Today’s card is relevant in so many ways! It is a great card for me personally, and I think fitting for our global situation as well.

Personally, I have had very strange dreams as of late. All signs point to change. Maybe in ways I did not anticipate, as is standard spiritual fair! Dangit. As soon as we feel like we get it, we’ll invariably be thrown for a loop. Heaven loves a good laugh.

My message here is to be flexible, move ahead anyway.

While the fairies encourage fearlessness on the basis that all is as it should be, I respectfully disagree.

In the words of the wise Mama Bear, who so eloquently said in the classic, Stage Fright, (and I paraphrase here to limit your annoyance,) “of course you will be afraid. It is natural to be afraid. But if you expect to be scared, then you can relax and get on with it.”
The fairies neglect to mention with this card, that you will be afraid, oh yes. Very afraid!

But that in itself is no reason not to move ahead. Expect it, notice it, and do it anyway.

Grow anyway. We all know what we need to do, but are afraid.

Right now is the time to get used to this idea. There is so much to be gained on all levels by noticing our fear, and (sorry fairies) getting over the idea of fearlessness. True courage found in moving THROUGH the fear.

Bring it on.

I will be out for a week or so, on a lovely vacation that can be explained here.

Card of the Day SELF RELIANCE!

Card of the Day, SELF RELIANCE!
I was so thrilled to draw this card from my Healing With The Fairies deck.
Just hours ago, I was engaged in an all too familiar conversation with a friend regarding “3 days 3 ways” preparedness.
We live in the Northwest, an area ripe for an earthquake, or other seismic event, like umm, a VOLCANO!
I am a HUGE fan of being prepared for anything. Part of it is my hyper-vigilance, and part of it is my astrological “blessing” (I am a double Capricorn). There is nothing more satisfying to me than a full cupboard, paid bills and a clean house. Then, I just sit and wait. I am kidding.. sort of.
I have been harassing my friends for years to get ready. Drawing this card is just the impetus that I need to remind you YET again, please get your earthquake kits ready.
If you are so inclined, there are a variety of pre-made types available at Amazon. Just order one, (dammit) so I can stop thinking about it!
For me, I feel better knowing that I have walking shoes, water and snacks in the car, in case I have to walk home. I also know where I will meet my family should we become separated for any reason in an earthquake, and I have a document with all my important account numbers on it with a relative out of state. These things are simple but would make a big difference in a crisis.
We are living in amazing times! I do believe in the goodness of people in times of crisis, to aid and assist each other, and to turn tragedy into hope, as is happening in Haiti right now! That said, there is nothing like Self Reliance, knowing that we have our own backs, and that we are our own best friends. We are the ones who can best care for ourselves, emotionally, and physically.
This card reminds us that when we feel frightened and overwhelmed, we sometimes look for someone to tell us it is going to be all right. Know that it will be all right. In reality, everything is as it should be at all times.
The message from the fairies in this case is that everything we need will be provided for us. We are capable of handling whatever comes our way, and when we don’t know, we will be guided onto the right path for us.
I have seen in my own life that this is what we learn through crisis. Real self reliance is really trust and confidence in your true self.
This card tells us that even when our manifestations funnel through others, they originate with our own thoughts. Being self reliant doesn't mean doing it all ourselves. It means knowing that we are part of the world. It means taking responsibility for ourselves and our environment. We really are the creator of our world.
You are as qualified and deserving as any other person. Your inner voice knows the way for you, and you can be confident that you will know what to do in each situation.
Soooo, PREPARE, and relax, and know you are in good hands.

For further resources on preparedness, I recommend this book!
JUST in CASE, by Kathy Harrison.
She is a fascinating and super hyper vigilant foster mother of hundreds of special needs children (really!) living somewhere in middle America with 2 cellars, and a 3 months supply of EVERYTHING. I ll bet she makes soap out of yams, too. It is written in a non alarmist manner with very practical advice. I highly recommend it.

Card of the Day, PAY ATTENTION!

Card of the day, “PAY ATTENTION”
Today’s card is Pay Attention.
This is relevant card for me. Yesterday at the airport, I missed my exit 3 times! My daughter said, “Focus Panda!” from her car seat.
This card’s guidance tells us to notice signs that are all around us. Notice conversations that you may overhear, and inner thoughts and feelings. Look for common threads among the signs, they ‘re forms of guidance to help you manifest your purpose and desires.
Anytime you hear or feel something 3 or more times (!) within a short time frame, its information worthy of your attention.
Have a focused day.

Card of the Day BREAK FREE

Card of the Day, BREAK FREE
Today’s card is Break Free from my “Magical Mermaids and Dolphins” deck.
We can all get stuck in a rut from time to time, and this card implores us to move beyond our comfort zone, and explore new ways of thinking, making a living or being in relationships.
When you make the decision to to do something different it signals to your higher self that you are ready for change, and the universe rewards you with wonderful new experiences.
This is not to say that you have to discard everything about yourself you want to change. It is just a reminder that when you try something new, and then go back to your regular way of doing things, you are often changed. Sometimes all we need is a little shift in order to see things differently and that is enough to move us to the next level.
This is a time to try out your options. Try something NEW today!

Card of the Day, FOR SQUEAK, unknown- 2010

Today, my kitty, Squeak passed on to the light.
He was a fantastic cat. He will be missed. For him, I drew today’s card from the Magical Unicorn Deck. So appropriate, he was very magical.

The card I drew was “You’ll Know in The Morning”
This card suggests that when we are not sure what to do next, just relax, and let the powers that be sort things out. As you sleep, know that things will perfectly taken care of by the unicorns, and angels.
I guess this is a unicorn’s version of “let go and let god”. In my case today, this is the perfect advice.
Have a great day.

Card of the day SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA!
Today I used a reader question to select the card of the day.
A reader who asked,
“How can I stay balanced and centered in the week ahead”?
The angel deck answers: Solar Plexus Chakra!
The solar plexus, located right below your chest and about gut level, the color is sun yellow, and it is seen as the life force chakra.
Caroline Myss says the solar plexus is the first charka where ideas begin to manifest. I agree! Once you’ve said YES with your heart (4th chakra) it moves on down to the solar plexus chakra, (3rd Chakra) for activation into manifestation.
Think of the solar plexus as where your head, heart and actions intersect, a HUGE power center, full of possibilities. This is where you feel your “gut reaction”. It is also where you decide, “to go with your gut”, and take action based on what you know to be true. This is truly where you honor your life force and creative power!
If you have stomach issues, it is relevant to pay attention to what you know to be true and make decisions accordingly.
The solar plexus card reminds us that it safe to be powerful and take charge. This card assures you that you are in fact very powerful, and that power doesn’t equate to aggression. It is safe to use your power in loving ways. Using your power simply means being true and authentic.
So to the reader who asked this question, I say:
Be a hero and use your power for good! You already know what you will need to do, just listen to your intuition and act in harmony with it.
Have a powerful day.

Card of the Day STAND YOUR GROUND!

Depending on your point of view, this phrase could mean many things.
If you have been wondering about a particular situation, this message is clear. In a general sense, I take this card as an important reminder. It is important to make decisions based on your honest feelings and intuition.
We always know the best decisions for us to make in any situation, and when we start act in sync with those feelings is when we earn our self-esteem.
Think of self-esteem as fitness. You will have the confidence and self esteem that you build up through your daily decisions.
If you spend a life time on the couch eating pork tacos, you will look and feel one way at 50, and if you spend your time eating well and taking care of your body, you will look and feel another.
It is also true for your self-esteem.
Every decision you make reflect back to you what you believe about yourself. Over time you can improve your confidence through daily self esteem fitness through actions like.. STANDING YOUR GROUND
Remember, no one is born with self-esteem, we all work on earning it every day. Don’t wait any longer to start, stand your ground today.

Card of The DAY! Emotional Sensitivity!

Today's oracle card is EMOTIONAL SENSITIVITY!
Today, I pulled out the BIG deck, the Angel Therapy deck. It just felt right, and this is what I got.
It says
Honor and Respect your deep sensitivity, as it is a gift to us all
I love this card. I have always been sensitive, and today, I am conducting a reading, so it is appropriate.
It is always good to be reminded that when we feel off, usually there is a reason. Sometimes its not even US, we just pick it up.
It reminds me also to clear clear clear and to not hold on to things. When you are sensitive, its good to think of yourself like a tuning fork. Let it run through you, and observe! Its not always necessary to respond.

If YOU want a reading, please email me a question, or just your name, and I'll select from emails and post the reading. email to
Have a great SENSITIVE day!
