The Charioteer

‘Temporarily paused for inner maintenance’

 

Sometimes, when I stop listening…

 

Hubby: What’s for dinner?

Me: Dry cat food and deodorant. And maybe some yoghurt.

Him: (Stares at me)

Me: (Notices the silence and the look on his face) … You didn’t ask me what we needed from the store, did you?

Him: No.

Me: uhmmm

TAROT: CARD FOR JULY

July represents (Key 7) The Chariot.

The CHARIOT.

Symbolically the Charioteer is the soul, directing the body. Look at the Chariot card closely, notice that the charioteer has no reins. It is mentally, through the will, that he directs the sphinxes. The starry canopy overhead indicates that we are recipients of celestial energies. The winged globe on the cart represents self consciousness elevated by aspiration. 

ASTROLOGY-SIGN

Cancer (Moon) 

June 21-July 22 

(Key 7) Cancer. 

CANCER RULES

The crab has a shell which protects its soft body, from the dangers of the outer world. Cancer withdraws into its protective shell to ponder recent experiences and examine them subconsciously.

The Sighs of July

Just About The Sighs of July 

 

“Once we feel, know, and dare to imagine more for ourselves, we cannot unfeel, unknow, or unimagine. There is no going back.” ― Glennon Doyle, Untamed

In Numerology

The month of July represents “SEVEN”

 

‘What is it’?

‘Ssshhh’…  

 

Stand or sit silently for a few minutes. Listen…

 

RETREAT AND RE-EVALUATION

It’s time to go within. It’s a call to know yourself and about life in a deeper way. 

Even if you are doing something mundane and your life looks pretty average, scratch just below the surface and there will a flavour of the original. 

 

QUIET ZONE

Earth calling July. ‘come in please’ 

You will want to be in a ‘quiet zone’ There will be a part of you that is not quite ‘there’ Learn to meditate or some other mental discipline that will help you detach that way you will think more clearly.

Find something truly worth investigating to explore.  You may lose yourself in daydreams and become quite addicted to escapist activities. When you realise that focusing on something really does make it happen in your life, you will have great fun manifesting what you want.

 

DAYDREAMERS

Daydreams can be a prelude to inspired action. Take note of your dreams. Work at understanding more deeply about yourself. Meditate and have time alone. Question your life and your priorities, but avoid sudden decisions and dramatic actions. 

‘Nothing is more important this month, than to be free to use your imagination to beautify and create. Whatever you do, take time to express yourself!

Your July mantra should be:

‘Listen with your heart’

 

UNIVERSAL MONTH

Bear in mind, that the 2021 vibes of July, are intensified, within the Universal Month of ‘three’ which represents creativity and is good for artistic and creative pursuits. Avoid being too serious. To do this would be to stifle the light hearted.

 Into the void you go, to discover your art and to speak to your soul.   

 

 

Gone Walkabout

I’ve Tested Positive For Needing a Vacation 😀

‘I’m sorry I’m not available to answer your call right now, … please leave your message at Shell beach. Western Australia.

Gone on a family walkabout in the wonderfull lands of Oz

More fun, more adventure, more laughter.

ABOUT SHELL BEACH

This aptly named beach is found on the drive into Shark Bay and you won’t find sand here – just billions of these tiny Shark Bay cockle shells reaching depths of up to 10m and stretching for more than 70km.

In the early 1900s, shells from the beach were quarried, cut into blocks and used to construct a number of buildings in nearby Denham.

When you #WanderOutYonder along the Coral Coast Highway, stop to explore Shell Beach then keep your eyes peeled for shell block buildings around town.

June Lovers

Happiness is, a hand to hold and a heart to understand’


Andy Rooney

Numerology: June Reminders 

June represents Six. The essence of love and family. Balance of responsibility.

Read: ‘It’s June, Love’

https://justsayins.wordpress.com/2021/05/29/its-june-love/ 

Astrology-Sign:

May 21-June 21 Represents Venus and Gemini. 

Gemini Rules 

“Holding hands is a big deal”

Gemini rules hands, arms, lungs and shoulders. these are all pairs that must operate in unison, if the body is to be well coordinated. Also, we use our hands and arms to express love by touching and holding. Many people cannot communicate effectively without the use of their hands. Domestic life is your highest priority this month and will find comfort in the home, or in home related activities.

Tarot Card of the Month 

June represents (Key 6) The Lovers.

The Gemini Twins card is an obvious reference to partnership and marriage, while signifying equality in relationships. This card is saying that in any relationship scenario, be it love or friendship, you must regard any upsets as a challenge to be overcome not just as a barrier. ~ Step by Step Tarot. Terry Donaldson.

Tarot Card Symbology

The tree behind Adam symbolises the signs of the zodiac. The flames on the left of the tree trunk represent the five senses and those on the right symbolise the body and the original planets. Behind Eve, is the tree of knowledge. The serpent in the tree, the kundalini force, giving them power to create.

IT ALL ADDS UP

There are no coincidences. There IS an order in the universe and here is a key that can put your world into logical perspectives. Numbers are also synthesised with Tarot keys, planets and signs and decals of the zodiac.

THIS IS A BRIEF PROFILE ABOUT:

Pamela Colman-Smith

NUMEROLOGY:

In numerology  Pamela’s birth path represents: ’33’ ~ The Spiritual Avatar.

MEANING:

‘The Spiritual Avatar’ is considered to be a love vibration raised to the highest level “Compassion’

’TEACHER OF TEACHERS’

33’ as a number is the versatile, creative, resourceful and imaginative. Although it may require self sacrifice and sometimes martyrdom. Otherwise known as the ‘Teacher of Teachers’ It is the number of the reformer with a strong desire to make the world a better place in which to live. 

Although, there are risks in living up to such a high vibration. In the negative ’33’ can be emotionally unstable and will sacrifice themselves for any cause. The danger is, becoming a doormat for others.

ASTROLOGY-SIGN:

Pamela was born on 16.2.1878 under the star sign of Pisces.

The Original Tarot Card as illustrated by Pamela (Pious Pixie)

THE TAROT CARD

I think that the tarot card, that relates mostly to the spirit of Pamela would be: 

THE EMPRESS

Pamela was a self confessed lover and creatrix of beautiful things.

(Key 3) The EMPRESS  card symbolises the sub conscious mind.

It is a reference to that memory which produces growth through the imagination. The Empress card shows that the way forward, is to develop and put to use your own creativity. Your own ability to make things grow. ~ Step by Step Tarot. Terry Donaldson.

The EMPRESS ruled over Pamela’s own personal creativity. It is directly related to the emotions in which this creative potential is rooted. Without our ability to see, feel and to experience the different emotions of love, pain, fulfilment and rejection, we would all be dead as doornails, at least as far as the EMPRESS is concerned.

The real challenge is to learn to accept all of our feelings.

THE EMPRESS CARD SYMBOLOGY

Look closely at the card. The trees, dress and wheat symbolise the ripening that takes place in the intuitive mind. The stream is the life stream, the stream of consciousness. The twelve stars on her crown are the twelve zodiac signs or the twelve months. thus representing time itself. In the same vein it takes time to bring our desires into manifestations.

We live in a society in which the EMPRESS is heavily repressed.

Good Heavens

GOOD HEAVENS 
You mean … that happened back when?
but why didn’t she say something?
… when he said nothing then?..  

Each vibrant painting depicts a symbolic story,
bestowing kingdoms of good treasures and glory.
She began with a word and the word was emotion,
each illustration, imbued with a spiritual potion.

The colours, the liveliness, the right actions,
each story holds human divination satisfaction.
From morning to night, creating from source,
each card, a contemplative signpost for cause.

As genius in the design of costume and arts, 
a deep symbolic wisdom, is held in each card.
Many have walked within her graceful steps,
the Empress of righteous thoughts… she kept.

Today all praise her eyes and ears of truth, 
however, back then, her talents were rebuked.
Rider and Waite held copyrights to her fame,
what a pity, they never testified of her name. 

Incredulously. He, had been her best friend,
embarrassing, is how the ‘Rider Waite’ fate ends.
PAMELA COLMAN-SMITH; Artist of esoteric mysteries, 
aka *PIOUS PIXIE, the designer in tarot card history. 

In memory of her work in faith and labour of love, 
in patience, her talents, elected from heaven above.
In dedication, as I hold my hand on my navel,
I shall bow to her prophecies of mystical tales.

ALONE - 
Alone and in the midst of men,
Alone 'mid hills and valleys fair;
Alone upon a ship at sea;
Alone -- alone, and everywhere.

O many folk I see and know,
So kind they are I scarce can tell,
But now alone on land and sea,
In spite of all I'm left to dwell.

In cities large -- in country lane,
Around the world -- 'tis all the same;
Across the sea from shore to shore.
Alone -- alone, for evermore.
~Pamela Colman-Smith

The Secret Door

Cosplay – Steampunk Tinkerbell ~ Howie Muzika 2014
THE SECRET DOOR
She saw a glimpse of paradise in a butterfly,
brightly coloured flowers and dragonflies.
Where flocks of birds chirrup and sing,
extra sensual pleasures, to her, they bring.  

I don’t know, who didn’t tell you this,
another legend, that history has missed. 
Although, they do say, it is utterly true,
that there is a hidden portal to go through. 

An enchanted garden, across Welsh lakes, 
where our fair folk dwell, for goodness sake.
Envision your wildest, of fantasy dreams, 
of a world, that is as magickal as it seems. 

Using your prayers with good intentions,
whisper favours on the pure will of heaven.
Find the secret door, across invisible lake,
set forwards to holy island, of spritely fae. 

Known as the Welsh kingdom of the Tylwyth Teg,
the Fair Folk. There. Now. it has been said. 
A little bit of fantasy, a little bit of fun,
A little bit of laughter, the spell is begun.

Yet, woe betide, any who bring home, a token,
or the fair family’s blessings, will be broken.

Where are the Story Tellers?

‘Some day you will be old enough to start reading faery tales again’ ~ CS Lewis

As a young girl, I used to sit on my mother’s knee, listening to my (Welsh) great grandmother sharing wonderful stories, about the folklore of my ancestral history. Sadly, those days have long gone. However, I decided to research, where those stories originated from.

It has been a wonderful adventure. And so, in honour of my Great Grandmother, I have rewritten her stories, as memoirs, to be saved for my future generations, so that our ancestral links will never be lost.

What stories were you told by your grandmother?

WELSH FAERIES ~ Y Tylwyth Teg. 

Known anciently  as “Y Tylwyth Teg” which literally means “the fair folk”, Welsh faeries typically live in lakes or streams and sometimes in hill hollows.

FUN FACT

It was said, that if your little finger was crooked on the end, it was because you were descended from fairies. 

You have the same power available to you as the fairies do.  It starts with loving the Earth through your heartfelt gratitude and appreciation, but more important, through your actions.  The fairies can help you reconnect in a more intimate way with the Earth, and all they require is your willingness to pay attention to the trees and plant life around you and demonstrate your care. ~ Stephen D Farmer Ph.d 

They’re waiting for you

Spirits of Nature:

The real reason there’s a connection between fairies and witches is simple – nature. Fairies are the spirits of nature, so naturally when witches work with nature, they are working with fairies. 

Fairy Food and Libations: 

Traditionally, fairies loved sweets so anything you’ve baked at home is a perfect fairy offering.

Other Offerings

The fairies are appreciative of shiny things. Sparkly offerings like jewellery, crystals, stones, and glass are appropriate. Fairies like Celtic flute music, tinkly wind chimes, and people who care for the earth and wildlife. So make your gardening ventures an offering to the fey.

Spell Craft

‘Wait, what, uh, are you telling me you can spell the time?’ 

SPELL CRAFT
She’d guaranteed me…

There was magic to be found, in this ancient art,
and that the destiny of soul’s, were ‘written’ in stars. 
How you're all blessed with different names, 
as in, our dates of birth, are never the same. 

That, it isn’t luck, good fortune or divine fate,
It’s something, you should ‘count on’ to contemplate.
To notice the repeating of numbers and patterns;
timing the synchronicity, of symbolic happenings. 

‘Words’ that can unlock doors with sacred keys,
your own secret, time machine, if you pleased.
Through the chaos, you could never have dreamed, 
that each ‘letter’ of a ‘word’ gifts, a simple theme. 

There is the potential of a ‘number’ in rule below,
a hidden code, that ‘figures’ the best path to go. 
The science of ‘Spelling’ is Pythagoras’ craft,
where divine truth is ascertained in its forecast.

Numerology is the ‘light in the dark’ of reality,
a ‘Signal’ to discover, your truth actually.

It’s June, Love

Image: Rainbow Eyes – Pin interest

 

Me: that’s it, I’m done talking about this

*5 minutes later*

… and you know what else

 

 

In Numerology

The month of June represents “SIX”

‘The Essence of Love’

 

FAMILY MATTERS

Whatever may not be quite right in your relationships is now likely to become an issue. It does promise some measure of resolution though, when issues come out into the open, they can be resolved.

This could be a month of passion and tantrums, as you try to make your significant relationships as close to perfect as possible. People being what they are, are bound to cause some drama’s; but the best thing is, that you can tease out the issues and make some crucial changes.

 

HONOUR WHAT’S IN YOUR HEART

Honour commitments to family, while appreciating those that you make to yourself.

Cooperation and pulling together are the keynotes. Caring and sharing are encouraged, but know when, enough, is enough.

 

EMPATHS TAKE NOTE

The lesson of the six is to learn to love and be loyal to your self, while remaining thoughtful, sensitive and caring to your loved ones. Be realistic in matters of the heart.   Don’t sacrifice so much of yourself that you have nothing left to give or no heart to love.

June will encourage you to open your heart wider. When the lesson is understood, it will free you from any blocks you may have around giving and receiving love.  It can also make you want to cut free from relationships or dynamics that  are making you feel stifled or are taking away your freedom.

 

DRAW THE LINES

Ideally, this is a time to know who YOU are. Empower yourself in every instant, create your own reality by your own design. This is the perfect time for you to become much more discerning about who you allow into your life. Examine your boundaries and set them straight.

 

Your June mantra should be:

‘Be Someone, Who Makes You happy’

 

SUPER INTENSE

Bear in mind, that the 2021 vibes of June, are super intensified, within the Universal Month of ‘Eleven’ which is a Master Number representing:

THE SPIRITUAL MESSENGER 

Being the inspired healer and the wounded healer

Hang in there, slow down and get ready for a super, charged heart-centred month.
