Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Swords

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Nine of Swords

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

You can focus on patterns of strength, or patterns of anger. The choice is up to you. Strength will bring virtues that get you through the dark times and always keep you in the light. Anger will only weaken you and constantly keep you in harm’s way and under attack. The pattern you chose today will set up the rest of the year. Make sure you select the right path to move toward a prosperous future.

Additional Insight:

You don’t need to hide and worry yourself through the night in trepidation for what may never happen. With experience comes wisdom and the knowledge that fear is destructive and useless. Stop focusing on what you might lose, or what you may not have and focus on your strengths.

Use your tenacity to build a pattern of endurance, fortitude and stability. These things will allow you to see through the blocks that both you and others put before you. You’ll find the weakness in their argument, the weak link in their actions and you will be the one who gets through the fray.

Swords represent Strength & Weakness, Endurance & Struggle, Respect & Animosity. You have the Strength, you know you’ve acquired the Endurance. Now it’s time to Respect yourself and let go of the animosity, guilt, self loathing or whatever adjective that fits your perspective of self. Whatever it is you have left of the negative perceptions when you look in the mirror; time to let go and move on. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Wheel of Fortune

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Wheel of Fortune X

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Don’t allow those trying to jam up the machine to get you down. Your movement is not dictated by their actions. Move along and do what needs to get done in order to keep your passion going forward. The wheel of fortune is on your side and you’re the one who will reap the benefits through the weekend.

Additional Insight:

The fires of hate will only succeed if you allow them to heat up your anger and emotions. You don’t define who you are by their fear or lies. So don’t take it to heart or take it so personally. Their actions will come back to them and reap its own karma in their lives. There’s nothing you have to do.

There’s no reason to focus on the negative. Let those who have attacked you unfairly to spin their wheels and try to throw a cog in the wheels. It won’t do anything but show them for the negative people they are. It will expose the hidden secrets they’ve wanted to keep in the closet and maybe even save someone in their life from being hurt more than they already have been.

Today, turn your attention to promoting your own adventures and seeking your own way. It’s the same path, the same direction and the same enthusiasm you had a week ago. And perhaps this event has elevated your exposure to those who needed to see your presence in the world, but hadn’t noticed you before. Continue reading

Facebook’s Discrimination of Pagans

Lady Spring Wolf - 06.2015

Lady Spring Wolf – 06.2015

Help Fight Discrimination on Facebook!

Facebook has made a policy that allows any user to report another member because they do not like their name or think the name is being used to bullying others or is fake. However this policy is being used as a weapon by cyber bullies and religious terrorists to harass and intimidate minorities. This happened to me this week.

All it takes is for someone who doesn’t like you, your name or the content of your page to send Facebook a report about your displayed name making an accusation that it’s fake and your account is suspended. No double checking, no review of your page or content, no contacting you first. Your account is suspended until you can prove you are who you say you are.

Update: 08.22 – 4:50pm Eastern
This afternoon FB responded to an email I submitted concerning this issue. They are asking for additional ID information. I’ve provided 3 forms of ID already. So I sent them an image of the cover of my book and demanded my page be reinstated.

In the meantime we have converted one of our FB administration accounts to serve as what we hope is a temporary FB page for Spring. You’ll find her at:

Update 08.26 – I’m back!  One Win For The Pagan Side!

In February 2015 Steve Dent  wrote in “Native Americans still battling Facebook over ‘real name’ policy.”:
Facebook itself doesn’t pore through names to check authenticity. Instead, the reports often come in bunches from users targeting minorities, making Facebook an unwitting party to discrimination. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Six of Wands

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Six of Wands

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

The journey brings welcome and accolades from friends and fans. Be gracious and thankful for the attention. Even though it takes work and you maybe a little tired from the trip, it’s well worth the effort. Don’t ignore those who helped you arrive. You could use the goodwill and the confidence boost right about now.  Humility and grace are on the schedule.

Additional Insight:

You’ve put in a lot of work to get noticed and that’s finally paying off. Don’t miss the chance to receive the accolades because you’re tired and in a bad mood. That one moment could destroy what you’ve spent months and even years to build.

Whither you’re trying to gain the attention of one person or a stadium full of fans, this is your moment to acquire the warm welcome. You have arrived. Be gracious and humble. Make sure you acknowledge those who helped you along the way. And remember you wouldn’t be here if it were not for those supporting you and cheering you on.

All that support from the tiny to the big, kept you going and got you through the rough patches. They brought energy into your days when you thought you had nothing left. And they gave you encouragement and inspiration when you couldn’t see over the obstacles in your way. Continue reading

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

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Ace of Wands - Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Be careful what you hold onto, you could get burned. Sometimes there’s a very good reason to let go of something you feel passionate about. There’s hidden issues, or unseen attitudes that could land you in a lot of trouble. Don’t regret the decisions you’ve made when you know you’ve done your best. Every thing happens for a reason, in the right time and place when you follow your instincts and go with the flow.

Additional Insight:

Magik is the art of energy manipulation. No other suit in the Tarot represents that art more than the Wands. They represent the essence of Enterprise & Inaction, Inspiration & Pessimism, Distinction & Disregard. They express these energies through the manner in which you put forth your thoughts and deeds. Your intentions are what’s key in the art of magik.

Your intent defines and infuses the energy you put out and what you get in return. But none of us are alone in this world. When you express energy to attain something, you are merging your intention with that of others involved in the situation. One is not more “powerful” or “weaker” than the other. They merge together and move forward with a pattern of energy that can predict the probable outcome of an event based on choices we’ve made.

If your intention is pure, but theirs is not, the Divine Universe has a way of balancing out the situation to keep you from facing issues or hardships that you don’t deserve. Sometimes that means we don’t always get what we “want”. And while it may not feel like it at the time, that’s probably a good thing and a blessings we won’t find out about until later. If at all. So there’s no need to dwell on the situation. Rather chalk it up to an exercise that’s preparing you for the real brass ring you’re really waiting to capture. Because this one wasn’t it.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The World – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - The World XXI - Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Shine a light on your unconventional methods and you might receive a standing ovation for your performance. There’s always many ways of doing things, especially if they’re old tasks that benefit from new technology. Your version saves time and money, so it will get noticed by those who are sponsoring your task. Be humble, but accept the accolades and let the energy give you a confidence boost. You earned it.

Additional Insight:

Don’t be afraid to make improvements on the old or normal way of doing things. Innovation comes in many forms and only requires imagination to see an alternative. In some cases you can simply update the procedures and note the benefits. In other cases, go over your ideas with those in charge and get permission to try the new methods. Use your best judgment, but be careful not to ruffle feathers.

This afternoon the reviews will be coming in and you’ll have something to celebrate with family and friends. There could even be a raise or special reward in it for you. It’s ok to feel pride in your accomplishments. But remember no one goes it alone. So be humble and say thanks. But don’t boast too much or brag to those who you know are struggling in their tasks.
