10/25/12: Repeat Broadcasts | Hierophant

hierophant-zombie-tarot

See what I mean about the Zombie Tarot’s repeats? Those Zombie’s never give you a minutes breathing room!

The Hierophant’s back and I’m listening: pay attention to whom you follow. Where are you placing your trust? Is that a reputable channel with a knowledgeable anchorman or just a lot of static in a suit? Study what he’s got to say, but only if you’re convinced he knows what he’s talking about.

What do you see here?

10/24/12: 2nd Wedding? Zombie Rerun! | 3 of Cups

three-cups-zombie-tarotOH MY GOD! Did I not tell you the Zombie Tarot is a fan of the repeats? I pulled this fresh.

(Fresh Zombies. Snort.)

And after I pulled this and another (REPEAT) for tomorrow, I thought, “Gee, I’d better do some more shuffling!” I mean, yes, I had already shuffled some before pulling cards. I always do. But I’d better do some more.

And that’s when it hit me—Zombies love to shuffle! HAHAHA!

A cheeky deck…

But anywho…we’ve got the Three of Cups. And I’m reminded of something that came up in one (or 3) of those Chakra 1-Card Reading video series I did recently: the connection between love and money.

If you’re into astrology, you know we’re talking two expressions of Venus. If we’re putting it in Charka terms, it’s the heart. But whatever terms we’re talking, if the passion in your life is blocked, shut down, shriveled up or otherwise impaired, if you’re heart’s not full-on open, you won’t be able to draw what you want, be it love or money.

Whatever you do in this realm, it doesn’t matter so much the consensus of your mother or your brother or your best friend’s dog,  any of whom may think very little of you’re tying the knot with what they see as simply one of the undead. If it’s your sweetheart (and you’re hers), nothing else matters Love makes the rest flow. If it’s not, no amount of wishing is going to turn that Zombie into a princess. She has to already be YOUR princess going on.

Are you feeling the passion?

10/23/12: Writing your own show | Hierophant

hierophant-zombie-tarotHar! I just love renditions of the Hierophant as TV announcer. Like the Housewives Tarot by the same creators, the Zombie Tarot pokes a bit of fun at whom society turns to for the last word in traditional wisdom.

There’s something to be said, for following the traditional path—at least, to a point. You can learn something from the documentaries that teach the untold secrets, but with a caveat.

You have to always be your own fact-checker. Seek the knowledge of the bigger world, sure. Pay attention to the wisdom of the ages—or the sages on TV, if that’s where you find your wisdom. But never, ever, ever deny it for the wisdom of your heart.

No truth is your truth until you make it your own. Study, learn, grow. And then extend beyond the sum of what you’ve seen on TV. This is how you write your own show.

Do you have a path you follow, or do you tend to write your own wisdom?

10/22/12: Love your crew as-is | 3 of Cups

3-cups-zombie-tarotLook at how proud and happy that groom shines!She may not be technically alive, but he loves her as is. Touching, isn’t it?

This makes me think of Captain Virgo. We’ve been married 23 years now. That’s the age I was when we married up, 23. He’s been with me when I was fat, when I was thin, and everything in between. Through ebbs and flows, happy and sad, easy and hard times, it’s always been the the two of us.

One thing that’s been consistent (beyond the change) however, is the attitude of acceptance.

People ask me with some regularity, how he feels about being married to a Tarot reader.

And see, this hasn’t been an issue. One thing we have in common is absolute respect for one another’s right to determine our own course. I don’t try to change him. He doesn’t try to change me. We walk side-by-side, not in lockstep.

Those around you? Choose them based on who they ARE,  love them (or not) based on who they are, not who you might imagine they could be. That is your true community. If you are trying to change somebody else, you don’t really accept them at all, you know?

Loving as-is is a very powerful act. It enhances the light of both giver and receiver. It makes the relationship more than it was before, more than a sum of individual parts. I don’t care if you think you know better or if you could come up with some improvements (I’m looking at you, Virgo!), or if you have some “constructive criticism.”

Either accept or let go, stay or leave, it’s up to you. But if we’re talking about love, do it real to do it right. Anything else is just play-acting.

What’s your experience with unconditional love?

10/21/12: Check your mail! | Page of Hazards

page-pentacles-zombie-tarot-hazzards

Check your mail. There’s a message coming in. Maybe it’s overt, or maybe not so much, but if you wonder if someone is trying to tell you something, the answer is “yes.” There is most DEFINITELY a message with your name on it.

The Page of Pentacles (aka Hazards in Zombie Tarot parlance) frequently brings news—of a job, of a child, of something physical and real-world. While pages can refer to young situations or actual children, this adorable little undead representative is chained to the mailbox and carrying a whole bag full of news. He’s got something to tell you.

If you’re waiting on news, it won’t be much longer. Keep an eye out for the scoop, because it’s coming your way!

Are you waiting on news? Have you gotten any recently?

10/20/12: Do what you need to do, Zombie Hunter! | 2 of Swords

2-swords-zombie-tarot

This Zombie-hunter has a choice to make.  He keeps his eyes blindfolded, dispassionately weighing out options. As a perk, the expressions of his zombified former friends aren’t going to sway him from doing what he needs to do.

The Two of Swords usually shows us a bit of a standoff. Even in the traditional RWS version, there are emotions at play, but in the background. The Swords are all about rational thinking, after all, so those emotional considerations probably need to be put aside while options are carefully weighed out. My apologies to the Libras in the room. I know y’all struggle enough with this already.

A pros and cons list is an excellent tactic when you’re faced with a Two of Swords decision. Prioritizing, planning, spread-sheeting, or otherwise carefully adding up the figures are all helpful here. While I’m usually a “listen to your heart” kind of gal, when you see this card, it’s a head-over-heart kind of day. If you listen to your heart, you’ll be forever deadlocked in this dilemma.

Take your time, think things through, and then do what you need to do. That’s what gets you through the night safely, zombie hunter!

You having a Two of Swords time?
