Drive Yourself: Tarot Forecast, Jan 16 – 22, 2017

One of the gifts I want to give myself  is a smoother ride, through life.

Happier. More joy. More connected. More in the flow, in the zone. More laughter. More freedom. More excitement. More fun.

Get the most out of this delightful experience.

And in the quest to hover on center, in day-to-day awareness, it’s becoming increasingly evident: the less I’m about campaigning the world to correct itself according to my specs, and the more I’m about just letting the rest of the world be as they will, the easier Zen comes. I guess stabs at controlling the inherently uncontrollable doesn’t contribute to Zen.

I don’t think of myself as being judgy or especially critical (because I’m not), but it can creep up sometimes in little ways. I’ll get the urge to set somebody straight either directly or even just in my head. I’ll notice I’m not feeling so good and say, “Hey, what’s up with this?!”

And I’m glad for each time it does. It alerts me to an opportunity to find more peace. It is a GIFT, getting that nudge.

‘Cause for the most part, I’ve learned to live and let live. I’m pretty damn good at it. But when I’m a little off kilter, even just a smidge, I’d like to know early on so I can make adjustments. I like to drive my own car, that way.

Drive Yourself: Tarot Forecast, Jan 16 - 22, 2017 1

Theme this week is about who is driving the car. Who’s input are you seeking? Are you eyes on your own lane?

Monday, Four of Cups rx: With the giant hand offering a drink, this image suggests a potential for misunderstanding or delusions. Somebody is drunk. Dreaming it up or down, either one. Sometimes, people avoid acting on longstanding dreams because they don’t want to risk the possibility of losing the dream. This has kind of the same feeling. Some confusion or lack of clarity in terms of what you expect vs. future visions. Take it easy, slow and not too seriously today.

Tuesday, The Chariot: Awesome card here–a road opening, opportunities to make progress. Some movement may be indirect, sidestepping obstacles. But we have some open roads, so take the turn and keep going! Good day.

Wednesday, Ten of Wands rx: Delegate. Hand off responsibilities that are not yours–and expect any responsibilities that are really yours that have been handed off come home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html to roost. Do what’s your and let what doesn’t matter go.

Thursday, Three of Pentacles rx: Living by committee won’t work so well. Your choices may not sit well with the collective. If someone comes to you with their desires for you, acknowledge and appreciate the care that prompts it, and then go on and do what is in your own heart anyway. Do not try to control and do not allow yourself to be controlled. Acknowledge the good intentions while still making your own choices.

Friday, Tower rx: I’m seeing a stack of blocks that wobble but don’t fall. Weaknesses and issues with structure will be more visible than normal. Insights about circumstances that are “iffy” will be visible. You’ll be able to spot this today so use that info.

Saturday, Page of Swords rx: Running with scissors? Not the best plan. Words can come across more harshly than intended. Don’t worry about it. Just accept what’s useful, constructive, and discard the rest. Be aware, your own words may be heard more harshly than you were aware or intending. Mind your words.

Sunday, Ace of Swords: Clarity to end the week. Clear idea, communication, a clear message, a clear thought. Muddled info from earlier in the week should come into sharper focus. Good!

Overview/Advice, The Hermit:Bathing lady knows how to live it up! Any conflict and drama comes up? Step back. Takes some time for you. Don’t try to fix it, fix it, change it, change it. Step back and get clarity for yourself first, foremost and exclusively. You cannot impart clarity to others, you can only inspire it through your own clarity. So step back, retreat, and get a handle on your own grounding. Everything is easier when you’re grounded.

Affirmation: “If I am resisting ‘evil,’ I am attracting ‘evil.'” Maybe you don’t agree with this, but one version most will be able to see. If you’re very focused on a particular issue or worry, that issue becomes a bigger part of your experience and you’ll see it everywhere.  Whatever your major focuses of concern, you’ll be experiencing evidence of it, the essence of it becoming part of your day-to-day experience, because that’s where your focus is. The more you focus, the more momentum you add to the overall energy. It’s up to you to decide how you want to live. But it’s something to be aware of. You do not need to be absorbed in a problem to be a part of the solution–problems and solutions are very different energies.

If you’re bothered by the hate in the world, then talking about all the hate and sharing examples, and being outraged and upset does not drop the sum total of hate in the world, but does make it a bigger part of your in-the-moment experience. It immerses you in the very thing you don’t want. Whereas shifting focus to what you’d like to see instead–kindness and love and understanding–that is the energy of the solution. You are bathing in what you want and helping the collective make the shift by adding your light to the path, easing the way for those that would follow you.

Align with what you want, not against what you don’t.

That is how I’m looking to stay in my zone. Then it doesn’t matter, what someoone else believes. All that matters is if I’m living in close proximity to my own beliefs. If I want to see more kindness in the world, then I can be more kind. If I want to see more joyfulness in the world, I can actively participate in making some of that. I get to play in the energy I want more of, and be the change I want to see. It doesn’t get any better than that.


I’m gonna close down the 2107 Zodiac Year-Ahead special after this week, so if you’re of a mind to get one, now’s the time.

This week’s forecast uses the Housewives Tarott and some kind of Abraham-Hicks deck. Ha!

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.

20161005_153415_hdr

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.

Appreciation isn't born from circumstance. It's from how you think about circumstance. Click To Tweet

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?

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!

Fun isn't where you're at or what you're doing. Fun is all attitude. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

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?

Get Off of My Cloud: Weekly Tarot, July 18 – 24

If you could go back in time and do it all over again, would you?

I’m not talking about Marty McFly noting the winning sports teams. I mean reliving your life, making those choices that led you from your start in this lifetime to where you are, now.

Because I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t even entertain the notion.

It’s not because I couldn’t find things to do differently. Oh man, could I!

But I like who I am. I realize, every day that preceded, every choice and every word and every action, helped lead me here. It helped me create who I am, now. I did the best I knew how to in the moment, and through that, I’ve grown. I’ve learned. I’ve experienced. All that stuff I didn’t want helped me clarify what I do want. All the ways I didn’t like being helped me see, how I do like being now.

I don’t believe in guilt. It’s an utterly useless emotion–feeling bad about what cannot be changed poisons us in the present and keeps us from living fully in the now, the single place where we have any power whatsoever. Worry over the future serves a similar function. It takes us out of our now and shifts our experience from whatever goodness we have at our fingertips to virtually living an experience we don’t want.

No. Just, no.

My path is MY path. Those who share the road with me are not inhabitants of my path and my path does not determine theirs. There are no do-overs. There are no try-harders. There is only now, now, now.

This is my cloud. You can come visit if you like and we are vibing similarly. Or not. But right now, it’s a very good idea to be selective, who and what you invite onto your cloud.

20160716_134328_HDR

As I look over this week, the outstanding impression I get is the importance of staying grounded in your own well-being. It’s anything but a static week. The cues from the outside world may well be inconsistent and fast-changing. Plugging in to the mass consciousness vibe will be like a roller coaster: up, down, fast, slow, hither and yon. Not stable at all! The cues within, you have control over by direction your thoughts and attention. I’m not suggesting you don’t care about the world. I’m suggesting you care about the world and everyone in it (which, ahem, includes you) enough to make sure YOU are not adding to the chaos. How? By consciously managing your own vibe.

Stay in the love, folks. Stay in the love–and if anything or anybody makes you wobble in that love? Retreat and get yourself right back there. You do that, and your light contributes to eradicating the darkness.

You do more good to yourself and the world at large by staying in the love than anything else you can do.

Monday, Two of Wands: No need for a stand-off with conflicting desires (either within you, or between you and another). Just let them all be for now and allow the time for clarity to do it’s work by emerging from the confusion. There’s a tendency to want to push back, push back. But instead, stand back, stand back. Let it marinate today.

Tuesday, Wheel of Fortune: Click, click, click into place. A lucky break may show up, or a bit of good fortune, boom! At your feel. Celebrate it, for sure. But also? Know the days that don’t feel quite as lucky are still filled to the brim with good things. You just have to acknowledge them to turn them up.

Wednesday, Six of Cups rx: Do you have faith? Do you trust? Think of your level of trust and knowing here as “what’s in the water.” The more you drink of it, the greater the blessings you allow in. There is a tendency to question goodness today and look for who’s out to hurt you. Don’t. It’s not a time to count grievances. Turn up your blessings by counting THOSE.

Thursday, Page of Cups rx: Moody, temperamental day for many. The upside? These emotional states are very fast-moving. So if you’re got a mood going you don’t dig, it’s not hard to turn it around with a little distraction and conscious cultivation of the feeling state you’d prefer.  And if you’re already feeling what you like? Well, milk it a bit and enjoy the ride. Hugs and naps are great medicine today.

Friday, The Emperor: Care SO MUCH about how you feel that you’re unwilling to compromise on feeling good. So much of our energy can go to trying to please others–an impossible task if ever there was one. You don’t have to be a mirror for the emotional state of others. Instead, be the example for the others to mirror (if they so choose, or not, if they don’t choose). You are in control of your own feelings, so take advantage of that!

Nobody can climb on your cloud unless hand 'em a ticket. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Saturday, Seven of Wands: Stand firm in what you know to be true for you and ignore anyone or anything that is not in alignment with your understanding. Shortly, those that don’t vibrate on your frequency will disappear from your circle of experience.

Sunday, Queen of Swords rx: It’s a good time to retreat and sort through what you’ve got going. Be it physical stuff or emotional engagements or whatever, prioritize and sort. Put your attention on what matters to you, what feels good, and let go what does not. This isn’t a judgey thing. It’s a being happier thing.

Overview/Advice, The Hermit: Declare yourself observer and student this week. Rather than emotionally engage in everything you see, step back and study it. Notice and look for trends. Spend plenty of quiet time, alone time, and replenishing time. Meditation is a great idea! Peacefulness and mindfulness helps you stay grounded in the midst of anyone else’s negative emotions. You don’t have to sign on for that class, you know? You can step back and stay out of the storm. In fact, it’s highly advised.

My inner being guides me through my emotions. When you feel bad, it’s not punishment or karma or random chance. It’s a signal, that how you’re looking at the world is not in sync with how your higher self sees it. We may perceive lack and pain and chaos. But in the bigger picture, the way spirit sees the world, everything is happening in the right place at the right time. I know that sounds like a contradiction but it’s not. There is a an infinite diversity to life experience and sometimes even the most unpleasant ones lead beauty and grace. No matter what you’re feeling in any given time, look for the feeling one step up, one step up, one step up. This IS your emotional guidance system and it’s all you need to stay in strong alignment with spirit. The better you feel, the easier it is to remain connected and the stronger that connection is. So just look at all emotion as your inner GPS, guiding you to greater happiness and fulfillment. And for that to work, we must rely on all emotion, wanted or not, since all of it provides valuable information.

Be well out there!

Shady! Weekly Tarot Forecast, July 4 – 10

I get a funny, slightly disturbed feeling being lied to. Like milk that’s going bad, you know? It’s almost, but not quite right. It generally hits my solar plexus. It’s not always very noticeable–and my desire to believe can lead me to disregard it. Many times, it has. But the feeling itself is still valid, and very reliable.

I almost never say anything, when I get that feeling.

That is what this forecast reminded me of. That shady, “off” feeling–and the decision not to say anything about it.

20160702_175811_HDR

Looking at this forecast as a whole, there’s sort of a “shady” feeling about it. Like there is plenty to misconstrue, a bit of confusion. I’m seeing one of those shell games, or 3 Card Monte. I’m not saying someone is actively trying to con you. But truthfully? It’s a possibility. Although much of the time, people con themselves. That, too, is a possibility this week. Most of these cards are minor arcana, however. So I’m thinking the confusion doesn’t have super long-term consequences. Of the week, Friday’s recommendation for self-care and the overview of taking some time to yourself are the most important parts to note.

While Mars is now direct and that feeling of trudging through mud is abating, this week still feels slower-moving than most. Progress is possible, but gradual. Two steps forward, one step in a completely random direction and…where the Hell was I going again? Like that. So take your time, okay? Rushing not advised. Roll with it, friends!

Monday, 7 of Cups Rx: This smacks of self-delusion, very possibly a “too good to be true” thing that, unsurprisingly, isn’t. Listen to the intuitive nudge of feedback–specifically, that one you’d like to ignore. Because if you don’t…well, you’re gonna be cussing yourself in the morning, Ya dig?

Tuesday, 4 of Cups: Content or complacent? That’s a matter of perspective. Either way, there’s more interest in dreaming about what could be today than actually taking action on the issue. If you have the choice, I’d schedule light today because it doesn’t seem super productive. But if you get a chance for a little daydreaming, the energetic weather should support that.

Wednesday,  Knight of Swords Rx: Somebody isn’t getting the message. Is it you? If you have important info to communicate, verify the recipient actually receives your message and understands what you’re trying to say. It may take more than one attempt to exchange information. There is also potential for muddied thinking and getting facts mixed up so double check your details. The necessary info is there, it’s not missing, but it could be in the wrong place. Like a form that has the right answers, but on the wrong lines.

Thursday, 8 of Cups: Release. Let it go! The hurt feelings and the what-if’s and the but-they-should-have-knowns. All of it. If it causes you pain or holds you back, step away. If you cannot yet do this literally, do it emotionally. Focus specifically and intentionally on what encourages you and makes you feel good and set aside the rest.

Focus on what supports you and leave behind what doesn't. Click To Tweet

Friday, The Empress Rx: Mama could use some love. If you’ve been busting tail looking after everybody else, today is a good day to look after YOU. A little play time, in particular, will replenish your giving well.

Saturday, 7 of Swords: Uh oh. Something is going down under the radar. Somebody lying? Maybe. If you have a difficult maneuver to pull off, you can today: provided you keep your mouth shut about it! There is just more going on than meets the eye. That’s not necessarily a problem, but it could be, depending. Don’t assume all the relevant facts are in the open.

Sunday, 4 of Pentacles: All is well. You are safe, and you made it through a tricky week just fine. It’s a good day to stay home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html and eat, if you have the option! Conserve your energy and resources and replenish yourself for the week coming up.

Overview/Advice, The Hermit: If you feel stressed out, frazzled or confused at any point this week, retreat! Go off by yourself for a bit and meditate. Or read. Or study whatever appeals to you. Or just sit, in nature and quiet. This will help SO MUCH, you have no idea. Don’t tell me you don’t have the time. Make the time. It will get you through any of the other difficulties with your equilibrium intact.

20160702_175753_HDRAffirmation: “My thoughts are in harmony with health.” This advice works to maximize physical health of course. But it also applies to any type of health–emotional, financial, relationship health, whatever.

 Whether you feel sick or well, focus on the wellness. Focus on improvements and appreciation for what’s going right. If you find little to appreciate, go more general as opposed to specifics, as it’s easier to do. And if you have trouble conjuring wellness thoughts on any particular topic, distract yourself with pleasant thoughts and activities unrelated. The point is to fill your mind with pleasant thoughts and your body with pleasant feelings.

Possible affirmations? I feel good. I like feeling good. I’m getting better all the time. I’m getting stronger every day. I love making progress. Most of the time, I feel good. It’s a good day. I appreciate my body. I appreciate my mind. I like me!

Colored Glasses – Tarot Flow Forecast, Apr 4 – 10, 2016

lucille-ball-loveyourselffirst

You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world. – Lucille Ball

You cannot give someone else what you do not have for yourself.  If you assume the worst of yourself, you’ll do the same of others, without even trying. You cannot IMAGINE they would want to be around you, despicable disaster that you consider yourself, so any lapse in connection has to be a rejection.

Not-so-nifty trick.

In fact, your experience is much more about how you feel about yourself than who anybody else is. Like when you accept the unacceptable in your relationships, in your job, in your life? While everyone is responsible for their own behavior, the acceptance bit is on you. Yes, we all have transitional times and I’m not judging you for them. But once you wake up? Realize what you’re doing. Don’t accept and internalize poison. Because it cripples you, emotionally.

To be able to give patience, kindness and faith TO others, you have to have accessh. Access is granted and grows, by cultivating those qualities in your own life, first in your relationship with yourself. You cannot give what you don’t have in abundance.

Whatever you want to share, you must first give to yourself. Click To Tweet

Tarot Forecast Apr 4 - 10 2016

Looking over the weekly flow of this forecast, I think of that old story of the blind men and the elephant. You know, where each of the blind men feels a different part of the elephant and thinks it’s something different? That one.

What you see is largely what you think you see. So decide going in, what you want your experience to be like and tailor your thinking to fit into that framing as much as possible. It’s like cleaning your glasses instead of leaving the (emotional) smudges on there, marring your perspective indefinitely. You decide, what color glasses you’re putting on this week.

Monday, Sacrifice – Three of Wands Rx: This is not going according to plan. Let go and let it happen according to…I dunno. Reality?

Tuesday, Material Harvest – Knight of Swords Rx: Lighten up on the worries and double down on the gratitude. It both feels better and will get you much, much further.

Wednesday, Accelerated Motion – Four of Swords: Don’t freak about the rate of change. Shifting is well (and perhaps suddenly) underway. There’s nothing more to do at present. So relax and let it happen.

Thursday, Transformation – The Fool Rx: The phrase that comes to mind here is, “You won’t make that mistake again.” Fair enough. Mildly ominous, but fair enough. Advice-wise, don’t keep doing what’s not working, dude. I’m hearing The Who in my head.

Friday, Suffering in Silence – Three of Pentacles: You may not see how it all fits together YET but I’m telling you, hardships endured are not without purpose. Even if you have to carve out that purpose yourself. Get what you can from it.

Saturday, Heart Chakra – Four of Cups: Potential to over-romanticize what you don’t have, either from past or future. Look to shift into the now, to whatever extent you can muster.

Sunday, Memories of Love – Hermit Rx: We are not who we are in isolation, or due a singular influence. Connect to those who have made a difference, either directly or energetically. Cut out those who hurt. Be discriminating on whom you connect with.

Overview/Advice, Discontent & Boredom Knight of Pentacles: Beware picking apart what’s basically good due to small (and irrelevant) details. Prioritize and weight your energy expenditures accordingly.

Affirmation: Change its name. Words matter. Listen to your words and wherever there is a topic you’d like to change, think of changing how you express it to better reflect your desired reality. Is it tossing a coat of paint on top of pain? Well, give it a go and see. Because I’d argue, you may want to change your glasses up.

How’s your vision looking lately?
