The first part of the battle has been won. Be cautious if the four issues that result from this victory. Things are working in your favor and it’s not all as bad as you may think. But it’s not a triumph either. There’s still a war going on and you still need to keep your wits about you. But for today, relax and enjoy the victory. You deserve it.
It’s been a long fought battle, but you’ve finally accomplished the victory. With every battle there are consequences that result from winning. So you still have issues to watch out for and be cautious about. But for now, enjoy some down time, relax over the weekend and thank those who have helped you get through the first part of the war. You’re going to need their help in the coming months. But be at peace in knowing you have tackled and overcome the biggest and hardest part of the conflict. Things will be much easier to handle from here on out.
Every culture has some folklore about nature spirits, sprites, faeries and a like. The Norse were big on these nature helpers. Celtic mythology is filled with story and legend of sprites, faeries and the infamous leprechauns. You can find them in practically all Native American cultures from the far north to the far south. So it’s not hard to find others who not only believe in these spirits, but who have encountered them as well.
You can find signs of faeries and sprites all the time if you look for them. Sprites are known to leave circular decorations through a forest. If you see vines that seem to be molded in a wheel for instance, sprites have been there. Look in your own yard for faery rings, these are mushroom circles that have been left by dancing faeries.
Today the sprites I hear people ask about the most are Garden sprites or faeries. How to attract them and get them to help care for the garden to promote growth and keep harmful bugs away. Continue reading →
Let your balloons soar today. The balance you’ve brought forth will take you to new heights and accolades. Those who are blinded by anger will be left behind. Leave them with their stake in the ground. Even though you want to help, they will not listen. So let them go and float away to in peace, knowing you’ve done all you can.
Sometimes going with the flow and allowing the Divine Spirit take you where it may, brings you to the place you’re supposed to be. Others are trying to keep you anchored in the past with their anger and refusal to move on. You can no longer help them, so let them go. It maybe hard to do, but they’ve made their choices and you can’t fix things for them. Consider your own path and what you need to accomplish. You’re worth the effort and the time, so focus on you.
Tending to your soul is equally as important as attending to your physical garden. You don’t need to hang up side down, or flip on what’s important today vs tomorrow. Bring healthy abundance back into your life in mind, body and spirit by simply taking a moment to center your thoughts and energies each morning. You will discover clarity and how to use your whole self to address obstacles and take advantage of opportunities more easily.
Tend to your spirit and it will tend to you. If you’re feeling drained, weighted down, stuck in the muck and mud, then it maybe because you’re overly grounded in the mundane tasks of the physical world. Tending to spirit helps center your energies, uplift your soul and brings everything back into focus.
It doesn’t take much effort to raise your energies and balance your physical/spiritual natures. Simply close your eyes, imagine a silver spear of light forming at your solar plexus (where the rib cage meets at the bottom). See this silver spear traveling up your spine, out your head, through the ceiling, clouds and deep into the Universe. Imagine a while light attaching itself to your spear like 1000s of branches of a tree. See white and pure pink light merging between the tree limbs and your spear as it travels down the shaft back to you. See this light energy gently entering your body and filling it with love and compassion, lifting you out of the nitty gritty and above the fray.
Go back to your solar plexus and imagine another spear, traveling down your spine, through the bedrock and molten lava of Mother Earth. See this spear plugging into the white center of the world like an electric cord plugging into an outlet. Now see the gold light of protection and vitality moving up your spear until it gently enters your body at the base of your spine. See it move to your solar plexus and imagine it spreading out filling your physical body.
Hold this image of the white, pink, and gold energies gently swirling around within your physical body. each separate, but each working together to bring balance into your being. Hold this image for about 3 to 5 minutes and feel yourself being balanced between your two natures.
When you’re ready, open your eyes and go about your day with a renewed sense of empowerment. Look at the obstacles that cross your path from your higher spiritual vision and you will be able to easily see the solutions. Accept new contacts and events that cross your path with joy and confidence and you’ll be able to see the opportunities that come your way.
It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes 2 cards get pulled instead of one. Today was one of those days.
Six of Pentacles – Inverted
Watch your finances this week. Now is not the time to splurge on new things. Save what you can and look for ways to reuse and recycle. Though your provisions are getting low, don’t worry.Things will turn around by Monday.
Things may not have come through as expected, but don’t worry. It’s simply a short delay. But take care and don’t spend unless you absolutely have to. The new shoes, or the lunch out with friends can wait till next week. Today, lay low, conserve where and when you can and you’ll skate through the week with ease.

Ten of Pentacles –
A gift will come your way bringing security for all. Though it may take about 10 days to come through, you’ll be able to relax and rejoice. Take it easy on the celebration however. You still have finances to manage with the approach of being conservative.
Taking care of yourself is important and required so that you can take care of others you care about. Don’t put everyone else first, until you set plans in motion to establish your own security first. Be it health, home or finances; this is one time that putting yourself first is important for the long haul.
Spend time in thought and searching within. What is it you really want. You’re spending so much time on what you need, that you’ve taken time away from your spiritual dreams and inner inspiration. Dreaming is part of life and helps us to reach for the stars and work toward goals that bring fulfillment and joy. Look within and ask your higher self, what is it that I want to achieve. Knowing is the first step to getting there.
Dreaming in balance with reality is ok as long as you don’t waste your time dreaming all day. Dreams give us inspiration and help us to reach for goals that we might other wise not think of. But as with all things, keeping the dreams in balance with reality is important. That means putting work and effort into achieving your dreams and bringing them into manifestation. Dream big! Reach for the stars! You’ll never get there if you don’t at least look up to the sky.
When you put patterns into your life to live your beliefs, they become part of you, part of who you are and what you are. Many people talk the talk of being a spiritual being. Some put their beliefs into practice once a week, or only when they’re conducting rituals. Many forget that walking a spiritual path means walking it every moment of your life. It’s not enough to give it lip service to impress your friends, or give yourself a false sense of “living right”. It means “Walking Your Talk”.
We do a lot of talking around here about the Divine, working with the GreatSpirits, God or a Goddess, but how often do you remember that these terms are not restricted to your spiritual practices, but rather part of your very being and life? Here in this article we’re going to talk about the Divine in a more practical sense of how you and the Divine are connected. How you practice your beliefs on a daily basis and why this is important for any spiritual being. Continue reading →
