ADJUSTMENT PLEASE #8

Standard

17 april 2012   >  8/17  >   Balance/Adjustment/The Star

 

Good morning… It’s a beautiful Spring morning.  The canopy of giant Oak trees continues to open their leaves.  Dogwood bloom, birds are busy building their nests in my bushes. Squirrels, do their squirrely thing, torturing my cat. I took a big old inhale and felt all green and bloomy.  Life is good.

 

TAROT HAIKU

 

No line of balance

Adjust from center outward

Join life’s circle

 

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?

LOVER’S BE-DEVILMENT #6

Standard

6 April  2012    >  6/15   >   Lovers/Devil

 

TAROT HAIKU

 

Bedevil me lover

Tease me in the trickery

passion my heart song

 

Good morning Tarot enthusiast or maybe you’re a curious lurker.  It’s all good. 

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 you.  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. 

 

As always…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.

 

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?

 

INVITATION TAROT/NUMEROLOGY DAILY… ‘7’ … CHARIOT

Standard

26 march 2012    >   7/16  >   Chariot/Tower

 

TAROT HAIKU

Gather your focus

Will down the shooting starlight

Aim inspiration

 

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?

TAROT HAIKU

Unlikely mixture

Bubbles and seethes in cauldron

No more hate and war

 

Good morning.  I love a day of Art and the gathering of resources.  A day of ‘5’ and outta the box.  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 and they may not and maybe you try it again.  

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.  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.

QUESTION TO PONDER

 

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 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?

TAROT HAIKU

 

Find luck in thirteen 

Transform the way to Folly

Lighten up your load

 

A lucky ‘13’ day.  That’s how I like to think of it.  A day, a year if it’s your birthday, of transformation.  Ending that give way to new beginnings.  Ridding of old ‘stuff’ to make way for the new.  ‘4’, likes order, structure, rules, a form to work in.  ‘13’, questions all that and yet also has rules and structure relative to the giving up attachment to things as well as thoughts and feelings that don’t serve your life.    The Fool, well…he/she advocates surrender to the highest good, the freedom of being all of who you can be.  Jump into life fully.

 

QUESTIONS TO PONDER

 

What will you let go of to make way for something new?

What holds you to a way of being, living, acting, that doesn’t serve your life?

How does the thought, idea, feeling of transformation influence you?

Who’s rules have you been following, and do they work for you?

How can you create the life you deserve to have?

When will you let go?

Can you give form to your feelings?

What does leading an inspired life mean to you?

TAROT HAIKU

Shine up your moments

Polish the space between space

Inspire expansion

 

 

The first full day of Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere. Yesterday being the Equinox. I wake to the calming sound of birds singing and the smell of green wafting through my window. My kitty calling out to be fed. (not always so calming)

Today is a day to give yourself to your passions, what you wish to shine up and give luster to.  A day to notice what internal dialogue you have going on and is it the kind of conversation with yourself that you are enjoying.  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?

 TAROT HAIKU

Heart in harmony

Charms the care-full lovers call

Give is to receive


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. When problems rise it most often because you have given yourself away and have nothing let for yourself.  It’s easy to see the Lovers in this number.  

The Lover’s, which is today’s card, are all of the above.  There can be a sacrifice that a LOver will give on behalf of the Loved ones.  And… if you give yourself all away in the hope of love finding you worthy, than you missed the point of it all. When there is nothing left for you to nurture and support within, there is not much if any to support anyone else.  It is easy at this point to become a victim of all that giving away and lay blame on other for not giving love in return.  Empty, hurt, and lonely, you can fester in that blame and whatever charms you had are gone.  The thing is….You are already worthy.  If you give without ‘expectation’ of any return, you give from the heart and lose nothing and blame no one.

In that vulnerability is when that trickster, the Devil seeks to ease on in to you mind.  YOur own bedevilment, not someone else’s.  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.

Standard

5 march 2012   >   4/13/0  >   Emperor/Death/Fool

 

TAROT HAIKU

Know your domain well

Steward well the land’s family

Release chaos hold

 

Welcome and good morning.  Seems like the days fly by, right?  Today is a ‘4’ day.  I keep meaning to give you the methodology that I use to include the 22 Major Arcana in the typical number system 1-9.  It is a lengthy explanation that would take more time than I have in this moment, tho’ I will at some point, or you can see if you can find Mary Kay Greers book, Tarot Constellations.  I can say that I don’t add the number straight across tho’ they will indeed get you to a single number as all methods will.  I add the number up like this….      5

      3

              2012

                                  ______

                                   2020 > 2+2 = 4   thus the Emperor

 

Death #13 and The Fool #0 are part of the ‘constellation’ ‘4’.  Why the Fool?  Well, in The Major Arcana there are ‘22’ cards.  The Fool being ‘0’. thus the Fool takes on the 22cd card which adds to ‘4’.  Since I want to include the Tarot in this Invitation of Tarot and numerology, I want all the Major Arcana, so I add them up this way to get to the first Tarot card which might be a double digit. It might have added to 13 today which would have made today lend itself more to transformation; endings and new beginnings which is a bit different than the Emperors desire to put things in order: to give form and structure, rules and securities to the ‘kingdom/queendom’.  Always…. I include the numerical compliment of each Tarot card so that you can have a feeling for some of the energy that is assisting the primary card, which for today is the  Emperor.

 Have I confused you completely?  Sorry if I have.  Basically, today…. get your house in order, a day to see what needs doing and what needs to be done with.  Look at those piles of stuff or that thing you were going to move around, or that list that keeps building up and not attended to, and get busy.  The Emperor of you has got some business to attend to today.

 

**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

Consider the the form and structure you ‘run’ your life in and with, and is it working for you?  

Is your ‘Castle’ operational in the way you like it? 

If there is chaos around your space, and what little thing might you do to shift that?

What agreements did you make with yourself to get things done and they are not done even a little?

Can you make new agreements with yourself to get things back on track?

If you share space with another are you keeping your agreement of order together?

And if not what might you do to get back on track there?

Does the Emperor of you need a little help and who can help you best?

(The Emperor knows who does what best and can delegate very well)

How well do you know your ‘king/queendom’?
