My goddess

Hekate

Hekate

Hekate is a goddess

from long long ago

way back in Greece

long before I began to grow

Hekate helped me to understand her ways

and there are times for levity

and that there is times for seriousness

that’s something I will have to remedy

I had made an error

I knew I had messed up

I had upset my guide

Causing me to tear up

She took me to a dark and misty place

A trip that went on through the night

I felt no fear along the way

I knew that I would be alright

I walked a long path

with many many turns

I felt my guides

Who voiced their concerns

The message was felt

I was not spoken

Your guides are here

Unless they are forsaken

I was on the right path

The evidence was clear

There were things to do

But i was to have no fear

I was to go back

I was to return

To the true ones

That had showed concern

I was to end

The long negativity

I was to smile

And always to be positive

I was to apologize

To those I had hurt

To light the incense

And repair the cuts

I was to be patient

In my greatest desires

To end the anxiety

But to find my power

If I maintained

And if I prayed

I would return

And find my way

If I continued on my current path

If I did not slow  down

Things would go badly

And I would slowly drown

You know who loves you

I was told

Follow your heart

but don’t be bold

Be patient and kind

and let them lead

They know much more

Of what you need

You will get there

But not today

You need to learn

Along the way

There are good and bad spirits

along this long path

Some are there to help

Some will cause a wrath

You know the difference

You can read the signs

Now follow your heart

and not your mind

Sept 5th Divination

The King of Wands is pure fire energy, but strangely enough, he has the least to do with actual creation and creativity. His forte is not in dreaming up ideas and implementing them himself, but in taking an idea and changing the world to match his vision. As such he is a natural leader and commander of all kinds of people. They flock to him to hear what he has to say and leave just as eagerly when he gives them something to do for him. Like the rest of the Kings, the ruler of the Wands suit will appear in two ways in your life: either as a person or as a part of yourself that must be awakened.

As a person, the King of Wands is the ultimate leader, who looks forward to challenges because he enjoys the rush of adrenalin that solving a difficult problem can induce. He not only dispels his own fear but that of others, by ensuring them that they shall succeed. He is not all talk, though; when the going gets tough no one hangs in there longer than he does. The King of Wands has a deep and innate respect for other people, and his compassion extends farther than most people would expect. For a King, he has a remarkably good relationship with the common people. When he is unable to assist by himself, he will empower and enable others to help in his place.

As with all of us, the King’s faults emerge from his strengths. Most of the time he does not show enough restraint to know when assistance is not needed or wanted. He can sometimes make things even worse by doing what he thinks is the right thing – and he always thinks that what he is doing is the right thing. Most of the time his high sense of ethics proves him right, but in those few times where he is on the wrong side of the argument, he can do more harm than good. But one thing that can never be said of him is that he walks away from problems, whatever they are. He will defend another man just as vigilantly, if not more so, than he would protect himself.

An inner spiritual change is often heralded when this card appears. The King of Wands invites us to act as he would to solve our problems. His vision is one of ideal reality, and his vision is that humanity might always be better than it is. He is the warrior of light who stands up for something that matters, and his appearance is an invitation for you to do so as well. If there is a cause you wish to support, but you are unsure of your position, you may proceed with the knowledge that your base of power is strong. Enjoy the King’s power and authority, but be sure to use it for productive means. Take your responsibilities seriously, think of new ways to do things, and never stop believing in yourself.

Your Past Lives Tarot Card for Today

The Star

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you stand up for other’s rights you can stir deeply-seated past life memories in yourself. The origin of these feelings might come from having a past life experience of your own family’s struggle. At this time the civil rights leader inside you has come to the forefront. This spirit is more afraid of not standing up for what he or she believes in then fearful of what retribution one could face. This incarnation comes with an inner strength that is founded in compassion.

Your Daily Tarot Power Card for Today

Justice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is at least one person in your life who needs to be addressed with a little bit of tough love. You have to be fair, of course, and think through the situation carefully to make sure that you understand completely. This person may be somebody you love or need, but criticism must be delivered, however blunt or insensitive you may be perceived by speaking your mind. A heartfelt letter may be in order, even if done at a distance.

Your Tarot Love Card for Today

Strength

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Strength card indicates that today marks a new beginning. That should cause a glimmer of hope to spark in your soul. It radiates from you and brings people to you like moths to a flame. If in a long-term relationship, incorporate loving rules, like balance, harmony, and understanding served in an unconditional way. The good times are easy to enjoy. The real worth of a relationship comes from how a couple acts during difficult times.

Your Ogham Reading

 

Huathe-Hawthorn

The Celts often believed the hawthorn to be a portal to the Otherworld. The hawthorn is a hardy plant commonly used for hedges and great firewood. It can even be an invasive species at times. The key points to remember with the letter Huathe are obstacles, walls, and obstructions. Its ability to form a natural wall gives the diviner an idea in what this symbol can mean to them and their lives.

Fortune – To overcome obstacles and walls you must make a personal sacrifice, to gain we must lose something of ourselves!

 

 

 

Quert-Apple

In many religious traditions the apple is a mystical or forbidden fruit. Yet to the Celts it was the food of the Gods. Despite it’s often bad reputation it is clear that the apple is a source of nutrition, health, and sustenance. That is why we read this ogham letter has having to do with life, health, and healing… a Quert a day keeps the bad vibes away!

Fortune – Take a good look at your mental and physical health. This Ogham is a warning to be mindful of nutrition and healing, take care of yourself!

 

 

 

Gort-Ivy

The ivy is a sneaky plant that will first use another tree for growth, but overtime it will potentially take away vital nutrients and water from the tree itself. Ivy can be a symbiotic helper bringing birds and wildlife or it can destroy the one it is with, drawing this letter is a sign of warning to pay attention to those in life with potential ill intentions. Ideas associated with Gort are restrictions, warnings, bindings, and potential deceit.

Fortune – Be wary of those in life who like the Ivy may be draining you of life energy. Be sure they are helpful to your soul and not harmful!

Your Ancient Symbol Oracle for Today

Justice



Justice represents the expression of fairness without bias. Simply put, Justice embodies the notion that what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong. Justice denotes the need to remedy situations lacking equality for all. Depending on the circumstances, Justice may be asking us to curb our partiality, or conversely, Justice may indicate a time for you to demand fair treatment.
