02/12/13: Feely Faith / Princess of Cups

princess-cups (394x622)

Maybe those feelings are a bit…confusing. New, under-developed. Maybe you’re unsure or uncertain. This is the Princess, after all, aka the Page of Cups. She’s so full of water that she’s blue!

Or maybe she’s holding her breath, waiting for it all to pass.

That’s okay.

Feel it, whatever’s got you in it’s grip. Let the tide come in, knowing for a fact that every time it does roll in, it just as surely will roll back out. Let all those feelings wash over you, move through you, without holding on.

Even if it doesn’t FEEL right, right now. Believe that you don’t have to fight or figure it out in the moment. Know that it becomes clear, once the tide washes back out.

That, my friends, is the definition of faith. It’s worth the work of developing, if only for your peace of mind.

You have “Feely Faith”?

01/04/13: Obsessed with the Fish | Page of Cups


Y’all know I love switching up my decks. The New Vision Tarot shows us the behind-the-scenes scene, literally. Today, it’s the Page of Cups backside we’re taking a gander at here…and we see what’s around him as he ganders whole-heartedly at that fish in a cup as it were the center of his universe.

Every time he finds a new fish, “This is ‘THE’ one,” he firmly declares.

And that’s the way it stays, until it’s not.

Because the Page of Cups is too immature to have himself a soul mate, although he thinks he does. Always! But what he’s really got is a crush.

Come to think of it, many of us have our own “fish”we treat like this page—an emotional obsession, object of our complete attention, focus of preoccupation. It may or may not be romantic. It may or may not be healthy or helpful. But what is that one thing (oh Lord, I hope you don’t have a barrelful), that ONE thing, that you never let go of, cannot divert from your attention from, the all-consuming worry or passion or drama or drive that you never blink away from?

Look at that. That’s your fish. Fish tend to change periodically, but a lot depends on the Page and the fish.

Questions to ask about your fish: is it really yours? Is it truly about your life, your business, your problem or your joy? Are you going to trip over something because you are too devoted to gazing upon your fish’s intricate scaliness? Are other parts of your life or your soul being fed or poisoned by this fishy relationship?

Do you have yourself a fish? Is it tasty?

I haven’t taken down the Holiday Specials page yet, so you can get anything on there while it’s up. I will be removing the Chakra readings within a day or so, but will do the Zodiac 2013 Tarot Forecasts through the rest of January for anybody who wants one. I’ve gotten nothing but good feedback on them (and I even got to do one with the Housewives Tarot by request—how awesome is that?)!

12/05/12: Emotionally Drunk | Page of Cups rev


I remember when it hit me, clear as day: my emotional stability is largely a choice. I was bawling in the bathroom, and caught a glance of myself in the mirror.

“What on Earth are you doing, Dixie?” That’s what my reflection said to me.

Damn mirrors.

Here, we have the inverted Page of Cups. He’s a little murky. Funny thing—so many times when I photograph the Tarot Cups, my photos turn out blurry. It’s the “drunk-factor” of the Cups, I’m telling you!

Take stock of your emotional reaction. Good chance, those feelings you’ve got so many of? Yeah, those. You have a say. It’s not outside forces. It’s the belief, the thoughts, the energetic vibration that you use in creating them.

Don’t like them? Work on creating something better.

You a little emotionally drunk?

08/15/12: Emotional Resolutions | Page of Cups

20120812_142517 (418x622)

“Genius is the ability to renew one’s emotions in daily experience.” –Paul Cezanne

Ah, man. I’ve been a bit…emotional lately. Some flashbacks here and there, hard memories, squaring off with current, everyday life. What I want to create isn’t always what I have before me. Not that I’m complaining. (Well, okay. Maybe I am.) But these are the threads from which lessons are weaved. And we’ve got just the fellow to help.

Here is the lovely Page of Cups! Doesn’t it look like that fish is whispering to him the secrets of the sea? Fish swim in the depths of the water (i.e. intuitive and psychic information) and therefore have deep knowledge. And the Page can speak the fish’s language! He knows many secrets but he doesn’t necessarily understand them.

Associated with the element Earth (as a Page) in Water (suit of Cups), his specialty is manifestation of the emotional realm. He’s an artist, a dreamer and a lover. He’ll inspire and empathize, sometimes with feelings you didn’t even know you had He often shows up at the beginning of a new love relationship, and in that context can signal a strong, emotional bond is beginning to form. Pages are young energy.

But like of all the Tarot court, he’s not without challenges. Highly emotional and intuitive, he can also be over-sensitive or just plain moody. At times, he could use some of the Page of Pentacles’ practicality, or the Page of Swords’ discernment, or the Page of Wands’ toughness. No one suit has it all, after all.

As advice, the Page of Cups would have us listen closest to our hearts—our emotional responses serving as compass in making decisions. Meditation, praying, and seeking intuitive guidance would be potential expressions of his energy. Also writing it out, speaking to a loved one, or listening to music could be less etheric ways of tapping into his essence.

But also understand that FEELINGS are in major play. Rationality takes a back seat to emotions when this page is on deck, so factor that into the process. Waiting until the waves settle before committing may be in order. Since he is but a child, you can also expect the situation he speaks of to eventually mature. Consider whether the highest good would be best served by letting the Page of Cups grow up a bit.

So yeah, I know what I need to do for me. Pay attention to emotion and intuitive guidance always. But be ready to let the tide recede a bit at the same time and know, with some maturing, emotional clarity will come. Focusing primarily on emotions like love, hope and faith helps bring out the highest manifestation of the Page. I can do that.

Do you feel this Page’s presence?

07/25/12: Who, me? Triggered? | rev Temperance, Page Cups

I was a little crazed, to be blunt. Tearful and irrational. to the point that whatever was coming out of my mouth only half made sense. I knew I was overly upset but couldn’t let it go; I was up all night alternating between sobbing and anger and painstakingly trying to document that I was a decent human being. Seriously, that’s was my goal. To prove that I was a decent person.

It took my husband plainly pointing it out to me, “This is NOT you” for it to begin to sink in, how far over the top I was.

I already knew it mattered to me a lot more than I would have expected but in the midst, I hadn’t questioned it until he said something. Why did I care enough to make myself sick over it? It’s one thing be disturbed when someone you respect thinks ill of you. It’s entirely another thing altogether to feel like you’re dying inside over it.

That’s when I realized exactly how much I’d been triggered. This stuff can sneak up on you.


Reversed Temperance paired with the Page of Cups suggests the process for emotional integration of “old news” is perhaps underway but not free flowing, and at least some aspects of fitting that life experience into your worldview is young and not well-developed.

Certain experiences don’t just melt away. They may take many years—and a whole lot of work!—to integrate. There may always be a sting, an emotional limp of sorts. Being aware helps. It’s easy enough to brush off pain sometimes, try to “walk it off,” blame on on something else or otherwise dismiss it as yesterday’s news, without properly healing the underlying injury. Who wouldn’t prefer anesthesia to the wide-awake surgery, you know?

The message today is be aware of your triggers. If you find yourself significantly out of balance or out of sorts, more than you would expect from the external circumstance, that’s your cue. “What am I really bothered by? What does this remind me of?” That clues you where the pain is really coming from, and hence, how you can best manage it. Hint: recreating the situation in another venue pretty much never works. Facing the origin of the pain usually does help, though.

You have some triggers, too?

07/10/12: Leap of the Butterfly | Page and 8 of Cups

On my outside Zen/Sacred Garden coffee break, a tiny, black butterfly fluttered by.

“Are you here for me?” I asked, might have been aloud. Who knows? I was thinking, if he’s here for me, he should land on me. That’s so much more remarkable than just flying by.

I mean, I knew already he was here for me. He made himself…felt, you know? He flew around me slowly, deliberately. That’s how I recognize my animal messengers. They give confirmation in the form of a feeling.

But I still thought, it would be nice if he actually landed on me. Nice to have the external confirmation, too. And makes for a better story.

A few seconds later, he landed on my leg and sat there a good five minutes. Okay! Thank you, tiny little butterfly.


Here, we’ve got the Page of Cups (Earth in Water) and the Eight of Cups (Saturn in Pisces) from Osho Zen. What a beautiful, evocative rendition of these cards.

A long time ago, I was given a small plaque. It has a butterfly etching and the words, “Sometimes, you just have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down.” I loved it because it personifies how I intend to live. I felt very seen, you know. That’s exactly what Tarot is saying to me today.

If you want to CHANGE, to GROW, you’ve got to have the faith! Transformation doesn’t come without a surrender. Let go, follow the call of your heart and let those little drops of day-to-day concern melt away into the grander whole. Give your worries and complaints up to the divine so you can be free of their weight. Transcendence—not holding on to the old, the outworn, not bearing attachment to a particular outcome or worldview—is what makes transformation possible. Without the trust, we cannot let go.

Make no mistake—it IS work! But worthy work. Letting go is what grants freedom. I feel more free, every day I trust, every day I believe, every day I let go of my attachments and accept, in joy and gratitude, whatever life gives me. I can do this only if I hold the core belief, I get exactly what I most need.

Are you feeling (or seeing) these principles at work in your life?
