Aware and in Control

The sunrise this morning was a gorgeous deep orange-red. The Moon was hanging above the southern horizon highlighting the day’s beauty.

Today’s self-centered tarot card is from the Goddess Tarot Deck by Kris Weldherr. Today was another two card day. Four of Swords fell out of the deck. Behind it was X Fortune, Lakshmi.

The woman sleeping with swords above her at first disturbed me until I realized she was aware and in control of them, even in the sleep state, indicating great strength. Waldherr states, “The four swords are suspended above her protecting her from the outside world.”

The next card, X Fortune, Lakshmi is gorgeous. She rides on the back of a beautiful bird with her twin flame, Vishnu. They survey the valley below and abundance flows.

Things aren’t perfect in my life, but they’re pretty damn good.

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!
