Not every day, but many days, I get to view the Magick in our lives, the true exquisite amazingness of being here and being alive. Today was one of them, so was yesterday. Sometimes I’m overwhelmed with the stresses of just living, then in pops some damn wonderful reminder. It’s very exciting, each and every occasion.
One of today’s moments was a tiny detail that I noticed on our card. How long have I had this deck? And yet this afternoon was the first time I was made aware of the super small flowers and leaves down in the bottom left of this illustration. They struck me as the epitome of Autumn. Also, they simply just STRUCK me. As in, they got my attention.
Most likely I was gifted in their appearance, because as the definition says, it’s time for that. Or maybe it was because I had been out for a quick ride around the neighborhood, and I thoroughly enjoyed the fall colors and attitude. Or, all of the above, and it was Magick.
“The Altar Priestess ~ 39
preparation, prayer, sacred ritual
The stage is set and the world is waiting for you to take your place in sacred meditation and prayer. As your Ally, the Altar Priestess brings the ritual of reverent interaction with the mundane world. You are being required now to see everything as sacred, all of life as a meditation and every action as a prayer of devotion. When you are able to perceive the world in this way, your question will lead you to the appropriate answer.
If all is sacred, how can anything be wrong? Ask how you can shift your consciousness to see your circumstances through the eyes of the Divine and you will realize how perfect and sacred everything is right now.”
She arrived in the Direct position today, but she wants to show both sides of the guidebook’s definition. Just in case it might be helpful .
Are you degrading yourself in any way or lessening the importance of your impact in your world? Have you allowed someone to dishonor you? Have you failed to stand up for your beliefs in order to get something you want? The Altar Priestess warns that continuing on this path could bring you trouble, as you may be aligning yourself with lower ideas as your companions.
Another message she brings is this: never sell yourself short when it comes to your intuition. You are always led to the highest ground when you follow your inner guidance.”
Do you all remember when the game Trivial Pursuit came out? Or, if you aren’t that old, maybe you played it anyway? My brother coined a phrased we took into our every-day lives after the family had been gathering around the board a few times at the kitchen table. He called it the Rule Of The Triangle, or Pie Piece Rule. Whatever was the first thing to pop into your head, the minute the question was read, would be your answer.
In his case, he often had the plastic triangle spit-glued to his forehead while he comically “focused” during his turn, the better to “receive” the waves of knowledge zooming through the atmosphere. He did this because he’s inherently hilarious and also, to tease me. Even all those years ago, I was very much like I am now, immersed in these psychic-friendly ideas and beliefs, the type that sometimes provoke ridicule. (His was never mean-spirited, just to be clear.)
The best part is, he was right, there actually IS a Universal Law that translates very similarly. Here’s our proof, The Altar Priestess confirms it. (I’ll be sure to tell him this next time we’re all seated around Mom’s table.) So our message today is a deep and far-reaching one. We need to remember, both with laughter and with passion, that those images we are shown are real. Those thoughts that spring brightly to mind are gifts. The insights we are able to discern can be a thrillingly powerful new avenue for us to walk.
All we have to do is listen, be aware, entertain the concept that the sacred is everywhere, never contained and never diminished. All is holy. If we let it be. Including those times when we travel down the pathways of the mundane.
In Out-And-About news (speaking of the mundane), Dan and I had a few errands to run and saw LOTS of FLPs. Including this one, which was NOT my pal Barb.
The one with the heron!
Or possibly it’s an egret, I don’t live in Montana, so I can’t say for sure. Also spotted: South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Plus the usual more-than-we-can-count Californias and Washingtons.
Ohgawd, speaking of our neighbors to the south, I overheard a California girl yesterday as Dan and I were pedaling home in the pouring rain. She was mincing up a driveway, in high-heeled sandals, a light sweater, and a head full of blonde curls, sort of mumbling under her breath, in a whiny Valley Girl accent (which I will try and capture here), “my-an, I rully hate Organ.”
If I hadn’t already been enjoying my hideously-raingear-clad self elf, THIS would have brought happiness to my entire week.
