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.

Shit Happens

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

9 of Swords + The Hierophant

We all have those days. Days when we struggle to get out of bed. Days when unhappiness settles in as if it's a companion. It happens. Depression happens. Sadness happens. Disappointment happens. This is life. We would not know what peace is without the occasional depressive state.

Is this one of those days for you? Is this one of those weeks? Are traumatic memories coming up for review? Welcome to humanity. Whether people show it or not we all have our moments, days, weeks, and months of despair. Today’s message says the way to pull yourself out of this funk is to look towards the heavens. You are being encouraged to adopt or create a formal spiritual practice that will pull your awareness away from depressing thoughts. If Islam resonates with your spirit pursue it. Whether it’s Ifa, Judaism, Hinduism pursue it. If your spirit is calling you to spend more time in meditation, do so. Adopting a spiritual practice and creating rituals will support your healing. Get to it!

Don’t Hesitate, Just Do it!

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!

Knave of Wands + The Wheel

Each human being has the capacity to create wondrous things. Everything you are looking at, right this moment has been created by one of us. The phone or computer you are reading this on was created by a human. The technology used to transmit and receive this message was created by a human. You may draft an email, cook a meal, or decorate a room. These are your creations. We are creating all the time. We were created to create! There is no doubt about it.

Do you remember that idea you had? The business idea? The idea you had to improve an existing technology? That new recipe? Do you remember? Or perhaps you’ve had several brilliant ideas and watched them fade into memories because you failed to make them real. Today is the day. Now is the time. Stop hesitating. Stop making excuses about the kids, work, or your lack of time. Stop.

As children, we created all the time. We allowed our imaginations to run wild and we followed without hesitation. Allow that youthfulness back in. There is a creation within that is ready to be born. It is communicating with you. It is tugging at your pants leg screaming “Let’s Go!” Pull forth that creation. It may not start out very sophisticated or pretty. In fact, it may look like it was drawn, written, or put together by a 5-year-old. That’s ok. Let it come forth in its immaturity and then play with it. Turn it around, upside down, and stretch it. If you must, delete it, tear it to shreds and begin again. Do what you must. But know this. This thing, this creation, this song, this dance, this business is your key to fortune. It is your key to fortune both within and without. Don’t hesitate. Just do it!

False Sense of Hope

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

2 of Swords + The Stars

I am in the process of writing my third book. Drumming up the discipline to write consistently has been no easy task. Yet, I keep pushing. At one point, the main character comes to a crossroads. She is faced with a major decision but has a great deal of confusion as to how she should proceed. This decision can and will alter the course of her life. Her mind says one thing and her heart says another. Her confusion stems from a false sense of hope. Hope keeps her from seeing the truth that is right before her eyes. She hopes circumstances will change enough to fit her vision of how things should be. Chances are they won’t.

When we ignore the truth and replace it with our hopes/dreams we choose to live in illusion. It is okay to be hopeful, it is not okay to use hope as a crutch. Are you accepting the truth of a situation or are you simply hoping things will change? Hope doesn’t alter reality, actions do.
