Archive for July, 2015

Most of all it feels like: Help! Who has been stealing my July?! Where did it go?

But as we all know, things do fly sometimes and apparently it has done so again. Interrupted by the fact that our internet went down for almost a week, and yes, it was a very simple fault and I wish I had been able to do it without having a tech-guy coming over to fix it. Who the *bleep* has to fetch a technician to change a power cord?! Yes, I had to, and no I’m not completely out in the blue when it comes to how to change such a thing. My problem arised when I found out that you can’t do that without stepping over your boundaries on what to touch and not touch at that router. Why couldn’t they make such a thing easy so you could fix it yourself? I actually do know a lot of handy things in the home, including stuff in the bathroom even if I’m not very fond of doing it. And yes, I can change a lightbulb too (joking here so don’t get upset). So when that was all done we went to visit my mum and had a lovely week with her, eating our first blueberries for the record, and taking some lovely photos too. I’ll add some in another post

And now it’s the last day of July, we have a Blue Moon (and I hope it will be visible tonight). Umm, you didn’t understand that part of ”blue moon”? Usually that is when there is two Full Moons in one month. And no, I’m not exactly sure why they call it such. And I can’t remember at the moment if there is a second theory about this Blue Moon and how and why something. This weekend will also be celebration of First Harvest, Lughnasad, Lugh or Lammas. But that is for another day.

I’ve been searching for a suitable and interesting spread for this occasion but didn’t find any of course since I’m out looking at the last moment – again. So I’m using one by Diane Wilks again that I found at Tarot Passages. This time I’m using Tarot of the Sidhe by Emily Carding just because I felt like it. Oh, the spread cloth? I like it, and no, I have no idea of where to find it. One of my cousins bought it somewhere and it is several years ago.

Card 1: What about me is unique and rare? Maker Princess (Page of Pentacles)

Card 2: What unusual subject(s) should I focus on in the coming month? Dancer Five (5 of Cups)

Card 3: What should I do that is out of the ordinary this month? Maker 9 (9 of Pentacles)

Card 4: What message does this Blue Moon have for me? Maker King (King of Pentacles)

I started to think about learning Elemental Dignities (ED) but I don’t think I will jump into it at the moment so this will be one of my ordinary spreads with whatever comes to mind while I look at the cards.

So something that is unlike and rare with me as the Maker Princess is trying to show me then. This is a very pregnant young woman holding a crystal cluster in her left hand. The text underneath says “Gift of Creativity”. I don’t know if I would say that is very unique or rare to be creative but maybe I should do something more about my creative ideas instead of just thinking. I have a gift that is for a friend and her husband and their expected first child and it’s not anything big or fancy, but it will be personal and one of a kind, one for them and one for the baby. Then there is daughters older half sister (same dad) who had a boy late May and there will be a baptizing late September so there is also a chance to be creative. Daughter and I bought some beautiful things at the summer fair too so there is things that could be made if we really like to. Hmm, seems there will be more creative and creating than I thought when I started writing!

 

 

Blue Moon Dancer Five

Dancer Five is telling me about what unusual subject(s) I should focus on in the coming month and that could be interesting with a text that says: “Where Loss Resides”. But it’s not that negative really, of course we have people, places and times in our lives that we miss. Most of us do sooner or later. But there is rays of sunshine coming down where those rain clouds parted and not everything is gray and dragging us down. There is even some red flowers among all the others that’s not so bright. So my conclusion would be, here and now, that it’s absolutely time to find those positive and bright moments among all the others not so bright and gray days. There is something positive, or every cloud has a silver lining it is said. You can’t always look at what you’ve lost in your life even if it’s easy to fall into those thoughts and feelings now and then. Look for the light and the blue sky, the positive things, the love and friendship you’ve got in your life considering how it could have been.

 

 

Blue Moon Maker Nine

Blue Moon Maker Nine

Something I should do that is out of the ordinary this month with Maker Nine as my guide. The text on the card says “Root and Blossom”. The tree has its roots down in the water and the crown is filled with flowers, sun is shining and the feeling is peaceful. No need to rush around like crazy and think that you have to do all the things on your list within the same day when it’s not necessary. The thought of meditation is apparently not taking no for an answer, it keeps coming back as soon as I look at the card. Perhaps that is what I should do? Start some meditation regimen, nothing advanced, just sit down or take a walk and be in the moment without thoughts about must and should bouncing about and having private race competitions in my head. Who knows, maybe I will find it easier to sort out what to do and how to do things with that in mind?

 

 

Blue Moon Maker King

Blue Moon Maker King

Last card with Maker King and what message he has for me at this Blue Moon. The text says “Gift of Skill” and he is standing at an anvil holding some red hot crown in his left hand. Starting with creativity and ending with skill so I think someone wants to have some message through here. I should find my creative side again and match it with the skills I’ve got. Whatever I do will make me happy and perhaps it will turn out useful for someone in the end. The most important part is probably to believe that I am good enough and have skill enough to do it… I’m an expert at not believing in myself usually. And it would be great fun to have some people around to talk to, grab a coffee or tea and be creative with, share your skills and find solutions to problems that arises when you try to do something. And that reminds me that I have to ask my dear mother to help me out with the sewing machine, it doesn’t like me! At least she has one exactly the same so she knows more about how to solve the problem.

So, that’s it I guess. I should do something with my skills and my creativity on whatever levels I choose to, and start meditating again. Some good suggestions for meditation anyone?
