Every now and then we have to take stock of where we are compared to where we want to be and ask ourselves a few, perhaps difficult, questions.
For me, these questions began back with the July eclipses. They threw us into a portal of transformation that there is no option but to travel. As we move through this portal, the energy encouraging change is getting more and more intense. We must be willing to make necessary changes to heal and grow, or be left behind. We all feel the pull to make changes in our lives. It can be scary! Sometimes we would rather stay where we are and be miserable than take any kind of risk. But, that is not living. It’s existing.
The reality is, the universe will never drop our dreams into our laps. We need to do the work to make it happen, and this is where I am right now. I have been working toward my dreams, but at the same time I knew I could be doing more. Fear is a dream killer. It will always find a way to make you question yourself and what you are capable of achieving. Earlier this week I had an appointment in Madison. On the drive up I was talking with Papa about my hopes and dreams. During this conversation a black car went by me, the plate read REAPSOW. My initial reaction was disappointment. I thought I had missed the boat and I would never get where I want to be in this lifetime. After some reflection I get it now; that’s not the case. What Papa was saying is a job half done will never yield a full result. Yes, I have been working for years, but I’ve not necessarily been all in. I split my focus, I have too many irons in the fire.
I have a couple of projects I want to focus on and to that end I am making some changes. Instead of dropping this blog, which I considered, beginning Monday I will be doing two tarot posts a week instead of The Daily Draw. I will do a reading for Monday through Thursday, and then my usual Weekend Ahead on Friday. At some point I may go back to a daily tarot draws, but we’ll see how this goes. Some things are scheduled and published several weeks in advance so they will not change. I’ll simply maintain the que.
I am combining two of my Facebook pages. I have my Element and another called Life Support. Each is a spiritually based, so why not combine them and create more focus. I have a live morning prayer Monday – Saturday at 7am on Life Support, and that will continue, in the future, from the Element page. My Dark Moon Tarot will continue and I am hoping to get back to the #MondayMeditations and the evening lives sessons as well,.
Bottom line, I need to be more diligent about building my brand, and getting who I am, and what I do out there. Streamline all my focus and efforts on the projects that are nearest and dearest to my heart.
Have a fabulous weekend. Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
As today is the Dark Moon I thought the Moonology Oracle Deck would be a perfect choice for the weekend reading. The message our cards have for us is to be patient and not focus too much on the details. It can be easy to get lost in them, but Look at the Big Picture is here to let us know this is a time to step back and see the big picture. What are we trying to build? What is it we want long term? The details can come later, right now we need to know the overall plan. Confidence is Your Key to Success tells us a new door is opening. This means we are going to have work to do. It also means we have come a long way to get where we are. Don’t be afraid to shine! Have Faith in Your dreams is our final card for the weekend. It tells us to not give up on our dream. It is going to take work, commitment and discipline. If we stay focused and keep trying, we can accomplish anything!
Have a fabulous weekend! Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
I began adding the bottom card to the daily draw because I discovered some time ago, quite by accident, that it tells an important part of the story in a reading. The bottom card shows us the underlying energy of a situation, what is motivating us or holding us back and sometimes it shows us the path we need to take. Today’s main card is Keep Your Dreams Alive. This seems straight forward enough. Our card tells us to take our dreams from our head and begin making them a reality. It encourages us to get to work planning, to be realistic about our expectations and to stay focused.
Our bottom card, Inner Truth, shines an interesting light on the card. This card directs us to examine our thoughts, truths and our feelings. If we look at our dreams will we discover that they are ours, or are they someones elses? Is the path we are following still one we want to be on? What will make us happy and what do we really want our life to look like? These are interesting questions that require us to find and answer before we can make a move. Let’s take the time to get a good honest look at what is motivating us. Stay open to opportunities that may come up and most important, once we know which way we’re going, get started.

I just love the synchronicity of this. Our cards are telling us to get moving and this is a One Day! This number is brave, bold and perhaps a bit arrogant. Just enough to believe that there is no stopping us!
I chose two orange crystals today, Carnelian and Tangerine Quartz. Orange is the color of the Sacral Chakra. This is the center of our passion and our drive. Carnelian helps motivate us and gives us the courage to let go of fear and get moving. Tangerine Quartz, as does all others in this very large family, holds all the qualities of the family and has some useful qualities of its own. It gives us self-confidence and helps us get things done.
We have had quite a few Major Arcana cards lately, we have two more today and it’s an interesting combination. Our card is the Medicine Woman with the Clown as the bottom card. The image of the Medicine Woman is beautiful. The woman appears to be seeking guidance. She has a shell; something is burning in it and the smoke is rising into the night sky. Behind her head is her spirit animal, a night hawk. I love the feeling of serenity, and balance this card has with both the moon in the sky and the sun appearing to be shining from inside her it’s difficult to know where she ends and the background begins. We can see an aura around her but she is dissolving into her surroundings, becoming one with the universe. The medicine woman’s message for us is that we are creating our future today. We shouldn’t try to control the outcome of things. There are higher forces at work on our behalf, so pushing our agenda could not turn out well. Pay attention to your intuition and let things flow.
Our bottom card, the Clown, is full of possibility. With a number of zero, he is complete and unafraid to be spontaneous, to take a chance and set out on blind faith for whatever adventure strikes his fancy. Together our cards tell us that our destiny is up to us. We are surrounded with opportunities and the more connected to our guidance we are the more confidently we can follow our bliss in whatever direction it leads.

Today is a Three day and the creative, uplifting and intuitive energy will go a long way to helps us manifest the reality that is perfect for each of us.
The crystals I chose to accompany todays cards are Charoite and Labradorite. Both helps us bring in new energy but in different ways. Charoite helps us release old thoughts and beliefs that don’t serve our highest good, opens us to our spirituality and helps us find our souls purpose in this lifetime. Labradorite is my goto crystal when I need to make a big change in my life. It is all about releasing our inner magick and transforming our lives.
Everyone has something that they dream of doing or someplace they would love to go, maybe even someone they would like to meet. Some people set out to make the dream happen and others just dream. Longing is here to ask us why we might be holding back. Is someone stopping us from doing or pursuing what we want? Are we scared to try. The reality is we are the only ones that can make decisions for our lives. Of course we need to consider what our family and friends think, but the final choice is ours to make. Whatever it is we are dreaming of, today is the day to get started!

Today’s is a wonderful energy, we have a 33/6 day. This is a very high energy, creative number. The energy is perfect for beginning a new adventure.
We have Prehnite today. This crystal helps us let go of fear and gives us a boost to get moving toward new ideas, dreams and goals.
Thank you BJ for today’s guest reading!
People often have the preconceived notion that in order for a dream or goal to happen a list of things must happen first. Sometimes that’s true, patience does have its place in every journey. The list can also be an excuse. It could be that our wait is over! The Son of Fire is here to ask us if we are ready for a change, for something to positive to happen? Today could be the day.
Our card shows the image of a warrior; like the knight in a more traditional deck he is ready for action. He has his tools and in front of him is his plan, a painted image of his goal. The sky behind him is orange and yellow, telling us of his courage and confidence. The white streaks of cloud hint of the purity of his dream and a successful beginning. In the middle of all that is a giant Thunderbird is rising with lightning flashes directly behind our warrior. In Native American cultures the Thunderbird is a symbol of power, inspiration, and creation.
The message our warrior has for us today is to watch for the signs and be ready to act on a moments notice. A flash of inspiration can come from anywhere. Throw out any idea that you can’t succeed and don’t be afraid to take a chance on yourself and your dream. Have a clear plan, if you don’t have one, make one and get going, you can do it!

We begin the month of March with the powerful energy of an Eight Day. Combine that with the full moon and we have an open door to possibility. Today we have the structure, the confidence, the inspiration and with our intuition on full we can make anything happen.
I chose Sunstone and Carnelian today. These crystals work with the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras to give our passion, courage and creative ideas a boost. Sunstone helps us overcome fear and clears away the things that are blocking our life purpose. Carnelian is a wonderful choice when we need both courage and creativity.
What an excellent card for today! The Father of Air is here to give us a little push by asking what we’re waiting for. In the Tarot the element of air is about thought, intellect, revelation, analysis and even movement. The image on our card shows a man riding his horse. Both our rider and his steed have hair askew, telling us they are in motion. The clouds in the background are ablaze with the colors of creativity, passion and abundance. This hints of an idea, desire or perhaps a project we are working on. Father of Air is here to tell us to stop avoiding the issue or a situation that doesn’t seem to want to go away. We know what we want; we know what we need and today we should trust our instincts. Whether it is a work or personal matter, we could be in a position to make a positive change. Make sure all the facts are in and get to it!

Today’s universal number could not be any more perfect. We have an 11/2 energy today. This is an 11/2 year and the universal month reduces from a 13 to 4. Eleven combines the energy of both the God and Goddess making the energy strong and intuitive. The four is about building a solid foundation. We have a lot of co-creative energy going on today so, take advantage of it!
I thought about using Lapis Lazuli, Sodalite or Flourite. All are good choices but picked Amethyst. This crystal, like Clear Quartz is a powerhouse. Amethyst enhances creativity and intuition, it is calming and clears negativity. Perfect!
