MAHAVATAR BABAJI: Soul Expansion; Your consciousness is expanding. You understand the connections between all things. Mahavatar means “great incarnation, or avatar” and Babaji means “sacred father”. Mahavatar Babji is a deeply respected master yogi who was introduced to the world through the teachings of the Indian yogi Paramahansa Yogananda. Babaji, as he’s called for short, is said to be over 2000 years old and able to travel between Earth and other worlds. He is said to have an invisible temple in the Himalayas that can appear to those he wants to connect with. Many believe that he is like Christ himself, bringing deep love, acceptance, forgiveness, insight and direction.
You may feel that you’ve retreated from the world recently. Maybe you’ve not been as active socially or spiritually, but this time of inner rest has really paid off. You are becoming more and more consciously aware of how connected you are to God and all living beings. This sense of union is called yoga. Yoga goes beyond physical ability and into a sense of awareness that’s created through spiritual practice, meditation and devotion to the divine. Mahavatar Babaji, the yogic father, is here to inspire that fire of union within you so that you can understand how your thoughts and actions are creating the waves of energy that form your life.

CERNUNNOS: Life Force; Express your driving passion. Sensual and sexual powers are increased. Cernunnos (pronounced Ker-nun-os), also known as Herne, is a Celtic stag god who represents connection to the Earth. He is one of the oldest recognized Celtic gods and featured on the Gundestrup cauldron, a giant silver vessel from the Iron Age. He is the lover of the Great Mother and impregnates the land so that it will be filled with life. He can help us form a connection with the animal spirits and ancestors of our land.
There is a deep build-up of life-force within you now and a need to channel it into action. You may have extra energy or be more alert than usual, or be aware of a sense of increased sensual or sexual energy. If you have been unsure how this ties into your spiritual path, know that it can allow you to access the richness of your soul. When we are not expressing ourselves, sexually, our spiritual potential can become tamed or muted, so if you are denying yourself a desire, ask yourself how you can fulfill it. Ask Cernunnos to help you access your sexual self so that you can express it with integrity and in a way that honors your soul. If you and your partner are trying for a child and this card appears, fertility is very possible, especially if Brigid, Cernunnos’s twin flame, is present also.
