Decoration Day
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day.

Regardless of the exact date or location of its origins, one thing is clear – Memorial Day was borne out of the Civil War and a desire to honor our dead. It was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11. “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land,” he proclaimed.

The date of Decoration Day, as he called it, was chosen because it wasn’t the anniversary of any particular battle.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ten of Swords – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Ten of Swords Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

The day you create will all depend on your perspective. Are you open to celebration or are you gearing up for a fight. How you look at the world in each moment of the day creates energy that surrounds you and binds you to that instant of creation. Stop seeing things as half empty or dwelling on how much further there is to go. Start seeing the gifts you have in front of you, in your hands and standing beside you. Your blessings are already present in the here and now. When you focus on the abundance you already have, you attract more prosperity to the areas of your life that might be lacking.


Additional Insight:

Do you see a fallen warrior? A slain victim? Or a resting soul being lifted by the light of a candelabra? How you view the situations in your life is not only telling of current psyche, but it also represents the energy you’re creating around you.

You can create the world you want to live in by changing your perspectives and leaving the storm clouds behind. But even in the midst of a storm there is beauty to be seen and gifts to be appreciated. For a farmer, the rain brings much-needed water for the fields. For the photographer, the lightning brings astonishment to captured. For the artist the moving clouds are natures beauty moving in concert with the wind.

We may lose “things” during the storms of our life. But they’re only things. The intangible gifts are what’s most important no matter where you are or who you are. Money can sustain your life, but it can’t buy love, or family or trust or bravery. No matter what you think you’re lacking at this time in your life, if you have family and friends you are rich. If you have children you are rich beyond measure. And when you stand tall with them and face the storms together, you are brave and blessed to have such companions to weather the struggles.

The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision
of what is before them, glory and danger alike,
and yet notwithstanding,
go out to meet it.
Thucydides (c. 460 BC – c. 400 BC)

Stop looking at what you don’t have and start focusing on what you do have. The tallest building cannot stand when it’s not built on a solid foundation. The same is true with living life. If you don’t have the foundation of family and friends, or someone to share your accomplishments with, your success won’t last and won’t have value.

Change your perspective and value the people not the product. Value the mission and not the trophy at the end of the journey. Value yourself and you will attract the positive energy of the Divine Universe to you, along with the compassion and caring of those around you. Success isn’t something you take with you when you leave this Earthly existence. Unless it’s the success of loving family and friends that you’ll carry with you from lifetime to lifetime.

Additional Insight:

There will be no drawing for the week of May 25th to the 29th
Happy Memorial Day!
We give our thanks and gratitude to all of
the Men and Women of Armed Forces!
And their families!!
Past, Present and Future.
Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Two of Pentacles

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Two of Pentacles

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

A journey tonight could be a prosperous adventure. Don’t worry about juggling tasks or being overwhelmed. Your prosperity is coming at the end of the rainbow and things are looking up. Stay focused though and keep to the business at hand. With storm clouds at your back, the worst is over and your ship will make it to port in calm waters. Hang in there. You’ll make it through.


Additional Insight:

Water is the symbol of creation, passion, and even sexuality. It is the element that all life requires to survive. It represents new dimensions and natural forces moving with the flow when calm. And struggling against the world when in storm.

If you have the opportunity to get out into the water today, you’re Mind/Body/Spirit will benefit from its soothing relaxation. You’ll be able to clear blocks and imagine (or thing through) problems and issues with a new perspective from creative energy.

If you can’t get out into a large pool of water, try taking a bubble bath and allow yourself to relax at home. Even a warm soothing shower will have its benefits to wash away anxiety and trepidation. Take some time to feel yourself in the water. Be mindful of the sensations against your skin, the warmth, the movement and the nurturing affects.

This evening be open to new ideas and suggestions that can be molded into successful ventures. There are some good ideas coming your way that resolve issues and bring about positive change. Allow yourself to engage in conversation, add your view and opinion in a meaningful positive way. Don’t focus on the problems or the issues that may present themselves in a solution. Rather point out the potential outcomes and have a solution to fix it as well. Don’t be the doubter, be the one with the solutions.

What you start this evening, will come to fruition by Monday. Don’t get impatient and rush through the mission. You could miss something along the adventure that you’re going to need in the end. And you might also push things away with your rushing tide. Instead, be calm, be patient. Let the tide take you at its own pace and you’ll discover your ship has come in, in its right time, in the right space and in the right place.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Pentacles – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Seven of Pentacles : Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Abundance can grow on trees when you nurture your passion and feed your dreams. Stop looking for the rotten apples and focus on the positives. Change your pattern of negative self talk and believe in the Magik within you. 


Additional Insight:

The more you listen to the negative recordings the more you throw the good out with the bad. It not only wastes the abundance you do have, it keeps you from attaining the dream you ultimately want, or need.

Stop taking things for granted and start appreciating all the little things that bring blessings to your life. They really do add up after a while. And you can use their positive energy to attract more of their kind to you. Even that elusive dream you think is out of reach. That thought is the only thing keeping you from achieving it.

Allow yourself to dream. Dream big. Dream often. Let your dreams inspire you to try, to innovate, to adapt situations so they benefit your goals and aspirations. Overcome the negative recordings you’ve allowed into your head and replace them with the knowledge that you too deserve to succeed and win the day.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Six of Wands – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Six of Wands : Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

You may need some help getting your information to the right people or through the right channels. Pay attention to the body language and hand signals; along with the words. Don’t make assumptions that you’re not speaking clearly, or that others aren’t taking time to listen. Mercury is in retrograde and communications are being impacted on all sides. Allow yourself to feel empowered in your situation. No matter how great or small. Believe in yourself and be humble as you try to explain your position throughout the week. You’ll be ok by Friday, even though this retrograde lasts until June 11, 2015..


Additional Insight:

While you’re having problems making the right connections, keep calm and patient. Be Mindful of the energy you’re sending out. Otherwise you could make things worse than they need to be.

Patience and humility will get you through this first week of the Mercury Retrograde when its influence is at it’s most influential. Don’t assume you’re speaking clearly or that everything you’re saying is plain and clear. It may not be that others aren’t listening, but rather that you’re not as clear in your communication as you think you are.

Keep in mind that when the Retrograde occurs in the house of Gemini (as it is in this phase) miscommunications will be enhanced more acutely. That’s because Gemini is the house of Communications. Calls will be dropped, connections will be lost, external noise will interfere. You might even find yourself losing your voice entirely due a sudden illness (that’s hitting me right now).

As with all things, there’s both negative and positive energy at work. Don’t focus on the negative. If you keep your patience and compassion intact you’ll be able to find the humor in frustrating situations. Instead of assuming you heard something in error, repeat what you thought you heard as a question and you could discover a good moment of laughter shared. After all there’s a difference between “I might find a linking toad in the dark” and “the light is blinking in the car park”.

Simply keep calm, approach the next few days with humor and don’t spread rumor or gossip that you “think” you heard. You’re liable to be totally wrong because you didn’t really hear what you thought was really said. Take each conversation as a new opportunity to build your network of contacts for business or friendship. Be open to reconnecting with old friends. And don’t try to read between the lines when no one calls at all. You’re not the only one having problems with communication avenues this week.

After Friday things will get a little easier, but the misunderstandings will still be present. So be humble in your approach to conversations. Don’t read too much into the confusion going on. Fall back on your ability to read body language, hand gestures and all the little things we do to add to our communications. You’ll be able to tell when someone is getting overly frustrated and angry; and when to help others relax, slow down and get their point across. In fact, you could come out way ahead of the game because you know what’s going on and can’t help others keep calm and cool over the next 4 weeks. Good luck.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Chariot

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - The Chariot - VII

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Expand your horizons and view the world from a larger perspective. Too much of your understanding is based on only what’s around you. Living inside the bubble warps your view as if you’re in a fog. It’s not until you rise above and clear the air that you’re going to be able to see both sides of the situation and discover what’s really going on. You don’t have to agree with both sides. But at least be open to the alternative views, because they will provide insight, understanding and an opportunity to question. The more you know, the more you’ll understand the world around you.


Additional Insight:

It’s a product of our nature to live within our community, family, or whatever that tight knit group is that you feel comfortable in. Humans are like any herding animal, we move with our pack and rarely venture outside to discover new perspectives.

But staying inside our own bubble,  limits our understanding of neighboring clans, or communities that we share space with. We may not agree with their views, or understand where they’re coming from, or know enough about them out side of rumor or innuendo.

Building peace in your family or your community takes a little effort and patience to learn about the other side. You don’t have to agree, you’re not going to be converted nor should you allow your fear to segregate you from knowledge and understanding.

Move your Chariot today and look at your world from a different angle or place. Get out of the smoke others have been spreading to keep you from seeing the larger picture. There are reasons they don’t want you to expand your knowledge. It puts their position to manipulate and control you on shaky ground. Then where will they be?

Above all else your biggest lesson is learning and living in balance with all things. If you have only one side of a story, how are you going to balance the concepts and wisdom of that person, people, place or thing? Spend the day moving your Chariot to the other side of the room and look at things with a different perspective. It really does work and allows you to see things right in front of you, that you never noticed from the other side.

Pick a topic close to home and begin a little self research. Try to discover both sides of the debate and allow your own curiosity and skepticism to ask questions. The more you learn, the more you help the world find peace and understanding through tolerance and clarity.
