As I chat with friends on Facebook this morning, a new chat window pops up.
It is my friend Clarence. He is someone I met years ago, while I was doing Tarot Reading in Elaine's lovely little bookstore, 'Renaissanse.'
He has been a minister, missionary, inventor, designer of meditation gardens, a painter of beautiful pictures, and now is nearly famous for his spiritual tweets, bits of divine wisdom going all around the world....daily.
Last week he went in for some medical tests, biopsies, you name it. Short of breath, thought it might be his heart. And what a huge, precious heart, he has. But it was his lungs. An incurable, rare, lung disease. Go home, deal with it. Merry Christmas.
If there are Angels in human bodies, whispering words of comfort, words of wisdom, words to make us stay here, on planet earth, and not want to go 'home' until our mission here is complete.....he is an Angel. When I ask, what can I do? How can I help? He answered, 'pray.'  And I am. 
5 of Swords. 5 words......An incurable, rare, lung disease.
Swords are forged in fire, and ice cold when perfected. I wonder what is the most painful....the struggle to breathe, the Doctor's honest answers, or the faces of his grandchildren as they grasp to understand what this means.
I believe in miracles, and so does he. Many mornings you will find him in a tiny chapel, sitting silently, reverently, waiting. For the whisper of Wisdom to float up in his heart, to tweet, to spiritually starving souls, across the waters. We all have a pulpit. Just like Moses....when he was arguing with God about how he could not do, any of the things God was asking him to do. And God said, 'What is that in your hand?'  Moses said, numbly, 'a staff?' And God started to show him how many miraculous things He could do with that simple Staff. Shut Moses up for a minute. What is in Clarence's hand? Something to Tweet with. Well, he went right to it. And tweet he did. And still is, every day. You will find him here: http://twitter.com/cvposing
How about that, he is using his other name, Victor......how cool! And still speaking words of Wisdom. Wonder what kind of miracle this will be.....I'm expecting something big!  L.

Joie de Vivre Tarot Review

As a lover and collector of Tarot anything, I received a new Tarot deck in the mail this morning. Oh Joy! I am so enchanted by it; I have to write a review about it! Paulina Cassidy has created the charming ‘Joie de Vivre Tarot!’ Her style of art, her use of color, her images, are so delicate and perfect! I have not set it down since I received it! French, ‘For the Joy of Living’ the name truly captures that child like joy and essence. U.S. Games is the publisher.

I have searched through the deck to find a favorite card, to display for my review, and cannot find just one! So being the Pisces I am, I chose ‘The Moon.’ I also love the night, and the music of the night. Music is the language of the Soul. And she the enchanting musician center stage, Paulina has named Phantasm, with an audience of 3 mesmerized white owls, named Haze, Daze and Maze. Owls, the symbol of Wisdom, just look into their little faces, they are lost in the watery world of stars reflected on the peaceful water of the night. And a colorful dragonfly sitting on the end of the violin, cannot get close enough, I think. The decorated tree the owls sit on, for long past, has lived in the water, and under the shadow of the waves, is a sleepy starfish. I have a starfish that was a gift to me by a young girl named Christine, years ago; I still cherish it, it watches over me as I sleep. And her hair!!! How creative and lovely, not a style many may copy! We moon people delight in being different, in every way imaginable. The last thing I notice is the golden glow of the stars surrounding her as she lights up the night.

A lovely lady of mystery, and wonderful card to meditate on. What wisdom do the white owls hold for you? Take time to sit with them awhile, and see what your mediation reveals.

A must have deck for any Tarot Reader. Even the Rider-Waite diehards will enjoy this one, as on each card, is a symbol from the most traditional Tarot decks. You just have to look closely, and see what else is hidden within each playful card.  Enjoy!

Baby Lisa Irwin, still missing

Search for missing baby Lisa Irwin continues

Updated: 2011-10-24T21:41:42Z

 FILE - This file photo provided Oct. 4, 2011, by the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department, shows Lisa Irwin. Police and federal authorities have been searching extensively for Irwin who was 10 months old when her parents reported her missing on Oct. 4, 2011.

Someone sent me the question, of why I had not done Tarot Cards on what happened to Baby Lisa. I had, but had not posted them. As a Card Reader, you cannot have an ego....and this is so close to home, and so sad, it has personally bothered me. So, tonight, I started over, and ask again, the same questions, which I shall post, and tell you what I see. Also, I used so many cards, I only put the first 3, and the last 3 on here. I will list, beside the questions, what the others were. I am using the Initiatory Tarot of the Golden Dawn, by Giordano Berti, sold by Lo Scarabeo.
Is Baby Lisa Irwin alive?

Yes.  Very much alive. I see a wealthy woman, that has everything except children. The next card, show children around her, happily, a loving mother. I think the Star Card, represents Lisa herself, sometime in the future, a grown woman, beautiful and innocent. Never knowing what happened to her as a baby.

This is the story I got from the cards, questions I ask, and the cards I drew.

'Who took her from her bed, from her home the night she disappeared?'
 Justice, Strength, and the 10 of Wands. I really studied these cards....and prayed over them, what is the answer? I seen an animal in each card. Not showing up as a person, I see an animal...and someone familiar with the Justice system, or the jail side of it, strong and fierce, very angry, and being controlled by another person, he did not work alone.

I ask, 'was it a man or a woman that took the baby from her home?'
 I drew the 8 of Swords, the 9 of Cups, and Judgement. Strangely, to me it said not her mother, she was 'out of it.' Deeply asleep, or unaware. Then I see a man, happy, with food surrounding him??? And a Judgment, or decision to do something, that night. Could he have been at the place she purchased the wine? All the cups hold fruit....fruit that could be changed into wine. She was being watched, and followed. Also, I noticed in the Judgement card, someone watching from a higher vantage point....he could have climbed at tree...or been 'high' on drugs, but high enough in distance... to see in the house and know the mother was alone with the kids, and there was a beautiful baby somewhere in that house. He could have watched the father leave for work....and known the mother was alone. He was watching her.
I also got the numbers, 28, or 29....I believe the man that took her is that age.  And also, in the Judgement card, shows a box, crib, bed, tomb, place you would sleep in peace, and a person lifting their arms up to be picked up by someone.....he knew where her room was and where her bed was. I just drew one card on the question, 'had this stealer of children ever been inside their house before?' I drew the Death card,' no.'  He had not been there before that night. And will never be there again.

I ask, 'will this child be found and safely returned to her mother?'
 The Page of Wands, The Page of Swords, and the grim 9 of Swords. No.
2 People know where she really is, and talk about it. They are the two responsible for this situation. But the mother cries and is inconsolable, with no answers or resolution. A card of pain and confusion. 

I ask, 'Was the mother in any way guilty of the baby Lisa being taken from the house?' No. I drew the Princess of Pentacles, the 9 of Wands, and the Magician.
It was about money, someone waiting and watching....and a Plan. Detailed plan. I really believe it wasn't a plot against baby Lisa, but a plot to steal some child in that time range, and from that city. .....like a two week window of time....and he seen that beautiful little girl, and instantly decided it would be her. She is too young to ever remember this, or ever know the truth. I believe the mother was very trusting, felt safe, and never suspected this horrid thing would happen to her baby.

These last group of cards, are the answer to the question, 'Where is baby Lisa this very moment?' Knight of Swords, 10 of Swords, and the Queen of Pentacles.
She is with other children that have been stolen, and possibly innocent people have adopted, or paid for, as this Queen has the money and is the last card in the lineup. 3 small children show up as Angels....confused and clinging together. This was not the first child he has taken. It was for money, 2 men acting together, one the child stealer, and one the child seller. One looks like a angry animal....one looks like a saintly, fatherly figure. Someone that innocent people, desiring babies would easily trust.

As of this moment, I do not see them finding her. I think she is in a home or will be soon, of a wealthy, nice woman, who had lost a child, and would have done anything to have another baby. So she adopted the baby. Or she will.  I ask if she, Lisa, is anywhere in the United States, and drew the Ace of Swords. Yes.....but such a double edged sword. Yes, but out of reach from her family.  

So this reading sucks....other than I honestly believe she is alive and will be very loved. And never know the truth of her birth, or her kidnapping. She is a stolen child that has been sold. And the adopting Mother, does not know anything about this. She has been told some story that will fit the adopting scheme.  

Update: I cannot get this lost child off of my heart, so I have ask many more questions or the cards, and used a Pendulum, for exact answers, and today, ( I posted this yesterday) I got a bit more information. She can be found, if they focus more on the man coming from the woods, and the diapers and wipes they found in an empty house close to her home. I prayerfully ask, for specific answers, and recieved this: She is in New Mexico, within the city limits of Los Alamos. She is safe, and in a waiting place. FYI, that was all I could discern today. The answers from the Tarot Cards aren't set in stone, just symbols and signs to answer specific questions they are ask. Sort of like a Spiritual Google. I will keep this subject updated....as I find anymore answers.

Really is a mystery

Just wondering......

This seems to be rampant, and I hear it every day, as a Tarot Reader. I honestly try to be nonjudgmental, but some days I just wonder what these women are thinking. And these are
Spiritual ladies. Good women, with wonderful qualities, nothing wrong with them. Except they are tired of waiting. And sick of being alone. And afraid it will never end. I am single, too. I do understand. But if you believe in Karma, or Jesus....'what you sow, you will reap,' or what your wise old grandmother would say, 'what comes around, goes around.'  Then what do you really expect to happen with this choice? And what can I say to you, that will give you hope and patience? Rather than slam the phone in my ear....and find another Reader, that will tell you anything you 'do' want to hear.

The question that is bothering me so much today, is......'Why are so many beautiful women, doing anything they can think of to steal someones husband from another woman?'  It makes me think of this scripture in Isaiah......

Isaiah 4:1

1 In that day so few men will be left that seven women will fight for each man, saying, “Let us all marry you! We will provide our own food and clothing. Only let us take your name so we won’t be mocked as old maids.”

Is this true of women of our time? So desperate for a husband they will do just about anything for a man? Provide their own food and clothing, make sure they bring enough to the table, try to make sure he will choose them, over all the other single, attractive women out there. Not that I haven't done all kinds of things to try to please and show a man I was with (at that time) how much I loved them. I honestly believed I was the better woman....am duly humbled by that arrogance now. I must not have been, as I am still alone. And confused. Is this the answer, how to not end up being alone? Just pick someone you are attracted to, and go after them?

 So, I ask my Tarot Cards, why, why are so many women compromising themselves, having no conscience about going after someone that is married? 

These are the cards I drew.....thank you Ciro Marchetti for this beautiful 'Legacy of the Divine Tarot,' I am using tonight.

The Knight of Cups, The Moon, the 6 of Wands

My spin on this is romance, love, tenderness, someone to play with, be best friends, immerse yourself in the depths of passion. Being alone can make you starved for this, so starved, no one, not your children, or your great friends, or your Faith, no matter how strong it is, can fill that empty place in your heart. Except a man. And there he is, sharing time with you, talking to you, the way he can not talk to anyone else. Playing with this.
 Then we go into the Moon Card, shadows, uncertainty, nakedness, soft candle light and secrets....illusions. This chic reminds me of Bathsheba, bathing on her rooftop, minding her own business, and King David catches a glimpse of her nakedness, her beauty. He goes for her, married or not. Not his proudest moment, and he paid dearly for his choice. As did she, and I always wondered, what was her choice? Did she even have one? Or was she lost in the mystery, the favor of the handsome King, with a harem full of beautiful women, and he chooses her? Was she smitten, or stunned? She obeyed the summons of the King....I would love to know the details of that night.
Then we have the 6 of Wands....time to go. A card of action, victory, moving on. But I only see a 'couple' in the first romantic card, they show up as stingrays....how true. Play, but you just might get hurt. Really hurt. The couple may be together in the shadows of the night, and what a night it is,  but in the light of day, someone is leaving. And 'they' are not together.

 Maybe this is a life lesson. We want what we cannot have, and we do not want to be left behind. Alone. I took this class, and failed miserably. So what can I say to my dear Sisters, who reach out to me for words of wisdom, answers to their questions? Sometimes I cringe, yet I tell them what I see. And I hold out hope, that love does not have to be blind, or painful, or you lose everything you are and have to be with your supposed 'Soulmate.' If he really is miserable, and has married someone he no longer shares his life with, then he should/would joyfully take care of that Other woman, his wife, and give her what she needs to have a happy life. Why can't this be a win-win thing? Maybe she can't stand him and would love to move on, but as I have been told, 'the devil you know is better than the devil you don't know.' So, I really cannot tell anyone out there what their choice should be. I will be honest, and understanding. And hope it has a happy ending.  In this last card, the 6 ( and the number 6 is the Lovers Card of the Major Arcana ) shows, someone is happy. Someone has what they wanted....but it doesn't say who.

What happened to Celina Cass?

What happened to her?

NH town endures 'creepy' wait after girl's death

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — More than two weeks after searchers pulled the body of 11-year-old Celina Cass from the Connecticut River near her house, the lack of an arrest and answers to questions about how she died have cast a pall over her New Hampshire hometown.
Sad and edgy, residents of Stewartstown are waiting — for answers about the girl, justice for her family, peace of mind for themselves. The police's inability to charge a suspect, an autopsy that couldn't pinpoint what killed her and the lingering fear that a killer is at large are hanging over folks in the one-stoplight burg with 960 residents near the Canadian border.
"Everybody's still uncomfortable, wanting some answers," said Shannon Towle, whose family owns a convenience store and gas station where people gather. "It's just creepy."

I wanted to know what the Tarot would say about what happened to Celina Cass. Using the Legacy of the Divine Tarot by Ciro Marchetti, here are the cards I drew for answers.

What happened to Celina?

Well, Death as the first card drawn, means it happened pretty fast. The Emperor is an older man, a father, someone that thought they had power over her, or overpowered her. And the Ace of Cups, in his way he loved her, very sick way, and I believe she was already dead when he put her in the water.

Who, killed Celina? Someone that had been in a hospital, wounded and thinking there was a battle of sorts going on. Was he a Vet with PDS? He was almost child like...had happy memories of her as a little girl.

Will the killer be caught? Yes. It is someone the Mother knows. She is unsure about it....but as she thinks clearly, as she must be distraught right now.......she knows exactly who he is.

How sad, she was only 11 years old. But I think it's not how long you live, it's how well you live and touch other peoples lives while you are here. She is in the arms of the Angels.

Ace of Wands

The last Ace in my series is the Ace of Wands. From the Universal Wirth Tarot Deck.

This is a 'head's up' Ace, full of fire, take action, speak up now, stand up for something or someone. That equal armed cross at the top of the wand, could mean what you do or say could be done to heal a situation.....it might not feel like it at the time, but later you would realize it was the best way the issue could have been handled. Using my alphabet letters to play with this card, here are other things I see in this card.....

A...anger....someone is fiery mad, and it's time to take action, take their power back
B...beacon...flare, signal, beam.....get someones attention
C...clue...the missing piece that fits something you are puzzled over
D...defend....a way to protect yourself, defend yourself if necessary
E...entitle....gives you the power, right, to claim what is yours, now....
F...fray....there could be a battle, family, friend, lover, finally one person says stop, and it stops
G...guide, when you are lost in a cave, you light a torch....this is your torch to guide you, use it
H...honor....someone, maybe you, are raised to a position of honor, enjoy
I....indicator....a sign when you are lost, follow it, it will guide you home
J...jaunty....life of the party, the one that stands out the most
K...key...what you use to open a locked door with, or finding what you need to accomplish your goals in life
L...lethal...stopping someone in their tracks, using force to protect those you love, force you never knew you possessed
M...mastery...complete control, knowledge or skill you use
N...neolithic....what men used in dating, some still do
O...overcome, a sign of victory
P... prize, having won the prize, holding it up for everyone to see....
Q...quell....stop fear, remember who you are and go forth in strength...
R...regain...getting something of value back after you thought you had lost it.
S...secret, only you know something, and no one else will ever know it
T...thin, someone really skinny
U...unite, joining together for a cause
V...verdict, a decision that is made and unchangeable
W...wait, stay still until you are given a sign to move forward
X...a wild card for me.....I say, finally getting something I so desire, and proudly show it off!
Y...you, being handed the torch, it is your turn to carry it forth...go
Z...zest, enthusiasm, passion, fire in your belly

If I were doing your cards and this card came up for you, it would be saying for you to take action, now....of course the cards around it would tell you how, where, and why to take the action. The Tarot will give you all the details, if you just ask the right question....this answer would be a big Yes answer!

Lovely Ace of Pentacles

The 3rd Ace in my musing, The Ace of Pentacles. 
from the Universal Wirth Tarot Deck, one of my top ten Tarot Decks! This Ace is one of my favorites, as it can mean so many different things. Many symbols here to gaze at. Doing my 'Alphabet Tarot Game' I can play and come up with 26 new, old, interesting things to see in this golden card.

If I were to draw this card today, as what do I need to know today card, I would take it as a great omen. Gold, money, opportunities. Open doors in business, new ideas, right in front of me. I love this one.
Playing with the images....here are my thoughts....

B....buffet, more than enough for everyone
C....change, money or a play on words, a change in residence or job
D....diamond....round, shiny, set in gold, bought with gold
E....ecstasy....golden moment in time, pure joy
F....found, something lost, found and cherished again
G....grace or gift, a gracious gift, something precious
H....her. If asking the gender of a newly conceived baby, this would mean a girl.
I....indulge. share, buy drinks, buy supper, buy yourself something you long for
J....jewel, precious stone, a gem of great price
K....keep, or keeper. Something worth keeping, valuable
L....legacy, money or property bequeathed to you
M....marriage. where 2 become 1. wealth of the heart
N....nature, the material world, natural resources
O....offering...giving, sharing what you have
P....passage...such as a raise or a promotion
Q...quota...share or percentage of an amount
R....release.....to set free, new door opens to you
S....secure...one thing that makes you feel secure
T....treasure,  a pirates bounty!
U...utmost, highest goal reached
V....vow, a promise of great worth
W....wealth, a profusion, riches
X....the symbol of a kiss, XOXO
Y....yours, something that belongs to you
Z....Zion....utopia, heaven on earth
One thing I love in this deck, of this Ace is, the 4 wooden branches that hold it up. Wood, something from earth, trees, roots, solid and dependable, giving shade and flowers or fruit. Producing. And delishious.  Also the beautiful shining glyphs....all the astrology symbols showing how you learn to be wealthy is to experience everything  and not judge it. Be it, and learn it's worth. And the leaves in the center, the miracle of growing plants, food for us, life on out planet. And the gold itself, buried all over our home planet. Most of us have a ring or gift we can hold right now made of gold. Imagine having bars of gold, some people do. Having something of great worth. Pentacles always represent solid, real, tangible, something you can have and hold onto. Or give away. It's buried in the black hills, and laying in the bottom of the ocean. It's made into jewelry and coins to stash away. And it stands for something you highly value. An excellent card to draw.

Let life change....trust it. No matter how crazy it gets in the process. Love.

Ace of Swords

A Study on the Aces...

I love the variety of the art in each Tarot Deck. This Ace of Swords is from the Universal Wirth Tarot. Not a Polly Anna deck, but a very realistic view of the meaning of the cards. And another of my favorite Tarot Decks! I have been seeing many Ace's popping out of the readings I have been doing lately. New beginnings. New doors opening, new choices. That is the good news....and endings. Yeah, slammed doors, no, never, when hell freezes over....is the bad news.
So, one this one night that there is no lightning, thunder, pounding rain, I want to ponder this card. And journal about it. If this were my handy notebook I have stuck in my purse and pull out at any given moment to catch an idea that just flew by, this is one of my favorite ways to play with this card. The ABC idea. Any card from any deck will have way more than just one meaning. The longer you hold it, sleep with it, stick it on the front of your computer and just keep it on the back burner in your mind....it will show up all day. And tell you things, you never noticed before! Sort of a Freudian play on images...but this is the way I find out what is going on under my skin. Or your skin, should you call me for a Reading. Be brave, now.  How many ways does this card poke me, wake me up, anger me, calm me. Teach me. Your list may be totally different.....it should be. It would be you.
On a letter I have no idea.....I name it a wild card and put whatever word pops in my mind first. Don't try to figure me out....it's futile. ! Just love me like I am......with deck in hand....and about 200 more stashed around the house....meet the Ace of Swords.

A...Ah, you have my attention, said the lobster
B...bingo, nailed me
C...the current is wicked, thought I would never get caught
D...dagger, desire, dismay
E...enough already. What, you want my head on a plate? I guess you do....
F...frigid, and I thought the water was cold....that steel blade is ruthlessly icy
G...God, Hello... I am praying, remember me? Think I need a little help here....
H...Hell, no. I may look dead, but I clean up well....just hide and watch.
I...Indignant, why are you jabbing around in my watery world? Stay in your element, Air. Now.
J...Jealous? And you think getting rid of me will fix you? Wrong.
K...Keep...me on the string? Keep me waiting? Keep me loving you? I think not. Not into pain.
L...lament.....the choices I have made that I grieve over, the doors I chose that were a blind alley
M...marriage. Ah.....how sweet that sounded. Two become one. Then go back to becoming 2....then 3
N...nettle. A wild plant that stings when touched. Enough said. !
O...Obstacle......you know, those signs life gives us, ROAD CLOSED AHEAD, or this could be a bad idea......and I just think, well, maybe the force is with me today......and it is with the other guy....
P...Pervert...yeah, I said pervert. If someone asks me how their new date will be....looks like he has one thing on his mind....if he pays for dinner, you are dessert. You might want to think about that.
Q...query....you need to ask more questions....and remember, no answer is an answer. Really.
R...red-hot. Angry. Ready to fly off their handle, right in your face. Walk away, Renee.
S...settle the score. A showdown. Maybe one fact, and much fiction. Stay calm.....run fast.
T...Tantalize...you know how it torments a person, or teases a person, to dangle it in front of them, then take it away. This Ace of Swords....could be a double edged sword. Tease or Torture, but don't Touch.
U...unravel.....a teeny fact that has been eluding you, suddenly, this one piece of the puzzle falls out of nowhere....mysterious....and timely. A gift of sorts, but may not feel like it at the time.
V...Victim. One image in this cards seems innocent. One image is intent on causing pain. And all that water to hide the evidence. Maybe, but the Truth will always come out. Just a waiting game. Then the victor becomes the victim. Karma.
W...Wait. As timing goes....this is a wait and see card. Could go any way....sooner or later. Right now....you have to wait. And then, wait some more. Wait.
X...X-Ray.....seeing inside someone. Can help you, or hurt you. There may be something in there you need to know about....this card shows up....there is a source of pain, you need to find it. Mental, or otherwise. Maybe someone has a Voodoo Doll with your name on it.....and a chunk of your hair....better think about that....
Y...You. Time to focus on yourself. Be selfish. Be sharp and keep everyone at a distance. Hold your dagger high, and put the fear in someone. Mean it.
Z...Zap....act fast. Zap whatever is bugging you, so fast it didn't even see it coming. Like a Taser. I had one of those once. Loved the way that little bolt of lightning danced across the top. Made ugly people that didn't want to hear the 'No' word, suddenly listen. Isn't technology amazing?

I still find older notebooks I have done this kind of Tarot Journaling in, and the words always change. I love how the cards bring out the deeper issues. And in an innocent, playful way.  Always edgy, never dull. Not for the faint of heart. !

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day!

Using the 'Vanessa Tarot' by Lynyrd Narciso, I ask the question of the Tarot....what's the secret to being a good Mother?

Page of Coins, Knight of Wands, and Strength!

Keep your eye on the little buggers all the time, they grow up so fast, and always still need their Mother. Looks like she is trying to show this little guy how to jump in the right direction, land on the yellow spot. Maybe she's looking to see if he is ever paying any attention. Some days that would be a no. So, she fearlessly goes into action, kicks him out of the nest, teaches him to fly. But she has a parachute and safety glasses on, just in case he needs help, she's ready to be there. Courage, crack the whip. It may feel like a jungle, they are all wild animals, and they are. Just relax, your Strength is what teaches them to have Strength. It's the hard things in life that define who we are. Push them, love them, just be there for them.
I have 3 children, and love them so much. Some days I question, am I still doing this the right way? And I remember something my sweet mother in law told me....you can never go wrong being a mother, no matter how many times you screw up, if they know, really know you love them. Keep telling them. She was a great example. Good advice!

Japan, why?

Watching the ongoing news tonight, the pain, loss, devastation in Japan. Horrible. And the cry of one lonely voice, standing out....'what did we do to deserve this? All this....why?'
It must be a human condition to always want to know who's fault it is when bad things happen. To any of us. And especially to the ones we love or when it is you or me in the hot seat.
This may be a strange reading....but I learned a long time ago, you cannot be a Tarot Reader and have an Ego. You can be exact on some things, and others, all over the place. We read energy, patterns, intentions. Symbols. I think I am more accurate than our weather man! But so is Joe the Barber! I do trust the details, colors, feelings that the Tarot Cards invoke. But I don't know everything, so I study every day, and learn something new about the Tarot and about God, and Life. I honestly believe, in getting still with them, being precise in my question, and keeping my heart open about whatever the answer may be, helps. And then sit with them longer....just see what images pop up. Journal with it....be fearless, be playful, be humble. Ask questions, then ask more questions....
So, tonight I ask, 'why did this horrible thing happen to Japan?'  And you know it could happen to any of us at any time, so go through all your hoarded stuff and donate like crazy. What you don't use may be all someone else will have in their empty closet.  Back to my reading.....
This first Tarot Deck I drew from is the Rumi Tarot by Nigel Jackson. These 3 cards came out....

The Tower...2 of Stave's...The Lovers

The Tower is true, one day and devastation. The rug ripped out from under your feet. Your family, your home, your work, your life, gone. Changed. Never, ever the same. And your future? Dare we even go there with that question? The second card says 2 Wands will come together, and the quote on the cards is perfect....'I will give you sovereignty without soldiers and armies.' Without a fight. And the Lovers. It's like 2 nations marry. 2 become one. We see the 2 of Wands, the 2 Kings below, the two Wands becoming One Wand in the second layout. Again, two become one. They seem to be offering them love, gifts, hope, clean land and food. They reach out and touch them, take care of them. How wonderful that seems. But with the Ace of Wands and the Tower showing up together...that makes me nervous.
Money, Power, Passion.
I pray it is a good thing, a blessing in the midst of a horrid tragedy.

So I pull out the Universal Tarot by Lo Scarabeo and ask the same question. And I draw these:

The King of Cups...The King of Pentacles...The Ace of Wands

Two Kings come together, unify, becoming an Ace, Super power. A King of the Water, and and King ruling on land, An Olive branch is offered, accepted, sealed. Clear, clean land is in sight. A new beginning. A promise of power that this will never happen to them again. But do you see that grayish cloud that surrounds the arm holding the Ace? Storm clouds, or radiation clouds on the horizon. The country looks stark, empty. Are they being sent there to protect themselves, or others? Like lepers being sent to the outside of town....banished. But promised a shiny new proposition. When you have nothing, anything looks good. I honestly hope it will be. Trusting soul....I am not. I try. But these are Kings in Power, Kings wanting more power, more land, more people, more money.
Then just for kicks, I ask what country, or land, where would this offer or alliance come from? I drew cards that said East of them, a bit North East. So I google my handy Atlas, and there is Russia. North Korea first, but behind that, lots of land in Russia.

I ask my gifted oldest daughter what she thought these cards could mean, as I don't get a warm fuzzy feeling about the layout. She thinks it could mean the other Nuclear accident at Chernobyl......maybe this will cause a couple of our leaders to find a better way to generate energy. And get rid of this dangerous way. I pray so. That Ace of Wands represents fire.......raw fire with great power. But I don't see the sun in this card, in any of these cards. So, where did the Sun go? And 5 out of 6 cards show strange clouds. Might keep that in mind. Look up people, strange things are afoot.
I am Spiritual, and consider my own Faith strong, always seeking, questioning. And always finding Peace. I connect with Jesus, as the 'Father' image is painful for me, so I cannot see God as loving if I envision Him/Her as a Father. Or even a Mother. But Jesus, I adore. I know all the end time fear stuff. Was raised on it....and know we are all going through some kind of test at any given time here on Planet Earth. If you really read the Scriptures....you were warned to be strong, hated, people will want to kill you, and the more you are tested the happier you should be. How's that for Prosperity Teaching? But, the good news is there is a Plan. And I don't have to know it. I just have to pray and love whoever shows up in my path. And focus on one day at a time, and keep my simple faith that whatever any of us need, we can pray to God, The Huge, Awesome, Bigger and More Massive God than we could ever get our heads around, hence we see Jesus. Dressed like a human! Bet he loved that mission...One of us. But there are many others sent, with the same message, Love.  These people all over the world, going through crisis, war, sickness, are our family, our human family.....please give whatever you can and help them. Fast and pray....and hold on tight. This year is one for the books.  Linda

Happy Valentines Day!

One of my favorite Lovers Tarot Cards.....The Tarot Art Nouveau.
Now, that is a kiss. And the roses.....surrounding this card, gifts for his true love.
She looks a bit startled by his embrace, but is that not how Love is? When it comes to you, it does startle one.

May I quote from the Prophet Kahlil Gibran? His wise words of Love....

Then said Almitra, Speak to us of Love. And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them.
And with a great voice, he said:
When love becKons you, you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you, believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to you height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth....
If in your fear you would seek only love's peace and pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threashing floor.
When you love, you should not say, 'God is in my heart,' but rather, 'I am in the heart of God.'
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

And Solomon.....from 'The Song of Songs,'
My lover is mine, and I am his.
Nightly he strolls in our garden,
Delighting in the flowers
Until dawn breathes its light and night slips away. 2:16

To love is so worth whatever the outcome. And the Tarot may not tell you the outcome, that is what this card is, 'Choice.' It is your choice, your dance. Join the dance, you will not regret it. Remember, it's the things you didn't take the chance on in life, you do regret. Live to Love, and Love Extravantly.....every day! In every choice.

Raining dead birds?

Raining Blackbirds ???

Times Square had the ball drop, and Brass town, N. C. , had its descending possum. But no place had a New Years Eve as unusual, or freakishly disturbing, as Beebe, Ark.

On Monday, more dead birds were found near New Roads, La.

Stephen B. Thornton/The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, via the Associated Press
Thousands of red-winged blackbirds fell dead from the sky in Beebe, Ark., on New Years Eve. A worker with the U. S. Environmental Services, a private contractor, picked up a dead bird on Saturday. Around 11 that night, thousands of red-winged blackbirds began falling out of the sky over this small city ab out 35 miles northeast of Little Rock. They landed on roofs, roads, front lawns and backyards, turning the ground nearly black and terrifying anyone who happened to be outside. The cause is still being determined, but preliminary lab results from the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission, revealed 'acute physical trauma' in samples of the dead birds. There were no indications of disease, though tests were still being done for the presence of toxic chemicals. It just looked as if it had rained birds. Last count was over 3,000 birds fell from the sky.


I just had to lay cards out as to why this happened. And I drew The Sun Card, the Ace of Swords, and the Page of Wands.
What would this mean? These cards.....this answer. It was night, not sunny out. Hence I see this a innocent birds being burned by intention. I see the Page waiting for the order to use an implement of war, or harm, this Ace of Swords, to cut them down. No way do I think fireworks would kill 3,000 birds. And they all fall on one town? And it accidentally happened on New Years Eve, knowing fire works would be shot off then? Whatever.
Later now, they have said they bled from their liver and died of blood clots. Really. I think it either was laser, or some high Tc form of a vibrational zap that wiped them out. No accident. And why were the people sent in to clean them up, wearing Hazmat suits? Wake up, people. And today it was in Louisiana.....more fell from the sky? Maybe Chicken Little was right. Something is going on in the sky.....so what is it?
