Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Nine of Wands

Nine Of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

While you’re constantly thinking that the other shoe is going to drop, you’re actually creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. Knock it off! You maybe feeling tided down and exhausted today. But it’s from your own doing. You don’t have to do everything on your own.  You’re liable to weaken your immune system and open the door to catching a cold, or worse, the flu. Stop feeling like everything is on your shoulders alone. It’s not.


Additional Insight:

You’ve become so used to carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, that you still think you have to bear that burden. You don’t, because the burden was already resolved and you saved the day. Exhaustion isn’t something that works in your favor, so stop worrying.

Everything IS ok. You’ve past the point of “it’s going to be ok” several months ago. You’ve moved into the recovery period. But you can’t seem to let go of the thoughts from the past and the burdens that were piled on your shoulders.

No matter what the issue, physical, mental, emotional, financial, whatever, you’ve crossed the mountain top. No more climbing needed. Now you’ll need to catch your thinking up to the new dynamic in your life. Let go of the worry and sense of being overburdened. That worry is making you weary and the response is going to cause other problems you don’t need to walk through. 

You clawed your way through the trials and struggles. You’ve been pushed in new directions and placed in new positions. Some of this may have been a course correction of spirit. Some of it maybe your own karma at work to improve your conditions and to help you fulfill your spiritual mission. Some of it may not have been in your hands at all. But you’ve learned a lot, about yourself, about the people you can trust and about those who truly have your back when the bottom drops out. Those are the people you’ll need to help up one day.

Relax, let go of the unnecessary stress. You’re creating issues where there is nothing there to see. Adjust your perspective concerning how far you’ve come and exactly where you want to get back to. Are you sure, the destination you envision is the place you want to go? Because the place you left, didn’t seem to work out for your best interests.

Perhaps it’s time to rethink your ultimate goal and open the doors a little wider this time. Be open to new and even greater things than what you’ve been thinking about. Going back to where you were isn’t the answer. You deserve better and you can achieve it. If you let go of the anchor holding you back.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Magician

The Magician

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

With all the tools at your disposal, you’ll be able to keep all your projects afloat. Don’t worry so much about getting things done. You’re on track and keeping things moving forward. While everyone else is in an exaggerated panic, you can keep the actual work in perspective and headed to its successful conclusion.


Additional Insight:

Success comes from being prepared for any situation. It’s knowing what issues are hype or hysteria and which are serious problems. Don’t waste your day chasing the ghosts, created by someone else out of fear and a lack of experience. They’re in a panic because they have no idea what’s really going on. Be the leader and reassure everyone that things are fine and under control. No need to worry.

Even if there are real issues to be dealt with, you have everything you need to correct the problem. These aren’t band-aid solutions, but real fixes. Give yourself credit for understanding the dilemma and finding the right tool to resolve the minor bumps, as well as, the big conflicts. It’s not going to be the rough day that others want to make it out to be. Ignore their need for being the center of a drama and trying to create a mountain out of a mole hill.

By this evening, you’ll be able to relax. So kick back and put your feet up. Leave the outside world at your front door and be careful you’re not bringing anything negative into your home. While you might be able to direct your day through the made up conflict, others around you may not be so lucky. Step in, share a hug, an “it’s going to be ok”, and do something nice to help out. Then everyone will be able to relax and enjoy the calm serenity.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Fool – Inverted

The Fool Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

This is not your day to play the fool, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a ray of sunshine. The best revenge is living well, and being happy in the face of fear and anger. So while someone is trying to ruin your day, remember how good you’ve got it. You have everything they don’t have, and on top of that, you’re happy, footloose and fancy free today.


Additional Insight:

You’re surrounded by the things or people who bring you happiness. Maybe you received good news or a gift over the weekend that lifted your spirits. Maybe it was just a few good moments with family or friends that have given you a long lasting effect. Whatever it was, let it keep your spirits high throughout the day. You deserve to feel good and dance in the light of success.

In the meantime, someone who isn’t as fortunate and who is resisting the healing opportunities being offered, lurks in the shadows. Pay them no mind. You don’t have to do anything to help their karmic debt along. The Divine Universe has all that well in hand. They want you to be sad or scared and looking over your shoulder every few minutes. It’s not necessary, they have no control or power any longer. They can’t hurt you, especially if you don’t give them the power to do so.

Live well, be happy, and take things in stride today. The more you meet conflict head on with calm thoughtful compassion, the easier it will be to resolve the issues of pretense. While others maybe claiming disaster and screaming that the sky is falling, you know it’s just hype and distraction. Stay focused and don’t let others turn your attention away from your task at hand. Or you can ease the worries of those who are getting caught up in the game. Explain why these made up worries don’t matter and why everything is still under control and moving forward. But do it with calm serenity, not gloating arrogance. Stay focused on the issues, not the person trying to cause the problems. If you’re not worried by the fool, others won’t be either. And their game will continue to fail.

By evening, you’ll be walking with a smile and little bounce in your step. Satisfied in the knowledge that you won the day and everything is alright. Relax and enjoy yourself. Take a walk, play a game, but totally disconnect from the day’s tribulations. They’re not important and there’s no reason to rehash them all night long. Give yourself an opportunity to laugh and maybe lift the spirits of someone close to you, who might have been pulled into their version of the “nothing drama” of the day. It’s easier to laugh at the fools, than to allow their actions to turn on you and sucker you into their game.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Four of Pentacles

4 of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Keep an eye on what’s yours and be careful who you turn your back on. Someone is trying to take what you have. Not because they need it, but because they’re angry. That might mean you’ll have to get someone in authority involved. Whatever you do, don’t give in and don’t feel sorry for them. They made their choices and taking it out on you, isn’t going to fix them.


Additional Insight:

Whither it’s tough love or some situation at work, lashing out at others for mistakes you’ve made is never going resolve any situation. Sometimes that kind of short-sighted spite can be worse than just making another bad choice. You’ve put up with a lot in the last four years and sometime you simply have to let go and let “god”. It’s out of your hands.

Now that you’ve finally got a little extra in your pantry, you’ll have some time to relax and breathe. Don’t let someone else’s anger ruin that for you. You’ve faced your fears, over come your trials and you’re finally getting things moving in your favor. All that hard work deserves some respect and admiration. Even if you’re the only one recognizing the accomplishment.

Put your foot down today and for the remainder of the weekend, relax and enjoy life for a bit. Walk among the trees, sit on a park bench and feed the birds. Take a drive and explore the world. Don’t over due it though. These next few days are your opportunity to pack in some extra sleep, recoup your energy and let go of stress. By Monday, things will start to get back to normal.

Merry Imbolg & Lammas 2018

Celebration of the return Sun

Celebration of the Sun

The Festival of Lights and Fire

The time of Spring is upon us here in the Northern Hemisphere as the Sun begins his return to warm our hearts and extend his light in our day. His return rings in the first of the Spring Holidays known as Imbolc, Imbolg, Brigid’s Day or the Festival of Lights.

In the Southern Hemisphere the summer is marked by its peak of the Sun during the Fire Festival. It is the time of Lughnasadh, also known as Lammas or the Fire Festival which honors the Celtic hero Lugh. It is the first of the Pagan Harvest Festivals and the time of year to thank the Tuatha Dé Danann (the Faeries) for their help in our gardens.

These Sabbats (Pagan Holidays) are observed on February 1st or 2nd, depending on one’s personal Tradition (spiritual denomination). Because Pagans celebrate on a Lunar Calendar schedule, our holiday observances actually begin  at sunset on the evening before the scheduled day.

Those who recognize February 1st as the observed holiday, will begin their rituals on January 31st. While others, like my Clan, being our celebrations tonight and observe the holiday on February 1st.

This year we’re blessed with the energy of GrandMother Moon’s full phase, ringing in the Snow Moon for the north and the  Thunder Moon of the south.

Everyone here at Springwolf Reflections and Spring’s Haven extend our wishes to you and yours for a wonderful and joyous celebration of warmth and light. Where ever you are in the world,

May Your Season Be Blessed with Abundance and Happiness

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Star

The Star

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

The dry spell is over and it’s time for abundance to come flowing in. Your search for answers and hard work will pay off today. Enjoy the cool waters that cut through the red tape, break down barriers and take you on a wondrous journey that meanders past the nay-sayers. Your own star will guide the way for others to discover their own journey.


Additional Insight:

Water represents many things around the world. In Alchemy it’s the symbol of love and fertility. In Feng Shui, flowing water is the sign of  wealth and prosperity. It’s nearly always represented by the color blue and flowing water is always better than still water that can become stagnate.

Sometimes to keep the water of abundance flowing you have to keep working, slow and steady. You can’t cut corners, or try to rush the tide. That can have a disastrous effect on your boat and the surrounding scenery. It can create chaos, destruction and divert the river from it’s intended course.

Water is a malleable element, it can bend and mold itself into any shape as you try to contain it. Over time it can chip away at the things blocking its way, breaking down barriers and making new paths in the landscape ahead. It can be as powerful as any unstoppable force, even when it’s gently making its way through a rocky valley.

Today is your time to go with the flow and let it take you to where you need to be. Fighting the gentle push has kept you in the dark or struggle for too long. Relax, let go. You’ve asked for the changes that bring your life to an easier journey. Ok, here it is. Let the Divine force move you along. For some that might be saying good-bye to people who are no longer moving with you. For others it may mean an inevitable move needs to take place. Just know you’re going to be ok. Let the water of love and abundance take you to where you need to be. The change is necessary to continue the journey forward.
