Slow but Still Going: Weekend Flow Tarot, July 19 -20

weekend flow tarot

Well, if that ain’t some weekend cards for you…we’ve got Pentacles (inverted), Swords (ouch!) and a Major, inverted to go with. My overall sense of these cards is again, trudging through mud. Maybe knee-high instead of waist-high. Slow but still going.

Saturday, Present – Page of Pentacles Reversed: This is suggesting to me it’s difficult to be grounded, stay in the moment and get things done today. Details escape notice. Attention span flutters. So I’d plan a schedule light on demanding, precision oriented work if at all possible.

Sunday, Heart of the Situation – 6 of Swords: Maybe part of the reason things are hard right now is the distraction factor. This card tells of being in the middle of a difficult transition. It’s a card of movement, progress, but that progress has definitely had a cost. There is room to feel optimistic you’re on your way to better, though. It’s definitely a hopeful (if tired and battered) vibe.

Overview/Advice – The Star Reversed: Dreaming is awesome, but don’t get carried away with it. If everything has to be a particular way for you to feel like you’re moving ahead, you’ll be disappointed. There is NO WAY reality can ever hold a candle to fantasy. There are no bodily functions in fantasy…

Affirmation: Spread your wings! “Do not hold back right now, the timing is perfect and you are ready to soar.” So maybe everything doesn’t perfectly fall together the way you envisioned. Doesn’t mean you’re not on the right track! It’s a time to keep moving, taking calculated risks, and most of all, give yourself permission to accept the good that comes in your life.

Is this working for you? What do you see?

Are You Getting the Message? Mercury and the Page of Coins

With the current sky (Mercury/Neptune action), thought I’d pull up some more Page of Pentacles communication love from some old work for you all…

When I was a kid, my mom often said, “Do as I say, not as I do.” It was one of her catchphrases that eternally frustrated me. It did not compute! Earthy bundle of goodness that I am, I expect what you say for me to do and what you do yourself to match. That’s only logical, right?

Mom wasn’t buying it. She was invoking a parental authority prerogative, I guess.

The Page of Pentacles (or Coins) is associated with Earth (pages) in Earth (pentacles), sometimes expressed as “Earthy part of Earth.” Ha! Pages often refer to communication, so inverted, you may want to look at disconnects in the communication process.

Different people, different charts, will hear messages best communicated different ways. The Page of Wands (Fire) communicates with passion, heard loudest by those with Mercury in a fire sign. Page of Cups (Water) communicates emotionally—arguments based on emotion convince Mercury in water folks. Page of Swords (Air) intellectualizes, just as Mercury in air signs look for the dispassionate, logical arguments. And the Page of Earth looks at tangible action as the overriding method of endorsing a message, as Mercury in Earth signs will tend towards.

Not so very long ago, I started following politics. My husband is a die-hard newshound and watches the events of the world closely, and some of it rubbed off. My good fortune was that this interest hit in time for that Saturn-Uranus opposition, when political discussion hit new levels of rancor. Ugh! But as uncomfortable it has been at times, learning to hear others’ messages is something that I needed to master, and I think I’ve made progress. It’s essentially picking up a new language.

The inverted Page of Pentacles reminds me to check to see if I’m really HEARING others. Some don’t communicate the way I do. I still choose to place more weight on what people do than what they say (being a Mercury in Earth gal), but a different communication style is not automatic license to discard the message. You get a lot more out of this trip if you are willing to tune into a variety of stations. You know? It also reminds to me be aware of my own communication. While I expect my actions to speak for themselves, someone else may need to feel it or understand it in a different way.

What messages persuade you most readily? Can you see it in your Mercury?
