Once In A Blue Moon; Tarot Reading

Today I decided to do a bit of meditation under the blue moon, and while I was sitting there I felt like I should ask my tarot deck a question. So I did, and the question in the front of my mind had to do with my current relationship status. My relationship with my boyfriend recently ended and I was meditating on how I should act taking my first steps into the life of being single again. To this question, I got the King of Swords. Now, I’m not the best at reading tarot, I’ve had my deck for maybe 3 years now but I still can’t read them good without a book and interpret them well enough.

What I got though from the card is that it feels like even though there are a lot going on around me right now, a whirlwind of work, essays, new people coming to the island to study, I should keep a cool head. So even if I may want to throw myself into a new relationship or even have a passionate, thrilling night once in a while, I need to take a step back and just breathe and be in solitude in that aspect for a little time. And I think that is absolutely right. I may want someone to kiss and cuddle and talk to, but my journey right now needs to take an inward path, and I need to do that alone. So even if the fire of passion or the whirlwind of air want to grab me away in a wild dance, I have to focus and connect with the grounding earth and the calming water.

Now this may not really be what the King of Swords stands for, but this is what spoke out inside me, and I feel I should follow that inner suggestion.

What do you think the King of Swords stands for? And what have you been doing under the blue moon?

Blessed Be

Days of Witchery: 12. Picture of Nature (Air)

I choose this picture because it touched something inside me. That you can see the breath of the wolf, breath of life. I can’t explain it, I just connected with the image. Enjoy.

Days of Witchery: 7. Air Element.

If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it. ~ Toni Morrison

Air, something we all breathe in, everyday, often without even thinking about. Invisible life. Perhaps it’s our inability to see and touch it that we humans pollute it so. Most people are too stressed and in a hurry to just stop.

Stop in the street, or anywhere really, and just take a deep breath, feeling the air soaring into your lungs. Just stand there and let the air gently lift you hair and caress your skin. That is something we forget and some people won’t notice it until it’s gone.

So if beloved Lady Air takes her hand from us, it will not be long before all regret the hurt we’ve caused her.

The record for holding one breath is 19 minutes and 21 seconds.

How long will you survive?
