Extended Weekend Report 8-18 to 8-20-2017

The card for today, Saturday, and Sunday is the Hanged Man. This card is about going with the flow and changing your perspective.

This is a blessing. The Hanged Man on the card is not being punished — this character was put in this waiting position voluntarily. The suggestion is for you to do the same. Stop trying to take control of everything, at least for the time being. Allow events to unfold as they are meant to. Observe what happens. Look at the situation from a different angle.

It is interesting to note that on Wednesday, yesterday, and today I pulled Major Arcana cards. Major Arcana cards represent significant turning points in our lives. This makes sense in light of the solar eclipse coming up on Monday, which also is a major shift point.

With all of these influences in place, now is the time to rid yourself of negative attitudes and behaviors. If you can, meditate. In turn, you will experience the freedom and courage to manifest your wildest dreams.

But you don’t have to jump through hoops to get them. Abundance is yours simply by living your life and allowing the energy to flow through you. Remember that change is good and love is your superpower to help you achieve anything you desire.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Weekday Inspiration for 8-17-2017

Today we have the Strength card. Whether you realize it or not, you have an infinite supply of it. Tap into your strength. Calm your fears.  There is nothing you can’t conquer.

Inner strength is what we are talking about here. Even more specifically, we are talking about the power of love. Nothing is stronger than that. Love is the best way to deal with difficult outside influences. If you are experiencing challenges or upheavals in your life, as was suggested by yesterday’s card, then know that the Strength card is equally as influential.

Keep in mind that the most difficult challenges come from inside ourselves, not outside. So use the power of love — Self Love — to tame your raging, roaring emotions. With practice, your loving, peaceful self can learn to live in harmony with your raw emotions.


Weekday Inspiration for 8-16-2017

The card for today is the Tower. A major shakeup is in the making, if you’re not feeling it already. Something in your life is changing quickly and drastically. Lightening has struck the tower you thought could not be destroyed, but now it is falling apart around you. It can no longer contain you. For some of you, the thought of change is frightening. But quite often, change is necessary and good, as it probably is in this case. So don’t meet this change with fear and anxiety. Go with it. When all is said and done,  your life will be changed for the better.

Change  happens in the natural course of life. As much as we try to prevent it, we can’t. So the choice is ours: Either it can roll over us like a big boulder racing downhill or it can help us move along the path we are intended to go. Try to look on the bright side and yes, there is a bright side. The crumbling tower was actually your prison and now you are set free.

Weekday Inspiration for 8-15-2017

The card for today is the Knight of Pentacles. Slow and steady is the key for today, especially as it relates to practical matters. Be moderate in your spending and if you have to make any decisions, take the sensible approach. Don’t go out on a limb.

You might get some good news today regarding money, such as getting a raise, an approval for a loan, or an increase in your credit card limit. You could do well today on a job interview, especially if your prospective employer is a solid, conservative company.

Minimize stress by taking it one step at a time. Today we’re running a marathon, not sprints.

Weekday Inspiration for 8-14-2017

Good morning, all! Today’s card is the Five of Cups. You may be feeling emotionally unbalanced —  sad, insecure, disappointed, frustrated. You may feel that you have experienced a loss. Perhaps something in your life did not turn out the way you wanted it to. You may feel like this is the end of the road , that there is nothing you can do to make the situation better. You may be in despair. However, you must ask yourself these questions: Is it as bad as I’m making it out to be? Do I have other resources to fall back on?

The answer to the second question is yes. You have family and friends who would be happy to give you the emotional support you need. Even though you feel disappointment, this  is only a temporary setback. You can try again and very likely have better results. If nothing else, you are stronger than you think you are. You will be able to bounce back.

So while it’s ok to mourn your losses, don’t forget to count your blessings, as well. When it is all said and done, tap into what you have instead of what you don’t have. Mine your resources and pick up where you left off.

The card for today, Saturday, and Sunday is the Wheel of Fortune.  As the saying goes, the only thing constant is change. This weekend, major issues in your life could be resolved and/or a new chapter of your life could be set in motion. This is likely to be a good thing, so be excited!

Whatever the change is that comes your way, it is likely that the circumstances that caused this change to happen will not be in your direct control. However, you always have control over how you handle the situation. It helps to remember that life is cyclical,  with a series of ups and down. Roll with the punches. Sometimes change can be inconvenient and may force us to explore uncharted territory. But at the end of the day, every experience we have has the potential to increase our spiritual growth.

Good luck!

Weekday Inspiration for 8-10-2017

The card for today is the Emperor. Are you a supervisor, team captain, parent, or anyone else who is in a leadership position? You should be completely confident in your authority today. Yesterday’s card had a similar message about  leadership but today’s card is the same concept on steroids. So while I warned against micromanaging yesterday, today I’m saying more intense supervision is in order. If there is any warning, it is to make sure that you treat others with respect. Also, while this energy encourages you to let your mind overrule your heart, the heart shouldn’t disappear.  Exert your will with love.

If you are not the one in authority, this card could also represent your boss, work colleague, or parent. You may find that this person is a little overbearing. But at the end of the day, what they are telling you to do is probably for your greatest good.

Anything that requires discipline may be easier to accomplish today. So if you need to concentrate, meditate, or study, today is ideal for those activities.

Weekday Inspiration for 8-9-2017

Today’s card is the King of Wands. Your creative energy  is at its peak. In the career arena, you are at the top of your game, plus you have the charisma to lead others to do their best, as well. You are pushing forward with projects around the house. You are brimming with confidence. Remember to not push yourself too hard. Ideas take time to develop, so don’t get frustrated if everything is not done in one day.

Your leadership abilities are on display. However, don’t be too bossy, even if you are the boss. The best way to lead is to play into other people’s strengths, not beat them over the head with your authority. Take the lead but don’t micromanage. Work can be fun, you know!

Today you can be an inspiration. But maybe someone in your sphere will motivate and inspire you. Teaming up with that person can manifest some amazing results.

Weekday Inspiration for 8-8-2017

The card for today is the Ace of Cups. Oh happy day, everyone. This lovely card is all about a fresh new emotional stance, a day without sadness or fear, and a general feeling of having your soul cleansed in healing waters. We are living in a space where love can thrive.

The Ace of Cups is so appropriate following yesterday’s card, which indicated the need for meditation and rest. Today, we reap the benefits of  quieting our minds as we now awaken to a whole new positive outlook. This could bode well for new romance and it is definitely a good day to touch base with friends.

This also is a great day to tap into your intuition. Whatever your spiritual beliefs, know that you are supported by the Universe. The love that you feel? Make sure to give it back, and if you don’t feel the love, be the one to make someone’s day with a random act of kindness.

In astrology news, today is what’s known as the Lion’s Gate, which is acknowledged every August 8 (8-8).  There is a lot of information about it. I found one interesting article at Eternal Waking Beauties. Essentially, the Lion’s Gate is a portal, or window of opportunity, for us to raise our consciousness and evolve that mush more. The Ace of Cups energy can help us make that transformation with love.

Weekday Inspiration for 8-7-2017

Hi, All! Today’s card is the Four of Swords. This is a time to take a break from the daily grind. It is a great opportunity to quiet the many thoughts rolling around in your head and to create a bit of peace for yourself. Are you having the Monday blahs? Maybe today is the day to take a “mental health day” off from work, if you can, just to rest and do the things you enjoy doing. Whatever you do today, if possible, spend some time in quiet meditation, allowing and accepting the natural course of events to flow.

Those who are interested in astrology probably know that today is the day of the lunar eclipse in Aquarius. (Do a search to find out the exact timing of this event in your location). The lunar eclipse could trigger a major release of anything that does not serve your highest good; it could also be a time of sudden changes in you life. While some people may feel the effects of these astrological influences more strongly than others, it will certainly help everyone to come into this energy with with a calm quiet mind.
