Yesterday Mars came out of its retrograde phase and went direct again! With this energy, you’ll feel more dramatic and creative, also self-confident and assertive. You have energy, courage and honesty. Come forward and shine! Optimistically live in the moment and create your future! Enjoy the pleasures of life! Most of all: be yourself! You […]

When you look into the eyes of another

Do to others as you would have them do to you

June 29, 2016

Filed under: Art, Astrology, Quotes

Some major astrological shifts are happening today/tonight (I am writing from a European perspective). First, the Moon will move out of Aries and into Taurus. Moon in Taurus brings about an energy of generosity to the next couple of days. This energy speaks of sowing seeds of Love without attachments, and without thoughts of personal […]

Daily Tarot: Six of Water (Cups)

June 28, 2016

Filed under: Astrology, Tarot

Today we pulled a Tarot card from the Angel Tarot deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine: the Six of Water (Cups in ‘traditional’ tarot). This card matches perfectly the energy of this period! It talks of memories from the past that have resurfaced and of dealing with the associated emotions, as in releasing guilt […]

It’s Monday, I know: It’s hard, and it might feel like it sucks. But it’s part of a bigger picture – never forget that! The pain and struggle is there for a purpose, even if there and then we might not see it. Rather than battling and struggling with it, you can transform your suffering […]

Flow like a Jellyfish

Good sunday, everybody! Today we pulled an Oracle card from the ‘Secret Language of Animals‘ deck by Chip Richards. The Jellyfish is a fascinating animal. It has been on this planet for over 1 and a half billion years. By contrast, the modern form of humans only evolved about 200,000 years ago. Jellyfish doesn’t really […]

Saint John’s day has been assimilated by Christianity, not unlike other recurrences, stating that June 24th is the birth day of St. John the Baptist, but its roots are older and pagan. This whole past week, starting with the Summer solstice of June 21st (exceptionally happening on a full moon this year!), and up to […]

When I was a little kid, on some rainy Saturdays, I used to play with my dad. One of his favorite games was to lay out on the desk a ton of little plastic soldier figures, representing entire armies from different times and regions, and set them up for improbable ‘duels’ outside of the socially […]

Choose Love

June 22, 2016

Filed under: Art, Photo

If you ask me, romanticism has not done much good to the western view of relationships. Neither do those over-zealous categorization that are fashion these days trying to split the atom and label the difference between soul mates, twin flames, and other extremely specific types of relationships, as if the whole matrix of possibilities between […]

Today we all wake up to our new selves. In the last few months we have planted new strong seeds and learned many tough lessons, we have all done a large emotional cleanup. This summer Solstice happens together with a full moon, and it might be your only time in this life that you see […]

This is a card from a new deck we bought here at the Sanctuary of Joy: the ‘Druid Plant Oracle‘. These cards combine our passion for Nature with the one for Oracles! Jyothi is especially passionate about medical plants and herbs, and she is studying to become an official naturopathic doctor, which means she is […]

When I was a little kid, I was a bit of a monkey. With the help of a chair, I used to climb up on the top of a big cupboard, and I was sitting up there, under the ceiling, observing the cities, the castles, or the space stations that I had previously built with […]

Silence is the language of God

Enjoy the silence

June 17, 2016

Filed under: Art, Photo, Quotes

It’s OK to allow yourselves alone time, and silence. Make no mistake: this is not the silence of innocent victims of violence, this is not the silence of ‘half truths’ and lies, this is not the silence of staying entrenched behind a wall hiding our emotions, and this is not the silence of not speaking […]

Hi everybody! Today we have pulled a card from a new deck we recently bought: the ‘Gaia Oracle‘ by Toni Carmine Salerno. The card invites us to open our hearts. Let’s connect with the pure energy of Love that is inside of you (and outside, and in all things). Feel that we are all part […]

Challenge yourself with determination to take a risk and live your life to its fullest! Don’t stay stuck in the nightmare that wants us all conforming. Be your true self. Sing your song! You have the capacity to change yourself, but you need to have the willingness to put the necessary work in, and show […]

Your partner is your team mate

Your partner is your team mate

June 14, 2016

Filed under: Art, Photo

Your partner is your team mate; not an opponent. The goal – when discussing something in a relationship, but also more in general – should be to find a solution, a common ground; to make progress; not to win arguments. This is life, it’s not about who knows the most; it’s not about getting grades […]

Experiencing the moment

Happy Sunday! Today it might feel like you are getting towards the end of a tunnel; light is in sight, the worst is over. But be aware that awakening is only the first step. Too easy it is to fall back asleep and get trapped in the illusion again. Be mindful of who you spend […]

When the low, heavy sky weighs like a lid (quot. Charles Baudelaire), the situation might seem difficult and maybe you are a little tired, today. You have been going on for so long and maybe spreading yourself a bit thin, and this has been a period of awakening and renewal for many, so it’s only […]

Things might move slower that our minds would like, today. And yet there is a sensuality in how everything is beautifully unfolding. Even when you look at how gracefully you stepped onto life’s challenges and have overcome them, there is always a miraculous set of seemingly unrelated actions that in retrospective show ourselves how everything […]

Keep going! Your dream is getting there! Don’t give up! Keep tending the fire, keep your vision steady, focus on excellence and forget speed of execution – it takes what it takes. The signs of progress and recognition are all around you – I know that you see them; but you also need to believe […]

It’s good to have goals, but there is no need to obsess over them: otherwise the wait might seem unbearable! Just focus on each task at hand, do small steps each day, and flow thru life. Do everything that you do with Love and care. Do you love what you do? Do you find joy […]

This year is a year that can’t be ignored. It pushes the truth on your face. It sets the bar high. It won’t settle for ‘the usual’. It wants us to transform, to evolve, to fulfill our destiny. The stakes are high. Some famous (and some less famous) people died and, by now, 2016 should […]

'Retreat' Romance card

This Earth is the garden of Eden (if you make it so)

June 3, 2016

Filed under: Oracle cards

I had a vision, and the garden of Eden was not some different place or a different world. Adam/Eve (metaphors for the early people on earth) were not really ‘banned’ from it nor had to physically move some place else. There was no external ‘God’ entity actively punishing them and banning them from the heavenly […]
