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.

SHINE YOUR LIFE RIGHT UP

Standard

28 May 2012   >  11/20/2   >   Passion/Lust/Aeon/Judgement/Priestess

TAROT HAIKU

Inside is passion

Open the door fearlessly

Priestess your way home

 

Happy birthday Diane.  

Today is a day, a year to give yourself to your passions;  that fire in your belly, that desire you have yearned for, that re-creation of what ‘turned-you-on’ 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.  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.   What is you Passion?  And can you take the risk of giving yourself fully to it?  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’, and the Priestess… 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, ‘20’ card rests the call to accountability.  Being called upon to access life, or a situation that might asked for clarity.  Discerning what is presented before you and making ‘judgement calls’ appropriately. This ‘judgement’ is not the critical self pointing a finger at others or yourself, this is the kind of judgement that is needed to make appropriate decisions when faced with many options.

 

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?

 

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.

VULNERABLE LEADERSHIP

Standard

25 may 2012    >  8/17  >  Balance/Adjustment/The Star

 

TAROT HAIKU

Lead vulnerably

Be seen transparently whole

Hold space for heaven

 

Hi.  Good day to you and yours.  Summer heat is rising on this Spring day.  It’s a new kind of weather pattern shifting around us.  I prefer to stay in the Be Here Now and not go into any projected future.  Enjoy my moments.  And you?

 

Today’s invitation is held in Balance/Adjustment, along with it’s Tarot ally, The Star (#17) which reminds you that health and well being is important and that the health and well being of All that is around you is equally important. 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, and being able to show your vulnerability is a gift to your living.  And that you just might be standing between ‘heaven and earth’ acting as a vehicle for change; a conduit for goodness.  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?

 

 

STAYING IN TOUCH WITH YOUR ROOTS

Standard

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.

 

TAROT HAIKU

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.

 

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?

 

GIVIN’ THE LOVIN’

Standard

23 may 2012   >   6/15  >  Lovers/Devil

 

TAROT HAIKU

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.

 

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?

 

 

IS THAT REALLY IMPOSSIBLE?

Standard

22 may 2012  >  14/5  > Alchemy/Art/Hierophant

 

TAROT HAIKU

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.

 

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 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?

BREATH WITH DEATH

Standard

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

 

TAROT HAIKU

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.

 


QUESTIONS TO PONDER

 

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?

 

 

THE UP-SIDE OF UPSIDE DOWN

Standard

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.

 

TAROT HAIKU

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.

 

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?

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?
