Minding Your Own Business is Good Medicine: Tarot Forecast, Oct 31 – Nov 6, 2016

“I’ve decided to forget worrying about my kids,” I told my mom the other day. “I am staying out of their business completely and I’m a lot happier this way.”

“Really, Dixie? I don’t know how you can manage it.”

I was surprised. Really surprised. I thought my mom was pretty darned good at this! With the exception of an occasional lapse, she almost never tells us what to do or expresses judgement over our choices. (Okay. I’m not counting that face she makes sometimes when she sees something she doesn’t like. She can’t help that.)

“Oh, I worry all the time,” Mom confided. “It never stops. I just try to keep my mouth shut unless I’m asked.”

She clearly does a pretty good job of it.

For me, it’s not about caring. I care every iota as much as I ever have.

It’s just that my kids are adults now and I respect that. I respect the fact their choices are not mine, any more than my choices are my mother’s. I respect the fact they have access to the exact same resources as I do–those of the Universal stream of wellness. And I respect that, as individuals, it’s THEIR JOB to live their lives and figure out what they want and how to live. Not mine.

Also, it’s a whole lot nicer to say, “I’m sure you’ll figure it out” and mean it than to try and figure it out for them. It’s just good medicine, minding your own business, all around.

This week? This would be a very handy philosophy to adopt in general. (Okay, I think “always,” not just this week. But I am admittedly biased.)

Tarot Forecast Halloween Week

Happy Halloween, y’all! I decided to skip the Zombie Tarot this week even though the forecast begins on Halloween because why? I didn’t feel like using it. Reason enough, man.

If you’re into audio, here’s an audio version of this weekly forecast reading. You can also subscribe to the audios (and whatever else I toss up there) on iTunes here or you can download the files or subscribe via rss here.  Because who knows what I might decide to record and toss up there?

We’ve got some inverted cards, especially in the beginning of the week. So the energy is there, but not freely expressing. So we’ll probably have a slow start to the week, but no worries. It clears nicely by the end of the week. Looking at themes, I’m seeing the idea of being responsible for your own self and only your own self, and butting out of everybody else’s self. Even if you “know they are wrong!” Especially if you feel that way. You know why?

Trusting another to work out their own life, their own thoughts, and their own course is an act of respect and love. Anything short of that is sending the message, “I don’t trust you.” Not only that, but “I don’t trust your connection to the Universe to get you through this is the best way possible. So I have will do for you.” That, my friends, is not true and it’s a fancy way of avoiding mirrors.

Monday, Ten of Pentacles rx: I like this card in general. But today, I want to tell you to be aware of your purchases and put off impulse purchases. I don’t see this as heavy, not a big financial issue, but more like buying something and seeing it on sale the next day. Also? Extrapolate the concepts towards energy resources and not just cash. Like you may start something that requires more time, energy or effort than you were prepared for. So expenditures of any sort may demand more than you had initially budgeted. Not a shortage so much as just more than you expected.

Tuesday, The Empress rx: The Empress is a peach no matter how she shows up. Today though…don’t mother those that don’t want to be mothered. Don’t meddle or offer unsolicited advice. You’ll have much better luck focusing on your OWN projects instead of other people’s projects.

Wednesday, Ten of Wands: Here’s one I’d rather see inverted! But you get what you get. Many tasks. Feelings of being burdened with responsibilities. Ask yourself, which are truly yours. Some may not be. Secondly, prioritize for the important stuff and let everything else go. Focus first and foremost on what matters truly, and the day will go well.

Thursday, Queen of Wands rx: Normally when this lady shows up reversed, there can be potential for being stubborn or overcontrolling. But right now, let’s hone in on your disposition and general attitude. There is a tendency to be fussy over stuff that isn’t that big deal in the bigger picture. Like a child who has missed their nap, there may be a little crankiness out in the wild. If your mood is off, cut yourself and everybody else some slack. Withdraw instead of striking out and allow yourself time to get back to your happy space.

Friday, Eight of Wands: Stuff may feel unsettled and up in the air. But the energy is moving quickly and it will be settled in short order. Know that all the components already in place. Like someone who has already sent off a letter that cannot be retrieved, what’s going down is a done deal. So let it be and call upon your faith because that’s what you’ve got.

Saturday, Nine of Cups: Weekend looks great! This is “the wish card.” All is right with the world kind of feeling. Expect a good day and enjoy it.

Sunday, Four of Swords: It’s an opportunity to set down your burdens and rest and replenish. It should be a happy, fun and replenishing time for most over the weekend. Have fun!

Overview/Advice: Page of Cups: Be loving, be kind, and live from your heart, yes. But to expand, pay a lot of attention to your feelings! They are your GPS. If it feels icky, don’t touch it! Please don’t let your brain talk you out of it. You don’t need a list of reasons why you don’t feel it. And likewise, if you’re feeling excited, go with it! Don’t separate yourself from your own internal signal by discounted it. Your emotions are extremely important, this is where you get so much guidance! So throughout the week, look to let your emotions chart your course. Honor them, as they are SO valuable and important! A lot of psychic and intuitive info comes in this way.

Affirmation: I am at peace with my age. What are you gonna do if you’re not? Makes a lot of sense to make peace with whatever you cannot change. If you know me, you know I pretty much don’t care about my age. Your age doesn’t dictate what you can and cannot do. What’s in your heart and your desires drives this. I love being my age–I like the life experience and the confidence that comes with a few miles, along with a little broader perspective. But you will feel how you feel. I would suggest, however, you look for things to appreciate about whatever age or place you happen to be, you’ll be much happier. Look to stuff to feel good about no matter what!

You cannot control others. You are happier when you live life not obsessing over what you cannot control. Be happy. Live your own life and focus on what matters to you. Show everyone the same respect. It’s the best advice I can give you…for this week and yes, forever beyond, too.

Are you at peace with what cannot be changed?

This forecast uses the Tarot Nova mini deck, and the Louise Hay Power Thought Cards for the affirmation. If you dig my stuff, you may like my book, Everyday Tarot Archives, and/or a consult. Be well! ~Dix

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.

20160924_122728_hdr

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?

Your Call: Tarot Forecast, Aug 22 – 28, 2016

One recurring comment I hear from my Tarot people after readings is, “I feel no judgement coming from you.”

I was thinking about that this morning and I realized, through all the years I’ve been doing this work with a goal of being as clear a channel as I’m able? I’ve never felt a sense of disapproval from Spirit. Never. I’ve felt, go this way and that way. Guidance is there for sure! But not, approval vs. disapproval.

Spirit never counts you as unworthy of having the essence of what you want, although to be frank it will go a lot smoother if you don’t try to dictate every little detail of what route it comes, arrival time and what outfit the desire is wearing. Instead, the essence of it, the underlying feeling state, lines up for you when you’re energetically ready to receive it. (Which, readiness comes in the form of not arguing against it, using your emotions to guide you in feeling better to help nudge you towards paths that lead you there.)

One of the biggest misunderstandings I see is people wanting to know, “What does Source/Spirit/the Universe wants me to do?” I’ve never had the impression there is some mysterious checklist of life to-do’s (that you must accurately guess) to make you a worthy person living a worthy life, and other things you should or should not do that would make you an unworthy person living an unworthy life. It’s more either plugged in or a clogged connection, you know? If you’re kind and loving and happy, you’re plugged in. If you’re unkind or unloving or unhappy, your connection is clogged. It’s a continuum of connection to Source.

Every Spirit I’ve ever encountered through whatever filter used to communicate to me, there is only one overriding tone without exception–love. It’s never anything short of  complete and unconditional love, no matter what life someone is living or what life someone wants to live.

Love is the ultimate truth. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

See, it’s not a matter of “what the Universe wants you to do” or what God wants you to do, however you frame Source energy. It’s not Source’s job to make up your mind for you! As individual beings, we have very clear preferences of what we want. Spirit can yield the path in magical, miraculous-seeming ways. But that happens not because this is what Spirit has parentally determined what is best for you. Spirit indeed guides us, but it’s towards the truth of whom we’ve decided to become.

That’s what I was reminded of, looking at the week ahead. It’s your job to decide what you want.

20160819_151255_HDR

Overall, the coming week looks pretty upbeat, provided you’d rather be happy than right. If you can stay in your own lane and not worry so much about what anybody else is doing, you can have a pleasant ride. In other words, don’t micromanage life! Just manage the micro, and let the Universe work out the big stuff, okay?

Monday, Knight of Pentacles: Knock through details one at a time. Don’t bother looking at the forest or even wondering how many trees are in it. Just focus on the tree right in front of you, until you’re done with that. Methodical attention that’s fully focused one one thing at a time yields the greatest return.

Tuesday, The Chariot: Keep focused. Where you’ve come from doesn’t matter. Where you’re at doesn’t matter. How you’ll get there doesn’t matter. The Chariot calls us to reorient on how we want to feel, over and over again, to lead the way. It’s a Cancer card for God’s sakes! Cancer is ruled by the moon, which speaks to our emotions. How you feel matters and here? How you feel very directly drives how successful you are.

Wednesday, Page of Swords rx: No need to knitpick. No need to sign the dotted line just yet. Give things a minute to clarify and make sure, whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it from a place that feels good at the time. That always is the most effective action.

Thursday, The Empress: Lush creativity. Today can yield many beautiful things, if you nurture their growth be kindness, love and joy. You included. Enjoy it! Revel in the physical, creative and replenishing pleasures of the day.

Friday, Six of Pentacles: Be generous. In order to be generous with others, first come from a place of being generous with yourself. Give to yourself first–this allows you to be in a place where you have an abundance of which to share.

Saturday, Two of Wands rx: Less pushing. More allowing. Less rock, more water. Less digging in. More yielding with flexibility. Look for the path of least resistance and take it!

Sunday, The Moon: A good day for dreaming and stories and if you like? A little magic, too. Don’t get hung up on hard-core, literal reality. ‘Reality” is murky, not super clear in this energy. But the feeling tone will not and cannot lie. So instead of trying to ferret out literal truth, look through metaphor glasses today–everything you note, ask yourself, “What is this like?” instead. And you’ll see truth reflected everywhere.

Overview/Advice, Nine of Pentacles: This is largely a week for clarifying and refining the lessons you’ve been learning. The faster you’ve got the energy moving around you, the…harder you can get hit with whatever you’ve had holding you in place. That’s not a bad thing, though. It’s a very useful opportunity, to clean out that gunk in short order. The trick to cleaning up here is to get plugged in FIRST so you can act from a tuned in, inspired place. This is how you make use of that education and keep moving ahead.

Affirmation: Alligator! Alligators are known often to roll under the water after they’ve snatched their prey. The alligator reminds us our strength is often enhanced by flexibility. The alligator is powerful and his appearance is a good reminder to acknowledge our own power. The alligator lives in water – the element of intuition and emotion. So we, too, live in the same energy. Pay attention to the currents in that regard to keep your vibration clear and make your path easier. It’s all right, you know? It’s all right and you’ll get there. Just roll with it.

Are you feeling the flow? Can you let yourself in there and ride it?

Shady! Weekly Tarot Forecast, July 4 – 10

I get a funny, slightly disturbed feeling being lied to. Like milk that’s going bad, you know? It’s almost, but not quite right. It generally hits my solar plexus. It’s not always very noticeable–and my desire to believe can lead me to disregard it. Many times, it has. But the feeling itself is still valid, and very reliable.

I almost never say anything, when I get that feeling.

That is what this forecast reminded me of. That shady, “off” feeling–and the decision not to say anything about it.

20160702_175811_HDR

Looking at this forecast as a whole, there’s sort of a “shady” feeling about it. Like there is plenty to misconstrue, a bit of confusion. I’m seeing one of those shell games, or 3 Card Monte. I’m not saying someone is actively trying to con you. But truthfully? It’s a possibility. Although much of the time, people con themselves. That, too, is a possibility this week. Most of these cards are minor arcana, however. So I’m thinking the confusion doesn’t have super long-term consequences. Of the week, Friday’s recommendation for self-care and the overview of taking some time to yourself are the most important parts to note.

While Mars is now direct and that feeling of trudging through mud is abating, this week still feels slower-moving than most. Progress is possible, but gradual. Two steps forward, one step in a completely random direction and…where the Hell was I going again? Like that. So take your time, okay? Rushing not advised. Roll with it, friends!

Monday, 7 of Cups Rx: This smacks of self-delusion, very possibly a “too good to be true” thing that, unsurprisingly, isn’t. Listen to the intuitive nudge of feedback–specifically, that one you’d like to ignore. Because if you don’t…well, you’re gonna be cussing yourself in the morning, Ya dig?

Tuesday, 4 of Cups: Content or complacent? That’s a matter of perspective. Either way, there’s more interest in dreaming about what could be today than actually taking action on the issue. If you have the choice, I’d schedule light today because it doesn’t seem super productive. But if you get a chance for a little daydreaming, the energetic weather should support that.

Wednesday,  Knight of Swords Rx: Somebody isn’t getting the message. Is it you? If you have important info to communicate, verify the recipient actually receives your message and understands what you’re trying to say. It may take more than one attempt to exchange information. There is also potential for muddied thinking and getting facts mixed up so double check your details. The necessary info is there, it’s not missing, but it could be in the wrong place. Like a form that has the right answers, but on the wrong lines.

Thursday, 8 of Cups: Release. Let it go! The hurt feelings and the what-if’s and the but-they-should-have-knowns. All of it. If it causes you pain or holds you back, step away. If you cannot yet do this literally, do it emotionally. Focus specifically and intentionally on what encourages you and makes you feel good and set aside the rest.

Focus on what supports you and leave behind what doesn't. Click To Tweet

Friday, The Empress Rx: Mama could use some love. If you’ve been busting tail looking after everybody else, today is a good day to look after YOU. A little play time, in particular, will replenish your giving well.

Saturday, 7 of Swords: Uh oh. Something is going down under the radar. Somebody lying? Maybe. If you have a difficult maneuver to pull off, you can today: provided you keep your mouth shut about it! There is just more going on than meets the eye. That’s not necessarily a problem, but it could be, depending. Don’t assume all the relevant facts are in the open.

Sunday, 4 of Pentacles: All is well. You are safe, and you made it through a tricky week just fine. It’s a good day to stay home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html and eat, if you have the option! Conserve your energy and resources and replenish yourself for the week coming up.

Overview/Advice, The Hermit: If you feel stressed out, frazzled or confused at any point this week, retreat! Go off by yourself for a bit and meditate. Or read. Or study whatever appeals to you. Or just sit, in nature and quiet. This will help SO MUCH, you have no idea. Don’t tell me you don’t have the time. Make the time. It will get you through any of the other difficulties with your equilibrium intact.

20160702_175753_HDRAffirmation: “My thoughts are in harmony with health.” This advice works to maximize physical health of course. But it also applies to any type of health–emotional, financial, relationship health, whatever.

 Whether you feel sick or well, focus on the wellness. Focus on improvements and appreciation for what’s going right. If you find little to appreciate, go more general as opposed to specifics, as it’s easier to do. And if you have trouble conjuring wellness thoughts on any particular topic, distract yourself with pleasant thoughts and activities unrelated. The point is to fill your mind with pleasant thoughts and your body with pleasant feelings.

Possible affirmations? I feel good. I like feeling good. I’m getting better all the time. I’m getting stronger every day. I love making progress. Most of the time, I feel good. It’s a good day. I appreciate my body. I appreciate my mind. I like me!

Ready to Soar: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 27 – July 3, 2016

Timing is everything. I can do the same things, but if my timing is off–best indicated by how I FEEL about it, in the moment–it just doesn’t work. But when I am feeling good about it? Much different story.

To get your timing right, act when the thought gives you joy. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

When I look at the forecast for this week, I’m seeing someone flopping themselves about, shaking the dust off of their clothes. Sort of like a wet dog, you know? Shiver and shake to break free of the mess, getting ready to take off. That’s how this week feels to me.

I totally blame Mars retrograde. We’ve been buried up to our necks in everything that isn’t right, is not working, feels stuck, and cannot be changed for what seems like forever now. The good news, of course, is that we had opportunity to see what’s not working, and the 29th, Mars goes direct. So that very frustrating feeling of being unable to move forward or accomplish whatever you like should start dissipating. YAY!

And next week’s forecast bears this dynamic out. The beginning of the week is murky, but it turns around to a lot more clear and optimistic towards the end. The weekend is perfect for clearing your head and clearing the air.

20160625_134452_HDR

Monday, Eight of Wands: Take heart! While situations are not yet settled, it’s breaking loose and it won’t be long before resolution will be upon us. You may not be able to see just what’s happening behind the scenes, but trust that movement will be forthcoming. If unsure of what you need to do, set the topic aside for a few days. End of the week, it will be more clear. This also has a feeling for me, of being inundated with details. If that’s true for you, just list it out and go one thing at a time.

Tuesday, The Moon: Be aware of stories that are compelling, but not factually accurate. Perhaps–no probably–the feeling content is the same, though. Great time for a little escape, too. Movies, books or music? Divine intervention, right there.

Wednesday, The Sun rx: Ah, let’s get happier today! Optimism is starting to take root. Feed it, to see it grow. Enjoy it. Revel in it–don’t talk yourself down. The lift is timely. Mars goes direct.

Thursday, The Empress: Feed yourself well today. Share it. Literally and figuratively, eat quality. Creative projects go well. Self-care and replenishment is always a good choice when the Empress shows up. Time in the garden or in nature is especially rewarding.

Friday, Ace of Cups: A little something you run across may really touch your heart today. A look, a few words, a tone of voice, something small. May take you by surprise. That’s okay. Wherever your feelings run deeper than you’d initially expect, it’s tapped another, deeper emotional vein. Look at it, with an open, compassionate heart–both the “little thing” and what it triggers.

Saturday, Page of Swords: Talk it out. Negotiate. Communicate. Come to an understanding. This is a great day for clear, plain talk. Understanding wins, and thoughts and ideas come into focus. Get quiet and clarity will settle upon you like a butterfly landing on your head.

Sunday, Queen of Swords: Prioritize. Make good on your agreements from yesterday.  Stay laser focused on goals and don’t get sidetracked with irrelevant tangents. If you take this approach, you’ll get a lot done today! Lean towards rational and fair for the best outcomes.

Overview/Advice, The World: You got this! You know that, right? Because the World says you do! Throughout the week, make your decisions based on who you want to be–the responsible, together and accomplished adult that you are. Act in a way you’d feel fine about other people knowing, even if nobody is looking. Responsibility and applying your full skillset in an honest, straightforward way to the challenges of the week pays off.

Affirmation, Nine of Cups: I love this card as an affirmation prompt. So many possibilities! All is perfect in my world. I’m where I’m supposed to be, doing what I’m supposed to be doing. I am at the right place at the right time. I am content. I am satisfied. I am enough. I appreciate what I have. I am grateful. I am joyful. I love my life. Everything is always working out for me. Life is fabulous!

Centered: Weekly Flow Tarot, May 30 – June 5

Crocheted BlanketsI have been a little crazy, with my crocheting. Like, I’ve gotten started with it and suddenly, I’m whipping it out it like a mad woman.

Yes, it’s significantly opened up my creative force. Y’all have NO IDEA how many ideas come to me when I’ve got a hook and yarn in my hand. I often keep a notebook beside me. It’s insane.

But it does a lot more.

It calms me. It’s meditative. It helps me get out of my fears or frustrations or mind chatter, wherever I happen to be, to very simply get centered.

Centered. That’s how I feel after manipulating yarn into fancy knots for a few hours.

It’s nothing short of magic. And this week? You need to grab on to what centers you and make it happen, baby!IMG_5158

There are ups and downs in the week’s forecast, as per normal. But the feeling of environmental instability is notable. So what do you do with that? You create your own stability. I’m seeing this spread as a whole as a very clear call to be responsible for staying centered. That means not getting sucked in to drama. It means speaking from the authority of what YOU feel good about, what your inner guidance system says, regardless of what outside energy is like. You carry your own calm this week. Which works wonderfully, provided you commit to the process.

Monday, Just Breathe – The Empress, rx: Self-care, not other-care, is where efforts are best focused today. I know you sometimes hurt for others. But you cannot do much for others if you’re underperforming yourself. This is PRIORITY ONE, folks.

Tuesday, Simply Love – The Wheel of Fortune: Opening the heart is magnetic–it opens up opportunities and draws others not only to you, but your work as well. Luck today comes from huge gratitude and a loving attitude. That’s where your fortune lies. Turn up the love.

Wednesday, Challenging Times/Solar Plexus Chakra – The Fool, rx: Challenging times are opportunities to identify and reclaim your own power. In this way, what we may have called “mistakes” can be rightly considered gifts. Move slowly today, and stay rooted in your own authority to fare best.

Thursday, Share the Love – The Chariot: Don’t know which way to go? Easy. What does your heart tell you? What option is most loving? Do that.

Friday, Refusing to See – Four of Cups: Some people will be distracted by their own misconceptions today. Don’t need to be one of them! Acknowledge what’s in front of you before extrapolating on it.

Saturday, Healing Begins – Knight of Wands: Listen to your heart’s desire and take steps from that place. MOVE towards what you want!

Sunday, Coming Together – Eight of Wands: So situations are not a done deal, quite yet. But? Things are moving quickly, perhaps behind the scenes. Have faith and hang in.

Overview/Advice, Find Balance – The Emperor: Do not let the pushes to and fro–from outside, or from fears or desire–lead you off center. This week, keep grounding, keep pulling back to your center, your core. Grounding exercises, in fact, are an awesome way to recharge. Do one of those millions of “being the tree, rooting in the ground” visualizations. Get outside. Participate in physical activity. Basically, whatever brings you back into your body is worthwhile. If anything upsets or bothers you this week, look to call upon your own authority to pull back to center. Don’t react; retract until you feel steady. You have the right. You have the authority to refuse to budge until you feel solid. So do it!

Affirmation from Archangel Metatron: “Call upon me to clear and open your chakras, using sacred geometric shapes.”

IMG_5159Even if you’re not into sacred geometry (and aren’t interested in pursuing it at present), you can certainly look to clear your chakras. Looking at your physical needs and honoring them. Finding space for joy and pleasure, and honoring that. Feeling and enforcing your personal power, and honoring that. Feeling the love in your heart for yourself, for those in your circle and for humanity…and honoring that. Communicating your truth, seeing with your inner eye of intuition and connecting to source–honoring each bit of your life.

Perhaps it can be a week-long quest, with each day of the week focusing on a chakra. Red for Monday, Orange for Tuesday, etc. Working with gemstones or even clothing in the colors of the rainbow will help with chakras.

Meditation–especially using mandalas–or some geometrically-based art projects or mandala coloring is another perfect activity to connect to Metatron’s healing force.

In terms of thinking of this as a weekly affirmation, I’m taking as advice to take ALL our needs into account and addressing the world’s challenges from a clear, solid place. The theme of the forecast this week is all about pulling back to center and this affirmation echos that.

Center. Ground. Stay true to who you are.

I am solid, balanced and centered. #affirmation Click To Tweet

How do you center?
