First, my sincere apologies for not getting this up yesterday. I was out of town overnight attending a library-ish event and didn’t get back in time to focus on a reading. Better late than never, right? On with the reading.
He of the Fiery Sword asks, can you see clearly? Can you cut through the bullshit to get to what matters, to what is real? Do you have a vision of what you wish to accomplish? Without a vision we will continue to flail, and fail. It is time to consider what we want, rather than what we fear. It is time to consider how we would like things to be, instead of focusing on the things we dislike. When we know what we desire, we can direct your will and energy toward creating it. He also wants us to know that it is possible–and indeed necessary–to take actions from a place of SPIRITUAL will. Or, put another way, to allow spirit to direct our choices and decisions, and to act from our hearts and spirits. So as you are considering what you desire, remember to stay centered in your heart and your connection with the divine.
The Soul Shrinker keeps turning up over and over again in these readings. The Soul Shrinker, reversed, says we begin the work recommended by He of the Fiery Sword by watching our speech. We begin by speaking blessings whether we feel like it or not. Malicious speech, gossip, slander, are never helpful. But something about the situation right now makes it more crucial than ever to try to turn things around by getting a grip on our speech (both the external speech of communication with others, and the internal speech of our thoughts), and finding ways to balance the negativity around us with mindful, loving language. And it’s time to begin speaking about the things we desire, about our hopes and dreams. We’ve spent too long speaking fear and blame, and we would really benefit from turning it around.
The Maiden is a spirit of new blessings. She appears in this reading reversed, a bright hope for the future held back by our lack of clear desire, and by the anger and bitterness in our discourse. The good news is that the possibility is THERE at the edges of manifestation, waiting for us to lay down our negative thinking and speaking, and to open our hearts and minds to better things. She says it is time to view our dreams and desires as fragile new babies who need looking after, nurturing, and praise to grow into all their potential. What we feed our dreams determines how they turn out. Be sure to feed them well.
