First, do you see the challenge I have when posting the card every morning? LOL This kitty is Budge, and he’s a sweetheart, but there’s always one of four cats that want this spot. Budge just wanted to say hello.

Now, on to the card.

So often we gather little things throughout our life that mean something to us – signs of changes or personal inspirations. From a stone, feather, or acorn picked up on a walk to a crystal or tool that calls to you at a shop, many different things can do the trick. Today’s card suggests it is time to pull together and revisit these items as well as your mental and spiritual resources that might not be a material thing.

Blessings!

MEDICINE BAG 

MEANING: Gather your resources. Be discerning. Vast inner power is growing in your life – step back and let it grow. There are times to shine brightly for all to see, and there are also times to choose carefully who sees your true self. Choose wisely. Do not make hasty decisions. If it doesn’t feel right, hold back. You’re protected from any less-than-positive outside influences. Your capacity and potential are growing in leaps and bounds. 

NATIVE SPIRIT WISDOM: It’s traditional in indigenous cultures to carry a medicine bag or bundle as a form of protection and also as a way to access your personal power through the sacred objects that are held there. The items in the medicine bag each contain potent qualities that allow one’s abilities to magnify and also help one commune with the Creator. As your power grows, take time to protect it. Just as you protect a seedling in the early months, and then later – once it’s an established tree – it can withstand the storms of time. Protect your growing power, and it will become as mighty as an ancient oak.

THE JOURNEY: Consider obtaining or creating your own medicine bag or bundle. Put objects in it that are meaningful to you and make you feel strong and vital whenever you look at them. Traditionally, one’s medicine bag was not worn for display, but often hidden from view or kept in a sacred place.

I would have preferred a card that suggested we hole up and rest, especially since we have some chilly weather here. However, it looks like some of us need to get on the ball (which is also true for me as well as the rest). For those of us in winter season, perhaps we need to get a task or two done so we can rest easily.

I think I need to let Tarot Kitty Cerridwen in on this because she was trying to slow up the card this morning!

Have a great Thursday.

Antelope Spirit – Life is Speeding Up!

Message: When Antelope Spirit rushes into your life, you’re being reminded of the quickening of your personal evolution as a powerful co-creator. You are being told unequivocally that it’s time to get moving; set your intentions and take action toward making your dreams real.

There is an intensity you can feel, and it is important to take advantage of this energy right now. If you have a plan for your career of financial abundance, now is the time to step it up. If you’re asking about a relationship, make that first move. Just know that the intentions you have set in motion are coming together now at warp speed; stay alert and keep up. Things are getting interesting when the Antelope calls you to move quickly!

Protection Message: Do you feel how fast the world is changing, like everything is moving at warp speed? It’s hard to control desired outcomes or set fixed goals because by the time you get “there,” you will actually have moved beyond it. Now is the time to let go and enjoy the exhilarating ride as intentions you have set in motion in the past are coming into form with lightning speed. Your job is to stay the course even if the pace feels dizzying. You may find you will change your mind a half dozen times or more as you improve your offerings – that is just fine. Make peace with the pace, for if you ride this quickening energy you will solve challenges quickly and effortlessly instead of being bogged down.

The best way to use this energy is to let go of worry and stay mindfully present as you continue to take action. Also, if something is not going to be in your best interests, no matter how badly you want it, Antelope will quickly remove it so you can move toward what is truly meant for you. If something is taken away, be grateful and keep moving!

This is not the time to sit still but to breath deeply as you move forward with velocity!

This was the card drawn when we first began the Halloween Oracle in September. It has returned as we proceed through the daytime hours of Samhain, summer’s end. Here, the weather certainly fits that with a drippy 47 degrees (I’m not complaining – I love this weather).

New kitty Cerridwen was feeling lovey and parked on my lap as I drew today’s card. I think she would have preferred the Hearth card for today.

I hope you all have a blessed day and remember the might dead while embracing the mighty living. Blessings!

SKELETON – “Strength”

On the outside is flesh
On the inside is bone
There is strength in vulnerability
In power we have grown

Halloween is a scary festival. It is meant to frighten. We are meant to feel the release of being pleasantly scared. We trick-or-treat even though we know that someone may surprise us, we watch horror films knowing they will scare us, we even dress as skeletons who have no flesh at all and their bones are there for all to see! In short, we show our vulnerability at Halloween and our strength in facing our fears too.

There is incredible strength in showing vulnerability. It can often be the bravest course of action and the most frightening. More often than not, it is a powerful catalyst for person growth even though we may not be able to perceive that at the time.

By showing our true selves and displaying some balanced vulnerability, we can seek and receive greater understanding from others. By admitting that we are wrong or that we don’t have the solution when we are expected to, we leave more room to turn things around faster. By asking for help and support rather than acting as martyrs and feeling resentful shows strength and wisdom, not weakness.

Should the Skeleton card bring itself to your attention, dare to show strength and vulnerability if that is what you really feel. Shame, pride, or embarrassment are heft burdens that need not be carried through the darkest of nights.
