20150408-01 Spring Break by Springwolf

Spring Break by Springwolf

A Week of Spring Break…plus one

Our spring break was exceptionally busy, active and filled with some much needed adventure! We took time to visit our own homeland of Virginia. A tour of Manassas Battlefield to see one of our favorite statues of Stonewall Jackson. We also visited the Fredericksburg Battlefields and where Jackson was accidentally shot by his own men. Then we headed up to D.C. and took a tour of the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum.

We walked and walked and when you thought you couldn’t walk any further, we walked some more. We saw planes, trains, galaxies and super novas. Buildings big and tall, old and new and a few on wheels. We visited with family and ate out; a lot. Got stuffed, several times. And enjoyed desserts of varying kinds.

We had such a good time that we had to extend our break by one day to catch up on the nitty-gritty things of every day life. I need a vacation to rest up from our vacation.  We seriously had a good week!!

Consequently we didn’t pull a tarot card for the daily meditation today. Sorry about that. But we will be back tomorrow! So stay tuned. I’m looking forward to getting back into our regular routine.

Spring has sprung here in the Northern Hemisphere and magik seems to be working hard to bring about new things to the fairly new year!

More tomorrow.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Pentacles

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Seven of Pentacles

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

You’ve worked hard to arrange your plan and set your tasks. Stick to it as much as possible. But remember nothing is written in stone. You may need to make a few minor tweaks to get everything completed. But your effort to manage expectations, pay attention to the details and allowing the schedule to be flexible will pay off by Monday. Things are working out! Keep it going!

Additional Insight:

Take a deep breath and relax. Success is in the air and you’ve finally turned the corner. But don’t try to skip to far ahead yet. You still have a few things to do in order to win the day or the whole weekend.

You prioritized your list and you know what has to be done. So start putting your steps into practice and get the tasks done in the order you designed. Some aspects of your plan are ready and waiting, while some might need an adjustment or two. Don’t be so rigid that you’re unwilling to make small compromises to get what you want.

Everyone has a piece of the pie to claim for their gain. Don’t begrudge others for getting what their due. Make sure you make allowances for the final deal that includes the commission for the one who has put all this together.

The biggest part of the weekend is to finally feel you can relax a bit and take some of the weight off your shoulders. Things are working out in your favor and you’ll be able to accomplish the bigger goal you set for yourself. The rewards for your perseverance are arriving. So don’t get upset or change the flow of energy back into that negative self talk if something isn’t exactly perfect as you planned. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Lovers

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - The Lovers

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Make the effort to remind your family and friends that you really do love them. Spending time together is great. But remember it’s not necessarily the quantity of time that matters most, but the quality. If you’re distant from those you care about when you’re with them, they’ll get the idea you’re no longer interested. Holding hands, a touch on the shoulder or face can go a long way to reminding you all that love still lights the way.

Additional Insight:

We can spend a lot of time with those we love and never share a touch, a kind glance or use the words to remind each other that we still love them. It doesn’t take much to reinforce the emotions we share.

Holding hands for no reason. Reaching across the dinner table and sharing a tender caress, a gentle tap on the shoulder or better yet, what about a nice hug to remind those we care for that we’re still there by their side.

We can get caught up in the nitty-gritty business of the day and focus on the plan, the next chore or the next stop on the calendar and forget that all the work means little when you have no one to share with. If you’ve been feeling lonely, look in the mirror and ask yourself why. If you’re not getting the attention, than someone in your life hasn’t been getting the reminders either.

You don’t have to be in a relationship to have those feelings either. We all have family and friends. At least one person out there is waiting for you to call and say “let’s go out for tea and have an adventure”. Even if that someone is a 4-legged best friend. Continue reading

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

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Six of Swords - Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Be careful who you have your sights set on. They may not want the extra attention at this time. You could be turning things upside down from what you really want to achieve. The best way to garner the attention you seek, is to be respectful and honor the wishes of those you care about.

Additional Insight:

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

It’s time to trust your instincts and put out your “feelers” to make sure those you’re targeting for that April Fool’s joke are ready to handle the extra attention. Not everyone is in a position to have a carefree and light-hearted day.

Remember many are still struggling and facing situations of great anxiety. So if you don’t know their whole story, take some time to find out how they’re doing before you play your prank. Making someone feel like a fool could be the last straw that breaks their resolve and weakens their strength to endure the struggle they’re going through.

Or there maybe people who are having a bad day and simply need a good laugh. You can help heal their mind and heart with a simple silly joke and giggle. Laughter can be the best medicine when it’s shared and others laugh “with” you. But leave the mean pranks behind and hold respect for everyone who crosses your path today. It could be the key to gaining the attention of the one you’re interested in and turning things upside down into a moment of animosity. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Hanged Man

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - The Hanged Man

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Be careful where you step today, there are some potholes looking for unsuspecting victims. There’s a time and place for everything. It’s a good idea to read the signs before move into an area that might otherwise need to be avoided. Be in the here and now and pay attention to where you’re going and you’ll avoid the traps being laid by others.

Additional Insight:

It’s not a day to daydream and get lost in your thoughts. Be present in your day and pay attention to the details at hand. Whither by accident or on purpose someone has left a few potholes that can trip you up as you travel through your tasks. 

Misinformation and spin is a key component behind those trying to get what they want at your expense. Make sure you do your own research and check out the regulations and code before you start designing your plans. You’ll save yourself some trouble later on and even improve your reputation for being good at what you do.

Respect will get you through the challenge, but remember to respect yourself above all else. Don’t be rushed or pushed too quickly. Make sure you take the time to double-check the numbers and ensure you’re not being tricked and harassed into something that will be detrimental to you and yours in the long run. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Wands

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Five of Wands

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Be careful how you use your intuition and magik. You might get exactly what you’re asking for and it may not be what you really want. Words and actions have energy to create. Be Mindful of your tone, your actions and your intent throughout the day to avoid conflict.

Additional Insight:

What you think, say and do creates energy. Make sure you know what you’re talking about before you pick a side. You can inspire a revolution, or work out a peace agreement. But what you do will create your future. Make sure you know what kind of tomorrow you’re going to walk through and that it’s really the one you want.

We all allow stress and anxiety to overcome our emotions and attitudes. But that’s the result of fear and worry from the unknown and that which we don’t understand. Trust in the flow of the Divine energy in your life and know you will be cared for and it’s going to be ok.

Relax and stop generating the negative. You’re not going to move things along any faster. All you’ll do is cause yourself to become sick and laid up for a few days feeling miserable.

Sometimes when we’re unsure of exactly what we want. Or when we are sure but we allow other influences to cloud our view; the Universe gives us a little nudge in the right direction. Go with the flow and stop working so hard to make things happen. They’re manifesting in the right time and place for your highest good. Be patient.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ace of Cups

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Ace of Cups

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

The trophy is yours, fill it with abundance and celebrate the win. That long-standing struggle has been greatly alleviated. So let yourself feel rewarded, because you have earned it for sure. Let this overflow of abundance refill your passion and brighten the weekend with positive energy. Relax, let go of the stress and breathe! Your energy will nurture others and spread through waters to pay it forward.

Additional Insight:

The rewards for perseverance are finally coming in. Share the wealth by paying it forward and thanking those who were there for you. Even if it’s simply a message to let them know everything is going to be ok now. The relief will make them all feel better and feel excited about the shift in energy.

You can finally relax and catch up on sleep, smiles and relaxation. But don’t spend your rewards until you have them in hand. You’ve waited this long, you can wait a few more days. Timing is a key part of the prize, so be patient.

When you do receive the chalice of success, don’t gloat or otherwise be a bad winner. Be gracious and kind. Show your compassion for those who are still trying to keep their heads above water. There by the grace of the Divine Universe were you. And you know how it feels to grasp at straws and hope things will be ok.

By Sunday you’ll feel great and ready to take on the world as the week begins. Make a plan and schedule your appointments to take care of business first. Be practical and prioritize your responsibilities. The week will go by fast if you do and by next weekend, you’ll really be ready to celebrate!

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Star

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - XVII The Star

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Don’t change who you are to satisfy those around you. Not in appearance or attitude. Their interest is fleeting and resides on shaky ground. Stand up for yourself and be the Star that shines because you are true to yourself. It takes much less work and effort to be yourself anyway. Be comfortable in your own skin and let your instincts guide your path. You’ll acquire accolades and that’s nice. But more importantly, you’ll gain the respect you deserve.

Additional Insight:

Being yourself is a lot of work. Being what others want you to be takes even more effort because it’s not part of your being. You have to think through everything, pause and take a double glance at how you respond or perceive what’s expected of you. And then worry if you got it right.

Why change who you are for the favor of someone who doesn’t care about the real you in the first place? It’s not worth the effort. You deserve to be loved and appreciated for who and what you are. If YOU don’t like something about yourself, than change it for YOU. If you want help changing something about yourself, then ask for help and support. But the only way to do it and succeed, is to make the changes you desire by doing it for YOU.

Trying to be what you’re not opens the door to being labeled fake, a fraud, a manipulator. It generates energy of mistrust and disdain. All of which you don’t need in your life. Shed the old skin and release the negative expectations. You’ll brighten the sky with your inner divine light and show the way for others to find themselves within their being. Continue reading

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

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - King of Pentacles: Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Stop focusing on the negative or worrying about what you’ll have to do if things don’t happen. Nothing is set in stone and there’s no reason to wait for the other shoe to drop. You’re creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You’ve won the little battles and forging ahead. All you need to do is be patient and allow everything to manifest in the right time and space. Stay Mindful and positive. Things are going to be fine.

Additional Insight:

The ships are on the move and getting closer to manifesting in your physical world. The energy has been sent on within the smoke signals and they have been received in the spiritual world. And no matter how much you’ve tried to sabotage your plans, you’ve managed to keep the messages and energy going in the right direction.

Have Faith and stop allowing the hope to fall into despair. Thinking the worst is going to take the positive energies you worked so hard on, to fade and transform. What you put out, you will bring back and attract to you. Stop it already! Geez!

Stop giving lip service to what you believe and start living it! Allow the Divine force in your life to take care of you as you are intended to be. It’s not easy waiting and trying to be patient. There are even lessons in that exercise to be learned and experienced. Spend some time meditating on what that lesson is for you and allow it to bring wisdom into your day. Continue reading

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

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Two of Wands - Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Don’t try to read between the lines. If you want to know something ask someone who you know for sure has the answer. Have the guts to face the mystery head on and don’t listen to the rumors and innuendo. Walk away from the gossip mongers. You don’t need their negativity in your life.

Additional Insight:

Those spreading gossip are only looking at what’s in it for them. Be cautious of their stories. They’re either totally wrong and spreading lies that hurt the innocent. Or they’re manipulating the situation to gain position and status for their own favor.

For what purpose? To be the Town Crier? That’s not something to be respected. Spreading half-truths, or publicizing secrets or the confidence of someone is not honorable. It is underhanded and shows how easy you’d betray others for your own gains. That’s more despicable than admirable.

If you want to be looked up to, the most powerful ability you can hold is being trusted. Being the confidant of someone you care about no matter what the news or situation is where the real gift exists. When you’re trusted, others put their faith in you. They come to you for help, advice, or merely to have someone in their life they can trust and share things with.

That role is an important one in everyone’s life. We all need at least one person we can trust. If someone tries to spread gossip in your direction, you’re better off walking away. You don’t have time for these childish high school games. You have other things on your plate that are much more important and require more of your attention. Continue reading
