Learn to Spin the Wheel of Fortune In Your Favor

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could just spin a Wheel of Fortune and win the prizes we desire in life — the perfect job, the best relationship, idyllic vacations etc. We all know that life isn’t that easy. But what if I told you there is a way to for you to have a better chance of creating the situations in your life that would work in your favor?

The mystery of the Sphinx, which guards the majestic Pyramids of Giza, holds a secret formula to help us begin to examine our own powers. In order to be co-creators in our lives, we must do at least four things with determination.

1. We must “Know”
2. We must “Dare”
3. We must “Will”
4. We must “Be Silent”

What does this mean? Take a look at the the “Wheel of Fortune” tarot card from the Rider-Waite deck of the BOTA deck and look at the mysterious figures in the four corners of the cards. The symbolism of tarot can provide keys to help you unlock the subconscious mind, which is your doorway to higher levels of consciousness.  Implanting positive images within the subconscious mind  will allow you program your subconscious mind to help you  manifest your desires.

Sage Lee Speaks on The Divine Masculine

The political occurrences in our country this week have caused distress for many, as they wonder if our country is going to crumble during this chaotic play with an ensemble of characters quickly coming and going in the White House. I have been reflecting on the idea of the Divine Masculine, as described by  Sage Lee on the “Charting Your Course” broadcast in May, as we discussed “The Emperor” from the major arcana of the tarot deck. He made some very important comments regarding the responsibility of embodying the Divine Masculine in leadership.

The word “emperor” means “he who sets in order” and that is the essential quality of a leader. Where there is a lack of order, progress is impossible.  Lee, in a Facebook Live video, shortly after President Donald Trump was sworn in,  said,  “I’m not wanting to pick on the president.  But he is a good example to see what is actually happening with the masculine, that is not the Divine Masculine.”

When we think of divine, “we think of “god-like” Lee says, “and we all can be god-like. We have imagination.  We can create things. We are the only creatures on the planet that can imagine a future that could be. So we have a great responsibility to the rest of the planet.” The tarot teaches us that the qualities represented by the images on the cards are not based on gender. “The Divine Masculine is actually inside all of us,” Lee says,  “men or women.”

During our study of “The Emperor”  key on “Charting Your Course” — which airs on Sunday nights on Revolution Radio — we noted that the male figure only shows one side of his face. One  eye faces the viewer, but the other eye is not seen. Where is that other eye looking?

“The Emperor is facing sideways … one of his eyes is facing towards the Divine and the other eye is facing toward the world,” Lee explains, in the video below.  “So the way that he makes decisions is that he is constantly in consultation with the Divine, while he is making a decision in the world.”  The idea of turning to a higher power, Lee says, is an act of wisdom. This is something we all need to do, Lee says,  “… base decisions not on ego, but on a consultation with the Divine, and asking yourself “what is for the greatest good for all.”

Stepping into The Divine Feminie

Posted by Sage Lee on Friday, January 20, 2017

In the video Lee  pinpoints other essential qualities of good leadership – –  a sense of sharing, acknowledgment of others’ work,  and respect. He speaks of Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa,  an effective world leader. and how his trials and suffering in prison under an apartheid regime, molded him into a man that commanded respect. “The Divine Masculine bases decisions, not on ego, but on  consultation with The Divine. It means that there is always one eye looking at the bigger picture. ”

Take a listen to the video and find food for thought, and hopefully you will feel  a sense of hope for the future as the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine come in to balance, during this age of Aquarius.

TEN MINUTE TAROT TIP: Strength – Key 8

Realizing our desires takes discipline, determination and decisiveness.  Talk is truly cheap! In this  short Facebook Live video  you may discover some inspiration that reveals how symbolism can assist you in making valuable contributions to our subconscious mind. Using visual images for meditation can help  create a stronger connection with the superconscious or Divine Mind.

Each tarot key has an astrological attribution.  “Strength” Key 8 is the zodiac sign Leo. This  is my personal card, that I reflect on regularly, since my birthday is July 30, 1952. But  Key 8 can provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between the self-conscious and subconscious mind.

Our desires can be like wild beasts, running wild in our mind, without any restraint or direction.  As we learn to direct that energy of the desire beast, you can then harness its power for our benefit. Take a listen and leave me some comments.  I love feedback!

10 minute of Tarot tips on Key 8 the Strength key!

Posted by Francesca Simon on Thursday, August 17, 2017

Direct Your Desires With “Strength” – Key 8

How can we realize our desires? This was the focus for  the  “Ten Minute Tarot”  Facebook Live session on Thursday, August 17, at 9:15 p.m.  The session served as preparation for this  Sunday’s broadcast of “Charting Your Course” on Revolution Radio at freedomslips.com.

Strength – Key 8, which will be discussed on Sunday’s broadcast,   provides a secret to success in our endeavors.   Paul Foster Case in “The Tarot: A Key to the Wisdom of the Ages”  suggests that we must decide “(1) TO WILL; (2) TO KNOW ; (3) TO DARE; (4) TO BE SILENT.  But what exactly does that mean? This statement has also been associated with the Sphinx which sits on the plaza of the Pyramids of Giza.

If we compare similarities between Strength-Key 8 and the Magician-Key 1, we can begin to decipher this secret.  Red — the color of desire — is predominant  in both keys.  The Magician wears a red cloak over a white tunic in Key 1, while The Lion is red in Key 8 —  In Key 8 the woman in white — which represents purity — directs the mouth of The Lion, indicating we must direct our desires.

In  Key 1 we see The Magician standing beside a table with a wand, a cup, a sword and a coin or pentacle. These are the tools to be used by the Magician to manifest his desires. Everything in our world is composed of the four elements of fire, water, air and earth.  In tarot these four elements are represented by the tools on the Magician’s table.

Case explains that, “In practical, every-day life, the implements of the Magi- cian are the four life-essentials: light (wand), water (cup), air (sword) and food (pentacle). The combination of these life-essentials in proper order and proportions is the task of every practical occultist. ”  [Please note that the word “occult” simply means “hidden” — so from a mystical point of view, the occultist is one who seeks to discover the hidden secrets of nature and the invisible worlds.

These four tools on the Magician’s table, also represent your human facilities, that can be effectively developed to assist you with discovering and implementing your mission in lifetime. You have abilities and talents, you have yet to discover. Don’t doubt it!

The wand — the fire element — represents our desires.  We must identify what we truly want in this world.  We must select a desire to focus our attention on and then proceed to set this desire on fire with action!  We must be determined “To Will”  ourselves to take action to realize this desire.

The cup —  the water element — represents our emotions, which so often prevents us from even trying to fulfill our desires.  We sometimes feel we’re not smart enough, or talented enough, or  creative enough, or we don’t know enough. And those feelings stop us, before we can even start.  We must be determined “To Know” from the depths of our hearts are we are worthy and blessed by Divinity with gifts we  often, out of fear, fail to acknowledge.

The sword — the air element — represents our thoughts. We must decide “To Dare” — to challenge ourselves to “think” that we can indeed accomplish what may seem momentarily impossible. We must research,  acquire new skills, and make a plan, or in some other way prepare ourselves to chart our course toward our desire.

The pentacle — the earth element — represents our need for what I call “Cosmic Confidence”. We must surrender to the call “To Be Silent” — to “listen” to that still small voice. It  knows all and can provide the direction we so desperately need, when we embark on a daunting adventure. It is in The Silence that secrets are revealed. Observe that The Magician stands in silence, making himself a conduit, calling on that which is above, to bring it down to that which is below.

Experiment this formula:

TO WILL: Fire up your desire! Seek out what, who and where you find inspiration.  That should help you begin to identify what you truly love in life and guide you closer to how you can identify the channel through which you can express that desire.

TO KNOW: Reflect upon your true feeling, so you “know” where you stand within your own emotional domain.

TO DARE:  Dare yourself to dream, to give yourself permission to go where you have never gone before in your heart, mind and spirit.

TO BE SILENT: Seek wisdom in The Silence.  Schedule time to “date” Divinity — to spend quality time with the one who gives you magic and motion.  It can be through prayer, through song, through journaling, through dancing, studying scriptures or simply by taking a meditative walk through nature.

This mystical approach to tarot, allows you to chart our course, to determine our own destiny, based on our astrological blueprint.  Each key in the 22 keys of the Major Arcana (the first  22 cards out of the 78 card deck) is assigned an astrological sign.  The Strength card is designated for Leo, which applies to those born July 21 – August 21.  President Barack Obama was a Leo — clearly a communicator manifesting that talent both in speaking and writing.

Many people feel that they come into this life with no talent or special gifts, as if they’re just thrown off a cliff with no support.  But in truth, we all come here equipped with possibilities. In the Rosicrucian Ontology, an approach to the study of existence, the soul does not enter until  the first breath is taken and Man becomes a living soul. We come down into the Earth Plane of existence, bringing with us our past life experiences. And we know before we get here, but then spend the rest of our lives trying to remember what we signed on to be doing.

The Sage Tarot Deck , created by artist and tarot reader Sage Lee, a Readers Studio  Alumnus, shows the Fool descending confidently from heights above with his gaze locked on a target.  It is an image that may resonate with many of us, contemplating the process of coming to the Earth with a mission.  We are born carrying with us tools to work with.  A white rose, representing purified desires, floats beside the falling, yet confident, Fool. And the briefcase with the Eye of Ra emblazoned upon it, represents the sum total of experiences from  past lives.  The hour and geographical location of our birth, serves as our portal of entry, shaping our personality, talents, strengths and weaknesses.

This is the reason astrology has always been studied by those aspirants seeking to explore the sacred mysteries.  And any adult, can look at their blueprint and ascertain the presence of truth in their astrological profile.

If you’ve never had your chart done by an astrologer, you can get a free one at Cafe Astrology, which provides a very detailed analysis, which could offer you some powerful insight. It is, in a sense, our instruction manual that can assist us in effectively and efficiently living our lives.  Once we become aware of our strengths and weaknesses, then we can better navigate around  dangerous areas and shore up our weak spots, thus charting a more successful course.
