Aloha Friday Tarot : May 18th, 2018

Aloha Light Surfer!

Here is our #AlohaFriday Mini-Tarot reading for 18 May, 2018 via my instagram account @candicosmic! I wanted to have a little bit of fun with this one since I'd had such a wonderful adventure when I did the reading--enjoy the video! Keep scrolling for images and write-up! xx

Please keep in mind that in spite of the card you chose, my intention(s) were also so that the three cards present would offer cohesion in a past, present, future sort of perspective around the ending of this week, a look at the weekend a little insight into what we can expect come Monday/Tuesday of next week...

 XI | Strength :

What can I say... this card has so many meanings, especially now. If Strength came up for you today, there are a few things that this means and/or could mean. For starters, whatever you're resisting will persist so if you're struggling to let go of something, chances are it's your own stubbornness blocking you from seeing/sensing clearly. Additionally, this card denotes a time of commitment to something personal for you, whatever that may be; but it's definitely a much more intimate and internal process that you're moving through right now. A beautiful projection to round things out here is that Strength at this moment is foreshadowing success to come--you're in a position of preparing if not being in the throws of a major shift or upleveling... get ready, it's here.

 

Knower | Sage of Crystals :

Traditionally represented by the Knight of Swords, the Knower in this instance comes through with a touch of pomp and circumstance. What I mean is, not all that glimmers may indeed be gold in your current situation, however... on the flip-side (and frankly the best side LOL), the stuff that may look like junk (and you may even find a bunch of random stuff just laying around) is actually (potentially in your face) treasure. So don't let your perceptions be too clouded by what you think you may want right now or in the short-term... be willing to spend a little extra time investigating and slowing your roll some; perhaps even softening your approach before charging in or moving forward without thinking... it'll save you a lot of time and trouble later on down the line.

 

Courage | 7 of Wands :

These are masks, totems and other sacred items representing Courage. I offer this message because it's important to know which role(s) you're playing or portraying and when. At work you may be "the boss" but when you're at home, who do you see? You may find yourself being tested externally or you may even be asking yourself, Who am I? It's ok if/when these moments happen; it doesn't mean you deserve this or that you're going to fail. Nor does it mean that you're a bad person. Nor does it mean that your audience (necessarily) perceives you as such. It only means that you may be doing some shadowboxing right now without realizing it. What's the actual source of the issue?.. are you really up against heavy odds or are those odds internal obstacles to overcome?

Upon choosing a card, feel free to reflect upon the entire spread! The intention and prayer set forth while cards are drawn are to be in complete Service to the Highest Good of All who receive the messages.

Mahalo nui (big thanks) for taking the time to activate your mind-body-spirit connection... a hui hou and mālama pono, till next Aloha Friday!

Aloha Friday Tarot : May 11th, 2018

Aloha!

Here is our #AlohaFriday Mini-Tarot reading for 11 May, 2018! Please keep in mind that in spite of the card you chose, my intention(s) were also so that the three cards present would offer cohesion in a past, present, future sort of perspective around the ending of this week, a look at the weekend a little insight into what we can expect come Monday/Tuesday of next week...

 Illumination | Ace of Wands :

If you drew Illumination there are a few ways in which this could translate... The Ace of Wands always indicates some type of "newness" or an "ignition" of sorts. A new creative endeavor or something to awaken your creative, mental and emotional flow should be coming in, if not setting the stage. Additionally, if you've been needing a crutch or support of some kind, this card denotes that you will indeed receive the help you've been searching for. Lastly, and this is definitely a message from spirit--if you're wanting to start or jump into something but you're feeling some hesitation, (so long as your safety or another person's isn't at risk!) go for it... you've put enough forethought, foresight and effort into coming this far--don't look back now, you're ready for the next level!

 

Stagnation | 8 of Cups ~ Harvest | 9 of Worlds :

Gotcha! Harvest made a strong appearance along with Stagnation as I did the cards. Interestingly, I see how these two cards definitely relate with each other. The overall theme here is patience. Where these cards balance each other is that even though there are things in your life/experience that may be coming to an end, you have also amassed a nice bundle of positive things/experiences to prepare you for the next phase. You have some time to really collect yourself and your thoughts, still... even though it may seem like you're "always the late bloomer", guess what? The tortoise wins the race in the end and being methodical, practical and patient in the midst of the chaos (while everyone else is losing their sh*t) will not only support your success but it may teach others a little something too.

 

X |  Fortune :

Well haaaay, look at you! If Fortune was in your favor today, breathe deep and exhale gratitude! If you weren't so certain about how things would be turning out for you, take pause and heart in knowing this: IF for some reason, you're not feeling so fortunate just be open to the possibilities of the good things that might unfold this weekend, even moving into next week. It's been a long haul and you may be ready (if not overdue) for a really nice weekend and maybe even some good news... be aware too though, with fortune, you can't always tell which way the pendulum is swinging in how the experiences themselves will play out. You can, however, keep an open mind and heart, and be ready for the blessings to pour in... You may even be sitting within your blessings already--you deserve it.

 V | Heirophant :

A subtle calm may have already settled things for you a bit--and if they haven't already, just take a deep breath in knowing that it soon will. Much introspection is being called for at this time. An awareness of your inner world and inner thoughts may be urging you to take some quiet time to yourself; and perhaps reestablish some preset goals that got disorganized along the way. It's a good time to start getting back on track and finding a nice flow again. The things you may have thought you lost or had to leave behind will find a way of circling back once again. Exercise a bit more trust, faith, patience and confidence--it will all become clear again, and so much sooner than you think.

 

Synthesis | 8 of Crystals :

Putting things together only to have to break them down again can sometimes seem like an arduous task--but if your perception can shift just a hair in the right direction, the repetition you may find yourself in (or at least the "stuckness"--if that resonates) could potentially blow things wide open for you. Sometimes, when it seems like restrictions are being placed on us, the truth is, it's just Spirit-Creator's way of honing or sharpening other skills/talents/senses of ours... trust yourself and the Universe, even if it looks like you may never find a way out--just wait, life could very well be putting the pieces together for you, beyond your awareness... that's when and how the miracles can begin.

 

Actor | Man of Wands :

Hope is flowing again and your creativity, vitality and desire to go out and get is in alignment to start firing up! You may even be having some ups and downs in your energy levels. Don't worry--if you're not fully on board in feeling the pulse of motivation to take action, be in the stillness of it all and if you're open and allowing of it, the motion of the energy flow will simply carry you along with it... that might be something of a reprieve, honestly. Remember though to be true to yourself, even if you are finding that you have to push a little harder or even fake it to make it, just to get by. There's hard work ahead for you to enjoy and busy yourself with if you want it. If so, it can and will be worthwhile, you just need to be willing to do the work and commit to seeing it through.

May Day is Lei Day...

It's the first of the month and in Hawai'i we would be celebrating Mei Day by wearing celebratory leis and engaging in Hawaiian festivities. I've personally been working on (as it continues to be an ongoing work in progress, it would seem) reestablishing my own sense of routine, grounding into my own present sense of mental, emotional and physical disciplines for my overall well being and wellness in general.

I suppose the point I'm trying to make is, in providing this spread below, my goal, moving forward, is to offer an overall forecast for the month using one or more oracle cards/decks... (continued below...)

 The decks above  (from left to right)  include:  Divine Guidance from Your Angels (1 & 2); Goddess Oracle; Wisdom of Avalon Oracle

The decks above (from left to right) include: Divine Guidance from Your Angels (1 & 2); Goddess Oracle; Wisdom of Avalon Oracle

The May Day spread above made me laugh to myself a little. I love how it started out, literally with Play--being childlike and carefree; and rounds out with The Goblin--the wounded human ego. In uniting the individual cards into a cohesive message... this is what draws forth in my meditations today, for the 1st of May 2018:

In opening up to the warmer moments of spring, honor the child within by being willing to let go of the heaviness that the fall dragged in through the winter (if you haven't already done so...). This card is something of a highlight to the one following it; it ushers in something of a gentle awakening to 'lighter' times... Lightheartedness can return again. Let your heart breathe and be safe in knowing that the softness of spring is here and it's warming up outside--go out and play in nature and express yourself...

With that open heart and carefree sense of wonder, remember to be clear and aware of what it is that you want as well what it is that you're doing and creating as you move forward. What all are you creating with Your special, specific and divine creations? This isn't "just child's play", even though we do need to be carefree, to dominant and first card to arise from the Angel oracle was "What Do You Desire?" with "Play" peeking out behind it...

I suppose that's why Sekhmet arrives urging Us to "Be Strong"; to know your priorities and to know when to have the discipline to truly build and create a meaningful, strong and lasting foundation--no matter what it is. Now is the time to start taking action on all of the thoughts, ideas, plans, hopes, dreams and wishes you've made over the years. Which is partially why, I'm aware, The Goblin shows up as a small reminder to not get caught up in your ego while you're off in fun-land--just the same, don't be too hard on yourself either... if you do, just circle back to the start (like a lei! :)) and remember to Play... it's gonna be already and even better--it's time for a breath of fresh air and new creative and artistic endeavors. Let Your Light Shine...

I hope that this serves you and supports you on your path... Blessings of Love, Light, Aloha & Prosperity All Around...

Aloha Friday Divination : April 27th, 2018

Aloha!

Here is our #AlohaFriday Mini-Tarot reading for 27 April, 2018!

Setback | 5 of Worlds :

This may seem like a repetitive theme as of late, but fear not--what this card indicates (because I always try to observe the upside to every seemingly unsavory situation) beneath the surface, is that there are soon to be new pathways of opportunity formulating where and when you least expect it. I know, it seems hopeless at times, especially when you finally have found a good stride and then whoops! Another speed bump or setback... sometimes, all you want are answers but the only answer you're receiving at the moment is to wait. It's like being in the waiting room when you showed up not only early but on time only to be told that your appointment is running late and it's already 15 minutes past the scheduled time... I completely get it but trust me, in the end, the traffic jams and free rides do all add up in the grand cosmosis of things... if you're frustrated, it's ok... just do your best to be calm, patient... and wait anyway, it will have been worth it in the end.

 

Master | Sage of Worlds :

Patience and attentiveness to your craft and the details of your life in general, are what is in the works for you if you've drawn this card. There may have been things that you'd started a while ago but had to put down for a time, now is your moment to refine and rework undeveloped projects or ideas. Now that you've gotten more of the experience by engaging yourself and life in broader and more expansive ways, you can return to see what new form or direction the seed you'd originally sown is growing into. Remember though, this is your time to truly refine yourself and your process--to step outside of yourself and even become your own teacher, critic and disciplinary. Whether your focus is on your health, relationships, finances, career/work... if it's all of the above, just start with one step at a time, usually inward is a good place to start. Give it a bit of time and patience and you'll see--it will have been worth the effort and process.

 

Stagnation | 8 of Cups :

There seems to be a theme of things being "on pause" at the moment and if you've pulled this card today, you're in a similar position as everyone else (so don't worry). When Stagnation arises, at least in this case, it tells me that not only are things on pause but they've also been stuck too--if that makes sense? If you're feeling particularly frustrated, the message here isn't only about patience, but it's about looking deeper and really going inward if what you seek to find still alludes you, especially. It doesn't matter if what you seek is love, money, fame, healing or redemption even--go inward... and, either way, given enough time, the sun will shine again and shift the world around you into expansion--along with yourself too, as long as you also allow it. Breathe in deeply, as deeply as you can and exhale it all out! Cleanse your mind, body and spirit connection with the breath of life and just focus on being in miraculous flow... it will open your flow once again...

***I've decided to skip the micro-meditation this week as I'm just reintegrating from road travels and such! Additionally, the full moon is coming up and I'm considering offering a meditation of some sort so please stay tuned...

Upon choosing a card, feel free to reflect upon the entire spread! The intention and prayer set forth while cards are drawn are to be in complete Service to the Highest Good of All who receive the messages.
