XIX The Yellow Brick Road

ic_yellow_roadWhen this card appears in your reading, a burst of spiritual sunshine can enlighten your mind and warm your heart. Fill the dark caverns of your psyche with the white light of divine wisdom. Create a rainbow bridge of compassion and understanding over which you can travel to meet with your fellow pilgrims on the path of life.

Rise before dawn, walk to a nearby nature sanctuary, and re-experience the wonder of the day’s rebirth. Visit the ocean and absorb the splendor of the rising or setting Sun with its orange-reddish glow in the western sky.

Light a candle, meditate in an aura of peace, and send your healing thoughts and prayers it to humanity on a multicolored beam.

Realize that you, no matter what your flaws and challenges may be, are a light to the world.

Inner Child Five of Hearts

Inner Child Five of Hearts

Five of Hearts

Often, during our darkest hours, there is a need for reflection and rest,

represented in this card by the sea turtles, the calm ocean, and the crescent Moon. 

Then, suddenly, something magical can happen.

The mermaid of the Four of Hearts who experiences sorrow and hopeless feelings opens a treasure chest in the Five of Hearts,

and is offered a special Winged Heart.

She gazes at a golden pentacle at the center of this heart, a symbolic star of initiation reflecting her cosmic guiding star in the heavens.

 

The pentacle is the most widely revered of all esoteric symbols. Traditionally, its meaning refers to the perfection of humanity.

The pentacle can act as a spiritual protector and is connected to the mystical significance of the number 5. 

The main quality inherent in this number is that of change. 

In this card, the mermaid is experiencing a change of heart: she is healing the wounds of the past.

 

When change occurs in your life, especially at an emotional level, you may feel confused and vulnerable.

The changes now happening in your life are guided and protected by the seal of the golden star residing at the center of your heart.

This star is your Higher Self.

Rest assured that creativity will follow this interlude of chaos.

Don’t let the blues get you down.

Anticipate a renewal of both interpersonal and divine love.

8. Strength Tarot

8. Strength

Soul Message: Mountain Pride with noble beauty, teach me to honor my responsibility, to walk my talk and with love impart, to follow my journey, a Path with Heart. –Isha Lerner (from The Power of Flowers)

Alchemy and Transformation: At this stage of initiation, it is imperative that the individual apply the wisdom of the previous card, “The Journey Home,” to everyday tasks. The step into “Strength” is a true test of character for the individual. How will you use your power? How will you use your will? As you step into the world of conscious living, you must move beyond the limitations of the past and begin to engage with the skills and attributes of self-mastery.

Awakening to the Archetype – The Earth Mother: With the Strength card, you are invited into the shrine of the Earth Mother, where the strength and integrity of the Divine Feminine is stored, vitalized, and regenerated. Strength is born from the heart. Her mission is to refine the nature of humanity, magically opening to the possibility of right relationship with the world.

Everyday Encounters: There are many ways to strengthen your attunement to the earth, as well as to your life path or destiny. Take walks in the mountains. Meet the wild woods and let the wind caress your skin. Get down on your hands and knees and behold the virgin budding of the first spring flowers. Lay on your back on the bare earth and watch the Moon rise and set. Let Earth nourish you.

XV The Big Bad Wolf

ic_bad_wolf 265x429

XV The Big Bad Wolf ~ Isha Lerner

When this card appears in your reading, embrace the fears, doubts, and unintegrated aspects of your psyche with open arms. Let your light shine into the darker regions of your mind. Accept yourself as a blending of higher and lower selves, a union of spiritual and material bodies. Call up your anger, jealousies, and antipathies, and transfigure them into joy, compassion, and understanding.

Where there is separation, sow harmony and togetherness. Where there is pain from mental anguish, offer heartfelt sensitivity and simple acts of kindness to friends and relatives. Reverse the pattern of lying to yourself and others. Learn to speak and live out the truth of your existence to the best our ability. ~ Isha Lerner

The Big Bad Wolf appears as today’s card. It is preparing us for the full moon on 2-22!   We are walking on our path, and then suddenly, out of the corner of our eye, the big bad wolf appears and attempts to frighten us. What hidden forces are stealing your joy? Are you avoiding seeing a truth about what is restricting you of your freedom? Are there hidden forces of negativity restraining you from achieving your full potential? The full moon will shine a light on these aspects of internal bondage.

What can be done to put “the devil” in his own place, and  so you can face your fears and carry on towards your goal?

In your heart, find a true vision of who you are, and cling to the power you have within to free yourself from any entanglement that holds you back.

 

Enjoy Life!

Weekly Oracle Reading for Feb. 15 to 21, 2016

Vintage Wisdom Expression

Monday and Tuesday: Expression

This Isis like figure with the veil covering half her face, makes us wonder what she is hiding. But truly the light is behind her all the way. Just like the Light is behind us and supporting us. The butterflies coming from her head dress show that her thoughts are being set free. They are of so many colours. So, as you move forward in these days, do find a way to express what is hidden inside your beautiful soul. Your colourful thoughts are cherished gems! If you keep them to yourself, then they cannot help another soul. We often feel we have nothing to share, and there are so many doing it better than we could do. Nonsense!! You have so much to share. Allow your emotions today to spread their wings and take flight. Let your creativity reveal to you what you can do, to express yourself to another individual today. Write it in a book, a blog or in a song. Someday, a special someone who comes across your path will find an answer to a life question that they have had for perhaps a long time. YOU count. Your voice matters. Send Love to what you do. Love will bind it together with grace and courage and make it powerful. Trust your thoughts, and set them free.

 

Vintage Wisdom Oracle  Beauty2

Wednesday and Thursday: Beauty

Another headdress!! What kind of reading focuses on headdresses?? We have changed from butterflies to flowers. Beauty! The Essence of just what IS. There is nothing now to “do”. We expressed ourselves in the first few days of the week, now we are to just BE. Be your beautiful self that you are. Inside and Out. Inside, you connect with your feelings of passion, and have a knowingness of connecting with your Higher Self, which enables your radiance to flow within all the cells of your body. Let the wave of Love, Peace and Joy flow through you from the top of your body to your feet. Feel this wave, random at first, then sequential after that. This beauty flowing through you will enable your cells to function in their Divine Perfect order. Then, let this beauty flow from Inside to your Outside. Now, the radiance will flow out, and other people will be dynamically attracted to you. This is what they desire, so they come to you to feel it. After you have charged your inner essence, it is now safe for you to shine your Light and radiance. It is a wonder to feel inner beauty and to share it with the world around you.

Vintage Wisdom Oracle Listening

Friday, Saturday and Sunday: Listening

This lovely lady of the garden has become one with the garden. The birds approach her with a message, a tune and a sweet song. She is quiet. She listens. Her hands clasped resting on her knees as she ponders the message. The birds continue to fly near her and give her hope and joy. Would you not feel amazed if the birds came to you, obviously a few of them around you giving you a message? What would they say to you? What message do you need to hear? Take time to listen. The message will ring true and it will be clear in your heart. Contemplate it. At this point, connect with nature and do nothing. The time is now to listen, and to ponder.   The maiden’s wings are closed, and resting. Take this week end to rest. Enjoy the messages that are coming to you. No need to rush about. Sit; be still and Listen.

 

Overall this will be a week to connect with your Inner Essence. Giving special attention to expressing your creativity will benefit others, but you will discover that it will beautify you. You will feel more abundant inside and will have even more to give.   Setting your wisdom free to fly out like the butterflies, will enable your inner beauty to become the bouquet of perfume to sweeten your daily walk. This fragrance will attract the messages to you, so be ready to listen from a place of peace within, and you will retain the message for when the time of action will come.

 

Blessings upon your week!

🙂

The crystals here are Mookaite, and Fire Agate, and some kind of Jasper, I think.

Mookaite gives us strength, and balance; Fire agate will bring a sense of vitality; and the colours of the Jasper represent bringing things together, like messages from Spirit.

Card For Today

I just drew this card from the deck this morning! 🙂 We are to listen to our inner voice and follow direction to share wisdom with others. And also keep our heart open to receive messages from Spirit.

Spirit Card Readings

Six of Ariel

Our card for today, Tuesday, April 29th, is taken from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards – Six of Ariel – “Material needs get fulfilled in magical and unexpected ways. Acts of kindness. Giving or receiving with a grateful heart.”

The number 6 represents: “Don’t worry or obsess about material items, including money. Worry lowers the effectiveness of your prayers. Fortunately, the angels can answer your prayers if you ask them to.” (Angel Numbers 101)

The Suit of Ariel represents the material world. These cards deal with the daily part of living, including physical health, pursuing education and careers, and the planet on which we reside. Archangel Ariel has magical powers of manifestation, and a love of the world’s animals and the environment. (Archangel Power Tarot Cards guidebook)

This card is asking us to not be concerned about our material needs because once we focus our intention on abundance, the Universe…

Four of Cups: Boredom in a Loincloth?

four of cups The cosmic tarot

 

The Four of Cups shows a pasty young man who looks rather blase about everything. But he’s wearing a loincloth and he has a frickin’ horse! How on Earth can this little shit be bored?!

Anyway, you’re feeling rather dull today.

And just under the surface is this curious buzzing, this feeling of discontent that is gaining momentum and threatening to break free.

Boredom….the most dangerous thing in the world? It just might be.

The other day I was out for a walk and I came upon a little girl who was writing things in the street with chalk. In huge, bubbly letters was the word “POO” – scrawled right across the entire road.

“Did you write this?” I asked her.

She shrugged, smirked and said “I was bored.”

So let that be a lesson. We do odd things when we’re bored.

Whether it’s writing “POO” on the street, reading US Weekly magazine or organizing your cookbook collection, we all resort to horrific things when boredom strikes.

So this weekend, don’t just sit there. Tap into your boredom – because it’s masking something…something magnificent!
