SAFFRON

Ponder this ...
• What's right in front of me that I can grab hold and take advantage of ?
• Am I living life and pursuing my vision of the future with gusto ?
• Am I putting myself out there, showing the world my best, rather than waiting for it to find me ?

Zest. Gusto. How rarely one hears these words used. How rarely do we see people living, or for that matter, creating, by them.
~ Ray Bradbury

Energy surges, and ideas, goals, desires and ambitions shoot upward and outward from within us.

It’s not about looking somewhere « out there » for what we want or where we need to be going … it’s about harnessing the inner fire of confidence, courage and drive in order to let it propel us into and towards what we want.

Having a vision for the future is great … and we should allow that vision to be grand, bold, larger than life.

But it’s time, instead of continuing the process of coming up with the vision, to start taking concrete steps and necessary actions toward making that vision a reality.

If we are awake, aware and alert, we’re likely to see and discover possibilities, opportunities, and potential right in front of us.

It may feel like a lucky day or a lucky break … but it’s really that because we are seeing and taking advantage of what’s right around us in this moment rather than missing it because we keep looking beyond for something else, thinking it’s further away, out of reach.

Be open … be prepared … believe.

PRINCE of CLOUDS

WILD CHERRY BARK

Ponder this ...
• Am I listening as much as I'm talking ?
• Am I being thoughtful and considered in my words rather than running off at the mouth ?
• Am I engaging others in the conversation rather than just talking at or to them ?
• What ideas or plans are exciting me that I can take immediate action on moving forward ?

Within the depths of the earth, new elements are being formed : The alchemical fire which both purifies and transforms the very substance of our inner life.
~ Sabian Symbol for this New Moon in Sagittarius

Pay attention to what you say and how you say it.

Make sure you consider carefully the words, phrasing, tone, context, timing, motivation behind what is said.

We can have so much enthusiasm and excitement about ideas and plans and visions for the future that we just can’t wait to tell everyone and get them on board.

But if we find that we are talking so much and/or so fast that we run out of breath … then it’s a sign that we need to pull back, pause, breathe, consider, and then proceed in a more controlled, thoughtful manner.

Instead of creating confusion by overwhelming with too much information too fast … or creating tension or conflict by speaking to hastily or having the words that come out not really be what we meant to say … let’s really focus on how we can best energise and excite others as much as we are about what we’re thinking and what we have to share.

Avoid talking « at » others today … instead, really engage in a dialogue that includes them, allows them the chance to speak and respond rather than just react. This is often achieved by recognising the need for and being comfortable with silence, pauses, not pushing or rushing someone for an answer or response but, instead, giving them time to process and consider.

« So, what do you think ? » could be your most powerful and potent phrase of the day.

I MAGICIAN Reversed




Herbal Ally
ASTRAGALUS

Ponder this ...
• Am I allowing impulse to become compulsion ?
• Am I allowing myself to be manipulated or controlled ?
• What deeper, darker desires are tickling me to explore them further ?
• Can I play with letting my dominant side submit ... and my submissive side take control ?

If my Master is lost, I'll find him. I'll lead him back to himself, because to serve doesn't always mean to follow.
~ Joey W. Hill

Fallen angel. Under a spell. What dark magic is this ?

it’s as if we can’t stay in control of ourselves today, giving in to compulsion, desire upon desire, either wanting to be controlled, or wanting to be the one who is pulling all the strings.

This may sound horrible … but … it really comes down to how we choose to engage with this type of energy permeating the day.

On the one hand, we can allow marketing, consumerism and materialism to juice our impulses and convince us into overspending, overeating, overindulging with the hangover and regret that comes later. Or we may allow ourselves to fall prey to jealousy and possessiveness, desperately trying to control the thoughts and actions of another, convinced that we can « make » them want us, love us, believe us, forget everyone and everything else for us.

Or … can use this to surrender control where we tend to be controlling, submit where we tend to make sure we remain dominant, play in realms that we normally wouldn’t give ourselves permission to do so in order to maintain appearances.

Let’s be willing to explore our darker side in a way that allows us to see the magic beyond the obvious, beyond what we know and are comfortable in defining ourselves by.

Let’s dabble with something a bit more potent, a bit more scary, a bit more boundary pushing … there are greater mysteries, delights and pleasures to unleash, discover and revel in … if we stop being so certain about what it’s supposed to be and give ourselves over to what it can be and has to offer.

Card of the Day
KANGAROO | Gratitude




Herbal Ally
VALERIAN

Ponder this ...
• What am I grateful for ?
• Am I recognising and taking advantage of every opportunity in every moment to express gratitude?
• How can I express gratitude to and/or for my greatest enemies, challenges, difficulties ?
• When was the last time I looked in the mirror and said, « Thank you » ?

Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality.
~ Alfred Painter

The very nature of practicing gratitude allows us to live in to life, shifting our focus and rewiring our minds to find and experience the joy and wonderment of life rather than getting lost in a never ending tide of negativity, uncertainty, disappointment.

If all things are impermanent, then missing the opportunity to be grateful, to say thank you, to receive gratitude fully and openly means that we never get that opportunity again in just that way, in just that form. A moment of revelation bypassed.

So much occurs in our lives and around us in the world that hardens our hearts, strengthens the walls and defences, creating a barrier between ourselves and the potential for the fullest experience of this lifetime.

Step into gratitude and discover how it softens the heart, how it expands the ability and capacity for forgiveness towards others and towards ourselves, how it reminds us of the infinite and eternal possibility of life rather than the giving up to an all encompassing darkness that is only a momentary, impermanent condition or particular circumstances.

This is my challenge to you today, and every day moving forward. Pause for a moment each day and consider the most difficult, negative, horrible situation that you are faced with or aware of in your life at that moment.

And then, while looking at that directly, complete this phrase : « I am grateful to that enemy (person), situation or thing for … »

When we can see it from a different perspective not clouded by judgement, fear, anger, revenge, guilt, etc., then we cultivate the capacity to be able to respond differently in ourselves and externally.

Doing this on a regular basis will alter who you are, how you operate in the world, and generate a change in the way the world around you encounter and interacts with you.

JUNIPER BERRIES

Ponder this ...
• What appears when I turn my inner and outer gaze to the future ?
• Can I just play with the possibilities for a bit rather than feeling the compulsion to be taking immediate action ?
• What happens when I drop all limitations and boundaries to potential for what my future could look like ?

Flowers do not force their way with great strife. Flowers open to perfection slowly in the sun.
~ White Eagle

Our imagination and creative spark for what the future can be get stimulated and start to really flow today.

Look to the horizon for what may be possible. Let go of self-defeating limitations.

But hold off on rushing into taking action on all these possibilities that all look amazing.

There is an illusory aspect to one or more of them that will start to clear up and clarify over the next week or so. Right now, they may be bound by a lack of prgmatism, organisation, preparedness.

As the next couple of weeks progress, there will be ones that really call our attention and come into focus for where we need to putting our energy and resources at this time.

A little patience goes a long way toward long term success.

For now, revel in the realm of curiosity, imagination and creativity. Play with possibilities on paper, on canvas, through inspired conversations with others. Don’t worry about conclusions or calls to action just yet.

SASSAFRAS

Ponder this ...
• What exciting, inspired ideas can I start running with ?
• Where do I wnat to go, and how to I get moving in that direction sooner rather than later ?
• I am being open to the experience of the moment rather than looking for longer term implications ?
• Am I being to hasty in my speech ?

Never let the motor in your mouth run faster than the one in your head.
~ Linda Poindexter

Our mind and mouth are getting fired up as Mercury moves in to Sagittarius for the next few weeks.

We may be barely able to keep up with all the inspired ideas and grand plans that flash through our thoughts. What we don’t want to do is speak in haste.

Our enthusiasm and passion can have us talking a mile a minute. Which is great. But if we don’t pause for a moment to take a breath, think about what we’re saying and how we’re saying it, we may find that we unintentionally push someone away rather than draw them in.

We can be thinking about future plans, with little limit on what we want to do and what might be possible.

And we’re anxious to get moving in the direction of that future.

Travel or even moving to distant places seem to be top of mind right now. This is a great day to be planning a big trip or engaging with others from foreign places. And this doesn’t have to mean just geographically. It might also be encouraging us to go into environments and experiences that are foreign to us, to converse with people from a different culture or lifestyle.

Something from exposing ourselves to that which is foreign to us will be the catalyst for expanding our knowledge, inspiring a direction for us to go in life, opening up a new possibility of potential that we hadn’t known about or considered before.

We may have a one night stand tonight. Embrace the experience for what it is in the moment rather than worrying about or trying to make it into something more.

We might also experience love at first sight, or a very quick or sudden development in love with someone or in a way that is new, fresh, maybe even foreign to us. Be open and embrace the ride rather than holding back.

MENG (hexagram 4) | YOUTHFUL FOLLY




Herbal Ally
SQUAWVINE

Ponder this ...
• Who do I reach out to that can guide and teach me in what I want to master ?
• Am I pretending to know in order to not feel embarrassed rather than being willing to say, « I don't know, » in order to truly learn ?
• Have I become a « yes man » or surrounded myself with those ?
• Am I letting impulsiveness get in the way of perseverance ?

The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.
~ Herbert Spencer

We must be willing to seek out the teacher rather than waiting for the teacher to come to us.

Let the gush of interest, curiosity, readiness compel you towards who or what you need at this time in order to ask questions, gain additional knowledge, and better understand how to move forward.

If you are sought out as a teacher or guide or mentor, accept the person who shows a genuine interest, willingness and patience to learn. Reject those who are just looking for someone to give them the answers or tell them how to do something in the moment just to get by or make an impression.

Perseverance that never slackens until the points are mastered one by one is what will lead to real success. Patience, thoughtfulness and kindness are key.

Thinking we already know it all, or are invincible to the pitfalls that others have experienced, can lead us into trouble, at best, and catastrophe, at worst.

Be willing to surround yourself with experts and masters rather than needing to be perceived as the smartest person in the room.

Things that can lead to problems, complications or downfall right now include impulsiveness, immaturity, impatience, reckless behaviour and trying to bluff.

Pretending you know or know how to do something is a dangerous tightrope that you will, at some point, fall off of and suffer repercussions for.

Be willing to say, « I don’t know. »

Be willing to ask for someone to show you how rather than just trying to wing it and then not knowing how to fix mistakes, or causing mistakes that have longterm repercussions.

Be willing to listen.

VERVAIN

Ponder this ...
• Am I stuck in place because I refuse to ask for help ?
• Am I more willing to stay tethered to the past rather than consider a different future ?
• What step or movement is it time for me to make that I have been avoiding or fearful of the outcome ?
• Am I willing to seek clarity through the assistance and lens of another rather than thinking I have to just figure it out and deal with it alone ?

You must read, you must persevere, you must sit up nights, you must inquire, and exert the utmost power of your mind. If one way does not lead to the desired meaning, take another; if obstacles arise, then still another; until, if your strength holds out, you will find that clear which at first looked dark.
~ Giovanni Boccaccio

It can feel painful, pointless just to get out of bed and put one foot in front of the other in order to move forward.

But we must.

We want something or someone else to take away the pain … or to do something to make things different.

But they won’t.

We can feel abandoned, alone, unable to see how to navigate the way before us, that we have no one left to help guide us, support us.

But we do.

If we can take that first step, no matter how difficult, challenging, painful, and reach out to ask for support, help, guidance, we are likely to find who or what we need to move forward.

Clarity can come when we’re willing to surrender to alliance and partnership with one or more others rather than trying to just go it alone feeling as if we are failing miserably more and more.

We carry such a burden of guilt, shame, blame, anger, vengeance, arrogance, denial … unable to let go of a past we can reverse, unwilling to consider a future that we can control.

But we can.

GRASSLANDS
Provide




Herbal Ally
PLANTAIN

Ponder this ...
• What do I need to do to sustain ?
• What am I providing that supports and includes the greater whole rather than just the desires of the individual ?
• Who/What/Where can provide what I need at this time ?
• Am I willing to take the time and offer what is needed by another when asked or I see the need is there ?

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
~ Albert Einstein

With Mars moving into Aquarius today, for the next 6 weeks, the Grasslands card appears to remind us that, due to the interconnectedness of all things – just as the ecosystem is a living, breathing example of the ultimate interconnectedness – we are called to not just stay so focused on providing for ourselves and making sure we have what we want, but to take an active role in how we can help make sure that all beings – human, animal, mineral, the planet – are provided for in ways that are sufficient and sustainable.

And what a day to be offered this reminder.

Let us seek to move beyond self-interest in order to see the larger, more human, picture of how supporting and providing for the needs of everyone benefits us all in greater ways.

Let us offer compassion to those who are feeling vulnerable, emotionally overwhelmed or burned out, weak, or just asking for a helping hand or a hug.

Let us be willing to ask for what we need, a helping hand, a hug, a shoulder to cry on.

Let us offer open mindedness and a willing to listen to those who may disagree with us or believe differently than we do.

Let us accept victory with humility and defeat with grace.

And just as the trees drop their leaves in the Autumn to grow again in the Spring, and the grass turns brown to be replenished by the rains and return green again, let us remember that one day, one event, one victory or defeat does not a lifetime make.

A new day dawns, and we continue the work, renewing and providing the focus, energy, action and resources to replenish and carry on doing the Work to fight for what we believe … to perhaps take some time to hibernate and renew, but to not hide away indefinitely or cower in the face of what may seem overwhelming odds and challenges.

TURMERIC

Ponder this ...
• What can I do to stimulate the process of mixing things up and seeing what additional potential might be possible ?
• Where have I settled rather than challenging myself to go for more ?

If you don't know what you want, you'll never find it. If you don't know what you deserve, you'll always settle for less.
~ Rob Liano

Be open and willing to see the potential and possibility ... beyond what you may be used to or even comfortable with considering.

It likely means that there may have to be some reconfiguring, some dismantling in order to determine what’s not working at peak efficiency in order to reestablish it in a different way that generates a greater, more productive flow.

Be willing to engage in the discussion, bringing in outside perspectives and ideas, which may spark something we might not have seen or thought of otherwise.

We don’t necessarily have to come to agreement or consensus today. But it is important that we at least create space for the dialogue, the input from a variety of perspectives and voices, and to not just dictate.

Internally, pay attention to areas in life where you might have settled. It’s time to shift energy into those areas in order to stir them up, shake us out of our complacency, and challenge ourselves to not only pay lip service to, but to take action towards, how we can take those areas into higher, greater spaces of potentiality.
