Today's card is brought to you by the Sun Moon Tarot, It is the five of cups and the keyword is disappointment.
The fives in a deck are the challenge card, and cups points to emotions, So what do you feel disappointed about? How you you feel this disappointment happened? Where do you feel it in your body? Can you position it into another frame? Disappointment is only a word that describes your perception of a situation, if you change your perception, the disappointment goes away. This is how we let go of emotional baggage and transform (see yesterday's card). this card really ties in nicely with yesterday's. As you can see from the picture, three of the cups are empty and floating away, yet she still has two full cups next to her. Take stock of what you have rather than pining for something that has been irrevocably spilled. The spilled wine cannot be separated from the river water, it is gone never to be back in its original state. Sometimes situations are just over, never to be "the way it was", so take stock of what is, because that is what is present, real and demands attention and energy now. The open lotus at night also speaks to the energy available to focus on now, to release the old to transform.
Have a great day folks! There's a long stretch of beautiful weather ahead. Wear sunscreen and a hat, protect that beautiful body. ~Mamma Moon
Card of the day
Today's card is brought to you by the Sun Moon Tarot and is the 6 of Swords. The keyword is Science.
We are getting a lot of 6 cards lately haven't we? Lets talk about 6 cards for a quick second. In the Tarot six cards are the re-balancing of the difficult energy of the five. The five cards are always the "speed bump" card of the deck. The six is the re-balancing of that energy.
The re-balancing energy here is the energy of the intellect. Now is the time to take stock of a situation objectively and systematically in order to overcome the difficulty of the five. Study the situation empirically, form a question, then form a plan to move forward using a rational and purposeful mind to consider all the information. Now is the time for intellect rather than emotion to bring balance. Using the intellect is the key right now. This is the path of least resistance.
Today is going to be in the low 80's here in the Great Midwest with lots of sun. Get out there and enjoy the day! ~Mamma Moon
Card of the day
and oToday's card of the day is brought to you by the Chrysalis tarot and it is 20 Judgement of the Major Arcana.
The Phoenix is the card of the day, the keyword is "rebirth".
If you are on the hero's journey, it is almost complete. You have done the shadow work, you understand that all conflict comes from within rather than without, you understand that the rudder of your life is in your hand rather than projecting your courses of actions upon others. You have done the hard work. the reaping of your sowing is at hand. The reaping is the understanding that you control your own life, your own thoughts and your own happiness or sadness. I feel like this is the journey we have been on over the last few weeks. dont you? We have almost finished the cycle, and the next cycle is beginning to become clear.
If you are beginning the hero's journey this card has shown up today to point to the job at hand. Be aware of sychronicities, signs and omens that will guide you to a path, then start the journey with a light heart and an open mind (as the fool). What does your journey entail? What beginnings are just now coming into view? What is your heart whispering needs to be started, or ended? Now is also a time to allow something to burn in the all consuming fire, as well as be born from the ashes. sometimes this happens all at once. So, sit in the quiet for just a few seconds and consider "what needs to burn down? What seed needs to be born from the fertile ash of the last conflagration? Listen to the whisper.
Great stuff today! I certainly enjoyed this card, hope you did too! Its going to be beautiful today, get out, take a walk...use sunscreen its almost Friday folks! ~Mamma Moon
Good Morning! Todays Card of the day is "The Universe", brought to you by the Universal Wisdom Oracle Cards. Todays keyword is "stillness". Be still and know that you are God. All things spring forth from the two words "I Am", It is rumored God created the entire universe with those two words as we all do every morning when we wake up and move about in the world. Every reality is created from within, never from without. The Universe is here to ask "what are you creating?" Are you giving your creative power to someone else? To the past? To fear? To another human? Today is the day to stop and take stock in who holds the power in your life. Be honest, is it you? Or is it a false belief? If you are not in charge of your own life, then you are only going to be as happy as another person can dream,
Take a breath, close your eyes, be still. discover the power of now. the power of YOU.
Have a great day folks, feisty thunderstorms this afternoon here in the great Midwest, take an umbrella and get inside if you hear thunder. Have a good one folks, stay dry, stay safe, ~Mamma Moon
Todays card of the day is brought to you by the Medicine cards (Jamie Sams) The card is rabbit and the keyword is fear.
Little bunny has hopped into your life today to warn you that running from things that frighten you will only cause you to be distant and exhausted. The warning of the day is just because that is how it has always been done doesn't mean its still a viable course of action.
Rabbit is also a sign of great fecundity, great creative strength. What ideas are you having? One of the definitions of fecundity is an ability to have a great many ideas. Perhaps too many. Rabbit brings fear and hesitation to the situation of so many ideas. Is someone shooting ideas at you at the speed of a Gatling gun? Well little bunny now is the time to collect your ideas in an unthreatening way. Write down all your ideas in a journal, just quickly jot them down and put them away for a little while. After a day or two have passed go back to them and weed out the ideas that are most viable, that way they are much less overwhelming. This way the not so good ideas can be weeded out.
Another aspect of Rabbit may be paralyzing indecision go left or go right???? Make a decision or be rabbit stew. Personally I have been on this planet long enough to know this is true...just make a decision, go with it, if it is not the right one you will be shown and you can course correct, no one dies (which is my rubric for everything, If no one dies, it will be ok no matter which hole I scurry down.)
I hope this was enlightening, its going to be a warm one out there today, hydrate, and super sunny, use sunscreen, mostly...have a great one folks, ~Mamma Moon
