Life in its trials and triumphs, with a little help from the Angels
It sure has been a while since I've posted - computer crashes, busy life, personal health issues, wow!

But I'm back now, ready to help you.

Today's Tarot card is the Fool...what does that mean?  Check my blog to find out!
What a great card to teach us today!  The Ten of Pentacles is wonderful, positive card, depicting the rewards of a life well lived: finanical security, happiness, the wisdom of age and experience.   It tells us we have much to be grateful for in life and that more good is coming.  This a true, regardless of whatever challenges we face.  When we are in the midst of trials, being thankful for the good in our lives helps us to get through them more peacefully.  When we are in the midst of flow, being thankful helps to keep our channels wide open to receive our blessings.  What are you grateful for today?
The lesson for today comes from the Page of Cups.  Pages are young, but this page is probably the youngest in spirit, being a bit dreamy and intuitive.  This page often refers to birth - of a child, a relationship, a great idea.  The Page of Cups is much like a child at play - lost in a world of his own creation, utterly delighted and at home there.  This Page reminds us to take a break now and then from the high-speed techno-savvy world and let our inner child lead us.  Dream a bit, indulge in playtime, let your imagination run wild.  Don't worry - the world of instant connection will still be there when you come back.  But for today, connect with your hopeful innermost you! 
I seem to have lost my posts.  Odd, but I'll take it as a sign that they weren't needed. 

Tarot card for today::  3 Swords.
The 3 Swords is about pain, depicting 3 swords piercing a heart.  If you think 'heartbreak,' you wouldn't be far off the mark.  In this case, the heart is rent by those swords - representing not only challenge and hardship, but also logic, judgment, and those airy mental qualities.  The 3 Swords reminds us not only that pain will come into our life, but that we can survive it.  How?  Well, the swords here are both the cause and the cure: pain becomes suffering when we think of it in negative ways.  The converse is true as well, though.  When we can look past the discomfort to its cause - and the lesson it offers -- the discomfort become manageable instead of overwhelming.  Not only that, but as we learn the lesson it is here to teach us, the pain or challenge has fulfilled its purpose and moves from our experience more quickly.

I hope your pains are all tiny ones.
