Seasonal Shifts

             As much as I’d like to embrace being a Luddite, and shun all technology, truthfully, there are parts and pieces that I actually enjoy.  Like this.  Just being here.  And, ya know, having any sort of music, just there, whenever I need some.

             Today’s message addresses our love/hate relationship with change.  How necessary, and yet, how challenging.  How we WANT to throw a fit and scream, “no, nothing new!”

             Spiritually speaking though, we really do need it.  And, it really is good for us.  The merest lean towards acceptance is so SO very healing.

             Here’s what I was made aware of this morning, what we are being asked to look at, and absorb:

Newness

             We’re timely, too.  It’s the first day of Fall, so all of Summer is technically gone now.  This is the moment when we have to face the death/rebirth cycle.  Again.

             On our card altar, this being a Special Day, we have a Special messenger.  How difficult was it for the Ancestors to adapt, originally, to this gift?  And yet, now, we can’t imagine our lives without.

“Horse  ~  20  ~  Personal Power

When first introduced, Horse strengthened and deepened the people’s view of the world.  It afforded them greater understanding of the land because it allowed them to explore the horizon on a level never known before.  With obvious links to movement and travel, Horse sanctioned the exploration and conquering of the physical setting, the breaking of boundaries and the expansion of tterritory

In similar fashion, Horse Dreaming embraces the essence of Personal Power and what it means to spiritually journey within in search of inherent wisdom.

Personal Power represents the wealth of knowledge we may accumulate over a lifetime of experience which, when honoured, shifts from the mundane and familiar into a world of unlimited potential.

According to tradition, a Horse stands symbolically at each of the four cardinal points on the great Wheel of Life . . . . Each of the four directions offers a sacred gift of Power and a wealth of corresponding energetic wisdom.

 It is up to us to go out and spiritually seek this knowledge and, once found, integrate it into our life . . . . 

If Horse has galloped into your cards today, you are being primed for a journey of great Power.

We all subconsciously know where our Personal Power lies, and as long as we instigate the search, we will ultimately find it – resulting in great rewards on all levels.

Remember: all journeys start with a simple step forward, with any forward movement nurturing growth, and growth leading to development, and enrichment.

Promoting a sense of complete freedom, the appearance of Horse suggests travel of all kinds, both inner and outward; emotional, physical, and spiritual.”

  1. Transition days… I have always had the feeling that the only thing I liked better than the season I was in was the season that was next. That has stood me well.

    Appreciating the season I’m in is definitely where I’m aiming.

  2. If fall would only skip over into Spring… I hate being cooped up inside for nearly 3 months. It has to be at least 26 degrees out for my minus 30 degree clothing to keep me warm for any length of time. It’s too bad there isn’t a body replacement program available. *sigh*

    I could use a powerful journey. Of course, I love horses in all their various forms.

    I love ’em, too.
