Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. — Paul Boese
His piece of the pie is bigger than mine – wah! The illusion of Competition. That’s been the topic this week during readings. No wonder today’s Tarot Card of The Day was the 5 of Wands, about feeling competitive. What experience has taught me is there is enough for everyone, and we each attract according to right of consciousness: our expectation and belief about how much of anything we think is available to us. And it’s all related, everything. He advertises more? So what! No one can take anything from you for long. If you’re all caught up in the world of emotions, you’re operating on an astral level. The astral level is where a lot of illusion lies. As we raise in consciousness, we rise above the astral level so that truths are less and less clouded by illusion. As we meditate, we are no longer driven by our emotions, we can distance ourselves emotionally from the situation. When we can view the situation objectively, we see there is never any competition. What anyone else does doesn’t matter, unless you think it does. Again, your expectation and belief governs what you attract. Continue reading
Your Card for today. Meditate upon the meaning this card might have for you since it showed up at this exact moment. Not everyone saw this. Not everyone attracted this message onto their monitor. YOU DID. There are no mistakes.
MEANING: The reversed 5 of Wands can indicate open conflict and competition, usually in the work arena. Take one step at a time and think before you act or speak. You have a real need to believe in and trust yourself now. Trust your instincts. but be hesitant to escalate conflict or to take irrevocable steps. Don’t be hasty, no matter how angry you get in coming weeks. Continue reading
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. ~Carl Jung
A friend just had a transformative weekend. He went away Friday with one set of beliefs and returned Tuesday wanting an entirely new life. Now his work is integration. Now his work is to tell those he shares his life with that it’s time to move on. The life he thought he was building with them is no longer a life he wants. He thought it was. It turns out it’s not. Never for a moment stay where you aren’t happy. There is always a way to part with honesty, honor and kindness. When infatuations fade, when intentions change, don’t hold others to old words. Worlds can change overnight.
Meditate upon the meaning this card might have for you since it showed up for you at this exact moment.
MEANING: Especially in reverse, The Moon indicates that things may seem somewhat confusing to you now and/or to those close to you. It’s important to “sit” with the uncertainty, don’t try to force things or people to do things before they are ready. You are definitely in a more “psychic and intuitive phase” than usual, so it will be important for you to trust your instincts and your impressions, even if you don’t know where they are coming from. However, when you draw the reversed Moon, the impressions you are getting may be less than clear and easily misinterpreted. Continue reading

Gardening is not just a creative pasttime for me. It also helps in my personal development. Having a yard that lets me continually change the landscape as I please gives me a big feeling of managing something big in my life, and doing it in accord with Mother Nature. It helps me feel connected to the Earth and the natural rhythms of the Universe: the seasons, the moon phases, the planetary aspects, all constantly changing. It helps me feel connected to Whoever or Whatever is out there and, the more connected I feel, the less of a name I need to give it. I see gardening as a daily spiritual practice. Continue reading
What have you been spending your time care-taking, rather than attending to what will move you forward toward something meaningful? I seldom realize I’m doing it until I’ve stopped doing it.
You know that thought you keep thinking that is driving you crazy but you can’t stop thinking it because it’s driving you crazy? Stop thinking it. It is driving you crazy. We can’t always control which thoughts arise, but we CAN control which thoughts we choose to continue to mull over. Stop thinking them. They are driving you crazy. Find another focus, now.
