Looking for What You Like: Tarot Forecast, Sept 26 – Oct 2

Back in the days when I worked in an office. I liked to give out cards at Christmas. Maybe stick a candy cane to them or something. But the real gift was the note inside.

For each person I worked with, I would spend a little while and write out a handwritten note of appreciation, mentioning something I particularly liked or enjoyed about them. I wanted each note to be personal, and completely heartfelt.

Sounds lovely, huh?

But you know the problem with that, right?

There’s always “that one guy,” or “that woman…” agh! The one that gets under your skin and drives you crazy.

“I don’t wanna do a note for So-and-So,” I’d think, a little belligerently, to tell the truth. Except it would be pretty rude to hand out sweet notes to everybody but that one.

This meant a few of my cards took an extra long time to compose. These challenging cards required me to step outside my ego a little bit and relax the defensive stance long enough to find something true, uplifting and kind in my heart to say about the somebody who absolutely drove me batty.

Funny thing, about those tough-to-write notes? While my notes were well received in general, the hard ones were the best received and without exception, my interactions always improved after writing one of those harder notes.

This week is a lot like that. Look for what you like–even if it’s harder to see than what’s in your face–and you’ll do well.

Audio Version of This Forecast – more rambly goodness.

Monday, Future – Four of Wands rx: Don’t run too far into the future, in your head. Don’t make a big deal out of, “Where is this going, where is this going, where is this going?” There is a lot of wiggle room in the energy right now. Wrong turns may be just the break you need. So get your chill on.

Tuesday, Unconscious Desires – Knight of Pentacles rx: It’s okay to want what you want. More money, more stuff, more friends, more comfort. It’s ALL okay to want, whatever it is you want, for yourself, without guilt. Your suffering does not add to the life of another. Lifting up yourself is contributing to the whole at the same time. If you find yourself fussing about wants, allow yourself the space to like what you like without guilt. Appreciate what is already around you; that will clear up any wobbles in your vibe in very short order.

Wednesday, What to Avoid – Ace of Cups: Normally, the Ace of Cups would be a small feeling, one that’s just taking root. So practice an awareness of your emotions. If you find yourself out of emotional sorts, actively look to soften that emotion and get re-centered. So back off from the specific negatives to more generally negative…to more generally positive. Any uncomfortable emotion, look to soften it up in the early stages before it gets bigger.

Shift toward positive emotions when feelings are little, before they've grown. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Thursday, Cons & Friendships – Two of Wands rx: Be aware of the egos of friends – or how they may step on your ego’s toes. There is no need for everybody to see things the same way. Your job is not to set anyone else’s vision. It’s to be true to your own vision. Today, the work is not to gain widespread agreement. The work is to live what you know.

Friday, Lesson – Empress: Nurture yourself! Self-care is awesome. Arts and crafts, or any kind of creative project, is especially rejuvenating. Soothe yourself and be gentle with you.

Saturday, Problem – The Fool: This combination says, the issue is what you don’t know. Your job is to gather more info. It’s a day for fact finding.

Sunday, Finances – Death rx: Ugh! No, I’m not going to say, “Your bank account looks like death warmed over.” Because, c’mon! But I will say, if you have been working on finances? You’ve made strides. To go further, add more harmony in your life and less discord. Don’t fight about money with anybody. Out loud or in your head, don’t bother with how anybody else believes money should be spent. Look for areas of agreement, and ignore other stuff. Think of a field that’s been burned out, with new seedlings germinating and popping up. It takes time, so be patient! Let it be and it will shift.

Overview/Advice, Blocking or Covering – Page of Wands rx: Stress from people pulling different ways this week. Don’t be overbearing in advocating for your opinion or option. You don’t have to agree with everybody or anybody. Just look to understand other perspectives. That is enough.

Affirmation – The better it gets, the better it gets. You will find what you’re looking for. So if you’re looking for ways to correct you kid, you’ll find issue after issue after issue to correct. If you’re looking for awesome things about your kid, you’ll find that, over and over and over, again too. Look for what you love. Don’t push against anything this week. It’s fine, not to find harmony with everybody and everything.  Just look for what you like. And have an awesome week!

Do you try to look for what you like in situations?

Trajectory of a Breakup: Weekly Tarot Forecast, July 20 – 26

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve had a romantic breakup. Been married 26 years! That’s a good thing.

But there are other sorts of breakups, too. Breaking up from a job, or a friend. Or even breaking up from a family member or an identity–it doesn’t matter what. The feelings of loss, realization, reassessment and integration are very similar. It’s pretty much a universal experience. And much as it can suck, it’s also pretty much a universally necessary experience. You cannot align yourself with what’s right for you if you’re still married to what’s not, you know?

Hello, Venus Retrograde! I’m looking at you. And don’t forget, Venus is not just love.

Taking this week as a whole, it looks like the trajectory of a breakup. We start out with potential pity party–seating for one–but as the week progresses, we’ll have the opportunity of coming out of it not only feeling good, be actually paving the way for better. From Monday (stop feeling sorry for yourself!) to Tuesday (acknowledge what you’re actually dealing with, no dramatic license), to Wednesday (decide what kind of person you want to be), that takes us to to Thursday (Ooops, we haven’t really been always our best, huh?) and Friday (but we can be, if we make adjustments). Saturday (hey, we HAVE made progress) and Sunday (being gentle with the less enlightened) rounds out the week.

Where is this all going? Advice says, God only knows so stay flexible–but do your best to be happy anyway! Personal happiness is an often-unacknowledged service to humanity. Click To Tweet

july 20-26

Monday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Suppression/Ten of Wands: What’s bringing you down? How you think about it, Sparky. It’s all in the perspective. If you feel heavy, look a little lighter outlook. Attitude adjustment, well advised.

Tuesday, Crowning Influences – Maturity/Ace of Pentacles reversed: What’s come to fruition? That’s what you have to deal with here. Not what should have happened, not what you would have wanted to happen. What you’ve got, right smack in front of you. Forget the alternate scripts, and stick to the facts today. It will work much better that way. [Aside – What’s up with making the Ace “Maturity?” ‘Cause the Ace I’d expect to be young, and Maturity to be more Queenish.]

Wednesday, Conscious Desires – The Miser/Four of Pentacles reversed: Wish to be more generous and brave. You can do that! Don’t fuss at yourself for where you feel you fall short. Look for ways to stretch. And thank you, for adding to the love and light in the world, man.

Thursday, Cons – Existence/The Magician: The challenges you are dealing with are real, entrenched–and possibly not any the easier with a realization of your own role. Don’t settle for victim status, even if you were “done wrong.” Review your own involvement in whatever situations you have on hand, because that’s a point of power for the future.

Friday, Outcome – Awareness/The Chariot: Clarity and breakthroughs today. Facing up to yourself is rough work, but pays significant dividends.

Saturday, Pros – Past Lives/The Moon reversed: Reflecting on the past offers a better measuring stick of growth than just about anything else right about now. See how far you’ve come? See how much crazy you’ve left behind? Go you!

Sunday, What to Avoid – Thunderbolt/The Tower reversed: Don’t smack-down or shock others today, right or not. Be truthful, always, but also considerate and kind in your honesty. It is much less disruptive and persuasion is a much sweeter route.

Overview/Advice, Future Life – Possibilities/Two of Wands reversed: Be open to exploring what you have never considered. Plan in pencil. Sometimes the Universe has a different agenda.

Affirmation: My greatest gift to give is my happiness. I used to always say, if your happiness depends on other people’s behavior, you’re on dicey ground. That’s dangerous! And if you can hold on to your optimism regardless of the situation, you can lighten the load for any around you. People NEED optimism. People NEED encouragement. People need happiness! It feeds them, and encourages and cheers them. Just like misery and pain rub off, so does joy. No matter what your life, your state, your situation or your company, joy brings up the energy in the room. That’s a pretty good gift to show up with, don’t you think?

Are you in the process of “breaking up” with anything?

Emotional Ebb, Flow and Flux: Weekly Tarot Forecast July 13 – 19

You know that little thing that is somehow, in your head, becomes a much bigger thing? A small slight becomes big hurt feelings. And how “that thing” can get sticky, hard to let go? Yeah, that. By the looks of this week’s forecast, I’m not alone in my struggles with releasing at times. I think we’ll have opportunity to let it go this week. There is a clear ebb and flow to the emotional energy in this spread. Work with where you’re at any given time, and remember nothing is “set” here. Flux is the constant, okay?

Monday, Body, Abundance/King of Pentacles reversed: There’s plenty on the table today. Only eat what you are most hungry for, though. There’s possibility to overdo, literally or metaphorically. You may have to choose between multiple, attractive options. Trying to consume everything can preclude full satisfaction of anything. Prioritize, taking on only what you most want (and can fully attend to) is the most satisfying approach.

Tuesday, Immediate Future – Clinging to the Past/Five of Cups reversed: Lingering hurt feelings over long-ago injuries. Melancholy visits. This isn’t intense so much as it is irksome, because this is all “old news” generated moodiness. On the plus side, it’s short-term. Acknowledge the hurt instead of fighting it, as it tends to pass quicker that way. Try distraction, cleaning and counting your blessings.

Wednesday, Friends and Family – Ordinariness/Eight of Pentacles: There is massive comfort in the familiar. If possible, surround yourself with familiar faces and favorite activities. Shared chores especially are satisfying.

Thursday, What to Leave in the Past – The Outsider/Five of Pentacles: Let go of looking to fit in so much, eh? You’re not broken if you don’t. Being one of a kind can be a little lonely, but it’s authentic. Celebrate your uniqueness and appreciate the special light you have to offer because of it. Who wants to be a knockoff, anyway? Love YOU.

Friday, Conscious Desires – Flowering/Queen of Pentacles: There’s a drive to create, especially in the tangible, physical sense. Cooking, artwork, sewing, and crafts are all great examples of rewarding activities to feed this vibe. I get the feeling of being proud of accomplishments and pleased with progress toward mastery.  This is a lovely comeback from yesterday, with focus on where you shine. Awesome!

Saturday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Integration/Temperance reversed: Growth is never linear in my experience. It’s like the waves, washing in and out, in and out. When one learns to meditate, at first distractions dominate the entire process. But if you gently set those intrusions aside and refocus, over and over again, eventually you can train the mind to behave. That’s where progression comes into play. Adapting new perspectives that serve your growth is no different.

Sunday, Friendship – Rebirth/Ten of Swords reversed: Opportunity to get over hurt feelings. Look for a supportive narrative, a workable reframe of perspective, to keep moving forward.

Overview/Advice, Crowning Influences – Stress/Seven of Wands reversed: Stress makes for short tempers and pessimistic perspectives. When you are feeling emotional, overwhelmed or otherwise emotionally indisposed, any kind of concrete, practical activity is extraordinarily helpful and even healing. Upset with a friend? Do laundry. (You can wash the “ouch” right out of your clothes.) Worried about a family member? Run errands or write a to-do list. (Taking care of business reinforces a sense of safety, manageability.) Irritated with your mate? Clean the kitchen. (Purifying the energy you are consuming.) The idea here is both reducing the stress in your world by taking care of something that needs to happen, and introducing the general vibe into your energy field that feels lacking if possible. You don’t need to match the source of stress with a symbolic cure but if you can, by all means do!

Affirmation: The Universe knows me, and the Universe adores me. Yes, sometimes life is hard. Yes, sometimes, stuff goes wrong. I try to keep the little picture versus the big picture in mind. I’m not one to saccharin-coat everything and say, “Oh it’s all for the best,” or “Oh, it’s all part of God’s plan.” Because nobody wants to hear that when they are hurting! I will say, however, we don’t know how individual events fit into the context of our time on the physical plane. We don’t know what sort of goals we might have set before coming down to Earth, in terms of what we wanted to learn and experience. We do know sometimes, things are hard and we do the best we can with them. If you feel a sense of spiritual connect and support, call upon it. Trust that there is always love for you, even when your life doesn’t meet your expectations. Trust you always deserve love and receive love, however it’s delivered.

Just trust, that’s all. A little faith goes a long way.

How’s your week looking?

Regrets and Recoveries: Weekly Tarot Forecast, July 6 – 12

happy-mothers-day-tarot-kitty.jpgI recently had to put my very sweet, psychic cat to sleep. I knew it was coming, having plenty of warning. I did the best I could for her, to keep her comfortable and to make her last days happy. She’s always been a chow hound and was on medication that made her hungry, so I fed her whenever she wanted, which was a lot.

But even as I was preparing to take her in to the vets for the  last time–she hid when she heard me get the carrier, but was too sick to hide well–knowing it was the right thing to do (and wanting with every fiber of my being not to do it), I found myself thinking, “What if?”

“What if I’d taken her in sooner? What if I were a better healer? What if I had practiced my Reiki more and worked harder? What if I’d prayed harder, done more magic, held more faith?” I believe in magic and miracles. So why couldn’t I pull some of that off for her? Some people would think that ridiculous, and others would say, of course I shouldn’t blame myself for my cat getting cancer. But feelings don’t always fit into tidy little boxes.

I never knew I’d miss being woken up before the sun rises by a cat hollering at me, demanding to be fed.

Looking at the week as a whole, I’m getting a strong whiff of “what if?” Looks like regret and recovery color the emotional landscape in the coming week.

Monday, Mind, Playfulness/Page of Wands reversed: Is your mind playing tricks on you? Or maybe you’re feeling a little cranky? Would be a good day to lighten up and not take yourself too seriously.

Tuesday, Co-workers – Schizophrenia/Two of Swords: Well, I don’t like the looks of that! I mean, who wants to see the word “schizophrenia” associated with co-workers? Expect indecisiveness or endless weighing of options around the job.

Wednesday, Parnter – Adventure/Page of Pentacles: Your partner(s) = grounding. I used to say sometimes, “Even going to the grocery store can be an adventure with the right attitude.” I’d add to that, anything can be an adventure, with the right attitude–and the right company. Seek the right company.

Thursday, Underlying Influences – Intensity/Knight of Wands reversed: Look at what you feel driven to do today. Look at issues where your reaction is out of proportion to the stimulus. Find yourself speaking with way more emphasis than expected? Or is someone else being more intense that you’d think a situation warranted? That’s like a big, fat neon arrow pointing to what’s really going on.

Friday, What to Know – The Dream/Six of Cups: Know that your vision of what’s ahead could be unrealistic, naive or lacking full insight into the nuances of reality. Potential to dream things up and not allow for reasonable setbacks in planning.

Saturday, What you Can’t Change – Healing/King of Cups reversed: It takes time to get over hurt. The only way out of pain is through it. Allow yourself to feel what you feel and let that energy go. It can and will, once expended.

Sunday, Hobbies and Talents – Participation/Four of Wands reversed: Don’t sulk! Get out there and do what you love (and are good at doing). The day is a lot more rewarding that way.

Overview/Advice, Present, Ice-olation/Three of Swords reversed: Pain subsides over time, and when it’s properly felt. Don’t allow yourself to become isolated and wallow, but do allow yourself to feel whatever it is you feel. This appears to be a healing, a lessening of hurt, but the hurt is still there. Not forever, but for now. Hugs anyone? ♥

Affirmation: Every “reality” has been focused by someone into being. When I or someone I love struggle, one of my perspective hacks is to tell myself, “There is a reason any person is where they are. If someone is struggling, they must have something to learn or grow from it, or they would not be there.” Don’t confuse this with blaming folks for their own headaches, because blaming requires a judgemental stance and I don’t go there. Honestly, I find this type of reframe incredibly comforting, because it gives purpose to the sting. If I’m in a tough spot due my choices, it’s easy enough to slip on this re-frame. If conscious choices don’t seem to factor in, then I put it in context of divine purpose, soul contracts and choices of the higher self. Maybe that doesn’t resonate with you, but I’ll tell you if you can make the leap from “life sucks” to “serves a higher purpose, even if I don’t understand it right now,” the cost of admission is the same but you’ll feel a lot of relief.

I think I’m doing alright, letting go of my regrets to make way for the recovery bit. But if you have a pet, go give them a nuzzle, okay?

Are you dealing with regrets and recovery?

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?

Reaching – Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Feb. 16 – 22

Weekly Tarot Forecast Feb 15

Often after I look at the weekly cards, I search for a story, an observation to give it some context. Looking at these week’s forecast is like seeing a roadmap to all kinds of life transitions. I can see the process I went through when transitioned to self-employment outlined in these cards. I can see the process of leaving my family’s religion here. I can see my courtship and marriage here. I can see my adjustments becoming a parent here, in these cards. The process is defined this week, with helpful hints for handling hurts, distraction and delay. If you are undergoing an important transition, I think you’ll see yourself here as well.

Monday, Partner – Ten of Pentacles: There’s comfort, joy, love and riches (of many kinds) with the partnership of whome/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_htmlver is “family” to you. This is speaking to old school connections, people who are genuinely invested in your welfare, usually long-term companions. A family member, mate, sister or “brother from another mother” has a lot to offer–if you are willing to act in partnership.

Tuesday, What to Let Go of in the Future – Three of Swords Rx: Let the old heartbreaks die already! Sometimes we clutch our wounds as if they alone provide self-identity. Pain shapes identity without question, but should not comprise identity. Big difference. Because it’s not our history of hurts that makes as who we are so much how we choose to heal from that history! Release the wounds, while honoring the lessons. It’s like cutting a tether to the ground so you can fly.

Wednesday, Outcome – The Sun: Joy! Happiness! Hope! This is my favorite “outcome.” Revel in the day. Follow your bliss to find enchantment. It’s a good day for play, dancing and any kind of fun.  :-)

Thursday, Crowing Influences – King of Cups: Honor thy heart, grasshopper, and act in accordance. What’s in your heart today is a shining beacon that not only shows you the way, but strengthens and encourages everyone you touch. Honest, heartfelt expressions spread hope. A day full of love, should you choose to act in a loving way yourself. One gentle caution though: love is not always as effortless as it sounds. Vulnerability and risk are the price of this particular brand of magic. My opinion? Worth it.

Friday, Cons – Six of Wands Rx: Don’t overcommit. I’m seeing this as wanting to have more to give than you actually do. There may be a tendency to overpromise and then, you’re on the hook. Delay promises of assistance until you’ve tallied up your own accounts. If you hastily offer what you cannot comfortably afford—be it time, energy, money or whatever—you’ll soon enough regret the obligation.

Saturday, Action – Page of Wands Rx: Delays are likely. I see this as progress, albeit not quite enough to suit us. There is a good chance the delay itself will serve a useful purpose, though. It often does, right? So try to roll with it.

Sunday, Clarification – King of Wands Rx: Why the delay yesterday? Factors beyond your control! That’s okay. It is what it is. Just know it’s going to take a minute to work through those bigger plans. Accept and release attachment to timetables. We’re so impatient sometimes! It would be a great idea, though, to schedule something special today. Activities that fire up your imagination and get your blood pumping help release the feeling of being thwarted you may otherwise have lingering.

Overview/Advice, Blocking or Covering – Ace of Wands: The passion for your plans are there, but the details are not. Run through the facts, review background information, and begin planning. Don’t lose your fire. Just know you need more.

Affirmations (we have two, as one card fell out in the shuffle): Desire is the beginning of all creation. I look for more reasons to appreciate. These statements are like two sides of the same coin.

Desire is the wanting, acknowledging what you do not have—it’s the motivation for change. Desire is the Ace of Wands we got as advice! It can either block us (if we take it as straight up dissatisfaction, proof of our failings), or blanket our efforts with a focus, a purpose. How we interpret our desire makes all the difference in which way steers us. Focus your desire not on what you don’t want, but firmly upon what you do. There is a huge difference between fear-based desire (e.g. I don’t want to be alone, or I don’t want to be broke) and goal-based desire (I want a partner, I want comfort). Energetically and subconsciously, negative words don’t “take” well, so the Universe doesn’t hear the “don’t.” Focus your desire on the “do” instead.

Gratitude is not only the outcome of desires fulfilled, but the fuel which propels us toward desires. Appreciation lifts us when we’re low. Appreciation energetically aligns us with achieving more of whatever we are appreciating. Appreciation provides energy, impetus, connection and facilitates flow. Spending even 30 seconds in a state of true, deep gratitude immediately raises our vibration, opens the heart chakra and invokes a type of magnetism, an alignment with whatever we are appreciating. The value of gratitude cannot be overstated. It’s one of the most powerful tools at our disposal. Use it!

Between the two affirmations, we have a very simple formula for making changes. Acknowledge desire and appreciate progress.

So, how’s your week looking?
