Talking Stick

A chance for you voice to be heard.

When I drew this card I heard "Fake News" I guess because we hear so much of what it is not true.  Back to what Dad said, don't believe everything you hear. Childhood truisms.  Disturbing that such a sacred item like a Talking Stick has been abandoned. 
Today I will really listen when someone has something to say.  Changing things always begins with oneself,

Tribal Spirit Dancer

On the wing.

These birds have all gathered to listen to my drumming.  One of my wings is not working, maybe I should head South to the healing waters of the Ocean. 
How lovely it would be to wake up from your perch and say today I think I will do this and just do it.  To flow with a different rhythm and dance across the sky.  Still, I guess birds have their responsibilities. I realize I am rambling so I am singing off....

Thunder Drum

Stand up and be counted

I am not a drummer.  I can listen to some drumming for awhile and then I become restless with it.  Denise Linn suggests that we thump our chest in a two-time beat, similar to our heart beat to activate our own grounding and to gather strength.  I went over to UTube and listened to several samples of drumming and nothing enchanted me.  My energy is out of whack and my body has gone crooked, similar to my tornado trauma.  So this evening after work I will search a few more UTube videos and see if I can find one that connects and maybe that drumming will help me stabilize my energy flow.  Maybe that and howl like the coyote yesterday will get me back to standing straight.

Don't take everything at face value.

Wise words.  My Father always use to say "believe none of what you hear and only have of what you see"  Good words.

The booklet advises to go out and howl like a coyote to clear stagnant energy.  Sounds good to me.

Wanna puff?

Slow down and take a deep breath, have a puff.

I am a reformed smoker.  I loved smoking, everything about smoking.  From the moment you tapped the pack to eject a cigarette, the motion of bringing it to my lips, the strike of a match or the click of a lighter, the deep inhalation of the first hit of smoke and nicotine. Everything slowed down for a moment and then I would watch the curl of the blue smoke from the cigarette and the releasing puff from my lungs. I gave up the habit because the prices just kept going up.  It's been many years and I no longer miss them, but every so often, not all the time, when I pass through a cloud of cigarette smoke, I am not offended, I am reminded.
The Peace Pipe was smoked and passed for just the same thing; to stop, take a moment of contemplation.

We are the story we tell ourselves.
As a card of advice the booklet gives us: 'Take an event in your life that you gave a disempowering meaning and find a way to rescript it so that the interpretation of this same story is one in which your are the hero.'
 Sounds easy right, not.  I have done this journey and it does take the hard angles off the story and with time maybe all the harshness, but it takes time to change the story that has been part and parcel of our identity, and some our stories have been playing since childhood, in fact most of them have.
I listen to the story of others and hear them portray themselves as victims and wonder do they hear the same from me?

Pocket full of posies

Working my way down the chain of Pentacles. 

When I drew this card I heard "Out of the two comes ten thousand."  This is the third day of royal pentacles, the king, the queen, and now the princess.  She makes merry as she goes along her path.  Spring is in the air and tonight we set our clocks ahead one hour for 'Daylight Savings Time'  I planted some pansies the other day and this morning they are wearing a light coat of snow; Winter has not yet released his grasp. Soon ten thousand of us will be dancing and celebrating the Spring Equinox announcing the longer, warmer days of Spring. 
I am ready to begin something new.

The Queen of Pentacles, my identifier card,

Today will be a good day.  My gal pal the Queen of Pentacles is on hand.  I think she has showed up to remind that I have a friend in me, besides others. Yesterday I said goodbye to a friend because it was time for us to part ways. Thankfully the King of Pentacles was on hand to shore me up with his impassiveness when my 'friend'  had a hissy fit. I had given her a 'pass' card on many occasions, but it came down to a pentacle for me to say, enough is enough.  Thinking about it now it gives me lots of room to fill up with delightful, meaningful things that a Queen of Pentacles appreciates.

Worldly success and achievement, not just for men any more.

This King of Pentacles is too etheral and watery from my perspective; doesn't seem very grounded.
Recently on the nightly news there was reporting that Americans may prefer daughters over sons? What?  Typically when a girl child is born more often than not a decision is made to "try again" to get that boy so many parents want.  That is changing.  Sons might have been the preference because they could eventually add to the family's ability to make an income, now that girl power is on the rise there is a lot less bias.  Watch out Kings you are no longer guaranteed a seat in the Boardroom.

The other side of the World

Crucis, the Star pattern of the Southern Cross, or one of the stars in the Southern Cross.  Not something I will get to witness first hand, since I have never or ever will travel to the Southern Hemisphere. I can view it from online accounts and witness the magnificence of sky from the Northern point of view.  In the Rider Waite-Smith Tarot the Ace of Swords is pointing up; guess it is pointing down in this depiction since it is viewed from the southern perspective.
So maybe today I need to view something from a different vantage point.

Here kitty, kitty, kitty

I know most people link Strength with the Constellation Leo, which would all be based on the lion imagery.  Strength is more than just a roar.  Strength is endurance, going the distance, inner control and much more.  Leo the Lion is all about adoration.  They roar and meow when not getting enough attention, they are mostly about being noticed.  What's the point in being beautiful if no one tells you?
Maybe today I will encounter a lion that needs petting and I will just have to pull on my reserves and put up with someone's ego.

In and Out

Persephone and Demeter

I wonder if Persephone had stayed in the Underworld; would her love eventually have changed Hades and his frightening image transformed to a softer image, a personage of man who loved?   Lots of women fall in love with the bad boy; maybe Persephone ate the pomegranate seeds so she would have to stay with the man she loved.  A true Beauty and Beast story.  But no, Mother Demeter wanted what she wanted, and blackmailed Zeus into getting her daughter''s return.
Spring is in the air.  The Earth turns and the grass begins to green.  The trees are soon to bud and new life begins. The cycles of Life and Death are one of the true constants. Beginnings and endings.

That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

I think we have all heard that idiom before.  What a load of dead carp.  The King of Cups is a symbol of mastery of emotions, and some cup king most likely invented the saying.  I don't know about anyone else, but just about every man I have ever encountered that was a Cancer was a momma's boy. Easy enough to say  suck it up and not cry" when you go home and boo hoo into mommy's skirt. 
That which doesn't kill you, changes you, it doesn't make you stronger.  Sometimes it makes you hide out deep in the watery depths of your emotions.  If I run across this king today with some flippant comment, I will tell him to take a 'long walk off a short pier' - another 'pearl of wisdom'
