Planning a Breakthrough?This is the month for it!
When food is prepared with happiness and the pure intention of nourishing others, it becomes a blessing— an offering, a holy action. Cooking, like yoga, becomes transcendent when done with focus and consciousness—essential components of all spiritual paths. Next time you barbeque or serve a meal, be sure to add the extra ingredients of love, joy, and gratitude, with a pinch of humility for luck.
The Kitchen Tarot, when happily-blended with the philosophy of numerology and a dash of joy, provides nourishing food-for-thought. From tarot, August brings to the table the energies of number Three as the main course—the reduced single-digit for August equals month #8, when added to the year 2011 becomes 8+2+0+1+1and equals 12, whose sum total reduces down (1+2) to 3— making this a month of breakthroughs concerning addiction and mother issues, as well as a time for appreciating Ma Nature’s bounties, and expressing your ever-growing creativity.
You're granted a temporary exemption from acting and feeling like your same old self now, and possess a tremendous capacity to convert your old wounds, as well as the old wounds of others, into brilliant opportunities. Like the classic Empress tarot card of abundant life force, the Kitchen Tarot's card 3— the Stove— encourages growth and fertility, enjoying life’s exalted natural pleasures, and is ripe for tackling issues that have been simmering on the back burner. Open wide to joy!
In sync with Card 3, passions—like the temperatures—are on the rise, warning that if you’ve been playing with fire, you’ll likely get sautéed. Picnic in places where you once experienced a defeat, and take the action necessary to render the loss irrelevant. Monitor extravagant consumption of self-pity and sentimentality now. It’s time to start cooking self-confidence and optimism on all four burners. Group therapy, the buddy system, hospice, and counseling go well now. Only dine on healthy pleasures, chem-free love, and garden-fresh compassion.
August’s Card 3 Affirmation: My creativity is abundant; my potential is unlimited.
