Minding Your Own Business is Good Medicine: Tarot Forecast, Oct 31 – Nov 6, 2016

“I’ve decided to forget worrying about my kids,” I told my mom the other day. “I am staying out of their business completely and I’m a lot happier this way.”

“Really, Dixie? I don’t know how you can manage it.”

I was surprised. Really surprised. I thought my mom was pretty darned good at this! With the exception of an occasional lapse, she almost never tells us what to do or expresses judgement over our choices. (Okay. I’m not counting that face she makes sometimes when she sees something she doesn’t like. She can’t help that.)

“Oh, I worry all the time,” Mom confided. “It never stops. I just try to keep my mouth shut unless I’m asked.”

She clearly does a pretty good job of it.

For me, it’s not about caring. I care every iota as much as I ever have.

It’s just that my kids are adults now and I respect that. I respect the fact their choices are not mine, any more than my choices are my mother’s. I respect the fact they have access to the exact same resources as I do–those of the Universal stream of wellness. And I respect that, as individuals, it’s THEIR JOB to live their lives and figure out what they want and how to live. Not mine.

Also, it’s a whole lot nicer to say, “I’m sure you’ll figure it out” and mean it than to try and figure it out for them. It’s just good medicine, minding your own business, all around.

This week? This would be a very handy philosophy to adopt in general. (Okay, I think “always,” not just this week. But I am admittedly biased.)

Tarot Forecast Halloween Week

Happy Halloween, y’all! I decided to skip the Zombie Tarot this week even though the forecast begins on Halloween because why? I didn’t feel like using it. Reason enough, man.

If you’re into audio, here’s an audio version of this weekly forecast reading. You can also subscribe to the audios (and whatever else I toss up there) on iTunes here or you can download the files or subscribe via rss here.  Because who knows what I might decide to record and toss up there?

We’ve got some inverted cards, especially in the beginning of the week. So the energy is there, but not freely expressing. So we’ll probably have a slow start to the week, but no worries. It clears nicely by the end of the week. Looking at themes, I’m seeing the idea of being responsible for your own self and only your own self, and butting out of everybody else’s self. Even if you “know they are wrong!” Especially if you feel that way. You know why?

Trusting another to work out their own life, their own thoughts, and their own course is an act of respect and love. Anything short of that is sending the message, “I don’t trust you.” Not only that, but “I don’t trust your connection to the Universe to get you through this is the best way possible. So I have will do for you.” That, my friends, is not true and it’s a fancy way of avoiding mirrors.

Monday, Ten of Pentacles rx: I like this card in general. But today, I want to tell you to be aware of your purchases and put off impulse purchases. I don’t see this as heavy, not a big financial issue, but more like buying something and seeing it on sale the next day. Also? Extrapolate the concepts towards energy resources and not just cash. Like you may start something that requires more time, energy or effort than you were prepared for. So expenditures of any sort may demand more than you had initially budgeted. Not a shortage so much as just more than you expected.

Tuesday, The Empress rx: The Empress is a peach no matter how she shows up. Today though…don’t mother those that don’t want to be mothered. Don’t meddle or offer unsolicited advice. You’ll have much better luck focusing on your OWN projects instead of other people’s projects.

Wednesday, Ten of Wands: Here’s one I’d rather see inverted! But you get what you get. Many tasks. Feelings of being burdened with responsibilities. Ask yourself, which are truly yours. Some may not be. Secondly, prioritize for the important stuff and let everything else go. Focus first and foremost on what matters truly, and the day will go well.

Thursday, Queen of Wands rx: Normally when this lady shows up reversed, there can be potential for being stubborn or overcontrolling. But right now, let’s hone in on your disposition and general attitude. There is a tendency to be fussy over stuff that isn’t that big deal in the bigger picture. Like a child who has missed their nap, there may be a little crankiness out in the wild. If your mood is off, cut yourself and everybody else some slack. Withdraw instead of striking out and allow yourself time to get back to your happy space.

Friday, Eight of Wands: Stuff may feel unsettled and up in the air. But the energy is moving quickly and it will be settled in short order. Know that all the components already in place. Like someone who has already sent off a letter that cannot be retrieved, what’s going down is a done deal. So let it be and call upon your faith because that’s what you’ve got.

Saturday, Nine of Cups: Weekend looks great! This is “the wish card.” All is right with the world kind of feeling. Expect a good day and enjoy it.

Sunday, Four of Swords: It’s an opportunity to set down your burdens and rest and replenish. It should be a happy, fun and replenishing time for most over the weekend. Have fun!

Overview/Advice: Page of Cups: Be loving, be kind, and live from your heart, yes. But to expand, pay a lot of attention to your feelings! They are your GPS. If it feels icky, don’t touch it! Please don’t let your brain talk you out of it. You don’t need a list of reasons why you don’t feel it. And likewise, if you’re feeling excited, go with it! Don’t separate yourself from your own internal signal by discounted it. Your emotions are extremely important, this is where you get so much guidance! So throughout the week, look to let your emotions chart your course. Honor them, as they are SO valuable and important! A lot of psychic and intuitive info comes in this way.

Affirmation: I am at peace with my age. What are you gonna do if you’re not? Makes a lot of sense to make peace with whatever you cannot change. If you know me, you know I pretty much don’t care about my age. Your age doesn’t dictate what you can and cannot do. What’s in your heart and your desires drives this. I love being my age–I like the life experience and the confidence that comes with a few miles, along with a little broader perspective. But you will feel how you feel. I would suggest, however, you look for things to appreciate about whatever age or place you happen to be, you’ll be much happier. Look to stuff to feel good about no matter what!

You cannot control others. You are happier when you live life not obsessing over what you cannot control. Be happy. Live your own life and focus on what matters to you. Show everyone the same respect. It’s the best advice I can give you…for this week and yes, forever beyond, too.

Are you at peace with what cannot be changed?

This forecast uses the Tarot Nova mini deck, and the Louise Hay Power Thought Cards for the affirmation. If you dig my stuff, you may like my book, Everyday Tarot Archives, and/or a consult. Be well! ~Dix

Get Off of My Cloud: Weekly Tarot, July 18 – 24

If you could go back in time and do it all over again, would you?

I’m not talking about Marty McFly noting the winning sports teams. I mean reliving your life, making those choices that led you from your start in this lifetime to where you are, now.

Because I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t even entertain the notion.

It’s not because I couldn’t find things to do differently. Oh man, could I!

But I like who I am. I realize, every day that preceded, every choice and every word and every action, helped lead me here. It helped me create who I am, now. I did the best I knew how to in the moment, and through that, I’ve grown. I’ve learned. I’ve experienced. All that stuff I didn’t want helped me clarify what I do want. All the ways I didn’t like being helped me see, how I do like being now.

I don’t believe in guilt. It’s an utterly useless emotion–feeling bad about what cannot be changed poisons us in the present and keeps us from living fully in the now, the single place where we have any power whatsoever. Worry over the future serves a similar function. It takes us out of our now and shifts our experience from whatever goodness we have at our fingertips to virtually living an experience we don’t want.

No. Just, no.

My path is MY path. Those who share the road with me are not inhabitants of my path and my path does not determine theirs. There are no do-overs. There are no try-harders. There is only now, now, now.

This is my cloud. You can come visit if you like and we are vibing similarly. Or not. But right now, it’s a very good idea to be selective, who and what you invite onto your cloud.

20160716_134328_HDR

As I look over this week, the outstanding impression I get is the importance of staying grounded in your own well-being. It’s anything but a static week. The cues from the outside world may well be inconsistent and fast-changing. Plugging in to the mass consciousness vibe will be like a roller coaster: up, down, fast, slow, hither and yon. Not stable at all! The cues within, you have control over by direction your thoughts and attention. I’m not suggesting you don’t care about the world. I’m suggesting you care about the world and everyone in it (which, ahem, includes you) enough to make sure YOU are not adding to the chaos. How? By consciously managing your own vibe.

Stay in the love, folks. Stay in the love–and if anything or anybody makes you wobble in that love? Retreat and get yourself right back there. You do that, and your light contributes to eradicating the darkness.

You do more good to yourself and the world at large by staying in the love than anything else you can do.

Monday, Two of Wands: No need for a stand-off with conflicting desires (either within you, or between you and another). Just let them all be for now and allow the time for clarity to do it’s work by emerging from the confusion. There’s a tendency to want to push back, push back. But instead, stand back, stand back. Let it marinate today.

Tuesday, Wheel of Fortune: Click, click, click into place. A lucky break may show up, or a bit of good fortune, boom! At your feel. Celebrate it, for sure. But also? Know the days that don’t feel quite as lucky are still filled to the brim with good things. You just have to acknowledge them to turn them up.

Wednesday, Six of Cups rx: Do you have faith? Do you trust? Think of your level of trust and knowing here as “what’s in the water.” The more you drink of it, the greater the blessings you allow in. There is a tendency to question goodness today and look for who’s out to hurt you. Don’t. It’s not a time to count grievances. Turn up your blessings by counting THOSE.

Thursday, Page of Cups rx: Moody, temperamental day for many. The upside? These emotional states are very fast-moving. So if you’re got a mood going you don’t dig, it’s not hard to turn it around with a little distraction and conscious cultivation of the feeling state you’d prefer.  And if you’re already feeling what you like? Well, milk it a bit and enjoy the ride. Hugs and naps are great medicine today.

Friday, The Emperor: Care SO MUCH about how you feel that you’re unwilling to compromise on feeling good. So much of our energy can go to trying to please others–an impossible task if ever there was one. You don’t have to be a mirror for the emotional state of others. Instead, be the example for the others to mirror (if they so choose, or not, if they don’t choose). You are in control of your own feelings, so take advantage of that!

[bctt tweet=”Nobody can climb on your cloud unless hand ’em a ticket. #OnMyRadar ” username=”goddess_dix”]

Saturday, Seven of Wands: Stand firm in what you know to be true for you and ignore anyone or anything that is not in alignment with your understanding. Shortly, those that don’t vibrate on your frequency will disappear from your circle of experience.

Sunday, Queen of Swords rx: It’s a good time to retreat and sort through what you’ve got going. Be it physical stuff or emotional engagements or whatever, prioritize and sort. Put your attention on what matters to you, what feels good, and let go what does not. This isn’t a judgey thing. It’s a being happier thing.

Overview/Advice, The Hermit: Declare yourself observer and student this week. Rather than emotionally engage in everything you see, step back and study it. Notice and look for trends. Spend plenty of quiet time, alone time, and replenishing time. Meditation is a great idea! Peacefulness and mindfulness helps you stay grounded in the midst of anyone else’s negative emotions. You don’t have to sign on for that class, you know? You can step back and stay out of the storm. In fact, it’s highly advised.

My inner being guides me through my emotions. When you feel bad, it’s not punishment or karma or random chance. It’s a signal, that how you’re looking at the world is not in sync with how your higher self sees it. We may perceive lack and pain and chaos. But in the bigger picture, the way spirit sees the world, everything is happening in the right place at the right time. I know that sounds like a contradiction but it’s not. There is a an infinite diversity to life experience and sometimes even the most unpleasant ones lead beauty and grace. No matter what you’re feeling in any given time, look for the feeling one step up, one step up, one step up. This IS your emotional guidance system and it’s all you need to stay in strong alignment with spirit. The better you feel, the easier it is to remain connected and the stronger that connection is. So just look at all emotion as your inner GPS, guiding you to greater happiness and fulfillment. And for that to work, we must rely on all emotion, wanted or not, since all of it provides valuable information.

Be well out there!

Letting Go of the Strings: Weekly Tarot Forecast, Mar 7 – 13, 2016

We say we trust the Universe. We say we have faith. We read the write books and burn the right candles and share the right inspirational memes.

And often, we set out our intentions aligned with that belief. But then, we don’t release those intentions go, out to do their work.

And how do you know, when you’ve failed to release your intentions?

The questions start in.

“When? HOW? This is impossible. It’s not gonna work. Hurry up, already! Hurry up! Because I am freaking out over here.”

This is a breakdown of faith. Instead of sending it out and letting it happen–knowing we are already supported and get what we need, even if it’s not always what we’d like–that anxiety is like a homing signal, calling back those intentions over and over again.

Setting intentions is like releasing a balloon. To have those intentions supported by Source energy, the balloon must travel up, above and beyond your sight. The magic happens beyond our human field of vision.

But when you attach strings to your intention balloons–the strings of how and when and all the particulars–what “must be” and how it must be in order for you to feel save? Well, that mucks up the fulfillment process. It keeps your balloon near the ground.

It may feel more comfortable to keep your balloon close, here you can check on it every thirty seconds. But I can absolutely promise you, those intentions will never take off as long as you’re fearfully clutching those strings. Faith is the secret ingredient to fulfilling your intentions. It’s required.

[bctt tweet=”Without faith, intentions are no more than worries.”]

IMG_5079

We’ve got an eclipse this week, folks. I’ve actually been feeling it for the last couple, coming in. I’ll let the actual astrologers write about the particulars. But just so you know, the energy out there is powerful, crackling and intense. And that’s neither a good or bad thing, by itself. It’s all in what you do with it. I’d suggest setting your intentions and letting go of the strings.

Monday, Integration, Temperance, reversed: You’re learning, but you don’t have it all figured out, all the way, quite yet. That’s fine! There’s nothing wrong with that. Just keep paying attention and using what you’ve learned thus far. That’s how you make it your own. Use practice to integrate new learning with your existing base of mastered skills. This is solidifying learning by doing.

Tuesday, Experiencing, Three of Wands: Note the progress you’ve made, and what direction it’s leading you. Take what you’ve started and continue to build. Be present.

Wednesday, Innocence, The Sun Reversed: You’ll notice undercurrents–and you may not entirely like those undercurrents. It is what it is, you know? People have mixed and complex motivations. That doesn’t mean someone is bad. Just human.

Thursday, Celebration, Three of Cups: Have a night out (or afternoon in) with dear friends. And for God’s sakes, confide in somebody, okay? Don’t keep all those thoughts in your head or the feelings trapped in your heart. Connection heals.

Friday, The Source, Ace of Wands reversed: I’m seeing this as a smidge of a wet blanket effect. Something (or someone?) raining a bit on the parade. Don’t let small distractions or minor complaints interfere with your enthusiasm. The complaints don’t amount to much. But the enthusiasm does.

Saturday, Mind,  Page of Swords: Ah, this day looks a little anxious. You’re most likely overthinking it, though. Remember that if you can think yourself into a tizzy, you can just as easily think yourself right out of it, too.

Sunday, Trust, Page of Cups reversed: Keep working on keeping that faith. It’s there, but sometimes we talk ourselves out of it. You do what makes sense in your heart and back it up with real-world rational, okay? That’s a solid combination.

Overview/Advice, Ripeness, Nine of Pentacles reversed: Lesson is in progress. Emphasis on the “progress” bit because, hey, we ARE progressing! In terms of advice, this is not the week to be jumping–the gun, to conclusions, or off the deep end! Set your intentions and let go of the string.

Affirmation – Peace, Archangel Chamuel: “Peace comes from remembering that only love is real.” I really do dig this thought even if I have trouble fully believing it sometimes. Putting it into perspective for me–when someone dislikes me, it doesn’t change who I am. It doesn’t make any vitriol aimed my way justified, warranted or somehow “right.” That negative energy isn’t real in the sense it doesn’t speak to me or who I am, any more than jealousy or resentment or any one of the myriad of projections we aim at each other on a daily basis. Such ugly baggage is the work of a limping ego, stabbing out at others to self-medicate fear and inadequacy. That’s not real.

But love? Love comes from recognizing the beauty and humanity in one another. Love is a process of recognizing the divine energy in the other. There’s nothing more real than that.

This week, strive for patience. Patience with yourself, as you learn and integrate under intense and dynamic energy patterns. Patience with others, as they sometimes stumble before they shine as they do the same. Acknowledge progress and look to connect on a heart level. This bolsters faith and allows those intentions to transform from worries to reality.

Except I still cannot promise you it will be on your schedule. Because I haven’t figured out how to get the Universe to do that yet.

Do you set intentions? Do you have some for the Eclipse?

Leveling Up: Weekly Tarot Forecast, Feb 29 – Mar 6

“It’s intense. Not bad necessarily, but very intense.”

She had that deer-in-the-headlights,-what-the-Hell-is-that-supposed-to-mean look.

I was talking about the upcoming eclipses, and how it’s felt since the recent full moon in Virgo.

I wasn’t trying to be scary but, you know. People would prefer sunshine and daffodils.

“Well, you know all these changes you’re going through recently? It’s really hard right now. Stressful. The changes are not bad–they’re for the better in the long run. All of them are good. The work you’re doing now is very hard, but it’s going to a good ends. And it all counts! Next week, you’ll have made a lot of progress from this week.”

She agreed.

“And I’m in the same boat, with my projects. It’s intense. Overwhelming sometimes. But with a purpose and a payoff.”

And this, my friends, is what this next week is about. Might not like the feelings now–most of us might be more than a little tired. But the point of all that effort is firmly intact. And it’s worth it.

We’re in the process of leveling up. That means the stakes are a little higher, and the work is a little harder. But the rewards are also a little sweeter. Like it or not, matters not to the Universe. So do your best and insulate yourself.

Oh, and one more thing? With Eclipse season upon us, what we’re doing now, what we’re working through has IMPACT. So…do your best to do your best, okay? Meaning, don’t cash in your integrity for an apparently easy shortcut or gain.

Do the RIGHT THING, whether you think you’re being watched or not. It always matters, but now? It matters even more than usual. Pressure is high and many situations will intensify to the crux. You want to be above reproach if anything happens to come crashing down in your lap, you know?

March 8 is the first Eclipse and it’s gonna be a doozy. Don’t say I didn’t give y’all a heads up on this…

20160213_171944_HDR

Ah, the cards. I’m seeing evidence of the incoming eclipse and general, highly sensitized astro-weather out there, in next week. I am expecting emotions to be veritably crackling and largely visceral, especially the first part of the week. Thursday through the weekend looks much easier to manage. But Tuesday and Wednesday are high alert days, just so you know.

Monday, Judgement Reversed: Who do you most often blame when something goes wrong? Other people? Yourself? Default patterns are usually less-than-useful. Potential of missing important information due being wedded to a particular narrative. Keep an open mind in anticipation that the story may be quite a bit different than you initially thought.

[bctt tweet=”Whose fault is much less relevant than, ‘what now?’ #tarot”]

Tuesday, Three of Swords: Ow! Sorry, there’s no pretty spin for the Three of Swords. This card shows a loss, and the hurting over that loss. Now, since this is a public forecast, I can certainly wish this feeling is not personal to you! But there’s a good chance, it’s going to be personal to somebody–including maybe somebody you interact with. So step lightly with compassion, and carry tissue. Kindness is the order of the day.

Wednesday, Ten of Swords: Too much! The Ten of Swords shows up when we feel overwhelmed, betrayed, tapped out and back-stabbed. It’s the rock-bottom feeling we’re talking. Although there is a smidge of a bright side with this card–no place to go but up. Schedule extra downtime today and make space in your schedule for self-care. Time to tend to your wounds and get yourself a good night’s sleep. Everything will unquestionably look better in the morning.

Thursday, Six of Wands: Yes! A rebound! Take a deep breath, put on your ass-kicking shoes, and go forth to face the challenges of the day. You have the capacity to conquer them.

Friday, Queen of Wands: Focus and determination in equal mix with passion is the recipe for success. Not bull-headedness…unless it’s something you really need to be bull-headed about. Some issues are worth digging your heels in over, you know? And as always with the Wands Royalty, be sure you’re not being a control-freak all over other people. Only control-freak yourself, man.

Saturday, Page of Cups: A little case of the feels, today. Be kind, and spend time with others who are kind. Loving energy always heals but today? Loving kindness is super-charged. Take advantage.

Sunday, Ace of Swords Reversed: Plans probably won’t go as planned. This is not a huge problem–we’re talking loose plans or early stages here. So lean into your power of flexibility to make up any lost ground. You can save the day with quick thinking.

Overview/Advice – The Magician: To make this week work, attending to your thought processes and focusing on what you DO have control over will be paramount. I find the Magician a very encouraging card in this position, because he reassures me, people will indeed have the magic powers they need to navigate any difficulty successfully. Remember, the gift of the Magician is in channeling the energy sources available to him. He takes the same things everybody else may have it hand, but uses them intentionally. So throughout the week, as you’re allocating your energy, your thoughts, your actions, do so deliberately and intentionally. This will help you sail over any rough patches and come out the other side feeling accomplished.

Affirmation: I am beautiful and everybody loves me. This affirmation always cracks me up. On a surface level, it’s so obviously untrue. I know there are people who do not love me! However, I also know people frequently underestimate how many people do love them. Here’s what I’m thinking, it terms of advice: see your own beauty. Assess yourself as kindly as you would a dear, beloved friend. Only allow people into your inner circle who DO actually love you. I am considering this affirmation not so much a reflection of some sort of objective reality as advice, for creating the reality you would like. Act in accordance with what you find beautiful in yourself. Only do those things in private that you would not be ashamed to have known publically. Only invite kind, loving and loyal people into your world. Don’t give the assholes a vote! You do this, and this affirmation can be true. You just have to decide to make it so.

How are you faring out there?

Accepting the Good: Weekly Tarot, Jan 25 – 31, 2016

A perk of my job as Tarot-slinger is having a heads-up notice on shifts, in the energy trends. I get a pretty good feel for the flavor of incoming vibes.

And right now? It’s shifting. People’s lives are in significant transition. Like the ground is moving around, underneath, but we’re all trying to keep moving forward, lest we fall into a hole!

When I think back, to all the accomplishments I’m most proud of…without exception, every single one of them sucked on the way there. When I lost 100 pounds, when I went back to school, when I got married and became insta-mom, when I presented at industry conferences, when I started my own business(es)…those times and so much more, always the same feelings.

Every single time, I was uncertain and scared and stressed and overwhelmed with the reach required. Every single time, I wondered if I could manage it.

And every single time, I thought to myself, “If I had known before I started…I’m not sure I would have!”

This looks like the week people may be saying that, to themselves.

20160116_180509_HDR

Shifts are very much apparent. Now that makes sense, as Mercury is going direct, and completely leaving his shadow at the start of February. Full speed ahead! We hit a big ol’ Full Moon in Leo the weekend before this forecast starts, which tends towards the dramatic. It doesn’t feel settled yet by a shot, but we are getting the car turned around and back on course. And that’s blessing enough, I think!

One more week for the Housewives Tarot and then I’ll put the ladies up for a while. I know not everybody enjoys this deck is much as I do.

Monday, Page of Cups: Speak from the heart, be very aware of your emotions, and do your best to take care of emotional issues. I do see this as a feely sort of day, although the feelings aren’t necessarily negative. But I think there’s gonna be a fair amount of them, of whatever flavor they are.  So make allowances.

Tuesday, Three of Wands reversed: I’m seeing somebody come in and mess up the room that you just picked up. Like plopping a dirty dish in the sink right after you’ve finished the dishes. Throwing clothes on the floor right away after you put away laundry. Don’t get over-emotional about it. I don’t think it’s intentional. But yeah, I know that’s annoying. Sorry!

Wednesday, Nine of Swords reversed: You worry too much. Potential anxiety or overreaction, feeling kind of alone. If you talk to somebody, particularly somebody who you trust, like an father figure, it won’t necessarily solve everything, but it might help ground you. Just know, anxiety that comes up today is probably not intuition so much as emotional flow, feeling overwhelmed.

Thursday, King of Wands: You can get a lot of stuff done! This is an energetic powerhouse kind of day. A full schedule, plenty of work to do, lots of meetings or appointments, errands, doesn’t matter. Highly productive day. Enjoy it!

Friday, the High Priestess: Here she’s coming in upright. A good day to sit back and watch what happens. Keep your mouth shut. Don’t make any major moves. Listen to your gut, no matter what it says. And simply let life unfold.

Saturday, Six of Cups: Another repeat! If I didn’t know better, I would think I did not shuffle. But I do know better. A great day to participate in an activity you used to enjoy as a child. Being with old friends, playing games, anything that’s reminiscent of your younger years, is especially sweet. I hope you enjoy it.

Sunday, Nine of Cups reversed: Even reversed,  a very sweet card. I see this as not being a perfect day, but a damned good one. Maybe the good news doesn’t come in, but you see an encouraging sign. Like that. It’s an encouraging kind of day. And I’ll take it wherever I can get it.

Overview/advice: Eight of Wands: There is still movement! Things are shifting quickly and it may feel like it’s been up in the air for-ev-er. But the dust has not yet settled, and we’ll  have to wait to let it settle as we go forward. Just know, it’s underway.

Affirmation: In my appreciation, I offer no resistance. This makes me think about people who have trouble accepting compliments. Maybe that’s you. If somebody says, “I love your outfit,” do you argue? Do you tell them that it’s old, it doesn’t look good on you, blah, blah, blah? Well, stop it! Practice just saying, “thank you.” It’s kinder to the complimenter–accepting that verbal gift–as well as kind yourself.

If you have something going right in your life, don’t say, “That’s nice but…it won’t last/it’s not enough/it could be better/this other thing is still messed up/I’ll never make it/etc.” Stop that!

Instead, appreciate it and then put a period at the end of that sentence. Period. Okay? Period. We all have bad that has to be dealt with in life. It’s enough already. But how many of us readily accept the good?  Don’t resist the good.

[bctt tweet=”Accept life’s good without disclaimers. #quotes”]

There are enough worries and pain and difficulty to go around, without  looking for it, let alone trying to morph gifts into crap. Just accept the damn presents already.

How gracefully do you accept the good?

Climb Little Goat: Weekly Tarot Forecast, Jan 11 – 17 , 2016

We’ve got a New Moon in Capricorn (9th) and the Goat vibe is palpable right now.  And this sucker is setting off all kinds of cosmic triggers. There is a definite shifting of gears.

And I’d tell you what this experience is like for me, but don’t know that I can in a comprehensible way. Words seldom fail me, but lately, they’ve felt damned inadequate. And when I try to use my words anyway, well, they often haven’t hit their mark.

The general impression I have, though, is like the past and present and future are all sort of coalescing into a very trippy piece of performance art.

What the Hell, Universe?

We’ve got a few repeats from last week. My overall impression of the coming week is climb, climb, climb. Keep doing your thing! The appearance of two Knights and two Pages is notable, though. Be on the lookout for both messages, and quick turnarounds of situations (and probably, moods) in the coming week. Keep on task, keep making plans, and take your time executing. One foot in front of the other, little mountain goat.

Monday, Page of Cups reversed: Monday blues? Don’t get hung up on it. If you stay busy, and keep bringing your attention back to task, you be able to get through just fine. Maybe watch a nice movie when you can swing it. Or a bath. Prescription: Bath!

Tuesday, Knight of Pentacles: Keep double checking your facts! Mercury is still retrograde. Detail work pays off. So keep doing it.

Wednesday, Judgment reversed: Not a good day to declare war, or bang down the gavel. Not all  relevant information has come to light. So withhold judgment. Just do your thing. Not all the facts are in, so no jumping to conclusions.

Thursday, Knight of Wands: This would be a great day to go for a run. Be active, make something, cook. It’s a physical day. So it drives any physical tasks that you have. Stay focused, creative. And try to engage your passion somehow during the day. Your fire burns bright, so make use of it.

Friday, Three of Pentacles: You can pull everything together today. Like a master project planner. All the little bits and pieces are a lot more clear today. Yes obviously, Mercury is still retrograde, so not all is fine and dandy in terms of executing new plans. But you sure can work on them and review them. And Friday would be a very productive day to do that.

Saturday, Six of Wands reversed: Yes, you can get some stuff done today. But it’s not gonna be as much as you planned or wanted to. If you can accept that going in, you’re gonna be much happier with the results.

Sunday, Page of Swords: Words have power today. Even messages that you didn’t necessarily think somebody was gonna get, will probably come through clearly. Potential for bluntness, so be aware of the emotional impact. But strong communications happening today.

Overview/advice, the Fool reversed: Take your time! There is no great rush to hop right in. It’s like the  an artificial sense of urgency is coming and going throughout the course of the week. You don’t need to jump on anything before you feel competent to do so. If you jump the gun, you have the potential for regrets and some type of loss. To take your time making your determinations. Yes, you will get started. Eventually. But don’t rush it.

Affirmation: We are all co-creators within a diverse universe. Everything that happens in your life becomes a part of you: you have a piece of the experience, and the experience has a piece of you entwined. So often, we tend to think that everything is all about us, or not at all about us. And it’s neither, really.  We don’t have full creative license to decide what sort of obstacles we face, but we do have the ability to write our own parts to a large extent.

Write a part you can be proud of, the way you handled yourself and your challenges.
