Weekly Tarot Story – Monday

Good Morning Everyone! The card that came for us today is Meditation. This card comes it is a sign from the universe to take time everyday to meditate. It helps us clear our heads and regroup from the floods of social media, TV, and daily garbage that drag us down. Meditating can help clear it out.

Now, meditating does not mean you have to sit in a lotus position for 30 minutes or more. Not by any means, it can be for ten minutes while we vacuum, wash the dishes or take a walk.

Just find something that works for you.

Have a wonderful day, Terry

Weekly Tarot Story – Sunday

Good Morning Everyone. My name is Terry and I am the guest tarot reader this week.

The deck I chose to use is Psychic Reading Cards by Debbie Malone and Amalia I Chitulescu. This deck explodes with vibrant color so much that they jump out at you. The card that came for the collective is, Three Monkeys.

I am sure you all remember the Japanese icon, see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil. Today’s message is based on these cute little guys, and for us there are two very different meanings based on the perspective we have of what we’re dealing with throughout the week.

If we see it as three wise Monkeys and we’re aware of our thoughts at this very moment the universe is bringing our desires into reality. On the other hand, if we think three dumb monkeys then we’re not paying attention to negativity and details in plain sight.

Our message today is to pay attention to the thoughts and beliefs that need to be released related to the area of our lives that needs change. Let go of negativity so there is room for positive to flow in.

Have a blessed day
Terry

Weekly Tarot Story – Saturday

Good morning and welcome to the final card for this Weekly Tarot Story from Radleigh Valentines Angel Wisdom Tarot; and our card is Awakening.

Looking back, our week began being told about a potential life altering change coming. Monday advised us we may not have all the information we need, and the Queen of Earth guided us to be practical and organized. Wednesday’s card reminded us to stay focused but then something changed, didn’t it? Thursday and Friday’s card brought in some kind of confusion and disillusionment.

That brings us to Friday an Awakening is needed. Did our life event happen? Perhaps, perhaps not yet but when this card comes to a reading it suggests taking a step back and getting a fresh perspective on an issue. Whatever was going on Thursday and Friday may have caused us to question our goals or our priorities.

When there is a lot at stake we don’t want to be rushing into decisions. Wait and consider potential moves until a clear understanding of the situation reveals itself and we have a sense of peace in our heart. Only then will we know whether to walk away, continue as planned or change the plan altogether.

Have a wonderful day!

Weekly Tarot Story – Friday

 Good morning, here we are at Friday January 14, 2022 and our card is the Five of Fire. For us the Five of Fire lets us know there may be conflict, confusion or lack of organization today. Chances are it will all center around a lack of communication. When everyone speaks at once, no one is heard or understood.

We have two options to take care of this. First we can sit everyone down, give them an opportunity to be heard, discuss the options then choose the best plan. Or, we can step back and let the scenario play itself out then step in and clean up the mess later.

Have a great day!

Chakras and Angels Friday

Good morning, welcome back to Chakras and Angels Friday. This is an Angel week and we’re taking a look at Archangel Gabriel. Like Michael, Gabriel is one of the seven Angels of Presence. Depending on religious tradition the list varies as to members by two or three, but I will be taking a look at all of them throughout this subject of Archangels.

Angels of Presence are seven Archangels chosen by the Godhead to stand in his presence and do the will of the Godhead as directed. Can you imagine standing in the presence of the being who created everything that is, was, or ever will be!

I found two variations of the name meaning; the most well known being Strength of God with an alternate of God is my Hero. While the Godhead is my hero I am inclined to go with Strength of God simply because it’s what I grew up with.

Archangel Gabriel is known as the Angel of the enunciation, and of truth. It was Gabriel that delivered the message from the Godhead to Mary and Elizabeth of their impending pregnancies. It was more than likely Gabriel who spoke with Zechariah and Joseph regarding the birth of the children, and for Joseph the move to Egypt and back. It was Gabriel who dictated the Koran to the Prophet Mohammed.

As I have mentioned in previous articles Angels are genderless. When being seen is necessary they can chose to appear male or female as needed to make the person they are speaking to not freak out, much. It makes the argument of angelic gender a moot point, but from my research Gabriel appears as female more than male.

In meditation I connected with and asked her what she looked like and was told she appears human, is tall, has Golden Copper Hair, and dresses in gold and white. Because she is the chief messenger of the Divine she is depicted carrying a trumpet, but she also rather likes white lilies and is occasionally represented with them. For me she is very elegant, positive and encouraging. The choir Gabriel was chosen from varies depending on its source. Most vary between Virtues and Cherubim. There are characteristics of both choirs which make sense based on her activities. So again, in meditation I asked and she said she was from the Choir of Virtues before being an Archangel.  

The faith traditions which recognize Archangel Gabriel are Islam, Judaism, and various Christian faiths. Alternate spellings associated with these are Jibril, Jabrail, Abruel, and Gavriel. The element associated with Gabriel is water, the direction is west, season is autumn and the crystals you can use to work with Archangel Gabriel are Carnelian, Moonstone and Selenite. Selenite would be a good choice for any of the Archangels. The scents associated with Gabriel are Jasmine, Rose, Eucalyptus, Myrrh and Lily, and finally the day of the week she governs is Monday.   

When looking at the duties Archangel Gabriel carries out for the Divine, they break down into two categories. Overall Gabriel is, first and foremost, the Godheads chief messenger, but both categories come in under an umbrella of Motivation. Archangel Gabriel’s goal is to assist people in growing into the best, highest versions of themselves they can be.

She will encourage and inspire you to follow a dream, take a class; go for that promotion or even to start you own business. The process will be difficult, of course, but she will be there to cheering you on, help you develop the determination and discipline needed to keep you focused on moving forward to make your dreams a reality, and to live your truth.

Being a communicator Archangel Gabriel helps creative people of all kinds, musicians, writers, singers, dancers, designers, and artists. Call on Gabriel for help ensuring a thought or message is understood, to help develop an idea to its fullest, or to find just the right words.

Another area Archangel Gabriel assists with has to do with people trying to have children. Whether you are trying to conceive a child or adopt Gabriel can help. Gabriel also works with babies during the months prior to birth explaining the ins and outs of life here in the 3D. Of course we don’t remember any of this after the fact, but she does and it’s probably a good thing. Just waiting for nine months to be born could be boring.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look at Archangel Gabriel, and that it helped you understand what this beautiful angel does to enhance our lives.

Have a fabulous day

Rose Quartz in the Morning Light

Good morning everyone and welcome back to Crystal Thursday. We are talking about a member of the Quartz family today, Rose Quartz. It surprises me that I haven’t discussed any of the Quartz family crystals yet, it’s a very large family!

Rose Quartz has quite a long history. Beads have been found in Iraq dating back 7000 years. The Assyrians are thought to be the first to find and use it. The Greeks and Romans also appreciated its lovely color. The Romans used it to make seals showing personal ownership of items, or people perhaps. The ancient Egyptians believed it prevented aging. The might have been on to something. Those face rollers are supposed to help reduce puffiness and wrinkles!

Here is the United States it was discovered in Custer South Dakota in the 1880’s and then in Maine in the early 1900’s. Since they both take credit as the first discovery, I thought I’d mention both finds. Aside from the US Rose Quartz is mined in several countries around the world such as Brazil, India, Madagascar, Germany, Namibia, and Canada.

Its name tells us what color this crystal is and that is shades of opaque to translucent pink. It resonates beautifully with the Heart Chakra and comes in at a strong 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness.

When people start collecting crystals and minerals Rose Quartz is one of the first chosen for purchase. Its energy is gentle, nurturing and very much about love. Not just romantic love, but love of all kinds. As a tool for personal growth it encourages self love and compassion.

Now let’s get to the fun stuff and discuss the metaphysical qualities of this beauty:

  • Wearing or carrying a piece with you encourages love to come into your life.
  • It’s said to help conception.
  • It opens people to love
  • It eases the nerves and emotions.
  • Removes negativity and anger.
  • Helps restore trust.
  • Placing pieces around your home encourages a peaceful, loving home life.
  • Placed by your bed encourages romance.
  • Placed under your pillow helps you have a peaceful nights rest.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look at Rose Quartz. If the qualities of this stone resonate with you I encourage you to purchase a piece and work with it. Keep in mind I am not a doctor and sharing the healing qualities of this stone is in no way giving medical advice. Working with it can help but if you are ill see your medical practitioner of choice.

Until Next Time…

Weekly Tarot Story – Thursday

Good morning everyone, I have to say today’s card, the Eight of Cups, was a bit of a surprise but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. This card coming forward speaks to the need to take a look at our priorities and the need to make a big life change. Perhaps this is what Sunday’s card, Transformation, was pointing to.

Sometimes we find ourselves in a place where we’ve felt this sense of general unease for a while and we come to that something’s gotta give. The change we seek could be anything from deciding we finally need to take better care of ourselves to realizing that what was important in the past is no longer and we feel like there has to be more, something different. Maybe it’s time to take a step away from what is toward what could be.

Have a wonderful day!

Weekly Tarot Story – Wednesday

Good morning, we’ve made it to midweek; how is it going so far? The card slipping into our Weekly Tarot Story is the Three of Fire. When this card comes forward it’s an exciting time. The suit of fire is about potential and growth. While the number three is a very creative number it’s also one that can cause distractions.

If they haven’t already surfaced, there could be opportunities coming. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t welcome a good opportunity but we’ll need to remember our long term goals and not get distracted by what might be a “sure thing.” We have a goal, and a plan. Anything new at this point should be carefully considered and balanced against our long term goals for the future. If the research shows it to be a good fit and the risks are minimal, consider it!

Have a fabulous day!

Weekly Tarot Story – Tuesday

Good morning everyone we’re adding a great card to our Tarot Story this morning, the Queen of Earth. This lady is a loving, generous, supportive and incredibly practical. When looking at the story as it unfolds her message is a timely one.

Whether for good or not we are expecting the possibility of a huge change. Yesterday’s card guided us to gather the information we need and today’s card brings the message to get organized.

Our Queen is all about being practical and organized. She is not about avoiding risk, she guides us to avoid foolish risks! Moving forward toward any goal or dream requires a well thought out plan, a clear knowledge of resources available as well as what is going to be needed in the future, being fully aware of what is at stake and staying focused.

Have a beautiful day!
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon  

Weekly Tarot Story – Monday

Good morning everyone, it is January 10, 2022 and our card is another Major Arcana, The Moon. The guidance she has for us is to be aware of the situations we may be dealing with today. The Moon card lets us know things might not be as they appear. We already know from yesterday’s card that a potential life altering change may be in the mix this week. Whether or not it’s already presented itself or there is something else going on chances are good we don’t have all the information we need to make well informed decisions.  

Our best action plan for today is gather information. If we ask questions and listen to our intuition we’ll be prepared for whatever comes.

Have a wonderful day!
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
