It’s What you See – Weekly Tarot Forecast, Nov 2 – 8, 2015

I was uncharacteristically fussy last week. Whiney even.

Of course, I’m as human as anybody else and I can get stressed and fret. There’s nothing wrong with having those feelings. But I wasn’t shedding them as quickly and efficiently as I normally do. I was not letting go–massaging them and looking at them from every angle and in general, just working them way too much.

Even I was getting tired of listening to me!

Towards the end of the week, I decided to shift my focus. Enough already! The next day, the Universe tested me with a couple of vandalized tires crapping out on the way to a Tarot gig. I had even gotten up on time, damn it!

I am proud to say I overcame the fussy and was able to go on to give some awesome readings the rest of the day.

It wasn’t just what happened to me. It was how I was thinking about it. This week? A lot like that.

weekly tarot forecast

Looking over the forecast as a whole, there’s unquestionably an edge to the coming week. There is a sense of tiredness here, and I expect some emotionally sticky moments without a doubt. I am thinking Wednesday will be the most challenging although throughout the week, it’s going to be vital to keep a tight grip on your perspective.

In particular, don’t focus exclusively on what you feel is lacking. That’s a prescription of a sour mood if I ever saw one. Keep coming back to that thought this week, every time you feel frustrated. Ask yourself: Am I focusing on the lack? What do I still have? What can I be grateful for instead?

See if you can shift your focus to blessings, to plans, to what you CAN do, what you DO have. If you take nothing else from this forecast, keep that thought in mind and it should carry you through!

Monday, What to Let Go of in the Future – Emperor Reversed: That drive for control? Micromanaging–or rather, trying really hard to micromanage others via stunning wit or even your life via perfect planning? Totally not working. And you know it. If anything, it’s turning your hair gray and making you crankier than an old lady who hasn’t had her coffee. Let it go, Grasshopper. Let it go. Control is mostly illusion anyway.

Tuesday, What to Take From the Past – Ace of Swords: Clarity, clean and sharp focus. I’m thinking of the 18-year-old about to graduate high school, full dreams and certainty. I mean, you sort of want to laugh in that fresh little face–so cute, all that certainty! (But you don’t laugh, because it’s mean.) The cluelessness, sure, we don’t need that. But that energy young people so often have, with such a singleness of focus, the drive and even to some extent even the idealism where things are so pure and simple? We could stand a little bit of that, even a long way south of 18.

Wednesday, Crossing – Death: It’s not an easy time. That’s all. Big transitional energy that’s heavy and hard sometimes. That’s what’s weighing many people down. Understand it doesn’t last forever and be kind to your fellow humans because even if you’re not weighted, they might well be. Great day to purge anything symbolic of what you’d like O-U-T-out of your life! Scrape up the gook and dispose of it.

Thursday, Heart of the Situation – Ace of Cups Reversed: All things appearing as bigger than they are due to emotional drain. Like those funhouse mirrors? Take some downtime if you can. Dream a little. Be kind to you.

Friday, Surprise – Page of Pentacles Reversed: Details are less important than they may have initially appeared. Early day off work? Do be sure and track expenses, though, as we don’t want today’s surprise to be coming up short on cash. Okay?

Saturday, Mind – Eight of Wands: I don’t know! Not me, as in Dixie doesn’t know. That’s what this card says, in the position of mind. It’s a mind not yet made up.

Sunday, Romance – Five of Pentacles: There’s love available for you but you may not be feeling. If you need a hug, you will have to ask for it directly. Love and mind-reading are two different things. Make your desires explicit.

Overview/Advice, Underlying Influences – Four of Cups: This is a week pitting experiences against expectations. It’s a little harder because it looks to be challenging to judge at points what is reality versus what is interpretation. I want to fall back on some of my old standbys: don’t date potential. Don’t expect other people to be you. Give yourself space to think, to grieve, to get quiet, and to know your own mind. Let emotions flow, to you and through you. If in doubt, nap it out.

Affirmation: When I reverse the thought, I reverse the condition. That sounds like a load of Law of Attraction crap, doesn’t it? Ha! Well, this is from the Abraham-Hicks deck but y’all know me. I have mixed feelings about the Law of Attraction as is generally postulated in popular culture. However…your experience IS highly dependent upon your interpretation of it. Let’s say your car breaks down. Okay, that’s no fun. But whether it’s a world-ending tragedy or a minor blip in your life depends very largely upon how you think about it. So while changing your thoughts will not pay the car repair bill, they can move you from a place of victimhood to gratitude, that these are the kind of problems you have: solvable.

In every bitter pill, there is some blessing. I’m not saying ignore the hurts and struggles. I’m saying don’t put them in the center of your life. Ground yourself in blessings and love, and let the struggles be but a small part of the overall picture. Okay? It’s all about the perpsective!

Are you in a transition?

This weeks forecast is using the mini Radiant Rider-Waite in a tin and the Deck of 1000 spreads, with some Abraham-Hicks affirmation cards.

Cleaning out the closet: Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, April 13 – 19

thumbnailThis forecast looks a lot like a “purge week” to me. From the start, ignoring what’s sentimental for loved ones to focus on your own needs (Monday), putting up with the chaos in route of a clean out (Tuesday), being hit with the changes in your life as you go through reminders mid-purge (Wednesday), pushing through to finish (Thursday), and not being clear on when you’re done (Friday). There’s even a little remorse over what’s been changed (Saturday) along with a well deserved rest (Sunday). I’m not sure exactly how this is going to manifest on an individual level, but I think it’s a very interested way, the whole reading came together.

Another thing notable this week: With the exception of Sunday, there is a LOT of motion here. Wands all over the place with a couple swords to punctuate. And a couple of Majors in the mix. I would not be surprised if a realization that hits mid week (Death) is processed and accepted around the end (Hanged Man).

Monday, Power –  Ten of Cups reversed: There’s a lot of power in what we learned from our family. But this power goes both ways…both those examples we learned to emulate, and those examples we opted to eschew. You know what I’m saying? Both the ways we favor our family and the ways we diverse are defining. Always be yourself and honor that.

Tuesday, Patience –  Eight of Wands: Things are happening! Just not done cooking yet. Hang on, hang on! Won’t’ be too long before the “what next” feeling is clear.

Wednesday, Foundations & Achievements –  Death: Transformations have changed who we are. Those challenging times, we build upon and grow from. They suck during, but the next morning? It’s pure gold. Give yourself a little kudos for making it through, and acknowledge what you’ve learned. Because really? It comes in handy. Secondary: With it being Tax day in the US, your foundations and achievements (income) can take a hit with tax bill. After all, they say the only two sure things in life are death and taxes. ;-)

Thursday, Suffering in Silence –  Ten of Wands: Oh man! That’s a heavy weight. Hang on, Hang on. Get help in you can, because maybe some of the burden can be shared.

Friday, Temptation –  Four of Swords reversed: There’s a temptation to hold on to what should be let go, here and now. I’m seeing this like somebody baiting you in a conversation. Are you going to do whatever it takes to get the last word, even if you know it’s not in your best interests? Or are you going to just get on with your life?

Saturday, Disruption –  Four of Wands reversed: “Forever” usually means “As far as I can see right now.” There is a disruption with an established setup, routine or arrangement with this. Roll with the flow, baby.

Sunday, Partnerships & Alliances (+ Sacral Chakra) –  The Hanged Man: Calm down from yesterday. Exercise a little faith. No need for goal-directed activity. But do something that gives you joy. In fact, your J.O.B. JOB for the day is to feel some joy. Get on it!

Overview/Advice –  Five of Wands reversed: Another week to choose your battles man. Although I’ll admit, I consider that advice relevant 24/7. Minimize conflict. Ignore what doesn’t really matter and don’t go around with the silly notion you can bring the world to your perspective. Settle for living your life from your perspective. Best to keep your nose out of the rest of the world’s business. We generally have enough to do minding our own.

Affirmation –  Scarlet: Attract Success. To attract success, you have to first let go of “not success.” You know what I mean? You want a new wardrobe, you clean out the closest. This helps on a physical level as well as metaphysical level. This week is very busy, cleaning out the closet. If your “closet” is a mess, it will be a tough week. But take heart in that it looks good for you to be in a good place with the whole ordeal by the end. And that feeling of accomplishment? Well worth it!

Do you have “a closet” to clean?

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?

Seeing in the Dark: Weekly Flow Tarot, Oct. 20 – 16

Weekly Flow Tarot Oct 20-26

We have an insane number of court cards this week, with 2 Kings, 2 Pages and a Knight showing up in the mix. Three Major arcana round it out, so I’m expecting it to be a hard-hitting week for “people” issues, relationships and communication. You’ll need to stay sharp to decode all these undercurrents because they look massive!

Monday, What is Hidden – King of Swords: This suggests surface superficiality belies the amount of calculation behind the scenes. Not good or bad, really. But don’t think casual about any communication–think calculated, measured and intentional. “Offhand” remarks are probably not. The person making everything look “easy” is actually executing a very detailed and specifically crafted plan. Very little sentimentality floating around.

Tuesday, Situation – Page of Pentacles: There is a message to be delivered, which is not always easy during Mercury Retro. Look to ACTIONS over words, as truth lies within behavior.

Wednesday, Friends and Family – King of Pentacles: Family (or family of friends) support is readily available. Let loved ones feed you, physically or metaphorically.

Thursday, Romance – Knight of Pentacles: Romance is here, there, everywhere today. It feels a little wound up and there is a potential for obsessive thinking, although it’s avoidable if you channel your energy. Emphasis on physical connection and activity. If you’ve got a sweetie and you can, go out! If not, enjoy and pamper yourself sensually.

Friday, Mind – Death: This is an awareness of what will never be the same, along with a mental accounting of how such changes actually impact you. It doesn’t have to be depressing. Knowing what is gone can be incredibly liberating as much as bittersweet or sad.

Saturday, Outcome – Temperance: Integration comes after yesterday’s accounting. Letting go of the old situations and embracing your new reality, you can let those experiences become part of who you are without grasping onto zombies.

Sunday, Future Life – High Priestess: Lighter by the end of the week, intuition is sharp! Listen to that radar, folks. It never steers you wrong. We don’t know where we’re going here, but we have an inkling. There’s a slight breeze, almost. If you feel it, follow it.

Overview/AdvicePage of Swords: Be on the ready with clear, direct communication throughout the week, and clarify important points to make sure they are understood. We’re winding down this ugly Mercury Retrograde soon, so it won’t be much longer. This week seems especially chock full of messages in the form of other people’s behavior, although some may require decoding. You’re up to the task.

Affirmation-Black: There seems to be shifting, serious and significant, somewhere in this week. It’s quite possible you’ll find yourself looking at a situation differently, and maybe seeing something of your own flaws within. Stay loving toward yourself, and accept your imperfections as readily as you would someone else’s. It’s in accepting yourself as you are, with love, that you are able to acknowledge—and ultimately grow from—your own shadow.

This entire weekly flow reminds me of walking around a room in the dark—a room where you’re not alone. Maybe you’re relying on your instincts instead of your eyes. And be aware of what the others in the room say to you. Truth may not be in the words. It may be in a tone of voice or even a pause instead. So take things slowly and deliberately, and feel your way through.

How’s your week looking?!

Fogged Up Windows-Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Sept. 8 – 14

Tarot Forecast Sept 8 -14

Looking at this weekly flow as a whole, it smells very strongly of transition. Hard-to-hold-on-to, slippery and unclear transition. Sorry, I’m not expecting this to be a popular conclusion. But no matter how thick the fog, the sun always comes out sooner or later.

Not shocking, starting out with that Pisces (confusing!) full moon, but I am having a hard time seeing much where this is going other than the constant? Change! The number of inverted cards points to the potential for confusion and delays. Major Arcana cards for Thursday, Friday and Sunday indicate some gravity to what’s up this week. I do find it interesting that the cards from the The Deck of 1000 Spreads are almost all “Influence” cards. That suggests to me that lots of outside factors are in play through the week in terms of what you’re reacting to. However, your reactions always belong to you! Also, if you don’t expect immediate gratification, you’ll be a lot happier because I don’t think many are likely to get it.

Monday, Question – Five of Wands Reversed: Who’s on my side? Am I angry without knowing why? What am I really fighting for? These types of questions, especially acknowledging conflict that is not out in the open, can lead to useful insights today.

Tuesday, Disappointment – Six of Pentacles Reversed: I’m reading this as sadness over a lack of engagement from others, a lack of contribution. There’s almost a loneliness here, like we are NOT all in this together. Bah! For yourself, don’t give with expectations or strings attached because it will backfire. Make sure your offers are honest and upfront, from the heart without ulterior motive. A little detachment can also ease the sting of not being happy with what others put forth. You’re responsible for YOU. That’s more than enough.

Wednesday, Surprise – Three of Cups Reversed: Still a bit of isolation here, like the group is either not on board with plans or only partially supportive. This isn’t getting kicked out of the club entirely, but it’s not being the guest of honor, either. Be sure you allow people space to have their own perspectives and don’t assume you know what everybody else things. If you can avoid being oversensitive, you may learn something from listening to alternative perspectives now.

Thursday, What is Hidden – The World: The weight you carry and the responsibility with which you’ve toted it is not visible to the rest of the world. This isn’t good or bad so much as it just “is.” Efforts are appropriate and effective, but not outwardly obvious.

Friday, Crossing – Judgment: How others see you may be weighing heavily. Or maybe it’s how you see yourself. One of my life guidelines I try very hard to follow is to never behave in private in a way I would not be comfortable with becoming public.

Saturday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Nine of Wands Reversed: This is a very tired day! Feelings of being worn out, unsure of where you’re going and just wanting to “get it over with” are likely. This would be an excellent day for some recreation, down-time or distraction. Ruminating on issues is to be avoided. Let the week sink in without forcing yourself to come up with “conclusions” right now. A little laughter does a world of good today.

Sunday, Hopes and Fears – Death: I’m seeing this as the “it can’t go on the way it has been” declaration. Both hope and fear something serious is going to completely and utterly change. This is one way to end a “transitional” week for sure. Obviously, the Death is not literal here, but a belief or perception could easily just slip right out of your hands today.

Overview/Advice – Page of Cups Reversed: Don’t let yourself become too emotionally overwrought. Talk to friends, journal, meditate, take a nap (my favorite!), just do whatever it is that you “do” in order to manage emotional demands. I think there will be plenty this week and they need to be looked after.

Affirmation – Decide. One potential benefit of having outside input withdrawn is clarity. A times, we lose focus on what stuff is really ours and what comes from outside us. Sometimes people ask me, “What do my guides want me to do?” as if there was one right answer to how to live that is supported by Spirit and infinite numbers of wrong answers. Your free will matters, not just to you but also to your spiritual support team. They will support your growth in whatever way you find it, but the route, the means, the easy or hard part? Well, that’s up to you. If you don’t learn a lesson one way, you’ll learn it another. Once you’ve made a clear decision about what it is you want in your life, however, and put that clear decision out there to the Universe, you’ll often find the support you need to accomplish it serendipitously show up. So this week, don’t obsess over who approves of your life and who doesn’t. Who cares?! Instead, use this week to obtain greater clarity about what you really want it in your life. Times of transition are tough, but they also offer great opportunity. You’d be silly to pass that up.

This week has the feel of fogged up windows to me. Just because you cannot see what’s on the other side of the glass doesn’t mean it’s not there. Soon enough the sun will come out and the fog will lift. In the meantime, just keep driving—carefully, that is!

Do you feel like you’re looking through foggy windows?

2014 Year Ahead Video Forecast: Spoiled Mayo?!

So I grabbed the Housewives’ deck hoping for something light and fun for 2014. You can see how well that worked out for me. It generated another classic thumbnail shot featuring “Dixie’s most bizarre facial expressions!”

Short version: Um, yeah. Big changes, some not easy. But how much those changes end up changing YOU, that’s entirely up to you. As it should be, I guess. Just don’t expect a cotton candy year ahead. Lots of shifting and moving. The upside, however, is that makes the year potentially very powerful…

What do you expect in 2014?
