Transparent Oracle Sunday!!
12, Weather: Lightning (South): South is the direction of the midday sun and the peak of power and illumination; this direction is associated with passionate drive and creativity. In the T-O, the weather associated with the South is Lightning, and oh boy, does this make sense. After all, South is about Fire, and Lightning is about a sudden eruption of heat and flame and light. The energies of this card are full of drama, and maybe even a bit scary at times, but they are a great way to break down and end the effectiveness of blockages.
47, Jupiter (Above). Jupiter is about expansion, intelligence, justice and optimism. It reminds us that we are all leaders, and that we have a responsibility to choose our thoughts, words and actions with care because we do have effects on others around us. And while doing this, we also need to keep our sense of humor, or things will go bad quickly.
20, Elemental: Salamander (South). The element of Fire manifests as spontaneous, impulsive and energetic change; its dignities are hot/separates and dry/shapes. Salamander is also intense in personality, but this one is about consumption of fuel, and the changes and transformations that happen through consumption of fuel. The changes presented by Salamander are more transmutation than transformation or metamorphosis. Salamanders are actually known for putting out fires! This is because they consume all fuel and then the flames themselves. They are true experts, and know just how to handle Fire and its tricky nature.
I then stacked my cards and created my mandala. Wow! Who would think that the element of Fire would be corralling the expansion of Jupiter! Incredible power in this mandala, and I’m not sure just what will happen as a result of these energies, but something will!!
Lots of sun and fun this 4th of July weekend! Awesome weather, awesome company, and everything has been perfect!
We had company this long holiday weekend, and we had an awesome time. The weather cooperated completely, hot, sunny, and not too much humidity. We biked and walked all over the place, spent late afternoons on the beach. Thursday night we saw fireworks, and Friday night we went to dinner and a show (Jackson Browne) in Atlantic City.
I spent all of today working in my garden, and oh boy, did I get sunburned. My shoulders are red like the lobsters we had for dinner on Thursday. All that Fire mentioned in my spread today must have been a literal warning! Back to reality tomorrow.
