Welcome to the Daily Cast

The daily cast is a three coin cast. Every day (well, almost every day) I randomly pick one oracle coin from the pouch. Than I take the two structural coins (Axis Mundi, the green one and the Sirius coin, the red one) and cast the coins. My interpretation of the result is presented here. 

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1121: Back to School

If we really want to know more about a certain subject we need to get ourselves educated on it. The cast of today suggests that the best way to do that is by attending school or a course; to find ourselves a form of learning in which we familiarize ourselves with the knowledge that is already accumulated on the subject. Happy learning!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1120: Show the Way

We know what needs to be done so it is only natural that we take the lead today. With our confidence and knowledge we command respect without acting authoritative or bossy. We show the way and others follow joyfully so that at the end of the day the job is done and we are all content.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1118: Seek Company!

We are tempted to figure out our life on our own today, thinking that we do not need anybody's advice, anybody's help or even somebody's company. But we're wrong. Today is one of those days that is much better spent together with a friend. We know people that have our backs, so let's seek them out today, reaffirm that we have their back as well, and enjoy some time together.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1117: High Horses

Ideally people learn the finer nuances of what is right and what is wrong in the course of their lives; they are growing in wisdom while they are growing in years. Alas, not everyone who takes it upon themselves to pass judgement on others, is actually wise enough to do so. Confidence without skills leads to arrogance! Today somebody is riding in on their high horse, trying to dominate the situation. Let us not be overwhelmed by this person, but also, let's make sure it is not ourselves making this mistake...

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1116: Get Closer

We are too far away from the situation we want to assess to develop an informed opinion. In order to know what we have to do we first need to look at all aspects of the issue. For that we need to get a lot closer than we are now. That might feel a bit uncomfortable but sometimes it just needs to be done.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1115; Trust and Confidence

We invested our time, our money and our best efforts in our   'children', both literally and figuratively, and now it's time to let them go. Whether we are talking about actual children or whether we are referring to our projects, our creations or our artwork doesn't change the outcome; we did what we could and now it is time for us to let them go. We just have to be confident that we gave them all they needed to be able to stand on their own two feet.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1114: Don't Stick Your Head in the Sand

It is tempting to avoid dealing with a tricky situation or a difficult problem by ignoring it's existence. Withdrawing, for example by sleeping a lot more than usual, is one of the many strategies we can employ to avoid the confrontation with our responsibilities. Often this is an unconscious mechanism , so let's be on our guard; are we exceptionally tired and do we want to sleep all the time? Maybe it is our body's  way of expressing the discomfort we feel with a situation that we really need to resolve. Let us no longer postpone this duty but get it done as soon as we can. We will feel liberated once we've done it.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1113: Assess Your Skills

Whatever the challenges are that are facing us coming week; it might be a good idea to do a skill-check. Do we have the experience needed to bring this task to a successful end? It would be a shame to mess it up just because our pride is preventing us from hiring the best person for the job... It is not always us that need to take the lead! So let's assess what is needed and either hire or acquire the necessary skills.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1112: Contemplate Life

The Lady has come to the table, in her capacity of ruler over our 'inner landscape', over the spiritual or religious realm where we go to when we need to recharge our batteries. It is rather common to primarily think about that realm when we are in times of need. The lady commonly instruct us to take responsibility for our own actions and to take care of our own world and that of others.  Today however we read the cast as an invitation to contemplate our inner life just for the sheer pleasure of doing so. Maybe we could practice gratitude for all the help and encouragement we receive from our Deities, Ancestors or Spirit Guides, in whichever religious framework we are embedded in. Yes we bear responsibility for our worlds, both within and without, but we are not without support! Let's celebrate our part in the grand scheme of things.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1111: We Know Enough

We know what we need to know and it is time to make our decision. We may do so confidently. We did our homework, we reviewed all information available to us, let's put an end to this process and pass our verdict so everybody that this concerns can move on. No need to linger!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1110: Celebrate Your Health

We never know how precious our health is until it is threatened. So let us take some time today to celebrate the health we have got, for whatever our base-line is - weather we are the pinnacle of well-being or challenged by a condition - today has the makings of a good day. So let's enjoy what is granted to us, for it is ours and needs to be loved.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1109: Stronger than Ever

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1108: Options and Opportunities

The world is a wonderful place, full of possibilities. All its opportunities are limited only by the limits of our imagination. The fairy is here to encourage us to open our eyes and our hearts to new ideas.  We owe it to the inquisitive nature of our spirit to let it roam free from time to time. That we may become filled with wonder and awe!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1106: Patience...Patience!

Our leadership might be questioned by somebody who has the power to take it away. We might even be told to just shut up and do as we're instructed. Not the position we want to be in but this is not the best day to rebel against it. Sometimes it is better to bite our tongue and bide our time. This is just temporary, we will come back!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1105: Go Along to Get Along

Our ability to rule ourselves is infringed upon. Somehow we find ourselves in circumstances that takes our agency away. We are told to keep quite and go along with what is happening. Even if we feel the need to fight the forces that are stocking against us, this is not the best day to do so. Better to keep our dignity and go with the flow. Our time will come again.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1104: Accept Yourself

The Wise Man, with his long experience in life, does not doubt his identity or his worth. He knows what he is and he is content with it. Knowing what we are and accepting our flaws together with our strength gives us a great freedom of mind. No longer do we have to prove ourselves to anybody. A multitude of experiences have contributed to who we are today, but it is within our power to decide which of these experiences we allow to define us.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1103: Life Happens Now

Preparing ourselves for the future by making plans and setting aside some money to fulfill them is in itself a virtuous thing. To a certain extent it ensures our safety and stability. However, whenever the opponent - also known as the challenger - is on the table, we know that the Oracle is warning us not to take things into the extreme. In this case we are alerted to the fact that we run the risk of forgetting our present by looking too hard at the future. Life is that which is happening today while we are preparing for tomorrow, so don't miss it!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1102: Our Health Needs Attention

We need to take some extra precautions in order to stay healthy. Let's take our vitamins, do our exercises and make sure we get enough sleep. And that nagging little ache we have been complaining about for a while now, would it perhaps be a good idea to have that checked out? Our body will take good care of us only when we take good care of her!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1101: Seeking Safety

The people we turn to in our need of protection are failing, or at least, we feel that they're failing. We want structure, fair boundaries and safety but what we get is arbitrariness and chaos. If nobody else is protecting us, we have only ourselves to rely on and that is a lonely place to be in. However, knowing that this is the issue at hand makes it easier to deal with. So let's find a place or a friendship in which safety is given and received, and nourish that.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1100: ...and Enjoy Looking Forward

The Raven Coins made me smile this morning as they seem eager to make sure we get the message. Yesterday we were told not to forget to live life while it is happening, and today a little nuance is thrown in the mix: Some preparations are still in order. Just don't get lost in the prepping process at the cost of today. Every task we want to fulfill and every goal we want to achieve are lying within our reach. So let us joyfully prepare for the good times ahead as well as honoring the gift of today!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1099: Enjoy the Present!

Preparing ourselves for the future by making plans and setting aside some money to fulfill them is in itself a virtuous thing. To a certain extent it ensures our safety and stability. However, whenever the opponent - also known as the challenger - is on the table, we know that the Oracle is warning us not to take things into the extreme. In this case we are alerted to the fact that we run the risk of forgetting our present by looking too hard at the future. Life is that which is happening today while we are preparing for tomorrow, so don't miss it! So with a twist to my normal greeting;

Don't just create a future; enjoy the present!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1098: Recuperate!

The Cave coins is about taking time for ourselves, about healing through rest and introspection. In the dark solitude of the cave we can receive the best ideas. With the opponent on the table however, it seems that we are not paying enough attention to this part of life. We need to slow down a bit a make sure that we take enough time to rest. Did we by any chance had a busy hollidayweekend in stead of taking time off? Make sure to balance productive time and time to recuperate!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1097: Details Matter

On our hilltop we have an overview. We see the grand picture and imagine that we know all there is to know. However, the smaller, sometimes intimate details of a given situation are lost to us. We see the forest, but not the trees. So let's not get arrogant in our delusion of all-knowing, let us come down  the hilltop and its ivory tower, and see what things are actually about up close. Only than we can truly get to know things.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1096: Neglected?

We can be confronted with neglect today. Either we feel that someone who should take care of us is not doing their job, or that we are not doing it ourselves.So this is something we want to look into. Alternatively it doesn't hurt to contact our actual mother (not necessarily our bio mom but a person that fulfills that role for us) to make sure that they are alright. Sometimes this particular combination of coins must be taken literally.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1095: Beneficial to the Community

We are all part of a community, often we are part of several communities at the same time. We have our family, our friends, our coworkers, our neighbors and so on, and in each of those communities we have a role; a part to play so to speak. The Honeybee in today's cast reassures us that we are on the right track, socially speaking. We are a valued member of our groups and we are allowed to relaxe in our role. There is safety in numbers so let's enjoy the benefits of our groups.

Raven Coins not so Daily Cast: an Anouncement

My dear friends, today I embarked on a two month road trip through Norway.  I will try to publish my Daily Cast as often as I can, but chances are that this will not in fact be daily for which I apologize in advance.

Meanwhile I will record some of my adventures through Instagram at 'Raven Coins'. No filters, no glamour, just me trying not to get eaten by bears or wolves while traveling solo in my self-converted campervan.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1091: Be the Wisest

The Wise Woman together with the Nadir coin and the Opponent spells trouble; somebody thinks they know everything better than we do. Judgmental, competitive and maybe even a little bit vindictive, this person is trying to make us look bad and steal our thunder. Don't let them get away with it! We are wise in our own ways and we will stand our ground.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1090: Don't Isolate Yourself

We are good and we know it. In itself is this a good quality but let's not overdo it. When we become too self-confident it turns into arrogance and that might lead to alienation and consequently loneliness. So, let's get off our high horses an make sure we stay in touch with the rest of the world! A little bit of humility goes a long way.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1089: All In Moderation

It is so tempting to eat more than we need, to drink to excess or to gather a mountain of stuff we don't even know what to do with. Today's cast is warning us to take life's pleasures in moderation. So let us enjoy life to the fullest without stuffing our guts and our closets with stuff we don't need.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1088: Take Yourself Serious

Sometimes our ideas are dismissed by our surroundings as being mere fantasies and fairy tales. Sometimes we do a pretty good job dis-empowering us ourselves... Today we run the risk of doing just that, so let's make a resolve right here, right now; now matter how unusual the idea, we are going to take ourselves serious and take the time to look at our own creative processes without dismissing them right away. That in itself is a wholesome exercise for some of us!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1087: Mental Health

Part of a healthy lifestyle is adopting a healthy attitude. Not only to physical things, like taking enough time to exercise and preparing well-balanced meals, but maybe even more important, toward your mental health as well. When we give as much attention to habits that better our mental health as we do to our physical health, we become more flexible. Not just our body's; our minds as well, making us better equipped to deal with the day-to-day challenges of life. So let us be happy with what health we have got and playfully strive to improve on it.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1086: Friends & Family

Whatever it is we are contemplating to do today, it helps if we do it together with family or friends. The Raven Coins indicate it is a good day to spend in the company of loved ones and to strengthen our bonds with our community. It's good to have friends, it's better to actually be with them, so let's seek them out and spend some time together.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1085: Time for a Trip?

The Elf is eager to start something new. Enthusiastically he explores possibilities, gathers information and buys the necessary equipment. This new endeavor can be anything ranging from work-related project to moving to an new house to going on a trip. Given the time of year and my own state of mind this week, I think today's Daily Cast is about going on a trip or preparing for a long journey. Half the fun lies in the preparations, so let's enjoy this time of getting ready!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1084: Know Who You Are

Self-knowledge is a beautiful thing, especially if we are able to pair this with the wisdom of acceptance. That is what the Wise Man stands for in today's Daily Cast: He knows his strengths and he knows his weaknesses but neither of them is exciting to him anymore. It is what it is and that is good. There is no need for vanity nor for jalousie, the insecurity that comes from our attachment to those emotions is long gone. What is left is a general gentleness, both towards others as towards ourselves. Let's be content today!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1082: Lessons Learned

The Wise Man is about experience, about the fact that no matter how great the education we have received, some lessons are best learned through living them. This doesn't mean that we have to do all the groundwork ourselves; whenever we encounter an experienced person, we can benefit from the life experience they can offer us. The Daily Cast of today can also refer to an actual person that comes our way to help us out based on their experience. Let's gain some wisdom through experience today!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1081: Stop (S)Mothering

In principle it is noble and good to take care of your friends and family. To feed them, nurture them and love them unconditionally. However, we do need to understand that taking care of people if and when they are in need of such care, does give us the added responsibility to make sure that in time they will gain their independence back to as high a degree as possible. If our efforts are not aimed towards enhancing the autonomy of the person we are caring for we are not contributing to their life, but are we diminishing their agency. So for today the message is to seek out if we are smothering our loved ones or if we are suffering from somebody else's smothering. If we are, we need to end it. It's probably not ill-intended, just ill-understood, so let's be gentle about.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1080: Disentangle

There seems to be a lot going on at the moment. The best action to take whenever we get overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of stuff we have to deal with, is to withdraw ourselves from the center of it and to try and get past all the details we are involved in. What is the essence of the matter and how do we want to approach that? This advice is to be taken literally today; let's disentangle ourselves from all the chaos and take some time to find the thing it is we really want to address.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1079: Pause and Breathe

There is so much fun to be had in preparing for a future event that we might forget to firmly anchor that event in the now. When we go to fast we might end with failure. The message of today is; we've got to learn how to make use of pauses. To take some time, to breathe and regroup before we start running again. So let's slow down a little; tomorrow just has to wait until we are properly done with today.

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1078: Self-protection

In addition to yesterday's cast, in which we were cautioned not to let people take us for a fool, today's theme is about protecting our boundaries. The Father coin is here to help us with the task. This particular cast can sometimes be very literal in it's meaning, in which case it refers to an actual, benign father-figure in our lives that has made us feel safe and protected. In that case it might be a good idea to pay this person a visit if we can. Let us be thankful for every border that protects us and for the people that maintain them. And if nobody does the protecting for us; let's protect ourselves!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1077: Don't Be a Fool

Somebody doesn't seem to tell the truth. If we are sure that it is not us who are doing the deceiving (for in that case; let's stop it and turn to honesty), we need to be on our guard for deceivers. Whenever we hear a story we do not completely believe, we need to ask ourselves who stands to benefit by the narrative that is presented. It might reveal the source and motivation of the story so we can make an informed decision if we believe it or not. And, the old saying 'if it seems to good to be true it usually is' can guide us as well. Let's not be fooled!

Raven Coins Daily Cast - 1076: Gain Perspective

In every situation there are two distinct positions we can occupy: either we look at it up close, maybe even from the inside, or we take a step back and observe the issue from a distance. The cast of today urges us to do just that: to detach ourselves from the situation we are in to gain a better perspective. So let us find some high ground and find new input from up there.
