I Have Found My Way Between the Worlds

    After three weeks (almost) of searching and trying to learn the lessons of the High Priestess, I have found my way.  The High Priestess represents the way between the worlds.  Between where we are this moment and what we may become.  The magician is the resource we need but the it takes working through the High   Priestess to find out what that resource is.
    My resource is my creativity with photography.  I am not sure yet in what way I will need to utilize this resource.  But I am sure that photography will be what takes me along my path.  As Frigg waeves the fabric of life, I too need to weave.  But my weaving will be a story.  Perhaps only in images, perhaps in words as well.  I have now to move on from the High Priestess and learn what purpose my weaving is to serve.
    This is an exciting time for me.  Almost a year ago I had set certain goals for myself, but, as the saying goes, life got in the way.  Well, the year from hell is over and my time has now come.

Searching for the High Priestess

    Searching for the High Priestess, come out, come out where ever you are.  I haven't had much luck yet in connecting to the divine.  I've tried meditations, herbal teas, hearbal pillows and good old fashioned hard physical work.  All I've managed to locate are some old ambitions and a bad cold.  Come to think of it, the old ambitions were worth finding again.
    Last year I had a grand plan to acheive personal success with photography.   During my year from hell it fell by the wayside.  While searching for my connection to the divine I may not have found the key, but I did find the ambition to get shooting again.
    Other ambitions have also surfaced.  Plans and schemes to take the place of dreams that no longer fit.  I don't know if this is the way that I am supposed to be connecting.  Perhaps it is.  Perhaps my merging of the two worlds is supposed to be one of photographic capture.  i can only find out by trying.

Moving on to The High Priestess

    It has taken me some extra time to finally leave the Magician's realm and move onto the next card.  I have spent this time involved with changes at work, putting the gardens to bed for the winter and fighting off a series of colds. 
    I have also spent this time working on projects that I needed to get started.  Holiday gifts to be made from herbs and gems, cleaning of closets and reconnecting with old friends.  I have finally started on my CafePress stores and will be also working on some photo ideas I had put on hold.
    Tomorrow is the full moon.  The next two weeks will be the time for me to again rid myself of excess baggage.  Memories that serve no purpose and daydreams that do nothing but waste time.
    The High Priestess represents our striving to go between two worlds.  Linking the everyday that we live in with the realms of the divine.  It is often likened to the Wiccican way of "Drawing Down the Moon", of trying to embode The Goddess into ourselves so that we may share of her wisdom.  I'm not sure of what I will find as I meditate upon the High Priestess.  I only know that I am now ready to try.
