Elephant Journal: How July’s Mercury Retrograde will Help us Communicate our Desires

On June 26th, Mercury, the planet of communication, enters the bold sign of Leo.
This means we’ll have ample energy to speak our minds until July 7th. When Mercury goes into retrograde on July 7th, it will stay in Leo until July 19th. This will give us opportunities to work on healing the past or revisiting issues we haven’t laid to rest

This enchanting visual poem from Finland is a feast for the senses. It takes us on a magical forest tour as we experience the miracles of life there through time and seasons, through silence and nature’s songs, and through flights of imagination prompted by soaring birds. “The magic weaves through my mind, the more I search the less I find, the less I try, the more I heal.” Come, experience the magic, and carry the forest in you

Daily Tarot: The Hermit

Think twice before you speak or act and avoid any slip up or oversight that could make extra work for you tomorrow. Exercise more discretion, check the facts, and don’t automatically believe everything that you’re told. Be clear that you’re not suspecting the world of lying to you; you’re simply being prudent and cautious. It shows how much you care about getting things set right for everyone.

Inner Journey:

HONOUR YOURSELF

“I’d gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discovered that my capacities were real. It was like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat.”
— Joan Mills
Take a moment to stop and think about what you give to the people and life around you. Don’t think about what you’re not doing right. Look instead at all you do that is a blessing. Many of us continually beat ourselves up for not doing or being enough. But imagine for a moment that you are great just as you are. Feel the relief this brings! Now open to the possibility that this is not a daydream. It’s true! Believe it!
“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”
— Norman Vincent Peale

“We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”
— Orison Swett Marden

Progress

“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.”

-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809-1894)
To progress we must make the effort. We must forge ahead. We must put ourselves out there and be open to experiences that challenge us. We can start right where we are, by knowing where we want to go.

CoffeyTalk: Cupid and the Arrow

Cupid, Roman God of Love and perhaps the most famous of all Valentine symbols, has always played a role in the celebration of romance. As the son of Venus, he is often depicted as a mischievous, winged child whose arrows pierce the hearts of his victims, causing them to fall in love. Cupid is derived from the Latin word cupido, which means “desire.” His Greek counterpart is Eros (from whom comes the word “erotic”), young son of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty, and Ares, God of War. In Greek mythology, Eros has a brother named Anteros, sometimes represented as the Avenger of Slighted Love and sometimes depicted as the symbol of Reciprocal Affection.

According to legend, Cupid’s arrows come in two varieties: the Golden Arrow, which generally signifies true love, and the Leaden Arrow, which represents wanton and sensual passion. He is also known to sometimes carry a torch with which to inflame desire between men and women. Cupid is not always successful in his endeavors, however. Sometimes his arrows turn people away from those who fall in love with them. In some mythological tales, Venus was scratched by one of Cupid’s arrows while playing with her son, the result being that the Godddess fell instantly in love with Adonis…the first man she saw after receiving the wound.

The arrow is the symbol for direction, flight and penetration. When used as a weapon, it is a symbol of power for the person who carries it, along with the bow. As a sacred symbol, Artemis/Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt as well as Eros used their arrows to pierce people’s hearts with love. In this case, the arrow also serves as a phallic symbol or masculine power. On Valentine’s Day, we see the symbol of a heart pierced with an arrow, which is actually a covert symbol meaning sexual union. When used as a symbol of direction it can be used both physically and metaphorically. When we see an arrow shooting high in the sky, it is an emblem of the link between heaven and earth or a message being carried directly to the Gods.

The arrow is also an analogy for sureness and swiftness since the arrow can only travel in a straight line. The astrological sign of a Sagittarius has the hybrid creature always in the process of shooting an arrow from its bow. Sagittarius has a Latin root, sagitta, meaning “arrow” and derived from a verb sagire meaning “to perceive keenly or quickly.” Therefore, the symbolism behind the arrow is intuition and quick-wittedness.

Inner Journey:

LOVE LIFE AND YOURSELF

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
— Lao Tzu

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.

We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.

“It matters not Who you love, Where you love, Why you love, When you love, Or how you love, It matters only that you love.”
— John Lennon

“Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?”
— Frank Scully

Spirituality
“Although I try
to hold the single thought
of Buddha’s teaching in my heart,
I cannot help but hear
the many crickets’ voices calling as well.”
-Izumi Shikibu (c 1000)
Sometimes following our spiritual practices can be a challenge because we are so distracted by the demands of everyday life. This is true for everyone – there never seems to be enough time, or enough quiet, to set aside for prayer, meditation, or contemplation. It is so worth it when we do! And yet, spirituality does not have to be a separate experience from the rest of our lives. We can choose to hear the beautiful song of the crickets’ voices as a gift from God. We can choose to express gratitude for the full and exciting lives we lead, however busy we may be!

Endings: Cat’s Angel Message for December 22, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Endings: Cat’s Angel Message for December 22, 2018 

December’s Theme: Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life. Taking action will aid in manifestation.


Endings: sometimes a season of sorrow and grief. Endings: what must precede new beginnings. Life is an endless cycle of endings and beginnings. Renewal and rebirth cannot occur without endings – as the new year’s crop can only be planted and flourish in the decay of last year. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


1222:  Yesterday’s Winter Solstice was all about rebirth and a new beginning. These things require us to continue the positive thought process and turn over our sack of negative thought-seeds to the angels. Be sure to pay careful attention to the guidance and messages that you receive and stay true to your yourself and your goals as it is this powerful belief that helps you manifest your dreams and goals. Only you know what is best for you and your personal evolution. It is your faith and focus that help you most today. If you feel at loose ends take some time to ground, clear and center. The angels are here to support you and your efforts so if you need help just ask and set the wheels in motion.


Archangel Gabriel helps us to achieve positive results during times of personal transformation and change. She also helps us to see and access the windows of opportunity that are presented. The Ascended Master Vywamus works with us as we discover new things and inspirations to guides us on our path. And the Egyptian goddess Isis guides us during personal transformation. She helps us to find the patience we need with ourselves as we continue our path of learning and growth. She tells us “Always remember that you are a powerful creator in your own right. When you cloak yourself with dedication and determination you can move the heavens and the earth and create miracles.”


Our Sacred Stone is calm, soothing Tangerine Quartz. This stone helps us to balance our emotions by enhancing our connection to divine inspiration.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

It’s a Funny Thing: Cat’s Angel Message for October 22, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


It’s a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it. – W. Somerset Maugham


1022:  Today we will continue to work on our positive thought process. Success lies in staying true to your yourself and your goals as it is this powerful belief that helps you manifest miracles and opportunities. Only you know what is best for you and your personal evolution. Your faith, both in yourself and in the Universe will also play a huge roll. Remember to try and  let go of the doubts, worries or fears that pop up. This is not always easy but if done  a step at a time it’s more manageable. If you feel at loose ends make  time to ground, clear, center and just breathe. The Universe is always here to support you and your efforts, and by allowing them to assist you your manifestation increases ten fold!


Archangel Gabriel helps us to achieve positive results during times of transformation and change. She also helps us to see and access the windows of opportunity that are presented to us. The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter helps to release worry and anxiety. It clears our minds and energy centers and allows the good to get through. And the Roman Goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance in it’s many forms as well as attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to grateful for.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Tangerine Quartz. This calm and soothing stone helps to balance the emotions and enhances our connection to divine inspiration.

A Season of Transformation: Cat’s Angel Message for October 15, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

A Season of Transformation: Cat’s Angel Message for October 15, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward. – Ellen Glasgow


1015:  Fall is a transformative season that embodies change. As we travel our life path our beliefs and overall perceptions go through periods of change and growth. Spirit is letting us know that we are entering one of these periods now. These coming changes will benefit both ourselves and our loved ones and will have a powerful impact on what we do in the future. Yesterday’s self care day was the first step in helping us to prepare for the personal transformations that will be occurring. Our ability to be open to divine guidance as well as our optimistic attitude will benefit us during this period of emotional and spiritual growth. Creative thinking also comes into play and will take us down new avenues that we are now ready to explore. The key is to be confident in yourself and your intuitive skills because you are the only one who truly knows what’s best for you. Take the opinions of others with a grain of salt, if their words have merit consider them, but ultimately the choices are yours. Embrace this time of personal growth and get ready to expand your horizons!


The Mayan goddess Ixchel helps to get our creative juices flowing by breaking through the barriers we have erected that are blocking our progress. Call on her if you are starting something new. Archangel Gabriel, the angel of revelation, helps motivate us into taking action through new ideas, thoughts and activities. She help to bring messages from the Sacred Source that are relevant to our path and the Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us learn to embrace change without fear.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Garnet which opens our creative side and frees up our energy so we can experiment with new ideas.

Preferences: Cat’s Angel Message for September 29, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


Man prefers to believe what he prefers to be true. – Francis Bacon


929:  As we close in on the end of September we are being given a gentle reminder of this month theme: Life Purpose. We all have one and no matter how small it may seem each one is important and is much needed. Each person is capable of making a difference whether it’s one life or thousands Remember, the things that we do are important, both large and small. The good you send out returns to you full circle. Believe in yourself and in the Universe and make miracles happen. You are capable, worthy and have so much to offer!


Today’s number also refers to the completion of projects. If you have been working hard on a project, either personal or work related, now is the time to tie up any loose ends and finish in style. Your dedication and hard work is paying off and you can feel good about a job well done!


Archangel Gabriel helps us to access our inner wisdom and shows us how it can guide and inspire us. The Hindu goddess Devi enhances our ability to find more meaning in our life and how to bring it forward into our day to day world and the Ascended Master, Saint Germain helps with our life purpose and creative thinking and problem solving.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Azurite. This stone helps to shed light on illusion so that we can see our path more clearly.

Mind-Hands-Heart: Cat’s Angel Message for September 20, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


I come to life with an Open Mind, Clean Hands, and a Loving Heart. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


920:  One of the most important things we need when working with our Life Purpose is support. Last month we talked about how friends and family make up our support system. This support is necessary because it brings new ideas, blessings and people who can help us. Today we are being reminded that Spirit is part of our support system and that we should never hesitate to ask for what we need to support our “purpose”. Remember, when we ask for assistance we are effectively setting things in motion and even if we can’t see immediate results things are happening. Have faith that you have been heard and that help is on the way!


Archangel Gabriel can give us a needed push to help us get moving and Archangel Sandalphon takes our prayers and requests and delivers them to the angels and masters best suited to help and the Ascended spiritual teacher, Vywamus helps us on our path by providing inspiration and encouragement. The Hawaiian goddess Pele helps us with personal empowerment and the energy to make our goals happen. She tells us ” Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Unakite. This green and pink stone helps us to see blocks that we have erected within ourselves and then provides valuable insights on removing them so that we can move forward.
