08/17/11: Heartbreak to Hope | 10 of Swords, 6 of Swords, Page of Cups

IMG_1528In the middle of crisis, every trial feels permanent. Every problem feels insurmountable. And every cloud in the sky looks like a killer storm brewing. It’s not really, but it sure looks that way.

Today’s Tarot forecast is a 3-card spread from the Transparent Tarot that seems to capture that feeling in the air while still suggesting a bright spot to sail toward. I like that!

  • Ten of Swords or Lord of Ruin, associated with Gemini Sun (Sorry, Gemini—it’s not personal!)
  • Six of Swords or Lord of Earned Success, associated with Mercury in Aquarius
  • Page of Cups or Princess of the Waters, associated with Earth of Water

The upshot—yeah, there have been betrayals, overreactions, possibly double-dealing and in general, folks in the vicinity have not always acted in good faith or with your best interests at heart. Whether it was conscious or not is a lot less relevant than we may care to admit.

The worst is definitely over—time to start pulling the swords out and let the healing commence. You are moving toward new shores here, but those wounds are still healing and sometimes, they still hurt.

Know the pain is both temporary and indication of a deeper understanding. Facing up  doesn’t permanently scar emotionally—it allows you to detach so you can sail away.

The best news, though—the Page of Cups promises heartbreak heals. The sense of newness, passion and emotional openness that may seem inaccessible in this moment is coming—that’s the point of all this letting go and moving on stuff, man. That’s how you get there.

Are you feeling this? How’s your trip?

Everyday Tarot, 06/18/11: Making Your Own Dinner

tarot-3-card-forecastWhen you’re working with the cards, there will be times you get something that you don’t want. In client readings, I’ll often ask for clarification, advice or more info to deal with troublesome energy. That’s just what I did with today’s Tarot forecast.

First, I pulled the Five of Wands. Oh great—conflict! I really appreciate all Tarot has to tell me, but c’mon! The Five of Wands is a tiresome vibe. Who wants to fight?

“Okay, what do we do with this conflict, then?” I asked. The inverted Ten of Swords appeared in response. “And what kind of outcome can we expect with that approach?” yielded the King of Swords.

IMG_1372So let’s get to the chase.  Whatever conflict has you feeling overwhelmed? Stop taking it personally! Back off from problematic situations and detach. You’ll feel like a pincushion only as long as you allow those little attacks to remain intact in your psyche.

Other people’s issues impact you, sure, but are SO not about you. Without internalizing those little pricks of betrayal, you can make rational, considered decisions about what to accept as your reality. You get to pick what you eat.

It’s remaining attached to behavior you have no control over that messes us up. Getting a little more Zen, forgiving and releasing, gives a clarity we’d never be able to find remaining wounded. In the release is freedom.

You don’t have to manage anyone else’s conflicts. You only have to manage yourself, and keep trusting that is enough. It is, you know. That’s exactly your job here—living the best life YOU can.

How’s your dinner?
