Something Old, Something New: Weekly Tarot Flow, Nov. 17 -23

Tarot Flow Nov 17 -23

Somebody, somewhere said, “In every ending, there is a beginning.” That’s this week in a nutshell. A mash-up of endings leading to beginnings.

We’ve got a couple of Tarot Tens, which speak to wrapping things up, and a couple of Aces, which speak to starting something new. In between, there are choices, details, and a little shot of optimism. This could work! But it’s not all sunshine and roses, every minute. The bumps in the road look to be specifically related to integrating what you’ve learned so far into your now, your partnerships, and coming out the other end with a more solid, long-term vision for the future. You can do this!

Monday, Co-workers – Seven of Pentacles Reversed: Those damn people you work with just don’t always take the long term view Agh! Somebody needs to. Could it be you?

Tuesday, Past – Nine of Wands Reversed: What did you bail on before it was quite done? That’s the clean up left. Not a lot, but a little, and that little bit remaining is important.

Wednesday, Partner – Two of Swords: A choice to be made between you and your partner. Weight it out, and consider the facts. Take into account everyone’s needs, not just those of either self or other. Rational is the way to go here. Careful balancing will give you the best result. Be fair.

Thursday, Finances – Ace of Cups: A new financial opportunity…or even just a bit of optimism. A currently small but encouraging bright spot related to money.

Friday, Past Life – Wheel of Fortune Reversed: Something that seemed like bad luck at the time maybe was not. Why? It gave you something you needed, even if you didn’t know.

Saturday, You – Five of Swords: You can wipe up the floor with any opponents today. Don’t be a poor sport if you do, though.

Sunday, Pros – Ace of Pentacles: Efforts are especially productive today, even if it seems like just a “little bit.”

Advice/Overview – Ten of Cups: You can get your guidance this week form looking to your emotional states, and in particular which options you feel “at home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html” with. The best choices this week ring true to your heart, and feel consistent with your family heritage. In other words, those values you carry with you, possibly some so deep they seem to run in your blood? Honor them. Honor yourself. This will guide you.

Affirmation, Leadership – Archangel Gabriel: “It is time for you to assume your leadership power and position, and lovingly guide others.” In the context of this week’s reading, I’m seeing the need to be very clear about what works for you and take the lead on moving in that direction. The people that should be walking next to you down that path, will follow. Release attachment to who comes along. Release attachment to anyone else’s choices. Just make your own, and focus on maintaining a generous, loving attitude. Lead by example, and by conviction. A heart full of joy and love makes a very compelling example.

How’s your week looking?

Review and Rewind: Weekly Flow Tarot, Nov. 10-16

Weekly Flow Tarot Nov 10-16

Literal Tarot was literal yesterday when I cut my finger on a Page of Swords day. I did notice echos throughout the week of my perceptions of who I am versus the reality. This coming week, it appears we’ll have opportunity to act on what we noted last week. The good news is, if we’re not satisfied with how things are coming out, we can write some new endings!

Monday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Queen of Swords reversed: There could be tendency to be especially harsh or critical, judgmental. It may not come out of the mouth so much as show up in behavior, in facial expressions, or even in choices. Do put a little extra effort into thinking logically and keeping the facts straight. Don’t make assumptions. Double check. Review.

Tuesday, Spirit – Four of Pentacles Reversed: This is a pulling in, an over-conservative approach to life. In the position of Spirit, I would tell you to take a few risks, and trust your team of invisible friends to have your back. You know what I mean? Why are you worried? Rewind and make adjustments.

Wednesday, Resolution – Six of Wands Reversed: You win some, and you lose some. The resolution today is not to expect everybody to follow your lead, not to insist on winning them all over, or winning every battle. Look at the war, not the individual skirmishes. You decide what really matters to you, for you, and release the rest. Always truly release the rest. Rewind,

Thursday, Question – Nine of Pentacles: What have you really learned so far? Lessons have a sometimes rather dramatic tendency to repeat themselves until you’ve “gotten it.” Get it, and you’re good. So that’s what you want to ask yourself: what can I learn from this? The answer could surprise you. It could also help you leap ahead. Review-note what you’ve learned-and rewind-and act on it.

Friday, What to Take from the Past – Page of Pentacles: How did you used to make things work, organize your day and get things done? Just because you’ve had changes in your life since doesn’t mean you didn’t have good ideas. Look to practical, detail-oriented strategies that you may have left behind. What served you well at the time that you don’t do anymore? Rewind.

Saturday, Immediate Future – Ten of Cups Reversed: Loved ones may not be 100% on board with all of your choices, but that doesn’t change the fact they love you. Allow family (biological or chosen) their space and the freedom to have whatever feelings they have. It’s not a reflection on you and love wins out over minor disruptions. Rewind and let others manage their own reactions..

Sunday, Heart of the Situation – Seven of Swords Reversed: This isn’t about intentional duplicity. But someone may be fooling themselves just a touch. Double check your assumptions to make sure it’s not you. Review (and rewind if  warranted).

Overview/AdviceKnight of Swords Reversed: This suggests to me a methodical approach to the week. The Knight of Swords is traditionally a pretty speedy fellow, quick to make decisions and quick to regret them! Reversed, he’d be well advised to back up, slow down and double check. We’re still reviewing and, if appropriate, rewinding for another go!

Affirmation: Blue – Activate Your Healing Power. Sometimes it feels discouraging to revisit old issues. Why haven’t I mastered this? Why am I not further along? We want old woes to be yesterday’s news. But these periods of review are more than “proof” we don’t make the grade. They are healing checkpoints, invitations to refine our processes and also appreciate how many strides we’ve truly made. Take that as the gift it is. Soothe the raw spots in your life with love. Love always helps.

Are you getting a bit of review déjà vu lately?

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?

Self Protection and Restraint – Weekly Flow Tarot, Sept 1- 7

Sept 1 - 7

Well, last week’s forecast pretty much fit my week, up to and including a 4-hour nap on Sunday! Didn’t know I was that tired. So let’s take a peek at the week ahead, shall we?

Overall, we’re a bit heavy on the Cups and Wands suits, with a few of the Major Arcana cards appearing, so we’re still talk an active (Wands), somewhat emotional (Cups)  week and what we figure out is likely to be a big deal (Majors). I am slightly concerned with the possibility of jumping to conclusions with these Knights, they tend to be kind of impulsive, along with the Moon (illusions) showing up in the lineup. It looks to me like the week ahead is going to demand a lot of flexibility and self-restraint to navigate well.

Overall, I’m seeing the need to self-protect as dominant. I don’t consider that a dire declaration. Honestly, we need to do this on a daily basis anyway. But I’m feeling drawn to remind you, and based on what I’m seeing that’s in order. So consider yourself reminded.

Monday, Conscious Desires- Ten of Cups Reversed: A drive for individuality, to be seen as your own person and not part of the group, or cut of another’s mold. Just make sure you’re not being contrary for the sake of being different. Being legitimately different? Awesome! Being contrary? Waste of energy.

Tuesday, Coworkers – Two of Wands: In all partnerships, work or group projects, stand up for what you believe and be clear in presenting your case. You can successfully hold your ground here and make the points that need to be made.

Wednesday, What you can Change – The Emperor Reversed: I’m seeing this two ways. One, you can break out of the traditional mold, try something unique or outside-not-just-the-box-but-the-whole-room! Stark creativity. The other thing you can change is exactly what you try to change, you know? Not everything needs to be controlled. Not everyone needs to live by your standards. Make sure whatever you’re trying to manage is both yours to manage and worth the effort of trying to control. Question being, how important is it, really? M’kay?

Thursday, Problem – The Moon: The problem today is based on illusion, misconception, lack of facts or deception—either self or other invoked. But you know what? You can dream something up just as quickly as you can dream it down. You can imagine GOOD stuff coming just as easily as bad. Why not? At the very least, try to use your imagination for creative and fun ends as much as possible today so it doesn’t run away with you wallowing stuff that isn’t nearly so healthy or helpful.

Friday, Partner – Knight of Wands: A partner or buddy is raring to go, in a hurry. Maybe it’s acting or great ideas or not, but expect cohorts to be hot to get “whatever” a-going. Whether this is good, bad or indifferent in the larger scheme, I don’t know. Impatience is likely if there is not plenty of activity, though. So how about plenty of activity as a plan?

Saturday, Action – King of Cups Reversed: Emotional dump. Call a friend, talk to your mate, journal it out or work on art. Whatever you do to release, it’s a good time for it! Also an auspicious time for any kind of household purge. If you have emotional energy you need to let go, today you can let it go! You’ll be lighter for it. (P.S. Happy Birthday, Captain Virgo!)

Sunday, Answer – Knight of Cups Reversed: The answer is based on looking beneath the feelings, holding back on impulsive and reactionary behavior until you have a clear picture of where the emotional drives are coming from. Avoid unconscious reaction by asking yourself, “Why do I feel more strongly about this than it would seem to warrant?” That’s a huge clue for you, any time your emotional reaction seems way out of proportion to the situation. Feelings are not good or bad, but they are very useful sources of information.

Overview/Advice – Wheel of Fortune: VERY much a time to roll with the punches! This is silly, but I’m thinking of that old song they used to sing on Hee Haw, my parents watched all the time. “Gloom, despair, and agony on me. Deep dark depression, excessive misery. If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. Gloom, despair, and agony on me.” Then they’d do some bit, a joke about somebody’s bad luck. Don’t be singing this song! More times than I can count in my life, what I thought was awful luck turned out to be exactly what needed to happen. We just don’t have the perspective to know it. I consider this week to be one of those times. I’m expecting ups and downs—duh, when it there not?—but in the grand scheme, you’ll be getting just what you need.

Affirmation: Cloak Yourself In light. This is from my “Trust Your Vibes” deck, which I really like for self-care advice. The point here is to protect yourself! Shield yourself from the stress, negativity, angst and general chaos of energy out there in the world. How? Well, you can go straight to the point and visualize yourself putting on a coat of light just like in the image, with the intention that you’ll be protected by this. If you’re not all “magical” and such, it might feel silly but done with intention and focus, it actually does work! You can also ask your spirits for help with this, use a sage stick to smudge yourself clean, have your showers “wash off” the negativity and stress of the day, bless and pray over your actual clothing to provide an energetic barrier for you, ask your angels to give you a light cloak, mix up some special lotion to serve as a “light barrier” to protect you, declare your care a safety zone, whatever helps you! I don’t care how you do it—use your imagination to find something that suits you, just do it. Okay?

How’s your week looking? Does this fit your plans?

Lion to Lamb – Weekly Flow Tarot Forecast, Aug 25 – 31

Tarot Forecast

Seeing the week start out with so many of the Wands, I am thinking we begin with some heat, some motion and a lot of activity. Expecting a busy week, with recuperation needs to catch up with us at the end of the week. The flow here reminds me of the old phrase about March, in like a Lion, out like a Lamb? That’s this week. Roaring on Monday all the way through napping on Sunday.  So plan your activities to tackle high energy demands early in the week and you’ll be more free to flow into the end of the week with less stress.

Monday, Lesson – Queen of Wands: Why me? Sometimes when faced with challenges, we ask ourselves, “why me?” This queen would tell you, it’s because you need to know you are strong, because your will is being clarified, because you need to prioritize and crystallize your intentions. She says that life is the sandpaper that smooths the wood. The Queen of Wands teaches the lessons of strength, perseverance and single-mindedness to complete a quest. Emulate her today and you’ll graduate this lesson with a passing grade at least.

Tuesday, Situation – Page of Wands: Think active, laying the groundwork for what is to come. Pages are young, so things are just getting started. There may be big plans, exciting plans, or a message with possibilities. This is a day for setting the stage. If you have to-do tasks for long term goals, employment related chores, or the inspiration to begin a creative project, it’s an excellent time for starting to get things in order. Just understand there may be changes and morphing along the way. But for now, getting started is what counts.

Wednesday, What you can Change –King of Wands: Quite literally, you can change what you DO. You cannot control what anybody else does, or thinks or believes. But you can change what you do. So if you want a change in what’s going on, make a change in what you do. Keep following through with what you started earlier in the week.

Thursday, Coworkers – Strength: Get some extra patience, help and support from those you are working with, or offer some up if you’ve got some to spare. Here, “coworkers” can be anyone with whom you share common objectives. The idea being that getting through life’s difficulties is a whole lot easier if done in a group, and that group support is on offer right now. Gentle, easy-going and patience, it doesn’t have to be dramatic. But the results of group endeavors might be. Just not the endeavor itself.

Friday, Conscious Desires – Hanged Man Inverted: Tap, tap, tap, foot tapping! This is impatience. This is an urge to “meddle” and mess and an undercurrent of anxiety. There’s an itch to just “do something.” I’d say most likely, you’ll have trouble completing something concrete, it’s sort of a hard-to-grasp energy here. But you can make lists, contingency plans, organize and classify. That counts as “something” that can be done. So do it, and then take yourself a walk to burn off nervous energy. Ground, okay? Ground.

Saturday, Blocking or Covering – Two of Wands reversed: Are you feeling kind of insecure, wall-flowerish? That timid response can be a liability if nobody understands what you’re trying to say. Be clear. Stand up for yourself as needed without being argumentative. Being clearly yourself and clear about yourself doesn’t start a standoff. It helps avoid misunderstandings.

Sunday, Body – Ace of Cups: An emotional day, or day to emotionally recover. Time outside, time around the water, meditation and overall quiet does an awful lot of good. I’m also getting the feeling we really just need a chance to process the rest of the week! Don’t overbook today. Allow spaces between the activities because the most important parts of this day happen in the spaces.

Overview/Advice – 10 of Cups Reversed: You may not see consensus among those you care about this week. Family and the family of friends you call your own might not see everything eye-to-eye with you. That’s okay. You don’t have to agree with someone to love them anyway! Otherwise, we’d only have to look in the mirror for companionship. I’d be very aware throughout the week of putting the love first, the opinions and differences clearly second. You know what I mean? Peace is worth cultivating. You have to make your own decisions, and should. Just don’t let differences in perspective drive a wedge between you and loved ones. Opinions change, but people that give a damn about you are VALUABLE. If feelings are getting a bit raw, seek space to allow a little cool down time. That helps. And look forward to some nap time on Sunday if you can!

Affirmation: “Woo-Woo” is wonderful. Love this one! Be you, free and true. One of the toughest things for people to get over when they are really kicking in with tuning in to their own intuition, more into the “woo” as we say, is NOT outside criticism although there is that aplenty. It’s the self-criticism that shuts them down! Without it, they can begin to hear the inner voice and getting that kick-ass guidance system fully operating. Stop worrying about how or why or God help us, what next, what next?!? Just DO. This is a great week—okay, I think every week is a great week for really turning the connection on high.

We’re starting out on fire, so make the early week active as Hell, knock out as much as you can, allow others to be there for you as they show up, and sink back into the comfy chair to figure out what happened next weekend. But through it all, be YOU, be honest with yourself and take deep breaths to listen, listen, listen to what your gut tells you. Don’t you know, it never steers you wrong?

Does this fit your week’s schedule?! Sounds busy, sometimes kind of challenging, but damn productive. Go get ‘em!

Hearing Exam: Weekly Flow Tarot, July 28–August 1

Weekly Flow Tarot Jul 28 - Aug 1

Anytime I see this many cards reversed, I know it’s not going to be an especially easy week. It helps some that they are generally friendly cards, but it still tells me progress will feel slow and probably frustrating at times, maybe with a 2-steps-forward, 1-step-back quality.

In fact, this spread unfolds like a story, a little version of the Hero’s Journey. You start with a choice that is best made according to your own heart, not to gain the approval of family or your circle of friends (Monday). It’s complicated by realizing in the past, your dreams did not materialize and that’s discouraging (Tuesday); it hurts how much you trust your own judgment. However, you’re determined to make it and deal with whatever comes your way (Wednesday). The storms have left you feeling a bit jaded, having trouble trusting (Thursday). Ultimately, you’re in the process of learning to become your own guru (Friday).

Monday, Advice – Ten of Cups Revered: Don’t go to others for advice today, however well they mean you. This one is yours.

Tuesday, Past – The Star Reversed: Instead of focusing on what has NOT worked out of what you wanted, what has? In what ways has it been better than you could have ever guessed?

Wednesday, Crowning Influences – Six of Swords: Determination, grit and perseverance pay off. Use the one-step-up approach. Wherever you are now, keep moving a little closer, a little closer to where you want to be. Every step along the journey counts.

Thursday, You – Six of Cups Reversed: Neither an overly trusting nor an overly cynical attitude serves very well. Today looks to be off-kilter in the trust department. Let actions speak louder than presuppositions, okay?

Friday, Underlying Influences – The Hermit Reversed: Are you hesitant to trust yourself? Are you very much influenced by others around you? You may not be taking enough quiet time to just allow yoruself to hear your inner thoughts and feelings.

Take-home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html – Queen of Swords, Reversed: An inverted queen to me is saying, “You’re not listening!” Especially with the other cards drawn, it’s really important this week to listen. Listen to yourself, listen to input, yes, but most of all, listen to your inner voice and give that voice the most weight. Weigh things out logically.

Angel Message, Clairaudience– Archangel Zadkiel: "Notice the loving guidance you hear in side your mind, or from other people."

Some words of wisdom may come from inside, and some from outside, but it’s a sure thing we have to shut up long enough to hear them! We have to quiet the anxiety, quiet our mind, breathe and allow the space for communication to happen. No matter where the words come from, look for those that resonate within you as true and right, those that carry extra weight. That’s your clue they matter to you. You hear what I’m saying?

How’s your week looking?
