Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Hermit

The Hermit

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Light the way through the darkness and everyone will stay safe as you journey toward the new. You’ve passed through the heavy brush and can finally see through the dark shadows that have hovered over your path. The new year begins this evening and it’s time to relax and celebrate as you emerge from struggle. Return to the world you have been working so hard to rejoin. Monday will be a new and exciting start to the rest of your travels.


Additional Insight:

The time is coming when you will fully emerge from the darkness of struggle, stress and strife. Lead the way by pushing through the final obstacles that have weighed heavily upon your shoulders. It’s understandable that you’re weary and tired. But don’t give in to the pressures. Especially those you put on yourself. This weekend will help turn both your situation and your mood around.

For Pagans this evening is a night of reverent celebration to say goodbye to the old year and ring in the exciting adventures of the new seasons to come. Merry Samhain to you and yours. May you have a wondrous and uplifting festival.

But even if you’re not Pagan, Happy Halloween celebrations can also be merry and exciting. With gifts of laughter, moments of fright and the joyful smiles of the young, excited to dress up and dive into their baskets of chocolate, gummy bears, smarties, cherry pops and fruity treats.

Merry Samhain

Samhain is a Gaelic word that literally translates to  “Summer’s End”. It’s pronounced as sow-en, sow-ween, and yes, for some the Americanized Sam-hain really is acceptable. The holiday reminds us that things change and that includes the words we use, how we use them and even how we say them.

For the Celts, it marks the new year and the renewal of the Wheel of Life. We remember that all things move and change through observances of the changing seasons in the explosion of color (in fall or spring). The only constant in the Divine Universe is that things change. How they change depends on you. For what you think, say and do create the world around you.

Samhain is seen as the night when the dead come through the veil of the Otherworld and visit their living relatives and friends to join in ritual celebrations. This makes Samhain one of the most perfect times to communicate with spirits and honor the loved ones lost during this past year.

For some this holiday is a festival that is celebrated over a period of days. From 1 night, to 3 or even a full week of 7. Some even take 9 full days to recognize the Triple Goddess of Maiden, Mother and Crone to honor the transitions of the Wheel, Circle or Cycle of life. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knight of Cups – Inverted

Knight Of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Make sure your instincts aren’t being overshadowed by your insecurities. Others may not be taking your words as you intend them to be. But their responses may not be what you’re thinking they are trying to say either. Especially if the conversations aren’t in person and face to face. While you’re feeling upside down and under constant scrutiny, it’s easy to feel hurt and unfairly judged. But ask yourself, are you merely looking in the mirror? Are you being way to hard on yourself? Are you using others as a reflection of your own thinking? Stop it already! You’re adding more energy to that self-fulfilling prophecy from yesterday!


Additional Insight:

Are you seeing criticism from others, because of your own thinking of self? It’s time to clean the mirror and change the reflection. Things might still be up in the air and the resolutions unclear. But if you keep feeding the negative perspectives, you will attract more of the same kind of negative energy into your life and undermine all you’re trying to change.

Why can’t you believe that things really are going your way behind the scenes? Don’t you think you’ve worked hard to bring your dreams into reality? Of course you have! So give yourself some credit for trying and doing your best. Have faith that you really do deserve the rewards you’ve been struggling to obtain. Continue reading

Reflections On Today’s Numbers

20141028-p1177The Numerology of 1177

If you’ve been around here for a little while, you know that from time to time numbers catch my attention. When they do, I like to analyze their significations in relation to what’s going on with the day and where they popped up.

When those numbers are connected to my work, I like to share that insight with you. Because it might have some significance to your day.

That happened today when I posted a little News item about appearing on KAOI’s show Talk Story with Cindy Paulos. The longest running talk show on Maui, where Cindy interviews celebrities, political leaders and spiritual teachers.

I posted the news and received the notification this was 1177th post on this blog and it grabbed my attention. Trust your instincts. When something grabs your attention, whether it’s out of the ordinary or something that happens nearly every day, it’s trying to share a message with you. Continue reading

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

Ace of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Many months ago you started working on a variety of solutions so you weren’t putting all your eggs in one basket. That was a good thing and you might find you’ll be able to achieve your goals from more than only one solution. But even if you didn’t implement multiple plans, you have a safety net that’s going to catch your harvest and make sure nothing gets broken. You really need to stop thinking the worse. Or you’re going to create a self-fulfilling prophecy.


Additional Insight:

All Plans include processes that break down into procedures that are implemented through multiple steps. Sometimes those procedures are linked to steps that can’t begin, until the other has completed. The hardest part of any plan is to wait for one procedure to be completed so you can get onto the next one.

These dependent procedures often require others outside your plan to do their job and get back to you. Because you can’t move forward until that last piece is added to your efforts. Then you can check off that step as complete and plug that piece into your plan to hit the ground running forward again.

Patience is part of these efforts. So while you’re waiting on that aspect of this plan to work and manifest, put your attention to your back up plan. Stop worrying that if you’re not right on top of this solution, it’s going to stop and fail. You can’t do it all, so relax and allow others to do their part to move your plan forward. It’s going to take more than you to bring success to your primary efforts. But you also need to keep the backup solution working. It might aid the primary and both solutions could create a better result than you dared to imagine. Continue reading

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

King of Cups Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Spend some time thinking about what you really want. Don’t let your frustrations get to you. Daydreaming about totally different things from what you’ve been working on can slow down your progress. You’re confusing both those in spirit who are trying to manifest your dream and the energy you’re trying to create around you. What you think, you create.; or at least you try to create. Some of those daydreams that involve other people or a specific person may not work out for you. Because those other people may have their own dreams that don’t involve you at all.


Additional Insight:

It would be great if we all were given three wishes from our favorite faery and acquire what we desire. An instant to take away the struggle and live the life we dream, without all the hard work. But do you know exactly what it is you’ll lose and miss out on if you could do that? Be careful what you think and desire; you might get it. And it may not be all that it was cracked up to be.

Everything we think and do has consequences. You might avoid some bad situations, and lose the opportunity to redeem karma, or miss out on the tiniest little event today that could have huge implications next year, or 5 years from now. Destroying the opportunity you’ve long waited for and will never have, because you missed that 5 second encounter in the here and now.

All that daydreaming moves the energy from what you’re focused on from what you need and want. Sure that fantasy is exciting and it takes your mind off the stresses in front of you. But it also takes the energy from manifesting your real work. Don’t set yourself up for failure. Keep focused today and keep on track with what you really need to occur. Keep the path moving forward and you’ll find success at the end of the day.
