Waterlogged: Tarot Flow, Aug. 17 – 23, 2015

It was late at night; I was laying on the couch. I had been crying–so much crying, there were no tears left. Exhausted but not sleepy, I just watched tree branch outlines shimmy back and forth through the window shade, rhythmic outlines, back and forth like the hypnotist’s swaying watch. There was just nothing left…no thoughts that hadn’t already been thought to death. No emotions that hadn’t been cried out. And nothing to do, nothing at all.

I didn’t know where I was going, but I knew for sure: it was going to be different. 

Looking at this forecast, I’m remembering that night, mid Pluto transit. Because this week’s forecast, is like what followed that night. I surrendered, because there were no other option. The gift of surrender, however, is the fresh start that follows.

Weekly Tarot Forecast

Looking at this layout, I’m expecting one emotional week! Lots of cups and water-related cards. I would hasten to add, “emotional” doesn’t equal “bad emotions.” But it may not be all fun, and without question, a bit on the intense side. The absence of swords entirely–the mental element–is quite notable.

Did you set an intention for the recent Leo new moon? Because this week, it looks like lots of potential for take-off with a dramatic flair! Just know that you’ll likely be taking off with a case of the feels, man.

Monday, Disruption – Creativity, The Empress: It’s funny to see the Empress associated with disruption. Usually, I think of her as being so calming, maternal figure that she is. But then I remember, the Empress is Venus energy, and Venus is retrograde. Of course, the card is inverted. Today, I expect bits of the past to stir the pot in the present, particularly in areas of love, money and creativity. Artistic or creative endeavors can make an impact and have a special power to show truth that isn’t understood otherwise. Metaphor packs a punch, too.

Tuesday, Patience and Planning – Innocence, The Sun: Not the day to be jaded. Look at projects and plans with fresh eyes, and try to inject solid, happy energy. Approach any goal setting with the eyes of a child, no preconceived notions. Look to cultivate Beginner’s’ Mind.

Wednesday, Passion Ignited – Trust, Knight of Cups: Big admonition to go with your heart and let the Universe sort out the details. This is loud and clear, y’all. Take that leap of faith.

Thursday, Harmony (with Base/Security & Throat/Communication Chakras) – Healing, King of Cups inverted: Who you are and what you say need to be sync with how you live. Anywhere that is it not in harmony creates pain. I don’t care about the “why it’s not” part. I’m sure you have good reasons. I’m just saying, living out of step with your inner self leaves you feeling insecure, insincere, and wounded. Look to align. It’s worth the trouble.

Friday, Light – Playfulness, Page of Wands inverted: Yes there is work to be done, but do it with your playful side intact. Don’t rain on your own parade! A light-hearted, fun approach gains more traction, even if you have to stretch a bit at first to introduce it.

Saturday, Accelerated Motion – Ripeness, 9 of Pentacles: Ah, blessed sweet progress! Efforts show payoff, and it feels like the world is truly moving. This feels to me more like an understanding, a connecting of the dots, than outward changes. Realization of how far you’ve come.

Sunday, Firm Foundation – Inner Voice, High Priestess: Do you need me to spell this out? Probably not! You know which way to go. That little voice inside is telling you. If your anxiety is drowning it out, get quiet and empty your mind. It will not steer you wrong.

Overview/Advice, Transformation – Going with the Flow, Ace of Cups: The gift for riding the wave of emotion this week is that your internal guidance system is full-on, on the job.  You just have to follow it. It makes ALL the difference in the world. Stay tuned in and stay the course. I’m not gonna lie–transformation is very hard work. It’s also very much worth it.

Aug 17 affirmation backAffirmation – “I trust the process of life. There is a rhythm and a flow to Life and I am part of it. Life supports me and brings to me only good and positive experiences. I trust the process of life to bring me my highest good.”

This is a tough affirmation for me to completely get behind.

I get the concept, for sure. All that happens is what needed to happen, that’s the basic idea. But I’ll tell you, it doesn’t always feel like that, and I’m talking big ways as well as small. I cannot bring myself to call every experience “a positive one” because a really important part of my job it talking to people who are in pain. Can every experience be used to it’s full advantage? Sure! I’d even go so far as to say it may be for the highest good ultimately–even when it’s hard to see or say that. But damn. It can hurt in the process. And I’m not okay with sugar-coating that fact up.

You know what? I’m going with a compromise. “I trust.” That’s my affirmation for this week. Just trusting is hard work. And just trusting is enough.

Do you have a case of the feels?
