Energy Budget: Weekly Tarot, Feb 27 – Mar 5, 2017

I spend a good amount of time on social media for business. It’s goal-driven participation, but you know how that is. So much of everything there…

Oh my God, I hide so much!

It’s daily. Lots and lots and lots gets hidden or blocked. And not because there is thing one wrong with what I’m hiding. People can discuss whatever it is they want to discuss and feel about it however they want to feel about it. I am genuinely egotistical, but not so much I think I’ve cornered the market on truth or perspective. I would never want to impinge upon the freedom of others! But that doesn’t mean I have to be a participant in all of it, either.

It’s just really important to me, how I feel. I consider how I feel THE top priority in my life. It’s my job to feel as good as I can, as much of the time as I can. And to that ends, I won’t become mired in lengthy discussion of issues that are upsetting to me.

Does such avoidance make me selfish, uninformed, deluded, privileged, or otherwise derelict in my social responsibilities?

Maybe. I know for a fact, there are kind-hearted, loving people who deem it so–and that, too, is their right. Don’t care, if you want to know the God’s-to-honest truth. I love y’all but I’ve gotta make decisions for myself. Some people feel that fighting what they perceive as wrong is the only way to impact change. If that’s what you believe, then you should do that! Always do what you feel is right and I wish you well in doing it.

For me, I believe being the best person I know how to be is my greatest opportunity to contribute. So I’m doing that.

This week? People may benefit from a less direct approach across the board, too–more water, less rock. At least, consider stepping back until you’re feeling utterly stable in your own skin. Impulsiveness or brashly powering through barriers is not favored.

[bctt tweet=”Be more water, less rock. Weekly #Tarot Forecast” via=”no”]

Tarot foretells a week that remains somewhat squishy, with a mix of primarily Cups, Pentacles and peppered with some Major Arcana. We start out rough–eclipse hangover, perchance? But by the weekend (provided you played your cards right), it’s looking pretty sweet.

Overall, I keep getting themes of budgeting energy expenditures. Don’t spend what you don’t have to freely spend on any level, and prioritize managing your emotional state. That is something you ARE in charge of!  I’ll take it, ’cause really, what choice do I have anywho?

View the Full Forecast in video, here.

I liked the Queen of Swords advice last week to hit the bullet points, so I’m running with it.

Day-by-Day-Play-by-Play

  • Monday, Queen of Pentacles rx: Mind your resources and don’t spend more than what you’ve got of whatever it is.
  • Tuesday, Knight of Cups rx: Hold off with emotional dumping messages. Highly sensitive time in general and strong possibility you’ll be misheard if you communicate impulsively.
  • Wednesday, Six of Pentacles rx: Take care of your own business. Don’t hop in to try and fix for others. No charity work.
  • Thursday, Ace of Pentacles rx: Lowish energy. Don’t overspend, anything, again.
  • Friday, The Tower: Choices earlier in the week culminate. If you overdid, it will fall apart today. If you showed restraint, the crashes won’t be yours.
  • Saturday, The Chariot: Single-minded focus on what you care about, and forget the rest. Simple.
  • Sunday, Two of Cups: Great date night. Expect peace, harmony and music. Good flow today.
  • Overview/Advice, Six of Wands: It may not be obvious, but it’s all working out in the bigger picture. Appreciate what’s working and let everything else be.
  • Affirmation: Loss. Focus on what you’ve got, not what you don’t. It’s your choice, what you make bigger in your life.

Glorious Singularity: Tarot, Oct 24 – 30, 2016

The last several weeks, I’m seeing a theme in the forecasts–or maybe? The theme is in my head, my experience. But either way, it’s a valid theme.

[bctt tweet=”Focus on your own life and let others live theirs. #OnMyRadar ” username=”goddess_dix”]

Even if you think the others are crazy or stupid or deluded or clueless or careless or just out-and-out wrong. Be YOU, regardless of what others are being or doing.

I’m beginning to think, this message is why I’m here. My intention for this incarnation, is to spread the message of following your own path without judging or pushing against anybody else’s path.

Why else would I be so gloriously and singularly weird, spending so much of my time hoping to inspire others to be true to their own glorious singularity?

Sometimes we think the world would be better if everybody agreed with us. But that’s not true. The diversity–including the bits we don’t like–make for a much richer experience. Even the ugliness inspires desire for better. Everything inspires desire for better.

Our job is not to get others to conform. Our job is not to conform. Our job is to be true to ourselves, singularly. And that is more than enough. It’s glorious.

Audio Version of the Weeks Forecast

The Zombie Tarot deck loves repeats. Zombies like to shuffle. Get it?

Funny but true.

Lots of Court Cards this week, which tells us personalities will play a big role in events. A fair number of reversals–some of the expressions of personality that have impact will not be conscious behavior. There is still a lot of delusion, lies, and harsh words out there but it’s not too hard to dodge. Just pay attention to yourself and you bypass 98% of the BS and feel better in the process. Also understand, we definitely are ending the week on a high note. So traveling on the high road pays off!

Monday, Queen of Swords Rx: Be aware of your words. Don’t be in a hurry to cut someone off–in traffic, in words, in deeds, from your life, whatever. Take your time. The Queen of Swords cuts ties swiftly in general. Reversed, she can be a bit hasty. So if you’re getting the urge. set it aside for a minute. Put it on the back burner and wait, okay?

Tuesday, Seven of Pentacles Rx: This energy feels impatient, just like yesterday. All things are developing over time as appropriate. Just chill. Just because you cannot see all the progress doesn’t mean it’s not happening. Take a chill pill and all will be well.

Wednesday, Seven of Cups: The world should go home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html. It’s drunk. Confused. There’s an irrationality going around. Don’t buy into it–or fight against it, which is a lesser-known way of buying into it. And don’t go drink without a designated driver. Don’t try to fight the distortion. Let it roll over you and pass on by. This really works best. You cannot fight waves, but you can be solid and let them wash over you or you can float atop them. Those that bend will not break.

Thursday, Death: Yesterday’s distortion and upheaval from earlier this week (and before) will come to a culmination. Rotten, the not right, will be exposed. The jig is up! I don’t know what jig we’re talking. But it’s up anywho! On an individual level–stick to what you know and don’t try to control others. Just let it be.

Friday, Knight of Pentacles: Attend to the details and be meticulous. Focus on you, let your neighbors do whatever they are doing. Care for your OWN details and leave the rest.

Saturday, Knight of Swords Rx: Don’t blurt angry words, even if you have to stuff your mouth with Fritos to avoid it. Be kind with your words! The world needs kindness, you need kindness, and it just feels better for everybody.

Sunday, Six of Wands: Love wins. Kindness wins. Joy wins. All the love you’ve planted earlier this week blooms like a beautiful garden. This is an awesome day so enjoy it!

Overview/Advice, King of Pentacles Rx: Don’t try to clean up your neighbors yard or fix anybody else’s issues. Focus this week, eyes on your on paper, clean up your own room, tidy up your own life. Looking for other people’s problems is a fancy way of avoiding your own life. Stay in your own lane, keep your own house in order and let other people handle theirs. You have enough resources for yourself. Use them for yourself.

Affirmation: I am safe in the Universe. All life loves and supports me. It really IS all right. Some of what people are upset and freaking out about? It’s okay. It’s going to be okay. Yes, there are jerks out there but life is okay. All will be fine!

Take care, stay clear, be happy! Are you feeling your glorious singularity?

Edge of Something: Eclipse Week Tarot Forecast, Mar 21 – 27

Happy Eclipse.

HAHAHA!

Because, really. When is getting bowled over by the Universe feel “happy”?

But we’re talking Aries/Libra. In the realm of relationships, the me/we axis, man. It’s about the balance. It’s about FAIRNESS. It’s about justice and rightness. Keep yourself righteous, even when it’s hard, and you should come out okay. (Find some more lovely, general eclipse tips at the Astrology Zone.)

Personally, I’m doing alright. I will say that I’m finding myself suddenly revisiting some old situations, that have otherwise seemed to be set in stone. And it’s alright.

The vibe in general is like..the edge of something. Something important.

Lots of people, standing on the EDGE of something.

Even though it’s way not settled and even though I’m not sure how all will fall, I’m sporting an inexplicable faith all’s gonna turn out right in the end, just fine. Just the way it needs to.

I have no idea why I’m so convinced. But I’m not going to try to argue myself out of it.

IMG_5082

I’m seeing this week as wildly fluctuating in terms of emotional tone, totally edgy. Sensitive. Raw and real. That’s not good, not bad. But be aware and build self-care into your plans. Other people are playing a prominent role here with several court cards, and we have a couple majors to emphasize the point–what happens will be around for some time to come. So make it count, folks.

Are you ready?!

Monday,  Flowering, Queen of Pentacles reversed: Coming into our own stride, but not quite there yet. It’s a process, yeah? A process. I expect to see results, although the project as such is still unfinished.

Tuesday, Breakthrough, Justice: It balances in the end. Sometimes, the process isn’t pretty but the end result is worth it. Expect “just rewards” to show up, whatever that may be.

[bctt tweet=”Getting what you deserve can be gift or curse. You get to pick.”]

Wednesday, Success, Six of Wands: A good day! Recognition for successful endeavors and leadership skills. This is a nice one for Eclipse day. Enjoy it!

Thursday, Compromise, Six of Pentacles: It needn’t be all for your desires, or all for your responsibilities. Break it up–time, energy, money. A little for work, a little for fun. A little for me, a little for thee. No winner-take-all here. Look for the win/win and you’ll achieve your ends.

Friday, The Creator, King of Wands reversed: Get in touch with your creative flow today. It mitigates stressors and helps you connect with yourself on a deeper level.

Saturday, Participation, Four of Wands reversed: Decide what you want your participation to be, and pull back from what doesn’t fit with your life, or anything you don’t feel good about.

Sunday, Thunderbolt, The Tower reversed: Some disruption is likely, but the end of the world, it’s not. Don’t mistake it for such. Back off anyone overblowing issues and overreacting, as that crap’s contagious. Deep breath and plan b, to the rescue.

Overview/Advice – Adventure, Page of Pentacles reversed: Don’t be afraid to try something new, but make your risks measured and gradual. Adventure is definitely calling. And it’s fine to answer. It’s great to answer! Just put on your walking boots and check your map, before you go out the door.

Affirmation – Sensitivity, Archangel Haniel: “You are extra-sensitive to energies and emotions right now. Honor yourself and your feelings.” Well, if that doesn’t describe an eclipse week, I don’t know what does! I can’t add much to that. Honoring yourself and your feelings? Always good advice.

How are you doing? Stay safe and sane out there! ♥

Leveling Up: Weekly Tarot Forecast, Feb 29 – Mar 6

“It’s intense. Not bad necessarily, but very intense.”

She had that deer-in-the-headlights,-what-the-Hell-is-that-supposed-to-mean look.

I was talking about the upcoming eclipses, and how it’s felt since the recent full moon in Virgo.

I wasn’t trying to be scary but, you know. People would prefer sunshine and daffodils.

“Well, you know all these changes you’re going through recently? It’s really hard right now. Stressful. The changes are not bad–they’re for the better in the long run. All of them are good. The work you’re doing now is very hard, but it’s going to a good ends. And it all counts! Next week, you’ll have made a lot of progress from this week.”

She agreed.

“And I’m in the same boat, with my projects. It’s intense. Overwhelming sometimes. But with a purpose and a payoff.”

And this, my friends, is what this next week is about. Might not like the feelings now–most of us might be more than a little tired. But the point of all that effort is firmly intact. And it’s worth it.

We’re in the process of leveling up. That means the stakes are a little higher, and the work is a little harder. But the rewards are also a little sweeter. Like it or not, matters not to the Universe. So do your best and insulate yourself.

Oh, and one more thing? With Eclipse season upon us, what we’re doing now, what we’re working through has IMPACT. So…do your best to do your best, okay? Meaning, don’t cash in your integrity for an apparently easy shortcut or gain.

Do the RIGHT THING, whether you think you’re being watched or not. It always matters, but now? It matters even more than usual. Pressure is high and many situations will intensify to the crux. You want to be above reproach if anything happens to come crashing down in your lap, you know?

March 8 is the first Eclipse and it’s gonna be a doozy. Don’t say I didn’t give y’all a heads up on this…

20160213_171944_HDR

Ah, the cards. I’m seeing evidence of the incoming eclipse and general, highly sensitized astro-weather out there, in next week. I am expecting emotions to be veritably crackling and largely visceral, especially the first part of the week. Thursday through the weekend looks much easier to manage. But Tuesday and Wednesday are high alert days, just so you know.

Monday, Judgement Reversed: Who do you most often blame when something goes wrong? Other people? Yourself? Default patterns are usually less-than-useful. Potential of missing important information due being wedded to a particular narrative. Keep an open mind in anticipation that the story may be quite a bit different than you initially thought.

[bctt tweet=”Whose fault is much less relevant than, ‘what now?’ #tarot”]

Tuesday, Three of Swords: Ow! Sorry, there’s no pretty spin for the Three of Swords. This card shows a loss, and the hurting over that loss. Now, since this is a public forecast, I can certainly wish this feeling is not personal to you! But there’s a good chance, it’s going to be personal to somebody–including maybe somebody you interact with. So step lightly with compassion, and carry tissue. Kindness is the order of the day.

Wednesday, Ten of Swords: Too much! The Ten of Swords shows up when we feel overwhelmed, betrayed, tapped out and back-stabbed. It’s the rock-bottom feeling we’re talking. Although there is a smidge of a bright side with this card–no place to go but up. Schedule extra downtime today and make space in your schedule for self-care. Time to tend to your wounds and get yourself a good night’s sleep. Everything will unquestionably look better in the morning.

Thursday, Six of Wands: Yes! A rebound! Take a deep breath, put on your ass-kicking shoes, and go forth to face the challenges of the day. You have the capacity to conquer them.

Friday, Queen of Wands: Focus and determination in equal mix with passion is the recipe for success. Not bull-headedness…unless it’s something you really need to be bull-headed about. Some issues are worth digging your heels in over, you know? And as always with the Wands Royalty, be sure you’re not being a control-freak all over other people. Only control-freak yourself, man.

Saturday, Page of Cups: A little case of the feels, today. Be kind, and spend time with others who are kind. Loving energy always heals but today? Loving kindness is super-charged. Take advantage.

Sunday, Ace of Swords Reversed: Plans probably won’t go as planned. This is not a huge problem–we’re talking loose plans or early stages here. So lean into your power of flexibility to make up any lost ground. You can save the day with quick thinking.

Overview/Advice – The Magician: To make this week work, attending to your thought processes and focusing on what you DO have control over will be paramount. I find the Magician a very encouraging card in this position, because he reassures me, people will indeed have the magic powers they need to navigate any difficulty successfully. Remember, the gift of the Magician is in channeling the energy sources available to him. He takes the same things everybody else may have it hand, but uses them intentionally. So throughout the week, as you’re allocating your energy, your thoughts, your actions, do so deliberately and intentionally. This will help you sail over any rough patches and come out the other side feeling accomplished.

Affirmation: I am beautiful and everybody loves me. This affirmation always cracks me up. On a surface level, it’s so obviously untrue. I know there are people who do not love me! However, I also know people frequently underestimate how many people do love them. Here’s what I’m thinking, it terms of advice: see your own beauty. Assess yourself as kindly as you would a dear, beloved friend. Only allow people into your inner circle who DO actually love you. I am considering this affirmation not so much a reflection of some sort of objective reality as advice, for creating the reality you would like. Act in accordance with what you find beautiful in yourself. Only do those things in private that you would not be ashamed to have known publically. Only invite kind, loving and loyal people into your world. Don’t give the assholes a vote! You do this, and this affirmation can be true. You just have to decide to make it so.

How are you faring out there?

Climb Little Goat: Weekly Tarot Forecast, Jan 11 – 17 , 2016

We’ve got a New Moon in Capricorn (9th) and the Goat vibe is palpable right now.  And this sucker is setting off all kinds of cosmic triggers. There is a definite shifting of gears.

And I’d tell you what this experience is like for me, but don’t know that I can in a comprehensible way. Words seldom fail me, but lately, they’ve felt damned inadequate. And when I try to use my words anyway, well, they often haven’t hit their mark.

The general impression I have, though, is like the past and present and future are all sort of coalescing into a very trippy piece of performance art.

What the Hell, Universe?

tarot forecast 2016

We’ve got a few repeats from last week. My overall impression of the coming week is climb, climb, climb. Keep doing your thing! The appearance of two Knights and two Pages is notable, though. Be on the lookout for both messages, and quick turnarounds of situations (and probably, moods) in the coming week. Keep on task, keep making plans, and take your time executing. One foot in front of the other, little mountain goat.

Monday, Page of Cups reversed: Monday blues? Don’t get hung up on it. If you stay busy, and keep bringing your attention back to task, you be able to get through just fine. Maybe watch a nice movie when you can swing it. Or a bath. Prescription: Bath!

Tuesday, Knight of Pentacles: Keep double checking your facts! Mercury is still retrograde. Detail work pays off. So keep doing it.

Wednesday, Judgment reversed: Not a good day to declare war, or bang down the gavel. Not all  relevant information has come to light. So withhold judgment. Just do your thing. Not all the facts are in, so no jumping to conclusions.

Thursday, Knight of Wands: This would be a great day to go for a run. Be active, make something, cook. It’s a physical day. So it drives any physical tasks that you have. Stay focused, creative. And try to engage your passion somehow during the day. Your fire burns bright, so make use of it.

Friday, Three of Pentacles: You can pull everything together today. Like a master project planner. All the little bits and pieces are a lot more clear today. Yes obviously, Mercury is still retrograde, so not all is fine and dandy in terms of executing new plans. But you sure can work on them and review them. And Friday would be a very productive day to do that.

Saturday, Six of Wands reversed: Yes, you can get some stuff done today. But it’s not gonna be as much as you planned or wanted to. If you can accept that going in, you’re gonna be much happier with the results.

Sunday, Page of Swords: Words have power today. Even messages that you didn’t necessarily think somebody was gonna get, will probably come through clearly. Potential for bluntness, so be aware of the emotional impact. But strong communications happening today.

Overview/advice, the Fool reversed: Take your time! There is no great rush to hop right in. It’s like the  an artificial sense of urgency is coming and going throughout the course of the week. You don’t need to jump on anything before you feel competent to do so. If you jump the gun, you have the potential for regrets and some type of loss. To take your time making your determinations. Yes, you will get started. Eventually. But don’t rush it.

Affirmation: We are all co-creators within a diverse universe. Everything that happens in your life becomes a part of you: you have a piece of the experience, and the experience has a piece of you entwined. So often, we tend to think that everything is all about us, or not at all about us. And it’s neither, really.  We don’t have full creative license to decide what sort of obstacles we face, but we do have the ability to write our own parts to a large extent.

Write a part you can be proud of, the way you handled yourself and your challenges.

It’s What You Make of It – Weekly Tarot Forecast, Nov. 9 -15, 2015

When I first started dating my husband, we had some near fights over things I said.

Or to be more accurate, we had some near fights over what he HEARD.

There were patterns in communication with his ex-wife that impacted his paradigm. There were times he heard attacks that I never launched–they were echoes of old fights with a very, very different person.

Now because he’s a very rational Virgo moon, clarifying my thoughts by providing a few supporting details completely eliminated the conflict. But had he not been able to adjust his hearing, we might not have made it so far, you know?

The energy this week is kind of like that.

IMG_4632

The first thing that speaks to me about this spread in the number of reversed cards. The slow, trudging feel of reversed cards does not for a smooth week make. The other thing that bothered me more is the overview card in the position of “Future,” the Ten of Swords. Not exactly my favorite card to see, no doubt.

But with only one Major in the bunch, I’m thinking at least frustrations and skinned egos should be of the everyday variety and relatively short lived. So I’ll take my comfort where I can find it!

Monday, What to Avoid – King of Pentacles: Don’t be sugar daddy (or sugar momma) and don’t try to feed everybody else if your cupboards are almost bare, for yourself. Your first job is to take care of YOU and yours. I love me some generosity, but it comes after taking care of personal responsibilities, not before. You know how they say on airplanes, in the event of an emergency, you are supposed to put on your own oxygen mask, before attempting to help anybody else? That.

Tuesday, Cons – High Priestess reversed: Mixed signals and incorrect assumptions could be a “thing” today. Don’t assume you know where other people are coming from if it’s not been made explicit. Potential for inopportunity blurting, 70%. Best if it’s not you as blurter, huh? I’d rather be the blurtee any day!

Wednesday, Outcome – Page of Swords reversed: Sharp, critical words lead to hurt feelings. Overly edited, unclear communication can lead to misunderstandings, though. It’s a fine line to walk! Deliver messages straight up and neat–don’t dilute them, but don’t editorialize an extra punch with passive-aggressive chastising buried in the mix, either. Say what’s true and necessary, but with as much kindness as you can. Or at least without a smack, okay?

Thursday, Conscious Desires – Ace of Pentacles: There is desire to get going in real-world, something-to-show for your efforts ways. Financial issues are one potential. Seeing actual, physical progress on your projects are another potential avenue. We want something to SHOW for our efforts and we’re quite aware of it today.

Friday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Hanged Man reversed: A little trouble letting things go today? A bit shaky on the faith? Look for something fun to do and aim for some out-and-out escapism to counter. Obsessiveness isn’t a fun hobby.

Saturday, Pros – Nine of Wands reversed: You don’t HAVE to dig your heels in to the bitter end unless you decide to do so. Why not reassess what’s really important here? Only dig in if it’s worth it. Knowing not everything is worth it is a true gift. Use it!

Sunday, Immediate Future, Six of Wands: Payoff! Thank goodness. Be generous, bold, brave and true to your ideals and others will follow. I like this one!

Overview/Advice, Future – Ten of Swords: Ouch, ouch, ouch! I’m not digging on the Ten of Swords as a weekly overview at all. But you get what you get. Don’t be surprised to run across some over-the-top crap during the course of the week, or people who manipulate situations for their own benefit. Yes, it can be hurtful but it’s always better to know. And if you find yourself getting ready to go nuclear, remember this forecast before you burn the lot of bridges. What’s your purpose? What do you hope to accomplish? Will an outburst serve that purpose or no? Act accordingly, because the implications seem…sticky here. They remain in the air a while.

Affirmation: My life is unlimited in every respect. This thought initially seems at odds with some of the forecast this week to me. I would editorialize here though (as if I do anything but), and say that your life is primarily limited by your perspective. Are there hard times and big challenges that cross our paths? OH YEAH! But it’s not your struggles or pain or even gifts that define you. YOU define you, by what you make of all those struggles and pains and gifts.

[bctt tweet=”It’s not what happens that defines you. It’s what you make of it.”]

Can you see ways you’ve limited yourself by what you’ve made of something?
