King of Swords


Tarot Card of the Day: King of Swords

Most of the day, except for the morning, we will feel aloof, silently accepting the things that happen, the people that try to get under our skin, and we may have a distant attitude, not wanting to be bothered and in our own minds. Deep inside, however, we will crave love and affection but feel the distance in others and assume the worst and “not care”.

Things are not exactly as we see them today, so the emotions that play with us are not as bad as they seem. Most of our thoughts will not be based in reality, as our intuition is very low, so what you think you know, you just might not understand what’s really going on. Take this time to be by yourself, but still answer your phone. Keep away from arguments and confrontations, for they may get heated.

The King of Swords reminds us that it is not a bad thing to feel distant from others, but we also have to be fair. We may not want to hear anyone out because of our “whatever” attitude, but love just may be in the air. Don’t shut it out.

Goddess of the Day: Psyche

Goddess of the Day: Psyche

Psyche is the Greek goddess of the soul and is one of only a few goddesses that was born a mortal. Aphrodite was jealous of Psyche’s stunning beauty and all the attention men were giving her, so commanded her son, Eros (Cupid) to make Psyche fall in love with the most hideous of men. However, when Eros saw Psyche, he himself fell in love with her and carried her away to his secret palace where he loved her and took care of her but his only rule was that she was never to look upon his face.

Psyche’s jealous sisters tricked her into looking at him when they told her she was probably being romanced by a hideous beast, and she wanted to see if it was true. She was shocked when she saw that her lover was the most gorgeous, divinely beautiful of men, the god Eros himself. Some wax from her lamplight fell on him and he woke to find her gazing upon his face. He was very angry with her for not trusting him, so he abandoned her.

She ends up spending a lot of time searching the world for him and eventually finds herself in Aphrodite’s service. Aphrodite, angry over Psyche’s concealed relationship with her son, treats her terribly and subjects her to all sorts of terrible tasks. Eros, who is still in love with Psyche, eventually comes to her rescue, they marry, and she becomes immortal. Persistence pays off!

Psyche is a true example of “turning poison into medicine”. In spite of everything she went through, she managed to be persistent and take her experiences and transform them into something positive.

Call on Psyche when you feel stuck, at a loss for what to do and can’t see the bigger picture. She will help you get in touch with your intuition so you can persevere and get to the end of your personal rainbow.

Candle of the Day: Purple

Candle of the Day: Purple

With the Libra Moon, the possibilities are endless, especially in romance. This is a great time to meet people, as we will be attracting a lot more people into our lives and others will be more attracted to us than usual.

The morning, however is a time of minor upheaval, where everything may seem worse than it really is. Although, there will be some good luck throughout the day into the nighttime. By midday, we will have a sense of apathy for things that happen. We will say to ourselves “it is what it is”, and this is a good thing, but this is also a time of misinterpretation, so do not take things too personally until you know the full story.

Light a purple candle today for accurate intuition, as we will not see things as they really are. Lighting purple on a waxing moon also assists with will power, deep insight and meaningful dreams.
