Tarot Card for the Day ~ June 18

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 just twenty-some days ago. And as I see it, it’s a wonderful magic-of-any-season-kinda-card. Perfect for the almost beginning of Summer, then, yes? 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!] [This commercial brought to you by… me.]

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 some would say 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 and want to try it on a regular basis.

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 summer 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? 

     Maybe not.

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 and magic!          

Quote for the Day: How many people here have telekenetic powers? Raise my hand.   ~ Emo Phillips
 

Today’s Weather: Moon-loony with those spidery-wispy little wossnames.  Things.  Thingies.  Right.  Thingies.  

On This Date: 1940 – “Finest Hour” speech by Winston Churchill.

So, how might this card apply generally for the day?  Well, among other things it could serve as a reminder for us all to remember that prayer and magic can be of benefit in mitigating and perhaps even healing the environmental holocaust in the Gulf of Mexico.

So it might behoove us to give the prayer attributed to Dr. Emoto a try.  Several times.  A day.  Every day.

Here’s some info and the prayer:

Dr. Masaru Emoto is the scientist from Japan who has done all the research and publications about the characteristics of water. Among other things, his research revealed that water physically responds to emotions.

Many people have the predominantly angry emotion when we consider what is happening in the Gulf. 

And while justified in that emotion, we may be of greater assistance to our planet and its life forms if we sincerely, powerfully and humbly pray the prayer that Dr. Emoto, himself, has proposed.

I am passing this request to people I believe may be willing to participate in this prayer, to set an intention of love and healing that is so large, so overwhelming that we can perform a miracle in the Gulf of Mexico.

 

We are not powerless. We are powerful. 

Our united energy, speaking this prayer daily…multiple times daily…
can literally shift the balance of destruction that is happening.

We don’t have to know how…we just have to recognize that the power of love is greater than any other power active in the Universe today.

Prayer
“I send the energy of love and gratitude to the waters and all living creatures
in the Gulf of Mexico and its surroundings. 
To the whales, dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, planktons, 
corals, algae … to ALL living creatures …

I am sorry. 
Please forgive me. Thank you. 
I Love You.”

    Thank you so much, Neal, for the beautiful prayer for all the waters in the Gulf of Mexico and all its creatures.

    It makes me feel peaceful (as opposed to fearful or angry) just to pray the prayer. And THAT’S the energy — peace, love, and gratitude — that the Gulf needs so much.

    ~ ~ Much gratitude, Donna P.S. So glad you’re blogging again!!! I’ve missed your messages.
