The Magician of January

Image: What sort of magic power do you have?

 

In Numerology the Tarot card representing January is:

The Magician’

Key 1

The Message: Unique. Pioneer. Also known as The Enchanter. Magus or Juggler.

 

Always stay on the bridge between the invisible and the visible. ~ Paulo Coelho

 

Do you think only magicians can perform magic?

There is no such thing because we all have the same capabilities. It is all about tapping into that potential and using it in the best way possible. That is what magicians do, they tap into that potential. Let your mind become still, by becoming patient.

 

YOU ARE READY TO TURN YOUR IDEAS INTO REALITY

The Magician is one of my favourite Tarot cards and represents the conscious mind, which is concentration and singleminded attention to a specific idea or goal. Every moment of our waking lives is motivated by some kind of desire. Look at the ideas ‘The Magician’ is offering you.

 

HEY PRESTO!

The Magician card stands for ‘reveal’ as in a magic trick. Now is the perfect time to move forward on an idea that you recently conceived. The seed of potential has sprouted, and you are being called to take action and bring your intention to fruition. The skills, knowledge and capabilities you have gathered along your life path have led you to where you are now, and whether or not you know it,

 

HOLD THE VISION

Poof!  Now here’s a new idea, why didn’t you think of that before? Truth is that you probably had that intention all along.

Hold your vision to see what can be done and have the strength and fortitude to do it.

AND SO IT IS

 

The Magician card is numbered One – the number of new beginnings and opportunities

2022 is the Year of The Lovers

Image: Claire Roige Photography

In Numerology the Tarot Card representing the year 2022 is:

‘The Lovers’

Key 6:

The Message: Love Relationships. Partnerships. Family. Co-operation.

 

What could make you feel more connected and loved by your partner? 

 

‘Partnership is giving, taking, learning, teaching, offering the greatest possible benefit while doing the least possible harm.’― Octavia E. Butler,

The Lovers are an obvious reference to partnership and marriage. encompassing all pairs of opposites: Male and female. It is the self, independence and unity.

But it is not just about physical relationships but about the inner synthesis, between opposites, that has to occur before it happens with another being.

Balanced relationships or enlightened ones, come when first we love ourselves and act, at all times, as integrated and whole beings, for it is by acquiring perfect equilibrium and inner unity, that we can truly merge with another with integrity and equality.

 

DO YOU LET LOVE IN?

While every relationship is unique, it takes dedication, work, and love to make it work. Sure, there will be ups and downs but working through problems together is what makes relationships stronger.

This year, there will be an urge to create a peaceful, loving and comfortable environment, surrounded by family and friends. Domestic life will be your highest priority.

The Lovers can be a powerful card that helps you get clear about your own values and find harmony within yourself. Don’t settle for relationships that won’t let you be yourself

 

‘Love me for all that I am. There is no need to fix me. No need to think there is something wrong with me. Never make me feel that I am alone’ —r. m. drake

The Year 2022, in Numerology

Image: NR Hart

 

Happy Heart, Happy Home

 

In Numerology

The year 2022, adds up to SIX

Meaning: Family. Social responsibility. Love. Compassion.

The three things most dear to the heart of this year are beauty, harmony and home.

 

You’ll want to protect, nurture and love your family and home. The issues of commitment, family and responsibility all dominate. This is the cycle of a happy heart and happy home. It’s a perfect time to be a homebody.

 

THESE ARE YOUR PEOPLE

“Everybody has a home team: It’s the people you call when you get a flat tyre or when something terrible happens. It’s the people who, near or far, know everything that’s wrong with you and love you anyways. These are the ones who tell you their secrets, who get themselves a glass of water without asking when they’re at your house. These are the people who cry when you cry. These are your people, your middle-of-the-night, no-matter-what people.”

Shauna Niequist

 

Having someone genuinely care about you is a gift, that should never be taken for granted. Whatever may not be quite right in your relationships, is now likely to become your focus. This could be a year of passion and tantrums, as you try to make your significant relationships as close to perfect as possible. Remember, that people are who they are, but you can tease out the issues this year and make significant changes. Don’t put your blinkers on and insist that everything is fine, when it is not.

The welfare of others will be of utmost importance. This is the number of the giver. But you must learn the balance between giving and receiving.  You need to beware of giving too much as well of clinging to your ideals, especially when it comes to the idea of a perfect relationship.

It is a year for learning the lesson of ‘codependence’ that is not to suppress your needs for another and not go overboard with responsibilities.

 

Your Mantra for 2022 should be:

‘Communication is Key’

 

CALLING ALL EMPATHS:

You can say no to people and still have a kind heart.

The main aspect of being an Empath is feeling and experiencing the emotions of others. For example, an Empath can tell when another is nervous, when one is angry or sad. They may enter shopping centres, or busy peopled places, and feel an array of strange sensations wash over them like a tidal wave. This is due to the gift of being able to feel…

 

Observe, don’t absorb.

Blood Money

Blood Money

Did you know?

Steven didn’t take a single dollar from “Schindler’s List.” He felt it was “Blood Money” because it was making money off of the holocaust. So….he’s has donated every dollar he would have received to groups that educate about the holocaust and fight Anti-Semitism.

Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes

We’ve laughed, gasped, smiled and cried; 
looking at life through his cinematic eyes. 
We, suspended of our humdrum beliefs,
as iconic instants, of magic he tweaks.

Looking through the mirror, in his eyes, 
pursuing sharks, soldiers, aliens and spies.
Steven Spielberg has that dyslexic gift,
he recognises things, that others miss. 

A puff of thought, an eye steering trace,
precise tuning in, to plot; lights of space.
Pan over there, ‘Who’s calling out’
tilt down, ‘What this movie is all about’

A point of thought, all images in view,
as each camera angle, is zoomed true.
He’s in their mind, he’s in their soul,
planning directions of scenes to flow.

Spatial awareness, ‘presence’ is his key, 
aware of surroundings and their relativity.
Location, distance and personal space,
a master of moods and emotions in face.

Life with learning differences

Steven Spielberg was diagnosed with dyslexia in his 60s. Teachers thought he was lazy, he was bullied by students. He said finding out as an adult he has dyslexia was “the last puzzle piece to a great mystery that I’ve kept to myself.” 

 

Film Making Style 

I see things others miss.

Painting Words

PAINTING WORDS 
Unkempt children with dirty feet, 
weary peasants, plodding streets. 
Weathered hands and pallid faces,
living on faith, in dowdiest of places.

Concern flickered in his attentive eyes, 
wishing to paint ‘lives’ in their true light.
An inspired, sensitive and visionary man, 
the power of his heart, held in his hands. 

Words of colour, stroked from his brush,
immersed in nature, an emotional must.
A palette betwixt the colourful and dark,
an ingenious master in the tender of art.

Illuminate paints, in quest to understand,
infinity of life in Gods magnificent lands.
Casting artful eyes over natures scenery,
sensing the harmony, of universe clearly. 

Breathing the frequency of existence into air,
time was stilled, portrayed in magical flares.  
Forward thinking and a way ahead of time,
colouring enthusiasm between his lines.

Painting coloured words, to what he saw, 
influenced by Charles Dickens, gift to poor. 
The passion of his starry eyed expression,
were epileptic traits of spiritual impressions.

Laden with creations, meaningful treasures,
awe inspiring legacies, akin to your pleasures.
Victoria Healing ~ 5.1.2.2021

FOREWORDS

Vincent van Gogh absolutely loved Charles Dickens

Vincent wanted to “Paint what Dickens had done with his words”

Van Gogh was an avid reader and admirer of Charles Dickens. He remained devoted to the Victorian author throughout his life.

In a letter to his brother Theo, Vincent wrote of his ‘Irresistible passion for books’ and that the study of literature was as essential to him as his daily bread. Van Gogh created albums for his family and friends, containing poems and prose he selected himself.

Vincent collected images of everything that appealed to him, pretty much like his own Pinterest.

Similarities in the personality traits of famous people who have epilepsy.

Would it be a ‘coincidence’ that both Vincent van Gogh and Charles Dickens both had epilepsy and were obsessive artists and writers? They each had the typical clingy emotional personality and were fascinated with spirituality and religion

Robert Efron commented on epilepsy in the Neurological Journal ~

‘The most intuitive people are diagnosed by the least’

The Ghost Whisperer

Image: The Charles Dickens museum
“It is required of every man’ the ghost returned, 
‘That the spirit within him, should walk abroad among his fellow man and travel far and wide and if the spirit goes not forth in life, it is condemned to do so after death’ 
~ Charles Dickens


THE GHOST WHISPERER 
With magical quill, he spelled dreams,
in a dark world, as bleak as it seemed. 
In black and sodden, cobbled streets,
raggedy children, shuffled on bare feet. 

The smells of neglect and overcrowding,
shadows flicker, loomed, overpowering.  
Polluted with poverty, grunge and grime, 
the hungry gaze of dull, feverish eyes.

Gusts of wind, rattled on broken panes,
swiping smoke off braziers, fiery flames.
In the smut of Victoria's, industrial era,
many, lived in poverty, scarcity and fear. 

The derelict, invisible, trapped bones,
in desolation, the homeless all roamed.  
Great Expectations, were to be had,
when he penned the good, in the bad. 

A true alchemist, of generous and kind, 
wandering about London’s slum’s at night.
The tired bodies slumped against walls,
wrapped in filthy blankets and shawls. 

He wrote about each one with humility,
offering hopes from squalor into dignity.
Where their aspirations, could be real,
freed from the aristocrats, pitiless deals. 

Ghost hunter, hypnotist, wannabe magician, 
with caring heart, penned of epileptic vision.
Bringing joy and benevolence to the sad,
stressing the wrong, in moral evils of bad. 

Invoking spirits of past, future and present,
Charles Dickens taught the miserly a lesson.
‘A Christmas Carol’ published for the greedy,
jangled in changes, for charity of the needy.

More than a century after Dickens has gone,
his empathetic, parables are still passed on.  
A wordsmith who seized our imagination, 
wringing the hearts, of each new generation.
