THE WISDOM OF BALANCE

Standard

6 june 2012   >   8/17   >   Adjustment/Balance/Justice/The STAR

 

TAROT HAIKU

Fairly adjusted

Sun to blue, Stars to night sky

Atmosphere changes

 

Thanks for joining me this morning.  Did anyone see/fee/experience last evenings Venus ‘eclipse’ of the Sun?  The Solar Feminine.   One my other blog, http://geezergirl.org  I wrote a poem about the what came up for me with this special Cosmic event.  I’ll share it here this morning after I share my thoughts and feeling about todays number and card.

 

Todays invitation is about balance, justice, adjusting life just right so you can settle in to what feels right and comfortable for you: managing the ebb and flow of life’s endless gifts and interferences.

The number ‘8’ and the tarot card Balance/Adjustment, and Justice along with it’s Tarot ally, The Star (#17)give of their wisdom today and if it’s your birthday, a whole year of considering this questions and thoughts I share with you here.

 Some tarot-authored decks, differ on the # 8 Major Arcana; Strength/Lust or Justice/Balance.   I made a choice to use Crowley’s delineation, making the ‘8’ card Balance/Adjustment/Justice. Simply, a personal choice.  Within either choice is the opportunity to consider how you balance and adjust your life; how you consider the choices you make to address inner conflict, or trusting what you know is Wisdom’s way to sustain equality within yourself and around you.  I think there is a tending to life in a way that is supported by noticing how you feel, and trusting your intuition and instincts.  Getting to far from the center of yourself will cause imbalance.  There is this constant flow in the nature of things that seems to desire balance.

Your ‘ally’ The Star, reminds you that staying well and healthy, knowing your vulnerability can be an asset.  And that you just might be standing between ‘heaven and earth’ acting as a vehicle for change.  These are all part of this sense of Divine Order to be aware of and mind-full of. 

In the ‘8’, is the management of your resources, your time, your money, and the consideration of how you control and have power; how you lead yourself and others.  It is considered by some, the card of Divine Order.  It will be about how you order your life and live in the material world.  How do you manage it and others.  It can be dictatorial, and overly controlling.  Be Mindful.

 

QUESTION TO PONDER

 

What does Divine Order mean to you?

Can you be a vulnerable leader and what does that mean anyway?

In what ways can you adjust and find balance?

What is the difference for you between ‘power over’ and power shared and given?

How might you find justice in an unjust world?

What doesn’t feel fair right now that you can make feel/be a little better?

What is interfering with your sense of balance and equilibrium and what might you do shift that?

What isn’t working in how you manage ‘thing’ and what can you do to adjust that?

Can you let go of being perfect, or doing it ‘perfect’ so that you actually get it done?

If you feel you are on a tightrope struggling to stay balanced and centered what might you do to change this?  What needs to happen?

How will you manage your resources?

What are feeling you are losing control over that maybe you need to re-calibrate what that control is?

What is your time management?

THE CHARIOT IS WAITING

Standard

5 june 2012   >    7/16  >     Chariot/Tower

TAROT HAIKU

she penetrates Light

no corner is left to Dark

feel everything now 

Back on track.  I feel that when I make a mistake in my addition for the day, as embarrassing as it is,  that there is always a higher reason for the mistake and it is what needed to be said.  (I’m covering for myself LOL)  Anyway… HI there.. thanks for your visit.  I’ve added correctly and we ARE on a ‘7’ day with the Charioteer as our invitation to the day with the Tower an ‘ally’.

 

In the ‘7’, there is the investigator, the analyzer, the observer; he/she who misses nothing and gathers what they know into a deeper understanding of how things work and the reason for being.  They are on a need to know bases as they tend to be suspicious of others.  ‘7’ find inspiration in everything they take interest in. There is a tenaciousness about ‘7’s’, at times even a willful fervor when something is decided, it become nearly unshakeable in the truth of it.  ‘7’ desires to be nearly perfect at something/s.

 

The Chariot is that warrior that embraces all these ‘7’qualities; that sits splendidly in his/her grand Chariot all dressed and ready to go; ready to be called up to take action when action is needed to be taken.  One of my deck has four butterflies with and eye on each wing as the trusted steeds that will carry the Chariot forth.  I like this representation rather than the horses without reins, as it speaks to the metamorphous and fragile beauty of the Will it takes to command the Chariot to move forward.  The Charioteer uses her focused Will to move the Chariot to take action on behalf of what has at last come to culmination and the time has come to Move.  It is a powerful statement about this card.

 

One of the qualities of our Charioteer is that they have given focus and attention to something that has moved them deeply, and they have waited patiently for the time to come when their service is called upon.  For called up they will be to take this passionate caring to the next level.

 

This is what this day and birthday year are about.  

 

QUESTIONS TO PONDER

 

What needs to be gathered and investigated right now?

What is your passion and are you willing to give yourself to it?

How will you give it your focus?

What incites your suspicions and how can you shift that into a positive outlook?

Is it time for you to take your project to the next level and what does that look like?

Is your foundation strong so that you can take some risks?

Have you gotten to far away from what ‘matters’ and might need to get back to basics?

What inspires you to give all of yourself to?

Does your will-fullness hold people to you or push then away and is that working for you?

Are you too attached to the outcome?

Is it time to shift your attention to something that will work better for you?

‘7’ of what?

 

360 DEGREES OF AN OPEN HEART… 12/HANGEDONE

Standard

1 june 2012  >  12/3/21   >   HangedOne/Empress/Universe

TAROT HAIKU

Turn yourself around

360 of heart open

Lay down and look up

 

Hello.  And here is the Hanged One again.  Certainly the most popular of cards so far this year. For pure numerologist, it would lead to a ‘3’ day, The Empress. Some of her qualities are to nurture creativity, birth new form into being, and to consider the inclusive/exclusive ways of the World.

As I said recently, I think it’s poignant  that we are invited to ‘turn the world upside down’ and take another look at it all.  Or, more specifically, turn yourself around and a little upside down and get a new perspective.  What will you include and exclude?  And Is the Hokey Pokey really what it’s all about? 

I mean…. Really?  Is it?

The Universe, is calling us all to shift our perceptions and perhaps our attachment to our limited thinking and embrace a broader, more expansive vision of the world we live in.  Become more inclusive and see ourselves as part of the Great Universal Oneness. I am of the heart that we are All in on this living here on this evolving planet to share the common goal of achieving our Highest Good.  To be of kindness and love.

 

Since The Hanged One touches many birthdays this year, let’s hope that a year full of shifting perspective helps to heal our planet and our relationships with others and ourselves.

 

How might you shift your perspective?

Can you take a moment to notice how you make critique of something and change that?

Can you become more inclusive?

Can you see your ‘brothers/sisters’ in the people that pass you by on the street, in the store, anywhere?

How can you nurture positive thinking?

What new idea or concept might you take action on: birth?

Elementally speaking….

In the Earth of it… How do you create new boundaries?  How do you change what you do?

Or, HOw do you take what you have done and share it with the larger community?

In the Air of it… How do  you breathe new life into your life?  What needs clarifying as you shift your perceptive? What do you ‘cut away’ that doesn’t serve your present Path?

In the Water of it… What is the flow that you most desire to have?  How do you keep your heart open and honest?  How do keep your emotional integrity?

In the Fire of it….  How do you embrace your light?  What does Spirit have to say to you as you sit patiently waiting to listen?  Have you been being Authentic and what does that mean to you?

What needs burning away so there is a place to plant your new seeds?

 

IN THE MOMENT HANGING

Standard

29 may 2012   >   12/3/21  >   HangedOne/Empress/Universe

 

TAROT INVITATION

See what it is right there

Notice beyond what you see

Make it right as is

 

Morning…  thanks for your visit.  One of the things that I feel is essential when you consider each day is to consider that whatever this day is and has to offer, that in this moment you are exactly where you need to be.  (IMO)  The past is gone, tomorrow has yet to be and this moment is where you can find the truth of yourself.  And if this truth is unsettling: if this moment feels difficult, or painful, you might consider how you could adjust your thinking, your feelings,  your attitude to shift this  moment into one of pleasure and joy.  Perhaps, take notice of the goodness around you and what you are grateful for.  Today’s thought for the day is the Hanged One.  How might the energy of the Hanged One help you shift your attitude to one of gratitude and joy?

 

  Tho’  it always comes to the ‘3’, the Empress, when you add it to its last single digit, today it first comes to ‘12’ which for me makes it a bit more of a Hanged One’s day with the undercurrent of the Empress and the Universe.  Just my way to use all the Major Arcana and consider more depth.  I am first a Tarot kinda gal.

 

It is interesting that there are many repeat expressions of the Hanged One already this year.  What it brings up for me is the need, maybe even the necessity to really notice how you attach yourself to your life, that Tree of Life that reminds you who you are and where you came from.  AND… that maybe, during these global times of disenchantment with the politic of things, It might be important to really, really, take a new perspective on things.  Turn your life upside down, if it hasn’t already happened in your resistance, and consider the path you are on and is it working for you? What in this moment might you look at a little differently, a little less negatively, a little more positively?  In the Hanged One card there is a need for patience and calm.  Maybe a shift in your world view, or your view of work, family, and immediate relationships.

 

The Hanged One is an invitation to get a new perspective and look at the way you’ve set your ‘systems’ in place.  With the allies of the Empress and Universe; they support your creative, nurturing process and ask that you take in a more Universal, inclusive view.  And, you have the Minor Arcana that speaks to the ‘work’ that might need doing in the elemental expressions of EArth, Fire, Water, and Air.  so the question might be these:

 

QUESTIONS TO PONDER

 

HOw do you give yourself to a new perspective, a new view of the world around you?

In the Earth of it… How do you create new boundaries?  How do you change what you do?

Or, HOw do you take what you have done and share it with the larger community?

IN the Air of it… How do  you breathe new life into your life?  What needs clarifying as you shift your perceptive? What do you ‘cut away’ that doesn’t serve your present Path?

In the Water of it… What is the flow that you most desire to have?  How do you keep your heart open and honest?  How do keep your emotional integrity?

In the Fire of it….  How do you embrace your light?  What does Spirit have to say to you as you sit patiently waiting to listen?  Have you been being Authentic and what does that mean to you?

What needs burning away so there is a place to plant your new seeds?

 

Thanks for you visit and may you ‘ hang’ with all of us on this journey.  Peace to you.

YOU ARE THE ONE YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR

Standard

27 may 2012  >  10/1/19   >   WheelofFortune/Magician/Sun

 TAROT HAIKU

You are the One 

You are  Light Divine shining

Your wait is over 

This has certainly been a year where ‘#1”, first finds itself in the ‘10’:the Wheel of Fortune.  I find it a reminder that what come up goes down and again and again.  Life moves around you and within you, with or with out you.  Where do you stand in this Wheel?  Where do you stand in your life?

 

It’s all about you in a certain sort of way.  Knowing your Oneness, knowing that you are at One with all that is and all you are as you grapple and swing and rotate on Life’s Wheel.  It is about how you initiate your life, how you stand centered and your sense of personal awareness.  In considering The Wheel of Fortune, which can represent the Circle of Life; turning and changing,  up and down, east and west, ever inviting you in to your center where the journey of life is more steady and focused. That center can be where the Sun shine directly on you to help you flourish and see where you’re going and how you’re growing.

 The Magician has all the tools you need;  earth, fire, air, and water, that translates to; what you do, how you hold true to yourself and your passion, how you get clarity, how you feel, and what your heart speaks to.  

If today is your birthday, these are questions to consider for the whole year.  Grab one or all and see what stirs you up.  Change the wording around to make it feel right for you.  As you ponder these thoughts and questions, please take a moment to sit quietly and breathe.  Let your breath guide you into a quiet place for the questions to have a moment to brew and shimmer.  Invite your wisdom to be your guide.  And remember, if overwhelm sets in, take a very little step.  You have as much time as you need.

 

QUESTIONS TO PONDER

 

How do you stay centered in yourself and if not how will you?

How will you push your edges and try to expand a little bit more?

What does the wheel of your life look like and how does it turn?

Are you going counter clockwise?   And is that a good thing for you?

What new beginning is pushing at your edges to consider or take action on?

What can you do that supports that feeling of magic in the air?

If you ‘are the One’, how does your Oneness join with others?

What does the tool of ‘earth’ mean to you?  

What does the tool of ‘fire’ mean to you

What does the tool of ‘water’ mean to you?

What does the tool of ‘air’ mean to you?

How can you use these tool to move with changes and turns of your life?

HERMIT LETS IN THE MOON DANCE

Standard

26 may 2012   > 9/18  >   Hermit/Moon

 

TAROT HAIKU

Wisdom has a plan

It waits for your listening

Your heart feels the call

 

Ah the sweetness of a soft rain.. That’s what my morning rise is to.  We needed the rain and here it is.

Makes me languid and peaceful.

Welcome to ITN.  If this is your first time here.  Yeah.  and if you find yourself here again: yeah yeah. Feel free to pass this on to other that might enjoy it.  Thanks

 

Today, on this lovely rainy Saturday in Michigan, a day to take some quiet time and really gather your light, your unfinished business, your need for closure, whatever has been lingering in the undone zone that pokes at you to finish up.  Maybe you’ve been plowing through life and are drained, depleted, no time for yourself and your creative desires and dreams.  This is day to give a little bit to tidying up what has been bugging you and you have felt frustrated with.  It might be a time to let go of that piece of life you keep putting off and putting off and now it’s just a thorn in your side, undone, going no where.  And,  maybe it’s a day to sit quietly and meditate with your inner light and allow it to rise and show the path to your own wisdom.

 

  ‘9’, is the number for bringing-it-all-together: tying up lose ends, completing that project, that plan, that thought, so you can move on.  Being stuck in ‘9’ energy can keep things from coming to completion or missing out on an opportunity that need more action and less pondering.  

  Hermit ‘energy’ doesn’t need time to ponder and recluse; to gather energy in quietude and meditation so that there is more energy to have and more light to shine., more wisdom to gather and share.  There isn’t a time limit on the need for silence and gathering. And… once this time of quietude finds completion, Hermit energy is ready to give back and share what wisdom which was held in the shadows of life and is now ready to shine it out for others to see and feel.

    

With the Moon as your ally, take a look in those shadows of yours and drag that unfinished business into the light. The Moon, speaks to cycles, the flow of feelings and thoughts that provoke those feelings, the shadows of life, how you reflect light, and the fullness of that radiance.

The Hermit, calls to your inner wisdom, lights it up and lets it shine within and out.  He/she invites you to pay attention to what you know and how you might expand on that spiritually.

 

QUESTIONS TO PONDER

 

Can you carve out the time you need to sit quietly and allow your inner wisdom a chance to speak?

What needs ‘pulling’ together ?

Do you notice your inner wisdom and what is it saying to you at this time?

What are the cycles and patterns of your life and are they working for you?

What might need tuning up or letting go of?

What does the silence have to say to you?

Over the last 8 hours, 8days, 8years, 8months; what is now ready to bring to completion?

What lays hidden in the shadows of your life that seeks the light?

And what still needs time in the ‘shadows’ to percolate before it desires full-on light?

How can you claim the energy you need without giving too much of yourself away?

 

Please write out any questions that might come up for you that are more appropriate for you at this time.

BE THE CONDUIT

Standard

7 may 2012   >  8/17  >  Adjustment/balance/The Star

 

Morning… Lots of repeats here with days rolling into each other so fast.  And… I gotta think it’s alright to let you re read some of what was written before.  ALWAYs.. I write a new haiku for you.  

 

TAROT HAIKU

In the center placed

EArth to heaven touching now

Be the conduit

 

Today’s invitation or your birthday year, comes from the number ‘8’ and the tarot card Balance/Adjustment, along with it’s Tarot ally, The Star (#17). Some tarot-authored decks, differ on the # 8 Major Arcana; Strength/Lust or Justice/Balance.   I made a choice to use Crowleys delineation making the ‘8’ card Balance/Adjustment/Justice. Simply, a personal choice.  Within either choice is the opportunity to consider how you balance and adjust your life; how you consider the choices you make to address inner conflict, or trusting what you know is the way to sustain equality within yourself and around you.  I think there is a tending to life in a way that is supported by noticing how you feel, and trusting your intuition and instincts.  Getting to far from the center of yourself will cause imbalance.  There is this constant flow in the nature of things that seems to desire balance.

Your ‘ally’ The Star, reminds you that staying well and healthy, knowing your vulnerability can be an asset.  And that you just might be standing between ‘heaven and earth’ acting as a vehicle for change.  These are all part of this sense of Divine Order to be aware of and mind-full of. 

In the ‘8’, is the management of your resources, your time, your money, and the consideration of how you control and have power; how you lead yourself and others.  It is considered by some, the card of Divine Order.  It will be about how you order your life and live in the material world.  How you manage it and others.  It can be dictatorial, and overly controlling.  Be Mindful.

 

QUESTION TO PONDER

 

What does Divine Order mean to you?

Can you be a vulnerable leader and what does that mean anyway?

In what ways can you adjust and find balance?

What is the difference for you between ‘power over’ and power shared and given?

How might you find justice in an unjust world?

What doesn’t feel fair right now that you can make feel/be a little better?

What needs to get out of the way of your sense of balance?

What isn’t working in how you manage ‘thing’ and what can you do to adjust that?

Can you let go of being perfect, or doing it ‘perfect’ so that you actually get it done?

If you feel you are on a tightrope struggling to stay balanced and centered what might you do to change this?  What needs to happen?

How will you manage your resources?

What are feeling you are losing control over that maybe you need to re-calibrate what that control is?

What is your time management?

 

 

 

 

UPSIDE DOWN AGAIN… 12 … HangedOne/Empress

Standard

30 april 2012    >    12/3/21  >  HangedOne/Empress/Universe

 

Hi there.  The last day of April.  Does time seem to be flying?   It’s zooming in my world.  And today is an April shower.  The thing is, is that most of the spring flowers have come and gone and summer blooms are ready to burst.  Kinda crazy.

 

TAROT HAIKU

Down is up up down

view is perspective changing

The Universe opens

 

Today is a day for the Hanged One.  A ‘12’ leading to the ‘3’.  With the ‘21’ sending Universal reminders.  This is day/ or year, if it’s your birthday, to consider a new perspective in your life.  To take a creative view of how you have thus far aligned your life and you might need/desire to turn it a little upside down; take a look at it from another angle or two.  You might already have been feeling that life has turned you upside down and whether you were ready or not.. hahah.  here you are, and now what?  I am of the thought/feeling that If you don’t know what to do, ‘hang’ with the moments till you feel the time is ready and right.  The deal is that you may have to take your time and be patient with yourself and others while the process and perspective brews.  The Empress as your sidekick here, invites you to think creatively and nurture a new possibility.  Have some fun with it and life and risk making a few mistakes and consider yourself highly creative. The Universe, your other ally here, pushes at the edges of your life from a broader perspective, reminding you that you are indeed part of Infinite wisdom and only need to allow yourself to tap into that vastness.

 

QUESTIONS TO PONDER

Just take one question that might inspire you…or two… or three… take what you need

 

What new perspective might you need to consider?

How can you be more patient with yourself and others?

Can you remember that your have as much time as you need?

How do you feel about just letting go of your attachment to making a decision right now?

What one thing might you do to expand your view of the world?

Is there a class or creative project that is waiting for you to take action?

What does it feel like to wait and then maybe wait a little more and know that that is perfect?

What do you take soooo seriously that gets in the way of your joy?

How can you nurture yourself?  What does that mean anyway?

Can you create one day/evening a week for simply having fun?

REMEMBER FROM WHERE YOU CAME… 7/16

16 april 2012   >  7/16   > Chariot/Tower

Goodmorning…  another wet spring day in Michigan… And the days turn…

 

TAROT HAIKU

 

Wait to ride the wind

Herald the message beyond

Remember your seed

 

In the ‘7’, there is the investigator, the analyzer, the observer; he/she who misses nothing and gathers what they know into a deeper understanding of how things work and the reason for being.  They are on a need to know bases as they tend to be suspicious of others.  ‘7’ find inspiration in everything they take interest in. There is a tenaciousness about ‘7’s’, at times even a willful fervor when something is decided, it become nearly unshakeable in the truth of it.  ‘7’ desires to be nearly perfect at something/s.

 

The Charioteer, shares the story of gathering, investigating, observing something they feel passionate about. giving focus to a cause, or whatever it is that they feel called into life for their own special purpose.  They will take their time and become fluent in what holds their attention.  Shear will, will drive them on. 

The Tower card gives a story about what happens when the foundation of something keeps reaching beyond itself.  Reaching till it has grown into something that no longer understands or connects to the very root of what brought it into being in the first place.  And without the foundation of life secure and solid in the knowing of what it stands on, the Tower can take a tumble, needing to remember where it began and felt safest.

 

If today is your birthday, these are questions to consider for the whole year.  Grab one or all and see what stirs you up.  Change the wording around to make it feel right for you.  As you ponder these thoughts and questions, please take a moment to sit quietly and breathe.  Let your breath guide you into a quiet place for the questions to have a moment to brew and shimmer.  Invite your wisdom to be your guide.  And remember, if overwhelm sets in, take a very little step.  You have as much time as you need.

 

QUESTIONS TO PONDER

 

What needs to be gathered and investigated right now?

How will you give it your focus?

What incites your suspicions and how can you shift that into a positive outlook?

Is it time for you to take your project to the next level and what does that look like?

Is your foundation strong so that you can take some risks?

Have you gotten to far away from what ‘matters’ and might need to get back to basics?

What inspires you to give all of yourself to?

Does your will-fullness hold people to you or push then away and is that working for you?

BEDEVILED, BOTHERED, AND BEWILDERED ‘6’

Standard

15 april  2012…  >  6/15 >  Lovers/Devil

 crowley tarot…lovers

Oops… kinda off my days here.  and my addition leave a lot to be taken for.  Sorry.  I always marvel at how I do that with such simple math.  Only, I was caught in the death of my brother on that Empress day and clearly I had to make that all days till today.  So… back on track

I sure can use a Lovers kinda day.  How about you?

TAROT HAIKU

Love always sees you

Are you willing to be seen?

Live with open heart

 

Todays invitation is about relationships with others and yourself.  In the ‘6’ there is a great desire for harmony, there is the nurturer, the care giver, the humanitarian, the giving of the self so that others thrive, and the focus on hearth and home.  If your number is ‘6’ (add your date of birth together) you also have a charm about you that can be irresistible. Problems rise when you have given yourself away and have nothing for yourself.  It’s easy to see the Lovers in this number.  

Now that Devil… well…The Devil is the trickster, he/she who sets before you choices that tease you from your path and suggest that you might want to try something different, a new fruit to flavor your life.  When you begin to question who you are and what you do, the Devil will slip into your mind, and tickle at what challenges these questions. The Devil, that little poky voice within, pushes at your marginal resolve, into something that might not be the something you had in mind.  If you know what I mean?  The Devil will challenge your relationships; the ones you have with others and the the one you have with yourself. Thus, I am of the mind that the Devil performs a gift for you on your Path of life so that you can really have a sense of your integrity, your authenticity, and how you allow harmony and love in your life. 

 

QUESTION TO PONDER

 

How do you sustain harmony and balance in your life?

When do you notice that you have ‘giving yourself away’ and there isn’t enough for just you?

If the ‘Devil made you do it’, what would you have done otherwise?

What patterns rise for you when life is going well and balanced, and you get restless to stir the pot up by creating disharmony?  Why?

How do you make sure that you are taking care of yourself as well as others?

How does the ‘be-devilment’ remind you of who you really are?

How do you trick yourself into believing the unbelievable?

How will you nurture your relationships in a healthy way?

How do you make friends with your devilish side?

What would you like to do differently from your usually pattern of caregiving that still feels like you are giving and receiving?
