Be confident, but be patient. Things are moving along quite nicely and at the right pace to get you through the harvest. Keep a watchful eye over you domain and be ready for the opportunities as they arise. But don’t try to rush things. You’re not quite ready yet.

Additional Insight:

Today and through the weekend spend a little time relaxing. Things have been taken care of for the month and you’re ahead of the game for next month. So this is the perfect weekend to relax and be mellow.

Go out on an adventure, but watch your spending. Don’t splurge or spend more than you have in your budget. Find some of the community end of the summer events to enjoy. Ride a ferris wheel, visit a park or go for a country drive.

Spend time with your family and friends being sociable. Laugh and play through the weekend and you’ll re-energize your batteries. As well as, ease your mind of the worry you’ve been carrying this week.

Set a side some time for some spiritual attention too. It’s a great weekend to bathe in the light of the Full Moon and cleanse your space, both your body and home. Clear out the old clutter, the negative thoughts and the nagging nay-sayer recordings. Replace all that stuff that holds you back with positive energy and affirmations. Continue reading

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

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Don’t hide your passion so much that no one knows what you’re really working toward. You won’t get any support if you’re expecting others to simply know by osmosis what you want in life. Don’t be afraid to be who you are and allow your magik to come out and grow. It’s ok to be an inspiration to others.

Additional Insight:

Wallowing in self-pity isn’t the answer to your problem. You’re expecting others to read your mind and simply know what you want or need. It doesn’t work that way. Not even in the best relationships can people read each others minds. You can’t read theirs, don’t expect them to read yours.

And no, leaving hints aren’t going to get it done either. Not everyone is good at picking up on the subtle comments about what you like or wish you could do. Not in this day and age where every moment of someone’s time includes their face in a digital device. So don’t assume the one you care about is paying full-time and attention to you. You’re not paying attention to them, so what do you expect?

If you want others to be part of your dream or goal then simply ask them to be. It’s not hard. It’s called communication. Don’t text, don’t write a blog post or a post on your FB page, or whatever. Actually look them in the eye and ask for some of their time. Turn off the phone or tablet or both and talk. Continue reading

Facebook’s Discrimination of Pagans – Update



One Win For The Pagan Side!

Back on August 20th I shared news about the Facebook name policy targeting Pagan names and causing havoc for those members.

Here’s a short recap:
Facebook has made a policy that allows any user to report another member because they do not like their name or think the name is being used to bullying others or is fake. However this policy is being used as a weapon by cyber bullies and religious terrorists to harass and intimidate minorities. This happened to me this week.

All it takes is for someone who doesn’t like you, your name or the content of your page to send Facebook a report about your displayed name making an accusation that it’s fake and your account is suspended. No double checking, no review of your page or content, no contacting you first. Your account is suspended until you can prove you are who you say you are.

According to the Facebook Name Confirmation policy:
Two different forms of ID from the list below. The names on your IDs must match each other. One of the IDs must include a photo OR date of birth that matches the information on your Facebook profile so that we can make sure you’re the rightful owner of your account.

The list includes about 15 or so forms of ID that can be provided. So you have a lot to choose from. You need to include a government issued ID. And I wasn’t about to give FB more private information about me than they already have. So an “official” ID wasn’t going to happen. It shouldn’t have to happen! Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Judgement

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Judgement XX

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Reserve judgement before you toot your horn. You might be accurate, but you don’t need to rub it in or degrade others. Allow your inner light to show compassion with your reason. Your status will grow with the return of respect and admiration for the way you argued the case.

Additional Insight:

You might have insight into a situation that others don’t have. But you don’t need to be arrogant or condescending about it. That will only push others off and cause more confrontation than there needs to be. You may not have the whole story either. So even if you think you’re sure about the situation, don’t rub it in or gloat.

Your perspective maybe well founded, but others look up to your views. The last thing you want to do is cause someone to lash out at someone or something that doesn’t warrant the response. You certainly don’t want to look like the person whose “holier than though” attitude instigated a response that causes harm.

Keep your rhetoric calm and factual. Don’t sensationalize or spin your tale in a way that riles emotions in your favor,  or against you either. By the end of the day, your impressions will pan out and once again you’ll have the opportunity to be admired. Getting noticed isn’t a bad thing in this case. But only if you reserve your words and actions, control your emotions and live by your own standards.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Sun

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - The Sun XIX

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

What goes around, comes around. Be careful how you use your words and respond to others today. They’re trying to bait you into a confrontation. Rise above and maintain your self respect. Stick to the facts, don’t make assumptions and use your wisdom to correct misconceptions. But don’t fight with those who are too blind to see. Live in your light and enjoy the day.

Additional Insight:

There are those who will cross your path and be angry at the world. It’s not your fault they got up on the wrong side of the bed. But don’t let them goad you into a fight that’s not of your making in the first place. Their fear and anxiety is theirs to carry and you can’t fix things for them.

Today is a good day to do your own thing. Get outside and recharge your batteries. Take a walk, sit in the sun and drink some tea, balance your energies. The Universe will spin with or without your personal interpretation. So allow others to spin their wheels and fall into the darkness of their own fear. You won’t save them by arguing. And you don’t need to fall into the pit with them.

Nor will you help through unsolicited advice. Remember that wisdom is attained through knowledge and experience. Don’t assume you’re the only person who’s been through “that” or gone through “this” and come out the other side. Sometimes people simply want to complain and “get it out”. They don’t want you to solve the problem or tell them what to do. They’ve probably already done all that anyway. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Swords

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Nine of Swords

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

You can focus on patterns of strength, or patterns of anger. The choice is up to you. Strength will bring virtues that get you through the dark times and always keep you in the light. Anger will only weaken you and constantly keep you in harm’s way and under attack. The pattern you chose today will set up the rest of the year. Make sure you select the right path to move toward a prosperous future.

Additional Insight:

You don’t need to hide and worry yourself through the night in trepidation for what may never happen. With experience comes wisdom and the knowledge that fear is destructive and useless. Stop focusing on what you might lose, or what you may not have and focus on your strengths.

Use your tenacity to build a pattern of endurance, fortitude and stability. These things will allow you to see through the blocks that both you and others put before you. You’ll find the weakness in their argument, the weak link in their actions and you will be the one who gets through the fray.

Swords represent Strength & Weakness, Endurance & Struggle, Respect & Animosity. You have the Strength, you know you’ve acquired the Endurance. Now it’s time to Respect yourself and let go of the animosity, guilt, self loathing or whatever adjective that fits your perspective of self. Whatever it is you have left of the negative perceptions when you look in the mirror; time to let go and move on. Continue reading
