KALI

Meanings of this card are: Your current changes are for the best ~ Keep your thoughts positive, as they’re very powerful ~ What appears to be a loss is really the beginnings of a happy new phase ~ Let the past go ~ It’s time to move  on.                                                                                                                                                                                                     

“Do not fear what appears to be a change or a loss. It’s only the transitioning orbit of energy interplaying with you and your loved ones. Embrace it as evidence that you’re alive! Embrace your deepest emotions as a signal of your true human essence!”                                                                                                                                                                                                    

About Kali: (pronounced KAL~ee): This ultra-powerful Hindu goddess is feared by those who don’t understand the natural cycles of birth, death, and rebirth. Kali is the embodiment of Mother Nature, who cleanses away the old with natural storms and fires to make the ground fertile for new crops and life. Kali is the ultimate get-things-done goddess, and she’s a powerful ally to those who call upon her. Like a wise stage mother, she’ll push you beyond your comfort zone to reach the heights of your potential.

FAITH IN THE PROCESS

Faith in the process:
No matter how powerful we are, how much courage and strength we have, there are times when we can’t quite move ourselves along to the next phase of life or creative exploration. At such times we need some divine intervention-a little help in pulling our trolley along, so to speak. When we are at the edge of our own limits and have no more personal resources, we might be left with only one spiritual power, that of faith. Fortunately that is enough.

As unlikely as it may seem, the invisible help from the universe is often more powerful than the physical efforts of a thousand men. That is because the invisible help is not limited by physical laws. It can shift, bend and move in ways that the defy limitation. It can effect, evoke and influence situations through invisible, but undeniably persuasive means.

You’re in a situation where you cannot ‘set right’ the course of events all by yourself. This is not an indication that you have done something wrong, nor does this suggest that you are not strong enough. It is a sign that there is something bigger unfolding in your life and your willpower will be supplemented by the power of life itself. Sometimes a bigger plan needs to manifest for the benefit of humanity and the earth. You need to shift your perspective to realize that you are part of the greater unfoldment of life, that your individual life serves the greater plan and that you were not separate from its genius. This is what is happening now. You happen to be instrumental to the greater plan and as such, you need to accept your position and be moved, while also being empowered and protected as you make personal progress through your role in that grander scheme.

This is a time for humility and trust. You need complete faith in the processes and events that are happening. There is nothing to worry about, you will be moved most fully and easily, and with the most grace and assistance, through your faithful surrender. Ironically , It is through complete surrender, and total faith, that we become the most empowered. When we no longer are trying to impede the perfection of the greater plan, we can be aligned with and moved by the process. Having faith in the benevolence of life- rather than harboring the suspicion that life is seeking to catch us out. Have a joke at our expense or carelessly toss us about as though we mean nothing- then we can relax a little. Having faith in the process gives you space to be curious about what is taking place and to relax enough to be open to what we are most in need of, even if we aren’t exactly sure what that is or how it can happen. The guidance from this Oracle comes direct from the greater source of life itself. There is now an opportunity for you to be moved from the situation you are currently in, to the next chapter in your life story. You can’t do it on your own. It is too big of a shift. It needs the grace of life to intervene on your behalf.

You will need faith though. You may feel as though the wheels of your trolley are coming off or that they are a bit rickety, but you must also understand that the voice of life is now coming straight to your heart with this message:

“I have resources you know not of. It is safe to trust in my ways and in my wisdom, for I love you and I am guiding you into all that is rightfully yours. Know that what is rightfully yours is what your heart truly desires and you need not fear loss. Nothing that is meant to come to you will be denied and it is safe for you to let go and allow me to move you.”

Through Faith, peace is restored and you are able to know this, and perhaps have some fun in the process.

The Healing Process

Say aloud: “I now ask that all disappointing experiences of the past that have led me to believe that life is not trustworthy or that faith is a silly or immature way to deal with life, be released from my mind, body and heart . I ask for help to accept that I can and will attract all that is needed into my life, at the perfect time and in the perfect way. I asked to be empowered to absolutely receive all that can assist me with gratitude and without shame or guilt. In doing so, I dedicate myself to be a clear, loving, open channel for the flow of life. I know the benefit in doing so is not limited to me, but will flow so that life can benefit others through me. I trust in this now, through unconditional love, so be it.”

You have completed your healing process. If needed, repeat the above prayer each day to help you boost your confidence that everything can and will sort itself out, whether you feel in control or not. In fact, it can do so more easily when you don’t feel in control.

  • 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
  • Serenity & Tranquility

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!!! She is soft, she is nurturing, she is tranquil, serene and as soothing as a lullaby.

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. But she is also responsible for our soft, nurturing even, ‘Motherly’ side. Think of an image of a sleeping baby with it’s Mother gazing lovingly down on her sweet babe. The babe knows it is safe and protected with it’s Mother close by. This is also the nature of The Moon. She is both Light and Dark. She can light our way on the darkest of nights and give us safe passage over rough terrain. She is strong and ferocious, yet she is soft and kind. She is the feminine, she is woman in all her phases and wearing all her faces.

The Last JUDGEMENT

  • A “WAKE UP!” call from the  Universe
  • Finding one’s Soul Purpose
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Using Good Judgement

This week’s Tarot Blog Post Card JUDGEMENT is like a big Universal Alarm clock. You may have been just going through the motions, barely awake and barely getting by. Get up, go to work, go to bed… shampoo, rinse, repeat. Same old, same old. This card is telling you there is more to life. Stop staggering through life on auto-pilot, half asleep. JUDGEMENT is the sign that the Universe (symbolized by the  cross and angel  on the card, and if you look close,there is a bugle or blow horn the angel is blowing so you WILL hear it’s message loud and clear) is sending  you a message. A wake up call. “WAKE UP!!!” This is your notification that it’s time to wake up and answer Spirit’s call. It is also a reminder to take personal responsibility. Not only for yourself and your family, but for the betterment of your fellow man/woman/child and the World as a whole. You are being asked to do the right thing, even when it’s hard or not the popular choice. Have the courage to do what’s right. When making decisions, use good judgement and common sense. Don’t do something just because everyone else is doing it or because it’s expected of you.  Do it because it’s the right thing to do. Do it for the greater good. Act smart, don’t just re-act. Teach that to your kids and Grand kids too.  But mainly, you are being asked to awaken to your Souls True Purpose (yep, all in caps because it’s that important). To step up and claim your duty to yourself and the World and fulfill your mission here on Earth. It is telling you, rather than just going through the motions in your life, it is now time to take it upon yourself to do what you were put on this earth to do. To answer your Souls cry for meaning and purpose. Have you always felt a nagging deep in your heart that there is something you were just meant to do or be doing? But maybe you felt it wasn’t practical or you felt silly even thinking about it let alone actually doing it? Do you have a gift that you haven’t been using in the real World or have been doing ‘just for fun’? Maybe you sing… in the shower, but you do it really well? Perhaps you paint beautifully but don’t think your work is good enough to sell. Do you aspire to be a Writer but you only write in your journal or leave the stories in your head? Do you have a vast knowledge of herbs or healing but don’t do anything with that knowledge? Do you wake up in the middle of the night at the same time every night and look at the clock and it reads 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44… that’s Spirit sending you a message that it’s time to wake up and answer your Souls calling. Spirit has been at it for a very long time. When you were a kid, what did you play? House? Doctor? Fireman? Police person? Nurse? Food Prep? Etc… Chances are, that is your Soul’s purpose for this life time. It may not be calling you to a career change necessarily, but perhaps a change into your True character. Whichever, Spirit is telling you it is time for a rebirth. For you to become the person you were truly intended to be. To become the authentic you, not the identity of the mask that you are expected to wear for others sake or expectations, but the REAL YOU. Time to drop the mask and show the World who you really are. Step into your true identity and dare to be you! It’s time for a change in YOU!!!

Knight of Wands

  • Speedy movement, momentum, energy, Travel (especially by land or inland, a change of residence, loves to go FAST, Herald of change for the better coming soon, Things that happen quickly
  • “Let’s GO!!!”, I Can do ANYTHING attitude, “Just DO IT!”
  • Impatient, Risk taker, Hasty, Restless, Quick Tempered
  • Charming, Handsome, Passionate, Adventurous, Lover of change, Young man (woman or someone whom embodies this energetic energy) 25-35 years old, Zodiac Fire signs of Aries, Leo or Sagittarius.

This week’s Tarot Blog Post is all about the Knight of Wands is usually a really good card to see in a Tarot Reading. He can herald good changes in events comings soon. He is full of excitement, optimism for the near future and can indicate a trip or travel, usually by land is in the offerings this week. Are you planning  an adventure or vacation this week or visiting somewhere hot or going to go see someone … like a ‘hottie’?!!! Regardless, this person is someone who loves an adventure and is filled with excitement at the thought of doing something they have never tried before, going somewhere they haven’t been before, or even moving into a new place. They just love a change of scenery, change of residence, change of people and places, change of pace… usually a fast pace at that. They just love change in general. They are charming, good looking, the life of the party, and they have so much enthusiasm towards life and everything they do that it is contagious to everyone they come in contact with. They just love a good cause and are good at recruiting others to come along for the ride. They are fun loving and passionate, so expect a good time whenever they are around. They love taking risks just for the fun of it, so you may see them at the racetrack, skydiving, dirt biking, climbing the tallest and most challenging mountain around or skinny dipping in broad daylight just to see if they can get away with it. They know no limits, so they believe they can accomplish ANYTHING, and they are usually right.  Everything they do is done with a flourish and fast pace and they love making grand gestures! This Knight is the one you will see on the big screen at the baseball game proposing to his girl in living color. Singing Karaoke at the Bar and actually nailing every note even better than the recording star does. They drive a fast car and have a glove box full of unpaid speeding tickets because they don’t think rules and regulations apply to them and really, with a wink and a smile, they get away with A LOT!!! They have a devil-may-care attitude and an impish grin that can melt the coldest of hearts. They will sweep you off your feet and make made passionate love to you and leave you breathless. BUT… if you don’t play the game when they want or by their rules or you try to make them play by yours,  you’ll see all that hot passionate energy directed right back at you! They are quick to anger, and are probably the guy at the Bar who gets in a brawl because someone looked at his girlfriend for to long. They will become sulky and sullen if you turn them down for a date or need to work instead of going on one of their wild hair-brained adventures. But before you know it, with their charm and power of persuasion, they’ve talked you into changing the rules to THEIR rules, or they’ve talked you into ditching work, responsibilities or other prior plans to go play. And before you know it they’re all smiles again because life is great and it’s going just the way they planned it… THEIR WAY!!! You find yourself wondering, “How did they do that?!!!” as you’re going 90 miles an hour right past your place of work! Remember, the Knight of Wands is usually a young man, but can be anyone, including yourself. So, you may find that you are feeling invincible, a bit reckless, on top of the World, or like you have super powers and can achieve ANYTHING! You’ll have the power of persuasion, charm, the SUN itself on your side this week. Or you may find yourself on a sudden unplanned road trip or adventure or making love like you were 20 again in the backseat of your car! Whatever happens, it will be fast and exciting because this is the Prince of Fire after all, and he likes to burn hot and fast! So hang on to your hat and get ready for some excitement, because whenever you see this card in your Reading, expect change, movement, expect the unexpected, and expect it fast and furious!

                                    Banrion of Uisce

This week’s card is Banrion of Uisce, also known as The Queen of Hearts as well as the Queen of Cups,  because she presides over the realm of the emotions & psychic plane. She is the nurturer, the comforter, beauty itself, mysterious, intuitive, soul dweller, the seer, the knower, the feminine… Maiden, Wife, Mother. She ‘knows’ & sees into the very depths of our souls without any physical ‘proof’ … this is called Gnosis. She Rules the outer world by using her feelings and intuition rather than logic, facts and figures. She leads  and makes decisions with her heart, not her head. She is mysterious and you may never really be able to know or access all faucets of her. So this week, the Banrion of Uisce is asking you to go within yourself… spend some quiet time by yourself. Meditate. Spend some time soul searching and don’t be afraid to really FEEL. Use your feelings and instincts this week to make decisions or assess situations and people. The Banrion of Uisce is telling you to follow your heart. Use your senses. Feel, see, hear with your heart.  Use your intuition and gut reactions this week in order to ‘feel’   your way forward on your journey through life. She asks you to open your heart.  To accept the abundance readily available to us all by being open to receiving as well as giving  love. Seeing her this week is also a cue that it is time to nurture  and Mother yourself. Don’t give so much of yourself away to others that you have nothing left for or of yourself. You can’t give of yourself if you have nothing left to give.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Make Better Choices

~     Card #1          ~         

Have you ever heard the saying “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over hoping to get different results”? Well, it’s true, and it especially applies to you at this time. Whatever you do brings about specific results-if you don’t like them, you need only change your behavior.

Your soul’s purpose right now is to connect all results in your life directly with your choices, and blame no one but yourself for these experiences. Although this may sound extreme, it’s the basis of real freedom. If you’re willing to make better decisions, you can create new and more satisfying outcomes. But if you don’t, be assured that the consequences will stay the same.

Your soul’s lesson: examine the results of your life today. Identify which ones satisfy you and which ones don’t, which behaviors work and those that need to change. For example, where you experience people as defensive, is your behavior confrontational? Where you see others as aggressive and demanding, are you acting passive and non-assertive? Where you’re being bullied, how are you conducting yourself-and where you’re the bully, how are you behaving?

If you really want to try something exciting, change your actions so that you’re loving others and yourself. The picture of your life will suddenly shift from shades of gray to beautiful living color… You’ll see.

Laugh at your Demons

~       Card #2         ~

In what area of your life are you feeling miserable and unable to find your way out? Where have you been judging yourself or another so harshly that you see no means of forgiveness? What are you hiding from or covering up, afraid that you’ll be found out? In what area of your life have you lost all sense of humor?

Your soul’s purpose right now is to restrain your critical ego and return to the love of your heart Yourself. Be aware of every aspect of your life in which you feel stuck, and recognize this is only appearance. All things will be solved in time.

Your souls lesson; break free from the psychic bondage that arises from your overly judgmental ego. Feel the low-quality vibration that such doom, gloom, and harshness brings about. Ease up on yourself-nothing is that bad. Deconstruct the energetic barbed-wire fence around your heart, and turn off the psychic “go away” sign that you flash at the world.

As intense as your present situation may seem, and as bad as you feel, know that your Higher Self will guide you if you let it. Seek your spirit’s clear perspective by activating your humor, blessing your mess, and trusting that it will all straightened out. As you laugh, be certain that it will.

Live from your Spirit

 ~    Card #3           ~

If you feel that everything you’re doing right now isn’t working, or that every situation you face is working against you, be glad! Believe it or not, on a soul level you’re simply entering a major learning curve. The only thing blocking you is thinking too much, instead of just following your spirit. The more your soul asserts itself, the more you must respond from your Higher Self.

View all aggravating circumstances as an invitation to grow and flex your Divine muscles. Stop laminating, “why is this happening to me?” As though life is unfair. The awakened soul knows that isn’t the case: life just is-it’s your response that decides the outcome. Stay connected to your Higher Self rather than drowning in drama. Above all, take a close look at how much of your behavior is simply an unsavory, unconscious ‘goulash’ of conditioning acquired from childhood, peer pressure, the media, society, or even past lives, and not a reflection of your true spirit.

Your soul’s purpose right now is to eliminate all the overthinking and negative habits that clog your judgment, Hijack your freedom, and victimize you. Instead, use the power of your Higher Self.

Your soul’s lesson: stop playing the victim of circumstance. Focus, learn, and choose to respond appropriately when confronted with life’s challenges.

KING of WATER: ~Benevolent~Compassionate~Emotional Responsibility~

~A Bard, Priest, Minister or Spiritual Leader~

~Knowledgeable~Stable~ ~Fatherly or Grandfatherly~Kind~

~Considerate~Authority in Arts & Sciences~

Poet~Musician~Artistic~ ~Compassionate Doctor Whom Listens~

~In Touch with His Feelings~Emotional Control~Trustworthy~

The King of Water, more commonly called the King of Cups, is a Benevolent fellow. He has only the best interests in mind for everyone he comes in contact with. This card can indicate a wonderfully kind Gentleman you will encounter this week, or your own energy that you will need to bring to the forefront this week. If you’ve seen the movie, ‘The Little Mermaid’, you will understand and recognize his energy as King Triton., Ariel’s Dad. He tries to protect her and give her the Fatherly advice that he feels is in her best interest. To bestow upon her all his knowledge acquired through years of experience. This is the energy of the King of Water. (Which she abruptly ignored and got into all sorts of trouble before finally finding her way BTW!!!) This may be the case with your own kids or someone close to you that just has to learn the hard way even though you tried your best to reason with them… or maybe you are the one ignoring perfectly good advice from a benevolent friend or family member? Just know that they have your best interests in mind. Or if you find yourself in the role of the benevolent parent or friend, hopefully your advice will be taken to heart and applied. But sometimes, we have to step aside and let others find there own way… even if that means doing nothing but praying for their protection while we stand by and watch with awaiting open arms for when they fall flat on their face! Is all hell breaking out around you? It is your task to stay calm and be the voice of reason. If on the other hand, your world is in chaos and you need the voice of calm, controlled reason… you are being asked to find this in yourself or to accept the helping hand of another who has the knowledge or the experience you need just now. If this is a person in your life or whom you will encounter this week, consider yourself lucky. You can trust this person with your whole self. They have the best emotional advice and the kindest yet stable energy about them and they can help you find the best way forward for you. If you find you just need a shoulder to cry on… this is your guy. If you are exploring your depths and need an outlet of expression, you will find this through music, photography, painting, poetry,  writing or the Arts. If you find yourself in need of physical healing… this is just the Doc you need. A good listener, kind, caring and considerate with excellent bedside manner whom you can trust their instructions or advice. As a mate or Lover, you will find this person a real catch, but be forewarned… it does come with a price. This person will take very good care of you and have only your best interests at heart, but you may find them a little distant with their own emotions. As if they are holding back on you. It’s not that they don’t love you, because they do with their whole heart. They would do anything to ensure your happiness… it’s just that they must stay in emotional control at all times. Just consider yourself lucky to be under this persons wing and go with it.! This could literally be your Father, Grandfather or someone with this kind of knowledgeable energy. Lucky you!

JUDGEMENT

  • A “WAKE UP!” call from the  Universe
  • Finding one’s Soul Purpose
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Using Good Judgement

The Tarot Card JUDGEMENT is like a big Universal Alarm clock. You may have been just going through the motions, barely awake and barely getting by. Get up, go to work, go to bed… shampoo, rinse, repeat. Same old, same old. This card is telling you there is more to life. Stop staggering through life on auto-pilot, half asleep. JUDGEMENT is the sign that the Universe (symbolized by the spiritualized cross/angel combo in purple on the card, and if you look close, the bottom of this spirit-cross, flares out at the bottom like a bugle or blow horn so you WILL hear it’s message loud and clear) is send you a message. A wake up call. “WAKE UP!!!” This is your notification that it’s time to wake up and answer Spirit’s call. It is also a reminder to take personal responsibility. Not only for yourself and your family, but for the betterment of your fellow man/woman/child and the World as a whole. You are being asked to do the right thing, even when it’s hard or not the popular choice. Have the courage to do what’s right. When making decisions, use good judgement and common sense. Don’t do something just because everyone else is doing it or because it’s expected of you.  Do it because it’s the right thing to do. Do it for the greater good. Act smart, don’t just re-act. Teach that to your kids and Grand kids too.  But mainly, you are being asked to awaken to your Souls True Purpose (yep, all in caps because it’s that important). To step up and claim your duty to yourself and the World and fulfill your mission here on Earth. It is telling you, rather than just going through the motions in your life, it is now time to take it upon yourself to do what you were put on this earth to do. To answer your Souls cry for meaning and purpose. Have you always felt a nagging deep in your heart that there is something you were just meant to do or be doing? But maybe you felt it wasn’t practical or you felt silly even thinking about it let alone actually doing it? Do you have a gift that you haven’t been using in the real World or have been doing ‘just for fun’? Maybe you sing… in the shower, but you do it really well? Perhaps you paint beautifully but don’t think your work is good enough to sell. Do you aspire to be a Writer but you only write in your journal or leave the stories in your head? Do you have a vast knowledge of herbs or healing but don’t do anything with that knowledge? Do you wake up in the middle of the night at the same time every night and look at the clock and it reads 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44… that’s Spirit sending you a message that it’s time to wake up and answer your Souls calling. Spirit has been at it for a very long time. When you were a kid, what did you play? House? Doctor? Fireman? Police person? Nurse? Food Prep? Etc… For me it was Nun. Always the little Spiritual helper and advisor! ~to be continued, in the yellow print, below or beside, depending on your device~…

As far as healing? I spent many hours out in the shop with my Father while he created beautiful Gemstone Jewelry to bring in money during the slow time when he wasn’t working construction, for his side home business, The Treasure Chest. And, I used to heal my friends boo-boos by laying my hands over their wounds… I didn’t  know why at the time, it just felt right.For me it has always been my gift of inner knowing and healing that I’ve been prompted to bring out into the World. But for the longest time, I just used this gift for myself or close friends and relatives. There’s a reason I’m 57 and just recently created my dream, PurpleSwanTarot.com. I felt my calling inside, but I wasn’t ANSWERING the call until recently. Spirit started off with subtle hints and synchronities but I just wasn’t getting it. But the prompting just kept getting louder and harder to ignore until Spirit was using a blow horn to get my attention. Spirit was literally putting articles, websites and books in front of me. Then with a hunger for more, I started frequenting Book Stores in person and a Tarot Deck literally fell off the shelf and onto my toe… ouch!!! FINALLY, I got Spirit’s message and I answered THE CALL. And here I am… putting my Souls Purpose to work in the real World with your help and hopefully helping you awaken to yours. It can work the same for you. Spirit has been leaving you clues as to what your Souls Purpose is for decades!  JUDGEMENT isn’t in your cards today by accident. You are here on my website reading this right now as Spirit’s message for you to “WAKE UP!!!” Hear YOUR call and ANSWER it!!! Put your Souls Purpose to work out there in the real World. Live it. Share it. Put it to use. Step up. Own it. Make the World a better place because you are in it! I hope you’ve enjoyed my Tarot Blog Post #52…. we’ve been doing this a whole year now!!! Happy 1st year in Biz Anniversary to us!!!
