More Here Now

This morning was foggy and cold. I meditated briefly before taking a shower. I should have meditated longer. My mood was just like the astrological weather, Mars cold in the fog who knows where doing who knows what for no reason conjunct Neptune in Pisces.

Mars in my natal chart is in Aries, the fire sign, and opposite Pluto, transformation, in Libra, the sign of balance. Basically that means I have quite a passionate fiery temperament. So, now after a few days of being in this fog, I’m ready to be out! Mercury also went retrograde today. So, I applied for a job. I have to take this Mars aggression out on something.

The tarot card I drew today took me aback a little. The subject’s hair in this one is a real doozy. Today’s self-centeredly drawn tarot card is Queen of Wands from the Wizard’s Tarot by Corrine Kenner illustrated by John J. Blumen.

The image on the card is that of a surreal Medusa. Her blue skin glows in the warmth of the┬ácontained fire on either side of her and in her wand. The Moon suggests the woman’s deep emotional connection and state of illumination. Kenner says of the queen, “She is sinewy and strong, willful and dynamic, confident and self-assured.” These are qualities I very much admire. Today I feel tired, weak, emotional, and yet I feel this desire deep within propelling me toward growth.

It seems this card has come to remind me, I am fiery and passionate. Even though this fog has me feeling unsure about my emotions, Neptune has been working with Mars to cut through some dense nebulous stuff in my heart chakra.

There is a powerful cleansing occurring on many levels within. My cells perceive new energy and are rapidly incorporating it into physical healing and nourishment, like another type of nutrient. There is a simultaneous release of old energy and a freeing of my soul to be more here now in the physical. It is painful and it feels so blissfully good. It feels like a great soothing all encompassing love is filling in those spaces left open.

Tomorrow I am going to meditate longer. It really sets the tone for a good day, when done properly.

The Sun will come out

It has been the busiest lazy weekend in a long time. Comic-con Friday, Disney On Ice Saturday and pure blissed out laziness in between cooking and cleaning. It was really quite nice.

The card of the day is Fog, Veiled from Steven D. Farmer’s Earth Magic Oracle Cards. The image on the card is the promise of the sun breaking through the fog. The valley is covered in dense fog, it will take time to clear.

Let me just say this card does not excite me. Neptune, the planet of spirituality and water i.e., fog, is currently square my Natal Sun, aka Soul, and has been for months. A little bit more fog does not really phase me at this point. Yeah, yeah the fog will break up, because the Sun will come out tomorrow. blah blah blah. Yes, this is self-centered tarot. I am bratting out, because I am tired of the veil.

All in all, my day was very nice. I spent time with my girls. I worked on a variety of projects around the house. Maybe there is a bit of fog veiling the next step in my life, but would I want it any other way? Not a chance. I am too busy enjoying now!
