Today’s message is about maintaining a calm and cheerful state of mind; keeping the feet on the ground and mind clear. And also about the importance of spending time in environments that feel right and natural to one’s spirit or energy essence. Nature is our teacher when it comes to environments. A flower that is cut off from the source of its nourishment, snipped from its stem, gradually wilts and dies.
The question in today’s message has to do with asking, “Have I been separated from the source of my nourishment in any way lately?”
When we keep ourselves strongly connected to energy that is nourishing to our body and spirit, we are able to think more clearly. And we are more open to receiving inspiration (and are more receptive to Life Itself in general). Additionally, we feel more willing to manifest our desires.
We are more apt to be able to cut through confusion and realize what is truth for our life and what isn’t. We’re also much more able to help others to see themselves in a much more objective way too.
Sometimes I think about moving to be closer to my daughter’s which would involve leaving the mountains. But wonder if it might result in something like that flower being cut from the stem. I feel nourished by my environment here in the mountains and the peaceful, quiet place here in nature.
Today’s divination message reminds us to surround ourselves, the best we can, with an environment that is supportive to our own natural energies. Nature Itself is already balanced. If I had to leave the forest, I’d bring as much with me as I could by using Feng Shui which is an ancient Chinese system that uses the principles of Natural Law to help increase positive qi (chi – energy) by balancing Earth, Air, Water and Fire energy.
Today I drew the Queen of Swords to divine a message for us; the archetypical energy of this Queen is exactly what I’ve been describing… clear and grounded.
The Queen of Swords in Tarot is a representative of deeply truthful and honest feminine energy that has learned wisdom through what we may call “the school of hard knocks” resulting in clear-minded and realistic wisdom. Drawing this card for today’s divination sure made me think of Elizabeth Taylor who just left her body ending her recent incarnation. If there ever was a shining star Queen of Swords, it was her!
Strong, independent feminine energy that knows how to communicate and is unafraid to share visions and thoughts. This is an ideal that can be supported by staying grounded and connected with whatever it is that makes you feel that groundedness and that balance.
Nature helps with that. And, that ties in with today’s transiting Moon which is currently moving through the sign of Sagittarius.
Sag is the zodiac sign most often associated with nature and natural law.
Sag is about honesty as well as also being the archetype of optimism, humor and philosophy too. The Queen of Swords energy represents bold, bare-bones honesty and all that other Sag stuff– all definately Elizabeth Taylor type energy!
