THE UNBELOVED WHITETHORNE
WHO WEARS THE SAME SUIT
The hawthorn is a small tree of the rose family which bears white and pink blossoms called May blossoms. The roses represent the strong emotion, passion and the thorns symbolize ruthlessness, and to feel no compassion. The element fire, force, and energy are embodiment of the hawthorn. In god-form, the tree is portrayed as Rhiannon which means “Great Queen,” who is strong and sovereign, hailing from a Welsh tribe of both British and Welsh goddesses. Not only does she ride a stunning white horse, Rhiannon is able to change her physical appearance to resemble one. She offers both the horse and a magical bag which are her gifts as tools of empowerment.
In a time gone by, Rhiannon, with free will, married Pwyll, the prince of Dyfed and the King of Annwyn. After many heart-breaking attempts their union produced an heir for the kingdom. Six midwives were hired to aid in the care of her son. A few months later the six midwives, tired from their duties, fell into a deep sleep. When they woke the baby was gone from his crib. The women feared the punishment they knew would come and decided to blame Rhiannon. Before first light, the six midwives slaughtered a litter of newborn pups. While Rhiannon slept they scattered the flesh, bones and blood in her bed. Rhiannon awoke to the horrible sight. The midwives told Pwyll and the countrymen that they had witnessed the queen herself eat the child. Rhiannon, covered in flesh and blood, cried out in denial of their judgment, but the midwives stuck to their conjured story. Although Rhiannon was innocent she was condemned to stand at the gate of the Great Hall with a yoke strapped over her neck and shoulders. She was told that when a visitor came she would tell them of her crime as she carried them into the hall upon her back like a horse. Time passed before Rhiannon was exonerated. On the night the child hand gone missing, Tiernon had found an infant boy and taken him home for he and his wife to raise. As the boy grew, the man noticed the resemblance his son had to the grieving prince. Once he put the coincidences together, he rode to the Great Hall to return the child. Upon his arrival, he refused Rhiannon’s request to tell him of her crime for he knew she had been judged wrongly. Pwyll and the countrymen agreed the young boy was the true heir and Rhiannon was released.
A Unique Understanding & Ritual for the Otherworld Great Queen Rhiannon, tap play...
The Judgment card is about one’s destiny. To create a change in personal consciousness is to blend with the universe’s energies. The fresh and pure energies have the power to break through present thought patterns to clear deep-seated, destructive, judgment patterns, and to remove the clutter and confusion to respond from a higher place. The subconscious is where the dark side of our impulses reside. The conscious is our waking mind, our thoughts, and are our moment of choice. Our higher conscious of the mind is directly linked to the purest light, LOVE. When the soul goes forth in life and combines the three layers of success without developing negative responses or misusing their power, there is success in Judgment and deserving rewards will come. Humans constantly seek justification for their choice of words, emotions, and deeds. The struggle with self and the environment will depend on one’s responses to the feedback. Our energy is incorporated with other people as well as every living and non-living thing.
We are healers who have the ability to heal ourselves by seeing our future, reliving our past, and examining the present to create a new perspective. Every emotion or thought creates a seed for a future event or situation. Our own personal judgment would design events or situations that are negative or positive. In order to mature and grow from the soul, time must be taken to reflect upon past actions to reinforce positive motivation at the present.
How is the past and future simultaneously contained within the present?
How one acted in the past and how they are presently coping with the chosen action today will decide the future outcome.
Judgment is born when one gives an opinion based on personal fact-finding. A final decision can be altered by the opinions of others. Always gather information for self before reacting. Judgments are a mirror of our own habitual indulgences to immoral conduct. It tends to impair grace. The mind works in an amazing way. The subconscious first reacts with defensiveness, dislike, and opposition. The conscious offers a moment to reflect and sort out information before the actual judgment takes place. This gives the higher conscious an opportunity to align one’s judgment in s positive way and dissolve negative karma patterns that are destructive. We have theablity to see into past patterns which created the present realities which, in turn, predict future patterns. Vibrations and frequencies change when one becomes aware of their words, emotions and deeds, and how they are affecting themselves and others. When one misjudges or pre-judges, one has already calculated an outcome.
No one has the right to monitor the behaviors of someone else. When judgments are made, one casts out an image of superiority. What people hear is that the person talking is above or better than them. I am always right - self righteousness; my friends are always right - blind opinion; my values are better than yours - judgmental; I can tell you every detail why I’m right - discrimination.
There is a unity. People are all alive to learn lessons through experience. Every person one meets is here to help the other. Roles are cast so one can experience give and take relationships. When the statement, “If it weren’t for them…” is used, one is judging or laying blame. When the phrase “If not for my words or actions,” is used, one takes their part in the problem. Evaluate where the situation or event is heading by taking a moment to listen and hear what’s going on, then find a way to express self without a negative judgmental response. To judge from a good heart and the higher conscious, learn to still the mind. Stop, watch, and listen to what is taking place. Curb speech, then tune into what the heart is trying to say. This is how you can learn the true skill of listening. When one accepts others with thoughtfulness, respect, love and compassion, from that moment on, all accounts of behavior are settled. Wisdom has been earned for one knows whatever one does every thought, emotion, word, or deed will affect others and bounce back on to them.
Look back on past, assess today what’s happening, then create a positive judgment for a better tomorrow. To compose a new perspective close the door on a past judgmental behavior and resolve not to act in that negative way any more.
Celtic Calendar Activity - 2 days before May 21st day of Full Moon, 2 days after
In the world of clairvoyance, Friday the 13th is a very beneficial day, charged with positive vibrations. With that in mind, I’m going to reveal a very simple and effective procedure that will accelerate the progress you make towards attaining the life of your dreams.
Time is too short to stifle your desires. Don’t think small, think big and eliminate your limitations. Doing big things doesn’t require any more energy or time than restraining yourself from doing ordinary things. Think big and big things will happen to you. Think small, and your life will stagnate.
Predictions made during this period are highly charged with the positive energy of Luck, and rarely contain bad news. In contrast to some traditions, which claim Friday the 13th is negative, the
predictions I make on this special day are always filled with good tidings in the areas of money, Love, Luck and health.
There are always strong concentrations of astral energy in the Higher Vibratory Spheres on Friday the 13th. These periods trigger huge events, and it’s up to you to profit from them by adopting the right attitude.
You should start generating positive thoughts, especially about a problem you’re preoccupied with, a few days beforehand, whether it concerns Love, money, health, Luck, or your career.
To do, that isolate yourself in a quiet place for 30 to 60 minutes, somewhere you know you won’t be disturbed. Shut your phone off, and don’t make any appointments for the hour or two before and after you practice. Make sure you’re protected from prying eyes. If you practice during the day, try to do it when the sun is at its highest point, or close to it. If you can feel the sun’s rays and heat on your skin, all the better.
You could also practice around midnight, but you should stop when the clock reaches the midnight hour. That means you should start around 23:00 hrs, a time when the nocturnal energy is most favorable.
Wear loose-fitting clothing you feel comfortable in. Be sure not to constrict your stomach so you can breathe properly.
Try to perform the ceremony at least three hours after you eat, and don’t drink any alcohol.
Get as comfortable as you can, either sitting down or stretched out on your back (which is probably best if you practice at night).
Don’t worry if you fall asleep. Slipping into sleep just means you’ll get a good night’s rest.
The Fear of Friday the 13th
is called friggatriskaidekaphobia - "Frigg" is the Norse goddess whom Friday is named after and "triskaidekaphobia" means the fear of "13".
The superstition surrounding Friday 13 could also be linked to Norse mythology. According to legend, 12 gods were at a banquet at Valhalla when Loke, the demi god of mischief who was not invited, turned up, bringing the total number of guests to 13. He was responsible for the chaos that led to the death of one of the good gods – Balder – so all the gods grieved.
The ancient Egyptians thought the number 13 was lucky because they believed that the 13th stage of life was related to the afterlife. After the decline of the ancient Egyptian civilization the number 13 was still associated with death but with fear.
Back in 1306, King Philip of France had hundreds of Knights Templar arrested on Friday, October 13. They were tortured and then executed - definitely bad luck for the Knights Templar.
Pagans and Wiccans. There are thirteen lunar cycles each year, and many of us celebrate the full moons with an Esbat rite.
Thirteen is the number of full moons in a year, so the significance is lunar and associated with the Goddess of the moon
Thirteen is the traditional number of witches in a coven. Wiccan author Scott Cunningham published The Thirteen Goals of a Witch in his book Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner, loosely basing the list on an older British traditional source.
Because Friday is associated with the planet Venus, and therefore the Goddess Venus/Aphrodite, Friday is the best day to cast spells for love or to find a new relationship.
