JUNE 2020: Fire Signs

IMG_6582

((The Lightseer’s Tarot by Chris Anne AND Wisdom of the Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid))

HELLO, FIRE BABIES! 

I don’t know about you but I am finding 2020 to be the worst subscription box yet!

Remember when we thought things would be looking up by June? 

As if fires, plague, and murder hornets were not enough, we now kick off June with on-going reports of civil commotion across the country (in the US), and China squaring off with India in earnest over Himalayan borderland? 

JANE! STOP THIS CRAZY THING!

As so often happens, the keys to making things better are entirely in our own hands – particularly true for action-motivated Fire – so let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work.

ARIES: LOYAL HEART/10 of Cups: It’s all about love right now; your ability, and willingness, to devote yourself (and your resources) to what moves you heart is put to the test. Your consistency is the key – make the changes you want to see.

LEO: TICK-TOCK/Magician: Pay attention; Divine Timing is at work! Keep your senses on high alert, apply your resourcefulness where it is most needed, and don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty if it comes to it.

SAGITTARIUS: THE FATES/Queen of Wands: Karma calling! Things happen with or with out you – remember, not choosing is a choice – this is the right time to invest your creative passion into serious problem solving. This is NOT the time to avoid responsibility.

 

 

 

What your card reader won’t tell you. (Or STOP ASKING THAT QUESTION!!)

Hello, All!

I hope everyone is warm and well, weathering the pandemic safely wherever you are. As you may have noticed, this blog has taken a pandemic hiatus; just a rest and recharge for a bit but getting ready to come back very soon.

While resting, I began to think about readings, readers, clients, spreads, cards – you know, tarot stuff – and I began to think about one of the things readers always talk about when we are together: the questions clients ask. 

The questions fall into two large categories, Love and Money (all things Venus, really), and they breakdown as follows:

  1. LOVE: Everything that matters to people emotionally: sex, lovers, partners, spouses, family, children, pets  
  2. MONEY: These things make, or cost, money and resources: job, home, health, prospects, projects 

Naturally, these questions are a card reader’s bread and butter; people have questions, need help with clarity and focus, and card readers are here to help….but some questions, simply do not require cards. Some questions, no matter how many times they are asked, do not rise above mundane answers.

  • COMMON QUESTIONS: Will he cheat? / Will he cheat again?
  • APPROPRIATE MUNDANE ANSWER: Of course he will! And you already know it. Cheaters cheat – it is in their nature unless they choose otherwise, which takes the kind of emotional/spiritual/mental work most people just do not want to do. If he was a cheater when you met him (perhaps he cheated with you?), you already know the answer. 
  • COMMON QUESTIONS: Will he leave his wife? / Will he choose me?
  • APPROPRIATE MUNDANE ANSWER: He may very well leave his wife but that won’t be about (or for) you. His choosing you is incredibly unlikely (or he would have done it already), and have you considered the likelihood he’s just a cheater? Because really, the simplest answer is generally the correct one. 
  • COMMON QUESTIONS: Should I see a doctor?
  • APPROPRIATE MUNDANE ANSWER: YES! The very fact that you thought to ask means you already KNOW you need a doctor! (NOTE: Follow-up often includes pre-doctor questions that boil down to diagnoses – DO NOT DO THAT! It’s not fair to the card reader, and it’s dangerous. Just call the doctor!)

Just getting that off my chest. Thank you for indulging my rant. 

And as always, be happy, safe, warm, and well wherever you are.

04/24-26/20 WEEKEND: Change for the better.

IMG_6428

((The Green Witch Tarot, Ann Moura))

As we walk into the last week of April, quarantine continues, and some people are becoming unreasonably antsy (read: protesting for haircuts and restaurants) when calm is what is needed.

I understand calm can be difficult for some people – turns out, adulthood is difficult.*

Our weekend takeaway: This is an opportunity to change for the better, and it is in your best interests to take advantage of it, whatever that means for you.

No matter what you decide to do for yourself or others, do it with joy and gratitude. There are ALWAYS reasons to be grateful.

Enjoy the weekend.

*NOTE: There are many people with legitimate conditions (physical, mental, spiritual, emotional) that prevent easy access to personal calm. So far, I find people with underlying conditions are working very hard at achieving and maintaining calm. I am referring to the people who really should know better but are, overall, to self-centered to be bothered.

04/23/20: Stand in your power.

((The Green Witch Tarot, Ann Moura))

At the risk of sounding like Moana, REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE!

It is very easy to forget we are not powerless; do not fall into this trap.

This is the second appearance of High Priestess this week – she knows we need reminding. 

Consider yourself reminded.

04/22/20 MIDWEEK: FOCUS!

MIDWEEK REMINDER: Passion can be a great tool if you are focused.

This is not a time for half-efforts; if you want to do something, commit to it and do the best you can.

04/20/20: Worry will not help.

((The Green Witch Tarot, Ann Moura))

This new week should bring more sunshine, more warmth, and increased health.

We are all working to bend the COVID-19 curve to flat, and with any luck, we will begin to see our progress this week – this is NOT the time to stop our efforts. We cannot let up just because we’ve got it on the ropes – that is exactly the time to really level the opponent!

Ten of Wands advises our victories come with significant responsibilities; no problem as High Priestess has all the power you need. Right now, our powers are best used to finish what we have started – keep making bread (or whatever), and be safe – every battle is a step closer to winning the war. 

NOTE: Worry doesn’t help. Do not fret about what you are “giving up,” “missing out,” or any other “are we there yet?” whining you are doing to yourself. Be in the moment, do the best you can (different on any given day), and do not get caught up in the things you cannot do anything about. This is a marathon, not a sprint; patience is required.

TINY HAPPY THINGS

04/16/20: Reminiscing…

IMG_6234

((The Green Witch Tarot, Ann Moura))

A little nostalgia never hurt anyone – it can be a beautiful place to visit – but you cannot live there. Enjoy your memories, share your stories, re-tell favorite jokes, look at old photos….

…and then get back to the present moment because you still have plenty to do.
