Daily Divination Cards - Monday 29th July 2013

Good morning!

First of all I must apologise for not doing the cards on Friday - but I was just too busy getting everything ready for the Eastbourne Lammas Festival.

What a wonderful weekend!

The weather tried to spoil things a bit, but did not succeed! We had some torrential rain and a very stormy night on Saturday, but I was very lucky and my tent survived, more-or-less intact :)

On Saturday most of my family was able to join me, for the annual Lammas family picnic 'backstage' behind the Cheeky Witch tent - which we all enjoy so much.

What a pair of cheeky witches!

Me and my grandaughter, Gabriella, normally both wear our fairy outfits on the Saturday at Lammas - but in the morning, as the forecast was so bad, I decided to wear my black witchy stuff instead. Imagine my suprise when my grandaughter arrived in the same outfit! Apparently she told told her mummy that she didnt want to wear her fairy stuff - she wanted to wear her witch dress and hat!

If you click on the photo above it will take you to the Lammas Album on my Cheeky Witch Facebook page, if you would like to see more piccies!

I had a dream come true on Saturday when my wonderful boyfriend, Richard, arranged for me to have a close encounter with a hawk!

I have always had 'a thing' about birds of prey - hawks in particular, but had never had the opportunity to hold and stroke one!

Richard managed to capture it on video for me too! (If the video doesn't work, try this link.)

As you can see, and hear, it was very windy! (If the video doesn't work, try this link.)

In fact it was a storm wind building! (If the video doesn't work, try this link.)

I didn't want to give the hawk back!

It's a bit fuzzy, but the photo above is a still from the video - click on the picture to go the 1066 Falconry Facebook Page.

Very shortly after, we had very strong winds and torrential rain!

During the rainstorm I had about 10 people sheltering in the tent - while Richard actually held the tent down to stop it from blowing over!

Within about 20 mins, the rain stopped and the sun came out again!

However, unfortunately the rain came back when the Lammas Ritual started - such a shame, but they didn't abandon the ritual and you can see some wonderful photos taken by a very talented local photographer (Graham Huntley) if you click on the photo below!

There were thunderstorms during the night on Saturday and Sunday started off very cloudy and VERY windy, but the clouds blew away and we had a beautiful, mostly sunny day!

Gabriella and I were both fairies on Sunday!

I couldn't believe it when the lovely people from 1066 Falconery appeared with Whistler the owl and I got to hold and stroke him!

What a lucky girl I am!

Back down to earth with a bump today!

I am exhausted, and have lots of aches and pains (getting old!) but I have taken a few days off from Ebay, as I need to get myself and my stock re-organised... My home is a mess - even more so than usual! The living room looks like a stock room, full of boxes and tables and chairs.... which all need to be sorted before putting away again. I also have some major work that needs doing on my websites and ebay shop.

Really I could do with at least a week off to get everything done - but that's not going to happen...

Time to get on with some work!

Below are the cards and messages for Monday, using The Answer Is Simple Oracle Cards.
Whatever your star sign - have a great day :)

Brightest Blessings,

This week I am using the  
The Answer Is Simple Oracle Cards
by Sonia Choquette

Quoted from the pack: "These Oracle cards provide immediate access to your divine Spirit, where you receive specific guidance for any and all challenges facing you in life. Each card not only offers direction for particular proplems, it also reinforces the path to your Higher Self, freeing you from the turbulence and fear of the ego plane.

You can use this deck (and the accompanying guide book) for specific direction, meditation, and life and purpose readings and to offer guidance to others; as well as to connect to your Divine Self, where drama and stress give way to joy and inner peace.

My personal card for today:


Full meaning:

The answer is simple: CREATE

Right now it’s time to summon your creative Spirit and put it to work.

Look beyond current circumstances and use the power within to create new ones.

There’s more to your world than the present is offering, and your Spirit is eager to fashion something different.

You’re stuck in a rut, and your ego would have you believe that what you see now is all there is. This isn’t true, and it’s time to break free from the drudgery and boredom that the same-old, same-old offers.

Remember that you are a Divine creative being, and your primary purpose in life is to create. When you stop doing so, you give up your greatest power.

To create is power - and joy.

If you don’t know where to begin or lack confidence, start with little things, such as a new recipe, a poem, a piece of art, or even a new look. Cut your hair, change your wardrobe, and experiment with colour.

Step up and step out of the predictable and unfulfilling present and into the world of excitement and fun that comes from creating something new.

Once you decide to get creative, your Spirit will assist in the fun. You have nothing to lose but the boredom and dissatisfaction you’re experiencing now.

Today's cards for each of the star signs:

Due to lack of time, etc. These are the 'quick reading' messages - for the full reading and meaning of the cards you will need to obtain these cards for yourself - or get someone else to buy them for you as a gift!
Here are your messages and insights for today. Try to sit quietly for a few moments, meditate on your card and think about how you can learn from, and act upon, its message...

Lend a Hand 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: LEND A HAND - The greatest expression of Spirit is to love and serve others, and your Spirit is now called upon to do so. Don’t mistake service with rescue: To serve is an act of great spiritual power, born of love and focused on empowering others; rescue, on the other hand, is born of a fearful ego and keeps both you and others enslaved to weakness. Simply do your part to help those around you become stronger in their Spirit, without judgement or criticism. To serve is to rule, and your service is needed now.

Call Your Spirit Home 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: CALL YOUR SPIRIT HOME - Are you tired of the same dreary arrangement of self-denial, insecurity, and boredom that you come home to at the end of every hard day at work? You feel this lack of inspiration because your joyful Spirit has been living outside of your body and your home. Your ego has taken over and pushed it out the door. It’s time to call your Spirit back. Your spirit is holy and requires a place of peace and serenity to dwell in. Invite it home by cleaning up your residence and airing out the old. If your home is cluttered, dusty, falling a part, and just plain ugly, it’s not appealing to your Spirit. Clean up and clear out the debris to attract your Spirit once again. Make you space a place truly worthy of your Spirit and it will return. Light a candle, say a prayer, and call it home. You’ll know that you’ve succeeded because you will feel inspired and happy to be home, in every sense of the word.

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF - Someone makes a comment that troubles you. Another misinterprets your intentions. The plans you make don’t go off as you wish. People aren’t cooperating and it frustrates you. Time is running out… It’s all so irritating that your ego can hardly stand it. Welcome to life. If it’s not one thing it’s another. The key is to remain detached and observe events as they unfold from the standpoint of your Spirit. Simply remain calm and don’t try to control what happens, especially before it does. Take life as it comes and enjoy it.


Take Bite-Size Steps Quick message: 

The answer is simple: TAKE BITE-SIZE STEPS - To live your Spirit, you must make changes in your life, some of which may feel too overwhelming or intimidating to initiate. This is just a ploy on the part of your ego to discourage your Spirit and turn you back to living in fear. Meet the challenge of living your Spirit head-on, but approach it with a plan. Break your changes down into daily, do-able, bite-size tasks. First, write down your goal; then approach it one step at a time. Do only one or two things every day to address your aspiration. We make changes best in modest, bite-size increments. Forget the sweeping transformations - this is much too threatening for the ego to allow. Sneak in small, subtle adjustments every day until you reach the goal. You’ll be there before you know it.

Love Your Body 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: LOVE YOUR BODY - Be mindful of how hard it works for you and treat it like your friend. It serves your Spirit and wants to be the best vehicle it can be - you must simply free it from the control of your ego so that it can serve you well. Your ego distrusts the body and tries to shame and control it, or else allows it to be overindulged or under-utilised… all of which makes it sick and weak. Your Spirit, on the other hand, loves and appreciates your physical self as a Divine gift, honoring and caring for it with love. You can’t succeeed in living your Spirit if it doesn’t dwell in your body. For it to do so, you must love and bless your physical self as the home for your Spirit - and then treat it that way.

Quick message:

The answer is simple: STOP - The ego is running wild with confusion, causing unnecessary stress and leading you in the wrong direction. Presently you’re at risk of overreacting to things and are making poor decisions. You may feel threatened, defensive, or angry or feel the need to try too hard to please others. No matter how this runaway fear is manifesting, it’s time to stop. In spite of appearances you are causing your greatest troubles, and no one else. Doing nothing doesn’t mean nothing is being done. The Universe will right any imbalance as soon as you stop making waves.

Be Courageous 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: BE COURAGEOUS - Your ego is intimidated and wants to run away from the challenge at hand. It will offer any number of arguments to justify its fear and to tell you why you should quit now, none of which are valid. It’s okay to be afraid just as long as you don’t allow your fear to stop you from living the truth of your Spirit. Overcoming it is easier that you think: Simply admit that you’re scared. This emotion is normal. The human condition is always fearful. It’s the Divine part of you, your Spirit, that’s fearless. It’s courageous because it knows that the Universe supports you all the way. Breath is Spirit. When you inhale deeply, it gives way to courage. Summon yours by drawing in your Spirit. You’re protected, so breathe and stay the course.

Tell The Truth 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: TELL THE TRUTH - Your ego doesn’t feel safe, so it hides the truth, both from the world and you. This makes life extremely complicated and exhausting, as you know. You can’t feel authentic unless you interrupt the ego and let your Spirit take over. Start by being honest with yourself. Ask the question If I weren't afraid, I would———. then fill in the blank. Do this several times and your truth will come tumbling forth. Really want the truth of your Spirit to come forward. With it will come the power and inspiration to live it.

Invest in Your Spirit 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: INVEST IN YOUR SPIRIT - The ego discourages time and energy spent on developing and strengthening your Spirit, calling it wasteful and impractical. Your Spirit, however, knows that anytime you invest in self-care, it will return to you a thousand fold or more in terms of happiness, peace of mind, and abundance in the outer world. Supply your Spirit with the time, energy, and support it needs in order to be strengthened and grow. There’s no more worthwhile investment right now. - 100% Free Dating

Say “I’m Sorry” 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: SAY “I’M SORRY” - Let’s face it: Your ego hates to admit that it makes mistakes, and it doesn’t like to say “I’m sorry.” Rather, it conjures up a long list of excuses and explanations for its poor and fearful behaviour. The ego ignores the impact it has on others because it’s too busy defending itself. Your Spirit, on the other hand, doesn’t hesitate to apologize for all the mistakes the ego makes as soon as they become obvious. It knows that we’re all students here to learn, and mistakes are an essential part of the process. Your Spirit also lives in the now and is aware that the best way to be present is both to forgive and ask forgiveness of errors as quickly as possible. Say “I’m sorry.” Keep your prideful ego from preventing this important healing. Every apology calls back more of your light. Apologize now - to others and to yourself.


Quick message:

The answer is simple: DETOX - The ego accumulates negativity and holds on to it for a long time. It settles into the mind and body as destructive patterns, attitudes, behaviours, habits, and feelings. The more negativity you amass and absorb, the more difficult it is to sense or see the light of your Spirit. It’s time to detox from all of this negativity, to clear the inner light and let it shine once again. Start by cleansing your body. Stop eating heavy foods, sugar, and white flour or using alcohol. Tobacco, and other know toxins for the next few days. These foods and substances tax your system and place a burden on you, dimming the light of your Spirit. It’s also time to eliminate other toxic elements in your life as well. Are your conversations toxic? Are your habits? Is your thinking? How about your associations? If you aren’t sure, ask your Spirit and then feel the vibration of your answer.

Change the Scenery 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: CHANGE THE SCENERY - Your ego has narrowed your view, and it looks as though you have few options. It’s time to get back to Spirit. Shake things up and free yourself by hanging the scenery. Start by going outside - really going outside and taking a long walk, for example, a hike, or even a trip. There is so much more life for you to enjoy, and your Spirit is calling you back to the banquet. The ego lacks imagination and believes that there’s nothing more than what you see in front of you. A change of scenery will show you that as Spirit, you have unlimited options. Break free - get out, get about, and get a fresh perspective.
