12/13/20: Dream it? Do it!

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

CONSIDER THIS YOUR FRIENDLY REMINDER: You are more capable than you realize. You are more powerful than know. You are 100% worthy.

If you have dreams, pursue them. If you have goals, go after them. If you want a life different than the one you currently have, create it.

The question is NOT who is going to let you: it’s who is going to stop you?

(NOTE: Absolutely no one is saying it will be easy, and certainly some bravery is required.)

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: IMAGINE. Your thoughts, words, and deeds, create your life. Dare to imagine what you want it to look like, then speak and act it into existence.

INFLUENCE: Justice (11). Karma arrives in her own time, teaches us valuable lessons, and moves on to the next student. Keep your eyes (and mind, and heart) open to the lessons – we are better for them.

INFLUENCE: Four of Cups. Do not choose discontent. Cultivate an attitude of gratitude – recognize your many blessings.

STRATEGY: Eight of Wands. There is no match for your full commitment. Focus your energy as well as your intentions.

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!

12/12/20: Don’t be in a hurry.

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

“Don’t hurry,” seems counterintuitive when your To Do List is rapidly becoming a To Do Essay but it really is the best course of action – intentional actions are preferable to hurried reactions. Slow and steady will win the race if you give yourself the opportunity to think things through, plan accordingly, and act mindfully.

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: YIN. Passive and patient are just as important as aggressive and urgent – take your time and pick your moments.

INFLUENCE: Four of Swords. Fatigue makes cowards of us all. Take a rest.

INFLUENCE: Eight of Cups. When you are ready to move on, do not be afraid to lace up your boots and go. Follow your heart where it may lead – but take your brain with you!

STRATEGY: Queen of Swords. Your mind is sharp, and so is your tongue – be mindful of your thoughts as well as your words.

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!

12/11/20: Be surprised – and grateful!

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

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: SERENDIPITY. What luck! You found something you didn’t even know you were seeking.

INFLUENCE: Six of Wands. Victory! Take a bow, and say thank you – you didn’t do it alone.

INFLUENCE: Three of Pentacles. Teamwork benefits your current project.

STRATEGY: Ace of Wands. New passions will reveal themselves. Enjoy the surge!

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!

12/10/20: Mindfulness is required.

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

While we cannot go back to the beginning and start again, it is never too late to make a change.

If you like everything you are getting, keep doing what you are doing. But if you do not like what you are getting (out of life, relationships, whatever), you must make changes – starting with yourself. However you start – big upheavals or small degrees – mindfulness will be required.

Whatever you decide to do, best of luck!

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: NEW LIFE. If you want to change your life, this is the time. Be brave. Be bold. Be mindful. And dare to pursue happiness, wherever it leads. NOTE: This is NOT The Devil – distractions are temporary relief, not happiness – pay attention to what you build (or knock down).

INFLUENCE: Three of Cups. You are not alone. Move forward with an attitude of gratitude, and make sure your people know how much they matter to you. Every moment is gift.

INFLUENCE: Three of Wands. Not all movement is progress. Take a step back, look for your best moment, then proceed. Let your passionate energy be a laser, not a cannon.

STRATEGY: Temperance (14). BALANCE IS THE KEY TO ALL SUCCESS. If you do not learn another thing from these readings, please learn this: there is nothing more important than balance to your life, to your health, to your relationships, to your career, to your absolutely everything – which is why it is a constantly recurring message.

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!

12/09/20: Do not be in a hurry to join the fray.

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

Not every battle is worth fighting. There are many issues worth going after hammer and tong; you must do your best to exercise wisdom and discretion. Action is important but reaction is a position of weakness. Decide where your effort and energy will yield the greatest positive impact before you get going. NOTE: This is not a question of strength, bravery, or commitment, but of applied resources.

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: CHAOS AND CONFLICT. You are not required to attend every argument just because you were invited. Take a step back – this is the ideal time to watch (and listen) more than you speak (or react). You may be surprised by what you learn.

INFLUENCE: Two of Wands. The choices we make actually matter. Be mindful. Choose wisely.

INFLUENCE: Page of Cups. DECLINE DRAMA. You do not need it, it does not serve, and this part of the road is already uphill.

STRATEGY: The Hanged Man (12). Change your perspective, and you change your life. Consider the possibility: You don’t know what you think you know. Take a step back, look again.

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!

12/08/20: Be brave, and move on.

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

“Did you ever have the feeling that wanted to go, but still had the feeling that you wanted to stay?” Jimmy Durante, The Man Who Came To Dinner

Change is not easy. Moving from a space that is comfortable enough (or not too uncomfortable, as the case may be), is not an easy jumping off point. And yet…

The time is now. Choose wisely. Best of luck!

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: TIME TO GO! You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here! There is nothing left to gain, move on.

INFLUENCE: Page of Swords. New ideas are everywhere. Keep your mind (and heart! and eyes!) all the way open for the best ideas for you.

INFLUENCE: Seven of Pentacles. Your growth is in direct proportion to your efforts and attention. Invest in yourself.

STRATEGY: Nine of Swords. DO NOT GIVE IN TO DRAMA! Most of your pain is self-inflicted; please stop, it is not serving you. Recognize the shadow work that must be faced, and get to it. Your light is much too important – stop playing with the dimmer switch!

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!

12/07/20: What happens next is up to you.

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

Choices. Choices. It really is all up to you – what will you do? Think it through, choose wisely.

NOTE: If your first choice does not work despite your best efforts, let it go and try something else. There is no shame in recognizing lessons (rather than desired successes) as the appropriate outcome.

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: POISED. You are in the right place; sit with calm patience, and wait for the moment that belongs to you. Leap accordingly.

INFLUENCE: Queen of Cups. Make your decisions from a place of heart – you know what feels right, and what does not.

INFLUENCE: The Hermit (9). When we know “alone” is not the same as “lonely,” we have no issue with self-reliance. You know what you bring to the table, no problem eating alone.

STRATEGY: Knight of Cups. If you are looking for romance, you are likely to find it. Choose wisely.

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!

12/06/20: Be honest with yourself!

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

Be honest with yourself first.

Why? Because if you can’t do that, you can’t do anything with authenticity.

When your mind wanders, where does it go? Are they all “good” memories? Probably not. Are they all “hurtful” reminders? I certainly hope not but for some people, negative pops up most vividly, usually because it is unresolved. For me, this is what shadow work is all about – facing what is unresolved in the past, accepting your own part, asking for forgiveness.

NOTE: When I ask for forgiveness (Forgive my frailties. Forgive my hubris. Forgive my ignorance. Etc.), though I speak it out loud to The Universe, I am predominantly speaking to myself. A big part of being honest with yourself is accepting your responsibility, and forgiving yourself. Not easy but too important to ignore.

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: BLESSED. Unforeseen gifts and blessings – keep your eyes open, be ready to receive. An attitude of gratitude will never go amiss.

INFLUENCE: Queen of Pentacles. Use your resources wisely but with a generous heart. Honor your attitude of gratitude this giving season.

INFLUENCE: The Devil (15). Distractions can provide needed breaks in our busy lives. CAUTION: This is a fine place to visit but you absolutely cannot live here! Do not settle in – have some fun and move on – you’ve got important work to do!

STRATEGY: Eight of Swords. Accept responsibility for your part of the situation – you got yourself into it, get yourself out. It may be difficult but it is not impossible – time to toughen up. You can do this, so get to it!

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!

12/05/20: Get it together!

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

If you are serious about making changes in your life, get your act together. There is plenty going on around you, and you are not necessarily the center. Be mindful.

And now, to the cards! 

THEME: OBSERVER. Keep your eyes, ears, and mind open – and your mouth shut! This is a time for studying the process, and watching what is unfolding.

INFLUENCE: Four of Cups. REJECT THE DRAMA! Do not bamboozle yourself into discontent.

INFLUENCE: King of Wands. Focus your passionate resolve on your sincere intentions.

STRATEGY: The Star (17). MAKE A WISH! And follow your star wherever it leads.

BE REAL. BE RAW. BE POWERFUL. YOU GOT THIS!
