Four Of Wands

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.

Ogham

From Driud Ogham

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.

Hexagram Twenty-Four/24

Name: Fu.

Keyphrase: Turning point.

Formed By The Trigrams: Earth over Thunder.

General: If matters are progressing and showing steady improvement then there is no need to push them.

Love: New romance will be rekindled in your life.

Business: The next few months will show a steady improvement of your business.

Personal: It is a good time to plan for the future.

Overview: Fu relates to a gradual improvement over time. It is a very natural progress and will occur without any effort on your part. In some ways the progress is unstoppable. However, you should not make any attempt to force the issue and hurry it along. Let it take its own course and time. Treat this new beginning with care and do not make the mistake of handling it roughly by trying to force it.

Numerology

From Lasagna.com

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.

Angel Number

From Angel-Numbers.com

111

Number 111 means that energy gate is opened and your thoughts are materializing so quickly right now. Choose carefully your thoughts at this time. They need to be in harmony with your wishes and desires. Give absolutely no energy to fears, otherwise they can become reality and get fulfilled quicker than you thought.

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 Wands – A Court Card

Self-Interest; celebrity

Page 79

Description: A king sits upon a sumptuous throne. He’s dressed in rich fabrics and expensive clothes. He seems not to notice the wand propped up behind him.

Interpretation: There have always been dandies’ dedicated followers of fashion, but this guy takes the cake. His hair is tightly curled in a style, or a wig, that must have taken an army of hairdressers to prepare. His outrageous hat that supports plumes that would put a bird of paradise to shame. Look at the lace on his cuffs! Those frilly pantaloons! I can’t imagine there are any callouses on those manicured hands. No, he can sit there all day, preening in the mirror and ordering others about.

This is the ever-present celebrity, someone famous simply for being famous, with carte blanche to act as selfishly as they like. Although our king has inherited his throne, he’s forgotten his source of power. His wand stands behind him forlornly, like a broken curtain rail.

It’s good to dress up. Clothes afford us self-expression and allow us to move through social worlds. When we forgot it’s all a game, however, vanity and self-interest  result. We start believing our own hype.

Reading: You look absolutely fabulous, but you’re expending all of your creative energy on outward expression. Don’t squander creative talent on unimportant worldly things.

Love

Four of Cups

Secrets; lies; deceit; even to oneself

Page 102

Description: A man stands in front of a table considering a scroll. He’s in some kind of library and has a merciless air about him.

Interpretation: This man is a collector of secrets and whispers. He’s Sir Francis Walsingham, Elizabeth 1″s ruthless spymaster. Or he’s George Smiley or his nemesis Karla. He’s Varys from Gamed of Thrones. He knows all the secrets. He has books full of them. As every writer of a thriller knows, to possess people’s secrets is to have power over them, to play them. Someone is pulling the strings.

Yet we also have an inner spymaster who’s in full possession of our lies, our half0truths, deceptions, and transgressions. He’s not exactly our conscience. Spymaster aren’t angles. But he knows when we’re lying to ourselves, and that is the worse lie of all. How can we hope to be true to others, if we’re not true to ourselves? When we lie to ourselves, we end up needy of others, constantly asking them to make for the deficiency we feel inside. It’s extremely tiring to be around someone who constantly says, “I am the greatest at this!” or “I am the best at that!” when we all know they aren’t. But when we’re open and honest to ourselves, the spymaster loses all power. He can’t touch us. He can’t get a purchase.

Reading: Is someone keeping something from you, or you from them?

Health

King of Cups – A Court Card

Balance; emotions contained through self-discipline

Page 111

Description: A king sits on a throne, which is a giant cup. He isn’t armoured and doesn’t wear a crown. He looks at the world askance.

Interpretation: The King of Cups appears a little stern, but I think he’s a good king, He’d probably treat you fairly. However, if you look closely, you’ll see he has a prize fighter’s nose that has been broken more than once. And those fists. They’d crack your jaw with one easy hook. He’s seen many a brawl, many a scrap.

The fact that his throne is a giant cup suggests he’s in control of his emotions now, that when the red mist comes down he can hold the anger back, keep it in check. But the cup is pretty huge and he’s had to work hard to keep all that emotion from brimming over. Whatever he did in his youth, the king has completed an anger management course and is a better person for it. He’s a spiritual warrior has achieved self-mastery. The he has found inner balance is indicated by his symmetrical posture. He encourages us to find the still point within, to calm the ripples, an be still.

Reading: The card suggests self-mastery and self-disipline, the containment of emotions.

 

Wealth

Fortune – Number 10 in the Major Arcana

Fate; impermanence; changing times

Pages 40 and 41

Description: A Romany fortune teller steps out barefoot over the rolling chalk uplands, know in England as the Downs. The entire tarot deck wheels about her, all except for three cards that tumble to the floor.

Interpretation: Traditionally this card depicts an allegorical scene: a hand cranks the wheel of destiny. As the wheel turns, it raises some up to greatness, while others casts others down from their lofty heights. It’s salutary reminder that fortunes change.

Here the wheel is the tarot itself, whirling around a Romany fortune teller. The cards falling to the floor are going to reveal exactly which way the wheel is turning.

Our Fortune is kind of a fantasy Gypsy you’d want to run away with, like the “Gyptians” from fairy tale or folk song. But can you trust her? IS she everything she seems? Do you really want to know what she sees with those piercing eyes of hers? What if it’s not good news? Those clouds rising behind her could be fluffy clouds of fine weather, or the billowing galleons of a summer storm.

To work with the tarot—-to seek to know —is risky. There’s always the chance that you’ll learn something you’d rather not. The lesson of Fortune is that, for good or bad, everything changes. The wheel never stops turning. Enjoy what you have, right now, for you never know what’s coming in the morning.

Reading: At it’s simplest, this card indicates changing fortunes. How the card is placed in the spread, and whether or not it’s reversed will suggest that change is for better or worse. Whatever the world throws at us, we can choose how to respond. In that sense, we make our own fortune.

Rune

From The Rune Site

Thurisaz

Sound: “th”
Stands for: Thorn (or Giant)
Color: White
Casting meaning: This rune represents the ability we have to resist unwanted conflicts in a passive manner. It is a rune of protection and can tell us of a possible change that would have otherwise come without warning. You can use the protection aspect of Thurisaz as a defense against adversaries.

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 

Gort

G is Gort, the Ivy that sometimes grows freely, but often parasites upon other plants. It will grow in nearly any condition, and its endless upward spiral is representative of our soul’s search for self, as we wander between this world and the next. Gort, pronounced go-ert, is connected to growth and wildness, as well as confronting the mystical aspects of our own development and evolution. Also connected to the month of October and the Samhain sabbat, Ivy often lives on after its host plant has died–a reminder to us that life goes on, in the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth.

In folklore from the British Isles, Ivy is believed to be a bringer of good fortune, particularly to women. Allowing it to creep up the walls of your home would protect inhabitants from baneful magic and curses. It also appears in love divination in parts of England; it was said that a girl carrying Ivy in her pockets would soon see the young man who was meant to be her husband. Medicinally, an Ivy tonic could be brewed to keep away diseases such as whooping cough and respiratory ailments It was even believed to keep away the plague, but there’s no clear evidence that this worked.

Gort Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Banish the negative things from your life, and eliminate toxic relationships. Place a barricade of some sort between you and the things or people that would bring you down.

Magical Aspects: Look inward to find self-growth, but turn outward to find spiritual companionship with like-minded individuals. If you’ve thought about joining or forming a group of some sort, consider it well if Gort appears.

I Ching

From psychic-revelation.com

Hexagram Fouty – Two/42

Name: I.

Keyphrase: Increase.

Formed By The Trigrams: Wind over Thunder.

 

General: When accompanied by generosity abundance will endure.

Love: Do not be miserly in sharing your love with your partner.

Business: This is a time for furthering your business and for rewarding your staff generously.

Personal: Take the opportunity to help others and you will achieve great success.

 

Overview: Whereas Sun related to inequality and the need to redress it, I is the very opposite and relates to the time when the inequalities have been addressed. For the wealthier members of society this may initially mean a loss but in the long-term they will reap the benefits of a strengthened community. I tells you that this is a time of opportunity and that you should take advantage of it. And take advantage quickly for no situation is permanent.

Tarot Card

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)

Ace of Cups – Minor Acrana

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.

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.

“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.

Tarot Card

From TarotX – Osho Zen Tarot Deck

Four of Fire

The Explanation of Four of Fire Osho Zen Tarot

Each character in this mandala holds the left hand up in the receiving posture and lowers the left hand in the giving posture. The whole circle forms a huge energy field that takes on the shape of the double Dorje, symbolizing the Tibetan symbol for the thunderbolt. The mandala is like an energy field surrounding the Buddha, where all the individuals taking part in the circle make a unique contribution to create a unified and vital whole. The mandala is like a lotus flower, the total is more beautiful than the combined components, and at the same time enhances the beauty of each petal.

When Four of fire Osho Zen card appears, you have the opportunity to participate with others now to make your contribution to creating something greater and more beautiful than each of you could manage alone. Your presence not only nourishes yourself but also makes a valuable contribution to the whole.

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

Have you ever seen night going? Very few people even become aware of things which are happening every day. Have you ever seen the evening coming? The midnight and its song? The sunrise and its beauty? We are behaving almost like blind people. In such a beautiful world we are living in small ponds of our own misery. It is familiar, so even if somebody wants to pull you out, you struggle.

You don’t want to be pulled out of your misery, of your suffering. Otherwise, there is so much joy all around, you have just to be aware of it and to become a participant, not a spectator. Philosophy is speculation, Zen is participation. Participate in the night leaving, participate in the evening coming, participate in the stars and participate in the clouds; make participation your lifestyle and the whole existence becomes such a joy, such an ecstasy. You could not have dreamed of a better universe.

Ogham

From A Druid Ogham

Duir

Gifts, doorways, standing on the shoulders of giants, luck

Tree: Oak (Quercus spp.)

Letter: D

There isn’t a bad side to Duir, even when ill-dignified. Maybe it is because the mighty Oak is king of all trees and therefore king of the Ogham. Drawing Duir means that you will receive, are receiving, or have received a gift. The gift can come in unexpected forms — it could be as simple as a thought or it may be, in rarest of cases, an actual physical gift. Understanding Duir does take the prerequisite ability to appreciate gifts. The modern world is cursed with entire classes of people who take luxuries for granted and for whom gratitude is an untenable concept. Those people cannot be helped by any force other than glacial procession of time and the unimaginable powers that shape it.

Duir’s influence is like a good father or wise old grandpa: generous, kind, wise, full of knowledge and happy to share it, protective, and nurturing. He is a living library. He acts as a guide, creator, and ruler.

Questions when you draw Duir:

I Ching

From IChingOnline.net

Hexagram 49 – Forty-Nine

Ko / Revolution

Fire ignites within the Lake, defying conditions that would deny it birth or survival:
The Superior Person reads the Signs of the Times and makes the Season apparent to all.

The support you need will come only after the deed is done.
Renewed forces, however, will provide fresh energy for exceptional progress.
Persevere.
All differences vanish.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

A revolutionary Change must be made forcibly.
There is no negotiating with the Established Order.
Perfect timing is essential.
Let the abuse of power become apparent and oppressive to those around you before making your move.
Lay the groundwork, sow the seeds for Revolution without tipping your hand prematurely.
You will need a strong foundation, because you will have to bring about this necessary change alone.
You cannot count on popular support, so you must wait until there is massive dissent.
Then the avenue for your assault will be cleared.

Numerology

From Kasamba.com – Numerology

One

Number 1 literally suggests being number 1 in the things you’re doing. If it’s business, then number 1 shows your admirable leadership ability, your charisma when showing others the way, and in turn, people’s natural, innate desire to trust your lead. If you decide to own your business or be a manager at a company, you’ll succeed greatly. Just remember, not every other person is a number 1! It will help to have patience and understanding for those who’re born to be followers.

In matters of love, it’s easy for you to be on your own and not feel lonely. You love being in a relationship but you also enjoy being single – sometimes too much! When you’re going for a long-term commitment, make sure your partner doesn’t have co-dependency issues, as it will be a deal-breaker for you.

If a certain date adds up to number 1, that day is a great day to start new projects, to go out on a first date, to get a new haircut, and to plan ahead.

Knight of Chalices – A Court Card

Pages 220 – 221

This card is a proposals and invitations, of socializing, networking, and making new contacts. There may be an artistic or romantic proposal, or simply an enjoyment of good times, perhaps with an invitation to received to attend a propitious occasion. The invitation may allow for social advancement or provide a desired opportunity to make necessary contacts for emotional fulfillment and satisfaction in life. If representative of a person, this card is someone who has something beneficial to offer. One’s enthusiasm may prompt openings and opportunities, especially through casual mingling among people who prove helpful. Relaxation and good times are indicated, as well as holiday fun with others, and opportunities. Artistic expression is given direction  and finesse. There is also a possible opportunism with this card: someone being capricious with one’s emotions, vacillating and leading one on. Flattery or deception could come into p[lay, or a person could be misleading one either for his or her own gain or simply because of an inability to be emotionally consistent or make a sincere commitment.

Marigolds, flowers of well-being, affection, and relationships, make a wreath. A stork, a symbol of beginnings, devotion. and opportunities, stand by a tree.

Meaning: Artistic direction, romantic or social proposal, invitation, fun, relaxation, opportunity, advancement, emotional sensitivity, developing style, love, breakthrough.

Prompt Words: Proposals, socializing.

Raeidh

Sound: “r”
Stands for: Riding (as well as the means – Horse, Cart, etc.)
Casting meaning: Since this rune stands for the act of riding its symbolic meaning is one of a journey. A trip or adventure that we must undertake in order to further ourselves down a path we have set out on.

Witches’ Rune

The Eye

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.

Ogham

From Ogham Symbol Gallery

Duir/Dai9r

D is for Duir, the Celtic tree of Oak. Like the mighty tree it represents, Duir is associated with strength, resilience and self-confidence. The Oak is strong and powerful, often dominating over its shorter neighbors. The Oak King rules over the summer months, and this tree was sacred to the Druids. Some scholars say the word Duir translates to “door,” the root word of “Druid”. The Oak is connected with spells for protection and strength, fertility, money and success, and good fortune.

In many pre-Christian societies, the Oak was often associated with the leaders of the gods–Zeus, Thor, Jupiter, and so forth. The strength and masculinity of the Oak was honored through the worship of these gods.

During the Tudor and Elizabethan eras, Oak was valued for its stength and durability, and was commonly used in construction of homes. The bark became valuable in the tanning industry, and many areas of Scotland were deforested in the rush to harvest Oak.

Duir Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Carry an acorn in your pocket when you go to an interview or business meeting; it will be bring you good luck. If you catch a falling Oak leaf before it hits the ground, you’ll stay healthy the following year. Remember that “Duir” means gate or door–watch for chances that may pop up unexpectedly, and take what is offered to you. After all, an unknown opportunity is better than a missed one.

Magical Aspects: Be strong and steady like the Oak, no matter how unpredictable things may become for you spiritually. Your strength will help you prevail.

Numerology

From Kasamba.com

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.

Cougar [+ Mountain Lion & Puma]

Cougar meanings and symbolism include protection, agility, adaptability, secrecy, beauty, and wealth. The cougar (also referred to as a mountain lion, puma, or panther) is native to the Americas, with a range that spans from the Yukon in Canada all the way to Tierra del Fuego in Argentina. As a result, these wild cats are subjects in the mythology of cultures throughout the Americas.

In this post, you’ll learn about cougar symbolism and meanings, the cougar spirit animal, and cougar mythology. This post will also include the symbolism and mythology of the mountain lion, panther, and puma (the alternative names for cougar) and I may use the words interchangeably throughout this post.

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.

Six

Material goods and matters are symbolized by number six. Use your concentration and faith to balance your spiritual side and concerns about material comfort. Express your gratitude for things you have already. Kindly ask for more if you so desire. Remain positive at all costs and amazing opportunities will be soon presented to you.

Ogham

From 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.

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.

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…

Hexagram Twenty-Two/22

Name: Pi.

Keyphrase: Grace.

Formed By The Trigrams: Mountain over Fire.

General: Valuing beauty will enable you to cultivate your taste for harmony in all aspects of your life.

Love: Beauty is only skin deep – do not be taken in by superficial appearances. Look beneath the surface to see a person’s true character.

Business: If a business proposition looks too good to be true then it probably is. Make sure it’s exactly what it appears to be.

Personal: Enhance your inner beauty.

Overview: Pi is about observing natural grace and allowing that observation to inspire you to emulate it in life. Pi also is a warning not to be taken in by superficial beauty or appearance. Instead, make sure that what lies underneath the surface is more enduring. To neglect to do so may well lead to errors of judgment. Remember, the more enduring beauty is seen with the heart. Not with the eye.

Numerology

From Cafe Astrology – Numerology

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?

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.

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 Card

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. Copyright 2001

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is wealth-7.jpg

Ace of Swords – Decisions; activity.

Baby Fire dragons are hatching out of a nest set among the lower fire vents on the slope of a volcano. A Celtic sword visible behind the nest stands upright and has craved dragons entwining around the hilt. In the background the volcano is glowing and blowing smoke. The clouds are dark with reflections of fire on them. Fire symbolizes physical, mental, and spiritual strength and action. This strength can manifest either as destructive power or regeneration, depending upon the intent and self-discipline of the individual. The sword also has much the same meaning: strength and defense, the power to liberate or wound. Potential for self-destruction is represented by the active volcano in the background. Our lives are often disrupted by cataclysmic events, which sometimes seem to destroy our lives and turn them upside down. If we can learn to harness the fire of these events, we can safely walk through the flames and come out stronger than we were

Divinatory Meaning: You are in the process of making decisions that will affect your life for some time. A new period of cycle of much activity is imminent. Beware of activity without thought.

GEBO

Sound: “g” as in “gift” Stands for: Gift Color: Gold & Silver (Red) Casting meaning: Gebo represents the honor and connection that is created between people when they exchange gifts.

Triple goddess, life/death/rebirth, trinity, love – romance

Some people read this witches rune as a flower – new life, birth, fertility, love. I tend to read it more like the triquetra – life/death/rebirth cycles, triple goddess, etc. It’s completely up to you how YOU interpret these.

Ogham

From learnreligions.com

Eadhadh/Eadha

E is Eadhadh, or Eadha, which is the Aspen, a symbol of endurance and courage. The Aspen is a durable, hardy tree that grows all over North America and Scotland, so when Eadhadh appears, take it as a sign of strong will and success. Challenges may come your way, but you will eventually conquer your adversaries and obstacles.

In folklore and literature, the Aspen is associated with heroes, and many “crowns of Aspen” have been found in ancient burial sites. The sturdy wood was popular for making shields, and were often imbued with magical protective properties. In the Highlands of Scotland, the Aspen was often rumored to be connected to the realm of the Fae.

Eadhadh Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Like the Aspen, you can be flexible without snapping. No matter what obstacles come, allow yourself to know that these too will be gone eventually. You will be left stronger for the experience, if you can get over your fears and reservations.

Magical Aspects: Don’t give in to the pressures of the material world. Focus instead on your spiritual journey, even if it seems like it would be a lot easier to give up and let things fall by the wayside. Even in the Tarot, the Fool knows he has a long way to go, but the first step is the hardest. When Eadhadh appears, put aside your distractions, and take that first all-important step on your journey.

Hexagram Thirty – Nine/39

Name: Chien.

Keyphrase: Obstruction.

Formed By The Trigrams: Water over Mountain.

General: If outward progress is currently impossible then concentrate on cultivation your inner strengths.

Love: It will be necessary to go within to look for clues to building a relationship if love has gone sour.

Business: Do not blame others for current business problems. Instead, consult them for ideas and support in overcoming the issues.

Personal: This is only a temporary setback. Don’t start to feel sorry for yourself. It is not constructive.

Overview: Chien is about obstructions to progress. Although problems may seem insurmountable, they are not. Although external help may eventually manifest itself it is necessary to use this time to gather your strength and use the help of those around you to try and resolve the problems. Work on resolving any internal flaws or weaknesses. Don’t allow yourself to become frustrated. This is only a temporary setback. Once these obstacles have passed you should start to move forward again. But do so cautiously until you are sure that all danger has passed.

Duir/Dair

D is for Duir, the Celtic tree of Oak. Like the mighty tree it represents, Duir is associated with strength, resilience and self-confidence. The Oak is strong and powerful, often dominating over its shorter neighbors. The Oak King rules over the summer months, and this tree was sacred to the Druids. Some scholars say the word Duir translates to “door,” the root word of “Druid”. The Oak is connected with spells for protection and strength, fertility, money and success, and good fortune.

In many pre-Christian societies, the Oak was often associated with the leaders of the gods–Zeus, Thor, Jupiter, and so forth. The strength and masculinity of the Oak was honored through the worship of these gods.

During the Tudor and Elizabethan eras, Oak was valued for its strength and durability, and was commonly used in construction of homes. The bark became valuable in the tanning industry, and many areas of Scotland were deforested in the rush to harvest Oak.

Six of Wands – Success after hard work

Pages 68 and 69

A woman with a small dragon on her shoulder stands with a crown on her head. A five-point star is centered on her forehead, directly over the spiritual third eye. This symbolizes the woman’s connection with spiritual guidance and her access to ancient knowledge.  Before her is a table covered with rolled scrolls, quill pens, and other magickal equipment. Prominently to the front is a brass vase holding six crystal topped wands. Other small dragon fly and sit about the room. The star (pentacle of protection and a symbol of the Goddess) and the crown (spiritual enlightenment) reveal that this magician is on a higher path of life. She has gathered her will power (the wands) and placed them in a position to bring about fertility an manifestation (the vase). This fertile energy is repeated in the Celtic scrollwork carved into the table, the magician’s center for working her will.

Tinne/Teine

T stands for Tinne, or Teine, the Holly tree. This evergreen plant is connected to immortality, unity, courage, and the stability of hearth and home. Pronounced chihnn-uh by the Celts, the wood of the Holly was often used in the construction of weapons, and is known as a plant of warriors and protectors.

In the pre-Christian British Isles, the Holly was often associated with protection–planting a hedge around your home would keep malevolent spirits out, thanks in no small part to the sharp spikes on the leaves. In Celtic myth, the concept of the Holly King and the Oak King symbolizes the changing of the seasons, and the transition of the earth from the growing time to the dying season.

When Christianity moved into the Celtic lands, the new religion associated the Holly plant with the story of Jesus. The poky spikes on the leaves represent the crown of thorns worn by Jesus on the cross, and the bright red berries symbolize his blood.

Four of Pentacles

Pages 114 – 115

This is a card of security concerns. A person is focused on security of home and finances, saving money yet also having money to spend. This card indicates a cautious approach to friendship and socializing—not antisocial, but just careful and perhaps a little suspicious of the motives of others. Access to the home is restricted until a person is more familiar with would-be guests. Such a person does not appreciate uninvited or unexpected visitors to the home, nor a presumption of presumption of person familiarity. Reserved, careful, and self-contained, the person is possibly living in comfortable circumstances but has concerns about being taken advantage of and losing what has been gained. Financial security is of paramount importance, and this state is well entrenched. What is earned is kept in reserve, perhaps building up a savings account or being directed to a fund. This is the card of a private person, one who may be influential but also selective of associates. There may be a financial blockage or simply an unwillingness to spend money. This is a thrifty person, not so gift-giving is likely limited by price.

Nettle, an herb of security, home protection, and increasing finances, is kept by the door of the house. A turtle a symbol of security, abundance, defense, and relationships, withdraws into his shell.

Meaning: Security of home and finances, careful spending, saving money, budgeting, controlling personal access, feeling insecure, blocked expression, social reluctance, reserved nature, socially shy, suspicious of others’ motives, selective of associates, a small gift, endurance, pay raise, increase in income, income directed to private enjoyment of beauty.

Prompt Words: Financial security, self-contained, withdrawn.

UILLean

Ui (sometimes interpreted as Pe) is Uillean, the Honeysuckle. Associated with the manifestation of will, the Honeysuckle starts as a small seed and creeps along, growing and spreading over time. Honeysuckle twists and spirals up and over its surroundings, its soft yellow flowers releasing a sweet scent. It is the flower of unspoken desire, hidden needs, secret wants, but it also represents our goals of finding our true Self.

From a medicinal standpoint, the honeysuckle can be useful as well. Dioscorides says,

“the ripe seed gathered and dried in theshadow and drunk for four days together, doth waste and consume away the hardness of the spleen and removeth wearisomeness, helpeth the shortness and difficulty of breathing, cureth the hicket (hiccough), etc. A syrup made of the flowers is good to be drunk against diseases of the lungs and spleen.”

Uillean Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means you need to allow yourself the freedom to pursue your desire. If you’ve got hopes or dreams that are unattained, now is your time to start considering whether they’re remain just dreams, or become reality. Denying yourself the chance to enjoy life is unfair.

Magical Aspects: Take the time to experience joy, but make sure you stay true to your values and beliefs as well. In many Wiccan traditions, the Charge of the Goddess is quoted as a reminder of this: All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. Another aspect of this symbol is that sometimes, mysteries which seem to be hidden may not be as hard to delve into as you think–sometimes, you’ve just been sidetracked by distractions.

While there are 10 main numbers from 0 to 9 which make up all the other numbers in the universe, there are also what are called master numbers in numerology. The number 11 is one of these master numbers. This number is unique as it draws from the traits of numbers 1 and 2, but with greater strength. This could be both good and bad as it may be difficult to find balance. Number 11s desire solitude and you are introverted in nature. The need to be creative is what drives you in your professional field, so a job where you are required to perform the same mundane tasks day in and day out won’t be best suited to you. You are a free thinker while being empathic and people are drawn to you.

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.

Numerology

From Numerology Double Digit Numbers

Thirteen

See “The Karmic Debt numbers.” Hard work and slow progress, this Karmic Debt number is difficult but rewarding when enough effort is applied. Grounded and down-to-earth. Reliable, trustworthy, but sometimes rigid and, while lacking a sense of humor, actually better at expressing ideas and feelings than most 4s.
