Due to an illness, the Sister Dragonfly Gallery will not be able to participate in the Fat Friday Trolley Hop event this evening, so I will not be available for readings there this evening. My sincere apologies for the short notice! Please feel free to contact me if you would like to arrange a private reading. Thank you for your understanding and have a fabulous weekend! Ember
Cards for Discussion
Today, I felt compelled to draw from my “Healing with the Angels” oracle cards by Doreen Virtue, rather than from a more traditional Tarot deck. The first card that I drew was the card of “New Love” and I immediately sensed that I had to draw another card. The second card that I picked was the “Emerging” card. I am not sure who this message is for today, but I do feel that someone or even several really need to hear it. Recently, I have had many clients asking love-related questions. Maybe it is the new year or just something in the air, but it seems that so many are struggling in this department lately. I myself am far from exempt. These two cards advise that it is time to let down your boundaries and allow a new feeling of love into your heart. Please note that this does NOT necessarily mean a new PERSON, but rather allow YOURSELF a new way to feel and offer love. When we are dissatisfied with our current relationships or are suffering from a painful loss or broken heart, our first response is to become defensive and protective of our feelings and opinions. This may lead to blaming other people or to transferring our anger at our own decisions or our low opinions of ourselves onto others. This might make you feel better temporarily, but it is seldom helpful in the long run. I have come to believe that the painful feelings that I experience myself when I focus on the loss or failings of a relationship are only worsened when I blame it all on them. I think this is because these feelings are out of alignment with my higher self or who I really am. Attempting to “take back” the love that you felt for a person just hurts worse, because deep down I think we are all meant to give and receive as much love as we possibly can. Love feels so good because it is RIGHT. It CAN’T be wrong. Love is of the light and it just feels better. These cards advise that we all take time to meditate on feeling of love and let the joy that it brings emerge from your heart center. If you are desperately seeking love, then what you really need to do is GIVE it! As the law of attraction demonstrates, as you give love to others, you will attract people who give their love to you. When someone is fading from your life, mentally offer them love from your heart. If they love you in return, then the relationship might be renewed or evolve in some new way. If they do not, then allow them to go. Send them on their way in love and light, because if they do not respond to love then there is no love for you with them. And that’s okay. Painful, but okay. Ask yourself if far in the future you will look back and be proud of how you have behaved with others in your life or with those who left it. Will it feel better to remember that a relationship ended with hatred and unkind behavior on your part, or will it feel better to remember that you held your head high and ended it with love, wishing them well? As hard as that is to do, I have found that it is well worth working on. This is when you have to learn to love yourself. I know, everyone always says that and it sounds so canned, but everyone always says it because it is TRUE! If you hate yourself, then sadly you attract those who hate you too. Who wants that? Or deserves it for that matter? FEEL the love that you want to receive so deeply that LOVE has no choice but to come looking for you. When you really focus on the emotion of love and let it emerge, it is almost impossible to feel the anger, hurt or heartache of that which is NON-love. It gives relief and I believe it speeds up the healing process as well. May we all experience love in our current and new relationships, be it with a lover, family or friends. May we release the old relationships that no longer serve us with a sense of calm and peace. I wish you all many Blessings and send you love and light on your journeys! Ember

Today was an interesting day, at least as far as my attempts to draw a card for discussion were concerned. I decided to ask for the guidance that I should post specific to the New Year and the energy of the new moon. I wanted a fairly general card that might have advice for everyone, but I continuously drew Court Cards and Major Arcana cards that I felt were representing people rather than concepts. I first drew the Knight of Pentacles, then the Queen of Pentacles, then the King of Swords, then the Queen of Swords. I thought that the cards were trying to speak of my own personal situations, so I gathered them up and shuffled them very well, again asking for general guidance for all. Next, I drew the Emperor, then the King of Swords, then the Magician. So now I was getting a little frustrated and shuffled well again and concentrated as hard as I could, asking PLEASE for GENERAL guidance. Finally, I drew the Queen of Swords (again) and then the Star and the Strength card. So I finally got it. I should really know better than to try and tell the cards what they should tell me! Without fail, they will always repeat the message in different ways until I accept it or just give up. I realized that the message I am supposed to discuss today is that the new energy coming to us this year will be extremely empowering to us all as individuals. New opportunities to manifest the things that we want for ourselves and our planet will present themselves. We must work collectively to make good decisions for ourselves and others in order to claim our own power and move forward decisively. Men will evolve in their ability to expose the more loving side of their nature. They should work on utilizing everything that they already have in their possession in order to work magic in their lives. By recognizing that they already possess everything that they want (especially in the area of love) they are freed from the stress of constantly searching for the “perfect” people and situations outside of themselves. The truth is that it lies within. Conversely, women should be focused on thinking clearly and having the confidence to make their own decisions and claim their own majestic power as equals to men. By thinking optimistically and realizing that they are connected and part of the Universal One, women should be able to draw on their true inner strength and help equalize the male and female energy which has been out of balance for so long. This is a more in depth “Card for Discussion” reading than I had been intending to do, but I get what I get and I say what I feel compelled to say in hopes that it helps someone out there somehow. I wish everyone well in the new year and send you many blessings! Stay strong! Ember
The Knight of Pentacles is a fun card to draw. Pentacles have to do with job, career, money, home, hearth and stability in general. Knights are action cards, so this card suggests that something new is coming your way in one of these areas or it encourages you to take action on something yourself. While it generally heralds good news, the Knight of Pentacles can be a slower moving card, so you may not see huge results immediately. However, if you keep your eye on the prize and keep striving towards your goal, you are likely to get what you want eventually. Just be determined and keep going. Many blessings to you!
