New Crystals

My newly acquired crystals are gorgeous! The chrysacholla reminds me of Gaia. I am going to clear them in a big container of natural sea salt followed by 528 hz vibrations using my solfeggio tuning forks.

The World

Today is Friday, December 12, 2014. The sunrise was gorgeous. The rain came in the afternoon. We enjoyed a visit with friends tonight. It was fun. We laughed a lot. It’s still raining.

The Self-centered tarot card of the day is XXI The World, Gaia from The Goddess Tarot Deck by Kris Waldherr. I like the image on the card. But, what does this card really mean?

The World is a very big place. I have traveled all the way around it once, and to the other side on three separate occasions. I have an appreciation for the immensity of our planet, and the luxury of modern air travel.

We live in the midst of the greatest beauty. I will always be in awe of our mountains, deserts, beaches, oceans, and volcanoes. Not to mention the sky! Day and Night.

Still I wonder what is the World?

According to Waldherr the card means, “Experiencing connection with the universe. A sense of expansion and hope.” Maybe. I think the generally accepted meaning is that you have the World in your hands.

The World is whatever we want to make it for ourselves, while balancing the fact that we share our Earth with one another. Make it happy. Smile with your eyes and live through your heart. Bring your dreams to fruition! Recycle.

Sage of Orbs

The Full Moon last night really rocked my world. Needless to say I was very curious what my ego-centric card of┬áthe day would be. Today’s card is from the Sirian Starseed Tarot deck by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha. The card I pulled this evening is Sage of Orbs. Orbs in this deck corresponds to the suit of swords in traditional decks. The image on the card at first was rather disappointing considering this deck has the most amazing artwork.

At first, I thought, that looks like statues of Athena. Then I thought, no that’s a man. Someone who is neutral. Then I noticed the staff of knowledge, the olive branch and decided I better consult the book for this one.

Turns out the image is indeed a woman’s figure in fact, “She is a queen, a priestess, a medicine woman, an earth mother.” Continuing on, “She offers all the archetypal figures of those role models of feminine power, appearing at a time when we are moving into the great cycle of the yin vibration as an expression of Gaia’s rebirthing into her higher reflection.”

The image clearing shows an enlightened being. The orb of spiritual knowledge surrounding her head. This may be self-centered, but the card seemed destined for me today.
