 “Once You Had Gold”

Once you had gold,
Once you had silver,
Then came the rains
Out of the blue.
Ever and always.
Always and ever.
Time gave both darkness and
dreams to you.

Now you can see
Spring becomes autumn,
Leaves become gold
Falling from view.
Ever and always.
Always and ever.
No-one can promise a dream come true,
Time gave both darkness and
dreams to you.

What is the dark;
Shadows around you,
Why not take heart
In the new day?
Ever and always.
Always and ever.
No-one can promise a dream for you,
Time gave both darkness and
dreams to you.

Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning – The World

The World 

*
*
*

Introduction: The World can signify that you are figuratively feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders, which is not an easy place to be. It’s an excellent time to review how well you do at “asking for help” when you need it. Remember you don’t have to do everything on your own.

General: This can often be a card of completion. You’ve worked hard, and you are almost to the “finish line” in some way. Don’t quit now that you’re almost finished! You’re almost definitely in need of some well deserved rest and relaxation; don’t be afraid to take it. You are getting closer to “who you really are,” at your deepest levels.

Work: In terms of work, there’s a very good chance that you are working far too hard for far too little recognition and money. It’s important if this is the case to “blow your own horn” a little, to make sure that the powers that be don’t “accidentally” overlook your many positive accomplishments. You may need to look outside your own country for helpful information in how the work you do is done elsewhere – this could lead to some very interesting realizations.

Love: If you travel during this time period, and if you are “in the market” for a relationship, you may well meet someone while you are away. Conversely, if you have been in a long-term committed relationship for some time, you are likely to find it rising to “new and better heights.” Things in the love department should be quite interesting, in a good way. Don’t be afraid to mingle or talk to strangers. 

Finances: If money has been a bit stagnant for you – this is a good sign that this “blockage” will soon break and you’ll find yourself “flush” once again. Don’t go mad with spending, when it breaks, though. This is an important time to begin saving and protecting yourself so that if hard times come again, that you’ll be ore prepared. But for now, you should be able to rest easier about money.

Health: Your health should be on the upswing. You may be helped by finding a healer who works with something besides traditional Western Medicine. This is not to replace medical therapy, but to work in concert with it. Your doctor may not be happy about this, if he tells you, for example, that it’s not possible for you to study yoga and that it would “get in the way” of his treatment of your arthritis, in that case, you may be best served by locating a different medical doctor as well. Follow your “instincts” about what is best for your health. Seek out mentors with more information than you have. Educate as much as you can. Advocate for yourself.

Spirituality: You are likely to have several clear flashes of important spiritual insights during this time. Keep a notebook handy and record these. Share and discuss them with others (even if your only outlet for that is online). We are all on a spiritual journey, and your insights are likely to be valuable for others as well.

“Evening Falls…”

When the evening falls
And the daylight is fading,
From within me calls
Could it be I am sleeping?
For a moment I stray,
Then it holds me completely
Close to home – I cannot say
Close to home feeling so far away

As I walk the room there before me a shadow
From another world, where no other can follow
Carry me to my own, to where I can cross over
Close to home – I cannot say
Close to home feeling so far away

Forever searching; never right,
I am lost in oceans of night.
Forever hoping I can find memories
Those memories I left behind

Even though I leave will I go on believing
That this time is real – am I lost in this feeling?
Like a child passing through,
Never knowing the reason
I am home – I know the way
I am home – feeling oh, so far away

Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning – The Sun

*

The Sun

*
*
*

Introduction: When the Sun card shows for you, it’s a sign that soon you are likely to find yourself feeling more free than you have in a while – maybe years. This is a great time to take a vacation and to experience different things. The Sun is about vitality, freedom, joy, and self-expression.

General: Things in general are very likely to be going very well for you. However, even though finances are likely to be in good shape when this card appears, that does not mean that you should lose focus on what is truly important in life, and money is not very high on that list. This is a good time to socialize, to meet new people, and to get out and about.

Work: If you’re looking for a new job, this card can signify that it’s right around the corner for you. It’s important, no matter what happens, to keep your ego under control and to share any credit for good work with those who work with you even if you did all or nearly all of the work! On the whole, your work is stable and moving toward new opportunities and improvements.

Love: This is a time, if you are in a committed relationship, when both you and your beloved may be in more than usual need of space. This is not a time to be whiny, clingy, or needy. If you’re looking for love – it definitely could be on the horizon for you. 

Finances: Money is likely to be much better than usual. Still, hold on to some for unexpected expenses. If you’ve been waiting on a decision to be made by others it means you won’t have to wait much longer and that the decision is very likely to be in your favor.

Health:  Your health and feelings of well-being should be at a high point. This is a great time to take some time off if you can and just enjoy life. This is partly mental as well as physical – if you look back you are likely to find that your attitude has been more positive of late too. This can directly affect how well your body works for you. Figure out what you’ve been doing right and build upon it!

Spirituality: This is a time when you are very likely to be able to see the truth with a capital “T” about life; which is that there is a great deal of beauty, joy and happiness to be found in this life, if you are looking hard enough and in the right places. Spread this very important message. This is a great time to try different spiritual approaches on for size to see if any of them work for  you.

Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning – Temperance

Introduction: Temperance is a card about balance, in many ways, and relationships of all kinds. Friendships, family, romantic partnerships, and work partnerships all need your attention. This is also a card about alchemy or mixing and matching. You may have to try several approaches to things before you find what is truly right for you.

General: Although in general all your relationships are likely to be going quite well, you may need to look at your deeper personal issues and see if or how these are standing in your way. And if they are, how to work through them and integrate them. The idea now is to do what it takes to find balance, in yourself, in your relationships, and with your goals and aspirations.

Work: Aim high, but don’t have expectations of yourself or others that you or they can’t possibly meet. Do your work with patience and with stamina and it will pay off for you in the long run. Your accomplishments will not be overlooked.

Love: Often, before you can really have peace and wisdom in your relationships, you need to have peace within yourself. Look at what you feel guilty about, mistakes that you feel you’ve made in your past. Then forgive yourself, and let them go. It’s the only way you can truly make progress.

Finances: There is likely to be a good balance between what is going out and what is coming in. However, if you need to increase or collect your earnings, you are going to have to ask for what you deserve. Have courage and pride, and you will not fail.

Health: Balance and moderation is the key. Are you eating well, sleeping well, playing and working enough, getting enough exercise? Look at where you might be out of balance and then remedy this. Moderation is definitely the way to good health right now.

Spirituality: This is an important time to meditate and to listen to your inner voice for guidance, and if you need help, to ask for it. Both from your higher self and from others.

“T.N.T. For The Brain”

Smell your skin
Feel your breath
You on my side
I couldn’t resist
I hope I’ll understand some day
What’s the meaning of this crazy game
It is real and pure
T.N.T. for the brain
If there’s no pain
Rules are still the same
I’m with you, just lead me
I’m ready to play
T.N.T. for the brain
Don’t be scared and have no fear
I will show you what it means
If there’s no pain
Rules are still the same
I’m with you, just lead me
I’m ready to play
T.N.T. for the brain
What you feel is insane
It is love and not a game
T.N.T. for the brain
