Life Begins Outside Your Comfort Zone

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. ~ Neale Donald Walsch When the 2 of Pentacles shows up you may have been forced by circumstances to move outside your comfort zone… OR you could be contemplating some big change that will make you have to shift outside that zone. Either way, now is a GREAT time to embrace change and to stretch beyond what you usually imagine yourself capable of… Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. ~ Brian Tracy Think of yourself as a fledgling just learning to fly. It will be awkward at first… but you were made to soar! If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness. ~ Les Brown And the great thing is, once your wings have been tried and you know you were born for flying, you can’t go back to your previous small way of thinking and moving in the world. You are now – and forever – one of the movers and shakers. You are shining your light and the world thanks you. Affirmation: “I am prepared to take risks in order to achieve my goals.” 2 of Pentacles Prayer Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), thank you for helping me juggle my responsibilities in a way that leads to greater long-term stability. Help me to truly prosper financially. So mote it be!

Sweet Victory

“There was a saying that a man’s true character was revealed in defeat. I thought it was also revealed in victory.”
~ Alison Goodman

Things are going your way because you took a stance and acted with courage. Bravo! You taste the victory… Is it as sweet as you imagined? The truth is that victory which only serves to glorify the ego will leave a bitter after-taste.

The Earth Sign Queen

“I am of certain convinced that the greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel.” ~ Florence Nightingale The Queens nurture and the Queen of Pentacles nurtures in practical ways – the ways that often seen as the most meaningful to the one at the receiving end. Nobody who is hungry will turn down a bowl of hot soup. The child with the scraped knee won’t mind the soothing attention of its mother and the lover in need of a hug will gratefully allow their beloved to embrace them.  The Queen of Pentacles (or Disks/Coins) nurtures with her hands and the material goods at her disposal. She genuinely cares if your body is tired and knows to not take your words too seriously if you are weary. To her, everything is viewed in context of practical reality and she can be quite dismissive of things she perceives as impractical and therefore useless. Many come to revere this personality type as the ‘earth mother.’ Because she pays attention to the world around her in a way that few people do these days (we’re raising a generation of screen addicts!), it may frustrate her when others don’t and this may turn her into a bit of a nag. She often gives more than she receives and really appreciates material gifts from others on the occasion that she is at the receiving end. The gift this Queen brings us is an awareness of how we can use the material realm to bless and nurture the people in our lives. She may need to be encouraged to look after herself better, as she has a natural selfless tendency to always honour the needs of others before her own. “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” ~ Charles Dickens Affirmation: “I care for myself first, so that I may care for others.” Queen of Pentacles Prayer Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), thank you for material comfort and all of life’s luxuries. Help me find practical and sustainable ways of caring for self and others. So mote it be!

Are You Letting Your Past Dictate Your Future?

Are You Letting Your Past Dictate Your Future?

“What day is it?” It’s today,” squeaked Piglet. My favorite day,” said Pooh.” ~ A.A. Milne The 4 of Cups shows us that we have fallen for the temptation to shut down because of negative past experiences. This is natural and the ego’s way of protecting itself against more of the same. However, shutting down is not the answer: the answer is to learn the lesson and move on with renewed faith and optimism. “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ~ Winston S. Churchill With the corresponding Moon in Cancer comes a strong sentimental streak and a propensity to become tearful. This is not always a bad thing but it does get bad when it keeps us stuck in the past. Sometimes when we have experienced emotional trauma, we resist learning from it and regress even further back into our past… to a time when we had no responsibility resting on our shoulders. This puts us in a state of avoidance in the face of important future choices and could easily see us miss important opportunities. The trick is to practise mindfulness like Piglet and Pooh in the first quote above. Today is called the ‘present’ for a reason, cliché as it sounds. Are you ready to let go of the past? Are you ready to raise your gaze…? It is your ego that looks to the past to inform the future; Your Higher Self is always centred in the NOW and poised to leap. “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” ~ Oscar Wilde Affirmation: “I do not let my past dictate my future.” 4 of Cups Prayer Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), thank you that golden opportunities keep being passed to me in spite of my subjective and sometimes negative view of reality. Help my heart stay open to those opportunities today. So mote it be!
