Card of the day

King of Swords - Enchanted Tarot

Be fair in making decisions

His helmet is crowned with wings of maturity

Day dreams and forgetfulness, also excellent problem solving abilities

An authority on many subjects

The charioteer taking a break

Ruled by air this card is about thinking, preparing, seeking truth in a calm deliberate manner

The scales of life have to  be adjusted constantly to stay balanced

A calm demeanor perhaps concealing inner turmoil

Ten of Discs - Motherpeace Tarot


( This goes kind of deep, because this is an important and unique card)


This Motherpeace card shows a circle of protectors witnessing and guarding a birth. They are the midwives to new life. 


Achievement, or the goal of achievement


Mercury in Virgo


The Chakras are involved, arranged like the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. 


The end of the material plane the beginning of ascent into the spiritual. There is no place else to go.


The ten of discs is called on to do what no other small card is called upon to do. From its position at the bottom of the physical realm, the cosmos, it has to somehow form a link with the secrets of creation, of manifestation. Then actually reincarnate fresh and new, then start new at the very top of the tarot cycle. In other words it must regenerate The World you live in and the World in you. 


All the forces and energies of the cards, all the sephiroth and paths have settled like the tired sediment of the universe. A wealth of experience is poisoning the body, the spirit. 


You must be healed because there is simply nothing else to do. 


Regenerate your world.

Card of the day

Five of cups - Motherpeace Tarot

Learning from your losses

Turn your back on the past, look to the future

Hold on to what you have, no matter how little it is

No reason to feel hopeless

Don't be so focused on the spilled cups you miss the full ones

The ability to move on after a period of sorrow

Will it rain forever? No.

Cups are ruled by water, the situation is fluid.

===========

A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding, and the trooper started to lecture the farmer about his speed and, in general, 

began to throw his weight around to try to make the farmer uncomfortable.

Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket, and as he was doing that he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head.

The farmer said, "Having some problems with circle flies there, are ya?"

The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said "Well yeah, if that's what they are I never heard of circle flies."

So the farmer says, "Well, circle flies are common on farms. 

See, they're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."

The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the ticket. 

Then after a minute he stops and says, "Hey, wait a minute, are you trying to call me a horse's ass?"

The farmer says, "Oh no, Officer. I have too much respect for law enforcement and police officers to even think about calling you a horse's ass."

The trooper says, "Well, that's a good thing," and goes back to writing the ticket.

After a long pause, the farmer says, "Hard to fool them flies though."

During a service at an old synagogue in Eastern Europe, when a particular prayer was said, half the congregants stood up and half remained sitting. The half that was seated started yelling at those standing to sit down, and the ones standing yelled at the ones sitting to stand up. 

The new rabbi, learned as he was in the Law and commentaries, didn't know what to do. His congregation suggested that he consult a housebound 98-year-old man who was one of the original founders of their shul. The rabbi hoped the elderly man would be able to tell him what the actual tradition was, so he went to the nursing home with a representative of each faction of the congregation.

The one whose followers stood during the prayer asked the old man, "Is the tradition to stand during this prayer?"

The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition."

The one whose followers sat said, "Then the tradition is to sit!"

The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition."

Then the rabbi said to the old man, "But the congregants fight all the time, yelling at each other about whether they should sit or stand."

The old man interrupted, exclaiming, "THAT is the tradition!"

=========

Farmer Mike lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. 

The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day.

So one day Farmer Mike called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens."

"What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff.

"I don't care, just do something about those crazy drivers!" 

So the next day he had the county workers go out and erected a sign that said: SLOW-SCHOOL CROSSING

Three days later Farmer Mike called the sheriff and said, "You've got to do something about these drivers. 

The `school crossing' sign seems to make them go even faster."

So, again, the sheriff sends out the county workers and they put up a new sign: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY

That really sped them up. So Farmer Mike called and called and called every day for three weeks. 

Finally, he asked the sheriff, "Your signs are doing no good. Can I put up my own sign?" 

The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign." 

He was going to let the Farmer Mike do just about anything in order to get him to stop calling everyday to complain.

The sheriff got no more calls from Farmer Mike. 

Three weeks later, curiosity got the best of the sheriff and he decided to give Farmer Mike a call. 

"How's the problem with those drivers. Did you put up your sign?"

"Oh, I sure did. And not one chicken has been killed since then. I've got to go. I'm very busy." He hung up the phone.

The sheriff was really curious now and he thought to himself, "I'd better go out there and take a look at that sign... 

it might be something that WE could use to slow down drivers..." 

So the sheriff drove out to Farmer Mike's house, and his jaw dropped the moment he saw the sign. It was spray-painted on a sheet of wood:

NUDIST COLONY

Card of the day


Priestess of Cups - Motherpeace Tarot

Depicted as a Mermaid, symbol of  Adaptability · Awareness · Discretion · Divination · Emotions · Innocence · Non-conformity · Psychic Aptitude

You are protected by love, warmth, caring

Pure of heart

Water element, fluid situation

The Mermaid is half woman, half fish, bridging the gap between the conscious mortal world and the unconscious, almost magical, sea of emotions.

Any issues regarding feelings are coming to the fore.

Connected to the sign of Scorpio, this card indicates being highly intuitive, self-contained, determined. 

Be on guard to prevent a desire to help from becoming too fervent.

Sometimes what you think you see is just your own reflection in a mirror.

Card of the day


Eight of Swords - Motherpeace Tarot


Perhaps you've boxed yourself in and not left yourself many options


Could you be holding yourself back?


Try to see things as they really are


Although you are restricted you are not as hemmed in as it might appear at first glance


Eight is the number of death (illusions) and regeneration


You may be in a situation where you are "damned if you do and damned if you don't"


Generous, clever ...you need to apply wisdom and not waste your talents on small unworthy objects


Don't concentrate on unimportant details

And munching the rice,

He's slurping the soda,

And he lets out a roar

If you open the door.

And it gives me a scare

To know he's in there--

That Polary Bear

In our Fridgitydaire.”

The owner of a large factory decided to make a surprise visit and check up on his staff. Walking though the plant, he noticed a young man leaning lazily against a post.

"Just how much are you being paid a week?" said the owner angrily.

"Around three hundred bucks," replied the young man.

Taking out a fold of bills from his wallet, the owner counted out $300, slapped the money into the boy's hands, and said "Here's a week's pay - now get out and don't come back!"

Without a word the young man turned around and quickly left the building. 

Turning to one of the supervisors, the owner said "How long has that lazy bum been working here anyway?"

"He doesn't work here," said the supervisor. "He was just here to deliver a pizza!"

============

For some people "normal" is like their country of origin. They speak it, think it, and live it. It is easy for them to be normal, to lead a normal life, get a normal job, have normal relationships.

But for others, normal is like a far distant land, something they can read about or recognize, but impossible to find. I was one of those others. Somewhere over the rainbow was normal, but you can't get there from here.

Only when we remake ourselves can we remake the world.

“While browsing in a second-hand bookshop one day, George Bernard Shaw was amused to find a copy of one of his own works which he himself had inscribed for a friend: "To ----, with esteem, George Bernard Shaw."

He immediately purchased the book and returned it to the friend with a second inscription: "With renewed esteem, George Bernard Shaw.”

Two men were sitting next to each other at a bar.

After a while, one guy looks at the other and says, "I can't help but think, from overhearing you, that you're from Ireland."

The other guy responds proudly, "Yes, that I am!"

The first guy says, "So am I! And where about from Ireland might you be?"

The other guy answers, "I'm from Galway, I am."

The first guy responds, "Sure and begora, and so am I! And what street did you live on in Galway?"

The other guy says, "A lovely little area it was, I lived on Walsh Street in the old central part of town."

The first guy says, "Faith, it's a small world, so did I! And to what school would you have been going?"

The other guy answers, "Well now, I went to St. Peter's of course."

The first guy gets really excited, and says, "And so did I. Tell me, what year did you graduate?"

The other guy answers, "Well, now, I graduated in 1974."

The first guy exclaims, "The Good Lord must be smiling down upon us! I can hardly believe our good luck at winding up in the same bar tonight. Can you believe it, I graduated from St. Peter's in 1974 my own self."

About this time, another guy walks into the bar, sits down, and orders a beer.

The bartender walks over shaking his head & mutters, "It's going to be a long night tonight, the O'Brien twins are drunk again."

=============

(*_*) - Tired Dog

An old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard. 

I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home. 

He followed me into the house, down the hall, and fell asleep on the couch. 

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. 

The next day he was back, resumed his position on the couch and slept for an hour. 

This continued for several weeks. 

Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: "Every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap." 

The next day he arrived with a different note pinned to his collar: "He lives in a home with four children -- he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?"

“I notice that you use plain, simple language, short words and brief sentences. That is the way to write English―it is the modern way and the best way. Stick to it; don't let fluff and flowers and verbosity creep in. When you catch an adjective, kill it. No, I don't mean utterly, but kill most of them―then the rest will be valuable. They weaken when they are close together. They give strength when they are wide apart. An adjective habit, or a wordy, diffuse, flowery habit, once fastened upon a person, is as hard to get rid of as any other vice.” 

― Mark Twain

=============

A guy goes to a psychiatrist. "Doc, I keep having these alternating, recurring dreams. First I'm a teepee; then I'm a wigwam; then I'm a teepee; then I'm a wigwam. It's driving me crazy. What's wrong with me?" The doctor replies: "It's very simple. You're two tents."

Friday the 13th: 13 Facts About the Unluckiest Day in the Calendar

Friday the 13th is considered to be the unluckiest day in the Gregorian Calendar. For many people, it is a day to take caution, stay indoors, avoid black cats, ladders and mirrors, and reach out for their good luck charms for protection.

1. It's Unclear Why It Is Feared

Very little is known about the origins of the day's notoriety. Some historians believe that the superstitions surrounding it arose in the late 19th century. The first documented mention of the day can be found in a biography of Italian composer Gioachino Rossini, who died on a Friday 13th. A 1907 book, Friday the Thirteenth, by American businessman Thomas Lawson may have further perpetuated the superstition.

Others believe that the myth has Biblical origins. Jesus was crucified on a Friday and there were 13 guests at the Last Supper the night before his crucifiction.

All about Friday

Another account suggests that the day has been associated with misfortune since 1307, when on a Friday the 13th, the French king gave the orders to arrest hundreds of Knights Templar.

History of Friday the 13th

2. Yet, the Fear is Very Real

So real that one scientific name wasn't enough. The fear of Friday the 13th is also called friggatriskaidekaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia. Now say that 10 times really fast!

Friggatriskaidekaphobia comes from Frigg, the Norse goddess of wisdom after whom Friday is named, and the Greek words triskaideka, meaning 13, and phobia, meaning fear. Paraskevidekatriaphobia is also derived from Greek: paraskevĂ­ translates as Friday, and dekatria is another way of saying 13.

3. ..And Very Common!

Experts say that friggatriskaidekaphobia affects millions of people and estimate that businesses, especially airlines suffer from severe losses on Friday the 13th.

Triskaidekaphobia, or the fear of the number 13 is even more widespread. So much so that many high rise buildings, hotels and hospitals skip the 13th floor and many airports do not have gates numbered 13. In many parts of the world, having 13 people at the dinner table is considered bad luck.

4. Friday the 13th Can Come in Threes

A bit of a bad news for all of you who suffer from friggatriskaidekaphobia - all years will have at least one Friday the 13th. The good news is that there cannot be more than three Friday the 13ths in any given calendar year. The longest one can go without seeing a Friday the 13th is 14 months.

When is the next Friday the 13th?

5. Blame Sunday

For a month to have a Friday the 13th, the month must begin on a Sunday. 

6. Friday the 13th Patterns Repeat in the Calendar

There is a calendaric method to the madness of Friday the 13th. Whenever a common year begins on a Thursday, the months of February, March and November will have a Friday the 13th. This will happen 11 times in the 21st century.

The February-March-November pattern repeats in a 28 year cycle. In the 21st century, the cycle began in 2009. In 2015, 6 years later, Friday the 13th will occur in February, March and November. This won't happen for 11 more years until 2026 and we'll have to wait again for 11 years until 2037 to see the February, March and November trilogy.

This pattern will repeat itself starting 2043, 6 years after 2037.

7. Even During Leap Years

Three Friday the 13ths can occur in a leap year as well. If January 1 of a leap year falls on a Sunday, the months of January, April and July will each have a Friday the 13th.

In the 20th century, this happened in 1928, 1956 and 1984. And in the 21st century this will happen four times in 2012, 2040, 2068, 2096. Notice something interesting? Yes, it is the 28 year cycle again!

8. Fittingly Alfred Hitchcock Was Born on the 13th

The master of suspense was born on August 13, 1899 - so Friday, August 13, 1999 would have been his 100th birthday. He made his directorial debut in 1922 with a movie called Number 13. Unfortunately, the film was doomed from the start and never got off the ground due to financial troubles.

Other celebrities and well-known personalities born on a Friday the 13th include actors Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, novelist and playwright, Samuel Beckett and former President of Cuba, Fidel Castro.

9. It's an Unlucky Day Only For Some

Friday the 13th is not universally seen as a day of misery. For example, in Italy, Friday the 17th and not Friday the 13th is considered to be a day that brings bad luck. In fact, the number 13 is considered to be a lucky number!

In many Spanish speaking countries and in Greece, Tuesday the 13th is seen as a day of misfortune.

10. And Research Suggests That It May Not be Unlucky After All

There is very little evidence to show that Friday the 13th is indeed an unlucky day. Many studies have shown that Friday the 13th has little or no effect on events like accidents, hospital visits and natural disasters.

11. The Day Inspired One of the Highest Grossing Film Series

The commercially successful Friday the 13th enterprise includes 12 horror movies, a television series and several books that focus on curses and superstitions. Even though the films and the television series consistently received negative reviews from critics, they have a huge following. The mask worn by the key character in the films, Jason Voorhees, is one of the most known images in popular culture.

12. And a Country to Raise Safety and Accident Awareness

Since 1995, Finland has dedicated one Friday the 13th in a year to observe National Accident Day. The day aims to raise awareness about safety - on the roads, at home and at the workplace.

13. An Asteroid Will Safely Fly By the Earth in 2029

On a Friday the 13th! Friday, April the 13th, 2029 to be exact. When 99942 Apophis was discovered in 2004, it was thought to have a small chance of colliding with Earth. But you can rest easy because since then, scientists have revised their findings which show that there is absolutely no risk of the asteroid impacting the Earth or the Moon.

"You should date a girl who reads.

Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes, who has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she has found the book she wants. You see that weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a secondhand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow and worn.

My third favorite joke:

A duck and a chicken were standing by the side of the road. The duck started to cross the road but the chicken stopped him.

"Don't do it," the chicken said, "You'll never hear the end of it."

Card of the day

Knight of Swords - Gemstone Tarot

Symbolized by Carnelian. A stabilizing stone, Carnelian restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity. It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy and motivates for success. Carnelian is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind.

Speed, perhaps haste.

On a Quest, a quest for knowledge and information.

Connected with Gemini, he only pauses for an instant to get what he needs.

Good time to apply your mental energies on acquiring information, seeking solutions, developing plans.
Evaluating results will come later.

Chuck was driving his car home one day when one of the tires went flat.  He stopped at a garage and found an attendant that would plug the leak and pump up the tire. 

"That will be $50," said the attendant when he was finished.

"That's too much for pumping up my tire!" cried Chuck. "Last time I had this problem I was only charged ten bucks!"

The attendant  replied, "Inflation, my good man, inflation!"
