Card of the Day – 2 of Wands – Friday, September 15, 2017

Tarot by Cecelia

Here you stand, with the possibilites of a new and different life playing out before you. The decisions being made right now are crucial ones indeed, and not to be taken lightly. It would appear you know this. Mercury is only a few short days away from leaving shadow, so you pretty much have a Universal green light when it comes to choosing a new direction.

It probably feels as though it has been a very long time since you were able to make a decision which was of your own volition. Prior to this, in recent years, it was likely push coming to shove, now, all of that has changed, and you are working your way back into the driver seat of your own life, with the whole world before you. What you are choosing now is a path which will sustain you for the very long haul, so…

Mother Symbols

Good Witches Homestead

No single universal symbol for mother exists – that would be impossible. The Mother can be found everywhere, from the heights of the planets down to the Earth’s surface. Each person and creature on the Earth have a mother, making it reasonable that we each would have different, distinct ideas about what characterizes them.

Symbols are unique and personal to each of us, so there are no right or wrong interpretations. Because of this, the symbols associated with her are seemingly infinite. However, some are more common and prevalent than others, which are detailed below.

Triskelion Symbol

The triple spiral, also called the Triskelion symbol, is an ancient Celtic symbol with many spiritual aspects to it. However, the mother is definitely one of the strongest, as the branching out of the spirals is strongly indicative of the phases of womanhood: maiden, mother, and crone, all of which are connected.

Card of the Day – 5 of Wands – Friday, August 25, 2017

Fantastic news! The time is coming for the resistance you feel to subside and to see your efforts produce results.

Tarot by Cecelia

Happy Saturn Direct Day!!! Today, Saturn will be completing its yearly retrograde, and there is no doubt you have been feeling held back in recent months, in spite of the fact that you have been honed in on a particular goal. Saturn is known as the great taskmaster, always working to teach lessons, but when those lessons have been learned, there can be great rewards. The key word with Saturn is restriction.

So, in what area of life have you been feeling restricted? All of that is about to change. The 5 of Wands represents your struggles. If you wish to understand the frustration which can be associated with this card, merely picture yourself trapped inside of a paper bag, feeling as though your efforts to fight your way out of it are futile. The time is coming for the resistance you feel to subside and to see your efforts…
