Tower: Clear Air

When you’re scared about what might happen, it’s very difficult to make clear-headed, rational choices. That worst-case-scenario mindset sort of sucks all the air out of the room, you know?

And yet, I see so much currently being undertaken with exactly that mentality. In some cases individually and in others, collectively, it seems like the drama out in the wild has reached a peak so many people are in exactly this situation: trying to battle off an ever-increasing sense of impending doom.

I try to avoid that sort of thing nowadays. At least, I opt out if I realize that’s what I’m doing. It is a choice to call upon faith, I guess. It’s a choice to believe the Universe will continue to run without my stress hormones jumping into the mix.

But you know what? It really does ease transitions. Things DO work out.  Deep breaths, in and out. Taking your time. Centering. Doing the best you know how and then, doing a little rest and re-set to clear the head and refresh the body. Letting inspiration lead you forward instead of fear. It’s clear that way; a much nicer ride.

That’s also the approach I’m going to be suggesting for everyone in the coming week.  We can count on one hand the number of people who are surprsied by this. Har!

Next Week in Tarot

This week for the forecast, we have The Tower (!) as our outlook, with advice coming in as the Page of Air (Swords) from The Good Tarot.

Now, whether or not I’m using a soft, squishy-themed deck (and The Good Tarot is very much that), the Tower is still the Tower. I tend to read the Tower as beneficial in the big picture–but what don’t I read that way? However, there is no denying that the Tower is disruptive, unsettling, and often, upsetting energy. It just is. If you prefer sunshine and flowers as do I, the thunderstorms the Tower heralds may be unwelcome.

However, taken with the advice we’re getting from the Page, the phrase that comes to mind here is “clearing the air.” An illusion cannot be effectively maintained in the light of a Tower crash. You can try to cling to it if you’re so motivated. But really? That approach just doesn’t bode so well in the long run.

Side note: I don’t think we’ll have to do anything in particular here to clear the air or get things rolling on the reveals in play. I see this “Tower situation” as evolving entirely on it’s own. Tower tends to be like that. By the time you get to this energy, the momentum has already bulit and whatever is going to happen will happen, regardless of what anyone does or does not do about it.

Your best bet is to see any and all shock and disruptions as tools to provide greater clarity. Anything that’s broken, illusory, or otherwise disrupted with the Tower’s crashing is offering useful information. It furthers our understanding and opens up perspective. Remaining open to learning what you can from it without undue drama is definitely the way to go for the best outcome.

In other words, my advice for this week is to not worry over the past, but make note of the present. In the moment, y’all!

Are you (mostly) in the moment right now?

p.s. I am doing the 2019 Year-Ahead Zodiac readings. These are mp3 readings with a picture of your cards and I will be offering them at least through the end of December. These are $50 via Paypal, so just shoot me a payment and note any area of life you’re particularly interested in if you want one. ~Dix 

Knight of Wands: Passion and Harmony

Just about every day, there is some new thing people are wound up about. Have you noticed? Maybe big things, maybe little things, but they seem important to the people talking about them all.

Sometimes I follow the stories and sometimes I don’t. Mostly, if a story is interesting to me, I follow it. If it bothers or upsets me in any way, I don’t. I prioritize being happy over being involved.

There is so much of everything in this world to choose from! I make a habit of selecting those things that harmonize with what I want to give the vast majority of my attention. I think I have a better life for it.

Next Week in The Cards

Does this Messenger of Fire (aka Knight of Wands) look familiar? She should. She’s been here recently! Her job today is to describe the coming week, with advice coming specifically from the Two of Water (Two of Cups), both drawn from the Good Tarot.

Expect communication to be passionate and intense this coming week from all sides. Instead of looking for which source is the rightest of the right, seek out harmony.

It’s fine to decide what you feel is best about anything and everything. Just don’t hold your breath about others coming along for the ride. Some may, but many won’t.

The intensity we’ve got here leaves you with a choice: you can either get really, really agitated focusing on (and therefore growing) all these areas of disagreement.

Or you can happily swim along, paying attention to that which vibes with how you are feeling it. This week, actively seek out those moments, ideas, things, whatever, that resonate with you; pay less attention to everything that doesn’t.


Want some one-on-one help getting reoriented? Holler at me for a private session.


Diversity of opinion makes this world a more robust, dynamic place (and we cannot escape it anyway, so why not make peace with it)?  Both what you want and what you don’t are present in every issue. What you focus on is turned up in your world.

What do you want to turn up?

Knight of Wands: Silent Knowing

I’ve always felt a bit like a weirdo, but the sensation is getting stronger in the past couple of years. Mostly I’m okay with that. Although to be honest, it can feel a little isolating at times. I like feeling connected to other people but if I worry about that, it messes up my own vibe.

It’s not the connections with each other that matter nearly so much as your connection to what’s bigger, what’s divine, your own soul. That’s the ONLY connection that matters. Everything else comes as a reflection of that connection, that energy and never the other way around.

Can I feel compassion for those who see the world dramatically different from how I see it? Because if I can’t, I’m kind of sunk here. That group includes damn near everyone. And I want to feel kindness for damn near everyone. It makes for a happier life. It feels more like who I really am.  It doesn’t require consensus or persuasion or action by a committee, which is impossible anyway. There’s no force involved.

It just requires my energy be on point. That I can do.

This coming week is all about that inner connection that you find by way of your heart.

Here we have the Messenger of Fire (aka the Knight of Wands from the Good Tarot) and Gloxinia from Botanical Inspirations–love at first sight & proud spirit.

Where is your heart? Listen to that beat, above all the static and din of “other people’s opinions.”

On my psychic soundtrack this week, I’ve got The Sound of Silence. And it’s loud, ironically enough.

“People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening”

I’d advise the same to you. Listen to the silence and see what inspirations visit you.

Are you tuning in to the silence?

Seven of Swords: Don’t Take A Vote!

There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self. -Ernest Hemmingway

I’m used to being in my own little world, to some degree or another. I’m good with that, though. I do my best to make it a good world. Better every day.

And I’m particular about what I want in my world. Discriminating, you could even say. (And you would say, if you’re a Virgo.)

This week, the cards suggest a discriminating approach for us all.

We’ve got the Seven of Swords (or Air, from The Good Tarot) along with Magnolia–Nobility & Self-Esteem from Botanical Inspirations deck. Together, they are telling me to keep on tuning in to inner guidance without seeking permission from anybody else. The focus is on taking stock of your own business.

Make up your own mind. And allow everybody else to make up theirs. Give yourself permission not to fix. You don’t need to adjudicate. It’s enough to live in accordance with what rings true in your heart. That is a function of grounding yourself and tuning in, not group consensus.

That heart never leads you astray.

Eight of Pentacles: One Step at a Time

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. -Lao Tzu

I think nature is a whole lot more patient than I am!

I’ve been sort of wrestling with one of my writing projects. It’s a different type of writing than I normally do, and it doesn’t flow as easily to me.

It is coming together, yes. But not effortlessly.

Every word, every paragraph, I am hammering out and refining, over and over again. It’s a very “Eight of Pentacles” process. Work a little. Refine a little. Work a little more. Refine a little more. Hammer, hammer, hammer. Polish, polish, polish.

I’m not complaining, mind you. Just noting. I know it’s good to stretch outside your comfort zone.

[bctt tweet=”Growth happens just the other side of your comfort zone. #OnMyRadar” username=”goddess_dix”]

I had been feeling a little self-conscious about it. Bothered enough that I have drawn cards on the issue. They told me exactly the same thing we’re getting for the message this week. Go figure!

Next Week: Hammer it Out, Baby!

This week, we’ve got the Eight of Pentacles (or 8 of Earth) from the Good Tarot and Asters–Elegance & Patience–from the Botanical Inspirations deck. These two messages are perfectly harmonious.

You don’t reach the height of accomplishment in a fell swoop. You do so one step at a time. This is true whether we’re talking about writing an article, learning a skill, building a relationship or changing the world.

One. Step. At. A. Time. That’s it.

This week, do not bemoan all the steps not completed, be they your own or another’s. Just keep moving forward, incrementally. That’s really all that’s required and frankly, it’s also all that’s possible.

So it may be wise to appreciate the view along the way instead of complaining about the view you don’t yet have. Of course, I always think that’s wise.

You hammering it out, too?

If you need a little help figuring it all out, give me a holler for a one-on-one.

Ace of Pentacles: Watering the Right Seeds

Everything you do starts with the tiniest of seeds. The 50 year marraige starts with a first day. The child–well, you know what that starts with. The new lease on life begins with a single idea. When you focus on it, you get inspiration. And when you act on that inspiration, you’re watering the seed.

Getting Real This Week

This week’s Tarot gives us the Ace of Pentacles (or Earth, as depicted in the Good Tarot) teams up with the Anemone flower, associated with “Anticipation” from the Botanical Inspirations deck.

Anytime you’re in the suit of Earth, you’re talking real-world manifestations. With the Ace, however, that manifestation is very new, like a young seedling just starting out. It’s baby energy! It’s a new project, a new direction, a new venture just getting underway.

These cards advise us to begin taking small, deliberate (and hopefully, inspired) steps now in line with our goals and what’s more? Expect those steps to work out.

“Don’t create problems you don’t have in your head.” That’s what I tell friends and Tarot folks alike, with regularity. Sometimes, I tell myself, too.

But the other side of that advice-coin is, “Create success in your head!”

Anticipate good outcomes. Even if the process doesn’t look like a good outcome to you quite yet, keep solid in the faith everything is working out in perfect order. This is the energetic equivalent of getting out of your own way so you can see as the Universe unfolds a path before you. That sounds so simple, doesn’t it? It sounds too simple to work. And yet, it does.

The discipline required isn’t that of forcing outer circumstances to bend. The discipline is in lining up your own thought processes. It’s very easy to tell how well you’re lined up with what you want. Look at your emotions for cues. If it feels good, you’re more lined up! If it feels bad, not so much. Take a break. Get off the subject. Talk yourself down or distract yourself, whichever is quicker and easier.

Just whatever you do, don’t bother trying to resolve a problem to make yourself feel better. Get yourself feeling better, and then you’ll be in the position to receive inspired solutions.

There is a world of difference between what an individual can come up with when mired in a state of stress or panic versus what the Universe hands out freely to those open and receptive to divine inspiration. You may be able to make progress hammering it out, but it’s going to be slow and painful. Solutions from inspiration win every single time!

[bctt tweet=”Let your emotions guide your focus. If it feels good, go sharper. If it feels bad, diffuse. #OnMyRadar” username=”goddess_dix”]

Expect your life to work. Expect everything to turn out. Expect yourself to figure it out along the way. Looking for evidence of progress will always serve you better than looking for disaster. It does require faith, but it needn’t be blind faith. Test it out for yourself, starting with subjects that are less intense for you. Play around with small ideas, small desires, those that you can hold lightly and without a lot of angst. Prove to yourself it works by watching it in action. Then, as bigger issues capture your attention, it’s easier to use the same methods.

This is exactly how you take a seed and grow it. Whatever your most active, intense focus is what you’re on the fast-track for making real.  You get to decide which seed you’re watering here. The seed of disaster, or the seed of progress? It’s up to you.

Which seeds are you watering? For a little support getting on track, holler at me for a 1-on-1.
