Weekend Divination Cards - Friday 15th August 2014

Good morning/afternoon!

Another week flashes by and the weekend is here already!

No real plans for this weekend - other than to make some more witches' hats!

I need to make myself a super-duper hat for The Grand Witches Tea Party on the 31st of August - to go with the gorgeous broom my Dad has made for me!

(Click on the photo for details of this event!)

I also have a commissioned hat to make and some new ones that are finished, but need photos taken - so I can put them in my Etsy Shop!

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:

Let Go and Flow 

Full message:

The answer is simple: LET GO AND FLOW - Your ego is resisting some aspect of life, trying to halt, slow, or control its formidable force. Doing so is like trying to stop the ocean: It’s exhausting and silly because it can’t succeed. Your Spirit, on the other hand, embraces life head-on and rides the ups and downs, the ebb and flow, and the shifts and changes of life with determination and courage.

Notice in which areas your ego is holding on too tightly to the reins and resistin the flow. Ask, “What am I trying to avoid? What, or who, am I trying to hold back or control? What am I fearfully managing rather than openly flowing with?

It helps to answer these questions out loud. Once you know where your ego is resisting the flow of life, ask your Spirit to step in and help you ride the wave instead.

To help let go and flow, pick up a small object and squeeze it with your left hand. Continuing to squeeze it, try to pick up something new with the same hand. It’s not possible is it? Not unless, of course, you shake your hand free and let go of the object. So do. In fact, shake your entire body free of the rigidity that goes with resisting life.

Breathe in, dive in, and embrace all that faces you now. Your ego may be fearful and try to stop change, but your Spirit is ready and able to gracefully handle all that’s coming toward you. Trust this, and embrace the changes at hand.

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...

Just Sing 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: JUST SING - It’s time to raise your vibration and feel the joy of your Spirit. Today is a day to just sing. Now matter how it unfolds - no matter how things appear at the moment or how heavy your ego may feel - just sing. This activity invites your Spirit into your body and sounds it out to the world. The more you sing, the more your spirit can step forward and wield its magic. Pay no attention to whether or not you’re on key. A singing heart is a happy heart - and a healing one. The world needs your song today. Don’t be shy… just sing.

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.

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.

Give More 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: GIVE MORE - Your heart’s desire isn’t elusive, nor is it out of your reach. However, it does require more from you to make it a reality. Don’t give up and walk away so easily from your desire, frustrated and discouraged by the present results. Instead, make an honest evaluation of your efforts toward realising your dream, and admit where you’ve fallen short. It may take more time, energy, patience, honesty, education, or assistance from others. It might take all of these things and more. Don’t be afraid of the hard work required to realise a dream. Nor should you be afraid of disappointment. Your ego deters you so easily, but your Spirit never gives up on a dream. Your Spirit is able to achieve everything you dream of, if only you’re willing to give your all. So do.

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.

Decide the Outcome 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: DECIDE THE OUTCOME - The greatest expression of Spirit is to fully embrace your creative power and use it. The ego denies that you have any and falls into the trap of feeling like a victim. This leaves you with a sense of being hopelessly at the mercy of fate and without choice. The Spirit, on the other hand, not only knows that it’s a Divine Creator… it actively directs your creative power every day toward satisfying goals. Plan your future based on your decisions, rather than dreading it based on your fears. Visualise how your goals will manifest. Expect good things to come, and know that they’re on the way. As a creative and holy being, intend what you want and expect it - now.

Put Others First 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: PUT OTHERS FIRST - Presently your Spirit is calling you to make choices that will serve others’ needs more than your own. It may be as simple as giving up an hour at the gym in order to help your company finish a project, skipping a pre-planned night out with friends, in order to host a last minute visitor from out of town, or changing your vacation dates in order to attend your employers wedding. Whatever sacrifice you’re called upon to make, know that in the Big Picture, your willingness to do so is serving the greater good of all. The ego doesn’t like to be interrupted. The Spirit is flexible and adaptable, placing service to humanity over selfish interests at all times. So take it easy on your ego - and make it delightful for your Spirit - and expect disruptions.

Keep Dancing 
Quick message:

The answer is simple: KEEP DANCING - Your Spirit is alive and well and making a healing difference in your life. You’re flying high and getting higher. Right now the only thing to focus on is doing what you’re doing. Your spirit is dancing with life, who is a willing partner. You’ll continue to see your success grow, your personal joy expand, and your abundance overflow as long as you keep on dancing with life. The more you dance, the more fully your spirit becomes embodied and the more directly it can lead you toward your goal. Keep up the rhythm and flow.

Turn On the Light 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: TURN ON THE LIGHT - Look to your life with the eyes of your Spirit, not your ego. The ego points out your flaws; your Spirit concentrates on your perfection. The ego sees everything as your failure; your Spirit sees it as process and progress. The ego views itself as separate and alone; the Spirit knows itself to be connected to all and an essential part of the whole. The ego see darkness; the Spirit sees light. If you look with the light of your Spirit, you’ll clearly make out that all is well. Your ego can’t see past its own fears, so all appears dark. Your Spirit turns on the light and thus perceives the value of all your experiences - with it on, you can see that it’s all good.

Quick message:

The answer is simple: REBEL - It’s time for your Spirit to rebel from your ego and take charge of your life. There’s no one to answer to but your Higher Self. It’s time to let go of all past authority figures who still run your inner world, and allow your Spirit to step into command. Be free of the fear you carry over from the past. Call to mind all those ghosts from years ago who scared you into submission with their disapproval and threats. Line them up, one by one, in your mind’s eye, and see them shrinking down to human size. You answer only to God and your personal truth. The only question now is:What is your personal truth? Listen to your Spirit for the answer, and fearlessly follow this as your ultimate authority.

Stick With It 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: STICK WITH IT - As you wake up your Spirit and begin to live in the higher frequency of love, the ego becomes confused and wants to resist. This new energy displaces the ego’s power and renders it impotent so it tries to reverse or arrest the changes. Be aware of your ego’s resistance and stay true to your Spirit anyway. Ignore inner ego dialogue that suggests you’re wasting your time, and thus tries to discourage your efforts. Although you may not see instant results, you can feel the change within your cells as you bring more light and love to your being. Stick with your higher intentions and soon you’ll witness the effects in your world.

You are Safe 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: YOU ARE SAFE - The ego torments you with fears of danger and keeps your attention on patrolling the borders of your life, expecting an ambush at any moment. This is stressful and frightening and allows you no room to relax. The Spirit, on the other hand, surrounds you in a powerful and protective shield of light, alerting you to real danger far before it presents itself, and moving you gracefully away before it shows up; therefore you can relax your fears and allow your attention to rest. Breathe in deeply and recognize how much fear you carry. As you exhale, send the anxiety out of your body and replace it with a second inhalation of protective, loving light. You are safe. Your Spirit is formidable and can be counted on to protect you, so you needn’t fear a thing. Don’t allow your ego to steal away another moment’s peace. You are safe.
