“At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come and press its face against mine. Breathe into me. Close the language-door and open the love-window. The moon won't use the door, only the window.”
Introduction: Judgment can be a card about jumping to
conclusions, decisions and judgments. which are too hastily made. If you
are prone to such things, this is a clear signal to slow down and give
things more thought and to give people "more chances." This can be a
real time of spiritual awakening.
General: In general, if you are the one tending to
jump to conclusions, you can put a stop to it. If others are making
these kinds of decisions about you or about someone you care for, there
is really very little you can do, apart from realizing that it's their
problem, not yours.
Work: Your efforts are being watched. This is an
important time to put in extra effort paying attention to detail. The
news ultimately is likely to be good. If you've been trying hard and
doing your best, your efforts are very likely to pay off. If you've been
slacking off, now is the time to get with the program, before any
permanent damage is done to your career.
Love: If you're already in a relationship, this can
be a make-or-break period. This is a time to get very, very clear about
what you want out of life and out of your relationships, and then take
steps to make it come about. If you are seeking love a new
relationship may come about in the near future, but you may need to
take steps to make sure that you aren't leaping to conclusions
(positive or negative) about your new love and/or vice versa. Slow and
steady wins the race.
Finances: Money and contracts will be headed your
way now. Things should be on a very important, positive upswing. Don't
speed or violate the law now, or you could end up paying a hefty
ticket/insurance rates. Caution will pay off.
Health: This is an important time to let go of the
past and any wrongs that you perceive were done to you, particularly if
you are dealing with chronic medical issues. Letting go of your need
to be right will go a long way toward helping you to feel better.
Besides, if someone did you wrong, then they did wrong, and you don't
have to stay angry at them to prove that they were wrong. Think
Spirituality: You may find yourself exploring ideas
and spiritual directions that you never thought would appeal to you in
the slightest. Furthermore, you may find more truth and wisdom there
than you ever dreamed. Be open to new ideas and new experiences. They
can benefit you in ways that you can't imagine. And you'll never know
unless you try.
“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your
house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow
leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can
grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots
hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your
heart, far better things will take their place.”
“This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A
joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an
unexpected visitor...Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest
honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the
door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”
May denote a
tendency toward narrow-mindedness, in the business world however,
denotes a positive situation, a driving force,a rapidly rising
market. Seeing a bull with a distorted head means stubbornness and
'bullheadedness'. It generally symbolizes vitality and masculine
strength. Bulls were worshipped in many religions especially as
symbols of potency and for their horns which resemble the lunar
crescent. The bull Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac. (April 21
to May 21) an earth sign. Those born under the sign are said to be
clumsy earthbound, tenacious, and powerful. This sign is ruled by the
planet Venus which connects the love goddess to the bull.
Discovered in the early 1900s by a
man named W. Grey Walter, Delta Waves are associated with the very
deepest levels of sleep, relaxation, and peace of mind.
at a frequency range of 0-4Hz (the slowest of all the brainwaves),
Delta Waves are what cause sleep to be restorative, which allow the
person to wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. It is also
important for the healing process –through the release of various
hormones during sleep-, and is what controls many of the body’s
unconscious functions, like the heartbeat, digestion, breathing, and
many other things we don’t often think about, but actually need. As
such, it is also associated with loss of consciousness and physical
Benefits of Delta Waves
Deep sleep and healing – the main benefit of Delta Waves
is allowing the person to get a good night’s sleep, which allows the
body to heal itself and rest and revitalize the mind. Without it, a
person will wake up feeling lethargic and weak instead of recharged. In
some cases, Delta Waves even help slow down the aging process, through
the production of hormones like DHEA and melatonin, which affects the
skin, bodily functions, and overall well-being. It also helps produce
natural human growth hormone by the pituitary gland, which also helps
restore the body (and for athletes and people who love to workout, reap
the benefits of the day’s efforts), as well as improve the immune system
to further protect the body from sickness and illness.
Regular bodily functions – Delta Waves control all of the
body’s activities that we are not conscious of. Proper heartbeat, proper
kidney functioning, proper liver functioning, proper breathing, proper
digestion, etc. Having a good dose of Delta Waves makes sure that
everything is in-sync and of good working order. And this is important.
Because while we can stop ourselves from tripping over something and
avoiding injury, we have no control of how kidneys go and function. So
we are relying on our body to simply function well.
Increase in empathy and intuition – a good production of
Delta Waves allows the person to care more and empathize more with
people, generally leading to being more receptive to their problems and
being more willing and fulfilled to help them. It also helps to further
accept and understand other people’s emotions, relate to their problems,
and think of ways to help. Included in this is an increase in one’s
intuition, which in scientific terms is the body’s natural response to
certain events or activities. Intuition allows the person to tap into
the body’s natural capabilities and the mind’s expectations, thus
allowing for better decision making when it comes to “trusting your
Those are the main benefits of Delta Waves. But like with
anything, too much can be a disadvantage as well. Having too much Delta
Waves can cause people to lose focus; remember, Delta Waves are
associated with relaxation and sleep, so having too much may cause the
person to have difficulty retaining information or focusing on the task
at hand. This is commonly associated with various learning disabilities
and even ADHD in people and kids.
Introduction: Strength indicates the importance of mind
over matter, and reminds you to focus on what you do want rather than
what you don't want in your life. Its main point is that you have the
ability to harness your thoughts and to use them for your - and
everyone else's - highest good. Not only do you have the ability; you
have the responsibility. So conquer your fears, control your impulses,
and never lose patience with yourself or what you are doing.
General: It's important now for you to make time to
meditate and contemplate and spend some time alone even if you are in a
committed relationship and have nineteen children! Do not allow yourself
to spend time in preoccupation and fear. Outward things will be going
all right but what is of the most paramount importance is keeping your
head on straight.
Work: Work should be going well. If you're looking
for work, know that you have the wherewithal and the skillset to find
it. If you're already employed, and there is room for upward mobility,
don't hesitate to negotiate for what you're worth. You might be
surprised at the positive reception that you get. If there's not room
for a raise or promotion where you are now, give serious thought to
finding something where there is this possibility, or consider what it
would take for you to strike out on your own business-wise. You may have
more options than you typically think possible.
Love: Love should be going very well - if you're
committed, this is very likely to be a strong relationship that is
mutually supportive and beneficial. If you're looking for someone, this
is a much better-than-average time to meet people. You should be in a
self-confident phase, so get out and mingle. You might be very
pleasantly surprised by how things work out.
Finances: Money should be in a positive cycle. Be
sure to save some, even if it's only a little, and even if you've been
doing without for quite some time and feel a desperate need to treat
yourself or the people that you care about. You may actually be getting
ready to purchase a home or other big-ticket item. Don't borrow more
than you can comfortably repay, of course.
Health: Your health and vitality should be strong
and robust now. This is a great time to correct bad habits if you need
to do so in order to protect your health. Starting with small goals like
a daily ten-minute walk could very well lead you to where you want to
be, which is even healthier and stronger than you're feeling right now.
Yes, it can get better!
Spirituality: This is likely to be a very spiritual
time for you even if you don't have anything close to a religious
belief. To be truly strong, you must pay attention to and develop each
leg of the triad we are made from: body, mind, and spirit. Be sure you
are spending time on all three. That's hardest to do when things are
difficult; if you receive this card when you are at a low point, know
that things are very likely to be looking up soon. This card is a
reminder that you are strong - probably stronger than you think.
The stag with
horns represents rejuvenation, rebirth, and the passage of time. The
deer's antlers represent the sun's rays. In China, the deer
symbolizes wealth and filial piety. In heraldry, the deer represents
gentleness and mildness and long life. In Christianity, the deer
striving to reach a spring denotes the desire of purification through
baptism. The term 'stag' refers to a gentlemen attending a social
party without a female at his side, such as a 'stag party'.

“Listen to your being. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a
still, small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you
are a little silent you will start feeling your way. Be the person you
are. Never try to be another, and you will become mature. Maturity is
accepting the responsibility of being oneself, whatsoever the cost.
Risking all to be oneself, that's what maturity is all about.”
“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots.
Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky,
and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth.
Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes,
simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In
fact, it is always in proportion. That's its balance.”

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.”
Introduction: The Chariot indicates a lot of energy but
not free-for-all energy. It's directed, controlled, and has a goal in
mind. When this card appears you are likely to be fairly clear on what
your hopes and dreams involve and what you are willing to do to get
General: In general this card points to
determination and ambition, getting things done, and testing and proving
what you've got. This is a sign that you should move forward with
whatever you have in mind (and in your heart) and give it your best
shot. Remember, though, that you'll need to use both your intellect and
your heart, in order to be truly successful.
Work: In terms of work, it's important not to let
small issues get blown out of proportion in your mind. There may be
someone who is involved with your work who is (inadvertently or not)
working against you. Don't let this get you down, either. Just do the
best you can and don't waste time on worrying about the way others
perceive your efforts. If you're right (and you probably are) everyone
will see this in the end anyway. You should be feeling very "charged up
and ready to go."
Love: In terms of love, it's possible that you are
tempted to go too far too fast and/or that someone is pressuring you
that way. Either way, communicate as best you can about your boundaries
and preferences and be honest with yourself about the possibilities. If
you aren't interested in a relationship with someone who clearly wants
one with you then the kindest thing you can possibly do is to let them
know that you just aren't interested. The short term angst this may
cause will benefit everyone in the long run.
Finances: Finances in general may be going very
well. You could be looking into purchasing something to do with
transportation - a car, plane tickets to somewhere you have always
wanted to go - anything of that nature. Prioritize paying down your
debts. You can do it now if you are disciplined.
Health: On the whole your vitality is very strong
now and you should have quite a lot of "get up and go." This is an
excellent time to begin or to increase a fitness plan. You may be able
to make more progress than you ever thought possible.
Spirituality: You may travel (even locally) to
places that can help increase your spiritual awareness and you will be
in a mode where you learn a lot quite quickly about spiritual matters.
Don't be afraid to attend seminars and talks on spiritual subjects that
seem unfamiliar to you or outside your usual mode of learning. You can
benefit in ways that you cannot currently imagine if you do try these
new things. This can be a very profound time for you.
We came out from the deep
To learn to love, to learn how to live
We came out from the deep
To avoid the mistake we made
That's why we are here !
We came out from the deep
To help and understand, but not to kill
It takes many lives till we succeed
To clear the debts of many hundres years
That's why we are here !
Introduction: When the Star appears, you are likely
to find yourself feeling rather inspired. You will be feeling more
hopeful about the future, and more confident that your needs - whether
these are emotional or financial needs or both - will be met. This is
also a very spiritual card. You may find yourself for a time feeling at
one with all of creation. Savor it.
General: This card is a definite good omen. You are
probably already inclined to be thinking positively; this is a time to
do so specifically. What are the changes that you would like to make or
see in your life? Make a list. You can accomplish nearly anything that
you set out to do now. Think big.
Work: Work should be going very well now. If you're
not happy in your current position, this is a time when you can expect
new opportunities to come flying into your life if you are open to
them. Be ready for them. Dust off your resume, read tips and tactics
about making positive career changes, and when opportunity knocks, be
prepared to answer.
Love: This is an excellent time to meet someone new
if you are in the market for a new relationship. If you're ready for
love, get out and mingle. A new relationship could happen at any time.
If you're already committed, your relationship may move to new, higher,
more fulfilling levels.
Finances: Again, this is a very powerful positive
omen. You will do better financially than you imagined. This is a great
time to take risks (only those you can afford,) to ask for more money
at your job, and to sell things. You'll have everything that you
need, more than likely, and then some. Enjoy it.
Health: This should be a fabulous time, health wise.
If you are waiting on test results of some kind, they are likely to be
very good results. You'll be calm, and inspired. Take good care of
Spirituality: You are so in touch with your
spirituality now that this is a great time for you to reach out to
others, and to share your wisdom and your joy. Your efforts in doing so
will be repaid many times over. The world needs your light and your
happiness. Make a point to let it shine.
