Two of Wands: You Can’t Please Everyone, So…

What do you do, when you can’t make someone happy?

Maybe you’re connected to someone in a way that’s not going to change. You want the relationship to work and be pleasant.

But despite your best efforts, that’s not happening. 

We often think if we can find the right (read: “magic”) words, the right approach or compromise or explanation, that would fix everthing. But it doesn’t.

This question has been on my radar recently and the answer is simpler than it would seem at first glance.

Nobody can truly understand what’s going on in the head of someone else. Nor do we need to. Your job is always YOU. 

If it doesn’t feel good, detach from it. Step back. Don’t make it your job to fix the other person or the situation. Just love ’em and give ’em some space.

It reminds me of the old song, Garden Party. “You can’t please everyone, so you have to please yourself.”

Priority one is being happy yourself. Let the rest of the bastards fend for themselves here.  Which takes us to next week’s forecast.

Next Week in Tarot

Outlook is the Two of Wands, with advice as the Ten of Cups (from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot deck).

Got a quick video forecast for you if you want to hear me say it. 😉

There will be choices this week. At times, your needs and desires may feel pitted against the rest of the world. But let your heart guide you.

Comfort and what feels most “at home” for you is the best guide. These decisions are best made outside the scope of pleasing anyone else.

This is actually better advice (for all the time) than you may think at first. If you stick true to your core and lovingly let other people determine their own feelings and experience, life gets a whole lot easier very quickly.

Try it with any challenging relationship. You don’t decide what someone else does or doesn’t do. Instead, you’re deciding what role (if any) you feel at home playing a part in. That’s it. Suddenly, life simplified.

Hope this is helpful and go out there and have an awesome week, folks! ♥


I will be doing some 2020 Holiday Year Ahead Readings as I sometimes do. The details of the special will be announced in a few days, so if you’re interested in what next year will bring for you, keep a lookout. As always, if you’d like a personal or issue-focused consult, you know where to find me!

Benefit of the Doubt: Tarot Forecast, Dec 12 – 18, 2016

My kids give me shit about my age sometimes, but truth is I don’t really care how old I am. Not that I’m going to admit that. I will tell them to shut up anyway. But in truth, I like where I am, and look to always like where I am.

Isn’t that the mark of a happy person?

Being at peace with wherever you are. Liking yourself. Knowing your life is your own and it’s worked from the inside-out. How you focus determines your experience.

Energetic weather in the wild is kinda wonky right now. At least, the way I’m feeling it. Intense, fast-moving. Ups are way high and the lows are way low and they both are shifting poles pretty rapidly. So it’s good to have some coping skills on hand.

Finding and holding your center will do you a world of good under these conditions (or any, really). What we’re shooting for here is an inner knowing that it’s okay, a sense of realizing who you are and who you want to be and that nothing can rock your peace. Your calm. Your happiness and sense of who you are.

Easier said than done? Sometimes. But it becomes easier and easier to maintain this stance, the more you practice it.

Practice when it’s easy and when conditions become less than optimal, it will be your default setting. Look for ways to feel good, as much as you can. Appreciate whatever you can. Live as happy as you can. And don’t bother with what anybody else is living. You cannot vibrate for another and you cannot force them to your perspective.

But you can look to keep your perspective as pliable and possible. You can do your best to make peace with your now, being true to who you really are. You can stay centered in your respect for yourself. Everything else will form around that core if you keep steady to that energy.

There’s a joke, where I live. “Don’t like the weather in Kansas? Wait five minutes, it will change.”

I didn’t say it was a funny joke.

But next week? It is a lot like that.

The good news in that is that whatever is utterly under your skin on one day? Probably be a non-issue within 24 hours. It’s a quick-change week, so don’t get too wrapped up in any sort of drama because it will be short-lived. That’s something to work with, huh? So let’s hit the day-by-day play-by-play.

Monday, Death: Might be a tough day. Sorry! Could even be an ugly or upsetting event in the news. In a short-term forecast, the “weightier” cards like Death don’t have the same implications as other, longer term readings, though, so no need to get overly wrought up. But do understand the day may have some heavy or difficult energy, nonetheless. It is what it is, but don’t worry about it much because why? Look at tomorrow.

Tuesday, The Sun: Pretty much the exact opposite emotional tone from yesterday. Yay! It’s a great time for fun activities. Look for things to appreciate and feel joyful, and make the most of these kind of days when you get them. Enjoy! Because that’s why we’re here.

Wednesday, Knight of Wands rx: Progress is happening, even if you feel impatient about it. I’m seeing someone tap, tap, tapping their foot. But do know we’re moving forward and call upon your patience mojo. It’s totally warranted.

Thursday, Queen of Wands: Perfect follow-up to yesterday. See? Here’s evidence of the progress we’re making. Enjoy the progress. It’s a good creative day, with lots of room for joy.

Friday, High Priestess: Action? Not so much. Turn inward, get grounded and have quiet, reflective time. Meditation is super-charged. Intuition is right on. Passive, receptive trust in your knowing. And know everything is okay.

Saturday, Hanged Man rx: Antsy feeling, like a drive to do something, do something, do something. The picture folks have conjured is not entirely clear. Postpone action a bit and work on your faith. Get your mindset CLEAR, before you take action. If you don’t have the faith in place, don’t make the phone call, write the letter or whatever. Faith comes first and don’t move on anythign until you got it.

Sunday, Eight of Cups rx: Want to toss up your hands to walk away? You’re not quite ready. The situation isn’t there, all the facts are not out, etc. Just trust! Keep working on the faith. We’re getting there…

Overview/Advice, Two of Wands: Pointing towards a couple of things. Standing your ground, being firm and convinced in what’s right for you and settling in for that. Not activism or convincing others, but for YOU. The second element that’s highlighted here is paitence. It’s a longer term energy, the long game for this coming week. There are ups and down, but breathe deeply, take your time, and let it unfold at it’s own pace. MAKE PEACE with where you are. Rushing won’t get you away from what you’re unhappy with…get where you want emotionally first, and the outer circumstances morph accordingly.

Affirmation: “I am developing the skill to direct my thoughts.” You may not realize how much impact this has. We’re not truly responding to what’s happening outside ourselves. It’s what’s happening in our heads! You can have the exact same experience, but whether it’s Heaven or Hell is determined by what you’re thinking about it.

Any new circumstance you’re exploring, do an emotional temperature check. See how you’re feeling about it. If you’re feeling uneasy, uncomfortable for any reason, look to shift your thoughts. If you do this early on before you get a lot of momentum, it’s much easier to shift. If you can shift up the emotional tone of the situation, you completely shift your experience. This changes the outcome. A lot of what is good or bad in your experience, as in pretty much ALL of it, is a function of how you think about it, which determines how you feel about it. This week, practice checking in on your feelings and ask, “Is there a way I could think about this that would feel a little better?” Don’t worry if that something you could think would be considered “true” as some kind of objective reality. Just look at ways to frame it to feel better and choose that.

[bctt tweet=”The benefit of a doubt is really a gift for yourself. #OnMyRadar” via=”no”]

We talk about giving someone else the “benefit of the doubt” as if it’s really about the other person, a gift of some sort. It’s not. But it’s definitely a gift. See, regardless of the situation and regardless of how convinced you are that it’s likely one way or another, you can still assume it’s coming from a malicious, ugly place (and maybe it is), or you can assume no ill-intention as default (and maybe that’s true, too). Even if it’s coming from an ugly place, getting upset about it doesn’t help you and your experience. If you assume even the ugly is not about you because it never is–even if the other person thinks it is, it’s still about how they look at the world–then you’ll have a much happier life.

Personally? I think that’s a very awesome gift!

Are you free with your benefit of a doubt?

Looking for What You Like: Tarot Forecast, Sept 26 – Oct 2

Back in the days when I worked in an office. I liked to give out cards at Christmas. Maybe stick a candy cane to them or something. But the real gift was the note inside.

For each person I worked with, I would spend a little while and write out a handwritten note of appreciation, mentioning something I particularly liked or enjoyed about them. I wanted each note to be personal, and completely heartfelt.

Sounds lovely, huh?

But you know the problem with that, right?

There’s always “that one guy,” or “that woman…” agh! The one that gets under your skin and drives you crazy.

“I don’t wanna do a note for So-and-So,” I’d think, a little belligerently, to tell the truth. Except it would be pretty rude to hand out sweet notes to everybody but that one.

This meant a few of my cards took an extra long time to compose. These challenging cards required me to step outside my ego a little bit and relax the defensive stance long enough to find something true, uplifting and kind in my heart to say about the somebody who absolutely drove me batty.

Funny thing, about those tough-to-write notes? While my notes were well received in general, the hard ones were the best received and without exception, my interactions always improved after writing one of those harder notes.

This week is a lot like that. Look for what you like–even if it’s harder to see than what’s in your face–and you’ll do well.

20160924_122728_hdr

Audio Version of This Forecast – more rambly goodness.

Monday, Future – Four of Wands rx: Don’t run too far into the future, in your head. Don’t make a big deal out of, “Where is this going, where is this going, where is this going?” There is a lot of wiggle room in the energy right now. Wrong turns may be just the break you need. So get your chill on.

Tuesday, Unconscious Desires – Knight of Pentacles rx: It’s okay to want what you want. More money, more stuff, more friends, more comfort. It’s ALL okay to want, whatever it is you want, for yourself, without guilt. Your suffering does not add to the life of another. Lifting up yourself is contributing to the whole at the same time. If you find yourself fussing about wants, allow yourself the space to like what you like without guilt. Appreciate what is already around you; that will clear up any wobbles in your vibe in very short order.

Wednesday, What to Avoid – Ace of Cups: Normally, the Ace of Cups would be a small feeling, one that’s just taking root. So practice an awareness of your emotions. If you find yourself out of emotional sorts, actively look to soften that emotion and get re-centered. So back off from the specific negatives to more generally negative…to more generally positive. Any uncomfortable emotion, look to soften it up in the early stages before it gets bigger.

[bctt tweet=”Shift toward positive emotions when feelings are little, before they’ve grown. #OnMyRadar”]

Thursday, Cons & Friendships – Two of Wands rx: Be aware of the egos of friends – or how they may step on your ego’s toes. There is no need for everybody to see things the same way. Your job is not to set anyone else’s vision. It’s to be true to your own vision. Today, the work is not to gain widespread agreement. The work is to live what you know.

Friday, Lesson – Empress: Nurture yourself! Self-care is awesome. Arts and crafts, or any kind of creative project, is especially rejuvenating. Soothe yourself and be gentle with you.

Saturday, Problem – The Fool: This combination says, the issue is what you don’t know. Your job is to gather more info. It’s a day for fact finding.

Sunday, Finances – Death rx: Ugh! No, I’m not going to say, “Your bank account looks like death warmed over.” Because, c’mon! But I will say, if you have been working on finances? You’ve made strides. To go further, add more harmony in your life and less discord. Don’t fight about money with anybody. Out loud or in your head, don’t bother with how anybody else believes money should be spent. Look for areas of agreement, and ignore other stuff. Think of a field that’s been burned out, with new seedlings germinating and popping up. It takes time, so be patient! Let it be and it will shift.

Overview/Advice, Blocking or Covering – Page of Wands rx: Stress from people pulling different ways this week. Don’t be overbearing in advocating for your opinion or option. You don’t have to agree with everybody or anybody. Just look to understand other perspectives. That is enough.

Affirmation – The better it gets, the better it gets. You will find what you’re looking for. So if you’re looking for ways to correct you kid, you’ll find issue after issue after issue to correct. If you’re looking for awesome things about your kid, you’ll find that, over and over and over, again too. Look for what you love. Don’t push against anything this week. It’s fine, not to find harmony with everybody and everything.  Just look for what you like. And have an awesome week!

Do you try to look for what you like in situations?

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?

Get Off of My Cloud: Weekly Tarot, July 18 – 24

If you could go back in time and do it all over again, would you?

I’m not talking about Marty McFly noting the winning sports teams. I mean reliving your life, making those choices that led you from your start in this lifetime to where you are, now.

Because I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t even entertain the notion.

It’s not because I couldn’t find things to do differently. Oh man, could I!

But I like who I am. I realize, every day that preceded, every choice and every word and every action, helped lead me here. It helped me create who I am, now. I did the best I knew how to in the moment, and through that, I’ve grown. I’ve learned. I’ve experienced. All that stuff I didn’t want helped me clarify what I do want. All the ways I didn’t like being helped me see, how I do like being now.

I don’t believe in guilt. It’s an utterly useless emotion–feeling bad about what cannot be changed poisons us in the present and keeps us from living fully in the now, the single place where we have any power whatsoever. Worry over the future serves a similar function. It takes us out of our now and shifts our experience from whatever goodness we have at our fingertips to virtually living an experience we don’t want.

No. Just, no.

My path is MY path. Those who share the road with me are not inhabitants of my path and my path does not determine theirs. There are no do-overs. There are no try-harders. There is only now, now, now.

This is my cloud. You can come visit if you like and we are vibing similarly. Or not. But right now, it’s a very good idea to be selective, who and what you invite onto your cloud.

20160716_134328_HDR

As I look over this week, the outstanding impression I get is the importance of staying grounded in your own well-being. It’s anything but a static week. The cues from the outside world may well be inconsistent and fast-changing. Plugging in to the mass consciousness vibe will be like a roller coaster: up, down, fast, slow, hither and yon. Not stable at all! The cues within, you have control over by direction your thoughts and attention. I’m not suggesting you don’t care about the world. I’m suggesting you care about the world and everyone in it (which, ahem, includes you) enough to make sure YOU are not adding to the chaos. How? By consciously managing your own vibe.

Stay in the love, folks. Stay in the love–and if anything or anybody makes you wobble in that love? Retreat and get yourself right back there. You do that, and your light contributes to eradicating the darkness.

You do more good to yourself and the world at large by staying in the love than anything else you can do.

Monday, Two of Wands: No need for a stand-off with conflicting desires (either within you, or between you and another). Just let them all be for now and allow the time for clarity to do it’s work by emerging from the confusion. There’s a tendency to want to push back, push back. But instead, stand back, stand back. Let it marinate today.

Tuesday, Wheel of Fortune: Click, click, click into place. A lucky break may show up, or a bit of good fortune, boom! At your feel. Celebrate it, for sure. But also? Know the days that don’t feel quite as lucky are still filled to the brim with good things. You just have to acknowledge them to turn them up.

Wednesday, Six of Cups rx: Do you have faith? Do you trust? Think of your level of trust and knowing here as “what’s in the water.” The more you drink of it, the greater the blessings you allow in. There is a tendency to question goodness today and look for who’s out to hurt you. Don’t. It’s not a time to count grievances. Turn up your blessings by counting THOSE.

Thursday, Page of Cups rx: Moody, temperamental day for many. The upside? These emotional states are very fast-moving. So if you’re got a mood going you don’t dig, it’s not hard to turn it around with a little distraction and conscious cultivation of the feeling state you’d prefer.  And if you’re already feeling what you like? Well, milk it a bit and enjoy the ride. Hugs and naps are great medicine today.

Friday, The Emperor: Care SO MUCH about how you feel that you’re unwilling to compromise on feeling good. So much of our energy can go to trying to please others–an impossible task if ever there was one. You don’t have to be a mirror for the emotional state of others. Instead, be the example for the others to mirror (if they so choose, or not, if they don’t choose). You are in control of your own feelings, so take advantage of that!

[bctt tweet=”Nobody can climb on your cloud unless hand ’em a ticket. #OnMyRadar ” username=”goddess_dix”]

Saturday, Seven of Wands: Stand firm in what you know to be true for you and ignore anyone or anything that is not in alignment with your understanding. Shortly, those that don’t vibrate on your frequency will disappear from your circle of experience.

Sunday, Queen of Swords rx: It’s a good time to retreat and sort through what you’ve got going. Be it physical stuff or emotional engagements or whatever, prioritize and sort. Put your attention on what matters to you, what feels good, and let go what does not. This isn’t a judgey thing. It’s a being happier thing.

Overview/Advice, The Hermit: Declare yourself observer and student this week. Rather than emotionally engage in everything you see, step back and study it. Notice and look for trends. Spend plenty of quiet time, alone time, and replenishing time. Meditation is a great idea! Peacefulness and mindfulness helps you stay grounded in the midst of anyone else’s negative emotions. You don’t have to sign on for that class, you know? You can step back and stay out of the storm. In fact, it’s highly advised.

My inner being guides me through my emotions. When you feel bad, it’s not punishment or karma or random chance. It’s a signal, that how you’re looking at the world is not in sync with how your higher self sees it. We may perceive lack and pain and chaos. But in the bigger picture, the way spirit sees the world, everything is happening in the right place at the right time. I know that sounds like a contradiction but it’s not. There is a an infinite diversity to life experience and sometimes even the most unpleasant ones lead beauty and grace. No matter what you’re feeling in any given time, look for the feeling one step up, one step up, one step up. This IS your emotional guidance system and it’s all you need to stay in strong alignment with spirit. The better you feel, the easier it is to remain connected and the stronger that connection is. So just look at all emotion as your inner GPS, guiding you to greater happiness and fulfillment. And for that to work, we must rely on all emotion, wanted or not, since all of it provides valuable information.

Be well out there!

Shine Your Light: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 13 – 19, 2016

I’ll never forget when I came out of the Woo closet.

It was simultaneously among the most terrifiying and exhilerating things I’d ever done. Saturn was in Virgo in my first house, and I felt compelled to self-define honestly. It seemed important, if dangerous. (I still made most of my living pushing pixels and fixing websites at the time.)

While I ran across a few eye rolls–some literal, some metaphorical–overall? It was kind of a big, fat nothing. Heck, some folks even shared with me their own woo orientations. I never would have guessed.

Because you don’t know. How could you? People hide. I hid. I get it.

Beyond that, though, most people are far too busy worrying about what you think of them to think all that much of you. And those who aren’t, who get all twisted up and scandalized becauase you’re not them?

Not really worth offering free rent  in your head.

Being TRUE to yourself, allowing your inner light to shine, is a huge service. It helps encourage others to do the same. So shine your true light, my friend. We NEED you!

IMG_5166

We have a large amount of reversals in the spread. Six of the eight cards I pulled were reversed! If this had been a client reading, I probably would have acknowledged it’s a very difficult, slow-moving time, like trudging through molasses, and turned them upright to simplify interpretation. But it’s not a client reading and they spoke to me just fine, how they showed up.

The overall sense I’ve got this week is one of feeling out of step with those around you. Not a miserable, overwhelming kind of thing. More like, “If people really knew me, knew who I really am, I’d be utterly rejected. Must maintain cover.” And it’s the attempts to maintain your cover–appear as a complaint, respectable member of the community when you feel anything but–that’s got the potential to trip you up.

So don’t do it. Your best guidance system this week (and any other) is your internal one. Nothing else matters.

[bctt tweet=”Stand up and BE, even if you’re standing alone.” username=”goddess_dix”]

Monday, Darkest Fears/Sacral Chakra – Eight of Swords Reversed: A buried worry, that you’ll be forever miserable and it will be your own damn fault. You can get past this two ways: 1.) Look for ways to laugh at what’s going wrong. Make a game of it. And 2.) Seek out thoughts, activities and company that you KNOW brings you joy. It’s easy to shift out of this “trapped” mindset. All it mostly takes is the decision. In other words, most of the bad mood mojo today is not entrenched and not permanent. Consciously shifting your perspective will lift you right back up.

Tuesday, Feeling Alone – Ten of Pentacles: It’s easy enough to feel alone in a crowd, depending on the crowd. Look for your people to reconnect if you’re feeling cut off. And if that’s not cutting it for you? Enjoy your own company. The feelings of isolation will pass.

Wednesday, Blossom – The World Reversed: Your job today has nothing to do with what’s expected of you, and everything to do with who you are on the inside. Favor that.

Thursday, Success & Growth – Ace of Wands: Follow your heart and what you love for the win!

Friday, Spread Your Wings – Nine of Cups Reversed: Expand your definition of “wonderful,” and your life will expand to fit it.

Saturday, Lead – Two of Swords Reversed: Quit waffling and just make a decision already. The world will follow suit afterward. It’s usually not so much making the “right” decision or “wrong” decision as it is about doing SOMETHING. You adjust as you go.

Sunday, Release – Two of Wands Reversed: Release old stand-offs taking up space in your head. Not worth your time. Don’t wait for anyone else to bury the hatchet. Because don’t you have better things to do than even bothering?

Overview/Advice, Heal – Five of Cups Reversed: Mourning does soften over time. Allow it. Feeling it come and go like the waves on a shore? This is a natural part of the healing process.

IMG_5164Affirmation – Relationship Harmony from Archangel Raguel: “We angels are opening the hearts of everyone involved. Arguments and conflicts are being resolved now.” No matter what the discord, you are best served by keeping a soft heart, as much as you can. Not freezing it up. Not forgetting boundaries or dropping your own needs at the curb. But looking at life, at relationships, at everything, with a softer, more compassionate heart.

That’s not excusing or approving. It’s just not letting life–or anyone in your life–decide for YOU. If someone doesn’t fit into your circle, they’ll evacuate it soon enough. The most important thing is to remember who YOU are and no matter what’s happening about you, stay solid on that note.

You feeling a little misfit lately?
