The Tree speaks of a time of suspension and waiting. Is this a period of inaction? Or is a period where we are accomplishing some of our most deepest and highest actions that will propel us into new levels and beyond the horizons where unlimited potential manifests? It is a time of completion and action. One that we surrender and reminded that here surrender is not our giving away our power and authority to another. Rather we are reclaiming that power, our energy by letting go the inner conflicts, releasing attachments and transforming ourselves in the process. From one side of a veil it can be perceived that we no long have control of our lives yet when we step onto the other side, parting those veils, we are regaining our balance and
equilibrium. We are re-grounding ourselves and within that inner journey we are taking conscious, mindful actions through and with meditation and prayer. Clarity and epiphanies abound through the precious gifts we discover and rediscover as the Tree speaks: Enlightenment, Inspiration and Unconditional Love.
That very Unconditional Love is our seed and fruit that enables us to continue to integrate all aspects of ourselves. The material and spiritual do come
together and are not separate save how we perceive them to be. Give Love freely to all that you are and that will reflect outwardly to Our Earth and all upon this world. This does not mean we bring into our energy and lives that which is toxic nor that which is no longer beneficial. It does mean that by our integrating all aspects of ourselves we are reawakening the gifts and abilities which empower us to make bridges here in this life. We become apart of the solution making viable, loving change together for when we bridge ourselves we are Opening that door where we empower ourselves to walk and life responsibly, genuinely and lovingly. We use our personal power confidently as a wise, nurturing, healer and provider. A true Co-Creator of Love. We align ourselves with the Heart of Creation where we can, do and will feel the Heartbeat of Our Beloved Earth and Our Self all together as one.
Let us make that choice to surrender, to let go of where we were and step into, leap into the air or divine in and immerse ourselves into that Divine River of Conscious, Unconditional Love.
|12 - the Tree
You have the opportunity to release attachments and surrender to the
flow. You are no longer in charge of your life. It isn't a time to
resist, for everything is out of your control. Give it up. Your world
may feel like it's been turned upside down. You can fight this reversal
— you can go into it kicking and screaming — or you can surrender with
grace and take it as an opportunity to see your life from a different
perspective. It is a time to take no action, other than meditation and
prayer. Learn to be still. During this time of suspension and waiting,
you may discover within yourself the gifts of inspiration, enlightenment
and unconditional love.
|14 - Temperance
You are being challenged to find the serenity of the middle way between
polarities. You are ready to embrace the different parts of your
personality, both light and shadow, that combine to make your own unique
self. Your inner, spiritual life harmonizes with your life in the
workaday world. You have discovered that your whole life is a work of
art. You may be in need of healing on a spiritual or physical level, and
the Winged One — a descendant of the ancient Bird Goddesses — is here
to facilitate that for you. She may also aid you as you move into the
role of healer yourself.

Spirit made manifest
Resolution comes as you use your personal power in a responsible way.
You have the ability to manifest your desires. You know how to enter
sacred space and bring spiritual energy into the world of matter. You
know how to focus your will and your passion towards a goal. Your
creativity energizes you and blesses those around you. You align
yourself with the heartbeat of the earth, and bring forth healing for
the planet and all her
