This month is our chance to really dive deep. Sacred immersion.
It’s sacred immersion with consciousness. Reveling in every detail of the experience. Getting totally geeky about it.
We’ve all got areas where we geek out. Did you totally get into that boy in high school, wanting to know every little thing about him? Are you a Dungeons and Dragons fan? Can you quote Star Trek or Doctor Who episodes? Music? Wine? The latest theory in quantum mechanics?
Now is the time to develop that level of interest and understanding about the sacred.
Approach that understanding from a distance. It’s most productive this month to start with an understanding of how the sacred serves the larger community. Start with your discoveries from last month. Let your inner geek go to town with analysis and questioning.
Then get personal. Look back to March. What did you discover about your sacred self? There’s the next batch of information for your geek self to chow down on.
Throughout the month, don’t be surprised if you find yourself bumping up against the demands of your life. If you’re lucky enough to arrange retreat time for yourself, make it happen. Keep cutting those around you some slack – we’re all feeling that we need to go our own way. And you can use those edgy moments to help you understand your own sacred more deeply.
Sanctify the sacred.
Yes, numerological counseling is amoung the services offered here.

Lets go back to basics to welcome back XIX The Sun, even though we’ve looked at it before.
Those of you who’ve learned through Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think can see that XIX The Sun has a keyword of “self-actualisation”.
Who are you, actually? There’s who your friends think you are, who your kids think you are, who your boss thinks you are . . . . And who do you think you are? (Only get rid of the accusatory tone that usually goes with that question.)
You also know that the Majors are indicators of circumstances that will make deep changes in you, if you let them.
Does that make you fearful that big horrible things will happen that show you up to be exactly the person you didn’t want to be?
Not. Gonna. Happen.
Look at the lovely image from The Enchanted Tarot. What do you see there that’s big and horrible and repulsive?
Mostly we’ve got that big happy smiling sun face. What does that say to you?
And the sun’s rays are shining down on two birds. What does it look like they’re doing? How are they getting along with each other? And with all those flowers around them, does it look like they’ve got enough to eat, and enough to sing about?
So we can dispense with that fear of seeing ourselves as we don’t want to be seen, can’t we?
What if people saw you for the good things you are? And that means you, too: what if you saw yourself in a positive light? Like the smiling sunlight?
If you’re an element of XIX The Sun, which element are you? Which part of the image do you relate to most?
With all the information you’ve gathered from your knowledge of keynote and the Majors, along with your examination of the image on the card, what do you guess is coming up in the week ahead?
Enjoy your XIX The Sun-filled week!
If you’re having trouble bringing your true self to light, you know where to reach me for help.

What is it with groups and religions, anyway? Seems like we just get into big trouble when we try to get social about the sacred.
Can it even be done?
We’ve probably all experienced the itchy fit in our lives (if not, yay! for your gifted journey). You find you’re marching to your sanctified drum while the social sacred is holding services over there. And if you hurry to get over there, they’ve moved on.
Or you totally devote yourself to the social service demands only to wake up one day feeling completely out of communication with the sacred. You’ve lost touch with your sacred self. And you’re suddenly touchy and hyper-sensitive with the group sacred.
We all know the social sacred can happen. And it doesn’t have to be by chance.
Begin by looking within. Get in touch with the sacred inside you. How do you bring it out into your community and put it into service?
Then look around you. How does your community support what’s sacred to you?
Combine the two and, voila!, there’s the social sacred.
And that’s the energy of August’s numbers: communion.
There’s lots of sensitivity at play here. Develop a variety of truly intimate and meaningful relationships this month. If you’ll use your awareness to build sacred connections in a few places, the Universe will provide opportunities for more. If you get stuck – or itchy – it’s time to make some deep new connections.
By the end of the month, you’ll have found your way to the shared sacred. And it will be a smooth fit.
Of course this is something we can sort out together. If you’re stuck in the itchy sweater, all at 6s and 7s with the situation, you know where to find me.

It was just a few months ago that we stood before the King of Swords. His appearance in the Legacy deck is very different than in the Dreaming Way. As I’ve said before, The Dreaming Way Tarot depicts people I expect to see in my daily life, even if they’re a bit exotically dressed or positioned at times.
So, let’s reach into daily life this week. When you look at the image on the King of Swords, who are you reminded of? How old is s/he? How does s/he interact with the world? What happens in emotional situations? What about when s/he’s required to make decisions? How does s/he deal with health issues? With children? Does s/he like to be in charge?
Go back and read the post that told you a little about the King of Swords. Now who do you think of? Is it the same person? If it’s someone different, how would you answer the questions in the last paragraph? Are there any overlaps between the answers? You can begin to find your personal affinity to various decks by comparing what you “know” about the cards with what you “see” in the cards.
Some tarot traditions attach specific appearances to the court cards. Of those, some say the King of Swords will be fair, with blonde or white hair, and in full maturity. Others say his eyes will be dark and so will his hair. The agreement is in the commanding presence. As you identify the Kings of Swords in your life, do you find any patterns of appearance? Age? Gender? Colouring? Dress? Carriage? Presence?
Finally, what’s your relationship with the King of Swords? How do you feel when you meet up with your Kings of Swords? How do you interact? Do you like him or her? What would you emulate? How do your interactions make you feel about yourself?
