Sweet buns and quinquagesima sunday

Hello sweet buns and merry meet :)

How are you all doing? I hope you are all right on this day. It is two things that are happening today and that is quinquagesima sunday and it is a new moon:)

 My husband and I was discussing quinquagesima sunday and we couldn't agree if this was a Christian Celebration or a Pagan Celebration. So we more of less agreed we could share this one :)

 The Church
Today is quinquagesima sunday - In Norwegian we say Fastelavn- which means it is 40 days before Easter and it was 40 days of Lent. (the Sundays is not inclueded)
They celebrated the Lent for four days, quinquagesima sunday, Blue Monday, White Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. Sorry if I didn't get the right names for Tuesday and Wednesday, but I went with my translation.

The Pagan
Back in the good old pagan days this was a spring party - it marked the transition from winter to spring. One of the best kept traditions of the day is the Birch twigs. The Birch twigs was used as a "fertility-tool", The dirt before the plow, trees, animals and the women of the family got to feel the brich twigs.

Other traditions was carneval, wheapon fights, have ritual bonfires and they hooked naked virgins in front of the plow.

The day care centers of today have carneval and February is the big month. They play dress up and it is a lot of princes and princesses + pirates and firemen and police men. And will enjoy their quinquagesima buns :)

I remember my mom used to buy the birch twigs with colorful feathers and I am not quite sure why and when they started to attached feathers to the birch.

Another tradition is we eat buns on this day with whipped cream and strawberry jam and it is sooo good. I used to buy store bought buns for years, but not this year.. I will make my sweet buns and enjoy all that goes with it :)





Love and merry see,

Daily tarotscope for Saturday and Sunday 24th and 25th of February 2017

Hello and merry meet,

How are you in these days? I hope you have a great time:) 
Imbolc has come and gone so the spring over over now... in theory :) In real life we 5-10 cm snow and minus degrees.. But the days is getting longer and it is at least a beginning :)

So over to the daily draw, I use Illuminati tarot by Erik C. Dunne and as always I must tell you take with you what speaks to you and leave the rest :)

Your main cards - 3 of Swords and 10 of Cups - It is time to letting go of all the negative things in your life and you will have a better life after it.
What is it that is doesn't work for you? Is it someone who suck the energy out of you? Do have any drama queens/kings in your life? You have to decide who are important to you and who you want to spend your time with. When you know that you will have better connections with  those who are important to you.

Your help card - 6 of Wands - You will spend time with your "inner circle" people and those who are important to you will stand by you and help you in good and bad times. They are the one you need to focus on

Your hinder cards - 8 of Swords, 6 of Swords and 7 Swords - You may feel that you are tied up and you won't see where to take your steps at first. Becuase you do these changes in your life there will some people who will try to hang on with their bad/negative energy with all cost. It means that it will some turmoil and My best advice is to try to hang in there because it will get better. You will the part whos is winning this battle because it is your life and have to live it your way . Your life=your rules!!

 
 I hope you will enjoy the weekend no matter what your choice may be or not to be :)


Love and merry see

Daily tarotscope for Friday 24th of February 2017

Hello darlings and merry meet,

How are you doing? I hope you are doing all right and you are enjoying the weekend. Yet another month is almost over and the time flies by so fast..

As always remember to take what speaks to you and leave the rest. If nothing speaks to you and it is ok it means that these wasn't for you this time. If these cards speaks to you and if you find them helpful - wonderful.

Your main energy - The Lovers - You feel the love and you have a lot of love to give others, but in all you have to remember not forget to love yourself. If you don't love or care for yourself.. How can you love and care for somone else? In that note you may do some changes that seves you the best.

Your help card- 9 of cups (reversed) - you will get your wishes fullfilled, but it takes a bit longer than you wanted and it can be connected to your main card. When you have work out how you want your life and the neccessay changes you can start to reap your blessings and good fortune.

What can be a hinder - King of Wands (Reversed) - is that it might get to your head and be careful for that. You will go in for your life change with all you have of energy, but don't make it all about you :) Let others to shine with you :)



































Love and merry see,

Daily tarotscope for Thursday 23rd of February 2017

HelloStar Children and merry meet,

How are you doing in these days and I hope yoy are doing great.

Your main energy - The Hermit - You need to take some time off and be alone, just you or alone with your familly.
Your main energy - The Hermit - is teling to take a step back and be a solitary for a while, take your time to "do your homework" and by that I mean go within yourself and all of your answers are there wether you know it or not.
Others will turn to you as their mentor or for some wisdom and they want your words and advice.

Your helping card - The Judgement - you will "wake up" and you see your truth and it will help you to take your choice(s). What happend in the past is in the past and there are not much you can do about it. But you can prevent the history to repeat itself.
This card can also mean literally judgement and you can reconize it and step back because then you will know who to trust or who's your friends

Your hinder card - 4 of Swords - It makes you step down for a minute and it make you take a rest although you don't feel it is neccessary or you don't have the time. Sometimes you will be asked to take a rest.
You may lost this fight, but you haven't lost the war... it is just a small setback. Take this time and recharge your batteries and come fresh, rested, charged and you'll kick ass :)




 

Love and merry see,

Daily tarotscope for Wednesday 22nd of February 2017

Hello Lovely pups and merry meet,

How are you doing on this glorious day? I hope you all are doing great.

Like I always say when it comes to general reading take what speaks to you and leave the rest.
I am using the Illuminati tarot by Erik C.Dunne for this week daily draws.
When I drew todays cardsyou got an additional card on your hinder card.

Your main energy today is - King of Cups - you are in control over your emotions and you are getting your job done while other may loosing their minds.. Like my dad used to say: "For those who have some common sense  - use it". You have to be the one who is walking in the front and be an example of a good leader. You will do great where you have to be the boss.

What will help you - The Fool - is to see this with new eyes and don't be afraid to try new things because this is the only way you will learn.. but hey, you may like it as well ;) You may come over ways that you haven't  thought of before
What will hinder you - 6 of cups & 5 of Pentacles - your past may overshadow what you want or your goals so it can cause some sort of a delay? Can it be that you feel som kind of abandonedment because you feel you could't afford all of the things you wanted. Is this feeling attached to you? Have you worked it through?

 
Love and merry see,

Susann

Daily tarotscope for Tuesday 21st of February 2017

Hello darlings and merry meet,

Welcome back to my daily draw for this lovely Tuesday :)
How are you all doing and I hope you are doing great. Just a week left of this month and o'boy this time went by so fast.

For this reading take what speaks to you and leave the rest
Your main energy for the day is 9 of Pentacles and you can start to enjoy your fruit of labour whether if you work from home or if you have a work space outside from home.Maybe you are a self employed and built you business from nothing or you may be a stay home mon/dad and you have raised your kids to young adults and it is their time to spread their wings

Your helping card is that because you have been patient, taking your time and paid attention to details. Although it haven't always been easy peasy, but you have been hanging on and you have kept on going and you did your best.

Your hinder card can cause some obstacles if you seperate work and personal life. The result may be it can set you some time and there will be a delay. Although it is a postive to show emotions to your work, but if you show too much emotions it can be a little demaging - it will cost more than it taste.
What makes you feel like this? Is it someone else who make you feel like this?

 


This was this daily draw for today and I wish you have a great day, I will back tomorrow with Wednesday daily draw,

Love and merry see,

Susann

Daily tarotscope for Monday 20th of February 2017

Hello Lovely ones and merry meet:)

I'm baaaaaaack and I had to take some time off from the blogging because I felt so burned out after the New Year... I had the YT Pagan challenge (Which I adapted to Blog Pagan Challenge), Ethony's January tarot Challenge - which I took January 2016 in December - Plus lifetime shit happend at top of that. Yeah, Life is great :)

So, How are you doing and I hope you are doing alright in these days. Do see any of you se difference as we entering the spring. The days starting to get longer and sun is starting to warm up the earth so the flowers can come through. I longing for the days and evenings we (my hubby and I) can sit outside and enjoy the sunsets :)

Anywhooooo, I am back and I want to change my blog a little so I want to give you a general small free daily readings so I want to say like I say every single time:  Take with what speaks to you and leave the rest :)

I draw three cards and top card is the main energy of the day, the left one is the help card and the one on the right side is your hinder card. This week I am using the Illuminati tarot by Erik C. Dunne. If some one want a review of this deck please let me know and I will do that for you.

This week starts with a lot of energy for many of you and I noticed it is only Major Arcana cards today. It has a lot energy and maybe a lot emotions.

Your main card for today is The High Priestess and you  goes within to find the answers/wisdom you are seeking. Others may see it as you don't have a opinion and you don't do anything about the matter, but the truth is that you choose to be silent and you trust your intuition. You are thinking about how you want to adress this... It is your matter, your way and your rules how you want to deal with it.

Your help card is the World and it means that you will fullfill your goals, your cycle will come to an end so you can start on your new cycle.
Your hinder card is Judgement and your cycle will be delayed and you are taking more time than you wanted or liked to, but you will get there. Is there a lesson/lessons you haven't learned? Did you take some short cuts that worked against you? Is there something you could do differently?
I leave you herefor now I will be back tomorrow for the Tuesdays draw :)
I hope you have a wonderful day :)

Love and merry see,

Susann

TarotBlogHop - Aces are the beginning of the suits as seeds are the beginning of the plant

Hello beautiful souls

Welcom to my blog and this blogpost is in a Tarot Blog Hop and this is my first entry and that alone goes well with the title, that was given to us by the wonderful Arwen Lynch, don't you think?

PREVIOUS BLOG | MASTER LIST | NEXT BLOG


This month, more correctly today...it has a lot new beginnings.
We need a new beginning because 2016 was rough for many of us for so many reason including myself, but we just have to make the best it with what we got. A lot of great people passed away, a lot horrible things happend in the world. Although it also was a lot of good stuff as well. I believe that 2017 will be our year, I really do.. I have high hopes for this year :)

Today is Imbolc - the beginning of spring - we are in the middle of winter solstice and spring equinox.
It is a beautiful season because nature comes to life and flowers will start to bloom again, the birds will return from the "tropical places" in couple of months, the sun will come through a lot more and the temp will rise accordingly to the months. I am looking forward to the point I can take out our summer furnitures and sit ouside and sunbath and stock up on vitamin D's. Cool drinks at watch the sun set without it getting dark... wonderful.


This is my personal body guard, Nico
I have taken my step into my path as a Pagan and I thought I would go into nature and I would take my tarot deck with me and my personal ceremony, but I changed my mind :) While I was walking Nico, my personal body guard and I was freezing the whole walk...

Here in Kristiansund, Norway, it is 0 C (32 F).. Nothing about that temp reminds me of spring... not with a long shot .. :)The mountains around here still have a lot snow .. brrr

 There is also a a new "beginning" for one of our budgie as well, He has given himself a "cage arrest" because he lost few of his key feathers, the result of that one morning he was about to take his normal flying rout, but he ended straight down to the floor.. The cat had a kick out it, but he didn't see any humour in it... Today he was back to normal again. The cat? Can't be bothered now :)



I put down my 3 card spread: Past - Now - Future

 For my past I need to letting go on what doesn't work for me anymore, I need let go of people who are in my life that is not my friend, fake friends if you like, I must stop caring about what others opinion of me. Let be real, I must do a 180 on this.. I know that won't be easy and I need to do a day at a time.

My present card is about transformation.. I go from the old stage of my life and into my new one and that is terrifying becaus I knew what I had, but I don't know what is coming to me..I know that things will be better and the worst is over already.

My future card is about protecting and cherish the those who are important to me and let them know that I care for them...I haven't always been too good let those I care about know how much they mean to me. One of the goals of this year is to get better at it. Work at it is a key word here :)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I find it difficult to write this tarot spread for myself in public realm like this..Am I the only one? There is one thing I can work on... Write it without revealing anything :)
How public can I go or more likely.. How public do I want to go?


When I signed up up for this blog hop I was thinking that this subject not too difficult and it would fairly quick to write it, man, I had have written it, editing it, sencored myself and rewritten it so many times those last hours.. next blog hop I need to start a day or two earlier so I don't panic and write about anything else :)


Blessed be,
 Susann
