Alex's Card Of The Day, The Hermit

The hermit is card number 9 in the major arcana. Yet an other good little card.
Looking for answers to life's mysteries or something more closer to home. This card guarantees finding the answers that you seek, at this point in time.
You wont be satisfied until you get what your are looking for, be it a lost item, or should you take up study.

Use your inner light or wisdom to illuminate your path. Working with solid foundations such as reason, wisdom, insight and truth. Sometimes you may feel the need to be alone so as to retreat within yourself to think clearly. Now is not a time to let life's distractions get in the way of what you want. Perhaps it is a new job, good luck on your journey.

The number 9 on this card is the number of initiation, it is also the number for completeness, it is male energy, and also for conflict and communication. The number nine also corresponds to the Planet Mars in astrology.
Notice the white at the feet of the hermit. This stands for purity as does Virgo. The Hermit's lantern stands for the light of reason, his cloak for the protective mantle of self possession.
The staff that he holds connects him to the supreme being, but also the forces of nature,faith, strength and comfort. Thy rod and thy staff, the comfort me; Psalm 23.

Notice the black squiggle at his foot, this represents a snake, which is the sign of virility, but it can also represent spiritual energy (Kundalini). The Hermit card represents the astrological sign of Virgo.
A E Waite also has a lot of phallic symbology in his cards, I prefer to concentrate on the more spiritual aspects though.That's the Virgo in me coming out.

Alex's Tarot Card Of The Day: The Magician

 The Magician #1 in the major arcana.

This is a great card, very positive. It lets you know about your personal power and skills or creativity. When drawing this card in a reading you are guaranteed a successful outcome to the current situation. By using your wisdom and applying yourself diligently to the issue at hand. You have the necessary abilities within you to work things to your advantage.

The number one at the top of the card signifies the originator or primal force. This can also mean you as an individual, being original and making an impact as an innovator. Notice the yellow background, a positive and uplifting colour. This colour stands for spiritual energy also. The infinity symbol or lemniscate above the man's head stands for eternal life force. The snake belt around the man's waste is called an ouroboros which stands for the continuous time loop and connection of opposites. The magician's hands are indicating " as above so is below". In other words, as in spirit so on earth. But this is much deeper a subject with many layers of knowledge.

Alex's Tarot Card Of The Day: 5 Of Wands

Tarot card of the day Sunday 18th June 2017. 5 of Wands

This card signifies challenges to overcome whether they are negative, or indifferent challenges. It calls for thinking outside the box and working out the best options available to you.
This card is also a conflict card so be very careful in dealing with others, keep your cool and know when to back off or agree to disagree.
In health matters it signifies a hard struggle to overcome your situation. The same with money issues. 

Remember there are 4 meanings and 4 sub meanings to every card. However when working with the Tarot cards a Clairvoyant person also sees a layer of information on top of this. Sometimes we see a little movie in our mind's eye to inform the sitter or client. Nothing is ever set in stone. You have free will to change situations that you may be facing or find a way of dealing with the situation. Nothing in life is set in stone and nothing is ever guaranteed. We just have to make the best of life as we go along

Fire brigade issue warning over flammable moisturising cream after 15 deaths

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/fire-brigade-issue-warning-over-flammable-moisturising-cream-after-15-deaths-a3563161.html

(Quote) Emollients containing paraffin and petroleum, such as some products made by E45, are used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.


OMG I had no idea about this I have eczema and I am into natural products to treat my eczema.Please be very careful with the products you use on your skin, buy natural if you can.

Avoid any petrochemical products and especially anything with parabens and sulphates, they aggravate the condition. Have a look at the skin products in your local chemist/ pharmacy shop.
You will notice many of the products sold for people with skin conditions are filled with these dangerous chemicals.
Some people get on well with using PawPaw cream but for a small percentage of people, like myself it doesn't work at all.
