This card is perfect for folks in my area – there’s a limit to the work that can be done in -4 F degrees! I know northern folks are accustomed to those kind of temps but in southeast Kansas it is definitely rare. Brown Bear is here today to relax, consider, and plan and wait to work or take action for a day or two. It is better to act with intention than simply reacting.

Also, I’m working with a new deck, The Herbcrafter’s Tarot, so look for a review soon as well as seeing them in the daily card mix.

Happy Monday!

Brown Bear Spirit – Take Time Out

Message: There is a time to act and a time to focus your attention on patient strategizing. The arrival of Brown Bear Spirit signals that you are best served by foregoing hard work toward your goals at this moment and instead taking the time out to meditate – or just take a nap so you can refresh yourself and begin planning what you want to co-create next. Come to know the lay of the land as you contemplate and imagine what you might do in this vast space of possibility before you, and begin forming a plan. Remember, sleep allows for dreaming and rest allows for clear-headed strategizing.

How might you become the person you wish to be and experience whatever your heart desires? Insights will arise as you explore the possibilities and begin envisioning your plan. Knowing what you want will ensure you use your energy wisely in the days ahead. Be patient at this time. Relax and be calm and peaceful so you can recharge. The call for action will come later.

Protection Message: When you become so frazzled that you can’t decide how to move forward, Brown Bear arrives to remind you to let go of your impatience in getting to answers and solving the problems that face you. Now is the time for rest and meditation. Take a break, let insights arise, and know that you have plenty of time to make plans.

Brown Bear Spirit reminds you that sometimes the best and most effective action is inaction, allowing the situation around you to reveal itself to you so you can better understand it. Remember that what is yours will never be withheld from you, so you really can relax and wait until the next right action is revealed. Miracles come from out of nowhere, and yours will arrive on Great Spirit’s timetable.

Sometimes we need to get busy in a different way to receive the blessings we seek. Are you busy doing the same unsuccessful things over and over? Do you not work well with others? Do you not value yourself enough and allow others to walk over you? Carefully look at where you want to be and what rewards in life you seek, then look closely at how you are trying to achieve that. Sometimes even a little tweak can make a big difference, and self-awareness is key.

Have a great week!

Bee Spirit – Sweet results await

Message: The Bee Spirit’s message is that sweet rewards are on their way if you are willing to get your ego out of the way and immerse yourself in the connected energy of all things. Bee Spirit knows not to let a sense of being a separate self get in the way of a good thing. Spirit is always producing honey; miracles and magic are everywhere. When you connect with the Great Hive, you are vibrating and buzzing in exquisite harmony with all. Bee asks that you focus on connectivity.

Your body, heart, soul, and psyche experience total interconnectedness and a true integration when you “self-forget”: when you remember that you are part of a greater unified consciousness.

Moving from separation into connection, from self-centered limitation to Spirit-centered infinite possibility and potential, you become busy as a bee, enjoying the gifts of Bee Spirit. Fully in alignment with your highest expression of yourself, your heart opens and creativity rushes through you seemingly without effort as you experience that nothing feels like work. Industriousness is driven by enthusiasm and inner motivation, and time seems to fly by quickly as the hive supports you in the making of honey. Do you feel the presence of your helpers in the hidden realms adding their energy to your creations?

Magical results are taking form and will be sweeter than you expect. Bee Spirit wants you to remember that your part in the divine partnership with the Conscious Universe is being rewarded even if you can’t see that yet, and asks that you share your good fortune as there is plenty of honey for all. Be a part of the larger whole, the force that brings forth all that is sweet and delightful.

Protection Message: When Bee Spirit comes as your protector, she asks you to be very honest with yourself. Do you want to taste the sweet honey others have been making but you believe is unattainable for you? Do you wonder how others ended up with so much magical honey when you seem to have none? Have you bought into the illusion of separation and become convinced that you can’t have what others in the hive enjoy? Do you separate from the hive to do it all on your own or to hoard what honey you have, unwilling to trust that there is plenty of support and plenty of sweetness to go around?

If you have been overworking and overdoing and have not given yourself any time to enjoy the sweetness of your life, Bee Spirit is telling you to stop and recharge. Perhaps you’re afraid that if you don’t get something done, it just won’t get done. However, even busy bees need to take a break, and when you do, the honey still gets made. So remind yourself that sweetness is everywhere and available to you always when you need it.

“Coyote came and some to me, he said, ‘Get used to your destiny.'” – Nahko and Medicine for the People

Coyotes often get a bad rap in our culture, seen as a problem to farmers, ranchers, and even nature-loving people are off put by them. The truth is that they are important to our ecological system, especially when so many other natural predators have not fared well, and are incredibly adaptive creatures. We could take a lesson from them about adapting our desires and wishes to go with the flow, instead of insisting that our plans hinge on things unfolding exactly as we imagine them. That rarely happens.

Here’s to a good Monday and a better 2021 – and I feel that Coyote was the perfect choice to kick off this year’s card of the day. Blessings!

Coyote Spirit – Trust in Divine Detours

Meaning: Do you find that you are being led on a strange detour in your life right now? Does it seem that what appears to be the next right action and the right choice, best situation, or fabulous relationship unexpectedly turns into the opposite – or just disappears into thin air, as if you’ve been tricked? Coyote Spirit’s trickster energy is designed to bring you into situations to teach you lessons you have forgotten to learn. Perhaps you need a taste of failure before you experience success, a need to feel disappointment before you can truly appreciate the joy, love, and prosperity that is coming up for you. Perhaps you are revisiting a pattern you forgot wasn’t in alignment with the life you are intending to co-create, being reminded that gratitude, not complacency, will keep you awake and aware of all that is available to you in this moment.

Coyote Spirit reminds you to laugh about the unexpected twists, to develop humility and gratitude while releasing your attachments to the form of your desires. Even when you suddenly find yourself on a detour, wondering when you will get back on track to manifesting what you desire, remember that Spirit has a plan and wanted the best for you. Trust in divine order now. Coyote Spirits is a divine helper; no matter what seems to go astray, things are exactly as they are supposed to be.

Protection Message: Sometimes, a goal is so enticing and alluring that you lose your footing in the pursuit. You being to fixate on capturing this prize, whether it be an opportunity you have always wanted, a relationship with that elusive someone, or the promise of the big break. Coyote Spirit warns you that this trickster energy seducing you now will yield nothing but disappointment and unnecessary heartache if you let yourself be fooled. Great Spirit wants the best for you, so when your plans go topsy turvy, know that Coyote is present to protect and bless you. Listen to her gently warning not to take the world too seriously or become too attached to the form and timing of your desire. Something better is beckoning. If you learn your lesson and lighten your heart, it will not be long before you see that crooked though the path may have been, you were on the right one all along.

I’ve had this deck almost two years, but this is the first time this beauty has been the card of the day. It’s a solid one, reminding us to balance strength with compassion.

Blessings!

Stag Spirit – Take the Lead

Message: Whether or not you have set your intention to lead, you may have found yourself suddenly called to step up to the forefront of your life. Stag Spirit is a reminder that now is a time to heed the call to be sure, strong, and compassionate. Others will look to you, and you have it within you to see through the eyes of Stag Spirit and walk with confidence as you take on responsibilities that are yours now and model integrity in all that you do and in all your relationships. Be willing to see the best in others so that your compassionate heart keeps you on the right path.

Stag Spirit wants you to know that your responsibilities now are to yourself too, for you are learning and developing new skills. The best in your is coming into view as you step forward with strength, knowing that Spirit supports you as you compassionately take the lead. You are a model for transformation now, sharing your experience, strength, and hope with others so they may grow and discover their best selves too. What a gift you are. Stay humble and authentic, and walk your talk, for this how a wise leader leads.

Protection Message: Others may not be as far along as you are on your journey. When Stag Spirit appears in the protection position, you are called to be compassionate and patient as you find yourself leading the way. When others struggle to follow you, they may be unsure that you can be trusted, challenging you to be kind and strong, challenging your value and questioning your worth. Know that Spirit has put you in this place at this time for a purpose and will not abandon you when you need help with your new responsibilities.

Or perhaps you are actually uncomfortable leading, maybe temporarily trapped by your small self and therefore promoting yourself too strongly, afraid that others might see weakness or imperfection in you. Let go of your fears, and let Stag Spirit remind you that you have what it takes to lead wisely and ethically if you practice self-honestly and listen to others who wish to support you.

I feel lately as if every card speaks to the chaos and strife in the world and how we should counter it. Well, here we go again. Remember that even though the world has been showing its hateful side, we do not have to face it with hate. And by no means should you fall into the trap of hating yourself. If you have shame or sadness for not being better, move on and focus on how to be better.

Blessings!

Message: With her peaceful cooing, the gentle Dove Spirit invites you to embrace the energy of peace and allow compassion to warm your heart. ou always have the power to generate peace within you, and the appearance of Dove Spirit is a reminder that today and every day is a good day to meditate, to quiet any turbulence within as you embody tranquility.

Above, below, and all around you, much may be happening to distract you, but you are called to engage it with the heart of a peacemaker, asking yourself, “What would Peace do?” Can you agree to disagree?

The peace you seek rises within and spreads out into the world as Spirit sends her messenger to remind you of the beauty of a harmonious existence with all that is. How beautiful and powerful is your compassionate heart!

Protection Message: However disturbed the waters are around you, however your troubled heart, Dove Spirit is there to remind you that peace without begins within as you reconnect with Spirit through practices the awaken you from spiritual amnesia. Your true nature is as a peaceful child of Spirit. Soon, the waters will become still and you will feel peace again. Be compassionate with yourself at this time, for all of us can forget that peace is always at hand, always there, gifted to us by Spirit. Become the peace you wish to see in the world so you can reduce any suffering, performing acts of kindness and radiating love.

Dove Spirit also reminds you that when you see inequity or someone harmed or in need, trust that you have the capacity to bring peace through smiling, sending love, speaking a kind word, and listening with a compassionate heart. Do your part to be a peacemaker, nourishing compassion, reminding others of the joy of harmonious co-existence so that they may embrace the Dove Spirit within themselves too.

An amazing card to kick off the week, don’t you think? Maybe your creativity comes through your work or through a hobby or even the daily cooking. Don’t overlook it just because it doesn’t look like how you expect it to. Work your creative magic!

Blessings.

Scarab Beetle Spirit – Magic Works Through You

Message: In Ancient Egyptt, the scarab beetle was revered, for the creative magic of Scarab Beetle Spirit reminds us that we can bring forth something extraordinary seemingly out of thin air. Whenever you let your creativity flow through you, Scarab Beetle reminds you that Spirit has given you the gift of infinite potential. You have an ally as you fashion something new or repurpose the old; the Spirit co-creates with you, channeling energy through you so that you feel replenished and vitalized as you make magic with what is at hand.

Now is a time for great optimism, for you can accomplish anything you desire and your creative endeavors will come to fruition. Miracles, opportunities, abundance, and love will appear seemingly out of nowhere as you allow Spirit to work through you and magically manifest what you need.

Protection Message: Do you doubt your unique inner magic? Are you afraid that you have no originality or that creative juices don’t flower through you? Perhaps you mistakenly believe you’re not “the creative manifesting type.” Scarab Beetle Spirit’s message is that creativity is a living force that comes to all of us from Spirit, who wants every person on the planet to manifest magic and co-create the world anew. You are as capable of resilience and innovation as anyone. If you do what you’ve always done, you’re going to get what you’ve always got, so draw inspiration into your being and begin to playfully create something new – and do it without any judgement. Creativity and magic are your legacy as an expression of the Creator, so let them flow through you.
