Make a Wish!


I really like this card.  I can relate to the simple joy of walking along and encountering a beam of sunlight.  I would step into the beam and hold my arms out and relish the warmth and light.  I also really like the traditional Nine of Cups as represented in The Rider Waite-Smith deck. That dude is simply happy with his nine of cups, and this gal is simply happy to greet the light.  Since the Nine of Cups is the Wish Card, I wish for Joy, easy enough when I keep my thoughts full of gratitude.

Winter's goodbye


You sure wouldn't know it if you looked outside my windows.  Seven inches of snow yesterday and still some coming down this morning.  It started about 5pm and as I looked out the windows I saw the Robins hopping around trying to figure out what to do. One inch came down pretty quick and the trees were covered by 6pm.  The Robins arrived several weeks ago returning from their Winter retreats and now this.  Best thing to do today is Shelter-In-Place.  Stay warm and safe, just like these eggs in their nest.

I noticed that I started Sunday with this deck with an ace and each subsequent day 2-3-4.  I wonder if the cards are hinting at something?

You never know how good you got it.

That sentence may or may not be true.  Some know how good Life is and appreciate the good days and the not so good days as well.  This card reminds me of my Mother telling my sisters and brothers how when she was a little girl she could remember helping her Mother and Grandmother make ketchup, letting us know how fortunate we had it with the bottled version.  I recently did the Whole30 with my Sister and Niece and one of things I made was Ketchup; couldn't use the store bought as sugar was one of the things we had to eliminate for the month.
If I get the opportunity to join a group today, I will take it. SPRING begins sometime today, during the  snow showers predicted this afternoon

A new start with each day.

I wonder at any point does the caterpillar think about the upcoming metamorphosis and think, no, 'I am going to stay just as I am? 
I have had at least 22362 new starts.  That's the number of days in my 61 plus years at 365 days a year and adding an extra day for leap years and the odd number of days since my birthday. Some of those days are very memorable, the others not so much.  I guess this Ace of Air/Swords has come along to remind me today, I am different than yesterday, even if it is just a tinge, and tomorrow - different again.  It makes me think of a line in Sharyn Woertz's post yesterday, "every step we take marks and deepens our unique path"

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.
