Ponder this ...
• Am I being too serious ?
• How can I learn from the silly ?
• Am I allowing myself and others to be who they are unconditionally, or expecting/needing/demanding conformity ?
• Can I let myself off the hook rather than getting caught in a repeating loop of self judgement and criticism based on something in the past ?


Coyote never loses. Because I change the rules of the games my enemies play. What are the rules of your game ?
~ Patricia Briggs

Compassion for yourself and others is key right now.

Stop taking yourself so seriously. And don’t be so harsh towards others who may seem to have swallowed a silly pill this morning. Laugh … play … let people off the hook rather than holding their feet to the fire of conformity and expectation.

Instead of being so self-critical about some personal idiosyncrasy or moment in the past when you feel you may have done something foolish or embarrassing … be willing to just relax into laughing with yourself about it rather than at yourself.

Accept the foibles of yourself and others as something to be amused by rather than things that are cause for rejection, ridicule, guilt. Let others off the hook for a momentary lapse that doesn’t necessarily conform to societal conditioning.

Embrace that child-like part of yourself that can do things in a moment of innocence or naiveté that may bring about some sort of societal or self judgement of condemnation.

Love unconditionally … yourself and others … rather than only loving when yourself or others « fit in » or do things as they’re « supposed » to be done.

Look back to instances where you might have done something abnormal or seemingly foolish It can offer a lesson of some sort. But not one that is meant to be for self-flagellation or to use against someone else in a critical or judgemental way. Instead, find the beauty in its humanity, and let it be a reason to love wholly rather than reason to reject or ridicule. We learn from the bizarre in these cases rather than the serious and straightforward.

Ponder this ...
• Can I make space and time for the deeper, more expansive conversation ?
• Am I just skimming the surface when I need to be willing to see or go beyond what may be most comfortable ?
• What issues are coming up that have been long simmering and need to be dealt with or healed rather than buried away any longer ?
• Am I properly taking care of my health and nurturing my well being ?

The empowerment journey that is critical to your healing - and to your life - comes from progressing through the deep waters of your dark passions and continuing onward to discover not what has been taken from you, but what you have yet to give and who you have yet to become.
~ Caroline Miss

Core issues wash in and over us with grittiness and roughness when we come up against them, like the rising tide that brings in the sand and silt onto the beach and conditions can quickly go from pleasant to romp around in to hazardous undercurrents that could suck us under and flail about in panicked reactivity.

We need to open a channel for whatever may be coming up or going on for us so that it can flow in and out rather than exacerbating the discomfort by trying to push it away … which isn’t very effective if you think about how impossible it is to put your hands up in order to stop or hold back a wave crashing into the beach.

Let’s take the time to sit in presence with what we’re feeling, and to be willing to go deeper into the feeling and conversation rather than just trying to skim the surface in order to get past it as quickly as possible. Looking beneath the surface, being willing to see what else someone or something has to offer or is communicating to us in ways that go beyond mere words, this is where the true gems lie, the buried treasure where it may have felt completely hopeless.

Pay attention to health and well being today. Make sure not to do anything too strenuous. Allow time to relax, catch up. Ease into things rather than coming at them hard. Drink lots of water.

YELLOW DOCK

Ponder this ...
• Where am I overextended ?
• How can I pull back from those things that no longer hold value for me, or are not where I want to be investing myself and resources at this time ?
• Am I taking out frustrations related to decisions or choices I've made on the people around me ?


In the age of technology there is constant access to vast amounts of information. The basket overflows; people get overwhelmed; the eye of the storm is not so much what goes on in the world, it is the confusion of how to think, feel, digest, and react to what goes on. ~ Criss Jami

We are being called to restore a sense of balance and equilibrium, in ourselves, in our lives, in our world.

Let’s use today to be honest with ourselves about just how much we can realistically do, what we have the resources to take on comfortably, and what we don’t.

Pull back from those things that are creating tensions due to asking too much, overlapping too awkwardly, causing negative effects in something (or someone) else because we just don’t have enough to give or there’s no way we can operate within the boundaries, structures, organisation without bumping up against and into conflict with the same things for something else.

Turn attention, energy and resources towards those things that are of true value, that possess the possibility of longer term worth and reward rather than just what we’re interested in for the moment.

We may be asked to juggle a variety of things today, just as we might be trying to focus on one thing or get that one thing on the todo list accomplished.

Gently allow yourself to move from one thing to the next. This will start to be more revealing to you of what you are really interested in and want to invest more in, while other things will just feel draining or intrusive, signalling they may not be worth more from us at this time.

And let’s not take our frustration or resentment for those latter things out on people around us. Own the responsibility for having said yes to something. And be willing to gracefully back away rather than snip and snap at others around you due to being tired, bored, or feeling they’re keeping you from something else you’d much rather be doing.

SERPENT OF FIRE Reversed
Priestess of the Serpent Sisterhood




Herbal Ally
DARK GRAPES

Ponder this ...
• Can I rest and wait, allowing the inner process to complete before taking outward action ?
• Am I relinquishing what has been in order to be fully ready and able to step into what is coming ?
• Can I make way for the unfamiliar rather than staying too firmly stuck in the comfort and safety of the familiar ?


Serpent of Fire, Rise Above
Filled with unconditional Love
From the base of my spine to my heart
Your ascending fire now does start
To cleanse, to release, begin, begin !
Rebirth of my Self now from within
From my heart to the crown of my head
Burning away energies dying or dead
Igniting new life, new love, new fire
Serpent of Fire, Rising, Rising Higher !

~ Alana Fairchild


Something stirs deep within us.
Something is awakening, stretching.
Something is shifting, changing, preparing for new birth.

We are being asked to relinquish our grip on the old, shedding those things that no longer serve us or really represent who we’ve become and who we envision ourselves becoming.

We need to be in greater awareness of our power to affect the world around us through our thoughts, words, actions. Right now, we can easily overdo and create havoc or harm by speaking before thinking, underestimating our influence or ability and coming on too strong, pushing too hard, doing too much all at once.

Relax back into a coiled resting position and state.
Observe rather than react.
Research rather than strike.
Absorb rather than spew.
Go along for the ride rather than steamroll over.

We are allowing the hibernation and moulting period to run its course, conscious of a shift in power, preparing to step into a stronger, more courageous, more vibrant Self ready to move forward into a future vision rather than stay trapped in a past mistake.

But we have to be fully ready, rested, and recharged in order to capture and take advantage of the full potential that will be the creative spark of what is to come.

It’s not that far off … but, for now, we rest, we wait, and we remain ready.

EPHEDRA

Ponder this ...
• When is the last time you took a break from life and gave yourself permission to stop thinking, stop worrying, stop stressing and just relax ?
• Are we amplifying our fears and worries by never taking a break from social media and conversations about all things bad ?
• Who can you hang out with for the evening that lets you just be you ?
• How can you be more gentle with yourself and with others ?

It is a common belief that we breathe with our lungs alone, but in point of fact, the work of breathing is done by the whole body. Breath as "pneuma" is also the spirit or soul. The breath holds the secret to the highest bliss.
~ Alexander Lowen

Breathe in to the count of 7 …
Hold for the count of 7 ...
Breathe out to the count of 7 …
Hold for the count of 7 …
Repeat this 7 times

When is the last time that you gave yourself a break and permission to just relax, enjoy and have fun, setting aside and shutting out the rest of the world and just inhabiting a space that is loving, supportive, free from the thoughts, stress, worries and fears that make your brain and heart feel like they're going to explode ?

Well, my friends, today is the day when you are being asked to do just that.

Leave work a little early. Make plans to be around loving, supportive, friends and family this evening in spaces that have the type of energy you need … whether calm, quiet and serene to give yourself a break from the hustle, bustle and noise of daily life, or lively and energetic to boost the spirits.

Engage in conversations that are heart-cantered, that leave the woes of what’s going on « outside », well, outside, so that the inner space that you physically, emotionally and mentally inhabit is warm, loving, stress free, and wallow-in-misery free.

Comfort food and warm drinks are called for. Have a fire going that brings light into this darkest time of the year.

Be gentle with yourself and with others. Sensitivities are high. Let’s be there to comfort … and fully receive the generosity of spirit and love being offered to us by others.

The reversal of this card signals a turning point towards a new phase, one that sheds some of the old in order to clear space for fresh thought, new ideas, a renewed sense of focus and purpose.

PASSIONFLOWER

Ponder this ...
• What choices or decisions need my full attention at this time ?
• Am I taking the high road in the matter at hand ?
• Can I remain neutral rather than contributing to an us against them mentality ?

It is very possible to acknowledge another person’s concerns without entering into their vibration.

~ Alaric Hutchinson

Decisions and choices are at the forefront of the day.

This is a key time to be making some final decisions and choices in order to start taking action on them over the next couple of weeks.

It’s important, however, to make sure you take time to pause, breathe, consider rather than just rushing into a decision or making a choice merely to get it made rather than having weighed the options, done the research and gotten comprehensive information.

Sometimes, the best decision is to pass at this time rather than be coaxed into something or choosing prematurely when it feels you might not have all the information or options available to you.

Be fair in how you interact and deal with people today. Take the high road rather than trying to lowball or take advantage of a situation. Karma.

This may not be the best time to take sides in a matter. Be the neutral party who can maintain objectivity, listen to all sides, and not contribute to a greater contentious or fractious nature in the situation.

Card of the Day
XIII Death Reversed




Herbal Ally
ELDER FLOWERS

Ponder this ...
• What needs to be released, removed, left in the rearview mirror ?
• Have I allowed fear to keep me cocooned away from what life has to offer ?
• Can I just give myself over to seeing what comes next rather than waiting, planning, fretting ... paralysed ?
• Can I accept that what's done is done, and move one ?

If you knew that your life was merely a phase or short, short segment of your entire existence, how would you live? Knowing nothing 'real' was at risk, what would you do? You'd live a gigantic, bold, fun, dazzling life. You know you would. That's what the ghosts want us to do - all the exciting things they no longer can.
~ Chuck Palahniuk

Dead. Done. Buried. Gone.

It’s time to let what was rest in peace in order to fully accept, embrace and step into the new, the transformative, that is being (re)birthed into being.

We relinquish a fear of death, accepting the impermanence of all things, unclenching and opening wide our palms to receive what is to come.

Instead of retreating into the cocoon, let’s be willing to just step fully, boldly, courageously into the unknown of what comes next without worrying about what to expect, trusting our ability to shapeshift accordingly as we improvise and adapt our way forward.

We can be prepared, but then set off without a roadmap. Just like we might pack our car with food, water, clothes, camping gear … and then just start driving, seeing where there road, inspiration and synchronicity takes us, knowing we’ve done what we need to and have everything we’ll need for whatever may come.

Exciting days lie ahead … the next phase of the journey awaits … let go and fall into it.

FOX Reversed




Herbal Ally
MUGWORT

Ponder this ...
• What change(s) do I need to be actively engaged in making ?
• Am I waiting for change rather than being part of the change ?
• Have I adapted too much to the point of losing myself or what's important or healthy for me ?

One runs the risk of weeping a little, if one lets oneself be tamed.
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

While the Fox represents adaptability to changes that are taking place, his appearance in the tamed (reversed) state suggests that we need to be setting our sights and actions on adapting ourselves and situations in a more direct, controlled way.

Step away from being part of the pack in order to rediscover, reco

We need to stand up and fight for change.

Instead of waiting for or just sitting back and accepting (or normalising) changes to and around us, it’s now time that we become far more engaged and active in be a part of the change, pushing back against things that may be changing in a way that is not right, or just, or in the best interests of the pack (the group, the community, the greater good).

This is calling on us to not step back and just make excuses for fixed, rigid ways of thinking or acting ( « That’s just how I am » or blaming it on someone or something else not changing before you can possibly consider doing so).

We have to shake ourselves out of a rut or complacency, to reach out for support in moving past emotional shut down, in order to make a way forward rather than finding ourselves rolling over and getting snowballed into change that we never wanted to experience but did nothing to try and stop or alter before it got too big.

And, I dare say, Fox showing up reversed may suggest that a more subversive or trickster aspect may need to come out to play in order to make progress. But let’s not allow ourselves to be tricked or fooled.

VERVAIN

Ponder this ...
• What vision can I see and hold for myself when I stop thinking and move into possibility ?
• What am I holding on to (ways of thinking, acting, emotions, etc.) that needs to be jettisoned in order to make progress ?
• Is there something I can contribute to halping someone else move forward in some way ?

I am the shore and the ocean, awaiting myself on both sides.
~ Dejan Stojanovic

We can see the other side from here.

Visions of what is possible and what we want to move toward, accomplish, create, manifest are both bright and clear as well as seeming closer rather than farther away, within reach but still some journeying to do in order to arrive there.

In order to make that next leap, to propel us ever closer, now is the time to reach out to those who can support or assist you in some way to get to where you want to be.

We may feel there are questions or confusion about the way forward or the path to the end goal or destination desired, but speaking up and reaching out will result in hearing the information you need or connecting with the people, places, things that will provide the platform for momentum and significant progress.

Alternately, be prepared to lend a helping hand or some vital information that could assist someone else. They may ask directly, or you may overhear a conversation that you could directly and beneficially contribute to. Step in, speak up. Doing so sets the stage for the same moment of clarity and assistance for what you may need in the future to take place.

Let’s get a move on today and advance towards something bigger, brighter, bolder than where we’ve come from and where we are now.

Ponder this ...
• How are my thoughts, words and actions perpetuating the very cycle of difficulty or suffering that I wish to be free from ?
• Am I communicating in a way that aspires and attracts or denounces and drives away ?
• What is coming to an end that I need to turn my focus away from in order to move forward ?

Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.
~ Patrick Rothfuss

We’re at a turning point, and it’s up to us as to how we are going to respond to the call for change.

We can get trapped in old cycles of thinking, acting, blaming, judging, defining, lost in a never ending loop of suffering that we desperately want to blame on people and things outside of ourselves, somewhere to lay the blame for the way we are or the way our life is.

Or … we can breathe in, opening our eyes, minds and hearts to recognising how things can shift, evolve, be different than they have been. The key is where we put our focus, how much we stay in awareness and control of our thoughts, words and actions, and if we are willing to step more fully into knowing and being ourselves rather than who and how we think others want to see us and wish we were.

One extremely important aspect of this over the next few weeks is going to be how we communicate, particularly in what we say, how we say it, who we say it to, and whether we need to say it at all (or at least at that time).

Our words can uplift, inspire, draw others closer to us … or they can inflict damage, drive people away, create defensiveness that erupts into conflict and/or shutdown.

It’s our choice.

But know that this is the moment when we have the choice to make the change, be the difference, rise above and work toward something greater, more inclusive, rather than a dog eat dog self-interest myopic approach.
