Card of the Day – The Fool – Saturday, September 22, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Have you been trying to break out, break free, and have a fresh start? Let the Fool lead the way. Just like a small child has not learned fear, has not become jaded by life, so too does the Fool have a carefree attitude.

Today may be a day where you simply decide to go for it, throwing caution to the wind, and letting the chips fall where they may. Adventure awaits, if you only dare to take that leap.

See you here tomorrow!

2018 Aries Full Moon in Phoenix Month

Susan Levitt

autumn leaves

September 22 2018 is Autumn Equinox, equal day and equal night, a time for balance as the seasonal wheel turns. September 24 is the Harvest Moon, the full Moon that’s closest to Autumn Equinox. This Harvest Moon is in Fire sign Aries, bringing energy and vitality. Aries inspires action, and an independent spirit, during this full Moon and as this lunar cycle wanes.

The full Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in harmonious aspects to Mars, newly in Aquarius. Mars brings courage, self reliance, and stamina. It’s fortunate to engage in physical activity to strengthen the mind and spirit, as well as the body. It’s also a good time to examine motivations, and decide what projects to forward or to complete. Contact me for your tarot consultation about choices and direction.

The full Moon, Sun, and Mercury square Saturn to slow down and be thorough. Attention to details is important…

Daily Words of the Buddha for September 22, 2018

Pāli Word a Day for September 22, 2018  —  taranga — a wave

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.

BACOPA MONNIERA: Brain Health and Nervous System Restorer

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

A classic brain and nerve tonic, Bacopa is a medicinal herb that has been used effectively for several thousand years as a brain and nervous system restorer. The herb is known to increase mental clarity and promote improved memory and intelligence. It also assists in heightening mental acuity and supports the physiological processes involved in relaxation. In other words, it can keep you feeling relaxed while also boosting mental clarity, your focus, and mood.

Hauʻōli lā Pōʻaono

 

Aloha kākahiāka a me Hauʻōli lā Pōʻaōno nā Kanaka. Āʻia ī kā ʻōlelo nō ke ʻōla, āʻia ī kā ʻōlelo nō kā make. Ō kā maluhia nō me ʻoe.

Good morning and Happy Saturday, People. In speech is life, in speech is death. In ancient Hawai’i, a kahuna ‘ana’ana could pray someone to death or counter another’s death prayer. The saying tells the Hawaiians that words can either be a source for healing or destroying and so we need to be careful with our words. Peace be with you.

Card of the Day – 6 of Wands – Friday, September 21, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

All I can say is it is about time! You have been trying and trying, have been in breakout mode for a little bit now, and, just like the figure in the image, today you get over one of those hurdles. Honestly, this is exactly what your self confidence ordered. This is a card of victory, and, when achieved, it sure does feel good to strut your stuff and say “Look what I just did!”. After all, this has been a bit of an obstacle course, and there are obviously more hurdles to be encountered.

The 6 of Wands brings the type of success where others recognize your efforts and praise you for your accomplishments. A pat on the back, an “attaboy”, perhaps even your fifteen minutes of fame, any, and all are possible. You know that feeling when you are lagging behind in the race, and suddenly you gain…

Daily Words of the Buddha for September 21, 2018

Pāli Word a Day for September 21, 2018  —  tappara — quite given to or intent upon, diligent, devoted

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.

Autumn Equinox Ritual Doll

The Witch & Walnut

autumn equinox ritual dollHere we are approaching the weekend of the equinox and I have really slowed down and taken time to enjoying the changing seasons.

I have been working on my Autumn ritual doll for a couple weeks now and this weekend she will become part of me and live on my altar until the spring equinox.

These dolls can be made of any material that feels right for you and represents you the best as you head into the last chapter. She is meant to give you comfort and be with you during a time when naturally we start to look inwards and prepare to be more still and take solace in the quiet time.

doll2Think about what the doll means for you? Are you looking to gain something, shed something or maybe you are not sure yet? That is absolutely okay, you can start constructing your doll and add to…

recollecting one’s own pure deeds.

Card of the Day – 7 of Cups – Thursday, September 20, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

It is possible that today may come off feeling a bit distracting. Perhaps there are too many things in front of you which need your attention, or even an intentional situation designed to redirect your focus. In order to understand what I mean, think of it in a political sense, with something aimed to divert your attention from the reality of what is really happening. You could find the idea of making decisions difficult today, especially when dealing with those who may wish to deceive you by pulling the wool over your eyes.

The 7 of Cups can be a bit of a reality check, whether it be with your own hopes and dreams, decisions, or intentions. You may need to step back and analyze your options with a more down-to-earth approach. There can be disillusionment, perhaps through a feeling of being overwhelmed. Choices are not always easy. If you…

The Promise Of A Shaman


If you come to me as a victim I will not support you.
But I will have the courage to walk with you through the pain that you are suffering.
I will put you in the fire, I will undress you, and I will sit you on the earth.
I will bathe you with herbs, I will purge you, and you will vomit the rage and the darkness inside you.
I’ll bang your body with good herbs, and I’ll put you to lay in the grass, face up to the sky.
Then I will blow your crown to clean the old memories that make you repeat the same behavior.
I will blow your forehead to scare away the thoughts that cloud your vision.
I will blow your throat to release the knot that won’t let you talk.
I will blow your heart to scare fear, so that it goes far away where it cannot find you.
I will blow your solar plexus to extinguish the fire of the hell you carry inside, and you will know peace.
I will blow with fire your belly to burn the attachments, and the love that was not.
I will blow away the lovers that left you, the children that never came.
I will blow your heart to make you warm, to rekindle your desire to feel, create and start again.
I will blow with force your vagina or your penis, to clean the sexual door to your soul.
I will blow away the garbage that you collected trying to love what did not wanted to be loved.
I will use the broom, and the sponge, and the rag, and safely clean all the bitterness inside you.
I will blow your hands to destroy the ties that prevent you from creating.
I will blow your feet to dust and erase the footprints memories, so you can never return to that bad place.
I will turn your body, so your face will kiss the earth.
I’ll blow your spine from the root to the neck to increase your strength and help you walk upright.
And I will let you rest.

After this you will cry, and after crying you will sleep,
And you will dream beautiful and meaningful dreams,
and when you wake up I’ll be waiting for you.
I will smile at you, and you will smile back
I will offer you food that you will eat with pleasure, tasting life, and I will thank you.
Because what I’m offering today, was offered to me before when darkness lived within me.
And after I was healed, I felt the darkness leaving, and I cried.

Then we will walk together, and I will show you my garden, and my plants, and I will take you to the fire again.
And will talk together in a single voice with the blessing of the earth.
And we will shout to the forest the desires of your heart.
And the fire will listen and whisper the echo, and we will create hope together.
And the mountains will listen and whisper the echo, and we will create hope together.
And the rivers will listen and whisper the echo, and we will create hope together.
And the wind will listen and whisper the echo, and we will create hope together.
And then we will bow before the fire, and we will call upon all the visible and invisible guardians.
And you will say thank you to all of them.
And you will say thank you to yourself.
And you will say thank you to yourself.
And you will say thank you to yourself.

Daily Words of the Buddha for September 18, 2018

Pāli Word a Day for September 18, 2018  —  adhivāsa— endurance, forbearance, holding out

Pāṇaṃ na hane na ca ghātayeyya,

sabbesu bhūtesu nidhāya daṇḍaṃ.
Ye thāvarā ye ca tasā santi loke.

One should not kill a living being,
nor cause it to be killed,
nor should one incite another to kill.
Do not injure any being, either strong or weak, in the world.

Card of the Day – 4 of Cups – Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Feeling in a rut? That urge to break out peaks today as Mars and Uranus square off once again. A reminder that this energy is one best put to good use, and not to let yourself be overrun by it. Since May, you have been trying to do something, and there have been many zigs, zags, detours, and holdups along the way. Sorry, but the same old, same old will just not cut it anymore. Boredom with the status quo may run rampant now.

So, what to do when you are feeling like this? First, ask yourself what it is that you don’t want in your life; that should be pretty clear. Meditate, contemplate, do whatever it is that helps you achieve a place of clarity. Next is considering what you do want, and this may be where it can become tricky with the 4 of Cups involved. Don’t rule…

Autumn Equinox, September 22nd, 2018 ~ The Shift

The New Divine Humanity

As I sit here, amazed, bathed in the heat and sun of summer in the air and on my skin, I know that very soon, the Fall Equinox will arrive. I am in the Northern Hemisphere and here our equal days and nights, takes place at the beginning of Libra, astrologically. The Balance, the scales.

As the daylight becomes shorter and almost becomes the same length as the night-time, we celebrate the Harvest, the beginning of Fall. September 22, 2018, 10:54 pm ADT. Equinox ~ equal light.  As the daylight becomes less and less, and the darkness becomes greater, we then celebrate the shortest day of daylight, the winter solstice and the return to greater light.

For those in the Southern Hemisphere, you will too be celebrating equal days and nights, although for you, it will be the beginning of spring, leading up to the summer solstice, the longest day…

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Monday, September 17, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Rock bottom…down and out…the only way to go is up. The last time we saw this card was in the beginning of May. Uranus’ stay in Aries was growing in intensity and nearing its end before moving into Taurus on May 15. These last few months, since that sign shift, have not been easy ones for so many of you. Tomorrow, Uranus, which is retrograde in Taurus, will square Mars, which is in shadow in Aquarius. You are likely to be feeling these energies.

The urge to break out and begin a true recovery (10 of Swords) may very well hit you now. Go ahead, stand up and move toward the light which is the dawn of a new day. This square can also prove stressful (10 of Swords) to some of you, if you, or those around you, are not harnessing the energy to break out and break free…
