Being You: Tarot Forecast, August 24 – 30, 2015

I am very, very blessed to be around people who love and accept me as I am. Of course, that didn’t happen in a vacuum. I had to actually BE who I am, not hide it, in order to find it. And it didn’t happen overnight. It took me a long time, even to work up the courage to admit to me who I was in many regards. Recognizing what’s you and what’s not, finding those bits and pieces of your soul that you’ve maybe lost track of? That’s on my radar at the moment and it’s in this week’s forecast, too.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. –Ralph Waldo Emerson

All journeys are ultimately personal ones. We may walk hand in hand with another. We may have friends and companions, cheering us on (or not so much, unfortunately). But we each own our own life, and all paths are singular in that regard.

August 24 - 30 Forecast

This week features all the Tarot suits, so we’re running the gamut of energy flavors–but the cards are all Minor Arcana. That suggests to me that any challenges we face are more likely to be of the day-to-day variety than the life-changing-forever variety. So if you’re having a rough go, you may want to give it the 5-year test: “How much will this moment matter in five years?” Follow that up with, “What’s truest to myself?” Keep it in perspective.

Monday, Emotional Loss – Turning In, Four of Cups: Today has “bittersweet” written all over it. I’m getting a very melancholy, moody sensation around the day. Take a few minutes to tune inward, and just let whatever feelings are there, be there. Don’t grasp or push. Just let them be present,, feel them and allow them wash through you. Some challenges are not mastered through fighting–but through yielding. Turn up the Yin.

Tuesday, Harmony (Base and Throat Chakras) – The Outsider, Five of Pentacles reversed: Unpopular opinion? Out of step with those around you and feeling insecure over it? That’s what we’ve got, although with the card reversed, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say you’re not as far removed from your community as it may appear. Be secure in speaking your truth you’re likely find others thinking the same thing. They just weren’t brave enough to say so.

Wednesday, The Waiting Game – Fighting, Knight of Swords: Potential for conflicts born out of impatience and anxiety. Thoughts and mental activities drive the conflict so if you’d like to reduce the ouch factor, look for a perspective shift. Expect to be subject to impatience and some critical remarks that are SO not about you. (After all, if they were really about you, could you have read about them in a Tarot forecast?!)

Thursday, New Beginnings – Guidance, Three of Pentacles: Ah, this is a delight to see! Creative flow is on tap, along with a healthy stream of Divine inspiration. You know the drill: meditation, quiet time in nature and prayer are ways to access that stream of awesome. Look for this energy plug-in for an infusion of brilliance wherever you are seeking a fresh start. Go get you some!

Friday, Love Begins – Understanding, Page of Cups: In dealings with loved ones and inner circle, focus on your love first. As in, before you try to figure something out, before you try to work out any conflict, focus on the love. Great night for a date, if you’re into that sort of thing. Also good money day potential.

Saturday, Stand Your Ground – Success, Six of Wands: Pretty clear, no? Stick to your guns and so long as your cause is righteous, the outcome is good. Woot!

Sunday, Conflict and Defeat – Moment to Moment, Two of Pentacles: You win some, you lose some. Be gracious whichever side of the equation you are on and deal with just right now, what’s on your plate to be addressed at the moment. Generosity is in order.

Overview/Advice, Victory & Success – Experiencing, Three of Wands reversed: Yes, I know. This week (or this life?) hasn’t gone as planned. But you wanna make something good out of it anyway? BE PRESENT. Be there, completely. Don’t zone out of full consciousness when it’s hard or the lessons tastes a little bitter or life gets a little heavy. Stay present. This is how you “win” at life. And here? Winning means getting as much out of it as you can. Don’t wait until something big forces perspective on you. Foster perspective now by staying present.

Affirmation: I trust my inner wisdom. Part of being present is attending to those little feelings, that quiet little voice inside us. Here’s a note: the more you attend to it, the louder it gets. It takes some dedication to be able to tell the difference between inner wisdom and plain ol’ mind. But there are ways to distinguish. The first way is working on quieting mind. Mind never shuts up–or at least, mine doesn’t like to shut up. The second way is feeling checks–inner wisdom often gives you a “click” or “that’s true” feeling, inside. A mini aha moment, a knowing.

Inner wisdom gives a click or 'aha' feeling, like fitting a piece into a puzzle. #woowoo Click To Tweet

Break up and Date up: Weekly Tarot Flow, April 6 -12

Weekly Tarot April 6, 2015

This week reads like a breakup, but the week ends with a new date. Like in real life, the new date doesn’t tend to show up until after the breakup. So bear that in mind if you’ve got some letting go to do.

Looking over this combination as a whole, it speaks of fresh starts. Not a shock coming after an eclipse/full moon, a huge time of release. You have to let go of the reality you have to make room for a new one, y’know. Monday and Tuesday, there’s an burgeoning awareness of emotional complications. Wednesday is cutting free day. Thursday and Friday allow for regrouping and reconnecting with your people. And the weekend is positioning to begin anew. Very poetic! Passions appear to be an overall theme to the coming week, so keep an eye on yours, m’kay?

Monday, Fertility –  Page of Cups: Whatever happens today is born of (and in) the heart. I’m expected it to be an emotionally sensitive day, as the Page of Cups isn’t known for thick skin. But there is a point to the touchy-feelies here. In particular, do gut-checks to identify feelings, Don’t ask yourself what makes sense, ask yourself how you FEEL about what’s going on. That is going to give you a lot more information. And if your feelings aren’t quite what you expect? Examining your emotions is a fruitful activity today.

Tuesday, Passion Ignited –  Five of Swords reversed: What is worth fighting for? Because if you know that, you also know what is NOT worth fighting for. Both are quite valuable tidbits. Of course different people have different convictions and different passions. But we don’t choose what everybody else does or feels. We only direct ourselves.

Wednesday, Emotional Withdrawal –  Three of Swords: Today virtually screams LET IT GO! Seriously. Step back and you know, if there is sadness there, allow it. Take some time to yourself and allow that distance.

Thursday, Intuition –  Knight of Pentacles: Act on your instincts, intuitions and “funny little feelings” in the real world. Make physical, concrete decisions and take real-world action on those little sparks of divine insight today.

Friday, Spiritual Union –  Three of Cups: Spend time connecting with your people. There’s no replacement for love, one of the most healing powers in the universe.

Saturday, Awareness –  Ten of Pentacles: Taking charge of your own life pays off in both tangible and intangible ways. You CAN do this!

Sunday, New Beginnings –  The Moon reversed: Opportunity to start over with more honesty, less crazy. You’re in, right?

Overview/Advice –  Knight of Wands: You’re going to live what you build. Why accept what life defaults you? Put your heart into living this week. It will help you stay true, know what’s real, and decide what’s next.

Affirmation: Lilac –  Strengthen your faith. Just because you don’t know every step from A to B doesn’t mean you’ll never get to B. Oh ye of little faith, cultivate some. You’ve made it this far, right? It’s fine to ask for direction and guidance. Just don’t expect your decisions to be made for you, because that’s not how things work. You make the call and ask for backup support for the capital-U Universe. It will come.

How’s your week looking?

Over Budget: Weekly Flow Tarot, March 16 – 22

Over Budget: Weekly Flow Tarot, March 16 - 22 1

As I write this week’s column, I’m thinking of (or maybe avoiding) looking up the metaphysical cause of allergies. My eyes are a little swollen, but I’ve put off the allergy meds for a bit because I wanted to finish writing without feeling drunk.

Somehow, that seems to fit this forecast. Blind or drunk, take your pick. Either way, my energy is over budget. :)

Look for a week in which there is an active supportive cast: we’ve got 4 court cards showing up. And it will be especially important to pay attention to your health in everyday ways, because there’s a real potential for getting run down and strung out if you don’t stay on top of it. That having been said, if you can balance out the stress with some recreation, it will help a lot.

Monday, Relationship –  Reversed Knight of Pentacles: May be a tendency to nitpick or criticize. Which, you can totally control this! Especially if you know. Don’t take it personally if it feels like someone is picking on you, and don’t unnecessarily pick on someone else. Use your powers of discrimination for good, not evil!

Tuesday, Coworkers –  Page of Cups: Aw, that’s nice! Looks like the people you team up with for tasks are supportive and helpful. There’s comfort in working together, so take any opportunities that crop up to connect with others on a project. There’s a general sense of emotional understanding in business contacts today.

Wednesday, Disappointment –  King of Pentacles: Gosh, that version of the King of Pentacles looks kinda lazy, doesn’t he? One of the downsides of this King is that he can get overly caught up in creature comforts, and sometimes miss the trees and the forest both! The disappointment here has the possibility of being related to laziness or self-involvement. I don’t know whose, but maybe you do!

Thursday, Partner –  The Emperor reversed: I totally would avoid handing out orders and edicts today. Do you really want to see if they are followed? Look more for cooperative approaches and try to reach consensus with your spouse, loved one or partner in crime for the best result today.

Friday, Clarification –  Reversed Ten of Wands: Have you (or someone around you) been running on overwhelm? Who has been trying to carry way too much? This explains the earlier part of the week in my mind. Over booking and never saying “no” catches up eventually. Today may well be “eventually.”

Saturday, Health –  Ten of Swords: Ow! Not what I’d prefer to see in the “Health” position. Okay, well, anywhere. But this is a logical follow up to yesterday. We are also in the Tarot tens, which means we’re at the end of this run. So take some encouragement from that. Rest and rejuvenate if you can. Acknowledge if you’re feeling run down and worn out. We’re talking either physically or emotionally as well. Take some vitamins and turn in early if that’s an option. Don’t push too hard.

Sunday, Negative Influences –  Two of Swords reversed: The problem is, the decision has not been made. Are you trying to hedge your bets, perhaps? Commit and commence. If it doesn’t work out, you’ll recover but at least you won’t regret missed opportunities and wasted time. Realize the hem-hawing, noncommittal approach has costs.

Overview/Advice –  Reversed Queen of Pentacles: Don’t invite the whole neighborhood to dinner. Just invite the people you really like—and the ones who actually “feed” you, too. This is the approach I’d suggest all week. Commit firmly, but not indiscriminately. You know? Calculate the costs before saying “yes” and you’ll be better able to avoid over-budgeting.

Affirmation: Play. Ah, what an lovely affirmation! There is plenty of work and responsibility showing up for this week, with worries and careful management required to navigate. So the perfect response to that is balancing out the week with some fun. You don’t need me to tell you twice, right?

Have you been feeling your energy is over budget?

Plates Overflowth: Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Feb 9 -15

 thumbnail

These cards could be talking directly about my last week. I have been completely rebuilding all my websites from the ground up out of necessity and it’s not my idea of a good time. But in the end, I’ll be a lot better off for facing it. Keep that idea in mind yourself, if you face some struggles this week.

Looking at these cards as a whole, I’m expecting a week of INTENSE. Sorry, kids! Now, I’m glad Mercury is prepping to move forward again (Feb. 11), I’m glad we’re all making progress and all. But doesn’t mean it’s easy. Not saying it’s not ultimately worthwhile, though. Just not easy.

My sincere apologies for those looking for a break, because it looks like a “plate overflowth” with plenty of hustle type of week. The good news is I’m liking the higher numbers on the cards. That’s indicative of being at the end of a cycle. Hallelujah! But I am also expecting the possibility of overwhelm. If you’re a crier, pack some tissue, man. May come in handy.

Monday, What is Hidden – Knight of Cups: Just how intensely you are feeling is NOT evident to the casual observer. Don’t be saying somebody “should have known” because they just cannot know what’s in your head and your heart today. Be sure you’re on top if it yourself and do realize your feelings are…in motion, okay? Knight energy is fast, and can quickly shift. If you don’t like how you’re feeling, give it a couple of minutes. On the plus side, the right song, artwork, a book or a movie will likely have the power to move your emotional state in short order. Take advantage if you need a boost.

Tuesday, Resolution – Eight of Pentacles: You solve problems one step at a time. Practical, physical, and careful efforts towards the goal are most effective. Whatever you’re trying to master? You’ve no doubt been steadily improving as you go. So don’t look at the time it took to get here as “wasted.” It’s not. Look at is as perfecting your processes.

Wednesday, What to Avoid – Six of Pentacles: Don’t give what you don’t have to give just to be perceived as nice or because you do not know how someone else is going to solve their problems.  Don’t lend money you do not have to share. Don’t accept responsibilities you do not have adequate time and energy to fulfill. Be prepared to say “no” today. Sometimes the most loving thing you can do is express faith in others to figure out their own lives.

Thursday, Present – Judgment: Regroup day! It’s appropriate to consider what has been going wrong, but also what has been going right. This is not about blame. It’s about understanding. It helps you know where you’re going, you know? This energy is not a ticket to the guilt trip express. It’s more an opportunity to take a deep breath and consult your map. No recrimination. Just information.

Friday, Blocking or Covering, Knight of Swords Rx: Uh oh. This strikes me as a sharp tongue. Sarcasm may get in the way of achieving your goals today if you’re not conscious or careful. Control your mouth!

Saturday, Clarification – Eight of Wands Rx: Determination you may have been awaiting is imminent. This isn’t the letter or phone call or news itself, but a knowing, it’s not going to be long before now. News is coming.

Sunday, Past Life – Ten of Wands Rx: To me, this strikes as an awareness of times you’ve undertake more than you could manage and had to let it go. Neither good or bad in itself, but instructive, no?

Overview/Advice – Ten of Swords: Ow! To me, this says overwhelm pure and simple. This looks to be a very fast moving week and at times, it’s too much stimulation. While this card can sometimes indicate a betrayal, it does not always. What it does consistently point to, however, is an apex, where whatever it is peaks, maximum capacity. It’s a difficult energy. Your best bet this week is understanding it will probably have “moments” and being prepared with distraction, pleasant activities and arranging to connect with loved ones. Does it make you happy? Indulge in joy to heal any stings.

Affirmation – It is my dominant intent to look for what I want to see. This isn’t a fear-based approach to living. It’s a goal-based approach to living. Of course, you do your work. But as you do, acknowledge progress. And notice the bits and pieces of your dreams materializing in your daily, waking life. That turns it up.

We’ve got this. In some ways, these kinds of weeks are very encouraging to me because when you have this much motion, you also have progress. It can be uncomfortable, stressful and sometimes, upsetting. But it’s with a point! I am more than willing to deal with discomfort, so long as there is a point.

Are you running around with an overflowing plate?

Living Intentionally: Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Feb 2 – 8

thumbnail

How appropriate: Mercury Retro giving us a weird, blur-fest image. But you know, it’s the image I had to work with. And this retrograde has been a BEAR, I must say! I am working with what I got. I am getting stuff done and my stuff is working, but without exception, it’s totally not the “stuff” I’d intended to get done. You know?

I’m betting you do!

It looks to be an interesting week, with the first part concerned with identifying what doesn’t quite fit, and the last part with changing that. I believe the changes will be helpful overall, but perhaps a little bittersweet at the same time. Think like graduating from school, or leaving a job, or moving. It might be the best thing, great overall, but with the shift, there’s also a sense things won’t be the same anymore. It looks like that, this week.

Monday, What is Hidden – 3 of Wands: Nobody can see exactly how much effort—and expectation—lies beneath a casual glance. Be conscious of your own unspoken expectations, because they could color your behavior in unexpected ways if you’re not cognizant.

Tuesday, Unconscious Desires – Three of Cups Rx: Looking for some more space? Have a previously unacknowledged drive to lose some dead weight in your social circle? This strikes me as feeling out-of-time with companions, or perhaps a desire to become more out-of-time.

Wednesday, Future Life – Five of Swords: Fight for what’s right. As it plays out, you can expect to win. Woot!

Thursday, Crossing – High Priestess Rx: Life is complicated by failing to listen to that inner voice.  If you cannot hear it, you NEED quiet time, away from distractions competing for your attention. If it doesn’t arise naturally, mindfully create it. The urge to move (which is likely) coupled with an inability to hear your inner guidance adequately is not an advisable mix. You need to either 1. Find a connection to your inner radar before acting or 2. delay action.

Friday, Outcome – Temperance Rx: Oil and water will never mix; sometimes a decision has to be made. Aside: there could be a drive to overindulge afoot tonight as well. A drink is fine, but if you’re out and about, see to it there’s a designated driver before you start pounding down the happy juice, okay? Stay safe out there!

Saturday, Crowning Influences – The Hierophant Rx:  Traditional ends may be achieved via nontraditional approaches. Or vice versa. Flexibility is definitely an asset here. No judging. Keep an open mind.

Sunday,  Cons – Two of Pentacles: This card is pretty self-explanatory. Expect plenty on your plate, with possibly competing interests to manage here.

Overview/Advice – Five of Cups: This is not a happy overview card! I’m thinking by looking at the rest of the week there are definitely adjustments over the course of the week, new coordinates being laid. Connections or situations may crop up that just don’t work anymore, like favorite shoes you’ve outgrown. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to abandon everyone or everything you love, but you very well may experience a loss. If so, allow yourself to feel sad! That’s the best way to work through the feelings.

Affirmation – I practice the Science of Deliberate Creation. I won’t go all “Law of Attraction” on you here, despite my choice of Oracle cards. I will just say this week, don’t live by default. THINK about what you want, and move in accordance with those desires. Live intentionally.

Then again, that’s never inappropriate advice.

Do you try to live intentionally?

Life’s White Spaces: Weekly Flow Tarot, Dec. 22 – 28

Tarot Dec 22 -28

Happy Solstice/New Moon! There is unquestionably some magic on tap, but it’s a Capricorn new moon. So you have to turn on the faucet yourself.

This looks to be a very transitional week. I’m reminded of cleaning out a closet to make way for new clothing, or clearing out a room so someone can move in. Looking at next week as a whole, it strikes me as a mix of emotion and action. But the twist is that most of the “action” potential is rooted in inaction. Big happenings are settling into life’s white spaces—what’s not is as important (or more so) than what is. It’s what you are not doing, not saying, not forcing, that opens up the room to allow. Even saying that is making me feel all existentialist or something. But let’s hit the highlights, day by day.

Monday, Question – The Hanged Man: The question here is one of inaction. Maybe not what you should do, so much as what you should leave alone. For any situations where you are feeling unsure, faith and allowing situations to play out is the recommended strategy.

Tuesday, What to Take from the Past – Page of Cups: Strong, loving heart energy is what you want to access today. Jaded and loving don’t mix. Look a for a pure, uncomplicated, and heart-centered approach. No finesse or relationship management required or desired. I won’t say it’s necessarily easy. It requires a sometimes staunch faith to execute. Some might call this naïve or simplistic. I call it potent, very potent energy.

Wednesday, Hobbies and Talents – Four of Cups: Pastimes and activities you enjoy are a form of meditation. They definitely allow a different perspective. These kinds of activities today may alert you to what you’re missing as much as what you have. You don’t have to seek these answers, by the way. The act of losing yourself in personal expression creates space in your head and your heart, not filled up with daily bustle. It provides a contrast so the points can be more readily perceived.

Thursday, What to Avoid – Four of Wands reversed: Merry Christmas! Advice? Be extra respective of other’s partners and family, even if you don’t feel all that enthused. Not the day to suggest a divorce to anybody! Now maybe this is common sense on a day people often spend with family or maybe not, but the reversed Four of Wands suggests not to disrupt any apple carts. What you don’t say counts! It’s also an important day to honor commitments.

Friday, Co-Workers – High Priestess: The High Priestess is another one of those between-the-lines energies. In the position of co-workers, it would suggest an unspoken understanding related to people you are partnering with. This could be work of course, project related. But it doesn’t have to be. It can speak to any flavor of joint project. Partners may know more than you think they do. Listen for what’s not said. If you are in doubt regarding your own behavior with co-workers, wait, hold back or remain silent. This is another example of the white spaces.

Saturday, Pros – Strength reversed: It’s interesting to find Strength reversed in the “Pros” position. I’m going to say having limits as to time, energy and resources is actually helpful today. It allows you to be human, and encourages you to grant yourself permission to let go of some things in order to direct your resources into others. Your strength shows up via energy freed by what you are not doing. White spaces.

Sunday, Resolution – Nine of Wands reversed: Problems are resolved via not being the last holdout! Stubbornness is not helpful today. Yesterday, we looked at how much was too much. Today, let the “too much” part go. That’s the resolution.

Advice/Overview – Chariot Reversed: Avoid singled-minded focus (read: myopic). The Chariot is indirect anyway. Reversed, it’s so indirect as to be confusing.

AffirmationClaim Your Boundaries: I spoke to someone recently about their circle, and how it’s shrinking. I had a rather vivid image, of a circle around the person, getting smaller and smaller. I don’t think of this as inherently bad. It’s like extract, the essence being accessed. The energy is not so watered down. Reducing a sauce by cooking it down, you know? You allow the heat and time to do it’s work. That’s what this coming week is about. New moons are for starting new projects, new energy patterns, but an inherent component of a new energy pattern is continuing, day by day, to release existing patterns. You have to have white space before it can be filled. Boundaries management is always a vital skill. But for this week, you’re not trying to direct the entire orchestra of everyone in your life. You’re not off to save the world or find the “magic right words” to teach kindness to someone on the internet. You are only regulating yourself. People get confused, thinking boundaries are about regulating the behavior others. They are not…otherwise, setting boundaries would be an impossible proposition. We cannot control anybody else. But boundaries never regulate others. Boundaires specify what you allow into YOUR experience. That is much, much simpler.

Are you noting some “white spaces” in your life?
