Synchronicity and the Chariot

I started this post as a bit of a ramble regarding synchronicity.  Near the end I realized it was also about what I was being told by that synchronicity.

       ~~~~~

I’ve had the following up on the About page since the beginning of this blog, “Synchronicity is the currency of the magical.

I had a series of interesting experiences occur to me this morning and I realized it was as excellent example of how synchronicity and the magical/mystical works.   Here is a brief play by play of how it all went down.

As a matter of course in my morning, I usually stop to check the news.  Now, these days, I do it very sparingly and usually much later in the morning.  Typically, no more than twice a day.  Just before I do I will go through a small ritual where I ground and, basically, brace myself.  I remind myself to stay focused and to let things unground me.    This time I did the above and then I said quietly to myself, “Lead me to what I should see.”

Daily Draw – September 5th 2012

I had to miss a few days there. Life seems to be coming at me pretty hard and fast. Most of it has to do with the full moon we’re currently coming out and hardcore change occurring.  Hopefully, I can get back in the swing of things as the week levels out a bit.

I’ve also decided to go back to posting up my Wildwood tarot draws for my magical path and switching it out with the Faeries Oracle as Spirit guides.  Even when not posting it here, I still take the time to draw the cards and when drawing the Faeries Oracle card I still drew a Wildwood tarot card because a.) I’m so fond of it and b.) It didn’t feel right to NOT draw a Wildwood tarot card.  So, it’s back to the Wildwood for me.

Another thought I’ve had is to make my Lenormand daily draws a separate post.  Not sure how I feel about it.  It’s an idea born more out of my organizational head than anything else and the extra post would take up a bit more time in the morning.  Let me know what you think about it and I’ll go from there.

As a brief catch-up, yesterday’s cards were Spiritual Path – Hooded Man (The Hermit) // Physical Day – Knight of Pentacles.  Although I did the Moon Phase reading yesterday morning most of my day was spent being very withdrawn energetically and spirtually while being very active with work and physical to-do’s.  It worked and it gave me a sense of renewal when I woke up this morning after several VERY hard days.

Thanks for sticking with me and here is today’s draw.

Spiritual Path – Seven of Vessels, Mourning – Not a very happy looking card but this is about the very important process of respecting and mourning for something that is now moving onward.  This synchs up perfectly with what I have been going through lately.  Change and transition.   It’s time to pay very dear respects to the Past and to those events and people that have had their effect and are now gone.  This is a very important for things to move forward.  As you can see, I drew another card to back up what at first could be a very bummer card.  The Faery Godmother is all about gifts, good news and blessings.  “When you least expect something good, expect it!” is what I hear her say most often.  So, with that all in mind, I will wait for the end of the day to update and see how things play out.

Physical Day – Two of Swords.  Mental decision time.  You can sit there all day weighing one or the other but ultimately, if one wants to move forward then a choice has to be made.  I’ll leave that as it is for now and see what happens during the day.

Update – Today was a really bad day.  Really rough and it’s only after several days am I able to go back and do this update.  The 7 of Vessels makes absolutely perfect sense in that the news we received today turned this day into a crux point, a spot that will allow me to go back, point my finger and say, “It all changed here.”   The news really rocked me at some pretty deep spiritual levels.   The 7 of Vessels reminds me now, looking back, that it REALLY is time to properly mourn not only the past but the future that was not meant to be.    More importantly, it reminded me to give it proper thanks and move on.  What is really odd about this is the Faery Godmother card.  I have to take this to mean that the news and the shake up was actually a good thing, even if I couldn’t really see it.  It was what I needed and it’s actually a blessing.  Still working through that one!

The Two of Swords was about a decision in the physical.  More importantly, it was about the confusion that can happen as you decide on which decision to make.  It’s about the blindness that can come about.  This fit perfectly as well even though I was not willing to accept it until now.

Lenormand Draws for the day

Bear + Birds

Bear + Birds —  Again, I’m still learning the Lenormand… The bear stands for power or a powerful person.  It can mean your personal power.  Birds can mean communication, emails, stress and business.  Powerful news?  Communications from an Older powerful man?  Powerful Stress?  We’ll just see how the day goes along and I will report back when I can.

ONWARD!

Update – I originally took these cards to possibly mean Powerful news or communication with older, powerful men.  Earlier in the day I had a few of these in the way of phone calls.  I consider it a hit.  However, if you’ve read the update above, later in the day we received some very powerful news that really, really shook my wife and I down.  So, there’s a hit there.  Powerful communications, indeed, and not all of them very good.  Makes me start to dislike the Birds card!


Daily Draw – September 1, 2012

Welcome to September!

You’ll notice the draws are a bit different this time around.  I listened to Spirit this morning and decided to switch things up for the time being, possibly for the month of September.  I’m thinking that I will draw from a different combinations of decks every month.

Added bonus!  Starting today I’m also going to be pulling two Lenormand cards to try and get to know them a bit better.  I may be an experienced cartomancer but I know better to think that I can just jump into a long standing, complicated system.  I’ll start with two and see how it goes!   I’ll do an update on how things went there.  The Lenormand draws will be at the end.

For the main draws I am using the ever-wonderful Faeries Oracle deck as my Spiritual/Magical draws and the Llewellyn Tarot will be for my Everyday/Physical world draw.  I have a long and wonderful history with the Faeries Oracle deck and I’m looking forward to showing you how I interact with them on a daily level.  Along the way I have a feeling I’ll be sharing more than a few stories of my interactions with the Fey.

I wasn’t quite sure which deck to use for the Physical.  While sitting quietly on my patio thinking I saw, in my mind’s eye, the image of the red dragon which is on the back of the tarot deck.  I figured that was a pretty clear answer and so I grabbed them and drew a card.  I think, if you’ve been following things, you’ll find it amusing.

The draws

Magical/Spiritual DayEkstasis, 2 

I had to laugh out loud when I saw this card.  One of the first exercises Jessica (the writer of the book for the deck) has you do with these cards is to pull out the one card that you find is your favorite.  This is the one I chose so many years ago.  It’s still my favorite!  Ekstasis is part of what the deck calls the Singers and, if you need to think of it this way, they are “kind of” like a Major Arcana for the deck.  But not really…

Ekstasis is all about hearing the song of creation, of the Universe and feeling connected to it.  About hearing not only your song but how it weaves into, around and through the other songs all around you to create something larger, something universal.  For me, it’s a REALLY good card to get and reminds me of so so much.  We’ll see how the day goes.

It also looks like a big glowing fey emissary is coming to give you a hug.

But that’s just me…

Physical/Everyday – The Star, 7

Laughed at this one too because if you’ve been following along, the Pole Star was on the Magical side of things yesterday.  With the full moon in, uh, full swing it’s interesting to think that perhaps that wonderful feeling of guidance and connection has shifted from the material and into the physical.   With a card like this leading the day it’s hard to think the day will be that challening.

ONWARD!

Update – Welllll, this turned out to be a very odd day and not one which would have been indicated in the cards above.  This is odd for me because, honestly, there is usually a fairly strong thread I can follow through the day that links up to these cards.  Not today.  My physical day was a good one and work was intense and a bit stressful but I was able to practice more on using it as a meditation.  Magcially, today seemed to be a bit of a null spot.  Not much was going on (at least that I could sense or feel) and the day seemed to pod along.  The evening became even stranger when I popped a fairly bad headache.  See below for more on that one.

Lenormand Two Card Draw

The focus of the pull will be for information for my coming day.  The cards I will be using for this will be my awesome and silly homemade Lenormand cards.  I’m not sure what I’m calling them yet but the first post on them was a few days ago.  For each draw, I’ll shuffle, cut the deck and then pull the top two cards off the deck.  I’ll do my best to analyze them, do some prediction and then I’ll add commentary at the end of the day.

Birds + Tree

Initial thoughts – Birds can stand for communication, group communication, chattering, busy busy, a flurry of wings and activity.  Tree typically indicates health, illness.  Can also indicate nature and deep roots.  I think, in starting this series of daily draws, that for this one I’m just going to leave it here and see what happens instead of trying to predict anything just yet.

Small update – I am wondering if I will hear some news today about a health issue in my family or even chosen family (close friends).  Will update more later.

Main update – I did NOT receive a call about a health issue in the family.  Instead, I popped a headache later in the day that sent me to bed early.  The remnants of hurricane Isaac finally started drifting our way yesterday and I believe the low pressure system messed with me a bit.  Either that or some allergies are firing up again.  Either way, I think the combination above could very easily be linked to a headache.  I also spent some time thinking about it  and I see how the cards above could be linked to stress or depression or even both.  

Will need to remember that!


Daily Draw – August 24, 2012

Even after the experience last night or, perhaps, because of the experience last night it would appear the tests are not quite over for me.

Magical Path – King of Bows, Adder.  This is my personal significator for me these days, the King of Wands.  It’s a marker for me and a reminder that I have everything I need to deal with the day on a magical level.  It’s a way of the deck saying, “It’s up to you now.”  I also like to remember how prominently Snake figured into my early levels of learning dowsing a few years ago whenever I see this card.  So, yeah,  Go forward.  Make. Do. Be.

The Daily Life in the Physical – Goblins, 5  Heads up and test time.  Remember, fears and goblins (and for all you Faeries Oracle fans out there, G. Hobyahs) are opportunities for growth.  Are you going to react or are you going to respond to their presence and what they are doing in your life?

Overall the two cards are telling me that today is full of tests and goblins BUT these are crucial tests because I hit a major achievement last night.  How else can I be sure of what happened last night if I don’t put it to the test?  THAT is what I feel these cards are telling me today.

Onward!

Update – Today was definitely full of tests.  Now, I’m aware of the “looking too much for it” phenomena which can happen when you do daily draws.  I made sure to mentally scan things as they occurred to make sure I wasn’t reading into things.  With that in mind let me just say that today was FULL of gremlins and goblins!  I’m pretty sure I dealt with all of them in a responsive way instead of a reactive way and at the end of it all I can chalk up today up as a pretty good day.  Lots of lessons learned and, more importantly, integrated.


Earth Energy Reading for Spring Equinox

So as not to neglect this blog I thought it would be good of me to post the most recent video I did on the earth energy reading.  I do these readings weekly and their focus is what we, as earth workers, gridworkers, etc need to know about the coming week’s energy and interactions.

Hope you find it enjoyable and that the Spring Equinox is treating you well!


Happy Solstice!

I hope everyone is having a great Summer Solstice.  I’ve always found it interesting that all the energy of celebration of the solstices is really focused on the Winter Solstice because of Yule/Christmas/Other variants.  It all seems a bit lopsided.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had a nice, global two or three day explosion of summery energy similar to what happens during the Winter?  Ok, so we ALREADY have that but wouldn’t it be nice if it were more recognized?

Here’s the weekly Earth Energy reading.  After I did this vid reading I noticed that the energy attributed with Penelope Dreamweaver is exactly what you would expect for Summer Solstice, IE: the energy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, visions, inspiration, and dreams.  I would have expected Penelope in the middle position and it makes me think that Solstice is actually a few days off in the view of the Elementals.  The other side of this is that it’s not so much off as just the swell of energy of Solstice will not really hit us until a few days are past.

Regardless, I hope yours is fantastic.  Get outside and connect if you can today.  They’re waiting on you.


Back and Running

I’ve been a bit lax in keeping things updated here.  My apologies.  Life has been a little like the proverbial “one armed paper hanger” around here!  I just wanted to send a quick update saying that yes, there are more posts coming and yes, I’m still around!  Also, I’ll be better about posting a link here to my youtube videos as they go up.  See below for the latest Earth Energy reading for the week!

I’ve been doing readings lately at a local shop on Saturdays.  Hello and welcome to anyone that has wandered to this blog from my business card.  Doing public readings have been incredibly refreshing for me.  They’ve helped me not only dust off the oracle skills but they’ve also helped knock down my own blocks of personal resistence I put up a long time ago.  Thank you to everyone that has taken part in those readings.  I hope they helped you as much as the chance to read for you has helped me!

All for now.  Have a great week and make sure to get out and get connected to Mother Earth.  It’s as good for her as it is for you!
