This is Part One of a series of posts…

As physical, mental and spiritual beings it is important that we address the needs of all of these components in order to stay healthy, balanced and whole. If we ignore the Spiritual self and cater to and indulge only the physical, we lose connection with our Higher Self and are driven and guided by our most primitive urges.

If we hermit ourselves away to a life whose sole intent is to ascend out of the plane of incarnate existence, we deprive ourselves of one of our most powerful vehicles of Divine experience- the knowledge of being a Spiritual Being having a human experience.

The bridge between these two aspects is our mental self. The seat of the intellect and analysis that can by seed of thought ascend to the heights via use of thoughtforms or create and manifest into being by use of invention. The care and keeping of a stress-free mind is an area that much has been written about, but still remains tenuous, at best, to take hold of in our fast and over-achieving society.

One of the ways I “steal away” for positive reflection is through the use of visual triggers. On my work desk are a selection of items, each connected to its own story of some joyful, relaxing stream of thought. I only have to look at a particular object and allow it to transport my mind to a place of serenity that I’ve built in connection with that object. In as little as 3-5 minutes, and using a very discreet method in the midst of a work (or potentially stressful setting) I have calmed my mind, set the intent of serenity around myself.

Musings From the Mystic Path
The Month of March
Seeding Fertile Ground

v2x-lxds-1

The Month of March heralds the stabilizing of the Vernal Equinox and an opportunity for growth as the scales are reset and what you choose as your “fresh start” has cosmic support. As we move into the 3rd month of this year there have already been monumental changes at all levels of our lives. The transition at the time of the Equinox into the astrological sign of Aries, sets a new tone of fiery energy that can  be the burgeoning of newly found passion and drive for new adventures and opportunities, and most importantly balancing your personal scales of what matters most to you.  

This month’s issue is focused on using those Fires to quicken what we plant in the fertile grounds of our attitude of hope, intention and higher purpose. Just below the…

The Chariot in the Toth Deck and Taking Control…

Tarot for Troubling Times

Where Do I Have Control?

Last month the draw was Key VIII-Strength and that set the tone for what was needed in this coming year. The second draw brings us to Key VII-The Chariot (and, yes, I promise that I did shuffle adequately). All in all this key following that of Strength is a call to learning how to navigate successfully as we stand anchored between polarized forces.

Toth Key VII – The Chariot

Stand strong as the ground
Beneath shifts in the journey.

Stand strong as the four
Guard and guide this journey.

Stand strong as the holiest
Of the Holy’s radiates out.

Stand strong knowing that you
Have control of the outcome.

And the victories that you
Bring into realization
Are no longer bound by
Heaven or Earth.

 The Toth Key VII of the Chariot speaks to the mysteries of bringing into the place of glory the lessons…

Full Moon in Leo
7:33p.m. (EST)

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
5:34p.m. (EST)

Sun in Aquarius

Tomorrow evening the Moon waxes full in the astrological sign of Leo. We remain in the solar month of Aquarius and the earth will cast its shadow on the Moon in the first eclipse of 2017. This auspicious event is considered a penumbral eclipse which occurs when the outer (or penumbral) shadow of the Earth blocks part but not all of the Sun’s rays from reaching the Moon. And, in terms of the cosmic line-up, Earth stands midpoint as the Moon travels behind and the Sun is in front.

Apart from the astronomical/astrological import, the spiritual nature and metaphysical overlays of these archetypal energies can be accessed most effectively in aligning Strength and Will to Action (Sun) – Manifest Form (Earth) – and, Intuitive Flexibility (Moon). If we take this approach to the work at hand, we become the midpoint as earthy representative and call into ourselves the polarized aspects of Father(Sun) and Mother (Moon); Aquarius (Air/Mind and Vision) and Leo (Fire/Will and Guardianship).

Tarot Key VII – The Chariot

Let me guide the task at hand
I hold within my center
All that is needed to
Produce what you most
Desire.

About this Key:

The Tarot Key VII- The Chariot – speaks to control and mastery that is hard won and only emerges when you step into your own power. Who and what you exert that mastery upon is guided purely by past experience and being anchored and centered in the space of balance acquired from the synthesis…

Musings From the Mystic Path
The Month of February
Rising Up!slide2

The Month of February stands as a space of settling in after the pace of the holidays, anticipation of what a new year may bring and heralds the coming of balance at the Equinox and the promise of a shift into new activities and ventures. This year that space of settling in has issued the calling of standing strongly in what you have settled in to as your beliefs, philosophies and how your personal stance rises up in response or reaction to what is occurring on the political front.

This month’s issue is focused on the challenges of a new presidency, fraught with uncertainty and anger. There are articles of personal experience and perspective from those who attended the Women’s Marches and an opportunity to actively engage in an audio Ritual Pathworking that was…
