Tarot Card of the Day – 2 of swords – swords are usually conflict cards which in not surprising right now, as Mercury is in retrograde. Swords are associated with the air element, also with the solar plexus chakra where intelligence lies. This card is most often considered a card of opposition or conflict, as the swords cut through the balance we try to create in our life. With this card coming today, we are being reminded that through conflicts, storms in our life, we can grow with change
Many people do not know much about the Tarot. There are several different theologies about the origin. Ancients magicians in Egyptian courts, believed that Thogh god of wise thoughts gave these to the people. These were given to help guide the paths to abundance, happiness. As the Romanian gypsies started migrating upward into Italy, and Northern Europe, these nomads brought along the Tarot. Many faith systems have declared them as “evil’, or from the “devil”, however in the 15th century, probably around 1442-1445, an unknown Franciscan Monk designed the deck we know of as Rider-Waite original for the Italian Prince Fillipe Maria Viscotti on his birthday. This deck has many Christian ideologies incorporated in it. There is a Devil , with the meaning of lies, lust, greed. There is a STrength which typically signifies angels around. Much of the translations of the card speaks of the Veil of Christ as well as other Catholic, and/or Christians theologies. Today many use the decks as a form of entertainment, often surprised at how the ideas formed can relate to day in and day out lives. If we can open our minds, much like reading the daily horoscope, or perhaps listening to a motivational speaker on TV, we can formulate pertinent plans in our lives.
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.Alan Watts
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. C. S. Lewis
The hawk soars against the calm blue sky reaching into the golden light of the sun,Father Sol. His wings ( wingspan of 45-52 inches ) spread out as wide as the rays of light streaming down through the green leaves of Bro Oak, mighty strong, powerful tree. Bro Hawk carries the wisdom of the gods, the power of the ancients, the glory of the universe as he continues the journey to the Other Side high above the mountains. Hard to believe at one time, not so very long ago, this majestic creature was a hard- shelled egg. Mother Hawk laid the eggs in her nest hidden in the tops of the mountain rocks, these babies are in the shell for 28-35 days, then taking 2 -4 days to actually hatch. Wow, how impressive is the fact that great of a change, the struggle to wiggle out of the hardness can bring such beauty, such power, such strength. Here we learn that our shells, our walls, as we struggle to get out of them, we can achieve the greatness, the power, the heights, the dreams we long so for. Yesterday as I visited the cemetary to walk among past family, friends, I kept hearing, the storms will make you strong. Ha, I thought but then waking to yet another torrent of rain with the flashing of the lightening, the roar of the thunder in the distance, I saw the power, the glory. As i came to see the center of the storm, Father Sol, the sun, came out to clear the skies, as I watch Bro Hawk, lazily, smoothly gliding once more to the highest heights toward the dreams

There is no fear when you choose love. The more you choose love, the more love is in your life. It gets easier and easier.Melissa Etheridge
4 am central time- We are up. watching as the Sun,Father sol, and the Moon, Lady Moon, are in the sky at the same time. The sun passes over the Moon, turning the Moon, the sky blood red. the whole of the purpled darkened sky lights up as if thousands of fireworks have burst into colors raining down on our spirits with beauty. The majesty of this wonder reminds us of the glories of the universe. With this we see the doors to OtherWorlds, the Other side opening up, allowing the lights to come back in. With this, we can expect great events, wondrous omens of changes to come. Even in the Old Testament, the Torah, the wonders of this moon speaks, ” the Sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes,” Joel 2:31. This is a prophecy reminding us that prophecy has long been accepted in every known faith system to man. As well, as the knowledge that the Moon, the Sun, the planets can reveal omens of change. this Moon is also the Hunter’s Moon, readying the days of harvest to finalize, to bring gains, to connect with the Mother Earth’s natural rhythms. Although Bro Mercury is in retrograde, this will bring about resolutions of conflicts, as we remember to Love. Love conquers all. Love heals the wounded. So as we dance in the early dawning of this day, we ask to love each person spirit sends our way. We may not like them, but we can remember the retrograde so temper our words with quietness, with gentleness. We ask to have truth, have clarity in our our words, our actions, as we greet each person with our energy, our spirit, our light. As each of us have light, we have darkness, we have light. We can chose love.
animal totems: Stag: Bro Stag of the Male deer is not quite a gentle as lovely Sister doe, or baby fawn. His totem is strong, protective, He isn’t seen as often as his rack of horns become bigger to be able to fight during the mating season of this totem. Nothing is so spectacular to see as two brother stags in the full moon battling for love. Power, belief in quietness, in gentleness, to fight for this truth is the medicine of this totem.

Moonzies preferred friends: During the mercury retrograde, tempers rise, hearts race, we fear to walk out our doors. Yet remember that this time also brings resolutions to problems, opening doors. I have found that lighting a “love spell” ( Victoria Secret’s formula of essential oils ) Candle from the Moonzies candle collection, helps with not only romantic love, but familial love, even from working associates! a hint of “love spell” non – chemical body mist walks us through our day with gentle love for all. We ship out every Tuesday. remember we are on Moonzies at a slightly lower rate but also on ebay, etsy, amazon! All our products are charged in the moonlight, kissed by Venus to bring magick back into our lives.! love ya
