Plates Overflowth: Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Feb 9 -15

 thumbnail

These cards could be talking directly about my last week. I have been completely rebuilding all my websites from the ground up out of necessity and it’s not my idea of a good time. But in the end, I’ll be a lot better off for facing it. Keep that idea in mind yourself, if you face some struggles this week.

Looking at these cards as a whole, I’m expecting a week of INTENSE. Sorry, kids! Now, I’m glad Mercury is prepping to move forward again (Feb. 11), I’m glad we’re all making progress and all. But doesn’t mean it’s easy. Not saying it’s not ultimately worthwhile, though. Just not easy.

My sincere apologies for those looking for a break, because it looks like a “plate overflowth” with plenty of hustle type of week. The good news is I’m liking the higher numbers on the cards. That’s indicative of being at the end of a cycle. Hallelujah! But I am also expecting the possibility of overwhelm. If you’re a crier, pack some tissue, man. May come in handy.

Monday, What is Hidden – Knight of Cups: Just how intensely you are feeling is NOT evident to the casual observer. Don’t be saying somebody “should have known” because they just cannot know what’s in your head and your heart today. Be sure you’re on top if it yourself and do realize your feelings are…in motion, okay? Knight energy is fast, and can quickly shift. If you don’t like how you’re feeling, give it a couple of minutes. On the plus side, the right song, artwork, a book or a movie will likely have the power to move your emotional state in short order. Take advantage if you need a boost.

Tuesday, Resolution – Eight of Pentacles: You solve problems one step at a time. Practical, physical, and careful efforts towards the goal are most effective. Whatever you’re trying to master? You’ve no doubt been steadily improving as you go. So don’t look at the time it took to get here as “wasted.” It’s not. Look at is as perfecting your processes.

Wednesday, What to Avoid – Six of Pentacles: Don’t give what you don’t have to give just to be perceived as nice or because you do not know how someone else is going to solve their problems.  Don’t lend money you do not have to share. Don’t accept responsibilities you do not have adequate time and energy to fulfill. Be prepared to say “no” today. Sometimes the most loving thing you can do is express faith in others to figure out their own lives.

Thursday, Present – Judgment: Regroup day! It’s appropriate to consider what has been going wrong, but also what has been going right. This is not about blame. It’s about understanding. It helps you know where you’re going, you know? This energy is not a ticket to the guilt trip express. It’s more an opportunity to take a deep breath and consult your map. No recrimination. Just information.

Friday, Blocking or Covering, Knight of Swords Rx: Uh oh. This strikes me as a sharp tongue. Sarcasm may get in the way of achieving your goals today if you’re not conscious or careful. Control your mouth!

Saturday, Clarification – Eight of Wands Rx: Determination you may have been awaiting is imminent. This isn’t the letter or phone call or news itself, but a knowing, it’s not going to be long before now. News is coming.

Sunday, Past Life – Ten of Wands Rx: To me, this strikes as an awareness of times you’ve undertake more than you could manage and had to let it go. Neither good or bad in itself, but instructive, no?

Overview/Advice – Ten of Swords: Ow! To me, this says overwhelm pure and simple. This looks to be a very fast moving week and at times, it’s too much stimulation. While this card can sometimes indicate a betrayal, it does not always. What it does consistently point to, however, is an apex, where whatever it is peaks, maximum capacity. It’s a difficult energy. Your best bet this week is understanding it will probably have “moments” and being prepared with distraction, pleasant activities and arranging to connect with loved ones. Does it make you happy? Indulge in joy to heal any stings.

Affirmation – It is my dominant intent to look for what I want to see. This isn’t a fear-based approach to living. It’s a goal-based approach to living. Of course, you do your work. But as you do, acknowledge progress. And notice the bits and pieces of your dreams materializing in your daily, waking life. That turns it up.

We’ve got this. In some ways, these kinds of weeks are very encouraging to me because when you have this much motion, you also have progress. It can be uncomfortable, stressful and sometimes, upsetting. But it’s with a point! I am more than willing to deal with discomfort, so long as there is a point.

Are you running around with an overflowing plate?

Living Intentionally: Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Feb 2 – 8

thumbnail

How appropriate: Mercury Retro giving us a weird, blur-fest image. But you know, it’s the image I had to work with. And this retrograde has been a BEAR, I must say! I am working with what I got. I am getting stuff done and my stuff is working, but without exception, it’s totally not the “stuff” I’d intended to get done. You know?

I’m betting you do!

It looks to be an interesting week, with the first part concerned with identifying what doesn’t quite fit, and the last part with changing that. I believe the changes will be helpful overall, but perhaps a little bittersweet at the same time. Think like graduating from school, or leaving a job, or moving. It might be the best thing, great overall, but with the shift, there’s also a sense things won’t be the same anymore. It looks like that, this week.

Monday, What is Hidden – 3 of Wands: Nobody can see exactly how much effort—and expectation—lies beneath a casual glance. Be conscious of your own unspoken expectations, because they could color your behavior in unexpected ways if you’re not cognizant.

Tuesday, Unconscious Desires – Three of Cups Rx: Looking for some more space? Have a previously unacknowledged drive to lose some dead weight in your social circle? This strikes me as feeling out-of-time with companions, or perhaps a desire to become more out-of-time.

Wednesday, Future Life – Five of Swords: Fight for what’s right. As it plays out, you can expect to win. Woot!

Thursday, Crossing – High Priestess Rx: Life is complicated by failing to listen to that inner voice.  If you cannot hear it, you NEED quiet time, away from distractions competing for your attention. If it doesn’t arise naturally, mindfully create it. The urge to move (which is likely) coupled with an inability to hear your inner guidance adequately is not an advisable mix. You need to either 1. Find a connection to your inner radar before acting or 2. delay action.

Friday, Outcome – Temperance Rx: Oil and water will never mix; sometimes a decision has to be made. Aside: there could be a drive to overindulge afoot tonight as well. A drink is fine, but if you’re out and about, see to it there’s a designated driver before you start pounding down the happy juice, okay? Stay safe out there!

Saturday, Crowning Influences – The Hierophant Rx:  Traditional ends may be achieved via nontraditional approaches. Or vice versa. Flexibility is definitely an asset here. No judging. Keep an open mind.

Sunday,  Cons – Two of Pentacles: This card is pretty self-explanatory. Expect plenty on your plate, with possibly competing interests to manage here.

Overview/Advice – Five of Cups: This is not a happy overview card! I’m thinking by looking at the rest of the week there are definitely adjustments over the course of the week, new coordinates being laid. Connections or situations may crop up that just don’t work anymore, like favorite shoes you’ve outgrown. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to abandon everyone or everything you love, but you very well may experience a loss. If so, allow yourself to feel sad! That’s the best way to work through the feelings.

Affirmation – I practice the Science of Deliberate Creation. I won’t go all “Law of Attraction” on you here, despite my choice of Oracle cards. I will just say this week, don’t live by default. THINK about what you want, and move in accordance with those desires. Live intentionally.

Then again, that’s never inappropriate advice.

Do you try to live intentionally?

Serpentine! Weekly Flow Tarot, Oct. 12 – 18

Weekly Flow Tarot Oct 13 - 18

I currently find myself in a very strange position: becoming successful in a venue I had given up on. It’s something I put a huge amount of energy into several years ago, doing my absolute best to make it work, but failed to turn it into what I’d envisioned. I’d let it go and (I thought) moved on. But somehow, when I wasn’t really looking, boom! Pretty much overnight this all-but-abandoned venture is now taking off and I’m in the center of an energetic swirl.

I’m still adjusting. And you know, I probably should be celebrating, but I’m not so much. I am incredibly grateful, don’t get me wrong. I know it’s a gift and I’m not one to intentionally waste gifts. But I’m also terribly confused. This is nothing like what I imagined! There is plenty of ugly that goes with the flowers. And I honestly don’t know why it showed up in my lap. There are people so much more qualified, more deserving. Who am I? That’s what I ask myself. But for better or worse, it’s here and it’s my job to make dinner out of what’s on my plate. Us woo-woo folks get just as confused by life as everybody else. Maybe more sometimes because we straddle more than one world.

But the forecast this week? Totally smacks of that vibe. Confusing success with a side of what-the-Hell?

Because it’s that time of the year, I am pulling out the Zombie Tarot for the next few weeks. This deck being who it is, I also set the intention to only read the cards upright. Reversals in this deck are unnecessarily difficult to decode for me, so I’m reading upright. Duly noting, however, that almost all the cards stubbornly appeared reversed before I put them aright. Oy! So the week is still not easy—not surprising with the pesky Mercury rx. But we do what we can, huh?

Monday, Goal  – Ten of Cups: An optimistic start to the week, with a goal of idyllic bliss. That’s nice. Kind of wish I could end the forecast right here, huh? Unfortunately, if you get a look at the picture, chaos is not too far away and there is a zombie making progress in reaching the shore. Oops.

Tuesday, What you can Change – Four of Wands: Who has a key to “your house?” Who is in your intimate circle? Who gets invited to your party? That’s what the Four of Wands is talking about to me here. What you can change is who you open your door to and let into your psyche. Choose wisely.  

Wednesday, Disappointment – Six of Wands: Since the Six of Wands is generally a card of victory and acclaim, having it paired with disappointment is an especially poignant combination. “Empty victory” comes to mind. To avoid disappointment with accomplishments, it’s a damned good idea to firmly bear in mind with what you really want to achieve. I can pretty much guarantee you, “success” looks different when you get there than it did in your head. Maybe not the main part, the meat-and-potatoes part, but the sexy, dessert, won’t-this-be-ever-so-keen-when-people-cheer-me? part. Keep your priorities foremost the whole time and you’ll know what’s up as you continue to climb the mountain.

Thursday, Problem – Three of Pentacles: We’re back to things not being as we’d planned. Life is off-script. Damn it! Work on your improv skills.

Friday, Relationship – Eight of Wands: Ah, too much going on to track! This feels somewhat frantic and confused to me. I know we’d all feel better with clear-cut, well-defined lines. Well, they ain’t there. Color pretty anyway and worry about the lines later. You’ll find them soon enough.

Saturday, What to Leave in the Past – Wheel of Fortune: I know sometimes life doesn’t work out as we’ve planned, but that doesn’t mean we’re excused from goal-setting completely. For me, the trick for effective goal setting is to focus on what I want to accomplish, the outcome more than the process. I do know the “close your eyes and hope for the best” process isn’t always advisable, though.

Sunday, Conscious Desires – The Hierophant: Oh my. This looks like a wish for somebody to just “lay it out” for us with a step-by-step how-to. I get that, I really do. But always, it’s about the individual choice. Alternatively, we could be talking an awareness of the need for alone, quiet time That would be a worthy indulgence.

Overview/AdviceQueen of Cups: Keep your emotions in check, while still honoring them. Listen to your feelings, and get quiet enough you can hear the inner voice. This looks like a week where there will be some surprises, and where staying balanced and centered requires specifically directed effort. Do I even need to say that effort is worth it?

AffirmationAqua: “Experience Peace & Calm.” Translation? Meditate! Downtime. Ground, center, devote some time to yourself and your own peace of mind.

Flexibility is key again this week. If someone shoots at you, don’t just stand wondering why on Earth they would do such a thing, when you’d never have guessed it coming. Serpentine! I have the distinct feeling those who adjust quickly, stay tuned in, and are quick to correct course when things don’t work out just so—while continuing to make rational steps towards things working out “just so”—will be the winners overall. My advice? Stay frosty and be ready to serpentine!

Damn. These cards are awfully loud and it feels like they are talking straight to me. Do you hear them talking to you, too?

Optimistic Resolutions: Weekly Flow, May 26-30

Weekly Tarot May 26 - 30

Well, I’m delighted and relieved to see a more pleasant outlook for the coming week than I got for the weekend! Plus looks like a nice day off for those of you who get that sort of thing. I’m expecting an active week with those Wands showing up and the generally active tone of the overall forecast. Possibility of some sort of resolution on Friday. Overall, this week is feeling optimistic!

Monday, Ten of Cups: Great day for relaxing with loved ones, friends and family alike. Looks harmonious and happy. Yay!  Be sure to let the folks around you know how much you appreciate them. It will be well received. Caveat: Any time we’re talking Cups, there may be alcohol flowing so please, no unnecessary risks.

Tuesday, Three of Wands: A day of expectation. Look for news, feedback or an update coming in on something you’ve initiated previously, especially via mail although not necessarily. Most likely it’s positive, and deserved. This card often foretells a payout of some sort. Hope that’s how it works out for you!

Wednesday, The Hierophant: Well, it’s the New Moon in Gemini, and the Hierophant would TOTALLY approve of a spiritual ritual of some sort. New Moons are for new starts. What do you want to start? If you can incorporate traditional symbolism into the mix, it will be all that much more effective. In the everyday, muggle world, make any calls you need to make to big institutions today, tie up loose ends and present yourself conservatively and traditionally. Your best bet is going old school.

Thursday, Five of Swords: I often struggle with this card, trying to decide who is defeating whom. But here, I want to say the victor will be the one who has the clearest communication and sharpest ideas. So if you’re facing off, have your points outlined and stick to the facts for the best outcome. Quick, concise and to the point for the win.

Friday, Eight of Wands reversed:  Good chance what you thought was up in the air, not so much! I’m seeing this as a likely conclusion to something or end to uncertainty.

Affirmation for the week: I love and approve of myself. It’s so easy to play what-if, second guess and doubt ourselves to death. I’m horrified at some of the self-talk I hear—people tell their Tarot readers things, you know. I often suggest that people treat themselves with as much kindness, compassion and understanding as they would a good friend. Because some of the things people say to themselves, they would never dream of saying to their dog, let alone another human being.

First of all, forgive yourselves your mistakes. We all make them, and you don’t get the privilege of doing without. And secondly, it’s much easier to approve of yourself if you do your best. Your best today will probably be better than your best last year or last week. That’s not a reason for self-scorn. It’s evidence  of growth.

So cut yourself some slack for the past and focus on doing what you can now. I’m willing to bet life will flow smoother when you do that.

How’s your week looking?

03/08/14: Fast Moves! / 8 of Wands

8 of Wands

The problem? It’s moving TOO FAST! So sayth the Eight of Wands teamed up with “problem,” that is.

The upside is that the anxiety doesn’t last long. The downside is that all this “swoosh” creates anxiety. The problem here isn’t so much what’s going on but the speed at which it’s going on. You know?

Eh, is what it is. The Universe moves at it’s own pace and it’s our job to adjust. Just realize, it’s fast right now so practice your flexibility, okay? Do your stretches!

Are you ready for fast moves?

01/28/14: Junk the Junk Food! / 8 of Wands

8 of Wands BodyWhat’s the first thing that goes out the window when you’re under stress? If you’re me, it’s good eating habits! I have trouble mustering the energy to cook but absolutely crave sweets and comfort foods when I’m feeling under fire. Not a good mix! I have given in plenty to those urges. Enough to speak from experience, it’s a bad idea. And I have the waistline to prove it. Ha!

I have been seeing the Eight of Wands a LOT lately, so wouldn’t have taken special note of it today if it weren’t paired up with the “Body” card, said to address “health, body image issues, or the physical impact a situation has on you.”

Stress, worry, and not having resolutions takes it toll on us physically. I’m not saying it’s going to give anybody a heart attack. Worrying about the heart attack isn’t helpful in avoiding the heart attack, man!

But the general energetic weather recently has people run down. Over time, that is a problem. Especially considering this is the Eight of Wands, I’d venture some are at a crossroads with physical issues—where health conditions could go either way, from inconsequential to chronic.

Even if you’re not facing health issues though, abandoning good habits and indulging in bad ones (like me and the junk food) will just leave you with less clarity and energy to deal with wherever those wands land. The flip side is that caring for ourselves physically makes it easier to effectively manage stressors. Duly noted, Tarot.

Don’t let lack of certainty in life dissuade you from lovingly taking care of yourself, as doing otherwise is a very short-lived type of self-consolation. If anything, let stress encourage more vigilance, because being kind to your body is one thing you absolutely DO have control over. And you need to be at your best to handle what comes. So do!

Do you ignore your body when faced with stress?
