Sukhā virāgatā loke,
Kāmānaṃ samatikkamo;
Asmimānassa yo vinayo —
etaṃ ve paramaṃ sukhaṃ.

Blissful is passionlessness in the world,
The overcoming of sensual desires;
But the abolition of the conceit I am —
That is truly the supreme bliss.

Tarot Contemplation – Four of Swords

Calm your mind today.  Shift your focus inwardly so that recovery and healing can take place.  Take time to let our thoughts settle and your ideas mature.  Taking time for mental restoration now will help you focus and stay motivated in the days to come.  When this card appears it’s time for a break.  Stress can take a toll on our bodies, minds and spirits.  Taking time out to recuperate can give us the strength and fortitude we need to carry on.  The Four of Swords may also be advising you to seek counsel, to go to an expert for advice.  You are also advised to keep some new idea to yourself for now.  Let the idea grow in your mind before sharing it with the world.

Pāli Word a Day for April 28, 2017 — asaṇkuppa — the unshakeable

Bahumpi ce saṃhita bhāsamāno,
na takkaro hoti naro pamatto,
gopova gāvo gaṇayaṃ paresaṃ,
na bhāgavā sāmaññassa hoti.

Much though one recites the sacred texts,
but acts not accordingly,
that heedless one is like a cowherd
who only counts the cows of others —
one does not partake of the blessings of the holy life.

Daily Words of the Buddha for April 27, 2017

Pāli Word a Day for April 27, 2017 — sabbaganthappamocana — freedom from all bonds

Idha modati pecca modati;
katapuñño ubhayattha modati.
So modati so pamodati,
disvā kammavisuddhimattano.

The doer of good rejoices here and hereafter;
one rejoices in both the worlds.
One rejoices and exults,
recollecting one’s own pure deeds.

Tarot Contemplation – The Chariot (reversed)

You can accomplish a great deal today, but discipline is key.  Stay focused on your goals.  Don’t let distractions interfere.  You have the skills and resources to achieve what you want, but not without effort.  When the Chariot appears reversed, there is trouble with making progress.  You may have all you need to move forward but lack the confidence to work towards your dreams.  You may not feel deserving of happiness, or you may feel stifled by fear.  Try to overcome your doubt.  It is likely that your thoughts are limiting you more than the reality of the situation.  This card could also indicate that your energy is scattered.  You may be unclear about what you want, or you may feel pressured to put others’ desires before your own.  Take time to go inside yourself and seek clarity about your priorities.  The Chariot reversed may indicate movement, but it is movement that has not been thought through clearly.  You may be overconfident and rushing ahead before completing the foundational steps necessary to achieve your goal.  Your actions now may also be unethical or harmful to yourself or others.  This card is advising you to slow down and look at the bigger picture.  It could also indicate travel trouble, especially when travel is over land.  Be sure to have your vehicle tuned up before a long trip and allow yourself extra time to get to appointments.

Medicinal Trees: Elder

Good Witches Homestead

Elder {Sambucus nigra}

Also, Known As:

  • Bourtree
  • Elder
  • Elder-berry
  • Elder-flower
  • European Elder
  • Pipe Tree

The plant called the elder is used to describe a bushy shrub like plant that can reach a few feet in height as shrub-like forms normally do or it may be referring to a tree reaching up to fifty feet in height – the elderberries which are borne on both types of plants range and differ markedly in the shape and taste. The flowers are usually formed in aromatic clusters of many star-shaped and white colored flowers, which can vary from bunches with flat-topped to the globular types of arrangement. When ripened, these will mature to produce berrylike and limb sagging fruits which can range in color from stark blue to an amber, and even red to a complete black – the variation in the taste of these elderberries is also markedly different.

Anya's Astrology

Peace moonToday’s Taurus new moon is telling a story all of its own, because it’s got no main aspects, except for a wide conjunction with retrograde Mercury still in Aries. Of course, at new moon the moon is conjunct the sun, always, too.

Moon is in the best sign for it, it’s exalted. Moon symbolizes so many things in astrology, but some are moods, emotions, females in general, reflection and a kind of passivity as contrasted with the outgoing energy of the sun. In the sign Taurus, lunar reflective qualities find it easier to manifest: peace, domesticity, just relaxing, being still – qualities that today’s society perhaps doesn’t place a high value on. Taurus moon people like their creature comforts, are not afraid of their sensuality, love to dwell on their earthy side. Taurus is an earth sign, and befittingly, Earth Day happens during sun in Taurus month.

I want to focus completely on what is important to me

Walk down a steady path
Feet swift but grounded
Mind emotionally set

When I make a promise I want to be able to keep it…no matter what

Stubborn…yes I am it’s just a shame more of us aren’t

Oh it is so true that I have gotten stuck in a situation that was not so good for me all because I refused to throw away the time I had invested in itIn my mind holding on to what I have is far better than risking it all to try something new

Perhaps it is time to change that way of thinking!

And seek out a second chance to a more sensible approach to life
