Self-Contained. Weekly Tarot Forecast, Oct 3 – 9, 2016

One of those things I learned from parenting: there is no bigger setup for failure than trying to control someone else’s life.

Even if your intentions are golden.

Even if they’re headed for a big, fat brick wall.

Even if you’re “right.”

Your responsibility–or more accurately, your RIGHT–to run any life begins and ends with you. Nobody else but you. Not your kid or your mother or your brother or your high school classmate.

Just you.

Everybody has their own perspective. Everybody has their own thoughts and feelings and priorities. Unless someone is looking for your input specifically and explicitly, why try to force it upon them?

That’s what comes to mind, looking at this forecast.

20160924_124743_hdr

The week begins in fits and starts. There’s a tendency to rescue others, or be more accurate, TRY to do so “for their own good.” There may be questions about how others are going to manage this or that and the feeling like you must involve yourself because, well…you are the only one who can step in and fix for them.

That’s not a good idea. But you know that, right?

You do nobody any favors when you look to be their strength. Instead, see the capacity in them, help remind them of their own strength and stand the Hell back out of their way while they find their own footing. Your job, and your only job, is to find your footing. Not your neighbors.

Eyes on your own paper, yo!

Audio Version of the Week’s Tarot Forecast


Monday, Two of Pentacles rx: Prioritize, baby! It ain’t all your job, everything in the world. Don’t fuss at yourself for what you don’t get done. Do what you can and let the rest go.

Tuesday, Eight of Cups rx: Feeling of claiming something doesn’t matter to you, but it does. How you feel is how you feel. Denial doesn’t change it. Don’t fool yourself! Be aware, anything that you react to more strongly emotionally than you would expect, that points you’ve tapped into a feeling vein that is attached to something else.

Wednesday, Page of Pentacles rx: Don’t spend more than you’re comfortable spending. And don’t try to take on extra tasks that are not yours. Take it easy, physically. Let others manage their own issues.

Thursday, Ten of Wands rx: Opportunity to drop or release obligations, ideas, details, issues, responsibilities that are NOT yours or that you’ve carried needlessly. Good day to let go of issues you’ve been holding onto without cause.

Friday, King of Cups rx: Be aware of potential of fluctuating emotional states. Sit with emotions for a while, put them to the scrutiny of reason before acting. Behave in an emotionally mature way and take your time…kind of testy feel, possible overreactions. Don’t take sloppy emotions in the wild personally, because it’s not.

Saturday, Ten of Pentacles: Fun! Good day for family activities, or friends that feel like family. Good money day. Check your mailbox! Maybe there’s a check. Lots to apprecite today.

Sunday, The Moon: Good possibility some of the info you run across today may not be entirely accurate. Doesn’t have to be a big deal, but there is a blurring of truth here. No drastic action. Good day for imaginative projects, or watching movies. Reading fiction, too.

Overview/Advice, Knight of Cups rx: The theme of this forecast is check your emotions and go slow in emotional matters. Knee jerk reactions are not your friend, so don’t be in a hurry to resolve. Take your time. Be easy and gentle. Pull back and soothe yourself when you are feeling emotional, to get centered and grounded before moving. Or opening your mouth!

Affirmation: We are each responsible for the thoughts we think. Sometimes we try to dazzle others with facts, facts, facts, reasons, reasons, reasons, emotional appeals, etc. It’s not your job or my job to convince anybody else. It’s our job to think our own thoughts and let others think their own thoughts. Think thoughts that keep you calm, centered and in a good, appreciative state. That’s ALL you have to do. You’ll connect with those whose vibes match you. However it works out, it’s okay. All you have to do is feel as good as you can and everything else goes smoothly.

Look to be self-contained this week, emotionally. Not that you don’t love beyond yourself or you don’t enjoy some awesome connections, too. That’s a good thing. But in terms of stability, happiness, your emotional state, making decisions and whatnot? Look within and don’t meddle. Self-contained is your keyword here.

Are you (usually or often) self-contained emotionally?

Firmly Rooted in YOU: Weekly Tarot, July 25 – 31

So, I just realized I didn’t finish and publish next week’s Tarot. AND I’m kind of shocked I didn’t realize it until today. ‘Cause, it’s Wednesday! But since I’ve written most of it and all, I’m gonna put it out there anywho…

Hope your week is going well, with or without Tarot. ♥

20160716_134543_HDR

As I look over this week as a whole, it strikes me how important remaining grounded and centered is. Like there is a whole lot of noise, in the background. Noise you don’t want to think about. Noise that doesn’t feel good to soak in. Noise that is potentially jarring, disruptive or yucky. But how much you tune in to the noise really dictates the quality of your experience.

So what do you do? You want to tune that noise out. Not try to outshout it (which just adds to the noise pollution).  You can only do this if you’re taking good care of yourself and breathing. The more calm, centered energy you can bring to the table, the easier your ride is and the more you’re part of the solution at the same time.

Stay rooted in who you are and what you want to be about. Nothing else matters and it helps the world as a whole when you add your good mojo into the collective pool.

Monday, Five of Pentacles: There is a feeling of lack, “not enoughness” out in the air. You don’t have to join in, you know. Look at what you DO have, what is going well, all the places you currently get support. It’s not your job to crack this nut for anybody else–as if you could, anyway. But if  you’re around a lot of this vibe, look compassionately and hold everyone else in a knowing they can improve how they feel themselves. Your only job is to be a good (and kind) example.

Tuesday, Knight of Cups: Realizing there is a good chance the day will be emotional, offer yourself an emotional setpoint to start with. As you get up or begin a new section of your daily activities, decide in advance you’d like to feel good and spend a minute generating a good feeling by thinking stuff that it makes you happy to think about. Hold yourself in this place for a bit and allow it to build momentum and then bam! You’re emotionally inoculated. How’s that for a prescription?

Wednesday, Seven of Pentacles: Admire your progress. Take note of it, because that amplifies it.

Thursday, Ace of Pentacles: A good day to do something with your hands, or go outside. Physical activity that feels good. Good food or comfortable couches also work, though. The point is, be present in and enjoy the feeling of your body.

Friday, The Hierophant rx: Don’t look to established wisdom to decide for you. Do a gut check and ask yourself, “What feels the best? What is really ‘me?'”

Saturday, The Tower rx: What happens is not as serious as it may have first appeared. Anything that appears to break down now is exposing information that was needed and is useful. Everything is really okay, so relax and know it’s working out.

Sunday, King of Cups rx: It would be easy to take one’s mood out on another. There is only one, sure-fire way to avoid trouble here. Make sure your mood is a good one, before you attempt to socialize.

Overview/Advice, Three of Pentacles: Plan for everything to work out. Expect that everything will be alright (because it will) without demanding the foreknowledge of HOW it will be alright. Don’t try to orchestrata how others should contribute or participate in the process. They will bring their own moves to the mix. But as you put yourself into that good-feeling place, you start to draw the right mix of people and circumstances to create with you.

Affirmation: I see myself enjoying absolute, continuing abundance. This one is hard to reach if you’re not feeling that way. But you can find non-monetary forms of abundance to start generating the FEELING of more abundance. You can look at a garden and appreciate the vegetables or diversity of flowers. You can appreciate the abundance of art or food or music or whatever it is that you enjoy. Those feelings are accessible to everyone who is not focusing on what they don’t have. And by doing this, you start aligning your energy with what you do want. That’s the only way to get it.

Much love.

Be The Light Or Look for It: Weekly Tarot Flow, June 19 – 25, 2016

I’ve been thinking about what creates a feeling of security.

We can say, “Oh, I’ll feel secure when I have this much in the bank, when I have this relationship, when this other thing is going okay for me.”

And we mean it. But that’s not true.

I know for a fact, there isn’t a magic event that creates a sense of security. Even those things we think will do it, don’t.

Because much like happiness, security isn’t bestowed by a specific set of outside events. That feeling is an internal state. An internal hunger can only be filled for a short time from outer circumstance. It’s not long before that hunger has to be fed again.

And that sense of safety is not something you can give somebody else. If you have some and want to share, the best you can do is be the lighthouse.

A lighthouse doesn’t go looking for lost ships to tell them which way to turn. It just stands and shines. Solid, unwavering and consistent. Those who are so inclined can certainly use the light to orient themselves.

This week? Be the lighthouse if you can. If not? Look for the light to lead your way. Either works.

20160618_161808_HDR

We’ve got a few majors this week, so I’m anticipating some punch to events, especially through midweek. We start out with a “wait and see, and keep your mouth shut doing it,” for the first couple of days. Midweek, just be sincere. I don’t even know what that Death card is about on Thursday, but keep yourself grounded. And the last couple of days into the weekend could be time for cleaning up, adjusting your attitude back to optimistic if you can, and self-care yourself silly this weekend. It will help keep your attitude on track!

Monday, Ace of Pentacles Rx: Keep an eye on spending, lest some of your cash get away from you. Lower energy day, so pace yourself. Not un-doable by any means. Just pace yourself. And if you’re in question about something that comes up? Hold off, don’t act for a couple of days. The answer will clarify before the end of the week.

Tuesday, Seven of Swords: Mouth? Shut. Good time to keep some of your observation to yourself. Let others underestimate what you know. Just do your thing and stay out of the fray today.

Wednesday, Knight of Cups: Act from your heart today, even if you feel a little sappy. Very important to act only in ways which you can feel good about. Compassion, kindness and empathy are great assets. Spread them everywhere!

Thursday, Death: Ouch. If you’ve got something that is wiped out, blows up? Realize it was to that point, that nothing could be done. Just clean up the mess, but know that what replaces it? It will be stronger, better. If you don’t feel this, well, I’m glad! But know others may be dealing with this flavor of energy. So tread lightly.

Friday, Magician Rx: Control what you can and let go of what you can’t. You’ll see some of both. It’s okay. All things work out in due time.

Saturday, Wheel Rx: Look for encouragement in small accomplishments, without expecting everything will necessarily be to your liking, at least just quite yet. Lucky breaks are on the horizon, but not quite here yet.

Sunday, King of Cups: Emotionally replenishing day on order! Eat well, drink a little if you like, and spend time doing whatever speaks to your heart–preferrably with people who also speak to your heart.

Overview/Advice, Six of Pentacles Rx: Give others a chance to figure out their own problems. You’re not doing favors by stepping in before you’re asked. Focus your energy this week on yourself and what you need.

Affirmation, Four of Wands: Celebrate the good. There is always some, and it’s always worth celebrating. And from this celebration, your sense of security and abundance grows. This is one, very important way you can be the light. ♥

Tangled Yarn – Tarot Forecast, Apr 18 – 24

My radar has been dinging off the hook lately. Overdrive! There is a lot of stress and angst out in the wild right now. I know, because I’m feeling it. I’m talking to people who are feeling it.

Folks are overwhelmed, scared, mad and otherwise wound the Hell up. Bombshells are dropping left and right, and many folks are not at all sure what steps to take next. It feels like things have been going SO FAST and there is a sense in the collective of just being rattled at a little shell shocked.

Lots of lives have lots of tangles right now.

Well, if this is you, pay heed. My astrologer friends have been talking about retrograde season coming into swing. And while I am often frustrated by the slow-downs and delays and otherwise frustrating aspects of retrogrades, right now? Not so much.

There are a lot of knots to untangle in the yarn of life and the only way to do it is to slow down, go back and review. It will all get sorted but one tiny section at a time.

This energy is coming into swing now, so you may have already felt the slow down. If you haven’t yet, heads up.

Tarot Forecast Apr 18 - 24 2016

The tone overall next week is emotional, with physical, real-world implications of how you express that emotion built in. If you’re feeling stressed, lean into self care. It helps. Understand that knots may take time to untangle and the Universal energy flow will be supporting this activity now. So don’t freak out about the size of your tangles, just pick up an end and start the process.

Monday, Sacrifice – King of Pentacles: Be willing to spend on what (or who) matters to you. Think in terms of investment, not necessarily expenditure. And by “spend,” we could be talking cash, sure. But we could also be talking time, attention, patience, what have you. Many times, we put a LOT of energy in what we don’t want: worry, fear, obsessions, anger, angst, what have you. That leaves us in a survival-we-hope mindset and emotional state. And it sucks! In all of that, you’re intensifying your experience of what you don’t want. You’re investing your life force in it. Why? When clean up is required (and it probably will be this week), focus on WHERE YOU’RE GOING with it! A lot of the same action. But much, much different vibe during the execution. Look forward, eyes fixed on where you want to be.

[bctt tweet=”Invest in getting what you want, not avoiding what you don’t. #OnMyRadar” username=”goddess_dix”]

Tuesday, Material Harvest – Ace of Pentacles: Another nudge to invest. I’d specifically look at investments that are supportive of making money, now or later, or that support you physically. We’re in the realm of real-world today, tangible and physical. Good potential for what’s started now to pay off well coming up.

Wednesday, Spiritual Union – Knight of Cups Rx: Oh all the feelings! Back and forth, to and fro. This speaks moodiness in personal relationships. Not necessarily bad moods, though. So if you like the mood, great! Enjoy it. Appreciate it in the moment it’s there. But if you don’t like it, don’t stress. It’s likely to be short lived. Ride the waves like a surfer dude (or dudette). Self-care for the win.

Thursday, Firm Foundation – Seven of Cups: Potential to identify entrenched false assumptions. Question what you assume here and look for supporting evidence of what you feel you “know” because there may be some misunderstood or misrepresented conclusions in the mix. Base your actions on what you KNOW, not what you assume or suspect and you’ll be good.

Friday, Rejoice in Celebration  – Ace of Swords Rx: Look for opportunity to get out of your head and not overthink things today.  Have a little (distracting) fun with friends! Full Moon in Scorpio – great for massive, deep release.

Saturday, Harmony – Seven of Wands Rx: It’s a get-along day. Definitely a time to reserve energy and choose battles wisely. Sure, you can go against the crowd, but only do so with a POINT. Because not everybody needs to be you or see the world as you see it. That doesn’t matter. If it’s not so important? Eh. Get over it (and yourself) and save the fights for stuff that matters.

Sunday, Emotional Loss – Eight of Cups Rx: There is a hint of a sting here–sorry!–which looks to be from old business, something you did not completely release yet emotionally. What you thought you were over but you’re not quite may come to visit.  This doesn’t strike me as super-intense. The trick here is allowing yourself to feel whatever it is with acceptance. Let it come to you, feel it and let it wash away. Feel and release. And afterwards? Baths or showers help a lot to wash it right off…

Overview/Advice, Material & Spiritual Prosperity – Four of Cups Rx: Be ready to bump yourself out of a rut and try something new. At the same time, realize general discontent isn’t great for prosperity (in any sense of the word “prosperity”). Instead, take discomfort as a helpful nudge to make changes. Appreciating what you’ve got and building on gratitude IS great for prosperity, however.  So bear this in mind, throughout the week and every time you can, look to reorient your outlook to one of appreciation. It will both improve your results and lighten the burden at the same time. Win/win, friends.

Affirmation: Lilac – Strengthen your Faith. Fear closes down our vibration and locks us up tight. Faith and courage opens up our energy and makes us more magnetic. Also? Lilac is a lovely color (and smell). It’s also a great plant for protection and romance. Strengthen your faith this week–start by reflecting on all the times faith and love have come through for you. Hand your worries over to your spirits and let them sort it out. It’s a very, very freeing experience.

Are you feeling tangled? How do you manage it?

Flavors of Love (for Heart-Day Haters) / Hanged Man, 2 Pentacles Rx, Knight of Cups

Hanged Man 2 Pentacles Knight Cups
I wanted to give you all something special in the dailies for Valentine’s Day—and please hear me out if you find it a wretched holiday. I get it. People hate a reminder, of what it feels like they do not have. So I took that into account when pulling cards.

This mini-spread-on-the-spot is (left to right), the love we have, the love we want, and how to get it.

Hanged Man, as the love we have: Each of us no doubt has some “invisible love” in our daily lives. This is affection we don’t have to seek or to earn. We have family, we have friends, we have kitty cats or dogs or whomever, the souls who show up time and time again somewhere or other in our lives and act in a loving way. We have the universal, spiritual love of our fellow human beings, or the divine if your belief system is so inclined to acknowledge such a current. This is the love we may not notice, tears of strangers upon hearing of another’s pain. We may discount this type as meaningless since it isn’t what we’re looking for. But think of how much the world would suck if this love didn’t exist! And remember not only how much of this you have, but how much you give. It’s worthwhile. Acknowledging it directly amps up the vibration of love in your life overall, makes the world a better place and certainly cannot do anything but good. You can easily add self-love into this category.

Don’t you feel just a little better already?

Reversed Two of Pentacles, as the love we want: We don’t want to have to worry…no hiding parts of the self. We look for comfort that we are “okay” on the days we feel anything but. We look into another’s eyes for confirmation of our worth when we are not so convinced ourselves. We want promises and guarantees and someone with whom to share our load. We want to exhale! The trick about this love it cannot ever be complete. We can get genuine promises, but there are never valid guarantees between mortals. People can die without our permission. We may find those who accept and value us as we are, who may share our load, but they cannot carry the entirety of our self-esteem. They can only support us as we seek to more fully treasure ourselves. Self-worth is an inside job.

It’s true, damnit!

Knight of Cups, as how to get it: Putting aside the imagery of this young Casanova wannabe, he’s onto something. The Knight of Cups drinks fully and completely of every moment. He allows himself (and okay, his date) to become vulnerable in doing so. To open yourself up to love, you have to put yourself at risk for pain! Communicating affection opens up the possibility of rejection. Allowing someone in means you could hurt–perhaps a lot–when they are no longer there. It’s the great paradox of the heart: you cannot have love if you’re not willing to risk losing it. The fact that it’s something given freely (and with risk), lasting however long it does, is part of what makes it so incredibly precious.

FEEL the love in your life that you don’t have to seek, and give of that brand of love freely. Manage your own self-image, but allow those willing to support you in seeing your true value to do so. But no matter what, absolutely, positively allow yourself the risk to feel. Without that, you miss not only the hardest, but also the most rewarding part of life. Isn’t feeling what being human is?

I love you guys! ♥

Lovingly Uncompromising. Weekly Tarot Forecast, Oct. 26 – Nov 1, 2016

Thor the Warrior Kitten just has a knack for finding the center of action. 

I really hope y’all are not getting sick of kitten pictures with the weekly cards. He’s not a seasoned enough reader to help much yet, but his heart is in it.

And the heart is totally the star of the show next week. So there you go!

IMG_4536

You now that space in time where you know in your heart something you really want to do, something that is important and meaningful to you but it’s scary? It’s like…putting yourself out there, naked. Not your image. Not your mirage. But YOU, the real you?

It could be something little or something big, from anyone else’s perspective. But it’s a big deal to you, it lives in your soul, a dream that’s itching to break free from the world of ideas into the world of manifest reality.

Maybe you wonder…What if everybody laughed, and not in a good way? What if I fail? What if my closely held dream turned to dust instead of reality? What would I hold onto then?

It won’t always work out. But reaching out in the direction of your heart? Never, ever a mistake.

We’ve got several Major Arcana on deck this week and a notable preponderance of Wands – so action is favored with the understanding that action will have lasting impact. You ready?

Tarot_8_StrengthMonday, Just Breathe, Strength: The topical card of “Just Breathe” suggests anxiety but better, a way to address it. Few actions ground better than breathing. And to pair it with the Strength card is a perfect match. One wonderful thing about the Strength card is that it’s universally accessible energy. You don’t have to have some kind of superhuman power to access it. The traditional version shows a woman taming a lion with little more than her infinite patience and purity of heart to keep her on track. If you’re feeling hit here, or have an obstacle to overcome–go right to the core of the matter with gentle, steady attention. Maintaining boundaries and especially not getting flustered will serve you well.

Tuesday, Change Your Focus, The World: What really counts? This is a big-picture day. Let small annoyances roll off your back and focus instead on your responsibility for the final outcome. You have the mastery you need at your disposal. Grownups earn paychecks. Be dependable. Happy Full Moon in Taurus–what are you releasing?

Wednesday, Trust, Ace of Wands: Let joy be your guide today. The project that gets you excited? The thought that quickens your pulse and gets your blood pumping? That is where you direct your feet. Take a specific, concrete action, however humble, in the direction of your passion. Trust yourself. (Ouch–Tarot is looking at me again!)

Thursday, Dreams Coming True/Solar Plexus Chakra, Knight of Cups: There is power to manifest in your emotional state. To work it, it’s vital to maintain appropriate boundaries. Your feelings may be intense, but in flux right now. Don’t allow anyone else to step on your dreams in this state, okay? You are in the process of figuring out your own feelings. Don’t let somebody else overrule your process here.

[bctt tweet=”Fiercely protect your dreams. #quotes”]

Friday, Love, Four of Wands: Activate the circle of love–contact your best buddies, spend time with your family of freaks, or otherwise invoke the sacred space of the heart today. I don’t care who or how you go about it. Be creative if you need to. But we’re looking to generate a combination of safe space and combine it with warm, loving kindness.

Saturday, Manifest, Seven of Wands: This has a very “march to your own drummer” kind of vibe. Take the risk if (and only if) it’s authentically YOU, your energy, your heart you’re putting out there. That’s a little scary, I know. Far scarier than being a copy of someone else. But this is how you create and hone your authentic life. This is how you make it real!

Sunday, Love Abounds, The Fool: Another heart-centered day. I’m loving all the love here! Approach all with a completely open mind. Look, listen, learn and soak up all that you can. Just do it from a loving space. That love is like a layer of armor; it will keep you safe today.

Overview/Advice, Rebuild, The Devil: Where have you over-indulged? What options have you taken off the table? Because that’s where you need to clean house this week. This card suggests letting go of something that’s been a stumbling block, a barrier between you and fulfilling your purpose. With a full moon in Taurus, I wouldn’t be surprised if some habits of overindulgence or plain, old-fashioned stubbornness are in focus. The Devil suggests an element of collusion, your personal cooperation in creating said situation. So let’s all put on our grown-up pants this week, look at the big picture and be the person we aspire to be. Authentic. Real. Passionate–but still responsible. If we’re going to stick to our guns, let’s be properly armed here. Only do what you can legitimately answer for, but be sure you do what you know, deep down, to be right. Remain steeped in love and the kindness will soften any rough edges.

Affirmation: Magenta – Connect to Your Deepest Inner Knowing. That’s a pretty good, all purpose affirmation. But the second part is implied here, filled in by the rest of the forecast. ACT on your deepest inner knowing. What good is having a connection to it if you don’t do anything with the connection?

I cannot promise you things will always turn out pretty. Believe me, I’m acutely aware of that fact. Life has plenty of pain. I think of pain as a sort of currency, the price we pay for loving, for learning, just for giving a damn, you know? I refuse to waste pain, so I end up having bought a lot for mine. And if the price of chasing my dreams is a skinned ego? Well, I’m ready and willing to pay it.

Because I’m not willing to leave this material plane not having lived every bit of life coming to me!

How about you? Do you have a dream you’re ready to get underway?
