Daily Feng Shui Tip for June 8 – “Name Your Poison Day!”

Today’s ‘Name Your Poison Day’ has me thinking of holistic remedies that can be embraced if your poison is ivy or sumac or oak. At least one of these poisonous weeds grows in every U.S. state, and as many as 10 million Americans are affected by these plants annually. Contact with them can cause irritating blisters, itching and a discharge. Should that happen, immediately wash the affected area with cold water — you have about two minutes to rinse off the urushiol oil that carries the plant’s ‘poison.’ However, if you’re lacking water and you develop a rash, you can bring quick relief by dabbing the area with a mix of equal parts white vinegar and rubbing alcohol. You can also rub slices of fresh lemon on the affected area to stop the itch and heal the rash. Of course, gel from a fresh aloe plant offers the same healing relief. Be aware that these remedies are not applicable if the skin has been broken. In that event, proper medical intervention may be necessary. This way the next time someone asks you ‘what’s your poison,’ it won’t be ivy, sumac or oak!

Today’s Runes for June 8th is Ger

Today’s Runes

Gold Runes are most commonly used for questions about business, career, and property. Ger is one of the runes that touches on the cycles of the year, in this case the fall harvest. These cycles are eternal, which is represented in the rune by the fact that it is unchanged by reversal. Ger can represent pregnancy or other forms of fruitfulness, and is especially indicative of the cycles of providence and karma – that which has been sown is now being reaped. This rune can also represent the cycles of wealth, for crops were frequently a sign of wealth.

Today’s Tarot Card for June 8 is Triumph


This Tarot Deck: Lovers Path

General Meaning:

What has traditionally been known as the World card points to the presiding intelligence, called “Sophia,” or Wisdom, which upholds life on this and all worlds. A more precise title for this card might be “the Soul of the World,” also applicable as a symbol of personal empowerment and freedom. In most Tarot decks it is a female figure that has become our standard World image. She originates in Hebrew, Gnostic and Alchemical lore, and stands between heaven and earth as the Cosmic Mother of Souls, the Wife of God and our protector from the karmic forces we have set loose upon the Earth in our immaturity and ignorance.

Where the Empress energy secures and fertilizes our terrestrial lives, the goddess of The World invites us into cosmic citizenship — once we come to realize our soul’s potential for it. Just as the Chariot stands for success in achieving a separate Self, and Temperance represents achievement of mental and moral health, the World card announces the awakening of the soul’s Immortal Being, accomplished without the necessity of dying.

This card, like the Sun, is reputed to have no negative meaning no matter where or how it appears. If the Hermetic axiom is “Know Thyself”, this image represents what becomes known when the true nature of Self is followed to creative freedom and its ultimate realization

Daily Cosmic Calendar for June 8th

Last night’s Sun-Mars 90-degree contact is still reverberating in the ethers. Fighting with dear ones won’t lead to resolutions. Projecting anger on well-meaning associates won’t solve business conundrums. A dicey, 45-degree link from Mercury to Vesta (6:29AM PDT) adds another tone of intensity and abrasiveness to the psychic atmosphere – as well as being a reminder to be extra careful with your assets and investments.  However, the universe is seeking to wave a white flag of negotiation and neutrality as the Moon in Aquarius forms flowing trines with Venus in Gemini (7:50AM PDT) and the Sun in Gemini (3:36PM PDT). Love vibrations begin to increase in wavelength.  There are also revelations galore on the spiritual and psychic levels of awareness – thanks to a harmonious trine from Mercury to Neptune in water signs (6:50PM PDT). Experiment with a digital or video camera. Play improvisational music on a favorite instrument for a change of pace. Try your hand at rhymed poetry, limericks or haiku.  Strange forces are on the prowl as Friday night morphs into Saturday morning since Jupiter forms a contra-parallel with Pluto (11:21PM PDT). Being a fanatic or extremist in any fashion is following the wrong celestial instructions. Greed and arrogance bite the dust. On the other hand, delving into esoteric philosophy, psychology and mysticism can bring you rare insights. Resolve that you can remain optimistic and self-confident in a serene manner as the weekend begins in earnest.
