Full Moon Announcement – Free Readings

The Full Moon crazy has hit me.

Since deciding this week to do readings for other people I decided to go one step further with the Full Moon.  For the Full Moon weekend I will be offering free 3 card readings for folks who contact me here, through gmail or any of the other social media feeds I have.  I made a short video this morning that goes over the details.   I’m offering this until late Sunday night and even if it takes all week, I’ll get to everyone I can.

More later but I wanted to get this up here as soon as I could and before the day grew any later.

Cheers!


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.”

So I checked Google news, looked at the rundown, and nothing stood out.  Fair enough.  I then went to the BBC to see their highlights.  I scrolled down and then, bam, I saw it.  “New Dead Sea Scrolls Cave Discovered.”   Ohhh, that looked promising! I read the article.  It was an interesting but, to sum it up, “we found another cave, there were scrolls here but, well, it looks like someone stole them in the 1950’s.”  Right.

Regardless, it got me curious about the Dead Sea Scrolls again and so I felt the urge to look them up online.  I found them over at Gnosis.org.   The first entry caught my attention.  “The Divine Throne Chariot.”  This, in turn, immediately had me thinking of the upcoming Chariot card from my Imbolc reading!  I began to read the introduction…

“The Divine Throne-Chariot draws its inspiration from Ezekiel (1:10) and is related to the Book of Revelation (4). It depicts the appearance and movement of the Merkabah, the divine Chariot supported and drawn by the cherubim, which is at the same time a throne and a vehicle.”

If you wish, follow the link and read the scroll in it’s entirety.  It’s short but powerful.

My next step was to research the Merkabah and found an interesting read from Crystallinks.  It started with this…

“Merkabah, also spelled Merkaba, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. “Mer” means Light. “Ka” means Spirit. “Ba” means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.

I then spent the next hour or so reading that page and looking over the “Teaching of Spherical Breathing: Using 18 Breaths” which is at the bottom of the page. After that I decided to put a spin on things and began to google “Using a Merkaba.”

At this point, though, I caught myself before falling further down the research rabbit hole and took it back to basics.  What was I supposed to see or hear?  Easy.   I’m being reminded to focus on the upcoming energy of the Chariot from the Imbolc reading but to also bring this new information into it.  When I did the reading I was focused on the aspects of the two different colored horses being used in unison to move the chariot itself.  That called to me then and still resonates now.  I discovered a few days ago that Venus was in Aries and is soon to go retrograde.  Again, I thought of the Chariot card and it’s female driver in the Druidcraft deck.  Feminine energy charging forward perhaps?

However, it seems to be much more potent than any of it.  It seems like a marker for a spiritual and energetic surge that we’ve not seen in a long time.  And, more importantly, it comes from the energy of the Rebirth card.  A potent wave, indeed.  Though not exactly timed up with the Full moon tomorrow the Chariot is certainly close.    It feels as if this is something that will happen in response to the Full Moon, the penumbral eclipse and a “minor grand sextile” all occurring tomorrow night.

So, this is the question we have to ask ourselves.  “Are we ready to step into the Chariot?” Are we ready to connect and merge with the energy of the Merkaba, the “wheels within wheels?”

The horses are being drawn up.  The wheels are being aligned.  The Piper’s call has sounded.

Are you ready to get in?

A Bit of Juggling

I’ve not written a real blog post in a while.

I realize this and I know I’ve been spending a good deal of the beginning of the year working with my Youtube channel.  I’ve felt drawn to put a lot of energy towards the video channel and have been doing so.  As we start to come out of Winter,  I’m hoping to change that up a bit more, offering content there as well as here and trying not to mix the two as badly.  (For instance, I doubt I’ll continue to cross-post the vlog video rambles.  It doesn’t feel “right” to flood the blog with them.  Feel free to throw in your thoughts in the comments.)    What I do cross-post will mainly be focused on any dowsing, oracle or mystical work.  There are also several instructional vids I have planned in the near future but I doubt I do more than just mention them here.  If you’d like, feel free to subscribe to the channel.  I would certainly appreciate it and it helps the channel quite a bit when you do.

However, I did realize I’ve neglected the blog quite a bit and for that, I apologize!   Ultimately, I’m a bit better at expressing myself through the written word versus the spoken word.  Yet, there are things I can communicate visually there that don’t translate well with the written word.  Of course, this works in reverse as well.  The main complication to do both has been, you guessed it, time.

A quick thank you for those of you still here and a promise that there is a lot more to come.

Spring is coming!


Energy reading for Imbolc to Spring Equinox

Once again, I can’t seem to keep my social media feeds straight!  Back at Imbolc, I did my usual three card reading for the energies we needed to be aware of as we move from one seasonal marker to the other.  This time, I did the reading for my Youtube Channel.  Yes, I’ve been spending a bit more time there, more on that in a bit.

Below is the full reading done with dowsing rods.  This reading picks up where the Winter Solstice to Imbolc reading left off, which is coming out of the murky, misty and confusing feel of the Moon card.  However, the energy ramping towards the Full Moon is extremely positive.  Give it a look and listen and let me know your thoughts!

More soon!


The Queen of Crows

(This is a very personal post which I did not want to initially publish.  I believe that part of my work with the Morrigan is to show my process with her, to help others to see or understand.  She has told me this isn’t for me.  It’s helpful and is necessary.  To be honest, I cannot guarantee I will keep this post up for very long.  We will see how this goes.)

On Sunday, I took a walk out into a chilly morning right after dawn to have a little sit down chat with the Morrigan.  You know, like you do…  I felt called to shoot a little video before hand which I did.  It’s over on my youtube channel if you want to see it.  I think now it was just a way for me to calm my nerves and to have some record in case I disappeared, swooped up in a dark cloud of crow wings and fury.  (Just kidding…I think.)

Shortly after filming I sat there and talked to her.  Well, I talked, she mainly listened.  Sitting on a log, nestled by some sheltering cedar from the cold breeze.  I was alone in meditation.  My eyes were closed, focused on my inner vision.

Unlike other spirits or visions, contact with her is crystal clear.  There are no “halfway” ideas of what I saw or didn’t see.  I don’t have to stretch for anything.  It’s typically in high-def.   Unlike the unclothed and long-maned Dark Lady from the Faeries Oracle, she was dressed in bulky, weathered, black leather armor, crow feathers and dark fur at her shoulders.  Her hair was black and unruly, cropped short falling just above her eyebrows and just below her ears. It looked like it had been cut with a knife.  On her back draped a long cloak that shimmered between dark blue, black and crow/raven feathers.

Circling the Dark Flame

What a roller-coaster week.  Fallout from the election, the Taurus Supermoon and then the event from my previous post about the dark blue fire.   All this year I’ve drawn cards on the energies of this year and over and over I have received the Six of Arrows – Transition or The Journey (Death).  Over and over two words have sprung up, transition and transformation.  It almost feels like a season finale doesn’t it?  On top of that it appears to be a cliffhanger!  (If you go by Samhain being the end of the year it was DEFINITELY a cliffhanger, right?  Tune in next cycle for the stunning conclusion!)

In regards to the image of the dark blue fire, it’s become very central to me, one of the foremost things on my mind. Since I first had the image, it has stuck with me and has been a perpetual image on my inner space.  As I’ve processed and looked into things it has simply been there, waiting.  The rest of this post goes into it, goes into the larger tarot and card reading I did regarding it, the signs and experiences I’m having and then what I’ve decided about it.

My goal, by openly talking about it here, is education so less experienced readers might get a look, via a walk through of the past few days, of how to analyze and work through similar experiences.

Dark Blue Fire

It was shortly after reading a post entitled “Be The Dark” by Druid John Beckett over on Pantheon that I was hit with the visualization. During a break at work I took a moment, closed my eyes and focused on why I felt his blog post had hit me so hard, why had it resonated so strongly with me?  I knew I had been holding back fears, processing angers and doubts.  I also was aware of the information passed on to me from the tarot readings on the recent super moon.   Maintain your center.  Be aware of emotions at full tide.  Balance.

I highly recommend you give it a look.  It’s focus is on what to do if you’re just not feeling connected to the Light?  What if you are still angry, upset and just plain mad?  In the post he talks about how, if you can’t be the Light, you should be the Dark.

Now,  I’m not known for my dark side wanderings.  I shy away from my anger and try to process it.  I typically stick pretty close to the Light and to my connection with nature in the daytime.  Flowers instead of thorns.  However, as I’ve grown older I’ve had an increased urge toward the thorns. As I stopped to think about the Dark, I was reminded of my first encounter with a dark nature spirit which occurred over twenty years ago.  It taught me that all was not as it seemed.

I would consider it a “dark Fey.”  Many, many years ago, I was fortunate enough to live in the country and to have a garage.  I had set up an altar in the garage and I used it as a ritual space for oracle work or meditation.  Two to three times a week, oftentimes more, I would sage and purify the space.  It was a good place.  We would have nearby nature spirits come by for a visit and some took up residence.  Many people commented on how “safe” they felt in that sanctuary.   We would have dinner in there with friends on the nights the Wheel turned.  One night, unable to sleep, I wandered in there to settle myself down for some quiet meditation/visualization at around 2 AM.  Just as I flipped on the light I felt this “whoosh” and had the sense of a dark, flowing spiky thing dashing underneath the cover of the altar table.  I also felt/sensed some of my Fey friends yell,  “turn the light off!”

I did so quickly but immediately went on the defensive.  Though I wanted to immediately go on the defensive, grabbing my sage and calling up shields, I did not.  I didn’t feel it was necessary.  I KNEW the wards on the space were solid and in place.  Whatever it was that was there, it had made it through the wards which meant, by default, it was okay.

I talked to it.  I coaxed it out of from underneath the table.  I asked if it was ok to light a small candle and was told it was.   The spirit felt dark as night and, as I said, spiky, like an odd mix of a goblin, spider and a scorpion.  It was also scared.  I did a quick card reading in hopes of learning more and I pulled the 5 of Pentacles.  Poverty.  Exhaustion.  It was just looking for a place to “warm up.”

With caution, I allowed it to stay the night and to return as needed.  I began to leave it offerings on the spirit plate I kept at that time.  I agreed that the lights in the garage would never come on after midnight or before 7 AM or dawn, whichever came first.  It did return and was always respectful and quite gracious.  It brought a few friends and the energy up there in the middle of the night was incredibly intense.  It was not for the faint of heart.   Over time, I found a friend with that dark spirit.

Now, do not misunderstand me, there is a distinct difference between Dark and Malicious.  Something may be Dark but not malicious or, as much as I hate to use the word, “evil.”  Another way I’ve been told to look at it is to say that some things do not appreciate the light of day time.  Though it may make them fuel for our fears it does not make them evil monsters.  My encounter that night  many years ago and the ones that followed changed the way I look at “shadow” things.  The spirit I met that night was no more evil than a black fox, a panther or a creepy looking spider.  Just because it was “of the dark” did not make it malicious or vengeful or any other stereotypical attributes some might jump towards.  I was reminded of the Batman or The Shadow from my youthful comic book days.  I learned that not all things dark and spiky were negative or evil.

It was my first interaction with “The Dark.”  Over the years, I would have many, many more.

So, today, after reading the post I  mention above  I sat back, centered and, focused on my feelings regarding “being the dark.”  It felt fine.  It felt comfortable.   How odd!  It’s been some time since I had thought about that other side.  I could not ignore the resonance I was feeling.  I’ve known for some time that in order to grow and evolve I would need to look into the darker side of myself.  Was this what it was about?  Is this what the recent events, both at Samhain and the weeks following, were preparing me for?

As I sat and meditated on these questions an image sprang directly in front of my eyes with great power.  It was nothing that I had ever seen before; a single, large dark blue flame with light blue defining it’s flickering, burning edges.  It simply sat in front of me.  I saw nothing else but I felt much more.  I felt strength and, surprisingly, comfort and peace.  Though I felt a presence I heard or sensed no other communication except the sensations I was receiving.  It just hovered there, waiting, until I came out of trance and needed to get back to work.

So, now, I need to look into this further.  What was that Blue Flame all about?  What does it mean?  What about the Dark?  This evening and tomorrow I will be delving into it further as I have time to do so.  If anyone reading this has information on the aspects concerning a dark blue ball of flame with light blue fringes, please feel free to let me know in the comments.
