Recovery: Weekly Tarot Forecast, May 4 – 10

Weekly Tarot May 4I didn’t have a lot of time to get this week’s forecast done, so I opted for simple – just the cards and an affirmation.

And man…this looks like a fairly…busy week. Busy, yeah. I’m calling this “recovery week.” Scorpio full moon, man!

We start out on a low note and work our way up through the week until we’re in good steed by the weekend. So keep that in mind if your Monday sucks!

Monday, Ten of Swords: Wow. An overwhelming day. Realizations creep up because there is no more defense barrier to keep them out. This is hard energy, I won’t “bright side” it too much here, because I’m not a liar. On the other hand, there is nothing hidden anymore. You know what you’ve got to work with and can go from there. Feel your pain, cry your tears and let it flow out so you can be ready for the business of pulling all those swords out of your back.

Tuesday, Emperor Reversed: Beginning the process of feeling in control again. Parts of the day you’ll feel like you’ve got everything in hand, whereas other parts of the day, it’s liable to feel like a big, fat acting job. Do your best with it and remember, the most powerful sort of control the Emperor wields is always over HIMSELF. ‘Nuff said.

Wednesday, Four of Cups Reversed: No, maybe not everything has turned out quite how you dreamed it would. That doesn’t mean the dreaming was wrong. This life thing is a growing process, okay? Do keep your meanderings more along the lines of “where am I going from here,” and don’t hang out in “what if?” town. Keep it constructive.

Thursday, Seven of Wands: Decisions and actions today may not please the crowd, but you need to follow your gut and do what you feel in your heart to be right. This is not necessarily what is easy or expedient, but what feels true.

Friday, Ace of Pentacles: A seed of hope! An encouraging sign, a bit of uplifting news, or even a small check could show up today. A smidge of relief from the ongoing challenges, and expect it to arrive in tangible, physical form as are the way of pentacles. If you’re not finding some encouragement showing up for you, then do what you can to create your own! Be especially aware of your physical needs today.

Saturday, Queen of Swords: Ah, time to get clear, get serious and get rational. Cut off all the dead weight today and be fair but be direct. It’s a day of pruning, whatever that means to you.

Sunday, Strength: Love to see this card to end up the week! It says only one thing: you got this.

Overview/Advice: The Star: Don’t lose hope! The future isn’t promised, or maybe I should say, ONE future isn’t promised, but THE future will come. And it does have some promise.

Affirmation: I am flexible and flowing. It’s a week of adaptations, healing and integrating. You can (and will) make the adjustments. I couldn’t have come up with a better affirmation.

You can do this. You ARE doing this. Just keep doing it and keep the faith. Scorpio Full Moon energy (especially this last one) may not be easy but it’s very, very necessary. You’ve got to do the gutting before you can do the remodel. This week is cleaning up some of the mess from the gutting.

How are y’all doing out there?

Universal Transportation Upgrade: Weekly Flow Tarot, Jan 12–18

forecast 001

We used to have an old beater car—okay, we’ve had a LOT of old beater cars, but there was one in particular that I absolutely hated. It had been in a wreck before we got it, and it drove funny. The steering wheel had a little shimmy in it—a little disorienting at first, and still bothersome even when you got used to it. The alignment wasn’t quite right. It drove…but it was old and beat up and just…well, bleh. I hadn’t picked it out and I didn’t like it and I wanted my old car instead but that was my option, what I had to drive at the time.

Well, I cursed that car every single time I drove it. Complained and sighed, rather dramatically I’m afraid. Felt sorry for myself, driving such a clunker. I fussed at the steering shimmy and griped about it every time the subject came up. In general, I made a much bigger deal about that car than it need to be, to the point I was positively cranky every time I got in the thing.

Eventually, I realized how childish my grudge against this car was. I decided, “Okay, if this is what I’ve got to drive, I need to appreciate it.” I decided my attitude was the biggest problem. So I added some personal touches, hanging up a necklace on the rear view mirror. I put new mats in it, and seat covers and a new trash bag. I spiffed it up. I actually thanked the car for getting me around safely. (Yes, I did this aloud, although not when other people were there.) And I found, when I was driving it, I wasn’t so mad any more. Lo and behold, I had even started liking that car.

A month later, I was rear-ended at a stop light and the car was totaled. Hahaha! There’s some divine car karma, right there.

We got a check from the insurance company for about four times what that car was worth. When I stopped obsessing about what I didn’t like about that car, the Universe handed me a transportation upgrade.

This week? You may be able to get yourself an upgrade from the Universe, if you can stop being pissed off about what you’ve got.

Monday, Advice – Knight of Swords: Focus! Think and act, think and act. Use clear language. This is fast-moving energy, but you can keep up. Just make sure you don’t multi-task yourself into confusion. One thing at a time.

Tuesday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Four of Swords reversed: There’s difficulty here “letting it rest” in your head. Like me cussing my old car, are you going on and on? Listen to what you’re repeating to yourself, what is disturbing your peace. It’s almost certainly coming from your own brain…

Wednesday, Action – Three of Wands: How Zen is the action of inaction? The main theme today is letting what you’ve done prior play out. Keep anything you do consistent with what you expect to get. No matter what you’re driving, appreciate it and look forward to when the Universe shows up with a new ride.

Thursday, Spirit, Five of Cups: Awwww. This is sad! What do you feel you’re lacking? What are you missing? In my story, I missed my old car, that I had picked out and didn’t shimmy in the steering. But I had to feel my sadness and let it go before I could live in the present.

Friday, What to Know – Four of Cups reversed: Not everything turns out just how you expected it would! That’s not necessarily bad, you know. Just understand, daydreams are that. Sometimes people don’t follow your script. Hell, sometimes YOU don’t follow your script. Let your daydreams inform your attitude, but know that manifestation may come in entirely different clothing.

Saturday, Significator – Ten of Pentacles reversed: Lack of contentment and satisfaction is an INSIDE job. Appreciate what you’ve got if you hope to get a Universal transportation upgrade.

Sunday, Lesson – Six of Swords: You ARE actually making that difficult transition. Reflect on the week as a whole to see your progress and honor that.

Overview/Advice – King of Cups Reversed: Understand and honor your feelings, but you don’t need to revel in them, and you (sometimes) can benefit from a little more perspective. If crying makes you feel better, cry. But then let it go.

Affirmation – I am safe in the Universe and all life loves and supports me. It’s hard to take this affirmation literally, but the general idea—the Universe supports me—that I can work with. You know? We may not get what we want but we generally get what we need, even if we don’t know we need it at the time.

Looking over these cards again, I realize there is a lot of travel in this spread. Lots of movement and motion. A lot of it is in your head. So use your power of reframing to make it as pleasant a trip as possible.

How’s your week looking?

Life’s White Spaces: Weekly Flow Tarot, Dec. 22 – 28

Tarot Dec 22 -28

Happy Solstice/New Moon! There is unquestionably some magic on tap, but it’s a Capricorn new moon. So you have to turn on the faucet yourself.

This looks to be a very transitional week. I’m reminded of cleaning out a closet to make way for new clothing, or clearing out a room so someone can move in. Looking at next week as a whole, it strikes me as a mix of emotion and action. But the twist is that most of the “action” potential is rooted in inaction. Big happenings are settling into life’s white spaces—what’s not is as important (or more so) than what is. It’s what you are not doing, not saying, not forcing, that opens up the room to allow. Even saying that is making me feel all existentialist or something. But let’s hit the highlights, day by day.

Monday, Question – The Hanged Man: The question here is one of inaction. Maybe not what you should do, so much as what you should leave alone. For any situations where you are feeling unsure, faith and allowing situations to play out is the recommended strategy.

Tuesday, What to Take from the Past – Page of Cups: Strong, loving heart energy is what you want to access today. Jaded and loving don’t mix. Look a for a pure, uncomplicated, and heart-centered approach. No finesse or relationship management required or desired. I won’t say it’s necessarily easy. It requires a sometimes staunch faith to execute. Some might call this naïve or simplistic. I call it potent, very potent energy.

Wednesday, Hobbies and Talents – Four of Cups: Pastimes and activities you enjoy are a form of meditation. They definitely allow a different perspective. These kinds of activities today may alert you to what you’re missing as much as what you have. You don’t have to seek these answers, by the way. The act of losing yourself in personal expression creates space in your head and your heart, not filled up with daily bustle. It provides a contrast so the points can be more readily perceived.

Thursday, What to Avoid – Four of Wands reversed: Merry Christmas! Advice? Be extra respective of other’s partners and family, even if you don’t feel all that enthused. Not the day to suggest a divorce to anybody! Now maybe this is common sense on a day people often spend with family or maybe not, but the reversed Four of Wands suggests not to disrupt any apple carts. What you don’t say counts! It’s also an important day to honor commitments.

Friday, Co-Workers – High Priestess: The High Priestess is another one of those between-the-lines energies. In the position of co-workers, it would suggest an unspoken understanding related to people you are partnering with. This could be work of course, project related. But it doesn’t have to be. It can speak to any flavor of joint project. Partners may know more than you think they do. Listen for what’s not said. If you are in doubt regarding your own behavior with co-workers, wait, hold back or remain silent. This is another example of the white spaces.

Saturday, Pros – Strength reversed: It’s interesting to find Strength reversed in the “Pros” position. I’m going to say having limits as to time, energy and resources is actually helpful today. It allows you to be human, and encourages you to grant yourself permission to let go of some things in order to direct your resources into others. Your strength shows up via energy freed by what you are not doing. White spaces.

Sunday, Resolution – Nine of Wands reversed: Problems are resolved via not being the last holdout! Stubbornness is not helpful today. Yesterday, we looked at how much was too much. Today, let the “too much” part go. That’s the resolution.

Advice/Overview – Chariot Reversed: Avoid singled-minded focus (read: myopic). The Chariot is indirect anyway. Reversed, it’s so indirect as to be confusing.

AffirmationClaim Your Boundaries: I spoke to someone recently about their circle, and how it’s shrinking. I had a rather vivid image, of a circle around the person, getting smaller and smaller. I don’t think of this as inherently bad. It’s like extract, the essence being accessed. The energy is not so watered down. Reducing a sauce by cooking it down, you know? You allow the heat and time to do it’s work. That’s what this coming week is about. New moons are for starting new projects, new energy patterns, but an inherent component of a new energy pattern is continuing, day by day, to release existing patterns. You have to have white space before it can be filled. Boundaries management is always a vital skill. But for this week, you’re not trying to direct the entire orchestra of everyone in your life. You’re not off to save the world or find the “magic right words” to teach kindness to someone on the internet. You are only regulating yourself. People get confused, thinking boundaries are about regulating the behavior others. They are not…otherwise, setting boundaries would be an impossible proposition. We cannot control anybody else. But boundaries never regulate others. Boundaires specify what you allow into YOUR experience. That is much, much simpler.

Are you noting some “white spaces” in your life?

Fuzzy Math! Weekly Flow Tarot, Dec. 1 – 7

Tarot Flow Dec 1 - 7

Several months ago, I decided to tackle some tasks I had been…putting off, to be unduly generous. Truth was, I was really scared I wouldn’t be able to manage, to work it all out. And if that happened, what would I do? I had to deal. So instead of tackling the unpleasantries, I’d let myself get overwhelmed and just procrastinated the whole mess of chores.

But that didn’t feel good, and it added to anxiety. I opted to handle it and dive in I did, one to-do list at a time. It wasn’t as impossible as I was letting it seem to be…Come to think of it, I’ve got one of those lists building up a little as we speak. Uh oh.

But this coming week? It’s kind of like that.

I’m thinking of this week as “fuzzy math” on multiple fronts. Fuzzy math in the cost-benefit analysis, fuzzy math in the remembrances of yester-year, fuzzy math in the who (or what) carries the most weight category, fuzzy math in the what-you-can-and what-you-cannot accomplish category, and fuzzy math on the “how do you really rate?” question. A whole bunch of fuzzy math! And it’s the kind of problem that may be a little intimdating to even attempt to work out. But you work it out just like you work out anything else…one step at a time.

Monday, Spirit – Seven of Pentacles Reversed: In the position of Spirit, this card says the heart is not in it, and focus is not on the long-term. This is a line in the sand, past which you’re ready to go no further. It’s not the “I’ll do whatever it takes, no matter how long it takes” vibe. It’s the “I’m damn tired and I want to go home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html now” vibe. I’m not saying you don’t have a choice which urge you act on, or even which one is right for you. But the general urge here is to pack up your toys and go home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html!

Tuesday, Question, Magician Reversed: Who is pulling the strings? Who is manipulating whom? Who is deftly, perhaps imperceptibly, influencing outcome? The reversed Magician can be very clever and very sneaky, for that matter. I’m seeing one of those shell game street hustlers. Ask yourself who is stacking the odds, who has the most to gain, to stay on top of your game today. Don’t underestimate the quiet ones. Ha!

Wednesday, What to Take From the Past – Nine of Cups: Remember what used to make you feel contented, complete. Do you still have it? Appreciate it! If not so much, what can you do to access similar feelings? There are hints for you today in what used to make you happy. We’re looking for ways to revive that party in the present.

Thursday, Past – Four of Cups Reversed: Rose-colored glasses taking the edge off your memories of days gone by? The “good old days” were not always good, and much you take for granted now at one time was a distant dream. Reconcile the reality of the past with both the challenges and the blessings of the present. It will give you a more stable platform from which to ponder your next move.

Friday, What to Know – The Moon: You cannot argue with crazy. You cannot expect on a liar to confess. You cannot prove your personal, magical knowings to the skeptic. It’s a very fuzzy day, today. Like seeing the world through a soft focus lens. It would be a good time for music, mediation, movies, and all things with a bit of an ethereal, ungraspable quality about them. Not so much with the cold, hard facts, though. Don’t expect the day to be something it’s not and you’re much more likely to be happy with it—instead, exercise you “mystery and magic” muscles and you’ll find it all a lot more satisfying.

Saturday, Hopes and Fears – Two of Wands Reversed: This is a worry over not being up to the tasks at hand. It could be specifically fear surrounding a particular challenge, either from an individual or a specific situation…note that to get this card at all, the potential to hold your ground is already there. You just have to do the rest of your prep work. It’s getting there.

Sunday, What You Can’t Change – King of Pentacles Reversed: No benevolent bailout is waiting. It’s important to look after your own needs today. You can do it! You ARE doing it. So just continue to do it. And feel good about it, okay? That right there is something to be proud of. Taking care of business is awesome!

Overview/Advice – Eight of Swords: Throughout the week, look at those limitations that you attribute to circumstance, outside sources and unchangeable situations with an unwavering objectivity. Because…are they? Are they really? Beware the “Yes-But Syndrome,” where you dismiss available options with a, “Yes, but…” Taking off a self-imposed blindfold could make all the difference in coping and comfort levels.

Affirmation – Breathe. Archangel Raphael: “Take several deep breaths, and exhale slowly to awaken your energy and release old patterns.” Freedom is a good thing—and getting nudged (or smacked) with old patterns gives us the option to release those patterns. This is virtually never a comfortable exercise. But it’s virtually always a valuable one. I’ll take progress over comfort. What about you?

Are you feeling like your life is full of fuzzy math?

Reality versus Ego: Weekly Flow Tarot, Nov 3 – 9

Weekly Flow Tarot Nov 3

The New Moon we just had in Scorpio, I resolved to mind my own business. Speak with my own voice, and concern myself with my own life. Not waste my time and energy obsessing or bothering about what other people are doing or thinking or being. Because sometimes, I do get caught up in that silliness.

As is so often the case, ever since I’ve had opportunities to do just that. Or not, depending on my choices. You say, “This is what I want,” and the Universe responds, “Are you sure? Because here are two dozen and one opportunities to either achieve or change your mind.”

What’s bothering you most about other people’s behavior, right now? Jealousy? Duplicitousness? Timidity? Weakness? Whatever it is, look for it in yourself. I see strong encouragement this week to become much more honest with ourselves, lots of opportunities to realize exactly how we’ve at times been revising reality to suit the ego. Oops.

Maybe not a fun theme, but unquestionably a powerful one. I’ll take powerful over fun. How about you?

Monday, Unconscious Desires – The Devil inverted: Is there a monkey you say you want off your back, but on some level….maybe not? This strikes me a bit like a victim mindset. Relishing one’s troubles. A temptation one does not want to be able to resist. Choosing helplessness. If you’re having trouble freeing yourself from an addictive feeling situation or a no-choice quandary, the question to ask is quite obvious. Do you truly want to be free? Or is there some secondary gain you get from remaining stuck?

Tuesday, Present – Eight of Swords inverted: Today has a window of opportunity for escape, and it’s a quick fix. Take it if you want it. If you do, and stay very centered in the current moment, you could make very big changes in a very short time.

Wednesday, Significator – Four of Cups: You’re daydreaming again! I have nothing against daydreaming. But I do think it’s important one knows they are doing it. In the position of “Significator,” I’d look to the content of the daydreams. They say something about who you are and where you are, in the moment.

Thursday, Clarification – The Emperor inverted: Some people will not be dominated. Some people will go left because you say “right.” Or maybe that “some people” is you. I know I have a tendency to be contrary when ordered around myself. When all is said and done, it becomes clear who is in charge, and who is not!

Friday, Advice – Six of Swords inverted: Don’t push too hard today to “get it all behind you.” Be satisfied with progress, not perfection. The whole picture is not clear yet.

Saturday, Relationship – Page of Swords: Talk. Plain, clear, and honest talk is your best bet here. Don’t criticize unnecessarily, but do be direct. There’s no need to belabor how to say what. Agreements in relationships made today should “take” pretty well, too. So negotiate if it’s in order.

Sunday, Problem – Eight of Pentacles Inverted: Oy. We’re tired of “working things out.” We’re tired of the pound, pound, pounding through, learning, striving, working through everything we need to manage. I get it, I do. I feel the same way! But we’ve got to do what needs to be done. No other way around it.

Overview/Advice: King of Cups: This week seemly to provide a significant window into our own subconscious. I’d take advantage of that. The King of Cups would have us acting lovingly, kindly and from the heart. He’s able to do so because he is acutely aware of what’s in his heart. Living that way can be harsh and raw at times. It means facing painful facts, acknowledging unflattering aspects of his own behavior without rationalizing away the edge. But it’s tolerable because of the soothing power of love, including self-love. Use it.

Affirmation: Pearl – Connect to the Divine: How often do we forget about this option? ASK for help! Ask for guidance! Tune in, turn on your radar and act on it. When you feel far away and disconnected is exactly the time you most need divine connection. Seek it and trust it will show up in the right way, at the right time. TRUST you’ll get what you need. We always do. It’s just not always in the package we would prefer.

Are you hearing echoes of the reality versus ego theme in your life? I am!

Illusion Ends! Weekly Flow Tarot, August 4 – 10

flow 001

Looking at this week at a whole. I’m thinking we’re talking a significant change of perspective…perhaps not entirely comfortable. Like when a child first realizes there is no Santa, it seems to be a week for outgrowing outmoded lessons. We’ve got a couple of Major Arcana (big deal) along with a mix of the other suits. But whatever form it takes in our lives, I’m really thinking it’s a long term re-orientation.

Monday, Question – Two of Wands: Black and white, this or that? While this art doesn’t show a faceoff, the Two of Wands usually implies one, although it may not be visible.  There is a choice of some sort. The job today is to clarify what it is you are choosing between.

Tuesday, Lesson – The Moon reversed: Looks like learning about some personal “crazy” – someplace where you may have been deceving yourself coming into focus. A little ouchy maybe, but good in the long run.

Wednesday, What to Take from the Past – The Hanged Man: Was there a time when your faith that everything would be okay was stronger? When you were more sure things would work out or you’d get exactly what you needed? That. That is good to bring with you into the now. Music, prayer and naps are saving graces. Showers and baths are also soothing.

Thursday, Relationship – The Fool Reversed: Don’t be petty, and don’t be surprised if somebody you’re connected to is a little petty. It’s a mood, it will pass.

Friday, Disappointment – Eight of Pentacles: Work can be so much…well, work. It’s not always exciting but responsibility can have it’s own rewards. If you’re not happy with where you are, start looking to take one step closer to where you’d like to be. It starts with now.

Saturday, Clarification – Four of Cups Reversed: Have your expectations been unrealistic? Daydreams gone amuck? Maybe what you’ve got isn’t so bad, really. It’s just not what you imagined. Maybe you can start imagining from today, huh? That’s a plan.

Sunday, What to Leave in the Past – Knight of Swords: Filters on the mouth are good. Being critical is not necessarily helpful. Saying everything you’re thinking when it is critical, not a great idea.

Overview/Advice, 7 of Pentacles: Everything this week, good bad and ugly, consider the long-term implications. You’re doing what you need to do to get where you need to get. It may not be where you expected, I got it. But hey, is it really that bad? Or does it maybe have possibilities you never imagined? Go there.

Affirmation: All is Well in my World. This is kind of self-explanatory, don’t you think? Appreciate what you’ve got, man. So many don’t have that. Be grateful. And be well. Have a great week!

How does your week look?
