04/23/19 Tuesday: Your call to action!

IMG_4348

((Dreams of Gaia Tarot, Ravynne Phelan)) 

As our week progresses, we see a need for an action plan to keep us on track. To form our plans, we must ask ourselves:

  1. Where is the action best applied? (This week: Seven of Air – Kindness)
  2. What action is needed? (This week: XIX Emotions – Feelings)

The template for our plan includes kindness and intuition.

EDUCATION IS WHERE: If you follow the news at all, there has been much indoctrination and very little education – this has been a problem. We must lift each other with kindness rather than derision; behavior is more important than words, and you will never convince anyone of anything by battering at their beliefs. Lead by example and do not be goaded into a fight (do not imagine the enemy does not know what they are doing – they know full well their strategy for stripping your credibility). Education and exposure are the keys but they must be presented with kindness and relate-ability if they are to be considered at all.

VIBES IS WHAT: You will need to pay close attention to your gut instincts; those feelings cannot lie to you so trust the vibes you get and act accordingly.

04/21/19 Sunday: What’s next?

For those who celebrate, HAPPY EASTER!

For the rest of us, I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely Spring Sunday!

As we enjoy the lovely day, let’s keep a thought to planning the upcoming week:

  1. What will the new week bring? (This week: Twelve of Air – Authority)

Plan to question everything this week – no matter what authority the source is meant to possess – presume nothing,  and beware misrepresentation. Remember, a snake wearing bunny ears may be cute but it is still a snake! 

REMINDER: Do NOT fall into the trap of “It’s not my first rodeo.” Much like the rodeo itself, predictability is limited when you are dealing with the free will of others – do not presume you know either the pathway or the outcome just because you have been there before. Things can change – and usually do – and you may not have been consulted. This is a very “Buyer beware!” energy this week – be humble enough to deal with it accordingly.

04/20/19 Saturday: Take it & Leave it!

((Dreams of Gaia, Ravynne Phelan))

Happy Saturday, All.

I hope this finds you happy, healthy and peaceful no matter what you may be doing (or not doing) today.

As we continue to soak up the energy of yesterday’s Super Moon (it was a Pink Moon in Libra – sex and sensuality distracts under this energy – it is Spring after all!), we should take some time to recharge as well as review how things are going in our lives. It might be a good time to make some changes:

  1. What to keep? (This week: Twelve of Air – Knowledge)
  2. What to kick? (This week: Four of Water –  Perfectionism).

We have a great message here; keep our own counsel and give yourself a break.

The Scribe (XII Air) pursues knowledge and keeps records, and knows how to keep a secret – particularly his own. This is a good time to keep our own counsel as we continue to pursue our plans as we see fit. Remember, if you want the opinion of others, you can certainly ask for it at any time but then, you are stuck knowing it. No armchair quarterbacks are needed at this time.

Four of Water tends to lead us on a pursuit of perfectionism, sucking all joy and appreciation out of everything around us. To this we say a hearty, “Gracious offer, thank you. No!” and send it on its merry way.

APRIL 2019 PINK FULL MOON: Happiness & Gratitude

img_4323.jpg

((Dreams of Gaia Tarot, Ravynne Phelan))

The Full Moon is the perfect time to look up in gratitude for the many blessings of our lives, and the happiness we share. This Pink Full Moon is often full of antsy energy as the sap is rising all around us with the Spring season of renewal, joy, and sex (not necessarily in that order). Once again, we ask ourselves, 

  1. Where is my happiness? (This week: Nine of Water – Illumination)
  2. Where is my gratitude? (This week: Ten of Earth – Fulfillment)

This two part message is simple and completely in line with this Full Moon; we find happiness in seeing (all three eyes engaged), and we are grateful for the fulfillment we gain moving in the grace and wisdom of Goddess Selene, under her amazing light. 

DO NOT WASTE THIS BEAUTIFUL ENERGY OF AWARENESS AND BEAUTY!

04/18/19 Thursday: Set sail!

((Dreams of Gaia Tarot, Ravynne Phelan))

I hope all is well as we wrap up the work week, headed into the weekend. This is a good time to ask ourselves two important questions:

  1. Where are we going? (This week: King of Water)
  2. What is in the way? (This week: Three of Water)

We are seeking safe harbor this week; follow your own intuition on this – vibes never lie – and you will find what you seek. CAUTION: Do not burden your travels with expectations; you have enough to handle without also forecasting the outcome.

The watery message here is appropriate to the significant Pink Full Moon we are expecting on Friday morning (6:14 AM CST); let this information wash over you and take it to heart – this is the right time to seek the safety and comfort of your haven as the sap is rising all around you. 

REMINDER: It is okay to drop your anchor from time to time but do not drop your roots – you are meant to rest so you may move forward.

04/17/19 Wednesday: Speak your truth!

IMG_4312

((Dreams of Gaia Tarot, Ravynne Phelan))

WELCOME TO THE MIDWEEK POINT!

Communication is the key to Wednesday; today is the day to speak your truth!

  1. Communicate what? (This week: Integrity)
  2. Communicate how? (This week: Four of Air)

This week, we walk our talk with long, sure-footed strides, shoulders back and heads held high! We have things to say, and people need to hear them. This is not the time to be distracted – be honest, be kind, be direct – and get your messages out!

CAUTION: This is not a license to bully anyone with your”truth.” I cannot tell you how many times I have heard “It’s the truth! I’m just being honest!” as cover for treating others badly. I cannot stress enough THIS IS NOT OKAY. Always ask yourself, is it honest, kind, and helpful? Proceed with caution.

04/16/19 Tuesday: Make a move!

((Dreams of Gaia Tarot, Ravynne Phelan)) 

Monday delivered the overall energy of this week as well as how best to consider it to our advantage. Today, we seek an appropriate action plan:

  1. Where is the action best applied? (This week: The Youth)
  2. What action is needed? (This week: Eight of Water)

Our Tuesday plan provides sound guidance: It is time to look at new pathways with a cautious eye. 

Do you find yourself in a rut? Perhaps you keep treading the same path expecting to see something different, only to be disappointed? Consider looking into different pathways and perspectives. Try a new route to work,  different shade of lipstick, organize your desk to the left – whatever appeals to you – because small changes can be effective building blocks towards bigger changes.

CAUTION: Change for the sake of change is not the same as progress. Question your motives as you make changes; are they positive? helpful? authentic? – if you cannot say yes to all three, ask yourself why you would want to make a change that was not positive, helpful, and authentic. Plot your course accordingly.

04/15/19 Monday: Focused and Flexible!

IMG_4295

((Dreams of Gaia Tarot, Ravynne Phelan))

HAPPY MONDAY, ALL!

I hope you found the weekend rejuvenating for the new week!

Yesterday, we looked at what the new  week would bring; today, we look at the energy of the week as well as how best to use it in our pursuits.

  1. Overall energy of the Magickal Week (This week: Queen of Fire 
  2. Do this! (This week: Seven of Water)
  3. Not that! (This week: Five of Earth)

We lead off with Queen of Fire; the time for confident focus in action is RIGHT NOW! If you have been hesitant to put yourself forward, or reticent in speaking up, KNOCK IT OFF! The world needs you in action as if you mean to set it on fire – and this is the time to light that match!

This energy is supported by Seven of Water: BE FLEXIBLE! You may be on fire but you do not need to burn everything down. REMINDER: “Flexible” is absolutely NOT a code word for wishy-washy or pushover. The ability to go with the flow is a powerful tool of strength, not weakness.

Another thing “flexible” is not? It’s not the easy way out. There will be no short-cuts this week. Five of Earth is here to warn us of this folly; the path of least resistance is not necessarily the same thing as the best route. Some of the time, flexibility will find you making hard decisions, doing difficult things – but that is as it should be, don’t worry about it.

Remember, you already have everything you need. Time to shine!

04/14/19 Sunday: On the way.

IMG_4293

((Dreams of Gaia Tarot, Ravynne Phelan))

Sunday, Sunday – what help, that day?

I hope everyone is enjoying a peaceful, easy feeling this Sunday with delightfully seasonal weather, wherever you are (I am in Chicago, IL US, looking forward to Spring flowers!).

No matter how lovely the Sunday, you will inevitably begin to think about the fast approaching Monday, and the new week ahead. And with that, the reflection of Saturday leads directly into the forecast of Sunday:

  1. What will the new week bring? (This week: Six of Air (Swords)

Expect an epiphany this week; you have been working on several fronts, monitoring you personal progress to the best of your ability. This week will likely shed some unexpected light in unexpected places to show you what you need to see – good, bad, or indifferent. Of course, the beauty of this is always the opportunity to make changes that increase your own likelihood to progress…if you want it. Start the new week off right; roll up your sleeves, be brave, and maybe a little crazy.

This week belongs to you – make it whatever you want it to be!
