Mess is Part of the Process: Tarot Forecast, Sept. 19 – 25, 2016

I’ve been taken lately with thoughts about transitional times–those periods in life that are just out-and-out emotionally messy, where your world feels like it’s coming apart at the seams. I’ve yet to see anyone who revels in those transitions, but really? They are SO often later described as “the best thing that could have ever happened.”

Before anybody reaches out to slap me, hear me out, man.

Like when you’re cleaning a big mess of a room. Stage one involves moving stuff around, picking up and sorting, right? And for a while, that room looks like a much bigger mess than it did before you started? That.

Post eclipse (and with the goings-on I’m seeing and sensing coming up), we are definitely in a sort of transition. It feels smoother to me here and now than the preceding days in many ways, but I’d be the first to admit there is still a big pile of mess remaining.

But I don’t care about the mess. I know it’s part of the process. I guess I’m just weird in that I have a ceaseless pool of optimism from which to draw. I see this big mess as good, helpful, clarifying in the bigger picture. And that bigger picture is what matters most.

I’m staying, long range view here, folks. Long range view.

Aside: I originally did this forecast as an audio file, so here’s that if you’d rather listen than read. It’s a little longer than the print version (and a good representation of how my readings flow in general).


This week, we’ve got a lot of reversals – Mercury is still retro. And it might take more than one try to get things done. Things are still happening but maybe not on your timetable. Chilling, suggested. One day, one step at a time.

Monday, Lovers: Smooth flowing day. Look for points of harmony, not points of dissention. Look for connections. Good day for a date night!

Tuesday, Death Rx: Not the end of the world, okay? There is disruption right now, but it’s not pointless disruption. It has a puprose. Things will continue to unfold. Don’t fight it, have faith. Go along with the ride and it can be fun.

Wednesday, King of Pentacles rx: Don’t be looking for a sugar daddy to fix everything. Nobody is going to untangle your knots. By the same token, don’t try to bail out anybody else. That merely sends the message you don’t trust their abilities to bail themselves out. Have a little faith. Be generous, but don’t give more than you can afford. Put your own needs first as you are your own first responsibility. Make the support you offer more emotional and energetic, as in seeing others in their strength and helping remind them of that strength. Big difference in perspective with that approach.

[bctt tweet=”The best way to help another is reminding them of their own power. #OnMyRadar” via=”no”]

Thursday, King of Wands: Good day to get stuff done. Always operate from your heart – never bad advice but extra releavant with Wands. You can expand the energy of a passion today, so aim your attention there today. And oh yeah, Mercury goes direct. Woot!

Friday, Chariot Rx: Don’t try to force it. Go with the flow, accept any pauses or slight shifts in direction as just part of the process, not indicative of failure. Okay? Detour or delays, as opposed to “no.”

Saturday, King of Cups rx: Emotions will be “a thing.” Stabilize your before you go slopping ’em around. Understand your reactions are more about how you are thinking and your emotional responses, not some picture of hard and fast reality. So if you feel like slapping somebody or guilt-tripping or whatever? Reign it in, man! Be true to yourself of course, but don’t assume how you’re feeling this second is how you will CONTINUE to feel.

Sunday, Four of Pentacles: Stabilizing energy. A good break. Don’t jump off into worry. Just enjoy the stability.

Overview/Advice: Star, Rx. Remain optimistic, but don’t tie that to a specific outcome or goal. Attach your optimism to the essence of what you want, not a specific outcome or goal. For example, if you want a job? Then focus optimism on the type of job or better, the sort of environment and work you want, not position X with employer Y by date Z. Give the Universe more to work with here in terms of opening a path for you. Look at how you want to feel, the point of where you want to go.

Affirmation – Angel Answers — YES! Yes, yes, yes. Stay positive, expect good, expect things to work out, expect success. That doesn’t mean there are never any blips, but ultimately…expect things to work out well. That helps them to work out well, but it’s also the kind of energy you want to keep with you. I’m in the right place at the right time, doing exactly what I need to be doing. All is well.

Keep shifting yourself to this orientation and practicing it. It will be become natural.

There is tendency to jump to conclusions this week that things are not going as they should. Take a step back from that. Take a chill pill. Take a nap. Distract yourself from what bothers you. Emotional? Be kind to yourself! Step back. Self-care is your friend and it’s a good week for it. Calm, centered self-care will get you through and help you retain your sense of well-being. Have some faith it IS working out because it is.

Are you keeping your faith during the transition(s)?

Now, Now, Now. Unconditionally. Tarot, Sept 12 – 18

Lately, I’ve been looking to be a lot less “conditional.”

We use the word “unconditional” often without really thinking about what it means. It’s because a little automatic–so I’ve been looking to reconnect with the concept.

“Unconditional: not subject to any conditions. Wholehearted, unqualified, unreserved, unlimited, unrestricted,unmitigated, unquestioning;
complete, total, entire, full,absolute, out-and-out, unequivocal.” – Google’s definition

Unconditional happiness. Unconditional love. Unconditional appreciation.

Do you see the freedom in that? Can you get a whiff of it?

I can love everything and everyone! Whether they are nice to me or others or not. I can appreciate the good without condemning what I see as flawed. I can find things to appreciate no matter what the circumstances of my life or anything else.

The bonus bit is that finding your way to an unconditional state of joy and anticipation and appreciation actually puts you into the “sweet spot” for manifesting more pleasing conditions. It moves your personal vibration to match the conditions you like. As long as you don’t stop to take score every two minutes (and match your vibration to “not there yet, not there yet, where is it, not there yet), just revel and roll in the unconditional feelings, you’re on your way!

With the forecast for the coming week, I’d say it’s a great time to practice being less conditional. The week will flow a whole lot smoother and you’re fare better than people who are looking out their windows before deciding how they feel about the energetic weather. Set the tone yourself deliberately, and let life follow your lead.

20160908_181320_hdr

This week has a slow motion feel to me, kind of like moving through a heavy mist. Emotions are prominent, so take care of yours by being kind to yourself. Much easier to sidestep outbursts that way–hopefully not your own! (Also? Big emotion doesn’t equal “bad week” to me. It does, however, point to a powerful week. Aim your emotions at what you want instead of what you don’t and let this give your desires a boost towards realization.)

I’d strongly advise you to stay in the present and look for what feels good right NOW. And now, and now and now. Not so much attention wandering off into the future or back into the past. I’m seeing someone hiking up a rocky path, looking down frequently to be sure of their footing. If they were trying to monitor other hikers, see how it wouldn’t be as helpful? Walk your own path. Don’t worry about anybody else’s path. Just yours.

Monday, Six of Swords Rx: You’re moving, even though it’s pretty slow and not completely the direction you’d prefer. Acknowledge the progress, will you? It helps. Even if the progress doesn’t feel directly forward, it is moving and that’s better than stagnation. Line up your energy with where you want to go.

Tuesday, Six of Pentacles Rx: Tendency to assume the worst, about the self or others. Don’t fall for it! It feels a whole lot better to assume the best and it helps you stay on track.

Wednesday, Death:  Not an easy day. Sorry! Death usually speaks to very deep change, where the rotted and broken get rooted out. But it’s often an uncomfortable process. There’s a lot of power in it and it has it’s place in the life cycle. However, may not be your favorite.

Thursday, Seven of Cups: Not all is necessarily how it appears on the surface. Time will flesh out the details (read: accurate details) so just take it slow and easy, slow and easy.

Friday, Ten of Cups Rx: You can see the same scene, looking at what bothers you or looking at what fills your heart. Totally different experiences, right there. You probably know where my vote is so just remember, today it’s your vote that counts. Happy eclipse (she says unironically)!

Saturday, Strength Rx: Give it a rest, whatever “it” is. Take the day off from fussing.

Sunday, Eight of Swords: All the limitations are self-imposed. Of course, they always are but they often don’t feel that way.

Overview/Advice: Chariot Rx: Continue to take a light touch and indirect route, of that’s the path of least resistance. Not a week to push, push, push. There’s enough of that going on already! Good time to stay in your own lane, too. Lots of backseat drivers on the road and that’s not helping. Stay aware of your goals, yes, but don’t try to force anything.

Affirmation: Words do not teach. Life experience teaches. Obviously, we cannot talk anyone else into doing what we find right. Hell, we don’t know that for anybody else, anyway. Each of us has one and only one path we have rights to navigate, thank you very much. Look at others in their strength, their connection, and see their ability. You can hold that vision in your heart, solid when the others are not feeling it as much. And you can live your own life, never beating up on yourself for what you didn’t know then or “should have” understood or figured out or whatever. We are where we are where we are and it’s the perfect place for us to be. It has to be perfect, because it is where we are.

Be in the now and be kind there–to others, yes, but first to yourself. That is what makes radiating that kindness outward possible.

[bctt tweet=”Kindness to self makes for kindness to the world. #OnMyRadar” via=”no”]

Are you being kind to you?

Your Call: Tarot Forecast, Aug 22 – 28, 2016

One recurring comment I hear from my Tarot people after readings is, “I feel no judgement coming from you.”

I was thinking about that this morning and I realized, through all the years I’ve been doing this work with a goal of being as clear a channel as I’m able? I’ve never felt a sense of disapproval from Spirit. Never. I’ve felt, go this way and that way. Guidance is there for sure! But not, approval vs. disapproval.

Spirit never counts you as unworthy of having the essence of what you want, although to be frank it will go a lot smoother if you don’t try to dictate every little detail of what route it comes, arrival time and what outfit the desire is wearing. Instead, the essence of it, the underlying feeling state, lines up for you when you’re energetically ready to receive it. (Which, readiness comes in the form of not arguing against it, using your emotions to guide you in feeling better to help nudge you towards paths that lead you there.)

One of the biggest misunderstandings I see is people wanting to know, “What does Source/Spirit/the Universe wants me to do?” I’ve never had the impression there is some mysterious checklist of life to-do’s (that you must accurately guess) to make you a worthy person living a worthy life, and other things you should or should not do that would make you an unworthy person living an unworthy life. It’s more either plugged in or a clogged connection, you know? If you’re kind and loving and happy, you’re plugged in. If you’re unkind or unloving or unhappy, your connection is clogged. It’s a continuum of connection to Source.

Every Spirit I’ve ever encountered through whatever filter used to communicate to me, there is only one overriding tone without exception–love. It’s never anything short of  complete and unconditional love, no matter what life someone is living or what life someone wants to live.

[bctt tweet=”Love is the ultimate truth. #OnMyRadar” username=”goddess_dix”]

See, it’s not a matter of “what the Universe wants you to do” or what God wants you to do, however you frame Source energy. It’s not Source’s job to make up your mind for you! As individual beings, we have very clear preferences of what we want. Spirit can yield the path in magical, miraculous-seeming ways. But that happens not because this is what Spirit has parentally determined what is best for you. Spirit indeed guides us, but it’s towards the truth of whom we’ve decided to become.

That’s what I was reminded of, looking at the week ahead. It’s your job to decide what you want.

20160819_151255_HDR

Overall, the coming week looks pretty upbeat, provided you’d rather be happy than right. If you can stay in your own lane and not worry so much about what anybody else is doing, you can have a pleasant ride. In other words, don’t micromanage life! Just manage the micro, and let the Universe work out the big stuff, okay?

Monday, Knight of Pentacles: Knock through details one at a time. Don’t bother looking at the forest or even wondering how many trees are in it. Just focus on the tree right in front of you, until you’re done with that. Methodical attention that’s fully focused one one thing at a time yields the greatest return.

Tuesday, The Chariot: Keep focused. Where you’ve come from doesn’t matter. Where you’re at doesn’t matter. How you’ll get there doesn’t matter. The Chariot calls us to reorient on how we want to feel, over and over again, to lead the way. It’s a Cancer card for God’s sakes! Cancer is ruled by the moon, which speaks to our emotions. How you feel matters and here? How you feel very directly drives how successful you are.

Wednesday, Page of Swords rx: No need to knitpick. No need to sign the dotted line just yet. Give things a minute to clarify and make sure, whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it from a place that feels good at the time. That always is the most effective action.

Thursday, The Empress: Lush creativity. Today can yield many beautiful things, if you nurture their growth be kindness, love and joy. You included. Enjoy it! Revel in the physical, creative and replenishing pleasures of the day.

Friday, Six of Pentacles: Be generous. In order to be generous with others, first come from a place of being generous with yourself. Give to yourself first–this allows you to be in a place where you have an abundance of which to share.

Saturday, Two of Wands rx: Less pushing. More allowing. Less rock, more water. Less digging in. More yielding with flexibility. Look for the path of least resistance and take it!

Sunday, The Moon: A good day for dreaming and stories and if you like? A little magic, too. Don’t get hung up on hard-core, literal reality. ‘Reality” is murky, not super clear in this energy. But the feeling tone will not and cannot lie. So instead of trying to ferret out literal truth, look through metaphor glasses today–everything you note, ask yourself, “What is this like?” instead. And you’ll see truth reflected everywhere.

Overview/Advice, Nine of Pentacles: This is largely a week for clarifying and refining the lessons you’ve been learning. The faster you’ve got the energy moving around you, the…harder you can get hit with whatever you’ve had holding you in place. That’s not a bad thing, though. It’s a very useful opportunity, to clean out that gunk in short order. The trick to cleaning up here is to get plugged in FIRST so you can act from a tuned in, inspired place. This is how you make use of that education and keep moving ahead.

Affirmation: Alligator! Alligators are known often to roll under the water after they’ve snatched their prey. The alligator reminds us our strength is often enhanced by flexibility. The alligator is powerful and his appearance is a good reminder to acknowledge our own power. The alligator lives in water – the element of intuition and emotion. So we, too, live in the same energy. Pay attention to the currents in that regard to keep your vibration clear and make your path easier. It’s all right, you know? It’s all right and you’ll get there. Just roll with it.

Are you feeling the flow? Can you let yourself in there and ride it?

Centered: Weekly Flow Tarot, May 30 – June 5

Crocheted BlanketsI have been a little crazy, with my crocheting. Like, I’ve gotten started with it and suddenly, I’m whipping it out it like a mad woman.

Yes, it’s significantly opened up my creative force. Y’all have NO IDEA how many ideas come to me when I’ve got a hook and yarn in my hand. I often keep a notebook beside me. It’s insane.

But it does a lot more.

It calms me. It’s meditative. It helps me get out of my fears or frustrations or mind chatter, wherever I happen to be, to very simply get centered.

Centered. That’s how I feel after manipulating yarn into fancy knots for a few hours.

It’s nothing short of magic. And this week? You need to grab on to what centers you and make it happen, baby!IMG_5158

There are ups and downs in the week’s forecast, as per normal. But the feeling of environmental instability is notable. So what do you do with that? You create your own stability. I’m seeing this spread as a whole as a very clear call to be responsible for staying centered. That means not getting sucked in to drama. It means speaking from the authority of what YOU feel good about, what your inner guidance system says, regardless of what outside energy is like. You carry your own calm this week. Which works wonderfully, provided you commit to the process.

Monday, Just Breathe – The Empress, rx: Self-care, not other-care, is where efforts are best focused today. I know you sometimes hurt for others. But you cannot do much for others if you’re underperforming yourself. This is PRIORITY ONE, folks.

Tuesday, Simply Love – The Wheel of Fortune: Opening the heart is magnetic–it opens up opportunities and draws others not only to you, but your work as well. Luck today comes from huge gratitude and a loving attitude. That’s where your fortune lies. Turn up the love.

Wednesday, Challenging Times/Solar Plexus Chakra – The Fool, rx: Challenging times are opportunities to identify and reclaim your own power. In this way, what we may have called “mistakes” can be rightly considered gifts. Move slowly today, and stay rooted in your own authority to fare best.

Thursday, Share the Love – The Chariot: Don’t know which way to go? Easy. What does your heart tell you? What option is most loving? Do that.

Friday, Refusing to See – Four of Cups: Some people will be distracted by their own misconceptions today. Don’t need to be one of them! Acknowledge what’s in front of you before extrapolating on it.

Saturday, Healing Begins – Knight of Wands: Listen to your heart’s desire and take steps from that place. MOVE towards what you want!

Sunday, Coming Together – Eight of Wands: So situations are not a done deal, quite yet. But? Things are moving quickly, perhaps behind the scenes. Have faith and hang in.

Overview/Advice, Find Balance – The Emperor: Do not let the pushes to and fro–from outside, or from fears or desire–lead you off center. This week, keep grounding, keep pulling back to your center, your core. Grounding exercises, in fact, are an awesome way to recharge. Do one of those millions of “being the tree, rooting in the ground” visualizations. Get outside. Participate in physical activity. Basically, whatever brings you back into your body is worthwhile. If anything upsets or bothers you this week, look to call upon your own authority to pull back to center. Don’t react; retract until you feel steady. You have the right. You have the authority to refuse to budge until you feel solid. So do it!

Affirmation from Archangel Metatron: “Call upon me to clear and open your chakras, using sacred geometric shapes.”

IMG_5159Even if you’re not into sacred geometry (and aren’t interested in pursuing it at present), you can certainly look to clear your chakras. Looking at your physical needs and honoring them. Finding space for joy and pleasure, and honoring that. Feeling and enforcing your personal power, and honoring that. Feeling the love in your heart for yourself, for those in your circle and for humanity…and honoring that. Communicating your truth, seeing with your inner eye of intuition and connecting to source–honoring each bit of your life.

Perhaps it can be a week-long quest, with each day of the week focusing on a chakra. Red for Monday, Orange for Tuesday, etc. Working with gemstones or even clothing in the colors of the rainbow will help with chakras.

Meditation–especially using mandalas–or some geometrically-based art projects or mandala coloring is another perfect activity to connect to Metatron’s healing force.

In terms of thinking of this as a weekly affirmation, I’m taking as advice to take ALL our needs into account and addressing the world’s challenges from a clear, solid place. The theme of the forecast this week is all about pulling back to center and this affirmation echos that.

Center. Ground. Stay true to who you are.

[bctt tweet=”I am solid, balanced and centered. #affirmation” username=”goddess_dix”]

Ripening: Tarot Flow Forecast, Mar 28 – Apr 3

“It’s one of the side effects of being a Tarot reader. I see people freaking the *$&# out over what’s happening or what’s not happening right this minute, right now, like the world’s ending if things don’t go the way they want. And I talk to them later and we realize, whatever it was, it just didn’t matter. Or it didn’t matter the way they thought it did. It ended up being better, or it ended up giving them something they needed. It gives you a different perspective.”

I was talking to my friend. Not being judgey. It’s really helpful to me, if you want to know the truth. It’s a lot easier to stay zen, when you see this dynamic over and over.

I try to force something to happen, no way, no how. NOT GONNA WORK!! I try to avoid it? It ends up in my lap. Maybe even years later. But when it does, enough has happened between the start and the end, I know there is more at work.

It happens when it’s supposed to. That fact: endlessly infuriating and endlessly comforting, all at the same time.

Tarot Forecast Mar 28 Apr 3 2016

Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde presently, prompting us to revisit projects we’ve started but not finished. What’s ripe, or becoming ripe? What’s over-ripe, ready to be thrown out? Do this bit first, toss and purge, to make space for the new fruit to fully ripen.

I expect this week to contain both conflict and emotionality, ups and downs, since we’re leaning pretty heavily on the Swords and Cups in this weekly spread. But there are definitely lessons and clarifications on tap, courtesy what comes up through the swordplay. Think of irksome frustrations, crabby words or other bothersome incidents as instructive, especially as metaphorical for other issues in your life.

Monday, Passion Ignited – Page of Swords Rx: To get your creative fires burning, stop talking yourself out of it! Stop putting so damned many conditions on ideas. It kills the moment. It sucks the life out of the art. Drop the self-criticism and the “Debbie Downer” scripts aimed in the mirror. That dousing of your creative fires? It’s your own doing, Grasshopper. Which is wonderful news, because that also means, it’s in your hands, oh creative one.

Tuesday, Rejoice in Celebration – Three of Cups: Sweet. This one is a double-dose of advice to celebrate all that is good with your tribe. YOUR folks, your people, whomever they may be. The Three of Cups shows up on “Rejoice in Celebration”–the Psychic Tarot Oracle’s version of the Three of Cups! (What’s Neptune doing today?)

Wednesday, New Beginnings – Ace of Cups: Let fresh starts touch your heart. And let your heart, guide you in those fresh starts. No fear. Only love. Only love.

Thursday, Waiting Game – Five of Swords: I always think of Tarot Fives as growing pains, of one sort or another. Fives are ridden with conflict, but in truth, conflict is a gift. It allows for corrections, before problems become too big to be manageable. But then again, I pretty much count everything–including drawing breath–as a gift. So consider your source. Har!

[bctt tweet=”Conflict gives the gift of drawing attention to what needs to be adjusted.”]

Friday, Emotional Loss, Knight of Swords Rx: This combination screams, “Blessing in disguise” to me. Maybe VERY well disguised, I’ll give you that. And maybe upsetting and scary, too. But definitely, losses right now can be more about perception than net reality.  As in, “Remember that thing I was so upset about? Yeah. I’m really glad it happened.”

Saturday, Base Chakra, King of Wands Rx: You know how in those little airline safety presentations, they tell you to put on your own oxygen mask first, before trying to help anybody else? That. Take care of your own basic needs, security and well being first, before looking to do the same for anyone else. It’s not a mark of selfishness. It’s a mark of smarts.

Sunday, Throat Chakra, Nine of Cups: Speak your truth today. Say what you really want to say. It brings contentment. I would expect especially nice results from expressing gratitude and thankfulness, too. Beautiful day for a heartfelt, loving conversation. So speak up!

Overview/Advice, Harmony – The Chariot Reversed: Don’t push or drive others this week. You go on your path. Others may follow or they may not. But they’ll do what they need to do. YOU do what you need to do.

Affirmation: Check Your Timing. As Shakespeare said, “Ripeness is all.” We get so wound up about what is to happen when. If it’s yuck, we want it done NOW. If it’s good, we want it here, NOW. If it’s scary, we want it either far away from us, or past us. So much of life is timing. Being in the right place, doing the right stuff.

And you know, we stress over timing. But if you get quiet and listen, you can stay in the flow. You can follow those little nudges and your timing will always be right.

I am telling myself, I’m in the perfect place for ME right now, because it perfectly represents where I am, how I’ve grown and how I need to grow. What you want but don’t have may not be a “no.” It may be a “not yet.”

This forecast features the Pagan Cat Tarot, with the Psychic Tarot Oracle to represent positions and the Creative Whack Pack for the affirmation. If you enjoy these forecasts, you’d probably like Dixie’s Book, Everyday Tarot Archives or better yet, a personal consultation.

Do you feel “ripening” in your life?

Trajectory of a Breakup: Weekly Tarot Forecast, July 20 – 26

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve had a romantic breakup. Been married 26 years! That’s a good thing.

But there are other sorts of breakups, too. Breaking up from a job, or a friend. Or even breaking up from a family member or an identity–it doesn’t matter what. The feelings of loss, realization, reassessment and integration are very similar. It’s pretty much a universal experience. And much as it can suck, it’s also pretty much a universally necessary experience. You cannot align yourself with what’s right for you if you’re still married to what’s not, you know?

Hello, Venus Retrograde! I’m looking at you. And don’t forget, Venus is not just love.

Taking this week as a whole, it looks like the trajectory of a breakup. We start out with potential pity party–seating for one–but as the week progresses, we’ll have the opportunity of coming out of it not only feeling good, be actually paving the way for better. From Monday (stop feeling sorry for yourself!) to Tuesday (acknowledge what you’re actually dealing with, no dramatic license), to Wednesday (decide what kind of person you want to be), that takes us to to Thursday (Ooops, we haven’t really been always our best, huh?) and Friday (but we can be, if we make adjustments). Saturday (hey, we HAVE made progress) and Sunday (being gentle with the less enlightened) rounds out the week.

Where is this all going? Advice says, God only knows so stay flexible–but do your best to be happy anyway! [bctt tweet=”Personal happiness is an often-unacknowledged service to humanity.”]

july 20-26

Monday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Suppression/Ten of Wands: What’s bringing you down? How you think about it, Sparky. It’s all in the perspective. If you feel heavy, look a little lighter outlook. Attitude adjustment, well advised.

Tuesday, Crowning Influences – Maturity/Ace of Pentacles reversed: What’s come to fruition? That’s what you have to deal with here. Not what should have happened, not what you would have wanted to happen. What you’ve got, right smack in front of you. Forget the alternate scripts, and stick to the facts today. It will work much better that way. [Aside – What’s up with making the Ace “Maturity?” ‘Cause the Ace I’d expect to be young, and Maturity to be more Queenish.]

Wednesday, Conscious Desires – The Miser/Four of Pentacles reversed: Wish to be more generous and brave. You can do that! Don’t fuss at yourself for where you feel you fall short. Look for ways to stretch. And thank you, for adding to the love and light in the world, man.

Thursday, Cons – Existence/The Magician: The challenges you are dealing with are real, entrenched–and possibly not any the easier with a realization of your own role. Don’t settle for victim status, even if you were “done wrong.” Review your own involvement in whatever situations you have on hand, because that’s a point of power for the future.

Friday, Outcome – Awareness/The Chariot: Clarity and breakthroughs today. Facing up to yourself is rough work, but pays significant dividends.

Saturday, Pros – Past Lives/The Moon reversed: Reflecting on the past offers a better measuring stick of growth than just about anything else right about now. See how far you’ve come? See how much crazy you’ve left behind? Go you!

Sunday, What to Avoid – Thunderbolt/The Tower reversed: Don’t smack-down or shock others today, right or not. Be truthful, always, but also considerate and kind in your honesty. It is much less disruptive and persuasion is a much sweeter route.

Overview/Advice, Future Life – Possibilities/Two of Wands reversed: Be open to exploring what you have never considered. Plan in pencil. Sometimes the Universe has a different agenda.

Affirmation: My greatest gift to give is my happiness. I used to always say, if your happiness depends on other people’s behavior, you’re on dicey ground. That’s dangerous! And if you can hold on to your optimism regardless of the situation, you can lighten the load for any around you. People NEED optimism. People NEED encouragement. People need happiness! It feeds them, and encourages and cheers them. Just like misery and pain rub off, so does joy. No matter what your life, your state, your situation or your company, joy brings up the energy in the room. That’s a pretty good gift to show up with, don’t you think?

Are you in the process of “breaking up” with anything?
