“You May Saaaayy I’m a Dreamer…

But I’m not the only one. I hope some daaaayyy you will join us, and the worrrrlld will be as one.”  –John Lennon

Well, Mr. Lennon, I believe I’ve experienced a small glimmer of what that feels like; what that world could be like.

I have the blessing of talking with people all over the world through tarot. I recently received a gift of friendship with a girl from India. In speaking with her about what she wanted insight with, it became so clear to me how connected we all are. We all want the same things. No matter what religion, ethnicity, background, etc.

I just hope we get this all figured out soon. Not just for the planet’s sake, but for us. We miss out on so much when we shut others out because we think they aren’t like us.

My friend Dhruti in India sent me this video as a “thank you” for her reading. She wanted to cook for me, but that distance thing…

Air Signs: Aquarius-Gemini-Libra

This week we may notice the energy of the Tower; a fiery energy that often clears something away to make way for something new, better. When it strikes, it’s often a shock to the system–unexpected. We may feel the foundation has crumbled. Although this event may not happen to us personally, it may affect us nonetheless.

Regardless, when we find ourselves affected by the energy of the Tower and it seems as though this cycle will never end, it may be that a lesson hasn’t been fully learned. “Round and Round” challenges us to revisit a pattern with a new perspective to overcome the cycle.

When we feel like we never get ahead and negative cycles repeat themselves over and over, remember that this time we have a bird’s eye view. Although things appear to be falling apart, we stand above the tower. We have an opportunity to learn something and do something different and better this time.

“Lend A Hand” reminds us that sometimes the only way we can get past negative things happening in our own lives or the lives of people we care about is to remove the focus from ourselves and focus on others.

Where can we be of service to others? Where is there a struggle we might help alleviate? How can we empower others and lift up their spirit without just rescuing?

Water Signs:  Pisces-Cancer-Scorpio

This week’s energy is all about relationships. The Two of Cups is in reverse. Cups represent water and the fluidity of emotions. With these cups being upside down, we need to take a look at our relationships with friends, co-workers and partners. Is there something we may have said without thinking? Did we react too quickly?

“Speak With Love” reminds us that when we allow our egos to speak carelessly, we can really stir up the emotional waters of others. We need to remember that this vibration returns to its source with a vengeance. When this energy comes up, it’s time to become aware of the effect our words have on others. Are we creating fear or peace?  We are being called this week to take a look at the impact our words have on others.

“Blessed” comes up in the protection position reminding us to be humble. Blessings are received when we surrender to God/Spirit.

Earth Signs: Taurus-Virgo-Capricorn

Earth  signs may feel a little blah as if the Sun isn’t shining for us. We may lose sight that we are all connected and part of a divine plan. Earth signs are especially sensitive to the lack of sunshine. They may even experience Seasonal Affective Disorder, becoming a little depressed when sunshine is lacking.

But, when fisherman can’t go to sea, they stay home and repair their nets. “To The Sea” in the protection position reminds us that when things don’t seem to move forward, we should go with the flow. We need to stop resisting and relax and trust in divine timing. Everything is a cycle. The Sun will shine again.

Two oracle cards wanted to come out for the Earth  Signs. “Regeneration” tells us that we are in a cycle of rebirth. We may see new opportunities or second chances appear this week. Seeds that appeared dormant may show signs of growth. This week it may become apparent to us just how illusory death and endings really are.

We are also reminded this week to “Talk to God.” Quiet the ego and listen to God/Spirit. It’s only the ego that causes problems. Stop talking to ego and talk to God. This is where you will find answers.

Fire Signs: Aries-Leo-Sagittarius

Strength may be called upon this week. We may be struggling with our persona–the self we show to the world and the Spirit of who we really are. It takes strength to put ourselves out there, be vulnerable and become comfortable with our authentic self. E.L. Cummings wrote, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”

However, opportunities are born out of authenticity. “Milk And Honey” asks us to trust that our needs will be met. This energy reflects a sweet time in our life.  This only happens when we are in our authentic zone. You may experience a taste of what you want this week and find it easier to show the world who you really are.

“Seek an Expert” if you feel you’ve reached a limit of your own expertise. Now that you’re becoming more comfortable with the real you, you may need some help or guidance on how you can put this plan into action. You may be contemplating going back to school, a different career path, etc. Don’t be afraid to ask for a little advice. Seek out mentors.

Readings prepared using Robert Wang’s, “The Jungian Tarot,” Sonia Choquette’s “The Answer is Simple” oracle cards and Colette Baron-Reid’s oracle cards, “Wisdom of the Oracle.”

Hunter Moon~ October 15, 2016

hunter-moonproof

Hunters could easily spot animals such a wild boar, rabbits and deer which are nocturnal in nature, by the light of this bright moon. Thus, the “Hunter Moon.”

The Hunter Moon is the full moon directly following the Harvest Moon. How appropriate then to take a look at Little Red Tarot’s Full Moon Spread using  Leeza Robertson’s deck, “Animal Totem” for guidance during this upcoming Super Moon.

So, to the left of the Death Card in the center, we have (1) The Sun, (2) King of Wands in Reverse and (3)The Moon in reverse. All represent the waning moon.

The Sun reflects what we need to let go of–our egos? It asks us to meditate and realize all is connected.

The King of Wands in reverse reminds us to reclaim and keep our power, our enthusiasm, our passion.

Things yet to come is represented by the Moon in reverse. This asks us to to be cautious and realize that some things are not what they appear to be at first glance. In fact, we may not be able to see all things clearly in the moonlight. Use caution in the upcoming future.

To the far right we have the waxing moon–how the world affects us, what to give and what to receive.

The Devil in reverse reminds us to not get too caught up in worldly matters–matters of the flesh. We are in the world, but we don’t have to be of the world.

Judgment in the reverse position of what to give indicates an energy of forgiveness. Everyone is on their own path. It takes everyone working together to make it all work. Show compassion, mercy.

The Three of Swords indicates we should receive or allow to receive a new perspective or forward way of thinking. We should be open to looking at situations from other points of view.

Finally, what we are to learn, in the 7th position (center), is Death. We must learn to die of ourselves in order to become new. Ego must die away to make room for Spirit,the essence of who we really are.

We see what we’re meant to see.

I recently visited John James Audobon State Park in Kentucky. Looking forward to a relaxed weekend in nature, I expected to see all types of birds and wildlife.

Although I didn’t see any unusual birds, I did see what I was meant to see. It’s easy to miss what is around you, sometimes right in front of you, if you focus only on your expectations.

I expected to see wildlife, but what I saw was so much better and meant especially for me. Until I saw the acorns, I had forgotten all about the stories my mother had told me when I was very young . I remember her  cupping the acorns in her hands and explaining to me how the acorns were really fairy dishes.

I would have missed out on this memory of my mother if I had not looked at what was right in front of me and focused only on what I thought I wanted  to see.

Message for World Animal Day/Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.

 

oct4

October 4th is World Animal Day, an international day of action for animal rights and welfare. It’s also the feast day of  St.Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.

How can we take action in convincing others of the immediacy of conserving our natural resources, caring for our earth, animals and nature?  Progress is  slow.

Mother Earth is not happy.
