Wheel of Fortune Rx: Make Your Own Luck Already!

The world has been scratchy as Hell. 2020 has been a year like no other in providing justification for pretty much any emotional reaction imaginable. 

I was feeling this yesterday. Anxious, itchy and irritable, not really sure what to do with all the pent-up and bothered energy that was building up.

What would help?

I remembered my fourth house Mars. Mars rules not only anger, but drive and initiative. Mars will dictate you go about getting what you want. And if you’re feeling frustrated or otherwise unfulfilled, the placement of Mars can provide inspiration about how to release the frustration. Fourth house rules home life.

So I cleaned. I may not be able to clean up the chaos in the world, but I can certainly lessen the chaos in my tiny corner.

And yes, it made me feel much better. The cats’ confusion also amused me, so bonus points.

Next week might be a good time to clean your house (or whatever your Mars prescribes).

Next Week in Tarot

For outlook, we have the Wheel of Fortune reversed, with advice from the Ace of Pentacles. Pictured from the Radiant Rider-Waite.

Now I usually read the Wheel as positive, even reversed. Here, I want to say your luck is nothing more complicated than what you make of what you’ve got. It’s not how it looks. It’s not about whether or not it was what you wanted.

It’s all about what you do with whatever you’ve got.

Rather than bemoaning the current circumstances, turn it all to your advantage by asking yourself, “What do I want to create out of this?” Creating something from whatever lies before you is exactly what the Ace of Pentacles would suggest.

Concrete, real-world manifestations are the order of the week. If you cannot control the world, control your corner of it. If a situation ends, start something new. Make something beautiful out of what you’ve got. Transformation will provide both relief and tangible benefit here.

Don’t look to save the world on this wave, friends. Instead, let whatever captures your attention to inspire you to create something you actually want. The Ace of Pentacles wouldn’t have you burning anything down without the vaguest notion of how to replace it. This ace will always have you building something new. As an ace, the results may be humble, but no matter what, they will be REAL and worth doing. 

What can you make out of what you’ve got? That’s the question to bear in mind next week. It will guide you to constructive action. 

Good luck!

And if you want to talk about it in a private session, give me a holler and we’ll set something up.

Queen of Pents: (Still) Being the Change

Sometimes, it’s challenging to take your own damn advice. Don’t you just hate that?

Stay in your own lane. Keep the faith. Avoid judging. Back to center. Stability before all else. Feel your way forward. Act only from love. Hand it over to the Universe. It’s not your job to manage the world. It’s your job to be the true to who you are. Live the change(s) you want to see.

These are the sorts of thoughts I share here regularly and they aren’t just pretty-sounding words for me. They are deep, heartfelt intentions. They represent how I mean to live every day of my life.

So imagine my chagrin at finding myself feeling agitated, drawn to doing just the opposite of what I believe and preach on a day-in, day-out basis. Oy!

Now, I’ve done pretty well in exercising self-control. Thank the Gods! It saves me from a lot of trouble, to be frank. I’ll never try to push someone else into being me. Beyond the fact I believe that effort to be morally wrong, it simply doesn’t work very well.

Good people come from an infinite variety of backgrounds and experiences. This suggests they will also have an infinite variety of perspectives. While I enjoy exposure to new perspectives, some will naturally be a good fit while others simply won’t. That means absolutely nothing big picture, as far as I’m concerned. To others, perhaps it does. I’m not about to live my life according to the definitions of others. I’ve made a lot of hard choices in my life to walk my own path and I consider it a sacred responsibility to do just that.

I can say I’ve been the recipient of social pressure from people believing they were acting in my best interests. Knowing what it’s like, I’ll never do it to someone else. Strong enough threats may garner superficial compliance, but that’s not persuasion. It’s fear. Fear only goes as far as the threat reaches, for as long as an individual continues to care about the threat more than they value personal freedom. Whether or not it “works,” relationships subjected to this process can be damaged ways that may not ever completely heal. It’s not something I would take lightly.

I care about the people in my life more than I care about being right, either subjectively or objectively. I’ve been reminding myself of this on a daily basis. Remembering this has been very helpful in maintaining those aforementioned intentions.

If you want to see change in the world (or more specifically, change in YOUR world) there is only one reliable way I see to ensure it: live that change. Let the change you want permeate your heart, mind and soul. It becomes your world front and center because it IS your life.

You’ll get your chance in the coming week to do just that, if you’re so inclined.

Next Week in Tarot

Outlook for the coming week is the Queen of Pentacles upright (nice!) with advice as the reversed Ace of Pentacles. More info provided by the reversed Nine of Cups–I wanted to double check myself on the advice and this card did the trick. These beautiful cards are from my well-worn Legacy of the Divine deck.

I love this deck, and find this incarnation of the Queen particularly stunning. She practically oozes fertility and abundance, from the rich green color scheme to the statement-piece flower pendant and even the lovely blooms on her dress. The glow from the third eye suggests a deep level of inner knowing. She understands the cycle of growth on an intuitive level. She knows what’s growing. She vibrates the change she wishes to see.

In terms of action steps–make plans now, not moves. The reversed Ace of Pentacles says it’s time to start envisioning what comes next. Action steps are close. That Ace wouldn’t show up otherwise, but not quite there.

The reversed Nine of Cups reinforces the idea: the timing isn’t quite perfect (yet), but close. Evision your perfect scenario, not bothering so much about the “how” part. Just look for hints and pieces of it to offer itself to you. You won’t see the entire path–we never do. Instead, you’ll see the next logical step as it comes into great focus. I’m expect that next step to be a little foggy next week, but you should start getting a whiff of it nonetheless.

Take heart. See the world around you as growing and evolving and know you’ll have a concrete place in it. Look to make sure YOU are on your path and let the Universe work the rest out. It does, like magick.


If you’d like a personal consult, give me a holler. We’ll sort out what YOUR intentions are all about.

Ace of Pentacles: Taking Shape

One of the reasons the older, wiser me pulls back in assuming motivation for behaviors came from recognizing how often those assumptions are completely off-base.

Human beings are fabulously complicated creatures. An endless assortment of thoughts, beliefs and perceptions stream through an individual’s consciousness. Personal definition of reality is unavoidably colored by past experience and current state of mind. So how on Earth could I realistically expect to figure this out for someone else? I can barely do so for myself!

I may have ideas or suspicions. And some of those might even be right. Fair enough.

But I care a whole lot less about being right than being happy. So every time I can manage it, I opt to assume the best. I look for the explanations that I am happiest with. I don’t care if my guesstimations are right or not. I just care if I end up feeling better or not. My job is to take care of my own energy–nobody else’s.

The past few weeks have featured a widespread tension, with the overall atmosphere feeling more and more wound up. It was less about agreed-upon reality than about the perception.

But next week, I’m expecting we’ll start seeing more concrete manifestations taking shape, not just feelings.

We can assume whatever we like about what it all means when we see things taking form. A certain amount of evaluation is unavoidable. But I think it would be wise to stand back and not think too hard on it all. The picture is very far from clear yet.

Next Week in Tarot

For outlook, we’ve got the Ace of Pentacles and advice is the reversed Ace of Swords, from the Radiant Mini Rider-Waite deck.

You can listen to a very brief audio version of this forecast here: Tarot Forecast Week of 12/30/19 .

Expect to see actual movement in the real world, as in undeniable physical manifestations beginning to appear from some of the energy that’s just been felt in the past couple of weeks. I’m seeing this largely as a time when obstacles are becoming more obvious, in particular.

So if you get started on something and find problems coming up? Those problems are doing you a favor! They are helping you address what needs to be mastered.

Don’t overthink it, obsess about it or otherwise expect to control anything. It’s not that far along yet. It’s all very new, just getting started. Take note and step back from the situation a little. There’s a real need for perspective that may not be easy to come by initially.

And do your best to bless whatever you see–whether you consider it good or bad.

It’s all necessary. It’s all right. And it’s all right now, just getting started. Are you ready to roll? 


Last call for the Holiday Special: I’m finishing up the 2020 Look-Ahead Zodiac readings ($40). I’m doing these audio file + email summary. If you want one to take a peek at what’s coming up for you next year, shoot me a payment and mention if you have a specific area of life you’d like to shine a little extra light on so I can make sure I get what you’re looking for here.

And Happy New Year to you all!

Ace of Pentacles: Watering the Right Seeds

Everything you do starts with the tiniest of seeds. The 50 year marraige starts with a first day. The child–well, you know what that starts with. The new lease on life begins with a single idea. When you focus on it, you get inspiration. And when you act on that inspiration, you’re watering the seed.

Getting Real This Week

This week’s Tarot gives us the Ace of Pentacles (or Earth, as depicted in the Good Tarot) teams up with the Anemone flower, associated with “Anticipation” from the Botanical Inspirations deck.

Anytime you’re in the suit of Earth, you’re talking real-world manifestations. With the Ace, however, that manifestation is very new, like a young seedling just starting out. It’s baby energy! It’s a new project, a new direction, a new venture just getting underway.

These cards advise us to begin taking small, deliberate (and hopefully, inspired) steps now in line with our goals and what’s more? Expect those steps to work out.

“Don’t create problems you don’t have in your head.” That’s what I tell friends and Tarot folks alike, with regularity. Sometimes, I tell myself, too.

But the other side of that advice-coin is, “Create success in your head!”

Anticipate good outcomes. Even if the process doesn’t look like a good outcome to you quite yet, keep solid in the faith everything is working out in perfect order. This is the energetic equivalent of getting out of your own way so you can see as the Universe unfolds a path before you. That sounds so simple, doesn’t it? It sounds too simple to work. And yet, it does.

The discipline required isn’t that of forcing outer circumstances to bend. The discipline is in lining up your own thought processes. It’s very easy to tell how well you’re lined up with what you want. Look at your emotions for cues. If it feels good, you’re more lined up! If it feels bad, not so much. Take a break. Get off the subject. Talk yourself down or distract yourself, whichever is quicker and easier.

Just whatever you do, don’t bother trying to resolve a problem to make yourself feel better. Get yourself feeling better, and then you’ll be in the position to receive inspired solutions.

There is a world of difference between what an individual can come up with when mired in a state of stress or panic versus what the Universe hands out freely to those open and receptive to divine inspiration. You may be able to make progress hammering it out, but it’s going to be slow and painful. Solutions from inspiration win every single time!

Expect your life to work. Expect everything to turn out. Expect yourself to figure it out along the way. Looking for evidence of progress will always serve you better than looking for disaster. It does require faith, but it needn’t be blind faith. Test it out for yourself, starting with subjects that are less intense for you. Play around with small ideas, small desires, those that you can hold lightly and without a lot of angst. Prove to yourself it works by watching it in action. Then, as bigger issues capture your attention, it’s easier to use the same methods.

This is exactly how you take a seed and grow it. Whatever your most active, intense focus is what you’re on the fast-track for making real.  You get to decide which seed you’re watering here. The seed of disaster, or the seed of progress? It’s up to you.

Which seeds are you watering? For a little support getting on track, holler at me for a 1-on-1.

Ace of Pentacles: Secrets to Success

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.” -Joseph Campbell

I used to watch interviews sometimes, with outrageously successful people talking about the secrets of their success. Yes, I was looking for tips! Insights I could utilize myself.

Because I already knew I am wicked smart and creative and I wanted to understand, what do they have going on that I did not? I wanted some of that.

And I often got annoyed at the advice I heard.

“Follow your heart. Dream big. Don’t let anyone else tell you what you can or cannot do. Take a chance. Listen to your gut.”

Sure, they seemed sincere and were clearly trying to help. But really, how do you do this? I wasn’t able to hear what they were saying about focusing on what they wanted, because I was very much focused on what I was missing. You can’t feel your way to what you want when you’re energy is fully engaged with obsessing over not having it.

The Ace of Pentacles from the Psychic Heart Tarot is “Strengthening Bonds.” Add to that Sweet Pea from the Botanical Inspirations deck, and we’ve got “Blissful Pleasure.” Merry Christmas!

Our job isn’t to sort the world into righteousness and sin. I mean, you could do that if you wanted to. But oy, what a thankless, unpleasant and generally unrewarding task. Not to mention how it’s never done.

I prefer another option. I’ve made it my job is to find my own, personal righteousness–living, breathing, and simply being in a way that feels like the best way to live. And there are perks.

Then, the appropriate connections show up. The support appears. No need to go seeking. No need to toil and fuss and fight and scheme a way through to an end result. No split energy, and no mixed feelings. No mental wrestling over what might go wrong or what’s not going right or when, how, and wherefore all of this might work out.

What you need just shows up. On cue, as you let it in. It takes a light touch and a shot of faith to hit that sweet spot but man, when you do? It’s so much easier and so much more fun. You manage to get out of your own way.

[bctt tweet=”Appreciation is how you get out of your own way. #OnMyRadar” via=”no”]

Pentacles are real-world, physical manifestation. The Ace is the seed, the beginning of physical manifestation. This week, try to let go of everything that doesn’t please you. You don’t have to worry or wrestle anything into shape. You just have to feel your way through it, following that bliss, those good-feeling emotions, looking at what pleases you merely because it pleases you. In that state, the action you take will be inspired (and therefore, effective).

That is enough. And if you try this as an experiment even for a few days, you’ll see just what I’m talking about.

Armchair Astrology

Mercury is direct! So the kinks we’ve seen over the last few weeks when Mercury was retrograde should all be at least in the process of unkinking. Expect issues surrounding communications in particular to go smoother.

We’ve also got some serious astrological action in Capricorn at the moment. That translates to responsibility: doing the right thing, best you can, and being a grown up about it. Goals are more achievable with a step-by-step approach. Capricorn season isn’t just a time to do you work–with Venus in Capricorn, you’ll be rewarded most if you can find ways to LOVE your work. So set about identifying lots to appreciate about your own productive projects to see them blossom. This isn’t an all-at-once thing. It’s a step-by-step and love-every-step thing, for the best outcome.

Zodiac Look-Ahead Readings

I’ve had a lot of fun doing the 2018 Look-Ahead readings this year. As the season is drawing to a close, I’m doing a last call. If you’d like an extensive peek at what to expect next year, order one by sending $50 Paypal and letting me know if you have any areas of special interest and I’ll get you fixed right up with an email summary reading, pictures of your cards and a full-length mp3 with all the details!

Merry Christmas to all my friends and best wishes for a successful 2018! 

Energy Budget: Weekly Tarot, Feb 27 – Mar 5, 2017

I spend a good amount of time on social media for business. It’s goal-driven participation, but you know how that is. So much of everything there…

Oh my God, I hide so much!

It’s daily. Lots and lots and lots gets hidden or blocked. And not because there is thing one wrong with what I’m hiding. People can discuss whatever it is they want to discuss and feel about it however they want to feel about it. I am genuinely egotistical, but not so much I think I’ve cornered the market on truth or perspective. I would never want to impinge upon the freedom of others! But that doesn’t mean I have to be a participant in all of it, either.

It’s just really important to me, how I feel. I consider how I feel THE top priority in my life. It’s my job to feel as good as I can, as much of the time as I can. And to that ends, I won’t become mired in lengthy discussion of issues that are upsetting to me.

Does such avoidance make me selfish, uninformed, deluded, privileged, or otherwise derelict in my social responsibilities?

Maybe. I know for a fact, there are kind-hearted, loving people who deem it so–and that, too, is their right. Don’t care, if you want to know the God’s-to-honest truth. I love y’all but I’ve gotta make decisions for myself. Some people feel that fighting what they perceive as wrong is the only way to impact change. If that’s what you believe, then you should do that! Always do what you feel is right and I wish you well in doing it.

For me, I believe being the best person I know how to be is my greatest opportunity to contribute. So I’m doing that.

This week? People may benefit from a less direct approach across the board, too–more water, less rock. At least, consider stepping back until you’re feeling utterly stable in your own skin. Impulsiveness or brashly powering through barriers is not favored.

[bctt tweet=”Be more water, less rock. Weekly #Tarot Forecast” via=”no”]

Tarot foretells a week that remains somewhat squishy, with a mix of primarily Cups, Pentacles and peppered with some Major Arcana. We start out rough–eclipse hangover, perchance? But by the weekend (provided you played your cards right), it’s looking pretty sweet.

Overall, I keep getting themes of budgeting energy expenditures. Don’t spend what you don’t have to freely spend on any level, and prioritize managing your emotional state. That is something you ARE in charge of!  I’ll take it, ’cause really, what choice do I have anywho?

View the Full Forecast in video, here.

I liked the Queen of Swords advice last week to hit the bullet points, so I’m running with it.

Day-by-Day-Play-by-Play

  • Monday, Queen of Pentacles rx: Mind your resources and don’t spend more than what you’ve got of whatever it is.
  • Tuesday, Knight of Cups rx: Hold off with emotional dumping messages. Highly sensitive time in general and strong possibility you’ll be misheard if you communicate impulsively.
  • Wednesday, Six of Pentacles rx: Take care of your own business. Don’t hop in to try and fix for others. No charity work.
  • Thursday, Ace of Pentacles rx: Lowish energy. Don’t overspend, anything, again.
  • Friday, The Tower: Choices earlier in the week culminate. If you overdid, it will fall apart today. If you showed restraint, the crashes won’t be yours.
  • Saturday, The Chariot: Single-minded focus on what you care about, and forget the rest. Simple.
  • Sunday, Two of Cups: Great date night. Expect peace, harmony and music. Good flow today.
  • Overview/Advice, Six of Wands: It may not be obvious, but it’s all working out in the bigger picture. Appreciate what’s working and let everything else be.
  • Affirmation: Loss. Focus on what you’ve got, not what you don’t. It’s your choice, what you make bigger in your life.

Are you able to “mind your own emotional store” easily? What helps you?
