Everyday Tarot, 07/30/11: Through Rocky Waters


Non-refundable ticket.


Chaos: we’ve got it! Disruption, confusion, and upheaval, complicated by the responsibility of keeping it all in check (because it impacts more than just the individual), not to mention aiming to function throughout. There’s no doubt something useful or important can be salvaged from this mess before it’s all over, but it’s damn hard to feel the lighter side right now. Sorry!

We’ve got the Two of Pentacles, The Tower and the Chariot on the left—it’s been a strain, trying to hold it all together, you know? The realization that a completely intact building doesn’t collapse is of little solace when you’ve been living in that building and didn’t want to move! Forces are pulling in opposing directions, amplifying the amount of control required to divide energy.

mystical--riverThe Lovers teams with the Six of Swords on the right. The Six of Swords is a card of insight, but it’s not a “High Priestess” flavor of deep, intuitive knowing. The Six of Swords perspective is hard-won, every shred of understanding well earned and paid for in full. The Lovers clue us in that this journey isn’t in search of balance between opposing forces, but to the space where you give what you can marry all the energy into a more unified whole, better reflecting your strength, values and intention. We’re traveling through the rocky waters in a boat full of sharp swords in search of harmony…

It’s no longer about who wins and who loses, fairness over who carries whom. It’s about finding that sweet spot, accepting weakness without judgment, but simultaneously building on and acting in concert with strengths. Lack of rancor does not equal stagnation. To get there, you must be willing to redefine the landscape. Travel plans have to remain flexible to incorporate changes of itinerary as you integrate and process the experience.

It’s not exactly a cushy ride. But it is a necessary and important trip. So make the best of it, okay?

You moving through rocky waters?

Everyday Tarot, 06/03/11: Safe Trip – Chariot / Ace Pent. / Hierophant


When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others. – Peace Pilgrim

With all this Mercurial energy flirting with Neptune, I’ve been seeing nothing but lack of clarity everywhere I turn. I was looking for a little direction and definition when I pulled out the cards for Today’s Tarot forecast, thinking I should pull extras because I knew one wouldn’t be clear enough! So I opted for a simple, 3-card Mind / Body / Spirit spread.
