Tarot Card for the Day ~ June 15

The Priestess

Nimue

 

Haven’t seen her since the first weekend of the New Year.  Good to have her here again.

In general, The Priestess is seen as a keeper of secrets, of ancient or arcane wisdom.

She is also known as a wielder of strong intuitive powers.  So, I suppose, this would be a good day to get a reading.  Or schedule one, anyway.  (Hint, y’all.  Hint!

Or, [if it wasn’t a Monday], this would be a superb day to go to the Art Museum and just hang out among the unsurpassably beautiful power objects from other times, places (and dimensions).  Basking in their amazing vibrations can be spiritually empowering, and just sitting with them can alter your state of consciousness as profoundly as purposeful meditation.  Try it.  You’ll see!

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, sees The Priestess as indicating inspiration and a powerful connection with the collective unconscious or world soul.  Also, astute psychic ability.  A good time for it, as we come into summer, you bet!

When this card turns up for a client, I usually offer something like,

The Priestess is an important role model.  She owns her magic and uses it for her benefit and for the good of those she loves

So, one of the critical questions that I often finding myself working through with clients is, “What IS your magic?”  You can’t own it if you haven’t even identified it and been willing to stake a claim to it.  

And don’t try to weenie out of the discussion by assuming I’m ONLY talking about Dumbledore-caliber ceremonial high magic. 

So: what IS YOUR magic? 

Is it a gift for healing from your hands or in your soothing voice? 

Is it a long-developed ability to coax amazing music from even the most beat-up old piano (or guitar, or flute, or djembe)?  

Is it a capacity to write clearly and with passion about things that would put the Supreme Court into a hundred year slumber? 

Is it the knack to lighten the mood of a tense meeting with a smile and an off-the-wall analogy? 

Is it a love for numbers that helps a not-for-profit manage its razor-thin budget?  

Is it a talent for teaching and inspiring? 

Is it an ability to grow moss in the desert or sell refrigerators to an Inuit?

What is your magic?  Hint: it’s what you love to do, and what lifts people around you when you do it; and it’s what allows them some hope and healing because you do it − even if you’re stuffed away in a cubbyhole somewhere.   

Know your magic.          (Know you’re magic!) 

Own your magic.            (Own you’re magic!) 

Do what’s necessary for you to be and feel inspired.  Then use your magic consciously to benefit yourself and others.

Today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bright blessings, light and magic!

Justice

Lady of the Lake

 

Alright.  Look.  This card showed up on the 5th.  That’s just nine days ago.  Do you really need me to run through this again?  

What do you mean that’s why I get the big bucks?  Delusional, are we?

Okay.  So.  For those of you who actually NEED an explanation about a card entitled Justice,  let’s just take a little look, shall we?

Most readers would say something to the effect that Justice betokens equity, “rightness,” and justice in the consequences of past actions.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck I use, writes of the card delivering total honesty, just rewards, equal partnership and coming to agreement, among other things.

When Justice turns up for a client, I usually say something like,

“Regarding the situation, first of all, be sure you treat all justly – including and especially yourself

Work toward a truly equitable solution or situation.  

Don’t discount your needs and hopes, but neither may you let your goals be overbearing, overweening or overwhelming. 

Remember the ancient symbol of Justice is a scale weighing the balance of things. 

 So this is one of those cards that counsels,

 Do what is necessary to keep yourself in balance,

physically, emotionally, financially, etc.  And seek outcomes that are balanced, harmonious, bringing peace of mind to all.  And be confident such is possible.

Know what is just, equitable, honorable, hopeful and balanced.  Use that as your guide. Work firmly, calmly but directly toward that today.

 

Bright blessings!  

Quote for the day:    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.    ~ Douglas Adams, from The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Today’s Weather:  Auntie Wolfgang; horse chestnuts

And on this date: 1789 – Whisky distilled from maize is first produced by American clergyman the Reverend Elijah Craig.  It is named Bourbon because Rev. Craig lived in Bourbon County, Kentucky.
