Tarot card for the Day ~ May 5

The Priestess

Nimue

Fortune Cookie:  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.

Hmmmmm… The Priestess last appeared for us at the top of last month. And as I see it, it’s a wonderful magic-of-any-season-kinda-card. So give ye a goode and attent ear here.  Or there.  Or wherever.

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, this would be a good time to let your intuition guide you − try not to get in its way!

[So I suppose this would be a good day to get a reading.  Or to schedule one, anyhow!

Some readers would say mystical studies may also appeal to you at this time, and you could take up the study of subjects such as astrology, tarot or other esoteric knowledge. And that incredible gifts await you. All you have to do is acknowledge that within lies all knowledge. There is some sense to this last bit ALWAYS!

Or, if it wasn’t a weekday, 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.  Or go in with your favorite MP3 meditation, and sit by something that sets your soul on fire. Try it.  Really. You’ll be amazed!

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 the coming of spring brings periods where the realms of magic open for us!  There can also be elements of a need for solitude today, so honor that if you feel it and if you can.

Finally, the Priestess is recognized as one who can walk fully and successfully in two worlds – that of ordinary reality and its people, and that the of the higher realms and the Fay.  [Time to read old books about Findhorn again, maybe? (http://www.findhorn.org/onlinecommunity/monthlythemes)  Or get to know Perelandra (http://www.perelandra-ltd.com/)?]

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 normally be a complete yawn? 

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 margin? 

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?  It’s what you love to do, and what lifts people around you when you do it, or 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!

    Hmmm… if anyone has a magical way of lightening the mood, it’s you. What a gift!

    Thanks (?) for introducing me to Cheech and Chong (musical interlude in celebration of El Cinco de Mayo. 🙂

    “I don’t think Home’s a place anymore. I think it’s a state of mind.” — Neil Gaiman. I find the quote helpful. I tend to be a home body. Perhaps ‘cuz I’m a Cancer. Yet, to know I can “take my home with me in my mind” is comforting. That perhaps is a twist on what he’s saying, but it’s helpful, as I’m planning to spend some time away from home this summer and already know I’ll be missing it.

    ~ ~ Blessings and gratitude, Donna
