January 6th marks the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas. It's Epiphany, or Three Kings Day, celebrated as the day the Three Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem. Some cultures celebrate Christmas on January 6.
It's interesting that two of the three gifts brought by the Wise Men, frankincense and myrrh, are valued as sacred and helpful in many magickal traditions. Frankincense and myrrh are used both separately and together as incense and oils to help increase spiritual attunement and create sacred space.
The word "Epiphany" refers to a sudden insight or a startling moment of clarity. For me, Epiphany is a personal holiday. As a tarot reader it is my job to create those "aha moments" for people.
May we all be open to the wisdom of the Universe, and may we have the knowledge we need at the time we need it!
A Psychic Gallery is an opportunity to do readings in a group. This is a great way for people to get together to share insight and energy.
On December 30th I did my second on-line Psychic Gallery, and was once again really happen with the results.
On January 6th at 2 pm I will be returning to the home of Pearl Rauberts in Loxahatchee, FL for an in-person Psychic Gallery.
Pearl Rauberts holds many sacred and metaphysical events at her home - everything from Reiki to drumming to walking the labyrinth.
My New Year Gallery at Pearl's will be a very special event. It is an opportunity to gather in sacred space and receive messages from the Universe.
You can perform this simple spread with tarot or with any set of oracle cards. Use it for the New Year, or for birthdays and anniversaries.
Pull one card at random to represent the year that has passed. It might tell you something you have learned, or something you need to release. It might describe the theme or the flavor of the past year.
Now pull a card to give you some insight into the new year. This card might describe the theme of this new year, or a major event that might occur. It might give you some wisdom or advice for the coming year, or suggest what your primary focus for the year will be.
Attune Magazine is a digital metaphysical magazine conceived, edited and published by Mary Nale. According to Mary, Attune Magazine was created as a way for all of the wonderful souls from the metaphysical community to share ideas and spread enlightenment. The concept for the magazine came to Mary Nale in a dream. All the details for creating the magazine were given to her in this dream, including the inspiration to name the magazine "Attune".
Attune has been published quarterly since the end of 2010. Attune always contains interesting articles from people in the tarot and metaphysical community.
You can read the magazine on-line or download it to your computer. Mary says she is working on a mobile device download as well.
The digital age has prompted a lot of amateur creative projects. Suddenly anyone can make CDs, books, movies, TV shows and magazines. As with only the best homebrew projects, each issue of Attune has gotten better and better. The January 2013 is nothing short of brilliant. The graphics are crisp, the layout is perfect and the content is of the same high quality that Mary Nale has required from the beginning.
It's clear that in 2013 Attune Magazine will be one of the best metaphysical periodicals available. Oh, and did I mention the price? Attune Magazine is absolutely free!
Mary Nale and her magazine are a great inspiration for me as I begin my own homebrew project, an internet TV show calledChristiana's Psychic Café. If I can make my show better each time in the same way that Mary has grown her magazine I will be very pleased and proud!
Your One-Card Reading this week is the King of Swords. The King of Swords represents the highest level of intelligence, truth and integrity. Traditionally this card may represent a man who demonstrates these qualities.
Often this card indicates an opportunity to develop and use these characteristics in your own life. This card encourages you to take a stand for integrity, to speak your truth and to act with logic. It is time to be a leader, to communicate wisely for the sake of what is right. Be the King of the truth!
