Freedom Via Perspective: Weekly Tarot, October 17 – 23, 2016

I had a meltdown last week. And I’m thinking what I learned from it, will come in handy this upcoming week.

It was over my butterfly bush.

I planted this bush years ago and it grew and grew and grew, crazy big. I let the morning glory vines run amok over it. The butterflies and hummingbirds and bees ate from the blooms. I kept birdseed in the bush, and scattered seed down in front. This bush became a haven for the local wildlife. It gave me some privacy (along with the tree that sprouted up next to it) oh, the smell of those delicate lavender blooms in the breeze!

butterflybush

Wild and untamed. Just like me.

I adored that butterfly bush and pretty much every day sat outside and admired it. I was even planning on, come time to move, taking a whole bunch of branches so I could plant baby butterfly bushes wherever I ended up. My lovely bush’s children! See, I had this figured out.

I’m not kidding, by the way. I’d discussed this with the bush.

So when my landlady stopped by to tell me she needed to “trim it away from the house.” I winced, knowing she’d take way too much. But you know, what are you gonna do?

"Trimmed."

“Trimmed.”

When I later went outside to survey the damage, I expected to be unhappy. I didn’t expect the empty space that greeted me. She killed the bush and the tree next to it and pretty much everything else, excepting a cluster of random flowers that had migrated a couple years ago and a pathetic little shrub I’d never cared for much.

I freaked the Hell out. I cried for two days after and–though I’m not proud of it–became hysterical when the landlady came over to “smooth things over” after the fact, suggesting I should buy a bench to put on the pile of mostly empty rocks.

It was not pretty.

Of course, I eventually did what one does when they’re upset about anything. I looked for ways to feel better.

I bought a shepherd’s hook, and some colorful and butterfly-friendly flowers (in pots!) to help fill that space. And while it’s certainly not the same and it will take a while to rebuild my wildlife oasis, it IS much more cheery than the rocks and it did make me feel a lot better. I can now look over there without feeling upset.

And once I started feeling better, I realized it’s not the bush itself that gave me so much joy. That’s what I first thought, in grieving the bush. But it’s not true.

When the landlady looked at the bush, she saw an unkempt mess growing too close to the building and making the property look run down. I get that. Whereas I saw this beautiful, wild hunk of nature that fed birds and butterflies and ME.

But it was the exact same bush we were looking at. It wasn’t that one of us was right and the other wrong. It wasn’t the bush itself that gave me so much joy (or her so much frustration). It was how we thought about that bush, shaping feelings around it.

It was specifically my love and appreciation for that bush that gave me such great joy. The love and appreciation came from ME. It grew in my heart, not in front of my house.

The bush was my excuse to feel good, sure. And it was easy to use it that way. But I can love and appreciate anything! My capacity for love cannot be cut down with a chainsaw. I can love and appreciate new flowers, new bird feeders, and the opportunity to learn more about how to attract wildlife I enjoy so much. Happiness doesn’t come from butterfly bushes, even ones so majestic as mine was.

[bctt tweet=”Appreciation isn’t born from circumstance. It’s from how you think about circumstance.” via=”no”]

All feelings are like that. It’s not outside conditions that determine happiness. It’s how you feel about those conditions. And how you feel about those conditions is driven by how you think about those conditions. You have control over what you’re thinking.

Do you realize how much pure, unadulterated freedom there is in knowing that? Use that insight. Don’t let my butterfly bush die in vain!

Audio Version of Forecast

We’ve got lots of Cups and Swords this week. Expect for emotion to run high in the beginning of the week particularly, and strong potential for conflict afoot. So let’s see how we can get you through this as intact and as happy as possible!

Monday, Five of Wands: A contentious start. There are plenty of things people are fighting about. It’s out there. But is is something you want to engage in? Sure, you can. But does it help and does it make you happy? Just know you can either engage or not. Personally? I’m gonna go hide from it all and dig on my flowers. But what you do is up to you.

Tuesday, The Moon: Lies out there. Lies, lies, lies. You may be hearing the lies or be tempted to tell the lies. But reality is blurry today. I’d suggest to keep yourself on the straight and narrow, honesty-wise. You can use this flavor of energy constructively for creative projects, old fashioned escapism like good novels, movies, or art. Anything Neptune-ish. A nice bath will wash away a lot! Good nap day, too. Get plenty of sleep.

Wednesday, Ace of Cups: A touch emotional and a little raw. Not overwhelming, but a little raw. So tread lightly and be kind, starting with yourself and working your way out.

Thursday, Five of Cups Rx: This energy is a little lighter reversed but still not super fun. There is a feeling of being let down or disappointment.  To deal with it, stick to what you know is right and feels okay to you and don’t worry about anybody else. Not like you control that anyway. But give yourself permission to focus on you. Manage your own feelings.

Friday, King of Cups: Emotional maturity is the order of the day. Be kind, generous and compassionate. Which always starts in the mirror with yourself, period. Not a battle day. More a supportive circle of people kind of day. Either do it for others or hang with those who do it for you.

Saturday, Five of Swords: Contentious energy. While the Five of Wands (Monday) is the fight, this is the victor emerging from argument. On a personal level, it’s really going to be about how emotionally attached you are a particular outcome. If you feel emotionally defeated, realize it’s a FEELING based on your thoughts, not a REALITY based on the hard and fast. You have control over thoughts.

Sunday, Hermit Rx: Mix alone and social time. Don’t completely withdraw to your cave. Spend some time for you, some time interacting, which will make the best day.

Overview/Advice, Queen of Wands Rx: Avoid stubbornness and controlling tendencies. This Queen Rx can be a control freak. Other people’s issues? BUTT OUT! Life will go a whole lot better that way.

Affirmation: I love life. There is a lot of struggle and strife right out our windows right now. You decide whether you sit and stare out the window, whether you go outside and engage in the fighting, or whether you pull down the shades and turn on a movie. Focus on what makes you happy, your intentions, desires, needs and wants. Let the world deal with their own needs and issues. It’s not your job to fix the world! But you can help–by improving your experience. The collective is nothing more than individuals doing their part. You want a happy world? You do your part by turning on your happiness. Each person, doing their own thing in their own lives, inspiring by their example, is how collective change is born. So be that person.

How are you doing staying in your own lane?

Path is Personal: Weekly Tarot, Aug 1 – 7

How much does what other people think of you matter to you?

I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than on the opinions of others. –Marcus Aurelius

This issue has been on my radar. It’s wonderful to feel appreciated and understood. It’s validating. It just feels damn good! But when you’re not feeling that, how much adjustment are you willing to undergo? Do you really think you can do enough head-standing and back-flipping to please someone else?

Not to mention, that’s a job I don’t want! Let’s say I was able to contort myself enough to keep another happy for the sake of argument. Well, yippee for me. All that means is I’ve signed on to a job of being someone I’m not to obtain approval that feels disingenuous from the start because it is! It’s not who I am, it’s pretend. The very premise is disempowering to both parties.

It says to the other, “You are not able to produce your own happiness without my performance.”

It says to me, “It’s not okay to be fully myself. I must hide and contort and sacrifice my identity. Any acceptance I find this way is hollow because it’s based on a projection.”

There are no winners in this scenario.

I would argue that it’s not ever my business what someone else thinks about me, and furthermore, it’s never about me. Never. Any individual’s point of perception is about themselves, where they are, how they look at the world. They can like what they see looking at me or not like what they see, but the liking or not liking is always about the person who is liking or not liking.

We stagger through life sometimes, not only looking to create a long list of what’s definitively “right and wrong,” but much worse, we undertake the impossible task of trying to force others to subscribe to our lists of good and evil. That is a pointless endeavor if ever there was one.

This week? Don’t try to assert your list onto others. Your list of what works for you or what doesn’t is for YOU and you alone. Withdraw your attention from anyone who is trying to assert their list unto you. Just be true to yourself, as purely as you can. Strictly speaking? This is advice for always. But I’m thinking it may come into play this week.

20160716_134658_HDR

With several reversals, I’m expecting slow progress and potential for frustrations and delays. With Uranus–the planet of big surprises and freedom going retrograde–this isn’t a big surprise. The week goes smoother if you know things will just take time and remain ready to roll with the flow.

Monday, The Star rx: Make a conscious decision to reach for optimism–folks are having trouble holding on to it and it really is healing and helpful.

Tuesday, Four of Pentacles: Stable, solid day. Anxiety is possible, but pointless. Expect stability and “no change” today. Relax into it as much as you can.

Wednesday, Seven of Swords: An excellent time to keep your own counsel. Operate under the radar and draw no attention to what you’ve got going on.

Thursday, The World rx: I don’t know about you, but I’ve been taking regular “news breaks.” Not breaks to watch news. Breaks as in avoiding news, limiting news. There’s a lot of jarring energy out there and it serves us well to limit how much we consume at a given time.

Friday, Page of Pentacles rx: Book light today, as energy may be a bit depleted after the week. Y’all know I’m a big fan of naps! Self-care, quiet time, and a lighter-than-normal schedule are all very soothing and helpful.

Saturday, Five of Wands rx: Step back from the conflict and don’t make it your own. Look for points of agreement instead of differences. There are plenty of both, but far too few people focusing on the agreements and far too many focusing on contention.

Sunday, King of Swords rx: Incomplete information; don’t be quick to cut out options. Take it slow and wait for facts to emerge. A great day to look for what you want and like, softly, and ignore what you don’t, completely.

Overview/Advice: Three of Swords rx: We feel what we feel, and there is nothing wrong with whatever we feel. But we also decide, courtesy of our focus, where our emotional setpoint lies. If you’ve got heartache or tears, fair enough. I would never suggest you deny any emotions. They provide valuable guidance. I would, however, suggest not wallowing, not milking the pain–Scorpio moons, I’m looking at you! Feel whatever you feel, and release. Feel and release. Then turn your focus on what lifts you up. Because you know what? We can all benefit from uplifting. Tip: If you get less specific about thoughts that bother you (and more specific on thoughts you enjoy), you’ll feel better pretty quickly.

Affirmation: Worrying about illness can create more illness. To make this more widely applicable–there is not a damn problem in the history of humanity that’s been solved by worrying hard enough. As a super Virgo, I can state this as a fact. So why do that to ourselves?

What worrying does is amplify the subjective experience of what’s unwanted by activating it in our vibrations, consciousness, our emotional bodies. Of course I see plenty wrong in the world–and I see plenty right. When I see hate, I can hate the hate (thus adding to the sum total of hate) and draw attention to it (thus giving it more airplay and momentum). Or I can decide I’d rather see love and embody that love, thus adding to the sum total of love. If enough do this, you get a collective tipping point where love overpowers the hate. Every subject has both poles–what you want surrounding it and what you don’t. Rather than adding energetic support to what I don’t want, I’m going to embody what I do want. Feels a lot better and does some good at the same time. I don’t freak out about worry. I just look to notice it and release it: not by “not thinking about it,” but by crowding out those worry thoughts with the more empowering thoughts of what I do want instead.

Failure, Kindness and Joy: Tarot Flow Forecast, May 2 – 8, 2016

What does it mean, to be a good person? A good mom? A good daughter, spouse or friend? Those are questions in my head–and how I stack up, or not, are also in my head. In particular, how other people perceive me versus how I perceive myself is being highlighted now.

I’m not sure it’s the same for everybody, but I am seeing the trending theme of people examining where they feel they’ve failed, in pretty close up detail.

It’s not a fun hobby, deconstructing failure. But it can be productive.

[bctt tweet=”Without a clear definition of failure, how can you know you’ve succeeded? #OnMyRadar” username=”goddess_dix”]

It really is raw out there right now and people are withdrawing to sort, revisit the past and, hopefully, to heal. So please, be as kind as you possibly can to ALL–and this includes yourself.

Tarot Forecast May 2 - 8 2016

We’re in an astrological retrograde soup and will be for a while–which fuels all this turning inward, looking to the past, and revisiting old issues. Mercury in among those retrograding (until 5/22) so the usual warnings like double-checking plans and expecting communication snafus apply. Like this vibe or not, doesn’t have much import here. When I feel frustrated with the slowdowns and reviews, I try to remember they really are necessary and helpful, whether or not they always feel good subjectively. The review flavor definitely is heavily imprinted in this week’s forecast.

Monday, Heartache & Loss – Five of Wands: Conflict has a price. Sometimes it’s necessary, for sure. But it does involve loss, so factor in all the costs when deciding to take up arms. Potential to be on any side of this equation. But maybe you’ll just be bystander and know to take a step back; that’s a distinct possibility, too. Sorry–this isn’t the sweetest start to the week! But I draw what I draw, you know?

Tuesday, Emotional Withdrawal – King of Swords Rx: If you KNOW you’re not thinking clearly, back off from the hustle to care for yourself! If someone else is snapping at you, assume they are not thinking clearly and go into turtle mode (at least with your connection here) until the emotional weather is clearer. You can mingle and interact without issue. Just don’t internalize words that do not feel okay or otherwise work for you and you’ll do just fine.

Wednesday,  Triumphant Success – Page of Pentacles Rx: Thank God, we’re getting a break! You can lose the obsessiveness vibe if you choose to focus on the gratitude factor. And for the love of all that’s holy, try to accept compliments with some grace, will ya? Don’t argue. Don’t dismiss. The appropriate response is, “Thank you.”

Thursday, Disruption – Two of Wands Rx: Plans go awry. It’s not disaster, but it is disruptive and it calls for flexibility. Laugh it off as much as possible and take the alternate route.

Friday, Foundation & Achievement – Ace of Pentacles: Past work is paying off. Woot! Possibility for a modest financial gain, recognition or otherwise optimistic and promising news. I’ll take it!

Saturday, Financial & Material Changes – Ten of Swords Rx: Recovery and healing is indicated here. Coming off of yesterday’s news, there’s potential for a “drop in the bucket” feeling around prosperity and resources. Don’t sink into the consciousness of lack here. Acknowledge the IMPROVEMENTS because you know what? They are there and they count. Avoid self-chastising about how you “should be further along by now.” You are where you are and in case you haven’t noticed, the trend is on recovery and building. TAKE IT and run! Nothing else is truly helpful. Be glad for trending up and be grateful for what you do have.

Sunday, Solitude – High Priestess Rx: You need more than quiet time–you need to quiet your brain. Mindfulness and peace refresh and recharge you. Art work, time in nature, cooking, gardening, hiking, or shopping are a few ideas for tapping into this quiet time. Naps totally work here. There’s a need to get away from the bustle and noise not only of the world, but especially in your brain! What helps you turn off your brain chatter? Do that.

Overview/Advice, Power King of Pentacles: Generosity is what gets you through this week. Be generous with yourself: plenty of rest, great quality food, contact with people who love you, self-care and down time all help tremendously. Be kind! The King of Pentacles is very kind and he can be your model this week.

IMG_5117Affirmation: Tangerine – Be Spontaneous & Have Fun. Laughter is healing. Looking at the energy of this week we’ve got a two options. We can look at what we DO NOT have–and fill our souls with worry and angst. Or we can look at what we DO have, and reach for joy and hope as a result of that focus. It evens out the rough patches. It fuels your creativity and therefore, your problem solving abilities. And oh yeah…it feels really good!

Prescription, JOY! You got that? Call upon the Sacral Chakra, and activate joy. It helps so much!

And be well out there. ♥

How you doing?

One Step After Another: Weekly Tarot Flow, Oct 5 – 11

Thor my warrior kitten really did a number on me last time I was doing forecast layouts. I kept moving him back, back, back and he was ready to attack as you can see from the picture. It was really difficult to photograph the cards and do my thing with little, needle-like claws and teeth sunk into my forearm.

I let him in because I love the pictures with him exploring the cards–and okay, I’m a sucker for a crying kitten. But because I didn’t eject him from the room, I got pretty scratched up. And I have to take responsibility for that.

Sort of like this week’s forecast: I was acting as if I didn’t have any choice in my pain. But in reality, I just couldn’t have everything I wanted: a happy kitten, cute pictures and an easy, painless process completing my forecast. Thor was being true to his predator nature and acting on his need to play. He wasn’t trying to hurt me, although I did leave the room bloodied.

But the fault is mine: I was expecting him to conform to my desires and needs, without a realistic consideration for his.

You see where this is going?

IMG_4495

This week starts out on a challenging note, but eases up after Wednesday as Mercury prepares to go direct on Friday. (YAY!) What I like especially is that the advice and affirmation cards drawn give us very clear and easy-to-implement guidance for dealing with any stressors that come our way.

Monday, Six of Swords reversed/Healing Begins: Reversed, this is hesitation to make necessary transitions. When change comes calling in our lives, we generally have a limited choice: easy or hard. And by “easy” I don’t mean not low effort or little friction and adjustment. In this context, easy means voluntarily! Because “hard” is kicking and screaming all the way. Just let me put it this way: denial is not a functional defense here. Recognize what’s not right for you so that you can begin transitioning to what is, hard trek or no. Moon in Cancer.

[bctt tweet=”Every journey is not just begun one step at a time. It’s completed the same way.”]

Tuesday, Seven of Swords reversed/Seek Truth: Don’t hide from what you see. You don’t have to fully interpret it yet, let alone act on it. But note it, okay? Not just the parts you like. Don’t let your ego trip you up! Observation is recommended, with a detached, nonjudgemental air if at all possible. But you practice that already, right? Moon and Venus enter Leo.

Wednesday, Base Chakra + Five of Wands/Challenging Times: I’m not liking the looks of today! Sorry. Be aware of potential conflicts and threats to your basic security. Is someone posing a danger to yourself or your loved ones? Don’t ignore the warning signs, and the weird feeling that crops up in the pit of your stomach. Be ready to stand up for what matters. I’m not trying to be alarmist or anything. But stay frosty out there, okay? Hope I’m WAY off base for you! Moon in Leo.

Thursday, Eight of Swords reversed/Helpless and Hopeless: Reversed, this card points to an open window that allows exit from a stagnant situation. It makes me think of Skinner’s box and the concept of learned helplessness. Don’t assume you cannot affect change. Just take a step to free yourself, questioning all the rules you’ve put in place to maintain the status quo. Moon enters Virgo.

Friday, Nine of Wands/Rest & Reconsider: Deep breath. Allow the last few days to integrate into your consciousness and regroup your energy. Good day to take it easy. You know I’m going to suggest my favorite universal solutions, right? Time with loved ones, quiet time in nature and as always, naps are heartily endorsed! Give yourself a break to end the work week. You deserve it. Hello, Mercury direct! Moon in Virgo.

Saturday, Ace of Cups/Love Abounds: Immerse yourself in loving energy of any flavor–creative, familial, romantic, or gratitude based. Joy is the flavor of the day, so partake heartily. ♥ Moon in Virgo.

Sunday, Seven of Pentacles/Awaiting Results: Take stock of all the progress you’ve made and count it for goodness sakes! We focus so much on our shortcomings or not-quite-there bits. Acknowledge the long term work you’ve done and how far you’ve progressed. Efforts ARE starting to pay out, if you’re wondering. Yes, that’s what you are seeing. Woot! Moon enters Libra.

Overview/Advice, Six of Pentacles/Giving & Receiving: Be generous in every sense of the word, including the oft-overlooked form of generosity–allowing others to help you, too. You cannot only give without taking, any more than it’s right to only take without giving. Most of us are emotionally comfortable with only one side of that equation, which varies according to the individual. True balance demands we partake of both.

Affirmation: My emotions are vibrational interpreters. How frequently do you talk yourself out of listening to your gut? How often do we call ourselves “silly, stupid, overreacting, irrational” or something similar? When I say “do a gut check,” I mean listen to those feelings you get–especially the ones that “make no sense.” That is exactly how Spirit communicates to you!

A long time ago, early on in my spiritual seeking, I asked a reader, “How do I know when I’m on the right track, spiritually?” There was so much to consider, so many options that it just felt overwhelming trying to suss out what choices were right, which direction to go.

He smiled broadly. “Joy. Let joy be your guide.” As if it were so very, very simple.

[bctt tweet=”Let joy be your guide. It leads to truth. #quotes”]

But you know what? It is. It is just that simple.

Transformations and growth can be hard for sure, and even I’m not Pollyanna enough to suggest everything we’re faced with in life is joyful. I got that. But when you’re looking to navigate, check in with your heart. Look to follow even the faintest scent of joy if that’s all you’ve got and it will help you find your bearings.

So if you need a touchstone any time throughout this week, remember to graciously accept and receive generosity, and always seek joy. That will get you through any rough patches!

Are you as ready as I am for Mercury to go direct so we can just GET ON with this?

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?

What Can You Feel Good About? Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Jan 26–Feb 2

Weekly Tarot Forecast

“Do what you can feel good about.” I’ve given this advice many times, both to others and to myself in the mirror when faced with a hurtful situation. Family issues, rejections, and betrayals can sometimes leave us simultaneously wanting to make up and strike back. So in trying to decide what’s appropriate, a yardstick that doesn’t try to measure anyone else’s behavior is incredibly helpful.

This week? It’s like that. Do what you can feel good about and what you’ve committed to do.

Most of this coming week looks pretty good! While I’m not crazy about the weekend which the cards suggest may lean toward the raw side, I believe we can use the energy of the rest of the week to carry us through. It looks to be a fast-pasted week with emotional notes, starting off with the Knight of Cups, and including the Chariot and a very busy Five of Wands. The orange topic cards are people, so both yourself, others and your relationship(s) play a major role as well. In other words, this week doesn’t appear in a vacuum, folks. I expect both conflict and comforts to come from your inner circle. So be aware.

Also remember, we’re still in Mercury retrograde. So there may be a little déjà vu of old news showing up to spice up your week. Be graceful and gracious, and always double check your facts before taking action here, and you should be fine.

Monday, Future Life – Prince of Cups: This card promises an upcoming emotional connection, or a deepening of an existing emotional connection. Knights’ energy is not static; it moves! In short, your feelings take you new places. Sometimes it’s pleasant and sometimes it’s not, but it’s definitely moving. So what do you think of that?

Tuesday, Mind – Two of Wands: A decision to be made. If you wonder, “Am I up to this? Can I hold my own here?” The Two of Wands answer is “Yes,” although you may not be as certain as I am.

Wednesday, You – Ten of Pentacles: You’re surrounded by a loving family (be they biological or chosen) and the richness of being a part of that community. Revel in being a part of such a group.

Thursday, Others – The Chariot: Ah, people around you are going places! Be a follower or be a leader, but whatever you do, don’t stand still. You’ll get left behind.

Friday, Relationship – The Moon: This could go either way. There could be mystery and magic afoot, or it could turn out-and-out crazy on a dime. I would advise scrupulous honesty in all relationships. The Moon can show up for lies, and that’s not really the energy you want to invoke here. Don’t push for hard facts. Just allow interactions to take shape and don’t discount the power of emotions in creating reality.

Saturday, Hopes and Fears – Five of Wands: Either there is worry a conflict will never end, or an itching to kick some ass. Keep the temper in check.

Sunday, What You Can’t Change – Ten of Swords: Whoever has hurt you, it’s done. Whoever has not been true, it’s done. Facing up to the full impact is not fun by any stretch, but it’s the hardest part of betrayals. Once that’s over, the healing can really get underway.

Overview/Advice – Four of Wands: Regardless of what others do, honor your commitments and do what YOU feel good about. Your goodwill may waver based on others’ behavior, but your integrity should not. Stand by your word.

Affirmation: The Universe is Big Enough to fulfill my every intent. I am thinking of this in terms of expectation versus reality. I may EXPECT to get my desires in a straightforward, linear fashion because I’ve been “good” and tried my best to do my work. I may get disgruntled if I start at point A and life throws me a tsunami and I realize I’m so far away from my pre-identified point B that I can not longer find it in my radar.

But our vision is so very limited and sometimes, what we end up with is much different that what we envisioned. Doesn’t mean we’re not moving ahead or growing. It only means it’s not in the way we might have plotted it. We need both a deliberate intent for who we want to be, and the flexibility to ride the flow and discover new alternatives. At times, that ugly package is the Universe’s biggest gift and we just didn’t know. Wherever you are, make the best of it and know that if you surrender to the flow, you’ll get much further than if you fight it. Don’t ask “how” you’ll get there so much as focusing on the what you want your life to be about. That vision, attention to where you are going, is what gets you there. Fixation on the rocks brings pain. Fixation on the destination keeps you tracking ever towards it.

Hope you have a wonderful week and manage to sidestep the rocks. And if in doubt, remember, do what you feel good about! Everything else (eventually) falls into place. Much love.

How’s your week looking?
