Multiple Choice Realities: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 2 – 6

Weekly Flow June 2

I got a request to bring back the Deck of 1000 Spreads, so I thought I’d see how it fit with the weekly flow for the next couple of weeks. Like each day’s card, the affirmation card and an overview card I drew, I pulled the positional cards as a divinatory draw.

As I look over this spread, there’s no element that leaps out at me as dominating the mood, although we have a couple in the Cups suit. But looking at this as a whole, I see a week where HOW YOU THINK has a major impact on HOW YOU FEEL. Not that the idea doesn’t always apply to some extent, but especially now. There is a lot of choice implied here, with outcomes in the balance.

ASTRO REMINDER: Do your last minute pre-Mercury retro stuff now, early in the week! The week will probably start to wonk out before the weekend, so keep procrastination to a dull roar.

Monday, King of Swords reversed as Hopes and Fears: I’m seeing worries that if you set boundaries, you’ll get kicked to the curb. My question for you is, “Would a station curbside be preferable to remaining without the freedom to honestly set boundaries?” Don’t agree to what you’re not willing to provide here in order to appease. You won’t get much sympathy later. Make sure you’re absolutely as good as your word—which would suggest being judicious with your word. Because you can bet your ass somebody will quote you.

Tuesday, Page of Cups as Health: Pay attention to your mood, folks! It can make you sick OR or well today. Relaxation, music, and time around water is helpful in soothing a troubled heart. Drinking or chocolate, both approved if you don’t go nuts with it already.

Wednesday, Four of Pentacles Reversed as Advice: What have you been afraid to consider? Consider it. What’s your definition of stable? Is that accurate? Do something brave today if you get the opportunity presented. Let go of something outdated, something that doesn’t fit anymore. It can be a pair of shoes, a companion, a self-assessment, or a view of reality. Fear is like a ball and chain that won’t let you fly.

Thursday Wheel of Fortune Reversed as Future Life: Don’t count on just good luck to get you through. But don’t assume all bad luck, either. You win some, you lose some, you know? This reminds me of the idea, you don’t always get what you want, but you do get what you need. (Cue the Stones.)

Friday, Queen of Wands as Negative Influences: If you’re too caught up in your own opinions, you’ll not only not hear anyone else’s, but they won’t bother sharing them with you. This can give the mistaken impression your world feels exactly as you do. Dismissiveness isn’t a character strength.

Overview, Six of Pentacles: A little trust and a little faith goes a long way. You may once again be triggered a bit by childhood experience this week. That’s okay, so long as you recognize it for what it is. And why not consciously bring up some of the good stuff you got from way back when in the process? The totality of experience is never all good or all bad, but oft times we focus on one end or the other of the stick. No need to be blindly optimistic or insufferably inconsolable. You do the best you can with what you’ve got to work with, and you stay busy making things better and enjoying the Hell out of what you have to be grateful for.

Affirmation: I have the ability to direct my own thoughts. This kind of speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

How’s your week looking?

03/01/14: Muddled Thinking / Page of Cups Rx

Page of Cups Rx

Page of Cups Rx paired with “Mind” suggests emotions have likely muddled thinking. The thinker may not be in the least bit aware of the fact.

“Good idea to factor this in,” Dixie says softly, with a knowing look. She’s aware you won’t “hear” loud now, and over-sensitivity can make loud painful. But she still says this, because you never can tell when the understanding may come in handy.

12/20/13: Teeter-Tottery! / Page of Cups Rx

Reversed Page of CupsThe reversed Page of Cups leaves me still feeling very teeter-tottery. (Yes, that’s an actual phrase. You know because I just used it on the internet, damn it. Don’t make me cry with your grammar Nazi-ing now.)

While yesterday may have been populated by poked-bear growls, today I’m thinking waterworks is likely as not. Followed by bouts of mania. Up and down, up and down!

If you didn’t already learn about tetter-tottering on the playground, I’ll clue you in now—best to let go and enjoy the ride as much as you can, all the while understanding you have no control over what the kid on the other side of the plank does, man.

It’s not about you.

I’m sticking with my tried and true advice here: tend your own garden and sneak a nap in there if you’ve got the opportunity. Kids get cranky without naps.

11/30/13: Thank You Heart / Page of Cups

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” –Helen Keller

Helen Keller understood the Page of Cups.

Thanksgiving may be over, but that’s no reason to toss aside the practice of gratitude. Feeling love and thanks literally lifts your vibration.

It’s a good day to have a “Thank You Heart.”

I have a lot to be grateful for, and am always glad to remember that.

Can you find something be grateful for today?

11/21/13: Allure of the Contact Buzz / Princess of Cups

Princess of Cups

Damn, we’ve gotten a lot of watery cards here lately. Haven’t we? Or is it just me? The Princess of Cups (aka Page of Cups) is slosh. Today I’m thinking feeling leakage. Like somebody gets their emotions all over you, or maybe you get yours all over somebody else. Hey, it happens.

I would say today, spend what you can either off to yourself or do your best to be near people with whom you have a solid history. It’s good to have some credit built up between folks when things get messy, you know? I’m thinking safety and comfort comes strongest in the form of family, be it blood or freely chosen bonds.

I will add, however, that regardless of what leaks where, the antidote is always the same: compassion. However for you sloshy folks, let me reiterate an important distinction: compassion does not equal compulsion. You can feel for a person and still completely detach from their issues. You dig?

This is hard. I’m a parent, I know! See a problem, solve the problem. Except we have no business doing this if it’s not our problem.

In other words, you can not judge the morality of an addict, genuinely feel for their pain and—here’s the important part—NOT absorb it as your own and not try to solve it.

Sometimes not doing is the kindest act of all, because it’s saying, “I have faith in your ability to solve your own problems.” Don’t get mired in a contact buzz.

You feeling this?!

11/16/13: Emotional Binge / Page of Cups

Page of Cups Morgan-GreerThe night my husband proposed to me, I literally felt like I was floating. I was so happy! It was a type of out-of-body experience. I kept checking my feet to see if they were physically touching the ground. And no, I’m not speaking metaphorically.

I checked my feet a lot that week.

And there were the days we had kids move back home. Happy and sad and worried and relieved and tired and excited all at the same time. You don’t know how it’s going to work out, but the feelings are intense.

These are just a couple Page of Cups days from my life. The Page is emotional, intense, and not too clear-headed. It’s like being drunk. And while some binges are happy binges and some are sob-fests, none are clear-headed.

It looks to be a watery day, intensely emotional.  Now “emotional” is neither good nor bad in and of itself. It just is.

Do bear in mind what you feel very intensely in this moment may not be what you feel very intensely in two hours. Or two minutes. It varies. Think of it like tying one on. Beware the drunk dial, you know?

Take it all in, but have a healthy portion of perspective set aside for tomorrow. I doubt you’d be able to consume it today.

Are you feeling the waves?
