A lot on my plate

I liked the card more before I knew there were two waterfalls. My heart is open to a relationship, but it’s fully committed my children. My heart chakra is pretty open though, so who knows?

It was cold this morning. The wind was blowing. Snow didn’t quite reach the valley, but blanketed the hills.

Today’s self-centered tarot card is 2 of Seas, Love from the Mythical Goddess Tarot by Sage Holloway with artwork from Katherine Skaggs.

2 of Seas, Love

Two dolphins! I never thought of yin and yang as depicted in this card’s image. I want to go play in that pool a little closer to the waterfall. This card is the equivalent of the two of cups in traditional tarot. Typically depicted as two full and/or overflowing cups.

Holloway explains, “Two waterfalls flow into one, just as individuality forms the basis of true union.” It’s feeling a little Days of Our Lives here. Then she really kills it by eventually saying, “Open your heart fully to the relationship you deserve.”

Really? I guess. I have a lot on my plate right now. I’ll call you? Gotta run!

Note the astrological symbols in the card the plus person is Venus, while the sideways 69 is Cancer. Venus is the planet of love and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. The Moon rules emotion. Venus in Cancer is a happy time.

Astral Vacation

My Self-centered Tarot Card of the day is The Chariot from the Wizard’s Tarot from Corrinne Kenner, illustrated by John J. Blumen. The card comes as a bit of a surprise. I was not expecting to draw such an empowered woman on her high flying broom. My energy feels weak and weepy today. Much is happening in the image. The witch is in Egypt flying above the palm trees, pyramids and sphinx. There is a dog or coyote that seems to be her protector. Pi and the Moon frame her star adorned hat brim. It seems as though she is on a journey in search of something important. Her spirit guides protect her in her quest.

Today is a weird President’s Day. I stayed home with the kids today, since there was no school. Before the kids woke up I was in the shower. By the time I was finished and went downstairs they were ready for pancakes, eggs, and bacon. After breakfast I was planning on going grocery shopping, joining my parents for lunch, and then going to see our counselor. Grocery shopping was put off until after the appointment, and then never happened. My parents and I never quite connected to meet for lunch. The counseling appointment ended with me feeling worse about things. Things are not bad, they are just hard. It is hard being a single parent. I strongly advise against becoming one unless it is your best alternative, which it was in my case. Nonetheless, it is not easy.

Kenner writes something that stays with me, “The band of her hat features shimmering glyphs of the astrological sign Cancer. The stars of the constellation Cancer are swept up in the bristles of the broom, too. Cancer is the sign of home and family life–but astral projection makes it possible to see the world without leaving home.” Now the reason this really sticks with me is that our counselor suggested a vacation. A vacation seems completely out of reach at this point in my life for a multitude of reasons.

My plan is to do some fun things around town with the kids for spring break. We’ll have a nice little staycation. I’ll do some astral travelling and see the world in my dreams. Luckily I have already seen the pyramids, but only from the air. Weird kind of like this card. Did I just connect timelines?!? February 2015, meet July 2001. I only saw the pyramids from the air, because I was en-route to New York City after contracting Malaria in Calcutta (Kolkata).

Really what I need to do is keep on writing about how to apply spiritual tools to our everyday lives. Tarot is one such tool. Meditation is probably the greatest key to unlocking our latent spiritual gifts. Crystals inspire me and make me feel good. I am excited to go to our local gem show this weekend. I may be offering some crystals and related items for sale on my website soon.

If you too lack the time, money, or energy to take a vacation by all means take an astral-vacation. I hope to start tonight!
