Last night I dreamed that while traveling with my daughter I noticed the clouds were glowing with a bright red rims, like they were on fire. My thought was “it looks like the sky is rimmed with fire”. It was so beautiful that I wanted to take a photo but was unable to due to the fact that I was driving. Eventually the sky darkened and in the dream it was implied that a big storm was coming. So i asked my daughter if she wanted to shelter at her friends’ (some kid’s she’d been on a playing with) place or my mermaid friends’ place. She told me that she wanted to go to the mermaids’ place so we drove over to their apartment and hung out with the adult mermaid couple.
I decided to use the Voyager Tarot to read on this. I used a customized tarot spread based on a typical three card spread.
Card 1: What is around/about in the dream. XIV Art
Card 2: What is within/beneath the surface of the dream. Woman of Wands : Sensor
Card 3: What does the dream reveal. Inverted Nine of Wands: Integrity
Bottom Card: What Grounds me Man of Crystals : Inventor
Crowning Card: What Crowns me Two of Crystals : Equanimity
The energy around the dream is my creative expression and artistry: the travel, the adventure, the beautiful red sky glowing with fire and drive. What is within the dream is my sensitivity and intuition, knowing from feeling the energy: hence as soon as the sky darkened i knew a storm was coming. What the dream reveals is that i do not have solid foundation which gives my structure integrity, parts of me are wobbly. The Nine of Wands traditionally implies defenses, thus I consider this card to also show that i am letting go of strictness and being more flexible and receptive of what is to come. Instead of forcing myself to weather out the storm I asked my daughter where she’d like to stay and we traveled to my mermaid friends’ place. I felt safer with them than on my own. What grounds me is my inventive personality that is always composing new and innovative solutions to the problems i see: during the dream i was not once “worried”, i just resolved our travel “issues” one by one with ease, everything flowed, and i could easily resolve things that came up. What crowns me is awareness and objectivity, not being distracted by the jumble of confusion and staying clear like a crystal. Whether it be fire in the sky or a coming storm. What is best for me is to stay clear-headed and non-judgemental. Prior to seeing the fire rimmed sky we encountered many different characters as we traveled through RPG-style side quests, my daughter made many new friends who were all different, and we became good friends with a mermaid couple.
I put “fire rimmed sky” in the search bar and Xiuhcoatl came up, a fire serpent and weapon of destruction.
Fire, burning and darting through the sky as the storm surges
We prepare for the coming deluge
Fire, burning, and darting through the sky, as the storm surges
We prepare for the coming deluge
My previous dreams had a lot of water, and now fire is starting to mix in … i am moving from transmutation to transformation.
And I am so tired tonight, on top of caring for hearth and home i have been attending inspirational webinars (and doing self-analysis/reflection) 10-20 hrs a week, using card divination to aid with self reflection and then blogging about everything. Fortunately i have less work hours, which balances out all my “extracurricular” work. Today i went out on a “break” (aka errands that had piled up) with different decks in different locations and layouts in my home. I did come back to finish journaling and interpreting them all. I am also working on new income related business ventures and projects 😀 I have a coach/business partner for one of them. I think of Synchronicity as i recollect how I randomly set up a dinner play date at her place the night of the full moon, right after I had finished a webinar series called “Manifest 5k”. I know and have been told (by intuitive readers) that I work best with external drive. I am going to own up to that aspect of myself and Also find a coach for my intuitive art project.
