Tarot Card of the Day: The Seven of Pentacles:
As we prepare to reap what we have sown, and collect the object of our labors the opportunity to examine our true intentions and our current situation is at hand. The Seven of Pentacles reveals to us that through hard work and determination we can nurture our thoughts into material fruit, however, in the moment we are not quite ready to collect the harvest as our labors have not fully ripened. It is often in this moment of re-evaluation that our true intent becomes realized and the pesky pests that lie in our past attachments emerge from the subconscious to gnaw on our potential. Fear of success, is a vague and elusive rat. To the unrealized mind this is the moment when things mysteriously begin to fall apart, right before the harvest, when our burgeoning ideas and self-confidence begins to falter and the weeds of doubt and the vermin of fear destroy our co-creative efforts. Onipa’a, be steadfast for the harvest is at hand! The Seven of Pentacles asks us to stop and pause to re-examine your reasons for working so hard and whether it’s the path you truly should be following. Re-affirm your commitment to your own happiness and take the next step as the pay off is right around the corner. Be weary of letting your fears stop you from receiving what you have worked so hard to achieve.
Leaning upon his hoe, a farmer pauses to regard his efforts which are flowering abundantly on the vine, soon the flowers or The Seven Pentacles will transform into fruit and the time of reaping will begin. To the Ancient Hawaiians the vine growing Ipu was tended to with great care and skill. Flies and maggots would often overwhelm the blossoms impeding pollination and the slightest jostling or bruising of the young gourds would cause the fruit to rot. The vigilant gardener keeps the pests at bay so that verdant ideas may bear fruit.
Tarot Card of the Day: The High Priestess
The mysteries of the unknown and unknowable have puzzled and perturbed mankind over the many centuries of our collective existence. Science has helped humanity separate the fiction from the fact, the real and the unreal but even with all our technology, scientific observations, calculations and research much of the universe and it’s contents remains mysterious and unfathomable. The High Priestess represents the hidden influences that operate within our lives and the awe and mystery that surrounds what we simply don’t know. One constant in humanities development is the never-ending desire to Know and by knowing we make benign the darkness that lurks in the corners of our psyche. The Ancient Greeks coined the phrase “Know thy self and nothing more” hinting that the answer to life’s riddles lies not in the external world of polarity, gravity, and chaos but within the self, within the mind, the expansive universe of our thoughts. The High Priestess in ancient times once held a much more galvanized role in society, revered for her primary mystery and virtue of child-bearing, The virgin goddess’ of antiquity represented the greatest mystery of mysteries. Be prepared this month to open your mind to your higher self, the Christ mind, or the collective super consciousness. It’s not important to understand how it works, just rest assured that your psychic abilities do exist and The High Priestess has appeared to replace doubt with assurance. The caveat here is to let go of the why, what, where, when, how and trust in the Universe’s desire to deliver to your door your ultimate wish.
Seated on a raised dias sits the immortal Virgin Goddess, The High Priestess, Malama goddess of the moon. On her head sits the crown of Hathor on her chest the Solar Cross in her hand the Tora at her feet the crescent moon. Garbed in the light blue robe of the Virgin Mary, she represents all the sacred moon goddesses of ancient times and the glorification of female virginity in the Abrahamic faiths of today. The Vestals of ancient Rome and the Oracles of Delphi and Cuma were sacred because they were unsullied by man’s wanton desires and lust, believing that their virgin status was partly responsible for their powers of clairvoyance. The High Priestess sits between two pillars of polar opposites named Boaz & Joachim. These pillars marked the entrance to Solomon’s Temple in ancient Jerusalem and guarded the entrance to the Tabernacle or the Holiest of Holies, the repository for the Arc of the Covenant. A curtain or scrim hangs between the pillars obscuring the view of what lies behind her, decorated with date palms and pomegranates, symbols of male and female fertility. Peeking behind the curtain we see a great expanse of tranquil water, the ocean of the mind and the home of God. All the mysteries of existence are revealed not from outside of ourselves but from within.
Tarot Card of the Day: The Empress:
Abundanza in Italian or Wai Wai in Hawaiian is the adjective that best describes The Eternal Mother giver of life, love, and abundance. Gaia, Haumea, Mother Earth, the living breathing planet that nurtures and supports us rules the first month of the year with sensual abundance and love. Be ready, a child is brewing in the belly of your creativity perhaps both figuratively and literally so be prepared for its joyful nascence. The Empress is many characters: Hera, queen of the gods consort to Zeus, mother of Persephone; she is Venus, goddess of love, beauty, and desire; she is Adelaide Empress of the Holy Roman Empire; and she is Eleanor Queen of Aquitaine, mother of King’s. She is a fruitful ruler in the material plane, practical, loving, and adoring. The quintessential Mother of mothers, our Mame for all seasons. She is here to shower you with motherly love and support but remember not to fool with mother nature. Her realm is a material one where she reigns supreme and she wields destruction with fiendish efficiency. For the past century The Empress has been slowly rising in our collective consciousness producing a major shift in our appreciation of the sacred feminine, the pinnacle of which will be realized in 2012. What does that mean exactly? Be ready for a major shift of consciousness that moves us towards unity and peace. More women will have more influence in the material happenings of our planet. They will move into positions of leadership and influence not because they mimic male machismo and political ambition but because they are mothers and nurturers. “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world”.
The Empress reclines on her luxurious throne amidst the golden hues of a field of wheat; she is matron of the material, birther, mother, Creatrix. At her feet, the shield of Venus; in her hand a golden scepter evidence her dominion over the material world and love. Her star-studded crown and gown of ripe pomegranates are representative of her divine fertility and eternal abundance. Beware, for to scorn her is to evoke one’s own destruction.
Tarot Card of the Day: The Three of Wands
Without risk there is no reward, even in times of financial chaos and confusion opportunity abounds. It is precisely in these uncertain times that the greatest opportunity for success exists and nothing prevents the senses from detecting opportunity than unmitigated fear. The Three of Wands invites us to over come our thoughts of lack so that we may open the mind to unlimited potential. Poverty is a state of mind first that creates a state of being. Stop listening to the chatter of fear that is so artfully manipulated by pundits and television personalities. Stop sniveling and shivering in your boots and move from a state of petrified inaction to one of positive empowering action; prosperity and abundance is your divine birth right, not something the government or banks bestow upon you. You are NOT your credit rating you are a divine child of the Universe deserving of Gods unlimited abundance. Expect commerce to flourish this week and coöperation with one’s business associates will pay dividends.
With The Three of Wands we find standing upon the hill of higher consciousness, the Merchant. He intently watches as his ships; laden with the bounty of his co-creative efforts with God, return across the waters of the subconscious. Grasping firmly in his right hand the Merchant supports his role as co creator with the unquestionable belief in his creative energies and abilities represented in the suit of wands. Being in a state of unlimited abundance requires our firm belief in ourselves and The Divine Will, ensuring us that God’s Love includes unlimited supply. Believe!
