January 20

My prayers on Tuesday were quite short, but I did find it interesting, the day of Mars, I got Strife.

It's important to remember that strife is not always a bad thing. It is the struggle of opposing forces. A lot of energy is both created and expended in strife, represented by the ten flames coming out of the center of the card. It can be a source of creativity, a source of wealth.

Times of struggle and strife require new solutions, because the old ways have brought us to an impasse. We need to look at ways we haven't explored before, to get out of our current situation. The energy generated in that pursuit will carry us through to the next goal.

Psalm 2

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
