Alertness

Ace of Cups day.  I drew the Ace of Cups two days ago, different deck, and hoped and expected to receive a sign?  Well, Saturday nothing presented itself, which in itself might be a sign.  Still, drawing the Ace again reminds me to keep expecting lovely magic and wonderful things.  Last night I was out at sister's home, who lives some what remotely. As I left later in the evening on a very crisp chilly night, the sky was ablaze in starlight.  You see so much more on the cold, clear wintery nights, especially out away from the city lights. The constellation Ursa Minor way to the North was most likely visible.
I could fill my cup with starlight magic. Nice!

Peek-a-boo

Sure could use a dose of sunshine today.  Another cold, cloud covered day ahead.  Thankfully just cold and not going to see any of the wintry mix farther south of my area.  I looked to the calendar and see that in a few weeks the Winter Solstice will place a mark on the year before it ends.  Climate change is real. The last few years we are now experiencing only two seasons here, Cold and Hot; almost no temperate times in-between. Nothing stays the same, change is the constant.  The Sun helps us enjoy our days, we all look forward to our sunny days.  The little white booklet hints at receiving some sunny something.  I will look for the it today, and also hopefully, The Sun will peak out from behind the clouds this afternoon.

Hand delivered

Looking for a sign today, or soon. Last couple of nights, or maybe a couple times last night, I dreamed of a marquee sign.  One of those big across three lanes, interstate sign, that announces upcoming information.  I take this Ace of Cups that something is forthcoming, some new information or foresight. And I won't have to wonder because the information will delivered right to me.

Do a little dance

Each day a new day and we chose what to do with it.  At the end of our day can we do a happy dance of gratitude for the day we were given?  Some days yes, other days no, and still others, I didn't know where the day went.  Today, just today, I will try to be mindful of my day. Tomorrow will take care of tomorrow.

You never know what good things will happen if you're brave enough to be All You, All The Time.

Strike a pose

Sometimes life us takes counter what the main stream expects. Do your own thing, speak your own truth, live your life on purpose.  If it is different than others, great.  Life would be a big bore if we all marched to same tune.
I keep hearing the song by Bob Seger, "Against the Wind" whilst looking at this card. Today is a good day to take a walk out in the park and let the wind blow some of these indoor cobwebs from myself.

Less Traveled

Lead. Follow. Or get out of the way.  This is what I hear when I look at this card today.  A draw of the third Major in a row today.  After inner musings of the High Priestess and The Moon, outward momentum begins to take hold.  The Charioteer is not moving but is prepared to go. What direction?  One must put aside the inner turmoil and inertia and get behind the wheel of one's one life and get things going.  Lead. Follow. Or get out of the Way.

The yellow brick road

How do we choose which companion to ask us to travel the path ahead?  Not knowing what may lay along the path.  Whatever or whoever we choose there will be times of misgiving, second thoughts on choices.  Sometimes the choice is to travel alone, and hope we meet up with those others along the way.  Ultimately that is the only way; to make our own choice.  It is a kinder decision.  When we choose, we cannot lay the burden of outcomes on others shoulders or conscious.
I choose.

"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and to do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

Off Kilter

I tried to scan the High Priestess card several times and it loaded askew.  So I take that as part of the card's daily suggestion.  My sense  of the world around me or what someone says to me today may be 
out-of-sync with normalcy so I better trust my intuition and feel it through before taking it personally.  Or maybe my own internal conversation will be a bit off today.  A bit of caution with how I think and feel today is a good suggestion.

Unique

Do we keep what is unique and special about ourselves locked in our private container of ourselves?  That is such a personalized cup that the Queen is holding.  What if I would be, could be my most authentic self all of the time.  Time to open the chalice and find those bits of this n that of me that have been stored away.

Move along

December 1, one month and counting down till the end of 2018.  Another year for the books.  As I stand in my garden and contemplate the year behind should I begin to plan the year ahead?  But wait there is not a a full year behind me in 2018, still thirty one days to finish up what needs to be completed.  This card is a bit at odds. Painted bright yellow bodes energy and vitality; there is something about those pentacles being 'tamped down', a hooded hunter, and the slow progress of the the snail.
A reminder that things are not always as they seem.
I also find it interesting the Nine of Pentacles was my draw for October 31 and is first draw after my thirty days of Gratitude.  Though I took a break in my garden of gratitude, I have to pick-up right where I left off.  On-wards

Appreciation

Everyday there is something to be grateful for.  Appreciation of one thing  will call to mind others and let the count begin. 
Thank you.  Those are magic words.

Believe

Gratitude can open something up inside us, and allows us to always believe that something wonderful is about to happen. 
Magic, maybe. Appreciation, definitely.

Choices

I am grateful that I choose, I decide.  A freedom many forget they have and many that don't choose to use. 
The oracle may suggest that something is not for me, still ultimately I choose.  Wonder of wonders, a new day with new options.
