Divination

Your 2015 #Samhain Week Vibe #ForesightFriday #Divination

I felt the need to pull more than one card today…and from different decks. Not sure why, but hey, who the hell am I to question the nudges? So, let’s see what we’ve got going for us in the next week, shall we?

Divination Method: The Secret Language of Animals Oracle Cards & The Goddess Guidance Oracle

Card(s) Drawn: Koala & Abundantia

Your 2015 #Samhain Week Vibe #ForesightFriday #Divination

Key Word(s): (Koala) Calm, Perspective, Imagination, Ease (Abundantia) Prosperity

Affirmation (Animal Oracle): “I breathe deep with a warm smile and relax into the arms of the great Tree of Life. I feel peace, calm, and new possibility. I bring this wherever I go.”

Basic Message (Goddess Oracle): “The universe is pouring its abundance out to you. Be open to receiving.”

My Interpretation: First, let me just say that I’m liking these two cards together. It’s a nice vibe. It seems right to me that, although many will be having all sorts of raucous and crazy fun as they celebrate Halloween tomorrow (who am I kidding, most are already celebrating it, LOL), most of my readers will be celebrating Samhain. This involves a bit more reverence than revelry. As we honor our Ancestors, and/or commune with Spirit(s); we also welcome in a New Year, and all the possibilities that come with it, as the wheel turns once more to begin a new cycle.

Koala is kind of the ultimate example for the Witch. His Calm, Ease, and Perspective are the embodiment of “Soft of eye and light of touch, speak ye little, listen much” of the Wiccan Rede. He doesn’t push his ways on others, he leads and teaches by example. By doing so, he radiates these qualities, and becomes a catalyst to stirring the very same in those he comes in contact with.

His appearance here means the coming week should be one of calm, peaceful, reflection…be still and be open to the opportunities this new year will offer to us.

Now let’s throw Abundantia into this mix, and we see that these opportunities shall include abundance. I do not see this as financial abundance (sorry peeps!)…but more Energetic & Spiritual. Consider her as a bit of a booster for Koala’s energy in this week’s draw. Which, to me, means those of us who shall be celebrating Samhain in a Magickal sense, are in for some massive and powerful experiences. Do not be frightened or overcome by the energy and/or the encounters you may have. Be calm, retain your perspective, and receive the Abundant Gifts that are to be bestowed upon you.

A Rhiannon State of Mind #ForesightFriday

Divination Method: The Goddess Guidance Oracle

Card(s) Drawn: Rhiannon

A Rhiannon State of Mind #ForesightFriday

Key Word(s): Sorceress

Basic Message: “You are a magical person who can manifest your clear intentions into reality.”

My Interpretation: Rhiannon is so fitting for the week leading up to Samhain! She is a Welsh Goddess and that is mainly known for lovingly transporting the souls of the dead to the Otherworld. The lovely part of this, is that she stays with them to help them adjust to the ethereal portion of their life. She is a shape-shifter that can be called on to aid in spirit communication, help with transitions, artistic/creative endeavors, and to bring things to manifest.

So what does this mean for this week? For some it means that it’s time for your dreams to come true…for others, time to move your arse and MAKE your dreams come  true. It is also a time of transition, and dealing with the aftermath of recent ones. Are you noticing a little “two sides of the same coin” thing happening here? Well, that’s because this is the basic energy of this time of year. With the veil between worlds thinning, the lines between opposites are being blurred (life/death)…but also brought into focus (messages linking past/present, etc.).

So this week, tap into your Inner Sorceress (you too, fellas! 😉 ) and commune with the energy of Rhiannon. Here’s a little help from Stevie Nicks to get you into your Rhiannon State of Mind:

Go With the Flow 10/16/15 - 10/23/15 #ForesightFriday #Divination #Pagan

Divination Method: The Secret Language of Animals Oracle Cards

Card(s) Drawn: Dolphin

Go With the Flow #ForesightFriday #Divination #Pagan

Key Word(s): Joy, Light, Flow, Compassion

Affirmation: “I follow my bliss, knowing I am worthy to experience joy. Riding the waves of inspiration within me, I bring great joy and light into the world.”

My Interpretation: Firstly, let me say: OMG! DOLPHIN!!!!! OK, now that I’ve got that out of my system, let me say that this coming week has the potential to be pretty awesome…

Dolphins are playful, compassionate, full of exuberance, and just goes with the flow. It’s difficult to be down in the dumps when watching dolphins play in the water, they even look like they’re smiling. They go with the flow, but they do not go it alone. They are social creatures with a very strong sense of community. We know they are compassionate creatures, as there are countless tales of dolphins coming to the aid of humans in distress. While they are gentle and friendly, don’t let that smiling face fool ya, they will also mess you (or a shark) up if need be.

What I find interesting about this draw, is something many usually forget about dolphins. They essentially exist between worlds. They evolved from land mammals and developed the necessary physiology to allow them to survive & thrive in the depths of the sea; while continuing to breathe air into lungs and give birth to fully developed offspring. Think of it this way…the surface of the water is the “veil between worlds” and it is something they cross with ease. It is a part of their nature and adds to the depth of their character. Think about the depths of the sea as the Otherworld. Dolphins could survive as surface dwellers, yet they occasionally spend up to 20 minutes at a time below the surface.

Why do I find this interesting? Well, as we approach Samhain, the veil between the worlds is thinning, making it easier to communicate with those on the other side. Since Dolphins move between their 2 worlds with such ease…this could be a good week to start delving into the Spirit Side of Life, and begin working with your Ancestors in preparation for Samhain.

So, this is what I suggest you do this week:

~ Go with the flow

~ Connect with family (blood or chosen), friends, and that which brings you joy

~ Show compassion to others…but don’t forget to be compassionate with yourself as well

~ Honor your Ancestors

I shall leave you with this video I took while whale watching in California. It’s a pod of dolphins that came to swim along side the boat for a bit. It gets a bit manic in spots, and I recommend a low volume (there’s lots of wind noise, and I may have been a wee bit excited to be so close to one of my Totem Animals). Hopefully it’s enough to kick-start your joy. 🙂

 

 

Life has gotten in the way again, and for that I apologize, but I did pull a card on Friday, and I will now clue you in to what the vibe is for this week (hey, better late than never, right??).

Divination Method: The Goddess Guidance Oracle

Card(s) Drawn: Hathor

Your Really Late #ForesightFriday Forecast for 10/10/15 - 10/16/15

Key Word(s): Receptivity

Basic Message: “Allow yourself to receive. This will increase your intuition, energy, and ability to give to others.”

My Interpretation: We give, give, give, and give some more…yet forget that sometimes we also need to get a little something for ourselves. Once again…this week is about finding a balance. It’s perfectly natural, and OK, to want to help and nurture others. In fact, it’s pretty awesome to do so…but sometimes YOU’RE the one that needs to be taken care of, and it would be in your best interest to be open to it…or perhaps even request it.

Being receptive to receiving energy – whether in the form of help, advice, nurturing, or straight up energy – helps us to be open to receiving other things as well. When we are receptive, we are more likely to hear the messages that our Spirit Guides, Deities, and even our Ancestors have to share with us.

This is the time to listen. Be still, and open those ears! Let go of any guilt you may be feeling about the help and support you need, it only weighs you down. Receiving help, guidance and nurturing with an open heart that is not weighed down with guilt allows you to acknowledge it as the wonderful gift that it is.

This week’s vibe is one of healing, growth, and learning so, during this time, ask for the help you need.

Hathor also indicates that the time is ripe for experiencing a boost in psychic abilities… so keep listening for what is coming through the ever-thinning veil as we get one week closer to Samhain.

Remember to breathe…remember to not close yourself off…remember to listen…

Proceed With Caution 10/3/15 - 10/9/15 #ForesightFriday

Yes, I’m aware that this Foresight Friday post is actually getting to you on Saturday. I apologize for the late posting, but my brain just wasn’t being cooperative and forthcoming with the thinking and word making yesterday. I did pull the card, I just wasn’t able to form a cohesive sentence, lol. So, without any further delay, here’s what we’re dealing with for the week of 10/3/15 – 10/9/15.

Divination Method: The Witches Tarot

Card(s) Drawn: Two of Swords

Proceed With Caution #ForesightFriday

Key Word(s): Opposition, Compromise

My Interpretation: So, perhaps things haven’t gone so well during this Mercury Retrograde. All those plans of being introspective and going inward may have been trumped by interactions that just plain old disrupted our Zen. That’s ok, I’m certain we’re not alone in this.

The Two of Swords tells us that any conflicts we have been having are currently in the midst of a cease fire. A peace has been restored…albeit a fragile one. Perhaps you have reached an impasse…or are choosing to pretend things are fine…or you’re just plain tired of fighting. Whatever the case, the good news is the carnage (physical, emotional, spiritual…etc.) is no longer actively occurring.

I doubt that the situation is over, but the Two of Swords is basically telling us to cool our proverbial jets for the moment and just let sleeping dogs lie. We’re in the final week of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle, and it’s just plain old better to leave well enough alone right now. Instead, try to relax, and maybe do something else that will take your mind off of the situation entirely. Enjoy the break from whatever it is…and find as much balance within yourself, and in your daily life as possible.

There are probably things you still wish to say or do, but this week is truly NOT THE TIME. Wait it out for a bit. You’ll either realize the situation isn’t nearly as dire as you perceived it to be, or you will find the proper way to deal with it.

Hang in there folks, the 9th is the last day of the Retrograde…Until then: Proceed with Caution.

The Numbers Don't Lie #ForesightFriday #Divination

Today I decided to play with a different deck. It’s one I’ve had for a few years, but never really pulled it out…it seems as though today is the day. 🙂

 

Divination Method: Magic of Numbers Oracle

Card(s) Drawn: 32, 14, 24

The Numbers Don't Lie #ForesightFriday

Key Word(s): (32) Growth, (14) Moderation, (24) Completion

My Interpretation:

This coming week the time is right to take a step forward. 32 tells us that we can do this by sharing and delegating our tasks…just be sure not to step on anyone’s toes in the process.

Things will go smoother if you stay positive and good-natured. It’s good to want to achieve your goals, but 14 tells us that now is the time for patience, and adaptability. Don’t let your ambition get out of control, as that will surely lead to that stepping on toes thing you should be avoiding. 😉

When all is said and done, if you heed the advice of 32 & 14, you’ll simply need to put the finishing touches in place, and VIOLA! You shall be greatly satisfied by your accomplishment(s).

So, I picked up my cards this morning and was shuffling away and a card fell out. I think “Ok, so I guess this is the one”. I place it on my little cloth and then….the nudge. Gotta pull a second card because, as you know, you just don’t ignore the nudge. I placed the second card next to the first, and it all made sense (to me at least 😉 ).

Divination Method: The Secret Language of Animals Oracle Cards

Card(s) Drawn: Lotus Blue Butterfly, Tree Frog

Meditation, Reflection, and Transformation. Oh My! #ForesightFriday #Divination #Pagan

Key Word(s): Transformation, Becoming, Lightness, Beauty

Soul Song, Meditation, Creation, Rebirth

My Interpretation: There’s a big emphasis on inner reflection and meditation for this coming week. This isn’t really a surprise to me, as we are currently in the middle of a Mercury Retrograde, and this is generally a time when this type of work is beneficial…not only to our own personal & spiritual development, but to surviving the retrograde period relatively unscathed.

While both the Butterfly & the Tree Frog represent a metamorphosis, they approach it from different angles. Here’s what I mean (and the order of the draw comes into play here). Butterfly is emerging from her chrysalis after having undergone a profound change. She approaches it’s newness with an outward expression of joy and lightness; flitting about in the sunshine, and drinking in the beauty of the flowers from which she draws nourishment. Frog does a lot of deep breathing…perhaps looking within to contemplate the many stages of Creation that he has undergone in his life. He connects with the rhythms of Nature through his breath, and begins to chirp his Soul Song in unison – not only with the other frogs, but also with Gaia Herself.

So what does this mean for us? Well, it means that we’ve all been through a lot. We’re not the person we once were, in one way or another….and THAT’S OK! We’re here, we’ve survived and we should flit about and be joyful, and light, and take in the beauty of the Universe. That being said, it’s also time to reflect on our transformations (past, present, and future). Connect with your inner self, and connect that with Nature…BREATHE. Sing your own soul song…whatever it may be, and when Mercury Retro gets in your way, BREATHE. You also may want to do something else the amazing little Tree Frog does…it hangs on tight! (Those little guys have remarkably useful suction cups on their feet that stick to pretty much anything!).

Basically, be thankful that you’ve survived life thus far, and know that if you play your cards right, you’ll continue to thrive…and can continue on your unique journey to being even MORE awesome than you were yesterday.

Some Fiery Insight 9/11/15 - 9/17/15 #ForesightFriday

Divination Method: The Goddess Guidance Oracle

Card(s) Drawn: Pele

Some Fiery Insight #ForesightFriday

Key Word(s): Divine Passion

Basic Message: “Be honest with yourself: What is your heart’s true desire?”

My Interpretation: Pele is the Hawaiian Goddess of fire, lightning, and volcanoes. Her fiery disposition may frighten some, but her realm is that of Passion & Change.  She is known as “She who shapes the sacred land”, and this is evident by the ever-changing landscape of the Hawaiian Islands, which were formed and re-shaped by her abundant lava flows.

So, what does this mean for you? Well, Pele’s vibe is a primal one. She is literally one with the ebbs and flows of nature, and her message is one of burning away the excess…burying the old (as lava does)…and following the flow of your passion to your heart’s desire.

You’re desires have been lying dormant long enough…they have built up, and will no longer stand to be kept bottled up. It is time to connect with your inner most desires and do what is needed to make them a reality. Do not continue to put your needs aside for the sake of others, for the longer you wait, the more violent the eruption will be when your needs can wait no more.

Things to ponder during the coming week: Does your career match your passions? Is there a class you wish to take? Is there a hobby you wish to pursue? Is the rhythm of your life in sync with the inner rhythms of yourself? Where do you want to go? Who do you want to spend time with? What do you want to do? And then there’s this quote from an adorably cheesy Tom Hanks movie, Joe Versus the Volcano:

Some Fiery Insight #ForesightFriday

So, are you awake? Or are you asleep?

Now is the time to figure it out. Figure out what you want, what you need,  and make the necessary changes. Change can be scary…and sometimes it can be quite disruptive….but the end results are often beautiful, especially when they occur to because we have aligned the sacred drum-beat of our souls with that of the primal rhythms of the Universe…those kinds of changes ultimately bring us peace…and constant amazement.

Something in the Air 9/5/15 - 9/11/15 #ForesightFriday

Divination Method: The Secret Language of Animals Oracle Cards

Card(s) Drawn: Air

Animal Oracle: Air #ForesightFriday

Key Word(s): Thought, Alignment, Breath, Intention

My Interpretation: Air surrounds and connects us all…it is the invisible link between you and that special person in your life that lives far away, as well as someone you do not know. We cannot see it, and often forget about it, but we cannot live without it. It can fuel and extinguish Fire, create waves upon the Water that travel and crash upon distant shores,  and carry seeds to where they shall take root and grow in the Earth. So, you see, for something that often goes unnoticed…Air is a pretty big freaking deal.

As Air is the realm of thought, communication, and the mind; we know that our focus for the coming week will also fall within this realm.

You know how when it’s remarkably hot and humid…no breeze at all, and you feel as though Air has become non-existent… Then, suddenly there is a rush of wind – just slightly cooler in temperature – that bursts through the trees, caresses your skin, fills your lungs, and somehow reinvigorates you?? Well, that’s what this is about.

A refreshing breeze is making it’s way through, and is inviting you to mindfully inhale deeply and take in the energy you need to reinvigorate yourself and to align your thoughts with your intentions.

Mindfulness is key here. Thinking is something we do all the time, often without notice…much like breathing. The brain runs all its processes whether we’re conscious of them or not. Breathing happens whether we’re conscious of it or not. Becoming mindful of both your thoughts AND your breathing, however, makes both much more fulfilling, meaningful, and productive. When we are mindful of our thoughts we become aware of the effect they are having on ourselves and others, as well as situations in our lives and the world around us.

Inhale the Breath of the Universe and follow it deep within…take a look at what you find and take note of what you like, what you don’t, and what you would like to change.

Thoughts are things, and we create and bring things to manifest with them every day. Are you manifesting what you need? Or are your thoughts betraying you, bringing about situations that are disruptive to your life? Call upon Air to guide your focus to the thoughts that will help you manifest your goals.

It is time to feed your mind with all that Air has to offer, decide what it is you want to create, and spend some time in the great outdoors. Be open and listen to the wind…breathe in the fresh air, and listen…listen to the messages that are being carried to you…listen and you may find something very special in the air: Clarity.

Clarity is a powerful gift that Air can bestow upon us.

With Clarity of Thought you truly have the power to…wait for it….

MakeItSo

 

You didn’t really think you were getting out of here without being subjected to some pop-culture stuff and/or geekery….did ya?? 😉

Otterrific Opportunity 8/29/15 - 9/4/15 #ForesightFriday

Divination Tool Used: Sacred Circle Tarot

Card Drawn: Knight of Cups

Knight of Cups #SacredCircleTarot #ForesightFriday

Key Word(s): Movement

My take on this card: This coming week is filled with opportunity. It is not, however filled with patience. It is the time to Seize the Day, Jump at the Chance, Lose Yourself in that special moment, Say Yes to the Dress…you get the idea. The thing you need to keep in mind is, should Opportunity come a-knockin’ you need to decide on the spot. Either snag the chance to do whatever, or risk missing out and having yet another moment to make you want to travel back in time and kick yourself in the arse (Hey, we’ve all got those moments, but why add another one to the pile???)

The image on this card includes a Knight standing in a river…he represents that opportunity that comes around…the river suggests that things shall be moving quickly and that things will have a deep spiritual and emotional impact.

This nifty little card also holds the image of an apple tree and….AN OTTER!! 😀 Both of these images are related to knowledge and wisdom. Apples are known as the “fruit of knowledge” and, in Irish Celtic lore, otters are known as guides and guardians of spiritual knowledge & wisdom.

All in all, it would seem that the recurring theme of my Wednesday Wisdom posts has been preparing us for the coming week. With that in mind, I shall leave you with a message that is on a new pair of socks I purchased while on vacation last week…as it should pretty much be everyone’s mantra next week.

Carpe the Fuck out of This Diem #CarpeDiem #SiezeTheDay
