Seven of Cups

Seven of Cups

 

A dark figure stands with an outstretched hand before seven golden cups. Each cup sits nestled in one large cloud in a blue sky. Each cup overflows with a symbolic images: castles, jewels, wreaths, a snake, a bust of a woman, a figure hooded in white and some type dark twisted creature.

Too Many Choices!

This isn’t your average everyday fork in the road. This is a directional choice nightmare.  There are so many choices ahead that the ability to pick one is impossible. However! There is a way to at least narrow down the field.

First things first, throw out anything that’s too good to be true – because those things probably are.

Second, throw out anything that’s just wishful thinking and fancy pipe dreams. If the choice is “someday when I have everything in place….”  I say NAY NAY.

The third thing is to use your lifeline. Yes, call a friend and get some creative brainstorming done to assist in navigation the roads. I can guarantee they can show you some ways around your obstacles that you haven’t thought of yet!

And lastly, remember that this choice nightmare comes when we’ve hit a nice comforting structured plateau. Yes, where we are is nice, we know what to expect and we’re cruising – around in circles while progress passes us by. Meaning? Shake it up. Focus on the steps to take right now to get to that dream of success. Shake off the moss and get moving!

Blessings!

Today’s card is from the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid

The River Queen

The River Queen

 Flow, Letting Go, Natural Movement

A mermaid sits on a rock above the waters. Her greenish skin shines in the night sky. A shell decorates her hair as she pushes back the long strands. Her chest is bound in a torn piece of blue cloth. Stars twinkle in the sky above her. She seems as peace.

The River Queen appears as an Ally in this reading. She is here to help you go with the flow. Literally. Water is one of the most powerful natural force on the planet. With time, the gentle flow of water can cut through or wear down mountains, as long is it goes where it wishes.

An old manager told me once to “be like water.” Don’t get hung up on the details or being perfect. Yes I know I’m preaching to the choir there! LOL! So we let go of all holds us in one place and fear not of drowning. The River Queen will carry us to new places that we could never have imagined!

Blessings!

Queen Of Pentacles

 

Queen of Pentacles

 

A woman sits alone on a throne. Carvings of  goats, fruit bearing trees, winged beings, and other symbols are visible. The tree above her is heavy with fruit and flowers. The ground beneath her is rich and verdant. She gently holds a single golden pentacle.  A rabbit is in the foreground. Cool blue mountains are in the distance against a golden sky.

 It’s good to be the Queen!

The original “Earth Mother” this is a card of nurturing in our homes, families, and tribes. It is also a card of practical energy.  Time to look at the balance between the home, work and spiritual lives – and lovingly adjust if need be.  Sure you can bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan. When was your last pedicure? Yes, you’ve got the business section of the newspaper memorized. What about the stats for your favorite sport?  Sure you’ve knocked fifteen books on improving your business life. Called Mom or your friends lately? Yeah. Didn’t think so.

The thing about the Earth Mother and “moms” in general, is that they and their lives are invested in you. How about you invest in yourself and show that it wasn’t a waste of time? Take care of yourself (yes and your bank account) and get back to not just being successful. Be happy too!

 

Blessings!

Today’s Card is from the African American Tarot by Lo Scarabeo:

4 of Wands

I’m liking where this is going!

The Spirit mentioned on this card is Anotchi – the healing protector of the Ashanti in Ghana. Not only a great magician and medicine man, he’s also a kingmaker!  He conjured a great cloud in the sky and called forth a golden chair. Anotchi commanded the chair to place itself in front of the man who would be the King of the Ashanti tribe (African Mythology, A to Z By Patricia Ann Lynch, Jeremy Robert,  pg 49).  The presence of the golden chair ensured good health, success and prosperity of all the Ashanti – as long as the chair was kept safely in the royal palace and no one allowed to sit upon it.

The African American of note on this card is Robert Smalls. Born a slave, he rose from bondage to become a ship’s pilot, sea captain, and politician. Commandeering a Confederate transport ship, the CSS Planter, he freed himself, his crew and their families in 1862 by sailing it to freedom beyond the Federal blockade.

The suit of wands represents air. In this case, the winds of the sea as we sail out to meet our fate. Those winds could also be the stirred up by the magic within ourselves and the Divine as even higher magic is worked.

In your dealings for the next week, watch for the kingmaker! Should this figure appear in your life, graciously accept the magical gift the offer – and follow their instructions to the letter. You can rise up higher that anyone ever believed with hard work and leading by example.

Blessings!

Today’s Card is from the African American Tarot by Lo Scarabeo:

 8 of Wands

For a first card, this is pretty awesome!

The orisha/spirit mentioned on this card is Eshu.  Some may know him as the infamous Papa Legba. Eshu is not only a messenger for the gods, He looks after travelers as well.  As we are riding out a bumpy retrograde of Mercury, those who are traveling may want to petition Eshu for assistance if needed!

The African American of note on this card is James Beckworth.  Born a slave of Black, Irish and English nobility descent,  his owners set him free after a lengthy battle in courts. Trained as a blacksmith,  James led an adventurous life eventually living with a Crow Band of Native Americans, becoming a business man and a professional card player.  This card shows James as he stands in the mountains of Sierra, Nevada. he is credited with discovering the Beckworth Pass a low-elevation pass and improved it to become the Beckworth Trail.

The suit of wands represents air. In this case, the breeze as we travel from place to place or the winds in the mountains.  This particular card reveals travel, unexpected developments and events as well as travel, speed and messages.

As you travel this week, be careful! Prepare for the unexpected! Your decisions may take you higher than you ever imagined!

Blessings!
