Message of the Moment: The King of Swords

A little stern, a little grumpy.  A little stern and grumpy... possibly with reason. 
We've been around this block before, and, honestly, we may be going round this block many more times so fasten that familiar little seatbelt and try to entertain and challenge yourself.  Consider breathing as well as sounds that generally help clear your head.
Oh, and please excuse some if they're not exactly enthused, thrilled, or leaping out of their chairs in certain situations. They may be 'over it'.
As for intelligence or smarts or sense, which tend to be represented by the Swords, just where do we think that stuff comes from? 
Hint: it doesn't come from thin air.  It is all earned, folks.  Yes, from that aforementioned block, from practice, from trial and error.
Some may have enough practice at this point.  Others may be all people'd out (not cold).  Grant yourself and/or others a break as necessary.
If some feel uncomfortable around others, it may be due to bullsh*t detectors that are on and in full force.  Run-arounds and lies and excuses and even indecision have grown annoying and tiresome. 
That being said, should you need time to make a decision, please let others know and try to include a deadline for said decision.  There are things to be done around here!  Places to go.  Sights to see (or see again).  Goals some wish to accomplish.  Tests some want to take or proctor.  Training some would like to be a part of or offer. 
Sharpen those pencils... and tongues... and brains.  This is a card about a serious or big communication session.  This is a card about a major goal. 
This is a card about... major wits.  Wits are sure hot.  Test them.  Consider playing games that activate and challenge your brain.  I'm a fan of Scrabble, and I recently (finally) beat my computer at a game!
Oh, and the less lies we tell, the less details we'll have to remember.  The less lies in an account, the shorter it will be, and the more likely it'll be that many (not just you) will understand it.  Be aware of whatever it is you're trying to convince yourself or others of.
If you can't handle a task, admit it, then kindly step aside and allow someone else to handle it.  I'm not trying to be harsh, but the King of Swords doesn't have the most patience on the planet.  Look at his face.  If you can't understand his facial expression, if you can't "read" those eyes, I really don't know what to tell you.
Evidence helps. 
Look, you're smart enough.  But, just in case you don't think you're smart enough, for the love of all that is good, TRY to acquire information and knowledge with the King of Swords at your cute little side.  Doing something teaches us all something.
Some may know more about something than they think and should give themselves a break.
Short simple instructions are always a good start.  Wait for your turn to speak.  Someone is going to listen.  And you do some listening, too-- you never know what you'll learn.
All best!

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…
