Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:
Wednesday, April 27th, 2011
General Meaning: Substantial progress and increasing prosperity is pointed to. In whatever forms it takes, periods of increase are exhilarating, as long as you go with the flow while it lasts and keep the interests of others in mind. Like white water on a river, periods of increase are often of short duration; it furthers one, therefore, to shoot the rapids now, while the opportunity is there.
A good sense of direction in times of opportunity involves commitment to the needs of one’s cohorts and dependents. Only by realizing that to lead is really to serve, can an effective leader contribute to a lasting increase in prosperity for all. In times of general increase, those who contribute most directly to the common good will also receive the greatest rewards.
When opportunities for increase arise, supreme good fortune comes to those who act swiftly and boldly, while avoiding the trap of letting their actions be only self-serving. If you aspire to a position of prominence, the most enduring strategy is to work to raise the tide of your entire pond, rather than to try to swim upstream on your own.
When the times favor prosperity, and when leadership is in the hands of the broad-minded, supreme good fortune results.
You may feel as if an important change is taking place within, but are not yet clear about its true nature. You are going through a transforming growth spurt, and may not have much patience with yourself. Don’t try to analyze what’s going on; just roll with it. Romance is highly favored today.
About the Number 3
Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:
This Tarot Deck: Gummy Bear Tarot
The Sun card could also be titled “Back to Eden.” The Sun’s radiance is where one’s original nature or unconditioned Being can be encountered in health and safety. The limitations of time and space are stripped away; the soul is refreshed and temporarily protected from the chaos outside the garden walls.
Under the light of the Sun, Life reclaims its primordial goodness, truth and beauty. If one person is shown on this card, it is usually signifying a human incarnation of the Divine. When two humans are shown, the image is portraying a resolution of the tension between opposites at all levels. It’s as if this card is saying “You can do no wrong — it’s all to the good!”
Clearly communicating your point of view sounds like a good idea until someone steps forward with a conflicting opinion. You might try to convince him or her that your perspective is the correct one, but you may not be the only person who is committed enough to fight for your beliefs. Rather than wasting energy defending your conclusion today, use this interaction as an opportunity for growth. However, you must remain open now to ideas different from your own.
You are able to stand firm in your beliefs today, making others recognize that you have the determination to reach your goals. Your associates will most likely support your ideas because they are eager to be on the winning team. However, it’s not a good idea to abuse your power. If your actions come from selfish desires, you won’t be able to keep your following. Fortunately, you can go far if you are conscious enough to work toward the common good.
You have open channels of communication today that tap into rich archetypal symbols. You can gain guidance from subconscious images that pop into your awareness, but this isn’t just a mental exercise. Your dreams motivate you to act directly on your feelings instead of on rational thoughts. Don’t try to filter or intellectualize your fantasies; allow them to bypass your head and directly touch your heart.
You are able to clearly see where you’re heading now and could become the person that everyone depends on because of your solid sense of direction. It’s wise to rely on your instincts because you know where you are, and how to get where you are going. But you must pay careful attention today since everything seems to be moving so fast. Update others with the details often so everyone feels included in the process.
You can waste a lot of words today by talking about what’s happening and what you think needs to be done. Unfortunately, others may not be listening very well. It isn’t that you’re boring; in fact, your friends usually want to hear what you have to say. It’s just that they’re tired of idle chatter now. It is time for taking constructive action; you will be noticed if you do more and say less.
You can see things more clearly today as if your world suddenly became brighter. Although your senses are usually sharp, you have a much wider range of perceptions today. Experiences that may have been beyond your awareness only yesterday are now beckoning you into new territory. Enjoy this journey of growth; metamorphosis is safer than you think.
You might feel as if other people are still being pushier than necessary, but it may not disturb you today because you have found the courage to stand up for yourself. Your unshakable conviction is your secret weapon now; if you’re in tune with your own purpose, then no one can come between you and your soul’s destiny.
The Sun’s harmonious trine with your key planet Pluto allows you to move forward with unrelenting intent. The absolute certainty that arises from accepting your fate won’t lead you astray today. However, acquiescing to your destiny isn’t about being powerless; it’s about taking responsibility to create the waves upon which you are riding. You are a mover and shaker now, so go out of your way to make something memorable happen while you can.
You are able to strengthen your financial foundation these days as the Sun harmonizes with potent Pluto in your 2nd House of Money. Thankfully, you can overcome nearly any limitations that you currently face. One obvious way to progress toward your fiscal goals is to spend less money, yet this strategy might not take you far enough. Consider refinancing your home, making a wise investment or even accepting a second job. Whatever you try now, think seriously about your future security.
You are more intense today as Pluto in your sign is emphasized by its aspects to Venus and the Sun. Others might not realize how grounded you are because your passions are close to the surface. Fortunately, you can express your feelings and are then able to back them up with practical action. Don’t be satisfied with what you already have; set new goals and then work to achieve them. You might surprise yourself with how much you can accomplish now.
You have an opportunity to share your opinion about a delicate matter today without stirring up trouble, even if your perspective is controversial. If you previously upset others because of your unconventional beliefs, you now get to express the same thoughts without creating more negative repercussions. Make certain that you present your conclusions logically without attacking anyone else’s values.
Your friends may come to your assistance today and support you in ways that money can’t buy. On a mundane level, they might help out with physical labor or by protecting you from others. Your closest allies will also speak the truth, even if it isn’t what you want to hear. You can always go out and hire someone to work for you; however, it’s a real gift when you receive honest and intelligent feedback from someone that you can trust.
Howdy partners! How y’all doing today? Me, don’t ask! I have never been so sick of stormy weather in my life. I got up this morning at 7:00 a.m. I made my coffee and came in here to sit down and do my daily postings. Well the weather had other plans for me. A storm rolled in and the power went out. The only positive thing was that the coffee got made. I got a cup of coffee and came back in my bedroom in hopes the power would soon be on. Well I got tired of watching the clock, I got an afghan and my pup and I curled up in the floor. Kiki would wake me up ever so often wanting to play. I would throw her Ricki Raccoon and she would bring it back and we would play for a bit. Then she would figure out that if the power wasn’t on, Momma wasn’t getting up. So I got up at 1:15 p.m., by the sound of the TV being on. But I should have known by now, living out in the boonies when the power comes on we are subject to brown outs. That is why we have surge protectors on everything we own and it was a good thing this morning. I got tired of counting the brown outs. So I decided as frequent as they were coming I didn’t have time to post anything. So I played with the zodiac symbol in the left hand corner. I did good to actually get it posted. Right now things seems to have settled down for a minute. But they are issuing Tornado Warnings all around us and the sky is starting to darken. I am going to try to post the horoscopes, tarot, runes and move some info over from my old group. I just wanted you to know that I haven’t deserted everyone. The weather right now is reeking havoc on everyone. Roads are closed due to high water. Kiki and I had run down to the Dollar General Store (they actually built a Dollar Store out here in the sticks and everyone is thrilled about it). On the way back, we took a route that I thought would be quicker to get home. Yeah right, if you had a canoe. It was a road they hadn’t put a closed sign on yet. It was actually very scary. The road just disappeared into the water and all you could see was water everywhere. If it had been night-time, we would have run right into it and been swepted away. But the water, the storms, the tornadoes and not to mention the lightning has played on all of our nerves. I went last night to get supper down toward the very tip of Kentucky. I had to stop and get gas on the way back and that was where one group of First Responders had set up their base. One of them let me listen to his radio, he was getting reports from the area that a tornado had already destroyed. The other man was watching for a wall cloud and he wasn’t seeing one. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief. The First Responder told me their main base was up by me. The main base had fire trucks and ambulances just sitting there waiting. Waiting for us to die in a storm, that’s a scary thought. This is the first time our area has ever been hit with such destruction. I thought the ice storm several years ago was bad but it can’t hold a candle to this. I know there is a lot of individuals that read my blog daily. I would like to ask a very heart-felt appeal to you all, please pray for us. Pray that we have the strength and endurance to go on. Light a candle for those that have lost everything. So far we have been extremely lucky, no one has died from these storms. Please pray for all of our safety. Most of all, please pray that this ends and we can get back to normal, whatever normal might be after all of this. We need your prayers. The people in Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois and Tennessee need you. Please help us, please pray for us.
