Trump and the Number 45 (4 + 5 = 9)…

heart-in-hand-2016_05_14-02_02_56-utcWell, our 45th President is sure creating a ruckass, isn’t he? Here in the United States, he is either hated or loved. Majority-speaking… hated. All of which is entirely unsurprising considering the fact that our 45th President is a number 9. Some numerologists will say that 9 vibrates (harmonizes) with the planet Uranus (creativity, insanity, instability). I am one of many who say that 9 is more harmonious to the energies of the planet Mars (aggressiveness, argumentativeness, impulsiveness). Still, that being said, it is entirely possible for 9 to be a combination of both. It all is dependent upon how people utilize the energies of the number 9.

This all leads to the question of what is the number 9 all about? Well, let’s take a look…

The deep down basic essence of the numerology number 9 is a concern for the welfare of humanity.

It is a creative, tolerant, and compassionate existence generous with its help for individuals and organizations intent on doing the world some good.

The 9 essence is worldly and sophisticated. It is also a humanitarian, both self-sufficient and self-sacrificing for progress toward the fulfillment of its vision. The 9 essence has a global consciousness.

The 9 essence sees no real difference in value between itself, its neighbors, and people living in different cultures in other parts of the world. There is little, if any, judgement of lifestyles, societal expectations, religious beliefs, and political practices — with exception to those who oppose the 9’s idealism.

The essence of the numerology number 9 is generous charity for individuals and organizations dedicated to the benefit of mankind.

Imagine the welfare of humanity is your highest priority. Compassion and tolerance are innate, as is idealism. You give money to organizations with humanitarian goals. People are pleasing.

Well now… With all of that in our minds we can clearly see that from President Trump’s recent actions, there is clearly NONE of this going on. At least with him. However, on the plus side, he has unwittingly and indirectly caused such reactions in a good chunk of the American populace and in its News Media in a united response against his fascist and tyrannical policies as of late.

In short summary: The United States is indeed quite likely to survive as a collective whole. It will be a tough 4 years, but overall, its people will emerge from the rubble more united and stronger than they have in many years. Hang in there…

Be blessed,

Witches’ Spirit Focus for the Week of June 21, 2015

Wk of June 21

For the benefit of new readers of this entry:  The spirit focus is not so much a “tarot reading.” Rather, it is more of a meditative or reflective journey that utilizes tarot as a means indicating what needs to be pondered upon for the upcoming week ahead. In doing such, I simply ask the cards to assist and speak to me about the main influences that are likely to lie ahead, and how best those issues could be handled by all of humankind. This reading is not merely a personal one. It is open-ended to encompass the entire world as a collective unit should the desire to ponder what this tarot reveals be a motivating factor if only for curiosity sake. I hope that you will enjoy the journey along with me…

Beginning of the Week (Sunday – early Wednesday)
The focus point is reflected in the drawing of the Four of Wands.  Energies, passions, drives, and initiatives are in full swing.  Now is the time to celebrate the warmer weather, and the growing life in our gardens and fields.  Soon enough, will be the time to focus our energies upon the harvestings of such, but for the moment, we are are able to dance– just because.

We are told…
It may be said that to really be in one place, you need two things:  “presence” and “focus.”  This card is about presence.  Real presence.  Not just merely being there.  When people dance, you need to dance to really be there.  When people eat, you must be eating.  When people love, when people suffer, when people talk… you must be present.  Not on the side, as an anonymous bystander.

Midweek (mid Wednesday – early Friday)
The focus is relative to the drawing of the Lovers.  This card reminds us to follow the yearnings of our hearts but to also follow up those yearnings with clear thought, being fully conscious of the consequences of our actions, and finally to commit with our whole selves, bodies, minds, hearts, and spirit.

We are told…
Opposites are difficult to join.  They turn and revolve and dance around one other.  But as long as they are balanced, they are connected and they are able to create a greater whole.  Even the most simple choice… the choice of love… is not made in one instant, but is to be lived through for a whole cycle.  It may be the love for a husband or wife, or for a son or mother… but however we decide to look at it, love is the language of balance.  It is what makes balance possible.

Weekend (mid Friday – early Sunday)
The focus is on the Ace of Swords.  Ideas and reason are both powerful.  Ideas create reality and reason is what we rely on to determine the truth about something.  The athame (or sword), like ideas and reason, are double-edged.  An idea can float through our minds, as light and elegant as a butterfly.  That idea, if given a home in our minds, can change our world, for good or bad.  Even the truth, usually considered a good or desirable thing, can be wielded with grace to create healing or with malicious intent and cause great pain.  We can use our reason to determine the truth or we can use it to convince ourselves or others to believe a lie.  We usually focus on solar reason, which is linear.  This card reminds us that we have access to lunar reason, which is not linear but based on relationships between things and cycles.  This Ace represents a wonderful and powerful gift, and we should be careful to use it responsibly.

We are told…
There is no limit to what you can say with words.  You can create ideas, express emotions, or just make something you see more real.  Communication is not just between two people but can be between you and the Universe.

Have a lovely week!

Witches’ Spirit Focus for the Week of June 14, 2015

For the benefit of new readers of this entry:  The spirit focus is not so much a “tarot reading.” Rather, it is more of a Wk of June 14Bmeditative or reflective journey that utilizes tarot as a means indicating what needs to be pondered upon for the upcoming week ahead. In doing such, I simply ask the cards to assist and speak to me about the main influences that are likely to lie ahead, and how best those issues could be handled by all of humankind. This reading is not merely a personal one. It is open-ended to encompass the entire world as a collective unit should the desire to ponder what this tarot reveals be a motivating factor if only for curiosity sake. I hope that you will enjoy the journey along with me…

Beginning of the Week (Sunday – early Wednesday)
The focus point is reflected in the drawing of the Four of Swords.  There are things that we’ve had to let go of, and we need to mourn them properly.  We need to figure out how we will honor them in our hearts and minds and actions.  In this way, we bring the memory forward with us but leave the parts that need to remain buried behind.

We are told…
Things take time.  Rebirth takes time.  Healing takes time.  Understanding takes time.  Aging and growing takes time.  Loving takes time.  Something not yet completed is not imperfect… or wrong.  Give time for things to come to you in their own natural time.

Midweek (mid Wednesday – early Friday)
The focus is relative to the drawing of the Page of Chalices.  This Page is a sensitive individual, curious about relationships and opening up to their feelings.  They learn about the world and themselves by focusing on their feelings.  They are interested in exploring the mysteries of life and are very open to psychic and metaphysical ideas.  They are creative and imaginative and express their creativity and imagination freely.  They can be overly sensitive, retiring, and shy, and can sometimes willfully ignore common sense or rational arguments.

We are told…
Dreaming is about a connection between our desires and reality.  Some dreams may be a seed of something more, and others will just disappear to be woven anew into different dreams inside our heart.

Weekend (mid Friday – early Sunday)
The focus is on the Fool.  The Fool is the space in between and is the space where everything exists.  It is both night and day and also neither.  Nothing and everything coexist at the same time, in all time, in the now, which is the only time.  It is the silence before the sound.  The Fool is a conundrum, a riddle without an answer until one is given.

For us, for our lives, we are the Fool when we are at a point where anything, or almost anything is possible.  Until we make a choice and in choosing are immediately no longer in this space.  But before that decision is made, all possibilities exist.  There are no good and bad, or right and wrong.  Everything just is.

You are here, now, in this empty place filled with everything that can ever be.  You get to fill this space with whatever you wish.  The path doesn’t exist until you take your first step and then a next.  With each step, the path takes shape, gains definition.  Soon you will be running along that path and it will be night or it will be day, but not both.  You won’t know until you move.  You are the center of this world and it is your choice that will create it.  Make your choice, make the leap.  Start your new journey and see what wonderful things come of it.

We are told…
The Fool is the beginning and the end.  And it is everything in between.  It is that… and it is not.

Maybe the real key to understand the Fool is to see it for what it “is not.”  Define the Fool by what it is not… it is the zero, it’s empty, and you need to fill it with your own meaning, but it will still be empty… with the same clarity as the present becomes the past and the future becomes the present.

Have an outstanding week!
