Lion's Gate Weekend Edition: Saturn's Day & Sun-Day August 8 th & 9th 2015

Daily Intuitive Guidance for the Now Age

Each week, as I feel guided, I will feature a deck from my own collection, along with intuitive impressions from the cards at the time of drawing them, a suggested focus for the day (mantras) and a theme for the week. This week's featured deck is the Shapeshifter Tarot co-created by D.F  Conway & Sirona Knight and illustrated by Lisa Hunt.

Why I love this deck: This is the first deck I was attracted too. I would visit a local pagan book store on my lunch breaks, over the course of the year had looked at many decks but always came back to the amazing artwork in this deck. At the end of that school-year the shop closed so my mom brought me to pick a deck out for my 15th birthday. I knew it was THE one for me to learn on after I asked it to show me a guide for divination and the same card showed up 21 times in a row. Twenty one is a sacred number for initiation and integration in
Reiki for which I had my second degree at the time. The guide in question is still with me to this day: Warrior of Earth: Queen Medb (Maeve), Goddess of Tara (ancient word for earth and the center of Eire/Ireland) and the land's sovereignty, turned Faery Queen of Connaught when the Tuathat De Dannan (children of the good god aka the Fae) merged with the land and it's people. She is known as a powerful warrior, lover and sorceress with the ability to shapeshift into a white unicorn, representing the pure power of Love over all things. She watches over anyone gifted with second sight or visions. Her main message is "You are the pattern maker and breaker of your existence." She is a aspect of the Divine Feminine principle.


The Divine Feminine comes roaring back with the lion-headed goddess Sekhmet & the Madgalene as co-emissaries of fierce unconditional compassion and courage.

Intuitive Impressions: Power is about overcoming fear by merging our physical and spiritual aspects as One. We have the opportunity to shed our perceived limitations
and embrace fear as False Evidence Appearing Real. Step out of your delusion and into your Soul's path. Nothing can ever harm you unless you allow it, and the moment you do, it becomes a lesson you agreed to. The victim is no more. You are the creator of you destiny. Claim it!  Be it! 


Liked the blog? Looking for a little help reconnecting to your own Inner Guidance or want to learn more about Divination?   Check out my Personal Intuitive Guidance sessions (aka readings). They can be a great way to get to the Heart of the Matter and explore different tools to help deepen our connection to our intuition.  While the Celtic Moon Sign Astrology Report provides in-depth exploration of the challenges and opportunities working on accepting the Shadow Self (what we don't consciously know or "like" about ourselves) can bring.  

What is so special about this deck: "Open your Inner Vision... See through the keen eyes of the hawk for insights that transcend time and space. Merge your being with the ever-shifting flow of water, and tap a well of creativity you never knew you had. Hear the messages on the wind- it's possible, if you know how to listen. When you look at the world through other eyes and hear  through others ears, you are changed.  This is the power of the Shapeshifter Tarot: to broaden, deepen transform you. To uncover traits, characteristics, potentials that have lain hidden until now. To awaken your connection with wind, water, earth and every living thing. This deck will guide you through the magickal and Celtic symbolism , help you move into a world of new perceptions and insights.  The Shapeshifter Tarot speaks the language your spirit knows. listen to the messages it brings... and see all your life's pathways , possibilities and dreams with clearer vision."

Our friend the toad joins us in this weekend's transition into a wider conscious awareness of Humanities place in a greater community of conscious loving Beings. It's not just about "us" as a species it's about ALL of Creatures in Creation. We are healing & wholing as One and we are moving on as One.

MANTRA OF THE WEEK:  
I AM FIERCE IN MY COMPASSION AND PROTECT ALL WHO ARE IN NEED


Intuitive Impressions of the week: Time to cultivate the impersonal-observer/ all-seeing eye. Integrate you inner Feminine qualities to release your creative spark, the Fire Goddess within. Remember to feed your inner fire as this is your vehicle for both creation & destruction, depending on how you use it, fire can both heal and burn. Dare to remember Who You Really Are.


MANTRA FOR SUN-DAY: I AM GATHERING ALL THE RESOURCES I NEED FOR THE COMING CHANGES

  SUN-DAY'S AUGUST 9 TH 2015-CARD 8 OF FIRE- STASIS-MINOR ARCANA- LIMBO, FRIGIDNESS, WAITING, RESTRICTION

 SUN-DAY'S AUGUST 9 TH 2015-CARD 8 OF FIRE- STASIS-MINOR ARCANA- LIMBO, FRIGIDNESS, WAITING, RESTRICTION

Intuitive Impressions: The bear is the symbol of self-love and it an ancient teacher of the healing power of herbs. Sometimes we need to hibernate, this a good time to wait, gather
energy in reserve, watch how things unfold naturally within the next 8 days, weeks or months. Bide your time until it feels right to act, until then, rest. An ideal time to practice letting go.
