Magic Monday is where I pick three Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer and you pick, based on your gut instinct which ever card you feel most drawn too. Here are the cards for Magic Monday, October 10th (Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canucks btw!). One card on each page. (see page numeration at the bottom of the post!)
Mountain ~ Strength: “The massiveness of the mountain in this image – bearing the blankets of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect from its body – evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamored by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never be truly conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.
The current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable fo becoming. The solidness of our resolve will be clearly communicated when you model yourself after the towering immensity of a mountain, impenetrable and inscrutable. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.”*

Sometimes we can’t make up our minds. Sometimes we make up our minds and other people change them for us; then we end up looking back and wishing that we had stuck to our guns and not changed our minds. Sometimes we don’t know what we want and we feel directionless, drifting.
What do you want to create? It sounds like such a simple question, but yet, it is one of the hardest question for many people to answer. What do you want to create? Can you describe it in detail? Can you feel it? See it? Smell, taste and touch it with you mind? Are you focusing on it daily? Hourly? Moment by moment? When you do focus on it, is it in anticipation as you feel it into being? Or is it doubtfully, knowing somewhere in your being that it’s probably never going to happen… a pipe dream?
It makes a huge difference. How you feel about it. HUGE difference.
Like happening or not happening difference. So it’s good to get that sorted out once and for all.
What do you want?
Are you willing to stand your ground for it? Be solid in your belief that you are worth it? Embrace it wholeheartedly as your birthright? Nothing and no one can stand in your way?
When you are solid in your focus, yet reaching for the stars. You are planted firmly in the now, fully grounded on the Earth, yet your spirit soars up to the Universe. When you are stable and steady and strong.
Then, as you soar to new heights, your dreams will surround you. Worthy you. Confident you. Beautiful, unlimited, Divine: YOU.
