Message of the Moment: The Queen of Pentacles

Well, holy crap-- I'm not so sh*tty!

The Queen of Pentacles will serve as the Card of July.  
But,  it's July 7th!

 Yeah, I know.  I'm usually a tiny bit late to most events so... I haven't really surprised myself here.  

I'm delighted to see this card because this Queen's feet are bare!  Comfortable.  Free.  Soaking up the sun, feeling a breeze, playing with soil, making sure the ground is 'still there'.  We use our sensitive feet for walking purposes, typically, so this card could be recommending light, comfortable, "practical" footwear.  Or, perhaps the remedy some need is a delicious surface beneath their feet such as sand, grass, soil,  even  warm rocks or pavement.

 The ground is 'still there', folks.  No matter the turbulence (of late), some have landed just fine, safe and sound.  No matter how many moves have been made, some are very much capable of commitment and discipline-- and the Queen of Pentacles will see to it that we remain committed to a particular goal without stressing out or worrying too much.  Heck, some commitments/goals may even be enjoyable.

The Queen of Pentacles, after all, isn't worrying... because she's already imagined a worst-case scenario, planned ahead, saved money for a rainy day, got some of her ducks in row, organized, cleaned, run errands, attended appointments, made room (or a special/designated space) for productivity/success/accomplishment.  We can finish what we've started, and feel absolutely terrific about it!

We're OK, settling in, feeling better, dreading less, getting into a beneficial routine.

Where would you like to feel more stability?  The ground beneath your own 'feet'? 

Work at it.  We work everyday, many of us, even if some don't hold a 9-5 job.  Keep going, because you'll be satisfied with results.  You will see signs of growth.  At the very least, potential will become apparent to you and others as you go.

Speaking of results, evidence or proof is important to the Queen of Pentacles.  She prefers something she can see, touch/feel, smell, taste.

Women may be a focus of the month of July, with some 'rising', maximizing capabilities, refining skills.  Even a new skill may be easier to develop, and turn into a practice, than originally thought.  And it may lead to more lucrative opportunities.

Remember the value that you bring to a situation, and hang onto it... just as the Queen of Pentacles holds onto her pentacle.  Act like you are valuable.  The Queen cares for/nurtures, humbly displays, and appreciates her pentacle.  She's not holding onto that pentacle for dear life, frightened about letting it go-- she is calmly ensuring nothing happens to it. She might even have her pentacle appraised!  

Anyway, whether you or someone else notices it this month, you are valued.  And some will have no trouble 'getting real' or helping others 'get real'.

Happy July!

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…
