Be A Zen Cat: Tarot Forecast, Dec 26 – Jan 1

I nickname my neighbors. The ones I don’t know by name, I make up functional names for them. We’ve had Donut Girl and Mr. Weirdo and Captain Redneck.

Zen Boy is one of my favorites among the crop of current neighborhood kids. I’ve probably told you about him before.

He’s the one who was gathering acorns one day–singing odes of appreciation to the acorns as he dropped them in his bucket. He’d admire each as he was picking it up, singing a stream-of-consciousness serenade about how the acorn was, “so nice and round and broooooowwwwwn.” He wasn’t worrying about the other two kids picking up acorns, who was getting the most or the best or whether or not they approved of his singing. He wasn’t even noting the lady drinking coffee on her porch nearby, grinning all over to herself over the acorn serenade.

How freakin’ in-the-moment is that?

I’ve seen him again and again, and his countenance and energy tone is always the same. He’s right there, in the moment and not bothered by what other people are acting out.

Angry Man is another neighbor–one I haven’t enjoyed as much as Zen boy. His energy is always stormy, and he’s usually visibly (or audibly) displeased with whatever is before him at the moment. Also? He NEVER gets to leave anywhere on time and is sick and tired of all the Goddamn fighting in that house!

I was more than a little taken aback one day when I heard him fussing at Zen Boy…Angry Man must be his dad!

Whaaaaa?!? I would not have seen that coming.

And throughout the whole exchange, this kid did not waver an iota from his Zen. His energy was clear as a bell. There wasn’t even a blip of waver. He was listening to his Dad’s rant, yes, and responding to the conversation, absolutely. And  I could feel him the whole time, just KNOWING the drama was unnecessary, knowing it wasn’t about him. Not judging or bothering about the fact there was drama. Just not getting it on him. He stayed right smack on his center the whole time.

And suddenly, I had a whole new appreciation for Angry Man.

Because maybe it takes an Angry Man to help call forth a Zen Boy. You know? I’ve always said,  people get exactly the right parents, and here it was, in living color before me.

Maybe there is a place for allowing and appreciating in every bit of humanity.

And this week? Your ride is all about what you CHOOSE to appreciate.

What you appreciate IS a choice. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

With a rainstorm, some people seem flowers on the way and others see mud. I’m choosing the flowers, thank you very much. And this coming week is a lot like that. You can holler about the rain, or you can get excited about the flowers. You can get mad at the people who are dripping drama to and fro (and join them), or you can wish them well while you go about staying true to your own center.

I think we all know where this is going. Har! So let’s get to the forecast bit.

Be A Zen Cat: Tarot Forecast, Dec 26 - Jan 1 1

Monday, The Lovers: Cue harps and angels and all that jazz. Expect a harmonious day, so enjoy it! Do understand, though,  it’s harmonious with what YOU are putting out. that if you get out of bed cranky and walk around cranky, you’ll meet a lot of cranky. If you don’t like what you’re getting, take a look in the mirror!

Tuesday, Hermit rx: Connect with others, don’t isolate. Don’t let anxiety get the better of you. Speak out if something is on your mind, don’t wall up emotionally. Won’t help. Talking to others can help dissipate misunderstandings or confusion. A lot may need that sort of assistance today.

Wednesday, Judgement: Take a step back and assess, assess, assess. Without laying blame, by the way. Assess projects, creative work, whatever is on your mind, just assess. It will be easy to tease out what comes from where, what adjustments to make so long as the process is about finding info, not laying blame. So whatever you’re not happy with becomes a fact-finding mission and with this approach, you’ll feel movement.

Thursday, Page of Pentacles: Day for detail work. Seeing stacks and stacks of papers, checklists, bookmarks, etc. Methodical, by-the-numbers work goes well. Doublecheck plans, and plow through the little things and it will add up quickly. News may arrive, as Pages often announce the news. Nothing to do about it, just be aware messages may come.

Friday, Five of Pentacles rx: A possibility of some pity parties going down. Not so hard to counteract. The pity parties are not about circumstances, they are about how you feel about those circumstances. What touches your heart may bother you more than it bothers the individuals in the middle of it, as our expectations are different. This is all subjective. What you feel is your own, but remember, perspective is everything! If you catch yourself feeling a little sorry for yourself, try to catch it before it gains a lot of steam, and counterbalance it with something you appreciate to change it up quick!

Saturday, The Fool Rx: The phrase comes to mind, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” This day has the potential for blurting and impulsive behavior. You can wait until the end of a conversation or when you feel you are in control before speaking. Never act from a place where you feel anxious or upset. Whatever behavior undertaken from that vibration is not going to turn out the way you want. So get stable and grounded, plug in, and wait until it doesn’t feel like such an emotional emergency before moving.

Sunday, Temperance rx: In keeping with the general vibe for the whole week, there is info to be integrated and stuff to figure out. But it’s not something to work on consciously. You just have to NOT be Chicken Little to settle your life down. Be calm and chill. Give yourself the empty space, the non-effort (which takes effort for some, but it’s practice). That will make the difference.

Overview/Advice, Knight of Pentacles: Map it out and take your time. One step, one step, one step at a time.

Affirmation: Romance. In the context of the coming week, understand the harmony of what you put out is what you get back. Very highlighted throughout the week. You will get what resonates with the energy you vibrate. Doesn’t mean what you like, while it might be. But you cannot get much outside your belief system. You have to believe it before you can get it, you know? The Romance here is a reminder that you get what you put out. Not to be guilt trippy. Just look to shift the energy around anything that doesn’t feel good. It doesn’t matter where frustrations come from. Just look to feel better, PERIOD. That’s it. This shifts your energy and what you’re feeling syncs with what you’ve been thinking. Just look to shift your feelings a little bit better, a little bit better. “Romance” what you like in your life and appreciate it. Just like a smitten, new couple, who intensely focus on each other, drinking everything in from the connection? They’re specifically looking for the good stuff, hopeful it will work out, wanting to see the best

Approach your life like that! Romance yourself. Romance your life. Look for good things everywhere you can and your life will improve.

Romance yourself. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Be A Zen Cat: Tarot Forecast, Dec 26 - Jan 1 2

One Zen Cat (aka Thor the Warrior Kitten)

Are you Zen?

This week’s forecast features the Tarot Nova mini deck and Angel Answer cards.

p.s. I’m still running the 2017 Year-Ahead Zodiac Special…for now.

Good feedback on the audio files–people are telling me it feels very “real time” and brings a sense of immediacy to the reading experience. Any orders now won’t be undertaken until after Christmas, just FYI. I’ve got presents to wrap and turkey to cook, man.

Leveling Up: Weekly Tarot Forecast, Feb 29 – Mar 6

“It’s intense. Not bad necessarily, but very intense.”

She had that deer-in-the-headlights,-what-the-Hell-is-that-supposed-to-mean look.

I was talking about the upcoming eclipses, and how it’s felt since the recent full moon in Virgo.

I wasn’t trying to be scary but, you know. People would prefer sunshine and daffodils.

“Well, you know all these changes you’re going through recently? It’s really hard right now. Stressful. The changes are not bad–they’re for the better in the long run. All of them are good. The work you’re doing now is very hard, but it’s going to a good ends. And it all counts! Next week, you’ll have made a lot of progress from this week.”

She agreed.

“And I’m in the same boat, with my projects. It’s intense. Overwhelming sometimes. But with a purpose and a payoff.”

And this, my friends, is what this next week is about. Might not like the feelings now–most of us might be more than a little tired. But the point of all that effort is firmly intact. And it’s worth it.

We’re in the process of leveling up. That means the stakes are a little higher, and the work is a little harder. But the rewards are also a little sweeter. Like it or not, matters not to the Universe. So do your best and insulate yourself.

Oh, and one more thing? With Eclipse season upon us, what we’re doing now, what we’re working through has IMPACT. So…do your best to do your best, okay? Meaning, don’t cash in your integrity for an apparently easy shortcut or gain.

Do the RIGHT THING, whether you think you’re being watched or not. It always matters, but now? It matters even more than usual. Pressure is high and many situations will intensify to the crux. You want to be above reproach if anything happens to come crashing down in your lap, you know?

March 8 is the first Eclipse and it’s gonna be a doozy. Don’t say I didn’t give y’all a heads up on this…

20160213_171944_HDR

Ah, the cards. I’m seeing evidence of the incoming eclipse and general, highly sensitized astro-weather out there, in next week. I am expecting emotions to be veritably crackling and largely visceral, especially the first part of the week. Thursday through the weekend looks much easier to manage. But Tuesday and Wednesday are high alert days, just so you know.

Monday, Judgement Reversed: Who do you most often blame when something goes wrong? Other people? Yourself? Default patterns are usually less-than-useful. Potential of missing important information due being wedded to a particular narrative. Keep an open mind in anticipation that the story may be quite a bit different than you initially thought.

Whose fault is much less relevant than, 'what now?' #tarot Click To Tweet

Tuesday, Three of Swords: Ow! Sorry, there’s no pretty spin for the Three of Swords. This card shows a loss, and the hurting over that loss. Now, since this is a public forecast, I can certainly wish this feeling is not personal to you! But there’s a good chance, it’s going to be personal to somebody–including maybe somebody you interact with. So step lightly with compassion, and carry tissue. Kindness is the order of the day.

Wednesday, Ten of Swords: Too much! The Ten of Swords shows up when we feel overwhelmed, betrayed, tapped out and back-stabbed. It’s the rock-bottom feeling we’re talking. Although there is a smidge of a bright side with this card–no place to go but up. Schedule extra downtime today and make space in your schedule for self-care. Time to tend to your wounds and get yourself a good night’s sleep. Everything will unquestionably look better in the morning.

Thursday, Six of Wands: Yes! A rebound! Take a deep breath, put on your ass-kicking shoes, and go forth to face the challenges of the day. You have the capacity to conquer them.

Friday, Queen of Wands: Focus and determination in equal mix with passion is the recipe for success. Not bull-headedness…unless it’s something you really need to be bull-headed about. Some issues are worth digging your heels in over, you know? And as always with the Wands Royalty, be sure you’re not being a control-freak all over other people. Only control-freak yourself, man.

Saturday, Page of Cups: A little case of the feels, today. Be kind, and spend time with others who are kind. Loving energy always heals but today? Loving kindness is super-charged. Take advantage.

Sunday, Ace of Swords Reversed: Plans probably won’t go as planned. This is not a huge problem–we’re talking loose plans or early stages here. So lean into your power of flexibility to make up any lost ground. You can save the day with quick thinking.

Overview/Advice – The Magician: To make this week work, attending to your thought processes and focusing on what you DO have control over will be paramount. I find the Magician a very encouraging card in this position, because he reassures me, people will indeed have the magic powers they need to navigate any difficulty successfully. Remember, the gift of the Magician is in channeling the energy sources available to him. He takes the same things everybody else may have it hand, but uses them intentionally. So throughout the week, as you’re allocating your energy, your thoughts, your actions, do so deliberately and intentionally. This will help you sail over any rough patches and come out the other side feeling accomplished.

Affirmation: I am beautiful and everybody loves me. This affirmation always cracks me up. On a surface level, it’s so obviously untrue. I know there are people who do not love me! However, I also know people frequently underestimate how many people do love them. Here’s what I’m thinking, it terms of advice: see your own beauty. Assess yourself as kindly as you would a dear, beloved friend. Only allow people into your inner circle who DO actually love you. I am considering this affirmation not so much a reflection of some sort of objective reality as advice, for creating the reality you would like. Act in accordance with what you find beautiful in yourself. Only do those things in private that you would not be ashamed to have known publically. Only invite kind, loving and loyal people into your world. Don’t give the assholes a vote! You do this, and this affirmation can be true. You just have to decide to make it so.

How are you faring out there?

Solutions vs. Blame: Tarot Forecast, Nov. 16 – 22, 2015

“Wise people seek solutions; The ignorant only cast blame.” -Tao Te Ching

Thor the Warrior Kitten is not having any of what I’m serving this week. He looks like he’s laying blame, but I suspect his solution is for me to leave him alone.

Hurt feelings are on my mind this week. Who did what, who said what, who can be trusted and who cannot?  Maybe it’s leftover from the Scorpio new moon? I don’t know. But tender feelings and frustrations are on my radar.

I don’t dig the place that line of thinking can take me sometimes. Doesn’t mean I always catch myself before I go there, but I always feel kind of crummy about it once I’m there. Every human being alive has been wronged–and wronged others. Ugly side effect of imperfection. So why do we get all obsessive about one or the other side of that equation? The Guilt Trip Express just never arrives at a lovely destination.

If you find yourself hopping on the “how dare they” train, ask yourself, “Does it accomplish anything?” Because we have a finite amount of energy. I’d rather expend mine on moving forward than looking back.

Weekly Tarot Forecast Nov 16 - 22

Next week, it looks like we’ll have some opportunity to put such resolutions to the test. I’m seeing themes surrounding allies and enemies, blame and solutions.

Monday, Judgement Reversed: Who’s at fault? Don’t know. Don’t care. What matters today is fixing it. Take care of business and do what needs to be done. The laundry list of blame can be filled out another day if it’s even helpful at all. Priorities here are functional and pragmatic: damage control, moving forward, what comes next.

Tuesday, Ace of Wands: Do what you can accomplish on your own, even if it’s just a little start. It’s a move in the right direction. Creative spark can steer you toward some interesting solutions if you’re open to the possibilities.

Wednesday, Page of Swords: Be clear with your words to make sure your messages are heard. Say what you mean and all that. Boundaries are helpful. Do be aware of feelings–this guy can blurt at times. But still, don’t sacrifice the primary meaning by putting too many frills on the message. Kind, clear and matter-of-fact should work.

Thursday, Ten of Swords: Ouch. That’s all, just ouch…Okay. Deception can come to light. I’m getting this like overhearing what was supposed to be a candid comment and it’s upsetting, not consistent with your previous understanding.

Friday, Eight of Wands Reversed: Confusing day. Chaotic, mixed signals, crossed wires. Ground and regroup as required!

Saturday, The Lovers: Seek comfort in the arms of another! Or at least in the company of those in tune with YOU. And hey, if that’s a party of one, so be it!

Sunday, King of Cups Reversed: Keep emotional floodgates locked down, lest you overreact. Feelings are not right or wrong. They just are. But post-meltdown regret can be very real. Reign it in, or nap it out.

Overview/Advice, Strength: Okay, this is encouraging! It doesn’t take superhuman effort to stay on course this week. Just steady, guided pressure. You CAN do it. You merely need to remain fully present and aware. If you stay on top of yourself, the week will not get out of hand.

Affirmation: Don’t fall in love with ideas. The same would go for perceptions, stories, worldviews, ideology, hero status, victim status, and  miscellaneous convictions. Consider your “knowledge” a working theory and you’re on track. Be OPEN to what there is to see.

What’s Real: Love in the Present Moment

Excerpted from a reading (because I know more than the original recipient can use this tidbit):

Let go of your fears here. You know better than anybody, that sense of control over your loved ones’ well-being is an illusion. But what’s NOT an illusion is the love that happens in the present moment. That love, you can provide no matter what. That love is what makes life worth living. So focus on that. Focus on the love in the moment, and live that as fully as you possibly can.

Can you shift your focus to love, in the present moment?

Old-School Ethics – Weekly Tarot Forecast, Mar 23 – 29

Old-School Ethics - Weekly Tarot Forecast, Mar 23 - 29 3

So how has this eclispsey astro-weather been treating you? I’ve been feeling a heightened emotionality all around…the vibrational air seems literally saturated with emotion, both personally and in the group consciousness. But this one didn’t kick my ass in my personal sphere as much as some do. Thank goodness! I did pull out my moldavite necklace just in case though. I always wear moldavite around eclipses, so if I get blindsided with a smack, I can move on quickly…it’s helped so much with that.

Looking at the week ahead, I’m struck by the number of Major Arcana cards here. It has a punch! I’d also very much advise to make all decisions this week with an eye towards your core values, sustainability, and what you want for the long haul. It’s not a good time to be taking shortcuts of any type, nor cutting corners, fudging or lying. Those that don’t play it straight Monday may get a slap come the end of the week. By the weekend, you’ll likely see the wisdom of the old-school, do-it-the-right-way orientation.

Monday –  Temptation (The Devil): Make absolutely the same moves in private (nobody would ever know), that you would make standing upon a stage in the throes of a genuine “YouTube moment.” This approach is the best insurance, not only against future embarrassment, but also against darkening of the soul. You DO have a choice. Exercise it. It buys freedom.

Tuesday –  Power (Strength): Gentle, steady, and unshakable could be a great mantra today. You have what you need inside of you, so call upon it.

Wednesday –  Patience & Planning (Seven of Pentacles): Take your steps today with the long haul and delayed gratification in mind. The future has this sometimes inconvenient way of showing up one day. When it does, you’ll be glad you made the right choices along the way.

Thursday –  Rejoice in Celebration (Three of Cups) : Connect with your people and feel grateful for the good in your life. No matter what your life, there is always some good.

Friday –  Truth (Judgment): This is a balanced, unbiased accounting. It’s not about reward or punishment so much as objectivity and understanding. You may have opportunity to be glad about how you behaved earlier this week. Ha!

Saturday –  Positive Movement Forward (Eight of Pentacles): Seeing progress is always a relief. You may not be where you want to be. (So few of us are.) But it’s still very important—perhaps more important—to recognize and appreciate the milestones along the way in such circumstance.

Sunday –  Prosperity Begins (Ace of Pentacles): The seeds you’ve planted are preparing to sprout. Yay for sprouted seeds!

Advice/Overview –  Wisdom (The Hierophant): Go old-school. Do what you know is right this week, according to tradition, how you were raised, what you were taught by the teachers you honor and respect, following the advice of those who have gone before. This tried-and-true approach is what’s required.

Affirmation –  Plum, Overcome Your Challenges: Sometimes, doing the right thing is hard. Heck, sometimes even knowing the right thing is hard. And by “the right thing” I don’t mean the objectively single best decision in any given circumstance. I mean making the choice where your heart, your head and your spirit remain in alignment.

This is a week we’ll have hills to climb and distractions to overcome. There is a potential to get derailed. But if you stay on task and remember not only what you’re trying to do, but WHO YOU ARE and what you want to be about, you’re on course for making some headway. Stay true to yourself out there!

How’s your week looking?
