Good morning. I was compelled to go in a different direction with today’s post. I hope it resonates with you on some level or another. This quote from Kurt Vonnegut surprised me. I didn’t expect something like this from him.

A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.  Kurt Vonnegut

Instead of a meditation, I am sharing a few minutes of powerful affirmations that are sure to uplift your day!

I was drawn back to the Rune Oracle Cards today. Look at all the passion in this image! It makes me think of the Olympics.

The rune Kaunaz is tied to fire, which is at once a carrier of light and heat, but also destruction. Each time that something new enters our lives, youthful energies are set in motion, and our gaze is illuminated by prospects that we had not taken into consideration. But we must not let ourselves be blinded by illusions or overly devouring passions.

It’s a good idea to reflect on how the strength of desire becomes part of our life and transforms it. After all, each action or manifestation begins with a thought. Are we able to achieve what we want, or do our dreams become a destructive force? Are our ambitions commensurate with our potential?

Kaunaz increases our vitality, makes us resourceful, and is excellent in regard to emotional issues.

There is absolutely nothing I can add to that, other than to use our passions and energy in a positive way.

Instead of pulling a Dragon Oracle Card today, I was drawn to my Angel Oracle Card deck. I love this card and all that it implies. Plus, it matches perfectly with the Rune card above.

Life Review. Archangel Jeremiel: "Take inventory of your life, and resolve to change or heal anything that is unbalanced."

That’s it! Make it a great week!

The quote I am sharing today hit me in a powerful way. Think about it. How often do we find ourselves being silenced and denied? How can we grow and flourish under such duress? I do not want to ever turn my blog space into a political arena. But the overturning of Roe vs. Wade just set women back a hundred years – silenced and denied. I have never believed the government had any right to dictate what a woman can and can’t do with her body. So, this is not political, but social.

This meditation is perfect for finding your hidden strength.

Consulting the Tarot cards brought rather confusing results, so I’ll try my best to interpret them in a general way that hopefully everyone can relate to.

The Eight of Pentacles is a card of apprenticeship and mastery. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, you are working hard to improve your skills and become a master at what you do. It may indicate further education or study in order to hone your skills. More broadly, the Eight of Pentacles suggests you are working away at the finer details of the various aspects of your life, in an effort to continuously improve your situation. You may be unhappy with your current state, and you know you need to make some important changes in your life to increase your overall satisfaction. This card is a positive sign that you are committed to making those changes and to ensuring that you give yourself the best possible chance. Overall, this is a very hard-working and conscientious energy that is present in your life. Keep doing what you are doing as it will eventually lead to success.

The Two of Wands indicates you are exploring your options and carefully plotting out the path ahead, accounting for all possibilities and potential challenges. You are open to growth and exploring new territories, so long as you maintain a level of certainty that your efforts will work out in the end. It is important that you establish a clear plan before moving ahead. Contemplation, introspection, and expansion are the keywords for this card. The Twos in Tarot often represent decisions of some sort. With this two, you may make a choice between sticking with what you know or taking a risk. 

The Seven of Cups is all about choices, opportunities, and at times, illusions. Often, the Seven of Cups can be a sign of wishful thinking and projecting into the future about what you would like to create, rather than taking action here in the present to make it happen. This card is inviting you to move out of the ideas and options phase and choose. Each will have its pros and cons – it’s up to you to make sure that the option you select is in alignment with your purpose and your Highest Good – even if you feel somewhat paralyzed by the options available to you.

MY TAKEAWAY:

I struggled with this reading because the question I approached it with, was regarding human rights. But the cards took me down another path, which tells me the situation and question I had in mind are out of my control. And isn’t that true? So, going with the cards, we are encouraged to keep honing our craft, to stick with what we know while contemplating the future and what it may or may not hold for us. We always have certain choices in life and it is wise to look at those choices through realistic eyes.

Your thoughts?

I absolutely love this Dragon card, but then I love them all. 🙂

Still feeling the need for a bit more, I drew from my Angel Oracle Card deck and this is what came up.
