Three of Wands Rx: Making Good of What You Get

I grew up knowing I was loved. I felt safe and well-cared for. Those feelings were deeply embedded in my everyday existence and extended far beyond an individual sense of well-being.

I basically saw the world and everything it was just as fine as it was. Including me!

I was smart enough to realize there was room for improvement but in the bigger picture, I just didn’t worry about the improvements coming together. I had a deep, abiding sense all was on track. I wished good for all without tasking myself the job of managing it.

Life was pretty simple that way.

Three of Wands Rx: Making Good of What You Get 1

Mom had these all over the place when I was little; one whiff and boom! I’m six again.

Somewhere along the way, I lost that sense. Most of us do. Maybe it’s a by-product of growing up and becoming socialized.

But you know what? That sense of overriding faith is valuable. Even now, I see it as well worth cultivating.

My actions may not make big ripples in the world. My thoughts may not sway the masses. My sense of the best way to live may not matter to anybody else. But none of that needs to happen.

I want to amplify what I find good.  And I find making the best of what I’ve got, remaining optimistic and wishing well upon the world all to be good.

Next week, it’s good time to make the best of what you’ve got. So sayth the Tarot to me, anywho.

So that’s what happens if you let your camera do “night mode” to keep the black cards from reflecting the flash.

The outlook for next week is the Three of Wands. Advice came in with two cards sticking together–the Ten of Pentacles and Nine of Cups. All of these are from my well-worn Legacy of the Divine deck and note that all of them appeared reversed. (I turned them upright for the photo.)

For a reversed Three of Wands as a forecast, you can expect the essence of what you’ve been looking for–although likely, not in the form imagined. Look for the heart, the feelings of what you want even if it’s coming in a different outfit, okay? Because it is there. The question is more, will you be able to recognize it?

For advice, we got some super lovely, super positive cards, but also reversed. This is coming across as a very strong call to make the best of what you’ve got and trust, believe–yes even know–it’s all good.

Somebody could win the lotto, and be unhappy it wasn’t a big enough jackpot. Or somebody can not know what tomorrow will bring but still feel blessed right to have another day to breathe in the air and admire the flowers.

That sense of well-being isn’t an outside job. It’s not a reflection of circumstance. Circumstances can give us a temporary blip or boost but those sways never last. It’s what you produce internally that lasts.

Make it a good week. I know you can!

And if you want to hook up, give me a holler. I’ll be glad to do my best to help you find the groove that works for you.

Going with the Flow / Weekly Flow Tarot, May 11 – 17th

Bumping the weekly up so you don’t lose track.

Are y’all feeling that Scorpio moon? Wow…experiencing and getting reports from the field on very Scorpionic themes including flashbacks, grief, people from the long past showing up. My keyword for this right now is about value. I know that’s more of a Venusian concept, but I”m thinking a lot about this particular energy in terms of what’s worthwhile and what’s not. What do we want to keep and what needs to hit the compost heap.

I’m doing good, actually. I have some Scorpio and it’s comfortable energy for me. But I’m sure that’s not true for everybody, so what are you gonna do?

If you’re grappling with it, realize it should lighten up soon and look for stuff to donate or reuse. After all, that’s voluntarily expression the demand for resurrection. Or have some really dirty sex. That will work, too! Whatever you do, don’t deny the fact you cast a shadow. Because that sucker will come out one way or another. Best to know it.

If y’all missed today’s Woo-Woo Wonderful show on Magic Gardening, be sure to catch us on the reply. I’ll let you know when I’ve got captions done on it for my folks that use them.

Be well!

Weekly Tarot Forecast May 2014

Looking at the flow of the week, with about half the cards reversed there may be delays or at least slower-than-we’d-like progress. So what else is new? A good mix of elemental energy with Swords, Pentacles,  Wands and even a member of court showing for Cups. It looks fairly balanced and manageable overall.

Who else is counting the minutes until Mars goes direct (meaning progress)?

Sunday, Six of Swords Reversed – We cannot solve all our problems in a day, okay? This looks like a minor setback or temporary delay. Perhaps it’s the “one step back” that accompanies most two steps forward? Maybe it’s just the feeling of setback, too, without any real-world implications. I’m actually seeing most issues as still on track, although it may not feel like it. Don’t overreact. Yes, it may have been a choppy sea boat ride and you may be SO READY to disembark, but the cruise is not over. Maintain grace. Oh, and happy Mother’s Day!

Monday, Ten of Pentacles – A great day for connecting with family, be it blood relatives or the folks you call family. Also an excellent time to acknowledge all the good you have in your life. Gratitude is never a mistake, but the day especially resonates with that vibe. Possibility of a gift of some sort. Nice day!

Tuesday, Seven of Wands – Fight the good fight, even if you are on your own. This card always makes me think of that juncture in the Hero’s Journey where the hero turns back to his or her cohorts and says, “I have to do this part alone.” Do what you’ve got to, and do it with integrity. That’s what’s required.

Wednesday, Nine of Swords reversed – I’m seeing this as niggling (and honestly, generally unfounded) worries, a vague sense of discomfort or concern. Especially prominent at night. I want to suggest practical and emotional tactics: a to-do list for what you actually need to address, and a good movie, book, game, puzzle or song to distract your mind for the what-ifs that you don’t need to address. Once you’ve done what you can, look for a way to set it aside and get some rest.

Thursday, Page of Pentacles Reversed – A message not being heard perhaps, or maybe an unexpected bill shows up. Something is a bit off in the communication realm. Don’t panic, because there very well could be a misunderstanding. Read twice, respond once. If you don’t understand what you’re hearing, wait for clarification before acting if possible.

Friday, Queen of Cups – Ahhhhh. This is like a drink for the parched throat! Expect to find peace today, and maybe a little bliss. Tears are possible but if you do cry, expect productive tears. Psychological insights are quite accessible with this vibe. Don’t overdo it with the wine (or whine).

Saturday, Ace of Wands – Physical activity is favored, along with work on a satisfying hobby or side project. Anything that trips your passion switch will bring extra reward today. You might also be gearing up for your next project or job. Mars is going direct in a couple of days now, which means that tangles are untangling and forward motion is on it’s way. Thank goodness!

Affirmation: I release all expectations. [Sorry the pic’s blurry.] Bottom line, the Universe works the way it wants to work, not the way we want it to work. We cannot micromanage our lives, and frankly, we’d probably just muck things up if we did. It’s a time to work with the tools you’ve got on hand.

Be grass, not tree. Bend and you won’t break.

Are you struggling to go with the flow?

Weekly Flow Tarot, May 4–10th: One Step at a Time

mayweekly 001

Welcome to my first Tarot forecast experiment, which I’m calling a “weekly flow.” I pulled a card for each day, looking at the overall flow for all of them along with the daily energy.

It looks like this week is going to demand some stamina, with solid follow-through and a dash of faith to fare the best. With over half of the cards inverted, I am expecting  impatience and frustration about slow-moving situations and the inverted cups in particular suggest the delays and frustrations can be emotionally draining at times. If you already know to expect this, you can factor it in.

Sunday, The Wheel – Be on the lookout for a lucky break today and hop on that train if it pulls up outside your door! Even if you don’t notice a specific opportunity though, do use some part of the day to do any necessary prep for the week ahead since it looks to give you a good leg up on following days. This day is the kiss of the coming week.

Monday, Queen of Swords – Stick to business and  forego editorializing in conversation. It’s liable to be misunderstood or taken too harshly. Prioritize; focus on the facts and especially the most important. Let anything irrelevant to the main objective go. Detach and rise above conflict if it doesn’t further the agenda.

Tuesday, King of Cups Rx– It’s looking squishy today!  You may have some of those messy ol’ feelings, about which there is absolutely nothing to do. Potential for self-pity or someone arriving with a sob story looking to divert you from your better judgment. Set aside major decisions until your emotional mojo is refilled. Chocolate would probably help… (But then again, I always think chocolate will help.)

Wednesday, Four of Wands Rx – Potential for cranky housemates or feelings of isolation and alienation in general. Cleaning (with the intention of evicting stale, disruptive energy along with grime) will help considerably. Order in your surroundings makes a big difference. I do mean literally and in every sense of the concept. If you get an email that bothers you, clean out your inbox. If it’s an argument in the kitchen, do the dishes. If you feel bothered at work, organize desk drawers. If you can find a physical action that’s symbolic of the bother, that’s even better. Follow up with adding something special to the space—a rock, a plant, a pillow, whatever that symbolizes being “at home” again.

Thursday, Queen of Wands – You’ve got this! You’ve made it through most of the week. The capacity to get your $*%$ done is in high gear. You have access to creative solutions and nobody’s getting one over on you. Be confident and bold!

Friday, Ace of Cups Rx – Damn, this looks like tired to me! Great day for a little escaping into music, a movie, a good book or even a nap. Eat well and rest. Exhale.

Saturday, Five of Pentacles Rx – It’s like the stressors you haven’t had time to process so far sink in. Don’t wait for others to know you could use some support or skip the asking, assuming there is none to be had. Reach out for what you need, or offer it to others if you are not in need. You’re not on your own today with whatever’s weighing you down unless you insist on being on your own.

The affirmation for this week: “I trust the process of life.”

Despite the demands and emotional blips, what needs to happen is happening. Stay present, stay optimistic, and stay on task. All materializes at the right pace. You got this…

So what do you think?

Forecast for Dec. 23 Week – Don’t Blame the Temptation

I’m back with a weekly video forecast. I think the face I’m making is pretty self-explanatory.

Short version: The sense of “no control” is false. Whether your “drug of choice” is spending, food, a bad-for-you relationship or whatever, indulgence or abstinence is entirely your call. Make whichever call you want, but do so understanding the consequences. And for God’s sakes, don’t get yourself arrested!

What are you seeing for this week?

Dec. 16 Weekly Forecast: Don’t Give Up, Sparky. You can do it!

This week’s Tarot forecast isn’t…exciting and fun. But it’s not out-and-out discouraging, either. It just needs a nap.

Short version: It looks to be a tiring time and maybe you wonder if you can get through this stretch. If I’m pulling the 9 of Wands, the answer is yes! Seek support, taking care of yourself, and hang in there friends!

Weekly Tarot Forecast: Moderation, Grasshopper!

For the week of December 2…maybe I should have gotten this out earlier!

Short version: I’m feeling a back-and-forth pull between spending freely and regretting it the morning after. Budget your resources of all kinds, including energetic!

Are you feeling “spendy?”

p.s. Yes, I know I have funny faces in my video picture thumbnails. I do it intentionally. One, it could make people wonder “What the Hell?” and watch my videos. 2. It helped me get over my fear of doing videos by learning not to take myself too seriously.
