Faith Through the Hills: Weekly Tarot, Aug 29 – Sep 4

When I was a kid, there were certain back roads we went down sometimes, that had big hills. And mom would sometimes drive these roads, way faster than she probably should have. And it my tummy would drop, like being on a roller coaster ride.

I laughed and laughed and laughed. And there was nothing I loved better than when we got to drive on one of those hilly backroads.

I loved it even more than when we sang “Row Your Boat” rounds in the car and would get confused and laugh all over the verses.

For some people, the way we rode those roads wouldn’t have been fun. It would have been terrifying or upsetting.

But it never was for me. I had complete faith in my mom. I knew it was all okay. Never entered my mind it would be anything but. So I got to fully experience the joy of how it felt.

Faith is a beautiful thing.

Note to self: Clean rug before using the good camera.

Note to self: Clean rug before using the good camera.

Faith will serve you well in the week ahead. A lot of this week has kind of a slow-motion feel to it. That makes sense as we’re hitting full on Mercury Rx. And Mercury has been showing his butt some even during the shadow leading up to it, so it looks like this one might be a little ride (Aug 30 – Sep 22).

But it’s okay. Really, it’s okay.

Because you know what? What the ride is like is never about the condition of the road. It’s always about the emotional state of the rider. Those bumps and potholes are always gonna be there. They can be either annoying and scary or exciting and fun, depending on where you are vibrating at when you hit ’em.

Have faith and have fun.

Monday, The Emperor: Stay in your own lane and watch the road. The Emperor is about control, but to me? His strongest position of control is always that of self-control. What other people are doing is of less interest than what he wants, what he’s doing, and where he’s going. Nothing gets him to lose sight of his goals.

Tuesday, Ace of Pentacles: One step at a time, one item off the checklist at a time. A great day to enjoy nature or physical pleasures like good food or yes, sex.

Wednesday, Six of Cups Rx: A little uneasiness around other people’s words. Who is trustworthy? You don’t have to figure it out on the spot. Time will sort it out. You just remain rooted in what you know to be.

Thursday, The Hermit Rx: Don’t take another’s word for reality. You don’t have to isolate–in fact, I would suggest you don’t. But everything, everything, everything you need to measure according to your own yardstick.

Friday, The Fool: Have some fun for God’s sakes!

[bctt tweet=”Fun isn’t where you’re at or what you’re doing. Fun is all attitude. #OnMyRadar ” username=”goddess_dix”]

Saturday, Knight of Swords Rx: If somebody says something that rubs you the wrong way, let it roll off your back. Don’t worry or overthink it. Distract yourself!

Sunday, Ace of Cups Rx: Emotional replenishment time today. You may be a little low on the emotional energy. If you are, it’s going around. Be gentle with yourself. Schedule light and make room for fun. You’ll soon feel better.

Overview/Advice, Six of Pentacles: Pace yourself, and budget your energy. Generosity is awesome, but the most important kind of generosity is that of the spirit.

Affirmation: Bat. The bat symbolizes a rebirthing process. Hello, caves!

You feeling the faith?

Fog off the Mirror: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 8 – 14

Weekly Flow Tarot, June 8 -14, 2015

Is anybody besides me ready to do a jig of happiness over Mercury retro ending?

Lordy, lordy. This retrograde round has brutal from my seat anyway–enough that I barely noticed the full moon in Sagittarius we just had, and it’s hard to miss the largeness of a full moon Sagittarius. I was literally pushing myself to the limits to take care of business.

This retrograde also has featured elements of emotional clearing that has surprised me, considering it went  down in Gemini, an airy, intellectual sign. I guess that makes it possible for more detachment than usual; easier to clean house that way. As Mercury stations midweek, we’ll be on the final stages of the emotional clearing bout, and not a moment too soon if you ask me.

But I shouldn’t bitch. After all, we get what when need to get when we need it. This week, looks to be plenty of that.

Monday, The Waiting Game – Seven of Wands: Don’t wait for others to back you up on what you know is right. You may have to fight the tide a while before expecting acknowledgement, let alone buy-in. I don’t care if you’re doing your solo while the chorus is singing an entirely different song. Stay on YOUR page, don’t deviate, and let the world catch up…or not.

Tuesday, Partnerships & Alliances – Ace of Pentacles reversed: Is the money an unspoken issue in a partnership? Is there secret resentment over workload distribution? Look to practical, physical concerns in partnerships. This could be a simple as who does the dishes. Or not. But be aware of very tangible issues planting the smallest seed of discontent in partnerships. Go out of your way to be not only fair, but generous as well. It’s worth it, isn’t it? Also note: if you hear your brain saying, “It’s the principle of the thing…” look at that topic very closely because it’s a potential issue waiting to blossom.

Wednesday, Heartache & Loss – Eight of Cups reversed: That pain? It’s from not letting go completely. Accept what’s gone is gone, and let yourself feel the loss. You don’t have to nurse the hurt, just allow it to be so it can flow through you, you know? Only then will you be able to move on, clean and clear.

Thursday, Movement, Choices Decisions – Three of Pentacles reversed: Plan in pencil. Fast-thinking and flexibility is your friend. Yes, you want to map out what you’re doing, sure. Just be ready for some fast footwork once projects get underway. You may need to reconfigure your route. Stay frosty out there, friends!

Friday, Power – Ten of Cups: Ahhhh! The strength and joy that comes in the form of a loving family–and here, I mean your emotional family, whether they are blood-bonded to you or not. Those people that love you can fill your heart and give you rest, solace and the drive to go on. Appreciate the Hell out of them, why don’t you?

Overview/Advice – Page of Pentacles: Be clear, direct and decisive with both communication and action this week. Make sure your behavior matches your objectives. While you’ll be called upon to remain flexible, you will not be called on to be ambiguous. That is a meaningful distinction. In fact, a lot of the energy this week looks to be aimed at minimizing ambiguities and confusion. I’m seeing someone wiping the fog off a mirror to get a better view. This week, you will have the ability to clear some fog off the mirror. The bonus with a clear mirror is that you also get to see who is behind you.

Affirmation, Divine Order – Archangel Raguel: “Everything is how it needs to be right now. Look past the illusion, and see the underlying order.” We are where we are for a reason, no? What looks like a mess, close up and in the middle, can be–okay, generally is–part of a bigger picture. Even legitmate messes don’t just “happen.” They are there for a reason. Whether or not they serve a purpose, however, is our choice.

How’s your week looking?

Revisionist History: Weekly Flow, January 19 – 25

forecast 002

Many years ago, I went to a reader at a psychic fair and asked my favorite question to ask of readers: “What do you see regarding my spiritual development?

Am I doing it right? Am I missing something? Am I progressing fast enough?

It seems those questions never go away completely, at least not for me. Because I try to follow the dots, I try to do what I’m led to do when I’m led to do it, but it doesn’t always work out “right” by my expectations. It feels like failure, but that doesn’t mean it is failure.

Almost 10 years ago, I got the opportunity to buy a low carb community. I had all the signs there, clear as day, in my face obvious, this was the right choice, so I did it. Enthusiastically and with both feet, I jumped in! A couple years of relentless work went by and I was incredibly disappointed, in both myself and my spiritual support system, when that venture didn’t end up as successful as I’d hoped.

That path, however, branched out in ways I could not have anticipated. It pushed me to expand my knowledge base and skillset way beyond my comfort zone.  More recently, that chain of circumstances has left me managing a sizable low carb Facebook page, at a time when I’m getting clear signs I need to attend to my own eating habits and health. Not wanting to be a big, fat hypocrite, I have very much cleaned up my own act. Had I not found myself at the helm of that community now, I’d probably still be eating junk.

So I could say that initial decision was a failure. Or I could say, it gave me exactly what I needed, even when I had no idea I needed it. There have been SO MANY times, so many projects and plans and ventures, that have gone down exactly the same way. It’s almost as if the Universe conspired against my will to look after my best interests and turned “failures” into big, fat blessings. When I manage some perspective, I can begin to see at least some of the many layers I would never have been able understand at the time.

There are echos of the past ringing throughout this weekly forecast, along with the ability to redefine some of that past. While I’m usually not a big fan of revisionist history (in the self-serving sense), this week it can work in your favor—not by denying what’s come before so much as reframing it. Reframing your history is an incredibly powerful tool. It’s a good week to wield it to your advantage.

When I did the draw for last week, I felt the urge to do a second for this week. I noticed we got the same affirmation (after shuffling). That suggests this week is a continuation of last week’s vibe. Hello, Mercury retrograde (Jan. 21 – Feb. 11, 2015)!

Monday, What you Can Change – Ace of Swords Reversed: You can change how you think, and what you accept as immutable reality. Really, one single thought, a core concept reversed, will put everything else in an entirely different framework. It’s a day to question assumptions and convictions to see if they hold up. Whatever you’ve just decided is, well, is it?

Tuesday, Friendship – Nine of Pentacles: A world of education at your fingertips, courtesy friends. If you are having trouble mastering your lower impulses especially, friends can provide a veritable how-to manual. Even if you don’t ask for advice directly, look for instruction on dealing with your own situation by how your friends have dealt with their life.

Wednesday, Romance,  Queen of Cups Reversed: Connections are intact and strong, but I’m expecting excessive sentimentality and/or out-and-out moodiness with this Queen on her head. Tears are quite possible. A hot bath and (maybe) a glass of wine will soothe jangled nerves. Regardless, know the emotional intensity is a passing thing. Don’t treat it as permanent. Just let it flow through you and run it’s course.

Thursday, Career – Emperor Reversed: Work mate says, “You’re not the boss of me.” Not a good day to play dictator with coworkers! Possibly, there is a boss that lets things get out of hand. As far as you are concerned, keep yourself in check with work-related issues. Self-control is the name of the game and personal responsibility pays dividends.

Friday, Success – Six of Pentacles: Generosity pays off today. You may be either benefactor or donor, but group endeavors and giving of your time, energy or money has rewards. This is the magic that brings it all together. Yay!

Saturday, Past – Eight of Cups Reversed: Eh…echos of the past. What do you claim to “be over” but aren’t, completely? This floats in your brain. There may be triggers, there may be tears. Don’t be frustrated that that emotional history is not scrubbed clean from your life. It’s not a sign of weakness, dealing with past issue. It’s a sign you’re strong enough to continue your work at a higher octave.

Sunday, Blocking or Covering – Strength: This is the note that plays in the background throughout the week. Slow, gentle, steadily dealing with each day, each feeling, each challenge as it arises. Going into a Mercury Retrograde the 21, we’re clearly reviewing the past but as dull as that sounds, it’s got an enormous perk: We have a chance to adjust it’s meaning! That is a wonderful, if sometimes underappreciated, gift.

Overview/Advice – Five of Pentacles Reversed: Stop focusing on what you don’t have for God’s sakes! Go back to focusing on what you do. How you view your station is utterly and completely your own choice and while a perspective of lack drains you, a perspective of gratitude feeds you. Be willing to reach out for support when you need it, all while retaining responsibility for your own damn self.

Affirmation – I am safe in the Universe and all life loves and supports me. What needs to happen, happens. The Universe has your back.

Are you feeling echos of the past lately?

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?

Not Driving that Car: Weekly Flow Tarot, Jan. 5 – 11

thumbnail

To me, this is an almost invisible weekly forecast. It’s like the most important stuff going on is between your ears, you know? Not that is unusual in and of itself, but it’s pronounced this week. We’ve got 3 Major Arcana cards, so the week is officially a big deal. And all the other suits are represented. Hence, some variety.

But another thing that jumps at me, both the affirmation card and the advice/overview card give the same, very clear directive: Go with the flow and do not try to control it. Ride, don’t drive. And backseat (or passenger seat) driving counts!

Monday, Significator – Seven of Swords: Self-deception is definitely a temptation today. This can go either way, incidentally. You can decide you’re being so much more awesome (or blameless) than you really are, or you can decide you totally suck and take responsibility for what’s not yours. Just try to sidestep the temptation by prodding yourself to back up self-assessment with facts today, okay?

Tuesday, What is Hidden – Temperance: You don’t see everything that’s gone into the mix. If something doesn’t make sense today, understand there are other factors that you cannot see. Partial information, and hidden influences at play. Sit tight.

Wednesday, Future Life – Judgment Reversed: Who did what ceases to be as important once the mess is cleaned up. I’m reminded of a quote I cannot find at the moment, about ignorant people seeking to lay blame, whereas the wise seek to find solutions. It’s relevant to understand how things happen, sure. But who’s at fault matters a lot less than how to clean it up.

Thursday, Friends and Family – Three of Wands Reversed: Loved ones are dealing with their own disrupted plans. Doesn’t mean the world is blowing up, but they may be distracted or under stress. Be kind.

Friday, Health – Ace of Pentacles Reversed: Improvement on the health front is likely, but more needs to be done. Ace of Pentacles would suggest food and exercise is relevant. Hello, New Year’s Resolutions!

Saturday, Present – Seven of Cups Reversed: Confusing! Reversed, the Seven of Cups doesn’t say you’re being fooled. It says you cannot TELL if you have a clear view or not.

Sunday, Lesson – Justice Reversed: Sometimes circumstances are not fair. Sometimes people don’t seem to get their due. But this lesson isn’t so much “life isn’t fair” as I’m reading it; I’m taking it as a notice about how life responds to our personal sense of balance and groundedness. If you’re not balanced, your life is not, either. Get yourself aright, Grasshopper!

Advice/Overview – Five of Wands Reversed: It’s not worth fighting what happens this week, simple as that. Not worth fighting family or friends. Not worth fighting to have everything just your way. Look for calm, Zen, peace this week. Let events unfold. Don’t try to force. Be the grass in the wind, not the brittle branch, okay? That’s your assignment.

Affirmation – I let go of all expectations. Pretty self-explanatory, huh? Don’t try to script out the whole “life movie.” Take what comes and look to find what you’re grateful for not only each day, but each morning, afternoon and evening. Allow the Universe to do it’s thing. You may as well accept the Universal schedule because seriously? No other choice.

Zen is the keyword this week and I’d repeat that affirmation–I let go of all expectations–over and over every time you feel anxious. It’s a good one.

How’s your week looking?

Two-Step Forward Tango: Weekly Flow Tarot, Dec 29 – Jan 4

Tarot Dec 29 - Jan 4

As I look this over, I think of the bit I just read today from my friend Josi, on the 1st quarter moon.

“It is quite common to encounter blocks to intentions at this time. These blocks are not necessarily horrible. Sometimes they are small things that we overcome quite easily. But what they do is put that challenge in front of you so you can walk through the whole assessment thing. You stop, consider your goal, consider the challenge and then decide if you still want to follow through. ” –Josi Case

That’s what this week looks like to me. Challenges and reassessing—two steps forward, one step back in a perhaps-frustrating-but-probably-fruitful dance. I think this is the kind of week that won’t make sense in the middle. It’s only after the fact we’ll realize what all happened. You know what I mean?

Monday, Goal- Magician reversed: The goal is not to have to force each and every little bit of the process. We want a little flow without having to “make it happen” utterly and entirely. Since we’re talking “goal,” that means we’re not there yet.

Tuesday, Unconscious Desires – Six of Cups:  A wish for things to be simpler, less complicated. This is a desire to let go, relax and trust the first person who stands before us. It’s a wish for a sense of innocence. In the position of “unconscious desires,” you may not be aware of just how strong this drive actually is. Be sure you’re not inadvertently overlooking the obvious or blindly trusting today. Not saying things ARE complicated or people ARE untrustworthy. For all I know, that’s not so. But factor the weight of personal desire out of the evaluation algorithm.

Wednesday, Partner, Nine of Wands reversed: The partner here is tired and wants to just let go. Expect this, and offer a hand if appropriate.

Thursday, Future – Strength reversed: You don’t have to hold out forever. But for now? Yeah. Hang on, slow, steady and gentle.

Friday, Disappointment – Chariot reversed: This is a detour. Disappointment over getting sidetracked. Even reversed, the Chariot is a pretty positive card. But I’m reading this as impatience with a delay. Sorry!

Saturday, Blocked or Covering – Queen of Swords: We need a release, and one not based on emotional consideration. Where are you overbooked, overworked, unable to keep up? What ball doesn’t really belong in your court? What habit must you give up in order to reach your goal? What’s weighing you down, or in your way? That’s the root of the detour, right there.

Sunday, Past – Five of Pentacles: The Five of Pentacles is nobody’s favorite card (at least, that I know of), but hey…it’s in the position of “past.” That helps. I see this as longing for something now gone, feeling a loss of old. It could be as simple as mourning a loss of innocence from Tuesday’s “unconscious desire.” It could be feeling Saturday’s realization, which cannot really be taken back. Honor whatever feelings you have, but reach out to your support system as well. I find there is always a support system available when I see this card; people are often just reluctant to invoke it.

Advice/Overview – The Moon: This week is a very small, and in some ways deceptive part of the picture. A lot of grounding and reassurance can take place via reframing. Work a little magic with your words, focusing on the where you’re going over where you’ve been. The moon is the realm of both magic and madness, so work the magic hard to skip the crazy part.

AffirmationListen to your heart. When we’ve got a challenging stint facing us, doing the best we can, doing what we feel good about deep down inside, is a sort of insurance. This is a way you can live without regret, so long as you know you’ve always done the best you know how to do. I used to ask my kids when facing dilemmas, “What would you feel good about?” I suspect this may be a useful question to ask yourself this week, focused only on yourself. What would I feel good about doing? Whatever it is, do that.

How’s your week looking?
