Relax. Unwind. Unclench. Breathe. For real, people, there are messages coming in that you’re missing because you’re too uptight. This morning when I sat down to prayer an hour ago, what I usually do is some chanting. But I sat there this morning and couldn’t start. I had to just sit and listen. So I closed my eyes, relaxed my grip on my mala, and reached out to the silence of the dark outside. I tried to hear the fog moving around the hill on which I live, and occasionally felt a breath of cold air. Then later, just a few moments ago when I did a charm casting for today, the first charm out of the bowl was The Ear. And now, here in this draw, we have the King of Swords reversed (too much mind), the rune Raido reversed (stop moving for a goddamn minute), and the Ogham Stave Muin reversed (Muin is the Vine, and when it’s reversed you can see in your mind’s eye the unwinding of a clinging vine). Muin is also a Stave of prophecy, and the month of the year it’s associated with is August, so you can see that now is the time for messages to be flowing. The natural world is speaking to you, to us. Stop talking. Put the phone down for a little while (or turn it off), step into your power and natural authority, and just be silent. Imperially silent. Commandingly silent. Declare a moratorium on speech in your kingdom for a little while, and just listen.
