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.

Brightest of Blessings,

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. 🌕🔮🙏✨

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-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.

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.

I hope y’all had a great New Moon!

Card of the Day

3 Swords Reversed

Today the focus is on love and forgiveness. Love is the highest vibration and the frequency through which we connect to Spirit and the Divine more readily and with ease. It may be difficult, and you may have reason, but allow yourself to forgive others. When we hold grudges and anger we don’t leave much room for love to enter into our lives and hearts. Our vibrations lower. Instead forgive them. If you can’t do it for them then please, do it because you love yourself. As Buddha said, “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” Life is full of ups and downs, highs and lows, pain and love, that we must learn to grow instead of remaining stagnant.

Wait, what does this have to do with love? Love is the vibration we should aspire to, radiating forth from our being and into this world that is in much need of it. This doesn’t mean that state of being is possible at every moment. We are human after all. This is where forgiveness comes in. As I said, we’re human which means we’re prone to fallacies, mistakes, and just plain old screw ups. Just as important as it is for us to apologize, we likewise need to forgive. Don’t forget: forgiveness isn’t forgetting. You can forgive someone and never trust them again. My pawpaw has this saying he picked up somewhere that I’ve heard countless times, “Love their soul but hate their ways.” We should love everyone but that doesn’t mean we have to like them. We’re all companions on the same journey, we’re all spirits having a human experience, and we all contain sparks of the Divine. By realizing we come from the same source but have different lessons to learn does make it easier to love everyone as your fellow brothers and sisters while not necessarily agreeing with them.

Forgive those who have wronged you so that you may heal and instead raise yourself to the pure vibration of love. Love everyone—even if you don’t like them. Share your love with the world. Do something that brightens up each day. Help others. You can still fight injustice with love in your heart. When we can radiate this unconditional love, life becomes a joyous celebration of all that is.

 

(I hope this makes sense. The words were just evading me this morning as I couldn’t find exactly how to articulate what it was the card was telling me.)

Card of the Day
Queen of Wands Reversed

You may find difficulties in focusing your thoughts and attention today. There is just a rather spacey feeling and you don’t find yourself mentally grounded very well. This may stem from an outside source but before pointing fingers, take notice of yourself and ask if you may be the cause of it. Low self confidence may be the issue. Perhaps with these retrogrades you’ve began questioning so much about yourself and your beliefs that you almost feel like you don’t recognize or even know yourself.
Confront these issues and understand, if that was the case, that you aren’t a new and unknown person. You have only awakened to who your spirit always was. Find connection to yourself and your beliefs. Spend some time reflecting. Journaling may help. Know too that sometimes we do become so absorbed in our thoughts and worries that we forget to return to earth and ground. 😉
