Daily Divination 7-15-11 Societal Judgments Towards Psychics; Leading and Following with good intentions; Kua 17 – Taurus, Gemini, Aquarius, Pisces, The Lovers, The Fool, The Star

I regret saying that I feel a vent coming on! I’m going to try to keep it in check—that ole’ ego stuff, you know? The ego took a hit this morning while I was talking to my sister. It’s her boss and his judgments about me and my work as a psychic.

According to what my sister said, he pretty much has me pegged as some kind of freeloader and someone who takes advantage of others—it his own paranoia; but it still triggers that old stuff of my own wounds.

He doesn’t believe in psychics (you see?) and has some judgment that psychics take advantage of weak people—this sets my tail spinning!

My clients are the most educated, intelligent, professional and brilliant people who happen to believe that there are higher levels of mind! Teachers, nurses, psychologist, people who work on Wall Street even; to name a few! Hold on a second, I have to unwind my tail.

Yeah, I can get worked up about someone who doesn’t even know me making these types of judgments when they don’t know anything about me or my work! Baaaaah, Humbug to him!

Yes, it is parasitic to prey on others in order to fulfill one’s own ambitions. That’s true but this is not even close to who I AM; as a matter of fact, if I feel that a client is contacting me too often, I discourage co-dependency.

My sister’s boss has no idea how many hours I’ve worked to build my website and teach and share knowledge—NOT AT ALL for the purpose of preying on other people. Humbug to him again!  But this vent does relate to today’s Kua 17 believe it or not.

Today’s I CHING draw is Kua 17 and it relates to leading and following. It is about loyalty, adaptability, cooperation, trust, sensitivity to others, service and receiving guidance.

But it goes deeper…. The message today is about teaching or leading in a way that always keeps in mind that the ultimate goal is to set people free (not create co-dependency) so that they can follow his or her own course.

This is the highest calling of my work both as a psychic, soul astrologer and as a psychic educator–teaching and leading in this way is also what is pulling me toward offering services in past life regression in future.  It’s about setting people free or helping to facilitate that process.

It’s all about helping to liberate others and has nothing at all to do with anything else self-serving. This is also why the people take my psychic class–to evolve spiritually and to be able to help others.

Like everyone else I have bills to pay and societal obligations and responsibilities, but that is secondary to what I do. I feel this gentleman of the ‘corporate world’ who was born with “a silver spoon in his mouth”—an expression referring to being born into wealth—has never been in a situation where he left a bad situation with $6 in his pocket to start over (as I have). Humbug! Got to grab my spinning tail again—hold on a second. Deep breath!

My sister asked him for hotel points (or something  like that) for an upcoming family reunion and he asks if I’m going to pay my share of the hotel (of course I will!) He assumes that I’m a freeloader simply because I was helped in the past with housing assistance! There goes my tail in a spin again!

Back to Kua 17. Here we look at the opposites of a leader or teacher who exploits people for their own end and followers who avoid responsibility for their lives. Gathering followers for self-aggrandizement and personal power is the worse side of the polarity. The positive side is stretching and growing realizing one’s full potential as a teacher or leader and giving good example in that role in order to give others the courage they need to make the stretch for themselves. Also, being willing to learn from students; we are all students and teachers.  I continue to remain inspired by my students and learn much from them–a fantastic group of spiritual individuals for whom I am very grateful.

I’d like to think that this is where my heart is and what I am actually doing—encouraging others to make the stretch to connect with higher mind in order to affect their liberation from fears and old wounds. I guess that is strange to say as I am, through these paragraphs, airing mine—my old wounds visa vie my sister’s boss. The ego, the pride—becomes offended and this we battle all the time, don’t we?

But back to Kua 17; a good leader or teacher must also be a good follower and student. I am continually learning and following higher teachings as most readers of this blog are doing. Without the teachers and guides that I look up to—without those role models—higher aspirations would be more difficult to attain. The teachers and leaders that I tend to follow are those who are selflessly devoted and this is what I wish to emulate in any role that comes before me to teach or lead in any way, as humble as that may be.

That is the core message of this Kua. Experimenting with different philosophies and teachings while taking different approaches to life is the only way to evolve and grow spiritually. It has nothing to do with any type of manipulative sales pitch and all to do with following one’s heart.

Today’s message is about service and being sensitive to others with a pure heart. The best way to know that you are following the truth in your life is to check out whether what you are doing provides a deep sense of meaning and purpose to life—even if you are challenged at times by the prejudice and judgment of your sister’s corporate boss!

To thine own self be true, as Shakespeare once wrote. Cooperate with others, with society and be adaptable but always true to YOU! (Despite criticism and judgment from society.) That is the lesson of the psychic’s path!

Another lesson for me, received today, via my sister’s boss!

Of course, he did not speak this to me directly but behind my back to my sister as cowardice and judgments go.

The Astrological Correlations to Kua 17 are:

Taurus –self-reliance, being true to self

Gemini –communication and truth

Aquarius –liberation and freedom; working on one’s own (as in being self-employed)  in a unique-to-self  kind of way

Pisces –Universal Mind and Spirituality

 

The Tarot Correlations to Kua 17 are:

 The Lovers –separating from dependent situations; balancing the male/female energy within; staying true to YOU; refusing to let the end justify the means; determining what you truly care about

The Star –optimism, hope, inspiration; reaching a higher level; generously giving to others; sharing with others in good will

The Fool –proceeding with joyful innocence; being true to yourself (similar to The Lovers card in that respect); being willing to follow different rules and standards than the majority of society; taking the path of personal growth; believe in yourself even if the majority of society doesn’t because a good minority will believe in you; follow your heart

With the astrological correlations combined with the tarot, hopefully this gives a deeper (greater) feel for today’s message from the I CHING Kua 17.

It is up to you to see how this message applies in your life today—with my ‘tail spinning’, I’ve given you my own personal example.

Daily Divination 7-12-11 Today is a good day to strengthen bonds in your group – I CHING Kua 13 Leo, Cancer, Aries, Taurus, Justice, The Emperor, Judgment, The Star, The Sun, The Magician

Be cheerful and nurturing to others today. Companionship, Socializing and Group Activity is being encouraged.

I’m flashing in memory to an old notebook that I found in the glove compartment of my old car. As soon as I see today’s Kua 13 message from the I CHING, I think of this. Within the writing of that little notebook were directives to create a psychic development class. I smiled when I saw that remembering how repeated messages came to do so and finally it was created. Frankly, I’d forgotten that.

The words “group” always makes me think of the psychic development class group and the Kua 13’s main message of friendliness, mutual respect, shared goals and strengthening bonds. The message today is to remember that we need one another. There is special warmth that comes from combining forces, or gathering together with others of like mind.

Today is a good day (no matter what day you read this with the understanding of simultaneous divine time) to spend time socializing with others in friendliness and with good will.

The astrological archetypes of Leo, Cancer, Aries and Taurus relate to Kua 13’s message. Leo is about being child-like and self-expressive. Cancer is about a family atmosphere and nurturing. Aries is about having the courage to embrace inter-dependence. And Taurus is about being self-reliant while merging with others. We can now see the astrological influences and how they relate to the “companionship” of this I CHING Kua.

The Tarot archetypes that correlate with this Kua are Justice (fairness), The Emperor (achievement), Judgment (opening up), The Star (optimism/meditation), The Sun (Light, joy and creativity), and the Magician (magical manifestation and communication).

BOTTOM LINE:  Work in a spirit of harmony or shared vision with others today in the spirit of shared goals. Ask the self how doing so could benefit both yourself and the group, family or community.

Daily Divination 6-2-11 Relationships with Other Souls on Planet Earth! My Mercury in Cancer, 3 of Cups Story

Maybe it’s because I have 3 daughters, but every time I see this card, I think of them and the happiness they have added to my life. People do that if you let them. All relationships have the potential to add happiness or sorrow to our lives. We have a choice as to which of the two we experience or memorialize.

Besides, it’s not anyone else’s job or duty to assure whether our relationship with them is happy or sorrowful. We can choose to enjoy the company of others and to celebrate them or not; the potential is there either way. Even to the extent of someone who is sad or emotionally compromised and happens to be in our life, even ‘that’ connection can be experienced differently based upon our view of choice.

As it is with most other empathic people, there is a tendency to sometimes have complete strangers begin a dialogue with you about their problems or troubles. I used to want to get away from these people, but I don’t anymore.

I’m flashing to one memory of a lady in the grocery store who began a conversation with me in the canned tomato section.

She had a cast on her arm and began to tell me what happened and from there unfolded the sorrowful story of her life. As she relived her life backwards emphasizing one sad experience after the next talking about crisis after crisis, I smiled at her and simply sent her love and healing energy.

I could convey more about this experience, but wish to stay with the message of today’s card. The point is that even those who are distressed souls and who may not be fun to “hang around with” so-to-speak can add depth and dimension to our life—just like the happy, carefree souls can.

Awareness comes to us in the closest moments of unconditional love, self-acceptance and the acceptance of others. The human connections that we have with other souls here upon this plane, no matter if that connection is one of joy or sorrow, is potentially healing and consciousness expanding.

As we spoke over the canned tomatoes, I found myself listening less to her words as a part of me rose up and above us both and that part of me smiled down at the both of us lovingly. This happens when I work with my clients too. I didn’t try to take away her story or anything like that, but by the time we were finished with our connection and after she said, “I have no idea why I told you all that—I don’t even know you!” she had a smile on her face.

Somehow she seemed happier and even began to laugh a bit as we took our cans of tomatoes and moved along with our carts down opposite side of the aisle.

My connections with my 3 daughters bring me as much a feeling of soul connectedness and the same is true of my students and friends.

Yet, I’ll have to admit that the closer the connection—such as with family—the more difficult it is for me to handle things like I did with the lady with the arm cast in the tomato section.

I tend to want to engage and fix and advise and manipulate (in what I believe is a helpful way of course) when it comes to my daughters. This card reminds me that I could (and they could) benefit more by me being more like my interaction with the tomato lady.

The 3 of cups is about dancing in life to each moment no matter if you happen to find yourself dancing in the dark woods of sorrow or in an open flower-filled meadow. We must remember not to take life too seriously.

Our connections with other souls can be joyful no matter what state we find other souls to be in and the less attached we are to manipulating their energy and the more we can just be ‘present’ with them sending them love all the while, the more healing , joyful and celebratory our soul connections with others can be!

If you are a regular reader of my blog posts, you may know that I sometimes have a bit of difficulty bottom-lining some of the divination messages that are so multi-dimensional.

How could I summarize a message in one or two lines on this blog post for today? I already have and the message may be different for you than it is for the reader next to you. We tend to extrapolate that word, phrase, sentence or paragraph taking what we need for the moment.  If you have found something positive here to add to your day, for me that’s mission accomplished!

And with that in mind, I will close today’s post wishing you a day of being in the flow of high spirit!

PS– there always seems to be a post script!  I just realized that the forgotten astrological correlation.  The archetypal energy of this card is the same as Mercury in Cancer.  I will (due to time constrictions) use keywords here and they are pretty self explanatory as they relate to this post and the 3 of Cups.  Mercury (as most everyone knows!) rules communication and conversation as well as what we’d call lower mind, intellect and left brain.  Blend well with nurturing, mothering Cancer energy and you can see the correlation–nurturing communication. I have to fly for now…  see you tomorrow.
