The Smirk

Today is a beautiful day. It’s sunny and warm. The sky is a beautiful pale blue with wispy clouds in the distance. The promise of springtime is in the air.

Today’s card is the Adept of Crystals from The Sirian Starseed Tarot deck by Patricia Cori illustrated by Alysa Bartha. The smirk on this adept’s face shows his sense of power and over indulged ego. Cori says of the adept, “passionate, at times impulsive, filled with vitality and determination to advance.”

Crystals are beautiful. The one in the adept’s hands is powerful. With great power comes great responsibility. This card reminds me that while I am capable, I still have much to learn.

Tomorrow I will be installing a new car battery. Not one of those easy peasy under your hood car batteries. My car is a Volkswagen, so I first must partially remove the driver’s seat. I’m sure my patience will be challenged, but it will all turn out with me getting what’s hopefully not the last of the cheap gas!

Amongst Other Assets

Today is a good day to write. The weather was weird today. The clouds hung low and it snowed, but not quite in the valley. It rained a light drizzly rain. Work was fast and furious. The evening with my kids was nice and long. I like when that happens.

My self-centered tarot card for today is VIII Strength from the Sirian Starseed Tarot Deck written by Patricia Cori, illustrated by Alysa Bartha. The artwork on this card makes me want to go out and buy the original.┬áThe strength of the tiger made more so by the flames. The woman dancing in the flames balances the tiger’s aggression with her halo of eight stars amongst other assets.

Patricia Cori states, “This key teaches us that inner strength is as much about gentility and grace as it is about force and fierceness, the vital and even sexual animal response.” My day provided many opportunities to balance my inner animal with grace. My ego nearly came out and showed its teeth. Still waiting for the sexual animal response.
