Altered Alignments

             Remember when we talked about how the only constant is Change, and how we need to learn about flexibility where Change is concerned?  Well, we’re back there now.

             Or rather, we’ve spiraled up to a new level of it.

             As we all know, the world is a fucking shit show.  So much is wrong.  So.  Much!

             On the other hand, some great progress is being made, and some wonderful new opportunities are arriving.  Always, there is Hope.

             Astrologically speaking, these big steps forward have been approaching for a while now, they are not a secret.  We’re sitting in the middle of a very large growth phase, a huge upset.  Globally, we are moving towards tremendous improvement.

             One of the reasons I’m so confident that things will get better is because, for me personally, there’s been some excellent progress.  Every time I allow the Universe to lead, I am directed in a completely positive way.

             Here is what we can focus on, what will help, and what will get us past the growing pains, on our way to Improvement:

Ever Advancing

             We are never going backwards.  We do not make mistakes.  We learn.  We advance.  We just do better!  (Yes, there are set-backs, we’re dealing with flawed humans.)

             The trick is to let go.  Then, re-aim at something even more than where we are now.  Fix a few key points, deal-breakers and must-haves, then . . . . .  release.

             It’s simple, but can be difficult.  The challenge we face is that our human brain can often fight against the spiritual side.  Be strong.  Then, allow the greatness to catch up.

             This was who called out to me for our validation.  It’s a wonderful number, too.  Ten is a new cycle.  And as we heard, spiraling ever upwards.

“The Arrow Master  ~  10

hitting the mark, intention, detachment

The Arrow Master appears to help you target your intentions and teaches you how to shoot straight for the stars.

The message is to be deliberate about focusing your dreams and desires with intention and about aligning your intentions with Spirit.

Then let them fly on the wind, directed by the Divine, until they reach their goal.

The only way to hit the target is to allow the arrow of your intention to fly unencumbered by your eagerness to see it travel exactly the way you want it to go.

You may think it needs to veer a certain way to reach your goal, but in the invisible realms, human power cannot make this happen.

The Divine has its own idea of how the arrow flies and upon what wind it’s carried.  Nonetheless, if you don’t shoot, you’ll never score.

This is a fortunate message as long as you remember the Law of Detachment.  If you do, then be assured that you are right on point!”

 is to say that I am in the middle of a job move.   I set my intentions earlier, and the results have come in.  (Swiftly!)  More details soon; as this week progresses I’ll be working at the old place, while simultaneously training with the new.

             It will be very tiring, but I am feeling energized at taking this step.  Onward and upward!  (Also Outward, and down 5 blocks.)

Enfoldment

             Here we are, with a (temporary) new look.  And just like our daily adventuring through this life, it’s been full of ups and downs.  I know, Mercury is still not right, and other planets aren’t either.  But it had to be now.  No, I don’t know why.  It just did.

            Whether we’re updating websites, walking our path, or simply trying to get from morning until the night, we come across challenges.  It happens.  There’s no stopping it.

             That’s what we need to realize today.  That’s what we need to hang on to.

Embrace (the) All

             When we accept the good with the bad (everything is good and bad, FYI) we accept ourselves.  We take in the lessons that will move us forward.  Not all will be pleasant.  But they all have one thing in common: none of them last forever.

             Nothing does.  Except the energy of us all.  The All.  We are individuals and we are the same.  When we accept that, when we treat each other/ourselves with gentle hands and hearts, then, well then, we’ve really made a difference.

             Returning to our regular rotation around the card altar this morning, this messenger brings a terrific validation.  We are doing our best.  And that’s what is most important.

Today’s Personal/Business Note:

is to say that no, the new site is not all done.  In fact, it’s barely begun.  However, this is as far as I was able to get on my own tonight.  (And yes, I know there’s two HOME page tabs.  Workin’ on it!)

               (Special thanks to Dan, who helps me, even if he isn’t sure what I need or what needs doing.  And he does it while making dinner and watching football.)

Saturn-day Send Off.

            We are now done with our days of the week name game.  For those of you who did not sleep through or skip out of take French in high school, they were: Lundi, Mardi, Mecredi, Jeudi, Vendredi, and today is Samedi.  Tomorrow is Dimanche, but we aren’t going to continue.  I have no clue what I am going to write about for the Equinox (I wait for the ideas to just appear), but we will be drawing from our Special Occasion deck.  That much I do know.

          Today is also special though, we need to wish Whitney a very Happy Happy.  One of my children from other mothers, Whit has been with us since she and Empress went to school together.  Hope your day was festive, full of family, and overflowing with love!

           Update on my traveling boys now… Daniel has been sending me phone photos since last night.  You saw how they had arrived.  Well this is where they are staying.   

         Today they went to OMSI and got to see some very cool things.

            (Which I  REALLY hope they explain, in detail, when they get home.  Because this picture certainly must have a story behind it.)

             I haven’t been keeping up with my foreign license plate log lately, partly because I’ve had so many other things to share, and partly due to the fact that I’ve only seen a few in the past couple of days.  Here’s the list:  Missouri, Texas (times about 2 or 5 or something), Wisconsin, Virginia, and New York. 

            Our card today is from Colette’s Wisdom of the Hidden Realm oracle deck.  These illustrations are just so rich and lovely.  But this time the message was something I wanted to look at further, for a couple of reasons.

“The Arrow Master  ~  hitting the mark, intention, detachment  ~  number 10.

The Arrow Master appears to help you target your intentions and teaches you how to shoot straight for the stars.  The message is to be deliberate about focusing your dreams and desires with intention and about aligning your intention with Spirit.  Then let them fly on the wind, directed by the Divine, until they reach their goal.

The only way to hit the target is to allow the arrow of your intention to fly unencumbered by your eagerness to see it travel exactly the way you want it to go.  You may think it needs to veer a certain way to reach your goal, but in the invisible realms, human power cannot make this happen.  The Divine has its own idea of how the arrow flies, and upon which wind it is carried.  Nonetheless, if you don’t shoot, you will never score.

This is a fortunate message as long as you remember the Law of Detachment.  If you do, then be assured that you are right on point.”

             The first part of this that I want to address is the number.  We aren’t following any of the cards in their numerical or assigned progression, but even when I don’t mention the numbers, they always have a significance.  I love the number ten (not as much as the number 5, but still…).  It tells us that we are transitioning.  We are rising to a new level.  Ten is encouraging every time it comes up.  It’s like a stamp of validation, we are doing the work and now we can begin to see the results.       

           What was so way cool to me when I read this definition just a moment ago, was that I had just been having a conversation with a friend about a very similar subject last night.  We all have our lessons to learn and paths to follow.  But we also have our Free Will.  To ask for assistance, send out our focused intentions, or pray for guidance, is up to us.

            We can help our charts play out more smoothly the more we pay attention to the Universe and the messages we are receiving.  The more we work with our Team of guides, angels, and loved ones on the Other Side, the easier our lessons will be to learn, and the more sure-footed we will become as we walk our paths.  To point our arrows, as Colette describes them, and better hit our marks, we need to stay aware of what we are aiming towards and be able to trust that they will hit their marks.

            Another witch once told me, “don’t over-work the spell.”  By that she was saying we should send our intentions out there, and fully release them.  The Christian saying of, “let go and let God,”  and the Universal Law of Detachment* are all saying the same thing.  Set your focus on what it is that you need and desire, what you want the end result to be (remember to make it specific), then let it fly. 

            I’ve been doing this recently about a few things.  I believe it is starting to work too.  I continue with my affirmations of safety, approval, and release.  But I have asked for what I need now, it’s out there, I’ve let it go.  I am letting the Magick take care of itself. 

*The Law of Detachment says “in order to acquire anything in the physical Universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it.”

This does not mean that you have to create by default or that you should not desire or intend for what you want to create. Remember, “coincidence” does not exist. We need to work with the Law of Attraction to create what we desire. The Universe, and its laws, work in harmony, to provide us with everything we need.

It is all about trust. When we are in a state of detachment, we trust. To be detached from the outcome of a result means that you have learned to trust.
