Initiate Peace

For the next few months, I will choose cards from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

The Lovers + Queen of Swords + 5 of Wands

The cards tell a story. The imagery, numbers, and symbols weave together to provide a vision of what lies ahead. The subconscious calls forth the cards needed to communicate this vision and help us see the truth in our situations. It is our job to tune in and pay attention to the messages that emerge.

This week we find a combination of cards which encourages us to move in the direction of others and to do so lovingly. Venus is now in retrograde. This aspect can put a strain on relationships if we are not conscious of our behaviors and patterns. The Lovers card is a card of merging. The coming together of two souls in the name of love. The sun shines down on the individuals who have made the choice to love. The heavens celebrate their union. During this time allow the energy of the Queen to come in with her clarity and bless your relations. Approach communications clearly and with a sharp mind. Your intelligence will serve you well at this time. Do not allow emotion to overrule your logic. This clarity supports you in moving through this retrograde period smoothly and with little disturbance.

The 5-a number of change indicates that change is coming to your relationships. Change is not always enjoyable but it is a constant, one that we can not avoid. The way to move through this change smoothly is to do so with focus and adaptability. Focus on your prefered outcomes instead of worrying about all that could go wrong. Adapt gracefully instead of holding onto past ways of being. Your blessings are forthcoming only if you prepare for their arrival.

If you want peaceful relationships, initiate peace. If you want balanced relationships, initiate balance. If on the other hand you want to engage in discord, that option is available to you as well. It really is your choice.

Be clear in your intention and send out what you want to attract.

Ogun, Clear the Path

For the next few months, I will choose cards from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

Ace of Swords + 2 of Chalices + 6 of Chalices

One day Orisa Ogun was deep in the woods enjoying his favorite pastime, hunting. After some time in the bush, he headed towards a nearby stream for a drink of water. As he approached the stream he heard two men arguing. The men had both caught the same fish. One hook was in one end, the other’s hook was in the other end. The men were arguing over who the fish belonged to. Ogun encouraged the men to calm down and listened to their arguments. Both men were stubborn. Neither of them would calm down long enough to come up with a fair and diplomatic solution. “Enough!” Ogun yelled. His voice echoing through the forest. In an instant, he pulled out his cutlass (machete) and cut the fish in two. Problem solved. Each man received an equal portion of the fish they had caught.

Ogun has come to cut the fish in half. Are you are facing a stalemate? Is there someone in your life who you are not seeing eye to eye with? Are you arguing/fighting over resources? Ogun says no more. It’s time to cut the fish in two. He has come to bring a fair and balanced solution to your situation. You will move from discord to peace. Arguments will transform into mature discussions. Unhealthy relationships will be repaired. Peace offerings and offerings of love will replace anger and hatred. Camaraderie, love, and contentment are being offered at this time. Be open to peaceful resolution. Be open to love.

It's a Miracle!

For the next few months, I will choose cards from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

10 of Swords + 3 of Swords + 6 of Swords

Oh boy. First of all, let me just say that I’m sorry. This energy is heavy. It’s filled with contention, depression, feelings of betrayal, and defeat. Some of you are going through an extremely tough time or are about to. Such is life. We cannot know the feeling of joy without the feeling of despair. Are you arguing with someone? Fighting over resources? Has a lover broken your heart, yet again? Whatever it is, know this. This too shall pass. You are moving through this energy of discord and peace is on the horizon. It may not feel that way but I promise it’s true.

The cards indicate that there is a way you can leave all this negativity behind. Are you ready to hear the message?

Leave behind negative, heavy thinking. Our thoughts can exacerbate situations. Making them better or worse. I write this from experience. Stop looking at that person or situation as the enemy. Look at the world through rose-colored glasses. Look at the world and your experiences through the lens of love. For some of you that may sound impossible. Just a couple of weeks ago I would have felt the same. And then something miraculous happened as I sat before my father Ela. He told me I needed to chill. He told me, through Odu, that sometimes people act out and hurt us because of their own troubling experiences. In that moment, compassion flooded my body in a way that it never has before. Instantly my anger and resentment melted away. I stopped thinking negatively about my situation. Instead, I am sending love and I will receive love in return. Shift your thinking, shift your situation.

You got this!
