Greetings my stellar friends, and a happy Witchy Wednesday summer evening to you! I had the distinct feeling upon waking this morning that I should use Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot Deck to draw a card to write about, and that lovely card is pictured above!
This card is the very last card of the great soul journey of the Major Arcana. The Universe card, The World card in the Rider-Waite tarot, signifies a glorious ending that leaves the journeymen right at the ledge they once began at as The Fool. The Universe card connects to the energy of Saturn, and in the Thoth Deck guidebook, the cards keywords include completion, cosmic union, and burning off karma.
The planet Saturn is currently under the sign of Sagittarius, having been there since December 2014 and continuing its transit through December 2017. Saturn is the conductor of energy taking form, it holds things together, and it also holds the key to our own karmic understanding. Saturn brings chaos into order and it makes sense of things that seem disparate. Although it is seemingly rigid, Saturn desires for us all to regain our power through understanding our pain.
Sagittarius could not be more unlike Saturn. Sagittarius wants freedom to go wherever passion drives, and soars like a flaming arrow throughout space and time. The constraints that are implicated by Saturn are like a pressure cooker for Sagittarius, causing outbursts of passion and emotion along the way of this transit.
During the time Saturn is in Sagittarius, this could either influence you to be so fed up with what is expected of you, your commitments, routines, responsibilities etc., to the point where you become over indulgent with alcohol, rich foods, and stimulants as a way of comforting the part of you that wants freedom.
Similarly if you've been feeling as though you always stick to your routine, you are responsible and not over indulgent, you do everything by the book, your inner adventurer has probably been wanting freedom. So this transit could present you with new opportunities for bringing travel and excitement into your life.
Currently, the buzzing planet Mercury is in the sign of Leo, and it aspects trine Saturn in Sagittarius. I believe this connection between fire signs is an important transit that connects with the card I have pulled for today, and now I would like to dive more deeply into The Universe.
This card arrives to address our thoughts surrounding cosmic oneness. The Universe is the end of the journey that was initiated by The Fool. This card is here today because in some facet of all of our individual experiences, something is ending, and something new is beginning.
Look at the woman on this card, as the handbook states, "The nude woman dances the dance of liberation." The time has come to end some cycle and liberate yourself. Once your awareness to your connection with all of the universe is initiated, the journey has begun, meaning your journey to this beginning is ending. This is the presence of Saturn that connects with this card, and it arrives to assist you in burning away all that no longer serves you.
This is a time to look at things for what they really are, to review the sections of your life with inspired scrutiny, and use the energy of fiery Sagittarius to address what gives you true happiness and passion, and to eliminate that which is holding you back. The transit of Mercury Trine Saturn heralds a time of important decision making, and implicates that whatever you set your mind you, you will experience seious results.
Both Saturn and Mercury are in fire signs, and I believe this amplifies my last statement threefold. We are in Leo season, a time of magical burning manifestation, and our connection with the forces of all of creation through the universe fuel us with a great power. We have the power to choose. If you choose to focus your thoughts on loss, deficit, debt, fear, etc, so is this amplified and experiences connecting to those feelings will appear in your life.
So today, The Universe comes to you asking you one simple question: what will happen if you choose differently?
The power is yours, to choose the life you want. Too good to be true? This time it's not, not even one little bit. All of creation is waiting for you to say "I am ready!"
I believe in you my stellat friends, and the great central fire that burns within us all. Until next time, smokey campfire kisses and warm marshmallow hugs.
Hey y'all and Happy (late) Witchy Wednesday. I'm not sure about how you all are feeling today, but I surely felt the buzzing energy of Mercury, especially after last night's full moon in Capricorn.
Buzzing along with Mercury I ended up having quite a frantic day, bussing around town to get my resume dropped off at a potential new job. (Good vibes welcomed!) But I certainly couldn't miss out entirely on sharing something with you guys on my favorite day!
That being said, I decided to pull a tarot card for all of us in regards to tomorrow, July 21st 2016, for what I will affectionately be calling Thoughtful Thursday.
Thursday is ruled by the planet Jupiter, a planet associated with the element of air, and which is called "the luck planet" by many. Jupiter rules the abstract mind, and encourages a person to "unpack" their thoughts in a philosophical way, a way that will allow them to grow through thought. Jupiter is the planet of abundance and self-confidence, and it influences each of us to achieve our greatest potential through actualizing our struggles.
The card I've drawn, pictured above, is perfect for this Thoughtful Thursday post, and I certainly hope you find something that resonates with you in its message.
The Eight of Swords is a card that connects with the element of air, and the swords suit associates with thought and communication, within ourselves and with others. The Eight of Swords indicates that at this time you may be feeling confused, stuck in a rut, or as though no matter what you do it wouldn't help to change anything. The Eight of Swords is arriving to tell you that these feelings are not created externally, by events in life, but rather internally, by your own thoughts and emotions.
Just look at the dragon in the card above, on all sides it seems to be blocked in, with nowhere to go. Ahh... but wait! Just above the dragon's head, there's a hole, a space where it could easily flap its wings and be free.
The arrival of this card signifies the same for you my winged friends, to alleviate yourself from this struggle, just flap away and free yourself!
Sounds too good to be true right? Well, it is, but only a little. I asked my deck to give us another card to accompany the Eight of Swords, to help us look at what kinds of thought and patterns are causing us to feel backed in to a corner. Ask and you shall receive, they say, because the second card I pulled was the High Priestess.
The High Priestess is the 3 card of the Major Arcana, just after the Magician who says "All things are possible with the power of your will." The High Priestess comes in to say, "Watch out what you wish for, because all things are possible with the power of will."
Get it yet? The message here, albeit a potential frustration, is that what you wish comes true. What you think becomes true. What you feel becomes true.
So, if you've been feeling like you're stuck between a rock and hard place, and if you've felt like your brain is a broken record replaying you all the reasons nothing is going to change or go anywhere, I'm here to tell you, the change starts within you. This means that it is up to you to take a look at what's going on for you, and really start to assess: What is happening that is entirely out of my control? What am I capable of accomplishing that is within my control? What thoughts or beliefs are limiting me from moving ahead in any way? Are there things I am concealing, and are these positive reasons or negative ones? What is my intuition telling me that I am either ignoring, or not believing to be possible? Is there anything I can do creatively to express these emotions?
I'd say overall that was a very spot on message from the cards, especially the connections with air, thoughts and communication, and swords and Jupiter. I surely hope that it is positive and transformative time for everyone. Remember that even if it's a small change, it's one piece of the big puzzle of life, and it's important! Keep pushing forward, one tiny revelation at a time.
It certainly seems like it will be a Thoughtful Thursday for all of us, I am sending my biggest lucky-hugs and celestial smooches.
P.S. Comment below, tell me how you feel about this post and if you dig Thoughtful Thursday!
Hey y'all, welcome and happy Thursday evening! As we head towards the weekend, I wanted to share a message with you from Archangel Michael.
So what is an archangel anyway? I usually worry about saying the word archangel to anyone. I feel like many people assume that I'll be trying to convert them before they know it. If anyone cares to know, I don't subscribe to any religion, I allow myself to follow my spiritual interests and learn for myself what resonates with me! That being said, I'd like to share my perspective of archangels, in the hopes that it resonates with you.
I personally, and lovingly, call archangels aliens, and I believe they are beings from higher dimensional planes of existence, that everyone can perceive with their psychic senses. I think that every human possesses what most people call psychic senses, but they're all basically a "sixth sense" that every human has (intuition anyone?). It's up to you to understand for yourself how to sense with your energetic body. (If a post with more info on psychic senses interests you, comment below and I'll work on a new piece to share with you!)
Anyway, angels and archangels are friends who want to offer their help to all humans, regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs, meaning you don't have to have a particular belief structure to receive their guidance, all you have to do is believe that it is possible to connect with them, and then ask for their connection, their help! When I first started meditating and asked to have an experience of meeting a spirit guide while in meditation, I was greeted by the Archangel Michael. Michael is the archangel of protection, who wields a sword of fire which he uses to cut away negativity from our auric fields.
I am not sure about you, but I have been feeling very anxious and confused this week, and after an attument with Archangel Michael earlier today, (of which I'll post a link at the end of this piece) I wanted to share his energy with you all.
Here is the channeled message from Michael:
Me- Archangel Michael, please join me here, and share through me as a channel your message for us all.
Archangel Michael- Greetings dear ones it is I, Archangel Michael and I am here to share a very important message with you today.
It is during times such as these that all humans begin to search for some semblance of peace, and I can hear the messages of all your hearts yearning for joy and calm, and so I am here today to reconnect you with your power.
Each human heart beats with an ancient rhythm that connects to the very core of life on earth, but the frequency which vibrates out from your beating heart is a pure and highly vibrating frequency which resonates with the creative power of the universe. So as everything in the universe exists, so as you exist, so does your heart create your existence. When you are afraid, hurt, doubtful, sad, angry, when your heart's frequency is dulled and blocked by these emotions, your life's experiences are reflective of that pain.
I want to share with you the knowledge of your heart center, the seat of your soul, because from a happy heart radiates the productive creative energy of peace. If you look at nature, all things continue, regenerate, recycle themselves in a way.
Flowers do not cease to grow simply because their blossoms died in the previous season, they grow again and again. Whole forests have been burned down before, but still, another begins to grow in its place. Just as the green leaves sprout in the spring, so does your green heart, which is continually desiring to blossom, but you have to burn away what no longer serves your heart.
Dearest ones, all humans have a choice, a choice to live in the world they desire, but in order to have happiness and peace and unending love, you must first make the choice, the choice that you simply will not tolerate any negativity in your life.
Humans are endowed with free will, meaning your spirit, your heart, lives and believes whatever it chooses, That means neither I, nor any archangel, nor any ascended master, or light being, or ancestor, or even the universal all, can interfere with what you desire, if your intentions are pure of heart. This also means that I, and the angels, and light beings of all kinds, can and will help you, all that you must do is ask, and once youve asked, be open to our responses. We are not flesh and blood, we are light, and energy, and our messages come to you in so many ways, so that you may see the opportunities and inspirations we send, and then act on them!
The universe supports the desires of your heart spirit dear ones, this is why you are here. You have made a choice to be here, right now, in this life for a purpose that benefits all life on earth, but you mustn't be scared any longer, you must trust that your wildest dreams can come true, that you deserve to have them come true, and others around you will benefit from your joy.
When you follow your heart and find your own true happiness, you inspire others to do the same for themselves, and when humans are truly happy with who they are and connect to their divine purpose, there is no longer room in the spirit for hate, jealously, anger, etc., there is only love and joy in the feeling of all of creation supporting your heart.
So my darling humans, be free to live your truth. Stop allowing yourself and anyone else keep you from living your joy! Work on releasing clouded negative feelings through your chakras, especially your heart, and reinvigorate your soul, aim towards the life of your dreams.
As always, I and the archangels can help you, just ask, send the intention from your heart space, and ask for our intervention, and so shall we help you. I am trulu thankful to speak to you all this way, I send numerous angel blessings to each of you, and the energy of cleansing blue to the world. Peace be with you all.
Me- Thank you so very much Archangel Michael.
Wow! I am so honored to have channeled this message for all of us here on earth. Thank you for stopping by to read this moving message by a very special archangel.
Sending big feathery angel wing hugs to y'all.
P.S. Here is the link to the awesome attunement that I did earlier today. It is a powerful cleansing experience, and I hope you guys dig it as much as I do!
Archangel Michael Attunement:
I awoke today feeling extra sensitive and also responsible, like I wanted to make a blanket big enough to wrap up myself and everyone else, so we could all feel safe and at peace. As the sleepy sand fell from my head, my dream blanket turned into a mercurial cacophony. "Why couldn't I do just that? I could make that blanket if I tried. How else could the blanket exist? You could make the blanket out of love!" ... and so on.
So, in light of the trajectory of all of 2016 so far, I decided to focus my energy specifically on a message of love for this week's Witchy Wednesday.
Today I connect you with the fluttering, crooning, and bubbly energy of the ascended master Aengus. Aengus is a Celtic god that is associated with soulmate love, and he came forward to share his message of love with all of us.
Take a seat and settle in, this is gonna be good.
Me- Ascended Master Aengus I ask you to join me here today, so that I may channel your message of love, what is it that you'd have us know?
Aengus- Salutations darling earthlings, my name is Aengus and I was sent forth today to communicate with you all. Your world is seeing some trying times right now, as there's a push to bring all impurities to the light. I am here today with a gift of hope for you, I wish to share with you encouraging words to keep your individual hearts out of the darkness.
When your world becomes chaos and terror, it causes a ripple effect of fear that spreads like a wildfire through every person's heart. You must remember that fear manifests itself differently between individuals, some become paranoid, some angry, some depressed, some confused, and some feel done with it all.
And then there are some who remain courageous. They do not let fear disrupt their divine connection to themselves, the universe, and all of humanity. Some of you are beacons of light in this darkness, and I am here today to reach out to you, to fan your flame so that you may shine brighter and brighter, so that you may help drive out the darkness that clouds others lost in the fog of fear.
If you ever feel inspired in these trying and scary times to speak louder of love, compassion, and understanding for fellow human beings, I am talking to you. Even if you do get angry, or worried, or sad, you still have a divine spirit that is whispering to you "There is always love."
If you find yourself defending all humans and animals, and planet Earth in it's entirety, I am talking to you. We need your fire now more than ever, your fellow humans and animals and plants need you to be unafraid to love.
Your love, your passion, your compassion, is part of an endlessly flowing stream of pure light energy, an energy that has travelled everywhere and back again through the universe. When you act in the name of love, you are sending that peace, that pure light, to whatever it is you're working with. When you send loving thoughts to anything, you send this light. When you direct loving thoughts and words to yourself, you allow yourself to receive this light of love.
More than ever before, the world needs your light, it needs your passion to see peace become manifested. It is your true divine power to give this love endlessly and selflessly to heal the dark spots with the power of your light.
Please understand my warning, do not allow yourself to be "caught up in the act", this chaotic horror that is a play, a show, meant only to distract and terrify.
Do not believe all you see, believe what you feel, what you already know. There are forces on earth that aim to control through fear, do not succumb, be the boulder in the ocean, stand strong in your peace.
Send love to those who need it. Intend on being as loving as possible, and start with yourself. Give yourself the best energy, make your happiness a priority, because when you truly radiate from fulfilling your heart's desires, you inspire anyone you meet to do the same for themselves, and so the ripple effect becomes one of love and passion, reaching into the farthest corners of earth.
Peace be with you all, please internalize these words and live and love in your truth. Your wildest dreams will follow next.
Until next time, be open, be honest, be love.
Me- Thank you dearly for your words Aengus.
There's not much left for me to say after that powerful message from the realm of ascended masters, except this: Love has everything to do with it.
Sending out my biggest blanket hugs, I hope you all find some peace in this storm.
