Serpentine! Weekly Flow Tarot, Oct. 12 – 18

Weekly Flow Tarot Oct 13 - 18

I currently find myself in a very strange position: becoming successful in a venue I had given up on. It’s something I put a huge amount of energy into several years ago, doing my absolute best to make it work, but failed to turn it into what I’d envisioned. I’d let it go and (I thought) moved on. But somehow, when I wasn’t really looking, boom! Pretty much overnight this all-but-abandoned venture is now taking off and I’m in the center of an energetic swirl.

I’m still adjusting. And you know, I probably should be celebrating, but I’m not so much. I am incredibly grateful, don’t get me wrong. I know it’s a gift and I’m not one to intentionally waste gifts. But I’m also terribly confused. This is nothing like what I imagined! There is plenty of ugly that goes with the flowers. And I honestly don’t know why it showed up in my lap. There are people so much more qualified, more deserving. Who am I? That’s what I ask myself. But for better or worse, it’s here and it’s my job to make dinner out of what’s on my plate. Us woo-woo folks get just as confused by life as everybody else. Maybe more sometimes because we straddle more than one world.

But the forecast this week? Totally smacks of that vibe. Confusing success with a side of what-the-Hell?

Because it’s that time of the year, I am pulling out the Zombie Tarot for the next few weeks. This deck being who it is, I also set the intention to only read the cards upright. Reversals in this deck are unnecessarily difficult to decode for me, so I’m reading upright. Duly noting, however, that almost all the cards stubbornly appeared reversed before I put them aright. Oy! So the week is still not easy—not surprising with the pesky Mercury rx. But we do what we can, huh?

Monday, Goal  – Ten of Cups: An optimistic start to the week, with a goal of idyllic bliss. That’s nice. Kind of wish I could end the forecast right here, huh? Unfortunately, if you get a look at the picture, chaos is not too far away and there is a zombie making progress in reaching the shore. Oops.

Tuesday, What you can Change – Four of Wands: Who has a key to “your house?” Who is in your intimate circle? Who gets invited to your party? That’s what the Four of Wands is talking about to me here. What you can change is who you open your door to and let into your psyche. Choose wisely.  

Wednesday, Disappointment – Six of Wands: Since the Six of Wands is generally a card of victory and acclaim, having it paired with disappointment is an especially poignant combination. “Empty victory” comes to mind. To avoid disappointment with accomplishments, it’s a damned good idea to firmly bear in mind with what you really want to achieve. I can pretty much guarantee you, “success” looks different when you get there than it did in your head. Maybe not the main part, the meat-and-potatoes part, but the sexy, dessert, won’t-this-be-ever-so-keen-when-people-cheer-me? part. Keep your priorities foremost the whole time and you’ll know what’s up as you continue to climb the mountain.

Thursday, Problem – Three of Pentacles: We’re back to things not being as we’d planned. Life is off-script. Damn it! Work on your improv skills.

Friday, Relationship – Eight of Wands: Ah, too much going on to track! This feels somewhat frantic and confused to me. I know we’d all feel better with clear-cut, well-defined lines. Well, they ain’t there. Color pretty anyway and worry about the lines later. You’ll find them soon enough.

Saturday, What to Leave in the Past – Wheel of Fortune: I know sometimes life doesn’t work out as we’ve planned, but that doesn’t mean we’re excused from goal-setting completely. For me, the trick for effective goal setting is to focus on what I want to accomplish, the outcome more than the process. I do know the “close your eyes and hope for the best” process isn’t always advisable, though.

Sunday, Conscious Desires – The Hierophant: Oh my. This looks like a wish for somebody to just “lay it out” for us with a step-by-step how-to. I get that, I really do. But always, it’s about the individual choice. Alternatively, we could be talking an awareness of the need for alone, quiet time That would be a worthy indulgence.

Overview/AdviceQueen of Cups: Keep your emotions in check, while still honoring them. Listen to your feelings, and get quiet enough you can hear the inner voice. This looks like a week where there will be some surprises, and where staying balanced and centered requires specifically directed effort. Do I even need to say that effort is worth it?

AffirmationAqua: “Experience Peace & Calm.” Translation? Meditate! Downtime. Ground, center, devote some time to yourself and your own peace of mind.

Flexibility is key again this week. If someone shoots at you, don’t just stand wondering why on Earth they would do such a thing, when you’d never have guessed it coming. Serpentine! I have the distinct feeling those who adjust quickly, stay tuned in, and are quick to correct course when things don’t work out just so—while continuing to make rational steps towards things working out “just so”—will be the winners overall. My advice? Stay frosty and be ready to serpentine!

Damn. These cards are awfully loud and it feels like they are talking straight to me. Do you hear them talking to you, too?

Rewriting Your Childhood: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 23 – 27

Tarot Forecast, Jun 23 - 26

Mid-week bump:  This week has been…odd. I guess that’s the word for it, odd. Nothing happened, really. Nothing to speak of. But the vibe is…off. Like a video where the sound is just a little off sync, you know? Even today’s Gemini moon, which I was looking forward to, didn’t do it for me. I generally love Gemini moons. Today, I have the attention span of a 3-year-old hopped up on soda and Pixie stix.  I did the best I could with it.

And I took a mini-nap. Because one of my intentions has been to value and honor my natural rhythms. And my natural rhythm said stop trying to focus for a minute and just be…

As far as the forecast this week for me, personally, mostly I’ve just been thinking about these family issues. What being a mom means to me, how my mom and family has colored who and how I am. Wondering if I’m a good mom sometimes, butting in not too much, not too little, but “just right.”  I was one of those people that didn’t seek out becoming a mom. I wanted to play! Being a mom found me. I think I’m pretty good at it, most days. But then again, I have a reasonably high opinion of my opinion.

And I’ve been trying, really hard, to pick up more Lenormand! I enjoy the group we have and am really glad I opted for a private venue. It feels like coffee with some friends or something. Very nice vibe.

How y’all doing out there?


With the appearance of 3 Majors in 6 cards drawn, I know we’re looking at a week whose events reverberate for a long time after. I want to suggest you treat this week as sort of a microcosm of the life you’d like to build for yourself, you know what I mean? This week is like a play, and in extemporaneously acting it out, you’re writing the script for the coming months. Don’t script anything you wouldn’t like to sit through in reruns.

It’s also notable that the week is flanked with the Empress (as “What to Avoid”) and the Emperor (as “Negative Influences”). Venus and Mars will each have their say, and tend to a bit more than their say, apparently. With appearance of the Queen of Cups reversed (another maternal card), the Seven of Pentacles (in the “Friends and Family” position no less) and the Six of Cups reversed as an overview (nostalgia), it looks to be a week utterly brimming with issues having their root in childhood.

Is that a chorus of rejoicing I just heard? Har!

I just pull ‘em, I don’t pick ‘em, man.

Monday, What to Avoid – The Empress: Don’t fuss, muss or over-mother. Don’t jump into someone else’s creative process. Don’t pick up that pencil and finish the paper yourself if it ain’t got your name at the top. Meddling is a bad idea today! Take care of yourself and let others do the same. As I often say, butting out is an act of respect, demonstrating your faith in others to handle their own business.

Tuesday, Positive Influences – The Fool: Beginner’s mind and a fresh, unjaded outlook are the keys to exciting discovery. Curiosity and stepping forward without fear or preconceived conclusions take you the furthest. Consider the day an exciting experiment, and you are the scientist. No telling what will turn up!

Wednesday, Friends and Family – Seven of Pentacles: The emotional color of your inner circle relationships was planted long ago. If you feel good about how it has blossomed, awesome! If not, time to do a little weeding. But understand, we are definitely reaping what we’ve sown in this arena. Do you need to rethink your gardening plan?

Thursday, Future Life – Queen of Cups Rx: It’s not easy going forward. Emotional tides (sometimes enough to make you feel crazy) are to be expected. This is HOW you grow, so don’t think you’ll be able to sidestep it. But do know it’s temporary. What washes in, also washes out. Let it flow. A hot bath, peaceful music or a glass of wine are Dixie-approved coping mechanisms today. Drunk-dialing, not so much.

Friday, Negative Influences – The Emperor: Control freaking, a BAD idea. Dictators can expect a coup. Don’t put your foot down unless you’re okay with a potential revolt resulting. Ultimately, the person it’s most important you be able to control is yourself. But you know this!

Overview – Six of Cups Rx: Nostalgic moments from eons ago aren’t quite a magical the second time around, you know? I want to say a lot of the function of this week is learning to see our past with new eyes—adult eyes. Some bits of the past lose some of their luster looked at from an adult perspective. But some of what towered as insurmountable, you’ll find much less imposing. There’s a bittersweet feel to this process to me.

Affirmation: It is natural for my body to be well. In the context of the weekly flow, seek to heal whatever is “unwell” instead of living your life with a limp. This can be (and often is) an emotional limp, naturally. But the task this week is realizing that you don’t need to walk funny anymore. If you’ll skip the bossy-boss routine and focus on yourself, you will be able to make strides potentially releasing some very old angst. That’s worth a few scrapes over, if you ask me.

The bonus here is that your physical health may well improve for your efforts.

Do you see something different in this week?

Going with the Flow / Weekly Flow Tarot, May 11 – 17th

Bumping the weekly up so you don’t lose track.

Are y’all feeling that Scorpio moon? Wow…experiencing and getting reports from the field on very Scorpionic themes including flashbacks, grief, people from the long past showing up. My keyword for this right now is about value. I know that’s more of a Venusian concept, but I”m thinking a lot about this particular energy in terms of what’s worthwhile and what’s not. What do we want to keep and what needs to hit the compost heap.

I’m doing good, actually. I have some Scorpio and it’s comfortable energy for me. But I’m sure that’s not true for everybody, so what are you gonna do?

If you’re grappling with it, realize it should lighten up soon and look for stuff to donate or reuse. After all, that’s voluntarily expression the demand for resurrection. Or have some really dirty sex. That will work, too! Whatever you do, don’t deny the fact you cast a shadow. Because that sucker will come out one way or another. Best to know it.

If y’all missed today’s Woo-Woo Wonderful show on Magic Gardening, be sure to catch us on the reply. I’ll let you know when I’ve got captions done on it for my folks that use them.

Be well!

Weekly Tarot Forecast May 2014

Looking at the flow of the week, with about half the cards reversed there may be delays or at least slower-than-we’d-like progress. So what else is new? A good mix of elemental energy with Swords, Pentacles,  Wands and even a member of court showing for Cups. It looks fairly balanced and manageable overall.

Who else is counting the minutes until Mars goes direct (meaning progress)?

Sunday, Six of Swords Reversed – We cannot solve all our problems in a day, okay? This looks like a minor setback or temporary delay. Perhaps it’s the “one step back” that accompanies most two steps forward? Maybe it’s just the feeling of setback, too, without any real-world implications. I’m actually seeing most issues as still on track, although it may not feel like it. Don’t overreact. Yes, it may have been a choppy sea boat ride and you may be SO READY to disembark, but the cruise is not over. Maintain grace. Oh, and happy Mother’s Day!

Monday, Ten of Pentacles – A great day for connecting with family, be it blood relatives or the folks you call family. Also an excellent time to acknowledge all the good you have in your life. Gratitude is never a mistake, but the day especially resonates with that vibe. Possibility of a gift of some sort. Nice day!

Tuesday, Seven of Wands – Fight the good fight, even if you are on your own. This card always makes me think of that juncture in the Hero’s Journey where the hero turns back to his or her cohorts and says, “I have to do this part alone.” Do what you’ve got to, and do it with integrity. That’s what’s required.

Wednesday, Nine of Swords reversed – I’m seeing this as niggling (and honestly, generally unfounded) worries, a vague sense of discomfort or concern. Especially prominent at night. I want to suggest practical and emotional tactics: a to-do list for what you actually need to address, and a good movie, book, game, puzzle or song to distract your mind for the what-ifs that you don’t need to address. Once you’ve done what you can, look for a way to set it aside and get some rest.

Thursday, Page of Pentacles Reversed – A message not being heard perhaps, or maybe an unexpected bill shows up. Something is a bit off in the communication realm. Don’t panic, because there very well could be a misunderstanding. Read twice, respond once. If you don’t understand what you’re hearing, wait for clarification before acting if possible.

Friday, Queen of Cups – Ahhhhh. This is like a drink for the parched throat! Expect to find peace today, and maybe a little bliss. Tears are possible but if you do cry, expect productive tears. Psychological insights are quite accessible with this vibe. Don’t overdo it with the wine (or whine).

Saturday, Ace of Wands – Physical activity is favored, along with work on a satisfying hobby or side project. Anything that trips your passion switch will bring extra reward today. You might also be gearing up for your next project or job. Mars is going direct in a couple of days now, which means that tangles are untangling and forward motion is on it’s way. Thank goodness!

Affirmation: I release all expectations. [Sorry the pic’s blurry.] Bottom line, the Universe works the way it wants to work, not the way we want it to work. We cannot micromanage our lives, and frankly, we’d probably just muck things up if we did. It’s a time to work with the tools you’ve got on hand.

Be grass, not tree. Bend and you won’t break.

03/20/14: Submerged / Reversed Queen of Cups

Queen of Cups Rx

In Tarot, “Significator” is the the person asking the question. In other words, she represents YOU. The reversed Queen of Cups is emotional, often to the point of being unreasonable or even confused.She may be driven by feelings she barely understands or is not fully conscious of, for that matter.

Any time you see emotion way out of whack with stimulus, you can bet there’s something hiding under those waves. Keyword for the day is “submerged.” Whatever you are seeing on the emotional or intuitive fronts, consider it a sampler. A taste test. Proverbial tip of the iceberg.

And if you get a whiff of emotion from somebody around you, make the same assumption. What you’re seeing, it’s just a tiny little bit of what’s there. Don’t get drowned by misjudging undertow potential.

You feeling undertow today?

02/01/14: Roller Coaster Love Life / Queen of Cups Rx

Queen of CupsUh oh. I’m going to get complaints for this one. At least one, from a certain kid I know. Who wants to see the Queen of Cups reversed in the “Romance” department?

Oy vey.

I’m calling it as squishy day, emotional swings and likely irrational in all matters of love. So NO running off to Vegas to tie the knot, no impulse break-ups, and for God’s sake’s don’t drunk dial an ex! Possibility of intense emotional experiences regarding love life, be you paired or solo.

Please realize today’s emotions are equivalent to the weather in Kansas—if you don’t like it, wait five minutes. It will change! If you can, sit back and enjoy whatever part of the ride is enjoyable.

If your love life feeling roller-coastery?

Today, the Queen of Cups says to me, you know the truth in your heart. You feel in, deep down inside. Maybe you have feelings ABOUT it too, and that can add to the squish/fog factor. But trust the inner knowing of your heart, because it’s right on the money.

Are you feeling some truth, deep in your heart?
