Bucking the System? Tarot Forecast, 3/27 – 4/2/17

I was getting a quick, fun reading at a fair one day–some sort of oracle stones. The reader asked me if I was a risk taker. I’m hesitating, thinking very earnestly on the question.

“I don’t know. I don’t feel like I’m that much of risk-taker.”

“How many different colors do you have in your hair?” she asked.

We laughed, and I got her point. What is no big deal to me–hair grows out, yo–may FEEL risky to others. In this case, the “risk” was mostly disapproval from people who don’t like grown women dying their hair weird colors. But it’s a legitimate “thing.” And I know it’s perceived as risky because I cannot count the number of people who have told me they’d love to do the same if they could find the courage.

Weird hair color and blue, glittery nails on someone much too old for such silliness by conventional standards is a tiny, even trivial example “bucking the system.” But it IS bucking the system. It’s about what I value on a personal level–color and glitz that makes me happy–versus what is considered conventional or socially acceptable.

This coming week is kind of like that.

Welcome to my Tarot forecast where I do things differently every week. Ha!

The Week Ahead

The Ten of Cups and Lovers combined speak to surrounding yourself with people that harmonize with you. Not yes-men and yes-woman. Yawn! But people whom you respect and respect you. There is space for synergy by teaming up with those you feel comfortable with emotionally. Harmony will be amplified, especially early on this week. It’s a way to ground yourself in stability before dealing with anything else.

Matter of fact, being grounded may come in handy mid to late week. The Seven of Wands teamed with the Tower and suggests calling out a naked emperor! Individuals may speak up to power or established systems. There is a feeling of fighting City Hall here, where the little guy stands up to the powers that be. This seems more personal to me, not necessarily a mass protest, but individuals speaking up in smaller ways.

In other words, don’t buck the system for the sake of bucking the system. Stay firmly grounded in what’s important to YOU in your own life. This is not worrying about others nearly so much as it feels like taking care of your own business.

But the other side of this process? Justice shows up to promise fairness–not to be confused with equality. In other words, the outcomes won’t be the same for everyone, but they will be applied equally and that’s motion forward.

Obviously, this is a forecast for the collective so that energy will play out differently for different people and for some, it will be less personal than for others. But don’t be surprised to see examples of it around you as you make your way through the week.

Tarot Advice

For advice, the Four of Cups teamed with the Seven of Cups suggests daydreaming about outcomes, playing what-if. There’s nothing wrong with that game. It can be incredibly beneficial, a lot of the time, if it’s used to understand and mold your ideas and help you remain optimistic. But understand the what-if’s you’re coming up with is incomplete, as they represent a transitory phase of the situation. Outcomes will have elements of your what-if’s but it won’t be a perfect match because the information is not yet fleshed out. Your dreams are baking this week, so it’s all still in the oven. Let it bake, you know? Let it bake.

We wind up with Death–there has to be a dying off and cleansing before your dreams can move forward. There is a energetic cleaning (which can include physical cleaning, especially symbolic physical cleaning). The new we’re moving towards, of course, is the final card here, the Six of Wands. Wow, that is a resurrection, huh?

My sense overall is that this is a good thing, a helpful breakthrough of sorts. So treat it as such. If you get yourself firmly grounded and feel the support and love of likeminded individuals, clearing out what is just not right isn’t so hard and in the end, it helps you keep moving.

Hope that’s helpful to you  and that you have a great week! Take care of yourselves and be well.

You ever find yourself fighting the big guys?

Icing on the Cake: Tarot Forecast, Jan 30 – Feb 4, 2017

I blame astrology–but one recurring theme of my life has been people that I care about exiting–sometimes quite dramatically.

I know, I know, we all deal with this to one degree or another. But it’s been notable for me, at least to me. It’s been a function of my life for many, many years. Important relationships, poof! Friends, sure, but also close family. I have not always taken this well mind you, but maturity has helped me make a lot of progress on that front.

This feature of being me has given the opportunity to find lots and lots of different perspectives on the phenomena. And being who I am, I always look for the perspective that feels best to me.

Our connections, meaningful as they are to us, giving so much fun and love and healing and growth, are all interludes in our lives. We each live inside our own hearts and heads with our own, unique perspectives and no amount of explanation or persuasion can fully admit another. And that’s beyond okay; it’s how this works. That’s how we’re built. It’s a gift, really, when we can share bits and pieces of it with another, but wholly unnecessary for a happy life.

Think of it like icing on the cake. It’s great to have icing but with or without, the cake still tastes good.

This week coming up? It’s a lot like that. The only thing that really matters is sticking true to who you are. This is your cake. Let the universe ice it.

Icing on the Cake: Tarot Forecast, Jan 30 - Feb 4, 2017 1

This week’s forecast audio…

The week as a whole may require you to step back a bit to get your orientation, so take your time and let the week’s events roll over you. There is a very clear flow to this forecast, gradual and progressive. I’m seeing/feeling plenty of hysteria out in the wild–so you’ll have to make the choice to opt out if you’d prefer not to ride on that train. Disciplined focus and a determination to feel good are your tickets to a better experience.

Especially notable in this week’s draw is the number of Sevens–the sixteen of the Tower reduces to seven, and we’ve got the Sevens of Wands, Pentacles, and Cups, along with the Chariot, Seven in the Major Arcana! Tarot Sevens offer a clarifying force: focus, drive, and turn points are often called into play. There’s also a sense in Tarot sevens of being separate, standing alone to make one’s decisions while the rest of the world does whatever it does. So if you keep that in mind, you’ll have more success.

Let’s hop on in to the day-by-day and see what we’ve got going.

Monday, Rebuild (Tower) – This angel has lots of heart energy going on…a very soft interpretation of the Tower. Take wherever you are, make peace and start focusing on what you want. Read: focusing NOT on what’s wrong, what might be wrong, how long it will be wrong, how to force the wrong out of your experience. Focus on what you want, and ways you can add that energy in your life. Focus is not the devastation, but the rebuilding. This works from applying it to yourself, all the way out: to your family, neighborhood, country, or world. I recommend focusing on what you want to build!

Tuesday, Strengthening Bonds (Ace of Pentacles) – Look for common ground. You disagree on 25 things with your neighbor but agree on two? Focus on and explore the two you agree upon! That’s the basis for moving forward. That is the only space in which progress is possible.

Wednesday, Base Chakra + Love (The Lovers) – Security and stability comes from the heart, not external circumstances. If you want to offer that to others, or find it for yourself, come at it form a heart space. Look for and express love and kindness. Focus on the energy of love and kindness to activate the vibration of love and kindness. If you are feeling a bit alone, to activate more love, focus your attention on things that help bring out that energy for you. A pet you love, food or a movie, whatever, doesn’t matter what it is. Just feel the appreciation, as appreciation is the same family of vibration as love, so it will activate love. Love is always good medicine.

Thursday, Choose your Battles (Seven of Wands) – Self-explanatory, don’t you think? Trying to get others to be you is always a losing proposition, so I never recommend it. ‘Nuff said.

Friday, Awaiting Results (Seven of Pentacles) – Don’t push to know all the details, how it’s all going to be, now, now, now, now, now. Set out your intentions and be clear, and let the world morph around your clarity and focus of feelings. The results of the vibration you’re offering will settle themselves.

Saturday, Daydreams and Decisions (Seven of Cups) – Lots of visions dancing in your head. Mentally a very active time. You get to decide what you focus on. Let your mind wander, sure, but steer it towards the “wouldn’t it be great if…” end of the scale. Make any necessary decisions, WHILE you’re in a good feeling place.

Make decisions steeped in the feeling you want for the outcome. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Sunday, Move (Chariot) – We’ve had some clarification this week. Monday, we decided what we want. Tuesday, we searched for common ground. Wednesday, we helped ourselves and others feel a bit more secure, coming from a heart-centered place. Thursday, we acknowledged not everything is worth fighting about, Friday, we sat back to let the flow come. Saturday, we get into a good-feeling place with our imagination and make decision from that good-feeling place. Sunday, you may have the option to take some action on it–inspired action, that comes from being connected, plugged in and being in a good place.

Icing on the Cake: Tarot Forecast, Jan 30 - Feb 4, 2017 2Overview/Advice, Darkest Fears (Nine of Swords) – Some of what you feel is “wrong” is worry, imagination used against yourself. Understand the yucky feelings you may have may not be premonition signaling an eventuality, but more born of personal fears. Look for where you can come together with the portion of your experience, however humble it may be, that you find is representative of what you want to see. I don’t mean come together to complain! Look for areas of commonality, harmony and agreement. This will help soothe and even out your energy, giving you more clarity. It’s a step towards living a happy life, which is kind of why we’re here.

Hope that’s helpful and hope you have an awesome week.

How’s your cake coming?

Be A Zen Cat: Tarot Forecast, Dec 26 – Jan 1

I nickname my neighbors. The ones I don’t know by name, I make up functional names for them. We’ve had Donut Girl and Mr. Weirdo and Captain Redneck.

Zen Boy is one of my favorites among the crop of current neighborhood kids. I’ve probably told you about him before.

He’s the one who was gathering acorns one day–singing odes of appreciation to the acorns as he dropped them in his bucket. He’d admire each as he was picking it up, singing a stream-of-consciousness serenade about how the acorn was, “so nice and round and broooooowwwwwn.” He wasn’t worrying about the other two kids picking up acorns, who was getting the most or the best or whether or not they approved of his singing. He wasn’t even noting the lady drinking coffee on her porch nearby, grinning all over to herself over the acorn serenade.

How freakin’ in-the-moment is that?

I’ve seen him again and again, and his countenance and energy tone is always the same. He’s right there, in the moment and not bothered by what other people are acting out.

Angry Man is another neighbor–one I haven’t enjoyed as much as Zen boy. His energy is always stormy, and he’s usually visibly (or audibly) displeased with whatever is before him at the moment. Also? He NEVER gets to leave anywhere on time and is sick and tired of all the Goddamn fighting in that house!

I was more than a little taken aback one day when I heard him fussing at Zen Boy…Angry Man must be his dad!

Whaaaaa?!? I would not have seen that coming.

And throughout the whole exchange, this kid did not waver an iota from his Zen. His energy was clear as a bell. There wasn’t even a blip of waver. He was listening to his Dad’s rant, yes, and responding to the conversation, absolutely. And  I could feel him the whole time, just KNOWING the drama was unnecessary, knowing it wasn’t about him. Not judging or bothering about the fact there was drama. Just not getting it on him. He stayed right smack on his center the whole time.

And suddenly, I had a whole new appreciation for Angry Man.

Because maybe it takes an Angry Man to help call forth a Zen Boy. You know? I’ve always said,  people get exactly the right parents, and here it was, in living color before me.

Maybe there is a place for allowing and appreciating in every bit of humanity.

And this week? Your ride is all about what you CHOOSE to appreciate.

What you appreciate IS a choice. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

With a rainstorm, some people seem flowers on the way and others see mud. I’m choosing the flowers, thank you very much. And this coming week is a lot like that. You can holler about the rain, or you can get excited about the flowers. You can get mad at the people who are dripping drama to and fro (and join them), or you can wish them well while you go about staying true to your own center.

I think we all know where this is going. Har! So let’s get to the forecast bit.

Be A Zen Cat: Tarot Forecast, Dec 26 - Jan 1 3

Monday, The Lovers: Cue harps and angels and all that jazz. Expect a harmonious day, so enjoy it! Do understand, though,  it’s harmonious with what YOU are putting out. that if you get out of bed cranky and walk around cranky, you’ll meet a lot of cranky. If you don’t like what you’re getting, take a look in the mirror!

Tuesday, Hermit rx: Connect with others, don’t isolate. Don’t let anxiety get the better of you. Speak out if something is on your mind, don’t wall up emotionally. Won’t help. Talking to others can help dissipate misunderstandings or confusion. A lot may need that sort of assistance today.

Wednesday, Judgement: Take a step back and assess, assess, assess. Without laying blame, by the way. Assess projects, creative work, whatever is on your mind, just assess. It will be easy to tease out what comes from where, what adjustments to make so long as the process is about finding info, not laying blame. So whatever you’re not happy with becomes a fact-finding mission and with this approach, you’ll feel movement.

Thursday, Page of Pentacles: Day for detail work. Seeing stacks and stacks of papers, checklists, bookmarks, etc. Methodical, by-the-numbers work goes well. Doublecheck plans, and plow through the little things and it will add up quickly. News may arrive, as Pages often announce the news. Nothing to do about it, just be aware messages may come.

Friday, Five of Pentacles rx: A possibility of some pity parties going down. Not so hard to counteract. The pity parties are not about circumstances, they are about how you feel about those circumstances. What touches your heart may bother you more than it bothers the individuals in the middle of it, as our expectations are different. This is all subjective. What you feel is your own, but remember, perspective is everything! If you catch yourself feeling a little sorry for yourself, try to catch it before it gains a lot of steam, and counterbalance it with something you appreciate to change it up quick!

Saturday, The Fool Rx: The phrase comes to mind, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” This day has the potential for blurting and impulsive behavior. You can wait until the end of a conversation or when you feel you are in control before speaking. Never act from a place where you feel anxious or upset. Whatever behavior undertaken from that vibration is not going to turn out the way you want. So get stable and grounded, plug in, and wait until it doesn’t feel like such an emotional emergency before moving.

Sunday, Temperance rx: In keeping with the general vibe for the whole week, there is info to be integrated and stuff to figure out. But it’s not something to work on consciously. You just have to NOT be Chicken Little to settle your life down. Be calm and chill. Give yourself the empty space, the non-effort (which takes effort for some, but it’s practice). That will make the difference.

Overview/Advice, Knight of Pentacles: Map it out and take your time. One step, one step, one step at a time.

Affirmation: Romance. In the context of the coming week, understand the harmony of what you put out is what you get back. Very highlighted throughout the week. You will get what resonates with the energy you vibrate. Doesn’t mean what you like, while it might be. But you cannot get much outside your belief system. You have to believe it before you can get it, you know? The Romance here is a reminder that you get what you put out. Not to be guilt trippy. Just look to shift the energy around anything that doesn’t feel good. It doesn’t matter where frustrations come from. Just look to feel better, PERIOD. That’s it. This shifts your energy and what you’re feeling syncs with what you’ve been thinking. Just look to shift your feelings a little bit better, a little bit better. “Romance” what you like in your life and appreciate it. Just like a smitten, new couple, who intensely focus on each other, drinking everything in from the connection? They’re specifically looking for the good stuff, hopeful it will work out, wanting to see the best

Approach your life like that! Romance yourself. Romance your life. Look for good things everywhere you can and your life will improve.

Romance yourself. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Clearing Emotional Residue: Tarot Forecast, Dec 19 – 25

When I lost my butterfly bush, I thought I wouldn’t be able to attract birds anymore.

While someone may legitimately ask, “So the %&$# what?” it matters to me.

Birds are wonderful messengers. They are born to the work. Their traversing both earth and the heavens put them in a perfect position to bring us our bits and pieces of truth, and they’ve long been looked to as such, in many belief systems throughout history.

When I’ve been too emotionally wound up, Grackles have come to point it out. Robins show up to remind me, when I’m ready to focus on new growth. Cardinals and Woodpeckers and crows and hummingbirds, even a few owls have all come to visit me, each bearing their own insight and suggestions to offer.

After my former bird haven was no more, the husband suggested we attract some birds to the upstairs window, outside our office. I had never considered we’d be able to do that, But we decided we’d like that a lot, so we set about being open to inspiration about doing it.

And now? We’ve got a glorious parade of bird visitors all day, every day, just about 3 or 4 feet from where I sit and write these words. They eat and sing and look in the window and watch us, as we look out the window and watch them.

And I’m furiously happy about this.

I could have stayed mad, that my fabulous, bird-friendly bush was gone. But that felt awful. Instead, I found a lot more peace and comfort, focusing on what I did want. I wanted more birds. And that’s why I got more birds.

The difference here is exactly where you are choosing to spend your energy. A lot like the week we’ve got coming up.

Clearing Emotional Residue: Tarot Forecast, Dec 19 - 25 5

This week begins in a Mercury retrograde (and it was making itself felt early this go-’round),  so expect blasts from the past along with glitches and delays. Skills that increase your odds for having a good time include flexibility, padding your schedule to allow for hiccups, and soothing yourself emotionally to keep grounded and connected as much as possible. Keeping your emotional tone on track allows you to more easily sidestep aggravations and remain a naturally happy camper.

You clear emotional residue by staying future focused. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Monday, Queen of Pentacles: Welcome, Mercury Retrograde! Anything you can do to smooth the way, do. Add some “comfort room” wiggle into your schedule. During this retro–which I’m expecting to be widely felt as I felt it coming in stronger and earlier than normal–it’s best to give yourself extra breathing room and not so much a good idea to push the envelope or try to slide in at the last minute. Plan ahead, yo. Great day for a good dinner, for yourself and/or others. Take care of yourself, practical matters, finishing your list and getting geared up for the week ahead.

Tuesday, Four of Pentacles rx: Coming across to me as potential for nervousness or anxiety if you’re prone. In terms of the situations in your life, I would expect some snigs and snags but not major issues. A moderate or small amount of conflict. So don’t overreact. Delays, snags, whatever you would expect during Mercury rx. Understand there may be postponements. Keep the anxiety at bay by getting quiet and plugging in before taking action. It might FEEL like a big deal at the time, but I’m not seeing it will play out that way long term. It really IS okay.

Wednesday, Knight of Pentacles rx: Again, I want to say expect snags or hiccups. Being OCD about how things go this week will pretty much drive you insane. So if you tend to be especially fussy or particular, relax your standards here. The Knight of Pentacles reversed often shows a certain obsessiveness and over-attention to details, a rigidity. I see the potential for that and it’s not really where you want to go. So take it as it comes and stay flexible. Another thing that’s really helpful, is realizing, NOT EVERYBODY IS YOU. Just because you see something a certain way, a well-considered conclusion? This doesn’t equate to anyone disagreeing being confused, broken or a bad person. Be open to diversity of all kinds, including thoughts, feelings, priorities and values. Appreciate the beauty in all.

Thursday, Lovers rx: Not a bad card even inverted. In general, most are in a good space and wanting to be happy and get along. With the Mercury Rx irritations, there may be little hiccups in the day’s flow. So stay focused on the bigger picture. Many times you can shift from annoyed to at peace if you broaden perspective.

Choosing between right and happy, always vote HAPPY. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Friday, Five of Cups: Ugh! Not my favorite card. Day feels kind of heavy, morose, sad. Like sitting around thinking of what you’re missing–or who you’re missing–over the holiday. Not out-and-out intense pain, but a general sadness poking at people. To deal with it, make yourself a safe, supportive environment. I’m seeing someone snugging up on the couch with a big blanket and bowl of popcorn to watch a favorite movie. Whether you do something like that or not, ask yourself, “What do I enjoy? What makes me happy?” Do that. Find your happy space and go there!

Saturday, The Hanged Man: First, hold the faith, keep the faith, have the faith, be the faith. In terms of activity, the Hanged Man always tells us to sit, be still and quiet. Which is funny, because his energy is not actually inactive. But his action is internal, energetic. It’s connecting to source first, so whatever action follows later is inspired. Inspired action has real impact. Not busywork, do something to feel better, it’s plugged in, inspired activity. That’s where you get real leverage.

Sunday, Two of Swords Rx. Merry Christmas! In terms of the forecast, this card is saying to me, “Not your choice.” If the question is how someone else lives, what someone else things, who is unhappy, what life choices are being made, who is hopping on what drama train? NOT your choice. Not yours to figure out, untangle, untease, solve or otherwise remedy. Not your problem to solve. NOT your choice. This idea may bother you, but once you take this message to heart, it can be an incredible gift. If you can just love and wish well, without trying to fix, without tossing out your energy toward a whole lot of ends that will never give you joy, you’ll be much better off. Respond to what you want to respond to, and ignore the rest. Get on with your life! So all told, it’s a very empowering stance. Keep this in mind over family visits. Don’t worry about anything, just focus on your own choices and you’ll be much happier.

Overview/Advice, Eight of Cups Rx: Sometimes, the idea of saying “I don’t care about that anymorem” doesn’t automatically mean you’ve left it behind. During the course of the week, especially with Merc Rx, I’m expecting some emotional residue. Lots of reminders of the past, which we also see around the holidays. Think emotional echos. There’s not a lot to specifically do. Understand, it’s there. If you don’t want something to be a big part of your experience, you must focus your attention elsewhere. Mentally rewrite stories. We get so interested in being objective and factual and real, we end up rehashing the same vibration over and over and it turns it up. Change the context, details or perspective to better support you. As you change your story, how you feel changes and as how you feel changes, what you live changes.

Affirmation: Trust. Isn’t that a beautiful message? Trust that you’re okay. Trust that you’re where you need to be and everything is working out for you. Trust that it’s all okay in the bigger picture. People get bothered so much, and so much of the time the issues really aren’t that big of a deal. Life itself is a transitory experience. We’re here for a short time before going back to nonphysical reality. So there is really no way to “get this wrong” since we’re here to create our now and participate in the grand dance of consciousness. That’s worth so much more than who voted for the one you didn’t like or whatever. Plug in to what matters! Being kind, loving, happy? That’s what matters. Most everything else is optional.

Are you keeping that emotional residue to a minimum?

Hope you have a lovely, awesome holiday. Be well!

Who Cares about the Brussel sprouts? Tarot Forecast, Dec. 5 – 11

When my kids were little, they did the same thing all kids do: they looked at ugly veggies like brussel sprouts and declared them disgusting.

I had already firmly established I wasn’t going to make multiple, separate meals for dinner. Frankly, they were lucky I came up with one! But it still was an issue for me getting some veggies down their little gullets, taking my parental responsibilities for their well-being quite seriously as young mothers often do.

“Okay, that’s fine if you don’t like something. As an adult, I don’t force myself to eat things I don’t like. But I expect you to try it before declaring it disgusting.”

See, the “I fixed it just how you like it, with salt and pepper and butter!” had stopped working. So I made a rule, there must be a full bite taken, chewed and swallowed before determining whether or not something was “disgusting” and before being excused from the table

You see where this is going?

Worst rule I ever conjured. It gave me a lot more grief with the boy child than just letting him turn his nose up the the green spheres and be done with it.

Instead, we had a battle of wills. Over brussel sprouts. Who would give in first?

Honestly, I don’t remember who is was that folded. I just remember an extracted battle that felt lousy and completely missed the point of encouraging him to try something new in an open, accepting atmosphere.

This week? It’s kind of like that. You can insist on things that are not really that important (as both of us were doggedly doing in my story). Or you can look at the bigger picture and only insist on what matters. Because most of it doesn’t.

20161203_213207_hdr

Overall, the week is not looking too bad! Basically any setbacks this week look minor and as long as you keep in mind what matters most and dismiss the rest, they are not gonna throw you. Lots of opportunities for replenishing and if you take them, it’s smooth sailing. So go forth and have an awesome week.

Monday, Nine of Cups rx: Generally, I read this card as “almost perfect.” You can find complaints if you look, but why look? There is a lot to enjoy if you’re not a whiner. So don’t be a whiner!

Tuesday, Empress: Awesome day! Creative day, as this is the Tarot Mama. Good day to give birth to something new, or self care is good. Anything you do under the Empresses influence to heal or build yourself up, it tends to be especially effective. Good day.

Wednesday, The Lovers: Expect harmony. Usually with the Lovers, there is choice involved as when the man chooses to be with the wife and leave home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html, for example. We’re generally looking at fortuitous, comfortable. Will have the option to get your vibe on with people of like mind, so enjoy!

Thursday, Nine of Wands rx: A little different than what we’ve had up to this point. Usually, I’ll see this when someone is tired of holding out. Would not focus a whole bunch on getting your individual way. Shift focus to the bigger picture, what is really important. Forget specifics, but look to principles to get the most here.

Friday, Seven of Wands: Echoing same theme as yesterday. Look at core values, not little details. If it’s not important, let it the heck go!

Saturday, High Priestess: Great time to make time for quiet, contemplative events. Time outside if it’s not too cold, meditation, music, etc. Intuition is in high gear. It’s access through quiet activity, creative stuff, exercising your imagination, dreamwork, etc. Know your radar is in high gear, even if you’re not overly energetic. Not a super active vibe, but very receptive.

Sunday, Queen of Pents rx: Take care of yourself FIRST, before extending hospitality to others. If you don’t, you’ll run out of gas before it’s done.

Overview/Advice: Ten of Pentacles rx. Still a nice vibe even reversed. Stronger upright but still a good vibe. Know this week’s setbacks are minor and you can easily work your way around it if you choose. Keep the good attitude and it will go well. In fact, issues that come up can be helpful in terms of providing useful info anywho. Freaking out, it goes downhill, so keep the good attitude. Do what you can to roll with the flow and don’t get worked up.

Affirmation: As I say yes to life, life says yes to me. Take a chance! Do what you really want to do. For me this conjures up the idea, so many times when we’re looking at why we want something, we actually think in terms of what they don’t want, not what they do. It may seem like the same thing saying you don’t want to be sick vs. you want to be healthy, but it’s a lot different vibration. It’s not as subtle difference as you’d think. There is a big difference between pushing against vs. pulling for, although both bring more into your life.

 

Do you pick your battles? Or does it depend on your mood?

Timely Unfolding Tarot, Aug 7 – 13

Quantum leaps always sound so great, don’t they?

I want to get from where I am, to ========> over here, NOW.

Now, now, now.

Cue Veruca Salt.

I get it. I do.

But quantum leaps often don’t feel better than gradual, steady progress forward in the real-world living.

Quantum leaps usually come from Tower moments–significant disruption. They are disorienting and often born out of crisis or boiling point. They are intense. They can be challenging.

Whereas steady step, step, step in the direction you want to go? Much easier.

Trying to force or push a big jump forward is usually fruitless anyway. Instead, settle for an ongoing reorientation towards how you want to feel, over and over and over. Reorient towards the feeling place you want to be the same way you’d check your travel route against a map. That will carry you through and it’s a whole lot easier than trying to will yourself to teleport.

The flow of next week pretty much jumps out here: slight sludge through the start, swinging into brighter weather midweek and ending on a high note. The beginning isn’t awful, it’s just got the potential to be twitchy here and there. So take it slow and steady and be kind to yourself through the process. Making peace with wherever you are will allow the smoothest flow.

Monday, Queen of Wands rx – Keep your temper monitored to keep from turning into a McCrankyPants. Because that’s no fun for anybody. Just take your time through the day and any time anything isn’t where you want it to be? Take a step back. Breathe deeply, in and out. It’s not hard to stay on solid ground here as long as you remain aware of your emotional state and make any adjustments before it gets ramped up. I don’t see this as an overwhelmingly intense day. Just little pokes here and there, which are easy enough to sidestep if you’ve decided beforehand, you will sidestep.

Tuesday, Moon rx – Scorpio moon day. There’s a sort of wariness, like the theme is “undercurrent.” I would almost say, it’s something like air has some thickness with what’s not being said. Nothing to do with it. Just don’t go full-on paranoid if you are feeling this, because the week sorts itself out within a day or so.  I’d suggest invoking your Scorpio power and observe the Hell out of it all. And happy birthday to my Kidlet!

Wednesday, Six of Cups rx – A relaxing of scrutiny. Overall the tone is lightening up here and the sense of sloughing through is largely lifted by this evening. Have a relaxing evening.

Thursday, Knight of Cups – Appreciation flows freely today, back and forth. Focus on what you love and share the wealth by letting people know you appreciate them. It can be little or big, those close to you or at random strangers. But if you make the choice to focus on appreciation, it returns exponentially.

Friday, The Lovers – A harmonious day! This feels easy and fun to me. Clicking into place. Enjoy your day!

Overview/Advice, Judgement – Do the best you can individually and don’t concern yourself with what others say of you or what they do themselves. All things will sort themselves out in the end. This is a “keep your eyes on your own paper and let God sort it out” kind of week. If you do that, though, you’ll be able to glide through and feel pretty good. So do it!

Affirmation – You know what to do. You get quiet and peaceful and as calm as you can. You allow yourself to plug in. And then? You act when you feel the inspiration, doing what feels the best.

Your connection never goes away. You just have to shut the brain up long enough to hear it. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Everything happens in the time and place that can allow for it, and not before (or after). If you approach the week ahead with patience, and a slow, steady determination to make the best of wherever you find yourself, you can have a pleasant week overall and make some progress toward what you want. Doesn’t that sound like a plan?

It’s my plan!

In short: don’t bitch at yourself if your life hasn’t unfolded just so. You’re not done! The flower blooms at just the right time and so do you. Patience isn’t so much a virtue here as a provider of some ease. I’m all about taking the ease whenever possible.

Priority is your peace of mind and connection. If you keep coming back to that, maintain your center, then everything else smooths for your path. I’ll take it!

How you doing?
