I have been assigned to sit in the Mojave Desert and record what’s known as, the Event which occurs between sunrise and sunset. There are others assigned to my team though we are located in different regions of the World. We stay connected through a hologram projection. While the Solstice isn’t implied, there’s anticipation around witnessing an annual shift in the light.
As I sit in wait, I see a large snake on the horizon and realize that she too is waiting for the event. Upon this realization the sun begins to set and with it I witness the green flash, which in my dream indicates the start of the Event.
I notice that the snake is moving four pieces of the sun within the curves of her body. Each piece is a burning aspect of her body, mind, heart and spirit that seek the light from the Event. I understand that in the moment of the green flash she will offer these aspects of light to the Event in exchange for renewal. End of dream.
Over the years I’ve learned to treat my dreams as I do tarot imagery. Each symbol acts as an important message that’s customized to fit my situation. I make a point to highlight these key elements in my journal and then define them as symbols to live by. After this I conclude with a synopsis of the dream.
Assignment: My purpose.
Mojave: Mojave translates as, beside the water (water to me represents emotion). Near, though detached from emotion.
Team/World locations: Larger community. Like minded community.
Event: A special occasion.
Hologram Connection: Communicating through visual means.
Desert: A vast, arid environment. Clarity. Honesty.
Sunrise/set/Solstice: Celestial influence.
Green Flash: A rare opportunity/phenomenon. A flash in time energized by the color green (my favorite color).
Four motif: Structure, stability in body, mind, heart and spirit. Totality.
Burning Sun: Vital, sustaining energy. Fuel.
Snake holding/offering the Sun: Supporting the transformational event in the physical. Renewal.
Offer your purpose to your greater community being mindful that you don’t get too emotionally attached to the outcome. Incorporate the celestial movement of the heavens while reporting a clear and honest perspective of what you see. In return you will gain vital energy and stability in body, mind, heart and spirit. Here lies the opportunity for renewal and transformation.
After recording my dream I went to work on understanding it through collage. While adding the fourth sun to canvas, I realized the following image could also work as a casting sheet— one that invites diviners to connect with their transforming light by giving focus to their purpose. Here’s how it works.

If this is your first time to visit my site, welcome! Please detour here if you wish to learn more about casting sheets and the art of casting with the Lenormand Revolution or Magpie Oracle collection. The majority of my posts present casting opportunities, however they are not limited to my products. With a little creativity, just about any divination system will work. Go with the tool that speaks to your heart. And now, back to casting.
It’s clear that the above dream points to what I’m aligning with in terms of my purpose. It also nods to a workshop I’m preparing to give called, Embodied Divination, where attendees are taken on a sacred pilgrimage to connect with their creative drive. I’ve been committed to giving structure to my purpose since the Summer Solstice and have made it a daily practice to acknowledge that commitment through outlets that bring it to Earth like art, writing and work.
One of the biggest challenges with staying purpose-focused is learning when and how to say, Thank you, but no thank you to the onslaught of distractions that interrupt my aim. Are you familiar with this experience? Have you met the multitude of beautiful distractions that pull you away from your vision? You’re not alone.
The goal of this casting sheet is to help you build awareness around what your distractions are preventing you from achieving. Begin by focusing on what your purpose is and then make a mental list of the distractions that lead you astray from that purpose. Locate and enlist the part of yourself that knows how to resist interruptions. Let’s get started.
Randomly select four Magpie Oracle charms or divination cards for each of the following categories. You may also cast your charms over the casting sheet. Where they land will determine the divination. Follow their lead.
Charm 1: This is what will bring structure to the physical aspect of my purpose.
Charm 2: This is the distraction I am saying no to in my physical environment.
Charm 3: This is what I will gain in the physical from saying, Thank you, but no thank you.
Charm 4: This is the vital transformation that’s burning to happen in my physical environment when I am distraction free.
Charm 1: This is what will bring structure to the mental aspect of my purpose.
Charm 2: This is the mental distraction I am saying no to.
Charm 3: This is the mental gain I will experience from saying, Thank you, but no thank you.
Charm 4: This is the vital transformation that’s burning to happen in my mind when I am distraction free.
Charm 1: This is what will bring structure to the emotional aspect of my purpose.
Charm 2: This is the emotional distraction I am saying no to.
Charm 3: This is the emotional gain I will experience from saying, Thank you, but no thank you.
Charm 4: This is the vital transformation that’s burning to happen in my heart when I am distraction free.
Charm 1: This is what will bring structure to the spiritual aspect of my purpose.
Charm 2: This is the spiritual distraction I am saying no to.
Charm 3: This is the spiritual gain I will experience from saying, Thank you, but no thank you.
Charm 4: This is the vital transformation that’s burning to happen in my spirit when I am distraction free.
To maintain your distraction-free outlook, keep your divination out, or take a photo of it and place it somewhere where you will give it daily attention. Return to it often or whenever your favorite distraction shows up.
As always, may your future follow your highest wishes. Merry Solstice, Diviner!
