Timely Unfolding Tarot, Aug 7 – 13

Quantum leaps always sound so great, don’t they?

I want to get from where I am, to ========> over here, NOW.

Now, now, now.

Cue Veruca Salt.

I get it. I do.

But quantum leaps often don’t feel better than gradual, steady progress forward in the real-world living.

Quantum leaps usually come from Tower moments–significant disruption. They are disorienting and often born out of crisis or boiling point. They are intense. They can be challenging.

Whereas steady step, step, step in the direction you want to go? Much easier.

Trying to force or push a big jump forward is usually fruitless anyway. Instead, settle for an ongoing reorientation towards how you want to feel, over and over and over. Reorient towards the feeling place you want to be the same way you’d check your travel route against a map. That will carry you through and it’s a whole lot easier than trying to will yourself to teleport.

The flow of next week pretty much jumps out here: slight sludge through the start, swinging into brighter weather midweek and ending on a high note. The beginning isn’t awful, it’s just got the potential to be twitchy here and there. So take it slow and steady and be kind to yourself through the process. Making peace with wherever you are will allow the smoothest flow.

Monday, Queen of Wands rx – Keep your temper monitored to keep from turning into a McCrankyPants. Because that’s no fun for anybody. Just take your time through the day and any time anything isn’t where you want it to be? Take a step back. Breathe deeply, in and out. It’s not hard to stay on solid ground here as long as you remain aware of your emotional state and make any adjustments before it gets ramped up. I don’t see this as an overwhelmingly intense day. Just little pokes here and there, which are easy enough to sidestep if you’ve decided beforehand, you will sidestep.

Tuesday, Moon rx – Scorpio moon day. There’s a sort of wariness, like the theme is “undercurrent.” I would almost say, it’s something like air has some thickness with what’s not being said. Nothing to do with it. Just don’t go full-on paranoid if you are feeling this, because the week sorts itself out within a day or so.  I’d suggest invoking your Scorpio power and observe the Hell out of it all. And happy birthday to my Kidlet!

Wednesday, Six of Cups rx – A relaxing of scrutiny. Overall the tone is lightening up here and the sense of sloughing through is largely lifted by this evening. Have a relaxing evening.

Thursday, Knight of Cups – Appreciation flows freely today, back and forth. Focus on what you love and share the wealth by letting people know you appreciate them. It can be little or big, those close to you or at random strangers. But if you make the choice to focus on appreciation, it returns exponentially.

Friday, The Lovers – A harmonious day! This feels easy and fun to me. Clicking into place. Enjoy your day!

Overview/Advice, Judgement – Do the best you can individually and don’t concern yourself with what others say of you or what they do themselves. All things will sort themselves out in the end. This is a “keep your eyes on your own paper and let God sort it out” kind of week. If you do that, though, you’ll be able to glide through and feel pretty good. So do it!

Affirmation – You know what to do. You get quiet and peaceful and as calm as you can. You allow yourself to plug in. And then? You act when you feel the inspiration, doing what feels the best.

Your connection never goes away. You just have to shut the brain up long enough to hear it. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Everything happens in the time and place that can allow for it, and not before (or after). If you approach the week ahead with patience, and a slow, steady determination to make the best of wherever you find yourself, you can have a pleasant week overall and make some progress toward what you want. Doesn’t that sound like a plan?

It’s my plan!

In short: don’t bitch at yourself if your life hasn’t unfolded just so. You’re not done! The flower blooms at just the right time and so do you. Patience isn’t so much a virtue here as a provider of some ease. I’m all about taking the ease whenever possible.

Priority is your peace of mind and connection. If you keep coming back to that, maintain your center, then everything else smooths for your path. I’ll take it!

How you doing?

Dealing with Insecurities: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 15 – 21

thumbnail

Next week in Tarot

You know how people who are insecure sometimes act like they are super-duper important, to try and cover those feelings up? And you know how that tactic just leaves people feeling even more insecure?

Or sometimes, people just allow themselves to feel insecure, but forge ahead as best they can anyway. They may acknowledge or just tolerate it, but not give those feelings much weight because however uncomfortable, we all feel that way sometimes.

That appears to be the theme this week. You get to pick which strategy to implement, and will likely run across both in others. Hello, Neptune retrograde!

Aside: So, I noticed last week, I left out interpretations for the weekend. Ooops! Sorry. I will continue to blame it on Mercury Retrograde. But after the fact…Saturday was under the topical category of “The Universe,” showing the Seven of Cups; Sunday was “Love Begins” showing The Lovers. So maybe Saturday was confusing, perhaps on a number of levels. Sunday, probably a good day for a date night.

Monday, Authority – The Fool: I’d avoid dropping declarations for the sake of hearing yourself talk, you know? Potential for annoying or arbitrary rule-setting behavior. Bosses may have odd, potentially nonsensical requirements. Or it could go the other way: authorities might be playful, energetic and encouraging ideas. It really can go either way with the Fool, but we’re definitely talking about authority figures of any ilk. If you’re the one in charge–or think you are, ha!–approach leadership with an open-minded sense of wonder and adventure. This will save you from being an ass. Because that fool? He can be annoyingly, utterly clueless or he can be the perfect embodiment of “beginner’s mind,” full of creative discovery. It’s all in how you live his energy.

Tuesday, Victory & Success/Heart Chakra – The World: All-inclusive kindness wins today. Act with a genuinely generous, “love-for-everybody” sort of approach. Take the lead too, okay? Not a “let’s see what s/he does first” deal. A loving attitude will lead to both recognition and success. Better yet, others will tend to follow the lead set, so the importance of setting a positive tone is amplified. Everything, approach it from a heart-centered space! You’ll be glad you did.

Wednesday, Sacrifice – Page of Wands: You may have to delay creative endeavors, a work project, or a fun activity (especially physical activities) due to more pressing concerns. This feels like giving up your preferences because something else is more important right now. Sorry, but that’s how it goes sometimes. Flexibility is your friend. It may seem like nothing is getting worked out during the wait, but that’s not the case. You’ll know what’s right, so do that.

Thursday, Patience & Prosperity – Eight of Swords reversed: You want to move ahead? Need to break through a sense of being stuck? Look closely at the stories you tell yourself in your head, because there is likely inaccuracy in the narrative. The Eight of Swords is a card of self-imprisonment, not outside circumstance. Reversed, you have the opportunity to drop that illusion of impossible inevitability so you can make immediate progress. This is a loophole I’d always recommend exploiting.

Friday, Truth – Six of Wands reversed: There may be a temptation to put a little spin on stories, making yourself out to be a bit more of hero than you actually are. It’s not necessary to white-wash. The reality? Already good enough. Self-aggrandizement sticks out today with a huge whiff of “phony.” If you’re on the listening end, know the majority of what you’re hearing is accurate, save for some vanity flourishes. Ego’s gonna do what ego’s gonna do, man. But I’m telling you, if you exaggerate to make yourself look good, it won’t. Stick to the facts. They (and you) really are enough already.

Saturday, Fulfillment of Wishes – Queen of Pentacles: Ahhhh! This looks so relaxing. A great day for a walk, picnic, massage, or hearty dinner.  Sensual pleasures and physical indulgences make for a perfect weekend day. Sleep in, eat well and enjoy yourself if you can. Happy Saturday!

Sunday, Stand your Ground – Ten of Pentacles: Stick up for your people, should the occasion to do so arise. Defend your family. Especially look to protect familial business interests or material resources. I’m not saying the need will be dire. I’m just saying if you see any need, if there is an opportunity to speak or act on behalf of your family, do so–even if, or especially if, the opinion is not popular.

Overview/Advice – Hermit reversed: Don’t isolate, and don’t overthink your choices. I’d say, your gut already knows what to do. You know how they say on tests, to go with your first instinct and not over-think? When you repeatedly question your answers, you often end up changing correct ones for incorrect ones. It’s like that. Don’t obsess. Just do.

Affirmation, You Know What to Do – Archangel Uriel: “Trust your inner knowledge, and act upon it without delay.”  Not to go all Stuart Smalley on you, but you’re good enough, and smart enough, and doggone it, people do like you! Not everybody, of course. But enough, of the right people. Your people.

You have a sense of what to do. You already are enough, to accomplish it. Will you become more? Sure, that’s part of living. But a person doesn’t grow into who they want to become from passively waiting for “it” to happen, whatever the Hell “it” is. We grow through living. Don’t worry so much. Don’t try to act more important that you feel–it draws attention to the insecurity you’d like to deny like a neon arrow. All in all, it’s a very good week not to take yourself too seriously. Just do the best you can, speaking true with good intention and a kind attitude.

Of course, speaking true, with good intention and a kind attitude is a pretty decent way to live, any week.

Are you seeing (or feeling) a lot of insecurities lately?
