Be aware of boxed up

Untie the ribbon that binds you

Pop out of the cube


Hi there and welcome to this last day of May and an invitation from Alchemy, #14.  Anything is possible and if it can it will.  What box do you need out of?

Art/Alchemy, invites you into the gift of creativity in a way that is about considering the magic that is around and with-in you. Are you ready to take some creative risks?.  Considering turning stone into gold.  I know, Right?  The impossible meets the unlike; you stir those together and you get….. it’s a mystery.  They may work, they may not, and maybe you try it again.  Hopefully you try it again, and risk the wonder of finding a new path, a new thing, a new way to express yourself.  For me, the gift of Art is making mistakes that aren’t really mistakes and are really an opportunity to open the door, Get out of the box (#5), and see an opportunity to expand your creative being.

 ‘5’ invites the resourceful you to start gathering and thinking out of the box.  It can look like the five pointed star. Today is a day/year to consider how attached you are to all that form and order, and do you need to get out of your ‘box’?  In other words, are you confined, defined, stuck in a structure in your life that  is not really expansive and creative anymore?  Are you mixing the improbably with the unlikely to see what wonder might happen?


The Hierophant is a spiritual leader who gathers and shares information; resourcing the ways of the world and the inherent diversity of the people.  Deepening the understanding that differences and likenesses fill the circle of life with a multitude of beliefs, and that within that is magic.  The Hierophant can be an encyclopedia of life.

Imagine the wonder of these two archetypes stretching beyond the ‘box’ of life creatively resources and exploring the great beyond.  Whatever that might be for you.




What box do you need to get out of?

What creative risks are you willing to take?

What resources do you need to gather?

How can you stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone?

What opportunities is standing right in front of you that you keep avoiding?

Do the boundaries you make for yourself actually support the life you desire to live?

What happens when you flow against the typical flow of life?

Can you do it scared?

Can you let go of your attachment to making it perfect and just see what happens?

How does perfection keep you from enjoying your life?

How can you remain safe and secure and still stretch yourself out of your box?


If you have any questions that you’d like to ask me… please do.

Go and do it scared

Fear holds you if you let it

Soar into life free


And what might you transform today?    Good morning.  A day/year, if it’s your birthday, of Transformation.  Making space for what you always believe was your heart’s desire and life cluttered it up…. with your help.  

Death.  Many of us don’t like to talk about death or consider it.  There is a great fear around it,especially when it concerns physical death.  I’m of the mind and heart that this card is more about ‘the death of a way of doing things, or maybe the ending of something that needed ending long ago… or maybe bringing closure to that thing that never really was going any where.  What is that you have in your life that binds you to some discontent that never feeds your soul quite right?  Can you Let It Go?  It might take a little baby step at a time.  It might not even be something you give much attention to.  It might be an old pattern that you repeat and repeat, hopeful that it will one day surprise you and Voila, it’s all good.  What ever holds you from the fullness of yourself, I invite you to consider letting it go and giving space for something that Fills you up with goodness and light.




What holds you from having all the joy you deserve? Name three.

Who told you that you can not have your heart’s desire?

What is your heart’s desire?

What does transforming a situation mean for you?

How have you cluttered up your life and what can you do about that?

What is one small thing you can let go of today to start the process of releasing old crap?

What scares you into complacency?

How does death scared you?

How can you live your life free of fear?

What can keep you grounded as you release old stories and things that need letting go of?

What boundaries need your attention as you attend to making life joyful?

What does it mean to you to take the risk of letting go and taking a jump more fully into your life?

24 may 2012   >   16/7   >  Tower/Chariot


Good morning… Welcome to Invitation Tarot.  Doesn’t it feel like there is 37 minutes to an hour these days?  Sure does for me.  Zooom.



Rooted, strong, secure

Reaching, expanding, growing

Always remember home


Today invites you to ‘16’ and the Tower.  The Tower card gives a story about what happens when the foundation of something keeps reaching beyond itself in a way that you begin to forget what base you started from.  Reaching till what your ‘grass root’ knowledge grows into something that no longer understands or connects to that very root of what brought the idea/the creation, into being in the first place.  And without the foundation resting securing beneath the journey of growth and expansion, and the constant reconnecting with that foundation; what gathered momentum and growth can forget where the birthing of an idea came from. Without the connection to your roots, to what grounds you and holds you secure and safe, you can take a tumble.

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.


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.




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?

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?




23 may 2012   >   6/15  >  Lovers/Devil



It’s a festival

The air is filled with heart beats

be the love you want


Good morning… Can you feel all the love you’re gonna be having and giving today?  Relationships are the keynote speaker today and that means with you and with those that give meaning to your life wether you like it or not.  And then there is always the relationship you have with yourself.  Now, there’s a tricky one!  How’s that going anyway?


Getting real’ with yourself and others in that exchange between people that requires depth and integrity.  Saying what you mean from your heart. Nurturing the love and kindness of life.   Pausing before you spill some inappropriate honesty that really doesn’t serve you or a loved one.  Cause… ya’ll know that the bedevilment card lurks in the peripheral, and can feel compelled to say just about any ol’ thing to stir the pot of goodness into something not so nice.  That is the gift of the Devil: to hear that voice that has no filters before it actually pours out of your mouth. Cause, you know when you have that funky attitude going on.  Right?


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 left for you.  It’s easy to see the Lovers in this number.  


‘15’ is the Devil card… and how you get to the Devil, is by ‘1’, the magician, and ‘5’, the Hierophant.  There is certainly magic and the twirling of the element going on when the Devil is hungry, and there is that Self-righteousness, that can be in the Hierophant.  Put the whirl and twirl of magical thinking and the Self-righteousness of a person that imagines them-selves superior and you can have some negative behavior going on.

Be mind-full and kind.




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?

Take your magic wand

Nothing is impossible

The Universe waits


Now that we have transformed our yesterday or maybe that’s what you get to do all year if it’s your birthday, we come to a day of Alchemy.  The Art of putting the impossible with the improbable and making magic happen.  The risk of mixing together unlikely situations, or people, or whatever, and seeing what new and wondrous element comes into being.

With the wisdom of the Hierophant, the deeper the spiritual component is, the deeper the experience can be.  The Hierophant enjoys the research and resourcing that it takes to bring differences and likeness together.  It’s a trust your inner wisdom opportunity.  It’s trusting that you have gather what you need to bring to the cauldron of life the magic of mixing it all up and making something work.

It’s an outta the box kinda day. ‘5’ invites the resourceful you to start gathering and thinking out of the box.  It can look like the five pointed star.  Remember yesterday when the Emperor, who very much likes order, structure, and abide-able rules, laid claim to your day or birth-year?  Today is a day/year to consider how attached you are to all that form and order, and do you need to get out of your ‘box’?  In other words, are you confined, defined, stuck in a structure in your life that  is not really expansive and creative anymore?

Today is day to keep a watchful eye.  To gather info, that is relevant to you.  Perhaps, a project needs you to dig a little deeper, or looking outside your box is necessary for your sanity.  Maybe, you feel moved by the spirit of something you can’t define and feel the urge to explore it.  If you want to know ‘everything’ than you have to go and learn about it.  Alchemy/Art, invites you to get creative with that.  Try something that you were pretty sure wasn’t going to work that way and do it anyway.  Mix the unlikely with the probably and see what happens.




How do you step out of the routine of you life and seek something different and full-filling?

What seems impossible that you would either like to step more deeply into and see what happens, or you might need to let it go?

What feels impossible and yet you’re not done figuring it out?

What might me an unlikely thing to do  that actually might work?

What keeps you from exploring your creativity?

Do feel trapped in your ‘box’ and in what ways that are healthy might you reach out of that?

When you think of spiritual leader, can you imagine your own inner spiritual guide and what does he/she/they feel and look like?

What research might you need doing to take you to the next step?

Are you missing the connection to your own spiritual practice?

How might you bring a spiritual practice into your life?

What resources do you need and who do you know that can help you?

Breathe Breathe breathe breathe breathe

Breathe breath breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe

NOw is all there is


How about that Eclipse last night?  I was in a field with about 40 people singing, dancing, meditating.  It was ecstasy. That’s how I took a look at life from another perspective yesterday.

How about you?


Today…. After such an amazing evening, the invitation from Death arrives. Death speaks to me about taking yesterdays enchantment and elemental connections that filled me up with the grace and glory of the sacred, which is in All of everything, and transform it.  Allowing today to let go.  Let go and give space for more of the sacred to come into my life in a mind-full way.

Letting each moment die off for the next moment to fill.  Again and again.

I think it’s a bit like the cup being full and pouring.  filling and pouring.  Receiving and giving.  Letting go for more spaciousness in life.  Feeling the fool jump into life.




How do you let go and give more spaciousness to your life, your heart?

What has held you to something that doesn’t serve your highest good and needs release?

What will you transform?

Can you live in the moment?  the Be Here NOw?

What does living an inspired life mean to you?





20 may 2012…   >  12/3/21   >  Hanged One/Empress/Universe


Morning… for my miss on yesterday, Please jump to ‘log’ Quiver and Quake, 10th of May.  Sorry about that… and todays invite.



Upside down world view

Invites inclusivity

We are all One Light


Today is a day for the Hanged One. A lot of Hanged ONe days, wouldn’t you agree?  I think that is very telling as we aligned ourselves with Universal energy and the seeming quickening of time, that the need to take a look from every perspective is important as we evolve with our planet Earth.  I like to feel like I’m doing my best to stay fully present in the moment.  Sometimes needing to stand on my proverbial head for a new look see around me.  How’s that for you?


 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.



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


What new perspective might you need to consider?

What is one new perspective that you feel you might include in your life?

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?
