Executing the Plan! Weekly Tarot Forecast, Oct 19 – 25, 2015

I think intuition can be a form of answered prayer. You do the best you can – thinking, figuring, planning – and then you pray. –Conrad Hilton

Sometimes I think I’m a really sucky planner. Not that I was born without the Virgo planning superpower. I was, I was! I can plan circles around your average bear.

I plan and plan and plan. I can plan you right into next lifetime, if you give me a minute. I can plan out contingencies better than an insurance company or professional gambler, for God’s sakes.

But then…life refuses to cooperate.

Planning gets you started. Planning gets you fired up, and opening up to the possibilities. But in the end, you gotta move on the plans and be ready to shift course as the situation develops. That’s what we’re looking at, next week. Execute your plans, but be ready to take an alternate route if the need arises.

This week looks very hands-on; few cups with the feely-feels to distract us. The focus is on Pentacles, with some wands and swords. So actually checking items off your list instead of thinking them up (Swords) is in order. But there will be shifts in the landscape as we go, so you may need to improvise.

We start off making it through the churned up waters on Monday, perhaps indulging in a bit of fantasy on Wednesday, and potentially reclaiming our own power after a blow on Friday. Sunday is a great day to set the stay for next week and through it all? Pay attention, so you can integrate all those little bits and baubles of truth into a more complete understanding. And most importantly, act on what you’re learning along the way!

Monday, Awaiting Results, Six of Swords: This smacks of pins and needles to me. You’re going to make it alright–that’s the promise of the Six of Swords, although you can pretty much expect rough patches and a general feeling of being worn out, too. But do know that you’ve set the stage for making it through current challenges and it’s just a matter of getting there now, okay?

Tuesday, Manifest, Six of Pentacles: Sixes in Tarot denote cooperation, teamwork. So it’s a great time to pitch in to help make others’ plans real, and please, allow them to pitch in for you! This is very much a “together, we can make things happen” kind of day. Generosity is where the magic lies. But as always, your resources are finite, so be discriminating about how you hand them out. Okay?

Wednesday, Blossom, Seven of Cups: Ah, the dreams are popping! But which have substances and which are utter fantasy? Damned if they are possible to sort at the moment. Just be aware, the sorting it all out part may come later.

Thursday, Love, Ten of Pentacles: Connect with your tribe–the people you feel most at home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html with. Good time to feel “rich” with the people you care about most, be they present in body or only in your mind.

Friday, Dreams Coming True/Solar Plexus Chakra, Ten of Swords: What an odd combination of cards! Dreams coming true and the chakra of personal power, paired with the card of betrayal? But take another look, because it’s an instructive mix. To be in control of your life, to make your dreams reality, some boundaries are required! There’s no need to hold grudges for those who have hurt you. But it behooves us all to take personal responsibility for our own well-being. If someone does you dirty? Don’t bother using your emotional energy to curse a perpetrator. Just lock that crap out of your life!

Saturday, Choose Your Battles, King of Wands: Spend your energy where it will do some good.

Sunday, Win or Lose, Ace of Pentacles: What you plan doesn’t determine your success. What you DO determines success. Don’t require perfection. Just get started!

An ounce of action trumps pounds of planning. #quotes Click To Tweet

Overview/Advice, Success & Growth/Sacral Chakra, Temperance. Start mixing it all together! Take what you know, what you need, and what you want and begin putting it into a single package this week. It may not initially appear like it will all fit into the same bag, but it will. Take note of any lessons, and more importantly, incorporate them!

Affirmation, Gray – Learn to Scan Your Body. You can scan not only your physical body, but emotional body as well. Breathe deeply a few times, and just direct your attention on making an imaginary sweep, from top to bottom. Do you notice any areas that seem “off” to you? Cloudy or murky? Give yourself extra attention there. If your neck hurts, do you feel too much “weight on your shoulders?” If you have knee issues, do you feel stable in your life? If your chest is tight, can you “feed your heart” with some warm, loving experience? Imagine golden healing light channeling in through the top of your head to any part of your body that feels cloudy, murky or gray to heal yourself.

Open Door Policy? Weekly Flow Tarot, Sept 29–Oct 5

Weekly Tarot Sept 29 - Oct 5

I’m getting kind of used to seeing the inverted cards in the weekly lineups, especially with Mercury in it’s shadow, prepping for an upcoming retrograde. (Astrology newbies: That means communication, short travel and electronics get wonky for a few weeks while Mercury appears to be moving backwards in the sky…it’s a good time to do anything that starts with “re” as in review, revisit and rethink. I love doing editing projects during Mercury retrograde, it’s a perfect time for it!) I’m thinking this one is going to pack a punch because I’ve started feeling it earlier than I normally do—I’ve got a lot of Mercury energy. But what are you going to do? You work with what you’ve got, man.

With two cards from the Major Arcana in this weekly and another in the overview slot, I think the week unquestionably has importance in individual lives, these events carry some weight. But what I notice about these particular Majors is that they are all “quiet” cards. These are not loud, not flashy or showy, not dramatic energy. These are more like quiet, but deeply meaningful moments. So stay attuned throughout the week for small incidents that have big meaning. The overriding themes I’m seeing here are revolving around integrity, saying “no” and setting boundaries.

I’m thinking this next week is largely going to be full of choices about what we want to invite into our home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html versus when we decide to shut (and lock) the door. And make no mistake: these are choices! You may not choose individual events in your life, what crops up but you do choose how you process those events. You dig what the distinction I’m making here? This week, that’s the subtle distinction we’re talking. This is a week of opening and shutting doors in your life, not so much from outside events, but instead an internal decision-making process.

Monday, Others – Six of Wands: We start the week off on a high note with appreciation and acknowledgement for leadership ability. I cannot say if it’s you that’s appreciated or you that’s doing the appreciating, but either way, it’s a positive vibe. To make the best use of it, share the glory if it’s showing up in your lap. And if you’re seeing greatness among your group, acknowledge it, appreciate it, and emulate it. It’s an “everybody wins” kind of vibe.

Tuesday, Resolution – Temperance inverted: Today, resolution comes from specifying what you do NOT want. It’s not a compromise, it’s not a blending of goals. It’s a clarification, and one only YOU can make.

Wednesday, Advice – High Priestess inverted: Advice here is to speak up and act on what you know. Do not assume everybody else already knows. Don’t sit back or be a bystander. Act on intuition, act on secret information, and keep moving. The time is now!

Thursday, Unconscious Desires – Two of Wands: Do you secretly relish a sense of competition, perhaps without even being aware? If there has been an me-against-them dynamic in development, you will find that highlighted today. Make sure you understand where your motivations are coming from to make clear-headed decisions.

Friday, Friends and Family – Ten of Wands: The opinion of loved ones may feel like a burden today. Remember, it’s YOUR choice which of these you take on as your own, if any. You are never responsible for how someone else feels. You are responsible for making your own choices and being kind. But do not equate kindness to capitulation. Kindness comes from your heart, it’s a state of being and good intention. Kindness NEVER requires you abandon your values or needs. It merely requires your heart is open, true and generating love. Are the wands you are carrying yours?

Saturday, Attitudes and Thoughts, King of Pentacles inverted: Yesterday catching up! A tiredness of taking care of everyone else, making accommodations for other people in any and all venues. Suggestion: Seat yourself at the head of the “to be taken care of” table and make rejuvenation a priority.

Sunday, Present, Ace of Cups inverted: You may feel a bit drained as the weekend wraps up. Me-time is always a good option when this comes up. Give yourself a little space to feel however you feel, and permission to indulge in peaceful, easy behavior today.

Overview/Advice – Hermit Inverted: There is a difference between isolating and taking time away from the world’s bustle for your own mental, emotional and spiritual health. There is also a difference between learning from an distinguished teacher and adopting the conclusions of some guru wholesale, tossing aside your own critical facilities in the process. Here, you want the downtime but not disconnection. You want to look to others for inspiration but not for answers. The answers, always, are yours.

Affirmation: Aura Cleanse. At the end of a tough day, any time you’re feeling tired or drained or overwhelmed, hop in the shower or bath and cleanse your body with the intention of also (magically) cleansing your aura of worry, stress, negative energy, anything that is not healthy or helpful for you. Essential oils like lavender or rosemary would be a great addition, or adding a tea made of rose and hyssop might be nice. Pray over the oils or herbs as you mix them up (to whome/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_htmlver you pray to) infusing them with your intention, and allow all those stressors to drain out of the tub as the water drains. Seriously. This is good medicine!

This doesn’t look like a super easy-breezy week but you know what? I like these cards anyway. I think they are important. I think the things we say “no” to here keeps those chairs around our table free for the “yes” guests, you know? We’re not spending our emotional capital on junk food, we have a budget for healthy energetic eating. That’s how I see this week—like purging and clearing a space, to make way for your new awesome to fill it. I’m in!

Are you ready?! How you holding up, peeps?
