Merry Mabon – The Feast of Avalon

mabonCelebrating The Fall Equinox

Mabon (May-bawn) is also known as the Feast of Avalon, the Festival of the Wine and the Festival of the Apple Harvest.

This year the Equinox will fall on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 4:44 PM EDT.

On the equinox, night and day are nearly exactly the same length – 12 hours – all over the world. This is the reason it’s called an “equinox”, derived from Latin, meaning “equal night”.

Today we have better methods and tools to measure astrological events. So we know that this initial accepted idea of equal hours isn’t necessarily true. In reality equinoxes don’t have exactly 12 hours of daylight. But let’s not mess the holiday with that. It’s tradition! Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Pentacles

 

5 of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t give up right before the harvest. You’ve worked hard this year! You made it through the winter by being smart. You managed to plant the garden in the spring. The summer wasn’t as bad as you thought it would be. You can’t give up right before the harvest comes in! Stop the doubts and believe in yourself!!


Additional Insight:

Stop doubting yourself! You’re letting the circumstances talk you into believing you don’t have what it takes or that your not worth the effort to reach for success. You took on the mission even when you knew it would be hard. Those around you know that was a brave thing to do. You did most of the work to get it done already. It would be a shame to throw in the towel and give up now.

You know there’s something left to be done that will carry you through and help you along the way. Others are wondering why you’re fighting so hard to ignore that task. It might be the answer to everything! And it will not have the unintended consequences you think it will have.

Get it done and hand the reigns over to the one person who you trust the most to complete that piece of your business. They’ll take the lead and allow you to work on the other things you love to do most. Together your energy will propel your project forward and you’ll get through this “down” time.

You really can do this! Believe in yourself. Others do. But you must finish what you started to make it a real success! Now stop the self loathing, the self pity and the negative self talk and get to it! Do what you’ve done in the past and align your energy with the Divine in your life. That access to the unlimited energy of creation is what you need right now. You can do this! Really you can.

The Full Moon By Name

"Merlin In The Moon" by Springwolf 🐾

“Merlin In The Moon” by Springwolf 🐾

Have you ever wondered what’s behind the name of a Full Moon? Every month the moon graces Mother Earth with her bright Full phase. And occasionally she’ll pop in a second full phase in a single month too.

We know those occasional double full moons in a single month as a Blue Moon. But every full moon has its own name as well. You may have seen some people refer to the September’s full moon as the Harvest Moon, or the Fruit Moon. You might have even seen it called the Corn Moon. So which is it?

Well, it’s all of them really. As with most things, there isn’t a single definitive set of names to correspond to the full moon world wide. There are many.

Ages ago, cultures around the world kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full moon. So there are a multitude of corresponding names to each Full moon of a single month. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven Of Cups – Inverted

Seven of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be careful how far you tip your bucket to scoop up the things around you. You might find that you’re loosing more than you’re gaining. Take what’s owed to you and no more. The net of greed can easily pull you down and drown you in its depths.


Additional Insight:

There’s nothing wrong with wanting a good life. The Divine force you have in your life doesn’t want you to struggle and face hardship every moment of your existence. But there’s a difference between living well and constantly taking more than you’re due.

Even if you have not attained that materialistic life you dream of, be careful about what you’re willing to do in order to get it. Don’t compromise your principles. Don’t ignore your inner voice or focus on getting what you want at all costs. Forsaking your values, your family or your reputation will not gain you what you really seek to have.

Greed is an ugly trait to possess. It can cloud your judgement and lead you down a path of darkness and no return. Be careful who you align your mission with to obtain the material things you desire. You might find the price they require you to pay is more than you’re willing to give. And you might find out when it’s too late to say “no”.

Don’t think you can balance out the greed of the material things with giving donations of compassion. Anyone can write a check when they have the extra finances. It takes little effort and it’s an impersonal gesture that really has little value in the cosmic scheme of things.

Take some time today to remember what’s really important in your life. The love of family, the companionship of friends and the joy of simple pleasures have more value than all the material things in the world. Be thankful for those things you do have and remember to share them with those around you with compassion and gratitude. You may discover you’re much richer than the person you see in the 1% of our society.

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

10 of Wands - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft


You can’t keep others quiet so be very careful with who you trust your secrets to. Some people aren’t as much of a friend to you as you think they are. And others would rather be “respected” as the town crier who knows everything. Don’t be a pawn in their games and choose your friends wisely.


Additional Insight:

This weeks messages seem to revolve around communication. Be careful how and with who you’re communicating with.

Respect is earned, not given. Make sure those you are talking to have earned your respect enough to tell them your secrets. Some “friends” are less confidants than they are acquaintances. They would much prefer to be the “go to” person for news in town than the person who could be trusted with a secret.

Make sure you’re sharing your secret to share in a celebration and not to brag, or gloat. Make sure your secret isn’t news that someone else shared with you.

Trust is somewhat a lost art in our busy social media world today. It’s a trait that deserves a great deal of respect when it’s earned. Ask yourself why are others surprised when they finally hear news that you’ve known for months. Do they have such a low opinion of you? Or do they expect you to be like everyone else and betray the confidence that was given to you so easily?

You may find that you get much further in your mission, your goals and your position by being someone who can be trusted. It’s an honorable title to wear and it’s even more humbling when others trust you with private information, because they have to tell someone or they’ll bust. Not only may you be the first to know! But you could also be the first to help them celebrate. How kewl is that?!

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

10 of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft


Don’t let the potential of getting hurt, keep you from opening your heart to love. Instead take a look within yourself and find what’s causing you to make bad choices? You might find that the issue is with your own thinking about what you deserve or can achieve.


Additional Insight:

We attract what we think and that includes what we think we deserve. Often times the cycle of bad relationships is nothing more than a reflection of how we view ourselves. When we see ourselves as lacking, not being good enough, being a bother, a handful or troublesome, we attract people with those traits and they always let us down.

The cycle creates a pattern and over time it alters our view we have of ourselves. We begin to believe that we don’t deserve the good life, or the good relationship we see others around us having. All that negative self talk attracts the exact opposite of what we want.

There’s no such thing as the perfect, always happy, always harmonious relationship. The truth is, people argue. How you argue and what you argue about is what makes the difference in making it work. Whither it’s your young and facing your first serious relationship, or it’s later in life and you’re going through changes and reflection, everyone has baggage to carry. Don’t put your issues on someone else’s shoulders and expect them to know how to deal with you by osmosis. You can’t read their mind, don’t expect them to be able to read yours either.

Relationships take work and effort to last.  Dreaming about the perfect relationship is great, but only if you stop the negative talk within and work on your own baggage. No matter what you think your problems are, you are the one in control of them. If you don’t like something about yourself, then change it.

No matter what it is, you can find a way to make positive changes and become the person you’re looking to love. Love yourself and others will see what you have to offer that’s worth loving and worth partnering with to create the “perfect” relationship.

Sympathies & Prayers

Our Deepest Sympathies & Prayers ~ by Springwolf

Our Deepest Sympathies & Prayers

Our Thoughts For Those At The Navy Yard, Washington, DC

Everyone from my family and at Spring’s Haven send our thoughts and prayers to all those involved in today’s tragic shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, DC.  We hold all those who work in and around the area, their families and friends in our hearts.

Washington DC is in our backyard. It’s a place that’s home to me as I grew up outside DC in Northern Virginia inside the Capital Beltway. One cannot live in this area without knowing someone who works for the Government, Government Contractors or who are in the Military. It makes our area feel like a small community and when something happens, it happens to us all.

May the Great Spirits watch over the victims and those injured,
May the families and friends of those lost, find strength to endure.
May all first responders remain safe and clear in their mission,
May everyone find compassion for those in this community,
including the disturbed young man, his family and friends.

We send our thoughts, prayers, healing and sympathies with compassion and kindness.
~ Springwolf  🐾

We hope today’s event will bring clarity to America and it’s citizens to open meaningful discussion about the gun violence in our country.

We believe in our Constitution and our 2nd Amendment rights. Gun laws alone will not stop these events, or keep them from happening again. But we must stop yelling at each other and start finding the common ground from which we can build meaningful solutions to end the senseless violence that plagues our wonderful and blessed country.

09/16 Our Topic: America’s Stonehenge: Mystery Hill, New Hampshire.
North of Salem N.H. lies one of the oldest man made structures in the Americas. A maze of chambers, enclosures, niches, walls, stoned lined drains, carved grooves and basins creating a small village that covers about one acre on the summit of the hill. Though not a true “henge” the stone village was built around the same time frame as its famous namesake in the U.K.

America’s “Stonehenge” – Mystery Hill, N.H.

Carbon dating places the age of some artifacts as old a 7,000 years ago, while some are as new as 200 years ago. So who built this stone community that has been utilized by various cultures over thousands of years?

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Six of Swords

Six of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Sometimes it’s ok to look back and see how far you’ve come. Be proud of your accomplishments and let them overshadow your failures. You’ve worked hard, done much, made changes and improved your spirit far beyond what you’re allowing yourself to see.


Additional Insight:

Looking back isn’t a bad thing if you use it as a gauge for where you are today. You have worked hard and put a lot of energy into recreating you and your life. Take a moment to see what you’ve accomplished and how far you come.

Don’t dwell on the mistakes or the things that didn’t go right. Instead learn from those things and allow them to teach you for the future. Dwelling on the past puts thorns under your feet and blocks the way forward. Or worse sets an anchor that holds you back from your path.

You deserve to be proud of where you are and how far you’ve come. You deserve to feel good about where you are today compared to the past. And you deserve the happiness and the success you’ve been striving for.

So don’t let the nay-sayers or the unhappy people from the past try to keep you where they are. It’s not your place to grovel with them so they feel better about where they are. They’re afraid of letting you go, because it means they have to look in the mirror and see how far they are from making changes in their own life.

Allow yourself to be happy and stop judging your path by someone else’s standards. You know how much work you’ve done. You know how much you’ve changed. You know how hard it has been and the amount of energy it took to do it. Live by your own standards and be proud of where you are and how much you’ve accomplished.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Fool

 

The Fool

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t go bowling with your insight and hope you hit the right pins. Pay attention to your concentration and focus. Don’t take your own intuition for granted, it’s trying to tell you something important. It might be exactly what you need to avoid being the fool, today and through the weekend.


Additional Insight:

Having good intuition is something every living animal needs and possesses. When you treat it like a parlor trick to impress others or in attempts to gain control over others, it can easily backfire on you over time.

If you dismiss it and ignore what your gut is trying to highlight, you could make choices that adversely impact your day, weekend, year and maybe even your entire life.

Our instincts are both our first line of defense and helps us to play offense and take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Only a fool would ignore the gut feelings they have, especially when they know deep down something isn’t right or is about to happen, good, bad or indifferent.

It seems we’re often open to the negative and feel that instinct the strongest. But if you pay attention to your gut feelings about people you meet, situations you find yourself in or events that are building up around you, you can discern the best course of action for yourself. No matter what your gut feeling says to you, listen to it, mark it in your mind and hold it until something proves it wrong, or confirms your feeling. Perhaps you’ll be able to put yourself in the right place at the right time and achieve the success you’ve been working so hard to achieve.
