Daily Dakotawitch: Nine of Pentacles March 27, 2014

Nine of Pentacles, drawn from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr:

Pentacles in this deck are associated with Laxmi/Laksmi, Hindu Goddess of wealth, abundance, and prosperity. Pentacles are associated with Earth, with its powers of fertility, abundance, grounding, and governance of practical matters.

The Nine of Pentacles comes into our day to remind us to be grounded but also willing to take flight. The Nine of Pentacles appears when our ventures, projects, and efforts have almost reached completion and are ready to go out into the world. If you have been working on a project or venture, now is a good time to prepare to launch it, share it, or bring it to the world. This card assures us that our work is soon to pay off, and that what we share with the world will be well received. Like the dove poised on Laxmi’s hand, our fortunes and ideas are ready to take flight! This card also encourages us to give ourselves a pat on the back or other credit for our hard work, as well as take the time to thank those who have supported us.

The Six of Pentacles comes into our lives to remind us to share our gifts and bounty with others! Whether this is through the donation of our time or money to charity, helping out a friend who has fallen on hard times, or teaching others a skill, it is important to remember that we must give back. This card also encourages us to see how blessed we truly are — to acknowledge that there are people who would love to have what we have and be who we are. This can be hard to remember if we are dissatisfied with our lives — Laxmi and the Six of Pentacles encourages you to look at the larger picture! If you have been doubtful about your worth as a teacher, guide, or mentor, this card assures you that you have something worth offering and which people are ready to receive! Laxmi also reminds us that we cannot receive with a clenched fist — when we open our hand to give, we also receive, and so the cycle of abundance continues.

 

Daily Dakotawitch: The Wawalak March 25, 2014

Oppression/The Wawalak, drawn from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr

Oppression/The Wawalak equates to The Tower in traditional Tarot

Oppression appears in our lives when we feel as though things are out of control, or when there is a sense of foreboding. The Wawalak are Aboriginal Australian sister spirits who angered the Rainbow Serpent by polluting his sacred pool with a single drop of menstrual blood. The Wawalak encourage us to let go of guilt, shame, or narratives of not being good enough. You may be more aware of old messages of shame from your past at this time. Also beware of using shame and guilt as weapons against others at this time. Most of all, The Wawalak are here to tell you that a new beginning, a fresh start, is coming yur way if you are willing to welcome it!

Four of Swords, drawn from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr:

Swords in this deck are ruled by Isis, Egyptian Goddess of magick, medicine, motherhood, and wisdom. Swords represent creativity, passion, insight, courage.

The Four of Swords comes into our lives when it is time for us to rest and heal. We have been going full-force, and now it is time to allow our bodies and spirits to recuperate. Take time to meditate, pray, or relax. Dreams may be especially potent at this time — pay attention to what your nighttime self is telling you! Those who have been through significant emotional transitions and transformations, such as break-ups or divorces, will find healing and peace at this time. Know that resting for the next stage of your journey is the best gift you can give yourself!

Daily Dakotawitch: Six of Staves March 18, 2014

Six of Staves, drawn from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr:

Staves (Wands) in this deck are ruled by Freyja, Norse Goddess of smithcraft, poetry, midwifery, home, and the hearth. Staves represent communication, intellectual knowledge, reason, understanding, and poetic inspiration.

The Six of Staves rides her bay horse into our day to tell us that we are entering a time of triumph. Honors, laurels, and rewards will soon be coming our way. This can mean recognition on the job, a raise or new job, acclamation for creative or intellectual work, or simply the resolution of a trying situation in our favor. The Six of Staves encourages us to accept and welcome the praise and accolades that are coming our way — it serves no one for us to play small or downplay our talents! This card also reminds us to be generous and kind with the new largesse that comes to us, and to remember all those who helped us get where we are. Most of all, this card reminds us that we have earned the good fortune that comes to us!

Daily Dakotawitch: three of Cups March 3, 2014

Three of Cups, drawn from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr:

Cups in this deck are associated with Venus, Roman Goddess of love, sexuality, fertility. Cups are associated with Water, with its powers of intuition, divination, healing, and fertility of all kinds.

The Three of Cups dances into our day when a time of celebration of community is near. This card encourages us to find deep connections with others and with the Feminine Divine. Gatherings of women are especially favored right now — women’s circles, women’s rituals, or just a gathering of female friends around a brunch table. The three aspects of the Goddess — Maiden, Mother, and Crone — in this card also remind us of our connection with the Goddess and with the cycles of the Earth. We are coming out of a fallow or dark time into a time of dancing, joy, and sunlight. The rainbow indicates that the storm has passed and that we can welcome the returning light. Seek out spiritual community at this time, however that looks in your life. Know that there is much joy on the horizon!

Daily Dakotawitch: Beginnings/Tara February 26, 2014

Beginnings/Tara, drawn from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr

Beginnings/Tara in this deck equates to The Fool in traditional Tarot.

Tara, revered through much of the Buddhist world, comes into our day to tell us to welcome new beginnings, new ventures, and new knowledge. Like her cognate The Fool, Tara represents the first step on the road to enlightenment. New projects, relationships, and endeavors are particularly blessed right now. Tara dances into our day to remind us that it is never too late to begin again — to embark on a new course of study, to explore a new spiritual path, to love again after loss. Even more, Tara encourages us to see the world with Beginner’s Mind — to approach even the familiar as though there were something new we could learn from it (because there is!). Tara reminds us that we can always wash away the old and be reborn anew, every day.
