01/23/14: Once and Right / The World

The World

In “Crossing” influences, we have The World. Responsibility, and particularly doing what you know is right I expect to be a driving force today. Maybe nobody else would know if you half-assed it. But YOU would know.

Do it once. Do it right. I don’t know exactly why, but I’ve got this feeling that those that don’t put in the effort now are going to have that deficit come back to visit.

Saturn types, you’re sitting pretty. Everybody else? Emulate!

Are you focused on “getting it right” about now?

01/22/14: Stabilize! 4 of Pentacles

Four of PentaclesIn the “Action” position, the Four of Pentacles’ message is clear: stabilize.

Get your budget in order, get your thoughts in order, get your emotions in order. Know where you stand! Fix the leaks, make the appointments, finalize the plans, make the backup plans and confirm the reservations. Tie up loose ends any place you find them. As we are in the suit of Pentacles, practical, real-world concerns are especially appropriate to address.

One of the world’s best antidotes to angst is action. Once you actually take care of business, you’ll realize you are on solid ground. I can live with that.

Do you need to stabilize your situation now?

01/21/14: Have or Eat the Cake? / 2 of Swords

Two of SwordsThis Two of Swords is pretty to-the-point, don’t you think? So I will be, too. Or two, ha!

Paired with “What you can’t change,” this combo clearly states you cannot have your cake and eat said cake. A choice has to be made. Weigh out options in terms of your goals and know that even trying not to choose IS choosing. There is no escape!

So embrace it. This is part of living, man. It sometimes helps me to remember that many choices do lead to the same destination ultimately in the bigger journey. It’s a question of what the scenery and road conditions are like along the way…

You still choosing?

01/20/14: Not Alone / 3 of Cups

Three of CupsWell thank God! Something a little cheerier for today, with the Three of Cups pairing up with the “What to Know” positional card. The Three of Cups points to community and merry-making, showing us a dancing, drinking celebration between close friends.

Know you have support. Know you have community. Know you have real friends. Call upon the people you love. Call upon the people that love you. This is your family, your tribe, your people, wherever you’ve obtained them. The particulars are not as relevant as the sense of belonging, being among kindred spirits.

The message today is as simple as it is powerful: you are not alone.

Do you feel the support of a community?

01/19/14: Trouble with Transition / 6 of Swords Rx

6 of Swords RxIn Tarot parlance, the significator represents YOU, the questioner. Paired with the Six of Swords reversed, we’re talking about having difficulty making a transition, leaving a hard time or painful situation behind. Trying to move to something better, but having a rough time staying out of the waves of emotion. Reversed, it’s not too long before the lady falls right out of that boat!

Like in all Tarot Sixes, there is strength in cooperative projects. This card is associated with Mercury in Aquarius, so I’m thinking (Mercury) some detachment (Aquarius) may be in order. Ha!

Consider getting a second opinion! Ask an outsider for perspective if you cannot see your situation objectively. If a safe outside evaluation isn’t available, at the very least try to look at it as someone without your emotional investment might. Pretend, damn it. That “looking in” angle will give you insight needed to get the boat aright without panicking and wearing yourself out, flailing in the water.

Are you having trouble with a transition?

01/18/14: Truth = Needle in a Haystack? / Hanged Man Rx, Page of Pentacles Rx

Hanged Man, Page Pentacles RxThe cards today make me think of a 3000-page government report, with the main conclusions buried on page 1093, midway into the fourteenth footnote. Finding what you are looking for here is like going on an archeological dig. Except the site is littered with modern reproductions amidst historical treasures. It’s hard to suss out!

The Hanged Man reversed and the Page of Pentacles reversed insisted on popping out together today. What are you gonna do, man? They are paired with “Crowning Influences” to make up our daily forecast.

Honestly? This duo makes me want to take a nap!

The Hanged Man reversed signals lack of clarity, possibly paralyzed with wondering, whether to act or wait. He literally doesn’t know which end is up. The reversed Page of Pentacles gets overwhelmed with detail and tends towards OCD, fixating on bits and pieces of the puzzle while losing sight of the picture on the box. As crowing influences, these two cards combine to make for a difficult-to-penetrate layer of muck.

I’m sorry to be handing you this. But it is what it is. Expect smokescreens, misdirection, omissions, unnecessary detail, mixed motivations, and hidden agendas. And don’t be shocked if there is an unconscious element to it all, or you suddenly realize some of the confusion is stemming from within. As they are showing up as “crowning influences,” some may be either psychologically rooted or expressions of people in power.

The truth is there, somewhere, under layers of confusion. My best advice to you is to do a gut-check to point the way. Your intuition will never steer you wrong, even if the outer presentation of reality might.

And if it’s possible, I’m not joking about the nap. Sleep on important decisions. It helps.

Are you confused yet?
