Emotions are Loud: Weekly Flow Tarot, May 11 – 17

Weekly Tarot

I’m sad right now. My cat is sick, and I know she’s not going to be with us a whole lot longer.

This is making the time with her right now both very, very precious, and very, very hard. Emotions are kinda loud, right now.

That’s what this coming week looks like…loud. Emotionally loud. Downtime, a clear head, patience and lots of loving energy are all balm for the soul this week. I am not directly advising comfort food. But I wouldn’t call you out on it, either.

P.S. Happy Mother’s Day!

Monday – Justice, Reversed: In my head is a 10-year-old, protesting, “It’s not faaaaaaiiiiiiiiiir. Not. Fair.” If you hear these words in your head, step back. Stay off the judges bench and out of the jury box. Your job is to be the best self you can manage. That’s where your power is.

Tuesday – The Hermit: Take a deep breath and withdraw from the chatter, chatter, chatter all around you, as well as in your head. Center, to find some peace, perspective and clarity.

Wednesday – Ace of Cups: What moves you? What touches your heart powerfully? You may run into some of that. Sport tissue, just in case.

Thursday – King of Wands: Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it. Take care of business. High productivity potential if you keep your heart in what you’re doing. Creativity also favored.

Friday – Three of Swords: Ouch. Well, Hell. Feel your feels, whatever they are. That’s how you let go of those feels, man. Because nobody wants those feels to be clogging up the works.

Saturday – Seven of Pentacles:  “Long-range” is all the rage. Imagine if how you’re responding to your life today became a template for how it would be for a long time to come. Would that change anything? Today would be a good day to pretend you’re making a template.

Sunday- Judgement Reversed: I don’t care who’s fault it is. We are where we are, with what we’ve got. Focus on priorities and leave the rest to sort out in due time.

Overview/Advice – Page of Wands Reversed: Not a week to be hasty, always living in next week. Not a good time to act on impulse or going through the motions, either one. Stay present and on an even keel to fare best.

Affirmation: I love my body. You know that old song that goes, “If you can’t be with the one that you love, baby, love the one you’re with”? Not quite as cynical as that, but I’m saying, “love the one you’re with.” Wherever you’re at, whomever you’re with, carry yourself with as much love and goodwill as possible. Your body is not perfect? Love it anyway. It’s probably weathered you through a lot if you’ve gotten this far. Love the people who are in your life to the best of your ability. Be as loving as you can to the strangers you meet–you never know what a difference your kindness and goodwill may make to someone who needs it.

Are the emotions loud now in your world?

  

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?

Altered Plans: Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Dec 8–14, 2014

Tarot Flow Dec 8 -14

Do you set intentions for full moons? I do, most of the time. For the recent Gemini moon, I wanted to release what doesn’t serve. This intention fits into my life on multiple levels and to be frank, I don’t have the time or energy for what doesn’t feed either me personally or my goals on a larger scale. Not in the budget anymore!

This week’s Tarot flow forecast? It brings that intention to mind. This is a very practically-oriented spread, with the final goal being to take action. Move! I like that. We’ve got a mix of Majors, Swords (thoughts) and Pentacles (practicalities), with that Ace of Wands (action) as “goal” for good measure. Overall, I expect it to be an productive and well-rounded week.

Monday, Positive Influences – Justice: Balance, fairness and weighing out the concerns of all parties is the way to begin the week. This will set the stage well for the days to come. This would be an excellent time to clarify goals.

Tuesday, Immediate Future – Ace of Swords: You do NOT need the long term figured out right now. But you do need at least one clear, rational strategy to build from, right now. You’re not looking to ride it into next year or next month or even next week, necessarily. You want an idea that takes care of what’s needed in the moment, today and tomorrow. For now is what we’re shooting for.

Wednesday, Relationship – Temperance reversed: I am expecting ongoing adjustments in relationships. Not all knowledge and experience is fully integrated, but hey. We’re working on it! Consider both practical, psychological issues as well as energetic issues. It may seem the two are unrelated, but in reality they are two sides of the same coin.

Thursday, Advice – Knight of Pentacles: The Knight of Pentacles can be a bit OCD, and he’s definitely one to review and categorize. He’s also a very hard worker and sometimes, a bit too serious. His appearance as advice would suggest going over the details, double-checking your facts and plan it out. Things may not go according to your plans, mind you. Truth is, some will not. But you’re still better off here not leaving everything up to chance and doing what you can to make sure all is where you want it to be.

Friday, Hobbies and Talents – Nine of Swords: Anxiety with a side order of guilt is getting in the way of self-expression. Are you self conscious about how others perceive your efforts? Are you prone to feeling guilty for resources you devote to yourself? Because that’s what this looks like to me. Don’t use hobbies to cut yourself off from the rest of the world, either; there is often a sense of isolation that accompanies this card. Also? Getting enough sleep boosts your creativity.

Saturday, Friendship – Ten of Pentacles reversed: Friend serve very important and valuable functions, but do not single-handedly take care of all your emotional needs. Because you know what? That is totally an inside job!

Sunday, Goal – Ace of Wands: The goal here, to begin creation! It’s like the entire week is a buildup to manifesting, setting the stage. Monday, we get grounded and clear on goals. Tuesday, we enact a short-term plan. Wednesday, we deal with personnel issues. Thursday is reviewing the details. Friday is getting over ourselves. Saturday is appreciating the support of loved ones, understanding there are limitations to what you can withdraw from that bank. And Sunday, the spark has been lit and the process is underway.

Overview/Advice – Three of Pentacles reversed: Plan but don’t rigidly adhere to the plans if another, more apt opportunity arises. You know the phrase, “Rules are meant to be broken?” It comes with the caveat that the rules must first be understood. Well, this week, it’s “plans are meant to be changed,” but with the rider than you still need to have plans because they put you in the right place at the right time to get the updated schedule.

Affirmation, Claircognizance– Archangel Uriel: “Pay attention the the thoughts and ideas that come to you, as they are answered prayers.” Uriel’s name means “light of God” or “fire of God” in Hebrew, and he’s known as the angel of wisdom and repentance. We can make use of both this week. Ideas will come to make wanted changes, but in order to do so, we have to be willing to alter course. The opportunities will appear, that’s the Universe’s job. The choices to act on them, ours. If I want to release what doesn’t serve, I have to be willing to actually let go, and focus my own attention on what does.

Shortly after I set my intention, I ended up reading The Four Agreements. In man ways, it was a rather direct answer to my intention. But it’s up to me to act on that knowledge. It wasn’t really in the form I expected, you know? But this week, it’s a lot like that. You’ll get some answers, options for fulfilling your plans. They just won’t show up in the guise you were expecting.

How’s your week looking?

End of the Fight? Weekend Flow, June 21-22

Tarot June 21-22

Damn! This weekend draw has all the characteristics of resolving a long-waged dispute. Whoa.

Saturday, Resolution – Justice: Cut to the chase. Take your lumps gracefully, and hand out whatever blame there is to be handed out just as gracefully. Justice is always (to me) an even-handed, dispassionate recounting of events. Credit where credit is due all around is the way to solve issues today.

Sunday, Partner – Two of Swords: You make choices, your partner makes choices. Today is one of weighing matters out.

Overview/Advice – The Chariot: Focus on what matters. You may not be able to budget for everything you’d like, but know what is at the top of your shopping list. Prioritize.

Affirmation: My emotions are vibrational interpreters. How you FEEL tells you what’s going on. Your gut won’t steer you wrong. So why do we argue so damn much with it? Keep looking for the next best step up.

Does this weekend’s forecast fit with your life? (You don’t have to say how, I’m just curious…)

02/26/14: Injustice as Tuition / Justice Rx

jusitce rx

Ouch! Justice reversed as “what you can’t change” isn’t mincing a damn word here.

Situations arise that are not fair, nor can you make it fair. If you are crying and stomping about bemoaning the great unfairness, however, you miss the chance for taking the one thing you can extract from every single experience: wisdom.

Consider unfairness the price of tuition. It’s up to you to make sure you get full value for everything spent.

You seeing some injustice?

02/17/13: Not Fair! / Justice Rx

Well, Hell! Reversed Justice looks like kind of a…scratchy lesson, don’t you think?

I’d expect to see some kind of unfairness today, a lack of balance. Maybe you lose your equalibrium, or maybe you see somebody teetering, about to take a dive into the deep end.

But don’t just be outraged. Know there’s a gem hidden within! If you can extract that prize and understand the lesson lurking, you may be able recover the situation. At the very least, understanding what’s up means you get something for your trouble. Lessons learned do not run on autoplay. That is motivation in and of itself.

Can you feel this dynamic? Gosh, I hope not!
