First Knight/Jerry Goldsmith
Custom Blend with peppermint
MOON PHASE: Waning Gibbous
TAROT of the DAY: 8 of CUPS (See below.)

This is an interesting card in SOOO many ways. I think many people see it as a ‘let-down in the love department’ and let it go at that. But that’s just the surface of this card… it can mean MANY deeper things. It can mean recognizing people, places, things/situations that no are longer serving you spiritually, and walking away from them (a topic my main character deals with in a subplot). These ‘bad-for-you’ emotional ties are being cut; that’s a good thing that may hurt nonetheless. It may mean adopting new habits in place of old ones, you may struggle to create the new habit, but with determination—and knowing its good for you—will keep you on target and successful. If you’re seeking spirituality on a higher level, this card is golden: it means you’re doing it, you’re taking the painful steps to get there.

I had the opportunity to hang with some like-minded individuals last evening. For me, this card is meaning I need to be more social with like-minded folk to keep growing, to have friendships outside work or kids or family, friendships for me—not in a selfish needy way, but in an ‘I’m-inspired-by-them’ fulfilling way. After a meditation with said group, my mind was brimming with ideas and imagery, with phrases and ‘fiat lux’ (Latin for ‘let light be made’)…the light-bulb over my head was soooo undeniably ON and the illumination it was emanating was heading towards super-nova.

I said to them that I would blog about my oBLOGations, but I’ll save that for another day. I’m gonna bask in this warm light and ruminate.
