TAROT CARD FOR LEO 

(Key Eight) Strength.

FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH

The ‘Strength’ card, represents a graceful figure of a queen and a wild lion, showing that true strength is a combination of many aspects  of ourselves~ the physical, ego, emotional strength & grace. It symbolises being strong on the inside, how well we can overcome obstacles, and being accountable. However, this card is not only about physical strength; it’s also about moral and emotional strength.

The roses around the woman and the lion form a chain. Roses representing desire, must be tended and properly cared for. In this context, a chain of roses is a series of cultivated desires. Any suggestion emanating from a desire sets up a chain reaction in the subconscious that eventually results in manifestation. The cosmic figure 8 shaped curve over her head gives her dominion in this world. The only two numbers that can be written over and over again without ending are ‘8’ and ‘0’ As such they represent divine power.

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.

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

Holy Ring of Light

After Glow of the Moon’s Halo

LUNA: HALO

HOLY RING OF LIGHT, YOU HAD TO BE THERE

After all of the hype, I’m sure that there is no-one on this earth who would have missed that phenomenal lunar eclipse last night. Is it  just me? but I felt that the entire cosmos was hypnotised, in the Heaven’s slip stream. 

It kind of reminded me back to 1969, when I was a young kid at school and we were all gathered on mass to watch the first moon landings. Do you remember that?

As you’ve probably gathered by now, I enjoy looking at life, from different perspectives and today is no different.  

FROM OUR BACK GARDEN

I’m one of the lucky people who live in Western Australia, from our view point; The sky was set on fire at sunset, then, our world turned black, as the moon vanished. Thankfully, we were able to tune into a live casting with the Sydney Observatory. 

RUNNING RINGS AROUND THE MOON

Just when we thought this magnificent paranormal show was over; 

Hubby shouted, ‘Come outside, you won’t believe your eyes’

I ran out to take one last look at the night sky and breathe in the awe and the beauty of the universe, where, I was bedazzled to see our sky, lit up by an extra-ordinary halo of iridescent light around our moon. 

SEE TOP IMAGE

Sighs … to me, in that moment, that WAS the pinnacle of the whole extraordinarily, super, mystical and powerful performance.

THE PROFESSIONALS

I’ll leave all of the professional photographers to work their magic moon momenta’s, as in this image captured my most favourite photographer on earth, Hirsty, who lives in Sydney Australia.

LIMITED EDITION PRINTS NOW AVAILABLE of last night’s rare Super Moon Lunar Eclipse over Sydney capturing all her beautiful phases, from a bright orange glow on the horizon through to the blood red moon during the full eclipse. To secure one of the few remaining prints please email me at info@hirsty.com.au. Cheers Hirsty

I HAVE MY OWN VISION

…I will live quietly in awe, with my own precious back garden memories.

‘What is a Solar Witch?

Something I rise to everyday. It is the sorcery of the Sun’s Magic. 

SOLAR WITCHES:
Incorporate magick into their daily witchcraft, by ray’sing the sleeping awake, helping others, less fortunate to find their natural bliss and joy. Solar Witches consider morning Sun rise and Sunset rituals to be their cauldron of enlightenment. They usually practice their craft outdoors, naturally. 

Many enjoy sharing their sun kisses with earthlings and hope to encourage sad humans to come out of the shadows. Their wish is that others are empowered by the re-energising warm glow of the Sun. The Solar Witches spiritual coven, is nature; here, there and everywhere, that the sun shines.

INTO THE UNKNOWN

‘You’ve  drawn a Blank’ 
‘What do you mean?’

Then where do I start?
where do I go? 

I don’t blinking know. 

Is this the beginning, or is that an end?
to trust in fortune, can I depend?
to surrender the limits, of all control;
is that the ultimate spiritual warriors goal?

Will I be abandoned? Will I fail?
will my fate and destiny, be taken away?
are positive powers, forever in heart,
by chance or luck, how do I start?

Odin's Blank Rune replied;
‘Hush’ 
Lucky is as lucky does;
just breathe, there is no rush’

The Book of Runes. ~ Ralph Blum 

The Blank Rune 

The Unknowable. The Divine. Odin.

“Sometimes we’re persuaded to relinquish control, and when this happens, time becomes more synchronic and coincidence more profound. It’s the same cosmic force, but without so many restrictions. This is when guardian angels can roll up their sleeves to say, ‘Now we’ve got food and shelter done, let’s get to work!

In Tarot (18) symbolises: The MOON:

What aspects of yourself do you hide away?

 

Grow and develop, by combining body consciousness and control.

With realisation of ‘self’, all things are possible. This is a wonderful time for setting intentions, especially in our artistic and romantic lives, or where we are trying to learn to express ourselves.

At times like this, we need to be still, stop the external distractions and once again trust our inner self to see clearly the answer, which will determine our next move, thus ensuring we are staying on the true and right path in our journey through life.

The Moon is all about the subconscious mind and your shadow self. What lies within the depths of your mind? Set aside time to write in your journal, access your intuition and meditate deeply to discover the exciting insights that await you.
