My Friday the 13th, 2016 Adventure

It seems fitting to have an encounter with a black animal on Friday the 13th. We have cats, and a wild black cat hangs around house now and then throughout the week. So for us, cats aren’t unusual.

But this afternoon while I was going out on an errand, I ran into some traffic at the security gate to our neighborhood. Now if you’ve followed my blog for a little while, you may know we live on large lake in a gated community. We have a great deal of wild life around here, including various types of snakes. In and out of the water. But I didn’t expect to see a snake in the road in the highest traffic area of our entire community.

As I was pulling up to the exit side of the gate house, I noticed something in the road. People were driving around it or right over it, but either way, careful not to hit it. When I approached, I realized it was a snake. Two of my favorite security guys were out there, keeping their distance with another resident pointing and looking at the snake. But they didn’t seem to know what to do about it. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Star

The Star

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be the Star and create your own future. Go with the flow and allow the stream to take you where you need to be today. Fighting against the tied will only create havoc. So be easy going, follow the stream and you’ll discover opportunities that will allow you to make your own way over the mountain.

Additional Insight:

Let your sparkle shine and be noticed today. You provide the nurturing to your own creations and that will let them flow into public view. It’s not a day to sit quietly in your corner and hope the world sees you working hard and being dedicated. Sometimes you have to show the results of your endeavors to gain the attention you need to take things to the next level.

Don’t drown your sorrows or try to dull the emotions right now. You need all your wits about you for what’s to come. Running away isn’t going to solve the dilemma or promote your work. It’s only going to brand you as a ‘drama queen’. There’s no reason to be gloomy or down on yourself. It’s Friday the 13th, the day of transition and change! Welcome it. It’s a good day for letting things go your way.

Happy Friday the 13th, 2016!

Black WolfMay 13, 2016

It’s another occurrence of the 13th falling on a Friday. And to Pagan’s that’s a good day!

Fear of Friday the 13th is known as triskaidekaphobes.

While the mainstream Western World runs in fear from Friday the 13th, many pagans should shed those made up connotations and revel in the day as one to be celebrated with joy and excitement. It’s a time to let go of the old that maybe holding you back and welcome in the new. It’s a day to honor the Divine (whatever that is to you) and connect with spirit for progress, and positive transformation. It’s a good day to create new ritual tools, such as carving a new wand, fashioning a new broom or even simply cleaning off your altar and re-organizing your supply closet.

Whither you’re Pagan or not, everyone here at Springwolf Reflections and Spring’s Haven would like to send out our wish for you to have a Wondrous and Happy Friday the 13th to One and All!
