We went out in our RV, Lucy, for several days. It was refreshing to have no internet or phone service while we were there. Taking time for hikes along a stream bank and climbing over a rock fall quiets the mind for a while and allows a fresh outlook. The weather was perfect (ah, summer in the PNW) and we met wonderful people camping in the same area.
My card for today is Determination (traditional Chariot card). Our Tarot of Empowerment interpretation indicates fast, rapid change coming my way. The card suggests I will be empowered by having faith in myself and in the decisions I will be making today. I’m to travel on my journey with my personal beliefs and values as my compass. You can find your card for today (or any day) by clicking here.
The card for the month is the Strength card and the energy of this card will be a subtle influence all month. See details below for the interpretation of the card..
I’m offering a limited enrollment, one-day workshop on October 15 which will offer tools to bring desired change your life. See details below.
Blessing and hugs,
Evolving to Become Who You Want to Be
October is the 10th month of the year which is represented by the Wheel of Fortune in the Tarot. The Wheel of Fortune is about releasing karma, identifying and embracing the new.
Ten is reduced to the number 1, which is the Magician, the card representing manifestation. Once you have the tools to release what no longer serves you, you will be in the position to manifest the person you wish to become.
The veil between the worlds thins as we prepare for Halloween. This is a perfect time of the year to communicate with your angels and guides to learn about your life purpose, to release the old and embrace changes.
The goal of this workshop is to empower you to use tools such as Tarot, ritual, and mask making to call in and manifest your life purpose. We’ll be meeting at a beautiful private retreat home in Skagit County. The land is sacred and we’ll have the opportunity to explore our surroundings as we explore ourselves.
Details: Octiber 15, 9:30am to 5:30pm Bring a sack lunch, shoes and jacket for possible rainy walks, an open heart and mind.
Fee: $100 includes all materials
Location to be announced to attendees.

EMPOWER YOURSELF and others by allowing them to travel their own journey. Seeing family and friends troubled by life circumstances can kick us into helping mode, which is good as long as you allow them to decide how they will continue their own journey. Sometimes the most difficult thing for you to do is to release the decision making to them and accept their decision even if it goes against your advice. On the other hand, be willing to set limits on how much help you offer and stick to those limits. Continue to love and support them in any way you can, which empowers both of you.
EMPOWER YOURSELF by giving yourself permission to stop, evaluate and continue. A constant frenzy of activity is often a distraction to run from your authentic self. Your authentic self can be active and involved in a million things, but by taking the time to stop and evaluate why you are doing what you are doing, you become empowered to follow your unique and true course of life.
The card for August, the 8th month, is Strength. Strength represents taming the wild beast through gentleness and compassion. Strength has gone among the wild horses, captured a mare and tamed her. The mare not only carries her, the mare has become her ally.
Times are always turbulent to one extent or another. During this time in the US we are faced with divisions of philosophy and approaches to problem solving. By working to bring forth our compassion and grace, perhaps we can do our part to tame the wild beast. Consciously practice gentleness and compassion during this entire month.
August Full Moon
The full moon this month is on August 18. The full moon the time to shine the light in the dark places of your life and release that which no longer serves you.
Ask yourself what energy is holding you back and that you need to release during this full moon. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and pull a card from any divination deck. Meditate on the meaning of the card.
Be empowered to ask the Universe to manifest that which is in your highest and best good.
Pull a second card to determine what energy to call into your life to replace what you just released. Pay attention to where this energy makes itself known during the course of the next 2 weeks before the next new moon.
