11/15/13: Windows into Mirrors / Hermit

Hermit Morgan-Greer TarotI like to say sometimes with Tarot, all roads lead home. Every observation ultimately becomes a personal observation. The stuff that drives you crazy about other people? It says more about YOU than anyone else, a lot of the time. The problem you have over and over? About you. The things that happen in your life, the lessons, the problems, the recurrent patterns? Always the same common denominator, man.

If you look long enough, every window eventually becomes a mirror. Even if what you see doesn’t directly reflect your behavior, reactions do tell you something about yourself.

“Damn mirrors!” as one of my Tarot peeps says. Then we laugh, knowing that once you’ve caught that reflection, you may be able to ignore it at times but you cannot un-see it. Growth accomplished, damn it!

This is the energy of the Hermit. He withdraws from the world as a method to explore the universe. Every answer he finds within.

When you see the Hermit, you may want to set aside some quiet time, not just to “solve problems” but to meditate, relax, and regenerate. Sometimes it’s not until we quiet the din of everyday life that we can hear the voice of truth.

Are you feeling “Hermity?” (Yes, I just said “Hermity.” Deal with it.)

11/14/13: Don’t know what you don’t know… / 7 of Cups Rx

Reversed 7 of Cups Morgan-Greer TarotYou don’t know what you don’t know. That’s what the reversed Seven of Cups is mumbling in my ear. At least, I think that’s what he’s saying. Or she. This is a shifty one, this card!

You remember that party game of telephone line? Where one person whispers something to the next person, just once, and it goes around the room? Today is like that.

What you’re hearing may have nothing to do with what reality. Expect to be getting partial and distorted information. Maybe it was a lie, maybe a misunderstanding, maybe a bit of plain ol’ garden-variety insanity that got things where they are, but I’d say it’s likely everything is not as it appears at the moment.

Put your “Jump to Conclusions” mat away, because if you hop on it today, it could well slip out from under your feet. Nobody needs an nasty spill like that.

Am I saying those conclusions would be wrong? Hell no! Just that we don’t know.

What do do with it? Wait it out, of course. Pay more attention to the urges to ram headfirst than the “facts” upon which the urges are based. And as far as action, give it a minute, will ya?

You trying to make your way through a fog?

11/13/13: Feeling the Love / Lovers

Lovers Morgan-Greer Tarot

On the heels of Death, these Lovers showing up makes me think of the times when I’ve been the most distressed throughout my years. It doesn’t matter if it’s a family blow-out, marriage trouble, financial disaster, or a literal death…whatever the crisis is, there’s one thing such intense periods do very well.

Intensely difficult periods show us who loves us, demonstrating that love in a very tangible way. They lift us up with their kindness and caring. I’d be willing to venture not a single person this reaches cannot think of someone in their lives who has shown up for them in this way.

Today, take a minute to feel gratitude for the people who love you. Value them. And be one of them—be someone who loves fully, unconditionally and with the whole soul. And don’t you think for one little minute it doesn’t make a difference.

Are you feeling the love?

11/12/13: Tread Softly / Death

Death Morgan-Greer Tarot Deck

Oy vey. We’ve got Mr. Grim himself today, no cushion, no disguise. Death has come a’callin. What is there to say?

You deal with what you need to deal with, I guess. You cry your tears and pack up your mess and you head home, wherever home is. A hot bath and sleep if you can manage it, and you get up tomorrow and go about the business of living.

Some days are easy. Some are hard. This particular Death feels harsh to me. But following the High Priestess as he is, I can’t help but wonder if we didn’t see the end coming.

This may not be your message today. I hope not! It may be around you or you may be one of the lucky ones who isn’t particularly touched. If you find yourself in such a place, the best thing to do is be thankful and be kind to everyone you meet. You never know who is on the other side of your gaze, you know? You don’t know that person’s innermost secrets and it may be the very person whose life just got restructured.

No matter where your personal fortunes fall, this is a day to tread softly and speak kindly.

Are you feeling this energy?

11/11/13: Quoting the High Priestess

High Pristess Morgan Greer Tarot

“The secret of being a bore… is to tell everything.” –Voltaire

One thing about this lady: quiet and still she may be, but boring she’s not.

What’s written on that scroll of secret knowledge? The High Priestess knows, but you can bet your fanny pack she’s not about to talk! Of all in the Tarot universe, she’s the safest keeper of secrets. That veil behind her is held up by solid pillars, and it’s only the faintest glimpse showing through of the waters behind it. Even without being able to see more though, I’m betting those waters run deep.

Rather than tell you what she has to say, I want to share some quotes by Voltaire, a French writer from the 1700’s who appears to have had a particularly good grasp on the nature of her energy. Any of these quotes I can imagine uttered by the mysterious seer herself. If she were to talk, that is.

“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.”

“It is said that the present is pregnant with the future.”

“We never live; we are always in the expectation of living.”

“We must distinguish between speaking to deceive and being silent to be reserved.”

“It is the flash which appears, the thunderbolt will follow.”

“Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do.”

“Is there anyone so wise as to learn by the experience of others?”

“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.”

“It is not enough to conquer; one must learn to seduce.”


Are you getting a message from the High Priestess today? (You don’t have to tell if you don’t want to!)

Singingfairy: Master’s Degree or Move on? Mini-reading

“Hi Dixie,
I’ve put off finishing my masters degree for a while now. The love for it is gone, but I feel like I have to finish it or I will aways be that baggage. I’ve been thinking about going into a new direction – music – but then that old master always shows up. How can I move past this old energy?
Thank you so much!” -Singingfairy

Well, let’s see what we can get.

Short Answer:  This reading was interesting in that I needed a clarification card to get the main message, which is (of course) follow your heart, but with the caveat of using your education thus-far and the probability of needing a job-job in the interim. Hope that’s helpful to you!
