Medical marijuana is both a preventative and treatment for many human afflictions, but smoking is not a healthy or effective way to ingest its medicinal properties. Cannabis edibles are much healthier for you — which is just one reason why cannabis cuisine is taking the world — and the internet — by storm!
Matters of security and control are center stage today. You have reached a point where you feel secure wit your resources, bu you don’t want to chance anything. You are holding on tight to what you have and refusing to move from your position of control. You may be protecting your money, your job, your time, your home and possessions, or your material body. While a sense of security is to be valued, change is also necessary for us to develop. When you let loose and go with the flow, whether by taking a chance with your money, letting someone else be in charge, or clearing out the unused clutter in your home, you are creating an opportunity to learn, grow and acquire more. This card indicates that you have a firm foundation. At this time, sitting firmly may be exactly the right thing to do. As you move into the future you will have to decide whether you’d like to stay where you are or use your foundation to continue building.
Aloha kākahiāka ōukōu e Hau’ōli aloha Pō’akolu. Kā maluhia a me ka maʻalahi a me nā ‘ohana e hoaloha. Ī lā nani nou.
Good morning and Happy Aloha Wednesday, everyone … Wishing peace and contentment to our family and friends. Have a beautiful day!

Ayahuasca was a sacred medicine. Now it’s a global ‘it’ drug, and the trendiness is threatening the source. This is the newest form of cultural appropriation to date … and for what? Bragging rights by New Age entrepreneurs? Caveat emptor!
This card might come up when you are denying your inner voice telling you there is something to worry about. You are acting like everything is fine, but deep inside you have doubts you ought to address. You may be putting on a brave face when secretly you are afraid. Or, this card may come up when your fears or nightmares have become seriously disruptive in your life, like when you’ve developed a phobia (irrational fear) or have become insomniac. This card can also come up once you’ve finally done something about the fear, yet still worry about your feelings. Perhaps you have told someone what you are afraid of, or wrote about your worries in your journal. Confessing your fear has freed you from it to some degree. It might be therapeutic for you to work with your fears and nightmares — write them down, analyze where they come from, peel away the layers to learn about yourself and grow. So, for today only, it’s time to start getting to the roots of your worry. There is something you’ve been pushing down or trying to ignore, but it’s not working for you anymore. Your worries creep in when you’re trying to sleep, disrupt your appetite, create so much noise in your mind. A good way to start facing what’s bothering you is to write it down. From there, you can decide if there’s something you can do about it, or choose to just let it go.
Aloha kākahiāka kākou e no ko ʻianei manaʻo ʻia ōukōu a pau, he aloha ka Pōʻalua. I lele ā ʻalohi kākou! I lā āwaiwa nou ōukou. Ō ka maluhia no me ʻoe.
Idha tappati, pecca tappati,
pāpakārī ubhayattha tappati.
“Pāpaṃ me katan”ti tappati,
bhiyyo tappati, duggatiṃ gato.
Idha nandati, pecca nandati,
katapuñño ubhayattha nandati.
“Puññaṃ me katan”ti nandati,
bhiyyo nandati, suggatiṃ gato.
Agony now, agony hereafter,
the wrong-doer suffers agony in both worlds.
Agonized now by the knowledge that one has done wrong,
one suffers more agony, gone to a state of woe.
Rejoicing now, rejoicing hereafter,
the doer of wholesome actions rejoices in both worlds.
Rejoicing now in the knowledge that one has acted rightly,
one rejoices more, gone to a state of bliss.
Dhammapada 1.17, 1.18

See this well-dressed woman standing in this beautiful garden? She got there by working hard and is now enjoying the fruits of her labor. She acted with discipline, taming her impulses like she’s tamed the bird on her arm. When this card appears, it may be a time to act with such discipline. You will accomplish much by quieting your animal instincts. It could also be a time for self-reliance, for taking charge of your own future. You may be craving more independence. This card could also mean that you have already accomplished much. Now, it’s time to indulge in rewards that you deserve. Pamper yourself. Take yourself out on a date. The Nine of Pentacles could also be telling you that you give off the impress of not needing anyone else, or could represent somebody else that gives that impression. So, for today only, reward yourself for all the good, hard work you’ve done lately. Be proud of what you’ve accomplished and treat yourself well! By making the effort to celebrate now, you’ll be reinforcing your good work and replenishing your energy for even more success in the future.
In observance of Memorial Day … O ka maluhia no me ‘oe. Peace be with you.

I got a new house with a teeny tiny backyard (roughly 15 x 10) that ends at someone else’s side wall. When you look out the dining room window, all you see is brick. So I thought it would be nice to make some planters in which to grow climbing green things (so far, got cucumber, tomato, and various peas). But it would also be nice to have someplace to sit out back when we’re grilling, so enter the planter-seats. The real thing ended up remarkably like the digital plan. I’m impressed, and for that I have to thank Patrick, who made this plan into a reality.
Today is a day for following your excitement. Do something new that ignites your curiosity and invites your creativity. It is quite likely that a little fear will come up as you take these new steps, but that’s all part of the fun! There are endless possibilities for each of us in this crazy world. Start expanding your horizons! You might be feeling eager to begin a new project, or set off on a new adventure. This card could also represent exciting news!
Aloha kākahiaka a me Hauʻoli lā La’pule kākou. Ē piha keīa lā mea ke aloha a me kā pono. Hoihoi! Ō kā maluhīa no me ʻoe.
Good morning and Happy Sunday to you all. May your day be filled with love and goodness. Enjoy! Peace be with you.
Many times we can get in the natural cure thousands of our ills, in this way we can eliminate the most recurrent ailments of our body without having to resort to painkillers or other medicines to take care of our health.
The Nine of Cups reversed is a card that indicates disappointment or smugness. You may be feeling emotionally empty, despite your efforts, or that you can’t be happy until you have what someone else has. It may be that your current path will never bring you the joy you seek and that you need to look for it elsewhere. Alternatively, happiness may be very close at hand but you need to begin noticing all you do have, instead of what you lack. This card could also indicate that you are very happy, but you are using your happiness in ways that hurt others. You may be so self-satisfied that you are not noticing the feelings of those around you. Your bragging and smugness may be very unappealing to those around you. Today, delight in your senses and emotions. Taste the delicious food you eat, feel the comfort of your home, appreciate the amazing gifts of music and art that have been created for our pleasure, feel the amazing love that flows in and out of your heart. What an amazing world! What an amazing thing to be alive! Choose to be happy today; it really is a choice.

Aloha kākahiāka ōukōu a me hau’ōli lā Pō’aono. Hōʻomanāo a me aloha kekāhi i kekāhi. Hoihoi keīa nani lā. Ī hopenapule maikā’i. Ō ka maluhia no me ʻoe.
Good morning, everyone, and Happy Saturday. Always remember to love one another. Have a nice weekend. Peace be with you.
I draw in a deep breath, and release it with a long sigh – aah – all tension leaving my body, feeling my body softening and relaxing.
You have to do your own work;
Enlightened Ones will only show the way.
Those who practise meditation
will free themselves from the chains of death.

After a quiet time with a void-of-course Taurus Moon, there will be a noticeable change in mood when the Moon dashes into Gemini early this morning. The only aspect she makes for close to twenty four hours is the New Moon in Gemini during the afternoon. One of Gemini’s best things is the knack for quickly processing masses of information and make adjustments accordingly on the fly. This New Moon could hit many people with more data than they can handle, especially if they have strongly fixed sign charts. Most of us would benefit from taking a few days to let things settle enough so we can determine what’s valuable and what’s not. Do your best to pace yourself today and be firm about not taking on too much at once. 🌠☽♊🌠

This Knight is riding in full course, as if scattering his enemies. In the design, he is really a prototypical hero of romantic chivalry. He might almost be Galahad, whose sword is swift and sure because he is clean of heart. The Knight of Swords represents skill, address, bravery, capacity, defense, enmity, wrath, war, destruction, opposition, resistance, ruin. There is, thus, a sense in which the card signifies death, but it carries this meaning only in its proximity to other cards of fatality … but not today. This Knight is in alignment with Gemini, which is synchronous with the Sun and Moon in Gemini tonight. Gemini characteristics include intelligence, independence, freedom, enterprise, adaptability, communication, curiosity, persuasiveness, amusement, variety, fickleness, superficiality, impatience and reactive to circumstance. What does this all mean for you? This Knight is often taken as a person who is young, confident and articulate, but who may act impetuously. The problem, thus, is that you might be carried away by unrealistic expectations. You may come up with strong arguments for your position, but your impatience and impulsiveness might work against you in the end. So, don’t be too quick to rush in and engage in conflict. Scope out the lay of the land first before you open your mouth.
Hau’oli Aloha Pō’alima a pau. Ka hopena pule, ua ʻaneʻi pela ke hoike nei i kekahi leʻaleʻa i loko o ka lā me ka ‘ohana a me nā hoa aloha. Loaʻa he nui lā. O ka maluhia no me ‘oe.
ROUTINE TESTS SUCH AS PAP SMEARS AND MAMMOGRAMS ARE IMPORTANT, BUT DO NOT RELY SOLELY ON THESE TESTS. IT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO LISTEN TO YOUR BODY AND NOTICE ANYTHING DIFFERENT OR INEXPLICABLE. YOU DO NOT WANT TO JOIN THE RANKS OF CANCER PATIENTS WHO REALIZE THAT IT IS TOO LATE. HERE ARE SOME SIGNS THAT ARE USUALLY OVERLOOKED …
Sace bhāyatha dukkhassa, sace vo dukkhamappiyaṃ,
mākattha pāpakaṃ kammaṃ, āvi vā yadi vā raho.
Sace ca pāpakaṃ kammaṃ, karissatha karotha vā,
Na vo dukkhā pamutyatthi:
If you fear pain, if you dislike pain,
don’t do an evil deed in open or secret.
If you’re doing or will do an evil deed,
you won’t escape pain:
it will catch you even as you run away.
Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
