Message of the Moment: The Six of Swords

Ugh.  This journey is lame.  It's lame...just like my life.  

At least Blogger remembers that I like my Tarot images centered on the page.  That's always helpful.

In any case, yeah, the Six of Swords.  It's a super exciting card to pluck as you can see from the image above.  Like, you can just tell-- you can just tell that the captain (?) of this ship is thrilled to be taking on this particular mission.  I mean, why wouldn't he or she be, especially as we consider the enthusiasm oozing from the passenger?

And stop me before I get into a serious analysis of the passenger.  He or she doesn't even want to be identified, which may tell you everything you need to know about this trip.

So, this trip is clearly anything but ideal.  This card, in general, feels like kind of a drag.  It's cloudy out, the water isn't exactly pristine, and all the passenger of this boat wants to do is be draped in blankets and remain hidden underneath a giant hood.

The passenger just wants to get 'this' done, and not be 'bothered' by someone who recognizes him or her on the street.  Goodness knows he or she can do without the small talk today.

But, the captain recognizes that he or she still has a job to do.  And it's a job.  It keeps the captain busy, entertained, sane even.  And even though I can't see the expression on the captain's face, I like to think that deep down in this person is a golden grain of gratitude for something to do (maybe well).  Something that keeps him or her from dwelling on bullshit which can really take a hold over people.

I happen to enjoy cloudy days.  And while I hate to go through on certain 'missions', I do them anyway... especially if they're temporary.

As is the case in this card: whatever this mission is, whether you're the passenger or the caption-- the mission is temporary

So, hang in there.  Play some good music.  You're fine.  Try to channel patience for yourself and others in this less-than-desirable situation because there is certainly a light at the end of the tunnel.  Or... just an end.  An end or a point to the situation/decision/journey/mission may be all you need to focus on here.

And remember: even ideal situations can be, or quickly turn into, less-than-desirable ones. 

♫  Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's over... 

You're certainly not 'over'.

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…
