Your I Ching Hexagram for January 12th is 22: Grace and Beauty

22: Grace and Beauty

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

A splashy sunset bathes the mountains in a soft radiance; the light of a full moon dances on the surface of a rippling river. Grace and beauty adorn the natural world. Grace is not an all-powerful force, nor is it the essential or fundamental thing. By itself, it is form without content. Grace is moonlight on water, not the sunlight at noon. Yet grace brings artistic expression into the world, and enhances the quality of our lives.

In the arts, grace arises out of adherence to form: the dancer becoming the form of the dance, the musician giving life to the form of a musical score, the painter becoming one with the brush and canvas. In human affairs, grace is also aligned with form — with mastery of aesthetic and cultural patterns honed by time and honored by tradition. Through appreciation of graceful customs in human relationships we apprehend the pure beauty of the ideal, of life raised above the mere struggle for survival.

Possession of grace, like the bearing of a beautiful gift to a wedding, can add stature to those in humble positions. Take care to lend grace and dignity even to small happenings, while giving the weight of deep and careful consideration to matters of greater consequence. Though it should not be confused with true substance, an artistic flair can take one far in this world.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for December 9th is Lovers

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

trumpsLovers

The Lovers

The Lovers indicates both the most powerful of unions and the most of challenging conflicts humans must face. On one side The Lover’s embodies love and union on a cosmic scale—a love so strong, so inherently good that it actually makes the lovers better, more than they really are. All of the elements are there for the perfect union. The Lovers represent all powerful unions in general, and the elements that create/sustain them. The problem The Lovers face is temptation and the decision to act morally or abandon their ethics to take advantage of other opportunities that would be defined as transgressions.

You


Witchy Comments & Graphics

You

by the Whyte Bard

You are a child of the goddess, a daughter or a son of the god, and you are here in joy. Live your life to its fullest, taking the good with the bad and learning from each.

Enjoy love, giving yourself to your lover as you will, but not so much that you lose your Self, and take that which is given by your lover, but not so much as to empty them of Selfhood.

You are both individuals who are walking together, side by side, in equal partnership, and if your paths should seperate, then so be it. Seperate in joy, not hate.

Love. Love life, love your fellow humans, and love our Brothers and Sisters in fur, feather and scale. Love your Mother Earth. We are caretakers of this planet; this is our Home.

Work. Do not live from the bounty of others, but live of your own, as an independent member of the whole. If you must take charity, take it in good grace, and return what you have been loaned therefrom when you can, be it in kind, or by whatever means you have.

Give. Give to those in need, and to those that hunger or thirst. Give not to inflate yourself, and to show others your magniminity, but give from a love for your fellow humans. Give of your substance, but more importantly, give a helping hand, that the person helped may support themselves, free from obligation.

Teach. Teach your children and teach others, not by words, for words can twist and lie, but by your own example. Teach kindness, and Understanding, and Joy, but most of all, teach Love. If you must discipline your children, discipline in love, not anger.

Think. Think before you speak. Think before you act. Consider your words and actions, and the effect they will have on others.

Learn. Learn from all, for even a fool may speak wisdom unknowingly. Most of all, learn thru the wide eyes of a child, seeing for the first time.

Ask. If you do not know, ask. If you are unsure, ask. If you are sure …ask again.

Speak the Truth. Live the Truth. Love the Truth. Seek after the Truth.

Harm none. Love all. For it is written, and it is undoubtly so, that what you have done to the least and smallest, you have done to the deity.

Yahoo! It’s The Weekend Finally! Wishing All My Dear Friends A Very Happy Saturday!

Goooood Saturday Morning, dearies! How are you doing this morning? Me? Much, much better! I feel like a bird that has been sprung from a cage. I know the people around me have great intentions. But damn, I was getting to feel smothered. Don’t do this, don’t do that, sit down, you can’t walk that far. I was getting ready to ask permission to go to the bathroom, lol!

Yesterday, I told them I was extremely grateful for everything they had done for me. But it was time, we all get back to normal. I know when I overdo and I will stop and sit down. Please leave me alone and let me get back up on my feet. I thought there for a moment they were going to spoon feed me, gee! When I get back to 100% I plan on throwing them a thank you party. I figure it is the least I can do. They all have been super and you couldn’t ask for a better bunch of friends.

I also have to thank you for having patience with us. It seems like everything has gotten screwed up and you hung in there with us. You are a super bunch of friends also. Anyone else would have said, “the heck with them. I’m going some place else.” But you didn’t. You had faith in us. Thank you for that. I know I have said it a thousand times but I feel I owe the entire world a great big hug and kiss. So here goes………..

Good Morning, my dear, dear, friends! I believe the above quote says it all, “Thank you for your love, patience and support.”

I will keep this short. We (WordPress and I) have been getting the problem fixed on the blog. I am hoping it is fixed and everything will work the way it is suppose to. If not, we might be forced to change templates. I hope this is not the case, because I haven’t gotten use to this one yet, lol!

Anyway, have a super fantastic Tuesday, sweeties!

And to mine and ours.

And if mine and ours

Ever come across to you and yours,

Good Lazy, Hazy Sunday Morning To All My Wonderful Friends!

Days of the Week Comments=

Good Sunday morning all! I must apologize for running late. I have been working on the blog. I am trying to get everything caught up and added the way it is suppose to be. I am going to get some information on the two blank page on the main screen today (one way or the other, lol!). Even if I have to hog tie a little bobcat! Razzy has been up playing like a wild kid. I am hoping I have wore her out and she will sleep for a couple of hours. She tickles me. The first thing she does in the morning is take her big paws and wrap them around my leg. This way she had ahold of me and I am not going anywhere. It is her way of telling me, “time to play, momma!” And she doesn’t play for a few minutes then quit. No, no, she plays for hours. Right now, we are down to about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I am hoping as she gets older, she will want to nap more. I hope!

Well how did you like yesterday’s blessing? Like I said it is one of my favorite ones. It is a little bit dirty but at least you can tell who doesn’t like you, lol! Here is another blessing I would like to leave you with today…..

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been,

The foresight to know where you are going,

And the insight to know when you have gone too far”  

Have a very blessed and relaxing Sunday, my friends!

The Daily Motivator 

Magickal Spell of the Day for July 10 – Dragon Spell for A New Start Under Difficult Circumstances

 

A Dragon Spell for a New Start Under Difficult Circumstances

Dragon living in caves beneath the Earth and guarding treasures, are an ancient symbol of Earth energies. European dragons are primarily guardians of gold while in the East they watch over gems and pearls. Pearls are said to bring courage and wisdom to humans who find them, scattered after rain. Whether your new beginning excites or scares you, the dragon is an excellent symbol of courage.

Items You Will Need:

Materials to make or draw a two- or three-dimensional dragon (for example, clay, wood, newspaper and glue, thin copper wire, different papers, paints, a computer drawing program); a small dish of dried tarragon

Best Time To Cast:

Two or three days before the new ventures is to begin

The Spell:

  1. Create your power dragon, giving it huge wings so that you can soar high in the clouds to launch your new venture.
  2. Set out your dragon and place next to it the dish of tarragon (herb of dragon courage). Say:  “I have the power, I have the courage, I have the Dragon gold. How can I fail?”
  3. Keep your dragon somewhere where you can see it, repeating the chant last thing at night and first thing in the morning in the days before your launch. If possible, add tarragon to meals.
  4. Buy a tiny ceramic or silver dragon to carry with you for your new beginning.

Daily OM for July 9 – Returning To Creative Dreams

Returning to Creative Dreams

Return and Reclaim

by Madisyn Taylor

 

Take the time to reclaim your creativity and watch your life blossom as a result.

 

As children, many of us entertained fantasies or even goals of being an actor, singer, dancer, artist, or musician. In some cases, we received enough encouragement to develop our abilities in those creative arenas, but somewhere along the way we stopped. This stopping may have been due to circumstances beyond our control or to our own unconscious acts of self-sabotage. Being creative can be scary in a world that seems to value logic over imagination and practicality over dreaming. We can forgive ourselves for shutting down or turning our attention away from our inner artist, but perhaps we can also take steps to reclaim our dreams.

In certain times and places, developing a creative ability was considered an important part of being a well-rounded human being. It was not necessary to be a professional or a masterly genius, because the act of creativity was valued in and of itself. It gifts are manifold—from the sheer pleasure of allowing our imaginations free reign to sharing and enjoying the fruits of our labor. Children share drawings and songs freely, without self-consciousness, and there is no reason why we cannot do the same thing. You may already be remembering some lost form of expression, such as making jewelry or writing songs. Your soul may be responding with an energetic lift as it feels its way back to a time when it was allowed to express itself freely. Your brain, on the other hand, may be throwing up obstacles, like the idea that you are too old or do not have the time.

The truth is, you are not too old, and if you have time to pick up a pen, you have time to make a doodle or write a haiku. Recognize that the obstacles you find before you have arisen from a place of fear and that they will wane in power every time you do something creative. Each creative act takes you deeper into a realm of beauty and magic, a realm that you have every right to return to and reclaim.
