To Flow or Struggle: Cat’s Angel Message for July 16, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


One can flow harmoniously with the River – or one can struggle fearfully against the River – and the River just flows. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


716:  It is through our collaboration with the Universe that we learn to trust in ourselves and in our own intuition. These things help to navigate our path and strengthen our powers of manifestation. Today we are being reminded that we are capable of making good things happen for ourselves as well as directing our own personal journey. It simply requires some effort on our part to help make things happen. Today the Angels are asking us to surround ourselves with love. Don’t struggle or try to force things to happen too quickly. Our ability to go with the flow helps us to let go of our fears and limiting beliefs. Which in turn allows abundance to freely enter your life. Simply know in your heart that you are manifesting what you need even if you can’t see it quite yet. Good things are happening so keep your chin up!


Archangel Raziel can assist us in both embracing our unique divine magic and in the overall manifestation process. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want. The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. This is an important lesson on our path, if it makes your heart sing then it’s the right direction. And Aine, the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  •  Green Quartz which helps attract abundance in all forms and increases our powers of perception so that we can see the “Tiny Miracles” more clearly.
  • Turquoise helps us with creative problem solving and promotes both balance and intuition. It is aligned with the Throat Chakra and teaches us to speak up for ourselves and to speak our truth, which can be a valuable asset when working with gratitude and our ability to create. Turquoise helps to purify our energy and clears away negative energy. it aids our problem solving skills and protects us against self self sabotaging thoughts and actions.
  • Okenite which can be used to help clear away obstacles and teaches us that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start and helps replace bad habits with good ones.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MNN: 14 things you didn’t know about goats

Baby goats are as cute as puppies. When you see one, you just want to pick it up and cuddle it and take it home. In fact, researchers found that goats are more like dogs than we thought. They’ll look people in the eye when they’re frustrated with a task and could use a little help, according to a study published in Biology Letters.

EarthSky News: Moon goes by Saturn night of July 15

On July 15, 2019, the almost-full waxing gibbous moon and the planet Saturn pair up together on the sky’s dome, staying out nearly all night long. Saturn just passed its yearly opposition on July 9. It’s now at its brightest and best for all of 2019. Although the July 15 moon will probably appear full to the eye, it isn’t truly full until the night of July 16

Patheos-Pagan: The Power Of The Witches’ Mind: Self-Deception, The Imagined Other, And Sympathetic Magick

Through our powerful witches’ minds, we create magick both in the form of an actual poppet or of the entirely energetic variety when we create mighty illusions of ourselves and others. Like sympathetic witchcraft, our thoughts create beings of ourselves and others that may have little to do with truth. Whether the poppet is a physical creation or entirely an energetic thought-form, sticking needles and otherwise giving attention to false poppets leads to trouble.

Inner Journey:

ON SADNESS

“Our sadness is an energy we discharge in order to heal. …Sadness is painful. We try to avoid it. Actually discharging sadness releases the energy involved in our emotional pain. To hold it in is to freeze the pain within us. The therapeutic slogan is that grieving is the ‘healing feeling.'”
— John Bradshaw

“To weep is to make less the depth of grief.”
— William Shakespeare

“There is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and recovered hope.”
— George Eliot

“Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.”
— Lao-tzu

“When the heart grieves over what it has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.”
— Sufi epigram

Sharing

“For we must share, if we would keep,
that blessing from above;
Ceasing to give, we cease to have;
such is the law of love.”
-Richard C. Trench

By sharing we recognize the abundance of whatever it is we have and are content to allow others to participate in our good fortune. There’s another saying that “love isn’t love until you give it away.” Blessings, like love, are meant to be shared. And whatever we share we seem to have more of!

The Voice Within: Cat’s Angel Message for July 15, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Do not follow the ideas of others, but learn to listen to the voice within yourself. Your body and mind will become clear and you will realize the unity of all things. – Dogen


715:  Last month was about initiating change in our lives and we did that through clearing space and making room for new things. Today the Universe is sending us a gentle reminder that what we put in motion is beginning to manifest. Can’t see the results just yet? Hang on…. they’re coming! Persistence and patience are the keys to working with changes of all kinds. This is now a good time to review what you’ve done so far and make any necessary adjustments and tie up any  loose ends. Should you have had a setback remember that these are only temporary. Look for the lesson and the truth in the situation then use this information to make the adjustments and move forward. Don’t let the little things hold you back. You’ve totally got this!


Archangel Uriel can help us to overcome obstacles by showing us where the solutions are that will lead to our success. He provides us with the additional information that we need to make the most informed decisions we can. No problem is too great or too small for him to assist with. Uriel also helps us to gain spiritual understanding and creative insight. Today is a good day to simply touch base with him, ask for help if needed or simply express gratitude for the blessing in your life.  The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control  so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that  keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen. And, the Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She tells us, ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey. Remember child, that change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self defeating thinking. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential.
  • Cerussite to keep us grounded, and stimulate new growth while teaching us to be flexible and how to adapt to the changes we have made.
  • Happy, sunny Citrine  draws abundance and brings our self confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action. We can also use this crystal to help us sift through information and analyze situations so that we can move forward with positive intent. Citrine also helps us go with the flow and encourages us to explore all options so that we can make the best decisions for our journey.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

JulyFullMoon_zpse457a5d3[2]

July 16, 2019 Full Buck Moon

Time:  2:38 pm PST / 3:38 pm MST/  5:38 pm EST


The Farmer’s Almanac calls this moon the Buck Moon as this is the time when bucks grow their new antlers.

The Buck Moon is a good time for divination, dream-work and prosperity magick. The laid back energy of this moon also works well for meditation, so kick back and enjoy the feeling of the things you have accomplished this far. Add a little something extra to your magickal workings by using July’s herbs hyssop, lemon balm, mugwort, catnip or leaves from ash or oak trees. During this time we begin to harvest the first of the seasons fruits and veggies. These bountiful gifts from the Earth Mother is where the Pagan name of The Blessing moon comes from.


You can also celebrate this months moon by wearing the colors blue-gray, silver or green and adorning yourself with moonstone, pearls, opals or a simple white agate. Full Moon Blessings! Cat

Thought For The Day: July 15, 2019 “What Can I Do”

Happy Monday,

Today’s quote refers to the old saying ” Actions speak louder than words.” Apologies are a dime a dozen and are often used casually, tossed out into a conversation or situation simply because it’s expected. The truth is that “sorry” has become a band aid word for for our busy world. Before saying “sorry” take a moment and ask yourself “Am I saying sorry just to say it, or is there something I can change that will truly make a difference or make things right?”

Look For The Good: Cat’s Angel Message for July 14, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


I unconditionally forgive myself for everything that I have ever done, said, or thought that has caused me harm or suffering. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


714:  The power of positive thought comes up quite frequently in our daily messages. The Universe knows that it’s hard for us to be positive all the time. There are days that…….. well there are just THOSE days. We all have them and that’s normal. The key lies in our ability to acknowledge our negative feelings and then move past them. Remember that you can turn a negative statement into a positive one by substituting words. By eliminating the words “IF” ( that’s never going to happen) and “BUT” (I lack faith and self confidence) from your thought vocabulary you can change the intent. Replace “If” with WHEN (I know it will happen) and “But” with HOWEVER (I have faith and patience). This will give momentum to your manifestation process. Our Divine helpers are telling us that by making these small changes we will become more empowered with strength and confidence.


Archangel Michael teaches us how to be more self confident as he helps us work through issues of self doubt and worthiness. He also promotes the courage and confidence we need to get our ducks in row and moving in the right direction. The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara helps us to find our wings so that we can rise above negative emotions and thought patterns and the Greek Goddess Iris, Lady of Rainbows, sheds the prism of hope on stormy emotions. She brings feelings of clam and an all will be well energy. Iris tells us ” While there is beauty and clarity found in turbulence remember not to let these storms become a destructive flood. Look for the light and use it to ascend to a higher level of thought.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Gentle Rhodonite helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations. It also helps to promote the feeling of brotherhood. It also helps to clear and activate the heart chakra which is essential to embracing gratitude while promoting a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude and creativity.

Green Tourmaline (aka Verdelite) promotes joy of life, creativity, prosperity and abundance. it is also a healing stone that transforms negative energy into positive.

Softly colored Lepidolite helps us by filtering away distractions and obsessive thinking. It soothes and heals stress and reminds us to just breathe


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
