Silver tongue

This Knight of Wands has a clever way with words, otherwise how could he convince a rabbit to saddle him and take him for a jaunt?

Today it is supposed to be all rain.  Good day to stay in and maybe do some sales calls and see if I can connect with a few clients for now and the future.  I was never really 'clever' with words.  I am all the straight out approach.  If I can help I will, if not, I am on my way. "Saddle up bunny."

Now What

Who upset the apple cart?

There were a number of instances over the weekend that I incurred short bursts of chaos.  Those are the times to fall back on the tried and true, structure.

The Shadow

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men, the Shadow knows."
evil--live, vile, veil, lie

Can we or do we, ever knows what another really thinks?  What lurks within.  Can we know what life has dealt another?  Maybe this fairy captured and stacked all the snowballs because he grew up with next nothing and his fear of lack causes him to be a bully, when in reality he just needs someone to see beyond his/her shadow self.
Today I will give myself and others the benefit of a doubt.

The Path

How many times in life have I taken the path of least resistance?  The 'go along to get along' mentality. Probably more than I care to admit.

Some of those choices didn't really make much of a difference, didn't shape the me of me.  One though, did.  I knew it was wrong and in reflection I keep asking myself the why of it.  Thirty years now gone by and still I see the result it had in the lies of my life, and how those lies have affected even the here and now. 
I guess it was part of this life's experience.  I wonder a lot even to this day, if I had not followed that path and just said "no thank you" and moved along.
Actually there was another one...guess I better get my calculator out and start a count.

Summer to Fall

Seasons change and so do I. 

My daily affirmation calendar "Today I just show up and flow through the day."  Appropriate for this Queen of Cups.

I have noticed in the last few days splashes of orange and yellows appearing among the trees.  Yesterday morning I heard a gaggle of geese honking above as they begin their autumnal gathering.  It is all part of the flow of change, and it is time for me to think of my own preparations for the changing of seasons.

Jingle Jangle

That is the phrase I heard when I looked at this card. So I went out to the www and wanted to see where the expression originated.

I always associated the phrase with the jingle of coins in my pocket, you know when you are standing in line with nothing much to do but wait (this was before the cell phone) and you just jingled the coins in your pants pocket.
Upon discovery Jingle Jangle was a tune performed by the Archies back in the 1960's.  There is also a song named Jingle, Jangle, Jingle performed by lots of old country western singers that refers to the sound their spurs make while horse back riding, also I think back in the 60's.  I think the Archie's song came first so I don't know if there was ever a suit for infringement.  Anyway, I going to take a nod from the card and go out and jingle jangle some of my coins today and come back home with less than I started with.

Care-ful management

This lovely fairy is arranging  dandelion blooms in the garden. 

I used to admire those well maintained and landscaped yards.  Green green everywhere. Not a blade of grass out of place and not a dandelion in sight. I was never one to spend my coins on professional weed control; the management of my flower beds with my hands was enough.  Those lovely lawns are killing off bees and so many more of Earths lovely creatures. 
All those chemicals seep into the ground, run off in to the storm sewers after rain fall into our creeks, rivers, and oceans.  All those chemicals - just keep the lovely dandelion from blooming.  Now when I drive the neighborhoods when I see a yard full of dandelions I give a nod of thanks to those homeowners. 
Acid Rain?  Definitely from our own making.

Practice makes perfect

Practice makes perfect.  How many times over the years have I heard that one.  Some wisdom in those words and sometimes I think all that practice on one skill set might choke the magic right of our me.

The wonder of being a Magician's apprentice, to learn what they will learn.  I think this young fellow had enough of working on his skill sets and decided to take what he has learned and headed out and see where it will take him, much like the Fool, out and about.   
This young elfin holds the Infinity Symbol in his hand.  I learned a bit of magic healing a few years back from a healer.  Imagine the lemiscate stitching and repairing tissue from a wound. I work with this healing mystique still today.

I must remember that I hold a bit of magic in me as well.

Until I listen

This guy again?

It seems just about anytime I spend time with this deck, this fellow makes an appearance. I don't understand what he has to say to me.  Of course I am not prone to listen to old men's advice.  Funny that, because now I am in the same age group, so the guy is not really not an old man just a contemporary.
Maybe I should just sit down with him once and for all and hear him out.

Wing It

Get Up, Get Going...


Fear can keep oneself stuck.  I have been stuck at the crossroads of indecision numerous times in my life, and then something comes along a gives me a shake and I get up and get going on my way.  A gentle shake is much preferred to a major crisis. 
I have been watching too much of the Weather Channel, time to get outside in the Sun-shine.

Lots of prayers

Heaven's Heart

I think we are all going to need some prayers.  With Hurricane Harvey and now Irma speeding towards Florida and the Southern States, and all the wildfires burning in the Western part of the United States, it may be winter before we can all take a deep breath.  I still have a feeling that the US will experience a huge earthquake, maybe the quaking is all the devastation we are in the midst of.
My Sister and her husband are visiting friends in Florida and last night I told her to find some gasoline, fuel up and head out.  They are just south of Tampa Bay currently.  Now part of their vacation is helping friends pack up so they can all head out and come north tomorrow.
Hang on it, it is really going to get bumpy from here on out. Let's pray the orange man and the short man in asia don't add to the mayhem.

Hello God

Another tree of change and seasons.  Sue Lion features trees in many of her cards.

                       TREE
I think that I shall never see
a poem lovely as a tree
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
against the sweet earth's flowing breast
A tree that looks at God all day
and lifts her leafy arms to pray
A tree that may in summer wear
a nest of robins in her hair
Upon her bosom snow has lain
who intimately lives with rain
Poems are made by fools like me
but only God can make a tree.
- Joyce Kilmer
 This poem reminds me to go spend time with a tree.  Give it a big hug and in that moment I connect with the Infinite, The Divine

Labor Day, a Federal Holiday. Also considered the unofficial end of Summer.  Many people enjoy the long holiday week, with today, Monday, a paid day off.  Not me.

Seek

"And the earth bursts forth with mercurial beauty as the energy of change infuses us with joy. Seek. Sing. Love. Linger. Breathe. Bathe in her sparkling scent." 

A lovely reminder to get out and enjoy these last days of Summer.  The days are beginning to shorten and the air whispers of change. Seems too soon to exchange my pots of summer blooms for those filled with Mums.  Apple cider and pumpkin patches. I noticed lots of butterflies in the trees and know that most here have begun there flights to warmer places.  Still time enough to enjoy the late days summer.


"...Don't wait! It is time to play in Earth's garden and see her for who she is - today.  Don't hesitate! Go linger, breathe, and be one with the present moment."  Sue Lion

Farewell

One of my favorite teachers passed the other day.  Louise L Hay left the planet on Wednesday August 30th.

 I have been re-reading some of her books that I have. these last few days.  I became familiar with her beliefs and advocacy  back in 2005 when I was going through some very dark times and happened across her book 'You Can Heal Your Life'  Working with some of her teachings and saying affirmations helped me from a dark place.  And I will say when I suffered lots of trauma from the  tornado I again turned to affirmations to help my healing.  So here is to Louise L Hay, I hold her up to the Light and sing a song of gratitude to her.

King of the hill

My cards are pairing up this week.  Two nines, two kings, and now the second of two horses?

Actually maybe two unicorns.  I think the Ace of Air the other day was Pegasus with a horn.  This is a bit of a magical horse so my take away is to get to the top of the hill sometimes requires a wee bit of magic, or a lot.  My stay at the top of hill might not be long, cause there is always someone else who gets a turn on the top, so I celebrate my moment.
Happy First Day of September.

This one or That one?

The road not taken was not your path.

Another nine today. Something ending. The typical Nine of Wands has a theme of hardship, calling on some inner strength to finish the task taken up in the Ace of Wands. This fairy gal seems to have enjoyed her challenge and looks back to see how far she has come.  Good advice, worry not on what's ahead but congratulate myself on what I have managed to accomplish.

"There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading to the same place, so it doesn't matter which path you take.
The only person wasting time is the one who runs around the mountain telling everyone that her or his path is wrong" -Hindu Proverb

Own it

Sometimes we realize we are right were we are supposed to be, in the garden of our own making.

There are days that I question myself, " how did I get here?" I have always made my choices and owned them, good and not so good.  Change is upon me and I will remind myself that I made the choice and did not wait for it to come to me.

"One is the loneliest number that you will ever do, Two can be as bad as one, it's the loneliest number since the number one."
ONE -Sung by Three Dog Night
Being alone does not have to be lonely.  Sure there are days of isolation, but you can experience that with another or a room filled with anothers.
I like this card of Nine of Pentacles, surrounded by the things of my own making.

Heart Sense

Lead with your Heart.

Another King. One drawn Sunday and now today.   From Rachel PolIlack's TAROT WISDOM: King of Wands, " A very confident figure, may be a woman as well as a man, for king is a role, not a matter of biology." 
I notice how busy so many are, rushing off to this or that. Work, shopping, children, constantly on the go. The need to be doing something. Is it so fearful to be with oneself in the moment? I realize that even though I have slowed down since accident, I avoid myself a lot. Mindless tv, games, eating - different variations on distracting myself.

Emissary

What a pretty pony.

Is there anything that needs to said when we view an image of  Pegasus? 
Colette Baron-Reid gives us "Destiny and fate, the law of karma, powerful forces of transformation at work, synchronicity

I guess that about sums it up.

Veni Vidi Vici

"I came, I saw, I conquered." A quote of Julius Caesar given to the Roman Senate in 46 BC.

When I first turned over this card I heard "Eat or be eaten" another quote about getting them before they get you.  The King of Pentacles is usually viewed as a benevolent, successful king.  In order to be successful I am sure there are components of ruthlessness.  Still to be the go to guy or gal you have to have some measure of accomplishment to be that go to guy or gal.
I am thinking if advice is sought and given, I best pay attention.

Harken

Do you hear what I hear?
Most likely not.

This card Fool reminds me that 'The Fool' stands apart of the Major Arcana.  Some see it as the first card, beginning the journey.  I noticed that there is no companion animal, no warning nature to this Fool.
Today I think I will receive a call of some kind and it will be a call I will need to pay attention to.  Sometimes the most simplest explanation is the best.

Why ask Why

I know the old saying is 'let sleeping dogs lie' in this instance maybe sleeping lions.

The author of this deck uses the image of the lion on a number of cards.  Either her astrological sign is Leo or a Lion is her totem animal and she bears a strong affinity to the cat.  I am not sure I get this one.  Leo is the fifth sign in the zodiac and if astrological comparisons are being made maybe Virgo would have been a good choice for the Sixth Major.  Baron-Reid gives us Love and not Lovers for the title, which I believe was the original name for this Major. 
If everything is in order and all things are working out, do we just go with the flow?  And why is it when we are in the flow so many times we step off the path, you know, where the lions are lurking in the tall grass?

Tiny Bubbles

There are six bubbles that I think may contain wishes made at the well.

The booklet gives us "nostalgia, sweet memories, old flames, yearning for the security of the good old days."  The reflection is not of the gal kneeling at the pool, but of someone seemingly younger.  My first thought was the woman was a selkie, too long trapped on land because of her missing pelt.  The image in the water may also be our younger self, or the inner child. 
Something to ponder on while I head to a class. I decided to grab six pieces of round sea glass and put in my pocket, a talisman for me today.

Give it a go

Trying something new - Yes you may have regrets if you do, I think you may have more regrets if you don't.

There have been times that the fork in the road presented itself, left or right?  This way or That?  There have also been times that I have stood at that point of decision with indecision and the paths faded.  Doing nothing gets you nothing.  Change can be good.  Time to try something a little different.

Catalyst

"Creative collaborations, soul connections, passions inspired by Spirit, artist."

This Queen of Wands seems to be looking out at me and saying "come on Carolyn you know what your heart's desire is."  Do I?  It changes from year to year and season to season. 
I know this, I ain't gonna find it sitting around pondering on it.  So I am going to get myself up and moving and let that propel me - forward.  Today - anybody's guess.

Enjoy yourself

Nine of Water, 'Wishes fulfilled.'

What a truly enchanting card for me today.  Any day spent near the water and a chance to meet some of my merepeople kin, is a day in paradise. This mermaid holds a key - to her chest of treasures; I wonder if she always had it or just recently found it on the sea floor and has now unlocked her chest of treasures. Time for me to plan another trip to the seashore.
My favorite website:
http://www.plumleegulfbeachrealty.com/indian-rocks-beach-webcam.asp
I turn to it to remind me of home.  I love to look out for passing dolphins, hard to glimpse because of course there are other things to do than watch the to and fro of the ocean.

Enjoy the Solar Eclipse and make plans during this powerful New Moon phase.

Uncertainty

Lady Justice with her stoic gaze has lowered her sword of truth and her scales, out of balance.

The booklet that came with cards gives us: "the law of cause and effect is in play...elements in my life balance out. What goes around comes around. I'm now seeing evidence of this law in the conditions of my world."   Reminds me of the saying an 'eye for an eye just makes everyone blind.'  
Everyone has their own brand of justice.  What really 'rights' the scales?  Fighting hatred with more hatred begets more hatred.  There is no getting even.

Buckle Up

NEW MOON

This month's New Moon occurs auspiciously just as the Moon finishes it's eclipse of the Sun on Monday.  What a wave of powerful energies that will be flowing over us.  I can already feel feel the shift around me.  Renew! If there was a time to begin something new, that time is now.
To add to all this cosmic energy Mercury went Retrograde last Saturday August 12 for three weeks, which is always a good time to re-new, re-energize, re-start, re-cognize, and re-view.  Oh-oh, Pluto is also retrograde until mid September or so.  I think projects or just about anything started with this New Moon on Monday is really going to pack a punch and re-veal itself by the New Moon next Month.
Hang On!

Happy Little Forest

This forest depiction reminds me of some of those paintings that Bob Ross did in the JOY OF PAINTING on PBS.  I would watch him from time to time and enjoyed him as much as his paintings.  I love the ease and joy he brought to his audiences as he painted his 'happy little trees' and 'happy little clouds'.  I would also get a little peeved with his mastery of bringing such wonderful images to paper when I can barely draw a stick person.  Well we each have things we are good at. 
I also loved his saying "no mistakes, just happy accidents" when he painted.   Now that is good advice for just about a lot of things in Life.

Stillness

Still waters run deep.  Is that old adage true?  Though the Lake looks quiet and serene, most likely there is all kinds of activity below the surface.  The air is so close and thick with humidity that even the crickets have become silent. It may just be too quiet for me.  As I have gotten older I enjoy the quiet more.  Younger I had to be on the move, keeping things at a fevered pitch, not so much now. 
I think I will take a couple of minutes and step into the picture and have a walk around the lake.  Like Alice stepping through the looking glass, I might discover more than I anticipated.

Harbour Wave

I first looked at this card and thought Yikes, what is going to happen today?  When I looked at the spelling of Tsunami I saw the anagram of  - I am nuts.  Almost spelled exactly backward of tsunami.  I loved to look at words and find other words or a different meaning in the letters arrangement.  Tsunami, a harbour wave. Destructive water.  Can also be an over-whelming moment of emotion, when seemingly I can be nuts.
Today, if something 'sets me off' I will try to let the wave of emotion gently roll on by.

Fog

We have all been here. The accompanying  booklet describes it as being "enmeshed in confusion and uncertainty".
Brain Fog - Clouding of Consciousness.  Sometimes we can just get out in the sunshine and let the fog burn away.  Other times a really good night's sleep will bring better clarity.  A good option is a vacation to blow out the cobwebs.  I experience these moments and sometimes days of technical difficulties and work my way through them.
On a different thought, some Farmers keep count of the number of mornings in August that have fog and say that is how many days of snow they will have in the forthcoming winter.  I have kept track of this for a few years here and there and it has been fairly accurate, until last year.  There was lots of days with fog in August 2016 and we experienced a very mild winter.  Climate warming has everything in disarray.

Sacred Space

I watched a Hay House video yesterday evening.  It was presented by Denise Linn on Space Clearing and Grounding; now the Tree labeled Grounding.  Today I need to spend a bit of time near a tree, maybe pack a lunch and head to the park and enjoy my lunch.  I know the perfect tree to perch beneath. 
Lovely beings trees are.  They do so much for us and and ask nothing in return.  They are there for other beings as well, those bears and the bird, and so many more. 
The longest and largest growing living thing on the planet is supposedly a grove of  Aspen Trees in Colorado.  New sprouts spring out of roots just above ground level and are identical to the tree that they spawn from.  Neat.

Victimhood

Awe Crud.

Hope this won't be a day of not feeling well or something occurs that I get all, despondent over. 
I was a not so pretty, badly broken, gal when I came through the tornado trauma five years ago.  Only once do remember saying "Why Me?"  Well why not me?  I would not have wished what I went through and I am still going through on another.  Sometimes stuff happens.  One thing I did learn to adjust to, was taking offered assistance when given.

Proclaim

Talk about your 'ship coming in.'

I have been hearing in my head on different days "it's a sign"
Is this draw of the Ace of Pentacles a sign that today is a good day?  Guess I will have the answer to that in about twelve hours. 
Everybody is out to celebrate this boat that has come to port.  Others in their boats, celebrants at the windows and on the balcony.  I am sure there are those at the docks waiting to off load the goods.  Everybody loves a bit of good news.

Apathy

Give until there is nothing left to give.

This Queen of Cups seems hollowed out.  Her emotional well is depleted and she can barely hold up her cup.  From time to time I get to feeling this way; drained with nothing left to give or offer.  Others do it us and and sometimes we do it to ourselves. 
I best be on guard with my emotional commitments today.

Not for me

Ill gotten counsel.

I was whining to a couple of friends the other day.  Just a little venting and their advice was based on what they thought was best for me.  I appreciated their concern and I was a bit tempted by their suggestions, then after further consideration I knew it was not good for me. 
As in the typical Two of Swords, I need to sit quietly with myself and figure out my source of discontent and act on it accordingly.

Work and Play

I believe this knight's journey is back to a day when being out and about and riding his horse was more enjoyable.

Can I still capture some of my youthful exuberance?  Is there time? Do I have the means or the energy?  Watching children play with all their boundless energy, I and others often state "I wish I could bottle some of that energy and use for myself."  Once upon a time, many suns ago I too had that seemingly inexhaustible sense of magic and marvel.  Maybe like the knight I need to travel to days gone by and begin my search.

p, q, i, t's

I drew the Nine of Cups again this morning.  I placed back in the deck and reshuffled and then searched and found again and the card following it for a deeper understanding about what the Nine had to relay to me.

August is a big month with lots of cosmic activity.  Not only do we have the Solar Eclipse on August 21, there is a Lunar Eclipse this Sunday that coincides with the Full Moon. The lunar eclipse will not be visible on this side of the Planet, still it's influence is bound to be felt.  Also Mercury goes retrograde on August 12th. With all that, August is considered the Hungry Ghost month in Chinese Astrology; potential threats and criminal activity are highlighted, especially in the evening hours and my guess would be during the Solar Eclipse when parts of North America will be shrouded  in darkness.  So back to my cards, August is supposed to be a fairly auspicious month for me and Temperance advises me not to get to involved with all the fray and maybe a few prayers will help too.  p-q-i-t is my take on mind my pints and quarts and dot my i's and cross my t's.

Judgement

Confucius as the card of Judgement confuses me.  He appears more likely The Hierophant.  I remember in my younger days there were a bunch of witty, sarcastic one liners "ahh, Conficius say"

One of his tenets was "do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself." - The Golden Rule
Can we ever know what another does or doesn't want?  What I need or want is different than the next, and I think much different in different cultures.  When Confucius live 551-479 B.C.  rural China had to be much different than the China today and America was still off the edge of the flat Earth.
I best not decide or judge what is best for another, besides I have enough work dealing with myself.
