12/02/11: Processing Losses | 3 of Swords, Rev Knight Wands, Rev Chariot

20111127_151420 (550x311)

Seriously, Tarot?!? Again with the Three of Swords? Okay. No point arguing. Add in an inverted Knight of Wands and Chariot for good measure.

Let go and allow yourself permission to be sad, if that’s what you feel. Or feel relieved or happy or confused or whatever. Just don’t go denying there’s a cost to the clash. Don’t demand a solution to the sting, nor insist you must make instant progress "moving on."

Didn’t you realize, processing a loss IS progress?  It’s the work in question right now. Seeing what’s done as truly being done, and allowing yourself the grace of time to adjust, is what’s most needed.

Processing losses?

11/16/11: Keep on Riding | Knight of Wands, Three of Swords Reversed

“In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in the real world all rests on perseverance.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

knight-wands-three-swords-meaning

Today’s Tarot is the Knight of Wands (Air in Fire) and the reversed Three of Swords (Saturn in Libra). Life has pain. That’s part of the gig—we sometimes lose something dear to us. Unavoidable part of the human experience, you know? But you can lessen the sting by continuing to move forward.

So, if you lose an opportunity, if a relationship disintegrates, if an option you dearly wanted is moved out of your reach? Well…okay. This happens sometimes. But you’re not a goner yet! Maybe you’ll end up with a reasonable facsimile of what you wanted, or maybe not. But if you keep on going, with fire, determination and passion, you’ll definitely end up with something!

And isn’t that “something” better than the cold comfort you get crying over the cake you’re shoveling in your mouth, decrying the world as unkind? (Not that I would know anything about emotional eating. Har!) If you’ve got some sad, acknowledge your losses. Feel it, cry your tears and tidy the mess. But don’t camp out in the middle for the rest of your life. Do something else, damn it! It’s not the losses that makes a loser—it’s the giving up.

How do you react to suffering a loss?

11/02/11: Calling Outside Help | Rev Knight Wands, Rev King Pentacles, 6 Wands

“All of us, at certain moments of our lives, need to take advice and to receive help from other people.” Alexis Carrel

daily-tarot-forecast

Tarot gives us the Knight of Wands inverted (Air in Fire), King of Pentacles inverted (Fire in Earth) and the Six of Wands (Jupiter in Leo). You don’t have to fight your way through life. You don’t have to take care of everybody.  You don’t cross the river alone. Recognition, success, positive outcomes are granted through cooperative effort. Be listening for good creative ideas, assistance getting the job done, and needed resources available to you now.

What you need is out there for you. You just have to be tuned in to recognize it.

Do you find a lot of support from others?

Everyday Tarot, 07/22/11: Doublecheck before Hotfooting it | Rev. Knight of Wands

knight-wands-reversed“I’m surprised you’re still in business,” the email said. It was the latest in a series of unpleasant emails. I was looking for final payment for web service, and he was looking for final shots.

It was absolutely all I could do, not to grab the bait. Good God, I wanted to snark back! I started to, several times. But then, I stopped myself and a deep breath.

What do you hope to accomplish here, Dixie?”  I mean, really, what could I expect? That he’d have a sudden Come-to-Jesus moment because of my magical retort?  He knew he was being an ass. He was going out of his way to be an ass. So, I could either grant him the buzz of noticeably disturbing me with his assiness, or I could email-filter that irritation right out of my reality. I don’t have to tell you which I picked.

vintage_hotfoot_1Today’s Tarot forecast is the Knight of Wands or “Prince of the Chariot of Fire,” associated with Air in Fire. He’s inverted, naturally, because we’re all so damn hot to trot about moving forward now—he’s got to show up as the royal party pooper, suggesting we’ll have to keep ourselves under control.

Knights have a tendency to get carried away anyhow—with ideas and ideals. They are enthusiastic, but not necessarily experienced, so we are probably looking at a raw, edgy quality surrounding circumstance. It’s bold, vivid and in full color, but reversed, it may be unfinished or incomplete.

The inverted Knight of Wands cautions us to make sure the direction we’re charging is aligned with the intended destination. The strong, sudden urge to just do is not sufficient indication of helpful, productive action. If your compass agrees, carry on! Otherwise, restrain yourself, Sparky. Don’t want to burn down the wrong house.

You have the urge to run?

Everyday Tarot, 06/21/11: Knight of Wands, Forging Steel

knight-wands-daily-tarot-forecastWe have a Cardinal Grand Cross at the moment and a lot of people are feeling it. I am! Grand Crosses mean stress and friction and in Cardinal, expect issues surrounding control and identity to be front and center.

Today’s Tarot forecast is the Knight of Wands or “Prince of the Chariot of Fire,” associated with Air in Fire—passion overtakes reason. I often see this card appear when someone is struggling with what to do, especially under a sense of pressure, where one is feeling driven to do something. This is an active, driven force. This knight MOVES! He’s off to create, to work, to do the heavy lifting. This can be good—things are getting done—but can also create problems, when decisions are rash or actions are taken hastily.

But don’t assume this vibe is bad. I think of this kind of energy very much as “trial by fire”—where character is forged, decisions are made and futures, created.

When you see the Knight of Wands, don’t just bolt in the whatever direction you are facing. Reign in impulsiveness, as that’s this Knight’s weakness, and make sure your (considerable) force is aimed where you actually want to go.

Questions to consider:

  • What’s my objective? What do I hope to accomplish?
  • Does this action take me closer?
  • Am I missing something important to consider in the midst of this drive to move?

If you can check your map before you take off like a Knight riding into battle here, this energy can be an intensely productive (if, at times, intensely uncomfortable) force.  Yes, it’s a lot of heat. But you know, fire forges steel.

Are you feeling this now?
