Pair of...

Yesterday Queen of Swords and today her sister, the Queen of Wands.  What a pair of great gals.  The Queen of Swords told me the truth and The Queen of Wands, suggests I live my truth.
I read a line somewhere and for some reason did not write down the author or book, something about magic. Guess I will search it out...
"And it was here that the truth was revealed to me. If having money, a boyfriend, and all sorts of stuff didn't have the power to make me happy, then it follows, that the absence of those things never had the power to to make me unhappy."

"Balls said the Queen, if I had them I'd be King." Jill Clayburg in Unmarried Women, movie

Multifaceted

Pressure not only forms diamonds it forms and shapes us.
I gave notice at my part time inside real estate job yesterday.  The pressure I was under was transforming me to someone I did not recognize.  I was suffering from bouts of depression and little fits of rage.  Who needs that?  I finally listened to my own Queen of Swords' wisdom.

Alignment

Balance and symmetry, lovely when things come together.
My other thought was all lined up, like ducks in a row.  Well, we all know how lining ducks can go, every which way.  Reminds me to remind myself, though things may look in order, blink and and my lovely symmetry has become chaos. 
Enjoy the moment.

Forfeiture

Giving up our Rights by not voicing our thoughts and opinions. 
It is a shame really that society has taught many not to draw attention themselves.  Manipulation and Mystification has kept many voiceless.  Times are changing. 

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear." -Franklin D Roosevelt

Gather Ye Rosebuds

A few months ago, my niece's boyfriend asked me if I remembered what I wanted to do when I was younger, I immediately answered, make money. Not much of a goal.  We can all make money, but do we all really live?  The constant work-a-day life has dimmed my 'light' and I need to toss aside those heavy wands and gather some rosebuds, while I may.

The Inessential Destroyed

The authors give up us 'The Inessential Destroyed' that Tower moment.  Devastation, possibly.  My first thought when viewing the card was 'stinkin thinkin' you go looking for trouble; you are going to find it.
Inessential Destroyed; sometimes you have to have Tower moments to move you...on.

Unbridled Joy

Counting Up!.  Yesterday Three of Wands and today the Four. 
Looks like these beach goers have come together to make magic. From their song and dance a new energy emerges and bursts forth. 
I find it interesting that the energy beams have a shadow on the sand and not the dancers.  Maybe they are mer-people out having a moon dance before returning to their watery world.  Sometimes a mystery cannot be solved and I am meant to just enjoy the beauty and magic of the moment. 
Ahh to live in that moment of unbridled joy.
"what a marvelous night for a moon dance."

Focused efftort

Focused effort is what the description given by the accompanied lwb.  I first looked at the this Three of Wands as someone determined to unbind themselves, the struggle to be freed of others constraints.  I guess that would take focused effort.  I actually did a reading last night with this deck and the focus point was this Three of Wands covered by The Nine of Coins.  Focused effort for individual security or accomplishment, makes sense. 

The Fountain Tarot is a new deck for me.  Looking through the cards I think I am going to like this deck.  A bit more modern and based on the Rider Waite-Smith Tarot which is my preferred deck. Lots of geometry and soft images.  There is an extra card added to the Deck, A Major named 'The Fountain'  (Be)- Oneness, Cosmic Clarity- Ether

Effortless

Go with the flow.  Whatever I encounter today, I am just going to go with the flow.

Ostara and Equals

Spring Equinox.  I wondered why The Spring Equinox, a long way off, or quite a bit behind me, has to say to me.  Yet wait, in the Southern Hemisphere it is late Winter and Spring's promise is in the air down there. The longer I look at Ostara I see balance and thinking she maybe the twin of Justice.  With the Spring Equinox there is balance, equal amounts of day and night time, so it might be something to consider.  What I do with that consideration I am not sure?
If something appears out of whack or just upside down to my way of thinking, could be just right to someone on the other side of the World.  Perspective of time place and happenstance.

Witness

Not much I find more enchanting is the night sky.  Well the beach and sea is right up there too.  I guess than my happy place would be on the beach listening to the waves and laying back and watching the night sky.  I found my happy thought!
The booklet mentions 'The Witness' that which is us watching ourselves and reminds us that we are made of star material. Maybe small and seemingly insignificant, I know that I am made of the same stuff hanging in the night sky, comforts me.

Stillness

Almost every time I consult with this deck, I seem to draw this card. Forty-eight cards, a couple times a year, not really high odds, still, interesting. This card stirs up a bit of anxiety. Everyone needs a little down time, sacred space to tune out the World and all the noise. This scene is oppressive and stifling, at least to me. The empty boat makes me think that one can leave, but leave and go where?  Maybe that is the crux of the anxiety.  Because wherever you go, there you are.  Most days I know who I am, I look at myself everyday in the mirror, but there are depths to me that even I don't want to spend time there.  I woke up this morning say "I love and approve of myself' the constant affirmation that Louise L Hay advised to continually chant and tell ourselves.  That and this card must be linked today.

Volatility

This exploding volcano is like a Tower, though I think a Tower moment is when something external affects our lives.  This is a  self-created 'tower' moment.  We have all had those moments when reason is lost and we 'just blow our tops' - well at least I do.  It has been many years for me to have such an event. The massive Tower event in 2012 that I experienced changed my landscape.  Since then the "Pele" within me has been dormant, which I prefer, but...there is pressure building in my core.
Volt is within volatility, maybe I will just have a volt bolt tower moment.
