Sacred Circle Tarot

20151120_112115-001

Divination Method: The Sacred Circle Tarot

Card(s) Drawn: The Tower (Reversed), The Shaman

Your #ForesightFriday Forecast 11/21/15 - 11/27/15 #Divination #Pagan #Tarot

Key Word(s): (Tower Reversed) Continued Upheaval, Obstacles, Fear, Disruption, Dust Settling after Conflict; (The Shaman) Introspection, Solitude, Discretion

My Interpretation: Remember all that Fluctuation from last week? I’m sure you do, as the world as a whole went ’round the bend so to speak…and, at least on my own personal front, things have been a bit topsy-turvy as well (Not really bad, but it made for an interesting week). The appearance of the dreaded Tower means things will continue to be challenging in the week ahead. The only consolation I have at the moment, is that the Tower is reversed, which suggests any upheaval won’t be as sharp and drastic as it has been…but it will be just one more thing added to your pile. I feel that on a global scale this card is commenting more on the surge of irrational fear that has swelled in the hearts – and out of the mouths – of many in reaction to last week’s wide spread tragedies. On a personal level, it could be alluding to this…but is more likely pointing out that bit that keeps creeping into your head regarding a possible outcome to a worrisome situation. The Tower Reversed also suggests things are beginning to settle down, at least for the interim. So you should at least be able to catch your breath.

Luckily, two cards were pulled today, and the second one gives us an idea of how to proceed. The Shaman reminds us that we have other senses, and that sometimes relying on our eyes and ears alone doesn’t give us an accurate assessment of a situation. It’s time to take a step back, to observe, to go within, and to open your mind to the possibility that things are not always as they seem. Granted, spending your time all secluded like, and having an entire week of “soul searching me time” isn’t exactly what we can all do right now. Y’know with the whole family having, and the job doing, so we can do the bill paying and the eating (especially with the U.S. Turkey Day towards the tail end of this challenging week) that we all must take care of. The Shaman is more telling us to have a bit of discretion in our dealings and encounters this week. Take things in, rather than react. Chew on a notion for a bit before deciding what you think of it…or the person that conveyed it. Is there perhaps a reason they feel the way they do? Is it a reason that can at least help you to see how they could come to that conclusion? Basically, do not react rashly…especially since many of us will be in close proximity to large groups of family and friends in the coming week. Be sure to take time to decompress, and process. You just might learn something about yourself, others, society, or even your spirituality. What you learn may even help you through whatever it is The Tower has in store.

Be introspective in order to gain perspective.

 

Roll with the Changes #ForesightFriday #Divination #Pagan

Divination Method: The Sacred Circle Tarot

Card(s) Drawn: 2 of Discs

Roll with the Changes #ForesightFriday #Divination #Pagan

Key Word(s): Fluctuation

My Interpretation: This coming week requires us to be flexible. Change is in the air, and while it can be difficult to deal with, DO NOT DESPAIR! The 2 of discs is about maintaining balance, which means that although there may be losses…there will also be gains. We can still achieve our goals, we just have to put in the necessary work and stay on our toes. We must be able to adapt to the situation at hand. Basically, pretend you’re Jareth maintaining control of his crystal ball on his constantly fluctuating hand. 😉

Spiritually, the 2 of Disks reminds us to become…or remain in tune with the ebbs and flows of energies, and the cycles of life. Those who adapt thrive, those who do not, perish.

So, to quote R.E.O. Speedwagon: If you’re tired of the same old story, turn some pages. I’ll be here when you are ready to roll with the changes.”

 

Earth & Fire Are in the Air #ForesightFriday #Divination #Pagan #Tarot

Happy Friday, everyone! This week I have actually used a spread to forecast our week ahead. It’s not a huge one, but It felt right, so we’re gonna take a little look see and discover what we’ve got in store for us.

Divination Method: The Sacred Circle Tarot

Card(s) Drawn: 3 of Wands, Ace of Discs, Queen of Wands

Earth & Fire are in the Air #ForesightFriday #Divination #Tarot

Key Word(s): Foundation (3 of Wands), Abundance (Ace of Discs), Illumination (Queen of Wands)

My Interpretation: First let me explain the simple set up of this spread. Card 1 represents the Situation, Card 2 represents a Challenge, and Card 3 represents Advice to heed or Action to take regarding the 1st two cards.  Now, let’s get to it!

The Situation is found in the 3 of Wands. Things are basically good. The Fires of creation have been kind, and things have panned out as of late.  Because of this, there is a sound foundation to build upon for the future. Be sure to note, however, that even the strongest foundations require maintenance – so the hard work is not over. Be aware of things and and don’t be surprised if you’ve got to change things up a bit. The foundations that are best able to survive a shake-up are those that have the ability to be a bit flexible.

The Challenge is the Ace of Discs. It may sound odd that the Abundance card is seen as a challenge, but “Too much of a good thing” really is a thing. 😉 This card suggests that the energy for the coming week, much like Earth is ripe for nurturing creation and bearing the fruit of it. Whether that be the creation of financial opportunities, manifestations of artistic urges, the start of a passionate relationship, etc…. All of these things are awesome things. They are so awesome, in fact, that it can be easy to let ourselves get carried away in their super strong currents and lose sight of what is truly important. We must remain grounded in that foundation and not allow ourselves to be swept away and distracted by all “the shinies”.

Advice is found in the form of the Queen of Wands. To me, she embodies the qualities of the Goddess Brighid. She is Queen of the Hearth…Igniter of Passions…Source of Creativity…Protector of Loved Ones. She appears in this spread to remind us that while all of those things mentioned in the Challenge above are important (which is evident due to the fact that she represents them), it is also important to keep the Fires of the Spirit burning. She is here to lead by example. She shows us that it is possible to “have it all” if we maintain a balance by remaining anchored in our Spirit & Faith. Be true to yourself…and if things get out of hand, take a time out, go within and: Be Good to Yourself. (Yes…it’s time to cue Journey.)

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

The #ForesightFriday Vibe for 8.15.15 - 8.21.15

Friday is upon us once more, and that means it’s time for me to see what lies ahead for us in the coming week. For me, this week has been a struggle…lots of minor frustrations, and a lack of “get up and go”. I was frequently taking moments, breathing in the fresh air to re-invigorate myself with the week’s Coffee energy. Truth be told, there was also MUCH imbibing of caffeinated beverages to keep this Pixie’s behind moving.

So, what is it we have to look forward to next week? Let’s find out.

Divination Tool Used: Sacred Circle Tarot

Card Drawn: 8 of Discs, Reversed

acred Circle Tarot: 8 of Discs, Reversed #ForesightFriday

Key Word(s): Focus, Perspective

My take on this card: The imagery of this card is 8 discs, 7 of which have been intricately carved. It indicates that there is a project underway…a project that has been taking a great deal of your attention.

The fact that this card was drawn in the reverse indicates that you may be focused a little too much on the details of what you are doing. It’s time to take a step back and take a look at the “Big Picture”. Think of it this way, if the devil (aka: the problem) is in the details, then perhaps enlightenment (aka: the solution) can be found with a change of perspective.

Look at the situation from a different angle. Are you using the right approach? Are you trying to control the situation a little too much? Are you using the proper tools? It might be time to break out of your comfort zone, use an unorthodox method, or just go with the flow and see where things go…rather than trying to force things to go your way.

The 8 of discs reversed also indicates that you may wish to use caution with your finances and try to curb your spending. Income is likely to be coming in in small increments, and saving what you can is  the prudent move at this time.  I’m not saying you can’t have any fun…just try not to blow all your cash all in one place.

So, get on out there and gain a little perspective! Hopefully, you’ll find that – much like the view of the Earth from space – things look a hell of a lot better…*cue Bette Midler*…from a distance. 😉
