Page of Swords: Gaining Clarity

“Stop trying to think it all through and figure out all the potential avenues yourself. Leave that up to the Universe. Trying to map it all out is slowing you down.”

Damn it!

I’m talking to one of my Tarot people and realize, I’ve been giving out versions of this advice repeatedly lately. Whenever I notice that happening, I know that Tarot is also talking to me.

And the cards I drew for the weekly seem to be putting the punctuation right on this message.

Damn it.

This Week in Tarot: Getting Clearer

Good tarot page of air

Here we have the Page of Swords (or Page of Air) from the Good Tarot, along with Phlox from Botanical Inspirations.: Unanimity & Harmony. (I was going to say Phlox is one of my favorite flowers, but I realized: I always seem to say that. I do love ’em, though!)

This combination says good ideas are afoot. Clarity is within your grasp. You can easily receive inspiration now!

But honestly? I’d keep those ideas that are percolating primarily to myself. Let them develop and brew. The harmony you really want to reach for here, right now, is internal. Be of one mind about something and let your thoughts settle in before you start broadcasting your message.

I would not go looking for a broad agreement this week. I’d be looking for internal agreement. Don’t work on convincing other people in order to reassure yourself. Borrowed confidence never lasts very long anyway. Instead, be reaching for clarity. That’s never going to come from any place outside yourself. You may be inspired to clarity, from something you hear or see. But the click happens inside your head and inside your heart.

Once you are feeling the clarity, though? Sure, run your mouth as you like. Because by that point, you won’t really care what anyone else has to say about it. And in the case of tuning in to your own truth, not giving a damn about what anyone else has to say about it is a really good thing.

Are you in the process of getting clear?

If you need some help, give me a holler for a one-on-one session to assist you in sorting things out.

Strength: All in Your Head

Many associate strength with might–numbers, stature, ability to enforce. I know, that’s how the word is commonly used.

But I don’t think of strength that way at all.

I consider the trait of strength to be personal, individual. So it couldn’t be reliant on outside conditions (e.g. who is biggest) or firepower–it’s not “strength” to be holding the biggest gun. That’s a condition that can change, no doubt about it!

But an inner calmness, a solid rooting in what’s important to you, and holding fast to it? That’s strength, to me at least.

Strength doesn’t need others to agree. Insecurity does. Strength doesn’t need to justify or defend. That’s uncertainty. Strength doesn’t need to struggle, because strength isn’t fighting against anything.

Strength just stands tall, and sure, being true to self above all else.

Strength, from the Zombie Tarot. Because, October.

The “Zombie Protection” bullets here aren’t loaded into a gun. The biggest bullet is shown superimposed on the brain. Get that? Your brain is really your best protector.

Strength doesn’t come from the outside. Like everything else, it’s an inside job. Strength is just knowing, and holding steady to the knowing.

Strength is not measured in force. It's measured in steadiness. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

It’s a good time to harness your strength–call upon your sense of conviction, your beliefs about what’s right, your love for yourself and others to tap into that steady, solid, dependable stream of inner strength. A light touch is all you need–steady, light, sure. That’s the vibration of strength and it will serve you well not only next week.

What’s strength, to you?

Empress Reversed: Your Balance is Your Job

I’m looking to live a more self-centered life.

No, really.

I am looking to stay in my own skin, driving in my own lane, minding my own business and doing the best I personally can.

Minding my own energy.

Really, living an “other-centered” life is not possible anyway. You do what you do for what it gives you, even if what it is giving you right then is a good feeling.

But the less you try to back-seat drive other people’s cars, the better of you’re going to be.

Trying to modulate your behavior and approach to obtain what you want from others is trying to control the inherently uncontrollable. That’s a recipe for headaches, no?

We cannot know what another thinks. We cannot divine what another needs, especially from a universal/eternal perspective. We cannot walk in another’s shoes, much as we may look to understand. There is a limit because we’re individual beings having individual experiences, albeit together.

That doesn’t mean you’ll be lacking compassion. If you don’t feel the need to decide for the world and you don’t feel the need to make something happen and you don’t feel responsible for correcting anyone or any thing, you’re free to just let others be. You can be compassionate, or appreciate, or just will good for them. There are no strings.

Your job is your own balance. Everything else falls in line with that. Click To Tweet

I like living my life without strings. I can make my job one of loving and appreciating as much of this world as I can. I can focus on my expertise: being the best me, I know how to be.

Not my job to keep the world in balance. Just my job to keep me in balance.

How’s your sense of balance?

Hi. This is Dixie from A Fool’s Journey. I’m getting ready to take a look at what the vibe is doing right now, get a feel for what’s coming up in the next week. Hang on.

Got the Empress reversed. Let’s pull a clarification. Judgement reversed. Okay.

There’s a tendency to try and feel your way around what other people need. And try to…recalibrate your approach, your own needs, your own what-you-do, based on other people’s responses to it. Now, that pretty much never will serve you. And in this case, it’s specifically gonna get in the way of you taking care of yourself.

It’s gonna hamper your creativity. It’s going to interfere or diminish what you’re trying to make.

Just plug into what you’re trying to do. And let the rest of the world take care of itself. Now, that’s never bad advice. But this week, it’s gonna make a big difference both in how well your projects come out, but also in how well the creativity flows and how you feel.

Because quite frankly, it’s draining to try and tilt the world to keep everybody else in balance.

Your job is to keep YOU in balance! Let the rest of the world do their own job. Okay?

That’s my message for right now. I hope it’s helpful to you.

If you are not watching this on afoolsjourney.com, why not? Go check me out. I usually write a little bit extra there. And take care, peace out, have an awesome week! Okay? I’ll see you later.

Bye bye!

Mmmmmmmmmm. Peace out.

Luck in Disguise? Weekly Tarot, June 6, 2017

“Look at it this way,” I said. “A lot of times, what seems like a bad thing is actually the easiest, most direct route to a much better thing, that’s what you really want. It’s the best way to get where you really want to go.”

She liked that idea. It offers relief, during a difficult transition. But I didn’t say it to pass out some soft, squishy, and unrealistic reprieve from her worries.

I said it because it’s true.

Trainwrecks and chaos are the price we pay for quantum leaping. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Sometimes, what we want is hiding around the corner, sitting right behind what we think we want. And sometimes, we are the only thing standing in our way. (And by sometimes, I mean always.)

Let go of the form and just feel your way through. And keep reminding yourself, you don’t need to call “righteous” or “suckage” in the middle of anything.  Or ever, really.

If you want to pave the way for your luck to feel good, invoke the magickal elixir of appreciation. There’s always something worth shining a happy light on, even if it’s being overshadowed by something you don’t like. Especially if it’s being overshadowed by something you don’t like! Because then is when you need it most.

If you shift your attitude, make yourself a little like the farmer in that Buddhist parable? You can make shifts.

In it, he asks over and over, “Who knows what’s good or bad?” But that’s a trick question. Everything is both good and bad–they’re different sides of the same coin.  It’s not the experiences are good or bad. It’s how you think about them, that determines how you feel about them. You want a happy life? Start learning to see through a happier lens and you move yourself into the flow.

And if we’re not looking to give life a letter grade, instead just taking it as it comes…well, it all goes down WAY easier. Luck can find you because you’re not too busy squirming.

I dig way easier. Don’t you? 

This week’s forecast features the Mini Radiant Rider Waite. My Bulk-Time Tarot Experiment seems to be winding down, so I’m calling this the last call. If you want to schedule any time at $50/hour, just shoot me a Paypal and you’ll have on account, to use whenever or however you want. Minimum of one hour for this deal, please.

Let it die…Tarot, Week of 5/15/17

The Death card is associated with Scorpio. I have no issues with Scorpio–he’s a player in my own chart and I have mad respect for his willingness to get his hands dirty, you know? He’s REAL and he goes full in. He does the dirty jobs that need doing and he does them well. What’s more, his skill with rooting around in the energetic muck and cleaning it out means something fresh can grow there. In removing that rot, the soil becomes ready for new life.

And that IS a beautiful thing, even if the process itself is not very tidy.

I am feeling and seeing this energy quite clearly right now, so I suspect many of y’all are as well. This week, I’m going to be looking to focus on where I’m going and not the old news of where I’ve been. I’d suggest the same for you.

Look to where you're going, not where you've been. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

I seldom-to-almost never offer discounts on readings. But I want to try something new…SO, if you want some Tarot action, right now I’m offering bulk session time at $50/hour, that you can break up however you want and use whenever you want. This is basically half off my normal rate, or a little more if you tend to get shorter readings. It’s especially nice for my regular folks or someone who would like to work with me as affordably as possible.

Just Paypal me here here for how many ever hours you’d like to set aside, and I’ll mark you down. For this deal, it’s a minimum of one hour ($50), please. Then when you want to use it, let me know!

Hey, this is Dix from A Fool’s Journey. I’ve got another micro forecast for you this week. With the Gilded Tarot. So stay tuned.

Howdy, this is Dix with A Fool’s Journey. I’m just gonna pull a card, a single card, and see where we go from there.

Oh geez. Ugggghhh. I got death!

What do I want to say about death?

Things begin, things end. A lot of times, an ending is, well, always in my opinion, but, generally speaking, an ending is part of a new beginning. And once things hit critical mass, you know, if it’s gonna blow, it’s gonna blow.

So you can feel however you wanna feel about it, but understand that the endings are just as necessary, if not more so, for moving forward, as the beginnings. Endings are important, too.

And sometimes they’re scratchy or, or raw. Or uncomfortable. But almost always, there’s a cleansing that comes with it and things are better for having gone through that transformational process.

Because the, it has to die before it can be resurrected. You know? Before something new can grow in it’s place. So you might see some of that this coming week. If it’s uncomfortable, I’m really sorry. But remember that it’s just part of the natural order of things and in the long run, it’s all okay.

I hope that’s helpful to you or interesting or whatever. If it is, let me know! Otherwise, just have a great week, take care. Peace out from the Goddess. Mmmmmm. Bye bye.

Cats. Please. [snap] Ohhhhh. Stop! Cats. They’re worse than kids…


Are you seeing Death energy in your world? (I am.)

This week’s forecast features the Gilded Tarot. If you dig the insight, consider a 1-on-1 with Dix.

Refined Approach: Weekly Tarot, May 8-14, 2017

I’m going to cut to the chase this week and let this (brief) video do the talking. Transcript below.

Transcript from the Video

Howdy! This is Dix from A Fool’s Journey. I’m just gonna do a quick [snap] to the point check in for next week. Okay?

Stay tuned.

Howdy, this is Dix from A Fool’s Journey. I’ve got my Tarot deck. I’m gonna pull one card and [snap] riff on it and just get right to the point.

Nine of Pentacles. Wanna tell you to be refined. Not, you know, not stick your pinky finger out when you drink your tea. Graceful. Kind. Understanding. Take a broader perspective.

My sense is that there’s a lot for you to watch if you’re not trying to jump in there and control other people or run the world or decide what’s right or wrong. Look at everything that comes up like a learning experience. Or like a potential, a potential education for you. Way to open your eyes.

And you’ll make the most of the week. Hope that’s helpful for ya! If it is, let me know. If not, okay. Maybe next time! Take care, peace out, bye bye!

Mmmmmm.

Excuse me. That’s the sound of the cats. Tttttooo-tooo-tooo. Ohhhhhh. Cats! Can you not do that? They’re worse than kids.

This week’s forecast features the Gilded Tarot. Hit me up for a 1-on-1, if you’re so inclined or check out my book, Everyday Tarot Archives. And peace out.
