The women’s group I’m in discussed magical vision boards last night, so this card follows along well! For your weekend, perhaps it’s good to dedicate some time to figuring out how to make your dream a reality – or perhaps you just need some time to be creative.

Have a great weekend!

Spider Spirit – Make your dreams real

Message: Weaving your dreams into the fabric of life begins with a single thread of intention, and then spirit joins you as your co-weaving partner. Take but a single step to make your dream a reality, and Spirit will take ten toward you, for the universe is designed to support your dream-weaving.

Spirit Spirit arrives when you need reminding of the awesome power of co-creation with Spirit. Ideas and resources will begin to appear as if by magic as you begin to bring your dreams from the realm of intention into the world of the senses where they take form. The action you need to take is to be clear about your intentions, and then act as if you have become the one that lives the life you desire. The web of creation has an uncanny way of coming together to weave the beautiful pattern you set in motion.

Another message of Spider Spirit is about any creative project you may be considering: Writing, painting, music, journaling, gardening, etc. Now is the time when inspiration wants to be channeled through you at something creative, even artistic and tangible. Creative projects are successful now, if you are so inclined. Let yourself be open to abundance.

Protection Message: Are you expecting your dreams to weave themselves into reality? Are you stuck in the sticky web of weaving dreams, but never following through? The thread of Intention isn’t enough to make dreams a frailty unless you do your part in the weaving. Spider want you to know that your plans will remain ephemeral unless you commit to being productive and industrious, for Spirit will not do it all for you. Magic needs to be instigated, so begin to make your dream a reality by taking action today.

What are you will do to do? what are you willing to sacrifice? Can you release your limiting beliefs? Your dream is worthy of weaving. Today is a day to choose one small step toward your dream. Remember, Spirit is your weaving partner; you just have to be the first one to bring the thread to the loom, then continue to do your part.

Sometimes it is important to forgive yourself and let yourself move on from past mistakes or perceived failings. Take a few moments today to consider if you are holding on to these things and then let them go!

Blessings!

Wash Away All Your Burdens

As you have move through life, you have undoubtedly experienced moments that have inspired feelings of regret, remorse, shame, and guilt. You have made promises you have not been able to keep. You have judged and blamed yourself and others. You have burdened yourself with feelings born of acts that cannot be undone, which still bind you to the past. It is time to forgive. It is time to lie down in the healing waters and let them wash away your burdens so you can move forward with spirit cleansed.

I had two strong cards this morning (Flowing River – don’t resist the flow of life – was also a strong one), but Elder stood out. It’s time to step and lead, whether it is at home, at work, or in an group or organization.

Blessings and have a great weekend!

Meaning: Confidence, entering your power, and standing strong. You are a leader. Stepping into the light. Let your truth be heard and felt by others. Make a stand in life. You carry deep inner wisdom. You are a teacher and a leader in the deepest sense of the words. You are a beacon for others.

Native Spirit Wisdom: In native culture, the elders, tribal chiefs, and clan leaders are looked to for advice and leadership. When this card chooses you, it’s time to step into your leadership role. An elder walks the path, stomps the grass down, and throws the boulders out of the way so that the path is easier for others. Sometimes you might find yourself alone or tired, but know that what you’re doing is making a difference in the lives of many. The greatest leaders are those who know how to serve, supporting others to reach their dreams. Even if you’ve been in the background in the past, right now it’s your turn to step forward and become the light for others.

The Journey: Being an elder and a tribal leader means speaking your truth, even if it’s hard or even if you’re afraid. If there’s anyone you need to stand up to, this is the time. Being a leader means supporting others, so there’s anyone you need to support or make amends with, this is the time.

Maybe it’s the cool mornings that make me reach for the Halloween Oracle, but this is a good one regardless.

Blessings!

SKULL OF LIGHT – Illumination

We can stay in the dark
Exist only in the midnight hours
But shining the torch
The victory is ours

As the famous psychotherapist Jung suggested, knowing our own darkness helps us cope with the darkness of others. Taking the time to “know thyself” and to seek understanding of our more destructive or shadow natures can lead to huge happiness and less anxiety.

The idea of being shown the way in the most difficult of times and always knowing that we are never alone in the darkness are the keys to this magical element. Light is usually a comforting thing, yet sometimes we do not really want to see the boogie man under the bed! It is too scary, too big, and we know not how to defeat it. By simply shining the torch upon such darkness, the victory is ours.

Should the Skull of Light enter your life, know that it is time to build yourself fully to the clarity of bright illumination. Allow yourself to be seen, to see, and to act upon what is shown to you. The time has passed for hiding, for pretending, and for swallowing our discomfort by accepting the status quo when it really doesn’t suit us.

Good Friday morning! Here’s an excellent card for the weekend! Even if you are being careful during the pandemic, sometimes you can visit a friend sitting a bit apart and with masks (but still with tea or coffee) or call or message them. The weekend is traditionally for relaxation and socialization, so don’t forget a friend you maybe haven’t contacted in a while. You never know, you might make their week!

Blessings!

Tea and Coffee

Keywords and phrases: Good will, harmony, chat, companionship, social events, friends and friendliness, community

Meaning: Friendship

In the charming image, two ladies, Tea and Coffee, are enjoying those drinks and each other’s company. Tea, who is Chinese, wears the traditional Chinese outfit of tunic and trousers, the tunic composed of the leaves and yellow flowers of the actual tea plant. Her left hand rests on a teapot; in her right hand, she holds a delicate white cup upon which has alighted an enormous fly who, it would appear, is also a tea lover. Coffee, on the other hand, is European. She is drinking a cup of her favorite brew. Beside her is a tall coffeepot and at her feet there is a coffee grinder. The atmosphere is one of pleasant relaxation. The insects are an unusual, though typically Grandvillesque, addition to the scene.

This card is about finding and valuing friendship. “To attract good fortune, spend a new penny on an old friend, share an old pleasure with a new friend, and lift up the heart of a true friend by writing his name on the wings of a dragon.” This advice, contained in a Chinese proverb, is more easily offered than followed, especially the last bit. Having said that, one’s name on the wings of a dragon does sound a rather fine thing, especially when you bear in mind that Chinese dragons are, usually, bringers of happiness and good fortune. Spending a new penny on an old friend? That is okay, of course, as long as you remember it’s the thought that counts, not the money (or perhaps, account for inflation), and, while we are in proverbial mood, that the best things in life are free. Sharing an old pleasure with a new friend may be something as simple and satisfying as having a cup of tea or coffee and a good chat with them. In short, this card is a reminder that it is good to treasure our friends and to share with them.  Life is busy; we have jobs, studies, love affairs, children. In all this, friends can get sidelined. Try not to let this happen.

If you want to find new friends, where to look? Apart from simply going out to social events, you could acquire a pen pal, possibly in another country; this can open up a whole new world, as well as enabling you to practice your language skills. A variation of this is the key pal, someone you community with via email. Lots of friends are made through sharing a hobby or playing a sport together. If the concept of a soulmate holds true, you will probably encounter this person anyway, whether it be at school, at work, on the beach, or in the queue outside the movie theater. If you have become distanced from friends, for whatever reasons, this may be an excellent time to bridge that distance. Pickup up the phone, or sit by the keyboard, or pick up a pen. Your friend may be in Cina but that doesn’t matter; friendships can span the globe and last a lifetime.

While it may seem odd to have a card about community right now, the fact is that even during a pandemic when many of us are isolated community is important. The communal spirit encourages people to take care of each other, which is needed at a time when many face financial and medical challenges.

Blessings!

BEE (Beach) – Community, Celebration, Organization

The card shows a queen bee resting on a stone. In the background we see the House of Mead Circling at Tara as it may have looked at the height of its powers. In the sky, the noonday sun shines brightly and we see Ur, heather, growing by the rock that is carved with the Ur Ogham.

Meaning: Beach invites us to celebrate. You may have special reason for celebration, or you may simply need to celebrate the wonder of being alive. You may like to enjoy a glass or two of mead, which – if it has been made in Scotland – will carry the scent of heather, and will bring you closer to the spirit of the highlands. In the Druid tradition there are occasions to celebrate every six weeks or so. As human beings we need to have times when we can come together to enjoy each other’s company. The bee tells us that we can live together in harmony, however, impossible as this may sometimes seem. By being at one with the natural world, by paying homage to the sun, by centering our lives around Spirit or the Goddess, we can work together in community.

The card may also indicate that you are feeling out of place – unsure of your role in the world. A beehive functions harmoniously because each bee knows its role and the work it must do – consequently it is highly productive and plays an important role in the local ecology. We talk of a productive work environment as a hive of activity. If you find you are lacking in motivation or are feeling isolated from the community that surrounds you, you may need some bee medicine. A modern English folk healer uses bee stings therapeutically to cure asthma and other ailments, and you may need to prod yourself into action before others do the prodding for you. If you find this applies to you, spend some time thinking about your role in life, and then make decisions in accordance with your sense of purpose and the resulting goals that this engenders. Remember that the bee knows the value of organization, of paying homage to the Goddess and the sun, and of working hard. Remember too that she call us to a celebration of life and an inner recognition of our membership of the community of all Nature.

Happy Monday, everyone! Today’s card suggests it might be a day to use your voice – just remember that to use it wisely and not fall into the trap of arguing into the abyss.

Blessings!

Talking Stick

Meaning: Speak your truth. The soul loves the truth: communicate from your heart and share your reality without hesitation. Be willing to stand before the crowd and share from your Center. This isn’t the time to be shy and hesitant; it’s a time to heal through communication. You have the gift of a true leader through the way you communicate with others.

Native Spirit Wisdom: During tribal Council meetings, a decorated stick, called A Talking Stick, would be passed around. As each council member held the stick, he or she held the opportunity to speak from the heart. Each person in attendance would be asked to carefully consider the words of each speaker. The Talking Stick reminded each person to be authentic. Communication restores trust and allows you to clarify your ideas, position, and feelings. It can be healing when you share what has been withheld. Now is the time to take a risk and have the courage to speak with clarity. Share any unspoken darkness that was heavy in the heart. There are times to hold back and be discerning, but this isn’t one of them. Even if you’re afraid, declare your truth for all to hear without fear of being rejected or misunderstood. When you do this, transformation and healing can occur.

The Journey: Decorate a stick or a feather to use as your personal Talkingstick. Whenever you hold it, let it be a secret reminder to seek the truth with them. Take a minute every day to take stock of where you are and ask yourself about “what is so” in your life. Simply taking a moment to discover your inner truth can have a profound healing effect on your life.

Good morning! The fox is known for being sly, but don’t forget how observant a sly creature must be. Now is the time to slow down and tap into that quality.

Blessings!

Observe in Silence

Now is not the time to be the life of the party, nor to step forward into the role of leader or teacher. Be cautious. It may not be wise to draw attention to yourself or to reveal your plans to others at this time. Instead, be silent. Step back. Be still. Watch those around you and be mindful of what you see, hear, and feel. Trust in your instincts and intuition and let them guide your steps.

Well, we are back in action for a daily card. We also had a fun distraction yesterday as we found two kittens in our garage. We hope to find these two homes quickly – before we get attached to their cuteness.

Today’s card is suggesting we examine partnerships, goals, and values. It’s also strongly linked to masculinity, so perhaps its time to look at your connection to the masculine.

Hope everyone has a great week. Blessings!

Yarrow – Fidelity, Masculinity, Virility

Meaning: One name for Yarrow is “Seven Years’ Love,” since it was believed that a charm made with Yarrow could keep couples loving and faithful for seven years. What happened after that we do not know, but Yarrow’s association with fidelity may provide a clue as to what this card means for you. Faithfulness to a partner or to certain values or shared ideas forms the basis of trust, and sometimes we can take this for granted without fully examining it. A review every seven years is a wise idea – for business partners as well as lovers. Values, goals, and boundaries can be assessed and re-contracted, with the potential for a renewed sense of purpose and commitment.

Some writers say that Yarrow is sacred to the Horned God and the male principle, and another meaning for this card might revolve around your relationship to masculinity. Many of us hold a partly conscious representation in our awareness of a powerful and virile man that we would like to become or merge with. It is possible that this card signals a time in which you will start to work more consciously with this figure.

On the flip side: Yarrow stalks have been used for divination for centuries. We turn to divination when we are uncertain about the future or need guidance. This process can easily become fatalistic and disempowering; used wisely, an oracle should encourage us to draw on our inner wisdom and stimulate our ability to think more deeply about our station before making any decisions. This card reversed may indicate that you are turning to this oracle to help you make a choice that, deep down, you suspect you’ve already taken. But hesitancy and doubt have their values: They help us to avoid arrogance and impulsiveness, and to fine-tune our decisions and timing. Sometimes in an oracle we seek only the echo of our own thoughts and feelings.

Are you in process with a project or life change? This card indicates that things are working and to go with it.

Have a great weekend!

Flowing River

Meaning: Everything is falling into place because you aren’t resisting the drift of the great river of life. It’s time to let go. You’re entering a period of gracious ease and flow. All is u unfolding perfectly ad with good timing. When you’re in a state of flow, you aren’t pushing the river to go faster and you aren’t swimming against it. Let go of the shore and enjoy the ride.

Native Spirit Message: Rivers have personalities and carry energy, just as animals and plants do. From the Maoris to the Australian Aborigines, and to other native cultures throughout the world, it’s believed that it’s important to listen to the language of the river. If you aren’t feeling the smooth currents of life, it might mean that you’re trying to control situations or that you’re being self=critical or judgmental. The way to move into flow is through gratitude and appreciation, and by allowing others to support and help you. Heeed the Native American saying: “It’s best to ride the horse the direction that it’s going.” This means that when the card Flowing River chooses you, you’re being told to let go and go with he flow. If there is something or someone you need to forgive, this the is the time. YThis is also the time to forgive yourself and just let go.

The Journey: As you shower and the water flows over your body, imagine that everyone is flowing in your life. Spend time next to a river or stream and watch the flowering waters; use it as a metaphor to let go and enter the flow.
