Your Animal Spirit for Today
You’ve heard the expression “playing possum”? It means to play dead and is derived from Opossum’s ability to act in whatever way the situation demands. If it’s practical to play dead, so be it; if it’s to Opossum’s advantage to be aggressive, watch out! Take your cue from this master actor today—and play the role that will serve you best.
The Chakras represent the seven primary energy hubs in the body. Life force energy is constantly flowing in and out of these centers. Just as the cosmos is constantly changing, so too are the levels of energy absorbed and radiated by our Chakra centers. The graph below is a representation of the quantities of Chakra energies available today.
Sahasrara – The Crown Chakra represents energies associated with cosmic consciousness, spirituality, knowledge, wisdom and inner peace.
Ajna – The Third Eye Chakra represents energies focused on both physical and spiritual vision. Psychic powers resonate from the Ajna Chakra, as well as your image of the Cosmos as a whole (the big picture) and the many nuances that make your journey unique.
Vishuddha – Throat Chakra is the energy center associated with communication and creativity. Your energy to express yourself verbally and creatively are derived from the Vishuddha Chakra.
Anahata – The Heart Chakra’s energy is concentrated on issues concerning your emotions. This energy fuels your power to love, feel compassion and maintain balance between disparate aspects of your being.
Manipura – The Power Chakra provides the energy that fuels our strength of will, individuality and sense of self-worth.
Svadhisthana – The Spleen or Sacral Chakra supplies the energy we use emotionally and sexually. This is the energy used to connect to others.
Muladhara – The Root or Base Chakra furnishes the energy used to create and maintain our foundation. This is the energy that keeps us on firm ground and provides us with the basic skills to uphold a place in the world.
|Your Deck of Ancient Symbols Card for Today|
Balance denotes the benefits of keeping the use of your energies justifiably proportioned between your pursuits. The symbol Yin and Yang is used to represent the balance. Yin and Yang is possibly the most elegant and sometimes elusive definition of Balance there is. While Balance is rarely if ever perfect, being far out of Balance means that while one part of you may be thriving tremendously, another part of your life may be wilting.
As a daily card, Balance indicates a need to find and maintain a level physical and spiritual state. It suggest you may be concentrating your energy on one or a few things so much that you are neglecting other important aspects of your life. While this is often necessary to make immediate gains it can lead to missing out on the diverse richness of life in the long term.

If your home faces east, your home is ideal for making a fresh start, raising children, and opening your own business.
You may have a tendency to be a bit hard-headed and stubborn today; caution yourself against engaging in domestic squabbles. You have all the self confidence you need at your disposal. Much to your delight, others won’t hesitate to show you their support.
About the Number 1
The lasting impact of a major shock can either be stimulating or debilitating, depending upon one’s strength of character. The critical factor is the ability to shake off fear, thereby transforming anxiety into a laser-sharp perception of the world around you.
When overtaken by crisis, the wise search their hearts for inner strengths in order to face their life with courage. This often means daring to take an unexpected path — to bounce back quickly and self-confidently after failures, to have faith in the eternal when confronted with death.
We tend to think of shock only in the context of unpleasant events. We can also be jarred, however, by the sudden release of tension that comes with unexpected joy or success. To keep your bearings in the aftershock of either trauma or victory, it is essential that your inner compass be aligned with ‘true north’, that magnetic force which guides you toward fulfillment of both your deepest desire, and your highest destiny.
|Spirit Runes are most commonly used for questions about mysticism, spirituality, and religion. Algiz can be easily recognized as the antlers of the elk that it represents. The elk can represent victory, but is much more appropriately associated with the thrill of the hunt itself. This rune therefore can portend vigor and success in active endeavors. Also, this rune seems symbolic of a hand with outstretched fingers – a protective hand. This hand may suggest that you will be shielded from things negative – the problems still exist, you are spared the brunt of their force.|
This Tarot Deck: Esoterico
Because monasteries were the only places a person could learn to read and write in the middle ages, a Hierophant was one to whom a student would petition for entry. He was the one to set the curriculum for the neophyte’s course of study.
Often pictured with the right hand raised in blessing, the Hierophant is linked with the ancient lineage of Melchezidek, initiator of the Hebrew priestly tradition, the one who passes on the teachings. All shamans of any tradition draw upon this archetype
What you say today has more impact than usual so remember to choose your words very carefully. Instead of impulsively blabbering away about whatever comes to mind, consider what you want before you speak. However, keep in mind your natural tendency is to overlook the details. Use positive images to inspire others, but don’t gloss over what’s important just because it doesn’t support your vision.
Your ability to say exactly the right thing can help you through a tricky situation today, while allowing you to inadvertently promise more than you can deliver. Unfortunately, you may not realize what you’ve said until it’s too late. Speaking before you think increases the stress; make sure to balance any positive immediate effect with the potential long-term consequences.
Daydreaming is a great way to visualize different scenarios before you pick out the right one to follow. Your thoughts can take you on a spectacular journey today; however, individually each one seems so good that you simply cannot make up your mind. There isn’t any reason to force making a choice right away, so just enjoy the present moment while it lasts.
You may be a bit detached from everyone around you today. It’s as if getting close to someone now activates a memory of an old emotional wound. But don’t be too harsh a critic because your energy will continue to morph and change. Practice letting go of your desire to control everything; your adaptability helps you turn a complex day into a simply joyous one.
You might be feeling sorry for yourself today, especially if others tell you that you should be living a less complicated life. But you recently made decisions that suggest you like to have a variety of options at your disposal. However, don’t waste too much energy arguing with anyone else or you’ll wear yourself out before you can make the right choice. Ultimately, the only person you have to please is yourself.
The Moon’s stressful square with motor-mouthed Mercury reminds you to forget about your worries and see how far you can take one great idea, instead. But it’s not a day of impractical fantasies, so don’t bother trying to escape from the practical side of life. Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, even while allowing new ideas to inspire your dreams.
You may feel optimistic today, but it’s not easy to put your big ideas into action. Your patience will ultimately be rewarded, freeing you to talk about your plans. Once the Moon enters fiery Sagittarius in the afternoon you remember how much fun you can have when you take off on an adventure. Don’t hold back; start something new and exciting when the universe tells you that it’s time.
Although you may begin the day with a high level of anxiety, your current emotional overload may be exactly the catalyst you need. You might prefer to keep quiet now, because once you begin sharing you could end up saying way more than you originally intended. Don’t worry if you overreact in the early morning, for there’s still time to find your way back to a more comfortable place later in the day.
The Moon’s return to your extroverted sign this afternoon is an exciting wake-up call. You can consciously set patterns for the next couple of weeks, but it may be smarter to simply focus on what’s happening in the immediate moment, instead. Once the reset is complete and you are fully engaged in the here-and-now, it becomes much easier to imagine the amazing possibilities of the future.
You may still be on your guard today, especially if you recently had a few days of very intense interactions. Unfortunately, the lack of any real romance on your horizon could be the source of your unhappiness. Fortunately, you can shift your attention to seek satisfaction professionally. You’re a champion when it comes to working hard and now this innate characteristic pays off handsomely. But even if you are proud of your accomplishments, don’t totally ignore your heart.
You are blessed with the gift of gab now and everywhere you turn, the words just fall right out of your mouth. You love to talk about your recent experiences, yet this isn’t a time to reminisce about past achievements. Throw caution to the wind and open your mind to a wide variety of possibilities before settling down and choosing one. Visualizing your future is the first step to creating your dreams.
Others may get lost as they try to follow your thinking today because your thoughts are slipping in and out of fantasies and parallel universes, making everything quite complex. But even if you can’t untangle your words, you still can reach your audience in other ways by playing a song, reading a poem or drawing a picture. Set aside your tech manuals and science books for now and let your creative genius shine.
