Tara

Card of the day: TARA – Goddess of Intervention

Compassion. Wish fulfillment. Assistance. Your wish can be granted if you ask for help.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Tibetan Buddhists believe that the goddess Tara has the power to grant wishes and banish sorrows. You may recall Green Tara who grants wishes to her devotees and White Tara who is known for her great compassion. Either way, Tara achieved her immortality and her dream of being the first female buddha by praying for the welfare of humans for 10,000 years.

It is true: your wish can be granted if you ask for assistance, especially from Divine Spirit. Personally, I hold it equally true that if you pray for the welfare of others, then not only does it “speed up” the fulfillment of your prayers for the highest good of all, but it also raises up or edifies your spirit. So please pray not only for yourself, but pray for others as well.

“…Pray for each other so that you may be healed.” -James 5:16, NIV

Kali Ma

Card of the day: KALI MA – The Dark Mother

Destruction. Construction. Renewal. Allow the old to pass. Something better awaits.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Widely worshiped in India, Kali Ma is a powerful Hindu goddess representing time, which destroys everything. She is often feared, but she is necessary to life. Life cannot exist without death, because with death comes the chance to transform the old into the new. Kali Ma is also invoked for protection against disease and destruction.

The goddess is terrifying in appearance: black in form, wearing a necklace of human skulls and sporting a belt of human arms. When you fear change, you project this fear unto others, seeing in them frightening visages instead of facing your own demons. When you embrace the energy of Kali, she offers the opportunity for tremendous expansion and radical self-acceptance.

Athena

Card of the day: ATHENA- Goddess of Wisdom

Brilliance. Reason. Independence. Be independent. Listen to the wisdom within yourself.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Athena, the daughter of Greek god Zeus and God first wife Metis, was born fully clothed and fully armor-clad, emerging from her father’s head. Such unusual circumstance of birth primed Athena for her devotion to wisdom and art. She managed to avoid the romantic intrigues of the gods and goddesses. Although she is associated with war, she used her reason over force to outwit her enemies. She is also an artisan.

Her primary physical attribute are her bright grey eyes which suggest clarity of purpose. Just as Athena was borne of Zeus’ head, so must we all hold wisdom in our brains. Athena encourages us to think for ourselves independently.

Mercury retrograde 2019

Making the Most of Every Mercury Retrograde Moment by Blesilda C. De La Rosa

Note: In 2019, Mercury goes retrograde during March 5-28, July 7-31, and October 31-November 20.

Why don’t we make a list of what you CAN do during the periods when Mercury is retrograde? The way some experts put it, with all those lists of “don’ts” – don’t buy electronics, don’t sign contracts, don’t start any important ventures, et cetera – you would think you’d have to bury your head in the sand! But since life goes on, Mercury retrograde or not, what can you do to make the most of every Mercury retrograde moment?

You know, it’s easy enough to remember these RE – words:

1. Reconsider your plans.
Since Mercury rules transportation, communication, electronics, and contracts, then maybe you should schedule your agenda during this period. This may mean anything from re-scheduling canceled appointments to postponing the purchase of electronic equipment like phones or computers. Use this time to reboot and refresh your projects.

2. Relax, reflect, and receive.
It’s not healthy to be on forward motion all the time. The universe gives you these 3-week periods three times a year so you can slow down, meditate, and learn more about yourself. If the rest of the year finds you on the giving end in terms of the actions you take, then a Mercury retrograde period puts you on the receiving end, for a change. Download all that insight and reflection so you can be a better person.

3. Remove the trash.
Clear out clutter and physical trash – but more importantly, cut out toxic habits, relationships, and ingrained tendencies toward worry and anxiety.

4. Remember your lessons in love, work, or money from the past. Repeat the steps that worked successfully and gently bid adieu to schemes that didn’t. Mercury retrograde periods are notorious for being the setting for returning karmic connections. If you have done your homework and taken out the trash, then you won’t be blindsided by nostalgia.

Remember your past triumphs so that going forward, you are ready to level up in applying the beneficial lessons in your brilliant life!

Isis, the Great Mother Goddess

Card of the day: ISIS – Great Mother Goddess

Healing. Magic. Power. Your heart will be healed. Have faith.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Isis is worshiped in Egypt as the universal great mother goddess, her name translating as “she of the throne,” indicating sovereignty. Isis is so powerful that she alone knows the secret name of Ra, the sun god.

Perhaps you already know the story of how Isis and Osiris loved each other, and then how Osiris’ jealous brother Set murdered Osiris. Osiris was cut up by Set into 14 pieces and these were scattered all over the earth. Grief-stricken Isis searched for all of OsirĂ­s and brought him.back to life. In one last act of love, Isis and Osiris conceived the falcon-headed god Horus.

Isis brings healing power and gentle comfort to you today, especially if you are forlorn from the loss of the beloved. You can still create life out of loss, like Isis’ mystical, creative resurrection of Osiris. Have faith!

“These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” —
John 16:33 NKJV

Juno

Card of the day: JUNO – Optima Maximus

Protection. Motherhood. Marriage. You are watched over at all times.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Juno is considered the Optima Maximus, meaning “best and greatest” of the goddesses by the ancient Romans. Juno ruled over all aspects of Roman life with her consort, the god Jupiter.

She watches over women from birth to death. It’s no wonder Roman women called their souls “juno” in honor of this great mother-goddess. As the patroness of marriage, Juno restored harmony between couples. One of her temples, though, was used as a shelter for women who needed sanctuary from cruel husbands.

To this day, many consider the month of June, named after the goddess, as the most auspicious time to marry. The peacock is sacred to Juno because the many eyes in its feathers are like the goddess’ ever-open eyes as she protects women.

This group, I trust, is not just about the good, fortunate things that happen to us. Let’s face it: abuse and cruelty can be found in some marriages, and a majority of the victims are women. If you are the victim of physical, emotional, financial, or any type of abuse in what was once a loving relationship, please remember that nobody – as in nobody – deserves to be hurt in any way. You have options. Please get help.

As for those of us who are blessed enough to thrive in gentle, nurturing relationships – remember to be grateful and to extend your loving example to your spheres of influence. If you suspect a domestic violence situation, then please give the affected person the courage to break free and start anew. Do not turn a blind eye or Juno’s eyes can see you, too.

Kuan Yin

Card of the day: KUAN YIN – Mother of Mercy

Compassion. Healing. Serenity. Become a channel for compassion.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Kuan Yin is one of the most beloved deities in China, and she is said to personify “karuna,” the principle of boundless compassion and kindness. Considered to act as a guardian angel to humans, Kuan Yin is also known as the mother of mercy, mother of compassion and healing – and even for someone to say the name of the goddess brings protection and relief to those in need of her help.

Kuan Yin heals those who are sick in heart and body, paying special attention to mothers and children in distress, and even seafarers in storms. She has a temple on the mountain of Miao Feng Shan set upon a faraway island. As people pray to her, they shake rattles and other noisemakers to attract Kuan Yin’s notice.

Dear ones, the principle of “karuna,” that of boundless compassion and kindness, begins with how you treat yourself. What are the ways in which you can practice self-compassion and thus attain to the heights of mercy, like bodhisattva Kuan Yin does? Are you also extending your compassion to the people in your spheres of influence, knowing that love begets love?

I feel that this card appeared because somewhere in the fabric of your life, a fence needs mending or a soul (it could even be yours) needs tending. Be kind to yourself and others, and feel the lotus of love and compassion bloom brightly like a thousand suns within your bodymindspiritheart.

“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.” —The Dalai Lama

Stargazer Bles

I’m putting myself out there. Let Divine Spirit and the Universe find me. So once more, with feeling:

Stargazer Bles is about empowerment and compassion.

Angel readings, oracle readings, crystal therapy, Reiki (all of which I offer) or any other healing modality are just self-reminders of our inherent capacity to balance ourselves and solve our “problems.”

Even so-called problems, as we know, could from another perspective also be avenues for bodymindheartspirit growth and enlightenment.

But wait, here’s the thing: we are already enlightened! Our Mission, then, is to awaken the rest of our human and sentient family towards luminous love, sustainability, and selfless compassion.

“Compassion is the radicalism of our time.” – His Holiness, The Dalai Lama

“We are the love of creation.” – Kuan Yin

Gwenhywfar of Wales

Card of the day: GWENHYWFAR- First Lady of Wales

Leadership. Wisdom. Water. You are a wise ruler of your realm.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Gwenhywfar is honored as the first lady of the Welsh islands and seas. A mermaid goddess, Gwenhywfar is known in Germany as Cunneware, meaning “female wisdom.” However, in medieval legends, she is also known as Guinevere, the unhappy queen of King Arthur.

Nevertheless, she is the symbol of power in Wales, so successive would-be kings were always attempting to abduct her. Actually, though, it is Gwenhywfar’s power which is the real source of influence within the kingdom, not some forced romantic union.

Gwenhywfar is saying to you today: You are a wise ruler of your realm. Your previous knowledge and life experiences have prepared you for this moment, this majesty, this self-mastery. You’ve got this, dear one, or if you don’t, then you’re certainly already on your way!

Special tip: How do you change an oracle-card message into a personal affirmation? For example, here the card says: “You are a wise ruler of your realm.” Just change the pronouns to first-person: “I am a wise ruler of MY realm.”

Whoever has ears…

Re: my “forecast”

Hello, Stargazer Bles denizens! As I write this, It’s May 15th, the Feast Day of St. Dymphna, patron saint of those with mental and emotional illnesses. That’s beside the point, of course, and right now I am possessed of a sound mind as I make my next statements.

You’ve read what Resti has to say, which is basically framed in the language of Astrology, which in turn is basically a study of patterns and cycles. Now let’s look at what the languages of the Tarot and the Archangels have to say about where the Philippines is headed.

The format of the 4-card Tarot spread is Past-Present-Future-Synthesis/Summary. Therefore, from L-R, I drew the following: Ace of Cups (past) – Knight of Swords (present) – X Pentacles (future) – The Lovers (synthesis/summary). Please see the photo below.

The Ace of Cups (cups=water=spirit, blessings) in the past position indicates the dynamic of abundance v. loss. True enough, the Philippines is rich in human and natural resources yet it has also weathered a lot of losses, be they nature-caused or man-made.

The Knight of Swords (swords=fire=passion, creativity) in the present position shows the dynamic of constancy v. “moodiness.” As a people, we are prodigiously tenacious in upholding family values yet surprisingly “easily swayed” by passing fads, fancies, and personalities. Could the results of the recently concluded elections be proof of this?

In spite of this, the X of Pentacles (pentacles=earth=money, resources) in the future position presages prosperity for the country. Divine Spirit still looks after its people faithfully, supplying their needs according to its riches and glory. So yes, there is still hope for the Philippines materially, but who is not to say it is time for hope spiritually as well?

The synthesis/summary card turned out to be the Major Arcana card, The Lovers – The Gemini card. This resonates synchronistically with the Gemini birth of the first Philippine republic on June 12, 1898. On the most mundane level, I see a “traditional” couple – a man and a woman – who.shall rule the Philippines wisely, equitably, and reliably in the near future.

Metaphysically, The Lovers card could indicate the union of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine in each of us, attaining for our nation the unity of opposites that a truly measured and sagacious rule requires. Remember the Babaylans, our local medicine folk-shamans? In effect, we will rule our individual selves effectively so we can rule others peaceably in our respective spheres of influence. What may seem like idealism now may very well be the reality of the future.

Finally, from the Archangels, we are also blessed to have the guidance of Gabriel, Haniel, and Ariel.
>Archangel Gabriel- Leadership- “It is time for you to assume your leadership power and position, and lovingly guide others.”
>Archangel Haniel- Passion- “Trust and follow your renewed passion in your love life and career.”
>Archangel Ariel- Spread Your Wings! – “Do not hold back right now. The timing is perfect, and you are ready to soar!”

“Whoever has ears, let them hear.” – Matthew 11:15, NIV
