Colours that Crayola Has Never Seen

“My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white. My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I’m told they look orange in the night. My hair is reddish blondish brown, but its silver when its wet, and all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet.”
― Shel Silverstein

 

Unlimited Potential
We may reach for stars that do not yet exist
or seek mountains yet to emerge from the sea.
We contain multitudes of possibilities
Some which have never expressed before.
What colours are your dreams?
What is their texture?
We each possess unspoken languages
with ideas unuttered
Do we reach for our shadows to create?
Do we seek someone to sew them on for us
or do we let them fly free.
Draw with your many-hued pen
and express
a new being never seen before.
Blessings, G

Tarot Post – Page of Pentacles

 

Page of Pentacles (Earth of Earth)

 

Page of PentaclesPage of Pentacles by G A Rosenberg

 

The seed is planted.
Youth believes it can become
almost anything.

 

I found a giant seed
so colourful, its texture
smooth here, rough there
I study it fascinated
I will nurture the plant
that grows, learning how
to tend to its needs
as I learn to tend to mine
I will embody its strength
and will to manifest
as we both become what we may
a seed sprouting
into a mighty presence.

 

Note: As with all of the court cards, tho I may use the male pronoun, the card can easily refer to either male or female.

 

The suit of Pentacles refers to the element of Earth and of practical matters such as money and partnerships both of a business nature and of the home. They can also represent nature, the Earth itself as well as our bodies. Pages (or Princesses as they are called in many decks) represent the grounding or emergence of the energy involved. The Page of Pentacles encounters his own nature, both sensual and as part of the world. He studies the disk, open to all its lessons and wishing to learn everything he can to prepare himself for everything the world has to offer. At this stage the possibilities are endless for anyone truly open and there is awareness that the more preparation and knowledge (whether it is experiential, intuitive or learned) he has the more of his potential he can realize. He senses his own endless potential and seed-like nature. He dreams of what may come from his studies and encounters and knows that he can manifest anything of which he dreams.

The Trigram of the Mountain is doubled. There is an incredible stillness to Mountains yet all form of activity may be happening below the surface and eventually life may manifest abundantly upon it. This hexagram speaks a lot about learning one’s own nature before having greater involvement with the outside world. It is an influence of meditation and study. It also speaks of seeing everything new as if it were the first time it was encountered. When we see things in this way then we free ourselves from preconceptions and are more open to the present moment.

 

When the Page of Pentacles turns up in a reading, we may have started a new course of study or apprenticeship that we are excited about. It is a time of learning and of growth. It may also be a time when we need to still ourselves and discover new potentials within. It is a time of taking the first steps towards realizing the plans and dreams that we’ve carried within.The Page of Pentacles may represent a young person, somewhat dreamy who has a particular area that they wish to learn more about. The Page of Pentacles may also mean positive news on the financial front. It may also mean that the time has come to start actualizing the potential that we’ve held in check.

 

The reversed Page of Pentacles may mean that we feel blocked in the manifestation of our plans. It may mean that we have not yet put forth the work needed to actualize our dreams. It can also refer to to much of a focus on short term enjoyment of things rather than making future plans. The Page of Pentacles can also be telling us that we have completed our course of study and now we are ready for a break.

Quotes of the Day – June 10 2012

“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”
― T.S. Eliot

 

“Healing for me is being able to sit next to the butcher and say ‘Yes, I’m sitting next to the butcher now,’ instead of saying ‘there is no butcher’.” 
― Tori Amos

 

 

Two very different quotes from T. S. Eliot and Tori Amos feels very appropriate to my evening. Mr. Eliot’s quote speaks of endings and beginnings and their interrelationship. After all every moment is the ending out our lives up to now and the beginning of what is to come.  As I have stated elsewhere I love crossroads and the thought that NOW is ever a crossroads becomes comforting to me. Always a new doorway beckons and the new universe next door is within reach. But then to bring in probably my third cliche in one paragraph (I don’t mind repeating cliches, most of them would not have become so without containing a modicum of wisdom) I get reminded that in order to truly begin anew I have to leave something behind.

Tori’s quote speaks of healing and naming our wounds for what they are. Acknowledging the butcher or the insecurities that keep us frozen in old patterns unable to move. Naming my wounds brings me one step closer to moving on. Mine of the evening are insecurity and lassitude. I need to give both up to go through the crossroads and find what I will.
Blessings, G

 

Play your cards right

the irony
of asking an outsider for insight…

Psyche by G A Rosenberg

Quote of the Day – May 23 2012

“Ninety-nine percent of who you are is invisible and untouchable”
— R Buckminster Fuller

We are the ninety-nine percent? Ah wouldn’t that be an interesting essay. Seeing the 99% of us that we can’t touch rebelling against the 1% on the surface that seems to make all the decisions. Occupy our existence. YES.
Of course not even our psyches occur in a vacuum. Still how much of ourselves even surface to the point of awareness? Meditation elicits and integrates more for sure tho at any point we contain multitudes we’ll never meet, the would have been us’s and the could of been us’s .
Still what amazing raw material to recreate ourselves from… If there is a quality that we admire or that we crave we can know or at least surmise that it exists somewhere inside of us and evoke it. What awesome potential, knowing that each day we can become, or perhaps be becoming..

Daily Becoming
I choose qualities needed
Essence Awakened.

Blessings, G
