Tarot Pull – 8.10.18 – Elebba/Eleguá/Eleggua

Happy Friday, friends, spristas, and family! Today is the day before the New Moon, which is in Leo and it’s a Super New Moon. There is also a partial Solar Eclipse happening, and this all goes down tomorrow early in the morning at 5:57 AM. As a Scorpio, I’m taking my time to rest and just prepare for all of the shit that is about to go down tomorrow to essentially be the final chapter of what we have been experiencing. I’m ready for a restart in so many ways, and know I am in control along with my Higher Power to usher in that energy. Remember, there are legit six planets in retrograde currently (Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Mercury, and now Uranus as of this week) so if you have been feeling all over the place emotionally, don’t think that it’s just because of you being crazy. The Universe and the cosmos are literally all over the place right now. If you have been seeing old things/issues come to the surface, and you’ve been trying to start anew or make amends to things, this is the perfect time to make sure that you prepare intentions for this new phase in your life and what you want to see happening. Lessons are wrapping up, and you have the ability to create and manifest what you want to see actually happening in your life, and leave all that other mess at the door.

The New Moon in Leo will truly make you focus on what makes you happy, and allow you to do that final work in reflection on what routines, habits, and actions you need to take in order to function at your personal best. It’s truly a time to let go of the past, and look towards the future, remembering that everything can change at the drop of a dime if you make the efforts to do such with a positive mindset. Remember that post on motivation I had? This is an optimal time to finishing figuring out what doors you want to close, and what roads you want to open towards your path to happiness, success, and your own personal truth. Things will start to become even more clearer to you than ever before, so take heed as to what your intuition is leading you to, and how you feel in any and all situations. Since this is a Super New Moon, it’s gonna be wild, so hold onto your socks!

Today’s tarot pull is SUPER timely, and I find it interesting that it’s what I pulled today because of what is happening around me personally, and happening with the Universe tomorrow. Today, I pulled the card Elebba/Eleggua.

nE7IIM3+TtqnrxP7MKm8Bg

“Eleggua is the patron of all doors and of all roads. Therefore the magical keys to open the most inviolable locks and the permits to walk the different paths that humanity will travel belong to him.”

In the title, you may notice that I referenced this card many a ways. Dependent upon the background that one may understand the Orishas, Elebba/Eleggua/Eleguá may be spelled differently, but it all means the same thing. He is the one that is the door opener, and the one that opens new paths towards what is designed for you. Most people who practice Santería, Candomblé, or Palo Mayombe believe him to be the “master of force”, and you must have his approval before moving down the path that you seek. He is the protector of villages and cities and towns, and his image is to be placed behind or close to the entrance of the house. If you think about it, your comings in and goings out have to be blessed in order to manifest the dreams and truth that you want.

This morning during my dice divination, I rolled a 3 and a 6. This just shows me that I’m right where the energy needs to be, as I continue pulling info from my companion booklet.

“He is made up of the soil of three or seven crossroads, water from three or seven rivers, rain collected three or seven times during the third or seventh month or in three or seven months of the year…etc.” I think that this three that I rolled shows that he’s present in this reading and telling me and you all that the roads are here to be walked down. I think of some personal doors that I am opening and working on, and how motivated I’ve been feeling for a change or for something new and exciting to be a part of my path. This just soothes my spirit, knowing that everything that is happening right now is coming in divine timing. I also think of what doors I’ve been working on closing lately, and how that has been helping me to be a better person and feel in a much better space.

Have you gotten a new job lately? Have you been feeling a push towards tackling a new venture? Have you been given a job promotion, or found a new passion in doing something? This could be because the energies around you are supporting you in feeling this. Don’t sleep on this energy – go with it, but don’t tire yourself out from it. Be patient with yourself – it’s all coming together.

The meaning of this card is related to jobs, mainly. “There will be progress in one’s work or job. Abundant productivity. Profitable advertising campaign; your message will be well-received. Tempting and practicable offers. Vitality.”

This is super exciting for me to pull and show you all today because it means that there is something coming that is amazing. The work that you have been putting in is coming to pass, and the Universe is going to give you great karma back if you have been giving the best of yourself to it.

Personally, I know that I have been staying motivated with writing here as much as possible, trying to stay on top of other goals that I have (and I also just finished this super awesome goals worksheet from my girlfriend, Destiny, that helped me to focus on getting in the gym and holding myself accountable for it – you should check her current site out and her new site dropping next month!!!). I have also just thinking about how all of what I’m doing and the energy I’m putting out is being received, first for myself, and then in light of what I want to see manifest in my life even further. As an empath, I’m always thinking of others, and I want to continue to be and shed that light for others, so I do this to help you all get closer towards your personal immaculate design.

This is also perfect timing because lots of doors that were open in my life that weren’t healthy for me are closing, and I’m seeing some of the mental emotional changes that I have been having. If you don’t know, I have had a tumultuous relationship with alcohol for the past …probably 10 years, and I’ve been getting the help that I need to make sure that I stay sober. It hasn’t been an easy road, but I’ve been taking the steps to realize that every day is a step towards a healthy life, and I’m working towards building even stronger relationships in my sobriety. I’m grateful for the work I have done and even though every day isn’t perfect, I’m sober and it’s progress, not perfection.

I know that the sacrifices that I am making and the intentions I am setting to lead a healthier, happier, more honest life are going to be momentous for me and others around me, and I send so much loving energy to you all as we transition into these new astrological moments coming forward.

Are you seeing some of your past doors closing? Are you ensuring that you’re doing work to keep them closed, and thanking yourself for working daily towards seeing what you want to see manifest itself? Remember that you are human and that you are not perfect – it’s all a process, and it all will come to pass if you allow it to. All you can do is just do your best on a regular basis in order to welcome that positivity and that energy. Allow yourself to be supported. Be patient.

I’m so ready for tomorrow – it feels like it’ll be the final exam for me before I start to see my new life completely manifesting itself the way I want to see it happening. Today, I plan on doing some vision setting. I would suggest you take some time to do this today or before Sunday. My birthday is a little less than two and a half months away, and I think this is the perfect time to envision what I want to see happening within the last couple of months before I turn 29. If I spend my time focusing my energy towards that today, who knows what will actually happen during that timeframe? You can never get too early a head start on your own spiritual awakening and your own graciousness coming to pass. I feel like the death of an old Gangsta Gurry has happened, and a new G is being reborn again. And I’m fucking with that energy.

I want you to stay hydrated today, stay positive, stay aligned, and be thankful for what you have accomplished thus far. Focus on what you can be grateful for today, and what has changed this year for you for the positive. There are so many little things you can be grateful for, and the more you welcome that energy into your life the more you’ll be able to manifest the life that you want.

Shine on, my friends.

Asé. Amen.

Boundary Setting.

Something led me today to talk about boundaries, and resetting them in order to make yourself put yourself in a better place wholly. A quote that I came across that resonated with me came from something I ran across while searching information about boundary setting.

“Setting boundaries is a way of caring for myself. It doesn’t make me mean, selfish, or uncaring (just) because I don’t do things your way. I care about me too.”Christine Morgan

Today, I decided to do a video instead because a friend of mine said he wanted to see me back in front of a camera. I haven’t been in front of a camera in a while, and I wanted to open myself up to being vulnerable and trying this out instead of a general blog post. This is the first time I’ve done this in quite some time, so bear with me and all of my flubs. Practice, not perfection.

Have you been setting boundaries in your life with your loved ones and your partners? What does that look like? Hopefully, today’s message can help touch you in a way to reset what those boundaries look like, and make sure that you’re setting them with the utmost positive intentions.

Remember. Saying ‘no’ is an answer in itself.

Asé. Amen.

Desire

Today’s focus is the topic of desire. This website has been a long time coming for me, and it’s something I’ve desired for quite some time. If you know me personally, you know that I have been wanting to be a writer for years, and have been consistently tweeting recently about different vibes and different foci that I am giving my energy to on a daily basis. I have desired to have more of a free life, allowing my creativity to speak for itself, but finding lots of blockages. But before I even get there, let me get to the meat of today’s word.

The word desire is so powerful. I know personally when I think of the word desire, I think of it in a sexual content, or something very passionate. It’s a very intense word, and it’s an exciting word in nature. It’s this sense of longing for something or someone, even if it’s just a fantasy that you want to be fulfilled. Having desires that don’t fit the norm are okay. Society has told us that sometimes, our desires are not allowed to be fulfilled because of extenuating circumstances that limit our ability to have what we truly want.

What if you took the time to forget about what limitations there are, and manifested what you truly wanted? What if you took your desires on a date, and fully immersed yourself in them, without listening to your negative self talk? Where would that leave you? I want you to think about what you desire right now.

Personally, right now I desire to have more peace in my life and I have a desire to continually push myself to work on my craft and what is important to me. That voice in the back of my head can constantly tell me that ‘I’m not good enough’ or ‘there are others that are doing or have what you want’, but does that really mean that I have to succumb to those voices? I want you to reflect on something that is important to you, and the blockages that have hindered you from gaining what you want. If you allowed those pieces of negative energy to eradicate themselves from your spirit, would you feel closer to gaining what you truly want? 

When you have a desire, you want to make sure that it’s a healthy one. I remember at one point, I had a desire to just leave work and get drunk, mainly because I was stressed out and wanted to let go. Those desires would manifest themselves into me finding myself in precarious positions that weren’t healthy for me. Be intentional about the desires that you have, and make sure that they are serving your highest purpose, and your highest good. Yes, we all want more money, love, or something else, but is the process in which we are manifesting that healthy? Looking at others’ possessions and desiring what they want is not the way to inherently receive what is meant for you.

Start from the base level of why you want the object of your desire, and whether or not it is serving a higher purpose, or whether it’s something that is a temporary fix. Remember, you have a lifetime of things that you can want, and these things can come quickly, or may take time to materialize. Don’t freak out if it doesn’t come to you immediately – if you stay faithful and stay grounded in your ‘why’, you can never go wrong when manifesting what you truly want. If the desire is going to make you a happier person, go for it. If it’s something that is temporarily going to fix a situation, consider whether or not it is the most beneficial for you in the moment. Remember, desires aren’t you being selfish in any way – even the most luxurious things you desire are able to be acquired if the intention behind them is positive and rooted in true form to your spirit. Your spirit is resilient, and has the ability to manifest what it wants as long as the work is put into gaining what you want. Keep your eyes on the prize, because it’s so easy to get derailed by things that do not truly matter in the grand scheme of things. When you set your eyes on something that you want, your endeavors and desires can be met if they are stamped towards your ultimate glory, and not instant gratification.

You are able to give as much as you are able to receive. That is what true balance in the world is. When you learn this, you can teach others that they’re able to do the same. The Universe is happy to share its energy with us, and that energy never can die. When you decide to honor your desires, you give yourself permission to be one with the Universe and receive support for your growth and happiness.

Today, I want you take some time to think of your desires today. I want to thank Kyle Gray, author of “Raise Your Vibration” for giving me the following questions to share with you all. Answer the following questions in your spare time and reflect.

  1. What is it you want in life?
  2. How will it make you feel when those desires are met?
  3. What can you do to create that feeling now?
  4. How can you express that emotion?

Also, set this intention for your day.

“Desire is a powerful emotion. I have recognized that I have needs and I am finally honoring them. It’s okay for me to want some things from life because the truth is there’s enough for everyone. In receiving, I bring balance to the world. In manifesting, I show others that they can manifest too. I am grateful to be held by the Universe as it meets my needs for the highest good of all.”

Now, I wouldn’t be a real ass bitch if I didn’t answer my own questions that I’ve shared with you guys. So, I’ll go first with sharing my answers to my questions.

In life, I want to find a healthy balance between my spiritual, my mental, and my physical. I desire to have an abundance of spiritual wealth, and am grateful for all that I have brought to the forefront. I desire to have a balance with my work life and creative life, and when those desires are met, I will feel more fulfilled. I will feel as though I am making headway with my own true passions and life’s purpose. To create that feeling right now, I am writing this post and sharing my own personal feelings of desire with the Universe and anyone who reads this. This post is my way of expressing these emotions, and the more that I continually write and put my true feelings out into the Universe, the more it will bless me and others around me. The Ancestors are willing to support me through all of this, and I trust and have faith that every little inch matters. 

Now, I encourage you to go have a date with your desires today, and really focus on the intention that was set earlier. Remember to ground yourself before really thinking about what you want, and take some time to meditate if need be before actually writing out your desires or thinking of them and what will make your soul feel fulfilled.

Asé.
