05/26/12: Gimme Patience NOW! | rev King Wands, Ace Wands

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

IMG_2181

The King of Wands (Fire in Fire) is active, dynamic and effective, at least upright. Reversed, he’s got some frustration. He is not someone who takes kindly to feeling thwarted. Paired with the Ace of Wands, you know he’s not done. Aces are beginnings, not endings! But he does have to start at the beginning and work his way through anything blocking his creative force.

It may be time to re-evaluate your desires. Is it built on solid foundation? Does it suit you, or do you stubbornly cling to outmoded action? You CAN make progress, as long as you do not insist on doing it by hopping on the horse midstream.

Start at the beginning, brining your fire to bear in all actions from the very start. If you can deal with the impatience and bust through, you can make it happen now. But take it one step at a time.

Are you feeling impatient?

05/25/12: Help the Kid Out…| Knave Pentacles

Earth in earth, the Knave/Page of Pentacles is above all REAL. page-pentacles-meaningHe’s the brick and mortar, the new job,or the fresh start. He moves one step at a time, one foot in front of the other, step-by-step. He works in the realm of tangible. He’s young, yes, but also promising. He has a bright potential, but it’s not assured.

Reversed, he’s hitting a snag, maybe having trouble getting himself out of a hole.

The key to this Page getting back on track it to start with small, physical details.  Look both to physical means of support—not just financial, but healthy food, plenty of rest and pleasant, and an uplifting environment. Time outside is also helpful. If it’s grounding and earthy, it’s good medicine here.

Goals are also important to Page energy—see how he holds the pentacle up high? He is looking for physical manifestations of his efforts. Measurable progress toward specific achievements, however humble, are very beneficial as he needs to feel effective. It keeps his anxiety at bay.

You can help get your inner Page on track by supporting his efforts on your behalf. Make his job easier! Break responsibilities down into manageable chunks and set priorities. Be kind to yourself physically. Schedule even brief retreats to beautiful, natural spaces to regenerate. Feed your body, your mind and your soul, and he’ll help you claim your material rewards.

Are you feeling this Page’s struggle?

05/23/12: What reality are you marrying? | 4 of Wands

four-wands-meaning

Everybody knows, the Four of Wands is “the wedding card.” You see it for  literal marriage, celebrations and big events. But cards say what they want to say, how they want to say it.

Once, I got this card along with the Queen of Cups, who was frequently appearing as to me as a counselor around that time. So I asked, “Are you  marriage counselor?”

I was stunned to learn she worked Hospice. I wasn’t expecting it! But come to think of it, death is a pretty darned big event, too. And depending perspective, maybe something to celebrate.

In the Legacy of the Divine deck, this card is shown as an outdoor retreat. After running across it, I started getting it to for the idea of a safe harbor, too. The Tarot fours are about stability, and the sense of a peaceful retreat from the artwork.

The New Vision Tarot kind of screams, “the other side of the story.” What reality, what vision, myth, story or explanation for your world have you married? This filter is the other side of the story, the comfortable chair you settle into at the end of the day from which you view the world.

Does it serve you? Is it a happy union, one that still fits who you are? Is it comfortable and safe?

The story you tell yourself, the feelings that live deep inside your heart, the version of truth you initial to live with—this is what you commit to live. If you don’t like it, cancel the wedding! Break up and find you a better companion.

Are you feeling married to any unpleasant realities?

02/22/12: Backup Plans | Rev 4 of Pentacles

four-pentacles

“Courage is knowing what not to fear.” Plato

Not feeling stable? (Heck—it doesn’t look like even my hand was stable taking this photo!) The reversed Four of Pentacles (Sun in Capricorn) feels your pain, man. He holds on to everything he’s got, precisely because he’s not sure exactly where his next meal is coming from. The worry has him all upside down, and it wouldn’t be too surprising if he lost hold of a coin or two in such a state.

When you find yourself lacking a sense of stability, look for ways to shore yourself up. Capricorn fears will abate in the face of planning—it can be worst case scenario, if that’s what your Cappy demands. After all, you don’t have to obsess endlessly on the worries. Just so long as you feel confident you have OPTIONS and TOOLS to deal with whatever comes you’re way, you’ll feel better and be able to flip this card upright, getting your sense of stability back.

Are you feeling stable, or upended?

“It is a true miracle when a man finally sees himself as his only opposition.” Vernon Howard

Today’s Tarot is the reversed Two of Wands (Sun in Aries). No need to fight or struggle against outside forces. Opposition falls away in short order without any effort on your part. In other words, you’re good to go.

Who’s standing in your way?

02/20/12: Temper It, Already! | Temperance

temperance-new-visoinsMan! Are you getting tired of seeing this card yet? Seems like I can’t turn around with it showing up. I think that means it’s me…

Temperance. That’s Sag energy. See the bigger picture, compromise, integrate as needed. Don’t get drunk! Be aware of self-indulgences and see about using a little moderation for goodness sakes!

So sayth Tarot according to Dixie.

Could you use a little more Temperance? (Evidently, I can!)
