Spring Break Tumbled Stones

The tumbled stones that went with me today are perfect for spring break. Greens including malachite, chrsoprayse, and amazonite for healing and growth. Red tiger eye and pyrite for worldly business pursuits, i.e., grocery shopping.

Latent talent

I see pink in the clouds as the Sun sets. It is a cold blustery day. I saw an extraordinary number of geese land in the alley across the street from my house this morning.

Today’s card is Four of Pentacles from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr. The woman in the image is beautiful, young, and living in abundance. I love how the pentacles are lotuses in this deck.

The card immediately makes me feel like everything is going well. The meaning attributed to the card by Waldherr is, “Wealth and prosperity. Stabilizing material forces in life. A family inheritance-this could be a talent, money, land.” Most likely a latent talent I have no idea about. I’m pretty sure my family has no money and no land, aside from that we live on.

My life is beautiful. Just like the image on the card. Appreciation smiles through my eyes.

Fun with Fire

The big news this week is the Full Moon in Aquarius, conjunct Uranus (on top of my natal Jupiter) forming a grand fire trine with Jupiter in Leo and Mars in Sagittarius. The real news is probably that Pluto is going to be squaring the Moon. The eclipse is going to hurt a wee bit and surprise the hell out of us. Anything for the best of the universe and all involved!

The self-centered tarot card of the day comes from The Goddess Tarot created by Kris Waldherr. Drum roll please, and the card is X Fortune, Lakshmi. The image on the card is the beautiful Lakshmi in a traditional red Indian sari on a giant bird with her boyfriend.

Today was a beautiful blue day. The sun beckoned me to explore. Unfortunately my day job kept me indoors. It was a productive day. The kids were in good spirits after school.

We are excited to be setting up a new aquarium. We spent some envisioning what we want to have and ordered some plants. Co-creating is a lot of fun!

At this point, I really do not see how this card has anything to do with what transpired during my day. Time for enlightenment from Waldherr who states, “The Hindu goddess of fortune and prosperity, Lakshmi is believed to be attracted to sparkling jewels, which are like the riches she bestows upon her favored worshippers.” Guess that guy has some “sparkling jewels.” Perhaps this card was reversed when I pulled it this morning. In which case Waldherr describes an individual as “… pessimistic, disappointed, unexpected endings or beginnings.” Nailed it.

Really I am just disappointed of the image of Lakshmi and all of her fortune and prosperity. It looks vast, but how much does a person really need? Maybe just enough to keep it interesting, like me and the fish tank.

Now that I think about it, I am kind of pessimistic about this whole Lunar eclipse thing in two days. Here comes the new beginning/end. Whatever. Moon conjunct Pluto square Mars didn’t kill me. Looks like I might be about to get stronger and have fun with fire doing it!
