Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Wands

Knight Of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t be afraid to spread your wings today. It’s going to be a good and successful day. Let your light shine to brighten up those around you. They’ve been feeling very down and in the dark. Let your confidence fill your ambition and pay attention to the details that others often miss. Your self-sufficient diligence will win friends and impress superiors.


Additional Insight:

You maybe traveling on business today, either personal or professional. Spread your wings wide and know you’re being sent to the place you’re needed most. Those who cross your path, need something from you. Not money or financial burdens, but information and insight. You’ll be able to fill a void or resolve a dilemma that has been a long-standing issue.

Don’t rush through the day, there is something in it for you as well. Pay attention to what or who is around you. A knight of the realm isn’t just a fighter or protector, but also gathers information needed back home. So stay alert and listen, more than you talk. For some that might be a challenge, but it’s essential for your mission.

By this evening, you’ll be able to relax and be satisfied with a job well done. Take time to engage with your family. Someone needs to talk and have an important discussion on matters closer to home and hearth. Don’t get worried or blow the news out of proportion. It’s not serious. Just let them speak and again, make sure you’re listening more than you’re talking.

Moon Magik

Mystic Moon Wallpaper by WPNature

Working With The Moon Phases

Every magikal practitioner should know which days to work with the Moon and which days to take off. Which Moon phases are best for what kind of casting and which are for rest. These guidelines are not cast in stone and certainly if you have a friend in dire need of healing, you don’t need to wait until the next Waxing Moon to conduct a ritual. But for some of the best results, here are a few guidelines, interesting tid-bits, and helpful hints to keep in mind.

Picture the movement of the moon in terms of a clock whose hands are moving backward. The moon rests on the clock’s hour hand, Earth sits at the clock’s center. While the sun shines far off in the direction of 12 o’clock. As the moon orbits counterclockwise around Earth, its position relative to the sun and Earth changes, giving us the varied phases of the moon. Each phase of the moon lasts approximately 5 days.

Not everyone observes all 5 days as Magikal Working days. Some cultures recognize 3 days, the day before the pinnacle of the phase, the day of pinnacle and the day after. In other words, the day before a Full Moon, the day of the Full Moon and the day after. While other culture only recognize the day of the event. I’m partial to the 3 day concept. It lines up with the idea that magik is practiced in whole, as a union between the physical world and spiritual world. A better way to think of this would be in the Divine Conscious state of Mind, Body and Spirit. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knave of Cups

Knave Of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Happy go lucky is the thought of the day. Your cup is full and blooming to end the week. Time to shine a little, smile and feel the joy that’s around you. Stop looking at the lack and pay attention the abundance you have in your life. It can be a glorious weekend if you do.


Additional Insight:

There’s more to life than the pursuit of the all mighty dollar. And you can have a lot of fun in life with people and things that cost you little to nothing. Stop focusing on the stressful things you don’t have. Look at the wonderful blessings you do have. Focus on that for today and through the weekend. You’re liable to bring more of that positive energy into your life if you do.

Pay attention to the little things, because the big things don’t come around very often. Even a tragic situation can have a silver lining. Maybe you have an opportunity to go some place you’ve never been before. Maybe you have a chance to spend more time with family and friends. Or maybe you have some unexpected freedom to do nothing but take a nap, read something you’ve been wanting to learn about or perhaps you’re one who likes to get in the kitchen and prepare an extra special meal.

Whatever your thing is, do it. If not today, plan on it for this weekend. Stand among the trees and listen to them talk. They’ve seen a lot. You might hear them tell a tale of great adventure. Make your own wondrous story and you’ll be excited to share it next week to brighten someone else’s day. It’s a good weekend to clear out the negative and welcome in the positive. So be at peace and chose the happy road.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Swords

9 of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t get too tied up in the details, you’re liable to miss the benefits of being stuck where you are. You can fight against the challenge, causing harm or opening old wounds. You can ignore your instincts and end up putting yourself in a dangerous or unwanted situation. Or you can take it in stride, trusting that the Divine Universe is trying to keep you safe from harm.


Additional Insight:

Sometimes we think we have to be in a certain place (either physical or mental) in order to complete a task or focus on a project. Today the Divine Universe might be trying to keep you safe from unseen forces that can cause harm. Listen to your gut instincts and follow what it tells you. There’s a reason you’re tied to a place or situation at the moment. Go with the flow and you’ll be able to get through this struggle and reap the benefits.

Give yourself a chance to be grounded in the love and compassion that surrounds you. You don’t need to engage in the conflict or strife blowing in the breeze at every turn. Much of the anxiety is based in fear which isn’t part of your world or your domain. There’s no reason to get involved in someone else’s mess.

By this evening, it will become clear why you needed to stay put. Count your blessings, because you chose to listen to your instincts. Others may have felt they didn’t have that choice and became embroiled in a situation they would have rather avoided at all cost. Don’t gloat about your decision to listen to your own intuition. Show some kindness and compassion for those who felt pressured to push the limits and fell into the trap.

A little numerology:
Swords represent Strength & Weakness, Endurance & Struggle, Respect & Animosity. But that Nine really popped out at me today and I thought we should think about what it’s telling us too.

Nine is a spiritual number that represents the whole of something.
The Whole Nine Yards – refers to something that’s complete or full and comes from the length required to make a perfect Great Kilt.

Nine can also refer to the whole being, Mind, Body and Spirit. In some cultures, each of these aspects has its own component or group of the Mind, Body, Spirit. In other words, the Mind has the aspects of Mind, Body, Spirit within itself. In order to complete a whole or full being, you need all 9 components.

In  Shamanistic Numerology, Nine is defined as:
The number of Divinity, bringing together all forms of mind/body/spirit into one alignment.

  • This number is associated with the Universe.
  • This number is associated with the Oak Tree.
  • This number is associated with the Raven and Crow.
  • It represents the ultimate source of everything, The All, The Divine.
  • Positive Direction: When 9 is present it represents accomplishment, attaining goals or dreams, the ability to achieve influence and impact over our circumstances.
  • Negative Direction: In reverse 9 can be egotistical and arrogant. Making assumptions that everything revolves around its presence. Nothing else matters and there’s nothing else to consider if it doesn’t involve itself.

The Subtleties of Energy

How Your Thoughts Impact Your Day

I’d like to share something about energy. It seems to be a topic of conversation this week. Most everyone who works with energy in some way sees the spiritual impact of that work. You may pull energy in for healing, send it out through prayers, summon Divine energy for blessings or clearing and cleansing etc. Spiritual practitioners also connect to it in order to provide readings or interpretations for clients. In magik, we pull in energy to manipulate it to our intent and send it back out again. But do you take time to really understand how that energy impacts you, specifically, over time?

When you’re adept at working with energy, a lot of subtle energies can be picked up on and can unexpectedly impact other things in your life. That connection to a client or another person can translate and manifest in some interesting ways. Let me explain that in a little story that happened to me that can help explain where this is going for everyone, professional and layman alike.

I was asked to provide an interpretation of something for a friend. For over a week I’ve tried to fulfill that request. But odd things kept happening blocking my ability to complete that ‘mission’. Every time I sat down to start-up my laptop to type up the interpretation and send it off, our wi-fi would go out. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Wheel of Fortune

Wheel Of Fortune

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You’ve been spinning this wheel for a long time. But maybe you haven’t noticed how much has changed. Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched, but at least notice you have some chickens that can be counted. Struggle isn’t a constant position or a lifetime condition. Unless you allow it to be. Everything changes. It’s up to you to make it change for the better, instead of the worse.


Additional Insight:

Many people who have faced struggle for the past 10 years (since the beginning of the recession), are still struggling. Some have much further to go in order to recover than others have had. And they may feel as though they’ve been forgotten. The wheel is still in motion. It hasn’t stopped for anyone. Things are still changing and evolving.

How they change is totally up to you. If you’re feeling beat down and wore out, you’ll probably make things worse for yourself and those around you. Worrying about it only makes things worse and causes you to suffer twice through the challenges.  Whither it’s financial, emotional, or a health condition, what you think, say and do will dictate what you attract and bring to you.

But if you take time to recognize the changes that have already happened for the better, and appreciate the blessings that have come your way, you’re liable to continue to improve. Sometimes it’s the little things that cost you nothing that can benefit you the most. Waking up to see a snow-covered picturesque view can warm your heart and lift your spirit. Maybe it’s a funny moment with your beloved 4-legged best friend that’s the magical moment for you. Whatever it is, make note of it. Let that good feeling, however momentary it is, give you the courage to endure and move on. 

The only constant in the divine Universe, is that things change. Maybe it’s time to stop thinking that everything is going to cave in on you. Maybe it’s time to let go of that anger, fear and defeat you’ve held onto for so long. No it’s not easy. But if you can change one thing in your daily struggle to a positive, and do that every day from now on, you will change things for the better over time! You’re going to be ok!

Sorry the card was late today. We had snow over night and I had the rare occasion to sleep in.
Many Blessings

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

Knave of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You might want to keep to yourself today, to preserve your good mood. Not everyone has your best interests at heart. Many are looking for an easy buck or an unwitting mark to scam. Keep your finances and possessions close to the vest! Don’t share news or information, even with those you think you can trust. Friendships have ended over much less.


Additional Insight:

Pentacles represent the essence of Finances & Debt, Possessions & Trappings, Business & Self Interests. The reverse of today’s fae bring a warning that the darker side of these interests are in play. While you maybe feeling good about your situation, others are not sharing your emotion. So be cautious!

If you have a friend who simply can’t control their spending, tries to live a champagne life on a beer salary, or always wants what others have, that person may not be so trustworthy with knowledge of your current situation. Don’t rub it in, don’t flaunt it and for goodness sake, don’t fall for every sad story you hear! Allowing others to manipulate you over their bad choices is like opening the door to your life and letting them in to take whatever they want, when ever they want with no regards for you or your well being.

You can’t save everyone and you can’t help those who refuse to help themselves. Sometimes it’s more important to preserve your personal world and allow others to fall. For some, it’s only when they hit rock bottom that they’ll do something to turn their life around. Don’t let them drag you down with them even though it’s hard to sit by and watch what they’re going through.

Today is one of those days where you have to turn your back and walk away. The best thing you can do is let go. But get ready to be there when they’re ready to change and turn things around. When they really need a hand up, you can offer to help them stand. But the rest is up to them. It may not be easy. But these lessons aren’t your lessons to learn. Time to be strong for everyone concerned, especially yourself.
