From the Universal Waite Tarot Deck, The Magician appeared as this week’s card.

The card depicts a magician holding a wand up with one hand, and his other hand is pointing down. On the table in front of him are tools that he uses. There are lush flowers above him and on the ground below him. The Magician is someone who can manifest power; he can channel energy and bring things into reality. He is confident in his abilities, and uses them wisely.

New experiences may present themselves to you this week. It could be in the form of something new happening, or that you are given an opportunity that you may need or want to take action on. The Magician indicates that you have the potential to control your environment. You have the knowledge and the tools. This knowledge can empower you and allow you to realize that you have the power within you and the resources around you to manifest the reality you desire.

Card of the Week: Strength

Strength card from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck.

This week, I drew the card of the week from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck. I pulled Strength.

This card depicts a woman with a lion; she seems to have control over the lion in a confident, yet loving way. This card could symbolize the strength you have in your potential, and the confidence you have. It’s there even if you don’t see it right now.

This week, realize that you have the ability to deal with whatever life may bring. Any challenges that you face you most likely will conquer with your gentle, yet firm, strength.

Think about the challenges you have overcome in your life, and use this to inspire and give you confidence. You may find that strength within you that is based on the wisdom and knowledge you have gained through your experiences, and the belief you have for yourself.

Learn to trust your own abilities. This could lead to self-empowerment. It could permeate your Spirit, and have a strong affect on how you view things in your life.

Card of the Week: The Sun / Lemur

The Sun / Lemur card from Animal Totem Tarot.

Happy New Year everyone! For the first week in 2022, I drew a card from Animal Totem Tarot. The card I pulled was The Sun / Lemur.

This card depicts a ring-tailed lemur joyfully basking in the sun. He is sitting in a meditation position with his palms up and face towards the sun. The ring-tailed lemur is the only lemur species that is not nocturnal. They need the sun to survive. Without the heat from the sun their bodies would grow cold and they would die. So they bask in the light of the sun each and every day.

The sun gives life, and sheds light in the darkness. The sun can illuminate the path to enlightenment and happiness. This week welcome the light, and see what has been hidden in the darkness so it can be confronted and managed. Do something which energizes, heals, enhances your life and health. Share your light with others, your optimism can be infectious.

When I lived in Michigan, this time of year was the darkest and coldest. The sun’s light was minimal, and I missed it so much. For those of you living far north, try to enjoy as much of the sun as you can. Do not miss the opportunity to take walks in the middle of the day when the sun is out so you can bask in the sun’s energy. And take heart in knowing the days are getting longer now, the sun will be back in it’s full glory soon.

Message from Lemur:

“Are you ready to stand in the full light of your magnificence? Does the light bother you or draw you to it? The light is interesting, as not all can reside under it. I am the only one of my kind that actually ventures out into the light. The rest of my cousins prefer the shadows and the cloaking magic of the dark. But for me, the energy of the Sun not only warms my body so I can live, but it energizes my soul. Because of this, you will find me honoring its presence in my life each and every day, as it is important to honor that which gives us life.”
