Six Of Fire

The Explanation of Six of Fire Osho Zen Tarot

This character in Six of Fire Osho Zen is clearly at the “top of the world” and the whole world is celebrating his success with ticker-tape parade!

Because you are willing to accept the recent challenges of life, you now – and will soon – enjoy the wonderful ride on the back of a successful tiger. Celebrate, enjoy, and share the joy with everyone – and remember: every colorful parade has an opening and an end. If you keep this in mind and squeeze every drop of happiness you are experiencing right now, you will be able to embrace the future without regret. However, don’t try to hold on to this moment, or wrap it in a plastic bag so that it lasts forever.

The greatest wisdom to keep in mind with all the phenomena in the parade of your life, whether at the peak or the abyss, is that “this too will pass.” Celebrate, yes, and keep riding on the tiger’s back.

The Energy of Six of Fire Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

Watch the waves in the ocean. The higher the wave goes, the deeper is the wake that follows it. One moment you are the wave, another moment you are the hollow wake that follows. Enjoy both – don’t get addicted to one. Don’t say: I would always like to be on the peak. It is not possible. Simply see the fact: it is not possible. It has never happened and it will never happen.

It is simply impossible – not in the nature of things. Then what to do? Enjoy the peak while it lasts and then enjoy the valley when it comes. What is wrong with the valley? What is wrong with being low? It is a relaxation. A peak is an excitement, and nobody can exist continuously in an excitement.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Luis

Luis

Protection, strength

Tree: Rowan (Sorbus spp.)

Letter: L

Luis symbolizes a connection with one’s higher spirit or Guardian Angel. Whether you believe in such things or not, we can all agree that without protectors, especially when we are young and defenseless, we human beings make easy prey. Luis indicates you are loved and valued by someone and that they love and value you enough to feel protective of you.

We are surrounded by beings who are willing to teach us and help us grow towards our potential as human beings, but if we reject their good advice with materialist denials or because we are lazy or treat them as spiritual vending machines, they are more than happy to stand aside and leave the doors open for the legions of beings who do not wish us well.

When we grow up, we all become parents of sorts as we end up taking upon the role of self-parent. For example: you get yourself up in the morning, not mom. You obtain food for yourself, you bathe yourself, you are responsible for your own behavior and regulating your own communications and emotions. Luis means you are willing to take the necessary precautions that a good parent would insist upon if you were the child. You are acting as a good parent to yourself, providing protection and sanctuary, allowing yourself room to grow without overreacting in extreme directions.

Questions when you draw Luis:

Numerology

From NUMEROLOGY DOUBLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Twenty-Four

The 6 based on 24 counsels and comforts others, likes music and often plays an instrument (percussion is a favorite). It represents domestic struggles and divorce, needs a solid, stable environment. Can be a bit gossipy.

Hexagram 20

Kuan / Contemplation

The gentle Wind roams the Earth:
The Superior Person expands his sphere of influence as he expands his awareness.
Deeply devoted to his pursuit of clarity and wisdom, he is unconscious of the inspiring, positive example he is setting for others to emulate.

You have cleansed yourself; now stand ready to make your humble, devout offering.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The situation marks a rising to new heights.
As you climb for a better view of the panorama, you make yourself more conspicuous to those below.
This hexagram is also known as the Watchtower, because the shape formed by its lines resembles the ancient guardposts manned by Chinese soldiers.
These towers were placed on mountainsides to give a better vantage point.
To those below, the watchtowers served as landmarks to help them find their way.
The quality of your search for clarity in this situation serves as such a guidepost for others along the Way.

Five Of Clouds

The Explanation of Five of Clouds Osho Zen Tarot

Has anyone ever told you that bamboo is more beautiful than oak, or oak trees are more valuable than bamboo? Do you think that oaks always wish to have a hollow trunk like bamboo? Bamboo is jealous of oak because it is bigger and has leaves that change color in the fall?

The idea of comparing two species itself sounds very funny, but people themselves seem to find this habit very hard to break.

Let’s face it, there will always be someone who is more beautiful than you, more talented, powerful, intelligent, even happier than you. And vice versa, there will always be people who are less than you in every way. The way to find out who you are is not by comparing yourself with others, but by looking to see whether you are filled with your own potential in the best way you know.

 The Energy of Five of Clouds Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings

Five of Clouds Osho Zen brings inferiority, superiority. When you don’t compare, all inferiority, all superiority, disappears. Then you are, you are simply there. A small bush or a big high tree – it doesn’t matter; you are yourself. You are needed. A grass leaf is needed as much as the biggest star. Without the grass leaf, God will be less than he is.

This sound of the cuckoo is needed as much as any Buddha; the world will be less, will be less rich if this cuckoo disappears. Just look around. All are needed, and everything fits together. It is an organic unity: nobody is higher and nobody is lower, nobody superior, nobody inferior. Everybody is incomparably unique.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Ailm

Ailm

Transcendence, humility, compassion

Tree: Fir (Abies spp.) or Elm (Ulmus spp.)

Letter: A

Ailm represents the enlightenment that comes of perspective. Its symbol looks like a cross post-resurrection. “He is risen”, meaning He has transcended suffering and has forgiven His persecutors and all mankind to boot. In Iolo Morganwg’s Druid prayer, Ailm is the “love of all existences” that transcends the karmic cycle. Drawing Ailm in any form is a call to look at one’s own personality and to ask “What am I here to learn?” Ailm is a perspective that comes from eons and many, many lives worth of experience. Only lived experience gives us compassion and detachment in balance. Ailm is also the divine aspect of humor. When you laugh an honest laugh rooted in humility, the gods laugh with you.

Though our culture tends to devalue anyone above the age of 40, we can acknowledge wisdom that comes with age, not in every case but reliably enough that it’s a valid stereotype that a person gets “older and wiser.” Having a bunch of lived experience can be quite helpful when it comes to solving life’s problems and making peace with its predicaments. The truly wise neither rush forward with unbalanced optimism nor shrink away with unbalanced pessimism; their information is better than that. They have the ability to read the winds before hoisting sails and attempting to journey across the sea.

Questions when you draw Ailm:

Numerology

From NUMEROLOGY DOUBLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Twenty-Six

It is excellent in business and management, a good strategist and works well with others. Often a workaholic. Can be the exact opposite in personal life: disorganized, lazy, excessively domineering parent.

Hexagram 15

Ch’ien / Modesty

The Mountain does not overshadow the Plain surrounding it:
Such modest consideration in a Superior Person creates a channel through which excess flows to the needy.

Success if you carry things through.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

The Cosmos is moving toward equilibrium.
Extremes are being tempered, excess is beginning to shift toward the empty.
You can use these moderating influences to strike a balance in the world around you.
Remember, though, that this Leveling will not come about through an arrogant confiscation of excess, but through subtler persuasions.
Modesty and moderation are the keys.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Beith

Beith

Intention, beginnings, births, pioneer spirit

Birch (Betula spp.)

Letter: B

Well dignified:

An intention with good potential. Bravery. Breaking free. Ending bad habits. Getting unstuck. The start of something good. A new way of thinking. An invention or fresh approach. The ability of getting outside yourself and fossilized modes of thinking. Breaking out of the box. Being the change instead of just talking about it.

Humans learn through mimesis, so it is only because of the brave souls willing to put their necks out for change that anything improves in the world. Beith indicates the willingness to follow through with an intention so you can change yourself and your world for the better. At first, it’s possible nobody will follow you, but Beith says you have the courage to get it done.

Every day is a new opportunity to become a better person than you were yesterday, no matter how tiny the improvement. What can you do, even if it is a tiny action or possibly inaction depending on the circumstance, to be kinder, braver, humbler, more honest with yourself, more generous, and more grateful than you were yesterday, last week, last year, or last decade?

Questions when you draw Beith:

Numerology

From NUMEROLOGY DOUBLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Fourteen

See ” Karmic Debt numbers.” Impulse and a need for change and adventure can get in the way of carefully planned progress. Lack of focus and commitment. This Karmic Debt number can get you in trouble unless discipline is exercised consciously. All 5s need to guard against self-indulgence, but when based on 14, there’s a selfish side that amplifies a lack of self-control.

K’uei / Estrangement

Fire distances itself from its nemesis, the Lake:
No matter how large or diverse the group, the Superior Person remains uniquely himself.

Small accomplishments are possible.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

You are working at cross-purposes with another.
The distance between you is very wide.
The gap can be closed, however, with no compromise of your integrity.
You are not adversaries in this case — just two persons addressing individual needs.
Ask yourself: are these needs mutually exclusive?
Is there common ground here?
Must there be one winner and one loser?
Could you become partners in seeking a solution that would allow for two winners?

Three of Rainbows

The Explanation of Three of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot

The angelic figure with rainbow-colored wings on this card represents the guide that each of us carries within. As the second figure in the background, we may sometimes be a little reluctant to trust this guide when it comes to us because we have a habit of believing signs from the outside rather than from the inside.

The truth from the very deep self indicates where we should go, and when Three of Rainbows Osho Zen appears, it means you can trust the guidance from the inside you are given. His words are a whisper, and sometimes we hesitate, not knowing if we have the right understanding. But the signs are clear; following the instructions from within you will feel more complete, more integrated as if you move away from a very central place of being. If you go with it, the light beam will bring you exactly where you need to go.

Kuai / Breakthrough

A Deluge from Heaven:
The Superior Person rains fortune upon those in need, then moves on with no thought of the good he does.

The issue must be raised before an impartial authority.
Be sincere and earnest, despite the danger.
Do not try to force the outcome, but seek support where needed.
Set a clear goal.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

Your iron will must come to the forefront now.
It will take great personal determination to resolve the situation in question.
Your adversary would love to force you into an angry display.
That would legitimize his opposition to you.
Such a berserker rage would drag you down to his level.
You must resolutely take a public stand against what he represents, but refuse to engage him.
Without compromise, you show others the way to higher ground.

Druid Ogham

From A Druid Ogham – Mor

Mor

Change, shift, the sea, maps, realm of the subconscious, great undercurrents

Tree: Witch hazel (Hamamelis spp.)

Letter: X

Sea change” is a term for profound or holistic change. Change is the foundation of existence. The interplay of opposing forces creates and destroys ad infinitum. Mor bookends the concept of change introduced by the first Ogham, Beith. The intention that sowed an action reaped a habit, the habit reaped a character, and the character reaped a destiny. The new track in space has been laid and change is inevitable.

When you draw Mor, look for the changes in and around you. These are not necessarily good or bad. Often, drawing this Ogham can mean something as basic as “oh look, the season of Spring is arriving”. Mor doesn’t have to indicate any kind of drama, although it could. Mor calls out to you to look at overarching influences, new factors or people, and to examine the permutations and possibilities of how they affect the environment.

Mor is a bird’s eye view of opposing forces in our lives rather than being upswept by the random forces that weave in and…

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.

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.

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:

History of the Gothic Rune Set

The Gothic rune set, while lacking its own rune poem, does have some very interesting meanings known to us. The reason for this is due to a bishop from the middle of the fourth century named Ulfila. Bishop Ulfila set out to construct a new alphabet that was largely based on the Gothic runes as well as Hellenic Greek and Arian and Gnostic Christian sources. While his alphabet failed for its purpose it did do a few positive things for the runes. Ulfila’s meanings for his magical alphabet found their way back into the meanings for the Gothic runes. Some would say that this is not a benefit for the runes because Ulfila’s own meanings may have replaced the older meanings for the runes. However, since we no longer have much idea what those meanings are, we do have at least one version of meanings for the runes. Of course, being a bishop, we do tend to see a sort of “Christian flavor” to the meanings, which can be looked on as either a good or a bad thing – all depending on your view.

When Christianity started to rise among the Goths they gave up their use of the runes, but they did replace their rune use with the use of Bishop Ulfila’s alphabet. The use of the new alphabet may in fact have kept us from forgetting about the Gothic runes and their meanings. Even though the true meanings may be lost, we do see at least one set of meanings for these runes thanks to the bishop. Also, I find it hard to believe that while creating meanings for his own alphabet that Ulfila completely ignored the original meanings for the Gothic runes. So there is still a possibility that the newer, “more Christianized” meanings have hints of the original meanings in them.

Another reason we know a little more about the Gothic runes, despite it not having a rune poem, is thanks to Otto von Friesen. This Swedish researcher, in 1928, published Runorn i Sverige in which he reconstructed the Gothic runes, their meanings as well as assigned genders to each rune. An excellent work that allows us more insight to the runes and their meanings on a whole new level.

The Eight Witch’s Rune History and Meanings

The Witch’s Runes are a set of magic symbols used as an oracle. (They’re unrelated to the Norse runes and other archaic alphabets.) While the exact age of this symbol set is unknown, it draws upon familiar images that will be instantly recognizable to the unconscious mind. Over time, Witch’s Runes have gained a reputation as an easy-to-learn, no-frills method for divining the past, present, and future.

Author Dana Corby published an article in the Crystal Well magazine in the 1970s outlining a traditional divination method using 13 runic symbols. (It has since been expanded and re-released as a paperback and e-book.) The Witchs Runes system later got the book treatment from Susan Sheppard in 1998 with A Witch’s Runes: How to Make and Use Your Own Magick Stones.

A Thunderous Cloudburst shatters the oppressive humidity:
The Superior Person knows the release in forgiveness, pardoning the faults of others and dealing gently with those who sin against him.

It pays to accept things as they are for now.
If there is nothing else to be gained, a return brings good fortune.
If there is something yet to be gained, act on it at once.

The relief you experience here is not your own personal pardon, but the release of others from your rigid expectations.

Numerology

From Cafe Astrology – Numerology

Seven

This is the deep thinker. The number seven is a spiritual vibration. These people are not very attached to material things, are introspective, and generally quiet. Ruled by Neptune.

Keywords: unusual, introspective, intuitive, psychic, wise, reserved. If expressed negatively: melancholic, odd, leaves too much to chance, hard to reach.

As lovers: These lovers are a little spaced out, and sometimes hard to reach and to understand. However, their disinterest in material things and focus on spirituality makes for interesting, if a little kooky, bed partners and mates. They are intuitive, some are psychic, and although they can be loners at different times in their lives, they are often devoted partners. They can reach levels of intimacy and romance beyond many people’s imaginations. However, their goals in love may be too lofty and thus they can be prone to disappointment when relationships inevitably fall short of ideal.

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…

Tree: Aspen (Populus spp.)

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…

 Twenty-Two

This is the master builder. Although Number Twenty-twos are idealists and visionaries, they still manage to keep their feet on the ground.

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?

The Seven of Pentacles Shadowcapes Tarot challenges you to make a choice: either eat and enjoy the fruit in the basket or…

Birch (Betula spp.)

Letter: B

Well dignified: An intention with good potential. Bravery. Breaking free. Ending bad habits. Getting unstuck. The start of something good. A new way of thinking. An invention or fresh approach. The ability of getting outside yourself and fossilized modes of thinking. Breaking out of the box. Being the change instead of just talking about it.

One

One is the leader. The number one indicates the ability to stand alone, and is a strong vibration. Ruled by the Sun.

Keywords: independent, creative, original, ambitious, determined, self-assured. If expressed negatively: arrogant, stubborn, impatient, self-centered.

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.

Hexagram 51

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.

Eye

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

This rune is my favorite. The all-seeing eye. It represents seeing things unseen, also seeing the beauty in things others don’t. Can also be a warning of the evil eye or someone watching.

Numerology

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…

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.

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.

Druid Ogham

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.

When you encounter Saille,…

Six

This is the peace lover. The number six is a loving, stable, and harmonious vibration. Ruled by Venus.

Keywords: compassionate, stable, family-loving, trustworthy, domesticated. If expressed negatively, superficial, jealous, possessive, unwilling to change.

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.

Excitement

Drama and Impulse

You may be feeling very bored, but don’t get too carried away trying to shake things up. Find something fun to do rather than creating drama between the people around you.

This card may also indicate a person who thrives on drama and enjoys shaking things up just to get people going. This person has a lot of energy but it is misdirected.

Benefits come both from on high and from the humble you uplifted.
Accept all gifts graciously, though the reward may not be what you truly need or hoped for.
Some may bestow more than they can afford to give, but you must realize that they need to feel that they have repaid you.

 

 

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:
