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.

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!

The King of Cups appears in our day when we are called upon to master our emotions. This King represents the mastery of emotion, of intuition, and romance.

Alternatively, we may be called upon to serve as advisor or mentor to those with relationship difficulties today. In the realm of healing and intuition, the King encourages you to explore your gifts in this area and trust your intuition.

Daily Dakotawitch: Seven of Swords February 14, 2014

Seven 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 Seven of Swords comes into our lives when there is need for diplomacy or priority setting. We may be feeling overwhelmed or as though we have to do everything ourselves. This card encourages us to be willing to delegate or ask for help. We may also need to set priorities and decide what no longer serves us, and thus let it go. This card may also appear if we have recently had difficult words or conflict with those closest to us. If this is true for you, the Seven of Swords encourages you to come to the negotiating table with an open mind but to also be clear about what you need and what you are willing to give up.  Do not be afraid to speak your truth, but attempt to do so without shutting the other party down. Beware of a tendency toward defensiveness.
