Standard

12 may 2012   >  0/4/13  >  Fool/Emperor/Death

 

TAROT HAIKU

There is no dark grave

When Light shimmers everywhere

Every Fool know that

 

Hi… hope this day for the Fool finds you ready to jump on in.  In the Tarot invitation here , I also invite you to pass this blog on to other interested people and I welcome some feedback from you.  Thanks…

 22, that master number that adds to ‘4’, the Emperor, and represents The Fool in the Tarot cards, invites you to JUMP…  eek.  There is innocence in the Fool.  There is a freedom in the not being burden with things, and defined thoughts, and ways of doing this and that.  The Fool steps into life, jumps into life, falls into life, to find life, to find his/her way.  At some point in freedoms jump the Fool embraces the Emperor: order, structure, rules, definition, form, how to run that castle well and keep the kingdom steady and organized.  Then… Death comes along and says… “Hey.. ya’ll got lots of stuff, and things, and minds sets that are limiting, and over ruled and defined.  That box is seriously confining.  Time to let it go.  Time to transform limited thinking and living to give space for something fresh, alive, and new.”  

And so this journey of ‘4’ comes into being with this set of Tarot cards.

 

The Invitation for you if this is your birthday or just another glorious day… is to consider all of the above with these questions:

TAROT QUESTIONS.

 

What might need ‘letting go of’ to give space for something new and improved?

Can you ‘jump’ into your life with a new idea, a refresher course in beingness?

How do you limit yourself?

What does your box look like?

What rules, structures, definitions need reevaluation?

What have you always wanted to do and were too afraid of the consequences and breaking of rules to ‘jump’ into?

What lights you up and brings you to your playful, child-like, enthusiastic self?

What does your inner child desire?

What does freedom mean to you?

Can you imagine death as a transformative experience …Figuratively speaking?

What ‘stuff’ needs to be boxed and sent to the thrift shop?

Do you need to be boxed and sent to the thrift shop?  lol

SEE A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Standard

 TAROT HAIKU

You are the only

One that can make a difference

Make a difference

Hi… Bright blessings to you this a.m.  Let’s take a breath together.  Feel some calm and peace as we enter this point of our day.

 

A ‘12’ day.  Lots of ’12’ days these days.  Tho’  it always comes to the ‘3’, the Empress, it first comes to ‘12’ which for me makes it a bit more of a HangedOne’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.  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.

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:

 

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.

QUIVER AND QUAKER… ’11’ PASSION/LUST

Standard

10 may 2012    >  11/2/20 >  Lust/Passion/Balance/Priestess/Aeon/Judgement

 

TAROT HAIKU

Feel the sweet point’s light

Let It rise to fill you up

Be Springs quaking bloom

 

Hi there.  thanks for your visit.  

A day. a year to step into ‘11’.  Lust/Passion/Balance.  Finding the sweet point in life that feels passionate and highly creative.  Feeling that fire in your belly, that desire you have yearned for, the recreation of what ‘turned-you-on’ long ago and you let it fizzle away…what you wish to shine up and give luster to.  It is a time to notice what internal dialogue you have going on about what lights you up.  And is it the kind of conversation with yourself that you are enjoying? Feeling and noticing your inner urges to express yourself.  Finding ways to be appropriate in that exchange between what inspires you and what feels right.  

‘11’ finds it way to the ‘2’, the number of exchange, finding counsel within yourself or finding counsel in a trusted friend or therapist.  Sitting quietly and allowing yourself to feel and see beyond the veil between what is obvious and what lies hidden.

And… lastly, within the story of the Aeon/Judgement card rests the call to accountability.  Discerning what is presented before you and making ‘judgement calls’ appropriately. 

 This is a day or year, should it be your birthday, to look beyond the veil of your limited mind and feel from your intuition or your gut a larger possibility.  It might not be the whole truth and it might be a bit more inspired information to ignite your passion.  

 

QUESTION TO PONDER

 

What inspires you to get up each morning?

How might you shine up your life and buff it to sparkle?

Who needs you to counsel them without it being about you?

Do you need counsel now to get out of a rut?

What sits right in front of your face that gets in the away of your seeing the totality of all you can be?

What seeds of life and inspiration, luster and passion do you plant now so they can bloom in your summer?

How might you put a Spring in your step and a seed in your earthly life?

What have you been talking about and pondering that now needs to rise up and feel the light of your action?

What have you needed to say that you have put off?  How can you say it lovingly?

How do you balance your busy mind with trusting your intuition?

 How do you give trust to your intuition?

What do your instincts tell you?

 

 

TAKE NOTICE IN THE TURNING… 10/19/1

Standard

9 may 2012   > 10/19/1  >  Wheel of Fortune/Sun/Magician

 

TAROT HAIKU

Magic lives in turns

Of life’s wheel up and down round

Take time to notice

 

And around it comes again..Good Morning.  Where in the Wheel of Life do you stand?

A ‘1’ kinda day and year should it be your birthday.  Before you get to the ‘1’ you meet with the ‘10’, the Wheel of Fortune.  So I tend to give a little extra to this card as you express your ‘1’ energy.  The ‘1’ of this card is filled with the turning of life.

 

 A day of being #1, knowing your Oneness, knowing that you are at One with all there is and all you are.  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?

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?

PONDER AND RECLUSE… ‘9’ and the Hermit/Moon

Standard

8 may 2012   >   9/18  >  Hermit/Moon

 

 GoodMorning… The canopy of trees glitter green this morning in the rising Sun.  They are almost fully expanded.  It’s beautiful.  There is comfort living beneath their spread.

 

TAROT HAIKU

Ponder and recluse

Take what you need in your time

There is enough Light

 

 This day or if it’s your birthday is a time 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 urges 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 feel 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, poking hard and undone, going no where.

 

  ‘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’  needs 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

 

What wisdom have you gathered that you can honor and share?

What is your ‘light’ and how do you gather your Light and share it?

Can you take some time to just be calm and quiet with no doing?

What does it mean for you to ‘lighten up’?

Do you have project or two or three that you’d like to finish and what does that mean for you?

Can you take some down time?

What needs ‘pulling together’?

Can you honor your own needs and say no to something when you need time alone?

Who needs you to say ‘no, not now’?

Think of what the Hermit means to you and how do you feel about that expression within yourself? 

What inner wisdom is urging you to pay attention to it and listen?

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?

 

 

 

 

WESAK MOON… SUPER… ‘7’

Standard

6 may 2012  > 7/16  >  Charioteer/Tower

 

How about that ‘Super’ Moon last night?  Here is a site that gives you info on the wonder of it.

http://www.mysticmamma.com/super-full-moon-in-scorpio-may-5th-2012-beltane-wesak-celebration/

When the moon is full, think of your own sense of fullness.  What you bring into fruition.  Remember those ‘seeds’ you planted last month or some time ago?  Those seeds of possibilities that you had hope for?  Now is time to see where they have all grown.  Are they where you want them?  How will you nurture them into all that you hoped they might be?

 

The number for the day is ‘7’.  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?

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?

 

LIONS N’ TIGERS N’ LOVERS… oh my… ‘6’

Standard

5 may  2012    >   6/15   >   Lovers/Devil

 

TAROT HAIKU

Devil may not care

In the tease, taunt, and torture

Notice loves message

 

 

Good afternoon… Late in the blogging.  Sorry.  I suppose I should just to tomorrow and then, someone is gonna like today’s invitation, I’m sure of it.  (My story)

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 left for yourself and you wonder “What about me?”. If and when that happens, I invite you to consider whether you were giving of your self without expectation as it is in the expectation that can make the giving not as much from the heart as you might have hoped.  It’s easy to see the Lovers in this number.  

 

The Lovers is all about relationship with yourself and with others.  The Devil as the ally can seem like one of the those cards you go “REALLLLY?”  Ya. really, the Devil challenges you to be accountable for what you do and say.  The Devil will indeed poke at your edges, bedevil you into thinking/feeling/imagining that perhaps you are wrong, making bad decisions, or that something is alway better just over there where the grass must be greener.  The Devil taunts, teases, seeks to finesse all relationships into a place where you might find the wisdom to trust your own worth and decision making power.

 

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?

 

NO BOX LEFT BEHIND

TAROT HAIKU

Clever chemist stirs

Impossible mixture

Magic everywhere

 

Goodmorning… May your moments be joyous and full of goodness.  Thanks for your interest and visit here.

Today is 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 not and see what happens.

*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.

Also if you read the previous post, The Hierophant Knows, you get maybe a little different take on this.  Thanks again.

 

QUESTIONS TO PONDER

 

What might you need to re-source?

What urges you to give it try but your fear of the outcome gets in the way?

Can you do it anyway?

If you got out of your box, what would it feel/look/taste like?

Can you get out of your box and know that it’s still there supporting you on your journey?

Who might you talk to that can help you?

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

How might you bring a spiritual practice into your life?

What small step can you take that pulls you out of the doldrumss of life and fills you with creativity and joy?

How do you stay grounded exploring ‘out-of-the-box?

How do you allow your feelings to expand as you reach out?

What thoughts are prevalent in this and need more clarification as you explore?

What ‘lights-you up’ and fills your passion as you explore the great beyond?
