Tarot Cards

Today’s Tarot Card Reading come from The English Magic Tarot by Rex Van Ryn, Steve Dooley and Andy Letcher Copyright 2015 (The unfamiliar terms used with this deck is in England’s English)

General

Queen of Cups – A Court Card

Compassion; self-loathing; insobriety

Page 110

Description: A queen sits on a cold throne. She looks worn out by life, cold to the marrow.

Interpretation: This poor woman seems very lost. Her seat looks more like a prison or a torture device than a throne. That steaming cup is just her first drink of the day. Woe betide her poor servants as the day continues. Someone will be in for a tongue-lashing. She’s the Queen of Hearts and her favorite words are “Off with his head!”

We all know someone like this. They are extremely difficult to be around, shooting out barbs at the slightest provocation. And yet, behind their walled exterior is a small voice calling for help. A withered tree in the background still bears fruit. There is always hope for redemption.

When someone ends up like this, you have to ask, compassionately, why? Some dreadful hurt must have been inflicted, a blow from which she never recovered. She numbed the pain the only way she knew how, through drink, and yet the pain remains.

The Queen of Cups invites us to put down the bottle, hold our tongues, and rediscover the compassion in our hearts. If you do so, you will be wise beyond measure.

Love

Temperance – 14 Major Arcana

Stillness; balance

Pages 48 and 49

Description: A woman dips her head into a pool. She’s framed by two willow trees. She holds two cups behind her back and pours liquid from one to the other. A big cat stands on a tumulus behind her.

Interpretation: Here, everything is in balance. The willow trees show summer and winter in perfect equipoise. The woman is lightly balanced between earth and water, all the while performing some extraordinary feat of juggling behind her back. Is that cloth pouring from her cups, or water? Blood, even? She doesn’t spill a single drop. You can imagine the contents running back and forth from one to the other eternally.

One of the four, medieval cardinal virtues, Temperance has had something of bad press late. Oscar Wilde famously quipped, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.” When I think of temperance, I imagine self-righteous Sunday morning moralizers wagging a finger at our Saturday night misdemeanors, or of a sweaty Sergeant Howie in The Wicker Man, slapping the wall, as he desperately attempts to reign in his cardinal desires. If only he hadn’t. Yet the moderation depicted here is effortless, requiring neither self-flagellation nor self-congratulation. It speaks of a much easier kind of balance, the balance on which the universe rests.

All extremes flow into each other. Star are born and die. Summer becomes winter becomes summer again. Full becomes empty. The wheel turns. Accept this simple truth and nothing can knock you from your feet.

Reading: Temperance encourages us to find balance in our lives, the still waters of this place. If reversed, things have become out of balanced, perhaps dangerously so. Let the governing tides of the universe draw things back to equilibrium again.

Health

Ace of Cups

Love; friendship; emotions; feeling

Page 98

Description: In this coat of arms we see the Holy Grail. The legend reads “water my blood” and urges us “to keep silent.”

Interpretation: The Ace of Cups is the element of water at its more pure. It’s the refreshing spring bubbling up from the rocks, the trickle that will become a great river meandering to the sea. It’s the beginning of some new emotional journey. It’s the first flush of love and the aching love of life. It’s a pure feeling. It’s the Holy Grail.

Reading: The Ace of Cups represents a spring, a fountain, and the opening up of emotions. It signifies love of every kind, from romantic love to friendship. If the card is reversed then something is damming the water supply, leading to stagnation. Unlock the channels. Remember how to feel.

Wealth

Nine of Swords

Worry; anxiety; nightmares

Page 90

Description: A sleeping solider is having a nightmare. Unarmoured, he fends off nine swords and seven rocks.

Interpretation: Have you ever awakened from a dream so terrible that you sit bolt upright, your body shaking? We all get nightmares from time to time. We all suffer occasional bouts of insomnia, kept awake by churning worries in our busy mind.

Here, a solider fast asleep but we’re privy to his nightmares. He’s hounded by nine swords that chop at him, this way and that, and he has only his bare arms to fend them off. His armour lies below him, useless. Where on earth did he leave his swords? Can’t anyone hear his cries for help? It’s a classic anxiety dream.

Those birds may be coming in viciously to peck at him, but they might also be there to show that his worries are as insubstantial as air. Dreams are important. As an ENglish magician, you should pay close attention to them. At the same time, worrying endlessly about our problems when we ought to be sleeping won’t help you or anyone. It’s tempting to think that if we just go over a difficult situation, one more time, we might be able to puzzle it out. This card says otherwise.

Reading: Something is worrying you, but going over the problem again and again isn’t helping. If the card is reversed, then you might be having night terrors or insomnia. Remember that, at night, everything seems ten time worse than it actually is. In the morning, those birds will seem insignificant.

Elder Futhark Rune

From The Rune Site

Dagaz

Sound: “d”
Stands for: Day
Color: Yellow
Casting meaning: Dagaz represents a stability between opposites, such as light and dark. It can stop harmful energy from getting to you but at the same time allow the good energy to slip through so that you can make good use of it.

Witches’ Rune

From The Summer Goddess Book of Shadows

The Sun

Always a good omen, the Sun Rune means something of value is coming your way. You can look forward to taking a bold step, embarking in a new direction.

Some may be carried out of their daily grind by unexpected and fortunate events. Other will be made aware of added responsibility and will have to deal with it.

Expect public promotions and public affairs. Look to be amazed, dazzled or even shocked by scandals. An older person, or person of authority could have the answers you are now seeking.

Accept your position as a mover and shaker of the world. For you, the time is right to head for the spotlight.

Ogham

From Ogham Symbol Gallery

Onn/Ohn

O is Onn, or Ohn, and represents the Gorse bush, sometimes called Furze. This yellow, flowery shrub grows on moors all year long, and is full of nectar and pollen. It’s a food source for many animals–the stalks are munched on by grazing livestock–but eventually Furze is set on fire. This controlled burn allows old deadwood to be gotten rid of, and clears the way for new life to begin. Gorse (Furze) represents long-term thinking and planning–knowing that sometimes we have to do without in order to gain things in the future. Gorse is a determined sort of plant that always comes back, and so it is also connected with perseverance and hope.

In some pieces of Celtic folklore, the Gorse is used as a protective barrier. Planting it around one’s home would keep the Sidhe away, and it can be shaped into a broom for sweeping away negative influences.

Ohn Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Whatever you’ve been looking for is right around the corner–keep pursuing your goals, because they are within your reach. If you aren’t sure what path you should be on or which direction you should head, sit down and make a list of goals. Figure out the destination, and then you’ll be able to focus on the journey.

Magical Aspects: Your spiritual journey has provided you with an abundance of gifts. Don’t keep these blessings to yourself–share them with others! If you’ve been asked to take on a role as leader or mentor, now is the time to do so.

Animal Spirit Guide or Helper

Today’s Animal Spirt Guide card comes from Messages from Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer Copyright 2008

Cardinal

“The polarities of your spiritual pursuits and physical pleasures are out of balance, so do whatever is necessary to bring them back into equilibrium”

Pages 24 to 26

When on a spiritual path, it’s easy to idealize what being spiritual means. It can become a rigid mental imprint upon which you judge anything that varies from your conceptualization of what “being spiritual” is suppose to be about. This includes not only another person’s practices and beliefs, but your own. Falling short of this idealism leads to either assuming a righteous and arrogant position with others, or when self-imposed, elicits guilt and shame.

This spiritual perfectionism can make you reticent about enjoying the pleasures of the material world, as well as those of your physical body. The Earth Herself provides a dazzling and sensual panorama of experiences to be directly encountered through the physical senses. Yet for many, truly enjoying the pleasures of senses of sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell can be fraught with worry, anxiety, guilt, and shame—products of early childhood religious and/or cultural conditioning. Others become so entangled in the world of senses that it becomes their god, and their spiritual core is lost to materiality.

To be polarized in one direction or another takes you either to lofty heights and iridescent abstractions that are completely ungrounded, or else causes you to become caught up in the glue of the mundane world without the guiding light of Spirit to provide a locus of authority. With the blessing of your awareness, you can redirect your thoughts and actions towards that which brings greater balance and fluidity between two polarities.

Days of the Week Correspondences

Friday

Why are this Sunday, and Monday Daily Divination Journal Different? Where Are the Other Posts?

I am working at a carnival on the weekends throughout the summer because I need the extra money. Which does not give me enough time to pull and write up all four tarot cards as I do during the week. For this Sunday and Monday the only tarot card will be for a General reading. It is hard to post stuff for Melbourne, Victoria, Australia which is 17 hours a head in the southern hemisphere going by my Central Daylight Savings time in the northern hemisphere. I know this sounds confusing and believe me it is. Maybe explaining it this way makes it easier for everyone to understand, I hope,  for people in the southern hemisphere to get the Daily Correspondence Digest and the Daily Divination Journal at 7:00 AM AEST I have to have the posts ready to go by 4:00 PM CDT the day before. So to have Monday’s posts to be done for the southern hemisphere to wake up to I would have to be at my computer on Sunday putting the post to go live at 4:00 PM CDT Sunday afternoon in the northern hemisphere which is 7:00 AM AEST in the southern hemisphere. Since I won’t be home Sunday afternoon I have to have 3 days worth of posts done by Friday evening in the northern hemisphere. The Daily Correspondence Digest will have all of the same information it has in it any other day of the week.

Next week I will work on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday posts broken up through Tuesday to Friday so I can bring you all 4 tarot card draws.

I feel it is more important to give you the Digest and Journal than the other posts I do for this Saturday, Sunday, and Monday and to give you extra things like spells, or some type of witchcraft information. I will try to get some of this posted but am not sure that I will have the time needed to do them.

Have a great weekend and I will be back with the full Divination Journal and the extra posts on Tuesday, July 13th because I will be getting them ready on Monday, July 12th.

A Thought for Today and For Your Listening Pleasure

Today, dear Sisters, Brothers and Guest, I leave you with this thought

We as pagans learn to listen to Mother Earth among other Gods and Goddesses. No matter what path we follow we are all keepers of Mother Earth. I feel it is our duty to teach others the importance of living in harmony with Mother Earth and to help stop her destruction be it as simple as throwing trash on the ground instead of a trash receptacles to using fracking to pull natural gas out of her.

Blessed be

The Earth is Our Mother by Libana

 

One Way to Write a Spell

images (11)

When writing a spell the one thing that will affect it the most is the intent you have when writing and chanting it. There are certain things every spell should have in it. A spell also does not just affect the person casting it but has long-range effects you may never know about. This is why I will never do a spell that affects another person or living thing’s free will, such as a spell to make someone fall in love with a specific person.

You should never cast a spell, even a healing spell, for or on someone without their permission and/or knowledge.

Before casting a spell have what you desire it to do firmly in your mind, even visualize the outcome if you can. This helps the spell be stronger and gives it more chance in coming to fruition.

When writing the spell the things it should include are:

Who – Who is the spell for or who is it going to effect

What – What specifically is the spell for and what do you want the outcome of it to be

When – When do you want the spell to start working – immediately, tomorrow, next week, etc

How – How is the spell suppose to work – is it suppose to bring something to you or send something away?

Where – This can mean 2 things either where you will do the spell or where is the spell suppose to work.

Always ask yourself WHY am I writing this spell? What do I want the end result from it to be? When do I want it to happen? Who do I want it to happen to and how do I want it to happen? If  you are a novice Witch if you copy nothing else from this post into your Book of Shadows please copy the preceding two sentences. It gives you all the parts you need to include in a spell.

Tarot Cards

Today’s Tarot Card Reading come from The English Magic Tarot by Rex Van Ryn, Steve Dooley and Andy Letcher Copyright 2015 (The unfamiliar terms used with this deck is in England’s English)

 

General

King of Swords – A Court Card

The price of success; the cruel logic of revolution; despotism

Page 95

Description: A solider has won his battles. He stands by the crown and executioner’s block.

Interpretation: Here’s Oliver Cromwell, who ended up toppling the king and ruling England as monarch in all but name. Behind his the block on which he had Charles 1 executed. Between his feet is the crown. He’s won! So why’s he looking so rueful?

In the distance we see a bucking horse, the same horse that threw the Knight of Swords from his saddle. Ah, so the Knight was Cromwell! Well now the battle’s over. He’s got what he wanted and now he must live by the consequences. In Cromwell’s case, he ended up becoming a killer and the very kind of despot that he fought against in the first place. He should have read Shakespeare: “{Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.”

The card is a warning then to be careful what you wish for. You may have good, reasonable cause—yet there’ll be consequences that could strip you of the happiness you hoped for. The chopping block indicates that they’ll be bloody. Cromwell could have stayed home on his farm. We probably wouldn’t remember him, but he might have had a longer, easier, and happier life. He might have died with his conscience clear.

Reading: Be careful what you wish for. It’s much harder being a king than it looks.

 

Love

The High Priestess – 2 Major Arcana

Dreams; psychic powers; mythos

 Page 24

Description: An older woman plunges her hands into a river. The light of the nearly full moon is reflected in the water. A Younger woman rises up from the depths.

Interpretation: Have you ever been stopped in your tracks by the moon? The feeling is one of enchantment, as if the veils that separate the worlds have been lifted momentarily. One may feel a strong urge to curtsy or bow. The High Priestess embodies that feeling. If the Magician is all about craft, then the High Priestess speaks of intuition, of dream, and the possibility of psychic powers. If the Magician represents logos, the power of the word, then the High Priestess represents mythos, the stuff beyond words. When we stumble across the High Priestess, the hair on our neck stands up and we are stopped in our tracks.

The writer Robert Graves was a lover of mythos. He always bowed nine times to the new moon, while turning a silver coin. He gave us the idea that ancient cultures had worshipped a triple moon goddess: Maiden, Mother, and Crone. We see all three here. The Crone plunges her hands into a reflection of the nearly full moon (the Mother), and is met by the Maiden, who raises up from the water, as if to kiss her. The river is the Thames, chosen not just because it is the most characteristic of English rivers, but because in Oxford the Thames is called the Isis. Isis, the Graeco-Egyptian lunar goddess, is the deity most associated with the High Priestess.

Reading: The High Priestess invites us to pay attention to mythos. Perhaps the answer to your question will come in dreams or the ink-black surface of a scrying bowl.

Health

The Devil – 15 Major Arcana

The shadow; your nemesis

Pages 50 and 51

Description: The Devil stands on the edge of a cliff, under the light of the full moon. A naked couple are walking helplessly towards him.

Interpretation: People dread the Devil, and not without good reason. Two thousand years of Christianity have enshrined him as the epitome of evil. Just look at the couple coming over the hill. Their night of illicit pleasure has turned into a 1970s folk horror movie. The Devil is drawing them inexorably towards their terrible end.

However, it’s silly to suppose evil comes from anywhere but from inside us. The devil represents all our uncomfortable feelings, the ones the evoke guilt and anger, secret and narcissistic fantasies. He’s our shadow side. No wonder we externalize him. It’s so much easier to blame someone else for our discomfort, to drive the scapegoat from the village. Trouble is, when we do, we find we’re still dangling from the devil’s puppet strings.

In narrative times, the devil is there to test us. Every thesis needs its antithesis. Every hero needs a villain. Where would James Bond be without Ernst Stavro Blofeld? Batman without the Joker? Luke without Darth Vader? The devil is the adversary we have to best, the obstacle we have to overcome. Is he dangerous? Damn right! Adventure means nothing if it isn’t risky. But we overcome him by trying not to banish him, but by bring him into the clear light of day.

Reading: The Devil indicates a challenge, an obstacle to be overcome. That might be an external obstacle, a person standing in your way for example, or it might mean some part of yourself that you’re refusing to acknowledge.

 

Wealth

Temperance – 14 Major Arcana

Stillness; balance

Pages 48 and 49

Description: A woman dips her head into a pool. She’s framed by two willow trees. She holds two cups behind her back and pours liquid from one to the other. A big cat stands on a tumulus behind her.

Interpretation: Here, everything is in balance. The willow trees show summer and winter in perfect equipoise. The woman is lightly balanced between earth and water, all the while performing some extraordinary feat of juggling behind her back. Is that cloth pouring from her cups, or water? Blood, even? She doesn’t spill a single drop. You can imagine the contents running back and forth from one to the other eternally.

One of the four, medieval cardinal virtues, Temperance has had something of bad press late. Oscar Wilde famously quipped, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.” When I think of temperance, I imagine self-righteous Sunday morning moralizers wagging a finger at our Saturday night misdemeanors, or of a sweaty Sergeant Howie in The Wicker Man, slapping the wall, as he desperately attempts to reign in his cardinal desires. If only he hadn’t. Yet the moderation depicted here is effortless, requiring neither self-flagellation nor self-congratulation. It speaks of a much easier kind of balance, the balance on which the universe rests.

All extremes flow into each other. Star are born and die. Summer becomes winter becomes summer again. Full becomes empty. The wheel turns. Accept this simple truth and nothing can knock you from your feet.

Reading: Temperance encourages us to find balance in our lives, the still waters of this place. If reversed, things have become out of balanced, perhaps dangerously so. Let the governing tides of the universe draw things back to equilibrium again.

Witches’ Rune

From The Summer Goddess Book of Shadows

The Moon

Relying on old ways of doing things could impede your success if you do not handle the moon’s intuitive energy properly.

Drawing the Moon Stone suggests wisdom gained through experience of memory, but does not mean you should stay in a rut or stick to the kinds of habits that only forfeit your success.

The idea of family, home and ancestors is important now. Such memories may well be the key you need to unlock a certain puzzle that is troubling you.

Drawing the Moon Stone says that there will be a
sudden shift in the circumstances surrounding the immediate question. Bide your time before initiating any kind of action.

Now is the time to pay attention to your dreams.

Ogham

From Ogham Symbol Gallery 

Amhancholl

Ae (sometimes represented as X or Xi), is Amhancholl or Eamhancholl, associated with Witch Hazel. This natural astringent is purifying and cleansing. The word Eamhancholl literally translates to “twin of Hazel”, so there is a strong connection to C–Coll in the Ogham. When Amhancholl appears, it’s usually an indicator that cleansing and purification is necessary or has taken place.

From a purely medicinal standpoint, Witch Hazel has long been used as a cleanser and astringent. Native American tribes turned it into a poultice which was used to treat swelling and tumors. Amongst the early settlers, midwives arriving in the New World found that it could be used to prevent sepsis following childbirth or an abortion. Today, it’s still in use as a treatment for skin inflammations, such as insect bites, mild burns, and even hemorrhoids.

Amhancholl Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means it’s time for a cleansing. Sometimes this is a physical cleansing of our Self, but often it applies to emotional clutter and baggage. Smudge your home, get rid of all the negative energies around you, and allow yourself to purify both your body and your mind.

Magical Aspects: This is a good indicator that you need to do a re-evaluation of your spiritual life. Are you studying things that no longer interest you? Are you hanging on to books or other magical items that you know you’ll never need–or worse, that you really dislike? If you’re feeling stagnant, or that you’re drifting a bit on a spiritual level, when this symbol appears it probably means you need to rethink your priorities. What are your spiritual goals? Do a cleansing ritual, and help yourself begin anew.

Numerology Number

From NUMEROLOGY SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Among the nine single-digit numbers, the 1 holds a special place in numerology.

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 1: THE PRIMAL FORCE

From a spiritual perspective, the 1 is the number of creation – the primal force from which all other numbers spring forth. Some say once you truly understand the place and function of this elemental number, enlightenment will be yours.

This statement doesn’t apply to a Numerologist’s perspective alone, but perhaps it’s a good place to start since the personality of the number 1 aligns nicely with its elevated spiritual symbolism.

The 1 is a doer, a powerful force that produces results.

The 1 is aggressive – a necessary trait for creating, and not allowing anything to limit its potential. The 1 is the spearhead, always in the forefront directing and leading others.

The shape of this number reflects its meaning; the 1 walks upright with pride and purpose – strong, determined, and unwavering with a specific goal in mind. The 1 is capable of turning ideas into reality – pushing obstacles aside or simply drilling right through them.

The 1 tends to have a simple, straightforward view of life, heedless of its many complexities.

An individual with the dynamic 1 trusts their ability to separate right from wrong, doesn’t waste time on abstract ideas, and rarely follows a path that isn’t in line with their result-oriented goal. The 1 is no preacher, no philosopher, spiritual explorer, nor dreamer – and certainly not an idealist. They are pragmatic, ruthless conquerors, and warriors extraordinaire. The 1 is individualistic and independent to a fault. They will attempt to force their viewpoint on you but have no desire to hear yours.

The 1 can be confrontational, jealous, and exceedingly stubborn, but also courageous and willing to try anything new (with promise) even at great risk. They have a sense of honor and responsibility that demands respect and are the first to defend injustice and hypocrisy.

Befriend a 1 and you have a friend for life.

Fortunately, the 1 has a great capacity for humor, often self-depreciating, so you can poke fun at your friend and not worry about hurt feelings. But don’t cater to them to win love or friendship or you will lose their respect. Stand up to a 1 and you may lose the fight, but you’ll gain admiration. Working for a 1 you will be pushed to the limit, abused at all hours, and incapable of living up to unreasonable expectations. But you will also become the best you can be.

When in trouble, you want a friend with a strong 1 on your side, and you won’t find a braver partner or a more dedicated protector. But, if the 1 is your enemy, you could be crushed without mercy. And be forewarned, the number 1 is the most difficult of all lovers, demanding, jealous, confrontational, and impatient.

If you have a 1 in your core numbers, your happiness and sense of satisfaction will come from your work more than any other source.

“Keep your sense of humor, and don’t take things so seriously”

Pages 102 to 104

It’s so tempting to view life in all of its many manifestations, permutations, and variations as something to be taken quite seriously, yet this is exactly the opposite of what you need to do right now. No matter what the situation, look for the humor in it. It may take time to find something, but if you look for it with this attitude in mind, you begin to see the absurdities and ironies inherent in whatever shows up in life, even in the darkest circumstances. Maintaining a healthy sense of humor about most experiences causes you to be lighter in spirit, to smile unabashedly, and to appreciate life that much more. Turn that scowl upside down by doing what makes you openly laugh.

Of course there are certainly times that require a more serious demeanor. Tragedies or traumatic experiences don’t call for cheerfulness and humor. When events occur, appropriate social restrictions apply that demand the expression of emotions congruent with the circumstances. However, these instances are temporary and all like things, will soon pass. Other than these kinds of situations, life’s ironies and absurdities abound. Rather than feeling personally victimized by these vagaries take a deep breath, see the humor in the situation, and have a laugh!

Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.
