Teach Me Tuesdays: Have You Been In Solitaire Confinement

“How do you build a house with playing cards? Start a club, win their hearts, give them tools and spades, and pay them with diamonds.” – Anonymous

You will have to follow the clues I have left behind via underlined hyperlink text today to discern if there are hidden esoteric elements weaved carefully in much of what may be presented to us within our constant absorption of monomyths. We’re all guilty of succumbing to the past time of finding ourselves enthralled with heroic journeys.

I’m not sure if I’ll be assigned as a juror, but if I am I suspect having a bit less free time to write and that there may be a mini hiatus. I can only manage so much in each 24 hour day with my many obligations.

🎲🎬📺🎮🎱

I am trying to ensure the latter part of my week is vacant for what has to be accomplished between jury duty as well as my part time cosmetology gig. So I have tried to fit in some compositions for this week before it gets a bit more chaotic with some unfinished chores I need to cross of on my list. While I’m generally not a Wiki fan I have resorted to utilizing one for some understanding and postulating.

For as much as I stopped binge watching Netflix and/or tell-a-lie-vision this week mom and I became consumed with Alice in Borderland. I get it because for me Alice in Wonderland has always been a favorite so much so that I also fell in love with CLAMP’s Miyuki-chan and American McGee’s Alice.

I am slightly frustrated if not dismayed to acknowledge I probably will be anxiously awaiting a Season 2 of Alice in Borderland. I do enjoy analyzing this story’s psychological twists/turns. Old habits I guess die hard when something catches our mind’s eye.

It is interesting that in tarot divination the suit of Hearts is the suit of Cups with Diamonds as Pentacles. Yet in this series we see something else being depicted (spoilers)!

But this morning I decided I wanted to divine a message with my charms. You can see the results below as well as some post rain garden updates. A little fun when we think of Alice who so desperately wanted to be Queen as well as enter the garden at the beginning of her own journey!

I actually have a Japanese costume (click for an image of the dress) that I have worn only twice themed after the Heart and Diamond card guards. It is packed away for whenever I decide to wear it again alongside another dress of a similar fashion style which is more gothic being navy blue almost black and white.

The dress I own was purchased in my late twenties from overseas for a pretty penny with import fees. It was custom made to my own measurements. Watching this series has made me reconsider if I would enjoy watching Squid Game or not. I am at present still unsure, but it  has been moved into the watch list.

Today the charms I have pulled are the passport, compass, and the solar system. We should take notice that our compass points East! I am not going to decode the entire message because I would like for my blog readers to work on finding answers as well.

“What playing cards are the best dancers? The King and Queen of Clubs.” – Anonymous

If these charms look familiar it is because they have turned up in previous divination blog posts before.

Passport: This document is often issued by a competent civil authority who grants permission to the individual named therein to travel in or out of a country as well as authenticating his/her right to protection while abroad.

We find that early use of the passport often indicated the right to leave one’s country. Therefore receiving a passport or getting it stamped represents approval.

Perhaps you will soon order or request something from an authority figure. Could a discussion with a boss where you are asking for some vacation time or even a pay raise and need approval be on the horizon?

The passport can signify receiving the green light to go ahead with your plans. If you are applying for a passport or visa this symbolizes a sign that you might be working towards an important interview or relocation request which will require you to go through an important process which can completely transform your life in the near future.

You are going to be traveling soon due to a job or other personal purposes. A new passport reflects new beginning chapters in your life. You will embark on completely new adventures with no past baggage or history. Before you lies a time where you will no longer let the past events drag you down from living the life you desire most.

Your passport photograph suggests that you will soon focus on wanderlust. You are signing up and committing to something and should consider doing it the earlier the better. A passport also indicates that you will soon have to prove your experience or knowledge. Be ready to share your abilities with others as this will open up new doors for you.

Passport/Visa and Tickets to?:

Compass: Can you locate your “true north” which symbolizes the moral compass? This your personal GPS guidance/navigation system meant to assist you in traversing over troubled seas and the unfamiliar paths you have taken or will take. As established this compass is pointing East. The below links and PDF may help you out.

Discerning the Compass’ Messages:

Solar System: The pursuit of studying space through astrology/astronomy or any number of other occult pursuits may be represented here. By knowing or learning your natal chart as well as adventuring into speculative arenas such as thought experiments one might begin to know themselves or gain further insights into the world which surrounds them.

Suggestions could include visiting a planetarium, purchasing a telescope, going camping to avoid city lights which obscure the constellations from view, and/or developing further study into esoterics, astrophysics, and so forth.

Are you trying to outrun Death or live in the moment? Or are we on the path of Nun? What propels you forward; fear (FOMO), love, or adrenaline?

Death’s connection with Scorpio would be my Western/Tropical 8th House of what our relationships will bring to us and how we can get the most out of them. Its natural ruling planet Saturn which stands for equality and justice teaches that the 8th House stands for equal opportunity. It places sex, death, and rebirth on the same playing field. Death and rebirth are a part of life.

Failed relationships lead to new ones, career changes, and a new haircut all indicate this aspect of rebirth/regeneration. It is here that we transform our insecurities into strengths. The change that we experience through this house drives us to look deeper into the hidden aspects of our self and explore life.

Shared resources such as inheritance, insurance, taxes, and alimony all fall under the realm of the 8th House. This house addresses financial and physical support as well as emotional and spiritual support. Yet in mundane spheres the 8th House can represent the debts, losses of battles, import/export, and death rate of a country.

However, in Vedic/Sidereal Scorpio would be my 2nd House of speech representing one’s capacity for verbal expression. Here one can receive acclaim in the fields of communication either verbal or written. While one may learn many languages the 2nd House also speaks to immediate family, wealth profile, and the affluence of one’s childhood depicting our virtues/vices.

If we were to observe this in mundane spheres the 2nd House can represent the wealth of a nation by indicating their financial welfare or economic matters.

May your Tuesday be triumphant! 🏆🎯

Well despite thinking the beans were dead and attempting to compost we can safely assess that more purple, green, and yellow beans are on the way. Bumper crop in the making.
The non triple digit weather and rain in Texas has meant the crepe myrtle is flowering a second time as well.
If the garlic chives get any larger I fear they make break the above ground bed. The honey bees are still actively at work!
If anyone can help identify the above weed I’d be grateful to them. It has some seed pods and white/yellow flowers. I’m not sure what this is growing alongside my beans.
Our zinnias have so many blossoms about to open that it’s overwhelming!

PS: I managed to carefully remove the two dresses from my closet where they remain in perfect condition and snag a photo of them. As seen below for the curious at heart as to what I’m describing in the costuming that I acquired in my twenties from importing overseas fashion for what was hundreds of dollars to be custom made is two dresses I’ve worn maybe once or twice only in my lifetime.

Why? I don’t really have anything that I attend anymore for which I would don this attire. Additionally at the cost they were I’m dreadfully trying to ensure they do not get damaged in any way whatsoever. Therefore when I have worn either dress I’m exceptionally OCD for fear of getting anything on them or seeing anything get ripped/torn. I put too much value upon them!

The Alice in Wonderland Hearts and Diamonds card guard was worn with stockings that had the entire suits on my legs including the Spades as well as the Clubs. It was worn for Halloween circa age 29 when I graduated beauty school for Halloween to my place of employment where no one could comprehend who I was meant to even be. Everyone was utterly baffled by what my costuming even signified guessing the theme/character wrong!

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: Looking for a Way Through the Darkness to Return to the Light

“Whatever your thoughts may be, if you don’t say them, none of it will be acknowledged by others.” – Tomoyo Daidouji

Sometimes it’s simply best to take a well deserved break. Sometimes one learns they just have lost the will to continue certain projects forward. I have seen this happen to others even on Kickstarter and Patreon. The underlined hyperlink text will provide enough Wisdom (Chokmah) for you to get the message I have stuffed in the bottle!

📝🍾🏝️

I’m considering a hiatus which I’m not sure how long this would be for from blogging. I’m battling a personal period of depression that has been on/off plaguing me for one and a half to two months. I had hoped that the positivity I originally was publishing would help, but it’s really not. The last two years have taken a lot of my energy psychologically which has provided me also with a lot of valuable education, but being online is detrimental in fact to my well being overall. The time I spent disconnected from social media outlets to reconnect to nature and life free of technocracy was the actual healthiest I ever was emotionally, mentally, physically, and psychologically whereas interconnectivity through a digital age actually for me personally I’ve been learning is the most anxiety/sadness promoting I’ve ever known.

Living life this way has not provided me with any of the benefits it did during the late 90s/early 2000s when I met genuine people with which I could network and form truly healthy bonds/friendships. Much of this was learned when I abandoned my aesthetics business because I freed myself from Facebook as well as blogging. It was the most liberating act of my life to remove myself from online presence, to stop being trapped in competition with others, or to disallow harassment by unneeded/unwanted solicitations. There is a true beauty to be found when one adopts a simple life via meeting people face to face not over a computer screen or “smart” device. The same holds true when you connect in person with nature or animals.

I’m an entirely different generation than many who willingly accept the technocratic societies they advocate for having been born in 1979 therefore our ideologies are at an impasse. I don’t like being plugged into a virtual reality Matrix, maya, or illusion as I am learning I find it unhealthy. So there are over 100 blog entries here. My business has had barely any customers and had zero support in donations with only 20 followers. Podcasts are not going to be a goal I will be reaching anytime soon, and it’s time I’m honest with myself that this is a failure so that I can move on with my life goals.

It’s time I put my well being ahead of a failed entrepreneurship and to follow my dreams which I don’t desire those ambitions to include toxic social media platforms as I already discovered on both Facebook and Twitter for the truth is they have devolved. I’m fed up with the world wide web at large despite my regular usage of VPN, cache/cookie clearings, and alternative search engine platforms. If something changes, and I find the motivation to ever return then so be it. For now I have to admit that I’m defeated by rain clouds and have to step away by removal of unhealthy habits or energy vampires as I don’t desire to continue in nor wish to keep butting heads with this.

I’ve even had people come here who have webhosts/websites that carry viruses/malware. I don’t find this time period to be “smart” at all. I find it to be one of ignorance and a new form of Kali Yuga where people are losing their groundedness in the 3D by looking outside of themselves for answers through relying on quick fixes in a form of turn on, tune in, and drop out that is simply a modern resurgence of using technology the same way the Rolling Stones song spoke of; Mother’s Little Helper.

Addictions in humanity are only going to cease when we all do our part to stop perpetuating them! Humanity’s dis-ease is within them not outside of them and until they do the inner work they’ll remain sick. No amount of pharmaceuticals will stop illnesses brought through improper education or the adoption of improper lifestyle practices picked up through generational abuses done individually and collectively. I don’t have to invest in what I don’t wish to support when I can re-direct my money, time, and energy elsewhere.

Below is today’s tarot reading! I wish everyone the absolute best. If you desire to reach out to me use my business email. If anyone does choose to try to help me find motivation you can support me with an astrology report purchase or donation. Otherwise this is where I may begin to cut my losses. I’m not entirely sure about the domain. I paid for 3 years at a reasonable cost through my webhost. I’ll be addressing this and making considerations as this also complicates if I will be letting my DBA lapse to simply shutter down fully as a business owner online. I actually took up Reiki Master certification for distance healing purposes during what was happening over the last two years, but nothing whatsoever has come from this except self growth. I know “me” better now, and that is what I’m most proud of and will be taking with me now.

I find blogging under a depressed mental state is presently pointless to continue spending my time/energy pursuing as I have done so far with minimal return on investment. The technocratic world does not repair my consciousness; it’s impairing it to such an extent I need to pull the plug. People suffer from fallacy and delusion as this “new” you’re creating or manifesting has not, is not, and does not simplify my existence. I don’t even enjoy television anymore. I’ve literally reached milestones I never thought possible in perspective of habits I choose to break.

I don’t like meeting people, places, or animals/plants through soulless cold machines. I like being able to meet face to face or to actually physically connect instead of fake/superficiality. Virtual is not genuine nor tangible; in fact virtual is a very poor substitution for that which is real and true in life. Quite honestly I want to spend my time during my evenings elsewhere, and I wanted to actually earn/benefit from this endeavor not put 110% in to feel unappreciated for it. Maybe I just don’t know why I attempted this now.

I pulled the following Sakura Card, letters, and charms while meditating with my Carnelian Sacral Chakra crystal which explains a lot I believe. Carnelian boosts courage as well as self expression sometimes termed the crystal of an artist as it assists one in feeling creatively confident in exploring their talents. The stabilizing influence of this crystal is helpful when one suffers overwork or over extension of themselves by helping them with concentration, protecting them from feelings of envy, and supporting the heart/circulatory system. Those suffering from low self esteem find Carnelian helps build faith in one’s inner self through art, music, and writing. The strong connection Carnelian has to our physical selves makes it paradoxically beneficial to astral travel by helping one stay grounded.

This protective crystal placed near any windowsill guards one from lightning strikes and minimizes major life transitions. Ancient Egyptians carved scarabs out of Carnelian believing it would work as a charm to increase vitality while protecting both the living and the dead.

The Through: Something in your life is at completion and needs to be let go of for one to really experience a breakthrough which may be difficult and may have repercussions which ripple out elsewhere. This card when drawn indicates a big change. Holding on to old or negative habits/lifestyles through fear of change promotes the reluctance to put effort into that which could only benefit one’s self in the long run. Why stick with anything which is not rewarding?

This card numerology indicates the vibration of 49/4 which in Chaldean numerology speaks to the Vedic concept of Rahu making one knowledgeable with an excellent grasp of self expression. It indicates the markings of an extrovert who possesses strength and courage. In Western astrology this number speaks to the energy of Virgo implying one will feel best when their surroundings are pleasant and structured. Those who see 49/4 should be aware that this is the number of a person with excellent healing abilities who embodies leadership qualities. It appeals to people who love animals and who can assess best when it is time to break with outmoded traditions finding new ways to transform.

The Owl: Owls play the role of protector offering the gifts of discernment between good/bad as well as a capability to feel out another’s intentions thereby knowing when to leave situations/people who are manipulators or toxic. Owls quickly unmask their opponents. They signify dramatic life change through spiritual death. When owl shows up you will know who your true friends are and you will crack through the facade of others seeing beyond the obvious. Anytime an owl appears it tells you to scrutinize your relationships thoroughly before committing yourself. Entanglments with those who have bad intentions are ill advised. Listen to your inner being and remove that which is undesirable.

The Anchor: An anchor is used to secure an object to a base of stability and security. The hooks/flukes grab the seabed holding boats in place. An anchor symbolizes safety and hope, however, also depicts honor to Neptune as God of the Sea. The anchor has specific parts which hold meaning. For example, the cross within the anchor represents the unity of spirit and matter while the flukes represent the feminine womb. The two flukes represent love between two people who have served to keep one another level headed. This charm represents resilience, overcoming adversity, and reminds one of their roots/origins.

Letters: We have the following letters which I’ve used to make words from. P, B, O, X, A, Y, Z, H, K, and G

Hazy (grey, ashen, dusty, and obscure/not transparent)

Zap (electric shock or sounds made by released energy)

Hoax (to deceive someone through malice)

Oak

Koph (another form of Qoph/Qof)

Box

Kaph (another form of Kaf/Khaf)

Boy

Ahoy (warning of something approaching/impending)

Yoga (any Hindu/Buddhist discipline aimed at training the consciousness for a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquillity)

Hag (Crone)

If you’re looking for more information on these topics I suggest you look at the following links:

I am closing today by looking towards the Arabic Lot of Vocation/Status following the formula of Midheaven plus Moon minus Sun. This gives me 11th House Leo 23° which is ruled by Aquarius. This house of friendship is how one communicates their inner personality with the outer Universe. It represents the way God/Goddess speaks to us thus it is a representation of our purpose for existence.

Vocation/Status Arabic Lot

LEO 23

An old man cutting mistletoe off an oak tree with a golden knife.

Spectacular attainment. Peak capacity. Everything prepared and ready. The consummation of lifetimes in the destiny drama of self mastery. Your tireless pursuit of perfection and gift of knowing what is asked are charged with collective power. Marking out a pathway which shall remain always. The Gods inspire; the hour is ripe. Demonstration is constant and the rhythm is the one where inner worlds are synchronized with. And the whole idea is to become selflessly yourself offered to the Goddess and emergent through time boldly, uninhibitedly, all there.

One sees things others aren’t aware of. The question is will people believe them when they share their insights? It’s best not to focus on this, but on the truth and wisdom behind what one is saying, its essence, rather than the details or physical veracity of it. The chart holder also needs to learn how to feed their insights to others gradually in a way they will accept. Sometimes it takes people awhile to see an open door and to move through it. Work with guardian angel Haiaiel and daimon Dantalion.

Daimon Dantalion is tied to the Nine of Cups, Venus, Pisces, and Honeysuckle. Dantalion helps one relate to others on a purely emotional level by teaching emotional intelligence heightening empathy for others. Often this daimon is associated with out of body experiences, astral projection, and remote etheric projection. The best use for Dantalion is healing broken communication in relationships.

This degree has the message of raising the level of perfection to accomplish more. The focus is to spend time participating in out of the ordinary pastimes. The affirmation is I defy convention. I am daring, bold, and adventurous.

Have a terrific Thursday! 💌

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: Purrfection is…

“I believe cats to be spirits come to Earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.” – Jules Verne

I awoke to a winter wonderland this morning! Hopefully the Texas power grid does not flake out this year because last year was bananas! Get your mittens and use the underlined hyperlink text for assistance. I grew up with Little Golden Books; one also had My Shadow.

🌡️❄️🧊🙀

I used my Citrine crystal during meditation which works as a manifesting stone, dispels anger giving optimism in its place, drives out night fears, and removes negative vibrations from the aura. Citrine dispels energies and transmutes them. Speaking of which I had a peculiar dream last night that involved a blue angel; ah, the wonders of the psyche. 😹  This dream involved a garden as well… When I went through my Reiki certification for distance healing they also explained healing animals, soil, plants, etc.

I also used my Crown chakra crystal today. We use this chakra to focus on intrapersonal skills and link to our central nervous system/cerebral cortex which deals with thought and consciousness.

Today we have been graced in Texas with snow and freezing rain so this card from my Cats Inspirational Oracle is a great match. This card asks us to seek others out by opening up and approaching them. We do not need to come on too strong and should adopt a gentle approach.

This Reading Appears to be a Bit Rich With Symbolism!

The Snowshoe cat is mellow and sweet tempered yet very social needing companionship. Devoted to their owners and friendly toward other animals they will be vocal, deceptively strong, and play in a gentle way.

The card is the numerology of 20/2. Known as “The Awakening” and “The Judgment” as seen in the tarot via a winged angel sounding a trumpet with a man, woman, and child seen rising from a tomb with their hands clasped in prayer. This number is a call to action and duty.

Three Keys: Keys open/close locks, doors, passageways, chambers, and even restricted sections in libraries. They are thought to hold great power beyond their purpose in any literal sense.

Holding on to a key particularly a skeleton or master key depicts freedom to do whatever one wants to do and to go wherever one wishes to go. Ancient walled cities used to present esteemed guests and residents with a symbolic key to the city to represent their unique freedom to roam the city entering/leaving it as they please.

The bearer of keys does not possess the highest authority rather they’re the ones entrusted with stewardship or wardenship over properties/kingdoms. This doesn’t mean that they’re not powerful as “Keeper of the Keys” is still an esteemed position across all traditions. Key bearing Ganesh is called on for wisdom and knowledge.

These keys are gold and there are three of them. This may also be the Stellar Gateway chakra.

Butterfly Fish: This fish corresponds with creativity, transformation, going with the flow, liberation, joy, health/long life, and fidelity. The charm I got at the craft store is turquoise which still falls under blue to represent the Throat chakra.

This charm represents mental depth and wisdom. It tells you that you hold infinite space for ideas and wonders while describing the extensive qualities of your subconscious and how it can manifest in your waking lives.

Butterfly fish are bringers of peace, healing, and cleansing teaching you that humans have the right to begin again. We are capable of recovering from both physical and emotional wounds. Channeling this energy enables you to purify your soul or the soul of others which will heal damaged spirits.

Despite being mundane butterfly fish are in fact a very powerful spirit animal. Being closely engaged with this charm proves that you can ascend to higher forms of knowledge and understanding. There’s a purpose in their actions which is worth looking at. For example, butterfly fish moving upward indicate that your soul has to evolve. This charm is calling for spiritual maturity and exploration. When butterfly fish are seen going downward this signifies the twisting of your spirit. This charm has something to do with your current predicaments in life.

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: Waning Crescent Moon January 2022

Today We Utilize Crystals, Sakura Cards, and Charms For Guidance!

Our Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day (29%) until the New Moon. During this part of our Moon cycle the Moon is getting closer to the Sun when viewed from Earth. The night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated.

The underlined hyperlink text offers some eye opening perspectives.

👁️🔓🔑🚪

I ran an astrology chart today for 11:11 AM where I live placing the Moon at Sagittarius 5° (this is my 2nd House personally and will be different for others based on their natal chart) which makes a T-Square with Jupiter in Pisces (this is my 5th House) and the True Node in Taurus (my 7th House). The guardian angel to work with is Vehuel and Reiyel.

Perspective can be one-sided. The owl up in the tree can swivel its head to see all around while also seeing very well at night; in the darkness. While up in this tree perched high one is still deeply rooted in the Earth. This degree commands a panoramic view of life. The owl is traditionally associated with wisdom (Chokmah/Athena or Minerva) so you can expect a philosophic nature to arise.

It is worth noting that לַיִל translates into night, midnight, nocturnal, and tonight. Often associated in Abrahamic faiths or occultism with Lilith the screech owl concept is a metaphysical reference to the time between nightfall and daybreak.

Night represents human understanding in which man’s thought works long and hard. Midnight signifies metaphysically the darkened negative state of one’s consciousness. Day and night in the Bible is a symbolic designation of the degrees of unfoldment of consciousness whereby night is ignorance while day is understanding.

Ironic is the fact that metaphysically lily is a symbol of pure thought. The Eastern occultism associates white with any brilliant color thus different colors in their highest sense speak to spiritual qualities which are all metaphor for true spiritual light and purity. Ironically my Minerva is in my 3rd House Capricorn 10°; I’ve charted Athena and Lilith recently. It requires one to have a special skill set to hover long enough to be able to feed from anyone’s extended hand. This albatross is a graceful soaring bird when in flight yet awkward when on land. Being nurtured by the hand of another is a wonderful gift and to receive nurturance implies that one also give in nurturing ways as circumstance allows. The guardian angel to work with is Mebahiah and and Mehiel.

Screech owls stay with us as previously mentioned in blog posts.

This T-Square exists between Fixed and Mutable signs. The Moon placed in this position is largely psychic when it comes to business and financial management. It gives off an intrinsic ability to pick up algorithms or flashes of insight when it comes to numbers/money. Life tends to be characterized by sudden fluctuations or reversals of fortune. A possible lack of stability in early childhood may cause them to cling onto their valuables out of fear that if they have nothing they too will become nothing.

Jupiter in this current placement signifies a creative and idealistic dreamer exploring their world via their imagination. Artistic activities like drawing or acting are what they are likely to most enjoy doing in their spare time. Their travels and life experiences allow them to absorb a lot of feelings and abstract impressions that might be translated into their unique artistic medium. They tend to practice kindness with a spirit of tolerance towards others in a playful manner.

True Node asks us to find the proper balance between self and other. If you are wondering how to begin your journey of putting others first know that this begins with developing the habit of detaching from yourself while recognizing the egotistical ways of your past (via previous lifetimes/childhood). You will soon learn to reap the rewards of focusing your energy on someone other than yourself. As you take the emphasis off of you and put it on the other you will begin to see the habits of kindness and understanding can develop naturally. These behaviors will help you formulate appropriate goals for all of your relationships. A person may be torn between involvement at any cost and preservation of his/her highly comfortable image of self as a good person.

Fixed signs have a propensity towards the traits of arrogance, resoluteness, and becoming uncompromising. They are so ambitious that they continue working until they reach their goals. Because Fixed signs are resistant to change the Fixed T-square often gets stuck in certain situations. Those with this aspect pattern stick like glue to whatever gives them security. If energy is used efficiently then they could apply it to create something constant and reliable in their life.

Those with Mutable signs always feel the need to disperse their energy. They are influenced by diverse concepts and constantly evolving. Mutable signs enjoy collecting knowledge and passing this onto others. The Mutable T-square can be active as it is all about balancing multiple skills.

The crystals used during this meditation and reading are Selenite and Green Aventurine. Selenite gets its name from its connection with the Moon Goddess Selene. It is thus associated with her and harnesses the white glow of the Moon. On the physical level, Selenite can assist in keeping one youthful as well as rejuvenated. The crystal’s properties are connected to the female reproductive organs, the lymphatic system, and the white blood cells. Selenite is used to heal properties of the spine, skin, and nails.

People who suffer from insomnia, night terrors, sleep paralysis, or nightmares believe that they sleep better when they place a Selenite beneath their pillow or near their bed. Selenite healing is slow at first working by unburdening one allowing them to think crystal clear thoughts. This assists one in becoming objective and aware of their surroundings. This allows one to develop good judgement and healthy insight so that they can work carefully with their soul to make better decisions.

Selenite does not only help one communicate with the Divine realms, but it’s also used for past life regression, the awakening of psychic abilities, releasing all kinds of negative entities, and helping the movement of one into all states of consciousness. This crystal closely works with the higher chakras via the Crown chakra and the Third Eye chakra to keep the channels of spiritual guidance open and Divine energy flowing into and through you.

Heart Chakra via Mandala Coloring App

Green Aventurine is essential for one who is keen to attract a little more of Lady Luck’s energy into their world. This talisman of good fortune soothes the soul, regulates energy, and keeps the heart open and ready to receive. Green Aventurine is a heart healer activating feelings of love, compassion, gratitude, and inner peace.

Primarily the stone of prosperity Green Aventurine will not simply attract abundance into your life, but will inspire you to foster desirable qualities where you will do the inner work that is required to embody your best self. You are encouraged to embody strong and trustworthy leadership qualities in your decision making process while remaining resilient. This crystal soothes professional performance anxiety while stimulating mental clarity, creativity, and compassion. Use this crystal to promote healthy function of the thymus gland while also supporting the nervous system. Holistic healthcare professionals believe this aids in the balancing of blood pressure and the lowering of cholesterol.

Whether you are working with a lower flow of energy in your Heart chakra or a blocked one you can properly harmonize this chakra with this crystal.

What To Accept:

The Move teaches that it is now a good time to move on. This does not ask for anything major only that you put some distance between yourself and where you are now. If something always appears to be out of reach this may imply that you have to do something to move after what you desire. The Divine may be trying to get you to move onto the path you should be on in a spiritual sense. Stagnation is going to lead to boredom in time. I am paying attention to the rainbow colors as well!

Chaldean numerology of 45/9 is a favorable number which will help you enjoy good power and authority throughout your lifetime without any hiccups. Number 9 individuals can be highly helpful and compassionate in life.

What To Learn:

The treble clef represents musical inclinations or a love for music. The treble clef is placed on every music line to indicate the notes a singer is to sing or a musician is to play. Surround yourself with music.

The solar system is all about astrology/astronomy or various forms of  occult pursuits. This suggests that it would be wise to know or learn your natal chart. You may be interested in astrophysics or you could visit a planetarium.

What To Forgive:

The Sand indicates that there may be a feeling of not being able to really move forward which you are or have recently experienced. It shows that progress is hard going and quite slow as well as energy zapping at the same time. Sometimes all you can do is just keep plodding along pacing yourself so as not to drain yourself of vital energy by trying to accomplish too much.

This suggests things have been made unnecessarily difficult. Don’t stand still for too long otherwise you may experience a sinking feeling! By procrastinating you may find that you have to work harder to actually get the momentum going again. Don’t dig that hole for yourself. If someone else is digging it with you in mind do what is needed to avoid becoming trapped by their negative energies.

Chaldean numerology of 40/4 doesn’t hold great merits. There are many times in life where you may feel lonely or isolated. However, Number 4 individuals are the most disciplined people.

I am questioning with The Sand also the importance of our soil particularly with my previous study into fluoroquinolones. The issue with my health this month as well as my mom’s raises new questions as you saw in my blog posts and research having been on Cipro two consecutive times and my ligament surgery or my mom’s negative side effects to Levaquin.

When I did my Krampus blog post I neglected to realize another connection!

The links to scientific studies about antibiotic use has made me very concerned about areas some are not exploring or addressing with Spaceship Earth.

Happy Thursday! Best wishes for your well being! ⚡🔨📅

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: Sakura Cards With Letters and Charm

“I know our magic is hidden in these forms and he can’t sense a thing. But a FAIRY?! How would YOU like to be called a fairy?!” – Spinel Sun

The Sakura Cards were a birthday gift I received from family. They originate from the CLAMP manga/anime known as Card Captor Sakura. What many may not know is this anime is based on the tarot.

The story features the use of long rectangular cards originally known as Clow Cards which in no direct form are based on any traditional tarot cards. Each card is a representation of a person, animal, or item that holds within it a magical element or concept meant to be unraveled. For example, a wizard who represents time.

While most tarot cards have been known for their use in divination systems Clow Cards are known for the monsters they summon, and you will see Sakura use them for fortune telling every now and again.

What Am I Feeling Right Now?

The Jump Card 30: A goal is approaching and you should focus your time and energy on new ideas.

Human charisma is akin to a video game power-up. You will become busy both publicly and privately yet will still be able to find enough time for adequate enjoyment of life.

Guard yourself against jealousy, violence, quarrels, and domestic disputes. You may need to apply a force of courage or boldness suddenly to certain situations.

30 reduces to 3. In Chaldean numerology this message can mean that you may not feel extremely lucky or deserving at this time, but consistent efforts will fetch you good results down the road so be patient. Your present “now” is neither lucky nor unlucky. The number 3 involves a great degree of creativity and an earnest willingness to face all the challenges of life.

How Can You Rise Above?

The Thunder Card 42: Good luck lies ahead as long as you don’t lose yourself.

You are being given an Emotional IQ test by the Universe to see if you can learn to control your explosive and intense emotions.

When you generate creative ideas express your personality without being triggered or sowing negativity. Ensure your actions are balanced between courage and rationality to bring you helpers because you will have more enemies if you are behaving via selfish intent!

42 reduces to number 6. In Chaldean numerology this message can mean you will get to enjoy a lot of love, support, and affection from others. Please remember people like to keep themselves busy with important and meaningful endeavors in life.

How Can I Release This Feeling?

The Windy Card 1: Move forward towards enrichment with anticipation.

This is an essential time for you to surrender to change and move forward with your chosen pursuits. You may receive significantly purposeful downloads at this time. Pay close attention to your surroundings and to any signs along the way especially any synchronicity. Once you have set your sight on your target begin working towards it at once.

Do something unique and try not to sound like an echo chamber by repeating verbatim what others say. Be creative. Don’t be capricious by constantly flip flopping in mood and behavior. Be mindful of what you say and ensure that it is logical and based on truth. Impulsivity and unpredictability are not attractive qualities.

In Chaldean numerology this message can mean that you are commanding and self reliant. Number 1 is considered to be an extremely powerful number.

Letters: M, S, W, R, U, J, I, Z, N, P, O, G

Here are the words I have found using these letters. Please note this could also be used to spell out names of people, places, or as initials as well. So take what resonates and leave the rest. I an not extending the list as like last time it is already pretty long.

Passport: A document issued by a competent civil authority granting permission to the person named to travel in or out of a country as well as authenticating his/her right to protection while abroad. In early use this often indicated the right to leave one’s country.

Receiving a passport or getting it stamped represents approval. It could symbolize that you will soon order or request something from an authority figure. This could be a discussion with a boss where you are asking for some vacation time or even a pay raise and need approval. The passport suggests that you will soon get the green light to go ahead with your plans.

If you are applying for a passport or visa this symbolizes a sign that you might be working towards an important interview or relocation request. This will require you to go through an important process which can completely transform your life in the near future. Thereby this indicates you are going to be traveling soon due to a job or other personal purposes.

A new passport reflects new beginning chapters in your life. You will embark on completely new adventures with no past baggage or history. This is a time where you will no longer let the past events drag you down from living the life you want.

Your passport photograph suggests that you will soon focus on travel arrangements. You are signing up and committing to something and should consider doing it the earlier the better.

This passport also indicates that you will soon have to prove your experience or knowledge. Be ready to share your abilities as this will open up new doors for you.

Here is a Smithsonian and Conde Nast article on the passport.

On December 4, 2021 there is a total solar eclipse. One of the last ones which I experienced over the USA left me sick after observing it on television. I developed the worst nausea and migraine which sent me to bed, but I am not really superstitious nor do I suffer fear of what happens in the heavens above.

Where I live this will occur at 11:29 PM CST on December 3, 2021. My interest is that this will fall in Sagittarius which somewhat speaks to the themes of endings, releasing what no longer works, and a search for meaning. This can imply breaking away from any habit, behavior, or tendency that you still hold onto so that you can try something radically different which will lead to new and exciting opportunities. If you have experienced upheaval, disappointment, instability, or a feeling of being emptied out around this area of your life remember what truly matters to you and allocate necessary space (time, energy, and resources) to who, what, when, and where fulfills you.

For where I live at 11:29 PM CST this crosses at Sagittarius 10 degrees. Both symbols are a bit similar below beginning with the Chandra Symbol.

SAGITTARIUS 10
A star turning many different colors.

Bedazzled by the lights, intoxicated with the display, amazed and stunned by the spectacle. You are your own audience, your own accompanist, your own shadow-catcher. Prone to excess in all things, in a release of spirits unending. Becoming roles, worlds, ways of presenting self. Taking karmic episodes of the past and replaying them in another variation. Given over to the senses, body-charged, chaotic, and commanding. Taking life through all its shifts and nuances with easy and spectacular capacity, you feel somewhat at the mercy of the shadow that comes back to haunt. Effortless grace and subtle burnout. For there is more than this, and it will not come unless this does consume itself, and makes way for the unknown as the only place to go when the excitement wears off.

The Kozminsky Symbol in contrast reads as:

10º Sagittarius: A large metallic ball reflecting various colors.

Denotes one of a high order of intellect. He/she is naturally scientific, and gains recognition and esteem. He/she will be enabled to throw much light on obscure subjects and complex problems, and will win respect for his/her labors. He/she is highly inspirational, and embraces some school of occultism or uncommon thought. It is a symbol of Growth.

The best description to be found is of one who will be invited to depart on journeys of adventure. To refuse is not an option as the opportunities presented will not go away rather they will continue to pursue you wherever you go until you surrender to the adventure. This mysterious calling is from the heart and the true self who yearns to be found.

When we find one thing which we have become fascinated by beholding it this allows us to see many different nuances within it. As we look at it it too looks back at us. If only we gave ourselves over to it while setting the intention that we wish to learn anything and everything from this experience we could in fact benefit from it!

This degree has in the Omega symbols listed two archangels (Daniel and Lehahiah) which may be helpful at this time. Heal using yellow sapphire crystal during this eclipse and realize the message for you is blessings and kindness make for an easier path to follow. Focus on fortunate opportunities that will lead toward an increase in money, fame, or promotion in your life. The affirmation is I invite abundance and prosperity into my life.

I used to use Crunchyroll a long time ago and then the app went haywire so I began relying more on Hulu for anime. Needless to say having stopped my binge watching of television which was in fact an addiction the closest I can find of this anime may be at the link below for anyone who wishes to enjoy it again.

Tarot of the Day Thursdays: Charms and Letters

What Symbolism Can You Find in This Image?

Today is 11/11 and while I am sure some people have no clue what that means I encourage you to do a search online. This also fell on a Thursday which is usually seen as a Jupiter day. For Americans we are celebrating Veterans Day as well so thanks to those who serve like my late maternal grandfather (WW II Pacific Ocean Theater) and my maternal uncle (Vietnam) did.

11/11 is an invitation to unity consciousness which begins within balancing all parts of our self. We live in a world made of duality in which we learn how to thrive. Once we accept divergent polarities by loving, forgiving, and growing we help collective Earth as well.

This is actually an interview done with my grandfather which I am putting here for today. Usually my mom and I go to visit him where his ashes were buried, and this year I have not gone since February 5th. The cemetery is actually located near a Buddhist temple which I took photos of in February as well. Visiting him is always difficult for me being that it is a military cemetery. On one hand I am to pay my respects, but on the other I am triggered by the amount of graves and the loss of life. So I usually have to prepare mentally and emotionally for the drive and experience because I end up angry and depressed by being there every time. Covid did not help  honestly when I went in February as there were many fresh graves I walked, saw, and photographed with my Canon Eos Rebel.

Here is what the Universe has sent us today!

The Key: This key has the word truth written upon it. We can look upon this a few different ways. One is subjective in that each of us should feel comfortable and be allowed to know or speak our truth. Another is to place a focus on maintaining honest relationships with ourselves and others. The final concept may relate to Maat and the Egyptian weighing of the heart against the feather of “truth” to avoid being consumed by the monster Ammit in the Book of the Dead seen as a record keeping of one’s good/bad deeds. Please remember that keys are used to lock and unlock doors which is a powerful symbol in its own right! This might be an allusion to Libra as the Scales in a round about way.

https://choosenaturesguide.wordpress.com/2018/10/30/maat-the-goddess-of-truth-and-balance/

The Pelican: A symbol of teamwork, self sacrifice, charity, humility, self indulgence/hoarding, and resourcefulness.

https://www.sonomabirding.com/pelican-symbolism/

The Dreamcatcher: A protective talisman for protection against nightmares and bad/negative dreams (this weeds out that which is unwanted and only allows in that which is for the best of intentions and a higher purpose). Guard your dreams (the phrase to keep your cards or plans close to your chest rather than discuss them with others).

https://www.journeytreehealing.com/post/the-symbolism-of-dreamcatchers

The Watering Can: This tool is often found in gardens for distribution of water or sometimes liquid fertilizers (the stream of water is broken up into droplets to avoid excessive pressure on the soil/delicate plants). Another thought is akin to a glass as your perspective in life. Is it half empty or half full; abundance vs poverty consciousness. Please remember abundance is not just your finances and pocket book as many do not realize true wealth is beyond just paying our bills. This might be an allusion to Aquarius as the Water Carrier in a round about way.

The Compass: Finding your “true north,” the moral compass, and guidance/navigation over troubled seas and the unfamiliar paths taken. It appears this compass is pointing West so maybe we should investigate this. The below links and PDF may help you out.

The Crown Chakra Crystal: The Crown chakra is located where royal people place their crowns. This is your connection to the Universe, the Infinite, and beyond our physical realm. This chakra focuses on self-knowledge while being linked with the central nervous system and cerebral cortex. This energy center is concerned with thought and consciousness.

When imbalanced we can become depressed, confused, and lonely. It displays as a disconnect with Source or God, we may lack any desire towards new knowledge or wisdom, and what is called the dark night of the soul. To fix this meditate on the color violet, try brain games or learn a new language, wear amethyst, practice Jnana yoga, and eat plant based or try a juice cleanse/fasting.

Zebra Jasper Crystal: Zebra Jasper will typically be white with black stripes like a zebra, but may also be found in color variations such as green, red, or brown with white. It is an opaque stone that ranges from rich to lighter shades of black and white stripes. This crystal holds the energy of balance by uniting the energies of the masculine and feminine. It also balances the chakras by combining the physical, intellectual, emotional, and aetheric bodies.

Zebra Jasper is an anti-apathy stone allowing you to be optimistic regardless of life’s stresses giving you more initiative to tackle your problems. This will encourage you to dare to dream while turning those dreams into a reality. As a grounding stone this crystal allows you to tune into Mother Earth and find joy in your surroundings. Zebra Jasper asks us to pay attention to any kidney/bladder problems while it improves skin, bones, and teeth as well as alleviates muscle spasms.

Zebra Jasper resonates with Number 11 and our Root chakra.

Affirmation: My energies are balanced and united.

Question to Ask Yourself: Do I feel that it is important to harmonize my masculine and feminine energies?

Letters: S, R, D, Z, P, R, M, U, O, H, J, O, G, and N

These could be initials for anyone’s names in your life or we can try to see if there is a message hidden or encoded via making words. So now comes the fun part. I am going to try to form any words I see. Let me know in the comments if you see any other words. This list is already pretty long actually!
