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

Ten of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t give up on what you’ve already gained. Fan the momentum of success and keep things going forward. You’re so used to the defeatist attitude, that you’re making it become your reality. Turn that perspective around and see the success that’s all around you.


Additional Insight:

Cups are essence of Emotions & Apathy, Happiness & Despair, Abundance & Lack.

Now is not the time to give in because things aren’t moving as quickly as you’d like. Or as soon as you think they should. You’re giving energy to the negative and bringing more of the same challenge and struggle into your world. Stop it!

It’s not easy to walk the spiritual path, but if you give in and allow the Divine in your life to guide your steps you will be directed to where you need to be. What you “want” isn’t always what you need and sometimes things must change and end in order to get there. Continue reading

Our Prayers To Brussels

Healing Through Compassion & Affirmation

Thoughts & Prayers For Our Brethren In Brussels

We have shared our deepest sympathies too many times on days like today where our news is blanketed with terror, sadness and intolerance. This is not the time to demean, insult or threaten a population of people who share a nationality with those who have chosen violence to express their anger and hatred. We hope everyone around the world will show compassion and refrain from directing their fear or anger toward innocent people who themselves are fearful and filled with sadness.

We also hope and pray that the political rhetoric remains calm, that wisdom be placed in the hearts and minds of our world leaders as they and their officials face the challenges brought to us all by these acts of  terror.

Everyone here at Springwolf Reflections and Spring’s Haven extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims, their family and friends in Brussels. Along with all the people of Belgium and Europe who are now in the shadow of sorrow and fear. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Wands

Five of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Magik is in play, so don’t be startled if something comes your way with a surprise inside. The next 5 days will bring opportunities, some unexpected and some you’ve been waiting for over the past few months. Be gracious and humble as you accept these gifts and share them with those you care about.


Additional Insight:

Wands represent the essence of Enterprise & Inaction, Inspiration & Pessimism, Distinction & Disregard.

The little irritations you’ve been dealing with aren’t that big of a deal. Don’t allow them to create pessimism around your thoughts or actions. Set them aside and focus on what’s important. Disregard the negative nay-sayers, the defeated recordings in your head. Be careful you don’t allow those frustrations to get in your way and create inaction. Doing so could cause many things you’ve been working hard on, to backfire. Continue reading

2016 Equinox and the Full Moon

Moon Phase by Udell Enterprises, Inc.

Moon Phase by Udell Enterprises, Inc.

A Special Conjunction

This year, the first equinox coincides with a full moon. For Pagans this heightens the energy for both the Equinox holiday and the observance of the full moon.

The equinox marks that time of the year when the Earth begins to shift on its axis. It marks the change of seasons for each hemisphere; from Winter to Spring in the north and Summer to Fall in the south.

It’s best known as being the time when the number of hours for the day is equal to the number of hours for the night. But this isn’t accurate.

..day and night are not exactly equal at the equinox for two reasons. First, daytime begins the moment any part of the Sun is over the horizon, and it is not over until the last part of the Sun has set. If the Sun were to shrink to a starlike point and we lived in a world without air, the spring and fall equinoxes would truly have ‘equal nights.’ – From The Old Farmer’s Almanac

Here in Richmond Virginia, the equinox officially occurs on Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 12:30 AM EDT. That’s midnight on Saturday night. You can visit TimeAndDate.com to find the exact time in your area.

This astronomical event has long been observed as a spiritual occurrence. And that’s certainly true for Pagans around the world. But what that holiday celebrates and who or what it honors depends on if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere or in the South. Since Pagans begin their holiday observance at sunset and celebrate during the night hours, this becomes an important honoring of the event. Continue reading

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

King of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Go with the flow and be ready to catch what comes your way. Being strong and capable doesn’t mean you must be ready for a fight. Good leadership knows what battles are worth fighting and which ones should be ignored. Don’t let others control your thoughts or actions and the weekend is yours for the taking.


Additional Insight:

Swords can bring strength and courage to any situation. But it’s a double edge sword that requires wisdom to hold the hilt steady. It’s a fine line to balance the energy that wants to fight or finds a better way through peace. If you plan on a fight, you will pull that energy toward you and create self-fulfilling prophecies. So be cautious today and through the weekend concerning your thoughts and reactions. 

Instead, be Mindful, calm and at peace. Avoid situations you know will lead to battles right now. There’s nothing wrong with taking a break and re-grouping your thoughts and energies. Rest, relax and take in the scenery to gain a refreshed perspective. Or simply get a way from it all for a brief respite. You could use the distraction to uplift your spirit.

Happy Irish Pride Day

Irish Cream by Anna Ignatieva

Irish Cream by Anna Ignatieva

Celebrating The Emerald Isle

Today many pagans see March 17th as a day of anger against a Catholic Priest who practiced genocide upon the pagans of Ireland. Much of this angst is over blown and not really based in historical evidence and fact.  But the idea that St. Patrick drove the snakes (pagans) out of Ireland, still exists and brings up passionate displeasure toward the observance of this Priest.

As with all things, this day has evolved and changed in meaning over time. It’s no longer solely celebrating the life of a Catholic Priest who was promoted to Sainthood. It has become much more secular and is celebrated by people in many religions and faiths. Here in the America’s at least, it’s more about Irish Pride than a religious observance.

To learn more, read about Why Pagan’s Don’t Celebrate St. Paddy’s day. And if you’re Pagan and Irish, honor your heritage by donning the green of the Emerald Isle and raising a toast to the ancient Clans of Ireland.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The World – Inverted

The World - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Wear the hat of love today and show compassion to those around you. Even those you’re doing battle with can become allies and friends. Divided we fall. But united we can face the challenges and overcome the struggles. Don’t waste your time on angst. Allow the soft nature of compassion to wash away the anxiety and anger.


Additional Insight:

Hate and anger will only divide and destroy those things we hold most dear to ourselves. We feed the anxiety and allow it to become more than it really is. Blowing perspectives and differences out of proportion, taking us to a place we may not be able to turn back from.

This kind of battle is only based on fear and the fear mongering of others. We can chose to rise above or we can remain silent and allow these energies to fester. Staying quiet and hoping for the best as you watch silently is no better than putting your head in the sand. You cannot face down your fears, or sit back and ignore challenges, hoping they will miraculously disappear.  Continue reading

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

Ace of Wands - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Tap into what’s hidden in the shadows beneath the surface and you’ll discover an unlimited source of energy. Show your confidence and ambition throughout the day with an ounce of humility that shows compassion and appreciation for all. Decisions are being made and you’re being watched by those who could advance your cause and dream. Be focused. You will be noticed.


Additional Insight:

There’s a fine line between arrogance and confidence. Which side of the line you fall on will depend on the viewer and how they see themselves. Those who secretly hold onto self-doubt will see your strengths as arrogant. Those who appreciate the confidence in others, will see your strengths as assets and beneficial to their plans.

How others see you isn’t the important aspect of the day. How you see yourself is where the focus should be today. It will allow you to support those who are lacking in self-esteem. Continue reading

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

Ace Of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Showing strength isn’t achieved through putting others down through name calling or falsehoods. Watch your words not only in what you say, but how you say it. Be open to new ideas that may expand your thinking or provide inspiration. You can get through the day in triumph by showing a little humility and appreciation for what others have to offer.


Additional Insight:

Swords represent Strength & Weakness, Endurance & Struggle, Respect & Animosity.

How you speak and share ideas says a lot about who you are and the path you walk. Your words can be a double edge sword constantly slicing into those around you. Or it can be a symbol of celebration and pride for yourself or for all those who work around you or with you.

If you must put others down so you look bigger, wiser or more important than your neighbor, you’ll create animosity and strife. Not only from others, but from within yourself as well. So be very careful about the wars you might create or take on today. You could start a war that you’re not ready for and battles that you can never win.
