Whistle while you work

The Lover's Path Tarot  I’ve been working with The Lover’s Tarot (U.S. Games Systems Inc.) by Kris Waldherr, 2004.

Today instead of asking the general question, “what do I need to know/learn?” I asked a more specific question.  “How can I make the most of my day?”  For my answer I drew the Prince of Coins (aka Knight of Pentacles), the King of Cups, and the Eight of Coins.  Well, at a first glance it certainly looks promising!  First off, I want to take a look at the keywords listed for each.

  • Prince of Coins:  Opportunities; Hard work; Development
  • King of Cups:  Practical artistry; Mastery; Emotional wisdom
  • Eight of Coins:  Talent; Compensation; Work

This tells me that today’s activities will be productive and should be pretty painless.  Which is quite a relief after the week I’ve had.  Everyone close to me, myself included, has complained of the same symptoms.  Not able to sleep, bad or disturbing dreams, a general crabbiness, a feeling of having a brain-cloud*  when trying to complete even the simplest and mundane tasks.

As my card of the day, (cotd) the Prince of Coins has the drive of the other Prince’s (Knights), but he is grounded and methodical.  He accomplishes much, not by being fast, but by perseverance and staunchness.  Now that the brain-cloud/fog is lifting, it’s up to me to draw on the energy of the King of Cups mastery and maturity and and the talent and satisfaction in doing a job well, that is found in the Eight of Coins.

Allow me to leave you with this thought…”Whistle while you work”

When there’s too much to do
Don’t let it bother you, forget your troubles,
Try to be just like a cheerful chick-a-dee

And whistle while you work
Come on get smart, tune up and start
To whistle while you work

*”You mean you were diagnosed with something called a brain cloud and didn’t ask for a second opinion?”  ~Patricia Graynamore  {Joe Versus the Volcano played by Meg Ryan}

Review – Cat’s Eye Tarot

Cat’s Eye Tarot by Debra M. Givin, DVM (The Cat Doctor)

Cat's Eye Tarot(Introduction)  

No one can say for sure why cats have chosen to live with us.  It may be that they are observers, watching the progress of human beings. Perhaps cats are our spiritual guides.  Even if you believe that cats are merely persuaded by the simple bargain of warmth and food in exchange for companionship, there is still much to be learned from their life strategies.  The Cat’s Eye Tarot deck is illustrated from a feline point of view.  These cats are portrayed behaving like cats.  They hunt, play, love, fight, and contemplate the mysteries of the universe.

If you have ever shared your life with one cat or many, you already know just how individualistic they are.  Much like people (some would say more like women than men) they each have their own, very distinguishable personalities.  But, unlike their human counterparts, they are more straight forward with showing you who they really are.  However, you don’t need to be a “cat lover” necessarily to connect with and use the Cat’s Eye Tarot.

Social Circles & the Cat’s Eye Tarot

     My three card draw for today:  Three of Wands, Wheel of Fortune, and The Hierophant from the Cat’s Eye Tarot by Debra M. Givin, DVM.

I took my queue for this reading from The Hierophant.

When this card appears, some aspect of group identification or your role within the community needs to be considered.  The Hierophant can represent the body of information that guides appropriate behavior within society.  (lwb)

Ostara – Paint a Journey With New Life

Ostara – Paint a Journey With New Life

Did you ever wonder which came first, the rabbit or the egg?   What? You didn’t know that rabbits layed eggs?  Where do you think the tradition of Easter Eggs came from?  I’m getting a little ahead of myself here, I’ll come back to that in a moment.

First of all, a little history.  What is Ostara?  It’s more common name is the Spring or Vernal Equinox.   Equinox  litterly translated means, Equal Night-day and night are about equal length all over the world.  So, it’s Vernal here in the northern hemisphere and Autumnal in the southern.
