November 2014 Tarot Horoscope Reading on Youtube

Hi,

So I am speaking about general tendencies and then going more in-depth into each sign separately.

My own YouTube channel is fairly new so I would live to hear any feedback and if you like it, please don’t forget to subscribe as I am planing to do more divination and  self-development videos.

Why you should hug your inner demon.

We all got our very own shadow side. It is the same one that makes us show a good dose of violent behavior towards other drivers in traffic, eat your sister’s chocolate cake  (and blame dad for it afterwards) or simply trigger harming behavior that might cause pain to us or/and to others. But how can we accept, love and control the terrible monster that we can turn into? Continue reading

Meditation Music from “Maok”

Just as I was loosing all my hopes for Slovakian music scene (anybody who has ever seen DJ Rytmus would be on the same page) … I found Maok! (My hopes for Czech music scene are long gone)

You can find a lot of amazing music on their website http://maok.net/ including some downloads here http://maok.net/category/hudba-na-stiahnutie/ (second one from top is absolutely astonishing concert in a church)

The song that is attached to this post is called “Liecenie” which means “Healing” but I found most of Maok music literally soul-mending.

Hope you will enjoy this hidden gem of introspection music. 😉 Continue reading

What 7 of cups teaches us about commitment phobia.

In Rider-Waite  Tarot system the 7 of cups card represents a person standing in front of 7 cups filled with various desirable objects. The cups look almost identical and they are not grounded but floating in the air. In a sense they are actually out of reach of the person standing in front of them but still within his sight. The very simplified meaning of the cards is to have more choices then one or building a flying castles.

I would like to focus on the “more choice” side of the archetype. Friend of mine recently told me she is feeling like she has to discover all things that are here, don’t really wont to commit to one thing because  she would feel like she is missing something..and I was thinking.. “missing what?”

Of course, when your life is consisting of repetitive stereotypes only that is a very troublesome BUT are you actually missing something by staying all the time at position 0? (yes, I am talking about Fool card) Isn’t that stagnation in the very same fashion?

As I believe the principles of life are universal and range from quantum physics to you having bad day. There is just one “Life”, one and only archetype that includes everything. In the light of this fact actually makes more sense WHERE exactly are you on your journey more then what are you following because it works on same principle.

It is like starting with a stamp collection…and then a coins collection… Different cups, but still the same experience of starting over and over again. Just like the cups on the 7 of cups card: identical and floating in the air, unless you go all the way down on your collector journey and turn it into real experience, then it doesn’t matter what are you collecting.

I used the “collector” metaphor to make the idea more “edible” but this can seemingly apply to other interests or even relationships in our life.

So I would say don’t be scared to get into some “heavy shit”. Yes, it can be a disaster, yes it can be painful and you might have to face your worst fears but  as at the end of the day you only benefit from it. 😉

Music and Tarot : The Death Card

Leave a comment

I love YouTube. I was looking for something completely different and came to this. What a brilliant idea : describing a tarot card with a music. Why oh why somebody haven’t got the idea before since it is sooo obvious.

In most Tarot related book, you will find smarter or less smart meanings of the card and some of the better books even got some “too many words” description offering some in depth outlook at the card. (Pointing out, that you should use your intuition anyway)

Intuition is not triggered just by eyes (common myth) but also by sounds, and if you are bit more sensitive then smells can do it too. I believe this might be a great approach to understanding Tarot cards : as full, all sense experience, where you can not just see the card, but also hear, feel and smell (not the smell of the paper! I am talking metaphorically!)

However, back the video, I like it a lot not just because I am fan of any macabre classical music (Dance Macabre -all time fav) but because of the mood of it, you got the sense of slow transition, place where you have to go alone, but you are not afraid of it anymore.

Death is making us stronger, it liberates our spirit. Unbind truth from fake. Set us free from pain and connect us back with the Source Of All Life.

It is one of the most remarkable forces ever given to us. It deserves our respect, not fear. 🙂

This video is quite old, you probably already have seen it. But even if you did I would like to add some thoughts to it. Thanks to unmistakable principle of synchronicity I came across this video exactly when I was thinking about where to find true spirituality.

It is foolish to think that the mystery of life is accessible only to humans and even only to humans interested in occult or spiritual.

Life is in everything and everything is life.

And that is why I found this video great, not because of his changing haircut.. but his changing eyes! At the beginning you can see somebody truly “disconnected” and at the end somebody who re-connected with the source and found spirituality without any man-made structures but purely through the process of experience and understanding.

Well… interesting….

“Tea and Tarot” ritual

Today I would like to talk/write about the importance of intuition developing rituals. This apply to both tarot readers and tarot untouched individuals for whom are strongly recommend to get some appealing tarot deck even if it will be just for purposes described further on.

As there is a day and night forming together a great partners, our logical and down-to-earth thinking makes great partner with illogical intuition. Only by combining those two together is possible to perceive the life in its fullest truthful state.We are living in times where intuition and spirituality is very underestimated. This might lead to lack of balance within us and creating a false perception about our lives and priorities.

So that’s why I came up with the idea for “Tea and Tarot” ritual that may help to restore the intuition and ultimately the balance with your mind.

All you need is:

  • Tea of choice (my personal favorite is mint tea or any tea without caffeine)
  • Some snuggling device like armchair
  • Silence or sound meditation
  • Deck of Tarot cards
  • Pen and paper

Now all you need to do is to make a tea, feel comfy and shuffle the cards. Pick one. Stare. Stare. Stare. Let the imagination flowing slowly. Stare. Gaze. Now take the paper and start to write down keywords, stories, sentences what ever comes to your mind. Don’t stop until the paper is full of notes!

Don’t be afraid that it is embarrassing or it doesn’t make sense. If you feel like writing “Fart” 10 times do it.

Repeat this ritual every now and then or “when it feels like it”.

This exercise will inevitably help your intuition and reconnection with your subconscious.

Valentine’s Day Tarot Divination

Hi there everybody,

so as I would say you are all getting ready for the Valentine..? Honing your singing and dancing skills, getting some flowers, chocolates, learning some kick ass poems..?

So to make you even more irresistible, I put together a little Valentine divination. It is mix of Aztec horoscope and tarot divination…

So in general I would say this years Valentines day is looking as extremely good day for love and companionship.

It is ruled by Xochitl (Flower) so great day for beauty- its creating and opening your heart to it. Tarot is also suggestion that you should not try to make any harsh practical decisions this Friday in stead try to somehow find to way how to “juggle” and find balance.

Tarot also suggest it good day for finding common ground and mixing opposites, in terms of partnership or even different opinions.

It is not a good day for hiding and feeling fear, so if you have someone to talk to about your feeling you have been hiding, go for it.  Friday is a great day for it!

According to the Aztec calendar it is also a great day for reflection on past and trying to concentrate on personal growth (even maybe in pair..what do you think 😉

I wish you a good luck, a lot of great new memories and happy Valentine!
