12/08/13: Value-Added Proposition / 4 Torches

Today, the beauty and value (Venus) comes from the doing (Aries). That’s the message from this version of the Four of Wands. Maybe it’s an event in the traditional sense, or maybe not. Either way, it’s a great day for “putting your money where your mouth is,” as they say.

Put your focus, energy and effort into what you most value and expect satisfying results. Anything else is anybody’s guess. It also turns into a value-added proposition. YOUR energy makes that which you value more valuable.

Do you have plans to do this?

10/06/13: “That One Guy…” / 4 of Wands Rx

rev-4-wands

Don’t send the invitations out yet, if you’re seeing the reversed Four of Wands! Because something about the partnership, venue or agenda is not sewn up yet. Often referred to as “the wedding card” (the more traditional RWS version shows formal event preparations), this card can speak to weddings, celebratory events, or rites of passage. I sometimes even get it referring to a more psychological concept of safe haven, a place of rest and respite. Tarot fours are stable structures in whatever context.

Think incomplete here. Like the acquaintance that you feel “more or less” at home with, or the party where you like the majority of the people attending, this sense of solid, safe union isn’t utterly absent and may well develop over time. It’s just not quite there yet. Sort of like you dig  most of the inlaws, except, “Eh, not to sure about that one guy.”

That’s okay. Doesn’t mean “that one guy” is a dick. He may be a peach of a fellow. Just keep your eye on him, because you don’t know yet!

Consider this a coming together being underway, but still with reservations.

Can you relate?

08/16/13: Sacred Space / Four of Wands

4-of-wands

In the Gaian Tarot’s Four of Wands (Fire), we see a woman with her magic circle about and four candles,  presumably in the four quarters (compass directions). This woman is undoubtedly getting her “ritual on” under the full moon.

Now, I frequently read the Four of Wands as a safe haven—the happy home, and that certainly applies here in that she’s set up her own sacred space. But this version seems to also emphasize to the rite of passage nuance of the card as well. Often Full moon rituals are those of maximizing, gain and drawing in what you want.

Take a minute today to consider your space—physical and energetic. Is it full of what you desire? Tidy up if need be, getting rid of what does not serve you. Then claim yourself a corner, an oasis, a tiny chunk of real estate to serve as sacred space and safe haven. This is an act of creation, symbolic of what you want to create in your life. I don’t care if it’s a real-world, physical space or an astral plane space or a listening-to-Nina-Simone-makes-me-feel-good space.

Just make it yours. And populate it with what you want. It matters.

Do you have a sacred space?

Weekly Tarot Forecast, May 13, 2013 / Niggling Bothers

For this week’s Tarot forecast, the energy continues to be slightly off-kilter. Sorry! Because I know my daughter is going to fuss at me, and I’m sure she’s not alone in her sentiments.

“Mom, you need to quit drawing crappy cards.” -Daughter

Short answer: We’re maybe 80% of the way there, but with a shot left before it all feels safe and secure. Address any niggling bothers to get the energy smooth flowing again.

Are you feeling this?

Short Answer: Whatever “truth” you etched in your soul after the “big breakup.” It’s not so true and it costs you. Hope that helps! Much love.

01/23/13: Something Bigger | 4 of Fire

4-wands“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Lao Tzu

This is the Four of Wands, or Four of Fire in Osho-Zen speak, “Participation.” Traditionally, you see this card for a big event—wedding, funeral, celebration, graduation, whatever.

The book identifies this symbol as mandala double dorje, a Tibetan symbol for thunderbolt and a source of tremendous energy. That’s in keeping with the traditional version of this card. The giving and receiving, back and forth, make the whole greater than the sum of it’s parts. It is a marriage of energy, and yours is definitely in the mix.

I’d look to be part of a bigger whole today. That’s where the magic happens.

Do you feel part of something bigger?
