Officially a back to stomach pro, which is great except she kept doing it in her sleep last night and waking herself. She learned stomach to back at 2 weeks because she hated tummy time so much. Now I can't keep her on her back. Diaper changes are becoming difficult.

✨Temperance: Balance, healing through art
✨Two of Pentacles (R): Disorganization
✨Page of Swords: Energetic, restless
The cards suggest you may be feeling frenetic with too many things going on all at once. Take some time out of your day to slow down and step back from your current projects. Take a few deep breaths. Or better yet, meditate. Doing something artistic or creative will also help center you. It doesn’t have to be anything too involved - a simple sketch, dancing around in your living room, or reading your favorite poem will do ✨
Back to the major Arcana... When I first saw @deeeebo_x 's photo submissions for this project, she sent me a picture of her in this white Victorian looking dress. She looked so soft, calm, and graceful, and immediately I knew she was my Temperance. Thank you for looking all angelic, and bringing your soothing energy to this card.💛
Temperance - 14 Temperance is about everything in moderation, balance and trusting in the divine timing of your life. Sometimes patience is the last thing we want to hear in regards to progression, but it is one of the most valuable lessons that life teaches all of us. Your respect for balance and tranquillity is what will help you to achieve and experience fulfilment in your life. Your temperament will be well balanced and you demonstrate good management and balance in your outlook on life.
The angel on the card represents the balance of the divine masculine and feminine, or yin and yang, and the balancing of the energies affecting her beingness, both from the subconscious spiritual realms, in the very earthly tangible plane. Her crown represents the higher realms, and the golden lilies represents the physical earth. The triangle represents, God, love, spirit, and consciousness. The the gold cup is cold, and the water in the vase is hot. She mixes the water to find an equilibrium, and avoid extremes and maintain calmness.
Astrologically, this card is linked to Sagittarius, the teacher of truth, enthusiasm, tolerance and beauty. With this energy you learn to keep calm in situations of great stress or anxiety, and you never let them see you sweat, and you ground yourself so you can put things into perspective when things get hectic.*

Temperance & the Cosmic Egg 🔮
Just last night I said to a friend, “I think I might make a rule for myself that I’m not doing anything social on weeknights, at least for a couple of weeks.” I’ve been feeling distracted & pulled in many directions. Social events start to feel burdensome because I feel like my time should be spent on the couple of things I’m working on & trying to drive forward (tarot being one of them). Temperance is a perfect card to pull right now, a reminder that balance is necessary to find calm & meaning in our lives. The things I’m working on all require me to really tap into myself, & unfortunately working all day & then going out at night is not always conducive to tapping into spirit. Who knew?
The Cosmic Egg: I’ve never pulled this before today. Yesterday I also decided I would start a new healthy routine by waking up early (not my fav), meditating and/or do yoga, then do a tarot post. The day I start this routine I pull this card which represents “unfolding the cosmic consciousness”. When this energy is tapped into we are free of our self-doubt & limiting thoughts. This card represents the 7th chakra, residing in the top of our head. With these two cards together I saw immediate messages for myself:
-Yes, I do need to chill on being a social butterfly & buckle down on my projects.
-I’m right about feeling like I need to seriously incorporate meditation & yoga more than I currently am.
-Balance & inner peace come from doing the work. Routine is hard for me but setting one up that encourages the healthiest mental & emotional state is crucial.
-Temperance will help me to truly connect to this cosmic energy.
-My instincts are correct. (Yours are too.)

Wednesday cosmic love....and to pull a fav DLP quote out of my mental deck....
‘examine what you tolerate’ .
It’s grand advice for any day, but with the wacko planetary disco going on right now .... a lot of our personal discontent could very well be surfacing, and instead of the normal route of pointing fingers toward the shimmering (or glaring) result maybe it’s time to turn our pointers inward and at the crux of creation. .
Playing nice perpetuates irresponsibility (also DLP).
A lot of times we allow bad, or inconsistent, or inconsiderate, or whatever, behavior in ourselves and/or in others to just get the wheels moving...or to get our immediate needs met...out of love...out of fear...out of respect...out of exhaustion...a call for cooperation...or just out of a long held route & routine .
We all do it in some form or fashion, yet, when the bad behavior turns tail and bites us, well, we forget that we were the ones that gave it enough head way to do so
We really do teach people how to treat us through both our action and our inaction .
With interpersonal relations (and with customer service) the small red flags or in the big postulating cosmic smack downs of other people’s opinions, if we feel something is wrong, or inauthentic, or could be shifted....say something. Don’t hold it as your truth, or ‘just the way it is’ .
Kindness goes a long way here, but, remember that kindness starts from within and it’s really the catalyst for the deep self respect that elevates everything .
“We now stand at a crossroads of two very different visions of humanity’s future that compete for the hearts and minds of citizens around the world... How should we respond? With a vision of Equality & Justice & Freedom & a Multiracial Democracy built on the premise that all people are created equal and endowed by our Creator” ~ President Barack Obama // Today, I watched President Obama’s speech - twice - and took some time to watch the Netflix special “Bobby Kennedy for President.” I am mentally and emotionally full and exhausted at the same time. To watch two men who gave their lives to “bend the arc of the world towards justice” is inspirational, motivating and humbling. As a person of faith, I believe the most noble calling is to give ones life in pursuit of the common good. To pursue education for every child, collective bargaining and protecting the rights of workers, progressive taxation that keeps the rich wealthy but encourages them to give back to help others in their community...to create a more just world for all people...to empower women...to make the the world more equitable by constraining excessive capitalism...to continue the struggle for civil rights. The list could go on. // As I am taking a season to listen and learn all I can about the local, national and global community, I am coming to understand the highest responsibility of every citizen - to help move the ball forward. To fight to make this world better than we found it. To push back against anyone who refuses the celebrate the differences and diversity that make us great. Grateful for leaders like BHO and RFK who provide broad shoulders for us to stand. They each share two common traits: (1) Humility and (2) Selflessness. Isn’t this the true definition of leadership? #justice#wisdom#courage#temperance#leadership @barackobama #NMAL2018#obama#nelsonmandela
L’association de ces deux cartes vient vous inviter à reconsidérer une relation triangulaire de votre vie… Si, si! Il y en a bien une! C’est la relation qui unit la Terre, votre Coeur et vous-même! Que vous inspire cette idée?
Ce coeur d’Amour est doux et tendre. Il donne envie de s’y lover. Il est rempli d’Amour maternel tel que celui que la Terre nous propose.
Tempérance est là pour nous rappeler que la relation à Gaïa est une relation hors du temps tel que nous l’envisageons aujourd’hui. C’est typiquement une relation qui ne se plie devant aucun contrôle: la Terre sait ce dont elle a besoin et quand. Elle sait aussi ce qu’elle a à offrir et quand. Rien ne sert de la brusquer ou de la forcer: elle ne peut donner le meilleur d’elle-même que lorsqu’elle est prête. Et alors, elle surpasse tous les espoirs. (winkwink à Monsanto entre autres.) Pour (r)établir ce lien à la Terre, Tempérance apporte son soutien, belle allégorie de l’Ange Gardien qu’elle est. Invitant à chercher l’équilibre entre les opposés, il suffit d’y faire appel pour que les réponses nous parviennent. Mais la vraie question est celle-ci aujourd’hui: quelle est votre lien à la Terre Mèrea jourd’hui? Vous satisfait-il? Comment aimeriez-vous qu’il soit? Une fois que votre coeur a donné sa réponse, faites appel aux forces invisibles pour vous guider sur ce chemin.
Dans le commentaire accompagnant la carte, il y a cette idée que je tente d’exprimer quand je parle d’éveil et de conscience et qui sort à tous les coups chaotiquement au milieu d’une discussion entre amis… et pourtant c’est ici exprimé avec tant de clarté et de beauté par Alana Fairchild:
“Votre vrai moi n’a rien à voir avec votre personnalité, vos accomplissements, vos succès ou vos échecs. (...) L’essence de vous-même est votre “âme”, votre “lumière”, et elle n’a ni commencement, ni fin. (...) C’est en exprimant votre vérité que vous créerez quelque chose de valable. Soyez vrai.”
18th July, 2018 🌟 🌟Our cards today are the 5 of swords, Temperance, and Moon cycles. 🌟 🌟The Moon is currently coursing through the sign of Libra. This is a time when working in harmony with others is most beneficial for us. This is also a time when we most feel the need to be appreciated and wanted. Too much focus can be laid on the 'self'. 🌟 🌟The 5 of swords brings us a reminder to be more aware of our actions and attitude towards others. Sometimes, just for a little thrill, we may feel tempted to say and do things that can put others down. Winning and being right becomes too important. We do all we can to cater to our ego. 🌟 🌟The cards are guiding us today to work in harmony with others and focus on creating peace and avoiding chaos where possible. Don't fight for the sake of fighting. Do not end up making enemies when the situation can be resolved with a little compassion and understanding. Don't end up losing a friend just because you want to prove a point. 🌟 🌟Another thing to keep in mind is to be patient. Just because things are not moving at the pace you want them to, don't end up doing something that can lead to unpleasant consequences. 🌟 🌟It is also time to put an argument or a bitter experience behind. Let go and heal. It is okay if someone got the better of you and moved ahead. You don't have to remain imprisoned to that experience. Accept what is and focus on the possibilities that are available for you now. A difficult experience you are going through is your opportunity to learn a major life lesson. Move through it with courage and grace. 🌟 🌟If some of you are feeling too sensitive, restless, or feeling the need to detach and disconnect, honor it. Our moods cannot be trusted at this time. Tomorrow or a week down the road, you may feel differently about things. Don't overreact and keep impulses in check. 🌟

In #TheGoddessTarot, card XIV is #Balance and represented by #Yemana, #Goddess of the Ocean. In a more traditional deck, it’s #Temperance. As a message from my inner parent, this card symbolizes harmony and union. It is balance and it is the coming together of many influences, some that go together and some that seemingly never would. This card brings to mind some of the work I’ve done with @stephanie_gailing towards my deepest truth and my #mantra for 2018: diversity is my true nature. @megansees calls this card “the integration of opposites.” 🙌🏼💙 #tftwstarotchallenge#tarot#tarotchallenge#julytarotchallenge
Older work: Eye of Temperance and Eye of Faithful (Peacock God Feathers) fiber art / mixed media on canvas 10" x 8" x 1 1/2" (2008) by Michael Sylvan Robinson. Detail image of sone of the original pieces of this ten year project, The Peacock God, with Eye of Faithful with its title an odd, "off," exception as it reads "Faithful" rather than "faithfulness" or "faith" as the norm of the other pieces. This one holds lots of potency: What does it mean to be faithful? Faithfulness in relationships, to oneself, to values, institutions and community? Faithful against a world that devalues such honor and integrity? And what about the harms of misplaced faithfulness that is a kind of codependent trust/care/love of a wrongsized commitment to an unhealthy situation.

Checking in on your Tuesday with TEMPERANCE + EXPRESS YOUR LOVE // What would you commit yourself to today if you knew a few months from now you would receive a huge return on your investment? This cancer season may have opened old wounds to show you what you’re “lacking”, but are you lacking? Or did you just need those insecurities to come to the surface so you can make damn sure you know who you are? Because once these waves roll out and the sun shines in Leo, you better tell those who doubted you to come with that same energy 💅🏼 You are the master of your universe, you know the perfect blend to create your life, you just need to put your love into it. It doesn’t matter who agrees with you, or who praises you or even who talks shit about you. When you create with your heart you draw in your tribe. If you feel like you haven’t found them yet, focus on YOU. Focus on LOVE. Because at the end of the day that’s all it’s about ✌🏼💜 #tarottuesday#temperance#expressyourlove#doreenvirtue#cancerseason#leoseason
