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

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft


Stop poking holes in everything. There are some good ideas out there and you might want to listen to a few. You’re not the only one who can come up with solutions to the problem. No idea is perfect. If you’re going to play Devils Advocate, make sure you’re also offering solutions to the problems you see with the ideas floating around the room. And make sure you give credit where it’s due!


Additional Insight:

Some people are good at being inspired and seeing beyond the problem. They can come up with unique ideas and visual solutions that you may not be able to see. But if you keep poking holes at what they have to offer, they’re going to become discouraged and unappreciated. You’ll shut them down entirely and they’ll start to feel as though they don’t want to help you at all.

It’s ok to play Devils Advocate when you’re brainstorming. But would it hurt you to say “that’s a good idea, how can we over come this issue or that problem”. You don’t have to start every sentence with “That won’t work”.

Everyone likes to feel as though they are being listened to and have a sense of value. They may not have your expertise, but through their fresh eyes of learning you may discover something you only assumed through years of doing the same thing every day. That kind of experience creates habits that keep you from looking at new things and fresh ideas. Things change. And there maybe something new that inexperienced beginner knows, that you don’t know.

Everyone in life comes into situations with varying levels of understanding. Old school might be a good thing most of the time, but new school has some innovations that can make things easier, faster, better and more relevant. Don’t dismiss anyone simply because you think you know it all. Chances are you don’t and you maybe pushing away the best idea that’s hit your desk in years!

You can order a personal reading from Spring through the Services at Spring’s Haven. We offer both in-house and email/phone/skype consultations. As a Ministerial organization, all our consultations are private and strictly confidential.

It’s My Day

Wolf MondayMonday

According to the International Standard (ISO 8601) for Calendar systems, Monday is the first day of the week. For us in the English speaking world, the name of Monday is derived from Old English Mōnandæg and Middle English Monenday, which means “Moon day”. The Old English names derived from Germanic languages which also translate to Moon.

Even the ancient Chinese words for Monday mean “Day of the Moon”. Monday can also be derived from Sanskrit Somavāra, where Soma is another day for the Moon. Now shouldn’t Moon Day be a special day for Pagans? I think so. But there’s more.

According to Wikipedia Weekday Names:
The earliest attestation of a seven-day week associated with heavenly luminaries is in the title of a lost work by Plutarch (46-120AD) titled Why are the days named after the planets reckoned in a different order from the actual order? The order of the days was Sun, Moon, Ares, Hermes, Zeus, Aphrodite, and Cronos, named after the heavenly bodies that presided over the first daylight hour of each day, according to Hellenistic astrology. From Greece the planetary week names passed to the Romans, and from Latin to other languages of southern and western Europe, and to other languages later influenced by them. Continue reading
