Waxing Moon: Waxing moon is where the moon is growing in the sky. Each night for two full weeks she grows in light, getting bigger and bigger in the sky until she reaches full moon. During the two weeks that the moon is waxing, it’s the best time for trying to draw things to you, encourage growth, or to “magnify” certain things in your life. Want your nails to grow longer? File them while the moon is waxing. Want your hair to grow faster? Trim it during waxing moon. Want to increase your finances? Focus your energies on improving finances during waxing moon. Waxing moon is the best time for starting new things, seeking new employment, or establishing “gain” in any area of your life. (but remember, the zodiac position of the moon is also influencial, so reference where the moon is in the zodiac prior to working any magick).

When the moon is waxing, we feel more positive, more energized, more outgoing.

Moon in Capricorn: *Develops strong structure. Focus on traditions, responsibilities, and obligations. A good time to set boundaries and rules.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Don’t brag about how healthy you are becoming — everyone makes different choices.

Overview
You’re excited about something big that seems like it could change your life, but you may need to keep it to yourself for the time being. Things are still complicated for your people and they need to approach you.

Daily Extended
The work you’ve been putting in at the gym is starting to pay off, but not everyone has been following your progress as closely as you think — don’t get upset if no one has noticed you lost a pound or gained some muscles. And whatever you do, don’t brag about how healthy you are becoming — especially right in front of a friend of yours who’s about to lunge into an ice cream sundae! You have to be sensitive to the fact that not everyone will make the same kinds of choices that you have.

Daily Flirt:
You’re all excited over something new, but you need to let other folks have their say too! It’s sadly easy to get wrapped up in your own business so much that everyone else decides to ignore you!

Daily Couples:
Your honey has something on their mind. Let them give you all the details before you offer any advice. Just saying it out loud may help them figure out what they need to do.

Daily Singles:
A strong sense of what you want comes in handy when pursuing a new lover. Nothing holds up romance faster than a wishy-washy partner. Make sure you tell this new person exactly what you want and when. Confidence is sexy.

Career & Finance
Some may look at you and mutter, have you no self respect? But others look at you and see someone working with unbridled enthusiasm. You know which is your boss and which is the competition.

Peace of Mind

Peace of Mind

Ya think?
Card Meaning: Make peacefulness your highest priority. Commit to taking steps to ensure peace of mind, and take those steps without delay.
Description: Peace of mind isn’t something you have to earn or acquire, since your true self is already peaceful. Instead, it requires being like a sculptor with a block of marble, who works with this material until the inner masterpiece is revealed. If you’ll make peace of mind your main focus, you’ll inevitably feel a great sense of relief.
Steps that create peace of mind include being honest with yourself, living according to your inner guidance, being helpful and kind to others, practicing meditation or yoga, eating only healthful foods, avoiding toxins, maintaining healthy sleep habits, avoiding negative people and media, surrendering your problems to God, communing with nature, simplifying your life, and saying no when you need to.
Affirmation: My mind is now peaceful, and I know that all of my needs are automatically taken care of. I can rest easily, assured that all is well.

Ha!

No really.  HA! HA! Hee! Hee!

What was my first line in the Tarot post? That I had to laugh at the truth of the situation.  What did I write about last night as what helped me through my own misery? T bringing me to hysterical laughter… a giggle fit that felt wonderful.  Indeed.

Laugh it off, girl. Laugh it off.

Someone I once thought I knew used to say, “If this situation wasn’t so tragic, it’d be funny!” – And that’s the reality of these two cards being drawn together.  It’s the epitomy of that phrase! Ha! Ha! Ha!

I’ve drawn her a few times, actually. Today, July 21, and June 11. I like the June 11th post because it tells the story of my first encounter with seeing a faerie… much in the same way I “heard” my faerie this morning. Here’s what I’d written:

“Laughter”

Laughter

This is the first fairy I ever “saw”. I’d had this deck for a short while and was living in Tulsa, Oklahoma. That’s where I really had the opportunity to get to know myself in new ways. I’d built what I called a Moon Circle in the back yard. It was a meditation spot I’d created using cut firewood that had been left there by the previous tenant, stones, and a tree stump in the center for sitting. I’d empowered the circle with my own concoction of salt, oils, potpourri, etc. and lined the circle with it. Well, one morning I’d gone out at sunrise to meditate and had taken my Fairy Oracle Cards with me. I sat on the tree-stump in the center of the circle, eyes closed, taking in slow, deep breaths. My concentration was broken by the sound of a giggle.

I thought a little kid had been peeking through the fence or something, so I opened my eyes and took a good look around, but as soon as I’d opened my eyes, the giggling stopped and all was quiet. There was no one at all in the area – and being that it was dawn, wasn’t likely there’d be children playing nearby. I closed my eyes again. Again, I heard the giggle, followed by a “shh… you’ll draw attention!” Then, the giggle was muffled. This time, though, along with the sound of the giggle, I had a “vision”. I saw this fairy card… animated. The red-headed fairy was standing on a tree limb just to the left of where I was sitting. She was looking right at me, giggling, with a sparkle in her eye. Next to her was an older, rounder, “grandmotherly” fairy (one not in my deck) who was trying to “hush” Laughter. They looked like cartoons.

In all the books I’ve read and studies I’ve done, it’s been made clear that to “see” a fairy is not done with the human eye as much as it is with the psychic eye, the third eye, or in “astral” form. I do believe that this encounter was my first TRUE experience with actually seeing a fairy, and she shows herself to me often. I’ve seen her again since that time, and so whenever I draw this card, I let out a little giggle – and it feels as though I’m seeing an old friend.

Her message is to enjoy the humor in life, and to laugh often. Laughter is said to be the best medicine. You can’t feel angry if you’re laughing. You can’t feel depressed if you’re laughing. Laughter heals… lighten up and give a giggle!

Let’s see what the guidebook says:

Card Meaning: Every cloud not only has a silver lining, but it also has a humorous side. Try to objectively stand back from your situations and find a humorous twist. Laughter will help you see your life from a new perspective so that you can receive creative insights and solutions.

Description: You are much too serious about life, according to the fairies. They aren’t asking you to neglect your responsibilities, let go of the sacred reverence for life, or defend your emotions with jokes. Instead, you’re asked to see the humor that runs through the thread of life. Like a brilliant comedy, our lives become more enjoyable when we can see them through the eyes of a humorist.

Laughter helps us to stand back and see ourselves and our situations more objectively. When we laugh, we relax. And when we relax, creative solutions and renewed energy course through us more easily. So, take time today to laugh. For instance, go see that new funny movie or play, buy a book by your favorite comedy writer, or exchange silly jokes with a friend.

Affirmation: I find the humor in life, and I laugh easily.

Serenity

Serenity

Having posted my dream and replying to comments, I headed to the kitchen to refill my coffee cup.  That’s when I “heard” this muffled voice crying, “Let me out! Hey! Let me out!”. 

I looked toward the baker’s rack where I heard the voice coming from, and low and behold, I spied the woodland faerie chasing butterflies that I’d purchased more than a month ago, the day we found that yellow house. 

 I kept her in the box on the bottom shelf of the baker’s rack, telling myself she’d be a housewarming gift to myself the day we moved.  This morning, she called me on it and wanted set free. 

I smiled, lifted the box, took out her styrofoam entrapment, snapped her photo, and carried her back to my room, placing her on my desk, facing me. 

I’ve decided to name her Serenity.

Due to technical difficulties and time constraints, I’m going to group it all in one post – and omit images.  I don’t like doing it that way, but it’s better than not doing it at all.

Today’s cards that I’ve drawn are repeat cards, meaning I’m stuck in a cycle I’ve yet to break.  Not surprising, really, and they’re right on target with how I’ve been feeling.

Today’s Tarot Card: Judgement – I drew this one on July 3rd and had quite a bit to say about it.  Today, it shows up in reverse, just as it did on the 3rd, which means I’m really not making the progress I should be making in this area of my life.  If I was progressing, it would have shown up in the upright position… I’m too scattered, too spread out, and too harsh of a critic when it comes to myself, my past experiences, my current state of mind, and my future potential.  When I drew the card previously, I included references from LearnTarot.com and Aeclectic.Net – today, I’ll add one more reference… from “Solitary Witch: Book of Shadows for the New Generation” by Silver Raven Wolf:

Things coming back to haunt you; revisiting and taking responsibility for one’s actions (past or present); spiritual awakening; forgiveness; facing consequences; learning from experience; reaping what you have sown. 

*Astrological association: Pluto

So, having still not done my mid-point review of July’s Tarot (and likely not having time this morning as hoped), it seems as though I’m stuck in a rut… the same place now that I was at the beginning of the month.  It makes sense since last night I said I lost the last two weeks… and that time is slipping through my fingers.  I haven’t been “living” or “evolving” as I should… I’ve been in straight up survival mode. Go to work, work all day and late into the evening, drive home exhausted, crash…. repeat.  In the only spare time I’ve had, I’ve been doing readings, which is fine – no worries – I’m meant to — but there hasn’t been any time remaining for myself (which is likely why I drew that Quiet Time fairy the other day!)

Speaking of fairies, today’s draw is also a repeat card, drawn six days ago on July 10th.

Today’s Fairy Oracle: Higher Consciousness

Here’s what the guidebook says:

Card Meaning: You are receiving guidance from your true self, your higher consciousness, which is one with Divine universal wisdom. You are listening to love rather than fear.

Description: This card is a validation that your recent feelings, thoughts, dreams, and aspirations are coming from Spirit. You have been asking for Divine guidance, and your higher self has answered your prayers. Your spiritual path has helped you hear this voice because you’ve taken the time to listen. Perhaps you’ve begun a meditation or yoga practice, and this has helped you quiet your mind. Or maybe you’ve put your foot down to the Universe and have adamantly decided to improve your life.

Whichever route you’ve taken is working very well. Now, the fairies ask you to keep having conversations with your higher consciousness. This will involve carving out time away from noise and stress. You may need to take frequent nature walks, join a spiritual support group, or go on a retreat. By quieting your life and your mind, the voice of your higher consciousness becomes increasingly loud and clear. It guides you perfectly through all life areas.

Affirmation: I easily hear and understand the inner voice of Spirit.

The Cancerian character is the least clear-cut of all those associated with the signs of the zodiac. It can range from the timid, dull, shy and withdrawn to the most brilliant, and famous Cancerians are to be found through the whole range of human activity. It is a fundamentally conservative and home-loving nature, appreciating the nest like quality of a secure base to which the male can retire when he needs a respite from the stresses of life, and in which the Cancerian woman can exercise her strong maternal instincts. The latter tends to like and to have a large family. `Nest like’ is an appropriate adjective for the Cancerian home, for its inhabitants tend to favor the dark, mysterious but comfortable type of house which has something of the air of a den about it, a place which belongs to the family rather than existing as a showcase to impress visitors.
That is not to say that the Cancerian is unsociable, just that for them there is a time to socialize and a time to be solitary, and this is part of the apparent contradiction in their nature. Outwardly they can appear formidable – thick-skinned, unemotional, uncompromising, obstinately tenacious, purposeful, energetic, shrewd, intuitive and wise, sometimes with a philosophical profundity of thought verging on inspiration. Their intimates, however, may see a very different character, one with a sympathetic and kindly sensitivity to other people, especially those they love. They are able to identify with the situations of others because of the keenness of their imaginations. They are often over-imaginative and prone to fantasy, sometimes trying to shape their lives to fit some romantic ideal. They are appreciative of art and literature, and especially of drama, where the spectacle and ebb and flow of action and feeling particularly excite them. They may themselves possess considerable literary, artistic or oratorical talent. Their sharp ears and talent for mimicry can sometimes give them success on the stage, though their tendency to be emotional may make them overact. Interestingly – because they give the impression of being down-to-earth – they are often fascinated by the occult and are more open to psychic influence than the average. If they can reconcile the personal conflict of their urge to be outgoing with the reserve that causes them to withdraw into themselves, then at best they can inspire a generation, especially the youthful part of it, by their idealism. A job in which they can express this, and in which they can do well, would be as a leader in a youth organization.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
You should adhere to more conservative ideas. Be aware that people may be lying.

Overview
On most days, you live life the way you want to and try not to worry too much about what other people think. Today, though, you can tell that things are more delicate and require greater discretion.

Daily Extended
Overview
You should adhere to more conservative ideas today. Play things safe, and don’t be too generous with too many people, even the ones you think deserve your generosity. You might think you have a lot of time and resources right now, but give things a second glance this afternoon — you’ll notice that you really can’t afford to spread things around too much. Forget about your idea to take someone out to lunch, and trim back your budget for that friend’s birthday present.

Daily Flirt:
Let someone else be the life of the party — you’d rather kick back and enjoy watching the proceedings, or just chat with someone cute. Your energy levels should pick right back up in another day or so.

Daily Couples:
The urge to save your pennies has overtaken you, and you’ve been remarkably disciplined. Give yourself a little break from being thrifty, and treat yourself and your partner to a little something special.

Daily Singles:
You’re not impulsive type. Having a Plan B, C and D is usually your style. While being overly prepared comes in handy when everyone else seems to flounder, you could come off as rigid and controlling. Give in to a little spontaneity once in awhile.

Career & Finance:
It’s all about finances, today. If you’re out of ideas for whittling away at the budget, come up with a new strategy altogether. Being more thrifty than usual just won’t do the trick.

The Sun:
Cancer, “The Crab”

This month’s Sign: Cancer (June 20th to July 22nd)
Date & Time of Suns Entry (also the Summer Solstice): June 20th, 2008 at 4:59 pm PDT, 5:59 pm MDT, 6:59 pm CDT, 7:59 pm EDT
Type: A water, cardinal sign
Planetary Ruler: The Moon
Areas of Body Ruled: Breasts, stomach, solar plexus
Key Phrase: I feel and thus establish
Symbols: The crab

What is ruled by Cancer? Home, family, children, our heritage and roots, where we feel we belong, the need to feel secure, what is familiar to us, our emotions.

This information is for all signs of the Zodiac.
There are two primary reasons for this:
One is that whatever is going on in the skies Astrologically affects us all, all of the time.
Two is that we each have all twelve signs somewhere in our natal chart and
so the current focus on the sign of Cancer activates that area.
The following information explains how the current emphasis
on Cancer may affect you personally and ways to work with this influence.

CANCER ENERGIES & KEYWORDS
The Sun entering Cancer is also the first day of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere (and the first day of Winter in the Southern Hemisphere). This marks a time to celebrate the light and warmth that nature and the life force provides. This is a season of growth resulting in fruition in the Fall. While this is generally associated with planting gardens and crops, it also applies to any ventures, ideas and/or projects. The seeds planted in the Winter/Spring now take hold and begin to bloom.

One of the lessons now is to continue to tend to and
nurture those things that are at the stage of growth just prior to harvest,
and to rejoice in the realization and fulfillment of our past efforts.

Cancer is an emotional and impressionable sign, and during this time of the year, you can often feel ultra sensitive, even if we are not a Cancer (remember, we all have the sign of Cancer—and all the 12 signs—influencing our chart somewhere). The Moon, the ruling “planet” for Cancer, is the fastest-moving object in the skies. Hence, Cancer is changeable, moody at times and fluid in nature. It is a time that while we (all) may feel more sensitive and emotional we can also learn to be more open, caring and receptive. We increase our capacity for nurturance and our ability to receive~from ourselves, our families, our friends and from life. This sign more than any other influences our ability to feel at ease and safe in the world.

During this time we long to belong.

The four weeks of strong Cancerian influences (6/20 to 7/22), we are often nostalgic and flooded with memories that may evoke strong emotions. To understand this aspect of our nature, we must go into our feeling and emotional realms. Being watery in nature (the Moon, being the ruler of Cancer, greatly influences the tides), we need to ebb and flow with these rhythms. And to try not to have agendas about the form, structure or the outcome our emotional experiences may take. The trick is to keep the inner tides moving, allowing whatever comes up and then not be attached to that, awaiting the next wave of feeling to move through you.

Some other areas that may get your attention or focus during this month are:

your childhood and foundations; your early impressions.
generations and generational issues and dynamics
your genetics and lineage. (You can learn a lot about your emotional natures if you look at the patterns laid by those before you in your lineage.) ….. (read more)

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Someone who’s usually warm gets a lot chillier today– don’t take it personally.

Overview
Now is the time to make your move — you’ve got all the confidence you need and you might find that all it takes is a little extra bluster to see you through. Things could get really interesting today.

Daily Extended
Are you feeling a frosty chill from someone who’s usually warm and sweet? Ask them if something is wrong today, and if they tell you ‘nothing,’ then don’t push it. Respect their boundaries and assume that if they wanted to talk to you about something, they just missed a perfect opportunity to do so. Don’t spend too much time thinking about why they’re different, today. You will have too much of your own stuff to deal with. You can’t pry things out of people.

Daily Flirt:
You’re filled with amazing energy, and if you’ve been putting anything off for later, now is the time to take care of it. You know you’ll do fine, and that’s all you really need to make it work.

Daily Couples:
Sure, the celebrity magazines are fun to read, but lately your own love life is just as interesting. Enjoy a romantic evening out on the town tonight, and when anyone asks for details, tell them you don’t kiss and tell.

Daily Singles:
Today your willpower feels like it’s constantly being tested. Show some self-restraint as you try to dazzle others. Even though your conversational skills astound your friends, you might not get the same reaction from new people.

Career & Finance
You may not be Picasso but you should have more confidence than you do when it comes to being creative. Glorify your ability to think and express yourself in your own unique way.
