Message of the Moment: The Page of Wands

I've often heard that the Pages represent young people or young adults.

I don't see 18-year-olds in the Pages, specifically in the Page of Wands.  I do, however, see a male with a hairy face here holding a stick and wondering what to do with it.  A stick is multipurpose after all, and it can be turned into so many things.  And although the male appears to be young, he can simply be young-looking

Energy and potential isn't reserved for young(er) folks only.  People of all ages can possess energy and a dynamic personality, and within them the potential and drive to keep moving in the best possible direction.  It might be important to take initiative at this time.  Some of us may have to dig deep for that stuff, but it can be found-- or it can just show up when you least expect it.

Keep in mind as well that pain, particularly physical pain, isn't only experienced by older adults. It can be experienced by everyone-- "young" or "old".  Pain is universal.  Try not to let it limit you too much.

While a single wand can indicate a beginning or first step in the (re)building process, I find it may also signify a certain missing piece of a puzzle.  For those of us who have been intending to do or say certain things or behave a certain way, this card goes from intention to action.  The reason could have to do with feeling supported, having a necessary tool, honing skills, and/or acknowledging assets and/or qualities.

And there will always be fears and doubts to contend with, even in relation to things we should already know and be 'seasoned' in.  Experience doesn't always matter because not all environments operate in a way we are accustomed to-- there will be something new to learn.

Surprise! There may be something worth waking up to in the mornings.  Or, some might dive into a new type of task, project/assignment, environment, job, etc., perhaps one they wouldn't have been caught dead doing or being a part of in the past. 

Some moves will shake things up!  In times of uncertainty, be uncertain.  Be a little unpredictable.  Shake.  Be shaken (it happens to all of us).  Dance if you can.

(I used to turn maneuvering through crowds of people in the city into something of a dance.)

Finally, through the Page of Wands, it will be possible to take the lead in entertainment whether of ourselves or others.  The idea is that some would like to keep busy, active, stimulated, engaged-- time moves faster that way.

Best feet forward!



  1. Insightful as usual! I liked especially the thought that old folks--like me--can have a dynamic personality. Thank you!

June's Message of the Moment: The Knave of Chalices

Well, here's a friendly face I haven't seen in a while... although, honestly, after April's draw, I'd be OK with the Tower, Death, Three of Swords, Ten of Swords, Seven of Swords, Ten of Wands, Nine of Wands, Seven of Wands, and so on and so on, etc.

So.  The Knave of Chalices, at least to me (AND KEEP DEM ONE-STAR REVIEWS COMING LIKE THIS IS EVER-FASCINATING-AND-TOTALLY-RELIABLE YELP HERE, FOLKS— thanks, I know how much my posts suck), is kindness personified.  

This card may represent an offer or invitation, a small opportunity or proposal, little tokens of appreciation, manners, compliments, toasts, and subtle acts of kindness.  For instance, think: "TG, have coffee with me."  

Then, think about TG likely having coffee with you because pretty much no one asks her to have coffee BUT.  What's important here is, TG loves coffee and it rocks her world.  Coffee may be kind of a small deal (you know, a small Knave of Chalices deal) to som…

Message of the Moment: The Nine of Pentacles

Yes, it's been awhile since I last posted a Tarot update.  And I have to admit: I missed you!  How have you been?
 I bet some have a lot to tell, good and sucky.  We may be full of stories and experiences now, as full as those bushes with coins up there. We may be even be ready to display these stories somehow, just as beautifully as those coins, all polished and pretty, are being displayed up there.
Full. Lush. Plush. Blossomed. Success(es). Enhancements. Savings. Cushions. Furnishings. Talents, skills,"gifts". Education...  These are among the words that come to mind whenever I see this card.  There is a richness to it, sort of like the richness one might find in certain, say, yummy French dishes. :) 
We wouldn't mind having a bit of that fullness, that richness and, dare I say, some may achieve just it this month. 'Something to show for it'.  The fruits (rewards) of our labor. Golden opportunities to maximize our resources, too.
Consider using these oppor…

Message of the Moment: The Nine of Swords

Mother of God, I'm so glad I pulled a nice stress-free card for April.

Whenever I pull a card like this, I'm always tempted to put it back in my deck.  Like, it can't be serious, right?  It just can't...

And if I'm pulling a card for a specific someone, I think, how the hell am I supposed to explain this one?  I mean... what if that someone is going through an overwhelming amount of poo already?  Does that person really need to see the Nine of Swords?  Do I really need to alert that person of an incoming episode of explosive diarrhea?

Happy... April?  (And if another reader/blogger draws a happier card, feel free to check out his/her interpretation while I stew in Nine of Swords juices over here.)

Since we're all dying to know what's on the menu, I figure I should start with the appetizer section... which includes worries and what-ifs and other (likely petty) annoyances.  A series of them, actually.  You know, the Nines in a suit are always so close to th…
