Reading Results: What is the Nature of Reality

Here’s the cards I pulled in response to a suggestion posted by Emily Carding on Facebook:

I had a really long piece almost complete when my computer locked up in a really odd way, so I’m taking that as a sign I was getting a bit wordy! (I am currently more familiar with The Transparent Tarot, so I did a reading using both decks instead of just the Oracle.)

Instead I will just say that as my opinion of Reality is that it’s all relative to one’s perspective anyway, these readings definately applied.  Taken together, I suppose I would sum them up as indicating that the Return of the Divine Balance is being fully supported by the Divine Masculine, even though both aspects of the Divine are still finding their balance and have not fully matured into equal Partnership.

Transparent Oracle
Autumn~Water~Stag

While the Masculine aspects of the human family have taken precedence for quite a long time, there is an emerging willingness to own the empathy that exists in both genders, and this is being exhibited in a harvest celebration that does not relenquish masculine strength and virility but embraces both.

Transparent Tarot
Page of Cups~The Sun~Page of Wands

The Benevolent Sun supports and encourages the re-emerging Feminine aspects of the human family that are reclaiming the Balance between Emotion and Action.

There will still be some time before this is achieved, but I see that great progress is being made and that the there is support for a Partnership rather than a dominance.

That’s my take on it anyway! Opinions welcome…

Divining with Runes: Unsettled

A Very Life-Affirming Reading...
Rune Reading: 17 January 2011

I had a beautiful week-end, even though reading through old journals stirred up some things in my past that left me feeling unsettled.  It was an uncomfortable feeling, and I couldn’t get a handle on what exactly was going on.  To add to things, all that stirring up of old dust in the files in my head was making it harder to stay present and not feel overwhelmed.

I have used divination tools for much longer than I have had my TBI, and the Runes for the longest.  I didn’t feel I had the energy for, nor needed the sort of reading that using the Tarot provides, so I went to my Runes for their usual quick yet in-depth and to the point insight.

It was quite encouraging to pull the three Runes I have an image of above.  Basically, they were both a confirmation of the work I have been doing to clear out old paradigms and ancient dogma that no longer serves me.  They speak of diving deep into the Work, that it takes courage and perseverance. But these particular Runes are also all Cycle Runes… they act as the High, or Major Arcana cards do in the Tarot. Pulling these three Runes let me know to keep going, and to work through the uncomfortable, unsettled feelings.  I’m mining Gold.
