasped when I saw it because duh, why didn’t I think of that?! The actual card pulled actually had me laughing because it took me a moment. So, the card pulled was Full Moon (Completion) which confused me because I didn’t get the completion part. I realized this card was being literal and referring to the Full Moon which is on the 9th. It’s a time to set intentions, release what is no longer serving us, and do manifestation magick. The jumper was Rainbow (Blessings). We can recharge ourselves by counting our blessings each and every day since gratitude raises our vibrations. However, it would seem that this Full Moon is particularly important to do so.

Be grateful for what is right and good in the world, set some intentions, recharge yourself, do some TLC, ignite your passions so that you may spread more light into this world so that we may be healed and whole again.

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-1 June 2017

IMG_20170601_084148_514
Support, Passion, and Archangel Michael

Life gets hard. It’s messy, tough, fun, and overall beautiful. However, it can understandably be difficult to always remain positive, especially in bleak circumstances. I know that.
Today, regardless of whether its a big or small struggle, know you are divinely supported. The Universe/Spirit/God/Goddess are here for you–you need only ask. You don’t have to singlehandedly do everything. Ask for help. Pray and know your words are being heard.
A change in circumstance or environment may be what is best needed. Surround yourself with people who enliven you-not drain. Find joy and bliss in the small things. Allow yourself to feel passionate about something and do it. It doesn’t have to be anything big but something small as lighting a scented candle you enjoy and taking a few moments to bask in the flicker of the flame, dancing in its own joy, while the smell begins to slowly permeate the area.
Above all else, know that the Archangel Michael is always there and will help. Again, all you need do is ask. He is protective and can transmute negative energy. Call to him and ask for help. Meditate on him.
There is a lot of fire energy in this spread so if you are magickally inclined, take some time to invoke and work with fire energy. 💃❤🙏🔥😊

Card of the Day-31 May 2017

Card of the Day (or should I say cards)
Full Moon (Completion) Reversed, 4 of pentacles, 8 of pentacles, king of swords reversed.

We are still working towards the manifestation of a goal, perhaps one formed during the New Moon and this card is telling us now is not the time to sit on our laurels. Instead we must now actively work towards bringing our desire into fruition. How? That’s what I IMG_20170531_083938_841asked before drawing the other 3 cards because direction may be needed.
We may finally be in a place of stability–even if but slightly–which makes this a good time to work towards your goal. Remain conservative of your time, money, and energy as they are your greatest assets presently. However, do not become stingy and possessive about money.
Diligent hard work and attention to detail is called upon now. This isn’t a goal that will appear magickally from nowhere. Instead you must roll up your sleeves and get to it.
However, we end with a warning and that is don’t become aggressive. Don’t force anything to happen. If we spend too much energy and effort without necessary breaks and pauses then we can easily burn out. When we force things to manifest we are actually working against them and in fact could cause it to take longer to appear-if at all.
We have plenty of work ahead of us that is the only way this goal will manifest. Now there is a change of stability and circumstance to allow for this to come into reality. However, don’t become possessive, aggressive, or force it. Let it organically come into being.
