Cards and Initial Comments forAugust

From the Tiny Universal Waite - The Empress

Everything changes
and this is how it should be

the seasons
follow one another

the light and the darkness

and in between them
there are the shades

Everything changes
in your world

and in the midst of change
there is you

sometimes a baby
sometimes a crone

the queen of your hive

From the Osho Zen Tarot - Breakthrough / 11

Break through the self-imposed cell you have been living in.
The time has come for you to realize the prison exists only in the mind.

From the Gilded Tarot - Page of Pentacles

On earth we are students
and teachers alike
in the grand mystery
school of life.

The lesson is love;
the secret is now;
the reward is joy
in the midst of suffering.

Sum Card

3 + 11 + 74 = 88; 8 + 8 = 16
3 + 1 + 1 + 7 + 4 = 16

The Tower


Alternating between
Pleasure and suspension
Calmness and distress
Giving and rejecting
Receiving and sacrificing

I have been wounded
And I have been healed
In the long river
Of my life

And of all the fears
There was one
I could never
Fully feel

There was one
That was too intimate for me
To let go

It was the fear of my
Being able to
Shapeshift my own reality

Though I had learnt to believe
This reality is the work of
The others

This power is too frightful
Not to fear

All voices faint some day
All idols fall down from their

All theories will somehow prove

Knowing one knows nothing
Is more reassuring than
Selectively rewarding

All words are useless
Except for those
Meant to heal


Dear friends, as the summer approaches its end, the smell of autumn has already started to penetrate our memory. Just like the autumn leaves that will signal the natural ending, the mild decay and the completion of a cycle, our souls have already begun a subconscious preparation so as to change their colors and welcome the fine melancholy of September. After all, accepting it all, without trying to alter or distort any 'annoying' detail, in order for it to suit our precious ego, may be the key to our walking through the different times of the year, through the different cycles of our lives, with grace and lightness.
