Wash Away Your Burdens ~ As you have moved through life, you have undoubtedly experienced moments that have inspired feelings of regret, remorse, shame and guilt. You have made promises you have not been able to keep. You have judged and blamed yourself and others. You have burdened yourself with feelings born of acts that cannot be undone, which still bind you to the past. It is time to forgive. It is time to lie down in the healing waters and let them wash away your burdens so you can move forward with Spirit cleansed.
Let Go Of The Old ~Are you holding on to beliefs and notions that no longer serve you? Are you blocking your own growth and forward momentum because you fear to end a chapter in your life? It is time to release all that you hold onto that no longer serves. It is time to say goodbye to all that no longer has a place or purpose in your life. It’s time to have an emotional, or physical spring clean. It’s time to let go of the past so you can be open to what the future may bring.
A New Day Dawns ~ Today is a new day. With the dawn comes an opportunity to begin again or embrace something new. Create what you wish to create. Become the person who you dream of being. Do not allow your doubts or fears hold you back, for this day is bright with hope and good fortune. Go forth and greet it with a smile upon your lips and joy in your heart.
It has excellent response to command and question.
I was doing some commands and then I wondered how it performs as a dowsing tool.
You aren’t able to see my hand here but I can assure you I was not purposefully influencing the swing of the pendulum.
Here’s a little video, and I guess I can claim status now. 😘 Gotta love a pendulum telling you you’re a queen and a goddess. I think the Orion is my new best friend, lol. 😉
I wrote a letter … to whom is but a dream, real none-the-less.
The hue of you is near translucent, I can see all of your cracks and scars. Fire’s flame reflects off you in a gentle glow.
Rose petals fall softly, surrounding your form, their sweet aroma filling the air.
I was a wanderer among shadows bumping into everything that gifted a bruise.
But then I saw the flickering light which drew me near, somehow smothering my fear.
You welcomed me, saying I was the “entertainment”, a thing to be used, not cherished.
And so off to the shadow I move once more, leaving you and flame behind.
The wind howls and temperature drops.
Yet I am warmed by dignity and wrapped in self-respect.
All I want, indeed, all I need.
When I was finished with my meditation I decided to draw a few cards. Looks like there is more to be seen and understood … much more.
See the Signs ~ We are often sent small signs in the form of synchronicities and coincidences. Be watchful. Do not overlook them in the everyday rush of life. Words, numbers, and symbols that repeat, animal and birds that appear on your path, people who come in and out of your life at odd or similar moments, and those flashes of knowing when you believe something will happen with every fiber of your being ~ these are all things you are meant to see and hear; messages from Gaia and Great Spirit sent to aid your journey.
See the Truth ~ Do not be deceived. Be watchful and mindful of the illusions others weave around themselves, and that you may weave around yourself. Know the night. Understand the shadows. See through the darkness to the light of truth. Pay attention to contradictions. Notice when actions and words are not in harmony. Hone your intuition and insight so that you may know the minds and hearts of those around you – and yourself – and trust in the wisdom born of that awareness.
Challenge Your Perception ~ You cannot challenge an out-dated perception or one born from a lack of understanding if you are unwilling to put aside your feelings and beliefs and embrace another’s point of view. To do so makes you aware of the whole and stands you up on high where you can see that both parties involved in a dispute can act against an injustice. Both can be right, both can be wrong, and what one may perceive to be harmful, may be seen as both healing and beneficial by the other.
I did a powerful self-love ritual last night. You know how I know it was powerful? Because once I closed my circle, released my prayers, and went to bed, I lay there with a steady stream of negativity in mind. Five hours worth. At one point I even heard someone say, “I hate you”, among many other really bad things.
I woke after hardly any sleep, feeling the love once more. I decided to pull some tarot cards to get a feel for the day.
Hold the Space ~ Hold things together. Don’t make any sudden moves or changes. Stand strong, knowing you are where you are supposed to be.
Set Your Sights Higher ~ Go beyond your limitations and believe that the impossible is possible.
Be Fearless and Stand Strong ~ Don’t back down. Make your opinions heard. Don’t settle for second best.
Feel Loved and Comforted ~ Allow yourself to be cherished. Mother Earth is protecting you with a shield of love and light.
Trust in Higher Forces ~ Trust in your angels, guides and ancestors. If you have given your power away, claim it back.

Even when you aren’t in motion, you are making a choice. You are being prodded to make a decision now. Don’t worry about not making the right one. Every mistake brings us lessons and opportunities. The amount you can learn is immeasurable. Base your choice on love and the best option for you. Imagine that ‘failing’ is not part of any of your choices. What will you choose?
Ideal Course of Action ~ It is easy to be overwhelmed in the planning of a new endeavor. Simplify your plans. Clearly envisage what you would like to accomplish and find ways to ensure you can stay on path. Eliminate self-sabotage or other behavior that might derail you. Determine what you desire next. Do this through daydreaming and visualizing what delights and inspires you. Trust that this is an important phase that is necessary to maintain alignment and clarity.
Vulnerability ~ You May be feeling like you should withdraw. This is an opportunity to wait and regroup. You are in need of some rest and relaxation. You might even be feeling overwhelmed. Take some much needed downtime. Take in your surroundings. Notice the season and the changes that are taking place out in nature. Things are continually evolving. Think about the clouds you see in the sky. They are constantly moving, changing and reshaping themselves. Allow yourself to connect with Mother Earth and nature in a deeper way. Align your rhythm with the heartbeat of the Earth and slow your thoughts and emotions down. Trust that everything will work out. The signs that things work themselves out are all around you. Take notice.
Keep Your Dreams Alive ~ Start to identify plans and actions that will lead you to achieve your dreams and goals. Your dreams can become your reality. This is a time when you need to be able to apply detailed planning in order to manifest your dreams and realize goals. You need to remain focused on the practical side of things. Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. It is easy to be distracted by more ideas and concepts. Keep focused on what is realistic and achievable. Your common sense and pragmatic approach will lead you to a solution that actually works. Begin taking steps that will bring you closer to your dreams.

My Tarot Card Name is Queen of the Mountain, and as a 13 year old I was visited in the astral by a male who stood atop the highest mountain, and he, without words, told me he was mine. I’ve always referred to him as King of the Mountain.
