✺Happy Spring Equinox✺ Equinox literally means “equal night.” And during the equinox, most places on Earth will see approximately 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.
“Twice a year the Sun aligns to give us equal hours of night and day. Known as the Equinox, this alignment of light and dark energy first occurs in 2018 on March 20th. The March Equinox is a sacred time as it represents balance and oneness. By having equal hours of day and night, we are reminded about the importance of finding balance and oneness in our own lives. The March Equinox also brings about the start of a new season and with this comes a distinct shift in energy. In the northern hemisphere, the energy shifts from winter to spring or from an internal state to an external state. In the southern hemisphere, the energy moves from summer to autumn, or from an external state to an internal state. This energetic shift is best seen through examples in nature. In the northern hemisphere the buds begin to bloom, the daylight hours are longer, and many animals have the instinct to mate. In the southern hemisphere, the hours of daylight decrease, animals go into hibernation, and the trees start to shed their leaves. This energetic shift represents the start of a new cycle and is also the start of the astrological new year.” -Tanaaz of foreverconscious.com
#dailydraw#cardoftheday#dailyguidance for Tuesday, 20th March 2018. The Pentacle Page always shows up when I'm sorely tempted to have a "lazy" day - a day focused on creative projects rather than admin or upkeep (*work* work). The #tarot appears to be encouraging my playing hooky (7 of Swords - taking only what you want and ditching the party). Tomorrow is a public holiday here, so coupled with the #autumn air there's a definite holiday/rest vibe afoot.

#madmarchtarot day 19. What can I best do to feed my soul? I got The World as a jumper and the 3 of Wands. There's a sense of accomplishment and achievement in both cards. Of finally getting what you've been working for. Taking a moment to appreciate trajectory is a good way to feed my soul.
For plants to thrive they need nutrient rich soil, sufficient sunlight & the just right amount of hydration. As people we need similar things such as a strong team as well as the proper settings to thrive at whatever it is we are encompassed in. Mental focus, physical wellness, spiritual stability & emotional intelligence are all four pillars to building a solid empire in any arena/atmosphere. Stay away from toxic thoughts. Eat right, breathe right & be light. ...
you take care of yourself like a Queen
you move more emotion up and out than you ever thought possible
you rewrite thousands of years of patriarchal conditioning

Three hares often called the Tinner’s Hares. You can see them in the middle, each with two ears and only three among them! An enigma perhaps of the wheel of time. This one is from the Mogadishu cave 407 5th century AD. This symbol appears across continents and history, with origins from the Silk Road. The ancient Egyptians even used the Hare in the hieroglyph of the verb “to be.” Thinking tonight of how deeply connected to spirit and earth these symbols of Easter are, which certainly predate Christianity. And, perhaps tell a deeper tale. This is not the symbol of the trinity, but the number 3 is present : the past, now, and the future. As we spring into Spring tmrw with the Equinox, how can we appreciate the perfect balance of these Earthy aspects of time as the only way forward? Be Hare Now. 🤣 Remember the present moment 🙏🏻And perhaps in spiritual dimensions NOW is the only reality that exists anyway? Aye me!! 🤨🧐 ...bunny Blessings of these mystical magical elixirs of mischevious magic and fertility and prosperity. May this ancient symbol be a portal to you on the eve of the Equinox. Tonight we get ready to say good bye to the sleep of winter and wake up to the light of Spring 🐰💫🐰💫🐰

One of the greatest strengths that you can have is the power to love yourself unconditionally. Don't engage in negative self talk. Don't put yourself down, especially when you experience struggle. The act of encouraging yourself can get you through hard times and you will be better equipped to find new opportunities in life.
The Girl Child is not about age or maturity. This is a pal of mine in Romania. We did not speak the same language, but we giggled together all afternoon; kissing each other’s cheeks and sitting smooshed next to each other on the sofa. It felt like the way I used to make friends at a playground or on the beach; best buds for the time it takes to build a sandcastle. There’s no harm in finding joy & rolling with it without attachment. That’s Girl Child Medicine. I happen to be really good at it. If you want to join me for a whole day of Girl Child magic, you’re invited. April 3rd from 10-3. Includes lunch, workbook, charms & giggling. Link in profile for details. DM to save your seat! #springequinox#girlchild#retreat
Strength is multi-faceted. It is not, as patriarchal conceptualisations would have us believe, solely about will, might, and force. Strength is tender. It is mettle, nerve, fortitude. It is the calm, quiet inner voice that guides us toward our higher goals + purpose. It is determined grace. It is the embracing of vulnerability, the recognition of complexity, the gentle cradling of shadow, the tenderness we reserve for ourselves in moments of weakness, the ability to churn obstacles and sorrow into wisdom.
Strength is also inter-generational! It is our ancestors blood, sweat, tears, resistance. It is their wisdom, their survival, their battle cry. Strength swims deep within us and guides us in our darkest hours, so too in the sun we harness it toward our greatest purpose, bringing light and grace to all we pursue. And when we fall, we pick ourselves back up, we keep the strum of our ancestors songs alive, and we keep striving, reminding ourselves that we are our ancestors prayer.

#Olokun is an #Orisha ( #Orisa), a Spirit/deity within the #Yoruba nature-based #tradition/ #religion. Olokun is both female & male (depends on which of the Orisha's tradition you personally follow). I have chosen to go into Olokun's female energy. Some traditions speak of Olokun & #Yemaya as two different facets of the same Orisha. Yemaya, whose domain is the surface of the ocean, is the Spirit's life giving & nurturing side. Olokun, who rules over the bottom of the ocean, represents the Spirit's mysterious, dark & unknowable aspect. (In some traditions it is taught that Olokun is Yemaya's mother.)
Olokun means "Owner (Olo) of Oceans (Okun)." She goes by many titles, each of them acknowledging her many talents, gifts, & domains. Some of the most common titles are:
Goddess of the Unknown
Goddess of the Darkness
Goddess of the Realm of Dreams
Goddess of the Unconscious
Goddess of Death - Olokun's domain is often called the Graveyard of the Earth, its cold & dark nature being the perfect environment for the suspended animation of Spirits.
Goddess of Rebirth & Renewal - The bottom of the deep sea is often called Olokun's Dark Watery Womb. Here new life springs forth constantly, contributing to a vast & incredibly adaptive ecosystem.
Keeper of Wisdom & Divination

Mitigating the moment:
Breathe in, this is your life force. Your center. Nothing can break through unless you allow it to.
Relax into the breath. Know it gives your heart beat and your soul joy. The rhythm of your soul in motion. A gift from even before you were born.
Exhale. Watch that shit just leave. You're still here. Dance cos no one is watching 😉 “Don’t forget: temporary insanity moments spice up your life.” Paulo Coelho

What we cannot do alone, we can do together. ⚡️⚡️ If you find you've been feeling stuck on something you've been working on lately, today is the time to reach out and see whether you can find collaborators.The three of pentacles is a card of teamwork - the coming together of many minds, many talents and many viewpoints all in the service of a single goal. Each of these builders has a particular viewpoint, all which serve to make the foundations they are building stronger. If you haven't found the inspiration to create something of your own yet, you might find joy in building something greater than yourself, and learning from other perspectives. ⚡️

Today is going to be one of those days - you might find yourself being challenged, questioned and cross-examined. 😣You may find yourself in the middle of a rather aggressive environment - if mistakes have been made, it may seem like people are searching for someone to take the blame. If you're unsure of where these attacks are coming from, the seven of wands tends to indicate that there's stiff competition and politics at work, whether you are aware of it or not. Much of today's struggle will be for defending your position and your perspective. Victory comes to those that can endure. 🌻🌿
