Gaian ~ 7 Air

Today is a day to focus and to do inner work. This is appropriate today. It's WAY to hot to venture outside so, I'm doing some sewing and trying to figure out what I can get and/or make for my kids (2) for their birthday this week. I'm also doing an online class on tapping (EFT) which I trust will clear out some old stale stuff!

Blessings,

I was playing around with my Prairie Tarot this afternoon and decided to draw two cards in the same positions as I drew earlier today.

Shop - two of staves.

From the book: Boldness; bravery. Personal power. You have everything you need for success. Time to plant! ...

Me - Emperor (which is the same as The Lord in DruidCraft!)

I'm liking what I'm seeing here!!! :)

Thank you Ceker! That's very beautiful, and very helpful! :)

Today I'm on a totally different tack. I was just offered the opportunity to purchase a permanent shop at the Carolina Renaissance Festival. I'm very excited, having been told that it generally takes years to get a shop at the big festivals!!! The shop is adorable, looks to be a great layout for me, and I think I can find a way to pay for it. I hope to drive down there to see it this week.

So ...

DruidCraft - The Lord

My first impression is that this man is very powerful, imposing, with perhaps a hint of warning.

Before thinking further about this card, I did what I usually do not. I looked at the meaning. It says "The structure needed for success. The Lord offers you success and accomplishment. You may be called upon to act responsibly. If you are in a position of leadership, act with clarity and integrity for the greater good."

Sounds promising, right? :D

So, back to my impressions of this man. He seems very direct. He will never falter from the truth. An eagle flies behind him: my spirit animal. That feels very promising. A sign, if you will, that this is a path of the soul. He sits on a stone throne, as solid a foundation as one would wish for. A permanent shop is a solid foundation. A clear, solid, basis for my business. In addition to the physical aspects, which are obvious, having a shop will focus my energies. My creative juices can all be focused in one area, one direction, something that truly helps me stay focused, enthusiastic, and centered.

I drew this card as The Shop. I decided to choose a second card for ME in the shop.

Ten of Cups!!!

This family is happy, fullfilled, centered. There is a table full of pots outside, perhaps representing my artwork/craft. A rainbow shines behind them. Follow the rainbow ... My niece goes to school in North Carolina, about three hours from the festival. She has already agreed that she'd enjoy working with me on the weekends, which brings family into this equation.

I feel very optimistic, and hope that I like the shop's setting (on a wooded lane), the neighbors, and the financials. I want this to work out well for me. And I want to do it. :)

ETA: I looked up the meaning in this deck for ten of cups: "This card is immensely auspicious. Dreams really can come true; you can be blessed with good fortune, success, and a warm, loving family. The happiness indicated is likely to signify both spiritual and emotional blessings."

Gaian ~ 17 Star

OK... so I got the Star. I'm supposed to be able "to relax into a time of calm, healing, and grace". Uh huh! That doesn't seem to be what my day is like. I feel like I've hit a brick wall and can't go any further. I've been trying to make a breakthrough in taking care of myself and eating better and today has been a failure. It appears I'm using the Shadow side of the card again today. When I try to make changes the not so subtle sabotage reaches out and bites me hard. Well, tomorrow will be another day and we will see if I can make any forward movement.

Blessings,
Collien~~~

GRYFFINSONG ~ I used the Gaian deck and the equivalent to the 2 of Swords is the 2 of Water, it may have your answer. To quote what it says is: "You have a caring, compassionate response to another. You choose to begin or continue a relationship based on a deep heart connection, as you recognize and honor the Divine in each other. This connection brings healing and joy. Namaste---God/dess in me bows to God/dess in you." The Shadow side states in part: "... Your challenge is to keep your connection with Divine love clear and open, even when other relationships are troubling."

I trust this helps your troubling thoughts about the situation. Blessings~~~

Druid Craft Tarot - Two of Swords

A situation has come up with a group of my friends. An ongoing "war" that's been in progress for about four or five years. I had done my best to stay out of it, but was pulled into it two days ago. I regret it.

This image feels like a punch in the gut. Like having to make choices about who to support. Like I cannot remain completely neutral anymore. I know too much. The woman is naked. Exposed. Vulnerable. No longer safely unaware of the details of the conflict. I stare at the enormous tree before me, that stands between the paths. I can sit on this stone in the center. I can stay like the gigantic tree ahead of me. But to move forward, I'd have to choose one path over the other.

Are there other options? Can one truly sit in stillness without making a choice? To do so seems to require that one stay blind, keep the blindfold on, and I do not want to live blind. But perhaps the analogy fails at this point, because when I am too open to what's going on in conflicts, I become paralyzed with sadness and depression.

Perhaps my way forward is to turn my back on those paths, and see what is behind the stone, behind my back.

I don't know what to do. And perhaps that is the most important message of all. Perhaps today is not a day to make any decisions. Perhaps today is a day to sit still. To blind myself to what's around me. To travel within and simply sit with my feelings about this.

There have been a lot of Pentacles coming up in my daily 3 card draws for about 10 days now. Tomorrow I'm participating in a local festival and will have a booth selling my Crafts of the Craft. We were talking last night about donating the money to the Wounded Warrior Project. Being a Veteran, I thought this is a good idea. Just to be sure I did a A Most Excellent and Sensible Spread, with moving parts, followed by the Difference Engine Spread. Sure enough, Wounded Warrior Project it is. Not only that but all my earnings from online readings during the month of June too.

Gaian ~ 3 Gardener

Today is a day of comfort and abundance. Well, I was definitely experiencing the negative affects of this card as I definitely had a day of abundance and it dealt with comfort, yet it wasn't the positive experience it could have been. I went for a walk with a friend and afterwards ran a couple of errands one of which was to the grocery store. I had gotten up late and hadn't had time to eat so I just grabbed some comfort (garbage) food and headed off. I didn't take any protein with me so when I had a sugar crisis, I bought comfort food... cookies and ice cream and all sorts of stuff that was less than healthy. Once I had started on the downward spiral I was off and running and couldn't seem to pull myself out of it. I think this was a reminder that the Mother is the healer and I needed to turn toward her for comfort and direction and I didn't. I needed to spend some time nurturing myself and my inner child and I didn't. Although I will say that I was able to make it through the day and learn something to use for the next time... remember to eat regularly and eat protein and vegetables and take care of myself.

Blessings,
Collien~~~

Gaian ~ 12 Tree

The Tree (Hanged Man) tells me it is time to release old patterns. This is good news! I trust I don't get in my own way or take back up the old patterns I release. I have just started a online tapping class on weight loss and body confidence and I was thinking that it is time to release old patterns and I get the confirmation from my draw... whoo hoo!

Gaian ~ Ace Water

Open your heart with love and wisdom and trust. Trusting others come pretty easy... trusting myself does not. I am setting out on a quest to more fully find myself and discover why I'm getting in my own way of being healthy and losing weight. I'm finding that self-care is at a *very* low ebb and it includes my physical body, the body of my affairs, as well as my home and grounds. Tomorrow I'm starting a 7 week Tapping class that concentrates on weight and body image issues. Since my card says that "I may be setting out on a pilgrimage or quest to find my own personal Holy Gail", I trust that it will assist me in my quest of learning how to take care of myself. Geesh... you'd think that self-care would be natural and easy!

Blessings,

Gaian ~ 2 Water

This card urges empathy and shared understanding with a partner or good friend. A connection with a friend will help me find balance, compromise, and connection. It reminds me that being a hermit isn't a good idea. Having another person or persons in my life will help keep me balanced and connected.

I need to trust in my secure foundations and husband my strength. The secure foundation is my sacred space... depending on that space will allow me to invest in myself and keep doing what I'm doing to secure my future remembering to be grateful for all that is in my life. What a great card for the summer equinox...

GRYFFINSONG ~ I trust I will get it done and if so, yes, I will share. I'm in the process of making the pattern and testing it before I do it for real. It's really exciting and intimidating!

Potentional. Innovative solutions. I'm charged with creative energy and can't wait to begin a new project. That is so true! I have two things that I'm *REALLY* excited about. I'm beginning a 7 week class in Tapping for weight loss and body confidence and I'm planning a purse for my daughter's birthday. The Tapping is really self-explanatory, but the purse needs some explanation. A few years back my daughter got a purse she really liked and when she washed it the colors faded and although it didn't hurt the purse physically, she didn't like it so much any more and asked me to create a new one for her. It was originally white with large black polka dots. I have been searching for just the right material and haven't been able to find it. I got the idea not to long ago to get a cream material and machine embroidery tiny German Shepherds on it (she raises shepherds). So, now is the time to start the project! Whoo Hoo!!! I trust the creative juices will keep flowing for the two weeks until her birthday!

Blessings,
Collien~~~

I'm on the right track... I've had my talents acknowledged and I'm feeling like I'm making headway. This is good to know today as I don't feel like I'm on any track let alone the right track. I have been spending more time sewing and finishing many of the UFOs (unfinished object/projects) that I started years ago. It is feeling good. I would say that I need to look at it more positively and celebrate the finished UFOs more... maybe I need to share the completion with my "community" to get the necessary kudos to continue doing what I'm doing. I don't seem to be congratulating myself enough! I'm just saying... "it's about time!" Maybe I need to change my attitude to continue using my talents... I think there is no maybe about it! I will say the design board that I put up during the home improvement was a great idea for me as whatever is on the board get done fairly quickly! That has helped with my UFOs! I do have good ideas and I am talented... Celebrate, Celebrate, dance to the music!!!

Gaian ~ 18 Moon

Changes that signal creativity, enhanced psychic powers and visions. Mental judgment may not be trustworthy but intuition will be accurate. In reading about the Moon in the Gaian book it said, "Do you know what the moon phase is?". And then went on to say that "the lunar cycle is a model for any life cycle... knowing your place in this cycle can help put your current issues in perspective." Interesting... I never thought of looking to the moon's cycles to help define how to deal with an issue. Today is into the 1st quarter a time for new growth and exertion of effort to move toward goals despite resistance. This is true of my life right now as I have just set up for myself a learning experience related to eating correctly. I'm struggling against many of my old programs and they are not wanting to let go. I trust that this 1st quarter will help me hold on regardless of the struggle.

Blessings,
Collien~~~

Kissa Tarot - 5 of coins

A cat sits on a road lined with coins, looking back at me. The moon shines ahead, and all is dark in the village. She seems to be saying, "what are you waiting for? Follow the moon." Ahead there is a crossroads. Perhaps we will know which way to turn when we get there. Or perhaps it doesn't matter. Either road is a good one, as long as we make it so. I, however, find myself wanting to follow the moon past the crossroads, sneaking between the houses and the trees, to the ocean beyond. The deep, blue ocean. Full of mystery, full of promise, full of life.

Thanks Roxann! That sounds exciting as well. :) I have a lot to think about.

Tarot of the Fool - Queen of Blades

Hah! This queen looks like she's sitting and perhaps sewing. Very confident and serene. Its difficult to be certain what she's doing, but the swirls of her work surround her, in the air and on the floor and in her lap. Her work is her life, and she is very good at it.She sits sprawled sideways, barefoot, comfortable. She looks like she may even be in medieval garb. Absorption, finesse, talent and persistence, have all helped her get here, to a place where her work is instinctive, innate, so much a part of her that they are one and the same. That her thoughts and feelings become her work, in an effortless process of communication and caring.

My dreams made visible ...

I had an interesting experience today that maybe ties into the hierophant. I was reading an atheist board (ironic since the hierophant is usually portrayed as a religious figure) and someone suggested a "low residency" college to one of the forum members. It struck my interest and I looked them up. I'm thinking of doing it ... of earning my master's degree. The program I'm interested in is described like this ...

"The Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts (MFAIA) is a self-directed learning community that fosters a climate of ethical, lifelong, creative inquiry. We encourage artists to ask complex questions and cultivate practices that celebrate imaginative and intellectual discovery. Ours is one of the only graduate arts programs in the world committed to the arts as transformational practice and artists as agents of personal and public action."

I'm really excited and scared about this possibility. And since education ties into the hierophant, I'm a little blown away at the timing.

Baroque Bohemian Cats - The Hierophant

I'm drawn to the keys in his hands. Very complex, and held in an "x" shape. Perhaps I'm at a crossroads, and the keys to my direction are in structure, or in others, or in knowledge that I already hold.

I almost always have trouble connecting with the Hierophant, so I will have to think about this awhile. Although, perhaps the issue is that I have trouble connecting with structure, with other's rules, and perhaps with knowledge that I have but do not like or feel comfortable with.

Perhaps that's the message. That there are things I have to do that I don't feel like doing.

Hmmm.

Thanks, ceker, that's wonderful feedback! I do actually feel very confident about my artwork. My lack of confidence comes in finding the right avenue to make money with it. I'm working on that, though, and have come home from the closing weekend of the ren faire feeling very inspired. I did a barter with a tarot reader. I normally don't let others read for me in person, for a variety of reasons. Partly because many readers have differing beliefs and ideas about tarot, which bring my skeptical side to bear, and that doesn't feel like a healthy or honoring way to be during a reading. This woman and I had talked several times, and I really felt connected. Turns out she hand painted her own deck, and is a very gentle soul. She gave me some very good insights, and I have a lot of journaling still to do with her reading for me.

Just now, I chose my Baroque Bohemian Cats first edition. Ironic, because I'd decided not to get my BBC (3rd edition) out of my suitcase. Rather, I decided to choose at random from my deck drawer. And it was the BBC 1st ed. I guess those cats really did want a chat tonight. :)

Temperance.

A beautiful tortoiseshell cat pours water from a silver cup into gold. I'm struck by the gold/silver cups and black/gold face. Stark contrasts, but balanced. Yin yang. On off. left brain right brain. Creativity and practicality. Exactly the things I'm trying to attain. I feel as if my creative side is mostly where I want it to be. I'd like more quiet time to gather the threads of my ideas and raise the bar on some of my work. Not that I need more technique, but that I'd like some of my work to reach deeper, have more depth, be more than "just" a pretty picture. Raise that up, AND raise the bar on profit/business side of things. The practical. The business. The advertising and marketing. Putting it out there so that others can see it, enjoy it, and hopefully decide to take it home and make it theirs.

This cat has wings, but she is standing still. I feel as if I am at a point where I am ready to spread my wings further, fly higher, take my business and my art to the next level. I feel, despite a disappointing faire, and lots of doubts, to be excited again. I feel renewed somehow, tonight, and eager to move on.

I feel happy. :)

Gaian ~ 5 Fire

I'm faced with a challenge today... I like being in charge. Although being in charge doesn't necessarily mean being the center of attention, I need to be careful that I don't put off people by being passively aggressive in order to get my way. That will be as true at home as it is out in public.

Blessings,

Gaian ~ 7 Earth

This is the day to focus on a long-term practical goal and set up down-to-earth steps to getting there. This is the time to do the inner work toward that goal. I need to remember that this is an earth goal and doesn't happen quickly... it is a goal that, like gardening, needs frequent attention and is on Gaia's schedule, not mine. It is my task to do the "daily" work to meet the goal. I have a couple of things in mind to focus on... but need to evaluate if I can do both or if I need to concentrate on one of them.

Blessings,
Collien~~~

GRYFFINSONG ~ What a GREAT card to get for your art career path! King is the mastery of your art. Since you have related the card to yourself... and I think you are correct in this --- you are the master of your art. I also went online and looked at the card and it struck me as interesting that as full of energy Wands are this king looks calm and very much in control of the energy.

I would read that card as you are on the right path... and tell you to know that underneath all the human emotions that you are actually in control and calm and have confidence in your creativity. Let that confidence shine through so others can see that confidence!

Blessings,
Collien~~~

I'll have to check out the Gaian deck. :)

I've been feeling discouraged lately. Not on weight, I've lost two pounds this week. But on my art career, and the path I'm on in general. I looked at my tarot bags and took one almost at random. Turned out to be the Golden Tarot by Kat Black.

King of Wands

He holds his hand on his heart, which is where I've tended to put my hand lately. I think partly because my heart hurts for my path that doesn't seem to be working, and partly because that's where it swells with lymphedema between my mastectomy scars. He seems thoughtful, but he's got his staff of wisdom and creativity. He's got his fire to warm and inspire him. He's got sumptuous surroundings and drink, and a lizard looking questioningly at him.

I'm reminded that I am on the path to the king. I might fall, I might cry, I might feel sad or scared. But ultimately, as long as I get up when I fall, and continue on, I have not failed.

Gaian ~ 4 Earth

This is a time to build a stronger foundation, set limits and attend to boundaries especially in the area of being thankful... grateful for our connection to the source and our soul purpose. My plans today are to plant some flowers I have been given which will not only bless the gifts I was given, but also stand as a statement to the fruitfulness of the coming crop. While doing this I can know what I do with the gifts from a friend will be happening on a higher level with the gifts given me from All That Is knowing that these gifts to will bloom and blossom with careful tending.

Thanx GRYFFINSON... this is a delightful deck. The Child cards (pages) are some of the most delightful. I truly love the Child of Air with a small child surrounded by butterflies. It has such soft universal meanings. It uses the elements of Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. What I love is my favorite the Swords are Air and are not all negative and "cutting". It is an amazing deck. I had misplaced it for a while during my home improvement project and I'm sooo happy to have it back!

Blessings,
Collien~~~

Gaian ~ Child Fire

Enthusiasm... child-like wonder, inspiration and open to new possibilities. I receive encouraging news and message about spiritual growth. [ YES! I found my Gaian deck and yes, I'm full of enthusiasm to be able to use it again! Look at the wonder on the little boy's face... LOVE the feeling I get just by looking at the card!!! ]

That's a wonderfully positive step, Helsdottir. :)

Baroque Bohemian Cats - Page of Cups

I have to laugh. I was just designing a character for a roleplaying game, and her "normal" persona is that of a landscape designer. I described her as designing beautiful fountains, and the cat in this card is examining a fountain with a fish spraying water. The page has a large, golden, covered cup with a sailing ship on it. I'm reminded of my travels, and that perhaps I'm beginning a new journey in my life. I do not yet know where its leading, and perhaps I feel a little lost right now. But this page is so sweet, and in such a lush setting, and so curious about everything, that I feel as if I have the tools I need to get going.

On my way to the library this morning, I signed up for a month at a small local workout place. So just now I drew for my success with physical fitness for this month and drew the King of Pentacles. Hmm.

So, I have the necessary means and resources to make this work, and I must pay close attention to advice from physical fitness experts.

My target is to burn off 10 pounds and/or reduce my waistline by 2 inches.

Thanks! :)

I got an eight too ... of pents. I used the Prairie Tarot. I haven't had any time to think about it. Just got home from the faire and am fighting a migraine, but am seeing it, at least in part, as the hard work I've put in so far.

Crystal Visions ~ 8 Wands

The card tells me I'm in the groove and I can watch the energy of my efforts manifest. Humm... I think this is an "in your dreams" card as I am *really* suffering with pain today... fibromyalgia is in full bloom. Although I have visions of completing projects the pain is freezing me in place afraid to move as it would stir up more pain. I trust as the day progresses the pain will subside and the efforts will multiple into completed projects.

Blessings,

GRYFFINSONG ~Having worked fairs for myself and for others I have experience in knowing sometimes you can sit all day (all week) and sell only a few items, but get calls and emails from people who weren't even at the fair because of the "word-of-mouth" from people who attended. Be assured that your face and your name is getting out there and getting known. The hard part is having trust and patience to remain as upbeat and positive the last day as the first no matter how much or how little you sell. Trust you are in the right place at the right time to be noticed by the right people!

Thank you, ceker!!! I needed to hear a cheery voice, and I'm taking your words to heart!

I'm on my iPad, which is a pain on which to type, but will post more when I get home tomorrow night.

Looks like we are on the same schedule... We have a duplicate first post. I'm so happy to have you posting and happy to are back to using tarot to encourage yourself.

It is early in the day since you posted at noon... (it must be 4 pm now as it's one here in the west and you are in the east). You are making a lovely impact on the faire goers... hand out all those cards and you will have many requests after the faire. Your quilts are sooo beautiful that they can't help but make a lasting impact on those that see them!

With the 4 of Cups, check your ability to be receptive and open it up a bit more. You have what it takes... go for it!

Blessings,
Collien~~~

Prairie Tarot - 4 of cups

I'm at the Virginia renaissance faire, vending my artwork. It's 90 degrees and I've wilted. Easy to get discouraged. Ironic that there's one cup upright, because I've only sold one art quilt today.

Pulled a second card for encouragement, and got the Jackalope. Equivalent to the flying squirrel, this fellow always gives me a smile. He says, "hang on, everything will be ok. Keep smiling!"
