Rose Garden.

The Rose and the lotus are two flowers that both the spiritualists and poets wax eloquently about. The rose is known as the lotus of the west, because of the way it unfurls it's petals to reveal its heart centre, and the rose is the definite symbol of love. Gardens are truly magical places, they …

Full Moon in Leo.

If you are stuck in a deadlock with someone or about something, ask yourself if it is pride or ego that is getting in the way of an acceptable solution and making you dig in your heels more than normal? The cards ask you to work towards resolving this dilemma, to keep your focus on …

Home.

The message from the cards is to look around your home and see what needs to be seen. This will give you an inkling to what wants to be seen in your life. If your house is looking or feeling too cluttered, figure out where you are failing to draw boundaries for yourself. If it's …

Release.

Yesterday, I was reminded that it was Mahashivratri and how the message of finding beauty in everything was so apt. It feels that today's message of release is a corollary to that - Shiva does encourage you to purge the negative and impure from your inner and outer world. It is time to release yourself …

Beauty Way.

Today's message is to see and create beauty in the path that you walk. Take time to smell the roses, see the beautiful blue sky, look at the stars and feel inspired by the splendor of the universe. When you look for it, you will see it everywhere. Just for today, don't look to fix …

Princess of Swords.

The Princess of Swords is a packet of energy, bright and alert, she runs about with the enthusiasm of a child and talks non-stop like one. She seems to thrive on almost a kind of nervous energy, as if there was too much inside her to say, the wheels in her head always turning. The …

Angel of Song.

Israfel is a herald, a beacon, her song, sung out loud, is a calling for an ending. You may find a shift today, a difference in how to think or letting go of an old belief or pattern. Suddenly it will be clear to you - how you want to be, who you want to be with, what you want to believe.

At ease.

Sukhasana is the at-ease pose or the happiness pose and that's what this week feels like. Being at-ease. Unlike savasana, which is the relaxation pose, Sukhasana is just being comfortable. It is the ease that comes from feeling the stability of the earth beneath us, from the spine which has the support to be straight …

What energy do you bring into the room?

Our energy and vibration speak so much louder than words. When we go over to someone's place we usually carry a little something (a plant or a gift or wine) with us but we also carry a big thing that is our energy and vibration. When we take ourselves because of a sense of obligation …

Just fly little bird.

The Dove swoops in today to give this lovely message for the week. Like the flight of the bird, in order to soar in life, you need to know when to flap your wings and when to let the wind carry you upwards. The Dove comes with the message of balance between doing and being. …

I am not the same person I was yesterday.

I am not the same person I was yesterday and tomorrow I will not be the same person I am today. Every day is an opportunity for us to reinvent ourselves but for some reason, we remain committed to who we used to be. Maybe it is a feeling of being stable or maybe it's …

Rapunzel.

This image of the tower reminded me of the story of Rapunzel. It has many interpretations I am sure but the one that strikes me at this point is of the struggle for the unattainable. It starts with Rapunzel's parents who long for a child and then steal the fruit from the witch's garden, the …

Dragonfly in Summer.

Dragonfly in Summer. Acrylic on canvas. Twin paintings. Dragonflies are a symbol of transformation and rebirth. They are also a hello from those who have crossed over. In flight their wings are invisible to the naked eye - they are said to vibrate at a frequency that straddles realms. The dragonfly' flight over water represents …

Doing the right thing.

The Hierophant is about doing the right thing or even saying the right thing. You may be struggling with an issue and are unsure about what the right thing to do is here. The card does suggest doing the right according to your own moral compass, with an addendum to do the right thing which …

Fear makes courage.

Confrontation - wanting to, being able to, and not drowning in guilt after - is something I have been working on for some time now. I have been telling myself that I'm a zen person, that I like to walk the path of peace but the reality is that I'm quite a phatoo when it …
