Shady! Weekly Tarot Forecast, July 4 – 10

I get a funny, slightly disturbed feeling being lied to. Like milk that’s going bad, you know? It’s almost, but not quite right. It generally hits my solar plexus. It’s not always very noticeable–and my desire to believe can lead me to disregard it. Many times, it has. But the feeling itself is still valid, and very reliable.

I almost never say anything, when I get that feeling.

That is what this forecast reminded me of. That shady, “off” feeling–and the decision not to say anything about it.

Looking at this forecast as a whole, there’s sort of a “shady” feeling about it. Like there is plenty to misconstrue, a bit of confusion. I’m seeing one of those shell games, or 3 Card Monte. I’m not saying someone is actively trying to con you. But truthfully? It’s a possibility. Although much of the time, people con themselves. That, too, is a possibility this week. Most of these cards are minor arcana, however. So I’m thinking the confusion doesn’t have super long-term consequences. Of the week, Friday’s recommendation for self-care and the overview of taking some time to yourself are the most important parts to note.

While Mars is now direct and that feeling of trudging through mud is abating, this week still feels slower-moving than most. Progress is possible, but gradual. Two steps forward, one step in a completely random direction and…where the Hell was I going again? Like that. So take your time, okay? Rushing not advised. Roll with it, friends!

Monday, 7 of Cups Rx: This smacks of self-delusion, very possibly a “too good to be true” thing that, unsurprisingly, isn’t. Listen to the intuitive nudge of feedback–specifically, that one you’d like to ignore. Because if you don’t…well, you’re gonna be cussing yourself in the morning, Ya dig?

Tuesday, 4 of Cups: Content or complacent? That’s a matter of perspective. Either way, there’s more interest in dreaming about what could be today than actually taking action on the issue. If you have the choice, I’d schedule light today because it doesn’t seem super productive. But if you get a chance for a little daydreaming, the energetic weather should support that.

Wednesday,  Knight of Swords Rx: Somebody isn’t getting the message. Is it you? If you have important info to communicate, verify the recipient actually receives your message and understands what you’re trying to say. It may take more than one attempt to exchange information. There is also potential for muddied thinking and getting facts mixed up so double check your details. The necessary info is there, it’s not missing, but it could be in the wrong place. Like a form that has the right answers, but on the wrong lines.

Thursday, 8 of Cups: Release. Let it go! The hurt feelings and the what-if’s and the but-they-should-have-knowns. All of it. If it causes you pain or holds you back, step away. If you cannot yet do this literally, do it emotionally. Focus specifically and intentionally on what encourages you and makes you feel good and set aside the rest.

Friday, The Empress Rx: Mama could use some love. If you’ve been busting tail looking after everybody else, today is a good day to look after YOU. A little play time, in particular, will replenish your giving well.

Saturday, 7 of Swords: Uh oh. Something is going down under the radar. Somebody lying? Maybe. If you have a difficult maneuver to pull off, you can today: provided you keep your mouth shut about it! There is just more going on than meets the eye. That’s not necessarily a problem, but it could be, depending. Don’t assume all the relevant facts are in the open.

Sunday, 4 of Pentacles: All is well. You are safe, and you made it through a tricky week just fine. It’s a good day to stay home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html and eat, if you have the option! Conserve your energy and resources and replenish yourself for the week coming up.

Overview/Advice, The Hermit: If you feel stressed out, frazzled or confused at any point this week, retreat! Go off by yourself for a bit and meditate. Or read. Or study whatever appeals to you. Or just sit, in nature and quiet. This will help SO MUCH, you have no idea. Don’t tell me you don’t have the time. Make the time. It will get you through any of the other difficulties with your equilibrium intact.

20160702_175753_HDRAffirmation: “My thoughts are in harmony with health.” This advice works to maximize physical health of course. But it also applies to any type of health–emotional, financial, relationship health, whatever.

 Whether you feel sick or well, focus on the wellness. Focus on improvements and appreciation for what’s going right. If you find little to appreciate, go more general as opposed to specifics, as it’s easier to do. And if you have trouble conjuring wellness thoughts on any particular topic, distract yourself with pleasant thoughts and activities unrelated. The point is to fill your mind with pleasant thoughts and your body with pleasant feelings.

Possible affirmations? I feel good. I like feeling good. I’m getting better all the time. I’m getting stronger every day. I love making progress. Most of the time, I feel good. It’s a good day. I appreciate my body. I appreciate my mind. I like me!

Baking in the Good Intentions: Weekly Tarot Forecast, Sept 28 – October 4

I have a very…tenuous relationship with my family of origin. I don’t talk about it all the time anymore because most of it, I’ve processed, you know? It gets a touch inflamed every now and again but overall, I am comfortable with it. Best be, or I wouldn’t be comfortable at all.

I also don’t talk about it too much because it makes people angry for me. And I’m not angry. Sometimes a bit melancholy, but not angry.

While I appreciate the support and the caring intentions baked in when folks become indignant on my behalf, the anger is not right for me. Not at this point in my life.

My birth family is a group of  very good people with a much different perspective from me. We could argue about who is “right,” but the truth is, we’re both right. They are living true to their beliefs and convictions, personifying what they are confident to be true. How could I say that’s not right? It is their path–living the life that is right for them. I am living the life that is right for me.

(And very little shall that twain meet.)

Tarot Forecast Week Sept 28 2015

This week, I’d advise everyone to bake in their good intentions, but not obsess over how other people execute their own recipes.

It’s rare I get almost a whole spread of reversed cards. If one or two cards are reversed, then I’ll take that as specifically related to the message. But sometimes it happens that well over half are reversed. In that case, I will generally note it as indication the energy is very clogged and sluggish, not free flowing, and simply read the cards as being upright. Otherwise, interpretation becomes next to impossible.

However in this case, I’m reading all the reversals as the ground shaking, you know? The sense is of major shifts underway, not especially feeling steady, although steady is a VERY relative term. We also have 5 (!) Major Arcana.

Can you say “eclipse?”

The flow is pretty clear though: right off the bat, ground yourself in loving energy and good intention. Stay in the present and make your choices minute by minute, trying to be as generous as you can throughout. Step back from what doesn’t work for you and stay true to your guiding principles but don’t bother trying to micromanage anybody else. It won’t work. I’m seeing a whole lot of realignment going on. So you’ll need to stay sharp.

Monday, Crown Chakra + Three of Cups/Share the Love: Send a note or call the friend who “just popped into your head” unexpectedly. Do your part healing the world by sharing joy and kinship with those closest to you.  Don’t think that has impact? I would say, “What IS this world made of if not individual moments between individual people?” You cannot change all the moments or all the people. But you can add your light to the mix by deciding about you moments with your people. That’s really the best we’ve got.

Tuesday, Two of Wands/Spread Your Wings & The Lovers/Love: I didn’t realize I’d drawn an extra card for today until I was ready to read ’em, so I’m running with it. We’re talking about choice and growth–both the Two of Wands and the Lovers are cards of choice. So I’d expect choice to appear. How to make your decisions? Choose to GROW. Whatever options you have that entail growth, take that step. It’s well favored.

Wednesday, The Wheel/Flow: Don’t try to swim upstream. Stay present, in the present, and let whatever doesn’t jive with your energy just pass you on by. Primed attention of this flavor makes it possible for you to grab little bits and pieces of luck that would otherwise escape notice.

Thursday, Justice/Detach: Isn’t detachment an interesting keyword for the Justice card? True fairness and balance does require stepping back. I’m seeing this as a signal to delay making judgements or hopping into the “what’s best for everybody” fray, as you may be too close to the situation. Take a deep breath and allow details to develop while you gain perspective.

Friday, The Hierophant/Teach: Share what you know, if you have someone inclined to listen. Not so much? Then take notes. You’ll be able to go back and learn from them yourself later. Insight is available for putting together components you hadn’t quite synthesized previously.

Saturday, The Fool/Trust: Try to put worries behind you and get a change of scenery. Great day for an adventure! If you’re a workaholic, some time off is in order, if possible.

Sunday, Five of Cups/Change Focus: Of all the cards in this spread, this one is notable for being upright. It’s also one I would prefer reversed! Tendency to really be feeling a loss. Try to put it into perspective, or at least find a way to reframe it that you can feel as okay about it as possible. That’s not synthetic, or mental gymnastics. It’s choosing a more healing interpretation.

Overview/Advice, Six of Wands/Believe & Succeed: Hold tight to your faith this week, and guard the love in your heart. Does that sound funny, advising you to guard the love in your heart? Sometimes, you have to guard love to keep it intact! When someone cuts at you, when life throws you a big bundle of ouch, it can harden you and and close down heart energy. But it’s definitely a choice. I know, because I’ve seen people make the choice to grow their heart in extremely harsh circumstances. I can say with conviction, it’s not what life hands you. It’s what you do with it.

Affirmation: I am standing on the leading edge of thought. Life doesn’t just happen “at you” or “to you.” YOU are a participant. You help craft your own experience with every thought and every word. Some things we don’t control–we don’t write the headlines. We don’t decide who lives and who dies. But we do decide what we say and do, how we look at the world. Let your heart and your love lead you and you won’t go far wrong.

How you doing out there?
