This card strikes me as odd today – except, perhaps, in relation to my dreams.  Actually, though, on first instinct, I “heard” her tell me to choose the location of my shop wisely because the environment I set up in will have much of an impact on how the energy flows in the building itself.  While I was typing the messages for the King of Pentacles, I started daydreaming about the decor of the shop – of having murals painted on the walls and celings.  I was seeing the Zodiac on the ceiling.  Somehow, that daydream, the location and decor of my physical business, seems connected to this card.  I’m not sure how or why, I’m just stating my gut reaction to it.

I generally guide people to pay attention to their surroundings when this card surfaces – to be attuned to the messages of animals, to be aware of their treatment of the environment, or to notice things in their environment that have changed or might feel unsettling.

The last time I drew this card was when I was looking into buying a house, and I haven’t drawn her since.  When I was looking into buying the house, I paid close attention to environmental issues.  The house I was looking at actually had a gas line running between it and the house next door – with huge pipes and valves protruding from the ground.  It was an eye-sore that someone had attempted to shield with strategically placed fences and vining plants.  The house I was also looking at was located near a dog food plant, so there was the constant “aroma” of dog food in preparation.  Those two factors alone probably would have made me very unhappy (if not unhealthy!) in the long run, so it doesn’t surprise me that the house I was choosing did NOT become my house.

Here’s what the guidebook says:

Environmental Awareness

Card Meaning: The Fairy kingdom is very concerned with the health of Mother Earth. By drawing this card, the fairies are recruiting you to become involved in environmental matters.

Definition: You have the power to make a huge impact on our planet. Earth is a living, breathing being, and the fairies are calling upon you to help her. Your contributions could include recycling, picking up trash while on your nature walk, switching to environmentally friendly cleaning products, becoming a vegetarian, or educating your children about the fragility of nature.

When you spend time outdors, mentally ask the fairies for guidance on how to make your special contributions to Mother Earth’s well-being. The fairies will give you answers in the form of thoughts or feelings, by arranging a synchronistic opportunity, or by helping you use your unique talents to help educate others about environmental concerns.

Affirmation: It feels good to nurture my planet with loving care.

Afterthought: Naturally, I was thinking T when I was daydreaming about the murals on the wall.  That’s what he does.  As a general contractor, he does lots of things – but his gift with visual art is absolutely amazing and raises goosebumps on my arms.  I’ve seen his work – he’s incredible, and if I were to choose someone to bring to life the visions in my head in the form of visual art in my shop, he’d be the one I choose, without question.

The other night, I did a reading for a new client, one who has since become a weekly standing appointment, and with whom I’ll be working closely long term. One of his greatest gifts is interior design, and it was discovered in his reading that his greatest attribute might be in “going green”.  Incorporating environmental awareness into his designs, and his forte is bringing the elements of the outdoors in.  I noticed when visiting his house that each room was an expression of nature.  His living room was safari, with fabrics, textures, and prints that reflected the animal kingdom.  His kitchen, however, was designed in florals.  Each room had a different theme, but each theme was tied together by the common thread of nature.  This is a concept I’d love to have applied to Enchanted Elements.  I don’t want it to be a store or an office, I want it to be an experience – and if I could apply T’s gift with visual arts and E’s gift of environmentally friendly interior design with the elements, I’d have the perfect environment for doing my work.

Ouch… This one instinctively punched me in the chest and brought tears to my eyes.  But why?  Have I lost hope for my own happiness? *sigh*  Surely not. *Even heavier sigh*. Like The Hermit, this is her first appearance here on The Road Home.

When a fairy appears inverted, it means she’s really, really trying to get your attention.  She’s lighting herself up, flapping her wings, and tugging at your shirt-sleeve. 

I’m going straight to the guidebook with this one:

Card Meaning: A happy outcome is assured. Release any anxiety, and feel secure that everything is resolved in the end.

Card Description: This is a reassuring card signaling that the “movie” you are currently starring in has a very happy ending. Situations that appear sticky are miraculously resolved. Misunderstandings are forgiven. Mistakes are forgotten.

You are urged to stop worrying about the future, as your fears could be self-fulfilling in a negative way. You could literally sabotage heaven’s happy plan for you if your worries are excessive. So, go outside in nature, and ask the fairies to help you rejoice in the perfection of Creation. Your joy renews your faith, and ensures the happy outcome that is in store for you.

Affirmation: Everything is in Divine and perfect order, right now.

Right on time, old Friend! *laughs*

This card is not new to me in the least.  She’s come up several times here in the Daily Dose, which can be common… for a certain card to keep resurfacing for a person until its message/meaning has been fully understood and applied.

This card also ties in well with this morning’s draw of the Chariot, and working the two cards together could indicate that it’s time to gain control of the financial situation – and to move forward with confidence that my needs will be met, even if I can’t logically figure out how those needs are going to be met.  What have I written about this week so far, not counting emotional/romantic situations? Spending a butt-load of money at the vet on my dogs – something that’s long overdue and badly needed.  I’ve also written about the condition of the Jeep and my inability to afford getting the work done that she needs – new tires, tune up, and a solution to her coughing problem.  I’ve also been writing about the business – and how/where to get the funds needed to launch it properly and successfully without taking out loans.  It’s not that I’m opposed to taking out loans, but I’m still in the phases of taking control of my gross credit report and retoring it to good standing.

Furthermore, September was the start of a new financial management system for me, using an iphone application to create budgets and track spending as well as recording income.  I used a similar system last year and did quite well with it, then fell out of the habit when finances hit rock bottom to the point that there was nothing to manage (and no food in the cupboards), and I kicked back into survival mode.  September, I installed a new program, one that’s integrated into the phone as opposed to being web-based, and I’m doing rather well with it, even though I’m still in survival mode.  Things at work have been bad… and if they don’t change for the better – and soon – then I’m going to have to seriously consider changing jobs.  I only made $45 on Sunday (a fourteen hour day), and only brought in 25 yesterday.  I can’t survive on that.  That barely covers the gas to get to work, nevermind paying bills and providing food!

It should also be noted that yesterday’s Tarot Card, the 8 of Wands, referred to a possible inheritence of some kind, or an increase monetarily.

So yes, this card’s energy is well received today, and perfectly coupled with the Chariot.  Here’s what the guidebook says:

Financial Flow

Financial Flow

Card Meaning: You have manifested a new sense of abundance in your life. Any financial blocks have successfully been removed, and you are now in the flow of increased prosperity. Congratulations!

Description: Your finances are moving up to a new level. You have been praying for increased flow and have been visualizing greater wealth. Your positive thoughts and desires have resulted in a rich vein of abundance coming your way. This good fortune not only applies to money, but also to increased opportunities in your personal and professional life.

The fairies, who are supreme experts in manifestation, advise you to keep a positive and joyful heart as you experience your wonderful new state. Continually affirm, “I graciously accept good into my life right now” and “I deserve abundance”. If you find that this financial flow ever becomes interrupted, ask the fairies to help you adjust your thoughts and emotions so you can graciously and willingly accept all the gifts that you so richly deserve.

Affirmation: I am financially secure. I am supported abundantly today, and every day in my future.

Well, if that’s not like a hammer to the head, I don’t know what is! *snort*

Yesterday, I drew the 7 of Swords.  When I did, I mentioned that I’d drawn it in a reading that T had helped me with over the weekend. 7 of Swords showed up in the higher power position, meaning that my strongest energies right now are coming from fear/anger that someone is taking something from me, or has taken something from me.  With it, I drew the Beauty fairy oracle… and that found me fighting tears.  I wrote it out in yesterday’s thoughts that I have lost my own sense of beauty and self worth based on past pains and failed relationships.  I felt I’d been robbed of my own worth.  And so today, following up that seven of swords drawn yesterday, Beauty makes yet another appearance to drive the message home.

Have I drawn her before? Not since I’ve been doing the Daily Dose here on this blog, I don’t believe – well, not that I could find, anyway, yet it seems to me I recall scoffing at this card once here before.  Here’s what she looks like:

Beauty

Beauty

Here’s what the guidebook says:

Card Meaning: Appreciate and amplify your natural attractiveness. Your beauty is most apparent when you’re happy and satisfied.

Description: We are all attractive in our own unique way. Part of self-esteem is appreciating how wonderful you truly are. Never, ever put yourself down in any way! Always think self-loving thoughts about your body, your face, your hair, your weight, and every inch of your physical self.

Tell yourself positive affirmations daily, such as, “My inner light radiates through every pore and cell of my body, and everyone is attracted to my inner and outer beauty.” Invest time and money in services that make you feel wonderful, such as massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, soaking in a tub, or getting a new hairstyle. Spend time in meaningful ways that make you feel joyous, and you will glow with the attractiveness of a truly happy person.

Affirmation: My inner and outer selves are radiantly attractive right now. I love my beautiful self.
