THE CHARIOT

THE CHARIOT is our Tarot Card for this week. If it looks a little fierce and scary, that’s because it is! But in this case, it is a good thing.  First off, I will give you THE CHARIOTS traditional meanings; it can mean Willpower, Determination, Drive and Travel. Now to get into it a little deeper. This Tarot Card is a Major Arcana card. Major Arcana cards signify a BIG lesson you are being asked to learn or something BIG that you are going through, and have to get through in order to move forward and out of the current situation. THE CHARIOT rules over the Zodiac sign of Cancer (you can see the symbol of Cancer in the bottom right hand corner of the card in blue that looks like a 69. Cancer is the most ‘watery’ or emotional sign of the whole Zodiac, and all that water/emotions, can get the best of us if we aren’t careful.) In the background you can see a mystical beast, part Wolf and part Boar… pretty fierce and scary creature nipping at our heels! Also in the background we can see a crescent Moon which can signify things that go Boo! or only come out at night.  The Moonscape looks stormy and unsettled. So there we have set up the scene for this card…  eery, scary and fierce! But wait! Let’s get into the mid and foreground of the card. In the middle of the card we see a person standing on a huge brick of concrete (signifing standing fast and firm in the face of fear) that seems to be inside a huge wheeled boat. The person’s arm’s are open wide in a gesture of  “Bring it on, Baby! Is that all you’ve got?!!” They have fire flaring out all around them signifying fiery energy… the energy of Bravery (Great card for Veteran’s on Veteran’s Day! God Bless them all! Talk about having to push through fear in order to move forward!) , Courage, Will and Determination. And it’s flying in the face of the Beast of Fears! In the foreground, we have the Wheeled Boat forcing it’s way through all that choppy, stormy water/emotions. This signifies Traveling as well as forward momentum. Traveling deliberately through your fears and what scares the hell out of you! Facing your fears with Will, Determination, Courage and Bravery, even if you have to fake it and make yourself appear bigger than you truly feel. Speaking of feelings… I really want you to take notice of the water rushing over the concrete block the person is standing on. Notice how it is coming from behind them? From out of the past or from what is unseen? But then once it reaches the person, all that fiery energy applied to the past and those unseen fears, shows they have used their Bravery, Courage, Will & Determination to head right into that storm and face it head on. Thus turning all that scary dark and even unseen stormy water/emotion into liquid Gold! By using Bravery, Will and sheer Determination to travel right into the fray; facing their fears  and not looking back, with Will and Determination… even having to force themselves to push through that fear, they have transformed that very fearful emotion and turned it into something of value (the liquid Gold). By facing our fears head on we gain control of them.  Then we can use that power the fear used to have over us and turn it into something we can use to take control over it. That fiery energy  we need to give us Bravery,  Courage, Motivation and Self-Esteem in order to travel through our Journey and lives with Confidence and Fearlessness. If you find that fear is holding you back, use the power of THE CHARIOT to move you forward and right through those fears. Become THE CHARIOT!!!

CARD#1 CARD#2  CARD#3

For a change of pace, this week I’ve decided to do something a little different than usual. All you need to do is concentrate on this question: “What energy do I most need to connect with this week?” Then choose one card out of the three above to answer the question. This will be your own personal Reading for this week. Now, scroll down to the pictures of the front of the cards. Find the card you picked; CARD #1, CARD #2 or CARD #3. Now, read the meaning of your card to answer the question.

 

 

Card #1

SECOND CHAKRA ARCHANGEL ARIEL

Intimacy And Creativity

The second chakra vibrates in the energy of the beautiful angel Ariel. She sends a bright orange energy, promoting inspired creativity and greater comfort with intimacy. When this card appears upright, it’s urging you to get creative. Let yourself reach out into unexplored areas of self-expression and new projects that may have a more creative approach. This is also a time when the energies of closeness with others – and nurturing yourself – can flow more freely. You can now open yourself to the emotional intimacy that may be coming your way. So nurture yourself and be ready to receive the affection and camaraderie of the resonant souls around you.

            AFFIRMATION:              “My second chakra is open to its perfect, healthy state. I am creative and self-nurturing, more and more comfortable with the gentle waves of intimacy coming my way.”

 

Card #2

ANGEL OF BALANCE

Being Centered and Self-Honoring in Your Choices

This loving presence holds a pitcher of liquid in front of the pyramids, reminding you that a strong destiny relies on a solid foundation of personal balance and emotional equanimity. Although things may have been out of sync in the past, this card is telling you that a greater equilibrium is now coming to your life. Remain conscious about how you are balancing your goals and your physical and emotional energy as well. Whenever you feel yourself getting off center or losing focus, call upon this beautiful angel and bring her intention into your heart center. Your intuition will lead you in the right direction, and the angel will guide you to a peaceful and centered approach.

              AFFIRMATION:                “I live a balanced and centered life. As I care for myself, the Universe cares for me also.”

 

Card #3

ENVY

Lack, Dissatisfaction

This card shows a woman holding a huge pearl in one hand and a platter of coins and pearls in the other. She stands in a silver room looking out at a golden city on the horizon. She has a life of value already, but she ignores that and longs for the shining prosperity she sees elsewhere. Instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, her desire for more only causes a deep sense of lack and dissatisfaction, and that energy shows in her dress. This card is telling you to let go of the jealousy and acknowledge the blessings you already have in your life. Now is the time to shift your focus. After all, when you envy others, it only attracts more to them – not you. Notice all that you have, and thank the Universe for it. Now is the time to move from a consciousness of lack to one of value. With this shift, all things change.

             AFFIRMATION:             “I let go of lack. I look at the blessings in my life with joy and satisfaction. I am glad.”

9 of  Water

The 9 of Water, which in other Tarot decks may be referred to as the 9 of Cups, is one of the best cards in the whole Tarot deck to receive. It is often called the ‘Wish Card’, because when you receive it, it often means that something you have wished for will finally come true!  What a welcome card to see in this week’s 1 Card Tarot Reading! Dreams come true, wishes are fulfilled, completion of something hoped for is very near, enjoyment, contentment, satisfaction with your life and achievement of desires. Perhaps you have been feeling invisible, passed by, stuck in the day-to-day grind with little to celebrate? Well, this week you can let that feeling go, because something you have wished for, longed for, and very often worked long and hard for is finally going to pay-off and be fulfilled. Your efforts will meet with success. Achievement of a goal will be yours! Perhaps a project you have been working on has been close to completion for awhile, but something wasn’t quite right or it just wasn’t coming together like you had hoped. When you see this card, you know satisfaction and completion is right around the corner. If you have been living paycheck to paycheck and have been wishing there was a little something left over for fun, this card indicates that you will have enough to make ends meet as well as a cushion to buy a little something extra, go to the movies, out to dinner, buy something special for yourself or that special person in your life or just to put away for a rainy day. With this card, your wish comes true. But as usual, there is also a bit of a warning with this card. It is like the Genie in the bottle…. “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it! You could end up discovering that it isn’t all it was cracked up to be! You could finally get the job of your dreams just to find out that with the title comes a boat load more work which leaves you with little to no time to spend with family and friends. Or that new guy/gal you had your eye on turns out to be high maintenance, money hungry, a loafer or just all around disagreeable… pretty on the outside but dismal on the inside. Or that fancy new car you’ve had your eye on is finally yours, but the gas bill and insurance make it impossible to afford to drive so you end up still taking the bus anyway. Or you finally saved up enough money for the down payment on your dream house only to find that the payments are so steep that you can’t afford them AND buy groceries. This card also carries a warning that you may be able to afford to go out to dinner more frequently, but you may end up packing on the pounds. So be sure that your goal is something you are ready to take on. But even with all that in mind, the 9 of water is still usually an extremely positive card that states your dreams will come true and there will be reason to celebrate!

  THE MOON

  • Psychic awakening
  • Dreams & things that happen in the shadows, at night or in the dark
  • Intuition & the Imagination
  • Deep revelation of feminine mysteries
  • Withdrawal
  • Facing fears

In honor of the Full Blue Moon we are under as I write this; I decided to re-post my Blog Post #10.

This weeks card is from The Druid Craft Tarot Deck, which is one of my favorite deck’s with a very soulful feel to it. I love to use this deck when I’m doing soul searching. I would imagine that you get that feeling from this card as well.        

THE MOON is all about delving into the unconscious. Digging into our shadow sides and our issues that we have buried deep from the light of our consciousness. This card deals with things that happen at night, in the shadows or in the dark. It shows our loco, primal or crazy side. With THE MOON, we are faced with the scary things we only bring into conscious awareness when the lights are out. Our fears, our demons, our monsters under the bed.  These things crawl out of the abyss of our subconscious and into our awareness as a feeling in the pit of our stomach and won’t let us sleep. If sleep does come, our dreams pick up where our consciousness left off and this is where nightmares are made. But it also has that soulful side of our shadow that I mentioned before. Where we can bring out the ‘real us’ that we don’t let others see for fear they would think us odd, uncivilized or plain loco. It is the side of us that some might consider illogical, irrational, spooky or even downright evil. Not because it is truly evil, but because it isn’t readily acceptable in the light of day or in Western culture. It is our intuition, our gut feelings, our dreams and how we ‘just know’ things without knowing why. These abilities are mysterious to most and often times feared. At times, they even scare ourselves because we feel they come from some other worldly source that we shouldn’t be communicating with. A source unseen that causes fear and a sense of uneasiness in the majority of us.

THE MOON is the card of the Psychic, the Gypsy, the Fortune-teller. It is the card of the mysterious Goddess of the night. The animus and primal in us, the beast or baser instincts within us all. It is also the card of the powerful feminine energy. The cycles in us and the Earth. Mother Nature’s cycles, menstrual cycles, gestational cycles, seasonal cycles, the cycles of the MOON herself, the tide cycles, as well as rites of passage cycles such as aging… the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone.              THE MOON is the sacred feminine. THE MOON is the mysterious female. THE MOON is woman.  On the next full Moon, look at her with your eyes and heart wide open. See her. Really see HER in all her beauty! Her face is full, her lips lush and sensual, her cheeks high and proud and strong. When you aren’t afraid to truly look at her, you can see THE MOON is NOT ‘The Man in the Moon’ at all; but your sacred feminine whom illuminates what lies in the darkest corners of our souls, asking us to see it, recognize it and accept it, and not be afraid!!!

HIGH PRIESTESS

The main keywords for the HIGH PRIESTESS are: Ones inner voice. The great unknown. Inner knowing. Mysterious. Intuition. Hidden Knowledge. Going inside oneself. Solitude. Guardian of the gates of illusion and knowledge. Wisdom. Sound Judgement.on Sense. Serenity. Objectivity. Penetration. Foresight. Perception. Self-Reliance. Platonic Relationships. Yin Energy. Feminine Knowing. Going within. Facing ones shadow side. Gnosis.  Psychic. Witch. Feminine powers of perception.   The HIGH PRIESTESS signifies that you need to honor and accept the guidance of your intuition this week. Trust your inner knowingness, even if you don’t know why you  know what you know. You shouldn’t waste your time trying to seek proof of why you know what you know. Just trust that you do indeed know the truth. She symbolizes inner knowing and knowledge. Perhaps it is time to spend some time alone with yourself to go within in order to find the answers you are looking for to a problem or feeling that has been perplexing you. Or maybe it is now time to get reacquainted with yourself after concentrating way too much on outwardly world issues or caring for others needs. It is possible someone else will come to you for help with a problem they have been having and they trust your inner feminine abilities and intuition. You (or they) seem to always give good advice and seem to know the answers without them even supplying the details. Someone could be attracted to you, but you only have platonic feelings for them and know the relationship will never be more (or vise versa). You could find yourself in a situation where you need to be emotionless and objective in order to give wise counsel or make a good and fair decision. The HIGH PRIESTESS is a mysterious person who seems to know or perceive things without any possible logical way they could know these things. She (or he, as we all have both feminine and male energies within us) has the ability to see right through another person, so don’t try and deceive her (them). She is calm and serene. Probably a loner, but one everyone seems to bring their problems to because they trust her as she always seems to have all the answers. She can be intimidating to others. Not because she thinks she is better than everyone else, but because she sees and knows what is happening on the inside or behind the scenes and this can spook others. How does she do that? She just KNOWS! She can be a Psychic that gives you the willies with her accuracy. A trusted confidant. Your best friend or possibly a new age advisor. But whomever she is, she seems to just KNOW the unknowable. She is asking you to pull back the veil of illusions you have been hiding behind and have the courage to take a good look around you  at what is REALLY going on . To trust your gut feelings. Own your own feminine powers of observation and inner knowing. Polish up your power of intuition.   Seek out or confide in someone you know you can trust because they always seem to see deep behind the curtain of illusions and hidden secrets, and you know, they just KNOW. Whether you need to seek out someone like this, or seek out the HIGH PRIESTESS in yourself; it is time to pull back the veil of the unknown, go within, and find the answers that reside deep within the dark warm cave of yourself.

Three of Cups       

I see this card a the card of celebration, socializing & friendship. entertainment. making a toast. the conclusion of a matter. plenty. perfection.  making merry. happiness. victory . fulfillment. solace. healing. the culmination of something you’ve strived for & with reason to celebrate. female friendship. think the gals from sex & the city…carrie, maranda, sam, & charolet. let’s go out for a drink to celebrate. hanging out. socializing. networking. comadery. a wingman. like minded people who really get you and share your interests.

This suggests something worth celebrating has happened. Or maybe you will be going to an event, a movie, or out to drinks with friends. You may have accomplished something that you had been striving for and are over the Moon about it and want to share the news with those whom have supported you along the way. This is a symbol of hanging out and having a good time. Or hanging out in order to show support when something not so good has happened that put an end to something, like a break-up, a divorce, a job lose, etc. Partying & socializing. This can show groups of people whom support and nurture each other.  It can also indicate threesomes. This can be a really good thing, or a not so good thing.  For a couple when there is a third person and there shouldn’t be, such as an affair going on. Or perhaps a third wheel. Whether you feel like the third wheel, or someone else is tagging along when you’d rather be alone with another person. But all in all, this is a really great card for hanging out with friendly or like minded people whom really ‘get you’ and support you. Being there for each other through thick and thin.They cheer you on and support you, they have your back or you have theirs. Groups of people who share the same interests. Clubs. Teams. Teamwork. A group or gathering of people. Rights of passage culminating in a ceremony such as a Graduation, Wedding, Bridal or Baby shower, “Hail,hail, the gangs all here!” “Hip,hip, hoo-ray!” “Way to go, you really deserved this raise, promotion, or new job. Perhaps you have won an election or  got appointed to some position you were hoping for. This could also be an engagement. Announcing you are pregnant when you’ve been trying for awhile. Anything where something dear to your heart finally happend and you wish to share the news with people who care about you or you care about them. This can also indicate something to do with an on-line network or job. Gamers getting together on-line.  Give and receive kudos or support. A support group, system or team. A meeting to go to or an appointment. Regardless of the occasion, it’s time to celebrate with others. Go out and have some fun! Spend some time with your crew!

            Card # 1: Nine of swords: the situation         

WORRY. ANXIETY. DEPRESSION. MAKING MOUNTAINS OUT OF MOLE HILLS. NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. LETTING OUR FEARS GET THE BEST OF US. INSOMNIA. MENTAL DIS-EASE.    With the nine of swords, we see the effect that worry has on the mind, emotions and body. Something we have done, said, or put in place has us very worried and tied up in knots.  We are restless and we find ourselves tossing and turning all night. No matter what we do or how we try to dismiss these worries that plague us, it’s to no avail. We can’t seem to shake this feeling of doom and gloom or shut off our thoughts and worries. We lay awake… possibly thinking up worse case scenarios in our heads, blowing everything way out of proportion. We have taken a simple thought and created our own monster out of it. We have made a mountain out of a mole hill by building worse and worse outcomes through out the night. Perhaps it was the moon or a bad dream that was playing tricks on us and distorting our usually rational thinking. Things always seem bleakest before the dawn, for whatever reason, our thoughts have gotten way out of hand. What in all likelihood is not even a big deal…  could manifest into an actual problem if we don’t get our thoughts under control. Worrying needlessly can cause mental fatigue, emotional issues, as well as physical ailments such as ulcers, headaches or body aches through tension. The nine of swords is letting you know, whatever you are worrying about isn’t worth losing sleep over. It isn’t likely to happen at all. It’s all in your mind at this point. So let it go, get some rest and everything will play out in your favor once you calm down and deal with it logically in the light of day. Remember, if you think something long enough… it will become real. Thoughts can become manifest. So why not think happy thoughts and manifest something wonderful instead?!!!  You might have found yourself discontent , and over time it has slowly progressed into depression. The same mean comment someone said to you or behind your back keeps playing over and over in your mind and getting louder and louder. Negative thoughts keep tumbling through your head and now you can’t seem to pull yourself out of the depression these things have started in you. You keep playing scene after scene of what could happen in your head, bringing your energy level down and possibly crippling you with fear. Again, the worst case scenerio isn’t likely to happen unless you won’t let it go. You don’t have to forget it so you can protect yourself from going there again, but maybe you should forgive so you can move on. It’s okay to leave the things that no longer serve your highest good behind. Just don’t keep carrying around the pain… it won’t bring you peace. So, find the silver lining in even the toughest situations in order to heal, learn and move on into a positive state. Everything looks better in the light of day!

            Card # 2: mythic reality: advice         

Something is causing you concern at present because you are viewing the situation from only one perspective. Look with an open heart and mind and you may see that a positive side also exists. Things may very well turn in your favor if you let go of preconceived ideas and rigid views. There are at least two perspectives from which to view every situation. What you see at present is only part of the picture. Often, what seems real to us may not necessarily be what is actually occurring. The true purpose of many of life’s events is often unclear because of our false assumptions, fears and misconceptions. There is no need for concern; just allow things to naturally unfold and all will become clear to you. Remember, you may not have the power to change the world or even many of the events in your life, but you have the power to change your perception of them. “All becomes clear when I view it from a higher perspective.”

People know your name because your skill and work have earned you a good reputation in the business or work force. If this hasn’t happened for you just yet, it’s only a matter of time before it does. Keep putting your best efforts into your work and it will reap it’s own rewards! If you have been struggling to learn a new skill or task, this is a heads up that you have or will soon master it. You may not even know people are taking notice of your work and efforts, but they are and will soon make it known and reward you for it. Keep up the good work and you will be recognized and rewarded! Congrats!!!

Seven of Wands

This week’s Blog post Tarot Card is the Seven of Wands. Defending what’s yours. Keep on Keeping on. Don’t rest on your laurels. Others wanting what you have. Fighting to retain your position. The perils of being on top. The courage to go where angels fear to thread. Keeping your nose to the grindstone in order to keep ahead and stay on top. Courage. Bravery. “Back the heck up!” Fighting off the competition. Now that you are on top, the need to defend your position. ‘Keep on truckin’.’ Don’t let up now! This is the gits of what the Seven of Wands is telling you. You have succeeded at something you have wanted and now all your admirers are envious of you. They want what you have and are trying to knock you down and take your place. Others envy what you have and now they want it for themselves. So, this card is telling you, even though you have finally made progress or even succeeded at gaining a victory on a goal you had been hoping to achieve… now you have to continue that same pace and effort it took to acquire it in the first place in order to keep it. Isn’t it the way of humanity? Others cheer you on and support you when you’re trying to accomplish something and are the under dog. They cheer and applaud you when you succeed and win. But then they get jealous and envious of your success and want to take what you have or bring you down from your higher position. You can’t just shake your head and ignore them. They will topple you from the position you have worked long and hard at acquiring. You need to be vigilant and watch your back for others trying to take what you have. You need to keep working as hard at keeping what you have gained as you did at acquiring it in the first place. You can’t say “I did it! Now I can relax!” Nope!!!! There is always someone nipping at your heels ready to take your place. So don’t let up on your pace and don’t rest on your laurels. You need to keep working just as hard as you did to succeed in the first place, in order to keep it or advance further. On the up side of this card, it does show that you have succeeded in gaining a position or goal that you had worked long and hard for. You have made it and are now on top of things. That is a really good feeling and incentive to keep on excelling and pushing for your next goal. So keep on keeping on… keep doing what you’ve been doing at the pace you’ve been doing it. You may have to go where angels fear to thread and have the courage of David; but if you keep your nose to the grindstone, you too can get on top and stay there!!!

THE WORD WANTS TO BE WRITTEN

You might have been taught, creativity is something you have to work hard to access, or that finding your life purpose is so difficult that you must search high and low for it. Yet what you are is within you and wants to come out at every available opportunity! You don’t have to struggle so much. It is more about allowing space for it to manifest and to let the energy flow. The real struggle is not in finding something. It is more about letting go of the idea that you need to search for your path in the first place. You see, the process of activating your life path is a natural one. The effort is in getting out of the way, not in making something happen.
As for being yourself, that is the foundation from which your true life path will reveal itself. Being your self becomes easier when you give yourself permission to love, honor and except yourself in all circumstances, especially the ones where you might be more tempted to reject and judge. Give the sacred rebel within the opportunity to decide your values-irrespective of whether they meet with general social acceptance.
This Oracle brings you the message that what you are dreaming of or seeking to do, create, live or manifest, it’s actually very natural for you. That is why you want to do it.
If you experienced controlling and manipulative forces as you were growing up, you would have found it hard to access your natural state at that time. You would have been too busy trying to adapt and get through the trials of childhood.
When you finished navigating childhood and started to let go of who you were taught to be in order to become who you really are, you may have found your life path was not easily accessible. That is simply because your true and natural self was covered by layers of shame from that early conditioning that you had to be other than you are in order to win love or be acceptable.
However, that natural self hasn’t gone anywhere. It is still there within you. Now it is just about chipping away at the walls of shame, perhaps with a defiant, “who the hell cares, I am here and I am going to love myself anyway.” This allows you to risk sharing the feeling of any shame that arises as you release old emotional wounds and break away from any restraints to unconditional self-love. The sacred rebel within can empower you to love yourself no matter what, simply because you want to. You might decide to declare, “I am still lovable-so put that in your pipe and smoke it!” This will send an energetic message to whom ever shamed you in the first place, whether they meant to or not. Your message could be going to a parent, school teacher, sibling, friend, lover or anyone else that was struggling enough with their own shame wound that they couldn’t help but dump it on you. You can be freed to realize that the shame is just an emotion, not a truth, and you can defy any hold it has ever had on you and your ability to love yourself. This oracle brings you the guidance that you are now powerful enough to break the cycle. It is time to stop the shame and claim your self in love instead.
What you want to write, sing, dance or become, is in you. It is natural. Drop your defenses, get into the grit and confront the power that any old shaming has over you. It’s finished now. It is time for you to be naked with your self, acknowledge how gorgeous you are and get on with your work. Life is urging you to do so, because the work wants to happen. What you want to create, wants to be created. The word wants to be written. You just need to let go of any remnants of the past that have been in your way. Step firmly over them and on to your path.
