Fog off the Mirror: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 8 – 14

Weekly Flow Tarot, June 8 -14, 2015

Is anybody besides me ready to do a jig of happiness over Mercury retro ending?

Lordy, lordy. This retrograde round has brutal from my seat anyway–enough that I barely noticed the full moon in Sagittarius we just had, and it’s hard to miss the largeness of a full moon Sagittarius. I was literally pushing myself to the limits to take care of business.

This retrograde also has featured elements of emotional clearing that has surprised me, considering it went  down in Gemini, an airy, intellectual sign. I guess that makes it possible for more detachment than usual; easier to clean house that way. As Mercury stations midweek, we’ll be on the final stages of the emotional clearing bout, and not a moment too soon if you ask me.

But I shouldn’t bitch. After all, we get what when need to get when we need it. This week, looks to be plenty of that.

Monday, The Waiting Game – Seven of Wands: Don’t wait for others to back you up on what you know is right. You may have to fight the tide a while before expecting acknowledgement, let alone buy-in. I don’t care if you’re doing your solo while the chorus is singing an entirely different song. Stay on YOUR page, don’t deviate, and let the world catch up…or not.

Tuesday, Partnerships & Alliances – Ace of Pentacles reversed: Is the money an unspoken issue in a partnership? Is there secret resentment over workload distribution? Look to practical, physical concerns in partnerships. This could be a simple as who does the dishes. Or not. But be aware of very tangible issues planting the smallest seed of discontent in partnerships. Go out of your way to be not only fair, but generous as well. It’s worth it, isn’t it? Also note: if you hear your brain saying, “It’s the principle of the thing…” look at that topic very closely because it’s a potential issue waiting to blossom.

Wednesday, Heartache & Loss – Eight of Cups reversed: That pain? It’s from not letting go completely. Accept what’s gone is gone, and let yourself feel the loss. You don’t have to nurse the hurt, just allow it to be so it can flow through you, you know? Only then will you be able to move on, clean and clear.

Thursday, Movement, Choices Decisions – Three of Pentacles reversed: Plan in pencil. Fast-thinking and flexibility is your friend. Yes, you want to map out what you’re doing, sure. Just be ready for some fast footwork once projects get underway. You may need to reconfigure your route. Stay frosty out there, friends!

Friday, Power – Ten of Cups: Ahhhh! The strength and joy that comes in the form of a loving family–and here, I mean your emotional family, whether they are blood-bonded to you or not. Those people that love you can fill your heart and give you rest, solace and the drive to go on. Appreciate the Hell out of them, why don’t you?

Overview/Advice – Page of Pentacles: Be clear, direct and decisive with both communication and action this week. Make sure your behavior matches your objectives. While you’ll be called upon to remain flexible, you will not be called on to be ambiguous. That is a meaningful distinction. In fact, a lot of the energy this week looks to be aimed at minimizing ambiguities and confusion. I’m seeing someone wiping the fog off a mirror to get a better view. This week, you will have the ability to clear some fog off the mirror. The bonus with a clear mirror is that you also get to see who is behind you.

Affirmation, Divine Order – Archangel Raguel: “Everything is how it needs to be right now. Look past the illusion, and see the underlying order.” We are where we are for a reason, no? What looks like a mess, close up and in the middle, can be–okay, generally is–part of a bigger picture. Even legitmate messes don’t just “happen.” They are there for a reason. Whether or not they serve a purpose, however, is our choice.

How’s your week looking?

Sorting: Weekly Forecast, Apr 20 – 26

Tarot ForecastLast week, we were cleaning out closets. This week? It’s sorting through the ensuing mess.

You know how it is. The mess gets bigger before it gets smaller. 

When you clean your closet, you take the time to notice what’s what’s really buried in there, and examine each piece of clothing. And for each one you decide, “Is this something I want to keep in my life? Does it fit in with the rest of my wardrobe?”

This week, we’re sorting through “life accessories” – the attitudes, the people, the situations, behaviors and beliefs we’ve long owned. To be successful, you’re going to need to be honest, both with others but firstly, especially, with yourself. Because if you try to pull something over on yourself this week, it’s basically 50/50 you’ll be called out and have to face the truth with an audience. Eeek!

Lots of court cards showed up, which tells me people and their personalities are central to the week’s shuffle. Even many of the topical cards are strongly associated with relationships and groups. So the folks that put out the extra effort to play nice with others will have a distinct advantage the coming week.

Monday, Power – King of Wands: This looks like a solid, on-top-of-it kind of day. I’d say, use any powered-up feeling to it’s best advantage and move, step by step, to take care of business.

Tuesday, Disruption – The Empress Reversed: Beware put-on, exaggerated or phoney caretaking gestures. Overly-parental behavior, out of it’s appropriate context, is disruptive. The “it’s all for you” ruse will be transparent today. So don’t try it yourself!

Wednesday, Partnerships & Alliances (Sacral Chakra)- Temperance Reversed: It’s fine to get together with friends or discuss business over dinner or drinks. Enjoy yourself, but within moderation no matter what you’re indulging in. Okay?

Thursday, Heartache and Loss – Page of Swords Reversed: Bluntness can be hurtful and lead to actual loss or breakups if not kept in check.

Friday, Spiritual Strength – Queen of Pentacles, Reversed: Make sure you take care of yourself. This looks like running on fumes.

Saturday, The Waiting Game –Ten of Pentacles: Gradually work toward that whole package, okay? Cultivate the family relationships (and situations) that you want. Above all, APPRECIATE the family blessings you already have! Gratitude pays dividends. This can be impatience to reach a destination, sure…but with the proper framing, it can just as easily be contentment with a pleasant form of the journey.

Sunday, Trapped in Fear (Crown Chakra) – Ten of Swords: Too much incoming stimulation! This would be a great time to ground, disconnect from highly emotive people or situations, and shut down right now.

Overview/Advice – Page of Wands Reversed: Mind your tongue and don’t overstate or exaggerate yourself because this week? It’s like broadcasting it. Restraint can be your keyword.

Affirmation, Clear your Space – Archangel Jophiel: “Get rid of clutter, clear the energy around you and use feng shui.” Those life accessories that don’t match your soul any more? Trash ’em. You don’t need it.

Are you “sorting” now?

Choose Peace. Weekly Tarot Flow, Mar 30 – Apr 5

I’ve had a really, really difficult time getting this forecast written. My blogging software has eaten it multiple times now. The browser even crashed when I started to write it online. Makes me kind of wonder.

Is that an omen?

BooBut I’m really trying. And I’m not giving up. That’s kind of what I’m expect it’s going to take for success this week. It’s been a really long time since I’ve seen this many inverted cards, folks. Seven out of eight Tarot cards agree, it’s not going to be a smooth-flowing week. Not that I equate that with bad. I just think it’s best to be up-front here, you know?

And of course, we’ve got a Blood moon this week, a full lunar eclipse coming up April 4th, in Libra. It’s hitting my chart and I’m not sure what to expect exactly–hello, we’re talking eclipse! But it’s part of a cycle of full lunar eclipses (called a tetrad) that started back April 15, 2014, also in Libra. So you might want to think back to that time, not so much exactly what was happening then, but perhaps the processes, the changes that began around that time. This is the third in the cycle, with the final one being Sept. 27, 2015 in Scorpio.

Just a little something to be aware of.

In terms of the week coming up…I pulled cards from the Psychic Tarot Oracle to give us the topical realm, and pulled from the Tarot Nova for the forecasting bit.

Tarot-March-30-April-5-Forecast

Monday, Positive Movement Forward – The Star: Well, this is a very optimistic start for the week! I would not be surprised to hear some encouraging news or hopeful signs. Yay! Make the most out of this, folks.

Tuesday, Mental Conflict – Six of Pentacles reversed: How much generosity is appropriate? Pay your own bills before picking up someone else’s tab. It’s helpful to remember which problems are legitimately your own to solve and judge what you can offer while still feeling joyful.  Another way this energy to could materialize is in the question, how much can you overlook? I’m inclined to suggest “benefit of a doubt,” provided that option won’t put you in a perilous position. Realize that objectively “knowing” another’s motivations isn’t always important. Sometimes, we may choose to assume the best simply because it’ doesn’t cost us to do so, and we’re happier that way. Be pragmatic and assume the best if it doesn’t cost you to do so.

Wednesday, the Universe – Wheel of Fortune reversed: If it looks like bad luck, try to consider it in a broader context. Don’t let the little picture get you down, because the little picture changes frequently and quickly. Don’t think, “I cannot take any more trees falling on me!” Think, “This forest path is lovely.” Or something along those lines.

Thursday, Choose Wisely – Nine of Wands reversed: Do not be stubborn for the sake of winning. Be stubborn if it’s important to you, really matters. Let it go if not. If you hear yourself saying anything about “the principle of the thing,” you may want to reconsider. Is the principle in play pride?

Friday, Love Begins – The Hermit reversed: Do not stand on tradition today. And do not isolate. Open up your heart, and act accordingly. Be very genuine, even if (especially if) your version of genuine is not typical. You can only do this effectively if you know yourself pretty well, though. You do, right?

Saturday, Recognition and Reward – Death reversed: Happy Eclipse! Have you been to Hell and back (or made it most of the way back)? Because this looks like an acknowledgement of what you’ve learned on that trip. It’s like a whiff of transformation is in the air. Celebrate your not inconsiderable progress. It’s not quite done, but getting there.

Sunday, The Waiting Game – Ten of Wands reversed:  Release, release, release! Release attachments to “how things must be.” Release responsibility that is not yours. Release unnecessary burdens. Release unwanted physical items. Great day for a purge. You want to know, when things are going to click together? To get there from here, we’re looking to let go. That’s the key.

Overview/Advice – The Chariot reversed: Stay flexible and don’t get fixated on a specific outcome. We most likely don’t have the whole picture yet. You can know what you’re going for overall, but a good chance you wouldn’t recognize the final form at this point, you know?

Affirmation – “Shanti: I am the angel of peace. I bring you new tranquility and a smoother road ahead.” I’ll take it! But yeah, in terms of making use of this as an affirmation…look for peace. Look for tranquility. This can be another exercise in letting go, in looking to see the best in people, or dismissing the worst offenders from your life. Whether you are deciding there was no ill intention or whether you dismiss someone from your life, either way you’re choosing peace. You know?

Choose peace. Every time and every place you can. Choose peace.

How’s your week looking, friends? You faring okay with the eclipses?

Authentic with Cautious Optimism: Weekly Flow Tarot, Feb 23 – Mar 1

Weekly Tarot Forecast Feb 23

I’m fairly well known for being the odd woman out, but it’s not because I try to be weird. It’s genuinely who I am, and allowing myself that freedom makes pursing my own dreams possible. And the forecast this week is sort of a personification of that very idea. I’m seeing a call to first become aware of where we are uncomfortable “fitting in” and finding ways to be more authentic instead. It’s not either/or, my way or yours. It’s being an distinct star, while still existing within a larger galaxy.

This week, the cards suggest a process of balancing self-assuredness with self-questioning. How do you know which worries are realistic threats versus which are not? How do you decide when to listen to the counsel of others versus when to go your own way? Those are issues we’re considering. There looks to be plenty happening overall with the preponderance of the Wands suit –  fire energy can both create and eliminate. In terms of significance, the end of the week has more impact than the beginning. That’s where the punch sits. I would not be surprised if there was some kind of epiphany that gets rolling on Saturday, but is more clearly felt on Sunday.

Monday, What is Hidden –  Four of Wands Reversed: False bravado, and a sense of almost-but-not-quite feeling at home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html is notable, albeit well camouflaged to most looking on. Consider a hesitancy to commit to a course of action as a clue, which particular topic(s) this feeling touches. Conversational pauses are pregnant (with insight). What’s not said says as much or more than what is said.

Tuesday, Crowning Influences –  Three of Wands: Focus on where you are going, not how you get there. Your end result is important here. Your expectations, your desires, your personal vision of “your ship coming in” holds sway. Put out the kind of energy you’d like returned to you. Also, understand that however you define success becomes the cornerstone from which day-to-day decisions are built upon. Clarity about your deepest desires can make the process much more effective.

Wednesday, Action –  Three of Cups Reversed: On top of your own desires (or confusion) sits “what everybody else thinks.” That can be a heavy bag to tote about! Others’ input is best neither wholesale adopted or out-of-hand rejected, but thoughtfully reviewed. Consider the counsel of community, but act upon personal convictions. Pay special attention to the areas where your inclinations differ from consensus, because those points of departure hold significance. Ultimately it’s your life to live, so live it the way you believe best, damn it!

Thursday, Clarification –  Seven of Wands: You know that part in the Hero’s Journey, where the protagonist says (a smidgen dramatically), “I have to do this alone”? That . This is a follow up from yesterday, taking a leave from the safety of the group to fight your own battles in your own way. As long as you are adhering to your own ethical standards, do what ya gotta do!

Friday, What to let go of in the Future –  The Magician: Yes, you can make your own way but you cannot make the way for everyone else! The Magician here reminds us that we do not control others even by carefully crafted approaches, and the illusion we sometimes may? Well, we’re going to have to release such notions if not today, soon. Control is best exercised at home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html, aimed squarely at oneself.

Saturday, Blocking or Covering –  The High Priestess: The unspoken is again a player in today’s dynamics. Unwritten rules, gut feelings without external confirmation, and what’s not said? The day drips with the energy of such non-events. Potential for emotional attachment to specific outcomes, which may block intuitive skills. If you’re trying to tune in, you may want to get quiet and pretend you’re considering someone else’s life for greater clarity. Sleep is especially beneficial for tidying up a cluttered head.

Sunday, Spirit –  Ten of Swords Reversed: What is clear now, that wasn’t at week’s beginning? Allow realizations to fully sink in, especially if they seem at first overwhelming. That’s how you process it. You may now be able to articulate what you sensed but couldn’t express yesterday. It’s helpful to shift to a more philosophical, broader perspective if you can, as it allows yourself more space to recover if required.

Advice/Overview –  The Star Reversed: Optimism is not unwarranted, but overconfidence is. Be just as wary of only seeing what you want to see as you are of declaring defeat before you get underway. Balance is the name of the game here. There will be ups and downs. “Cautiously optimistic” is the stance I’d advise this week.

Affirmation –  Call on your angels. Sometimes it’s frustrating, looking to the Universe to “tell us” what we should be doing. That’s not the way it works. We decide what we want ourselves. That’s our job! Then, once we know, we can call upon the Universe for help getting there. If you do want divine assistance, you have to ask explicitly for it. Short of extreme circumstances, you cannot expect intervention otherwise.

Are you seeing these kinds of questions arise in your week?

Altered Plans: Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Dec 8–14, 2014

Tarot Flow Dec 8 -14

Do you set intentions for full moons? I do, most of the time. For the recent Gemini moon, I wanted to release what doesn’t serve. This intention fits into my life on multiple levels and to be frank, I don’t have the time or energy for what doesn’t feed either me personally or my goals on a larger scale. Not in the budget anymore!

This week’s Tarot flow forecast? It brings that intention to mind. This is a very practically-oriented spread, with the final goal being to take action. Move! I like that. We’ve got a mix of Majors, Swords (thoughts) and Pentacles (practicalities), with that Ace of Wands (action) as “goal” for good measure. Overall, I expect it to be an productive and well-rounded week.

Monday, Positive Influences – Justice: Balance, fairness and weighing out the concerns of all parties is the way to begin the week. This will set the stage well for the days to come. This would be an excellent time to clarify goals.

Tuesday, Immediate Future – Ace of Swords: You do NOT need the long term figured out right now. But you do need at least one clear, rational strategy to build from, right now. You’re not looking to ride it into next year or next month or even next week, necessarily. You want an idea that takes care of what’s needed in the moment, today and tomorrow. For now is what we’re shooting for.

Wednesday, Relationship – Temperance reversed: I am expecting ongoing adjustments in relationships. Not all knowledge and experience is fully integrated, but hey. We’re working on it! Consider both practical, psychological issues as well as energetic issues. It may seem the two are unrelated, but in reality they are two sides of the same coin.

Thursday, Advice – Knight of Pentacles: The Knight of Pentacles can be a bit OCD, and he’s definitely one to review and categorize. He’s also a very hard worker and sometimes, a bit too serious. His appearance as advice would suggest going over the details, double-checking your facts and plan it out. Things may not go according to your plans, mind you. Truth is, some will not. But you’re still better off here not leaving everything up to chance and doing what you can to make sure all is where you want it to be.

Friday, Hobbies and Talents – Nine of Swords: Anxiety with a side order of guilt is getting in the way of self-expression. Are you self conscious about how others perceive your efforts? Are you prone to feeling guilty for resources you devote to yourself? Because that’s what this looks like to me. Don’t use hobbies to cut yourself off from the rest of the world, either; there is often a sense of isolation that accompanies this card. Also? Getting enough sleep boosts your creativity.

Saturday, Friendship – Ten of Pentacles reversed: Friend serve very important and valuable functions, but do not single-handedly take care of all your emotional needs. Because you know what? That is totally an inside job!

Sunday, Goal – Ace of Wands: The goal here, to begin creation! It’s like the entire week is a buildup to manifesting, setting the stage. Monday, we get grounded and clear on goals. Tuesday, we enact a short-term plan. Wednesday, we deal with personnel issues. Thursday is reviewing the details. Friday is getting over ourselves. Saturday is appreciating the support of loved ones, understanding there are limitations to what you can withdraw from that bank. And Sunday, the spark has been lit and the process is underway.

Overview/Advice – Three of Pentacles reversed: Plan but don’t rigidly adhere to the plans if another, more apt opportunity arises. You know the phrase, “Rules are meant to be broken?” It comes with the caveat that the rules must first be understood. Well, this week, it’s “plans are meant to be changed,” but with the rider than you still need to have plans because they put you in the right place at the right time to get the updated schedule.

Affirmation, Claircognizance– Archangel Uriel: “Pay attention the the thoughts and ideas that come to you, as they are answered prayers.” Uriel’s name means “light of God” or “fire of God” in Hebrew, and he’s known as the angel of wisdom and repentance. We can make use of both this week. Ideas will come to make wanted changes, but in order to do so, we have to be willing to alter course. The opportunities will appear, that’s the Universe’s job. The choices to act on them, ours. If I want to release what doesn’t serve, I have to be willing to actually let go, and focus my own attention on what does.

Shortly after I set my intention, I ended up reading The Four Agreements. In man ways, it was a rather direct answer to my intention. But it’s up to me to act on that knowledge. It wasn’t really in the form I expected, you know? But this week, it’s a lot like that. You’ll get some answers, options for fulfilling your plans. They just won’t show up in the guise you were expecting.

How’s your week looking?

Something Old, Something New: Weekly Tarot Flow, Nov. 17 -23

Tarot Flow Nov 17 -23

Somebody, somewhere said, “In every ending, there is a beginning.” That’s this week in a nutshell. A mash-up of endings leading to beginnings.

We’ve got a couple of Tarot Tens, which speak to wrapping things up, and a couple of Aces, which speak to starting something new. In between, there are choices, details, and a little shot of optimism. This could work! But it’s not all sunshine and roses, every minute. The bumps in the road look to be specifically related to integrating what you’ve learned so far into your now, your partnerships, and coming out the other end with a more solid, long-term vision for the future. You can do this!

Monday, Co-workers – Seven of Pentacles Reversed: Those damn people you work with just don’t always take the long term view Agh! Somebody needs to. Could it be you?

Tuesday, Past – Nine of Wands Reversed: What did you bail on before it was quite done? That’s the clean up left. Not a lot, but a little, and that little bit remaining is important.

Wednesday, Partner – Two of Swords: A choice to be made between you and your partner. Weight it out, and consider the facts. Take into account everyone’s needs, not just those of either self or other. Rational is the way to go here. Careful balancing will give you the best result. Be fair.

Thursday, Finances – Ace of Cups: A new financial opportunity…or even just a bit of optimism. A currently small but encouraging bright spot related to money.

Friday, Past Life – Wheel of Fortune Reversed: Something that seemed like bad luck at the time maybe was not. Why? It gave you something you needed, even if you didn’t know.

Saturday, You – Five of Swords: You can wipe up the floor with any opponents today. Don’t be a poor sport if you do, though.

Sunday, Pros – Ace of Pentacles: Efforts are especially productive today, even if it seems like just a “little bit.”

Advice/Overview – Ten of Cups: You can get your guidance this week form looking to your emotional states, and in particular which options you feel “at home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html” with. The best choices this week ring true to your heart, and feel consistent with your family heritage. In other words, those values you carry with you, possibly some so deep they seem to run in your blood? Honor them. Honor yourself. This will guide you.

Affirmation, Leadership – Archangel Gabriel: “It is time for you to assume your leadership power and position, and lovingly guide others.” In the context of this week’s reading, I’m seeing the need to be very clear about what works for you and take the lead on moving in that direction. The people that should be walking next to you down that path, will follow. Release attachment to who comes along. Release attachment to anyone else’s choices. Just make your own, and focus on maintaining a generous, loving attitude. Lead by example, and by conviction. A heart full of joy and love makes a very compelling example.

How’s your week looking?
