Four of Water

The explanation of Four of Water Osho Zen Tarot

The woman in Four of Water Osho Zen Tarot is showing a soft smile on her face. In fact, she was just observing what the mind was doing; not judging, not trying to stop nor analyzing them. She only saw them as passersby, like a ripple on the lake. And the antics of the mind are always hilarious, they keep jumping up and down, twisting in many ways, trying to attract attention and entice us into the game.

Being able to develop abilities in creating a distance from the mind is one of the great favors. Those are the things we do when we meditate, chant, or repeat an affirmation, but we only look at it, as if they belong to someone else’s mind. Right now, you are ready to create this distance, to watch the show without getting caught up in the drama. Let’s immerse yourself in the simple freedom of Turning In whenever possible and knack of meditation will develop and deepen in you.

The energy of Four of Water Osho Zen Tarot based on Osho’s teachings

Turning inwards is not a turning at all. Going inwards is not a going at all. Turning inwards simply means that you have been running after this desire and that, and you have been running and running and you have been coming again and again to frustration.

That each desire brings misery, that there is no fulfillment through desire. That you never reach anywhere, that contentment is impossible.

Seeing this truth, that running after desires takes you nowhere, you stop. Not that you make any effort to stop. If you make any effort to stop it is again running, in a subtle way. You are still desiring–maybe now it is desirelessness that you desire. If you are making an effort to go in, you are still going out. Any effort can only take you out, outwards.

All journeys are outward journeys, there is no inward journey. How can you journey inwards? You are already there, there is no point in going. When going stops, journeying disappears; when desiring is no more clouding your mind, you are in. This is called turning in. But it is not a turning at all, it is simply not going out.

Hexagram 61

Chung Fu / Inner Truth

The gentle Wind ripples the Lake’s surface:
The Superior Person finds common ground between points of contention, wearing away rigid perspectives that would lead to fatal error.

Pigs and fishes.
You may cross to the far shore.
Great fortune if you stay on course.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The subject of this hexagram discovers a key to Tranquility by first gaining insight into his own nature, then turning that vision outward.
By resolving inner conflicts and being at peace with himself, he learns to gain insight into others.
In effect, he enters another, sees with the other’s eyes, listens with the other’s ears, feels with the other’s heart.
He then returns to his own center, with new perspective and understanding.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Quiert

Quiert

Delight, respite, celebration

Tree: Apple (Malus spp.)

Letter: Q

The apple is an ancient symbol of bounty, harmony, and completion. True to symbolism, Quiert indicates a time of well-deserved rest, or at least that you deserve rest even if you are unable to have enough of it. Constant activity goes against the flow of nature. Our society, which seeks to progress at an ever-faster pace until the human race metastasizes across the universe, has got it all wrong. Slowing down is the appropriate action in many cases, for instance after a period of activity or at the culmination of a big project.

There is great delight in the smallest periods of rest, whether that means taking the time to thank the person at the restaurant for making your sandwich (just because you paid for it with money does not mean verbal gratitude goes unappreciated) or to give a firm, polite “no” when someone deliberately or unwittingly threatens your peace of mind by asking too much of you. Quiert speaks of the sweetness of small human gestures and petite graces. Without them, civilization wouldn’t be quite so civilized, nor would it be as worthy of holding together.

Quiert might also indicate a longer resting/healing time for you or for someone else, or that rest is needed. Quiert says, “Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses. Observe. Live in the moment instead of always planning for the perfect future or reliving the past.” It is a marker of gratitude in general, and the slowness required to fully sense the world around us.

Questions when you draw Quiert:

From Tarotx –

This card comes from the Tarot De Marseille

7 Of Pentacles

The upright meaning of 7 De Deniers

In this card, we see a triangle in the center pointing upwards, framed by four pentagrams at the four corners, reaching the state of materialized spirituality and vice versa. The idea has applied to action and brought about money. This amount is used to fund research and search for information and to help people grow. This card evokes generosity, victorious sports performances, in-depth knowledge of the body, and cognitive-based physical strength. This could be a compassionate person, a patron, a genius businessman, or a global success of a company.

The 7 De Deniers shows that you have a strong desire to invest in things that will bring long-term benefits. You understand the importance of spending time and energy at the moment to reap the benefits in the longer term, and you are not necessarily looking for quick wins as such. You also want to focus your attention on the right areas that will allow you to get more for your money instead of wasting time on areas that…

The reversed meaning of 7 De Deniers

The negative aspect focuses on the disconnection between body and soul, spiritual disdain and overestimation of material life, slavery, greed for money, multinational companies destroying the environment, drug organizations and pharmaceutical monopolies.

The 7 De Deniers in reverse tells that your efforts can be scattered right now, and you start wondering if you are investing in the right areas. You may bet for things that will not work. So, the opportunity here is to review your current and planned investments (cash and time investments) and make sure that you will receive a return. Let’s use a priority system to ensure that you do not waste time or money in areas that will bring little results. 

Similarly, this reversed card indicates that while you can continue to invest a lot of energy in a specific situation, you will not be able to reap the fruits you expect. As such, it invites you to prioritize your activities carefully. You need to do a…

Eadha

Limits, prudence, the usefulness of fear

Tree: Aspen (Populus spp.)

Letter: E

Picture a tall tree that seems to tremble when blown by wind — that’s the quaking aspen. Like birch, aspen grows in groups, which brings to mind the comfort of being surrounded or power in numbers. Pulling this Ogham says that contemplating and respecting limits is the best strategy. For instance, when you are angry about something, allow yourself to fully admit and feel your rage, but bring down a limit when it comes to expressing rage. Honesty and analysis of your emotions, especially of anger, will transform anger into a tool for self-improvement instead of blind self-destruction.

Fear is another limiting force. An excess of fear can be crippling. When fear goes too far, the result is agoraphobia/severe anxiety…

Keywords: achiever, wise, intense, idealistic, resourceful, passionate. If expressed negatively: overly emotional, destructive, dramatic.

As lovers: It’s all or nothing with these lovers. They don’t seem capable of doing things halfway, and that includes their relationships. They are generally bent on achieving in life, and their sheer intensity is something people either love or hate

Seven Of Pentacles

LShe stood in a luxuriant grass garden, where she dedicated it to special care. She is the forest guardian, a part of this place, the Garden of Eden that she created herself. The peach trees finally bear fruit, a source of magical energy proliferating all over the world. Peaches are a fruit of summer and of long relaxing days. Their nectar is as sweet as honey. The specific sweetness that comes from their fruit flowed evenly from the tongue into the throat, evoking memories of hot summer days.

Should I pick them or not?” She was confused, the patterned ripples stirred on her body. Placing her hands on sweet fruits, she was ready to pick them at any time. They shrugged vaguely as if she was holding the heart of the tree, weakly trembling along the branches of the tree. Are the peaches still juicy and sweet like honey, once picked from the branches? Or would they become as faint, exhausted as the mediocre fruits in her basket?

As lovers: Number ones take the lead in love. Love and/or the chase is of utmost importance to these lovers. There can be self-centeredness, however. These lovers are willing to experiment, and they can be quite exciting–they can also require a lot of excitement because they can bore easily.

Chên / Thunder

Thunder echoes upon Thunder, commanding reverence for its father Heaven:
In awe of Heaven’s majestic power, the Superior Person looks within and sets his life in order.
Thunder mingles with startled screams of terror for a hundred miles around.
As the people nervously laugh at their own fright, the devout presents the sacrificial chalice with nary a drop of wine spilt.
Deliverance

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

A thunderbolt of Cosmic judgement crashes to earth.
For the common person, it’s just a momentary fright soon forgotten, its warning unfathomed and unheeded.
But to one who understands its significance, this thunder is a signal to awaken.
Centering the Self, seeking balance, the enlightened person will respect and align himself with this Higher Power, while his fellows remain subject to the whims of every passing storm.

Tarot Cards Vs. Playing Cards

1. Fortune Telling Tools of Tarot cards and Playing cards

Playing cards use the deck of 52 cards. Although it is known as the Western deck of cards, and currently there is no document proving the origin of this deck, it is assumed that card playing began in China at an early date before they eventually arrived in the West. Later on, Western fortune-telling became one of the Eastern divination categories, considered superstitious.
Tarot reading uses the deck of 78 cards. Tarot cards are from Europe, originally used for entertainment. Then, the occult associations in England and France have discovered the symbols on the card and used it for the interpretation of fate and prophecy. In the West, Tarot reading is very popular, professional and recognized.

Third eye, seeing the truth, clairvoyance, someone’s watching, the evil eye and protection

Two

Harmony is your nickname. You thrive in relationships – with your romantic partner, family, friends, coworkers, or even the salespeople at stores! You talk to everyone, you are down to earth and people love your presence. You are the life of the party! But sometimes, maintaining the peace in a relationship is so important to you that you forget who you are and make sacrifices that aren’t reciprocated. Learn to stand your ground and put your foot down when necessary. In matters of business, 2 is a great number for successful partnerships. If your life path number is 2, or if the digits of a date adds up to the number 2, know that it’s the best energy to enter into business agreements and create projects through teamwork. 2 is a wonderful omen for signing peace agreements between countries, making up for past mistakes between lovers, and to make any past wrongs right.

Ioho

Grace, death, letting go, endings, rest, the beauty of decay

Tree: Yew (Taxus spp.)

Letter: Y

Ioho symbolizes the acceptance of enduring realities and legacies of the past. If you draw Ioho, look for the end of a phase or cycle. Ioho suggests you are handling or will handle the matter at hand with dignity and grace.

Modern culture has spent a great deal of time running away from the ideas of death and decay as natural, welcome processes. As a result, we have a society obsessed with launching our species into space for fear of extinction, a medical industry bent on extending life long after it has ceased to have any quality, and a fixation on youth that motivates the middle aged to undergo brutal, grisly procedures in order to look twenty. When we frame aging (not just of human beings) in a sensible way, we understand that getting old isn’t so terrible. People age and die. Technologies change. Weeks become years. Eras fade away. Letting go is for the best.

Ioho is about accepting limits gracefully. We cannot control much…

The Lovers – A Major Arcana

Work: “Twins” – The Lovers is associated with Gemini in astrology. You may be feeling “confused” with a business relationship or a project at work. Everything seems to be decided quickly. You can analyze all the available information before making the best decision. Maybe, at first, you will find that something wrong going to happen but everything will be fine. But you should also be careful and do not let personal emotions interfere with decisions at work.

Sentiments: In a Tarot spread, number 6 often symbolizes deep love. If the Lovers appears, maybe true love will come in the future. It could be a new relationship or an event that creates a strong connection. You will be very happy. Everyone can see the aura of happiness that radiates from you. Even if this relationship just begins, the two of you can think about meeting each other’s family and getting married.

Finance: A romantic love story can make you lose control in terms of finances. Do not spend too much on luxury gifts. Money never guarantees a lasting relationship.

Healthy: This card signals that you are too confident about the energy source inside your body to ignore health problems. Do not overwork. In addition, your health may be is at risk of instability by an emotional disorder. Let’s keep everything in balance.

Saille

Sensitivity, receptivity, intuition, fluidity, flexibility

Tree: Willow (Salix spp.)

Letter: S

Intuition, fluidity, psychic phenomena, sensitivity, good timing. Heightened perception. Saille indicates the ability to let go of fixed ideas in favor of moving with what is appropriate for a particular phase of life. Being sensitive or empathic is a skill that is hard to balance, but it also gives you uncanny talents when it comes to choosing the right thing at the right time or place. It is necessary for great artists and musicians to be empaths, because it is their access to the unconscious that enables them to put the right color in the right place on a painting or hit the right note at the right time on their instrument. Drawing Saille means that a force within you is flowing in harmony with the unseen powers. Whether you are riding (figurative) white water rapids or growing in a peaceful garden, you are flexible and resilient to life’s curves and eddies. You bend like a willow, making the best decisions possible considering the circumstances of the phase you have entered. Understanding has become stored knowledge and within it a deep well of wisdom upon which to draw.

As lovers: Number Sixes have a deep dislike of discord and will generally work hard at keeping the peace. They are very attached to their homes and their families. At their best, they are devoted and stable partners who do whatever they can to maintain balance and harmony. At their worst, they take their peace-loving natures too far, and become lethargic, diplomatic to the point of superficiality, and jealous.

One Way of Reading Druid Ogham

About

What is Ogham?

Ogham is a divination system like Tarot cards or runes that is also a system of writing used by the ancient Celts known as Druids.  Ogham letters (also called Fews) are made up of simple lines that can be inscribed on any convenient surface.  They are read from the bottom up.

Each Ogham letter stands for a type of tree, and the characteristics of that tree (prickly like holly, flexible like willow) grant the Ogham its insights into human nature. Just as each Tarot card should be studied for its individual meaning and its relationship to other cards, Ogham were meant to be studied one by one. This website is the product of my own discursive meditations with Ogham.

Individual Ogham letters are often engraved on sticks or printed on cards in order to use them for divination. To read Ogham as one would read Tarot cards or runes, any number of spreads can be utilized from asking a simple yes or no question where you pull a single Ogham stick/card to complex interpretations of a dozen Oghams thrown on a table or on the ground reveal the future depending on the angles at which they fall. I personally prefer a simple three Ogham reading. I do it every day sometime in the morning. In my mind, I ask the Ogham: “What do I need to know in order to make the best out of today?” and then reach my hand into the box where I keep my Ogham tiles. Then I pick three of them and lay them side by side as shown:

The Four of Wands card describe a couple dancing under a wreath hanging among four sticks. This wreath is similar to the kind that used in traditional Jewish ceremonies and therefore, it represents the time spent completing work and the satisfaction with achieving a goal. Surrounding them is a group of people, and behind them is a large castle which is also decorated with flowers. It seems to be a celebration, an opportunity to return home or a celebration from within the castle.

Phagos

Teaching, education, mastery, virtuosity, legacy

Tree: Beech (Fagus spp.)

Letter: Ph or F

Phagos is a reminder of the mental discipline it takes in the process of acquiring knowledge. When you get to the point of knowing a subject so well, you can teach it effortlessly, then you have mastered the subject on the mental plane, which reverberates through the other planes. Saturated knowledge is knowing a thing inside and out. Those who believe in reincarnation believe this is the kind of knowledge that does not go away when you shed one mortal body for the next one: for instance, a skilled midwife will stand a good chance of coming back as a competent ob/gyn who stumbles upon their talent in a seemingly random way. Or a lute player may be reborn and pick up the guitar at age twelve and learn it faster than any other kid in their class because of knowledge picked up in past lifetimes.

Numerology

Six

If your life path number is 6, you are someone who thinks, speaks and acts from the heart. You are sincere, loving, warm and affectionate. It would serve you to find a job where you can bring and apply these wonderful qualities, such as a kindergarten teacher, pediatrician, social worker, or a therapist. You are made for long-term relationships and family life. Shallow pursuits and one-night stands aren’t your thing. When you touch someone, it’s real. But because you are too focused on the relational aspects of your life, you may end up bringing those people who don’t care as much as you do, into your life. If the digits of a date add up to number 6, it’s a wonderful time to create love! Work on a universal theme, help poor communities in distant places or the homeless on your block. It’s the best time to be there for other people.

Do you see repeating number sequences several times during the day? They are angel numbers and you can see them everywhere. 1:31 on your watch, 131$ payment for shopping, duration of your phone call, licence plate on the car and so on.

Possibilities to see angel numbers in your life are endless. If you keep your eyes open, you will notice them. They repeat daily, sometimes you can see the same number even for weeks! It can mean a lot and you can use these messages for your advantage. On this page you will find true meaning to each one of them.

These messages are from your guardian angel or Higher Powers standing by your side to guide you through specific phase of life. These powers from above can change very often or you can have the same one your entire life. It depends on your thoughts, desires and wishes. Higher Powers tend to have specific sphere of activity. You like sports and you devote all of your daily time to it? Sport related powers will find you and help you archieve your goals. More skilfull and powerfull you become, the closer relation between you and them. Workers will attract other powers and scientists completely different ones. Later in your life, if you decide to focus all of your time and energy to love instead. Sport, work or science specialists will go help elsewhere and you will attract Higher Powers of love instead. It’s that simple.

Rowan sticks were often used to carve protective charms on, and hung over a door to prevent evil spirits from entering. The berries, when split in half, reveal a small pentagram inside. The Rowan indicates protection, as well as knowledge and insight about what is taking place in your surroundings.

Luis Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Keep your awareness high, and go with your intuition when it comes to the people and events in your life. Trust your judgment, and don’t allow yourself to be lulled into a false sense of security.

Magical Aspects: Keep yourself true to your spirituality, staying grounded even in times of doubt. This will help protect you from that which might bring you emotional, physical or spiritual harm.

Numerology

Eight

If your life path number is 8, you are motivated, hardworking and you get things done. You love budgeting and you are always on top of your finances. You save for retirement and you are a homeowner, not a renter. You read the economy well – you would make a great investment advisor, funds manager, or a CFO. Your methodical and numerical thinking has to be put aside when it comes to love. In love, one plus one can make just one – that is if you believe in soul mates! You may have an intellectual bent and you may be a bit stubborn, but if you can let go, love will find you. You are one to maintain relationships. If the digits of a date add up to the number 9, that day or time is wonderful grounds for working on the mathematics and the logic behind what you want. Make plans and to-do lists.

Eight of Pentacles

The Eight of Pentacles showed a young man carefully sculpting five-pointed stars into each coin. He has completed six coins and there were two more. Apparently, he was very focused on his work. He isolated himself from others (the town in the picture) to focus on the main task. This card reflects a time when you are focusing all your energy on something and making sure everything is as perfect as possible

Runes

From The Rune Site

Medieval Runes of Healing and Magick Set

For almost all other rune sets you should be able to find some divinatory meanings for each rune in its set. This is where the Medieval runes differ from the rest. They were never used for divination purposes and are actually not a rune row in their own right. What they are is individual runic symbols that hold magickal properties of protection and healing. They are probably the least known of the rune sets and probably one set that we may never fully understand how and what they were used for. They are said to originate in the Middle Ages and are largely thought to be Germanic or Dutch in origin.

The images and shapes of this set (shown here) are not that different than the other runes that we’ve seen before. But why is that? If these runes were used for magickal protection and healing, why not just use the protection runes or healing runes from an already developed set? The answer to that is not clear and may never be. It could be that the images for the runes were chosen because each rune was said to relate to a god or goddess. If that’s true then setting them apart from the other runes may be the reason why the shape was changed only a little. If you wanted the power of a god to help protect you or your home then it may be wise to use a protection rune from an established rune set. However, if you wanted to make sure that the rune held a little more power and possibly some magick to it, then it may have been the intent of the user to modify the rune just slightly enough so that the image was not identical, but still showed the original rune, therefore adding the element of magick to the rune. This is of course a lot of speculation and guesswork since there is no solid evidence of why these runes were only used for magickal purposes and not in casting.

Sound: “sz” as the sound in “ease”
Stands for: Wolf-hook (Ancient Iron Weapon)
Magick/Healing use: Used to bind and eliminate harmful influences

Romance

The Romance Rune suggests a great desire surfacing in your life or becoming infatuated with a person different from the people you normally associate with.

Turning up this stone indicates being drawn into situations or affairs that defy reason or being drawn away by forces outside of your control.

This stone carries with it forces that drive us beyond our usual good sense.

It indicates good luck in the short term as it denoted getting fired up by daring new plans and options.

To read the rest from Spirit Animal – Coyote

Coyote

The coyote totem is strikingly paradoxical and is hard to categorize. It’s a teacher of hidden wisdom with a sense of humor, so the messages of the coyote spirit animal may paradoxically appear in the form of a joke or trickery. Don’t be tricked by the foolish appearances. The spirit of the coyote may remind you to not take things too seriously and bring more balance between wisdom and playfulness.

Coyote Symbolism

The coyote often symbolizes the trickster or joker. However, its symbolism is associated with a deep magic of life and creation. It can be considered as having the following meanings:

  • Jokester
  • Adaptability
  • Reveal the truth behind illusion and chaos
  • Playfulness
  • Paradoxical nature, personality difficult to categorize
  • Beware of the dark side of things and play on your resources

Knight of Pentacles

The Knight of Pentacles represents the work, effort, and responsibility after the Page of Pentacles has set its dreams. This Knight sat on a large horse in the middle of a field. He holds a coin in his hand and his eyes reflect thought and consideration. Knight always takes the necessary effort to fulfill his dreams. He is building the foundation for his dreams and goals.

The detailed description of the Knight of Pentacles

On the positive side, Knight once he has made up his mind taking action, he would not give up. He persistently pursues his goal and has great endurance and ability to devote as a diligent warrior. He completes each job to the final detail. Besides, he is careful, never neglected, always realistic, and says no to the false promises.

On the negative side, the Knight of Pentacles is somewhat stubborn and slow. He has no sense of humor. He always gives first priority to work, tends to lack flexibility and easily obsesses by small details, is stubborn when making mistakes, refuses to give in even if he is not right, and will never admit that he is wrong. He does not like change or risk and his views are often negative.

Ur

Sound: “u”, “o”, “y”, “w”

Straith/Straif

This symbol, used for the sound St, is Straith (sometimes seen as Straif), the Blackthorn tree. A symbol of authority and control, the Blackthorn is connected to strength and triumph over adversity. Blackthorn is a tree (although some might argue it’s more of a really big shrub) of winter, and its berries only ripen after the first frost. White flowers appear in the spring, and the bark is black and thorny.

On a medicinal level, Blackthorn berries–sloe berries–are brewed to make a tonic (this is what Sloe Gin is made from). The tonic can be used as a laxative and/or diuretic, as well as a skin astringent. In folklore, the Blackthorn has a fairly unpleasant reputation. An English legend refers to a devastating winter as a “Blackthorn Winter.” It also represents the darker side of magic and witchcraft. Because it’s a plant that becomes hardy when all around it is dying, it is associated with the Dark Mother, the Crone aspect of the Goddess, particularly the Cailleach in some parts of Scotland and Ireland. There is also a strong connection to the Morrighan, because of Blackthorn’s association with the blood and death of warriors. In fact, in early Celtic culture, the Blackthorn was popular for its use in the cudgel shillelagh.

Straith Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to change. Your plans may be altered, or even destroyed, so plan to deal with it. The appearance of Straith often indicates the influence of external forces.

Magical Aspects: You’re at the beginning of a new journey, and there will be some surprises–possibly unpleasant ones–along the way. Overcoming these obstacles will give you strength. Realize that you–and your life–are changing.

Numerology

Seven

If your life path number is 7, your life will be predominantly influenced by your mind. Whether it’s intellectual pursuits, philosophical discourses, or a deep spiritual/meditative life through your 7th chakra, you are made for it. You would make a great professor, philosopher or a guru. Because you are too much in the head, you may find yourself alien to matters of the heart. It isn’t easy – you just don’t get the clues, or don’t know how to give them out. You avoid emotions, and if your partner feels them naturally, you may blame them for being hysterical, when in fact they are being just natural. If the digits of a date add up to number 7, know that it’s a wonderful time to cook up ideas, to write a paper, to post on social media, or meditate.

General

Page of Pentacles

The Page of Pentacles shows a young man, standing alone in the middle of fertile land. There was a lush forest of fruit trees behind him, promising a plentiful harvest. He walked slowly and did not know anything about the surrounding area. He focused on nothing but the gold coin in his hands. The sky is bright and everything is going very well on the path leads to his future success.

In Tarot court cards, The Page is a card of new beginnings, inspiration and early stages of a creative project. Pentacles correspond to the element of Earth in Alchemy. Therefore, the fact that the Page treasures the gold coin shows an awareness, appreciating the value of money not only physically but also about the related needs such as health, food, and clothes.

Ifin/Iphin

Io (sometimes Ph) is Ifin or Iphin, the Pine tree. This evergreen was once known as the “sweetest of wood,” and its needles can be brewed into tea which provides a good source of Vitamin C. Pine is associated with clarity of vision, and alleviation of guilt. When Ifin appears, it may indicate feelings of guilt that need to be put aside, or unresolved conflicts that need closure.

In Scotland, the Pine was a symbol of the warrior, and in some stories it was planted over the graves of those fallen in battle. More often than not, the Pine was used as a building material, and it continues to be used as such today.

Ifin Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means you need to stop beating yourself up over feelings of guilt. Did you say something hurtful, and damage a relationship? Now’s the time to mend it. Make amends for mistreating others, whether it was deliberate or accidental.

Magical Aspects: Use any residual bits of guilt to bring about change. To do this, you’ll need to focus on the root cause of your feelings. Once you find the source of your discomfort or anxiety, channel that negative energy, turn it around, and use it as a tool of transformation. When this symbol appears, it may also be a hint that you’re not seeing things as clearly as you should be. Put aside emotions and look at things from an intellectual standpoint–in other words, don’t let the heart rule over the brain.

Numerology

Six

Numerology meaning of 6 

If your life path number is 6, you are someone who thinks, speaks and acts from the heart. You are sincere, loving, warm and affectionate. It would serve you to find a job where you can bring and apply these wonderful qualities, such as a kindergarten teacher, pediatrician, social worker, or a therapist. You are made for long-term relationships and family life. Shallow pursuits and one-night stands aren’t your thing. When you touch someone, it’s real. But because you are too focused on the relational aspects of your life, you may end up bringing those people who don’t care as much as you do, into your life. If the digits of a date add up to number 6, it’s a wonderful time to create love! Work on a universal theme, help poor communities in distant places or the homeless on your block. It’s the best time to be there for other people.

August 18th Tarot Card

I am sorry that today i only have time to post a tarot card instead of the full Daily Divination Journal. I got up late and am out the door to go to work at the carnival. Tomorrow the full journal will be posted. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Tarot

Today’s Tarot card reading comes from The Celtic Dragon Tarot by D. J. Conway. With art done by Lisa Hunt. This deck is unique as the cards are never read in reverse.

9 of Wands

A Pause

A man holding a wand stands between two large Air dragons. His expression is on of tiredness but triumph. The magician has moved through many trials and tribulations to reach this moment of rest and success. Behind him is dark, twisted wood, the frightening and mysterious depths of the subconscious, where malicious faces of past lives or past experiences in this life may rise to haunt him. To succeed in his journey, he had to acknowledge past errors and build upon that experience. A steep stair leads back from where he stands into the woods, symbolizing that his journey through this life is not yet finished. However, at this moment he and the dragons stand in full sunlight, representing spiritual power. In a semi circle above the man’s head are eight wands, their tips flashing in the sunlight. If he can keep his willpower bright, he can ascend the steps without worry.

Divinatory Meaning: There is a pause in a difficult lifecycle, giving you a much needed rest. This is a time when you must carefully plan your next step. Success is in sight but more effort is needed.
