How do you identify yourself?
How does your perceived identity affect the way you live your life?
This morning I open to the cards to see what this day may be. I am using the Medicine Cards and the Voyager Tarot to bring inside to our our day.
Elk shows us that strength and stamina used wisely can help us to accomplish our goals. Elk also whispers wise counsel that if we are showing ourselves off too loudly we may attract danger instead of pleasure. Today move forward using your power and stamina to reach your end goal, but do this quietly and with intention.
The path ahead shines brightly with many sparkly distractions, do not pause too long to gaze into those distractions.
Allow your heart time and space to be cleansed and purified. Today may offer some healing for the wounds that may be keeping your heart closed.
If the path ahead for you to calls to use your hands to create, as an artist would, be aware that your brilliance may shine brightly. Allow that brilliance to create without restriction even if the end results are not as expected. This is a place today of great transformation and how you think of creativity.
What thoughts have you been saving and nurturing, waiting for the perfect time to share and express?
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
~Henry David Thoreau~
What is hidden is the importance of connecting to your own belief system. This may be something that you have put aside for a while, but perhaps today it may be revisited?
Ultimately what will be revealed today is a place of growth and perhaps even an epiphany or two.
This morning I pulled a card from the Tao Oracle, and as I lifted the deck after pulling that card another card made its way onto the table. Both of these cards told a similar story even though in a different way.
Today is for slowing down and cutting back, perhaps even fading away into the shadows so that what it is that we are doing is not observed by others. This is part of our personal journey and has nothing to do with our outward community. There is no doubt that there will be time enough to put our actions on display at a later time, but for today it is all about slowing down and without our own personal growth.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry~
Today we ask the Dark Grimoire Tarot what may be in the week to come regarding our business ventures.
Pulling the devil card from this deck may seem a bit ominous, and indeed the message may bring some deep shadow work. Taking a look at the things that we have put in the background, not wanting to look at them deeply, knowing now is the time to open our eyes.
You need an attitude of service. You’re not just serving yourself. You help others to grow up and you grow with them.
So much of what you do is being of service to others. This does not necessarily mean that this is a place of slavery, but indeed at times that may be the feeling. Keep your eyes open during the week to come and notice when you are being of service to others and when others are being of service to you. There should be an overall balance of give and take. There may be a change when you realize that you are offering to others from habit or misguided feeling of responsibility. Allowing others to succeed or fail by their own actions can sometimes be the kindest thing one can do.
I am using three very distinctly different decks in this morning’s draw. The first deck is the Medicine Cards, one of my go to decks. I am also using the TAO Oracle. To round it off there is the Conscious Spirit Oracle deck as well.
Today’s message is not about the big picture or drastic change, but it is about the little things that make life so beautiful. Freedom, simple heartfelt emotions, knowing one’s own truth, and taking everything with a smile, are among the little things the cards allude to. This is indeed a time to take all of those simple things to heart and also to observe how loyalty comes into play in your life today.
The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.
As the little things come into view today; perhaps the bigger picture may be lost for a moment and it may be surprising that your higher self will shine as you will be aware of the wisdom that you may not have known that you possess. This may feel like slowing down today and indeed perhaps it will be but with the slowing down will come revelations that only a quiet mind can comprehend.
As spring seems to be upon us a bit early perhaps, remember that you are also part of nature and as the seasons change and shift so do you.
Today we are pulling a card from the Chakra Zodiac Healing Oracle. One of the interesting things about this oracle deck is that it speaks to the new zodiac, which adds a 13th sign.
The card we drew is Virgo; and tells us to take a step back and look at our situation with a wider view. Focusing too much on the details one may lose the bigger picture and thus overlook a solution that may actually be quite clear.
The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be
Today I draw the Hierophant from the Voyager Tarot. And this card begs to ask the question; are you taking the challenges and shadows offered to you to heart, and learning the deeper lessons that will guide you to a deeper transformation and balance?
People are afraid of what’s inside and that’s the only place they’re ever gonna find what they need.
The difficult times are not to be shied away from, but they are to be embraced fully. This is the lesson of the Hierophant this morning.
So as your path this day unfolds be aware of and embrace the shadows, challenges, and difficulties that may bring you to the next step in your evolution. Embrace them and make them the most transformative part of your day.
Today I pull one card from the Halloween Oracle to celebrate this Friday the13th.
The card I pulled is the werewolf. This speaks to us of many things; painful change, duality, and exploring our wild side.
Superstition tells us that today we play it safe, take no chances, but the werewolf speaks a different story. This is a day to explore duality and the discomfort that comes from radical change.
There’s a duality in every man and every woman.
When a black cat crosses your path today remember to stop and pet it, today is not a day to serve your superstition but today is a day to flow with joy and laughter.
We talk so much about manifesting our dreams, hopes, and desires. But what does manifestation really mean in the spiritual sense? I have found from my personal experience that manifestation can be very powerful and surprisingly so often times unexpected. The outcome meeting my desires on a broad sense, but perhaps just a little off on what I thought my intention truly was.
When calling in our guides and angels to assist us in manifestation, we must always remember to keep that sense of humor ourselves when we realize the outcome. But even more than that what I have discovered is that manifestation often times brings me the tools to create what it is that I wish, but not directly bringing in what it is that I wish. I think the thing to remember is that manifesting most often times gives us the ability and tools to create what it is we believe we wish, but at the end of the day it is still up to us to create and to do the work.
Can you understand how much Well-Being is flowing to you? Do you understand how much orchestration of circumstances and events on your behalf is available to you? Do you understand how loved you are? Do you understand how the creation of this planet, the creation of this Universe, fits together for the perfection of your experience?
Today is a day to play with manifestation. Take some time and discover what it is you wish to draw in, make intention to draw that in and perhaps even have a mantra to bring attention to what it is you desire. Pay attention during the day and see what opportunities show themselves that may lead to what it is you desire. This is certainly a great day to call in what it is that you wish and to see the surprising results.
Today I am using a new Tarot Deck. The Voyager Tarot. I am finding the symbology very deep as you may find as I interpret this morning’s reading.
Thank you Jann for this amazing Tarot Deck.
As you walk your path today, you may find that the path gets narrow. This narrower the focus will serve you well; this is not the day to be easily distracted.
Community calls to your heart, cooperation and teamwork are offered freely. This may be the perfect time to think of the bigger picture, what it is that you cannot accomplish by yourself.
The answers to what it is that you are creating may not come easily, but indeed this is one of those times where it is not the destination that is important but the journey.
Your mind may be a bit open today to the effects of those around you. This is something to be aware of especially if negativity from those around you creeps into your own thoughts.
Music and rhythm find their way into secret places of the soul
All of this leads us back to our own rhythms. What have you noticed in your own repeating pattern that brings enjoyment? What have you noticed in your own repeating pattern that has brought sorrow?
What is hidden with all of this is your opportunity to learn much about yourself and with that learning making a discovery of the fears that keep you on your own repeating pattern. Perhaps this is the time to embrace the rhythm of love and let go of the rhythm of fear.
